Christian Toto over at Human Events has done a review of my book. Here's an excerpt of the review for The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America:
The media did their best—and still do—to downplay Obama’s radical ties. But this book argues that in probing the President’s anti-Israel bent it doesn’t take much sleuthing to uncover names such as Wright, Bill Ayers, Khalid al-Mansour, Rashid Khalidi and many others of a similar bent. And what about Robert Malley, whom Obama named a key foreign policy advisor? Malley had met with representatives from Hamas and held entrenched anti-Israel views, facts that forced Obama to let him go—temporarily.
Obama’s stance toward Iran, a rogue regime tinkering with its own nuclear program, falls right in line with his inability to use American force—even soft power—in an effective manner. When many Iranian people rose up against the country’s crooked elections, Obama said next to nothing to support them. The mullahs laughed, slaughtered some of the protestors and refueled their nuclear ambitions.
“Iran was clearly emboldened by Barack Obama’s weakness—at the worst possible time for it to be emboldened,” they write. “Obama believed that simply by showing the Iranians some love, he could persuade them to drop their genocidal bellicosity and join the ranks of free nations.”
The President can’t even wage a war for which he long argued was essential to the country’s safety. The President famously dithered for months on a plan to boost U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan and, when he finally came to a decision, it included a withdrawal date, a measure sure to delight Taliban leaders.
Obama often leans on hard, cold fiction to support his international bent. He recast American history to let Islam take a greater part in it while the suppliant media remained silent. When the facts proved without a doubt that the Fort Hood shooter was motivated by radical Islam he couldn’t bring himself to admit that reality.
That Obama weakness matters. Just consider the spate of attempted terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in the late summer and early fall of 2009.
The President’s stance on freedom of speech remains equally shoddy. His followers flooded a Chicago radio station in the run-up to his election to help silence one of his critics, and Obama stood silent while his defenders trotted out the race card to smite any valid criticism of the President or his policies.
The administration’s brief assault on Fox News was simply another part of its strategy to strangle free speech—or any speech that clashes with its post-American worldview.
During the 2008 presidential election season, the Obama team hid a gaggle of his personal records to prevent people from realizing his true nature.
The Post-American Presidency spells out Obama’s radicalism in black and white for all to see—and fear.
