Obama surrenders national security [Reader Post]


Whose side is he on? I have already posed that question.

It’s not enough that Barack Obama gives away British missile secrets to the Russians:

The US secretly agreed to give the Russians sensitive information on Britain’s nuclear deterrent to persuade them to sign a key treaty, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

Information about every Trident missile the US supplies to Britain will be given to Russia as part of an arms control deal signed by President Barack Obama next week.

Defence analysts claim the agreement risks undermining Britain’s policy of refusing to confirm the exact size of its nuclear arsenal.

The fact that the Americans used British nuclear secrets as a bargaining chip also sheds new light on the so-called “special relationship”, which is shown often to be a one-sided affair by US diplomatic communications obtained by the WikiLeaks website.

Now Obama seems bent on weakening our national defenses to the point of uselessness.

President Obama signaled Congress this week that he is prepared to share U.S. missile defense secrets with Russia.

In the president’s signing statement issued Saturday in passing into law the fiscal 2012 defense authorization bill, Mr. Obama said restrictions aimed at protecting top-secret technical data on U.S. Standard Missile-3 velocity burnout parameters might impinge on his constitutional foreign policy authority.

As first disclosed in this space several weeks ago, U.S. officials are planning to provide Moscow with the SM-3 data, despite reservations from security officials who say that doing so could compromise the effectiveness of the system by allowing Russian weapons technicians to counter the missile. The weapons are considered some of the most effective high-speed interceptors in the U.S. missile defense arsenal.

There are also concerns that Russia could share the secret data with China and rogue states such as Iran and North Korea to help their missile programs defeat U.S. missile defense.

Congress tried to stop him

Section 1227 of the defense law prohibits spending any funds that would be used to give Russian officials access to sensitive missile-defense technology, as part of a cooperation agreement without first sending Congress a report identifying the specific secrets, how they would be used and steps to protect the data from compromise.

but Obama has let it be known that he will have no part of anyone preventing him from giving away defense intelligence:

Mr. Obama said in the signing statement that he would treat the legal restrictions as “non-binding.”

“While my administration intends to keep the Congress fully informed of the status of U.S. efforts to cooperate with the Russian Federation on ballistic missile defense, my administration will also interpret and implement section 1244 in a manner that does not interfere with the president’s constitutional authority to conduct foreign affairs and avoids the undue disclosure of sensitive diplomatic communications.”

Apparently nostalgic for another massive breach of national security Barack Obama wants to arrange another Chinese nuclear scientist exchange:

Deputy Energy Secretary Daniel B. Poneman is working on a major Obama administration initiative that would renew scientist exchanges between U.S. nuclear weapons laboratories and Chinese nuclear facilities.

The idea is aimed at promoting openness and transparency by China’s military about its secret, large-scale buildup of nuclear weapons, according to U.S. officials.

Critics say the plan is similar to an exchange program in the 1990s that sent U.S. nuclear scientists to China and produced one of the worst cases of nuclear espionage. Secrets about every deployed warhead in the U.S. arsenal were compromised, including the W-88 small nuclear warhead deployed on submarine-launched missiles.

“We’ve seen this movie before, and it has a bad ending,” one official said.

Unlike Obama, the Chinese are resisting, recognizing the value of secrecy.

Chinese officials repeatedly have rejected U.S. calls for strategic nuclear talks, most recently in January during the visit there by then-Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates.

A 2008 State Department cable quoted Chinese Foreign Ministry official He Yafei as rejecting U.S. appeals for Chinese nuclear transparency, noting that openness “would eliminate the value of China’s strategic deterrent.”

How ironic that the President who wants to help prosecute the leaker of the climategate emails himself is so willing to leak national security secrets on his own.

It is no longer simply a good idea to change Presidents. It is absolutely imperative. Without such a change, we have no hope.

Is there any more doubt that this illegal POTUS is a muslim in disguise bent on bringing down the US?

He should be tried for treason!

What ever happened to the concept of treason?

what are they waiting for neutralizing any decisions he makes until the next election,
and ban his right to sign executive orders till he go.
for GOD’S SAKE, who will protect AMERICA,
read the laws of this land again and again, until you CONGRESS , SENAT, PENTAGONE, find a way,
IF I can see it, mean that it’s there, because I should be the last one to see it,

Similar thoughts from earlier this week:
The Military Strategy Of The Commander In Chief

They’re just misunderstood. We have scared them by being such bullies. If we just try harder they’ll like us! (moonbat mode off)

It’s like he’s a battered wife. Jeez.

Obama’s recent acts remind me of how a top acts just before it collapses.
It spins and sputters uncontrollably.
These gifts of our secrets (the Chevy Volt to the Chinese, these missiles to the Russians) are excellent examples.)
Obama has also done some other really weird stuff in other areas.
George Orwell has to come to mind when you learn that Obama’s EPA is now fining oil companies for not adding a fuel made from wood chips or the inedible parts of plants like corncobs…..that does not exist!
There is NO Technology on earth that can create this ”fuel.”
This year the oil companies will pay $6.8 million for not using this imaginary fuel.
Next year, barring a return to reality, the fine will be higher!

On the subjects of oil and Orwell, Obama likes to claim that he has allowed leases for energy exploration on public lands increased by 20% in 2011.
OK, technically true.
But only up 20% compared with his previous collapse in leasing in 2009 and 2010.
Here’s how even his ”up 20%” looks compared with the past 4 presidents’ amounts:
All three charts are educational.

Obama is counting on us being too slow to fact check his lies and obfuscations quickly enough.
Let’s surprise him.

Nan G
we will never be too slow with you around us, finding all his intents following his decisions and lies, exposing it for all to learn.

@bikemike: bikemike, I like your reasoning. Call what Obama is doing by its proper name: tresason!

Ah the screechers are out in full force with their pea brained jingoism over another non story. Lol!

that is a good link, thank you

Whose side is he on?

As I have mentioned before, when Obama said he wanted a civilian security force that is equally funded and as strong as the military, I knew which side he was on, and it ain’t ours. Everything he does or doesn’t do just confirms this.

If I had done that working for the Army, I would be tried for treason and would spend the rest of my life in jail. What makes this man above the law? When is someone in the congress and senate going to get a pair of balls and do something?

This would make a great question for the next SAEDA briefing we are forced to endure every year.

how about this one,
quite good for today cover up by the DEMOCRATS
right on our faces without blinking

@ilovebeeswarzone: Good memory, Bees!

yes TREASON it is, and it was then,
now what’s his name has visited RUSSIA,
so it must be done now,
