Who is this Guy in the Oval Office? (Part 7)


You Don’t understand him!
Barry is correct. He didn’t raise taxes once; he raised taxes many times! Isn’t English great?
By Joseph A. Gamero
Wednesday, February 9, 2011
Millions of Americans are mad at Barry Soetoro, because he told Bill O’Reilly, looking straight into his eyes and without blinking, “I didn’t raise taxes once.”
Some even say that’s a blatant lie! But wait a minute; Barry is a lawyer and lawyers undergo extensive training in the use of language as to make wrong sound like right.
Barry is correct. He didn’t raise taxes once; he raised taxes many times! Isn’t English great? And when English doesn’t cut it, the legal profession has recourse to Latin since, what the heck, few Americans understand it.
Just to give you an idea of the Prez’ lack of candidness with you, here’s a short list of some of the taxes he has imposed thus far:
Feb. 4, 2009 – Obama signs federal tobacco tax hike: Just sixteen days into his presidency, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco – a hike of 62 cents per pack. Obama’s signature on this tax hike was a violation of his central campaign promise – a “firm pledge” that no American couple making less than $250,000 would see “any form of tax increase”. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000.
March 23, 2010 – Obama signs the healthcare bill into law: Obama’s signature on the health care bill enacted two dozen new or higher taxes (at least seven of which violate his “firm pledge” on taxes), including but not limited to:
Individual Mandate Excise Tax
Employer Mandate Excise Tax
Small business 1099-MISC Information Reporting
Surtax on Investment Income
Excise Tax on Comprehensive Health Insurance Plans
Hike in Medicare Payroll Tax
Medicine Cabinet Tax
HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike
Flexible Spending Account Cap – a.k.a “Special Needs Kids Tax”
Tax on Medical Device Manufacturers
“Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deduction from 7.5% to 10% of AGI
Tax on Indoor Tanning Services
Elimination of tax deduction for employer-provided retirement Rx drug coverage
Blue Cross/Blue Shield Tax Hike
Excise Tax on Charitable Hospitals
Tax on Innovator Drug Companies
Tax on Health Insurers
Biofuel “black liquor” tax hike
Codification of the “economic substance doctrine”
Now let’s turn to the second part of Obama’s claim: “I lowered taxes over the last two years. I lowered taxes for the last two years.”
President Obama’s entire claim of being a net tax-cutter rests merely upon the temporary tax relief he has signed into law. The tax increases Obama has signed into law have invariably been permanent. In fact, Obama signed into law $7 in permanent tax hikes for every $1 in permanent tax cuts
Over 90% of the dollar value of the tax cuts Obama signed into law are only temporary
100% of the tax increases Obama signed into law are, however, permanent
Permanent changes to tax law signed by Obama amount to a net tax hike of $618.7 billion
Credit for this list belongs to Americans for Tax Reform
“I lowered taxes for the last two years.”
Another lie?
No! He’s right! It’s just that, in the interest of time and because on TV time is money, Barry couldn’t clarify that for every dollar in (temporary) tax cuts he made, he has raised $7 dollars in permanent tax increases (see above)! Well, he had to consider Fox News’ valuable time! Isn’t he the nicest guy you ever elected?
So, you see, you bigots; Nazis; Bible-thumpers from the intolerable right of the political spectrum, you must stop attacking the duly elected man from Mombasa (no hanky-panky on that election), silence Sarah Palin, everyone at that dreadful Fox News Channel, Rush Limbaugh and his ilk, and bow to Barry while shouting “Allahu Akbar!” You owe him an apology!

Obama Doesn't Identify With Americans
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
November 1, 2010
In a series of interviews with someone called "Ulsterman", a former White House Insider confirms what I have been saying about Barack Obama since before his election in 2008.
Obama is a light weight, a front man, an impostor, unfit to be President. "Everything was handed to him." He likes to campaign. He doesn't like to govern. He's lazy and prefers to watch sports. He's not that smart. He doesn't have the gravitas to be President. He's more at home in a bathhouse than the White House.
This "insider" helped Obama get elected. But now he's part of a groundswell in the Democratic Party to replace Obama with Hillary Clinton in 2012. After the expected mid-term election debacle, the gloves will come off. A Watergate-like scandal is brewing. It reaches back to Obama's days in Chicago. As with the Lewinsky scandal, the Presidency will be paralyzed.
A couple of quotes jumped out at me. They seem to get to the heart of the problem. Neither Obama nor his wife really identify with Americans.
Here is the first quote:
"The man is an incompetent. The man is a tool of the extreme far left that has utterly corrupted the Democratic Party. The man and those now closest to him in the administration appear to abhor America's history. They detest anyone who does not fully subscribe to their positions. They are corrupt, they are increasingly paranoid, and they are taking this country down a path by which we may never recover."
Here is the second quote:
"Nancy Pelosi is the far left of the Democrat Party, right? Well, Michelle Obama might be to the left of Nancy Pelosi. She really doesn't care for how things work in the country and she wants to see it all changed."
The insider is saying they are Communists, exactly what I said during the 2008 election campaign. This is why his heart isn't in the job. He doesn't care about the United States. He wants to see it disappear in a "New World Order." This attitude is manifested in a meeting with top generals about Afghanistan. The insider describes it:
"He's late, which apparently is becoming more and more common with him. The meeting was almost canceled. In strolls the president, joking with an aide. He plops down on a sofa, leans over and claps another guy on the back asking how he's been. Apologizes for being late, says he was "held up". He laughs some more. The meeting begins. After just ten minutes, during which time the president appears to almost totally withdraw into himself, an aide walks in and whispers something to the president, who then nods and quickly stands up, shakes a few hands and tells another aide to update him later on the rest of the meeting. As the president is walking out he is laughing at something yet again. He asked no questions of those at the meeting - not one. He left after just ten minutes, coming in laughing and leaving laughing. His behavior during that brief time he was there was described as "borderline manic".
The generals were livid. But why should Obama care about American soldiers in Afghanistan?
Have you ever wondered how a Kenyan-born, part-Jewish, bisexual CIA asset at the "extreme far left" of the political spectrum got elected in the first place? He is a joke on America by the international financial cartel that has colonized it.
Obama was groomed and elected by the Illuminati bankers (using their corporations and media.) These bankers have been waging a covert war against the USA (and humanity) for centuries. They fund the Taliban. So why would Obama really care about US progress in Afghanistan?
Through their corporate cartels, the Illuminati bankers (i.e. the Federal reserve) fund both the Left and Right in the United States. US politics is basically a shadow play.
The Illuminati bankers want to leverage their monopoly over government credit into a monopoly over everything. Government is the ultimate monopoly. Thus corporations and government become one, i.e. Communism. The government is the corporation's biggest customer. The corporation staffs and finances the government. Both are owned by the central banker.
At the same time, the banker monopoly is extended to human thought and spirit using the mass media and education.
The Tea Party- Republican Victory Tuesday will make no difference because the Masonic bankers own them too. Do you hear Tea Party candidates calling for the government to disavow the so-called national "debt" and utilize its own credit to print its own interest-free money?
Do you hear them questioning the US commitment to Israel or the bogus war on terror or the gratuitous war in Afghanistan? Do you hear them calling for more civil liberties or an investigation into 9-11?
After Tuesday, it will be business as usual. "Partisan" gridlock, acrimony, disillusionment and frustration. By 2012, Hillary Clinton will be the next "savior" but she and Bill are Illuminati too. Remember "health care reform" was her baby.
The Illuminati goal is to demoralize Americans and lower their living standard so they may take their place in new world order as lowly equals.
America cannot address its problems because it cannot define them. It cannot unite against its real enemy because most people in positions of influence, from Jon Stewart to Rand Paul, are Masons and indirectly work for the bankers.
Wayne Madsen Report adds:
The White House staffer told "Ulsterman" that he was uncomfortable talking about the marital situation between the president and the First Lady, but WMR has previously reported on Obama's bi-sexuality, his activities with gay members of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ and an uptown Chicago bath house, in addition to his current controversial relationship with his personal trainer, Reggie Love, and a past short relationship with Larry Sinclair.
Obama's depression and lack of interest in his duties have senior administration officials and some Cabinet secretaries considering the invocation of Section 4 of the 25th Amendment, which deals with the involuntary removal of the president for physical or mental incapacity.
The Smartest Man in the Room?
Barack Obama is just not smart. Not street smart. Not academically smart. Not people smart. But smart enough to have gotten elected, the politician’s idea of smart
By Alan Caruba
Thursday, December 2, 2010
Harry S. Truman did not have a formal college education and George Washington acquired enough education to become largely self-taught thereafter. All the other presidents had a diploma.
In his youth Truman was too busy working the family farm, fighting in World War One, and failing at business. Hardly the most encouraging resume at first glance, but after learning politics at the knee of Tom Pendergast, the famed Kansas political boss, Truman went on to have a distinguished career in Congress and to be selected to be vice president on the ticket with Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Then, on April 12, 1945, Roosevelt died. Truman would become the president who ended World War Two
in the Pacific with two A-bombs on Japanese cities even as the emperor and his advisors were still set to resist an invasion that would have cost the lives of an estimated half million or more American fighting men. Truman then set in motion the resistance to Soviet aggression—the Cold War—and in general made a succession of very good decisions at a very critical time in U.S. history.
By contrast, Herbert Hoover had earlier made his way to the presidency by demonstrating the application of his skills as an engineer and administrator, but the onset of the Great Depression defied his efforts to reverse it, lacking as he did much background in economics. Historians agree that Roosevelt, who replaced him, was a poor student and lacked any judgment whatever in economics. This contributed greatly to his prolonging the Depression to an interminable ten years that were ended only by the onslaught of World War Two; a kind of full-employment program.
An earlier brainiac was Woodrow Wilson. He received a Ph.D. in history and political science from Johns Hopkins University in history, became president of Princeton University, and was elected Governor of New Jersey before assuming the U.S. presidency. By any academic measure, Wilson seemed ideally prepared for the job, but he was a progressive and an ideologue. His failed struggle to get the U.S. Senate to ratify membership in the League of Nations, a precursor to the United Nations, may have led to a stroke that disabled him, rendering his final year in office a charade.
Ronald Reagan, who was widely derided by his critics as an amiable dunce, had earned a BA degree from Eureka College, Illinois, in 1932 but never stopped educating himself, particularly regarding conservative principles of governance. His election came in the wake of the disastrous single term of Jimmy Carter, an engineer by education, a peanut farmer by occupation, and an embarrassment to the nation by embracing every dictator he ever met.
George W. Bush holds two degrees, a BA from Yale, 1968, and a Masters in Business Administration
from Harvard University in 1975. He, too, was constantly portrayed in the press as a fool, often because of his syntax, in contrast to Reagan who was hailed the great communicator. Saddam Hussein underestimated Bush and his father. So did others.
I cite this history only because, during the campaign, and during his first year in office, Barack Hussein Obama was constantly hailed the most brilliant man to have ever ascended to the presidency. A graduate of Columbia University and later Harvard Law School (neither transcript of his grades is available), Americans were reassured time and again that he was the proverbial “smartest man in the room” and there is little doubt he still believes that.
Obama surrounded himself with academics in his cabinet and among the many “czars” he selected to advise him and set policy, the latter without the benefit of being vetted by Congress. Of those who had experience in the private sector, Wilson’s cabinet constituted 52%; Hoover’s 42%; Roosevelt’s 50%; Reagan’s 56%, George W. Bush, 55%, and Obama? A mere 8%! His initial advisors on the economy have already departed for their respective ivory towers, still baffled by an official unemployment rate of 9.6%.
It became noticeable early on, particularly during press conferences (which became few and far between), that Obama was unable to answer a question in anything less than several minutes of tendentious and wandering effort.
He was, we were told, an academic who had taught the U.S. Constitution at the University of Chicago, but he was no professor. He was more like an adjunct, a part-timer brought in to relieve the faculty of minor teaching chores; in his case teaching a course about the Constitution.
Despite this, Obama has demonstrated an abysmal lack of understanding of the Constitution, regarding it as being more a “charter of negative liberties.” Apparently, the Bill of Rights that restricts government from denying freedom of speech, press, religion, and the right to peacefully assemble are “negative” things in his view.
More specifically, Obama does not “get” America. He does not understand its entrepreneurial spirit. He has a low regard for the power centers of capitalism, Wall Street, the insurance industry, the giants of
pharmaceutical, medical, chemical and technological innovation; those who have brought about computer and Internet-related advances.
At the time of the nation’s birth, America was blessed with some of the finest minds available for the task. They included, in addition to Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Hamilton, and a certifiable genius, Benjamin Franklin. When the original Articles of Confederation didn’t work, they and others got together in Philadelphia, shut the doors, and hammered out the Constitution.
When one looks at the array of men and women in high public office today, it is hard not to conclude that most are imbeciles.
The mere thought that the nation’s security has been entrusted to Janet Napolitano or its health to Kathleen Sebelius is enough to keep one up at night, but what is most obvious is that Barack Obama is just not smart. Not street smart. Not academically smart. Not people smart. But smart enough to have gotten elected, the politician’s idea of smart.
We are left to hope the nation can survive him long enough to repair the damage he will leave in his wake.
The mask has slipped
Obama, The smiling mask has slipped, revealing the snarling face of sociopathic fascism
By Michael Oberndorf, RPA
Tuesday, November 30, 2010
Over the past three years – the campaign and Obama’s two years in power – the illusion of benign change as the goal of the Soros cabal has developed major cracks. We have had a “healthcare reform” plan that raises costs hugely, lessens benefits, limits coverage, and lays the groundwork for legalizing euthanasia, rammed through the congress in a manner that must have made Joe Stalin oh-so-proud.
We’ve seen our national treasury looted, with the unaccounted for cash handed out to already fabulously wealthy financial houses. We’ve seen core industries taken over and control given to thug unions who caused most of the financial woes the industries suffered from in the first place. We’ve seen regulations heaped ever deeper on independent agriculture, making us further dependent on the Third World and large multinational corporations for our food. Despite the wailing about dependency on foreign oil, Obama and his unindicted Democrat/RINO co-conspirators have – quite illegally – thrown up roadblock after roadblock to domestic oil production.
Bad as all this has been, with the stentorian efforts of the “mainstream” media, the fascists have managed to keep up the pretense that this is all for our own good. Until the Invasion of the Body Scanners. Oops.
The smiling mask has slipped, revealing the snarling face of sociopathic fascism. In an attempt to force the traveling public to submit to draconian invasive police searches that amount to sexual assault, the jack-booted thugs of the totally misnamed Transportation SAFETY Authority have been exposed for the concentration camp guards that they really are. The scans and sexual assault searches are NOT about increasing security. They are about getting Americans used to giving up their Constitutional rights, without question, and obeying the commands of authority figures in uniform, no matter how outrageous. Today, airports, tomorrow, our city streets and homes.
If this were truly about security, and not about control over the American public, why have they left our
southern border wide open? Last year, the Border Patrol – which admits it interdicts at most 10% of illegals – arrested 12 Afghanis, 95 Indonesians, 42 Iranians, 42 Iraquis, 52 Jordanians, 6 Saudi Arabians, 70 Somalis, and 22 Yemenis. That is 341 people from countries where myriad Islamic terrorists are known to be active. And if this number represents a maximum 10%, it suggests that last year alone, several thousand potential mass murderers entered our country, hell bent on killing as many of us as possible, and bringing down our country in the process. Hmmm. Put this way, it sure is clear how strip searching eight year-olds and groping nuns and grandmothers will keep us safe! Barack Hussein Obama, mmm, mmm, mmm!
One last little tidbit from the most recent batch of liberal-released classified government documents (treason, by any other name…). It is glaringly evident that governments of Muslim countries have been putting a great deal of pressure on America to “take out” Iran’s nuke facilities. What has NOT been pointed out is that these countries, e.g., Saudi Arabia, Jordan, etc., are quite capable of doing it themselves, but want to con the US into doing the dirty work. I gar-on-tee that if we do, they will use act to enrage the ignorant fanatics who are their inhabitants.
It remains to be seen how much longer Americans will put up with this.
In Barry’s Bag of Christmas Tricks
Santa Claus must be American as the Obamas don’t like him
By Judi McLeod
Wednesday, November 24, 2010
It’s coming up to that special time of year so get ready, folks, for Barack’s and Michelle’s Christmas Circus Supreme.
Last year it was the Christmas Eve push for Socialized Medicine on the political front and Mao and transvestite White House Christmas tree ornaments on the cultural front.
It’s Barry’s and Mo’s White House Christmas tree, and they’ll put whatever they want on it even though they do not believe in Christmas.
Santa Claus must be American as the Obamas don’t like him.
There is nothing for pacifist Obama to like about St. (Santa) Nicholas, who once punched the no-Divinity-in-Christ claiming priest Arius right in the face. (See Michael Vores’ description of a Rocky-like St. Nick coming to the defense of St. Athanasius, Pope of Alexandria, Confessor and Doctor of the Church right here on the Vortex.)
Obama’s sneakier style is to insult Americans from the safety of the foreign shores of America’s enemies.
Yet, there was a little less swagger in his gait when Barry S. recently returned from Europe. Being a sort lady gaga of the ever-shifting world of politics comes with its own tiresome turf.
It was really back in those days when Obama was a do-nothing senator that he first let it be known that there is no exchange of Christmas presents in his household.
People Magazine must have thought that people really cared when it divulged that Barack said that he and his
wife Michelle, do not give Christmas or birthday presents to their two young daughters, his way of teaching them “some limits”.
The Obamas don’t give Christmas gifts, but they gift themselves and legions of friends almost every other day.
Perhaps Obama should have extended “some limits” on wife Michelle, who wears $600-a-pair Margieles shoes all to show off red painted toenails.
Wrecking the Christmas of the masses comes straight out of Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. But Rule Number 7 must have gone right over Obama’s head: “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”
Before Obama can drag his demoralization tactics out of the Christmas 2010 goodie bag, let’s have a look at his faithful field of operations: The Theatre of the Absurd.
Theatre of the Absurd Numero Uno: Never stay at home if home is only the White House and you know in your heart of hearts that you are really the uncrowned King of the World.
Besides operating offshore for a good deal of the time comes with the decided advantage of being able to feel so much safer, hurling insults at the very people responsible for the largesse in your nomad life.
From the Theatre of the Absurd comes the rule: Take Your Circus of Traveling Czars With You. That way you can get the much needed morale boost from hearing all the dastardly things being done to America by a
shadow government whose creativity comes from toking in the boardroom.
Spending “quality” time with the Czars cuts you a break from being pointed at the mirror by Michelle and Valerie, and instructed to repeat after them: “I am the most powerful man on earth and no Tea Party’s gonna’ stop me.”
The gig is up on the Theatre of the Absurd, including those romantic little dinners in Chicago. When you lead a life dominated by fomenting for revolution and are steeped in resentment, any romance has got to be of the strictly manufactured kind.
Easy to shoot figurative holes through Obama’s job of saving the world’s masses by trying to have them imprisoned in dreary Socialist camps. Easy, too, to shoot those same holes through Michelle’s chosen “job” of providing 5,000 salad bars for schools when hyper inflation is on its way to the supermarkets. Besides, Mamas and Papas across the fruited plains would be first to tell Michelle that it is not salads at school their kids need but brainfood to counteract the indoctrination they are getting in class.
Meanwhile, it’s coming up to Christmas time when the lady gagas of politics matter the very least.
Can Obama Help Promote Islam on a One-Way Trip to Mars?
Barack & Modern-Liberalism Weighed in the Scales & Found Wanting
By Kelly O'Connell
Sunday, November 21, 2010
It’s true The Obama has been an unmitigated disaster as president. Very few now dispute this fact after the Nov 2nd Massacre. But what does this fact mean in a larger setting? Upon reflection and analysis, Barack’s failure rests at his own feet because he is the current clod in office. But we can’t avoid the larger implication—modern-liberalism itself has been tested and found utterly fraudulent. This is very dangerous as modern-liberal socialism is now our default national policy in all matters, and government actions based upon ignorance and lies can only result in failure and ultimate disaster.
For example, deficit spending is supposedly our main “engine” of economic recovery. It is either effective, or it is not. Yet all results show it’s failed. There are many like examples of Barack making appalling decisions as doomed to fail as Rosie O’Donnell emceeing a Tea Party event. But the more unacceptable fraud is the idea that leftism offers answers for life’s problems. It does not. The sooner we accept this failure, the closer we will be to answering America’s vexing crises.
I. Shortcomings of Obama
Obama’s personality is that of a sassy junior high kid convinced he’s a superman. Like many adults caught in
a stunted adolescent wasteland, Obama’s emotions range somewhere between smug self-infatuation over self-perceived greatness to aggrieved fury over any criticism.
Barack inexplicably developed the conviction he was truly a great man, before even entering the presidency. But where would such an idea come from? One has to dip into the psychology of Marxism and its megalomaniac leaders to perhaps understand this phenomenon.
Obama’s stunning arrogance is illustrated by this quote from a man Barack interviewed for a job and then hired. Barack is said to have claimed:
I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.
Marxism inoculates its followers against a serious study of the doctrines it opposes, such as capitalism, democracy, human rights, religion, etc. It turns these concepts into a joke. Marxism is a monomania, a theory tossing out ridiculously simple and insulting explanations as to how the world works. Man is at the center; there is no God. Economics only concerns splitting a finite pie with everyone equally.
Both Obama and leftism are hopeless duds. The Prophet Daniel interpreted the ghostly writing upon the castle wall in a manner that we can fairly apply to both Barack and his beloved modern-liberalism:
“Here is what these words mean:
Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.
Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.
Peres: Your kingdom is divided
II. Utter Falsity of Leftism
A. Brief History of Modern-Liberalism
Original or “classical liberalism” as a general movement is traced to the Reformation, where the call for freedom rang out from Luther. The notion individual rights exist at all comes from a Protestant reading of the Believer’s individual access to God and His Kingdom. The Bible has a rich tradition of prophets, priests and everyday believers standing against the corrupt authority of King and state. The Natural Law philosophers helped develop this into a modern theory of “rights” which were individual and held against any other power. Finally these rights were enshrined in the British and then American Bill of Rights.
Around the turn of last century socialists began to refer to their movement as “liberalism” which lead to much confusion. Liberalism’s root is “liberty.” But socialism is an anti-liberty movement in which Locke’s freedom-oriented Social Contract is inverted and everyone in society hands over all their rights in exchange for the government taking total control of their lives. Civil rights are also extinguished under such a regime. The Marxist system portrays salvation only occurring in the group. Therefore, Obama and his followers have shown they have no individual love of life, liberty or property rights. In this sense they are not just un-American, but anti-American in their rejection of our core document, the Constitution, claims the government exists to protect our liberties.
B. Profound Flaw in Modern-Liberalism
Socialism is based upon atheistic foundations. If there is no God, then man must create his own strategies for himself. This explains the disaster we see all around. For, as Dosteyevski pointed out—if there is no God, then everything is acceptable. And instead of our society based upon a two-thousand year old Christian traditions, which created the West we enjoy today, we are thrown back upon a reborn paganism in which every answer must come from man (Peter Gay argues the modern world is pagan in nature in his highly influentially The Enlightenment: The Rise of Modern Paganism).
C. Economic Lies & Deficit Spending
Modern socialistic economics theories in America are still deeply influenced by Karl Marx‘s writings, such as Das Kapital & The Communist Manifesto. It is imperative to realize Marx had no formal education in economics, as incredible as this sounds. He was trained in philosophy.
Marxism is built from several basic fallacies. Marx taught:
Wealth is static, meaning there is only a finite amount to go around;
The rich steal their wealth from the workers;
Capitalism was an evil system that would collapse on its own, and after an interlude of socialism would finally become communism;
Religion is a hoax and God didn’t exist;
Human nature is a myth and therefore people are like machines;
The only metric to judge human advancement was by virtue of material wealth; and
The only genuine authority was government.
The impact of Marxism was the most pernicious belief system of the modern age. Put aside the 150-200 million residents murdered in communist countries in the 20th century. On a merely economic analysis, there has never been a successful communist or socialist state economics system. So why has the West been mesmerized by the mirage of socialism for 150 years? This is because Marxism fills the space in people’s minds where religion properly exists.
Failed liberal economics is Keynesian deficit spending, a variation of the doomed command economy. This is the Stimulus bill which Obama so indifferently assembled and then so dishonestly sold as an answer to the nation’s jobs problems. He infamously claimed the entire point was simple spending:
You get the argument, ‘Well, this is not a stimulus bill, this is a spending bill.’ What do you think a stimulus is? That’s the whole point. No, seriously. That’s the point.
Keynesian Economics always fails. The great economist Walter Hazlitt painstakingly disproved Keynes’ magnum opus, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, almost line by line. Hazlitt’s book , The Failure of the “New Economics,” destroyed the fuzzy scholarship of the Keynesian school in one fell swoop. But because deficit spending is part of the new modern financial cult and gives the government great socialistic latitude in intervening in the marketplace, it still retains tremendous support. But make no mistake—socialist economics always leads to poverty.
D. Disastrous Understanding of Leadership
One of the worst aspects of the Obama cult has been his absurd approach to leadership. Barack must honestly believe his every move is the very quintessence of astuteness. He thinks of himself as Lex Animata, the living lawgiver. He thinks, as a Marxist critic of democracy and capitalism, he senses a better way in himself. Strangely, communists are critical of even the tiniest details of the constitutional republican model, and yet have not the tiniest fear of living under even the most complete and powerful Marxist tyranny. Isn’t the remarkable? Yet it is a result of the lack of a realistic view of human nature that socialists cannot assemble an efficient government.
All the “great” Marxists leaders were astounding failures at doing good. After achieving power, Vladimir Lenin decided he hated the peasants and waged war upon them, creating a political famine to starve them out. Then he sent in the army to begin killing these peasant Kulaks. Lenin murdered millions of his countrymen. He invented the labor camp and filled it with his enemies to control them and to provide free labor, or have them killed. Between Stalin and Mao, no less than 150 million innocent citizens were killed through executions, forced famines, and labor camps.
Let’s recall that Obama’s mentor and ghostwriter, Bill Ayers, was in a group who claimed that perhaps 25 million Americans might have to be murdered to bring communism to America.
These “leaders” who promised positive change were just ignorant and evil tyrants, claiming to have perfect knowledge of how to direct hundreds of millions of individuals in all their decisions. But it’s fascinating how Barack seems to have the same decision making style as these great communist frauds.
Obama has many traits in common with these idiotic despots. Barack talks down to the average citizen, boasts and lies constantly, is perpetually ill-informed, makes hasty decisions off the cuff on topics he is illiterate upon, goes against the People’s will, makes epic mistakes and then pretends he is riding monster waves of success, scoffs at critics, repeatedly favors government over the private sector, thinks he is never wrong, is unfazed by the suffering of his people, talks about his political opponents as “enemies,” is isolated, belittles capitalism, longs to takeover huge market sectors when he can barely tie his own shoes, is convinced of his genius as much as any son of Kim il Jong, disagrees with the principles of a constitutional republic, dislikes Christianity, attacks the middle class in his policies, is brutally cynical, misuses the state treasury for his own entertainment, uses thug Chicago styled tactics, loves abortion, acts as if there is no God, is pleased to confiscate other’s property without recompense.
E. Values Disaster
Socialists have a horrible lack of human-enriching values, so their regimes refuse to celebrate the best in humanity. Instead, they always take power from the People in order to build up the state. They allow no crisis to pass without milking it for more power. The ultimate disaster of the Obamatons and others communists is a lack of wholesome ethics. Yet, it is virtue which makes life worth living. But we can see all around us the ugliness of the socialist vision.
III. What Next for America?
The greatest thing to happen in America since the Reagan Revolution is the Tea Party. From this will grow seeds of greatness, but already it has derailed the Obama juggernaut. The future of America will depend upon the Tea Party and its virtuous inclinations, and the blessings of the Most High.
We are now desperately in need of several things. From a civic standpoint we must renew our teaching of American history, especially constitutionalism, our ideas of government and law. We also badly need a new generations of scholars to take up Locke, Lord Coke, the Founders, and studies of the common law, natural law, and the indispensable crossroads of Christianity and government theory.
What is most needed now is a new Great Awakening to sweep across America, and get people’s noses back in Bibles, and their rear-ends back in pews. For only if Americans revisit the source of our unique vision and unearthly power can we ever hope to regain our quickly fleeting greatness.
Obama wants DREAM Act on his desk before year is out
Undocumented youth matter more to the Obama administration than do the sons and daughters of America
By Judi McLeod
Friday, November 19, 2010
President Barack Obama is counting on “undocumented youth” to cover his back during a rush to deliver the DREAM ACT to his desk before the year is out.
And the call has gone out via a sign-on letter under Organizing for America Director Mitch Stewart’s signature on the Internet tonight.
“Add your name to the sign-on letter and show that we will not stop fighting until the DREAM Act is sent to the President’s desk,” states Stewart.
“The President has taken a stand. Now he needs us to get his back.
“This important step forward on immigration reform would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented youth willing to work for a college degree or serve in our armed forces—people who are American in every way but their legal service.
“Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have supported this charge for years—and it would be law today if it weren’t for political posturing in Washington.” (emphasis Stewart’s).
According to OFA “70 percent of voters support passing the DREAM Act and giving these hardworking youth a path forward”.
“Americans do not believe in punishing innocent children for their parents’ actions. We believe in rewarding the folks who work hard to get an education; we believe in honoring the people who make great sacrifice to serve their country.”
“These are principles we take pride in—principles that have made this nation great. And these are principles we need to stand up for today.”
You could have fooled We the People, Mr. Stewart. Legions of native born Americans who worked hard to get an education are now losing homes and jobs.
If the president believes “in honoring the people who make great sacrifice to serve their country,” he was AWOL on Veterans Day.
All veterans got was an email to all on the Internet sent offshore by Michelle Obama.
Undocumented youth matter more to the Obama administration than do the sons and daughters of America.

President Obama has made it clear: He wants Congress to deliver the DREAM Act to his desk before the year is out.
This important step forward on immigration reform would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented youth willing to work for a college degree or serve in our armed forces—people who are Americans in every way but their legal status.
Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have supported this change for years—and it would be law today if it weren’t for political posturing in Washington.
The American people showed this month they were tired of the gridlock—but right now, members of Congress are wondering if people like you are going to hold their feet to the fire.
Stand with President Obama today—and support the passage of the DREAM Act.
We all know that not everyone in Congress agrees on comprehensive immigration reform.
But that is exactly why we must move forward now in areas where there is broad support across the board.
President Obama has already moved ahead, toughening enforcement of the laws on the books. But that alone is not enough. This issue is too important for Congress not to act—especially when 70 percent of voters support passing the DREAM Act and giving these hardworking youth a path forward.
It’s a reform rooted in basic fairness.
Americans do not believe in punishing innocent children for their parents’ actions. We believe in rewarding the folks who work hard to get an education; we believe in honoring the people who make great sacrifices to serve their country.
These are principles we take pride in—principles that have made this nation great. And these are principles we need to stand up for today.
The President has taken a stand. Now he needs us to get his back.
Add your name to the sign-on letter and show that we will not stop fighting until the DREAM Act is sent to the President’s desk:
Thanks for your help,
Mitch Stewart
