Obama, No Expert on Nuclear Issues or Sarah Palin

by Stacy Drake


Barack Obama unveiled his “new strategy” on nuclear policies this week. He also ended up signing away much of the successful strategies our country has had toward nuclear determent for the last seventy years. Not only did he tell a dangerous world that we will not fight back under these circumstances, he also delivered a serious blow to this nation’s Missile Defense Program. Arizona’s Senators, John McCain and Jon Kyl released a joint statement addressing their concerns about this administrations new policies in regards to missile defense. They stated:

“While we were initially advised that the only reference to missile defense was in the preamble to the treaty, we now find that there are other references to missile defense, some of which could limit U.S. actions. Further, the Russians have unilaterally declared that the article which allows either Russia or the U.S. to withdraw from the treaty is intended to allow Russian withdrawal if it believes new U.S. missile defense capabilities pose a threat to its strategic nuclear forces. This has the potential to constrain improvements to U.S. missile defenses, if objected to by the Russians.”

“This has the potential to constrain improvements to U.S. missile defenses, if objected to by the Russians!”

That’s our president! Always one to bend over for the leaders of other nations and show his citizens his other side. Harsh? I’m sorry but the new stance this man, who clearly doesn’t think very highly of this country, is forcing it to take within this incredibly dangerous world, makes me very angry. He is making us vulnerable to attack, only he is too ignorant to realize it.

During an interview on Wednesday with Sean Hannity, Governor Palin had some harsh but very accurate words of her own for the president’s new policies. She said:

“It’s unbelievable, Unbelievable. No administration in America’s history would, I think, ever have considered such a step that we just found out President Obama is supporting today. You know, that’s kind of like getting out there on the playground — a bunch of kids ready to fight, and one of the kids saying, ‘Go ahead, punch me in the face, and I’m not going to retaliate. Go ahead and do what you want with me.’ No, it’s unacceptable. “

Obama responded to her criticisms on Thursday in an interview with George Stephanopoulos. He manged to show not only his deep rooted ignorance on national defense, but also managed to show the country how little he really knows about Governor Palin. He said “Because last I checked, Sarah Palin’s not much of an expert on nuclear issues.” Oh really?

I’ll get to Obama’s lack of credentials on “nuclear issues” in a second, first I’d like to address what he said about Governor Palin. Is Barack Obama aware that Sarah Palin was the governor of the state of Alaska? Clearly he knows this… Does he know that the Governor of Alaska has one of the highest security clearances in the country and is routinely briefed on matters of the nation’s security in a ways most governor’s are not privy to?

Alaska is home to the 49th Missile Defense Battalion at Fort Greely which has 26 missile interceptors, maintained by members of the Alaskan National Guard. All of whom served directly under Governor Sarah Palin’s command. She was in charge of that facility, therefore I’m pretty sure she knows a thing or two about “nuclear issues.”

There is another aspect of our nuclear policies in relation to our national defense that I am sure Governor Palin IS an expert in. That would be her loyalty to this country and her belief in protecting it’s people, while at the same time understanding the world we live in. She understands facing your enemies is better done from a position of strength and not one of kowtowing to all needs and desires of those who wish you ill. You don’t have to convince me that Sarah Palin loves this country and would do everything in her power to protect it. Including scaring the daylights out of other nation’s by making it clear that we are not a country to toy with.

Let me be frank for a moment… I developed my own national defense philosophy after many years of studying the world’s geopolitical situation, while simultaneously living in bad neighborhoods. I view the world as one big bad neighborhood. If you look at all the characters with power on this planet, you know I’m right. Now, you can be a good player in a bad neighborhood but you cannot be ignorant. You cannot deal with the others from a position of weakness and respect is vital for your own survival. This is dealing with the world as it is, not as we wished it were.

Then there is A.B. Culvahouse, former counsel to President Reagan, told an audience of Republicans that for McCain, selecting a vice president came down to three questions:

“Why do you want to be vice president? Are you prepared to use nuclear weapons? And the CIA has identified Osama bin Laden, but if you take the shot there will be multiple civilian casualties. Do you take the shot?

“She knocked those questions out of the park,” he said at an event held at the National Press Club by the Republican National Lawyers Association. “We came away impressed.”

It seems the seasoned and knowledgeable Culvahouse thought Governor Palin had the right temperament and enough ‘expertise’ to make important nuclear related judgments.

As far as Barack Obama’s own lack of expertise on nuclear matters, I think his record is clear. He is certainly no military expert and he has never been in charge of any nuclear or missile defense operations before his current job. Instead, he deals with it the same way deals with everything else… Through left-wing ideology. He views these important issues through those thick ideological lenses that tell him that everything America has always been, is “fundamentally” wrong therefore we need to “change” it.

Glenn Beck did a show earlier this week answering Obama’s charge that his detractors cannot prove he is a socialist. Saying that he was a “strong believer in the free-market system.” Glenn Beck rightly mocked him wondering where Obama could have developed that “strong” belief considering his family and mentors had all been from far left political worlds. After he moved away from his family, he still choose to surround himself with far left radicals and even stated in his book that he sought out “Marxist professors” in college. That’s not a very fertile environment for forming strong free-market principles, is it?

Well, the same must go for his philosophical views concerning national defense. If he was a true believer in securing this nation, you’ve got to wonder how he developed that view. I’m sure those Marxist professors only want what’s best to keep America a strong, free nation, right? How about Jeremiah, ‘Chickens coming home to roost’ Wright? All that time he spent with William Ayers and all the other radicals he surrounded himself with throughout his life. All of them wanted to see the destruction of the American system in some form or fashion. Do you really think he somehow avoided being like them and has now decided to protect America and Americans at all costs? Of course not, that’s why he signed a treaty that Russia dictates.

I’ll leave you with a little clip that shows how much Obama really knows about “nuclear issues.”

    as usual, totally biased misinformation ! do the republicans really believe these lies ?

    • Gary P

      Point out the lies, be specific.

      You don’t believe Sarah Palin was Governor of Alaska? We can prove that.

      You don’t believe Sarah Palin was Commander-In-Chief of the only National Guard in the nation that is permanently deployed? We can prove that. Even have film of her in Kuwait and Kosovo, and as a bonus, the Kuwait film shows her taking part in weapons training!

      You don’t believe Sarah Palin was Commander-In-Chief of the Alaska Defense Force? We can prove that. We can also prove the ADF was the only think that kept the Japanese at bay in WWII, as they invaded Alaska. We can also prove Barack Obama cut off benefits to the last surviving WWII vets from that conflict, and Sarah Palin went after him and his regime, eventually restoring pensions Obama sought to take away from these heroes, most of them Native Americans.

      You don’t believe that Alaska is where our missile shield are located, and that Palin, as does every Alaska Governor, received high level classified national security briefings? That’s on record too.

      Maybe you don’t believe A.B. Culvahouse who is a top level D.C. attorney, and former senior adviser to Ronald Reagan when he said Sarah was chosen for her foreign policy stances, including the use of nuclear weapons. I can tell you, a man of Culvahouse’s stature carries a lot more weight than a failed “community organizer” street thug from Chicago.

      Again though, be specific, tell us where you think we went wrong. The typical democrat party tripe doesn’t fly here.

    Whooops! Who left the back door open so that an actual leftie troll could crawl in?!? Robin Yates sounds like one of the discredited old hacks that comprise the “Alaska Mafia,” whose “score” to date is a big fac ZERO!! And way to go, Gary, for bringing up one example after another why Palin was probably THE most well-versed of ALL 50 governors on nuclear defense issues! Way to go, too, Stacy, for that definitive overview of Palin’s excellent and relevant credentials vis-a-vis nuclear defense systems and their totally viable importance to this nation’s defense. Yates – and her idol? Obummer – don’t have a clue – except that Oh No probably knows just enough that he doesn’t want that sort of effective defense system to protect the nation he has quietly foresworn to destroy…

    • Gary P

      We try and present the facts on this sort of thing. Alaska is a very unique state in many ways and Sarah Palin is a unique leader, for sure! She’s had more experience with this, and other things, than most know.
