Obama´s Inexplicable Love
for the Dark Side

American Thinker, by James Lewis

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/2/2014 7:07:16 AM

Even the American left is finally realizing that this is the strangest administration in living memory. Obama simply has no real precedents, which is why he seems so utterly foreign. American presidents tend to be pragmatists, but Obama is locked into a simpleminded ideology of Good vs. Evil. Obama is Good, and anybody who disagrees with him is Evil. Much of this oddity stems from the president’s personality, which many people have described as a mix of major narcissism, borderline personality disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. Personality disordered people can be very functional in their jobs.

There were those who put him in office knowing all of this about him. Valerie Jarrett was one of them. She runs the show and it is pretty obvious, she doesn´t know what she is doing either. He is the true Manchurian President.

Obama exhibits the classic signs of a sociopath. He has a lot of company in the upper layers of the political class.

0bama is good and everybody that disagrees with him is evil - is not necessarily a bad or unworkable approach. All messiahs are like that. The danger and the sheer distructiveness comes from the primary assumption, which exactly opposite of the reality of this case.
Six years ago I had no doubt who this man was. A doctrinaire Marxist at fundamental odds with this country´s ethos. The sheer evilness is frankly surprising me daily.

Oh, it´s explicable all right. Look at his parentage. His mentors. His teachers. His enablers. He has been raised, groomed, and positioned precisely for what he is now doing.

The parallel I´d make is Jim Jones, who convinced about 900 of his followers to take the Kool-Aid and commit suicide with him. Piker. Obama has convinced just enough of a nation of 300,000,000 to commit suicide with him.

FTA: "This administration, and our political-media elites, no longer supports good against evil."

Might I add this administration, and our political-media elites, along with most of academia no longer recognize God and would willingly eliminate those who of us who do. The Bible has pertinent insight into why this is happening.

II Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)

1. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphermers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.

3. Without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good.

4. Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

I realize mankind has had this mindset since the beginning of time, but I have never in my life seen it so blatantly displayed in this country. Good is rejected and evil is embraced. Perilous times, indeed.

He practises agitation politics. That´s all he knows. He has a third world outlook of politics, which for him means taking a piece of the pie from someone else, not growing it.

That said, it does appear that every thought that arises in his head is self-evidently correct to him without need for any curther thought, as with all Dims. He has no depth or ability to challenge his knee jerk reaction to issues.

Whether he wants to help people- or who he wants to help (Kenyans? Mexicans?) - are unknowns.

The fact that obama is insane was only suspected in 2008 but it has been proven over and over since then. The reason that it has taken so long for most people to realize it is because they have been measuring him against old standards.

It is the morality, greed and stupidity of the people who vote for and support him that enable him to thrive. Obama merely filled a hole that they made for him. Getting rid of him will solve one small part of the problem but there are many evil people willing to take his place and will undoubtedly be chosen over those who are good and honest. Imagine the damage that can potentially be done if the next president is evil AND intelligent.

This is probably among Lewis´ best columns, and that is really saying something:

The upshot of the article is the following quote, but the entire article is jam-packed with gems, observations and outstanding research. This is one to send to your friends and family.

My constant question is: Why do Obama and our political-media elite pretend they don’t know [about the Muslim human rights violations around the world?] Obama lived four years in Jakarta, Indonesia, in the aftermath of exactly this kind of jihadist civil war. He knows, he knows. The answer has to be that our ruling left has simply chosen to appease or support the Dark Side.

To deny that a "dark side" exists is to be living in unicorn country.

In fact, in all cases listed above [read the article and click the links provided], the United States under Obama and his crowd has actively supported the worst side. When all is said and done, the answer is simple. This administration, and our political-media elites, no longer supports good against evil.

The moral equivalence in the liberal worldview doesn´t admit the existence of evil, unless they are talking about conservatives. Right is wrong and Left is always, without exception, right.

Self-delusion is an ugly thing. Meanwhile, I nominate this column by James Lewis as column of the week.

The one Obama narcissistic trait I find most troubling is his lack of empathy. He can pretend but it´s not there. Like his supposed empathy for Palestinian children but no empathy for Israeli children. He´s cold blooded in my book and incapable of feelings. This author points that out.

As many others have noted, the only thing more frightening than this ... creature ... is the electorate that put him in office -- not once (an excusable mistake) but twice (beyond all excuses).

I fear that what used to be the collective American mind (and spirit and character) -- which, not that long ago, never would have allowed this charlatan onto the national stage -- has been weakened, poisoned, and overwhelmed by powers that are rapidly becoming irresistible.

From our point of view, or from the point of view of any sane person, Obama and the other Stalinists controlling our "Establishment" have deliberately chosen Evil; however, we must remember that all these clowns are operating according to the foundation of the Liberal Religion: that is, Moral Relativism.

Yep -- to them everything´s relative, and they, relative to everyone else, are perfect. Therefore, relatively speaking, everything they do or say is good, and everything everyone else does or says is bad.

Obama and all the rest of the Left are simply people who are emotionally and intellectually stuck at about age twelve. This explains their attitudes and behavior.
Folks, we´ve got a bunch of spoiled, petulant, conceited pre-adolescents trying to rule us.

Obama´s every foreign policy move has supported or advantaged the Islamists in particular the Muslim Brotherhood and their offshoots (e.g. al Qaeda, Hamas, ISIS, etc.). He grew up in a Muslim country and went to a muslim school that required that students be Muslims so he knows that Muslims in general but Islamists in particular encourage those distinctly non-western, dark and evil practices listed in the article. He has never condemned such practices, in fact by his actions he furthers their spread. His fathers (real and step) were Muslims. His brother is a Muslim (who works for the Muslim Brotherhood). It is therefore a straight-forward deduction that there is no mystery here and that he is probably a ___, you fill in the blank (no curse words).

The western left, like a herd of stampeding buffalo with Obama currently in the lead is heading towards the darkness and has been for decades.

They love, celebrate and seek out all that is defective and malformed whether in their "heros," their family life, or their amusements. Thus their support for blanket welfare, drugs, moral ambiguity, communism, islam and abortion.

So how far in advance of the herd is Obama? And is he leading or merely running with the herd?

The NY Post article referred to in this article, quoting Bill Clinton about Obama: "I’ve got to get this guy to owe me and to be on our side.”

For such a supposedly savvy politician, this was a huge miscalculation and failure to accurately assess someone. The problem, as evidenced over and over again, is that Obama will NEVER feel he owes ANYONE. But even if he does, he does not hesitate to betray them to serve his own interests. What was Bill thinking? Easy. He made the mistake of thinking of Obama as human. He is not. He is a monster. A golem. Whether he was born that way or turned into it, the result is the same. You cannot trust him.

There is a lengthy process a candidate must go through to be elected POTUS and one might assume that it would yield one of the best available in the whole nation. This assumption is horribly wrong. A random choice of US citizens would certainly select a better leader. Obama is probably the worst president possible. It would be an interesting exercise to name somebody who would be worse! Even children, the simpleminded, or incompetent would be better. Obama is a complete disaster!

Apparently 0bama has been conditioned throughout his lifetime to personally have a vindictive philosophy of life which has led him to conclude & embrace a world view foreign to most Americans and those who respect & HONOR the principles securing liberty itself throughout the planet. He ignores the law and presumptuously bores ahead based upon his own whims and the teachings of his youthful communist mentors.

FTA "...have described as a mix of major narcissism, borderline personality disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. Personality disordered people can be very functional in their jobs. But they are very destructive to others. People with such disorders rarely admit they can be wrong. Narcissism is almost defined by that feature: someone who knows with godlike certainty that he is right all the time, who cannot admit a fault, and who therefore needs to blame others every time something goes wrong.

It only was a short statement in the article, but it´s worth emphasizing. Obama´s characteristics are that of a pothead and meth user. He has clearly demonstrated that he cannot make a decision on his own....so do you think that he made a decision to stop taking drugs when he became president? He is lazy, vindictive, narcissistic, unclear, unable to answer direct questions, shuns responsibility, blatantly lies, looks for attention and laughs....Folks - If this described your teenager, wouldn´t YOU be suspicious and worried? I wish there were a way to do a discreet blood test on this guy. Maybe offer a reward for one of his razor blades?

With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech.

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State.

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point.

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false. We discover that lapses in

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

Another weird Obama pronunciation

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Michelle Obama: U.S. Has Improved

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
