FASHION CHOICES AND STRATEGY: The difference between Prime Minister David Cameron and President Barack Obama

President Barack Obama’s press conference yesterday was an amazing show of lack of initiative, both symbolically and verbally. Obama appeared at the podium in a beige suit, which is used in the business world to blend in and avoid attention. The social media world was exploding with comments about his beige suit.

Then, Obama went on to say that he still did not have a strategy to deal with ISIS– whom Obama referred to as a Junior Varsity team earlier this year. In the meantime, ISIS is advancing through Iraq and Syria, terrorizing and controlling territories, erasing national borders, executing people en masse and making it practically impossible for aid to reach victims.

On the Russian front, Obama feels that sanctions will take care of Vladimir Putin– but so far, this has not deterred Putin from carving out pieces of Ukraine and swallowing them up.

President Obama essentially left the American people cold.

Today the United Kingdom raised its threat level to severe- and as I write this brief commentary Prime Minister Cameron is holding a press conference.

The first thing one noticed was Cameron’s choice of a dark suit and a dark tie– which in the world of political public perception represents seriousness and power.

Cameron did not have a teleprompter in front of him– and delivered his message with clarity and determination. He behaved the way a leader should behave.

Cameron said that the ISIS threat cannot be solved with foreign policy alone, because we are facing violent religious extremism, which is a great and deep threat to the security of Europe and the world, by seeking to establish itself at the edge of the Mediterranean.

Cameron called for a tough, intelligent and comprehensive approach which will involve a generational struggle, and provided examples of the multiple steps that are being taken to keep the British homeland safe, including confiscation of passports, and denial of entry and/or citizenship, to those who present a threat to the British homeland. Cameron stated that he will do whatever it takes to keep the British people safe.

Without question, Prime Minister Cameron’s press conference made President Obama’s press conference look like a Junior Varsity practice session.

Spain in the crosshairs

SPAIN IN THE CROSSHAIRS - Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.
Standard

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Spain has been warned by authorities in Morocco that 3,000 jihadists fighting in Syria against Bashar al-Assad are making their way back home to Morocco—posing a danger to Spain. A great number of these Moroccan jihadists are from the cities of Ceuta and Melilla, which are Spanish autonomous communities in North Africa; as such, these jihadists may have the necessary documentation to enter Spain.

The majority of the Moroccan jihadist combatants belonged to Harakat Sham al-Islam, which is considered to be one of the most “distinguished” groups in the Islamic front; however, the group, which was founded in August 2013 by three Moroccan former detainees (who were freed from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp) announced on July 25, 2014 that Harakat Sham al-Islam is now part of the Ansar al-Deen Front (Ansar Dine).

Ansar al-Deen / Ansar Dine is a group that emerged in Mali in March 2012, which seeks the implementation of a strict Sharia Law system.  Like a cancer, it has spread and fused with other Islamic terror cells.  There are Spanish nationals who joined this group in Syria, as combatants against al-Assad.  They have used Syria as a training ground before returning to the Maghreb region of Northwest Africa (west of Egypt)– in order to wage jihad.

Spain’s Minister of the Interior, Jorge Fernández Díaz, has warned about the urgent situation faced by the European Union, in keeping a watch on jihadists that return to Europe from combat areas.  It is estimated that there is a mobilized contingency of jihadist Spanish nationals in mainland Spain.

Spain is in the crosshairs of Islamic groups, including ISIS, who want to recapture the Iberian peninsula.

May God help us all.

The attack on Flight 17: Will this act of war be forgotten?

FLIGHT 17 - AMSTERDAM-KUALA LUMPUR - JULY 17, 2014 - Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart. All rights reserved.
Standard

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Flight 17: the aftermath

The gruesome photos of dismembered bodies and pieces of fuselage scattered over a 10-mile radius near the Ukrainian-Russian border— is a scene from hell.  It is a rather painful coincidence that this horrific attack took place on the 96th anniversary of another gruesome event: the execution of the Russian Royal family, by the Bolsheviks.

The attack on Flight 17 is an act of war– which, according to reports, appears to have been perpetrated by individuals who had access to, and operational knowledge of a BUK, which is a Russian-made, medium-range surface-to-air missile system.

While the Ukrainians blame the Russians– and the Russians blame the Ukrainians, intelligence reports from the United Kingdom and Washington are pointing the finger at Vladimir Putin and his Russian-backed separatist forces in eastern Ukraine.

Barack Obama’s initial disconnected remarks about the plane’s crash (“it appears to be a tragedy“) were quite disturbing– even to the point of eliciting criticism from the mainstream media.

A similar disconnected tone was also noted in a joint statement by the President of the European Commission and the President of the European Council in Brussels.

Approximately twenty-four hours later, Obama did some image damage control by presenting a much more somber approach, demanding accountability and calling for an in-depth investigation of the attack. The Europeans followed suit.

It should come as no surprise that during this international socialist era, both the United States government and the European Union are looking towards the United Nations for a plan to address the attack on flight 17.

What?

The United Nations?

Yes, the same United Nations which has elected Cuba and Russia to the Human Rights Council– but somehow forgot to include Ukraine.

As expected, Fidel Castro came out 
in defense of Russia.

Yes, the same United Nations which has Russia and China as permanent members of the United Nations “Security” Council.

Which begs the question: how can anyone expect that the United Nations is going to legitimately assume the role of decision-maker and justice-seeker in the act of war involving Flight 17– when it protects and elevates terrorist communist governments to positions of leadership?

Ah… but you see, the United Nations is the “new leader” of the world– and you have been conditioned to accept this as a “global citizen.”

Interestingly, a few hours before the attack on Flight 17, I had published a brief commentary on a decision made by a Dutch court, declaring the Netherlands liable for the death of 300 Bosniaks in 1995, who were under the protection of Dutch UN peacekeepers.  This court decision brings into question the reliability of the UN “peacekeeping” forces– when it comes to the protection of innocent civilians in war-torn regions.

How does Flight 17 compare 
with other planes brought down 
by a missile attack, gunfire 
or terrorist-related sabotage?

What about the United States?

Gone are the days of the United States lighting the way in times of war.  Washington has been weakened and disfigured by decades of corruption and lack of moral leadership.

While the remains of 298 innocent victims, including 80 children and some of the world’s top scientists in the field of AIDS research, lie dismembered in the remote fields of eastern Ukraine, innocent people all over the world will continue to be put in harms way, as they wait for justice from the bureaucrats in the United Nations.

This is the tragic reality of our times.

May this act of war not be forgotten– and may the passengers and crew members of Flight 17 rest in the peace of Our Lord.

Vladimir Putin visits Fidel and Raúl Castro: The Love Affair Continues

Vladimir Putin and Fidel Castro - Havana - July 11, 2014
Standard

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

Old flames never die...

Ahhhh, I’ve missed you Raúl.  I’ve missed you too, Vlad.

As a survivor of Fidel Castro’s murderous Communist dictatorship– and as one who opposes the aggressive and oppressive international agenda of the homosexual collective against those who disagree with homosexual “marriage”–- I am appalled at the level of ignorance from those who are throwing their support behind Putin and his KGB-infested Russian Orthodox Church, as a solution to this catastrophe. These individuals are basing their enthusiasm on Putin’s farcical Christian proclamations of Russia as a moral world leader.  

And for those out there who are running out of excuses– NO, MY CRITICISM OF PUTIN DOES NOT MEAN that Washington and the European Union hold the MORAL high ground. Not at all.

Well, well, well. Surprise. Surprise.

Let’s see what alibi the fans of Vladimir Putin come up with this time. These impressionable and terribly uninformed individuals are falling on their knees, kissing Vladimir Putin’s feet and declaring him their new Christian hero– while Putin kisses communist murderers.

You see, it’s summer time– and the Russians are getting restless for tropical weather, as well as for new financial and military horizons where they can flex their muscles. That is exactly what Vladimir Putin is doing. So he headed straight to Havana– as the first stop in his tour of Latin America.

In Cuba, Putin enjoyed the island breezes, as well as the warm friendship and eternal gratitude of Fidel and Raúl Castro– who are just tickled pink to see their old friend Putin arrive bearing gifts like Santa Claus in the middle of the summer– that is, gifts of pecuniary forgiveness and promises to help finance an adventure down an oil rabbit hole, in Cuba’s coastal waters.

The Telegraph reports [information in brackets added for clarification]:

Mr. Putin laid a wreath at Revolution Square in Havana [Havana's Memorial to the Soviet Internationalist Soldier] with Raúl Castro, the communist island’s president, and later met for an hour behind closed doors with his older brother Fidel, the long-time former dictator.

The visit was far from ceremonial as Russia agreed to write off 90 per cent of the impoverished island’s $35 billion (£20 billion) debts to Moscow and announced a series of oil and trade initiatives with its ally, a staunch supporter of Mr. Putin during the Ukraine crisis.

Vladimir Putin is playing his devout Christian followers like a drum.

On one hand, Putin claims to oppose homosexuality in Russia and issues proclamations about “Christianity.”  On the other hand, he praises murderous, corrupt communist despots like Fidel and Raúl Castro– whose government pays for homosexual men to have sex-change operations– then incarcerates and tortures them when they dare to complain about government oppression. Is this the fulfillment of Castro’s dream for the creation of a “new man” in his Marxist utopia?

But we, too, have a “new man” in our midst.  The one who has emerged from the pews to support a former KGB thug like Vladimir Putin– who loves and supports Fidel Castro.

The Secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): Another ploy that could harm the United States

THE SECRETIVE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP. WHAT ARE THEY HIDING? Copyright © Marielena Montesino de Stuart.  All rights reserved.
Standard

By Marielena Montesino de Stuart

 

The U.S. as a permeable membrane 

The new Socialist Chilean President, Michelle Bachelet (whom President Obama has referred to as his “second favorite Michelle”) seems to have felt right at home in Obama’s White House, during today’s visit.

And guess what?

The TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) discussion came up.  Yes, the TPP– that monster that has been quietly growing like a virus in the bowels of various socialist governments, whose leaders love words that begin with “trans”– as a way of trans-nationally undermining the United States.

This TPP treaty is being viewed as a threat to our already weakened manufacturing base, our ability to oversee food safety, our oversight of copyright laws, etc.

The TPP could also interfere with our sovereignty, judicial proceedings and other national and security matters.  One can only expect that the TPP, once enacted, will further erode our ability to control our borders– allowing migratory movements, foreign worker programs and trade routes to further undermine our foreign policies. Furthermore, the thought of socialist nations transnationally interfering with our legislative decisions should make Americans tremble– since all signatory countries will be required to adjust their national laws, in order to comply with the provisions of the treaty.

The scope of the TPP is scary– to the point that it could make Obamacare look small.  Surprise, surprise. Very few members of Congress have read the contents of this treaty.

Shhhhhhhh

The secrecy surrounding the discussions of the TPP are also of deep concern– and appear to be part of the Obama administration’s ongoing agenda of withholding information from the American people.

Overall, the TPP is a globalist ploy– a part of Sustainable Development (the Agenda for the 21st Century) that the United Nations has been ramming down the throats of citizens worldwide, through socialist initiatives reached by “consensus.” The goal of the TPP is to establish a trading association among 11 countries on both sides of the Pacific (Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam) which would involve approximately 26 percent of international trade and approximately 40 percent of the world’s gross domestic product.

Final thoughts

As a survivor of communism, I like things to be clearly defined– and I do not want to see the United States turn into a permeable membrane that allows trans-national edicts to flow in and out.  This would transform the United States into a “region”– which is precisely what the international socialists wish to accomplish.

It does not appear that there will be an enthusiastic response for the TPP, following the mid-term elections in November. So far, Obama does not seem to be on firm grounds as far as reaching a negotiation with the House of Representatives, which is Republican-controlled.  I also do not hear much excitement from the Senate floor.

Negotiators from eleven Asia-Pacific countries will arrive in Ottawa to discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership next week.  As with any treaty that harms U.S. national interests, TPP participants and supporters are keeping things rather quiet.
