2009-04-19 11:58 --OBAMA'S MORAL VICTORY OVER BIN LADIN FOR REDEEMING NATION FROM TORTURE
The release of Bush's "Torture Memos" was a clear moral victory for the Obama administration in the War on Islamic Terror. For the best defense in fighting Al Qaida is not by gathering actionable intelligence by questionable/unlawful/immoral/criminal means-as that makes us no better than mass murdering terrorists; but by restoring America's values, integrity, good name and image in the world; by regaining the moral high ground, being what this country should ideally be, doing things righteously and by the book.
Fear not my friends, 9/11s are now obsolete, a thing of our dark, sinful, ugly past belonging to the age of Dick Cheney and George W. Bush. With the world and Arab street in religious adoration of Barack Hussein Obama (the new conscience of America) for redeeming us of Gitmo, Abu Ghraib and the worse than 9/11 horrors of waterboarding terrorists, Bin Ladin dares not attack us again lest he lose face with Islam and and destroy his holy brand.

2009-04-17 10:42:32.000 --- BARACK OBAMA'S STRASBOURG SPEECH AND THE OMINOUS MEANING OF HIS TELEPROMPTER BLUNDER -
At his town hall meeting in Strasbourg, France on April 3rd Barack Obama suffered an embarrassing moment similar, I believe, in its significance to the unprecedented bungling of his oath of office on Inauguration Day. For midway through his speech Obama's teleprompter suddenly froze causing him to pause until it got rolling again. What was fascinating was the word that somehow failed to appear on the screen at that moment; a word that he couldn't recall with his poor, befuddled unaided brain; the most important word in his political lexicon that sums up his bankrupt leftist ideology and world view; the principle of principles that motivates all he does and politically lives for; the fatally flawed vision driving him and our economy to catastrophic ruin. This is what happened that day play by play:
After assuring his French audience that "transformational change is possible (meaning government perfecting society)," Obama then cites the reasons why it’s possible, saying: "First, because, for all our differences, there are certain values that bind us together and reveal our common humanity: the universal longing to live a life free from fear and free from want, a life marked by dignity and respect and simple justice." Stop right there! You will notice what he didn't say. You will notice that individual liberty, the core principle of the Founders and Framers, was missing replaced by (material) safety and security as the "universal longing" of mankind-the conditions promised by all despots, tyrants and totalitarian regimes feeding on human weakness, insecurity and fear. Obama then continues: "Our two republics (America and France) were founded in service of these ideals. In America it is written into our founding documents as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In France, liberte -- "
Here is where his teleprompter froze and left him in the lurch. After citing with no difficulty our founding ideals of "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness (of free, self-governing men providing safety, security and happiness for themselves)" he then cites the ideals of the French Revolution: “liberty, equality, fraternity,“ but is tripped up on the all important word "equality;" the ideal that in reality divided the French Revolution from the American; the ideal that turned revolutionary France, Russia, China, Cuba, Cambodia, Vietnam, Iraq and North Korea into orgies of terror and blood where millions died so that the living could be free of "want and fear."
That Obama's malfunctioning teleprompter should confound him on this very word and no other is, I believe, an unmistakable sign of where his revolution is going: that his quest for equality is his stumbling block and will be his undoing and downfall (see note 1); it's a sign prefiguring the fate of his "New Foundation:" his revolution to collectivize our insecurities and fears and replace individual liberty, the great foundational principle of our republic, with egalitarian spread the wealth, tax and spend leveling socialism-the directing idea of FDR's failed New Deal and LBJ's disastrous War on Poverty. Obama's reckless dream of "a more perfect Union" free of "want and fear"-of entitlements galore in a materially safe and secure America regardless of the costs-is the blind, fatalistic force that is driving his presidency into the abyss and the radical Left to its political and cultural apocalypse. Hear Obama's blunder for yourself: Listening in Strasbourg, France | The White House
Keep in mind the time and place when Obama's blunder was made. It was on April 3rd the 92nd anniversary of Vladimir Lenin's return from exile to Russia, the beginning of the Russian socialist revolution which crashed and burned seven decades later; and the place was France the one great mother of all egalitarian revolutions, another disaster with a shorter life span. Egalitarianism rules Obama's fate like an evil star; he's struck deaf, dumb and blind by this ruinous idea and thinks that it makes him wiser than King Solomon and all the liberty loving free market Founders combined. This fatally flawed man driven as he is by hubris, narcissism, arrogance, and ignorance bears the marks and signs of becoming one of the most tragic figures in American presidential history.
1. According to word count the speech consisted of 3350 words. Obama flawlessly went through 2878 words stopping at the word "liberty" when his teleprompter temporarily jammed and wouldn't give him the word "equality." I don't believe this happened by chance any more than the bungling of his presidential oath on the word "faithfully." The man who wants to bring fundamental and foundational change to America sees the Constitution as a badly flawed document created for the protection of individual rights from government coercion-the right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, freedom of assembly, speech, religion, the press, etc.,-but saying nothing about positive rights or entitlements: the right to a job, a home, healthcare, education and salvation from the imaginary menace of global warming. As the Constitution, in Obama’s view, is a badly flawed and deficient document created by rich, slave-owning white men he can’t be trusted to faithfully defend it as it is abhorrent to his secular progressive socialistic creed and its domestic ideal of an all caring cradle to grave utopian security state-that started in France with its failed revolution.

2009-04-09 07:43:40.000 --TURKEY, OBAMA AND THE WORSENING CONFLICT WITH ISLAM, OR THE RE-CARTERIZATION OF US FOREIGN POLICY
No sooner did Obama in Turkey prostrate himself before the Islamic world than a young idealistic Turkish-born Canadian smitten by the President stole a single engine plane from a flight training school in Thunder Bay, Canada and flew it to the U.S. landing in Ellsinore, Missouri hoping to enjoy the blessings of Obama's progressive pro-Islam America (see ). Expect a stampede of Turkish Canadians and Moslems to follow. Ironically, as Obama boldly leads America out of the evil dark age of George W. Bush, with its inordinate fear of Islamic terror and unnecessary preëmptive wars, the town of Ellsinore, where the young Turk landed, is located in Carter County-that's Carter as in Jimmy the Weak (see note 1) who helped the US overcome its inordinate fear of Communism and gave control of Iran to Khomeini and the Theofascist genocidal mullahs and Sharia thugs.
Kidding aside, who is so blind as to deny that Obama's pathetic performance in Turkey was an ominous sign that 21st century America is being radically re-Carterized? Keep in mind that Obama was elected president on November 4, 2008, the 29th anniversary of the first act of war by modern radical Islam against the United States: the agonizing Iran Hostage Crisis when America was humiliated for the last 444 days of Carter's miserably weak presidency (the precursor of 9/11 and 3000 dead). The re-Carterization of American foreign policy is underway which means a triumphalist emboldening of our Islamic enemies, humiliation for our country and turmoil throughout the Middle East and world (see note 2).
April 6, 2009, the day Obama obsequiously declared that America wasn't at war with Islam (when we are in an escalating world conflict with this political religion) was the 92nd anniversary of Wilson's declaration of war on imperial Germany and the entry of America into World War I (see note 3). That day also marked the 13th anniversary of the start of the terrible Rwandan Genocide where 900,000 men, women and children died. It would be hard to find two worse signs of the horrors and tragedies likely to come from the Obama doctrine of weakness, appeasement and bowing to Moslem kings. And lastly, April 6th was the 76th day of Obama's presidency. The number 76 is a numerical sign indicative of the 76th year of the 20th century, the year Jimmy Carter won the presidency.
1. Carter County, Missouri (one of 114 counties) is a dot on the map with a population of just under 6000 (see). A few miles here a few there and the stolen plane would have landed in another county. It is inconceivable to me that the "coincidence" of this airplane theft by a Canadian Turk ending in Carter County on the day of Jimmy Earl Obama's speech in Ankara was a random, unguided, chance accident devoid of meaning for the present and future. Will Obama turn Turkey into the next Iran, or some other country in the region? Most probably, unless Obama grows balls and brains and changes course.
2. Turkey is headed by the pro-Islamist government of Prime Minister Recep Erdogan (see) who is showing increasing hostility toward its ally Israel over the Palestinian issue. With Obama in power will we see a confrontation between Israel and Turkey?
3. The Axis powers headed by Imperial Germany included the Ottoman Turks who lost their Islamic empire due to being on the losing side of the war.

2009-04-09 06:47:42.000 --THE APOCALYPSE OF THE AMERICAN LEFT
Why has socialism-the equating of justice with material equality-failed so badly whenever and wherever it's been tried? Because the inequality of individuals is the eternal law of nature and the will of Almighty God. Because socialism is at war with the individual and his rights, at war with natural inequality, at war with freedom, at war with nature and nature's God.
The collapse of Soviet Russia was the great sign: the ideology of socialism is bankrupt and in its end times. In our fatally flawed President, a man who has learned ZERO from the atrocities and crimes of the past, from socialism's failures and the murder of millions, from Greece and the collapse of the social welfare state in Europe one sees the apocalypse of the American Left their end and demise and the reawakening of liberty: the spirit of virtue, justice, patriotism and free enterprise. Of individuals pursuing their destinies in peace and advancing the progress of this nation and mankind. But national renewal may come at the terrible price of social and economic turmoil and strife, war and upheaval abroad-with the enemies of freedom advancing on all sides and emboldened to strike, striking to wake us up as happened at Pearl Harbor, in Washington DC and downtown New York when the Pentagon was hit and the Twin Towers were no more. Great tribulation is coming my friends, the perfect storm of economic crisis and war. But never lose heart, never give up, never despair; this nation shall prevail and go on to thrive like never before.
