Nobel Appeasement Prize: “A Kick in the Leg,” Part II

October 9, 2009

 

The Next Step?

The Next Step?

This morning, the world awoke to the news that, once again, Barack Obama has been given an honor he has done nothing to earn. Norweigian officials announced today that President Obama, our community-organizer-in-chief, had won the Nobel Peace Prize .

There was a time when the award carried prestige and self-authenticating legitimacy. The committee awarded Teddy Roosevelt the 1906 Nobel Peace Prize, for instance, for brokering an end to the Russo-Japanese War. Obama’s non-feasance has become a Saturday Night Live joke. The award is the perfect capstone for a man who wrote two autobiographies before he had accomplished anything of significance, ran for U.S. Senate without any accomplishments in the state house, and ran for president without any accomplishements in the Senate. So far as president, his greatest foreign policy achivement is allowing Iran to continue developing nuclear weapons in peace. Salaam alaykum.

The award’s transparently political motivation has become increasingly obvious to all following its recipients. Obama joins such notables as a Marxist fraud, a racist who believes the AIDS virus was invented by white people, and (shudder) Jimmy Carter. At least Gunnar Berge, then-chair of the committee that awards the prize, admitted Jimmy Carter‘s 2002 award was intended as  “a kick in the leg” to President Bush. Berge elaborated, “It is clear that with the position that Carter has adopted in the question of Iraq, [the award] must be seen as a criticism of the policy that the current US administration has adopted in relation to Iraq,” he said. 

What is the logical conclusion of the committee awarding one of Bush’s predecessors and outspoken critics, then his successor and more frequent critic? That Obama — who was nominated after having been president for two weeks — is the stand-in candidate of the Euro-socialist Left, that he won an Affirmative Action prize for far-leftists.

The award’s sickening recent history proves as much…

The 2004 winner, Waangari Maathai, insisted white devils invented the AIDS virus “to wipe out the Black race.” David Horowitz exposed Rigoberta Menchu as a liar and fraud, who followed a long line of fellwo Marxists or their fellow travelers to the Nobel podium.  Even murderer Tookie Williams was nominated for the award. DiscoverTheNetworks’ outstanding entry about the Nobel Peace Prize  has much more. In light of those nominees, Obama is a hawkish centrist. But to be considered for the award, one has to be too far Left to defend the best interests of his own country.

This award is a powerful commentary on the deplorable state of the Nobel Prize — and our presidency.

    This organization has finally lost all credibility after giving the prize for promoting…peace to Arafat. Obama’s in good company now.
    The funniest thing is that those snobbish “holier than thou” commissioners of the Nobel prize don’t realize how irrelevant they are. Who pays attention to those silly prizes anymore?

    Can we get the specific names of the 5 Norwegian idiots who did this?

    They need to be called out, exposed, and called to account to explain their insane and obviously malicious (in terms of interfering with US domestic politics) decision.

    Meet the People Who Were Passed Over for Obama

    Sima Samar, women’s rights activist in Afghanistan: “With dogged persistence and at great personal risk, she kept her schools and clinics open in Afghanistan even during the most repressive days of the Taliban regime, whose laws prohibited the education of girls past the age of eight. When the Taliban fell, Samar returned to Kabul and accepted the post of Minister for Women’s Affairs.”

    Ingrid Betancourt: French-Colombian ex-hostage held for six years.

    “Dr. Denis Mukwege: Doctor, founder and head of Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo. He has dedicated his life to helping Congolese women and girls who are victims of gang rape and brutal sexual violence.”

    Handicap International and Cluster Munition Coalition: “These organizations are recognized for their consistently serious efforts to clean up cluster bombs, also known as land mines. Innocent civilians are regularly killed worldwide because the unseen bombs explode when stepped upon.”

    “Hu Jia, a human rights activist and an outspoken critic of the Chinese government, who was sentenced last year to a three-and-a-half-year prison term for ‘inciting subversion of state power.'”

    “Wei Jingsheng, who spent 17 years in Chinese prisons for urging reforms of China’s communist system. He now lives in the United States.”

    Why not award His Nothingness (Obama) the American and National League’s MVP and Cy Young Awards as well? He’s done nothing to deserve them either.

      And the Heisman Trophy, and the Stanley Cup,…

      How about a truly appropriate award–something that accurately reflects Obama’s accomplishments: The P.T. Barnum Award, for fooling some of the people all of the time, and most of the people some of the time.

      The Award should come with $1 million dollars in Monopoly money, and a trophy–a five-foot tall pile of horse apples, gilded in 14 karat gold.

    Sadly, this diminishes the prestige of the award for those deserving it in future years as well as the Nobel prize for outstanding work in other fields (Medicine & other sciences).

    A tale of two Barry’s: Barry Bonds, stoked on steroids, swung bats, broke Hank Aaron’s home run record and was awarded multiple MVP’s. Barry Bama, stoked on media steroids, slung crap, and was awarded a prize for doing nothing except hoisting the world’s largest petard.

    I believe Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass” speaks to this phenomenon. No rules, just floating coordinates…everybody wins the race…

    I anxiously waiting to see who Obama gives his $1.4 million prize to since he strongly believes in wealth redistribution. Possibly ACORN now that they have been exposed as the criminal organization they are and will be hurting for federal taxpayer dollars to spread their hatred of America shared by Obama (who would not have been rewarded by the other hate America-the Nobel committee-crowd if he hadn’t traveled the world apologizing for the country that has spent more money and blood in protecting the world than any other in history.)

      We really have to start following the money…….

      If I were in charge of “getting” this lying POS, the first thing I’d do is get an army of forensic accountants to do ful forensic audits of everyone even remotely connected to BHO or to ANY of his known friends and associates over the last 10 years…. With the kind of corruption that these guys are into, it impossible to believe that there hasn’t been at least some under the table kick backs & favors exchanged over the last 10 years…. Nobody can hide every little bit of evidence…. & greed always clouds judgment in the end….

      I have no doubt that a major team of smart accountants working with some state of the art hackers, could find where some of the bodies (& the cash deposits & wire transfers) are buried…

      Start with Rahm Emanuel… Rumor has it that he made about $16MM in the year prior to becoming WH COS… Check out his brother Ari who runs Endeavor, the huge Hollywood agency…. I’d surprised if he, or others close to Rahm & Barry isn’t a conduit…

      Common folks…. let’s smoke out these rats !

        Swemson,

        I’m not up for another whitewater, but based on the people & shady connections to Obama already uncovered (Wright, Ayers, Jones et al)
        I don’t think he and his people were nearly as brilliant at covering up their “mistakes/miscalculations”as the Clintons succeeded in doing.

        Additionally, the Clinton’s “people” went to great lengths at their own peril (even prison) to provide them cover; we’ll see how strong the Obama bonds are.

        Hey, how ’bout them Yankees

          JULIE;

          You may well be right…

          If anything does them in, it will probably be their own arrogance… However in this instance, you can be sure that as soon as he got to the point where he knew that he actually had a chance to go all the way, you can bet anything that he started to thoroughly cover his tracks..

          But desperate people do desperate things, and we’re for damned sure desperate right now.. & we can’t afford to leave any possibility unchecked…

      Yes, it could be donated to the Bertha Lewis Legal Defense Fund.

    Unmerited honors have followed this man throughout his life…He became editor of the Law Review when he was in law school. I remember reading that he was the only editor who never published an article during his tenure.
    He starts projects but has difficulty finishing…he depends on others to do that…
    Sounds like A.D.D. …

    I’ve just ordered (it’s hard to find!) Obamanutz: A Cult Leader Took Over the White House, by Joy Tiz. Can’t wait to receive this book, after hearing a bit of a radio interview with her. “Drunk the Cool-Aid,” the mainstream Press in collusion, willful disregard for the truth or logic by the public–classic cult behavior. Explains a lot. Only wish I had heard the whole interview, or could find the book easier. Fox =”intervention.”

    Who nominated him?

    The Nobel Prize has become as irrelevant as the MGMSM that garnered the prize for Obomber. The MGMSM has become a ongoing train wreck that people pay attention to only to observe what asinine hooey the MGMSM comes up with next! The MGMSM got their ‘boy’ elected, now the insignificant Nobel prize, what next? Are they going to credit Obomber with the recent news that global warming is ‘receding’!
