As I follow the news, and watched Obama’s speech I began to think about what it all meant.
After listening to Obama drone on for the last seven years the question I keep coming back to is; “What is his vision for America?” After all this time I still don’t understand what the vision is. Does he want a Socialist state, an Oligarch state, or a Representative Republic?
His insistence that ISIS is not a Muslim problem is maddening. He negotiates with Iran, and picks fights with Israel. If you are a US ally right now how comfortable do you feel that we have your back.
Does anyone have a clear sense of what the vision is?December 8, 2015 at 10:41 pm #45876
When I take into account everything I’ve read and heard about, and from, Hussein, I conclude that his sympathies lie with islam and socialism. He was raised from infancy, by communists, to despise America and the concepts and laws which made it into the pinnacle of liberty (therefore, also of justice, and of civilization) it once was, and might yet become again. Not to be too fancy, he hates this nation, and wishes to bring it as low, chaotic, and despotic as he can,
Like others before him, both here and abroad, he is a post-turtle. (Imagine a finding desert tortoise resting on the flat of its carapace, upon the horizontal end of a 4″x4″ fence post, legs and feet reaching out, unable to touch anything but air.) Immediately, you know one thing about him: despite his talents, he didn’t get there on his own. Someone put him there. Someone, or a group of someones, discovered him, found his talents and prejudices to suit their purposes, and managed to put him where he is.
Whether his policies and performance will continue to serve their purposes remains to be seen. But government, despite its rhetoric, invariably serves those with the most money and power. For a long time, such people have been able to surf the wave of phony, inflatable, central bank “money,” to the detriment of the rights and prosperity of everyone else. You don’t expect the billion/trillion-aires to be compelled to cover “the national debt” out of their bank accounts and IRAs, do you? The salient and growing question is whether this government will be able to contain the growing dissatisfaction of an American flock kept perennially sheared as an unusually cold winter comes on. As long as the attention of the flock can be kept focused on the imported wolves, they ignore the preparations for the vast mutton barbecue in the next field.
My guess is that the importation of refujihadis serves two main purposes: it immediately draws the attention of the voter away from being systematically impoverished, and through differential birthrates, subsidized by non-muslims, will eventually produce a muslim voting majority. How far that will be allowed to lead is unclear.

“2016 – Obama’s America” pretty much says it all.

L Tecolote You hit a home run so I can’t write it any better, you said it all. He is not a Socialist, he is a Communist. His father was and he’s father was a Muslim too.December 9, 2015 at 3:38 am #45912
I don’t know what his vision is but I do know it doesn’t include me or you.December 9, 2015 at 5:09 am #45914
Tec, you pretty much said it. About the only two things I’d add would be that he said it quite clearly – people didn’t understand it – he was here to “fundamentally transform America.” That he’s done. And the part about that which most people have no clue about (because they’ve never even heard about it) is that it aligns almost perfectly with the Cloward Piven strategy.
Freedom, important to remember (and understand) is that Obama is NOT an upper-case “Communist.” First, that philosophy, as a functional way of living, is not achievable because of perhaps one thing alone: greed. Personally, I find it very un-useful to even use the word “communist” much these days, because it will be ridiculed immediately by those on the other “side” (whatever the heck that means anymore). And most people today have been conditioned to associate “communism” with failed systems of government that have faded into nothing more than history books. Though I personally see it as a function of fundamental evil, IF a term relating to some “system” is to be used, I’d prefer to call it Marxism, since Marx (and Engels) authored the relatively modern version of it 167 years ago. But don’t spend any significant time on the first three chapters. STUDY, ponder, re-read and re-study the final chapter. It will take you all of two minutes to read even if you’re an exceptionally slow reader, because unlike the first three chapters, it is only 3/4 of one page long. But therein is the real meat, and the give-away to what it’s all really about. Marx calls for the destruction of both the social and political order EVERYWHERE, by whatever means are necessary.. Barack Hussein Obama said he’d bankrupt coal-fired electrical plants, despite the fact that we depend on them currently. He said he’d fundamentally transform America. He’s largely accomplished that. The next 13 months scare the bejeebers out of me. He knows he can do almost anything he wants with his “cell phone and a pen,” and he’ll do it. The Constitution is no factor for him, and the Supremes won’t stop him, nor will Congress. But remember that Obama is merely one of the many “chosen” useful idiots being used to carry out a much greater agenda, understood by few, and much to the world’s detriment. Money and power. Money and power. Money and power. And when they’re ready, Obama will be cast aside and be of little if any value to anyone except his adoring groupies. Heck – he could probably start a new church and would become even more wealthy (he HAS to be wealthy to afford what he wants to move into in Hawaii, post-presidency). Islam and communism inform his philosophies, but it goes way beyond either of those. The one thing that is certain is that HE thinks he’s far more important in it all than he really is. And true narcissistic personality disorders can become extremely dangerous (rivaling the old “psychopaths” now better known as “anti-social personality disorders).
