Rubbing Our Noses in His Victory and Radicalism
Townhall.com ^ | January 11, 2013 | David Limbaugh

Posted on 01/11/2013 2:20:31 AM PST by Kaslin

Hey, folks, remember the good old days when candidate Barack Obama at least pretended to be bipartisan and conciliatory? Now it's as if he's on a mission to prove he was faking it.

Obama is behaving like a bitter ex-spouse who knows all our hot buttons and delights in pushing them. He is governing by crisis, fear, alienation, cronyism and anti-constitutional fiat. He is openly flaunting his militant radicalism, as if he's trying to provoke us -- and his second term hasn't even begun.

He is horrifying all Americans who have the slightest concern about our deficits and debt, refusing to address them, demonizing and obstructing those who are, and flagrantly lying about both by pretending he's the one tending to our national solvency.

Though he never would have been foolish enough to make a major production of the gun issue during the campaign, he is exploiting the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., to press for stringent gun control measures. He's playing his leftist constituents' emotions like a fiddle, encouraging them to ignore the facts and statistics and join him in imposing measures that violate the Second Amendment.

Nor is there any tolerance for dissent from Obama and his leftist cohorts, as we've seen with his selective assault on religious liberty. If you disagree with their proposals, then you simply don't care about the death of schoolchildren -- just as if you oppose unending extensions of unemployment benefits because the empirical evidence shows it hurts people in the long run, you're heartless. Or if you oppose open borders, you are a racist.

Remember when Obama told an open-borders crowd that he couldn't enact the DREAM Act without Congress, only to change course shortly thereafter and implement many of its provisions via executive order?

He got away with that, so why not try the same thing with guns? It's not just his proposed actions that are unconstitutional; so is his method of imposing them. Vice President Joe Biden said Obama could and would take executive action to change the law.

In his gun control initiative, Obama is planning on using the same tactics of corporate bribery and cronyism he used to buy off major opponents of Obamacare. His ploy is to craft the law in a way that will benefit businesses, such as Wal-Mart, that sell guns.

If you are operating under the assumption that this nation is still operating under the old checks and balances system established in the Constitution that leftist professors are now openly condemning as obsolete, then you haven't been keeping up with Obama's pattern of governance through administrative regulations.

Tom Donohue, the CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, described the tsunami of new regulations coming out of Washington: 447 new rules are planned for the Dodd-Frank financial reform law, and you can be sure they'll function to thwart, as much as facilitate, the law's stated purposes. Obamacare's massive regulations will impose federal control over aspects of our lives not remotely contemplated by the Framers.

The Environmental Protection Agency is at war with conventional energy producers and is using its unchecked regulatory power as a weapon of mass destruction -- destroying the coal industry, devastating producers of oil and natural gas, and dictating unattainable gas emission standards to force us out of our cars, for starters.

Freedom isn't the only issue here; a National Association of Manufacturers study shows that six EPA regulations alone could cost $630 billion, millions of jobs and up to 4.2 percent of gross domestic product. The EPA isn't just an unchecked regulatory agency issuing its edicts outside the reach of normal accountability; reports have surfaced demonstrating collusion between this corrupt, politicized agency and environmental activists.

Meanwhile, Obama is also gratuitously rubbing our faces in the dirt with his recent appointments. He nominated Chuck Hagel for secretary of defense despite Hagel's unmasked hostility toward Israel and his softness on Iran -- and then trotted out the hapless Jay Carney to deny both, effectively imploring us to abandon our rational and sensory faculties.

He is appointing White House chief of staff Jack Lew to replace Timothy Geithner as treasury secretary. Lew is widely known to be a strong liberal and partisan Democrat who, according to a senior House GOP aide, "has consistently stood in the way of efforts to deal with our debt and deficit." He reportedly approaches these issues with the same uncompromising militancy Obama does, issuing his demands and repeating them over and over while refusing to listen.

Obama also intends to appoint John Brennan as his new CIA director. Brennan told us in 2009 that Obama doesn't describe our fight against jihadis as a "war on terrorism." He said that we need not only to defeat al-Qaida and its allies but to address ignorance, poverty and repression and that we should reach out to "moderate" elements of the Hezbollah terror group. He calls Jerusalem "Al-Quds," its Arabic name.

Obama may not believe we're at war with terrorists, but he's firmly at war with Republicans and conservatives.

He’s the anti-American m President and the GOP is the Useless Party.

I contacted my GOP Congresscritters in New Jersey about this and STILL have not received a response from them.

The GOP should be our FIRST political objective. It needs to be swept aside and replaced by a functional alternative party to the Democrat-Socialists.

Only when the Carl Roves, Dana Perinos, Bill Bennetts, Bush Klan, Romneys, etc are driven from our midst will we able to effectively challenge the Democrats.

They are single issue candidates - fiscal issues. They forget or ignore the fact that the fiscal issues are just ONE of a HOST of serious ills facing America from Socialism and the ONLY remedy to ALL of them is a return to the ORIGINAL INTENT of the Constitution and the death of the Living Constitution concept AND “Political Correctness”.

The American colonists won a successful war against the British with only about 33% of the population supporting them. We have at LEAST 48% and that doesn’t count conservatives who couldn’t overcome their political nausea and pull the lever for Romney.

This is why so many conservatives are cocooning. It is over! It was over when the election returns came in. Barack Obama and like-minded socialist radicals have taken over the execuktive branch of gov’t. Coupled with a complacent Congress we are now in a state of near tyranny. The Constitution to them is not worth the paper it is written on. Gun control by executive fiat will now be the rule of the land. Uncontrolled gov’t spending at the expense of the working middle class will be the norm. All sorts of perversion will be the dominant value pattern in the country. We lost it when prayer was kicked out of the schools in 1963, when the hippies became the teachers of our young and the country got addicted to their gov’t checks. This is my morning rant-now have a good day. I’m going gold panning.

“Obama may not believe we’re at war with terrorists, but he’s firmly at war with Republicans and conservatives.”

He is at war with white America, and only won the votes of those who were being paid (in some way or other) to vote for him. He knows he is unpopular (even his supporters are ashamed, and hide their support now). He acts as though he can hear us parents, as we tuck our children into bed, telling them to pray for the end of his reign because he works for the Devil. He is the champion of the bottom-feeding welfare recipients, and will be remembered as such for centuries.

The days of large rallies and Obama bumper stickers were over years ago; now it is President Foodstamps against the working taxpayers who provide them.

I don't know about Obama's effect on others, but his in-your-face stuff makes me hate him.

But what's worse - I hate anybody who supports him. Deep, dark, visceral hatred, even for my Democrat relatives and in-laws.

Wonderful job bringing us all together, there Obama.

“In the end it will be his downfall.”

I respectfully disagree. Unfortunately it will our downfall and our rapid destruction as a nation. Obama is well on his way to meet his boastful promise of “Fundamentally changing the United States of America.” Who will stop him?

Unless he has some sort of an injury that hobbles his handwriting, that “signature” is SILLY. - Obama joked about it; but his signature is the same sort of pretentious mishmash. - Unreadable signatures have evolved into the classic mark of the so-called “educated and intelligent”.

.....Remember these words from a certain movie: “I’ll be back”.

That should be the headline for the conservatives.

Have a good day. :)

Delisting Routine Eye Exams From Health Plan Resulted In Fewer Necessary Eye Exams For Patients With Diabetes
10 Jan 2013

The delisting of routine eye exams from the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) for healthy adults under age 65 has resulted in lower rates of recommended eye screening for people with diabetes, states a study published in CMAJ - even though eye exams for people with diabetes are still covered (Canadian Medical Association Journal).

But think about all the damage he's determined to do before the jig is up, so to speak.

Look at what Hitler did before he was overreached. Mark Antony practically destroyed the Roman nobility with his purges, before he was himself done in by his dalliance with Cleopatra. God only knows how many people Idi Amin, Henri Christophe, and the Khmer Rouge politburo killed before they were overreached.

NRA Calls Biden Meeting ‘Attack on Second Amendment’
Thursday, January 10, 2013 04:54 PM

By: Todd Beamon

The president of the National Rifle Association said on Thursday that there was no negotiation with the Obama administration on gun rights in an effort to stem violence in the wake of the shootings at a Connecticut elementary school last month.

“There isn’t on guns,” NRA President David Keene told CNN. “There is not on guns, not that I can see.”

Anyone surprised that Obama’s mask has come off just wasn’t paying attention. He will ram as much through via executive order (lawful or not) and dare people to stop him. He knows the press will never lift a finger. they would probably justify a restriction on free press they are so in the tank. The GOP has proven itself to be worthless in challenging him. It’s going to be a very long 4 years and the damage might not be reversible.

I understand your feelings. I didn’t think I could hate a person as much as I hate Bill and Hillary Clinton. Obama has taken me to a new level of contempt. I hate the so-called “Americans” who voted this leftist POS into office to foment the destruction of our society. This includes relatives and siblings. My tagline states my views on Barack Obama.

I guess if there is any silver lining to the 2012 election it is the fact that so many people voted against Obama. Not enough, but still a lot of people.
