One thing must be said about Barack Obama: the man has been effective. In just four short years he has used the Alinsky playbook to advance his radical agenda, and has masterfully created a European-style socialist democracy virtually over night. Largely by fiat.
We cannot, however, let the establishment Republican leadership in the House and Senate skate on Obama’s virtually unimpeded rise to near-dictator status. They have been shamefully inept in articulating the conservative ideal that has shaped their party for the betterment of the republic since Lincoln’s time.
Neither can we can blame public ignorance on the media for long before the electorate must recognize that something is very wrong here. Dude, hello! Your America is gone. It has not been simply sidetracked. IT IS GONE.
Obama has taught an increasingly radicalized Democratic Party just how far it can go in derailing democracy.
Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera tore into President Barack Obama and his administration’s decision to allow Immigration, Customs and Enforcement to release detained illegal immigrants ahead of the mandatory budget cuts contained in the sequester. He called it a “tantrum” by Obama and a “spiteful move.” Rivera added that he hopes the White House has not endangered the prospects for immigration reform in the process.
Immigration reform? How about the lives and well being of Arizona’s citizens, immigration reform be damned!
If indeed President Obama is behind the wholesale dumping of 3,000 criminal aliens, and 1,000 per week throughout the month of March, onto the streets in Arizona (and make no mistake, he is), it is an impeachable offense.
Yet where is the outrage?
Back in 1994, when O.J. Simpson walked free on a double murder in Los Angeles, the media politely labeled the verdict “jury nullification.” As though the slaughter of two human beings could somehow be couched as a matter of civil rights. On a grander scale, we now have teachers in our classrooms instructing students to call Islamic terrorists “freedom fighters.”
It seems only logical that the evolution of this kind of insanity in the American culture should extend to the acceptance of an unabashedly lawless president who routinely tramples the checks and balances designed into our system.
