Obama Losing the American Jews
Quite an interesting, well thought-out editorial from the Jewish World View that doesn’t bode well for Our Dark Overlord:
For the First Time in My Adult Life . . .
By Arnold Ahlert – Jewish World View
First, a disclaimer: this is not an op-ed column in the traditional sense. Call it more of a feeling. With a nod to Michelle Obama, for the first time in my adult life, I’m beginning to believe that government is my enemy. Not a nuisance, nor a necessary evil, but a conglomeration of self-absorbed, self-interested people working directly against the interests of the American public. People who, if Americans ever got the courage to openly rebel, would instinctively seal off Washington, D.C., rather than seriously address the source of the peoples’ discontent.
Americans are being subjected to the most lawless president and administration in the history of the nation. Can’t a get law through Congress? Screw Congress, the president will issue an executive decree and have it carried out by an agency, cabinet official or an unelected czar. He’ll have his tax-cheat Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner, take to the airwaves and literally blackmail the entire nation, telling Americans that if this gangster government can’t raise the debt ceiling without any pre-conditions, they’ll trash the entire economy as payback. Why? So all of this administration’s crony-capitalist Wall Street and banker buddies can keep making money hand over fist, without having to share it with Main Street America. So they can continue being immunized from the consequences of their momentously greedy and stupid behavior, the single worst example of which was bringing the entire world’s economy to its knees based on a single, ridiculous premise:
Real estate only moves up, not down.
As for QE2, which is now coming to an end, even as QE3is being contemplated, how many Americans really know what “quantitative easing” really is? Here’s what it really is: America is printing money to buy its own debt. This keeps interest rates low, as anyone else we would borrow money from would want reasonable assurance, aka interest, that the most profligate nation in the history of the world won’t leave them hanging. Low interest rates — as in zero, currently — allow the banks to borrow money for nothing, and artificially props up the stock market.
What does it do for small businesses who still can’t borrow, and ordinary Americans who want to save money, but can’t get more than two percent interest in anything other than the stock market? Not a damn thing good. But as many Americans are discovering, trashing the dollar is causing energy prices to “skyrocket,” just like this president and his administration wants them to, so he can wean us off fossil fuels. Yet it’s also causing food prices to skyrocket.
Are we being weaning off of eating too?
Pick an arena, any arena, and eventually the administration’s corruptive nature rears its head. Health care? The administration picks waiver “winners” and non-waiver “losers.” The Justice Department? U.S. Attorney General Eric “My People” Holder will investigate — or not investigate — whomever he wants, irrespective of impartiality. National defense? The administration will bleed American soldiers dry, making them fight endless and politically correct wars with one hand tied behind their backs, attempting to win the hearts and minds of people who couldn’t care less.
Foreign policy? Obama will spend hundreds of millions of dollars community organizing a Libyan opposition we know nothing about, even as he thumbs his nose at the War Powers Act of 1973 requiring Congressional approval for military operations which exceed 60 days. And he and his Democratic cohorts will sell Israel down the river, even as clueless DNC head, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz demands that Republicans “pledge to refrain” from bringing it up during the 2012 election campaign.
A sidebar: Debbie topped herself yesterday, saying Republicans believe illegal immigration “should be a crime.” Does a movie entitled “Debbie Does Demagoguery” have a nice ring to it?
This administration deliberately plays Americans off one another for the purpose of creating resentment and envy. The moochers and the slackers are told nothing is their own fault, that they shouldn’t have to pay a nickel for America’s upkeep, and that the only thing keeping them down is the free-market capitalist system. The genuine wealth creators (not the crony capitalists) are told they’re not paying their “fair share,” even as they already pay the lion’s share of taxes — and even as those telling them to do so are the most irresponsible stewards of American finances the country has ever known. The middle class? They’re told we’re in an economic recovery, even as housing continues to crater, they can’t find jobs, and the cost of everything keeps going up.
And above it all, we have a mainstream media so corrupt, and so willing to get on their knees for progressive ideology that virtually every story they produce can be whittled down to one idea:
Who are you going to believe, us — or your own lying eyes?
At what point does one see those who would purposefully bring this country to its knees, not as political opponents, but as genuine enemies of the nation? What is one to make of those who deliberately would turn millions of Americans into wards of the state in order to ensure their political loyalty? What is one to make of an administration that continues to allow millions of illegals to flow into America, even as they sue those who would try to prevent it? What are we to make of an administration that tells us certain entities are “too big too fail,” and that a government takeover is the only remedy for their unconscionable excesses?
Republicans are far from blameless. They have gone from irresponsible stewards of the nation’s finances, to running a pathetic candidate for president in 2008, to becoming semi-enablers of the nation’s demise. When the most strident “Republican” presidential candidate to date has been an ego-inflated blowhard with bad hair, that is a testament to Republican timidity.
The 2012 election is the most important one in modern history, and someone had better emerge from the ranks who is able to articulate that reality. Someone willing to call out this socialist/marxist president and his crony capitalist, gangster government for exactly what they are — policy by damnable policy. Someone willing to not only withstand a media as determined to destroy them as the president and his administration is, but dish it right back to both in no uncertain terms. A man or woman with the smarts to realize that it’s all a play for the independents who broke for Obama in 2008.
A warrior, not a wimp.
The Founding Fathers were smart enough to realize that no government can, or should be, loved. But I’d bet dollars to doughnuts there are more and more people like me out there who are feeling more than just a bit alienated from their elected representatives. Self-interest hacks who, day in and day out, are making a mockery of our nation.Explore posts in the same categories: Obama Sucks, politics
