America Can Not Afford another Obama Presidency
By Nick Long

America cannot afford another Obama Presidency.
Not because of the millions of homeless in the streets across America.
Not even because of the wholesale looting of American wealth by multinational corporations on Obama watch.
Not because of the Trillions of dollars unaccounted for in Iraq.
Not because Obama has elected AL Qaeda terrorists to run Libya, the same terrorists they say took down the world Trade Towers.
Not of Operation Gun Walker: Fast & Furious which has seen American citizens murdered on the border with guns paid for by tax payers provided by Obama administration. (Not since the CIA scandal of Gun/Drug running into poor black neighborhoods that sparked the crack epidemic, have we seen the brutality waged with American made weaponry paid for by Americans, courtesy of Obama.
Not because America is guarding the poppy fields of Afghanistan.
Not because of the Trillions more lost in the bailouts (no one knows where this money went) representing poor management.
Not Because of the fact that those responsible for the misallocation of funds for Hurricane Katrina have gone unprosecuted, un-investigated by the Obama administration.
And not because of the millionaire congressman Corzine’s MF Global can’t locate any of the money in that scandal which has cost tax payers more of their future, heritage and money.
Not because Obama has failed to address the trillions of dollars for defense contractors lost in Afghanistan, Iraq.
Not because of the trillions of dollars to maintain bases overseas. Bases which are not being drawn down but attempts are being made by Obama’s administration to increase presence.
Not because of his Race (despite attempts by his administration to hype race inequality as a way of garnering support for his future election bid; Americans are far too wise to be fooled by this. Many African Americans have the blood of the American Founding Fathers flowing through their veins, just as much as any American) Obama was elected by White Americans along with Hispanic & Black Americans. Besides, all Americans know clearly, that the wealthy have been given carte blanche to tax all poor Americans. And poor has no color.
America simply Can Not Afford another Obama Presidency becuase of his danger to the republic. In a nut shell, the Obama Presidency has and will bankrupt America.
I am sure that you can add some emotional reasons to my many “Nots”. Your reasons are likley intellectual based, emotional but not racial.
Your reasons may be because of Obama’s policies and his inability to address the economic situation beyond throwing more money at military and benefiting the elite power base and destroying the very base support which elected him…the poor…the disenfranchised, the people desiring that which he campaigned on….”Change”.
His Presidency has allowed greedy men to criminally steal America’s future. This theft was & is unregulated, sanctioned and protected by a Black President who was elected on the back of his shared legacy with a people oppressed, ill-treated and marginalized. Obama has destroyed the pride of Kings “Message”, the potential of a dream long desired to be fulfilled and the legacy of American liberty.
Obama’s Achievements can be categorized as mis-achievements which foster corruption within the halls of power, maintaining & benefiting the Wealthy elite (those elite that have estates & homes outside of the US) structure, achievements which have proven disastrous for the working class Americans.
His presidency threatens to ruin the greatest country on earth (one with obvious flaws) but great nonetheless. His Presidency threatens to put us into WW3 with Israel dictating how fast we get there. Obama is uncle Tom and the master is Israel.
And as expected, Obama looks poised to run on race, the only thing he can run on in this election. This list is an attempt to analyze his professed achievements as provided by his administration. It is an attempt by an uneducated black writer with flaws to measure Obama not by his race but by the content of his character through his policies.
Obama Administration’s Mis-achievements (Thus Far)
1. Saved the collapse of the American automotive industry by making GM restructure before bailing them out, and putting incentive money to help the industry.
GM is falling apart globally. The Obama administration lost $14 billion in taxpayer funds from the bailout of the U.S. auto industry. According to a report from the president’s own National Economic Council since the government forced bailout of GM using tax payer funds, over 60% of those funds have been lost.
2. Shifted the focus of the war from Iraq to Afghanistan, and putting the emphasis on reducing terrorism where it should have been all along.
This looks great more to be just political rhetoric. Factually the United States has been urged, asked, by the council leaders of Iraq to leave. Muktada al-Sadr has demanded that the US leave Iraq or face consequences. And while US troops have been reduced, Obama has replaced US troops with private contractors which quadruples costs for tax payers.
3. Relaxed Anti-American tensions throughout the world.
Okay, stop laughing. We are trying to be objective here.
Obama has voted for more War, escalating tensions in Libya, the continent of Africa through AFRICOM. Like Ron Paul suggested years ago American foreign policy has increased Anti-Americanism multi-fold. Evidence of this fact one needs to merely make a record of the nations the US State Department has issued travel warnings, asking US citizens to leave, Israel, Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Libya; etc, all while fostering dissension within most of these respective countries.
4. Signed order to close the prisoner “torture camp” at Guantanamo Bay.
Guantanamo Bay is a torture camp that is still open. Investigations into the torture of innocent civilians women, children as young as 8 years of age have been reported but tapes given to congress have mysteriously vanished, tapes that showed the abuse, rape of children, in front of their parents, rape of men in front of their wives, rape of women in front of their grandmother etc. No prosecutions for those within the Bush administration. In fact Obama squashed all Guantanamo investigations, convictions and prosecutions. Similar torture camps have been reported yet no investigations have been conducted. In fact just yesterday a US detention camp specializing in abuse was discovered in Romania.
5. Has made the environment a national priority, and a primary source for job creation.
Obama has made a priority the protection of the lobbies that encourage the taxing of citizens for naturally occurring environmental paradigms. As for job creation; there are over 42 million Americans unemployed with 43 million on Food Stamps. (very conservative figures)
6. Has made education a national priority by putting emphasis and money behind new ideas like charter schools, but speaking directly to school children in telling them they have to do their part.
Their part (children) as it is becoming increasingly obvious, is assuming the debt incurred from a highly subsidized educational system that seeks high degree profitability. The Global Education Industrial Complex rivals that Housing Loan Fraud Scandal that has engulfed the World Economy heralding an inevitable collapse. Protests are growing Globally as a result for the ridiculously high tuition costs. Obama has not reduced intuition costs but rather has increased government dependency through debt.
7. Won the Nobel Peace Prize.
With the potential tribunals for war crimes threatening the Obama administration, for wide scale looting rapes, drone attacks and murder of brown/black skin civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan & Libya; the Nobel Peace Prize may be defining itself within the notable & historical legacies of other prominent so called “Peace Prize” winners, such as eugenics contributor John Harvey Kellogg and apartheid criminal F.W. De Klerk, of South Africa.
8. $789 billion economic stimulus plan (People complaining about spending – Bush spent $800 Billion and counting in Iraq, at least this money is going to America).
Again brilliantly designed political rhetoric which makes for great conversation on CNN carefully crafted spin financed by the monopoly owned press but is very far from true; contrary to this report this money is not going to Americans but specific Americans within the congress, special interests, corporations and bankers who have taken the money out of the Unites States in purchase of assets abroad. On a civil service salary Nancy Pelosi is a billionaire, Sen. Feinstein is a millionaire, Corzine is a millionaire, and the list of wealthy congressional leaders is staggering. The list of congressional leaders made coincidentally wealthy “after the bailout” is quite disgustingly staggering.
9. Appointment of first Latina to the Supreme Court.
Sorry, I have been trying to remain objective but…I have to say..
Rather than weighing the content of one’s character. Something of which I as a black man believe very strongly in, we have reduced the conversation to skin and race. African Americans must expected more from this President who rode in on the coat tails of Martin Luther King & Black sacrifice. Africans Americans have been one of the most objective judicious deliberators of truth & justice (as a consequence of being discriminated against no doubt). It is time that we maintain this historical moniker of truth, & throw out the “First Black President” because this “First Black President does not protect the Bill of Rights or Constitution of this land. While no one is perfect including this author, we nevertheless proclaim as individuals the necessity and right to aim for that paragon of excellence. It is as King said the “content of his character” that is sourly lacking and we judge him not based on his race, skin color but his character. Because we are truthful arbiters of justice, as we have seen this testimony of responsibility shouldered by men of different color like John Brown, Ron Paul and other emancipators of slavery; it’s many forms. On this basis I can state with surety that Harriet Tubman would not elect Obama for a 2nd term.
10. Attractive tax write-offs for those who buy hybrid automobiles.
Attractive…yes that is about all we get from the Obama administration…The “appearance” of good governance but the content behind the attractive person, policy, etc. always is lacking. Tax write offs use the cleaver language used often in sales campaigns. “You can earn up to $3,400 in tax rebates”. More cash for clunker spin. This incentive is really for Corporations to get their consumers more dependents on less quality for more money & the Global warming scam. The truth is: “Credits for Toyota and Honda hybrids no longer qualify at all for tax credits. Ford hybrids have been cut in half” . Tax credits are almost a distant memory.
11. Authorized construction/opening of additional health centers to care for veterans.
Most veterans are either homeless, unemployed or like most Americans have been given a bounced check on freedoms and liberties promised. Scott Walker was so well thought of by the Obama administration that he has been declared an enemy combatant by our government under s.1867 law and can be detained for asserting his Constitutional rights. Health care costs in America remain one of the highest in the industrialized world.
12. Renewed dialogue with NATO and other allies and partners on strategic issues.
This renewed dialogue is the partnership with organizations that traffic women men and children, whereby rape & murder are common, NATO has come under righteous scrutiny in the wholesale bombing of women and children in Libya; to targeted assassinations & murder of civilians, soldiers of Libya, people seeking to protect their homes, land and families. Renewed dialogue on strategic issues has brought dishonor to the legacy of Freedom so desired by the Founding Fathers of America. And while America was founded on the tyranny of Wars & some elements of hypocrisy, the Founding Fathers nevertheless were motivated towards the highest principled benevolent, altruistic objectives possible Freedom. Hundreds of years later & after WW2; NATO would be formed to ensure that those same rights, emboldened within the principles of freedom, outlined in the US Constitution, & declared in the Bill of Rights, as well as promoted in the Declaration of Independence that sovereign countries around the World; in plural could be united to prevent unbridled tyrannical war by tyrants & dictators against the innocent civilians. That time has passed; partnership with the US/Israeli cabal has brought NATO into a shared tribunal of War crimes. Today NATO is euphemistically known as the North American Terrorist Organization; a tool of US imperialism.
13. Beginning the process of reforming and restructuring the military 20 years after the Cold War to a more modern fighting force… this includes new procurement policies, increasing size of military, new technology and cyber units and operations, etc.
With over 700 military bases around the World. And with a list of countries the United States has either bombed into Stone Age living or impoverished through deconstruction paradigms, to the CIA destabilization secret programs, all so as to corner the market on resources at a time when most countries around the World simply negotiate for those resources. Increasing the military is hardly necessary, new operations no necessary as these encroachments into the sovereign nation breeds enmity & hate (like Ron Paul suggested was the possible cause of 911) not for our freedoms but for our obstinate imposition of US will.
14. Better body armor is now being provided to our troops.
This is more clever spin that does not hold up to any truth. We all remember Iraq and the Body armor scandal. For those not paying attention to the Obama scandal involving the Gun Walker Operation Fast and Furious, Body armor along with weapons (the best kind) is provided to the enemy while our troops get the body armor that is the worst kind, offering little to no protection). As seen here our troops body armor does not meet specification, resulting in more deaths.
15. “Cash for clunkers” program offers vouchers to trade in fuel inefficient, polluting old cars for new cars; stimulates auto sales.
Cash for Clunkers has ended.
A dismal failure. Poor Americans were the hardest hit.
16. Changed the failing/status quo military command in Afghanistan.
The US is now guarding Poppy fields and is now publicly In the drug business.
17. Closed offshore tax safe havens.
These tax havens were for middle class individuals hoping to escape the tyrannical & ubiquitous exploits & tendencies of the IRS a god send for those individuals desiring for a chance not to contribute to funding wars of aggression. Tax havens for the wealthy however continue unabated. And coupled with bailouts which is tax payer money given to Wall Street bankers and corrupt corporations. (A welfare benefit to the rich)…Tax payers have no protection, no privileges for which offshore havens could potentially offer.
18. Deployed additional troops to Afghanistan.
At tax payer costs to guard the poppy fields and protect the heroin triangle. At a time when American are losing their homes and are unemployed or are on welfare benefits in such high numbers as not seen since the Great Depression.
19. Ended media “blackout” on war casualties; reporting full information.
Today Americans do not know American deaths or civilian deaths in Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Libya. A media blackout continues on all Wars, drone attacks that kill innocent children families. Causalities of victims who have died in US torture camps or US affiliated camps continues with a black out so defined by the black sacks over US Guantanamo detainee heads. Today US citizens are as blacked out as those unfortunate victims illegally detained by our government, paid by US tax payers. Today American are not given the true numbers of the killed civilians in these war ravaged countries. Tapes & videos that detail the testimony of rape of innocent women men and children by US soldiers have vanished from Congress & the World media has been silent.
20. Ended previous policy of awarding no-bid defense contracts.
Essentially removing competition; Obama just recently signed the biggest military defense budget in US history. Signing the biggest defense of US freedoms by protecting the Bill of Rights & the Constitution might win some votes.
21. Ended media blackout on war casualties and the return of fallen soldiers to Dover AFB.
This is disgusting hypocrisy. It was web bloggers whatreallyhappened.com, rense.com, infowars.com as well as a sleuth of other reporters that broke this story. No one in the media, Geraldo, Oreilly all were preoccupied with the agenda of selling more Wars & building consensus. The US administrations including Obama were doing the same. Draped coffins could be seen on Rumor Mill News as well as other sites dedicated to quality news reporting.
22. Ended previous policy of cutting the FDA and circumventing FDA rules.
Today under the Obama administration The FDA has unrivaled control over the Food industry. The Obama Administrations has permitted legalization of untested potentially hazardous chemicals to be used on the American population. US citizens are virtually guinea pigs to genetically modified foods, cloned beef, Monsanto, to say nothing of the drug industry. The US FDA Industry is an open door to any organization willing to pay for or lobby for their product to be recognized as safe for human consumption. MSG, aspartame and other hazardous chemicals, pesticides have been rebranded under different names with not even a peep out of the Obama administration. No more circumventing laws designed to protect consumers… It’s an open door now.
23. Ended previous practice of forbidding Medicare from negotiating with drug manufacturers for cheaper drugs; the federal government is now realizing hundreds of millions in savings.
Those savings go into the pockets of wealthy. Contrary to the insinuation of this post; Obama is hardly the reason for this so called victory. With the ageing of America along with jobs being sent overseas…Americans couldn’t pay for cheaper drugs even if they were offered. Fact of the matter is that America is over-medicated society, coming In the form of sometimes forced vaccinations for our children, to thousands of dangerous, cancerous chemicals inside every product used by Americans from deodorant, soap, toothpaste, amounting to every food consumed to every product put on or in the body. Drug manufacturers offered a direct threat to the life, health, welfare of every American. The user of these chemically laced drug based products to the sell of pharmaceutical for every problem imaginable has increased under the Obama administration. The pharmaceutical drug causing more problems than the benefits the drug offers to heal. One has to wonder if there is a secret agenda in the most pharmaceutically, drug dependent society the World has ever known. To date the drug chemical companies make billions of dollars pay little to nothing in taxes and are arguably more protected from suits & malpractice under the Obama Administration than at any time in US history.
24. Ended previous practice of having White House aides rewrite scientific and environmental rules, regulations, and reports.
Again more mischaracterizations of the truth; Climate Gate taught the World that government complicity in corrupting and rewriting information was endemic throughout all sectors of the US scientific economy with regard to environmental regulations & reporting. The conspiracy to sell the public concepts that nurture the taxable paradigm of Global Warming is still tightly manipulated. Even at a time where consensus on the fact has reached a dismal low.
25. American Recovery and Reinvestment Act have created 2.1 million jobs.
Unfortunately this is more political fluff speaks designed to woo the naïve masses on by virtue of superficial appearance but having no substance. The benefits of the so called American Recovery and Reinvestment Act which has purported to have created 2.1 million jobs is hotly debated as it is, like most “Acts” are hard to locate.
What we do however know now is that Americans are facing the Greatest of Greatest Depressions the US has ever seen. And that recovery cannot be quantified or qualified without jobs that allow Americans to retrieve their looted savings, retirements.
26. Ended previous policy of not regulating and labeling carbon dioxide emissions
Unimportant to most Americans; Obama might have labeled his DVD movie collection for easier reviewing but this act hardly provides any meaningful evaluation upon which a verifiable independent review of his achievements can be regarded.
27. Ended previous policy of offering tax benefits to corporations who outsource American jobs; the new policy is to promote in-sourcing to bring jobs back
More hyperbole! Sure…Obama has recently signed a Bill (reported to be the largest since NAFTA) with certain countries. What the article fails to mentions like most of the media is that the US will export these jobs. An estimated 160,000 jobs will go abroad. 90,000 in Korea, 55,000 jobs will be exported to Columbia with even more job being exported to Panama. These plans and like we all know…Plans and hyperbole marketing etc….is just that… spin. Steve Jobs before he passed told Obama “You’re headed for a one-term presidency,” (The Huffington Post).
28. Ended previous policy on torture; the US now has a no torture policy and is in compliance with the Geneva Convention standards.
Torture is pandemic in detention camps run by the US. These camps though on foreign soil are still US detention camps! And like a company whose employees are overseas, are in fact bound by the rules of the country as well as the US. The US is operating a criminal facility franchised out outside the compliance standards outlined in the Geneva Convention. Like the Bush Administration. The Obama Administration continues to legalize torture. There can be no US government pardoning of War Crimes. Just as Hitler’s successors could not have pardoned his War crimes.
29. Launched Recovery.gov to track spending from the Recovery Act, an unprecedented step to provide transparency and accountability through technology.
The Obama Administration has lost over $200 Billion of Tax payer treasury money. (money which cannot be recovered, since apparently he does not know where it went.) Obama administration has until this date been a dismal failure
30. Ended previous practice of protecting credit card companies; in place of it are new consumer protections from credit card industry’s predatory practices
The Credit Card Bubble is the next big bubble to burst. There is no Glass Steagle Act to protect the speculation of loans on credit cards. The credit card scam continues unabated, and to a large degree unregulated ensnaring the population into a debt based society with the complicity of the Obama Administration.
A note of consideration: I cannot find a single issue Obama can run on in the next election. If he plans on running on Race rather than the content of his policies then I expect that he will be sourly disappointed.
Ron Paul looks poised to take this election hands down, barring any corruption at the voting booth & machines.
If the establishment and the complicit media, government installs Obama in 2012 America as we know it to be…will be forever & completely lost.
Freedoms, liberty, the country that was America has been destroyed greatly with Bush/Obama Presidency. The largest transferred of wealth in World History has taken place with both of these men at the helm. From the poor , from the middleclass & from the rich all to the super rich.
Homelessness & unemployment which has reached epidemic proportions will rise, protests on college tuition by students, wars of aggression costing trillions, Americans are already indebted beyond their capacity to pay. The nation’s debt is already so enormous that our children’s children will be guaranteed a lifetime of debt servitude. To get out of this debt America is seeking policies that will surely bring about WW3.
America Can Not Afford Another Obama Presidency.
