Slightly after or concurrent to the Stimulus initiative in late February or early March of 2009 of our timeline was the Auto Bailouts. During the discussions with Congress and GM & Chrysler, numerous irregularities were noted the most egregious was during Steve Rattner’s appointment as Auto Czar. He personally forced the placement of bondholders subordinate to the United Auto Workers (UAW) during the pending Bankruptcy proceedings even though the UAW did not have any claim on any assets of GM.
The Bondholders are considered “secured creditors” in the legal process and held a first payout provision in bankruptcy law after vendors as creditors.

When all is said and done the UAW ended up with a huge stake in GM, which is in deference to federal antitrust laws. Chrysler faired better as they had an outside Suitor, FIAT purchased their assets, although the UAW ended up with a 55% stake in Chrysler. The GM bondholders only ended up with 29 cents on the dollar, even though they were secured creditors, which shows the coercion Obama and his henchmen will go to protect their union allies.
Another nexus in this sad and tired refrain equal to a Greek tragedy on human frailty we have the inexplicable actions of Eric Holder and the DOJ dropping charges against the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation committed during the elections in 2008. DOJ had a default finding and Judgment by the Court and only needed to complete the case to bring justice for the flagrant intimidation of voters outside a polling station in Philadelphia.
This action by the DOJ was also met with internal resistance with numerous long time attorneys resigning in protest.
We also have the remarks made by Holder that he would see to it that minorities would be treated differently now that he was Attorney General. He is also called our Nation a “Nation of Cowards” in a remark in February 2009 during Black History Month on civil rights and racial matters. What else can we expect from Barry and company?

In June of 2009, we have the disputed election results in Iran where the people of this Nation rose up to protest the presidential election of Ajad and their oppressive government of Shiite Muslims. Shiites believe in the succession of the Twelve Imams and that the Sunni majority are illegitimate in their following the teachings of Muhammad, they are simply a more radical form of Islam.
Their sect of Islam is only practiced by 20% of Muslims worldwide.
They refer to our Nation as the “Great Satan” and continually advocate the destruction of our Republic. Barry being the ardent defender of freedom and democracy for our nation did not lift one finger or make any statements to assist the People of Iran that were willing to throw off the shackles of oppression from their Muslim theocracy. Barry and the State Department simply sat on their hands, folded as if cheap lawn chairs, and refused to discuss the matter with a troubled world or this nation’s people.
We have heard the rumors and statements from Barry and others regarding his Muslim roots and leave all of us to wonder, is he a Shiite? This is in contrast to Barry’s immediate response to the Arab Spring in the Sunni world of Islam was swift and deliberate which leads me to believe that he is indeed a Shiite. Barry’s foreign policy has been to let them continue their efforts to produce nuclear weapons, they have already shown their capability in the delivery system(s) with short and medium range tactical missiles, are ICBM‘s far behind? His support of lackluster sanctions has been blatantly ineffectual and leads me to believe he is tacitly supporting their efforts to become a nuclear power.
June was another busy month for Barry and Holder as they are now reading “Miranda Rights” to illegal combatants (terrorists) captured on foreign soil. This naive gesture can only hurt our war effort and endanger the lives of our brave men & women who serve on the front lines in the war on terror. The question must be asked why Barry through the DOJ would go to these extraordinary means to accord jihadists constitutional rights?
For well over a century, the Geneva Convention has codified the waging of war and treatment of enemy combatants among the worlds nations that are signatories to this treaty. Anyone caught in the act of belligerence on a battlefield must comport to certain qualifications under this international agreement to receive the protections that are required under this agreement. Captured terrorists have not met these criteria and are declared illegal combatants why Barry and the DOJ wish to accord them the extraordinary windfall of Constitutional rights is baffling and unsettling as it may have complications in any future war(s).
The next occurrence is almost too strange to contemplate and occurred in July of 2009 and was an off hand remark by Barry on how Police were “acting stupidly” about the arrest by Sgt. James Crowley of the Cambridge Massachusetts PD who arrested professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. an alleged friend of Barry.
The facts of the case were bizarre to say the least and ended with a “Beer Summit” between Barry, Biden, Professor Gates and Sgt. Crowley. It was a telling and defining moment for Barry marching out to the Rose Garden leaving Sgt. Crowley and Professor Gates far behind. Prudence dictates that I leave it up to each of you to judge the matter for yourself, however a picture is worth a thousand words please see for yourself how George Bush conducted himself in such matters, GWB is pictured at the end of the article!
As we slide, further down this slippery slope that we have come to know as Barry and his entourage comes in September of 2009 where we come face to face with Van Jones Barry’s Green Jobs Czar. Valerie Jarrett another long time advisor to Barry waxes poetically about Mr. Jones after he was announced to fill this Czar’s role and if memory serves “we have had our eye on him for quite a while“ the “we“ is telling and implies others had a hand in his appointment.
While Valerie and Barry were singing his praises, Glenn Beck did the Nation a great service, checked into the background of this latest darling of theirs, and found that this man was a self-avowed and shameless Communist that advocated the violent overthrow of our Government. The Paparazzi after going to bed on a Friday night when the presses are silent and most of Washington has retired for the weekend quietly announced the resignation of none other than Mr. Van Jones. The real question that needs to be answered is how did this man ever get past a security background check and receive security clearance to work in the White House?
Before we are finished with 2009 we need to look at two other issues that will round out the picture of our first tapestry, the first is comments made by Anita Dunn as the interim White House Communications Director in a Speech to High School Students in June of 2009. Wherein she states that, she admires the Philosophy of Mao Tse Sung as a “primary source of inspiration.”
(Note: Mao is personally responsible for the destruction of at least 40 million upwards of 80 million oxygen absorbing and carbon dioxide expelling biological units, we know them more commonly as humans!)
I used the previous description to break down the nature of these leftist, Statist, Marxists that infest the environs of power in the White House and Washington with this ludicrous description of humans is in keeping with lefts belief that some humans are more valuable than others are. As they are, constantly advocating policies that are in stark contrast to Christian values and our founding principles to curtail our progress, economy and population with their rabid belief in abortion (infanticide) as just one example and their destructive economic policies as another.
To finish 2009 as we progress along this timeline we are faced with what appears to be stark evidence that the White House Christmas Tree was adorned with a Mao Tse Sung ornament, this of course seems trivial when compared against the size of the tree that adorns this ornament. This should leave one to ponder that statements made by Barry and his associates and assistants is contrary to just what they appear to be! Many if not all of them must be supporters of Socialist, Marxist agendas and beliefs; their protesting otherwise has nothing but a Hollow Ring of hypocrisy and obfuscation.
Barry cannot hide from these facts as if Van Jones was an anomaly of poor judgment, and Anita Dunn with her admiration of Mao statements must be included in the ’we” statement of Valerie Jarrett if not Barry himself. Nor does it dispel any myths to the contrary of their true political beliefs and ideological spectrum of socialist origins as their core beliefs and ideology.
Conclusions for the Election to 2009
We were first introduced to Barry as a starving college student that was traveling and lodging in places he could ill afford by his own description. We are then shown that the Russian Government thought Barry to be a British spy while on an official visit, what follows next is when Barry is indifferent to our National Anthem and Pledge of Allegiance. His Certificate of Live Birth discussion and the sequestering of his bon-fides follow this, though he has proven himself ineligible to hold the presidency. He is forever shaped by his refusal to share these important documents with a puzzled nation and augments the fait-accompli of his ascent to power. Followed by the inexplicable death by a thousand paper cuts on the tampering of Supreme Court cases for Minor v. Happersett prior to the Election in 2008 by person(s) unknown.
When the decision is reached to send the Churchill bust back to Britain only reinforces the other nexus points about Britain through his Fathers citizenship and the Russians holding him as a British spy. Next up is the callous treatment of the Families that lost loved ones on the USS Cole and we only shake our heads and wonder what he really meant to accomplish We have Barry being constantly on the nations airwaves with his pronouncements for the stimulus and our dire economic straits.
We are then shown the derision of the Tea Party movement and his intolerance for opposing viewpoints. Then we have the bankruptcies of GM & Chrysler where Barry coerced the GM Bond holders to relinquish their secured position and received only 29 cents on the dollar. We are then shown that Justice is not equal by Barry and his cohort Holder with dropping charges against the New Black Panthers Party for Voter Intimidation after already winning the case with a default conviction.
In June of 2009 we have Barry sitting on his hands while the people of Iran are being murdered in the streets without even one word being spoken on their behalf, the silence was deafening. In July, we have the laughable Beer Summit, which was just a media cover for Barry’s callous and wanton premature remarks on race relations before knowing any relevant facts. This path becomes a quagmire when Barry decides to accord constitutional rights to terrorists whom are illegal combatants as defined by the Geneva Convention and have limited rights under International Law.
We are then shown Van Jones to be an avowed Communist and the apple of Barry and his Staff’s eye as an avowed communist that advocated the violent overthrow of our form of Government.
We are then introduced to another Marxist Anita Dunn the White House Communications Director and her favorite philosopher Mao Tse Sung. Then we close the year with celebration of Christmas with a Mao Tse Sung ornament gracing the White House Christmas Tree, no doubt being placed in a position of great Honor. This tapestry is frenetic and disjointed though a central theme connects all the threads that Barry is a Man with something to hide. What is he hiding is still unknown; however, there is a confluence of actions that we have never seen in a president that is destructive to our very way of life and our constitutional founding on self-rule and the rule of law.
The nation cannot stand another four years of this assault on our freedom and way of life and wholesale lawlessness and the assault on the rule of law that Barry has brought to the table. It is imperative that he be shown the door in November, if we are to continue as a Constitutional Republic.
