Nick Taxia, aka Duh Progressive, penned a great piece that should be a companion to the latest movie, 2016 Obama’s America. It’s an eyes-wide-open look at how Obama possibly views America and the world and the roots of that perception from before Obama’s birth.
A brief sample:
Obama proclaimed during his 2008 campaign that he seeks to “fundamentally change” America. In truth, Obama and his ilk are out to do much more. They seek to eliminate callous Social Darwinism and its economic Siamese twin, capitalism, throughout the entire world, replacing them with a global paradise where there is no chance for exploitation, violence, discrimination, or even judgement based upon racial, cultural, religious, sexual, or any other human differences; where there can be no inequality of any sort, and where no one can rise above another in any regard, be it fair or not…a world where everyone gets a trophy. The same trophy.
The President wants to tell us “stories?” Well this is it. This is the story of Barack Obama’s macro world view; a sad, massive case of reflexive overreaction to hundreds of years of perceived white male dominance, economic exploitation (capitalism), enslavement, genocide, and the lifeblood of all those things, a cruel dog-eat-dog mentality (Social Darwinism) perpetuated by Earth’s primary rulers of the latter half-millennium. I would proclaim Obama a Marxist if it was not for the fact that based upon this view of human existence and the American experience, Barack Obama, well, out-Marxs Marx!
I’ve added Nick’s piece to the Prime page because I found it to be a great piece of writing and because I believe it fills in more than a few holes in the president’s hidden past. Please take the time to read the op-ed in its entirety. I think you’ll find it worthwhile.
In perhaps the most important op-ed published in my lifetime, Thomas Sowell perfectly describes Barack Obama and the slow erosion of our rights that we in the blogoshpere have been crowing about for years.
The America that has flourished for more than two centuries is being quietly but steadily dismantled by the Obama administration, during the process of dealing with particular issues.
I don’t think that can be emphasized enough.
He goes on to say:
If laws passed by the elected representatives of the people can be simply over-ruled unilaterally by whoever is in the White House, then we are no longer a free people, choosing what laws we want to live under.
When a president can ignore the plain language of duly passed laws, and substitute his own executive orders, then we no longer have “a government of laws, and not of men” but a president ruling by decree, like the dictator in some banana republic.
I’ll not waste your time or sully his words by trying to add to them here. Professor Sowell’s article deserves to be read in it’s entirety.

You know what would be worse?
Four more years.
New video from Right Change:
Remember the Socia.List? That menagerie of miscreants comprising the 1000 State Legislators who signed the PSN letter urging passage of Obamacare? Don’t think for a minute they’ve been eradicated. In fact, they’ve recruited quite a few more to their ranks. See, these new recruits recently signed on to be surrogates for Captain Apology under the guise of…

“The Texas Truth Team”
Inspires confidence, doesn’t it? I guess maybe it could, if one ignored the party affiliation and the fact they are propaganda ministers for Dear Leader.
Hey. Guys. Seriously. Next time you decided to form a new band, for heaven’s sake call me for some name suggestions.
Here’s a few off the top of my tin-clad head:
Social Justice League
Tools of the Tirade
Death Cab for Baby
The Keystone Keynesians
Foetus Non Esse
Of course, you’re encouraged to add your own suggestions in the comments.
As an example of the dangerously misguided, wacked-out messianic complex the Dem’s have for their chosen one, I offer their own national Truth Team logo, spotted by Glenn Beck’s personal truth team, who astutely point out:
So, just for fun, what say we pay a visit to the Texas leader of these truth-telling vestiges of virtue, shall we?
Texas Democrat Party Chairman, Boyd Richie:
Mr. Richie recently announced his decision not to seek another term as TDP chair in order to run for another office, or something. While making that announcement, Richie had no qualms issuing a few histrionic comments disparaging those with opposing viewpoints and encouraging his fellow lemmings to unite…
Interesting wording, Mr. Richie. except for the fact that it’s hyperbole, innuendo and lies.
With all due respect sir, you’re a shameless demagogue and thus, accurately represent the rest of your party.
I submit that your statement does however, accurately describe the Democrat party and the Obama regime’s record.
Can you say projection? Sure you can.
It is the democrats who had control of both houses for the first two years of the Obama regime and it is with them that any blame lies for not passing a budget for the past three years. Three more “historic” firsts for those of you at home keeping score.
It was also the democrats who threatened to shut down government, withholding of Social Security checks, withholding of pay from active service troops, cutting healthcare services to veterans, cutting healthcare funds, and more. And they do so out of fear mongering.
The tools of tyrants and dictators throughout history is writ large in the democrat playbook and wielded against the people who’s rights they claim to protect, enslaving us all to exorbitant debt while the party panders ever more to their cronys, barely challenged by the sycophantic media.
Like Obama, Pelosi and Reid, these truth team surrogates must go. If for nothing but the fact they’ve turned the definition of truth on it’s head. They’ve jumped aboard yet another demagogue wagon instead of engaging in meaningful discussion about the constitutional restoration that Texas and America so desperately need.
The members of our merry band of misfits is as follows. Those with an asterisk are included on the Socia.list page. The 11 others are awarded spots on that list as well.

TDP Chair Boyd Richie, (Good riddance)

Note: I’ll do my best to update this list with opposing conservative candidates for the upcoming election, just not today, it was too pretty outside and my tin can needed a tan.

UPDATE II: Linked @Theo Spark. Thanks!
Prayers for the Breitbart family.
I recently saw an image of President Obama exchanging a high-five with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from the black and white beyond.
After considering the image and what it represents, I think the photo-shopper got a couple of things wrong, so I fixed it.
That’s more accurate.
Here’s the original.
While I’m sure that Dr. King would be happy to see a man of color inaugurated President, I cannot believe he would condone much, if any, of the actions of this unconstitutional president. Judging by content of character, I think he would be ashamed of the legacy Barack Hussein Obama leaves behind.
Happy President’s Day.
