Yes we are sliding down the slippery slope called Obama-land boys and girls and we are in for quite a rude ride. If his poor choices for high officials aren’t enough, he’s accumulating a number of other far-reaching mistakes with a lot of lousy meanderings in between them to last two terms…or with our new king maybe several terms…pent-up pork-happy liberals are gleefully passing every far-reaching moral-less dream they’ve ever had. B.O.’s decisions point to what is to come and we are held captive on the slippery slope into hell’s liberal damnation.
First, a few of his erroneous choices for high officials:
1.) Rahm Emanuel, B.O.’s choice for Chief of Staff, is part of the Chicago Machine and if Blago narcs when going down, it will be interesting to see what nasty involvements the little raging Obamabot has been into. It won’t matter, however, because like every other appointment, it seems, the Republocrats are mesmerized into following Obama’s twisted lead.
…..Nah! Rahm had nuttin’ ta do wit Blago!
2.) Timothy Geithner , you know the guy who hasn’t paid some $43,000 in taxes for four separate years, is B.O.’s pick for…TREASURY!!
3.) Eric Holder first came under “fire” (no pun intended!) for his involvement in the Mark Rich pardon in the waning days of the Clinton presidency. Billionaire Rich renounced his U.S. citizenship and moved to Switzerland to avoid prosecution for racketeering, wire fraud, tax fraud, tax evasion, and illegal trades with Iran in violation of the U.S. embargo following the 1979-80 hostage crisis. And Newsmax calls Holder a “gun control nightmare” because of his promotion and support of gun bans.
….testifying before the Judiciary Committee was Stephen P. Halbrook, one of the leading Second Amendment attorneys in America. Halbrook has represented NRA and individual gun owners in many critical cases, including the current Second Amendment challenge to D.C.-style gun bans in the Chicago area. Halbrook took Holder to task for his positions. As Halbrook put it in his written testimony:
“Eric Holder has taken a constricted view of Second Amendment rights. Millions of law-abiding Americans exercise the right to keep and bear arms. Mr. Holder’s opinion is that the people have no such right unless they are commanded to exercise it in a formal militia, which renders the right meaningless. He has advocated requiring that all firearm owners be registered with the government and that failure to comply be punished as a felony with substantial imprisonment. The restrictions he favors threaten traditional civil liberties.
“Many Americans have reason to be uneasy about Mr. Holder’s nomination for Attorney General. They deserve to have a person in this role who is committed to upholding all parts of the Constitution, including the Second Amendment. Unfortunately, Mr. Holder has proven himself not to be that person.”
…..Second amendment? What second amendment?
Ironically, Holder was instrumental in the Ellian Gonzalez case where Elian, a 6 year old Cuban child living with his Miami relatives after his mother’s untimely death was brutally taken under gun point to be returned to his father who lived in Cuba.
Although a photo clearly showed a federal agent pointing a gun at the man who was holding the terrified child, Holder claimed that the federal agents sent to capture Gonzalez had acted “very sensitively.”
……………………………………………..4.) And let us not forget: Tom Daschle, proponent of failed Clinton health care plan is the new Health and Human Services Secretary. So that half of us will support the rest of us including 12-25 million non-taxpaying illegals. A taste of what is to come:
Daschle: “Congress could opt to go further… It could, for example, link the tax exclusion for health insurance to insurance that complies with the Board’s recommendation.”
Those last 19 words would spell the end of independent private-sector health care in America. Obviously, no health insurance would be sold if it were denied the tax deduction. Thus, every policy, every standard decided by this board would be the law of the land for every drug company, every hospital, every doctor and every health insurance company.
5.) And it would seem that Obama knows less about terrorism and its threat than the average 5 year old. In choosing Leon Panetta to head the CIA who is perhaps a great manager but was chosen, it seems, to weaken the CIA.
At a time when a highly and fanatically motivated enemy is watching and waiting to strike at the heart of all we hold dear, Mr. Obama seems to be sending the clear, unmistakable, and potentially ominous signal that the CIA is an entity to be managed and tempered.
We now move into the realm of B.O.’s far-reaching and long lasting errors: First, he passed with flying colors (not red, white or blue) his class on Politically Correct Terrorism 101.
And then there is the promise, in a year, to close Gitmo. Gitmo is a veritable honeymoon vacation for terrorists but Obama, ever more conscious of what he thinks he understands as the importance of a world view of America, feels that how America appears to others is far more imporant than our safety. He and the near-dementia Murtha would like to bring the terror-darlings into our country so they can be a suicide-bombing away from someone’s local community. If that were not enough, we are now reverting to the Army Field Manual in how we can interrogate those who have killed and still wish to kill us. B.O.’s naivete is dangerous indeed.
It’s as if he held the signing pen in his inaugural pocket and the far-left loony Pelosi and Reid had executive orders and rulings in their pockets to waste no time in putting forth their liberal agenda. B.O. rushed to reverse Bush’s ban on using tax-payer dollars to fund abortions overseas. Is it any surprise to anyone that this occurred one day after the anniversary of Roe vs. Wade ?
But the worst is B.O.’s stimulus package where 55% of the population will write a government check to 45% of the non tax-paying public. Once written into the system, the cost of this wide-spread welfare will only get worse.
Stay tuned for what is to come. On the short horizon: Amnesty for illegals (spelling the end of a two party system), the Fairness Doctrine (ensures the end of the first amendment), Free Choice Act (destroys privacy in union voting with “Card Check”)and the Freedom of Choice Act…(Abortion for every child at any point in term). Funny how all of these acts have the words free or fair in them and because they all represent big government control only serve to bind and restrict human rights and freedoms granted by our forefathers in the constitution–freedom of speech, freedom of privacy in voting, right to life for the unborn, etc. And the sad and scary part is that this is only the beginning. Obama has not even been in office one month.
Be afraid, conservative colleagues, be very afraid, but be vigilant.
