The Rosett Report

Department of Peace for Our Time

November 16th, 2013 - 11:27 pm

And yet, there it is — a report that the State Department hopes to woo Russia by answering the Kremlin’s insults and power-and-influence grabs with an invitation to come on in and set up GPS monitor stations for Roscosmos on U.S. soil; never mind the worries of the CIA and Defense Department. I’m not questioning the reporting in this article; in context there is every reason to believe that the reporters are accurately providing information about State Department policy. It’s the policy itself that makes no sense, at least not if the aim here is to protect U.S. interests and national security.

But there’s a lot going on right now that in terms of actually protecting the U.S. makes zero sense. The endless, amnesiac and oh so flexible “reset” with Russia is consistent with the State Department’s zeal, and for that matter, the president’s, to ensure that no new sanctions are imposed on Iran, lest any flexing of U.S. muscle might wreck the chances for a nuclear deal at the talks now scheduled to resume Nov. 20 in Geneva. Call it pre-existing appeasement. Nor are these independent matters. In Tehran, in Beijing, in Pyongyang and beyond, policy and military elites are reading that article in the New York Times, and drawing their own conclusions about just how thoroughly the U.S. administration will prostrate itself to appease despotic regimes that deride, oppose and threaten America and its allies. This is a policy far removed from the ways of the real world, in which, 26 years ago, to spectacular effect in the cause of peace, President Reagan went to West Berlin and commanded Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev: “Tear down this wall.” Instead, buying deals for our diplomats today at the cost of proliferating threats tomorrow, we are tripping step by step down the trail of “Peace for our time.”

Well, at least give the Clown Prince credit for consistency.

Domestic affairs, foreign affairs, social issues, economic issues, political issues...without fail, everything that he does undermines the United States of America.

Veteran Timelapse Transformation

Jim Wolf is a United States Army Veteran who is homeless and agreed to participate in this Veteran Timelapse Transformation as a first step in changing his life for the better. The video’s message isn’t that a simple makeover is going to solve Jim’s years of addiction and poverty but is just a first step towards recovery. In our society people are judged by how they look, rightly or wrongly, so even though I know highly successful Veterans who’s hair looks worse than Jim’s I hope this helps him. Music is “Take Me To A Place” and I hope the place that Jim ends up in is better than where he’s been.

Of course, Obama needs flexibility. That's how he puts his head up his as$ --
so he can lead from behind.

The MSM is even more 'flexible' than Obama. After all, it has to bend over backwards to cover his ass.

As Putin said to me the other day:
"Every time I see this bama bimbo, I laugh. He thinks he knows what Communism is. Ha. Ha. Ha. I laugh at him."

Thank you for writing. I am seriously doubting more all the time that this administration's intent is to protect US interests and national security. How can they do it wrong nearly every step of the way? Even a fool would have to do the right thing a lot more often. I am very, very sorry for my children and their generation.

If we hanged every traitor at Foggy Bottom, we would need a domestic hemp industry to supply enough rope.

In the modern age of instant global communications, we should cut State by 90% and stop sending Ambassadors to wine and dine every tinpot dictator in the world.

For the State Department, permitting Russia to build the stations would help mend the Obama administration’s relationship with the government of President Vladimir V. Putin…

State has a long, tawdry history of trading American interests for easy political wins. They behave as if American business, law, and even security is a Department resource reserved for their goals and convenience.

It’s time to consider whether State should be shut down altogether, the consulate network replaced by no nonsense military officers in the field. All the Staties from Princeton, Columbia and Harvard could find jobs as rocket scientists, the job they originally passed up in their desire to “serve” the nation. Serve up, that is.
