Is it really possible the President of the United States was informed Muslim radicals were ready to strike American embassies, yet literally did nothing to warn them or bolster security? If so, Barack’s presidency is no longer tenable. If the US had credible knowledge of an impending Libyan embassy attack and took no defensive measures—this government must not stand.

If Obama knew of the threat, and was indifferent, he is therefore morally unfit to lead, and perhaps suffering from a grave mental or character defect. Or, Barack did not know, and therefore cannot possibly be actually in command of his position, and therefore—is likewise unfit to lead

There can be no other interpretation of events. The world is suddenly so dangerous, we Americans must return to our senses to save ourselves and the rest of the free world. It is time to end this diseased experiment in political correctness, and progressive fantasies.

American Traitors: Burr, Benedict, Barack

America has occasionally suffered traitors. defines Treason as:

  1. The offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
  2. A violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.
  3. The betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

Benedict Arnold’s story is well known, trading his position as the Revolutionary War’s most successful general for traitor to America, trying to sell a Colonial fort to Britain. But Aaron Burr’s tale is the more interesting. Founding Father Burr is considered perhaps the most brilliant Princeton graduate, despite entering at 13 years of age. He had every conceivable gift, except common sense and moral probity. Burr’s fatal flaw was blind ambition, believing he should be emperor of his own country. Writes PBS:

If he had been able to keep his ambition in check, Aaron Burr might have become president. Instead, he became known as the man who killed Alexander Hamilton and as one of the most notorious traitors in history. The United States purchased the Louisiana Territory from France in 1803. Aaron Burr saw the territory as a place where his political hopes could be revived. Conspiring with others, Burr hatched a plot to conquer some of Louisiana and maybe even Mexico and crown himself emperor.

Burr’s trial for treason might rank as the greatest in American history, with more luminaries than any other. Burr was acquitted.

II. What Happened in Libya?

Four hundred Muslim radicals stormed the US Embassy in Libya and killed several Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. There was no contingent of US troops to protect the building. Further, it is claimed the US government was warned well-ahead of the attack, but did nothing in response. Afterward, across the globe—Muslim unrest errupted. The UK Independent who broke the story reported this:

The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three of his staff were likely to have been the result of a serious and continuing security breach, The Independent can reveal. According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

The obvious question is how there could be no response to a serious threat to an embassy in a place that just suffered civil war, from the most powerful country in history—at the height of its powers. Besides flatly denying the story, Barack has yet to give any reasonable explanation.

The US Constitution, in Article III Section 3, addresses treason:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

So, what does this all mean? Liberal Washington Post just reported Barack regularly skips half his intelligence meetings. Stunningly, Obama skipped the intelligence meeting the day before the attack. Now, to state the obvious: Even if Obama were the greatest genius in history, he could never overcome a lack of factual knowledge, which by definition changes day by day. Further, a highly disturbing pattern has emerged revealing Barack a highly conceited, yet underinformed and disinterested absentee leader who most typically depends on underlings to digest information and offer simplistic, predigested choices for him. Can anyone say—Asleep at the wheel?

III. A Potential Grid to Explain Obamaism

Yet, it is simply inconceivable that all of Obama’s bad choices are unlucky accidents—especially if he is the brilliant savant his backers claim. Moreover, is it really coincidental that the net effect of his policies just happen to lead towards what most people believe are his deeply held secret beliefs—Marxist socialism? Of course not. Consider the following.

All Marxist ideologies presume revolution must occur before a better world can evolve. This revolution achieves the actual overthrow of capitalism; which is then supplanted by socialism; then finally replaced by communism. In this struggle the wealthy are stripped of their ill-gotten gains, which are symbolically returned to “the people.” The fight must be led by professional revolutionaries, who erect a temporary Tyranny (of the Proletariat) so that all societal ills can be addressed.

Here is erected a state with absolute powers and control—there no longer being any civil or constitutional rights for residents. This state is hard-minded, judging all by “materialistic” standards, that is, by who controls wealth. Religion is banned as a paradise of humanism flourishes in its place. Finally, the state takes precedence over the decisions and even fate of all persons, for salvation is only found in this humanistic paradise—for to reject the deified state’s benefices is to be damned.

Since there is no afterlife, and as man has no soul, what remains the proper object of our labors should be the improvement of this life. This can only be achieved by pooling all resources, placing always the group before individuals, and settling all rights and privileges within the strong and dependable arms of the state. Once all resources are shared collectively, then peace on Earth will reign—because there will be nothing left to fight for, as all hunger will end, and all wants cease. (see If Obama were a Marxist, what would he believe?)

Arguendo, If Obama carried such crypto-Marxist beliefs, it would explain virtually every currently inscrutable aspect of his troubled reign. First, American economic decline would be the only desired outcome for a Marxist, which fits in with Barack’s avoidance of putting jobs first in his policies. A Marxist would want to stress global relations over his own country’s—which would explain Obama repeatedly pitching his appeals to foreign audiences. A true Marxist would find no shame in lying for the good of the cause, in fact—that’s presumed, given the unpopularity of Marxism amongst commoners. A genuine Marxist considers his socialism a religious creed, and resents any other religion that cannot be co-opted into Marxism. It’s no surprise that Islam uses default socialism as its economics, or that Obama’s “Christian Church” was the quintessence of crypto-Marxism. etc

All of the complaints and perplexities about Obama can be settled within a Marxist framework, quite easily. In fact, probably only this acceptably resolves all the various contradictions. Therefore, according to Thomas Kuhn—this theory appears true based on its ability to explain more of the known facts than any other.

IV. Dire Consequences of Extended Incompetence: Global Dangers of Adopted Weakness

Imagine the obvious negative outcome of the American president refusing to protect his employees, overseas, or stateside! Or pay enough attention to do so. Here are a few to ponder caused by Obama’s malfeasance:

  1. Emboldening attacks against Americans, allies and our facilities globally.
  2. Causing allies, present and potentially future, to doubt our words and commitments.
  3. Increasing the risks of war, and actual conflicts either regionally or globally.
  4. Causing a general spike of lawlessness in local areas as control becomes more tenuous.
  5. Costing more American lives as increased numbers of clashes take their toll.
  6. Increasing commodity prices as globe becomes rated more dangerous, and insurance skyrockets.
  7. Making many previously safe foreign areas inaccessible to world travelers and missionaries.
  8. Causing goods to become more expensive or unavailable as America loses trade leverage.
  9. Surging global unease as it becomes unclear whether bad acts will be punished.
  10. Making it much more likely America will be attacked again, since a strong response can no longer be presumed.
  11. Putting Liberties and Arts at risk as the globe becomes a less safe place to dissent.
  12. Causing a worldwide depression as trade tanks over sudden fears and risks.

The most extraordinary aspect of Barack’s failure to act prudently to protect Americans, even by way of warning, is the utter subjective sense of this wrong. Certainly, either he or his staff could have communicated danger and a need for a Marine platoon or evacuation in less than a minute. Therefore, it paints his entire administration as not just incompetent, but cavalier, and utterly lacking in good will, or even any humanity. An astoundingly bad and absolutely unforgivable turn of events.

V. A Compendium of Horrors

Contemplate now the many unpleasant and frightening things we learned about Obama from this one simple failure, which ought be described as a foreshadowing of things to come. The absolute, inescapable, takeaway fact from the Libyan event is Obama is pathologically unable and unfit to lead. In fact, in retrospect—perhaps he never did attempt to lead, but only foment revolution—and everything else was the pure, pathetic projections of his supplicants?!! But consider these unseemly facts, come to light, like a field full of fresh dead:

  1. We now know for certain Obama is not a sincere person, a dedicated civil servant, or a strong leader.
  2. Barack reveals in sickening fashion that danger and death to Americans concerns him not.
  3. Obama obviously feels no responsibility for those in danger.
  4. Chances are high Barack has a dangerous mental illness or a psychological anomaly.
  5. Obama putting others at risk and in danger to achieve his goals presents no obstacle to him.
  6. Barack’s “secret deal” conversation with Russia’s President Medvedev, caught on camera, now augers even greater dismay in his future “cooperation” with their goals.
  7. We must now recap every single Obama statement, decision and fact, looking for manifold ways in which he has tried to sell America down the river, aka Benedict Arnold.
  8. Frighteningly, we can no longer trust anything from Barack, ever again.
  9. Most of all, we must now admit the most obvious fact in the world—Barack is a brutal critic of America, our values, aspirations and history.


As Heraclitus once observed, Character is Destiny. Whether Obama purposefully left the embassy in Libya unprotected in the face of telegraphed threats, or was too distracted to notice, doesn’t really matter in the final analysis. Either choice represents the kind of character unfit for leadership of any organization, let alone the helm of the world’s only superpower.

“It is the supreme function of statesmanship to provide against preventable evils.”—Enoch Powell

Stasis is the condition of non-movement; Revolution the rank imposition of change. That Barack could not foresee that blind support of Islamic rebels during “Muslim Spring” would motivate previously static societies into religious revolution, thereafter threatening Americans, is astounding. Again, if done from stultifying ignorance or incomprehensible indifference, Obama does not have the mental capacity to lead the free world. Contra, if this was attempted as some dark chess move, it threatens world war. This reveals an infernal character of the sociopath.

From any possible angle, the net effect of Barack’s tenure is a spectacular failure of the statesman’s arts. After his epic malfeasance approximating treason, Barack should resign or be impeached. Knowing the improbability of this, at the very least, he cannot be allowed further misadventures, but must be stopped before Hades itself is loosed upon the Earth.
