“This administration appears to be something unique in American history. It continually flouts Constitutional limits, rewrites individual laws, defies American traditions, and undermines Judeo-Christian morals. We have never seen its likes before and it could well take a miracle for the civil society to survive it.” (OBAMA PRIORITIES: Veterans Greeted With Barricades and Riot Police; Illegal Immigrants Welcomed with Open Arms)
For the citizen reporter, chronicling the years of Obama has been like passing through the glittering facade of a much ballyhooed new building only to discover that the space within is nothing more than a rat infested repository for rotting meat. The wonder of it all is why the majority of America’s unprofessional professional scriveners still gad about on the pavement outside, marveling at all the neon, instead of searching for the source of the awful smell.
Unlike the denizens of our ‘mainstream’ media, former left-wing journalist David Horowitz recognizes the stench of spoilage and knows rodents when he sees ’em. After all, he used to be one:
The president, his chief operative Valerie Jarrett and his chief political strategist David Axelrod all came out of the same Communist left and the same radical new left as I did, and all have remained heart and soul a part of it. As someone who turned his back on that destructive movement, I can say with confidence that they have not … Instead of calling themselves communists or socialists they call themselves liberals and progressives. This camouflage is very old. I never once heard my parents and their party friends refer to themselves as Communists. They were progressives – and registered Democrats …
Ever since Barack Obama was elected and began his radical course, American conservatives have been in a state of shock, as though they couldn’t quite believe what was happening. Until then there had been a general collusion in the practiced deceptions of the left as commentators on all sides would refer to unrepentant radicals, and dedicated socialists as “liberals,” and turn half blind eyes to their anti-American agendas. What is “liberal” about the mean-spirited intolerant people of the left, except their attitude to hard drugs, sex, and criminal behavior? Oh yes, and spending other people’s money?
… The issue is never the issue; the issue is always power: How to wring power out of the democratic process, how to turn the process into an instrument of progressive control. How to use it to fundamentally transform the United States of America — which is exactly what Barack Obama warned he would do on the eve of his election. The chosen legislative instrument to begin this transformation was Obamacare. It was presented as an act of charity, a plan to cover the uninsured. That was the “issue” as they presented it. But the actual goal of Obamacare’s socialist sponsors was a “single payer system” – government healthcare — which would put the state in control of the lives of every American, man, woman and child. That is the reason that none of the promises made about Obamacare was true …
The most important battle in the world today is not being waged in the Middle East but here at home in the United States. (The Threat We Face)
The preferred milieu of the radical is chaos. That is the environment in which he thrives, the medium in which he can best reproduce. And that is why Barack Obama will never fix any of America’s problems. His job is not to fix ’em; it’s to make ’em worse.
