Obama's election coincided with the
worst free wall of the Stock Market in American history. Yet during the years of George W.
Bush, who likewise had to fight off a recession early in his tenure due the President
Clinton's fiscal policies and the stock market crash following 911, the unemployment rate
bottomed out at 4.4% in the spring of 2007. When Obama took office the unemployment rate
that he inherited from Bush stood at 7.8%. Obama's "Change" apparently made it
worse as the unemployment rate spiraled up from there. At the
According to Columnist Peter
"The National Bureau of Economic Research, the recognized scorekeeper of when recessions start and end, declared this latest recession over in June, 2009, which would make it the longest recession since the Great Depression. But the historical precedent in America is the deeper the recession the stronger the recovery, as the American economy accelerates to return to its long term trendline. Based on that precedent, we should be in the third year of a raging recovery boom by now. But instead we have suffered the worst economic recovery from a recession since the Great Depression.
"Unemployment actually rose after
June, 2009, and did not fall back down below that level until 18 months later in December,
2010. Instead of a recovery,
The fact is that, other than in election
years, Obama desired the high unemployment rate because it increased the welfare state.
This was why he continued to fight to extend Federal Unemployment Benefits which continued
to keep people dependent upon the government rather than working. With that in mind Chad
Stafko wrote on
"Government dependence, which is defined as the percentage of persons receiving one or more federal benefit payments, is at a staggering 47%, its highest level in American history, while 21 million households are reliant on food stamps. In fact, government spending on food stamps in 2010 ($68 billion) was double what it was in 2007. . ."
It's no wonder that the "Great Recession" lingered. Obama went as far as to do things to hurt the economy including putting a moratorium on deep well drilling in the Gulf after a BP oil spill and refusing to allow the building of the Keystone Pipeline.
As detailed by Jill Adams of the National Review on June 8, 2011, "For months, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar used the Deepwater Horizon tragedy as the single excuse for his agencys failure to issue permits for new oil exploration in the Gulf. But a new House Oversight and Government Reform Committee report tells a different story: Its all about political will.
"Ignoring key evidence and input
from hundreds of energy-exploration experts, Salazar suspended drilling on 33 deepwater
wells and banned new drilling plans in the
"The committees report also
noted the administrations reckless disregard for the 400,000
". . . The administrations de facto moratorium on oil exploration in the Gulf has resulted in a complete reversal from where we were one year ago: Domestic production was then at an all-time high for the sixth year in a row; U.S. reliance on the Middle East was decreasing as oil imports from the region declined to less than 18 percent; and Americans were paying $2.86 per gallon.
While watching gas prices go up over
$4.00 a gallon
"Safety is no longer an issue.
Oil-rig operators have already demonstrated that they can contain a BP-sized blowout. Yet
the administration has issued just one permit to drill in the
". . .If the president truly wants to cut our dependence on foreign oil, reduce gas prices, and create jobs, he could direct Interior Secretary Salazar to clear the backlog of oil-exploration permit applications in the Gulf and expedite plans going forward.
"But the president doesnt want that. And thats the point."
According to the New York Times on 6-22-10, "In a 22-page opinion, the judge, Martin L. C. Feldman of United States District Court, issued a preliminary injunction against the enforcement of a late May order halting all offshore exploratory drilling in more than 500 feet of water.
"Citing potential economic harm to businesses and workers, Judge Feldman wrote that the Obama administration had failed to justify the need for such 'a blanket, generic, indeed punitive, moratorium on deep-water oil and gas drilling.
'The blanket moratorium, with no parameters, seems to assume that because one rig failed and although no one yet fully knows why, all companies and rigs drilling new wells over 500 feet also universally present an imminent danger,' wrote Judge Feldman, a 1983 appointee of President Ronald Reagan."
Yet to demonstrate his contempt for the rule of law, after Judge Feldman ordered the Administration to put a halt to the moratorium on deep well drilling in the Gulf, Obama stepped over the constitutional line and ignored the judge.
These moves not only denied Americans jobs when they were desperately needed, but stood in the way of independence from Mideast Oil. Thus Obama's actions were direct assaults on our national security.
It was obvious that it was Obama's
intent to use the recession and environmentalism to destroy
Obama showed his communist stripes in
October during the 2008 election. That is when he spoke to Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (Joe
the Plumber), of suburban
Throughout his presidency Obama made
sure to keep class warfare alive. And so, according to Lartry Kudlow of the National
Charles Gasper of the New York Post
"Such was President Obamas latest State of the Union Address."
Indeed Obama used the unfortunate
economy to nationalize private businesses, including General Motors; in order to extend
the reach of government farther than it has ever gone before. According to the Washington
During the early years of his presidency
a vast majority of
According to the Guardian on
"After days of maneuvering by the Democratic party leadership to bring dissident party legislators on board and an impassioned plea on Saturday by Obama, the speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, confirmed that the votes were in the bag.
"'Tonight, at a time when the pundits said it was no longer possible, we rose above the weight of our politics," Obama said during a late-night appearance at the White House.
"'This legislation will not fix everything that ails our healthcare system, but it moves us decisively in the right direction. This is what change looks like.'"
"Despite not going as far as many
liberals had hoped, the bill will take the
Indeed Obama "forced" the healthcare law through Congress. When the Democrats in the Senate didn't have enough votes to overcome a Republican filibuster, it appeared that the health care law was dead in the water. But then there was the so-called "nuclear option."
As indicated by Brian Darling of the
Heritage Foundry on
". . . Americans treasure the idea that our Republic was set up so that the power of the federal government is derived from the consent of the people. The extraordinary state power to pass legislation that puts the government in control of more private health care decisions should only be done with the clear consent of the American people.
". . . There is no consent of the governed for Obamacare. As a matter of fact, there is a consensus that the Presidents top down approach to reforming health care has the explicit opposition of the American people."
But the consent of the people was not on
Obama's mind. Rather, it was intention use the health care law to bring the American
populace under his direct control. To make sure of that, he built the law around an
unconstitutional mandate that forces everyone in
And he causeth all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bond, that there be given them a mark on their right hand, or upon their forehead; and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, [even] the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six. (Rev 13: 16-18)
Also, Obama knew if the government can
control people's health, then it can control them. In order to kick off the Communist
In addition Obama expanded his powers by
taking the appointment of Czars to a new level. While sidestepping the approval Congress
he appointed a host of powerful men and women bent on controlling the actions of
Americans. "As of
Every one of these Czars was appointed
without congressional approval. As observed by Mike Bauer on
"In most cases there are no confirmation hearings to evaluate the qualifications of the appointed czars, thus they are largely insulated from accountability to Congress. Critics say that such an arrangement threatens to increase the power of the President (who appoints these czars) beyond what is constitutionally mandated. Even the late Democrat Senator Robert Byrd warned that the czar system 'can threaten the constitutional system of checks and balances.'
These Czars were affiliated with ultra left wing activist groups (otherwise Communists). Likewise they were Obama donors.
It was obvious that it was Obama's
intention to undermine the authority of Congress in order to transform it into a gathering
of puppets. As I sit here on
Therefore, in order to weaken Congress
Obama went on the attack with his usual gridlock mantra. According to Fox News on
. . . The president reiterated his calls for government reform made in Tuesday's address, saying he wants the Senate to pass a rule that requires a yes-or-no vote for judicial and public service nominations after 90 days. Many of the nominees, he said, carry bipartisan support but get held up in Congress for political reasons.
. . . Obama said he also wants Congress to pass legislation to ban insider trading by lawmakers and prohibit lawmakers from owning securities in companies that have business before their committees.
In addition, the president is seeking to prohibit people who bundle campaign contributions from other donors for members of Congress from lobbying Congress. Obama urged the public to contact their member of Congress and tell them that it's time to end the gridlock and start tackling the issues that really matter."
This was nothing other than the arm of Octavian demanding that the Senate do his bidding. Like Caesar himself Obama was demanding that Congress pass rules to limit its ability to make independent decisions. As his comments clearly testified he wanted the Senate rules to be rigged so that he could ramrod his liberal judges and programs through. He wanted to control what legislators could invest in and limit the money they could raise to attain office. What would he want next? President for life?
There could be no doubt that Obama
desired to attain the status of Caesar. Therefore he expanded the role of the presidency
into a dictatorship when he ignored the rulings of judges and the laws of Congress. We
have already described how he ignored a judge's order regarding his Gulf deep well
drilling moratorium. Then, as posted by William A. Jacobson,
"Judge Vinson found that there was no need for an injunction, since the declaratory judgment that the entire law was invalid was sufficient. In effect, there is nothing left to enjoin, since no part of the law survived."
In other words, the judge's ruling assured that Obamacare must not be implemented until the appeal process had taken the matter to the Supreme Court. Obama simply ignored the judge's ruling and implemented his coveted law anyway.
Then Obama defied Congress when he
refused to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act. As it turned out, in spite of his
professions during the 2008 campaign, as revealed during the campaign of 2012 on
"On Thursday, two of those senators
Ron Wyden of
The Oval added; "'As we see it, there is now a significant gap between what most Americans think the law allows and what the government secretly claim the law allows,' said a letter to the Justice Department by Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Mark Udall, D-Colo."
But perhaps the most frightening
development of all was the fact that Obama determined he would use the military against US
citizens. As reported in Forbes on
"'The fact that I support this bill as a whole does not mean I agree with everything in it,' the president said in a statement.'I have signed this bill despite having serious reservations with certain provisions that regulate the detention, interrogation and prosecution of suspected terrorists.'
"Worse, the NDAA authorizes the
military to detain even
"There is some controversy on this
point, in part because the law as written is entirely too vague. But whether or not the
law will be used to indefinitely detain US citizens domestically, it is written to allow
the detention of
'Obamas signing statement seems to suggest he already believes he has the authority to indefinitely detain Americanshe just never intends to use it,' Adam Serwer writes at Mother Jones."
And worse yet, during the first week of
June, 2012, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano of Fox News began to report of the Obama
Administrations intent of using drones (un-manned aircraft) for the purpose of spying on
American citizens. In his article Where is the Outrage? He penned on
"It gets worse. If the military personnel see something of interest from a drone, they may apply to a military judge or 'military commander' for permission to conduct a physical search of the private property that intrigues them. And, any 'incidentally acquired information' can be retained or turned over to local law enforcement. What's next? Prosecutions before military tribunals in the U.S.?
"The quoted phrases above are extracted from a now-public 30-page memorandum issued by President Obama's Secretary of the Air Force on April 23, 2012. The purpose of the memorandum is stated as 'balancing obtaining intelligence information. . . and protecting individual rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. . .' Note the primacy of intelligence gathering over freedom protection, and note the peculiar use of the word 'balancing.'
"When liberty and safety clash, do we really expect the government to balance those values? Of course not. The government cannot be trusted to restrain itself in the face of individual choices to pursue happiness. That's why we have a Constitution and a life-tenured judiciary: to protect the minority from the liberty-stealing impulses of the majority. And that's why the Air Force memo has its priorities reversed -- intelligence gathering first, protecting freedom second -- and the mechanism of reconciling the two -- balancing them -- constitutionally incorrect. . . .
"The Judeo-Christian and constitutionally mandated relationship between government power and individual liberty is not balance. It is bias -- a bias in favor of liberty. All presumptions should favor the natural rights of individuals, not the delegated and seized powers of the government. Individual liberty, not government power, is the default position because persons are immortal and created in God's image, and governments are temporary and based on force.
"Hence my outrage at the coming use of drones -- some as small as golf balls -- to watch us, to listen to us and to record us. Did you consent to the government having that power? Did you consent to the American military spying on Americans in America? I don't know a single person who has, but I know only a few who are complaining.
"If we remain silent when our popularly elected government violates the laws it has sworn to uphold and steals the freedoms we elected it to protect, we will have only ourselves to blame when Big Brother is everywhere. Somehow, I doubt my father's generation fought the Nazis in World War II only to permit a totalitarian government to flourish here.
"Is President Obama prepared to defend this? Is Gov. Romney prepared to challenge it? Are you prepared for its consequences?"

Communism is the religion of the antichrist. As detailed by the Reverend Martin Luther King, "First, Communism is based on a materialistic and humanistic view of life and history. According to Communist theory, matter, not mind or spirit, speaks the last word in the universe. Such a philosophy is avowedly secularistic and atheistic. Under it, God is merely a figment of the imagination, religion is a product of fear and ignorance, and the church is an invention of the rulers to control the masses. Moreover, Communism, like humanism, thrives on the grand illusion that man, unaided by any divine power, can save himself and usher in a new society--
"Cold atheism wrapped in the garments of materialism, Communism provides no place for God or Christ.
"At the center of the Christian faith is the affirmation that there is a God in the universe who is the ground and essence of all reality. A Being of infinite love and boundless power, God is the creator, sustainer, and conserver of values. In opposition to Communism's atheistic materialism, Christianity posits a theistic idealism. Reality cannot be explained by matter in motion or the push and pull of economic forces. Christianity affirms that at the heart of reality is a Heart, a loving Father who works through history for the salvation of his children. Man cannot save himself, for man is not the measure of all things and humanity is not God. Bound by the chains of his own sin and finiteness, man needs a Savior.
"Second, Communism is based on ethical relativism and accepts no stable moral absolutes. Right and wrong are relative to the most expedient methods for dealing with class war. Communism exploits the dreadful philosophy that the end justifies the means. It enunciates movingly the theory of a classless society, but alas! Its methods for achieving this noble end are all too often ignoble. Lying, violence, murder, and torture are considered to be justifiable means to achieve the millennial end. Is this an unfair indictment? Listen to the words of Lenin, the real tactician of Communist theory: 'We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, lawbreaking, withholding and concealing truth.' Modem history has known many tortuous nights and horror-filled days because his followers have taken this statement seriously.
"In contrast to the ethical relativism of Communism, Christianity sets forth a system of absolute moral values and affirms that God has placed within the very structure of this universe certain moral principles that are fixed and immutable. The law of love as an imperative is the norm for all of man's actions. Furthermore, Christianity at its best refuses to live by a philosophy of ends justifying means. Destructive means cannot bring constructive ends, because the means represent the-ideal-in-the-making and the-end-in-progress. Immoral means cannot bring moral ends, for the ends are preexistent in the means.
"Third, Communism attributes ultimate value to the state. Man is made for the state and not the state for man. One may object, saying that in Communist theory the state is an 'interim reality,' which will 'wither away' when the classless society emerges. True--in theory; but it is also true that, while it lasts, the state is the end. Man is a means to that end. Man has no inalienable rights. His only rights are derived from, and conferred by, the state. Under such a system, the fountain of freedom runs dry. Restricted are man's liberties of press and assembly, his freedom to vote, and his freedom to listen and to read. Art, religion, education, music, and science come under the gripping yoke of government control. Man must be a dutiful servant to the omnipotent state.
"All of this is contrary, not only to the Christian doctrine of God, but also to the Christian estimate of man. Christianity insists that man is an end because he is a child of God, made in God's image. Man is more than a producing animal guided by economic forces; he is a being of spirit, crowned with glory and honor, endowed with the gift of freedom. The ultimate weakness of Communism is that it robs man of that quality which makes him man. Man, says Paul Tillich, is man because he is free. This freedom is expressed through man's capacity to deliberate, decide, and respond. Under Communism, the individual soul is shackled by the chains of conformity; his spirit is bound by the manacles of party allegiance. He is stripped of both conscience and reason. The trouble with Communism is that it has neither a theology nor a Christology; therefore it emerges with a mixed-up anthropology. Confused about God, it is also confused about man. In spite of its glowing talk about the welfare of the masses, Communism's methods and philosophy strip man of his dignity and worth, leaving him as little more than a depersonalized cog in the ever-turning wheel of the state.
"Clearly, then, all of this is out of harmony with the Christian view of things. We must not fool ourselves. These systems of thought are too contradictory to be reconciled; they represent diametrically opposed ways of looking at the world and of transforming it."
In order to usurp the Christian teaching of Heaven, Communism seeks to create a Utopian society here on earth. This is worldwide system of no morality, no families, no classes and no rules. This is the "heaven" of the Communist system. Thus King proclaimed: "The theory, though surely not the practice, of Communism challenges us to be more concerned about social justice. With all of its false assumptions and evil methods, Communism arose as a protest against the injustices and indignities inflicted upon the underprivileged. The Communist Manifesto was written by men aflame with a passion for social justice. Karl Marx, born of Jewish parents who both came from rabbinic stock, and trained, as he must have been, in the Hebrew Scriptures, could never forget the words of Amos: 'Let judgment roll down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.' Marx's parents adopted Christianity when he was a child of six, thus adding to the Old Testament heritage that of the New. In spite of his later atheism and antiecclesiasticism, Marx could not quite forget Jesus' concern for 'the least of these.' In his writings, he champions the cause of the poor, the exploited, and the disinherited
"Communism in theory emphasizes a classless society. Although the world knows from sad experience that Communism has created new classes and a new lexicon of injustice, in its theoretical formulation it envisages a world society transcending the superficialities of race and color, class and caste. Membership in the Communist party theoretically is not determined by the color of a man's skin or the quality of blood in his veins."
Communists admit that their false heaven will not be achieved until they have enforced their humanistic creed world wide. Communism was devised as an atheist assault on Christianity for the purpose of destroying it.
Communism under a dictator is the government of the antichrist. Obama had already shown his Communist/dictatorial stripes. All he needed was a second term when he would be no longer accountable to the electorate.
