A sneak-peak at Barack Obama's plans for America in a potential second term


Why has President Obama said nothing about what he plans to do if given a second term of the presidency? You don't hear what he will do about jobs, national security, immigration, Medicare or the like. What you do hear him say, repeatedly, are things like: Romney's wealthy and "out of touch", Paul Ryan wants your grandparents to die, Republicans want to ruin the environment, Romney put his dog on the car roof, Republicans hate women, the wealthy are evil people.

The groundless accusations go on and on. But Obama needs to distract voters. He can't call attention to his policies of the past four years because they've been disastrous. And he doesn't dare tell us what he plans to do in a second term because he knows that doing so would be the death of his campaign. So Aaron Klein, author of New York Times best seller book, "Fool Me Twice: Obama's Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed" is telling us what Obama won't.

The book, written with co-author Brenda J. Elliott, lays out the specific policy prescriptions President Obama will attempt to enact if he is reelected in November. The research unveiled should have all Americans fearing a second-term for this president. Keeping in mind all Obama has done in his first term to secure America's status as a nation in decline, just imagine what he would do in a second term with no worries about needing to win another election.

When asked in an interview where he was able to find the information for "Fool Me Twice," Klein pointed out that he only did "what a lot of people in the mainstream media could do if they only look at the progressive organizations and key individuals who wrote the stimulus bill and health-care legislation and what they have been writing since on record - which serve as a blueprint for Obama’s second-term agenda.”

According to Klein, second-term plans include granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, whose voter registration would be paid for by the federal government (aka American taxpayers)- registrations that would most likely be made under the party of the Democrats. That would translate roughly into millions of instant votes for the Democrats in one easy step, and a significant step toward making the Republican party obsolete.

The amnesty plans come in the form of interagency directives, legislative attempts and a series of executive orders similar to Obama’s June 2012 order to stop deporting young illegal immigrants who entered the United States as children if they meet certain requirements.

One section of the book documents how key progressive groups, including the Center for American Progress and Demos, helped to craft the dictates placed in the “Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America’s Security and Prosperity Act of 2009.” The act, introduced by Reps. Solomon Ortiz (D-TX) and Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), has yet to pass. According to Klein, the bill’s provisions, however, "form the generalized basis for progressive organizations' specific policy reports and recommendations on how Obama should approach the issue of amnesty, including during a second term. These same organizations were instrumental in helping to craft Obama’s first term policies on immigration reform." The Center also recommends abolishing the current limit on visas for immigrants.

In his research, Klein also uncovered second-term plans for paycheck fairness initiatives. Essentially this strives to give the federal government the authority to determine what is the fair salary for individual jobs in the private sector - and that includes all jobs in the private sector. In other words, if the federal government decides you make too much in your private sector job, it can adjust your wages according to what the government deems fair. It would not be just the top "one percenters" who'd be subjected to this. In fact, they'd be the least impacted. The most affected would be the middle class who Obama wants to make dependent on the government. 

Obama says he wants to fight for the middle class, but what he really wants to do is create a welfare class, starting with paycheck fairness. Also in his second term blueprint is a living wage fairness plan where the government would raise the minimum wage - straight from Marx's ideology - so every individual worker pays his fair share for housing, food, etc. On the surface it sounds good. People may like the idea of the government assuring that they have a higher paycheck. The problem is, it's been tried before - in the 1990s until 2003, pushed by the Obama-supported and fraudulent ACORN group, and it put the local economies in over 80 cities across the country that tried it in alarming peril. It also created a fierce anti-business climate. Obama says he is interested in creating real jobs in the private sector, but his attempts to destroy the private sector belie his words.

Here are a few other findings from Klein's research about documented plans for what Obama would do if given a second term:
  • Taxpayer-funded, neighborhood-based programs to better integrate the newly amnestied immigrants into society, including education centers and healthcare centers. A “federal solution” to ensure that the amnestied immigrants are treated “equitably” across the United States.
  • The recreation of a 21st century version of FDR’s Works Progress Administration program within the Department of Labor that would oversee a massive new bureaucracy and millions of new federal jobs.
  • Specific plans for a National Infrastructure Bank. This entity would “evaluate and finance infrastructure projects "of substantial regional and national importance” and would finance “transportation infrastructure, housing, energy, telecommunications, drinking water, wastewater, and other infrastructures.”
  • Wresting control of the military budget from Congress by attempting to place an ”independent panel” in charge of military spending while slashing the defense budget in shocking ways.
  • The vastly reduced resources of the U.S. Armed Forces will be spread even thinner by using them to combat “global warming,” fight global poverty, remedy “injustice,” bolster the United Nations and step up use of “peacekeeping” deployments.
  • A new “green” stimulus program and the founding of a federal “green” bank or “Energy Independence Trust,” which would borrow from the federal treasury to provide low-cost financing to private-sector investments in “clean energy.”
  • Detailed plans to enact single-payer health care legislation controlled by the federal government.
These plans don't even include the massively huge, crippling taxes set to go into effect courtesy of ObamaCare.

Our choice in November is clear: A candidate who supports free enterprise and the capitalist system that, while not perfect, has been the single largest producer of sustained prosperity in the history of the world, or the incumbent candidate who wants to destroy our economy through massive government centralization, spending, dependence and control.

It is crucial to remember that the same progressive groups that were behind Obama's first election campaign and who helped him craft legislation such as the stimulus plan and ObamaCare are still actively pushing for this blueprint - the one he doesn't want Americans to know about. 

November 6 is our most viable chance to save America. Wresting both houses of Congress from the Democrats won't be enough. The Obama Administration and supporters have shown a mastery of using the courts, the complicit mainstream media and unbridled regulatory power by federal agencies to bypass our elected representatives and force a Socialist-now, eventually-Communist agenda on the people. Obama simply must be voted out. This is no longer about Republicans vs. Democrats. This is about America's survival.

  1. Good points, though:

    "Remuneration is the most important means for achieving justice in work relationships. The 'just wage is the legitimate fruit of work'.

    They commit grave injustice who refuse to pay a just wage or who do not give it in due time and in proportion to the work done. A salary is the instrument that permits the labourer to gain access to the goods of the earth. 'Remuneration for labour is to be such that man may be furnished the means to cultivate worthily his own material, social, cultural, and spiritual life and that of his dependents, in view of the function and productiveness of each one, the conditions of the factory or workshop, and the common good'. The simple agreement between employee and employer with regard to the amount of pay to be received is not sufficient for the agreed-upon salary to qualify as a 'just wage', because a just wage 'must not be below the level of subsistence' of the worker: natural justice precedes and is above the freedom of the contract."

  2. Yes, but when the wage is forced by government and not what the free market can bear, it causes havoc. Look at the cities mentioned in the above article - they tried artificial wage increase and it was disastrous. Just because something sounds "good and fair" on paper, doesn't mean we should recklessly embrace it if it does more harm than good. Artificial manipulation is not the answer. If these "low wage" jobs are unlivable by someone with family and kids to support, for instance, they'll be taken by high schoolers and kids on college break, or those just starting out. With time these people will move up to the better paying jobs that require experience, and the low wage jobs will be then taken by the next batch coming up after them. If the employer cannot find anyone to take the job at the low wage, he will then have to raise the wage himself to compete, or go out of business. Leave the government manipulation out of it.

    1. What makes you trust businesses more than the government?

      A business's goal is money. Ideally, the government's goal is the welfare of the people. Aren't people more important than money?

    2. Yes, Donna...people are absolutely more important than money. That's why the government confiscating people's money in ways that harm people is so wrong. Businesses don't take anything from people. Only the government has the power to take things from people. And it is the GOVERNMENT who is so interested in MONEY that they are willing to let people die!! Read this article in the New York Times by one of Obama's own former czars and current supporter of Obama. WAKE UP!!!! They want people to die so they can save money!! Business people aren't hurting people, the government is!! No amount of money is worth ONE human life. Please see what is right in front of you - this is SERIOUS and WRONG what the government - not business -- is doing!!!

      Donna - if you believe the government is more trustworthy than business, you are mistaken. Look at all the misery in the history of the world that has been caused by governments. Look at Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Lenin, etc. True misery, death, harm have come from governments. Name one business that has caused anything on such a mass scale. Don't be fooled by the liberals who are trying to convince you that only the government can save you. That is exactly how the other dictators rose to power: charm, charisma and empty promises - and the hope that the people would fall for their false rhetoric. Be smarter than that, Donna.

    4. Yeah, I remember the last commie/socialist/pinko to increase the minimum wage...

      Oh wait, it was Bush Jr. who signed it in.

      "A just wage is the concrete means of verifying the whole socioeconomic system and, in any case, of checking that it is functioning justly"

  3. Why would anyone entrust Obama and his gang with the authorization to determine what a “fair” salary is? I suppose he will make this his next #1 priority. Much like he has made job creation a #1 priority or keeping our diplomats safe a #1 priority (4 murdered Americans and he goes to a campaign event in Vegas hours later). This guy is dangerous and needs to go.
