The resent headlines around the collection by the NSA of “telephony metada” is a direct result of the inhibitions and restrictions  imposed on a national security apparatus by progressives inability to condone the profiling required to efficiently identify security threats by Islamist terrorists.

In an effort that has resulted in extreme political correctness across all strata of our government and broader society we have erred to the point of facilitating terrorism through our unwillingness to focus our security resources on the few logical proponents of such acts at the expense of our broader personal freedoms and right to privacy.

Political correctness has accelerated under the progressive Obama administration as evidenced by a white house ruling cabal that expresses their lack of knowledge to the administrations encroachment on our freedoms and then when the secrets become visible attempt to limit their impact for “national security” reasons.

Four years ago I wrote about the threat of progressive fascism as represented by Barack Obama and his administration. Four years later we see an administration that has continued to propagate their progressive push toward the elimination of our most basic freedoms.

It is time to recognize that our politically correct, overly sanitized society is contributing to not only the erosion of our individual freedoms but is resulting in a potentially homogeneous  citizenry in which a government bureaucracy stifles the very spirit that launched this nation on its path toward freedom nearly 250 years ago.

It may be politically incorrect to profile young muslim males when we are at the airport, train station, or numerous other public venues. But ask yourself does it make sense to eliminate the privacy of hundreds of millions of our citizens to maintain the ;political correctness required to protect the rights of  a few young muslim, generally males who have no goal other than to destroy you and your way of life.

The American public is awakening to the health care reform scam that Barack Obama and a subservient Democratic Congress are attempting to impose on a nation that does not want the change Barack Obama and his elitist progressive administration are determined to enact.

The public is speaking out across the country and saying no to Obamacare and serving notice to Congress that its members will be held accountable for the decisions they have made to date as well as in the future. Members of Congress are continually campaigning and with the  2010 elections only fifteen months away those with an eye on reelection will be listening to their constituents during the August recess. 

 The voices they hear will unnerve them. The American public in what happens once in a generation, if at all ,wants to be included in the decision process that takes place in Washington. Their voices will be heard at gatherings all across the land. They want entry into the elitist halls of government where special interest groups have placed a stranglehold on Congress and the Administration to further a progressive agenda that will bankrupt our nation’s spirit as well as our economy. In their zeal to transform this nation from an economy based on  free enterprise, broad individual freedoms and a limited role for government to a socialist nation, that will limit individual freedoms and expand the reach of government into every aspect of our lives.

Barack Obama has been slipping in the polls the past several weeks as Americans become disenchanted with his policies. As his favorability rating weakens in the polls it has provided an inverse reaction on Wall Street. As CEO4ADAY predicted in a blog on July 14th, Obama’s decline in the polls would ignite a rally on Wall Street as investors gained confidence that this, the most radical President to inhabit the White House, will fail in his quest to transform America into a Eurotopian socialist state.

The traditions of America consistently flow from the center. When the nation swings too far to the right or the left in an attempt to right an imbalance it eventually finds its way to the center or right of center. The cultural fabric of America has under gone vast changes over the past 233 years since the original 13 colonies declared their independence from the oppression and tyranny of a government that existed to be served by the people rather than a servant of the people.

Though our cultural fabric has changed through the years, the ideal that is  America as the benchmark for freedom, opportunity and a bulwark of  individualism has inspired the dreams of people through out the world. The administration of Barack Obama has a vision for a new America. An America that does not stand apart as a beacon of freedom in the world or a model of  free enterprise but rather exists to serve as a model for the world of a nation that views the quest for moderation as the American dream.  An America in which individual choices and freedoms are secondary to the greater will of the people as determined by an elite political class in Washington.

Americans are rejecting the vision of America offered by Barack Obama and promoted in Congress by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.  They are again speaking out for individual freedoms. The voices of Americans through out the land have been uncorked and will not return to an easy quiet until the center is firm.

According to the Rasmussen Daily tracking Poll, for the first time since Barack Obama assumed the Office of the President, more Americans that are likely voters disapprove  than currently approve of the President’s performance.

The president has been in a campaign mode since his inauguration, as he rushed a stimulus bill through Congress, that is increasingly perceived as reckless legislation, continues to promote a cap and trade tax and is attempting to burden Americans with a government controlled health care plan.

In addition, he has taken the campaign Global as he completed apology tours through out Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. Most recently he has created a political controversy by wading into the deep waters of racial politics by weighing in on the arrest of his ‘friend” Skip Gates a Harvard Professor by a Cambridge Police Sergeant. Gates decided that the officer was being racist and Obama referred to the actions by the Cambridge police as “stupidly”.

The public  have been inundated with Obama in the  media and may now be withdrawing from the Obama euphoria created by the media as they hold the President accountable for governing as opposed to campaigning. This President’s lack of experience did not serve as an editor over his ego and as such Obama launchedan aggressive progressive agenda with a blitz on Congress and the electorate not seen since the Battle of Britain. The blitz has failed and the polls are reflecting the desire by the public for the President to veeraway from his progressive agenda and his path to socialism. As has been the historical tendency in this nation Americans expect the President to move toward the center and govern accordingly.

Barack Obama has placed himself in the midst of a dialogue on on race relations between the Black community and law enforcement due to comments he made on Wednesday evening during a nationally televised press conference. The President was commenting on the arrest of  Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. an African American by a white police officer Sergeant James Crowley from the Cambridge Police Department. Sergeant Crowley arrested  Professor Gates for disorderly conduct in front of Gates home in Cambridge, Massachusetts and Gates claimed he had been subject to racial profiling.

President Obama addressed the issue toward the end of his press conference which, with this single exception, was staged to address his demand for health care reform. During the press conference he attempted to reset the agenda by calling for health insurance as opposed to health care reform. When questioned about the incident in Cambridge, in pure professorial mode Obama chose to take the opportunity to speak about racial profiling and commented that the arrested of his friend “Skip” Gates was an act of stupidity on the part of the Cambridge police department.

Subsequently law enforcement associations around the nation have taken humbrage with President Obama’s remarks and many have officers have come to the support of Seargant Crowley. Obama has now spoken with eah man and for all intent has apologised to the Cambridge police officer.

The President made a rookie mistake by injecting himself into this incident. However, this is a President who has attempted to be omnipresent by injecting himself into Americans lives several times a day with his fondness for the communications media. He also considers himself to be the Professor in Chief who is always willing to endow his wisdom upon an eager audience.

The President suffers from a lack of leadership experience as evidenced by his intrusion into a local issue when he is in the midst of an economic crisis and two wars. An experienced leader understands the impact of his comments. By commenting on the Cambridge issue Obama has again served notice that his goal is to be the solutions provider in chief as opposed to governing. Obama and his administration need to reset their agenda to focus on the economy and the President should begin to limit his desire for starring in a reality show based in the White House.

Barack Obama will be recognized in American history as the first African American President who through his election tore down any walls remaining between minorities and the White House. However, unless he begins to recognize that his progressive  policies will destroy our capitalist based economy, he will also be recognized as the President who destroyed our great free enterprise based society and saddled America with the burden of perpetual welfare.

Obama to date has skated by on the support of a media seduced by his charisma and the promise of hope and change. His Presidency is failing on both counts. Rather than hope he has taken once again to casting blame on the current economy on his predecessor George W. Bush while reminding us that our economy is in dire economic straits with unemployment expected to continue to rise. His stimulus package which has failed to provide any economic stimulus was a fraud perpetrated upon an American public that was eager to support this new young President. He continues to expand on the fraud by attempting to reset the rationale for creating the stimulus package that was presented to the public by the President and his administration.

The change that Obama spoke of was to be evidenced by a President and an administration that was willing to reach across the aisle thereby tearing down the political barriers that prevented legislative progress in the past and providing a template that would provide progress by incorporating the best minds from both sides od the aisle as opposed to the partisan legislation that has been the standard for American politics.

The stimulus plan passed without a single favorable vote by a member of the Republican party. The Pelosi led and Obama inspired House chose to exclude Republican input entirely since the Democrats had won the election in 2008. Obama in his zeal to transform America from a capitalist based economy to a social welfare state based economy has become consumed by the traditional politics of a typical Chicago politico. The change that Obama has brought to our nation is the change of an America based on hope and prosperity and the will of the individual to an American culture that is wilting under the hammer of a federal government out of control.

Barack Obama is destroying this nation. He was elected by a people filled with good intent on a promise of yes we can. A people willing to give this inexperienced charismatic campaigner a chance to improve upon the American way of  life. Obama proved that he could run a campaign. It is time for this President to stop campaigning and begin governing. It is time for this President to stop speaking and start listening. It is time to slow down the agenda and focus on the immediate needs of the economy with a sense of urgency that any CEO would understand and implement.

Americans need to return to work. Banks need to be able to extend credit to both businesses and individuals. The housing market needs to stabilize. The Federal government needs to get out of the business of competing with business and focus on maintaining the safety and security of this nation. Barack Obama needs to begin lead this nation toward a path that will preserve our way of life rather than eliminate it. Barack obama has jumped the shark and is taking the nation with him along a perilous path. Someone in the Democratic leadership or in his administration needs to speak up and tell the emperor he has no clothes on.

The House passed the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 by a narrow margin on Friday as the attention of both the nation and the world was turning from the abuse of the Iranian regime to the death of the King of Pop Michael Jackson. The bill which is a cornerstone of the Obama progressive agenda required the votes of 8 Republicans to vote in favor of the bill as 44 Democrats voted against it with a final tally of 219 to 212 for HR 2454.

This legislation should it become law will impose e clean energy tax upon the American Public that will amount to the single highest tax increase ever impose upon American tax payers. Given the narrow margin of passage in the House it is increasingly doubtful though that this bill will pass the Senate despite the urgent pleadings of Barack Obama.

The bill, which proposes its will on every aspect of American life and will create a bureaucratic nightmare, will also cost this nation millions of jobs more then the mythical Green  jobs it purports to create. Nancy Pelosi called it transformational legislation while doing Obama’s bidding and she is indeed correct. It is transformational in that it moves America further away from a free enterprise based economy toward the central planning models of the totalitarian economic models that failed in the twentieth century.

Americans may fight back against the tide of environmental and progressive fascism by contacting their representatives in the Senate and urging them to vote no on this bill when it comes before the Senate this fall. The nation may have been distracted when the House voted but we must wake up and act before this legislation is allowed to further cripple our economy.

White House rumours indicate that Barack Obama is distraught over the shocking death of the pop icon. Jackson, was rumored to be considered the leading candidate by the Obama administration for the position of music czar. Obama appeared distracted this morning during meetings with Angela Merkel the German Chancellor which was later attributed to his concern for the loss of Jackson, his family and his fans.

The timing could not have been worse for Obama, a long time Jackson fan who is also a Merkel fan and pines for an American political and social model that emulates the German model a leading Eurotopian state. In recent weeks Jackson had apparently emerged from a short list of music icons that included, Whitney Houston, Eminem and Lil’ Kim as the potential music czar.

Jackson, considered by many to be the greatest musical performer ever, was attempting a comeback after languishing on the pop sidelines for years due to numerous financial and legal issues. The performer, with a global notoriety, was preparing for 50 concert dates for a tour of the United Kingdom.

Jackson’s death made headlines around the Globe and has dominated the American media at a time that the House is debating and preparing to vote on the largest tax increase ever proposed for American taxpayers through the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009. Despite the impact of the death of the King of Pop Obama is expected to be monitoring the legislation before the House today and it is anticipated he will place the appointment of a music czar on an indefinite hold.
