Today's Headlines - 7:13 PM: M.N.: Obama's deliberate "isolationism" and withdrawal from world affairs (or rather "farming them out" to others, including Russians, Chinese and Iranians) is the mirror side of his aggressive agenda for domestic "transformation" (including the release of prisoners - the so called "criminal justice reform", flooding the country with the potential "fifth columns" of illegal immigrants and incitement of war, by "radicalization from above", against the police and law enforcement). He will try to achieve the maximum of this agenda during the remainder of his term, aided by the distraction of electoral process.


Maybe you should have paid closer attention. Five months before Obama’s promise to transform America, his wife provided a few clues: “[W]e’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

Can you say, “Mission accomplished”?
