Patrick Fitzgerald leaves office, Media portrays Fitzgerald as fearless crime fighter, Patrick Fitzgerald protected Obama delayed Blagojevich prosecution

“Patrick Fitzgerald’s office knew from an informant and wiretaps beginning in December of 2003 that there was corruption in Blagojevich’s administration. The Chicago Tribune on October 25, 2005 reported about a federal grand jury investigation of the Blagojevich administration. The Chicago Tribune on August 5, 2006 reported that Stuart Levine was cooperating with the federal investigation. Stuart Levine was the key witness in Operation Board Games.

Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, Governor of IL, prosecuted before Tony Rezko, a businessman?

Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“Patrick Fitzgerald stated after the Blagojevich arrest: ‘I was not going to wait until March or April or May to get it all nice and tidy’

‘I think that would be irresponsible.’

Fitzgerald did wait to arrest Blagojevich and there are other words to describe his actions. Criminal, conspiracy and Chicago pay to play.”…Citizen Wells

“Antoin Rezko, …recently received a sentence of 126 months’ imprisonment for corrupt activity that he engaged in directly with Blagojevich or with  Blagojevich’s tacit approval. Yet, Rezko: (a) held no elected office of trust;”…Patrick Fitzgerald’s Government Sentencing Memorandum

“The people in power,the first thing they have to do,they have to get control of the media.The perfect example was my case.The main person that I attempted to give information on,the person who was in charge of a lot of things the person who was able to pick all the judges,was one of my main targets.While he also happens to be the same person who’s able to give out all the money ,in the city, he’s Chairman of Finance Committee in Chicago.He was able to hire the U.S. Attorney who was supposed to prosecute him,pay him huge sums of money and he never got prosecuted.There was no explanation as to why he didn’t .He just was not prosecuted.To this day he continues there in that same position where he’s able to pick all the judges,he’s Chairman of the Democratic Judicial Slating Committee.He picks all the judges in Chicago.After I reported what I did and it was out there,that he was fixing murder cases and molesting cases, himself and his wife.His wife afterwards was appointed to the Illinois Supreme Court where she sits today.When she ran for re-election nobody dared oppose her.I mean that’s the basic problem with Chicago and why Chicago will not change,because the people in charge are the most powerful people,have the media in their pockets.”…FBI Informant and attorney Robert Cooley

With all of the attention on the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare, the sad state of the economy and the 2012 elections, Patrick Fitzgerald left his post with the US Justice Department with glowing remarks from the mainstream media.

From the Chicago SunTimes June 29, 2012.

“After 11 years as U.S. attorney in Chicago, Fitzgerald steps aside”

“The relentless U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois ended his 11-year run as Chicago’s top federal prosecutor Friday, retiring from an office that brought countless criminals to justice.

“I think his legacy will be that he raised the bar of what it means to be a U.S. Attorney in Chicago. It’s a great office with a great history. Pat came from outside and over 10 years built upon that history to leave the office better than he found it,” said Zachary Fardon, who prosecuted former Gov. George Ryan under Fitzgerald and now is a defense lawyer.

“He did that through hard work, but most important was his purity of intentions, the earnestness of his convictions, and his kindness of heart, all of which motivated everyone around him to be better. That’s hard to act to follow.”

The end of Fitzgerald’s run was a sprint to the finish.

On Thursday, his office announced a significant public corruption investigation against two former elected officials — Joseph Mario Moreno and Ambrosio Medrano.

Last week, the FBI arrested Raghuveer Nayak, a political fund-raiser who was a key figure in the Rod Blagojevich corruption case as well as a man close to U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr.”

“Under Fitzgerald’s tenure, the state saw the dismantling of the power structures beneath two governors and then the convictions of the governors themselves — Ryan, a Republican, and Blagojevich, a Democrat.”

 
Oh really?
 
I began smelling a rat in 2008 before the election and when Fitzgerald waited until after the election, in December 2008, to  arrest Rod Blagojevich, the stench became overwhelming.
 
From Citizen Wells June 22, 2012.
 

“From the Blagojevich Criminal Complaint.

Since approximately 2003, the government has been investigating allegations
of illegal activity occurring in State of Illinois government as part of the administration of Governor ROD BLAGOJEVICH. As further detailed below, the investigation has developed evidence that: (a) beginning not later than in or about 2002, ROD BLAGOJEVICH has conspired with multiple individuals”
From the Washington Post December 22, 2008.

“The wide-ranging public corruption probe that led to the arrest of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich got its first big break when a grandmother of six walked into a breakfast meeting with shakedown artists wearing an FBI wire.
Pamela Meyer Davis had been trying to win approval from a state health planning board for an expansion of Edward Hospital, the facility she runs in a Chicago suburb, but she realized that the only way to prevail was to retain a politically connected construction company and a specific investment house. Instead of succumbing to those demands, she went to the FBI and U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald in late 2003 and agreed to secretly record conversations about the project.

Her tapes led investigators down a twisted path of corruption that over five years has ensnared a collection of behind-the-scenes figures in Illinois government, including Joseph Cari Jr., a former Democratic National Committee member, and disgraced businessman Antoin “Tony” Rezko.””

 
From American Thinker February 29, 2012.
 
“Some ‘Splainin’ to do in Chicago”
 

“On February 27, a Chicagoland website, Illinois PayToPlay, cited the star witness in the Operation Gambit trials of the early ’90s, Robert Cooley, as a primary source for the news that Daniel Frawley says he gave $400,000 in cash to Tony Rezko, who then passed it on to Barack Obama.

In case you missed Cooley’s story, James Peterson, writing for Andrew Breitbart’s Big Journalism, noted that “[i]n the mid-1980’s, Chicago Outfit Lawyer Robert Cooley voluntarily went undercover for the FBI as part of an investigation called Operation Gambat. Cooley wore a wire on, among others, [Alderman Ed] Burke’s good friend and made-man, Alderman Fred Roti. The Chief Judge of Cook County’s Chancery Court and an Assistant Senate Majority Leader of the Illinois State Senate were also targeted. Cooley’s work eventually led to the only judge in U.S. history being convicted of fixing a murder trial.”
Cooley is a Chicago legend.

As the star witness for the prosecution back then, Cooley’s credibility was validated by 26 convictions. Now, Cooley is back on the Chicago scene along with news that leaves a number of current, and former, Chicagoans with some splainin’ to do. Among the short list are these persons of interest.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald: It requires what one well-known politician once called “the willing suspension of disbelief” to think that the U.S. Attorney’s Office (USAO) was unaware of this allegation by Frawley. Did Fitzgerald’s staff investigate it? Or did this fall into the “Wired for Silence: Fitzgerald’s Rezko Watchers” arrangement, recently suggested in the Chicago Daily Observer, where three key moles close to Rezko never testified in Rezko’s trial, nor were any conversations they taped made public?

Chicago Sun-Times: A July 11, 2011 Times article stated that, “Details about Frawley’s cooperation with the U.S. attorney’s office, the FBI and the Illinois attorney general’s office can be gleaned from a 65-page court deposition he gave seven months ago in a legal-malpractice lawsuit that he filed against his former longtime lawyer, George Weaver. In the lawsuit, Frawley accuses Weaver of having overbilled him and telling him to ‘withhold certain information from the government’ when he was cooperating with authorities.”

What “certain information?” Did the Sun-Times aggressively pursue an answer to that question, or merely “glean”?

That 65-page deposition was executed on December 1, 2010 — but hold that thought.

Attorney Daniel F. Konicek: He represented Frawley’s former lawyer, George Weaver, in the deposition. The Times highlighted the following exchange between Konicek and Frawley: “Later in the deposition, Weaver’s lawyer, Daniel F. Konicek, asks Frawley about what specific information Weaver is supposed to have told Frawley to withhold from federal authorities. ‘I’m assuming the information is about the payments made by Rezko to Obama, so we know we’re talking about the right conversation, right?’ Konicek asks Frawley. Frawley doesn’t answer. So Konicek presses him: ‘Am I correct it was about Obama being paid by Rezko?’ Frawley replies: ‘I’m not answering that question, based upon my attorney’s instructions.'”

Where did that question come from? Konicek? Weaver? Did Konicek expect Frawley to answer?

Makes you wonder: was the whole deposition a kabuki dance intended to send a message to the USAO, and others, that Frawley knows some things, and might tell them to the world if he gets jammed up by the feds?

Back to Patrick Fitzgerald: Not two months after the December 2010 deposition, Frawley was hit with a bank fraud charge that was past the statute of limitations. Coincidence?

Or was it payback for filing the Weaver lawsuit, and a warning to Frawley that he’d better keep his mouth shut about the $400,000…and who knows what else? (Like maybe something about Companion Security?)”

“Chicago Big Media: Why did it take an obscure website to break this story when the Sun-Times has those three-musketeer journalists they call the WATCHDOGS?

And when the Trib has equally dogged sleuths like John Kass and John Chase?

Did either paper have knowledge concerning what Illinois Pay To Play reported and decide to sit on the information?

Thanks to the legendary Bob Cooley, yet again, some current and former Chicagoans got some ‘splainin’ to do. But, what we’ll most likely hear instead is the sound of crickets.”

    Bingo!

  3. Ya gotta wonder why he decided to step down with no place to go? What’s the rush??

  4. Whistleblower

    Fitz was sent to Illinois to clear the way. Peter Fitzgerald was a cover story, James Comey sent Fitz to IL and now Comey after a stint at Lockheed Martin has recently become a partner at Eric Holder’s law firm, Covington & LLP

  5. Whistleblower

    Sorry, thats Covington & Burling LLP

  6. Whistleblower

    One more thing, Comey was a straw dog on the short list against Fitz for FBI director. So was Jamie Gorelek. Fitz was a sure thing until somthing happened. I suspect sites like CW changed things. However, watch for Fitz to make a comeback as FBI director or possibly replacement for Holder.

  7. You might be on to something there Whistleblower…..Fitz didn’t step down without reason.

  8. Nice to have you back Whistleblower; Who is James Comey and Jamie Gorelek?

    Waves of Lawsuits Pending Barclays Affair Rocks European Banking Industry

    By Martin Hesse

    The LIBOR rate-fixing scandal has sent a shock wave through the whole European financial industry. A number of other banks are suspected of having manipulated interest rates, and Deutsche Bank has already suspended two employees. Experts warn of a wave of lawsuits that could ruin some institutions.
    Info

    Bob Diamond seemed nervous when he sat in front of the members of the Treasury Committee of the British House of Commons last week. He had been forced to resign as CEO of Barclays, a major bank, the day before. Suddenly Diamond, once such an important figure, seemed very small indeed.

    He poured himself a glass of water, cleared his throat and wiped his mouth with a handkerchief. The banker seemed like a stubborn child as he described his view of the scandal over the manipulation of interest rates that had just cost him his job.

    Yes, Barclays employees had behaved reprehensively when they manipulated interest rates for years, Diamond said. But he also insisted that he had known nothing about it, and pointed out that other banks had also fudged their financial records. “I love Barclays. History will judge Barclays as an incredible institution because of its people.”

    Historians are probably more likely to remember Diamond’s appearance and the scandal as a milestone in the demise of investment banks.

    Continues here…….

  17. Failure of Serious Energy is a ‘BFD’ for Obama and His Chicago Cronies

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/07/10/Failure-of-Serious-Energy-is-a-BFD

    Before there was Solyndra, there was Serious Energy. The company was personally hyped by President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Senator Roland Burris (remember him?) as a “green jobs” company funded by Obama’s 2009 stimulus. Today, Serious Energy is closing factories and laying off workers–and the Federal Trade Commission has found it made false claims about the energy efficiency of its products.

    The story of Serious Energy is a metaphor for Obama’s political career, featuring strong-arm union tactics, corrupt Chicago politicians, crony capitalism, and media propaganda. Back in May 2010, it was already clear that Serious Energy was a fiasco, one Breitbart News called the “Weatherization Undergound.” Two years and hundreds of millions of dollars later, the company is near the end of its natural trajectory as an Obama prop.

  18. Many of the banks in America are also connected to the lawsuits and scandals…..I posted much on this earlier…..too bad CW continues to put everything I post in moderation or you might know about this a while back Pacman!

    “GET OUT” by Ryan

    About SoOutLoud.com from Ryan himself:

    “SoOutloud.com emerged from his desire to just say it! Too often, the ever oxymoronic state of political correctness, prevents people from saying what they’re thinking–even when they have the truth to back it all up.

    As someone who is as black as Obama, he, (unlike “Obama”) values racial reconciliation and harmony, very limited government, free speech, free markets, and human rights for the most defenseless among us (the unborn).

    Ryan doesn’t rely upon political solutions for most social ailments; that gives too much credit and power to politicians.

    People need to be engaged on all levels…in their families, their communities, their churches and civic organizations, their schools, and their government.”

  21. Whistleblower

    Remember, Blago donated a couple million dollars worth of flu vacinations to Pakistan so Illinois tax payers would be on the hooked to pay for them. Didn’t Pakistan seem like an odd choice ?

  22. Whistleblower; you are a wealth of information and have the memory of an elephant…wow, how do you remember all that

  23. Whistleblower; When Blagojevich did that now famous interview at “Republic Windows” the day before his arrest saying, “you want to record my conversations, go ahead I got nothin to hide” and the next day he was arrested…The John Chase article was one week old, he knew full well he was a hard target of the feds and he was planning his stradegy, staging well rehearsed phone conversations aware he was being recorded by the feds.

  24. More from the religion of destruction (esp.now with the Muslim Brotherhood taking more control – thank you Hillary for placing one of the wonders of the world on the chopping block – is there anything you think about BEFORE you take stupid actions like the “Arab Spring”?):

  25. More explanation of the probable Obama/Dunham sham “marriage”:

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/immigration-officers-doubted-obama-birth-story/

    Contrary to Maraniss’ assertion, the INS officers didn’t appear to be concerned about the interracial nature of the Kenyan’s sexual activities at the university.

    What was of concern was that Obama Sr. and Dunham were not living together as husband and wife, and their marriage might have been arranged for immigration purposes.

    Under 8 U.S.C. Section 1325(c), current immigration law specifies that any individual who knowingly enters into a marriage for the purpose of evading any provision of the immigration laws is subject to up to five years imprisonment and a maximum fine of $250,000, or both.

    In 1961, the INS, in investigating suspected marriages of convenience, would interview the two individuals separately and ask questions about the personal, often intimate, habits of the alleged mate.

    Give the baby to the Salvation Army??

    Bessie,
    The taped conversations they sealed and we never heard. One of my favorites is in 2006 the Chicago Tribune acknowleges that they are cooperating with Patrick Fitzgerald by witholding news stories until he gives the OK to print (John Thomas FBI mole) and Blago knowing this still feels comfortable enough to extort the Tribune, Blago truely was surprised the morning he was arrested by the U.S. Attorney he knew to be crooked and in the bag.

    Once a Liar…
    By William L. Gensert

    The man is a liar. Every time Barack Obama gives a speech or makes a statement and then turns to walk away from the podium, I expect to see another set of lips on the back of his head, flapping out the opposite of whatever the front of him just finished blabbing.

    It’s not a tax, it is a tax, it’s not a tax. Not only does it make you dizzy, but you have to wonder if Obama thinks America comprises complete morons and nothing else.

    FAIR also blasted the Obama administration for the plans.

    “It’s part of the systematic dismantling of both border and interior enforcement,” Dane told FoxNews.com. “It complements the non-enforcement policy of this administration.”

    He warned that local officials in those areas will have a hard time summoning far-away Border Patrol agents to assist, and said the tone of Green’s memo was a “not-so-subtle shout-out” that the agency feels “outmanned, outgunned … by their own government.”

    THANK YOU BOB!
    This video was posted in October 2008 but wasn’t widely publicized. Is Obama really using hypnosis techniques on the American public? What is really occurring when some important official is called to a private meeting at the White House?

    Soetoro may have HYPNOTISED America, but I was NOT ONE of those who fell for his BS. Not even for a moment. Further I believe that I was NOT ALONE!

  40. Soetoro is NOTHING, except e CHEAP, LYING CON MAN. Yet THOUSANDS OF AMERICANS believed his BS. This was not his fault……..I place the blame squarely where it belongs………upon those who refused to THINK FOR THEMSELVES.

  41. ………….and WE got exactly what THEY asked for, and now EVERYBODY is paying for it!

  42. BYE BYE ALL……….Got some important stuff to do.

  43. oldsalt79 | July 11, 2012 at 12:21 pm |

    Soetoro is NOTHING, except e CHEAP, LYING CON MAN.
    ——————————-
    oldsalt,
    I sorta disagree with you. I think he is much worse than that. I think he is in league with Satan and the antichrist. Clinton could be called a “CHEAP, LYING CON MAN”, but this guy is pure evil. It almost makes me yearn for the “good old days” when Clinton was in office. Atleast then, our reps had the courage to stand up to him and stop some of the legeslation he was trying to push through. Today? Pffft!

  44. I never thought I would yearn for the good old days of the Clinton administration, but I have to agree with SueQ.

  45. SueQ,
    Truly the usurper is worse than anyone could imagine, and I agree that he is pure evil and under the control of Satan.

    I remember learning about his hypnosis techniques back in 2008 and do believe that this is a part of his persuasion. However, to succumb to hypnosis I’ve always understood that you have to yield yourselves to it, even if ever so subtly. There are many of us who were never moved by his wiles, and I believe it is because our minds have been bathed in truth.

    Those who WANT to believe in him – i.e., think that he could bring “hope and change” – are open to the hypnotic suggestions. Others not so much.

    Many years ago Larry King had a few people on his program which featured a segment on hypnosis. I was astounded that hypnosis worked on these intelligent people who came forward and sat in a row. They were put under a spell in which they did involuntary things. When I asked my pastor about this (my pastor had been clinically trained in hypnosis many years before), he said that the very action of the people going forward was enough to open themselves to hypnotic influence. Interesting.

  46. SueQ,
    It isn’t just “truth” that we must embrace, but “the love of the truth”….
    As we know from II Thess. 2: 10b -11:
    …….because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie… Powerful words.

  47. It’s pretty well understood that certain personalities lend themselves to being deluded. And this, nowadays, can take place on a massive level….as seen by the practical hysteria that took place, for no foundational facts or evidence, during the Obama speech/campaign audiences. I don’t think it was simply the power of his personality but that, aided by the media hype and how the inexperienced/innocent opinions were already formed to be more than acceptable to the man. They were, iow, fish ready for the bait.

    Usually this can be easily manipulated in the youth with mush for brains and the new hormone experience….as was the case with Elvis and others. But why did adults in such large numbers themselves never question beyond the silly soundbites? Well, in the last several decades, where have the solid common sense, self discipline foundational stones been missing? Disintegration of the family, the basic teaching foundation for reason and morals, esp. in the black community; and where have such communities of the past gotten their teachings elsewhere? from the pulpits, civic leaders, and the trusted teaching community. They’re now pretty much all snake oil salesmen. And look at those today….esp. within again the black community. If all of those foundations for truth go missing…as they say, if you don’t believe in God (in Truth) then you’re open to believe in anything….in fact we are made to believe in something since we are limited humanly. And there ya go….generations ripe for delusion. Just punch the right instinctively human buttons by someone on that same delusional plane, but aware of his prey, and bingo you’ve got the psychological control of emotions without thought. Also, there is that eternal motivator for ignorance stubbornly held on to…..pride!

  48. Russians mull burying Soviet leader Lenin

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/jul/10/russians-mull-burying-soviet-leader-lenin/?page=1

    As a character in Soviet writer Andrei Platonov’s 1929 novel “The Foundation Pit” stated: “Marxism can do anything. Why do you think Lenin lies in Moscow perfectly intact? He is waiting for science. He wants to rise from the dead.”

  49. SueQ & Cabby – AZ –For what it may be worth, my reading of encryptions in the Torah –the Bible Code–shows Obama’s name, spelled out in Hebrew letters longwise, as related to the word, ANTI-ChRISTO, spelled out in Hebrew letters longwise. This is in the Five Books of Moses.

    ‘OBAMA (alef,vav,bet,alef,mem,alef) skip 19
    ANTI-ChRISTO (alef,nun,tav,yod,kaf,resh,yod,sin,tav,vav) skip 12018

    With a matrix of 6006, ANTI-ChRISTO at a skip of 12018 crosses at a slight slant from perpendicular and is mathematically compact with ‘OBAMA at a skip of 19. With a matrix of 6009 it crosses and is exactly perpendicular.

    There is only a 1.87% probability that ANTI-ChRISTO could come up in the Five Books at any skip at all. That it crosses ‘OBAMA with a 6006 matrix is very peculiar.

    I’m not sure what to make of it but another Torah Code student, a Dr. Robert Wolf, associated Obama with a prophetic prototype of GOG from Ezekial and another evil ruler in Daniel who is supposed to be in power 3 and 1/2 years. He predicted Obama would be elected way back in May 2007, before he was even nominated. He co-authored a book on Bible Code stuff with his partner Joel Gallis. From what I understand, Gallis died rather unexpectedly and Dr. Wolf seemed to drop out of sight. His predictions were noted a Ron Paul’s site and on an Israeli radio program you can google.

    I tried via the net to locate Dr. Wolf because of my searches in the Torah Code showing a Biden Presidency with the date of July 20, 2012 coming up prominently. July 20, 2012, would be exactly 3 and 1/2 years to the day that Obama took office. Does this imply a possibility or an actuality? I don’t know.

    But I feel that the fear of a kind of “politecal tsunami” and “blood in the streets” may not be unfounded if these Torah Code finds are somehow real. A Romney Presidency is indicated as “Tov,” “good” in the Torah Code. Perhaps the Almighty’s hand of grace may still be held out to the USA if we will but take it.

  50. Another Florida Ballot Challenge Coming to Tallahassee
    Via Sam Sewell

    Judge Stanley Mills ruled today, July 10, 2012, in the Pasco County Florida ballot challenge case against Barack Obama, to transfer the case to Leon County (Tallahassee). Jerry Collette, the plaintiff, had argued that his case should proceed in Pasco County, under the rule that venue is proper in the county where he suffered his damages.

    Collette said, “Apparently, the judge did not want this hot potato. Passing my case off to Tallahassee got it off his plate. I am glad that he did not toss it out completely, which he certainly could have done. I am still hoping that a judge, somewhere, will allow a case like this to proceed on the merits and order the original birth documents produced.”

    Sam Sewell, Director of Florida Ballot Challenge, said, “We still need more plaintiffs to file similar cases. Some judge, somewhere, is waiting for somebody to show up with one of these ballot challenge cases. The more cases people file, the more likely we are to find that one courageous judge that we have been seeking.”

    Collette stated he would not appeal this ruling now, but would proceed in Tallahassee. It could take several weeks for Collette’s case to show up in and for the pending motions to get calendared for hearings. We will post updates, including the new case number and judge’s name, as we know them.

  51. Wayne LaPierre to UN: Americans Will Never Surrender the Second Amendment

    “Today NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre addressed the United Nations as the debate about the Arms Trade Treaty, or the “Small Arms Treaty,” continues in New York City. The treaty is written to make it seem as though only arms transferred by governments will be affected but the details of the language seem to show the treaty applies to civilian firearms.

    The treaty has been classified as an international effort to attack the Second Amendment in the United States Constitution.”

    “I am hear to announce the NRA’s strong opposition to anti-freedom policies that disregard American citizens’ right to self defense. No foreign entity has jurisdiction over the freedoms our Founding Fathers guaranteed to us.”

    SueQ & Cabby – AZ –For what it may be worth, my reading of encryptions in the Torah –the Bible Code–shows Obama’s name, spelled out in Hebrew letters longwise, as related to the word, ANTI-ChRISTO, spelled out in Hebrew letters longwise. This is in the Five Books of Moses.
    ***********************************
    In years past whenever hearing of the Bible Code, I have rather dismissed it when it comes to prophetic events; however, since you have spoken of it from time to time here at CW’s, I would certainly not consider it as implausible.
    Almighty God is not limited, and He may have chosen to reveal certain events by unique means. There are certainly a number of instances which you relate that are very unusual to say the least, and should not be disregarded, imho.

    Personally I see in the Bible itself many traits of Obama that are described as being those of the AntiChrist (Gog, The Little Horn , The Assyrian, the Man of Sin, Vile Person, etc.) . His rise on the world scene, his life of lies and deception, “his mouth speaking great things” are just a few of the comparisons. There are many others, but there are also a few things about him that do not completely fulfill written prophecy, at least not as of now. We need to just keep diligently watching, because events are unfolding right before our eyes.

  55. Cabby – AZ | July 11, 2012 at 2:29 pm |

    SueQ,
    It isn’t just “truth” that we must embrace, but “the love of the truth”….
    As we know from II Thess. 2: 10b -11:
    …….because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie… Powerful words.
    ———————————————————
    Cabby you are SO right! I would have sent this message privately but maybe there are some out there that need to hear.

    Some years ago, I came to a crossroads in my Christian life. I was tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine that came down the pike.

    On my knees, I asked my Lord Jesus,

    Please, Lord wipe me clean of all of mans teaching, and replace it with Your truth. Teach me anew.

    He did Cabby.

    Not to say I don’t get led astray at times, but many here help me to stay on the right path.

  56. Cabby,
    You are a lovely person.

  57. Oh, SueQ, thank you for the loving words, but I in myself am not worthy of them.
    Your relating your personal experience is a real blessing! God always answers our sincere prayers, and that is something for which we are so thankful.

    Arizona Ballot Challenge against Obama has been dismissed
    _____________________________
    Has there ever been a court challenge to Obama’s current U.S. citizenship based on the finding of probable cause of using a fraudulent SSN in present time? How can any court dismiss the rejection of the gov’s own verify system with a no match for Obama and the CT SSN? It doesn’t seem that any emphasis has been made re: his lack of citizenship of any kind presently. Rather they seem to always go down various rabbit holes to get around the NBC matter. But the no citizenship NOW would seem to make more of a public alarm. So they should try and prove otherwise with accurate SSN. Of course I wouldn’t put anything past the cowards in order to explain that crime too.

    Sen. Rob Portman has been cited as a leading choice to be named Mitt Romney’s running mate, but in an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV he downplays vice presidential talk and says he is entirely focused on getting Romney elected president.

  66. Tina,

    Thanks for the post. I am not a fan of Mitt Romney. I was never a Ron Paul fan either. But I started thinking over the last year that Ron Paul would be the best thing that we could do to start the healing of our nation.

    But, having just listened to Romney’s address to the NAACP, and having no other choice, I am willing to give Mitt Romney the benefit of the doubt.

    I found his speech very moving and I think he was very well received. All I heard today was how he was booed. I guess that should be expected when he let ObamaCare have it. I am glad that he had the courage to state his convictions on that issue.

    I pray that, if he is elected, he will rise to the challenge, as did Ronald Reagan, and do what is right for our country.

    Lastly, I hope he has the good sense to run with someone that is constitutionally eligible.

  67. Ray:

    Ditto. Thanks for your thoughts.

  68. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/07/mitt_gets_a_standing_ovation_at_the_naacp.html

    Did Mitt just have his first moment of “campaign magic” with the NAACP? Tim Stanley of the UK Telegraph thinks so, though he specifies that it was not the usual charismatic sort of oratorical magic, but rather a challenge, and it came late in the speech, after a slow start.

    It wasn’t quite a game changer, but Mitt Romney finally gave voters a moment of magic in his NAACP convention speech this Wednesday. For once, style and content rose to the occasion. He even earned himself a standing ovation from a civil rights lobby – a big win for a Republican candidate. […]

    At first, Romney started as badly as we’ve come to expect. Here’s Mitt’s problem: the substance of his speeches might be appropriate, but he never adjusts his style to suit the situation. Close your eyes and he could have been speaking in a tractor factory. Bill Clinton might have invoked “my sweet Lord” and shed a few tears over some saccharine anecdote. Mitt just ploughed on like he was giving a breakdown of this year’s company profits. […]

    When Mitt announced that he was committed to repealing Obamacare, he was booed. That seems to have been some sort of turning point, for the crowd and for Romney. He didn’t flinch or falter:

    Pledging – with all the enthusiasm of a quarterly report from accounts – to make jobs his priority, Romney finally stepped off script and addressed the boos head on. “If you want a president who will make things better for the African-American community, you are looking at him,” he said. “You take a look.”

    “Take a look.” It was cocky, cheeky, maybe even a little rude. But it’s also making a YouTube sensation. Finally, it put the Romney arrogance to good use – saying, “I don’t care what the critics say. I’m right, the numbers show that the President’s wrong and, darn it, you people need me.” With a message like that, Clintonian theatrics are unnecessary.

    This fortitude may have won him some respect, and more importantly, his challenge to take a look may find any number of takers. When he closed with his memories of his father, that appears to have triggered the unexpected standing ovation. Stanley again:

    Mitt closed by talking about his father, George Romney. Mitt’s done this a number of times on the campaign trail in a vain bid to give himself a narrative beyond “When I was a kid, I got an A in math.” It usually fails to get a response from the audience. But this time, Romney reminded the NAACP that his father had backed civil rights laws as Governor of Michigan and marched with protesters. In other words, there is a history of Republican support for the black freedom struggle that predates the Democratic one. In fact, while George Wallace was standing on the school door and the Kennedys were tapping Martin Luther King Jnr’s phone, some Republican lawmakers were fighting the good fight against segregation.

    And what motivated George? According to Mitt, it was his Mormonism: “My father was a man of faith who knew that every person was a child of God.” For that, Mitt earned himself a chord on the church organ. By the end of the speech, the audience was on its feet.

    Put aside race for a moment. These were mostly Protestants, many of whom are active in churches, standing in approval of a Mormon’s religious convictions. Something happened here worth examining closely.

    Mitt may be finding his campaign persona, bit by bit. Fortitude is not a bad quality. People respect it.

  70. “WHAT DOES ‘JUDEO-CHRISTIAN’ MEAN?”

    By Dennis Prager
    Jewish World Review – March 30, 2004

    “THE UNIQUENESS OF AMERICA”

    http://www.jewishworldreview.com

    “The United States of America is the only country in history to have defined itself as Judeo-Christian. While the Western world has consisted of many Christian countries and consists today of many secular countries, only America has called itself Judeo-Christian. America is also unique in that it has always combined secular government with a society based on religious values.

    But what does “Judeo-Christian” mean? We need to know. Along with the belief in liberty — as opposed to, for example, the European belief in equality, the Muslim belief in theocracy, and the Eastern belief in social conformity — Judeo-Christian values are what distinguish America from all other countries. That is why American coins feature these two messages: “In G-d we trust” and “Liberty.”

    Yet, for all its importance and its repeated mention, the term is not widely understood. It urgently needs to be because it is under ferocious assault, and if we do not understand it, we will be unable to defend it.
    And if we cannot defend it, America will become as amoral as France, Germany, Russia, et al.

    First, Judeo-Christian America has differed from Christian countries in Europe in at least two important ways. One is that the Christians who founded America saw themselves as heirs to the Hebrew Bible, as much as to theirs. And even more importantly, they strongly identified with the Jews.

    For example, Thomas Jefferson wanted the design of the seal of the United States to depict the Jews leaving Egypt. Just as the Hebrews left Egypt and its values, Americans left Europe and its values (if only those who admire Jefferson would continue to take his advice).

    Founders and other early Americans probably studied Hebrew, the language of the Jewish Bible at least as much as Greek, the language of the New. Yale, founded in 1701, adopted a Hebrew insignia, and Hebrew was compulsory at Harvard until 1787.

    The words on the Liberty Bell, “Proclaim Liberty throughout all the land . . . ,” are from the Torah. Vast numbers of Americans took Hebrew names — like Benjamin Franklin and Cotton Mather (kattan in Hebrew means “little one” or “younger”).

    The consequences included a strong Hebrew Bible view of the world — meaning, in part, a strong sense of fighting for earthly justice, an emphasis on laws, a belief in a judging, as well as a loving and forgiving, G-d, and a belief in the chosenness of the Jews which America identified with.

    The significance of this belief in American chosenness cannot be overstated. It accounts for the mission that Americans have uniquely felt called to — to spread liberty in the world.

    This sense of mission is why more Americans have died for the liberty of others than any other nation’s soldiers.

    It is why those who today most identify with the Judeo-Christian essence of America are more likely to believe in the moral worthiness of dying to liberate countries — not only Europe, but Korea, Vietnam and Iraq. That is why America stands alone in protecting two little countries threatened with extinction, Israel and Taiwan.

    That is why conservative Americans are more likely to believe in American exceptionalism — in not seeking, as President Bush put it, a “permission slip” from the United Nations, let alone from Europe.”

    By Dennis Prager
    Jewish World Review – March 30, 2004

    “THE UNIQUENESS OF AMERICA”

    Con’t 2 of 2

    “The second meaning of Judeo-Christian is a belief in the biblical G-d of Israel, in His Ten Commandments and His biblical moral laws.

    It is a belief in universal, not relative, morality. It is a belief that America must answer morally to this G-d, not to the mortal, usually venal, governments of the world.

    That is why those who most affirm Judeo-Christian values lead the fight against redefining marriage. We believe
    that a pillar of Judeo-Christian values is to encourage the man-woman sexual and marital ideal, and to provide children with the opportunity to benefit from the unique gifts that a man and a woman give a child, gifts that are never replicable by two men alone or two women.

    That is why those who most affirm Judeo-Christian values are unmoved by the idea that the war in Iraq is moral if Germany, France, China and Russia say so, but immoral if they oppose it.

    We ask first what G-d and the Bible would say about liberating Iraq, not what Syria and other members of the U.N. Security Council say.

    […]

    And that is why those who want Judeo-Christian values to disappear from American public life affirm multiculturalism, seek to remove mention of G-d from all public life, and make Christmas a private, not a national, holiday.

    The battle over whether America remains Judeo-Christian or becomes secular like Europe is what this, the Second American Civil War, is about.”

  72. “ONE NATION UNDER GOVERNMENT — NOT UNDER GOD”

    Phyllis Schlafly
    July 10, 2012

    “When Barack Obama promised to “fundamentally transform the United States” we could not have anticipated the extreme transformations he would seek. The evidence is rolling in that he is determined to transform America into a totally secular land where religion is permitted only within the walls of a church and is banned in every public place, public gathering and public school.

    Obama tipped us off to his animosity toward religious Americans when, campaigning in San Francisco in 2008, he insulted religious people in small towns. He said, they “get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

    In April 2009, Obama delivered a speech at Georgetown University, only after his staff had pressured the Catholic college to conceal the monogram for the name of Jesus that was always displayed above the podium.

    In May 2009, he cancelled the traditional White House event honoring the National Day of Prayer, saying that he would pray only in private.

    Obama began censoring religious words out of important American documents, such as the Declaration of Independence, from which he many times deleted the word “Creator.”

    In a November 2010, speech, Obama pretended to quote the U.S. national motto, “In God We Trust,” but he changed it to “e pluribus unum” (out of many, one).

    […]

    Barack Obama has a record of hostility to
    religion that we have never before seen in any American pResident.”

    Sorry, Phyllis, but yes we could. And we should have.

    1. We know that the Left is hostile to religion, because religion speaks the truth about the Left’s goals: abortion, homosexuality, the destruction of the family, socialism, reliance on government, worship of government and politicians, etc.

    2. We knew going in that Barack Obama was the most extreme leftist ever to even run as a major-party candidate for President of the US. What record he had as a legislator, the speeches he gave, and his background as a community organizer told us that…”

    * * * *

    “There are those of us who saw Obama for what he is at the time we first saw him on the election trail. I myself could not watch him. There was something about him that cause my spirit to shudder. Like a rasp against a piece of wood. Obama is the human equivalent of Belial, who is/was one of Lucifer’s top lieutenant’s. Obama is not stoppable by humans. It will take the Creator to stop and destroy him. That will He do when He is through with Him. The people in this nation have invited Satan in and he is secure within himself. Yeah, there are those of us who see/saw him for what he is. The majority would not listen.”

    * * * *

    “Look up the Communist Manifesto. Eradicating religion is one of its tenets. For statists like Obama and the rest of the democratic party, God must be eliminated so that the State becomes the new god to the people. Call him what you want — a Marxist, Socialist, Communist — he is a totalitarian at heart who is hell-bent to destroy America.”

    “You wrote, “…we could not have anticipated the extreme transformations he would seek.”

    On the contrary, a reading of “Dreams from My Father” would have made abundantly clear what could be anticipated – much like a reading of the 1920s autobiography of another dictator-in-waiting.”

    * * * *

    “One other thing about this dictator-in-the-making: There is only one type of person who would use descriptions about small-town religious people such as “get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations” – someone who intends to take all of the above (that is, guns and religion) away from them, including by force …”

    “It is shocking how radically the country has changed in just a few years. We definitely need a religious revival. Obama CANNOT win again or our nation is lost.”

    * * * *

    “And you are surprised that he is against anything that is Christian? I believe that Obama is demonic. Only someone who is demonic would insist on the initials of Jesus Christ being covered in BLACK in his presence. That is just not normal.”

    * * * *

    “That’s something that we should have figured out along time ago. When he made those statements about the bible and the citizens of small towns summed up his character and loyalty. ZERO!!!”

    * * * *

    “Obama is no Christian and he is really not an American as we perceive what an American is. He spent his life around marxist’s and atheists and is a product of that environment. He was not raised in America, he was never trained in the military, never held a shovel ready job, never went to a mainsteam church. He is a pied piper leading America down the road to hell.”

    * * * *

    “This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that anybody who still supports Obama is fundamentally stupid – and worse. Anybody who supports Obama, therefore also supports: his war against religious freedom, his war against job creators, his insidious “class warfare” strategy, his increasingly brazen (and unconstitutional) power grabs, his usurpation of states’ rights (i.e. vendetta against Arizona), his clique of Communist radicals who serve as his (unconstitutional) “czars,” his dividing this country along racial, ethnic, gender etc. lines, his agenda of economic destruction, his war on free speech, his weakening the military, and every other travesty.”

    * * * *

    “… under BIG government…” Our once great system of small government with free markets, sound currency, lots of opportunity, liberty & self reliance has turned its back on Biblical principles, embraced sexual perversions, became dependent on big government handouts, reverted to crony capitalism with an unlevel economic playing field, unsound/paper money, stifled the economy with too many rules/regulations & taken much of our liberty away (turned us into a police state). You can’t turn your back on God & head in the right direction!”

    * * * *

    “He is hostile to Christianity, the religion (even if unpracticed) of 80% of Americans.”

    * * * *

    “This process was started a long time before he entered the picture. Liberal/progs have been more and more aggressive in their deception and infiltration of our education system to create the generation of secularist zombies we have now. Everyday our kids get a dose of liberalism through the lies taught about our roots and the very things that built the country’s foundations.”

    * * * *

    “I believe Obama will lose this election by a landslide, but should the fascists pull an October surprise, declare war etc. and Obama wins. America will not be lost. True Americans will NEVER give up. We will impeach this tyrant and throw him out. We will repeal obamacare and we will begin to reign in our government…”

    “SHOULD WE OBEY ALL LAWS?”

    Walter E. Williams
    May 16, 2012

    “They said, “Resolved, That the several States composing, the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general government … (and) whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”

    The 10th Amendment to our Constitution supports that vision: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    In a word, if the Supreme Court rules that Obamacare is constitutional, citizens should press their state governors and legislatures to nullify the law. […].

    […]

    Congress has already gone far beyond the powers delegated to it by the Constitution. In Federalist No. 45, Madison explained: “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.”

    That vision has been turned on its head; it’s the federal government whose powers are numerous and indefinite, and those of the state are now few and defined.

    Former slave Frederick Douglass advised: “Find out just what people will submit to and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them. … The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”

    See The Article Here:
    http://townhall.com/columnists/walterewilliams/2012/05/16/should_we_obey_all_laws/page/full/

  77. This is a plea to anyone that understands Obamacare to please compose a summarized statement of what it is and the implications to the average citizen.

    I think most people assumed it would be doomed by the Supreme Court and didn’t really worry about it. Now that it will be the law of the land (if and until it gets repealed) we need something in writing explaining its impact on us.

    I have tried to read parts of the convoluted 2300+ pages and understood nothing. Unfortunately, I don’t think most of the legislators that passed the law could make sense of it either. There are many phases that are left entirely to the discretion of the Secretary of HHS. I have seen the 21 new taxes that will be imposed and I know the IRS will be requiring much more info on our tax returns in order to assess our personal tax liabilities. But for the most part we are pretty much left in the dark.

    The democrats are now speaking out of all the good things in the law. For example, the pre-existing conditions, no more lifetime caps on coverage, closing the donut hole for seniors, etc. That all sounds great, but no one is speaking out on who and how this will all be paid for. Adding more benefits and more people to the insurance rolls with less physicians has got to create a financial crisis and a shortage of quality care.

    Now that some States will be opting out of the extended Medicaid program and will not be setting up the exchanges for that group of people, who exactly will pay for or subsidize that group of people?

    If a company with 50+ employees chooses NOT to offer the government required insurance plans, what will their penalty be and (if no exchanges exist in their state), where do those employees go for their coverage?

    If a company with 50+ employees offers a “Cadillac” type plan of insurance, how much tax, if any, will the employee have to pay for that coverage?

    How many Doctors, hospitals in this country are still accepting Medicare, Medicaid patients?

    What impact does the $500 billion cut in the Medicare program have on current seniors?

    Now that the Government has control of healthcare, do we, as a consumer, have any legal rights for suit against medical malpractice?

    Who, what and why are exemptions given? I thought Federal law had to apply fairly and equally to ALL.

    These are a few of many questions that need to be answered and put into a summary so the voters will know exactly what is coming down the pike.

    Personally, my largest objection to this whole thing is that they took the word “private” or “personal” out of healthcare and gave it to unelected panels that will determine what is in our best interest. Anyone who has ever experienced the “HMO” type insurance knows full well, that you and your doctor have less control on your care and that the “bottom line” is all that counts. I want no part of this monstrous takeover of my personal health and medical records.

    HonorFirst, this is one of many videos on the subject of Obamacare found on YouTube. I remember an email I received, the video pointed out a list of negatives about the government taking control of everything. I will search for it.

  80. “HOW WASHINGTON REALLY WORKS”

    Ken Connor
    July 10, 2012

    “‘Pay to play’ is the way business is done in the halls of government across the country, and the problem is getting worse. The Washington Post reports large growth in major donations to politicians campaigning for congressional seats, largely funneled through massive super PACs (political action committees): “[S]ome 1,600 House and Senate candidates raised a combined $884.6 million as of March 31—compared with $685.9 million in 2008…”

    […]

    “So what are we to do? Washington’s quote points to the voters’ responsibility: We must seek out men and women of character and integrity to be our representatives. We must demand that they respect the will of their constituents over the will of their largest donors. And we must show zero tolerance for those in office who allow their heads to be turned by the lure of perks and power.”

    “YOUR CHANCE TO SEE ABRAMOFF BLOW AMERICA’S MIND WITH EXTENT OF WASHINGTON CORRUPTION”

    By Drew Zahn

    “People are under the impression that the corruption only involves somebody handing over a check and getting that favor, and that’s not the case,” Abramoff told Stahl. “The bribery, call it, because ultimately that’s what it is, that’s what the whole [lobbying] system is … it is done every day, and it is still being done.

    “The truth is there are very few members [of Congress] who I could even name or could think of who didn’t at some level participate in that,” he said.”

    […]

    “At one time, Abramoff told Stahl, his lobbying firm had an estimated 100 members of Congress in its back pocket.”

    “In his appearances, Abramoff has been warning that powerful lobbyists will now have constitutional authority to push Congress to give their corporate clients a powerful weapon to wield against competition.

    He explains that the Supreme Court decision will enable lobbyists to [now] get their pawns in Congress to regulate ordinary economic choices and that Roberts’ decision gives government the ability to tax “inactivity.”

    The underlying result of this historic Supreme Court decision, according to Abramoff, can propel an endless list of loopholes.”

  81. “WE ARE AT A TURNING POINT!”

    Judge Andrew Napolitano
    July 12, 2012

    “WE MUST REPAL OBAMACARE! SIGN THE PETITION!!”

    “And as of the last week in June, the government has a vast new power that was brought to us by the Supreme Court’s latest attack on personal freedom. Congress can now awfully command any behavior of individuals that it pleases — whether or not the subject of the behavior is a power granted to Congress by the Constitution — and it may punish noncompliance with that command, so long as the punishment is called a tax.

    […]

    How did we get here?

    We got here because voters and the government we elected, and even the courts the popular branches appointed and confirmed, have lost sight of first principles.

    When Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are a part of our humanity, and when we fought and won the Revolution under that premise, and when the first Congress enacted that language as the first federal law, this became the irrevocable recognition of the Natural Law as the basis for our personal freedom and limited government.

    Since our rights come from our humanity, they don’t come from the government.

    But you would never know that from looking at the government. In New York City, where I work at Fox News Channel, we are all embroiled in two disputes this summer over the constitutional role of the government in our lives.

    The mayor, a self-made billionaire who likes donuts and has bodyguards but wants to tell others how to live in private and in public, is trying to ban soda pop in containers larger than 16 ounces and wants the police to be able to stop and frisk anyone on a whim — and all in the name of health and safety. He is actually banning freedom.

    Imagine Jefferson being told what to eat or stopped and frisked on a whim. And then imagine the Supreme Court telling him that he must pay a tax if he fails to comport his personal private behavior as Congress — which doesn’t believe in privacy or personal freedom — commands.

    Here is how you can tell that these are bad days for freedom: Does the government need your permission to violate your rights, or do you need the government’s permission to exercise them? The answer is painfully obvious.

    Presently in America, what are we going to do about it?”

    “‘100 MEMBERS OF CONGRESS IN YOUR POCKET'”

    “ONETIME LOBBYING KING JACK ABRAMOFF NOW ON XM RADIO”

    By Bob Unruh

    “Jack Abramoff, the onetime Washington lobbyist who estimated he at one point had 100 members of Congress in his back pocket, has been working since his federal prison stint to encourage Americans to reform their political system.”

    […]

    ===> “He told WND that during his years in Washington as a lobbyist, he was able to succeed simply by playing by the rules of a corrupt system, a system he believes must be changed. It worked so well, he explained, because, “Members don’t read the bills.” <===

    Former Rep. Bob Ney confirmed Abramoff’s story:

    “I had no idea [what the obscure, coded phrases changed in the law]; I didn’t care,” Ney said. “It was a great big shell game. … I was dumb enough to not say, ‘What’s this thing do?’”

    In his book, Abramoff “outs” senators and members of Congress and sets out the details of insider deals previously unknown to most. He also sets forth a Capitol Hill reform plan that would rock the fraternal inside-the-Beltway culture.

    The scandals triggered by Abramoff led to the convictions of 20 people for payoffs in exchange for political favors, including Ney. Abramoff was released in June after nearly four years in federal prison."

  84. NARCISSIST IN CHIEF

    “THE REAL REASON OBAMA CONSTANTLY LIES”

    “EXCLUSIVE: DAVID KUPLEIAN UNCOVERS WHAT’S REALLY BEHIND BHO’S ASTONISHING DISHONESTY”

    By David Kupelian

    “For there, seated in the midst of this elegant, Norman Rockwell-esque Christmas setting, was Barack Obama, the perpetually churning and discontented radical, taking a needed break from his relentless campaign to “fundamentally transform” – that means destroy – the American way of free enterprise and free people.

    Barack Obama, the man who lies as easily as breathing – a serial deceiver regarding his birth, his childhood, his education, his influences and associations, his religion, his accomplishments, his policies, his true beliefs and his plans for America’s future.

    Barack Obama, the man whose entire presidency has been a seamless fabric of deception and duplicity, tells Barbara Walters and the American people that the only time he lies is to protect a family member from hurt feelings by occasionally offering reassurance that an unflattering dress is “wonderful.”

    “[…] When does Obama lie? Every single time he speaks to the American people.

    […]

    “Sociopathy” is a strong word, but used by many to describe Obama – not necessarily as a clinical psychiatric diagnosis, but just because the symptoms fit so darn well, as per this typical description: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do.

    They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

    A vital, creative power

    One veteran psychiatrist I know suggested a slightly different diagnosis for Obama, but similar to “sociopathy” in many ways – namely, “malignant narcissistic personality disorder.” The modifier “malignant” signifies the version of “narcissistic personality disorder” that may cross over into criminality, he explained.”

    […]

    “Here’s how psychiatrist M. Scott Peck, M.D., explains it in his classic best-seller, “People of the Lie”:

    Malignant narcissism is characterized by an unsubmitted will. All adults who are mentally healthy submit themselves one way or another to something higher than themselves, be it God or truth or love or some other ideal. They do what God wants them to do rather than what they would desire. “Thy will, not mine, be done,” the God-submitted person says. They believe in what is true rather than what they would like to be true.

    … In summary, to a greater or lesser degree, all mentally healthy individuals submit themselves to the demands of their own conscience. Not so the evil, however. In the conflict between their guilt and their will, it is the guilt that must go and the will that must win.

    The reader will be struck by the extraordinary willfulness of evil people. They are men and women of obviously strong will, determined to have their own way. There is a remarkable power in the manner in which they attempt to control others.

    As we will now see, Obama has been preparing to “control others” for a long time.”

    […]

    “During the 2008 campaign, Obama said of his years steeped in the Chicago Marxist’s revolutionary “community organizing” methods: “It was that education that was seared into my brain. It was the best education I ever had, better than anything I got at Harvard Law School.”

    In “Rules for Radicals,” Alinsky counsels wannabe revolutionaries that they must be willing to ignore the dictates of their own conscience to advance the left’s agenda:

    In action, one does not always enjoy the luxury of a decision that is consistent both with one’s individual conscience and the good of mankind. The choice must always be for the latter. Action is for mass salvation and not for the individual’s personal salvation. He who sacrifices the mass good for his personal conscience has a peculiar conception of “personal salvation”; he doesn’t care enough for people to be “corrupted” for them.

    That, friends, is one of the most twisted things I’ve ever heard. To believe it and act on it is to abandon your greatest gift, your moment-to-moment connection with the Living God – your conscience.

    Maybe that’s why Alinsky dedicated “Rules for Radicals” to “the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer.”
