Fellow Georgian Deanna Berry posted this outstanding timeline of Obama’s Presidency thus far. It is frightening how he is outright attacking morality and American freedom, while at the same time increasing his own power. Yet Americans seem to be paying attention to less than 100 people being paid bonuses and whether they got their $30 extra in their check, rather than what is actually important. Pride will be our downfall.

With permission, Deanna’s summary in its entirety:

I just wanted to quickly recap the happenings of the past few months…and make sure that all the Christians out there are paying attention to what our President and our elected leaders are up to.

Since many of you have replaced the real Messiah with the one the media has created, I will use A.B.O. to denote the chronological order of my time line.

January 22, 2009
2 days A.B.O.
POTUS signs executive order announcing the closure of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, within one year…no clear plan outlined as where the terror suspects (or as we now call, man-created tragedy suspects) will be sent or how they will be dealt with.

This day he also signs and order prohibiting coerced interrogation methods such as water boarding, as this practice (although extremely effective in keeping us safe against further terror attacks) has “tarnished” our image in the global community.
January 23, 2009
3 days A.B.O.
POTUS reverses the Mexico City Policy, ending the ban of public funding for overseas organizations that sponsor abortions, thus funneling millions of our tax dollars to Africa and other nations in order to pay for the murder of unborn children.
The pro-choice community praised President Obama for this move…the rest of us mourned.

January 26, 2009
6 days A.B.O.
POTUS issues Presidential memorandums calling for increased energy efficiency standards to be placed on already struggling auto manufacturers that must be met before the release of their 2011 models. These memos also give the states the right to increase their emmisions standards even higher than the already costly federal standards…costing the tax payers even more money.

It is this day that POTUS also gives his very first taped television interview…to Al Arabya…where he pledges our commitment to amend our relations with the Arab community and repair our image in the Islamic community. Yippee.

January 29, 2009
9 days A.B.O.
POTUS signs into law his first bill, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, adding one more federal law that limits an employers right to pay an employee what they are willing to work for.

(I agree that women are worth just as much as men in the work force, but if you are getting paid less than your male counterpart…then it’s your own fault. Ask for more money…if they refuse then find another job that will pay you what you are worth.)

January 30, 2009
10 days A.B.O.
POTUS launches yet another website propaganda movement. This one is called the Middle Class Working Families Task Force. I seem to remember Hitler doing something simple with his middle class work force.

Nevertheless, he passes this one off to VP Joe Biden…since he, himself, is a middle class working man. Remember, he rides Amtrack.

January 31, 2009
11 days A.B.O.
POTUS yuks it up at the Alfalfa Club annual banquet accompanied by his partner in crime, TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States).

February 3, 2009
14 days A.B.O.
POTUS nominates Republican Senator Judd Gregg as Commerce Secretary…since his first guy resigned under investigation of “pay to play” activities.

POTUS’s nominees for Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Daschle and Chief Performance Officer, Nancy Killifer resign due to unpaid tax issues. POTUS stands behind his nomination of Daschle til the bitter end…the bitter end being when Daschle voluntarily withdrew from the running, citing his nomination as a distraction.

Later that day, POTUS would schedule several television interviews to publicly apologize for this mistake, but take credit for righting the wrong…even though he had nothing to do with Daschle’s withdrawal.

February 4, 2009
15 days A.B.O.
POTUS announces that companies partaking in the TARP funds must cap executive salaries at $500k/year…(I guess they forgot about bonus capping, huh)

POTUS also signs the CHIP bill, expanding government funded health care for children…a bill sponsored by Republican Senator Olympia Snowe…the same Olympia Snowe that several days later announced her intended support of the $787 Billion Stimulus Package…the same $787 Billion Stimulus Bill that Obama promised would be available for public review for no less than 5 days before voted on…yes, the same bill that passed with not a single member of Congress reading a word of it.

February 6, 2009
17 days A.B.O.
POTUS creates the President’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, whatever that is, and issues an EO backing the use of union labor for large-scale federal construction projects. More payback for the unions…more punishment for the non-union private sector.

February 12, 2009
23 days A.B.O.
Senator Judd Gregg, Obama’s nominee for the office of Commerce Secretary, withdraws his nomination for that office on the basis that he strongly disagrees with the President’s economic agenda and therefore could not serve in support of it.

February 17, 2009
28 days A.B.O.
POTUS travels to Denver to sign into law the $787 BILLION Stimulus package…the same one that Americans strongly opposed.

February 26, 2009
37 days A.B.O.
POTUS reveals his proposal for the 2010 United States Federal Budget…a budget that the Tax Policy Center claims will increase the national debt more than $900 billion each year from 2010-2015, following a $2.5 trillion increase in the national debt for FY 2009, more than twice the record $1 trillion increase in 2008.

February 27, 2009
38 days A.B.O.
POTUS starts the process to repeal or modify a midnight rule imposed by Bush, that would protect health workers who refuse for moral reasons to perform certain medical procedures…ie. abortions.

March 2, 2009
41 days A.B.O.
Secretary of State Clinton pledges $900 million of humanitarian and development aid to the Gaza Strip in order to help them rebuild their Palestinian territory under Hamas…the terrorist organization that repeatedly fires rockets into Israel and publicly calls for the destruction of the Israeli nation.

POTUS also Kansas Governor, Kathleen Sebelius (a vocal advocate for heath care providers who perform late term abortions…meaning up to the 9th month) to the position of Secretary of Health and Human Services.

March 3, 2009
42 days A.B.O.
POTUS restores a provision of the Endangered Species Act requiring that federal agencies consult the United States Fish and Wildlife Service and/or the National Marine Fisheries Service before taking actions that could harm endangered species.
Does anyone else see the irony in this? Fight to save the polar bears…kill the babies?

March 4, 2009
43 days A.B.O.
Obama issues a memorandum limiting the possibility to grant no-bid contracts to private businesses. Just another nail in the coffin for the non-union, non-government sector.

March 9, 2009
48 days A.B.O.
Obama overturns rules limiting federal money being used for human embryonic stem cell research. So now we can not only pay for overseas abortions with our tax dollars, we can fund the creation of human embryos for the sole purpose of destroying them! Goodie!

March 10, 2009
49 days A.B.O
POTUS loses another team member when Chas Freeman withdraws from his appointment as chairman of the National Intelligence Council. How many is that…I’ve lost count.

March 11, 2009
50 days A.B.O
Obama signs the Omnibus Appropriations Act of 2009 (aka the Porkubus Bill), a federal budget amendment containing more than 9000 earmarks…the same earmarks that he promised to veto during his campaign. Add another $410 Billion to the deficit.

March 13, 2009
52 days A.B.O
The Department of Justice outlines a new legal standard for detaining the suspected terrorists held at Guantanamo; “enemy combatant” definition is dropped, and suspects shall be detained under international law. So, now we call them …??? And we put them…??

March 19, 2009
58 days A.B.O
POTUS appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno where he likens his pitiful bowling skills to those of the Special Olympics…a comment in which a formal apology was issued even before the show aired.

POTUS releases a YouTube video message to Iran in celebration of Nowrus, the Iranian New Year holiday.

March 20, 2009
59 days A.B.O
Obama and Biden meet with former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Washington. Um…do they need some pointers?

March 24, 2009
63 days A.B.O
POTUS is considering asking Congress to give the Treasury secretary, tax cheating Timothy Geithner, unprecedented powers to initiate the seizure of non-bank financial companies, such as large insurers, investment firms and hedge funds, who the government deems “too big to fail”.

Both the Kremlin and Beijing announce their intent to pitch a new “Global Currency” at the upcoming G20 summit…they apparently feel as though our out of control spending is going to devalue the dollar so much that it will be all but worthless. The are proposing to drop the dollar as a reserve currency all over the world. Hmmm….I thought the world loved Barack Obama?

Wake up America…

    I do know who the Obamanation isn’t working for.. Americans.

  • http://palinberry2012.com Deanna

    Wow…I don’t ever get this many comments on my blog…Thanks for posting it here, Scott!

    • Brian H

      Nice job, Deanna. Unfortunately you are going to be in for a LOONNGG four years if you continue documenting this guys disasters. Thanks for taking one for the team by keeping us informed and up to date. I feel like this country is on a speed roller coaster. Somebody please stop it!!!

  • kristen

    Quite frightening when this is put in a timeline. It’s like our society and Constitution are eroding at an accelerated pace. I think adjacent to this timeline we should include line graphs that follows the federal deficit, the stock market, and unemployment rates. And pretty soon we’ll need one to track inflation. That would be quite a visual.

    (btw–love the ‘A.B.O.’)

  • Cordeiro

    Definitely a timeline worth continued documentation.

  • East of Eden

    Wow…when it’s listed out like this it’s VERY sobering. Thanks for posting this Scott, I always enjoy the things you post.

    • http://scottslant.blogspot.com/ Scott A. Robinson

      Thanks E. I do write daily. . . .

      • East of Eden

        I know I follow your blog on blogger, although under my real name, which I will not say here… :) I should comment over there huh?

        • http://scottslant.blogspot.com/ Scott A. Robinson

          Nah. Let’s just keep having off-topic conversations that are entirely irrelevant to everyone else!

          BTW, I haven’t posted over here for awhile, and what do you and C do? You both post on top of me!

          While I’m off-topic, whatever happened to Jason’s alter-ego J? He was fun.

          • East of Eden

            I think it has to do with the time you start writing your post, that’s when the time stamp starts, if that makes sense, then I’m out here in the west too, so that might play into it. Or, I just might have some secret Tim Geither powers I’m not telling you all about! Mwahhhahaa

          • http://www.politicalderby.com/ Jason Wright, Editor

            She’s right, it’s all about the Time Stamp. The most recent show up first. (editors have discretion to make them “sticky” and they appear on top regardless)

            • http://scottslant.blogspot.com/ Scott A. Robinson

              I know it’s the time stamp and I know it starts when I start typing. These two just managed to post right after me! No problem though, I’m just giving C and EoE a hard time.

  • http://www.politicalderby.com/ Jason Wright, Editor

    Stunning, simply stunning.

    • Alaina Segovia

      I’ll second that.

    • JE

      Stunning implies surprise. Why is this behavior a surprise to anyone?
      Only we ‘kooks’ that took Obama’s (miniscule) record as evidence of how he would govern expected this? Don’t worry, the best is yet to come. Just give the man a chance. His own budget projections (that he is using to try to say the deficit will drop over 4 years) show 30% inflation over 4 years. That is about 7% per year, which is significantly higher than we have experienced in quite some time (but is still considered conservative by many standards)

      • http://scottslant.blogspot.com/ Scott A. Robinson

        I think the pace he is moving at is what is so stunning. Most Presidents present their agenda with more caution and concern for the voice of the people. Obama’s agenda has really been in our face, without any discussion whatsoever.

        • JE

          When you only have 4 years to turn a 230 year old republic into a socialist state under the auspices of fixing the economy, you gotta move fast. Or as Obama and his staff have said, “Never let a crisis go to waste.”

          • kristen

            LOL. Although, it’s really not that funny…..
