Another radical step for Obama, one giant step backward for mankind.
The observer cannot help survey current events with a mix of shock and awe and terror. The government continues to place an unfathomable debt on the already broken back of a middle-class nation, a debt so immense on its face that it is impossible to pay back.
And for what? Trillions and no one is sure, but the global warming junk science hoax is one of the big winners of government largesse, while the advancement of true science, NASA's space program, is being shuttered -- and NASA itself is being redirected to serve Muslim countries:
In his budget proposal, President Barack Obama is doing away with the $100 billion plan to return astronauts to the moon.
On its Web site, the White House Budget Office says the program to send astronauts to the moon is behind schedule, over budget and overall less important than other space investments.
A more important space investment is, of course, pandering to Muslim
NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden said Tuesday that President Barack Obama has asked him to “find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries” as the White House pushes the space agency to become a tool of international diplomacy.
“In addition to the nations that most of you usually hear about when you think about the International Space Station, we now have expanded our efforts to reach out to non-traditional partners,” said Bolden, speaking to a lecture hall of young engineering students.
Specifically, he talked about connecting with countries that do not have an established space program and helping them conduct science missions. He mentioned new opportunities with Indonesia, including an educational program that examines global climate change.
“We really like Indonesia because the State Department, the Department of Education [and] other agencies in the U.S. are reaching out to Indonesia as the largest Muslim nation in the world. We would love to establish partners there,” Bolden said.
American leadership, elected by the people but no longer for the people, has given us over to our enemies under the clever cover of "internationalism." While Obama seeks to nuclear disarm America, our enemies are building whole nuclear weapons programs. Even in bizarro world, does that make any sense? And even if we have nukes to spare, why take such a weakling posture in such a brutal world?
All this while we watch seventh-century savages adhering to a bloodthirsty, totalitarian ideology roll out nuclear weapon programs, while threatening to wipe countries off the map.
Further, we intend to spend trillions on foreign aid to third world nations led by cruel despots that are no better off despite the billions we have already sent. And nations that received nary a cent but embraced economic freedom (though not political freedom), like China, have taken giant leaps forward. Have we learned nothing? Are we incapable of advancing a different policy instead of trillions for more of the same policy? Are we not humane? Perhaps exporting the idea of political freedom would do more for oppressed peoples than paying off their dictators?
We ought to heal ourselves before vainly attempting to heal the world.
The left in America has stalled growth, innovation, productivity and the protection of individual rights at the expense of whatever political fraud they were selling. Is America irretrievably broken? Perhaps. Perhaps the whole damn thing has to come crashing down about our heads for a return to America.
