While running for the presidency, Obama made a mysterious and bizarre campaign promise.

He said that as president he would create "a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded" as the U.S. military, to advance his "objectives" for America.

The astonishing announcement, made July 2, 2008, to an audience in Colorado Springs, was ignored by virtually the entire media - except WND. Nobody bothered to ask Obama specifically what he meant, or how he could possibly assemble and fund such a massive civilian army, or why - and he never spoke of it again.

Fast-forward to late 2011.

"President Obama, this is your army! We are ready to march! Let's take these son-of-a-b*tches out ...!"

That was Teamsters union president James Hoffa, addressing a large Labor Day rally at which Obama also spoke, proclaiming brazenly what leftist radicals have long understood: America's largest labor unions - especially the huge government employee unions like the 3-million-member National Education Association [NEA] and 2-million-member Service Employees International Union [SEIU] - provide battalions of ground troops in the ongoing war to "fundamentally transform" America into a socialist utopia.

"But wait," you might ask. "I know most unions lean left, some engage in street tactics and their dues strongly support Democrats. But what about Obama's statement that his civilian army would be 'well-funded' by the government?"

In fact, from Day One the Obama administration has been generously "funding" the union army. From the General Motors bailout, which blatantly favored union workers, to Obamacare, whose burdensome new regulations don't apply to many unions thanks to special White House waivers exempting them; from Obama's early executive order requiring all federal agencies to accept construction bids only from contractors who agree to use union workers, to packing the D.C. bureaucracy with union officials - the Obama regime has been characterized by non-stop union payoffs, special treatment, insider access and blatant power grabs. All in return for their undying loyalty and service in "OBAMA'S ARMY."

Today, in a ghoulish, inverted mirror-image of the tea party, Americans are witnessing the "occupation" of its major cities by thousands of demonstrators - instigated in part by top union agitators like the SEIU's Stephen Lerner, and funded by leftist billionaire activist George Soros.


Highlights of "OBAMA'S ARMY" include: "
    • "Hoffa to Teamster 'army': 'Take these SOBs out'" by Drew Zahn. Vice President Joe Biden later amped up Hoffa's threats, calling opponents "barbarians" who had "declared war" on unions "

    • "Obama offers perks to college kids to join his 'army'" by Chelsea Schilling, on youngsters earning credit for pushing "change" and working on advancing Obama's agenda "

    • "Unions preparing for street chaos" by Aaron Klein, revealing how Obama-tied radicals are planning major disruptions in the coming election year "

    • "Union thugs still rely on intimidation and violence" by Art Moore, who shows that despite thousands of violent union incidents, only 3 percent end up in conviction "

    • "Tea party v. the Wall Street occupiers" by Joseph Farah, on the remarkable differences between the two groups "

    • "Largest US union behind Mideast riots?" by Aaron Klein, on one labor group's sordid ties to an organization targeting America's anti-terror ally "

    • "How public employee unions really work" by Patrice Lewis, a simple primer on corrupt and fraudulent collective bargaining "

    • "Public-sector unions choke taxpayers" by John Stossel, on how politicians obtain union political support by granting government workers generous pensions and health benefits, leaving taxpayers liable for trillions in unfunded promises "

    • "Union gangsters" by Matthew Vadum - profiles in greed and obsession with power "

    • "Obamacare was tailored to benefit labor" by Bob Unruh, on how unions helped write the unpopular law - and then got themselves exempted from it "

    • "The Communist Party's huge role in the US labor movement" by Art Moore, on how union after union has deep roots in anti-American, anti-capitalist ideology "

    • "Ronald Reagan v. Hollywood's labor unions" by David Kupelian, on how Reagan got his start in politics, and in fighting communism "

    • "Meet the extremist group in charge of teaching your children" by Phyllis Schlafly, exposing the National Education Association as far-left, anti-parent, pro-feminist, pro-homosexual "

    • "Hey, unions: There's no free lunch" by Thomas Sowell, who shows how unions "specialize in siphoning off wealth created by others" "

    • Chicago union chiefs get $56 million personal gift from lawmaker buddies - just a little perk on the taxpayers' dime "

    • When private parties talk, unions protest by Herman Cain, who assures readers, "This type of liberal lunacy and attempted intimidation is not going to work" "

    • Even FDR was against public-sector unions" by James Sherk, a comprehensive look at why giving government employees collective-bargaining power is a major disaster " and much more!

"Every army has its generals, its politicians, its propagandists and its behind-the-scenes chess-masters," said WND Managing Editor David Kupelian. "But in Obama's army, who are the ground troops?

In fact, from Day One the Obama administration has been generously "funding" the union army.

"The United States of America was born out of a bloody revolt against tyranny," says Judge Andrew Napolitano. "Yet almost from its inception, the government here has suppressed liberty." In his sixth book on the Constitution and human freedom, the popular Fox News host goes to the root of today's problems, asking: "Where does freedom come from? How can government in America exercise power that the people have not given to it? What forces have collaborated to destroy personal freedom?"

In this back-to-basics on freedom, Judge Napolitano addresses hard questions:

Do we still have a Constitution?

What are the limits to government power in a free society?

Why does the government attack, rather than defend, our rights?

If our rights are inalienable, how can the government take them away?

Do we really own any private property?

"The Judge" provides readers with a sweeping explanation of natural rights and all the philosophical, religious and ideological principles that underscore the concept of human freedom. (A $24.99 value - FREE!)
