The Seven Laws of the Obamanation

The First Law - When Obama makes a mistake, it is either ignored, or if it happens on a too public occasion to ignore, it is actually someone else's fault. See Obama's oath.

You can expect this law to kick in every time Obama makes a serious mistake in the public eye, or when his policies suffer a setback. It's one reason that Obama has stocked his administration with fall guys such as Hillary Clinton, who will take the blame when his foreign policy implodes.

Obama is incompetent, but following the Peter Principle, he's well aware that he needs fall guys to blame for his own failures.


The Second Law - The United States government is now first and foremost a tool for promoting Obama's cult of personality. From the Obama centered Whitehouse website, all down the line, the government exists to maintain Obama's permanent election campaign.

While the media will continue running a constant stream of puff pieces on Obama's wife and daughters, or Obama's latest golf club or vacation, the government will now be directed to building up the Obama image. The result already looks like something you would expect to see in Russia or North Korea or Saddam Hussein's Iraq. It will only get worse now that the government becomes part of the Obama propaganda machinery.

We can expect to begin seeing a serious shortage of real news, except for items reassuring us that Obama and the various members of the Obama Administration are working superhard on fixing everything wrong, except when it comes time to fix the blame on one of them for everything that is wrong.


The Third Law - Despite the media's already uncritical adoration of him, Obama will seek to bypass and subvert the media, to place his most valuable asset, his public image and his ability to shape the public's perception of him, under his control.

That means tightly regulating media access, as well as bypassing media outlets, for YouTube and left wing sites and streams more directly under his control. Paranoia is always deeply rooted in the incompetent, because they know how little they deserve the job. Obama knows that manipulating public perception is how he got the job. He knows how invaluable the media was in that effort. Like all tyrants, he must control that base of support, or risk seeing it bring him down.

Obama knows how fickle fame can be, which is why his control on the press has already tightened, turning press conference into pre-scripted charades.


The Fourth Law - Spread the worship around. Obama's success in part owes itself to the ability to make others emotionally invested in his success, for generational or racial or political reasons. Obama's secret is that he has no investment in their success.

Obama's Conservative outreach is part of a drive to make as many Americans as possible feel invested in his success. This will further enhance Obama's Reality Distortion Field that will prevent people from realizing his failures and his general worthlessness.

Like most successful con artists, Obama feeds off the emotional energy of his marks. He needs people to believe him and believe in him. When that happens, the believers join the collective delusion, making it that much harder for them to see through him.

This is a very dangerous and manipulative process with cultlike results. Investing emotional energy in a leader makes it hard to question him, and requires a great effort of will to realize that your belief in him was mistaken. Creating that emotional identification has been the key to Obama's success, maintaining and expanding it is now his goal. All the news stories and propaganda being conducted on his behalf has this overriding purpose-- to convince as many people as possible to believe in him and his mission.


The Fifth Law - Join up now. Belief is best implemented through action. Believing in a leader and actually working under him in some effort are two different things. Expect to see many more volunteer and community service programs, that will further embed tens of millions of Americans into the Cult of Obama.

The more effort individuals put into Obama's agenda, the more they must believe in him, in order to believe in themselves. This ugly hat trick is at the heart of most cult programming. It is at the heart of Obama's zombies. The trick is to subvert individual identity into the service of the identity of the cult leader, tying his purpose to yours, his esteem to your self-esteem.

People can lose faith in a normal political leader, but losing faith in a leader they have invested their own identities in, requires them to cut away a part of themselves, and is a very difficult deprogramming process. The more people come to believe that Obama's success is their success, and Obama's failure is their failure, the more power Obama gains over their hearts.


The Sixth Law - The old way is the new way, and the new way is the old way. Some of Obama's followers are slowly realizing that his progress and change simply mean repackaging everything that was in a new basket with a shiny new bow. Obama has no new ideas, as a matter of fact he has no ideas. He has plans, but they are not based on serious policies or the welfare of America, but his wishes and the wishes of his backers.

Change is a mantra, but not a reality. Obama's people are relics from previous administrations, power brokers and insiders. They're there to help him keep a grip on power and reassure everyone in D.C. and around the world, that it's still going to be basically be business as usual. At least as far as corruption and favors go.

Obama's new administration is all image, because there is no real substance. There are no ideas, there are only a handful of agendas, all of them old too. The rest will fall by the wayside. Spare change easily left behind.


The Seventh Law - Never mention the Emperor is naked. The real secret is just how weak Obama is. Obama's constant need for worship is a symptom of that weakness. So was his inability to stand up to Blagojevich and Burris. He surrounds himself with stronger men, because he is nothing more than a hollow image projected on the stage for everyone to worship.

Tyrants are typically weak and worthless men, petty and filled with self-loathing, desperate to affirm their self-esteem through the shouts and cries of the mob. Tyrants are typically foreigners, outsiders who don't identify with the society or the people they rule, and are made even more insecure by the knowledge that they don't belong.

This insecurity drives their ruthlessness need to control their image, to demand the worship of everyone, to consolidate power, to warp the minds of men and to lash out viciously at anyone who does not join in. Tyranny is insecurity combined with sadism. The tyrant who wants his image to be worshiped, cannot truly look himself in the mirror. Neither can Obama.

Obama is an outsider who has been afraid all along. He lies, he manipulates, but if he has one link to Lincoln, it is that he fears that he cannot fool all of the people all the time. But he is determined to try his best. Which is why he will spread his reality distortion field as far and wide as he can. It is why he will do his best to control the press, to take the blame for nothing, to keep lying and rolling out shiny new announcements that mean nothing-- hoping to stay one step ahead of the people he is fooling.

These are the laws of the Obamanation by which he intends to rule. These are the laws by which he hopes to hold on to the power he has illegitimately seized. These are the laws that must be broken for him to fall.

Superb! The bloggers who do not support the histrionic fool and his team of fools will keep telling the people the truth...and we can only pray that they will wake from the hypnosis...in time...I give him three months...and none of his rules will matter!

Well he is naked to those who are watching.

Sultan - on the money as usual.

I thought you might like to see the fruits of the Fifth Law.

I am watching all of this, from across the world. Obama scares me. He calls Abbas- first. that was a slap to Israel and Jews. He is going to go the Stephanie Powers route and nothing is going to stop him.

This guy will get so many people running inside the wheel to "make a change" that they won't notice that the've been duped until it's too late.

I care about all people, but I must care about my family first. I think that Israel has a messed up govt, but it's a whole lot better than what Jews are going to get in the US. "and a new pharoh arose, who knew not Joseph"... Sultan, be careful, because pretty soon, you might be in danger for your "hate speech" - like Geert Wilders. b/c that's the path the US is on. Just be careful. The Emperor is naked- you know it, I know it and the emperor knows it.

Great article.

On election day I watched a Canadian channel, Global National because the coverage on ABC, CBS, and NBC had taken sentimentalism to sickening levels.

One of Global National's reporters was discussing the song Hail to the Chief and said that in Obama's case he wasn't so much "Commander in Chief" as "Persuader in Chief."

I thought, wow, the Canadians have Obama pegged right. What a shame most Americans don't.

Speaking of Canada, I wonder why Bill Ayers was denied access to Toronto earlier this week. What do the Canadians know that would put him on such a list? Also, Ayers went to Cuba around the time of the election and suddenly Obama wants to have open relations with Cuba. What is going on?

Keli Ata said...

Susan--there are strict rules about entering Canada. Any prior arrest and you can't get into the country, even if it's something like a DWI ten years ago.

Ayers has a previous arrest and because of his history is probably also on a terrorist watch list.

But more than anything, it's because of the prior arrest. Canadian Customs are very strict about that.

Excellent writing good sir.

(walks away, head down mumbling, "damn these smart people and their writing abilities")

I didn't trust Obama, prior TO his elevation, by those in trance state. I trust him less now.

Wonder how the media will react to his constant antagonist demeanor?

Will they buck up and finally see what is before their eyes or are they masochistically head over heels, in love with this, this...well, you know.

Sultan Knish said...

I think some will turn against him, but for many it will be a case of, the more he beats them, the more they'll work to please him

The Gunslinger said...

"he's well aware that he needs fall guys to blame for his own failures."

Thing is...I'm not sure he does know. He has no experience failing on his own "merits". He has skated and been feted in every position he's ever held. What does he have as a standard of "worthiness" or competence except his own unquestioned success and popularity?

He may in fact, be a Special Olympics "winner" who honestly believes he's qualified for Seal Training because he's got such "high self-esteem" in athletics.

He's clearly naked. The question is, does he actually believe in the invisible clothes?

Sultan Knish said...

No I don't believe he does. He's too insecure to believe his own hype, and his need for constant adoration highlights that insecurity.

Genuinely confident people who believe their own hype may dive into situations that are out of their league, but they tend to play fair.

Obama has never played fair, or believed in playing fair.

The Gunslinger said...

I have to admit, the constant need for admiration and adulation does suggest something more than mere self-delusion.

I've been vacillating about whether he was devious or delusional.

Your side is winning so far.

Sultan Knish said...

If you muddle through his books, you come away with the picture of a man who always felt like an outsider and learned to ably manipulate people to get what he wanted from them

That's all the grown up Obama is, a con artist who's gotten very good at showing people what he thinks they want to see

SIREN said...

I haven't read the book, but these are quite right.

My fear is that we are in a trap. He can do no wrong. He is the first "minority" president who is very well protected by all media sources.

Thanks for posting this. In his first week in office, he has already aceeded to many demands from the muslim community, especially the Muslim Brotherhood network here in the U.S. and this leads me to think that he will please those who praise him and give him more power. Typical narcisitic personality.

THE PATHOLOGY OF THE LEFT

Obama, like his "friends," is a sociopath. For example, Bill Ayers is a very sick man. As Dr. Sanity says, a "malignant narcissist."

In fact, it's a disease the Left suffers from, almost exclusively. And it makes them very dangerous, because in their delusions of grandeur, they think that just because they say something is so, makes it so. Reality is what they want it to be, not what it is. So if something goes wrong, it MUST be someone else's fault. In fact, it's a lot like a certain intolerant "religion" that's in the news a lot lately, and which certain fools believe is "peaceful" in spite of mountains of evidence to the contrary.

Your snake does not look very deadly, being a small, nonpoisonous garden snake...unless you are a bug. Maybe that is our position and fate vis-a-vis the left.

Oregon joins the march toward tyranny: Brad Avadian, Oregon's labor commissioner, today approved a ruinous $135,000 fine against a husband and wife in Gresham, Oregon. who refused to provide a wedding cake for a lesbian wedding. They already have had to close their bakery due to threats and harassment from the gay community.
