“Fundamentally Transforming the United States of America”: an update

Makes you wonder, whether Obama is right or wrong, why so many Jewish people support him. I happen to be one who has the belief that Truman and the UN made a mistake, but now that so many of the people have settled there, we have no other choice than to support, an otherwise peaceful nation, over their antagonists and enemies.

As Richard says, Obama, with his Muslim upbringing, is a danger, not only to Israel and Europe, but also to the USA.

But the true Obama keeps peeking out. He’s going to “spread the wealth around,” remember, he faulted the Supreme Court for not venturing into issues of “redistribution of wealth” and not “breaking free” from some “essential constraints” placed upon politicians by “the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.” And he also, as I keep reminding you, promised to “fundamentally transform the Untied States of America.”

To help you think about some of what that would mean, take a look at this sobering discussion between Jerry Gordon, senior editor at the New English Review, and the historian and author Richard L. Rubenstein, a contributor to the New English Review (thanks to my friend Roger L. Simon for bringing this to my attention). Dr. Rubenstein is a soft-spoken and measured commentator. But though he speaks quietly and makes his points in a sober, understated way, what he says is dynamite. Obama, he points out, is a “revolutionary” figure who is aiming to transform the “American political system and economic system” and America’s relationship to the rest of the world. He is suspicious of Europe, contemptuous of Great Britain, and hostile to Israel. In his obsequious behavior to the King of Saudi Arabia, he has underscored his deep filiation with the Muslim world. He aims, in short, for “radical transformation. He is the most radical President America has ever had.” Depressing, but necessary, viewing for this summer Sunday.
