Given the state of our country today, after five years under the wise stewardship of our first post-American president, the fact that millions of our citizens are not in the streets demanding the impeachment and removal of Barack Hussein Obama puts a very depressing fact into sharp focus. The Left’s 100-year campaign to dumb down and numb down the population has been depressingly successful. How else to explain the apparent shoulder shrug that greets the current state of our country? Consider the following facts:
In 2012, after Congress refused to pass the DREAM Act, which would have allowed people who crossed the border illegally with their parents to stay in the country legally and have a path to citizenship, the Obama administration said “screw Congress!” and decided to allow them to stay through executive fiat. Nearly a half million took advantage of King Barack’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which began in August, 2012, approximately 2 months before the 2012 election, which I know had to just be a coincidence. In addition, and even worse, the Obama regime released approximately 36,000 criminal illegal aliens, including murderers and rapists, in 2013.
This week, Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency made good on Obama’s pledge to destroy the coal industry, a policy that will cost every single person in America hundreds of dollars in increased energy costs, and which will destroy jobs, especially middle class jobs.
The upending of the best health care system in the world, which despite being less than perfect, was satisfactory for 85% of the population because, while it might have been good for the denizens of those despised suburbs, the Ward and June Cleavers of the world, didn’t serve the Downtrodden, the traditional “victims” of racist, unfair, Amerika.
And of course, most recently, the latest outrage, the release of five Taliban terrorist masterminds, devoted with every fiber of their being to killing as many Americans as possible, which Obama acknowledges they will set about doing as soon as they can, in exchange for traitorous deserter, Bowe Bergdahl. His release was announced in a bizarre, pageant of crazy in the Rose Garden, featuring the deserter’s jihad-loving old man consecrating the White House in Arabic, followed by the laughable statements from administration designated liar Susan Rice about his honorable service and our refusal to “leave anyone behind.” Many hearing that statement were left scratching our heads, wondering what Bergdahl, who walked away from his post with a compass and a knife and who clearly left his unit behind, had to do with that pledge to those who serve honorably.
Then there are the Benghazi murders and the Fast and Furious gun running scandals. U.S. Marine Andrew Tahmooressi, currently being held in a Mexican jail after taking a wrong turn, and his family must be very confused about all the self-righteous declarations from Obama mouthpieces about not leaving any American serviceman or woman behind. I guess the exception is when one of those service people is accused of doing the gun running that Attorney General Eric Holder had dibs on himself. Brian Terry has yet to weigh in on the Obama administration’s commitment to keeping faith with those who serve our nation. Speaking of those who serve, some cynics think that Barack Obama and his handlers were hoping that the Bergdahl victory (for the enemy) would distract everyone from the scandal involving the greedy, lying bureaucrats in the Veterans Administration and their disgusting mistreatment of our heroes.
There are so many examples of Obama administration lawlessness, incompetence, deceit and malfeasance that it’s impossible to catalogue them all.
The really sad thing is that every single one of these disgusting events was completely foreseeable. Barack Obama’s radical ideology was never hidden. His philosophy and plans are, and always have been, right out of the Communist Manifesto. Granted he was able to distract and confuse the less observant with his risible hopey-changey double talk, but the reality was barely concealed.
Those of us who do pay attention can only shake our heads. Have we turned into a nation of supplicant subjects, concerned only about whether they can go out for dinner or watch Dancing with the Stars while our country is being destroyed? Can so many really be so clueless about what is going on? Why are so many apparently comfortably numb?
I don’t know about you, but, try as hard as I do, it’s extremely difficult for me to witness the current state of affairs in this great nation without despising the low-information, irresponsible, silly fools who voted for a man who clearly was a hard-wired, anti-American leftist, steeped in racial resentment, rage and Marxism his entire adult life for the U.S. Senate in 2004, not to mention for the office of President of the United States. Do you hold them responsible? If not, who do you think should be blamed for enabling the shredding of our precious Constitution and the “remaking” of America?
