Obama Is A City of One

This president is so immature he’s becoming a national embarrassment.

First he snubs the NATO Secretary General who was in town this week:

President Barack Obama has yet to meet with the new head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and won’t see Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg this week, even though he is in Washington for three days. Stoltenberg’s office requested a meeting with Obama well in advance of the visit, but never heard anything from the White House, two sources close to the NATO chief told me.

The leaders of almost all the other 28 NATO member countries have made time for Stoltenberg since he took over the world’s largest military alliance in October. Stoltenberg, twice the prime minister of Norway, met Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa to discuss the threat of the Islamic State and the crisis in Ukraine, two issues near the top of Obama’s agenda.

Kurt Volker, who served as the U.S. permanent representative to NATO under both President George W. Bush and Obama, said the president broke a long tradition. “The Bush administration held a firm line that if the NATO secretary general came to town, he would be seen by the president … so as not to diminish his stature or authority,” he told me.

America’s commitment to defend its NATO allies is its biggest treaty obligation, said Volker, adding that European security is at its most perilous moment since the Cold War. Russia has moved troops and weapons into eastern Ukraine, annexed Crimea, placed nuclear-capable missiles in striking distance of NATO allies, flown strategic-bomber mock runs in the North Atlantic, practiced attack approaches on the U.K. and Sweden, and this week threatened to aim nuclear missiles at Denmark’s warships.

“It is hard for me to believe that the president of the United States has not found the time to meet with the current secretary general of NATO given the magnitude of what this implies, and the responsibilities of his office,” Volker said…

“Hard to believe” this? Obama appears to go out of his way to play hardball all by himself. The NATO Secretary General is a former prime minister of Norway and his politics are the leftist variety of which Obama is so fond.

Perhaps our president, with less than two years left to serve, is simply bored and menopausal. Perhaps he had a golf week scheduled. Or maybe March Madness basketball interfered with having to perform pesky duties. Maybe Stoltenberg refused ahead of time to kiss his ring. Whatev.

That oddity was but a passive-aggressive insult; it doesn’t begin to reach the level of his newest revenge on Israel for refusing to knuckle under. How dare they re-elect a prime minister Obama loathes? Now it’s time to bring his gun to a knife fight in a petty display of power:

Israel National News reports: [my emphasis – D]

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.

Another highly suspicious aspect of the document is that while the Pentagon saw fit to declassify sections on Israel’s sensitive nuclear program, it kept sections on Italy, France, West Germany and other NATO countries classified, with those sections blocked out in the document.

The 386-page report entitled “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations” gives a detailed description of how Israel advanced its military technology and developed its nuclear infrastructure and research in the 1970s and 1980s.

Israel is “developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level,” reveals the report, stating that in the 1980s Israelis were reaching the ability to create bombs considered a thousand times more powerful than atom bombs.

The revelation marks a first in which the US published in a document a description of how Israel attained hydrogen bombs…

It may be the case that this declassified material is already well-known among global intelligence agencies. But at the very least such carefully chosen revelations send a message to the citizens of Israel. The question is, what message did Obama intend, and what message did Israelis receive? Those may be two entirely different communications.

The message the American people are getting in the last month or so is that our President is a City of One. He is imperious, which is a problem in a democratic culture but it’s one we can deal with; we have before. But his gross incompetence in foreign affairs, an incompetence only the media and the Left is willing to ignore, is metastasizing. It grows more obvious by the day. We are long past scandals and into the land of severely compromised morality.

No, we shouldn’t impeach him. That is exactly what he wants: to start a race war while he sits back and pontificates. Instead, it’s time for world leaders to show some spine, to build one of their famous cordons sanitaires in order to limit this Peace Prize recipient’s tantrums and rage. Step up to the plate, Western world. Show some spine. Leave him to fester in his Oval Office until it’s time for his departure.

Only then can the world breathe a sigh of relief.

  1. Well, here’s a question.

    Why does Israel need hydrogen bombs 1000 times as powerful as the Hiroshima or Nagasaki bombs? The blast radius increases at approximately the cube root of the power of the blast, so the blast radius of the hydrogen bomb will be about 30 times that of the Nagasaki bomb, which comes to about 30 miles. So, about 3,000 square miles will be devastated in the bombed country, aside from the electromagnetic pulses which will ruin all electronics in probably twice that area.

    These calculations are very, very, very rough, but probably err on the side of conservative.

    I’m wondering if this is necessary for Israel’s defense.

    • I think your answer could be that the Jews have decided not to go to the gas chambers this time around and are intent on taking many, if not all of those who would slaughter them given the opportunity.

        • oldguy:
          Do you mean to say that you hope Israel sends a bomb with the destination of Washington DC?
          If so, it might affect The Baron and Dymphna (though I have little to no understanding of the logistics of how far the fallout in D.C. would affect the Commonwealth [of Virginia].
          Also, keep in mind that there are still a few of us (myself included) who reside in the general vicinity of the capital, and who understand what’s really going on. So, said fallout would also affect me, and probably a few other straight-thinking folks who live near Sodom-on-the-Potomac.
          Just a thought.

          • Obviously, I didn’t see oldguy’s hopes and wishes or they wouldn’t have gotten on here. Since there’s a response, I’ll leave it up. But I’ll be watching more closely in the future. A bomb to D.C. indeed!

            “Sodom-on-the-Potomac”?? Very good. And when Billy-boy comes to town, the S factor goes way up. Mothers hide their children; husbands beg their wives not to go to town. He’s so creaky now you’d think he’d have slowed down. But maybe that is the nature of compulsions. John Updike would hide in a rack of women’s dresses near a window in a mall so he could gaze on all that aching beauty. Such a shame…it’s some kind of malformation or metastasis of greed, methinks.

          • Sorry. I guess I wasn’t thinly veiled enough. I should express myself more like Nemesis did above.

    • To quote a famous stateswoman, “what difference, at this point, does it make?”

      Notice they were all calculations. Since every European calculation was redacted we don’t know how to put Israel’s in perspective. Which is perhaps the intention.

    • There is a true phrase that covers this issue.

      “If the Arabs (Muslims) put down their weapons today there would be no more violence. If the Israelis put down their weapons today there would be no more Israel.”

      I am not worried about the size of the Israeli nukes.

  2. Seems that the community organizer isn’t that interested in organizing or doesn’t know how to organize communities that he doesn’t like or doesn’t understand, and that’s having disasterous results. Either that or he really is a Manchurian Candidate. I’m not sure it matters because the actual effects may be the same either way.

    • In one of his autobiographies (the absurdity of TWO of them before he ascended the throne!) BHO says that community organizing doesn’t work and that’s why he’s giving it up.

      Saul Alinsky wrote about real communities w/ some sense of cohesion. LBJ’s War on Poverty/Welfare State destroyed that for urban blacks. He knew it, too. A true Dem Socialist at heart, he did it for the votes that would accrue. Just as the English were sold out via immigration waves that would vote the right way. Make that the “correct” way.

  3. Obama is the Islamic Manchurian Candidate. He has routinely played the Muslim card.

    Obama will shock the world before he leave office.

    • It’s not only Obama. You may be correct; he most likely will shock the world before he leaves office, but from this article we can see that the main problem is people in the various government departments (IRS, Pentagon) who are willing to sell their honour (and their souls) by obeying their fearless leader.

      The Pentagon, for example, has worked with Israel for many years, and (it seems) they have a tacit understanding of what Israel is about. They also have a two-way partnership when it comes to intelligence. Who in the Pentagon, agreed to provide the data that Obama wanted to expose to the world?

      In other words, Obama can do nothing without the willing co-operation of many others, mostly in high places.

  4. Not that Stoltenberg is worth meeting, being one of those traitors who welcomed the enemy into Norway, but I really wish our PM Harper, who gets it so right about islam, would wake up to the fact Russia is not our enemy, and the present gangsters running Ukraine are not exactly anyone to cosy up to–nor is Obama.

    Personally I think uncle Vlad. is just playing games with an American President and other western leaders he probably despises for their stupidity and cowardice, but being a muslim (there is no record anywhere of Obama’s having converted to Christianity) places Obama in a different category.

    What to do with him? Your last paragraph, Lady D, is the most sensible; though actually I’d love to see him led away in chains!

    • Um, Peter, Stoltenbrg was born in 1959. A little late to be a Quisling.
      (look it up if you don’t know what I’m talking about.)

      • A quisling is the same as an American calling someone a Benedict Arnold. And then there is gerrymandering, and chauvinism. IOW, we know what Peter35 was trying to convey. We especially know it here at GoV because that’s what Norway called our good friend, Fjordman. But then Norway has been called a totalitarian democracy so we can leave that opinion aside. Yes, six million Norwegians can indeed be wrong. Though not as wrong as a similar number of Swedes. Poor Swedes. No wonder they have a turnip named after them…my favorite turnip, too.

      • Um, Nicholas, I thought it was obvious I’m talking about the ‘here and now’, (the invasion of Eurabia by third world Islamic masses) not what happened 70 years ago, but I’ve got things wrong too on occasion, we’re only human, right?

        Thanks for understanding, Lady D. BTW, this is OT, but back in 1964 or thereabouts I was working on a Hydro Dam in the South Island of NZ, and the electrical contractor was ASEA of Sweden. They had a crew there, Swedes, Norwegians and one Finn and I got to know them, since I spoke Norwegian and therefore could also understand Swedish.

        On one hunting trip I took them on we saw a sign: “Swedes 2/6 a bag” and Carl Erik (Swede) had me stop while he took a photo. They were a good lot, I too wonder……

  5. Nope.
    It’s actually up to us.
    Soetoro is our mess and it is up to us to clean it up.
    Too bad that he’s BLAAAAAAACKK–and thus the ‘opposition’ lacks the (redacted anatomical reference) to do anything about it.
    Or anything else, for that matter.

  6. Why should he care? He’s been floating his way through life ever since high school. All sorts of elites have carried his water and picked up after his messes so of course he feels bored and fobs off meetings with important dignitaries.

    Besides who will tell him to clean up his act? There is no one. The press corp are his lackies. The Republicans are terrified of him, Boehner and McConnell have both allied themselves with the Democrats and are dependent on them for their jobs.

    As for the European leaders, he knows they are a joke. They have no real clout and are essentially wards of the U.S. in terms of defense. The top NATO position is essentially a political plumb job that’s meaningless and takes his orders from the Pentagon.

    But fear not, China and Russia are working around this clown, economically and politically.

    • I just wonder what the Dems have over Boehner and McConnell, what kind of dirt file have they hidden somewhere that gets these quislings on side?

      • I don’t think they need a dirt file, just a MSM that enables them to convince a gullible public that any political crisis is ALWAYS “the Republican’s fault.” So any attempt to draw a line in the sand and stick to it (such as with anything that might lead to a government “shutdown”) is doomed to failure. No matter how unreasonable or even unconstitutional the democrats are, it’s always the Republican’s fault.

        • Doesn’t matter because the press hates the GOP guts anyway. The Repubs could simply defund some of the Democrats favorite organizations that do nothing like the DoJ, DHS, HUD and NEA. Then sit back for a couple of months as Obama throws a titanic tantrum.

          Inside of 3 months Emperor Obama would come out of his bubble world and beg the House to restore funds.

          Here’s the thing people miss: Being a congressman isn’t a career – you are up there to accomplish things and then leave. People like Boehner, McCain and others are a poison that turns these offices into self-enrichment programs.

      • No dirt or anything, they are just so despicable RINOS. The House Republicans hate Boehner’s guts to point they’ve tried to get rid of him as Speaker. He is only hanging on because he allied himself with Pelosi and the Democrats on key issues like amnesty and keeping Obamacare afloat.

        McConnell is a corrupt insider who needs to be replaced.

  7. Obama must have spent considerable time pulling the wings off of flies and setting cats on fire as a child. When he wasn’t bouncing on Frank Marshall Davis’ – uh, knee.

    Obama’s hatred of the military is only exceeded by his hatred of Netanyahu. This narcissistic, petulant, puling, immature creature has shown the world how far American voters have fallen, how badly our culture has degenerated, that we would permit this excrescence to occupy the Oval Office, not once but twice.

    • Yeah, and we did the same thing with Nixon, a public embarrassment from my own backyard, SoCal.

      • Nixon was a flawed human being. I felt sorry for him – the campaign against Kennedy made him feel essentially flawed as the press attacks were utterly vicious. They went far beyond anything seen since the mid-19th century.

        His foreign policy was coherent and congruent. His personal sense of diminishment ruined him. And the petty thievery of his pals who thought they were doing him a favor just fed into his paranoia about Democrat operations. A paranoia that turned out to be based on reality.

        The worst consequence of the Nixon years was the insane scramble for a generation to be the next Woodward and Bernstein. You couldn’t have a small story – it had to be HUGE and scandalous.

        Notice how the rules change when it’s a Democrat – Bill got away w/ immensely tawdry and compulsive behavior. The MSM kept screaming the impeachment was about sex but it wasn’t. The articles of impeachment covered his lying under oath. After he left office, his law license was suspended for five years and he was barred for life from appearing in front of the Supreme Court.

        Nixon wasn’t smooth or handsome. He was very smart but not able to be glib. Above all, he was a Republican.

        • ultimately, he was a lackey and stooge for the military/industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about. Southern California is the creation of his policies and now an under-used semi ghost town that we all must live with.

          We have Otis Chandler to thank for the Fourth Estate being what it is after he took up Menken’s mantle.

          Nixon however, knew the limits and his limits very well and successfully went toe-to-toe with Kosygin. I have no such delusions about O’Bama and that is what frightens me. He has 20 months left in his playpen and God only knows what we (America) will be when he is finished with us other than finished.

          • Lackey? Stooge? Seriously? Who? Could you give me some sourced research on these claims? Those two particular words are simply filler and tell us nothing beyond the fact you don’t respect someone’s work.

            Yes, Mencken did hate the middle class.

    • The American Traitors picked their Manchurian Candidate well, didn’t they? BTW, great first paragraph, nearly fell out of my chair laughing.

  8. Much of what Obama does is via two manipulative people who have access to Obama 24/7 – Jarrett and Soros.

    People say Obama is smart, I would say he is cunning, sly and deceitful with so much hate for those opposed to his/their agenda, that it at times clouds his responses. For example; the recent Israeli election results.

    Obama is a policy free zone who utters what is put in front of him by his puppet masters without comprehending what he is saying – this has been proven time and time again when his teleprompter has failed.

    One can associate immaturity with naivety, but naïve he ain’t. I would call him calculating and a pathological liar who could not care less for those his lies affect the most – the American people.

    • Well, he fits the DSM diagnosis for malign narcissism. Every age has its collective neurosis and ours tends to be narcissism. But most of us aren’t malign. That pathology is consumed with fantasies of revenge.

      He was a boy whose boundaries were violated many times. The fundamental things a child needs he didn’t get. Then momma sent him away at the age of ten so he could be mentored by (perhaps) his real father. See this 2012 essay on Franklin Marshall Davis:


      At ten, a boy still needs his momma. Besides, he’d already taken his step-father’s name. That betrayal might have been less painful had she waited a few more years.

      • Psychopathy fits Obama better than Malignant Narcissist. See the work of Robert Hare. Unfortunately, the psychiatric community has seen fit not to include Psychopathy in the DSM nosology.

        Also, I am sure that the American public would much rather have elected (twice) a Malignant Narcissist than a Psychopath. There is much less of a criminal aspect to Malignant Narcissist. That being said, Psychopath is the more reasonable diagnosis given his behavior, attitudes and (lack of ) emotional empathy.

      • If Ed Miliband becomes the British Prime Minister in May this will be bad news.
        His father Ralph has greatly influenced his politics.

        No doubt he will work closely with with Obama in pushing their Marxist agenda, 18 months will be long enough to do serious long lasting damage up until The US presidential election in November 2016.


        • Don’t panic, Bill. I’m not the only traditionally left-wing voter who can’t imagine putting Ed in power, especially as he’d be dependent on the ScotNats.

  9. Jens Stoltenberg is perhaps even more useless than Barack Obama, if that is even possible. It’s also worth pointing out that the two morons hold similar political views, so I don’t think Obama’s refusal to meet with him are of a personal nature, it has probably something to do with NATO itself.

    Stoltenberg was a disaster for Norway during his time as prime minister, and he made sure that the country got filled up with tens of thousands of potential ISIS warriors during his stint in office.

    I’ve added a link to an article that contains some lesser known information about this [redacted]->unfortunate person, so non-Norwegian speakers can get a better insight into the mindset of this premium clown.


  10. You don’t understand. We don’t LISTEN to NATO, we TELL NATO. NATO is our pawn, our toy. We tell them to boycott Russia and they do. Europe does not have armies, navies and airforces. Europe has border guards and coast guards and feminized, homosexualized wussies. Now we may have to pretend on occasion that they have real armies to let them save face, but nothing could be further from the truth.

    • No argument from me. But our presidents have always kept up appearances, meeting with the Secretary General when he comes to town. In this case, a meeting was requested several weeks ago, with a notification of the days the S.G. would be in Washington. Which were days BHO was also here.

      There is no need to be deliberately rude. This president goes out of his way to do so but will meet with tinpot dictators. It’s creepily arrogant. Diva behavior.

      • His rudeness isn’t a issue with me. It’s his horrendous policy decisions that are scaring me.

        Now KSA isn’t ruling out building nuclear weapons.


        His efforts at destabilizing Putin and slowly ratcheting up the militarization of Ukraine is another piece of monumental stupidity. There seems to be a elite consensus that Putin has to go no matter what.

        And what he did to the ME has ruined the region. Thanks to him Libya is now non-existent, Syria is barely hanging on, Turkey is reverting back to it’s Ottoman roots, Egypt is now on our bad guy list, Iraq is a Persian satrap.

  11. Obama, in his haste to damage Israel as much as possible, may have done it a favor. Perhaps, knowing the strength of the weapons Israel might use on them, Iran and the rest might decide that national suicide is not quite what they had in mind.

    It would be an incredible obscenity, far worse than the Holocaust, to lose Israel to an Iranian nuclear weapon, but if it obliterated all of the muslims in the Middle East along with Mecca and Medina, it would be a fitting result, of benefit to the rest of humanity.

  12. I have wondered what happens if Obama decides not to leave. But most of all, I worry about this country. People should be shouting and they are not doing that. They are afraid, perhaps?

    And in Europe, I think they are pretty dead already. My cousin in Hungary is okay because Hungary has closed borders (and are criticized for it, but that is what a leader does) — had Britan and France closed their borders, also Germany, they would not have all these amazing people living amongst them.

    I think in some places in America we have the same problem. Fortunateily, I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so Muslims are not necessarily attracted to it.

    Thank God for his few blessings.

    Dymphna, congrats on a great article!

    • If the media had not become compromised and corrupted by ideological/criminal forces as has the educational system, then Obama could never have been.

      And yes, many are afraid, many could care less, many are still clueless but there are also many who are preparing to fight back.

  13. It could be that Obama believes that the only way to force Israel to compromise with the Palestinians is if they face nuclear armed neighbours. (note the correct spelling)That might explain the feeble and apparently inept negotiations happening with Iran over relaxing sanctions.
