From the post –
I'm sure you remember Palpatine. He was that Star Wars character that spent years in the Galactic Senate, pretending to be a good galactic citizen with the noblest of intentions, eventually rising to the position of Chancellor and invested with emergency powers. In reality, he was an evil Sith Lord, whose goal was to eliminate the Republic and replace it with a Sith Empire.For those who disagree with the president I can see how all signs would point to # 1. And while I am no fan of the president and am hoping that—unless that GOP nominates a complete nutcase—he does not get re-elected, I just can’t believe that he is evil…misguided and way too confident in the ability of government to solve problems maybe, but not evil.
Why bring him up here?
Well, I've been reading a book called The Manchurian President. It is an interesting read, but I will save you the trouble, if you like. It is little but long and meticulous documentation of how Barack Obama, since he was a small child--since birth, really--has been born to, raised among, influenced by, worked with, worked for, been associated with, favored by, etc., etc., etc., an assortment of communists, socialists, hard-leftists, and Islamist radicals. It is not conjecture. The information has been pulled largely from newspaper accounts, newsletters and magazines (like the Trinity United Church of Christ's Trumpet) and personal interviews.
Many of these people come from organizations where one of the chief tactics is what is termed "boring from within":--joining the established system with the express goal of working from within to undermine and demolish it.
Now, I suppose you can believe one of at least three things:
1) Barack Obama has come from a background of anti-capitalist and anti-America-as-we-know-it thugs, risen to the presidency, and is deliberately trying to crash the system so as to replace it with something else, which would be perfectly consistent with his friends' and acquaintances' ideology and tactics, or...
2) He has played along with all these people since he was a boy, waiting for the right opportunity to betray them all, or...
3) He has somehow fit right in with all these people for decades, yet has absolutely no clue what they're about, or what he's doing, for that matter.
What do you think?
Oh an before anyone jumps my stuff, I did jokingly compare President Bush to Palpatine, in the way that he and his administration were collecting and hording power into the Executive Branch—powers now being used by the Obama administration I might add—but I never said that the man was evil or trying to destroy the country. You can see those posts here and here.
