Before the election of Barry “Almighty”, the American people had never before chosen a man so ill equipped to hold the office to which he had been elected. But not only that, they had also apparently never before elected someone who possessed such a high opinion of himself, to the point where he views himself as being nearly God-like. You see, Barry has come to view no other person as suited as he to be the leader of this once great nation. And he has now made it quite clear that even the election of his successor will not prevent him from doing, or saying, whatever he feels is necessary when it comes to what his successor may have planned.
And Barry could not have made his position any clearer than he did in his final weekly address of 2016 as he made it clearer than ever that he won't retire quietly once Donald Trump is sworn in as president. Couching his address to the nation as assurance that he will remain committed to defending the "progress" achieved by his administration, Barry made it crystal clear that he intends to be a thorn in President Trump's side after the official handover of power on January. 20. And his rationale for doing so has very little, if anything, to with what’s actually best for the country that he was elected to lead for the last eight years.
As has so often been the case over the course of those last eight years, it’s always, and I do mean always, about him. Offering the clearest indication yet of his plan to be active on the political scene after he is ostensibly back in private life, Barry said Saturday, "As I prepare to take on the even more important role of citizen, know that I will be there with you every step of the way to ensure that this country forever strives to live up to the incredible promise of our founding — that all of us are created equal, and all of us deserve every chance to live out our dreams." He speaks of the promise of our founding and yet has worked tirelessly to undermine it.
The words were an implicit rebuke of the inequality and retrograde policies that Democrats claim will be on the agenda of Trump and the Republicans when they take over what will be a unified Republican government next month. Back when Barry expected, and most polls indicated, that Hitlery was going to win the White House, Barry had gone so far as to suggest that he was actually looking forward to a quiet retirement. But now that the election didn’t exactly go as planned, Barry says his plans have changed considerably. The unmistakable suggestion is that Barry claims he needs to stay active to guard the nation against Trump's predations.
Many of Barry's main ‘accomplishments’ and priorities, such as Obamacare and a green agenda hailed by environmental activists, are on Trump's list for demolition. Barry and the Democrats see the clear prospect that his legacy will be reduced sharply by the incoming government. And Barry's Saturday speech shows that he does not intend to simply stand by and let that happen. Touting what he claims as gains made in expanding health insurance coverage, job creation, bringing troops back to the U.S. from Afghanistan and Iraq, and killing Osama bin Laden, Barry said that the country has "made extraordinary progress as a country these past eight years."
Barry’s Saturday address was little more than a dogged defense of all that HE has done for or to America since HE was first sworn into office on the fateful day back in January, 2009. He said income is rising, poverty is falling and claimed the auto industry is "resurgent." And in turning to diplomacy, Barry said, "We shut down Iran's nuclear weapons program, opened up a new chapter with the people of Cuba, and brought nearly 200 nations together around a climate agreement that could save this planet for our kids." And, of course, he also gave a nod to the 2015 Supreme Court ruling to grant nationwide marriage equality.
And in this his final address of 2016 Barry said, "We've made extraordinary progress as a country these past eight years." He went on to say, "And here's the thing: none of it was inevitable. It was the result of tough choices we made, and the result of your hard work and resilience." Looking ahead, Barry said the task of moving forward on progress falls to people working together. Barry thanked Americans for their support and said "almost every country on Earth sees America as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago." But such a statement bears a much closer resemblance to wishful thinking than it does to any actual facts.
It’s in looking back at what Barry describes as being extraordinary progress what we see is the lowest labor participation since the 1970s, nearly 95 million Americans out of the labor force, the worst economic recovery since the 1940s, the lowest home ownership rate in 50 years, nearly 13 million more Americans on food stamps, over 43 million Americans living in poverty, a median household income lower now than in the 1970s, 1 in 5 families without someone in the workforce, 1 in 6 men ages 18-24 are either incarcerated or out of the workforce and more debt than all other president combined. This is what Barry sees as “extraordinary progress?”
Besides his refusal to go quietly into the night, as have other presidents before him, Barry is also very actively involved in what can only be described as an aggressive campaign of sabotage against Donald Trump. And while he may claim that he’s only seeking to protect the country from what he claims is Trump’s dangerous policies, his true motivation is more likely something much more ominous, even sinister. Because he knows, he has to know, that if Trump becomes successful in his effort to “make America great again” he will also succeed in revealing just how much of a colossal failure, and unmitigated disaster, Barry’s policies have truly been.
It would seem the Barry has been going out of his way, of late, to make things as difficult as he can for our new president. Whether it’s his attempt to bring about a new cold war with Russia, his ban on oil drilling both on public lands and off shore, his blatant national-monument land grab, his choosing to eliminating the national immigration registry, his orchestrating the great Guantanamo jailbreak or doing all that he can to depict Trump’s election as being nothing more than a disaster for America and the world, Barry is proving himself to be little more than a very dedicated saboteur. A role that you can very plainly see that he very much relishes.
Meanwhile, Barry's crimes number, quite literally, into the thousands. The comforting thing is, anything the Barry has done via fiat can be quickly undone with a single stroke of Trump's pen. This is the problem with Barry ruling by executive order rather than governing by legislation, his so-called "accomplishments" are not worth the paper on which they are written. Barry's totalitarian rule via non-representative fiat is smoke in a hurricane and will not override representative government. I very much miss my Constitutional Republic and desperately want it back! And I pray every day that Mr. Trump is up to the very daunting challenge that lies ahead of him.
