As the month of November draws closer, it is time for real Americans to take a serious look at what we actually “know” about Barack Hussein Obama, the democrat’s choice candidate for the U.S. Presidency. When you get past all his smiling and catchy cliches, what are his actual plans for changing our country’s future. They can be summed up as follows:
- Hug Your Enemies
- Blame America First
- Cut Defense
- Raise Taxes
- Penalize The Oil Companies
Will somebody please explain to me how raising taxes on oil companies is going to lower the price of gasoline … and how not drilling for oil is going to somehow increase our oil supply?
Though these planks in the Obama platform of change are sure to please the rabid anti-American left-wing liberals, they do not bode well for the future and security of our country …. unless, of course, you do want to see our country “changed” into a socialist nanny-state with George Soros and his fan club firmly in charge.
This, in truth, is the “change” Barack Obama is really talking about. Real Americans should be very, very concerned and should work diligently to see that Barack Obama is not elected in 2008.
It is really scary folks, that we, as a country, can even consider Barack Obama as a viable candidate for president, when he shows such lack of judgment and understanding of the world, and seems to admire and respect people like the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
You cannot tell me … at least not with a straight face … that it took Obama twenty years of sitting in a pew in that church to finally figure out he disagreed with Rev. Wright’s anti-American, black liberation, pro-terrorism message. If it did, in fact, take him twenty years .… we certainly should not elect him simply on that basis.
Lets take a look at some of his key supporters and advisors ….
One advisor, Richard Danzig, resorted to quotations from A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh when speaking at a luncheon; as an outside-the-box effort to criticize the Bush administration’s policies in Iraq. During his speech, Danzig read the famous open lines from the book:
“Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump on the back of his head behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming down the stairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping a minute and think about it.”
Look how clever Danzig is! I mean really … if President Bush had only stopped to think … there might be another way to protect our nation from terrorists …. rather than staying the course in Iraq …. or detaining terrorists without habeas corpus at home. Isn’t President Bush just like Edward Bear?
And sadly, at least on paper, Richard Danzig is no dummy! He holds a law degree from Yale and a Ph.D. from Oxford. He was a Supreme Court law clerk and served as President Clinton’s secretary of the Navy from November 1998 to the end of that administration.
Dispite his impressive resume, he seems blissfully unaware that, outside of Afghanistan and Iraq, al Qaeda has been unable to launch successful attacks on Americans since 9/11. Hmmmm … could it possible be that …. horror of horrors …. just perhaps … George W Bush has been doing something right?
Oh yeah! I almost forgot …. Danzig was also secretary of the Navy at the time that the U.S.S. Cole was attacked by al Qaeda resulting in 17 sailors killed and 39 more wounded. Danzig saw first hand just how ineffective our justice system was at prosecuting the war on terror at that time … yet he still makes foolish statements like “I have confidence that our system of justice is strong enough to deal with terrorists.”
Danzig seems, at least to me, to be a genuine space cowboy … making statements such as that … and blindly ignoring the dismal failure of Spain to successfully prosecute the terrorists involved in the Madrid train bombings … despite the fact the Spain’s justice system is much more prosecutorally friendly than ours is.
I would like to add that, in order to use this classic text on National Security, subtley disguised as a children’s book called Winnie-the Pooh, to make his point; Richard Danzig conveniently left off the last line of the passage:
“And then he feels that perhaps there isn’t [another way].”
And who are some of Obama’s supporters? Here is a short list of the whos who in Obama’s radical anti-American and left-wing support groups:
Alan Haber, the first president of Students for a Democratic Society, a left-wing student activist group first founded in 1960.
Jodie Evans, who co-founded the anti-American group Code Pink, said Osama bin Laden had ‘valid arguments’ for the 9/11 attacks, gushed over Venezualan dictator Hugo Chavez and bragged about Code Pink’s efforts to undermine the war in Iraq in a wide-ranging interview with radio host Paul A. Ibbetson.
Tom Hayden, another founding member of Students for a Democratic Society, is a former husband of Jane Fonda and in fact, went to Vietnam with Jane Fonda shortly before their marriage. He was arrested in 1968 as a member of the Chicago Seven (with Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Ruin) for inciting riots. In January of 2008, Hayden wrote an oped piece for the Huffington post supporting Barack Obama.
William Ayers, terrorist leader and founding-member of a split-off group from the Students for a Democratic Society that became known as the Weatherman (AKA Weather Underground), who planned and carried out bomb attacks on police facilities, the Pentagon, and the US Capitol in the 1970s and who, with his wife … Bernadine Dohrn, are now the darlings of California’s liberal left-wing elites. Characterizing Weatherman as “an American Red Army,” Ayers summed up the organization’s ideology as follows:
“Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents.”
Bernardine Dohrn, William Ayers’ wife, hosted meetings at their Chicago home to introduce Barack Obama to their neighbors during his first run for the Illinois Senate. In 1999 Ayers joined the Woods Fund of Chicago, where he served as a director alongside Barack Obama until the latter left the Woods board in December 2002.
Michael Klonsky, whose disgust for mainstream politics led him to launch a new, Maoist Communist Party in the 1970s, today supports Barack Obama so enthusiastically that until recently he was blogging on the Illinois senator’s campaign website.
I even read somewhere a few days ago that Hamas and Raul Castro support Obama’s campaign for President of the United States. What more would any freedom loving, patriotic American need than that!
