The Real Threat To The Republic

 


In a recent editorial in a local newspaper a Democratic forum editorial declared “Republicans are a threat to the Republic.” For five years now, whenever the Democrats or Obama are perturbed, it is blame it on Bush or the Republicans. For a lot of Americans including me think that It’s a rather childish and babyish approach, and, frankly, it is getting tiring and enough is enough.

The editorial was referring to the recent government shutdown and the supposed devastation to the economy it created. The only part of that statement that is true is that it was devastating bur that is far as it goes. That problem could have been solved early and easily if all of congress would have agreed to negotiate. But if we could please, recall that Majority Leader Harry Reid’s contribution to the negotiations was always “No, he was not interested.” Out in the field with the liberal crowds (Obama gave me a free cell phone crowd) cheering in the background, President Obama said he was always ready to talk to the Republicans, but as soon as he arrived back at the White House, his attitude and actions was uncooperative and different from when he was on the road. Because of this kind of situation, the agreement to stop a government shutdown was only accomplished at the last hour.

The article also implies that tax payer’s money is not paying for Obamacare. Who do they think are the ones, financing the Web page with over a billion dollars spent to date and it is still no working! And why did Obama decide on a Canadian firm to develop the Web page for Obamacare and keep them on after their obvious incompetence was exposed? There needs to be an answer to these two questions. Why did Obama give the task of developing the web site to another country and the last question is why were they kept on after their incompetence was greatly visible?

And, finally, many of my fellow Americans voices are being heard in anger over Obamacare and the soaring debt which had gone from $8 trillion under all other presidents to the current $17 trillion under Obama in five years. Now this is truly the threat to our country. It is pulling our country under. Fellow Americans this must be stopped. Obama and his liberal friends are more of a threat to our country than any foreign power.

Obama Lied

Obama lied to all of us about the Affordable Care Act, (better known as Obama Care) that was forced onto the American public, from a Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, a Democrat controlled Senate and by a Democrat president in the White House. The Affordable Care Act legislation was written behind closed and locked doors by the Senate Democrats and House of Representatives Democrats and the bill was passed by Democrats. So much for being out in the open about it. I think the word Obama uses is being transparency. Now we have all heard Obama from the very start of Obama Care telling us if we liked our doctors we could keep them, if we liked our insurance we could keep it. (He Lied and he knew it when he said it) Well what did he mean? He now says that isn’t what he meant. That in my opinion is called back peddling or better yet lying. Sorry, you can only keep your insurance if, nothing has changed with it, including cost increases, and it has to have certain things covered. You need mental health, maternity and substance abuse, etc. Well here is the thing about that; At nearly 68 years of age I do not need maternity or substance abuse coverage, but I and a lot of other Americans still have to purchase it. When you come right down to it, no one gets to keep their insurance. Obama has lied from the very beginning of it. It was covered up by Nancy Pelosi’s great revelation to the American people; “You have to pass it to see what is in it. That is the dumbest statement ever! And now because it was passed before we knew what was in it the federal government is now requiring the American people to buy coverage that a person does not need or want. The fault (better yet disaster) or problems with Obama Care are at the feet of the Democrats and no one else because most of them passed a bill that they never read and now most of them are back peddling also. They did not care because it did not pertain to them. Americans would have better laws if the House, Senate and White House did not have the power to exempt themselves from them. If your representative or senator voted for an exemption from Obama Care for themselves and their families, they need to be voted out of office. They are not above the law. They should be held to the law (same standards), like all the other American citizens in this country that they are supposed to be representing.

The Spy Who Knows Nothing

aria_c11332720131103120100   It was reported a few days ago Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, called up Barack Obama, to admonish him (other words to tell him off) for his administration’s determination to listen in on her private phone calls? That goes just a bit too far. I would like to have listened in on that exchange between Obama and her, but that would not have happen because I don’t work for the National Security Agency. I wonder who Obama blamed this on.

The chancellor said she unequivocally disapproves of such practices and sees them as completely unacceptable, a Merkel spokesman said, the Germany interior minister is demanding the United States provide “complete information” on the spying project that is being conducting against the German government. The spokesman added that “between close friends and partners ... there should be no such monitoring of the communication of the leaders of government. That would be and is a grave breach of trust.. But breach of trust seems almost to be the way to go at the NSA under Obama. A carefully worded statement from the White House press secretary Jay Carney said, “The President assured the chancellor that the United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of Chancellor Merkel.” There was no indication of past tense in Mr. Carney’s statement. But the chancellor knows just like most Americans do that you cannot believe anything that comes out of his mouth or from his so called transparent government.

All Americans need to support the work of the NSA to some degree. The United States needs a stout ability in this age of increasing danger. But the NSA does not have to tap the German chancellor’s cell phone. That is going way too far. Since then we here the Catholic Pope’s phone was also taped by the NSA. Now where is the threat to national security there? Although we know that the current concept of privacy is a impressionable one, because of all the threats to national security and the casual manner with which many Americans toss around their personal information on social media, like Face Book and Twitter but that doesn’t mean that it is a right for Obama or the NSA to spy on The American people either. It is Indeed a time to set tougher standards for the NSA. Although we need a spy agency, we do not need a bunch of thugs who work for a want to be dictator going around spying on everybody.

The Obama administration has been embarrassed by the NSA spying on other European allies including France and Spain. According to reports at least 35 countries may have been monitored or spied on by the NSA under Obama.. While many people have grave concerns about the actions of the former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who is now holed up in Moscow, it was his revelations that have prompted a national conversation about the junction of espionage with personal privacy and national interests. We expect more from the president than “I didn’t know it was going on,” (HE LIES) It is just another example of Obama’s tendency to deflect criticism by claiming ignorance or else blaming it on someone else. Once again let me insert here that Obama is deceiver and a liar. Spying on the American people, our allies and friends fits Obama’s sneaky personality to a tee. Americans cannot even talk on their cell phone without knowing if they are being spied on. Now we are being spied on by the internet. When will it ever stop? We do not live in a communist country or do we? The fact is, under Obama we are heading that way fast.

Obama’s claim that he was in the dark and was backed up by the NSA, (Of course they will not blame Obama. They would fall on the sword first.) But German newspapers claim that Obama had been informed of the spying operation. You will never hear that from our liberal newspapers. Whether Obama knew about it in advance or not, this incident and many others like it have damaged America’s reputation with key allies. It’s up to Obama to repair those relations with our allies and he could start by taking responsibility rather than dodging it. But that is something that he will never do. Past experience tells us that he will blame it on everybody and everything before he will that the blame.
