What kind of fruit tree is Obama?

posted at 11:29 am on February 12, 2011 by

The Bible says that you will know a tree by the kind of fruit it bears, meaning that you will know what someone believes by what they do. Considering the ‘revolution’ in Egypt, I would like to quickly examine three examples of foreign policy maneuvers that Obama has taken, including Egypt.

First, let’s look all the way back at June/July of 2009. President Zelaya was working with Castro to subvert the Honduran Constitution to turn Honduras into a dictatorship. The government of Honduras acted quickly and had the military remove Zelaya from the country. This measure had the support of almost the entire Honduran Congress (1 person voted against it), Attorney General, and the Honduran Supreme Court. They acted constitutionally to remove Zelaya from power.

So what did Obama do? He dubbed it an illegal military coup and said they must stand up for the rule of law and reinstate Zelaya back to power. However, the interim President of Honduras who was serving out Zelaya’s term, Robert Micheletti, said they acted constitutionally and would not return Zelaya to power. In return Obama helped to isolate honduras by voting with the other members of the OAS to suspend Honduras’ membership and moved to cut off aid to Honduras despite them being such a poor country.

Next up, Iran. Remember the 2009 Green Revolution? Most of you are more familiar with this so I’ll make it short. Iran basically cheated their people out of free and fair elections by ignoring the ballots and declaring Ahmadinejad the victor. It was only an hour or so after the people voted with paper ballots that the Iranian government declared him the winner, and at that point the people knew they’d been had. They poured into the streets of Tehran in protest as the world watched on. But instead of condemning the falsified elections and calling for free elections, Obama said that the US would continue to work with the Iranian government and added that it wasn’t our place ‘meddle’ in Iran’s affairs. In fact it took Obama 10 days to make a strong public statement against Iran, but only to condemn the widespread brutality as Iran was suppressing it’s people. I don’t think he ever called for new elections once. Iran successfully suppressed  their people and Ahmadinejad remains in control. Obama was pretty much silent through this entire revolution.

And now that a revolution is happening in Egypt, our ally, Obama has taken center stage and has been publicly vocal against Mubarak calling for him to step down. In fact, I don’t believe he ever voiced support for Mubarak at all, instead saying that the people have spoken and Mubarak must go. Obama has even called for elections though we know elections in the middle east never yield democracies. On top of that, Obama has advocated that a terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, should play a part in the new government of Egypt. This has major implications for Israel as the Muslim Brotherhood truly hates Israel and wants to wipe them off the map. And now that Mubarak has stepped down today, Egypt will likely continue toward elections and could be well on it’s way to a theocracy just as Gaza turned into a theocracy in 2006 and Iran in 1979.

These are just three examples of Obama’s Foreign policy moves and they all have one thing in common. In every case Obama stood on the opposing side of US interests whether it was to side with a dictator wanna-be, a fascist Islamic theocracy, or against an ally and in favor of another Islamic terrorist organization as part of his replacement. And discounting Honduras, Iran and Egypt have the anti-Israeli component in common.

I’m telling you, we have the enemy to the US and Israel in the White House and it’s not hard to see when you look at the big picture. I haven’t even mentioned the way he treated Netanyahu the first time he visited the White House. And given more thought I’m sure there would be more examples. It’s apparent to all those who are willing to look at the facts.

Fig. The crunchy kind.

Under water grottos, caverns
Filled with apes
That eat figs.
Stepping on the figs
That the apes
Eat, they crunch.
The apes howl, bare
Their fangs, dance,
Tumble in the
Rushing water,
Musty, wet pelts
Glistening in the blue.

I’ve said this from the very beginning: Pay absolutely no attention whatsoever to anything Barak Obama SAYS. Only pay attention to what he DOES.

His speeches are nothing but incoherent gibberish. But his actions have always been as focused as a laser beam.

Wrong question. Should be “what kind of nut tree is Obama?”

He’s an Umbrella Acacia Tree, of course.

Any nut tree would classify Barry.

I do mission work in Honduras and so I immediately saw the discontinuity between his positions on these countries and his statements. Glad to see I’m not the only one. There is a strong Socialist movement in Honduras and it’s dangerous to advocate for political issues. The Socialists are busy drawing graffiti everywhere and smart Hondurans are moving money offshore. This Latin democracy was making good progress before Obama abandoned them, and it’s sad to see.

ACORN?

Barry’s the kind of fruit that looks fresh and pretty on the outside (from a distance), but when you open it up it’s rotted and crawling with maggots.

One thing we know. He hasn’t got a pear.

Poison Ivy berries, for sure

Arbutus unedo – the “Strawberry Tree” – the fruit looks like a tasty strawberry, and it is technically edible – but um, you’d be better off eating your shoes
