No Debate: The Radical, Corrupt Incompetence of Obama and his Democrats

A litany of President Obama’s failures.

Tonight’s third Presidential debate is focused on foreign policy.  What incumbent Barack Obama and his Democrats have demonstrated is that regardless of where they operate – on policies foreign or domestic – they are too often radical, corrupt and incompetent.

 

The best international example of this is the disaster in Benghazi, Libya.  President Obama’s incompetent-or-radical support of the obviously Islamist-led “Arab Spring.”  His incompetence in ignoring the incessant, increasingly desperate requests for additional security from now-late Ambassador Chris Stevens and others on the ground.  And the utter corruption of the Administration and their Congressional Democrat cohorts to weave any tale and go to any length to cover up and obfuscate the truth.

 

Domestically, President Obama and his Democrats have not – for three plus years and counting – passed a federal budget.  So the allegedly one-time, radical 2009 $1 trillion “Stimulus” has become – via Continuing Resolutions – an every Obama-year extravagance.  Which is more, passive corruption.  

 

The Democrat Senate has passed so little so as to avoid going on the record on so much.  Because when they do write things down, they demonstrate just how remotely removed they are from Reality and the thoughts of the vast majority of Americans.

 

Recall the August Democrat National Convention.  At which they wrote down an updated version of their Party Platform.  

 

For Democrats, there is no God in 2012 — at least as far as the party’s platform is concerned.

 

Nor is there a Jerusalem.

 

Democrats removed those two words, and the passages surrounding them, from the 2012 party platform as it was released this week.

 

Gone are three sentences identifying Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, now and forever. There is no mention of Jerusalem in the 2012 document…

 

Also gone is this reference to Hamas:

 

The United States and its Quartet partners should continue to isolate Hamas until it renounces terrorism, recognizes Israel’s right to exist, and abides by past agreements.

 

You can see why Democrats want to avoid at all costs putting pen to paper.  

 

Under tremendous post-publication pressure, the Party Elders retroactively ramrodded God and Jerusalem back in – to much consternation and booing from the Democrat rank and file.  (Though according to the 2012 Democrats Hamas is laughingly now a terrorism-free organization.)

 

These were not the only troubling portions of the updated Platform.  

 

Because we have no Democrat budget upon which to base our analysis, their Platform economic emphases is just about all with which we have to work.  And here, too, they are most troubling.

 

Take their Technology Plank (please).  They throw the word “freedom” around a good bit – but as The Princess Bride’s Inigo Montoya observed:

 

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

 

Here it is en toto:

 

The Obama administration has led the world to recognize and defend Internet freedom – the freedom of expression, assembly, and association online for people everywhere – through coalitions of countries and by empowering individuals with innovative technologies. 

 

The administration has built partnerships to support an Internet that is secure and reliable and that is respectful of U.S. intellectual property, free flow of information, and privacy. 

 

To preserve the Internet as a platform for commerce, debate, learning, and innovation in the 21st century, we successfully negotiated international Internet policymaking principles, support the current multi-stakeholder approach to Internet governance, and oppose the extension of intergovernmental controls over the Internet. 

 

As with the Democrats’ non-existent budgets, what they don’t write is at least as important as what they do.  There is absolutely no mention of the radical Network Neutrality.  

 

Which fundamentally undermines their alleged commitment to defend “freedom of expression, assembly, and association online for people everywhere.”  Which the Obama Administration – with the active backing of his Democrats – illegally jammed into existence in December 2010.

 

Meanwhile:

 

US Ambassador: Internet Fee Proposal Gaining Momentum

 

U.S. Ambassador Terry Kramer warned on Friday that a proposal to give a United Nations agency more control over the Internet is gaining momentum in other countries….

 

(A) proposal by the European Telecommunications Network Operators’ Association could force websites like Google, Facebook and Netflix to pay fees to network operators around the world.

 

Which sort of undermines this portion of the Democrat Platform:

 

The Obama administration has led the world to recognize and defend Internet freedom…through coalitions of countries….

 

To preserve the Internet as a platform for commerce, debate, learning, and innovation in the 21st century, we successfully negotiated international Internet policymaking principles, support the current multi-stakeholder approach to Internet governance, and oppose the extension of intergovernmental controls over the Internet.

 

Obviously those “coalitions of countries” aren’t quite coalescing the way President Obama and his Democrats claim.  

 

As with almost all things Democrat these days, this Platform Plank is airy, breezy and almost completely devoid of substance.  

 

Contrast this mess with the Republicans’ Tech Platform language.  Which in three short paragraphs specifically calls for (amongst other things): 

 

    • An abolition of Net Neutrality.
    • A rewrite of the 1996 Telecommunications Act.
    • A dramatically reduced regulatory role (or elimination thereof?) for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).  And…
    • An inventory of government spectrum holdings to facilitate the delivery of more to the private sector for commercial use.  (Spectrum is the airwaves we use for all things wireless – the feds by some estimates hold 60+% of this finite resource.)

 

The Democrats’ lack of any of this sort of specificity is the height of incompetence.  Or corrupt neglect.  In order to again hide their ever more radical intentions.

 

It is time to remove them from positions that allow them to impose their unexpressed will.
