The Potemkin President.
This president and his rise to power will be chewed over and spat out by generations of writers… left, right and in the mushy middle. Historians will not treat Barack Obama kindly. Nothing with this ‘man’ (as much as it slays me to refer to him as such… in the company of real men he wouldn’t be given the time of day) is as it seems. He is as illusory as the will-o’-the-wisp over a southern swamp. He could put any carny barker to shame with his meaningless, high-flown rhetoric.
As a side note, Dee and I just celebrated our 600th publication last week. It’s the first time I’ve given more than a cursory examination to our archives. I don’t claim to be prescient, however, going clear back to the beginning of this column it’s really spooky how accurately I described Barack Hussein Obama and his political agenda. I pegged him as a Marxist ideologue from day one. But then, I didn’t allow the hype to sway me. At best, as I said at the time, we should reserve judgment, since at that time he was still selling himself as a moderate to the boobs.
The Potemkin was a Russian battleship built in 1898, glorified in Bolshevik and, later, communist literature in Stalinist Russia as the exemplar of revolutionary zeal, when the Potemkin’s crew revolted against their Tsarist officers in 1905. Later, the name Potemkin was pinned to idyllic, rural Russian villages which were set up for the sole purpose of bamboozling moon-faced liberals into believing the ‘glories’ of communism and the various ‘five year plans’ that failed so miserably. Typically, after the boobs left, the ‘villagers’ were stripped of their bucolic finery and sent back out into the collective farms where life was generally far worse than under the Tsars. Millions of people died at the hands of this cruel and heartless regime.
Barack Obama has created a Potemkin economy, where nothing is as it is portrayed by the fifth columnists of his statist mainstream media. While moving to the left as quickly as he can, his slavish apologists run interference for him at every turn. The Obama regime is in its death throes… but like any venomous serpent thrashing its life away, none the less dangerous for it.
Americans are fully awake and are preparing to remove Mr Hussein in 2012. Nothing could be more indicative of what’s coming down the pike than the victory of Republican Bob Turner over his liberal opponent in New York’s District Nine, Anthony Wiener’s former district, in the east coast’s ‘belly of the beast’. It wasn’t even close. Couple that to the apparent loss of much of the Jewish vote and it’s a harbinger of things to come.
Don’t let up on the pressure for an instant. It’s going to be the American Patriot Movement which is going to sweep these Marxists from power forever, and it can’t come one second too soon.
