Michelle Obama at the Oscars:
Deconstructing America

PJ Media, by Jeanette Pryor

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/28/2013 2:19:41 PM

In his often-bizarre but oh-so-brilliant analysis of the disastrous Star Wars prequels, Mike Stoklasa of Red Letter Media (video embedded below) commented on the opening sequence of A New Hope: Compare this fecal matter [the Phantom Menace plot] to the opening of the original Star Wars. You see, a guy named William Shakesman once said, “Brevity is the soul of wit.” (Snip)Having Michelle Obama, first lady of the United States, present an Academy Award was such a brilliant strategy for advancing the post-structuralist deconstruction of America, even the Obamas themselves probably didn’t realize how genius it was.

Comments:
Spoiler: The writer speaks of Mooch´s constant search for celebrity and refers to her husband as the "Golfing Marxist". This ain´t no puff piece. But it is well reasoned and worth a read.

Woohoo! Pryor is on a roll. Who in the White House will be telling her she´ll regret this?

Lady “Never-Been-Proud-of My-Country” communicated ultimately that America herself is nothing but a deception, another tripping, stumbling pretender. Viewers also conclude that those who lead the nation perform the same function as those who mass produce make-believe for consumption. By mixing the symbol of our government with those of Hollywood, the greatest nation in history becomes internally associated with what is most flimsy and ephemeral in our culture; America too should bask but a moment in glory before making way for the next big thing.

Thwap!

There is *no* aspect of the term ´narcissism´ that the Obamas do not comprehend completely and demonstrate ad nauseum.

This is one ´cult personality´ family that will *never* allow itself to be out of the public eye for more than 30 seconds...

...unless it´s to actually ´answer questions´ or govern the country in any manner other than ´self serving´.

Preparing for her Senate run, and then President Moo-chelle.

Let´s see -- 8 years of PIAPS, and Moo-chelle should be just about ready for her coronation.

If there is anything left of this once glorious republic, that should be the final nail in the coffin...

The only flaw in this very well reasoned article is a back-handed slap at Nancy Reagan. If anyone has a right to be in the audience at the Oscars, it would her: several decent female lead roles, nearly 10 years representing the interests of her fellow actors on the Screen Actors Guild board. And she is the widow of a seven-time SAG president, who spearheaded the negotiations for TV and film residuals that benefit the average working actor/actress the most.

But Nancy would never be up there presenting, because she understands the difference in being First Lady (representing the US, and as the writer stated, ´transparency and truth´), a President´s widow, and her short stay in Fantasyland (celebrity and make-believe) and would not cross that barrier.

Can this be a Weekend Must-Read? There is a major thought breakthrough on why this Moochelle appearance was so disconcerting, and how effective this deliberate breaching of truth and fantasy by the Obamalinis has become.

Mrs. Pryor says we must see that this is a war on our souls and our ´national´ identity - our citizens are being manipulated by ´frequent violation of the boundaries between our individual lives and the state.´ There are no lines, no rules, limitations or boundaries that the state cannot violate. It is all for our own good according to the Marxists & Utopian meddlers. The individual is owned & controlled by the the state because he is too stupid & uneducated to take decisions of his own. The movies are fantasy yet have powerful influence in shaping public opinion about history & ideas. Michelle Obama has no truth in her - she is a construct. The media protect her from her faux pas - like the comment about guns on GMA the other day.

Friends of Nancy Davis Reagan knew she was not unhappy to move on from Hollywood. She ended up a West Coast socialite and wife of the governor and then the president. Her Hollywood career was never a big deal. Nor was his. Their support did not come from Hollywood, but from a much larger corporate and political arena.

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

People who have accounts on the enrollment website for President Barack Obama´s signature health care law are being told to change their passwords following an administration-wide review of the government´s vulnerability to the confounding Heartbleed Internet security flaw. Senior administration officials said there is no indication that the HealthCare.gov site has been compromised and the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. The government´s Heartbleed review is ongoing, the officials said, and users of other websites may also be told to change their passwords in the coming days, including those with accounts on the popular

NASHPORT, Ohio – A couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart. Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, died at 92 on April 12. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning. The couple´s eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart(Snip)They remained deeply in love until the very end, even eating breakfast together while holding hands, said their daughter, Linda Cody.

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last? These are the questions we just

AUSTIN — Documents related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency, Travis County officials say. It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection with its look into tollway agency operations. The Travis County district attorney’s office said last month that details from its review of a 2012 complaint that a rival filed about Davis’ legal and political activities were “the subject of an open investigation” by the

Jindo, South Korea -- A passenger describes women screaming in the darkness. A father learns his child is trapped. A son, fearing death, tells his mother he loves her. Investigators haven´t said what caused a South Korean ferry boat carrying hundreds of passengers to capsize on Wednesday. But as rescuers searched frigid waters for nearly 300 missing people, text messages purporting to be from missing passengers surfaced, describing the harrowing moments after the ferry started to roll.(Snip) On Thursday, the semi-official Yonhap News Agency reported that police now believe the messages supposedly sent after the ferry sank were fake.

A Nebraska toddler had his eye on the prize when he slipped out of his home and wound up inside a claw machine at a nearby arcade. Ashley Ireland had called police and begun a frantic search for her son, Kael, after he went missing from her apartment on Monday afternoon. The three-year-old had managed to open the front door and walk to the nearby amusement arcade, where he was found playing with stuffed toys inside one of the machines. Scroll down for video Kael´s antics had caught the attention of a group of customers in Madsen´s Bowling and Billiards in Lincoln, who

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
