Obama Keep Your Leftist Hands off Honduras

Lieutenant Colonel Ollie North

A true American Hero and Patriot

I've carried this image in my briefcase now for over 20 years to remind me
what patriotism means.

Recently I came across the below short comment by Pat Buchanan and thought it worthy of passing along. Obama's acted quickly to prop-up a leftist dictator in Latin American while taking almost a week to show any support for the freedom fighters in Iran and then only taking that step after being pushed into it by the likes of Hillary Clinton and others. I can only see two possible reasons for Obama's lack of action on Iran: first- he is so indecisive that its takes others to make decisions for him, or that he is cowardly and afraid to rock the foreign policy boat. Both of these are problems for us down the road. And as to the situation in Honduras, the reason for the swift action here is clear and leaves little room for doubt, Obama is a leftist and its only natural that he support of leftist dictator. Reminds me of the Democratic party support for the Sandinista's during Reagan's years where Reagan and Ollie North had to circumvent the restrictions imposed by the Democrats and help the Contra's retake their country from a communist dictator, Daniel Ortegua.

Last Saturday, Honduran soldiers marched into the presidential palace, bundled up President Manuel Zelaya and put him on a plane for Costa Rica.

We really like gun owners.

The ouster had been ordered by the Supreme Court and approved by the Congress, as Zelaya was attempting an illegal referendum to change the Honduran constitution so he could run for another term.

Will someone please explain why this bloodless transfer of power to the civilian legislator first in line for the presidency, in a sovereign nation, is any business of the United Nations, the Organization of American States, Hugo Chavez, the Castro brothers or Barack Obama? For all have denounced the "coup" and demanded Zelaya's immediate return.

The hypocrisy here is astounding.

Chavez was imprisoned for his bloody coup attempt in Venezuela in 1992. And to have Fidel Castro's dictatorship of half a century denouncing a glitch in the democratic process of a Western Hemisphere republic is beyond parody.

What percentage of the 200 member nations of that septic tank of anti-Americanism, the United Nations, are democracies? How many leaders of its member states came to power through free and fair elections?

Pat definitely has this one right and he remembers the days of Reagan and Ollie North, both great Americans.
