Just about a week to go, Fellow Patriots. It’s hard to believe that we’ve almost completed our sentence in Obama’s Bitter Clinger Penitentiary, but we have. If you have one of those Obama countdown clocks, you’ve no doubt been staring at it for over 8 years, but soon you can retire it, stuff it in your crawlspace, and give its place on the shelf to one of those cool Trump Chia pets. In my recent columns here at Clash Daily, I have been listing the things that I will not miss when the Obamas take their grifter act down the road. Part One of “The Ten Things that we really hated about the Obama Regime” is here. In Part Two, we focused on the disaster that has been the Obama-Clinton-Kerry foreign policy.
Here is my final summary of some of the more hideous things that Obama and his merry band of Marxists have done.
The “Remaking” of America
During his inauguration, Barack Obama promised to “remake” America, which many Americans may not have realized meant to change the demographics of our country to make it more receptive to the political fortunes of liberal Democrats. It was clear to him and his fellow leftists that people whose great-grandparents had been born in this country were less inclined to reject concepts that they despise: American exceptionalism, a limited role for the federal government and rugged individualism. If he was going to transform this nation into the socialist utopia of his lifelong dreams, he would have to do more than change the country. He would have to change the people, and he was hell bent to do so even if it endangered the safety and security of American citizens. Hence the enabling of an illegal alien crime spree by the refusal to enforce the border, and to arrest and deport criminal illegal aliens, and the rush to stuff as many unveiled “refugees” from jihadist hotbeds into the heartland of America.
Item from World Net Daily in July 2016:
Despite more reports in recent weeks about Muslim “refugees” raping and attacking people in the U.S. and Europe, President Obama has ramped up his Syrian refugee program – delivering 625 to U.S. cities in one week and crossing the 6,000 mark for total Syrians who have entered the country since October.
With a little over two months before the Sept. 30 deadline to fulfill his promise to the United Nations to resettle 10,000 Syrians, Obama has delivered 6,227 Syrian migrants to 38 states and dozens of cities.
That means more than 1,000 have arrived just since July 1.
Of the 6,227 total who arrived since Oct. 1, 2015, only 23 have been Christian and 10 Yazidi. [All of the] remaining 6,194 Syrians, more than 98 percent, have been Sunni Muslim. That’s the same sect that makes up the ranks of ISIS, al-Nusra Front and other groups that are viciously persecuting Christians in Syria. Michigan, California, Arizona, Texas and Illinois are the top five states for numbers of Syrian refugees received so far in fiscal 2016. These refugees are hand-selected by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to be permanently resettled in the U.S.
Of course, as soon-to-be Attorney General Jeff Sessions noted back in August, 2106, it’s not just the unvetted Muslim new arrivals who are dangerous. He released a report detailing the activities of 20 “vetted” invaders later implicated in terrorism.
Not letting these people into our country, and making sure that they get hooked up immediately with food stamps and other “entitlement” programs, would not be “who we are,” right?
Then there is the illegal alien invasion, part of which was noted here in the Washington Examiner:
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in 2015 decided not to deport but release 19,723 criminal illegal immigrants, including 208 convicted of murder, over 900 convicted of sex crimes and 12,307 of drunk driving, according to new government numbers.
Overall, those released into virtually every state and territory of America had a total of 64,197 convictions among them, for an average of 3.25 convictions each, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies. ICE also said that the group were convicted of 8,234 violent crimes.
What’s a few more murders of Americans when weighed against the benefit of importing more new Democrat voters? Perhaps we could ask the families of Kate Steinle or Grant Ronnebeck.
The War on Law Enforcement
Barack Obama fully embraced the fraudulent “Black Lives Matter” movement, even inviting some of its leaders to the White House and praising their ability as “community organizers.” (We have no reporting on whether he joined in a chant of “Pigs in a blanket. Fry ‘em like bacon,” or “What do we want? Dead cops.”) When Ferguson, MO erupted in violent riots in 2014 after the “Hands up. Don’t shoot!” lie took hold, instead of correcting the record, and encouraging people to allow the wheels of justice to turn, he stood silent, and gave implicit approval to the “fake news” about Michael Brown’s “execution” by an evil white police officer by sending White House aides to Brown’s funeral. His race-obsessed Attorney General went to Ferguson to show solidarity with Al Sharpton and his fellow race baiters. You can’t rely on racist local officials to prosecute police misconduct, after all, except after a Ferguson grand jury found the shooting completely justified, Holder’s Department of (In)Justice had to acknowledge that that was true.
After eight years of Obama’s playing the race deck—because one card would not have been enough—the results are shameful, predictable and disgusting to all law-abiding, non-racist Americans. According to data reported by National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund in July, 2016, the number of law enforcement officers shot on the job was up 78% over the same period in the previous year.
And, how has this “Ferguson effect”, promoted and precipitated by Barack Obama and his lieutenants, affected those black lives that matter so much? One need look no further than Barack Obama’s “adopted home town,” where for the first three months of 2016 shootings were up by 88% and murders by 72%. In August of 2015, there were fewer than 500 murders in Chicago. In 2016, there were 762.
On January 1, 2017, 60 Minutes reported on the obvious reason. “[A}s killings rose, police activity fell. Cops stopped and questioned 49,257 people. A year later those stops dropped to 8,859, down 80 percent. At the same time arrests were off by a third, from just over 10,000 to 6,900.”
The Stinky, Stagnant Economy
Barack Obama has been running around the country claiming that he has gifted incoming President Donald Trump was a roaring economy. He stated on Sunday that “I think we did a really good job in saving this economy and putting us back on the track of growth.” Seriously? This from the man who is the only President in U.S. history to never have a quarter of at least three percent growth in any year of his presidency?
Last spring, Deroy Murdoch at National Review summed up the One’s many other economic failures:
During the Obama years, the number of Americans below the poverty line is up 3.5 percent.
Real median household income: down 2.3 percent.
Americans on Food Stamps — 33 million then, 46 million now: up 39.5 percent. Americans who own homes: down 5.6 percent.
National debt — $10.63 trillion then vs. $19.19 trillion last Wednesday: up 80.5 percent.
Barack Obama’s pal, the fraudulent-elected Sen. Al Franken (thanks, Felons!) used to play a character, Stuart Smalley, a pathetic devotee of self-help pap, who liked to say that “denial is not just a river in Egypt.” Whether it’s economic stagnation, the world in turmoil, or ramped up racial tension in America, or the Obamacare collapse, clearly, our 44th President is in deep denial about his failed administration. Regardless of his attempts to tap dance and spin the inescapable truth is that his legacy can be summed up in three words: President Donald Trump.
