Never Let a Few Facts Stand in the Way.

The Left wing media and the usual suspects all went ga- ga over the Chief Occupiers speech at Cairo University. They all called it a great outreach to “the Muslims of the World”. Politically that may be somewhat correct but it dang sure was a total fisco when it came to historical content. As I have said many times before this egotist never lets correct historical facts or any other facts when it comes right down to it, stand in the way of making himself look good in the eyes of the uniformed.

The Chief Occupier quoted from the Koran about 4 times from what I can track back to the text of the speech. He said, "Islam has always been a part of America's story. The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco...let there be no doubt, Islam is a part of America.". Sounds real good but as usual he is wrong again. On November 16 1776, officials from Saint Eustatius in the Dutch West Indies fired the first salute to a warship bearing the American Flag. So it was Holland, not Morocco that first recognized the US. I believe it was

Ronald Regan who once said that folks are certainly entitled to their own opinion but not entitled to their own facts. Evidently the chief occupier is not familiar with those words either.

Next the Chief Occupier cited John Adams at the time of the signing of the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796. According to the CO Adams said we had “no enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility of Muslims. “ Boy, that makes for nice sound bites and soothing words to those who would destroy us but there is just one problem. The Barbary Pirates, operating out of Tripoli were preying on American ships. Adams was evidently an appeaser as is this occupier of the WH and attempted to buy them off. By 1800, according to history books, the US was paying out nearly one fifth of its entire budget to buy off and pay off these “terrorist” in North Africa. When Thomas Jefferson became President in 1801, he did what any President with a spine would do and he sent the Marines to the “shores of Tripoli” to take care of this matter and we know from history the outcome of a situation when the Marines are sent in. Jefferson wouldn’t bow to the to the Muslims and was determined to stop the seizing of US ships and the selling of American seaman into slavery.

Another interesting fact that I ran across in one of the Jefferson biographies had to do with why Jefferson had a copy of the Koran in his possession. It seems that he studied the Koran to see if as the Muslim diplomats stationed in Paris , while Jefferson was serving as Ambassador, were correct in saying that the Koran gave them the right to attack American ship and enslave American sailors as well as seizing other “infidels. Turns out that Jefferson determined they didn’t have that right so he determined that the US must fight and not pay extortion to protect her citizens.

Well another example of the Chief Occupier using “Just Words” to twist and parley them into what ever he wants them to say. I can imagine the Muslim leaders having a hysterical laugh at the ignorance of the pretender. I certainly did as I was checking his “facts”. Now , as Paul Harvey would say, you know the rest of the story.

With sincere apology to William Shakespeare for this fractured allegory, “A fool and his facts are soon parted.”

"Just words...just speeches." How prophetic that has become.

Good work, friend.

GM Roper said...

Ticker, you, Maggie and Mustang, have it right. The "Chief Occupier" is so full of crap, he might as well go into business as a sewage processing plant. How on earth did this liar get elected?

Ticker said...

GM, The dregs from the sewer elected him.

I watched the speech live and watched BHO play fast and loose with historical facts. As far as I can tell, not a single one of the broadcast media, including FNC, has taken BHO to task about those LIES in his speech.

Like you really expected them too?

It could be of course that they are as dumb as he is when it comes to knowing history. But again that is giving them too much benefit of the doubt.

At what cost? When extending an olive branch, make sure the recipient is not hiding a sword in the other hand, poised to strike.

Having been assigned to that part of the world at one time there is no doubt that there is a sword in hand hidden behind the back poised to strike.
I learned quickly that the people, for the most part, in that part of the world are double dealing regardless of the situation being discussed.

The chief occupier however thinks his charm will cause them to bow down and worship at his feet and do his bidding. They laugh at him and see him as a weakling to be used to their advantage.
