A New Obama Litmus Test
(Dr. Jerome R. Corsi) – Is the new litmus test for military leadership under the Obama administration the willingness of a soldier to fire on U.S. citizens?
This was the claim last week by Jim Garrow, the WND author of an important 2012 book entitled The Pink Pagoda, detailing the genocide resulting from China’s continuing one-child per family policy.
At the start of his second term, Obama appears determined to do everything possible to disarm the American people in complete disregard of the Second Amendment’s prohibition of infringing the right of Americans to own and bear arms.
A list of the 157 weapons identified by make and model that would be outlawed by the restrictive “gun control” legislation introduced into the Senate by California Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein is frightening. If Feinstein has her way, purchasing a gun will demand working through a maze of registration paperwork designed to allow bureaucrats to say “NO” in the final analysis.
All Tea Party patriots must be placed on alert. If Obama and Feinstein succeed in manipulating a school shooting tragedy into a crisis that can be used to cancel our fundamental Second Amendment freedoms, this nation will head down a path to enslavement from which we may never recover.
Tea Party patriots must clearly explain to Obama and the Democrats now in power in Congress that threatening Second Amendment freedoms is a clarion call, awakening us to the need to reject the creeping socialism of the welfare state in our demand to return to the core principles of the Constitution.
With the Federal Reserve engaged in yet another round of printing money to buy U.S. Treasury debt and with the Obama administration preparing to run yet another $1 trillion federal budget deficit in 2013, we need to ask why it was so important for him to start his second term trying to limit guns.
Again, I remind readers that a reasonable understanding of Obama’s presidency is that he was serious when he stated he intended to cause a fundamental transformation of America.
That fundamental transformation appears to involve a final abandonment of the U.S. Constitution and the definition that document contains that God confers upon us as citizens our rights.
I continue to argue that Obama campaigned using Saul Alinsky class warfare rhetoric based on the theme, “Tax the Rich,” and that his economic policy is based on the Cloward/Piven theory.
Cloward and Piven were two radical sociologists at Columbia University when Obama was there. Their major thesis was that the best way to destroy capitalism and transform the USA into a socialist state is to overload the welfare system with so many economic demands that the nation goes bankrupt making entitlement payments.
The Obama administration is shaping up to be an assault on both our fundamental freedoms and our economic system, with the goal of producing a final transformation of America into a nation Marx and Lenin would recognize as their own.
Now Feinstein attacks the NRA, claiming it is “a venal” organization that has abandoned its grass-roots base to become an institution of gun manufacturers.
It is hard to estimate how Obama’s narrow 2012 electoral win over Mitt Romney has emboldened the Democrats to think their party has a mandate to move the nation in a leftist direction.
Why else would Obama now insist upon gun legislation as the first initiative of his second term?
Why would Obama seriously ask the military if they would be willing to open fire on U.S. citizens?
It is time for Tea Party patriots to understand that Barack Obama means it when he claims to be a transformational president.
Obama has twice taken an oath to uphold the Constitution. Now is the time to demand that he respect that oath by affirming to U.S. citizens that the purpose of the U.S. military is to defend American citizens, not to disarm American citizens.
As Tea Party patriots we must draw the line.
The point of resistance must be this: The Second Amendment is the Tea Party’s last line of defense. As patriots, we must demand the right to own and bear arms must not be infringed, not now or ever.
Responsible gun ownership is fundamental, not just to our freedom, but to the freedom of future generations – a principle our Founding Fathers clearly understood.
