Yep, it’s just as we figured: Obama isn’t wasting any time in implementing his far-Left agenda. The idea that he will govern as a centrist is simply idiotic, and intended only to persuade those who don’t know Obama’s background and track record to sit still while Obama implements the most far-Left agenda of any President in history. Still two months away from actually becoming the President, and without filling his cabinet, the Obamessiah has already taken aim at a number of Bush policies.
As promised, Obama has developed a list of about 200 policies that he feels Bush implemented for ‘political’ reasons, one of which is embryonic stem cells. Remember, Bush signed an order that allowed experimentation on those lines of stem cells that already existed, but prevented any new lines from being developed. Also recall that, because of that policy, researchers have now found ways to create pluripotent stem cells out of adult non-embryonic cells, so there is absolutely no reason for anyone to pursue the controversial embryonic stem cell harvesting. He’s going to do it anyway. For Obama, it’s all abortion, all the time, for any reason. I’m sure it won’t be long until he actually hammers the abortion thing, too – that was his promise to Planned Parenthood, after all.
US President-elect Barack Obama has not given a commitment to go ahead with plans to build part of a US missile defence system in Poland, an aide says.
He was speaking after Polish President Lech Kaczynski’s office said a pledge had been made during a phone conversation between the two men.
But Mr Obama’s foreign policy adviser, Denis McDonough, denied this.
Russia opposes the US scheme and has announced plans to deploy missiles on Poland’s border as a counter-measure.
Eight years ago the Butcher of Baghdad was ruling Iraq.
The Taliban was in control of Afghanistan.
Libya was working on weapons of mass destruction.
Al-Qaeda was playing offense.
Today… The Iraqi government is in control of 13 of 18 provinces.
Today… Iraqi and US Casualties are at record lows.
Afghanistan and Iraq are fledgling democracies.
Al-Qaeda’s leadership has been decimated and the terrorists are on the run.
The Taliban is out of power.
But, that could all change with the radical in the White House. Al-Qaeda is already celebrating the Obama win. Obama has promised to withdraw troops from Iraq. Afghanistan is struggling with the Taliban again. Pakistan is unstable. Iran is developing nukes.
It’s no secret that Obama has been against the war all along – one of his main campaign promises was to get us out of Iraq ASAP no matter the cost. The war is, by all accounts, won…all that’s left is the mopping up. But, if Obama pulls us out before Iraq is truly ready to stand on its own, it will descend into chaos and create a defeat where victory once existed.
Also, I feel I should point out that Obama’s unwillingness to speak and act strongly is exceedingly dangerous for another reason. If neither Russia nor Iran feel threatened by a President Obama, they will feel similarly emboldened to implement their conquest goals. Israel, too, will feel even more isolated than they already are, and will be much more likely to conduct a pre-emptive strike of some kind. Obama’s known positions of weakness will only make this world more dangerous, and we are already seeing the effects of that weakness.
Media Bias For Obama
The Washington Post admits it:
Stories and photos about Obama in the news pages outnumbered those devoted to McCain. Post reporters, photographers and editors — like most of the national news media — found the candidacy of Obama, the first African American major-party nominee, more newsworthy and historic. Journalists love the new; McCain, 25 years older than Obama, was already well known and had more scars from his longer career in politics.
…One gaping hole in coverage involved Joe Biden, Obama’s running mate. When Gov. Sarah Palin was nominated for vice president, reporters were booking the next flight to Alaska. Some readers thought The Post went over Palin with a fine-tooth comb and neglected Biden. They are right; it was a serious omission.
Chris ‘tingle-up-my-leg’ Matthews makes it a public pronouncement:
More incidents of bias can be found at the link above. The point is: they’re now admitting it openly. So, what does this do to their credibility? The only realistic solution is for millions of Americans to cancel their subscriptions to these newspapers and magazines, and to stop watching these channels and shows. It has now been demonstrated beyond doubt that the mainstream media has voluntarily refused to do its job — reporting of facts and news — instead succumbing to their own personal biases and desires. When that happens, they become useless to the American public. Ditch ’em, and get your real news at places where it can be trusted (like here!).
Change In More Ways Than One
The official Obama website, Change.gov, has already been busted for doing the same sort of fact-scrubbing that his campaign conducted. Gateway Pundit has the screenshots to prove it:
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year.
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.
Of course, Change.gov did not mention their changes.
For all of these important issues and many more to come…Told You So!
Now, the important thing is to pay attention to those of us who correctly predicted what an Obama presidency would look like. That’s the only way to fix what the Obamessiah is about to break.
There’s my two cents.
