Bowing to the Japanese, Civilian Courts, and ACORN Investigations

How low will he go? Obama gives Japan's Emperor Akihito a wow bow

November 14, 2009 | 3:38 am

Democrat president Barack Obama bows to Japan's Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko 11-09

How low will the new American president go for the world's royalty? [First he bowed to the Saudi King. No other head of state felt compelled to do more than shake hands, by the way.....]

This photo will get Democrat President Obama a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese who still pay attention to the royal family living in its downtown castle. Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference for a superior. [Meanwhile, he gave Queen Elizabeth a clap on the back......he isn't even attempting to hide who he really is.....]

John Steele Gordon writes: "President Obama goes abroad apologizing for the supposed sins of a country that defended and extended freedom around the world at a staggering cost in lives and treasure and then grovels before the man whose country has yet to apologize for the Rape of Nanking.

"Could someone in the Chief of Protocol’s Office at the State Department please tell Barack Obama that heads of state do not bow to other heads of state? And for the head of state of the country founded on the idea that “all men are created equal,” that goes double.

"As my mother used to say, “Pardon me while I throw up.”

In the words of a friend of mine: "All I'm saying is that, [regarding his failure to salute or put his hand over his heart at appropriate times, or this bowing down] you'd think he'd be emotionally intelligent enough to know the value of either gesture to the Americans who decide his approval rating and, by the way, his chances for reelection. I guess it's just SO distasteful to him that he can't bring himself to even ACT like a Patriot."


The Worst Decision by a US President in History – by David Horowitz

Even one of the founders of the New Left in the 60's, David Horowitz, has declared that one decision by Barack Obama is the "Worst Decision Ever" by a US President.

He writes: The Obama administration has taken a giant step in its march to throw in the towel in the war against radical Islam. On FoxNews this morning, Peter King said of the decision to try the soldiers of al-Qaeda — who by their own account have no country but their cause — as civilians

“may be the worst decision by a U.S. president in history.”

It certainly is. It sends a signal to terrorists everywhere to attack civilians.

The administration is justifying its decisions on the grounds that because the 9/11 attackers targeted civilians they should be tried as civilians. This makes no sense unless you are a Democrat who believes that the “holy war” that Islamic jihadists have formally declared on us is no different from the acts of isolated individuals who have decided to break the law. This is the approach to the war on terror that John Kerry championed in 2004. Now that Americans have had the poor judgment — the suicidally poor judgment — to make a leftist their president, this is the strategy our nation is set to pursue.

The decision to try the jihadists in a civilian court is also a decision which will divulge America’s security secrets to the enemy since civilian courts afford defendants the right of discovery. It is also a propaganda gift to Islamic murderers who will turn the courtroom into a media circus to promote their hatred against the Great Satan — a hatred shared by their apologists at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the pro-Castro Center for Constitutional Rights who have pioneered the campaign against Guantanamo and whose influence in the Obama Administration is pervasive. (BTW, The newly appointed lawyer for the president is the husband of Obama’s recently departed Maoist communications director Anita Dunn.)

Dick Morris reports: As he flew to Asia on Saturday, President Obama told the media in Alaska that he opposes a congressional investigation into the Fort Hood massacre, saying that we must "resist the temptation to turn this tragic event into political theater." Yet, even as he was posturing against political theatrics, he had just decided that the prosecution of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed would proceed on the greatest of public stages -- New York City.


Army Chief of Staff, Gen. George Casey uttered the following twisted thought: “What happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy, but I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here.” [What has become a tragedy here, in my opinion, is that we are treating a terrorist act as a simple act of a confused, demented man. He was demented by the call of Jihad, and he and his ilk threaten the safety of all of us "infidels". Perhaps we should not bar Muslims from the privilege of joining our military, but we definitely should rid our services of those who, as Hasan did, actually have "soldier of Allah" on his business card.]

Besides the fact that giving the Gitmo terrorists a civilian trial in NYC will force us to divulge our secrets to the world, allow the terrorists to shout out in court to the cameras more Jihad directions, and tie up the streets of NYC and the courts of the USA, the proceedings, as described by Kevin McCullough, are "an unnecessary move on the part of the administration to try these particular four terrorists at all. They have all confessed, and even bragged, on the record, of their exploits and parts played in the single worst moment in America's history. With on-the-record confessions, the seeking of the death penalty was insured through military tribunal. What New Yorkers are now left with after the administration's move are mere words that Holder will "seek" the death penalty. And President Obama added his "assurance" that they would receive "the most exacting form of justice" possible. Yet if that was a foregone conclusion, why must he give assurances? Congressman Peter King pledges to fight with all his might for the next 45 days to overturn this amazing mistake."

Following is a video concerning President Obama's once held beliefs regarding a military trial for Mohammed. It's short, but telling.
Mike Allen reports:
TOKYO — Trying to reassure allies and rivals, President Barack Obama billed himself Saturday as "America’s first Pacific president," promising the nations of Asia "a new era of engagement with the world based on mutual interests and mutual respect." Turning tough, Obama also said that the U.S. "will not be cowed by threats" from North Korea, which he said for decades "has chosen a path of confrontation and provocation."
Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
