    We've written at length about the Obama administration's criminal weaponization of the agencies of the Federal government against the American people. Just look at the case of General Michael Flynn, and the fact that it is STILL ongoing, and you have all the information you need to know about internal Federal corruption.

    However, there is a much bigger story overseas when it comes the horrific consequences of Obama's reign.

    We all know about the weakness. We've heard about Barack's red lines in Syria that didn't exist. We've heard about Obama's castration of our military capability. We've heard how Putin annexed Crimea and essentially Donbass during the Obama presidency. We've heard about the recurring massive hacks of our defense industrial complex and Federal agencies by China during Obama's decade.

    The list goes on and on and on. There are real consequences to weakness...and none of them are good for a nation.

    But there is more.

    There is the complete loss of American moral authority during the Obama years.


    The so-called 'Arab Spring' was a foreign policy disaster. It wasn't a 'spring' at all but an attempt to remove autocrats in the Middle East who kept the lid on the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic extremism, two of Barack's favorite causes.

    Egypt is a perfect example. Strong man Hosni Mubarack was deposed in an Obama push to install the Muslim Brotherhood in this strategic nation. The effort was successful, until the Egyptian army took things back under their control a few years later. Obama's agenda was patently obvious during the entire ordeal.

    The list goes on where Obama attempted to get rid of dictators in the Middle East, some successful, others not. Libya, Syria, et cetera.

    In Syria, Obama literally organized an army of jihadists to oppose Bashar Assad and used American Special Forces to train them. We've written about this extensively.

    The Benghazi incident still needs to be properly investigated and explained. Something nefarious was going on there by the Obama Administration, and it wasn't good for our national security. Perhaps he was running guns through Libya to the Syrian jihadis; maybe we'll never know.

    Obama's corruption when propping up the Shia Islamic, terrorist regime of Iran is old news. The billions of cash delivered in the night, John Kerry's prostrations in front of the mullahs which ended up generating the seditious JCPOA, which essentially gave the killers of Tehran the bomb, are all legendary for the wrong reasons.

    In short, our adversaries eventually figured out that Obama was an Islamist sympathizer who found himself the most powerful man in the world. They no longer saw America as the beacon of light for free people, that even the worst communist killer in the world respected at some level. They began to see America as just another corrupt hell hole run by Islamists that eventually would decline and fall; so, they began to push on the first domino.

    I've sat down with many Ukrainian patriots who marvel in disgust at the behavior of the American State Department, CIA, FBI and USAID in Ukraine, where the corruption of these agencies, along with the Clinton campaign, the DNC, and the Biden crime family was, as still is, rampant. All serving themselves instead of the American people. Where's that $4 billion again Joe? Ukraine still is nothing but a cesspool of Deep State Department highly organized crime.

    With all of this in mind, our adversaries began taking territory. They began propaganda campaigns that painted America as corrupt and only out for certain interests. America was no longer the 'shining city on the hill', they said. America was now a still rich but declining banana republic, corrupt to the core as any Latin or Eastern European dictator would appreciate.

    There are real consequences to this moral decline. We see it in the news every day. China's behavior in the South China Sea, Beijing's genocide of the Uighers, and its robust organ-harvesting industry from political prisoners may not have happened if America had been stronger.

    President Trump sees this phenomenon. The rebuilding of our military was job one, one that he has accomplished to stop the encroachment of darkness around the world. Now POTUS has to root out the corruption in our diplomatic corp, security services, and military.

    It's a big job for the second term, but it's a job Trump can do, and is uniquely suited for.

    Righteous leadership makes all the difference in the world.

    You are right on the money. I was in Iraq 2007 to 2011. I never saw such waste and corruption. The US shipped literally tons of $100 bills there. Where the hell are they now? The US built dozens of school buildings, complete with playgrounds that are better than those my own kids used. The Iraqis refused to use them so they sat idle. The list is long. The worst fiasco was the building of the largest Embassy Building in the world which sits empty and is inhabited only by Black Water type mercenaries to guard it at great risk to themselves. Obama's corruption knows no limits.

    Another great article Mr. Wood…..always 'spot on' and totally true. If people weren't paying attention then they wouldn't know what you're trying to explain....some of us(Political Junkies) have Always paid attention and KNEW that Obama was horrible for America, because everything about him is a LIE, and HE is a Pathological Liar...ALL HIS LIFE.

    There is an interesting video online by Author, Joel Gilbert who after a two year investigation of Obama discovered MANY things that would perhaps surprise those who 'just want to live their lives, work and take care of their families'.....We look into these things, and come to realize just HOW MUCH THIS FRAUD DID AGAINST AMERICA IN HIS QUEST TO 'TAKE DOWN THIS REPUBLIC."

    Anyway getting back to Mr. Joel Gilbert the book he wrote is nowhere to be had now, but he is offering a free One Hour Video online and EVERYONE should See/Hear this video. He wrote his book: "Dreams From My REAL Father" and has NEVER been sued, as Obama would NOT want to call any MORE ATTENTION TO HIS LYING SELF. What Obama WAS HIDING was Not his birthplace so much, as WHO his real father is: "Frank Marshall Davis-Communist of Chicago/Hawaii" when Communists were STILL THE BOOGEY MAN IN THE EARLY 60'S.

    There are pictures in this video that show Obama Sr./Obama/Frank M. Davis side by side, and I'd say "There is NO Question of WHO Obama's REAL FATHER REALLY WAS"...Along with Davis' children by his white wife, that oddly "DO resemble Obama also!"


    ON THE NET: Just need to type in search: "Joel Gilbert, Author-the video will come up as well!"

    Thanks for a great article.
    I haven't read "Currency" yet and I feel bad about it.
    It's not military sci-fi and now I'm doing the Latin Vulgate.
    I'm not even sure where it is since I have over 1000 books in a small apartment.


    No thinking person in Russia or probably anywhere else believes the Neo Con Republicans (Trotkyites) or the Democrat Party (Stalinist/Maoist) leadership actually represent the views and wishes of the American people or their Character.. Portraying the CIA construct Obama in a Cowboy outfit is actually insulting to the American People.. We have for some time now been trying very hard to rid ourselves of these Globalist Carpet Baggers... with a modicum of success...
