SOTU Coverage Only Obscures Obama’s Treason

“America, for all that we’ve endured; for all the grit and hard work required to come back; for all the tasks that lie ahead, know this: The shadow of crisis has passed, and the State of the Union is strong.”

– Barack Obama, State of the Union address, Jan 20, 2015

I will spare my readers yet another frustrating analysis of President Obama’s State of the Union address this week, in that enumerating his dubious intentions and the brazen lies he tells are things I express here quite regularly. Other than his defiant tone serving to give the lie to his conciliatory rhetoric prior to the November midterm election rout, I believe that the primary value of this address was its potential for having demonstrated to a few million more Americans that this is the most diabolical individual to ever occupy the White House.

If nothing else, Obama made it plain that he will continue to do precisely what he wishes; he will continue to torch billions if not trillions of dollars on big-government socialist frivolities, ramrod new taxation through if he can, circumvent Congress when he deems necessary and ignore the Constitution.

The basis of Saul Alinsky’s strategy for political conquest, detailed in his book “Rules for Radicals,” is the widespread use of lies. Given that this tome is the sacred text of Obama and his Cabinet (or co-conspirators, if you prefer), one might interpret the State of the Union address in light of this.

More germane to the topic I will address here were Obama’s references to the terrorist threats currently faced by America and the West. It should be no surprise that Obama did not employ the words “Islam,” “Islamic,” nor “Muslim” throughout his address, save for one instance in which he contended that the vast majority of Muslims “share our commitment to peace.”

Earlier Tuesday, news agencies carried accounts of Iran-backed Shiite rebels having shelled the residence of Yemen’s leader and swept into the presidential palace. On paper (that being officially), Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi is purported to be a U.S. ally in the fight against al-Qaida groups in Yemen. Here, one could argue that he might take counsel from members of our former “ally” government in Iraq, but I digress.

When the government fears the people

29 Jan. 08,       2014 05.54“When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.”

– Thomas Jefferson

Given the stunning advances Western society made over the last hundred years both socially and technologically, most Americans grew up with the belief that things would always “turn out for the best” in the long run, and this was a chief underpinning of our worldview. Despite having fought such foes as Adolf Hitler and weathered the prolonged tensions and fears of the Cold War, even these had come to inspiring conclusions. I think that until very recently, few Americans ever considered a fundamental paradigm shift for the worse.

Our positive worldview has been a two-edged sword of sorts. On the one hand, it tempered our resolve and conviction; when you believe you’re going to win, it can go a long way toward manifesting that victory. On the other hand, given such an outlook, one – or a nation – might get lulled into a false sense of security. I believe that this is, in part, precisely what occurred with regard to the American people and the enemies from within against whom we are now engaged.

We believed that given the promise the future and our aggregate potential held, and our ability to contribute to the betterment of those around the globe, who would even want to stand against us?

Those who have a desire to foment or prolong human suffering – that’s who.
