Obama’s America: From World Superpower To Welfare State

America finally knows what President Obama meant when he said he intended to “fundamentally transform America.” He aimed to make this country unrecognizable to its Founding Fathers, and he’s done just that.

Obama has reversed the role of the federal government – instead of looking like the world’s hegemonic superpower, we look more like the world’s most innovative social welfare state to be envied by all of Western Europe.

This year defense spending will sink to its lowest levels in our nation’s history; meanwhile, entitlement spending will reach new highs.

This is part of an astounding overall trend in our federal government’s spending habits. The Heritage Foundation reports,“Defense spending has declined significantly over time, even when the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are included, as spending on the three major entitlements—Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid—has more than tripled.”

In 2012 alone, Heritage reveals an immense gap between defense and entitlement spending—defense comprised 19% of total outlays, while entitlements reached a gargantuan 62% of federal spending.

This is a complete perversion of what the Founding Fathers intended.

As former Senator James Talent wrote, providing for the common defense is the “priority job” and “the only mandatory function” of the federal government.

He wrote in the Heritage Foundation,“Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution lists 17 separate powers that are granted to Congress. Six of those powers deal exclusively with the national defense—far more than any other specific area of governance….”

Indeed, America’s early presidents and Congresses respected and stayed true to this bedrock conception of the federal government.

The Office of Management and Budget acknowledges before the 1930s, most federal spending went toward “national defense, veterans’ benefits, and interest on the public debt,” and in 1929,“71 percent of federal outlays fell into these categories.”

But, today, the opposite holds true. Our federal government devotes nearly that same amount to the welfare state even though the Constitution only makes a cursory mention of providing for the general welfare.

Taken together, our country has strayed perilously far from the America our Founding Fathers envisioned, and in doing so, we are expediting our fall from greatness.

Where is the America that toppled the Soviet Union, put the first man on the moon, and conquered the great frontier? That America is quickly becoming a distant memory.

Instead, we are striving to become a liberal Utopia, all the while ignoring that this sort of idealism precipitated the all-consuming debt and economic travails we see just across the Atlantic Ocean.

America must reject the premise that our Constitution is outdated, cliché and therefore invalid and demand that our government reflect the core principles that made us the greatest nation on earth.

It’s time to thwart Obama’s twisted plan or perhaps the foreboding words of President Ronald Reagan will one day ring true:“We’re in greater danger today than we were the day after Pearl Harbor. Our military is absolutely incapable of defending this country.”

Obama Treated to a Full Plate of Conservative Thought
Obama At Prayer Breakfast Forced To Hear Amazing Speech By Conservative Black Doctor Decrying Political Correctness, Moral Decay And Fiscal Irresponsibility….

President Obama was forced this morning to sit stoically at the National Prayer Breakfast while a world-renown pediatric surgeon who dragged himself up from poverty recounted his story, espousing conservative values and policies as a means of healing the nation and its poor.

I wanted you to take a look at this brave individual, Dr. Benjamin Carson, speaking his version of the truth to power. The speech is nearly a half hour, but if you have a few minutes, I think you will find it worth it.

WHY DID SOME LOCAL MEDIA EDIT OUT ANTI-NRA, PRO-OBAMA PORTIONS OF ACCUSED COP-KILLER’S SUPPOSED MANIFSTO?

The supposed manifesto of a fired Los Angeles police officer being sought in several slayings contained praise for President Barack Obama and gun control and disdain for the National Rifle Association in portions apparently redacted at the request of the LAPD.

L.A. Fox affiliate KTTV-TV published a portion of Christopher Dorner’s writing that left out his political views. Other local news outlets including KTLA-TV and KFI AM 640 did the same.

KTTV did originally publish a full version but removed it from their website after a request from police, a spokesman told BuzzFeed. Reached for comment, a KTTV assistant news director told TheBlaze only that,“The LAPD put out a request that a lot of the stuff be redacted.”

An LAPD spokeswoman refused to comment to TheBlaze about the request, saying the department would have nothing to say on the matter until Dorner was captured.

Below are portions of the redacted version of the manifesto. The entire thing is available at Gawker (content warning — strong language):

On Obama:

You disrespect the office of the POTUS/Presidency and Commander in Chief. You call him Kenyan, mongroid, halfrican, muslim, and FBHO when in essence you are to address him as simply, President. The same as you did to President George W. Bush and all those in the highest ranking position of our land before him. Just as I always have. You question his birth certificate, his educational and professional accomplishments, and his judeo-christian beliefs. You make disparaging remarks about his dead parents. You never questioned the fact that his former opponent, the honorable Senator John McCain, was not born in the CONUS or that Bush had a C average in his undergrad. Electoral Candidates children (Romney) state they want to punch the president in the face during debates with no formal repercussions. No one even questioned the fact that the son just made a criminal threat toward the President. You call his wife a Wookie. Off the record, I love your new bangs, Mrs.

THE VOTER FRAUD THAT ‘NEVER HAPPENS’ KEEPS COMING BACK
~ Absolutely, Absolutely, Votor Fraud!

Critics of photo ID and other laws cracking down on voter fraud claim they’re unnecessary because fraud is nonexistent. Brennan Center attorneys Michael Waldman and Justin Levitt claimed last year:“A person casting two votes risks jail time and a fine for minimal gain. Proven voter fraud, statistically, happens about as often as death by lightning strike.”

Well, lightning is suddenly all over Cincinnati, Ohio. The Hamilton County Board of Elections is investigating 19 possible cases of alleged voter fraud that occurred when Ohio was a focal point of the 2012 presidential election. A total of 19 voters and nine witnesses are part of the probe.

Democrat Melowese Richardson has been an official poll worker for the last quarter century and registered thousands of people to vote last year. She candidly admitted to Cincinnati’s Channel 9 this week that she voted twice in the last election.

This is how Channel 9's web site summarized the case:

According to county documents, Richardson’s absentee ballot was accepted on Nov. 1, 2012 along with her signature. On Nov. 11, she told an official she also voted at a precinct because she was afraid her absentee ballot would not be counted in time.

“There’s absolutely no intent on my part to commit voter fraud,” said Richardson....

The board’s documents also state that Richardson was allegedly disruptive and hid things from other poll workers on Election Day after another female worker reported she was intimidated by Richardson....

During the investigation it was also discovered that her granddaughter, India Richardson, who was a first time voter in the 2012 election, cast two ballots in November.

Richardson insists she has done nothing wrong and promises to contest the charges:“I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States.”

But, of course, as you know there is no voter fraud. Pay no attention to that lightning coming out of Ohio.

1. Yes, my reference to "Fox News" was a jab.
2. We know that you still believe that Iraq had WMDs. Of course there are several things which you believe which are untrue also.
3. You will stick with "Fox News" because they tell you the things you want to hear, not the truth -- which you do not want to hear.
4. I have not read the Christian Science Monitor for years, but they always had a reputation for accurate reporting. The one page I read today did not have any apparent bias.
5. I realize that you cannot stand to watch or listen to any viewpoints other than your own. You have your black opaque glasses tightly covering your eyes, so you cannot see what is out there in the real world.
No, I don't think Iraq has WMD's but I think they once did. They were hidden, transported or whatever but I think they had them. I also think JFK was murdered. I think it was a plot......not just a guy who decided to kill the president one day.

You're just a die-hard liberal that is so hard-headed that you wouldn't know the truth if it hit you in the face.

Maybe you should go live with the movie stars. You would fit right in.(However they are not all crazy lefties)

Don't get around much do you? If you did, you would know what is happening to this country.
