...a majority of the American people

“Taking Our Temperature”

Progressive talking heads, including President Obama, recently adopted the idiom “a majority of the American people” in order to misrepresent public sentiment concerning their radical positions; suffice it to say that, in these cases, the truth has been quite the opposite.


They know that of course, and this is why their rhetoric remains so spirited. To Obama and his co-conspirators on the left, lying comes as naturally as breathing.

Though radicals appear to be on the verge of a wholesale usurpation of political power in America, they realize that their end game is not going to endear them to that majority of the American people. Thus, their tone, declarations, and allegations have reached epic proportions in terms of outrageousness.

Democrat lawmakers and the Obama administration are currently crafting yet more “immigration reform” legislation. It is commonly understood that this will amount to amnesty for millions of Mexican nationals currently living illegally in the U.S. – so commonly understood in fact, that illegals are now flooding U.S./Mexico border in anticipation of this prospect, some allegedly asking authorities, “Where do we go to get our amnesty?

Republican lawmakers, ostensibly in an effort to play nice, are once again in ankle-grabbing mode on the issue, although this isn’t likely to make them the friends they think they’ll make. A recent poll shows that likely voters “strongly favor enforcement over legalization for illegal immigrants. Unlike a number of other recent polls, the new survey avoids the false choice of conditional legalization versus mass deportation. The survey also shows that a significant majority of Republicans, and voters generally, are less likely to vote for members of Congress or a political party that supports legalization” (Center for Immigration Studies).

Here, of course, “a majority of the American people” do want immigration reform, but what they’re likely to get is a national system representing that of California – and we know how well that worked. Judging from history, it is also painfully evident that the millions of illegals granted amnesty can be counted upon to vote for Democrats, mainly because they will be aggressively courted by same, and because they will perceive Democrats as their benefactors. They will also most likely tax the economy beyond measure, rather than contributing to it.

Claim any of this, however, and you’ll be labeled a member of the racist fringe. Similarly labeled are those who believe that the push for “marriage equality” pertaining to homosexual unions is far more about further destabilizing our culture than equality.

In Denver this week, President Obama openly mocked those who are concerned about the erosion of their rights under the Second Amendment. He and others on the left relish representing these people as fringe elements, yet, according to a recently-released Rasmussen poll, 44% of likely U.S. voters believe it is at least somewhat likely that the government will try to confiscate all privately owned guns. That high a number does not typically constitute a “fringe element” in the eyes of most people.

Once again, Obama fallaciously cited the desires of “a majority of the American people” who want children to be safe in his advocacy for draconian measures in the area of firearms. Meanwhile, at a media forum this week on the topic of gun control also held in Denver, Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) evidenced her abysmal ignorance of what a firearm magazine actually is, while vigorously attempting to ban them. The fact that she did so with smug condescension and inappropriate attempts at humor simply underscores the elitism and imperious mien harbored by these odious swine. 

On the economic front, we now know that President Obama doesn’t even acknowledge a “debt crisis.” He is busy fundraising for the 2014 election cycle, pushing for amnesty and gun control while millions remain jobless, and the incremental implementation of ObamaCare mandates fling wrench after wrench into the economic engine.

On Tuesday, it was reported that the Obama administration is currently pushing to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that the administration says will aid in the economic recovery. In my 2010 book Negrophilia: From Slave Block to Pedestal – America’s Racial Obsession, I detailed how the Cloward-Piven Strategy for Orchestrated Crisis was adapted by activists and radical lawmakers (some of whom happen to be Obama cronies) specifically to bring about the financial implosion that occurred in late 2008.

Now, they want to do it again – and no one will move to stop them because it is not widely acknowledged that the last go-around was their doing in the first place.

Of course “a majority of the American people” want to be able to afford homes and want a stable economy, but no one in the establishment press is asking this president how his methods are supposed to bring these about. What troubles me is that few in the conservative press are even willing to identify policies such as I have described here as having been intended to bring about the detrimental effects they have brought about, and are almost certain to bring about in the near future.

All in all, I find all of this quite analogous to this administration telling Americans they’re merely taking our temperature, when they’re actually… well, I’m sure you can figure that one out…
