Reagan: From King George III to King Obama

By Michael Reagan

It's taken more than 200 years, two world wars, an industrial revolution, and the dawn of the Internet, but the United States once again finds itself at the mercy of an intolerant king.

Instead of a tax on tea, King Barack Obama and his Democrat Knights of the Fast Food Table seem intent on imposing a penalty on chicken -- but not all chicken.

They are only targeting poultry prepared by Chick-fil-A.

And it's not because King Obama has decreed that Chick-fil-A makes a product that is any way unsuitable for the American people. It's because Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy had the audacity to make comments supporting families and the "biblical definition of the family unit" -- comments that apparently conflict with the king's recent pronouncement on gay marriage, even though a careful review of Cathy's comments will show that he said nothing about gay marriage; the inference seems to have been started by liberal reporters and headline writers trying to stir the pot.

Nonetheless, Cathy's comments have infuriated the petulant king and his court, so much so that King Obama's mayors in Boston and Chicago issued proclamations of their own aimed at stopping further expansion of Chick-fil-A restaurants in their cities.

This is nothing short of outrageous behavior by a king who is obviously out of touch with the rest of us.

King Obama's rule is so egregious, in fact, that the traditionally left ACLU has weighed in on the side of Chick-fil-A. A senior attorney for the ACLU of Illinois reportedly told an interviewer that any government that can exclude a business for being against same-sex marriage can also exclude a business for being in support of same-sex marriage.

It shows you how far to the left that the Democrat Party has gotten when the ACLU can't support its positions.

Unfortunately, the king's bad behavior doesn't stop with the food we eat. Part of King Obama's health care law also took effect recently. It will essentially force most employer-based insurance systems to provide free contraceptive services, including the morning-after pill.

The implementation of the health care mandate comes less than a week after a federal judge in Colorado temporarily blocked the government from enforcing its contraception requirement on Denver-based Hercules Industries, a private manufacturer of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning equipment, which happens to be run by a Catholic family.

This is a case where King Obama's Justice Department offered the head of Hercules a choice: Either give your employees free contraception or surrender your company to the crown.

Put another way: Give up your company or give up your religion.

Not only is my father probably rolling over in his grave right now, but I would be so bold to say that FDR and John F. Kennedy are too.

We have a president who thinks he's a king. And America cannot afford four more years of a king who can so cavalierly discard the U.S. Constitution when it doesn't suit his political agenda.

I find it somewhat ironic that while the Justice Department is asking people to surrender their religion and their companies, some wealthy Democrats are giving up their passports to escape the tyranny of King Obama.

    It is appropriate to note that a King and his Court (of Czars) is not complete without his two Court jesters, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, who will dance to the King’s requests like good lap dogs.
    His Sherrif, Eric Holder is more corrupt than the Sherrif of Nottingham ever was. His Camelot has turned into Sodom and Gomorrah.
    Also, ruling by Executive (illegal) orders clearly borders on treason, but the Anointed one is very forgiving, of him self of course.
    The end of tyranny Will happen 11/6/12.

      I pray everyday that it will end on 11/06/12. I have never thought in my life I would absolutely hate the leader of our great nation. Never! But I do, I absolutely do! He is the embodiment of evil! He disgusts me to no end.

      I dont know if it could happen or if Cogress could do it but I wish when he is de-throned in November that he can and should be put on trial for treason and all his minions too! But we all know it will never happen!

      Agreed! And what I fear almost more than four more years of this liar, thug and cheat and his fellow goons is what he will do from Nov 7 to Jan 19 via executive orders should he be defeated. Not only will his executive orders devastate our country, but I am also concerned that he will create (order) a disaster of epic proportions that he will declare martial law, suspend the Constitution, and declare himself dictator for life. He will use his goons in the unions, the communist party, black panther thugs, and the rest of the radical blacks to create a scenario so dangerous that most people will just go hide! Guess who will police us then? The UN.
      Stay safe, stay prepared…………and PRAY for OUR country!

      This country is in deep danger of going under, and it scares me to death. It feels like a fore runner to the Anti Christ is here running this great nation.
      Obamas tacticts will leave this country in shambles should he not be reelected (heaven forbid he is re-elected),that will be hard to put all back togeather.
      Believers take heart, read Revelation 22:10-16

    Recently I saw an interview in which Obama admitted being a Muslim. That explains it all. They do not believe in Christ. They do not believe in Democracy. They have no mercy, nor does he. They are permitted to lie to further their cause. He thinks he should be able to lie without impunity as well.

    He has run us deeper in debt than any other president bar none. His goal is to enslave us! He wants Christians to turn against God and father against son, daughter against mother and so on. He supports abortion which God forbids (murder). He supports homosexuality which God forbids. He is ungodly and imoral and the poorest leader any country could ever have the misfortune of having.

    Vote Obama out and save our country. Put an end to slavery for once and for all. It is up to you. You do not have to vote Democratic. Go in the polling booth and let your conscience guide your hand. Do the right thing and God will restore us to our former glory.

    Don’t count Romney out yet. If he and his companions over at the RNC can screw this up, they will. I give you 10 to 1 that he walks away from the conservative base between now and election day. The speakers at the convention will be a re-hash of 2008.

      I wouldn’t be so sure if I were you, Dudley. Furthermore, at this point, the most important and only thing is that the lying thug Obama is defeated!

    Romney needs to become more aggressive and attack Obama’s unconstitutional actions and his campaign lies. Maybe he is saving his ammunition until after GOP convention. I surely hope that is the case. We cannot have another McCain type of campaign where he did not act aggressively enough.

    He should bring out Obama’s past relationships with Davis, Wright, Ayers and Rezco..not to mention his choices of commie czars and others who wish to redistribute the wealth, attack the rich and transform America to a Marxist culture.

    I do not believe that obama thinks he’s a king. Wish he did. MeShelle, tho, is firmly convinced she, howevah, IS a monarch with no responsibilities and the power to dress as one rather as a peasant dresses. mr. o, however, believes himself to be a dyed in the wool, demanded to be as such by the inferior peasants who he orders about with no concern to anything but his enormous ego, to be a DICTATOR. He has no advisors as does a monarch. He simply does exactly as he wishes, from drones to writing humongous checks to our enemies and to HIS friends who put him in the position of dictator.

    I can hear him bellowing, when someone displeases him, “Off with his head, send a drone to eliminate him. I demand to see the video of the kill (I don’t need his head on a platter, I dislike blood letting in my presence.”

    Monarchs have advisors, dictators have minions. Monarchs desire the love of the peasants, and fool themselves that all adore him, dictators demand absolute loyalty, and kill those who don’t give him loyalty and their lives.

    I cannot stand the O word. I loathe having to say his name, and go to extra lengths not to say he is President. Everything he stands for is EVIL, Anti God, Anti Christian, and Anti American, and he is determined to bring the USA to it’s knees before he is through, no matter when that may be.

    God watches over his own, answers Prayers when permissible, and tries to keep us safe from the likes of O.
    On the flip side of that coin, is the fact that Satan gives aid to his own also.
    This coming election could not be any more touted as Good Vs. Evil. The thing is, we are in the last days, according to the many fulfillments of Scripture, as foretold over 2,000 years ago.
    If there is any doubt about whither or not we are in the last days, I charge you to read/study, the book of Revelations and related scriptures in study text under the search words last days, and Anti-Christ.
    Know that the end WILL come as prophesied, and if BHO is part of that fulfillment, then it will take it’s course, as it must.
    We WILL be thrown into a one-world Government, this is part of those prophecies, and each passing day, it seems, brings us closer to this reality. Stay alert, pray a lot, and watch over your own. Be prepared, and do not let the second coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ, catch you and yours not ready for his final call.
    The KING of KINGS is coming for you. The day and hour are unknown, but he shows us the signs. Make sure your house is in order and your Family ready.
    The very last thing you want to happen, is to be found left behind, looking up as the faithful, saved are being taken into the clouds with him.

    TAKE OUT THE TRASH IN NOVEMBER, AND
    RID THE WHITEHOUSE OF THE SQUATERS.
