The piece below by John Bolton actually stopped me in my tracks. It’s funny how another writer’s observations will often help to coalesce one’s own discomfort with a situation. I have taken an unpopular position for an internet pro and citizen journalist blogger regarding Wikileaks, in that I feel what Julian Assange did was both narcissistic, shortsighted and reckless.
The ends do not justify his means and actions in my opinion. I am well aware that thousands of other “truthers” do not feel this way, but when it comes right down to genetic patriotism, the Cherokee Warrior Queen and American patriot in me trumps the internet blogger who was mildly intrigued by absolute unfettered free spewing of ” FED diplomatic cables”. As a truth researcher of 20 years experience, finding ugly little piles of lies buried somewhere under a false flag event is just another day’s work. Why should the content of those cables be anything that would even surprise someone like me? It’s just another day in the life… I haven’t much bothered to study them.
For me, the bottom line is this: I don’t want to see my country hurt and humiliated any more than it has been to date in this charade of a presidency with Obama as the hood ornament. There is a huge part of me that is standing aside and watching this melee who doesn’t buy the story as it’s being told anyway. Our government “allows” certain things to take place for their own good reasons. Look at what the FED is gaining in all this: perfect justification to crack down like never before on internet free speech, the free and relatively private process of registering and administering a domain name, I could cite dozens more benefits for a fascist leaning FED that is salivating to take over the web and run it with the efficiency of Obama’s socialized medicine. I can almost hear the elites rubbing their hands together in glee in Washington, NYC, UK while they watch these “cyber-riots” spreading over the web. It’s most likely exactly what they wanted all along, and they will use these events as more pretext to strip away civil liberties online when the dust settles.
Further, my political science mind clearly knows that what Assange did in releasing those cables has imperiled the American nation. That is MY nation, MY America, MY American friends and neighbors, and after all, Assange really has no clue about who and what America is if he did not grow up here on the mainland, native born. We all have before us daily the peculiar new world odor of our own President’s utter lack of interest in defending American interests, religious heritage, or national security in a sudden event like Wikileaks latest disclosures. They should have seen this coming. It was not as if we were not warned by Assange’s earlier actions. But John Bolton points out that funny uncomfortable, “who’s in charge?” feeling, that sense of navigational drift that now emanates from the Obama presidency.
It was as if in reading his piece, my subconscious fixed finally on the point of “Oh, so I am not the only person who feels very uncomfortable with how this Wikileaks / Assange mess is all being so adroitly NON-handled” by the White House.”
When you choose to go white water rafting with a group of strangers, you look around rather nervously to see who will be sitting at the lead point in the raft, calling out the instructions for how to keep the thing afloat and above water all the way down. Barack Obama stopped calling out those instructions to the nation a long time ago, in fact, it occurs he never did take the safety first defensive position for our country. It’s just a very deep gut feeling I have that his inner contempt for America and true American values is now really starting to spill over into all kinds of decision making moments when the moment comes, and goes, and no decision is the action taken. It’s surreal politically, and strategically rather self loathing, perhaps even self destructive.
I’ll just be honest. I want his presidency to end, and sooner rather than later. Barack Obama’s style of empty looking glass leadership is really hurting America. Everyone everywhere who is awake at the helm can feel it. And John Bolton [not that I am particularly a fan, he’s in the UN globalist fan club from way back ] just gave voice to some of my deepest worries and concerns. Thanks John. Oddly, I don’t feel much better now.

We have not in our lifetimes seen a president in this position. He spent his first year losing the center, which elected him, and his second losing his base, which is supposed to provide his troops. There isn’t much left to lose! Which may explain Tuesday’s press conference.
