DAVID LIMBAUGN'S "CRIMES AGAINST LIBERTY"
By Christopher G. Adamo
During the Cold War, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn systematically unmasked the horrors of Soviet Russia, its oppression of the masses it claimed to be liberating, and its efforts at maintaining the facade of statist beneficence on the world stage. Through the publication of several works, including One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich and The Gulag Archipelago, Solzhenitsyn eventually was able to put out a distress call from those subjugated under the iron fist of the Soviet Union, thereby inflicting grave damage to its public relations ruse, from which it never recovered.
Recently, author Mark Levin substantively defined the stark crossroads at which America finds itself, with his powerful book, Liberty and Tyranny. In this timely publication, he contrasts the philosophies of freedom and individualism against the seductive allure of the “nanny state,” with its dangerous potential for descent into a dehumanizing abyss, lurking just beneath the veneer of bogus promises of a social paradise. Ultimately, Levin’s work offers both a clarion warning of the impending danger, and a path to escape, if the people are sufficiently vigilant and resolved in their effort to maintain the freedoms with which they were endowed as Americans.
Now, to these greats, must be added David Limbaugh’s Crimes Against Liberty: An Indictment of President Barack Obama (Washington, D.C.: Regnery Publishing, 2010), a book which was just released this week. Applying the principles of freedom and Conservatism that he knows so well, David Limbaugh goes directly to the heart of the modern Leftist movement, as it makes its ultimate assault on America. More significantly, he firmly attaches a face to America’s newly ascendant “Evil Empire,” since its discussion rightly centers on the tactics and political agenda of Barack Hussein Obama.
In keeping with the standards of his previous best sellers, Mr. Limbaugh exhibits the thoroughness of a practiced attorney making an airtight case through the presentation of an abundance of information, accompanied by the prescient analysis that readers of his bi-weekly syndicated columns have come to expect and appreciate. From the very first page of its introduction, which stands, in and of itself, as an outstanding treatise on the precarious place where America currently finds itself, to the structure of the remainder of the work in which Mr. Limbaugh properly characterizes the criminal degradation of this nation by the Obama regime on several fronts, his writing is unparalleled in its comprehensiveness and depth.
Consider the progression of the three main segments of the book, “Offenses Against Americans,” “Offenses Against American Institutions,” and “Offenses Against America’s General Welfare and National Security.” Starting with the dubious manner in which Obama seized power, Mr. Limbaugh renders an indictment of the flamboyant, but fraudulent, tactics used to gloss over Obama’s glaring deficiencies, while touting his supposed virtues in almost satirically exaggerated terms. He then proceeds to explain how, from that position of ill-gotten power, Obama and his minions have embarked on a mission to remake America in their own sordid, Leftist image. Finally, he offers a crushing conclusion of the grave damage America will predictably suffer if the Obama vision is not vigorously opposed.
Addressing a subject of this enormity is no trifling undertaking, if one intends to do it with credibility and substance. Yet, on both counts, David Limbaugh indisputably proves he is up to the task. From the opening sentence, in which he asserts that Obama’s tenure in the White House is “already the most destructive in history,” Mr. Limbaugh makes bold assertions as to the despicable nature of the Obama administration, assertions that even many of Limbaugh's Conservative contemporaries lack the fortitude to publicly affirm.
On the heels of such contentions, Limbaugh presents a wealth of concrete facts to prove his point. And, in this department, he proves, once again, that his abilities of research and analysis are second to none. The prolific quotations and extensive footnoting in Crimes Against Liberty make it an invaluable collection of information quantifying the suspicions and distrust with which America regards the Obama White House.
But, to a far greater degree, Mr. Limbaugh uses the evidence he has amassed to undergird his irrefutable conclusions, offered in thorough and incisive commentary. For example, in his exposition of “Obama the Imperious,” he explains that “Obama’s furious attacks on Wall Street were a natural outgrowth of his anti-corporate ideology, but they were also a cynical ploy to whip up public support for his policies by stoking outrage at ‘fat-cat bankers’ and other evil capitalists who seemed to come straight out of a comic book.”
In a single sentence, he lays bare the myopic Leftism of Barack Obama, his willingness to manipulate the emotionalism of his mindless supporters, and, finally, the absurd and even juvenile basis on which the Obama regime seeks to demean and undermine any who dare to stand in opposition to its schemes. And each page of Crimes Against Liberty contains an abundance of just such hard hitting commentary, accompanied by all the necessary supporting evidence.
Sinister forces are hard at work, seeking to tear the America of freedom, prosperity, and greatness away from “We the People.” And, if their effort is successful, its horrific effects might never be undone. It is thus imperative that those who intend to preserve and protect their nation and its Constitution from these attacks be armed with a thorough understanding of the assault they face, and how to best counter it. In this regard, Americans can do no better than to gird themselves with the truth and insights of David Limbaugh’s Crimes Against Liberty.
