What's Behind the Policy Decisions of President Obama?

Being one of the most secretive presidents of all time, what is behind the policies and actions that President Obama has championed during his public career? He has spent millions of dollars to keep many of his records closed to scrutiny by an (un)inquiring press and a gaggle of Zombies who support him by not questioning anything he says or does.  

What shaped his thinking as he has gone through life?  Well, let's take a look at what we do know.  His immediate family (including his mostly absent father), his mother and grandparents were all left-leaning Socialists.  As a teenager in Hawaii, he was taken under the wing of Frank Marshall Davis, an admitted Communist and Obama's self-admitted mentor during his teen years.  At Occidental College and Columbia University, he paled around with professed radical students and faculty.  When he went to Chicago, after graduating from that bastion of liberal thought, Harvard University, to become a Community Organizer, he came under the tutelage of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, an admitted radical Socialist and a Black Liberation preacher who introduced him to the political machine in Chicago.  To get his start in politics, he was introduced, in their living room, by admitted domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadette Dohrn.  It could and should be concluded, therefore, that his career was overwhelmingly exposed to the Marxist/Socialist philosophy of those people, and in addition, he latched onto the writings of the “Father of Community Organizing”, Saul Alinsky.  In fact, as a lecturer at the University of Chicago law school, one of the courses he taught was the writings of Alinsky called, “Rules for Radicals”.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama proclaimed that he was going to “fundamentally change” America.  After almost 6 years since he first became president, what part of Alinsky's “Rules for Radicals” has Obama tried to implement to make us into a “social state” (a/k/a Socialism)?

According to Alinsky, there are 8 levels of control that must be in place to accomplish the “transformation of America”.  Here's what Alinsky said must be done:

          1. Control healthcare – if you control healthcare (Obamacare) you control the people.
    1. Poverty – increase the poverty level so it is easier to control the masses by providing most everything for them to live by providing government handouts.
    2. Debt – increase the debt to unsustainable levels thereby increasing taxes which will produce more poverty. (our national debt is now approaching $18 trillion).
    3. Gun control – remove the ability of the citizens to defend themselves against the government, which might then eventually lead to a police state.
    4. Welfare – take control of every aspect of their lives, food (food stamps), housing (Section 8 and sub-prime mortgages), and income.
    5. Education- get students in school and indoctrinate them and you'll probably get them to be followers for life.
    6. Religion- remove God from most all aspects of life, because a Godless society is easier to control.
    7. Class warfare- create envy between rich and poor because you can then overtax the rich because there are more poor people than there are rich people to vote for these taxes.

Do these 8 levels of control, advocated by Alinsky, seem to be part of Obama's policies for his “total transformation” of America?

Since we have a little over 2 years left of the Obama presidency, the only way to slowdown this assault on our representative democracy is to vote out his enablers in the Congress and Senate this November. Vote Republican this November for the good of our country.

Ferguson and the Real Race War

We have a Youtube Video from Bill Whittle, the conservative blogger and political commentator. He takes on the subject of the shooting of Michael Brown by a policeman whom the MSM loudly scream is white. The results are the ensuing riots and looting in Ferguson, MO by some very violent and greedy People.

Americans have been told, yet again by the lame stream media, that there is an epidemic of crime against black people in this country. But is there really a race war, and if so, which side is actually waging it?

MORT's meanderings

President Barack Hussein Obama, Vice-President Joe Biden and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel should all burn in Hell for disrespecting the service of U. S. Army Major General Harold Greene, recently killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan.  All three of them are traitors.
According to news reports, none of these three officials were in attendance at the recent interment service for Major General Greene at Arlington National Cemetery.  I want to know precisely what each of them was doing that was so much more damned important than honoring this Commanding General who was killed while serving on the battle field in Afghanistan?
In addition to blatantly displaying their disrespect for our Military, each of these 'men-in-name-only', individually displayed their personal cowardice by failing to attend the ceremony and face the public in view of their disgusting, anti-U.S. Military attitudes.
Also missing, was a fourth miscreant - Secretary of State John F. Kerry.  Because of his documented piss-poor record of questionable service during his four months spent in Viet Nam and his litany of traitorous behavior since, his presence would have only added to the insult and dishonor being shown to a fallen hero.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing the President and his top appointees can say or do that will ameliorate the intentional, egregious insult heaped upon Major General Harold Greene, his family and every single man and woman who volunteered and currently serve in the Armed Forces of the United States of America.   Worse yet if that is possible, this President and his three co-haters have intentionally and egregiously insulted and dishonored every veteran and every single dead American who lies beneath a marble marker in that vast Arlington National Cemetery.
It is my solemn prayer that Obama, Biden, Hagel and Kerry never know a moment's peace in their souls, as long as they live.  And after that, the Keeper of Records in Hell can take over.

Is Mexico Friend or Foe?

As a neighbor just to our south and a very important trading partner, some have said that instead of being our faithful friend, they act more like our enemy.

Over the years, I have spent many a vacation at some of the many vacation spots that Mexico has to offer. They have beautiful beaches, luxurious hotels, and generally friendly people, but the actions of it's government towards the United States leaves a lot to be desired.

For years now, we have had a steady influx of “illegals” crossing our borders without proper papers. Where has the Mexican government been to help stop the flow of “illegals” coming into our country from Mexico? It seems like the Mexican government is in collusion with many of the poor and poorly educated Mexican citizens. It's almost like they have been exporting their social problems to our country and then complain that we complain about the people violating our immigration laws. It has been estimated that between 12 – 15 million Mexican nationals have taken up residence in our country over the past 30 years. Besides the Mexicans coming in over our borders, there have been millions more of other people from other countries who have used Mexico as a “way station” to enter our country illegally.

It is ironic that Mexico, which has a very strict immigration policy for foreign people trying to take up residence in Mexico without papers, would turn a blind eye or even encourage their own people and people of other countries, to violate our “lax” immigration laws.

Just recently, we've had an avalanche of illegals pouring into our country from other Central American countries, namely Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, who have made the arduous trip through Mexico practically unimpeded (a journey of approx. 1,500 miles from Mexico's southern border). The question arises, how could the 60,000 – 100,000 people go through Mexico without the knowledge of the Mexican authorities? We all know that corruption is rampant in Mexico, but that doesn't seem to motivate the Mexican government to stop this flow of low educated, poor, sometimes unhealthy children and gang members from moving through Mexico to our border. Their indifference, about this matter, is a crime in and of itself.

Additionally, the Mexican authorities have been holding an American Marine veteran in custody under dubious circumstances and charges since last March. Besides Mexico not doing much to free our citizen soldier, they have been making him jump through hoops to try to get justice by the Mexican court system. Is that how a “friend” is supposed to act? Unfortunately, or leaders, Obama and Kerry have not exerted their influence to get him released. Shame on them.

So, my conclusion is that with friends like Mexico, we don't need enemies, and I will put off any future travel to Mexico until they act like a friend of the United States like any friendly country should act. They, for the reasons listed above, are not a friend and, therefore, should be considered a foe,

Tradition v. Trendy Political Correctness

Although in truth, the forces of Yin-Yang do not depict good and evil. My
concept is to describe them as the difference between Traditionalism (Yin)
and Trendy Political Correctness (Yang).

There is a lot of bad in the world today and much can be attributed to how
and what people interpret to be their values.

Morality, family structure, ethics, decency, humility and honesty have taken
a beating, caused by overwhelming the Yin with the Yang against each other.
It has a lot to do with politics, and with a multitude of special interest groups
holding key positions of influence, lobbying politicians for favorable legislation
to enhance their enterprises, who also have special interests, and a need for
backers to finance their perpetual re-election bids. This super cedes any
interest benefiting their constituents.

Yin-Yang disparity started long ago in the Garden of Eden, that continues
today, victimizing the vulnerable by modern day snakes, dispensing venom
upon them, with smut, drugs and freebie bribes to control their souls under
the pretense of concern for them.

University professors who were marinated in the radical juices of the sixties,
and many public school NEA teachers are responsible for the clueless who
appear staring into the headlights of questioners, when interviewed by "Man
in the Street" segments, occasionally aired by some television programs.
After sacrificing to meet expensive tuition and student loans, many adult
children are living in their parents basement. Not because jobs are not
available, but because they lack the initiative their parents had to get ahead,
 expecting everything to be handed to them.

Mean while, they need their recreation consisting of hanging out in the local
watering hole getting soused and smoking a joint while contemplating their
next tattoo, texting friends while listening to rappers rhyming profanity.
How heart breaking for a parent to see their pride and joy end up in the jug
on a DUI or busted for possession, especially if it's a mug shot of their little
princess they had so many high hopes for.

Multi-fathered fatherless families are a tragedy, but unwed parents, or two
same gender cohabitants is now considered trendy. It is politically incorrect to
criticize or comment negatively against any of it because it carries the label
of racism and bigotry. Attempt to criticize abortionists because of your
Christian pro life belief and be accused of waging war against women.
The tradition of motherhood with husband has been time honored; not
 neo-trendy unions that dishonor womanhood and fatherhood.

Prepare to get hammered by "Bathhouse Brides" if you utter disdain about
 same sex marriage, wrongly labeled being homophobic, because disdain
 has nothing to do with fear.

The big industrial complex, entertainment and marketing tycoons run the
 country with high paid lobbyists bent on breaking the back of tradition for
 new avenues of profit by prompting our elected officials to bend the odds
 in favor of Yang against Yin. The hope and change they voted for, didn't
bargain for.

MORT's meanderings

         You can't expect a Community
         Organizer to change his spots.

After six plus years of listening to Obama's slick talk, him saying one thing and then doing precisely the opposite, we are dead certain of one thing - he's not going to change.  He couldn't change even if he wanted to.  It simply ain't not possible.
There's no 'there' there.  He is a Saul Alinksy ideologue - he was raised to feel downtrodden , discriminated against and ashamed of everything that his Father perceived as wrong with the Western world that had  'colonized' and victimized all the poor people on Earth.  He dedicated himself to vindicating his lunatic Father's whim.
Early in his life, he was recognized as a 'comer' in the shadow world of Socialism.  Once selected, a series of ideologue manipulators began to groom him for future stardom as a revolutionary.  He was imbued with an unprecedented degree of arrogance, resulting from the path that was always smoothed in front of him - causing him to think that he was really something special.  It was the genesis of his self-delusion.  The die was cast.
Combine that with his advanced case of Narcissism (just a wild guess on my part) and you have a candidate for the presidency, with absolutely no practical experience at managing anything except tying his shoes.  But, someone with a perpetual hard-on for getting even with the United States of America for being so damned successful and getting even with it's people for being so genius as to have stayed free under The Constitution, since its founding. He despises our Constitution with his entire being.
So, based upon his smooth oratory, his coffee-colored skin and his clean look (thanks, Joe Biden) and his promises of fundamentally changing America - code for putting the unions and the something-for-nothing crowd first  in line for redistribution of other people's wealth - he was elected President.  There's no cure for the stupidity of some clueless, careless, something-for-nothing voters.  
We see where that landed us - at death's door.  He has to go.  He won't go of his own volition, it'll take some brave hearts in the Congress to impeach him.  Whether it will be done in time to save our nation - we'll have to wait and see.

Leave No Soldier Behind

That’s the spin the Obama Administration is using to justify their prisoner swap of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and five Taliban terrorists. It’s true that the “unwritten law” of the U.S. Armed Forces is that you never, within reason, leave a fellow soldier, Marine, airman, or sailor behind on the battlefield, whether alive or dead.

The case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is different in so far as he has been classified as a deserter from his platoon, a major breach of military conduct. Normally, prisoner swaps occur after the hostilities have ended and one side has been defeated. Neither of these things happened in this case. This swap occurred while the hostilities are still in progress. The Taliban, a stateless group of terrorists, are still at war with us and want to kill us at any chance they get. It has been a public relations disaster for Obama and his Administration, which was brought by their own actions, the Republicans and right-wingers had nothing to do with it.

To compound the insult and injury to the American people, Obama and his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice (of Benghazi fame) have been claiming that Sgt. Bergdahl served “honorably with distinction” and therefore was entitled to be swapped for those Taliban criminals. Are they for real?

Who got the better of this deal? Most observers and retired military officers and enlisted personnel say, almost unanimously, that this was not in the best interests of the U.S. The consensus is that those “hardened war criminals” will return to the fray and continue to inflict harm on us and our allies unless we can take them out sometime in the future.

Can you imagine, that during WWll, if we had in our possession Goering, Goebbels, and Eichmann, that we would have swapped those Nazi war criminals for a U.S. soldier who had deserted his platoon? Do you think we would have done that deal? Of course not, it would’ve been out of the question, but Obama thought that this was the humane thing to do, in this case, and that he’d be looked upon favorably by the public, but it has backfired on him big time, as well as it should have. Another thought has been bandied about that Obama did this to help him fulfill his promise to close down Gitmo and now with the worst of the worst terrorists no longer housed at Gitmo, it should be closed for good. Another miscalculation on Obama’s part, in my estimation.

It seems that every other week, a new scandal, involving the Obama Administration comes to light. If that doesn’t show the inexperience, naivete, and arrogance of our Commander in Chief, nothing else will, unless you are one of the Obama Zombies who can’t see that the “Emperor has no clothes”.

The tenet of “leave no soldier behind” is a worthy goal, but it should be done with common sense and with not a hint of politics involved. Shame on Obama, he has reached a new low.

The previous century fostered the emergence of tyrants such as Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin,
who by their method to raise their countries to dominance, instead did great damage to them,
the people and the world.

It is beyond my comprehension that a pseudo benign community organizer can also destroy
a country, damaging it with a reverse methodology from the tyrants, by dismantling everything
that has made us an exceptional nation. Apologizing to the world for our position as the
eminent power that works to right wrongs.

The differential between him and the tyrants; he is more dangerous to our country, because
his ideology exposes venerability to future sleeping tyrants, waiting to take advantage
of his naivety, as witnessing the extension of Vladimir Putin's claws into Ukraine.

Two different routes taken, ending at the same final destination.

Promoting his misguided agendas, President Barack Obama has and is logging thousands
of miles, flying all over the world on Air Force One, giving a warped vision of his America,
earning him unprecedented ' Frequent Liar Miles'.

Because of limited space determined by editors of opinion pages, I can list only a few of
the erroneous statements made by this darling of the media. His lies can fill pages, not
just a couple of columns.

"There is not a smidgen of corruption in the IRS. If you like your health care plan, you can
keep it period! The NSA is not abusing its power. We got back every dime we used to rescue
the financial system. The Benghazi violence was caused by an online video, but I said it was
a terrorist attack from the beginning. I've done more for Israel's security than any president
ever." If you do a google or yahoo search under, '' there are at least a
hundred more of his whoppers.

Maybe now we will begin to realize who this man is whom we gave eight years to, for our
hopes and dreams.

Defining Deviancy Down - Part 2

The late Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan coined that phrase back in the 1990's. It went something like this (I paraphrase) - over the past generation or so, the amount of deviant behavior in American society has increased so much so that conduct previously stigmatized as bad for society, is now looked upon as being normal.

Much of this behavior has come about by people trying to do good, but end up doing damage to society with their good intentions. The principle of “unintended consequences” seems to have happened to our society, and to many, not for the better.

Yes, there is a “culture war” going on in our country today and it seems like the “bad guys” are winning the war. Let's take a look at what is happening in our country today.

There was a time that having a baby out-of-wedlock was considered a big “no-no” and shouldn't be praised or subsidized by society. Today, the birth rate of single mothers is approx. 40% (73% in the black community). Ever since the advent of the “War on Poverty”, under then Pres. Lyndon Johnson, the “illegitimate” birth rate has skyrocketed. The government, while attempting to do good by financially helping single mothers, has exacerbated the problem by basing their aid on the absence of a father in the home. Voila, no husband, no father, which equals more crime (as the kids grow up without a father) and more government dependence and handouts.

Another area where we have “defined deviancy down” is in our use of drugs for recreational purposes. It used to be frowned upon, as drug use was mostly confined to jazz musicians and hippie types. Now drug use, which is still mostly illegal, is looked up, in some circles, as being “chic” and the “in thing” (even Pres. Obama has admitted to drug use in the past). Today, we see a concerted campaign, by some, to legalize marijuana, not only for medicinal purposes, but for recreational use as well. Some states have already legalized it with many more soon to follow. Most predict that legalization of all drugs will happen sometime in the near future. That is “defining deviancy down”.

Another area where we have seen us “defining deviancy down” is the legitimizing gay marriage and the normalization of deviant sexual practices and behavior. The advocates of gay marriage are pushing for acceptance in order to have society legitimatize their sexual behavior. Homosexuality has been around since the dawn of time, but the idea of same-sex marriage has not taken hold until the last decade or so. Advocates of gay marriage contend that the gay lifestyle should be looked upon as a normal alternative to a heterosexual lifestyle. Even though the gay population numbers only around 3%, they have been successful in winning the hearts and minds of the media, academia, and left-leaning politicians and unelected liberal judges around the country, who then, in turn, push the gay agenda of acceptance of their lifestyle. Once you unlock the door to the common sense of natural, traditional marriage, there really is no end to the aberrant forms of sexual preferences that will then be suing to demand marriage rights. And, if marriage can mean anything, then marriage means nothing.

Yes, Daniel Patrick Moynihan was prescient back in the 1990's when he warned us that we were “defining deviancy down”, and that it would someday come back to bite us in the butt big time. That time might just be here now.
