Recently Ralph Nader asked “has there ever been a bigger con man in the Whitehouse?” I ask, “Has there ever been a bigger bunch of con men and women running our government?” It is certain that the current administration, and progressive Democrats and Republicans are conning the electorate. They certainly are not following our Founders example of pledging their “lives, fortunes and sacred honor” to serve the American people. The president as candidate stated before the election as well as after that his administration would be honest and transparent, with no lobbyists. He promised all legislation would be available to the public for 48 hours prior to a vote, he would not legislate via executive orders, and he would not run up the type of debt G.W. Bush did; an act he dubbed “unpatriotic”. He would not illegally engage in a war without Congressional approval like Bush had, and he would protect whistleblowers, to recall just a few of his quickly broken promises.
Instead he put tax cheats in cabinet positions, keeps legislation under wraps until the last minute, does not make proposed legislation available to the public prior to the vote, there is nothing transparent about his administration. How transparent is a 2,000 plus page piece of legislation that has to be passed to see what is in it. His Czars are a collection of crooks, deviants, and some acknowledged communists that are making policy without any Congressional oversight. Multiple records have been sealed by executive orders and he has used executive orders to do as he pleases, not as the electorate desires. When he cannot get his agenda passed by Congress, he by-passes Congress using regulations and executive orders. He has run up more debt than all the previous administrations combined. He engaged in a war in Libya and basically told Congress to jump in a lake when they asked for the justification required by law. He threatens whistleblowers with espionage charges to suppress further revelations. He and his attorney general enforce only those laws agree with, while ignoring the others.
Anyone who disagrees with this administration is called a racist but let’s not forget who the real racists in politics are. The Democrat party opposed civil rights legislation and used the KKK as their enforcement arm, they passed the Jim Crow laws, did not want to end slavery, and fought hard for segregation.
As the list of cons gets longer every day, let’s not forget Obamacare, the IRS, and the budget.
Health care was passed in the back rooms by questionable means, and Obamacare promised lower healthcare cost, no increase in premiums, and Obama himself stated you could keep your doctor or plan and abortion would not be covered. The trustworthy IRS would oversee it and there would be no rationing. The truth is that Obamacare is already increasing the cost of healthcare by thousands of dollars per family and forcing employers to cut jobs, reduce hours, or both. We now know that you will not be able to keep your plan or provider and abortion is mandated. As far as oversight, who can trust the IRS to objectively oversee anything after the recent tax exempt targeting scandal?
The IRS has been exposed as a secret enforcer intimidating those who disagree with the administration, but the president has total confidence in them and congratulates them for a job well done. Are you kidding ? Add to the administration’s abuse of power and their lack of internal oversight (e.g. errantly sending 23, 994 refund checks worth more $46 million to unauthorized” alien workers, who all used the same address, in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011). Add another $38 million sent out to recipients in 10 other cities. The agency needs to be disbanded not praised and certainly not given oversight of healthcare.
From George Washington to G.W. Bush the total national debt was 6.3 trillion dollars. In just one term Obama incurred more that 6.4 trillion in national debt. With all his stimulus packages and crony capitalism payoffs to big donors the president has the audacity to state there is no debt crisis, and the Senate concurs. In the middle of sequestration the Obamas take another family vacation, this time to Africa, where he laughably is pushing for a national ID as a perquisite for voter registration (a program considered racist here), to “Strengthen Democratic Institutions, Rule of Law, and Human Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa.”, at a cost of $53 million to taxpayers. Add to the spending 1.3 billion for the Muslim brotherhood and another billion to arm Syrian rebels, to which Senator Ted Cruz asked, Does anyone know if president Obama intends to perform background checks on the Syrian rebels before providing them weapons? Add to it the crony capitalism that saw $3.9 billion in federal grants and financing that flowed to 21 of the green companies backed by firms with connections to the Obama administration with over 36 green energy companies that have already gone belly up some without producing a single useful product. The president still calls green energy a success and wants to invest in more while attacking the clean coal industry which will drive energy costs through the roof.
Henry Ford nailed it when he stated “Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him had better take a closer look at the American Indian.”
With this administration if it ain’t broke, Obama will fix it until it is, tell us how good it is and the media will push it until it becomes accepted as truth.
