Obama Suddenly Ends His Luxury Vacation to Speak
Perhaps Obama now wants to be president where he matters?
Why else would he suddenly end another luxurious vacation to speak in Indonesia?
To protect his legacy! That and the lure of $400,000 a speech are the two intoxicants for Barack to cut his fun short.
We reported on part of Obama’s speech to the Indonesians, as he hammered President Trump’s policies on protecting America.
How dare President Trump actually put America first! What a slap in the face to the previous Obama administration that essentially made a whore out of Lady Liberty.
Obama addressed a crowd in Jakarta, his childhood home, to open the Fourth Congress of Indonesian Diaspora on Saturday, ending his 10-day family vacation.
Obama alluded to Trump’s policies:
“If we don’t stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue.”
“What we will see is more and more people arguing against democracy, we will see more and more people who are looking to restrict freedom of the press, and we’ll see more intolerance, more tribal divisions, more ethnic divisions, and religious divisions and more violence.”
I opined about the ironies and hypocrisies of Obama’s comments here.
However, I want to continue with Obama’s comments in Indonesia as he has become the half-black Al Gore of climate change:
Obama took a swipe at his successor, claiming President Donald Trump had caused a ‘temporary absence of American leadership’ when it comes to climate change policy.
In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history about climate change, an agreement that even with the temporary absence of American leadership, can still give our children a fighting chance,’ Obama said.
Trump shocked many countries last month rightfully pulling the United States out of the Paris climate agreement.
President Trump recognizes the farce of climate change.
More importantly, he recognizes the money-grab the rest of the world planned on U.S. taxpayers. Further, if there is any country who represents great stewardship of the planet, it’s the United States.
What does Obama plan to accomplish in Jakarta?
While in his former home, Obama met with Indonesian President Joko Widodo just outside Jakarta. Let’s hope they discussed Obama’s future residence there.
Why not, as in his speech, Obama reminisced about moving to Jakarta in 1967 when he was just six years old. He shouted ‘Indonesia bagian dari diri saya!’, which translates to ‘Indonesia is part of me!’
Obama parroted the leftist talking points around the world: tolerance.
As I often say, the Left tells you what they are not, as they try to convince you of what they are.
