Obama as PionnochioCommentary & Analysis

The American people elected a community organizer to the White House and did it twice.  While in the Senate, Obama did virtually nothing.  In fact he was absent a good portion go the time.  https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members/barack_obama/400629  When elected, Obama had no clue how to conduct national affairs—we should have expected this from a community organizer with no real experience—but failed to grasp the complexity of Global international politics.

He’s good at reading from a teleprompter and making false promises to the American people, as seen in the Rush Limbaugh audio montage I posted last week.  However, when we examine what Obama has actually succeeding in doing, or not doing, it is dismal at best and a catastrophic failure as the leader of the free-world, at worst.  Let’s take a look at some of what he has done.

1. The National Debt:  Obama Has Now Increased Debt More than All Presidents from George Washington Through George H.W. Bush Combined – See more at: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-has-now-increased-debt-more-all-presidents-george-washington-through-george-hw#sthash.Y62oZq6R.dpuf This is a startling realization, one that you think would make every American stop what they are doing and call their Congressman.  Sadly, our main-stream media for the most part ignores it, and most Americans are not aware that we have built a financial house of cards, which at some point is going to collapse.

2. Shovel Ready Jobs:  During his first term, Obama promised a variety of shovel-ready-jobs that were ready to go.  He painted a bright future and promised to get our economy back on track.  A few years later Obama admitted that the shovel ready jobs weren’t so shovel ready!  http://nation.foxnews.com/president-obama/2011/06/13/obama-jokes-jobs-council-shovel-ready-was-not-shovel-ready-we-expected

In the video link above, you will see him laugh it off, meanwhile millions of Americans are on food stamps and in my opinion most of us are worse off now then we were before the ammeter took office.  http://www.realclearpolitics.com/2013/05/07/it039s_a_fact_america_worse_off_under_obama_307152.html

3. Benghazi:  Then we come to Ben Ghazi, where our ambassador was gang raped and dragged through the streets and killed.  Four Americans were brutally murdered and our Commander-in-Chief does nothing about it.  http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/01/opinion/bennett-benghazi-obama/index.html

The Media was/is complacent in covering up the events of the attack, from the American people and congress is unwilling to act to get to the bottom of it.  Meanwhile whistle-blowers are being threatened according to this article by the CIA. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/02/benghazi-attack-cia_n_3695319.html

4. Obamamess:  Then we come to what may be perhaps the biggest boondoggle in America’s history.  What I have come to call Obamamess, for surely a mess it is!  Once again the amateur assures the American people all will be well and families will save up to $2700 a year.  In reality, the government site that cost the taxpayers almost half a Billion dollars doesn’t work; and millions of Americans have lost their health care, after we were promised we could keep our policies if we liked them!  Now even some democrats are breaking party lines and voting to extend existing policies until the “mess” can be sorted out.  Not that I believe it ever will.

In closing todays post.  Obama is an amateur.  He has no real understanding of the way the free market system works, no grasp of international politics—I sided with Putin when Obama was saber rattling against Syria and almost plunged the world into WWIII—and has created the biggest national debt in Americas history.  In short, his track record reveals his weakness as a leader, who at best is a rank amateur in governing the affairs of men and women.

    Give ‘em “What ‘fer” and then give ‘em some more!

    The title should have been “Obama the Liar.” Obama is setting America Up just like Hitler set up Germany.

    I’ve come to conclusion that the same people that vote for Obama are the same people buying Mariah Carey and Lady Gaga cd’s. They can’t be helped or persuaded. We need to just move them all to California, Washington and Oregon. We could call it New Mexico. They could have the illegals from Mexico they wanted. They could even print their own money.

    I beyond politics kinda. The blood red moons in 2014 and 2015 have me excited along with what will happen with the 4 comets. I came across this video this morning.

    Three days of darkness on Nov 28th tied to a recent Crop Circle in England.

    • Jeff D said

      Interesting video for what it’s worth but seeing the AOC in the CC is a wide stretch…real wide. I do like your take on CA. though Richard.

    • John T said

      Richard, I’m not sure what to think of the three days of darkness predictions. You are correct on these people who voted for the prez. When I talk to my liberal friends, I feel like Art Linkletter talking to children. Their opinions are based on emotion or media manipulation. Linkletter had a show called “Kids(liberals) say the darndest( euphemism retained) things. That sums it up for me. They are just ignorant and need our prayers.

    • LookingUp said

      I’ve been following this site off and on for a long time and, I’m sorry, Richard, but I truly cannot remember any of the predictions you’ve shared that have actually happened. The bond collapse last April, all of the FEMA stuff that was supposed to have happened by October 1st per John Moore’s inside source. I don’t/can’t keep up with it all, but three days of darkness starting November 28th will be easy to verify. I will be happy to apologize if the case warrants.
      As far as BO goes, I am constantly having to fight the hatred that keeps bubbling up inside of me for him and everything that he stands for, but that said, Romans 13:1-3 assures us that there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. We all know God has a plan that will not be thwarted, and He uses governments to carry them out.

    • Azureceu said

      illumin not aye?

    • richard said

      The Bond Market is going to Collapse and FEMA is sitting there waiting for their go ahead from the Department of Homeland security. They just purchased over 30,000 guillotines. The satanic global elite is preparing for the financial collapse and the tribulation period. Its coming soon. My guess would be in the next two years. Im not a prophet though.

      As I told you back then when you complained I post things that I find interesting. Im not a date setter. I dont set dates.

    • Jeff D said

      “They just purchased over 30,000 guillotines” Richard, I love you Brother, but this is WAY out there. This is a goofy rumor that has been around since June. Actually it was there when W. was Pres but it only makes Bible believing Christians to be more out of touch than we want to be pictured. I am truly sorry Bro, but there is no evidence for this charge.

    • Rose from Kentucky said

      You know, I don’t think the number really matters. Why would a military post or any other federal organization have even one guillotine?

    “Heaven is for Real” Movie Trailer

    • John T said

      Wow that is powerful.

    • Gordy said

      Is there life after death? Just ask 4-year-old Colton, who emerged from life-threatening surgery with astounding details about heaven! Colton’s detailed account includes floating away, seeing God’s throne, and meeting relatives—including his sister who died in a miscarriage (and whom his parents had never mentioned). From the book, “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo. Video courtesy of CBN.

      NDE’s or Near Death Experiences – may or may not be real glimpses of heaven or hell. However, like anything supernatural they need to be tested against the specific revelation of Scripture. There are NDE’s with their interpretations that contradict Biblical teaching. For instance some people who have NDE’s meet a Jesus or being of light who reveals there are many (interfaith paths) ways to reach heaven. http://www.leaderu.com/orgs/probe/docs/eadie.html

      John.14

      [6] Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    • Great trailer! Thank you Lord Jesus for your love, mercy, and your compassion for our confusion when we don’t understand the why’s, or the pains of this world, and that you relieve our pains so that we may endure. Thank you that you know better–not us.

      Thank you Lord Jesus for never leaving us or forsaking us in times of great need.

      Love you Lord!

    • Matt said

      After watching this trailer and seeing that the kid met his little sister that died in his mother womb, makes me wonder if mothers and fathers of aborted babies will be confronted by their once aborted children? If so, talk about being put on the hot seat, wow, what would you say to them?

    • Matt said

      If someone has a NDE and sees Muhammad or Buddha what does that mean? After studying NDE’s since Dr Moody’s now famous research and books on the subject, it seems during a NDE you see exactly what your faith happens to be while alive on earth. Not many if any at all non Christian faiths who have experienced NDE’s report a Christian like experience, their experience usually falls along the lines of their own faith.

    • richard said

      Matt I have never read of anyone having NDE’s from a muslim perspective. Can you shoot me some references. I have studies NDE’s for a long time. Thanks

    • Matt said

      Richard, I will do that, bear with me, I literally have hundreds of bookmarks on that subject as well as many other paranormal interest. I will go through them, hopefully I will find a few that relates to what I’m taking about… the recent one I read about was a Asian man that was pronounced dead .He was a Buddhist and he told of his NDE experience and Jesus was nowhere to be found in his NDE…which brings me to a point, NDE’s could quite possibly be just the last throws of a fevered and dying brain. I have read there is a ketamine-like substance that is released by the body at the time of a NDE, and it attaches itself to certain neurotransmitter receptors and could possibly be responsible for producing the whole NDE by blocking those receptors.
      There is a Doctor of psychology professor named Dr. Ronald Siegel from UCLA who claims to have reproduced NDEs in his laboratory by giving LSD to volunteers…then there is NDE’s that are known to occur in a type of epilepsy …with damage to the temporal lobe of the brain, researchers have found that by electrically stimulating this lobe they can mimic some elements of NDEs….so I am really on the fence as far as committing 100% to the authenticity to NDE’s
      I understand for some people, it is easier to believe that NDEs are a real afterlife experience and not a hallucination…but I’m not looking at this in a religious perspective. I’m just trying to uncover the truth whatever that may be, if it is even possible to uncover the truth on NDE’s which I have my doubts that there will ever be solid scientific evidence one way or the other.

    • Matt said

      I cant post linkls it seems as they tend to pend…

      However, looking through just a few I came across a Dr Moody qoute ” It is true that those who report being greeted by a religious figure will usually associate that being with either the religion of their youth or one they are familiar with. Thus, most Christians will report being visited by Jesus, Buddhists by Buddha, and so forth” “Scientists say it’s endorphins; Muslims say it’s fantasy; religious fundamentalists of any “stripe” say it is Satan (Lucifer); people of faith say it is either of God or of emissaries from God; the experiencers themselves say it is pure ecstasy, love incarnate”

    “http://watchermeet-up.forumotion.com/t5142-the-pre-trib-rapture-thread-for-the-pre-tribbers”

    This is from Delfi the administrator of David Flynn’s Watchermeetup forum:

    “Hello Everyone! I’ve been watching some really neat rapture video’s by regular peeps and thought I’d post some. I’m seeing a connection between the ‘fall of America/Babylon theory’ and the rapture. So, let’s all have some fun and help encourage each other. I’m not sure about pre or mid or post but I’m keeping an open mind and heck, I just enjoy looking for it!

    “So, as this is for pre tribbers especially, please feel free to rebut elsewhere on the forum, if you really must. lol!

    “Seriously though, this thread is for pre tribbers encouragement, not debate.”

    Corey, Washington Illinois was pretty much destroyed. It is a small town, but much destruction for a strange late-season storm. Prayers to all the people affected.

    • John T said

      Washington il is near Peoria, where a vial of Pope John Paul 2s blood will be on display next week. Unrelated but interesting. Only a few churches in the country will display the vial.

  6. Azureceu said

    It is quite easy to explain the Obamamess, but what I find difficult is how do you explain the mindset of the majority of voters who elected him twice and after all this still support him? lemming effect?

    • Zombies. The blind leading the blind. Brain washed. Mind control victims.

      The “our team” effect. Or “our nation — right or wrong.”

      My #1 choice to describe them — “demon possessed.” They’re largely not in charge of their own faculties.

    • @ Azureceu: The voters and Obama are spiritually blind. There is an occult spirit permeating the White House filtering down to the American citizen.

      According to the video below with Sid Roth and Tom Horn the U.S. was not born a Christian nation but rather Freemason, building an occult democracy. In fact, according to Tom Horn’s research, there is an oath taking ceremony (ritual) taking place prior to the one that we citizens see on tv, dedicating the U.S. to the ancient spirits, like Apollo:

      In fact, George Bush donated $1,000,000 to the Freemason to carry on the occult practice (which includes Agenda 21)!

      It’s the ushering in the anti Christ.

    • Azureceu said

      I guess all in all the problem is “the people” and God appointed an image (Obama) that reflects that. If fair was fair it would be by far more productive to horsewhip “the people” who set up this image, than to horsewhip the image itself.

      Its good to be among friends that will not bow to the image. Heat it up 7 times hotter.
      If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

  7. “http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2013/11/18/google-announces-software-to-block-searches-for-child-porn/” (also bing I think)

    But I’d bet they left anime and underage teen sex.

    The emperor has no clothes.

    • Azureceu said

      Out the right side of their face they say we need to protect the children.
      Out the left side of their face they teach the children homosexuality.
      From the front of their face they say Christians are intolerant.
      In the dark they perform abortion and witchcraft.

    Coast to Coast had a good show on last night ,,it was about the Dyatlov Pass Incident:

    “Keith McCloskey joined George Knapp on Sunday night for a discussion about what happened to the nine well-trained skiers & hikers who lost their lives in the mysterious “Dyatlov Pass Incident,” which took place in Russia’s northern Ural mountains in 1959). The autopsy reports claimed the victims’ violent injuries were due to “an unknown compelling force.” Something or someone caused the group to flee from their tent in panic, as they used knives to slash their way out, and headed out into subzero temperatures insufficiently clothed, most of them without shoes. Their bodies were eventually found on a mountain slope known as Kholat Syakhl which translates as “Mountain of the Dead,” McCloskey recounted.

    Some of the victims had massive internal injuries but no external marks were found on them, “as if they’d been in a car crash but nothing had hit them,” he said. McCloskey pondered various theories that have been presented over the years to explain the group’s fate. He eliminated some explanations from serious consideration such as an avalanche (location was not at the right angle for that), wild animals (no signs of tracks or bite marks), and robbery gone bad by the local Manzi tribe or escaped Gulag prisoners (valuable items were left in the tent).

    He couldn’t rule out the possibility of some kind UFO-related cause, as anomalous light orbs were seen in the area on the night of the incident, and there were strange burn marks on trees where the victims were found as though some type of energy beam had focused on them. Perhaps the beams were initially directed at their tent, he suggested. Further, McCloskey uncovered a possibly related episode in 2002, in which a night foreman at a mine, about 100 miles from the Dyatlov Pass, encountered an intensely powerful beam coming toward him in the forest.

    • Say Matt, that’s an interesting Error. Mainly because of the slide down the side.

      Please describe what string you posted?? (or tried to post) Thanks!! =-)

    • Nevermind… clearly you posted a youtube link. Works good now.

      Seems the PTB’s want to mess with postings.

    • Phyllis S. said

      Matt,

      Thanks for posting the video of Dyatlov Pass. I read about that horrific incident maybe a year ago but this video showed a whole lot more of the bodies. I can’t imagine the terror they must have felt. It was the most bizarre thing I think I’ve ever read about. One thing —it wasn’t human–the last “beings” they saw right before they died.

    • Matt said

      I agree Phyllis S……the bodies had radiation, hair turned completely white, the organs inside completely destroyed …..I mean what does that?

    • Rose from Kentucky said

      It sounds like they were attacked by some sort of energy weapon.

    • Rose from Kentucky said

      Here’s the last sentence of Coast’s recap for the show:

      However, McCloskey thinks the most likely explanation is some type of Soviet military accident shrouded in secrecy– he noted that the criminal case involving the skiers’ deaths was opened a week before their missing bodies were officially found.

      Very interesting.

    The Colonel posted this on Dave Flynn’s forum this morning and it is very relevant to us:

    “Structures, Serpents and a Lake in Antarctica [video]

    “We’ve seen images of the pyramid before, and now we know there is much more to Antarctica than we were previously permitted to see. I don’t believe the Nazis would have spent so much time and money exploring and setting up camp at New Swabia if there weren’t significant benefits to be had.

    “In this video there are unmistakable structures, ruins, serpent-reptilian type sculptures, a warm lake, and what may be more pyramids. There is no dialogue to this video to explain, however, and some images are very pixilated.

    “Most of the music is dreadful so you may want to turn your sound off. I had to do that to get through it.

    “I DO appreciate seeing what the cabal has been hiding from us though.”

    Here is another great one from the Colonel:

    “Giants in South Africa – by Michael Tellinger

    “Professor Francis Thackeray shows Michael Tellinger and friends the rarely seen part of the upper leg bone with hip joint of a giant that would have stood about 12 feet or 3,5 metres tall. This bone has been in the vaults of of the medical school at WITS University, Johannesburg since the early 1960s, when it was found by miners in a mine in northern Namibia. It is one of the most precious and rare specimens available today that clearly indicate the existence of giants in Southern Africa more than 40,000 years ago.

  13. barack Hissssssein obomba, the Low Info President. I have a very, very low opinion of anyone who voted for this person twice, and an even lower opinion of anyone who voted for him more than twice. But, in my part of flyover country, they are very hard to find, or they wont admit it.

  14. I wrestled here for a while trying to think of something I could do that would actually be loving toward the likes of Kim Jong Un or Barack Obama. That’s after asking (prayerfully) what I could do … and getting an immediate response, “Owe none anything but love.”

    I know better than to pray for “sins unto death.” So this required some soul searching. What would Christ really consider loving our enemy? Especially a Hitler, or a Stalin, or a Mao…. or an Obama.

    And the only answer I have so far is “forgive him” … “remit his sins.” I’m happy to say I can do that. But for the Grace of God, there go I.

    As I am forgiven by God, so I forgive Barack Hussein Obama / Barry Soetoro his sins, by Christ’s yielding to bloody torture and crucifixion — as more loving than the alternatives — and as He’s forgiven me, so I remit Obama’s sins.

    • Azureceu said

      Much sin to be remitted so little time.

      That’s good nomemoleste, better then letting bitterness fester inside you. Many years ago I held a grudge against someone that did something very deplorable to me…I held that bitterness inside me for two whole years.., then one night it was like God showed me a movie, it was like I was watching it play out before me.., he showed me that this person had move on with their life and wasn’t even aware of the pain they had caused me…he also showed me the bitterness I was holding inside me was causing me sickness in my body , through the stress and mental anguish I was holding onto..then,,,get this, he asked me to call this person, someone I hadn’t spoken to in years, and ask them to forgive me for anything I may have done to THEM!! .. as well as let them know that I forgive them for what they had done…..ummm at that point, I denied it was even God that showed me these things. Oh yeah, I had a hardened heart about it all and thought well, perhaps that’s wasn’t God, he may have got his wires crossed with someone else praying?? Well, God doesn’t call wrong numbers so as much as I didn’t want to do what I was told ,,, I begrudgingly obeyed him and made the call,( I was worried what would happen if I didn’t :) It quite honestly one of the hardest thing as I had to do…but I need to tell you something weird that happened when I made that call…after asking this VERY surprised person I called out of the blue to forgive me if I ever hurt them, then telling them I forgive them for what they did to me…. As I hung up the phone it seemed the whole room I was in turned completely white, I fell to my knees and felt this enormous weight lifting off my shoulders, I cant explain it,,, I literally felt as if I was dragging hundreds of bounds on my back and I could spiritually feel it lift off me…the bitterness was completely gone, I felt free and no longer miserable and stewing in my own self absorbed acidity. That was pretty amazing and not what I had planned or expected , I tell you, when non Christians tell me being a Christian sounds boring I say nothing could be further from the truth, God has a way of making life interesting and is full of surprises, to me there is never a dull moment.

    • Wow! Matt. That opens the door for tons of blessing and hope for others.

      Comparing notes then…I had a bit of epiphany tonight.

      Watched a vid with captioning for the blind enabled. Basically the scene cues are read — such as descriptions — and facial expressions. When I did catch the expressions, there’s a lot of facial nuances that seem “highlighted” (unusually) in the sense of seeming very exaggerated to me as they’re described. In think my perception is tweaked up by the verbal cues.

      I’ve been looking for a kind of therapy for my aspergers and this looks promising. Even if it makes the show seem a bit robotic. ( … which reminds me of Shields and Yarnell, but that’s a different story. )

      Suffice it to say that as a “pinocchio” (a wooden aspie guy) wanting to be “human” this has been a very surreal day. :oops: (and blog)

      Much to ponder and experiment with…. (not to mention deadpan, dry wit, and highbrow humor) :grin:

      Who’d a thunk a service for the blind might also help with “social blindness!?”

      Thanks much(!) for the insights, Matt. Our Maker has a surprising sense of humor!

  15. Isaiah 42:18-43:7

    18 “Hear, you deaf;
    And look, you blind, that you may see.
    19 Who is blind but My servant,
    Or deaf as My messenger whom I send?
    Who is blind as he who is perfect,
    And blind as the Lord’s servant?
    20 Seeing many things, but you do not observe;
    Opening the ears, but he does not hear.”
    Israel’s Obstinate Disobedience

    21 The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake;
    He will exalt the law and make it honorable.
    22 But this is a people robbed and plundered;
    All of them are snared in holes,
    And they are hidden in prison houses;
    They are for prey, and no one delivers;
    For plunder, and no one says, “Restore!”

    23 Who among you will give ear to this?
    Who will listen and hear for the time to come?
    24 Who gave Jacob for plunder, and Israel to the robbers?
    Was it not the Lord,
    He against whom we have sinned?
    For they would not walk in His ways,
    Nor were they obedient to His law.

    25 Therefore He has poured on him the fury of His anger
    And the strength of battle;
    It has set him on fire all around,
    Yet he did not know;
    And it burned him,
    Yet he did not take it to heart.

    (43:1) But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
    And He who formed you, O Israel:
    “Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
    I have called you by your name;
    You are Mine.

    2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
    And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
    When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
    Nor shall the flame scorch you.

    3 For I am the Lord your God,
    The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
    I gave Egypt for your ransom,
    Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
    4 Since you were precious in My sight,
    You have been honored,
    And I have loved you;
    Therefore I will give men for you,
    And people for your life.

    5 Fear not, for I am with you;
    I will bring your descendants from the east,
    And gather you from the west;
    6 I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
    And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’
    Bring My sons from afar,
    And My daughters from the ends of the earth—

    7 Everyone who is called by My name,
    Whom I have created for My glory;
    I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
