There has probably never been a more mysterious man to occupy the White House than Barack H. Obama. A man, none of us really know. And he doesn't want us to know him, apparently afraid of what we might find there. Even the people that have been closest to him, other politicians to his person physician, depict a distance that none of them could breach. He extends this chilliness to supporters and political allies much to their chagrin. Behinds the scenes, he and his wife Michele are notorious for snubbing the very people that helped launched them to the oval office: Oprah Wintry, the Kennedy clan, and the wealthy upperclass blacks of Chicago, among many others.
Sometimes it seems like there are two different men here. There is the narcissistic, prickish, thin-skinned, duplicitous Barack getting even with his enemies Chicago-style, doing it all with a charming toothy grin as he twists the knife. He schemes about remaking America into a country most American's don't want or relate to. Then there is the other Barack, the one that is a total goof in public, fuzzy headed, bordering on dementia. Such as when he called a Navy corpsman a "corpse man," or signs a guest book with the wrong year, or can't remember his daughter age in a speech. A man that can't get a visiting city's name right, a man that has traveled through 57 states, a man who bows to other world leaders as if they are his superiors. He seems befuddled at state dinners and embarrasses himself by not following protocol as if he doesn't know what to do, how to act, or has little in the way of manners for international gatherings. A prime example: Toasting Queen Elizabeth while the British national anthem played. In an embarrassing episode, he finally had to sit down and shut-up till the music stopped playing and try a reboot. Wasn't there a staffer there to tell him about the timing and proper manners?
So here is a man so two-sided, it's hard to tell who's who. Part brilliant and part stupid; a great campaigner but incompetent at governance; an articulate orator, but a poor communicator; a Noble Peace Prize winner, with a kill list, a leader with no leadership skills or for that matter, a compunction to lead.
Campaigning and Governance
Campaigning is his thing. It's his gift. He's awesome at it. But when it comes to the details of being a leader and guiding legislation along, the contacting of key Congressmen or Senators and sweet talking them, guilt tripping, arm twisting, handing out gifts in exchange for support. Obama does none of this. He acts above the fray, which often leads to failure. There is a lot more legislation he could have gotten passed and signed into law if he had made these efforts.
This stance follows him to the international scene as well. An example was his canceling a meeting with Russian leader Validmir Putin over the Stowden affair. He could have gone, showed his displeasure with Putin for thumbing his nose and stood him up at a press conference. But Obama played the cowardly lion and tucked tail. One could never image a Reagan or Clinton doing such a thing. Confrontation is not his way. Kim Zigfeld at American Thinker put it succinctly:
"As Hitler could not have wished for better than Chamberlain, Putin could not have dreamed of more than Obama. The president won't make the highest American values part of his relationship with Russia, maybe because he doesn't share them, and he won't stand up for American values and honor by making Putin pay dearly for crossing them, maybe because he doesn't care about them."
And there you have it. The American traditions and ideals most Americans cherish, Obama doesn't believe in. As Ed Klein said of Obama in his book, The Amateur, Obama is out to save America from itself. He thinks America has lost its way and needs to remodeled into a socialist utopia, which of course, has never worked anywhere that it has been tried.
Barack Obama and the Flat Earth Society
One of the early controversies of Barack Obama's presidency had to be the question of his citizenship. It's a mirky area and too long and drawn out to go into all of the details here. Check out Jerome Corisi's well sourced book, Where is the Birth Certificate? to explore this topic in greater detail. Basically, since Obama delayed releasing his long form birth certificate, and apparently no one running for president has to show his or her proof of citizenship, the issue gained momentum with every passing day. It looked suspicious to spend millions of dollars to keep it sealed, which is still is along with a host of other files. No, those released birth certificates are fake and I don't care what those shills over at Snopes say, especially the last release, which is revealed not be a scanned document but a nine-layer Photoshop digital file.) In fact Obama early on set up a PAC to raise money to fend off all challenges which are handled by the Perkins Coie law firm. Over three million dollars and counting.
Who does something like this? Why is such simple information withheld from public release? What is there he doesn't want us to know? Since then, there are issues with his SSN and selective service registration and no educational, health, or passport records have ever been released.
Another issue is the number of lawsuits have been filed trying to determine what was his origin of birth and the courts have decided that these suits have no standing. In other words, they are not going to touch it. It's tainted with plague. Congress will not make a move, nor will the Supreme Court. Justice Clarence Thomas said to a sub-committee of the Congress that they were evading the eligibility issue but never said why. They are all in on it.
Being a seeker of the truth, I have been long disappointed that the chief critics of Obama, namely conservative talk radio did not run with this. If Limbaugh, Hannity, Levine, Beck, and many others had pursued this issue, such as Joseph Farah and Jerome Corsi did over at WND.com, they could have gotten some real traction on this issue. Instead, by holding back, they allowed Obama's supporters in the media--and they are legion--to control how this issue was defined.
Now anybody that doubts Obama's citizenship is called a Birther and treated as a member of the Flat Earth Society. It's fringe stuff. Ironic, considering there is no real documentary proof that Obama was born in the United States and so many close to him have claimed birth in Kenya. That would include his paternal grandmother, the Kenyan ambassador Peter Ogego, and even Obama's wife Michelle, in several public speeches. Obama in his early promo literature also mentioned being Kenyan born. Senior Elections clerk Tim Adams had access to state birth records and said that there was no birth certificate for Barack Obama. And the list goes on and on...
If Barack Obama is not a legitimate US citizen, then it's likely impossible for most people to fathom a conspiracy this vast, this illegal, that could actually happen. The legal checks and balances are supposed to prevent something like this from happening. It would mean the government is a criminal enterprise, lost from the will of the People.
Another thing to consider if this happened, there are a lot of helpers here to cover up a crime. So don't be bewildered by the vastness of an operation like this. Besides Obama's friends in the mainstream media are made up of a host of liberal websites, bloggers, cable news networks and to a certain extent, even the conservative media (Fox, talk radio) to help in burying the issue as well.
Controlling The Puppet
There odds are that Barack Obama was not born in this country. In many ways what defines a "natural born" American citizen can get very murky. It's not clearly defined in the Constitution. Sen. John McCain had to be investigated but the Senate to determine if he was eligible to run in 2008.
Never the less, what better way to control a man if you have a flaw, or any flaw in his character, lifestyle, etc, over him? There are plenty of real-life examples of this; just read Robert Caro's bio's of Lyndon Johnson and how he called in his "cards." Even better, watch the political drama, House of Cards, to see this sort of thing in action. Actor Kevin Spacey plays the character of Frank Underwood, a conniving congressman manipulating people and events. And in the story he finds the perfect man to control––another congressman who gets in trouble with a hooker and Frank fixes and covers up the crime for him. The man is now beholding to him. Then Frank forces this poor guy into all kinds of things, eventually running him for governor.
You don't run the best man for the job...you run the best man you can control for the job. That's Politics 101.
If Obama is not a citizen of the Untied States and has other proclivities (i.e., drug addiction, heath issues, homosexuality, etc.) then this is a man that the rich and powerful would love to run. He has enough fraud in his character and past to keep him on a tight leash. No wonder others have to supply millions of dollars to fend of all legal challenges he faces.
Barack Obama has been called a puppet. He's been called out for being little interested in the job. A man who starts his day at 10:30 AM, has a few meetings and calls it day. If one can spend 5 hours or more playing golf, then here is man with little to do. And you would think the job of president would fill all of one's waking hours. But not this man. Maybe because all the heavy lifting is being done by others? All Barack has to do in that case, is play president on TV.
The First Act Is The Last Act
Barack Obama's first official act as president which was to sign Executive Order #13489 sealing up his files. That includes the files of the vice president as well. (It is unclear to me what records are sealed––his documents as president or his past life records? Colleges, health, travel, and so on?) Not bad coming from a man who promised the most open Administration in history.
So much for that.
