By Barry Secrest
In 1783, after having successfully won America's independence from her tyrannical occupiers, George Washington resigned his post as commander in chief of all American forces.
At the time, many who stood within the halls of power in the new nation implored Washington to stay on and rule as a people's appointed monarch of sorts. George Washington, being the ever wise leader and an ardent foe of governments styled after authoritarian systems, would have nothing of it.
The nation's first leader went on to unify the political divisions that existed at the time of the new government's forming and presided over the Constitutional convention of 1787, producing what is inarguably one of the greatest documents in the history of self-governance, the US Constitution. Greatly respected although hesitant, Washington would go on to become the first President of the United States in 1789 and would head the fledgling US government until leaving office with the government firmly established but appropriately limited, in 1799.
Throughout George Washington's self-limited two terms as Commander in Chief, the first President never felt himself qualified to serve as the Chief Executive of the United States, this despite the fact that he himself might have been one of only a few men in the nation immune and not seduced by the massive powers granted by the office.
Reproof Where Reproof is Due
Only history and divine providence had produced the leader that the nation so terribly needed at both the exact time and the exact place where few if any others would have proved both adequate and still humbled at the sheer magnitude of the task.
Fast forward to what many have called the post-modern America of today and we find a leadership wholly at odds with what George Washington both espoused and represented. For example, Washington would have never sought to blame the state of governmental disrepair and extraordinary monetary deficits on the previous occupiers in power, nor would Washington have ever noted that his election would serve to calm the bestormed seas from their supposed rising.
However US history is replete with leaders who came and went as the needs of both the people and the nation required of the time. During the days after Washington's relinquishment of power, John Adams would be elected. Adams was a man who was no more jealous of the power of his office, in relation to the people, than his predecessor and was a fierce advocate of rule by the people.
Following Adams was Thomas Jefferson, a brilliant thinker and inventor and yet another fierce advocate to the power of the rule of law rather than those holding such power. Jefferson was also, not coincidentally, the original author of the Declaration of Independence and a man not all excited in the delivering of speeches to his constituents.
Following Jefferson was James Madison, who established the powerful Bill of Rights as amendments to the US Constitution, and a slew of leaders after these, who set goals so lofty of the office, that few other nations' leaders could ever hope to even come close to attaining, either the honor of the office, or the power it engendered.
At least not then.
Would America have become the nation that she is today without the bedrock of leaders who laid the foundations of both process and strict procedural customs now observed under a formerly impregnable rule of law? Doubtful and yet, history had provided an exceptional nation with thoroughly exceptional leaders from the dawning of the nation to her seemingly quick decline being felt in this present day.
Welcome Back Carter
In fact, the only other leader in our generation who presided over and gave into a terrible decline was of the same ideological bent as the one currently holding office, and is even now in fact an ardent defender of the same suspect ideologies.
Peer thoughtfully into the annals of a severely damaged America of today, and we find a nation seemingly embroiled in a loss of confidence. Stock Market teetering, credit rating impaired to a AA status, fewer employed now than in late 2008, poverty and hunger more prevalent now than at any time in the last 50 years, America finds itself limping forward unable to gain any meaningful momentum.
Her greatest accomplishment in recent past? The death of a terrorist, the passage of an act which puts 1/6th of the entire economy under government control in the form of nationalized healthcare, and a financial act that has proven disastrous to businesses needing capital to expand.
Overseas, for the nation, America's condition fairs not much better.
The nation has seen nearly all of its Mideast embassies come under flag-burning protests, fatal assault, or threats of violence in a paradigm camouflaged by a sycophantic Fourth Estate. Conditions in reality being painted the exact opposite of what they would normally appear.
America's loss of wealth and influence can be directly tied to the downgrading of her people's income, which is monumentally lower than in 2008 and her military having been embroiled in a tug-of-war between those who wish to remain mighty and those who pine for a self-imposed redistribution of military equality among nations.
"If They Bring a Knife to the Fight, We Bring A Gun" ~B. Obama
Indeed, bringing a gun to a knife fight seems only appropriate for the nations domestic endeavors and only acceptable for those currently in power.
The nation is now in need of a maturity undesirous of public adulation or acclaim, and a mindset most attuned to the solving of problems rather than creating them. Since most of America's problems appear centered on the creation of wealth and prosperity, rather than its sequential degradation, the people need an ardent defender of those principles that made America the wealthiest and most prosperous of all nations rather than a detractor seeking change wholly alien to what has truly made America work.
Proudly laying fallow in the wallows of redistributional excess only detracts from the nation's competitiveness, and surely does not magnify it. If history has always provided what America has always needed, then the choice that lays before the American people is almost painful in its overall simplicity.
On the one hand we have an applicant with a record of undeniable success in the arena of creating wealth equating to jobs, and in the sector of repairing damage equating to the impending collapse by a colossal debt unimaginable in its breadth.
The nation is undergoing a severe decline of wealth, Liberties and individual determination.
On the other hand we have an incumbent with a rare expertise in delivering the platitudes of potential never realized, and an icon of the enduringly idle. An elocutionist of the grandest order whose fails to inspire even the military of which he directly leads. A man whose record and words suggests an acumen of direct opposition to the first leader of this nation and his successors, where service within the framework of the founding documents seems more a labor in deference to antiquity rather than a pursuit of the highest honor.
Redistributing the Vote
It's come down to a radical community organizer who despises the attainment of wealth versus a traditional Conservative capitalist who desire nothing but to engender prosperity. Many of us, in our astonishment, can't even imagine how these many others could even ruminate over such a choice, but many others they obviously do, so who wins this contest which will determine America's course for the foreseeable future?
The polls appear to be in a dead heat, with Electoral College models alarmingly dotting the media landscape almost as profusely as columnized odes to the greatness of Obama. What does it all mean? The answer lies not so much in the general election polls which, while more or less even, conveniently leave out a gapingly important element.
Everything changed with the 2010 election and the resurgence of Conservatism.
To explain just a bit further, general election polls historically utilize the most recent main election, in this case, 2008.
Indeed, this age-old model might work in most normal election periods but the political changes that occurred in 2010 were monumental, in scope. Over 675 state legislatures changed hands to the Conservatives in 2010, a thing not seen in over 70 years of American politics, not to mention the powerful Tea Party's influence on both political parties and their rephrasing of the issues.
This landscape altering change is not being accounted for in the polls, which means that the apparent dead heat between candidates is falsely skewed over to Obama and the Democrats' favor.
This miscalculation oversamples Democrats by anywhere from 8% to as much as 16% towards a Left-Wing advantage that simply does not exist, in reality, which brings us to an arguable truth that most within the media simply do not wish to see.
Please Stop Hyperventilating...
In order to see the difference, below is a chart detailing the Blue states for the Democrats and red states for the Republicans after the 2008 election:
Now compare the above 2008 chart with the below post-2010 election chart:
The changes in the respective party make-up is beyond remarkable. What you are seeing is a rejection of the Obama regime's "Transformation of America" and things have only gotten worse from there, since 2010.
In Fact, the states changing from Blue to Red, for the 2012 election, will most likely include the following electoral votes:
- North Carolina 15
- Florida 29
- Virginia 13
- Ohio 18
- Colorado 9
- Iowa 6
- Wisconsin 10
- Pennsylvania 20
A total pick-up for the Republicans of at least 120 electoral votes, well enough in addition to the 206 which the Liberal media is stating for Romney and easily beating the 270 needed for a Romney win.
Make no mistake, as in the 2010 election there were some serious surprises, and so will there be in 2012, a thing not easily accounted for by typical election models.
The polls have simply not been recalculated for the severe changes wrought in the 2010 election.
Romney will, most likely, break through 300 electoral votes and win the Presidential match, with Obama gaining no better than an electoral count in the mid 200's at best.
By the way, this website also predicted the 2010 result where many others did not.
However, your vote is now imperative and the final chapter, in this unfortunate sequence of events for America, ends with you, the voter.
Make it count.
When we look into virtually every sector, every walk of our lives as Americans--our religion, economy, race, family, healthcare, income, housing...
Not one single part of our lives has been left untouched or unaffected in one way or another, a problem soon to be corrected by the People's mandate.~9/5/10- Conservative Refocus, When Rising Tide Becomes Torrent
Update: Or....maybe not.
October 28th, 2012
Obama's job approval has plunged tremendously in just three days.
But what could it be that has done this to Mr. Obama? Is it the wonderful economy that the media and the President insist we Americans are now enjoying and should be everlastingly thankful for?
Maybe it's the massive increase in gas prices that seem to be gyrating up and down due to uncertainty in the marketplace, but wait, that was only a concern to the media in the Bush years when the prices were about half what they are at present.
Or, maybe it's the Democracy that's blooming to such a degree in the Mideast, that virtually every American embassy has seen US flags burned under a looming threat of violence in the last 45 days.
Perhaps it was the massive plunge in the stock market over the last seven days that did it.
However, we have seen all of these things to one degree or another in the last four years, but what have we not seen? Well, there is the matter of an embassy staff in Benghazi who were caught up in a terrorist attack nightmare that went on for almost 12 hours and who were completely ignored.
Four of those were killed, including two Special Ops heros who disobeyed orders from the top and rushed to the staff's aid, which included one very reputable Ambassador and his top staff aid, who are now also dead.
The military had two destroyers sitting off the coast of Libya, and at least three fast reaction forces only hours away from where the incident took place. One team was only several miles away.
Emails have surfaced from insiders which prove that virtually every single member of Obama's White House Staff, including those at the US State Department, knew that the terrorist strike was not a mob uprising, which had been the White House talking point from day one. These emails also prove that the White House, in fact, knew that the assault was taking place and the fact of it had not been squirreled away somewhere, within the chain of command.
Despite repeated pleas for help to US officials, someone at the very top of the command chain refused to offer or allow any assistance.
The CIA has stated that no one in that organization denied help to the Benghazi staff.
The US military cannot currently move without executive approval.
The State Dept, despite its top leaders' repeated requests for relief, was denied any help from the military by the executive branch of the government.
No one, in fact, came to these mens' aid, and now they're dead. Indeed, some military leaders tried to come to the aid of the Benghazi mission, however one of those has been relieved of his command, as a field General, for trying to take decisive action rather than waiting for help from on high. There are rumors that perhaps "un-Obama-approved help" has also stricken a Navy Admiral from his powerful strike team command.
While all of this was going on, the repeated theme from Obama and his staff has been: "It was a video that caused it." In fact, the man who supposedly released the video was locked up on trumped-up charges and remains there to this day.
Even worse, America has heard, and is aware of, the fact that all of this unfolded on video shot by a drone circling overhead while being watched by the top brass at the very peaks of government.
No one lifted a finger.
Obama, meanwhile, jetted off to Vegas and had a grand old time, while the bodies of the dead Americans were being readied for transport back to the US.
So, now the below post makes a great deal more sense than what you've been seeing and hearing from the greatest part of the Mainstream Media at large:
In the three-day period ending on Oct. 23, says Gallup, 53 percent said they approved of the job Obama was doing and 42 percent said they did not.
- On Oct. 24, that dropped to 51 percent who said they approved and 44 percent who said they do not.
- On Oct. 25, it dropped again to 48 percent who said they approved and 47 percent who said they do not.
- On Oct. 26, it dropped yet again to 46 percent who said they approved and 49 percent who said they did not.
So, maybe a great many Americans are now wondering how Obama might have responded if they, themselves, had been part of the Benghazi staff which was completely ignored.
Obama stated he would hunt the men that did this down, and yet the lead perpetrator has been traveling around and appearing on tv networks throughout the Muslim world as a hero.
He has been photographed drinking coffee leisurely outside several cafes over the past several days.
Maybe the reason for the plunge is that Americans have finally wised up, and just in the nick of time.
Maybe Benghazi was Obama's Alamo in reverse, or maybe it was his 9/11. If that be the case in either measure, then he has failed miserably.
Something we are now used to.
October 22nd, 2012
By Barry Secrest
On Sunday morning, a possible North Carolina voter fraud issue was brought to our attention by an activist Conservative friend on Facebook named Belinda Bee.
She pointed out an article from another Conservative blog, indicated further below, in which a stunning number of 112 year-old voters had apparently already cast their votes. At the time, that number had been pegged at 758. Belinda asked me if we could help make people aware of the obvious problems in North Carolina, as it regards vote fraud, by writing a fairly comprehensive media article.
I then quickly laid down the facts in a Conservative Refocus News story explaining the implications of what might be rampant voter fraud and published the article, which received a high number of reads. Later, we made the decision to run a more refined article in The Examiner, in which I routinely write news articles and opinions.
By this time the number of 112 year-old votes had risen to 832.
What I had not anticipated, in writing the story, was how far and wide the thing would eventually go. You see, back in 2010 we visited the same issue of a massive numner of 110 year-old voters in NC; however, while being heavily read, it was nothing compared to what we would see both Sunday night and today. Those same voters appear to have made it to the beyond ripe old age of 112, and to be sure, 114 is just around the corner.
Uh....so is a belated Happy Birthday in order to our zombie centenarians?
That would be anyone's guess, but it may have something to do with the fact that Americans have had enough of what appears to be a state sanctioned lackadaisical approach to the people's vote and what we have already seen in the massive voter fraud that was on parade during the 2008 general election. Below is the story, as taken from both the Examiner and Conservative Refocus News:
In 2010 those problems surfaced meaningfully as indicated in the below voter fraud post from an earlier Charlotte Conservative Examiner article:
Perhaps in an effort to promote North Carolina as one of the healthiest States in the Nation, this latest voter twist comes to us from Susan Myrick of the Civitas Institute in North Carolina--not to be confused with Rep. Sue Myrick of NC who is unrelated. In a radio interview with local WBT Anchor Tara Servatious, Susan reports that she has been keeping track of the number of votes in North Carolina of individuals over the age of 110 years and apparently we have quite a few, over 410 of the 110 year olds--to be exact-- actually voted via absentee ballot on October the 28th. Yes indeed, now it would appear that good ole NC has the market cornered on the Centenarian vote.
At latest count, Susan has garnered a total Absentee Ballot vote of over 2,660 people over the age of 110. Someone contact the Guiness Book and warm up the Ford, the Fountain of Youth exists and its right here in lovely NC. It's no wonder people are moving here in droves--maybe the use of tobacco isn't such a bad thing after all? But, on a more serious note, with all of the irregularities going on all over the place, we can now begin to wonder about a few things.
Apparently those ultra-healthy seniors over 110 have aged and are now astoundingly over 112 years old, and are still able to make it to the polls ahead of time.
According to a post originally from the Silence Dogood political blog report, there were at least 758 individuals over the age of 112 who had either risen from their respective graves, or otherwise, to vote once again for the Democrats in charge, who might apparently have also guaranteed them an ever-lasting vote for life and beyond.
In visiting the political tracking site, we later found the same story in evidence, except the number of centenarian voters had increased measurably to 832 voters over the age of 112. Of these voters, over 70% were slated as Democrats, with a diminutive 25% counted as Republicans. The rest were unaffiliated.
When peering a little more deeply at the numbers, we find that an astounding 2,374 people between the ages of 94 and 100 have already voted in the NC election to date. While an even more astounding 832 votes came from those individuals aged 112. However, according to the Guinness book of world records, the oldest living person in the world, at present, lives in Japan and is 114 years old. It would seem obvious that, according to the NC voter registry, this old fellow might be nudged aside in the near future, especially considering the crop of spry 112 year-olds, seemingly alive and well in the old North State.
In fact, two of the 112 year aged voters were mail-in ballots from overseas; ostensibly vacationing to escape the now bitterly polarized political contest, and who can blame them?
But it gets worse, when we note from another concerned voter, who indicated the following explanation, which goes but one full measure further to explain what's happening in NC during this voting season of, perhaps, persistent political zombies:
I overheard a nice lady about 70 telling her friend the following: "Yes, I voted today."
"Going back tomorrow too."
"They took us to a place that don't ask names and don't write nothing down. They give $20 each time."
She then handed her friend a card I couldn't see and told her friend to call the number.
This same tipster later sent a message indicating that he had, indeed, contacted the local election center, which immediately patted him upon the head, graciously, for being a good citizen, with a promise to check on it again much later, in due course.
Obviously there is a problem, one in which voter ID might clearly provide a solution. A thing that only the Democratic party swears against at any cost, and for reasons becoming quite obvious.
The massive response to the above article has ranged from the comical to the poignant. As some few people have dismissed the article, others have raised it as a flag to the rampant vote fraud which we all have seen and certainly know to exist in every state, without a doubt.
However, the response from the NC Director of Elections was both predictable and unconvincing to those of us who can't quite settle for a pat answer. In the Raleigh News and Observer article, they described the response to our article in this way:
The Examiner, a conservative website, posted a story that has been shared by several thousand people on Facebook and Twitter. State elections director Gary Bartlett said the story spread quickly enough on social media that his phone started ringing during church Sunday and hasn't let up since – and a glance at the widely-circulated story shows why: "Of these voters, over 70 percent were slated as Democrats, with a diminutive 25 percent counted as Republicans…Obviously there is a problem, one in which voter ID might clearly provide a solution. A thing that only the Democratic Party swears against."
Just one problem: "It's not voter fraud at all," Bartlett said.
Oops! Sorry to ruin the man's Sunday, but first of all, in identifying the Director's pervericative efforts, The Examiner is not a Conservative website, rather it is a website that identifies the political leanings of virtually every writer to begin with. Something the Mainstream Media news outlets, like the News and Observer, would never do. However the NC Elections Director goes on to describe what "could" have occurred in this way:
Until the 1980s only age was collected when people registered to vote – not necessarily their date of birth – so a default of Jan. 1, 1900, was used for those who had not provided a birthdate.
In 2008, 9,856 votes were cast by people who were “108.” In 2010, 9,194 people who were “110” cast ballots. There have been 899 votes by people aged "112" so far this year.
“These people have been registered for a long time,” Bartlett said. “Twice now, we’ve cross-checked these people with drivers licenses, but if we can’t find an exact match, we don’t change anything because we don’t want to put out false information."
While the votes do heavily favor Democrats, that has been the case so far in early voting, whether faux-elderly or any other age.
Indeed, not a bad answer. Just reconcile the issue to those pesky data problems, something we have seen our ultra-modern governments do time and time again, especially when trying to explain something that appears to defy explanation. One has to wonder, however, what the exact motivation might be that sends the Democrats to the polls so much earlier than the Republicans?
However, in noting the NC Elections Director's answer, we noted another problem apparently in play, and it can be found at a website called the "TheCaller.com," located in Corpus Christie, Texas. In a July, 2012 article The Caller website provided an explanation to the same exact issue, a massive number of Centenarian voters that could not possibly be accurate.
In this article, here is what the Brooks County Elections Director indicated:
A computer glitch listed several voters in the May primary as 112 years old, according to the Brooks County elections administration.
“These people are not dead. They are alive,” said Soila Cavazos, assistant to the elections administrator.
The birth dates are at issue in a lawsuit filed by Jim Wells and Brooks County District Attorney Armando Barrera alleging voter fraud.
Cavazos said the voters in question registered to vote in the 1970s, when a birth date wasn’t required. When they get their voters registration cards in the mail, they should come in and have the birth date corrected, she said.
Rich Parsons, spokesman with the Texas Secretary of State’s Office, confirmed that Jan. 1, 1900, and Jan. 1, 1901, are placeholder dates used when a registration application is filled out without a birth date.
Same exact problem, same exact solution being "none?" What are the odds? Or could it possibly be something else?
Noting the fact that there is a vague plausibilty in both answers is undeniable. However, if the problem lies in the old style of registering voters all across the nation, then why do we not also see this same problem all over the US?
Maybe the Blaze, in their covering article's conclusion, put it best in concert with our thoughts on the matter:
So why so many “voters” over the age of 110? Well, how many deceased persons remain on the voter rolls and are being impersonated by fraudsters assuming their identity to vote? This problem might be solved by asking for some form of identification, but no voter ID laws exist in the state. One thing is certain, there’s something fishy going on in North Carolina.
To be sure, there does appear to something fishy, however, our Elections Director, along with the News and Observer, seem not too terribly concerned with actually verifying that these voters are still alive and kicking, in that these impossibly old voters have been ongoingly recorded now for the past several years.
In noting the most glaring part of the problem, where Democrats outnumber Republicans by a 3 to 1 margin in the "NC centenarian vote" we should also be apprised of another possible answer.
Appointed in 1992 by Democrat Governor Jim Hunt, later by Democrat Gov. Jim Easley, and later still by Democrat Gov. Beverly Purdue, we wonder how the NC Elections Director, Mr. Bartlett, might react to all of this were he a Republican or even an Independent?
The glaring problem, under virtually any other circumstance, would probably have been handled long ago.
October 16th, 2012
We have all seen it over the past four years, although few will admit it regarding this President, Barack Hussein Obama. While overseeing and even being operative in plunging virtually every economic indicator across the nation downward, Obama has seemingly doubled down on his promise to transform America.
And transform he has.
In fact, were it not for the 2010 election, where with the aid of the Tea Party's impetus, and the Republicans' new ability to block much of Obama's "Change We Can Believe In," the change that President Obama had initially sought might already have been largely completed.
So cast all of those other broken and otherwise campaign promises aside, as they should easily be revisited in this President's second term, provided that he achieves one. Whether you're an Obama fan or not, this President has not only eviscerated the Democratic Party of those malleable Governmental Centrists, and to a lesser degree the Republican Party of theirs, Obama has also dazzlingly highlighted the main differences between the Democratic and Republican Party platforms, along with their requisite ideologies, in a way that no single individual in American history, ever has.
However, in order for Obama to complete the job that he initially set out to do, here are just ten out of perhaps hundreds of both Liberal and Progressive reasons to vote, once again, for Obama and allow him to put the proverbial final nail into a construct that has been almost irredeemably transformational across virtually every economic, foreign, and social policy front.
1. Capitalism, Wealth and the Defeat of Overt Prosperity
The drumbeats were being felt before they were actually heard, beginning in 2007. Free market American Capitalism was falling increasingly under concerted assault. Despite a prodigious number of Progressive Democrat millionaires in Congress, led by multi-millionaire Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and despite Obama's $ 6 Million dollar book deal just prior to his taking office, the Progressives were successfully vilifying the political Right as being cronies for the wealthy.
The President came out of the inaugurative gate attacking virtually every business organization in existence for 'unfairly' trying to profit from the labor of America's workers. Naturally, the first thing to attack in defeating Capitalism was the word profit itself due to its allowing America's business owners to gainfully expand their businesses and put more of the proceeds into hiring more workers which would then increasingly damage the cause of the Workers Party and its constituents, while making even more money for these greedy business types who make up the bulk of US tax revenue.
Indeed, the Progressives say that profiting from the labor of American workers must come to an end and what better way to do that than to whisper sweet change into America's ear while laying her down to doze and putting an end to employers ingratiating themselves at the Worker's expense. The plan has largely worked too, meaningfully established in 2009. Since that time, the job pool has shrunk tremendously despite gains in overall population. There are, in fact, less people working now than in 2009 when the President took office, but because of the shrinking job pool in the US, the unemployment number has ostensibly dropped to below 8% and just in time for the 2012 election.
Those who claim that Obama isn't singularly brilliant, at least in the Collectivist model, just haven't been watching very closely.
2. Obamacare and the Nationalization of America's Healthcare
The liberally educated class and the Elites just naturally know better than those simpletonian rural Americans, especially the ones who bitterly cling to their guns and their religion, even the President himself stated that.
It has been a goal since the early 1900's for the Progressives to eventually machinate a changeover to a form of care just like the rest of the Socialist inclined masses across the globe. You see, America's healthcare system, despite being known as the best on the planet, was being administered by large corporations and insurance companies, two of the worst capitalist models known to the Liberal world.
Worse, businesses were being lauded for having bought and even paid for these policies of health insurance for free, thereby taking the health of the people away from the all-knowing government professionals and putting it into the hands of the profit-seeking business class who failed to deserve any sort of merit for their copious profiteering at the people's expense. Some of these policies were even paying for virtually every treatment, many even to the first dollar, which was grossly unfair to those individuals who lacked the ambition or motivation to put themselves into a similar position.
Everyone should get a fair shake, regardless of effort expended.
Even worse, the dirty word profit was once again being exchanged for the misery of the people. Wealthy Doctors and hospitals were actually trying to profit from those who had no money in the first place. It was time to change all of that and put things into the hands of a wise central government who had the people's best interests at heart. Now, as soon as the full effects of Obamacare are finally realized, not one of the unworthy will be allowed to receive free insurance coverage. And if anyone doesn't pay for insurance, then there will be over 16,000 agents of the most feared organization in America in place to penalize them, if not worse.
Those that are too poor, like always, will still have Medicaid, so that the bitter-clingers and their wealthy co-conspirators in the obtuse middle and upper-middle class, will still be the ones who are paying for all of the new expenses. But now, as soon as all of the greedy insurance companies falter out of business due to profit limitations, our unwasteful government under the supervision of the political class, will be administering social justice on a full-time basis.
All of this, just as it was envisioned long, long ago by the Liberals and their Progressive associates, led by the one, being Obama, who made it all happen and who will even do more.
3. Making it Difficult for Big Banks and Business in General
Capitalism just doesn't work, stated President Obama in a Chicago speech in 2010. Allowing others to fend for themselves simply isn't fair. It's a prehistoric model, say the Progressives, an archetype that has seen its best day. Just look at the success of the Euro- Socialists said the Liberal academians, well, prior to 2010, anyway. The Eurozone was and is a model for success that America must eventually follow if she is to 'keep up' both socially and economically.
But first, traditional Capitalism and its free market governmental framework must be defeated. What better way to defeat it than to use the power of government itself to essentially crack the foundation from the inside of its antique structure? So the President and his Congressional champions set to work and a brilliant Trojan-style campaign for the transformation of America's business dreadnoughts began.
"Belief in Capitalism is blind faith; this philosophy of letting people fend for themselves has failed."~Barack Obama, October,2010
First attack the big banks into a fawning submission, indeed, after the meltdown they were the most vulnerable. Next up, nationalize the failing auto companies and award the proceeds to the Worker's Unions', followed by the insurance companies, then the ancillary healthcare providers. After that, the Conservative champions of big business by virtue of attacking their actual businesses, thereby weakening and engendering fear for those who might dare to speak out. Then single others out, except for those of the powerful business elites who chose to join in the Progressive cause of penalizing and ostracizing the wealthy, the industrialists, and the lesser classes of small businessmen and women.
All the while, outwardly praising small business' ability to provide jobs so that no one could nail down what is actually happening in the regulatory strictures, which were acting as the proverbial straw, used to break the backbone of small business in America. Obamacare, given just a few years more, should finish the proverbial job as the screws are tightened like the coils of a constricting serpent in concert with the now miserably over-regulated banks, which fear lending small business any meaningful capital due to their collective terror at breaking draconian Government capital requirements.
Then, all will be right....and Obama's lifetime dream will be fully realized.
4. Mainstream Media Co-opting of America into its Rightful Place
It began in the fifties and the volume would be gradually turned up in such a way that no would notice it until it was too late. The first and best place to accomplish an easy takeover of the cluelessly naive and vulnerable Fourth Estate in America must begin within the print media. From there, the tentacles would stretch out into the televised media and its powerful networks. From there it would be the media provenders on the web. As technology increases, their tentacles would lengthen and grasp each iteration of the media in turn.
Should anyone protest, they will call it a myth, or complain that the Liberals just naturally take to the media which would become a powerful tool of convenient excuse and social activism. Meanwhile, those who train the media personalities, writers and anchors, being the academians in the universities and colleges, would be co-opted. Financial gifts and the tendrils of brotherhood must be established into these universities while creating a secular climate of cliques, so that traditional America would have few if any inroads to utilize and voice their views.

America, as the predominant world power, simply cannot continue as in the days of old; no one country should have more power than a world organization dedicated to peace, world submission and establishing a set of goals for every nation which must be eventually adhered to.
And so it was that the media would contrive a perpetual grasp on the throat of the flow of information in America and engender the tasks of the wily Progressives for nearly two generations.
Hand well played, indeed in Obama's difficult battle of withering the might of the free world's leader. The Colonialist United States of America finally taken down to its rightful position by the fellowship of the bling and its ringleader, who needs but just a little more time.
5. Undoing Judeo-Christian Values
America, to the Liberals, as a country founded upon what they would consider to be the ridiculous principles and teachings of the ancient Jews and the Christians, was a notion suffused in idiocy from the outset. If, in fact, these principles were so great, then why did America lose over 600,000 men and women in a fight both for and against slavery in the American Civil War?
The Progressives know, as in most authoritarian governments, that a belief in God is anathema to a central all-knowing government. All hope should endemically reside in the people's submission to their government, not to some cartoon-like belief in a mythical immortal savior; then and only then, can a nation move forward with one governmental structure of wise men in charge, which will then set down edicts as they deem fit, rather than depending solely upon the limits, set down on ancient paper, by an uneducated if not ridiculous peasantry bore of ill-educated sophists.
The US Constitution, which say the Liberals, seems to constantly refer to some fabulous mythic being, is the one governmental document that provides for a government grounded in the mythos of a divine being granting inalienable rights to individuals. Progressives, on the other hand, intrinsically know that rights should flow from those in power and should be subject to the needs of the many at the time, rather than the needs of the few or the one.
In this way, government will be allowed to flow and react rather than to be limited by what they call ridiculous religious principle that's somehow set in the concrete of secular Democracy. How can that possibly work, they say? The American people have been unerringly lucky for the past quarter millenia and the outrageous success of the US can only be ascribed to an historical hiccup of dumb luck.
Certainly, a centralized command and control system rendered into deferring those cumbersome individual rights over to an oligarchy of the wizened will smooth out the constant cycles of the oscillating free market and its dependence upon dumb luck or what the Proletariat calls their "God."
They, the Progressives, certainly don't call Obama their Messiah for nothing....
6. Nominalizing and Defeating Conservatism
Those knuckle-dragging Neanderthals of the US Constitution, the Conservatives and their ridiculous 'common-sense' approach to life, business and even government in general, are the Liberals' greatest enemies, even more so than the bible-thumping Christians. In fact, the Liberals are even now doing everything in their power both through the media and the government, at least while it still is in the hands of Progressives, to stamp out the sanctimonious fires of Conservatism that are engulfing America.
To make it even worse, the Conservatives have successfully made the argument that it's Obama's policies that have failed America when it's quite obvious to anyone, with a degree, that Obama is trying to transform America just as he had promised. The $ 16 trillion dollar deficit that the hard-right Conservatives complain about the most, should be taken as high as possible so that Obama can finally complete his herculean task of providing everyone in America with a guaranteed salary of $ 26,000 per year. Bush's deficit increase to $ 10 trillion, in his blind interest of defeating terrorism, was probably one of the silliest undertakings ever in government history, however, aid it did, in accelerating the Progressives towards their highest of Holy Grails which was to limit privacy, increase security, and dampen rampant liberties.
In fact, as it regards 'man-made disasters,' every fool knows that the Islamic fundamentalists just want the US out of the Middle East and not insulting their religion, that's all they require, then they will leave America good and well enough alone.
Sure the system, once all of the Progressive goals are achieved may go through some hard times as a result, maybe even bankrupt itself, but the food lines, energy shortages and the impossibly high interest rates that everyone knows is coming will be temporary, at best. Once the new paradigm is firmly established, an artist who simply desires to paint, or dance, or even take pictures all day long for a few years, can do so and still make a living wage, but now in the interests of life's highest form, which is the pursuit of art, literature and higher learning skills, rather than uselessly toiling on America's infrastructure or worse.
Why can't anyone, aside from the Liberals, see the wondrous possibilities, as facilitated by Obama, in all of this?
7. Instituting Islamic Fundamentalism Worldwide
Why all of the confusion regarding the Progressive liaison with the Islamists? Everyone knows that it's the Christians and the Jews, and especially those ridiculously attired Mormons, who are America's greatest internal enemies.
The thing to remember is that Freedom of religion, especially as it regards the Islamic fundamentalists, has never been more important because the Islamists are extraordinarily violent, unlike the Christians and Jews, which is easily reason enough for the Liberals to co-opt friendship with the hardline Muslims. Not only that, the establishment of Sharia law in the US is the one thing that can eventually render the US Constitution as virtually useless. The bizarre way that the Islamists treat women, is more cultural than religious anyway, so the Liberals can easily defeat that particular Islamic predilection once ultimate victory is achieved by the Progressives.
Indeed, when Sharia law is firmly rooted, the Progressives will then demand a waiver from adhering to Sharia law and, due to the Liberals' efforts in defeating Conservatism and the other religions, the Islamists will undoubtedly comply. Besides, anyone who is an enemy of American Conservatism will always be considered a best friend to the Progressive cause, no matter what, in the end.
The fact that the President was steeped in Islamic culture from the very beginning, and understands systemically the challenges of the Islamic world, can only aid the Progressive strategy of passive-aggressive capitulation.
8. Sequentially Redistributing America's Prosperity
The initial impetus of world redistribution, which began in the UN by mostly poor member states, was to utilize global warming/cap and trade provisions, to embark on the greatest voluntary transfer of wealth, the planet had ever seen. Unfortunately, a formerly hidden collapse in world temperatures which was uncovered in the Global Warming Meltdown of late 2009, dealt a death blow to the UN machination. The Progressives, at that time and under the leadership of President Obama, were very close to tying down what would have become a global redistribution network siphoning wealth from the most industrious western nations and into to poorer countries.
The fact that most of these poor countries have a form of totalitarian leadership, as frequently stated by the relentless Conservatives, had nothing to do with the problem. In fact, the reason these countries have singularly powerful totalitarian leadership, is certainly because of their lack of indigenous wealth.
America, it's well known throughout the world, has an overabundance of wealth that would be better served if given to the leadership of these poor nations. Once that occurs, the leaders will distribute the wealth into the hands of each individual citizen and poverty will be defeated in one fell blow. In a second term, a refreshed President Obama will easily bypass Congress and set forth a collection of UN imposed world taxes, levied only for those nations deemed to wealthy, in the west, and distribute the America's prosperity across the globe.
Why is this so hard for people to understand?
9. Totally Defeating American Militarism
It is a well-known Progressive fact that America's defensive juggernaut of a military is far too large and far too powerful for any individual nation to stand up against, alone. The UN can only cower at America's terrible military might, especially as it regards her jealous shielding of Israel. In addition, the United States' ability to project power across the globe allows for her to bully other nations who also have rights and should never be bullied despite their often questionable if not aggressive actions against what the colonialists euphemistically term "American Interests" or what the political center deems "human rights."
In addition, Liberals believe that the Conservative illusion of American exceptionalism, as the President stated, is a myth. America is no less exceptional than any other nation in existence. Progressives, in fact, believe that there should be no borders, anywhere. Nor should there be a collection of vulnerable non-nuclear nations set against nuclear nations. This is one particular reason why Obama has astoundingly reduced the overall number of nuclear missiles down to a handful compared to what the US once had. If elected, as he whispered to Russian President Medvedev, he will do much more.
This is also why Obama has been dragging his feet on controlling Iran's nuclear aspirations. Just as Obama stated, Iran is a small nation and should not be considered a threat. Its repeated assertions to wipe Israel from the map are nothing more than political hyperbole designed to fire up Iran's Islamic fundamentalist base.
Once American military might is heavily curbed, her soldiers massively retired, her Navy drawn down to the size of many other nation's Navies, and her air force largely swept free of air superiority fighters, all other nations will then begin to love America rather than to fear her and the US will also be limited in military options. Then the world peace that Progressives have always sought will finally be possible.
In a second term, Obama will make this long-held Liberal dream possible, if not fact
10. Shredding the US Constitution
The US Constitution is a relic say Progressives. Even Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg stated the same in instructing the new Egyptian government not to look at the US Constitution, but rather South Africa's which allows for more of what a government can do both to and for a person rather than what it cannot, as in the US Constitution. President Obama voiced essentially the same opinion when he stated that the US Constitution simply wasn't broad enough on what government should be able to do both to and for an individual or even group.
The separation of powers has repeatedly confounded Obama, in his efforts to install a unilateral Liberal dream into motion. So much so, in fact, that Obama has repeatedly bypassed the Constitution while placing his presidency at the mercy of a Right-Wing Supreme Court and even possible impeachment.
Obama and the new Democrat party have been forced into blazing a large number of completely original routes around the US Constitution by using regulatory bureaus, Czars and even tax schemes to effect Obama's change we can believe in. But the only way the Liberals can truly achieve their dream is to upset and belabor the process that the US Constitution requires. As in many nations, once the intricate processes laid out within the Constitution are continually usurped, then the Republican model of Rule of Law will eventually give way to a true social Democracy, which is rule by the masses.
Then and only then will the Left's dream of a true Democracy be fully realized and the new US welfare state will truly be delivered into the hands of those 'most deserving.'
This is both Obama and the political Left's dream and the race, heading into November, is tight.
