Everybody should be familiar with the Russian concept of a Potemkin Village. As the story goes, Grigory Potemkin, a favorite lover of the Russian Empress Catherine The Great, fabricated card-board villages to impress the Empress as she traveled to the Crimea along the Dnieper River. He wanted her to think he was doing a great job in administering the territory. Since then, the concept of Potemkin Villages is used to describe phenomenal hoaxes.
Right now, our President is posing for pictures at the death scene of at least eighty poor souls at Bataclan, a Paris theater where the worst of the terrorist attacks occurred. People lay on the floor for up to fifteen minutes as the terrorists blazed away. Not only is President Obama posing for pictures at these sites, he says nothing about the danger and sacrifice ordinary citizens face everyday. The danger is being minimized by our President.
President Obama doesn’t see Iran as a threat. Instead, his recent agreement gives Iran the certainty of a removal of economic sanctions with the twin-certainties of a huge influx of cash and a date-certain for the creation of the Islam Bomb. Now, Iran has it all and President Obama has ignored that threat. We will pay, someday.
President Obama ignores the global threat Islamic terrorism. It is inconceivable that anyone can dismiss this world-wide threat. Is this another ploy to buy some ethnic minority votes? If so it says a lot about the character of our President as he lives in a make-believe world, ignoring the real problems.
President Obama is now pretending that climate change is a threat. There is no science or economics that support that idea. There are just a few debunked and poorly structured studies that try to show that ninety-seven percent of scientists agree on climate change.
We have a Potemkin President. Not only are his causes and policies a hoax, but they are a danger to the American people, and by extension, to the world at large.
Any bets on Vladimir Putin’s next move that flummoxes our President? Don’t worry, Obama won’t even know what hit him.
