Mission Accomplished: Obama Gets Americans Killed to Kill the Constitution
Are you surprised that Vogue's Anna Wintour is squeezing fashionistas to go all out for Obama? It makes sense, since the icy-eyed editrix knows style, and Obama certainly has a presidential style that's all his own. After all, Obama is the only commander-in-chief to ever manipulate Americans into getting killed so that he can kill the Constitution.
We first saw Obama's murderous stylings in Operation Fast and Furious, a brazenly criminal scheme in which he cuddled up to Mexican drug gangs, giving them thousands of state-of-the-art firearms. Obama's narco-killer partners then obligingly used their new presents to murder U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata, as well as hundreds of Mexican men, women and children.
The grieving parents of the four Americans just slaughtered in Libya might want to contact the parents of slain ICE Agent Jaime Zapata and get the name of their lawyer. Mary and Amador Zapata have filed a $25 million wrongful death suit against the U.S. government, claiming that Jaime Zapata informed his supervisors he had misgivings about the safety of his Mexican trip, but was ordered to go anyway. "All of these legitimate concerns were put aside... and agents Avila and Zapata were required to follow orders," the lawyers wrote. Sources say Zapata was investigating Fast and Furious at the time of his murder.
Sound familiar? It should, because Obama has now refined his Fast and Furious killing techniques into the wildly successful butchery of Benghazi. Let's review what we know. First, Obama denied repeated requests for more security from the increasingly desperate Libyan ambassador, Christopher Stevens. Second, he blithely skipped 60% of his intelligence briefings, including every single one in the critical week leading up to 9/11. (Just to be consistent, he also skipped his briefing on 9/12, the day after the murders of Ambassador Stevens and three other brave Americans.)
And, in a moment that will surely go down in American history, on 9/11/12, when terrorists launched their fatal attack on our Benghazi consulate, Obama denied any military support to the surrounded Americans, ensuring that they would die. As Tyrone Woods, Glenn Doherty, Sean Smith, and Ambassador Stevens engaged in a brutal seven-hour battle to the death, Obama abandoned them to waft off to a contented night's sleep in his feather-soft presidential bed.
The next day, Obama awoke to the rousing news that his ambassador had been raped, killed, and dragged through the Libyan streets by a triumphant mob. With his Mission Accomplished, Obama celebrated by jetting off to Las Vegas, later yukking it up with David Letterman and partying with Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
"They refused to pull the trigger," said Charles Woods, father of the murdered ex-Navy SEAL, Tyrone. "Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son."
The tragedy of brave heroes like Tyrone Woods, Glenn Doherty, Brian Terry, and Jaime Zapata is that they were doomed to serve under Barack Hussein Obama. And Obama's signature style is to foment bloody anti-American chaos abroad that justifies ditching the Constitution at home.
It's a constant irritant for aspiring tyrants like Obama that we Americans retain a certain fondness for the Constitution. The solution is to bully us out of it with vivid theatrics that lead to hysterical moral hectoring. So Fast and Furious became the prop to shame Americans into abandoning our Second Amendment right to bear arms. Always glad to help, Obama's media operatives repeated his cynically contrived claim that "90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that lay in our shared border. So we have responsibilities as well."
And now we get to Obama's recent Libyan charade. Both he and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton immediately pretended to believe that the murderous 9/11 terrorist attacks on our Mideast embassies were caused by Americans' excessive use of free speech. Everything had been lovingly prepared for such an eventuality. An obscure anti-Mohammed YouTube video by an unknown filmmaker had been pre-selected (and possibly doctored) to serve as scapegoat.
And so, as our Cairo embassy was assaulted by terrorists, Obama's minions were primed to go: tweeting an apology to the homicidal mobs outside their doors that "The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims." Hillary followed through, using taxpayer funds to broadcast apologies for American free speech on Pakistani television, and Obama grandly materialized before the UN to proclaim the single strangest sentence ever uttered by an American president: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
And, thus, with a midnight knock on his California door, the offending filmmaker was arrested and hustled into federal custody until after the election. Remember the first reports about his ethnic identity? We were told he was an "Israeli Jew" whose film was funded by "100 Jewish donors." How marvelous it would have been for Obama if he could have successfully convinced us that brave Americans were killed because of incitement by rich Jews!
Alas for Obama, that particular story fell apart, but his attack on our First Amendment rights proceeded beautifully with the help of his celebrity acolytes. George Clooney handsomely pouted that freedom of speech was "unfortunate" because it allowed "idiots" such as the jailed filmmaker to speak. And Bette Midler tweeted her sincere hopes that the filmmaker would be "charged with murder."
Meanwhile, in London, we were treated to an exciting preview of what might unfold in a second Obama term, when 10,000 Muslims protested outside Google headquarters, demanding that Google take down the offending video.
The whole phony shebang was engineered to intimidate us, so that the next time there's a Times Square bomber or Fort Hood assassin, you and I will stop to worry before we speak. Will Bette Midler tweet calls for our arrest? Will thousands of Muslims camp on our doorsteps, howling for our heads? Maybe we better just forget about our First Amendment rights and shut up and take it.
The Americans martyred in Libya died to advance Obama's anti-Constitutional agenda. In the wake of that catastrophe, Obama's popularity has plummeted, along with his re-election chances. No longer the dashing cool guy in the perfectly-tailored suit, Obama may soon be wearing Hawaiian shirts full-time, as he lounges around his brand-new beachfront estate in Oahu. Personally, I'd rather see him model the latest orange jumpsuit in Guantanamo.
