Hitler didn’t waltz into Berlin sweeping up jews as he went along. It was a slow process that took years. It was two years until jews weren’t allowed to vote. Then another couple before the ghetto and yet a few more before the camps.

So the maniac doesn’t have to act like a serial killer on steroids to be a maniac.

I expect a crisis to come that is beyond all our imagination and will be the reason and excuse to do whatever the maniac wants. I believe he is a muslim. I had suspected it, but the treatment he has given Europe and Israel along with the sycophant routine with the Muslim countries, not to mention the attempt to kiss the ring of the “Keeper of Mecca” which has been the tradition for thousands of years for Muslims (I don’t think it was a bow, I think he was reaching for his hand and leaning down before he heard audible gasps around him and woke the hell up) proves it to me.

Just my opinion though.

"There is thus a logic to the left's willful blindness. Why the literary right has accepted this charade continues to baffle me."

The left has the fifth column enemedia as their hourly propaganda slave, so any opposition is instantly shut down with ridicule and typical leftist condescension such as we read from Chrissy 'hissy-fit' Matthews. The left lie as easily as they breathe, so not surprisingly, any opposition to Obowma/Ayers collaboration will be lied about by Ayers, Obowma, and the entire press corps which serves the lie, any lie they are fed from the left. Axelrod is their current feeder, and he uses a layering of lies to accomplish the dissonance needed in order to promote an affirmative action figure fraud. Until 3/4 of the media is 'shot against walls of outraged populace' (that is a metaphor, for the idiot gov't workers monitoring FR), the plummet into the disease of socialism will not be halted.

Barack Hussein Obama is so thorough a fraud, so well constructed from whole cloth, that only protection by the Roberts subpreme court and selected liberal fools on federal benches can prevent his being exposed and shamed.

The cult of Obowma is a very carefully crafted one by a master at the game of 'astro-turfing', which is a purposed form of deceit. David Axelrod has studied the effectiveness of certain behavior manipulations and concluded that his boss or bosses can benefit from manipulating the masses. It is a sinister approach to herding godless people seeking some god they can grasp hold of and believe they will be 'protected'. Ultimately, whom do we know is the father of lies, a murderer from the start? That's right! Obowma is a test case for the coming anti-christ.

It is interesting to note the effect that studying men like HItler has had on Axelrod ... David has tried, perhaps unconsciously, to look like Hitler even down to the little brush of a mustache. Axelrod has studied the mild mannered version of Hitler when being interviewed and applied that persona to his own Axelrodesque sessions of lying for his master. If anyone doubts that, merely consult the Youtube record of Axelrod floating ever enlarging lies to cover the facts on the Obowma/Ayers connections.

Hussein is a “Confidence Man” of the highest order.

In the good, old tradition of revolutionaries, Obama hides in plain print.

On p. 94-95 of his autobiography he describes an effective tactic to deal with White people:

“It was usually an effective tactic, another one of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied; they were relieved - such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn't seem angry all the time.”

In reality he is much like Alger Hiss according to this author:

http://spectator.org/archives/2008/04/22/the-alger-hiss-democrats

Coldly courteous, and condescending.

IMO, he showed us who he really is when he instinctively genuflected before the Saudi King.

Obama has NO love of the United States, and he will (hopefully) be caught in the act of disloyalty.

“Ayers seems consumed with lies, lying and what he calls “our constructed reality.” The Obama of Dreams says much the same and in much the same language. “But another part of me knew that what I was telling them was a lie,” he writes, “something I’d constructed from the scraps of information I’d picked up from my mother.”

Will this be his ‘out’ when his BC is finally exposed? We all know that Obama is comfortable with lies....he tells them all the time!

Thanks for the ping.

What I still don’t understand is how he can “read” a speech and sound so convincing, charismatic and speak with such conviction while off script he sounds like a bumbling fool. (Please note that I think he’s tedious, boring and scary. Just an observation as to how others perceive him.)

If he’s such a learned person, why does he speak differently without Totus? I do believe he’s been programmed to hypnotize his followers.

“merely consult the Youtube record of Axelrod floating ever enlarging lies to cover the facts on the Obowma/Ayers connections.”

So far, not so successful searching obama axelrod ayers. If I add “ever enlarging lies”, I don’t expect successful search. What happens if I spell it differnt (sp),? Obowma (sp)?

I do find, however, your take on the Hitleresque mustache as being observant, and most likely, highly insightful.

Who feeds the speech materials? Who is the conduit? The triple phrase unsupported by verb thing is getting on my nerves.

Whether it comes to anything, I have enjoyed Cashill’s writing on the possibility that Ayers wrote “Dreams.” I hope he pursues this, enlarges upon it, perhaps even novelizes it. It’s like a very good essay on writing style with a conspiratorial edge.

Why Bali? Not that I'm saying it's like Russia (remember Clinton's sojourn to Russia?), but why Bali in particular to write your book?

Bali is a dream vacation spot with very nice beaches and very few telephones/interruptions. There’s a substantial Hindu majority there, and it was a very popular Australian vacation spot, though the local Muslims have worked hard to screw that up.

You could always blame the “tingle” in Matthews’ leg on diabetic nerve damage. He was diagnosed with diabetis way back in early 2002 and didn’t pay attention until late 2006. (Sarcasm intended, but please note that the info about the idiot was contained in the last two issues of “Diabetis Health”)

Need I remind you of the mess that Trudeau, also a Harvard Law School grad, left behind in Canada, and then have you ask that question again? Trudeau stepped down as leader of the Liberal party in 1986 and Canada is STILL cleaning up the mess. I mentioned prior to the election the many similarities between Trudeau and Jr and very few noticed. Since the election those similarities were only written about and appeared at “The American Thinker” all I can say is be very afraid.

Ann Dunham was in Bali at the time when Jr and Jackie wannabe went there so he could “write undisturbed”. There are pictures of her taken in Bali around that time period on the Anthropology website of UH at Manoa.

That triple-spittle is purposeful ... the speaker expects your mind to put the three together in the way comfortable for your psyche. It is a most dishonest way to communicate, but effective in herding half-wits like worship Obowma (and clinton before him).

A google search of 'Axelrod on Ayers' used to turn up at least three youtube shorts, each having a new lie Axelrod told to deflect questioning reagrding Ayers. He started out making the vague 'perhaps they met because their kids attend the same school', which is of course an absurdity from Axelrod since he knows Obowma's kids are deacdes younger than Ayers' kids. Then he moved to the tried and tr5ue 'oh, he's just a guy who lives in Barack's neighborhood, not far away ... I think they may have done a bit of baby sitting for the Obama's.' That evolved into 'they were on the same board of directors, but they were not close.'

Axelrod uses a layering process of lying in ever growing boldness, approaching the truth but never reaching or going too close to it. David Axelrod and his henchghouls are professional liars.

I might add that Democrats and the presstitutes actually admire such lying. Remember how worshipful Matthews was when sinkEmperor told bold lies like ‘I want you to listen to me now. I never had sex with that woman, Ms Lewinsky’? Clinton was so bold as to wag his finger in our collective faces as he told that whopper, and Chrissy MAtthews was smiling so braodly and fawning so completely, you could just see the dampness forming in his slacks as the tingle played his leg!

This is James David Manning in what is possibly his worst condemnation of Obama that I have witnessed yet. You are probably familiar with Manning, the black preacher who says the only way to stop him from telling the truth about Obama is to kill him. He has said numerous times that he is ready to die if necessary to expose the truth about the “white trash” president we have elected.

I think the uncertainty of his own paternity is at the root of this character.

Wasn't Hitler also an illegitimate spawn?

the internal tension within the man must be centrifugal and ready to break out at any time. Yet by all accounts he is cool under every circumstance. Either our armchair psychoanalysis is faulty or Obama is headed for an explosion.

Those of us here on FR with well-developed intuitions sensed fairly early that this was a man who might be brought down by his own demons, and not finish his term in office.

I will simply state that I believe that he will have a "medical problem" that will require his leaving the presidency.

Outstanding analysis, and prose nb!

I know Ayers wrote that book. There has never been a doubt in my mind. If you have read them both, it’s so obvious it’s ridiculous. Why did they send him to the South Pacific? Figi wasn’t it? It’s very odd they would reneg on the book deal because he was lazy and didn’t write it after he was paid to do so, then he cons them into saying he needed to go to an island to write it. Who paid for those months on the island and where was Ayers at the time?

“where his mother was already preg before she ever left the Seattle area...and this Kenyan guy was simply some poor sap that got into this game for odd reasons.”

I agree up to this statement, and I do believe Zero is son of the Kenyan Obama. Why? Because of the history of the Obama family. Raila Odinga ,(Obama’s cousin PM of Kenya now), who lost election and had to take a brokered deal by Kofi Annan, UN to get PM is son of the Odinga Odinga who was President of Kenya 40 yrs ago and was trained in Russia (communism) to lead Kenya. Also, Obama is only 6% Lua tribe, and the rest is Arab + white on mothers side. Raila is very black, but has other Lua blood on mothers side probably. It is fitting to be following his uncle’s and father’s marxist ways as family Obamas do. The family history explains his ambitions today, as he is trying to overcome the shame of his father.

As for birth certificate, it will hopefully be exposed.
