Who Plays POTUS on Fox's '24' Touts He's 'a Big Fan' of 'Smart' Obama. William Devane
(IMDb page), who plays "President James Heller" on Fox's prime time 24: Live Another Day,
told USA Today that "obviously I'm a big fan of Obama, as a guy who's smart and articulate" and, in
his acting, "I say to myself, 'what has got to be going on in the private side of this guy's brain' —
the pressure, the racism that is thrown out — and he handles it with such dignity.'"
Obama wins place on
Lakers' roster from Kobe Bryant. Basketball star Kobe Bryant says President Barack Obama's hoops game is good
enough to get him on the Lakers' roster. "Yes, he could actually," Bryant told Dan Patrick, a radio DJ.
"I'm not dissing the current roster that we have," Bryan said March 19. "It is more a sign of respect for
the skill that the president possesses," he explained. Bryant's sincerity or his professional judgement, however,
may be incomplete. Last April, Obama played a picked game, but only made 2 of 22 shots, much to the
embarrassment of everyone involved.
Biden jokes that he would nominate Obama for 'sainthood'. Vice President Joe Biden
in a speech Friday [3/21/2014] joked that he should have nominated President Obama for "sainthood"
after seeing his patience during the rocky rollout of the health law's new insurance exchanges.
The Editor says...
Mr. Biden apparently mistakes incompetence and narcissistic detachment for patience.
Barbara Walters on Obama:
'We Thought He Was Going To Be The Next Messiah'. Yes, she really said it. On CNN's Piers Morgan Live Tuesday [12/17/2013], in a brief
discussion about President Obama, Barbara Walters actually said, "We thought that he was going to be — I shouldn't say this at Christmastime,
but — the next messiah"[.]
Barbara Walters: We Thought Obama Was 'the Next
Messiah'. Barbara Walters said the difficulties engulfing President Barack Obama are a reflection of the let-down people are feeling from
the high expectations they had during his earliest days in office when she and others thought he was going to be "the next messiah."
Lesson Teaches Children Obama Is A Messiah. During the Soul Train Awards in 2012, comedian and actor Jamie Foxx exhorted
a wildly cheering crowd to "first of all (give) honor to god, and our lord and savior Barack Obama," exhibiting the all-too-widespread
hero worship that casts rational thought aside and labels even legitimate criticism as virtual blasphemy. The same cult of
personality is creeping into lesson plans and reading materials being created under the guise of the platform for nationalized education
known as Common Core. One new lesson teaches our children that Obama is indeed the messiah.
Obama Worship Syndrome. Primarily affecting
low-information voters and members of the mainstream media, Obama Worship Syndrome attributes impossible capabilities to Obama's political
opponents, finds excuses for every Obama failure in everyone around him and praises the president as the finest politician — nay,
human being — of our time.
third grade book goes full Dear Leader on Obama. [Quoting an Amazon review of the book:] I'm pretty neutral about
Barack Obama as a person and a candidate, but the messianic message in this utterly insipid book makes me roll my eyes over and over
again. The language is decent enough on a technical level for that age group, though patronizing. When he starts seeing the
ghosts of JFK and MLK and references are made to Langston's Harlem, I'm not sure that the kids that the book is aimed at are going to
pick up on the references. The illustrations are passable in the beginning, but as it continues, they become more and more
over-the-top (Barack Obama crying in church, Barack Obama praying with a butterfly perched on his clasped hands, Barack Obama glowing
with a heavenly aura). Cramming this political tripe into a children's book is bad enough, but the heavy-handed treatment and
political sloganizing makes it unbearable.
Obama Hailed as
'the Greatest Leader in the World' at Magic's House. President Obama partied with the stars in Beverly Hills on Monday
night [11/25/2013] to raise cash for the Democratic House and Senate campaign committees. [...] In a tent on the grounds of Magic
Johnson's mansion, the former Lakers star hailed Obama as "the greatest leader in the world." With ticket prices between $2,500
and $15,000 a head, the crowed included Samuel L. Jackson and Diane Keaton along with some L.A. Clippers players and
members of Congress.
One Nation Under Obama?. Before President Obama was elected, the
United States was known as one nation under God — but the Obama Administration seems to think otherwise. Organizing For America published an email Sunday
[11/17/2013] suggesting the greatest nation on the face of the Earth owes its allegiance to another deity. [...] No wonder the Democratic National Committee voted
to remove the Almighty from their party in 2012. They only have room for one God.
Obama's 1984. From the beginning of his presidential
career, Obama has been at the center of a cult of personality unequalled in American political history, an idolatry that is central to
consolidation of control. From the iconic "Hope" campaign poster showing Obama gazing off toward the utopian horizon much like the
workers of Soviet propaganda art, to the tendency of news editors to print photos in which Obama's head is haloed by the Presidential Seal,
the President has benefited from a cult of personality consciously constructed by his supporters in political and media bureaucracies.
This deification — which is itself a subtraction from the power of average Americans — is summarized by a gushing comment of
Newsweek editor Evan Thomas: "In a way Obama is standing above the country, above the world. He's sort of God. He's
going to bring all different sides together."
Ceausescu, Obama: How Marxist Leaders Conceal Their Pasts. [T]here is a nauseating glasnost-style operation now being
conducted here in the United States that makes me feel as though I were watching a reenactment of the immense glasnost I used to manage
during the years when I was an adviser to Romania's communist president Nicolae Ceausescu. No, glasnost is not a misprint or a typo.
During the years I was at the top of the KGB community, glasnost was the code name for an ultra-secret intelligence tool of the KGB's
ultra-secret black "science" of dezinformatsiya. Its task was to transform the country into a monument to its leader, and to
portray that leader as god himself.
shows Obama campaign video that includes celebrities pledging 'be a servant to the President'. A Wisconsin middle school has been forced to
apologize after showing students a video produced after Barack Obama's 2008 election that included celebrities pledging to 'be a servant to the President.'
Some parents who watched the video at an assembly at Hudson Middle School in Hudson, Wisconsin, called it propaganda and complained that it was inappropriate
for young minds. The video, produced by Oprah Winfrey's production company, [...]
Congresswoman: Only Reason I'd Vote for Syria Attack Is Loyalty to Obama. Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton said Tuesday
that at the current time, the only reason she would vote in favor of an attack on Syria was out of loyalty to Barack Obama. Appearing on radio's
Bill Press Show, the non-voting delegate from the District of Columbia also said if the President actually gets the votes he needs, "it'll be
because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don't want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage".
The Editor says...
Remember, if the District of Columbia becomes a state, this woman (and two like-minded senators)
will be able to vote in the U.S. Congress.
Obama Flag at March on Washington Gets Twitter
Riled Up. We know a picture is worth a thousand words. Apparently it's also good for fifty stars. An American flag with
President Barack Obama's face where the fifty stars normally go caused a bit of a stir on Twitter, where some objected to the "hero worship" of Obama,
and complained that it was part and parcel with the rally's overall "Democratic" feel.
Pledging Allegiance To The Flag Of The Obama
Nation. A U.S. flag with the president's face replacing the field of stars resurfaces at the March on Washington's 50th anniversary, turning
the symbol of freedom many have fought and died for into a campaign prop. It has been a while since President Obama accepted his first nomination among
faux Greek columns in Denver in 2008. But judging from the reappearance of the "Obama flag" at a march celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A
Dream" speech, the cult of personality that has risen around him has not been diminished or discouraged.
The Editor says...
Look at the creases in that flag. That thing is a commercially available product — not just a one-of-a-kind creation put together by
First Newsweek, now Foreign Policy calls
Obama 'Second Coming'. Foreign Policy Magazine has just delivered its new issue, and like Newsweek before, FP dubs Obama "The Second Coming."
It includes stories about the 10 things the president can do now "to make the world a better place." Among the ideas: "Fix American Democracy."
That includes changing our election system.
Our Father, Who art in the White
House. Do you accept Barack Obama as your Lord and Savior? Chris Rock does — calling him our father, who
art in the White House. The media does as well.
Rock: President Obama 'our boss,' 'dad of the country'. Actor and comedian Chris Rock called President Obama the "dad
of the country" as he rallied on Capitol Hill to support his father figure's call for new gun controls. "I am just here to
support the president of the United States," said Mr. Rock, [...] "The President of the United States is, you know, our boss.
But also, you know, the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country. And when your dad
says something, you listen.
No, Chris Rock, He Ain't My Daddy, or
Yours. [Scroll down] If you want government to be a quarterback that steers people and resources toward "good" opportunities, and deflects them
from "bad" choices, you are a progressive statist, whether right or left. But, if you want government to be a sheriff, that takes a dim view of people hurting,
cheating, or forcing their neighbor, then you are a defender of liberty and limited government: Freedom except when fist hits nose. Finally, if you
argue that challenging the permanent 20% jump in spending and the relative size of the federal government we've experienced with this administration is
tantamount to rejecting roads, schools, police and fire protection, you're either ignorant or dishonest.
A Black Father in the House.
By now you likely have heard that Chris Rock considers Barack Obama America's father. If that is true, then would somebody call
Child Protective Services and find us foster parents! [...] Chris Rock wants a daddy who has spent the family's mortgage money, and
can't keep food in the fridge. He wants a father who has gambled away the kids' college fund, and made us believe he "invested"
our money. All that is left for Obama to do is to kill mother for the insurance.
Leader: CNN Correspondent Wrote Obama Letter Every Day for Four Years. Most people would cut a 13-year-old girl some slack if she
became obsessed enough with Justin Bieber to write the teen singer emails and letters all the time, but what if an ostensibly professional
journalist were to do the same to a politician? This odd scenario actually is not a hypothetical, however. A CNN correspondent named
Tom Foreman has been doing just that, writing a letter every single day to President Obama for the past four years.
Inauguration Poster Likens Obama
to Jesus. Street vendors and souvenir stores across Washington, D.C. are selling posters depicting President Obama as Jesus
Christ — and one national news publication called him the "Second Coming." The poster, which does not have the official
endorsement of the White House, features an image of the president in prayer with the headline, "Prophecy Fulfilled."
are comparing Obama to Jesus. Glory be, it's Obama's inauguration day! And for some of his followers, it's nothing
less than a religious event. Fox News (who else?) reports that mega Obamaphiles are handing out posters in the streets of DC that
claim Obama's coming was predicted by the Bible.
2013: Obama saved the world, but nobody knows how. Platitudes, slogans, and talking points are not policies. "Cleaning up the
mess" of his predecessor is nonsense unless one can state exactly what policies caused the mess to begin with. Tax cuts in 2001 and 2003
have nothing to do with the financial crisis of 2008 in the same way that Clintonomics does not deserve credit for the 1990s dot-com economy or
blame for the 2000 crash. If liberals cannot name a single successful Obama economic policy, then maybe it is possible that he has never
had one. Maybe his supporters despise his predecessor so much that they do not care what Obama does. They love Obama for merely being.
Campaign journalists 'swooned' over Obama during off-the-record bar visit. "The behavior of the assembled press corps was
telling. Everyone, myself included, swooned. Swooned! Head over heels. One or two might have even lost their
minds," [Michael] Hastings writes, as each reporter had a chance to speak personally with the president. "We were all, on some
level, deeply obsessed with Obama, crushing hard, still a little love there. This was nerd heaven, a politico's paradise, the
subject himself moving among us — shaking our hands, slapping our shoulders!"
Government: America's New God.
[T]he insidious spirit of anti-Christ emanating from the Obama administration has spread far and wide. All historical rules for
winning and losing elections do not apply to Obama. His political bullying power and irrational status as a cult hero are
unprecedented. But here is the kicker and the scariest truth about America's zombie-like loyalty to Obama. On November 6,
2012, half the country, which includes millions of Christians, chose a Democrat and media man-made "golden man" idol as their "new" Lord
and Savior. Amazingly, actor and Obama disciple Jamie Foxx admitted it.
Scandals show the
Obama administration is corrupt. Many Obama supporters worship him not for anything he does, but for what he is, and is not:
He is a biracial political liberal, the culmination of liberals' hopes and dreams. He is not a conservative Republican. For many
liberals, that suffices.
Progressives and the Supernatural Powers of Government.
If we are to understand Progressives, we have to understand that they are True Believers in the power of the State to make all of
society whole simply by passing and administrating laws that are created "in the public interest." This religious belief is
non-negotiable. E.J. Dionne believes ultimately that the State is God. So does Jim Wallis, and both men believe that
Barack Obama is the very epitome of the Holy State and that Obama "is going to save us."
The gospel according to David. [David]
Gregory appears to be a disciple of his Lord the President. Gregory seeks to disseminate the Obama gospel. "Is this your Lincoln moment?"
Gregory actually asked him. And that may not have been the worst of it.
Claim: 'Hail Obama' Chants at First Lady
. At campaign a rally featuring First Lady Michelle Obama in Daytona, Florida, there were reportedly chants of "Hail
Obama," according to one local reporter.
Jamie Foxx: 'Our Lord and Savior
Barack Obama'. Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx recently called Barack Obama "our lord and savior." This occurred at the
previously recorded Soul Train Awards broadcast on BET Sunday.
Barack Obama Isn't Anyone's "Lord and
Savior". Given the job that Barack Obama did in his first term, anybody who's waiting for Barack Obama to be his "lord and savior" is
going to be waiting a long, long time.
Is it a Mental Illness? And they talk about
Rick Warren Says Obama
Deification is Blasphemy. Instances of the president being portrayed as a Christ-like figure have increased since the Democratic
National Convention — where unauthorized street vendors sold Obama prayer garments and posters that proclaimed him to be "prophecy
fulfilled." A painting of the president portrayed as the Crucified Christ is on exhibit at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston.
The artwork shows Obama with outstretched arms — a crown of thorns on his head. But one of the more egregious instances of
deification came during last week's Soul Train Awards. "It's like church over here," Foxx told the audience. "First of all, give an
honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama."
President-for-Life, King of the World paving the way for Messiahship.
Barack Hussein Obama is not only not denying his Messiahship, he's basking in the new role cast for him by gloating supporters. At Sunday's
Soul Train awards, Obama was nominated as "Our Lord and Savior" by Oscar-winning actor/comedian Jamie Foxx, who was answered by a wildly cheering
throng. The YouTube showing the cheering throngs to Foxx's naming Obama "Our Lord and Savior" was mysteriously removed from the Internet
yesterday morning [11/27/2012].
Another creepy pro-Obama
video featuring singing children
. You remember the creepy Obama children's choir singing "Yes We Can" back in 2008.
Now Obama supporters have rolled out another creepy video, via NewsBusters which has the full lyrics.
Russell Crowe: 'Obama is the light
& the future'
. President Obama received a surprise endorsement from another Hollywood star over the weekend. In a tweet on
Sunday [10/21/2012], Russell Crowe appeared to make the unusual argument that a vote for Obama meant "going towards the light."
Christmas Tree Pays Homage to Obama — But Not Jesus
. The 63-foot Sierra White Fir lighted at the
U.S. Capitol Grounds on Dec. 6 as the official 2011 Capitol Christmas Tree includes a prominently displayed
ornament paying homage to President Barack Obama, but includes no ornament readily visible to a person standing
near the tree's base that uses the word "Christmas," or includes an image of the Nativity, or bears the name or
image of Jesus Christ. On the north side of the tree — at a height of about 4 feet and
easily visible to people standing near it — there is an ornament that says: "I ♥ President
"If You Love Me, You Got to Help Me Pass This Bill"
. Flashbacks from 2008 ought to be
in full swing, as President Obama attempts to champion legislative support by resorting to the cult of
personality — claiming that, to love him, we must implement his political agenda.
Brilliance Of Barack Obama
. Ever since Barack Hussein Obama emerged as a candidate for president
he has received glowing accolades from celebrities and liberal pundits for his supposed intelligence.
After his election, Barbra Streisand gushed, "It's such a wonderful thing for our country and our world.
He's so intelligent and so smart." Gore Vidal was on the Joy Behar show and lamented that "he's too
intelligent for the job." Behar agreed and said that after George W. Bush's presidency, the
American public wasn't prepared for "the shock of such a smart guy."
Woody Allen thinks Obama
would get much more done as dictator
. "It would be good...if (Obama) could be dictator for a few
years because he could do a lot of good things quickly," Allen is quoted as saying.
says President Obama should be granted dictatorial powers (seriously)
. Woody Allen has a strange
take on the democracy that allowed him to become rich and famous. The "Scoop" director said it would be a
cool idea for President Barack Obama to be dictator for for a few years. Why? So he could get things
done without all the hassle of opposing views getting in the way.
Obama Dictatorship: Hollywood's Dream Come True
. In 2008, when Woody Allen last spoke of Barack
Obama to a group of Spanish journalists, he declared that it would be a "disgrace
" if the then-U.S.
Senator failed in his quest to become the 44th President of the United States. Now, 16th [sic] months
into Obama's first term, Allen has apparently mistaken La Vanguardia
, a Spanish newspaper, for the
Obamanutz: A Cult Leader takes
the White House
. Author and columnist, Joy Tiz provides a compelling look at Barack Obama's dizzying
rise to power. Until now the focus has been on Obama and his story. This approach overlooks the complex
convergence of political, economic and social issues that made Obama's election possible, if not inevitable. Tiz
identifies the similarities between the abrupt ascendancy of Obama and mass movements of the past. She points
out that our attraction to charismatic leaders dates back to primitive times when people had faith in magic.
Love the Founders
. America never had a rock star president until the Obama campaign.
George Washington made very sure no one would suspect him of being an Obama. Lincoln never claimed
to be an Obama. None of our presidents have paraded themselves as Obamas — not until Obama
came along and brought the psychology of self-glorifying narcissism to these shores. And the Left
snapped to and saluted Obama, worshiped at his feet of clay in that ancient and corrupt way that humans
have known for millenia. Are rock stars your idea of an American president? If so, please go
back to school and read a little history.
Obama's Burden of
. This adulation may cause a serious problem for supporters of the president.
Joe Scarborough pointed this out on his MSNBC program: "I tell you my biggest fear for Barack Obama,
he has been sainted. He is Saint Barack. The same mainstream media that tried so desperately to
get him elected has engaged in hyperbole, engaged in exaggeration. They have deified this man. ... They
have set up such unrealistic expectations that no politician could meet those expectations." Scarborough
might blame the media for this hyperbole, but they are only willing accomplices.
All Must Love Obama
In a little over four years, Obama went from being an obscure Illinois State Senator to the most beloved man in
the world. In the year since Obama's election this orgy of adoration has continued unabated with schoolchildren
singing his praises, the Nobel Committee bestowing him with its highest honor and National Endowment of the
Arts Chairman Rocco Landesman calling him the most powerful writer since Julius Caesar.
The Making of a Fuehrer
: When cheering for
someone turns into adulation, something is wrong. Excessive adulation is indicative of a personality
cult. The cult of personality is often created when the general population is discontent. A
charismatic leader can seize the opportunity and project himself as an agent of change and a revolutionary
leader. Often, people, tired of the status quo, do not have the patience to examine the nature of the
Obama and the Spirit of Antichrist
down] CNN went so far as to compare Obama's inauguration to the Hajj — the journey by Muslims to the holy
city of Mecca, an obligatory pilgrimage that demonstrates their dedication to Allah. In Des Moines, Iowa, an inaugural
parade for Obama included a simulation of the triumphant entry of Christ in which a facsimile of Obama rode upon a donkey.
As the reproduction made its way down the streets, palm branches were handed out to onlookers so that they could wave them
like Christ's adorers did in the 21st chapter of Matthew.
Obama's ties to the Nation of Islam
Jeremiah Wright, Obama's esteemed pastor for 20 years, came out of a Nation background. Recently he
accepted protection from an NOI security detail, and has praised Louis Farrakhan, the NOI's leader, as one of
the "giants of the African American religious experience." Wright's church celebrated Farrakhan for his
having "truly epitomized greatness." Farrakhan himself endorsed Obama, calling him "the hope of the
entire world," "one who can lift America from her fall," and even "the Messiah."
Obamamania is making me
. Don't get me wrong. I like Barack Obama. I think he'll be way better as
president than the other guy would have been. Obama is young, smart and inspiring. New generation
of leaders, America's first black head of state, all that. Wonderful. But really, the spin and
fuss about the new guy's coming inauguration, particularly in Canada, is becoming more than a little
nauseating. Have we no shame?

half-Luo tribesman from Hawaii whose African father had no connection whatsoever with the West African
ancestors of American slaves, was not imbued, but rather hued, with significance. His melanin carried
the meaning, which is to say that he was judged by the color of his skin rather than the content of his
character, in a precise reversal of Martin Luther King Jr's famous phrase. America's African Americans,
who have failed to produce a credible leader in the two generations since the Civil Rights Act of 1965, broke
America's last color bar, hailed this carpetbagger as a savior.
Mason: People Are Worshipping Obama More Than God
. According to Mason, "Mao Tse Tung
wasn't so venerated and people weren't so fearful of disagreeing with him as the Congress of the United
States including the Republicans who are afraid to disagree with anything he says or does because they'll be
called a racist."
A Nation Tottering Close To Political Idolatry
With all the fanatical behavior being exhibited, one must stop to ask would this devotion reach such a fever
pitch if Obama was White or, even more importantly, conservative?
Obama raises heart rates, lowers
. How dazzling is President Obama? So dazzling that he didn't merely give a dazzling
inaugural speech. Any old timeserving hack could do that. Instead, he had the sheer genius to give a flat dull
speech full of the usual shopworn boilerplate. Brilliant! At a stroke, he not only gently lowered the
expectations of those millions of Americans and billions around the world for whom his triumphant ascendancy is the
only thing that gives their drab little lives any meaning ... .
'Pocket Obama': Must-have Anthology of Obama Quotes
. Just in case you can't get through a day without
some refreshing and uplifting words from the new president, the History Company has created the "Pocket Obama." This
is a tiny, pocket-sized book filled with "quotations borrowed from Barack Obama's speeches and writings." According
to its creators, "It is an unofficial requirement for every citizen to own, to read, and to carry this book at all times."
I kid you not.
An Uneasy Feeling
. I distilled from
the press coverage and the crowds and the punditry yesterday that for all too many suddenly a vote
for Obama redeems America. Now, to paraphrase Michelle Obama, for the first time in their lives they are apparently
proud of the United States. ... So I am surprised that suddenly the election of a single individual means that we are
united, patriotic, proud of America? Suddenly Okinawa or Antietam, or all those who died at the Argonne, are ours
to claim again?
After less than a week in office, Barack Obama's approval rating
plunges 15 points
. Barack Obama might have been in office for less than a week, but the
euphoria is beginning to wane. The new President's approval ratings have fallen from a stratospheric
83 percent to a more modest — although still impressive — 68 percent.
. [Scroll down] Even so, the people spoke. A victory for the hysterical
Oprah Winfrey, the mad racist preacher Jeremiah Wright, the mainstream media who abandoned any sense of
objectivity long ago, Europeans who despise America largely because they depend on her, comics who claim to be
dangerous and fearless but would not dare attack genuinely powerful special interest groups. A victory
for Obama-worshippers everywhere. A victory for the cult of the cult. A man who has done little
with his life but has written about his achievements as if he had found the cure for cancer in between winning
a marathon and building a nuclear reactor with his teeth. Victory for style over substance, hyperbole
over history, rabble-raising over reality.
Obama's ratings drop 15 points
Barack Obama's approval ratings have nosedived by 15 points after only six days in office, according to a
new poll. The Gallup poll shows that reality is setting in for the new US President after the euphoria
that greeted his inauguration last Tuesday. But his ratings still stand at an impressive 68 percent
despite the fall.
Obama's Little Red Book
actually it's blue, but that doesn't diminish the Pocket Obama's creepy resemblance to Mao's Little Red
Book. ... What exactly justifies this cultish adoration of a man who hasn't been president for even a week?
Beam Down to Earth, President Obama
. We are already seeing that simplistic polarity was
infantile — even if the enthralled media desperately wanted to believe in the mythology. ... Obama
should decide quickly whether to beam back down to earth. If he doesn't, at some point even a
sympathetic media won't be able to warn him that his all-too-human actions are beginning to make a mockery of
his all too holy sermons.
Obamamania sparks changes
"Good morning, Barack Obama Elementary School!" That is what children attending the former Ludlum Elementary in
Hempstead, New York have been hearing ever since the local school district board voted unanimously to change the name to
honour the United States' first black president. Barack Obama took office barely 10 days ago, but already schools
and streets are being renamed. In the Hempstead case they didn't even wait until Inauguration Day ... .
folks have pointed out that Barack Obama has been treated by his supporters in and out of the media like a new
messiah, the savior, the chosen one. Many other folks, including me, thought that this was not only
sacrilegious but a case of downright overblown rhetorical politics. Now I'm not so sure.
How Obama Stimulates Feminists
Barack Obama is the first affirmative action president in our nation's history and the evidence for his being
so is overwhelming. Throughout the course of his rise to the pinnacle of American power, he was benefited
time and again from the hand of identity politics. Obama's fairytale life is a Shangri-la fabricated
from society's obsessions with oppression. ... Indeed, he is a beacon of promise for all who covet unearned
con artists have taken over the asylum
. While the Obama Cabinet choices suggest this is already
among the more ethically questionable administrations in modern history, that's not even a particularly big
deal in my eyes. The most disturbing thing going on in America today is the art world's complete and
utter totalitarian behavior toward the new president.

Obama Worship and the Herd Mentality
Despite pledges of being an open and ethical administration, and despite Obama's promise of a lobbyist-free administration,
we now see a long string of ethically questionable Democrats and lobbyists connected to Obama's past and his present nominated
for lucrative jobs within his administration. Yet there are no complaints from the left, who were so caustic over
George W. Bush's ethical failings. Obama can do no wrong in their eyes. The transition is remarkable but
Denver archbishop warns against 'spirit of
adulation' surrounding Obama
. Canadians packed St. Basil's Church in Toronto on Monday evening
[2/23/2009] to hear Archbishop Charles Chaput speak about how Catholics should live out their faith in the

He'll Only Break Your
. I owed it to you to give him a chance. I watched him. I listened to him.
I read about him. And as I learned who he really was and what he really wanted, it became harder and
harder for me to bite my tongue. It was too much to hope that you would see this on your own, and now
it's time someone told you what you need to hear. You hang on his every word. Each of his
silver-tongued pronouncements takes you higher, draws you closer, beckons you to drink deeper. You
want to believe the promises of a better life, of being whisked away to a place where danger can't find you,
of a place where your heart can stay intact. He promises you the world and he gives you something to
During the presidential campaign, I alternately ground my teeth and laughed
uproariously every time I heard Barack Obama described as a "former professor of constitutional law" on
the basis of several years of part-time lecturing at the University of Chicago Law School. Obama
supporters assured us that never had any presidential candidate before Obama been so wise, so learned, so
scholarly in his knowledge of the U.S. Constitution.
The Celebrity President
Americans have a long-standing infatuation with celebrities. ... The emergence of Barack Obama marries American
popular culture and American politics. Unfortunately, as a result, mounting evidence suggests that up to
this point the general public has disconnected Obama the celebrity from Obama the politician.
Obama: The Hollow Man
down] This point may say more about Obama's supporters than the man himself. His fans —
and "fans" is certainly the right word — don't look on him as a manager they've hired to make sure
the Department of Housing and Urban Development keeps its graft to a minimum. They regard him as
spiritual leader. ... Political cults of personality are bad for another reason, besides their intellectual
shallowness. They blur the proper distinctions between public and private life. ... The blurring of
public and private realms, such as we see in the idolatry of public figures as if they were revered family
members or respected religious leaders, is a troubling sign for liberty.
100 days in office, coronated
. On his 100th day in office, President Obama will be "crowned" in messianic imagery
at New York City's Union Square. Artist Michael D'Antuono's painting "The Truth" — featuring
Obama with his arms outstretched and wearing a crown of thorns upon his head — will be unveiled on
April 29 at the Square's South Plaza.
Suckers United for
. [Scroll down] Anyone with a single grain of common sense saw right through
the man with the postage-stamp sized resume the first day he announced his bid for the presidency.
And as exit polling demonstrated beyond any doubt, Obama voters were so swept-off-their-feet they didn't
even know the basic facts about the candidates last year. They voted with their feelings, their
fancies, and their fools' gold blinders. Were they just old fashioned ninnies? Or were
they actually brainwashed?
Obama criticism shuts down
. If you want to stop a conversation in its tracks, just question something
President Barack Obama has said or done. It's not open to debate — and I don't think that's
healthy, for the country or the president. ... One example: Obama's comment to Jay Leno on "The Tonight
Show," comparing his bowling abilities to someone in the Special Olympics. Can you imagine the uproar
had Bush said that?
Paul School wants to change name to Obama
. A St. Paul elementary school has voted to officially change its
name to "Barack and Michelle Obama Service Learning Elementary," pending approval of the school board. ... The Webster
school name has been around since the 1880s, even though the current Webster building was built in 1925. The
school is named after statesman Daniel Webster.
An Unhealthy Infatuation With Obama
[Scroll down slowly] The infatuation matters because Obama's ambitions are so grand. He wants to expand health
care subsidies, tightly control energy use and overhaul immigration. He envisions the greatest growth of government
since Lyndon Johnson. ... Are his proposals practical, even if desirable? Maybe they're neither.
Antigua's 'Mount Obama' to be national
. Antigua plans to do more than just rename its highest peak to honor President Barack Obama. Prime
Minister Baldwin Spencer says his government wants to create Mount Obama Monument and National Park with a new network of
Nearer, My God
When Gerard Baker a year ago wrote in the Times of London that Barack Obama had "Ventured Forth to Bring Light
to the World," it was widely acknowledged to be a clever satire, but this past week we have broken new ground
in divinity politics. ... Religious tradition tells us that God created man in His image, but the press has
created this God in its image — diverse, multilateral, and nonconfrontational. He is cool, hip,
urbane, and extremely un-Texan. He is all that the Fourth Estate values in life, and aspires to be in its
own private dealings. He is all it holds dear.
: Excuse my mastery of the obvious, but I have to believe the greatest obstacle to
America's return to policy sanity is the electorate's cultish adoration of Barack Obama. ... I don't quite
understand how people, especially religious people, can place their trust for salvation in a fellow mortal,
but history shows they do, and present-day America shows they are. ... The mainstream media are his biggest
institutional enablers, drooling over his every utterance, irrespective of his many contradictions, his
assaults on the Constitution and our liberties, and his spate of broken promises.
Top Five Health Care Lies
: President Barack Obama walked into the Oval Office with a veritable
halo over his head. In the eyes of his backers, he could say or do no wrong because he had evidently
descended directly from heaven to return celestial order to our fallen world. Oprah declared his tongue
to be "dipped in the unvarnished truth." Newsweek editor Evan Thomas averred that Obama "stands above
the country and above the world as a sort of a God." But when it comes to health care reform, with every
passing day, Obama seems less God and more demagogue, uttering not transcendental truths, but bald-faced lies.
Gathering My Thoughts
As far as I'm concerned, respecting the office of the president has nothing to do with loving America and everything to do
with the man occupying the White House. The way I see it, it makes no sense to respect a man whom I believe is
single-handedly destroying the country simply because he won a beauty contest last November. Furthermore, I'm getting
tired of hearing what a magnificent orator he is.
want him to rule all African countries'
. In flip-flops, a faded old T-shirt and ragged trousers, Abraham
Laeyea looked the image of Africa's frustrating, dispiriting poverty. "We like Obama," he said. "We want him
to come and rule all African countries. He brings hope but we need employment, jobs for the youth."
Awake, I'm Having Nightmares
. [President Obama] is doing his best to destroy our industries with Cap
and Trade; bankrupt our economy with trillion dollar stimulus bills; bring Cuban-style socialized medicine to
America; turn a blind eye to nuclear-armed enemies; fund a criminal organization like ACORN with taxpayer dollars;
allow the DNC to take control of the census; threaten to silence the opposition through the so-called Fairness
Doctrine; and do everything but fly the hammer-and-sickle from the roof of the White House, and yet let him be
photographed holding hands with Michelle and the kids, and millions of us seem ready to give him a "Well done!"
and a friendly pat on the back.
Antigua's highest peak renamed
. Antigua's highest mountain officially became "Mount Obama" on Tuesday [8/4/2009] as the small
Caribbean nation celebrated the American president on his birthday and saluted him as a symbol of black achievement.
Debate Heats Up Over Renaming Of Dallas
. The debate to rename two Dallas schools after President Barack Obama and newly sworn-in Supreme
Court justice Sonia Sotomayor is heating up. Much of the focus has been on the call to add Mr. Obama's name
to a much-loved south Dallas school.
Obama and the Cult of Personality
[George Washington] set the country on a democratic course that would explicitly reject the cult of
personality. ... Perhaps for the first time in our history since Washington, the nation's present leader has
come to power through the cult of personality, except this time he appears to welcome and encourage the
movement surrounding him rather than reject it, as Washington did, in the interests of democracy. Barack
Obama ran a campaign largely based on personal charisma as well as the promise of "change."
Theological Virtue of Obama
. For quite a while now, there has been an excessive embrace of Obama,
sometimes bordering on reverence, from Europeans literally hailing him as their Messiah to schoolchildren singing
songs of praise to their dear leader. Have you seen the Obama "prayer candles?" How about the crucified
Obama? ... To observe Americans putting their "hope" in Obama, and even making Obama hope, is troubling.
Sadly, though, this is a logical, inevitable conclusion of an increasingly secular left that seeks salvation in
politics rather than conventional forms of religion.
Do Not Blame Barack
to what my title indicates, I probably judge Barack Obama more harshly than most reading this page. I don't think
he is just a misguided ideologue or merely a creature of expediency. I believe, practically speaking, he is an
evil man. That is to say, while he is largely ignorant like so many others, he has developed an affinity for
evil. He mistakes it for good. ... [But] without millions of fawning Americans, he would just be a community
agitator, vainly preaching Alinsky principles from a soapbox.
Obama, joins Barack, gets action figure
. The toy company that created the Barack Obama action
figure has done the same for his wife, Michelle — but don't even think about calling her a sidekick.
Dreams of their
. The popularity of Barack Obama with the nation's youth is attributable to the success
in weaning children from the authority of their parents; Obama acts surrogate. He's hip, cool (unlike
their parents) yet speaks with authority and seeming moral righteousness, it should be pointed out.
Our young desperately seek someone to represent authority and virtue to them; they have been taught to
ignore it in their homes, so seek it from celebrities, with Obama tapping into that fundamental need.
Came, He Saw, He Kowtowed
. It seems Rocco Landesman, the head of the National Endowment for
the Arts, didn't get the memo, literally. ... By demonstrating with brazenly self-abasing ignorance that
he is wholly Obama's man, Landesman is making it clear that the NEA is completely committed to Obamaism.
There's no need for any more of Mr. Sergant's tacky, Chicago-style pay-to-play. Self-humiliation sends
a far more powerful signal. No doubt the provincial official has pleased his Caesar.

Obama goes from
dazzle to drone
. [Scroll down] By contrast, the point of Barack Obama is to
dazzle. That's why he got all the magazine covers of him emerging topless from the Hawaiian
surf, as if his beautifully sculpted pectorals were long-vanished Pacific atolls restored to sunlight
after he'd fulfilled his pledge to lower the oceans before the end of his first term. The
squealing Obammyboppers of the media seem to have gotten more muted since those inaugural specials
hit the newsstands back in late January.
Obama school proposed
The Kern High School District on Wednesday morning will hold a public hearing and consider a petition for a new
charter school named after the nation's president. The Barack H. Obama Leadership Academy aims to
teach disadvantaged, at-risk teenagers and at the same time provide mental health services and substance
abuse treatment, according to the petition.
Obama Becoming More 'Transparent'
. It's important to recall that Obama was not elected because of his record or personal
achievements or the power of his ideas; by those standards, Obama offered very little. His appeal was to
the aesthetic side of politics; his supporters spoke of him, and at times Obama spoke of himself, in almost
mythical terms. He would not only govern well, they believed; he would transform the way politics was
practiced. Mr. Obama was so good, so pure, so very nearly perfect that, as one liberal person I correspond
with wrote me, our country did not deserve him.
Art of Obama Worship
. Campaign posters are discarded like yesterday's newspaper the
morning after an election, but not in the case of Obama. If anything, the demand for posters
bearing his image has only grown.
Barack Obama Jr: Babies named after the US
. It is hard to imagine a more personal endorsement of a politician than to give your
baby his name — after all, a vote takes a moment, a name is for life. But there is a tradition
of Americans reacting to their presidents in this way. The name Franklin reached its peak of popularity
in 1933, when Roosevelt's tenure was beginning.
in dire need of an intervention
. Denial is a river that runs through the White House, where the
denizens are in the grip of two major delusions: One, that the country really wants really expensive big
government, and two, that Obama is "sort of like God."
Triumvirate Destroying America
. [Scroll down] The problem is much deeper and far more serious
than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind
anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack
Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.
Obama is calculating, organized and evil
Obama wants control of all of us from cradle to grave. The trick of any wanna-be dictator is to ride in on the
white horse first... seduce the people by attending to contrived and manipulated needs, i.e. health care, jobs and
security. ... This is exactly what Hitler did to get voted in, then seduce and distract a nation, while inventing
enemies to destroy
. Many German fans, young and old, were robotically obedient, thinking they were doing the
right thing. A nation was destroyed and millions were slaughtered.
When Lame Ducks Attack
. [Scroll down]
Despite the best efforts of the mainstream media to keep the Obamanutz cult alive, at least a few Americans are starting
to question both Obama's competency and motives. While it is in our nature to look for the happy ending and believe
that the good guys will ultimately prevail, dismantling a cult is a large-scale project. There will be no Perry Mason
moment in which the truth is revealed about Obama, and the nation comes to its senses. Directly challenging the true
believer makes him dig his heels in deeper. The one truth about cults or mass movements is that the outcome depends
on the character of the leader. They often end badly.
Obama and the Morning After
Of course, the press sold Obama like the newest form of crack, getting the public fixated on his every word.
The same media that stalks Angelina and Paris anointed Obama the ultimate celebrity. And to the addicted
masses, entranced by leering reality shows and 24/7 texting, the Obama Show was just another sexually charged
extravaganza. But while reporters behaved like lovesick schoolgirls, Obama's sex appeal wasn't just
manufactured by the press. His handlers carefully crafted his image to seduce and excite.
Are Barack's Followers Mindless Fanatics?
Obama & the Eighty-One Percent True
. Recent polls reveal a giant gap in Obama's approval between parties, with 81% of
Democrats approving Barack's job performance, while only 12% of Republicans concur. Despite
unprecedented failure, why do liberals strongly approve Obama's performance? Barack's hyper-political
stance and stunningly inept decisions ought to repulse every patriotic American.
The Art of
. Campaign posters are discarded like yesterday's newspaper the morning after
an election, but not in the case of Obama. If anything, the demand for posters bearing his image
has only grown. ... What is striking about these paintings is not their quality, about which the less
said the better, but their consistent tone. They belong to that class of objects known as "devotional
. There's a fascinating YouTube video that explains exactly how Barack Obama
was elected. It's titled "Obama voters-Brainwashed with Change." None of those interviewed in this
video can articulate exactly what they think Obama stands for other than change. The voters are black,
white, young and old but they all believe that Obama as president will bring a change to the government.
Name Game: Obama Beats Bush in School Names
. He has been in the White House 18 months,
but President Obama already has seven U.S. schools named after him, far more than his predecessor George W.
Bush and a designation that educators say bucks the trend. ... Barack Obama Elementary School in Upper
Marlboro, Md., which opened its doors today, became the latest U.S. school to be named after the president.
It is surprising when any
new school is named after a Republican, since the public schools
are run by unionized
Obama Elementary Opens in Maryland
. The first school in the D.C. area named after the current
president opens Monday morning as the school year begins in Prince George's County. Barack Obama
Elementary School opens its doors in Upper Marlboro, Md., for the first time Monday [8/23/2010]. The
school is being touted as being an environmentally friendly "green" school.
Obama's Evolving Image
Barack Obama's image as president is still in a state of flux. No previous president put more effort into
image formation. Obama was presented to the country, with his own approval and collaboration, as a
religious figure, a prophet for a secular age. A messiah to match the new millennium, a god-emperor
possessing abilities beyond those of average men. His rhetoric, behavior, and iconography all reflected
this — the halos, the church-like lighting, the worshipful descriptions of his followers.
The Obamorons Strike
. During the 2008 election campaign I coined the phrase "Obamorons" to describe the uncritical
cheerleaders of Obama — the people who would leap to his defense even if he drove a truck over his
aged grandmother. Love-stricken TV host Chris Matthews comes to mind, complete with thrills running up
his leg, as does English major Maureen Dowd, lifestyle columnist for the New York Times
itself is a leading Obamoron outlet.

California: President Barack Obama Parkway, Orlando; Obama Way, Seaside; Barack Obama Charter

New Jersey: Barack Obama Academy, Plainfield; Barack Obama Green Charter High School, Plainfield.
New York: Barack Obama Elementary School, Hempstead.
Pennsylvania: Obama High School, Pittsburgh.
Texas: Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy, Dallas.
. The Normandy School Board voted unanimously Friday [9/17/2010]
to name its new elementary school in Pine Lawn after President Barack Obama. "If you put all politics
aside, he exemplifies the American dream," said School Board President Cozy Marks.
The Editor says...
If you put all politics aside — which Obama never does — he's still
with a blank
resumé. And really, if you put all politics aside, no school would be named for
Barack H. Obama in a million years. How well did Obama perform in school?
Nobody knows, because his transcripts have never been made public.
Chicago high school to be named for Obama. A new selective enrollment high school named after President
Barack Obama will be built near the former site of the Cabrini-Green public housing complex, Mayor Rahm Emanuel
announced today [4/24/2014]. The new high school will be built near the intersection of Division and Halsted
streets by Skinner North Classical School. It will open in fall 2017 with a freshman class of 300 students,
adding more students each year to ultimately hold 1,200 students.
Emanuel's Plan to Build Elite 'Barack Obama High School' in an Upscale
Chicago Neighborhood Has Parents Enraged. Shortly after he became president, Barack Obama killed
Washington, DC's school voucher program. His own Department of Education had concluded that students who
received the vouchers benefited from it and improved, but that did not matter a bit. [...] So, Barack Obama's
record on education opened to scenes of him siding with the powerful teachers' unions against the powerless
children our public schools are supposed to exist to educate. Barack Obama stood in the doorways of
private schoolhouses, keeping poor children out. His former chief of staff from those days is now
Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago. Emanuel's ear is made of even thicker tin than Obama's. Emanuel
announced Thursday [4/24/2014] that he intends to build a selective-enrollment elite public school in one of
Chicago's upscale neighborhoods, and he is naming it after one Barack H. Obama.
A parasite named
Obama. [Jason] Bond, a spider expert at the university's Department of Biological Sciences and its Museum of
Natural History, discovered several new species of trapdoor spiders in late 2012, and named one of his favorites, "Aptostichus
barackobamai" after the president. It had unique characteristics, Bond said, like Obama. This week Chicago Mayor
Rahm Emanuel announced plans for a Barack Obama Preparatory High School to open in fall 2017. There are already
schools, and roads, and even a mountain in Antigua, with the sitting president's name.

Barack Obama as the Messiah, think again. In an October 15th piece about union membership's lack of

The Editor says...
If you belong to a union that is a subsidiary of the AFL-CIO, ask yourself this question: Do you
really want to be part of an organization whose leadership equates Barack Obama with God himself?
If you say, "He was only kidding," do you really want to be part of an organization whose leaders will
say anything to win an election?
Obama's Screaming Meemies May Be A Recording
Obama is talking to his sheeple — back on the campaign trail. The only thing he knows how
to do is campaign. He was doing it here in the west this week but it is always the same old story and
lies. They always fill the audience with his union supporters and other special interests that will
scream and cheer on cue at his every word. I am almost convinced that the screaming and cheering is a
recording that they put on the videos. It is just so silly to hear this screaming and cheering after
every statement, when he has said absolutely nothing. He tells them that "undocumented workers" will
get free healthcare and they all scream and cheer, why?
Rev. Obama's Revival Meeting
To the untrained eye, the University of Arizona ceremony appeared to be a well-meaning memorial service visited
by a somber president attempting to heal the nation. However, to an educated onlooker, the event closely
resembled a tent revival run by a hypster whose pious pontificating was more about furthering a political agenda
than consoling the aggrieved. Was I the only one who recognized that when Obama entered the packed stadium,
all that was missing was a donkey and palm branches?
Jesus And Obama Tie In Recent Poll

The Fukushima 50 and
the White House Cipher
: [Scroll down] In another time, people would already be chiseling
the name of such an inept leader off all official tablets to hide from history his having reached such an
exalted place. As it is, perhaps we will have to settle for the unmaking of all the acts and legislation
undertaken in his name. Already in Asbury Park, N. J., one of the first schools named for him has
been shut down. It was an elementary school where the community spent $36,000 per pupil only to get low
test scores in return. Somehow it seems fitting.
Obama Re-Election and
the Cult of Personality
: The cult of personality can be best summed up as: a country's
leader using the mass media, staged public events and government assets to create an idealized and
celebratory public image often through unquestioning flattery and praise as well as outwardly sincere
empathy with the populace. This term in connection with Barack Obama was first brought up in 2008
campaign by the Hillary Clinton supporters and notable left-wing commentators such as Paul Krugman in the
New York Times in reaction to the tactics of the Obama campaign and the adulation of the media.
Orlando Unveils Barack Obama Parkway

. The administration is downplaying the revelation that the State Department blew $70,000 in taxpayer
cash buying copies of President Obama's books. As first reported in The Washington Times, the purchase was
meant to "engage key audiences in discussions of foreign policy." It's another uncomfortable reminder of the
degree to which those who surround Mr. Obama feel it necessary to bathe him in adulation.

flag with President Obama's image sparks outrage at Florida Democrats
. An American flag with President
Obama's image in place of the stars flew over a Florida county's Democrat headquarters long enough to enrage local
veterans who called the altered banner "a disgrace." Lake County Democratic Party officials took down the flag,
which flew just below a standard Old Glory on the flagpole outside headquarters in Tavares following complaints by local
veterans. But merely taking it down wasn't enough for several local veterans, who said they fought for the flag
Betsy Ross made famous, not one with a politician on it.
Dems entangled in Obama flag flap
President Obama's face in place of stars on an American flag flying at Lake County Democratic Headquarters in Tavares
irked a group of veterans on Tuesday [3/13/2012], who found themselves engaged in a verbal confrontation and the threat
of police action when they requested the flag be taken down. The matter was resolved peacefully when Democratic
party officials removed the flag.
Obama flag flies again
In 2008, someone in Seattle decided to make a buck by peddling Obama flags, American flags with the
image of The Won replacing the stars. I guess his image alone represents the 57 states.
The Democratic Party in Lake County, Florida, bought one and now, in the final year of Barack Obama's
presidency, the Flag of the Obamanation has created a stir.
The Obama Spangled Banner
We're getting a lot of e-mail about a faceplant from the Democratic Party in Lake County, Florida, which decided to
run a little Obama worship up the flagpole to see who'd salute. Not veterans in the local community, who dragged
the media out to the Democratic headquarters to make sure they reported on the altered flag they flew. .... It's one
thing for someone to go to the trouble of producing that flag, but another level of cluelessness to actually fly
it — and especially at the party's HQ. It demonstrates a deep disconnect between the Democratic
Party leadership and the people they claim to represent.
Remember, this flag was flown at the Democratic Party Headquarters.

Idol': Worship Obama, Not Jesus Christ
. Contestant Elise Testone on Fox's fading pop star showcase
"American Idol" sang a duet of sorts with Obama this week as part of her cover performance of the Al Green
classic "Let's Stay Together." Just imagine anything of the sort being done with former President George W.
Bush. Impossible, we know. But now word is out that a spiritual "Idol" wannabe has been told in no
uncertain terms by the producers not to sing the praises of Jesus Christ, according to The Daily News.
Barack 'brought us out of the dark, into the light'
. First lady Michelle Obama hit the
campaign trail again Tuesday [4/17/2012], preaching the Gospel of Barack and telling a Nashville fundraiser
that the nation is lucky to have him at the helm. "We are so blessed to have him. We are so blessed,"
she said to applause. The reason: "This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light."
We Have a Narcissistic and Psychopathic Leader in the White House?
Remember the Obama praise songs that teachers taught their
students to sing in grade school? Remember those that swooned over Obama in his first campaign for the Presidency? Remember those
that fainted? Remember those that proclaimed that the Messiah had arrived? One has to ask if this over adoration is healthy.
Is this how we usually regarded our Presidents?
Michelle Campaign E-Mail: Barack's Your Husband,
. The Obama campaign has sunk to a new low. Today, Michelle Obama sent an email to the entire campaign list, titled "Being

The First Lady's Curious Theology
The theology of the Bible makes two things very clear. One is that angels are superior in every way to man, the other is that no angel in
Old or New Testament ever allowed themselves to be worshipped. Most of them claimed to be messengers or servants of the Lord and abruptly
halted any attempt to worship them. No Christian who has seen these examples would suspend the lessons taught by these examples and then
worship a man, even if he is a sitting U.S. President. In the one instance where a crowd was allowed to worship an orator after he
delivered a speech, that orator (Herod) was stricken by an angel of the Lord and fell down dead.
The Editor says...
Barack Obama calls himself a Christian, but if that were true, he would have heard of Herod's story long ago,
and would not put himself in the same position.

Obama versus Jesus: Black Christians
. A poll claims that Romney will receive zero percent of the black vote. Well, if the poll proves correct, it
means that a vast majority of black voters are ignorant of the truth... or else they're racist. Black Christians who vote for Obama
knowing his crimes against Christianity and biblical principles have chosen to worship the idol of racial loyalty over their discipleship to
Jesus Christ. Pure and simple. [...] Incredibly, some blacks have completely forsaken their Christianity for Obama. A fellow PK

Obama Cult of Personality Dominates DNC
The Obama cult of personality dominates the Democratic National Convention to such a large extent that it has replaced the donkey, the traditional symbol of the

Actress Jessica Alba asks voters to pledge
allegiance to Obama
. The Obama campaign has launched its "For All" campaign, encouraging supporters to take pictures of themselves with their hands on
their hearts and a note explaining why they support President Obama. Actress Jessica Alba uses the Pledge of Allegiance as an example of the campaign in an
email to supporters.
The U.S. of O.
we had some fun at the expense of the Obama campaign's latest effort to attract voters whose age and IQ are both in
the 18 to 29 range. The campaign instructed its followers to write messages on their right hands then upload to
Facebook or Twitter photos of themselves pledging allegiance to the Dear Leader. The hashtag, #forall, echoes the final
words of the real Pledge of Allegiance.
Obama Revelation: Supporters Marking Their Right Hands
. The Obama campaign recently asked its followers to write messages
on their right hands and, with their hands pressed over their hearts, pledge their allegiance to Obama by posting these pictures on
Twitter or Facebook. A number of celebrities such as Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Jessica Alba complied. Of
course, for those who are not part of the Obama cult, such actions, as well as the very request, are creepy. The act seems more an
expression of quasi-religious adoration of and not just political support for Obama. But for one who has read the New Testament
closely, the actions are much more ominous.
Obama's Creepy Cult of Personality
Last week, the Obama campaign started selling a refashioned American flag with its logo replacing the stars, and then urged Americans to pledge
allegiance to Barack. Did we just wake up in Mao's China?

Obama Campaign Quietly Ditches Faux Flag
The Obama campaign produced a poster of an American flag, with Obama's "O" symbol replacing the field of stars, as an item of campaign merchandise, selling

Democrats Better Start Soul Searching.
It is in the nature of personality cults to fail at most things beyond generating and disseminating propaganda. This inability is the result of two
things. First, the personality's popularity is not results-driven. Since adoration hasn't been earned by achievement but by the advent of

A new species of fish was recently discovered, and it's been named after Barack Obama. The Bulletin of Alabama Museum of Natural
History revealed four presidents and a vice president have had their names given to recently identified fish.
The Year of "Our Savior" Obama.
The year 2012 was defined by the calculated re-emergence of Obama worship, no matter how obvious his failures in office.
writes letter to Santa Claus every single day for four years. Wait, no, not Santa Claus. What's the name of the
other jolly fellow who hands out free toys and candy to everyone as if by magic, and only the emotionally stunted believe in
him? Oh yeah, that's right: President Barack Obama. I had never heard of Tom Foreman before today, but that's only
because he's on CNN.
Obama's Speeches are Chilling. [Adolf Hitler] was,
quite likely, the greatest orator of the 20th century. Here in the 21st century, we have another great orator.
He, too has to power to move his listeners to act while disregarding consequences. He, too, has worshipers — some
who even refer to him as "Lord and Master." His Name is Barack Hussein Obama. And he is President of the United States
Pelley Hails Trilogy of Thomas Jefferson, John F. Kennedy and Now Barack Obama. Does journalistic insistence on catapulting
President Barack Obama into historic greatness and relevance know no bounds?
Obama Fizzles Out. In 2009 Newsweek editor
Evan Thomas summed up the MSM adoration of Obama when he said, "I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above — above
the world, he's sort of God." The god-factor resulted in a de facto "don't ask don't tell" pact between Obama and the media.
The media didn't ask Obama to detail his hope and change and he didn't tell. Gods don't have to explain themselves.
MSNBC Contributor Michael Eric Dyson:
Eric Holder 'Is The Moses Of Our Time'. In an elaborate effort to exonerate the members of President Barack Obama's Justice Department of any
wrongdoing in relation to the scandal surrounding the sweeping subpoenas of the communications records of journalists, an MSNBC panel implied that the
administration was the subject of persecution. During the discussion, MSNBC contributor and Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson said
that Attorney General Eric Holder, himself a victim of an elaborate right-wing effort to smear him, is "the Moses of our time."
Matthews: Obama Has Literally Never Done Anything Wrong. Chris Matthews, thy delusion knows no bounds. In a month where the
veritable pileup of scandals resembles an especially bad freeway car accident — indeed, on the heels of the PRISM revelation — Matthews
maintains that President Obama is as close to a perfect person as we've seen, potentially since Christ.
San Fernando Valley School Named After
Michelle Obama. School board members have approved a plan to rename a San Fernando Valley elementary school after First Lady Michelle Obama.
Los Angeles Unified board members voted unanimously Tuesday [6/18/2013] to name Valley Region Elementary School No. 13 after Mrs. Obama.
Mother uploads video of little
boy appearing to pray to the President. A little boy's prayer for President Barack Obama has sparked the ire of conservatives after his mother videoed her son
on his knees and uploaded it to YouTube. [...] 'You are good, Barack Obama. You are great and when you get older you will be able to do great things. Love,
Steven,' the boy concludes as he throws his arms into the air and screams, 'Barack Obama!' However, the reaction posted online to the YouTube video has been
massively negative, with many interpreting the prayer as a sign that the president is being idolized.
A Puzzled Ed
Schultz Marvels: 'It Amazes Me That People Don't Love Obama'. A perplexed Ed Schultz on Friday [9/13/2013] couldn't fathom why
Americans have failed to "love Obama." The MSNBC anchor highlighted a new poll showing that the President only has a 45 percent approval
rating. Schultz marveled, "I just cannot believe this number. Seriously."
Obama's Journey from
Arrogance to Incompetence. When he ran for the presidency, it was Barack Obama who never put limits on his criticisms
of others. He spoke as if the problems of the world would disappear with two events: the removal from office of his
predecessor and his arrival as president of the United States. Even in a profession not known for attracting modest
individuals, Mr. Obama's arrogance set him apart. In 2008 his campaign aides referred to him as the "black Jesus."
Lerner's Former FEC Colleague Has Emails Go Missing Too. The Federal Election
Commission recycled the computer hard drive of April Sands — a former co-worker of Lois
Lerner's — hindering an investigation into Sands' partisan political activities,
according to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. [...] One of Sands' tweets,
from June 4, 2012 read "I just don't understand how anyone but straight white men can vote
Republican. What kind of delusional rhetorical [sic] does one use?" Sands is a black female.
"Dear every single Republican ever, When will U learn that Barack Hussein Obama is simply smarter
than U? Stand down, Signed #Obama2012 #p2," Sands wrote on May 1, 2012. In a

A rodeo clown makes fun of Obama, and immediately loses his job.
Derisive mockery of Obama leads to termination.
The Missouri State Fair has banned for life a rodeo clown who wore a Barack Obama mask during a bull-riding competition and suggested that "Obama" might be run
down by an angry bull. "Hey, I know I'm a clown," the still-unidentified performer said. "He [Obama] is just running around acting like one.
Doesn't know he is one."
stunt leads to sensitivity training for Missouri State Fair clowns. The Missouri State Fair will force rodeo clowns to complete sensitivity
training after a clown mocked President Obama in a stunt one spectator likened to a Ku Klux Klan rally. The fair's commission also approved a lifetime
ban on the offending clown. The controversy began on Saturday [8/10/2013] at the fair in Sedalia.
The NAACP says the clown was guilty of
inciting violence against the president. The Missouri chapter of the NAACP appealed for the U.S. Department of Justice and the Secret
Service to launch an investigation and open a federal case against the rodeo clown who donned a mask of President Obama's face and mocked with the
crowd: Do you want to see a bull run down Mr. Obama? The NAACP says the clown was guilty of inciting violence against the president.
Republican congressman invites 'Obama rodeo
clown' to Texas. A Texas Republican congressman has invited a rodeo clown who has been banned from the Missouri State Fair for a mocking depiction of
President Obama to perform in his district. Rep. Steve Stockman, a conservative whose rural district stretches east of Houston, said he was extending the
invitation and defending the clown because liberals "want to crush dissent by isolating and polarizing anyone who questions Obama."
The White House Thinks Terrifying
Overreaction to Rodeo Clown Appropriate. A silly controversy surrounding a Missouri rodeo clown's decision to don a mask of President Barack
Obama before taunting bulls to attack him — a traditional practice in American rodeo culture — became frighteningly serious on Wednesday [8/14/2013].
Rather than push back against the overwrought response from some Obama supporters, offended by the mockery of the president, the White House has tacitly
condoned their response. Clown-gate is no longer a laughing matter.
Rep. Stockman invites
Obama rodeo clown to perform in Texas. A conservative Texas lawmaker is inviting a rodeo clown banned from the Missouri state fair to perform in the
Lone Star State instead. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.) says that the unidentified rodeo clown and his colleagues have been unfairly targeted by liberals "to
create a climate of fear." He invited them to come perform at a fair in his southeastern Texas district instead.
GOP Congressman Invites Obama Rodeo
Clown to Texas. Representative Steve Stockman (R., Texas) has issued an invitation to the unnamed rodeo clown who wore a President Obama mask while
performing at a fair in Missouri. [...] He blasted the critics of the rodeo clown for "ordering citizens into reeducation classes for mocking a liberal leader,"
and added that "Liberals have targeted this man for personal destruction to create a climate of fear."
Save the President from the Clowns:
Bring Back Lese-Majeste! By now all America has heard of the national tragedy that occurred in Missouri. A rogue rodeo clown insulted the
dignity of our princeps civitatis, I mean, President of the United States, at the Missouri State Fair. [...] Never before has our Republic faced such
a threat to our leader or our national future. Never before has the dignitas of our leading citizen been so violently attacked.
NAACP ripped for demanding federal
probe of rodeo clown dressed as Obama. Calls by the Missouri chapter of the NAACP for a federal investigation into a rodeo clown who donned a President Obama
mask at the state fair last week are misguided and hypocritical, a Texas Republican congressman told FoxNews.com on Thursday. U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman, who has invited
the clown who wore the mask to perform in Texas, said the request for probes into the incident by the Justice Department and Secret Service are "silly" and should be ignored.
Limbaugh: Outrage over rodeo clown same as Muslim
reaction to Muhammad toon. Rush Limbaugh weighed in on the recent uproar over a [Missouri] rodeo clown wearing a President Obama mask during a
bull-riding event, saying that it's "no different than those countries reacting freakishly when there were cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad," Mediaite.com first
reported. "It is as though President Obama is a messiah or is a god," he said, "and this little thing that happened at the Missouri State Fair is a
defamation, a denunciation, almost a religious sacrilege that took place."
Dem. Guest Tells Fox: NAACP 'Jumped the Shark' on Rodeo
Clown. Appearing on Fox News Thursday morning [8/15/2013], Democratic analyst Jehmu Greene told host Martha MacCallum and conservative radio
host Lars Larson that the NAACP had gone too far in calling for a Secret Service investigation of the Missouri State Fair rodeo clown incident. "The
NAACP has jumped the shark on this one," Greene said. "They do really great work in communities around the country. But this is — I
agree with you, Lars — it's ridiculous."
It's A Rodeo Clown, People,
And Clowns Too Have Rights. Rodeo clowns have been making fun of presidents for decades. Has everyone forgotten the incident at a Philadelphia
rodeo in 1994, where a clown used a dummy with a George H.W. Bush mask to taunt a bull that subsequently impaled the dummy and sent the mask flying?
No one was fired. But now, the screaming has begun from the progressive lynch mob over a rodeo clown in Missouri doing the same thing wearing an Obama
mask. These incidents may be in bad taste, but it's what freedom entails.
Dog the Wag. In "Beyond Good and Evil," Nietzsche
observed that "a man's maturity consists in having found again the seriousness one had as a child at play." Such might be the credo of the professional
clown. Yes, the professional clown. If it never occurred to you to think of clowning as a full-blown "profession," that makes two of us.
Reader, prepare to be educated.
Clowning Around. You can bet your bottom dollar that if the nefarious
Missouri clown had come across an equally cartoonish mask of George W., he would have performed the same bit with the bulls as he did with the Obama mask.
And Republicans would have laughed! Or if they booed, it would have been a laughing, good-natured sort of booing. Vaclav Havel (if my memory is correct)
wrote on how the inability of a powerful leader to laugh at himself was both the sure sign of decadence, corruption, and incapacity, as well as a sign that he was on
his way out, if only in the eye of the public.
Send in the Clowns. [Scroll down] In fact, the rodeo clown
incident so ticked off the true believers in their secular messiah that it sent them into Paula Deen syndrome. Once again, someone perceived to have offended
leftist sensibilities became a target for complete destruction. The left and the NAACP are actually calling for a federal investigation of the clown for
"inciting violence against President Obama." Yes, as a commentator at The Examiner points out, that would be the same left "who made movies depicting the
assassination of President George W. Bush, who hanged Sarah Palin in effigy, whose messiah mocked her as a pig with lipstick, [and who are now] destroying
the life of this man and his associates."
How a Missouri Rodeo Became a Phony Scandal.
If an eccentric, liberal, nudist musician had not attended a rodeo at the Missouri State Fair a week ago Saturday, the world would be a slightly happier place.
The State Fair would not have banned rodeo clown Tuffy Gessling for life. The NAACP would not have asked the Secret Service to investigate Tuffy for a "hate
crime." His clown colleagues would not have been dispatched to sensitivity training. And race tension nationwide would not have ratcheted up another notch.
Missouri's History Of Attacking Dissent.
Missouri has a history of persecuting its residents for disagreement with Barack Obama. Clowngate isn't the first assault against free speech.
Rodeo clown Tuffy
Gessling: Someone threatened to burn my house down. The controversial rodeo clown banned for life from the Missouri State
Fair for wearing a President Obama mask and mocking that a bull should run him down spoke out Monday about the death threats and fallout
since the incident. "I've had one lady spit in my face, called me a dirty name, spit in my face and walked off," Tuffy Gessling told
KCTV 5 News. "I've had somebody threaten to run me over. One of them wanted to burn the house down," he added.
Controversial rodeo clown
speaks out after death threats. [Tuffy] Gessling's antics drew angry rebukes from politicians, a lifetime ban from the
Missouri State Fair and more personal hits than he ever faced in the ring. "I've had one lady spit in my face — called
me a dirty name, spit in my face and walked off," Gessling said. And he says there have been five death threats.
The Obama Highway
— one of many!
I-20 be named the Barack Obama Freeway?
Sen. Royce West (D-Dallas) has proposed a bill that names
Interstate 20 between Dowdy Ferry Road and Mountain Creek Parkway as the President Barack Obama Freeway. The
bill — SB 1510 — will be considered in a public hearing before the Senate Transportation and
Infrastructure Committee Monday April 6 at the Capitol.
Testimony Against Naming Freeway After Barack Obama
. Choosing this
name for the freeway does not reflect the values of the Texans that will drive on it. President Obama did not carry
the state of Texas. His extreme liberal views on the issues of Life, Taxes, and Global Government are not shared by
the majority of Texans.
YCT Oppose Barack Obama Freeway Bill (SB 1510)
. "We should be naming
highways after people who have done things for Texas, not Chicago machine politicians trying to do things to Texas," said
Laura Elizabeth Morales, Senior Vice Chairman of YCT [Young Conservatives of Texas].
Lawmakers Propose Renaming Interstate Highway After Obama
. [Senator Royce] West's measure attempts to bypass
current laws which state that Texas freeways are named only in honor of 'deceased people,' and only people who 'were
significant in the state's history, or in the lives of people in this state.' Opponents, like Laura Elizabeth Morales
of the Young Conservatives of Texas, joked that any road named after Obama should be a toll road, with tolls that 'increase
with a driver's income.'
Prospect of Variable Toll Collection on the Obama Highway
. Laura Elizabeth Morales has
humorously suggested that if there is to be a highway named after Mr. Obama, it should be a toll
road. (I would suggest perhaps a toll road that runs headlong into an inescapable abyss, a black hole,
or an enormous pit of quicksand.) Ms. Morales further suggested that the toll should "increase with a
driver's income." That's an amusing quip, but upon further consideration, such a system is
Road To Bear President Obama's Name
. Is it too soon to name a road after President Barack
Obama? A new road being built through Orlando will have his name.
Built By Stimulus Money Named "Barack Obama Parkway"
. Orlando leaders made President Barack
Obama Parkway the first road under construction in the nation named after our 44th president, and surely one
of the few in history to be named after a sitting president in his first term.
A New Twist
in the Obama Cult of Personality
. It should be noted that the Orlando parkway will be the sixth
road named (or renamed) after our God-like president by officials, severely infected with the Obama virus.
The others are...
Obama's Mean Streets: Crime wave on Obama Way, Barack Obama
. A battery assault was reported to have occurred at 6:54 p.m. on the evening of February 22
in the 1600 block of Broadway Avenue, aka Obama Way, in Seaside, Calif. The alleged assault comes on the heels of
two reported thefts along Delmar Boulevard, aka Barack Obama Boulevard, in St. Louis, Mo.
'Obama Blvd.' Crime Update
. There have been 12 crimes on
Barack Obama Boulevard in St. Louis, MO, over a recent 9-day span. Between August 25 and September 3, there were nine
thefts, two robberies, and one incident of breaking and entering. In addition, one registered sex offender resides on Obama's honorary
highway, according to crimereports.com.
President for life?
All the adulation (noted in the subsection immediately above) can lead to dangerous consequences, and it
would, if Congressman Jose Serrano had his way. This just goes to show that liberals
are out of step
Obama Needs 'Third Term,' as MSNBC Analyst Suggests, He's in Trouble. Former Secretary
of State Hillary Clinton must be thrilled about this: "If you are President Barack Obama and you
want to be a transformational president, getting to that transformational stage sometimes requires
you get a third term," NBC News Senior Politics Editor Mark Murray submitted amid a sleepy Monday [5/5/2014]
segment packed with idle speculation about the 2016 election cycle. "People in the White House,
and President Obama, I am sure they would love to have a third or fourth term," Murray continued.
Obama 'Should Be Expanding His Prosecutorial Discretion'. At a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.)
said that President Barack Obama should be expanding his prosecutorial discretion when it comes to enforcement of immigration laws. "Unfortunately,
he should not be limiting his prosecutorial discretion. He should be expanding his prosecutorial discretion," Gutierrez said during a hearing on
the constitutionality and legality of actions the Obama administration has taken on issues like the enforcement of immigration laws.
law prof: Obama's unconstitutional power grabs are creating a "very dangerous and unstable system". Show of hands: Who thinks
Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will keep Obama in line? Before you answer, note that leading amnesty shill Luis Gutierrez argued at this same
hearing that, if anything, Obama should have a freer hand so that he can go about unilaterally legalizing the illegals Gutierrez has been effectively
representing in Congress for years. That's what's left of Democratic opposition to the imperial executive.
Urges Letting Obama Run for a Third Term so Senate Will "Fear Him". Four more years. 10 trillion more dollars in debt.
And by the end of it, we'll have a nuclear war in the Middle East and mandates forcing you to buy everything from electric cars to Michelle Obama's
trademark Soy and Asphalt pie.
No Uncertain Terms. On Wednesday [11/27/2013] we
observed that it's hard for a political humorist to keep up with the real-life absurdities of the Obama crowd. To illustrate the point, along
comes Jonathan Zimmerman, a historian at New York University, with an op-ed in the Washington Post arguing that we need to repeal the 22nd Amendment.
Now of course the way this was supposed to work was that Obama would be such an amazing president that he would come to seem indispensable.
Presidential term limits:
necessary and right, or bad for democracy? In an opinion piece published in the Washington Post, Jonathan Zimmerman, a history and
education professor at New York University, says deciding whether a president deserves a third, fourth or more terms should be left to the American
people, not the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, which placed a two-term limit on the position.
presidential term limits. Democratic lawmakers would worry about provoking the wrath of a president who could be reelected.
Thanks to term limits, though, they've got little to fear. Nor does Obama have to fear the voters, which might be the scariest problem of all.
Washington Post: Repeal presidential term limits.
As President Obama faces a small revolt within his own party, a Washington Post op-ed is calling for the United States to end presidential term limits
and allow him to run again in 2016. "Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for re election just as citizens should be allowed to vote
for — or against — him," writes New York University Jonathan Zimmerman professor of history and education. "Anything less
diminishes our leaders and ourselves."
congressman introduces bill to abolish presidential term limits. New York Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano reintroduced a
bill in Congress on Friday to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which places term limits on the U.S. presidency. The bill, which has
been referred to committee, would allow Barack President Obama to become the first president since Franklin Roosevelt to seek a third
term in office.
Dem House Proposal
Would Allow Obama to Run For More Than 2 Terms. Before you take up arms against the government, keep in mind this has been
proposed before in 2011 and died in committee. It would have to get two-thirds support in both houses, including our radical
right-wing hostage House of Representatives, and after that, three-quarters of the states would have to ratify it, or 38 states,
which is nearly impossible.
The Editor says...
Proposed repeal of the 22nd Amendment
Or Obama could bypass the Congress and implement it himself, which is entirely possible. It's worth noting that some
Congressmen are willing to introduce bills which have no hope of passing, thus wasting everyone's time. A law of this sort
would require an amendment to the Constitution. The only reason a Congressman might introduce such a futile bill is if he or she
knows the Constitution has been ignored and bypassed for so long that anything goes.
Introduced by Rep. Jose Serrano [D, NY].
Democrat Proposes Repealing 22nd Amendment on Presidential
. This bill was introduced into the Judiciary Committee on January 6 (first day
of the 111th Congress) and has no co-sponsors. Before anyone starts freaking out, remember that a bill
such as this must first make it out of committee, then be passed by two-thirds of the House and Senate, then
be passed by three-fourths of the States before actually happening. Regardless, this simply goes to show
that the minority party or individual (the smallest minority there is) should always have their rights respected
so as to provide a check against the majority.
Hail King Obama: President for
. As Inauguration Day approaches and Barack Obama prepares to assume his first term as
president, some in Congress are hoping to make it possible for the Democrat to not only seek a second term in
office, but a third and fourth as well. The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary is considering a bill
that would repeal the Constitution's 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from being elected to more than
two terms in office.
King of America!
And you wondered
why this country is in the shape it is in today! The sheer idiocy of such a move is breath taking.
But as long as we Americans continue to elect these clowns to lead us in the Congress, and in the office of
President, this is the kind of country we will continue to have, until it implodes as it has nearly done in
the past few weeks.
Getting started on term #2...
Obama in perpetual
campaign, Barbour says
. It's no coincidence President Obama has traveled to key swing states to push his
massive stimulus measure, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said Sunday. Barbour, a former chairman of the Republican
National Committee, said Obama's recent travel is an indication that the new president is already running for reelection.
And term #3...
planning third term
. Rush Limbaugh stirred up some trouble today [6/30/2009] when he suggested
Obama might have his sights on a third term: "You have to wonder if Obama is just trying to lay a
foundation for not being a hypocrite when he tries to serve beyond 2016. I wouldn't be at all surprised
if in the next number of years there is a move on the 22nd Amendment, which term limits the President of the
What If It Happened
Suppose, from a purely hypothetical standpoint, the crisis in Honduras was mimicked in the United
States? A fictional American president, lacking the votes in Congress and the judicial nod from the Supreme Court,
circumvents the constitutional process and holds an illegal national referendum to repeal the 22nd Amendment — thus
infinitely extending his potential for reelection. The obvious legislative differences between the United States
and Honduras aside, reactions would be nearly identical. Members of the Armed Forces take a solemn oath to
"support and defend the Constitution," not to a specific individual.
