President Obama Evidently Hates America

Note:  You might want to start at the Barack Obama Index Page, especially if you arrived here by using a search engine.

This page is a byproduct of another nearby page about President Obama's Intentions for America.  It is sad to see someone in the White House who has such obvious contempt for American traditions, and especially for free-market capitalism and individual liberty.

Evidently Obama hates America

He is the stock market's worst nightmare, he is way too friendly with the Muslims and the homosexuals and the abortionists, and apparently his America-hating pastor — whose "church" he attended for 20 years — filled him with shame and disrespect for the United States.  Now it appears that President Obama has the complete "transformation" of America as his goal, but to me that means he has the utmost contempt for capitalism, Christianity and America's traditional values, because he wants to change everything.  His actions and words have already verified this.

It is time to admit that the American left is malevolent.  The Biden administration has brought this country to a historically and frightening new low, domestically and internationally.  Our President and our nation are now laughingstocks, perceived as weak and vulnerable.  Biden has made it clear to the rest of the world, beginning with his shuttering of our energy independence and his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, that America is free for the taking.  China, Iran and Russia, even North Korea, have all sized up this president up and found him to be not only ridiculous but easily rolled.  Each of those enemies of America, enemies of freedom, are planning their takeover of America, thanks to Biden and his pathetic cabinet's fecklessness.  The US is now a vulnerable target of each of our enemies.  The US has never been more at risk than it is now, thanks to this President.  Obama began the seeds of our destruction and is most likely the Svengali who is running the Biden administration.  Obama loathes this country and planted the seeds of what he hoped to be our eventual demise.

Barack Obama Comes Out Against the First Amendment.  One would think that a former president of the United States would be a staunch defender of the First Amendment.  When it comes to Barack Obama, however, you'd think wrong.  Obama spoke Wednesday at an event sponsored by The Atlantic and the University of Chicago's Institute of Politics, "Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy."  In the course of a long and rambling discussion with The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg, Obama called for government control over the Internet in order to stem the "demand for crazy" that was spreading what he called "disinformation."  As Leftists always do, Obama claimed that this "disinformation" was threatening "our democracy," that is, the Left's political and cultural hegemony.

Biden is the Most anti-American President in US History.  Barack Obama made it abundantly clear that he not only loathed these United States, but he was also embarrassed by his own nation and its citizens.  He did tremendous damage over his eight years in office.  He treated our enemies like allies and our allies like enemies.  He set race relations back at least fifty years having been indoctrinated in the odious Jeremiah Wright brand of anti-Americanism.  But who among us could have predicted how much damage a Biden administration could and would do in just a few months?

Waving Goodbye to the America We All Knew and Loved.  It is difficult to pinpoint the origin or the exact nature of America's disintegration.  It developed a head of steam when a man who hates this country, Barack Obama, was elected president.  For eight years, we watched his concentrated assault on our values.  Obama and his fellow Democrats have introduced some new concepts into our vernacular: democratic socialism, identity politics, social justice, diversity, inclusion, political correctness, Critical Race Theory, cancel culture.  They were intended for the express purpose of destroying everything that is laudable about America.

Obama's Back to Lecture Us on "Institutional Norms" and "Who We Are".  I don't know about you, but I sadly missed Barry coming on at any hour of the day to do his little patented head shake, followed by a half-smirk, before launching into a lecture about "who we are".  Now that he's got a third memoir out, he's back to lecture us on his favorite topic, his moral superiority and our moral inferiority.  On 60 Minutes, not currently being run by a sexual predator, you can both see and hear the guy who spied on his successor and lied all the time, tell us about institutional norms and truth.

Barack Obama bashes America (again).  As if he needs more money, former President Barack Obama is out hawking a new book — a 768-page memoir that is just Volume One of his latest memoirs (he wrote his first autobiography at age 34).  But Mr. Obama's latest book is raising eyebrows because he is (once again) bashing America.  "I'm not yet ready to abandon the possibility of America," Mr. Obama says in "A Promised Land," which hit shelves on Tuesday.  He adds that he wrote the book "for young people — as an invitation to bring about, through hard work, determination, and a big dose of imagination, an America that finally aligns with all that is best in us."  Mr. Obama also said he was waiting "to see if we can actually live up to the meaning of our creed.  The jury's still out."

Forget 'Michelle for President'.  The truth is that Barack Obama was and is a radical leftist ideologue who in his own words sought to fundamentally transform America.  A few observers saw this agenda from the beginning of Obama's appearance on the national scene, but they were voices in a wilderness dominated by a sycophantic media.  The American people never supported a fundamental transformation of their country — in leftist terms, a shredding of America's Judeo-Christian heritage in favor of a godless, George Soros-vision of an Open Society, directed and controlled by almighty secular government — and the more they understood the truth of who Obama was and what he was trying to do, the angrier and more resentful they became.  Donald Trump was the anti-Obama for one simple reason:  he loves America.

Does the Left Hate America?  Leftists want to "fundamentally transform" the United States.  Five days before the 2008 presidential election, candidate Barack Obama told a huge audience in Columbia, Missouri, "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America."  More recently, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) announced that she plans to "fundamentally transform our government," that America needs "big, structural change" and that her proposed Accountable Capitalism Act would bring about "fundamental change."  Likewise, Senator Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) said earlier this year, "We're going to try to transform the United States of America," and last month he said, "This campaign is about fundamental change."  Examples are legion.  So, here's a question:  How can one claim to love what one wishes to fundamentally transform?  The answer is obvious:  It isn't possible.

Obama [is the] Chief Instigator of Hating America.  It was former President Barack Obama who turned loving America into a crime — an impeachable one.  Obama successor President Donald Trump sincerely loves America — and that is his most unforgivable crime.  The Soviet-style Live Impeachment Inquiry, getting saturation coverage by all television networks — including Fox News — is a farce, proven by the fact that even with wall-to-wall coverage, only 13 million people tuned in on its Opening Day.

Vindman, Zaid, Schiff:  Foul birds of an ugly feather.  Retired lieutenant colonel Alexander Vindman was reportedly reprimanded by a superior when it became known that he repeatedly made fun of Americans; American culture; and, as he said, "Americans not being educated or worldly."  He did this in front of foreign diplomats, constantly.  No wonder he remained an Obama loyalist and has tried to undercut President Trump.  After all, Obama considered himself first and foremost "a citizen of the world" and did not find anything exceptional in America in and of itself.

Trump vs.  Warren:  Trump Builds, Warren Destroys.  President Trump's vision of our country is America First.  Unlike all presidents of the past 30 years, Donald Trump is not afraid of saying he puts his own people first.  Everything he does is in the interest of ordinary Americans.  The policy of America First rejects the globalist and universalist policies of the past that saw America as just one nation among others — and a guilty and undeserving nation at that.  The low point in this anti-American era was President Obama's apology tour of 2009, during which he traveled to Europe and the Middle East apologizing for everything America had done in the past and promising that we would do better in the future.  They loved it in Berlin and Cairo, places where they do not love America and where they do not share our fundamental values of individual liberty.  Obama spoke the words that other nations wanted to hear, and he spoke them because he shared their disdain.  He believed that America needed to be "transformed" from what it had been in the past.

Trump meltdowns hide Obama's poisoned chalice.  When Barack Obama swore the oath of office just over a decade ago, he entered the White House with a deep conviction that many of the world's problems were chiefly the consequence of American hubris.  What followed was an agenda that prioritised the lowering of tensions with traditional American antagonists over the concerns of traditional American allies.

President Trump Shatters Left-Wing Myths.  President Trump is boldly providing much-needed relief to the American people.  He is untying us from the bonds of political correctness that have, in un-American fashion, forced Americans to accept liberal myths and farces. [...] Barack Obama used his Presidency to criticize and malign America, label America a racist society, weaken us around the world, diminish the importance of Christian religious freedom, and extol thugs like Al Sharpton and traitors like Bo Bergdahl.

Democrats Hate America and Americans.  Eight years of Obama decimated the Democratic Party.  Politically, Americans are mostly center-right and during his presidency, they voted out Democrats in droves.  Yet, those of the "New Woke" choose to believe this was not because Americans didn't support his "I hate America and Americans" domestic and foreign policies.  He simply did not move far enough to the left and that his failure was the result of him merely not hating us enough.  The New Woke creed preaches that America was created by genocide, slavery, and greed.  Unique in the world, we are a nation with no redeeming qualities. [...] Therefore, you will never hear a Democrat, especially one running for president, ever say anything positive about this country or its citizenry.  The New Woke believe there is nothing positive that can be said and that all Americans who don't believe exactly as they do are evil.

Trump is not a racist; he's pushing the Overton window to normal.  Pretty much ever since Obama hit the White House, Leftists have insulted America and then doubled-down on insulting America, and than increased their insults to America.  Even as people from around the world have illegally stormed America's borders, the Left has told us — and instructed these new immigrants to believe — that America is a stinking pile of poop country, filled with evil plutocrats and redneck racists.  To the Left and the new immigrants they indoctrinate, America is a country to be loathed, not to be admired.  Moreover, immigrants are told to believe that whether we graciously invited them in or they voluntarily broke in to our country like common criminals.  You know that and I know that this is what the Leftists have done.  Moreover, the millions of Americans who aren't as political as we are know that this is what Leftists have done.

A Jihad Basis for the Coup.  We are the last defenders of civilization.  Period.  The evidence now shows that Obama, Hillary, and John Kerry sold out.  We still don't know how many secrets Hillary sold to foreign powers for money, but thirty thousand emails are still missing.  Even conservatives tend to forget how deeply the Democrats hate this country.  We don't really want to know that, being normal, decent people.  The Democrats colluded with Stalin in the 20th century, and they never got over being exposed by Joe McCarthy.  They were the party of slavery and secession, and later, they supported the Klan.  Their record is morally abysmal.  As for Obama, he never showed any understanding of American moral values.  He is either very blind or on the wrong side.  Take your pick.

Barack Obama:  The United States Was 'Founded on Inequality'.  Barack Obama asserted that the United States was founded on inequality, despite the Constitution enshrining equality into the law. [...] Obama commented on his understanding of the founding of the United States during the VTEXDAY 2019 conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Wednesday [5/29/2019].

Barack Obama Was Evil.  The Left doesn't want to admit it, however, the more time goes by, the more we need to realize that Barack Obama was an evil president.  I say this because it is clear Obama attempted to destroy the one thing that separates America from most of the world, and provides for her overwhelming success — the rule of law.  Obama used the Federal government as a gangster army to attack people he didn't like, or that stood in his way for the Left's thirst for overwhelming power.  He used the agencies of the Federal government to spy on its citizens, oppress and intimidate the political opposition, and even manipulate our elections.  This will have devastating consequences for generations of Americans to come, for her foundation has been shaken.  In addition, he purposefully weakened our national security, promoted an Islamist political ideology domestically and around the world, and attempted to radicaly change our demographics by importing millions upon millions of third world citizens that have no intention of believing in the prinicples America was founded upon.

John Bolton Honors the Bay of Pigs Freedom-Fighters, Who Obama Apologized For.  "It is an honor to address you all (The Bay of Pigs Veterans Association) today.  I am delighted to be here in Miami among such brave and distinguished company.  Our nation and this region are forever in debt to you."  (John Bolton, April 17, 2019, the 58th Anniversary Of the Bay of Pigs freedom-fight.)  "I'm grateful that President Ortega did not blame me for things (the Bay of Pigs freedom-fight) that happened when I was three months old... We are not dug into policies that were formulated before I was born."  (An abject President Obama groveling to Communist/drug-trafficking/ terror-sponsors Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chavez and Raul Castro at the Summit of the Americas in 2009 during his famous "apology tour.")  But one craven, sniveling apology to the terror-sponsoring mass-murderers whose lifelong craving was to nuke his country wasn't enough for President Obama.

Why Do Most People in This Country Work, while Others Never Will?  President Obama's true legacy is that he directed a transformation of America that diminished economic opportunity for large segments our country.  Under Obama, many American workers in this country suffered a permanent lowering of their standard of living, leading to a perceived future for them of limited prospects.  The Obama Progressive policy-driven economic agenda was primarily responsible for this decline.  Over his presidential term, Obama was the pessimistic messenger and leader of the decline of American prosperity and economic opportunity and freedom.  Like many on the Left, he focused on what he believed were America's shortcomings and implemented policies dependent on the growth of government.  He attempted to change the nature of our country by moving us closer to a socialist model and thereby accelerated our economic decline.  The motivation behind many of these policies is lack of faith by people on the Left such as Obama in the promise of America and a lack of understanding of what is responsible for America's greatness.

We Are Dancing on a Powder Keg.  [Scroll down]  Even if the media soft-pedaled it, most of us understood perfectly that Mr. Obama loathed America to the point of hating our flag.  And most of us saw, in his presidency, the perfect example of what happens when you elect a president who hates the country he leads.  We knew that to elect Hillary was to put in power the rest of the program of our destruction and we didn't want that.

It's Time to Get Real About Our Enemies.  [Scroll down]  Federal support for radicalism exploded under Obama.  He illegally transferred money from the U.S. Treasury — some $500 million, not small seed money — and distributed it among leftist nonprofits like La Raza, to create havoc in the name of social justice.  His own organization, Organize for Action, for which he raised money as president, has a database of 2 million volunteers.  We are talking about billions of dollars in total and tens of thousands of professional activists — or more.  That pays for a lot of agitation, lawsuits, demonstrations, and "resistance."  That's why the country is in turmoil.

Secretary Pompeo Eviscerates Obama in Cairo, Egypt:  "The age of self-inflicted American shame is over".  In the historic annals of linguistic evisceration, the speech delivered today [1/10/2019] by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Cairo, Egypt, will long be remembered.  Standing in the venue of the American University in Cairo, the exact location used by former President Barack Obama in 2009, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo absolutely shredded the prior administration's mid-east policy with a comprehensive and complete rebuke of the former President.  Understanding how Egypt was ground-zero for the destructive policies of the Obama administration and the rise of radical Islamic extremism via the Muslim Brotherhood; let there be no doubt Secretary Pompeo had a clear intention to outline the horrendous intentional Obama ideology, and it was well received by the Egyptian audience.

'Age of self-inflicted American shame is over': Pompeo delivers blistering anti-Obama speech in Cairo.  Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reassured U.S. allies in the Middle East that the current administration is focused on righting the dire mistakes made under former President Obama's leadership.  In remarks made in Cairo, Egypt on Thursday [1/10/2019], Pompeo issued a scathing rebuke of Obama's policies in the region while seeking to reassure allies that President Donald Trump is committed to them despite announced plans to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.

John Drew:  Willing To Die To Get Out Truth About Young Obama.  I think it always comes as a shock to people with little interest in politics and government (which, I suppose, is most of us) to realize that there are those among us who really do not care for the United States of America, wish it ill, and are eager to see it replaced by some larger, international world order run by efficient, hopefully benevolent bureaucrats.  Even worse, many of the people who see the United States as an evil, exploitative, and dangerous country are happily serving at the highest levels of the federal government including my old friend and acquaintance, President Barack Obama.

Obama: America Has a 'Great Smugness' About Wealth, Status.  While speaking Tuesday at Rice University's Baker Center with author Jon Meacham and former White House chief of staff, James Baker, former President Barack Obama discussed identity politics and its history regarding race in the United States.  Obama said that America, particularly American elites, have had a history of "great smugness" when it comes to wealth and status[.]

Here's what the left doesn't get about America.  I was once a proud member of the Democratic party. [...] Around 2011, however, I finally reached the point where I could no longer swallow the radicalized rhetoric coming from the left.  The reasons were complex, but there was one thing above all else that planted me firmly in the Republican camp: the left's need to constantly trash or see America in a negative light.  Whether it was Barack Obama declaring we needed to "fundamentally transform" America, or a liberal activist who once said to me, "This country isn't exceptional — it's pathetic" — it was clear to me that, for some reason, many on the left see America as wicked, unholy, and in need of some sort of purification.

Did Trump Betray America in Helsinki?  We all know that Barack Obama did not stand up for America.  He did not manifest patriotic pride in his country.  In what must count as a national disgrace, he began his presidency by apologizing for America, abasing himself on the world stage by declaring that big, bad America had been torturing innocent terrorists.  Obama was practicing the Jeremiah Wright, black liberation theology version of foreign policy.  He thought that America was the problem in the world, not the solution.

Trump [is] Blamed for Death of Reporters.  Did Media Blame Obama for Cop Killers?  Did the media hold President Barack Obama responsible for the murders of 10 cops in Dallas, Baton Rouge and New York City, all at the hands of black men apparently incited by their belief that cops murder blacks without consequence?  After all, Obama frequently criticized the police and bemoaned America's racism as "part of our DNA."  President Obama's anti-cop rhetoric started right after he took office. [...] Obama and his attorney general also offered verbal support to the so-called Black Lives Matter movement that argues, without facts, that blacks are regularly and illegally profiled by an institutionally, systemically and structurally "racist" criminal justice system.  It did not help that during the first six years of the Obama administration, the anti-police incendiary Rev. Al Sharpton, according to The Washington Post, visited the White House 72 times.  What kind of message did that send to the police?

America really did have a Manchurian Candidate in the White House.  In the short year and a half that President Trump has been in office, he has put in place policy that has mitigated the damage that President Obama inflicted on our national security and on our allies.  The speed with which Trump has been able to turn things around points to the diabolical depths the Obama administration went to in order to undermine our national strength and way of life.  All Trump had to do was stop doing things that hurt America; America could then take care of itself.  The results are plain as day.  However, it will take decades for the Obama damage to be completely undone.

Obama single-handedly ruined the FBI and the DOJ.  While the devious machinations of the Deep State are not new, it was the Obama administration, most likely Obama himself, who brought us to this low point, the wholesale corruption of the FBI and the DOJ leadership.  Obama surrounded himself with like-minded globalist elites who thought no laws applied to them:  Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Valerie Jarrett, the Podestas, Ben Rhodes, Jonathan Gruber, and more.  Eric Holder was the most unprincipled attorney general, more even than John Mitchell, who served time in federal prison.  We learned from the I.G. report that Obama lied when he said he learned of HRC's private server from the media.  He knew because he, too, corresponded with her from a private email, just as Comey used a non-FBI email account.  None of these people, not one, respected our Constitution or the laws meant to govern their agencies.  This is what Obama did to America.  He virtually destroyed the FBI, the CIA, and the DOJ by turning them into weapons with which to destroy his opponents.

Obama — Just Too Good for Us.  As president, Obama always found us wanting.  We were constantly disappointing him.  He would tell us the right thing to do and then sigh and purse his lips when his instructions were not followed. [...] He's saying that, sadly, we were not enlightened enough for the momentous changes wrought by the smartest people in the world — or even evolved enough for the first African-American president.  "Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early," Obama mused to aides.

In the NFL, patriotism is for sale.  Before there was Colin Kaepernick, there was Hank Williams Jr.  In the waning days of the Reagan era, Williams vandalized one of his hits, "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight," to produce a football broadcast theme song, "All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night."  That ghastly little ditty was the opener of "Monday Night Football" until a 2011 "Fox & Friends" appearance during which Williams compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler and labeled him an "enemy."  When Gretchen Carlson challenged him, Williams insisted:  "I'm telling you like it is."  He would later expand the indictment:  "We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US — and we hate him!"  ESPN distanced itself from Williams and replaced his theme song with one from the anodyne Carrie Underwood.

Obama's Strategy:  Planned Failure.  Obama's attack on the energy sector was two-pronged.  Part of it was planned failure.  The other was basic corruption. [...] Obama actively worked to destabilize the Middle East throughout his presidency.  You can see it in the hasty withdrawal from Iraq (that every single general opposed), the abandonment of allies in Egypt, the bombing campaign in Libya, the Iran nuclear deal and the indecision and inaction in Syria.  Every one of these decisions was clearly aimed at destabilization.  As many presidents before him, Obama's choices were motivated by oil.  What separates him is that he wanted oil prices to skyrocket, and they did.

Obama's Genie.  For almost an entire century, and certainly since the tumultuous '60s when Bill and Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin and other far-leftists reared their seditious heads, the left has been looking for the one defining figure to get them over the goal line, that being literally overthrowing the United States of America — the land they loathe.

How Progressives Use Race as a Weapon Against Our Country.  [T]he presidency of Barack Obama did not lead to a celebration of America's achievement in creating a successful multi-ethnic and multi-racial society.  It led to greater racial and ethnic tensions.  That is because Obama was a lifelong political leftist who openly rejected this view of American exceptionalism, equating it with "British exceptionalism" and "Greek exceptionalism," in other words not exceptional [at] all.  Obama's presidency did not lead to a celebration of America's achievement in creating a successful multi-ethnic and multi-racial society because Obama is the leader of a political movement that is at war with America and its achievement.  On the eve of his election Obama predicted that, "we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America," as though America was so deeply flawed as to require a "fundamental" transformation.

Confronting Leftist Lies.  Obama dissed our Constitution with these words: "a charter of negative liberties.  It says what the states can't do to you.  Says what the federal government can't do to you but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf."  Obama's rant against our Constitution is typical leftist arrogance.  They believe their superior intellect should grant them the authority to dictate how we peons should live.  Leftists are also obsessed with poking their finger in the eye of the God of Christianity; transforming America into an anything goes sexually society (bestiality, pedophilia, incest, and etc.).  Leftists hate the God of Christianity because He requires moral standards of behavior.

Barack Obama still hates you and he's not afraid to say it.  Both Trump and Obama despise certain elements of the news media.  But where President Trump reserves his attacks for the news outlets specifically, Barack Obama isn't content just attacking Fox News or, say, Rush Limbaugh.  He has to attack the Americans who make up their audience.  Don't underestimate why this is a significant distinction.  Donald Trump doesn't go easy on CNN.  But one thing he never does is attack CNN's viewers.

The First Anti-American President.  Barack Obama will no doubt be chronicled, among other things, as the first anti-American president.  No wonder; he's the product of an educational system that has become increasingly radical and anti-American with each passing decade, and his mother was a stereotypical leftist anthropologist with a passion for the Third World.  The pattern is unmistakable.  As Luis Fleischman notes, Obama wanted to make deals with our enemies, Iran being the most dramatic example.

11 Outrageous Ways Government Wasted $473 Billion in 2017.  All we hear from Democrats about the tax cuts or border wall is that it will "blow a hole in the deficit" or something.  Well maybe, if the government would stop wasting billions of dollars on outrageous programs like these eleven, that money could be used for whatever shortfalls come from the tax cuts and border wall.  All of these programs are leftovers from the Obama regime.

Obama's biggest EVER scandal uncovered (yup... drugs AND terrorism!)  An explosive new report alleges that former President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry betrayed America, sold out our allies, and helped enrich terrorists and drug dealers.  Even worse, the silence from the mainstream media on the biggest scandal to ever hit the Obama administration is deafening — and it has conservatives outraged.  Obama sold out America, and did it to get a toothless and ugly deal with Iran that experts believe hasn't stopped the Ayatollah from pursuing nuclear weapons.

What Michelle Obama Called A Prison, Melania Trump Calls An Honor.  Melania Trump, in an interview with CNN during her and President Trump's recent trip to Asia, said it's an "honor" to serve as the first lady.

Make 'em feel the heat.  [Scroll down]  People gloss over the fact that Obama succeeded in changing the nation.  He exposed the sheer number of people who clearly don't understand what America stands for and want it to fail.  But I feel like maybe a lot of people think there are more of them than there are of us, meaning, more people who want some pseudo-communist outcome rather than a free nation.  I, of course, can't be sure, but I look around my town, in my little county, and think there are certainly more people who understand America than there are those who wish its demise.

Making no apologies, President Trump replaces Obama Doctrine with American Exceptionalism.  Warmongering, torture and slavery had become the ugly birthmarks of America.  In Mr. Obama's eyes, anyway.  That was before Mr. Obama went on to become the first president in history to wage war with every heartbeat of his presidency.  Or the rise and spread of ISIS, which plumbed new depths of depravity in torturing innocents.  Or the explosion of slavery, rape and human trafficking from South and Central America spawned by Mr. Obama's heartless open-orders policies.  He traveled to Egypt with unrivaled credibility as the son of a Muslim to beckon the Muslim world into modernity?  To teach the radical notions of free speech, self-governance and religious freedom?  Instead, he apologized for America's role in creating the internet, with its twisted view of "sexuality" and "mindless violence."

No Mention of July 4th on Barack Obama's Social Media Accounts.  Seems very odd, to say the least, that a former president of the United States is silent on July 4, while the head of a foreign government wishes Americans a "Happy Birthday."

Ex-POTUS Obama is Still on an American apology tour.  Over the weekend, former President Obama took a break from sampling Indonesian cuisine on his luxury vacation to throw thinly veiled pot-shots at President Trump and his supporters, apologizing for America's decision to pull out of the Paris climate accords.  Ostensibly, Obama was to give a speech in Jakarta about religious tolerance and international cooperation, calling on Indonesia and the rest of the world to confront "discrimination against people based on race or ethnicity or religion."  "If we don't stand up for tolerance and moderation and respect for others, if we begin to doubt ourselves and all that we have accomplished, then much of the progress that we have made will not continue," Obama said.

"Fundamental Transformation" Demands Chaos.  Nothing more clearly marked the intended mission of Barack Obama's presidency than his own words, spoken shortly before the 2008 election:  "We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America." [...] Obama's presidency was a successful one, as measured by his stated purposes.  Thinking otherwise misses the head fakes during his two terms, the scandals and related abuses of power that violated the sovereignty of the American people, and the residual damage that he leaves behind.

Obama, Organizing for Action, and the Death Throes of the Democratic Party.  Obama is no fool and he understands — having encouraged Black Lives Matter and the war on police and law enforcement, having facilitated ballooning welfare rolls and doubling student debt to $1.35 trillion, having presided over a flood of immigrants illegally crossing the southern border, and having pushed unprecedented deficit spending that added nearly a trillion dollars annually to the federal debt and doubling that debt in eight years to $20 trillion — that the U.S. is nearer collapse than at any previous time.  And every Marxist knows that socialist transformation first requires collapse of the old order.  Obama has not only been trained in Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals, but he's familiar with the "crisis strategy theory" of Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, two neo-Marxists who taught at Columbia University, where Obama later studied.

The Obama Presidency — By the Numbers.  The gross domestic product, the value of all goods and services, grew by an average of 1.5 percent from 2009 to 2015.  In the first two quarters of 2016, growth nearly stalled at .8 percent and 1.4 percent, respectively, before posting a healthy 3.5 percent rate in the third quarter.  Even though the current recovery is one of the longest on record, growth never kicked into high gear.  Obama's best year was 2.6 percent last year.  He will finish his presidency Friday as the first president since before World War II to never preside over a single year of growth exceeding 3 percent.

Obama Has No Time Left for Medal of Honor to Decorated Vietnam War Medic.  Outgoing President Barack Obama appears not to have the time to bestow the military's highest award for valor, the Medal of Honor, to former U.S. Army Spc.  Jim McCloughan, 70, for his personal acts above and beyond the call of duty as a medic during the Vietnam War.  The warrior has been waiting for five decades to be recognized for saving 10 people in May 1969, despite having some grenade shrapnel and a bullet wound in his arm, during a gruesome battle of the Vietnam War that left scores of service members killed, wounded, or missing in action.

Obama Tarnishes His Legacy By Letting A Terrorist Walk Free.  We all know about President Obama's commutation of the 35-year sentence of traitor Chelsea Manning, nee Bradley, who handed U.S. secrets over to WikiLeaks, leading to the deaths of an untold number of people.  That was bad enough.  But even worse, but sadly less publicized, was Obama's decision to pardon Oscar Lopez Rivera, the terrorist whose FALN planted more than 130 bombs across America during the 1970s and 1980s, supposedly on behalf of Puerto Rican independence.  Lopez Rivera was sentenced to 55 years in prison for seditious conspiracy and a number of weapons charges.  He's served 35 years of that original sentence.

What Has Obama Done to Us, and How Was He Able to Do It?  Obama is the most left-wing president in American history.  Never mind his speech at the 2004 Democrat National Nomination Convention, or during the run-up to the 2008 election, when he was presenting himself as a moderate.  Someone scrutinizing Obama's history, including his early years in and out of the U.S., his time in school, his stint as a Chicago community organizer, his law school experiences, and his political career as an Illinois state senator and a U.S. senator, should have recognized him for what he is:  a radical leftist, steeped in Marxism, contemptuous of America's Constitution, hostile to traditional values, and committed to Alinskyite notions of social justice.

President Obama Says U.S. Constitution 'Just a Piece of Parchment'.  President Obama, as he concluded his farewell address in Chicago on Tuesday, called the U.S. Constitution "just a piece of parchment."  "Our Constitution is a remarkable, beautiful gift," said Obama.  "But it's really just a piece of parchment."  "It has no power on its own," he went on.  "We the people give it power.  We the people give it meaning with our participation and with the choices that we make and the alliances that we forge..."

The final scolding.  After eight years, he's finally going to tell us exactly how much we've disappointed him.  It's like the Obama version of Festivus.  He's got a lot of problems with us people; the time for the airing of grievances has come.

Obama Still Doesn't Get America.  For Obama, the US Constitution is just an obstacle to be circumvented or simply ignored.  A few weeks ago he told us that the Electoral College is "outdated" apparently because the American States are now largely under the thumb of the Feds. [...] Obama still wants to be King, and he wants it by hook or by crook.  He therefore continues to pose an ongoing danger to the American Republic, and will for the remainder of his life.

The Obama Tragedy.  Unlike the Era of Good Feelings that James Madison bequeathed to the country when he left the White House, Obama has already ushered in the Era of Ill Feelings, fanning every low, intolerant, and ignorant impulse in the American heart.  Whether history will judge that his reversal of racial progress and the divisiveness he has inflamed make him the worst of our presidents we can't yet know.  But it is worth looking back to ask what made him so overbearing, so contemptuous of the spirit of our Constitution, and so dismissive of the idea of American exceptionalism that he pretended to embrace in 2004.

At Pearl Harbor, Obama Twists History to Sell Agenda.  Taking the stage in front of World War II veterans who fought to preserve American liberty against Imperial Japanese aggression, President Barack Obama twisted history to promote his political agenda. [...] How insulting to those veterans assembled.  Obama insinuates that the reason they fought and sacrificed was because "those who are different" were "demonized."  World War II was not a failure to tolerate diversity.  It was a struggle against unmitigated evil fought by virtuous men who deserve honor and respect.  Obama offered neither by minimizing what World War II was and why it had to be fought.

Obama And His Admission Of Treason.  A browner country is exactly what Gay Mulatto wanted.  It's why he refuses to close the border, why he won't enforce immigration laws, why he wanted to fast-track unconditional amnesty and give illegals the vote, and why he has spent years and political capital bum rushing Somalis into heartland America.  Make no mistake, this was Gay Mulatto's treasonous plan all along:  the dispossession and demographic displacement of White heritage America.  Open borders to the brown world was his biggest middle finger yet to the White lineage that he so despises in his own family tree.

Washington Post Suddenly Concerned About A Divisive Tone From The President.  [W]here was the concern over the last almost 8 years over Obama's divisiveness?  Obama consistently picked fights with Congressional Republicans, using language that not only smeared and insulted them, but did the same to Citizens who vote Republican.  He's insulted directly or had his surrogates insult numerous citizens and groups.  He's insulted the Supreme Court.  He's called American's lazy more than once, and done it while overseas.  He's called us soft (though, let's be honest, people who vote Democrat very much seem to be soft).  He called one police department stupid.  He's called others racist.  Insults to those who opposed Obamacare.  The NRA and those who support it.  Gun owners in general.  He's attacked private citizens and groups both domestic and abroad.  He's insulted other countries.

White House: 'embittered' World War II veterans should get over Pearl Harbor.  White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during a press conference Monday [12/5/2016] it was natural for World War II veterans to be "embittered" about Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to Pearl Harbor, but they should get over it for the sake of America.

Bookends to a Disastrous Presidency.  To watch Barack Obama's pathetic final non-victory lap around the world this past week, one can't help but recall his stomach-churning "Apologize for America Tour" at the start of his administration.  You'll recall that in April 2009, he went to Europe, which we sacrificed tens of thousands of American lives to liberate 70-plus years ago, and informed Europeans that America "has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" of Europe.  Last week, Mr. Obama could not resist the urge to dis his country once again, telling the "global community," again from a foreign shore, that in the age of the internet, nationalism (read: Donald Trump) is rearing its ugly head.

Ceding Control of Internet Puts the Global Debate Under Threat of Censors.  In another blow to American global leadership the Obama administration is abdicating control of the Internet. [...] Under the new arrangement, America loses power.  That seems to be the theme of Mr. Obama's overall legacy building — globalization and a reduction in U.S. influence.  Opponents of the Mr. Obama giveaway are going to court to reverse it.  Last Friday, four states — Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma, and Nevada — failed to get a federal court judge to delay the transfer.  Expect more litigation.  Challenges to the giveaway will question the constitutionality of President Obama handing over our government property without getting Congress's consent.  The Internet was created by the United States a half century ago as a Defense Department project.  Within 20 years its influence had spread worldwide.

Obama praises ex-Olympians Tommie Smith, John Carlos for '68 'black power' salute.  At a White House ceremony Thursday, President Obama praised former U.S. Olympians Tommie Smith and John Carlos for giving the "black power" salute in the 1968 games.  While honoring the 2016 Team USA Olympians and Paralympians in the East Room, Mr. Obama pointed out that Mr. Smith and Mr. Carlos were in the audience, calling them "legendary."  "We're proud of them," Mr. Obama said.

Athletes Expelled from 1968 Olympics for Raised Fist Protest Invited to WH.  1968 was a time of racial unrest (much like today, thank you Obama Regime) and their "Black Power" salute violated Olympic rules.  And shocked the country.  But, after inviting the BLM thugs to the White House, of course Obama would love to meet these two men.

The Wheedle and the Damage Done.  No American president has ever done more damage to American national security or America's standing in the world than Barack Obama.  We've never had a president quite like him before.  I think the damage is attributable to his rabid belief in the myths of the left-wing critique of the United States.

NAACP President Compares Colin Kaepernick to Rosa Parks.  The president of the NAACP compared 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick to civil rights hero Rosa Parks because of his refusal to stand for the national anthem before football games.  "It's a lofty name, but it's not a stretch," Cornell William Brooks told USA Today on Thursday.  "We'll let history be the judge, how consequential Kaepernick's action is."  Brooks said Kaepernick's protest against social injustice in the U.S. would successfully spur change only if others joined the professional football player in the "movement."

The Editor says...
Obama's comparison makes perfect sense, except Rosa Parks wasn't an athlete, a millionaire, or a Muslim.

Obama Says Americans can be "Lazy" and "Insular".  President Obama has really shown his true colors the last few months.  Not that they were ever particularly hidden to anyone willing to look.  I mean, the guy golfs every weekend and takes a total of about five to six weeks off a year.  And he's calling Americans lazy?  And they accuse Trump of having poor reality testing.  Yesterday, Obama was supportive of 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick sitting out the National Anthem, saying, "He's exercising his constitutional right to make a statement."

Kaepernick encouraged by Obama weighing in on anthem protest.  Obama said Monday [9/5/2016] that he had no doubt that the San Francisco 49ers quarterback is sincere and "cares about some real, legitimate issues."

In Laos, Obama Repeatedly Calls Americans 'Lazy'.  During a townhall meeting in Laos, President Barack Obama called Americans "lazy" multiple times.  For one, Obama said Americans' reluctance to embrace his favored environmental policies is a sign of laziness.  "Usually when you see the environment destroyed, it's not because it's necessary for development," Obama said.  "It's usually because we're being lazy and we're not being as creative as we could be about how to do it in a smarter, more sustainable way."

Obama: Americans Too 'Lazy' to Know Anything About the Rest of the World.  Wednesday at a a Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) town hall in Luang Prabang, Laos, President Barack Obama said Americans can be "lazy" because we are so big we think "We don't have to know anything about other people."

In Laos, Obama Apologizes for U.S. Bombings.  President Barack Obama continued his international apology tour for American deeds overseas [9/6/2016], traveling to the Asian country of Laos to deliver a speech.  Obama acknowledged that the United States dropped more than two million tons of bombs in the country, intervening in the country's civil war.

Obama Will Talk to "Death to America" Iran, But Not "Son of a Whore" Philippines.  An actual American leader should hold the honor of his nation at least as highly as his own honor.  It goes without saying that Obama does not.  That he cares nothing for America's honor, but a great deal for his own.  That he will pursue diplomatic relations with countries that abuse America, but walk away in a huff when an ally that insults him personally.  And there also lies the discrepancy.  Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is under fire by the left because he's fighting drug dealers while Obama frees them from prison.

Disrespecting America.  Just this morning, President Obama defended Colin Kaepernick's right to disrespect the country.  He suggested that we need to have yet another conversation about race... as if we had been talking about anything else for the past eight or so years.  In a brilliant column Claudia Rosett shows that America has been profoundly disrespected and even damaged by the Obama presidency.  She describes in detail what happened in China at the G-20 meetings.  The world, and especially China, said good-bye to Barack Obama by treating him like a defeated enemy.

The Dragon Comes With a Suitcase.  The Western left has the habit of preaching from a moral height while simultaneously describing its history as one unending crime.  You've heard the teaching moments.  "I live in a house built by slaves."  "You didn't build that!"  This whole country is stolen!  Say it often enough and someone will believe you.  Somebody did.  The trouble is you can't rise from the toilet to suddenly preach from a great moral height.  It's possible to do one but not both simultaneously.

Obama Defends Kaepernick's National Anthem Protest.  President Obama on Monday [9/5/2016] defended San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick's decision not to stand during the playing of the national anthem.  "[H]e's following his constitutional right to make a statement," Obama said at a press conference in Hangzhou, China, responding to a question about the quarterback.  "I think there's a long history of sports figures doing so."  The president added, "I don't doubt his sincerity.  I think he cares about some real, legitimate issues that have to be talked about.  And if nothing else, he's generated some conversation around some topics that need to be talked about it."

Levin: No One Has Done More Damage to This Nation Than Barack Obama.  On his show Wednesday, nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin slammed Obama and his administration for the Iranian nuclear deal saying, no one has done more damage to this nation than Barack Obama.  "No one, no human being has done more damage to the security of this nation, to the wellbeing of this nation, to future generations of this nation than Barack Obama," remarked Levin.  "Nobody."

Obama, the Worst President Ever, Except Maybe for Hillary.  President Obama set out to fundamentally transform America (read: systematically destroy America as founded).  Measured in terms of accomplishing this goal, Obama has been one of the most successful presidents in history.  Measured in terms of doing what is best for America, Obama undeniably ranks among the worst.  Obama's progressive defenders whitewash his record, but it is objectively horrible — unless you either are in a fantasy world or truly consider America's comeuppance and its economic, military and cultural decline glorious developments. [...] In every subcategory of domestic and foreign policy, Obama has damaged America. He has turned everything upside down.

The Anti-Cop President.  Any hopes that the nation's first black president could uplift the nation's black underclass went up in smoke Sunday [7/17/2016] when Barack Obama doubled down on his blaming of America's police for the recent cop massacres that amount, as Heather Mac Donald rightly says, to a war on cops.

Obama Is The Last Person To Turn To For Healing And Peace.  Any leader who claims he is going to "fundamentally transform" the entity he is leading will not do the job that most people under his rule want done by their leader.  So when Obama promised he would "fundamentally transform America" during his administration, those citizens who paid attention to his words expected nothing but disaster from an Obama administration.  And that's exactly what we got.

Fundamentally Transformed.  Unfortunately, President Obama, ever since he first appeared on the national political scene in 2008, has systematically adopted a rhetoric and an agenda that is predicated on dividing up the country according to tribal grievances, in hopes of recalibrating various factions into a majority grievance culture.  In large part, he has succeeded politically.  But in doing so he has nearly torn the country apart.  Indeed, it is no exaggeration to suggest that no other recent president has offered such a level of polarizing and divisive racial bombast.  Most recently, without citing any facts about the circumstances of the police shootings in Minnesota and Louisiana, Barack Obama castigated the police and the citizenry on their culpability for racial disparity and prejudicial violence.

Obama and the most successful national subversion in world history.  America is coming apart — not just the United States, the sovereign nation, but our Constitution, our culture, our traditions, all of what "America" has come to mean.  It is not by accident.  What we are witnessing is the product of eight years of Barack Obama and his divisive rhetoric and destructive policies.  Obama's "transformation" is a euphemism for the crippling and humbling of a great nation he considers racist, oppressive, venal and dysfunctional. [...] There is, in fact, a deliberate, coordinated and ongoing effort to subvert the United States as a capitalist, Judeo-Christian based republic and replace it with alien political ideologies and cultures incompatible to personal liberty.

6 Alinsky Rules That Explain Obama's Words and Deeds.  [Scroll down]  Just because Barack Obama has left behind the low-income Chicago communities in which he once agitated doesn't mean that he left behind the skills as a community agitator that he learned from Saul Alinsky.  Rather, he now regards the country as his community to organize as he sees fit.  Obama not infrequently invokes American ideals, even while he conspires to "fundamentally transform" America.  In spite of what he says, Obama does not want national unity.  There can be no unity with a people who one wants to fundamentally transform.

The America-Hating Obama 'Homeland Security' Appointee.  Good ol' Barack Obama.  So deeply do he and his administration love America, that they felt secure enough in their own patriotism to appoint an America-hating radical to the Homeland Security Advisory Council's Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism (SCVE).  After all, they undoubtedly reasoned, what possible harm could such an individual do in that kind of a setting?  Perhaps you've heard of her — a young woman named Laila Alawa, born to Syrian parents who immigrated to the United States when the girl was ten.  Soon after she became a U.S. citizen in April 2015, Ms. Alawa wrote:  "I will always be Syrian.  I will always be from Syria.  I will always be of Syria."  Ain't that nice?  Ms. Alawa has long regarded the United States as a nation that oppresses and abuses Muslims, as she explained in a July 2014 piece which she wrote for The Guardian.

Obama Admin Replaces U.S. Flag On White House Logo With White Surrender Flag.  Here is the White House logo after Obama got his hands on it.

'Dreams From My Father,' but Son Uninterested in His Actual Words.  America's first anti-American president, so contemptuous of the land he presumes to lead, shows his disdain in just about every word and deed.  But, having achieved some measure of manufactured renown via his (ghostwritten?) fictionalized "memoir," Dreams From My Father, how can it be that he has shown zero interest in this story?

What Obama Thinks of Islamism, Communism — and America.  There has been quite a debate recently about President Obama's understanding of Islamism, and his refusal to use terms such as "Islamist terrorism."  But he has given us his view of another significant term:  Communism. [...] The notion that the Communist nomenklatura in Russia or Communist China or anywhere else was composed of people whose main goal was to eliminate poverty is bizarre and hopelessly wrong.  Stalin and Mao were not motivated by reducing poverty; they were concerned with seizing and keeping power.  Mao put it pretty well:  "Communism is not love.  Communism is a hammer which we use to crush the enemy."

Obama Resembles A Petulant, Name-Calling Child More Than A Responsible President.  If Obama were able to concentrate his attention as much on halting terrorist Islamic murderers as he does with his attempts to unconstitutionally take self-defense weapons from Americans, the nation and the world would be much better off and safer.  But when a president enters office swearing to want to "fundamentally transform America", and when he has expressed a love for Islam's morning call to prayer, while also demonstrating his disregard for the American constitution and the hated "guns and religion" tendencies of the American population's bitter clingers, what can you expect?

The Mind of the President, Still a Mystery After All These Years.  Obama is clearly a leftist radical who thinks that most of the problems of the world would be much less troublesome if the United States were not so involved with the world.  We are the problem, in his mind. [...] We are told that he is the most brilliant of all of our presidents, which I seriously doubt.  But how can this man, who has taken an oath to protect and defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States possibly view the bloody, senseless massacre in an Orlando night club and announce primly that "We are to blame, not Islamic terrorism, for the massacre."  He has no understanding of the office he holds, none at all.

Ho Chi Minh, Obama's Freedom Fighter.  All I wanted to do last week was enjoy my vacation.  Instead, I was assaulted by another breathtaking statement from the president of the United States, provided courtesy of an official White House press release.  The occasion was a July 25 meeting between President Obama and the leader of communist Vietnam.  Obama stated:  "President Sang shared with me a copy of a letter sent by Ho Chi Minh to Harry Truman.  And we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson."  This, of course, is utter nonsense.  Ho Chi Minh was a committed Marxist-Leninist revolutionary who cut his teeth at Moscow's Lenin School.  He became one of the Soviet Comintern's most successful agents.  Among the testimonies to his efforts are the countless boat people from Vietnam who now live in America (many of whom voted for Obama).  But not only is Obama's statement nonsense; it's also the product of communist propaganda.

Bolton Blasts Obama's Apology Tour:  We Weren't Just Killing People in Hiroshima, 'We Were Defending Our Country'.  [Former U.N. Ambassador John] Bolton said there was doubt the worldwide business and diplomatic communities received Obama's message that the United States did not have the moral high ground over Japan when it bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  "He goes out of his way in the speech to say that mankind has engaged in wars for the entire existence of the species, so that everybody is equally guilty, all of the time, and we should just recognize that, and rise to his level, have that moral revolution.  And, as he says, have an entirely different way of thinking about war," Bolton said.  "Well, that is the kind of ethereal, abstract, academic discussion that may warm people's hearts, but it doesn't protect the American people.  It doesn't protect our interests around the world."  "Our media said Obama did not apologize in Hiroshima.  It just shows how limited our media is, because they sat there, listening for him to say the words 'I apologize.'  He didn't say the words 'I apologize' in the entire Apology Tour for seven years," Bolton pointed out.  "I'm pretty sure he's never actually said that.  He's much more sophisticated.  I think the media know that.  I think they're just giving him a pass, as they so often do.  But what he does is confess American error.  We made this mistake, he said about Hiroshima.  Death rained from the sky.  As if we were just up there, saying anything we can do to kill people."

Obama's Ho Chi Minh Trail.  On his visit to meet with Communist leaders in Vietnam, Obama criticized the United States for having, "too much money in our politics, and rising economic inequality, racial bias in our criminal justice system."  He praised Ho Chi Minh's evocation of the "American Declaration of Independence" and claimed that we had "shared ideals" with the murderous Communist dictator.  Shortly after the "evocation" that Obama praised, his beloved Ho was hard at work purging the opposition, political and religious.  When Obama references these "shared ideals", does he perhaps mean Ho's declaration, "All who do not follow the line laid down by me will be broken."

Congress Must Censure President Obama over Hiroshima Speech.  President Barack Obama told the world on Friday [5/27/2016] in Hiroshima that the American decision to drop nuclear bombs on Japan in 1945 arose from humanity's worst instincts, including "nationalist fervor or religious zeal."  The war that ended in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he said, "grew out of the same base instinct for domination or conquest that had caused conflicts among the simplest tribes, an old pattern amplified by new capabilities and without new constraints."  The speech — delivered on the eve of Memorial Day weekend — was billed by the White House as anything but an apology, but Obama's words betrayed his true sentiments.

President Obama Is Visiting Hiroshima.  Why Not Pearl Harbor?  President Obama is visiting Hiroshima this week, the site of the August 6, 1945, dropping of the atomic bomb that helped end World War II in the Pacific Theater.  But strangely, he has so far announced no plans to visit Pearl Harbor on the anniversary of the attack.  The president, who spent much of his childhood in Hawaii, should do so — given that many Americans have forgotten why the Japanese attacked the United States and why they falsely assumed that they could defeat the world's largest economic power.  Imperial Japan was not, as often claimed, forced into a corner by a U.S. oil embargo, which came only after years of horrific Japanese atrocities in China and Southeast Asia.  Instead, an opportunistic and aggressive fascist Japan gambled that the geostrategy of late 1941 had made America uniquely vulnerable to a surprise attack.

Levin Roars:  Obama is a 'Truly Sick' Man.  On Tuesday's [5/24/2016] radio program, Conservative Review Editor-in-Chief Mark Levin excoriated President Obama for continuing his apology tour in communist Vietnam.  "We have Barack Obama overseas right now, and you know what he's doing again?" Levin asked.  "He's in Communist Vietnam, apologizing for America." [...] President Obama hates America, Levin said.  He asked, is it too much for Republicans to stand up and call him out on it?

Obama Tells Vietnam:  U.S. 'Still Striving to Live Up to Our Founding Ideals'.  In an address to the people of communist-ruled Vietnam on Tuesday, President Obama made a case for the importance of upholding human rights, prefacing it by saying that the United States, too, "is still striving to live up to our founding ideals." [...] "We still deal with our shortcomings — too much money in politics, and rising economic inequality," Obama continued.  "Racial bias in our criminal justice system.  Women still not being paid as much as men doing the same job.  We still have problems and we're not immune from criticism — I promise you, I hear it every day."

Obama's 'apology' complex.  Seven years after kicking off his presidency with a famous speech in Cairo reaching out to the Arab world, but that skipped Israel, Barack Obama is about to bookend it with one of his last big trips on Air Force One, landing first here in Vietnam before going on to Hiroshima, Japan.  Obama's critics call stops like this an apology tour.  He and his White House aides call it "reckoning with history."  Some prefer "coming to grips with history."

The Truth About Trump.  Trump voters' anger has nothing to do with vague white-male resentments.  It is anger against Obama and the free pass he gets even from many Republicans who are scared to rip into this smug, arrogant incompetent lest they be called racist.  It's not just that Obama has smothered the economic recovery and left it gasping in a ditch, [...] It's Obama's arrogance, not his mere ineptitude, that drives people crazy.  It's his venomous contempt for his opposition and the very idea of opposition — and the growing sense that he dislikes America.  Americans treat their president with great respect and expect to be treated respectfully in turn.  That is the first law of democracy.  A president who breaks it is dangerous.

"When you want to take a country down, first you neutralize its military capability."
How Obama transformed the military.  There is no question that America's worldwide leadership, power and influence have been significantly degraded over the last seven and a half years.  The basic reason, regretfully, is that President Obama has been very successful in the implementation of his goal to fundamentally transform America.  In so doing, he has undercut the Judeo-Christian foundation of this great country while at the same time promoting the advancement of Islam throughout our society — including the U.S. military.  Clearly, any thinking American understands that this transformation, at its core, is anti-American and anti-Western.  Yet it is also pro-Islam, pro-Iranianand pro-Muslim Brotherhood.  Compounding this travesty is Mr. Obama's decision to embrace our sworn enemies.

Obama's Hiroshima Visit Is Hypocrisy.  The visit is "historic" in the minimal sense that no American president has visited Hiroshima before.  The real issue is not whether an American president is visiting Hiroshima, but which one.  If it were one of the Bushes, or even Bill Clinton, that would be one thing.  But President Obama has an unfortunate record of seeking opportunities to apologize for things America did before he became president, and looks forward to moments when he can publicly cast the foreign policy of his predecessors in a bad light — even 70 years later.  Given his record, therefore, the president's very appearance at Hiroshima bears the hallmark of an apology, regardless of the words he utters.

Of Course Obama Is Going to Hiroshima.  Of course Barack Obama will go to Hiroshima.  If there is any cause for surprise, it is that it has taken him seven years to work up his nerve.  A trip to where America killed some 100,000 Japanese subjects of the Emperor Hirohito — no one knows the exact death toll — in order to call for "a world without nuclear weapons" is so natural a gesture for this president.  The visit is an implicit act of historical contrition, even if the president never utters the words "America is sorry."  It is sure to upset conservatives — always a plus.  As a symbol, it will call for right-thinking people everywhere to envision a world where nation states mean less, where hope defeats fear, and where problems are solved with dialogue, not war.

It used to be called global warming, then climate change, and now it's climate pollution.
Obama Declares America 'the World's Second-Largest Source of Climate Pollution'.  In an email sent yesterday [4/22/2016] as Secretary of State John Kerry was signing a global "climate change" agreement at the United Nations, President Obama, who was in Great Britain, said that the United States was "the world's second-largest source of climate pollution.  Obama's message was sent to the White House email list and posted on the White House website.  "This is important because the impact of climate change is real," Obama said in his email.

The Editor says...
There are no "impact[s] of climate change."  The climate has its day-to-day impact on us, but there are no abrupt or extraordinary changes that would have any discernable impact on anyone.

Obama's constant meddling is killing us, America.  We need leadership, not tinkering.  I am incensed that our government has decided to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.  I have nothing against this gun-toting abolitionist; I have everything against President Obama's continued rattling of the nation's cage.  I object to his ongoing efforts to "transform" and "modernize" our country, authoring one divisive measure after another, at a time when he should be restoring our confidence. [...] Obama's inflammatory and pesky interventions in matters great and small, from shoving ObamaCare down the country's throat to renaming Mt.  McKinley, from overturning our immigration laws to optimizing transgender bathroom availability, have kept Americans on their heels, not knowing what will come next.

About Obama's Receding Tide of War....  [Scroll down]  In [Obama's] view, as he told NBC's Matt Lauer this past January, "there are no existential threats" confronting the U.S. today.  Thus, as Fox News reported earlier this month in a superb documentary on "Rising Threats, Shrinking Military," Obama is both gutting the U.S. military and reshaping it, the priorities here being not to win wars, but to be, above all, eco-aware and gender malleable.

Why Obama is unteachable.  [Scroll down]  Though he often denies it, Mr. Obama is intensely ideological.  He distrusts America's definition of its interests and the rationale for defending them just as one of his principal mentors, Edward Said, did.  Mr. Said was a Palestinian activist who became an American academic.  His was a radical anti-colonialist ideology that infused his writing and teaching.  Mr. Obama studied under Mr. Said at Columbia University and maintained a relationship with him for about two decades.  Mr. Said mocked American greatness, tying it directly to imperialism and what he believed was a false sense of American uniqueness.  He said America was dedicated to hierarchies of race and to wariness of other nations' revolutions.

The next stop on Obama's apology tour:
If Obama Goes to Hiroshima.  Americans are already dreading the prospect that President Obama is going to make a visit to Hiroshima to apologize for our use of the atomic bomb against the Rising Sun.  Supposedly no decision has been made on this head, but the Post newspaper in Washington reports that aides to the President "have begun exploring the possibility of Obama spending several hours in Hiroshima" when he is in Japan in May.  Let us just say, no good can come of it.

John Kerry makes historic visit to Hiroshima memorial.  The US Secretary of State said his visit to the Japanese city of Hiroshima was a "gut-wrenching" reminder of the need to get rid of nuclear weapons.  John Kerry made the comments at a press conference after laying a wreath at the city's atomic bomb memorial.  He is the first US secretary of state ever to visit the memorial or the city.

"It's not like the Japanese have ever truly apologized for the butchery, mass rape, destruction, and aggression that made Hiroshima a reality."
The Obama Administration Is Now Apologizing For America Winning World War II.  When John Kerry toured the Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Museum this week before meeting foreign ministers at the G-7 Summit, Reuters reports that he had witnessed "haunting displays [of] photographs of badly burned victims, the tattered and stained clothes they wore and statues depicting them with flesh melting from their limbs.  "It is a stunning display.  It is a gut-wrenching display," explained Kerry.  "It is a reminder of the depth of the obligation every one of us in public life carries ... to create and pursue a world free from nuclear weapons.  Iran exempted, of course.

Cuban state media goes after our first black president.  President Teddy Roosevelt once told a campaign audience that weakness invites contempt.  Let's just say that those words apply to our new friend Raúl Castro, who keeps going out of his way to show the world that it was President Obama, not he, who really wanted to do the wave at the baseball game.  First, Raúl Castro skipped President Obama's arrival. [...] Second, Raúl Castro watched the president of the U.S. praise his education and health care system.  Incredibly, President Obama read the regime's talking points from A to Z.  What was the point of President Obama doing this?

Barack Obama: The Last Communist Sympathizer.  How far we've come since Ronald Reagan stood in front of the Brandenburg Gate in West Berlin and famously demanded:  "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall."  Today, President Barack Obama is singing serenades to communism. [...] Have we arrived at a new ideological low that our president feels compelled to defend the evils of communism, a system that left people living under it — from the Soviet Union to China and East Germany to Cuba — in abject poverty, declining health and without the most basic of human rights?  What about the 200 million or more people who were killed after Big Brother decided what worked for them?  Did rulers like Mao and Stalin just get a little carried away?

Obama's Unacceptable Love Affair With Communism.  Many of us warned about Obama's Marxist sympathies before he was first elected president, and we've repeatedly pointed it out during his presidency.  Obama was raised and mentored by communists and spent many years engaged in community organizing (radical leftist activism).  He established himself as the most liberal member of the Senate.  Yet our warnings were met with cries of extremism, irrationality and, of course, racism. I wonder what these scolds would say now.  After playing his fiddle in Cuba and paying homage to the romanticized Marxist Castro regime while Belgium was burning, Obama spoke to a group of young people in Argentina.  He told them, essentially, that there isn't much difference between capitalism and socialism and that they "should be practical."  He said:  "You don't have to worry about whether it neatly fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory.  You should just decide what works."  He praised President Raul Castro in Cuba for his country's universal health care and quality education.  Please don't tell me you find that hard to believe, either.

Obama Downplays Difference Between Capitalism, Communism.  Obama said, "So often in the past there's been a sharp division between left and right, between capitalist and communist or socialist."  "And especially in the Americas, that's been a big debate, right?  Oh, you know, you're a capitalist Yankee dog, and oh, you know, you're some crazy communist, you know, that's going to take away everybody's property.  And I mean, those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works."

Obama: Separation of Powers 'Very Frustrating Sometimes for the President,' Like 'Herding Cats'.  President Obama said Wednesday [3/23/2016] it was "very frustrating sometimes for the president" and akin to "herding cats" to have separation of powers in the U.S. government.  Responding to a town hall question in Argentina about the 2016 election, Obama discussed the directions being taken by the Republican and Democratic Parties before expounding on the American political system.  "I also think that one of the great advantages of the United States system, even though it's very frustrating sometimes for the president, is that power is distributed across a lot of different institutions," Obama said.  "It's what we call separation of powers and decentralization."

The "Apology Tour" Comes Full Circle.  At the beginning of his presidency, Barack Obama traveled to Cairo, Europe and the United Nations to "apologize" for past American actions and attitudes, which he claimed helped create divisions between countries. [...] Mitt Romney and other critics quickly dubbed these and similar remarks his "apology tour."  With the president's visit to Havana, Cuba, that tour has come full circle.  In response to a question about Cuba's human rights policies during a joint news conference, Cuban President Raul Castro criticized the United States for what he asserted was America's violation of human rights.

Rep. Diaz-Balart: Obama's Cuba Trip a 'Quasi-Religious Pilgrimage' to a 'Totalitarian Dictatorship'.  Cuban-American Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) criticized President Barack Obama's ongoing trip to Cuba, saying it "looks less of a foreign policy trip and more of a quasi-religious pilgrimage to the only totalitarian dictatorship, anti-American dictatorship in this hemisphere."  Speaking on Fox News on Sunday [3/20/2016], Diaz-Balart also said, "it is, frankly, a tragic and a disgusting, and a horrific day for the United States, and frankly for the entire world."

Grinning Imbecile Meets His Communist Heroes.  This revolting spectacle in Cuba is yet another reminder we've got an enemy in the White House.

Obama Atones for America's Sins in Cuba.  [Scroll down] It is an island once rich in the faith, only to be annihilated by Fidel and Raul Castro and their war on religion.  "Heaven... right here in front of me," was how Thomas Merton, the atheist-communist who became a devout Catholic monk, once described pre-Castro's Cuba. [...] That was the wondrous, pious Cuba the Castro brothers destroyed.  And it is the Castro boys that Barack Obama, product of a pro-communist/pro-Castro mother and father and a literal Communist Party USA mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, is eager to embrace — and to forgive.  Really, I'm sure that in his heart of hearts, Barack agrees with the Castros that America is the side that needs to be forgiven.  America is the aggressor, the sinner that stands in need of reparation.

Obama: We Have To Understand Why Our Enemies Hate Us.  Obama understands really well why our enemies hate us.  He understands it so well that it's almost as if he thinks like them.

Obama Welcomes Castro's Criticism of America: 'I Personally Would Not Disagree'.  "President Castro, I think, has pointed out that in his view making sure that everybody is getting a decent education or health care, has basic security and old age, that those things are human rights as well.  I personally would not disagree with him," Obama said.  [Video clip]

Obama Says He Welcomes Castro's Criticism of the United States.  In a joint press conference with Cuban dictator Raul Castro in Havana, Cuba, on Monday [3/21/2016], President Barack Obama said he welcomes Castro's criticism of the U.S.  "I actually welcome President Castro commenting on some of the areas where he feels that we're falling short, because I think we should not be immune or afraid of criticism or discussion as well," Obama said.

Guess who's coming to dinner as Obama's latest anti-American?  President Barack Obama spent more than the past seven years flagrantly dissing America.  Now that's he's passing his mantle on to Hillary Clinton, Obama is using willing surrogates and satellites from outside of America to do his dissing for him:  Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is coming to President Barack Obama's State Dinner as an open and fully-fledged anti-American.

Media vs. Democracy: The Case of Poland.  For half a century or more, our morale has been under deliberate attack by partisans of the Left.  This attack is very clever and very dangerous.  Break the morale of the country and our nation's dynamism, our prosperity and our future will be broken, as well.  The Left lies.  They sneer at patriotism.  They distort our history.  We are villains.  Political Correctness tries to control our thought.  Fracturing the American Melting Pot into contending racial, ethnic and economic factions shatters our unity and purpose.  Much more dangerous than these tactics is denial that America is exceptional.  We hear this often, nowadays.  We hear it in the schools and the movies.  We hear it from "progressive" politicians.  We hear it in the News.  We even hear it from the White House.  People who propagate this fiction are not friends of America, they are America's adversaries.

Why Won't Anyone But Rubio and Cruz Say Obama Is Destroying the Country on Purpose?  [Scroll down]  This is really, really important.  There are only two people that I'm aware of that are making a consistent point of this.  Rubio, actually, is atop of this.  Rubio and Cruz are the only two in the entire Republican field.  Carly Fiorina may have said something like this occasionally.  With Rubio, it's a theme.  With Cruz, it's close to a theme.  And the real question is:  Why do the other Republicans in the field disagree?  Why do they not say it themselves, that Obama is doing what he's doing on purpose and by design?  That is a brilliantly conceived and flawlessly executed plan to transform America into something it was not founded to be.  This is something crucially important to Republican voters.  To people inside the Beltway, it's kind of a chuckle.

Why People Can't Face the Truth about Obama.  The antecedents of Barack Obama's hatred of America are now well understood.  Obama was groomed from the womb to abhor this white majority, predominantly Christian free enterprise Republic.  From his expatriate, capitalism-hating mother, from his alcoholic Communist father and his perv Communist mentor, detesting America was in his mother's milk and the blood in his veins.  But it was the murderous Bill Ayers who recognized in Obama a destructive potential greater than a million bombs cooked up in basements. [...] America is Barack Obama's prey.  He is tearing America apart and feeding the pieces of her life to his foreign and domestic fellow travelers.  He is not transforming the nation but terminating it.

Barack Obama and the End of Western Civilization.  No nation or culture in history has done more to advance the well-being of mankind than the United States and Western civilization.  However, to the mindset of Barack Obama, under no circumstances can he defend or profess admiration for his country; instead he must not only transform United States, but destroy any vestiges of its accomplishments in order to permanently retain control over the populace and exact revenge for the alleged transgressions of the West.  Barack Obama has spent his entire life, from birth to the present, wallowing in this mindset.  He is thus incapable of change or being receptive to any other viewpoint, as that would be an admission of failure.

Obama's Crazy Policies — It's All Heredity.  [Barack H. Obama's grandfather hated the British.]  This hatred was passed to his son Barack Obama Sr. and then to his son, our president.  This anti-colonial hatred is still with our president today.  Recall one of his first acts as president was to remove the bust of Winston Churchill from the White House and return it to England.  Many wondered why he would do such a thing.  As I wrote recently, this is one of the reasons he is more than happy to allow the flood of illegal aliens and Syrian refugees in — to colonize the United States.  That's the reason for the open borders immigration part — half of it anyway.  Grandfather Onyango Obama wasn't always Hussein Onyango Obama.  Somewhere along the way he converted from Christian to Islam and took the name Hussein, which he passed to his son, who passed it to his son, our dear president.  Why is this significant?  What's in a name?  Everything, if you know the history.

America's Most Dangerous Demagogue Lives in the White House.  There's a demagogue loose in the land.  He uses immigration and the war on terror to drive a wedge into the American populace.  He traffics in absurd conspiracy theories about foreign influence, he mocks his political opponents, and he inspires friends and allies to lash out, lawlessly, against them.  He compares patriotic Americans to jihadists, and he endangers our national security with his reckless rhetoric.  I'm speaking, of course, about the President of the United States.

Obama Is Not Delusional: He is ideologically and resolutely anti-American.  Barack Hussein Obama is fond of telling Americans, "that's not who we are," when admonishing us about not agreeing with his policies.  It is Obama and his fellow travelers, who are, in fact, "not who we are."  It is why many mistakenly describe his views as being delusional, basing their conclusion on what mainstream America believes, not on Obama's Islamo-Marxist proclivities.  Like earlier Nazi and communist propagandists, Obama and his fellow travelers traffic in myths, half-truths and, when necessary, blatant lies.  In an Islamic context, it can easily take on the form of taqiyya and tawriya; Islamic doctrines that instruct Muslims to deceive when it is perceived to be in Islam's interest. [...] Stated simply, Obama and his fellow travelers dissemble and lie because their true objective, their so-called fundamental transformation, is the permanent decline of the United States as a world power and the dismantling of the country as a capitalist republic based on Judeo-Christian democratic principles.

Ted Cruz: Obama an 'unmitigated socialist' who won't stand up and defend U.S..  Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas on Thursday [12/3/2015] blasted President Obama as an "unmitigated socialist" while offering the president a bit of measured praise, saying Republicans need to put forth a 2016 nominee as committed to the conservative cause as Mr. Obama is to the liberal one.  "Listen, Barack Obama is not a bad president because he was a senator — Barack Obama is a bad president [because] he's an unmitigated socialist who won't stand up and defend the United States of America," Mr. Cruz said.

Obama Should Be Bragging, Not Apologizing, About U.S. Record On Greenhouse Gases.  Rather than telling the world how sorry he is that we emit CO2, why isn't President Obama bragging about the incredible strides we've made in creating more wealth with less energy?

Obama frets over global warming while adding to it.  Remember whenever an American president stepped out on the world stage and we could each feel quietly proud of our elected chief executive?  We knew he felt the same warm pride in the United States that we did.  We knew, as he did, that it's not a perfect place.  But it is the best one yet conceived.  And always striving to improve.  And we could count on a president to play a strong leadership role globally not just in words, but deeds as well.  If he promised — or threatened — something, it would happen.  Instead we get Barack "That's Not Who We Are" Obama, on his second international trip in as many weeks, again apologizing and portraying the United States as a culprit.

46 Times President Obama Told Americans 'That's Not Who We Are'.  President Obama is fond of telling Americans "that's not who we are" when admonishing them about not agreeing with his liberal principles, a new SuperCut shows.  Not unlike his warning to political opponents that they may be on the "wrong side of history," the expression is useful in its ability to shut down conversation and seize a moral high ground, however imaginary.

How Obama Exploited Ferguson By Pushing A False Narrative.  On Monday, November 24th [2014], a grand jury in Ferguson decided not to indict officer Darren WIlson for the fatal shooting that resulted in the death of Michael Brown.  While the St. Louis County prosecutor announced the reasoning as to why there was no indictment, Obama took to the air-waives to discredit and vilify our legal system.  Specifically, Obama made it a point to note that the "grand jury made a decision that upset a lot of people".  As Hans von Spakovsky of the Daily Signal writes, "Obama added more fuel to the fire of the false claim that racial bias was at the root of what happened".

A Totalitarian Marriage of Convenience.  Barack Hussein Obama is succeeding in his fundamental transformation; that is, dismantling the United States as a capitalist republic, based on Judeo-Christian democratic principles.  Obama is dangerous as a President because his ideologies, Marxism and sympathy for Islam, drive him to pursue policies that run counter to the national interest, the well-being of the American people and, quite frankly, the survival of the country.  His mendacity is compounded by his arrogance and narcissism that prevent him from accepting responsibility and learning from his mistakes.  He is not on our side.

Obama shares America's many troubles with another foreign crowd.  President Obama returned from a nine-day, round-the-world tour early this morning.  But not before once again detailing for another foreign audience some of the numerous things wrong with his country.  "The United States has to have some humility," said the aloof one, "because there have been times where we did the wrong thing.  There have been times where we have problems in our own country.  And so we will want to go tell other people what to do, but then back home we're not always doing what we say we should do."  Yes, he was unclear.  But Obama had no teleprompter to feed him replies during that Malaysian town-hall with young people.

Questioning The Loyalty Of Barack Obama.  In the wake of president Barack Obama's comments at the National Prayer Breakfast that smeared Christianity by equating the "Crusades and the Inquisition... slavery and Jim Crow" to the violence committed in the name of Islam by jihadists, Obama created the narrative.  His tactic was deliberate, knowing the response would provoke Christians and immediately put them on the defensive having to explain why a christian civilized morality is better than a radical Islamic savage morality.  According to White House spokesman Eric Shultz, Obama was trying to talk about moments "over the course of human history, there are times where extremists pervert their own religion to justify violence."  By taking this route of explaining radical Islam, the president directs the course of debate throughout our country without mentioning the crux of the issue that is the underlying problem.  Whether its controversial remarks of race, gender, or religion, he creates the divide with his relentless attacks on the principles of what once made our country great.

Obama warns Asian leaders to avoid 'pitfalls' of America.  President Obama discussed America's faults Friday [11/20/2015] with young Asian leaders, saying the U.S. suffers from "pitfalls" such as income inequality, a political system controlled by the wealthy and political parties divided along racial lines.  Human-rights groups say Malaysia has a poor record on issues such as human trafficking and have accused the State Department of upgrading Malaysia's status on human rights so the country could be included in Mr. Obama's Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact.

Obama trashes America in speech in Malaysia.  I am disgusted that President Obama disparaged the United States in a speech he delivered overseas, in Malaysia, of all places.  In doing so, he not only revealed his conspicuous lack of patriotism, but displayed an amazing lack of awareness about the country hosting him. [...] Obviously, Obama is unaware that the largest political party in Malaysia is race-based.

The Editor says...
If you were to take a trip to Malaysia (paid for with your own money), wouldn't you do enough research in advance to know all about the important aspects of Malaysia's political system?  Mr. Obama (whose trip to Malaysia was paid for with your money) knows exactly as much as he wants to know.

Obama's Pathological Blindness.  It's hard to believe we twice elected a president who refuses to defend the United States.  I think people who used to dismiss our criticism of President Obama as extreme are now realizing just how naive they were. [...] He obviously has no strategy, because he refuses to recognize we're at war.  The truth is that Obama is willfully blinded by his warped ideology, to which he has far more allegiance than the United States.

Obama: I'm not interested in "American leadership or America winning".  Can we please get a Real President, like now?  Because this Obama fellow is rooting for the terrorists.

Obama Unleashes His Pro-Criminal Agenda.  The most radical left-wing American president in history is defining deviancy down by attempting to de-stigmatize criminality.  The Left views criminals — especially minorities — as victims of society, oppressed for mere nonconformism.  Because it needs their votes, the Left is pressing for the restoration of felons' voting rights.  Of course, a criminal record carries with it a degree of social stigma, as it should.  Removing or watering down that socially beneficial stigma reduces disincentives to commit crimes and hinders the marginalization of the antisocial.  Without stigma and social ostracism, society would eventually collapse.  This is fine by our malignantly narcissistic Marxist president who, seeing the law in capitalist America largely as an instrument of oppression, seeks to blunt and retrofit it.

What makes Obama tick?  [Scroll down]  I have previously described the policies of the Obama Administration as the intersection of radical ideology and incompetence.  Obama is "incompetent" as a President in the sense that his narcissism prevents him from accepting responsibility and learning from his mistakes.  His ideologies, namely Marxism and sympathy for Islam, compound that "incompetence" by driving him to pursue policies that run counter to the national interest and the well-being of the American people.  Sorry, but I just don't think he's on our side.

Obama on Columbus Day: New World Discovery Brought Disease, Devastation and Violence to Indigenous People.  In a proclamation marking Columbus Day issued by the White House on Friday [10/9/2015], President Barack Obama said that while the federal holiday recognizes the accomplishments of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus and his discovery of the New World, it is marred by mistreatment of indigenous people.  "Though these early travels expanded the realm of European exploration, to many they also marked a time that forever changed the world for the indigenous peoples of North America," Obama wrote.

Answering the Media's Question: Is Obama a Muslim?  Obama is dedicated to the subversion of Western, in particular White European, Judeo-Christian-based democracy.  In the world today, the two strongest forces opposing Western, Judeo-Christian democracy are radical Islam and Marxism in its current manifestations.  The proponents of radical Islam and Marxism have a shared hatred of the United States as the embodiment of evil and the main impediment to the subjugation of the individual by either Sharia or the state.

The Establishment Birthed Trump.  It's hard to overstate Americans' concern for the state of the nation.  Horrified by President Obama's Sherman-esque march through America, they are tired of hearing that nothing can be done.  They are through with empty promises from establishment politicians.  People are tired of Obama's pitting blacks against whites, women against men, gays against heterosexuals, rich against poor, non-taxpayers against taxpayers, citizens against cops and non-Christians against Christians.  They can no longer stomach Obama's apologizing for America and excusing terrorists while rushing to attack Christians at every turn.

What Has America Accomplished After Two-Terms Of A Barack Obama Presidency?  If one was to take a step back and objectively examine where the world finds itself today after only two-terms of an Obama presidency, logical thinking would say that all of this must in some way have been planned!  That the possibility at least exists that Barack Obama is the Manchurian President who has systematically and methodically tried to bring the US to its knees and now, with tens of thousands of non-vetted Syrian refugees about to arrive here, may be getting closer to his endgame!

The American Refugee Resettlement Scam.  Call on your legislators stop the Syrian invasion and demand hearings!  Obama is the personification of the American radical Left — a force of pure, malevolent evil intent on destroying our country.  He is the Cloward Piven president.  Refugee resettlement as currently structured is Cloward Piven on steroids.  It is literally an agenda to erase America.

Nine Signs of the Impending American Collapse.  [Scroll down]  Anyone who doubts that Barack Hussein Obama, to quote James Lewis once again, is a "false messiah" and "a cancer on the body politic," a Marxist-trained and Alinsky-inspired radical, an Islamic sympathizer, a nuclearizing agent for Iran (thus fulfilling Carter's legacy), a congenital liar and frivolous narcissist, a contemptible dispenser of apologies for a country that has been — or had been — a force for good in a maleficent world, and the worst and most dangerous president in American history by an order of magnitude — anyone who doubts this has not been listening or looking or is himself dedicated to America's destruction.

Renaming Mount McKinley Obama's Insult To Competence.  [Scroll down]  McKinley also opened the gates to America's rise as a global power by deciding to build the Panama Canal and by winning Cuba's freedom from Spain in the months-long Spanish-American War of 1898.  Favoring fiscal discipline and a gold standard, he brought years of economic prosperity to the U.S.  And he held a dim view of Prohibition, another "progressive" social policy hobbyhorse that failed miserably.  Moreover, in a policy right out of today's news pages, McKinley sent criminal immigrants back home — but without demonizing all immigrants.  And his cleanup following 1900's Storm of the Century in Galveston, Texas, which killed 10,000, was lauded for being both swift and highly competent.  It's yet another example of both the triumph of political correctness and the Obama administration's utter indifference to America's heritage.

Obama Trying To Sneak Gitmo's Worst Terrorists Into U.S..  The Pentagon plans to transfer Gitmo "forever prisoners," who are so dangerous even Mideast states won't take them, to prisons inside the U.S. Obama isn't just closing Gitmo, he's moving it to America.

Obama Ignores V-J Day Remembrance.  Today in London, Queen Elizabeth II attended a memorial service at St. Martin-in-the-Fields church to commemorate the end of the war.  Also attending was Prime Minister David Cameron, who related to reporters the significance of remembering the sacrifice of the British soldiers who fought in World War II.  After the service ended, the Queen met and chatted with WWII veterans and former prisoners-of-war, now in their 90's.  And President Obama?  He appeared on a video to mark [...] the one-year-anniversary of the violence in Ferguson that followed the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Obamism and Neo-fascist America.  The philosophical foundation of the American Left and the Democratic Party is a proprietary hybrid of Fascism.  While in lockstep with the economic and political tenets of Fascism, the unique feature of the current American iteration is anti-nationalism as reflected in the belief that the United States is the locus of malevolence in the world as compared to militant nationalism of Italy and Germany in the 1920's and 30's. [...] Barack Obama, steeped in the stew that is the unique American version of Fascism since childhood, is the poster child for its success in becoming the dominate philosophy of the Democratic Party.

Blame America First: The Real Goal of the Kerry-Obama Iran Deal.  What is President Obama's deal with Iran really, essentially about?  I just realized that John Kerry has been trying to tell us all along, and it's only yesterday that he finally said it clearly enough to make it register.  In last week's Senate testimony, he first established the theme, warning that if Congress doesn't approve the deal, "we will have proven we're not trustworthy."  Get that?  We have a Secretary of State who conducted negotiations from the premise that we, not the Iranians, are the ones who have to prove we can be trusted.

When Obama Wanted to Apologize for Hiroshima.  According to a Wikileaks cable released in October 2011, then U.S. Ambassador to Japan John Roos told then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in September 2009 that the Japanese government was not amenable to the idea of President Obama visiting Hiroshima to issue an apology for the bombing.  When this story came out, a senior White House official told ABC News there was never any plan for Obama to issue an apology.  If that was the case, why would Roos specifically state in his cable to Clinton "the idea of President Obama visiting Hiroshima to apologize for the atomic bombing during World War II is a 'non-starter'"?

Gadsden flag
Obama calls for banning of American Revolution flag.  The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike.  Positioned below the rattlesnake are the words "Don't tread on me."  The flag is named after American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden (1724-1805), who designed it in 1775 during the American Revolution.  The timber rattlesnake and eastern diamondback rattlesnake both populate the geographical areas of the original 13 colonies.  As the American Revolution grew, the snake began to see more use as a symbol of the colonies.

Yes, Beatrice, Obama Hates Our Military.  The White House has now reversed itself and ordered flags flown at half-mast — but not until after they refused to do so while the Capitol (and the States) did.  How much more do you need to see when five of our servicemembers are gunned down in an act of terrorism on our soil, potentiated by a government that refuses to recognize everyone's 2nd Amendment rights, including members of our military, and then goes even further by posting "gun free zone" signs on the door!  Oh, it doesn't stop there either. [...]

Obama: Witting or Witless?  A question has hung in the air since Barack Obama first moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and began his "fundamental transformation" of this country:  Did he intend harm, or was he merely so blinded by ideology that he could not see the damage his policies were creating?  The Iran deal provides an answer.

What Obama Has Taught Us.  Obama, in truth, is not much interested in Europe, ancient or modern.  For him, it is not the cradle of a singular Western civilization that brought consensual government, freedom, and rationalism into the world, but a once imperial and colonialist incubator of race, class, and gender oppression, quite dependent on the underappreciated discoveries and genius of the Islamic world.  Why a bunch of privileged foreigners thought that their sophistication and traditions might win them exemption from an administration bent on exposing privilege and ensuring fairness is perplexing.  In the eyes of the Obama administration, Europe is to the rest of the world what the 1 percent at home is to the 99 percent — a "you didn't build that" elite in need of some Obama redistribution of power.

O the Graceless.  In 2008, Barack Obama was touted for, among other things, his great healing properties:  He was going to heal our divisions, making us not the red states and the blue states but the United States.  Awww.  In reality, he is one of the most divisive leaders we have ever had.  I think of a slogan he used in an ad in the last presidential election:  "Mitt Romney.  Not one of us."  And I think of how he spiked the football after the Supreme Court's gay-marriage decree:  He bathed the White House in rainbow colors.  To much of America, that was a middle finger in the face.  And isn't the White House supposed to belong to all of us, sort of?  Has the building ever been used in this fashion before?

United We Stood, Divided We'll Fall.  [Scroll down]  There would be no rainbow White House if they'd already defeated conservative Americans because they really, honestly don't care.  What they do care about is the slow, steady destruction of freedom.  For every group they claim to support there is an opportunity to further decimate the constitutional freedoms in this country.  They pass laws that require business owners to hire identified candidates regardless of their qualifications or demeanor, require colleges to give preference to certain applicants even if they were lower on every measure of merit, force states to abandon their autonomy and succumb to the ruling elite.  The list goes on of their small victories on the road to totalitarian rule.  But they've found their winning formula, the strategy that will finish this country off, turning Americans against America.

The Trails of All Modern Social Activism Lead Back To The White House.  Prior to his election in 2008 President Obama told everyone his intent was to "fundamentally change" the United States of America. [...] This outline is simply going to point out a couple of visible footprints, amid the dozens possible, and show how all the modern activism stems from, and traces back to, the Obama White House.

The Left's High-Water Mark.  Barack Obama has been extraordinarily successful in his desire to — what was that phrase? — fundamentally transform the country, but the metamorphosis is nonetheless a good deal less than his congregation wanted and expected.  We may have gone from being up to our knees in welfare-statism to being up to our hips in it, and from having a bushel of banana-republic corruption and incompetence to having a bushel and a peck of it, but the United States of America remains, to the Left's dismay, plainly recognizable as herself beneath the muck.

Former Israeli Ambassador: Obama Has a Problem — with America.  The most explosive passage in Michael Oren's new book on the frayed U.S.-Israel relationship is not about President Barack Obama's repeated fights with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Rather, it is about Obama himself. [...] Speaking to Breitbart News last week, Oren recalled his impressions of Dreams [from My Father].  Obama said "nothing good about America" in his memoir, Oren says.  Here was a man "without a word of praise or gratitude to America" — and yet "no one was listening" to what Obama truly believed.

Obama Releases 3,700 'Worst of the Worst' Criminal Illegals Into the US.  Once again we see Obama's administration releasing criminal illegal aliens arrested for vicious crimes released right back into the US with no penalties for the criminals.  Obama is releasing murderers, rapists, drunk drivers, thieves, and other major criminals into the country after they have been arrested.

As If Iran Wasn't Enough: WaPo Worries Obama is Helping China Proliferate Nuclear Weapons.  Combined with then-President Bill Clinton's utterly criminal behavior, reportedly accepting donations in exchange for releasing key missile guidance technologies to the Red Chinese, it would seem that the leaders of the Democrat Party are determined to trigger a nuclear holocaust.  The only question is why?

Obama Complains to UN About America's 'Human Rights' Violations.  The Obama administration has, once again, complained to the United Nations about alleged American human rights violations — and boasted about liberal policies like Obamacare as the solution.  The State Department report, released Monday [5/11/2015] as part of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) at the UN Human Rights Council, reads less like an accounting of human rights issues and more like the platform of the Democratic Party — and invites the world to judge America harshly.

Obama: Wealthiest people aren't 'evil,' they just make too much money.  President Obama doesn't think rich people are bad people — he just says they make too much money.  "I'm not saying this because I dislike hedge fund managers or think they are evil," Obama said Tuesday [5/12/2015] at a panel discussion on poverty, after pointing out that the top 25 hedge fund managers combined make more money than all the Kindergarten teachers in the U.S.  "You pretty much have more than you'll ever use and your family will ever use."

Why a Mad Voter.  Barack Obama has taken the country in a direction far from the intention of its Founders, so far in fact that it borders on the unrecognizable.  We are reaching the point of no return.  Maybe we've even gone past it.  If something isn't done to bring back the America we all knew and loved on November 8, 2016, we might as well all start thinking about moving to another country.  Problem is there isn't another country worth moving to.

The liberation of President Obama.  President Obama obviously feels liberated by the sight of his administration swiftly approaching the outer suburbs of oblivion.  With no fear of red line or deadline, he has set about to use the time he has left in office to make the United States a nation that neither he nor Michelle would be ashamed to be proud of.  The man who arrived in Washington six years ago to "transform" the nation has already done considerable harm, and he still has more than 18 months to strip America of the values, traditions and character that made it "the exceptional nation."  He has pulled the nation away from the embrace of its friends and allies to the astonishment of its enemies.

Christie: 'We don't know' whether Obama cares about the US.  New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie questioned Friday [4/17/2015] whether President Barack Obama cares about the United States, adding that, more than six years into Obama's presidency, "we still don't even know" who he is.

His foreign-policy errors result not from incompetence but from a conscious agenda.
Obama and Revolutionary Romance.  The president has an adolescent, romantic view of professed revolutionary societies and anti-Western poseurs — and of his own ability uniquely to reach out and win them over.  In the most superficial sense, Obama demonstrates his empathy for supposedly revolutionary figures of the non-Western world through gratuitous, often silly remarks about Christianity and Western colonial excesses, past and present.  He apologizes with talk of our "own dark periods" and warns of past U.S. "dictating"; he contextualizes; he ankle-bites the very culture he grew  thrived in, as if he can unapologetically and without guilt enjoy the West's largesse only by deriding its history and values.

The Greatest Threat to Our National Security.  When President-elect Obama declared that he was going to "fundamentally transform" America, not many Americans understood what that meant.  They certainly did not understand that he did not believe in America's exceptionalism and greatness.  They were also unaware of his past Marxist indoctrination, blaming America for many of the world's problems.  Therefore, anything that undercuts and withdraws America's power and influence is seen as being objectively progressive.

Cheney: If You Wanted a President 'To Take America Down ... It Would Look Exactly Like What Barack Obama's Doing'.  [Hugh] Hewitt asked the former vice president, "Is he naïve, Mr. Vice President?  Or does he have a far-reaching vision that only he entertains of a realigned Middle East that somehow it all works out in the end?"  "I don't know, Hugh.  I vacillate between the various theories I've heard, but you know, if you had somebody as president who wanted to take America down, who wanted to fundamentally weaken our position in the world and reduce our capacity to influence events, turn our back on our allies and encourage our adversaries, it would look exactly like what Barack Obama's doing.  I think his actions are constituted in my mind those of the worst president we've ever had."

The Brutality of Obama and the Left.  If [Wesley] Pruden is correct, the president, along with the rest of the left, wants an enemy to develop nuclear weapons in order to diminish the U.S.  Iran is developing ICBMs, too.  The implications are stunning. Any deal Obama strikes with Iran will only be about forestalling nuclear weapons attainment.  The consequences of Obama humbling his own nation: a nuclear armed Iran sparks a Middle Eastern nuclear arms race.  (Sunni Saudi Arabia won't tolerate Shia Iran menacing it.)  Iran, with delivery capability, can strike targets in the U.S. Thirty-six years of hatred toward America, and calling for America's death, by Iran can't be shrugged off.

Obama's Mental Health: A Checklist.  This man who lies pathologically and feels no empathy (again, too many examples to list but his reactions to the murders of Christopher Stevens and James Foley are indicative), has disdain for America and has set out to do the nation harm as surely as a psychopathic murderer sets out to kill an innocent human being.  And he does it all without breaking a sweat or feeling an iota of responsibility or guilt.

Obama the Crazy Pilot.  This is the kind of administration that exchanges a creepy sociopath like Bergdahl for five Islamic homicidal maniacs and expects praise for being humanitarian.  And everyone walks away shaking their heads.  It's hard to know why Obama is doing it all.  I know it sounds like a rude overstatement but in a way he reminds me of that crazy German pilot flying that plane into that alpine cliff, only the plane is us (America and the West).  Does he hate us all that much — or is it just Netanyahu?

The Obama Regime is Precisely What it Accuses America of Being.  With the mega ironies of our tumultuous times in competition for top spot, it must be The Irony of Ironies that Obama and his minions are down to a 'Tee' exactly what they accuse America of being:  despicable bullies of the world.

Obama's 9/11 Conspiracy Theory.  What happened on 9/11, Obama concludes, is that "history returned with a vengeance," or, as his mentor Jeremiah Wright put it, "the chickens have come home to roost."  The attacks, in sum, were the result of "an underlying struggle between worlds of plenty and worlds of want."  We had it coming.  Mohammad Atta and the other hijackers, Obama concedes, did not "embrace ... diversity."  Otherwise they would have chosen another way to protest the injustice of the West. [...] Obama, too, was a victim of 9/11.  Whatever happens anywhere, it's always about him.  What it was not about, apparently, was Islam.

Obama Honors Selma After Ignoring Gettysburg.  After ignoring the battle that ended slavery under the first Republican president, President Obama at the 50th anniversary of Democrats' blocking the Selma bridge says, "We're the slaves that built the White House."  The parts of American history that this president chooses to commemorate and what he says about them speaks volumes about his view of America and American history.  His America is not only unexceptional, it is perpetually and deeply racist, an overbearing world bully with no right to lecture the world about morality, democracy or freedom.

Obama: The Provincial President.  I miss the days when America was led by a grownup who had faith in his country and its people.  I hope we have that experience once again.

Apparently Mr. Netanyahu admires America more than Mr. Obama does.
Netanyahu's Masterpiece.  From the perspective of the craft of speechwriting, Prime Minister Netanyahu's address to a joint session of Congress was a masterpiece.  The speech started out appropriately high-minded and gracious.  It laid out Mr. Netanyahu's case with logic and care, offering a crisp and indisputable indictment of the Iranian regime and, especially, the fundamental flaws in the deal President Obama wants to strike with Iran.  The conclusion of the speech — where the Israeli prime minister said "I can guarantee you this, the days when the Jewish people remained passive in the face of genocidal enemies, those days are over" — was stirring and evocative.  So was Mr. Netanyahu's obvious love and affection for America.  (Unlike President Obama, Prime Minister Netanyahu, when he describes America, isn't inclined to criticize her.)

Why would anyone think Obama doesn't love America? Plenty of reasons.  [Scroll down]  But beyond generalities about style and persona, Obama's policies, declarations and overall conduct in office make some think he is dissatisfied with America and its self-image.  From the beginning, this president's misguided approach to foreign policy has suggested something about what he sees as America's place in the world.  It goes all the way back to the 2008 campaign, when then-Sen. Obama said he would agree to meet unconditionally with America's enemies, including the leaders of Venezuela, Iran and North Korea. [...] Most recently, the president's gift of recognition to our traditional enemy Cuba — while getting nothing in return — and his inaction as another traditional enemy, Russia, makes a mockery of peace talks and interferes in a country that wants the United States to come to its aid just add to the idea that Obama is quick to let America's enemies have their way.

None Dare Call It 'Islam'.  First of all, Islam has not "been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding," as Obama said yesterday in his speech about combatting terrorism.  Indeed, like most of his public pronouncements, the speech was a Lillian Hellman performance as described by Mary McCarthy:  every word including "and" and "but" was a lie.  Has there ever been a more anti-American president than Barack Hussein Obama, representative of the Weatherman left, student of Bill Ayers, the Reverend ("God Damn America") Wright, and Saul Alinsky?  There have been ostentatiously incompetent presidents before — Jimmy Carter leaps to mind — but has there ever been an anti-American president before BHO?  I can't think of anyone who even comes close.  Even the bumbling fool Carter was a patriot.  No one would accuse Barack Obama of being an American patriot (much though he likes its beaches and country clubs).

Synopsis:  Obama hates America so much, he is trying to get us nuked!
15 Photos From Iran's Revolution Day 2015 Demonstrations You'll Never See In Legacy Media.  Curiously, a massive wave of vicious anti-American sentiment in Iran has been utterly ignored by vintage media, even as the Obama administration does its level best to position the regime as a nuclear power. [...] Experts indicate that the deal being worked out by the Obama administration fails to address Iran's nuclear weaponization program whatsoever.  Which should work out well in the future, what with its development of ballistic missiles, its support of terror groups worldwide, and its virulent hatred of America.

Rudy's Not Alone: Most Republicans Think Obama Doesn't Love America.  In response to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's assertion that President Barack Obama "doesn't love America," a new HuffPost/YouGov poll posed that same question to Americans of different ages, genders and political parties.  The results show that Giuliani is far from alone in his beliefs.  Overall, 47% of respondents said they believe the president loves his country while 35% said he does not.  But the split between Democrats and Republicans on the issue is what was truly striking.

Does Obama Love America or Islam?  Greeting card sentiments come easily to the man who will say anything.  Obama promised to eliminate income tax for seniors making less than $50,000, vowed transparent open government and promised that you could keep your doctor.  His words were empty promises.  Love, of a person or of a country, is not judged by what we say.  It is judged by what we do.

Rudy Giuliani & King Canute.  Barack Obama, Giuliani suggested, didn't "love America," not really.  He hastened to add that he was not questioning the president's patriotism.  Oh, no, never that.  It's just that Obama's habitual denigration of America (he believes in American exceptionalism in the same way that the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism, he once said) led him to conclude that Barack Hussein Obama was not viscerally connected to this country in the same way that, for example, Ronald Reagan was.  The MSM sure didn't like that.  And they liked it even less when Giuliani decided to underscore his comments in the following days.

Giuliani Versus Obama.  [Scroll down]  Anyone who simply looks at the factual evidence as to whether Obama loves America, or does not, will find remarkably little to suggest love and a large amount of evidence, over a long period of years, showing his constant close association with people fiercely hostile to this country.  Jeremiah Wright was just one in a long series of such people.  Barack Obama's campaign promise to "fundamentally change the United States of America" hardly suggests love.  Nor did his international speaking tour in 2009, telling foreign audiences that America was to blame for problems on the world stage.

Sure, Obama loves America — just not the America we live in.  Whenever Obama praises America, especially in foreign lands, he is careful to append caveats that make it clear America should, as he once said in another context, get off its high horse.  He doesn't apologize, exactly, but he makes it clear that his overall image of America is of a morally shrunken, chastened land whose sins render it unfit to exert much authority in the world.  "There have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive," Obama said in France.  We need "a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect," he said in Egypt, [...]

Giuliani: Obama under communist influence since age 9.  "From the time he was 9 years old, he was influenced by Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist," Giuliani told the New York City tabloid, which has also devoted recent cover real estate to hammering Obama's unwillingness to refer to the ISIS terror group as "Islamic extremists."  Giuliani also saw fit to revive the debate over Obama's former attendance at the Chicago church of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, which was a frequent conservative tactic from the 2008 campaign.  "He spent 17 years in the church of Jeremiah Wright, and this is the guy who said 'God d*** America, not God bless America ... Obama never left that church," Giuliani said.

The Editor says...
The time to have this discussion was about six years ago.  Unfortunately, in 2007 most Republicans and all Democrats were afraid to question Mr. Obama's loyalty to this country, reluctant to express doubts about his qualifications, and hesitant to verify his citizenship.  Guess why.

Rudy Giuliani clarifies Obama comments by claiming the President has been influenced by communism, socialism.  "Look, this man was brought up basically in a white family, so whatever he learned or didn't learn, I attribute this more to the influence of communism and socialism" than to his race, Giuliani told the [New York] Daily News.  "I don't (see) this President as being particularly a product of African-American society or something like that.  He isn't," the former mayor added.  "Logically, think about his background...  The ideas that are troubling me and are leading to this come from communists with whom he associated when he was 9 years old" through family connections.

Much Ado About Rudy.  Rudy Giuliani tells a dinner gathering he doesn't believe the president loves America the way he does, and suddenly he's a racist?  Granted, in defending his initial remarks against the charge of racism by invoking the president's "white mother," Giuliani was less than artful.  But he's not the first to observe that Barack Obama doesn't speak of America with the same overtly patriotic warmth expressed by his predecessors, Republicans and Democrats alike.  To the president, it seems, America's faults mean it falls short of greatness; his praise of America is frequently accompanied by a litany of its sins and shortcomings, notably including all those "bitter" Americans "who cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them."

Giuliani: Obama influenced by communists since youth.  "From the time he was 9 years old, he was influenced by Frank Marshall Davis, who was a communist," [Rudy] Giuliani said.  The ex-mayor added that Obama's grandfather introduced him to Davis, a writer and labor activist.  Giuliani also said another bad influence on Obama was Saul Alinsky, a community organizer whom the ex-mayor called a "socialist."  The man once called "America's mayor" also sharply criticized the president for having been a member of a church led by radical Chicago Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Progressives' Peculiar Sense of Patriotism.  So the question of the moment is whether Rudy Giuliani should be flayed or simply drawn-and-quartered for saying that Obama doesn't love America.  Naturally, this has led to Giuliani being called a racist, because the best working definition of racism in America today is any criticism of Obama that stings.

Rudy is Right.  Does Barack Obama like America? The people around him certainly seem to have their reservations.  Michelle Obama said — twice, at separate campaign events — that her husband's ascending to the presidency meant that "for the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country."  She was in her mid 40s at the time, her "adult lifetime" having spanned decades during which she could not be "really proud" of her country. Barack Obama spent years in the Reverend Jeremiah Wright's church as the churchman fulminated:  "G** D*** America!" [...] His social circle includes such figures as Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn, who expressed their love of country by participating in a murderous terrorist campaign against it.

Rudy Giuliani and the one-way taboo.  There is a norm in American politics to presume that all issues and disagreements are between people who are patriotic and love America, except for Republicans and conservatives.  In other words, only Democrats must be presumed to be patriotic and full of love of country.  For example, Democrats are free to attack the Tea Party, which they have lumped together with terrorists.  The Republican-controlled House was even called "terrorists" in White House offical communications.  And when running for the presidency in 2008, Barack Obama labeled President Bush "unpatriotic" for his deficit spending.  But Democrats must be presumed to be decent, patriotic, and motivated purely by love of country.  And when they are not, they cry foul, as did Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who called Giuliani's words "ugly."

Patriotism, Giuliani and Ron Fournier's Credibility Problem.  For years the National Journal's Ron Fournier has held himself up as America's non-partisan truth-teller, as a man of conscience who will always tell it like it is. [...] For two days now, all over Twitter and cable television, Fournier has posed as a Man of Principle outraged over the fact that, in a private setting, Giuliani dared question the love President Obama has for his country (to his credit, Giuliani is now publicly standing by his claim).

Megyn Kelly Calls Out Giuliani: Are You Really Condemning Obama's Patriotism?  Giuliani could only say that he believes he has been perfectly "civil" in his comments about Obama and said the only thing that might change his mind is if the president makes a speech that calls Muslims "barbarians" along with Christians.  "Until he does that, I will have doubts about his emotions, his feelings, his attitudes and the way in which he developed."

Wartime admiral: Obama is 'anti-American, pro-Islamic'.  Retired Adm. James "Ace" Lyons, also a former deputy chief of naval operations, said that the administration's approach to the multiple confrontations with Muslim-based enemies follows a string of White House failures to strike Islamic terrorists stretching back to the Carter era's failure to strike at Iran's leadership after the 1979 hostage taking.  "We've had many opportunities to changed the course of history.  It hasn't mattered whether it's a Democratic or Republican administration, we've failed every one of them," says Lyons, who headed PacFleet from 1985 to 1987.

Giuliani: Obama doesn't 'love America'.  Rudy Giuliani has delivered a political shot-in-the-gut to President Obama, charging the president doesn't "love America."  "I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America," Giuliani told about 60 conservative business leaders gathered Wednesday night at the 21 Club to hear Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Rudy Giuliani Says A 'Horrible Thing' About President Obama.  Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani let loose at a political gathering Wednesday night [2/18/2015], saying he does not believe that President Obama "loves America."  Giuliani made the statement at a dinner attended by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and 60 conservatives, Politico reported.  "I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America," Giuliani told the audience.  "He doesn't love you.  And he doesn't love me.  He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country."

Debbie Wasserman Shultz: GOP should be repulsed by Rudy Giuliani.  Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz on Thursday denounced former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for saying President Obama does not "love America," and she challenged Republican leaders to disavow the remarks.  Speaking to a gathering of state party leaders at the DNC's winter meeting in Washington, Mrs. Shultz had just finished mocking the field of potential Republican presidential candidates when she pointed to Mr. Giuliani as an example of how deeply Republicans detest Mr. Obama.  "For six years the Republican Party has been defined by one thing and one thing only — opposite to President Obama," she said.

The Editor says...
Yes, I agree with Mr. Giuliani's remarks (to the extent that I have read them) I'm proud to say that I am exactly the opposite of Barack H. Obama in many ways, and I oppose everything he stands for.  If I were an elected official, I would be proud to announce my whole-hearted opposition wherever television cameras appear.  Not only that, I would hesitate to vote for a presidential candidate if he did not make repeated denunciations of Barack H. Obama, who is the most incompetent and destructive president this country has ever had to endure.

Cicero and Obama.  [Scroll down]  We now know that Obama recently met with men who call for the destruction of the United States.  In fact, there is no pretense anymore as Obama maintains that one of his duties is to protect and defend Islam while serving in the White House.  In fact, he has stated that he "considers it part of [his] responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."  (Apology Tour Speech at Cairo University in June 2009).  Yet, that 'responsibility' has never been part of the job description of President of the United States, but Obama [has made] it a goal to make certain Islam is defended at all cost.

Obama flashes the Muslim gang sign
Obama and the Muslim Gang Sign.  [Scroll down]  What is Obama up to with this?  In everything he does, mischief is the purpose.  What mischief does he intend now?  There is nothing in Obama's head that is American.  He is an antithetical American, a polar opposite of its values that he is routinely undermining.  He is an unabashed member of the transtribal supertribe that Muhammad created 1,400 years ago; he is of the umma, not of America.  His finger in the air at the African Leaders' Conference is unambiguous evidence.  And it is evidence that you have been had[,] America.

The President Who Doesn't Get It.  Days after the mass beheadings of Coptic Christians in Libya, profoundly serious questions linger in the air.  Does Barack Obama know what's going on all around him?  Does he have the slightest inkling?  Such questions have seemingly a sarcastic edge.  No sarcasm is intended.  Six years of practice seem to have left our president scratching around for clues to the meaning of all the current onslaughts against peace, order and human dignity. [...] It is not possible to remember in modern times a time when America's interests in the wider world seemed of such marginal concern to the keeper of those interests.

Obama defends Islam at all cost.  How President Obama responds to events around him appears to be dictated by a highly specific set of rules, all of which fall within under broad umbrella of disdain for America.  In this way, every word he speaks (and those he refuses to say) and every action he takes (as well as those he avoids) unfolds in a predictable, if not also menacing manner. [...] Whoever would have imagined that the President of the United States would be facilitating terror?  And whoever would have imagined that such a person would be elected not once.  But twice.

Enemies of the West Find a Friend in Obama.  Victor Davis Hanson suggested on NRO this month that Obama's goal is a deliberately calibrated weakening of the United States.  He aims to degrade American might, because he believes that "for America to quietly recede and give other nations a chance to direct their own affairs and become global actors would be far more equitable, leading to a world that far better represents heretofore unrepresented billions of people."  Hanson's is a generous interpretation of Obama's motives.  Whatever Obama's intentions, his actions will serve not to strengthen civilization but to weaken it.  If the United States recedes as Obama seems to wish, those billions of people will not be "represented," but even further subjugated.

Obama's Fanaticism.  On the one hand, we discover that Obama warmly welcomes "Muslim leaders" including "members of known jihadist groups."  And on the other, he "stuns and horrifies Americans, and indeed Christians around the world not to mention victims of Islamist horror" with his bigoted rant at the National Prayer Breakfast.  At what point can it be definitively acknowledged that Obama's loyalties are not with the United States?  Moreover, this man's disregard for humanity is breathtaking and terrifying.

Obama versus America.  In his recent trip to India, President Obama repeated a long-standing pattern of his — denigrating the United States to foreign audiences.  He said that he had been discriminated against because of his skin color in America, a country in which there is, even now, "terrible poverty."  Make no mistake about it, there is no society of human beings in which there are no rotten people.  But for a President of the United States to be smearing America in a foreign country, whose track record is far worse, is both irresponsible and immature.

We need a president who believes in America.  If there's anything we've learned in six years of President Obama's administration it's that he doesn't like us or trust us very much, and that he believes we're not very smart.  We need to replace him with a president who believes in America.

Thomas Sowell: 'Resentment' of America Fueling Obama Amnesty.  ["]If you can't be bothered to look beyond someone's glib rhetoric to his whole history, which is not hidden, and some of it revealed in his own books, then this is the result.  Looking at the whole Reverend Jeremiah Wright episode, [indeed], Obama was in his church for 20 years, and you buy this [nonsense] that he didn't know what Revered Jeremiah Wright was saying?  There are some people today who seem so surprised that Obama has had someone like Al Sharpton visiting the White House dozens of times.  Really?  In just what way is Al Sharpton different from Jeremiah Wright?["]

Barack Obama has apologized more often than you might think.  A brief history of White House apologies.

Malia Obama pictured wearing logo of cop-hating rap group.  I hesitated to write about this until it became reasonably clear that the picture posted on Instagram by the rap collective known as Pro Era was not a lookalike.  But the White House all but confirmed it.

When the American President Hates America.  No one seeks to fundamentally transform something they love.  And let us now consider that fundamental transformation.  Russia has invaded and taken over Crimea.  ISIS stretches across the Middle East beheading Americans.  North Korea now demands we seek its permission before we watch movies.  Police officers are being gun downed in New York to the applause of Obama voters.  And 36 Cubans were just executed by Cuba in celebration of its new found relationship with the United States.  This is how Barack Obama has fundamentally transformed America.  Through word and deed he has pitted neighbor against neighbor, given hostile powers tacit permission to invade their neighbors, and through rhetoric and license to others created a situation where Americans cheer police officers being gunned down.

A Turning Point?  Now that the President is seeking to "normalize" relations with the Communist hell hole of Cuba, is there any totalitarian enemy of the United States that he has not sought to cozy up to?  Russia? check.  Hillary hit the reset button years ago, remember?  Iran? absolutely:  what more could Obama do to assure that Iran becomes a nuclear power?  China?  Obama made a special trip there to agree that the United States to hamstring its economy by adopting emissions standards that China wouldn't have to adopt for decades.

Nonstop Appeasement.  We don't expect much.  It's been nearly six years.  We're long past the point of hoping that Barack Obama will adopt policies that deserve our grudging approval, if not enthusiastic endorsement, particularly on foreign policy and national security.  But we do expect something.  We believe that the president, whatever his ideological disposition, ought to be an unapologetic defender of America when she is smeared or slandered.  At a bare minimum, a president ought not lend credence to those who disparage the United States for imagined offenses.

'Torture' report shows Obama's selective transparency.  Senate Democrats' new report on the CIA's secret detention and enhanced interrogation program outlines several highly disturbing allegations — both about the nature of the harsh techniques used by U.S. officials and the agency misleading both Congress and the White House.  To the extent that national security permits, voters have a right to know what is being done in their name, especially if it is improper.  That's part of government transparency.  But there seems to be incongruity and even political opportunism in President Obama's selective commitment to disclosing the inner workings of the federal government to its employer, the public.

Obama on CIA torture report: "When we make mistakes, we admit them".  President Obama said he believed it was "important" for the Senate Intelligence Committee to release the results of its investigation into the CIA's use of enhanced interrogation techniques, saying in a Telemundo interview airing Tuesday evening [12/9/2014]:  "One of the things that sets us apart from other countries is that when we make mistakes, we admit them."

The Editor says...
Mr. Obama is quick to apologize for what he perceives as America's mistakes, but he never apologizes for his own numerous, avoidable mistakes, such as the use of the IRS as a weapon, the use of the EPA as a weapon, wholesale domestic surveillance, Benghazi, Jeremiah Wright, and this and this and this.

Imagine a World Without America? Obama Can.  On the domestic, economic, military, and foreign policy fronts, Obama is energetically and probably irretrievably weakening the country he has sworn to defend, with surprisingly little concerted opposition, or even awareness, from many politicians or from the still-infatuated members of his constituency.

Understanding the Nihilist in the White House.  In what does Obama believe, and what does he wish to create?  His beliefs are those of the left:  America must be punished and humbled for its crimes, which include colonialism and racism.  And what does he want to build?  He is dedicated to the idea that America must be remade into a leftist welfare state of the European type (or the Chavez type).  Purposely encouraging illegal immigration seems a great way to further those goals, as well as (he believes) to gain the future votes of such immigrants and their offspring for the left.

Our Fundamental Problem Is That We Do Not Have An American President.  This is about culture, not race.  Culturally, Obama is not American.  Even to the black community this should be obvious.  After all, he didn't spend his childhood and early adulthood in the American experience.  Obama was a kid in Indonesia during his formative years, and when he was brought to America he lived in Hawaii, which is the least American state in the country, and reared by people — his grandfather and Frank Marshall Davis, most specifically — who fundamentally disliked and disparaged the American experience.  He marinated in cultural alienation by his own choice all through his college years and then he hung around a bunch of people like Bill Ayers and Rashid Khalidi as he was beginning his professional and political life.

Understanding Obama's Ebola Psychosis.  Obama's neo-Marxist, multiculturalist, identity politics-infused worldview holds that America is an imperialistic, systemically racist, rotten, unjust country that has victimized other nations merely by being wealthy and powerful.  America must be punished and deprived of its power to abuse brutal third-world dictators who fatten themselves while keeping their countries in desperate poverty, he believes.  This is why he can't stop apologizing for America.  This is also why Obama wants to fundamentally transform — that is, destroy — America as we know it.

Taking back America.  Never in my lifetime did I believe this great nation would be taken down and withdrawn from its world leadership position by its own leadership.  While some try to explain away the Obama administration's damaging policies by making excuses, they fail to face reality.  This is a planned agenda.  When then-Sen. Barack Obama announced in 2008 that he was going to fundamentally transform America, few Americans comprehended what that declaration actually meant.  However, with his radical background and his leftist mentors and associates, his agenda became very clear early on in his presidency.

Seeing Ebola Through Obama's Eyes.  The nephew of the black African who brought Ebola to the United States doesn't blame his uncle.  He blames us.  He writes in The Dallas Morning News that his uncle did everything right in Liberia, but still got Ebola, and wasn't treated correctly in the U.S.  The claim is that he had a right to be on U.S. soil and that it's our fault he's dead.  I suspect this is how President Barack Obama views Ebola.  How else do you explain his opposition to a common-sense ban on travel to the U.S. by people from Ebola-infected countries?

Did someone mention Ebola?

It's Time to Remove Obama from Office — Before He Gets Us All Killed.  Only a madman would gamble with our lives, our children's lives, and the entire American economy.  Why would President Obama play "Russian Roulette" with the future of our country?  It's a gamble no sane leader would take.  The life and death issue is Ebola.  The President is more concerned with political correctness (and golf) than taking common sense precautions to prevent a deadly pandemic.  Why does this President not see his responsibility is to keep the odds as low as possible?

Obama's Columbus Day Proclamation: History 'Marred' with 'Violence, Disease, and Deprivation.  In a presidential action issued on Friday [10/10/2014], proclaiming Oct. 13 as Columbus Day, President Barack Obama noted that a "new history" launched by Italian explorer Christopher Columbus' discovery of the new world included the history of American Indians, which he said is "marred with long and shameful chapters of violence, disease, and deprivation."  "In a new world, a history was written," said Obama's proclamation, required by a 1934 Congressional Joint Resolution.  "It tells the story of an idea — that all women and men are created equal — and a people's struggle to fulfill it.  "And it is a history shared by Native Americans, one marred with long and shameful chapters of violence, disease, and deprivation," Obama said.

When the Fulcrum Collapses.  The incompetence and negligence of this administration appear to be intentionally dispensed, complete with an animosity towards this nation on the part of those who have allegedly taken an oath to serve the country.

What Possible Reason Could Obama Have for Refusing to Ban Travel From Ebola-Ravaged Countries?  The most politically correct, "progressive" countries on Earth have banned travel from Liberia and other Ebola-plagued countries for the simple reasons of sanity and safety.  It's a called a quarantine, a state of isolation used by humankind to secure safety from communicable diseases since the beginning of recorded history.  But history, logic, facts and reason find no home in this administration. [...] Is it just me or does it seem that though Obama wants disease to decimate the American citizenry?

Obama Declines to Attend Memorial Dedication for Disabled Veterans.  The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C.  However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation.  This would be among the first national memorials in recent history not to be formally accepted in person by a sitting U.S. president.

President Obama is a fantastic success.  I've argued for years that Obama wants to hurt, not help America.  So let's take a look at the wreckage and carnage from coast to coast... and across the globe under Obama's leadership.  No one could possibly be trying to help America and produce results like this.  It just isn't possible.

Obama's Inexplicable Love for the Dark Side.  Active malevolence toward mainstream America is very much in character for the hard left.  They hate you and me for what Joe McCarthy did sixty years ago to the Stalinist left; and the more we learn about that history, the more it seems that the anti-communists were right.  Their list of America-haters is endless:  Jerry Wright preached hatred for 20 years to the Obamas.  Franklin Marshall Davis, Obama's teenage "mentor", the Hawaiian CPUSA rep and soi-disant poet, specialized in the poetry of racial rage.  Bill Ayers stands by his old demand to "kill your parents."

Things Obama Just Won't Do.  Obama's foreign policy has two goals.  First, Obama disdains the use of American power.  Not just military power but diplomatic and international power as well.  His policy is dedicated to eliminating any action that is undertaken because America's interests demand it.  His aim is to reduce America from a superpower to something less.  He's succeeding.

Rep. Steve King: Obama 'not raised with an American experience'.  Rep. Steve King over the weekend told a crowd in his home state of Iowa that President Obama was not raised with an "American experience." [...] "I can tell you, his vision of American is not like our vision of America — that we know," King said.  "Now I don't assert where he was born.  But I will just tell you that we are all certain that he was not raised with an American experience.  So these things that beat in our hearts when we hear the national anthem, and when we say the pledge of allegiance, doesn't beat the same for him."

On Rainwater and Sewage.  A recent photo featured two marines holding umbrellas that provided "cover" from a few drops of rain — all while the dullard clumsily fielded questions.  This picture is duly ironic, since Obama despises the spirit of our military except as a means to project that malevolent will and ensure America's decline into a nation indistinguishable from Venezuela or Cuba.  And indeed, has he not defecated upon every traditional virtue that America owns that has made her great and noble?  As a strange trick of history, it is the military that has helped cover his nakedness from the willingly blind — even as he has allowed brave men in our armed services to perish for the purpose of his own "political cover."

Barack's Bull Run?  For some reason the cameras that are banned on the border were not banned from the Wynkoop Brewing Co. pizza and pool hall in Colorado where, in lieu of the middle finger, Barack Obama flipped a pool stick at America, banged back a few brewskis and yukked it up with Democratic governor John Hickenlooper.  Cameras being banned from liberal policy hubs most assuredly indicates that whatever is going on there, if truth be told and visuals matched with verbal accounts, the American people would be horrified.  That's probably the reason why cameras are banned from abortion clinics and sonograms are opposed by pro-abortionists.

Our Roost, Obama's Chickens.  We were told that only Obama-haters at home had catalogued the president's apologies abroad, his weird multicultural bowing to authoritarians, his ahistorical speeches about mythical Islamic achievements, his surreal euphemisms for radical Islam, terrorism, and jihadism, his shrill insistence about civilian trials for terrorists and closing Guantanamo, or the radical cutbacks at the Pentagon, coupled with the vast increase in entitlement spending.  But after six years of all that, our allies have got the message that they are on their own, our enemies that there are few consequences to aggression, and neutrals that joining with America does not mean ending up on the winning side.

Unleashed Upon America: Obama Unchained!  Unchained from pretending to be a moderate to get re-elected, Obama is releasing his judgment and rage upon America, wielding his executive pen-sword, causing a bloody massacre of our economy, national security, world standing, freedoms, liberty, and culture.  Now totally unrestrained, with lawless abandonment, Obama dishes out what he believes is well-deserved revenge on America for her crimes against the rest of the world.  Obama is delivering the retribution spoken of by his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who said, "America's chickens are coming home to roost."

When Barry Met Shelly: Authoritarian and Totalitarian Psychology of the Obamas.  [Scroll down]  The ego-defensive splitting in Obama's administration is between ignoble Americans and noble anti-Americans.  The former love this country as she is.  They are negatively projected as white, bitter-clinger Christians, whose beliefs must be supplanted by the noble race/gender-enlightened anti-Americans.  This ideology especially values illegal aliens, who not only are non-white, but have no taint of being connected to the USA at all.

Barack's Second American Revolution.  There is no doubt that what Barack is doing in 2014, and for his entire presidency is to foment Marxist revolution.  There can be no other possible explanation of the various and collective nature of his malfeasance.  The claim is that no person could be so bad as Barack, in terms of leadership, decision making, and always accidentally doing things that harm American interests.  And since Barack cannot hide his leftist instincts anymore, especially given he won't run again for election, we now see his fulsome progressive agenda hard at work.

Obama's Last Card.  With the ongoing collapse of Iraq, the endgame for the worst foreign policy in American history has begun.  It is no less than astonishing to glance over the foreign policy errors made by the Obama administration since 2009. [...] Looking at the record laid out like this, it's easy to understand the more hysterical types who insist that it's all part of a plan, that Obama is a super Bond villain set on bringing Western civilization down in ruins.  But in fact, it's all a result of long-term leftist ideas, chief among them, in the case of foreign policy, that A) the United States is the source of the world's ills, and B) Remove American influence and the world will soon revert to a humanist, collectivist modus vivendi.

A Most Successful President.  If one sets out to destroy the core pillars of a society, to incrementally break down the values of a country, and to dishearten its inhabitants, then Barack Hussein Obama has been a sterling success.  He is no amateur; he is not a feckless individual who doesn't know what he is doing.  His actions are deliberate, and his goals are in direct opposition to the vast majority of the American people.  His so-called misdirections are calculated, and his leadership traits are not intended to support America.  He knows exactly what he is doing, and far too many people still don't comprehend or want to believe the machinations of this man and his underlying political arc.

Barack Obama and His Urban Parasites Declare War on the Constitution.  Who needs the birthers when we have Barack Obama himself?  His recent statement about the role of the U.S. Senate proves that he is a self-declared enemy of the United States Constitution and of its checks and balances on federal power. [...] Of course, Wyoming has the same Senate representation as California specifically to prevent individuals like Barack Obama, and his constituency of urban parasites, from imposing their will on the less populous states.  This "Great Compromise" of 1787 was a condition of these states' willingness to join the United States in the first place.  This is also why each state gets no fewer than three electoral votes, regardless of population.

The 6 Lamest Excuses For Failure From The Obama Administration.  [#3]  Barack Obama wouldn't wear a flag pin because it is a substitute for patriotism:  Like many liberals, Barack Obama doesn't like America very much and overt displays of patriotism repel him.  Because Obama was foolish enough to want to tell the world that he wouldn't wear a flag pin, but couldn't admit the truth because it disgusts the average American, the most unpatriotic President in history said this. [...]

Gridlock is the only thing standing between us and a dictatorship.
Obama blames Founding Fathers' structural' design of Congress for gridlock.  President Obama is taking a swipe at the Founding Fathers, blaming his inability to move his agenda on the "disadvantage" of having each state represented equally in the Senate.  At a Democratic fundraiser in Chicago Thursday night, Mr. Obama told a small group of wealthy supporters that there are several hurdles to keeping Democrats in control of the Senate and recapturing the House.  One of those problems, he said, is the apportionment of two Senate seats to each state regardless of population.  "Obviously, the nature of the Senate means that California has the same number of Senate seats as Wyoming.  That puts us at a disadvantage," Mr. Obama said.

The Editor says...
Mr. Obama seems very perplexed by the Constitution and its origins, even though he was allegedly a lecturer on the Constitution at some college years ago.

Obama Unhappy with America's Constitutional Balance of Powers.  President "I am not a dictator" Obama, the same man who once bemoaned that the U.S. Constitution is deeply flawed and America's Founding Fathers had "an enormous blind spot" when they wrote it, is again complaining that our Constitutional Republic does not satisfy his dictatorial aspirations.  Apparently, the inconvenience of having each state represented equally in the Senate is inconveniencing his ability to shove his leftist personal agenda down the throat of Congress and the American people.

Obama's Constitution.  [Roger] Sherman's greatest contribution was as architect of the so-called Connecticut Compromise.  That was the breakthrough that gave popular representation to the House of Representatives and equal suffrage of the states to the Senate.  It is a core principle of our government.  All the more breathtaking, 225 years later, to hear the President of America carping about it in respect of his political predicament.  Yet, according to a dispatch in the Washington Times, Mr. Obama is "blaming his inability to move his agenda on the 'disadvantage' of having each state represented equally in the Senate."

Obama's ugly anti-Americanism abroad resurfaces in Malaysia.  Most world leaders celebrate the virtues and strengths of their own nations and people, particularly when abroad.  Not this president.  Mr. Obama goes out of his way to undermine America's position in the world by making a show of deferential bows and curtsies to foreign leaders and despots alike.  He lowered himself before Emperor Akihito last week in Japan.  He even bowed to a Japanese mechanical robot.  He once prostrated himself before Saudi King Abdullah and the president of China.  He cozied up as an equal to Cuban dictator Raul Castro in South Africa.  Obsequiousness isn't a virtue — ever — in the leader of the free world.

The Editor says...
In my opinion, Mr. Obama's problem may be self-hatred as much as contempt for America.  I think he can't help but bow and scrape before every bona fide world leader, because he knows that he is just a rabble-rouser from Chicago who has never accomplished anything on his own.

When a bored president just 'mails it in'.  President Obama is what the ranchers on the plains call "all hat and no cattle."  Mr. Putin continues to play him like a cheap guitar (or maybe a zither), and the president continues on his merry way, off nearly every day to raise money to elect Democrats who will applaud as he dismantles American arms, strangles the domestic economy with a growing tangle of red tape, and fritters away American influence.

Palin: Obama Doesn't Understand or 'Chooses to Disrespect our Constitution'.  Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama on Saturday for either not understanding or deliberately disrespecting the Constitution.  "We have a president who doesn't understand or just chooses to disrespect our Constitution," Palin said on Fox News' Cashin In with host Eric Bolling.

Obama Wants to Pay 33% More to U.N. and Other Int'l Groups.  When U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power testifies before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday, the panel will consider a budget request for international organizations that is 33 percent bigger than last year's, including a 43 percent hike in U.S. contributions to peacekeeping missions.  The administration's fiscal year 2015 budget request for the U.N. and other organizations is $4.036 billion, up from $3.031 billion in FY2014.  For contributions to peacekeeping missions, it is asking for $2.518 billion, up from $1.765 [billion] last year.

Dangerous Times: Obama Surrenders.  Obama is the anti-Reagan.  He is the anti-Lincoln and the anti-Truman.  Reagan, Lincoln, and Truman never lost track of the moral high ground.  This administration has never found it.  What seems to motivate Obama and his kind is a bitter hatred for all that is good and decent in America.  It is an inversion of values, driven by demagogues like Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright.

Has Charles Rangel Forgotten the Real 9/11?  [Scroll down]  We should have been aware of where this nation was headed when Barack Hussein Obama was elected president in 2008.  As soon as we heard Michelle Obama say after her husband's selection as candidate, "For the first time in my adult lifetime, I'm really proud of my country...," we knew how little respect both of them had for America. [...] I hope and pray that in the upcoming elections we band together and elect those who love our country and have always been proud of it.

U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet.  U.S. officials announced plans Friday [3/14/2014] to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web.  Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance last year.

The Editor says...
Barack Obama announced (on a Friday, of course) that he is relinquishing U.S. control of the internet to an international body yet to be announced — probably the UN — because he hates America and wants to wreck the economy any way he can.  This malicious act can now be added to the long list of impeachable offenses that have accumulated over the last five years.

U.S. to relinquish remaining control over the Internet.  U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web.  Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash last year to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance.  The change would end the long-running contract between the Commerce Department and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), a California-based nonprofit group.  That contract is set to expire next year but could be extended if the transition plan is not complete.

US to relinquish control over Internet management system.  The U.S. government on Friday announced it is taking steps to relinquish control over the back end of the Internet.  The Department of Commerce announced it is beginning a process to transfer control over the technical system that operates the Internet's domain name system, which ensures that Internet users can get to the websites they're looking for.  Currently, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration — an agency with Commerce — oversees that technical system, named the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).  Historically, it has contracted the operation of IANA out to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number (ICANN) on a biennial basis.  The current contract is set to expire in September of 2015.

U.S. To Give Up Key Internet Governance Role.  Obama administration officials moved late Friday to end the U.S.'s role in overseeing Internet domain names and addresses, announcing plans to relinquish its role by the end of next year and turning the keys over to the global Internet community.  Commerce department officials announced that the U.S. government would relinquish its role overseeing Internet addresses in favor of a to-be-determined global body.  The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has managed the use and governance of domain names and Internet addresses for the U.S. government since 1998, when it was awarded the task by the Commerce Department.  Based in Los Angeles, ICANN oversees the Internet's address system and has moved in recent years to open up new domain names.

U.S. Government to Give Up Key Internet Powers.  Facing international pressure, the U.S. government said Friday it will give up control over important technical aspects of the Internet.  The Commerce Department will no longer oversee the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers, a nonprofit group that manages the Internet's address system.  Larry Strickling, the assistant secretary of Commerce for communications and information, said the "global Internet community" will have the final say over the database of names and addresses that allows computers around the world to communicate with each other.  The Internet was invented in the United States, and the country has long maintained a central role.  But as the Internet has grown, other countries have demanded a greater voice in its governance.

Dinesh D'Souza: Obama Believes in 'Moral Indictment of America and Free Market'.  President Barack Obama believes in the central argument of modern progressivism, according to Dinesh D'Souza. [...] Obama, he said, knows exactly what he is doing.  "The point about Obama is that he is someone who wants to shrink America's footprint in the world," he said.  "He wants to remake America."  Modern progressives like Obama, D'Souza said, believe that "America and the wealth of America is based on theft."  He said they fundamentally believe that America stole land from Native Americans, took the labor of Africans, stole a part of Mexico, and is currently taking oil from the Middle East.  "This is what we are up against," D'Souza said of the "moral attack against capitalism."

Obama Consciously Engineering America's Decline.  [President Obama] views the weakening of American power as a downright positive thing, as a contributor to peace and stability, and a means through which America will be more respected and loved in the world.  Mr. Obama is wrong on every count.  But in a sense it's not at all surprising that the president would hold these views, given the academic and intellectual milieu he comes from.  Liberals like Mr. Obama don't view America as particularly exceptional.  They think "leading from behind" is just what America ought to do and where America ought to be.  Mr. Obama, then, isn't any different than your run-of-the-mill man of the left.  What is different is that Barack Obama isn't on the faculty of Columbia; he's commander in chief of the United States.  Which means that his misguided views are downright pernicious.

Obama's Foreign Policy: Enemy Action.  [President Obama seems to think] that America's power is corrupt, we need a foreign policy of withdrawal, retreat, and apologetic humility, with our national sovereignty subjected to transnational institutions like the U.N., the International Court of Justice, and the European Court of Human Rights — exactly the program that Obama has been working on for the last 5 years.  Given the damage such policies are serially inflicting on our security and interests, it starts to make sense that inexperience or stupidity is not as cogent an explanation as enemy action.

Obama's SOTU: 18 Lies and Distortions That Should Concern Us.  Mr. Obama began the speech by saying 'my fellow Americans.'  Is he serious, do you think?

Obama's Foreign Policy Betrays Military Superiority.  The takeover of Fallujah by al-Qaida wipes out our costly 2004 victory in which we captured the Iraqi city at the cost of 100 Marines and soldiers killed in action, and hundreds more wounded.  Fallujah isn't just an Obama mistake; it's the exemplar of Obama's disastrous foreign and military policies designed to reduce the power and prestige of America on the world stage.  Obama's military policies are not merely based on his incompetence.  They are part of his personal philosophy to redistribute power in the world, [...]

The Schizophrenia of Barack Obama.  Barack Obama is a man with only one core conviction.  He has, as the basic foundation of his otherwise disorganized and uncertain belief system, the irrefutable tenet that the United States, because of its European roots, has been the epitome of oppression and arrogance throughout its history. [...] The autocrats that ran roughshod throughout the nineteenth and twentieth century were determined to aggregate power in a central authority and to achieve an exalted position for their countries.  Barack Obama, on the other hand, is determined to denigrate and diminish the stature of his nation as he otherwise emulates the tactics of these despots.

Christiane Amanpour Gushes as Obama Shakes Hands with Castro.  President Barack Obama declined even to attend the funeral of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.  Instead of attending, he dispatched a pair of former secretaries of state to attend.  Obama attended the funeral of Nelson Mandela in South Africa and addressed the service.  He also mixed and mingled, and CNN had its cameras trained on his every move, capturing this revealing moment.  [Photo]  "Castro!  He's shaking hands with Raul Castro!" Amanpour shouts as Obama seeks Castro out, bows to the Cuban dictator and takes his hand.

Obama is not a Pathological Liar, He is an Ideological Liar.  Like communism, the collapse of the Obama Administration agenda is inevitable, not solely as a result of its many flawed policies, but because it lacks an ethical dimension in regard to individual rights, justifiable criteria for its use of state coercion and, in particular, a respect for the truth.  Stated simply, Obama lies because the true objectives of his fundamental transformation of the United States are incompatible with American democracy and tradition.

Remaking the Military in the Image of Obama.  The people's savior is giving the heave-ho to military brass who can't quite get with the program, which might be described as inflicting a smothering political correctness on the nation's armed forces.  Political correctness is actually too charitable.  What Comrade Obama is committing is ideological warfare on the traditions and virtues that are at the core of the armed forces — and, in fact, the nation's core.  Part and parcel of this war against the traditional military is the mainstream media-neglected war on faith — Judeo-Christian faith, that is — among our men and women in uniform.

Navy SEALs ordered to remove 'don't tread on me' Navy Jack from uniforms.  The Navy Jack is the 'don't tread on me' flag, one that has earned a revered place in America's naval history and a beloved place in sailor's hearts, through its use for over two centuries. [...] So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol?  Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag?  Is President Obama?

'This is nothing less than a profile in cowardice': Obama refuses to speak at 150th anniversary of Gettysburg.  President Barack Obama's affinity for Abraham Lincoln was on display through his political rise, but he won't be on hand to mark one of the 16th president's signature moments.  Obama has refused to attend the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address in Pennsylvania on November 19.  His decision, which has not been explained, has infuriated local media.

I Ache for a President Who Loves America.  If there's one thing that bugs me about the Obama years it is the palpable fact that Obama doesn't love America.  The last two weeks has intensified that feeling.  We know why he doesn't love America.  It's because he identifies with his Kenyan father's hatred of Western colonialism.  If that weren't enough, Obama follows the cultural cues of liberal America, from his lefty mother to his lefty teenage mentors to his lefty college instructors to his lefty radical sponsors in Chicago.  Liberals think they are too good for America.  Ditto Obama.

President Obama wants you and your kids to be his co-victims.  Because of psychological injuries he has described suffering at the hands of his father and mother and grandmother in childhood and adolescence (when he could not protect himself), [Barack Obama] views anyone who is strong and independent as potentially threatening.  It seems to me that free will itself, when exercised by others, feels ominous to the president.  It is no surprise, then, that Mr. Obama would project his distrust and anger upon America itself, at least in the form of a Constitutional democracy.  A free people, empowered to make their own choices, sets off alarm bells for him.

Putting Military Families in Harm's Way.  So the families of service members killed in the line of duty since October 1 will receive death benefits after all.  Last night [10/10/2013], President Obama signed a bill that specifically authorized those payments.  But the late-night drama wasn't necessary at all.  Nothing had ever prevented the administration from making those payments.

Obama the hostage-taker.  For the first time in US history, a president confessed to deliberately hurting his country to score points against his enemies.  Which brings us to the national disgrace this week in which the Defense Department denied death benefits to the families of fallen service members.  White House Press Secretary Jay Carney insists, with operatic righteousness, that Obama never intended for the 26 families of the fallen to be denied this aid or to be hindered from retrieving their beloveds' remains from Dover Air Force Base.  But Carney is surely lying.

Obama vs. the Veterans.  The government has been shut down since October 1st and President Obama has decided to close Washington by making life as inconvenient as possible.  He did this before with the Sequestration when he would not permit any White House tours.  Instead of understanding that he should work for the best interests of Americans, helping them wherever possible, he has done just the opposite.  It appears he sees this as a game where he wants to win at all costs with the clear loser the American people.

The Face of Tyranny.  It is beginning to dawn on a lot of people that Barack Obama is the face of tryanny, a man for whom the Constitution, the democratic process and its need for compromise, exist only to be spurned.  Any President who is happy to preside over closing the White House to public tours, who authorizes placing barricades around Washington War Memorial that is normally open 24 hours a day as well as the Normandy, France D-Day cemetery where our soldiers are buried, is more than merely heartless, but represents a level of evil intent never before seen in anyone who has held that office.

National Park Service Admits It Discussed Plan To Close War Memorials With Obama Officials.  In other words, we were right all along, this was orchestrated by the Obama regime to make the shutdown as painful as possible.

Obama Has Dismantled America.  Obama seems bound and determined to drive America over a cliff and make [Fareed] Zakaria's vision of the future a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Obama went to work from his first day in office to make Zakaria's wishful thinking about America's decline a reality.  As the most powerful man in the world, he would level the playing field, even if it meant cutting America off at the knees.  Good and evil would be made equivalent, with evil sanctioned by the world's only remaining superpower.

By Weakening America, Obama Plays Into Putin's Hands.  The dream of American demise didn't expire with the collapse of the USSR, and the dream of Russian superiority and influence in the world didn't leave the minds of Russian nationalists.  By transforming America, the Obama administration, with the support of progressive journalists, college professors, liberal judges and pop-culture moguls, is actively participating in the realization of Russia's dreams.

Obama the Storyteller.  President Obama unwittingly disclosed his modus operandi in a single statement back in 2012.  The sentence explains why he has been able to both win elections and been such a failure once in office.  In the summer of 2012, President Obama refused to take responsibility for failures during his first term.  As is his wont, he blamed others. In this case it was not the "usual suspect," Republicans, but all Americans.

America-hating Obama a Threat to World Freedom.  The U.S. is tolerating a president whose life's passion is a poisonous hatred of America.  Not a single Senator from either side of the political aisle has called Barack Hussein Obama out on his palpable hatred of the country that pays his heavy freight.

Obama Is Grooming America To Be The World's Mall Cop.  [Scroll down]  At the root of this is leftist guilt.  We have a president who believes U.S. history consists of crimes, like liberating Iraq, enhanced interrogation of terrorists, and the 1953 coup that saved Iran from Soviet domination, for which Obama apologized in his 2009 Cairo speech.  In fact, U.S. global power, by promoting our strategic interests, has over the decades since World War II prevented the genocide and enslavement of billions, by communists and, more recently, by Islamofascists.

The Implications Of Fundamental Change.  Let's first concede that Obama expressly admitted his goal of fundamentally changing the nation — an alarming thought to most patriots.  Let's also acknowledge that Obama's perception of pre-Obama America is largely negative.  He has made that abundantly clear during the past five years, with his incessant harping on the state of the African-American community, his articulation of class warfare themes, his virtually overt war on our domestic energy industries and his harsh criticism of American health care, the insurance industry, the "wealthy" and various other targets.  By pitting Americans against each other, he produces both the distraction and the fuel to facilitate his goal of fundamental change.

Dangerous Times: Are Obama's Syrian Stumbles Good for America? By now it's impossible to avoid the conclusion that Obama is fervently anti-American.  Which is what you might learn from his personal history, all the way from Mom the Stalinist, to his "mentor" Frank Davis the child pornographer, all the way to the "Reverend" Jerry Wright and the Alinsky Machine in Chicago.  They all sing the same song, and love for America is never part of it.  There's no way Obama could have been marinated in that toxic stew all his life and not come out as a feverishly anti-American ideologue.  Today we see the proof.

Community Organizer Goes to War.  Oh, how I long for the days when liberals wailed that "the rest of the world" hated America, rather than now, when the rest of the world laughs at us.

The Editor says...
Having America's credibility ruined might very well be one of Barack H. Obama's goals.

What Animates Barack Hussein Obama?  In a 2013 fund-raising letter, Allen West wrote that "Obama's completely incoherent foreign policy is putting our strongest allies in grave danger.  His extreme ambivalence is simply unacceptable."  But is it really incoherent?  Obama's mentors have long taught him to despise America.

Ho Chi Minh, Obama's Freedom Fighter.  Ho Chi Minh was a committed Marxist-Leninist revolutionary who cut his teeth at Moscow's Lenin School.  He became one of the Soviet Comintern's most successful agents.  Among the testimonies to his efforts are the countless boat people from Vietnam who now live in America (many of whom voted for Obama).  But not only is Obama's statement nonsense; it's also the product of communist propaganda.

The Rise of Al-Qaeda and Why the Administration Lied about Benghazi.  You don't have to be Muslim to love the Muslim Brotherhood or even, consciously or unconsciously, sympathize with the goals, if not the actions, of al-Qaeda.  You just have to have been imbued with a blind hatred of imperialism.  That's all you need.  What this myopia leads to, however, is consorting with people with no values at all.

Obama: Ho Chi Minh Was Inspired by Our Founders.  President Obama hailed hard-core communist revolutionary Ho Chi Minh today as a pretty open guy who was actually inspired by the Founders.  Obama took a break from his jobs-pivot speeches to meet Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang at the White House.  The pair held joint remarks in the Oval Office afterward.

Obama claims Ho Chi Minh was fan of Founding Fathers.  Move over Jane Fonda, President Barack Obama has all but toppled you from that iconic anti-aircraft gun perch as as America's top Communist Viet Nam booster.  Talking to reporters as he stood beside Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang yesterday [7/25/2013], Obama told his biggest whopper to date:..."we discussed the fact that Ho Chi Minh was actually inspired by the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and the words of Thomas Jefferson."

The Obama-Zinn connection.  From time to time, we have noted President Obama's lack of knowledge about American history.  The most recent manifestation — his claim that Ho Chi Minh was inspired by America's Founding Fathers — suggests that Obama's ignorance is to some extent willful.  It is, in any event, not accidental.  From Stanley Kurtz, we learn that Obama is a fan of the leftist historian Howard Zinn. [...] It shouldn't come as a surprise that President Obama had a special interest in the views of an anti-American historian.

Linking Jefferson To Ho Chi Minh [is] A New Low For Obama.  Few comparisons have been as odious as the one offered by the president linking one of the great mass murderers of history to one of America's Founding Fathers and authors of our liberty. [...] The 44th president conveniently forgot Vietnamese history and slandered ours by linking a founder of our democracy, Thomas Jefferson, to the mass murderer Ho Chi Minh.

The Obama doctrine is a huge failure because it isn't based on US interests.  Simply put, the Obama doctrine has been disastrous because it fails to protect and advance US interests.  It is the antithesis of Ronald Reagan's approach, which was based on powerful American leadership on the world stage, including a willingness to firmly stand up to America's adversaries and support those fighting against tyranny.

Will the Senate Rubber-Stamp Power's Contempt?  Contempt of Congress and obstruction of the Senate's constitutional advice-and-consent obligation is the only way to interpret the performance of Samantha Power during Wednesday's [7/17/2013] hearing on her nomination by President Obama to become U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Power has a long history of decrying "crimes committed, sponsored, or permitted by the United States."  Of demanding that the United States apologize for its sundry "sins."

The Obama Doctrine of Control Through Dissension.  With an eye toward stepping in and reorganizing everything from our social and economic structure to the U.S. Constitution, it appears that Obama's plan to gain control involves stirring up discord and agitating every area of society to the point of near-collapse.  Barack Obama has managed to undermine the nation's unanimity through the deliberate fostering of racial, political, religious, and class-based conflict.  In other words, the President of the United States is actively endeavoring to community-organize America to death.

If racial unrest follows Zimmerman jury decision, blame it on Activist Obama.  President Barack Hussein Obama came into the power of the White House as an activist — pushed by activists.  Foreboding for the future of America, Obama will always be an activist.  He doesn't know what else to be because he's always been an activist.  Even as an Illinois senator, he merely wore the title without doing any of the heavy lifting.  In the day-to-day running America, Obama leans on the tools of activism and has been doing so ever since he first got elected. [...] As bad as some [previous Presidents] were, they were at least sincere.  Not one of them ever came into office as an activist with a publicized intent for the 'Fundamental Transformation of America'.

But Words Can Never Harm Me.  [Scroll down]  About a year ago, Peter Beinart wrote in the Daily Beast, "Egypt Policy Shows How Well Obama Has Managed America's Decline".  He was not writing tongue in cheek. He was really delirious with happiness that things were going so well.  Barry Rubin argues some in the administration actually believe that if you fight political Islamism, it will only make them mean.  Now you may laugh at this statement.  But cry at this one:  they actually believe this stuff.

Naked power play: Obama stops Obamacare employer mandate.  In a display of raw power, President Obama has once again declined to enforce the law.  Obama does not like democracy.  He has longingly told leaders of nations without democratic traditions that he wishes he had the kind of power they wield.  He has told people it would be much easier to be the president of China.  It probably would be.  The president of China can rule by decree and have his political opponents jailed or executed.

Obama can't even fake patriotic pride any more.
Awkward: President Obama Stumbles Through Scripted 'Patriotic' Speech.  President Obama stumbled through a "patriotic" speech on the Fourth of July, reading verbatim a text on America's improbable experiment in "democracy" in a staccato and droll tone.  Surrounding him was a dour cast of stoic figures — save for First Lady Michelle Obama, who broke into "slow applause" mode when her husband called America "the greatest nation on earth" while a smattering of hand-clapping accompanied her. [...] As with all things, the president's actions speak louder than his scripted words.

"We are going to have to change our conversation; we're going to have to change our traditions, our history; we're going to have to move into a different place as a nation."
Michelle Obama,        
May 14, 2008.        

Obama's Fundamental Transformation of a Nation He Despises.  [Scroll down]  Does President Obama really hate the American people that much?  I think he does.  He hates America as it is and as it has been, and, as he openly admits, he wants nothing less than to "fundamentally transform America."  One does not completely transform a nation into the opposite of what it is unless one hates that nation as it is.  That fact explains why Obama has done so little to protect America while doing so much to spy on, disparage, and attack ordinary Americans.

Obama Ignores D-Day Anniversary.  Today is June 6, the 68th anniversary of the D-Day Invasion.  Where is your president?  He passed through Joint Base Andrews en route to attend four campaign events.  Add the vice president's lone line item in today's schedule, which is also a campaign event in substance, and the administration's top two are taking no note whatsoever of one of the greatest and most dangerous days in American history.

Is Obama waging psychological warfare on Americans?  I believe that the Obama administration is conducting psychological warfare on conservative Americans.  Not only that but it is also waging this war on all Americans who previously viewed themselves, their country, their Constitution and their overwhelming belief in God as a force for good in the world.

The Chinese Elephant in the Room.  Over the past couple of years, the Obama administration has allowed — he's supposedly "Commander-in Chief," and thus responsible for all national security issues, including breaches — the Communist Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) to hack into our military computer system and steal virtually all our military weapons designs.  What Obama got in return is not clear, since like everything else in his "most transparent administration ever," his political donors have been largely kept secret.

The Editor says...
It could be that the Chinese are the world's best hackers.  Or it could be that they were simply given access to anything they wanted.  Who would do such a thing?  The same sort of person who would tell the Russians exactly how many nuclear warheads the United States has.  The kind of person who hates America and is sick of the United States being the world's only superpower.  Know anybody like that?

Presidents Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon were in jeopardy for far less serious offenses.
President Obama should be impeached and removed from office.  Johnson covered up nothing, Clinton and Nixon covered up tawdry and felonious deeds, but Obama has covered up criminal malfeasance regarding an attack comparable in importance to the rebel firing on Fort Sumter.  But whereas President Lincoln rose to the challenge, President Obama has attempted to take refuge in dangerous illusions about the nature of our Islamic enemy and thereby has put America at perpetual risk of more attacks.  Obama is guilty of considerably more than bad judgment.  His soul-based dishonesty exceeds even malfeasance in office.  The man has sought to "transform" our nation not merely because he misunderstands its founding principles and Constitution but rather because he holds both in contempt.

Obama: Americans 'Are Root Cause of Violence That's Been Happening Here in Mexico'.  President Barack Obama, speaking in Mexico City on Friday, said the United States is responsible for much of the crime and violence in Mexico because of the demand for drugs and the illegal smuggling of guns across the southern border.

Obama Spins Furiously On Guns.  Barack Obama's comments about guns in Mexico today [5/3/2013] demonstrated a curious lack of self-awareness.  "[M]ost of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States."  So the violence perpetrated by Mexican drug cartels is our fault?  That seemed to be the implication.  But obviously, if there were not a single firearm in the U.S., the drug cartels would be just as well armed as they are today.

'El Obamabore The Hypocrite' comes to "México".  Legions of American soldiers must have turned in their graves when the President of the Unites States of America made a mockery of their sacrifice by throwing in with Mexico yesterday [5/4/2013]. [...] Patriots in all countries are the same in putting country first and any patriots in the Mexico crowd would ponder how patriotic a president who puts his own country down.

Will Barack Obama ever stop apologising for America?  Is there no end to the apologies that President Obama has made for his own country?  Instead of blaming America, Obama should have called on the Mexican government to do far more to deal with the drug gangs and the rampant lawlessness, which is spilling over the border into the United States.  Why not praise the courageous work of US law enforcement agents fighting bravely against Mexican drug cartels?

Whose Side Is he On?  Obama has never been a president for all of the American people.  From the very beginning of his Regime, he immediately set out to divide Americans and pit us against each other.  He is a president who has been working to demoralize, discourage and defeat a large percentage of us.  For the first time in our lives, we know we have a president who is not on our side.

30 Reasons To Dislike Barack Obama.  [#23]  Time and time again he has said and done things that indicate that he doesn't like America, is ashamed of the country and finds the whole nation to be slightly embarrassing.

Battered Country Syndrome.  In the name of politics, we are being punished because the [president] did not get what he wanted, and he's angry at us.  But he was angry at us before.  He told the whole world that he was angry from the beginning of his tenure, when he went around the world and threw us under the proverbial bus in speech after speech.  Now, he is making sure that future reductions in the rate at which he can waste our tax dollars translate into present inconvenience and discomfort at airports.

Obama's plan hatched at Columbia University.  [Barack Obama] says he graduated Class of '83.  Let's give him the benefit of the doubt.  Well then Obama had to attend the same Political Science classes as me and I can tell you, almost to a man, my classmates in the Class of '83 proudly called themselves Marxist, communist or socialist.  They bragged of being radical like a badge of honor.  They openly hated America — calling it racist.  They hated capitalism — and vowed to bring "the system down."  In my class the typical Columbia political science student vowed to destroy capitalism, bankrupt business owners, and vaporize what they called "the white power structure."

Barack Obama blames US Navy for increased North Korean tensions.  Ever notice that this administration is only lightning-fast when it comes to shifting blame when things don't work out perfectly?

Closing the White House as Mental Abuse.  Mrs. Obama is frequently compared to Marie Antoinette.  She spends hundreds of millions of dollars a year on her own pleasure and aggrandizement while urging the peasants to plant gardens.  And for the first time in American history, we have a president who insults us across the world, disavows the idea that American is special, enriches our enemies such as the Muslim Brotherhood, and degrades our achievements ("You didn't build that.").

Obama: Marxist Revolutionary.  By now most people, even the "low-information voters," know that Obama is a habitual, unabashed liar.  What they need to grasp, however, is that his biggest and most dangerous lie is that he is out to help the Middle Class. [...] The Middle Class, aka We, the People, is his greatest, most hated enemy, and everything he has done since he usurped the office he occupies has been aimed at our destruction as a viable economic, social, and political entity.

No Need For Guns In America.  Tyranny is coming in America, despite the fact that more than half of her citizens are too deluded, arrogant, or stupid to see it.  If Obama's policy processes continue unchecked, America will experience cataclysmic civil unrest; again, unfathomable to most Americans, this is precisely what Obama intends.

GOP Rep: 'The Only Constitution That Barack Obama Upholds Is The Soviet Constitution'.  President Obama has "no concept" of the U.S. Constitution, despite his previously being a constitutional law professor, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  Rather, he said, the president upholds the constitution of our old Cold War foe. [...] "I don't know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it's not this one," he added.  "I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one.  He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer."

Sec. of State? Kerry's Criticism of U.S. Foreign Policy Goes Back 42 Years.  Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), President Barack Obama's nominee for Secretary of State — Hillary Clinton is expected to resign from the position this spring — has often been critical of U.S. foreign policy, likening some American soldiers in Vietnam to Ghenghis Kahn and to war criminals, and being "Messianic" and fueling international animosity, among other criticisms.

A diversionary announcement to draw attention away from the Benghazi scandal:
Obama Wants 100,000 American Students to Study in Communist China.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday [1/24/2013] will celebrate the launch of a newly rebranded organization called the "100,000 Strong Foundation," which aims to have 100,000 American students studying in China by 2014.  Thursday's event will "underscore the importance of study abroad in China and the benefits to our strategic relationship with China as well as the personal benefits individuals receive through these exciting experiences," the news release said.  Until now, the 100,000 Strong Initiative — announced by President Obama on his trip to China in 2009 — has operated inside the State Department.  Thursday's 1 p.m. ceremony marks its transition to a non-profit, nongovernmental organization operating independently.

The twilight of America.  Barack Obama has now proposed filling the three positions in the US administration most concerned with the security of the nation and the defence of the free world, those at State, Defence and the CIA, by three men who have all taken up positions which can only strengthen those who threaten the security of America and the survival of the free world.

Barack Obama will attend Gangnam Style concert despite rapper's anti-American protests.  President Barack Obama will attend a charity concert where PSY is scheduled to perform after it emerged the South Korean rapper participated in anti-American protests several years ago.

Obama, Biden Cozy Up to Anti-American Rapper Psy.  Had President-elect Mitt Romney posed for pictures with someone who once wished violent death upon the family members of U.S. soldiers the story would be swirling through the mainstream media for days.  Maybe longer.  Vice President Joe Biden did just that earlier today with rap star Psy, while President Barack Obama shared a laugh with the South Korean rapper known for his wildly popular "Gangnam Style" video.

Obama Meets, Shakes Hands and Shares Laugh with Rapper Psy.  Barack Obama met tonight [12/9/2012] with Psy, the anti-American South Korean rapper, at the Christmas in Washington Charity Concert.

Our anti-American president loves that anti-American Psy-chotic Korean rapper.  Barack Obama is an embarrassment to America.  He shook the hand of a man who openly calls for the murder of American soldiers and their families.

Merry Christmas, America-Haters?  When TNT was preparing its annual special "Christmas in Washington" with the president of the United States, you'd think the last star musician they would consider to join the official caroling would be Psy, the South Korean rapper. [...] This inane publicity stunt backfired when the website Mediaite reported on Dec. 7 that Psy (real name: Park Jae-sang) had participated in a 2002 protest in which he crushed a model of an American tank with a microphone stand.  But that's nothing compared to the footage of a 2004 performance after a Korean missionary was slaughtered by Islamists in Iraq.  These lyrics cannot be misunderstood.

A Few Things I Never Want to Hear Again:  [#4]  "I know he's a good man, and wants what's best for America."  I hope this is the last presidential election in which conservatives will have to hear this validate-your-opponent claptrap from their standard-bearer.  Barack Obama is neither a good man nor one who wants what is best for America.  He is a bad, conscienceless man, who wants to undo America in the name of a very foreign model of social organization.

Obama's Apology Tour Was Crafted By Handful Of Radical Advisors.  In fact, the president has followed a "doctrine of mea culpa" crafted by a handful of radical advisers who have urged him to, in so many words, apologize for America's war on terror and nuclear superiority.

Obama's Trip to the Dark Side.  If the Ahmadinejads of the world want to defeat us, they need inside help.  They need leaders who loathe America as they do — leaders who will pursue destructive policies that progressively weaken us from within.  America's enemies need an American president to adopt Carter-esque policies like these[...]

Exceptionalism Obama versus Bowing Obama.  Good news, America!  Just three years and 351 days into his presidency, President Obama has finally accepted the concept of American exceptionalism in the world.

Social Justice is a Proven Failure... and So Is Obama.  There is a reason that Obama's ideological policy efforts have failed America.  It is because they, like his ideology, are not American.  No, I am not suggesting that he wasn't born here or that he's not an American citizen.  I am stating with absolute certainty that his core ideology is predicated upon anything but liberty.  And since liberty is at the very core of American ideology, he is thoroughly un-American.

Obama slandered America as racist using dishonest claims about the response to Hurricane Katrina.  The Daily Caller has obtained and posted video of a 2007 speech by Barack Obama in Hampton, Virginia.  Speaking to an audience of black ministers, and using a black dialect only marginally more authentic than Joe Biden's, Obama claims that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism. [...] But as the Daily Caller points out, by January 2007, six months before Obama's Hampton speech, the federal government had sent at least $110 billion to areas damaged by Katrina.  This was more than five times the money that the Bush administration pledged to New York City after 9/11.

America Won't Survive Another Four Years of Obama.  We are becoming a different people, more like the feckless, infertile, dependent Europeans and less like the men and women who built this country.  We aren't there yet.  But we have lost so much ground under Obama that we do not know whether the country will pass a point of no return during a second Obama term. [...] A president who disparages and undermines entrepreneurship, promotes dependency, fails to defend American security interests, and apologizes for American values is a big part of the problem.

No Vetting Needed.  Obama is out in plain sight before Americans and the rest of the world.  There is no mystery.  Nothing to uncover.  He has intentionally taken America down.  His most recent proclamation at the United Nations that "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam" says it all, doesn't it?  There is nothing vague about that comment.

Stop Apologizing for Our Liberties.  The last few weeks have witnessed a peculiar and disturbing spectacle:  An American administration that has spent a great deal of time and energy apologizing for our liberties — in particular, for what many would regard as the foundation of all our other liberties, namely, the freedom to express our minds as we see fit.  This signature freedom, of which Americans were once so boastful, has clearly become a source of befuddled embarrassment to the current administration and many of its liberal supporters.

The Commonness of Barack Obama.  For the first time, Americans elected a president whose formative years were spent far away from the American mainland — a man who (along with his mentor, wife, minister, and others who have been closest to him) has an intense, deep-seated dislike for the country that elected him.  Obama was dead serious when he said he wanted to "remake" America — just as his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, wasn't fooling when he sided with Stalin against Truman's America; just as Michelle wasn't fooling when she said in 2008 that it was the first time she was proud of her country; just as Rev. Jeremiah Wright wasn't fooling when he raged, "God d*** America!"  So, yes, the president is unique among American presidents.  However, against the backdrop of human history, and compared to other heads of state, Barack Obama is drearily common.

D'Souza Gets Boffo Results By Exploding Obama Story.  The book and film [by Dinesh D'Souza] link Barack Obama with his estranged late Kenyan father and suggest the two share a deep-seeded hatred for colonialism and capitalism. [...] What the film is suggesting is that Obama's agenda is one of downsizing America in the world -- downsizing our economy, reducing our consumption of energy, reducing our nuclear weapons and shrinking America's footprint in the world.  My point is that these are not the accidental result of Obama's policies, they're actually his goals.  The anti-colonial ideology helps to explain why they are his goals.

September 11, 2012 — and Obama Apologizes.  Four Americans are killed in Libya, our consulate burned and our Egyptian embassy stormed on the anniversary of 9/11 after we apologize for a film allegedly "insulting to Islam." [...] Maybe President Obama shouldn't have skipped all those national intelligence briefings.

As We Approach the Final Battle to Save America.  Obama is the most far-left-radical, racially polarizing, and anti-Christian president in U.S. history.  Though once thought incomprehensible by many, Americans are beginning to accept the devastating truth that our president is intentionally undermining our country.

Obama's First Real Election.  Barack Obama is an odd bird in American presidential politics. [...] The examples of Obama's subtle oddities are many.  The biggest ones are his deep, public bows to foreign potentates, an act that alienates him from more than two centuries of American public behavior.  Those showy bows were not accidental.  They were planned, and they reflect his frothing resentment against this country.

Why President Obama Hates America.  Barack Hussein Obama Sr., who died in 1982, was an African communist and anti-colonialist who hated the West.  He wanted to see powers like Britain and what he viewed as its imperial successor, America, punished for oppressing peoples and exploiting their labor and resources.  Obama Jr. shares his father's animosity and is doing his bitter bidding, according to "2016," which is written and narrated by scholar Dinesh D'Souza and based on his book, "Roots of Obama's Rage."  The son, D'Souza warns, is on "a campaign of revenge" to bring down America as a "military and economic power."  While hard to accept, the film answers what the media refuse to even question.

AP Undoes Its Own 'Fact Check' on D'Souza's '2016: Obama's America'.  D'Souza's thesis is that President Barack Obama is deeply influenced by the anti-colonial views of his father, Barack H. Obama, Sr.  I happen to think that D'Souza's argument is, at best, a partial explanation of Obama's views.  The term "anti-colonial" is a good first pass at Obama's foreign policy, which often neglects traditional American allies in favor of rapprochement with hostile regimes.  However, Obama's focus is domestic policy, and his preference for a weakened America on the world stage grows from his desire to see the U.S. adopt the redistributionist policies of other nations.  He is focused inward, not outward.

Five Times Obama Has Apologized for America.  The Obama campaign and notoriously liberal "fact-check" websites such as, Politifact, and the Washington Post's "Fact Checker" said President Obama never went on an "apology tour" and has never apologized for American actions.  However, in the first few months of the president's term, Obama repeatedly did speak of America's past mistakes in a series of appearances, several of which fell in foreign countries.  It was also revealed in a top secret cable published in 2011 by Wikileaks that the Japanese government vetoed the idea of President Obama visiting Hiroshima in September 2009 and apologizing for the atomic bomb.

Downsizing America: The Obama Doctrine in Action.  Many of Obama's actions and policies can seem incomprehensible coming from the leader of the most powerful nation in the world.  They are therefore often attributed to bungling and ineptitude.  However, according to D'Souza, this is a President who did not seek the highest office in the land to preserve American greatness and leadership.  Instead, Obama's core motivating philosophy is deeply rooted anti-colonialism.  D'Souza sees the President as successfully pursuing a vision concealed by political rhetoric from most Americans who voted for Obama.  From Obama's perspective, says D'Souza, America is too rich, consumes too many of the world's resources, is militarily too strong, and has to be reduced to its proper place among the eight or so major nations of the world.  "He wants... an America in decline so that other nations might rise."

"2016: Obama's America" — a box office success.  [Scroll down]  As for the merits of D'Souza's thesis, I agree with John that we don't need Barack Obama Sr. to account for his son's attitude toward the West, toward America, and toward free enterprise.  That attitude is pretty standard among left liberals.  For example, as John says, Hillary Clinton marinated in the view that America needs to be cut down to size just as much as Obama did.  But perhaps Barack Obama Sr. can help explain the intensity of his son's hostility toward traditional American beliefs and values and toward its traditional role in the world.  Unlike the case of many on the left, Obama's hostility did not begin as an act of juvenile rebellion or as a way of fitting in with his peers.  Rather, it seems deeply rooted in personal biography and psychodrama.

Love Him or Hate Him, You Don't Know Him: Obama's America — 2016.  I attended a recent screening of the surprise box office hit "Obama's America: 2016."  The documentary is narrated by Dinesh D'Souza and based upon two of his most recent books, including "The Roots of Obama's Rage."  D'Souza's thesis is that Obama embraced his father's anti-colonial legacy and seeks to transform America into a second or third class nation as a form of retribution for America's past cultural and political imperialism.  Obama is a proponent of failed economic policies that have left much of the Third World mired in poverty.

Obama's Anti-Colonialist View of the World is Out of Step with Mainstream U.S. Opinion.
Obama's Harsh Views On America Contradict His Rhetoric.  [Scroll down]  The story of Barack Obama, however, is not just the story of how one man came to be the way he is.  It is a much larger story about how millions of Americans came to vote for, and some to idolize, a man whose fundamental beliefs and values are so different from their own.

The Most Divisive Campaign in American History.  In 2012, Obama can no longer run as a reformer or an optimist.  The coalition that he committed to last year is a coalition of those who are unhappy with America, not in the last four years, but in the last two-hundred years.  Its core is composed of groups that fear democracy and distrust the will of the people.  There is no optimism here, but a deeply rooted pessimism about human nature and the country as a whole.  It is the Democratic Party's coalition against democracy.

Our President is No Patriot.  On this Fourth of July, we should remember just how little President Barack Obama cares for America.  He does not believe the United States is an exceptional nation in any unique sense.  He refused to wear a flag pin as a gesture of dissent from national pride.  He worshipped at a church that damns the country, and neither he nor his wife were proud of America until fellow Democrats elevated them to the top of the political heap.

Why Obama Could Be a Communist Mole:  [Scroll down]  I see no reason to believe that Obama has any feeling for America, its traditions, or its Constitution beyond sheer lip service.  Nearly everything in his past and in the present points otherwise.  Obama's willful conduct domestically and in terms of foreign affairs point to the programmatic unraveling of the strictures of the U.S. Constitution.  His concessionary and disadvantageous actions towards China and Russia in particular are very troubling to say the least.

Obama's Patriotism.  [Scroll down]  From Michelle Obama's pronouncement that she was never proud of her country until her husband won the nomination to Obama's declaration that America is no more exceptional than any other country in the world, a sense of pride in being an American is missing from the White House these days.  A man who is proud to be an American would not traverse the globe apologizing for America's transgressions.  A leader with love of country would not announce his intent to "fundamentally transform" America rather than pursue an agenda of furthering the good the country has brought to the world.

Obama Forgets Anniversary.  Thursday [6/21/2012] marked the 224th anniversary of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution with no word out of the White House.  The White House website did not mention the anniversary in its blog or any other portion of its website.

Is Barack Obama the "Enemy from Within"?  President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim!  There, I said it.  Now I will back it up with the facts to prove it.  This can no longer be a matter of conjecture.  There simply is too much evidence.  On the surface, to be candid, it would not be a big deal that he was a Muslim, if he loved America and her allies.  But the evidence shows otherwise.  Barack Obama, in my opinion, is an enemy of not just our state, but half (or more) of the world.  To make matters worse, he's using America's might to further his Anti-Colonialism beliefs.

Who Is Barack Obama?  [In Dreams from My Father] he presents a warts-only history of the U.S., a story of evil and suffering.  U.S. society is a "racial caste system" where "color and money" determine where you end up in life.  He tells us of white children's stoning black children, Jim Crow, and heatless Harlem housing projects.  He describes "Japanese families interned behind barbed wire; young Russian Jews cutting patterns in Lower East Side sweatshops; dust-bowl farmers loading up their trucks with the remains of shattered lives."  Obama says the Hawaiian islands, where he grew up, are beautiful, but quickly reminds us that behind the beauty lurks the "ugly conquest of the native Hawaiians ... crippling disease brought by missionaries ... the indenturing system that kept Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino immigrants stooped sunup to sunset in [the fields]."

Obama the Reactionary.  [Scroll down]  But Obama is not an amateur at all:  He is a professional "community organizer," which used to be called a "communist organizer" back when newspapers still told the truth.  Obama is not acting out of character.  He's not even particularly incompetent.  He's just not interested in being President of the United States, if that means protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States.  Obama treats the US Constitution with unconcealed contempt, as he has shown the country time and time again.  That's why the Supremes may be getting ready to show him some spine.

Obama's 'Favorite Professor': Poor and Minorities Receive 'Little Benefit' from America.  "I had a wonderful political science class," Obama told YouTube's Steve Grove on January 27, 2011.  "It sparked my general interest in politics.  And he still teaches there and was just a wonderful, wonderful professor."  That professor was Roger Boesche.  Obama took two classes from Boesche — one on Nietzsche, the other on American history — and they apparently left quite an impression.  But Obama's "wonderful professor" had some rather odious views about the United States military, which contemporaneous accounts in the student newspaper of Occidental confirm.

Obama Stalls U.S. Energy Independence, Enemies Smile.  Do America's enemies wish us well?  It's an important question because they've made a big push to halt U.S. energy production.  So why does the Obama administration's policies support their aims?

"If I Wanted America to Fail": Internet Video Sensation.  The video has become an Internet phenomena [sic] with over one million views in just five days, and there have been numerous requests for its publication as a guest column.

Is Barack Obama's Anti-white, Anti-American Bias Inherited?  In order to understand Barack Obama's motivation when it comes to national defense, jobs, deficits, taxes the economy, and American culture in general, one must accept the following fact:  ["]Barack Obama holds a deep, personal resentment against those Americans who have the audacity to succeed and prosper.["]  It would be wrong to blatantly accuse the president of using an anti-white bias when making economic decisions.  It is mere coincidence, you see, that he always targets the so-called rich whom also just happen to be mostly Caucasian.

Impeachment-Ready Obama Surrenders American Military to U.N..  [Scroll down]  Americans may remember that under Obama's orders the FBI recently removed every mention of Muslim terrorism from its training materials.  This is all part of the plan of submission to the greater power of the United Nations with the support of Muslims worldwide.  And Americans would do well to finally open their eyes to a reality that will not change unless they decide to defend their country and their defenseless men in the military, at the mercy of the wrong leadership whose now obvious allegiance is not to watch over American interests.  So far, every measure taken by Obama and his entire administration has been nefarious for our country.

Obama's legacy: Failure.  For a self-professed constitutional scholar, the unraveling of Obamacare shows President Obama has contempt for that document which is the foundation of the American government.

What Happened to Preserve, Protect, and Defend?  Obama has done what no guardian of America would do:  systematically tear down the most vital of America's defenses, all while America's enemies wait with bated breath for the nation that owes trillions in debt to be left standing defenseless.  What happens when America lays down its arms?  It seems Obama would like to find out.

Carney Asked if 'Saul Alinsky Portrait' Is Hanging in the White House.  During a White House press briefing on Monday [3/19/2012], Fox News' Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Jay Carney if the White House displays a portrait of Saul Alinsky for its staff to look up to.  Carney's answer was less than direct, and would seem to hint that there just might be something to the Alinsky portrait rumors.

A Man for all Treasons and the US Constitution.  By treason I mean attitudes, motives, speech and/or activities that are not simply un-American, but are squarely anti-American in intent and effect.  Within the past few years we have seen economic treason, judicial treason, and political treason to name just a few.  The great number of treasonous activities presently going on in this country precludes me from making an in-depth analysis, but I will attempt something of an overview.

Obama versus the Democrats.  Obama wanted to play president, not be president.  And the real Barack Obama is anything but a confident, competent winner.  Some of those who did not support Obama tried to sound the warning bell about Obama's severe lack of... well, everything necessary for a president to succeed.  Obama lacked experience, and he continues to lack character, integrity, and a love of the America that has taken over 200 years to build.

Removing the Keystone (Pipeline).  The Keystone XL pipeline's demise tosses another shovel full of dirt onto the lid of this country's coffin.  Keystone's termination was not just a kickback to the urban dwelling, loony-left environmental voters, though that was a nice bonus.  The demise was also not just a payoff to Warren Buffet's rail companies that currently ferry unrefined North Dakota oil, though that too was an added benefit.  No, killing Keystone XL forwards two radical anti-American agendas deeply coveted by the hard-leftists occupying the White House.

Obama and the End of American Exceptionalism.  Barack Obama and his regime have accomplished much of what they set out to do — namely, the transformation of American society and an end to the pre-eminent status of the United States.  They have had a singleness of purpose and allegiance first and foremost to a confused and muddled ideology and not country.  When the leadership of a great nation exhibits this trait, the consequences can be catastrophic.  The product of a lifetime of leftist indoctrination, Barack Obama has, as the basic foundation of his disorganized and uncertain belief system, a conviction that the United States has been the epitome of oppression and arrogance throughout its history.

American Exceptionalism Under Assault.  In this election cycle, one noticeable phenomenon is how the Republican presidential candidates are emphasizing our country's founding principles — liberty and freedom — more than in any campaign in the modern political era.  Each speaks often of the Declaration of Independence.  Citing articles of the Constitution is commonplace.  The president's record of evoking such themes stands in stark contrast.  In his State of the Union address, for example, our president made only one perfunctory reference to the Constitution and then went on to misquote it.

The Real Obama.  The truth is not hidden.  One merely has to digest the new budget Obama unveiled last week, his budget last year, and his four major speeches since last April, and the real Obama comes into focus.  He turns out to be a left-wing progressive who rejects many of the mainstream political and economic ideas of post-World War II America.

US Government Is Financing Our Foreign Competition.  Here's a a question:  If tax dollars were being used to make prices cheaper for companies overseas while simultaneously forbidding American companies from enjoying the same luxury — would that be fair?

We Dare Call It Treason.  Obama-Soetoro has made it clear from the outset that he hates America and its constitution, capitalism, white people, and Christians.  He made a point of publicly insulting our long-time allies like Britain and Israel, and of bowing to the Muslim Saudi king and the Head Red of China.  What has he done — ever — to contradict the notion that he believes America needs to be punished for her greatness, which he sees as having been achieved by criminal exploitation of "people of color"?

Obama's Assault on America's Prestige.  History is filled with examples of how costly it is for a nation to allow its prestige to be damaged, thus weakening its power and inviting aggression.

End of the Constitution: Obamacare birth-control mandate would defeat the First Amendment.  Mr. Obama is not simply an inept, liberal president in the mold of Jimmy Carter.  He is an ideological revolutionary who seeks to sweep away traditional America.

The Real Contraception Question:  As it is, Mr. Obama seems intent on slowing America's population growth.  Does he want us to be like, say, Japan...?

Obama's Vision for a Spartan America.  What Obama is saying, quite plainly, is that America would be better off if it wasn't America any longer.  He's making the case not for American exceptionalism, but Spartan exceptionalism.  It's far worse than anything George W. Bush, the supposed warmonger, ever said.

Gingrich And The Battle For American Exceptionalism.  Alinsky, the far-left father of modern community organizing, is not a name you'll see falling from the lips of the liberal media elites. ... Few paid much attention when candidate Barack Obama told a rally shortly before the 2008 election that he was five days away from fundamentally transforming America.  That was Alinsky's goal, too, and Obama would become the disciple and instrument of Alinsky-inspired policies that would put a foreclosure sign in front of Ronald Reagan's shining city on a hill.

Obama chooses American decline.  Which nation will be the world's leading superpower a few decades from now?  I fervently hope it is the United States, and I have great faith in American ingenuity.  But the Obama administration's rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline is a reminder of why our No. 1 position is in jeopardy.

Obama Proposes Crippling Cuts To U.S. Military.  How can we propose massive cuts in the number of uniformed military when we are paying for NPR?  How can he cut the Marine Corps by 10% when he won't cut the Department of Energy or the Department of Education?  Answer:  This is Obama's strategy for the world, rooted in a deep, profound suspicion of American exceptionalism and American military power.

Our Trojan Horse president.  I was thinking about writing a novel about what might happen if a man who hates America and wants to bring it down is somehow elected president.  What would he do? ... First, the Trojan Horse president would initiate unprecedented spending, driving the debt up by more than $4 trillion just in the first three years.  Much of the money would go into the pockets of political supporters and people who donate heavily to his campaigns.  He would ram through an unreadable law allowing the federal government to seize the health care system, which would transform citizens into beholden subjects.

The Past and the Present.  This is not just another election and Barack Obama is not just another president whose policies we may not like.  With all of President Obama's broken promises, glib demagoguery and cynical political moves, one promise he has kept all too well.  That was his boast on the eve of the 2008 election:  "We are going to change the United States of America."  Many Americans are already saying that they can hardly recognize the country they grew up in.

The destroyer of the American Nation.  From the beginning of his Administration, Obama has had one primary goal:  the willful and deliberate destruction of the American nation as it was founded.  Sounds incredible?  When one considers his words and actions, it is the only conclusion one can reach.

Barack Obama's America, In His Own Words.  Sometimes in unguarded moments the Obamas have said revealing things that later needed to be explained away — the president's "bitter clingers" remark and Mrs. Obama's being proud of her country "for the first time in my adult life" spring to mind.  The president seems to be making more of these bloopers as the pressure of running for re-election on his record gets to him.

Obama's Car Trouble:  The Fiat 500 is more evidence that — like Solyndra and windmills — Obama's fascination with Europe has little to do with facts and everything to do with ideology.  Obama is determined to convert Americans to the Green Church, but they aren't buying.

Obama's growing disdain for American worker.  Our president now travels around the world to pronounce the end of the American era, kowtow to foreign leaders by saying the U.S. is no longer the singular force in the world, and essentially disrespect everything that has made this great country so great.  While the Nobel Prize winner courts the world, looking for lost love, he holds a special disdain for the working American.  Now, mind you, this from a guy who has never held down a real job:  from community organizer to Illinois state senator to U.S. senator to president, taxpayers have been paying his salary since the mid-1990s.  In the past three months, his real feelings about the state of the U.S. economy have come out and, more important, just who's to blame for it.  You won't be surprised:  It's YOU.

Obama's Denigrate America tour.  President Obama regularly expresses his contempt for America. ... Mr. Obama is a typical liberal.  He believes America is fundamentally flawed, wicked and in irreversible decline.  Like most on the radical left, he has been profoundly disappointed by America, especially over the past several decades.

Obama's dark vision of America.  America, in the view of President Barack Obama, is not a happy place.  It is a dark region where people cheat each other; corporations brutalize the public, and opportunity is out of reach.  Obama's relentless reelection focus on America's demons is a communications error that could haunt his bid for a second term.

Who is This Man, Barack Obama?  There is something strangely wrong with Barack Obama.  I think most of us know it.  I think most of us can see it when he speaks about America.  I'm sure most of us have seen and heard him in speeches and interviews.  He displays brilliant speaking skills on almost every subject until he comes to talking about America and her goodness.  Almost suddenly there is strangeness to his manner, unease when he talks about America.  He appears uncomfortable and awkward.  It's as if he is being forced to read something he doesn't really feel or believe.  It reminds me of the scenes on TV news programs of American POW's in Vietnam, or even Iraq, being forced to read, for public perception, how good things were in captivity.

Krauthammer rips Obama's 'ill-concealed contempt' for Americans: 'It's unseemly'.  According to [Dr. Charles] Krauthammer, Obama is willing to point out everyone's shortcomings except his own.  "No one is asking him to go out there and to be a jingoistic cheerleader," Krauthammer said.  "But when you call your own country 'lazy' when you are abroad, and call it 'unambitious and soft' when you are home, I think what you are showing is not tough love, but ill-conceived, ill-concealed contempt."

A Country Unworthy Of Its President.  At a business forum Saturday, President Obama complained that "we've been a little bit lazy over the last couple of decades."  He apparently meant we've let foreign investment go slack, since "we aren't out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new business into America."  But this is just the latest slur against the United States uttered by its leader.

President blames America while running economy into the ground.  President Obama is overseas on a nine-day Blame America First tour.  He's ostensibly spending time on the other side of the Pacific to explore ways the United States can work better with Asian economies.  Instead, he's using his time in the spotlight to criticize the nation he's supposed to be leading.

The Player and the President.  [Scroll down]  During the nationally broadcast 9/11 ceremony from New York, President Obama stood there in a Bill Clinton pose — his nose perched high in the air — seemingly unmoved even as others wept and bowed their heads in prayer.  It was a troubling and incongruous posture for the leader of a nation commemorating the worst terrorist attack in American history. ... He stood through most of the ceremony gazing off into the blue, as if he were some kind of grandee above it all.

The War is On.  Just as America has failed to acknowledge that we are at war with radical Islam, too many conservatives have failed to come to grips with the fact that we are at war here at home with the Marxism of Barack Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus and labor unions.  It has nothing to do with race — at least not for conservatives — and everything to do with ideology and power.  Obama has declared war on the traditions of the United States of America.  In his most revealing, unguarded moments he tells us who he really is.

The Anti-American President.  Liberty-minded folk have several reasons why we assume another person is incompetent rather than malicious.  One reason is our belief that a person is "innocent until proven guilty"; another is the natural presumption others are similar to ourselves. ... As long as there is any possibility that Obama is just in over his head and doesn't mean what he says and does, many will excuse him on those grounds.  Every American must judge Obama and his ideas and understand he does mean what he says, and realize there is no excuse, save one — Barack Obama is an anti-American in thought and deed.

Obama is a Calculating, Not Stupid Individual.  Barack Hussein Obama is not stupid.  He knows exactly what he is doing.  He is bent on the erosion of American values and, so far, he is winning.

The Silence that Shatters America.  Why do decent, rational, American-loving people let Obama get away with saying he will "fundamentally transform America"?  The first time he arrogantly uttered these words, the response should have been:  "It should go without saying that no one, not even a president or a king will ever be allowed to fundamentally transform America."

Barack Hussein Obama is a Fraud.  Obama is a fraud on the people of this country for at least two very important reasons.  First, he presents himself as a person who loves America, which I believe he does not.  He wants to do away with our American traditions, lead us into socialism, and do away with our basic constitutional rights.  Secondly, he presents himself as a Christian, but he undermines Christianity.  Obama falsely presents himself as a person who loves America.  The evidence is to the contrary. ... Barack Hussein Obama does not love America and he has no respect for our Constitution.

Who's the worst president in American history?
A growing bipartisan consensus on Obama.  For more than 30 years, a wounded Jimmy Carter has roamed the world speaking ill of whomever the sitting president might be and occasionally making it difficult for that president to make policy.  Mr. Obama already has surpassed him, speaking ill of America as a whole while being president.

Playing the Obama Death-to-the-USA Game.  Are you as exhausted as am I from hearing 'journalists' and supposed expert talking heads telling us "If only Obama would 'X' (you fill in your own solution) he would put us back on the right track toward beginning to save our economy" or asking "Why doesn't Obama do 'Y' to help the economy?"  The problem with these comments and questions is the presupposition that the dictator-in-chief actually wants to save the United States of America.  That assumption is false.

President Obama Is No Longer Tethered To Reality.  President Barack Obama's speech to the nation Monday night [7/25/2011] was highly disturbing.  Because read carefully, it reveals a president wildly divorced from the fundamental realities of the nation he is supposed to be leading.  President Obama actually told America on national television that it is a nation "with a system in which the deck seems stacked against middle class Americans in favor of the wealthiest few."  It is incomprehensible how a man serving as president of these United States could make such a fundamentally false assertion about his own country.

Obama's culture of death.  Mr. Obama is a Leninist — a committed revolutionary, who is embarked upon an ambitious project to transform America.  He worships statism and secularism — the very antithesis of our Founding Fathers.  He has put the United States on the path of civilizational decline and moral ruin.

The Un-American American President.  Barack Obama does not sound like an American because Obama's heart and soul are not American in nature.  His thoughts are not American.  His attitude and philosophy are not American.  He cannot speak from the heart about America because America does not reside there.  With a Muslim upbringing, a radical family, radical mentor, a myriad of radical connections, radical advisors, a radical theology, and some say a radical spouse, it's no wonder.  Obama's agenda is informed by Marx and guided by years of close associations with extreme individuals and groups whose stated goals are the demise of America and America's influence in the world.  When he says he wants to "fundamentally transform America," he is dead serious.

Feeling depressed?  I have been a keen student of American history and politics for well over 50 years and I have never seen the country in such poor shape or been this discouraged.  President Obama is to blame for this.  In trying to fundamentally change America and remake it in his own image he has, among other things, ruined the economy, flouted and ignored the rule of law (especially as it pertains to him and the office of President), allowed an Islamic fifth column to take root which wants to change our way of life and make America into a country ruled by Islam, practiced politics of sleaze and division, failed to defend our civil liberties and basic values and run roughshod over our institutions, denigrated us on the world stage, turned us into an international laughingstock...

Obama and the End of Western Civilization.  Barack Obama assumed the office of the presidency as a man brought up and steeped in 1960's radicalism, which advanced the doctrine that America, as the lone Western superpower, represented the evil nature of colonialism and capitalism's exploitation of the masses — whether there was any truth in this assertion or that the United States was guilty of these sins was irrelevant.  The material and military success of America and the West could only have come about from expropriating the wealth and labor of the peoples of the world. ... Barack Obama has spent his entire life, from birth to the present, marinated in this mindset.  He is thus incapable of change or being receptive to any other viewpoint, as that would be an admission of failure.

Happy Dependence Day.  Mr. Obama's vision of relegating free citizens to serf status under an all-powerful government is un-American at its core.  He has sold this dangerous doctrine via prolific lies, distortions and class envy.  But socialist economics always fails because it violates human nature.  Obamanomics is no exception.

Why Obama is Just Not That Into You.  Obama's arrogance has been crystal clear from the start.  He sneered at Hillary Clinton during a debate:  "You're likable enough."  Obama then demonstrated the class of a l3-year-old by using his middle finger to gesture about Hillary, menacingly.  President Obama has alienated our traditional allies through his cockiness and disrespect. ... But it's not just our traditional allies that Obama treats reprehensibly.  He dislikes most of the American people and our culture, a fact that was apparent early on.

Evidently Obama especially hates Texas.
Texas Takes Biggest Hit on Federal Anti-Terrorism Funding Cuts.  More than 30 smaller and mid-sized U.S. cities are losing about $170 million in federal anti-terrorism funding that began after the Sept. 11 attacks, perplexing some local officials at a time when information gleaned from Osama bin Laden's hideout suggests al-Qaida is being encouraged to attack smaller targets.

The Obama administration has an anti-Texas bias.  The Obama administration has a bias against the state creating the most jobs in America, retiring Texas Republican Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison explained on MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown" Friday [6/10/2011].  "I see a bias in this administration against Texas," Hutchison said, explaining how some of Texas' anti-government attitude has made it more difficult to get the administration to pay attention to the Lone Star state's needs.

Obama Seems Incapable of Loving America. [Scroll down]  Every once in a while, as he did in that speech in 2008, Obama shows us who he really is and what he really believes — if we are listening.  Such a moment of startling honesty came recently when Obama delivered what the mainstream media laughingly described as a "response" to Rep. Paul Ryan's common sense budget.  What the speech really amounted to, of course, was simply a tired partisan kick-off of his 2012 re-election campaign.  In it, Obama again stated his contempt for the nation that has given him so much.

Obama missing: National Police Week.  Sunday, May 15 is the 30th annual Peace Officers Memorial Service.  Law enforcement from all over the country gathered in Washington for National Police Week to honor fallen comrades-in-arms.  Too bad President Obama couldn't be there.  Despite being invited to speak to the widows, children and friends of the 165 officers recognized this year as killed in the line of duty, he somehow didn't think it was important to trek the two miles from the White House to the Capitol Building to participate.  Perhaps it's because Mr. Obama historically has had a conflicted relationship with law enforcement.

The Editor asks...
Why does Mr. Obama hate cops?  Does Barack Obama (a/k/a Barry Soetoro) have an arrest record?  That's one of many aspects of Obama's past that nobody knows.

Restoring America's Standing.  "I think that we've restored America's standing in the world."  [ —Barack Obama, November 18, 2009]  Was this the simply the usual prevarication of a President with a massive ego, or something he truly believed?  In any event, the panorama of the world today is far different as America is increasingly finding itself isolated, vilified, and ignored as never before in its recent history.  The heady days of "hope and change" have given way to cynicism and mockery within the international community.

Obama Versus the Constitution:  Obama acts like a Third World socialist, like his Kenyan father, and his thinking is stunningly rigid.  He seems to be woefully ignorant about basic economics, science, and technology, international affairs, and the conventions of American politics.  Either that, or he is acting that way as part of his peculiar character disorder.  Deliberately violating norms is a way to show contempt for "middleclassness," as Jerry Wright calls it.  It's the bourgeois values that Karl Marx hated so much.  In psychiatry, deliberate lifelong violations of accepted rules are a sign of "oppositional-defiant personality," closely allied with grandiose narcissism.  That describes Obama's lifelong character.

Wherever Obama was born, his politics are foreign.  When George Bush graciously turned over the White House keys to the mysterious man with the mysterious background, few realized he was handing America's top secrets to the enemies from within.  But given the swiftness with which Obama began implementing his collectivist, anti-America agenda, it didn't take long for millions of voters to wake up.  Sadly, however, many more millions still choose to ignore his anti-American words and actions and write off those who oppose him as racists or right-wing radicals.

Obama squanders America's legacy.  Even Mr. Obama's most humble predecessors did not apologize for the great country they led.  They did not bow before dictators and beg forgiveness for America's excesses, which are but a small price to pay for actual and untidy freedom.  And they certainly were not embarrassed by the unequaled strength of our military power.

GOP 2012 theme: American 'decline'.  Republican activists in this key presidential state have a dark, foreboding feeling that America is in decline.  They believe the nation is hurtling in the wrong direction and, worse, on the brink of losing its unique place in the world.  That sentiment is hardly new to American politics, but it's one that's been reanimated by the presidency of Barack Obama.  Some see him as hostile to the notion of American exceptionalism.  Others simply don't believe he's an American at all.

'Common' Nonsense.  Obama officials claimed they had never heard of Joanne Chesimard (who renamed herself Assata Shakur), a woman Common celebrated in "song." ... In November 1979, she escaped from prison and made her way to her revolutionary paradise in Cuba.  Since May 2, 2005, the FBI has classified her as a "domestic terrorist" and offered a $1 million reward for assistance in her capture.  Her "revolutionary" actions are now being celebrated at the Obama White House.

Obama's "Common" Associations.  While Michelle Obama may have only recently found a reason to be proud of her country, she has long been proud of rapper Common.  Mrs. Obama and her husband do not want to celebrate the National Day of Prayer in the White House, and the latter "forgot" to do a Presidential Proclamation on Easter — but having Common in the White House is a priority.  This president — and apparently his wife, as well — does not understand or relate to the views of average Americans.  Most of us read Common's lyrics and cannot fathom why the president would allow this person to be feted in the People's House.

Despite outrage, Common performs at the White House.  Rapper and poet Common may have incited controversy this week when the White House invited him to perform at a poetry event.  After all, he has rapped about shooting police and has written lyrics calling for the "burn[ing] of former President George W. Bush."  But Common kept things pretty tame when he took the stage in the East Room at Wednesday night's "Evening of Poetry" along with other musicians, poets and artists.

Obama Consistently Anti-American.  Well, you have to hand it to Obama, he is consistent in his extreme anti-Americanism. ... Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  He specifically invited Brotherhood representatives to attend his speech to the Islamic world in Cairo in June 2009, and during the uprising against Mubarak signaled that he would have no problem with their having a place in Egypt's new government.  He has backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.  He backed the brutal mullahcracy in Iran during the Iranian people's bloody march for freedom.  He has backed Hezb'Allah in Lebanon.  He has backed Islamic law at the UN, having the U.S. co-sponsor with Egypt in summer 2009 a resolution on the restriction of free speech regarding Islam.  And now he is essentially backing Al-Qaeda in Libya.

Obama's Not Lincoln; He's Stephen Douglas.  The flagrant enemy of any enduring peace in America is unmistakably the Obama Nation's campaign to "fundamentally transform the United States of America." ... It has resulted in Barack Obama's "community organizing" and the "collective bargaining" of his philosophy and that of his New World Order Union Bosses.  Such "Dreams From My Father" as President Obama carries in his vision of the future, are Marxist.  They are the exact opposite of what America, at her best, has always stood for.

Combat troops to get gay sensitivity training.  American combat troops will get sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the military's new policy on gays instead of waiting until they return to home base in the United States, the senior enlisted man in Afghanistan said Thursday [2/24/2011].  The Pentagon is launching an extensive force-wide program to ease the process of integrating open homosexuals into the ranks, including into close-knit fighting units.

We're In Denial, America, About Our President.  One of these messages is that the Obamas are profoundly ambivalent about whether America and Americans have historically been a force for good or ill in the world.  This is why the president has repeatedly apologized for America's behavior, in a way that not only signals other nations that our leader is at best uncertain about our moral character, but may plant self-doubt about our decency in own population.

The Post-American Presidency.  As president, Obama is presiding over America's decline, and is in many important ways the apostle of that decline.  He is betraying Israel; warring against free speech; refusing to take real steps to stop Iran's nuclear program, despite the many genocidal statements Ahmadinejad has made against Israel, and the open contempt the mullahs have shown for his efforts to reach out to them.  Obama is turning allies into enemies and enemies into allies; submitting the U.S. to international law; bankrupting us with socialist schemes both domestically and internationally; bypassing the democratic process and the system of checks and balances by governing through a proliferation of "czars"; and using global warming as a pretext to redistribute wealth from the First World to the Third World.

How could an American president be so anti-American?  [President Obama's] record has been so blatantly in contrast to the will of this nation, that it could very nearly be defined as anti-American.

Obama vs. America.  President Obama's statements regarding the proposed Ground Zero mosque are the latest in a series of indicators that we are at a very peculiar pass:  We have a president who doesn't get America.  For the first time in history we have a president whose default setting is in opposition to the general sensibilities of the American people.  His behavior too frequently suggests that he's playing a cosmic joke on Americans' essential decency, considered patriotism, and belief in American exceptionalism.

More about the proposed Ground Zero mosque.

Detailing Obama's Endless Radicalism.  Presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama promised a post-partisan, post-racial presidency if elected.  What voters got was a third type of "post," one for which they clearly didn't bargain.  The Post-American Presidency by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer argues that Obama's every move bespeaks a call to internationalism at the expense of his own country.

Hiroshima, Obama, and Truman.  Today's ceremony commemorating the 65th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima had something new:  the presence of the U.S. ambassador to Japan.  Never before had America sent an official participant in the annual memorial to those killed in the world's first atomic attack.  That this should occur during the administration of Barack Obama is no surprise.  No previous American president has been at such pains to apologize for what he thinks are America's sins.  So while, thankfully, Ambassador John Roos did not speak at the Hiroshima event, the import of his presence there was undeniable.

The World Apology Tour Revisited.  Over the last couple of weeks several Japanese newspapers have been all over a new Wikileak that so far has not made much of an impression anywhere in American media.  (I know:  This is a surprise?)  It seems that Obama wanted to include stops at Hiroshima and Nagasaki as part of his 2009 World Apology Tour, so that he could apologize for Harry Truman dropping the Big One to end World War II.  One problem for The One:  Japan was not amused by this idea.

The first presidential press conference with the American flag nowhere in sight.  Did anybody notice at President Obama's Press Conference on the Deep Water Horizon disaster than something was missing in the background?  I noticed something didn't look right and then it hit me.  The American Flags was missing behind.  Why?  Behind him was just yellow curtains, and a couple of gold columns with chandeliers.

President Obama First U.S. President to Hold Press Conference With No U.S. Flags.  I am trying to be patient, I am trying not to jump to conclusions, but there seems to be an anti-American President in the office of the President of United States.

Obama Courts Latino Votes at Arizona's Expense.  Every time the President speaks, makes another appointment, or ramrods a new bill through the democratically controlled congress, he reinforces what millions of Americans now feel; this President does not love America. ... In better times America held oaths of office in higher regard than political ambition.  President Obama, who seems to be on in an unending campaign tour, would let his political ambitions take precedence over any oath known.  If, as we think, he is opposing S.B. 1070 with an eye to amnesty and full appeasement of the Latino voting bloc for his re-election bid in 2012 then we are once again forced to conclude the worst.

Justice Loses Its Stars and Stripes.  What's black and white and "red" all over?  The Department of Justice's newly designed website.  Gone are the standard red, white, and blue motifs, replaced by an all-black backdrop.  And prominently placed on virtually every page of the site is a quote credited to a man who facilitated a greater role for socialists and communists at the U.N., and the global "workers rights movement."

Obama's Lawlessness on Immigration.  It is becoming increasingly clear that, when it comes to illegal immigration, the Obama Administration has a disturbingly cavalier approach to what the law requires.  Three recent examples illustrate his disdain for the plain meaning of the law.

The Back Nine.  [Scroll down]  Away from the greens, Obama has devised the reconstruction of a society that somehow managed to progress for nearly 233 years prior to his occupation of the Oval Office.  Fortunately, the American people have been unwilling to support his "new foundation" as it will effectively destroy the "American Dream", and the nation's future generations will be relegated to a standard of living beneath that of which their predecessors have been blessed to live.

Apologizing for Obama's Serial Apologies.  The next president will have to embark once again on a worldwide "reset" campaign, apologizing to America's allies for the shabby treatment meted out to them by Obama.

Treason Season at the State Department.  The Obama administration appears to be unable to distinguish between the reasonable Arizona immigration law and the acts of merciless dictators in China.  It's a vivid illustration of Obama's 'Blame America First' policy.

Hmmm...  Who is in charge of the State Department?

Obama:  America is a Superpower 'Whether We Like It or Not'.  In a little-noticed remark at the close of the two-day nuclear security summit in Washington, D.C., this week, President Obama suggested the United States was somehow burdened by its military might.

That Ain't Hay, It's The USA.  I gave a speech for the Goldwater Institute in Tucson a few weeks back, and several people came up from the border to see me.  Like many letter writers I've heard from since, they told tales of living in remote properties where every night illegals cross their land.  They lie awake at night frightened for their children and listening for footsteps in the yard.  In effect, the sovereignty of the United States of America no longer applies in this territory — and John Morton and the Department of Homeland Security are entirely cool with that.

Inside the Obama Doctrine for American decline.  At the end of the recent nuclear summit, Obama spoke of nuclear proliferation and the Middle East, saying, "It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because, whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.  And when conflicts break out, one way or another, we get pulled into them."  The Obama Doctrine seeks to avoid the burden of the latter by reducing America from the former.

Obama's Unexceptional Nation.  America has had presidents who were realists and idealists and realistic, even cynical, about the world yet idealistic about America's mission in the world, but Barack Obama is unique among this fraternity.  For arguably the first time in 220 years, we have a president who is idealistic about the world but cynical about America's role in it.  Obama's recent flurry of nuclear diplomacy and declarations is just the latest example.

Should Obama Be Impeached?  Obama is purposely undermining the US Constitution.  In doing so, his actions make unstable every institution and office below the presidency, since the Constitution is the foundation of every government power and official decision.

Barack Hussein Obama and Indonesia:  there's no place like home.  Obama is the first US president who was raised without cultural or emotional or intellectual ties to either Britain or Europe.  The British and the Europeans have been so enchanted with 'America's first black president' that they haven't been able to see what he really is:  America's first Third World president. ... His vision is for the US to abandon its Constitution and its laws, which are tied to Britain, the country for which he has shown such disdain.

Newt Hits Nail on Head.  "But what I find distressing is that this Administration is opposed to looking for oil offshore, but the President bows to the Saudi King, the president is friends with Venezuela whose biggest impact on us is that they sell us a lot of oil, and I just think that there is a shallowness about how they analyze things."

Obama and Kagan are Memorial Day MIAs.  The White House casually announced that President Obama will stop by a veterans cemetery in Chicago, but that really isn't Arlington National Cemetery, a symbol recognized worldwide of America's ever-vigilant fight against tyranny and for liberty.  Perhaps we should be thankful that Obama isn't merely driving by the cemetery and tossing a wreath out of his limousine window given his track record of snubbing the military.

Is President Obama At War With America?  [Scroll down slowly]  Yet at the epicenter of all of this — all the bribes, manipulations, and heavy-handed mandates — is the narrow, political self-interest of one man:  Barack Obama.  America's cultural "right" decries the loss of freedom and the rise of abusive government, while the "left" decries a government that lines the pockets of for-profit corporations (companies that are presumed to be "greedy"), all for the benefit of one self-serving politician.  This is the assault on America's foundational principals and values.  It is the assault of governmental cronyism, on our basic understandings of what is right, and fair.

Tomorrow never dies!  Demagogues throughout the ages have left darkness where there was light.  But even they had characteristics that drove them in their wickedness.  All that's driving Obama is a hatred for his own country, not a trait guaranteed to find success.

Pulling the Plug on the "Living" Constitution.  Barack Obama has long seen the U.S. Constitution as an obstacle to what he considers progress.  In a 2001 interview that surfaced during the presidential campaign, he made this very clear:  the Supreme Court under Justice Earl Warren had failed to break "free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution," Obama mused on a radio show. ... The founders had set up a form of government to protect liberty; he clearly wished they had formed a government to enact equality.

Nanny state will turn U.S. into Europe.  Throughout the health care battle, President Barack Obama asked, if European nations can deliver expansive universal health care to every citizen, why can't the United States do the same.  The president, an ardent Europhile, poses that question about everything from high-speed rail to cheap college tuition.  The answer is that we can — if we're willing to live a European lifestyle.

The Obama Administration Won't Fly the Stars and Stripes in Haiti.  There are things about this country not to be proud about right now.  But they are happening in Congress.  We should all be proud of the Americans in Haiti, and they should be proud to be Americans in Haiti.

Haiting America.  If Fidel Castro or anyone else did a tenth as much good as the U.S. does abroad, you can bet they'd take credit for it.  Strangely, however, the U.S. doesn't.  It aids Haiti, but refuses to fly the American flag.

Obama Chooses Christmas Eve as Night of Darkness For Free World.  The elephant in our living room is what moseyed in when the mainstream media took a holiday and the mask of President Barack Obama began to crack.  How long have we known in our hearts that Obama is not an American?  How long have we known that even though he professes to be one, Obama is not a Christian, nor even a Christian sympathizer and that his actions over the last year prove he is not a benevolent president.  Obama wants a healthcare bill that is signed, sealed and delivered on Christmas Eve.  Obama wants to ruin America and the Free Enterprise system that made America what it is.

The Man Who Despises America.  Barack Obama despises America.  When people who voted for Obama in 2008 — including registered Democrats — start speaking in normal conversational voices at dinner parties, neighborhood gatherings and PTA meetings that the over-inflated ego from Chicago has it "in for America," then it's clear most reasonable people have reached the same conclusion.  The central conviction of Obama's ideology is that America is guilty of limitless moral failures and is the chief architect of the world's ills.  Obama has boundless enmity for America, its key institutions, and its longtime allies.

Obama the Red Avenger.  Obama's early life indicates that young Barry may have been brought up as a Red Avenger against America.  We know that he talks like an anti-capitalist and an anti-Constitutionalist, and that he compulsively apologizes for American actions during the Cold War.  The Cold War was not something we started — it was started by Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and other totalitarian mass murderers long before the Korean War and the Vietnam War, our two hot proxies in the Cold War.  What we haven't understood is how deeply Obama was indoctrinated from childhood onward in the war against America.

Obama the America denier.  Most people involved in public affairs fall into two grand schools:  Some believe that America is a unique nation, a nation built upon extraordinary and good moral values, and a country which is a microcosm of what the world should be.  These people need not be Americans.  Churchill, for example, was an unabashed admirer of America.  Other people believe that America is simply a very arrogant country, a nation inhabited with bumpkins who believe too much in God, and because of its religious faith and confidence, the antithesis of what the world should be.  This animus flourishes outside America, but it also has a strong camp following in America.  Barack Obama is decidedly in the second camp.  He is an "America Denier."

The Obama doctrine.  Mr. Obama is systematically diminishing the United States, effecting its transformation from what was once called "the world's only superpower" to a nation subordinated to the demands of international consensus, organizations, "peer competitors" and even rogue states.  We can expect to see this doctrine in full flower during the president's forays this week into Middle East peacemaking, nuclear disarmament and reordering the world economic system.

Obama's Mind Game.  The moment Obama became president, he upped the signals.  At the swearing in, the entire family eerily chose to wear black and red, colors associated with communism and black nationalism.  Obama's first radio address was broadcast in the Arab world.  Obama returned Britain's gift of a Winston Churchill statue while embracing dictators.

When Our Military is Attacked, Obama is a Nowhere Man.  During a 60 Minutes interview with Steve Croft when the stock market was sinking, Obama giggled.  He wasn't embarrassed afterwards or apologetic.  More worrisome than his bizarre behavior was that he didn't regard it as strange.  Then last week, we've faced with a national crisis, soldiers killed and gravely injured by an apparent Jihadist in the guise of a military doctor.  When announcing the catastrophe what does Obama do?  He drones on and on for three minutes about Native American health issues, even doing a shout out.  In a monotone voice, Obama reports that soldiers have been shot.  He's nonchalant, flat, as though he's reporting the weather.

Obama's Post-American World.  When thinking about what defines the Obama doctrine we might be tempted to say it's blaming America first or apologizing to the world for an unjust America.  It would be accurate to observe that Mr. Obama has done both, but those events merely undergird Obama's larger ideological goal.

Is Barack Obama Anti-American?  Just as an orange deprived of its color becomes the anti-orange, it's reasonable to state that because the overwhelming number of Barack Obama's desires and actions are antithetical to America's essence, he is in fact anti-American.  He's not merely making little changes around the edges, smoothing away rough spots, augmenting existing traits, or getting rid of a few ugly cankers.  Instead, both at home and abroad, Barack Obama is trying to destroy America's essence, that commitment to liberty that makes her unique in this world, and that makes her uniquely American.

Obama Is Average.  [Scroll down]  Look at Obama's speech at the UN General Assembly:  "No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation."  Take the first half of that sentence:  No nation can dominate another.  There is no eight year old who would say that — it's so absurd.  And the second half?  That is adolescent utopianism.  Obama talks in platitudes, but offers a vision to the world of America diminished or constrained, and willing to share leadership in a way that no other presidency and no other great power would.

Signing away sovereignty.  Americans concerned about the decline of American power under the presidency of Barack Obama should turn their radar on and keep it on.  We should be aware that Obama intends to roll out for Senate approval a series of international treaties that will further bind America to the will of the international community if they are ratified.

Obama:  A Man Apart.  When asked if the United States is exceptional, President Obama said America is exceptional and England is exceptional and Greece is exceptional.  That the United States is sui generis didn't cross his mind.

The Roots of the Obamas' Contempt.  Throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama made it obvious that he wanted to fundamentally "change" America.  It was equally clear that his wife Michelle supported him in this endeavor.  She did so time and again in 2008 by giving speeches critical of the country as it existed prior to Obama's presidential run.  What wasn't as evident, until Obama secured the presidency, was why this was so.  Why were he and Michelle so ardent in their belief that America needed "change" to begin with?  The answer is that Barack and Michelle harbor great contempt for this country and flaunt it so brazenly that they appear to be bound together by it.

Obama vs. The American Businessman.  Obama has demonized just about every business sector in America.  Through the 2008 campaign to the present, he has gone after credit card companies, the coal industry, mortgage companies, real estate companies, steelmakers, utilities, drug companies, doctors, oil companies, Wall Street, defense contractors, and health insurance companies, just to name a few.

The Michael Moore of Oslo.  The Nobel Committee chose him wisely because he does, in fact, represent the organization's highest ideals.  He is an American president queasy about the projection of American power.  He is an American president who rejects the notion of American exceptionalism.  He is an American president eagerly in pursuit of legitimacy to be granted him not by those who voted for him but by those who do not cast a vote and who chafe at American leadership.

Is Obama a Closet Conehead?  President Obama has never mentioned black liberation theologian James Cone, despite his longtime pastor Jeremiah Wright's devotion to his work. ... It is apparent that Rev. Wright considers Cone's writings pivotal in comprehending his own teachings.  If that is true, isn't it likely that, at some point during the twenty odd years he mentored Obama, Rev. Wright had suggested the young man read Cone's publications?  Don't pastors usually encourage members of their congregation to read books they consider central to understanding the faith they espouse? ... A follower of Cone's theology would consider the present American system an evil to be annihilated rather than reformed.

They Hate the American We Love.  For those who supported this president out of frustration with either John McCain or with George W. Bush, is it not obvious to you yet that Barack Obama hates America?  Those of you who thought Jeremiah Wright was an anomaly in this man's life, can you now see that this preacher of hate was just part of a long chain of negative, anti-American influences on Obama?  Rather than the Founders of this country, Barack Obama's heroes have always been terrorists, felons and anarchists.  Where most presidents revere Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, and James Madison, the father of the Constitution, this president's role models have been domestic bomber Bill Ayers and Marxist Saul Alinsky...

The Elephant in the Room:  Obama vs. United States.  Watching President Obama apologize last week for America's arrogance — before a French audience that owes its freedom to the sacrifices of Americans — helped convince me that he has a deep-seated antipathy toward American values and traditions.  His nomination of former Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh to be the State Department's top lawyer constitutes further evidence of his disdain for American values.

Pros & Czars:  In order to understand Prez O and why he surrounds himself with various kooks (known as Czars in Prez O's administration) and believes in what he does, you need to first understand that Prez O so dislikes what he sees when he looks out the Oval Office windows that he wants to make America into something it's never been and never was intended to be:  something that looks and functions more like Cuba than Texas, more like France than Wyoming.  He's a revolutionary.  Prez O does not like excellence, entrepreneurialism or capitalism...

Obama Screws Up Latin American Policy.  [Scroll down slowly]  And yet President Obama has been silent.  It isn't as if he has a strict policy against criticizing other nations.  He's been quick enough to condemn Israel for its settlement policies and Honduras for ousting Chávez wannabee Manuel Zelaya.  No, the Obama administration has kept mum because Barack Obama, schooled in leftist fairy tales from the cradle, seems to believe that what the region requires from the United States is not leadership but contrition.

Obama Regresses to Cold War Mythology ... and Switches Sides.  Why is this president always doing the opposite of what needs to be done?  Instead of supporting Iranian protesters, he snubs them.  Instead of snubbing the ousted Honduran would-be dictator, he invites him to Washington.  Instead of leading the world, he apologizes to it.  Instead of offering a new vision, he resurrects hoary clichés.  Instead of promoting liberty, he bows to kings and hugs tyrants.  Some think he acts like an enchanted prince; others think he's a spoiled brat.  But there's a method to this madness...

Regrets only.  Watching Barack Obama this past week was painful.  The new president went out of his way to apologize for America's flaws.  His groveling won rave reviews from some foreigners, the American mainstream media, and others who hold the United States in contempt.  A key component to Obama's approach was apologetically groveling.  Expressing regrets about America is something that apparently comes easily to Obama.

Why Obama Wants America to Fail:  Many think the Obama administration is incompetent, and surely they've proved this, from the vetting of their appointments to handling the limited foreign relationships they've entertained thus far.  But on the domestic agenda they are as sly as foxes, and our future is the henhouse.  And in refusing to allow a "good crisis" to go to waste, the strategic move to remake Amerika anew has begun.

Is Obama Designing the End of Capitalism?  All of Obama's economic policies thus far are designed to drive America into full embrace of socialism.  His chief means for this transformation:  inflation.  He is attempting to inflate the currency through two primary means:  intense deficit spending, and pushing up production costs through union subsidization.  In order to make these measures politically palatable, he cites FDR as an example of good deficit spending; he cites the credit crunch as an excuse for inflationary monetary policy; and he recommends unionization in order to boost wages.

What kind of president thrives on chaos?  Is it conceivable that a president would want matters to get worse?  Lincoln did not pray for a Civil War to befall the country to make him look good; just the opposite.  Washington and the Founders did not want the Revolutionary War. ... What's the actual evidence that Obama is trying to make things worse?  At this point, it can only be inferred from his actions and statements.  Outright proof of sabotage would trigger a political earthquake. ... I don't think we have proof — yet — of outright sabotage at the very top.  We do have reason to worry.  The time to rein in this administration is right now.

The President mocks our Constitution and values.  I watch what is taking place in our country since Obama's presidency began and am saddened at the audacity of his attempt to destroy the country we love and cherish.  His twisted desire to transform us into an enslaved nation regulated by powerful government agencies is a travesty of the ideals granted to the people by the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.  Our Founding Fathers must be weeping in their graves at the sad state of affairs now taking place.  A vicious enemy of our country could not destroy our way of life any quicker than Obama and his Chicago hacks are now feverishly attempting to implement.

Obama should not apologize for America.  President Barack Obama is getting generally positive reviews from the purveyors of conventional wisdom for his performance at the London Group of 20 Summit and in France during a joint appearance with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.  An admiring news story in the New York Times, for instance, all but hailed Obama for setting "a new tone for the alliance with Europe."  Unfortunately, the new tone consists mainly of Obama apologizing for those times "when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward its European allies.

Apologizing for America.  One of President Obama's first official acts was to grant an interview to Al Arabiya, the Arabic language network that broadcasts worldwide.  It signified, aides explained, the new page that Obama meant to turn in relations with the Arab and Muslim worlds.  Just as he did last week in Europe, Obama began the conversation by criticizing America.

How the Obama Revolution Came to America:  There are ten easy steps toward a progressive-socialist-Marxist civil society:  change the popular consensus; destroy Christianity, the traditional family, and existing social mores; transform the culture; install a radical Left mind-control; attain political power; impose strict control of the military and law enforcement; restrict freedom; socialize the economy; erase American sovereignty; and embrace a world without borders. ... This requires a confrontation at all levels of society to undermine, weaken, and replace traditional American values in the schools, media, family, and unions with Gramsci's socialist ideals.

Obama tries out role as apologizer-in-chief.  America, to hear President Obama tell it, is an occasionally arrogant nation struggling with shameful legacies of racism and discrimination, one that bears a large share of the blame for the world's economic and climate crises.  Oh, and our train service is lousy.

Obama Endorses Soros Plan to Loot America.  At the G 20 summit in London, President Barack Obama won rave reviews from reporters, many of whom clamored like school kids for the chance to ask him a question at his news conference, but the official conference document proves that plans are being made for what can only be described as the further looting of American taxpayers in order to feed unaccountable and corrupt global entities.  This is not "global cooperation," as so many in the media described it, but a massive new expansion of the power and authority of international agencies and institutions such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

Obama Is Anti-Oil And Anti-American.  Oil producing nations such as Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states, along with Venezuela, will grow rich while Americans will be faced with high costs for gasoline, heating oil, and everything else that depends on oil such as asphalt or even Vaseline.  Meanwhile, oil producers in America, large and small, will take a financial beating.  If you don't like living in a modern, advanced and industrialized society, you will favor this.  If you think Americans consume too much, drive too much, and deserve to be punished for it, you will favor this.

Echo Of Europe.  Sixty-one years to the day after Truman signed the Marshall Plan rebuilding war-torn Europe, President Obama apologizes to French youth for U.S. arrogance.  Our defense of freedom is no shame.

The Obama Counter-Revolution.  Barack Obama and his Democrats are not attempting a revolution in American government or politics:  what Obama is attempting instead is a counter-revolution.  What has been the establishment in America?  Anyone who seriously believes that champions of liberty, opponents of big government, and foes of totalitarianism have been running our institutions over the last fifty years is crazy.  The radicals of the 1960s were not rebelling about what their professors told them:  they were, instead, advancing the collectivist elitism of their professors.

Barack Obama's Incurable Nausea.  For the past several decades, it is clear that the left has suffered from this malady — this chronic unrelenting nausea — that seems only to be relieved by their periodic explosions of verbal vomit.  What is making them so sick?  What exactly can't they stomach?  In a word, America! ... But these pale in comparison to President Obama's groveling apologies and egregious insults to America on his recent trip abroad, starting with his telling a French audience:  "In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world ... there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive."  Why do leftists behave like this?

Obama's Regrettable Precedent.  During his recent European peregrination, our haughty president became the first American president to speak ill of America while on foreign soil.  Actually, it is rare for an American president to speak ill of America anywhere.  President Barack H. Obama does it practically everywhere.  Now that Fidel Castro has quieted down and the French left is in abeyance, President Obama has become America's leading critic.

Obama, Your Slips Are Showing.  At the rate that Obama and the liberals are going, when it comes to piling up the national debt; nationalizing banks and major companies; scuttling our missile defense system; reaching out to Islamic and Communist tyrants; funding ACORN, AmeriCorps and Hamas; discussing nuclear disarmament with Russia at the same time that Iran, Pakistan and North Korea are gearing up; talking tough to Israel while currying favor with the Arabs and the Islamics; I have no idea what will be left to salvage a year-and-a-half down the road.

Obama reaches out to communist states.  US President Barack Obama has pledged to seek a "new beginning" in ties with communist-ruled Cuba as part of a new era of US partnership and engagement with Latin America and the Caribbean.  Before addressing his counterparts in the hemisphere at the Fifth Summit of the Americas in Trinidad, Mr Obama also initiated a handshake with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, one of Washington's most virulent critics in the region.

Obama Welcomes America-Bashing.  Of all the bizarre fictions that the media have spread about Barack Obama, the strangest is that's he non-ideological.  The supreme purveyor of this fantasy is Obama himself.  During his trip to Tobago to meet with Latin American leaders, the president claimed "we can make progress when we're willing to break free from some of the stale debates and old ideologies."  That's a pretty funny sentence when your foreign policy reeks of Jimmy Carter, fermented since 1977.

Obama's Narcissism:  After he sat listening to a 52-minute tirade about America the Fascist Imperialist tyranny, a droll Barack Obama told the media that the rant by Nicaragua's Daniel C. Ortega "wasn't about me."  No, it wasn't.  It was about America which evidently didn't concern the narcissistic U. S. president since it involved John F. Kennedy, not he.  And it did not occur to him to defend America since he himself wasn't named:  thus the narcissism.  Also the lack of patriotism.

Obama Blames America.  [Obama] had gone to Europe not as the voice of his nation, but as a missionary with a message of atonement for its errors.  Which were, as he perceived them — arrogance, dismissiveness, Guantanamo, deficiencies in its attitudes toward the Muslim world, and the presidency of Harry Truman and his decision to drop the atomic bomb, which ended World War II.  No sitting American president had ever delivered indictments of this kind while abroad, or for that matter at home, or been so ostentatiously modest about the character and accomplishment of the nation he led.

The President's Apology Tour:  President Barack Obama has finished the second leg of his international confession tour.  In less than 100 days, he has apologized on three continents for what he views as the sins of America and his predecessors.  Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America "has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe.

A Timid Advocate of Freedom.  In his first press interview as president, he confessed to Arabic television that America had "dictated" to other nations.  No, Mr. President, America has fought to free other nations from dictators.  And in Strasbourg, the president further claimed that America has "showed arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive."  London's Daily Telegraph observed that President Obama "went further than any United States president in history in criticizing his own country's action while standing on foreign soil."

Barack Obama and the CIA.  Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people — not even Jimmy Carter.  Obama's problem is that he does not know who the enemy is.  To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran:  instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution.  Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens.

Preening and Posturing.  "We have been through a dark and painful chapter in our history," President Obama said when he ordered the release of the Justice Department interrogation memos.  Actually, no.  Not at all.  We were attacked on 9/11.  We responded to that attack with remarkable restraint in the use of force, respect for civil liberties, and even solicitude for those who might inadvertently be offended, let alone harmed, by our policies.  We've fought a war on jihadist terror in a civilized, even legalized, way.  Those who have been on the front and rear lines of that war — in the military and the intelligence agencies, at the Justice Department and, yes, in the White House — have much to be proud of.

100 Days of Reckless Photo-Op Hubris.  [Scroll down]  Obama's photo-ops abroad have been more unsettling:  Bowing and scraping before Saudi King Abdullah, trashing America as "arrogant" (talk about a pot and kettle moment) in front of adoring French and German students, chumming it up with Venezuelan thug-in-chief Hugo Chavez.  These are the defining images of a stunt(ed) presidency blind to our enemies and in a perpetual state of (re)pose.

It ain't pretty.
The Obama Doctrine.  After a mere 100 days, the "Obama Doctrine" for our foreign and security policies has emerged.  And it's terrifying.  The combination of dizzying naivete, dislike of our allies, disdain for our military, distrust of our intelligence services and distaste for our own country promises the worst foreign policy of our lifetimes.  That includes President Jimmy Carter's abysmal record of failure.  The core tenets of the Obama Doctrine to date would make a charter member of the Weather Underground cheer.

Obama is "boiling a frog," and it is us.
Obama cooking up something, can you feel the heat?  I'm not sure yet whether Obama is just an ego-driven fool or a calculated participant following a sinister recipe.  Obama can be spellbinding as he reads lofty speeches off of a TelePrompTer.  But without a script, he can't find his tongue to swiftly condemn piracy against Americans.  He can't stand up for Americans in danger, and he bows to the king of Saudi Arabia where women are oppressed.  Then his flunkies deny that he bowed.

The campaign's over, Obama; it's time to lead.  In Europe, he chastised America for what he called our "arrogance."  In the Caribbean, he gave the dictator of Venezuela a warm smile and a handshake, and called him "amigo."  Before the Saudi king, he bowed low and long.  And just the other day, in a cynical nod to Turkish generals, the American president who campaigned for human rights quietly avoided the word "genocide" in a resolution marking the anniversary of the 1915 Ottoman Turkish slaughter of more than a million Armenian Orthodox Christians.

Obowma and the Saudi King.  Does Obama owe loyalty to Sheikh Abdullah? Did the latter finance his campaign?  Obama spent nearly a billion dollars in his campaign.  Never in history, a politician had this much money at his disposal to campaign.  He never disclosed the source of that money.  There were allegations that he received huge sums of illegal donations, mostly from Arab/Middle Eastern sources.  There were also multiple donations of the maximum $2,000 dollar allowed, by the same donors.  Could all these money have come from one source, the very man who Obama bowed so obsequiously to kiss his hand?

Obamatopia.  Does Obama, whether being nourished on the mother milk of Wright, Ayers, Khalidi, etc, or from his university training and Chicago organizing, really see the U.S. as historically a uniquely oppressive society in terms of race, class, and gender, and hence perhaps have empathy for a Castro or Chavez, at least more than he does for Americans of the sort who go to tea parties and listen to Fox News?

The President Who Hates His Country.  The huge national turnouts at the Tea Parties of April 15 were only the beginning of a movement that was spurred by ordinary Americans waking up to Obama's destruction of our economy, his attempts to reshape America into a banana republic, the grave damage he's inflicted on our military and intelligence services, and his unsavory predilection for embracing our enemies and apologizing non-stop for the most magnificent nation on earth.  In short, they are waking up to the president who hates his country.

Barack Obama Is No Patriot.  Patriots don't associate with and derive sustenance from terrorists, America-haters, and anti-Semites; they don't countenance fixed elections; they don't keep secrets from voters; they don't intimidate their enemies; they don't denigrate and degrade our military; they don't gratuitously interfere with their government's efforts to protect our country; and they don't disdain the symbol of this great Nation, which for over two centuries men and women have fought and died:  the American flag.  Whatever Barack Obama is, we can be certain that he is no patriot!

Obama silent as Oretga trashes America.  This is a man who once professed that the power of words is paramount and ridiculed the view that words don't matter.  We also know that during the campaign he warned that criticism of his wife was "off-limits".  But criticism of America — well, that is fine.  So words do matter to Barack Obama and criticism does rile Obama — just not when they are use to tarnish and defame the image of America.

20 Great Moments from Obama's First 100 Days!  [#16]  After rebuking freedom-loving Venezuelans by shaking hands with their thuggish dictator for life, Hugo Chavez, Barack Obama accepted an anti-American book that Chavez gave him as a gift.  A President who loved the country he led would have been insulted.

Disparaging America from the Oval office.  It must be said that Barack Obama tosses out apparently feckless suggestions about important matters rather flippantly.  He wants to share the wealth; told a pre-election questioner that he would raise capital gains taxes even if it reduced government revenues, out of "fairness"; and has transformed the foreign visit into an itinerant, vicarious, confessional, where he seeks expiation for his country and his own predecessors, interspersed with the exchange of unlikely gifts — an iPod to the British and Commonwealth monarch of 57 years, and the "Idiot's Bible" of Latin American socialism from Venezuela's Hugo Chavez.

A Republican Platform For The 21st Century.  I don't know about you, but I was totally disgusted with President Obama's shameless Apology Tour around the world.  Apologize to Europeans, on whom we've spent untold oceans of blood and treasure to rescue and defend over a century?  Apologize to banana republic dictators like Chavez and Ortega in Latin America?  To allow them to slander us as Imperialists, even as they oppress their own peoples?  How am I supposed to feel proud as an American now?

It's no longer a laughing matter.  When the President embarrassed America with his lame gift to the British Prime Minister, it was so sad it was funny.  I giggled under my breath.  When the One could not convey any coherent text without the aid of his teleprompter, I snickered until I realized that these words were not his.  If the machine failed, he was absolutely lost and could not find a meaningful conveyance with two hands and a flashlight.  When he then went on the apology tour of Europe; bowed to the Saudi king and shook hands with Hugo Chavez, I grinned, but the laughter was absent when I came to the conclusion that this man truly despises what America stands for.

Obama the Destroyer.  If somebody were deliberately trying to undermine the very fabric of these United States, he would first vow not just to change its policies but to completely "change America," and then would do just about everything Barack Obama already has begun to do as president.

Limp legacy of the wet and weak.  Barack Obama's legacy is coming sharply into focus, four years early.  He's out to transform "a nation of laws," once the pride of the Anglo-Saxon heritage and exemplar to the world, into "a nation of feelings."  We won't need judges, just social workers damp with empathy.  This is in line with the president's larger vision, to cut America down to a size a community organizer could manage, making it merely one of the nice nations of the world, like Belgium or Brazil.  The home of the brave and the land of the free would become what our English cousins call "wet," weak, ineffectual, fragile, fearful, and inconsequential.

Patriotism in the Age of Obama.  During the presidential campaign, many citizens (and potential voters) took offense to the fact that candidate Obama refused to wear a US flag pin on his lapel as had become customary for many politicians after 9/11.  Upon winning the nomination of the Democratic Party, lo and behold, the pin appeared on Obama's lapel. ... Now that Obama is in the White House, this lack of patriotism, and disdain for the American flag in particular, is being reflected in real life circumstances.  A pattern is emerging and it is quite disturbing.

Obama's regret-and-redemption road show.  On Thursday [6/4/2009], Obama will indulge his hubris in Cairo by treating 1.4 billion Muslims to a lecture on American failures, a subject on which most of his intended audience needs no further instruction.  He will go on to explain how his own presidency is a repudiation of that checkered past.

'Inner Muslim' at work in Cairo.  Now it's on to Normandy, to apologize to the Germans.  It's the least an American president can do after the way the Allied armies left so much of Europe in rubble.  There's a lot of groveling to do for what America accomplished in the Pacific, too.  This prospect should appeal to Barack Obama, who relishes the role of Apologizer-in-Chief.

Barack Obama's 10 mistakes in Cairo.  [#1]  "Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail."  With this phrase, Obama dismissed the notion of American exceptionalism, the belief that the United States occupies a special place among nations.  Obama clearly doesn't see the United States as a "Shining City upon a Hill" or its history, constitution or way of life giving it special qualities or responsibilities in the world.

The president's Cairo speech:  worse than feared.  The president said: "I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.  But that same principle must apply to Muslim perceptions of America.  Just as Muslims do not fit a crude stereotype, America is not the crude stereotype of a self-interested empire."  The same principle?  Shouldn't an American president feel an attachment to his own country above all?  Shouldn't misrepresentations aimed against that country energize him more?  And yet the tone of this speech suggested that if anything, such misrepresentations energize him rather less.

Who Has Lost Their Way?  In the first five months of his presidency, Obama has traveled the world apologizing for the transgressions of America committed by the 43 previous administrations.  He has used terms such as we "went off course," "lost our way," and "made mistakes."  In the most recent leg of the never-ending apology tour, Obama addressed the Muslim World with one of the wordiest requests for forgiveness offered to date.  All of this under normal circumstances would be quite disturbing.  But coming less than a decade after the atrocities of 9/11, these statements about America's sins against the Muslim world are alarming to hear from the mouth of the POTUS.

Mutual Of Obama's Wild Kingdom.  Like a scene from The Day the Earth Stood Still, President Obama, in his Cairo speech, has just informed the nations of the Earth, "Any world order that elevates one nation or any group will not prevail."  With these words, he has provided his plan to abandon the present world pecking order.  No longer will the United States, the world's best hope against tyranny and fascism, be front and center.  Instead, the nations of the world are going to work together in some type of global mutualism.

The Unsustainable Obama Presidency.  Less than six months into it and the Barack Obama presidency has been unmitigated mayhem.  Barack-caused disasters befall the nation on a near daily basis, one can scarcely keep track anymore.  We have endured his offensive schmoozing with slave owners tour in the Arab states, punctuated by his contemptible speech in Cairo, in which the president spouted flagrant falsehoods about the charms of Islam, while berating the United States for being a bit churlish about radical Muslim ideology after 9/11.

Obamamotive.  The President is fond of saying that we are five percent of the world's population, but we consume twenty-five percent of the world's resources.  This implies that we waste all these resources.  We absolutely do not.  We use these resources to feed, clothe, shelter, defend and provide all manner of goods and services for not only ourselves but a great deal of the world's population.  In addition, it's not as though we forcibly take resources from others; we buy them.  Moreover, we wouldn't have to buy so much of them if we were allowed to produce our own.

Speak for America, President Obama.  The developments in Tehran are a potentially big moment, signaling the possible transformation or at least reformation of the Iranian regime.  American principles and American interests argue for support of the Iranian people in this crisis.  And where is the American president?  Silent.

America's Supine Leader.  Since becoming president, Obama has repeatedly demonstrated his affinity for tyrants.  First, he warmly embraced the reprobate who perverted Venezuela into a police state.  Then, he called the depraved mastermind of the 1972 Munich Massacre "a great champion of peace".  Now, he exalts Iran's homicidal dictator.  Not unlike Squeaky Fromme, Obama is irresistibly attracted to bloody hands.  The president is a self-described "progressive", and the progressive narrative is that American misbehavior catalyzes worldwide evil.  After accepting this inversion of reality, one invariably concludes that those who hate the United States must be the good guys.

After Obama Fails.  Indeed, from the Sotomayor pick and anti-business rhetoric to the endless lecturing about America's sins, Mr. Obama is starting to sound a lot like his former pastor.  To be sure Obama is not as grating and shrill as Mr. Wright but closer to something more like Jeremiah-lite.  In other words, Mr. Obama's strategy seems to be to convince Americans to drink his socialist tonic out of sheer guilt.  I'm not sure what is so inspiring about all of this.

Jeremiah Wright Foreign Policy:  Anyone familiar with the views of Barack Obama's pastor of twenty years might wonder if Reverend Jeremiah Wright is the chief inspiration behind the president's foreign policy.  The president's overseas forays — dubbed the "American Apology Tour" — have featured Obama issuing one apology after another on behalf of a U.S. he has pronounced guilty of countless transgressions. ... Wright, too, found unlimited fault with America.

Liberals Don't Need No Stinking Principles! When Barack Obama takes every opportunity to tell the world how awful we are — or at least how awful we were until he got elected — it has to make people wonder if, like his missus, he had never been proud of America prior to his canonization by the media.  It doesn't make things a lot better when he makes obviously foolish remarks, such as insisting that the U.S. is one of the largest Muslim nations, and that Muslims played a major role in the creation of our republic.

Why Doesn't Obama Care About Freedom?  The Washington Post editorial on Cuba only scratched the surface of the dangers we face from this White House.  Ultimately, the question that has to be seriously addressed by the Post and other media is:  What should we do about the fact that the President of the United States is allied with those forces that want to bury us?

Obama the Redeemer.  Is there a pattern emerging, given the Cap and Trade bill recently passed at Obama's urging?  Indeed there is.  His apology tour for past American "sins" (all occurring before his reign, he explains) was not enough for Obama to cleanse our collective historical record.  He wants to go beyond being the redeemer.  He wants to be the rectifier.  The military has been complicit in war crimes, so we should gut the military so as to minimize the risk of similar "crimes" in the future.  Has America,as the great industrial power, used its might to pollute the earth?  Gut American industry with taxes, regulations, and cap and trade (which will empower our competitors and reduce America to a second-rate, if we are lucky, industrial power).

Obama: Student Radical.  So now, nearly six months into the Obama presidency, the mainstream media has finally done a bit of the candidate background reporting it declined to do during the campaign — other than in Wasilla — and whaddya know?  The New York Times unearthed a 1983 article called, "Breaking the War Mentality," that Columbia student Barack Obama wrote for a campus newspaper.  The article shows that Obama dreaded American "militarism" and its "military-industrial interests," while effusing enthusiasm for the dangerously delusional nuclear-freeze movement.

Why Does Barack Obama Hate Our Economy?  I think it's a question a lot of us — both right and left — are asking right now.  We originally had such high hopes for President Obama.  While his wife obviously hates America, not even considering liking it until it looked like her husband might get the highest job in the land, it always seemed that Barack was at least apathetic about the existence of America.  While he wouldn't shed a tear if it was destroyed, he didn't seem to mind it being around either.  But his actions lately have shown that not to be true. ... At this point, even the most ardent Obama supporter has to admit he's actively trying to destroy the American economy.

Obama Can't Even Acknowledge US Won Cold War.  Apparently President Obama loathes our country so much, he can't even admit that we won the Cold War against the Soviets.  In an interview with Fox News' Major Garret, President Obama couldn't bring himself to acknowledge that it was the strength and resolve of the United States that eventually led to the collapse of that evil empire.

Obama on Afghanistan:  victory is a four-letter word.  [Scroll down slowly]  I suspect Obama is ignorant in the worst way:  he's ignorant of the extent of his ignorance.  Or perhaps he's not ignorant at all, but purposely twisting the truth.  Or maybe each, at different times.  This tendency of Obama's has been in evidence in many of his speeches:  his summary of the Cold War, which he got entirely wrong.  His Cairo address to the Muslim world on their history and that of the West, in which "almost every one of his references was either misleading or incomplete."  On the campaign trail, when he showed astounding historical ignorance (or prevarication; take your choice) in his mischaracterization of the Berlin airlift.  Obama's errors are not random; they fit a certain pattern...

Obama Grovels to Russia.  The press, true to form, is hailing Obama's trip to Russia as statesmanlike.  Reality, as usual, is different.  When Obama took a pass on missile defense and agreed with Russia's Medvedev to reduce our nuclear arsenal by one-third, he accomplished worse than nothing.  He sold out our Eastern European allies, dumping a desperately needed missile defense plan for Poland.  As he did so, he revised history, claiming we did not win the cold war.  Obama said, "We don't have to diminish other people in order to recognize our role in that history."  Yes, he said that.  And it gets worse.

Obama's Immoral Authority.  One has to ask:  why did this man run for President?  The knee jerk reaction to such a question is that a man (or woman) runs for President because he loves America.  It is becoming increasingly clear that Obama ran for President because he hates America and wants very much to "change" it.  "There is also no question," Obama said, "that Guantanamo set back the moral authority that is America's strongest currency in the world."  No, Mr. President.  Your position on Iran, Israel, Honduras, Chavez, Ukraine, Georgia, and the American taxpayer did that.

Why Should WE Pay For Free Health Insurance for Illegal Aliens?  [Scroll down]  There is no getting around the mounting evidence that the liberal Democrats in our Congress are no longer serving the American people; they are instead assisting Obama in his quest to destroy this country and deliver it into the hands of the corrupt and incompetent United Nations.  There is some indication in polls that even the real American Democrats are in agreement with that.  They now have the votes necessary to carry out just about any vicious and damaging plan they wish and with the concurrent approval and shepherding from the White House, it can be a done deal.

Victory Is So Yesterday.  There is a reason that the word victory conjures up in Barack Obama's mind the 64-year-old image of Hirohito and MacArthur:  he has never acknowledged the much more recent American victory in Iraq.  If he had not politicized and downplayed the U.S. accomplishments there, he would have a sterling example of an American triumph in asymmetric conditions.  Instead, he inspires the headline (seen by friends and enemies alike) "Obama:  'Victory' Not Necessarily Goal in Afghanistan."  Isn't that grand?

Regardless of Where He Was Born, Barack Obama Is No American.  In just over six months, this president has been exposed as the most hateful and dangerous anti-American activist to have ever occupied the White House.  Some of the more outrageous examples of Obama's treasonous behavior since January 20:
  •   Seized private enterprises & converted to government entities
  •   Sought to cut the defense budget in order to help fund social programs
  •   Denounced America and American leaders while on foreign soil
  •   Apologized for America on numerous occasions, also on foreign soil
  •   Ignored or shunned strong American allies while cavorting with communist dictators...
  •   Isolated and betrayed the state of Israel
  •   Bowed to a foreign king
  •   Declared that America is not a Christian nation

Honoring an America-Hater.  The Medal of Freedom is the nation's highest civilian honor.  Past recipients include John Wayne, Norman Rockwell and Vaclav Havel.  This year, one of the 16 recipients President Obama selected is former Irish President and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson.  Bad choice.

Demolition Man:  Building the Anti-America.  Barack Obama is proving himself to be a destructive nihilist with capitalism, the Constitution, the Rule of Law, and the traditional American experience in his crosshairs. ... When Obama emphatically says he doesn't want to run the banks, Wall Street, or the auto industry, he is telling the truth in a sideways sort of way because he abhors work with a passion. ... Obama is a continental divide of American understanding, a gushing river of American anti-matter.

A U.S. President, Raised on KGB Propaganda.  From his communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis to the unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Barack Obama has always gravitated towards people holding radical leftist views akin to those of [Manuel] Zelaya.  He eagerly promoted leftist ideology as an ACORN activist and later when he taught and developed theories that opposed the American system of individual liberties in favor of unsustainable group entitlements at the expense of producers — theories that advocated placing the people under the controlling "care" of the state.

Manufactured Healthcare Crisis.  If there were ever any doubt that Barack Obama personifies the Crisis Strategy, it should long since have been removed for anyone with a mind. ... For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the Crisis Strategy was the brainchild of two radical socialist college professors, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven.  The idea was to overwhelm government with demands for services to the point where the system would collapse and provide an opening for the socialists to take over.

Finding no buyers for snake oil.  Master politician that he is, Barack Obama is a lousy calculator.  He spectacularly misjudged the American public's appetite for a government nanny.  Or maybe he miscalculated the power of his slippery tongue to sell government snake oil.  His apparent willingness to abandon the attempt — for now — to nationalize the health-care industry appears to defer the Democratic first step in remaking the home of the brave and the land of the free into Little America, cutting it down to a size incapable of intimidating the likes of Switzerland or Swaziland.

White House Character:  [Scroll down]  Obama also fails the test of standing up for our country.  His strongest suit in the area of diplomacy seems to be to travel to foreign countries and apologize for American misdeeds or disavow long standing policies.  Nations that have risked much to be our allies — the United Kingdom, Israel, former Soviet republics — are thus taught that we cannot be depended on. ... He is a president ashamed of American exceptionalism, and, by extension, of America herself.

Obama's Brick Wall:  The American People.  The litany of his shocks to the system is too voluminous to detail in full, but just consider his calculated takeover of GM, his fraudulently marketed trillion-dollar spending schemes, his cap-and-trade boondoggle, his unilateral declaration of an end to the war on terror, his policy to Mirandize terrorists on the battlefield, his cavorting with terrorist dictators, his soft betrayal of Israel, his ceaseless foreign-soil apologies for America, and his crusade to subsume the health care industry.  These are not tweaks to a glorious constitutional republic, but a frantic effort to undo this republic brick by brick.

Whose Medical Decisions? (Part IV):  What they are trying to do is to create an America very unlike the America that has existed for centuries -- the America that people have been attracted to by the millions from every part of the world, the America that many generations of Americans have fought and died for.  This is the America for which Michelle Obama expressed her resentment before it became politically expedient to keep quiet.  It is the America that Reverend Jeremiah Wright denounced in his sermons during the 20 years when Barack Obama was a parishioner, before political expediency required Obama to withdraw and distance himself.

Rush, Beck Warn Obama Administration Trying to Bring Country to Its Knees.  They warned back in 2008 what might happen if Barack Obama was elected president, and according to conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh and Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck, a lot of bad stuff is unfolding right before our eyes.  Limbaugh appeared on Beck's Aug. 26 program to discuss the threat of the federal government attempting to regulate the media.  He explained the president's policy maneuvers were evidence that this can happen — with very limited opposition in the media.

Did the White House Green Light Lockerbie Bomber's Release?  The recent events in Scotland show the futility of treating a war as a criminal justice issue.  Did Gordon Brown get a green light from the Obama administration to let a convicted murderer, Al Megrahi, go "scot free"?

The Storm Upon Us.  One of three possible scenarios is currently being played out in the United States.  The first option, is simply that the Obama Administration is the most corrupt, dishonest, and inept Administration that America has ever been burdened with.  The second option, is that the Obama Administration despises individual freedom, capitalism, free-enterprise, and is hell-bent on transforming the United States into a fascist/communist collective — a regime that will be run by a venal, ruthless, power-hungry elite.

Another Failed Presidency.  We admire those presidents whose narratives not only touch our own, but who seem stronger, wiser, and smarter than we are. ... But not this president.  It's not so much that he's a phony, knows nothing about economics, is historically illiterate, and woefully small minded for the size of the task — all contributory of course.  It's that he's not one of us.

Obama's Foreign Policy:  Abandon Democracy.  There has been a fundamental change in American foreign policy under President Obama — a change that until now, has been little recognized.  One of the core principles of American policy, that has guided presidents of both parties over the past fifty years, has been largely reversed under the current administration.

The President Without a Country.  Reading and hearing the audacious, shocking statements of the man who was recently elected our president — a young black man living the impossible dream of millions of young Americans, past and present, black and white — I want to ask him, "Just what country do you think you're president of?"

Are we Americans citizens or are we subjects?  [Nancy Pelosi] sees the American people as subjects, not citizens.  So does the president.  "The Constitution is a charter of negative liberties," President Obama said in 2001.  "Says what states can't do to you.  Says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf."

Barack Obama and the CIA.  If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself.  Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people — not even Jimmy Carter.

Humorous video:
Jack Webb Lectures Barack Obama.

The Emerging Obama Doctrine:  The first aspect of the Obama Doctrine is a natural outgrowth of his lifelong associations. Reverend Jeremiah Wright's repeated anti-American screeds, William Ayers' Vietnam era exploits (which were lionized in Obama's political and academic circles), the communist leanings and affiliations of Obama's family and friends have led Obama to the belief that America must apologize for its many evils.  American contrition has always been a central tenet of the Obama agenda.

Brainwashing you can believe in.  When Barack Obama told a Missouri crowd last November, "We are five days from fundamentally changing the Unites States of America," he meant exactly what he said and had a plan to do just that.  What is so striking about that statement is that in order to "fundamentally change" America, Obama will have to destroy the foundation laid by the founding fathers and replace it with one that serves his socialist ideology.

Obama Is Redefining the American Presidency.  Evidence mounts daily that bringing relief and prosperity to Americans does not describe Obama's core understanding of the federal government's role.  An alternative understanding of his agenda is coming into focus.  One based on this:  He is, first, a citizen of the globe — a globalist — and he is, second, an American.  Evidence supporting that notion surfaced before the election.

If Obama Weakens America, Will The World Be More "Fair?"  Are they agendas for the betterment of America?  Or are they agendas for the betterment of the rest of the world?  I'm referring to President Obama's policy agendas.  Despite how much he reasserts that we "must" embrace this or that policy simply because it is "the right thing to do," it's becoming increasingly difficult to claim that Obama's stated plans and intentions advance any sense of American well-being.

Obama's Competing Waterloos.  If you had any doubt before, you cannot reasonably have it now:  Obama believes America has been a very bad actor on the world stage and has much to atone for.  Conversely, he sees little good in the unprecedented benevolence of this super-empire over the years.  And some of you wonder why we think he's got a chip on his shoulder against the country he leads?

Why Obama's Boyish Utopia Endangers Us:  On America's image in the world, in President Obama's utopia he is fine with the idea of "American Exceptionalism" being challenged or even turned upside down.  Yet in reality no country has suffered more loss of its own, for the welfare of others in history.  To Obama, an America that stands tall in contrast to others seems arrogant.  To our enemies, an America that seems ashamed of herself seems weak.

Why Obama-World Is Dangerous.  In President Obama's utopia he is fine with the idea of "American Exceptionalism" being challenged or even turned upside down.  To Obama, an America that stands tall in contrast to others seems arrogant.  To our enemies, an America that seems ashamed of herself seems weak.

Obama The Impotent:  A Dangerous Delusion.  Barack Obama may not get everything he wants, but make no mistake — his policies are statist in design, intent, and effect.  Just because he won't achieve total success doesn't mean he can't cripple the Republic in the trying.

Is Obama pushing to intentionally make America a second-rate world power?  The deficit run up by the first Obama budget was four times larger than the already huge deficit imposed by the last Bush budget.  Added together the Bush and Obama deficits have seriously weakened the confidence other nations, and specifically investors in those nations, have in the American economy and thus in the American dollar.  Investments are now going "off shore" more than ever.

Breaking the Hippie Spell at the White House.  The systematic dismantling of America continues at an almost daily pace, leaving observers reeling in shock and disbelief.  But Obama's shock-a-day-White House is in reality a political strategy, main goal of which is distraction.  The media, mainstream and otherwise, keep churning out the "Look what Obama's done now" message, sustaining intentionally or not Obama's political strategy in action.

Barack Obama's America-effacing presidency.  On the morning after the deadliest instance of Islamist terrorism in the United States since 9/11, President Obama warned the American public not to "jump to conclusions" about the motives that impelled Nidal Hasan's rampage of mass murder at Fort Hood. ... In Hasan's case, it was imperative to resist the obvious connection between Islamism and the killings because, in Obama's view, Americans habitually are on the verge of persecuting Muslims.  As the president's wife once put it, America is "just downright mean."

It's Time Obama Apologize to 1945 Germany.  In China, President Obama apologized for America ... again.  The problem with frequent apologies is that they soon beg the question:  Where does one stop, once one starts?

Obama's expatriate years.  Surprisingly little attention has been paid to the crucial years Barack Obama spent growing up in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 1967 to 1971, ages 6 to 10 in his life.  These formative years, when a child first spends significant time in the wider world beyond his family environment, must have taught him many lessons about America, some of them very unpleasant, given the particular situation of his family.

Barack Obama's Rules for Revolution:  The Alinsky Model.  The guru of Sixties radicals, [Saul] Alinsky urged his followers to be flexible and opportunistic and say anything to get power, which they can then use to destroy the existing society and its economic system.  Alinsky died in 1972, but left behind an organization in Chicago dedicated to his malicious ideas.  This team hired Barack Obama in 1986 when he was 23 and taught him how to organize for radical transformation.

The Five Obama Fails.  Nearly one year after Obama's inauguration, we have an economy heading in the wrong direction, unemployment rising, a deficit that will double, banks failing, a war command which is virtually ignored, 9/11 terrorists given Constitutional rights at a civil trial, and an administration hell-bent on destroying — not "reforming" — the world's best health care system.

Five More Amateur Mistakes By the Obama Administration.  Most Americans find the idea that they should bow to another person offensive and they find it even more galling when their President does it.  It's almost an insult by proxy.  If even your leader is willing to admit he's inferior, what does it say about you?

Take Our Playbook, Please.  The time for words has passed.  President Obama and Eric Holder are placing American lives in danger and openly aiding and abetting America's enemies.  Obama and Holder want to give civilian trials to confessed 9/11 mass-murderer Kalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) and his accomplices.  Giving civilian trials to non-U.S. citizens and unlawful combatants not even protected by the Geneva Conventions is both unconstitutional and a violation of the oath of office to defend Americans against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Totalitarian Sentimentality.  The USA has descended from its special position as the principled guardian of Western civilization and joined the club of sentimentalists who have until now depended on American power.  In the administration of President Obama we see the very same totalitarian sentimentality that has been at work in Europe, and which has replaced civil society with the state, the family with the adoption agency, work with welfare, and patriotic duty with universal "rights."

Obama's Progressive Goose and Our Conservative Gander:  Obama's diplomacy essentially boils down to preening like a peacock on the world stage.  Endlessly apologizing for America and appeasing her enemies looks like a joke — but only to his critics.  Obama appeases tyrants of all stripes and consistently tries to ingratiate himself with the Muslim ummah — only to lose everyone's respect and turn himself into the butt of jokes.  But it only looks like a foreign policy disaster to his enemies on the right.  As far as the progressives are concerned, bowing down to the third-world despots is exactly the right and proper thing to do.

The Obama Administration's Plot Against America.  The American people elected President Obama on the basis of his vague promises of "change," which was assumed by the majority of voters to be something good for our nation.  Fifteen months into his term it is time for us to stop deluding ourselves with his good intentions and accept the fact we must immediately stop the madness of his agenda in order to regain control of our destiny and country.  It is time for us to accept the fact that Mr. Obama's administration has no appreciation or respect for our country's heritage.

We Have Not Yet Begun to Fight.  [Scroll down]  We do not deserve the government Obamanation is giving us.  Nor do we deserve to be scorned as an America that Rev. Jim Wallis -- Obama spiritual advisor, version two -- calls "the great captor and destroyer of human life...totalitarian [in our] claims and designs."  Obama clearly doesn't like us.  And he's laid out his goals, expressing open admiration for, variously, the genocidal systems of Mao and Stalin, and especially Islamic culture.

Barack Obama:  Enemy Within.  We have a president loath to acknowledge American exceptionalism.  Indeed, the weight of the evidence suggests that our chief executive, through both word and deed and with malice aforethought, seeks to undermine — if not dismantle — that exceptionalism.  At one time we properly called such activity anti-American, seditious, or even — under certain circumstances — treasonous.  Today we call it "progressive."

US apologises to American Indians.  The US formally apologised to American Indian tribes today [5/19/2010] for "ill-conceived policies" and acts of violence committed against them.

Revenge of the Coffee House Marxists.  When I was a political science graduate student in the 1980s, the Cold War was still raging, and my university was filled with leftists who were pulling for the Sandinistas, the Nicaraguan Marxists, and other various and sundry Communists around the globe to defeat Ronald Reagan and the United States.  These folk used to meet in the local coffee house and practice talking Marxist gibberish to one another.  After the Cold War ended, I often wondered what happened to my "Coffee House Marxists."  Where did they go? What are they doing now?  It turns out that a substantial chunk of them have gone to work for the Obama Administration.

Disgracing America.  President Barack Obama, who got his start in politics in the living room of domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and spent his first year in office apologizing for American history, has now decisively tipped U.S. foreign policy toward America's enemies.  Events of the past week have left no doubt.  There is a pattern.  President "Let No Crisis Be Wasted" Obama twists events to justify his radical agenda.  A financial crisis becomes the excuse for a massive health care entitlement.  An oil spill is exploited to push an unpopular energy tax.  And a jihadist publicity stunt — the Gaza flotilla — becomes the occasion to throw Israel to the wolves.

Mr. President, Is America Exceptional?  You Betcha!.  During the 2008 presidental campaign, Barack Obama was asked whether he believed in American exceptionalism.  Sure, he said, "just like the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."  In other words, the only people who think there is anything exceptional about America are some naïve, insular Americans.

The Novel Presidency.  Obama may be the first black president in the history of the U.S., but he will be remembered more for his policies that have initiated the decline of American's exceptional nature — his stated goal, which was more than apparent a few months back when he announced that "whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower."  Now that is a novel statement from the leader of the free world.  Sadly, the president's obvious disdain for America's superpower status is not the only example of his novel ideas for America's future.

Barack Obama Is Making Me Laugh.  [Scroll down]  So I listened to his speech on immigration and chuckled as he lectured us, yet again, on what America is — as if he had a clue about what America is.  His contempt for us is so palpable.  As if he had any respect for what makes America great — free speech, individual rights, entrepreneurship, and privacy rights.  As if he had a clue as to why legal immigrants come here — to escape tyrants and would-be tyrants like him.

The First Special Interest.  President Barack Obama, and the clutch of conspirators he calls advisors, would do well to recall what the first special interest was.  They won't, because they have an agenda:  not to see that the laws are faithfully executed, as the executive branch is supposed to, but to establish a new form of government.

Bolton:  'Obama Won't Defend American Interests'.  "The American people want to be defended.  They want an American president who will stand up for American interests, and I think they will understand that's not Barack Obama."

Are the Sins of the Fatherless the Root of Obama's Tyranny?  Does Obama's anti-democratic ideology result from his dysfunctional childhood?  An intriguing book, Faith of the Fatherless:  The Psychology of Atheism, by Paul Vitz, argues this type background is a common precursor to the classic tyrant's personality.  This suggests Barack's beef with America might result from his own deficient past.

The Livable Communities Act.  President Obama's flippant dismissal of American exceptionalism last year stirred a lot of criticism because it suggested he did not believe the United States held a special place in the world.  It also suggested America's unique history is, to the president, no big deal.  Now, with fellow travelers exercising power at all levels of government, progressives can do more than just belittle the idea of American exceptionalism.  They can enact policies to make America unexceptional — diminishing our quality of life and dampening opportunities for the next generation.

Obama Backing Mosque Defies Religious Freedom.  As the emotional debate over building the Ground Zero Mosque continues, President Obama announced his support for the Muslim initiative. ... In citing the need to preserve "the writ of our Founders," Obama ignores history and a major concern about Islam cited by two of our Founding Fathers.  He also fails to grasp the concept that religious tolerance does not mean embracing religious intolerance.

More about the proposed Ground Zero mosque.

Obama administration indicts America.  Move over Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Syria.  The State Department has made it official:  The United States violates human rights.  In an unprecedented move, the Obama administration submitted a report to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights detailing the progress and problems in dealing with human rights issues in this country.  The document is a strange combination of left-wing history and White House talking points.

The State Dept.'s Campaign Brochure.  When the president violated all traditional comportment and protocol in his State of the Union address in January by blasting Supreme Court justices sitting a few feet away from him, he said he didn't think "American elections should be bankrolled by America's most powerful interests, or worse by foreign entities."  Now his administration has reversed that image.  Our own State Department has had the taxpayers bankroll what amounts to an Obama campaign pamphlet concocted for the consumption of a foreign entity:  the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Human Rights Kowtow.  President Obama and his State Department have been widely criticized for downplaying human rights in their efforts to engage abusive regimes in Iran, China, Russia, Burma and even Sudan.  But there's at least one country whose human rights record merits the Administration's minute scrutiny:  the United States.

What Obama Thinks of America:  Sometimes the best way to find out what a person thinks about you is to find out what he tells others.  That's why the report on America's human rights record filed by the Obama administration with the U.N. is particularly interesting.

It's what Obama stands for, not what religion he practices.  Their dominations were different, some did not go to church, but every iconic American president -- Washington, Lincoln, the Roosevelts, Reagan and Kennedy — believed in a covenant between God and this country, in a special grace on this country, and in a special role for this country, in perfecting itself as a democracy, and becoming a beacon to all of the world.  They saw it as a city on hill, and the last, best hope of humanity; he sees a place with unresolved problems, that throws its weight around in the world.

"Is Barack Obama anti-American?"  David Limbaugh stopped by HUMAN EVENTS's office to give an exclusive interview on his new bestseller, "Crimes Against Liberty:  An Indictment of President Barack Obama."

How Obama Sees America.  The Obama administration recently submitted a 29-page report to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on human rights in America.  It won the praise of the ACLU, which points out that the report "correctly acknowledges the need for improvement in several key areas, including racial justice, women's rights, LGBT [Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgender People] rights and discrimination against Muslims and Americans of South Asian and Arab descent." ... The report reads like a term paper by a very earnest and very politically correct college freshman.

Obama tells the U.N. how great he is.  President Obama's administration recently submitted a report to the United Nations on human rights in America.  The 29-page report shows the nation badly flawed but fortunate to have a Nobel Prize winner as its leader.

By Any Means Possible — The American Civil War of 2010.  Obama has banned use of the words Islamic extremism, jihadist, Islamist and Islamic terrorism, among others, from the official administration language; preferring instead to state America is at war with radical extremists.  Add to these fundamental changes in course and policy the addition of self-described "Devout Muslims" to his administration, and one understands why a majority of America seriously questions his motives.  Marxists/Socialists, as history has shown us, will do and say anything in their quest for power.

United States Declares War on Arizona, Literally.  [Scroll down]  Obama proves over and over again his absolute disdain for our Constitution and his deep hate for our country.  His every speech contains at least one derogatory comment about the United States, and an equal amount of how great is the world of Islam.  And there are some people who just can't see the truth for all of the lies that come out of his mouth.

Another Perspective On Obama's 'Brillance'.  Though Obama claims to be a Christian, he was brought up at a very impressionable age as a Muslim.  His long "Christian" relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his career choices, his Senate voting record — have all been about as anti-American establishment as they could be!  Since he'sbeen president, his foreign policy actions have almost all been anti-American establishment:  dissing our allies, stalling troop renewal in Afghanistan to allow al-Qaida time to rebuild its strength, apologizing to the Egyptians and responding to aggressive enemy threats by doing nothing except trying to talk nice.

U.N. report clearly not treason, just treasonous.  Apparently the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton's State Department consider our republican form of government a human rights deficiency.

David Limbaugh:  'Obama has a grudge against America.  It's personal.'.  [David Limbaugh's] new runaway bestselling book, "Crimes Against Liberty:  An Indictment of President Barack Obama," has struck a chord with the public, debuting at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.  An unusual page-turner for its genre, Limbaugh's book presents exactly what the title suggests:  a meticulous case against the President of the United States for his unprecedented assault on ordered liberty and the American way of life.

Barry Soetoro's Indonesian Expatriate Hell.  In his most formative years, the boy who became President of the United States was, in other words, subjected to humiliating, demeaning membership in a lower caste and cognizant both of the seemingly undeserved privileges of children born to high-caste expatriates and the grinding poverty of ordinary Indonesians among whom his family lived.  That a deep anger and sense of unfairness would develop in such a situation seems more than likely, laying the groundwork for resentment of American power and wealth, and an embrace of anti-colonialist ideologies which undergirded a quest for political revenge, later in life.  It was not a pleasant life Barack Obama endured in Jakarta as the child Barry Soetoro.  Regrettably, all Americans are now forced to share some of his pain.

Review of David Limbaugh's Crimes Against Liberty.  "This book is about a young presidency," Limbaugh opens.  "[Y]oung, but already the most destructive in American history  Everything about Barack Obama's radical background signals his visceral contempt for America — its culture, its values, and its political and economic systems.  His unmistakable goal is to bring America down to size — an America that has been, in his view, too big for its britches, selfish, exploitative, unfairly wealthy, arrogant, and dismissive."

Obama, the Academic Zombie.  Obama is the child of two Ph.D.'s, and other than having been a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, he has no appreciable practical work experience.  Given his upbringing's remote fatherly attention and his rejection of his mother's native culture, it may be safe to say that Obama is more truly a progeny of academia than he is of either of his natural parents.  One writer currently claims Obama is channeling his father's Kenyan anti-colonialism.  More accurately, it is the groupthink of academia to which Obama is fully assimilated and loyally patriotic, not America or Kenya.

Obama Asks Thug Nations To Judge America.  Does America engage in massive and widespread violations of human rights?  The Obama administration thinks so.  That's the takeaway of the "Report of the United States of America Submitted to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights."  The introduction says it "gives a partial snapshot of the current human rights situation in the United States, including some of the areas where problems persist in our society."  What human rights problems?

Obama's Empathy Deficit.  Barack Obama couldn't care less about what we think or what we desire.  We have countless examples by now to make this a maxim.  We want jobs; he gives us job-killing social engineering that would make the pharaohs faint.  We want to keep more of our hard-earned and rapidly decreasing earnings and savings; he wants to tax that away from us.  We want cheap energy; he wants to kill the coal industry, raise electricity prices, and all but choke our ability to tap vast oil supplies off our shores.  We want good and affordable medical care; his plans will take that away from us.  We want security from Islamic terrorism; he does not even recognize the threat and dares not speak the words.

Obama Addresses the U.N. and Blames...Wall Street?!  President Barack Obama told the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday [9/23/2010] that America's financial crisis was the reason their economies were suffering and promised to not rest until people around the globe prosper.

Why Barack Obama Hates America.  If Obama is vehemently opposed to a world defined in America's image, to Pax Americana, then we would expect him to be cagey and defensive about displays of patriotism that convey America's leadership in the world.  Sure enough, a Time photograph from the presidential campaign shows Obama at a fundraising event with several other Democratic politicians.  The magazine noted that the national anthem was playing, but the photo shows that Obama does not have his right hand over his heart.  And he's the only one:  everyone else does!  Network video footage of the event confirmed that Obama was the lone holdout in this traditional display of patriotic allegiance.

Team Obama intentionally self-destructing the republic.   — But there is likely another factor at work, as many have come to suspect:  namely, a deep resentment of the usages, principles, and geopolitical behavior of the nation he ostensibly governs and for which he relentlessly apologizes.  It appears he has done everything in his power to bring it to the very brink of ruin, alienating its allies, courting its enemies, surrounding himself with incompetents, toadies, petty despots, and neo-Marxists, introducing fiscal programs that have only exacerbated the most devastating economic crisis since the Great Depression, rendering the borders of the nation permeable to a veritable invasion of "illegals" and criminal elements, cutting back on its military hardware, and "reaching out" to an Islamic world whose inroads into the American body social he has thereby materially facilitated.

'One Nation' under Obama Has No Respect for America.  President Obama himself is the quintessential disrespecter of all things American.  Democrats, once proud defenders of the First Amendment's free-speech guarantee, have now become, under Obama, its fiercest critics.  Barack Obama has used the presidency to single out, mock, and threaten with cut-offs to access, any and all media outlets who dare to hold his policies to even a modicum of honest scrutiny.  Starting off his administration by telling Republicans they "couldn't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and expect to get things done," Obama has stridently picked fights with conservative talk radio and Fox News as though the First Amendment did not apply to them.

What drives Barack Obama's rage against America?  Our President is hell bent on slashing our nuclear stockpiles, while lunatic regimes in Iran and North Korea want a robust program of their own.  Obama derides entrepreneurship, business, and our free-market system, as he pushes an unprecedented Washington power grab in the auto, financial, healthcare, and energy sectors.  He even supports oil drilling off the coast of Brazil, but not in the country he was elected to lead.  And that list doesn't even scratch the surface of Obama's governing sins.

American Exceptionalism: Obama vs. Jefferson.  In April 2009, President Barack Obama said, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."  This reflects a basic misunderstanding of what American exceptionalism means.  It doesn't mean that Americans are exceptional people (although in many respects we are).  It means that the values our Founding Fathers expressed in our founding documents are exceptional!

The Adversary President:  Obama vs. America.  As we approach the November elections after two years of the Obama presidency, oddly enough, a burning question is still, "Who Is Barack Obama?"  That question was the title of a Richard Cohen column, but practically since Obama's first day in office, the public has been asking, Is he a socialist?  A Marxist?  Anti-American?  Anti-colonialist? ... The category Obama fits best is what scholars call the "adversary culture."

Obama Remembers Mumbai: What About Fort Hood, Sir?  President Obama began his 10-day, pre-holiday Asia vacation in Mumbai, India by memorializing the victims of the terrorist attacks from two years ago.  In a somber and respectful tone, he declared, "We'll never forget." ... All well and good.  Unfortunately, the president's staff must have forgotten an equally memorable terrorist attack, one that took place at Fort Hood, Texas on November 5, 2009.

Is The President Learning Economics By Trial-And-Error?  During his campaign for the presidency and now nearly two years in the White House, Barack Obama's disdain for America's free market economy has been abundantly clear.  As a candidate, Senator Obama traversed the country preaching his economic doctrines, and the recurrent themes from these messages were quite specific...

The U.S. as U.N. Punching Bag.  Last Friday [11/5/2010], for the first time, the Obama administration put the U.S.'s human-rights record up for questioning and critique under the U.N. Human Rights Council's "universal periodic review." ... The U.S. UPR is to occur every four years.  The idea behind it, as the State Department explains, is "that governments' records should be scrutinized, discussed, and debated by other governments, civil society, human rights defenders, a free press, and their own citizenry."  But wait, that happens every day in America.

Obama's Disastrous Visit to India.  As his political party was delivered a severe blow and his agenda was cut off at the knees on election day he was seen dancing happily all across the [Indian] continent with a lavish visit paid for at the taxpayer's expense even as those same taxpayers were enraged at wild government spending sprees.  As the Indians worried over Obama's foreign policy he refused to call the those that attacked them in Mumbai terrorists and finally on his exit from the country he delivered yet another one of his digs at his own country saying that America is a nation in decline.

Obama and America's decline.  Mr. Obama is a representative of a liberal intellectual stratum that has never been comfortable with American global pre-eminence.  He seeks a future in which the world sets the rules by which the United States must abide.  His view of American limits was summed up when he said during the 2008 presidential campaign, "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK."  Why does Mr. Obama think other countries should have a say in these matters at all?

Obama's Slave Ship.  Using racially charged language, Obama relegates Republicans to the back of the bus.  In a speech to Latinos, he directs the audience to align with him against the "enemy."  But Obama doesn't mean the Mexican Cartel, who are holding sections of Mexico and the United States hostage.  He's referring to conservatives.  Recent photos of Obama have been alarming; they depict a man boiling over with rage.  Have we ever witnessed a U.S. president so pugnacious, so incensed and inflamed by his own people?  But to Obama, we are not his people; this is everything you need to know about Barack Obama in a nutshell.  Although Obama was marketed as the post-racial, biracial uniter, this is not the man behind the mask.

Obama's Authoritarian Multiculturalism.  Barack Obama is an apostle of multiculturalism.  Like many American blacks, Obama believes that America's original moral flaws of slavery and discrimination have been seared permanently into the American character, and that America therefore lacks the moral authority to wield disproportionate power.  Obama also believes he is the perfect instrument for navigating America to its proper, more modest place among nations, and has made strenuous efforts to do so.

What's Up With 'Sputnik?'  The list of American innovations that have changed life on Earth is practically endless, but President Obama is trying to inspire America's next technological wave by referring back to a 50-year-old achievement by a defunct nation — Sputnik.

Obama's Justice Department visual acceleration to global governance.  Some might recall the Internet controversy that took place last July when the U.S. Department of Justice removed the American flag header from its website, replacing "Old Glory" with a solid black background.  In conjunction with the stripping of the stars and stripes, controversy increased with the inclusion of a quote placed on nearly every page of the DOJ web site that reads "The common law is the will of Mankind issuing from the Life of the People."  Based on the number of e-mails I've received over the last few days, it is apparent that many seem to be just now learning of the USDOJ web site makeover.

Trading Away Secrets.  The aircraft industry remains one of America's strongest manufacturing sectors, providing needed jobs and industrial sales.  Already buffeted by the heavily subsidized European Airbus, it may also face stiffer competition one day from a Chinese behemoth buying what American technology it cannot steal.  General Electric plans this week to sign a joint-venture agreement under which it will share its most sophisticated airplane electronics, including technology from Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, with state-owned Aviation Industry Corp. of China, or Avic.

Who Needs a Sputnik Moment?  Never in my worst nightmares did I expect to hear the president of the United States give voice to a dream of building "our generation's Sputnik moment."  For the privilege of becoming an American citizen some 32 years ago, I paid with two death sentences, both levied on me by one of those Soviet bloc countries that spawned the Sputnik era and later collapsed under its own weight.  From my vantage point, ObamaCare now looms over us with disturbing reminders of the Soviet bloc's Sputnik-era health care system.

State of the Obama 'Remaking America' Revolution.  Calling to mind Obama's campaign pledge to fundamentally "transform" the United States of America, good citizens ought never forget that this remaking of America was and still is the goal of the Obama presidency.  By hook and by crook, whether through gargantuan bills passed against the will of the people with aid and abetment from bribes, kickbacks, and corporatist maneuvers, or through the bypassing of Congress with agency regulations, this president has both his mind and his heart set on making America into the "world as it should be" according to Barack Obama.  So how's that fundamental transformation going this year?

Obama's Muslim Brotherhood Ties.  Barack Obama has declared that all opposition groups should have representation in the next Egyptian government, which essentially ensures that the Muslim Brotherhood will be part of that government.  The Brotherhood is the largest opposition group in Egypt, so it will probably end up in the driver's seat in any new regime, and steer Egypt toward becoming an Islamic state inveterately hostile to the United States.  So why isn't Obama working to limit the Brotherhood's scope and influence?  Maybe because he doesn't really have a problem with the Brotherhood, despite its hostility to America.

Obama cuts off VOA funding for China; gives it to NPR.  President Obama's propaganda priorities are becoming clearer.  Does the community activist-in-chief care about a billion Chinese and what they know about their dictatorial government?  Community organizers are supposed to speak truth to power.  How can the Chinese people speak truth to power when they are cut off from learning the truth?

VOA radio broadcasts to China signing off, while Beijing boosts propaganda.  The Obama administration will cancel shortwave radio broadcasts by Voice of America into China this year, as Beijing is expanding its propaganda operations in the United States and around the world.  Critics of the broadcasting cuts, announced Monday [2/14/2011], said major reductions in staff and shortwave broadcasts will sharply curtail an important outlet for unfiltered news and information for large numbers of people in China, especially areas such as Tibet and western Xinjiang province, where pro-democracy forces are opposing Chinese rule.

Liberals Giving Up On American Exceptionalism.  [President] Obama doesn't seem to believe that Americans are more innovative, more creative, more daring and more able to make a difference.  It's as if he and other Democrat leaders have given up on America's greatness and want to manage expectations by lowering the bar of achievement. ... We have the talent.  What the nation lacks is a leader capable of summoning the nation's abilities.

A Man-Made Energy Crisis.  At a time of trillion-dollar deficits, the administration is borrowing billions to promote high-speed rail, and is heavily invested in the federally subsidized $42,000 Government Motors Chevy Volt.  Apparently the common denominator here is a deductive view that high energy prices will force Americans to emulate European centrally planned and state-run transportation.  That conclusion is not wild conspiracy theory, but simply the logical manifestation of many of the Obama administration's earlier campaign promises.

Clash for America's soul.  Despite no promised certification that lifting the military's ban on homosexuality will harm readiness, recruiting or retention, President Obama's Pentagon already has produced materials hatched in a theater of the absurd.  As Washington Times correspondent Rowan Scarborough reports, Marine commanders will have to ponder, for example, what to do if two male Marines are seen kissing in a shopping mall.  Now there's a scenario for building respect for the military among the nation's youngsters.

Obama's Libya: Completing His Remaking of America.  Whether or not you believe anti-colonialism is the driver, Obama's animating foreign policy passion is that America has been an international bully that needs to be brought down to size.  He couldn't wait to confess America's "arrogance" and "dismissiveness" to foreign nations on their soil.  He gleefully told the Muslim world in his Cairo speech how wonderful and peaceful Islam is and how much it has contributed to America.  He made clear that he doesn't believe in American exceptionalism when he said it is no different from Greek or British exceptionalism.

The Commander-in-Chief Bows Once Again.  Since Barry Soetoro was inaugurated, I've documented his penchant for the disregarding laws he doesn't like; along with his disturbing habit of using the Dept. of Justice to selectively enforce or decline to enforce duly enacted laws that conflict with his political ideology.  Examples of such are legion, and not worth enumerating here once again.  Suffice it to say that the evidence that our current Commander-in-Chief cares little for the US Constitution and even less for American citizens is overwhelming. ... Where are the leftist protesters that should be screaming and carrying signs outside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?  Where are the Congressional demands for an immediate impeachment proceeding?

Obama's Libya: Completing His Remaking of America.  Whether or not you believe anti-colonialism is the driver, Obama's animating foreign policy passion is that America has been an international bully that needs to be brought down to size.  He couldn't wait to confess America's "arrogance" and "dismissiveness" to foreign nations on their soil.  He gleefully told the Muslim world in his Cairo speech how wonderful and peaceful Islam is and how much it has contributed to America.  He made clear that he doesn't believe in American exceptionalism when he said it is no different from Greek or British exceptionalism.

About the Birth Certificate:  Two days ago, Matt Drudge linked to a new book by Jerome Corsi, unflinchingly titled Where's the Birth Certificate?  The book immediately leapt to number one on, where it has remained ever since.  The media has shown its usual incredulity at the indisputable stupidity of the American people.  How could so many people question President Obama's birthplace?  How could they wonder about his origins?  Are they all simply racist?  The answer, of course, is that Americans are desperately seeking an answer to a simple question:  Why does President Obama appear to be so un-American?

Obama mixes up Medal of Honor winners.  The Medal of Honor is the highest United States award for valour.  It's the equivalent of the Victoria Cross.  In the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, just eight have been awarded.  Three of them have been awarded by Obama.  The names of recipients are seared on the hearts of many, many Americans.  To mix up SSG Giunta and SFC Monti was just awful and it suggests a relaxed attitude towards American heroes that has been evident on previous occasions.

Michelle Obama: "All This Just For a Flag".  The internet was buzzing Tuesday night with video of First Lady Michelle Obama apparently showing extreme disrespect to the American flag at a ceremony in honor of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  As police and firefighters fold the flag to the sound of marching bagpipers, a skeptical looking Mrs. Obama leans to her husband and appears to say, "all this just for a flag."  She then purses her lips and shakes her head slightly as Mr. Obama nods.

What is Michelle Obama saying during the 9/11 flag ceremony?  There is a growing internet buzz over the First Lady's comment to her husband during the 9/11 commemoration Sunday, as the flag ceremony is taking place.  Watch the video clip below, and lip readers are invited to comment on what she is saying.  To my unskilled eyes, it looks as though she is saying, "All that for a flag!"

Obama bows to Emperor Akihito

Have we gone mad?!  I cannot describe the anger when I saw this.  Our [president], bowing to Emperor Akihito [son of Hirohito] of Japan, a nation that caused our entry into WWII.  For what purpose?  First the Saudi King, now this? ... This is a grave affront to anyone who has ever served, and every GI, and Marine, Sailor and Airman who died fighting the Japanese in the Pacific in WWII.

How low will he go?  Obama gives Japan's Emperor Akihito a wow bow.  How low will the new American president go for the world's royalty?  This photo will get Democrat President Obama a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese who still pay attention to the royal family living in its downtown castle.  Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference to a superior.

Why is this man bowing?  We criticized Barack Obama when he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.  Americans do not bow to royalty.  When the royal is the ruling tyrant of a despotic regime, the wrong is compounded.  Obama's bowing to the King was deeply offensive. ... Obama has now done it again.

Obama's botched bow.  Bad enough that Obama bowed down to another head of state yesterday.  Even worse that he did not bother to learn how one bows in Japan, and just winged it. ... The only redeeming feature is that at least he did not bow his head and bend his knee, as he did wioth the Saudi monarch.

The President Who Grovels.  Could someone in the Chief of Protocol's Office at the State Department please tell Barack Obama that heads of state do not bow to other heads of state?  And for the head of state of the country founded on the idea that "all men are created equal," that goes double.

President Obama vs. The Rest of the World Greeting The Emperor of Japan.  A photo comparison that clearly shows Obama is either a dunce or he hates America.  Or both.

The Bow as "Protocol".  Politico reports that "A senior administration official said President Barack Obama was simply observing protocol when he bowed to Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko upon arriving at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Saturday."  Why won't that "senior administration official" come out from behind the curtain and make that assertion in his own name?  Because it's nonsense.

Why Does Obama Keep Bowing?  President Obama's silent bow is yet another way of apologizing for America's misperceived arrogance and superiority.  He has found yet another way to pander and apologize without ever uttering a single word.

The Stars And Stripes Is De Facto Bowed Before An Earthly King — Why?  This week, President Obama bowed deeply and purposefully before Japanese Emperor Akihito when greeting him on official duties.  Why do this, when it flies in the face of a proud American tradition?  That tradition:  America does not bow before earthly kings.  While other countries often dip their flags as a sign of respect, Americans do not.  As an American of Irish heritage, I proudly credit Irish-Americans with making this tradition prominent.

How Low Can He Go?  President Obama's bows, coupled with his global apology tours, suggest something other than politeness.  President Obama has repeatedly reminded us that he thinks we have been arrogant and high-handed in our dealings with other nations.  By bowing and scraping, he intends to drop us down a peg or two.  The president of the United States really did intend to show obeisance to the King of Saudi Arabia and to defer to the emperor of Japan.  He appears to have done so not to flatter those nations but only to diminish his own.

Obama bows, the nation cringes.  So far it's a memorable trip.  He established a new precedent for how American presidents should pay obeisance to kings, emperors, monarchs, sovereigns and assorted other authentic man-made masters of the universe.  He stopped just this side of the full grovel to the emperor of Japan, risking a painful genuflection if his forehead had hit the floor with a nasty bump, which it almost did.  No president before him so abused custom, traditions, protocol (and the country he represents).

Liberalism Is Dead.  [Scroll down]  Obama showed the world how far he is from JFK's liberalism when he ostentatiously bowed down to two monarchs — the Saudi King, whose tribal kingdom confines women to the home, protects African slavery, and executes homosexuals; and the Emperor of Japan, in whose father's name Japanese soldiers massacred racially "inferior" Asians throughout the "Greater Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere."  Naturally, the Chinese, who still hate the Japanese for what they did, simply went ballistic when Obama bowed to the Japanese Emperor.

More about Obama bowing down to King Abdullah.

Obama bows to Chinese President Hu

He's still at it.

Maybe if He Stopped Bowing.  Here we go again.  President Obama bowed to the Chinese President and the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party, Hu Jintao, when they met in Washington yesterday [4/12/2010].  This latest bow comes after a string of previously humiliating and ridiculous Bama bows:  to the Saudi king, the Japanese emperor, and (my favorite) the Mayor of Tampa, Florida.

Why is this man bowing?  We criticized Barack Obama when he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. ... A reporter asked Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs about the bow.  Under his own name and on the record, Gibbs denied what any fool could see.  Indeed, one astute observer commented on CNN that "Ray Charles could see that he bowed."  Obama did it again when he met up with the Emperor of Japan. ... Yesterday [4/12/2010] Obama did it yet again, this time bowing to the Communist Chinese President Hu Jintao during the official arrivals for the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.

Obama Bows while Hu Stiffs Him.  President Obama bowed to Chinese President Hu while they shook hands at the beginning of the April 12-13 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.  President Hu did not bow back.  The rest of the summit played out the same relationship.

Obama attempts to redefine September 11

September 11 is the anniversary of the day the Religion of Peace struck New York City.  Because of Barack Obama's allegiance to Islam, he apparently deems it necessary to erase the events of 9/11/2001 from the public memory.  The first step is to turn September 11 into an annual holiday that has nothing to do with hijacked airplanes crashing into office buildings.

Obama's Plan to Desecrate 9/11:  The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.  This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year's election campaign.

We Do Not Exist To Serve The State.  The whole idea of a National Day of Service on Sept. 11, whether voluntary or not and regardless of who is promoting the idea, ought to make advocates of limited government jittery.  I mean, aren't taxes, by which the productive subsidize the nonproductive, enough?  How much more service to the government is needed?  Where does it end?

9/11 Official observances must not obscure day's true meaning.  [Scroll down]  And the Rev. Lennox Yearwood, head of the Hip Hop Caucus said:  "The first milestone for Green the Block will be on our National Day of Service, Sept. 11, 2009, where we will organize Green the Block service events around the country in coordination with the President's initiative, United We Serve."  No.  Wrong.  Entirely wrong.  9/11 is not about green jobs or health care or bank bailouts or about the ideologies and egos of celebrities who are planning concerts and other performances this year.  To them, hands off.

Obama's Desecrators of 9/11.  President Obama is counting on two Marxists who blame America for the 9/11 terrorist attacks to help turn Sept. 11 from a day of solemn remembrance into an unseemly celebration of radical environmentalism and Big Government.  The two men charged with this politically correct exercise in desecration and icon-smashing are the boorish, self-absorbed Rev. Lennox Yearwood and the comparatively suave, articulate Van Jones.  Jones is adept at concealing his radicalism; Yearwood is incapable of doing so.

The green-washing of Sept. 11.  Before he abruptly exited the White House last weekend, former green jobs czar Van Jones used his government position to help the Obama administration cynically green-wash the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. ... This attempt to re-brand the horrors of Sept. 11 is part of the effort to ease America along in the radical transformation of the nation that the president promised on the campaign trail.

What country does this president live in?  I have lived long enough, listened to enough presidents and spent enough time in formal education along with extensive reading of various topics to be wary of misinformation and lies.  This week our president has again attacked our country before an international audience at the United Nations.  If you listened, you would think this particular president was the first in untold years to be concerned about people.  He sounded more like a world king rather than the president of the United States.

Once again in 2011:
Obama declares September 11 National Grandparents Day.  Despite the seemingly singular focus on tragedy this September 11, the White House found another purpose for the day: recognizing the importance of grandparents.  Quietly on Friday [9/9/2011], President Barack Obama declared September 11, 2011 National Grandparents Day.

The Editor says...
Even though this "holiday" has been celebrated since 1978, this is still an attempt to draw attention away from the anniversary of the day America was attacked by the Religion of Peace.
