Obama admin meddles, demanding “full restoration of democratic order” in Honduras


What a difference a day makes. “Meddling” by the Obama admin is now in vogue when it supports extreme leftist leaders, as I posted on Sunday. But the Obama admin is not confining themselves merely to “words”, but is evidently working behind the scenes to get ousted President, Manuel Zelaya, reinstated.

Honduras’ newly appointed leader vowed Monday to resist pressure from across the Americas to reinstate the president ousted in a military coup, as protesters burned tires outside the occupied presidential palace.

Leaders from Hugo Chavez to Barack Obama called for the reinstatement of Manuel Zelaya, who was arrested in his pajamas Sunday morning by soldiers who stormed his residence and flew him into exile. Eight leftist countries pulled their ambassadors from Honduras.

Roberto Micheletti, appointed president by Congress, insisted that Zelaya was legally removed by the courts and Congress for violating Honduras’ constitution — allegedly to extend his rule.


Micheletti said he was sure that “80 to 90 percent of the Honduran population is happy with what happened.”

True or false, the rest of the world certainly was not, and the president of the U.N. General Assembly invited Zelaya to address the world gathering.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was working for “full restoration of democratic order in Honduras.”

U.S. diplomats said they are trying to ensure Zelaya’s safety and get him restored as president. Clinton signalled, however, the U.S. wasn’t siding fully with Zelaya, who had rejected several Supreme Court decisions before being overthrown.

“There are certain concerns about orders by independent judicial officials that should be followed,” Clinton said. “But the extraordinary step taken of arresting and expelling the president is our first and foremost concern right now.”

She indicated the State Department has not formally declared Zelaya’s ouster to be a coup because U.S. laws would then require cutting aid to the impoverished country.

“We’re considering the implications of it,” she said.

Removal from office for usurping rule of law in Honduras is an “extraordinary step”?? What I find “extraordinary” is the two-faced US President’s foreign policy, as well as his friends in the international community. Also calling for reinstatement is the Organization of American States. And then, of course, there’s the UN… with Ban Ki-moon parroting the usual “condemns” comment.


UPDATE: Were the post-arrest meddling not enough, Sweetness & Light latched on to more than interesting revelations in a WSJ article today, that documents senior Obama officials admitted they worked feverishly to prevent the law-breaking President’s arrest.

The Obama administration and members of the Organization of American States had worked for weeks to try to avert any moves to overthrow President Zelaya, said senior U.S. officials. Washington’s ambassador to Honduras, Hugo Llorens, sought to facilitate a dialogue between the president’s office, the Honduran parliament and the military.

The efforts accelerated over the weekend, as Washington grew increasingly alarmed. “The players decided, in the end, not to listen to our message,” said one U.S. official involved in the diplomacy. On Sunday, the U.S. embassy here tried repeatedly to contact the Honduran military directly, but was rebuffed. Washington called the removal of President Zelaya a coup and said it wouldn’t recognize any other leader.

The U.S. stand was unpopular with Honduran deputies. One congressman, Toribio Aguilera, got prolonged applause from his colleagues when he urged the U.S. ambassador to reconsider. Mr. Aguilera said the U.S. didn’t understand the danger that Mr. Zelaya and his friendships with Mr. Chavez and Cuba’s Fidel Castro posed.

Well… just a slight correction to Mr. Aguilera’s comment: I’d say that many of us understand the dangers posed by such friendships and alliances with the Chavez’s and Castro’s of the world. It’s the leftist patsy occupying the Oval Office that simply doesn’t “get it”, were I to give him the benefit of the doubt of wanting what is best for America as we have known it to be since it’s inception. Perhaps, a more accurate assessment is that Obama *does* get it, and openly lends his support to such leadership and dangerous allies because of his “empathies” that lie strongly with similiar governing ideology. Perhaps, with his popularity with citizenry that seem unconcerned with the US’s march towards the far left, he feels this is his personal mandate in “remaking America”.



I would so look forward to a viable explanation of why it’s okay to meddle with a nation who removes their President via every legal channel, but it’s not okay to meddle with a despotic regime in Iran flagrantly ignoring fair elections and committing human rights abuses on their population. But I won’t be holding my breath for the big Zero – and his fellow “citizens of the world” – to reconcile their actions…

Then again, how long before the current WH occupant finds himself subject to the same in the US, should his present path to spit on US Constitutional law continue? Eventually someone’s going to have the impetus to haul this arrogant “follower of the free world” before the SCOTUS.

“We’re considering the implications of it,” she said.

Obama just saw his future flashing before his eyes and got all sweaty.
Damn pesky constitutions and rule of law.

I wonder if the Honduran Army takes an oath to “protect and defend” their Constitution from all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC, just like ours in the US does? Hmmmmmm???

If this had happened at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., I’d be a lot more interested. As it is, we get to watch “Hypocrisy in Action”. I used to be a HRC supporter but she lost me (as well as the veil over my eyes) when she joined the Fraud in Chief, acting as one of his mouthpieces.

I will say it again.
A Marxist supporting a Marxist. Disgusting. Typical hypocrite leftist.

Mata asks: ” I would so look forward to a viable explanation of why it’s okay to meddle with a nation who removes their President via every legal channel, but it’s not okay to meddle with a despotic regime in Iran flagrantly ignoring fair elections and committing human rights abuses on their population. “

It is really soooo simple.

In Iran we have America hating thugs allied with Venezuela’s Chavez. NO MEDDLING.

In Honduras, we have a regime aligned with Venezuela’s Chavez and Castro’s Cuba overthrown, so Peddle to the Meddle!

I think it’s time we took a page out of the Honduras playbook. It may come to that if we can’t get congress to wake up and do the job that they were elected to do. Oh, sorry… I was bringing logic into a converation on congress – my bad!

Mike, “Peddle to the Meddle”, great “wish I said that” line, or also Peddle to the Muddle. Obvious which side Obi Iwon is on; it ain’t ours.

The Hondurans think a Zelayas 2nd term would turn into a Chavez proxy government and Chavez already threatened Micheletti.

Chavez–ruler for life, his buddy Ahmadinejad wants to be and Zelayas attempted to step outside the Constitution to extend his power. They are all connected and Obama has no problem with it. He tries to protect a murdering human rights abusing election thief and now a law breaker, citizens of those countries be damned.

Obama’s huggie buddy Chavez is allowing Hezbollah to train in Venezuala so they can finish off Israel as soon as they all get Iran’s nuke program up and running. Such a tight little group and the idiot in chief thinks he’s going to talk them into or out of something, but not before he makes things more miserable for Israel.

Oh yeah, NoKorea also figures into this little group of crazies.

Oh, and BTW, Obama is the UN’s proxy. Before we get rid of him we will be pledging allegience to the UN.

Well, here we are AGAIN discussing usurper Obama, as if he were a REAL PRESIDENT, when in fact he doesn’t even meet the basic ELIGIBILITY requirements to BE president (not born on American soil). It’s not a small matter of him not providing a real US birth certificate when asked by the American people, it’s that HE DOESN’T HAVE ONE TO BEGiN WITH because he was BORN IN KENYA.

Which by the way, makes every bill Obama signs and every THING he DOES acting as president, iLLEGAL. And pretty much means if we let this go on we are breaking the law right along with him. CONSTITUTIONAL CRISES!

Come join me and help put up another billboard around the USA, it’s only $5 the cost for a pack of smokey-dokes (a pack of ciggs for Obama)

CLICK HERE TO HELP DONATE MORE BILLBOARDS ACROSS THE USA (you know, the country that requires a president be born on U.S. soil?)

Is there any doubt left that Obama is the ANTI-American president?

The next time a presidential candidate tells us he/she is going to “remake” America, we would be wise to take that person at their word.

I posted the other day that Obama is anything but weak, only Anti-American and radically, dangerously, left, determined to destroy all good things of America.

So exactly what do you do with a President that defies the Supreme Court while trying to make his permanent re-election possible. I’d say that Honduras’ now ex-president, Mel Zelaya, got the easy way out.

I watch in awe these countries with will & nerve to overthrow their government. Here in the US, with all of the bloviating thaat takess place regarding a similar move, i know damn well the communist, fascist, anti democracy, thug loving asshole in the WH, will walk out at the end of his term. I only hope that the republicans who refused to vote for McCain & gave Hussein a free pass into the WH have/will endure great suffering for their act. Maybe next election they will vote. If not, Hussein will just finish us off.

Hey, a whole lot of Love here and a lot of Common Sense. I keep coming back here because it renews my faith in America.

The Half Kenyan Pretender in Chief is succeeding in alienating America on a daily basis.
If he serves a full term it will be a miracle. His Citizenship is not as large an issue as his
violations of the Constitution and devious methods to avoid governing within the Constitutional
limits of his employment. He is transparent as hell and his Socialist roots are obvious. His Regime is out of control. His Cabinet Appointees do the dirty work while he and those turds Emmanuel and Axelrod sit back rubbing their filthy hands together.

Pelosi’s Congress deserves a good old fashioned lynch mob encounter. Harry Reid deserves the outcome of the next election and his replacement needs to remember that Voters can replace him too. Reid could not make a legitimate living. Maybe he can get a job as a greeter at a Walmart.

My Daughter’s College fund will be sent to buy arms for Dissidents in Iran. She got an appointment to the US Air Force Academy so she does not need it. The only thing she has asked for so far is for me to send her violin. She has chosen Lacrosse as her sport activity. They don’t allow female cadets to do any boxing. She is 5′ 8″, weighs 132 lbs runs 4:20 miles and can bench press her own weight easily.

Now on Cap & Trade there is a fail safe. It is the Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution. If the Senate rolls over and plays dead, it will fall upon your States to kill that tyranny. Get loud, call your State folks, email them to hell and back. Be as Bold as those 56 Patriots that signed their names to the Declaration of Independence. If your Rep was treasonous and voted for Cap & Trade call their offices in district and get howling mad. Only threaten to vote them out of office and say it like you mean it! 2010 is coming.


They took great personal risks and the outcome was very uncertain but their courage was what founded a Nation. This Independence Day weekend reflect on that. Have your BBQ, eat drink and be merry but never forget who you are or from whose efforts your Freedom came from. Their legacy is now in your hands. Preserve that heritage for your Children and theirs.

I will roast half a steer, have fireworks that will be seen from Helena, Boise, Coeur de Alene and maybe Spokane. I-Day is a huge holiday for me. No celebratory gunfire like in Iraq but
a celebration of continued Faith in America, American Values and a collection of guests from my Service and a few neighbors that scratched Obama stickers off their bumpers have seen repentance for voting stupid.

I am in good humor and will respond to All Snarky and Stupid comments tonight.
I have a mare in labor tonight and expect to be up all night.

Take Care, have Faith and Never Quit the Fight!

america will rebell but it will only be when we are all unemployed and lose our homes. as long as the tv still works and popcorn can be popped, america will still be sheeple. i live in pennsylvania and it is truly pathetic. single teenage mothers litter the streets while the fathers walk around with their pants to their knees. the language they all use is gutter and the welfare checks flow like honey. if they even vote, it will be whoever gives them the biggest checks through the mail. the parenting is horrible, these kids look in the mirror and see their parents staring back at them. we have created a sub-society that has many members.

i’m sure this is going on in all cities, i ask how can we get our youth back on track? have we slid down the slope to far or is there a way to climb back up. if the parnets aren’t doing the right thing how can the offspring? this kind of sub-society is growing everyday. these are the people that voted for obamba, however, you spell his name.

i pray that there are still enough of us that believe in our country and get us back on track.

I apologize profusely for being off topic but I noticed another Ron posting on FA. So just for clarification, if I post a comment, I’ll post as Ron R.

Oh and yes Obama is a massive hypocrite!
