David Limbaugh is a writer, author and attorney. His latest book is “The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic.” His website is www.DavidLimbaugh.com.

My newly released book, “The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic,” picks up where my previous book “Crimes Against Liberty” left off, chronicling President Obama’s record since mid-2010, and it’s not pretty.

I firmly believe that Obama is heading this nation toward financial catastrophe, is greatly undermining our national defenses, the Constitution and the rule of law, is severely damaging our energy industry and our energy independence, is dangerously expanding government and smothering the private sector and small and large businesses, and is polarizing this nation in a way we haven’t seen in many decades, along racial, gender and economic lines.

In wholesale breach of his 2008 campaign themes, he is zapping America of its optimism and hope, replacing those with despair and malaise. He is using his bully pulpit to turn the American dream on its head, demonizing success and glorifying government dependency.

Rep. Paul Ryan has been warning for several years that America is in deep financial trouble, primarily because of our runaway entitlements, which account for almost $100 trillion of unfunded liabilities. Experts whom he has consulted warn that we can’t indefinitely defer this problem, that we have a window of perhaps two or three years to restructure them and return to a path of solvency.

You should notice that no one has really disputed Ryan’s assertion, suggesting it is hyperbole or sensationalism. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Office of Management and Budget Director Jeffrey Zients have had their chance, in congressional testimony, to refute Ryan’s claims. But they can’t – and don’t.

Yet what do they and the president they serve do about this imminent national train wreck? Absolutely nothing. President Obama’s Democratic majority in the Senate has not submitted a budget for well over 1,100 days. Obama has offered no plan to restructure entitlements and has even rejected his own cynically formed bipartisan deficit commission.

When Ryan questioned Geithner about Obama’s budget – for both its one-year and its 10-year projections – Ryan extracted an admission from Geithner that the administration has presented no plan beyond 10 years. Its current plan is merely to stabilize the growth of the deficit and kick the long-term problem down the road.

In my book, I include the pertinent exchange between Ryan and Geithner, and Ryan is persistent in pointing out that even if Obama’s budget purports to put a temporary bandage on the growth of the deficit, the deficit begins to skyrocket again after 10 years. Geithner admits that and simply says that the administration doesn’t like Ryan’s plan because it is too hard on middle-income earners and seniors. The administration continues to say Ryan’s plan would destroy Medicare.

These are all lies. Ryan’s plan specifically would preserve Medicare while bringing it into solvency. He especially and expressly protects seniors, and his plan would help lower- and middle-income groups more than it would higher-income earners. If Obama and Geithner don’t like Ryan’s plan, then why haven’t they ever offered their own blueprint for restructuring entitlements, which is imperative if we are to save this nation from bankruptcy.

The dirty little secret – and it’s not really a secret – is that Obama’s budget doesn’t put a bandage on spending the next 10 years, either. He told us he wouldn’t add a dime to the national debt, but his own projections show he will add more than $7 trillion over the next decade, and the Congressional Budget Office scores it as closer to $9.5 trillion, which means his deficits will average almost $1 trillion per year – during the period he and Geithner claim they are stabilizing our national finances. Can you believe this?

In the book, I also go into great detail about how Obama is fundamentally changing our national defenses and readiness, how we are downscaling our conventional and nuclear forces while other nations – especially Russia and China – are ramping theirs up and terrorists and the rogue nations they support are feverishly pursuing weapons of mass destruction.

I can’t begin to adequately describe my new book in a column, but it suffices to say that it is an encyclopedic account of Obama’s war on America that includes some 400 pages and 1,300 footnotes. My goal was to leave no stone unturned in thoroughly and comprehensively documenting Obama’s abuses and misdeeds.

The book covers the gamut, including Obama’s wars on our economy, national defenses, values, religious liberty, businesses and guns.You may think you know almost everything Obama has done the past few years, but I guarantee you that the cumulative force of his actions related in my book will nevertheless astound you and most likely make your blood boil.

My hope is that in some way, this book contributes to an awareness in the electorate of just how important it is that we defeat this man in November. Our nation’s future greatness and our children’s future depend on it.

  • The ONLY way to fix this is to refuse to raise the debt ceiling again the next time it comes time to do so. The spineless House “leader” Boehner  has the keys to the Kingdom that releases the funds to run the nation. There is more than enough to pay the debt, social security,medicare and defense, the big choices will THEN have to be made. Good time to cut EPA,HUD,FEMA, and the rest of the unauthorized agencies than are trampling over the Constitution, not to mention programs like the Food Stamp than are raping the taxpayers. This is the ideal time to do it and all is needed are leaders, the problem is, the RINOS are running the show.

  • The Ryan plan still dooms us. The Federal govt will continue to spend more than we could ever afford it to. The plan assumes future Congresses will not increase spending, something that hasn’t been done in memory.

    There was another plan from another Paul but we rejected him out of hand because Liberty and respecting the Constitution were too scary.

  • Obama is an incompetent leader for the vast majority of us. Obama is determined to reward hsi friends with special favors and to punish the people and industries he does not like, even if it means the whole country suffers.

    Obama is a extremely talented liar. Lots of people want to believe him. If enough decide to vote for him in November, it is over. I see no way we can recover if we add another 5 or 6 trillion to our debt. If the economy improves enough to represent growth beyond inflation and population needs, the interest rate on the debt will go up, diverting funds to interest payments, necessitating more deficit spending and taking us right back in to recession.

  • An Arrogant and Lawless Cover-Up
    By David Limbaugh

    Fast and Furious was a harebrained scheme involving the sale of guns to straw purchasers with the hope that they would lead investigators to drug cartels. But because ATF agents were forbidden to track the movement of the weapons sold and Mexican authorities were kept in the dark about the operation, the only way it could have worked is for authorities to have discovered the weapons at crime scenes after crimes had been committed and people were injured or killed.

    Holder has been caught twice deceiving Congress, and he claimed both instances were inadvertent. His excuse for misrepresenting when he’d learned about the operation by some 10 months was that he hadn’t read emails sent to him informing him of it.

    Congress has a substantial need to know and a duty to pursue answers to: why Holder misled Congress; why the Department of Justice lied to Congress in a Feb. 4, 2011, letter in which they denied knowledge of gunwalking when internal documents proved they knew; why Fast and Furious was conceived in the first place; why ATF didn’t allow its agents to track the weapons once they were sold; why no one at Main Justice has been punished; who ultimately authorized the operation; why Mexican authorities were kept in the dark about an operation that resulted in the injury and death of hundreds of Mexican citizens; why DOJ officials approved wiretap applications if they didn’t read them thoroughly enough to discover that gunwalking was involved in the operation; and whether and when Obama had any knowledge of the operation.

    What possible legitimate basis — national security or otherwise — does Obama have to deprive Congress of the requested information? This is an arrogant and lawless cover-up that appears calculated to buy this administration time until after the November election. Republicans should not back down. Though it acts like it, this defiant administration is not above the law.
