Is the U.S. Military Preparing to Court Martial Christians?

(Todd Starnes) -- Religious liberty groups have grave concerns after they learned the Pentagon is vetting its guide on religious tolerance with a group that compared Christian evangelism to “rape” and advocated that military personnel who proselytize should be court martialed.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is calling on the Air Force to enforce a regulation that they believe calls for the court martial of any service member caught proselytizing.
President Mikey Weinstein and others from his organization met privately with Pentagon officials on April 23. He said U.S. troops who proselytize are guilty of sedition and treason and should be punished – by the hundreds if necessary – to stave off what he called a “tidal wave of fundamentalists.”
“Someone needs to be punished for this,” Weinstein told Fox News. “Until the Air Force or Army or Navy or Marine Corps punishes a member of the military for unconstitutional religious proselytizing and oppression, we will never have the ability to stop this horrible, horrendous, dehumanizing behavior.”
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told Fox News he was stunned that the Pentagon would be taking counsel and advice from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
“Why would military leadership be meeting with one of the most rabid atheists in America to discuss religious freedom in the military,” Perkins said. “That’s like consulting with China on how to improve human rights.” Continue reading via Fox News Radio...
President Obama Evidently Hates America

Note:  You might want to start at the Barack Obama Index Page, especially if you arrived here by using a search engine.

This page is a byproduct of another nearby page about President Obama's Intentions for America.  It is sad to see someone in the White House who has such obvious contempt for American traditions, and especially for free-market capitalism and individual liberty.

Evidently Obama hates America

He is the stock market's worst nightmare, he is way too friendly with the Muslims and the homosexuals and the abortionists, and apparently his America-hating pastor — whose "church" he attended for 20 years — filled him with shame and disrespect for the United States.  Now it appears that President Obama has the complete "transformation" of America as his goal, but to me that means he has the utmost contempt for capitalism, Christianity and America's traditional values, because he wants to change everything.  His actions and words have already verified this.

Battered Country Syndrome.  In the name of politics, we are being punished because the [president] did not get what he wanted, and he's angry at us.  But he was angry at us before.  He told the whole world that he was angry from the beginning of his tenure, when he went around the world and threw us under the proverbial bus in speech after speech.  Now, he is making sure that future reductions in the rate at which he can waste our tax dollars translate into present inconvenience and discomfort at airports.
Obama's plan hatched at Columbia University.  [Barack Obama] says he graduated Class of '83.  Let's give him the benefit of the doubt.  Well then Obama had to attend the same Political Science classes as me and I can tell you, almost to a man, my classmates in the Class of '83 proudly called themselves Marxist, communist or socialist.  They bragged of being radical like a badge of honor.  They openly hated America — calling it racist.  They hated capitalism — and vowed to bring "the system down."  In my class the typical Columbia political science student vowed to destroy capitalism, bankrupt business owners, and vaporize what they called "the white power structure."
Barack Obama blames US Navy for increased North Korean tensions.  Ever notice that this administration is only lightning-fast when it comes to shifting blame when things don't work out perfectly?
Closing the White House as Mental Abuse.  Mrs. Obama is frequently compared to Marie Antoinette.  She spends hundreds of millions of dollars a year on her own pleasure and aggrandizement while urging the peasants to plant gardens.  And for the first time in American history, we have a president who insults us across the world, disavows the idea that American is special, enriches our enemies such as the Muslim Brotherhood, and degrades our achievements ("You didn't build that.").
Obama: Marxist Revolutionary.  By now most people, even the "low-information voters," know that Obama is a habitual, unabashed liar.  What they need to grasp, however, is that his biggest and most dangerous lie is that he is out to help the Middle Class. [...] The Middle Class, aka We, the People, is his greatest, most hated enemy, and everything he has done since he usurped the office he occupies has been aimed at our destruction as a viable economic, social, and political entity.
No Need For Guns In America.  Tyranny is coming in America, despite the fact that more than half of her citizens are too deluded, arrogant, or stupid to see it.  If Obama's policy processes continue unchecked, America will experience cataclysmic civil unrest; again, unfathomable to most Americans, this is precisely what Obama intends.
GOP Rep: 'The Only Constitution That Barack Obama Upholds Is The Soviet Constitution'.  President Obama has "no concept" of the U.S. Constitution, despite his previously being a constitutional law professor, Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  Rather, he said, the president upholds the constitution of our old Cold War foe. [...] "I don't know what Constitution that other members of Congress uphold, but it's not this one," he added.  "I think the only Constitution that Barack Obama upholds is the Soviet constitution, not this one.  He has no concept of this one, though he claimed to be a constitutional lawyer."
Sec. of State? Kerry's Criticism of U.S. Foreign Policy Goes Back 42 Years.  Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), President Barack Obama's nominee for Secretary of State — Hillary Clinton is expected to resign from the position this spring — has often been critical of U.S. foreign policy, likening some American soldiers in Vietnam to Ghenghis Kahn and to war criminals, and being "Messianic" and fueling international animosity, among other criticisms.
A diversionary announcement to draw attention away from the Benghazi scandal: Obama Wants 100,000 American Students to Study in Communist China.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday [1/24/2013] will celebrate the launch of a newly rebranded organization called the "100,000 Strong Foundation," which aims to have 100,000 American students studying in China by 2014.  Thursday's event will "underscore the importance of study abroad in China and the benefits to our strategic relationship with China as well as the personal benefits individuals receive through these exciting experiences," the news release said.  Until now, the 100,000 Strong Initiative — announced by President Obama on his trip to China in 2009 — has operated inside the State Department.  Thursday's 1 p.m. ceremony marks its transition to a non-profit, nongovernmental organization operating independently.
The twilight of America.  Barack Obama has now proposed filling the three positions in the US administration most concerned with the security of the nation and the defence of the free world, those at State, Defence and the CIA, by three men who have all taken up positions which can only strengthen those who threaten the security of America and the survival of the free world.
Barack Obama will attend Gangnam Style concert despite rapper's anti-American protests.  President Barack Obama will attend a charity concert where PSY is scheduled to perform after it emerged the South Korean rapper participated in anti-American protests several years ago.
Obama, Biden Cozy Up to Anti-American Rapper Psy.  Had President-elect Mitt Romney posed for pictures with someone who once wished violent death upon the family members of U.S. soldiers the story would be swirling through the mainstream media for days.  Maybe longer.  Vice President Joe Biden did just that earlier today with rap star Psy, while President Barack Obama shared a laugh with the South Korean rapper known for his wildly popular "Gangnam Style" video.
Obama Meets, Shakes Hands and Shares Laugh with Rapper Psy.  Barack Obama met tonight [12/9/2012] with Psy, the anti-American South Korean rapper, at the Christmas in Washington Charity Concert.
Our anti-American president loves that anti-American Psy-chotic Korean rapper.  Barack Obama is an embarrassment to America.  He shook the hand of a man who openly calls for the murder of American soldiers and their families.
Merry Christmas, America-Haters?  When TNT was preparing its annual special "Christmas in Washington" with the president of the United States, you'd think the last star musician they would consider to join the official caroling would be Psy, the South Korean rapper. [...] This inane publicity stunt backfired when the website Mediaite reported on Dec. 7 that Psy (real name: Park Jae-sang) had participated in a 2002 protest in which he crushed a model of an American tank with a microphone stand.  But that's nothing compared to the footage of a 2004 performance after a Korean missionary was slaughtered by Islamists in Iraq.  These lyrics cannot be misunderstood.
A Few Things I Never Want to Hear Again:  [#4]  "I know he's a good man, and wants what's best for America."  I hope this is the last presidential election in which conservatives will have to hear this validate-your-opponent claptrap from their standard-bearer.  Barack Obama is neither a good man nor one who wants what is best for America.  He is a bad, conscienceless man, who wants to undo America in the name of a very foreign model of social organization.

Obama's Apology Tour Was Crafted By Handful Of Radical Advisors.  In fact, the president has followed a "doctrine of mea culpa" crafted by a handful of radical advisers who have urged him to, in so many words, apologize for America's war on terror and nuclear superiority.

Obama's Trip to the Dark Side.  If the Ahmadinejads of the world want to defeat us, they need inside help.  They need leaders who loathe America as they do — leaders who will pursue destructive policies that progressively weaken us from within.  America's enemies need an American president to adopt Carter-esque policies like these[...]

Exceptionalism Obama versus Bowing Obama.  Good news, America!  Just three years and 351 days into his presidency, President Obama has finally accepted the concept of American exceptionalism in the world.

Social Justice is a Proven Failure... and So Is Obama.  There is a reason that Obama's ideological policy efforts have failed America.  It is because they, like his ideology, are not American.  No, I am not suggesting that he wasn't born here or that he's not an American citizen.  I am stating with absolute certainty that his core ideology is predicated upon anything but liberty.  And since liberty is at the very core of American ideology, he is thoroughly un-American.

Obama slandered America as racist using dishonest claims about the response to Hurricane Katrina.  The Daily Caller has obtained and posted video of a 2007 speech by Barack Obama in Hampton, Virginia.  Speaking to an audience of black ministers, and using a black dialect only marginally more authentic than Joe Biden's, Obama claims that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism. [...] But as the Daily Caller points out, by January 2007, six months before Obama's Hampton speech, the federal government had sent at least $110 billion to areas damaged by Katrina.  This was more than five times the money that the Bush administration pledged to New York City after 9/11.

America Won't Survive Another Four Years of Obama.  We are becoming a different people, more like the feckless, infertile, dependent Europeans and less like the men and women who built this country.  We aren't there yet.  But we have lost so much ground under Obama that we do not know whether the country will pass a point of no return during a second Obama term. [...] A president who disparages and undermines entrepreneurship, promotes dependency, fails to defend American security interests, and apologizes for American values is a big part of the problem.

No Vetting Needed.  Obama is out in plain sight before Americans and the rest of the world.  There is no mystery.  Nothing to uncover.  He has intentionally taken America down.  His most recent proclamation at the United Nations that "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam" says it all, doesn't it?  There is nothing vague about that comment.

Stop Apologizing for Our Liberties.  The last few weeks have witnessed a peculiar and disturbing spectacle:  An American administration that has spent a great deal of time and energy apologizing for our liberties — in particular, for what many would regard as the foundation of all our other liberties, namely, the freedom to express our minds as we see fit.  This signature freedom, of which Americans were once so boastful, has clearly become a source of befuddled embarrassment to the current administration and many of its liberal supporters.

The Commonness of Barack Obama.  For the first time, Americans elected a president whose formative years were spent far away from the American mainland — a man who (along with his mentor, wife, minister, and others who have been closest to him) has an intense, deep-seated dislike for the country that elected him.  Obama was dead serious when he said he wanted to "remake" America — just as his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, wasn't fooling when he sided with Stalin against Truman's America; just as Michelle wasn't fooling when she said in 2008 that it was the first time she was proud of her country; just as Rev. Jeremiah Wright wasn't fooling when he raged, "God d*** America!"  So, yes, the president is unique among American presidents.  However, against the backdrop of human history, and compared to other heads of state, Barack Obama is drearily common.

D'Souza Gets Boffo Results By Exploding Obama Story.  The book and film [by Dinesh D'Souza] link Barack Obama with his estranged late Kenyan father and suggest the two share a deep-seeded hatred for colonialism and capitalism. [...] What the film is suggesting is that Obama's agenda is one of downsizing America in the world -- downsizing our economy, reducing our consumption of energy, reducing our nuclear weapons and shrinking America's footprint in the world.  My point is that these are not the accidental result of Obama's policies, they're actually his goals.  The anti-colonial ideology helps to explain why they are his goals.

September 11, 2012 — and Obama Apologizes.  Four Americans are killed in Libya, our consulate burned and our Egyptian embassy stormed on the anniversary of 9/11 after we apologize for a film allegedly "insulting to Islam." [...] Maybe President Obama shouldn't have skipped all those national intelligence briefings.

As We Approach the Final Battle to Save America.  Obama is the most far-left-radical, racially polarizing, and anti-Christian president in U.S. history.  Though once thought incomprehensible by many, Americans are beginning to accept the devastating truth that our president is intentionally undermining our country.

Obama's First Real Election.  Barack Obama is an odd bird in American presidential politics. [...] The examples of Obama's subtle oddities are many.  The biggest ones are his deep, public bows to foreign potentates, an act that alienates him from more than two centuries of American public behavior.  Those showy bows were not accidental.  They were planned, and they reflect his frothing resentment against this country.

Why President Obama Hates America.  Barack Hussein Obama Sr., who died in 1982, was an African communist and anti-colonialist who hated the West.  He wanted to see powers like Britain and what he viewed as its imperial successor, America, punished for oppressing peoples and exploiting their labor and resources.  Obama Jr. shares his father's animosity and is doing his bitter bidding, according to "2016," which is written and narrated by scholar Dinesh D'Souza and based on his book, "Roots of Obama's Rage."  The son, D'Souza warns, is on "a campaign of revenge" to bring down America as a "military and economic power."  While hard to accept, the film answers what the media refuse to even question.

AP Undoes Its Own 'Fact Check' on D'Souza's '2016: Obama's America'.  D'Souza's thesis is that President Barack Obama is deeply influenced by the anti-colonial views of his father, Barack H. Obama, Sr.  I happen to think that D'Souza's argument is, at best, a partial explanation of Obama's views.  The term "anti-colonial" is a good first pass at Obama's foreign policy, which often neglects traditional American allies in favor of rapprochement with hostile regimes.  However, Obama's focus is domestic policy, and his preference for a weakened America on the world stage grows from his desire to see the U.S. adopt the redistributionist policies of other nations.  He is focused inward, not outward.

Five Times Obama Has Apologized for America.  The Obama campaign and notoriously liberal "fact-check" websites such as factcheck.org, Politifact, and the Washington Post's "Fact Checker" said President Obama never went on an "apology tour" and has never apologized for American actions.  However, in the first few months of the president's term, Obama repeatedly did speak of America's past mistakes in a series of appearances, several of which fell in foreign countries.  It was also revealed in a top secret cable published in 2011 by Wikileaks that the Japanese government vetoed the idea of President Obama visiting Hiroshima in September 2009 and apologizing for the atomic bomb.

Downsizing America: The Obama Doctrine in Action.  Many of Obama's actions and policies can seem incomprehensible coming from the leader of the most powerful nation in the world.  They are therefore often attributed to bungling and ineptitude.  However, according to D'Souza, this is a President who did not seek the highest office in the land to preserve American greatness and leadership.  Instead, Obama's core motivating philosophy is deeply rooted anti-colonialism.  D'Souza sees the President as successfully pursuing a vision concealed by political rhetoric from most Americans who voted for Obama.  From Obama's perspective, says D'Souza, America is too rich, consumes too many of the world's resources, is militarily too strong, and has to be reduced to its proper place among the eight or so major nations of the world.  "He wants... an America in decline so that other nations might rise."

"2016: Obama's America" — a box office success.  [Scroll down]  As for the merits of D'Souza's thesis, I agree with John that we don't need Barack Obama Sr. to account for his son's attitude toward the West, toward America, and toward free enterprise.  That attitude is pretty standard among left liberals.  For example, as John says, Hillary Clinton marinated in the view that America needs to be cut down to size just as much as Obama did.  But perhaps Barack Obama Sr. can help explain the intensity of his son's hostility toward traditional American beliefs and values and toward its traditional role in the world.  Unlike the case of many on the left, Obama's hostility did not begin as an act of juvenile rebellion or as a way of fitting in with his peers.  Rather, it seems deeply rooted in personal biography and psychodrama.

Love Him or Hate Him, You Don't Know Him: Obama's America — 2016.  I attended a recent screening of the surprise box office hit "Obama's America: 2016."  The documentary is narrated by Dinesh D'Souza and based upon two of his most recent books, including "The Roots of Obama's Rage."  D'Souza's thesis is that Obama embraced his father's anti-colonial legacy and seeks to transform America into a second or third class nation as a form of retribution for America's past cultural and political imperialism.  Obama is a proponent of failed economic policies that have left much of the Third World mired in poverty.

Obama's Anti-Colonialist View of the World is Out of Step with Mainstream U.S. Opinion. Obama's Harsh Views On America Contradict His Rhetoric.  [Scroll down]  The story of Barack Obama, however, is not just the story of how one man came to be the way he is.  It is a much larger story about how millions of Americans came to vote for, and some to idolize, a man whose fundamental beliefs and values are so different from their own.

The Most Divisive Campaign in American History.  In 2012, Obama can no longer run as a reformer or an optimist.  The coalition that he committed to last year is a coalition of those who are unhappy with America, not in the last four years, but in the last two-hundred years.  Its core is composed of groups that fear democracy and distrust the will of the people.  There is no optimism here, but a deeply rooted pessimism about human nature and the country as a whole.  It is the Democratic Party's coalition against democracy.

Our President is No Patriot.  On this Fourth of July, we should remember just how little President Barack Obama cares for America.  He does not believe the United States is an exceptional nation in any unique sense.  He refused to wear a flag pin as a gesture of dissent from national pride.  He worshipped at a church that damns the country, and neither he nor his wife were proud of America until fellow Democrats elevated them to the top of the political heap.

Why Obama Could Be a Communist Mole:  [Scroll down]  I see no reason to believe that Obama has any feeling for America, its traditions, or its Constitution beyond sheer lip service.  Nearly everything in his past and in the present points otherwise.  Obama's willful conduct domestically and in terms of foreign affairs point to the programmatic unraveling of the strictures of the U.S. Constitution.  His concessionary and disadvantageous actions towards China and Russia in particular are very troubling to say the least.

Obama's Patriotism.  [Scroll down]  From Michelle Obama's pronouncement that she was never proud of her country until her husband won the nomination to Obama's declaration that America is no more exceptional than any other country in the world, a sense of pride in being an American is missing from the White House these days.  A man who is proud to be an American would not traverse the globe apologizing for America's transgressions.  A leader with love of country would not announce his intent to "fundamentally transform" America rather than pursue an agenda of furthering the good the country has brought to the world.

Obama Forgets Anniversary.  Thursday [6/21/2012] marked the 224th anniversary of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution with no word out of the White House.  The White House website did not mention the anniversary in its blog or any other portion of its website.

Is Barack Obama the "Enemy from Within"?  President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim!  There, I said it.  Now I will back it up with the facts to prove it.  This can no longer be a matter of conjecture.  There simply is too much evidence.  On the surface, to be candid, it would not be a big deal that he was a Muslim, if he loved America and her allies.  But the evidence shows otherwise.  Barack Obama, in my opinion, is an enemy of not just our state, but half (or more) of the world.  To make matters worse, he's using America's might to further his Anti-Colonialism beliefs.

Who Is Barack Obama?.  [In Dreams from My Father] he presents a warts-only history of the U.S., a story of evil and suffering.  U.S. society is a "racial caste system" where "color and money" determine where you end up in life.  He tells us of white children's stoning black children, Jim Crow, and heatless Harlem housing projects.  He describes "Japanese families interned behind barbed wire; young Russian Jews cutting patterns in Lower East Side sweatshops; dust-bowl farmers loading up their trucks with the remains of shattered lives."  Obama says the Hawaiian islands, where he grew up, are beautiful, but quickly reminds us that behind the beauty lurks the "ugly conquest of the native Hawaiians ... crippling disease brought by missionaries ... the indenturing system that kept Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino immigrants stooped sunup to sunset in [the fields]."

Obama the Reactionary.  [Scroll down]  But Obama is not an amateur at all:  He is a professional "community organizer," which used to be called a "communist organizer" back when newspapers still told the truth.  Obama is not acting out of character.  He's not even particularly incompetent.  He's just not interested in being President of the United States, if that means protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States.  Obama treats the US Constitution with unconcealed contempt, as he has shown the country time and time again.  That's why the Supremes may be getting ready to show him some spine.

Obama's 'Favorite Professor': Poor and Minorities Receive 'Little Benefit' from America.  "I had a wonderful political science class," Obama told YouTube's Steve Grove on January 27, 2011.  "It sparked my general interest in politics.  And he still teaches there and was just a wonderful, wonderful professor."  That professor was Roger Boesche.  Obama took two classes from Boesche — one on Nietzsche, the other on American history — and they apparently left quite an impression.  But Obama's "wonderful professor" had some rather odious views about the United States military, which contemporaneous accounts in the student newspaper of Occidental confirm.

Obama Stalls U.S. Energy Independence, Enemies Smile.  Do America's enemies wish us well?  It's an important question because they've made a big push to halt U.S. energy production.  So why does the Obama administration's policies support their aims?

"If I Wanted America to Fail": Internet Video Sensation.  The video has become an Internet phenomena [sic] with over one million views in just five days, and there have been numerous requests for its publication as a guest column.

Is Barack Obama's Anti-white, Anti-American Bias Inherited?  In order to understand Barack Obama's motivation when it comes to national defense, jobs, deficits, taxes the economy, and American culture in general, one must accept the following fact:  ["]Barack Obama holds a deep, personal resentment against those Americans who have the audacity to succeed and prosper.["]  It would be wrong to blatantly accuse the president of using an anti-white bias when making economic decisions.  It is mere coincidence, you see, that he always targets the so-called rich whom also just happen to be mostly Caucasian.

Impeachment-Ready Obama Surrenders American Military to U.N..  [Scroll down]  Americans may remember that under Obama's orders the FBI recently removed every mention of Muslim terrorism from its training materials.  This is all part of the plan of submission to the greater power of the United Nations with the support of Muslims worldwide.  And Americans would do well to finally open their eyes to a reality that will not change unless they decide to defend their country and their defenseless men in the military, at the mercy of the wrong leadership whose now obvious allegiance is not to watch over American interests.  So far, every measure taken by Obama and his entire administration has been nefarious for our country.

Obama's legacy: Failure.  For a self-professed constitutional scholar, the unraveling of Obamacare shows President Obama has contempt for that document which is the foundation of the American government.

What Happened to Preserve, Protect, and Defend?  Obama has done what no guardian of America would do:  systematically tear down the most vital of America's defenses, all while America's enemies wait with bated breath for the nation that owes trillions in debt to be left standing defenseless.  What happens when America lays down its arms?  It seems Obama would like to find out.

Carney Asked if 'Saul Alinsky Portrait' Is Hanging in the White House.  During a White House press briefing on Monday [3/19/2012], Fox News' Ed Henry asked Press Secretary Jay Carney if the White House displays a portrait of Saul Alinsky for its staff to look up to.  Carney's answer was less than direct, and would seem to hint that there just might be something to the Alinsky portrait rumors.

A Man for all Treasons and the US Constitution.  By treason I mean attitudes, motives, speech and/or activities that are not simply un-American, but are squarely anti-American in intent and effect.  Within the past few years we have seen economic treason, judicial treason, and political treason to name just a few.  The great number of treasonous activities presently going on in this country precludes me from making an in-depth analysis, but I will attempt something of an overview.

Obama versus the Democrats.  Obama wanted to play president, not be president.  And the real Barack Obama is anything but a confident, competent winner.  Some of those who did not support Obama tried to sound the warning bell about Obama's severe lack of... well, everything necessary for a president to succeed.  Obama lacked experience, and he continues to lack character, integrity, and a love of the America that has taken over 200 years to build.

Removing the Keystone (Pipeline).  The Keystone XL pipeline's demise tosses another shovel full of dirt onto the lid of this country's coffin.  Keystone's termination was not just a kickback to the urban dwelling, loony-left environmental voters, though that was a nice bonus.  The demise was also not just a payoff to Warren Buffet's rail companies that currently ferry unrefined North Dakota oil, though that too was an added benefit.  No, killing Keystone XL forwards two radical anti-American agendas deeply coveted by the hard-leftists occupying the White House.

Obama and the End of American Exceptionalism.  Barack Obama and his regime have accomplished much of what they set out to do — namely, the transformation of American society and an end to the pre-eminent status of the United States.  They have had a singleness of purpose and allegiance first and foremost to a confused and muddled ideology and not country.  When the leadership of a great nation exhibits this trait, the consequences can be catastrophic.  The product of a lifetime of leftist indoctrination, Barack Obama has, as the basic foundation of his disorganized and uncertain belief system, a conviction that the United States has been the epitome of oppression and arrogance throughout its history.

American Exceptionalism Under Assault.  In this election cycle, one noticeable phenomenon is how the Republican presidential candidates are emphasizing our country's founding principles — liberty and freedom — more than in any campaign in the modern political era.  Each speaks often of the Declaration of Independence.  Citing articles of the Constitution is commonplace.  The president's record of evoking such themes stands in stark contrast.  In his State of the Union address, for example, our president made only one perfunctory reference to the Constitution and then went on to misquote it.

The Real Obama.  The truth is not hidden.  One merely has to digest the new budget Obama unveiled last week, his budget last year, and his four major speeches since last April, and the real Obama comes into focus.  He turns out to be a left-wing progressive who rejects many of the mainstream political and economic ideas of post-World War II America.

US Government Is Financing Our Foreign Competition.  Here's a a question:  If tax dollars were being used to make prices cheaper for companies overseas while simultaneously forbidding American companies from enjoying the same luxury — would that be fair?

We Dare Call It Treason.  Obama-Soetoro has made it clear from the outset that he hates America and its constitution, capitalism, white people, and Christians.  He made a point of publicly insulting our long-time allies like Britain and Israel, and of bowing to the Muslim Saudi king and the Head Red of China.  What has he done — ever — to contradict the notion that he believes America needs to be punished for her greatness, which he sees as having been achieved by criminal exploitation of "people of color"?

Obama's Assault on America's Prestige.  History is filled with examples of how costly it is for a nation to allow its prestige to be damaged, thus weakening its power and inviting aggression.

End of the Constitution: Obamacare birth-control mandate would defeat the First Amendment.  Mr. Obama is not simply an inept, liberal president in the mold of Jimmy Carter.  He is an ideological revolutionary who seeks to sweep away traditional America.

The Real Contraception Question:  As it is, Mr. Obama seems intent on slowing America's population growth.  Does he want us to be like, say, Japan...?

Obama's Vision for a Spartan America.  What Obama is saying, quite plainly, is that America would be better off if it wasn't America any longer.  He's making the case not for American exceptionalism, but Spartan exceptionalism.  It's far worse than anything George W. Bush, the supposed warmonger, ever said.

Gingrich And The Battle For American Exceptionalism.  Alinsky, the far-left father of modern community organizing, is not a name you'll see falling from the lips of the liberal media elites. ... Few paid much attention when candidate Barack Obama told a rally shortly before the 2008 election that he was five days away from fundamentally transforming America.  That was Alinsky's goal, too, and Obama would become the disciple and instrument of Alinsky-inspired policies that would put a foreclosure sign in front of Ronald Reagan's shining city on a hill.

Obama chooses American decline.  Which nation will be the world's leading superpower a few decades from now?  I fervently hope it is the United States, and I have great faith in American ingenuity.  But the Obama administration's rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline is a reminder of why our No. 1 position is in jeopardy.

Obama Proposes Crippling Cuts To U.S. Military.  How can we propose massive cuts in the number of uniformed military when we are paying for NPR?  How can he cut the Marine Corps by 10% when he won't cut the Department of Energy or the Department of Education?  Answer:  This is Obama's strategy for the world, rooted in a deep, profound suspicion of American exceptionalism and American military power.

Our Trojan Horse president.  I was thinking about writing a novel about what might happen if a man who hates America and wants to bring it down is somehow elected president.  What would he do? ... First, the Trojan Horse president would initiate unprecedented spending, driving the debt up by more than $4 trillion just in the first three years.  Much of the money would go into the pockets of political supporters and people who donate heavily to his campaigns.  He would ram through an unreadable law allowing the federal government to seize the health care system, which would transform citizens into beholden subjects.

The Past and the Present.  This is not just another election and Barack Obama is not just another president whose policies we may not like.  With all of President Obama's broken promises, glib demagoguery and cynical political moves, one promise he has kept all too well.  That was his boast on the eve of the 2008 election:  "We are going to change the United States of America."  Many Americans are already saying that they can hardly recognize the country they grew up in.

The destroyer of the American Nation.  From the beginning of his Administration, Obama has had one primary goal:  the willful and deliberate destruction of the American nation as it was founded.  Sounds incredible?  When one considers his words and actions, it is the only conclusion one can reach.

Barack Obama's America, In His Own Words.  Sometimes in unguarded moments the Obamas have said revealing things that later needed to be explained away — the president's "bitter clingers" remark and Mrs. Obama's being proud of her country "for the first time in my adult life" spring to mind.  The president seems to be making more of these bloopers as the pressure of running for re-election on his record gets to him.

Obama's Car Trouble:  The Fiat 500 is more evidence that — like Solyndra and windmills — Obama's fascination with Europe has little to do with facts and everything to do with ideology.  Obama is determined to convert Americans to the Green Church, but they aren't buying.

Obama's growing disdain for American worker.  Our president now travels around the world to pronounce the end of the American era, kowtow to foreign leaders by saying the U.S. is no longer the singular force in the world, and essentially disrespect everything that has made this great country so great.  While the Nobel Prize winner courts the world, looking for lost love, he holds a special disdain for the working American.  Now, mind you, this from a guy who has never held down a real job:  from community organizer to Illinois state senator to U.S. senator to president, taxpayers have been paying his salary since the mid-1990s.  In the past three months, his real feelings about the state of the U.S. economy have come out and, more important, just who's to blame for it.  You won't be surprised:  It's YOU.

Obama's Denigrate America tour.  President Obama regularly expresses his contempt for America. ... Mr. Obama is a typical liberal.  He believes America is fundamentally flawed, wicked and in irreversible decline.  Like most on the radical left, he has been profoundly disappointed by America, especially over the past several decades.

Obama's dark vision of America.  America, in the view of President Barack Obama, is not a happy place.  It is a dark region where people cheat each other; corporations brutalize the public, and opportunity is out of reach.  Obama's relentless reelection focus on America's demons is a communications error that could haunt his bid for a second term.

Who is This Man, Barack Obama?  There is something strangely wrong with Barack Obama.  I think most of us know it.  I think most of us can see it when he speaks about America.  I'm sure most of us have seen and heard him in speeches and interviews.  He displays brilliant speaking skills on almost every subject until he comes to talking about America and her goodness.  Almost suddenly there is strangeness to his manner, unease when he talks about America.  He appears uncomfortable and awkward.  It's as if he is being forced to read something he doesn't really feel or believe.  It reminds me of the scenes on TV news programs of American POW's in Vietnam, or even Iraq, being forced to read, for public perception, how good things were in captivity.

Krauthammer rips Obama's 'ill-concealed contempt' for Americans: 'It's unseemly'.  According to [Dr. Charles] Krauthammer, Obama is willing to point out everyone's shortcomings except his own.  "No one is asking him to go out there and to be a jingoistic cheerleader," Krauthammer said.  "But when you call your own country 'lazy' when you are abroad, and call it 'unambitious and soft' when you are home, I think what you are showing is not tough love, but ill-conceived, ill-concealed contempt."

A Country Unworthy Of Its President.  At a business forum Saturday, President Obama complained that "we've been a little bit lazy over the last couple of decades."  He apparently meant we've let foreign investment go slack, since "we aren't out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new business into America."  But this is just the latest slur against the United States uttered by its leader.

President blames America while running economy into the ground.  President Obama is overseas on a nine-day Blame America First tour.  He's ostensibly spending time on the other side of the Pacific to explore ways the United States can work better with Asian economies.  Instead, he's using his time in the spotlight to criticize the nation he's supposed to be leading.

The Player and the President.  [Scroll down]  During the nationally broadcast 9/11 ceremony from New York, President Obama stood there in a Bill Clinton pose — his nose perched high in the air — seemingly unmoved even as others wept and bowed their heads in prayer.  It was a troubling and incongruous posture for the leader of a nation commemorating the worst terrorist attack in American history. ... He stood through most of the ceremony gazing off into the blue, as if he were some kind of grandee above it all.

The War is On.  Just as America has failed to acknowledge that we are at war with radical Islam, too many conservatives have failed to come to grips with the fact that we are at war here at home with the Marxism of Barack Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus and labor unions.  It has nothing to do with race — at least not for conservatives — and everything to do with ideology and power.  Obama has declared war on the traditions of the United States of America.  In his most revealing, unguarded moments he tells us who he really is.

The Anti-American President.  Liberty-minded folk have several reasons why we assume another person is incompetent rather than malicious.  One reason is our belief that a person is "innocent until proven guilty"; another is the natural presumption others are similar to ourselves. ... As long as there is any possibility that Obama is just in over his head and doesn't mean what he says and does, many will excuse him on those grounds.  Every American must judge Obama and his ideas and understand he does mean what he says, and realize there is no excuse, save one — Barack Obama is an anti-American in thought and deed.

Obama is a Calculating, Not Stupid Individual.  Barack Hussein Obama is not stupid.  He knows exactly what he is doing.  He is bent on the erosion of American values and, so far, he is winning.

The Silence that Shatters America.  Why do decent, rational, American-loving people let Obama get away with saying he will "fundamentally transform America"?  The first time he arrogantly uttered these words, the response should have been:  "It should go without saying that no one, not even a president or a king will ever be allowed to fundamentally transform America."

Barack Hussein Obama is a Fraud.  Obama is a fraud on the people of this country for at least two very important reasons.  First, he presents himself as a person who loves America, which I believe he does not.  He wants to do away with our American traditions, lead us into socialism, and do away with our basic constitutional rights.  Secondly, he presents himself as a Christian, but he undermines Christianity.  Obama falsely presents himself as a person who loves America.  The evidence is to the contrary. ... Barack Hussein Obama does not love America and he has no respect for our Constitution.

Who's the worst president in American history? A growing bipartisan consensus on Obama.  For more than 30 years, a wounded Jimmy Carter has roamed the world speaking ill of whomever the sitting president might be and occasionally making it difficult for that president to make policy.  Mr. Obama already has surpassed him, speaking ill of America as a whole while being president.

Playing the Obama Death-to-the-USA Game.  Are you as exhausted as am I from hearing 'journalists' and supposed expert talking heads telling us "If only Obama would 'X' (you fill in your own solution) he would put us back on the right track toward beginning to save our economy" or asking "Why doesn't Obama do 'Y' to help the economy?"  The problem with these comments and questions is the presupposition that the dictator-in-chief actually wants to save the United States of America.  That assumption is false.

President Obama Is No Longer Tethered To Reality.  President Barack Obama's speech to the nation Monday night [7/25/2011] was highly disturbing.  Because read carefully, it reveals a president wildly divorced from the fundamental realities of the nation he is supposed to be leading.  President Obama actually told America on national television that it is a nation "with a system in which the deck seems stacked against middle class Americans in favor of the wealthiest few."  It is incomprehensible how a man serving as president of these United States could make such a fundamentally false assertion about his own country.

Obama's culture of death.  Mr. Obama is a Leninist — a committed revolutionary, who is embarked upon an ambitious project to transform America.  He worships statism and secularism — the very antithesis of our Founding Fathers.  He has put the United States on the path of civilizational decline and moral ruin.

The Un-American American President.  Barack Obama does not sound like an American because Obama's heart and soul are not American in nature.  His thoughts are not American.  His attitude and philosophy are not American.  He cannot speak from the heart about America because America does not reside there.  With a Muslim upbringing, a radical family, radical mentor, a myriad of radical connections, radical advisors, a radical theology, and some say a radical spouse, it's no wonder.  Obama's agenda is informed by Marx and guided by years of close associations with extreme individuals and groups whose stated goals are the demise of America and America's influence in the world.  When he says he wants to "fundamentally transform America," he is dead serious.

Feeling depressed?  I have been a keen student of American history and politics for well over 50 years and I have never seen the country in such poor shape or been this discouraged.  President Obama is to blame for this.  In trying to fundamentally change America and remake it in his own image he has, among other things, ruined the economy, flouted and ignored the rule of law (especially as it pertains to him and the office of President), allowed an Islamic fifth column to take root which wants to change our way of life and make America into a country ruled by Islam, practiced politics of sleaze and division, failed to defend our civil liberties and basic values and run roughshod over our institutions, denigrated us on the world stage, turned us into an international laughingstock...

Obama and the End of Western Civilization.  Barack Obama assumed the office of the presidency as a man brought up and steeped in 1960's radicalism, which advanced the doctrine that America, as the lone Western superpower, represented the evil nature of colonialism and capitalism's exploitation of the masses — whether there was any truth in this assertion or that the United States was guilty of these sins was irrelevant.  The material and military success of America and the West could only have come about from expropriating the wealth and labor of the peoples of the world. ... Barack Obama has spent his entire life, from birth to the present, marinated in this mindset.  He is thus incapable of change or being receptive to any other viewpoint, as that would be an admission of failure.

Happy Dependence Day.  Mr. Obama's vision of relegating free citizens to serf status under an all-powerful government is un-American at its core.  He has sold this dangerous doctrine via prolific lies, distortions and class envy.  But socialist economics always fails because it violates human nature.  Obamanomics is no exception.

Why Obama is Just Not That Into You.  Obama's arrogance has been crystal clear from the start.  He sneered at Hillary Clinton during a debate:  "You're likable enough."  Obama then demonstrated the class of a l3-year-old by using his middle finger to gesture about Hillary, menacingly.  President Obama has alienated our traditional allies through his cockiness and disrespect. ... But it's not just our traditional allies that Obama treats reprehensibly.  He dislikes most of the American people and our culture, a fact that was apparent early on.

Evidently Obama especially hates Texas. Texas Takes Biggest Hit on Federal Anti-Terrorism Funding Cuts.  More than 30 smaller and mid-sized U.S. cities are losing about $170 million in federal anti-terrorism funding that began after the Sept. 11 attacks, perplexing some local officials at a time when information gleaned from Osama bin Laden's hideout suggests al-Qaida is being encouraged to attack smaller targets.

The Obama administration has an anti-Texas bias.  The Obama administration has a bias against the state creating the most jobs in America, retiring Texas Republican Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison explained on MSNBC's "The Daily Rundown" Friday [6/10/2011].  "I see a bias in this administration against Texas," Hutchison said, explaining how some of Texas' anti-government attitude has made it more difficult to get the administration to pay attention to the Lone Star state's needs.

Obama Seems Incapable of Loving America. [Scroll down]  Every once in a while, as he did in that speech in 2008, Obama shows us who he really is and what he really believes — if we are listening.  Such a moment of startling honesty came recently when Obama delivered what the mainstream media laughingly described as a "response" to Rep. Paul Ryan's common sense budget.  What the speech really amounted to, of course, was simply a tired partisan kick-off of his 2012 re-election campaign.  In it, Obama again stated his contempt for the nation that has given him so much.

Obama missing: National Police Week.  Sunday, May 15 is the 30th annual Peace Officers Memorial Service.  Law enforcement from all over the country gathered in Washington for National Police Week to honor fallen comrades-in-arms.  Too bad President Obama couldn't be there.  Despite being invited to speak to the widows, children and friends of the 165 officers recognized this year as killed in the line of duty, he somehow didn't think it was important to trek the two miles from the White House to the Capitol Building to participate.  Perhaps it's because Mr. Obama historically has had a conflicted relationship with law enforcement.

The Editor asks... Why does Mr. Obama hate cops?  Does Barack Obama (a/k/a Barry Soetoro) have an arrest record?  That's one of many aspects of Obama's past that nobody knows.

Restoring America's Standing.  "I think that we've restored America's standing in the world."  [ —Barack Obama, November 18, 2009]  Was this the simply the usual prevarication of a President with a massive ego, or something he truly believed?  In any event, the panorama of the world today is far different as America is increasingly finding itself isolated, vilified, and ignored as never before in its recent history.  The heady days of "hope and change" have given way to cynicism and mockery within the international community.

Obama Versus the Constitution:  Obama acts like a Third World socialist, like his Kenyan father, and his thinking is stunningly rigid.  He seems to be woefully ignorant about basic economics, science, and technology, international affairs, and the conventions of American politics.  Either that, or he is acting that way as part of his peculiar character disorder.  Deliberately violating norms is a way to show contempt for "middleclassness," as Jerry Wright calls it.  It's the bourgeois values that Karl Marx hated so much.  In psychiatry, deliberate lifelong violations of accepted rules are a sign of "oppositional-defiant personality," closely allied with grandiose narcissism.  That describes Obama's lifelong character.

Wherever Obama was born, his politics are foreign.  When George Bush graciously turned over the White House keys to the mysterious man with the mysterious background, few realized he was handing America's top secrets to the enemies from within.  But given the swiftness with which Obama began implementing his collectivist, anti-America agenda, it didn't take long for millions of voters to wake up.  Sadly, however, many more millions still choose to ignore his anti-American words and actions and write off those who oppose him as racists or right-wing radicals.

Obama squanders America's legacy.  Even Mr. Obama's most humble predecessors did not apologize for the great country they led.  They did not bow before dictators and beg forgiveness for America's excesses, which are but a small price to pay for actual and untidy freedom.  And they certainly were not embarrassed by the unequaled strength of our military power.

GOP 2012 theme: American 'decline'.  Republican activists in this key presidential state have a dark, foreboding feeling that America is in decline.  They believe the nation is hurtling in the wrong direction and, worse, on the brink of losing its unique place in the world.  That sentiment is hardly new to American politics, but it's one that's been reanimated by the presidency of Barack Obama.  Some see him as hostile to the notion of American exceptionalism.  Others simply don't believe he's an American at all.

'Common' Nonsense.  Obama officials claimed they had never heard of Joanne Chesimard (who renamed herself Assata Shakur), a woman Common celebrated in "song." ... In November 1979, she escaped from prison and made her way to her revolutionary paradise in Cuba.  Since May 2, 2005, the FBI has classified her as a "domestic terrorist" and offered a $1 million reward for assistance in her capture.  Her "revolutionary" actions are now being celebrated at the Obama White House.

Obama's "Common" Associations.  While Michelle Obama may have only recently found a reason to be proud of her country, she has long been proud of rapper Common.  Mrs. Obama and her husband do not want to celebrate the National Day of Prayer in the White House, and the latter "forgot" to do a Presidential Proclamation on Easter — but having Common in the White House is a priority.  This president — and apparently his wife, as well — does not understand or relate to the views of average Americans.  Most of us read Common's lyrics and cannot fathom why the president would allow this person to be feted in the People's House.

Despite outrage, Common performs at the White House.  Rapper and poet Common may have incited controversy this week when the White House invited him to perform at a poetry event.  After all, he has rapped about shooting police and has written lyrics calling for the "burn[ing] of former President George W. Bush."  But Common kept things pretty tame when he took the stage in the East Room at Wednesday night's "Evening of Poetry" along with other musicians, poets and artists.

Obama Consistently Anti-American.  Well, you have to hand it to Obama, he is consistent in his extreme anti-Americanism. ... Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  He specifically invited Brotherhood representatives to attend his speech to the Islamic world in Cairo in June 2009, and during the uprising against Mubarak signaled that he would have no problem with their having a place in Egypt's new government.  He has backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.  He backed the brutal mullahcracy in Iran during the Iranian people's bloody march for freedom.  He has backed Hezb'Allah in Lebanon.  He has backed Islamic law at the UN, having the U.S. co-sponsor with Egypt in summer 2009 a resolution on the restriction of free speech regarding Islam.  And now he is essentially backing Al-Qaeda in Libya.

Obama's Not Lincoln; He's Stephen Douglas.  The flagrant enemy of any enduring peace in America is unmistakably the Obama Nation's campaign to "fundamentally transform the United States of America." ... It has resulted in Barack Obama's "community organizing" and the "collective bargaining" of his philosophy and that of his New World Order Union Bosses.  Such "Dreams From My Father" as President Obama carries in his vision of the future, are Marxist.  They are the exact opposite of what America, at her best, has always stood for.

Combat troops to get gay sensitivity training.  American combat troops will get sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the military's new policy on gays instead of waiting until they return to home base in the United States, the senior enlisted man in Afghanistan said Thursday [2/24/2011].  The Pentagon is launching an extensive force-wide program to ease the process of integrating open homosexuals into the ranks, including into close-knit fighting units.

We're In Denial, America, About Our President.  One of these messages is that the Obamas are profoundly ambivalent about whether America and Americans have historically been a force for good or ill in the world.  This is why the president has repeatedly apologized for America's behavior, in a way that not only signals other nations that our leader is at best uncertain about our moral character, but may plant self-doubt about our decency in own population.

The Post-American Presidency.  As president, Obama is presiding over America's decline, and is in many important ways the apostle of that decline.  He is betraying Israel; warring against free speech; refusing to take real steps to stop Iran's nuclear program, despite the many genocidal statements Ahmadinejad has made against Israel, and the open contempt the mullahs have shown for his efforts to reach out to them.  Obama is turning allies into enemies and enemies into allies; submitting the U.S. to international law; bankrupting us with socialist schemes both domestically and internationally; bypassing the democratic process and the system of checks and balances by governing through a proliferation of "czars"; and using global warming as a pretext to redistribute wealth from the First World to the Third World.

How could an American president be so anti-American?  [President Obama's] record has been so blatantly in contrast to the will of this nation, that it could very nearly be defined as anti-American.

Obama vs. America.  President Obama's statements regarding the proposed Ground Zero mosque are the latest in a series of indicators that we are at a very peculiar pass:  We have a president who doesn't get America.  For the first time in history we have a president whose default setting is in opposition to the general sensibilities of the American people.  His behavior too frequently suggests that he's playing a cosmic joke on Americans' essential decency, considered patriotism, and belief in American exceptionalism.

More about the proposed Ground Zero mosque.

Detailing Obama's Endless Radicalism.  Presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama promised a post-partisan, post-racial presidency if elected.  What voters got was a third type of "post," one for which they clearly didn't bargain.  The Post-American Presidency by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer argues that Obama's every move bespeaks a call to internationalism at the expense of his own country.

Hiroshima, Obama, and Truman.  Today's ceremony commemorating the 65th anniversary of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima had something new:  the presence of the U.S. ambassador to Japan.  Never before had America sent an official participant in the annual memorial to those killed in the world's first atomic attack.  That this should occur during the administration of Barack Obama is no surprise.  No previous American president has been at such pains to apologize for what he thinks are America's sins.  So while, thankfully, Ambassador John Roos did not speak at the Hiroshima event, the import of his presence there was undeniable.

The World Apology Tour Revisited.  Over the last couple of weeks several Japanese newspapers have been all over a new Wikileak that so far has not made much of an impression anywhere in American media.  (I know:  This is a surprise?)  It seems that Obama wanted to include stops at Hiroshima and Nagasaki as part of his 2009 World Apology Tour, so that he could apologize for Harry Truman dropping the Big One to end World War II.  One problem for The One:  Japan was not amused by this idea.

The first presidential press conference with the American flag nowhere in sight.  Did anybody notice at President Obama's Press Conference on the Deep Water Horizon disaster than something was missing in the background?  I noticed something didn't look right and then it hit me.  The American Flags was missing behind.  Why?  Behind him was just yellow curtains, and a couple of gold columns with chandeliers.

President Obama First U.S. President to Hold Press Conference With No U.S. Flags.  I am trying to be patient, I am trying not to jump to conclusions, but there seems to be an anti-American President in the office of the President of United States.

Obama Courts Latino Votes at Arizona's Expense.  Every time the President speaks, makes another appointment, or ramrods a new bill through the democratically controlled congress, he reinforces what millions of Americans now feel; this President does not love America. ... In better times America held oaths of office in higher regard than political ambition.  President Obama, who seems to be on in an unending campaign tour, would let his political ambitions take precedence over any oath known.  If, as we think, he is opposing S.B. 1070 with an eye to amnesty and full appeasement of the Latino voting bloc for his re-election bid in 2012 then we are once again forced to conclude the worst.

Justice Loses Its Stars and Stripes.  What's black and white and "red" all over?  The Department of Justice's newly designed website.  Gone are the standard red, white, and blue motifs, replaced by an all-black backdrop.  And prominently placed on virtually every page of the site is a quote credited to a man who facilitated a greater role for socialists and communists at the U.N., and the global "workers rights movement."

Obama's Lawlessness on Immigration.  It is becoming increasingly clear that, when it comes to illegal immigration, the Obama Administration has a disturbingly cavalier approach to what the law requires.  Three recent examples illustrate his disdain for the plain meaning of the law.

The Back Nine.  [Scroll down]  Away from the greens, Obama has devised the reconstruction of a society that somehow managed to progress for nearly 233 years prior to his occupation of the Oval Office.  Fortunately, the American people have been unwilling to support his "new foundation" as it will effectively destroy the "American Dream", and the nation's future generations will be relegated to a standard of living beneath that of which their predecessors have been blessed to live.

Apologizing for Obama's Serial Apologies.  The next president will have to embark once again on a worldwide "reset" campaign, apologizing to America's allies for the shabby treatment meted out to them by Obama.

Treason Season at the State Department.  The Obama administration appears to be unable to distinguish between the reasonable Arizona immigration law and the acts of merciless dictators in China.  It's a vivid illustration of Obama's 'Blame America First' policy.

Hmmm...  Who is in charge of the State Department?

Obama:  America is a Superpower 'Whether We Like It or Not'.  In a little-noticed remark at the close of the two-day nuclear security summit in Washington, D.C., this week, President Obama suggested the United States was somehow burdened by its military might.

That Ain't Hay, It's The USA.  I gave a speech for the Goldwater Institute in Tucson a few weeks back, and several people came up from the border to see me.  Like many letter writers I've heard from since, they told tales of living in remote properties where every night illegals cross their land.  They lie awake at night frightened for their children and listening for footsteps in the yard.  In effect, the sovereignty of the United States of America no longer applies in this territory — and John Morton and the Department of Homeland Security are entirely cool with that.

Inside the Obama Doctrine for American decline.  At the end of the recent nuclear summit, Obama spoke of nuclear proliferation and the Middle East, saying, "It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because, whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.  And when conflicts break out, one way or another, we get pulled into them."  The Obama Doctrine seeks to avoid the burden of the latter by reducing America from the former.

Obama's Unexceptional Nation.  America has had presidents who were realists and idealists and realistic, even cynical, about the world yet idealistic about America's mission in the world, but Barack Obama is unique among this fraternity.  For arguably the first time in 220 years, we have a president who is idealistic about the world but cynical about America's role in it.  Obama's recent flurry of nuclear diplomacy and declarations is just the latest example.

Should Obama Be Impeached?  Obama is purposely undermining the US Constitution.  In doing so, his actions make unstable every institution and office below the presidency, since the Constitution is the foundation of every government power and official decision.

Barack Hussein Obama and Indonesia:  there's no place like home.  Obama is the first US president who was raised without cultural or emotional or intellectual ties to either Britain or Europe.  The British and the Europeans have been so enchanted with 'America's first black president' that they haven't been able to see what he really is:  America's first Third World president. ... His vision is for the US to abandon its Constitution and its laws, which are tied to Britain, the country for which he has shown such disdain.

Newt Hits Nail on Head.  "But what I find distressing is that this Administration is opposed to looking for oil offshore, but the President bows to the Saudi King, the president is friends with Venezuela whose biggest impact on us is that they sell us a lot of oil, and I just think that there is a shallowness about how they analyze things."

Obama and Kagan are Memorial Day MIAs.  The White House casually announced that President Obama will stop by a veterans cemetery in Chicago, but that really isn't Arlington National Cemetery, a symbol recognized worldwide of America's ever-vigilant fight against tyranny and for liberty.  Perhaps we should be thankful that Obama isn't merely driving by the cemetery and tossing a wreath out of his limousine window given his track record of snubbing the military.

Is President Obama At War With America?  [Scroll down slowly]  Yet at the epicenter of all of this — all the bribes, manipulations, and heavy-handed mandates — is the narrow, political self-interest of one man:  Barack Obama.  America's cultural "right" decries the loss of freedom and the rise of abusive government, while the "left" decries a government that lines the pockets of for-profit corporations (companies that are presumed to be "greedy"), all for the benefit of one self-serving politician.  This is the assault on America's foundational principals and values.  It is the assault of governmental cronyism, on our basic understandings of what is right, and fair.

Tomorrow never dies!  Demagogues throughout the ages have left darkness where there was light.  But even they had characteristics that drove them in their wickedness.  All that's driving Obama is a hatred for his own country, not a trait guaranteed to find success.

Pulling the Plug on the "Living" Constitution.  Barack Obama has long seen the U.S. Constitution as an obstacle to what he considers progress.  In a 2001 interview that surfaced during the presidential campaign, he made this very clear:  the Supreme Court under Justice Earl Warren had failed to break "free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution," Obama mused on a radio show. ... The founders had set up a form of government to protect liberty; he clearly wished they had formed a government to enact equality.

Nanny state will turn U.S. into Europe.  Throughout the health care battle, President Barack Obama asked, if European nations can deliver expansive universal health care to every citizen, why can't the United States do the same.  The president, an ardent Europhile, poses that question about everything from high-speed rail to cheap college tuition.  The answer is that we can — if we're willing to live a European lifestyle.

The Obama Administration Won't Fly the Stars and Stripes in Haiti.  There are things about this country not to be proud about right now.  But they are happening in Congress.  We should all be proud of the Americans in Haiti, and they should be proud to be Americans in Haiti.

Haiting America.  If Fidel Castro or anyone else did a tenth as much good as the U.S. does abroad, you can bet they'd take credit for it.  Strangely, however, the U.S. doesn't.  It aids Haiti, but refuses to fly the American flag.

Obama Chooses Christmas Eve as Night of Darkness For Free World.  The elephant in our living room is what moseyed in when the mainstream media took a holiday and the mask of President Barack Obama began to crack.  How long have we known in our hearts that Obama is not an American?  How long have we known that even though he professes to be one, Obama is not a Christian, nor even a Christian sympathizer and that his actions over the last year prove he is not a benevolent president.  Obama wants a healthcare bill that is signed, sealed and delivered on Christmas Eve.  Obama wants to ruin America and the Free Enterprise system that made America what it is.

The Man Who Despises America.  Barack Obama despises America.  When people who voted for Obama in 2008 — including registered Democrats — start speaking in normal conversational voices at dinner parties, neighborhood gatherings and PTA meetings that the over-inflated ego from Chicago has it "in for America," then it's clear most reasonable people have reached the same conclusion.  The central conviction of Obama's ideology is that America is guilty of limitless moral failures and is the chief architect of the world's ills.  Obama has boundless enmity for America, its key institutions, and its longtime allies.

Obama the Red Avenger.  Obama's early life indicates that young Barry may have been brought up as a Red Avenger against America.  We know that he talks like an anti-capitalist and an anti-Constitutionalist, and that he compulsively apologizes for American actions during the Cold War.  The Cold War was not something we started — it was started by Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and other totalitarian mass murderers long before the Korean War and the Vietnam War, our two hot proxies in the Cold War.  What we haven't understood is how deeply Obama was indoctrinated from childhood onward in the war against America.

Obama the America denier.  Most people involved in public affairs fall into two grand schools:  Some believe that America is a unique nation, a nation built upon extraordinary and good moral values, and a country which is a microcosm of what the world should be.  These people need not be Americans.  Churchill, for example, was an unabashed admirer of America.  Other people believe that America is simply a very arrogant country, a nation inhabited with bumpkins who believe too much in God, and because of its religious faith and confidence, the antithesis of what the world should be.  This animus flourishes outside America, but it also has a strong camp following in America.  Barack Obama is decidedly in the second camp.  He is an "America Denier."

The Obama doctrine.  Mr. Obama is systematically diminishing the United States, effecting its transformation from what was once called "the world's only superpower" to a nation subordinated to the demands of international consensus, organizations, "peer competitors" and even rogue states.  We can expect to see this doctrine in full flower during the president's forays this week into Middle East peacemaking, nuclear disarmament and reordering the world economic system.

Obama's Mind Game.  The moment Obama became president, he upped the signals.  At the swearing in, the entire family eerily chose to wear black and red, colors associated with communism and black nationalism.  Obama's first radio address was broadcast in the Arab world.  Obama returned Britain's gift of a Winston Churchill statue while embracing dictators.

When Our Military is Attacked, Obama is a Nowhere Man.  During a 60 Minutes interview with Steve Croft when the stock market was sinking, Obama giggled.  He wasn't embarrassed afterwards or apologetic.  More worrisome than his bizarre behavior was that he didn't regard it as strange.  Then last week, we've faced with a national crisis, soldiers killed and gravely injured by an apparent Jihadist in the guise of a military doctor.  When announcing the catastrophe what does Obama do?  He drones on and on for three minutes about Native American health issues, even doing a shout out.  In a monotone voice, Obama reports that soldiers have been shot.  He's nonchalant, flat, as though he's reporting the weather.

Obama's Post-American World.  When thinking about what defines the Obama doctrine we might be tempted to say it's blaming America first or apologizing to the world for an unjust America.  It would be accurate to observe that Mr. Obama has done both, but those events merely undergird Obama's larger ideological goal.

Is Barack Obama Anti-American?  Just as an orange deprived of its color becomes the anti-orange, it's reasonable to state that because the overwhelming number of Barack Obama's desires and actions are antithetical to America's essence, he is in fact anti-American.  He's not merely making little changes around the edges, smoothing away rough spots, augmenting existing traits, or getting rid of a few ugly cankers.  Instead, both at home and abroad, Barack Obama is trying to destroy America's essence, that commitment to liberty that makes her unique in this world, and that makes her uniquely American.

Obama Is Average.  [Scroll down]  Look at Obama's speech at the UN General Assembly:  "No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation."  Take the first half of that sentence:  No nation can dominate another.  There is no eight year old who would say that — it's so absurd.  And the second half?  That is adolescent utopianism.  Obama talks in platitudes, but offers a vision to the world of America diminished or constrained, and willing to share leadership in a way that no other presidency and no other great power would.

Signing away sovereignty.  Americans concerned about the decline of American power under the presidency of Barack Obama should turn their radar on and keep it on.  We should be aware that Obama intends to roll out for Senate approval a series of international treaties that will further bind America to the will of the international community if they are ratified.

Obama:  A Man Apart.  When asked if the United States is exceptional, President Obama said America is exceptional and England is exceptional and Greece is exceptional.  That the United States is sui generis didn't cross his mind.

The Roots of the Obamas' Contempt.  Throughout the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama made it obvious that he wanted to fundamentally "change" America.  It was equally clear that his wife Michelle supported him in this endeavor.  She did so time and again in 2008 by giving speeches critical of the country as it existed prior to Obama's presidential run.  What wasn't as evident, until Obama secured the presidency, was why this was so.  Why were he and Michelle so ardent in their belief that America needed "change" to begin with?  The answer is that Barack and Michelle harbor great contempt for this country and flaunt it so brazenly that they appear to be bound together by it.

Obama vs. The American Businessman.  Obama has demonized just about every business sector in America.  Through the 2008 campaign to the present, he has gone after credit card companies, the coal industry, mortgage companies, real estate companies, steelmakers, utilities, drug companies, doctors, oil companies, Wall Street, defense contractors, and health insurance companies, just to name a few.

The Michael Moore of Oslo.  The Nobel Committee chose him wisely because he does, in fact, represent the organization's highest ideals.  He is an American president queasy about the projection of American power.  He is an American president who rejects the notion of American exceptionalism.  He is an American president eagerly in pursuit of legitimacy to be granted him not by those who voted for him but by those who do not cast a vote and who chafe at American leadership.

Is Obama a Closet Conehead?  President Obama has never mentioned black liberation theologian James Cone, despite his longtime pastor Jeremiah Wright's devotion to his work. ... It is apparent that Rev. Wright considers Cone's writings pivotal in comprehending his own teachings.  If that is true, isn't it likely that, at some point during the twenty odd years he mentored Obama, Rev. Wright had suggested the young man read Cone's publications?  Don't pastors usually encourage members of their congregation to read books they consider central to understanding the faith they espouse? ... A follower of Cone's theology would consider the present American system an evil to be annihilated rather than reformed.

They Hate the American We Love.  For those who supported this president out of frustration with either John McCain or with George W. Bush, is it not obvious to you yet that Barack Obama hates America?  Those of you who thought Jeremiah Wright was an anomaly in this man's life, can you now see that this preacher of hate was just part of a long chain of negative, anti-American influences on Obama?  Rather than the Founders of this country, Barack Obama's heroes have always been terrorists, felons and anarchists.  Where most presidents revere Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, and James Madison, the father of the Constitution, this president's role models have been domestic bomber Bill Ayers and Marxist Saul Alinsky...

The Elephant in the Room:  Obama vs. United States.  Watching President Obama apologize last week for America's arrogance — before a French audience that owes its freedom to the sacrifices of Americans — helped convince me that he has a deep-seated antipathy toward American values and traditions.  His nomination of former Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh to be the State Department's top lawyer constitutes further evidence of his disdain for American values.

Pros & Czars:  In order to understand Prez O and why he surrounds himself with various kooks (known as Czars in Prez O's administration) and believes in what he does, you need to first understand that Prez O so dislikes what he sees when he looks out the Oval Office windows that he wants to make America into something it's never been and never was intended to be:  something that looks and functions more like Cuba than Texas, more like France than Wyoming.  He's a revolutionary.  Prez O does not like excellence, entrepreneurialism or capitalism...

Obama Screws Up Latin American Policy.  [Scroll down slowly]  And yet President Obama has been silent.  It isn't as if he has a strict policy against criticizing other nations.  He's been quick enough to condemn Israel for its settlement policies and Honduras for ousting Chávez wannabee Manuel Zelaya.  No, the Obama administration has kept mum because Barack Obama, schooled in leftist fairy tales from the cradle, seems to believe that what the region requires from the United States is not leadership but contrition.

Obama Regresses to Cold War Mythology ... and Switches Sides.  Why is this president always doing the opposite of what needs to be done?  Instead of supporting Iranian protesters, he snubs them.  Instead of snubbing the ousted Honduran would-be dictator, he invites him to Washington.  Instead of leading the world, he apologizes to it.  Instead of offering a new vision, he resurrects hoary clichés.  Instead of promoting liberty, he bows to kings and hugs tyrants.  Some think he acts like an enchanted prince; others think he's a spoiled brat.  But there's a method to this madness...

Regrets only.  Watching Barack Obama this past week was painful.  The new president went out of his way to apologize for America's flaws.  His groveling won rave reviews from some foreigners, the American mainstream media, and others who hold the United States in contempt.  A key component to Obama's approach was apologetically groveling.  Expressing regrets about America is something that apparently comes easily to Obama.

Why Obama Wants America to Fail:  Many think the Obama administration is incompetent, and surely they've proved this, from the vetting of their appointments to handling the limited foreign relationships they've entertained thus far.  But on the domestic agenda they are as sly as foxes, and our future is the henhouse.  And in refusing to allow a "good crisis" to go to waste, the strategic move to remake Amerika anew has begun.

Is Obama Designing the End of Capitalism?  All of Obama's economic policies thus far are designed to drive America into full embrace of socialism.  His chief means for this transformation:  inflation.  He is attempting to inflate the currency through two primary means:  intense deficit spending, and pushing up production costs through union subsidization.  In order to make these measures politically palatable, he cites FDR as an example of good deficit spending; he cites the credit crunch as an excuse for inflationary monetary policy; and he recommends unionization in order to boost wages.

What kind of president thrives on chaos?  Is it conceivable that a president would want matters to get worse?  Lincoln did not pray for a Civil War to befall the country to make him look good; just the opposite.  Washington and the Founders did not want the Revolutionary War. ... What's the actual evidence that Obama is trying to make things worse?  At this point, it can only be inferred from his actions and statements.  Outright proof of sabotage would trigger a political earthquake. ... I don't think we have proof — yet — of outright sabotage at the very top.  We do have reason to worry.  The time to rein in this administration is right now.

The President mocks our Constitution and values.  I watch what is taking place in our country since Obama's presidency began and am saddened at the audacity of his attempt to destroy the country we love and cherish.  His twisted desire to transform us into an enslaved nation regulated by powerful government agencies is a travesty of the ideals granted to the people by the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.  Our Founding Fathers must be weeping in their graves at the sad state of affairs now taking place.  A vicious enemy of our country could not destroy our way of life any quicker than Obama and his Chicago hacks are now feverishly attempting to implement.

Obama should not apologize for America.  President Barack Obama is getting generally positive reviews from the purveyors of conventional wisdom for his performance at the London Group of 20 Summit and in France during a joint appearance with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.  An admiring news story in the New York Times, for instance, all but hailed Obama for setting "a new tone for the alliance with Europe."  Unfortunately, the new tone consists mainly of Obama apologizing for those times "when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward its European allies.

Apologizing for America.  One of President Obama's first official acts was to grant an interview to Al Arabiya, the Arabic language network that broadcasts worldwide.  It signified, aides explained, the new page that Obama meant to turn in relations with the Arab and Muslim worlds.  Just as he did last week in Europe, Obama began the conversation by criticizing America.

How the Obama Revolution Came to America:  There are ten easy steps toward a progressive-socialist-Marxist civil society:  change the popular consensus; destroy Christianity, the traditional family, and existing social mores; transform the culture; install a radical Left mind-control; attain political power; impose strict control of the military and law enforcement; restrict freedom; socialize the economy; erase American sovereignty; and embrace a world without borders. ... This requires a confrontation at all levels of society to undermine, weaken, and replace traditional American values in the schools, media, family, and unions with Gramsci's socialist ideals.

Obama tries out role as apologizer-in-chief.  America, to hear President Obama tell it, is an occasionally arrogant nation struggling with shameful legacies of racism and discrimination, one that bears a large share of the blame for the world's economic and climate crises.  Oh, and our train service is lousy.

Obama Endorses Soros Plan to Loot America.  At the G 20 summit in London, President Barack Obama won rave reviews from reporters, many of whom clamored like school kids for the chance to ask him a question at his news conference, but the official conference document proves that plans are being made for what can only be described as the further looting of American taxpayers in order to feed unaccountable and corrupt global entities.  This is not "global cooperation," as so many in the media described it, but a massive new expansion of the power and authority of international agencies and institutions such as the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

Obama Is Anti-Oil And Anti-American.  Oil producing nations such as Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states, along with Venezuela, will grow rich while Americans will be faced with high costs for gasoline, heating oil, and everything else that depends on oil such as asphalt or even Vaseline.  Meanwhile, oil producers in America, large and small, will take a financial beating.  If you don't like living in a modern, advanced and industrialized society, you will favor this.  If you think Americans consume too much, drive too much, and deserve to be punished for it, you will favor this.

Echo Of Europe.  Sixty-one years to the day after Truman signed the Marshall Plan rebuilding war-torn Europe, President Obama apologizes to French youth for U.S. arrogance.  Our defense of freedom is no shame.

The Obama Counter-Revolution.  Barack Obama and his Democrats are not attempting a revolution in American government or politics:  what Obama is attempting instead is a counter-revolution.  What has been the establishment in America?  Anyone who seriously believes that champions of liberty, opponents of big government, and foes of totalitarianism have been running our institutions over the last fifty years is crazy.  The radicals of the 1960s were not rebelling about what their professors told them:  they were, instead, advancing the collectivist elitism of their professors.

Barack Obama's Incurable Nausea.  For the past several decades, it is clear that the left has suffered from this malady — this chronic unrelenting nausea — that seems only to be relieved by their periodic explosions of verbal vomit.  What is making them so sick?  What exactly can't they stomach?  In a word, America! ... But these pale in comparison to President Obama's groveling apologies and egregious insults to America on his recent trip abroad, starting with his telling a French audience:  "In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world ... there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive."  Why do leftists behave like this?

Obama's Regrettable Precedent.  During his recent European peregrination, our haughty president became the first American president to speak ill of America while on foreign soil.  Actually, it is rare for an American president to speak ill of America anywhere.  President Barack H. Obama does it practically everywhere.  Now that Fidel Castro has quieted down and the French left is in abeyance, President Obama has become America's leading critic.

Obama, Your Slips Are Showing.  At the rate that Obama and the liberals are going, when it comes to piling up the national debt; nationalizing banks and major companies; scuttling our missile defense system; reaching out to Islamic and Communist tyrants; funding ACORN, AmeriCorps and Hamas; discussing nuclear disarmament with Russia at the same time that Iran, Pakistan and North Korea are gearing up; talking tough to Israel while currying favor with the Arabs and the Islamics; I have no idea what will be left to salvage a year-and-a-half down the road.

Obama reaches out to communist states.  US President Barack Obama has pledged to seek a "new beginning" in ties with communist-ruled Cuba as part of a new era of US partnership and engagement with Latin America and the Caribbean.  Before addressing his counterparts in the hemisphere at the Fifth Summit of the Americas in Trinidad, Mr Obama also initiated a handshake with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, one of Washington's most virulent critics in the region.

Obama Welcomes America-Bashing.  Of all the bizarre fictions that the media have spread about Barack Obama, the strangest is that's he non-ideological.  The supreme purveyor of this fantasy is Obama himself.  During his trip to Tobago to meet with Latin American leaders, the president claimed "we can make progress when we're willing to break free from some of the stale debates and old ideologies."  That's a pretty funny sentence when your foreign policy reeks of Jimmy Carter, fermented since 1977.

Obama's Narcissism:  After he sat listening to a 52-minute tirade about America the Fascist Imperialist tyranny, a droll Barack Obama told the media that the rant by Nicaragua's Daniel C. Ortega "wasn't about me."  No, it wasn't.  It was about America which evidently didn't concern the narcissistic U. S. president since it involved John F. Kennedy, not he.  And it did not occur to him to defend America since he himself wasn't named:  thus the narcissism.  Also the lack of patriotism.

Obama Blames America.  [Obama] had gone to Europe not as the voice of his nation, but as a missionary with a message of atonement for its errors.  Which were, as he perceived them — arrogance, dismissiveness, Guantanamo, deficiencies in its attitudes toward the Muslim world, and the presidency of Harry Truman and his decision to drop the atomic bomb, which ended World War II.  No sitting American president had ever delivered indictments of this kind while abroad, or for that matter at home, or been so ostentatiously modest about the character and accomplishment of the nation he led.

The President's Apology Tour:  President Barack Obama has finished the second leg of his international confession tour.  In less than 100 days, he has apologized on three continents for what he views as the sins of America and his predecessors.  Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America "has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe.

A Timid Advocate of Freedom.  In his first press interview as president, he confessed to Arabic television that America had "dictated" to other nations.  No, Mr. President, America has fought to free other nations from dictators.  And in Strasbourg, the president further claimed that America has "showed arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive."  London's Daily Telegraph observed that President Obama "went further than any United States president in history in criticizing his own country's action while standing on foreign soil."

Barack Obama and the CIA.  Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people — not even Jimmy Carter.  Obama's problem is that he does not know who the enemy is.  To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran:  instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution.  Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens.

Preening and Posturing.  "We have been through a dark and painful chapter in our history," President Obama said when he ordered the release of the Justice Department interrogation memos.  Actually, no.  Not at all.  We were attacked on 9/11.  We responded to that attack with remarkable restraint in the use of force, respect for civil liberties, and even solicitude for those who might inadvertently be offended, let alone harmed, by our policies.  We've fought a war on jihadist terror in a civilized, even legalized, way.  Those who have been on the front and rear lines of that war — in the military and the intelligence agencies, at the Justice Department and, yes, in the White House — have much to be proud of.

100 Days of Reckless Photo-Op Hubris.  [Scroll down]  Obama's photo-ops abroad have been more unsettling:  Bowing and scraping before Saudi King Abdullah, trashing America as "arrogant" (talk about a pot and kettle moment) in front of adoring French and German students, chumming it up with Venezuelan thug-in-chief Hugo Chavez.  These are the defining images of a stunt(ed) presidency blind to our enemies and in a perpetual state of (re)pose.

It ain't pretty. The Obama Doctrine.  After a mere 100 days, the "Obama Doctrine" for our foreign and security policies has emerged.  And it's terrifying.  The combination of dizzying naivete, dislike of our allies, disdain for our military, distrust of our intelligence services and distaste for our own country promises the worst foreign policy of our lifetimes.  That includes President Jimmy Carter's abysmal record of failure.  The core tenets of the Obama Doctrine to date would make a charter member of the Weather Underground cheer.

Obama is "boiling a frog," and it is us. Obama cooking up something, can you feel the heat?  I'm not sure yet whether Obama is just an ego-driven fool or a calculated participant following a sinister recipe.  Obama can be spellbinding as he reads lofty speeches off of a TelePrompTer.  But without a script, he can't find his tongue to swiftly condemn piracy against Americans.  He can't stand up for Americans in danger, and he bows to the king of Saudi Arabia where women are oppressed.  Then his flunkies deny that he bowed.

The campaign's over, Obama; it's time to lead.  In Europe, he chastised America for what he called our "arrogance."  In the Caribbean, he gave the dictator of Venezuela a warm smile and a handshake, and called him "amigo."  Before the Saudi king, he bowed low and long.  And just the other day, in a cynical nod to Turkish generals, the American president who campaigned for human rights quietly avoided the word "genocide" in a resolution marking the anniversary of the 1915 Ottoman Turkish slaughter of more than a million Armenian Orthodox Christians.

Obowma and the Saudi King.  Does Obama owe loyalty to Sheikh Abdullah? Did the latter finance his campaign?  Obama spent nearly a billion dollars in his campaign.  Never in history, a politician had this much money at his disposal to campaign.  He never disclosed the source of that money.  There were allegations that he received huge sums of illegal donations, mostly from Arab/Middle Eastern sources.  There were also multiple donations of the maximum $2,000 dollar allowed, by the same donors.  Could all these money have come from one source, the very man who Obama bowed so obsequiously to kiss his hand?

Obamatopia.  Does Obama, whether being nourished on the mother milk of Wright, Ayers, Khalidi, etc, or from his university training and Chicago organizing, really see the U.S. as historically a uniquely oppressive society in terms of race, class, and gender, and hence perhaps have empathy for a Castro or Chavez, at least more than he does for Americans of the sort who go to tea parties and listen to Fox News?

The President Who Hates His Country.  The huge national turnouts at the Tea Parties of April 15 were only the beginning of a movement that was spurred by ordinary Americans waking up to Obama's destruction of our economy, his attempts to reshape America into a banana republic, the grave damage he's inflicted on our military and intelligence services, and his unsavory predilection for embracing our enemies and apologizing non-stop for the most magnificent nation on earth.  In short, they are waking up to the president who hates his country.

Barack Obama Is No Patriot.  Patriots don't associate with and derive sustenance from terrorists, America-haters, and anti-Semites; they don't countenance fixed elections; they don't keep secrets from voters; they don't intimidate their enemies; they don't denigrate and degrade our military; they don't gratuitously interfere with their government's efforts to protect our country; and they don't disdain the symbol of this great Nation, which for over two centuries men and women have fought and died:  the American flag.  Whatever Barack Obama is, we can be certain that he is no patriot!

Obama silent as Oretga trashes America.  This is a man who once professed that the power of words is paramount and ridiculed the view that words don't matter.  We also know that during the campaign he warned that criticism of his wife was "off-limits".  But criticism of America — well, that is fine.  So words do matter to Barack Obama and criticism does rile Obama — just not when they are use to tarnish and defame the image of America.

20 Great Moments from Obama's First 100 Days!  [#16]  After rebuking freedom-loving Venezuelans by shaking hands with their thuggish dictator for life, Hugo Chavez, Barack Obama accepted an anti-American book that Chavez gave him as a gift.  A President who loved the country he led would have been insulted.

Disparaging America from the Oval office.  It must be said that Barack Obama tosses out apparently feckless suggestions about important matters rather flippantly.  He wants to share the wealth; told a pre-election questioner that he would raise capital gains taxes even if it reduced government revenues, out of "fairness"; and has transformed the foreign visit into an itinerant, vicarious, confessional, where he seeks expiation for his country and his own predecessors, interspersed with the exchange of unlikely gifts — an iPod to the British and Commonwealth monarch of 57 years, and the "Idiot's Bible" of Latin American socialism from Venezuela's Hugo Chavez.

A Republican Platform For The 21st Century.  I don't know about you, but I was totally disgusted with President Obama's shameless Apology Tour around the world.  Apologize to Europeans, on whom we've spent untold oceans of blood and treasure to rescue and defend over a century?  Apologize to banana republic dictators like Chavez and Ortega in Latin America?  To allow them to slander us as Imperialists, even as they oppress their own peoples?  How am I supposed to feel proud as an American now?

It's no longer a laughing matter.  When the President embarrassed America with his lame gift to the British Prime Minister, it was so sad it was funny.  I giggled under my breath.  When the One could not convey any coherent text without the aid of his teleprompter, I snickered until I realized that these words were not his.  If the machine failed, he was absolutely lost and could not find a meaningful conveyance with two hands and a flashlight.  When he then went on the apology tour of Europe; bowed to the Saudi king and shook hands with Hugo Chavez, I grinned, but the laughter was absent when I came to the conclusion that this man truly despises what America stands for.

Obama the Destroyer.  If somebody were deliberately trying to undermine the very fabric of these United States, he would first vow not just to change its policies but to completely "change America," and then would do just about everything Barack Obama already has begun to do as president.

Limp legacy of the wet and weak.  Barack Obama's legacy is coming sharply into focus, four years early.  He's out to transform "a nation of laws," once the pride of the Anglo-Saxon heritage and exemplar to the world, into "a nation of feelings."  We won't need judges, just social workers damp with empathy.  This is in line with the president's larger vision, to cut America down to a size a community organizer could manage, making it merely one of the nice nations of the world, like Belgium or Brazil.  The home of the brave and the land of the free would become what our English cousins call "wet," weak, ineffectual, fragile, fearful, and inconsequential.

Patriotism in the Age of Obama.  During the presidential campaign, many citizens (and potential voters) took offense to the fact that candidate Obama refused to wear a US flag pin on his lapel as had become customary for many politicians after 9/11.  Upon winning the nomination of the Democratic Party, lo and behold, the pin appeared on Obama's lapel. ... Now that Obama is in the White House, this lack of patriotism, and disdain for the American flag in particular, is being reflected in real life circumstances.  A pattern is emerging and it is quite disturbing.

Obama's regret-and-redemption road show.  On Thursday [6/4/2009], Obama will indulge his hubris in Cairo by treating 1.4 billion Muslims to a lecture on American failures, a subject on which most of his intended audience needs no further instruction.  He will go on to explain how his own presidency is a repudiation of that checkered past.

'Inner Muslim' at work in Cairo.  Now it's on to Normandy, to apologize to the Germans.  It's the least an American president can do after the way the Allied armies left so much of Europe in rubble.  There's a lot of groveling to do for what America accomplished in the Pacific, too.  This prospect should appeal to Barack Obama, who relishes the role of Apologizer-in-Chief.

Barack Obama's 10 mistakes in Cairo.  [#1]  "Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail."  With this phrase, Obama dismissed the notion of American exceptionalism, the belief that the United States occupies a special place among nations.  Obama clearly doesn't see the United States as a "Shining City upon a Hill" or its history, constitution or way of life giving it special qualities or responsibilities in the world.

The president's Cairo speech:  worse than feared.  The president said: "I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.  But that same principle must apply to Muslim perceptions of America.  Just as Muslims do not fit a crude stereotype, America is not the crude stereotype of a self-interested empire."  The same principle?  Shouldn't an American president feel an attachment to his own country above all?  Shouldn't misrepresentations aimed against that country energize him more?  And yet the tone of this speech suggested that if anything, such misrepresentations energize him rather less.

Who Has Lost Their Way?  In the first five months of his presidency, Obama has traveled the world apologizing for the transgressions of America committed by the 43 previous administrations.  He has used terms such as we "went off course," "lost our way," and "made mistakes."  In the most recent leg of the never-ending apology tour, Obama addressed the Muslim World with one of the wordiest requests for forgiveness offered to date.  All of this under normal circumstances would be quite disturbing.  But coming less than a decade after the atrocities of 9/11, these statements about America's sins against the Muslim world are alarming to hear from the mouth of the POTUS.

Mutual Of Obama's Wild Kingdom.  Like a scene from The Day the Earth Stood Still, President Obama, in his Cairo speech, has just informed the nations of the Earth, "Any world order that elevates one nation or any group will not prevail."  With these words, he has provided his plan to abandon the present world pecking order.  No longer will the United States, the world's best hope against tyranny and fascism, be front and center.  Instead, the nations of the world are going to work together in some type of global mutualism.

The Unsustainable Obama Presidency.  Less than six months into it and the Barack Obama presidency has been unmitigated mayhem.  Barack-caused disasters befall the nation on a near daily basis, one can scarcely keep track anymore.  We have endured his offensive schmoozing with slave owners tour in the Arab states, punctuated by his contemptible speech in Cairo, in which the president spouted flagrant falsehoods about the charms of Islam, while berating the United States for being a bit churlish about radical Muslim ideology after 9/11.

Obamamotive.  The President is fond of saying that we are five percent of the world's population, but we consume twenty-five percent of the world's resources.  This implies that we waste all these resources.  We absolutely do not.  We use these resources to feed, clothe, shelter, defend and provide all manner of goods and services for not only ourselves but a great deal of the world's population.  In addition, it's not as though we forcibly take resources from others; we buy them.  Moreover, we wouldn't have to buy so much of them if we were allowed to produce our own.

Speak for America, President Obama.  The developments in Tehran are a potentially big moment, signaling the possible transformation or at least reformation of the Iranian regime.  American principles and American interests argue for support of the Iranian people in this crisis.  And where is the American president?  Silent.

America's Supine Leader.  Since becoming president, Obama has repeatedly demonstrated his affinity for tyrants.  First, he warmly embraced the reprobate who perverted Venezuela into a police state.  Then, he called the depraved mastermind of the 1972 Munich Massacre "a great champion of peace".  Now, he exalts Iran's homicidal dictator.  Not unlike Squeaky Fromme, Obama is irresistibly attracted to bloody hands.  The president is a self-described "progressive", and the progressive narrative is that American misbehavior catalyzes worldwide evil.  After accepting this inversion of reality, one invariably concludes that those who hate the United States must be the good guys.

After Obama Fails.  Indeed, from the Sotomayor pick and anti-business rhetoric to the endless lecturing about America's sins, Mr. Obama is starting to sound a lot like his former pastor.  To be sure Obama is not as grating and shrill as Mr. Wright but closer to something more like Jeremiah-lite.  In other words, Mr. Obama's strategy seems to be to convince Americans to drink his socialist tonic out of sheer guilt.  I'm not sure what is so inspiring about all of this.

Jeremiah Wright Foreign Policy:  Anyone familiar with the views of Barack Obama's pastor of twenty years might wonder if Reverend Jeremiah Wright is the chief inspiration behind the president's foreign policy.  The president's overseas forays — dubbed the "American Apology Tour" — have featured Obama issuing one apology after another on behalf of a U.S. he has pronounced guilty of countless transgressions. ... Wright, too, found unlimited fault with America.

Liberals Don't Need No Stinking Principles! When Barack Obama takes every opportunity to tell the world how awful we are — or at least how awful we were until he got elected — it has to make people wonder if, like his missus, he had never been proud of America prior to his canonization by the media.  It doesn't make things a lot better when he makes obviously foolish remarks, such as insisting that the U.S. is one of the largest Muslim nations, and that Muslims played a major role in the creation of our republic.

Why Doesn't Obama Care About Freedom?  The Washington Post editorial on Cuba only scratched the surface of the dangers we face from this White House.  Ultimately, the question that has to be seriously addressed by the Post and other media is:  What should we do about the fact that the President of the United States is allied with those forces that want to bury us?

Obama the Redeemer.  Is there a pattern emerging, given the Cap and Trade bill recently passed at Obama's urging?  Indeed there is.  His apology tour for past American "sins" (all occurring before his reign, he explains) was not enough for Obama to cleanse our collective historical record.  He wants to go beyond being the redeemer.  He wants to be the rectifier.  The military has been complicit in war crimes, so we should gut the military so as to minimize the risk of similar "crimes" in the future.  Has America,as the great industrial power, used its might to pollute the earth?  Gut American industry with taxes, regulations, and cap and trade (which will empower our competitors and reduce America to a second-rate, if we are lucky, industrial power).

Obama: Student Radical.  So now, nearly six months into the Obama presidency, the mainstream media has finally done a bit of the candidate background reporting it declined to do during the campaign — other than in Wasilla — and whaddya know?  The New York Times unearthed a 1983 article called, "Breaking the War Mentality," that Columbia student Barack Obama wrote for a campus newspaper.  The article shows that Obama dreaded American "militarism" and its "military-industrial interests," while effusing enthusiasm for the dangerously delusional nuclear-freeze movement.

Why Does Barack Obama Hate Our Economy?  I think it's a question a lot of us — both right and left — are asking right now.  We originally had such high hopes for President Obama.  While his wife obviously hates America, not even considering liking it until it looked like her husband might get the highest job in the land, it always seemed that Barack was at least apathetic about the existence of America.  While he wouldn't shed a tear if it was destroyed, he didn't seem to mind it being around either.  But his actions lately have shown that not to be true. ... At this point, even the most ardent Obama supporter has to admit he's actively trying to destroy the American economy.

Obama Can't Even Acknowledge US Won Cold War.  Apparently President Obama loathes our country so much, he can't even admit that we won the Cold War against the Soviets.  In an interview with Fox News' Major Garret, President Obama couldn't bring himself to acknowledge that it was the strength and resolve of the United States that eventually led to the collapse of that evil empire.

Obama on Afghanistan:  victory is a four-letter word.  [Scroll down slowly]  I suspect Obama is ignorant in the worst way:  he's ignorant of the extent of his ignorance.  Or perhaps he's not ignorant at all, but purposely twisting the truth.  Or maybe each, at different times.  This tendency of Obama's has been in evidence in many of his speeches:  his summary of the Cold War, which he got entirely wrong.  His Cairo address to the Muslim world on their history and that of the West, in which "almost every one of his references was either misleading or incomplete."  On the campaign trail, when he showed astounding historical ignorance (or prevarication; take your choice) in his mischaracterization of the Berlin airlift.  Obama's errors are not random; they fit a certain pattern...

Obama Grovels to Russia.  The press, true to form, is hailing Obama's trip to Russia as statesmanlike.  Reality, as usual, is different.  When Obama took a pass on missile defense and agreed with Russia's Medvedev to reduce our nuclear arsenal by one-third, he accomplished worse than nothing.  He sold out our Eastern European allies, dumping a desperately needed missile defense plan for Poland.  As he did so, he revised history, claiming we did not win the cold war.  Obama said, "We don't have to diminish other people in order to recognize our role in that history."  Yes, he said that.  And it gets worse.

Obama's Immoral Authority.  One has to ask:  why did this man run for President?  The knee jerk reaction to such a question is that a man (or woman) runs for President because he loves America.  It is becoming increasingly clear that Obama ran for President because he hates America and wants very much to "change" it.  "There is also no question," Obama said, "that Guantanamo set back the moral authority that is America's strongest currency in the world."  No, Mr. President.  Your position on Iran, Israel, Honduras, Chavez, Ukraine, Georgia, and the American taxpayer did that.

Why Should WE Pay For Free Health Insurance for Illegal Aliens?  [Scroll down]  There is no getting around the mounting evidence that the liberal Democrats in our Congress are no longer serving the American people; they are instead assisting Obama in his quest to destroy this country and deliver it into the hands of the corrupt and incompetent United Nations.  There is some indication in polls that even the real American Democrats are in agreement with that.  They now have the votes necessary to carry out just about any vicious and damaging plan they wish and with the concurrent approval and shepherding from the White House, it can be a done deal.

Victory Is So Yesterday.  There is a reason that the word victory conjures up in Barack Obama's mind the 64-year-old image of Hirohito and MacArthur:  he has never acknowledged the much more recent American victory in Iraq.  If he had not politicized and downplayed the U.S. accomplishments there, he would have a sterling example of an American triumph in asymmetric conditions.  Instead, he inspires the headline (seen by friends and enemies alike) "Obama:  'Victory' Not Necessarily Goal in Afghanistan."  Isn't that grand?

Regardless of Where He Was Born, Barack Obama Is No American.  In just over six months, this president has been exposed as the most hateful and dangerous anti-American activist to have ever occupied the White House.  Some of the more outrageous examples of Obama's treasonous behavior since January 20:
  •   Seized private enterprises & converted to government entities
  •   Sought to cut the defense budget in order to help fund social programs
  •   Denounced America and American leaders while on foreign soil
  •   Apologized for America on numerous occasions, also on foreign soil
  •   Ignored or shunned strong American allies while cavorting with communist dictators...
  •   Isolated and betrayed the state of Israel
  •   Bowed to a foreign king
  •   Declared that America is not a Christian nation

Honoring an America-Hater.  The Medal of Freedom is the nation's highest civilian honor.  Past recipients include John Wayne, Norman Rockwell and Vaclav Havel.  This year, one of the 16 recipients President Obama selected is former Irish President and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson.  Bad choice.

Demolition Man:  Building the Anti-America.  Barack Obama is proving himself to be a destructive nihilist with capitalism, the Constitution, the Rule of Law, and the traditional American experience in his crosshairs. ... When Obama emphatically says he doesn't want to run the banks, Wall Street, or the auto industry, he is telling the truth in a sideways sort of way because he abhors work with a passion. ... Obama is a continental divide of American understanding, a gushing river of American anti-matter.

A U.S. President, Raised on KGB Propaganda.  From his communist mentor Frank Marshall Davis to the unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, Barack Obama has always gravitated towards people holding radical leftist views akin to those of [Manuel] Zelaya.  He eagerly promoted leftist ideology as an ACORN activist and later when he taught and developed theories that opposed the American system of individual liberties in favor of unsustainable group entitlements at the expense of producers — theories that advocated placing the people under the controlling "care" of the state.

Manufactured Healthcare Crisis.  If there were ever any doubt that Barack Obama personifies the Crisis Strategy, it should long since have been removed for anyone with a mind. ... For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the Crisis Strategy was the brainchild of two radical socialist college professors, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven.  The idea was to overwhelm government with demands for services to the point where the system would collapse and provide an opening for the socialists to take over.

Finding no buyers for snake oil.  Master politician that he is, Barack Obama is a lousy calculator.  He spectacularly misjudged the American public's appetite for a government nanny.  Or maybe he miscalculated the power of his slippery tongue to sell government snake oil.  His apparent willingness to abandon the attempt — for now — to nationalize the health-care industry appears to defer the Democratic first step in remaking the home of the brave and the land of the free into Little America, cutting it down to a size incapable of intimidating the likes of Switzerland or Swaziland.

White House Character:  [Scroll down]  Obama also fails the test of standing up for our country.  His strongest suit in the area of diplomacy seems to be to travel to foreign countries and apologize for American misdeeds or disavow long standing policies.  Nations that have risked much to be our allies — the United Kingdom, Israel, former Soviet republics — are thus taught that we cannot be depended on. ... He is a president ashamed of American exceptionalism, and, by extension, of America herself.

Obama's Brick Wall:  The American People.  The litany of his shocks to the system is too voluminous to detail in full, but just consider his calculated takeover of GM, his fraudulently marketed trillion-dollar spending schemes, his cap-and-trade boondoggle, his unilateral declaration of an end to the war on terror, his policy to Mirandize terrorists on the battlefield, his cavorting with terrorist dictators, his soft betrayal of Israel, his ceaseless foreign-soil apologies for America, and his crusade to subsume the health care industry.  These are not tweaks to a glorious constitutional republic, but a frantic effort to undo this republic brick by brick.

Whose Medical Decisions? (Part IV):  What they are trying to do is to create an America very unlike the America that has existed for centuries -- the America that people have been attracted to by the millions from every part of the world, the America that many generations of Americans have fought and died for.  This is the America for which Michelle Obama expressed her resentment before it became politically expedient to keep quiet.  It is the America that Reverend Jeremiah Wright denounced in his sermons during the 20 years when Barack Obama was a parishioner, before political expediency required Obama to withdraw and distance himself.

Rush, Beck Warn Obama Administration Trying to Bring Country to Its Knees.  They warned back in 2008 what might happen if Barack Obama was elected president, and according to conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh and Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck, a lot of bad stuff is unfolding right before our eyes.  Limbaugh appeared on Beck's Aug. 26 program to discuss the threat of the federal government attempting to regulate the media.  He explained the president's policy maneuvers were evidence that this can happen — with very limited opposition in the media.

Did the White House Green Light Lockerbie Bomber's Release?  The recent events in Scotland show the futility of treating a war as a criminal justice issue.  Did Gordon Brown get a green light from the Obama administration to let a convicted murderer, Al Megrahi, go "scot free"?

The Storm Upon Us.  One of three possible scenarios is currently being played out in the United States.  The first option, is simply that the Obama Administration is the most corrupt, dishonest, and inept Administration that America has ever been burdened with.  The second option, is that the Obama Administration despises individual freedom, capitalism, free-enterprise, and is hell-bent on transforming the United States into a fascist/communist collective — a regime that will be run by a venal, ruthless, power-hungry elite.

Another Failed Presidency.  We admire those presidents whose narratives not only touch our own, but who seem stronger, wiser, and smarter than we are. ... But not this president.  It's not so much that he's a phony, knows nothing about economics, is historically illiterate, and woefully small minded for the size of the task — all contributory of course.  It's that he's not one of us.

Obama's Foreign Policy:  Abandon Democracy.  There has been a fundamental change in American foreign policy under President Obama — a change that until now, has been little recognized.  One of the core principles of American policy, that has guided presidents of both parties over the past fifty years, has been largely reversed under the current administration.

The President Without a Country.  Reading and hearing the audacious, shocking statements of the man who was recently elected our president — a young black man living the impossible dream of millions of young Americans, past and present, black and white — I want to ask him, "Just what country do you think you're president of?"

Are we Americans citizens or are we subjects?  [Nancy Pelosi] sees the American people as subjects, not citizens.  So does the president.  "The Constitution is a charter of negative liberties," President Obama said in 2001.  "Says what states can't do to you.  Says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf."

Barack Obama and the CIA.  If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself.  Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people — not even Jimmy Carter.

Humorous video: Jack Webb Lectures Barack Obama.

The Emerging Obama Doctrine:  The first aspect of the Obama Doctrine is a natural outgrowth of his lifelong associations. Reverend Jeremiah Wright's repeated anti-American screeds, William Ayers' Vietnam era exploits (which were lionized in Obama's political and academic circles), the communist leanings and affiliations of Obama's family and friends have led Obama to the belief that America must apologize for its many evils.  American contrition has always been a central tenet of the Obama agenda.

Brainwashing you can believe in.  When Barack Obama told a Missouri crowd last November, "We are five days from fundamentally changing the Unites States of America," he meant exactly what he said and had a plan to do just that.  What is so striking about that statement is that in order to "fundamentally change" America, Obama will have to destroy the foundation laid by the founding fathers and replace it with one that serves his socialist ideology.

Obama Is Redefining the American Presidency.  Evidence mounts daily that bringing relief and prosperity to Americans does not describe Obama's core understanding of the federal government's role.  An alternative understanding of his agenda is coming into focus.  One based on this:  He is, first, a citizen of the globe — a globalist — and he is, second, an American.  Evidence supporting that notion surfaced before the election.

If Obama Weakens America, Will The World Be More "Fair?"  Are they agendas for the betterment of America?  Or are they agendas for the betterment of the rest of the world?  I'm referring to President Obama's policy agendas.  Despite how much he reasserts that we "must" embrace this or that policy simply because it is "the right thing to do," it's becoming increasingly difficult to claim that Obama's stated plans and intentions advance any sense of American well-being.

Obama's Competing Waterloos.  If you had any doubt before, you cannot reasonably have it now:  Obama believes America has been a very bad actor on the world stage and has much to atone for.  Conversely, he sees little good in the unprecedented benevolence of this super-empire over the years.  And some of you wonder why we think he's got a chip on his shoulder against the country he leads?

Why Obama's Boyish Utopia Endangers Us:  On America's image in the world, in President Obama's utopia he is fine with the idea of "American Exceptionalism" being challenged or even turned upside down.  Yet in reality no country has suffered more loss of its own, for the welfare of others in history.  To Obama, an America that stands tall in contrast to others seems arrogant.  To our enemies, an America that seems ashamed of herself seems weak.

Why Obama-World Is Dangerous.  In President Obama's utopia he is fine with the idea of "American Exceptionalism" being challenged or even turned upside down.  To Obama, an America that stands tall in contrast to others seems arrogant.  To our enemies, an America that seems ashamed of herself seems weak.

Obama The Impotent:  A Dangerous Delusion.  Barack Obama may not get everything he wants, but make no mistake — his policies are statist in design, intent, and effect.  Just because he won't achieve total success doesn't mean he can't cripple the Republic in the trying.

Is Obama pushing to intentionally make America a second-rate world power?  The deficit run up by the first Obama budget was four times larger than the already huge deficit imposed by the last Bush budget.  Added together the Bush and Obama deficits have seriously weakened the confidence other nations, and specifically investors in those nations, have in the American economy and thus in the American dollar.  Investments are now going "off shore" more than ever.

Breaking the Hippie Spell at the White House.  The systematic dismantling of America continues at an almost daily pace, leaving observers reeling in shock and disbelief.  But Obama's shock-a-day-White House is in reality a political strategy, main goal of which is distraction.  The media, mainstream and otherwise, keep churning out the "Look what Obama's done now" message, sustaining intentionally or not Obama's political strategy in action.

Barack Obama's America-effacing presidency.  On the morning after the deadliest instance of Islamist terrorism in the United States since 9/11, President Obama warned the American public not to "jump to conclusions" about the motives that impelled Nidal Hasan's rampage of mass murder at Fort Hood. ... In Hasan's case, it was imperative to resist the obvious connection between Islamism and the killings because, in Obama's view, Americans habitually are on the verge of persecuting Muslims.  As the president's wife once put it, America is "just downright mean."

It's Time Obama Apologize to 1945 Germany.  In China, President Obama apologized for America ... again.  The problem with frequent apologies is that they soon beg the question:  Where does one stop, once one starts?

Obama's expatriate years.  Surprisingly little attention has been paid to the crucial years Barack Obama spent growing up in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 1967 to 1971, ages 6 to 10 in his life.  These formative years, when a child first spends significant time in the wider world beyond his family environment, must have taught him many lessons about America, some of them very unpleasant, given the particular situation of his family.

Barack Obama's Rules for Revolution:  The Alinsky Model.  The guru of Sixties radicals, [Saul] Alinsky urged his followers to be flexible and opportunistic and say anything to get power, which they can then use to destroy the existing society and its economic system.  Alinsky died in 1972, but left behind an organization in Chicago dedicated to his malicious ideas.  This team hired Barack Obama in 1986 when he was 23 and taught him how to organize for radical transformation.

The Five Obama Fails.  Nearly one year after Obama's inauguration, we have an economy heading in the wrong direction, unemployment rising, a deficit that will double, banks failing, a war command which is virtually ignored, 9/11 terrorists given Constitutional rights at a civil trial, and an administration hell-bent on destroying — not "reforming" — the world's best health care system.

Five More Amateur Mistakes By the Obama Administration.  Most Americans find the idea that they should bow to another person offensive and they find it even more galling when their President does it.  It's almost an insult by proxy.  If even your leader is willing to admit he's inferior, what does it say about you?

Take Our Playbook, Please.  The time for words has passed.  President Obama and Eric Holder are placing American lives in danger and openly aiding and abetting America's enemies.  Obama and Holder want to give civilian trials to confessed 9/11 mass-murderer Kalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) and his accomplices.  Giving civilian trials to non-U.S. citizens and unlawful combatants not even protected by the Geneva Conventions is both unconstitutional and a violation of the oath of office to defend Americans against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Totalitarian Sentimentality.  The USA has descended from its special position as the principled guardian of Western civilization and joined the club of sentimentalists who have until now depended on American power.  In the administration of President Obama we see the very same totalitarian sentimentality that has been at work in Europe, and which has replaced civil society with the state, the family with the adoption agency, work with welfare, and patriotic duty with universal "rights."

Obama's Progressive Goose and Our Conservative Gander:  Obama's diplomacy essentially boils down to preening like a peacock on the world stage.  Endlessly apologizing for America and appeasing her enemies looks like a joke — but only to his critics.  Obama appeases tyrants of all stripes and consistently tries to ingratiate himself with the Muslim ummah — only to lose everyone's respect and turn himself into the butt of jokes.  But it only looks like a foreign policy disaster to his enemies on the right.  As far as the progressives are concerned, bowing down to the third-world despots is exactly the right and proper thing to do.

The Obama Administration's Plot Against America.  The American people elected President Obama on the basis of his vague promises of "change," which was assumed by the majority of voters to be something good for our nation.  Fifteen months into his term it is time for us to stop deluding ourselves with his good intentions and accept the fact we must immediately stop the madness of his agenda in order to regain control of our destiny and country.  It is time for us to accept the fact that Mr. Obama's administration has no appreciation or respect for our country's heritage.

We Have Not Yet Begun to Fight.  [Scroll down]  We do not deserve the government Obamanation is giving us.  Nor do we deserve to be scorned as an America that Rev. Jim Wallis -- Obama spiritual advisor, version two -- calls "the great captor and destroyer of human life...totalitarian [in our] claims and designs."  Obama clearly doesn't like us.  And he's laid out his goals, expressing open admiration for, variously, the genocidal systems of Mao and Stalin, and especially Islamic culture.

Barack Obama:  Enemy Within.  We have a president loath to acknowledge American exceptionalism.  Indeed, the weight of the evidence suggests that our chief executive, through both word and deed and with malice aforethought, seeks to undermine — if not dismantle — that exceptionalism.  At one time we properly called such activity anti-American, seditious, or even — under certain circumstances — treasonous.  Today we call it "progressive."

US apologises to American Indians.  The US formally apologised to American Indian tribes today [5/19/2010] for "ill-conceived policies" and acts of violence committed against them.

Revenge of the Coffee House Marxists.  When I was a political science graduate student in the 1980s, the Cold War was still raging, and my university was filled with leftists who were pulling for the Sandinistas, the Nicaraguan Marxists, and other various and sundry Communists around the globe to defeat Ronald Reagan and the United States.  These folk used to meet in the local coffee house and practice talking Marxist gibberish to one another.  After the Cold War ended, I often wondered what happened to my "Coffee House Marxists."  Where did they go? What are they doing now?  It turns out that a substantial chunk of them have gone to work for the Obama Administration.

Disgracing America.  President Barack Obama, who got his start in politics in the living room of domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and spent his first year in office apologizing for American history, has now decisively tipped U.S. foreign policy toward America's enemies.  Events of the past week have left no doubt.  There is a pattern.  President "Let No Crisis Be Wasted" Obama twists events to justify his radical agenda.  A financial crisis becomes the excuse for a massive health care entitlement.  An oil spill is exploited to push an unpopular energy tax.  And a jihadist publicity stunt — the Gaza flotilla — becomes the occasion to throw Israel to the wolves.

Mr. President, Is America Exceptional?  You Betcha!.  During the 2008 presidental campaign, Barack Obama was asked whether he believed in American exceptionalism.  Sure, he said, "just like the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."  In other words, the only people who think there is anything exceptional about America are some naïve, insular Americans.

The Novel Presidency.  Obama may be the first black president in the history of the U.S., but he will be remembered more for his policies that have initiated the decline of American's exceptional nature — his stated goal, which was more than apparent a few months back when he announced that "whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower."  Now that is a novel statement from the leader of the free world.  Sadly, the president's obvious disdain for America's superpower status is not the only example of his novel ideas for America's future.

Barack Obama Is Making Me Laugh.  [Scroll down]  So I listened to his speech on immigration and chuckled as he lectured us, yet again, on what America is — as if he had a clue about what America is.  His contempt for us is so palpable.  As if he had any respect for what makes America great — free speech, individual rights, entrepreneurship, and privacy rights.  As if he had a clue as to why legal immigrants come here — to escape tyrants and would-be tyrants like him.

The First Special Interest.  President Barack Obama, and the clutch of conspirators he calls advisors, would do well to recall what the first special interest was.  They won't, because they have an agenda:  not to see that the laws are faithfully executed, as the executive branch is supposed to, but to establish a new form of government.

Bolton:  'Obama Won't Defend American Interests'.  "The American people want to be defended.  They want an American president who will stand up for American interests, and I think they will understand that's not Barack Obama."

Are the Sins of the Fatherless the Root of Obama's Tyranny?  Does Obama's anti-democratic ideology result from his dysfunctional childhood?  An intriguing book, Faith of the Fatherless:  The Psychology of Atheism, by Paul Vitz, argues this type background is a common precursor to the classic tyrant's personality.  This suggests Barack's beef with America might result from his own deficient past.

The Livable Communities Act.  President Obama's flippant dismissal of American exceptionalism last year stirred a lot of criticism because it suggested he did not believe the United States held a special place in the world.  It also suggested America's unique history is, to the president, no big deal.  Now, with fellow travelers exercising power at all levels of government, progressives can do more than just belittle the idea of American exceptionalism.  They can enact policies to make America unexceptional — diminishing our quality of life and dampening opportunities for the next generation.

Obama Backing Mosque Defies Religious Freedom.  As the emotional debate over building the Ground Zero Mosque continues, President Obama announced his support for the Muslim initiative. ... In citing the need to preserve "the writ of our Founders," Obama ignores history and a major concern about Islam cited by two of our Founding Fathers.  He also fails to grasp the concept that religious tolerance does not mean embracing religious intolerance.

More about the proposed Ground Zero mosque.

Obama administration indicts America.  Move over Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Syria.  The State Department has made it official:  The United States violates human rights.  In an unprecedented move, the Obama administration submitted a report to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights detailing the progress and problems in dealing with human rights issues in this country.  The document is a strange combination of left-wing history and White House talking points.

The State Dept.'s Campaign Brochure.  When the president violated all traditional comportment and protocol in his State of the Union address in January by blasting Supreme Court justices sitting a few feet away from him, he said he didn't think "American elections should be bankrolled by America's most powerful interests, or worse by foreign entities."  Now his administration has reversed that image.  Our own State Department has had the taxpayers bankroll what amounts to an Obama campaign pamphlet concocted for the consumption of a foreign entity:  the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Human Rights Kowtow.  President Obama and his State Department have been widely criticized for downplaying human rights in their efforts to engage abusive regimes in Iran, China, Russia, Burma and even Sudan.  But there's at least one country whose human rights record merits the Administration's minute scrutiny:  the United States.

What Obama Thinks of America:  Sometimes the best way to find out what a person thinks about you is to find out what he tells others.  That's why the report on America's human rights record filed by the Obama administration with the U.N. is particularly interesting.

It's what Obama stands for, not what religion he practices.  Their dominations were different, some did not go to church, but every iconic American president -- Washington, Lincoln, the Roosevelts, Reagan and Kennedy — believed in a covenant between God and this country, in a special grace on this country, and in a special role for this country, in perfecting itself as a democracy, and becoming a beacon to all of the world.  They saw it as a city on hill, and the last, best hope of humanity; he sees a place with unresolved problems, that throws its weight around in the world.

"Is Barack Obama anti-American?"  David Limbaugh stopped by HUMAN EVENTS's office to give an exclusive interview on his new bestseller, "Crimes Against Liberty:  An Indictment of President Barack Obama."

How Obama Sees America.  The Obama administration recently submitted a 29-page report to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on human rights in America.  It won the praise of the ACLU, which points out that the report "correctly acknowledges the need for improvement in several key areas, including racial justice, women's rights, LGBT [Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, and Transgender People] rights and discrimination against Muslims and Americans of South Asian and Arab descent." ... The report reads like a term paper by a very earnest and very politically correct college freshman.

Obama tells the U.N. how great he is.  President Obama's administration recently submitted a report to the United Nations on human rights in America.  The 29-page report shows the nation badly flawed but fortunate to have a Nobel Prize winner as its leader.

By Any Means Possible — The American Civil War of 2010.  Obama has banned use of the words Islamic extremism, jihadist, Islamist and Islamic terrorism, among others, from the official administration language; preferring instead to state America is at war with radical extremists.  Add to these fundamental changes in course and policy the addition of self-described "Devout Muslims" to his administration, and one understands why a majority of America seriously questions his motives.  Marxists/Socialists, as history has shown us, will do and say anything in their quest for power.

United States Declares War on Arizona, Literally.  [Scroll down]  Obama proves over and over again his absolute disdain for our Constitution and his deep hate for our country.  His every speech contains at least one derogatory comment about the United States, and an equal amount of how great is the world of Islam.  And there are some people who just can't see the truth for all of the lies that come out of his mouth.

Another Perspective On Obama's 'Brillance'.  Though Obama claims to be a Christian, he was brought up at a very impressionable age as a Muslim.  His long "Christian" relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his career choices, his Senate voting record — have all been about as anti-American establishment as they could be!  Since he'sbeen president, his foreign policy actions have almost all been anti-American establishment:  dissing our allies, stalling troop renewal in Afghanistan to allow al-Qaida time to rebuild its strength, apologizing to the Egyptians and responding to aggressive enemy threats by doing nothing except trying to talk nice.

U.N. report clearly not treason, just treasonous.  Apparently the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton's State Department consider our republican form of government a human rights deficiency.

David Limbaugh:  'Obama has a grudge against America.  It's personal.'.  [David Limbaugh's] new runaway bestselling book, "Crimes Against Liberty:  An Indictment of President Barack Obama," has struck a chord with the public, debuting at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.  An unusual page-turner for its genre, Limbaugh's book presents exactly what the title suggests:  a meticulous case against the President of the United States for his unprecedented assault on ordered liberty and the American way of life.

Barry Soetoro's Indonesian Expatriate Hell.  In his most formative years, the boy who became President of the United States was, in other words, subjected to humiliating, demeaning membership in a lower caste and cognizant both of the seemingly undeserved privileges of children born to high-caste expatriates and the grinding poverty of ordinary Indonesians among whom his family lived.  That a deep anger and sense of unfairness would develop in such a situation seems more than likely, laying the groundwork for resentment of American power and wealth, and an embrace of anti-colonialist ideologies which undergirded a quest for political revenge, later in life.  It was not a pleasant life Barack Obama endured in Jakarta as the child Barry Soetoro.  Regrettably, all Americans are now forced to share some of his pain.

Review of David Limbaugh's Crimes Against Liberty.  "This book is about a young presidency," Limbaugh opens.  "[Y]oung, but already the most destructive in American history  Everything about Barack Obama's radical background signals his visceral contempt for America — its culture, its values, and its political and economic systems.  His unmistakable goal is to bring America down to size — an America that has been, in his view, too big for its britches, selfish, exploitative, unfairly wealthy, arrogant, and dismissive."

Obama, the Academic Zombie.  Obama is the child of two Ph.D.'s, and other than having been a senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, he has no appreciable practical work experience.  Given his upbringing's remote fatherly attention and his rejection of his mother's native culture, it may be safe to say that Obama is more truly a progeny of academia than he is of either of his natural parents.  One writer currently claims Obama is channeling his father's Kenyan anti-colonialism.  More accurately, it is the groupthink of academia to which Obama is fully assimilated and loyally patriotic, not America or Kenya.

Obama Asks Thug Nations To Judge America.  Does America engage in massive and widespread violations of human rights?  The Obama administration thinks so.  That's the takeaway of the "Report of the United States of America Submitted to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights."  The introduction says it "gives a partial snapshot of the current human rights situation in the United States, including some of the areas where problems persist in our society."  What human rights problems?

Obama's Empathy Deficit.  Barack Obama couldn't care less about what we think or what we desire.  We have countless examples by now to make this a maxim.  We want jobs; he gives us job-killing social engineering that would make the pharaohs faint.  We want to keep more of our hard-earned and rapidly decreasing earnings and savings; he wants to tax that away from us.  We want cheap energy; he wants to kill the coal industry, raise electricity prices, and all but choke our ability to tap vast oil supplies off our shores.  We want good and affordable medical care; his plans will take that away from us.  We want security from Islamic terrorism; he does not even recognize the threat and dares not speak the words.

Obama Addresses the U.N. and Blames...Wall Street?!  President Barack Obama told the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday [9/23/2010] that America's financial crisis was the reason their economies were suffering and promised to not rest until people around the globe prosper.

Why Barack Obama Hates America.  If Obama is vehemently opposed to a world defined in America's image, to Pax Americana, then we would expect him to be cagey and defensive about displays of patriotism that convey America's leadership in the world.  Sure enough, a Time photograph from the presidential campaign shows Obama at a fundraising event with several other Democratic politicians.  The magazine noted that the national anthem was playing, but the photo shows that Obama does not have his right hand over his heart.  And he's the only one:  everyone else does!  Network video footage of the event confirmed that Obama was the lone holdout in this traditional display of patriotic allegiance.

Team Obama intentionally self-destructing the republic.   — But there is likely another factor at work, as many have come to suspect:  namely, a deep resentment of the usages, principles, and geopolitical behavior of the nation he ostensibly governs and for which he relentlessly apologizes.  It appears he has done everything in his power to bring it to the very brink of ruin, alienating its allies, courting its enemies, surrounding himself with incompetents, toadies, petty despots, and neo-Marxists, introducing fiscal programs that have only exacerbated the most devastating economic crisis since the Great Depression, rendering the borders of the nation permeable to a veritable invasion of "illegals" and criminal elements, cutting back on its military hardware, and "reaching out" to an Islamic world whose inroads into the American body social he has thereby materially facilitated.

'One Nation' under Obama Has No Respect for America.  President Obama himself is the quintessential disrespecter of all things American.  Democrats, once proud defenders of the First Amendment's free-speech guarantee, have now become, under Obama, its fiercest critics.  Barack Obama has used the presidency to single out, mock, and threaten with cut-offs to access, any and all media outlets who dare to hold his policies to even a modicum of honest scrutiny.  Starting off his administration by telling Republicans they "couldn't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and expect to get things done," Obama has stridently picked fights with conservative talk radio and Fox News as though the First Amendment did not apply to them.

What drives Barack Obama's rage against America?  Our President is hell bent on slashing our nuclear stockpiles, while lunatic regimes in Iran and North Korea want a robust program of their own.  Obama derides entrepreneurship, business, and our free-market system, as he pushes an unprecedented Washington power grab in the auto, financial, healthcare, and energy sectors.  He even supports oil drilling off the coast of Brazil, but not in the country he was elected to lead.  And that list doesn't even scratch the surface of Obama's governing sins.

American Exceptionalism: Obama vs. Jefferson.  In April 2009, President Barack Obama said, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."  This reflects a basic misunderstanding of what American exceptionalism means.  It doesn't mean that Americans are exceptional people (although in many respects we are).  It means that the values our Founding Fathers expressed in our founding documents are exceptional!

The Adversary President:  Obama vs. America.  As we approach the November elections after two years of the Obama presidency, oddly enough, a burning question is still, "Who Is Barack Obama?"  That question was the title of a Richard Cohen column, but practically since Obama's first day in office, the public has been asking, Is he a socialist?  A Marxist?  Anti-American?  Anti-colonialist? ... The category Obama fits best is what scholars call the "adversary culture."

Obama Remembers Mumbai: What About Fort Hood, Sir?  President Obama began his 10-day, pre-holiday Asia vacation in Mumbai, India by memorializing the victims of the terrorist attacks from two years ago.  In a somber and respectful tone, he declared, "We'll never forget." ... All well and good.  Unfortunately, the president's staff must have forgotten an equally memorable terrorist attack, one that took place at Fort Hood, Texas on November 5, 2009.

Is The President Learning Economics By Trial-And-Error?  During his campaign for the presidency and now nearly two years in the White House, Barack Obama's disdain for America's free market economy has been abundantly clear.  As a candidate, Senator Obama traversed the country preaching his economic doctrines, and the recurrent themes from these messages were quite specific...

The U.S. as U.N. Punching Bag.  Last Friday [11/5/2010], for the first time, the Obama administration put the U.S.'s human-rights record up for questioning and critique under the U.N. Human Rights Council's "universal periodic review." ... The U.S. UPR is to occur every four years.  The idea behind it, as the State Department explains, is "that governments' records should be scrutinized, discussed, and debated by other governments, civil society, human rights defenders, a free press, and their own citizenry."  But wait, that happens every day in America.

Obama's Disastrous Visit to India.  As his political party was delivered a severe blow and his agenda was cut off at the knees on election day he was seen dancing happily all across the [Indian] continent with a lavish visit paid for at the taxpayer's expense even as those same taxpayers were enraged at wild government spending sprees.  As the Indians worried over Obama's foreign policy he refused to call the those that attacked them in Mumbai terrorists and finally on his exit from the country he delivered yet another one of his digs at his own country saying that America is a nation in decline.

Obama and America's decline.  Mr. Obama is a representative of a liberal intellectual stratum that has never been comfortable with American global pre-eminence.  He seeks a future in which the world sets the rules by which the United States must abide.  His view of American limits was summed up when he said during the 2008 presidential campaign, "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK."  Why does Mr. Obama think other countries should have a say in these matters at all?

Obama's Slave Ship.  Using racially charged language, Obama relegates Republicans to the back of the bus.  In a speech to Latinos, he directs the audience to align with him against the "enemy."  But Obama doesn't mean the Mexican Cartel, who are holding sections of Mexico and the United States hostage.  He's referring to conservatives.  Recent photos of Obama have been alarming; they depict a man boiling over with rage.  Have we ever witnessed a U.S. president so pugnacious, so incensed and inflamed by his own people?  But to Obama, we are not his people; this is everything you need to know about Barack Obama in a nutshell.  Although Obama was marketed as the post-racial, biracial uniter, this is not the man behind the mask.

Obama's Authoritarian Multiculturalism.  Barack Obama is an apostle of multiculturalism.  Like many American blacks, Obama believes that America's original moral flaws of slavery and discrimination have been seared permanently into the American character, and that America therefore lacks the moral authority to wield disproportionate power.  Obama also believes he is the perfect instrument for navigating America to its proper, more modest place among nations, and has made strenuous efforts to do so.

What's Up With 'Sputnik?'  The list of American innovations that have changed life on Earth is practically endless, but President Obama is trying to inspire America's next technological wave by referring back to a 50-year-old achievement by a defunct nation — Sputnik.

Obama's Justice Department visual acceleration to global governance.  Some might recall the Internet controversy that took place last July when the U.S. Department of Justice removed the American flag header from its website, replacing "Old Glory" with a solid black background.  In conjunction with the stripping of the stars and stripes, controversy increased with the inclusion of a quote placed on nearly every page of the DOJ web site that reads "The common law is the will of Mankind issuing from the Life of the People."  Based on the number of e-mails I've received over the last few days, it is apparent that many seem to be just now learning of the USDOJ web site makeover.

Trading Away Secrets.  The aircraft industry remains one of America's strongest manufacturing sectors, providing needed jobs and industrial sales.  Already buffeted by the heavily subsidized European Airbus, it may also face stiffer competition one day from a Chinese behemoth buying what American technology it cannot steal.  General Electric plans this week to sign a joint-venture agreement under which it will share its most sophisticated airplane electronics, including technology from Boeing's 787 Dreamliner, with state-owned Aviation Industry Corp. of China, or Avic.

Who Needs a Sputnik Moment?  Never in my worst nightmares did I expect to hear the president of the United States give voice to a dream of building "our generation's Sputnik moment."  For the privilege of becoming an American citizen some 32 years ago, I paid with two death sentences, both levied on me by one of those Soviet bloc countries that spawned the Sputnik era and later collapsed under its own weight.  From my vantage point, ObamaCare now looms over us with disturbing reminders of the Soviet bloc's Sputnik-era health care system.

State of the Obama 'Remaking America' Revolution.  Calling to mind Obama's campaign pledge to fundamentally "transform" the United States of America, good citizens ought never forget that this remaking of America was and still is the goal of the Obama presidency.  By hook and by crook, whether through gargantuan bills passed against the will of the people with aid and abetment from bribes, kickbacks, and corporatist maneuvers, or through the bypassing of Congress with agency regulations, this president has both his mind and his heart set on making America into the "world as it should be" according to Barack Obama.  So how's that fundamental transformation going this year?

Obama's Muslim Brotherhood Ties.  Barack Obama has declared that all opposition groups should have representation in the next Egyptian government, which essentially ensures that the Muslim Brotherhood will be part of that government.  The Brotherhood is the largest opposition group in Egypt, so it will probably end up in the driver's seat in any new regime, and steer Egypt toward becoming an Islamic state inveterately hostile to the United States.  So why isn't Obama working to limit the Brotherhood's scope and influence?  Maybe because he doesn't really have a problem with the Brotherhood, despite its hostility to America.

Obama cuts off VOA funding for China; gives it to NPR.  President Obama's propaganda priorities are becoming clearer.  Does the community activist-in-chief care about a billion Chinese and what they know about their dictatorial government?  Community organizers are supposed to speak truth to power.  How can the Chinese people speak truth to power when they are cut off from learning the truth?

VOA radio broadcasts to China signing off, while Beijing boosts propaganda.  The Obama administration will cancel shortwave radio broadcasts by Voice of America into China this year, as Beijing is expanding its propaganda operations in the United States and around the world.  Critics of the broadcasting cuts, announced Monday [2/14/2011], said major reductions in staff and shortwave broadcasts will sharply curtail an important outlet for unfiltered news and information for large numbers of people in China, especially areas such as Tibet and western Xinjiang province, where pro-democracy forces are opposing Chinese rule.

Liberals Giving Up On American Exceptionalism.  [President] Obama doesn't seem to believe that Americans are more innovative, more creative, more daring and more able to make a difference.  It's as if he and other Democrat leaders have given up on America's greatness and want to manage expectations by lowering the bar of achievement. ... We have the talent.  What the nation lacks is a leader capable of summoning the nation's abilities.

A Man-Made Energy Crisis.  At a time of trillion-dollar deficits, the administration is borrowing billions to promote high-speed rail, and is heavily invested in the federally subsidized $42,000 Government Motors Chevy Volt.  Apparently the common denominator here is a deductive view that high energy prices will force Americans to emulate European centrally planned and state-run transportation.  That conclusion is not wild conspiracy theory, but simply the logical manifestation of many of the Obama administration's earlier campaign promises.

Clash for America's soul.  Despite no promised certification that lifting the military's ban on homosexuality will harm readiness, recruiting or retention, President Obama's Pentagon already has produced materials hatched in a theater of the absurd.  As Washington Times correspondent Rowan Scarborough reports, Marine commanders will have to ponder, for example, what to do if two male Marines are seen kissing in a shopping mall.  Now there's a scenario for building respect for the military among the nation's youngsters.

Obama's Libya: Completing His Remaking of America.  Whether or not you believe anti-colonialism is the driver, Obama's animating foreign policy passion is that America has been an international bully that needs to be brought down to size.  He couldn't wait to confess America's "arrogance" and "dismissiveness" to foreign nations on their soil.  He gleefully told the Muslim world in his Cairo speech how wonderful and peaceful Islam is and how much it has contributed to America.  He made clear that he doesn't believe in American exceptionalism when he said it is no different from Greek or British exceptionalism.

The Commander-in-Chief Bows Once Again.  Since Barry Soetoro was inaugurated, I've documented his penchant for the disregarding laws he doesn't like; along with his disturbing habit of using the Dept. of Justice to selectively enforce or decline to enforce duly enacted laws that conflict with his political ideology.  Examples of such are legion, and not worth enumerating here once again.  Suffice it to say that the evidence that our current Commander-in-Chief cares little for the US Constitution and even less for American citizens is overwhelming. ... Where are the leftist protesters that should be screaming and carrying signs outside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?  Where are the Congressional demands for an immediate impeachment proceeding?

Obama's Libya: Completing His Remaking of America.  Whether or not you believe anti-colonialism is the driver, Obama's animating foreign policy passion is that America has been an international bully that needs to be brought down to size.  He couldn't wait to confess America's "arrogance" and "dismissiveness" to foreign nations on their soil.  He gleefully told the Muslim world in his Cairo speech how wonderful and peaceful Islam is and how much it has contributed to America.  He made clear that he doesn't believe in American exceptionalism when he said it is no different from Greek or British exceptionalism.

About the Birth Certificate:  Two days ago, Matt Drudge linked to a new book by Jerome Corsi, unflinchingly titled Where's the Birth Certificate?  The book immediately leapt to number one on Amazon.com, where it has remained ever since.  The media has shown its usual incredulity at the indisputable stupidity of the American people.  How could so many people question President Obama's birthplace?  How could they wonder about his origins?  Are they all simply racist?  The answer, of course, is that Americans are desperately seeking an answer to a simple question:  Why does President Obama appear to be so un-American?

Obama mixes up Medal of Honor winners.  The Medal of Honor is the highest United States award for valour.  It's the equivalent of the Victoria Cross.  In the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, just eight have been awarded.  Three of them have been awarded by Obama.  The names of recipients are seared on the hearts of many, many Americans.  To mix up SSG Giunta and SFC Monti was just awful and it suggests a relaxed attitude towards American heroes that has been evident on previous occasions.

Michelle Obama: "All This Just For a Flag".  The internet was buzzing Tuesday night with video of First Lady Michelle Obama apparently showing extreme disrespect to the American flag at a ceremony in honor of the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.  As police and firefighters fold the flag to the sound of marching bagpipers, a skeptical looking Mrs. Obama leans to her husband and appears to say, "all this just for a flag."  She then purses her lips and shakes her head slightly as Mr. Obama nods.

What is Michelle Obama saying during the 9/11 flag ceremony?  There is a growing internet buzz over the First Lady's comment to her husband during the 9/11 commemoration Sunday, as the flag ceremony is taking place.  Watch the video clip below, and lip readers are invited to comment on what she is saying.  To my unskilled eyes, it looks as though she is saying, "All that for a flag!"

Obama bows to Emperor Akihito

Have we gone mad?!  I cannot describe the anger when I saw this.  Our [president], bowing to Emperor Akihito [son of Hirohito] of Japan, a nation that caused our entry into WWII.  For what purpose?  First the Saudi King, now this? ... This is a grave affront to anyone who has ever served, and every GI, and Marine, Sailor and Airman who died fighting the Japanese in the Pacific in WWII.

How low will he go?  Obama gives Japan's Emperor Akihito a wow bow.  How low will the new American president go for the world's royalty?  This photo will get Democrat President Obama a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese who still pay attention to the royal family living in its downtown castle.  Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference to a superior.

Why is this man bowing?  We criticized Barack Obama when he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia.  Americans do not bow to royalty.  When the royal is the ruling tyrant of a despotic regime, the wrong is compounded.  Obama's bowing to the King was deeply offensive. ... Obama has now done it again.

Obama's botched bow.  Bad enough that Obama bowed down to another head of state yesterday.  Even worse that he did not bother to learn how one bows in Japan, and just winged it. ... The only redeeming feature is that at least he did not bow his head and bend his knee, as he did wioth the Saudi monarch.

The President Who Grovels.  Could someone in the Chief of Protocol's Office at the State Department please tell Barack Obama that heads of state do not bow to other heads of state?  And for the head of state of the country founded on the idea that "all men are created equal," that goes double.

President Obama vs. The Rest of the World Greeting The Emperor of Japan.  A photo comparison that clearly shows Obama is either a dunce or he hates America.  Or both.

The Bow as "Protocol".  Politico reports that "A senior administration official said President Barack Obama was simply observing protocol when he bowed to Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko upon arriving at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo on Saturday."  Why won't that "senior administration official" come out from behind the curtain and make that assertion in his own name?  Because it's nonsense.

Why Does Obama Keep Bowing?  President Obama's silent bow is yet another way of apologizing for America's misperceived arrogance and superiority.  He has found yet another way to pander and apologize without ever uttering a single word.

The Stars And Stripes Is De Facto Bowed Before An Earthly King — Why?  This week, President Obama bowed deeply and purposefully before Japanese Emperor Akihito when greeting him on official duties.  Why do this, when it flies in the face of a proud American tradition?  That tradition:  America does not bow before earthly kings.  While other countries often dip their flags as a sign of respect, Americans do not.  As an American of Irish heritage, I proudly credit Irish-Americans with making this tradition prominent.

How Low Can He Go?  President Obama's bows, coupled with his global apology tours, suggest something other than politeness.  President Obama has repeatedly reminded us that he thinks we have been arrogant and high-handed in our dealings with other nations.  By bowing and scraping, he intends to drop us down a peg or two.  The president of the United States really did intend to show obeisance to the King of Saudi Arabia and to defer to the emperor of Japan.  He appears to have done so not to flatter those nations but only to diminish his own.

Obama bows, the nation cringes.  So far it's a memorable trip.  He established a new precedent for how American presidents should pay obeisance to kings, emperors, monarchs, sovereigns and assorted other authentic man-made masters of the universe.  He stopped just this side of the full grovel to the emperor of Japan, risking a painful genuflection if his forehead had hit the floor with a nasty bump, which it almost did.  No president before him so abused custom, traditions, protocol (and the country he represents).

Liberalism Is Dead.  [Scroll down]  Obama showed the world how far he is from JFK's liberalism when he ostentatiously bowed down to two monarchs — the Saudi King, whose tribal kingdom confines women to the home, protects African slavery, and executes homosexuals; and the Emperor of Japan, in whose father's name Japanese soldiers massacred racially "inferior" Asians throughout the "Greater Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere."  Naturally, the Chinese, who still hate the Japanese for what they did, simply went ballistic when Obama bowed to the Japanese Emperor.

More about Obama bowing down to King Abdullah.

Obama bows to Chinese President Hu

He's still at it.

Maybe if He Stopped Bowing.  Here we go again.  President Obama bowed to the Chinese President and the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party, Hu Jintao, when they met in Washington yesterday [4/12/2010].  This latest bow comes after a string of previously humiliating and ridiculous Bama bows:  to the Saudi king, the Japanese emperor, and (my favorite) the Mayor of Tampa, Florida.

Why is this man bowing?  We criticized Barack Obama when he bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. ... A reporter asked Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs about the bow.  Under his own name and on the record, Gibbs denied what any fool could see.  Indeed, one astute observer commented on CNN that "Ray Charles could see that he bowed."  Obama did it again when he met up with the Emperor of Japan. ... Yesterday [4/12/2010] Obama did it yet again, this time bowing to the Communist Chinese President Hu Jintao during the official arrivals for the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.

Obama Bows while Hu Stiffs Him.  President Obama bowed to Chinese President Hu while they shook hands at the beginning of the April 12-13 Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.  President Hu did not bow back.  The rest of the summit played out the same relationship.

Obama attempts to redefine September 11

September 11 is the anniversary of the day the Religion of Peace struck New York City.  Because of Barack Obama's allegiance to Islam, he apparently deems it necessary to erase the events of 9/11/2001 from the public memory.  The first step is to turn September 11 into an annual holiday that has nothing to do with hijacked airplanes crashing into office buildings.

Obama's Plan to Desecrate 9/11:  The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry.  This effort to reshape the American psyche has nothing to do with healing the nation and everything to do with easing the nation along in the ongoing radical transformation of America that President Obama promised during last year's election campaign.

We Do Not Exist To Serve The State.  The whole idea of a National Day of Service on Sept. 11, whether voluntary or not and regardless of who is promoting the idea, ought to make advocates of limited government jittery.  I mean, aren't taxes, by which the productive subsidize the nonproductive, enough?  How much more service to the government is needed?  Where does it end?

9/11 Official observances must not obscure day's true meaning.  [Scroll down]  And the Rev. Lennox Yearwood, head of the Hip Hop Caucus said:  "The first milestone for Green the Block will be on our National Day of Service, Sept. 11, 2009, where we will organize Green the Block service events around the country in coordination with the President's initiative, United We Serve."  No.  Wrong.  Entirely wrong.  9/11 is not about green jobs or health care or bank bailouts or about the ideologies and egos of celebrities who are planning concerts and other performances this year.  To them, hands off.

Obama's Desecrators of 9/11.  President Obama is counting on two Marxists who blame America for the 9/11 terrorist attacks to help turn Sept. 11 from a day of solemn remembrance into an unseemly celebration of radical environmentalism and Big Government.  The two men charged with this politically correct exercise in desecration and icon-smashing are the boorish, self-absorbed Rev. Lennox Yearwood and the comparatively suave, articulate Van Jones.  Jones is adept at concealing his radicalism; Yearwood is incapable of doing so.

The green-washing of Sept. 11.  Before he abruptly exited the White House last weekend, former green jobs czar Van Jones used his government position to help the Obama administration cynically green-wash the meaning of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. ... This attempt to re-brand the horrors of Sept. 11 is part of the effort to ease America along in the radical transformation of the nation that the president promised on the campaign trail.

What country does this president live in?  I have lived long enough, listened to enough presidents and spent enough time in formal education along with extensive reading of various topics to be wary of misinformation and lies.  This week our president has again attacked our country before an international audience at the United Nations.  If you listened, you would think this particular president was the first in untold years to be concerned about people.  He sounded more like a world king rather than the president of the United States.

Once again in 2011: Obama declares September 11 National Grandparents Day.  Despite the seemingly singular focus on tragedy this September 11, the White House found another purpose for the day: recognizing the importance of grandparents.  Quietly on Friday [9/9/2011], President Barack Obama declared September 11, 2011 National Grandparents Day.

The Editor says... Even though this "holiday" has been celebrated since 1978, this is still an attempt to draw attention away from the anniversary of the day America was attacked by the Religion of Peace.
