The Anti-American President – annotated version

Obviously something is rotten on Pennsylvania Avenue; no intelligent American president would do the things Obama has done. There has been talk of his inexperience1, incompetence2, or just plain stupidity3 to explain his Bizarro-administration. However, Obama is not incompetent; he is an intelligent anti-American president. Obama is not a failure at his job — his job is the failure of our country.
Liberty-minded folk have several reasons why we assume another person is incompetent rather than malicious. One reason is our belief that a person is “innocent until proven guilty”; another is the natural presumption others are similar to ourselves. Unfortunately, these ideas have been coupled with a pair of dangerously pragmatic moral equivalencies foisted upon us all: “Who am I to judge?” and “They couldn’t possibly mean that.” As long as there is any possibility that Obama is just in over his head and doesn’t mean what he says and does, many will excuse him on those grounds.
Every American must judge Obama and his ideas and understand he does mean what he says, and realize there is no excuse, save one — Barack Obama is an anti-American in thought and deed.
Obama gets dreams from his socialist4 father. His mother was a fellow traveler5. Obama lived in anti-American Indonesia6 as a child. Later, granddad decided Obama needed a Communist mentor7. O got into Harvard on the recommendation8 of anti-Semitic Khalid al Mansour, an adviser to Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. In college O chose his friends9 carefully — “the more politically active black students, foreign students, Chicanos, Marxist professors and structural feminists.” As a professor he taught10 Marxist Saul Alinsky tactics, and as a constitutional scholar he believed that there are fundamental flaws11 in the Constitution, such as restraint on governmental power. As a community organizer and counsel he pushed12 sub-prime mortgages which helped buckle our economy.
He’s a trench-mate with voter-fraudsters ACORN and quasi-commie SEIU. He had house parties and sat on boards with an unrepentant, revolutionary13 communist, William Ayers, who probably ghostwrote one of O’s autobiographies14. He attended the social-justice church of Jeremiah Wright, where he was preached at on collective salvation15 and black liberation16. Illinois state senator and communism-lover Alice Palmer17, picked O as her chief of staff. As a U.S. senator, he had the most leftist18 voting record. His wife’s only source of American pride19 came in her 40s as a result of O’s own success. He was endorsed by the Communist Party in 200420, and in 2008 Obama got CPUSA’s endorsement again, basically running on the CPUSA platform21. (And yes, CPUSA have endorsed him again22 for 2012!)
And this was before the campaign and presidency. Does his bio reflect incompetence or something more sinister? Does his journey sound like one of an all-American or an anti-American?
In his own words, during the campaign:
Sept, 17 200723 to SEIU:
“[Y]our agenda’s been my agenda[.]“
November 200724 to ACORN:
“I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career.”
December 200725 addressing ACORN and other community organizations:
“[W]e’re going to be calling all of you in to help us shape the agenda, We’re going to be having meetings all across the country with community organizations so that you have input into the agenda for the next presidency of the United States of America.”
January 5, 200826 to SEIU
“I’ve been working with the SEIU before I was elected to anything … We are going to paint the nation purple with SEIU. SEIU, I’m glad you are with me. Let’s together change the country. SEIU! SEIU!”
“[I]f somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can, it’s just that it will bankrupt them…under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
May 16, 200828 in Oregon:
“We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK…That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen.”
June 3, 200829 in St Paul Minnesota
“This was the moment — this was the time –when we came together to remake this great nation”
July 13, 200830 to La Raza:
“[W]e rise and fall together as one people…And together, we won’t just win an election — we will transform this nation.”
October 12, 200831 to Joe the Plumber:
“I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”
October 30, 200832 at the University of Missouri, Columbia:
“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America[.]“
How many Marxist groups will he share agendas with before it’s apparent? How many times will he say he wants to change, remake, or fundamentally transform America before we believe he wants to?
Almost everything Obama says and does is a scripted, controlled, and choreographed event. The man causes relentless instability, yet it is all planned. We know where his ideas come from: the George Soros-funded, Hillary Clinton-founded Center33 for American Progress and Joel Rogers’ Apollo Alliance34 with help35 from its ex-Weather Underground co-founder36, Jeff Jones, among others37.
As president he’s appointed the following foxes as hen house guards:
- A former SEIU member,38 who kind of agrees with Mao…Ron Bloom as manufacturing czar.
- A former commissioner39 of Socialist International, eco-profiteer, and CAP board member…Carol Browner as global warming czar.
- An ACORN defender40 and Obama’s private attorney41…Robert Bauer as ethics and transparency czar.
- A revolutionary communist42…Van Jones as green jobs czar.
- A power-lusting control freak43 longing to delimit choices…Cass Sunstein as regulatory czar.
- An anti-capitalist Chicken Little44 peddling junk science…John Holdren as science czar.
- A man45 who thinks terrorists represent the legitimate needs and grievances of ordinary people…John Brennan as counter-terrorism czar.
- An anti-Israel “poverty breeds terrorism” theorist46…Susan Rice as U.S. ambassador to the U.N.
- A woman47 who believes that Congress can abridge free speech and another48 who thinks the court of appeals is where policy is made…Elena Kagan & Sonia Sotomayor as Supreme Court justices.
- An SEIU VP, activist for the Working Families Party, and political director for Bertha Lewis, the head of ACORN’s New York chapter…Patrick Gaspard as director49 of the office of public affairs to help push the president’s agenda.
- A man50 who gives guns to drug cartels while allowing them to smuggle drugs in, who refuses to protect our borders while litigating any state which tries to defend its own as he turns a blind eye to voter intimidation…Eric Holder as attorney general.
- A woman51 worried about white right-wing extremists while she has Grandma groped at the airport…Janet Napolitano as homeland security chief.
- A woman52 who proposes that the U.S. has the right to protect “Palestine” from Israel…Samantha Power as a foreign policy adviser.
SEIU president and Marxist Andy Stern53 and the AFL-CIO’s Dick Trumka54 are/were two of the most frequent White House guests. Obama directs NASA’s chief, Charlie Bolden, to perform Muslim outreach55. The EPA will handle56 cap and trade after Congress said no. The borders won’t be secured until O gets amnesty57 for millions of potential voters with no allegiance to America. O imposed a drilling ban58 for oil, then said the judge could fly a kite59 when the judge lifted the ban. Brazil purchased60 some of those rigs, and Obama wants to be a big consumer61 of Brazil’s oil. His administration may have facilitated62 the murder of a border agent and is trying to suppress63 second-amendment rights, as a result.
His Tea Party mockery64 65, the takeover66 of industries, the contortions67 of Obamacare, the slow response68 to BP’s oil spill, the tens of thousands of new regulations69, the aggressive deficit spending, the Fed’s printing sprees, bowing to and borrowing from anti-Americans — all are part of the blueprint. Even his petulance, arrogance, constant golfing, and “let them eat cake” attitude are part of the plan. Obama understands how grating such behavior is to any American who doesn’t worship strongmen. His glaring70 at Netanyahu after throwing Israel under the bus71, his browbeating72 the Supreme Court during the SOTU, and of course, his Mussolini-like poses73 with his chin74 touching the ceiling are all calculated to intimidate some into a cult of personality and alienate others. And he has done so much more. 75 76 77 78 79 80 81
Obama has never stood for individualism, capitalism, or liberty. Everything he does has the reek of statism, collectivism, and tyranny, but not because he is an incompetent bumbler — though he may be in many areas, sans TOTUS — it’s because he is a statist and a collectivist and the citizens of our country naïvely gave the reins of power to a tyrant.
To paraphrase the Wizard of Oz, an honest Obama would say to us, “Oh, no, my fellow world citizens, I’m a very good anti-American president. I’m just a very bad American president.”
