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 worselike sponsorship by an unnamed special interest? I dont 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 dont, 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 didnt solve them. Either way, they are his now.
In leadership, you cannot pretend to be a leader. You either are or you arent 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 Obamas 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 mans 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.
Obamas 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 dont 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 dont 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?
I screen captured that article is anyone wants it.
If this guy gets a 2nd term, with no fear of another election, all bets are off. Stock up plenty of ammo & food supplies to defend yourself. Occupy your house could be the next project.
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.
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.
It might not be such a mystery Bill O’really gets outraged by the most minor of things Obama does..
almost totally ignores Obamas most heinous and outrageous acts..
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you need only threaten to report me to the Admin if I dont add you to the list...
(This thread is not a duplicate)
“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.
[ Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping! ]
Damn thats a hard job.. there are so many bonifide conspiracy’s in this administration..
Its hard to keep up.. its not whether there are some conspiracy’s its keeping track of all of them..
Some are stand alone and some are related and there are probably some conspiracy’s “we” don’t even know of ...
Maybe the American People are fully generally as corrupt as the federal givernment is..
Occam’s Law demands this to be so..
No doubt America is indeed the New Sodom.. can salt be far behind?..
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.

12. Please show us your Parents 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.

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?
Actually, not to nitpick, but DEFCON 1 is the highest level.
Isn’t it peculiar that not one of these 25 items has ever been mentioned by a GOP congresscritter?
Whose side are they on?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Maybe I'm weird because I ONLY thought (and continue to think) of him as a commie, community organizer.
Yes, especially the Freshman Tea Party congressman, now sophomores. They must get a big dose of, "Well son, let me show you how things are done here." . . plus they learn to "play ball" to get appointments, pork, etc - all corrupt. Fire em' all in November!
Excellent work LucyT. Put it up on Twitter, and my website.
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
Hmmm... to the scrubbing. It’s not like we haven’t seen this before...but a book? lol
2DV: “No matter what happens in November, this probably won’t end up well.”
The facts are now inescapable....BUT we Americans are nothing but resourceful. Any many of us know we have a higher appeal beyond a tin-pot dictator (and it’s not SCOTUS).
FYI: See post 8 for one thread linking the Forbes article.
Don’t miss LucyT’s cache of the Forbes article itself in post 15 (before it TOO is scrubbed). Nice catch LucyT!
And, finally, the first FR thread linking to the Forbes article:
Not looking forward to November.
Not looking forward to November.
Used to get hate mail here when we posted or commented on this sort of thing.
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.
I read the article yesterday..was surprised it was on Forbes. Thought police must have been up late/early.
W called the MinuteMen ‘vigilantes’. Zero called the New Black Panthers and offered a few thousand black men of is own for the Posse.
...900 FBI files on leading Republicans...
Only Shep Smith have I noticed on Fox...can’t stand Shepard.
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.
I would like a copy. Is it something you can Freepmail?
I just went to Google to search for the article. They had a link, which didn't work of course, but I saw no indication that they had cached whatever it was that caused them to report the link as a search result.
Ignore my last comment...I just read the article at Google Cache.
Obama is not going to win.
He will lose in a landslide.
Soros is a corrupt, wicked, bitter, power lusting codger.
He best repent and get right with Jesus!
Hard to do when you seriously believe you’re God, as Soros does.
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.
I guess John Mariotti won't be a contributing editor at Forbes anymore.
When you do a search on Forbes, under Mariotti's name, the title still comes up. But, when you click on the article, linky no takey.
Damn thats a hard job.. there are so many bonifide conspiracys in this administration..
Nully's ping list is a high-volume list. Scads of articles every day. Haven't seen anything like it since the Clinton Administration, which was also fraught with deceit.
It’s never too late until the last breath is taken. Even for someone as wicked as he.
"And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
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.
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.
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.
I didn’t recognize Soros without his glasses...
