Dictators, Socialists marvel at Obama's destruction of America


A Column by the Editor
web posted May 11, 2009
Below: Obama portrayed as Christ with outstretched arms and a crown of thorns
COLUMN – President Obama is enjoying his lofty position with a pandering national media who fails to report his socialist, if not Marxist, agenda making great strides to nationalize major portions of our nation’s private industries within 100 days of  being in office. And he makes no bones about wanting tight-fisted control of even more, including our nation’s healthcare providers. European Socialist nations have warned Obama is moving too far left too fast and Dictator Hugo Chaves is amazed at the ease in which Obama is given carte-blanc by the US media.

With over 1,000 stories by CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, and other fawning liberal media outlets, not once has any reported Obama’s agenda being socialist. More telling, they have not mentioned once that Obama’s overreaching powers are even labeled “liberal”. In fact, they do quite the opposite calling Obama’s far left wing actions “conservative".

These are the same "unbiased" reporters who have been shown on video keeping their seat while President Bush enters the press room but all stand for Obama when he does the same.

There is truth in reporting by our major new media for you. The Obama administration is just as infatuated with this never seen before pandering of the media to a sitting president with the administration officials proclaiming “We love MSNBC” and taking every opportunity to make fun of and denigrate the only balanced media outlet Fox News. 

At this weekend’s White House Correspondents' Association dinner with over 2,500 “journalists” and other politically connected insiders attending Obama stated, "Most of you covered me; all of you voted for me. Apologies to the Fox (News) table." A joke that drew big laughs from the crowd. Drawing on his “messiah” label Obama said, “During the second 100 days, we will design, build and open a library dedicated to my first 100 days. My next 100 days will be so successful; I will complete them in 72 days. And on the 73rd day, I will rest."
 
Those remarks also drew laughter, but remember, a joke is only funny when it has a basis in reality.

Forget the news reports, just take time to examine what Obama has done in the first 100 days, and what he plans to do in the next 100 days.

Obama has seized control over a major portion of the auto industry, the banking industry, and has his eye set on taking over the largest private sector industries healthcare and energy. The Democrats and Obama are seeking to pass “hate crime” laws that will tell preachers what they can preach, and jail them for speaking out against homosexuality, but will shield pedophiles as a “protected class”. Furthermore, also being considered is the government silencing dissenting opinions of the Obama administration under the cute sounding “fairness doctrine”.  

He has already saddled this nation with a debt which more than twice as large as that of all presidents before him, and has proposed, and found support for in the Democrat controlled Congress, for a budget that spends more money than all presidents in our entire history combined. Far beyond the total production of American goods by the private sector.

The only growth his administration has produced is in the size and power of the federal government as private sector jobs are being lost at a rate of over half a million a month.

He has given ACORN, a community agitation group he worked for and has already been charged with federal voter fraud during his election, a major part in the 2010 Census after moving it from under the control of the Commerce Department to being directly under his control.

Obama’s true colors continue to seep outward including his notable disdain for the Christians in the US. He refused to hold an event recognizing the National Day of Prayer, which all previous presidents have done, had Jesus removed from a backdrop of a speech at Georgetown University, but has no problem bowing to a Muslim king before apologizing how horrible America is.

Harry Knox, an adviser to President Barack Obama's Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, accuses Pope Benedict XVI of "insulting Jesus" in statements about condom use. Knox, a homosexual-rights activist and director of the Human Rights Campaign’s Religion and Faith Program, says the leader of the Roman Catholic Church is “hurting people in the name of Jesus” with no apologies from the Obama administration.

His administration has moved to fund abortions with tax dollars, cut funds for slain police officers, and his Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano has labeled basically any voter that did not support Obama as a possible or suspected terrorist. Furthermore, the liberal Democrats under his direction have entered a bill that would outlaw anyone “suspected” of “possible” terrorist activity to be banned from owning a gun.

The only industries that has boomed since the election of Obama is gun manufacturing and distributors and both have the Obama administration placing targets squarely on their backs. Recent polls show Americans appose "gun control" more than ever since the election of Obama. 

Most importantly, this is just the first 100 days. He has 1,360 more to go to destroy our country further.
