Obama learned his politics in Chicago. Why is anyone surprised that he has one of the most corrupt and tyrannical administrations in our history?
Brian Costin at The Illinois Policy Institute noted that:
“Illinois is notorious for government corruption.
Since 1976, the state has had the third-highest amount of public corruption convictions in the country — including four out of the last seven governors.
Outside of Springfield, things aren’t much better. Chicago has been called “the most corrupt city in America.” A report by the University of Illinois-Chicago and the Better Government Association revealed that in the last 140 years, 150 top Cook County officials have been convicted in public corruption cases.” [emphasis added]
In a recent post Daniel Greenfield wrote how the nation has become “Chicagoized.”:
“The machine doesn’t care about individuals. It only counts bloc votes. It doesn’t care about making life better for people. Its genius is for finding ways to make life worse because it knows that it has more leverage over people looking for the next meal than over people looking to buy a house in the suburbs. The political machine doesn’t budget; it loots. It breaks the bank, raises taxes, drives out industries and rules over a feudal war zone sharply divided between the rich and the poor.”
Obama’s Chicago thug style of politics has reached full bloom in cities like Detroit. In “Obama Leading Us to Liberal Utopia Like Detroit” Michel T. Snyder examines the liberal dream come true and where Obama is taking America:
“If you want to know what the future of America is going to be like, just look at the city of Detroit. Once upon a time it was a symbol of everything that America was doing right, but today it has been transformed into a rotting, decaying, post-apocalyptic hellhole. Detroit was once the fourth-largest city in the United States, and in 1960 Detroit had the highest per-capita income in the entire nation. It was the greatest manufacturing city the world had ever seen, and the rest of the globe looked at Detroit with a sense of awe and wonder. But now the city of Detroit has become a bad joke to the rest of the world. Unemployment is rampant, 60 percent of the children are living in poverty and the city government is on the verge of bankruptcy. They say that Detroit is just a matter of “weeks or months” away from running out of cash, and when Detroit does declare bankruptcy it will be the largest municipal bankruptcy in the history of the United States. But don’t look down on Detroit, because the truth is that Detroit is really a metaphor for what is happening to America as a whole. In the United States today, our manufacturing infrastructure has been gutted, poverty is absolutely exploding and we are rapidly approaching national bankruptcy. Detroit may have gotten there first, but the rest of the country will follow soon enough.”
Dr. Robert Owens compared Obama’s reign to that of King George in the list of grievances that colonialists had with the tyrant king in “Is It Time to “Form a More Perfect Union”?“:
The president refuses to enforce laws duly passed by the legislature and signed by the executive.
The Justice department incites racial division and covertly interferes in the judicial process.
The Federal Government which is charged with protecting every state from invasion has refused to secure our borders and allowed tens of millions of people to enter and stay illegally adversely impacting every aspect of American life.
The IRS has targeted groups and individuals that hold opinions opposing the Obama administration.
The President has made recess appointments when Congress was in session; he has waged war without Congressional approval or notification, he took an apology tour around the world, he casts our allies aside, and he promotes our enemies.
Sounds awfully familiar doesn’t it?
Equality is not enough for Obama. He wants revenge, retribution in the form of “redistribution” which is communist speak for taking away from one group and giving it to another by force of government. He proved that when he reopened the Pigford Ag Department discrimination case and redistributed an extra billion dollars to anyone who claimed to have been discriminated against. He proved that when he appointed the racist Eric Holder to head the DOJ. A DOJ that has refused to apply the same voter protection laws to white people as to black people. A DOJ that pushed assault weapons to Mexican drug cartels so that in the words of Holder the government could “change the way we think about guns.”
Thomas Sowell said Obama has turned his back on a color blind society and instead wants a “getting even, a revenge society.” This is exemplified by the appointment of Eric Holder as Attorney General and Holder’s actions with that position.
For Obama, his ends justify any means. He has given billions of dollars to “green” companies (many have gone broke at taxpayers expense) that have ties to campaign contributors, more billions to unions in the supposed auto bailout, and billions more to keep government union workers employed.
He has perpetually lied to the American people. He said he would cut the deficit in half and doubled it. He railed against debt and then tripled it. He said he would take a scalpel to every wasteful program yet wild spending by agencies has reached scandalous proportions. He said every bill would be posted for three days and then passed Obamacare in the dead of night without anyone having a chance to read it. He said he would have the most transparent presidency ever. He meets with lobbyists outside the White House so records won’t be kept. He covered up the Fast and Furious gun scandal by executive order. His staff and government agencies have private email accounts to hide what they are up to. He hid the truth about the terrorist attack on the Benghazi embassy to protect his reelection. He claims to know nothing about the IRS targeting those who oppose him, the NSA spying on millions of Americans or how the Benghazi lies were put out.
About the only promises Obama has kept are to make our electricity rates “skyrocket”; to “fundamentally transform America”; to create “redistributive change” and to make the agenda of SEIU the agenda of America.
