Obama's Fate
American Thinker ^ | February 12, 2014 | J.R. Dunn

Posted on 02/12/2014 1:04:11 AM PST by neverdem

It's no surprise that Barack Obama's authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping's powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha's Vineyard and Hawaii.) The sole question that remains is how anyone can deny it.

Obama comes by his attitude toward government honestly enough. Just before the 2012 election I published a piece here at AT analyzing Obama's political background. He spent most of his formative years in Indonesia, exposed almost exclusively to the influences of Indonesian culture -- Islam, mass public corruption, and a political system based on two-fisted authoritarianism. Obama's political heritage is rooted in the postwar Islamic strongman role pioneered by Gamel Abdul Nasser, the leader of Egypt from 1953 to 1970, and then refined by numerous other such figures, including Achmed Sukarno and Mohammed Suharto of Indonesia.

Sukarno was a colorful leader who controlled a populist coalition of the military, the peasants, and the intelligentsia (among them a powerful communist party), through a three-ring political circus in which the main attraction was Sukarno's never-ending one-man battle against the West. After nearly two decades of this, the country was in serious danger of going into the dumpster -- Sukarno had pulled Indonesia out of the UN and was kissing up to the Chinese, in the process turning ever larger sections of government over to the local communists. This lost him the military, always a mistake...

At last? Hasn't this dip stick's authoritarian streak been showing for, oh let's say, close to 6 years now?

A very good article.

Obama’s scary, but what scares me even more are the fools who think he’s doing just fine and think they should fear conservatives instead.

Well. The author was brave to write this piece, and AT to publish it. Every word of it is true, though I’m not as sanguine as to how far Hussein might try to go.

The author says something minor will trigger an avalanche upon him. He mentions some possibilities but if I’m reading right it’s Divine Intervention he’s depending on. Could be.

Obama has only one fate. Most people have not taken notice of this fact. I am an historian, soon to be published later this year. I have taken the last seven years to study what was in our Founding Fathers brains when they came up with those three most wonderful documents.

My study has given me the perspective as to how deeply George Washington understood his Oath of Office. He took special care to devise the formula by which all presidents would follow as they were "inaugured" as the executive of our country. He laid out the Oath carefully because he wanted to pull down as many blessings from God as was humanly possible. He also warned presidents following him about the seriousness of the Oath in his Farewell Address.

The Oath of Office is a solemn oath. It specifically and solemnly calls on God to witness the event. And because God can not be witness to a lie, if he is forced to witness the person's deceit, that person brings down curses upon himself.

By design Obama lied to us and forced God to witness this lie. The lie was that he had absolutely no intention of fulfilling his Oath. And as a result he incurred curses upon himself that he can not rescind.

Obama's fate is that he is cursed.

Because of Obamacare, Obama is already seen as a loser, a buffoon. And then there are conservatives, who see him as evil.

Bad things have to actually happen, for liberals to come to any conclusion. You know, the donkey and the two-by-four.

The 2014 mid terms perhaps? Obama has destroyed his party, and this November they will be able to quantify the damage.

The Furies will be unleashed. In the same way that an avalanche is unleashed by a mere footstep, events will spin out of control, impossible to stop or direct. The forces have been building up for years. Eventually, they will burst forth. When that happens, there will be nothing human that can stop them.

Let me help. Whoosh!

It doesn't make sense to me. Mr. Dunn says stopping this megalomaniac will not be by revolution or uprising. He would have us believe that the dictator will be overpowered by public opinion or civilized opposition. No chance in hell of that happening. What is going on now is real and it is for broke. What are all the sniper rounds for? What are all the AKs for that are being bought with taxpayer dollars? They are for the dictator's own foreign Muslim brothers. Why is bringing ‘asylum’ terrorist sympathizers in by the tens of thousands. He needs his advance force in place to turn the AKs on Americans. Ah, but won't the military generals stop him? Ask yourself why is he firing the patriots in the key military positions and installing his own kiss ass generals?

for those who think its only Obama who wants to turn us into a Marxist state, you’d be mistaken.

And the ones who control obama and the msm are erecting fascism on a global scale. For instance, one ofhe first thing the libyan rebels did, before they even won, was create a central bank. It's important to keep an eye on the puppet masters, not just the jibbering puppet head in front of a teleprompter.

“Obama’s scary, but what scares me even more are the fools who think he’s doing just fine and think they should fear conservatives instead.”

Well what scares me more is that incompetent bunch of fools, that we call Congress, who are to busy lining their own pockets, who allow Obama to rule as a constitutional abusing Dictator and can’t be bothered to stop him. We are in serious trouble as a country and no one in power seems willing to do anything about it.

Citizenship is a valuable commodity. The founders did not envision that someone could become president one day having been raised in an Anti-American cultural environment; anti-Americanism can be in the form of adversity to the culture, the business climate or the people. In the past Americans put anti-Americanism into either conduct or political ideology; Obama exhibits those and more but under the banner of the modern Democrat party’s leftist wing where in Chicago they created not only politicians, but a news organization under a black woman to further legitimize their platform through mainstream TV. Everything to come out of Chicago on a National Scale has been corrupted or in flying in the face of common sense. Obama is a product of his formative years overseas, communists in his family, and the Chicago political-medial complex.

“All this is supposed to happen when Obama does two things: calls off any new elections and declares martial law. The kindest thing we can say about this thesis is that it was worked out in ignorance of the actual political and legal mechanics. (e.g., there is no provision for “calling off elections” or declaring martial law in federal statute. Obama would have to appeal to Congress for the first and the state governors for the second, in neither case with hopes of success.) We must not take counsel of our fears.”

There’s not a provision in the federal statute for a lot of things he’s done and it sure hasn’t stopped him.

Obama's political background: He spent most of his formative years in Indonesia, exposed almost exclusively to the influences of Indonesian culture -- Islam, mass public corruption, and a political system based on two-fisted authoritarianism. Obama's political heritage is rooted in the postwar Islamic strongman role....AND by Chicago criminal political kingpins who he brought to the WH.

Obama is clearly a class-conscious warrior, empowering gays, socialists, and Muslims....for the express purpose of achieving Islam's Holy Grail: (1) eradicating Western civilization, and, (2) decimating Christianity.

Obama and Hillary created a bizarro US foreign policy---dedicated to elevating the Muslim Brotherhood using OUR tax dollars. Obama's quirky sideshow----a gay drumbeat, and act after act of self-made melanin "victims" whining....and collecting govt checks.....as assorted grievances multiply. As usual, Obobo is on the wrong side.

2008 primary candidate Hillary (and Bill) had pics of Obama in Muslim dress---but Uncle Tewddy warned them not to use them.

Obama's half-brother Malik holds up photo of Obama in Muslim dress.

================================================

Obama tells us we should "trust" our government to do the right thing.

DOES OBAMA MEAN THIS GOVERNMENT?

Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development;

Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council;

Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference;

Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC);

Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA);

Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

“By design Obama lied to us and forced God to witness this lie. And as a result he incurred curses upon himself that he can not rescind. Obama’s fate is that he is cursed.”

Excellent analysis.

In Greek mythology, one who swears an oath before the gods and breaks that oath suffers the wrath of the furies, also named the Erinyes. A false oath is considered an act of self-cursing. The furies will descend upon the oath-breaker with rage and torment and make him die in agony.

I pray we see the results of that curse before our country is beyond easy repair. I'm afraid we have gone too far in trying to eliminate God from our lives and that we, as a nation, will need to see just how bad life can be because of it.

Can't wait to see your book on Amazon!!

There's not a provision in the federal statute for a lot of things he’s done and it sure hasn’t stopped him.

That was my first thought as well. None of Obama's initial violations of the Constitutional limits on his authority have met any opposition so far, and the gelded "Republican" led House has proved itself more impotent and irrelevant with each new breach. By their continued inaction, the Legislative and Judicial branches are forfeiting their co-equal status with an unopposed Executive - which may eventually dictate as fait accompli.

Mr. Dunn places a great deal of faith in the selfless virtue of a corrupted majority that has already breached the voluntary limits of a constitutional, representative republican government. I am less optimistic that freebie addicted voters will lose their taste for ever-increasing amounts other people's money. Until it runs out, that is, and a strongman has to restore order. Make no mistake for whom those billions of ammunition rounds are intended; they are not for foreign enemies.

My sincere question to Mr. Dunn is this: In whom resides the actual power to enforce the Constitutional limits upon a runaway President? Not the theoretical procedural authority bestowed by a piece of paper, however revered - but the sheer, brute power to enforce those limits.

Actually, Obama is cursed and "appears" to be just fine.

What Obama did was to "dis" the Holy Spirit. That is a huge no-no and it is the unforgivable sin.
