The Roots of Obama's Rage

by Colonel Bob Pappas, USMC, Retired

The thesis of Denish D’Sousa’s book, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” is that Obama is fundamentally anti-colonial, the United States of America is colonial in its international relationships, i.e. Africa (most of it by guilt through association with European colonial empires), Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Iraq, Afghanistan, and therefore he (Obama), has to “undo the damage” first by apologizing, then by spreading the wealth to countries that the U.S. has ostensibly exploited.

At home, Obama is fundamentally socialist in his approach while touting free market’s, but signing legislation and issuing Executive Orders that are intended to fundamentally transform the U.S. from a market economy to a government run economy; and, he is succeeding. Why, if otherwise did he nationalize the car companies, bail out banks in exchange for major ownership stakes, and cram “so called,” health care reform down the throats of an unwilling populace, all the while claiming that this last was what the American people want.

So, here is a President who is determined to “totally change America” “totally change the economic system,” and here’s one that is not often remembered, “totally change the world.” If he collapses the U.S. economy he will succeed at all three objectives. Unfortunately, should Obama succeed it will be a world that is infinitely worse off than at any time in history. It is notable that no other U.S. President in history has worked so intensely to destroy his own country than Barack Hussein Obama.

One of the Congress’ responsibilities as a separate branch of government is to provide funding ot run the government on the one hand, and to advise and consent to the President’s actions, on the other.

If the Republicans want to do something worthwhile, they will investigate the underlying causes of the economic collapse of ’08, which although complex is not too hard to understand if one devotes even a modicum of thought and analysis to the issues.

The economic collapse did not just happen, succinctly put it was caused by a combination of government mandates which were intended to advance home ownership whether or not mortgages could be paid; banks that saw an opportunity to make huge profits by pushing loans to unqualified borrowers; Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s bundling those loans with performing loans then selling them to banks that used them as collateral to borrow money that could then be used to leverage stock transactions; totally out of control stock market speculation, day trading and borderline, as well as over-the-line illegal gaming of the market through insider trading activities; all timed so that speculation in the oil markets would drive gasoline prices to all time highs at precisely the same time that sub-prime mortgages were adjusting upward to normal interest rates.

The overwhelming increase in costs to millions of homeowners caused by gasoline prices and mortgage payments simultaneously doubling caused cascading defaults throughout the entire financial system.

Voila! It all happened co-incidentally, at precisely the moment in the general election campaign to affect the outcome. Soros and Congressional Democrats could not have planned it better!

Further, the Congress should investigate the sources of the hundreds of millions of dollars of contributions to Obama’s campaign that were below the reporting threshold. Since Obama promised to be totally transparent, he should have no problem cooperating in an investigation into the sources of those contributions. We, the American people would like to know even if the contributions were supposedly legal.

Then, all the while working to reopen the nation for business by creating a healthy tax and labor environment, the Congress should rein in Obama’s patently un-Constitutional Executive Orders, for example, the proposed one/ones that would have the EPA issue regulations to effectively impose “Cap and Trade;” and thus drive the cost of heating, cooling and transportation through the roof in the name of controlling carbon emissions and by extension, global warming.

Republicans have an historic opportunity to set this nation back on the right path after having “blown it” leading up to the election of ’06. In fact if they fail the Republican Party will disappear into the ash heap and another more conservative party that is aligned with the majority of Americans will emerge to replace it forever.

Message for the Congress: It’s time to serve the American people, not enact legislation that effectively makes the American people serve the government.

Incidentally, as for the title, America will win.

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

I agree, it is time, long past time, our government listens to we the people. What we saw from the many Townhall meetings shocked me. To see how elected officials treated the people that pay their salaries etc. should have left everyone wide awake as to what has happened and how much we need to fight back for our country.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.
