Mondo has an excellent review of my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America, over at Death by 1000 Papercuts. For those of you who haven't read the book, this will shame you into it. Perhaps it will shame Glenn Beck, who spoke on his show yesterday (here, at minute 7) of the story I broke at Atlas about Obama's foreign contributions from a Hamas-controlled area of Gaza, and covered extensively in the book.
Beck said "we found" this information......huh?
Anyway, if you want the real story, the years of research and investigation that the shill media would not cover and the big noises on FOX are just beginning to speak to, read the book.
I was a bit surprised that her answer didn’t mention Chapters One or Two.
“The Preface. That sums up the core problem of Obama’s worldview that infects everything he does as President.”
With that in mind, I reread the Preface. Here’s the opening:
America is being tested in a way in which she has never been tested before.
America is under attack from within at the highest level of power. Barack Hussein Obama’s policies are bringing America to her knees.
With a consistency that can come only from deeply held conviction, Barack Hussein Obama is damaging the office of the presidency and compromising American sovereignty.
The Preface ends with:
“The Shining City on a Hill has gone dark. The United States has entered the age of the post-American presidency.
And Barack Hussein Obama is the first post-American president.”
Everything in between is not only powerful but, unfortunately, damningly true.
John Hawkins, interviewed Pamela Geller recently in a piece featured at David Horowitz’s NewsReal Blog and finished at his own Right Wing News [The Pamela Geller Interview]. Hawkins saved his best question for last and it had to do with The Post-American Presidency.
Geller’s answer pretty much makes the case for why it’s important for readers to look deeper into the theme of her book.
John Hawkins: Your new book is called The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America. The product description of the book includes this line.
“He envisions himself as more than just a president of the United States, but as a shaper of the new world order and internationalist energetically laying the groundwork for global government, the president of the world.”
Is Barack Obama a man who wants what’s best for America or do you believe he’s looking to deliberately weaken this country for his own reasons?
Pamela Geller: Barack Obama is not only presiding over the decline of America, but he’s aiding and abetting it. I have researched Obama since late 2007 and nothing he’s doing is a surprise. He’s an internationalist and he holds American exceptionalism in contempt. When asked in Europe if he believed in American exceptionalism, he basically said yes, as much as the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and Greek exceptionalism and so forth, which means no one is exceptional.
The reason why this is so critical to his basic thinking is because you have to understand that America’s founding principle, everything noble and great and magnificent that she achieved, was based on individual rights and that’s what American exceptionalism is, individual exceptionalism.
He would like to see us as just one of many socialist nations. It’s deeply troubling but it’s reflected in all of his policies, both domestic and international.
It’s hard to improve on the above summary of The Post-American Presidency: it’s The Obama Administration’s War on America in a nutshell.
All is not doom and gloom, though.
Post-American Presidency ends on a hopeful note with a final chapter entitled, “What Lovers of Freedom Must Do.” Fighting back with protests–which the Tea Party movement has proved can be effective–and calling out the Obama administration and its media enablers are two important components.
Voting is another, more powerful, means. I asked Pamela Geller if she thought Barack Obama would run for reelection in 2012; her reply was straightforward.
“Yes, I think he will certainly run in 2012.”
