As the leftists in the mainstream media continue excuse Barack Obama, I believe the American people are beginning to catch on. At every turn, President Obama’s policies are failures, viewed from the standpoint of ordinary Americans who value the future of their country. The problem is that Obama undoubtedly views these as successes, since he is in no way ordinary in his view of America. Remember, he thinks America is an exceptional nation “in the same way the Greeks believe Greece is an exceptional nation.” The truth is that Barack Obama views the United States as an exceptionally evil nation that must be crushed, and cut down to size. He exhibits certain loyalties to other cultures and philosophies that are fundamentally at odds with the uniquely American culture that had given rise to our national prominence and prosperity. Since his inauguration, virtually every policy he has advanced has furthered his aim of deconstructing America. This growing crisis isn’t a result of simple negligence, but instead the culmination of a drive to make America nearly irrelevant around the globe. He has overseen a bankrupting of the nation that will effectively force the United States to withdraw from the world, leaving us unable to afford to defend even our own borders. Some believe he is merely inept, or “in over his head,” but that doesn’t fit the facts. Obama is achieving the “dreams from his father” to the detriment of every American, as well as the civilized world.
Before you dismiss this out of hand, you ought to consider the laundry list of policies he has undertaken that are by the fact of their aim, obnoxious to American ideals and values. Providing missile defense secrets to the Russians cannot be in the interests of the people of the United States, yet this he has done without the first explanation of his rationale. Fortunately, we know his thinking because it shows in every policy he has implemented: The United States must not be permitted a technological edge against potential enemies. In his view, it allows the US to have much more influence around the globe than it “deserves.” You dastardly Americans have had your way in the world for far too long, and he’s out to correct that “imbalance.”
He has driven out regimes that were at least malleable in the face of cash throughout the Middle East. It is true that some of these leaders were monstrous, Gaddafi for instance, but our relationship with Hosni Mubarak was hardly the worst convenient arrangement we’d ever entered in that part of the world. As he pushed the “Arab Spring” forward, one had to question the wisdom of all of this as we saw radicals making huge advances in many of these formerly cooperative countries. Turkey is now ruled by a growing Islamic radicalism, and Tunisia is a wreck born of this movement. Iraq is coming apart at the seams again, and throughout the Gulf states, Islamic radicalism is leaping forward. One might make a serious error in relation to one country or another, but what Obama has wrought is a region-wide disaster. What do you suppose will happen when the radicals chase us out of every oil-producing state? How long do you suppose we will keep the taps flowing? What will become of us then? Will you ride a solar bicycle to work? Will you enjoy twenty dollar gasoline? Obama’s “green energy” plans are a farce, and always have been, and he knew that too, which is why he invested so much of our money in various boondoggles that were really simple kick-backs to political donors.
He is in the process of making our nation defenseless. Defense of our nation requires much more than a few bombers, tanks, and the personnel to operate them. One of the greatest threats to our nation is the fiscal and monetary policy of the US Government. Our government consumes too much, and the overwhelming bulk of spending is for the entitlement sector. It is already squeezing out defense expenditures, which is one of the few perfectly legitimate functions of our constitutional form of government. This was known long before it began to become a reality, and it’s been an object of Obama’s runaway spending all along. What sort of responsible President would use the troops’ paychecks as a bargaining chip in a budget battle, threatening to cut them off if he didn’t have his way?
Obama has created a growing rift in American society. This rift has racial elements, but it has created divisions between generations. He is setting the stage for an environment in which the young will be at war with the old over diminishing federal resources. His economic policies have created an entire generation of discontent, but because they’ve been largely indoctrinated rather than educated, too few are able to see that the man who poses as their savior is instead acting as the agent of their enslavement and impoverishment. What else can be the meaning of Occupy Wall Street, a movement planned and coordinated, as well as funded by his radical friends? To watch some of these poor dumb souls run about mouthing the articles of faith from communism, but unable to even recognize their advocacy as such is a study in irony only to be fully appreciated by the perfectly mad.
On the international stage, the man who promised to make the world love or at least accept America has accomplished the precise opposite. Contempt for America has grown in all quarters, both because we have become weaker, and because we have abandoned many of our allies. The snubs of the Brits and the Israelis are among the most telling, because these had been two of our best friends in recent years. No longer. The Israelis government must wonder each day if it is to strike Iran in a pre-emptive attack on nuclear facilities whether Obama will use the occasion as an excuse to create an alliance with Iran. How many times, and in how many ways has he foolishly insulted our British friends, disclaiming anything “special” about our relationship with an ally who we together stood through two World Wars, and many lesser engagements? To discover that we now have a cool relationship with our historical allies should be an embarrassment to Obama, but it’s not, because while those alliances have made us stronger over time, that is the antithesis of his goal.
Viewed carefully, one can detect even in his domestic policies a certain contempt for the American people. Obama-care was enacted over the wild objections of the American people, and his policies on illegal immigration, including his de facto amnesty policies are obnoxious to every American who came here by standing in line and observing the legal process. Examine how he is now using executive orders and policy changes in various federal departments in order to increase the number of gun confiscations. Look at how his surrogates now agitate against free speech. Remember when liberals told us that virtually anything goes in the name of free speech? Look at how they have run away from that as they have shifted the limiting of speech into the service of their political agenda.
He abhors Christianity, at least insofar as it isn’t the product of broken minds like Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s. Black liberation theology is more of a political philosophy than a religious one. Meanwhile, Catholics and other Christians who may have serious ethical issues with funding of abortion and contraception through taxpayer dollars are now shocked to see that such policies will be imposed now through regulations on health insurance. It’s funny that while he has undertaken to make the world safe[r] for Shariah, he has done everything possible to punish Christians of various denominations.
I could go on for many pages, but the fact is that it really isn’t necessary. My readers will have known by now that this President isn’t making any “mistakes” in his eyes, or in the intentions of the left. Everything he is doing or has done pursues as its ultimate object the diminution of the United States of America. Nobody could get this many things wrong by accident. Sheer chance alone would demand that something come out right once in a while that would be good for the American people, if all this were accidental. It’s not. What we are witnessing is the result of a coordinated effort to reduce the United States to irrelevancy, or even vulnerability. It’s being done with a malice aforethought in what can only be termed the premeditated murder of the greatest nation in the history of the world. It’s time we deny to him the alibi of incompetence for once and for all. His presidency has been too heinous and too malevolent to have been the result of negligence alone.
