President Obama has been steadily weakening America’s defense in an apparent effort to make Joe Biden’s prediction about massive terror attacks on the U.S. come true. His first week in office he said that he was closing Gitmo and transferring these vermin to U.S. soil effectively making whoever takes them a primary terror target. He also ordered that all water boarding stop as well, but he reserved the tactic for himself should he wish to use it. He demands that soldiers capturing enemy combatants on the battlefield read these combatants their Miranda rights despite the fact that they are on foreign soil and not American citizens. In case you are unfamiliar with the Miranda warning, it is essentially this:
"You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to speak with an attorney, and to have an attorney present during any questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be provided for you at government expense."
This essentially ties the interrogator’s hands on obtaining intelligence because if the terrorist is smart, he will opt for legal representation. Additionally, if we have to read terrorists their rights, what about the terrorists that we already have? Could they not assert that they were never advised of their rights and therefore all inculpatory information provided is now inadmissible in a court of law because of the exclusionary rule? The fact that the President intends to try these enemy combatants in a criminal court speaks volumes about this administration’s intent without any of it being good. All of this boils down to if you are white and of European origin and are Christian and are picked up on the battlefield, then it is a military tribunal for you as was done repeatedly in World War II. If you happen to be Middle Eastern and a Muslim and picked up on the battlefield, then you get read your rights, go to criminal court and get a free lawyer. Despite this, the President claims that he is hard on terror. What is wrong with this picture? Does that make any sense to you? This is the leftist insanity that we elected.
I will even go so far as to say that the people are no longer represented in the Federal government. For what else could you call it when elected legislators:
1. No longer listen to the voice of the American people
2. Do not read the legislation that they pass
3. In many instances, do not even write the legislation that they pass
4. Declare themselves in opposition to the American people and belittle them
5. Respond only to the urgings of special interests and unions
6. Freely bribe each other in order to secure votes
These are the actions of this President and Congress who through their arrogance and opposition to freedom use the United States Constitution as toilet paper and dishonor to their oaths of office each and every day. Amazingly, these same despots wonder why we are angry with them. We are angry because the United States of America was designed to be administered by a President and not a King and because Congress was to be served by the representatives of the people and not elitist aristocrats who contrive to set citizen upon citizen hoping that we will ignore their misdeeds because we are too busy sniping at one another.
Their willing lap dogs in the so called “news media” are just as bad. These charlatans abandoned any pretense of objectivity long ago and got into bed with the corrupt left and now only spew their talking points and propaganda. This is why Fox News has better ratings than all of the others combined, because they adhere to balance and journalistic ethics. This is also why the White House has waged war with Fox on at least two occasions. This is because when you are a liar, a truth telling press is your worst enemy. If you have any doubts about the media’s leanings, watch the video of Susan Rosegen’s CNN coverage below and it will become blatantly obvious. Worse, the news media even directly misleads the American public with blatant lies. For example, the coverage of a man with an AR-15 slung over his shoulder at an event where President Obama was to be was cited as a case of blatant racism and it was inferred that the man with the rifle was white, when in reality he was black. The news crew had edited the film to hide that fact so that the talking heads could go on a diatribe about racism. In that instance they had been caught, how many other instances have they gotten away with? The elitists in the media claim to love the truth, but they do reports like the one cited and howl like a scalded dog when the rare Republican gets caught lying.
Those on the left also like spending other people’s money with tax and spend policies designed to bankrupt the nation. This is why they are trying to pass a European style VAT tax of 20-25% which will be ADDED to your income tax, but wait! There’s more! They will also add the Cap and Trade tax which will save us from imaginary manmade global warming that the left invented in order to get you to concede to confiscatory taxation and Marxist policies. Not to mention that you will be taxed for four years before you even see any healthcare benefits! Good times. Did I mention that our debt is rapidly approaching 90% of our GDP, that we are about to lose our AAA bond rating, and that we are monetizing our debt? Well, if you happen to go to bed one night and wake up with America in ruins and on fire, that’s how we got there.
You see, when the housing bubble burst, the Federal Reserve Bank created another bubble by printing money like there is no tomorrow, which by the way we are still doing. Unfortunately for you, if this one bursts, it is game over. The economy will collapse and you will be in a soup line sadly wondering how all of this happened. It does not matter where you are on the planet, you will feel it should it happen. This is because the world’s economy is tied to the American economy. If it implodes, then the rest of the world’s economies will fall like dominoes. The only hope is to slowly bleed down the bubble over time, but the leftists in government don’t want to do that they want an even bigger bubble. Hence, they spend and borrow money like there is an asteroid due to arrive next week. The only question is why?
I believe that President Obama is a Marxist. His parents were Marxists. He spent all of his youth around Marxists and he sat in a Marxist church for twenty years. This is why there are so many Marxists and Maoists surrounding him today in the White House. In case you were unaware, Marxists hate capitalism because it oppresses the worker. This is why Marx enjoined the workers of the world to unite and dismantle capitalism brick by brick until it was utterly destroyed. That way, we would all be equally destitute, well with the exception of the ruling elites that is. You know, like President Obama, Representatives Frank and Pelosi, Senator Reid, et al. After all, they have to have the best of the best because they are our dear leaders. Yet all of these people claim to love capitalism, I wonder what is up with that?
Previously, I posted about not turning to violence and I stand by that position. However, the only redress we have left is our vote. That ballot is all that stands between politicians and bullets. If the ballot is cast and government ignores the results, then we are dangerously close to spilling blood because that is all a free man has left to redress the wrongs and usurpations of government. Chillingly, it seems as if this is where the left wishes to take the nation. They have politicized every principal, polarized the nation, and actively seek to silence any and all opposition. The anger that they have created is growing and extends even into the state legislatures. The fact that our elected “leaders” is cheering them on is abhorrent and irresponsible and is yet another reason why these jackals must be voted out of office.
I submit that the Federal government is dysfunctional and that our elected “representatives” represent us in name only. That the Federal government is increasingly diminishing the power of the electorate and that they are on a quest to gather as much power as they can in order to force men to bend to their will. The kickbacks, bribes, graft, and corruption all prove that Congressman and Senators think of themselves first before they give thought to us. Their ridicule of the citizens as they protest these excesses only proves my point about their unbridled arrogance and utter disregard for the American people. As such, Lady Liberty is battered, bruised, and bleeding by the actions of this Congress and President and her clothing hangs about her in tatters. I pray that you do not forget the ones who so savagely assaulted her.
Pay them back in spades on Election Day, remind the jackals in Washington D.C. that the American citizen is still in charge of this nation. Take back your nation and return Lady Liberty to her sacred place of honor. We owe her at least that much.
