My former Italian father-in-law used to say this, half in jest: "Appreciate today, because tomorrow is going to be even worse."
Guido, Rome's answer to "I don't get no respect" Rodney Dangerfield, may they both rest in peace, had it right, particularly in today's world of President Barack Hussein Obama. If 2014 is any indication, a year that saw not only a myriad of continuing deepening Obama scandals, but, for good measure, also the opening of relations with the Hitleresque dictatorship of Communist Cuba, then 2015 promises more of the same, only worse. Indeed, under the "leadership" of our "Black-Muslim in Chief" – who favors all things African and Islamic over the rest of us – it is likely that the nation and the world is about to explode at any moment. Things have simply been simmering along for too long for this not to occur at some point.
Here are looming crises to watch in 2015 – which could send our country and the rest of the free world into a tailspin if not a death spiral.
First, thanks in large part to Obama's pro-Islamic policies and actions, the Middle East is likely to explode. It's not just ISIS that presents this real imminent threat, or the re-emergence of its rival terrorist groups, but potentially fatal is the situation with Israel. Abandoned by Obama in its quest to prevent a nuclear Iran, the Jewish state will finally be forced into acting alone, to prevent another potential Holocaust. The mullahs in Tehran continue to threaten to wipe Israel off of the face of the earth, and they mean it. They cannot be permitted to even get close to assembling nuclear bombs, with the already existent means via intercontinental missiles to deliver them even to Western Europe.
Obama and his leftist comrades, however, continue to appease Iran, much like they do with Communist Cuba, thereby weakening significantly not only Israel's national security but our own. But that is their goal – to bring the United States and its non-Muslim allies to their knees and make our nation into a mere fraction of what it used to be under the likes of President Reagan. Obama's mission is not only truly treasonous, but also truly evil. He is more dangerous than the terrorists themselves, because he is destroying us from within, and the Republican opposition is standing by and watching this happen, "playing it safe, " not wanting to offend anyone who might vote for their candidates and waiting for their chance to retake the White House in 2016. But by then, it could be too late, even were they really to do something then to save the republic.
Second, the domestic and international economies, in the event of a catastrophe in the Middle East or more overt aggression by Putin, whereby the Russian bear may be more emboldened to seize total control of Ukraine and perhaps some other former Soviet satellite republics, could take a dive. Already, many experts see the current high of the stock market reminiscent of the days leading up to the crash of 2008, and this bubble is likely to burst at some point if there are heightened crises overseas. And, the price of oil, which has artificially boosted economies in recent months, could skyrocket if some oil fields in the Middle East are destroyed, or if Putin's Russian reserves are cut off in some way to Western Europe. These are just a few of the looming economic risks to the domestic and worldwide economies of the free world.
The bottom line is this: We are still dependent in large part on foreign oil, particularly since our president has stifled the development of natural gas in our own country, which by now, after six years of his reign, could have made us and our allies energy independent. Indeed, that is likely why OPEC, the primarily Arabic cartel of oil producers, has kept the price of oil low, to create a continuing dependence on Middle Eastern petrol.
Third, while somewhat dormant for now, expect an increase in deadly Ebola virus infections not just in West Africa, but here in our country. Not wanting to stem the flow of visitors from his native Africa, particularly from Liberia, Sierra Leon and other ravaged states, Obama continues to open the door to a real and imminent health crisis here at home. And, should suicide terrorists opt to infect themselves and sneak into our country with the disease, this likely prospect could well create a massive epidemic.
Fourth, there is the continuing looming catastrophe of open American borders, which indeed terrorists would be smart to exploit to further their ends. Obama's unconstitutional amnesty, which I am challenging in court along with a number of his other scandals. Obama's amnesty will allow many criminals loose to run free within our borders, deepening the worsening crime rate in many areas of the nation.
Fifth and hardly least, is the corrosive race war Obama and his racist friends such as the so-called Rev. Louis Farrakhan and the likes of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have been fomenting. This had not just led just to the deaths of more cops, but threatens all of us, including noble and courageous black conservatives who speak out and act against this Ku Klux Klan-like racism. Thanks to Obama and his fellow race baiters, the nation is being pulled apart at its seams. Today, Obama and his minions have ignited the racial and religious divides and driven the country into what is virtually open warfare among our diverse populations. They have cleverly done this to divide us and destroy our social fabric. Once their job is complete, these treacherous traitors will be free to snuff out all remaining vestiges of freedom and erect their form of socialist dictatorship permanently.
I would have liked to write a positive column this New Year's. Indeed, over several cups of coffee on a balcony overlooking the majestic Atlantic Ocean this morning, I thought long and hard about being more optimistic. But I could not put my head in the sand that was across the road and pretend that all is well on the "western front." It is not – and it's time that We the People face reality and take hard, forceful legal steps in 2015 to legally rid the nation of the evil emperor in the White House, who is on the cusp of destroying all that is good about our great republic.
