~ THROUGH HISTORY, some people live a whole life in a few decades: the dead-at-35 Mozart comes to mind, along with many of the great and accomplished through history. Obama has much to be humble about– for a self-anointed political Saviour, he’s accomplished little of note in 47 years, aside from his 143 days in the Senate. As we’ve said be fore, he IS old and experienced in the ways of communism, political subterfuge, showy hypocrisy, soft-fascism, and.. to put it plainly.. evil. As such, he fits well in the Democratic mold: the progressivist fascism of the early 20th century is his inheritance and pattern, as transmitted through the soft-fascist 1960’s rebellion of the hard Left. He’s really done so very little in his life of noticeable goodness, and yet it all seems like he’s been preparing– and been prepared– to become the most extreme Left soft-fascist President ever seen, since FDR and Woodrow Wilson. The Left see this as a kind of revelation, utopia-rising, a chance to fulfil the civil rights hope of the 1960’s, and the old statist dream of an America United by government force and ideology.

Like other would-be populist dictators of the past, Obama has a remarkable confidence and opinion of himself, for someone who has done particular nothing of note, and what he has done, never very deep or very prolonged. Ask his slum-dwelling brother in Kenya; or the kids waiting for his promise to build that African school; or the people living in the slum he headed up. After all, there is no substitute for experience, and no better proof of character and skill. Obama’s main sustained job has been.. as a candidate. Since he’s busy concealing the concrete details of much of his past, we presume nothing more. Perhaps those who back him want a weak figurehead, so they can pull the levers and make the policies; and/ or perhaps the Clinton Crime Family hopes he’ll flame out, and they can step back up in four years. Dunno. But there’s a world shadow-puppetry, and a very deep stink around this guy, and not a little whiff of brimstone. People of good will who love freedom– on the left or right– had better pray, work, and hope that this bad man does not gain control of the most powerful nation in the world, and the only one which represents and fights for freedom worldwide.

Keep track of the Real Obama (and his nasty Missus) via the website of the same name, to which I fling links and such every day. It’s an education.

~ ELECTION-FEVER? Are Canuckis soon? Probably. But whether we do or not, let’s all beware of a strain of perfectionism in modern politics whic hampers and cripples the Left and Right. Leftoids like to attack countries and people and policies and politics due to their supposed flaws and foibles– because, of course, we should only vote for perfect people, or perfect countries– or leftwing politicians. On the right, the fact that PM Harper is now a cautious Ottawa politco willing to ignore the SoCons he still expects to vote for him– well, there’s not much to expect from a minority government in any case.. he needs a turn at the helm and we need to remind him to ease up on the soft-totalitarian control and secrecy, no matter if he’s our guy or not. He acts with little civility or grace towards political opponents.. it’s classless and partisan and teenagerish. You have to be bigger than your opponents and not smaller– it costs little to be a gentleman, and big-hearted about things.

In any case, we don’t live in a perfect world, but as fallen people in a fallen world being remade by God’s grace and power. We can’t expect absolute holy purity in things of this world– yet we may still discern the best of all possible mixed choices in our fallen situation. It’s a matter of the right perspective, as a quote we had yesterday puts it:

“Genuine religion is a kind of absolute defense against bad ideologies, from the violent aggression of Nazism to the passive aggressiveness of blind Obamism. Conversely, virtually all bad ideologies — the ones that do real damage — become pseudo-religions, drawing on religious energy and emotion in the absence of religion.”

Leftism began as an continues to be is a faux-faith, and a blind one at that. That’s why otherwise good people will side with evil, failure, and stupidity, and against the evidence of their brains and lying eyes and experience. It All Makes Sense™.. except that It doesn’t. It’s a First Commandment thing.

Having read some of Duh Fuhrer’s views, all I can say is he’s an clever intellectual dabbler who constructed Big Theories like 9/11 Truthers fabricate conspiracies. And a leftist windbag, with some charisma. Hitler as monster or enigma or swear-word doesn’t make sense. Take any stupid idea, put some political power and obedient minions behind it, and voila! — socialist paradise for some, Hitlerian nightmare for the ‘enemies’. Same old 20th century utopianism of Russia, Cambodia, China, Italy, North Korea, Germany.. utopia failed, bodies in piles.

Just Asking:
“Obama’s suggestion that it is illegal for a 501(c)(4) entity to fund issue ads that are negative toward him appears ludicrous. Here’s the real question, though: if Obama is elected President, will he appoint an Attorney General who will carry out politically-motivated prosecutions like the one he is now demanding? I suppose we can’t know for sure, but why wouldn’t he? If he demands criminal prosecution of free speech that opposes his political interests when he’s a candidate, why wouldn’t he order it as President?”
