The President Is Just Getting Started
American Thinker ^ | 7/17/2014 | Richard Butrick

Posted on 07/17/2014 2:55:12 AM PDT by markomalley

Even as president-elect Obama in 2008 was forming what seemed to be a centrist cabinet, the far left cleaved to the theory that Obama was a stealth leftist radical whose real agenda was their dream agenda: redress the income inequalities of the capitalist system, empower women and minorities, cripple the fossil fuel industry, and open borders and subordination of American sovereignty to the UN.

(snip)

Fast forward to 2014. President Obama is implementing his leftist policies and punishing his detractors like a Soviet dictator. In short Obama is going Soviet, as explained by analyst Brian Preston. The leftist dream agenda of open borders, green energy, income redistribution, and transference of US sovereignty to the UN is now being implemented without consent of Congress.

The president, as Mr. Preston concludes, “is just getting started.”

If we had Representatives with a set, the headline would read: "
HE IS GETTING STOPPED!"

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Over and above Obama, I blame the media and the Democrat and Republican Party for allowing this to happen. The sad thing is that the low information voters will most likely re-elect a Democrat majority in the senate along with enough GOPe senators to ensure that Obama has free reign for as long as he is in office. Kiss our Republic good-bye.

...remember commentators on here bashing anyone who spoke about Romney and saying he’s the least of two evils - getting slammed by the liberal trolls that float on this forum about how Romney is just the same, but “worst”...They keep using that word and I don’t think it means what they thought it meant!

Yeah - the day some UN punk comes into my life and says hand over this or that...not going to happen!

I watched what atrocities occurred under the UN umbrella - not going to be my fate or my families...so dream on lib!

Those aren’t liberal trolls on here. They are “principled conservatives” that know more than the rest of us. They also gave us Obama. Thank you FR purists......

“...Obama is going Soviet...”

It cannot be said often enough, and it is absolutely true.

After decades of Cold War expenditure of national treasure and Americn lives, Obama has given away the game without a shot being fired.

Yup. Right after the midterms. 2more freaking years????? A LOT of damage. I am still reeling from 2012. 4 years of office and we had a much chance to turn things round. after eight years it is going to be harder by an order of magnitude to undo all that is wrong. And that is only if the people and elected officials have the stones to do it.

As your tagline implies, our horrible fate is sealed until the states are returned to the senate.

The New Deal, Great Society, Obama, were all made possible when Congress was democratized.

We didn’t elect Romney but all those awful things that were going to happen if we voted for Romney are happening.

Obama has walked all over the STATES since he came on the presidential scene. States who didn’t vote for him, get the biggest numbers, without being forwarned. I suggest sending these plane loads to the Ma., the Vinyard, where the Chief of crime in America is planning to vacation for 16 days. Send our uninvited visitors there, unload them and let them stand on the tarmac until the Chief does something about it. I am sure those who can afford this place will take these folks in and make them feel at home.

I think Mr. Preston is right. Barry believes nothing will happen to him so he is going to go all in. We will shortly reach critical mass and I predict at some point he will have to be forcibly removed from office. I don’t mean impeachment. I mean a cadre of marines walking over to the Oval Office and escorting him out.

I can’t blame Obama for doing exactly what we said he would do.

Actually he is doing much as HE HIMSELF said he would do if people had listened a little more closely. What is amazing is how many don’t seem to realize what he is doing after almost six years of it.
