Calling A Spade A “Spade”

The Daily Rant – by Roseann Salanitri

Barack Obama promised to transform America. Usually, if the man tells you it will be sunny all day, you would be wise to take an umbrella with you. Unfortunately, this is one time he meant what he said.  More unfortunate, the promise to transform America seemed relatively innocuous – just nice sounding-words that people could interpret to mean what they wanted them to mean.  However, BO had a very specific plan in mind – a plan that would undermine our very freedoms and enslave us by increasing our dependence on government. It has become apparent that in order for him to “transform” America, he must first destroy it.  He is, indeed, a man seeking to change times and laws.

This, my friends, is nothing short of a well-disguised coup d’état and his plan of governance has proved to be nothing short of treason.  While the Constitution describes treason as aiding and abetting the enemy, plotting to overthrow the government should also be considered treason.

If America is to survive, it’s high time we face reality and start calling a spade a “spade”.  Only then can we figure out what needs to be done next.

To be clear:

“A coup d’état typically uses the extant government’s power to assume political control of the country. In Coup d’État: A Practical Handbook, military historian Edward Luttwak states that’[a] coupconsists of the infiltration of a small, but critical, segment of the state apparatus, which is then used to displace the government from its control of the remainder.’”’%C3%A9tat (Emphasis added.)

Whether you call this a coup d’état or treason, the results are the same. This “transformation” has affected our education system, our freedom to worship as we please, our morality, our ability to pursue happiness, our right to our own property and the fruit of our labors, and our right to bear arms. In order to be able to achieve transformation, BO, through his actions, has proven that he is committed to destroying America so that he can then recreate it according to his own global ideology. He has been successful in destroying our economy, our morality, our media, and ravishing our military. While most in their reluctance to face reality insist that he is incompetent or are bewildered by his lack of leadership or common sense, the opposite is actually true. He has been extremely successful in destroying the great American experiment – or “transforming” it, as he has cleverly labeled his plan.   And this, my friends, is only the beginning of what BO has in store.  The land of the free will no longer be free but shackled by absurd regulations instituted through Executive Orders and you can expect that even your property and parental rights will be surrendered to the United Nations.

The question is – is America still the home of the brave?  How Americans react to BO’s latest assault against our right to bear arms will answer that question.  If we lose that right, we may still be brave but we will also become vulnerable. A friend once told me that we don’t need the Second Amendment, as long as we have it.  I’m not a prophet or a seer but I will make this prediction, if we lose the battle to keep and bear arms, we will find out just how many other rights we have lost. And I will also predict that shortly thereafter, President Obama will be crowned King Obama – Our Savior!

For us who love liberty, it may be a choice to fight or die.   The Bible says: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”  Hosea 4:6.  I can only pray that America will soon be liberated from that condition and wake up and smell the pungent odor of treason that permeates the air of liberty.

The question I’m raising here is how do we fight a coup?  For the answer to that question, we should look to history.  Counter-coups have fallen into the successful and unsuccessful categories.  They have also run the gambit from violent to peaceful. One thing they all had in common is that they had leaders who understood the state of their condition, refused to cooperate with the coup, and were able to motivate others to do likewise. Unfortunately, America has been tragically slow to understand her fate and worse –she has not yet produced men or women who both understand the tenants of civil resistance and possess leadership abilities. Resistance of any kind – whether it be civil or militant – would be suicidal without understanding and without effective leadership.

I would like to say that America learned many lessons from the last election cycle, but until I hear people calling a spade a “spade”, I doubt that a successful counter-coup of any kind can be launched.  But there is always hope.  As a matter of fact, a glimmer of hope passed me by today when I heard the results of a third party poll conducted by TPATH (  The unscientific poll results reported that 2302 participants consisting of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Unaffiliated, Conservative & Constitution Party voters stated overwhelmingly that neither of the two major parties represent their views and/or ideology.

This coup would not have been possible without the compliance of our two major parties, which have become ideological cabals concerned only with protecting their base of power instead of protecting our Constitutional Republic. And they have also fostered lies upon us that we have swallowed hook, line and sinker.  They have convinced us that we must vote for either of the two parties or our votes are counterproductive.  This lie has protected their base.  I do have wise friends, and one told me that the problem with voting for the lesser of two evils is that you still get evil.  And yet, many of us still get out the old clothespin for our nose when we go to the voting booth – as if we had no choice.

In my not so humble opinion, we will not get a better America until we get better Americans in political office. Our Founders, in their wisdom, provided a means for cleaning out our government – it’s called elections.  But even the election process has been hijacked and rendered unreliable. So, where are the protesters in the streets, at the White House, at the Capital building?  Where are the protesters at the states’ capitals, at the offices of elected officials, at the county courthouses? All home watching TV and driving their kids to soccer games.

Until I see swarms of Americans protesting wherever possible, refusing to accept the mediocrity that sells itself as moderation, and being sure that real Americans that value and understand liberty represent us, I’ll remain a little skeptical. And above all – I’ll continue to pray for the America I loved and will continue to hope that God will have mercy on us – in spite of our complacency.

  1. Started well before Obama!! Don’t think that Dem and repub are any different from each other, we would be in this same spot with Romney. A plan is a plan, it doesn’t matter which suit is in front.

    1. Correct. Obummer is just another useful idiot. You have to sell your soul long before being considered for prez. Just another tool in a long line of “tools”

  2. The man is not acting alone in his attempt to destroy the economy therefore it is at least economic treason! We know the true charge that should go with these actions. Plain and simple the man is guilty of many crimes against humanity . Evil is on the wrong side of unity and they know it. We have it all figured out. up here in Canada we have trained our police to burn they’re own police cars allowing protesters to go free.
