Take a look at President’s actions and read the agenda

-A A +A
By Robert E. Beckner

It’s been a couple of months now since we got ourselves a new Democratic administration, so it’s about time we took an overview of the President’s campaign slogans of “change” and “hope”.

In this short period of time we are already so deep into government intervention that constitutional objections are just swept aside. 

The last Treasury Secretary brought the nine largest banks into his office and informed them that he was now their partner. 

His successor is now seeking the power to seize any financial institution or business that he thinks may cause trouble for the administration’s ambition to rewrite the American social compact.  Clearly this is just one more step into socialism. 

So now the President is CEO of the car industry as well as banks and Wall Street.  The President went further and fired GM’s CEO and packed the new board, putting himself further into the car industry.  He even grants warranties to buyers of GM cars, the ones he has told GM they must build.  

He has personally guaranteed that all needed parts will be provided at no cost to the buyer, with our tax money.

He must realize now that he has made a big mistake. The cars and banks were to be sideshows, but with the financial meltdown, he kept them to be sure they didn’t fail.

He should have let the car industries go into bankruptcy, then the federal judge would have controlled their Chapter 11s and the judge would have given out all the bad news to the car workers, the Unions and the bondholders and they wouldn’t hold him responsible for all the changes to the companies the judge will dish out.

The President’s real agenda is the trinity of health care, education and energy.  Out of these will come a very radical extension of the welfare state, social and economic leveling in the name of “fairness.”

It’s socialism at least, as it will be a massive increase in the size, scope and reach of government.  It all fits exactly into the definition of socialism. 

This is not the “change” Americans wanted.  They have been fooled by his fancy language and of calling every spending plan an investment, when all it really is his redistribution of our tax money.  He wants to recast the relationship between government and citizens, to have the government narrow the nation’s income – and to do so, he claims he will only soak the rich for reasons of revenue and justice. 

He wants to grant citizens of all classes, health care and college at no cost to his chosen class of people. He feels that only the rich enjoy these benefits presently. 

This is his new American social order: fairness through leveling has been his goal all along as he states, for “purposes of fairness.”

The fact that this causes highly progressive taxation for his federal health care and higher education for all and other revenue producing controls, to him is reason enough for his support of raising the “capital gains tax”, “keeping the death tax” and all his other “secret taxes” and schemes that the government doesn’t talk about, like the cap and trade tax proposal that will cost every family who uses electricity to pay $1,800 of increase taxes. 

Now that he almost has the budget that he wanted through the democratically controlled House and Senate, his big three desires will be coming up soon. 

The passage of the President’s budget only moves the country one step closer to socialism with taxes going up and freedom going down. 

The budget that just passed is the largest budget in the history of our country. It’s more than all other budgets from George Washington to George W. Bush — and the end isn’t in sight.

Keeping up with the current administration’s activities, the Judicial Watch Group, through their very efficient ability to gain information through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), has discovered that Barney Frank and his liberal allies in Congress have known for years that members of Congress were aware that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were playing fast and loose with accounting issues, risk assessment issues and executives compensation issues. All the while they were being led by Barney Frank, who continued to block attempts to regulate the two Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSE’s). 

Even with correspondence and records about contracts between the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and Fannie and Freddie, Congress clearly ignored corruption.

We now know members of Congress were aware of the massive problems at Fannie and Freddie going back at least six years. 

Our President must somehow be made to stop the direction he is rapidly taking our Country in: to socialism. Cool and sane heads must prevail.  His “in-your-face” attitude clearly, daily, shows his “appeasement of all our enemies.” 

Doesn’t he know any world history, especially just prior to World War II, and how Neville Chamberlain of England tried to appease Germany’s Hitler and the results of that farce? 

By reducing our nuclear stock pile, forcing our armed forces to forgo new planes, ships and vehicles, reducing the military budget (just like Presidents Carter and Clinton), destroying our ability to listen in on our enemies’ telephone calls, clearly accelerates the process of undercutting our country’s military readiness. 

Our services badly need to replace equipment worn out by the “war on terror” in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He has announced that government employees have been told they can not use the term or the word “terrorists” anymore.

While I was watching television on March 6, 2009, I saw our President bow to the Saudi Arabian King!  Unheard of!  Also he said that  America was arrogant and, while in Turkey, “America is not a Christian nation” and  “We are not now at war with the Muslins and never will be.”  

Remember his father was Muslim.  When you look at the above and see what else he has said that the major mainstream news media won’t report, it directs attention to the loss of the personal control of our lives, it’s clearly socialism or even worse. 

He supports “affirmative action” in colleges and government. 

He supports extending welfare to “illegal alien immigrants,” plus allowing these foreigners to participate in our social security programs without their paying even a dime. 

Are these truly things you approve of?  It’s just spending your tax money for his own hand-picked people. He says it’s all “fairness” – but fair to whom?  Not American citizens.

He has also voted “no” on notifying parents of minors who get abortions.  He has voted “yes” on providing “habeas corpus” to Gitmo terrorist’s prisoners. 

President Bush took this right away from all Americans several years ago to get to American terrorist prisoners to talk. 

Obama is proposing putting his own “person” in charge of the upcoming census.  Even if the collectors have to guess at whom and how many live in a certain house, the overall numbers count greatly as to where new congressional seats go and millions of government funds.
