Barack Hussein Obama famously said the following, in a campaign interview:
We’re gonna punish our enemies, and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us <Barack Obama, October 2010> <CBS News>
This comment, and the sentiment behind it, is entirely consistent with Barack Obama’s Leninist/Stalinist beliefs. As John Boehner pointed out at the time, previous presidents of the United States used the word “enemies” only in the context of global terrorists and foreign dictators, not U.S. citizens.
When Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush used the word ‘enemy,’ they reserved it for global terrorists and foreign dictators — enemies of the United States. Enemies of freedom. Enemies of our country. Today, sadly, we have president who uses the word ‘enemy’ for fellow Americans — fellow citizens. He uses it for people who disagree with his agenda…<source>
Chris Christie, an alleged Republican, famously praised mr. Obama and hugged him.
And now we know why: these two men share the same political philosophy, which is that the state and its power are tools with which to lord over subject populations, often for petty grievances and in vindictive ways.
In Obama’s case, we have his renegade Justice Department, and of course his IRS, which was instructed to target Republican groups for harsh treatment.
Chris Christie is apparently a chip off the old block and now embroiled in a scandal of his own, having apparently created several days’ worth of massive traffic jams in Fort Lee as political retribution against the Mayor there who did not support Christie’s for re-election in 2012.
Internal emails released Wednesday strongly suggest that a top aide to New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie orchestrated massive traffic problems in Fort Lee, New Jersey, last fall as an act of political retribution against the city’s Democratic mayor. For months, Christie and his administration have denied allegations that road closures in Fort Lee were politically motivated. <source>
Digging a little further, there appears to be a narrative around New Jersey politics, namely that thuggery is the way they do it in the Garden State. The LA Times had this to say about it:
In the Garden State, political bosses have never gone out of style, corruption cases pile up more victims than the Sopranos, and elbow-to-the-face tactics… The state has an outsized history of sleaze and outright public thievery. <source>
Does this description of “corruption, sleaze and outright public thievery” remind you of Chicago politics?
You bet it does.
And so the famous hug between Chris Christie and Barack Obama makes much more sense now than it did then.
These are two men who were raised in political cultures of corruption, payback, and citizens-be-damned collateral damage.
They are emotional, vindictive, and petty, and they will use their power for personal agendas, against the very citizens who elected them, and especially against citizens who do not agree with them.
These tyrants are exactly the kind of men that the Founding Fathers wished to relegate to the periphery of our national life, and yet Barack Obama won himself another four years in a democracy that is beset on all sides by the disease known as Liberalism. If you voted for him, you voted against our nation’s heritage and moved us all closer to a government of men (and not laws). Do you realize that this will hurt you and your family? Of course not.
PS: What kind of leader induces the biggest smile from Barack Obama when he greets them?
Here is a hint at the answer:
