Best of 2015: Obama's foreign policy legacy and the war on terror

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Other than Cuba and Iran, I can't think of a single country, friend or foe, that is closer to America now than when Obama took over.

He’s been obsequious to every tyrant from Venezuela to Saudi Arabia, and pushed friends like Israel away.

We had to see that coming, though. Our first clue about what Obama had in mind came during his first major foreign policy speech in Cairo, Egypt.

According to sharia law, Obama was born a Muslim because his father was a Muslim. Obama says he later became a Christian, which some people doubt. But regardless, that day in Cairo he wanted every Muslim to know he was one of them.

Then Obama told NATO allies that he was sick of this whole “leader of the free world” thing.

Foreign policy bored Obama; or it frustrated him. Every success in his life had been through affirmative action, or through speeches that gave Americans a tingle in their leg. But none of that seemed to work in foreign affairs.

His love letter in Cairo didn’t work. His withdrawal of American troops didn’t work.

There's still a year to go with Obama as president. I hope a Republican will win. And I think one will win, too.

To me, the only question left is: in Obama’s last year, will he ignore foreign affairs, and just go golfing?

Or will he have one, last push — against Israel maybe? A Palestinian state? Something to win another Nobel Prize for?

My guest tonight is Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum. We examine Obama's foreign policy legacy and other concerning world events, like showdown between Turkey and Russia.

Obama is not anti-Israel. He just doesn’t bow down so readily to the leaders of some puny foreign state which has no business trying to pull the levers of power in the most powerful nation on the planet.
Israel receives billions annually in military support, and gets to use the USA veto at the UNSC whenever it wants. But Obama has the tenacity to point out that there’s a reason that the Palestinians are pissed off, and some people think this makes him anti-Israel.
Modern anti-semitism: a failure to bow deeply to Netanyahu.

Great work Ezra.

Excellent show Ezra… You are one of the few journalists with a realistic analysis on Obama’s motives and trail of failures. Your talented work is being recognized internationally. All the best in 2016 and beyond.
ps Please ask Daniel Pipes to upgrade his Skype sound/mike.

Oblowzo is more interested in waging a war on America.

I bought and read the book “Obama’s Ineptopia: An Inconvenient Truth” by Arturo Raymond. Just when I believed he was the worst president in history, it is getting even worse. There are at least a dozen major books in this vein, all truthful.

Sam, boom-boom’s motivation is aspiration to sec-gen of U.N.

It is frightening that Obama is so inept when it comes to dealing with foreign policy matters. What is even more frightening, is the popularity of Hillary with American voters. She is every bit as weak or weaker on terror. How she is not in prison is another matter. The sheer number of times she has been caught in scandals since her husband was the President, and her own tenure in politics as well is staggering . She is apparently made of teflon. Could you just imagine the tag team of idiocy with her and Turd-o in power at the same time?

So if Obama did all these bad things in his last seven years as president, then just what was his motivation?

At least with Justin Trudeau, I can see that he is motivated by idiotic modern leftist politics giving him the vote.

- I’m glad you’re ‘counting words’ and all the rest you do for us…those of us who know better… - Daniel Pipes; 50,000 Islamic State troops, and 2 billion Islamic supporters – overt and covert… Ezra, maybe you should sit down with Mr. Pipes for an ‘all day’ and record the conservations… - FUBARack Obama and his foreign policy fiascos – acknowledged – AND his domestic policy fiascos, all planned, all being carried out, all working as planned…same as Trudeau, Wynne and Notley – to name a few…

Watch out for Obama, just before the US elections in 2016, there will be a massive False Flag Event, bigger than 9/11. Obama will then call off the elections and continue on his path, the destruction of the USA.
Many in the US of A have stated the same thing – there will be a huge uprising if this happens – many in the US military will refuse to support hussein if he tries this – which is why he attempted a purge in the past few years one question being asked was – “Will you fire upon American citizens?”

Those who answered “No” were removed from their positions.

Many generals were fired.

I met one personally and briefly in A’stan before this happened – he is now a teacher in a university.

All above can be verified by simple Google searches.

As for Najashi Trudio, he is one of two things, a Traitor to Canada or a Muslim. Keep it up Justin, when you fall it will be a long way.

Hussein obama – an islamic – which means evil – in my opinion one of the most hated presidents of the US of A – the only reason he was not assassinated is he is black and the people who would want him dead were afraid he would become sainted.

Husein obama will continue to golf while attempting to destroy Israel – he has become their worst nightmare in many ways.

Watch the Canadian islamic pm – another evil incarnate leader begin to do the same.

Quite frankly watching the video of hussein obama on Ezra’s show I began to see there are many similarities in the mannerisms and the voice inflections and body language of the Canadian islamic pm and the US islamic president.

If that does not scare you, then you are very foolish.

Watch what happens to Canada over the next few years and be afraid – very afraid.

Terry Black said: “This character {Justin Trudeau} is beyond useless he is a walking expense and detriment to Canada!”

I, and many others agree with this. What can be done??? Writing here is better than nothing, but not much better. I wish there was a forum on this site where people could “talk” and maybe form a plan. We need to do more than write comments!!

Thanks for doing what you do Ezra.
We all have a responsibilty to keep sharing and telling the truth. While the media party is too scared to. (In fact most times it isn’t what the likes of CBC reports, it is what they refuse to report.)
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.

I thought Ezra was only going to take one week off.

Your the gutsiest man I know. Being born a Jew made you realise, that bulls eye on your back was a birth mark they were coming for you or matter what
I like what you do GO Ezra GO keep up the good work

Good report as to what is going on – certainly doesn’t make me feel good as a Canadian hearing about Obama’s foreign policy and Ezra stating Canada certainly isn’t stepping up to do anything! – of course not with useless sunny boy Justy in the PMs’ position! This character is beyond useless he is a walking expense and detriment to Canada!
