To know Obama, look to the women in his life

I am throughly impressed with some of the articles recently written identifying the Obama phenomenon for the fraud it is, in beautiful plain English.

Someone writing under the pseudonym 'Spengler' for the Asia Times writes Obama's women reveal his secret. This is without a doubt, a must read. Spengler tells you to look to Obama’s mom and wife for clues to his real motivations. Here are some choice quotes:

"Cherchez la femme," advised Alexander Dumas in: "When you want to uncover an unspecified secret, look for the woman." In the case of Barack Obama, we have two: his late mother, the went-native anthropologist Ann Dunham, and his rancorous wife Michelle. Obama's women reveal his secret: he hates America


Obama profiles Americans the way anthropologists interact with primitive peoples. He holds his own view in reserve and emphatically draws out the feelings of others; that is how friends and colleagues describe his modus operandi since his days at the Harvard Law Review, through his years as a community activist in Chicago, and in national politics. Anthropologists, though, proceed from resentment against the devouring culture of America and sympathy with the endangered cultures of the primitive world. Obama inverts the anthropological model: he applies the tools of cultural manipulation out of resentment against America.


There is nothing mysterious about Obama's methods. "A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is," wrote Karl Krauss. Americans are the world's biggest suckers, and laugh at this weakness in their popular culture.

There is so much more in this one. Please read it all.

Thomas Sowell: Dangerous demagoguery

Another must read (from a long line of must reads) from Thomas Sowell.
"Many people find it thrilling that the mantra of "change" is ringing out across the land during this election year. But let's do what the politicians hope that we will never do — stop and think."

Oh, I love Thomas Sowell. I'm not sure I've ever heard him say something I've disagreed with.

Listen to him in 1980 addressing the Fairmount Conference in San Francisco (still so prescient today):

Make sure and buy his memoir, A Man of Letters

Religous nut-job of the day (The Obama Messiah Watch Continues)

I mean it -- I hope to see a lot more of this ridiculousness over the next few months. People like this just might convince enough people to steer clear from the Messiah. Watch this 60's throwback...laugh at her...and then weep for her and her cause.

BTW -- there is a new Facebook group dedicated to Obama as Messiah. Join it if you can.

Laughing at the Obama cultists

It is very encouraging to see so many people recognizing and starting to make fun of the Obama cult. This is the greatest attempt thus far:
Is Barack Obama the Messiah
h/t: instapundit

Read the entire site for the alternating chills and laughs.

It is funny to see the so-called secular leftists embracing religion so fervently. It pretty much blows a hole in Bill O'Reilly's thesis - the secular left was never secular.

Obama is a Messiah for the 21st century

Props to Jake Tapper at ABC for being brave enough to call Obama's campaign for what it really is -- a religion. Every time I see an Obama self-lauding campaign speech in which he says nothing except for how great the Obama movement is, I get chills in the same way I would if I was watching a fire and brimstone Southern Baptist stumping on a pulpit before millions of true believers. Get to someone's soul and you control their brain.

He quotes one Obama supporter who is starting to get freaked out:
Describing various encounters with Obama supporters, she writes, "Excuse me, but this sounds more like a cult than a political campaign. The language used here is the language of evangelical Christianity – the Obama volunteers speak of 'coming to Obama' in the same way born-again Christians talk about 'coming to Jesus.'

Tapper also refers to a Joe Klein piece titled "Inspiration vs. Substance":
"That is not just maddeningly vague but also disingenuous: the campaign is entirely about Obama and his ability to inspire. Rather than focusing on any specific issue or cause — other than an amorphous desire for change — the message is becoming dangerously self-referential. The Obama campaign all too often is about how wonderful the Obama campaign is. “

I've noted many times how empty Obama's rhetoric actually is. Even the NY Times is under his spell. I must say it now -- this man is dangerous.

Update: Check out this image direct from Obama's homepage!!!!

Van Jones -- Another Crook hanging around Davos


Hey Van -- how can we make the world a better place?
"Green collar jobs for 'working people'"

"Green pathways out of poverty"

"A green wave that can lift all boats"

"We need to connect the people who most need work with the work that most needs to be done."

Listen to him --- listen to the lack of conviction in his voice -- the tepidness of his message. He has no clue what the words coming out his mouth actually mean and he knows it.

Wow - Bono is annoying

Listen to this "rock star."

Bono's Remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast:
Please join me in praying that I don't say something we'll all regret.

That was for the FCC.

If you're wondering what I'm doing here, at a prayer breakfast, well, so am I. I'm certainly not here as a man of the cloth, unless that cloth is leather. It's certainly not because I'm a rock star. Which leaves one possible explanation: I'm here because I've got a messianic complex.

Yes, it's true. And for anyone who knows me, it's hardly a revelation.

Well, I'm the first to admit that there's something unnatural… something unseemly… about rock stars mounting the pulpit and preaching at presidents, and then disappearing to their villas in the South of France. Talk about a fish out of water.
It was weird enough when Jesse Helms showed up at a U2 concert… but this is really weird, isn't it?

Look at this empty sack of shit talking to a webcam in Davos. He says absolutely nothing in the most sanctimonious way possible. Nothing.

"Hello, my name is Bono and I'm a rock star....sort of."

While Bono's shtick is grating on the senses, I do think the fat guy chomping on his lunch in the background is a funny counter-point.

William J. Cole gets paid to write this shit

Take a look: World Captivated by US Presidential Race

Who the hell is this guy, William J. Cole of the Associated Press? Isn't this more like a blog post that belongs on Daily Kos?

Can we re-title this "William J. Cole loves Obama," please? This is not news -- it is so poorly written, it is almost not even pretending to be news. Every paragraph stinks. Every one of them.

"The idea since the country's founding—'You can't become president if you're not a white man'—has already been destroyed," the Mainichi newspaper said in an editorial.

"Nobody in Europe ever took Bill Clinton's problems in office seriously," said Patrick Dunleavy, a political scientist at the London School of Economics. "Nobody could ever understand why Americans were so upset. Bill Clinton was always a fantastic presence in Europe."

"People all around the world are pretty worried," he said. "They want a president who will restore a kind of U.S. legitimacy in the world."
