Predictions for the New Obama "Presidency"

My Predictions for the New Obama "Presidency"

by Kit Lange

Kit Lange is an Air Force veteran and military writer who specializes in investigating murder cases stemming from actions in combat. Her work was used as evidence in the Lt. Ilario Pantano case, and has been quoted extensively in other news publications for other cases. In 2005, she co-wrote a 10-part series disproving war crime allegations against an elite Army unit.

Now that America has shown us all that affirmative action even works in politics, I've compiled a list of things that you can probably expect to happen. These predictions are 80% gleaned from information all of us have access to, and 15% gut instinct based on many years of research, historical study, and being glued to current affairs. The other 5% is just anger at my countrymen's stupidity--I admit it.

- Websites and mass emails offering "free grants," courtesy of the government and "Obama's wealth redistribution." Actually, this one's a freebie, because I have an email with a date and timestamp of literally minutes after Obama was declared the winner, offering exactly that.

- Israel will understand this election was the end of any type of assistance, military or otherwise, from the U.S., and will stop holding back their defense at the request of the American administration. Look for a first strike on Iran soon, as well as increased activity by the Israeli military in general. Israel is on her own now, and God help us all because of it.

- Look for Iranian retaliation--against American targets. That goes doubly for other terrorist organizations. We just elected a man with the full endorsement of every major terrorist group in the world as leader of the free world. It's the political equivalent of hiring a child molester to babysit your kids while you leave for the weekend. Not only is HE going to have fun with your child, but he'll probably sit and watch while his friends come over and do it too.

- Look for far-left justices appointed to the Supreme Court, effectively tying up the entire government in a trifecta of liberal humanism, the buzzwords of which remain empty platitudes like "hope and change," and the ultimate goal of which is socialism--and soon, sharia law.

- Military cases of troops being tried and convicted for killing the enemy in combat will continue to rise--and the conviction/plea-bargain rate will stay at nearly 100%, as the government seeks to use the best men and women this country has to offer as sacrificial lambs on the altar of global appeasement. Those brave and honorable men who currently reside in prison cells across the country, stripped of their rank, their careers, families, and their good name, will not taste free air again for many years. Their sacrifices and their stories will be forgotten by the general public, remembered only by those of us who continue to fight for them.

- Look for the slow but steady erosion of rights you have enjoyed for your entire lives--all the while being told it's "for your own good."

Restrictions on gun ownership, home schooling, encouraged dependence on the ever-growing federal government. More nanny-state provisions will be put into place to protect the "disadvantaged" and the "poor," (read: lazy, uneducated, unwilling to better themselves) even while groups like the unborn, the mentally handicapped, elderly, and terminally ill are slowly pushed toward euthanasia. Of course, this will be done with feel-good phrases like "death with dignity," "not wanting to be a burden," and "merciful release from suffering," all of which ignore the basic fact that we are killing people without their consent for the "good of the people." Before you tell me I'm crazy, let's just remember that Barack Obama was the ONLY senator in the Illinois state senate to vote against providing medical care for babies who were inconsiderate enough to survive an abortion. Also, look for taxes to go up. Yes, they'll go up.

- You think the economy is bad now? Just wait. You'll have the most expensive "free" health care ever. Bread lines aren't just for Russians anymore.

We have traded experience for color, freedom for slavery--and the irony is that the average American sheep thinks their vote somehow righted an ancient wrong, somehow ENDED the specter of slavery and ushered in some beautiful era of liberty. In reality, we are about to be less free than you ever thought possible.

I watched the faces of those crowded into the mob (excuse the pun) in Chicago .. They stared at Obama like he was a god, an idol, a panacea to their every want and need. We have truly failed as a nation if we are at the point where we feel we must look to one man to take care of us all, to be our father figure and our sugar daddy. We have lost not only the "can-do" attitude of past generations, but the "MUST-do" attitude of our forefathers. We have allowed ourselves to become reduced from Patrick Henry's proud cry of "liberty or death" to the sniveling, whining idea that we are owed something. We have gone from being the honorable defenders of freedom, to being told we are the problem.

The eyes of Obama and McCain were also telling. McCain acted with class and grace in his concession speech , offering the most honorable response I've seen yet. I don't agree with all of McCain's positions, but it cannot be denied that the man has served his nation--at permanent and severe detriment to himself--for half a century. His eyes were clear and sincere, honest. His speech underlined the very reasons why, of the two men offered, he was hands down the best choice.

On the other hand, Obama's eyes were cold, calculating. His manner was smug and still carried the arrogance he has always had. His facial expression was one of barely disguised disdain for everything people like me believe in. His body language was smooth, polished--too much so. He talked of patriotism as though it is a value he is familiar with--and yet, his horrifying attitude toward the country he now leads is as well-documented as his friendships with those who seek its demise. He is charismatic to those who don't know what to look for, and he is inspiring to those who cannot or will not think for themselves. However, too many who voted for him are guilty of the most dangerous kind of hypocrisy.

You see, we are told daily that we must not see color, just mankind. (We are all family, you know--or so we're told.) And yet Barack Obama was handed the White House on a silver platter by a fawning media, a bevy of foreign donors (who, to this day and in violation of U.S. election laws, remain nameless and unaccounted for), and a populace who voted based on color instead of right and wrong--even in the face of the most damning evidence against a Presidential candidate in many years, perhaps ever.

It is said that the people receive the government they deserve. Sadly, I fear that's correct. We have become complacent, unwilling to see the writing on the wall, content to frolic in the warm water without bothering to notice that it's been getting hotter by the minute. We are two seconds from a rolling boil--and perhaps it is already too late.

So, liberals, enjoy your victory. Jump around. Have a party, file for your free grants. Scream "Gimme my handout!" and make fun of those of us who fought to make sure your "messiah" didn't get access to the most powerful position in the world. Just remember when it all comes crashing down: You own the White House, the Congress, and soon the Supreme Court. You have no one to blame but yourselves for the mess you just created.

As for me, I'm buying my handguns this week so I have an answer for those who will come try to take them.

Wild Thing's comment.......

I think Kit makes a lot of points that all of us here at Theodore's World have talked about. All of you have mentioned these things and concerns. Kit did an excellent job of putting it all together with additional thoughts as well.

"It is up to work together for progress and humanity so that our grandchildren, when they look back at us, can truly say that we not only preserved the flame of freedom, but cast its warmth and light further than those who came before us." Ronald Reagan - 1982

Refreshingly honest, too bad the message will fall on 640 Million stone deaf and dumb Uhmericans.
Invest in heavy metal!!!

So true. How many are going to end up filing bankruptcy this year not because they have too many bills, but their income didn't keep up with the bills and their tax base went way up?
It's a very scary time for all Americans who don't rely on the government for their daily living.
It's sad when you actually know people on welfare and food stamps who make more than you do and you work! How much sense does that make?

I hope Kit's predictions are wrong. I fear that many will be experienced. For at least two years the Democrats, and the most liberal among them, will have a basically obstacle free road to do what they want to. This will be a nationwide Katrina with all of us paying a price.

I am not an American sheep and I will not tow the line they have planned for us. I will however be buying more ammo this weekend and am buying another rifle for homeland security purposes.

"One infidel caliphate...under Allah...divided...without liberty and no justice for all?" This has to be a bad dream patriots!

Excellent predictions. Now, everyone repeat after me. Illegitimate and Affirmative-Action President Barack Hussein Obama.

Jack, and that is the kind of heavy metal I like too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at December 31, 2008 07:28 PM

Lynn, that really is shocking how that happens. HUGE things wrong with all of that. Thank you for sharing about othat, I just don't get how they got away with setting that stuff up like that so people would make more not doing anything.It is so wrong, totally wrong.

Posted by: Wild Thing at December 31, 2008 07:31 PM

Tom, I agree, I hope they are wrong too. I don't think all of them will happen, but some very well might. At least we have our eyes open and we will fight back and do what we can.

Good way to describe what Kit wrote...... "This will be a nationwide Katrina with all of us paying a price."

Glenn M. Cassel AMH1(AW) USN RET, yessss, and we have one thing they do not. God and right on our side. And our love for America they do not have at all.

cuchieddie, me too!!

Posted by: Wild Thing at December 31, 2008 07:40 PM

Darth, I would say it is the worst I have seen. But I am so glad Kit wrote this, I hope it wakes some people up. No one on here is asleep, but tons of people are and they need to know what 'could' happen and wake up.

Posted by: Wild Thing at December 31, 2008 07:43 PM

Les, oh my gosh, YIKES. Let's hope we never see that happen like what is seen in the image. Thanks Les.
