‘Predictable’ Obama Praises the Parkland Five

Originally posted at American Thinker

Former president Barack Obama is a man who exhibits selective outrage based upon how a tragedy can benefit advancing the utopian vision.  If an event includes changing “the world as it is” into the world Obama thinks it “should be,” the former president will commend whomever he has to.

With that in mind, recently, via a piece written for Time magazine entitled “Cameron Kasky, Jaclyn Corin, David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez and Alex Wind,” Obama praised the five Parkland student-activists who made Time’s 100 Most Influential People list.

The former president wrote, “America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern.”  Obama’s article was even more “predictable.”

For starters, the ex-POTUS chided Americans for our behavior after a mass shooting:

We mourn.  Offer thoughts and prayers.  Speculate about the motives.  And then – even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns; even as the majority of gun owners support commonsense reforms – the political debate spirals into acrimony and paralysis.

Those sentiments come from a fellow whose whole career hinges on the debate that “spirals into acrimony and paralysis.”  After all, Obama is the one who laments death by guns while supporting “pervasive accessibility” to abortion on demand.  In fact, the most glaring contradiction in Obama’s Parkland stance is that 18 years ago, he would have heartily supported aborting the five teens to whom he pays Time tribute.

Nevertheless, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year, there are still approximately 33,000 gun violence deaths in the US, two thirds of which are from suicide, a right to choose Democrats likely support.  Therefore, if former President Obama is concerned about violent death, why does he ignore the statistic that says every ten days, 30,000 Americans lose their lives in an abortion facility?

As for “commonsense reforms” for firearms, isn’t it Obama who refuses to respect the fact that a majority of Americans also want “commonsense reforms” banning abortion after 20 weeks?

Either way, Obama’s words extolled the future of student activism by expressing the complimentary view that:

This time, something different is happening.  This time, our children are calling us to account[.] … [T]he Parkland, Fla., students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do.  Most of them can’t even vote yet.

Despite all his talk about lack of lobbyists, big budgets, and attack ads, in truth, Obama is well aware that anti-gun billionaires organize and fund marches and recruit the media to demonize both the Second Amendment and the NRA.  Trust me: above all, Barack Obama is a wily twister of minds.  Whenever the former president says something isn’t happening, it should call attention to what he’s probably helping bring to pass.

In addition to deception, Obama’s written homage to youthful activism included the opinion that Parkland activists possess the “power so often inherent in youth: to see the world anew; to reject the old constraints, outdated conventions and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom.”

Someone needs to ask the former U.S. president whether he considers adherence to the Bill of Rights an “old constraint, outdated convention and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom.”  And, notwithstanding the opinion that radicalized youth exercise “[t]he power to insist that America can be better,” if the Constitution he considers “deeply flawed” manages to survive the left’s assault, is Obama saying America will be worse because of it?

Meanwhile, Obama’s obsequious rant continued with the following words:

Seared by memories of seeing their friends murdered at a place they believed to be safe, these young leaders don’t intimidate easily.  They see the NRA and its allies – whether mealy-mouthed politicians or mendacious commentators peddling conspiracy theories – as mere shills for those who make money selling weapons of war to whoever can pay.  They’re as comfortable speaking truth to power as they are dismissive of platitudes and punditry.  And they live to mobilize their peers.

Wait!  Barack Obama suddenly cares about safety?  This man displays zero compassion for babies slaughtered by the millions in the womb, “a place they believed to be safe.”  Moreover, during his tenure, when police officers were assassinated in the safety of a police cruiser and Americans murdered in cities once deemed safe, then-president Obama either remained silent or used the tragedy to commiserate with the perpetrators.

With that in mind, maybe mendacity and mealy-mouthedness are not character faults a person like Obama should be highlighting.

Furthermore, one can’t help but wonder what the five educationally “dumbed down” high school students, who Obama claims “speak truth to power” and “dismiss … platitudes and punditry,” would think if they knew he had handed murderous Mexican drug cartels “weapons of war” that resulted in Americans dying.

Anyway, in typical, Obama sullied the NRA and the Republican Congress and so-called “conspiratorial” conservative pundits.  Then, while attempting to “sway” the swayable, Obama condemned political adversaries for using the “scare tactics [he uses] on much of the country” every time he speaks.

Then Obama wrote: “But by bearing witness to carnage, by asking tough questions and demanding real answers, the Parkland students are shaking us out of our complacency.”  Sorry, but the words “carnage” and “complacency” are much more fitting to discussions concerning liberal policies with high body counts.

Then, without citing that the “disproportionate victims of gun violence” live in cities where gun laws are the strictest, America’s most famous community organizer demonized, prophesied, patronized, and attempted to get out the vote through ethnic and racial “common cause” when he wrote:

The NRA’s favored candidates are starting to fear they might lose.  Law-abiding gun owners are starting to speak out.  As these young leaders make common cause with African Americans and Latinos – the disproportionate victims of gun violence – and reach voting age, the possibilities of meaningful change will steadily grow.

In conclusion, Obama pronounced:

Our history is defined by the youthful push to make America more just, more compassionate, more equal under the law.  This generation – of Parkland, of Dreamers, of Black Lives Matter – embraces that duty.  If they make their elders uncomfortable, that’s how it should be.

Undoubtedly, based on those words, what remains clear is that our nation’s 44th president continues to side with anti-gun activists, illegal aliens, and radical racist groups, all of whom believe that this country is unjust, lacks compassion, and endorses inequality.

In like manner, Obama’s piece provokes the youthful to make elder Americans “uncomfortable,” which for Barack Obama is “the world” as “it should be.”

In the end, the Parkland students are five manipulable youths Barack Obama hopes to employ in his mission to craft a “future [that] isn’t written [by] us [or them], but by [himself].”  And so, in the progressive effort to revise America, the “kids” Obama would have cheerfully aborted 18 years ago are now his new recruits.

Liberals celebrate a deadly fire on Twitter

Originally posted at American Thinker

A word to the wise: If one wants sympathy from a liberal, try to die in a shooting committed by a white male with an AR-15, not in a residential fire in a high-rise owned by a conservative president who supports the NRA.

Recently, a mental health counselor perhaps in need of mental health counseling named Jeffrey Guterman and an aging hippie atheist/sperm donor for lesbian rock stars, David Crosby, allegedly took to Twitter to cheer on a four-alarm fire that took the life of 67-year-old art dealer Todd Brassner.

One would think David Crosby, who spent time in jail for weapons and drug charges, and who nearly died without the liver transplant rocker Phil Collins paid for, would be more compassionate.  Instead, after hearing about the fire in Trump Tower, Crosby posted and then deleted a disco-themed Tweet that read: “[O]h boy…burn baby burn.”

Unlike David Crosby, Florida mental health counselor Jeffrey Guterman, who on occasion does exhibit compassion by publicly condemning domestic violence if a gun owner committed the crime…

…wasn’t as bashful.

At first, Guterman tweeted: “There is a fire in Trump Tower.  I hope everyone is safe, but I am excited.”

Question for the wise counselor: What are the chances that everyone would be safe in a fire in a 68-floor building that houses office and residential space?

Evidently, if a building belonging to someone of a differing political persuasion catches fire, the prospect of human beings burning to death is cause for Mr. Guterman to get “excited.”

Nevertheless, after being called out on Twitter for his unreserved joy concerning Trump’s Manhattan property burning, Guterman felt compelled to defend his original statement:

I got excited when I heard there was a fire at Trump Tower while also hoping there were no injuries.  So what.  I am human.  These #tRump supporters need to get a grip.  I am less excited now, but still glad.  Hoping there is major damage.

After the flames were doused and after the “major damage” was assessed, Jeffery had just cause to be delighted because four New York City firefighters were injured and the coroner removed a civilian from Trump Tower in a body bag.

Maybe it wasn’t said outright, but what could be gleaned from Guterman’s and Crosby’s public expression is that for the sin of purchasing an apartment from Donald Trump, occupants of Trump Tower deserved to have their lives threatened and property destroyed.  If Trump Tower had burned to the ground and killed everyone inside, would Guterman and Crosby have danced in the street like Muslims in New Jersey watching the World Trade Towers fall on 9-11?

The situation is sad, but selective compassion isn’t exclusive to liberals on Twitter.  It’s pervasive to progressives on the whole.

Typically, liberals cry if a catastrophe advances their agenda, but they often ignore the tragic demise of those who oppose their viewpoint.  So Guterman’s and Crosby’s opinions are symptomatic of what is probably the consensus on the left.

Take for instance the slaughter of 3,000 innocent unborn babies every day.  While innocents die, rather than weep, liberals march in pink hats and get as “excited” as Guterman at the thought of death and destruction.

If some babies miraculously make it out of the womb alive, survive until high school age, and then sadly die at the hand of a white male with an AR-15, the liberals who once marched for the right to abort those killed by the gunman publicly mourn.

Moreover, if a vegan animal rights activist Muslim female with a registered 9mm handgun shoots up and wounds three people, and then commits suicide in the food court of YouTube HQ, the culprit’s political profile determines whether or not people like Guterman and Crosby acknowledge the event on Twitter.

On the other hand, if a white madman with an affinity for the Confederate flag should happen to shoot black churchgoers, a liberal president who usually mocks Bibles and Christianity will gladly turn a funeral into a racially charged anti-gun rally by singing “Amazing Grace.”

Motivated strictly by agenda, liberals like Crosby and Guterman disregard gun deaths in an anti-gun zone like Chicago, where innocent children are laid out in coffins in numbers too high to comprehend.  Meanwhile, if shedding a tear defames police officers, those of Guterman’s and Crosby’s ilk replace professional mourners on Twitter by paying tribute to thugs killed by police in self-defense.

Even though illegal aliens murder Americans inside sanctuary cities and kill 3,000 Americans a year in DWI-related road accidents, those who think like Guterman and Crosby either downplay the sorry state of affairs or try to find a reason to speak out on behalf of the perpetrators.  However, if illegal aliens die sneaking into America, left-leaners are frequently the ones to post links to articles that memorialize the fallen by displaying skulls like saintly relics.

In the end, it took fire at Trump Tower for Jeffery Guterman and David Crosby to reveal the attitude of liberals who laugh at misfortune and shed tears – not over a lost life, but in joyful anticipation that tragedy can help advance an agenda or prove a point.

Behold the Lowlights of Michelle Obama’s Trump-Bashing Tour

Judging from their vocal criticism of President Trump, it’s clear that neither Mr. nor Mrs. Obama shares G.W. Bush’s viewpoint that it’s terrible for the country and the presidency to undermine a current president.

Barack does it by praising anything and anyone who opposes the president’s policies and, by doing so, manages to disparage the man who took his place.  Michelle, on the other hand, is much less diplomatic.  Instead of using discretion, Mrs. Obama vomits out anti-Trump venom wherever she goes.

Michelle’s Trump-Bashing Tour started right after the 2016 election, when Mrs. Hope and Change told Oprah Winfrey that because Trump was elected, “now we’re feeling what not having hope feels like.”

In May of 2017, Mrs. Obama spoke out against Trump when he dared loosen the stringent dietary restrictions connected to her unpopular school lunch program.  Months later, at an Inbound marketing conference in Boston, Michelle rebuked a segment of the sisterhood when she declared, “Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their [sic] own voice.”

The following month, at a Pennsylvania Conference for Women, Mrs. Obama used a hand motion to imply that Trump lowered the bar concerning women and minorities.  Then, forgetting that she did the same thing to Laura Bush in 2009, Michelle mocked First Lady Melania Trump for handing her a boxed gift on the steps of the White House on Inauguration Day 2017.

Simply put, Michelle Obama switched focus from dancing with The Tonight Show‘s host, Jimmy Fallon, to stirring up hatred towards Trump.  Instead of organic gardening, the former president’s outspoken wife now advocates for minorities and women by belittling a male president.

Let’s not forget that before being elected, both Mr. and Mrs. Obama believed they were the “ones we’ve been waiting for.”  Now, that Obama’s Tenure of Terror is over, the twosome’s newest goal is to find a way to reproduce thousands, if not millions, of little Michelle and Barack facsimiles to dispatch across the planet in hopes of furthering the gospel of discord.

In the meantime, the former first lady furthers that cause by sharing Trump putdowns at professional development gatherings for women.

Recently, at the Simmons Leadership Conference in Boston, the former first lady told the audience that the Obama presidency “was like having the ‘good parent’ at home.  The responsible parent, the one who told you to eat your carrots and go to bed on time.”  Ratcheting up the hyperbole, Michelle then pointed out, “And now we have the other parent.  We thought it’d feel fun – maybe it feels fun for now because we can eat candy all day and stay up late and not follow the rules.”

Judging from her comments about carrots and bedtime, Michelle must still be of the opinion that without Obama diktats concerning vegetable portions and salt quotas, sleep schedules, and general guidelines for survival, with “the other parent” in charge, Americans (children that we are) have devolved into hog-wild, candy-eating, sleep-deprived rule-breakers.

In addition to criticizing Trump for allowing grownups to make decisions about what they eat, how long they sleep, and how they exercise freedom, in Boston, Michelle also expressed disappointment about that famous politician in a pantsuit who keeps babbling to covens of women about why she lost.

Michelle besmirched Trump by stating that Clinton was “the best-qualified candidate” but also explained that “[Hillary] wasn’t perfect, but she was way more perfect than many of the alternatives.”  Put another way, Michelle “Feels Fun” Obama considers “wasn’t perfect … way more perfect.”

Michelle also told the ladies that in addition to Putin, Comey, misogynists, Stepford Wives, WikiLeaks, cable news, and voter suppression, Trump defeated incoherent loser Hillary because of low voter turnout.  After all, without the New Black Panthers and ACORN to inspire the electorate in 2016, voters were unwilling to go out and elect a woman who can’t walk up or down stairs without falling.

Choosing not to expand upon the other possible reasons Hillary couldn’t “get out the vote,” Michelle also reminded “wes” in the audience that “[w]e’ve got to be willing, when we do find qualified people, to vote for them.  And we didn’t do that in this election.”

Then, demonstrating a level of hubris surpassed only by Barack, Michelle soothed the “disheartened” in the room with thoughts concerning herself and BFF Oprah:

So I think people should be less … disheartened that me and Oprah don’t want to run, and more disheartened by the fact that Hillary Clinton, probably the most qualified person to ever seek the office of the presidency, lost.  She lost.

If Michelle Obama thinks that in the history of this nation, Hillary Clinton was the “most qualified person to ever seek the office of the presidency” then the former FLOTUS clearly believes that high levels of corruption are what qualifies a person to run for president.  Either that or Michelle has finally conceded that Barack wasn’t the most qualified person to seek the office of the presidency.

Whatever her intent, after showering Hillary’s orthopedic sandals with accolades, Michelle announced, yet again, that she, Michelle, isn’t running for president and explained her decision in the following way:

And you can’t just say, “You’re a woman.  Run.”  And we can’t look for women like that.  We can’t just say “let’s find the women we like and ask them [sic] to do it,” because there are a million women who are inclined and who do have the passion for politics.

Then Michelle praised herself and unwittingly demeaned Barack by saying:

Just because I gave a good speech, and I’m smart and intelligent doesn’t mean I should be the next president.  That’s been our problem.  We’re very shortsighted about how we think about selecting the commander in chief.

And so, based on those and other insightful ruminations, as of today, Mrs. Obama isn’t running for president – not because the former first lady believes she’d lose if she were to run, but because, at this juncture, “good parent” Michelle Obama prefers stroking her ego on a nationwide Trump-Bashing

 

 

Dystopia: How The Multi-Cultural Fairytale Became An Absolute Nightmare

Originally posted at  CLASH Daily

After being chided by Democrats for years for wanting to maintain the western influence over our traditional American culture, and after being labeled xenophobic by liberals who falsely believe all cultures are equal, the diversity fairytale is rapidly morphing into a multicultural nightmare.

Currently, dwelling among us are people from cultures that believe in terrifying things such as honor killing, genital mutilation, and the stoning of women. In addition to jihadists, El Salvadoran MS-13 gang members are on a nation-wide rape and murder spree.

Joining illegals who come from countries where defecating on the street is a common practice, the existing tapestry of multicultural gloriousness also embraces Third World diseases, English taking a back seat to Spanish and an influx of machismo invaders from countries where femicide, spousal abuse, and sex with underage females is the norm.

In other words, illegals disrespect America’s immigration laws for reasons other than “wanting to do jobs Americans won’t do.” Moreover, contrary to liberal opinion, not all illegal immigrants are innocent college student or hardworking heads of loving families.

Take for example, Miguel Paloalto Lucas. Miguel came to America from Mexico where in some areas the age of consent is 12-years-old. In 2012, Miguel was charged with sodomizing a 15-year-old girl. When that happened the illegal immigrant helped introduce the state of Missouri to the culturally diverse practice among some foreign men of sexually assaulting children.

In 2016, in Bill Clinton’s home state of Arkansas, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico named Jose-Manuel Garcia Gonzalez was arrested for raping and “sexually grooming” a five-year-old girl. Last year, a similar crime was perpetrated on a young child when it’s alleged a 19-year-old illegal immigrant named Douglas Hus-Flores sexually assaulted a 3-year-old girl in Connecticut.

In Cedar City, Utah, 32-year-old Victor Francisco Michel-Lara sexually assaulted a 7-year-old girl not once, but “thousands of times.” Not to be outdone by Victor, an illegal immigrant named Edgar Mendoza, broke into a New Jersey home, climbed into the bed of a 6-year-old girl, and raped her while her unaware father sat downstairs.

The following month, a man of diverse cultural practices, Leonel Vazquez, after being deported back to Mexico twice, returned to America to rape a mentally disabled girl in Kentucky. Then, around Christmas 2017, multiculturalism paid a visit to Kansas when a Mexican man with nineteen deportations raped an underage girl on a Greyhound bus.

In February of 2018, in the state of North Carolina alone, twelve illegals were charged with 88 instances of child rape.

Recently, in a Louisiana Walmart, the national bastion of multicultural shopping, a “possible illegal immigrant” who, thank God didn’t have a gun, but did have a machete, adhered to cultural tradition when he tried to kidnap two children.

In the middle of the afternoon, Billy Yoe Budier-Herrera entered Walmart where he approached a mother with a 2-year-old toddler strapped into a shopping cart. Budier-Herrera told the woman that if she didn’t do what he said, she would die.

When the mother attempted to get away from Budier-Herrera with her child, he blocked her passage and signaled a threat by placing his hand on his 10-inch machete.

According to the police, the “possible illegal immigrant” threatened to kill the toddler if his mother didn’t obey. The mother didn’t obey so Budier-Herrera grabbed hold of the boy and attempted to yank him out of the grocery cart and run off.

While struggling with the machete-wielding immigrant, the child’s mother pulled the boy back. At one point, the mother ran behind the deli counter with the child begging for someone to help. That’s when store employees intervened.

In response, Budier-Herrera ran into the meat and poultry section where he pulled the machete out of his waistband and swung it around before running away. On his way out of Walmart, Budier-Herrera attempted to grab another infant from a grocery cart but couldn’t because the baby was strapped in tightly with the safety belt.

Store employees and an off-duty police officer tackled the man who not only had a machete; he also had pepper spray and a handmade shiv. Budier-Herrara was arrested and charged with an immigration detainer as well as two counts of kidnapping of a child and other offenses.

What Budier-Herrara wanted with the two children can only be surmised but based on an illegal immigrant in Las Vegas who videotaped himself on his iPhone raping a 4-year-old girl the possibilities are endless.

And so, Democrats and open border advocates will continue to try to make Americans feel guilty for opposing the type of diversity that comes via an influx of people whose cultural reality is opposed to ours. Meanwhile, because of the illegal pedophiles the left welcome into America with open arms, children are no longer safe riding in the front seat of a shopping cart at Walmart.


 

Oh, goody: A ‘million young Barack or Michelle Obamas’

Originally posted at American Thinker

One of the fundamental tenets of Christianity is that as disciples of Jesus Christ, believers are called “to put off our old selves … and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God” (Ephesians 4:22).  In the secular world, where humanity often esteems itself a deity, a counterfeit option now exists among self-proclaimed man-gods who encourage lesser beings to emulate whatever it is they tell them to do.

Emulation is what the resurrected community organizer and former president and his radical wife now say they hope will occur with Obama.org disciples.

Recently, at a Klick Health’s Muse event in New York City, Michelle Obama talked about passing the baton to followers.  The former first lady sounded somewhat like Jesus, saying, “Whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do because I am going to the Father” (John 14:12).

Simply put, despite the commandment that says, “You shall have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3), Michelle spoke of the Obama Foundation as if it were a religion.  And if that’s the case, rest assured: Marxism is the gospel, and community organizing is the tool of evangelism, and Barack and Michelle are gods.

During the Klick-Q&A, Michelle denied rumors that she aspires to “wake up [again] in a house built by slaves.”  Instead, the former first lady explained to saddened voters: “I’m not going to run for president.  Because I think it’s a better investment to invest in creating thousands of mes.  We don’t need just one – we need thousands and thousands.”

Sorry, but “thousands and thousands” of mini-Michelle Obamas clogging the highways and byways sounds more like a nightmare than an encouraging dream for the future.

Nevertheless, half the Obama team apparently feels that multitudes of angry, racist, bitter partisans, made in the image and likeness of a woman who hates America, could do more to advance the cause of chaos than one singular entity who, quite frankly, would rather be doing yoga in Hawaii.

When Michelle Obama said, “As an older leader, I think an important part of leadership is stepping out of the way and making room,” it sounded more like Jesus’s Great Commission than an attempt to recruit “civic innovators.”

It’s 2018 A.D., and Michelle Obama announces that she’s fading into the background, but before she does, she will bequeath authority to a vast horde of Obama-supporters?

By “stepping out of the way and making room,” the former first lady authorized believers to go forth “and make disciples of all nations.”  In other words, Michelle commissioned Obama followers to baptize the faithful in the name of Karl Marx, Saul Alinsky, and Barack Obama, and to teach him “who has ears to hear” to obey whatever the fundamental transformist tells him to do.

At the event, Michelle also lamented that in politics, “[w]e’re not finding that new energy out there.”  So, rather than allow the “bright young people doing some amazing things” – to do those amazing things – America’s previous FLOTUS said she plans to duplicate none other than herself and to dispatch, to the four corners of the earth, Michelle doubles.

If Shelley’s narcissistic self-love weren’t enough to scare the daylights out of anyone with half a brain, the popish leader of the Obama Foundation, former president Barack Obama himself, confirmed his wife’s self-serving sentiments by taking the sermon about Obama-replication all the way to Asia.

In Japan, Barack established that both he and Mrs. Obama agree that individualism is a quality to avoid.

Instead, the head of the Obama Foundation preached that the only two people on the planet worthy of imitation are he and his wife.  If the former president’s comments were to be analyzed in the biblical sense, what’s evident is that Barack believes he and Michelle are “the way the truth and the life” (John 14:6).

The former president shared with the Asian audience that he and Michelle both realize that the presidency constrained their ability to create “a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas.”  Now, free of restrictions, the duo is committed to inspiring young people to drop those nets and follow “the ones we’ve been waiting for[.]”

Put differently, the gospel Barry and his helpmeet currently preach stresses that uniqueness be shunned and Obama-conformity embraced.

Apparently, the strategy is that with the right amount of indoctrination, impressionable young Americans will grab the baton Obama hands them in the “relay race that is human progress” and use it to beat freedom-loving people into submission.  Wait!  Is Barry’s “relay race” in any way related to the “marathon” Obama housemate Valerie Jarrett mentioned in her March for Our Lives tweet?

Either way, it appears as if the Obama Foundation is to Barack what Capernaum was to Jesus: a base of operation to venture forth from in the quest to achieve a higher ministerial goal.  For Jesus, the objective was to preach the Kingdom of God.  For Obama, the aim is to raise an army of community organizers to follow in his footsteps ushering in dictatorial statism via the instigation of worldwide chaos.

Obama expressed it this way:

The single most important thing I can do is to help develop the next generation[.] … After I left office, what I realized is that the Obama Foundation could potentially create a platform for young, up-and-coming leaders, both in the United States and all around the world to come together, meet together, create a digital platform where they could exchange information.

If I could do that effectively, then I would create a hundred, or a thousand, or a million young Barack Obamas or Michelle Obamas.

Sounding like the Creator, Obama once tweeted, “I’m asking you to believe.  Not in my ability to create change – but in yours.”

Thus, what is becoming abundantly clear is that the Obama Foundation is neither a benign non-profit organization nor an all-inclusive institution to groom “young, up-and-coming leaders.”  Instead, Obama.org is a refuge where professed messiah Barack and wife Michelle work to create a generation of subversive anarchists to help usher in the utopian religion of the progressive left.

Marching forward with Barack Obama

Originally posted at American Thinker

Frothing at the mouth in anticipatory glee over the prospect of a horde of high school students delivering a deathblow to a “deeply flawed” Constitution, once again, Barack Obama aired his feelings on Twitter.

Just last month, in a tweet encouraging “young people” to “march and organize to remake the world [not as it is but] as [Marxists think it] should be,” Obama quoted Saul Alinsky.

More recently, while Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg inadvertently gave a Nazi salute and Emma “LGBT” Gonzalez displayed a Cuban flag on her right sleeve, Barack took to Twitter again.

This time, the former president said the following:

Question: Does Barry think token references to “angry Black women” somehow give credibility to leftist ideas?  Either way, whatever the motivation to include Michelle, by and large, the former president’s latest tweet was classic Obama.

As always, Barack began by mentioning how “inspired” he is by the “young people.”  Then, after his usual perfunctory “inspired” comment, Obama went on to praise the Jugend for having “made [the] marches happen.”  The problem with Barry’s second remark is that he, more than anyone, is well aware that left-wing sources financed the march.

Nonetheless, with a direct reference to Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals #8, which instructs revolutionaries to “keep the pressure on,” Barack then encouraged anti-gun activists to “keep at it.”  The former community change agitator also sounded confident that “nothing,” including the Second Amendment, “can stand in the way of millions of voices calling for change.”

Rest assured: Obama slipping Alinsky into a tweet is not an innocuous incident, nor is it a coincidence when a street thug of his stature urges large groups of left-wingers to “march forward.”  In other words, by prodding 800,000 useful idiots with the words “you’re leading us forward,” Obama added Marxism to the Alinsky mix.

The formal adoption of “Forward” as a campaign slogan came about during the 2012 presidential campaign.  For the record, the concept of progressives pressing forward was not Barack Obama’s idea; it’s a concept associated with European Marxism.

In an article dated April 30, 2012, titled “New Obama slogan has long ties to Marxism, socialism,” Victor Morgan of the Washington Times explained:

The slogan ‘Forward’ reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

In the piece, Morgan cited Vladimir Lenin’s political journal Vpered! (the Russian word for “forward”) and mentioned two German publications with similar themes, entitled Vorwärts, (the German word for “forward”).  Morgan wrote:

One was the daily newspaper of the Social Democratic Party of Germany whose writers included Friedrich Engels and Leon Trotsky. It still publishes as the organ of Germany’s SDP, though that party has changed considerably since World War II. Another was the 1844 biweekly reader of the Communist League. Karl Marx, Engels and Mikhail Bakunin are among the names associated with that publication.

At National Review Online, Jonah Goldberg clarified further how Obama views the “Forward” concept.  Goldberg wrote:

“Forward” is simply a synopsis of the progressive understanding of the State.  The State has always been seen by the left as the engine of history.  When Obama says he’s about going Forward, he’s also saying that he thinks the government is the thing that moves us all forward, that the State is the source of Progress[.] … If we are to go forward it must in the saddle of the State.

Thus, the word “forward” has profound significance to Barack Obama, as well as to the left.

Even still, Barack “Share the Wealth” Obama had never come right out and identified himself as a full-fledged statist, but, as his time in the White House demonstrated, the former president was, and is, deeply committed to the hope that the state will one day restrict the right to bear arms.

In the meantime, Obama’s desire to appear above the gun fray may be why he dispatched housemate Valerie Jarrett to bash the NRA at the March for Our Lives, and to do it while he stayed home tweeting kudos to juvenile anti-gun activists.

On Obama’s behalf, Jarrett got to fraternize with MSNBC celebriteen David Hogg and to reaffirm the progressive commitment to what the left now refers to as the “marathon.”

Barry’s mouthpiece even found time to promote her boss’s false talking point that just days after surviving a deadly school shooting, traumatized students secured a venue, chartered buses, came up with a slogan, and organized a march.

Meanwhile, in hopes of continuing to desensitize the public to Marxism, back home in his $8.1-million Kalorama mansion, Barack Obama hid behind his keyboard.  Tweeting that marchers are “leading us forward” was likely an attempt by Obama to infuse the discussion with another socialist catchphrase.

In the end, after spending eight years manipulating the psyche of an easily fooled public, under the auspices of tweeting in support of a spontaneous event, Barack Obama confirmed that marching forward is still an essential part of  “fundamentally transforming America.”

EXCLUSIVE: Was Trump’s Congratulatory Call to Putin Wrong?

Originally posted at BLUNT FORCE TRUTH

Once again, politicians and pundits have short memories.  It’s as if those who dislike Donald Trump forgot what Washington D.C. overlooked when Obama occupied the White House. For instance, in March 2012, Russia’s Vladimir Putin won an election that, at the time, the New York Times implied was rigged:

A day after claiming an overwhelming victory in Russia’s presidential election, Vladimir V. Putin … faced a range of challenges to his legitimacy, including charges of fraud from international observers and a defiant opposition that vowed to keep him from serving his full six-year term.

On the day of the Russian election, the U.S. State Department, headed by Hillary ‘Uranium One’ Clinton, congratulated the people of Russia in a statement that said the United States “looks forward to working with the president-elect after the results are certified and he is sworn in.”

The following day, a supplemental State Department press release cited the concerns of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).  The organization’s suspicions included, “conditions under which the [Russian] campaign was conducted, the partisan use of government resources, and procedural irregularities on election day, among other issues.” On behalf of the OSCE, the State Department went on to “urge Russian authorities… to ensure that the procedures for future elections …be more transparent.”

It’s uncanny how similar that is when compared to some of the election antics Democrats employ.

Nonetheless, the election glitches as well as Russia’s failing record on democracy, the rule of law, and human rights, didn’t stop Nobel Peace Prize winner/negotiator extraordinaire, Barack Obama from dialing up Vlad to commend the president-elect on his victory.

Rather than broach State Department and OSCE concerns, according to the White House:

President Obama highlighted achievements in U.S.-Russia relations over the past three years with President Medvedev, including cooperation on Afghanistan, the conclusion and ratification of the START agreement, Russia’s recent invitation to join the World Trade Organization (WTO) and cooperation on Iran. President Obama and President-Elect Putin agreed that the successful reset in relations should be built upon during the coming years.

Obama also told Putin that he looked forward to the G-8 summit at Camp David and  “…agreed to continue discussions on areas where the United States and Russia have differed, including Syria and missile defense…[and to]…continue…efforts to find common ground and remove obstacles to better relations.”

Evidently, 2012 Barack remained indifferent toward Russian threats because at the end of March, at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea, Obama reaffirmed the tone of his post-election telephone call during a hush-hush chat with Russian President Medvedev.  During that live mic dispatch, Obama asked Dmitry to convey to Vladimir that after the 2012 election Barack would be more “flexible.”

Then, during the October 2012 debate when his Republican opponent Mitt Romney, suggested Russia was the most significant “geopolitical threat facing America,” the former president reestablished his lack of trepidation concerning Russia yet again.  In response to Romney’s assertion, the soon-to-be “flexible” Obama mockingly quipped back, “And, the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

Fast-forward to March 2018 and Vladimir Putin has won re-election.

In response to Russia’s selection, the OSCE reiterated its 2012 concerns surrounding Russian “Restrictions on the fundamental freedoms of assembly, association and expression, as well as on candidate registration, …[and the] limited the space for political engagement [which] resulted in a lack of genuine competition.”

Notwithstanding these and other concerns, President Trump followed Obama’s lead and phoned Putin. The President offered his congratulations and refrained from discussing things like Russia’s meddling in U.S. elections, nerve agent attacks on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, and the sanctions the U.S. recently imposed on Russia for “malicious cyber attacks.

Just like Obama in 2012, Trump chose to limit the call to discuss “shared interests” and a prosed plan to meet with Putin in the future. The only difference between 2012 and 2018 in that unlike Barack Obama, Donald Trump’s call to Vladimir has garnered disapproval from the left and criticism from some on the right.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had this to say: “When I look at a Russian election, what I see is a lack of credibility in tallying the results. Calling him wouldn’t have been high on my list.”  Dependable Trump faultfinder, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) chimed in, saying:

An American president does not lead the free world by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections. And by doing so with Vladimir Putin, President Trump insulted every Russian citizen who was denied the right to vote in a free and fair election to determine their country’s future, including the countless Russian patriots who have risked so much to protest and resist Putin’s regime.

With friends like McConnell and McCain, who needs Democrat adversaries like Virginia’s Democratic Senator Tim Kaine, who once said that Trump is a “president who acts like he’s Vladimir Putin’s defense lawyer.”

In fact, the reaction to Trump’s Russian election telephone call dredges up memories of Mrs. Obama, who, after bringing Laura Bush a boxed gift on Inauguration Day 2010, mocked first lady Melania Trump for presenting her with a boxed gift on Inauguration Day 2016.

Duplicity is how the Washington D.C. rolls, especially when it comes to all things Trump. In the end, that duplicity is evidenced by double-dealing politicians and pundits alike, most of whom withheld criticism when Obama called Russia’s newly elected president in 2012, but who now condemn Donald Trump for doing and saying the same thing.

Oh, No! ‘What Happened’ to Hillary’s Wrist?

Originally posted at American Thinker

Recently, while visiting India’s ancient city of Mandu, in Madhya Pradesh, accident-prone tourist Hillary Clinton lost her footing and skidded down the stairs of 13th-century Jahaz Mahal.  It happened as Mrs. Clinton and an escort descended the stone stairs like the mother of a bride being ushered to the head table.

The former first lady’s unsuccessful effort to steady herself was remedied by a white male escort who likely convinced his wife to vote for Trump.

In any case, looking as if she had slipped on a banana peel, three quarters of the way down the staircase, the failed presidential candidate unintentionally headed into a yoga straddle split with one leg entirely in midair.

That’s when a second white male escort, wearing a matching straw hat, hurried to the side of the portly politician.  Attempting to help the men steer her carefully onto terra firma, Hillary kicked off her orthopedic sandals and tried to grip the stone with her gecko toes.

It’s horrible to say, but at 71 years old, Hillary should avoid sudden jerking motions, because lurching forward, backward, or side-to-side often results in incontinence issues for senior citizens with aging bladders.  So, after the stair incident, it’s not surprising that Miss Hillary thought it would be wise for everyone involved if she avoided the hot sun and instead slipped out of her white capris and soaked for a spell in a bath at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur.

Hillary, who broke her toe in London last year, has proven that elderly pear-shaped women do lose their balance, slip, and fall.

Hillary explained the London incident in the following way:

I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards.  I tried to get up and it really hurt.  I’ve broken my toe.  I’ve received excellent care from your excellent health service.

Wait!  Hillary expects people to believe she was “running in heels with a cup of coffee talking over her shoulder”?  Furthermore, she also wants us to accept the excuse that gravity threw her onto the floor and she couldn’t get up because “it really hurt”?  Sorry, but a more believable explanation would have nothing to do with “coffee” being in that cup and more likely to do with a cantankerous drunk losing balance while yelling orders at her assistants.

Regardless, and despite the discomfort, the quintessential politician did manage to remember to use a broken toe moment to send a thumbs-up to Britain’s socialized health care system.

Regrettably, this year, that same thumb may be out of commission for a while. Lacking a thumb is unfortunate, because Hillary’s most recent crack-up provided the perfect opportunity for the patient to patronize Obamacare physicians of Indian descent back home in America.

Here’s what happened this time!

After a wind gust caused her to stumble on stone steps, and after nearly crashing into and killing half her team, the delicate damsel endeavored to scale the side of a large freestanding marble tub in her $1,300-a-night hotel room.  That’s when the woman who is turning into a bit of a sideshow slipped and injured the wrist she’s been using to wave to the peasants on the “What Happened” tour of India.

Collapse, contusions, concussions, and blood clots are everyday occurrences that Hillary attendants are used to handling.  That’s why, with all the marble and soapy water, if Hillary were to be knocked unconscious, Huma could handle it.  Hillary’s sidekick is so adept at medical emergencies that while texting Carlos Danger on her iPhone with her free hand, she could locate boss lady under a blanket of Mr. Bubble, drag her dead weight over the side of the tub, and administer CPR.

Hillary’s accident was eerily reminiscent of the late Whitney Houston’s untimely end.  Moreover, the bath episode is especially scary because just last week, Bollywood’s first female superstar, Sridevi Kapoor, tragically lost consciousness in the tub and accidentally drowned in a hotel room.  Luckily, America’s former first lady survived, but that injured wrist certainly put the kibosh on the plans she may have had to try out ankle bells, learn Bollywood dance moves, or guzzle Indian beer.

At first, the doctors who rushed to the palace diagnosed Queen Hillary with a sprain and wrapped the wrist in an Ace bandage.  Mrs. Clinton was advised to cancel plans to visit Mehrangarh Fort, to rest, and to follow up with a doctor in three days.

Despite the diagnosis, similar to what Americans experience whenever Hillary becomes verbally passionate about her right to tell us what to do, as the night wore on, the pain in Hillary’s wrist became unbearable.  As a result, helpers ferried Mrs. Clinton to a hospital at 5:00 A.M., where doctors took a C.T. scan and confirmed that the former first lady’s waving wrist was indeed fractured.

Either way, as of today, the public speaking leg of Hillary’s “What Happened” tour appears somewhat waylaid.

At least for a few days, Clinton will be unable to demonize President Trump publicly or blame her crushing defeat on racist, misogynist white males who coerced their docile white wives, meek mothers, subservient sisters, and compliant Caucasian co-workers into pulling the lever for Donald J. Trump.

God knows that with the way this expedition has gone thus far, the last thing Hillary needs is to strangle herself in cotton yarn on a rustic loom.  Even so, as part of the touring portion of her trip, Hillary may still do touristy things like watch carpet-weavers in bright turbans weave durry in Salawas village, “land of magic carpets.”  While she does, it appears Hillary has chosen to skip collecting signatures on the plaster cast she has hidden under a customized kurta.

Kurta or no kurta, doing damage to ancient structures, cracking marble tubs, and destroying foreign footpaths is a dreadful way for the “clumsiest woman in the world” to leave a memorable impression on India.

Sixty Million Pairs of Baby Booties

Sounding like a global extension of Saul Alinsky’s vision to transform “the world as it is [into] the world as it should be,” activist group Avaaz are committed to changing “the world we have [into] the world most people everywhere want.” 

Avaaz describes itself as being “the world’s largest online activist community.” Founded in 2007 by New York-based Executive Director Ricken Patel, Avaaz sponsors worldwide politicking and does it by addressing issues leftists believe are important such as: “protecting the lungs of the planet” and “ending dog torture in Yulin.”

Of late, human rights have captured Avaaz’s attention, especially as those rights pertain to limiting the Second Amendment.  In other words, a group that prides itself on the “ethic of global interdependence” is now endeavoring to influence the future of the US Constitution.

Well aware of Saul Alinsky’s Radical Rule #5, which says “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” Avaaz recently joined the gun control effort by bringing the “heartbreak of gun violence directly to Congress’ doorstep.”  Within hours of the shooting, the group somehow managed to be driving three ‘Outside Ebbing, Missouri’-style billboards around Senator Marco Rubio’s Florida office.  The billboards read, “Slaughtered in school,” “And still no gun control?” and “How come, Marco Rubio?”

Next up on the Avaaz agenda is to participate in the effort to shame lawmakers into submission via the March for Our Lives, which converges on Washington DC’s  Pennsylvania Avenue on March 24th.

In the run-up to that event,  just as they did in Paris on behalf of climate change, Avaaz has placed 7,000 pairs of empty shoes on the lawn of the US Capitol.  Avaaz says the shoes “represent the number of children who died because of gun violence.”

To demand Congress “honor kids with gun control,” Avaaz collected shoes from celebrities, family members of gun violence victims, as well as everyday anti-Second Amendment citizens from every liberal blue state in America.

The problem with hauling all that footwear to the Capitol is that Time Magazine only “counted six adults and 35 children killed in [Parkland-type] school shootings” since 2013. The New York Times analysis of the Gun Violence Archive, “tallied 239 school shootings since 2014, including those on college campuses, resulting in 138 deaths.”

That’s why the Avaaz effort “memorializes the 7,000 children who have been killed by gun violence since the Sandy Hook school shooting” with roughly one shoe for every child the CDC claims died since December 2012.

If shoes without feet are the visual Avaaz feels makes the most lasting impression, there’s a more poignant message the human rights group should pursue.

Rather than the 14,000 shoes, on behalf of the 60-million unborn American babies eradicated since abortion was legalized in 1973, how about Avaaz switch from sneakers to baby booties?

Since Newtown, about 6.5 million American babies have been aborted, which means Avaaz could haul 13-million booties to Washington DC.  That’s 12,993,000 more booties than shoes.

What a powerful #NotOneMore visual statement it would make to place one set of knitted booties for each pair of tiny feet that were cruelly ripped from the womb by either a scalpel, suction hose, or saline.  Avaaz could memorialize the 3,000 lives lost per day and do it by switching focus from the Second Amendment to Roe v. Wade, from school shootings to dilation and evacuation, from AR-15s to suction catheters.

If Avaaz wants to stun the senses, why not place 120-million individual pink and blue booties in rows, each one belonging on the foot of sixty million lost children denied the right to life since 1973?

If the global community activists want to prove human rights are indeed a concern in America, rather than trolling Marco Rubio or saving fin whales from slaughter, charter activists could erect three blood-red billboards in front of the Library of Congress or the Lincoln Memorial.

What a powerful way to “close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want” than to speak for the voiceless who were: “Slaughtered in the womb.”  Or to challenge pro-choice politicians with questions like: “And still abortion on demand?” or “How long America, how long?”

And so, for every day those 7,000 pairs of empty shoes sit outside the US Capitol, inside abortion clinics all across America the silent screams of 3,000 babies cry out for someone – anyone – to memorialize their lives.

More Than Coincidence? ‘The Lindsey Vonn Effect’ Keeps Steamrolling Trump’s Critics

Originally posted at CLASH Daily

Karma is defined as “destiny or fate, following as effect from cause.” In Christian circles, it’s the Biblical principle of “sowing and reaping.” Time and again this simple cause and effect pattern seems to afflict those who publicly deride our current president. The trend started to emerge soon after a bevy of Republican candidates systematically were eliminated from the race for the White House and Hillary was roundly KO’d on Election Day.

Take for example US skier and Olympic gold medal hopeful, Lindsey Vonn. Before the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang Lindsey proudly announced that she would represent the American people in South Korea, but not President Trump. Soon after that presidential proclamation, Lindsey found herself slipping and sliding and crashing into walls.

As a result of Lindsey’s hubris, the injured Olympic darling failed to medal in her event. The disaster that followed Lindsey publicly renouncing Donald Trump should probably be called “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” for that which occurs whenever Trump-bashing culminates in an unfortunate event.

Hillary Clinton has suffered many such moments. Since she lost the 2016 election to Trump a desperate Hillary has been traveling around trying to vindicate herself to whoever will pay large sums of money to listen to her try to explain What Happened.

“The Lindsey Vonn Effect” began before the election but kicked in fully after Hillary lost and started hawking her explanatory book. In fact, in October of 2017, Mrs. Clinton while on a “What Happened” book tour in London, broke her toe after falling down a flight of stairs. The undefeatable woman who Democrats think had the election stolen from her hobbled around in a boot for months.

More recently, in India, while dressed in an ethnic outfit that looked like a cross between hospital scrubs and traditional Indian attire, Mrs. Clinton was touring the 15th-century Jahaz Mahal in Dhar’s Mandu mere hours after trash-talking Donald Trump. That’s when Hillary slid down the stone staircase. Was Hillary the victim of “The Lindsey Vonn Effect”?

And, to make matters worse, this “crash and burn” event took place just days after Hillary criticized white women for leaning on white men.

Tripping and falling isn’t Hillary’s only affliction. In fact, while out justifying her profound loss on the liberal speaking circuit, Hillary will frequently be shut down by uncontrollable coughing fits.

Hillary’s not the only one who has felt the sting of “The Lindsey Vonn Effect.”

For one, Trump-hating comedian Jimmy Kimmel has been unrelenting in his criticism of the President, especially on issues such as healthcare and the Second Amendment. Apparently, Kimmel was so busy hating the POTUS he didn’t take time to notice the negative critics-versus-Trump pattern.

Thus, after hosting this year’s Oscar show, Kimmel fell victim to “The Lindsey Vonn Effect.” Despite being directed to avoid the topic of politics, during the broadcast, Kimmel oozed Trump-revulsion whenever he could fit it in. The next day, Kimmel delivered the Academy viewer numbers that reflected “an all-time low”.

Let’s just say that Kimmel experienced ratings on par with Hillary Clinton’s gymnastic tumble midway down a flight of stairs in India.

In other words, sort of like Lindsey found out; it’s never a good idea to publicly go mano y mano with Donald Trump, especially if you don’t want to experience mortification in front of the entire world. Just ask comedian Kathy Griffin. Kathy is a woman who attempted to behead Trump in effigy, and in the process beheaded her career in real-time.

The pattern is uncanny. Add to that list Trump other critics like the NFL and Starbucks. Also feeling “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” are Trump-hating rapper Eminem who is bleeding fans, and postmenopausal pop star Madonna whose album sales tanked after ranting on about blowing up the White House.

In politics, Trump detractors like Nancy Pelosi suddenly can’t express a coherent sentence. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) criticized the president and ended up also wearing a boot that matched Hillary’s. Even Arizona Republican “Jeff Flake(y)” got caught gossiping about Trump on an open mic. Also in the mix is the perpetually peeved Trump advisor Steve Bannon, who is no longer at Breitbart, and “reality show legend” Omarosa Manigault Newman. Soon after dissing the Trump White House in an attempt to boost ratings, the occupants of Celebrity Big Brother house evicted Omarosa.

Next up in the long list of “Lindsey Vonn Effected” Trump denigrators are the always- “inspirational” Obamas. Currently, Michelle and Barry are in late-stage negotiations with paid video streaming service, Netflix, to be paid big bucks to host an open forum where they can insult Trump in front of an audience of approximately 120-million paid customers worldwide.

One week after announcing the money discussions, Netflix fell victim to an Obama-induced “Lindsey Vonn Effect.” Seems Netflix stock, which had been steadily climbing, has been increasingly diminishing in price since subscribers heard the Obama’s were going to be paid to set up camp at Netflix. The announcement met with boycotts and subscription cancellations.

Last week Netflix stock was $331.44 a share. Then, after Netflix announced they would provide Trump-bashing Barack and his bitter Bride a soapbox to spread their signature, racism, gender identity politics, socialism and community activism the “stock dropped nearly 3% in value…down & 9.35.” In other words, “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” appears to be paying a visit to Netflix and very possibly depositing itself into Obama’s ever-swelling bank account.

In the end, the sowing and reaping occurrences are probably coincidental. However, as someone who neither skis, tours Lodi dynasty period resorts, appears on Netflix, nor hosts the Academy Awards, my best advice to those who do is to tamp down the Trump criticism lest “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” come knocking at your door.
