“What you’re about to see is totally classified…” — Agent Simmons, Transformers
Whosoever posits that Barack Obama’s presidency has failed knows not of which they speak. Obama promised to transform the country, and he has, though a rapid degeneration into Third World socialism may not be what the uninformed millions hoodwinked into casting their ballots for a closet communist expected. Why, only a little more than halfway through the man’s first (and hopefully last) term, and the International Monetary Fund is already predicting (according to Brett Arends in Marketwatch) the end of the Age of America:
[…] And it’s a lot closer than you may think.
According to the latest IMF official forecasts, China’s economy will surpass that of America in real terms in 2016 — just five years from now.
Put that in your calendar.
[…] We have lived in a world dominated by the U.S. for so long that there is no longer anyone alive who remembers anything else. America overtook Great Britain as the world’s leading economic power in the 1890s and never looked back.
And both those countries live under very similar rules of constitutional government, respect for civil liberties and the rights of property. China has none of those. The Age of China will feel very different.
For those who doubt that our Chief Executive holds comrades Marx & Lenin in higher regard than founding fathers Washington & Jefferson, the April report of the Cardinal Mindszenty Foundation reports on the gnarled roots of our President’s alien ideology (here), and on his many political disguises (here). James Davis in Obama Versus the Constitution (American Thinker) says:
Obama acts like a Third World socialist, like his Kenyan father, and his thinking is stunningly rigid. He seems to be woefully ignorant about basic economics, science, and technology, international affairs, and the conventions of American politics. Either that, or he is acting that way as part of his peculiar character disorder. Deliberately violating norms is a way to show contempt for “middleclassness,” as Jerry Wright calls it. It’s the bourgeois values that Karl Marx hated so much. In psychiatry, deliberate lifelong violations of accepted rules are a sign of “oppositional-defiant personality,” closely allied with grandiose narcissism. That describes Obama’s lifelong character.
The man has even admitted as much in his many volumes of autobiography. Speaking of his undergraduate days (transcripts of which he has, along with graduate school records, stubbornly refused to release), Obama said:
I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. … The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists … we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism, and patriarchy.
Citizens who question Obama’s religious preference wait in vain for this year’s traditional Presidential Easter greeting:
President Obama failed to release a statement or a proclamation recognizing the national observance of Easter Sunday, Christianity’s most sacred holiday.
By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.
The White House also failed to release a statement marking Good Friday. However, they did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day [Ed. note: by coincidence, also Comrade Lenin’s birthday]. Likewise, the president’s weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter.
In 2010, Obama was criticized for releasing an all-inclusive Easter greeting. He reached out to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and people of no faith at all in a statement about a holiday that is uniquely Christian.
When the White House released statements about Muslim holidays, no attempts were made to include Christianity or to mention a spirit of inclusivity. For example, in his 2010 statement on Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha, Obama made no references to Christianity or any other religion.
Har-de-har-har. The President’s newest mouthpiece laughs off his boss’s omission:
But Bill Whittle doesn’t find Obama funny in the least. Here, Bill hosts an episode of All in the Family, Obama-style:
The communists in Vietnam saw fit to honor Comrade Senator John Kerry and Comrade “Hanoi Jane” Fonda for their vital roles in defeating their countrymen in the late ‘conflict’ in Southeast Asia (we can’t rightly call that li’l shootin’ match a war, because none of the dissembling poltroons in Washington had guts enough to declare one).
