Oslo Edition of Saturday Night Live
Wolf Blitzer needs to continue his fact checking.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer recently devoted time to fact-checking a Saturday Night Live skit that cast a less than favorable light upon failure of The One to deliver on his campaign promises.
Surely Mr. Blitzer will follow up with an analysis of the lack of basis for the Nobel committee’s awarding its Peace Prize to President Obama.
He will find his rebuttal work easy.
The President has done exactly nothing in the way of concrete action to stabilize volatile foreign conditions or to restrain rogue states (Iran, Russia, North Korea) that continually work to destabilize world political and economic conditions. No effective action, just talk, talk, talk. All of that talk has been ignored by rogue states, which have contemptuously dismissed Obama’s empty words and continued unrestrained in their campaigns to dominate Asia and the Middle East.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
President Barack Obama said Friday that he is honored to win the Nobel Peace Prize and will accept it as a “call to action” to work with other nations to solve the world’s most pressing problems.
Should the Peace Prize be awarded as an incentive to action, rather than as a recognition of things done?
Why did the Committee award the Peace Prize to Obama? or, for that matter, to Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, and Yassar Arafat?
The answer appears to lie in the Scandinavian worship of the socialist political state and its aspirations to world government. As world government is a long way from reality, the Peace Prize goes to propagandists who most loudly mouth platitudes or jeremiads about perfecting all of humanity through the UN’s socialist control of the world’s economic and political institutions.
Why not a retrospective award to socialist stalwart Joseph Goebbels for his work in bringing Hitler’s National Socialist Third Reich into being, with its “tomorrow the world” promise of a new world order?
