Obama’s ‘Empty Chair’

5067315_GOriginally posted at American Thinker

At the 2012 Republican Convention, Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood addressed Barack Obama by speaking to an empty chair. The left was peeved, and the Obama campaign was greatly offended.

Four years later, for the 2016 State of the Union address, Obama, the Teleprompter Thespian, plans to emulate Eastwood’s stunt.  The difference is that instead of the sort of exploitation of the living the president typically indulges in, this time, as a prop, Obama will exploit the dead by leaving an empty chair in the First Lady’s skybox to represent those killed by gun violence.

Based on what he had to say to 20,000 participants during a recent Organizing for Action conference call, the empty chair is necessary because the president feels, although deceased, victims of gun violence need to be “seen and understood.”

Americans already know that, as part of his 8-year repertoire, this president never hesitates to employ manipulation to further policy initiatives. That’s why, in his last State of the Union address, Obama will stress that if one loses a life because of a gun it “means something to this country.”

So, although the vacant seat next to FLOTUS could be a safe spot to place one of her $5,000 designer handbags — it’s not.  Instead, the empty chair will “tell [victim’s] stories and honor their memory… [and] remind every single one of our representatives that it’s their responsibility to do something.”

Speaking of representatives, during this joint session, Obama probably won’t be taking any opportunities to thank the armed security for protecting and preserving the lives of every politician occupying a filled seat in the House chamber.

And while Obama’s fake show will undoubtedly be about as heartrending as his recent display of crocodile tears, one thing’s for certain, the people the president won’t refer to in his memorial are those who have died as a result of progressive ideals and goals being advanced.

Take, for instance, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry — it’s unlikely that Obama will venerate Brian’s death at the State of the Union. Brian was shot and killed in 2010 with a gun provided to Mexican drug cartels by the Obama administration’s failed Fast and Furious ATF gun-walking effort.

Is it important to Barack Obama that the death of Brian Terry be “seen and understood?”  According to the president, does Brian’s premature death “mean something to this country?”

Barack Obama will be clear about how he feels about empty chairs, but where’s his memorial to the empty boots that belonged to Navy SEAL “American Sniper” Chris Kyle and Chris’s friend Chad Littlefield, both of whom were shot in cold blood by a former Marine at a shooting range?

Despite Chris Kyle’s service to this nation, Obama never acknowledged his death, nor did he find the time to put his golf clubs down long enough to attend Kyle’s funeral.

So does the death of military heroes like Chris Kyle, SEAL Team 6, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, who died in Benghazi, and every soldier whose blood has been poured out in vain, thanks to Obama’s failed policies, ‘mean something’ to this Commander-in-Chief or not?

How about Obama including in his memorial empty chair show every victim of an illegal alien who currently is not sitting in a chair, but because of open borders and lax immigration policy, lies in a grave?

Why not mention victims like Kate Steinle, the 32-year-old woman who, while strolling on Pier 14 in San Francisco with her father Jim, was shot in the back with a stolen .40 caliber handgun, by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal felon who had been deported five times and was still wandering around loose in a sanctuary city?

Then again, based on his immigration stance, and his constant excuse-making for radical Islam, during the SOTU, it might be in the president’s best interest to avoid mentioning the violent extremists skulking around in the U.S. killing cops in the name of Allah, mowing down unarmed military, and blowing away defenseless citizens.

Moreover, in advance, it might be best for Obama not to concede to the empty chairs that will be needed to accommodate the deaths resulting from his dogged effort to impose an influx of ISIS-infiltrated refugees upon the Americans people.

In the meantime, when honoring and lamenting the losses caused by guns in Charleston, Sandy Hook, Oak Creek, Tucson, and Aurora, to avoid looking like a complete fraud, Obama best disremember the gun violence perpetrated on the victims of Nidal Hasan in the Fort Hood massacre, Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez in Chattanooga, and the fatalities visited upon the 14 people in San Bernardino by the K-1 Visa, and “Jihadi Bride,” Tashfeen Malik.

And amid the man’s constant speechifying, why hasn’t Barack Obama ever pointed to all the empty cribs?

Because this president doesn’t want the 4,000 victims a day killed in abortion clinics, with his approval, to be “seen and understood.” Nor does Planned Parenthood’s biggest defender want any of us to understand the tremendous impact the absence of 60 million human beings “means… to this country.”

That’s why, when a tearful Obama dramatically points to the empty chair in the Special People Sky Box at the State of the Union address, it’s important for Americans to remember that the uninhabited seat represents a small, select minority consisting of dead Americans whose demise has value only because their death advances the president’s agenda.

Either way, a stadium full of empty chairs is not big enough to accommodate all of Barack Obama’s empty rhetoric.

That’s why, at this year’s SOTU, murdered border patrol agents and victims killed in the name of Islam will not be esteemed. Neither will the cops shot in the head by a black man named Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, nor the innocent citizens slain by illegals currently walking the streets of America with Barack Obama’s approval.

MUSLIM KOWTOWER: Obama Mourns for a Saudi King

Based on which funerals and memorials he chooses to attend and which ones he chooses to ignore, in the past President Obama has relayed unspoken sentiments about the deceased.

Take for instance his weeping at the memorial services of children killed by gun violence versus his absence at the funerals of the children who died of Enterovirus D-68. The president attended the former because it furthered his ongoing gun-grab effort, but not the latter, because children dying from imported Third World diseases are synonymous with being a victim of Obama’s illegal immigration policy.

At a moment’s notice, Barack and Michelle were willing to fly off to South Africa for Nelson Mandela’s funeral, but because U.S. Border Agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata were killed with Obama administration “Fast and Furious”-provided guns, the president chose to skip those events.

Regrettably for Major General Harold J. Green, the highest-ranking military officer killed in combat in a half-century, on the same day the major general was laid to rest Obama chose to play his second round of golf in three days.

Unlike he did with drug-addled pop star Whitney Houston, cancer-victim ESPN announcer Stuart Scott, and the suicidal Robin Williams, the president made no statement concerning the death of decorated Navy SEAL of American Sniper fame, Chris Kyle, the Iraqi war hero who did four tours of duty and saved thousands of American lives. Obama didn’t even acknowledge the murdered Kyle’s funeral, which included a 200-mile procession from Midlothian, Texas to Austin.

The same held true with James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by renowned ISIS decapitator Jihadi John. At Foley’s memorial service, there was nary a White House representative in sight.

To his credit, Obama blubbered like a baby at the funeral of the “Godmother” of the civil rights movement, Dr. Dorothy Height, and recognized the death of the first Cherokee Nation female chief Wilma Mankiller.

After the passing of fantasy/science fiction author Ray Bradbury, pop star/disco singer Donna Summer, Apple founder Steve Jobs, and American Bandstand/New Year’s Eve icon Dick Clark, Obama publicly extended his condolences.

And just as he did with Trayvon Martin, Obama issued a statement concerning the death of Ferguson, Missouri thug Michael Brown. Concerned about gun violence, the president dispatched Michelle to Chicago for the funeral of murdered teen Hadiya Pendleton.

On the other hand, the president chose to sit out the funeral of U.S. ally and good friend to former president Ronald Reagan, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Citing volcanic ash as a deterrent, the president chose to golf on the day of Polish president Lech Kaczynski’s 2010 funeral.

Speaking of Poland, on the way home from India Obama will not be attending the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp, the largest mass murder site in human history.

However, six million murdered Jews aside, while returning from India, Obama decided to make a $267,787 four-hour stopover in Saudi Arabia to pay his respects to the late King Abdullah and to meet the newly crowned Saudi monarch King Salman. The president touched down in Riyadh hauling a huge American delegation that included Condoleezza Rice and John McCain (R-AZ).

Barack Obama didn’t feel inclined to pay his respects to NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, whose funeral services were both held close to New York City’s Times Square. But maybe, after dining at the Saudi Erga Palace, he did some secret sightseeing in Deera “Chop-Chop Square,” the place where decapitations routinely take place as a form of entertainment and where, after losing their heads, some of the corpses are then crucified.

Disguised as diplomacy, Barack Obama, the man who ignored the deaths of America’s true allies, chose to spend American tax dollars to fund his transparently selective funeral attendance. And he did it in the largest Arab nation that controls most of the world’s oil for a dead King whose legacy has been the persecution of women, imprisonment or death for political dissidents, the flogging of outspoken bloggers, chopping off the limbs of thieves, and beheading people.

Meanwhile, Muslim kowtower Obama couldn’t make it to the Paris protest renouncing terrorism attended by 44 other world leaders, and asked a White House official to promise on his behalf that Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu will “pay a price” for agreeing to come to America to address Congress on the threat of a nuclear Iran.

Meanwhile, feigning funerary obligations, again Obama exposes his blatant favoritism with yet another non-verbal statement. But this time, he’s not expressing sympathy for dead thugs or deceased celebrities, but a dead Saudi Arabian king and a nation rumored to be a “cash machine” for worldwide terrorism.

Forget Jesus, Let’s Make Philip Seymour Hoffman a Hero

It’s always sad when human beings destroy themselves as a result of poor decisions, selfishness, and an inability to resist temptation.

It doesn’t make the tragedy any more disturbing if the person is a rich, famous actor than if he or she were a kid in middle America who stupidly got mixed up with the wrong crowd and ended up becoming a statistic.

It’s all disturbing.

However, what is also tragic is the reaction to the death of a famous person by a nation who refuses to acknowledge real tragedy like 3,700 aborted babies a day.

Or to discuss the truth behind the four Americans left to die in a terrorist attack in Benghazi. Or to salute every flag-covered coffin unloaded from military cargo planes. Or remember murdered heroes like Border Agent Brian Terry, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata, and US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

America has morphed into a culture where mentioning the name of Jesus Christ, a man who willingly allowed His hands and feet to be nailed to a cross so that fallen humanity might live, is fast becoming an almost criminal offense.

images Contrast society’s disdain for Jesus with its love of Hollywood icons. Actors such as Cory Monteith, who starred in Glee, or Heath Ledger, who played a gay cowboy, or Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Truman Capote, were all zipped into a black body bag and slid into a coroner’s hearse after overdosing on drugs.

And despite the pitiful, self-centered way they lived and died,  all three are objects of worship, given  god-like status

Anti-gun while pro-shooting up, Philip Seymour Hoffman is no hero – he was clearly a tortured soul. Talented though he was, Hoffman’s death has proven that he was both weak and reckless, neither of which are  admirable character traits.

Robert Downey Jr.

Relapsing after being 23 years sober, Philip Seymour Hoffman left for his small children the knowledge that their Dad was found dead on the floor of his bathroom in a posh West Village apartment. Police say that Hoffman’s body laid there for hours, clad only in shorts and a t-shirt, surrounded by syringes and bags of heroin, with a needle still stuck in his arm.

If America is that desperate to make a hero out of an Hollywood actor, how about Robert Downey Jr.? Downey kicked drugs, cleaned up his life, and so far has never relapsed. Considering he was raised in Hollywood, that’s heroic.

Pastor Saeed Abedini

Moreover, if America is searching for a real hero, they should look to father and husband Pastor Saeed Abedini.

Abedini has been unlawfully incarcerated in an Iranian jail since 2012.

Abedini stands a good chance of being executed if he continues to refuse to deny his faith in Jesus.

And while the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman is sad, what’s sadder still is a society where such a person meets a self-inflicted end, yet somehow becomes a romanticized object of glorification.

Meanwhile true heroes, including the one true God, are ignored, despised, and rejected.

The Segregated SOTU Sympathy Skybox

pendleton-obama-2The most infuriating thing about the ‘Fat Tuesday’ State of the Union address was not the fact that bespectacled Bob Menendez (D-NJ), who is under investigation for having sex with underage prostitutes, was milling around in the crowd as if nothing is going on, or having to tolerate seeing elected officials act like hormonal teenagers grabbing at the President like he was Justin Bieber working a velvet rope line.

It wasn’t the president’s predictable left-wing drivel, or seeing a comatose Ruth Bader Ginsburg being propped up on either side by John Paul Stevens and Anthony Kennedy.

The most unnerving part of the event took place in the SOTU Sympathy Sky Box. As first lady Michelle got a standing ovation for God knows what, it was apparent that the gallery was packed with a diverse group of people there only because their stories supported the president’s anti-gun, pro-illegal immigrant, pro-woman, green ribbon-wearing, big-spending agenda.
