It’s perfectly clear to me.

Power is addictive.

    Deception to be elected and greater deception once elected about sums up the story. The manipulated public bought into the guise of "hope and change" because they were convinced to by the mouth peices of the greater agenda to do so. Terrorism, has become the mechanism by which they were sold the "protection" by the federal government. But yet the american public now finds itself becoming the center peice of who is a terrorist, because they are a threat to the agenda. Labeled by SPLC and then DHS, the average citizens is now the Federal Governments main enemy, not those who did the original attacking; those get the pass and the benifits by the government.
    Just as Saddam was kept as a "bogeyman", so is the narrative against the "terrorist", all to forment a greater plan of total control over the public.
    It is that simple. If you cant see that, then you just dont care in the first place.

    Obama says and then Obama does just that thing he critizes. This man has no scruples.

  3. "Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."

    Daniel Webster

  4. I’m starting to suspect the main reason for Obama keeping his history and identity such a secret is that his daddy is actually the Devil himself.

    Yes, one hears many comparisons to the Manchurian Candidate, but few to "Rosemary's Baby" or "The Omen". Still, barring the full disclosure of BO's educational records, this "much discredited" but still plausible account suggests "House of Saud Candidate" is a more likely origination story – http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0908/Obama… – A secondary narrative, less plausible but given BO's dependence on TOTUS, thought provoking, is that he is little more than a hired actor who is helpless without his script (written by who-knows-who), which puts him in the category of the protagonist of Heinlein's novel "Double Star" . . http://andscifi.com/double-star-robert-heinlein/

    Anyway, people who tag BO as a "closet Muslim" or a "closet Marxist" miss the point… BO is for BO, everything else is minor detail, as so many of his under-the-bus former allies, promoters, and faithful servants have discovered.

    UPDATE: Well, whaddya know… a bit more about the "Saudi Candidate" narrative: …. http://redflagnews.com/headlines/obama-vetting-19… – it has no date on it, so I don't know how long it's been out there.

    Power no doubt is addictive, but that conclusion in this case presupposes that Obama meant what he said when he said it in 2007. I think Obama's Job One has always been to score political points in order to GAIN power. His use of words and rhetorical skill in 2007, I believe, were intended to bring down in the public's eyes a current administration of the other party, in order to ease his own path to power. I doubt he cared about government surveillance per se, but only that it not be used against his supporters and that it be available for him to use against his detractors. I don't think Obama has ever befriended, let alone stumbled over, "principle."

    Americans are afraid and confused as to the extent of their governments involvement in discriminating against political groups by the IRS, EPA, AG, NSA and the State Department.

    I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
    James Madison

    The government is usurping the Constitution by violating our first and fourth amendment protections. The IRS picks conservative groups to delay and violate their right to free speech. The Attorney General sues our States to prevent them from protecting the people from invasion and alien law breakers. The Attorney General stops the Prosecution of the Black Panthers that harassed white voters outside a polling place. Next the White House lies about Benghazi and tries to spin it is a video caused issue.

    Now we find that the PRISM spy system is much bigger than the NSA and Administration told us it was. We now know that they can listen to phone calls, videos, emails, Skype contacts and much more. NSA head like all the other Department heads just flat out lied to the American people – we can not listen to your phone calls – not true now is it – they have billions of recorded calls and email or electronic communications. They told us it took a FISA court order for them to access our records, then they said – well if you receive calls from outside the US or from someone that is in the US but under a target warrant then you are now included in that warrant. What is the truth? It is impossible to tell as it is all SECRET and not even all of Congress is apprised of the acts.

    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
    Benjamin Franklin

    All of the violations of the Constitution are pushing the limits of we the people being governed by a RULE – BY – LAW system or a simple DEMOCRACY where whatever the majority votes for becomes the RULE – BY – MAN system. Under this system the minorities are at risk and the individual has no protection from tyranny and oppression. America is now operating with all three branches USURPING the Constitution and the limits on what power the Executive, the Courts and the Legislature has. As things are now the true and actual Constitution has been suspended in the name of protecting we the people from enemies both domestic and foreign.

    If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
    James Madison

    Let us think out of the box for a few minutes – the Progressive politic method has been to divide and then conquer each smaller group. Is this not what we see with the all out attack on Religions both Jewish and Christians? Are they not trying to get us to fight each other and to debate over our freedom of religion and the 1st amendment?

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.
    James Madison

  10. Obama will go down in history as one of the worst Presidents of the United Statres

  11. Seymour Kleerly says:

    What a shock! An administration not giving up power!

  12. After all , He is the biggest, hypocritical, pathological liar that ever lived, he even has Adolph Hitler eclipsed.

    In order to understand the Obama plan for this country. Take a minute to go to Discover the Networks.org and read Barack Obama's Rules for Revolution, the Alinsky model by David Horowitz 2009. Identified as a set of specific rules ordinary citizens could follow, and tactics that could be employed as a means of gaining power under the banner of social change…
    Saul Alinsky's Book.."Rules for Radicals" were studied by both Obama and Hillary Clinton, who did her thesis in college on.
    1. Overthrow existing order, 2. Fan flames of discontent, 3. Pit people against each other along social-economic lines,
    4. Demonize your enemies to create desired change. All this thru non-violent, behind the scenes tactics. It is all there laid out step by step. Using mass organization as Unions and Acorn. Cause public discontent, moral confusion and outright chaos to cause collapse of the gov. system in order to put in your own. Saul Alinsky's motto: The most effective means are whatever will achieve the desired results." In Holder's own words quoted: "Let no crisis go to waste." shows to use any means as a tool for the agenda you want to accomplish. The scandals, confusion, division are all tools being used against the American people now…..Google and read. Will leave you shocked.

  14. Phyllis Roberson says:

    You are correct..take a look at the article written by David Horowitz in 2009. Go to Discover the Networks.org
    see Barack Obama's "Rules for Revolution, the Alinsky model". and article on Saul Alinsky 's "Rules for Radicals" style of social agitation. You will understand the means of tactics of the takeover we are seeing now. Shocking
    Good information in your post. Hope more Americans would pay attention. Afraid the end of the American we all knew and cherished is very near.

    Some will fight and some will not . . the future of the REPUBLIC is on the line – we could slip into a real 100% Democracy by the continued ignoring the Constitutional limits on government.

    Without a secure border all this talk is just that TALK . . the billions spent on homeland security is wasted as it can not keep out the bad guys nor even identify them when they are here . . the current events like Boston and Fort Hood prove they are a waste of time and money . . secret prevents us from seeing that they are failed just as the TO BOG TO GOVERN Federal Government is failed and can not be trusted to manage anything – economy – no; energy policy – no; industrial policy – no; education systems – no; EPA – no; IRS – no; DOJ/AG – no; in fact they have every single agency operating as free wheeling . . no oversight just a ever growing budget.
