Dangerous Times: Obama the Betrayer
American Thinker, by James Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:geo11, 7/5/2014 3:58:32 AM

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Which of those solemn promises has Barack H. Obama not betrayed? I can’t think of a single one. If Obama is different from other presidents, it’s not for the color of his skin, which is just a PR hustle to blackmail suckers into proving they aren’t racists. No: Obama will be historic for his fanatical leftism, which has no precedent in American history. The biggest headline

Comments:
We have a President that believes that the US and its Constitution is evil and has set out destroy both.

FTA:...Obama has shown utter contempt for the U.S. Constitution, for our military, and for the crucial duties of the Department of Justice, the Border Patrol, and the IRS. ..

And thanks to the media in his pocket, and low information obama phone citizens he is getting away with it.

Apt comment from American Thinker poster:

Sure, Obama is the figurehead for the American demise, but I´ll say it again: Atonement-infected, self-flagellating Whites and malcontented, insatiable Blacks voted for "change in America". Obama didn´t "fly solo" on this.

So what exactly is the purpose of the President ´s oath of office then? Isn´t it the equivalent of a signed contract whose specific terms are being agreed to by the oath? And if the oath taker doesn´t comply, why isn´t that in and of itself a cause for impeachment and removal from office?

Either enforce it or get rid of it as a meaningless anachronism.

Maybe because the oath was sworn on a bible, which, I suspect, he doesn´t believe in either, it, the oath, is meaningless to him as well.

Were you aware the undocumented Lord Obama has recently been "initiated" into one of America´s most "exclusive" societies?...Some of it´s "well-known" members, past and present, include Benedict Arnold...Ms. Jane Fonda...Aldrich Ames...Tokyo Rose...Axis Sally...Ethel & Julius Rosenberg...Robert Hansen...and Aaron Burr.

President POS. the unleader, is so arrogant and so hellbent in his divisive priorities, policies and attitude that he´s achieving escape velocity from reality. The man is powerful and the man is sick. Congress is weak and the co-opted news media is corrupt. This democracy is in uncharted waters.

Internal intimidation --- The Chicago Way aka The Soviet Way --- is key to obama´s success. With over two million federal employees in the various agencies, the threat of firing keeps everyone in line, not just his appointed leftist shock troop exec´s --- the Lois Lerners --- that have infested every agency of the Executive Branch. The underlings value their inflated wages, benefits and bonuses, so they, in fear, toe the line and implement the policies their bosses command with ever more fervor and ever more power. And there is time pressure... Elections are coming and there is so much to do and little time to get it done before the voters back them off, or throw them out. And so they are bizzy, bizzy, bizzy.

Read "The Jihad Candidate" by Rich Carroll, June, 2008. In a brief four page article, he clearly enumerates almost all of the reasons for not electing Obama. For most of us here, the article will merely reiterate what our own research uncovered; however, there are some surprises.

Obama must be stopped...by whatever means necessary.

This article is depressing and I wish I could disavow it but there is too much in it that is accurate. Even within Obama´s support for anti-american forces there is inconsistency, viz, "Obama has supported mass-killing regimes in the Middle East against more moderate, stabilizing rulers: Mubarak, Gaddafi (much better than today’s civil war in Libya), Maliki (ditto for Iraq), Karzai (ditto for Afghanistan). Instead, Obama consistently favors al-Qaeda-linked killer gangs in Syria and the biggest sponsor of terrorism, Iran." These two groups, al-Qaeda and Iran, are enemies and Obama tilts towards both. The only thing the two have in common is hatred for the United States, Israel, and Western Civilization. The notion that a President is that much an enemy is anathema to me. But, what other conclusion can I draw if he favors these two enemies who have only hatred for us in common?

There was ample evidence out there showing Obama was wrong for the job. In spite of that, over 100 million people voted for him twice. Nothing has changed much among the voting population so a hard core lefty can be elected again.

Not sure it can be fixed. Ask yourself why people voted for Obama. There are many reasons.

Speaking of the oath and it being made on the Bible brings up the question, "Why was a mistake made twice in the ´public´ oath that demanded a second and accurate oath be taken later in private with no witnesses?" On what document was that second oath taken and why so secretive? Who really is Chief Justice Roberts? Where is the uproar about all this?

Our country is beyond repair. Any attempt to fix US will be like an inch of bondo filling a bashed in fender when it should be replaced with OEM (Constitutional) parts.

If there was evidence in 2008 that 0bama was unfit for the job, in 2012 there was a beyond any doubt plain proof positive. Granted Romney was not perfect but politics is not about perfection but practical choices. What on earth prompted 52%, not less, Americans to commit this ritual suicide remains beyond rational understanding. These people still have the right to vote and will turn up in ´14 and ´16. That is the critical problem all thinking Americans should be pondering this Fourth.

Before we take on this madman who is indeed our enemy, we must throw off all of the beliefs we have in our government and our laws. Not too many people are prepared to do that but once the killing starts, once we see what we are really up against, it will become easy. We are still in a state of shock and disbelief at what the enemy has accomplished so far, but we will soon get over it.

A friendly U.S. military will be an asset, they hate obama and his hand-picked cronies in uniform. There are millions of vets out here who have served under honorable men, not the bootlickers of today and we know what it´s all about. Somebody in the government recently stated that vets can be dangerous subversives. We will eventually prove him right when we take back this country.

Since he is a betrayer, as is the AG, he needs to be impeached. There is no getting around his lawlessness. He needs to go! I would like to sue him personally and perhaps we can make a class action suit out of it.Simple case. As citizens and legal residents we have to live by and within laws. Why is it that the clown and supposed presidents does not live by our laws but is above them. What kind of rubbish is this? Kenyan laws?
He feels American laws doe not apply to him, Mr. Former Community Organizer, then he is not qualified as president since he is not upholding his oath of office!

Intriguing. We all know what happened to Chris Stevens. Was the attack on the consulate in Benghazi a deliberate means of keeping him quiet? It wouldn´t surprise me.

Electing Obama in 2008 was shocking enough. Re-electing him in 2012 was a disaster. America is in real trouble, thanks to the 65.5 million voters who re-elected him.

The mixture of Communist agitators and Muslims is very dangerous. My hope is that Caliph Ibrahim will take Mecca and Medina before turning to US. It would be poetic justice for the Saudis and the Iranians.

This is a great column and a good reminder of just what´s been going on inside the Obama presidency. It´s stunning what Obama has gotten away with ´before our very eyes´ - and it´s clear our situation is dire. It´s frightening and extremely worrisome - especially so - since he planned it that way.

If only someone or some group could ´do something´, as millions of us here in America are scared to death and feeling helpless. What the hell happened to our three branches of government and the so-called ´checks and balances´ that should curtail or stop this runaway freight train?

The Madness of 2008

America is suddenly angry at the laxity, incompetence, and polarizing politics of the Obama administration, the bad optics of the president putting about in his bright golf clothes while the world burns. Certainly, no recent president has failed on so many fronts — honesty, transparency, truthfulness, the economy, foreign policy, the duties of the commander-in-chief, executive responsibilities, and spiritual leadership. For those who are “shocked” at the present meltdown, of a magnitude not seen since the annus horribilis of 1979, in their defense: Obama certainly did not campaign on a new health-care plan that would force Americans to give up the

How Best Not to Respond to ISIS

For the left, American power must never be exercised except in the direst of situations, and even then, it must not be a unilateral exercise of power. This is the logic underlying the White House response to ISIS, or the Islamic State, as it calls itself. At this time, the U.S. military has the capacity to obliterate this gang of thugs with a relatively modest projection of force. If the administration continues to drag its feet, it will be much harder. Yet Obama continues to drag his feet, because he believes that America “leads from behind.”

Challenging times call for extraordinary courage. But at the risk of sounding indelicate, the only cojones associated with President Obama are the ones lined up on the putting green, where his frequent appearances have given rise to a new meaning of the term “stay the course.” You’d think the so-called leader of the free world would at least sound courageous. But at recent press conferences, Mr. President has sauntered in, often late, leaned nonchalantly on the podium, and delivered a lackluster “lecture” in a tone of voice more peremptory than somber. His record for ambiguity and dullness reached a nadir of

August 22 is another deadline for the Obama administration’s IRS officials to come clean about their clear malfeasance in office. Judge Emmet Sullivan, who has acted sua sponte to compel IRS officials to provide all the details surrounding the “lost” e-mails, has the reputation of a judicial pit bull, a federal judge who insists that his orders and his office be treated with proper respect. Placing himself directly in the middle of this scandal, Judge Sullivan has removed the favored riposte by the left: attack the questioner. Sullivan is a black jurist from Howard University, perhaps the most respected black university

A brutal natural experiment is underway demonstrating the role of race, riots, and radicals in determining whose death is noted, and whose ignored in racialized America when unarmed young men are shot and killed by police. While American and world media, along with the President and Attorney General of the United States, obsess over the death of Michael Brown at the hands of the Ferguson, Missouri police, few people outside of Utah have heard of the remarkably parallel and contemporaneous death of Dillon Taylor, an unarmed young man (and father-to-be) from a gun shot by a Salt Lake City policeman,

Spreading from front page to two-thirds of an inside page, the New York Times, in its Aug. 18 edition, goes all out to document the miseries of life in Gaza. Jerusalem bureau chief Jodi Rudoren, reporting from Gaza City, informs readers that “telltale signs of the displaced are everywhere in Gaza”. (“In Torn Gaza, If Roof Stands, It’s Now Home”) And, very diligently, she doesn’t miss any of these signs. In her piece, a lawyer’s office becomes a makeshift home for kids.

I´m amazed at how openly racist black Liberals have become, and how few non-blacks are willing to call them out on it. I was waiting to be interviewed on CNN the other night, and I was listening in advance of my appearance to an interview of a Missouri legislator said to Don Lemmon, [pp] "The way for Ferguson Missouri to improve public relations is to have more black cops." Can you imagine the reaction if a city asked for more white cops? This call for "blackness" as an answer to what´s plaguing the black community is happening a lot, and quite frankly is

One reason predictions of a Mitt Romney victory in 2012 were inaccurate, say analysts, is that the turnout among certain Democrat constituencies — in particular blacks and Hispanics -- was greater than expected. And what a significant factor this is! Whether we call it getting out the vote, having a great “ground game” or just turnout, it can make or break an election. But while the phrase “getting out the vote” is well understood, there is a lesser known election strategy: getting in the vote. What’s the difference? While the former involves getting as many as possible of the set number

It’s not true, as his critics like to say, that the president who went to Cairo to tell the world his election heralded great new things for the Middle East now has nothing to show for it. When the history books are written, they will credit Barack Obama for making Richard Nixon look like Moses. Forty years ago this evening, in a televised address to the nation, Nixon told the American people that, effective noon the next day, “I shall resign the presidency.” Since then the man’s failings have been exhaustively chronicled, and on this sorry anniversary they’ve once again been dragged out

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week. [Snip] In the president’s exact words: “We don’t have a strategy yet.” When that bizarre statement hit the news outlets, the White House spin team flew into full-on operation (ie panic) mode and began tweeting to the effect that what the Commander-in-Chief had actually meant was that there was “a range of options” which were still

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.

At a fundraiser in the home of an occasional Obama golf partner and former president of UBS Investment Bank, Obama spoke before an audience paying $15,000 a couple to bask in his aura.Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They want to hear more Obama, and they can afford his policies. Speaking before a friendly crowd, Obama delivered real value. He achieved new depths of inanity. He actually said this without provoking howls of laughter. (The very rich are different from you and me). Justin Sink reports in the Hill:
