New White House Council Targets Rural Communities
I’m not sure how much evidence Americans need to realize the guy in the White House is a serious Communist, but the creation of Obama’s new Rural Council is about the most any hopey-changey person would want.
The executive order that created the Council, signed in June and attracting scant attention, states that, “To enhance the Federal Government’s efforts to address the needs of rural America, this order establishes a council to better coordinate Federal programs and maximize the impact of Federal investment to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in our rural communities.”
Gee, doesn’t that sound nice? In case no one is noticing, the Federal government has no Constitutional authority to do anything with rural communities. Rural communities are within the purview of the states, not the Federal government.
“Sixteen percent of the American population lives in rural counties,” the executive order informs, adding that, “Strong, sustainable rural communities are essential to winning the future and ensuring American competitiveness in the years ahead. These communities supply our food, fiber, and energy, safeguard our natural resources, and are essential in the development of science and innovation.”
Well, isn’t that news to us all? That our rural areas are agrarian and supply natural resources to the rest of us? I guess Obama thought we didn’t notice that, so he ought to take charge of those areas. You know he can do what no one else can; such as make the oceans recede and lower the temperatures of the planet, and create jobs, too!! What a guy!
According the executive order, the Rural Council’s “mission and function” is to “work across executive departments, agencies, and offices to coordinate development of policy recommendations to promote economic prosperity and quality of life in rural America, and shall coordinate my Administration’s engagement with rural communities.”
So why exactly do we all of a sudden need 25 federal agencies, including the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Treasury and Commerce, Education, and Justice, to oversee America’s heartland? And what is the federal government’s “important role to play” in keeping check on what farmers and rural communities do?
Executive orders are becoming more and more intrusive, brash, and prevalent. I wonder when these executive orders get rescinded? Does it ever happen? I’ve seen those cute photo ops with all of the former Presidents standing side-by-side and smiling, best of buddies. Maybe there is some unwritten rule that Presidents just don’t undo what the previous Presidents did out of some sort of hat tip to the guy who went before them.
Whatever the reason, the “ticking time bombs” these guys put into place never seem to go away. So whoever gets the White House the next time is the lucky inheritor of the White House Rural Council, just as Bush and Obama inherited the President’s Council on Sustainable Development, and so on without end. The executive branch of czars and unelected bureaucratic monsters just keep multiplying over time. Trust me; we are already covered up with them. Swamped. Suffocated. Saturated.
When it comes to Bill Clinton’s President’s Council on Sustainable Development and this new one, the White House Rural Council, the limits have been broken. Both of these are anti-property rights programs. Land use, natural resources, water, even “views” are now under siege by the White House.
We know Obama knows this is an un-Constitutional over-reach, a slap in the face of all Americans. But he doesn’t care. Why would a Communist care about such things? His goal is to turn all of America into an outdated Soviet-style system put together by collectivist ideology. That’s his idea of “progress?”
This has happened before in the last century. And it didn’t turn out too well, actually. Lenin set the collectivization of rural Ukraine in motion before Stalin took it and ran with it. Between the two of them, the Ukraine suffered beyond description. It is the other Holocaust you don’t hear about. And now we have a parade of American Presidents putting the same collectivism in place here in the U.S., one building on the last one’s authoritarian creep against our freedom.
I’ve written previously about the Ukrainian Holodomor. Here is the history lesson of the day: Joseph Stalin, leader of the Soviet Union, set in motion events designed to cause a famine in the Ukraine to destroy the people there seeking independence from his rule. As a result, an estimated 7,000,000 persons perished in this rural farming area, known as the breadbasket of Europe, with the people deprived of the food they had grown with their own hands.
Stalin also imposed the Soviet system of land management known as collectivization. This resulted in the seizure of all privately owned farmlands and livestock, in a country where 80 percent of the people were traditional village farmers.
Evidently Obama has learned his lessons well from his Communist parents. The liberation of Libya from Ghadaffi is his current fascination, while here at home he intends to enslave our entire population. He is working successfully on the price rationing of energy and energy starvation here and now. How long before he, and the inheriting Presidents coming after him, implement rationing of food, fibers, natural resources, and all else in America? Smart Meters, anyone?
What a bad joke this and these past Presidents are. I’m not laughing. The Ukrainian dead are not laughing. The Ukrainian dead are telling us their story for good reason.
We have to find a Presidential candidate for 2012 and candidates forever beyond who are bound to the U.S. Constitution and the sovereignty of our nation … AND who believe in states rights through the 10th amendment. The Federal government was never meant to be this powerful and the United Nations does not have jurisdiction over our nation.
