Bob Schieffer asked the candidates to name the top national security threat to the United States near the closing of the last presidential debate. The answer is obvious: Barack Hussein Obama.
1. General Motors bond holders had their private property stolen and “redistributed” to the United Auto Workers union. The basic tenets of our Republic are life, liberty and property. Once we lose the right to keep our property, we have become subservient to the whims of Socialist tyranny.
2. As part of an attack on the 2nd amendment, Fast & Furious was to become an excuse to infringe on our right (and duty) to keep and bear arms. The operation failed and over two hundred Mexican citizens were murdered in an attempt to overturn the Bill of Rights. Obama invoked executive privilege to excuse Eric Holder’s contempt charges:
At Holder’s request, the White House invoked executive privilege in June on the information that Rep. Issa’s committee subpoenaed seeking internal DOJ documents after drafting a Feb. 4, 2011, letter to Congress that contained inaccurate information about operations at the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms.
A republic that abandons the rule of law will fall.
3. The Department of Justice has followed a two tiered justice system based on race. All men are no longer created equal as outlined in the Declaration of Independence:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal
During Congressional testimony, Eric Holder referred to the New Black Panthers’ intimidation of voters in Philadelphia as
” I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people”
Mr. Holder refused to charge the individuals involved in a clear case of voter intimidation because of their “race”.
4. President Obama has increased our national debt to $16.19 trillion in less than four years. A 60% increase in our debt has put our national security in jeopardy.
DETROIT, Aug. 27, 2010 – The single biggest threat to national security is the national debt, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff [Navy Adm. Mike Mullen] said yesterday, underscoring the importance of good fiscal stewardship and a need to stimulate economic growth.
Once we outsourced our debt to foreign nations, we gave up our security and sovereignty.
5. The president has been committed to transferring dependence of the American people to the government. The best example is food stamps:
since December 2007, or the start of the Great Depression ver 2.0, the number of jobs lost is 4.5 million, while those added to foodstamps and disability rolls, has increased by a unprecedented 21 million
Newt Gingrich was correct in his analysis that Obama is “the food stamp” president. However, the real threat is the growing legion of people who depend on the government for food, sneakers and iPhones at the expense of working Americans.
6. The government has engaged in a policy of manipulation of unemployment figures in order to deceive (outright lie) concerning the economy. Although the population has increased since 2008, the people in our workforce has decreased according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The September unemployment rate (U3) was 7.8%. According to the latest number, the unemployment rate is 8.34%. But the actual number is 15.85%.
7. The president has brought legal action against Arizona for passing immigration laws that mirror federal laws. Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution states:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.
8. The president has a kill list that has no oversight:
Mr. Obama has placed himself at the helm of a top secret “nominations” process to designate terrorists for kill or capture
Is this what our founding fathers sacrificed to give their children?
9. The president has overthrown the legitimate government of Libya as part of “the right to protect” kinetic action. Where does the Constitution give the president or Congress the authority to attack another nation without cause?
10. The government has purchased 1.8 billion hollow point rounds of ammunition.
Who poses the greatest threat to the United States and our Constitution? The answer is obvious and this list is not complete.
