All over the nation, people are waking up to the many riddles and ironies of the Obama Administration. What we’re seeing is the opposite of leadership. With leadership, you watch the person’s moves and listen to the words, and wind up inspired, comforted or, at the very least, nodding your head in understanding.
But with this President, the hypocrisy, irony and pretense are so tangible, you don’t have any of those responses. You frown, you wince, you laugh sarcastically, and sometimes, even a little bit of you-know-what might rise in your throat.
America is not a game. But it sure feels like we’re being played. This is not fun to see. But we must see it, and act to stop as much of it as we can.
What’s going on is like a great, big board game – Obama Bingo. As time goes on, we see more and more who this President is. And that’s a good thing. Recent events have caused us to put a lot of new markers on the squares:
O . . . hhh, brother, can you believe the nerve of the Administration pushing for expanded background checks as gun control?
As if the utter lack of a legitimate background check on our President isn’t a glaring omission, with the obviously forged birth certificate and so many other questionable anomalies and inconsistencies in his dysfunctional track record?
As if background checks would have stopped any of the recent high-profile shooters – Tucson, Aurora, Sandy Hook, etc. — who stole other people’s legally-purchased firearms to do their dirty deeds. And by the way, that’s how lots of criminals get guns: through theft, which, last we heard, is already against the law. So what good would it do to add yet another law for the bad guys to ignore?
Most hypocritical of all, as if the very heart of the Obama Administration’s Fast and Furious gun-running scandal did not center on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms actually using straw purchases to let American-bought guns flow into the horrible Mexican Drug War and make it worse, not better?
The feds already know you can’t stop proxy gun purchases meant for criminal activity. They have figured, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. So they cheat. But they don’t want their bosses – the American citizenry – to be able to do the same thing.
Yet the guns our government has straw-bought with our tax dollars have contributed to some of the 65,000 killings in that drug war estimated by the Mexican government (Wall Street Journal Online), including border patrol agent Brian Terry. Kind of makes the stats about “assault” rifles – fewer than 400 deaths per year across the U.S. – pale in comparison, eh?
Of course, the Obama Administration says that if you cherish and respect the Second Amendment, it’s because you’re racist. But gee: almost all of those 65,000 people killed in the Mexican drug war that Obama’s attorney general Eric Holder’s department is helping foment had brown skin. So, really: who’s the racist?
B . . . ombings are more heinous and frightening than gunshots, because they are sneaky and cowardly, behind the victims’ backs. Considering that President Obama got his political start in the living room of a terrorist bomber, William Ayers, it’s pretty ironic to see Obama pontificating about bringing the Boston Marathon Massacre bombers to justice under the full extent of the law, blah, blah, blah.
The Boston bombing was eerily reminiscent of Islamic jihad bombings in Israel, Indonesia and so many other places around the world . . . but our President could barely even eke out the word “terrorism” ‘til that truth was long overdue from his lips.
Doing things behind people’s backs that will hurt them or kill them is despicable, but bombers do it . . . and so has the Obama Administration. Remember how they wouldn’t let anybody actually read and study the Obamacare legislation? That has gone off like a bomb in our economy, disrupting businesses, costing people their jobs, and frightening countless sick and elderly people.
How about the incredible number of Executive Orders that President Obama has signed, in defiance of the will of the people as expressed by duly-legislated Congressional votes? That’s going behind Congress’ back, and the shrapnel hits all of us.
A . . . chilling hypocrisy is the way President Obama claims to be a Christian and a constitutional expert, yet inexplicably says and does the opposite of what Christians and constitutional experts are supposed to say and do.
First off, Christians honor God and God’s Ten Commandments. One of those is: no adultery. Adultery is any kind of sex outside of holy matrimony – which, duhh, consists of one man and one woman. But watch Obama come out in favor of same-sex mock marriage. Hunh? Homosexual behavior is clearly marked as a wrongful, evil “abomination” in God’s Word; the model of male-female covenant marriage is clearly laid out from Genesis through Revelation. Somehow, Obama thinks he has the right to “correct” and overrule the Bible. Does a solid, humble, reverent Christian do that?
Then again, Obama has displayed his Biblical ignorance consistently, making public pronouncements that ridicule the rules of Leviticus and demonstrate clearly that Obama doesn’t understand what Jesus did for us, in establishing salvation through grace and faith in Him.
And what Christian orders Christian symbols, which have meant so much to so many, covered up in places where they are natural, such as Georgetown and Notre Dame universities, to avoid “offending” people? WHAT people? You mean, like the people buried under the crosses in Arlington National Cemetery, and their proud and grieving descendants?!? True Christians love those symbols. Hunhh??
As for standing up for God’s moral law, we watched Obama lavish support and praise on the law student, Sandra Fluke, who disgraced herself and the reputations of women in this country so thoroughly by demanding that her Catholic university and other decent, God-fearing employers pay for birth control for unmarried people like her, who can’t afford to have “safe” fornication – though free and highly-subsidized birth control was later revealed to be readily available within blocks of the campus. We used to call morally aberrant people like Fluke “libertines” and much worse names, but now Obama calls them heroes?!? And he’s supposed to be a Christian? And Obama managed to ash-can any semblance of regard for the First Amendment right to freedom of religious expression for all those employers. Not exactly a bingo for someone who claims to understand our Constitution so well.
And anyway, what’s more moral, Christian and Constitutional than standing up for God’s Commandment, “Thou shalt not kill”? Yet Obama thinks murdering people via drone, and allowing for 55 million abortions in this country, are both fine ideas. He says abortion would be his go-to solution if one of his daughters should wind up with an unwanted pregnancy. His chief legal officer, attorney general Eric Holder, the only sitting Cabinet member in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress, is in trouble with government ethics enforcers for failing to disclose the fact that his wife makes money by co-owning a building in Georgia where a longtime abortion “doctor,” Tyrone Cecil Malloy, is under indictment for billing the American taxpayer through Medicaid for $380,000 worth of phony ultrasounds that never happened, and for illegal abortions that didn’t qualify for Medicaid reimbursement. So if Holder’s wife was the landlord where this longtime, illegal activity was going on, what does that make her?!?
Even worse, we have the spectacle of Obama’s silence and indifference about the abortion “doctor,” in Philadelphia, Kermit Gosnell, who has been responsible for something like 20,000 murders through his sick and strange abortion “practice” over the years. The vast majority of his patients were poor, minority women and their unborn children, largely more advanced, gestationally, than abortion laws allow. His macabre display of baby body parts reveals him as a sadist and the worst mass murderer in American history. Killing 20,000 minority persons – that’s not worthy of rebuke from a President who calls himself a Christian and has repeatedly decried violence and racism?
M . . . aybe it’s asking too much, but what kind of President lavishes sympathy on a teen thug like Trayvon Martin before the evidence was known about the circumstances of his death, and flies to Tucson to cry out for sympathy and justice for the 9-year-old girl killed by Jared Loughner . . . yet offers only cold indifference to the American border patrol agent killed in the line of duty with U.S. government-purchased guns, and turns away from the cries for help of our American ambassador in Benghazi and the brave SEALs attempting to protect him?
And remember the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, who is black, by the local Cambridge, Mass., cop, who is white, after a local witness had reported an apparent burglary in process, which eventually resulted in the “beer summit” at the White House? What kind of a constitutional “expert,” as Obama is supposed to be, rushes to comment judgmentally about an arrest and criminal case with his own opinion of what happened – in his opinion, it was an example of “racial profiling,” even though the facts show that it wasn’t — ignoring the “innocent until proven guilty” principle of American jurisprudence?
And how does that jump-to-judgment action compare with how Obama is now midwifing the convenient and extremely rare deportation of Saudi royal family member Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, a recent “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon Massacre, meeting with a Saudi prince, and meddling in the criminal case, to help the Saudi royal family “save face”? Funny how that’s the opposite – jumping to a judgment of innocence in the case of a foreign national with direct family ties to senior members of our mortal enemy, the al-Qaida terrorist cabal . . . while immediately assuming the white American police officer in the “beer summit” case was guilty of racial profiling.
And we thought justice was supposed to be blind. Hunhhh?
A . . . nother real head-scratcher is how we see the Obama Administration pushing to ignore the lawlessness of 11 million illegal aliens in this country, who are exploiting our good-will subsidies, committing crimes ‘way out of proportion for their numbers, and flaunting our laws . . . refusing to massively deport these cheaters who are hurting everybody else in flagrant violation of our constitutional principles about the rule of law, not men, in this country, and the American ideal of self-reliance and law-abiding goodness. . .
. . . while at the same time, the Obama Administration is putting the hammer down on one decent, idealistic family that the Department of Homeland Security wants to deport against their will. In 2008, the family of Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their six children fled from Germany to Tennessee. They asked for political asylum so that they could homeschool their children here.
In Germany, the fascists have fixed it so that you have to teach the government’s curriculum in both public and private schools. You can’t homeschool. The Romeikes found that the curriculum denigrated Christian values. But if they stayed in that country and homeschooled, their children would likely be confiscated by the government social services Gestapo and the parents jailed. An American federal judge ruled that they deserved political asylum, but Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is appealing that ruling, saying there are no religious and parental liberties in the United States that can checkmate fascism, and we can’t give them sanctuary.
So the law-breaking illegal aliens can stay . . . but the nice, God-fearing family has to go. Hunhhh?
Is your Obama Bingo game board filled by now? Hard to see how it couldn’t be. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that we can win this game, simply by letting the Obama Administration implode, providing contrast after contrast with how we want things to be vs. how they want things to be. All we have to do is point it out effectively, and we win.
Even though the Boston Marathon Massacre and the West, Texas, explosion and fire were both horrible, they emphasized the American Way: we saw everyday Americans run toward the bombing and fire/explosion victims in sacrificial love and concern . . . in stark contrast to the despicable indifference shown by President Obama and his Secretary of State Hillary “What Difference Does It Make?” Clinton to the cries for help of our American ambassador in Benghazi and the 3 brave SEALs attempting to protect him. Now, we see: Obama and his friends ain’t “us.”
We’ve seen everyday Americans respond to the Administration’s gun control threats by arming themselves in vastly greater numbers than they have since the days of the Revolutionary War – surely an unintended consequence of the Obama cartel’s attempt to herd us as defenseless sheep into folds not of our own making or desire. Americans are for liberty – not for being “played” as fools.
We’ve seen everyday American parents protesting the fact that the “stimulus” money that didn’t stimulate either businesses or schools is now being used to grease the skids for nationalization of many of our businesses, and certainly of our schools. Parents and taxpayers are protesting the lousy, dumbed-down, nationalized Common Core and its unconscionable 4th Amendment violations perpetrated by the data mining and psychological intel-gathering of vulnerable schoolchildren. The Obama Administration is weaving this snare through newly-co-opted federal education “assessments” that force the nationalized curriculum on our schools. These “assessments” are deceitfully providing the data for Red Chinese-style dangans – political portfolios – on every person and family in the United States, using the kids’ innocently-provided responses to squeal on all kinds of details about their families, and to reveal exactly how those kids and their families can be squeezed politically or manipulated into the State’s “traces.” The databases can be used for political manipulation, just the way the Obamoids’ proposed gun registration databanks can be used. But this totally un-American micromanaging control scheme needs to be stopped. And growing numbers of people are joining the fight.
All of these hypocrisies and ironies! It feels like a glass of ice water has been thrown in our faces. But that’s good.
Now we’re awake. Now we’re aroused. Now we’re going to get in the game . . . turn the tables . . . and win America back from the brink.
