Statist Of The Union: Reading Between The Lies

Obama’s Getting Angry And Desperate… And It’s Showing

SOTU: The Most Audacious Lies Yet

The pundits are all having their say on President Obama’s latest campaign speech, not-so-cleverly disguised as  Wednesday night’s “State of the Union” speech. We’ve already heard the points made eloquently by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and others.  I fully expect Mark Levin, the brilliant author of “Liberty and Tyranny” to have a full-on stroke on tonight’s radio program (if he hasn’t already). If anyone can put last night’s Obamanation into perspective, it will be Levin. I only hope EMTs will be present in the studio.

Let’s start with the bottom line: Obama’s speeches mean nothing any more. That was evident last night when he told the most audacious lies about transparency and accountability (via his claim about not hiring lobbyists to staff positions). That was the first time I’ve ever heard a President’s State of the Union speech draw laughter from both sides of the aisle when he was attempting to make a serious point.

In short, this was the least statesman-like State of the Union speech in recorded history. Much of the time on podium was spent criticizing, directly or indirectly:

  • The Bush Administration
  • The Supreme Court
  • Congress – the Senate more so than the House
  • Harry Reid (by innuendo) for his failure to shove the healthcare bill down our throats
  • The American public (by innuendo)  for his rapid decline in the polls

He  has threatened to use “Executive Orders” to bypass Congress if they don’t advance his agenda. Yes, those were warning sirens you heard in your head. Heed them. Forget about whether or not Obama can legally do this. He will do it if he feels it’s the only way to accomplish his goals, and then he’ll challenge us to undo the damage. Bet on it.

With his personal failure obvious to everyone but himself, Obama has adopted the Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” philosophy of “Step on the gas” in pushing forward before we have a chance to get rid of him legally (sobering thought: We have three more years of this sentence with Obama. So how does that “Hope” and “Change” look to you now, Sparky?)

Anyone who is unable to see that the danger we face today is greater than it was a year ago just isn’t paying attention.

A year ago, he had just taken office, and had (in his mind) a mandate from the American public that would support whatever changes he was ready to implement.

A year later, much of that public has awakened from their stupor to realize just what America would be like under Obama’s dream/nightmare. Gradually, America woke to find an extreme radical living in the White House as President. They found he had appointed (with no exposure to the normal Senate Confirmation hearings) people one would never see as having America’s interests at heart. People like self-avowed communists, tax cheats (dozens of them in his cabinet or staff, with one of them heading the IRS), devotees of Mao Tse Tung (who had millions of his own countrymen summarily murdered). And worse.

We saw that he had legislation being developed that would allow him to cut off the public’s access to the Internet – “if the President deems it an emergency.”  After discovering how Bill Clinton defined “Oral Sex” as not really being sex, one definitely should be wary of leaving it up to Obama to define the word “emergency.”

Suddenly, Obama is no longer the darling of the American voters. And the tone of his speech last night reflected his realization of that. If you compare last night’s speech to any one of the many upbeat campaign speeches during his run for the Presidency, you will note a tremendous difference: two years ago, he was cocky, suave, convincing,  and full of himself. He was able to sell his disguised message easily, calling it “Hope and Change.”  He bathed in the adulation as he secretly made his plans to dismantle our Republic and re-make it in his own image.

Last night, he was even more cocky, almost defiant in places as if to say, “So what if the bloom is off the rose? I won. And I’m going to implement my agenda, whether you or Congress like it or not.”  Look up the word “tyranny”, folks. You’re going to be hearing that word a lot this year, I fear.  Because last night, the Statist exposed himself. In so many words, he’s announced that the gloves are off.

It would be wise to stay vigilant and keep in mind the words of two important Americans from our history: Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.

Jefferson said:
“When the government fears the people, there is liberty.
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

OK, now ask yourself:
Do you think Obama fears us? Yeah, me neither.
Do you fear Obama and the changes he wants to force on America?
Bingo.
And it was Franklin who said:
“Those that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

In other words, if you aren’t willing to take a stand against tyranny because it hasn’t hit you yet, don’t expect others to be there for you when it does. Many of those “others” are suffering now. Will you stand for them now on their behalf? Because that’s what being an American is all about. Ask any veteran.
As far as I’m concerned, the most important thing that resulted from last night’s campaign speech is that, in addition to thumbing his nose at the public that has caught on to him,  Obama has essentially flipped off the Supreme Court and both Houses of Congress. That means, he is has no intention of letting the Legislative or Judicial branches of the American Government get in his way. That’s tyranny, folks. Those two branches of government are all that stands between us and a tyrant. We already know of his disdain for the Constitution based on his actions.
If I’m right, he’s dancing ever so close to treason. And he’s getting angrier by the day. That anger, coupled with his immense ego (he used the word “I” in one form or  another 107 times in a 90 minute speech – but “It’s not about me…”) has set him up to do desperate things. We need to be more vigilant than ever.
One year down… and three to go.   Mmm-mmm-mmm… Barack Hussein Obama.

    Gerry, this so well written, I hardly know what to say. I can only “hope” that enough people were similarly struck by his speech to be moved to effect the “change” we desperately need in the coming elections.

    The real question, however, is not whether there will be sufficient numbers of people that are willing to vote against Obama’s party and his policies, but rather will the Republicans be ready to offer strong conservative candidates for whom we can vote. If they don’t, the opportunity will be for naught.

    • Gerry Ashley says:

      Thank you for the kind comments, Tom. You’re 100% right about the Republican party. They have the opportunity of a lifetime, if they don’t squander it. The odd thing is, so do the Democrats. They have the opportunity (and the NEED) to reinvent themselves by moving as far away from the Obama agenda as possible. If they do that, and the Republicans don’t get their act together, we will still be in the clutches of the political party of “Big Government” and THAT is what will bring this country down (if it’s not too late already) from a financial perspective.

      Conservatives? It’s the bottom of the 9th and you’re at bat.

    • Gerry Ashley says:

      Thank you, Doug. I just had to get that off my chest. I thought if I did, that I’d feel better. But with Obama “doubling down,” NONE OF US can pause for even a moment. The key question: are enough of the Democrats still falling for this rhetorical nonsense? Hopefully the survival of their political party is more important than playing “follow the leader” with a socialist.

    After you said “We’ve already heard the points made eloquently by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and others.” I couldn’t take anything else in this article seriously.

    • Gerry Ashley says:

      Ah… Sorry Bob. We can’t win ’em all. If you HAD kept reading, it would only been of value to you if you could read it with an open mind.

      But I thank you for stopping by.

    Not too sure how I found this blog but glad I did find it. Think I was looking for something else on google. Not sure I agree 100% with what you say, but have bookmaked and will pop back to read to see if you add any more posts. Keep up the good work.

    • Gerry Ashley says:

      Hi Eden,

      Thanks for your comments. Glad you found us and hope you will return.

      There are three of us who contribute to Grand Rants, and you’ll usually find a new “rant” every day from one of us.

      Not to worry about whether you agree or not. In fact, we invite responses with opposing views so long as they are done with respect and that you can document any claims made as “factual.” You’ll find we practice what we preach here in regards to having the data (and links to that data) to back up any claims we make.

      Again, thanks for your reply. I hope you’ll bookmark us and stop back on a regular basis.
