Phillips: Barack Obama's dream, America's nightmare

WASHINGTON, June 20, 2013 — Barack Obama has a dream. He has a dream for America.  

Martin Luther King had a dream for America. His dream for America would make America a better and greater nation.

Obama’s dream for America does not do that. His dream for America is anything but that. His dream for America might better be described as a nightmare for America.

There are two words that describe his dream for America. What are they?

Unilateral surrender.

Yesterday, in front of a meager crowd of 4,500, Obama spoke at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. His tiny, “invitation only” audience was overshadowed by a much larger Tea Party Patriots rally on the lawn of the United States Capitol.

As Obama spoke, he called for a reduction in the number of nuclear weapons. Not all nuclear weapons, just American nuclear weapons.  

Obama wants America to cut its nuclear arsenal on its own. He wants to cut it by one third. Since he has been in office, America has done nothing to test, maintain, or upgrade our nuclear deterrent. His goal has been to simply let it rot.

Russia is currently modernizing and expanding its nuclear arsenal. China is expanding and modernizing its nuclear arsenal. Two years ago, after Obama signed the START treaty, he sent out senior military officers, who were all looking to him for their next promotion, to announce that the number of nuclear weapons specified in the treaty was just what America needed.

Yet now, for no apparent reason, other than Obama’s overwhelming desire for unilateral disarmament, he suddenly announces we don’t need one third of those weapons.

Pakistan is building new nuclear weapons. Obama’s policy has supposedly been to keep North Korea from building new nuclear weapons and keep Iran from gaining them. Both policies are failing miserably.

Obama’s nuclear containment of North Korea and Iran are failing because either he does not want them to succeed or his administration is simply incompetent.

It does not matter which of those options is true. Obama cannot be trusted. It does not matter what the issue, Obama will surrender.

In Afghanistan, the Obama surrender has been going on for four-and-a-half years. Our troops have been handcuffed by insane Rules of Engagement that do nothing other than allow the enemy to fight on terms most favorable to him.

Now, Obama is surrendering in the peace process.

In the past, the United States had set out three preconditions for peace talks with the Taliban. The first was they must renounce violence. The second was they must renounce al-Qaeda, and the third was they must agree to abide by the Afghan Constitution.

Since the motto of Obama is surrender at the first possible opportunity, the United States has announced it will meet with the Taliban in Qatar, without the Taliban meeting any of the preconditions.

There is a name for this: “surrender.”

During World War II, we did not demand that Germany, Italy and Japan come to the peace table. We defeated them. During the First Gulf War, we did not demand Saddam Husain come to the peace table. We simply went as far as we were going to go. In the Second Gulf War, we did not demand that Saddam Husain come to the peace table. We simply went in and defeated him.

During the Iraqi insurrection, we did not negotiate in Fallujah; we went in and defeated the insurgents.

In Vietnam, we went to the peace table and what happened? America lost.  

Now Obama wants America at the peace table because for him surrender is the ultimate objective of his policies.

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.
