CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 26, 2014 — While the media wrings its hands over the formation of a caliphate by ISIL in Iraq, we should understand that we have been living under a mini-caliphate in the U.S. for nearly six years.
Barack Obama never wanted to be a “real” president of the United States. He much prefers to think of himself as a prophet. Obama came into office being hailed as a messiah, but “prophet” is more suitable to his goals during his administration.
What is happening in the Middle East with the formation of a terrorist army called ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) is no accident. Perhaps it was not the actual design of the Obama Administration, but the president’s foreign policy inexperience combined with his disinterest in international affairs, his Islamic leanings, his political correctness and his ultra-liberal ideologies have resulted in serious global consequences that are far more dangerous than we have the ability to control.
Sadly, while President Obama dithers about what to do in the Middle East, the enemy gains strength by the day.
Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters summed it up on “The Kelly File”: “When America is strong, the world complains. When America is weak, the world suffers.”
Meanwhile, there are rumblings about impeachment along with reports that House Majority Leader John Boehner intends to sue Obama for overstepping his presidential authority. At this stage of Obama’s tenure, both measures are a waste of time, energy and resources.
There is already a program in place for removing corrupt politicians from office. It is called an election.
During the campaign of 2012 it was obvious that Obama was lying to the American people about every aspect of his presidency. The pundits followed suit by making it a Republican/Democrat competition for the presidency, but it was never anything close to that. The election of 2012 was about the very survival of our country.
Obama had already shown us his stripes and nothing was going to change. The American people went to the polls and we got we deserve by re-electing the weakest, and perhaps most corrupt president in history. Now we are paying dearly for our ignorance and there are two and half more years of “Obama terror.”
That’s right, “terror.” Obama is an economic terrorist of the first order. He came into office with a bad economic situation and millions of Americans out of work. Five and a half years later, the economy is still slogging along, Americans are still looking for jobs and their healthcare program has resulted in higher taxes. In the wake of all of that, the economy grew last quarter at an annual rate of -2.9 percent.
The president told us that he was focusing like a laser on the economy. Thank goodness. Imagine what it would have been like if he had not been so diligent.
There is only one choice, and that will come in a little over four months, in November when the mid-term elections are held.
The answer is to let the administration know by our votes that we are sick and tired of the current policies in Washington. Forget about impeachment. Stop talking about legal action.
Let Obama have his elaborate White House parties and rounds of golf, but cripple his ability to run amok in Washington by minimizing his power through the ballot box.
Whether we realize it or not, America is getting a small taste of Sharia law under the Obama Administration and most of us do not like it.
If we want our freedoms back, it is time to make bold decisions in November and let this mini-American caliphate run it horrifying course.
