The debate on whether President Obama is truly a communist or merely acts like one will probably make the rounds up until his wife begins to run for the presidency – four long and potentially devastating years from now. (Michelle Obama cannot be discounted. After all, she is a lawyer – the most popular occupation of Democratic presidential candidates and its movers-and-shakers over the last thirty years. It was her insider’s knowledge and connections which helped launch an otherwise nondescript Barack Obama into the political forefront in Chicago.) Whether one believes Xavier Lerma: “He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion,” 1 or Sam Webb, national chairperson of the CPUSA: “We meet on the heels of an enormous people’s victory. It was a long and bitterly contested battle in which the forces of inclusive democracy came out on top. The better angels of the American people spread their wings,”2 the issue can be settled simply by observing the President’s actions.
THE “SAVIOR” AND OBAMA-AYERS CONNECTION
A totalitarian state comes to power either by force or when a citizenry willingly submits itself to what it believes to be its only hope, its “lord and savior” as we have already heard Jamie Foxx say of Obama. (Force was the modus operandi of William Ayers and his cronies when they published “Prairie Fire – The Politics of Anti-Revolutionary Imperialism” in 1974, but they have adjusted their tactics probably due to the complexity of the U.S. which relegates force to an “end game” if necessary. Incidentally, the book was dedicated to numerous individuals, including Sirhan Sirhan, Robert Kennedy’s assassin.)
Despite Obama’s attempts to minimize his connection to Ayers, there are numerous examples of Obama-Ayers interactions in the public. They include:
1) Collaboration on a school reform program, the “Chicago Annenberg Challenge”
2) Serving together on the board of the Woods Fund, a charity organization
3) Being on a panel about juvenile justice (organized by Michelle Obama) and others3
THE ASCENT TO OVERTAKING A NATION
Therefore, how does an aspiring despot arrive to his lofty position? There must be a seemingly endless flow of crises. Or as taken from “Prairie Fire:”
“Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks, to make it hard to carry out its bloody functioning against the people of the world, to join the world struggle, to attack from the inside.”
“Our intention is to engage the enemy, to wear away at him, to harass him, to isolate him, to expose every weakness, to pounce, to reveal his vulnerability.” 3
When a godless society feels overwhelmed, the people begin grasping for any promise of help, regardless of its insanity. Or as Lerma added about the success of Obama in a crisis,“His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance.”1
DEMISE BEGINS WITH THE ECONOMY, PLUS CLEVER PR
This is not to accuse Obama of creating all of the serious problems facing us. Far from it. He deftly diffused outspoken New Jersey Republican Governor Christie with his now infamous arm-around-the-shoulder after the destruction of Superstorm Sandy.
In addition, Obama has shown a remarkable ability to aggravate any crisis in the bud. Take the federal debt. It was already doing poorly when he took office in 2009. Federal budgets were going out of control so, instead of carefully maneuvering the economy, as a Formula I driver would around dangers, he simply floored it to a new total of $16 trillion. His “fiscal cliff” pseudo-negotiations have demanded a year of “no debt ceiling” then, maybe, he would discuss spending cuts. At this point, the “promise” of discussing his small cuts at such a late date should conjure up an image of Wile E. Coyote desperately jerking the steering wheel as he plunges earthward. If only our problems could be fixed in the next frame like a cartoon.
IGNORANCE IS BLISS UNTIL …
But yet, how could we possibly accept this budgetary situation so unwittingly? Even Putin and the former Soviet Union figured it out. As he was quoted, “During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself.”1
Lerma’s article went on to say, “President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don’t they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda.”1
PUT RELIGION IN ITS PLACE
”The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its’ flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free. Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.” 1
UNDERMINE THE BASIC UNIT OF SOCIETY (THE FAMILY)
Contaminating a society with disordered behavior under the guise of “inclusiveness” or “equality” is also an effective disruptive tool. Anyone aware of history knows that no society has ever flourished when the basic family unit was replaced with a variety of behaviors contrary to natural law. Check out Sodom, Gomorrah and the Roman Empire.
As Pope Benedict XVI said in his annual “state of the Church” address at the Vatican, as reported by USA Today, that opposition to gay marriage is a way of defending humanity. The article also said, “The address echoed his recently released annual peace message, which said gay marriage, abortion and euthanasia are threats to world peace.”4
Of course, the Pope and the Church do not refer to “gay marriage” as such because that euphemism would be legitimizing something which is intrinsically disordered. The Pope’s actual translated statement was as follows: “Man and woman in their created state as complementary versions of what it means to be human are disputed. But if there is no pre-ordained duality of man and woman in creation, then neither is the family any longer a reality established by creation. Likewise, the child has lost the place he had occupied hitherto and the dignity pertaining to him. Bernheim shows that now, perforce, from being a subject of rights, the child has become an object to which people have a right and which they have a right to obtain. When the freedom to be creative becomes the freedom to create oneself, then necessarily the Maker himself is denied and ultimately man too is stripped of his dignity as a creature of God, as the image of God at the core of his being. The defence of the family is about man himself. And it becomes clear that when God is denied, human dignity also disappears. Whoever defends God is defending man.”5
FINALLY, WEAKEN THE MILITARY TO INEFFECTIVENESS
Now that we have a disintegrating financial situation and a society which is abandoning the family unit, what’s left to knock out and finalize collapse? The military is a good place to start. If the country falls over the “fiscal cliff,” major cuts will be made to the defense budget. While not all of the crippling effects will be immediate, the erosion will be noticeable nonetheless. Even worse, will be the impact on civilian companies who produce much of the military’s advanced weaponry. As contracts decrease, many firms will not be able to remain solvent.6 Lose sophisticated manufacturers, and one cannot simply flip a switch to revive them when the mistake is realized.
Chairman Obama wins one way or another: either he gets absurd liberties with the debt ceiling with no commitment to curb the spending which is devouring our nation or the military takes a hit.
POLLS GIVE OBAMA CONFIDENCE
The President is also a master of public opinion. Despite his obvious lifetime connection to ideologies opposing the vitality of a United States republic, he continues to win the popularity measurements. As Fox News reported yesterday, the most recent Gallup poll shows that Obama has a likeability rating in the 50s with regard to the “cliff” while Republicans in the House have been saddled with a rating in the 20.7 Its conclusion is that a majority of Americans will not blame the President for any damage caused by going over the “cliff.”
As a nation, we missed the opportunity to do something constructive seven weeks ago. Two options are left:
1) Pray that all members of Congress accept the wisdom which God may grant them. I will not be intimidated by the smirks of those who will label me as hopelessly outdated. Washington and his troops had no earthly reason to expect victory, especially during the winter of Valley Forge. After the incredible surge to victory for independence, he emphasized where our thanks were due. As USA Today stated last month, “While a few modern critics might be rankled by, as Washington’s proclamation puts it, an official ‘day of public thanksgiving and prayer,’ for most Americans the holiday stands as an enduring reminder of Washington’s wise vision for American religious freedom.”8
The current spiritual winter is of our own making. The God of today is the same as in the 18th century and always will be, even beyond time itself. We are the ones who have changed. Let’s give him a little thought because we cannot fix this by ourselves.
2) Pray and work actively to charitably inform those who don’t know or seemingly don’t want to know the entire picture. It would be an utter shame and disgrace for the Greatest Generation to be followed by the Worst Generation.
