Obama´s Fall from Grace
American Thinker, by J.R. Dunn

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/17/2013 6:31:55 AM

Reportage of last week´s Nelson Mandela funeral reveals clearly enough that President Obama has reached the point in his tenure where everything ceases to go right -- when even the most serious and determined efforts deteriorate into a hash, or worse, a joke. This happens to everyone in public life eventually, politicians above all. The original attraction wears thin, flaws appear more prominently, styles and opinions change. There is little the individual can do to avoid this.(snip)The Mandela funeral shows that Obama is deep into this phase of his career, and has landed on his head.

I´ll believe a fall from grace when I see it. Once again, its obvious the advantage the Repubs could have if they pressed the Obamacare issue and hammered it home. But they won´t. Heck, they just agreed to fund it for two years and fast-track taxes.

It would be nice if we had an opposition party that would help along a fall from grace.

I would be looking forward to Obama´s "fall from grace" except for one very important thing. That fall from grace is going to be accompanied by a LOT of pain and suffering for people throughout the world as China goes to war with its neighbors and Iran uses its nuclear bomb. That is not even discussing the lesser pain caused by the destruction of America´s health care system.

I, for one, don´t expect the Marxist mafia media, the over educated eggheads in academia, and the lofos to be abandoning their MESSiah anytime soon. They´ll be busy covering up for, and throwing the race card around ceaselessly for their precious boy until he leaves office. Expect any and all critics of the current WH resident will be continually hounded and smeared as racists until he leaves office. It´s the only way the current powers that be, shut the good folks up.

Read the Declaration of Independence - it spoke to our current circumstances -

That whenever any for m of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the RIGHT of the PEOPLE to alter or to abolish it and to institute new from, as to them shall seem most likely to effect the Safety and Happiness.

Hmmmm! Seems like the Puritans and their friends had much more courage than the dissidents in this country.

Until we get an opposition party that truly opposes the status quo - we are going to continue to play into the hands of the communists who are controlling the destiny of America.

As David Horwitz says, it is time to call them what they are - communists and they are in both parties.

I agree with #4. Obama’s collapse is not going to be one of those controlled demolitions where well-placed charges bring down massive buildings without damaging nearby structures. It is going to be a mess. A lot of innocent Americans are going to suffer from Obama’s incompetence and the media’s tolerance of his repeated mistakes. Those American’s only sin was watching too much television . They are going to pay dearly for it.

I love Dunn. He can always be relied upon to let it fly:

When the crises come -- the inevitable one involving packed ERs, shuttered hospitals, and hundreds or thousands of deaths beginning this January, and the still vague but foreboding possibilities when war season opens next Spring -- we´ll know where not to turn, and what not to expect. It´s a simple and undeniable truth: you don´t turn to clowns in an emergency.

Too many voters "turned to clowns" when they voted to elect him the first time, when there was no emergency. Now, Obama has created several emergencies:

Millions losing their health care and doctors
Death Panels
90 million jobs gone
National debt thru the roof
More people on welfare than ever in US history
Constitutional overreach
Selective law enforcement
NSA spying
IRS voter intimidation and fraud
Theft of patents by our gov´t
Iran nuking up

To quote the cancer patient whose life-saving policy and doctors was stolen from him, "Why is our government doing this to us?"

This is a question that needs answering.

Blacks are realizing that Zerobama is white, not black. The only thing he has in common with black people is his skin color, sort of. He´s really too light skinned to be considered black by most blacks.

He snookered them and they fell for it. He was raised by whites in white environments and for all practical purposes, he is white, to say nothing of the FACT that he is at least half white physically. We can´t know for sure since no one is absolutely certain who his father even is!

He uses the black population for their votes. He´s done nothing for them but talk. It´s now twice as hard for a black person to get a job as it was when Zero took office.

Hey, wake up, he´s white, not black.

We still have three years for him to complete this fall from grace. And regardless of how bad things are in the country with a collapsing healthcare system, enemies at the gates, etc. The Obamas and his inner circle (Jarrett) will fall from grace and have a very soft landing - probably make the Clintons look like pikers when the Obamas start the next stage of their careers and money grubbing.

It´s an enlightening article which has the persona of a fraud that has gelled into a complete clueless clown.
The problem I have if a collapse occurs is all of Washington and almost an entire government are all thieves, power mongers, tax cheats, deal making communist cabal of nitwits.
An entire government purging is in order and the slow motion of elections might not be the solution when the Spring of War happens next year.
Where do we go from here to right or stop this destruction. It may turn out the buffoon at the top is the least of our worries.

I can´t remember which Russian it was - they all condemn us - who said that America would be torn down from the inside. Whether outsiders would do it to us or we would do it to ourselves remained to be seen. And we see it now.

The only thing to save us from a further three years of internal destruction is the tearing down of the regime from the inside, beginning with the man who calls himself Obama.

He is physically and mentally unstable and as such supremely susceptible to ridicule and disrespect. The fact that he is setting himself up for it is just sweetener.

We need to keep the pressure on. (It would be nice if the Republicans could see this and participate.) Once he crumbles, the cabal in the WH will disintegrate and scatter like cockroaches.

It´s a lovely mental image.

Mandela funeral? Let´s talk about the Mandela funeral.

Mandela was reported to have died on December 5. His memorial was on December 10. How is it possible for all these heads of state, celebrities, politicians, and all of their entourages, security people, hair stylists, photographers, and other assorted hangers-on to all mobilize simultaneously in LESS THAN A WEEK to fly to the bottom of nowhere (Johannesburg)? The obvious answer is that it´s not. It´s not possible. All this took months to book and plan and organize. Heck, the seating chart probably took a month. Which lends credence to the reports that Mandela died in June, and was kept technically alive on machines while this was all organized. A big show. A phony signer at a phony memorial. The only question is whether everyone knew beforehand the date they would pull the plug, or whether it was a surprise party. Sort of a flash memorial, with everyone just waiting for the signal to start. Ghoulish when you ponder it a bit.

The reason that Republicans aren´t using any of the Obozo problems to hammer him with is simple. As mentioned a few days in an article, the "establishment" Republicans are simply more interested in keeping the power positions that they occupy and fear of losing them if the country truly turns to a real, bona fide conservative bent. That´s why they are more interested in fighting conservatives than they are in fighting Obozo.

Hoisting him up on their shoulders, the left-wing media, JournOlisters and all the rest, have been responsible, culpable, guilty of foisting him and his fellow travelers on our necks.

They´re all inextricably linked with him, equally responsible... perhaps more so, since they did not do "due diligence".

He proclaimed that he would "fundamentally transform" our Republic, and indeed he has, taking a wrecking ball to it, causing dislocation and suffering ALL OF IT unnecessary. Unnecessary UNLESS this was the intention all along.

This means that he has plotted evil, and carried it out.

CNN reporter Jeanne Moos sparked outrage in New Zealand and Australia for her coverage of the visit of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge to New Zealand, for mocking the dress and customs of the Maori people who greeted the royals. It is almost inconceivable that a CNN reporter would mock the traditions of Native Americans, blacks, or other domestic minorities (and that editors would air such a report), but take them outside of their zone of PC awareness, and the inherent attitudes disguised at home come shining through.

It’s going to be an unsettling day for the Ruling Class in Washington, DC. One of the little tricks that keeps the Beltway media-special interest alliance prosperously spinning along has been exposed to the light of day by Washington Post blogger Eric Wemple. In a long piece devoted to Politico’s Mike Allen, Wemple chronicles the confluence of advertising and journalism via what a practice called “native advertising,” inserting material that looks like it could be an ordinary item written by a journalist, but which actually is paid advertising.

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by
