Obama: “We are ..days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America

Were you not paying attention?

Doctor Bulldog & Ronin has the video of Obama’s now infamous statement.

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded,” Obama, who worked as a community organizer in Chicago early in his career, said during a Colorado Springs rally.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Here’s an amendment to this bill someone posted to me. I’m not sure of the process, i.e., if it’s now officially part of it because of a voice vote or if it has to be voted on by the House. It IS chilling!

    Rep George Miller happens to be one of the original sponsors of HR 1388. I do not see the amendment you are speaking of. It may not of been added yet.

    voice vote – A vote in which the Presiding Officer states the question, then asks those in favor and against to say “Yea” or “Nay,” respectively, and announces the result according to his or her judgment. The names or numbers of Senators voting on each side are not recorded.

    Found the senate version:

    This version: Reported in Senate. This is the text of the bill after coming out of committee in the Senate. This is the latest version of the bill available on this website.

    A lot struck out but here are a couple I posted on that are still in.
    Can not find “SEC. 6104. DUTIES” will look more tomorrow. We need to keep in mind it is big a lot to sift through. What one misses, another may see. They need to find a way to keep bills simpler.

    SEC. 119. INNOVATIVE AND COMMUNITY-BASED SERVICE-LEARNING PROGRAMS AND RESEARCH.

    ‘(ii) service-learning is a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.

    This comment says it all.

    This program looks to me like it can develop into a socialist indoctrination of our impressionable youth. The idea is here in section #6104. Now really ‘reasonable mandatory’, just what kind of double talk is this? This looks very much like ‘Hitler Jugend Program’ in Nazi Germany. It too was mandatory and parents could not trust their own children if the parents believed different than the government taught them. This program of Obama’s is dangerous. Federal Government indoctrination of our children is Dangerous my friends.
    http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h1388/show?goto_comment=97239

    Bingo!
    Imagine what children will be taught through MANDATORY “service-based learning” Indoctrination of leftist ideology, that’s what. Brain washed and then going home to conservative freedom loving parents?????? Home schooling is an option till the gov takes away that right!

    The Hitlerjugend, in this case the Obamajugend has arrived. Let’s hope it goes down in smoke.

    I contacted and extended my will to vote against this to both Gillibrand and Scummer. No response from either and they both voted for it. I never got a response from Scummer or Shillary when she was a NY senator. I did from Gillibrand as a Representative, but in lock step with Pelosi/Reid. These two don’t represent the state of NY, only the populated Westchester and south. NY needs to be split into two states. New York State and New York City State.

    I loved the bill HR 1388 it contained no words to force kids into this program or service.
    It did however let them if they so choose, learn about peaceful and do peaceful means of helping people.

    Again ,This bill contain 0 words on forcing kids into a mandatory service it was totally voluntary for them.
    ROTC already exist in schools, why cant PEACE CORPS as well. If I was given this “option” I would have
    learned a lot more and been able to live life with more skills than I already do. I did not want to be any
    part of ROTC, but would have the peace corps. To stop this bill would be totally wrong and I am glad it passed.

    Give peace a chance.

    So in turn would you be comfortable with ROTC service learning being “a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency” ?

    It there no end we may as well tattoo swastikas on our foreheads and march forward to this National Socialist Program Obama has in store for our youth and our country God bless us all.

    It seems to me that what will be required to overcome this gross abomination is the epitome of local community service – folks need to start pulling their kids out of the public schools, and they need to send a message to the local school boards by voting down the school budget until the board agrees NOT to participate in this forced socialist propaganda program. Keep in mind, however, that the federal government has been actively dumbing-down our youth for decades now, and very few parents have bothered to take notice, much less do anything about it.

    If one is aware of the 25 Points of the National Socialist Program, developed to formulate the party policies of, first, the Austrian German Workers Party (or DAP) and was copied later by Adolf Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers’ Party.
    Basically a summation of demands that would be typically associated with various political trends.
    I can easily count 9 that Obama has put into place in the short time he has been in office, and at least six of them cannot be implemented due to the single race concept of the Nazi regime. Four of the most alarming and obvious points as follows:
    • We demand the nationalization of all (previous) associated industries (trusts).
    • We demand a division of profits of all heavy industries.
    • We demand substitution of a German common law in place of the Roman law serving a materialistic world-order.
    • The good of the state before the good of the individual.
    Obama is hands down the most dangerous individual on the face of the planet, and much to my disgrace he is our president.
