Nothing beats giving incentive to yourself and to others to help keep strong more than giving and receiving affirmation. However, in the case of Sen. Barack Hussein Obama (D-IL), the Democratic presumptive Presidential nominee, that would be like "shouting encouragement to the bull in the (proverbial) china shop."
Nevertheless, we continue to watch as America and the world seem to be perched over Obama to hand the world over to him and he is definitely determined to snatch it -- whether we or he is ready or not.
Since Obama came onto the national and international political stage, he has proved himself to be both bullheaded and full of bull. And, as far as incentive is concerned, he, his adoring fans, and the MSM have given him more than enough affirmation to plunge America and the world into the depths of Hell.
There is no mystery here. There is not even a secret closet filled to capacity with any unleashed plans. All of it is out in the open and America and the world, in general, are sleepwalking through the already exposed reams of Obama documentation from every part of this world into the waiting arms of the United Nations in New York City.
While the pundits and professional journalists continue to publicly and privately puzzle over Obama's quick rise in "stature," he continues to advance to the Oval Office on the wave of their ongoing, roaring adoration and his own recent self-congratulatory publications.
The media have lost their journalistic objectivity in this election year. They are playing with the political news coverage as if it were their own to manipulate and twist and spin as it pleases them. Instead of doing their job to investigate Obama and report on what is behind his so-called meteoric rise, they have -- to their shame -- collected their salaries and advanced their own suppositions and opinions as his apologists. And they fault the world-wide web for being the incubus of grassroots political commentators. They sit smugly in their studios behind their "sacred desks" and sneer at the bloggers who, in many cases, have uncovered and reported actual breaking news.
Have reporters been pundits so long that they have forgotten that Americans are intelligent enough to know that they need to have substantial information to be able to make informed decisions about Obama and his quest for the highest honor in America -- the Office of the President of the United States and that it is not a position to be taken so lightly? Have they lost touch with history so much that they have ceased to respect government and set themselves up as the arbiters of what is good for the American people? Do they even realize the part the Fourth Estate has played in this devastating crush of societal morals, mores, and traditions, and the rise of societal ills?
Do they understand that they used to bring on their guests to inform the public? Instead, they now invite guests to be quiet while they (reporters) try to advance themselves and run out their miniscule time clock. Are all the journalism schools mad? Equality for equality's sake is ludicrous. We demand the very best that America has to give instead of the bull that we are being fed daily, as truth.
Our elections are not intended to be beauty pageants. Political contenders are not wholly judged on their looks as contestants or on their ability to perform or not perform as celebrities.
In reality, there is plenty of confirming documentation to show that Obama is reaching out towards his being the leadership of this meglomaniacal planned "people-power," one-world of peace at any cost. And he is egotistical enough to drop kick America and stand her up for the love of the axis of evil.
Obama has refused to give Americans any unqualified indication that he is prepared "to preserve, protect, and defend this nation, so help me God." If anything, his responses on the world stage ought to remind all of us how much he is willing to say and do anything to plow ahead on his bull.
My advice is, if people really want to know more about Obama, they should first start from the standpoint of Godly prayer that is not lightly given to some old nebulous, one world, diverse god, but to the true and living God who has "brought (all of) us thus far along the way."
And, from there, Americans must all become proactive instead of being reactive. They need to go to their library, search out bookstores, travel the world-wide web and neighborhoods, and pay close attention, because the answers are all there waiting for them.
My late mother used to say, "If you don't know (something), you'd better ask somebody!" And I have learned that just because I don't know a thing doesn't mean it does not exist. It is just that I had not yet come across it. It is a big, big world out there and the people (beyond race, creed, color, or national origin) are not altogether walking in lock step or chained or silent.
People who have already done their homework have sounded the warning about the radical takeover of America by militants decades before this 2008 election and Obama's appearance.
However, until now, we probably thought the most we had to be concerned about were the secret cells of Islamists, and the black muslims, black nationalists, socialists, communists, Marxists, atheists, the Nation of Islam, homosexuals, and various other factions waiting within our country and throughout the world for their signal to come forth against world-wide Democracy and this Republic to overthrow the century's old constitution of the United States.
Many questions have been asked about Obama's agenda of "change" and "hope," directly to him; and, yet, they have remained unanswered by him. Nevertheless, many of those questions have already been resolved because of healthy skepticism.
Those skeptics include people who are in the know about the Obamamania. And, in this technological age, they have no need to reprint their damning indictment of Obama's spurious claims to be able to occupy the White House, based on his quest to become the first black man to be elected President without him having any other qualifiers. Those indictments remain in place for all to see -- especially by those who have to see a thing for themselves before they would believe it.
Serious online research reveals the strong, overarching primary role his wife, Michelle, has played in his initial decision to enter the political race. She is not simply a little, helpless woman who is standing on the sidelines and, therefore, is not to be "attacked" by the media or anyone else. But, that is just more of the Obama bull.
Like her husband, Michelle Obama is a shrewd attorney, community organizer, activist, educator, businesswoman, parent, and, herself, just as capable as he is of running for President. Uhhhh. Moving on.
When Americans begin to understand the weight of all of those multifaceted organizations that are connected to the Obama machine, which did not just become formed at the outset of this campaign, then there would be no surprise about how all of those masses of people have gathered to be on hand for all of Obama's "star-like" appearances. Nor would they have to scratch their heads over where all the money is coming from to support his dizzying political advance.
In Obama's case, it is not so much about "what you know as it is who you know." And he knows a lot of politicos, lawyers, and academic professors from the elite set of which he and his wife also are proud members. Moreover, many of their best friends and their friends are those that feed the bull to get Obama moving towards and, into, the White House with the keys to the nuclear "football."
And, do we really need more lawyers to circumvent our constitutional rights that are being watered down daily by those in the legal profession from down in the streets up to the Bench? I say no.
We need to follow German Chancellor Angela Merkle's lead. The Obama camp no doubt thought she would be a pushover, because she is a foreign woman leader. But, it certainly did take that strong woman in leadership to smack some sense into him on foreign shores.
Obama turned his back to Americans and became a "citizen of the world," even as he tried to represent America on foreign soil. But, Chancellor Merkle did not hesitate to shut the Brandenberg Gate in his arrogant face. And that was the symbolic slap heard around the world. Then she consigned him to a position to speak from "the Victory Column," located in Germany's Tiergarten Park. That is where Hitler placed it and, as such, it represents the remnants of the Hitler regime and remains somewhat as a symbol of what need never have to occur again at the hands of men without there being harsh punishments meted out to the despots. And, as has been demonstrated so many times, nobody need ever again be misled into blindly following behind any charismatic man or woman who is full of deadly bull -- much less an entire nation.
Chancellor Merkle's slap hit Obama so hard in Germany that he still felt it and remembered it when he went to France. Both nations have reportedly called him the black JFK, but we beg to differ. Even if Obama was white, he still could not match the late President John F. Kennedy -- not in this world nor the next.
So, there he stood with France's President Sarkozy and he did not hesitate, this time, to let the world know, also, that he is not the President of America but that he is a Senator.
And, because Obama is known to get ahead of himself before he completes what he has started, Americans and, particularly the United States Congress, have to stay five or six steps ahead of him.
America has remained strong as a nation, because Americans have understood there has to be a leader with substance and one who is trustworthy, dependable, and Godly. In other words, character matters! And, in the end, more often than not, Americans have always done the right thing to help keep America strong and as the leader of the free world, without shame, fear, or apology.
Dear Reader, Do not be misled. Do not be dismayed. Get up, move out, and get yourself informed. You've got a job to do come November 2008, to elect the next President of the United States.
