Barack Obama and the
Mandate Of Heaven

American Thinker, by J. R. Dunn

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 10/4/2012 4:07:46 AM

Forget the polls, forget the focus groups, forget the media. What is occurring in the campaign of 2012 is simplicity itself: Barack Obama has lost the mandate of heaven. We persist in the illusion (even conservatives, who should be immune to this kind of thinking) that politics is somehow a form of "rational" activity, open to "scientific" understanding and manipulation. The entire apparatus of political consultancy, polling, and analysis is based on this premise.

A lot of high-fallutin' words here. I've got a better idea: read what the papers write, and listen to the network news. Then believe the opposite.

Actually, Obama does have a memorable line which ranks up there with the all time memorable lines..."You didn't build that."

Regarding future debates, I think one of 2 things will occur.
.... Obama will issue instructions that he will NOT debate Mitt again and that his handlers had better come us with something to make that non-debate happen. He will remind 'them' that he was told he would not have to do anything more than look presidential, read the teleprompter and play golf.
.... If the debate IS held, Obama will try to accuse Mitt of racism. The race card put the president in office. He has failed in the presidency. Now, the race card is all he has left.

I hope Mitt is ready for being accused of basing all his future plans on a 'white only' basis.

I think that #8 is probably right. This guy cannot stand a situation where he is not the focus of the room. He must be adored and catered to by all involved. His thin skin will have to eventually come out and he will have a total meltdown.

This is one of the best articles I have read on the subject. This is wha the writer is talking about.. Ozymandias
by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Obama is in a dangerous (yeah) predicament. He must be the sggressor in the next two debates, but he must also still look "cool" and "reserved".

He is not capable of putting on the performance Mitt did last night. He cannot disagree without rancor. My prediction, he will come out hard, Mitt will respond hard and O will start to ramble aimlessly and come across not only as unintelligable but crass and simply mean. His thin skin and complete ignorance of criticism almost guarantees this.

The next moderator is going to go after Mitt like a starving tick on the worlds last hound dog. I expect downright rude cut offs, very strict clock watching (for Mitt, not Obama) and for any sequence in which Mitt looks "presidential" to be immediately cut off and the subject changed.

I doubt Mitt will allow it, his challenge is to be as rude as possible and still look "cool" and "reserved". Thats a very tough act to pull off. Make no mistake, in the next debate the deck will be stacked and there will be two opponents gunning for Romney, Obama and the leftwing "moderator". I hope Mitt is up to the challenge.

You have to realize that this is Obama's first REAL contest. He has had previous political positions essentially handed to him without much effort until 2008, and during the last election, the media covered up his radical past so well that people thought he was a moderate black guy who was going to heal the racial divide.

Four years of arrogant and authoritarian rule has made his extreme left ideology more obvious to everyone. He does not have anonymity nor as monopolistic a media to shield him from being exposed for the often unthinking ideologue that he truly is.

But the damage of an Obama presidency to the political stability of the world especially in an increasingly unstable Middle East and North Africa, has already been done and is too late for America to put that evil genie back in the bottle.

You are right #3, "You didn't build that" may have been the very beginning of his demise.

Last night was an "answer" to many prayers. There are countless Christians fasting and praying for God's will to be done in and through US.

Obama is a pompous person who thinks he can do anything, never to be held accountable and now finding out that without a teleprompter, he is an empty suit, unable to stand tall and impressive. Whoever inputs that teleprompter is the "brain" behind this man!

Mitt Romney displayed a man with confidence and trust in God and the American people, that together, we can turn this country around.

Romney is not seeking power. He wants to use his expertise given to him by Almighty God, to save thi country from the aftermath of Obama's rule and reign with secretive means with his czars and anyone who honors him.

Thank God for His intervention. Continue to pray for His will to be done here on earth just as it is in Heaven, where Peace/Love/Joy fill the atmosphere!

Thank You Jesus for coming to set the captives free! Satan must flee when we seek His presence!

May this country be grateful for this man (Romney) who "chooses" to stand up for the gigantic chore of "cleaning" the government that has sought to control US, not bringing US together as our forefathers foresaw their responsibility.

I hope that 0bama does try to play the race card in the next debate. It will be the clearest sign possible of the desperation in the WH. Romney will be ready for it. Hopefully he will say something Reaganesque like, "Is that all you've got?".

While entitled, oh so entitled, #2, that isn't helpful. I'm probably the most anti-cult parishioner of this here Mother Church, and I see Mr. Romney as part of the solution.

While I'm at it, I might as well get flame-proofed on immigrants. Perhaps the family-centric, religious Mexicans we've so decried will help us get rid of all the focus on gay marriage when they vote on the matter. Gays have ALWAYS BEEN free to be together any way they choose. But that's a subject for another debate.

I think the point of the article is well taken, an election is NOT a rational process. People often choose a candidate because they like him. Or because their friends like him. Or that he is a sharp dresser. Or because he is good looking. Or that he had an appearance on Oprah or Letterman. Or because their favorite TV star endorses him. Or because they think he is a winner.

Real events can erode some of those good perceptions. No doubt that many people that support BO are still disappointed in his presidency. But the support remains.

Until, for some, sometimes insignificant reason, their opinion shifts. And they no longer like him enough to support him. And for some strange reason, it can happen like a wave, with many people coming to the same recognition simultaneously.

BO on a debate stage, naked without his media shield, was seen to be incapable of standing up to Mitt Romney. His demeanor was uncomfortable and angry. He doesn't seem worthy of respect or support. He was pitiable but not electable. Will that be the beginning of the wave? Perhaps?

From here, there are two alternatives: 1. the fake president decides he'd rather spend his days golfing in Hawaii and lets Romney win by default, and 2. in collusion with the MSM, the sneakiest, most insidious October Surprise is unleashed, either as a bomb from above or as a million invisible snakes in the grass, and the nation stands on the brink, in effect, of a coup d'etat. I'm hoping for alternative 1.

Alternative 3, that the Democrats will conduct an honest campaign from here to November 6 - LOL!!!

The next debate (October 16th) on foreign and domestic policy, employs a “Town Meeting” format. Since Obama, his advisors and the LSM have all shown that they are more than willing to lie and cheat to retain power, the risk that the Dems and/or the Moderator (CNN’s Candy Crowley) will try to stack the audience with liberal ideologues or screen the questions in advance to favor Obama; Romney must be prepared to face a stacked deck.

However, I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if Obama tries to avoid the debate. A likely scenario would be to have a seal team or squad of drones attack the “secret base” of the al Qaeda group that attacked our Consulate in Benghazi. The attack will occur within the last 24 hours before the scheduled debate and Obama will bow out to handle the crisis. Although it’s been reported that US intelligence had identified and begun tracking some of the terrorists within 24 hours of the attack, Obama will announce that, “we just found out where they were located and had to act fast.” You know, just like the attack on bin Laden that he postponed at least 3 times.

I had a sense last night that before and during the debate Obama was supported by good wishes and thought by his supporters.

Mitt Romney was supported by a covenant of prayer all across this great land of ours.

#13, all Mitt has to do is play Gingrich. His trashing of the Lame Stream Media played very well in America. No one loves the media, in fact most hate the media and any politician that takes them down a few noches is golden!...He just has to do it nicely.

I'm sorry, did I just hear you helping the President with his answer? Why don't you help me, don't you believe in sharing the wealth?

Really, you cut me off mid sentence and moved to another subject! You gave President Obama a pass and let him go over for at least 3 minutes on a previous question, is that fair? I think not, I demand time to rebut the prior discussion where you cut me off.

And So on.

Make the MSM goon like a terrorist, pounce on them for their obvious bias and unfairness...believe me the MSM is in the tank for Obie and Mitt can use that against both of them!

I'm going to go with the Chicoms on the validity of this.

Way back in the 190s, I lived in Southeast Asia. A series of events in Indonesia were so strange and unfortunate that all the Indonesians knew something was really wrong even though the president was still in power. The series went like this:

*A Filipino engineer fell out of an airplane after exposing a big gold mine investment as fake. Eerie.

*Haze like nothing ever seen in Asia came as the result of forest fires in Sumatra. Nobody could breathe or see. The smoke and fire were a symbol of something.

*The currency devalued, the final domino in a chain of currency devaluations all through the region. Really serious.

*The central bank building burned.

*Suharto insisted he would run for office one last time. Everyone thought this was insane, he was too old.

*The currency REALLY devalued, terrifying the public. Banks collapsed, billboards through the capital went blank, radios in the countryside went silent, all was eerie.

*The IMF rolled in and fuel subsidies ended. Cooking oil prices shot through the roof. People were enraged.

*Students began protesting. Three students were shot at Trisakti University. Bells were ringing all over the place, this had never happened before.

*Suharto went to Egypt for a nonaligned conference meeting.

*The city exploded into riots and was on fire by the time Suharto came back. Chinatown burned. The military shot up skyscraper windows.

*Within a week or two, Suharto was out. It all felt like the mandate of heaven had left him.

Obama never had a 'mandate of heaven'. It was conferred on him by his worshippers. Sadly, Proverbs 6:16-19 seems to be the realm in which he prefers to operate. His core beliefs and remorseless lying separate him from God's true blessings. Neither skin color nor political 'savvy' is a substitute for integrity or godly character.

#17, #30 and #31, I join you in asking God to give us leaders who can/will take steps to correct our course. I was not sure of Romney. But, a man who practices the higher moral tenets of his faith and lives with integrity is better than one who does not. Both the deceived and the deceiver must answer to God.

(1) Ask God to help the 'askers', 'seekers' and 'knockers' to find the truths hidden in B/O's past. The secret things belong to God who knows where everything is on earth. We need irrefutable, indisputable truth (whatever it is) before Election Day. (2) Pray that God will shatter the media's conspiracy of silence. (3) And that God will open the eyes of the American people. We must know where this nation is headed under B/O or Romney to be fully responsible for the consequences of our vote.

God loves America and will help us to keep the rights He gave us. Keep praying and thanking God. Don't lose heart. We serve a God who hears and answers prayers! :-)

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Apart from me, there is only one other non-Democrat I know of in my immediate D.C. neighborhood. Let´s call him John Doe, because he´s petrified that he´ll be the next target of this extra-constitutional gang from Chicago and wouldn´t want to see his name made public. I hadn´t seen him around for a while, but yesterday afternoon there was a knock on the back door. No one ever uses it so I figured it was the gas meter reader, but no, it was John who scurried in, using the cover of the large fig tree branches out of fear he might

Barack Obama´s Constant State
of Cognitive Dissonance

Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That´s why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it´s impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.

My relationship with Joe evokes the Jane Austen line, "For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?" Joe is an 82-year-old black man, a very successful retired computer engineer. He owns homes in the most affluent areas of this city, and until recently he tooled around the southeastern U.S. in his Cessna. Joe is a forceful man who has assumed the role of a leader among our common acquaintance. Joe is obsessed with white racism, and because he is black, people acquiesce to him in ways they would not for

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.The theory was that Farrow, a Rhodes scholar who graduated college when he was 15 and went on to score degrees from Yale and Oxford, would bring his 245,000 Twitter followers with him to television

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
