Jarrett: Obama Isn't Going to Debate Government's Role, 'Progress Is Compelled by Action Right Now'
The Weekly Standard ^ | Jan 22, 2013 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 01/23/2013 5:57:41 AM PST by Texas Fossil

And Obama's advisor (Jarrett) went on to compare the current president with Abraham Lincoln.

"I think you can't compare the Civil War to what we're going through," she said. "But we've been through a really tough time in our country. And seeing how Lincoln had to work so hard just to make the progress that he did, how he never gave up, and how resilient he was, and [how] he tried a whole range of different strategies. And I think obviously that resonated with the president. And so it kind of reaffirmed what he already knew, which is you have to be resilient. you have to be determined. And you can't lose your focus, you can't get distracted by short-term political interests."

Jarrett Compares Obama to Lincoln...

--

Remember it was Lincoln who suspended the constitution and during the Civil War. The Left is trying to provoke a response to justify such action to destroy the Constitution totally. They are trying to redefine the reality of what the US is.....

FUBO!

Such a skewed view of history.

First, Jarrett comparing the civil war with a brief recession (Fall of 2008 through June 2009) is laughable. Second, thinking that the civil war sets any precedent for action to lift a fallen economy is a joke.

This term is going to be ripe for the rise of several new leaders on our side. Whether it is one of our sitting governors,Rand Paul, Rubio or others.

I kinda agree -- but I think his supporters are delusional about where this is heading.

Whats particularly galling about Obama’s gang of marxist thugs is their low opinion of our intelligence.

Constant Talking Points now ALWAYS equate Obama with Lincoln, but in reality, Lincoln was God-Fearing, open, and truthful.

NONE of those traits exist in the Mulatto Messiah, and his Executive Orders, end-runs around Congress, and trashing of the Constitution don't pass the smell test.

Second, it's all about the "poor, down-trodden blacks (which is how Lincoln is viewed by blacks, as having "freed them"), when blacks now are used as tools of Dem's to keep them living off others, dependent on Government handouts, and having lived for 4 generations on Welfare.

Any blacks who feel their entitled to something-for-nothing can look to Africa to see what blacks accomplish on their own, without whitey intervening.

Get real, Amerika.

Never forget that they WANT a civil war.
It gives them an excuse to fulfill their leftist hearts’ desire - to use the power of the state to murder their political opponents.

What is Fascism?

-- a sense of overwhelming crisis beyond the reach of any traditional solutions;
-- the primacy of the groups, toward which one has duties superior to every right, whether individual or universal, and the subordination of the individual to it;
-- the belief that one's group is a victim, a sentiment that justifies any action, without legal or moral limits, against its enemies, both internal and external;
-- dread of the group's decline under the corrosive effects of individualistic liberalism, class conflict, and alien influences;
-- the need for closer integration of a purer community, by consent if possible, or by exclusionary violence if necessary;
-- the need for authority by natural chiefs, culminating in a national chieftain who alone is capable of incarnating the group's historical destiny;
-- the superiority of the leader's instincts over abstract and universal reason;
-- the beauty of violence and efficacy of will, when they are devoted to the group's success;
-- the right of the chosen people to dominate others without restraints from any kind of human or divine law, right being decided by the sole criterion of the group's prowess within a Darwinian struggle.

-- Robert Paxton

Obozo is the Liar-in-Chief and he serves the Father-of-Lies.

All who support him do so by default.

In the case of Jarrett, simply look at her background. She is a very active player and gives Obozo orders from his true master.

She is said to be fluent in Farsi as I have heard Obozo speaks.

I hate it when supposedly educated people can't form a sentence.

Say that reminds me. If you haven’t seen “Downfall” I highly recommend it. You can watch the full movie on Youtube.

That’s all right, we’ll debate government’s role for Obama. Since the government chooses to ignore us, we will ignore them.

She also forgot to mention Mr. Lincoln’s [at least] partial responsibility in the deaths of nearly 3/4 of a million US citizens.

Or maybe she did that purposely?

So if Barky is like Abe, does it follow that Moochie is like Mary Lincoln?

The only thing public enemy #1 and Lincoln have in common is they both worked towards the destruction of State’s rights and greater and blatantly unconstitutional Federal power.

In all other respects, PE#1 is unfit to have his name mentioned in the same sentence as Lincoln.

The arrogance of PE#1 and his minions is galactic in scale. There not enough “Janitor In A Drum” to clean up after this obomination leaves office.

Valerie Jarrett translated: “President Obama’s plans for the country are so important that he cannot be fettered by that old document called the ‘Constitution’ and ‘Bill of Rights’. Don't the American people know he's only got so much time to turn America into a communist utopian state? He can't be bothered by such minor considerations.”

Thanks for the graphics.

That magazine cover needs it’s own post.

It is the essence of this assault.

Terminal Arrogance, Ignorance, Lawlessness and evil.
