Stop All This Nobel Peace Prize Talk; It Only Leads to War!

From a piece I have running in the Washington Examiner. I hope you have a chance to take a look!

Another effort is afoot to get inside a president’s head with a Nobel Peace Prize. It worked out very poorly the last time, when the leftist Norwegians who dole out the award gave it to Barack Obama before he had done a single thing. And the continuing chatter about President Trump winning the prize can only lead to something very, very bad, like a dangerously flawed deal with North Korea. As Trump heads off to Singapore to negotiate with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, it’s time to silence such talk.

Preemptively awarding to Obama the Nobel Prize was not some quirky indulgence. It was a brilliant effort by Norwegian peaceniks to put themselves in charge of U.S. foreign policy. The Nobel Peace Prize committee in Oslo put the medal around Obama’s neck. And then they used it to tie his hands.

Netflix Becomes Obamaflix

Netflix is entering into a multi-year deal with the Obamas to create all kinds of content, effectively making the company a propaganda organ for the Obamas left-wing political agenda.

Netflix described the deal on Twitter, suggesting the alliance will be wide-ranging and deep. From the tweet:

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama have entered into a multi-year agreement to produce films and series for Netflix, potentially including scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries, and features.

Barack Obama released a statement portraying this as just a nice way to promote “inspiring” voices.

One of the simple joys of our time in public service was getting to meet so many fascinating people from all walks of life, and to help them share their experiences with a wider audience. That’s why Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.

Of course, those “inspiring” voices will range from left to far-left – for liberals, these are these are the only “inspiring” voices possible – and promote the Obamas’ ideology.

Netflix is not just biased, like much of the media. It is now actively promoting a point of view.

The Obama’s are not just some private citizens with a dream. They are a powerful former president and first lady seeking to mold America into a leftist paradise, which of course translates into hell on earth. And now they have a major media outlet at their disposal.

We’re already seeing some of this.

Expect more of it. Netflix is not a neutral media platform anymore.

Obamas Sign Multi-Year Deal with Netflix

According to CNN:

The Obamas said Monday that they want to harness “the power of storytelling” to promote common values.

“We hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world,” Barack Obama said in a statement.

“Netflix’s unparalleled service is a natural fit for the kinds of stories we want to share, and we look forward to starting this exciting new partnership,” Michelle Obama added.

The Obamas now need to hire a team of producers. They have set up a company called Higher Ground Productions “as the entity under which they will produce content for Netflix,” Netflix said.

I had already canceled my subscription, but I’m going to do it again just to make sure.

Hillary Clinton on Iran Deal Withdrawal: “Our Credibility is Shot”

Actually, no. Hillary Clinton complained Wednesday that nobody’s going to trust the United States anymore now that President Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal.

Trump’s Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital HELPS Mideast Peace

That’s right. All the conventional, in-the-box thinking you’re hearing about how President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – which, de facto, it already is – and move the embassy there actually increases to prospects for an eventual negotiated settlement between the Israelis and Palestinians. Even supporters of the move who… Continue Reading

Obama Interior Secretaries Spent $1M on Non-Commercial Travel

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is under fire for spending some $73,000 over the first eight months of the Trump administration on non-commercial travel. That actually puts him below the pace of such spending by Barack Obama’s Interior Secretaries, who spent about $1 million over seven years. So why didn’t we hear about it then? Because… Continue Reading

Pence to North Korea: “The Era of Strategic Patience is Over”

It is. It has to be. There are certain bottom lines to U.S. foreign policy that cannot be altered or avoided. One is that a North Korean regime with nuclear weapons that can hit the United States is an intolerable, existential threat that must be prevented at any cost. Vice President Mike Pence Monday travelled… Continue Reading
