The Messiah is Melting

Not so long after castigating Senator McCain for saying that the fundamentals of the economy were okay and Governor Palin for trying to talk to the people, past the press-- Obama encouraged everyone to focus on the sound fundamentals of the economy and decided to talk to the people and past the press, by going on Leno.

But then of course originality had never been Obama's strong point. With catchy slogans and book titles raided from everyone from Jeremiah Wright to Alice Walker, and a stylized portrait stolen from an AP photograph, Obama stumbled first to fame and then to power. Two months in and it's painfully obvious even to the press that Obama is a failure.

The double standard that kept him going this long required an endless propaganda loop and infinite second chances. It demanded that the public think the best of Obama and the worst of his opponents. So when Obama talked about visiting 57 states, it was written off as a meaningless gaffe, but when Palin talked about seeing Russia from Alaska, it was transformed into an ongoing taunt.

And now thanks to the wonders of the teleprompter and carefully screened questions from the press, we have a man in the White House who might be more incompetent than he is corrupt, or more corrupt than he is incompetent. With the economy stumbling further, stock in incompetence is rising, even while no other stock is.

There's no question about it, the paint is flaking, the antenna is bent and the wheels are coming off. To increasing numbers of Americans who did vote him, Obama is a nice guy who's completely out of his depth. A year in, the assessment is likely to be far worse.

Obama's national socialist agenda of bailouts and nationalization funded by deficit spending have produced a strong public backlash. And Obama and fellow Senate Democrats like Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, who were heavily in bed with the same industries they were supposed to be watching over, are making a public show of outrage. Dodd and Obama, respectively the number 1 and number 2 recipients of contributions from AIG, are busy pretending to be outraged by AIG's bonuses. Channeling Casablanca's Captain Renault, the epitome of civic hypocrisy, they proclaim, "We are shocked that there are bonuses being handed out here." As if Dodd's own amendment didn't specifically exempt executive bonuses, and as if Obama didn't sign a bill with that amendment in it.

Once again corruption and incompetence go at it, and corruption wins, followed by an incompetent coverup. But the public doesn't care about the coverup, or about the crime, so long as the people they elect solve the crisis they elected them to solve.

The media's scaremongering helped topple the Wall Street house of cards, and expose the corruption that Democrats themselves had promoted, from sub prime mortgages to pyramid schemes by their own major contributors. The media didn't stop spinning though until Obama, who had been closely tied to sub prime mortgages and was involved in a major real estate scandal that would ultimately help topple Governor Blagojevich, was in the White House.

But now Obama is in the White House and after passing a major stimulus package heavy on the pork that did nothing for the economy. After touting Caterpillar as an example of a company that would hire again, only to have Caterpillar turn around and fire over 2000 employees. After his own tax hikes are causing companies to flee the US and after his bailouts have elicited public outrage, Obama is still spinning frantically.

The Two Minute Hate campaign targeted first at Limbaugh, then at Wall Street commentators who questioned his tactics, and finally the Republican party as a whole-- crashed and burned despite media enthusiasm. The public as it turned out didn't care about Rush Limbaugh, and were not prepared to blame him for Obama's failures. Aside from the core of hard left wing activists, the American people were not interested in playing Obama's blame game. They just wanted results.

Heading to Leno to promote his economic plan, something no sitting President had ever done, Obama was once again falling back on his same old "like me, believe in me" spiel that had gotten him this far. But if a pity vote had helped get him elected, too many Americans have no pity to spare for the man whose wife boasts that the great thing about living in the White House is that when something breaks, right away it's replaced. Not when they're working two jobs to make ends meet.

Obama's economic plans are a failure. He did as his advisers advised, he seized the crisis, and the resulting pigfest at the mud pit revolted even many of his own supporters. Meanwhile more quietly, he was a failure abroad.

Brown's trip was a failure and an insult, whether calculated or not calculated. Europeans who had formerly been hopeful about Obama's victory, were turning cynical even in an article in the pages of the Obama boosting Time Magazine. Tariff wars are suddenly a possibility, with Mexico first in line. Meanwhile Russia was laughing at the inability of America's entire State Department to spell even one Russian word correctly-- even as Russia was pushing to create bases in the Western Hemisphere.

In the Middle East things were even worse. While Obama and his trolls were busy snubbing Israel, they also managed to snub virtually every American ally in the Muslim world. Amir Taheri lays out the disaster that Obama and his people have touched off better than anyone else could.

Notably, President Obama did not respond to greeting messages from America's Mideast allies until weeks after he'd entered the White House. The Iraqi leadership had to wait three weeks. Afghan President Hamid Karzai waited 40 days. Leaders of traditional allies such as Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, Jordan and Saudi Arabia didn't wait as long - but got only protocol calls devoid of political content.

Obama's emissaries to the region have made it clear that the new administration is keener on cultivating its foes than courting its friends.

Richard Holbrooke, the special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, spoke of his desire to engage the Taliban but cited "scheduling problems" in not meeting America's friends among Afghan and Pakistani elites. In Kabul, he made it all but clear that the new administration sees the Karzai presidency as part of the "Bush legacy." In Pakistan, he sent signals that Washington is not keen on supporting President Asif Ali Zardari's government.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton granted Lebanon's Prime Minister Fouad Siniora only a photo-op handshake during a conference on Gaza held in Egypt. Siniora, whose coalition government faces a crucial election in June, had hoped for a "convincing show of American support." Instead, he was cold-shouldered.

Concern that the US may be abandoning its allies has led to a number of panic moves. Last week, Saudi Arabia hosted a four-nation summit of Arab leaders that welcomed Syria back as a major player in regional politics. In exchange, the Syrians obtained a "right of observation" in Lebanon that they'll use to influence the outcome of that country's coming election.

In Iraq, concern about US retreat has divided the Kurds, Washington's strongest allies in that country. Massoud Barzani is trying to forge an alliance with Turkey to counterbalance Iran in the post-American era. Jalal Talabani (the other chief Kurdish leader) argues that, once the Americans leave, only Iran could protect the new Iraq against revenge-seeking Sunni Arab powers. Even Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, always suspicious of Tehran's intentions in Iraq, feels obliged to placate the mullahs by offering their protégé, Muqtada al-Sadr, a share of power.

In Pakistan, Zardari's opponents, convinced that the US no longer backs him, have launched a series of nationwide protests. Ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, under whose rule the Taliban conquered most of Afghanistan, is trying to stage a comeback by branding Zardari as "an American tool installed by Bush and abandoned by Obama."

Turkey, meanwhile, fears that Obama may strike a "grand bargain" with the mullahs, acknowledging Iran as the region's principal power. That would leave Turkey in the lurch - unable to join the European Union and marginalized in the Mideast. Those fears prompted Turkey's President Abdullah Gul to find an excuse to visit Tehran - where he became the first Turkish president ever to meet Iranian "Supreme Guide" Ali Khamenei.

Thanks to the perception that the United States is in retreat while the Islamic Republic is rising, Tehran in recent weeks has played host to a dozen presidents and prime ministers from Central Asia, the Caucasus and the Middle East. In every case, the idea is to make a deal with the Iranians before Obama makes a deal with them.

If you want it all boiled down, Obama has managed to do more damage to foreign policy in barely two months, than Bush had in 8 years. Obama's "Eyes Only for Iran" foreign policy has raised Iran's stature and power tenfold. Power Iran will use against the United States, even as we will find ourselves without any allies left.

Corruption or radical anti-americanism, the diagnosis may differ, but the end result is the same. Week after week, the Messiah has turned in one failure after another. Unable to even assemble a full cabinet, with nominee after nominee falling away due to tax problems, his failure is swiftly becoming a fact.

While Republicans may be taking an outward beating, partly due to incompetent leadership from Michael Steele, we only need to hang on through the storm. A storm that will have Obama in the center of it regardless of what he does. Now the first major anti-war rally is being planned and it specifically targets Obama, while we can expect the press to ignore it, it will begin hardening the break with many of Obama's old allies, even as he's running low on new ones.

Obama has a Democratic congress, which means he also has all the rope he needs to hang himself with. The backlash against his policies is already beginning, and the Messiah looks more hapless than ever as the greasepaint and sweat begins to run down his face.

There's nothing to be done about it. The Messiah is melting.

Hé, Hé!

"Democrats did something truly remarkable today – they voted to let AIG executives keep their taxpayer-financed bonuses.

Rep. Erik Paulsen and Rep. Leonard Lance offered a plan to direct the Secretary of the Treasury to implement a plan to recoup or stay the payment of AIG bonuses. To be clear, today’s vote was to stop the bonus payments on behalf of the American taxpayers.
Democrats voted down the bill.

Florida Republican Connie Mack called for Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to lose his job Wednesday, becoming the first Capitol Hill lawmaker to call for his ouster over AIG's using tens of millions of taxpayer dollars for executive bonuses."

Bullseye, Sultan:) You got him.

Obama's only been in office slightly over two months and already tolerance for his Eddie Haskel routine is growing pretty thin. What one commentator on TV said, is that he's afraid that people will blame his administration for the situation with AIG.

He's also hypersensitive about people calling him or even asking if he's a Socialist.

Like all narcissists Obama cares too much what others think about him. He's not like a ruthless dictator such as Hitler or Stalin.

That personality flaw will be Obama's downfall.

There's something in Proverbs about pride coming before a fall. Obama's going to experience that.

There's no way he'll get elected to a second term.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - BAD NEWS

Apparently, it's no longer enough for Uncle Sam to try to force us into taking care of our children Old Sam's way. Now the U.N. is stepping in, on an international scale, and what they are planning to force on families is insane, and MUST BE STOPPED.

If you have never been politically active, then YOU are part of the problem! Stand up, and look around you! We are no longer fighting for our rights, and they are being taken away. I am NOT exaggerating, and YES I'm mad. You should be too.

Take a look at this seemingly "innocent" commercial for children, about the The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child:

'All children will go to "nice" schools.' Do you know what the UN Convention defines a "nice school" as? It's not private schools, and it's not homeschool. It's public school, but with MORE secularism than ever. If Americans allow themselves to be enslaved under The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, then homeschool will be ILLEGAL in all 50 states, regardless of state laws - they will be overrode with federal and international laws. Christian private schools will no longer be allowed to teach Christianity, without equally teaching all other religions - this means there would be no more CHRISTIAN schools. Perhaps there will be in name, but not in content, subject matter or sanctification.

Did you do something to upset your child lately? Maybe when your child wanted to eat a box of chocolates right before bedtime, and you said "no." Look out! Under The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the child could decide to take you to court and claim that you are not feeding them enough. One child took his parents to court (and won!) because he thought it was cruel of his parents to take him to church three times a week - Sunday morning and evening, and Wednesday nights.
We need an amendment that stands up for PARENTAL RIGHTS. Take a look at this:

The above video states "if we all stand together and raise our voices, Congress will respond." That's right! Let's stand together for parental rights. The U.N. should not have a say in which school our children go to, or if we homeschool them. Nor is it any of the UN's business if our child does something wrong, and is therefore grounded for it.

If The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is ratified, then each child will have a list of rights, of which they will be taught to know by heart in the public schools that they will be attending by the choice of the UN and our government. Here are a few of those "rights:"

The right to privacy - Yep. If you suspect your teenager has pot stashed in his room, you would not be allowed to go in there and find out. Your child could end up dying from a drug problem, but you couldn't interfere, or it would have violated their "right to privacy."

Freedom of expression - If your toddler throws a temper tantrum, you are not allowed to do anything. If your teen starts yelling the 'f' word out the widow of the car while you are driving to the grocery store, you are not allowed to do anything. The parent would have no right to interfere with the child's "freedom of expression."

If your child decides to take home another child and go to their room and close the door and have sex, you cannot stop them, else you'd be violating their "freedom of expression" and "freedom of privacy." Do you think I'm exaggerating? I'm not...

Here are a few excerpts from HSLDA:

"Under Article 13, any attempts to prevent their children from interacting with material parents deem unacceptable is forbidden. Children are vested with a "freedom of expression" right, which is virtually absolute. No allowance is made for parental guidance. Section 1 declares a child's right to "seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of the child's choice."

In Article 14, children are guaranteed "freedom of thought, conscience and religion." Children have a legal right to object to all religious training. Alternatively, children may assert their right against parental objection to participate in the occult.

Article 15 declares "the right of the child to freedom of association." Parents could be prevented from forbidding their child to associate with people deemed to be objectionable companions. Under Article 15, children could claim a "fundamental" right to join gangs, cults, and racist organizations over parental objection.

Under Article 16, the "right to privacy" is granted to children. This UN sanctioned "privacy" would seemingly establish as the child's right to obtain an abortion without parental notice, the right to purchase and use contraceptives, and the right to pornography in the home.

Article 19 mandates the creation of an intensive bureaucracy for the purpose of "identification, reporting, referral, investigation, treatment, and follow-up" of parents who, in violation of the child's rights, treat their children negligently.

To insure State and U.N. control over their development, Article 7 requires all children must be immediately registered at birth."

The above excerpts are taken from the website. Please read the article in its entirety - Oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

Next, please read this .pdf file called "THE UN CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD - The Most Dangerous Attack on Parental Rights in the History of the United States." The information contained in this .pdf document is something that everyone needs to know.

As Americans, we need to take steps to make sure America does NOT ratify this treaty. 192 nations have already ratified this treaty. The "Holy See" Roman Catholic Vatican was one of the first ones to ratify it. I make specific mention of this, because I know a lot of Catholics who will NOT support CRC (Convention on the Rights of the Child). Therefore, devout Catholics must be made aware, that if they stand with Bible believing Christians in rising up against the CRC, then they are going against the Vatican's wishes. BENEDICT XVI supports the CRC. Roman Catholics, I pray you DO stand with us on this issue. America must not ratify the CRC! Regardless of what religion you are, please stand with me to preserve parental rights.

To date, the only nations who have not ratified CRC, are Somalia and the United States. U.S. citizens, we must NOT allow this treaty to be ratified!

Please take the time to read The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child for yourself. You can read it here.

Here is a list of "Children's Rights," being taught from a UK website.

From what I've read, it looks like Canada and the UK have signed onto this treaty, but have not agreed to every stipulation yet. I know homeschool is still being allowed in Canada and the UK, but I don't know how regulated it is, etc. Obama is pushing for the full ratification of the entire Convention for the U.S, which could make homeschool in the U.S. instantly outlawed. "Primary Education" in article 28 could be defined as government (public) school education only.

Please listen to this video, in which the woman explains this stuff so much better than my feeble attempt:

Steps to Take Action - Time to make a stand!

STEP ONE: Sign the parental rights petition at the website.

STEP TWO: Contact your state Representatives and Senators. If this is something you have little to no experience in, then consider joining the 10 in 2 program with . Here is a quote from their site, summing up the program:

"We need 10-and 2 volunteers who can enlist 10 people to do the following: sign the petition for the Amendment, sign 3 postcards to their Representative and Senators, and donate $1.
Then, we need those volunteers to recruit 2 more people to do the same thing."

I'm volunteering. Are you? Please join me; it'll only take a few minutes of your time, and it could make a BIG difference.

STEP THREE: If you have a website or blog, then please put up an article about the CRC and its atrocities hidden within. The media is not going to get the word out, so it's up to us. If you want to, you can just copy this article I've written and put it on your site - just get the word out! Email and call people as well. Let's do this.

Sultan: Regarding comments made in your prior article, I wish we could get to the bottom of Obama's birth, citizenship, eligibilty to be president issue.

When Obama was obsessed with VETTING Hillary and Bill Clinton for her potental SOS position, I was outraged! I kept asking: When is Obama going to be VETTED? If he had been vetted, and someone in the DNC found out he was actually ineligible to be president under our constitution, the information was knowingly SUPPRESSED. Who is in charge of the vetting process? Is it formal or does the DNC or RNC just accept the word of a candidate? Do candidates not have to file papers or applications to run for president? If so, Obama lied on these applications as he has been lying on school/college/ law school applications for many years. Many think his Harvard records are sealed because it says religion: MUSLIM, country of origin: KENYA.

In Dreams from my Father, Obama says he is the son of Barack Obama Sr., a Kenyan, but neglects to mention his father was a polygamist, who had 8 wives and may not have been married to Obama's mother). I found that out from reading "Obama Nation" by Jerome Corsi. Some think Obama is the son of Frank Marshall Davis, a civil rights activitist who was a friend of Obama's mother and who stayed involved in Obama Jr.'s life, while covering up the fact that he was Obama's real father.

Obama has many things he is hiding/covering up in his life for many reasons. If he is not actually eligible to be president, then everything he does as president is INVALID. The ramifications are enormous. I have read that people around the world know and accept the fact that Obama was not born in the U.S. and are surprised that Americans have been kept so uninformed about this important issue.

This might interest you:

At texas, a guy named Dave M., a great researcher on Obama’s case, wrote this yesterday:

“There is a small kernel of hope. Mossad fully understands Iran but according to Israel Insider, an Israel web news source of reasonable integrity, Mossad also knows that Obama was born in Mombassa Kenya and have the documentation to prove it”.

He further said that according to, Israel plans to reveal Obama’s ineligibility before they decide to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.

How accurate is all this, I don’t know… but there is no smoke without fire. I hope it is true and not a rumor. But it would make sense since an illegal POTUS has no power.

Great comment Susan! If someone in a position of authority can get to the truth about Obama's true citizenship he could be charged with perjury!

And if that happened possibly impeached. A long shot, I know, but definitely possible if someone can prove that he lied.

Lying about his citizenship has to be a more serious offense than Clinton denying his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.

Obama's lies are like onion skins. They need to be pulled back layer by layer.

To Chief Cook and Bottle Washer--

The UN is an evil...I don't even know what to call it. An entity? Regardless of what is actually is I can completely understand why the J Witnesses regarded the League of Nations and then the United Nations as an evil empire not unlike the Roman Empire.

"... he could be charged with perjury and if that happened possibly impeached." (Keli Ata)

According to Dr Edwin Vieira, PhD, J.D., it is not possible and this is why:

"Seventh: If Obama does become an usurper posturing as “the President,” Congress cannot even impeach him because, not being the actual President, he cannot be “removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” (see Article II, Section 4). In that case, some other public officials would have to arrest him—with physical force, if he would not go along quietly—in order to prevent him from continuing his imposture."

Keli Ata said...

In that case, instead of going after Obama for perjury, treason or bribery maybe the government would have to find a backdoor way to take him out of office.

After all, Al Capone was brought down because of his mob connections and crimes or violating prohibition but for something as simple as tax evasion.

Not that he was a government official but there are always backdoors:)

susan h said...

Keli: What if the "government" as you put it, was complicit in the lies and cover up of Obama? If Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi and others KNEW that Obama was not eligible under our constitution to be president and still made him the candidate of the democratic party, what are their crimes? What did the DNC know and when did they know it?

Keli Ata said...

Oops. I should have written he wasn't brought down by his mob connections but because of tax evasion.

"What if the "government" as you put it, was complicit in the lies and cover up of Obama?" (Susan)

I wonder if it was a government complicity or a government's ignorance and stupidity.

Dr. Orly Taitz travelled thru your country to educate your State's Representavives about this issue. Her surprise was that none of these Representatives understood the issue. They were convinced that the COLB was enough and that the 14th admendment made him legal. Now that they understand they are on her side.

Dr Edwin Vieira, PhD, J.D. in a radio interview, said that even in University, students of Constitutional law were not required to read the whole Constitution. So imagine how the rest of this nation are ignorant about it.

The solution: Educate Americans about their Constitution. They are clueless. This is why they call people who talks about this issue "tin foil hat" or "conspiracy theorists."

BTW, in a 5 audio's interview, Dr Orly Taitz reveals that Justice Scalia and Chief Justice Roberts told her that they have never heard of all those lawsuits going to the Courts. You can listen to them at:

It's finally becoming clear to the rest of the world, if not to Obamessiah's blind sycophantic followers, that Obamessiah is the Anti-Messiah. They should have listened to the truth before they elected this sham president and his stooge VP.

Robert said...

If the Mossad indeed has the truth about Obama, and he is indeed ineligible to be President of the U.S., then every executive order he has signed is void, every bill he has signed should be void, or voidable, and Joe Biden is the real President.

On another note, reading the damage Obama has caused in the Middle East with his recognition of Iran, I now suspect that if the U.S. indeed gets into a major war around the end of Elliot social mood cycle wave c as predicted, it will be with Iran. We'll see the end of cycle wave c whenever the stock market (a.k.a. the mood meter) reaches its ultimate low. We darn well better get someone with moral clarity into office as President in 2013, like Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, or Fred Thompson. Chances are also good that the Republicans will then also be credited with the policies that create an eventual recovery, and the Leftist Democrats discredited for generations, hopefully forever.

ytba said...

CORRECTION you should make...

"...but when Palin talked about seeing "Alaska" [should read "Russia"] from her house, it was transformed into an ongoing taunt."

And I didn't think she meant from her house, but from Alaska. I thought she said, "I can even see it from there." which I took to mean from someplace in the state. Whatever. The MSM are petty childish concrete thinkers. It's a pathology, what can I say.
