Knowing most people would give him a wide berth because he is black and because of all the hysteria surrounding his runs for the White House, Barack Obama seized the opportunity to upend America. He knew he had four to eight years to achieve his goal: the radical transformation of the U.S. from a constitutional republic to a socialist oligarchy.
He is halfway there. In four years, he has managed to bring America to her knees.
Like him, we bow to the King of Saudi Arabia and to terrorists on both sides of the Sunni-Shi’ite divide. Jihadi terrorism has not been contained. Like a disease, it has spread throughout the Arab world and into North Africa and elsewhere, throughout Europe and the Americas. It reaps in the killing fields with growing efficiency. Attacks on the homeland have not been prevented. Containing the spread of WMD has been a failure. Our military is infiltrated by jihadist sympathizers. The Cabinet is populated by individuals willing to submit to Islam and settle for dhimmi status. Terror training camps and operational cells infest the U.S., poised to strike. Credible intelligence indicates the next strike will be much worse than 9/11. Incredibly, we send billions of dollars every year to countries actively sponsoring global terrorism, and we extend the rights of citizens to enemy combatants in our own courts.
There must be a special category of insanity to describe all this.
In the face of outright threats from North Korea and its nullification of the Korean War ceasefire (essentially a declaration of war against America and South Korea), this impotent president is silent.
In the face of massive slaughter in Syria, he stumbles into a plan in Libya to ship weaponry to ‘rebels’ who turn out to be Al Qaeda operatives in the main, resulting in what happened in Benghazi, which he covers up with criminal intent.
In four years, the Poser has managed to take a bad economic situation and make it much worse. Corrupt healthcare ‘reform’ has meant higher premiums, loss of coverage, limited access, and imminent bankruptcy. Violating religious liberty and personal conscience, the Poser pushes public funding of abortion and death panels, as if The People don’t even exist.
Corrupt and wasteful stimulus spending favoring political friends featuring crony capitalism saw hundreds of billions of borrowed dollars evaporate in ‘investments’ in green catastrophes and projects that weren’t shovel ready after all.
Serial efforts to stave off the inevitable involving quantitative easing and printing funny money only mean the money changers enrich themselves while the common folk watch their savings dissolve in a witch’s brew of government spending, debt, and looming hyper-inflation.
In the face of complete financial disaster driven by insane federal spending, what does the Poser suggest? Increase spending and taxes and debt, then demonize anyone with the gall to demand responsibility.
Meanwhile, the Poser and his henchmen work feverishly through the night to ban or confiscate guns of all kinds, essentially a complete assault on the 2nd Amendment. They work to infiltrate your private life, hoping to gain access to your private financial records, looking to see if you purchase ammunition. Without warrants, the Poser and his pals want to examine your private communications because after all, unlike the Fort Hood shooter, you might be a real terrorist.
And they want to watch you or zap you with drones, all in the name of forwarding the general welfare, of course.
