Accept no substitutes. Don’t settle for also-rans. Go to the original source. Order it now! Scroll and see what Geert Wilders, Mark Steyn, Caroline Glick, Brad Thor, Andrew McCarthy, and David Horowitz have said about the book.

Barack Obama is the most radical individual ever to occupy the White House. This excellent book by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer explains exactly what that means and why its implications are fraught with such dangers for this great Republic. — David Horowitz

Sheer brilliance! The ultimate patriot’s handbook. Sharp, well written, and to the point. Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer lay bare Barack Hussein Obama’s radical, anti-America agenda and how to stop it. No true American’s library will be complete without this book. — Brad Thor

At a time when the US media — the traditional watchdogs of American democracy have transformed themselves into President Barack Obama’s lapdogs, the new media, on the Internet plays a crucial role in bringing accurate news to the public’s attention. At Atlas Shrugs, Pamela Geller does this on a daily basis. In The Post-American Presidency, Geller shines her laser on President Barack Obama — his life, his values, his friends and his perceptions of the country he leads. What she reports will disturb not only every American who believes in that America is the Shining City on the Hill and that the American people are what Abraham Lincoln referred to as “the almost chosen people.” It should also disturb people around the world who recognize that the international system stops working when the American Atlas shirks the burden of its uniqueness. — Caroline Glick

The Czechs, Israelis, Indians and other US allies were the first to realize we were heading toward a post-American world. Now it’s time for Americans to wake up to the realities of this President’s transformation of the country and its global role. Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer are two of the most incisive analysts of events at home and abroad, and you could not ask for better guides to where “hope,” “change” and czars are taking us — and what Americans can do about it. — Mark Steyn

This book is a chilling analysis of how the policy of president Barack Obama is chipping away at the very foundation of America’s leading role in the world. It exposes his philosophy of near universal “moral equivalency”; a philosophy that is a dead ringer for the cultural relativism that has been poisoning Europe for the past decades. America is the last man standing and it is vital that the people in Europe adopt the attitude of proud American citizens and learn that it is not shameful to be proud of one’s heritage. This book is incredibly fascinating and at the same time holds a deeply disturbing message — a message we should all take to heart. — Geert Wilders

Barack Obama is a revolutionary on a mission to cut America down to size. One size fits all, to be precise. His post-sovereign America is a country no different from any other: economically bankrupt, morally rudderless, with nothing exceptional about it besides the heights from which it tumbles and the remorselessness of its choice — his choice — to decline. With their characteristic attention to detail, clarity and fearlessness, Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer assay the wreckage. The Post-American Presidency is must reading for every concerned American who needs to know why we’re in this perilous moment, and where we’re headed if we don’t take our exceptional country back. — Andrew C. McCarthy

Obama’s Marxist Allies Move Forward on Healthcare, Socialist Agenda

By: Trevor Loudon
KeyWiki Blog

Democratic Socialists of America, is despite its deceptive name, the U.S.’s largest and probably most influential Marxist based organization.

Many of its several thousand members operate through the Democratic Party, New York’s influential Working Families Party and the organization also counts thousands of of labor unionists, religious activists, journalists and college professors in its ranks.

D.S.A. helped establish and continues to support the more than 80 strong Congressional Progressive Caucus and is particularly close to “single payer” healthcare champions Rep. John Conyers of Michigan and Caucus founder Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Quentin Young, Barack Obama, 2003

Dr. Quentin Young of Chicago is the father of the “single payer” healthcare lobby in the U.S. he is also a former Young Communist League member, a long time D.S.A. activist and a one time personal physician and long time friend and mentor to Barack Obama.

President Obama himself has a more than 25 year history of involvement with D.S.A. members.

D.S.A. means to use its considerable power and influence to push for completely socialized health care in the U.S. in the next few years.

Frank Llewellyn

Writing in the latest issue of Democratic Left, D.S.A. National Director Frank Llewellyn outlines some of the tactics the organization will employ to bring all U.S. healthcare under direct and complete state control.

The first step is to move public opinion in the “correct” direction.

In DSA we never expected more than the passage of an imperfect bill that we could work in coalitions to improve… DSA has been fighting for a single payer, Medicare-for-all approach to national health care for more than two decades. We expect to continue to fight for that approach in a number of states, especially in California, as the state legislature has passed single payer legislation in the past, only to have it overturned by a gubernatorial veto.

DSAers in every state and city should be prepared to rebut distortions with letters to the editor and op-eds that talk about what socialism really is – and what true social democratic public provision would look like, particularly when health care is the paradigmatic public good that markets, let alone for-profit oligopolies, simply cannot justly and affordably supply.

Next step is to punish or remove those remaining Democratic legislators still opposed to socialized healthcare.

Progressives must now work to ensure that some conservative Democrats who did not support the final bill will be punished with primaries or even third party challenges. In New York State, for example, the Working Families Party (WFP) threatened to withhold support from, or actively oppose, representatives for whom the WFP provided winning margins in the past, but who voted “no” on the health reform bill. And the labor movement also vowed to remember how people voted on this issue in this year’s election cycle. Those of us committed to true public provision of health care can reunite by participating in such efforts.

Llewellyn cynically acknowledges that Obamacare will create its own constituency.

Politically, passage of the bill is a positive step. First, because it keeps open the possibility of passage of other reforms in this Congress, and second, because it should create millions of new stakeholders in a health care system governed by democratically established rules rather than by the fiats of private insurers.

Lewellyn is clear that the private insurance industry is marked for destruction.

The Right will attempt to use the bill’s shortcomings to generate public sentiment for repeal; progressives have to use those same shortcomings to generate public support for more short-term improvements, and in the long term to build support for the elimination of private insurers.

He also explicitly links healthcare to the other items on the Marxist agenda, financial regulation, immigration “reform” (amnesty), bailouts for distressed home-owners, massive Federal aid to city and state governments and the scaling back of U.S. military commitments.

But passage of the bill does keep the door open for popular movements to demand strict financial regulatory reform, immigration reform, massive aid to states and localities, and a much-needed public jobs program. DSA and the larger progressive movement must create street heat in favor of these anti-corporate measures, as well as for a just resolution to the foreclosure crisis, and an end to United States involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.

D.S.A., together with its Communist Party, labor and Democrat allies will not stop until the entire U.S. economy is under state control and/or direction.

In an article in Democratic Left, Spring 2007 D.S.A National Political Committee member David Green of Detroit wrote:

What distinguishes socialists from other progressives is the theory of surplus value. According to Marx, the secret of surplus value is that workers are a source of more value than they receive in wages. The capitalist is able to capture surplus value through his ownership of the means of production, his right to purchase labor as a commodity, his control over the production process, and his ownership of the final product. Surplus value is the measure of capital’s exploitation of labor.

Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production. Our immediate task is to limit the capitalist class’s prerogatives in the workplace…

Obamacare, will not achieve that noble goal, but it is certainly a fine start.
