I can't see the image on the left in your comparison, but this part in the article is an attention-grabber:

It shows a stern-faced President Obama superimposed against the backdrop of a massive crowd. At one point, Sharpton displayed a graphic reading "Taking Control."

Daniel 8:23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.

Or as the NIV has it,

"In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise.

Stern-faced king = melek az-panim:

Az-panim is literally "strong of face" (or even metaphorically "goat-faced" if you investigate the etymology a bit), but more importantly, it is idiomatic Hebrew meaning "insolent, brazen", which naturally leads us to

Definition of AUDACIOUS

a: intrepidly daring : adventurous
b: recklessly bold : rash
2: contemptuous of law, religion, or decorum : insolent
3: marked by originality and verve

— au·da·cious·lyadverb
— au·da·cious·nessnoun

Synonyms: arch, nervy, bold, bold-faced, brash, brassbound, brassy, brazen, brazen-faced, cheeky, cocksure, cocky, fresh, impertinent, impudent, insolent, sassy, saucy, wise

>>contemptuous of decorum<<

looks like a good description of flies that would land on a person's face. No wonder they would be attracted to a face of like disposition.

One other thing kind of stands out [in the verse]. The KJV "dark sentences" and the NIVs "intrigue" are chidot (riddles, puzzles, enigmas). A good example of use is in Judges 14.

The POSOTUS sure seems to enjoy word games because he is constantly twisting and debasing the language to deceive anyone who desires to be fooled. It started with hope and change...

Very interesting word/scripture research. Fits well.

Before Hope and Change, there was The Audacity of Hope...
