Transformational - Barack Obama 2012 - Comrade

H/T to Jess for two excellent articles about Obama and his goals concerning a Copenhagen treaty, and Obama’s Commie Colors.

Both articles from the American Thinker.

The Surprise at Copenhagen

It is only logical that President Obama will sign any Copenhagen climate change treaty that may result from this week’s negotiations. His worldview demands it. His past statements and ongoing actions presage it.
 
 Obama believes in AGW (anthropogenic or man-made global warming) theory. He believes in “economic and social justice,” and that logically leads to “climate justice.” He may believe that the U.S. owes a “climate debt” to the rest of the world. What better way to lead the charge than to carry the ultimate banner of the radical left — wealth redistribution — under the auspices of the “crises of climate change.” AGW even has victims: “climate refugees.”
 
Many doubt Obama’s ability to legally commit to a binding treaty and obligate the United States. The possibility, however, prompted Senator Webb to issue a letter to President Obama reminding him not to sign any treaty in Copenhagen. The letter cautioned him to make no make commitments that will not pass the Article II treaty ratification framework under the Constitution requiring a supermajority vote (67 votes) in the Senate. I submit that this thinking is flawed, and Obama has no intent of taking that path.
 
The president has obligations under U.S. law to “enforce” regulations and “follow the law.” This is the the foundation he would use to sign the treaty in Copenhagen. In 1996 the Supreme Court ruled that the EPA must regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases as pollutants. (Massachusetts et al. v. EPA et al.).The EPA, stalled by the Bush administration, slowly moved through various required hoops to substantiate that CO2 is in fact a “greenhouse gas” and amongst several others is causing global warming. Once President Obama took office, the EPA was unleashed. On April 17, 2009, the EPA declared CO2 and five other “greenhouse gases” a potential danger. According to their own findings, they relied heavily on the now-suspect IPCC data, much of which is tainted by the “Climategate” files.

This allowed for the Dec. 7, 2009 EPA “Endangerment” notification that CO2 is one of the “dangerous” greenhouse gases to be regulated through the Clean Air Act. The notification declared CO2 to a pollutant, which is pretty stunning all by itself. Setting aside all the arguments for and against anthropogenic global warming (the science is far from settled), we now have a new beast on our hands.

This simple EPA declaration triggered new regulations under the auspices of the Clean Air Act and put the agency in the driver’s seat of our carbon-based economy. To have this group of closet radicals at the wheel of our economic engine is scary enough, but it doesn’t stop there. Obama will also use the following:

The Clean Water Act
With CO2 now considered a pollutant, atmospheric CO2 pollution and water quality become closely linked. Now here comes the Clean Water Restoration Act (CWRA), steaming full ahead out of the blue. The proposed Senate version looks deceptively like a minor change. In U.S. Supreme Court cases, federal regulatory authority currently extends only to waters that are navigable or perhaps directly connected to navigable waters. The Senate bill would remove the word “navigable.” The significance of the dropped word is that any backyard fishpond or birdbath, any swimming pool, or even a piece of low ground that is prone to forming puddles after rains could be subject to new regulations from the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers.

The Endangered Species Act
Climate change theoretically threatens not only human welfare but also the very existence of numerous other species. If you think the spotted owl or a minnow in California is in danger…look out.

The National Environmental Policy Act
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) seeks to promote “efforts which will prevent or eliminate damage to the environment and biosphere.” The NEPA requires the preparation of a “detailed statement” — commonly known as an Environmental Impact Statement, or EIS — for proposed legislation and “other major Federal actions significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.” Although the courts have interpreted NEPA as predominantly a procedural and informational statute, it nonetheless provides the public and federal decision-makers with important information about the environmental impacts of federal actions, as well as possible alternatives and mitigation measures that could help alleviate those impacts. U.S. courts have squarely held that NEPA requires federal agencies to analyze climate change impacts.

President Obama already has the power to sign a Copenhagen treaty. Most people think of international agreements as treaties. The Constitution under Article II authorizes the president to “make Treaties” with the “Advice and Consent” of the Senate, provided that “two thirds of the Senators present concur.” Getting 67 votes in the Senate is a non-starter.

There is another path…and Obama doesn’t need any new powers to forge ahead. A “congressional-executive” or “legislative-executive” agreement is made by the president under authority granted by existing statute. This merely requires the approval of a majority in both houses of Congress, rather than a supermajority in the Senate.

Congressional approval can be given either ahead of time, in the form of express authority, or after the fact, in the form of approval of such agreements by majorities in both houses. The chance of a majority vote passing is much more likely than a supermajority vote. These agreements, not treaties, have been used to approve many well-known and binding international arrangements, like the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The Obama administration is not bluffing about the “command and control” powers of EPA regulation versus the “market-based” powers of the stalled cap-and-trade bill. They do not wish to extort the passage of legislation with the threat of EPA action. The new international commitments will be based on existing U.S. laws and regulations, and the treaty commitments will then be used to reinforce those same laws and regulations — even providing the pretext for the urgent need for new ones to enforce the treaty obligations.

Anyone no longer believing Obama’s campaign language of “fundamentally changing the United States” underestimates this man. This is a massive power grab of historical and possibly unconstitutional breadth at a breakneck pace. Card check, health care reform, TARP fund misallocations, the stimulus bill pork-barrel spending, cash for clunkers, the $3.4 billion settlement with the Indian tribes, the financial reform bill, additions to the federal work force amidst the hemorrhaging of jobs in the private sector, and now this…we had better wake up and smell what this team is shoveling. And fast.

Obama the Red Avenger

 

Barack Obama Marx

The French called Hitler a revanchiste — a Kaiser soldier of World War I aching to avenge his old defeat. Hitler made no secret of his desire for revenge. He made it a Nazi slogan. Well, you can have ideological revanchisme as well — for instance, a Marxist determination to take revenge for America’s victory against worldwide Communism in the Cold War.

The word “Marxist” is now used as a kind of a sly boast in academia; I just talked with a professor who calls himself a “Marxist historian” and smiles to himself when he says it. He obviously thinks he’s a hero by being a Marxist in America. But according to Marxist historians themselves,

in “crimes, terror and repression,” with still more dying today in North Korea. That’s not even counting the dead and wounded in wars fought by Communist regimes.Obama’s early life indicates that young Barry may have been brought up as a Red Avenger against America. We know that he talks like an anti-capitalist and an anti-Constitutionalist, and that he compulsively apologizes for American actions during the Cold War. The Cold War was not something we started — it was started by Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and other totalitarian mass murderers long before the Korean War and the Vietnam War, our two hot proxies in the Cold War.
What we haven’t understood is how deeply Obama was indoctrinated from childhood onward in the war against America. But every intelligence agency in the world has to have figured it out, because it’s all in the public record. Leftists around the world have also known it from day one, and that includes leading Democrats. Obama was not an unknown to Democrat Party apparatchiks. Or the media. Only the American people were kept in the dark. The media and the Democrats are still doing their Obama cover-up today and hoping they will get away with it.

Why is Obama so deeply, emotionally opposed to America’s defense of freedom and democracy in the Cold War? Because
 

Barry Soetoro was born in 1961 and lived in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta from age six to ten, the years 1967-1971 — right after the bloodiest civil war in Indonesian history, which took place from 1965 to 1967. The Indonesian Communist Party, the PKI, was wiped out and massacred during that civil war. There is absolutely no way a left-wing family living in Jakarta could not have been in a constant uproar during those years, even after the massacres had died down. After all, Barry’s parents were active sympathizers

, if not party members themselves, as was his biological fatherIndonesia was host to millions of ethnic Chinese, some of whom were slaughtered in the “communal violence” which followed a failed coup. China was then in the middle of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, which killed from
 

50 to 70 million people.

Ann Dunham, Lolo Soetoro and Barry Soetoro were living in the very midst of the hottest front line between the West and totalitarian Communism. Indonesia’s dictator General Sukarno was overthrown in 1965 by either the Communist Party (the PKI) or the Indonesian army and Islamic parties — and probably by all three. The PKI was the third biggest Communist Party in the world outside of the Soviet Union and Communist China. (
 

See The Year of Living Dangerously.) PKI members were killed in the resulting riots and massacres throughout 1965 and 1966, starting in Jakarta, where Barry Soetoro’s family lived. Imaging living in Atlanta, Ga., right after General Sherman finished marchin’ through Georgia

, and not knowing anything about it. There is simply no way those earth-shattering events could not have touched Barry Soetoro’s life in Jakarta from the age of six to ten. Barry’s temporary dad
 

Lolo Soetoro

was originally a supporter of General Sukarno and the Left; Sukarno’s party had sent Lolo to Hawaii to get a graduate degree, where he met Ann Dunham. There is no real safety in such conditions. Revenge killings happened after World War II in Europe and after the Civil War in the United States.The big question is, Why did Ann Dunham risk bringing her young child to Jakarta? She must either have been utterly naïve politically, or, much more likely, she knew that she and Lolo were protected by powerful political forces.

Ann Dunham was at least an active
 

fellow traveler with the Communist Party. Remember, this was just fifteen years after the death of Stalin and the American domestic reaction to Stalinist infiltration, now dubbed “McCarthyism.” We now know with historical certainty that the U.S. government, including the State Department and the White house, was in fact infiltrated by Stalin’s Communist Party members, and that secrets of U.S. nuclear bombs were instantly passed to the Soviet Union by Manhattan Project member Klaus Fuchs, who was honored by the East Germany Communist Party when he went back there. Stalinist Communists were also very powerful in Hollywood,

the newspapers, and the universities. Barry’s childhood and education under the guardianship of
 

Communist Party representative Frank Marshall Davis, followed by an endless parade of far Leftist mentors from Hawaii to Harvard and Chicago, were all shaped by an identical political narrative. Every adult he ever knew told the same story. Everybody hated the same satanic enemy: American capitalism — also known as freedom and democracy — the CIA, the U.S. military, Senator Joe McCarthy, President Eisenhower, and Richard Nixon. We now know that Nixon was overthrown by the American Left using the Watergate scandal, including the Washington Post’s Ben Bradlee, in close coordination with the FBI’s Assistant Director Mark Felt

, who was Woodward and Bernstein’s Deep Throat.The Jesuits used to say, “Give us a boy before he is ten and we will have him for life.” That’s why the Ranting Reverend Wright’s Church of Marxism was such a natural place for the Obamas to go every Sunday and bring up their own girls. It’s what they were used to; it had that old home feeling.

When kids believe that their mothers and fathers are in danger, they often imagine themselves to be the saviors — they can get a
 

Savior Complex

. (Sound familiar?) Children in abusive families often feel that way. Barry Soetoro grew up needing to rescue his side in the Cold War — the Red side.Human beings who think they are world saviors are narcissists from day one because they believe they have God-like powers. How else can you Save the Planet? How else can you “keep the seas from rising,” as Obama said in his acceptance speech to the Democrats?
 

Narcissism is a standard character trait on the Left. It’s one of the basic differences between ideological Leftists and conservatives. Edmund Burke

, the granddaddy of Anglo-American conservatism, pointed that out in his most important book, Reflections on the Revolution in France (1791). Conservatives are generally normal people. Ideological Leftists are ambitious World Saviors who turn out to kill a lot of people who resisted being saved by coercive force. Can you think of any American conservative who acts like Obama?Take a kid with a savior complex and raise him with an endless slew of Leftist mentors, from Mom onwards. He is the savior child as far as they are concerned — the Red Avenger. He will redeem them in the bitter aftermath of the defeat of Communism. Barack Obama has had substitute parents — patrons who eased his way — throughout his life, including Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, and Emil Jones.
Notice that I have not said that Obama is dangerous. A lot depends on defeating ObamaCare, cap-and-trade, EPA regulation of CO2, and dozens of other mad and foolish schemes.

The American political system is resilient, but we must know the truth. I believe that “the Red Avenger” is the ground truth of who Obama really is.

It’s not Obama’s blackness that’s at issue. It’s his redness.
