In part 1, this writer looked at a few of the radicals who surround and influence the President, and at his words, asking people to judge him by the people with whom he surrounds himself. Part 2 looks more deeply into the shadowy world of Barack Obama and his extremist, radical comrades.
Radical immigration reformists fervently believe in Open Borders and amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens and in permitting the importation and legalization of their remaining family members. They believe just as fanatically that American citizens owe these invaders a job, healthcare, education, food stamps, welfare, and voting privileges even before an amnesty. Obama is so entrenched in his radical immigration stance that he ordered his Justice Department to sue states that require photo ID to prevent illegal aliens from voting.
In his latest act of blatant, lawless, tyranny, Barack Obama shredded the Constitution by culling another group of illegals from the alien herd and magically declaring them as legal. Obama and the leftists’ cry for comprehensive immigration reform means giving complete legal status and legitimacy to these illegal and illegitimate squatters. All of which is against federal law and most state laws. Nevertheless, Barack Obama has barefaced disregard for the Constitution and the laws of the United States.
Strain on the already overburdened education, healthcare, penal, and welfare systems of the states led several to take actions of self-defense to enforce the law. Obama then opened up another front in his war declaration upon the people of those states by suing law-abiding Americans in federal court. Rationalizations that illegal aliens do the work Americans will not do is as ludicrous as the claim they pay more than enough in taxes to pay their own way. The fact is that it costs American taxpayers tens of billions of dollars a year to provide a few businesses with this cheap labor.
Illegal aliens take jobs from lower-income Americans, especially young inner-city blacks and poor whites already struggling to live without taxpayer funding. Liberals take college tuition from Americans by giving instate tuition rates to those here illegally, while American citizens in other states go wanting by paying higher tuition and in fact, subsidize foreigners.
Barack Obama is the most radical anti-gun rights President in history. In a 2008 debate, he said, “…just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can’t constrain the exercise of that right…”
He voted to allow lawsuits designed to bankrupt the firearms industry, called for the renewal of the failed Clinton gun ban, categorically opposes your right to carry for self-defense, and includes as “sensible regulation” prosecuting people who use a handgun in their own home for self-defense. He also believes that “what works” in Chicago is a complete ban on handgun ownership. He will interpret another term in office as a mandate to order his own version of Americans’ gun rights. What Obama says
Obama’s radical, Marxist economists and their agendas of anti-capitalism, income redistribution, and social justice, are unmistakably reinforced with his every speech and policy. His ignorance and naïveté of the failed Marxist/ socialist states that became authoritarian police states is appalling and fraught with peril for all Americans. Moreover, every economy using his philosophy has failed miserably at enriching anyone but the elites like Obama and his comrades.
He and his Radical economists believe all commerce must filter through the federal government, allowing complete and total control and regulation by the state; including determining profits and picking winners and losers. This President has turned a bad economy into a complete and unmitigated disaster with his leftist ideas.
Radical anti-American globalists love Barack Obama with a passion unseen by any previous group favoring World Government. Among his first official acts as Commander-in-Chief was to set off on a series of apology tours in which he insulted our friends and begged forgiveness from our enemies. He made it plain to the world that American interests would be secondary to the interests of the U.N., NATO, and other world organizations. Iran, North Korea, and other despotic nations immediately had a clear understanding that they were now dealing with a weak, ineffective American leader in Barack Obama.
The United Nations is a world body seeking One-world Government. Their agendas are totally anti-American, and they seek more and more control over our internal policies, national defense, finances, and commerce. Every UN treaty, pact, charter, or consensus unhinges our sovereignty and weakens every constitutional right of our people. Their goal is to systemically usurp American independence and make the United States part of, and subservient to, a world government.
In the bowels of the UN there connives an evil organization detrimental to the very survival of our constitutional Republic. If Americans were truly informed by the media or our political leaders of the undertakings and plots of the authoritarian members and missions of the entire body, they would overwhelmingly demand our immediate withdrawal and their member nations and its complete organization expelled from our shores.
Two more radical, leftwing Supreme Court Justices now sit on the nation’s highest court, appointed by this President. Another four years in office will likely result in at least two more appointments and shift the court to an unheard of bastardization, and rewriting of the Constitution. The appointing of Justices during the next four years could very well determine the lifespan of the entire package of liberal, progressive, Marxist, and socialist legislation passed in the last few decades. Likewise, it could determine if we live our future as free Americans or merely exist under the chains of a totalitarian regime.
Radical union bosses are in control of much of the Democratic Party’s base and Barack Obama. These bosses owe their souls to Obama, the Democrats, and their henchmen. The Public-Sector Unions rule these politicians with an ironfisted death-grip. Obama owes his presidency to the top dogs of the unions, and they will never let him forget this allegiance.
The public-sector unions, to which Obama bows, have bankrupted every state that allowed politicians and unions to conspire against the taxpayers. A conspiracy that saddled generations of taxpayers with overwhelming, longtime liabilities for salaries and benefits in the public-sector that far surpassed anything available for similar work in private business. When the bills came due, they hired Obama to raid the national treasury and pay for their political deals and corruption. The “Stimulus Package” was largely designed as payback to the unions.
The mainstream media, academia, and Hollywood, all look at America through a distorted prism of radical, leftwing ideology. Their philosophies are the same revolutionary, transformative, liberty-crushing schemes in which Barack Obama places his misguided beliefs. These three groups contain the vast majority of the far-left militants and extremist groups in the country. Unfortunately, they are also the groups that control most of the news and information, and administer the indoctrination of our people.
The country’s most radical leftists are the people to whom Barack Obama owes not just his allegiance, but his very existence. So by all means, let’s judge Barack Obama by the people with whom he surrounds himself. And when we do, should we really wonder about security leaks coming from this White House? The entire Obama administration and everyone around him is a security leak!
The country is in an age of incomprehensible collusion between the progressive-leftwing media, a tax-and-spend Congress, and a collectivist administration. Together, they rule the American people with iron-fisted oppression using unelected bureaucrats and presidential edicts. Indeed, America is in an age of tyranny with a government disregarding the laws that they find inconvenient, and simply writing new ones with the stroke of Obama’s pen.
Seemingly, every week Obama opens up a new front in his war against the American people. He considers healthcare, financial institutions, religious freedom, immigration, and voter ID laws all part of his personal crusade to impose his unconstitutional will upon all Americans.
Four years of no concerns about another election will result in unchecked oppression by this authoritarian President and will assure unfettered domination of the American people, their institutions, and their culture. His unconstitutional tyranny will be uncontrollable. Just think how many more fronts he can open up in his war on Americans with four more years.
“Radicals of the World Unite – Reelect Barack Obama.” How’s that for a Presidential campaign slogan for 2012?
This is our country, our freedom, our money, and our property that Obama craves. Stopping this radical is an essential pro-American endeavor. The destructive forces unleashed by four more years are inconceivable.

A common theme since the Occupy Wall Street pageants commenced last year has been that Democrats and more specifically the President somehow represent the 99% and that Republicans only support the 1 %. This misguided thinking is aided and abetted by the Administration and mainstream media which continuously and purposely try to divert attention from the real issues that are Nation is suffering from (issues where President Obama’s track record is weak at best). The President would have Americans focus on themes that have no impact on the economic wellbeing of middle and lower class families. Sideshow issues such as the “war on women”, “gay marriage” , “temporary piece of tape on a 30 year old immigration crisis and Mitt Romney’s dog come to mind (although this list is significantly longer).
Masterfully, the 99% vs. the 1% storyline has been extended to the current discussion over a very important issue: Taxes.
The previously negotiated tax increases or the end of tax reduction period is set to take place on “Taxmageddon”, January 1st, 2013. It will crush our already fragile economy and seriously impact lower and middle class families. There will roughly be 500 billion dollars in annual tax increases. The media has painted this situation as a Robin Hood scenario, whereby only the idle rich get soaked, but let’s look at the facts. What actually happens when the clock strikes midnight on January 1?
First, we have the expiration of what are called “the Bush” tax cuts. Then factor in Obama Care which is set to implement the first 5 of its 18 new taxes in 2013. Heritage Foundation’s Curtis Dubay reports that American households (the 99%) can expect to face an average tax increase of $3,800 and that 70 percent of Taxmageddon’s impact will fall directly on low-income and middle-income families, leaving their pocket books $346 billion lighter.
According to the American Enterprise Institute’s James Pethokoukis, tax increases from 1980-93 add up to 3.3% of GDP in thirteen years vs. 3.5% of the GDP just for just one year in 2013.
Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke came out recently and spoke about the brazen amount of tax hikes that would kill the American economy saying; “under current law, on January 1st, 2013 there’s going to be a massive fiscal cliff of large spending cuts and tax increases.” Those are simply the facts. Here’s a glimpse at the increases that are scheduled to kick in for the five different tax brackets according to U.S News:
The 10 percent bracket rises to 15 percent (the highest % increase)
The 25 percent bracket rises to 28 percent
The 28 percent bracket rises to 31 percent
The 33 percent bracket rises to 36 percent
The 35 percent bracket rises to 39.6 percent*
(* rate at which 2/3 of small businesses profits are taxed)
So, while the Obama Administration paints this tax increase as something that only affects the 1% – notice that it affects the lower and middle wage earners significantly more, with a 50% rise in taxation in the lowest tax bracket. Distracting the public with class warfare rhetoric or other smoke and mirror tactics to achieve re-election is disingenuous, selfish and lacks leadership and integrity. What would really help lower level wages earners is to have more and better available JOBS and a thriving economy. Remember this, according to the Congressional Budget Office the U6 number (the unemployment figure which includes people who have supposedly STOPPED looking for work) tells us actual unemployment was 14.8% in May. Under President Obama we have seen the largest actual unemployment numbers since the U6 figure was established in 1990 and unemployment at levels similar to the Great Depression. The economy needs confidence and stability; we are in the midst of a crisis of economic confidence and instability.
Some simple things to restore confidence now are to extend the “Bush” Tax Cuts, put in place an actual budget (which Congress has put off for over 3 years), cut government regulations which are stifling small business and focus on creating pro-business, job creation environment. Take the government’s foot off the neck of small business and help get that that U6 number down and get America back to work!
Keep your eyes on the ball and don’t let this Obama dazzle us with his sleight of hand tricks and remember the countdown is on for January 1st, 2013…. TAXAPALOOZA!!

Remember Rahm Emanuel? He was chief of staff in the ultra-liberal, radical left wing Obama White House.
He is the same man whom Rush Limbaugh refers to as “Deadfish” (an allusion to Chicago Mafia violence), and who is now the (get this) mayor of Chicago.
As mayor, Rahm gets to negotiate contracts with the Teachers Union. But will a liberal Democrat mayor have the nerve to go against the liberal teacher unions? Or will it all be gangland theater? Let’s take a look at the players:
The Chicago teachers, already in charge of some of the most mis-educated children in the nation (perhaps in the world), are demanding a modest pay raise – if you can call 30 percent modest.
Yes, you read that right (unless you went to a Chicago public school, in which case you possibly cannot read at all). The under-performing teachers, in addition to all their perks and benefits and days off and tenure and sick leave and health insurance and lifetime job security for doing nothing –- want more money.
They don’t want to be held accountable for their performance. They don’t want to compete in the private sector. They don’t want to be evaluated. They do not wish to be judged based on their results.
They just want thirty percent more money.
And if you believe their protest signs, they also wish to be loved. But wait. Isn’t love, when expressed with dollar signs, called prostitution?
In any case, Rahm Emanuel has a wonderful opportunity to take a stand, to defy the teacher union, and to institute both money-saving and education-improving reforms. He could start by eliminating collective bargaining for the teacher unions, or at least lobbying his state government to do so.
But that is not going to happen. Chicago is in Illinois, not Wisconsin. And Rahm Emanuel is no more interested in cutting costs or in improving education than the teachers are. If he were, he would be a Republican, not a Democrat.
Rahm, like his former boss the president, is a Chicago politician. As such, he understands how to survive on the waterfront and in the back alleys. You make deals. You give something to get something, so long as the something that you give is not your own money, but somebody else’s.
The way the game is played, the teachers demand thirty percent, the mayor offers ten, and they settle on a twenty percent pay raise for the teachers, with the taxpayers getting nothing in return except the bill and more mis-educated children. Rahm Emanuel, of course, gets money for his reelection campaign.
Oh wait, Rahm, tough guy that he is, wants the teachers to work more hours. Not more hours than a private sector worker, just more hours than a nine month per year public employee teacher who already is not doing anything productive. Even Rahm has run up against the mathematical reality of busted budgets. So he wants to squeeze the teachers for more hours. Then he can claim to be another Scott Walker, but with union support.
To bolster the teacher union demands, something like forty percent of Chicago voters favor the teacher union position. What is not said, however, is that most of those forty percent are themselves already on the government dole in one form or another – whether they are themselves on the tax funded payroll, on welfare, or have relatives who are slopping at the government trough. But the union would have us believe that those forty percent are hard working, tax paying citizens who applaud the wonderful results that the teachers are supposedly accomplishing.
The real victims in all this are the kids, especially the ones who struggle mightily to escape the educational slavery of a system that plunders their family money, and destroys their souls, while claiming to “love” them. These are the kids who line up by the thousands whenever there is the slightest opportunity to get a rare seat in a charter school – you know, the schools where students can actually learn something other than to chant, “mmm-mmm-mm, Obama.”
The real villains are the majority of teachers who, poor souls, were themselves the product of under-performing public schools. But they are no longer victims. They are traitors.
The real villains are the politicians who use the children as human shields, claiming to protect them from fiscal and social conservatives who, when WE run the schools, do a better job of it.
Are there heroes in this tragedy? Yes. There actually are a few good teachers who work hard, who actually know how to write a coherent paragraph, who can solve binomial equations, and can name the century in which the Civil War occurred. But there are scant few of them, and most of them get the boot from jealous administrators fearful of virtuous souls.
Millions of dollars in union dues were spent on a failed effort to unseat and punish the Wisconsin governor who had the courage of his convictions, and the temerity to improve a failing system. Millions of dollars in union dues go to politics, and not one cent to the students.
It’s the Chicago Way.

Part 1 of 2
When one looks at the heartbreaking state of affairs in our great country, one needs to look no further than the corrupt Chicago connection and the radical-leftist academic management of the White House. Every far-left, fringe element in the country embraces Barack Obama in his bitter vendetta against the U.S. Constitution and the laws and culture of our nation; even worse, Obama embraces them.
The fanatical militants once so much at home among the violent circles of America’s Left are now welcomed in an open-armed love-fest by one of their own. This unprecedented admittance to the White House gives them not only the ear of the president, but his heart, as well. The swaggering, arrogant, fanatical militants high step their newfound powerful influences into every liberal-progressive corner in America, then track their red-stained footprints into the Oval Office.
The Marxists and Communists, who skulked through the back alleys and darkened doorways, and led the cheers for Mao and Che, proudly fill the halls of academia and whisper sweet-radicalism to the President of the United States. These extremists now write our laws and pack the panels, committees, and governing boards that control and run all the country’s bureaucracies. In short, they control the lives of mainstream Americans.
During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Barack Obama asked the American people to, “Judge him by the people with whom he surrounded himself.” Compare these incredible words with those from his biography, Dreams of My Father, “I chose my friends carefully: the more politically active black students, the foreign students, the Chicanos, the Marxist Professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.” Here is just one more place where proper vetting by the media would have revealed the really duplicitous nature of this man.
His inauguration was the initiation for Obama’s betrayal of the country. He recruited his crew of Communists, Marxists, and Maoists, to work on his anti-constitutional directives and bring the country into alignment with his idea of a perfect America. From this point, the road was straight and the direction was narrow and unquestionable; Barack Obama’s far-left radical agenda is so anti-traditional American, and anti-constitutional, he stands alone atop the presidential most villainous list.
Remember, he chooses his friends carefully and wants Americans to judge him by the people with whom he surrounds himself. Let’s make a critical examination of the President of the United States, his friends, and the people to whom he refers.
Let’s begin with Obama’s radical spiritual advisor and personal friend, the race-baiting bigot and class warfare specialist, Jeremiah Wright – a blatant redistribution of wealth advocate, and brazen follower of Black Theology. After sitting in a pew for over twenty years listening to Wright’s hateful sermons, Obama denied he ever heard the insidious, anti-white, anti-Jew, and anti-American ideas of his radical friend. Going further, he stated, “I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community.”
He doubled down on this outrage by turning to another radical, race-baiting bigot and class warfare specialist, Jim Wallis, as his next spiritual leader. Wallis is also a blatant redistributionist with the same unabashed Black Theology philosophy as Jeremiah Wright.
Add a third extremist and hater, Shiloh Baptist’s Pastor, Wallace Charles Smith to Obama’s spiritualists. In 2011, Obama and his family chose to attend an Easter sermon delivered by this Pastor who fumed that he heard institutional racism in the gurgle of his infant grandson. Earlier in 2010, Smith ranted that the country is still racist, and that racists get programs on Fox News. For good measure, he added that Rush Limbaugh is the new KKK.
For decades, radical environmentalists yearned for a president to carry out policies so extreme as to bring a modern industrial nation to its knees. This administration not only welcomes these wackos, but unconditionally embraces every job destroying, utility-raising, and economic-depressive idea that crosses their convoluted minds.
This regime reveres a group of unprincipled, evil, extremists, but is unwilling to draw upon its own natural resources for the betterment of its people. They are willing to starve their own citizens of liberty and banish them to live at the feet of the world’s tyrants; a position apparently welcomed by this president.
His braggadocios declaration about bankrupting anyone wanting to open a new coal-fired power plant and his aspiration for electricity costs to skyrocket, gives one just a glimpse of his ill feelings for the American people. His policies are destroying the coal industry and halting nearly all the domestic drilling for oil on public lands and the continental waters. Obama’s irrational actions further accentuate his complete and total war on carbon-based energy businesses; which translates into another front in his war on Americans.
In part 2 of “Obama’s Radicalization of the American Presidency” coming next week, we examine radicals like the immigration reformists, anti-gun fanatics, globalists, left-wing economists, MS media, and many, many more of Barack Obama’s friends and closest political allies.
