Candy Man 00

President Barack Obama said at the “White House Summit on Global Development” that “we are living in the most peaceful” era in human history and that “the world has never been less violent.”

According to the White House schedule, the president used the summit to “bring together development leaders, public and private sector financing partners, civil society, diplomats, and entrepreneurs to mark our global progress and catalyze further development efforts.”

“So it is worth reminding ourselves of how lucky we are to be living in the most peaceful, most prosperous, most progressive era in human history,” Obama said in the speech.

“Because the world has never been less violent, healthier, better educated, more tolerant, with more opportunity for more people, and more connected than it is today,” he also said.

Here are “excerpts” from the president’s speech as “transcribed” on the White House website:

Obviously, this has been a tough couple of weeks, not just here in the United States but around the world. And that’s being amplified to some degree during political season. So I think maybe it’s worth stepping back for a moment. This is a challenging time–with threats of terrorism, an international order that is buffeted by all different kinds of events, a sense that globalization is leaving too many people behind and expanding inequality within countries, even if we are seeing progress in the aggregate.

And all of this creates legitimate fears and anxieties that have to be addressed, and at least a feeling, a perception that people don’t have full control over a rapidly changing world. So it is worth reminding ourselves of how lucky we are to be living in the most peaceful, most prosperous, most progressive era in human history.

Now, that’s hard to absorb if we’re watching the newscasts every night, because there’s heartbreak and terrible things taking place at any given moment across the globe. But it’s important for us to remember, not so that we become complacent but so that we understand that good works can make a difference. Think about it. It has been decades since a war between major powers. More people live in democracies. More people are linked by technology. Thanks in part to the dedication and passion and hard work of so many of the people who are gathered here today, in recent decades the world has achieved incredible advances in development and human dignity. ….

And sometimes when I’m talking to young interns at the White House who are still immunizing themselves from the cynicism that’s so chronic in this town–I remind them, if you had to choose a moment in history to be born, and you didn’t know ahead of time who you were going to be, you’d choose now. Because the world has never been less violent, healthier, better educated, more tolerant, with more opportunity for more people, and more connected than it is today….

Perhaps Obama fancies himself “The Candy Man,” you know, in the Sammy Davis, Jr. song.

Because this is seriously “delusional,” powered, it seems, by “hallucinatory” drugs.

That, or Obama is “evil” and his contempt for the “truth” and the American people “knows no bounds.”

Candy Man 02

Nice, Jerusalem, San Bernardino, Fort Hood, Chattanooga, Paris, Brussels, Garland, Orlando, Boston, Dhaka, Benghazi, Nairobi, Nigeria, the CAR, Southern Thailand,…

You can’t get on to a plane, or enter a building in major cities, go to a ball game, a concert or play without going through an extensive security check.

The daily “social” fabric of our lives has “completely and utterly” changed.

American citizens “arming” themselves in unprecedented “numbers” as a way to potentially “save” lives.

We live in a “state of perpetual religious war.”

And how about America, Mr. President?
Obama: ‘The World Has Never Been Less Violent’

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABarack Bamboozles Berlin
By: Jeannie DeAngelis

Barack Obama showed up “again” in Berlin.

Sadly, 194,000 of the fawning “devotees” that cheered him like a rock star in 2008 chose to “skip” the 2013 encore.

Nonetheless, directly out of the Brandenburg gate, the president commenced with “injecting” race and gender into the conversation when he said “Angela and I don’t exactly look like previous German and American leaders.”

Obama then “informed” the audience, consigned by invitation to stand in the “blistering” heat listening to his “blather”, that Michelle, Malia, and Sasha, rather than “endure” his grueling speech, chose instead to experience the “beauty and the history of Berlin” at American taxpayers’ expense.

But probably the most “amazing” aspect of Obama’s Berlin speech was his typical lack of “self-awareness” when making assertions that “conflict” with everything he does.

For instance, although President Obama is actively persecuting the “unoriginated birthright of man,” he quoted German philosopher Immanuel Kant, who said “freedom is the ‘unoriginated birthright of man, and it belongs to him by force of his humanity.'”

Obama even posed questions Americans ask about him:

“Will we live free or in chains? Under governments that uphold our universal rights, or regimes that suppress them? In open societies that respect the sanctity of the individual and our free will, or in closed societies that suffocate the soul?”

In Berlin, Obama attempted to one-up Ronald Reagan’s “Peace through Strength” strategy by stealing John F. Kennedy’s “Peace with Justice” mantra and scheduled the “revision” to take place at Brandenburg Gate, where his “social justice” spiel paled in comparison to “authentic” Reagan strength.

Speaking of contradictions, Mr. Obama shared that Kennedy’s words are “timeless because they call upon us to care more about things than just our own self-comfort.”

This from a president who’s about to “embark” on a $100 million African vacation, toting along a wife whose “self-comfort” demands recently included “bunking” in a $4,000-a-night “Princess Grace” suite in Ireland.

After encouraging youthful unemployed Germans to “relinquish” self-comfort, citizen of the world Obama shifted to “For we are not only citizens of America or Germany — we are also citizens of the world. And our fates and fortunes are linked like never before.”

That is, unless linking “fates and fortunes” means sharing a $4,000-a-night hotel room with Michelle Obama.

Never mentioning pressure cookers, hijacked airplanes, banana hammock bombers, or wild-eyed Muslims gunning down American soldiers, and after riding around in an armored limo and building a mysterious underground bunker beneath the White House, Obama proclaimed, “We may no longer live in fear of global annihilation, but so long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe.”

President Obama also seemed to “imply” that food stamps and unemployment checks may be the “answer” to the threat of worldwide “terrorism”, which he claimed results from the “agony of an empty stomach or the anguish of unemployment.”

Then, after “dissing” Catholic education in Ireland, Obama “dredged” up sins that penitent nations have already “remediated” when he unnecessarily brought up intolerance and abuses “based on race, or religion, gender or sexual orientation.”

Obama then advanced a “concept” that he doesn’t apply to Christians or American conservatives, which is that “When we stand up for our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters and treat their love and their rights equally under the law, we defend our own liberty as well.”

That’s when the “Peace with justice” rant began.

Obama cited “free” enterprise and freedom, neither of which he’s a “huge” fan of.

From there, he “segued” into environmentalism, closing Guantanamo, ending the Afghan war, controlling the drones he has surveilling U.S. airspace, undermining the Constitution and calling it “balancing the pursuit of security with the protection of privacy,” and meeting moral “obligations” that have nothing to do with morality.

Funny, Obama proves he’s vulnerable to “nuclear” self-destruction whenever the Teleprompter is unavailable.

Yet, he “imagines” peace can only be realized through “sending” a message to America’s “enemies” that in a nuclear-aggressive environment the most “powerful” nation in the world is voluntarily “reducing” the number of its nuclear warheads.

Then, after “sparring” with Vladimir Putin, the ex-KGB communist adulterer who’s clearly not a bastion of “trustworthiness” over Syria and G-8 gym space, the president claimed that Russia and the U.S. “reject the nuclear weaponization that North Korea and Iran may be seeking.”

Did he say “may be seeking?” What Obama forgot to explain was how “rejecting” nuclear weaponization saves lives if Kim Jong-Un or Hassan Rohani “decides” to lob a nuke.

Not to worry though. Barack quoted James Madison and then claimed that he too is moving “beyond a mindset of perpetual war.”

The president cited a 2016 “secure” nuclear materials summit, which despite the growing “threat” of international terrorism, Obama believes is a “step toward creating a world of peace with justice.”

The problem is that the guy who said “Threats to freedom don’t merely come from the outside. They can emerge from within” is the one “threatening” America’s freedom, and the “perpetual warfare” he speaks of is not America’s doing.

Nonetheless, in an attempt to soothe “irate” Germans who do not take kindly to “tyrannical despots” infringing on The Lives of Others, Barack Obama suggested something he does through “surveillance” — not face-to-face — which is to “listen to the voices who disagree” with him.

Next he laughably added the importance of “always remembering that government exists to serve the power of the individual, and not the other way around.”

Barack Obama ended with a Martin Luther King Jr. quote crescendo: “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

In the end, so too does “loss of freedom in America threaten freedom everywhere.”

That loss is precisely why, both in Germany and here at home, free people must grasp the potentially harmful impact the “peace-loving” guy standing behind eight inches of bulletproof glass seeks to “impose” on the Western world.
