• Obama’s Way? Dancing On Graves, Pushing for Leftist Radicalism

    Surge Summary: In tastelessly turning a eulogy to the late Congressman John Lewis into a political/policy speech attacking law enforcement and pushing for an end to the filibuster, former President Barack Obama confirmed why conservatives must defeat the radical left this November. The Democrats have all kinds of destructive mischief planned for the months ahead.

    Barack Obama [Thursday] upheld what’s becoming a sad Democrat tradition — turning a funeral into a political rally.  It has happened several times in recent years, and most infamously at Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone’s funeral in 2002.

    There were many disturbing statements from the former president during his eulogy for the late Rep. John Lewis, including this obscene attack on law enforcement:  “George Wallace may be gone, but we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.”

    Where is the former president’s outrage against rioting, the destruction of minority businesses and jobs, the surge of crime and violence, the assaults against police and the loss of innocent lives?  Nowhere.  Just as he did when he was president, Obama is most comfortable when he’s attacking law enforcement.

    But even more disturbing was Obama’s attack on the filibuster.  That procedure has been a check against radical change in America since its first use in 1837.

    If you want to make something law, you have to get a majority in the House, a supermajority in the Senate (due to the filibuster) and a president who won’t veto the legislation.

    Yes, the filibuster has frustrated conservatives.  But eliminating it is not something we should want to do UNLESS we believe that is exactly what the left intends to do if it gets power.

    When Obama called for the end of the filibuster rule and falsely labeled it as a racist “Jim Crow relic,” he ended the debate within the Democrat Party.  Proving the point, socialist Bernie Sanders flipped his position [Thursday] and now supports ending it.  If Democrats win the Senate and the White House, they will end the filibuster.

    Why?  Because as of now, it looks like the GOP is in real danger of losing control of the Senate this November. We’ve got 95 days to turn that around.  But you must understand what is coming at us.

    Obama, Biden and Sanders now want to eliminate the filibuster because they believe they will control everything after the elections.  And they intend to ram their radical agenda down our throats by any means necessary.

    They want to add more justices to the Supreme Court.  The number of justices on the high court is fixed by law.  But that law can be changed, and viola, you can jam through two or three more justices, creating a whole new left-wing majority.

    They will make Washington, D.C., a state, guaranteeing two more left-wing senators.

    They want a massive amnesty that will take states like Arizona, Florida and Texas off the table in any future election.

    In short, their agenda is meant to guarantee that people who believe in our values will never win another presidential election or govern America ever again.

    Obama’s statement [Thursday] was a huge signal that the left is preparing to essentially wage a civil war in a narrowly divided country.  He told half of the American people [Thursday] that their values will be crushed.

    We must defeat the radical left!
