O: He's Doing it On Purpose

I haven't had time for much blogging today, but the news this week involving the Obama Administration was more than I could stand. And there's one particular aspect of the news coverage this week that drives me nuts more than anything else.

I keep hearing Republicans and conservative media/blog types keep calling the president "arrogant" because of his actions, most recently his appointment of Susan Rice as the new National Security Adviser despite the taint of her name with the Benghazi scandal. I think that's true enough. This action was basically Obama flipping off the American public. But they will also keep calling the president "naive" over the way he conducts both foreign and domestic policy. Now and then, we'll hear someone mention the fact that Obama is following the Saul Alinsky playbook, but for the most part, they just can't seem to wrap their minds around the idea that Obama's behavior is anything more than incompetence.

I have said it before and I will continue to say it. Obama knows EXACTLY and PRECISELY what he is doing. Everything his Administration does is done on purpose. They simply do not CARE what the American public thinks. They do not care what the media think, although by and large the media have been star-struck worshipping acolytes and propagandists for anything Barack Obama does. Congressman James McDermott's remarks this week were shameful defending the Administration's behavior over the IRS scandal, but that's typical McDermott. Some liberals are waking up to the implications of the IRS getting sicced on folks because of their political beliefs. Some have called Obama "Nixonian" because of the way he goes after those who oppose him. Very true.

But he is not acting as he is acting out of ignorance or ideological naivete. He is purposefully out to create as much havoc in this society as he possibly can, and to do all he can to wreck as much of the American system as it stands as possible. All par for the course for a hardcore leftist who used to teach "community organizing" and the Alinsky method to do that very thing. Obama wants chaos and havoc. He wants a systemic collapse so nothing can stand in the way of the little socialist Utopia his ilk think will solve the world's problems.

And even that gives these folks the benefit of the doubt that they have a "good" aim in mind even though misguided. I tend to think (and knowing the fallen nature of man and man's hunger for domination) that these folks are doing what they're doing for no other reason than gaining power. Power over everyone's lives, beliefs, actions, income, job choices, health care, family governance, everything. They arrogantly think they know best. They know better than anyone else, and they will brook no opposition.

Some think people—even some in the mainstream media—are finally waking up. I hope so, but I'll believe it when I see it. My cynicism is off the charts.

Hi Joel. Just wanted to drop a note on this post. It's what I've been feeling for some time. Have you seen the movie 2016, Obama's America? I think that's the title. By Dineesh D'Zousa? I watched that and when it was over, my wife and I looked at each other and both of us said, "I think Obama's the Anti-Christ". Those are hard words, but when you start adding up all he's doing, I am about convinced. If he somehow wangles another election, or in some way retains power, I will believe it.

Hi, Jim..

I'm reluctant to make that determination. From what I can gather, the Antichrist has to be someone the Jewish people would accept, and thus far, Obama's anti-Israel position has not endeared him to the Jewish state.

I'm not sure that acceptance means they agree with everything, but rather that they accept him to use him. I can see Israel using O. The Arabs already are.
