Every day I am forced to bear witness to our President’s latest excursion into absurdity …
Okay, I am not forced, but I cannot bury my head in the sand; I am compelled to look. It is impossible to believe that we could elect a man to the office of the presidency who has such a blatant disregard for our Constitution. There is nothing this man envisions that is good for America. It sounds good, but it is the same old tired brand of socialism with a new candy coating. You should have seen two very obvious clues to Obama’s true intentions (I did): first, was when he told Joe the Plumber we needed to spread the wealth around; second, was when he announced that he would fundamentally change the foundations on which this country was built.
Every day is a new extreme
Unbelievably, each day brings a another revamped page from the same Democrat playbook guised as the “Republican War on Women” or “Republicans want to starve school children” … and so on. The latest is the Supreme Court is “stacked” with conservative activists–a brazen claim, considering Obama’s appointments of socialists Sotomayor and Kagen. They never stop accusing others of what they are more than likely doing themselves. Many of you are well aware of their Alinsky ways, but the steady drumbeat of pathetacism is mind-numbing. We have to make it stop.
“It’s time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington. To help build a new foundation for the 21st century, we need to reform our government so that it is more efficient, more transparent, and more creative. That will demand new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar that is spent.
- Barack Obama
“They are not to do anything they please to provide for the general welfare … Giving a distinct and independent power to do any act they please which may be good for the Union, would render all the preceding and subsequent enumerations of power completely useless. It would reduce the whole instrument to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the United States; and as they sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they please.”
- Thomas Jefferson
Obama has boasted of his contempt for the Constitution and believes the Founders were flawed, racist, bigots hell-bent on satisfying their own greed. I find this most insulting, as the Founder’s wrote extensively about the problems of a free society. He doesn’t know what the Founders intended! He doesn’t believe in the ideals that they did, and if he cannot conceptualize the ideals that they promoted, then he cannot know their intentions. The Left’s obsession with race, and their hatred of capitalism, is wearing very thin on all of us. They deride American exceptionalism with impunity; they are defeatists.
They insult conservative Christians and belittle their faith by calling the Bible a collection of fairy tales. They are experts on our religious spirituality because they have read all the Harry Potter books and painfully endured a Pat Robertson interview. Morality is an obstacle to their special interests–quickly dismissing the concept of God. They can feel free to ignore their own conscience. Abortion becomes a casual alternative, and the value of life is diminished. There is now available in the Netherlands “to your door assisted suicide” via a mobile van euthanasia service. Unbelievable.
He is a president of firsts
Obama is the first President to not vet his cabinet in the traditional process–to ensure a reduction of the credit rating of the United States, to violate the War Powers Act; to declare a new human right in the “freedom from want“ speech to the UN; to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico; to make an unlawful recess appointment, while the U.S. Senate remained in session (ignoring his own legal advisers); to spend a trillion dollars on “shovel-ready” jobs, then later admit there were no shovel-ready jobs; to sue states over the requirement of photo IDs when voting; to ignore a federal judge’s court order to cease the implementation of the Healthcare Reform Law; to abrogate bankruptcy laws and turn over control of GM to his union supporters; to terminate our ability to put astronauts into space; to order a secret amnesty program halting the deportation of illegal aliens nationwide, regardless of their criminal record; to encourage racial discrimination and intimidation at electoral polling sites; to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce that law; and he is the first to ignore a House Oversight Committee subpoena … sadly, I could go on and on.
Do they really think these things go unnoticed?
Equally frustrating is our lap dog media that have become a propaganda machine for Obama’s autocracy–turning a blind eye to his totalitarian tendencies. They ignore his disregard for tradition, protocol, and even the law. They make all manner of excuses for him, fudge numbers for him, and paint him as some hard-workin’ guy. Except we all know he spends his time on the golf course. The first Lady is an embarrassment with all of her lavish travel and her flagrant opulence, yet Obama claims to be all about “fairness.” They didn’t ask me to go with them anywhere.
Obama has succeeded in redividing America and pitting us against one another either by class, race, sexual orientation or union status. He has hoisted the bureaucrat to a level of aspiration, and belittled the importance of the private sector. We have people who sit around and make up more rules requiring still more people to sit around think up more rules! Then give us the invoice and a fine that is supposed to be fair.
He claims not to be a socialist, but then invoked and besmirched Ronald Reagan, and tried to claim that Reagan was a socialist and that Obama’s policies were congruent to those of Reagan. Despite the fact that this is utter nonsense, Obama still wants to have it both ways. Obama is a Marxist right down to his socks. He doesn’t want what is best for any of us; he wants to reform America into a gawd-awful Euro-socialist oligarchy. Unbelievable.
“Now we’re in the midst of not just advocating for change, not just calling for change – we’re doing the grinding, sometimes frustrating work of delivering change – inch by inch, day by day.”
- Barack Obama
“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations. “
- James Madison, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention [June 16, 1788]
The man is a walking question mark!
His birth certificate and draft card are a mystery. Almost no one was willing to challenge this question until Sheriff Joe Arpaio grabbed the baton. Consider all of his radical friends and mentors; the Fast and Furious scandal he is promoting; his “green energy” programs in the face of common sense; and simultaneously strangling the coal industry with burdensome new EPA regulations. His policies are strangling what little life remains in our anemic economy. No longer in control of both Houses of Congress, he finds it necessary to regulate and legislate by fiat behind closed doors where the public is not represented. Unbelievable.
“What I worry about would be that you essentially have two chambers, the House and the Senate, but you have simply, majoritarian, absolute power on either side. And that’s just not what the founders intended.”
- Barack Obama
“The powers of the federal government are enumerated; it can only operate in certain cases; it has legislative powers on defined and limited objects, beyond which it cannot extend its jurisdiction.”
- James Madison, Speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention [June 6, 1788]
This is all evidence of his illegitimacy–forget the birth certificate for a moment; he just isn’t a leader. He is an autocrat–a dictator. His policies aren’t going to fix anything; they are going to perpetuate the symptoms so he can continue to blame those that oppose him, while he continues to erode their ability to deter him.
Additionally, his foreign policy is breathtaking. His disrespect of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and his handling of the Iranian nuclear situation, and the Palestinians, are colossal embarrassments. Look at he expression on Obama’s face in the picture to the left: Obama is clearly contemptuous of Netanyahu’s position here. He is not trying to cooperate with Netanyahu; he is confronting him. Moreover, Obama insisted Israel return to the 1967 borders, seemingly without any thought to what the consequences of such action would be. He was suggesting Israel commit suicide! He could only be clueless of Israel’s history–or simply not like them, because they have just complicated everything. This man was supposed to be the great unifier and stop the sea from rising! We are further away from solving these problems now than we were before the anointed one was “immaculated!” Look at the Arab Spring, Egypt, Libya, Jordan and Syria have all succumbed to to uprisings, and their new governance may prove to be worse than what was there previously. Unbelievable.
Watch the following Obama campaign ad implicate itself with Romney’s statements concerning Obama’s Israel/Palestinian remarks:
He has turned America upside down. It makes me sick to watch these occupy maggots spit on achievement and make demands which they will never be entitled to. They demand business should be required to provide them jobs, while claiming that those very same businesses are evil and corrupt. From “Occupy” to the Trayvon Martin shooting, they are trying to ignite civil unrest. The Left has called for a revolution, and will provoke violence if they can push the right buttons and with a DOJ that is obviously looking the other way. They are further encouraged. Unbelievable.
Now the administration has come out with his new campaign slogan–”forward.” This was originated by the Bolsheviks and repeated by the Nazis! This man isn’t taking us forward; we’re going backward. A $15 trillion debt is anything but forward!
Are there any young people out there who are seeing this charade for what is? Were any of our moral values successfully handed off to our children? Are the people whose guilt led them to vote for a Marxist radical going to repent and try to make it up to the rest of us by voting for Romney in November?
All is not lost
Are we a nation of squish? That is what they are hoping for. We have many reasons to be confident. The fact many of us are questioning the brazen contempt this man has for individual freedom is reassuring. Tea Party tenacity and the thumping (cf. “shellacking”) they laid on the Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections was incredible. If we repeat that performance with the addition of the “genuinely disenchanted,” we should fair well–even with a RINO like Romney in the big chair. However, we will have to work hard to hold his feet to the fire. If the RNC can muster the courage and make the effort to be critical of Obama, we may just beat the pants off of him (bad visual). We should be able to landslide him on his record alone!
The following video will remind you of you should feel about your country and all of its truly great accomplishments. It will illustrate the qualities a true leader possesses that inspire a nation to achieve the implausible and aspire to greatness. Self-interest is not selfish; and average is not exceptional:
President Reagan’s Address at the Ceremony Commemorating the 40th Anniversary of the Normandy Invasion, D-day at Point-du-Hoc – 6/6/84
Many of us know what this country is capable of. We have to motivate those around us to become politically enlightened. Do not be afraid to criticize this pathetic excuse for a leader, because he is the harbinger of poverty–spiritually and materially. Fate moves in mysterious ways.
God is seldom on time, but never late.
