The first fifty-six days of the Obama presidency have been—to put it mildly—planned frenzy. Frenzy in an attempt to keep We-the-People from knowing what’s really going on (chaos is a tyrant’s friend) and planned because it was! Just some of what Obama and his supplicant Congress have wrought includes:
• Seized over $1TRILLION in taxpayer funds from the US Treasury (in less than 2 months) for the so-called economic “stimulus package” and heavily- earmarked spending bills
• Committees held and are continuing to hold “kangaroo trials” of bank executives in ongoing “investigative” hearings, in order to divert the blame for the US’ economic disaster from the true culprits—which include but, are not limited to—Democrats Barney Frank, Christopher Dodd, former President Clinton and Barack Obama
• Grilling AIG CEO on bonuses paid to his employees, while knowing full well that it was Senator Christopher Dodd (D-CN) who wrote the legislation to protect these bonuses. Note: Dodd is now frantically trying to dance away from this as fast as he can
• Working diligently—via Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder—to so restrict the Second Amendment that it essentially becomes null and void
• Working diligently to so restrict talk radio (via use of the soon to be Obama FCC and the recently passed restrictive Durbin Amendment) that the First Amendment essentially becomes null and void
• Nationalizing almost every possible industry, so that the government will decide virtually all that We-the-People can and cannot do—just a few of these industries include banking, investments, automobile, oil and gas, energy and now even food growing and distribution
• Executive Branch control of the Commerce Department (which has traditionally been autonomous and controls the US Census Bureau) in order to Gerrymander districts so that Democrats will be in control nationwide—no elections will really be necessary
• Assigning the radical Obama Fraud Unit ACORN to work with the Commerce Department—again, the department that controls the US Census Bureau. Note: This usage of ACORN appears to ensure citizen-intimidation (as it affected during the 2008 elections) and the strong possibility (considering the organization’s biased and deceitful record) of over-counting certain groups• Cutting US Defense Funds and decrease of the US nuclear arsenal
• Intentionally lowering the morale of the US Military by advising our wounded soldiers that they will soon have to pay for their own treatment
• HUGE increase in taxes on ALL energy use—for everyone—to appease the global warming crowd and appointing as Energy Tsar former leader of the Socialist Party International and an agent for world government Carol Browner. Note: Ms. Browner has said that when energy companies can provide their ‘smart systems’ she will be able to regulate how much energy is distributed to each and every private home!
• Trashing our friends while praising and courting our enemies
• Has already issued directives to the Missouri State and local police that they are to be on the watch for anyone displaying anti-North American Union or any 3rd party candidate (most specifically Ron Paul supporters) bumper stickers. They are being told that these are probably terrorists or militia members
• Recently, in San Francisco, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that she supports illegal immigrants and does not support the US legal systems attempts to stop them!
The above examples are only a few of those that Barack Obama has instituted in his first fifty-six days. And all of them have one thing in common. They are all planned and meant to weaken the power of US citizens and increase the power of Obama and his minions. Remember when I warned about Obama as an American Stalin? Are you getting scared yet?
