That’s Weird?… Forbes ‘Manchurian Candidate’ Article on Obama Disappears Down the Memory Hole
Gateway Pundit ^ | March 25, 2012 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 03/25/2012 9:59:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Earlier today Forbes posted an excerpt from the book Hope Is Not a Strategy by John Mariotti and D. M. Lukas. The author provided an excerpt from the book for the article where he describes Barack Obama as a “manufactured candidate” whose history remains sealed. Mariotti then calls Obama the “Manchurian candidate.”

But, after the article was posted for a few hours it suddenly disappeared down the memory hole.

Here is the article which was posted at Courage in America blog before it disappeared.

“There is something very wrong when the sitting president refuses to divulge huge pieces of information about his background. What is he hiding? Maybe the “birthers” were a little extreme, but is there something wrong with this “manufactured candidate,” whose history remains sealed from public view? What is he hiding?

Could the “Hawaii birth certificate” be a forgery? Is there something much worse—like “sponsorship” by an unnamed special interest? I don’t know. I do know that the man in the White House now is an imposter. The only question is which kind of an imposter: an incompetent “pretender” or a genuine phony, a “Manchurian candidate,” who is a liberal, ½ black and ½ white, and an obvious Muslim sympathizer.

Will this campaign expose him as the imposter, and the pretender his behavior has revealed? Will it expose his hidden history and murky background. We know about his failures and mistakes.

For those who don’t, here is another in this series of revealing excerpts from Hope Is Not A Strategy: Leadership Lessons from the Obama Presidency.

Excerpt from the chapter: Beware the Pretender:

…”No matter how many times President Obama refers to the “problems he inherited,” he has now been in office three years. Certainly many of the current problems can be traced back to events that happened during the eight years that Bush held the top office, and some can be traced back to even earlier presidencies — but far from all of them.

Many of the problems are newly created (or made worse), and Barack Obama owns them. Candidate Obama stepped up and essentially said, “I want the job, and everything that comes with it” by running for president. After three years in office, the problems now belong to him and his presidency. He caused them, made them worse, or didn’t solve them. Either way, they are his now.

…In leadership, you cannot “pretend” to be a leader. You either are — or you aren’t — a leader. One or the other will become apparent very quickly.

If you want the leadership job, you must step up and take full ownership of it. A “pretender” or “poser” is like an actor who has learned all the right lines, but has no idea what they mean. Once the script has been followed (or deviated from), the actor is clueless about what to do next. This is the job of the leader.

Unfortunately, in this government, the “directors” often seem clueless, having learned in academia where results and wins/losses are theoretical, or in politics where success (at getting elected) is more a matter of rhetoric than results.

If you are not ready for a position, or do not believe that you have what it takes to rise to the challenge (or clean up the mess even if you believe it is not your mess), then do not take the job. This was Barack Obama’s fundamental mistake. He grossly underestimated the difficulty of the position he was running for, and overestimated his preparedness to actually do the job. Just because he could “talk a good game” (thanks to a phalanx of speech writers and the omnipresent teleprompters) does not mean he actually knew what to do or how to do it. The presidency of the United States of America is not a place for heavy OJT (On-the Job-Training)….”

After the first three plus years of the presidency, it is painfully clear that Barack Obama was a “pretty face,” and “glib speaker” and a lightweight liberal politician with a community organizer/radical background. The American people should be outraged at this man’s behavior and even his candidacy. Why are they not? Because of the misinformation delivered by sympathetic liberal/mainstream media who loves his nonsensical form of governing.

…”Obama’s perceived preparedness for the presidency is a terrible delusion, from which it is difficult to escape. Mistakes build upon each other and result in even more complex problems. Difficult problems that are mishandled become even more difficult to fix. When you have too little experience, lack substance (other than the words of your latest speech), then leading, managing and problem solving simply don’t happen. And that is what has occurred. When you compound the problem by surrounding your self with like-minded theorists, lacking in real-world experience, things become worse yet. The theoretical solutions to problems often don’t work due to the messiness of the real world — and the reasons are almost unfathomable to these rookie executive/politicians. …”

What should Americans think about this “imposter?” Will he divulge his true background so we can all see who he is and where he came from — really? If not, is this just a man who should never have been sworn into the office of President in the first place, and who has crippled Americans miserably during his term?

Will we continue to believe his misstatements (the politically correct term for lies)? Can he simply use the media to “erase and forget the past three years of misery and missteps?” Or will we learn from his imperialistic behavior and terrible results and throw him out in November?

If Obama wins there will be marxism and the end of the constitution. If Obama loses there will be race war and class war and blood in the streets, house to house wealth redistribution. Farakhan and NBP are already calling for it.

"No matter what happens in November, this probably won't end up well. "

IMHO, we won't even get to November before chaos gets to something analogous to DefCon 5.

The tipping point will be when the black panthers, inspired by dear leader, kill Zimmerman.

“Hope is not a Strategy” is a great slogan against the Obama admin.

“I hope that I win the lottery to pay my bills”, it not a good idea. Electing a President with the same philosophy is not a good idea either.

The American people should be outraged at this man’s behavior and even his candidacy. Why are they not?

I'm outraged, as are millions of other Americans. We're Mad as Hell and want the Manchurian Candidate voted out on November 6th.

And yes, it's a disgrace we sitll don't know:

1. The Original Birth Certificate - Yes, the absolute original, examined and certified by three independent forensic experts.

2. Please produce your Columbia University transcripts.

3. Please, your original Columbia thesis paper.

4. Please produce your Campaign donor analysis requested by 7 major watchdog groups

5. Please produce your Harvard University transcripts.

6. Please produce your Illinois State Senate records including your voting record.

7. Please produce your Illinois State Senate schedule.

8. Please produce your Law practice client list and billing records/summary.

9. Please produce the locations and names of all half-siblings and stepmother.

10. Your complete Medical Records (we've only seen the one page summary released so far). Have you had drug tests done? Are you still using coke? Please, your liver function tests to clarify alcohol abuse. Have you had an AIDS test?

11. Please produce your Occidental College Transcripts. Also, any records of student aid received and under what names(s) and nationality.

12. Please show us your Parent’s original Marriage Certificate.

13. Please produce your record of Baptism.

14. Please produce your Selective Service registration records (Did you actually Register for Selective Service? Why is the 19 missing from the date stamp? Why is the date of the stamp earlier than the date of the person's signature?) Also, why does your Social Security number, 042-68-4425, not pass E-verify?

15. Please provide us with schedules for all trips outside of the United States before 2007.

16. Please produce all Passport records for all passports, US and otherwise - before the scrubbing.

17. Can you show us a list of your scholarly articles?

18. Your SAT and LSAT test scores please. Did you even take the SAT and LSAT?

19. What's with no access to your grandmother in Kenya?

20. Please list of all campaign workers that currently are lobbyists.

21. Please produce Punahou grade school records.

22. Why are Noelani Kindergarten records are oddly missing from the the State of Hawaii Department of Education?

23. Please produce page 11 of Stanley Ann Dunham's divorce decree.

24. Why did you, President Barack Obama, resign from the Illinois bar and where are all of the relevant documents?

25. Why did Michelle Obama resign from the Illinois bar after only about four years of practice and where are all of the relevant documents?

Why are these records hidden? Who are you President Obama? Will these records be revealed before November 6, 2012? We the People care about our country deeply and are very concerned about a POTUS who has hidden every scrap of information about his life.

The voting public deserves to know these answers. We have many more questions, but please answer these first to show your transparency and good faith. We'll keep passing this list on until we get some answers.

What else is he hiding and Why?

The answer to the question you raise is simple. The congress and president are really a club, a fraternity, a clan, almost a gang. Once you become a member, they all protect you. Have you noticed how seldom any active member gets censured and kicked out?

Look at B.J. Clinton’s case. He committed perjury in a court of law, yet the senate refused to throw him out. If you or I committed perjury, our azz would be in prison.

the birth certificate is a red herring. ALL it proves is where, kinda, the person is born... and when

which solves 2 of the three requirements to being 35 and a natural born citzen.

the one part NO ONE has addressed is...

EXACTLY HOW can someone be a natural born citizen... without BOTH parents being citizens of the country??

if that is not a requirement... then any anchor baby with 2 mexican parents can become president

That's what I thought it was at first. Thanks for the follow-up ping.

"No matter what happens in November, this probably won't end up well."

After the earthquake here a year ago, while the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima reactor complex was ramping up to its apex, I had this eerie, intense and prolonged rise in my fight-or-flight instincts. Not exactly a feeling of panic, but rather one of supreme wariness and of being ready to jump in the car and flee south (you don't stay and fight radiation) away from the plume, if it headed for Yokohama and environs.

I've had a similar feeling of late, especially since March 1st.

I've got a bad feeling about this.

The bigger story is one that even the Forbes article wouldn’t cover. Just imagine what would happen if Forbes told the world that Arpaio’s posse found probable cause for forgery and fraud involving both Obama’s long-form BC and draft registration - and reported it on the same day that Breitbart suddenly died and Rush received a bomb scare - but the press won’t report it because Soros operatives threatened the media heads with FCC/FTC annihilation (and the media companies followed up with threats to the careers, lives, and families) if they or any of their guests reported on the eligibility issue.

IOW, Sheriff Joe is now saying there’s not just smoke but fire. And the media has known at least since October of 2008 that there’s not just smoke but fire because that is when they were first held hostage by George Soros over this very issue.

This is what the posse has confirmed.

Anyone with a modicum of reasoning skills and access to the Internet before the election, knew that Obama was a complete fraud. An unknown backed by anti-American power brokers.

I said it was a communist coup back in 2008.......the state run media has held their magic mandingo's mud, what is truly scary is no one in the alternative media has the BALLS to broach this subject. The pussies waited and waited and now it's becoming too late. The noose is tightening......the threat matrix is in place. Hard tyranny is here. Wasn't it obvious to anyone with 3 brain cells to rub together what would be the outcome here?

All the so called opposition voices will be off the air <----see Glenn Beck etc. The jack boot is here.

When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

25. Why did Michelle Obama resign from the Illinois bar after only about four years of practice and where are all of the relevant documents?

According to Snopes, she didn't resign but changed to inactive status. Apparently this procedure allows a lawyer who is not practicing to pay lower bar fees and avoid continuing education requirements, while keeping open the door to practice later. IIRC Snopes also said that Barack Obama did resign his law license.

In re the Illinois Bar and the Obamas:

It is accurate to say that both accepted inactive status rather than face inquiry. Quite common for lawyers who take a step too far.

In Michelle's case, it was Insurance Fraud and it was apparently mitigated by her ignorance of a client's actions. In Barry's case, he was challenged by another lawyer on the grounds of an untruthful application (He denied ever having used another name ....an "alias." Conveniently ignoring the Soetoro and the Dunham handles on record. Although it wasn't mentioned, he also denied traffic violations and drug use. And now, there's the SSN kefuffle. all rather significant "gaps" in the legal game.)
Michelle should have less trouble "reactivating" than Reggie Love's boyfriend.
