BBHQ Boomer Essays:

The Agenda

Our Boomer-In-Charge here at BBHQ, Hershel Chicowitz, writes frequently about current events... from a boomer perspective. He is sometimes funny, sometimes provocative, sometimes a little of each. We hope you get a kick out of our Boomer Essays.

This president is driven strictly and solely by his warped agenda: The United States has been a force for evil in the world. The United States has been unfair to black people. This country was founded and became the strongest, wealthiest, and most powerful country on earth by means of slavery and stealing from the rest of the world.

OK... so we can’t stop commercial flights to and from countries stricken with Ebola. That just wouldn’t be fair. So many people are suffering there. We can’t shut them out.

But suppose... just suppose the Ebola outbreak had been in.... oh, let’s say... Israel, for example.

How fast do you suppose this president would have slammed the door on flights to and from Israel? How fast?

My point here is that President Obama is not driven by the interests of the United States, or geopolitical politics, or even practical national politics at this point.

Barack Obama has appeased our adversaries and abandoned our friends. That was neither accidental nor unintentional. It is part of the agenda.

He doesn’t care about his approval numbers; he doesn’t care about the fate of his fellow Democrats in the election. He doesn’t care about Iraq, or Afghanistan... or any middle east country... especially Israel. He doesn’t care about the void left by the United States’ withdrawal from world leadership. He doesn’t care about the 6-trillion dollars his administration will have added to the federal debt.

     

He doesn’t care about Benghazi, the fast and furious debacle, spying on journalists, trading terrorists for an army deserter, the porous Mexican border, the massive influx of illegal aliens, the failure to act promptly and responsibly to the Ebola outbreak, the repeated misconduct and malfeasance by the Secret Service, the systemic corruption by IRS officials, the many failures of Obamacare, the 500 million taxpayer dollars lost in the Solyndra failure, the false imprisonment of a U.S. Marine in Mexico, the lip federal response to the ISIS terrorist group, the failure of “cash for clunkers,” the non-existence of the promised “shovel-ready jobs,” the gross mistreatment of veterans at VA hospitals and the monumental incompetence at the VA, the failure to promote energy independence, or the misuse of 800 billion dollars in a so-called economic stimulus bill.

He doesn’t even care about the complete loss of credibility of his administration by the American people.

Barack Obama doesn’t care about the massive harm he has done to working Americans.

It is obvious now; it should be obvious to every American.

None of that matters to him.

Because it is not part of the agenda.

The Agenda

This president is driven strictly and solely by his warped agenda: Since its founding, the United States has been largely a force for evil in the world. The United States has been unfair to black people. This country was founded and became the strongest, wealthiest, and most powerful country on earth by means of slavery and stealing from the rest of the world. And, among the wealthy, it continues today. If you are successful, “you didn’t build that.”

Virtually everything the president has done is consistent with that agenda.

The agenda was revealed, in part, during his first few months in office. In Barack Obama’s first trip overseas as president he gave a series of confessional speeches revealing his view on America’s failures and shortcomings.

Confessing to the country’s weaknesses and appearing submissive to international leaders is part of the agenda, though projecting such a stature is contrary to the tone that every U.S. president before him has taken.

That, too, is part of the agenda. Other U.S. presidents were wrong. Obama firmly believes that he is right.

Early in his administration, Barack Obama confessed that he did not see the United States as an “exceptional” country... one that is worthy of leading the world.

The mess he as left in his wake is the result of the implementation of his agenda.

At the end of the Reagan administration, 85% of Americans felt good about their country. Today, only 55% do.

A poll by Politico surveyed states and districts in the most competitive congressional races. The results revealed that 64% of Americans believe “things in the U.S. feel like they are out of control right now.”

That is Barack Obama’s doing.

The methdology of the Obama agenda has been, in part, to emphasize and magnify the politicization of virtually every aspect of American life: birth control; automobiles; Christmas; displaying the flag; the ten commandments; the CDC; the IRS; the EPA; the sacred, private doctor-patient relationship; the Pledge of Allegiance; PTA bake sales; the content of public school lunches; the uniforms and the name of professional sports teams.

It’s right out of the socialist, Saul Alinsky “Rules for Radicals” credo.

The strategy of the Obama agenda is to demonize, discredit, dishonor, and destroy the values, traditions, symbols, and culture that we have enthusiastically and loyally embraced for two centuries and that have made the United States the envy of the entire free world.

When you understand the agenda, you will understand the decisions and the actions this president has taken.

And to that end, this president has been spectacularly successful.

Just look around you.

Restitution

According to the agenda, today... and for years to come, we must pay for our evils. The United States must make massive sacrifice and restitution for its history of 225 years of wrong-doing.

Here in the United States, that means instituting and promoting “social justice” — turning upside down the laws and social system that has bonded us. It means taking wealth from those who have earned it (unfairly in his view), and giving it to the ones Obama believes should have it. But mostly, it means punishing... on a massive scale, those who have used capitalism to acquire wealth. “You didn’t build that.”

“At some point, you’ve made enough money.”

Barack Obama sees it as his duty to impose that agenda on the United States and its citizens.

At the international level, it means the United States reducing its military presence to as low a level as possible. It means allowing other nations — particularly weaker nations in the middle east — to play a much larger role in shaping the geopolitical environment. As Obama sees it, we have done great harm; our time is over.

That’s the agenda, plain and simple.

Now... what are you prepared to do about it?

The BBHQ Feature Album is "Old Friends Live on Stage (Deluxe Edition) (2 CD/1 DVD)," by Simon & Garfunkel. If you were fortunate enough to see them in concert in 2003, I do not have to sell you. The concert was terrific! This album collection includes 55 songs, plus their new recording, "Citizen of the Planet," and one of the songs sung by the Everly Brothers during the concert. The DVD was recorded during their concert in Madison Square Garden in 2003. For any S&G fan, this is a must have! But then, you knew that already, didn't you?  Old Friends Live on Stage (Deluxe Edition) (2 CD/1 DVD)

The BBHQ Feature Book is “Bobby Rydell – Teen Idol on the Rocks.” This is a “behind the scenes” story of one of the boomers’ first rock n’ roll stars. Told in the first person, Bobby chronicles his short ride to the pinnacle of fame and fortune, his glide through the 70s and 80s, and how he nearly lost it all. Relax; it has a happy ending. Bobby was (and is) a “normal” Philly guy... with an absolute love of music and an amazing gift. For any fan of early rock n’ roll, it’s a wonderful story. And yes, Bobby Rydell is still on tour, playing to boomer fans all over the world. Click here for a closer look at the book.
