Obama: The Antithesis of an American Patriot

Allow me to provide a reality check on his comments and assertions.

Mark Alexander · Nov. 11, 2016

On Wednesday, we offered post-election numbers and analysis on the response from Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton.

Barack Obama took a break from eating crow Wednesday to offer his insights into the defeat of his “third term.” Allow me to provide a reality check on his comments and assertions.

Obama said, “Eight years ago, President Bush and I had some pretty significant differences. But President Bush’s team could not have been more professional or more gracious in making sure we had a smooth transition so that we could hit the ground running.” For the record, Clinton’s team could not have been more unprofessional or ungracious when turning the keys over to George Bush.

Obama said, “One thing you realize quickly in this job is that the presidency is bigger than any of us.” For the record, he may have realized that, but Obama acted from day one as if he were bigger than the job.

Obama said, “Hillary Clinton has lived an extraordinary life of public service. She was a great first lady. She was an outstanding senator for the state of New York. And she could not have been a better secretary of state.” For the record, Hillary Clinton has served nothing but her own criminal enterprises. Her lifelong record of malfeasance and the catastrophic humanitarian crisis she and Obama created in the Middle East is their foreign policy legacy.

Obama said, “A lot of Americans look up to her. Her candidacy and nomination was historic and sends a message to our daughters all across the country that they can achieve at the highest levels of politics.” For the record, Clinton looks down on a lot of America.

Obama said, “We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We are Americans first. We’re patriots first.” For the record (ROFL — gotta catch my breath), Obama said “patriots”? Barack Hussein Obama has been on the wrong side of American Patriots since his childhood indoctrination by Frank Marshall Davis. His lifelong association with Marxists is why his first political fundraiser for Illinois state senate was hosted by his Marxist neighbors, William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. And it went downhill from there.

(Josh Earnest also got that memo: “We’re Democrats and Republicans, but we are Americans and patriots first.” Ditto, Josh.)

Obama said, “The country needs — a sense of unity; a sense of inclusion; a respect for our institutions, our way of life, rule of law; and a respect for each other.” For the record (ROFL, gotta catch my breath again), Obama said “rule of law”? Obama has done everything he could do in eight years to undermine Rule of Law and advance the tyrannical rule of men.

Obama said, “Everyone on my team should be extraordinarily proud of everything that they have done, and so should all the Americans…” For the record, no.

Obama said, “All the important work that’s done by moms and dads and families and congregations in every state. The work of perfecting this union.” For the record, Obama has done everything he could do in eight years to undermine marriage, family and faith.

Obama said, “We all go forward, with a presumption of good faith in our fellow citizens — because that presumption of good faith is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy.” For the record, we are not a “democracy,” we are a Republic, and no one has done more to presume bad faith on the part of opponents than Obama.

Obama said, “I am looking forward to doing everything that I can to make sure that the next president is successful in that. I want to make sure that handoff is well-executed, because ultimately we’re all on the same team.” For the record, no you aren’t, and no we aren’t.

A few final thoughts this week. I have not spoken to a single “Never Trumper” who, when asked “would you rather have Trump or Clinton in January,” has responded, Clinton. To a person they have affirmed Trump and his plan of action.

As for all of Clinton’s despondent lemmings, they are case studies in cognitive dissonance, and arrested emotional development at all ages.

Regarding all the chatter about “media polling,” and the coefficient claim that “nobody but Trump understood the underlying voter sentiments,” wrong. The mainstream media didn’t misread opinion; they tried to dictate it. Nobody was more surprised about Donald Trump’s victory than Donald Trump, but for those of us outside the Beltway and media towers, the grassroots sentiments have been plain since Obama duped voters into seating him in 2008.

And a parting word for Hillary Clinton — you left Americans to die in Benghazi in order to prop up Obama’s 2012 faux re-election mantra, “Al-Qa'ida is on the run.” We will NEVER forget.

And on that note, today is Veterans Day. If you missed these posts, I invite you to read my most recent Veterans Day profile on the current generation of young Patriots, “Honoring Those Who Have Earned It,” and my recent profile on Medal of Honor recipient Desmond Doss, subject of the best movie in years, “Hacksaw Ridge.”

“It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.” –Army Veteran Charles M. Province
