Obama’s Speech: A New Birth of Government

Obama’s speech Wednesday  was not, as you may have read, a “pivot” to the economy. Rather, it was a sweeping statement of purpose by a leftist president angling to get government involved with every aspect of your life and solidify the arrangement for generations to come.

I wanted to let you know about an opinion article I did for Reuters today about Obama’s remarks: Obama’s Plan: One Nation Under Government.

Here’s an excerpt:

Speaking Wednesday at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, Obama presented a statist vision that should send chills down the spine of anyone who believes that free markets, not government, create wealth.

Obama sketched a series of problems that he says confront the United States and hold back what he called the middle class. He might as well have used the term “proletariat,” though — because every fetter he described requires government intervention to make things right .

“I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way,” warned Obama.

He’ll stop at nothing to get this done. I hope you have a moment to take a look at the piece.

  1. So how can Dictator Obama not be recognized for what he truly is after this Stalinesque speech – a hard core communist bent on turning the United State into a Soviet style country with himself as Dictator for Life?

    • like Melvin said I am shocked that some people can get paid ($)8647 in a few weeks on the internet. did you look at this web site… c­a­n9­9.ℂ­ℴ­M

  2. You have really put your finger on something that the other commentators on yesterday’s speech missed. Most of those from the right focused on the retreads and cliches and portrayed it as a pastiche of all of his speeches from the past five years. Hannity with his yawns and snores was an example. But there is something more sinister going on. It’s Obama’s last chance to “transform America” into a dictatorship and negate the Constitution before the 2014 election.

    Appearing in Reuters, I hope, will give your article a chance at wide dissemination.

      • So after 4 years of middle class incomes dropping and part time jobs created as the majority, you think he ideas are the best? Are you crazy? Yeah, it won’t be his last chance in 2014 because he will impose martial law when he loses the Senate too. You don’t get it. He doesn’t CALL anyone to help him with his “plan” to destroy the country. He gives “speeches.” I don’t think CEO’s will be willing to sit and listen to his twisted, hollow speeches. The unions won’t be listening either since they are turning on him due to Obamacare gutting their power because of the loss of full time jobs for their members. You may be taking a “positve view that you will win in 2014” but the ENTIRE country is LOSING under his failed policies. Wake up! What do you care about most, winning? …or the complete destruction of our country? From your comments, I guess winning. How pathetic.

        • “[M]artial law”? Are you serious? He would have to force each member of the military to abandon his or her oath to defend the Constitution. I don’t see that happening at all.

          P.S. Your words to Julie are unkind and inaccurate.

          • Mandy, Recently there was a spate of articles that Brett first mentioned here about the militarization of our police. A very solid one in the WSJ,.There is that and there are about 6 or so federal agencies that are heavily overarmed with not only SWAT capability but other pretty scary armament.

            Remember what the Boston Police Department was able to do in response to the Marathon terrorists.

            Pointing this out does not assent to the coming of martial law, but I can see how easily it could be implemented without the military.

            But my two cents — Obama prefers to destroy from within.

          • Don’t forget Obama’s most dangerous tool–Presidential Directive 51 (signed by Bush 2, unfortunately). The Directive allows Obama to suspend the US Constitution for any situation or event which Obama defines as an “emergency”. Check link below and in particular Corsi’s description of the Directive. Now we know why Homeland Security ordered 2 billion .40 cal hollow points (about the number of rounds used in 5 WW 2’s) and 7,000 plus armored vehicles.

            http://freedomoutpost.com/2012/11/will-barack-obama-use-directive-nspd-51-to-postpone-elections/

            There are many other links to describe Directive 51 which will also make the hair on your head stand up.

      • I think his mentioning how many days he has left in office is related as well. I don’t believe he will leave office at the end of his term. He is up to something very sinister.

        • Sinister, I agree! He could also be fishing for a reaction from the low-info voter audience – “Don’t leave – we love you”. “We won’t let you leave!” Crying and pandemonium breaks loose as the countdown to his departure begins, lol.

        • I some think people have such contempt for him that they underestimate him. But most probably just can’t fathom the mindset of a sincere leftist trained in the Alinsky method and thinking long term. Many readers of WHD seem to get him much better than almost all of the Washington establishment does.

    • I just read Keith’s piece and knee jerked a response. But you and Keith have nailed it in the sense that people misunderstand or close their eyes to Obama’s intent. Casting his speech as just another retread is disturbing. That to me was the driving point of Keith’s piece.

      It does not help us to call him out as socialist, communist, Stalinist, facist and the like. But statist works.

  3. The takeaway:
    “I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way.”
    Translation:
    I: Me, myself – not you.
    Not allow gridlock/inaction – Will enact by Executive Orders
    Willful indifference – To create Dissent.
    Our way: To do what we want.

  4. Obama is the one destroying the middle class. The independents know that now. They will tell him with their vote in 2014. He doesn’t get it. Speeches do not make policy. He is the MOST worthless president in the history of this country. You would have thought after 4.5 years of this crap he would finally get it. Here is my message to him, “Quit wasting OUR money flying around the country giving the same old speech you have been giving since 2004. We quit listening a LONG time ago!”

  5. Keith, excellent. Best ever in my opinion. Identifying Obama as a statist and backing it up with line by line of the speech was powerful. I hope it gets picked up and widely distributed and discussed.

    This is not same old, same old Obama. This is that with unrelenting purpose. And given how outside the law and the Constitution this Admininistration plays, this is dangerous talk.

    Pretty clear:

    I will not allow gridlock, or inaction, or willful indifference to get in our way,” Obama warned. “That means whatever executive authority I have to help the middle class, I’ll use it. Where I can’t act on my own and Congress isn’t cooperating, I’ll pick up the phone — I’ll call CEOs; I’ll call philanthropists; I’ll call college presidents; I’ll call labor leaders. I’ll call anybody who can help — and enlist them in our efforts.”

    I was listening to Charles Payne on FBN this am about Obama’s speech and he was livid. (for Charles) He wouldn’t let go of the fact that Obama’s speech was so divisive to enact his vision. There was something about this speech that really set him off.

    Well done. I hope it gets serious consideration.

  6. Great piece Keith, brilliant observation and a disturbing punch in the gut all in the same read :D With hopes more of the media wakes up before it’s too late. We need them now more than ever …. God Bless America <3

  7. Spot on, Keith! And it sends chills down my spine knowing that this charlatan is taking his traveling propaganda show on the road.. replete with his hand-picked audience of low-info, clapping seals. The more desperate he gets, the louder the applause becomes. Will the day ever come when he is forced to stand in a public forum and get pelted with a volley of questions from irate taxpayers? How much longer is he going to get away with calling his scandals ‘phony’ and ‘old news’. That’s what I call scandalous.

    Comment from a poster on another blog:
    “At least when Hitler gave his speeches, he didn´t have a bunch of idiots sitting behind him looking stupid. “

  8. I have not trusted the gov. since the forth grade when I learned what happened to native north-american indians, chinese railroad workers/slaves, japanese in our concentration camps, african slaves. Not to mention Lincolns’ assination, assasination attempt on McGovern, assasinations of both Kenedys, Martin Luther King… and the list goes on
    Its time we stand up and demand the constitution b upheld!

    • “I have not trusted the gov. since the forth grade when I learned what happened to native north-american indians, chinese railroad workers/slaves, japanese in our concentration camps, african slaves.
      SNIP

      Actually, the Consitution permitted slavery in Article I Section 9:

      The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight, but a tax or duty may be imposed on such Importation, not exceeding ten dollars for each Person.

  9. Last night Mark Levin suggested a constitutional amendment requiring anyone elected to the Office of President have some work experience outside of government. It’s not one of the 11 amendments in his new book, “The Liberty Amendments”, that outlines how we can employ Article V of the Constitution to bypass Congress and ratify constitutional amendments, but it is worth considering. Something needs to be done about the faculty lounge lizards and career politicians who are running our government into the ground because they have no concept of how the free market operates.

  10. “…and solidify the arrangement for generations to come”.

    This is perhaps the scariest part of the Obama presidency. He will be gone after another 3 1/2 (long) years, but the damage that he will have done to our great country will take many more years to undo.

    And most people haven’t yet realized that.

  12. So Sir Golfsalot descends from the throne and we’re all supposed to be awed at his renewed focus on the economy.

    What a Marxist fascist puke.

    Keith, good article but we’re fighting a losing battle here. I live in CA and there are still far too many out here who view Sir Golfsalot as the chosen one who can do no wrong. I don’t know how future elections are going to change this, if no one cares enough to really pay attention to what King O’s plans, or the Dems plans overall, really are.

    This country is on its way to a Detroit-like future. Just a matter of time. Prepare now, folks…..

  13. Dear Keith Koffler,
    Your article “Obama’s Speech” is spot on. It is painful for me to listen to the ‘Arrogant One’ give a speech. Thank You for listening and your intelligent analysis of what O is really saying.I enjoy your White House Dossier blogs.
    Diana L.

    • I’m sure somewhere in the ACA is a provision that allows–and, funds–the executive branch to do what is needed to carry out the law.

  14. Keith,
    Your article is excellent! From your readers comments, I know that we all concur on that point. Thank-you, and the coming speeches will exceed anything we have heard to date! (I can’t explain how I know some things, but my sources are genuine and from past experience, I keep a very low profile.)

    Your voice and those of every American citizen are going to be needed to motivate our fellow citizens to begin now to bravely and strongly speak-out and write their state Congressmen to protect their state courts by asking for their reps to introduce ALAC – American Laws for American Courts – legislation immediately.

    We need to contact our DC legislators, regardless of party, and explain that the continuing ‘wh power-grabs’ by exec orders, his dep’t chairs, and his advisers show his disdain and disrespect for the American citizens opinions expressed by our elected leaders to Congress! (Put their local offices and DC offices #’s on speed dial!)

    Additionally, the bho wh policies are bankrupting entire cities: Detroit and Los Angeles (soon), and others are deteriorating AND bho sends billions of $’s of weapons and other aid to nations that are in chaos and whose leaders hate and promise to destroy the USA, Christians, Jews, and non-muslims around the World. So disturbing, yet soon bho will ‘utter’ more divisive words that will shock our sensibilities – hopefully into effective ‘grass-roots action’ now. jb

      • You are so right! In my former position, I traveled for more than ten years to many cities with limited security. However, when I traveled to Detroit, my security was more restrictive. Sadly, the growing city corruption destroyed my colleagues and my abilities to effectively consult and to implement measures that could have possibly stimulated job growth. In my opinion, for what its worth, only private investors can turn Detroit around, eventually, AND that is only with dramatic improvement and enforcement of ‘and by the legal system’ in Michigan to benefit all Michigan citizens. (bho’s billions of tax-payer stimulus $’s went to the ‘wrong people’ for all the ‘wrong reasons’. I want my money returned! HA! The laugh is on all of us Americans. jb

  15. “unfettered”

    I don’t think anyone wants anything to be completely unfettered. We abide by a Constitution, do we not? Why go to extremes?

    I couldn’t help but think about the massive debt this nation owes while reading the article. That’s what’s killing us.

  16. Charles Stanley says that we can never lose a battle if we fight it on our knees. Pray, people – pray for God’s mercy on our country.

  17. Thanks everyone. I’m really happy to see how many of you thought well of the ideas in this article. I felt it was important to try to explain what’s going on here and I was glad I was able to communicate it, but I think a lot of you were already there before I wrote a word. I hope others who are not as on to this as you all take note.

  18. Most people kind particular viewpoints plus prejudices according to what we should hear, see and skim. It impacts all of us deliberately plus unconsciously, and has now the capacity in order to previous eternally. This kind of Textual Imagery, info plus communicating purified to all of us 2nd by 2nd, carries a significant effect on your American consumer.
