WASHINGTON, July 2, 2013 ― When are conservatives going to come out and start telling the truth? President Obama is not simply engaging in “war on coal” or a “war on energy.” He is engaging in a war on America, the American dream, American prosperity and freedom itself.
Obama can squander billions on worthless projects and the Congress will not stop him. Everything Obama does is against America.
Why can’t conservatives simply come out and say Obama is making war on America?
In South Africa, Obama promised $7 billion in America money for the development of African energy. Gee, wouldn’t it be nice if Obama were that interested in developing American energy.
While Obama is promising to blow another $7 billion in American tax dollars for projects that will end up being just as wasteful as Solyndra and his other boondoggles, the White House is still closed to public tours because of budget cuts. In order to save $100,000, the military is cancelling fireworks shows at a number of bases because of budget cuts.
Would it be asking too much of those allegedly brilliant people we have elected to Congress to cut off Obama’s credit card?
We are in the middle of the Great Obama Depression. Allegedly unemployment under Obama is down to 7.5 percent. His unemployment figures have the same credibility as those emails from the Nigerian who wants you to help get his late business partner’s multimillion-dollar fortune into the U.S.
We have 90 million Americans out of the labor force. The labor force has shrunk to levels we have not seen since 1979. Obama wants to keep spending and spending on projects that would have to improve to simply be called fraudulent.
While Obama spends America into the Great Obama Bankruptcy, he continues to make war on American business.
In a stunning development, Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has decided that it is racist to conduct criminal background checks as a prerequisite for employment.
Employers generally like to know these things. If someone has a history of theft, that’s a pretty good indication an employer does not want to hire this person to be handling money. If a person has a history of violence, he or she is probably not a good choice for employment, since among other things, an employer can be held legally liable for an employee’s action.
But no, the Obama Administration’s EEOC says this is discriminatory because blacks have a higher rate of criminal convictions than whites or Hispanics.
It does not matter to the EEOC that background checks are administered neutrally. It does not matter that all applicants are subjected to the background checks.
The end result of this policy is going to be higher unemployment, if the companies challenging this are not victorious in court. Every policy the Obama Regime has pushed has resulted in higher unemployment. From the employer mandate of Obamacare that is driving up unemployment, putting a chill on new hiring and forcing many people into part time jobs, to the economic policies that have been the equivalent of cement galoshes for the economy to Obama’s regulation orgy that has so many new rules and regulations being issued from Washington, no business can keep up with them, much less grow.
Obama is making war on America and the American economy.
The Republicans claim to be the adults in the room.
If they are the adults in the room, it is long past time that they cut up Obama’s credit card.
Will the Republicans stand up and do just that?
If history is any indication, Obama’s war on America will continue unabated.
