Sixty-three months ago Barack Obama officially declared his candidacy for President. Only now are some among the so-called media and ruling elites in America slowly awakening from their self-induced infatuation and beginning to understand who he is. It has become difficult to ignore the overt intimidation, demagoguery and deliberate falsehoods spewed forth by Obama relative to sequestration -- a miniscule cut in the growth of federal spending. However, any cursory examination of his past reveals that these tactics are second nature to the man who currently occupies the Oval Office.
Barack Obama is someone who would willingly inflict pain and suffering on the American people in order to permanently destroy his political enemies and accumulate near dictatorial power for the government he controls.
He has a huge support system in place, beginning with Valerie Jarrett and continuing through the Courts, the Justice Dept. and his Administration -- radicals all. Without a conscience to his name, it is easy, nay sadistic, to destroy anyone who comes between him and absolute power.
If those currently in power in the United States succeed in eliminating any opposition and continue to inexorably increase their control of the government through their tyrannical tactics, aided and abetted by the media, the sycophants in the ruling class and the entertainment complex, there will inevitably be uncontrolled violence and upheaval within America´s borders. The nation´s standard of living will drop precipitously; there will be an irrevocable loss of freedom and ultimately the imposition of foreign influence over a once proud nation.
I cannot believe Steve doesn´t see all this happening right now. I can see it. The only thing missing is "uncontrolled violence". For now, it´s somewhat controlled, except in Chicago. But let us never forget Obama´s promise to form a "civilian police force with the same resources and power as the military." (not the exact words, but close enough.)
Even the Left is beginning to crack. Some, those who have one remaining shred of integrity, are starting to speak out. The problem is that they are speaking out not because they see the dangers Obama presents, but because they´ve been snubbed -- some members of the White House Press Corps, for example.
The new blame game, which the msm will fully participate in, is that when the economy falters again this time it won´t be Bush´s fault but the sequestration cuts forced on poor little barry by those mean Republicans who hate women, children and all minorities. He is working so hard to fix things but those Republicans just won´t help him because he is black and they are racists. Good grief the msm should be tarred and feathered and run out of town.
Excellent article - so grateful that it is a Must Read!
On a note of hope, I have been substitute teaching in two or three high schools where the history classes are watching the movie Schlindler´s List. The kids then write reports or do projects about the movie. In the Obama age, Schlindler´s List just may be what helps to keep young people from falling down the dark hole of a dictatorship. My generation had The Diary of Anne Frank to show the horror of Hitler.
Thankfully, American kids haven´t had to worry about a Hitler type usurping power in the USA, but we are perilously close with Obama and his thugocracy. The following quote FTA should jolt Americans who participated in the 2008 presidential electon and helped to bring Obama to power: Nearly all the tyrants of the recent past had a unique capacity to mesmerize a large swath of the populace through ability to deliver a speech and create a cult of personality, aided and abetted by a media...
As soothing as it might be to think that a few media elites are beginning to have qualms over some of the results of the Obama presidency, the fact remains that the MSM is deeply invested in this man, both organizationally and at very personal levels. Simply raising a concern over an Obama policy or pronouncement can cause you trouble in the work place and is certain to get you barred from the best Georgetown parties. Though a few elites may occasionally look and behave like beaten wives, they are not going to abandon their man.
The MSM won´t turn against Obama because they are intellectual light weights too ill-equipped to fend off his snake oil charm. The lack of intellectual rigor in J-Schools today, epitomized by the execrable Columbia, has poisoned journalism for a generation. The current cohort of social activist crusaders masquerading as serious journalists have no clue what rigorous investigative reporting is, and are too undisciplined and steeped in sloth and to do it if they tried.
FTA: "What makes this belief system so popular among those who harbor megalomaniacal tendencies is the core tenet that the end justifies the means. With that simple phrase any tactic is permissible under the rubric that the true believers are pre-ordained to govern the people. Thus no lie is too egregious to tell, no strategy to destroy one´s political enemies is out of bounds, and the creation of false crises and faux enemies is not only legitimate but essential."
One of my favorite quotes out of many from this article. Excuse me while I pass it along. If we don´t try and get the truth out, it will not be known. The media will make sure of it and the Republicans are seemingly unwilling to go on the offensive. If this country is saved, it will be by the people. Our party has failed us.
"While a member of the Illinois Senate, Barack Obama was not only in favor of unfettered abortion rights, he introduced a bill that would make legal the murder of newly born children that miraculously survived an abortion." one need know no more than this. but, it´s over. I´m sorry. I wish it weren´t and I pray I´m wrong. But I tremble that Hillary is right. "What difference, at this point, does it make?"
I am afraid that America like an alcoholic is going to have to hit bottom. And it is not going to be pretty. We have here a ruthless and I mean ruthless President and who did the Republicans send up against him? A mushroom, a wussie, a do-gooding mr. positive lightweight. And who do we have up against him now? Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, John McCain, Lindsay Graham, John Cornyn, and all the Bush acolytes. It is a joke....and we are going to go down!
More preaching to the choir. So? Giving stuff away trumps every (masterly) word of this article. NONE of us oldsters paid for our flu shots!! Free Stuff is our drug of choice. Any politician would have figured this out sooner or later.
Dr. Alan Keyes removed the mask from Obama´s face, during the 2004 Illinois United States Senate race, when he exposed the godless weasel´s support for infanticide during the time young Barry was a member of the Illinois General Assembly in Springfield.
Why is DHS stocking up enough military gear to support an army. Why is the House of Representatives not questioning these actions and withholding funds in an equal amount that are being spent to maintain this armament?
#8, the genesis for the fury of enlightened German youth after WWI was the belief, furthered by the cowardly Kaiser and the German press, that traitorous Jews were responsible for the loss of WWI and the thorough humiliation of Germany at Versailles. The Jews simply had to be destroyed as enemies of a nobler Mankind. Compare that to what today´s youth is taught about Republicans, gun-owners, Christians, Jews, suburbanites, the wealthy, tea party sympathizers, etc. Hatred and evil can visit any generation.
I´ve said before that behind the big joker smile lives a cold and angry man. I´ve jokingly called him a Black Panther with a law degree. He and the missus are still filled with the 60´s rage that gave us Huey Newton and Angela Davis. They vented their rage at the "man" (white of course). But now Obama is the "man". What now? He often laments that he is not a dictator. This is a fact... If he wins the house he will de facto become one. Where then will he go to vent his rage?

Someone is preparing for (or planning to instigate) major conflict. But with who. As far as I know there has been no organized insurrection. Yet. Now if they enter a sovereign State territory like Arizona it could be on.
This article outlines every reason that I have been calling for another revolution, now, while we are still able to do so. If we don´t, there will no longer be a "land of the free and home of the brave".
Steve is a softie, afraid of the truth, just dances around the core. It´s all about communism, Stalin, Hitler, and he won´t mention those words. These reckless, ruthless agitators are destroying as much as they can destroy, as quickly as they can destroy. Enough of New Media sees it, Andrew saw it, spoke ludly, but he´s dead. James David Manning, black preacher says, "he was wacked". But all of old Tom Brokaw, Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams, Steve Pelley, 60 Minutes Ministry, the whole, huge mafia media support it and are blind to all the crime being perptrated now. The road from Puglosi, Reid, Obama socalism, to Stalinist Soviet Communism, is a short one. Time to wake up and smell the stink.
Please! Can we finally at least put to rest the tired, worn out and, most importantly, incorrect cliché, “America’s First Black President”?
He is America’s First Gray President.
Contrary to the conventional so-called wisdom which has been “out there” for more than four years, Barack Hussein Obama is America’s first gray, not black, president. 50% black + 50% white = 100% gray. Or even Mulatto, if you prefer. So, can we finally clear that up and get it out of the way? Thank you!
What is so depressing about this article is that there were articles just like this before the election and yet through fraud we got him again. I´ve never been more concerned for this country and am torn between wanting to be very informed and just going underground and putting my head in the sand. It´s so tiresome that those of us who see the writing on the wall are called conspiracy theorists, the tin foil hat brigade and worse. 0bama is behaving just like many dictators in the past and we have a media who is complicit in our demise because they idolize the tyrant 0bama way too much. The leftists have had years and years to put in place all the pieces they need to bring us down. How I wish we had conservatives who were awake long ago and could have protected us from this disaster.
#42, i know exactly how you feel. And i suspect most of those here and conservatives in general share the agony.
But, we can´t give up. I know you won´t. We need to think, "We have only begun to fight." We must call Congressmen, encourge them, exhort them.
#s29 and 32: i took a (nauseating) tripdown memory lane into 2008, zeroed in on July 2, 2008 where BO is giving a nearly half-hour speech.
Sixteen or so minutes in is where he makes the infamous remark about needing a "civilian national security force that´s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as the military, "in order to achieve the national security objectives."
(I revisited americanthinker.com Archives for 2008, so many excellent articles, and so many reminders of how much was known, and yet ignored. Take your strongest anti-nausea meds or a stiff drink before doing likewise...)
Please forgive the second post, however this article has bothered me and I kept trying to think why and I did a search on a well know dictator. Here is a quote:
"youth participation on large construction projects as part of their "patriotic work"; an intensification of political-ideological education in schools and universities, as well as in children´s, youth and student organizations; and an expansion of political propaganda, orienting radio and television shows to this end, as well as publishing houses...."
This is written about Nicolae Ceau?escu. Do these methods look familiar?? Those who do not see 0bama as a threat to this nation do so at their own peril.
Let us not forget that lord messiah o´bama is being prepped by Henry Kissenger,World Net Daily,and Kissenger himself,to be New World Order dictator and this is how a dictator is supposed to conduct himself. This country got what it asked for so just SHUT UP and prepare yourselves for what is to come.
Obama was, is and always will be two things: inept and a coward. He lacks real knowledge of anything outside the privileged elitist life he has lead and the ridiculously liberal institutions of ´learning´ he spent his developmental years in. He has no idea that there really are evil people, people intent on death and mayhem. He has no conception that his beloved islam is often perverted into a system of slavery and death. He is clueless and dangerous and the only people with less real world understanding than he, are the blind lemmings that voted for him.
Individuals who have even visited Israel, or who observe Judaism, or who carry a Bible are banned from Saudi Arabia. Yet Saudi Arabia´s Israel-hating King Abdullah just flew in an Israeli scientist to have dinner with him, to enjoy some royal hospitality, accept a medal and the $200,000 "Arab Nobel Prize." It´s a not-so-subtle message to President Obama: the unthinkable can happen, so don´t assume the Saudis won´t join with Israel to bomb Iran. Obama´s new Iran policy moves the Mid-East closer to war over oil and religion -- Sunni Saudis versus Shia Iranians. There is no more strategic commodity than
Before "if you like your plan, you can keep it," the Obama left made a whole spate of false promises in the realm of sexuality. It´s worth connecting the dots between the folly of ObamaCare, an issue for which I wasn´t personally on the front lines, and the sweeping folly of sexual radicalism, an issue for which I was. In the rhetorical battlefield over sex and sexuality, the left rehearsed and perfected public-opinion warfare. These seasoned tactics led to the triumphal hubris of ObamaCare and the collateral damage of its inexorable implosion. Pick your antique allegory of overconfidence: the Tower of Babel,
"I´ve written two books," Senator Barack Obama told a crowd of teachers in Virginia on the campaign trial in July of 2008. The teachers applauded. "I actually wrote them myself," he added with a wink and a nod, and now the teachers exploded in laughter. They got the joke: Republicans were too stupid to write their books. Although few fussed over Obama´s second book, a first-person memoir/ policy brief published in 2006 titled The Audacity of Hope, Obama´s 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father had emerged as the sacred text in the cult of Obama "There is no underestimating the importance
Elect a Chicago community organizer (twice) as your president and you should not be surprised to find that all he is capable of is spewing propaganda and dividing us by personalizing attacks on those who oppose his grandiose, wildly impractical efforts at reshaping our lives to suit his sophomoric view of the good life. As the obvious failure of ObamaCare has become evident to all but his most blinkered cultists, Obama fell back this week on upping the propagandizing and deflecting attention from his failures with even more lies. His organizing arm OFA (Organizing for America) urged supporters to use this year´s
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
MONTICELLO, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A video recording shows the mayor of the Sullivan County municipality of Monticello in a heated confrontation after being arrested by his own police officers. (Snip) He was taken into custody after showing up to take a look at a serious car accident on Main Street. A volunteer firefighter noticed the mayor looked drunk, according to police, and notified law enforcement. Jenkins was arrested on the spot. In a video recorded at his own police headquarters, a man identified as Jenkins was shown seated in a chair with one hand handcuffed to a wall. During the first
If you think ObamaCare is bad, just wait till you hear the new "peace" agreement that is due to be imposed on the Middle East over the coming weeks. Even if it works, a giant if, it will make the world much more dangerous: 1. Iran will have nuclear weapons, or it will be balanced right on the edge -- within one month or less to make nukes. 2. Saudi Arabia and Egypt will go nuclear, to balance Iran. 3. America´s role as a guarantor of peace will be blown, crushed by Obama´s betrayal of Israel and the Arabs. America´s nuclear umbrella, which
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
