Commentary by: Roger Landry (TLB)
REALLY … What the &%#@ has happened to America? There are so many frustrated Americans today and this can be seen clearly in our combined displeasure or outright anger at what we so sadly term our leadership. Congress has one of the most dismal approval ratings in recent history and our president is not too far behind. From the debacle or disaster of Obamacare to the litany of scandals the White House battles daily, we are now a nation sinking into a quagmire of disarray and discontent with no foreseeable end in sight.
Our illustrious leader (Satire) has committed countless acts that would have wrung screams of impeachment from congress, both of the political parties and every liberal, grass roots organization in existence less than a decade ago. But he seems to be made of Teflon with nothing, no matter how heinous, sticking to him. Those who populate congress today are either cowards, under duress, or have given a whole new meaning and depth to the concept of complicity.
We as a nation are responsible for (directly or indirectly) the deaths of about three million innocents we insanely re-term collateral damage because it sounds less guilty than slaughtered or killed, and these aggressive actions have been greatly expanded and exacerbated by our Nobel peace prize winning president across an entire region of the globe. This madness continues daily and the total climbs at an alarming rate! We now have highly trained permanent or special forces in over 160 out of 192 countries on this planet.
Our economy and currency are a travesty soon to render this once great nation to third world economic status. Yet nothing is being accomplished to stem this disaster except more egregious spending, that does nothing to soften the economic sufferings of We The People, but instead adds TRILLIONS more to our national debt, effectively pouring gasoline on a raging fire. Now Obamacare (contrary to Obama’s lie) will add a minimum of six $TRILLION more (and that is a very conservative estimate) to the national debt, threatening to destroy what little remains of what used to be the most powerful and prosperous middle class this world has ever seen. So again we have only managed to kick the can of economic disaster a little further down the proverbial road, but with a catastrophic collapse still looming in our not too distant future.
Our once valued and admired freedoms and rights, the reason for untold generations of immigration to America, are now a global joke via such tyranny as the Patriot Act and the NDAA rider, and our world standing is that of a tyrant or world bully! We kid ourselves by using the soft term “the world’s police” but ask yourself, how do you see the modern police? Please understand this is how the world sees America.
Our Second Amendment rights, so obviously valued in this country are being chipped away at with a concerted effort through unconstitutional laws and tyranny. Knowing full well that a majority of Americans and Congress would not support a UN Gun Control treaty … our illustrious leader sent Kerry to sign the treaty anyway, and you had better believe that WILL have a negative impact on your right to own guns.
We now have Free Speech Zones, REALLY? Where do you see that in the Constitution? When a government designates when and where you can speak your mind, freedom of speech is DEAD! So in essence your rights, thoughts and wishes be damned.
We are spied on today by so many different government agencies and sub agencies that NOTHING you say or do is private anymore, unless you take mind bending and drastic steps to ensure any level of isolation against these intrusions, but then again these very actions will likely throw the light of suspicion on you making your efforts futile … Correct me if I am wrong, but this sure as hell sounds a lot like the old Soviet Union KGB style tyranny we railed so vehemently against a few short decades ago!
And then there was the Bundy ranch fiasco, another case of a monolithic government overreaching its Constitutional powers to support the corporatist elite. For all who still believe that this president and his puppet masters, so intent on selling America out, that it is not even very well hidden anymore, would back down from boots on the ground freedom loving people … NOT! … So why did they? This begs the explanation that the Bundy fiasco was another smoke screen, a distraction from the real tyranny being perpetrated by the boys in the back room.
You must all understand that to maintain their hold on power, those who would rule (not govern or represent) us can’t just stand by and let We The People set the proverbial precedent by ‘self enforcing’ our rights and liberties through protest or mass action … and get away with it; after all we are only the TRUE governors of this Republic. Those actions, if left unchecked, would serve to embolden MANY more Americans to jump on the bandwagon every time tyranny rears it’s ugly head and erode or remove the fear and compliance this government has worked so hard and for so long to instill in us. Now they can’t have that … can they!
A pretty safe prediction is to watch for another major distraction soon (maybe even a staged or false flag event, or disaster) to shift much of the attention currently focused on the immigration and southern boarder debacle, and a dictator style amnesty for over five million criminals that they are taking so much heat for presently … Misdirection, redirection … nothing to see here …
Before you jump at me with comment, “He did not start all this tyranny we suffer today” … I AGREE, but he sure as hell has played the game better and harder than any of his predecessors, bringing the game to a whole new level of reality.
How about the serious increase in the number and scope of nations we are perpetrating hostilities against (that we know of)? I wonder if Mr. Obama has his Nobel Peace Prize in a prominent place for easy viewing in the White House … Could there be anything more undeserved or defamed on this planet? Are the members of the Nobel committee kicking themselves in the butt daily for the shame and ridicule they have brought on themselves and their foundation? Do they cringe every time a report of a new drone strike in any of a dozen countries is released recounting the number of innocent women and children that have been killed?
How about no deficit reducing budget (he campaigned on … twice) to congress in his six plus years, but adding more to the debt than any other president in history in a HUGE fashion?
How about the massive freedom-robbing and power grabbing executive orders and congressional bills he has signed?
How about huge political/diplomatic failures such as Benghazi and Fast and Furious and the IRS scandal?
How about economy-wrecking bills like Obamacare, a bill that is doing more to tear down the middle class in America than any other mechanism in play today? Can you honestly believe the big buck, highly educated economists and writers of this bill did not foresee these implications to working Americans when they where crafting it … REALLY ???
How about the release of some of the most dangerous terrorists in US captivity for an American who hates America, only to have them return to the fight against America with all that pent up hatred and drive for revenge?
And how about his most obvious and egregious debacle, failing his constitutional mandate to protect the American people by sealing our southern boarder. Congress was never needed to seal the border … to make immigration policy or law yes … BUT NOT to seal the border! So why hasn’t he?
This is by far not the entire list, these are only the issues and disasters that stand out or got the most attention. I would make a serious wager that what we are not aware of (yet) far outstrips what we are aware of! But even in what we know, there are far too many more issues and disasters to mention here. And all this was on HIS watch, by his hand, and all (in the grande scheme of things) … Intentional !!!
But the most miraculous part of this: it is all being accomplished while managing to keep a large (but shrinking) portion of the population convinced of his true benevolence through the constant shielding and propagandizing of a complicit Mainstream Media who’s job it is to convince the sheeple all is as it has to be!
So when do We The People decide we have had enough, because once they have all our guns and all his jack boots (FEMA, TSA & DHS etc…) are fully armed and in place, do you think they will just go quietly if we ask please? At this point our options appear to be, unite our voices now into a force that cannot be ignored or dismissed, and effect the change we need to rebuild this Republic in the image it was originally intended, OR …
