The forced Parliamentary impeachment of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych just cancelled out President Barack Obama’s puny pen and telephone.
Russian President Vladimir Putin was Yankovych’s pen and telephone, but with the entire world watching, the prime minister, who only three months ago made a deal in favor of the Russians over the European Union, has hightailed it for safer ground by abandoning the battle field.
“Parliament on Feb. 22 voted overwhelmingly to impeach embattled Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych. Lawmakers applauded as the votes came in—328 in all—to oust the president. Following the vote, parliamentarian(s) stood and sang the national anthem.” (Kyiv Post, Feb. 22, 2014)
How many victims of ongoing Obama tyranny in the U.S. are beginning to hear the strains of The Stars and Stripes?
In America, the voice of We the People has been ignored for more than five years while the current administration is doing everything possible to curtail ‘dissidents’ now under threat by the IRS, NSA, and an FCC that backed off on sending monitors into America’s news rooms—until they can come up with a more malleable way.
From his alleged hideout in Karkiv, Ukraine’s second largest city, this is what Yanukovych is now saying: “What we witness now resembles Nazi occupation. The Communist Party is under restriction as then. My car was shot at, but I am not afraid for my life. I am afraid of my country. I will stay in Ukraine and try to stop the criminals. (Russian President Vladimir) Putin told me that he talked to (U.S. President Barack) Obama and we will negotiate.”
Seems Yanukovych is happily unaware that Obama the Negotiator is an abject failure. He took the coward’s way out from the Green Revolution in Iran ignoring their countless pleas for help; took the side of the Muslim Brotherhood over 30 million protesters in Egypt; was vacationing at the start of the Kiev protests and was vacationing and playing golf when 82 protesters shed their blood with more than 1,100 injured.
In the now promised Communist comeback, all the Ukraine Communists can count on is Obama’s caught but covert promise from an open mike to President Dmitry Medvedev in March of 2012, when he said he would have “more flexibility” after the coming presidential election. The one Medvedev said he would relay to incoming President Vladimir Putin.
Flexibility in Obama’s cases stretches all the way to the Muslim Brotherhood. But when it comes to saving his own pampered skin, he’s been known for throwing anyone, including personal friends, under the bus.
No matter how dire the need or passionate the cause, one can really count on Obama.
By now pulses should be racing in U.S. Congress. In spite of massive media hype stating otherwise, Iran, Egypt and now Ukraine prove that the Arab Spring is one provable failure.
For the record, Obama is the de facto titular head of the Arab Spring that began on December 18, 2010.
Touted as heroic by a worldwide mainstream media, Arab Spring has been knocking out relatively stable governments and replacing them with Iran-friendly, Sharia-compliant regimes from the get-go.
“By December 2013, rulers have been forced from power in Tunisia, Egypt (twice), Libya and Yemen; civil uprisings have erupted in Bahraine and Syria; major protests have broken out in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco and Sudan; and minor protests have occurred in Mauritania, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Djibouti, Western Sahara, and the Palestinian territories.” (Wikipedia)
Arab Spring in America translates to the Fundamental Transformation of America, during which massive job losses compete with the loss of individual rights with no party coming forward to bring America back to what it was before Jan. 20, 2009.
The failure of Arab Spring should be thrown back to the one elected activist who started it all: Barack Hussein Obama.
Meanwhile, those working to enable Arab Spring, Obama style should recognize with a chill in their hearts, that Obama who works on the notion that Americans will do nothing to stop him, could be dead wrong.
Revolutions of the people in other countries are putting politicians called prime ministers and presidents on the run. If it can happen there, it can happen in America too.
