After more than a decade of fighting Islamic terrorists The United States is now focusing on on the potential of military conflict with China or Russia, if not both.

Current and former Western powers has NATO reconsidering strategic assumptions and instead they are considering both conventional and non-conventional as well as nuclear war scenarios. This has resulted from the sudden aggressive nature of both China and Russia over the past year, which has brought on a more concern as officials in washington consider situations which might force the hand of The United States, thus drawing them into a military confrontation with either if not both of these super powers.

China’s claim to territory off the cost of Japan, and their claims of ownership of almost if not all of the China Sea, has also brought on protests from Viet Nam as well as the Philippians. Couple this with Russia’s actions in the Ukraine and China’s aggression in the South China Sea, and one can see where the perfect formula for military confrontation is fast developing.

Now, consider the latest development out of the Obama administration. The prisoner exchange for an american service man held in Afghanistan and trading off some of the most notorious prisoners held by the US. This has brought on the aire of both sides of the aisle because they were not actually consulted until after the fact. Congress has again and again refused the release of these specific captives. This time around the president consulted Congress after the fact. It turns out that the American exchanged might actually have gon AWOL, angry over Us policy in the Mid-East, and just walked away. As US military personnel searched for him, several lost their lives in fire fights giving their lives in the quest to gain a possible traitors freedom. It is not a good situation, because both Republicans and democrats are up in arms over this one, charging President Obama with endangering the security of as well as the safety of the United States, and its citizens. Others are charging blatant willful violations of the Constitution, as well as possible Federal Law violations. Impeachment is just under the surface now with what has so far been a gutless Congress.

It is rumored that several aides cautioned the president over this deal. It is also rumored that the White House itself is in an up roar over this one. Aides just feel that this President pays no attention to their counsel, does as he wants, and is engaging in a quest for a foreign policy that is not and never would be in the best interest of the people of the United States.

His apologetic attitude toward Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other mid east countries, is seen as weakness. That has led to the hostile behavior of both China and Russia who have said “In your face”, to the United States after they protested their action. They figure the US will do nothing because they can’t do anything. Besides, it is obvious that they figure that in a real live crisis scenario, this president wouldn’t know what to do anyway. They are probably right. 

Now the aire of the American people is coming to the surface, angered at the arrogance and won-ton disregard of this President. Americans are seeing now the mistake they made of re-electing this man President. apparently Mr. Obama saw his re-election as a mandate, which it was not. 

I think that there is a growing realization that the very security of this nation might be at stake. We are entering a very serious phase of this nation. Our freedom and all that we have stood for is on the table, and this President thinks that he can change the policy and direction of this country, despite the will of the people with the stroke of a pen. He has and continues to abuse Executive privilege, and the powers of the President, and Congress is just as guilty because they permitted him to do it. Their lack of action has resulted in serious compromises in American national security.

That is why it is now time for every american to look up from their morning coffee, and realize the situation that we are in. it is time to say ENOUGH. it is time for our voice to be heard by Congress. it is time for Congress to step up, step out and say that’s it, enough is enough, and put the brakes on this administration. We, the people need to re-claim our country. We the people need to step up and say we want this administration to step back and conduct itself as the nation we once knew. We the people need to tell Congress that this president has violated the trust of the people and we the people demand articles of impeachment on the grounds that this President has overstepped his authority as presented in the Constitution.

It should be noted that several noted authors and constitutional scholars have indicated that this president could be impeached for his actions that were not truly the powers of the executive branch.

So now it has come to this. Our president has presented our country as some sorry sad sack nation, to the powers of the world. The Chinese and Russians are now grabbing up whatever they want, knowing the US will bark, but do nothing in the end.

Now with the threat of military confrontation, a weak foreign policy, and an administration gone rogue, the question is what will the american people do?

God help us. Pray for America.



I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
