David Limbaugh writes the definitive 2012 handbook on Obama.
(Page 3 of 4)
Creating fraudulent voters isn’t all The Great Destroyer is about. Without the slightest sense of irony, the State Department is trying to say — seriously — that constitutional decisions in America about the right to gay marriage are in fact not constitutional at all but, as Limbaugh notes, “tantamount to a human rights violation.” So if your state votes to refuse the legalization of gay marriage — which has in fact happened repeatedly in states across the country — America is what? Iran? Where being gay can get you executed?
Limbaugh lasers in as well here on the U.S. decision to give some $600 million to Palestinians every year, with $225 million “funneled directly to the Palestinian Authority in violation of U.S. law.” Some of these funds were then used by the PA “to pay salaries to some 5,500 Palestinian terrorist prisoners in Israeli jails, some of whom murdered Americans.”
But if the War on America were not itself enough, there’s…
• The War on Business: This section of the book is particularly illustrative of the by-now well-established Obama Method of Operation: say one centrist sounding thing, then do its far-Left opposite.
Here we find Obama proclaiming himself a “fierce advocate of the free market.”
Uh-oh is right. The “fierce advocate of free markets” has shown a scale-tilting glee in his favoritism towards unions (making them Client Number One during the GM/Chrysler takeovers). Well aside from the get-in-the-White House-gates-anytime pass enjoyed by union leaders, there’s all the fireworks resulting from one explosion of anti-free market capitalism after another. One particularly odious affair was the Boeing business — “business” here defined as in trying to give one of America’s best known job creators the business, not as in respecting that business. Specifically the idea was to use the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to stop the company from building a plant in Charleston, South Carolina, because the resulting jobs would be — horrors! — non-union. So much for the word “free” in the phrase “free market.”
Then there was what Limbaugh calls “The Card Check Ambush.” This jewel revolved around the failure of Congressional Democrats to pass the humorously named “Employee Free Choice Act” which, as Limbaugh points out, is “an Orwellian euphemism for a law (also called card check) that would intimidate workers into joining unions by eliminating secret ballot voting for unionization.” The Obama solution? What else? Use the NLRB to do the same thing by allowing “ambush” elections — elections that would “stack the deck in votes on union membership by giving employers only ten days to make their case to employees against forming a union.”
And so on. And on.
Limbaugh zeroes in on the obvious, citing Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria as reporting that he, Zakaria, had “interviewed numerous business leaders, most of whom had voted for Obama, and that every one of them believe he is ‘at his core, anti-business.’” Then there’s real estate and publishing mogul (New York Daily News and US News & World Report) Mort Zuckerman (who, if memory serves, is a Democrat) saying that he detects in the Obama White House a “hostility to the very kinds of (business) culture that have made this the great country that it is and was. I think we have to find some way of dealing with that or else we will do great damage to this country with a public policy that could ruin everything.”
A public policy that could ruin everything.
Think of that. After 225 years of being a constitutional Republic, we are living through a public policy deliberately conducted by a President of the United States “that could ruin everything.”
Certainly ruination seems to be the objective when considering not oil (which has its own detailed chapter) but…
• The War on Other Energy Sources: No one seemed to pay any attention in 2008 when, somewhere along the campaign trail, Senator Obama announced that he had every intention of bankrupting the coal industry. They are now. Instead of a “use everything” strategy — oil, coal, nuclear, solar, wind and anything and everything else necessary to the task— Obama has used the power of the federal government to hammer the coal industry, exactly as promised.
That hammer is the Environmental Protection Agency, and it is being used relentlessly to play favorites — with coal decidedly not only not a favorite but on the receiving end of outright hostility. While the 2012 West Virginia primary took place long after Limbaugh’s book was hitting the presses, there is no accident that a prison inmate — a prison inmate! — captured over 40% of the vote challenging Obama. Nor is there any accident in the similarly recent explosive political news that Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, and Rep. Nick Rahall have quite publicly announced they will boycott the Democrats’ National Convention — where they would be placed in the position as delegates of re-nominating President Obama.
