In naming Barack Obama as the 2009 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize
,the Nobel committee strikes again by selecting a Left-wing ideologue as the one to be awarded the honor. We have come to expect nothing less from this stellar panel of totally objective and non-partisan advocates for peace, which certainly would never allow politics or ideology to influence their decisions whatsoever.
The Nobel Committee certainly has no interest in promoting and rewarding movements with a purely ideological, political objective rather than the sole purpose of working toward peace using all of the prudent means necessary.
Perhaps this is the reason the Committee awarded its prize in 2007 to the International Panel on Climate Change, one of the world's most ardent proponents of the 'man-made global warming' myth, along with all of the concomitant proposals for limitations and restrictions on human behavior. (See the entire list of recipients HERE
Of course, the Nobel Committee totally ignored the hundreds of prominent world scientists and climatologists
who have totally debunked the theory that human activity is the primary driving force behind climate change.
Instead, the Committee totally swallowed hook, line, and sinker the Al Gore propaganda concerning the dire nature of human activity in trashing the planet, and that if humans fail to totally change their behavior and allow government to restrict them, we may only have five years left as the human species.
A judge in Britain, incensed by the fact that Al Gore's film was going to be shown in British schools, issued a ruling that required a disclaimer at the beginning of the movie, indicating that what they were about to see and hear is only a theory and not 'settled science' based upon absolute, observable fact.
Oh, and by the way, the very same year, 2007, that the wildly partisan International Panel on Climate Change was awarded the peace prize, Al Gore himself was named as a co-recipient of that honor.
That, in itself, speaks volumes.
How about we take a look at some of the other recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize through the years, shall we? This should also give astute readers a clue as to the ulterior motives behind the ideologically-driven Nobel Committee: Yasser Arafat (1994), Kofi Annan (2001), Jimmy Carter (2002).
My, what an elite group of highly admirable examples of intellectual honesty and impartiality in affirming many various ways to arrive at 'peace.'
One has to wonder why Reagan was never awarded the prize. After all, the military buildup in the U.S. that eventually led to the economic collapse of the Soviet Union and the tearing down of the Berlin Wall, which for 40 years had been a symbol of Communist aggression and oppression, was no small feat.
One cannot argue that the world was not infinitely 'safer' for peace after Reagan's policies took effect.
Oh, but I forgot, Reagan was the penultimate 'war-monger' in the minds of the cultural and intellectual elite.
In order for Barack Obama to receive the Nobel Prize at this time, that means he had to have been nominated back in February, barely one month into office. What, exactly, did Obama do in one month to merit such a noteworthy honor?
Is it that he snubbed one of our closest allies--Israel? Is it that he cozied up to the most violent people on earth--the leaders of state sponsors of terror, such as Hamas, Hizbollah, and the 'Palestinian authority'? Or perhaps it was because he offered a hand of friendship to those who believe that an entire race of people in a free nation should be 'wiped off of the face of the earth.'
And this doesn't even begin to touch the President's tendency to embrace Communists in our own hemisphere, such as the deposed leader of Nicaragua, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, and Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
This year the Nobel Committee's choice not only highlights the obvious ideological-political bias of the group, but it goes further to portray it's utter growing irrelevance. In fact, this choice distinguishes the committee as a very bad international joke.
