New York basically has a one party system and it will end up going the way of Detroit. When a tax and spend party has complete control with no one to offset the excesses, there will only be a tax and spend environment. That is how governments end up awash with corruption, debt, deficits, and a large, unsustainable welfare state – there is no opposition to keep it in check.
In the least, we are moving towards socialism.
Mr. Obama was put into office to be a socialist. He is there to fundamentally transform us from a Republic to a socialist democracy, which is why we hear Democrats often refer to the United States as a democracy even though we are a Republic.
The Democrats have done any number of things to ensure that Republicans are erased from the map. As one New York politician put it – one who was later indicted for corruption – we are going to redistrict them out of existence.
The reason the DOJ wants to allow voting without photo ID is to corrupt the vote. Ineligible voters are voting and we can expect a lot more. It seems to be part of the ground game.
Illegal immigrants are being shipped into “red states” instead of being deported and that is purposeful.
The idea of turning Texas and South Carolina blue is to end any hope Republicans might have of winning a presidential and vice presidential elections in the future.
The National Popular Vote has the same intent. The National Popular Vote Compact as it is called, would basically destroy the electoral college, allowing overwhelmingly Democratic cities the power to overwhelm the suburbs in elections.
White suburbs are a Democratic target. Mapping and redistribution are intended to shift the monies from the suburbs to the poor in the cities.
When Mr. Obama began his excessive over-spending, starting with the Stimulus, his minion Nancy Pelosi removed many welfare reforms with clauses to the bill. People no longer have to show they are looking for a job to collect, for example.
People are being invited here for entitlements. Mr. Obama has made certain that people coming here are given asylum whenever possible which brings with it a salary, food, housing, education, and a clothing allowance. Others are dropped off at bus stops.
The purpose of allowing massive illegal immigration is to ensure a permanent Democratic majority. The illegal aliens will be Democrats by an 8 to 1 margin according to a Pew Hispanic poll.
People coming illegally from over the border come from more than 100 countries and those who jump visas are coming from more countries than that. Forty percent of people here illegally have jumped visas. Nothing is being don to stop that either.
The Democrats reach out to people here illegally, promising them endless entitlements which they generally make good on. More than half – 57% – collect government benefits.
Unions and other far-left groups gather them up and teach them how to protest and riot if necessary.
Mr. Obama is solving the problem of illegal immigration of children, a problem he orchestrated, by giving attorneys to the children so they can remain in the U.S.; shipping illegal immigrant adults and children to remote areas of the U.S.; and paying off the corrupt dictators in Central America. It was a great excuse – maybe preplanned – to redistribute large sums of our money to Fifth World communists and socialists.
Buying the far-left labor unions and corporations is a way to control the vote. The unions fund Democratic campaigns and Democrats in turn pay them off with crony favors. The process has a name – crony socialism.
Mr. Obama has brutally dispatched the system of checks and balances. He does not believe in Congress, in negotiating, or in compromise.
He ignores Congress, using his pen and phone to issue executive orders, rules, memorandums, and guidance issuances to give his agencies powers they were never meant to have. Mr. Obama believes in legislating from the White House.
He is a globalist who believes the U.N. should be the world’s governing force and has plans to turn our sovereignty over to them one piece at a time.
By initiating stringent and unnecessary climate change regulations based on an incomplete science, he will be able to align the U.S. with the U.N. goals. Mapping by HUD also has that as its goal. The Democrats hope to redistribute the wealth and resources of neighborhoods to reach equity.
Common Core is based on a U.N. Marxist doctrine and a socialist Bill of Rights which is nothing more than a welfare/entitlement manifesto.
Obamacare is the largest power grab we have experienced to date – it is pure redistribution. The government now makes all decisions about your health. They decide what is important and who is important.
Mr. Obama has pushed for treaties that make us subservient to the U.N. He believes in the U.N.
Mr. Obama is attempting to circumvent Senate ratification of a small arms treaty and he has seceded U.S. authority to the International Criminal Court in a few cases.The Law of the SeaTreaty will also subject the U.S. to U.N. dominance.
Religion is now relegated to the government’s will. Freedom of religion is gone.
The government even controls the media, partly because they agree with his ideas but also because they are bullied into it.
Mr. Obama is nationalizing everything he can possibly nationalize from educational loans to education to energy to healthcare to water and land rights.
The independence of executive agencies is gone and every agency is politicized, even the Department of Justice, which sees its role as a social justice agency. The EPA is passing regulations meant to destroy the coal industry – to start. Mr. Obama is using the EPA to control business through climate change mandates.
The EPA is secretly mapping out land with the express purpose of stealing it.
The Department of the Interior is stealing land or regulating the land heavily, making much of it unusable.
The government doesn’t even care if the land is taken over by cartels.
The IRS has become a means by which the executive can punish dissenters. The FBI has spied on journalists and their families. All with impunity.
States Rights is an important tool in providing checks and balances on the executive, yet every chance Mr. Obama gets, he erodes their power. He takes every opportunity to bribe them with money as he did with Common Core or by passing new “rules” and bribing them as he did and continues to do with Obamacare.
When the Supreme Court rules in a way he finds unfavorable, he or his minions in the Congress simply find a path around the decision or sue the state or whoever is in their way.
The court system has been a way to check the executive branch but Mr. Obama through Harry Reid in the Senate has control over that. When Sen. Reid passed the nuclear option, it allowed Mr. Obama to flood the court system with his far-left judicial appointees, some of whom embrace communist ideals, most of whom are very outspoken about social justice and “emotions” as playing a necessary role in court decisions. It should only be the rule of law. All believe in legislating from the bench.
Mr. Obama currently has the majority of seats in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. He filled positions that didn’t even exist.
Whenever he gets caught looking feckless and inept, he moves to another topic which he hopes will distract the voters.
He tried to do it with the minimum wage and women’s rights but it wasn’t working well so he has switched to the economy. The unemployment numbers are down to 5.9% and the jobs numbers are up to 248,000. If those numbers hold, they are an improvement, finally, after six years.
However, all is not what it seems. We are actually moving from a First World to a Third World economy according to Paul Craig Roberts from whom I got the following numbers. We are becoming a welfare nation.
The were 97,000 fewer people in the labor force in September.
Nearly half of those workforce dropouts, 45,000, became the increase in the number of those who want a job but are not part of the labor force. That number is now 6,349,000, with nearly 2/3rds of the uncounted unemployed last looking for work over a year ago.
US corporations are investing in buying back their own stocks, not in new business ventures that produce new jobs.
According to the Census Bureau’s Poverty Report, US real median family income has declined to the level of twenty years ago.
Consumer credit and real retail sales are not growing.
We are looking at the workforce of a third world country with the vast bulk of the jobs in low-pay domestic service jobs. People working these part-time and independent contractor jobs cannot form a household or obtain a mortgage.
The baby boomers are the only part of the US labor force whose participation rate is rising.
Employment of Americans of prime working age (25-54) declined by10,000 jobs in September from the August level.
As the US labor force continues its transition from first world to third world, real median family income will continue to decline. Ladders of upward mobility will continue to be dismantled, and income and wealth will continue to concentrate in the pockets of the One Percent. America is truly a country run for the few.
From the year 2000, there has been an increase of 76 million adults not in the work force.
There are 110 million Americans receiving government benefits and 158 million in households that receive transfer payments of all types. (numbers from Paul Craig Roberts).
A record number of women—55,553,000—16 years and older are not participating in the labor force.
Yet the public won’t hear much about these details.
Mr. Obama’s ideology on U.S. exceptionalism and our insignificant place in the world never varies.
His political war in the Middle East with the enemy he won’t name will end quietly after the election. It’s not a serious war, it’s for show. He doesn’t believe the United States has an important place in the world. We are just a cog in the wheel of nations.
The United States is the last free nation and we are facing a crisis, one which could end with us looking just like the other socialist and communist nations in the world.
Obama was raised by communists. He was mentored by a pedophile communist – Franklin Marshall Davis.
About college, Barack Obama said this: “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and the structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night,in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism,Franz Fanon,Eurocentrism,and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society’s stifling constraints. We weren’t indifferent or careless or insecure.We were alienated.”
Mr. Obama spent twenty years in a Marxist church listening to Rev. Jeremiah Wright condemn whites, Jews and America.
He taught Alinsky methods in college. Alinsky was a socialist revolutionary.
Barack’s political beginnings took place in the living room of communist Bill Ayers and he lied about it. Ayers wasn’t the only one he hung around with over the years. He was a member of the Socialist party and he was promoted by Marxist politicians in Chicago.
Mr. Obama has enormous databases of information on everyone, political opponents, other Democrats, everyone. How do you think he will use them? We know he believes in spying indiscriminately.
Hillary is no better. She too was an Alinsky follower. She began her career working in a communist law firm in California. She was supportive of the Black Panthers.
As law professor Jonathan Turley, a liberal Democrat, said, “we are in the midst of a constitutional crisis.”
In his testimony before Congress, Turley said:
As someone who voted for President Obama and agrees with many of his policies, it is often hard to separate the ends from the means of presidential action. Indeed, despite decades of thinking and writing about the separation of powers, I have had momentary lapses where I privately rejoiced in seeing actions on goals that I share, even though they were done in the circumvention of Congress. For example, when President Obama unilaterally acted on greenhouse gas pollutants, I was initially relieved…
…Many have embraced the notion that all is fair in love and politics. However, as I have said too many times before Congress, in our system it is often more important how we do something than what we do. Priorities and policies (and presidents) change. What cannot change is the system upon which we all depend for our rights and representation.
Convenience has long been the enemy of principle in politics. It is not enough to refer to the value of a program to justify its extraconstitutional means. Such constitutional relativism cuts the entire system free of its moorings; leaving the system adrift in a sea of politics where the ability to act is treated as synonymous with the authority to act.
[…]…the Framers gave the Congress a variety of means to protect its institutional authority. However, these means have lost much of their vitality due to the changes in the federal government. Moreover, the Framers never expected Congress to be solely responsible for the maintenance of the separation of powers.
The current crisis is the result not simply of executive overreach but also of judicial avoidance in the face of that growing encroachment. The courts are now absent—without constitutional leave— in the midst of one of the most fundamental conflicts in the history of our country.
In the end, amnesty and illegal immigration are the irreversible path to a one party system. The U.S. can’t assimilate such extraordinarily large numbers of people from socialist and communist nations from all over the world who are being indoctrinated by the far-left the minute they come into the country.
Illegal immigrants – from all over the world – will in large numbers follow the familiar path and vote with the far-left Democrats who they see as allies.
Mr. Obama frequently refers to the United States as a democracy, not a Republic, as do many of his fellow Democrats (70 of whom are members of the Democratic Socialists of America):
In this clip, he calls our Republic a democracy:
There is a reason for that. He wants us to get used to the designation. The Republic is dead insofar as he is concerned.
For people who say it can’t happen here, it already is. We are being ruled by elite leftists and we are experiencing the beginnings of tyrannical rule under them, though they are the minority. They seek to make their ideology and governance permanent – no more choice like in Obamacare and in everything else they do.
Mr. Obama constantly lies, evades, and obfuscates to get what he wants. It is what Alinsky recommends because to these people the end justifies the means. Mr. Obama wants a one party system ruled by far-left wing elites. We will be fortunate to only be socialists in the future because the one thing that is certain with the far-left, it is never enough.
