Obama and Iran: It is beyond time to question Obama’s patriotism

WASHINGTON, December 3, 2013 — It’s time to question President Obama’s patriotism.

Liberals get hysterical when anyone questions Obama’s patriotism, or the patriotism of any member of the Democratic Party — or as Ann Coulter calls it, “The Party of Treason.”

The left treats this question as out of bounds in civilized discourse, yet they routinely question the patriotism of conservatives who express the opinion that spending money to bring drag queens for a show on an Air Force base might be a waste of money.

Obama’s handling of Iran’s nuclear program should be enough to lead any honest observer to question his patriotism and his sanity. Allowing a genocidal regime to obtain nuclear weapons is the epitome of bad ideas. 

Obama cut a deal with Iran. What does Iran get out of it? They have one of their top nuclear scientists released from Western custody, and they get the right to keep some of their enriched uranium and to enrich more. 

America’s benefits from this deal will soon be on the sides of milk cartons; they’re missing.

Iran does not need a nuclear energy program. It has enough oil to keep itself going until sometime in the 23rd century.

The first stanza of the favored song of the Tehran Tabernacle Street Choir is, “Death to Israel.” While Israel is not America, if Iran goes to war with Israel, there are three things that can happen, and they are all bad.

The best case scenario for a war in the Middle East is that oil supplies from the Persian Gulf are cut off, global oil prices rocket, and we see $20 a gallon gasoline because Obama thinks it is both patriotic and prudent to make America dependent on an unstable source of fuel, while enriching people who hate us. 

A worse case scenario is that America gets sucked into a war in the Middle East.

And then there is the worst case scenario. Remember the Tehran Tabernacle Street Choir? The second verse of their favorite song is, “Death to America.” 

If the Mullahs in Iran follow throw with their vow to nuke Israel, that will only be the opening act. The encore will be mushroom clouds over Minneapolis. 

In 2010, Obama signed the latest version of the Strategic Arms Limitations Treaty. When he pressed the Senate to ratify this treaty, he promised that America would not have to cut any of our strategic missiles to comply with the treaty.

Now Obama is telling the Congress that in order to comply with that treaty, an Air Force ICBM squadron must be dismantled and its missile silos destroyed.

With sequestration, American bombers are being mothballed, an ICBM squadron is being eliminated because Barack Obama lied to the Senate to get a treaty ratified. America’s military is being hollowed out, while Russia and China modernize theirs at a breakneck pace. North Korea and Iran are following suit.

It is time real Americans start calling out Obama and his party. Their judgment, their sanity and above all, their patriotism are all in serious doubt.

Judson Phillips

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.

A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.

Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”

The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.

He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
