What thoughts flow through your mind as you view Barack Obama speaking? The thought of distrust or unsettling disgust? Perhaps, the quick grab for the remote to change the channel. America questions our direction. Questions our leadership. And, now, questions the President of the United States.
America, in growing numbers, questions the very words of Barack Obama. Not just conservatives and Republicans, but independents and Democrats. Let's be blunt. The man has serious integrity problems.
Although somewhat nauseating, I invite you to not change the TV channel. Listen to what he is proclaiming. When you analyze the context of what he is saying, more and more, you will find he is an outward expert on doublespeak.
Doublespeak is a method used by propagandists throughout history. It is used to contort the perspective of the populous into believing all is on the level. Painting a vision of mellowness and malaise. This provides just enough haze on the truth to allow government leaders with deceptive intent to take the very actions they accuse of others. The despicable art of painting your opposition as yourself. This action gives them room to move on their agenda while putting their opposition on defense with the media and the public.
Let's explore some striking examples using this method by Barack Obama and his political machine. For instance, when he says Republicans are being political on a crucial issue, Barack's own political minions are watering down issues on every network. When he speaks of Republicans blocking energy bills in Congress, Democrat Harry Reid in the Senate takes no action on several House bills to spur energy production. Barack speaks of his current efforts to promote energy. Yet under his administration, the EPA, Department of Energy and other bureaucrats have severely restricted the U.S. energy sector with stifling regulation and red tape. When he speaks of supporting business growth, his crony capitalism has suppressed and grounded business development through taxation and regulation. Barack espoused how his Obamacare would contain the costs of insurance, yet individual premiums have skyrocketed and he granted premium waivers to unions. Obama's pundits hit the media saying he is not in campaign mode. The same day he holds four campaign events in New York City raising $5 million. In 2012, he has held over 130 campaign events. Now, think about how many times he publicly proclaims to support Israel. Then, his administration stands by or (some analysts say) takes an active role in churning up the turmoil in Egypt, Syria and other countries near Israel. The list goes on and on. Just listen to the extent where you catch him in the act without losing your mind.
The role of the American citizen is to bear witness to the words and deeds of Barack Obama. To call him on his smearing of reality. To expose blatant acts of deception and hypocrisy. And, to hold him accountable to his oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.
