INDIANAPOLIS, December 14, 2014 – Our poor president is misunderstood by an increasingly large portion of the population, as his second shellacking last month showed.
Yet his unpopularity is not because of his policies (which were all on the ballot), but because, as MIT professor and multi-million-dollar government consultant Jonathan Gruber has said many times, Americans are just too stupid to understand the nuance that is Obama.
Dinesh D’Souza, in his new book, America, says, “America’s suicide, it turns out, is the result of a plan. The plan is not simply one of destruction but also one of reconstruction—it seeks the rebuilding of a different type of country, what President Obama terms ‘the work of remaking America.’
“While Obama acknowledges the existence of the plan, he is not responsible for the plan; it would be more accurate to say that it is responsible for him. The plan preceded Obama, and it will outlast him. Obama is simply part of a fifty-year scheme for the undoing and remaking of America, and when he is gone there are others who are ready to continue the job. What makes the plan especially chilling is that most Americans are simply unaware of what’s going on. Their ignorance, as we shall see, is part of the plan. It should be emphasized at the outset that the domestic champions of American decline are not traitors or America-haters. They are bringing down America because they genuinely believe that America deserves to be brought down.”
That’s one theory; I have a different one: Obama hates America. If one starts with that hideous premise, all his actions make sense. Let’s look at a few.
As-yet unfulfilled, but perhaps the greatest tactical injury this president has wrought on America is in the Bowe Bergdahl swap. Obama, under cover of secrecy, traded a screwed up sergeant to the enemy, for five of their top strategists and tacticians.
Bergdahl is of no strategic value to the nation, but the exchange was of immeasurable value to our enemy. The president didn’t even try to get a bundle of concessions; he just wanted to help the murderous fanatics.
Bergdahl was nothing to Obama but a cover, as he (Obama) aided and abetted the future mayhem
Whatever his reasons, he is working to destroy our nation. And whoever his successors or predecessors, he is the current point of the spear and he is the one who needs, today, to be stopped.
Obamacare is both a political and economic example of his plan. It is not health care; it is insurance, and an examination of the very concept of insurance reveals that its purpose is to reduce the risk of the riskiest as the least at-risk pay for it.
Insurance companies prosper, not by paying for coverage, but for collecting premiums.
Politically, Obamacare divides the population against itself, pitting women against men, young against old, union against free workers, and active against sedentary; he can play each segment to his advantage.
Worse, in Obama’s version of “faithfully executing the laws,” Obamacare’s blatantly unlawful manipulation by the president, unopposed by not just the Republican leadership but by the zombies who vote, established a tyrannical precedent.
Which is biting all of us in Obama’s deliberate dilution of the American electorate. From the beginning of his reign, he has worked, often through his henchman and Attorney General Eric Holder, to lessen the value of the peoples’ votes.
From non-prosecution of obvious voter fraud and intimidation, through non-subtle demands that voters not be vetted, through the planned importation and dispersal of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants (many with serious criminal backgrounds), to his illegal amnesty for millions, President Obama has done everything in the book to make Americans’ votes irrelevant.
Obama’s promise to destroy mining, and particularly coal mining and use, is coming to fruition, not lawfully, but by administrative action at his Environmental Protection Agency.
The EPA is a law unto itself, targeting the economies of red states particularly, as it assumes the authority to put thousands out of work and increase energy costs on the nation, raising prices on everything and leaving our infrastructure vulnerable to unproven technology – or technology which is already proven to be inferior.
And speaking of administrative law – something not allowed by the Constitution but encouraged by lazy and cowardly legislators – Obama has weaponized the IRS, using it as Bill Clinton did, but on a much broader and nastier scale.
Though candidate Obama railed against the fraud and corruption in the VA system, as president, he has done nothing about it, except for replacing some of his top pawns and savaging some good people who sold out and did what he wanted.
Through TARP (passed during G.W. Bush’s term with Obama’s support and spent in its greatest part by Obama) and a series of “Quantitative Easing” programs at the Federal Reserve, Obama has encouraged the devaluation of the dollar, robbing savers, investors, and those on fixed incomes as he pumps up Wall Street, readying it for another bubble that’s timed to hit as soon as he’s near the end of his second term – and thus putting blame on minor players.
And the destruction of American incentive that’s due to a doubling of the National Debt during his reign cannot yet be measured. But the idea that the U.S. is “the richest nation in the world” is exactly, 180 degrees wrong: the United States of America is the most-indebted nation today, and in the history of the world, owing over $18 trillion dollars on the books, and facing another perhaps $200 trillion in unfunded obligations in the future.
Though Obama himself didn’t spend all the money, he enjoyed spending it, and he certainly did nothing to slow down the hemorrhage.
Obama’s foreign policy has consistently appeased and even encouraged enemies, even as he has made the U.S. an increasingly unreliable ally, from the Kurds in Iraq to the corrupt regimes there and in Afghanistan, to the selling-out of allies in the Middle East and the encouragement and support of radical rebel governments, to the deliberate undermining of efforts to contain Iran’s nuclear program, to opening the door to everyone, including criminals, along the border.
Lastly (last only in this column, not in reality; there are many more examples), Obama has taken on the military might of the United States and done everything he can to destroy not just the war fighting budget, but the structure and morale of the fighting units.
His caprice, based on a lack of understanding of the military and an ambiguous foreign mission for the U.S., has made a joke out of the greatest fighting force in history.
Our president wants to ruin America. He is too consistent to be merely stupid; it’s his plan, his dearest wish. No?
Why else would anyone who loves this nation work so hard to weaken its military, weaken its military, confuse its mission, divide its populace, and destroy its morale?
