Unpresidented

 

Unprecedented is the spat between the US President and the Philippine President regarding the latter’s war on drugs.

Obama resents the words uttered by Duterte calling the Human Rights Commission with words coming close to the effing words.

Obama calls these words of Duterte as spoken from habit when in fact these words are what we may call as favorite expressions which are identical to the effing words that are favoritely and publicly expressed by the Americans.

A personal confrontation such as this between the two Presidents clearly provides what the term “Ugly American” implies. It comes to the fore the difference between Asian naivete and American arrogance.

The Americans built this country of the Philippines around the tenets of American democracy, and ever since the Liberation from the Japanese occupation, this country has been the showcase of American democracy. Schools were started then, and even the American Constitution and National Anthem was taught. Indeed the people of the Philippines learned and even surpassed the Americans in national fervor, politics, and even in governmental graft and corruption. Before anything novel is done, the question to be asked is : how would the Americans do it?

Except this time, this country has something to teach the Americans in how to deal  with drug traffickers.

But this unprecedented act of the American President is an eye-popper and a game strategy changer. The Human Rights Commission should have talked to Duterte first before they lambasted him for the killings of those related to drug trafficking in the Philippines. By then they should have realized that the orders to shoot the drug traffickers are done only when the police are fired upon first. Such hasty accusations are characteristic of the Human Rights Commission when it attempts to control heads of state. They should be reminded again that not all countries live the same way the Americans do.

Inside a shelled nut (whatever that means) what Obama did with his personal tirade against another President of another small non-nuclear country is unpardonable by foreign diplomatic practices. Very unlike some other regimes, the Philippines is not an oil-producing, non-exporting, non-trade dependent, non-belligerent country which would side with the Americans by choice against any other country that the US opposes. The Philippines earn its dollars by exporting people. These are law-abiding, American-loving, God-fearing people.

If the Philippine President would do what he promised to do to sanitize the country of drugs, then the rest of the world should mind their own business and just watch how it is done.

Ron Paul On Obama

Ron Paul on Obama’s foreign policy:

‘Disobey us and we will bomb you’

Former White House hopeful and longtime lawmaker Ron Paul says United State President Barack Obama’s recent major foreign policy speech was a “disappointment” to anyone holding out for change from the current administration.

Responding to the president’s recent address at the US Military Academy at West Point, New York, the former congressman for Texas wrote on his website this week that Obama has refused to acknowledge any precedents concerning the impact of American interventionism, and instead plans on continuing a policy that attempts to extend Washington’s reach over the rest of the world, notwithstanding neither hypocrisy nor consequences.

Paul, a staunch anti-interventionist, was reflecting Sunday about the president’s remarks from late last month in which Obama applauded the idea of American exceptionalism and insisted that, “because of American diplomacy and foreign assistance, as well as the sacrifices of our military — more people live under elected governments today than at any time in human history.”

“[W]hat makes us exceptional is not our ability to flout international norms and the rule of law; it is our willingness to affirm them through our actions,” Obama said at the military’s academy’s May 28 graduation ceremony.

Paul, however, said the Obama administration picks and chooses when and where to flout those norms and otherwise involve itself in foreign affairs.

“It’s funny he would mention elections. Last week the Syrians held their first multi-candidate presidential election in 50 years. Almost three-quarters of Syrian voters participated, giving President Assad 88 percent of the vote. After three years fighting a foreign-backed insurgency, voting conditions were not optimal. However, despite State Department claims to the contrary, it can no longer be stated that Assad enjoys no popularity in his country,” he wrote in an op-ed published Sunday on the website for the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. “But the US government completely rejected the vote in Syria, with Secretary of State John Kerry calling it ‘a great big zero,” because, as he put it, ‘you can’t have an election where millions of your people don’t even have an ability to vote.’”

Indeed, voters were only allowed to cast ballots during the recent Syrian election in locations controlled by Assad’s government. The election marked the first one in four decades to include the name of a candidate not in the Assad family, but the incumbent’s opponents were approved by his administration and consisted of two challengers largely unheard of until now.

Likewise, Paul added, the Obama administration condemned a recent referendum in Crimea as “illegal” yet endorsed the overthrow of Ukraine’s then-president, Viktor Yanukovich, only weeks earlier. “For Washington, it was ‘illegal’ for Crimea to vote to secede from Ukraine, but it was not illegal for a mob in the street to overthrow an elected government in Kiev,” he wrote.

“President Obama spoke at length about the US role in promoting democracy around the world, but why does it seem that the US government only recognizes elections as free and fair when the US-favored candidate wins?” asked Paul, who challenged Obama in both the 2004 and 2008 US presidential elections.

“There is much to disappoint in Obama’s big foreign policy speech. It represents a continuation of the policy of ‘do what we say and we will subsidize you, disobey us and we will bomb you.’ That approach is a failure, but the neocons who back it show no sign of falling out of favor,” added Paul.

The former congressman’s latest remarks come on the heels of other recent editorials that have challenged the Obama administration’s handling of foreign affairs. In an op-ed published in March, Paul said that White House-endorsed efforts launched as “democracy spreading” endeavors have instead simply support regime changes beneficial to the White House.

“It isn’t democracy to send in the NGOs to re-write laws and the constitution in places like Ukraine. It is none of our business,” he wrote.

“Why does the US care which flag will be hoisted on a small piece of land thousands of miles away?” he asked earlier amid the crisis in Crimea. “Where were these people when an election held in an Iraq occupied by US troops was called a ‘triumph of democracy’?” he asked.

Manila Visit

Obama’s visit to the Manila earned him the reopening of the US bases in the Philippines. They were closed because the American servicemen flounted the laws in the Philippines, ever managing to escape before they get accused before the courts of law. Much anger was left behind to the Filipinos, notwithstanding the many unwed mothers unaccounted for. They lived up to the name “Ugly American”

More Lies To Mislead The World

 

John Kerry, Secretary of State of the politically stable United States of America has spread another dumfounded, I mean unfounded, rumor that the referendum that Crimea will hold is illegal. This is followed by the illustrious President of the United States Barack Obama to declare internationally that this referendum is internationally illegal.

Referring to the post before this ,captioned “Article 138, Constitution of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea,” Section 2 says clearly that the Autonomous Republic can hold referendums LOCALLY. The Crimeans will hold a referendum only for Crimea and not for the whole of Ukraine.

But it is clear that they can hold a legitimate, legal referendum.

Perhaps those who profess to know more about Crimea and Ukraine should arm themselves more knowledgeably first before they open their big yaps.

Doing so publicizes internationally how ignorant thay are

of the situation.

The Jerusalem Speech

 

This is a very disarming speech, President Obama’s speech at Jerusalem.

His two-state, two-people speech will give him a very enthusiastic welcome when he goes to Palestine.

This region now is given high hopes for peace between Israel and Palestine.

My take on this speech? WOW!
