The unprecedented increase in unemployment has no doubt effected every U.S. citizen in one way shape or form. If you have not been laid off, then chances are you are close to someone who has been. You probably even have one or more within your family that has been let go in the past year. It touches the heart to hear of loved ones losing so much and then struggling month after month to find a way to replace the lost income. But who has been hurt the most throughout this financial recession? Believe it or not, it is the majority of those who voted Barack Obama into the Presidency, it is the Democrats and Independents.
Back in January of this year, when the unemployment rate was at 7.6%, many blamed President Bush for the unemployment disaster. And while he did play his own part in allowing the first stimulus package and the buy out of many banks, it was made dramatically worse by President Obama. Obama did not allow the economy to simply heal on its own, he pushed to further the national debt, crippling the U.S. dollar, and all the while convincing many Americans that it was the proper course of action to stimulate the economy.
President Obama and the mainstream media has since then lied numerous times telling the public the economy is growing, that unemployment rates are improving, and that we are going in the “right” direction. This could not be further than from the truth. And yet, his loyal followers, who are taking the brunt of the economic crisis, still listen and believe with unemployment now at a staggering 10.2%.
Why is it that those who are suffering the most from this situation continue unfailing support of the Obama administration? Is it that so many have grown so dependent on the government that they are still encouraged by the empty promises of Obama? Perhaps it’s the vainess of sticking beside one’s own race without question? Or maybe it is like rooting for your favorite football team, no matter what you will go with your political party for better or for worse. Many Americans regardless of social standing do not like to admit when they have made a mistake. What ever the case is, I think it can be all of the above. Sadly, according to Rasmussen Reports it is Obama’s supporters, the Democrats and the minority population, that are being hit the hardest by unemployment.
The data collected by the Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey states:
“Data from Rasmussen Reports national telephone surveys shows that 15.0% of Democrats in the workforce are currently unemployed and looking for a job. Among adults not affiliated with either major party, that number is 15.6% while just 9.9% of Republicans are in the same situation.”
How do I know who supported Obama the most? As reported by BBC News on exit polls in their article Who Voted For Obama, he had the most support from first time voters, young voters, Democrats, and minority groups. And ironically, 62% of those who voted for Barack Obama cited that the economy was their main factor. Since his appointment to office, it has only worsened and regressed at a rate that no one ever thought possible.
What has our President that promised so much hope and change done to improve our economic woes? Why, he has made them far more and far worse. If you were in deep financial debt would you try to get out by spending more money? No, of course not. You would hunker down and take out the frivolous things in your life to make up the difference while paying back what you owe little by little. Yet, this administration instead took it upon themselves to spend not only our money, but our children and our grandchildren’s money, in the hopes of stimulating an economy that had already been overspent.
Those who were in financial trouble would have been better off to slip into bankruptcy and to lose a few jobs rather than to become slaves to the federal government who bought out their stocks to “save” them. No company is too big to fail. Instead, the deeds of the Obama administration has bankrupted the entire nation and left us in debt to other countries. In the meantime, those who provide the unshaken support of our President suffer the hardest in false hope that he will somehow rescue them by paying their gas and mortgage. Is the Democrat party so hungry for power that they are willing to make more people dependent on the government in supplying their every need like with this healthcare bill, giving them the power over our very health and well-being? It will spiral America into more economic hardship and leave us at the mercy of the country with the greatest stock in America (a.k.a. China). In a once Republic nation that is now resembling a socialist/communist country, how ironic that we look to China for support at this time. (Why else did you think Obama is spending so much time over there?)
As I watched the news last night a glimmer of hope raised inside of me when I found that the Republicans had won in the Virginia and New Jersey votes. This shows that many of those who were seeking “change” with Obama are now seeing that his far left agenda is not right for America as well as with all left leaning politicians. It also reveals that the Democratic methods used to govern these states are not what the people want. And hopefully now realizing that they don’t need to be taxed through the nose to get their economy back on track, but have a leader that will simply spend frugally.
Now that the election is over we are hear from the Obama administration that it was no big deal to lose. With Robert Gibbs saying, that the election of Republicans to the governorships in Virginia and New Jersey was based on “very local issues that didn’t involve the president.” They may think that downplaying their loss will work on the American people, but it was clear to see during the campaigns that the story was quite different.
President Obama spent a considerable amount of time campaigning for the Democratic candidates in the weeks and days before the elections. Obama even said at one campaign rally for Jon Corzine, “I’m going to need you to knock on doors. I’m going to need you to make phone calls,” he said. “I’m going to need you to do the same thing you did last year.” Not to mention the commercials he did for Creigh Deeds, and the extensive hours he and Joe Biden put in just talking to people and rallying for their Democrat comrades. And now they say it’s nothing, just some local stuff that has nothing to do with the President?
I beg to differ. I think it has everything to do with the President and the way that these politicians aligned themselves with him and his policies. People are finally waking up and seeing that this “change” isn’t working and want to even the playing field. Although it is faint and some what a small victory, it is still hope. Not the Obama kind of hope mind you, but the kind that the American people are becoming informed and will stand up for the liberty and freedoms that have been uniquely theirs for centuries.
With the Copenhagen convention just six weeks away and the signing of a historically catastrophic treaty looming in the future, the White House is taking no breaks in working on climate bills that compliment the goals of the Climate Change Treaty. The Senate and Obama administration are wanting to modernize the electrical grids, shift away from oil and coal, and work towards cutting America’s greenhouse gas emissions by 20% over 2005 levels by 2020 and encourage the development of renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. Which will of course lead to a horrible economic hardship for America in itself. All in the name of a cause that doesn’t exist. And in the foot steps of a treaty that is focused on bringing about a new world government.
There has been talk of President Obama not attending the Copenhagen convention this December because he has his Nobel peace prize to accept. However, it is in the same vicinity and with the administration working so hard on bills that parallel the treaty itself I find it hard to believe that the President won’t be making a visit after his grand acceptance speech. After all, as a Nobel peace prize recipient, he has a duty to be part of the big Climate Change convention that will change the world forever.

And here is an eye opening article about the “criteria for success” in Copenhagen according to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon who stated, “We need to step back from narrow national interest and engage in frank and constructive discussion in a spirit of global common cause.”
Many of us consider freedom of speech an absolute right and to be one that we hold dear in the United States of America. That right, given by the first amendment is still allowed, however, it seems to be only when it is aligned with the Obama Administration’s agenda. Here is an article of how the White House tried to exclude Fox News from the press pool on October 22, 2009 as a disciplinary measure for their conservative take on news: http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/2009/10/escalation_white_house_tries_t.asp
And here is a great article from Wall Street Journal on how this is not all about Fox News, it’s about the media as a whole, or in other words, the freedom of press:
Talk about your Chicago politics. What is this, the White House or the basement of a Mafia social club?
This is a video discussing the White House trying to exclude Fox News. Even the self proclaimed liberal is just astounded by the actions of the Obama administration towards this news agency.
I do not have all the facts as of yet, but the information given in this video from what I have found seems to be accurate. It was also addressed on the Rush Limbaugh show today as well. I will of course write an article when I have more information. In the mean time, here it is, a video which as stated in the information, “On October 14th 2009, Lord Christopher Monckton, a noted climate change expert, gave a presentation at Bethel College in St. Paul, MN in which he issued a dire warning regarding the United Nations Climate Change Treaty which is scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009.”
If you are up for some new reading material, here is the “Framework Convention on Climate Change” documentation in pdf. It may provide some insight into what is instore for this upcoming “convention”.
When I originally posted this I was not sure as to the full extent of the truth, but everything I have found so far points to it as true.
Just recently President Obama was caught holding a radical anti-American book. Apparently, the President was reading this book on one of his overseas trips. Why would our President be reading something that does not inspire American greatness, but instead speaks about the decline of our once great nation?
In this book “The Post-American World”, written by Fareed Zakaria America is in a state of decline. It states that some kind of world order is starting to rise up led by countries like Russia, China, and India, and that it is starting to surpass America as the leading nation economically and militarily. Basically, this book suggests that America must not pursue superpower superiority, but rather learn to get along with the rest of the world.
One would have to wonder why our President would want to read such liberal crap. Does he believe what Fareed Zakaria states not only in his book, but also in the interview he has given in recent times to the likes of the BBC? I for one hope not. I was, along with many other Americans, raised to believe that America is the greatest country that has ever been in existence since the beginning of civilization. We achieved that status not by conquering and taking over lands, nor by our diversity, but by simply being free. It is our freedom that makes us great. It is our freedom that makes people all around the world want to live here. It is our can do spirit that inspires when the going gets tough we the people get tougher.
I am afraid that our President does not share that same view point. Instead of speaking about our great country for what it is, we catch him going overseas apologizing for what our country has done wrong in the past. Sure I will admit that we have made some mistakes in the past, but that does not out weigh those things that we have done that were good. We fought two wars in Europe and one in the Pacific just in the last century alone. Not for conquering, but instead we fought it for liberation of all people. We as a nation sacrificed many of our young men and women for the greater good of freedom. We as a nation freed many around the world. We even in the last eight years freed those in the Middle East from the likes of dictators like Saddam Hussein, and also from the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Not only has America defended the world from tyranny with our great military, but our nation has too often been very generous to other countries in need. Remember the tsunami that hit on December 26, 2004 in the Indian Ocean? Many nations like Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand were the hardest hit. Hundreds of thousands of people not only lost their homes, but also lost their lives. It was the U.S. that sent our naval fleet over there first to provide medical, food, shelter, and personnel to help those countries in their time of need. We did this without even being asked. That, my friends, is what America does. I don’t see that same honorable attitude from our current President. In fact, judging from his reading material it is quite the opposite, he does not represent the American spirit which many patriots have now come to miss.

When does the pursuit of peace become a threat to national security? One would think that allowing another country, one with a history of hostile intent, to take inventory of your nuclear arsenal would be at the top of that list of things not to do to cross that line. In order to maintain peace you have to maintain strength, according to the Reagan administration, which kept America safe for the entire term of Reagan’s presidency. To maintain strength, you must be able to have the upper hand in the possible event of a dispute taking place. For your enemy to know where you keep your top secret weapons gives them the advantage and the knowledge to take out your defense before or during the attack. What is there to keep your opponent from taking you out? If they know your moves, your weakness, your ability, they can prepare for combat and dramatically increase the likely hood of their success.
This is the scenario that the Obama administration is trying to carry out right now. President Obama is allowing Hillary Clinton to meet with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to form a treaty between the US and Russia. This treaty would allow the Russians to visit nuclear sites in America to count missiles and warheads. As put in the Fox News article, this “would constitute the most intrusive weapons inspection program the U.S. has ever accepted.” I do not know if Obama is keeping in mind that a favorite revered Russian past time is the strategic game of chess, lining up all their pieces perfectly before the irrevocable strike to debilitate their adversary.
Surly, being elected as President, Obama is not that naive. I would bet that he knows fully that this is another move to weaken America as we have seen in past actions by this President. He has weakened America by crippling our military by cutting out top weapons and funding, plunging the U.S. into staggering debt and unemployment, bowing to foreign leadership, releasing interrogation techniques, shutting down missile defense in Poland which left our east coast vulnerable to missile strikes, and showing our allies that the U.S. is no longer one that can be trusted. This latest atrocity, allowing Russia access to our Nuclear missiles and warheads, seems to be yet another step in the direction that the Obama administration has laid out in their agenda of the once great United States of America.
***Just a little note, upon researching this, most news articles have this story somewhat hidden in titles like “Clinton Arrives In Russia For Talks On Iran, Nuclear Arms” and “Clinton To Focus On Iran, Arms Reduction During Russia Visit”. It seems that most everyone is tip toeing around it and barely touching the story when it really is a big deal.***
