“So teach us to number our days, that we may get a heart of wisdom.”
"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." — Sir Winston Churchill
2012 has arrived, just as a surprise present left on the middle of the road. But unlike that inert, imaginary present, ‘we’ are inside that box... WE as in we are able to try to influence what kind of surprise we want to find, as we open it day by day in the new year 2012, remembering that life is a choice between right and wrong, evil and goodness and the nuances are found not between each other, but in each of them.
A part of America is awake, intent and organized. The other part is comfortably going through life, but about to fall off their hammock unless they wake up before the winds of winter warm up from closeness to hell and the light of a new day will be shattered by the darkness of a scary, long night.
Back in 2008, Americans elected out of spite and revenge a new president and administration. The need for change was indispensable. The options were impossible. The end result has been pernicious.
The Left vs Us
It seems as if though the only ones who feel the ‘need’ to get organized are the left, with NCAAP, the Occupy movements, and so on.
The American people elected a pure leftist leadership to take the reins of power and without losing a beat they have been rabidly implementing their agenda in a silent, extremely effective and yet conspicuous way. With legitimate power, American leftists, with Barack Hussein Obama at the helm, also count on other very effective characters such as George Soros, Warren Buffet, who despite the proven catastrophic failure of socialism and communism around the globe, are supporting and encouraging the rise of the Left and their broken system in America in this twenty first century.
In the sixties they had already taken to the streets under the banners of Black Panthers (originally, the Black Panthers for Self-Defense,) and SDS (Students for a Democratic Society,) whose initial mission was not a radical one, but rather a humane one of community outreach.
Later on, American History sees their first “suit and tie” progressive activists led among others by Hillary Clinton, then former intern by her hero, Saul Alinsky, and currently America’s Secretary of State. Clinton, in her commencement speech at Wellesley, said: “We’re not interested in social reconstruction; it’s human reconstruction..."
The deconstruction of America has been very well orchestrated by progressive theorists who have planned to the detail the new Marxist-economic-psychological framework.
Among the initially targeted America’s pillars has been the American Family, which was perceived by them as authoritarian. They even realized multiple studies which concluded that the authoritarian, religious, conservative American family showed pre-fascist symptoms and was perceived as the locus of evil in modern America.
What begun with Clinton et al, has been successfully continued by the Obama Administration which without further ado removed the mention of “Mother” or “Father” in our official forms, replacing them with “Parent One” and “Parent Two.” Thus began the official dismantlement of America’s fundamental pillar, the end of the American family as the Founding Fathers had expected it to continue.
Religion is also another of the Left’s victims. G-d is not a beloved entity among them, because their quest for libertine freedom cannot be stopped by inconvenient rules. Slowly and surely, they have overstepped every morale barrier and maybe only causing death is considered by them something unacceptable and wrong. Another last element worth noting is that the New Left has a penchant to using violence as their means of communicating and achieving their goals. So much for peace and the search of good will. Just as spoiled, immature kids, if they don’t have it their way and soon, then bullying might work. Why not?
How many of Americans who have voted for Obama are aware of this conspiracy by the progressives, who have been working behind the scenes, on the sides and at the front, while back home everyone was peacefully sleeping.
Not Populism, but Leftist Elitism
Whoever thought that Obama and Clinton represent a populist movement, they are in for a big disappointment because, on the contrary, these are highly educated progressive liberal leaders. As a matter of fact, Hillary Clinton came to national attention as the first student ever to give the commencement address for her own class at her alma mater, the prestigious Wellesley College.
While the left may “give the impression” that they worry for the masses, they are simply using them to get to their goal of achieving a new kind of power for a smaller group, represented by self-aggrandisement and tyranny accompanying greater business success for those few ones.
A blatant example of the above, is how they completely missed the point with the adoption of Spanish as second language throughout America, to make the Latin immigrants feel better -and by doing so, they robbed them of their American dream, which truly should have meant that by learning English as a born national, they could have had, among other benefits, more access to the best American universities. Everyone could have benefited from such a measure -except the Left.
The importance of a language cannot be emotional. One needs to consider how many Nobel Prize winners in Chemistry, Physics, Medicine, Economics, etc. does that language offer. Can those languages offer a potentially good education for your children? And so on.
Useless Political Parties
In this election year, a deep introspection is needed. Americans need to decide if they are going to allow the fate of this glorious country, be taken over by the enemies of the Republic. And, if they decide against continue to allow that, a thorough and imminent organization is needed. Military men and politicians alike, from Patton to Churchill, knew that they had to plan for the worst and hope for the best.
This year, to crown it all, American conservatives must acknowledge that little can be expected from either of their political parties, whether it is the GOP or the Tea Party.
GOP has become the high-end RINO production factory, whose end product are borderline democrats by will or by need (personal business need, to be precise.)
The Tea Party had a smashing entrance, attracting the limelight for the most to uneducated, complaining and outspoken conservative and anti-Obama masses. The current dire situation of the Tea Party, its lack of national leadership and organization, combined with their lack of vision, have in the end betrayed the light of hope some perceived at their birth -because instead of realizing their weaknesses and trying to get crash courses to catch up with the actual needs of leadership, they have mostly concentrated in fundraising campaigns, and have not shown any will of political resistance to the current regime, no moral strength and no will but a total inability to lead in the intellectual and political struggle.
“Executive Orders (EOs) are legally binding orders given by the President, acting as the head of the Executive Branch, to Federal Administrative Agencies. Executive Orders are generally used to direct federal agencies and officials in their execution of congressionally established laws or policies. However, in many instances they have been used to guide agencies in directions contrary to congressional intent.
.... Executive Orders are controversial because they allow the President to make major decisions, even law, without the consent of Congress. This, of course, runs against the general logic of the Constitution -- that no one should have power to act unilaterally. Nevertheless, Congress often gives the President considerable leeway in implementing and administering federal law and programs.”
Since the beginning, this American President has abused Executive Orders with total impunity, repeatedly violating the Constitution and has purposefully overextended his powers. He has signed 39 executive orders in 2009, 35 in 2010 and 34 in 2011 (only on December 19, 2011, he signed three on the same day.)
Associated Press via the Chicago Tribune, publishes that everything seems to indicate that in his fourth-year the president may feel he no longer need for Congress to promote his agenda and that may benefit his re-election campaign, especially if lawmakers accomplish little in 2012...
Sure enough, two days ago, blatantly over passing Congress, the President, in an unapologetic move, appointed Richard Cordray, a former attorney general of Ohio, to be the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Obama went above and beyond by squeezing in his appointment during a break between rapid Senate sessions this week, an unusual move that the GOP called an arrogant power grab -but, once more, in the end they have done nothing to stop this abuse.
Throughout our history, on many opportunities, American conservatives have allowed the Left to take them hostage. They still seem willing to have their hands tied -they could argue that if they reject the actions of larger government they may appear to be turning on the interests of the masses.
As we begin 2012, the moment has come for Americans to open their eyes and realize that Executive Orders are supposed to be used sparingly by acting presidents. But that’s not the case with the current president who has given 118 executive orders in three years. One must add, that under the watchful, impassive eye of the people’s representatives, this President has not only violated the Constitution but is using Executive Orders as his instruments to arbitrary power.
As George Washington once said: “Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused to licentiousness.”
What permeates here is that an all-powerful state is being set up to coordinate the functioning of our society at the national and at the global level -when the United Nations is called in, by our own Administration, to intervene in our national affairs.
Obama vs America with Impunity
Progressive liberal Americans under Clinton, Obama, Holder, et al, brought into the White House a very specific agenda to change America from the ground. Almost all of us can remember the undeniable spiritual connotation in the 2008 Obama campaign -and now, in retrospect, we can realize what his “spirituality” was about: Obama’s obvious and conspicuous association with Islam.
While the successful demolition of America belongs to the leftist, liberal progressives, it couldn’t have been made possible, had they not counted with a great partner: the indifferent, impassive, inactive and selfish members of the American conservative movement.
Dire Crisis in American Leadership
In the chaotic situation where America is, the nation’s moral and political requirements demand strong leadership to stop the brutal free fall and begin recuperating from the multi-trillion dollar bankruptcy, crippling unemployment numbers, an ever deteriorating economy, stagnating some NASA activities, massively facilitating Muslim immigration and so much more.
But that kind of leadership must come from the heart of the American people who must react when they see their president once again, for the nth time overstepping his powers and violating the Constitution.
If those who are supposed to defend the Constitution, are the ones violating it, America expects from their people to put pressure on their representatives -not with letters or calls, but with their presence, everywhere around the country... making sure everyone understands there is so much abuse and violation of their Constitution that We The People can take.
So, it befalls the American people to accept the challenge and prepare for the worst, because in the end there is no one there looking after America or even less after the American people. Want proof? Look at the National Debt Clock... We are at over 15 trillion dollars in National Debt and counting. Now, look at your wallets... everyday you buy less for more. Does it look that there is anyone out there looking after you? No.
Only one thing is sure in this beginning of 2012: The incredible lack of American Leadership to protect American interests at large. Socialism and Communism are proven political systems that have only brought to the nations that practiced them, chaos and corruption, deterioration and the denigration of the human condition.
2012 is going to be the election in the History of America that will officially mark the make or break of America, the Superpower of the World.
And, it’s up to the American people to stand up to the task, as Americans have no leader to defend the country or the people.
America the Beautiful: The beauty sleep is over. It’s time to remind everyone that the American Dream belongs to you!
It’s 2012 and it’s time to wake up.
