Economists, historians, conservatives, political analysts, and every day observers have warned and waited, all the while praying it wouldn’t come, for the day that America’s Music… its Power, that both commanded respect and gave hope to people around the globe since our Founding Father’s won their freedom from Great Britain and the American Experiment began, to die… It has been coming for a long time and for those who understand history and have educated themselves on the Progressive Globalist Agenda, the only questions were: Is there any hope of turning this ship around, however slight, and if not when and how would we know that the music had died…
I believe that many would say the moment was this past week… the day America was no long the world’s super power… On Friday, 08.30.13, Russia restructured Cyprus’ Debt; Cyprus Prohibits US strikes on Syria and this comes after Putin called for a meeting of the UN Security Council after France, Great Britain, Germany and most everyone else told Obama and the U.S. that they would not support us in the Syrian offensive.
Zero Hedge: Yesterday afternoon, Russia agreed to restructure Cyprus’ EUR 2.5 billion loan terms to a much more affordable 2.5% semi-annual coupon through 2016 and a principal re-payment over the following four years. While probably still out of reach for the desperate economy, it was a positive step. Of course, this ‘offer’ by Russia has its quid pro quo. This morning, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has stated that Cyprus territory will not be used to launch military strikes against Syria, as "Cyprus wants to live up to its responsibility as a shelter if needed for nationals of friendly countries who evacuate from Middle East". It would appear Obama’s influence is fading everywhere…
Cyprus is located ~183 nautical miles west of Syria and is the EU member nearest to Syria.

So, it would appear there is the ‘quid’ and the ‘quo’… what next? US offers to build Cyprus casinos, Google ‘Glass’ for everyone, and the rights to "American Idol" for free?
And what comes next? A brand spanking new Russian naval base in the heart of the Mediterranean…
Some have commented that Obama is completely out of his league and lacks the ability to form coalitions.
Obama comes from a community organizer mentality of the hard left. The strategy in community organizing is to bully, intimidate, bluff, and humiliate the opposition into caving. There is no strategy for building coalitions, relationships, or win-win outcomes. During Obama’s years as a community organizer, things were pretty mush a cake walk. It wasn’t like in the early civil rights days when civil rights activists could be killed. By the time Obama was a community organizer, whites were pretty much caving in on anything, and more often than not, any conflict wasn’t even genuine, because both sides were from the Left. How much conflict is there in deciding between the democrat government, democrat unions, and democrat community organizers on how to distribute other people’s money?
As president, for the first time, he and his team, fresh from their graduate schools, are having to negotiate with people who are working in the best interest of their own peoples. And things are not going well for Obama, because real politics is not going like their term papers said it would, and they are not caving in like Obama’s only previous experience.
Now we see how out of his league Obama really is.
Others would say… this was the plan the whole time. Obama is the puppet placed in power by the progressives, the ruling global elite, and destroying America and moving the world to a new order with one central government was always the plan. And having done such a great job programming the average American, they knew if a black person was put into office, nobody would have the courage to speak out! Game over…
Earlier in the week, former U.S. United Nations’ Ambassador John Bolton appeared with Great Van Susteren on On the Record saying he hopes the world will realize that Obama does not represent the majority of the United States and that we, the United States, along with the rest of the world, is on a little over a 1200 day count-down until we get a new competent president.
