I guess the birth tourism industry can breathe a sigh of relief.

They only need 2/3 to do so, and if they care enough about an issue I'm sure they would find them.

Obama is just being a good little president bought and paid
for and will follow out the instructions set by George Soros*

In 2008, Soros' Shadow Party was again a major force in the movement that not only expanded the Democratic Party's congressional majorities, but also delivered the presidency to Obama

And here is just a few things that are already in progress

  • promoting the view that America is institutionally an oppressive nation
  • promoting the election of leftist political candidates throughout the United States
  • opposing virtually all post-9/11 national security measures enacted by U.S. government, particularly the Patriot Act
  • depicting American military actions as unjust, unwarranted, and immoral
  • promoting open borders, mass immigration, and a watering down of current immigration laws
  • promoting a dramatic expansion of social welfare programs funded by ever-escalating taxes
  • promoting social welfare benefits and amnesty for illegal aliens
  • defending the civil rights and liberties of suspected anti-American terrorists and their abetters
  • financing the recruitment and training of future activist leaders of the political Left
  • advocating America's unilateral disarmament and/or a steep reduction in its military spending
  • opposing the death penalty in all circumstances
  • promoting socialized medicine in the United States
  • promoting the tenets of radical environmentalism, whose ultimate goal, as writer Michael Berliner has explained, is "not clean air and clean water, [but] rather ... the demolition of technological/industrial civilization"
  • bringing American foreign policy under the control of the United Nations
  • promoting racial and ethnic preferences in academia and the business world alike
  • promoting taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand
  • advocating stricter gun-control measures
  • advocating the legalization of marijuana
"Life's tough......it's even tougher if you're stupid." -- John Wayne

"We live in the greatest nation in the history of the world.
I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it." -- Barack Obama

Why?

Unfortunately, we are now beginning to understand what the second one means and what the first says about us.

To close for me

It's very clear that this administration really does not have
Americas best interest at heart

His (Obamas) actions over the last eighteen months are
a good idea what his motives are !
