Rep. Joe Wilson Was Right: Obama Has Deceived Us
IBD Editorials ^ | June 8, 2012 | HENRY I MILLER

Posted on 06/08/2012 5:43:10 PM PDT by Kaslin

He was correct. Prescient even. But one politician's invective directed at President Obama early in his administration seems to have been forgotten.

On Sept. 9, 2009, Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., received widespread attention when he interrupted a speech by the president to a joint session of Congress by shouting, "You lie!" The incident resulted in a formal rebuke, essentially along party lines, by the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives.

Wilson may have been indecorous, but he was right. And the president has continued to deceive. As the economy has failed to rebound, the president has been desperately blaming everyone but himself — George W. Bush, European advocates of fiscal austerity, and especially Republicans in the U.S. Congress.

He fails to mention that for the first two years of his administration, his party's majority in the House and filibuster-proof majority in the Senate gave him a blank check for huge "stimulus" programs and for his socialist agenda.

Supremely arrogant and uncollegial, the president, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid routinely rolled the GOP. (Recall Pelosi's extraordinary arrogance when queried about the proposed ObamaCare legislation: "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.")

Shortly after he was elected president, Obama promised substantial budget cuts.

He said officials would "go through our federal budget — page by page, line by line — eliminating those programs we don't need, and insisting that those we do operate in a sensible, cost-effective way."

He hasn’t deceived me. I knew he would do exactly what he has done.

Some of us saw the deception back in 2007. But, Wilson was right and rightly spoke up.

Last week I was at my polling place waiting to vote.

The guy ahead of me in line was wildly chatting up everyone. He seemed to have a vague sense of personal boundaries.

He started talking to me about what apparently were BO's prospects in the general election. (Note: we were voting in the state primary.) "I hear he'll win Florida, there are a lot of toss-up states, but he'll win Florida."

I politely told him I didn't want to discuss any candidates or their prospects for victory, since we were at a polling place.

He understood, and shut up.

Speaking honestly, this man was brain-damaged or disabled in some way, I've seen him in the neighborhood and he's first in line at the polling place every Election Day.

Ditto on that. I could see through Obama’s deceit the moment I laid eyes on him.

How to spot a sociopath - 10 red flags that could save you from being swept under the influence of a charismatic nut job by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor June 8 2012

http://www.naturalnews.com/036112_sociopaths_cults_influence.html

One of the more offensive duties of being an investigative journalist is taking out the trash — exposing liars, fraudsters, con artists and scammers for the people they truly are. Each time we investigate a sociopath, we find that they always have a little cult group following of spellbound worshippers who consider that particular sociopath to be a “guru” or “prophet.”

Sociopaths are masters at influence and deception. Very little of what they say actually checks out in terms of facts or reality, but they’re extremely skillful at making the things they say sound believable, even if they’re just making them up out of thin air. Here, I’m going to present quotes and videos of some legendary sociopaths who convinced everyday people to participate in mass suicides. And then I’m going to demonstrate how and why similar sociopaths are operating right now... today.

Why cover this subject? I’ve seen a lot of people get hoodwinked, scammed or even harmed by sociopaths, and it bewilders me that people are so easily sucked into their destructive influence. I want to share with NaturalNews readers the warning signs of sociopaths so that you can spot them, avoid them, and save yourself the trouble of being unduly influenced by them.

Much of this information is derived from the fascinating book, The Sociopath Next Door (http://www.amazon.com/Sociopath-Next-Door-Martha-Stout/dp/0767915828), which says that 4% of the population are sociopaths. [ONE OF THEM IS OUR PRESIDENT!] The book is a fascinating read.

10 signs for spotting a sociopath

#1) Sociopaths are charming. Sociopaths have high charisma and tend to attract a following just because people want to be around them. They have a “glow” about them that attracts people who typically seek guidance or direction. They often appear to be sexy or have a strong sexual attraction. Not all sexy people are sociopaths, obviously, but watch out for over-the-top sexual appetites and weird fetishes.

#2) Sociopaths are more spontaneous and intense than other people. They tend to do bizarre, sometimes erratic things that most regular people wouldn’t do. They are unbound by normal social contracts. Their behavior often seems irrational or extremely risky.

#3) Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process such emotions. This allows them to betray people, threaten people or harm people without giving it a second thought. They pursue any action that serves their own self interest even if it seriously harms others.

#4) Sociopaths invent outrageous lies about their experiences. They wildly exaggerate things to the point of absurdity, but when they describe it to you in a storytelling format, for some reason it sounds believable at the time.

#5) Sociopaths seek to dominate others and “win” at all costs. They hate to lose any argument or fight and will viciously defend their web of lies, even to the point of logical absurdity.

#6) Sociopaths tend to be highly intelligent, but they use their brainpower to deceive others rather than empower them. Their high IQs often makes them dangerous. This is why many of the best-known serial killers who successfully evaded law enforcement were sociopaths.

#7) Sociopaths are incapable of love and are entirely self-serving. They may feign love or compassion in order to get what they want, but they don’t actually FEEL love in the way that you or I do.

#8) Sociopaths speak poetically. They are master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running “stream of consciousness” monologue that is both intriguing and hypnotic. They are expert storytellers and even poets. As a great example of this in action, watch this interview of Charles Manson:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIfGj_55FHI

#9) Sociopaths never apologize. They are never wrong. They never feel guilt. They can never apologize. Even if shown proof that they were wrong, they will refuse to apologize and instead go on the attack.

#10) Sociopaths are delusional and literally believe that what they say becomes truth merely because they say it! Charles Manson, the sociopathic murderer, is famous for saying, “I’ve never killed anyone! I don’t need to kill anyone! I THINK it! I have it HERE! (Pointing to his temple.) I don’t need to live in this physical realm...”

Study the Alinsky model. Obama is following it verse by verse.

Obama = Marx, Alinsky, Cloward-Piven, Class Warfare, Income Redistribution, "Social Justice," "Fairness," and throw in a little Mao and voila', we have our Manchurian Candidate anti-American President.

If any Americans are so stupid to vote again for Obama, they deserve the Gulags they will get.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

The above translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010.

The Founders didn’t put a right to vote in the Constitution for a REASON.

Now that Universal Suffrage has been imposed by Constitutional Amendment over the last 100 years or so, there is no chance that this Republic will survive.

Statement of Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith Full Committee Hearing

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2893197/posts

This thread isn’t about Romney.

You can’t make it about Romney by trying.

Read this statement about JUST the Justice Depts.’ actions against the rule of law in America. Don’t even bother including the Czars, the illegal recess appts., the EPA etc., just wrap your brain around THIS.

There is method to Obama’s madness.

He’s on a mission and will use all practicable means to achieve it.

Thank you for pointing out that the thread is not about Mitt Romney. As a matter of fact he is not even mentioned in the article, but some just jump to conclusions without bothering to read the article

Excellent point, but typical of what liberals do.

Everybody, go to the library or pick up a copy of the latest book on oboma that really lets you in to the truth...just finished reading it. It's called The Amateur, by Edward Klein. Over 200 interviews, many of them with the insiders who know oboma best.

Very revealing, informative, by a reporter who knows how to report...couldn't put it down til I finished it.

I thank you for pointing that out, also.

I should know. I have a tendency to invert, convert, revert and even subvert a point in order to fry the GOPE for orchestrating the nomination of a socialist at the top of a Republican ticket.
