Way back when they used to teach history in school, the real version, not the liberal's revisionist history where America is always the bad guy, i.e., the Texans forced the Mexican's hand by illegally seizing the Alamo, Santa Ana really just wanted to get along, Lenin was a gentle soul, the Japanese against the racist US, etc., Americans, as students, learned about this thingy called The Monroe Doctrine.

Monroe introduced this as US Policy on December 2, 1823. It stated that if European countries tried to colonize land or interfere with states in the Western Hemisphere, we, the USA, would be view that as an act of aggression requiring US intervention. Moreover, it also stated that the United States would not interfere with existing European colonies nor in the internal concerns of European countries. President Monroe first spoke about the doctrine during his seventh annual State of the Union Address to Congress. This doctrine became THE foreign policy of the United States and one of its longest-standing tenets. It has been invoked by presidents, Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, JFK, and Ronald Reagan. Indeed, it was Teddy Roosevelt who invoked military action in Latin America to stop the spread of European influence. (The Roosevelt Corollary)

The bottom line is that Monroe wanted to free the newly independent colonies or the soon-to-be independent colonies of Latin America from European control and meddling. The New World was separated from the Old World into separate spheres of influence. Since the implementation of the Monroe Doctrine, the Western Hemisphere was never again colonized nor was there any major attempt by a European power to control any nation in the Western Hemisphere. The Monroe Doctrine has stood the test of time.

That is, until the election of a simpering appeasing neophyte so incompetent and so ready to sacrifice American interests at the altar of marxism, and so ready to sell us out, that it's borderline treason.

You see my friends, Ronaldus Magnum hit the commies at Grenada and routed their little power grab there. and he supplied the Contras (libs hate that) much as the Communist Bloc supplied the North Vietnamese against us (libs loved that), invoking the Monroe Doctrine. JFK, the liberal's wonder boy, even stated in 1962:

"The Monroe Doctrine means what it has meant since President Monroe and John Quincy Adams enunciated it, and that is that we would oppose a foreign power extending its power to the Western Hemisphere, and that is why we oppose what is happening in Cuba today. That is why we have cut off our trade. That is why we worked in the OAS and in other ways to isolate the Communist menace in Cuba. That is why we will continue to give a good deal of our effort and attention to it."

But now we have the weak-kneed man-child in office, more adept at bowing to foreign potentates than in standing tall for America. Indeed, the boy-child, what with his limp-wristed pitching arm, is more adept at greasing up and bending over for the enemies of America, while snubbing our long-standing allies.

Unrepentent communist Vladimir Putin visited his homey Hugo Chavez in Venezuela to cement a defense and energy partnership. He did it at the expense of American prestige and influence in Latin America whihc not only trod on the Monroe Doctrine but it clearly showed the weakness of the Obummer Administration, or is it the treason of the Obummer Administration, that works to sabotage America's standing in the world?
What did Putin get?

1. He got the right to develop Venezuela's Hunin-6 field. (Currently the world's largest oil deposit.)

2. Russian companies would build refineries and handed Chavez a $1 billion "entry fee."

3. Russia would sell more than $5 billion in arms to Venezuela.

4. Russia would build a Bolivian aircraft refueling stop (basically a Russian military base) smack dab in the middle of South America.

Putin plays hardball folks and the weenie we have in the White House, more concerned with oppressing the American people instead of leading them and embracing the greatness of America, plays softball, especially with the throwing arm HE has! Putin took the measure of one Barry Obummer and found him lacking and wanting. American leadership is in the hands of a marxist idiot so Putin took the big Red step forward and Barry stood there, sucking his thumb, and looking stupid.


We have two staunch allies in the region, Colombia and Chile. Now Chavez will have the wherewithal to threaten them, as Saddam Hussein (not related to Barack Hussein), was able to do in the Middle East. It causes instability, fear, and danger, especially as the fence-sitters waver. In addition, since liberals forbid us to drill for the massive pools of oil under our soil and offshore, Russian control of the largest pool of oil in the world, will hamper us domestically and of course, militarily. Putin KNOWS that liberals and their enviro-nazis allies will do everything to keep us from drilling for oil inshore and offshore. Hell, the man-child is more concerned with signing AWAY our sovereignty with L.O.S.T. at the UN than in strengthening our sovereignty.

Putin will control those refineries, deciding where the oil goes, how much is refined, tampering with production to raise prices, etc, so that Barry and his minion Stephen Chu will finally get their $8 a gallon gas and the American economy will grind to a halt, and Soros will have gotten his money's worth after buying Obummer.

Once again, the lack of common sense, the lack of guts, and the "kumbaya" mentality of liberals, especially the community organizer-in-chief in the White House puts our enemies in a position where they now have the opportunity weaken our strength and influence in our own backyard. It happened with FDR at Yalta, it happened with Truman in Korea, it happened with liberals and South Vietnam, it happened with Carter all over the world, it happened with BJ Bubba and global terrorism, and it is happening all over again with the Jug Eared Fool. Don't worry Americans, Barry just signed a nuclear treaty where we'll disarm and Putin can opt out of if he wants. The world is a dangerous place and with liberals running the show, it's even MORE dangerous. But hey, we got "free" healthcare.

No doubt that rumbling you hear is Monroe rolling over in his grave.


  1. GunnyG,
    He is nailing his own coffin shut. America WILL be in ICU for a while. But we WILL come back STRONG!

  2. What's even worse is that Obama claims there will be no retaliation if attacked.....

    No wonder Obama messed up when taking the oath. He lied under oath and uses the taxpayers money to further destroy this country.

    By the way, did you notice his 17 minute answer on higher taxes and healthcare, which actually didn't answer anything. I read a quote by a cop that mentioned that criminals tend to extend an answer when lying. Since he never answered the question, he either doesn't know what he's talking about, or he's lying.

  3. We are in a 747
    J. Fred Muggs is in the right seat;
    Bozo is in the left seat.

  4. BTW, could I ask you to link my TH blog?


  6. I have no doubt but it'll take YEARS to undo his idiocy.

  7. Eric,

    GREAT POST! I thought I was on the only one who noticed that! I have no doubt that Obama is a liar and traitor. It's just a matter of time until it all shakes out.

  8. Buck,

    You are indeed, a wordsmith!

    And they're both ASLEEP at the wheel.

  9. Nanna,

    Don't worry, help is on the way in 2012.

  10. GunnyG,
    So it takes years. It took 8 YEARS of Reagan to build an America SOOOO strong that it survived RINO 41 and took Billary Clinton-Rodham 8 years to tear down.

  11. Georgetwin,

    Indeed. I think that this time, the American people will FORCE Congress to maintain our military and be strong.

  12. What is really troubling is that he don't get it! Either that or he really is guilty of treason! As dumb as he is, I believe the later.

  13. Even Al Capone eventually made enough mistakes to get removed.
    And he was THE Boss of Chicago.

  14. PackRat:Al Capone wasen't black.

  15. As someone always asks:"Obama,what's not to like". What's not to like is ALL the above. Good post,Guns.

  16. Jim,

    I think that he gets it but that he doesn't give a damn. He RULES (in his mind) he doesn't GOVERN! Maybe he should have run for king of Kenya, he'd of been better off and so would we.

  17. Pack Rat,

    I'm not a harvard grad but I think that a good case for Obummer's impeachment could be made, especially with that nuke treaty he laid on us.

  18. Clyde,

    The only thing I like about Obama is when he'll be a distant and bad memory.

  19. FBO,

    There's only two ways to go here, Failure barracks hussien osamabinobama or FU Barry hussien osamabinobama

  20. Great post Gunny!
    I'm looking forward to November so that we can take control of the House and pick up seats in the Senate to attempt to check this traitor in the White House.
    Doesn't the Senate have to ratify this treaty w/ 60 votes? I don't think Obama will get the votes.
    As for Russia; as soon as we win back the WH in 2012, I would restart the missile defense system in Poland and Czech Republic.

  21. Gunny
    I would have said J Fred Muggs is in the left seat but I didn't want Al Sharpton, Jesse be da Jackson, Danny Glover and maybe Cecil De Mille starting a demonstration in front of my house, calling me a racist or something.
    So I put Bozo in the left seat.

  22. Good post Gunny!
    Sad pathetic response Ivan.
    You're free to not read Gunny's blog. You're also free to move to Venezuela and live in your socialist utopia. In a nice warm climate to boot.

    Watching Barry is like deja vu. Like I'm a senior in high school again, watching our national security being thrown out the window.

  23. Amen, Mr. G.
    I still cannot understand why people would choose to put their heads in the sand...Being an extreme leftist is sad business, being an ignorant one, not so much. They will only get it when they wake up and actually feel the oppression. They have been led to believe it is Utopia.

  24. rikdergis,

    You bring up a good point. I wonder IF he can get the votes and it'll be something to see the people's reaction if it gets Senate approval.

  25. beachmom,

    My cyberstalker Ivan is like a moth to flame here! haha. What's nice is I can delete his over the top bilgewater as I did this one. Some language is okay but f-bombs by a flaming libtard don't cut it.

    There is NO DOUBT that Bungler Barry is Carter version 2. But ask thyself, WHAT came after Carter? EIGHT YEARS of REAGAN.

  26. Nee,

    They have their heads inserted somewhere because they don't WANT to have to think or do. They have become fat and lazy and expect the rest of us to do the same. And they angry when we don't.

  27. Gunsel whined:
    >Some language is okay but f-bombs
    >by a flaming libtard don't cut it.

    Ooooh, tsk, tsk. Bad language hurts Gunny's ears. Must censor bad man.

    What a pantywaist -- as well as a racist traitor.

  28. At 8:09, Gunsel muttered:
    >WHAT came after Carter? EIGHT

    Eight years that historians will record as the second-worst federal administration the United States ever had, taking a back seat only to the George W. Bush fiasco.

    Reagan -- America's first wholly demented president.

    It is being written even as we speak.

  29. Once again Ivan went to DU for his talking points. Actually Reagan is #10 out of 44 as noted by C-span

    Wait and see. Obama makes me miss Carter.
