The Obama birth certificate controversy may soon be ready to explode, ladies and gentlemen.
Many detractors, to include those of us belonging to the Conservative Refocus organization, web monolith WND, Dr. Jerome Corsi and numerous others have maintained the question of Obama's birthplace, almost from day one, due to the highly questionable nature of the available information.
Our skepticism has often placed us within the line of derision fire to include extraordinary criticism from all political sides with the ever-present charges of racism, etc. In many cases, we have faced whithering fire from even our own Conservative bretheren in the public eye, who dared not touch this issue for fear of "losing credibility."
However, now we are given to understand that the stories from an Obama eligibility defense attorney, on the New Jersey Presidential ballot question, are confirming Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate as a forgery.
In an extraordinary development, the attorney for Obama admitted that the certificate was fake and that it had obviously been overdone for political reasons. The Drudge Report, which is a highly credible website, stated this:
NEW YORK, NY – After a Maricopa County law enforcement agency conducted a six-month forensic examination which determined that the image of Obama's alleged 1961 Certificate of Live Birth posted to a government website in April, 2011 is a digital fabrication and that it did not originate from a genuine paper document, arguments from an Obama eligibility lawyer during a recent New Jersey ballot challenge hearing reveals the image was not only a fabrication, but that it was likely part of a contrived plot by counterfeiters to endow Obama with mere political support while simultaneously making the image intentionally appear absurd and, therefore, invalid as evidence toward proving Obama's ineligibility in a court of law.
Unfortunately, the Obama defense attorney, Alexandra Hill's, seeming obfuscation, in an effort to bolster her client's argument, merely opens up a can of worms that the White House will not be so easily able to steer clear of, from here on out. You see, the White House actually posted this forged birth certificate on their own website just a day or so after the purported certificate was found, and officially indicated it as the authentic certificate, displayed there even to this day.
So, now that an Obama attorney has admitted the available certificate to be a fraud, the question which must be asked, is "where is the real birth certificate? " However, also now, there is a second question which becomes: "Why did the Obama administration lie and present the fraudulent certificate as a true and real artifact on an official government website?" This, indeed, is what we would refer to as a high crime, or misdemeanor at minimum.
Now, experience being the prime teacher in all things, the mainstream media, as a whole, will try to ignore this story until it becomes so large that the media has no choice but to report it. Unfortunately for Obama's media, Drudge and many others now have this story, and Drudge is a powerful web organization which steers hits to the mainstream media websites' news stories far more effectively than any other website in existence.
However, as a concerned citizen, you can now help and even play your own part.
By contacting your local newspaper, be it either from email or phone call, and inquiring as to why there have been few, if any, comprehensive media reports on this latest story. You can call your local TV news broadcast affiliates and ask this question of them, as well. You can share this article, along with many other site's articles, on Facebook and other social media sites, while also emailing this article to your friends. You can include other articles, as backup confirmation; the Tea Party Tribune has an in depth article on the New Jersey Hearing, for instance.
You can also call and email your Senator and Congressman or woman, and inquire as to how this issue will be rectified? This particular matter is a tough quandary for America, all things being equal; however, denying the truth of the issue and acting as if there is no problem and that you can do nothing will only deepen the hole which Nancy Pelosi directly through omission and Harry Reid indirectly as party Senate leader, originally dug when they, through the DNC, certified Obama as being eligible without having seen the traditionally required evidence.
View of Obama's infamous quote 'If I Had a Son, He Would Look Like Trayvon'
By Barry Secrest
As a young man, his life unfolding before him, his latest entry in an April the 7th posting on Facebook stated the following:
"Was told last night that I was the greatest person this kid has ever met...made me feel good =)"
It could have been the last entry 20 year-old John Borek would ever make. His life was nearly taken by a gunshot to the neck near UNC Charlotte at 12:30 am on Sunday April the 8th, not long after his Facebook entry.
The assumed cause of the assault was the result of a late-night attempt to purchase marijuana in a parking lot; however, none have attempted to assess the perpetrator's state of mind, up to this point, which is highly unusual in our media experiences of late.
Johnson of Charlotte is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill or inflict serious injury, possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a handgun by a minor, police said.
He remained in custody at the Mecklenburg County jail early Saturday.
Police have said Borek was shot on the left side of his neck around 12:30 a.m. last Sunday in the parking lot of The Flats at Mallard Creek Apartments, near Mallard Creek Church Road. They said he was visiting friends at the time of the shooting.
On Saturday, Borek was listed in critical condition at Carolinas Medical Center-Main, the hospital said.
A police spokesman said last week that authorities believed the suspect was with another person at the time of the shooting, and they did not believe it was a “random act of violence.”
Then on Friday, police said their investigation showed that Borek and Johnson were meeting each other for an “illegal drug transaction” when Johnson allegedly shot Borek.
Borek is still listed in critical condition, however, we don't yet know the extent of his injuries. But the question that we wonder about is whether or not young Borek was shot due to racial motivations, as predicated by the tensions within the Trayvon Martin case and exacerbated by the Media and the Democrats. In fact, what was Davahughn Johnson actually thinking when he allegedly shot Borek? Did he feel that his young life, as a drug dealer, was perhaps in danger? Was Borek somehow attacking Johnson while seated in his vehicle? Was money and the fact that Borek seemed to have more than Johnson along with Borek's non-ethnicity a contributing factor in this attempt on his life?
Nor do we know for certain how many other such incidents have been played out throughout the United States with deadly results, recently, as the usual suspects continue to parlay racial warfare and animosity on a vulnerable population.
However, the simple truth is that neither the New Black Panthers, nor President Obama, nor any members of the Media, nor the KKK, nor even the Neo-Nazi's have organized and protested in this particular case and in what may have been a deadly, racially motivated crime. Further, we note that Borek, with his tall, slim frame and olive complexion, could seemingly have also been Obama's son; however, the President has yet to respond in that regard, for reasons unknown.
We will keep you posted, while looking forward to the possible appearances of both Jackson and Sharpton, to pray for this young man, purported to be the "Greatest person that someone had ever met," who yet clings to life in a Charlotte Hospital.
But did this crime occur by reason of racial animosity and presidentially heightened tensions as brought on by the Media and the usual suspects?
It could be said by some that the last couple of weeks have been nothing, if not a bizarre collection of Progressive political inanities, at best, in America, while the worst aspects of change we can believe are now coming into its dreaded full fruition, in fact.
It all seemed to have begun, sort of, with the Trayvon Martin-Media Mash v. George Zimmerman episode, which actually started well over a month ago, even with many other things coalescing at the same time. El Presidente', after trying to blame the Republicans and Rush Limbaugh for Obama's own direct and unwarranted attack on the Church in the form of forcing the provisioning of contraceptives, had then moved on to incite a Media Matters attack on Limbaugh himself, which ultimately led to Limbaugh's radio show actually increasing its listenership by up to 60% in some cities.
Ironically, rather than Rush getting the can, somehow, these last few days, we ended up with the mortally wounded reputation of Liberal Bill Maher, along with a completely deleted Left-leaning Chandelier in Keith Olbermann from Current TV, and a disdainfully discarded caustic Progressive in Rosie O'Donnell, who got the can from none other than Queen Oprah, herself.
We then had the NY Times actually manufacturing a new race of man in order in to fully vilify their fellow Democrat shooter, euphemistically being "George the White," who shot "Trayvon the Black," while incidentally sporting the seemingly Semitic last name of Zimmerman, who was actually Hispanic, but who is now what the Times refers to as a White, therefore engendering their actual label of "White Hispanic" (no joke) and this, once again, according to the NY Times. Now, in noting that Zimmerman's mother is Hispanic and his father is White, we simply cannot help but to inform the NY Times that, according to US census traditions and the rules of partus sequitur ventrem, the actual identified race of the child will always follow the Mother, ostensibly making Zimmerman officially Hispanic.
However, if we put that aside, just for a moment, and use just a bit of the New York Times' revisionistic rules, we can then confidently state that Obama, the Alinsky Radical, using the faulty logic of the Times, is actually a Black-White. But, alas, here comes the bad news. In America, this would also mean that we, unfortunately, have yet to install an officially certified Black man into the White House, once again, using only the NY Times revised race rules.
Now....I mean really! We have gone through all of this pain and community organzing angst, race warfare, class warfare, financial upheaval, redistribution, you name it, in having to pick what we un-thought was a black, Neo-Marxist, for our President and yet, according to the New York Times, and while applying either the rules of partus sequitur ventrem, making Obama White, or even the NY Times rules, making Obama Black-White, we still don't have a certified Ebony in the White House, Heaven help us all?
But it gets even worse from there, because, then, True un-BelieversSharpton and Jackson got involved and began inciting the Messiah's masses to a fever-pitch even while Trayvon Martin's resiliently responsible parents were literally having to plead for the Axis Press, El Magnifico and the Democrats to stop the race-baiting, in concert with their also dealing with the terrible loss of a child. The un-President, you see, having noted the chaos unfolding and not wanting to "let a good crisis go to waste," did what any decent, community organizing, Marxist, un-President would do and quickly implied a racist component, by stating:
"If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon"
And whoosh! the fire was raging almost completely out of control, as all of the Left's glowing, demonically red-tinged, eyes now vindictively lasered in on Zimmerman, who not being stupid, fled from the public eye and into hiding, not to be seen again along with an illegal $10,000 Black Panther bounty hanging over his still-scarred head, to boot.
And We Thought Prostitution was Outlawed in DC....
Meanwhile, and even worse, as all of this axial angst was raging in Center Ring, the US Congress stealthily decided that while the Media and everyone else was otherwise engaged, now was as good a time as any to act and actually voted upon and passed a bill that found Obama's "Black-White" hand itching to sign it, no doubt, due to its stark, anti-Constitutional, anti-free speech components.
A fact that's gotten completely lost, with regard to this bill and public attention, is simply this; Trayvon Martin was actually shot dead on February 26, the case then slowly began to come to a public boil on or about March the 7th, which was about the time that this particular bill, H.R. 347, was being signed into law. Labeled as The “Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011,” its core boasts a blatant assault on the First Amendment, which guarantees U.S. citizens the right to freedom of Religion, freedom to peacefully Assemble, freedom of the Press, freedom to Petition, and freedom of Speech, (RAPPS).
You see upon passage of this bill, it actually became a Federal crime to assemble to petition and freely speak out against the government or even a protected person whenever or wherever the Secret Service is also present within the United States.
Currently, there are approximately 4,500 Secret Service agents who are authorized to protect certain persons designated who are at risk, to include in part:
The president, the vice president, (or other individuals next in order of succession to the Office of the President), the president-elect and vice president-elect
Major presidential and vice presidential candidates, and their spouses within 120 days of a general presidential election
Other individuals as designated per Executive Order of the President
So, basically, our Constitution crushing Commissar now has the power to use the Secret Service at his discretion (read: convenience) to silence U.S. citizens and strip them of their most basic Constitutional right--as he sees fit and for his purposes predicated on location and identification .
Now, how in the world did this bill ever make it through the Republican House in order to become law? Well, 164 Democrats voted "Aye." No surprises whatsoever there. But here's the thing that has us fuming:224 Republicans voted "Aye," two voted "Nay," and 42 voted "Abstain."The point here, beyond the quite obvious, is that this law essentially denies several Constitutional rights in one fell swoop, and is certainly not what we have elected our Representatives in Washington to facilitate.
Nor did the American people opt for a collection of Congressional pushovers, including those within the Tea Party, to go and represent them as, in effect, the establishment's "knee-jerk bitches" in Congress, to do with as they so please and at the pleasures of our self-crowned, Un-King. But even worse, going back to the part of the law that states:
"Major presidential candidates and vice-presidential candidates within 120 days of a presidential election (under Secret Service protection)."
This, would in essence, now mean that within approximately four months of an election, whatever you might be doing around either your most liked, or least favored candidates, you best not be protesting or holding up some sort of sign that seems to be castigating a "protected" candidate, or you could find yourself in jail for one year, according to the letter of the law.
The Manchurian Candidate Unveiled
But then, after all of this, believe it or not, things actually got even queerer. You see, after Obama Providentially re-lit the torch of racial fires, it was time to jet off to South Korea and attend a nuclear summit in order to relight the fires of American vulnerability. At the end of the summit, and as the President sat with Puten's Left-Wing lapdog being Medvedev, Obama once again, proving himself to be the penultimate Keen of Keens, let loose a controversial exchange that could eventually spell ultimate doom for his Presidency.
As the two Leaders sat in a nearly concluded public photo session, Obama leaned over and, while assuming that his mic was off, patted the authoritarian Medvedev's hand and stated this:
"This is my last election, After my election, I have more flexibility."
Medvedev replied saying:
"I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir," referring to incoming President Vladimir Putin.
So what exactly did that short exchange mean to we Americans? Well, many could write a book about it, and some probably will, but it goes directly to the hardcore Conservative's main side-argument concerning Obama all along. You see, far too many on the far-right have been calling Obama the Manchurian Candidate, and with those few words from the President, the Manchurian Candidate case has now largely been prescribed, if not consummated.
To explain further, Obama was directly communicating conspiratorially with one who is considered to be an illegitimate, authoritarian leader (by his own people) that Obama as President, could not concede to the Soviets nuclear/missile demands until after the election because, if he did so before, it could effect Obama's chances for being re-elected. This would, therefore, mean that Obama, if elected, would in all likelihood directly affect US National Security in deference to a belligerent state, while even yet governing against both the will and the desires of the American people. Otherwise, why should Obama be concerned about an armament agreement that could positively affect his own re-election?
Barack the Magic( Grand) Dragon: Lives in DC
So, with America already dealing with a race-baiting , Church-hating, Cloward-Piven spending, Un-President, now we are also dealing with one who was in cahoots with a largely belligerent totalitarian regime which, by the way, routinely operates against the will of its people as well. But that wasn't all that we were mindfully observing. You see many of us, after Obama's racial remarks on Trayvon, also rather naturally began watching out for other possible crimes of a racially motivated nature to see how Obama and the Media would respond to those as well, and that's where it gets even more interesting.
Indeed, no, became the answer, because the racial mixtures were all wrong, apparently. In this case, the man beaten and in the hospital was white and the men doing the beating were black. The White House responded with silence.
But there was a second case in which two British students were murdered in Florida, once again, by an "ethnic" who shot them in cold blood as they pled for their lives. But once again, the response from the White House and largely the Media, in this case of a Black on White double murder, was nothing but crickets chirping in unison. So deafening was the silence, in fact, that the UK parents of these young men wrote three letters to the White House requesting at least some words of condolence based on the President's prior statements concerning other such crimes on his most favored race. However, the White House did not deign to respond at all.
Or what about the plight of a young white female student in Texas who was assaulted by a group of teenage Blacks taunting the 13 year-old girl, and other students for being White. The school responded by stating that the gym was off-limits and no one should have been there. In other words, it was the young girls fault, prompting the parent to actually pull his daughter from the school in fear for her safety. Obama's response? Nothing.
Or there was the brutal savaging of two elderly grandparents in Oklahoma, one murdered and raped, the other beaten to the point of hospitalization by a 20 year-old, once again, who was Black. Did Obama sound off on this possible racial crime? Complete and total silence, once again.
Meanwhile, Back at the Hypocryphal...
In fact, this was but a sampling of many similar crimes, which have recently occurred in the US, and yet all the usually very vocal suspects simply appear to not even care. Is this by design or is there yet another double standard at play? But the hypocrisy of the Left and its Leaders did not end even here, as the Trayvon Martin saga continued and even intensified with the Leftist media now utilizing fraudulently doctored audio tapes in order to further their extreme racial animosity agenda, even while completely ignoring the truth of the previously described crimes.
In this particular instance, the 911 call, from Zimmerman, was edited by NBC in order to make Zimmerman appear as if his suspicions were being aroused predicated only on the fact that Martin was black. Zimmerman had actually volunteered the statement "He looks black" to the 911 operator according to NBC. But, what actually happened was that the 911 operator asked Zimmerman the question: "Is he White, Black or Hispanic?" Thereby prompting Zimmerman's statement: "He looks Black."
According to the Washington Posts' Eric Wemple, NBC News had, once caught by those in the Conservative Media, started an internal investigation into why the Zimmerman 911 audio was selectively edited by NBC apparatchiks. In our commentary in reporting the incident, I had stated on April the 1st:
"This will most likely end up with NBC later coming out with a conclusion of "it was simply journalistic oversight," with NBC taking pains to "make sure this doesn't happen again," as if it doesn't happen every single minute, at this Nimble Broadcasting Communist operation. I also pointed out "Remember, you read our prophetic conclusions as to what will actually happen, here first."
During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret. We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers.
So, can we cook or what? Incidentally, on April the 7th, we learned that the unnamed senior producer had been fired by NBC.
Obama and the...Uh... Supremes
But, as the angst in the Martin case began to slide slowly into the near-background, another set of events was unfolding soon thereafter, which saw our intrepid, race-baiting President, actually shake the foundations of the US Government, even after already having cracked the foundations of US racial harmony, mangling the US economy, and mutating America's Medical system, much like a distant nuclear blast, in each case. Indeed, it's the fallout that eventually gets you.
Obama, in a press conference on April the 2nd, had actually begun a series of ad hominem attacks on the US Supreme Court, which started by him stating that he was confident that the Supreme Court would uphold the Healthcare law, because the mandate was in accordance with "uh....precedent out there" and because "it's Constitutional." Powerfully empty arguments indeed, it should be noted.
Obama further stated, "That's just not my opinion, by the way, but that's based upon legal experts across the ideological spectrum...uh...including two very conservative appellate court justices, uh....that said this wasn't even a close case." "Indeed, many would agree with the President that it's not a close case, but for differing reasons that go towards the prevailing initial arguments of the Justices." Those arguments being, that if the Government can make you buy a health policy and call it interstate commerce, where is it even possible to draw the line in future possible government mandates?
Obama: That's just not my opinion, by the way, but that's based upon legal experts across the ideological spectrum...uh...including two very conservative appellate court justices, uh....that said this wasn't even a close case."
The President then went through a litany of arguments trying to resell the mandate based upon availability of healthcare and the fact that 2.6 million Americans now have coverage that ordinarily wouldn't have had coverage. Obama also repeatedly referenced a "lack of healthcare." When, in fact, the Obamacare mandate, rather than focusing on ways to provide affordable insurance coverage to the uninsured, has actually focused on mangling the policies of those who already had coverage and who were exceedingly satisfied with it.
Obama went further in noting that many people are now receiving preventative care who were not in the past, while failing to note that preventative care measures, especially for women, have been scaled back considerably in the form of recommended intervals for PAP screenings and mammograms.
But finally, Obama stated that he hoped that the Supreme Court would not take the unprecedented, extraordinary step, of overturning a law that was passed by "a ...uh....strong majority of a Democratically elected Congress." And in this particular Obama point, we wonder if Obama believes that the Supreme Court is totally unaware of the sausage making aspect of getting this particular law to pass, behind closed and locked doors where the opposition party had absolutely no input whatsoever and bribes were used continually to gain approval from unbelieving moderate Democrats, never mind that there was certainly no strong majority, but just the opposite.
Obama didn't stop there, however, when he sharply criticized what the Court might do by calling out Conservative Pundits who take issue with bench activism. The plain fact is that the Supreme Court is not making law, and certainly isn't being activist, when it rules on the constitutionality of such laws by following the law, it's simply doing its job as one of the three separate but equal powers of a government, previously dedicated to the premise of checks and balances.
The Jawbone of an Ass
The People's response to Obama's unwitting outrage was overwhelming, to put it mildly, but then and finally, another branch of government would respond and not a little to the people's delight.
Now, we all know, very well, that Obama's greatest talents appear to be largely concentrated within his jawbone appendage. But we wondered if Obama's skill-set, being of a remarkably singular nature, had sparked a judicial crisis of sorts? In a report in which Shannon Bream of Fox News contributed, we then saw that non other than a Federal Appeals Court has taken issue with Obama's extreme rhetoric:
A federal appeals court is striking back after President Obama cautioned the Supreme Court against overturning the health care overhaul and warned that such an act would be "unprecedented."
A three-judge panel for the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday ordered the Justice Department to explain by Thursday whether the administration believes judges have the power to strike down a federal law.
A letter from the court instructs the Justice Department to provide an explanation of "no less than three pages, single spaced" by noon on Thursday.
But it didn't end there. According to CBS news, a report filed by Jan Crawfordpoints to an escalating battle between the White House and the judiciary:
Mr. Obama all but threw down the gauntlet with the justices, saying he was "confident" the Court would not "take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress."
Overturning a law of course would not be unprecedented -- since the Supreme Court since 1803 has asserted the power to strike down laws it interprets as unconstitutional. The three-judge appellate court appears to be asking the administration to admit that basic premise -- despite the president's remarks that implied the contrary.
According to Crawford, a separate but related healthcare mandate case was being tried when a Lawyer from the Justice Department, in the course of his arguments before the court, apparently bridged the gap in such a way that actually forced the Appeals Court Judge to interrupt as follows from Crawford's report:
Appeals Court Judge Jerry Smith immediately interrupted, asking if DOJ agreed that the judiciary could strike down an unconstitutional law. The DOJ lawyer, Dana Lydia Kaersvang, answered yes -- and mentioned Marbury v. Madison, the landmark case that firmly established the principle of judicial review more than 200 years ago, according to the lawyer in the courtroom. Smith then became "very stern," the source said, telling the lawyers arguing the case it was not clear to "many of us" whether the president believes such a right exists.
Smith, a Reagan appointee, went on to say that comments from the president and others in the Executive Branch indicate they believe judges don't have the power to review laws and strike those that are unconstitutional, specifically referencing Mr. Obama's comments about judges being an "unelected group of people."
America in Retrograde
The thing to remember, within all of this, is that while Obama may seem to believe that he is the supreme potentate with regard to US procedure in all things, the truth speaks to a far different picture. The US has, in fact, three separate branches of government, each being fully equal in power to the other, so that a balance of power continually exists, on behalf of the people.
With the President's recent rhetoric in challenging the American people on the basis of Class, Race and even economic welfare, Obama has apparently decided to take one step further and now challenge an equal branch of the US government. Incidentally, the US Supreme Court in its history has actually overturned over 1,539 laws in total, which is a thing that Obama, apparently is unfamiliar, despite his "alleged" credentials as a Constitutional law expert.
Now, as remarkable as it may seem, all of these events unfolded and came to a head in only a scant seven days, all at the hands of a radical sitting President of the United States. This resultantly should cause a symphony of head scratching to occur at the outrageous implausibility of it all, if nothing else.
However, the simple fact is that with these last seven day, and after four years of Obama as president, the US has plunged backwards, perhaps even a generation or more, with regard to virtually every sector of American Society. From race, class and even political ideology to poverty, wealth and even education. No province of American Exceptionalism has gone undamaged, virtually no sector of the US economy has seen any improvement and absolutely no American has gone unblemished at the ravages that Obama's unbelievable transformation has wrought.
People who have never thought about these things, as ascribed before, are now thinking about them, and meaningfully, but not necessarily in the best of ways.
On returning from a business lunch in the early afternoon, I had just merged onto the freeway loop that circles around uptown Charlotte, approaching from the northern side. Flicking on the radio, there was a fifteen-year old from the rustic mountain town of Floyd, Virginia, speaking to Rush Limbaugh, on WBT, concerning America's free market economy and how it was quickly being eroded away into nothing much more than a collectivist experiment into poverty.
As the young man spoke, an image of the esoteric town of Floyd flickered across my memory, recalling small groups of bluegrass and folk musicians peppered all about the town, playing for any and all who cared to listen on a crisp early-autumn evening, both tie-dyed hippies and overall clad countryfolk co-existing meaningfully in the throes of both music and American culture.
Drifting quickly back again to the wise youngster's voice, his subjectivity reminding me a great deal of my own young son's of about the same age, he was highlighting a growing concern for America's future. As I listened to the two discuss America's current generational quandary on the radio, I glanced up at the Charlotte skyline, my vehicle describing a long, lazy arc around the metropolis; uptown buildings leaping from a lush canopy of trees. My gaze returned to the freeway long enough to verify where I and the other vehicles were. I glanced up at the sky scrapers again, consternated that something very familiar was missing. My eyes darted cautiously across the skyline trying to find this missing symbol that should have been embedded deep in the heart of one of America's largest financial centers, and yet the expected elements, long a familiar sight, simply weren't there.
I Applied a bit of logic and reran the mental sequence back through twice while quickly changing lanes away from an erratically driven car from New York. The big Dodge engine meanwhile grumbled at being impeded by some tiny little 2-Liter upstart. Reengaging my random access memory, I was trying to remember another time in the past when the reassuring icons of American industry had been absent, but was drawing a complete blank. You see, the things that were missing were the telltale skycranes that would normally tower out of the Cityscape, often even in multitudes, across the largest and wealthiest city in North Carolina.
Nothing of any note, it would seem, was being constructed for the first time in a very long slice of Charlotte's storied history, that being one of outrageous growth.
Literally unfortunate it is, it would seem, that ours is not the only city being unable to boast that ever-familiar symbol of growth, in America. This particular story in fact, is being repeated in city after major city all across America, even as those in power continually whisper soothing rejoinders of how things are getting better and will be great again, and soon.
But haven't we been hearing this fable for over three long years now, and will we be forced to yet hear this same mantra for another four years? Especially after also being repeatedly told that America can no longer be the world's economic engine that it was.
Change We Can Hardly Believe.....
After repeated and devastatingly radical administrative moves over the past three years, the defining note in the final year for Obama's term is the fact that there will be an election held in a relatively scant, eight months. This led us to wonder exactly how it is, after a decidedly miserable job of managing America's success as a nation, many continue to think that Obama will win the day at election, predicated only on the President's melanin content and a large number of dubious, at best, protestations of unfortunate good intent that went terribly awry.
So, indeed, why is it that we think both Obama and the Democrats face a scorched earth, uphill battle in the impending 2012 election, while many, many others seem to not?
Here are our Top-Ten arguments against the predominant belief that Obama will manage to rebalance the updated US crown as Leader of the Flee World upon his messianic cranium, even though it brims over with the overwhelming detritus of Progressive mush.
10 Obama's Saul Alinsky Radicalism
In 2008, the Mainstream Media completely failed in their duty to report on Obama and fully vet his past, so that America could make an informed decision on a candidate who could, admittedly, electrify a fawning audience with nothing much more than the crease in his pants. In fact, the Axis Press actually took extreme pains to cover up and defend the Senator from Chicago's many nefarious associations, including extreme-Left groups, unapologetic terrorists, several very shady business associations, and even avowed Black Racists, but it only started there.
The powerful point that none should forget is simply this: Saul Alinksy wrote the book, "Rules For Radicals" and dedicated the book to Satan as being the first successful community organizer in human history. Which is about all most of us need to know with regard to who and what actually inspires Obama's fealties. Suffice it to say, the Conservative media has now done a thorough job of explaining Obama's radicalism to the American people, and just this fact alone would tend to weigh heavily against most candidate's presidential aspirations. However, this faulty footing then also points to the bellwether of the President's consistent failure on behalf of the American people....
9 Obama's Denial of American Exceptionalism
"America is different from other nations," a statement heard many times in Right-Wing circles, and while American Progressives will pooh-pooh the statement almost every single time, most nations across the globe would actually agree, if not for the same reasons. However, America is not different due to our DNA or intelligence, nor necessarily to our culture or even our wealth of under-utilized natural resources. Our landmass is lesser than many nations, our population ranks a distant third to super-populated India and China. So, what exactly is it that allows our nation to provide fully 1/4th of the world's economy with only 1/20th of the world's population?
There is but one easy answer to that question, and it's a very powerful one pointing to the US Constitution, The Bill of Rights, and a populace completely saturated in the cause of Liberty and the wisdom of Judeo-Christian ethos from birth. This Liberty actually bequeaths the foundation of governance, not to the pale and stunted functionaries of the political Elite, but rather into the people's robust but ready hands and away from a centralized core of an overbearing oligarchy.
Now, you will never hear this President speak, to any length, on the virtues of American Exceptionalism, and there is definite reason for this, which leads us to number eight:
8 Obama's Belief in Globalism
Obama actually believes in a New World Orderin which America would surrender its sovereignty to a centralized world government where all the former national rules would not necessarily apply. In fact, America is seen by most Globalists as the final impediment to a one-world government, capable of dominating all the other nations, an impediment due only to the dual-pronged strength of the US economy and unmatched military might. Obama fully believes himself to be the first post-American President and fully intends to redistribute America's great wealth, ad infinitum, until very little of it remains.
When actually speaking on America to the world, Obama will tell you that America is exceptional, however, "only in the same way that Great Britain is exceptional to the Brits, or Greece is exceptional to the Greeks."
Not exactly the words of a dedicated One Nation Leader, it should be noted, and the American people are beginning to finally see this fact, even while Obama, mindful of his patriotic deficiencies, still can't adopt the language of the Right to any meaningful degree, which leads us to his next great problem:
7 Obama's Identity Crisis
Quite frankly, Obama can often be seen to vacillate across a wide range of subjects simply because his belief system is built upon the leaky framework of a specific disbelief in American values. For instance, prior to the Gulf disaster, Obama had actually stated that he intended to pursue an intensification of America's oil-drilling activities, only to accomplish a complete 180 degree "knee-jerk turnabout" and shut most off-shore drilling down right after the mysterious Gulf disaster.
But it doesn't end with Obama's energy/comedy skits, because on virtually every campaign promise, Obama has reneged on his earlier and far loftier visions. His three year attack on Capitalism has only been surpassed by a fascist favoritism to certain high-end Left-Wing capitalists subject to favorable Union affiliations or future Campaign donations. His views on ending America's wars were quickly co-opted by an expensive attack on Libya, where no American interest exists. Obama's flip-flopped Egypt policy resulted in the Egyptian government's fall into the hands of Islamic sectarianists, only destabilizing the region even further and placing one our closest ally, and the only true Mideast Democracy, being Israel, in extreme peril.
Obama's ongoing crisis of identity can be fully accredited to his primary function of resisting essentially all things Conservative and logical. His politics are built, not on rock-solid principle, but rather on the faulty foundation of American revulsion, if not aversion, which leads us into a root identity that promises to be the failed key of this Pandora's-box-Presidency:
5 Obama's Eco-Marxist War on American Energy
Ironic, isn't it, that While Obama largely sees the free market as an impediment to his overall goals, he will often use facets of the free market to elevate his own rather obtuse agenda items. From loans to Brazil's Petrobas, so that "America will become one of Brazil's biggest oil buyers," to Obama's failed energy loans to Solyndra Solar and others to the tune of billions wasted, Obama will continually make such outrageous decisions in furtherance of his imbecilic "Green Energy For America" policy and his pursuit of the ever elusive Imagifuel. Obama's Energy Secretary Chu was recently drilled in front of Congress on his stated predilection for a European-styled $10 per gallon gasoline for America. When pressed, Chu stated that he had, at one time, held those beliefs, but now believed that he was mistaken. Ah yes, when caught under the bed, it's best to feign repentance, as they say.
Indeed, Mr. Chu's repentance doesn't end with gasoline, Obama fully intends to continue the shutdown of coal mines, restrict oil drilling on public lands, and halt or slow permitting for American oil rigs in the Gulf. One of Obama's biggest energy mistakes was his "NO" decision on the trans-Canadian XL oil pipeline. While virtually every Republican and most Democrats in the House were all for limiting our dependence on Mideast oil by approving of the XL pipeline, Obama nixed the program as "needing more research."
Ah yes, the dreaded "research" decision, which can only begot more negative research decisions, as America's economy teeters ever closer to the edge. However, Obama was quick to run to the extreme southern leg of the already started "US portion" of the pipeline, as America's gaze turreted sternly in his direction, noting the loss of up to 20,000 jobs. Obama's vow to clear out the red tape and get the pipeline going immediately left many of us to wonder if perhaps one of Obama's multiple personalities was close to giving in to the American people and allowing the pipeline to go through. One of him is, in fact, the only one blocking it in the first place, which therefore leads us to the next sin, being:
4) Obama's War on Common Sense and the Truth
But as gasoline quickly moves its way to $ 5 per gallon, Obama's energy policies have been laid bare for everyone to view, along with most of his agenda, and the consensus is increasingly not too good for the President. From the Cap and Trade "global warming" fiasco, to the failed GM "Fred Flintstone" Ya-Volt, over-regulating banks, to quantitative easing, you name it, Obama has shown himself to be about as effective as chicken-poop on a pump handle when it comes to solving any of America's real problems.
Heightening energy woes, economic woes, racial problems, class envy, housing woes, banking woes: Throw a stick, hit a problem, and you will find Obama's name etched across the problem in either large or small letters. And if it wasn't him, it was one of his Progressive minions acting on his behalf.
The actual truth in America's energy reserves tells another story altogether from Obama's. In fact, America holds within its borders over one trillion barrels of accessible oil, easily capable of fueling America for the next 200 years. From the ANWR and north Slope in Alaska, the US outer continental shelf formations, the Green River formation in Wyoming, the Dakota's Bakken formation and many others, some yet to be discovered, America has no true energy problem. America does, however, have an Eco-Marxist energy problem in accessing the oil and penetrating though the lies, and Obama is the Titular Head of both, leading us to the next big problem being:
3 Obama's War on the US Constitution
"What's frustrated people, is that I haven't been able to force Congress, to implement every aspect of what I said of 2008" "Well, you know, it turns out that...Uh...our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change, that I would like sometimes" ~Barack Hussein Obama, February,2012
Indeed, the proliferation of Constitutional attacks by Obama could fill volumes, and could easily spill this column over into a epic rivaling "War and Peace" in the volume's thickness and scale, and in only a scant three years. But reading the embedded meaning within the words above points to a President who sees the US Constitution as an impediment to his notion of radical change. Obama, rather than having a US Constitution predicated on Negative rights aimed at what the government can't do, which is good, would rather have a list of positive rights indicating what the governmentcan do for you,meaningwhat it can also do to you. This hearkens back to Reagan's famous quote of the nine most dreaded words in the english language:
"I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help."
The question, therefore, is "what has Obama done that actually stays well within the bounds of the US Constitution?" Here is where this line of thinking bears scrutable fruition on a scale that is not insurmountable, sad though it is, and its rooted in Obama's transformational values, pointing to:
2) Obama's War on American Culture
On the eve of Obama's winning of the 2008 Presidential election, Obama stated this:
Little did America know the form of change Obama had in mind for it at the time. During Obama's entire term, his Presidency has been nothing if not a grand Leftist orgy dedicated to the distant drumbeats of class warfare, class envy and even race warfare. Concerning racial inequality, Obama's stealthily contrived angst has highlighted a concerted soft-war on racial harmony in America. When most Americans naively thought that their elevation of the first black President into office would signal an end to racism in America as it had been known, little did they understand that one of the primary tools of a Community Organizing Radical was the Left-Wing artifice of race baiting.
Obama, in fact, was not at all about recognizing how a large number of non-ethnic Americans elevated him into his office, but rather Obama seemed to seethe in anger at the injury of those other Colonial racists who failed to vote for him. From an Obama Department of Justice, whose impetus would drop all Federal cases against Blacks who participated in the voter intimidation of non-ethnics, to actually suing States for failing to coddle illegal aliens according to Federal law. The ostensible reasoning, in this case, being that the states in question harbored a racial bias against Hispanics. The Obama White House has, in truth, been anything but blind to the question of melanin content in the Civil Society.
However, the war on American culture didn't stop there, the ridiculous Stimulus act, as proffered by George Soros, was not an economic tool designed to stimulate American business and create jobs, as touted, but rather it was a US Government engineered effort at propping up Unions, State Government employees and the Workers Party in one of the darkest hours of economic blight since the Great Depression, to the tune of $ 1 trillion dollars. In addition, while adding more debt, to the tune of $ 5 trillion dollars, which is more than all other US Presidents combined, Obama also presided over the first time in US History that America lost it triple-A bond rating.
The simple fact is that short of volume whose size of Obama's crimes against America could easily compare to that of the 2,700 page 2010 Affordable Healthcare Act, which leads us to Obama's number one reason for being unelectable in 2012:
So, what happens when you take the number one healthcare delivery system in the world and deliver it over to an outrageous grouping of ideological Marxists and Socialists Democrats? Obamacare is the unfortunate answer. Despite Obama's having run against a single payer mandated system in 2008 in order to disingenuously avail himself of the Presidential election, the President did a complete and telling 180 degree turnabout after his election, in order to put the authoritarian healthcare mandate in place.
Passing a bill that few had read and even less fully understood, even to this day, the affordable healthcare act would finally mark the Obama administration's main Presidential calling card in 2012, that being an executive branch wholly dedicated to governing against the will of the people. The simple fact of healthcare totalitarianism, even outside of all of the other damaging evidence, points to an authoritarian Obama prefecture being saturated in the ideals of Marxism and economic lunacy. The Axis press and Obama's minions will tell us that, despite nearly two-thirds of an angry America being completely against Obamacare, the President remains popular and will probably be re-elected, to which we can only say: Indeed, he might.
This, despite the carnage of Obamacare's having been ravaging an unsure economy for two long years now, while already being re-tabulated as to the costs, which have doubled to over 1.76 trillion from the earlier estimates, laying the porn of Obamacare waivers deftly aside, even. Far worse for Obama, and despite whatever findings the Supreme Court arrives at, America is already seeing a vast receding tide of American healthcare quality across a wide range of fronts. This recession of quality far too much resembling that of the telltale signs of a figurative tsunami setting up to crash onto an already wounded America, the impending crisis to be laid at the feet of the man whose name it balefully bears.
Obamacare will most likely fail, as will Obama's re-election. Disregard all of this evidence as presented only in deference to the fiction that is Obama's American legacy.
And watch out for those increasingly elusive skycranes.....
