Obama Decisions (SOD)
Within hours of taking the oath of office, Barack
Hussein Obama gave us all a glimpse of the "change" he promised for
America. Stunning his supporters and confirming conservatives' nightmares, Obama
is starting to realize he's in deep trouble.
Here is a list, in no particular
order, of just some of the stupid decisions and executive
orders Obama has made. This list will undoubtedly grow very long.
the prison at Guantanamo within a year
Not that the prison should not be
closed; it's just that we're in the midst of a war on terror and these are prisoners
of war, not criminals. Obama needs a place to put these terrorists who are not
covered by the Geneva Convention as they were not military members of an enemy
Obama first suggested that they could be sent to the Camp Pendleton
Marine Base in southern California. When it was pointed out that the base is home
to families of Marines who were killed by these terrorists, Obama then suggested
the base at Miramar. Miramar is in the middle of San Diego, a Republican stronghold.
Obama's actual agenda is to punish Republicans, not simply close Gitmo. The fact
is, if we're going to keep some of these prisoners under lock and key, why wouldn't
we just keep them where they are?
- Eliminate harsh interrogations
It seems that Obama thinks that foreign terrorists have the
same rights as criminals do in the United States. He thinks that scaring them
with water boarding and dogs and humiliating them is just too severe. Hey, Obama,
it's not like we're cutting of body parts or burning them. These are the same
SOBs that kill innocent Americans simply because they are Americans.
down anti-terror operations of the CIA
This decision is by far the most
destructive. When Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton curtailed the CIA operations we
experienced the worst domestic terrorism incidents. Once President George W Bush
restored operations and strengthened them, we were safe for the past seven years.
Look for another major act of terror on US soil within the next few months.
US taxpayers to fund foreign abortions
This was aimed at appeasing his
far-left kooks. Americans, the majority of which are against abortions, are being
forced to fund foreign medical operations, when healthcare costs are out of control
in our own country.
- Allow all records of former presidents
to be released
Of course, Obama was sure to exclude himself from this executive
order. His goal was to allow the far left access to records to attack George W
Bush, while Obama keeps his hands clean. Not only will this information be abused
to attack Bush, but it will also enable America's enemies access to sensitive
information that will threaten national security. Besides being very hypocritical,
this Obama decision will come back to haunt him.
- Freeze the
pay of his administration
This is just more of Obama's symbolism over substance.
All of those in his administration are wealthy no matter how you define the word.
This "order" was not an order to actually freeze their pay. It was an
order to produce a report on such an action. Don't look for anyone in Obama's
administration to actually have their pay frozen. If Obama truly wanted to make
an order for the economic wellbeing of the country, he would have ordered that
no taxes be raised and no new taxes implemented.
and open government
Again, Barack Hussein
Obama excludes himself from this order. He won't even release his birth certificate,
school records, tax returns or medical records. Try doing that when you
look for a job. So much for transparency in government.
to ethical behavior by members of the Executive Branch
This order included
banning lobbyists from Obama's administration. Immediately after making this order,
Obama broke it and named lobbyist William
Lynn the second in command of the Pentagon as Deputy Secretary of Defense.
States to Set Their Own Auto Emissions Standards
Reversing an earlier decision
of the Bush administration, Obama is allowing California to set emissions standards
beyond that of what the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires. California
already has the strictest air emissions standards in the country and the highest
costs for yearly registration. Since automakers can not afford to make cars with
different emissions standards and California has the most car sales in the nation,
every car will cost more no matter where you live. Say hello to your first Obama
tax increase disguised as a state fee.
- Lifted the Decades-old
Ban on Photographed Coverage of Military Caskets
For decades, there has
been a ban on allowing the media to photograph military casket ceremonies at Dover
Air Force Base. Obama has reversed that ban. He is using our dead heroes to further
his anti-American agenda. Obama thinks that showing caskets carrying our brave
soldiers will cause the American public to lose its resolve against the war on
terror. In fact it will simply embolden our enemies. Obama has no regard for our
military and their families. If he truly wanted "transparency" in government,
he would release his records.
the Ban on Federal Funding of Stem Cell Research
George W Bush banned federal
funding of stem cell research and for good cause. To listen the liberal media
and the whiners on the left, you'd think he had outlawed stem cell research. No,
he just didn't let taxpayer money fund a boondoggle that relied on a huge supply
of dead babies. Contrary to what the Obama and the left will have you think, there
have been absolutely no breakthroughs in stem cell research with regards to healing
paralysis, which was its main goal. As Bush correctly predicted, science found
new ways to do their research and also discovered how stem cells were not all
that they were cracked up to be. With Obama's reversal of the ban, stem cell research
using dead babies will continue its true goal: the unnecessary killing of the
unborn at taxpayer expense.
- Stop Calling Terrorists Captured
on the Battlefield "Enemy Combatants"
Obama ordered Eric
Holder, his Attorney General of "nation of cowards" fame, to state
that we can no longer call terrorists that were captured while engaged in battle
"enemy combatants." Obama also stripped the executive branch of the
power to order such people deemed to be dangerous captured and held without trial.
So, are they to be called what they are, "Obama Supporters?" Of course,
as everything else Obama and his minions say, this is symbolism over substance.
