Barack Obama: American Pharaoh

Last week I spoke in front of the Los Angeles City Council and referred to them as the "Pharaohs of Egypt" for their totalitarian tendencies to vote in ridiculous freedom-destroying rules that get voted into law with little to no discussion.

I made a reference to them doing their best Yul Brenner impersonations and decreeing across the land...

"So let it be written, so let it be done."

Of course, this didn't go over very well...except with city activist Zuma Dogg, who tweeted to his followers that it was one of the best public comments ever.

My problem with the Democratic Party right now is the tremendous set of blinders they are wearing that fail to allow them to see the danger that Barack Obama poses not only to our country, but to the rest of the world.

For example...

1) Immigration

Barack Obama has been labeled the "Deportation President" by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. I find this description comical. Barack Obama has TWO illegal immigrant relatives living here in the United States. One of them living off of the backs of US taxpayers by being on public assistance. Hell, Obama even invited that illegal immigrant Aunt of his to the 2009 Inauguration!! What type of message does that send to the world?

The answer is clear. If you are a potential immigrant, Obama is giving you the middle finger.

There are hundreds of thousands of people who want to be American citizens. They go and stand in long lines in sweltering heat in places like the Philippines and South Korea. I know because I have seen it myself -- in person. These people play by the rules, hoping to get that magical ticket to America. Barack Obama gives them all the middle finger by allowing his own blood relatives to stay here illegally, yet at the same time deporting tens of thousands of others.

The situation here is quite clear...if you are a member of Obamas family, immigration law does not apply to you. That is a terrible message for America to send to the rest of the world. It harms our status as the vanguards for human freedom in this world.

2) Obamacare

The idea that our incompetent and corrupt government can accurately manage the health care for 320 million human beings is beyond mind-blowing. Obamacare has over 130 references that say that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius "can decide" or "may decide" or "will decide" the path of American Health care. If Obama is the Pharaoh, then Sebelius is the Pharaoh Junior.

Obama has decided to grant over 800 waivers to Obamacare. Most of these waivers being granted to donors or supporters of his or his henchmens political activities. In short...

Obama himself will decide whether or not the law will apply to you.

This is a dangerous precedent to set. It is the pathway to tyranny.

No elected leader should be deciding by himself who the law applies to and who it doesn't.

If the law was so great, why aren't Obamas union buddies running to this thing and eagerly jumping onboard? They are not. They are running in the opposite direction. That speaks volumes in and of itself.

3) Bailouts

Some Democrats and other various liberals like to brag about the bailout of GM and Chrysler.

They shouldn't brag too much. The bailout was a disaster. It was the biggest theft of public money in human history. With this act, Obama became the "Embezzler-in-Chief".

The biggest problem with the bailout is that it is the U.S. Government interfering in the free market. So what if GM would have gone under? There is no Eastern Airlines anymore, but people can still fly.

How is this bailout "fair" to other car companies who managed their books and expenses in a reasonable and professional manner? Why does Ford get punished by watching their competition get a free boost from the taxpayers?

GMs assets would have been bought up by some other car maker and most likely re-utilized. Honda, or Ford or Toyota would have bought their assets on the cheap, and set up more production to fill the void created by GMs failure. To interfere in their bankruptcy is a measure of corruption that the labor unions exert on the Democratic Party.

Obama bought GM with taxpayer money and screwed the stock and bond holders by handing GM to the union workers. This sends a chilling message to the rest of the world that Obama is the new American Pharaoh. He alone will decide which businesses will not be allowed to fail.

4) Catholics

As a Catholic, I am offended and repulsed by Obamas direct attacks on the Catholic Church.

Using the guise of Obamacare, he now decrees that all Catholic charities and institutions must violate their deeply-held religious convictions, and act in a secular manner and dispense birth control and abortion medications to their employees.

In response, Catholic leaders have threatened to shut down many of their institutions rather than face this tyrannical trespass against their faith.

Think about that.

Obama, in his lunacy, would act in a way that would cause one of the most charitable institutions in human history to close the doors of some very valuable operations.

There is one especially evil caveat to Obamas behavior here.

If you are Catholic, you are forced by Obamacare to violate your faith.

If you are a Muslim, ...relax... Obamacare does not apply to you.

In conclusion...

I'm getting a little tired of this President and his continual use of the word "fair". He alone is deciding who immigration and health care laws apply to and who they don't. He alone is deciding which industries will be saved by taxpayers and which ones won't. He alone is deciding which religious institutions will face his persecution and which ones won't.

Barack Obama has become the American Pharaoh.
