In 2008 all of America watched as a young, mostly unknown, Illinois senator began a presidential run.
At the time, most conservative pundits feared a Hillary win. Hillary being the ruthless power and grit in the Clinton duo; Bill being the charm offensive.
But American politics were taken by storm: Barack Obama, the 1/2 black candidate from the Alinsky halls of Chi Town, gained momentum aided by his active campaign wing, the Main Stream Media. Obama was the Social Media darling of the Millennials who knew next to nothing about our Constitution, and even less about the Candidate.
5 days prior to his first election victory, on Thursday, October 30, 2008, speaking to a cheering throng at the University of Missouri, Obama ominously pronounced:
“We are 5 days aways from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
As we check off the bullet points of Obama’s direct and indirect actions as president, keep in mind the “Cloward–Piven Strategy”:
…a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty”.
First, note President Obama’s signature achievement that will dog his history long after he’s left office, The Affordable Care Act.
The ACA (pet name Obamacare) commandeered 1/6 of America’s economy, booted millions off their “inferior” policies, and forced individuals and business entities to subscribe to healthcare plans which included unnecessary and/or repugnant services.
The full effect of the ACA has still not been entirely felt, as businesses and corporations have been allowed extensions, pushing back the mandatory compliance date. And consider that this is a first for this nation — compelling citizens to purchase good and services.
Second, a little known but chilling action: Dr. Arie Perliger was appointed as an expert in residence to West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center.
Perlinger published a study that caught the attention of a few vigilant individuals, titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right.”
In the study Dr. Perliger writes concerning the danger of conservatives:
The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.
During 1979, for example, two well known speakers of the evangelical movement at that time, Dr. C. Everett Koop and Francis Schaeffer, consistently claimed during a speaking tour that Roe v. Wade“symbolize[d] the triumph of evil over good.”
I wrote in an article last year:
Dr. Perliger paints those who wish to “restore or preserve values and practices” of our national heritage (could he possibly mean The Constitution?) as extreme and violent.
Can he seriously be judging Dr. C. Everett Koop and Dr. Francis Schaeffer to be “far-right” extremists? Dr. Koop was one of our nation’s most highly regarded pro-life and pioneering surgeons, who accrued medical fame performing successful separation of conjoined twins on several occasions.
Dr. Francis Schaeffer was one of America’s most highly esteemed Christian thinkers whose teaching of Apologetics will long endure. Both men were gracious and intelligent; both wholeheartedly pro-life.
Contrast Dr. Koop’s and Dr. Schaeffer’s legacies with that of the many Islamist terrorist groups which celebrate death! Consider that the motto of Hamas is “We love death as much as the Jews love life.”
Dr. Perliger’s study is 147 hard-to-fathom pages, chock-full of socialist and subversive analysis: read it and be horrified that such a work can be attributed to an “expert” embedded in West Point’s Counter Terrorism Center.
Thus, the cultural elite pointed toward those “bitter clingers” and fly-over folks as the real danger to America.
Third, Obama has done everything possible to praise Muslims and Islam.
And not the next-door neighbor, non-radicalized Muslim. In August 2013 Obama offered congratulations to ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), an organization known to be an ally of the Muslim Brotherhood and fellow “mujahideen” in the “Grand Jihad.”
The Muslim Brotherhood (also known as Ikhwan), founded in 1928 by Islamist Hassan al-Banna for the purpose of achieving a global, Islamic caliphate, or rule by Islam and sharia law, has listed 29 ally organizations — and ISNA tops the list!
Al-Banna, whose grandson, Tariq Ramadan, is today the West’s most influential Islamist ensconced at the well-respected Oxford University, preached that the caliphate would be realized through jihad — holy war.
This Grand Jihad remains the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal and reason for being, and those organizations who partner with with the Brotherhood affirm and preach jihad. They may employ “taqiyya” – the strategy of deception (LYING) and so camouflage their true purpose, but they never waiver in their jihadist intent.
Yet, Obama is foolishly deluded in believing that, because he attended a madrasah and has a ½ sister who’s a Muslim, he can bridge the gap between the Western world and the Muslim world.
And let’s not forget Obama’s words to the UN General Assembly:
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
Fourth, President Obama acted as though the Arab Spring was a certain fact, and thus his disastrous foreign policy decisions either ignored, appeased or aided Islamists.
Obama and Sec State Clinton refused to extend and augment the security detail requested for the US compound in Benghazi, Libya.
From my October 2012 article:
Over the last 14 months there had been some 230 attacks against US and ally installments in Libya, 48 of those against Benghazi, and yet repeated requests for additional assets were refused.
It is obvious to all but the most obtuse that Obama’s foreign policy of placation and withdrawal dictated the placement of assets, rather than the reality as understood by the diplomats and SST in country.
Obama and Clinton’s dereliction of duty resulted in the slaughter of our sitting US Ambassador Chris Stevens, former SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, and IMO Sean Smith.
None of the families of the fallen have received any explanation for the US failure to provide more security in advance, or to deploy assistance during the 7 hour, brutal attack by Islamist terrorists.
Obama announced the US would pull the remaining 40,000 troops out of Iraq in 2011 with the statement:
“After nearly nine years, America’s war in Iraq will be over.”
Fifth, Obama’s domestic policy concerning border security has been a joke.
As seen recently in the news, thousands of illegal immigrants comprised of women and children are flooding across our southern border daily.
A massive surge of illegal immigrants is underway, with newly leaked photos revealing hundreds of immigrant children packed like sardines in detention centers.
Illegal immigrant minors are crossing into the U.S., and border patrol is overwhelmed and unable to care for them. The government has been putting them on buses and “dumping” them on street corners in cities like Phoenix, Ariz. Military bases in Texas, California and Oklahoma are also being used to house them.
To say that America’s southern border is porous is an understatement of hyperbolic proportions. Our national security is at risk; our President is unconcerned and on yet another golf junket.
Sixth, President Obama gave Jihadis around the world the green light and painted a target on the back of every US citizen when he brokered an exchange for deserter, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
Bergdahl was exchanged for Guantanamo Bay prisoners, five Taliban commanders: Abdul Haq Wasiq; Mullah Norullah Noori; Mullah Mohammad Fazi; Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa; and Mohammad Nabi Omari.
Not only did this action countermand the long-standing US tradition to never negotiate with terrorists, it emboldened Jihadis around the world and released 5 very evil men to Qatar, a leading supporter of ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant).
Events number 4 and 6 and prompted the unleashing of ISIS.
Now ISIS is marching through Iraq with an end goal of creating a caliphate in the Middle East.
And don’t kid yourself…an ME caliphate is not some New Age Spiritual retreat center with plush prayer rugs and Halal foods. A Caliphate is an Islamic state led by a supreme religious and political Caliph who governs under sharia law.
This Middle East caliphate would serve as the staging and training center for ever more Jihadis to attack the West.
I could go on and on, but at this juncture, I hope that every reader is connecting the dots and realizes Obama is not merely a feckless empty suit.
Obama set out to fundamentally transform America and has done so. In the 5 short years of this President’s tenure, America’s debt has spiked from $10.626 trillion to $17.574 trillion. At least 19.2 million Americans are unemployed, and that number does not count the approximately 4.9 million who have stopped looking for work.
Our southern border is nothing more than another Obama red line: effectual in his imagination only. And Islamists are on the rise around the world.
You tell me: was this an accident?
I submit that the answer to that question is the stuff of nightmares. President Obama promised to transform America. But the truer word would have been “demolish.”
Am I calling Obama un-American? I am implying something much worse, something more sinister. And I am calling for patriots everywhere to wake up before it’s too late…if it’s not indeed, already too late.
May God help us.
