Whether you’ve seen 2016: Obama’s America or not, you must read Dinesh D’Souza‘s companion volume and the follow-up to The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2012). In Obama’s America, D’Souza builds on and, occasionally, corrects what he wrote in The Roots of Obama’s Rage. He thoroughly supports his thesis that Obama’s ideology is driven by the anti-colonial “dreams from [his] father.”

After you read The Roots of Obama’s Rage, you should pick up Spreading the Wealth: How Obama Is Robbing the Suburbs To Pay for the Cities (New York: Sentinel-Penguin, 2012) by Stanley Kurtz, the author of Radical-in-Chief. When I started reading Spreading the Wealth, I was wondering how I would reconcile Kurtz’s theory with D’Souza’s. Finally, on pages 51-52, Kurtz explains the relationship between neocolonialism and regionalism.

Video: “Dishonorable Disclosures“
Intelligence and Special Operations forces are furious and frustrated at how President Obama and those in positions of authority have exploited their service for political advantage. Countless leaks, interviews and decisions by the Obama Administration and other government officials have undermined the success of our Intelligence and Special Operations forces and put future missions and personnel at risk.
The unwarranted and dangerous public disclosure of Special Forces Operations is so serious — that for the first time ever — former operators have agreed to risk their reputations and go ‘on the record’ in a special documentary titled “Dishonorable Disclosures.” Its goal is to educate America about serious breaches of security and prevent them from ever happening again.
Use of military ranks, titles & photographs in uniform does not imply endorsement of the Dept of the Army or the Department of Defense. All individuals are no longer in active service with any federal agency or military service.

I believe it was Sean Hannity I heard call The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2012) by David Limbaugh an encyclopedia. That is a good description. The book should be considered a reference work and kept on a handy shelf rather than read from beginning to end.
It includes a lot of good information but too much and too much detail for the casual reader to remember.
Limbaugh covers Obama’s war on
- the right
- the disobedient
- our culture and values
- the economy
- our future
- other energy resources
- national security
- the office of the President

Edward Klein‘s new book, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2012), is interesting, informative, and readable, but it is not objective. Klein doesn’t hesitate to insert his own opinion about Obama and his decisions and actions. Unlike Screwed by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, which I recently read and wrote about, The Amateur does have an index and a list of sources; however, there are no notes or parenthetical citations, and some of the people quoted aren’t even named. Those deficiencies certainly bring the book’s and author’s credibility into question.

In The Blueprint (Guilford, CT: Lyons Press, 2010), Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski outline “Obama’s Plan to Subvert the Consittuion and Build an Imperial Presidency” by
- appointing czars
- packing the courts
- making administrative rules and issuing executive orders
- adopting foreign and international laws
- building a domestic army
- taking over our health-care system
- taking control of large companies
- pushing through cap and tax
- passing stimulus bills to spend money on the liberals’ wish list
- shifting the tax burden a minority of citizens
- granting amnesty to illegal aliens
- passing card check
- politicizing the census
- giving Washington, DC, a voting representative and two senators
- allowing same-day voter registration and “universal” registration of people on government welfare rolls
- restricting gun ownership
- co-opting the media
- reinstating the “Fairness Doctrine”
- silencing his opposition
- creating a secular society with government controlling what children are taught (256-63)
Blackwell and Klukowski explain how Obama and his cronies are putting this plan into action, whether his actions are constitional or not, and how conservatives should respond. Their proposed responses are essentially limited to lawsuits and election results.
I don’t know that Obama is as much a planner as he is an opportunist taking advantage of the situation he found himself in. Perhaps George Soros is behind him pulling the strings.
I believe that as lawyers Blackwell and Klukowski are putting too much faith in the court system, particularly the Supreme Court. As they explain, the Supreme Court arrogated the “power of judicial review” (i.e., the ability to determine if a law was constitutional or not) in Marbury v. Madison (59-60). The Founders did not give the Supreme Court that power in the Constitution. (See Article 3.)
As stated in the Tenth Amendment, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Since the power to determine the constitutionality of laws passed by Congress or orders issued by the president is not delegated to one of the three branches of the federal government “by the Constitution nor prohibited by it to the States,” that power must belong to the states or to the people.
The states have the power to withdraw from the union or to use nullification, which is the process of a “a state government using the tenth amendment to reject federal laws within their state” (“Is Nullification American?“). If it becomes necessary to use secession or nullification to defeat the socialists’ plan to our country into the United Socialist States of America, then that is what we must do.
