WE ARE THE ONES WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for." -President Barack Obama
There is a dangerous consistency to President Barack Obama that, thus far, is proving elusive to many people. This elusiveness, of course, is promoted by a media that marches in lockstep to the wishes of this administration. The recent protests over fraudulent elections in Iran and the President's belated and lukewarm response is, in fact, quite consistent with his much more aggressive reaction to the ouster of President Manuel Zelaya in Honduras. Understanding the underlying principles that drive President Obama's actions in both instances is the key to interpreting the diabolical consequences he and his cohorts have in store for us in the United States as they attempt to implement their plans for "social justice."
"It is not productive, given the history of US and Iranian relations to be seen as meddling in Iranian elections." -President Barack Obama
It should appear obvious that an American president should want to be seen as supporting the people in Iran as they rise up in protest against a repressive, and oppressive, regime that has kept them bound to Islamic fascism for over thirty years. It should also be equally obvious that President Obama would be extremely reluctant to be seen as supporting protesters of a legally recognized government. After all, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was "legally" elected, just as was President Obama, and the similarities don't end there.
That the Iranian presidential election bears all the hallmarks of a "rigged" election with a predetermined outcome does not intrude on President Obama's perception of its legality. Democracy, it would appear, is only a shallow facade, not a deep and fundamentally held principle of this President. That there were "irregularities" in the process is of no concern to him.
One of the primary grievances against this election was the tendency for districts to have more votes cast than there were voters. This is just the type of "irregularity" that wouldn't bother Obama...and why should it? If you will recall, this is the same "irregularity" that turned up in the highly contested election for the Senate seat from Minnesota this year. The very election which has resulted in comedian Al Franken effectively stealing the election. Republicans rightly protested many "irregularities" in that election process such as votes being "found" during the recount in the trunk of an election official's car. Conveniently, all these newly discovered votes seemed to overwhelmingly favor Franken. When the recount began Franken trailed incumbent Norm Coleman by 250 votes, yet after the recount he led by just as many votes. Likewise, in Iran, Mahmoud Ahmidinijad managed to wind up with still more votes during the recounting process. Imagine that!
Strangely enough, just as in Minnesota, several voting districts had more more votes counted than there were voters. However, this is a problem that can be solved...and don't you know how to do it? You get someone to go out and register as many people as possible. It doesn't matter if the people registered actually exist. All that matters is that you increase the voter rolls. If you increase the number of registered voters then you can arrange for your candidate to get as many votes as they need to win without risking detection by having more votes than voters. It is a tactic sure to win in especially close elections where recounts are certain to be done.
Does this sound familiar? Have we heard of anyone recently registering a lot of new voters and getting caught for their registrations being fraudulent? By God, I think we have heard of such a thing haven't we? Our friends at ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) have been charged in over a dozen states for committing this very act! Often in the most brazen and ridiculous manner. In Las Vegas, authorities said the group's petitions included the names of the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys, who could reasonably be expected to be registered somewhere other than Nevada. They even went so far as to register Mickey Mouse...several times, in several states.
The media dismiss these charges by trying to convince us there is no real harm accomplished by these phony registrations. Yet stuffing the ballot box with extra votes for your candidate is a tried and true method for rigging elections. Registering voters AND making sure that only registered votes are counted is how we attempt to prevent ballot stuffing from happening. That is why we KNOW there were crimes committed in Minnesota where there were more votes than voters in twenty five counties! If ACORN had succeeded in registering more voters in those districts it might well have gone undetected. We must take these fraudulent registrations seriously. In 2008 ACORN signed up 1.3-million voters nationwide!
President Obama, however, is a product of ACORN and has benefited greatly from these "extra-legal" practices. He cannot acknowledge these crimes whether they occur in Iran, Minnesota or any of over a dozen states where charges have been filed without implicating himself. Do I need to point out that voter fraud has a long history in Chicago politics? Some things are as obvious as they appear. So how could President Obama possibly stand up for free and fair elections in Iran? He can't. He does NOT support free and fair elections. He supports outcomes. Remember, this man is part of the "by any means necessary" crowd...and he means it!
"The Iranian government must understand that the world is watching. We mourn each and every innocent life that is lost. We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people."
"Martin Luther King once said: 'The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.' I believe that. The international community believes that." -President Barack Obama
It always bothers me that Obama and his ilk throw the word "justice" around so often. Their idea of justice is like an algebra equation. They know what the outcome must be, they are just solving for a variable that will accomplish it. Iran should be very wary that our president wishes "justice" for them. His "justice" is not such that he can stand with their people against a repressive government....but hey, at least he did ask them to stop killing the protesters. One questions the sincerity of even that lightweight gesture when his own UN ambassador had this to say:
"The political situation in Iran is for the Iranians to work out internally." -Susan Rice, UN Ambassador
But of course, no meddling.
"I've made it clear that the United States respects the sovereignty of the Islamic Republic of Iran and is not interfering with Iran's affairs." -President Barack Obama
The Iranian people have not, and will not receive even so much as an "atta boy" for their efforts to free themselves from their shackles. This, in spite of the fact that the Iranian people are trying to do exactly what Israel may soon feel compelled to do militarily. If successful, the Iranian could disarm this entire nuclear nightmare, yet our President does...nothing.
This is not the case in Honduras. Our calm and disinterested President is all about meddling in this Central American country. In the aftermath of the Honduran army's physical removal of the president of their country, our president was quick to condemn what was, for them, a reasonable and legal action. The Honduran constitution clearly states that presidents can only serve one term in office. President Manuel Zelaya , following the model of his socialist mentor Hugo Chavez, was attempting to get around this inconvenient law and set up a referendum that would allow the people a chance to vote on a change of that law. You know, another one of those free and fair elections that the "by any means necessary" crowd specializes in manipulating. The Honduran supreme court wisely, and rightly, saw this as a usurpation of authority and therefore authorized the army to remove the president...and they did. His replacement will simply finish out the remaining time and hold elections on schedule. Considering that violent overthrows are commonplace in this part of the world, this is a rather peaceful return of power to the people of Honduras. It is actually President Zelaya who was attempting a coup by trying to make himself a permanent president. It was the Supreme Court and the army that acted in the defense of liberty and democracy.
"We believe that the coup was not legal and that President Zelaya remains the president of Honduras, the democratically elected president there. It would be a terrible precedent if we start moving backwards into the era in which we are seeing military coups as a means of political transition, rather than democratic elections." -President Barack Obama
Why such a different, bold and quick response from our president in this instance when he was so lackadaisical in responding to the Iranian uprising? Barack Obama is what is often referred to as a "college socialist." If you have ever attended college then you should be familiar with the type. They are a group of perpetual adolescents who are always looking for justification for not only their perceived grievances against society, but also for their perceived sense of self-importance. The shallow idealism and man-made morality of socialism provides them with both. They get to proselytize against the selfishness of individualism and capitalism while also promoting themselves as an educated "elite," rightfully entitled to dispense "social justice" and fix the world to their liking. It really isn't so much politically idealistic as it is arrogant and and condescending. Its the old "Divine Right Of Kings" mentality with them as both the divine and the kings. Therefore they feel both morally and intellectually unassailable. Now we have elevated one of these "know it all" adolescents to be leader of the free world. God help us.
Like all adolescents, these Marxists are entirely dedicated to scheming and deceiving. If we are foolish enough to let them scheme their way into positions of power, they will betray the people who voted them into office by working to destroy the machinations of free society. We have seen this all too often, whether it be Obama's promises to govern in a fiscally responsible manner or Sonia Sotomayor's chameleon-like performance before the Senate, denying her history of racial preferences and judicial activism and lying to make herself sound like an adherer to strict constructionism in interpreting the constitution. The ends always justify the means to these people. Once in positions of power they will attempt to force changes in the law through dubious manipulations of the parliamentary system or reinterpretation of existing laws through the courts. Sound familiar?
The American Democratic Party has been the primary host to just such political schemers for the last century and now they have arrived at the point where it is hard to view them as anything less than an organized criminal institution. They know that they have a short period of time as the majority party and that none of their initiatives will stand up to public scrutiny. Therefore we have had the debacle of a stimulus bill, the largest spending spree in all of human history, passed in a rush with NO ONE HAVING READ THE BILL! But hey it worked the first time so the Democrats have passed a budget, and an omnibus bill the same way. Worse, the House of representatives likewise passed the Cap and Trade bill without even having a finished version at the start of the voting debate!
In every instance the idea is to get a law passed before we can find out what it is. Now they intend to target our health care with the same tactics. Mandating that EVERYONE have health care and making citizens pay for the health care of other citizens are NOT the actions of a free country. This is an illegal, unconstitutional coup, of our entire society! Once they intrude into this part of our lives they will have total control over us. Everybody is related to someone who needs major medical care even if they don't, as of yet, need it themselves. You will become a docile and obedient citizen to make sure they get that care now won't you? Don't say politics won't play a part in deciding who will and who will not receive certain medical procedures. It will. You will obey. Don't say it can't happen here. It is happening here. How fast do you think they will try to pass this health care monstrosity? No need to worry, it will NEVER be read unless or until it becomes law.
Which brings me back to the theme of this writing, which is Obama's entirely consistent view of the Iranian and Honduran situations. The one thing President Obama and his democratic accomplices in congress truly fear are exactly the two things happening in Iran and Honduras. Why would Obama support the Iranian people's attempt at overthrowing a "legally elected" government when he and the congress are themselves enacting unpopular legislation aimed at giving them greater and permanent control in our own country? As more and more people here are slowly coming to see what Obama has in store for our future, we just might follow Iran's initiative and rise up against the intolerable actions of the Obama administration...and we are an ARMED citizenry! To support a peoples revolution in Iran may soon foreshadow the one he is provoking here.
Then consider that in Honduras it was the army, with the blessing of the Supreme Court, that acted in defense of their constitution. I challenge the United States military to remember that they too swore an oath. This one:
I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.
Every soldier in the United States military has to swear this oath at the time of every enlistment. You will clearly see that a soldiers first duty is to DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION. Presidents with dubious citizenship records who exceed constitutional authority may have to be REMOVED by the military. Supreme Court justices who deny constitutional law, such as interpreting that citizens do not have the right to bear arms, may have to be REMOVED. There are reasons the constitution is constructed as it is written. It cannot be legally changed by judicial fiat. Likewise, no president can legally CHANGE America. The attempt, in and of itself, is acceptable grounds for the people, or the military, to act in defense of our country. We have a legal right and a legal obligation to remove and replace government officials who exceed, betray or deny the constitution's words.
President Obama is loathe to support any actions to defend the rights of a people to self-rule under a constitutional government anywhere because he is busy attempting to disassemble our constitutional government here. And he has only just begun.
