Crash Landings: ObamaAir and ObamaCare

Written by Gary North on July 4, 2013

Someone very high in Obama’s administration persuaded four European governments to deny air space to the President of Bolivia. This forced the pilot to land in Vienna.

Then the Austrian government sent inspectors to search the plane. The Deputy Chancellor announced to reporters that no one who was not a Bolivian citizen was on board. This meant that the plane had been forced to land in Austria over suspicions that Edward Snowden might have been inside.

So far, five nations have exposed themselves as toadies of the Obama administration: Italy, Portugal, France, Spain, and Austria. Toadying to the USA is always bad for domestic politics. The French government is now in full back-pedaling mode. It has announced that it was all an administrative mistake. It was, indeed: an Obama administrative mistake.

Morales landed in Bolivia to a hero’s welcome. A crowd assembled to cheer him.

Bolivia’s representative to the United Nations said: “We have no doubt that it was an order from the White House. By no means should a diplomatic plane with the president be diverted from its route and forced to land in another country.”

Across Latin America, there is sincere outrage. This was a deliberate slight of a national leader. This is the biggest setback in Latin American relations that any American President has had in over half a century. Let’s see John Kerry put this back together.

The White House has stonewalled. It has declined to comment on the Bolivian allegations. This is a classic sign of total paralysis at the top. When the feckless White House spokesman Jay Carney has nothing to say, we can sure that they are in damage-control mode. As I wrote last week, it is Edward Snowden vs. Jay Carney. Snowden keeps winning.

Simultaneously, the Obama administration announced that Obamacare is not ready. It said that that the employer mandate aspect of the law will not be enforced until 2015. This is five years after he signed it into law. It is also an illegal act. The law mandated January 1, 2014 as the date it was to go into effect.

What is really going on here? The health exchange provision is unenforceable. There is no functioning computer program to implement it. So, the administration is stuck.

The Obama administration is keeping alive the tradition of the Keystone Cops.

    ObamaCare may very well be the straw that breaks the camel's back. All I can say to that is…


  2. Dan StPeter says:

    Wow…'the French government is in now in full back-paddling mode'…who would have thunk it?

  3. John Whittington says:

    The Keystone Cop looses again!!!

  4. The Iceman says:

    If the Obummer administration was not so corrupt, a whistle blower could go to the Atty Gen. (another crooked O'Bummer nominee) Make a deal with this guy and get it over with. There is no proof he gave anything to the Russians or Chinese.

  5. dman_99004 says:

    In another example of its arrogance, the Obama administration bullies several countries into acting as 'toadies of the Obama administration: Italy, Portugal, France, Spain, and Austria' in its effort to capture Edward Snowden. Like most everything else the Obama administration has done, it was a miserable failure and only lead to those that participated being exposed and embarrassed.

  6. mrsgunnut10 says:

    Is Obamass a King, Monarch, Premier, or a just plain Idiot. Why would he be stupid enough to imbelish five (5) Countries to refuse landing a Plane that carried another Country's President?? I guess this question answer's itself, when you think about how egotiscal Obamass really is, too bad "Lock Jaw" Carney got tied up in this Fiasco, will Carney ever learn???? Thank you for your time.

  7. jaybird says:

    Has Obuma pissed off "all" the countries yet? Maybe he will soon find out that he is not the King of the US soon. He just needs to upset our military a little more and maybe they will do what the Egyption military did to Moursi.

  8. obama is trying to start a WAR with Bolivia!

    Note: I do not capitalize O'DumDum's name, because I DO NOT respect this fool!

  9. D

  10. Neither do I and I spell it ovomit and he does make me sick. Impeach the POS,

  11. The embassy spying (aspects of which first leaked by Manning and now Snowden), the revocation of Snowden’s passport and now this just proves that our lying gubmint has NO class. I am embarassed. I will never ever again work in a job requiring a security clearance and furthermore will not lend my competence to the advancement of that cancer in Washington DC. My country is not my government. Snowden is a hero,

  12. Run Eddie Run!

    Hopefully, Europe and South America realize that they have just been made to look extremely " foolish, weak and without pride" by the American mafia in D. C.

  13. WatchTheBirdie says:

    You are all missing the point regarding Obamacare. This monstrosity was NEVER expected to see the light of day in ANY form. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE …. and the prize is SINGLE PAYOR TOTAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF HEALTHCARE IN AMERICA. They have been saying this for years, so why isn't anyone listening? These are classic mafia tactics. Create a problem and then put yourself out there as the only solution. When they defraud the 2014 election they will have the Executive, House and Senate. And the Supreme Court. WAKE UP. This is about totalitarian tyranny, not Obamacare. WAKE UP!!!!

  14. A long time ago Dr. North said that Obama's role was to "hurt Progressives". If Dr. North is right Mr. Obama is doing a wonderful job.

    The Expedient Thinking of the Progressives continues to work on the behalf of everyone who doesn't cotten to their childish world view and their meddling. Ie, it's "Amateur Hour" at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

  15. They don't need to "defraud" any elections. They steal them in the light of day and nobody does a thing about it.

  16. Civilian control of the US Military has been one of the bedrocks of our Republic. Even incompetent civilians like Obama.

    America survived a dozen years of "the New Deal". We'll survive Obama.

    Heck, at the rate that Obama, Cuomo, and others of their ilk are making an absolute mess of things we might not see a Progressive executive for another generation.

  17. Obama, the little brained wannabe Hitler and dictator!

  18. The French are a proud people. They do not want to be toadies of anyone.

    Once again, expediency at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave shows that the Amateurs are at the helm.

  19. Not an amateur, an evil minded bigot and racist and wannabe dictator!

  20. Terry McGreor says:

    You are correct my friend. The only solution appears to be the answer our forefathers came up with to break free from an over reaching government. We desperately need what our forefathers fought and died for restored. May God have mercy and restore our nation.

  21. Controse says:

    Always refer to him as Oboutme. It says it all.

  22. Keep pandering to the uninformed, Gary, it’s really suiting you.

    Businesses wanted an extension to the Jan 1, 2014 implementation date so they could fully comply, because right now the time table is supposedly too short. It’s bullshit, but they asked, and they received. Get over it.

    The ignorance on this forum is astounding, and your hillbilly nicknames for the President are tired and boring.

  23. Victor Barney says:

    America, don't "you" ALL just love "rogue" scholars as is our current President elected by the more verbally-elite sex alone(females) to destroy U.S. Anglo-Saxons & the Blacks that have been called to our Hebrew-Inspired Creator "Yahweh" through his only begotten SON & our SAVIOR & HIGH PRIEST "YAHSHUA," meaning in Hebrew "Yahweh means salvation" because as written at least 3 times(Zeph. 3;9, Acts 26:14, 1 Cor. 4:6) & the last two times even saying so in GREEK, YOU BETTER "WAKE-UP" because the time of Lucifer is now quickly coming to a close! Very possibly even beginning this coming October 5th, which is the correct date for the Annual Feast of Trumpets(War). P.S. Anyone wishing truth I strongly encourage you to check-out Elder Gary Miller at www:info@icyahweh.org; located in Pocohonas, Ark. Elder Miller also by profession, is a Physics Instructor, the true Science! Remember also as written: PROVE ALL THINGS AS COMMANDED BY 2 PETER 1:20!

  24. exbuckeye says:

    He told this country exactly what kind of "donkey" he was going to be back in 2007 and 2008, long before the election.
    The vast majority of unwashed liberals and welfare recipients didnt listen.
    And they refused to listen to those of us who DID listen to him!!!

  25. john ringo says:

    You really aren’t very bright are you?

  26. Then do not come to this forum….. Simple solution. Some things posted here I dont agree with either, but everybody has the right so far as to their opinion. And if at some point I completely disagree with whats here I will just "change the channels" so to speak. I'm sure someone would tell me if I posted what you did to "Get over it or move on…..

  27. Victor Barney says:

    REMEMBER: like 74% of out population is made up of "GATHERER'S" or people living ONLY to be given things from others. I'm talking specifically about our WOMEN through their OWN BIOLOGY, unless they are called-OUT of it & the same is true of all blacks! WATCH! Especially October 5th, 2013, which is the correct date for the next FEAST OF TRUMPETS(WAR)!

  28. drgizmorgr77 says:

    not his name any way we have no idea who this guy is … not even a valid SSN

  29. drgizmorgr77 says:

    oh really you are the idiot GK!

  30. LittleMoose says:

    The White House is in complete melt down. If it wasn't for the lame stream media, Obama would have been gone a long time ago.

  31. Boomer8 says:

    the State Department and the Federal Reserve both have assassins working for them, and they want to make a big deal out of Snowden!! How ridiculous!!
    Reminds me of Morsi being desperate to hold onto his (temporary) power!!

  32. Amateur? no.
    Well thought out destruction of America!

  33. Evo Morales says that obastard should be deprived of his piss prize. There is your reason for this outrageous display of boorishness and bad manners.

  34. gvhparkridge says:

    Can you believe it takes Egypt to destroy the brotherhood and Obama….

  35. Everhen says:

    I haven't either, since 2008. Same reason—NO RESPECT FOR THE LYING MUSLIM, obuma!!

  36. odumbass is king of the one world gov. don't ya know.

  37. Sounds like you're in lockstep (or is that a lip-lock?) with the Usurper in Chief. You seem to have the same putrid air about you as does the corrupt administration. Did I understand your comment correctly?

  38. more coolaid for you sir if you are a sir
    oreo has to go

  39. mrsgunnut10 says:

    Eli, that is the reason I spell his name "Obamass" . He was an original Dumb Ass when he was first "elected" (if you can say elected), either way, by hook or crook he is filling the seat and I don't respect him either. We all know he cannot be trusted and if he hasn't pissed off all of the Foreign Countries so far, just wait a while and he will. TSgt., USAF Retired.
