This week I had a chat, as it were, with a prominent pundit with whom every reader is probably familiar. Although this person is unabashedly liberal, I was still somewhat mortified at how far he was still willing to go in his defense of the Obama administration in light of recent developments.
While some liberals have come to acknowledge that the new health-care program (Obamacare) rollout has been a multi-craft commercial airliner disaster, the president has engaged in overreach with regard to his foreign policy, and that his economic policy is at least wanting, this fellow had an excuse – or a deluded interpretation – for absolutely everything: President Obama’s poll numbers are great, Americans think Sen. Ted Cruz is a fool, and the tea party is on its way out.
In the foreground, of course we have the disastrous Obamacare rollout, which is not only a technical clusterbungle, but it has given rise to rude awakenings with regard to lost coverage and fiscal impact – and we haven’t even gotten into the neutralization of personal liberties therein that will take hold incrementally.
We have Obama’s abject tyranny during the recent government shutdown, which infringed upon the rights of so many that I am astounded it did not result in at least a few deaths stemming from authorities’ reactions to “overzealous” civil disobedience.
The president is in violation of Article III, section 3, clause 1, of the U.S. Constitution; this clearly states that the giving of aid and comfort to the enemy is a treasonable offense. With a wave of his hand, Obama waived that law and is now supplying weapons to al-Qaida and Muslim Brotherhood jihadists in Syria anyway. Then there’s the host of unconstitutional executive orders and under-reported crimes about which Congress remains mute.
In the background, the president has engaged in even deeper collusion with our enemies at home and abroad, among them insinuating members of the Muslim Brotherhood – an organization with a written mission to destroy America – into high places in government. His administration has conspired to sign the U.S. on to the U.N. International Arms Trade Treaty, which would impinge upon American citizens’ Second Amendment protections, as well as providing a disadvantage to our allies abroad. Through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), he is attempting to subordinate America’s economic policy to foreign interests.
The realization among an increasing number of Americans that this cannot stand has also given rise to the awareness that this did not happen overnight, or even over the last five years; Americans’ perfunctory if grudging acceptance of this culture of corruption has spawned a horde of soulless monsters. Those who are not actively engaged in destroying America are so singularly avaricious that their actions are producing the same result. Republican leaders, like my liberal colleague, have resolved to interpret the will of the people through the lens of their desires and political expedience. How do congressional Republicans justify coming down on the side of a communist as though it was garden variety bipartisanship?
The answer? They don’t bother to.
Even the Supreme Court has not escaped corruption. Two of the justices appointed by Obama are lifelong students of old-school communism (as is he), and one might very well be part of the subterfuge surrounding his law school records cover-up. Recently, the Court refused to hear a case involving the administration quashing the indictment of fugitive domestic terrorist Elizabeth Duke, despite said case having involved criminal misfeasance on the part of a magistrate who earlier ruled on the matter.
Since all of the checks and balances in our government have been effectively subverted, the solutions will have to be out of the box. There is the course of civil disobedience to consider; obviously we saw elements of this in protests stemming from the recent government shutdown. There is insurrection, but of course this should be considered only as a last resort. Given the dictatorial proclivities of this president, such action might ultimately wind up being a reaction rather than being initiated by the American people.
It has been suggested that efforts be made to prosecute the Obama administration under the Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO). While I am not an attorney, it occurs to me that this would still necessitate working within a system that has been inherently compromised by parties with decades of preparation, limitless financial resources and legions of lawyers at the ready.
One thing I find monumentally disturbing is the extent to which some, like the liberal colleague I mentioned, continue to go in order to validate and justify this administration’s actions. Given the sheer weight and scope of the evidence, at this juncture only ideology or deep denial could facilitate such a position. From a preponderance of evidence gleaned from the press, intelligence operatives, military personnel and lay witnesses, it is evident that President Obama is a Marxist and Islamist sympathizer who was maneuvered into the presidency by well-heeled socialists and Saudi Islamists. The latter has become more readily apparent as a result of several revelations published recently concerning Obama’s Middle East policy.
I fear that those who still insist upon defending Obama and his ilk, whether liberal commentators or our neighbors, are those who will merely shrug their shoulders when they start kicking down doors and herding people into cattle cars. As such, they certainly shouldn’t be trusted. We have entered the time when we cannot be certain how rapidly this administration’s malignant agenda will advance, so the less such people know about each of us in general, the better.
Speak out – but be prudent, and stay safe.
