Skip to comments.Obama's Fate
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?
Makes sense to me.....
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.
Very Scary !!
I hope he’s right and feel he is, but who knows? And what will trigger it?
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.
What caused the Arab Spring? The fall of the Iron Curtain?
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.
I’d like to see his “fate” behind bars or seeking asylum from his muzzies buds.
I have learned you can’t muse on some issues, lest it gets deleted. so lets just say, for those who think its only Obama who wants to turn us into a Marxist state, you’d be mistaken.
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.
Part of it was rebellion by the oppressed.
The ODS is thick with JR Dunn.../ S
I'll take the behind bars, no asylum for the creep.
