It’s hard to believe that a president, who came out of the swamps of Chicago machine politics, who learned at the knee of the communist revolutionary Frank Marshall Davis, who studied under Marxist professors and befriended Marxist fellow students, who trained intensively in the revolutionary tactics of Saul Alinsky, who launched his political career in the living room of Marxist revolutionaries and domestic terrorists, who worked hand-in-glove with the socialists of ACORN and the thugs of the SEIU, who for two decades sat in the pews of a radical, anti-American pastor, who tried desperately to bury that past, who spoke about the “fundamental transformation of the nation,” who demonized and punished his adversaries, who waged “war” on an entire news organization (Fox News), and who spent his first term carrying out radical wealth redistribution and socialized medicine….so tough to believe that he and his administration would now be caught in a quickly collapsing house of cards. A house of cards built on lies, corruption, cronyism, hypocrisy, surveillance of journalists, and the targeting and destroying political opponents.
The classic tin-pot dictatorship has reached our shores. It’s been here for a while, but it’s taken the last several weeks for many to realize it, after new revelations concerning epic abuses of power: the Benghazi cover-up, the IRS outrage, and the Department of Justice spying on journalists as a way to send a message to them and to potential whistleblowers: SHUT UP. OR ELSE.
Obama set the environment for much of this and must be held accountable as the ultimate “stopper of the buck.” But remember that these scandals are not just a function of his thuggery. They are also a direct result of the ideology of control, embraced by him and his administration but also embraced in a more widespread way by his political party. These are more than simply the crimes of big government. They are the Orwellian horrors that come with an ideology of control.
So while some of the president’s remaining fans (mostly in the press) seem genuinely shocked that there’s been gambling in Casablanca, it comes as no surprise to those who have been under the jackboot of this regime, being discouraged from speaking out, intimidated into silence, and crushed by bureaucracy, despondency, and fear.
In other words, to those of us who have been paying attention since Barack Obama, his henchmen, and their ideology of control came on the scene, it has been no surprise at all.
What IS a surprise is that, given the extent of protection afforded them by the press and allies in Congress and elsewhere, they got caught.
Whether they are held accountable for their crimes and lies is another story all together. Just remember that the Obama press will largely write that next chapter, and they have shown themselves to be corrupt in the extreme.
So it is up to us to lean on our elected representatives and our media and let them know that WE care about these crimes and lies and to force them to cover them and to hold the guilty responsible. They won’t do it on their own. It’s up to us.
