In a stunning decision, Dictator Barack Hussein Obama and his State-run media along with ObamaFriends Dictators Fidel Castro (Cuba) and Hugo Chavez (Venezuela) announced that he supports Honduran President Manuel Zelaya against the democratic Honduran forces. Note: After Obama's stance on Iran, when he initially supported the ruling mullahs, this should come as no surprise to anyone.

According to leftist Reuters News Service: "U.S. President Barack Obama said on Monday the coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was illegal and would set a "terrible precedent" of transition by military force unless it was reversed." In another journalistic exemplar of not knowing what he is talking about, Obama's CBS News wrote that their boss (Obama) announced the Honduran coup was "not legal." Outrageous but, expected from Obama. As he is also a dictator, he most certainly supports others of his ilk.

The world media and particularly the US State-run ObamaPress are referring to a "military coup" which ousted the Honduran president-would-be-dictator-for-life. And, according to the NY Times, Obama "said he was deeply concerned and in a statement called on Honduran officials "to respect democratic norms, the rule of law and the tenets of the Inter-American Democratic charter." The problem with our own in-house dictator's statement is, of course, that Honduras WAS respecting democratic norms and the rule of law. The reason for the coup? Zelaya was attempting to set himself up as dictator-for-life by single-handedly eliminating the Honduran Constitution's presidential term limits. Sound familiar? Obama and his minions are working to affect the same thing in the US. It was the Honduran Supreme Court who advised the world that the Honduran military had acted correctly in response to "those who had publicly spoken out and acted against the Constitution's provisions." Those would be Zelaya and his minions.

Note: Zelaya buddy and Venezuelan Dictator Hugo Chavez and our own Usurper and Dictator-in-Chief Barack Obama are attempting the same thing in their own countries. Obama is simply being a bit more clandestine about his own ambitions in this arena. However, as he completes his totalitarian takeover of the USA with the assistance of his soon-to-be-irrelevant US Congress Obama's lifetime role as the US leader will soon be assured. With only lip-service from the soon-to-be-forever-squashed by their government American people and the build up of his brown-shirted jack-booted private police/security forces (see G.I.V.E. Act, AmeriCorps and Nationalservice.gov), Obama (Where's your Birth Certificate?) will soon have unobstructed, unrestricted and unlimited powers to do anything he desires. Besides, he's already been given more power by a fawning and corrupt Congress and press than any other leader of the US in history.

So, if one were to compare to two, one real difference between Honduras and the USA is that Honduras seems to actually uphold its constitutional principles; principles largely based on the US Constitution. Choosing Totalitarianism in place of freedom and liberty, the tragedy is that the USA is no longer doing the same. Have We-the-People (soon to be We-the-Peons) lost ALL of our will to fight? Have we?

Obama Cheers for wrong team:
