Standing inside of the Oval Office as a newly elected President of the United States is not the time for that person to begin to learn about what it means to be a free American. Such fundamental knowledge and wisdom has to come in with the President on Day 1, and before taking the all-important oath of office. In fact, citizens have to be clear about where that person stands on issues to know whether or not they can trust the new President with that job. As we approach Inauguration Day, that does not appear to be the case with Barack Obama.
No potential President will ever be qualified to have oversight of the defense of this nation who refuses to make a personal, honest, and decisive commitment to the American constituency beyond party affiliation, our nation and God, or does not, in earnest, pledge to protect and preserve the United States constitution, and to defend this nation from all enemies foreign and domestic, so help me God.
For centuries, America has been known and respected as the leader of the free world. At the same time, she has been denigrated by people she has welcomed onto these shores who, themselves, have masqueraded as Americans to cover up their ongoing attempts to destroy this nation from within and without. As a result, too many trusting Americans have been blinded by an onslaught of revolutionaries in the form of Black Nationalists, Black Muslims, Black Panthers, Islamists, Socialists, Communists and even friends embedded within the fabric of the religious, political, legal, judicial, economical, and educational ranks of America.
What Does This Have To Do With An Obama Administration?
Throughout his primary and general 2008 presidential campaigns, Obama repeatedly stated "This is not about me, but it is about all of you." Actually, I believe he knew it was always about him. And, now that he is being touted as the President-elect, his unstated goal should be all the more troubling to every American who cares about the safety of this nation.
After Obama came to live on the Mainland, having lived in Hawaii, the 50Th state, with his maternal side of the family after they reportedly had moved there from Leavenworth, Kansas, before his birth, he set out on a mission to change this nation in a way most Americans never really had to give much thought to, because they must have believed that our political leaders would be true to their oath to protect us from enemies foreign and domestic.
Before Obama grew up and entered Harvard University and the other colleges before then, he already knew about the differences between Marxism, Leninism, Alinsky Socialism, American Capitalism, and Russian Communism from the days of his childhood, when he experienced life under Socialist dictatorships and friendships.
He learned enough early in life to know that Socialism was introduced into the world merely to be the means to institute Communism into the mainstream of a Democratic nation. And, as the child of Socialism, he understood that it would not take too much longer before Communism would gain a stronghold in American society. After all, he knew what clues to watch for.
No doubt Obama has made a life-long study of Socialism by reason of his birth offshore and foreign heritage through his Kenyan Muslim Luo father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., and Muslim family members and African traditions; and, also, through his Indonesian Muslim stepfather, Lolo Soetoro. Obama became a child of foreign civilian unrest, war, Socialist dictatorships, and revolutions in that part of the world where he has lived or visited outside of the United States. And, despite protestations and denials to the contrary by Obama and many of his supporters to deflect criticism and objections, his principal goal has remained to become the leader who would usher Communism into America.
Can we surmise that Obama and his partners do not know that? Or shall we take him at his much televised word to "Joe the Plumber" and, subsequently, the entire nation during his recent campaign where he was caught on video stating that he intends to "spread the wealth around" by taking from those who have and giving to the have nots and, also, by heavily taxing the rich?
The GEN X babies, including the 1960s, of which Obama is also one, might not think so but their parents and grandparents have known the blessings from the American way of life to pursue constitutional liberty, freedom, and everything that is righteous and just. Obama appears to have had every possible advantage and, yet, he has refused to recognize the blessings of being American.
How can we know that to be the case? By his actions, speeches, and the books he has written, we can ascertain that his life's work has been directed towards destroying, and not building up, this nation. And that's just from the part we do know about him. But, we ought not have to try to fill in the blanks of a man who is set to be President of America!
After nearly 20 months of Obama campaigning and making promises to the American people that he made just to become President while having served as a former state of Illinois Senator and as a current United States Senator in Washington, D.C., he has already begun to disavow his statements about his promise to begin a draw down of American troops from Iraq by a date certain, and he had said that his own lack of administrative and foreign experience did not matter. He also maintained that he could quickly turn around the nation's economic crisis, among other quickly forgotten promises that he had made while on the stump.
Throughout all of that time during the campaigns and now, the mainstream news media spent the majority of their time talking about mundane political and nonpolitical personalities rather than focusing on crucial issues concerning Obama's qualifications to have been in the Presidential race in the first place.
Consequently, many of the people gathered up by his political party, professional "partners," and from among anybody they could find from living in dorms to living on park benches and in cardboard boxes. Many of their voters knew little to nothing about Obama or other current Democratic Party officials. Yet, he is embraced by the same media, politicians, and a lot of citizens, as being a credible candidate who is qualified to serve in office following President George W. Bush's term expiration on January 20, 2009.
The United States Constitution Is A Lasting Force Unto Itself
Our nation has just suffered through what has to be the most aggressive election in this nation ever, because more Americans had begun to understand how much their constitutional foundations and freedoms were at risk in the hands of Barack Obama. Yes, he is a black, skilled community organizer and orator. He knows what words to say which will grip the hearts of people to listen, hear, and to follow behind him all the way to Hell, if need be. So, here we are. Socialism, having done its job, is in the rear-view mirror moving behind us. But Americans need to understand that we are looking into the very face of the full-blown incoming Communism on our Homeland, mainly because too many elected leaders fell asleep at the switch and many still are.
Along with the questionable results of the 2008 Presidential and Congressional elections, we are also watchful of further conspiratorial attempts to destroy Capitalism, to turn away from the fading days of Socialism that is silently standing around the fringes of society while waiting for the incoming Communism to enter. It is to be the change that Obama promised would be our new way of life but without uttering that word. Nevertheless, we remain mindful that this close call to an overthrow of our government is the result of too many media and politicians having ignored the heinous prospect of Obama trying to make that switch either in the light of day or from under the cover of darkness.
Our constitution has not just begun to come under assault from among many dissident factions. It has been slowly building over many years and the anarchists have just changed their tactics. They have replaced their outside uniforms and banners with the outward clothing of education and self-made, pretentious respectability and cooperation in order for them to be able to gain the support of the American people to go along with their silently growing anarchistic agenda, which still remains as their intended violent revolution to overthrow the United States government via either mandated legislative changes to the constitution or, heaven forbid, by Executive Order.
Unless organizations and individuals honestly and openly declare their true agenda beforehand by publishing it when seeking any elected or appointed office, we can conclude only that any gains they may make to any such political positions would be fraudulent, illegal, and against the rule of law for lack of full disclosure. After all, they would be vying to obtain what constitutes as a contract with the American people.
From Socialism to Communism Birthed in the United States
During the late 1940s to the mid-1950s, following many ongoing Congressional subcommittee hearings pertaining to unAmerican activities and sedition filed against suspected and real Communists and Socialists, all Americans understood those agendas would never progress in this country as long as the entire nation was made aware that their freedoms were being severely threatened. So, those adverse revolutionary organizations began to change their format and work to maintain their agendas by, first, changing their original political terminology. And, after they had redefined their missions, goals, and intentions, they attached themselves onto the Democratic Party, because they had become known as the party of the working class people. Eventually, the Democratic Party split and what we see in Obama's half of the party is what has become known as the progressive New Left Democratic Socialist plank or the more-than-far left. It was devised to conform to whatever it took for their party to side step any possible objections from elected officials and citizens whether coming from the Right, moderates, or centrists in the United States Congress who also were elected to represent their American constituents.
On August 1, 1961, The New York Times, when it was known to have been more of a credible journalistic source, published an article entitled, "Text of Soviet Party's Draft Program," developed by then Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev from a Leninist document.
Overtime, planks from the Socialist and Communist programs have been adopted and publicly articulated by Obama. They are also supported by the majority of the Democratic Party. Yet, the mainstream news media have refused to do their homework.
Journalistic investigations in America, with all of their available syndication billions of dollars and people, and highly technological communication tools, have lain dormant, except to praise and raise Obama up as the national and international savior of the United States and the entire world. Never mind that so much of that propagandist copy has been provided from the pens of Obama's own publicists. More the pity, Obama has believed his own press despite the fact that his words and actions belie their flowery assertions about him and his campaign.
Let me review for you some of those Communistic platforms quoted from the Soviet Party's Draft Program. Although this article was published in 1961 and the USSR has since been broken up as a nation, when that paper is read within today's context of Barack Obama's New Left agenda, it just might provide the impetus needed for Americans to finally get informed and understand the seriousness of these changing political times in which we find ourselves. However, Khruschev's revision of Lenin's Socialist plans, as written, remain relevant to Obama's unsettling plans. The article is quoted, in part, as follows:
- The Socialist world is expanding; the capitalist work is shrinking. Socialism will inevitably succeed capitalism everywhere. Such is the objective law of social development. Imperialism is powerless to check the irresistable process of emancipation.
- The development of the world Socialist system and the world capitalist system is governed by diametrically opposed laws.
- The world Socialist system is advancing steadfastly toward decisive victory in the economic competition with capitalism.
- Soviet experience has shown that the working class can fulfill its historical mission as the builder of a new society only in a sound alliance with the nonproletarian working masses, primarly the peasantry.
- Soviet experience has shown that the Socialist state is the main instrument for the Socialist transformation of society. The state organizes and unites the masses, exercises planned leadership of economic and cultural construction, and safeguards the revolutionary gains of the people.
- Soviet experience has fully borne out the Marxist-Leninist theory that the Communist party plays a decisive role in the formation and development of Socialist society. Only a party that steadfastly pursues a class, proletarian policy, and is equipped with progressive, revolutionary theory, only a party solidly united and closely linked with the masses, can organize the people and lead them to the victory of Socialism.
- The experience of the world Socialist system has confirmed the need for the closest unity of countries that fall away from capitalism, for the united effort in the building of Socialism and Communism.
- In the many countries, the liberation movement of the peoples that have awakened proceeds under the flag of nationalism . . . . the nationalism of an oppressed nation contains a general democratic element directed against oppression, and Communists support it because they consider it historically justified at any given stage.
- The chief ideological and political weapon of imperialism is anti-Communism, which consists mainly in slandering the Socialist system and distorting the policy and objectives, of the Communist parties and Marx-Leninist theory.
While many of our political leaders have begun to awaken, in too many cases it is only to bicker among themselves in the halls of the state, local, and federal legislatures concerning which of them would get the most pork for themselves, their friends, and colleagues. American citizens can do little more than just watch as their rights and employment are being stripped away through the enactment of new laws with the stroke of a pen in the hands of a new sitting American President.
Any proposed changes in the law by a prospective Obama administration which seeks to affect changes made with the intent to foment the overthrow of the government would be contrary to the constitution. It must no longer remain the case that, even after citizens have obtained credible evidence and documentation of any such attempts by the government, they must remain without any avenues of legal redress to correct the matter. But, who can we trust in America to legitimately right these ongoing wrongs and help place America back on course? Must Americans, by default, fall into the arms of Communism by din of Democratic Party trickery?
Nevertheless, what remains irrefutable is that Americans have placed the keys in Obama's hands to change America, to change even the constitution, and to change our form of government from Capitalism, and worst of all to stand by and watch as Obama tries to usher in Communism.
Shall we now face an American inauguration or an American incarceration?
