"Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin again the work of remaking America. â€“ President Barack Obama, inaugural speech
In all honesty, I thought I'd be back to covering broader topics by now, meaning, this far out from the inauguration. Despite the evidence that Obama was a closet communist, at this point I presumed he'd have settled into being something slightly more to the left than Bill Clinton and work his evil incrementally.
But Obama's been very bold. "Decisive action" (a phrase he favors) toward that which will raze our economy with all due speed (the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the Omnibus Spending Bill) speaks to his intent to execute a quiet revolution through which he and Congress will surely "remake America." Consequently, there are several poignant instances of his duplicity every week.
It makes my job easy, but is small consolation.
Last October, one of my colleagues cited the strategy implemented by far-left members of Congress (and continued by the Obama administration) wherein entitlements and legislation such as the Community Reinvestment Act would be used to bring down America's economy. This plan is quite unambiguous in its purpose and scope; in the desired scenario â€“ which is being played out right now â€“ the federal government steps in and nationalizes vast sectors of business.
Still, most Americans do not perceive the extremity of Obama's exploits or the gravity of our situation. Why?
Yes, it's becoming tedious, but nonetheless remains true:
The man is a pathological liar. The establishment press has become his bureau of propaganda. Each day, the president declares an intended purpose for a given action, yet neither history, nor reason, nor his track record suggest truth or the likelihood of a favorable long-term result for the nation. The agenda can't even be called "hidden." It's in plain sight â€“ assuming one's eyes are not being misdirected.
That, as they say, is the rub.
The establishment press gives no airtime to experts with a pragmatic sense of economics. They don't report the lavish soirees the Obamas have been throwing, or the harridan Nancy Pelosi's squandering of taxpayer money on military jets to ferry her family and friends around the country. Not a word has been spoken with respect to Obama lying about banning earmarks and curtailing the influence of lobbyists. Most Americans would be amazed to learn that aggressor nations such as North Korea and Iran â€“ which were supposed to have changed their tunes as soon as Obama was sworn in â€“ have stepped up their anti-American rhetoric.
Most importantly, we don't hear that Congress and the Obama administration are wiping their behinds with the Constitution and quite literally stealing billions of dollars from us on a weekly basis.
So, what does the press think ought to be important to Americans? An unbalanced baby machine with an Angelina Jolie complex, Rihanna's Stockholm Syndrome, Miley Cyrus and, of course, global warming.
A few weeks ago, a television commentator in the alternative press suggested that Obama seemed to be attempting to "ram it through," in reference to the urgency with which he promoted the stimulus bill. Indeed â€“ like the proverbial cellblock rapist, our president is "ramming" as much of his Marxist agenda down our collective throats as quickly as he can. One would think he fears that someone might come around the corner at any second and catch him.
Perhaps there is a "point of no return" Obama is hurrying to reach, where the American people will be truly powerless to reverse the final implementation of his designs. Certainly it has been reached in other countries.
On March 10, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly cited calls that Obama is a communist as over the top accusations of the far right.
If the far left learned anything from the collapse of the Soviet Union â€“ which literally spent itself out of existence â€“ no doubt it was that the best way to bring a powerful nation down was to break it economically.
When the government has appropriated or sufficiently devalued all private resources (read steals all our money):
a. We won't have the means to resist. b. We will be destitute. c. We will be beholden to anyone who has the means to provide us aid. And guess what? That very government will be the only entity capable of providing that aid. They will declare that the system (capitalism) has failed us, and that state control is our only hope.
We will be slaves.
While greed has been the motivating factor for many power brokers in government, this dismantling of the system has been the goal of those on the far left for decades. It is the vilest of conspiracies. I'll leave it to the reader to decide what the penalty for this treason ought to be â€“ for all concerned.
