Is our muslim president siding with Boko Haram in Nigeria? March 27, 2015

I’m sure I’ll attract the ire of at least one paid agent of Obama’s perpetual campaign organization OFA, but the allegations below are absolutely devastating, and so revealing.  I’m sorry, what else does this guy have to do before people will accept that he is either a practicing muslim, or has the most sympathetic view possible?

Lots of claims below.  Most of which are highly disturbing:

According to Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan, more than 13,000 people have been killed in the Boko Haram insurgency since 2009. Some estimates put the carnage as high as 17,000 deaths.

Between July 2013 and June 2014 alone, an estimated 7,000 people  died in incidents related to the insurgency. Boko Haram –  which means “Western education is forbidden” – recently pledged allegiance to ISIS.……

…..Clearly, a more serious response than  #BringBackOurGirls was needed to combat the growing menace – but the United States all but abandoned their African ally.  Not only did the Obama Regime refused to sell Nigeria the arms it needed to fight Boko Haram, it blocked other Western allies from helping them, too.

Back in January, the Jerusalem Post reported that Obama refused to allow “the resale of US-made military helicopters by Israel to the Nigerian government for its fight against Boko Haram last summer.”

Via James Simpson of AIM:

 The administration also denied Nigeria intelligence on Boko Haram from drones operating in the area. While Boko Haram was kidnapping school girls, the U.S. cut petroleum purchases from Nigeria to zero, plunging the nation’s economy into turmoil and raising concerns about its ability to fund its battle against the terrorists. Nigeria responded by cancelling a military training agreement between the two countries.

What do you suppose was behind the Obama Regime’s abject refusal to help this ally fight these terrorists?

Would you believe that there’s a presidential election coming up in Nigeria, and Obama’s favored Muslim candidate is in a tight race against the Christian President Goodluck Jonathan?

And would you further believe that a political consulting group founded by Obama confidante David Axelrod is assisting that candidate – Retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari – who hails from Muslim-dominated northern Nigeria from whence Boko Haram was spawned?

Thanks to the lack of cooperation and assistance from the United States, the Jonathan government has been failing miserably at beating back the terrorist scourge, with the president looking weak and ineffectual. [Now there may be some valid reasons to be careful in arming the Nigerian government, such as concern over corruption and fears the weapons may simply fall into the hands of the muslims through some treachery.  However, there are certainly loyal Christian/Catholic militias that could be supported. There is more below that bears on all this.]

Desperate, the government finally turned to Russia, China and the black market to obtain the much needed arms……

….According to an anti-Buhari Nigerian blogger writing in the Western Post:

In the last year, Nigeria sought aid from the White House for many initiatives, including the fight against Boko Haram.

The Obama administration refused to do anything but pay lip service to Nigeria’s requests. However, it used public and private channels to internationally magnify every failure Nigeria’s government experienced. 

In the last year, since the involvement of Axelrod’s firm, relations between the two nations have significantly deteriorated, with the US refusing to sell arms to Nigeria, a significant reduction in the purchase of Nigeria’s oil, and the cancellation of a military training agreement between Nigeria and the USA. [The oil could be due to the growth of fracking, now under threat due to the Saudi’s flooding the market.  But cancelling regular training that is always ongoing between the US and various relatively friendly governments, and even more, denying intelligence to the Nigerian government of Boko Haram activities, including feeds from UAVs and satellites, indicates something more than just concern over arms diversions. To me it clearly shows an agenda at work, an attempt to deeply meddle in the interior affairs of a relatively friendly government, and to show favoritism to the muslim candidate]

In turn, the Buhari-led Nigerian opposition used the U.S. government’s position as validation for their claim that the Nigerian government was a failure. [And so I have to wonder how many claims we’ve heard of terrible corruption and incompetence we’ve heard of the Nigerian government are really true, or whether this is all just White House/leftist media spin to insure Obama gets the outcome he wants, a muslim government in a majority-Christian (and mostly Catholic) nation?]

To top it off, Simpson reports that Secretary of State John Kerry “made a mockery of the administration’s pretext by hinting in January meetings with both Jonathan and Buhari that the Obama administration might allow weapon sales after the election.”

If the U.S. was so concerned about human rights violations, how could a mere election change that? Given the perception that Buhari has Obama’s implicit support, this sends an unmistakable message.

The administration also rationalized its decision to cut purchases of Nigerian oil by claiming that output from domestic oil fracking has reduced America’s dependence on foreign oil. But that begs the question: why have U.S. oil imports from other nations increased at the same time? Nigeria was formerly among America’s top five oil supplying countries, and America its largest customer. Nigeria relies on oil revenues for 70 percent of its budget. America’s decision to look elsewhere has been catastrophic for Nigeria’s economy. [Hmmm…….not entirely sure about that.  There is a tendency to want to purchase from Western Hemisphere sources. Usually the top five include Canada, Mexico, and Brazil.  Still, even without the oil allegation, these are extremely damning revelations for Obama]

After turning to Russia and China to obtain arms, Nigeria was able to fight aggressively and on the offensive against Boko Haram.

They have retaken 40 towns previously occupied by the group and killed at least 500 of the terrorists.

At least 13,000 civilians dead in Nigeria since 2009 and the US looks the other way because Obama wants to put a progressive Muslim in power.

This article discusses this further Obama scandal in detail.  It is amazing the degree to which we are kept in the dark by the leftist Obama-apologist media.  Enormous scandals of huge international significance are consigned to the memory hole in order to protect Obama and serve his agenda.  If this story is even only true in part, it should be an incredible scandal.  Not that we need another one with this stuttering cluster@$%! of a malignant muslim traitor.

If this Republic fails, or has already, the “watchdog” media bears an enormous share of the blame, and perhaps should be considered as the formal, direct cause.  People have elected amoral monsters like Obama because the media carefully sells a completely false image.  Then again, maybe 50%+1 of people no longer even care about such things.  It’s very tempting to just stand back and watch the collapse.

And the saddest thing is, almost certainly well over half the bishops and priests of this country voted for this guy twice and are still totally on board with him!  As always, for the progressive, leftism is the real religion and anything else is just a sidelight.

You may well be right, but there could be something involved here that we don’t know. Of course, I heartily subscribe to the idea that virtually everything the president does comes from evil motives.

Obama is not a Muslim.

He’s a garden variety secular agnostic of the sort you find populating most of the Ivy Leagues.

I think what’s up here is ultimately a combination of disenchantment with the corruption and ineffectiveness of Jonathan’s government (which truth to tell has been often AWOL in the fight against Boko Haram), and appeasement, just as we see in the administration’s policy in other parts of the Middle East – the calculation that militant Islam will be undercut if they’re given some measure of power. In this respect, it may be analogous to our role in bringing the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt, as well as its analog in Tunisia.

Of course, as well know, that didn’t work out so well.

In any case, why they imagine that Buhari – who already had an ugly track record in power – would be any more effective or any less corrupt, and no less bloody, is a mystery to me.

I hate to consider the possibility that this is actually true, but I must say that I’ve heard far more evidence to convince me, lately, that he IS, in fact, a Muslim, or, as Tantum says, as sympathetic as possible. And, this is NOT a new development.

He has been pro-Islam since the beginning of his public life, as chronicled in the link above and at least one book by the same author.

Tantum, your post about Nigeria sounds as if it is the African version of what Caroline Glick wrote about Israel:

It is a common mistake to think that any US President is master of his own foreign policy. Obama is just much less adept at disguising the true foreign policy intentions that are decided for him.

Lord, have Mercy!

As a faithful Catholic, this is an embarrassing post to read on a “Catholic” blog.

What is there to say, there does not seem to be enough courageous Americans to fight back what is becomming of our country.

9. bella - March 29, 2015

I don’t even give Obama an agnostic label, he is an atheist in my opinion. And I wholeheartedly agree with Observer he takes his orders.

Back in January, the Jerusalem Post reported that Obama refused to allow “the resale of US-made military helicopters by Israel to the Nigerian government for its fight against Boko Haram last summer.”

One news source stated that the ¨drones bought by Nigeria from Israel to combat B.H. DO NOT WORK.¨ Not everything is black and white. Boko Haram is not Muslim. President did the correct thing.
