‘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.

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

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.

Barack the Brick-Thrower

The same Saul Alinsky-style community organizing methods that served Barack Obama well on the Southside of Chicago became indispensable tools in his quest to “fundamentally transform” the whole world from “what it is” into “the world as it should be.”

It was Barack Obama’s friend and former chief campaign strategist, David Axelrod, who confessed to NPR that community organizers in Chicago would throw bricks through the window of Democrat campaign headquarters and call a press conference to blame the opposition.  So when Obama accused Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin of colluding to steal an election, the brick that landed on the accuser’s toe was one he planted there himself.

Let’s not forget that although the International Court of Justice deems interfering in a foreign election a violation of international law, and notwithstanding the fact that U.S. regulations ban the use of tax dollars to sway foreign elections, it was brick-throwing Barack, not Donald Trump, who repeatedly defied the law on behalf of a larger global agenda.

In 2006, U.S. senator Obama traveled to Kenya on the taxpayer’s dime at a time that coincidentally corresponded with Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leaders strategizing to help Muslim-sympathizer Raila Odinga unseat incumbent President Mwai Kibaki.

Obama delivered the $1 million he had raised for the Luo tribesman’s bid for the presidency and showed up at rallies with Odinga, where he criticized Kibaki and preached “hope and change.”

After Obama’s alleged distant cousin lost by more than 200,000 votes, Kibaki appointed Odinga prime minister in a power-sharing deal, but not before Alinsky-style chaos broke out in the streets.  When it was over, the new prime minister’s sharia-supporters had killed thousands of Kenyans, destroyed 800 Christian churches, and incinerated fifty Christian believers inside an Assemblies of God.

Apparently, tossing blocks of cement through his own window for all these years has caused Obama to forgot that in 2009, the late Hugo Chávez’s friend, Honduran president Manual Zelaya, decided to ignore term limits and keep his presidency open-ended.

In response, the Honduran Supreme Court decided to have Zelaya forcibly removed by the military – a decision Barack Obama referred to as a “coup d’état.”  In an attempt to both punish and persuade the Honduran people to reinstate the deposed Zelaya, a vindictive Obama made permanent the suspension he imposed on non-humanitarian aid.

Obama’s large-scale efforts have not been limited to aiding and abetting Luo tribesmen from Africa and leftist dictators from the Americas.

In February of 2011, Obama decided to oust Moammar Gaddafi from power by instructing the State Department, headed by Hillary Clinton, to interfere in Libya’s political and military affairs.  President Obama spent a billion dollars to fund the operation, which included the U.S. military joining jihadi rebel groups to topple and ultimately kill the Libyan leader.

As a result, Barack managed to community organize a nation and “fundamentally transform” Libya from a moderate Islamic regime, that was no longer a threat to America, into a safe haven for ISIS and al-Qaeda.

Egypt saw transformational community organizing at its best.   Obama spent $200 million dollars supporting Mohammed Morsi, Islamist opponent of  the largely secular/pro-American President Hosni Mubarak.  By channeling money through the trusty Hillary Clinton-led State Department and with the help of cover organizations, Obama was able to boost to victory the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, whose leadership advocated implementing Sharia Law.  Obama’s community organizing skills were so well honed he was able to transform the Muslim Brotherhood into the Islamist wing of ACORN.

But Obama’s success was short-lived. A year after Morsi won the rigged election a military coup ensued, the president was ousted, and a pro-American Muslim-moderate named Abdel Fattah al-Sisi replaced the toppled leader.

From there, President BO moved his world as it should be operation further east to deliver a sucker punch in a dispute over Israel’s refusal to acquiesce to the community organizer’s demands concerning the Palestinian state.

Not once, but twice, in 2009, and again in 2015, the Alinsky acolyte sharpened his election-meddling skills, enlisted the US State Department, and deposited thousands of dollars into the coffers of Bibi Netanyahu opposition groups. In hopes of blocking Netanyahu from being reelected Obama even dispatched to Tel Aviv his grassroots National Field Director from two successful presidential campaigns, Jeremy ‘Anyone But Bibi’ Bird, who joined forces with like-minded Israeli activists.

Undeterred by failing to keep his nemesis from becoming Prime Minister, just prior to the 2016 Brexit referendum, America’s erstwhile egomaniac moseyed on over to Britain to issue “back of the queue” threats to Brits contemplating the benefits of exiting the European Union.

Although Obama’s efforts failed more than they succeeded, the late Saul Alinsky would still be proud.

Then, in 2017, during the French presidential election, on behalf of Macron, Obama resurrected his 2009 inauguration speech that appealed to “people’s hopes and not their fears.” Philip Gordon, Obama’s assistant secretary of state for Europe, said in an interview with The Guardian, that Emmanuel Macron “represents everything [Obama] is for and Le Pen everything he is against.”

Barack Obama’s illegal use of government money and resources for nefarious purposes inspired a group of Republican senators to petition Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, to investigate the former president’s habit of siphoning and redirecting tax money to leftist “extreme and sometimes violent political activists” that are oftentimes tied to liberal billionaire George Soros.

According to a March 2017 article in the Washington Free Beacon, the six Republican Senators wrote Tillerson a letter citing personal conversations with foreign diplomats who disclosed incidents of political interference by the Obama State Department.  Allegations included Obama’s “use of taxpayer funds to support leftist causes in countries like Macedonia, Albania, Latin America, and Africa.”

Stateside, Obama now is assisting the effort to destabilize the current president. That’s why, based on the former president’s history of illegally influencing foreign elections, it does not seem implausible that it was Barack Obama who recruited the FBI, the DOJ, and the US State Department to perform their own versions of the ACORN, Organizing for Action (OFA), and the New Black Panthers dance. At the end of the day, the former president has  track record of applying Alinsky-tactics to promote sociopolitical change, which may be why Putin and Trump were blamed for throwing bricks through windows that, under closer scrutiny, appear to be covered with Barack Obama’s fingerprints.

LOOK BEHIND THE CURTAIN: THIS Is Who Is REALLY Behind The ‘Impeachment Mania’…

Originally posted at CLASH Daily

The left is in the midst of a major temper tantrum. The reason? They cheated, connived, and manipulated a win for Hillary Clinton and she lost anyway.

It’s no wonder Clinton, the woman with the gleeful full-body-he’s-an-idiot shiver during one debate, nearly went ballistic on the night of the election after she realized she lost to a man liberals view as a clown with a canary-yellow pompadour.

So, rather than accept the results of a fair election, and rather than submit to the will of “We the people,” the “Love Trumps hate” crowd has formed a hateful resistance and is presently in the process of trying to drive Donald Trump from the White House.

How are they doing it? With the same playbook they’ve used to incite street-level chaos for 40+ years. Now, the left is hoping to undermine a free and fair election by employing Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, which, for progressives like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, is the Bible.

Alinsky’s ground rules worked very well for Barack Obama the community organizer when he applied them to incite worldwide chaos for eight years. Therefore, it stands to reason that liberals believe using similar strategies should be able to send an outsider like Trump back to his gilded Tower in New York City — permanently.

Currently, the game plan the left is testing involves trusty Rule #12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.”

Those instructions are exactly what are being inflicted on Donald Trump.

The left has TARGETED Trump for destruction. They are portraying him as a threat to America and have FROZEN his image as a cartoon-like inept, loose cannon, “pu**y-grabbing” rich, white guy, whose affection for Vladimir Putin outweighs his love for America.

What is being said about Trump is very PERSONAL. The media, Democrats and deep state Republicans have managed to either confirm prior opinions or have successfully defamed his character in the minds of many. The president is being portrayed as a liar and a threat to national security and world peace.

The hope is that via leaks and news stories that portray a frustrated White House staff the public will view Donald Trump as a man CUT OFF from a SUPPORT NETWORK, a man whose most ardent admirers are presently fed up and jumping ship.

Trump’s adversaries are hoping that the unrelenting pressure, and unsupported accusations from the media, Democrats, and deep-state Republicans will tire out the public and make those who once supported the populist president UNSYMPATHETIC and doubting their original choice.

As they threaten our representative republic by opposing the will of the people, the resistance movement is attempting to portray themselves as lovers of America who are against one man, not the INSTITUTION. The HURT they claim they are inflicting is not against the presidency, but, for the sake of freedom and America, against the singular person of Donald Trump.

These are classic Alinsky street thug, community activist tactics, these are the antics that worked for Obama on a national and global level for almost a decade. The left knows that if applied with passionate zeal, Rules for Radicals work just as well on a micro level against single individuals. The left also knows that these “rules” have the power to stir up the sort of chaos that demands someone end the madness by ushering in change most Americans would oppose under less chaotic circumstances.

In this case, the goal is impeachment.

There is a manipulative spirit at work here, and Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, should both recognize and fear it.

Moreover, even those Americans who oppose Trump’s politics and his presidency, need to acknowledge the tremendous danger our republic is in if political hooligans successfully employ the media and manipulate public officials to overturn a democratic election via violence, false accusation, and lies.
If the left succeeds — America is lost.

Trust me, disgruntled Americans should just take a break from hating Trump for one second and look behind the curtain, what they will see is the Machiavellian hands of Obama, and those like him, who, in hopes of vindicating a failed liberal legacy, are seeking the help of their demonically-inspired idol, the late Saul Alinsky.

Barack the BS Master Brags about Humility

Forgetting that it’s less than six months since the reign of illusion and delusion ended, the cover of the May 29, 2017 edition of People magazine recently featured a nostalgic story entitled “The Obamas: Their Lives Now.”

The caption below the photo read: “How Michelle and Barack are enjoying downtime with each other and their girls – and planning their surprising next moves.”

Irrespective of what People magazine attempted to represent, the goal of the glossy exploitation was to give the couple yet another excuse to denigrate Donald Trump.  That’s why the title should have read: “The Obamas: Still Belittling Everyone but Themselves.”

Authors Sandra Sobieraj Westfall and Kathy Ehrich began by portraying Michelle and Barry as regular folks spending lazy days fighting over closet space and trying to master the coffee maker control panel.

The article does mention a personal staff of 20, “many paid for by the former First Couple,” which makes one wonder why, after yachting in French Polynesia with the likes of Oprah, Forrest Gump, and The Boss, Michelle, or Barry would be futzing around with the Keurig.

In the first paragraph, the authors share a story about how, while heading home from what they call an “easy, breezy” food-industry trip to Milan, Barry, and his foreign policy adviser, Ben Rhodes, were “jolted by alerts” notifying them that Donald Trump had fired Obama-appointed FBI director James Comey.

The article stated that in response to the news, the egotistical Marxist – who fired a military general he had longstanding resentment toward and who has done more to damage the health of our representative republic – had this to say about Trump’s decision: “This is not normal.  This is not healthy for democracy.”

And who better to judge strange presidential behavior and what is detrimental to democracy than a pathological liar who spent eight years disrespecting the military and flouting the U.S. Constitution?

Westfall and Ehrich suggest that the nation is having trouble adjusting to a 45th president whom they describe as “erratic and impolitic,” which implies that Obama is neither of the two.  The article said “mission-focused” Obama yearns to settle into his downscaled life but is conflicted because of “Trump’s shadow” making it impossible for him, as an “engaged citizen,” to remain disengaged.

And so, according to the authors, Michelle and Barry distract themselves from the “chaos in Washington” they caused by doing everyday things like “plugging away at a congressional redistricting plan, spearheading educational initiatives, and writing his’n’-hers memoirs,” which will net “at least $60-million” of shareable wealth the duo will share with no one.

So, apparently, in addition to interviewing prospective terrorist ghostwriters to pen his third book, the community organizer is resolute in his efforts to eliminate political rivalry by pooling Democrat voters inside district lines that keep politicians he approves of elected and entrenched in office.

And if all this self-obsessed taking-over-the-world isn’t enough to alarm every clear-thinking American, the Obamas are also planning a Presidential Center for the South Side of Chicago that will be “more like a campus … [to train] the Michelle Robinsons and Barack Obamas of today, so they can take up the torch.”

To be authentic, the memorial should be named after the “evil genius” and Obama mentor Saul Alinsky and marketed as a place where hooligans learn to climb to the top by stirring up street-level mayhem.

The article also stated that after talking to Trump on the night of the election, the biggest BS artist on the planet told two close friends that what he concluded from the phone call is that the newly elected president is “nothing but a [BS-er]!”

With that in mind, friends stress that when he’s not kite-surfing in the British Virgin Islands, the ex-president is “[d]eeply concerned with what he’s seen.  But [he is] also optimistic and heartened that citizens aren’t just watching it happen but engaging with elected representatives at town halls.”

It appears as if Barack confuses town hall attendees with the anti-GOP resistance and the rowdy anarchists punching out Trump supporters, suppressing free speech with riots, “taking up the torch” with arson, and accusing a duly elected president of crimes no one can prove.

It all raises the question: who’s the BS artist?

The Obama article also stated that besides advancing progressive policy, Michelle and Barry are deeply involved in the lives of daughters Sasha and Malia, whose photos are allegedly on “every flat surface” of their rented Washington, D.C. mansion.

About older daughter Malia, Obama said this: “She’s still a teenager who deserves her privacy.”  This sentiment is somewhat disingenuous coming from someone who, although he denies doing so, undoubtedly spied on everyone from Bibi Netanyahu to Angela Merkel to the Supreme Court to the Vatican to the Trump transition team.

And then there’s Michelle, whom the article refers to as “riled up,” reassuring college-bound students that both “Barack and I are going to keep on … lifting you up no matter what house we live in.”

For Michelle, “lifting up” includes putting down.

The People piece said Michelle “dreamed of a long vacation where her husband could just sleep, knowing his legacy was safe with President Hillary Clinton.”  But after an overconfident Hillary cheated and connived, and then lost the election anyway, mournful Michelle, who’s been “all black” since the day she was born, told guests “I’m going all black for the next couple of years.”

Imagine Laura Bush responding to the election of our first black president by saying, “I’m going all white for the next couple of years.”

Nonetheless, by now, everyone knows that neither Tahiti kite-surfing Barack nor his bride takes rejection or correction well.  That’s why the always classy Michelle, irate over changes being made to her school lunch program, publicly accused Trump of wanting to feed school kids “crap!”

In the end, after denigrating another president and pretending to be the only mortal capable of saving America from Donald Doom, Obama ended the People magazine article exalting himself with an absurd comment about how “the longer he was in office the more humble he became.”  This demonstrates that just as a Nobel Peace Prize made a street thug believe he was a peacemaker, Barack the BS artist must also believe that bragging about humility somehow makes a narcissist humble.

OH GOD, NO: Is Obama Going To Be A Third Term President?

bho-numbers-500x280Originally posted at CLASH Daily

America is already well aware that for Hillary Clinton, who many think is “the smartest woman in the world,” it’s difficult to keep track of minor details like a philandering husband and confidential emails.

Much like Hillary, Barack Obama, the “smartest person in the room,” is also super-intelligent, which is why he may struggle with things like simple math.

Take for instance, back in 2008 when Obama informed Americans that there were seven extra states in the union, all of which he believed he had visited. He even believed he had one left to go. This may be because Obama really does possess the power to “slow the rise of the oceans” and “heal the planet,” so counting states may be too trivial an endeavor.

Either way, Obama’s latest number fumble came a couple of days after exhibiting a very shaky grasp of economics at the State of the Union address. This time, the president, who has been busy “fundamentally transforming” our “fundamentally flawed” Constitution for the last 8-years, added 10-years to America’s age.

Rather than July 4th, 1776, according to Obama, the birth of America occurred in 1766.

In addition to revising our nation’s birthday, while appearing at the University of Omaha in Omaha, Nebraska the president also rewrote a few other things when he said: “Just as all this talk about how the American economy is terrible is just not true, it’s also not true when you hear folks talking about how America’s so weak.”

Obama went on to elevate himself by ridiculing Republicans for being less than enthusiastic about his many other accomplishments such as his having made America, “far and away the most powerful nation on the planet.”

Meanwhile, on a more serious note, as Obama was busy taking credit for America being the “most powerful nation on the planet,” 10 American sailors were being humiliated by Iran on the deck of an apprehended naval ship.

Nonetheless, the president proceeded to rebuke Republicans and educate detractors about America’s strength, explaining we are who we are, “because the United States of America, for two hundred, err – 50 – years, has been working to make us the strongest.”

Huh?

Wait! In fairness, during America’s bicentennial celebration, which took place in 1976, Barack Obama was only 15-years-old, going by the name Barry Soetoro, and was still living in Indonesia. That may be why Obama believes our nation, which is approaching its 240th birthday, is really 250-years of age. Or maybe little Barry tends to use some kind of Indonesian form of common core math.

Another possibility could be that the former Constitutional law professor is cognizant of something our Founding Fathers didn’t know, either that, or he and his Choom Gang really did tour those 9 states in his Choom Wagon during the decade no one else knew existed.

And while all this misperception could be benign, if Obama continues to fumble around with numbers, there is a dilemma America could encounter in the months ahead.

The red flag went up when an acolyte in the adoring University of Omaha crowd shouted out to Obama: “Four more years!”

The president responded to the suggestion: “I can’t do that because of the Constitution” (which he’s been defying and demeaning for two terms). Then Obama followed up with: “And I can’t do that because Michelle would kill me!”

Here’s the problem: In 2009, deposed president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya sought to rewrite the Honduran constitution’s term limit provision so he could stay in office, something the Honduran constitution prohibited. At the time, newly-elected Barack Obama, who, as we can see, has the propensity to add additional numbers to everything, called for “democratic order” to be restored by supporting Zelaya’s defiance to the Honduran constitution.

Now Barack Obama, who has already proven he can’t count, is reassuring America that after eight years he plans to leave? Don’t count on it.

Just Wondering: Did America Let Barack Obama Suck Her Toes?

yuckOriginally posted at The Clash Daily

A lot of people believed Barack Obama when he predicted that his presidency would slow the rise of the oceans and begin to heal the planet. Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Are some Americans really that gullible?

After campaigning in “57 states,” thanks to those same gullible people, Obama managed to make it all the way to the White House.

Here we are six years later, and since America still hasn’t seen his college transcripts, next Obama may claim that before he went to law school he was a podiatry student.  After which he’ll recommend something absurd like leveling the playing field via toe-sucking, and voilà, those that still take him at his word will be convinced that fairness is furthered through toe-sucking.

Anyone who thinks a scenario like this is impossible, think again – it’s possible.

A similar thing happened in Lincolnton, North Carolina at a local middle-class Walmart. A black man clad in a sweater and tan pants pretended to be a podiatry student and pulled a “Barack Obama” on a 35-year-old woman minding her own business while shopping for a pair of cheap plastic shoes.

According to police, the toe enthusiast started a friendly chat with the victim and managed to “talk [her] into trying on several pair of shoes in the shoe department. At one point the suspect took the victim’s foot, put it into his mouth and sucked her toes.”

What would have happened if the man doing the sucking masqueraded as a proctologist, a gynecologist, or perhaps a breast surgeon? Would the compliant woman have found herself in a far worse situation than having to yank her moist toes out of the maw of a guy pretending to be a foot professional?

Either way, isn’t that similar to what Mr. Obama has done to America?

Barry Soetoro snuck up on us when we least expected it and struck up a friendly conversation, pretended to care about all of America’s concerns, and got a lot of easily-swayed people to believe he was something he was not.

Both the toe stalker and the president came out of nowhere, conversed with strangers, and somehow managed to sweet-talk the unsuspecting into buying and trying on for size what they proposed would look good on their prey. Then they came in for the kill.

Granted, unlike the North Carolina podiatry quack the president isn’t a “toe-sucker” per se, but based on the way he was able to dupe such a large portion of the country, if toe-sucking was part of his platform, those who voted him in would probably have thought that was a brilliant idea.

Just like the lady in Walmart, America finally noticed that Obama has been promoting himself as a political genius. Although innocent – as far as we know – of having a foot fetish, there’s no denying that America is trapped in the aisle of life with a president who continues to put his large foot in his own mouth, and has also been very successful at sucking the living daylights out of everyone else.

In this case, Barack Obama convinced America he’s a healthcare expert rather than a podiatry student. He presented an array of ideas that sounded too good to be true, but instead of questioning him, many believed him and tried on what he suggested we buy. We may not have let him grab our foot and put our toes in his mouth, but we certainly did bend all the way over and smile as he proceeded to perform a painful prostate exam on our economy, social culture, job market, and health care system.

So, the next time a story comes out about a pervert conning an unsuspecting shopper into letting him slurp on her brightly colored digits, remember that toes do not fall into mouths; the victim was present when the toe-sucker placed them there. For however long it took to get from the floor to his lips, the shoe shopper cooperated.

Then remember that that’s precisely the reason Barack Obama is in the White House. A deceitful fraud didn’t just fall from the sky and land at the desk in the Oval Office – he was put there by a disturbingly large portion of the same type of Americans who would let a fake podiatry student suck their toes.

 

Bipartisan Budget Backstabs the US Military

US Military

Originally posted at American Thinker

Just a few weeks after $4 million-vacation-man Barack Obama demonstrated his resentment toward the US military by preventing WWII veterans from visiting their memorial during the government shutdown, the president’s merry band of Democrat demons, together with a number of spineless Republicans in Congress, decided to pass a budget on the backs of retired and disabled veterans.

Clearly, soldiers injured while risking life and limb, as well as those who’ve dedicated their entire lives to defending this nation, are not on Washington DC career politicians’ list of priorities.  Considering the way the US military has been treated by the Obama administration, along with the manipulated RINOS who help facilitate the liberal contempt the president displays, one would think that the military is being purposely singled out for punishment.

To wit: in an effort to save $6 billion over ten years, the two-year budget deal drafted by Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (predictable) and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (shame on him) included COLA cuts to military pensions for retirees and disabled veterans alike.

Granted, after Barack Obama grew the national debt to $17 trillion, the budget needs to be trimmed somewhere.  However, if $6 billion is needed to cover military retiree COLA increases for 10 years, why does the government waste $7 billion destroying military equipment rather than selling it or shipping it back home from Afghanistan?

Lieutenant General Raymond Mason, Army deputy chief of staff for logistics, thinks he knows why.  According to Mason, equipment is destroyed because “We are very good at getting in, but not so good at getting out.”

Speaking of getting it in and getting it out, notwithstanding the $384,989 granted to Yale University to study the oddities of the duck penis, while soldiers with prostheses are being denied cost-of-living increases, money is also being wasted on brothels in Nevada who are being assisted via the tax code to the tune of $17.5 million.

At least there are some politicians that refused to defend the indefensible, like Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), for one. Kelly appeared visibly and publicly incensed over the military being singled out for cuts. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-ALA) agreed.  Sessions tried but failed to force a vote on an amendment that would undo the targeting of military retirees.

Sessions proposed abolishing an estimated $4.2 billion in annual spending by reining in an IRS credit that ineligible illegal immigrants find a way to benefit from by way of child tax credits.  According to Watchdog.org, in $1,000 increments, 15 percent of Additional Child Tax Credit checks are sent to illegal immigrant families with children.

Rather than using the money saved by clamping down on illegals abusing the system to fund military retirement cost-of-living increases, Democrats in the Senate unanimously voted to allow illegals to continue to bilk the system.

Together with his Democrat cohorts, rest assured the president will enthusiastically embrace the deal that Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has publicly implored him to reject if it includes cuts to military pensions. Mr. Graham should remember: the borders remain open, amnesty is in the works and, with the president’s knowledge, the WWII Memorial was barricaded.

It’s sad to say, but Barack Obama can always be counted on to err on the side of whatever benefits this nation the least.  As for his concern for the military, unless he’s firing a general or is presented with an opportunity to support a same-sex DADT couple wanting to exchange marriage vows by placing a military chaplain under duress to perform the ceremony, it’s highly unlikely Obama will express any interest in addressing the injustices directed toward the military.

Meanwhile, even though the amount of money needed to supplement cost-of-living increases for disabled and retired military is chickenfeed in comparison, President Obama chooses instead to generously bestow billions of dollars on liberal interests abroad.

Take for example the White House investing $6 billion to promote “clean energy” in Asia.  And before selling our military down the river, did Ryan and Murray even consider speaking out publicly on the outrage that is Barack Obama’s decision to resume $1.6 billion in US funding to Pakistan, a nation whose Taliban is guilty of global terrorism?

Drilling for oil is anathema here in the US, yet Barack Obama sent $2 billion to Brazil to finance offshore oil exploration.  Then there’s the $1.3 billion foreign aid package to Egypt, a country overrun by the Muslim Brotherhood, $1 billion to Syria in food and humanitarian aid, and while the American military gets no relief the offer of $6 billion to $7 billion in sanction relief  that was extended to Iran if they agree to limit their nuclear enrichment program.

According to Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Barack Obama also secretly sends untold billions to the UN in support of global warming issues, has offered $5 billion to global AIDS funding, requested $65 billion to be permanently allocated to the International Monetary Fund (IMF)/European bailout crisis kitty, and on the first day of the government shutdown, here at home Barack Obama even feathered Big Bird’s PBS nest with a half-billion dollars.

And yet, while Barack Obama chooses to send $3.5 billion over three years to a global food security initiative, in order to pass a bipartisan budget, wounded warriors and elderly veterans depending on cost-of-living increases will be asked to sacrifice again.

Meanwhile, as Obama packs for vacation in Oahu, a desperate Iraqi war veteran named Bill Shephard sold his Army Achievement medal for $3,000 on eBay in order to support his hungry family.
