Five Reasons Why I Don’t Like Obama

I have never liked Obama, not since the Democratic debates in 2008, before he even got the nomination. I saw too many things about him that I couldn’t support, that I couldn’t like, and that list has only gotten longer throughout his Presidency. But there are five top reasons why I don’t like him and never will, and no, none of them have to do with the color of his skin. The following reasons are listed in no particular order of importance; in fact, they are all equally important in my eyes. I know that I am about to tick off any of my readers who are fans of the 44th President, but that can’t be helped and I will make no apologies for doing so. Maybe some of you will see the truth in my reasons, and anyone who has followed my blog over the last two years knows that I stand for the truth in everything, always. At least, they should know that…

So here goes, my five reasons for not liking Obama…

1) He is a Marxist/socialist/globalist. Obama has made little secret of his Marxist leanings and his actions have shown that. He studied with Marxist terrorist Bill Ayers and still counts the Weather Underground founder as a close friend. He can quote Marxist writer Saul Alinsky whenever he likes. Obama has shown through the actions of his regime that he is an adherent to the idea of big, centralized government that supposedly has all of the answers to society’s ills. He has sworn to drastically reshape America to fit what he sees it should be, and he has been taking action to reduce America’s influence globally to fit in with the globalists’ vision of a one world government. That’s very dangerous thinking coming from the Oval Office.

2) He is a liar. There’s no two ways about it, the man is an inveterate liar and cannot be trusted to ever speak the truth. He has lied about his past. He has lied about his religion. He lied about Obamacare. He lied about the Fast and Furious program of selling guns to the Mexican drug cartels. He lied about Benghazi. He lied about the IRS targeting of conservative groups. At every turn Obama has chosen a lie over the truth, and while it is understandable that there may be occasions when it is advisable for a President to be disingenuous to advance America’s needs and security, Obama has set a standard of lying at every turn to cover his own backside and avoid taking responsibility for his actions. He is a pathological liar and has shown that he cannot be trusted in anything.

3) He is a dictator. I have often referred to Obama as Caesar because that is how he rules. Dictators always rule by decree, and his preference to governing through Executive Order rather than acts of Congress show him to be such a dictator in all but name. He not only has not kept to his presidential oath by upholding our Constitution, he has openly disregarded the Constitution with its separation of powers and he has openly declared that in his view the Constitution is dead and no longer valid. For over 200 years our Constitution has served as the basis for this republic and served it well, yet Obama has suddenly declared the Constitution to be worthless. No, his reign has all of the hallmarks of a dictatorship save for martial law, and I believe that will be coming by the end of the year, for he will use any pretext to dissolve Congress and suspend the Constitution, both of which actions Executives Orders, or decrees, have authorized him to do for any reason. This is why I believe that he is the most dangerous threat facing America today and our freedoms. Watch him closely and follow his actions, not his propaganda.

4) He is a Muslim. I have been saying since at least the 2008 Democratic convention that he was a Muslim and events have proven me right. Don’t be fooled by his attending Jeremiah Wright’s church for several years, that was just a smokescreen to make Americans believe he was a Christian. I knew from his name that he was a Muslim, for when young black men convert to Islam they almost always choose an Islamic name for themselves; both Barack and Hussein are common Arabic names for men. But even more damning as a Muslim are his actions and associations since becoming President. He has openly appointed Muslims to key positions within his administration, including Iranian-born Muslim Valerie Jarrett as White House Chief of Staff and another Muslim as a key advisor high within the Depart of Homeland Security. He has backed away from a long time ally, Israel, and taken up the Palestinian cause. He publicly supports the actions of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, including openly supporting Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi and then when the Egyptian army deposed Morsi in answer to public outcry Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood against the Egyptian military, an organization which has been a stabilizing factor in Egypt since Britain gave the Egyptians their independence. Obama even admitted in a TV interview that he was a Muslim, but all of the mainstream media ignored that. Everything he has said and done in office when it comes to relations with Muslim nations has been done from a Muslim viewpoint, from abandoning Iraq to releasing five top Taliban commanders in exchange for the token release of one deserter who converted to Islam. He is a Muslim and that makes him a traitor to America, for he supports or at least downplays the actions of the very radical Muslims that we have been fighting for 13 years.

5) He is the most corrupt President in American history. The level of corruption within Obama’s administration have sunken to levels usually seen in Third World countries. From all of the lies and obfuscation regarding his iffy birth certificate and faked social security card to Fast and Furious. From the corrupt nature of Obamacare to the IRS targeting scandal to Benghazi. Every action taken by this administration has been self-serving and designed to enrich either key government officials or favored private sector executives. Even his rule by Executive Order is a form of corruption as it totally disregards the Constitution in order to further his agenda. Obama has more fishy deals under his belt and more treacherous actions to cover up of any American President in our history, even more than the left’s favorite whipping boy of all time Nixon. Obama has set a pattern of corruption that shows no sign of ending, but that shouldn’t be surprising since he is a Chicago politician and they have a long history of corruption scandals. And what is Obama’s answer to the scandals that are plaguing him? He plays golf and takes vacations; so far in five years the Obamas have burned up well over $44,000,000 in taxpayer money on vacations, at a time when most of us are struggling to make ends meet. The President needs to either rein in the corruption or accept the consequences of his actions and face impeachment.

So those are my five reasons for not liking Obama. I could easily expand that list as there are many aspects of him and his presidency that I don’t like, but those are my top five and they will do for now. All of these reasons are supported by facts easily accessible and by reasoning that is right on track. If I pissed you off so be it, as I said I will make no apologies. I just hope that enough of you read this article with an open mind to make some small difference in the world.

As always, peace and blessings to you, my friends.

Putin’s Ukrainian Gamble

We’re now weeks into the standoff between Russia and the Ukraine, and the situation is still balanced precariously between a diplomatic solution and outright war. The annexation of the Crimea is complete, 40,000 Russian troops are massed along Ukraine’s eastern border, and Russian fighter jets are buzzing the lone U.S. warship in the Black Sea. Limited sanctions have been slapped on Russia to no avail. What can be done to resolve this tense situation?

Nothing.

Oh there are of course actions that could be taken to discourage Putin from any further adventuring in the Ukraine, but the West lacks the political will to take those steps. One destroyer in the Black Sea will not deter Putin, nor will five fighter jets in the Baltic States; all those amount to are token shows of the flag. Widespread sanctions will not deter Putin; he could care less and all he has to do is seek closer economic ties with China to get out from under the West’s sanctions. Even the Ukraine cannot deter Putin, as we saw this week when a Ukrainian army unit meekly surrendered to unarmed civilians. No, Putin has a free hand open to him in the Ukraine and he knows it.

Ukraine has been an important part of Russian defensive strategy for over two hundred years, and during the days of the Russian Empire it was Russia’s frontline against any moves by the faltering Ottoman Empire. Ukraine gained its independence briefly after the Russian revolution that swept the Communists into power, but lost it again shortly after the end of the Russian civil war. Stalin persecuted the Ukraine mercilessly during the early 1930s and starved millions of Ukrainians to death in retribution for Ukrainian agitation for independence. During the long years of the Cold War the Ukraine was strategically important as a prop for the Eastern Bloc, and once the Ukraine regained its independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union it was a loss keenly felt in Moscow. Putin would dearly love to regain control over the Ukraine as a bulwark of Russia’s defenses against the EU and NATO, both of which have welcomed former Eastern Bloc nations like Poland, the Baltic States and Romania into their ranks.

In the current crisis we have ethnic Russians in the eastern Ukraine calling for Moscow’s intervention, and I don’t doubt that Russian intelligence and special forces troops are active in the eastern Ukraine fomenting the unrest. Kiev’s hands are pretty much tied in the matter since the Ukrainian army is so ineffective, and since Putin has threatened to invade if Kiev cracks down on the ethnic Russians in the east. It’s the same old argument and reasoning that Adolf Hitler used in 1938 to absorb much of Czechoslovakia – military intervention is necessary to protect the Russians living in eastern Ukraine. Putin sees this as his golden opportunity to regain a part of what was lost, and the Crimea was just the opener and the test of the West’s resolve to protect the Ukraine against Russian aggression. That resolve has been shown to be sadly lacking.

The only deterrence that would induce Putin to keep his well-trained and effective army behind Russian borders is strength, and the West currently lacks that strength. The EU is still in the long process of getting its collective feet under it and is incapable of taking unified action against Russian aggression; any EU military action in 20 years has consisted of actions taken by its member states such as Germany, and none of those states is strong enough to pose a credible threat to Russian ambitions. Only America has the potential strength to deter Putin from taking further actions, and from the White House down we are proving to be weak. Caesar Barack Hussein Obama can bluster and threaten all he wants to but Putin knows that Obama lacks the resolve to stand toe to toe with Russia and not blink. Our showing of American military force in Eastern Europe has only been token to say the least. While this crisis continues for week after week the talk from the White House and the Defense Secretary is that we need to further reduce our forces to levels even lower than Bill Clinton did. (Ever wonder why so many Reserve and National Guard units had to serve full-time in Iraq and Afghanistan? It’s due strictly to the deep cuts to our military enacted under President Clinton when the world was still agog that the Soviet Union had fallen apart.) Why, we are even pulling the last of our armored divisions out of Europe for the first time since WWII!

So the Ukraine is effectively on its own. Only direct military intervention could prevent the Russians from doing whatever they like in Ukraine, and I don’t see that intervention coming. The government in Kiev has asked the UN to send peacekeepers into the eastern Ukraine in an attempt to quell the unrest and discourage Russia from invading, but will those peacekeepers ever arrive? It’s doubtful since that move would need the approval of the UN Security Council, where Russia has veto power. So even the UN may not be able to help. Russia can seize eastern Ukraine anytime it wants to and Putin knows it.

So Vladimir Putin’s Ukrainian gamble will pay off and he will get his way. It’s a sad time for the Ukraine and all Ukrainians everywhere.
