JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: OBAMA STOPS BRIEFLY IN OTTAWA TO SAY A FEW WORDS TO A THINK-TANK AND PICK-UP A $250,000 FEE – CANADA’S PRESS FAWNS OVER HIM AND HE OFFERS SOME OF HIS USUAL ARROGANT HOT AIR – NOTES ON OBAMA’S ACTUAL RECORD OF ACHIEVEMENT FOR THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW IT   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE ON CBC NEWS

 

“Barack Obama urges Canadians to hope

“Former U.S. president speaks to large crowd as part of think-tank event in Ottawa”

 

“I believe the long-term trajectory of humanity is in a positive direction,” he said. “But you get dark ages before the Renaissance.”

 

Few would exceed my dislike for Trump. He’s insufferable, but still I do not understand how people see any light in Obama past his smile. Perhaps they just don’t read.

Obama’s arrogance at times was as enormous as Trump’s, just expressed in classier language. That philosophical quote at the top is really an example of it. He’s free to speak about things with which he disagrees, but he doesn’t. Ever. Just a dry, pompous sentence about humanity.

Well, he was busy bombing “humanity” somewhere for every single day of his eight years.

He was responsible for the chaos made out of Libya, a country whose leader, like him or not, kept his country at peace and was generous with the needs of his people.

Obama was also responsible for the start of the horror in Syria, which still continues, having killed more than half a million.

He created millions of desperate refugees in Europe from his bombing in the Middle East.

He was responsible for the ominous “pivot” towards China after his march of destruction through the Middle East.

He started the American industrial-scale extrajudicial killing system using drones, something I would never have dreamed of seeing in the United States years ago. Taken right from the old Argentine military junta’s methods.

It was under Obama’s watch that the NSA and its massive, intrusive domestic spying got really rolling.

I read a revelation today that NSA supplied, a while back, a complete copy of its records on Americans to Israel for use in its massive assassination program.

The NSA, Obama’s NSA, supplied a complete copy of all the information they collected on Americans rather than be caught picking names. Some enlightened behavior.

Of course, there was the time Germany’s Mrs. Merkel discovered that her personal cell phone was being tapped by the NSA too. She was quite distraught. Obama tried consoling her, but her cell phone remained tapped.

(And just listen to the way the United States goes on about Huawei today, a company with no record of inappropriate behavior.)

Obama was almost a fanatic about secrecy and leaks and was always ready to punish leakers. He oversaw Chelsea Manning spending seven years in prison.

He did absolutely nothing for his own people, the poor blacks to whom he appealed in his campaign with “Yes, we can!” delivered in the rhythm of a black preacher.

He was involved in some pretty shady stuff we do not completely understand during the election with spying and other matters.

Please, there are no liberals in American, except some folks who gather in a few quaint shops in Vermont and Oregon and some professors no one listens to.

And there is no light in America, certainly not any coming from Obama’s insincere smile.

His brief visit to Ottawa really means only another $250,000 fee for him from a think-tank, serving as their star attraction, and absolutely nothing else.

And if you think American think-tanks promote anything in the least genuinely progressive, I’d like to talk to you about the purchase of a bridge,
