Obama´s Fall from Grace
American Thinker, by J.R. Dunn

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/17/2013 6:31:55 AM

Reportage of last week´s Nelson Mandela funeral reveals clearly enough that President Obama has reached the point in his tenure where everything ceases to go right -- when even the most serious and determined efforts deteriorate into a hash, or worse, a joke. This happens to everyone in public life eventually, politicians above all. The original attraction wears thin, flaws appear more prominently, styles and opinions change. There is little the individual can do to avoid this.(snip)The Mandela funeral shows that Obama is deep into this phase of his career, and has landed on his head.

I´ll believe a fall from grace when I see it. Once again, its obvious the advantage the Repubs could have if they pressed the Obamacare issue and hammered it home. But they won´t. Heck, they just agreed to fund it for two years and fast-track taxes.

It would be nice if we had an opposition party that would help along a fall from grace.

I would be looking forward to Obama´s "fall from grace" except for one very important thing. That fall from grace is going to be accompanied by a LOT of pain and suffering for people throughout the world as China goes to war with its neighbors and Iran uses its nuclear bomb. That is not even discussing the lesser pain caused by the destruction of America´s health care system.

I, for one, don´t expect the Marxist mafia media, the over educated eggheads in academia, and the lofos to be abandoning their MESSiah anytime soon. They´ll be busy covering up for, and throwing the race card around ceaselessly for their precious boy until he leaves office. Expect any and all critics of the current WH resident will be continually hounded and smeared as racists until he leaves office. It´s the only way the current powers that be, shut the good folks up.

Read the Declaration of Independence - it spoke to our current circumstances -

That whenever any for m of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the RIGHT of the PEOPLE to alter or to abolish it and to institute new from, as to them shall seem most likely to effect the Safety and Happiness.

Hmmmm! Seems like the Puritans and their friends had much more courage than the dissidents in this country.

Until we get an opposition party that truly opposes the status quo - we are going to continue to play into the hands of the communists who are controlling the destiny of America.

As David Horwitz says, it is time to call them what they are - communists and they are in both parties.

I agree with #4. Obama’s collapse is not going to be one of those controlled demolitions where well-placed charges bring down massive buildings without damaging nearby structures. It is going to be a mess. A lot of innocent Americans are going to suffer from Obama’s incompetence and the media’s tolerance of his repeated mistakes. Those American’s only sin was watching too much television . They are going to pay dearly for it.

I love Dunn. He can always be relied upon to let it fly:

When the crises come -- the inevitable one involving packed ERs, shuttered hospitals, and hundreds or thousands of deaths beginning this January, and the still vague but foreboding possibilities when war season opens next Spring -- we´ll know where not to turn, and what not to expect. It´s a simple and undeniable truth: you don´t turn to clowns in an emergency.

Too many voters "turned to clowns" when they voted to elect him the first time, when there was no emergency. Now, Obama has created several emergencies:

Millions losing their health care and doctors
Death Panels
90 million jobs gone
National debt thru the roof
More people on welfare than ever in US history
Constitutional overreach
Selective law enforcement
NSA spying
IRS voter intimidation and fraud
Theft of patents by our gov´t
Iran nuking up

To quote the cancer patient whose life-saving policy and doctors was stolen from him, "Why is our government doing this to us?"

This is a question that needs answering.

Blacks are realizing that Zerobama is white, not black. The only thing he has in common with black people is his skin color, sort of. He´s really too light skinned to be considered black by most blacks.

He snookered them and they fell for it. He was raised by whites in white environments and for all practical purposes, he is white, to say nothing of the FACT that he is at least half white physically. We can´t know for sure since no one is absolutely certain who his father even is!

He uses the black population for their votes. He´s done nothing for them but talk. It´s now twice as hard for a black person to get a job as it was when Zero took office.

Hey, wake up, he´s white, not black.

We still have three years for him to complete this fall from grace. And regardless of how bad things are in the country with a collapsing healthcare system, enemies at the gates, etc. The Obamas and his inner circle (Jarrett) will fall from grace and have a very soft landing - probably make the Clintons look like pikers when the Obamas start the next stage of their careers and money grubbing.

It´s an enlightening article which has the persona of a fraud that has gelled into a complete clueless clown.
The problem I have if a collapse occurs is all of Washington and almost an entire government are all thieves, power mongers, tax cheats, deal making communist cabal of nitwits.
An entire government purging is in order and the slow motion of elections might not be the solution when the Spring of War happens next year.
Where do we go from here to right or stop this destruction. It may turn out the buffoon at the top is the least of our worries.

I can´t remember which Russian it was - they all condemn us - who said that America would be torn down from the inside. Whether outsiders would do it to us or we would do it to ourselves remained to be seen. And we see it now.

The only thing to save us from a further three years of internal destruction is the tearing down of the regime from the inside, beginning with the man who calls himself Obama.

He is physically and mentally unstable and as such supremely susceptible to ridicule and disrespect. The fact that he is setting himself up for it is just sweetener.

We need to keep the pressure on. (It would be nice if the Republicans could see this and participate.) Once he crumbles, the cabal in the WH will disintegrate and scatter like cockroaches.

It´s a lovely mental image.

Mandela funeral? Let´s talk about the Mandela funeral.

Mandela was reported to have died on December 5. His memorial was on December 10. How is it possible for all these heads of state, celebrities, politicians, and all of their entourages, security people, hair stylists, photographers, and other assorted hangers-on to all mobilize simultaneously in LESS THAN A WEEK to fly to the bottom of nowhere (Johannesburg)? The obvious answer is that it´s not. It´s not possible. All this took months to book and plan and organize. Heck, the seating chart probably took a month. Which lends credence to the reports that Mandela died in June, and was kept technically alive on machines while this was all organized. A big show. A phony signer at a phony memorial. The only question is whether everyone knew beforehand the date they would pull the plug, or whether it was a surprise party. Sort of a flash memorial, with everyone just waiting for the signal to start. Ghoulish when you ponder it a bit.

The reason that Republicans aren´t using any of the Obozo problems to hammer him with is simple. As mentioned a few days in an article, the "establishment" Republicans are simply more interested in keeping the power positions that they occupy and fear of losing them if the country truly turns to a real, bona fide conservative bent. That´s why they are more interested in fighting conservatives than they are in fighting Obozo.

Hoisting him up on their shoulders, the left-wing media, JournOlisters and all the rest, have been responsible, culpable, guilty of foisting him and his fellow travelers on our necks.

They´re all inextricably linked with him, equally responsible... perhaps more so, since they did not do "due diligence".

He proclaimed that he would "fundamentally transform" our Republic, and indeed he has, taking a wrecking ball to it, causing dislocation and suffering ALL OF IT unnecessary. Unnecessary UNLESS this was the intention all along.

This means that he has plotted evil, and carried it out.

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government. (Snip) As Second Amendment expert and activist Clayton Cramer says, Stevens is pushing a bunch of hornswaggle. I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that. It is both inaccurate and misleading – and not even in a very clever way.

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

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

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight
