RALPH PETERS: You often hear people say, ‘Obama is the worst president ever.’ And it sounds like hyperbole. But in the foreign policy and security sphere, without a doubt, Obama is by far the worst foreign policy and security president we have ever had, pervasive extensive failures of practically every continent, at the same time we have this shameless self-congratulations from the White House. You really have to go to the roots of this: Obama came to office in early 2009, really prejudiced against America. In foreign policy, and the West, and certainly Israel, as the problem, and certainly the cause of the problems. And Islamic extremism, and Russian intransigence, as effects. But the world is more complicated than that. And I will tell you, America has not been this weak in my lifetime. Even Jimmy Carter looks relatively strong by comparison.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once.

The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out  emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

Every broadcaster in the country is required to participate in the EAS. Messages travel along a closed, private network, piggybacking from station to station. It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to blare its alert.

Representative Peter Welch (Democrat, Vermont and, by the way, my representative) has announced that he is in favor of raising the tax on gasoline. He has a safe seat and, anyway, in Vermont it isn’t politically dangerous to propose a tax increase, especially if it can be somehow made into a positive for jobs and infrastructure and a negative for automobiles and oil companies. Vermont is eagerly anticipating the arrival of cars that are powered by wind.

The U.S. Agriculture Department has set a goal of serving 178 million free meals to children now that school is out. That’s 10 million more meals than were served last summer.

“Admittedly, this is an aggressive goal, and we can’t do it alone,” Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a column posted on the USDA website. “With strong support from individuals, communities, local governments and advocates, we can reach more kids with nutritious meals during their time out of school.”

USDA is urging Americans to “help spread awareness of summer meals in your community” by using the National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3-Hungry or 1-877-8-Hambre (the latter number for Spanish speakers, it notes).

Amidst internal dissent, George Soros’s shadowy political funding powerhouse is planning to execute a $200 million fundraising campaign this election cycle in order to benefit key groups pushing for a permanent radical left-wing Democrat majority.

The billionaire members of the elite fundraising empire known as the Democracy Alliance have reportedly funneled $500 million or more into leftist and pro-Democrat organizations. The goal of the Alliance is to foster a permanent political infrastructure of left-wing nonprofits, think tanks, media outlets, leadership schools, and activist groups.

Any person promoting democracy or any organization with the word ‘democracy’ in its title is of course going to be anti-American.
