UN.g – whoops! I mean AMERICA.gov
When you log onto the website www.america.gov you might be a bit surprised at what you see. I must confess that before Barry and the Obamanites came to power I rarely looked into government websites. Now I make it a habit.
The website puts forth the following message of why the site exists “This site delivers information about current U.S. foreign policy and about American life and culture. It is produced by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Information Programs. Links to other Internet sites should not be construed as an endorsement of the views contained therein.” OK, sounds simple enough. My personal thoughts are that if it is “AMERICA”.gov then it should be about America. Talk about the culture and heritage, our great beauty of the nation, as well as promote each of the states and what residency in this great nation can offer. Throw in a little foreign policy.
However, my idea of what the use of the name should be and what this site actually promotes are two different topics.
If you go there on any day, it becomes clear that this site is devoted to Obama’s Foreign Policy and capitulation to the UN and the rest of the world that is jealous of the US. Climate Change is one of 3 key topics rotating at the top of the site. I would have thought the scandal in 2009 in Copenhagen would have been enough to derail this train, but this Administration is chugging along like it never happened. Here is a good reminder of the scam world scientists in bed with the loons have been cooking: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/christopherbooker/6679082/Climate-change-this-is-the-worst-scientific-scandal-of-our-generation.html.
There is a tab for “American Life”, which one would hope would promote American Life. The first topic is US Government with breakdowns in the Freedom of Information Act, The Anatomy of a Jury, and how to contact the US Government at the click of a mouse. Wow, have I been living the wrong dream! There is a cultural tab that focuses on blacks, Native Americans, and Hispanics – as it should. However, a little background on those from Europe that discovered the nation and established it would not hurt either. The 3rd tab is on Education and Youth and the first topic is “Can Tolerance Be Taught”. You get the picture.
The rest of the site is pretty much right out of the UN Playbook on Global Appeasement. Are there some topics on the site I agree with – yes. Water needs, we always need research & development in science and space, etc. However, one of the tabs on Development shows Oprah Winfrey Still Loves School. Really? Who cares?
Oh, the US official policy is to rid the world of nukes. Nice idea Pollyanna, but Putin is feeling his commie roots again and is getting cozy with Chuckie Chavez down south. Do the words Missiles of October mean anything to this administration? Fifteen minutes to strike the heart of the US?
The site also has links to several other official US Government websites, such as www.usa.gov, the EPA, ICE, NASA, etc.
Just one bit of advice – read them on an empty stomach or you may have a negative reaction in your digestive system.
