Obama Isn't "Cool" – He's Cold and Ruthless

Thursday night, Bill O’Reilly had a segment of his show dealing with the 8-year anniversary of 9-11.  Lt. Colonel Ralph Peters was O’Reilly’s guest, and he commented on how unfortunate it is that the details and the horror of this pivotal event in American history have been muted and nearly forgotten in the minds of far too many Americans.  Certainly, as Peters observed, while the mainstream media have been loath to remind viewers of the details regarding this horror, they have eagerly reported virtually any story about alleged assaults on the civil liberties of enemy combatants held at Guantanemo. Similarly, any opportunity to portray the recent Bush administration as corrupt has not been missed. Peters went further, stating that we now have a President who seems unconcerned with the pain or the lessons of 9-11.

When O’Reilly responded that saying this about Obama “might not be fair”, Lt. Colonel Peters responded:

“Well that’s YOUR opinion, Bill.  After 8 years, we still haven’t rebuilt Ground Zero.  Al Qaeda attacked us, not the Taliban.  That’s who we should be going after.”

O’Reilly:  “So you don’t give the President any credit for continuing the war in Afghanistan?

Peters:  “None whatsoever.  He made a campaign promise regarding Afghanistan, and now he’s confused by it.”

Col. Peter’s statement has merit, and further illustrates how O’Reilly is willing to bend over backwards to give Obama the benefit of the doubt where he clearly doesn’t deserve it.  After all, many analysts have noted over the past few months that Al Qaeda’s leadership is no longer in Afghanistan. Furthermore, Obama is a man who repeatedly criticized the previous administration during the presidential campaign for “taking its eye off the ball” (i.e., diverting resources to the Iraq War at the expense of the conflict in Afghanistan). Having cast Afghanistan as the “good war,” Obama apparently feels he has little choice but to continue it, however half-heartedly, even though polls now show that a majority of Americans oppose our presence there.

Both Rush Limbaugh and Peggy Noonan have noted Obama’s eerily cold demeanor on various occasions; I submit that not only is this observation accurate, but that it offers us a window into his soul — the soul of a calculating, ruthless radical who will stop at nothing to enact his Marxist agenda. His recent national speech on health care was a case in point.  Newsreal’s bloggers have analyzed it exhaustively here, here, and here.  To say that the speech was partisan and disingenuous is an understatement.  It was nothing less than a tour de force of calculated deception.  Despite the President’s repeated insistence that “This isn’t about me,” the obvious truth is that it is ALL about him and his accretion of political power.

As The Heritage Foundation has noted, if the President were simply interested in providing the chronically-uninsured with health-care coverage, this could be accomplished at a small fraction of the cost of any of the bills that are now being considered in Congress.  Similarly, he appears entirely unconcerned that the unemployment rate is now at a 26-year high, with youth unemployment currently at an all-time high.  Indeed, he credits his administration’s policies for “bringing our economy back from the brink,” and assures Americans that “we are certainly moving in the right direction”.

The unpleasant but necessary conclusion one must accept about this President is that he is deliberately sabotaging our economy because it serves to further his agenda of ever-increasing control over Americans’ lives and the redistribution of wealth to its “rightful owners.” Anyone who doubts that Obama and his advisors, in particular Rahm Emanuel, are thoroughly familiar with the Cloward-Piven Strategy — the strategy of orchestrated crisis — needs to become familiar with it themselves and then consider the actions taken to date by this administration.  Far from being distressed by the worsening economic conditions, the ugly truth is that Obama welcomes this state of affairs; he is doing everything in his power to promote its continuance, and nothing to reverse it.  To deny this is necessarily to ascribe to this President a level of staggering economic illiteracy which is simply incredible.

Fortunately there exists a highly-motivated minority of Americans who recognize these facts and understand the danger posed to our nation by this administration. They are the tea-party protestors and the members of The 9-12 Project and similar groups who will be converging on Washington this weekend.  As President Obama watches the protests this Saturday, perhaps he would be wise to consider Proverbs 16:18: “Pride goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”

    Well said!

    And, what’s with O’Reilly being mister “give them the benefit of the doubt” so much with Obama. He’s been like this since the interview he did with Obama. Has the great O’Reilly been captivated by Obama’s charm?

    From what the intelligence community has said, Al-Queda has been hiding in the tribal regions of Pakistan. It was my understanding that at one time, that Al-Queda was funded by the Taliban. However, since the Taliban and Al-Queda are both muslim organizations, I would posit that we could put an end to both wars by simply nuking Mecca, Medina, and the al-aqsa mosque. In fact, that’s what I’ve been suggesting since 9/11.

    Russia was in Afghanistan for years. It financially devastated them and they had to finally pull out without winning.

    Afghanistan……. where powerful nations go to die.

    I think that Obama’s Marxist persona is a front to sucker in american Socialists and marxists. I beleive that his real purpose is Jihad.

    Everything he is doing seems to be designed to ruin America and he is not in the least trying to hide his duplicity. Consider:

    * It is OK for Iran and other coutnries to use nuclear energy biut not the United States
    * He is diminishing and destroying American industry whether it is nationalizing banks and the car industry or makign us uncompetitive with the “capa nd trade” bill that will have about zero effect on the worlds pollution or temperature.
    * He is distancing himself from traditional American Allies and trying to align us with Iran, syria, Hizbullah, Hamas, Venezuela and Cuba.
    * He is totally diregarding the Constitution, creating a shadow government of radical and kooky Czars.
    * Diminishing our defense – for example killing the F-22 fighter plane needed to combat the latest Russiana nd Chines planes/

    I can’t think of anything that he has done to make the U.S. militarily, diplomaticaly or industrialy stronger.

    It does appear as if our country is being sabotaged from within. $780 Billion of our money with only a handful of government jobs to show for it. Where is our money? $100 Billion per year on a war that serves only to see our troops and Afghan civilians die? Billions to “save” a car company only to see it handed over to the Unions? An Obama national civilian security force better funded and more powerful than our own military? Our returning vets being included with almost half of middle America being targeted as potential domestic terrorists? Acorn and Unions used as goon squads to intimidate and silence opposition? Acorn and Unions awarded access to massive amounts of our money? A healthcare bill that gives union retirees 10 Billion and they are exempt from healthcare tax? Countless Czars accountable to no one?A media that appears to deliberately hide the facts and the flaws as they try to nurture and protect a presidential ‘cult of personality’. The man who Louis Farrahkan of the Nation of Islam triumphantly referred to as “the Messiah”.

    I think Bill O’Reilly has a strategy. He is letting Glenn Beck and others do the heavy lifting on the Obama “bashing”. Eventually, he will join the frey and at that time he feels his opinion will carry more weight because he gave Obama a chance, seemingly. Besides, the MSM would bash O’Reilly if he appeared partisan from the beginning. He is doing what it takes to survive and still get his message across.

    For what it’s worth, I totally agree that Obama wants the U.S. to fail and I’m glad some people are finally waking up. If not for Beck et. al, I think O’Reilly would be less Obama-friendly so It’s not necessarily bad that O’Reilly has this strategy.

    All one has to do is look at the facts: even a first year amatur economist knows that Obama is doing the exact opposite of whats needed to get us back on track and/or to keep America strong. Obama admitted that America needs to be brought down to a level to where we are more in-step with other Countries rather than being on top and number one.

    I believe Obama is sabbotaging America; I think that if the people do not rise up and stop him, we will not have an America in three years. At this rate of speed, Obama could have us completely destroyed in the next three years of his presidency. People are wide awake now, and are organizing to get this traitor out of the White House.

    Besides the 9-12 Project, there are several others who are working to do the same thing;
    even American mothers have come together in the literal millions to oppose Obama. A
    website has been set up so that moms and grandmoms can organize by State and by Community:

    Everyone, even democrats should be paying attention: if you are not in the immediate power circle of Obama, you can do all the butt-kissing you want, but you will not benefit at all by anything Obama is doing: you will be just like the rest of us: you will lose your freedoms and your rights to just about everything, so don’t be stupid. Think about it. You
    better be related to Rahm Emmanuel, or else you are shooting yourself in the foot by helping Obama.

    Obama cares nothing about you. His own blood brother lives in what looks like a chicken coop in Indonesia – no plumbing, no electric, no medicines or medical care, no food, poorer than a church mouse – and when Obama went to visit him during the Campaign, that little brother BEGGED HIM FOR HELP. The response from Obama was to go to the Indonesian Govt and request that they THREATEN THE BOY WITH JAIL IF HE SPEAKS TO ANY AMERICAN REPORTERS EVER AGAIN. Obama STILL hasn’t sent the boy so much as a sandwich. (Republicans including Sarah Palin sent him $2000.00 – those rotten Repubs).

    Then there’s Obama’s grandmom who lives in Kenya. Obama visited her, too, during the Campaign. Now its customary in the Village that if someone in your family “makes it”, that they come back and contribute to the Village. Obama promised that his contribution would be to build a wonderful new school. So the village folks made a big sign and posted it where the school would be built. Then they praised his grandmom and thanked her and Barack by going WITHOUT FOOD and putting the money into installing actual plumbing and electric to the grandmom’s hut. NOW, 22 MONTHS LATER, THERES NO SCHOOL AND NOT ONE BRICK HAS BEEN MOVED TO BUILD ONE. Obama doesn’t respond to his grandmoms calls. The woman is being scorned by the Villagers and SHE MAY BE THROWN OUT OF HER VILLAGE.
    She is now a disgraced, very upset old woman.

    To Jan, Michael, and Janice….

    I have to agree with you, and in Jan’s first paragraph she speaks of bringing America to the same level as other countries….

    I have something that may interest you….Tonight I read an article which I had not heard previously anywhere..It’s a bit scary, but totally in line with our admin. plan to control the internet- it also gives “O: the opportunity to pass the buck, and let other countries tell us what we can and can’t say online…

    This a story about our internet tech. being sold by America so other countries can compete with the E.U, America, etc……they want the U.N. to be able to use it for their ommunication, and blah,blah,blah..

    Just read it!
    I would love to know your take on it….As I see it, as of 09/09 our .com, .nets., and .orgs will no longer be in our control….
    With Obama’s vision of global/universal healthcare-I can totally see him falling for this one, too!
    I never heard that our internet tech. was expiring in Sept of 2009, did you?
    …..It seems this issue snuck in thru the back door while our Admin. was rewritting the Patriot Act. …. and flying off to sell America to the Olympics…

    Here ya go, for anyone interested.

    I have basicly lost family and friends as far as telling the truth a few yrs ago. now I get plenty of emails and yes,,America is waking up. I can remember how Islam promised to have their flag over the white house and take us down from the inside about that..and yes America is waking up, take the tea doesn’t show them but wall to wall people have taken part in each of the states. I don’t think mr O can bring enough fake votes next time around, for America is awake and they know that some terror attack will be inside this time,,to put more fear and control the people..While Americans go hungry, loose jobs , homes and out sourced jobs and now the dust bowl in our bread basket, calif..can get no water..and people should send those pink slips to the states that are to talk for us but don’t. Anybody in their right mind better realize the number for the bailout was taken out of thin air..and the ammount could have paid off every mortgage in America and given health care to many without. to try to act like they are sorry, America best look at who all signed the bailout..then you will know, conservitive is dead and anyone who doesn’t see both sides working it..are blind as bats. First thing O did was send money to Pakistan, and the PLO and even yet our troops are training the enemy for the world they are working on the brown shirts. every step Hitler did you would think all would see the plan which is in plain site. Socialism is communism ..face it. there is going to be a bloody revolution..and like our forefathers said, give me liberity or give me death. G-d did not give us a spirt of fear..stand up and be counted..fight the good fight for yourself, for your children. We have a chance to change it..oh that word change.. but we must act and take our country back. there are 545 freaks in gov, put there by many of us..and there are 330 million not counting ilegals. kick them out, impeach them. say NO…an act instead of talk. we can do it and we must..last things they want is free speach. medical another way to control..telling us what to think..and remember the global warming is the bigest lie too and oil is what G-d gave us and men only put 2% of carbon in our air..The think that is destroying the earth is the TNT bombs hitting the moon. rockets shot into space..notice how Russia said they could keep it from snowing in the city..The only ones who tell the truth in media is Joseph Farah on an, Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs and I think you know the rest..but remember…there are soicalim on both sides..planted for your vote the wrong way.. How much do we all have to loose to see and stand up and fight the good fight??? America has a the right thing. and while you are at it, read Gen 12:3 and many more..stand with Israel..G-d doesn’t are either on HIS side or the wrong side as no one can sit on the fence. Pray, act,,do it today..

    KIM-you’re spot-on!-

    Does everyone know that it’s Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week-in America?
    Do you really care?
    I don’t but then again I do…..because of what Geert Wilder said in New York as a warning to America…He came to tell us that the U.S. is in tremendous danger and I quote, ”

    We might be in the final stages of the Islamization of Europe . This not only is a clear and present danger to the future of Europe itself, it is a threat to America and the sheer survival of the West. The United States as the last bastion of Western civilization, facing an Islamic Europe .
    If you haven’t already heard or read Geert Wilder’s speech…”Last Man Standing”….here is the link….take it to heart-as Kim said, It’s not too late for America, if we start now!

    Another reliable source to listen to in the media, especially if you want to understand Bible Prophecy and how it relates to what’s happening today is;

    He has a great article on Asylum Seekers, and another on Honor Killings In America…and keeps a daily “Breaking News” report /watch on our world’s time-clock, ISRAEL~

    I’ll close with a quote from one of our founding fathers..

    “Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we
    received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right
    to receive from us.”

    Thomas Jefferson (Declaration of the Causes and Necessities of Taking up Arms, 6

    July 1775)

    There is no time like now to let your voices be heard!

    The great O’Reilly was captivated by Obama’s (false) charm when he had the first interview some time ago. It shows through each time there is a mention of Obama on the O’Reilly show. He seems to overlook the truth concerning this President. As for Barrack Obama, he has from the beginning, been a “snake in the grass” waiting to strike.

    Jihadists are a tool of the neo-communists. It’s all in history. The Romans used the Vandals and others peoples as mercinaries even though they were enemies of Rome. It was a dangerous and fatal error on the Romans part. Their arrogance and apathy cost them their empire. The Vandals sacked Rome several times (at will) when the senate did not fulfill their demands. Rome had to move their capitol to a different city at one point. Simply because one political ideology was willing to subvert the entire empire to get their way. I am not implying that the neo-communists are directly conspiring with jihadists against this country. I do feel as though their policies are making it very easy for them (jihadists) to attack though. The question is, is it deliberate or just stupidity?

    …and the British in the 19th century (read about Maiwand, and the long trek to Jalalabad), and Alexander the Great’s experience there as well. Along with the Russians, all “modern” armies that got run out by those “backward” tribes and warlords. Maybe we’ll figure it out, maybe we won’t. Right now, I’d pu my money on “won’t”.

    The media is owned by Socialist(!) capitalists, i.e. rich, reactionary Democrats who long ago stopped working for America and now only do it for THEMSELVES! Cf. George Soros – a basket case from his early teens -but apparently beholden to the idea that anything applies as capitalism as long as you are sufficiently immoral!!
    Well, read Michael Novak’s book ‘Business as a Calling’ and you’ll understand what this economic philosophy was meant to BE…before the Madoffs and the Enrons + Lehmans perverted it!
