Obama Spent Most Of Yesterday Telling Lies

President Obama had a big day yesterday. He spoke to a group of young Asian leaders who are part of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. These young leaders were subjected to the President's propagandizing but I wonder if they realized it. Most likely they did.

President Obama began by telling them that he had restored the world's respect of America since he's been President. Really - he said that.

"People don’t remember, but when I came into office, the United States in world opinion ranked below China and just barley above Russia," Obama said. "And today once again, the United States is the most respected country on earth, and part of that I think is because of the work we did to reengage the world and say that we want to work with you as partners with mutual interests and mutual respect. It was on that basis we were able to end two wars while still focusing on the very real threat of terrorism and to try to work with our partners in Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s the reason why we are moving in the direction of normalize relations with Cuba. The nuclear deal that we are trying to negotiate with Iran."

I'd sure like to know where he's getting his information. Who is it, exactly, that has gained this new respect for us? Russia certainly doesn't respect us. Putin shows less respect for Obama and the US than Bill Mahar shows for God. He does what he wants regardless of Obama. He invaded Ukraine and recently has been flying bombers off the coast of Alaska. Yeah - that's some respect.

China doesn't respect us. Take a look at what's going on in the South China Sea right now.

Iran doesn't respect us. They laugh at us and at the nuclear deal that Obama believes will happen. They agree to a deal then say "But we're not going to abide by it," and Obama and Kerry pretend that the Iranians respect us. There is no country in the world that thinks the nuclear joke deal is a good thing - except Iran. And that's because they're going to get major benefits from the US for making the deal without sticking to the agreement.

So which countries are the ones who respect us now? Do you have a list, Mr. President?

Mr. Obama went on to tell these young leaders about his alleged political principles. But those of us who have been paying attention found ourselves scratching our heads in wonder while listening to his words.

“One of my core principles is that I will never engage in a politics in which I’m trying to divide people or make them less than me because they look different or have a different religion,” Obama said. “That’s a core principle, that’s not something I would violate.”

“Unfortunately, too many politicians, they’re just climbing the ladder but they don’t know why, and when they get there then they’re not very effective leaders,” he explained.

“That’s when you lose your way, right?” Obama said. “You have to be willing to lose something for your principles, you have to be willing to lose an election.”
President Obama is trying to lecture other politicians about being effective leaders? Really?

Barack Obama studies Saul Alinsky while in college. Saul Alinsky was a radical community organizer who wrote a book called "Rules For Radicals." Among these rules are the following:

*Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.

*Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

*A good tactic is one your people enjoy. They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more.

*Keep the pressure on. Never let up. Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

*If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive. Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.

*Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

This is exactly what President Obama has been doing. He has been dividing the country racially, economically and politically. Racial tension in this country is as high as it was in the late 60s. The Obama administration has demonized law enforcement, making them out to be racist murderers based on a few incidents (most of which turned out to be the opposite of what the Obama administration put out). He sends White House delegations to the funerals of black criminals and all but ignores makes some minor comment about violence when police officers are assassinated just for being cops. His comment following the Professor Gates incident in Cambridge, Massachusetts, soon after he took office seems to be his philosophy for police departments nationwide: 

"I don't have all the facts but the police acted stupidly."

He pretty much said the same thing following the Michael Brown shooting, which ended up making him look bad since his hit man Attorney General could find no evidence of police wrongdoing in the case following and extensive effort to do just that. 

Obama's Justice Department became a wanna be lynch mob under Holder. After President Obama waded into the Trayvon Martin case ("If I had a son he would look like Trayvon.") Eric Holder tried everything he could do to find some fault with George Zimmerman - even opening a Zimmerman hotline for people to call with any possible information that could be used against him in a civil rights case. It was an unprecedented attempt to railroad someone who was found not guilty of the charges that Holder wanted to level at Zimmerman. Holder failed in his efforts but that didn't change the fact that he tried. 

The President lies about the economy, saying the unemployment rate is down to 5.4% when in reality it's over 11% and nearly 93 million people over the age of 16 are not participating in the work force. The unemployment numbers are a sham.

Obama is really good at ridiculing the enemy (the Republicans.) He blames Republicans for anything and everything, when he's not blaming George W. Bush. He takes no responsibility for anything negative that happens on his watch. 

The Obama administration has more people on food stamps and government assistance today than any administration in history. With so many people out of work, government assistance has climbed exponentially. Forty-seven million Americans are now on the food stamp program. That's nearly double the number at the beginning of 2008. Obama blamed Bush for the rising numbers after he (Obama) took office but now, six years later, the economy, unemployment and the unprecedented number of food stamp recipients is on him. And his lies become evident simply by looking at factual information.

Alinsky said "If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive." 

The Obama administration feels the same way about lying. If they tell the lie enough times people (including them) begin to believe it. It's been that way since the beginning of Obama's Presidency. His mouthpieces - Robert Gibbs, Jay Carney and Josh Earnest, all have the amazing ability to lie with straight faces and to make up lies as they go. The position of Press Secretary has lost all integrity under the Obama administration. 

President Obama has spent his entire Presidency dividing the American people. It's something at which he excels. Anyone who is paying attention knows this. But once again he lied. He lied about America's standing in the world. He lied about his "core principles," and he lies about pretty much everything else. Sadly, the main stream media no longer employs journalists. You know - the ones who used to hold Presidents accountable for their words and actions. Main stream journalism joined the Democrat party in 2007.
