     For some decades now we have grown accustomed to the term neo-cons, referring to one-time Democrats, liberals, who as the 1960s wore on, questioned the leadership of that party.  As the Democrats turned to McGovern and the "Progressive" wing, proposing radical change and rejecting Cold-War solutions, the neo-cons, the new conservatives with liberal credentials, became an important sector of the Republican Party.
     Here, I am not going to detail the radical background of Barack Hussein Obama.  His mother was radical; his grandparents were happy to have him mentored by a member of the Communist Party in Hawaii; he was an advocate of critical race theories of law; he was friends with terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn; Obama even appointed a Communist as one of his czars, Van Jones.  All this and more can be fleshed out in books and articles by others.
     More than simply listing his associates, one can see the "Progressive" aspects of his policies - aiming toward a government universal health care, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, supporting anti-Western leaders like President Morsi in Egypt, who allows persecution of Christians, assaults on women, and prepares for conflict with Israel; refusal to call jihadist terrorists by name and allows a terrorist army officer to get off as "work place violence''; allows the New Black Panther Party to intimidate voters and get away with it; ditto Black racist officials in Alabama and Mississippi; seeks to abridge the 2nd Amendment with new gun legislation, and worse, new gun regulations, etc.
     Now we are beginning to see why Obama should be viewed as a neo-Com, a neo-Communist.  As his progressive program loses support, he is beginning to use the methods of a tyrant to maintain power.  At first, he and his programs were popular, and the iron hand was not needed.  But now the steel fist is becoming visible through wear of the velvet glove.
     The attack on the free press,  most of which is in his camp, is evident with his tapping into the Associated Press reporters' wires.  And Fox News reporter Rosen had not only his, but his parents phones tapped.  And there will undoubtedly be more revelations.
     And the Internal Revenue Service was used to harass conservatives.  They can sing and dance around the subject, and Obama can lie about how he favors a free press (so long as it adores him), but Obama's crowd prevented conservative groups from getting tax exempt status, status given routinely to Left wing organizations.  Worse, information collected by the IRS was then passed onto Left-wing groups, one a Democratic-Party front funded by billionarie George Soros.  Other information was passed from a group that supports the traditional family to GLAAD, a gay-lesbian group.  How much other information was passed from conservatives applying for tax-exempt status to their enemies on the Left who had such status?  Some of the questions asked by IRS were outrageous.  And if this did not raise sufficient fear in the conservatives so that they might disband, the FBI was sicced onto some of those applying.  These are police state tactics.  These were the tactics of early Communist regimes.
     Then there are the lies about the killings in Benghazi - lies that the liberal, Obama-loving media helped to promote.  Hillary assured the parents of the killed that the film maker would be jailed.  Egyptian President Morsi demanded the anti-Muslim, Christian film maker be jailed.  The film maker had nothing to do with the murders in Benghazi.  But Obama's feds raided his home in the middle of the night, and that Christian film maker is still in jail.
     Can they come for us?  Obama wants us to surrender our guns.  In reality, he wants us to surrender.  His view of government is that the Progressive way is the only way; opposition should be crushed.  Use the IRS. Use the FBI.  Give guns to Mexican drug lords (Fast and Furious), allow them for street corner hoodlums, but confiscate them from law-abiding American citizens.
     Obama is showing that he is a neo-Com.  A neo-Communist.  He moves from Progressive policies, which inevitably fail, to the need to suppress opponents of those policies, and then, stealthily, he moves toward tyranny.

PS - The supermarket weekly, The Globe, ran a headline this past week, "Obama Worse the Nixon."  True, but look at the bright side.  Perhaps the headline should have been, "Obama, - Not as Bad as Stalin, Yet."
