The Great and Powerful Obama

Posted by revkharma on January 23, 2009

Fire boiled upward, and smoke belched amidst the flames as his voice boomed ” I am the Great and Powerful Oz! You will do as I command, and I will reward you!”  Unfortunately as we all remember from the classic film, little Toto scampered forward, and pulled back the curtain, revealing the lost, and quite ordinary travelling medicine show doctor operating the levers.  Despite “Oz'” telling them otherwise, the adventurers in the story looked, and finally exposed the secret of the Wizard. No matter how much smoke, flame and deception he used, he was not a spectacular wizard, merely a side show huckster with a knack for deception.

“If you are a Washington lobbyist, you will find no home in the Obama Administration! We are all about Hope and CHANGE, and we will not work with the usual crew of lobbyists and insiders!”  Or, so we were told by the Great and Powerful Obama.  A quick look at two of his recent high level appointments points more toward the carnival than the wizard.  William Lynn III, tapped to take the second highest spot in the defense department was a paid rep for Raytheon until this past July.  William Corr is now put forward as the deputy secretary at the dept of HHS. He has worked until the end of last year as a paid consultant for anti tobacco groups. Both have pledged to ” not work in areas in which they previously lobbied”. In the senior positions they will take, there is little chance of that actually being true.

Note also, the flurry of Executive Orders, including the Big News that he will honor his campaign promise and close Guantanamo Bay Prison within a year. Look closely at the details. IN order to close the facility and relocate all those held, he must first find out where to send them and how they will be dealt with. Another executive order directs a commission be formed to determine exactly how this will be accomplished.  So, in fact, his executive order merely restates his campaign promise, with no concrete plan of action to achieve it.  “Don’t look at the man behind the curtain…I am the Great and Powerful Obama!”  The media watch needs some  attack dogs, to pull aside the curtain, and expose the side show barker. Unfortunately most of the media are lap dogs, not even up to the daring of  Dorothy’s little dog Toto.  We have to continue to work to expose this fraud, and perhaps hold their feet to the fire. Mr. Obama will be our President, at least four years. He should be held to account, and perhaps then can actually achieve some of the Hope and Change his believers are so certain he can bring us.

As always

Keep The Faith!

 

Ted, I thank you for your comments below. Let’s address them a bit here. The whole issue of Barack Obama’s citizenship has been put to rest. Here is a pretty good analysis of the entire issue.

If we allow ourselves to become distracted by side issues we will never be able to focus on those things of real importance. Obama won because the alternative party simply offered nothing of any value to the American people. Mccain offered much of the same socialism, but with less charisma and at a slower pace. This, unfortunately, has been the hallmark of the republicans for many years.  They offer the same interventionist policies, only just a bit smaller. The Republicans lost. They will continue to do so until one of two things happen:

First, they wake up grow a spine and some courage and retake their legacy of leadership and small government. OR

Secong, they fade out as the Whigs and the Democratic Republicans before them did, and they are replaced by a new party.

As to the issue of the oath of office, many people much smarter than I have put that to rest. The oath itself is a formality, the power changes from one president to the other at noon on the 20th by constitutional provision. If we want to return to basic constitutional principles, we must not get bogged down in minutia. We must hold LOCAL elected officials to account, and begin working from the ground up. I appreciate your passion, and hope you will continue to work to right the country.

The Rev.

    Take the test.

    FIRST QUESTION: Who IS the actual and lawful 44th President of the USA?

    ANSWER: Joe Biden

    Biden was initially the Acting President for at least 5 minutes under either the Constitution’s Article 2 or the Constitution’s 20th Amendment, from 12:00 Noon 1/20/09, having already taken his Oath of Office and before Obama completed his ‘oath’ at approximately 12:05 PM, 1/20/09. Under the 20th Amendment if the President-elect shall have failed to qualify, or alternatively under Article 2 if the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term, being 12:00 Noon 1/20/09, which ability and/or qualification includes that he take the Article 2 oath “before he enter on the execution of his office,” then either the Presidency shall devolve on the Vice President under Article 2 or the Vice President shall act as President under the 20th Amendment. (The importance of the oath in ‘commencing’ an ‘Obama Presidency’ — rather than merely the 1/20/09 Noon time — is confirmed by the re-take of the ‘oath’ by Obama at the White House on 1/21/09 after the first ‘oath’ was NOT administered by Justice Roberts NOR recited by Obama in the words as required under Article 2.)

    This is significant because at such time that the Supreme Court finally rules on the merits on Obama’s disqualification as not being an Article 2 “natural born citizen” (clearly he is NOT), Biden’s automatic status (without needing to take a separate Presidential Oath) of being President would be predicated upon four different bases: First, having been Vice President under Article 2; second, having been Vice President-elect under the 20th Amendment; third, having been actual President in the hiatus before Obama took the ‘oath(s)’; and fourth, retroactively deemed President during the full period of the Obama usurpation so that the acts of the Federal Government under the usurpation can be deemed authorized and/or ratified by Biden’s legitimacy.

    SECOND QUESTION: Who will be the 45th President?

    ANSWER: Hillary Clinton

    One must assume that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been aware of all of the above. Biden’s wife recently “let the cat out of the bag” on the Oprah Show that both Biden and Hillary had considered alternatively Veep or Secretary of State, in either case, setting up Hillary to be President on a vote of the Democratic Congress if need be.

    THIRD QUESTION: Is Obama an unwitting victim of this troika or a knowing participant?

    ANSWER: Yet undetermined.

    Obama is smart on so many levels for ordering the closure of Guantanamo. It has been a long time coming

    Coffee,
    Smart is not the same thing as good, nor effective. Granted, President Obama is smart. He’s a political engineer of the highest order. He is able to convince many people that he is addressing their concerns while he continues to do only that which he desires. He continues to dupe America (with the great assistance of a willing Media) and to accomplish nothing while creating a great cloud of smoke which appears to connote work. We can only hope that enough good Americans can see through the smoke screen before it is past time to stop the Obamamachine.
