Obama -- the most happy fella

Over the past almost-three years, I've had to laugh — in contempt — when the so-called intelligentsia have shaken their collective heads in bewilderment and seeming incomprehension as they've watched Obama and his essentially Communist regime plunge our nation into:

  • A disastrous economy.

  • Escalating unemployment (25 million at last count, with minority communities suffering the most).

  • Zero job growth.

  • Constant end-runs around our Constitution, including unconstitutionally creating a 12-member Super Committee which bypasses the other 523 members and places extraordinary powers of decision into a clique that in no way represents We the People.

  • The systematic sabotage and undermining of our military.

  • The alienation of trusted allies around the world.

  • A curare-dipped machete into our most trusted ally in the Middle East, Israel, and the manipulation of regimes in that region once led by friends of the U.S. but now led in Libya by al Qaeda terrorists and in Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood...both jihadist, virulently anti-American enterprises.

  • The purposeful destruction of our energy-independence sources, particularly coal and oil, despite two contempt-of-court orders.

  • The use of tyrannical, unconstitutional Executive Orders to demolish quintessential iconic American institutions, for instance the U.S. Light Bulb Factory, in order to send American jobs to Mexico.

  • The usurpation of almost 20 percent of our economy with a draconian healthcare plan that is more reviled today than when it was jammed down our throats on Christmas Eve of 2009.

And what have our most seasoned commentators and political writers said about all this?

"Obama doesn't get it..."

"Obama is naïve..."

"Obama is making mistakes..."

"Obama is following a failed Keynesian philosophy..."

Earth to the tiresome echo chamber — both left and right — that has officially abandoned any semblance of objective, probing, and illuminating journalism: Obama gets it! Obama is not naive. Obama is following an economic philosophy explicitly designed to bankrupt our country and relegate it to banana-republic status.

Those new expressions you see on his face — the faux pout, the pretend seriousness — are just that, faux and pretend. Except, that is, when he simply can't contain his glee, as when he recently walked through hurricane-ravaged Paterson, NJ, with a somber Governor Chris Christie, and beamed with a smile more appropriate for a lottery win than the sight of a submerged, destroyed community with its utterly hopeless populace.

Right now, in fact, Obama is the most happy fella in the country! Everything he set out to do he is succeeding in doing and at warp speed.

Let's remember the mission he himself articulated to an astoundingly gullible public, the desire to "transform" America. Not to maintain its strengths, not to enhance its natural endowments, not to bolster its economy, not to enforce and reinforce its Constitution, not to exhibit pride at its exceptionalism.

Rather, to transform, as in radically change, all these things. To share the wealth... remember?

Why? Because Marxists loathe America! And they fume with a seething, boiling rage that the solutions for society's ills they've dreamed up over the past hundred years have failed so thunderously. Everything they thought would work — to reduce crime, improve education, level the playing field, create safe streets, and secure homes — has gotten worse.

Why? Because, irony of ironies, everything they did was based on the racist and patronizing theories of the left. What does Affirmative Action say to a minority person? It says that he or she is just not smart enough to compete, to get a decent score on a standardized test, to vie for an academic degree without the "we'll waive the rules for you" bleeding-heart liberals. What does a Fannie Mae mortgage say to a minority person? It says that he or she is simply not capable of the hard work and sacrifice it takes to obtain a mortgage or the responsibility it requires to maintain one.

Yet in spite of the fact that crime is up, work is down, housing has imploded, and the stock market is in free fall, leftists cling pathetically to Marx and Keynes (even Keynes eventually understood many of the fallacies of his fiscal doctrines ) in a desperate effort both to punish the successful people who have always made them look and feel so bad, and to try once again to create an Americanized version of Socialism or Communism — the flat-screen TV, cell phone version — in the naïve belief that they can do slavery better than Cuba or Russia or Venezuela, you name it.

These are the people who sneer at the wearing of American flag pins, who routinely refuse to salute our flag (but prefer the old crotch salute), who spit on our Constitution by subordinating the time-honored role of Congress to appointed tsars to create national policy, who promote an illegal gun-running scheme to further their attempt to overturn the Second Amendment, who worship at the altar of abortion and work overtime to keep God out of our schools and military and even Ground Zero, who prefer allowing the cesspool of the United Nations to determine our foreign engagements, and who also spend inordinate amounts of time projecting their anger and misery and racism on the rest of us — the rest of us being the over-70-(probably 80) percent of people who have finally caught on to the fraudulent "president" who occupies the people's White House and his hate-America agenda (which I documented in 2009 in "The President Who Hates His Country").


To destroy America, that is. For sure, Obama has had tremendous help.

It started, as writer Jeff Lukens elaborates upon exhaustively (in a must-read article) well before the 2008 election, "when Democrats took control of Congress in January 2007 [and] MFA [Managed Fund Association] lobbyists soon began pressuring Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox to remove safeguard regulations that provided the conditions for stable markets. Such regulations had been in place since 1938."

Lukens explains that "among MFA members, George Soros is the most well-known. He has made his fortune by short selling and then pouring his private wealth into shadow organizations to subvert various nations. Hastening a market meltdown to give the election to Barack Obama would fit with his pattern of profiting while destroying the social order of his target country. His financing of the Democrat Party and hundreds of 527 organizations collectively has become a 'Shadow Party'...."

To this day, we see this pattern continuing. You can just hear the cackling going on behind the curtain as the Dow zooms up 500 points, then plunges 500, then zooms, then plunges again, along with S & P and Nasdaq — all of it designed to destabilize our own markets and spook foreign ones, cause massive losses to those who have invested their life's savings, and mostly inflict grave injury on capitalism itself.

Marxists revile capitalism! To them, the best economic system known to man is the worst system in the world. "It's not fair," they whine like the chronic malcontents they are.

The money men who give Obama his marching orders continue to reign supreme. Money talks! It also exposes people for who they really are. The Obamas have revealed themselves as classic nouveau-riche types, spending money like drunken sailors, money that belongs to We the People — engaging in truly embarrassing displays of conspicuous consumption and then, like winking, in-on-the-joke Vaudevillians, using the old leftist class-warfare schtick to pretend that they empathize with the have-nots.

In truth, Obama & Co. are working furiously to create the oligarchic system he so admires...the few at the top, the American public he so reviles and is trying to punish at the bottom.

When you see that relaxed saunter around 18 holes, that back-slapping, devil-may-care affability, that big broad smile even as poverty increases and psychotic weather ravages our country, you are looking at the most happy fella in the whole U.S.A.!


Speaking of psychotic weather, have you noticed that since Obama took office, the weather people we see every day and night have been exclaiming: "The worst floods in 108 years!" "The most violent earthquakes in half a century!" "The first triple-whammy of earthquake, nuclear meltdown, and tsunami in history!" "The greatest rainfall in 30 years!" ...on and on and on?

Coincidence? Biblical prophecy? Bad luck? Perhaps. But maybe the confluence of the Obama "presidency" and the spate of horrific weather incidents he seems to have brought with him have a more empirical explanation.

It's important to realize that to destroy America, it takes more than a skittish or even plunging stock market, more than a recession or even the double-dip recession we're apparently in right now. In fact, even more than a depression (God forbid!).

To "transform" our country into the totalitarian statist nightmare leftists like Obama envision — in which Big Government controls every facet of the lives of its citizens from cradle to grave — it takes the nationalization of major industries and the destruction of others, for instance the once-flourishing agricultural industry of America's heartland.

Indeed, horrible weather has ravaged those industries, as states from north to south have been relentlessly assaulted by hurricanes, tornadoes, massive floods, and also wild fires, effectively destroying all of the crops, along with the businesses — many of them decades-old family enterprises.

Could it be that our weather is being manipulated, as some propose?

About a year or two ago, I first learned of the chemtrails being sprayed from unmarked cargo planes not only in the United States but throughout the world. People who have analyzed the fallout have reported a number of highly toxic chemicals — an extremely poisonous brew including barium, nano-aluminum-coated fiberglass, radioactive thorium, cadmium, chromium, nickel, desiccated blood, mold spores, yellow fungal mycotoxins, ethylene dibromide, and polymer fibers — and, in certain areas of spraying, a noticeably elevated incidence of upper-respiratory ailments and other sicknesses, as well as thousands of dead birds and fish.

A compelling film, What in the World Are They Spraying?, describes this bizarre phenomenon, made all the more so by the striking absence of investigative reporting and by the utter failure of our meteorologists to acknowledge the existence of chemtrails or their effect on the strange weather patterns we've been experiencing. Some have speculated that this is a United Nations enterprise designed to combat (the colossal hoax of) global warming by blocking the sun with the dispersed chemicals.

Others, however, have a more scientific explanation, saying that the spraying is a precursor that provides the medium necessary for the activities of the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP, to take place. According to its home page, HAARP, which is a huge complex in Alaska, is comprised of antennae using radio frequencies, which "has been in continuous use since the 1950s to investigate fundamental physical principles which govern the earth's ionosphere...." The facility also encompasses a five-country consortium, including Norway, Peru, Russia, Ukraine, and Tadzhikistan.

The goal, HAARP's website states, is to create weather conditions "in localized regions" that "nature produces randomly and regularly on a much larger scale." Further, the site reveals that the program is run by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, and the U.S. Department of Defense under the U.S. Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI).

Mmmmmm. A program to manipulate the weather that is run by the DoD and the United States military.

According to Professor Michel Chossudovsky of the University of Ottawa, "under U.N. auspices...both the Americans and the Russians have developed capabilities to manipulate the world's climate.... [I]n the U.S., the technology is being perfected under HAARP... and has the ability of potentially triggering floods, droughts, hurricanes and earthquakes.... [This could lead to] weakening national economies, destroying infrastructure, and potentially triggering the bankruptcy of farmers over vast areas."

"From a military standpoint," Chossudovsky writes, "HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction...potentially capable of selectively destabilizing agricultural and ecological systems of entire regions."

Some reports state that HAARP is now fully operational and that "weather wars" — including eco-terrorism — are now a regular part of the world we live in. As far back as 1997, Secretary of Defense William Cohen remarked at a counterterrorism conference: "Others [terrorists] are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes [and] volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our [counterterrorism] efforts."

Which begs the question: Is the high incidence of devastating weather we've been having for the last three years a function of HAARP and/or chemtrails and/or both? And if so, who gives the orders to those who operate this system? Is it the U.S. Department of Defense, the Navy, the Army, or all three simultaneously? Are not all of them under the direct command of the Commander in Chief? Or do they sometimes go rogue, operating independently and outside of the awareness of the CIC and his staff and cabinet and the U.S. Congress?

These questions may never be answered, but we can deduce the information simply by observing Mr. Obama as he peruses catastrophe after catastrophe, swivels his head from left to right to read the words that some quasi-empathic hack wrote for him, and then walks away exuding the insouciance of the most happy fella in the entire neighborhood.


As time has gone by, my initial thinking that Americans experienced a bloodless coup d'état in November 2008 has gone from suspicion to conviction. It is not only that the entire world can now see that Obama lacks the heart, soul, intellect, and leadership skills to be, well, the leader of the free world, but also that forces far more knowledgeable and sophisticated than he are running the show, so to speak.

He was obviously selected for his role as front man by people who accurately gauged the psyche of the American people and decided that we were far-enough along — actually sufficiently devolved, in my opinion — in political correctness and multiculturalism to accept a candidate with:

  • Few credentials.

  • No verifiable history.

  • A couple of books he claimed to have written (a claim since debunked).

  • A political background marinated in the corrupt Chicago machine.

  • A few-year's stint as a community organizer.

  • A 20-year membership in a church touting Marxist anti-American, anti-Semitic black-liberation "theology."

  • A wife who felt no pride in America until her mid-forties.

  • And two cute daughters.

Welcome to 21st century America, the land of the free and the home of the brazen! Add to that a self-admitted cabal of 400 leftist "journOlists" who decided not only to support unquestioningly a multi-culti candidate whose speeches betrayed a startling ignorance of history; who was (and is) incapable of delivering non-teleprompter-cued remarks; and who was (and remains) shockingly biased when it came to Bible-clasping, abortion-rejecting, gun-toting citizens — but to do so by slurring and defaming both critics of Obama and candidates running against him.

It is not only members of the media who were complicit in covering for Obama, but clearly the entire Congress was (and is) too. To this day, they witness Obama's egregious violations of the Constitution and raise not a whisper of objection. Then there is the Supreme Court of our land, which has rejected dozens of lawsuits regarding Obama's highly questionable eligibility, citing the lack of "standing" that a mere citizen has to challenge the legitimacy of any elected official, in this case an official who controls the nuclear "football."

That is not to omit the immense help Obama has received from our Intelligence agencies, which have kept his fraudulent birth certificate, Social Security card(s), Selective Service records, college transcripts, Visa(s), medical records — the list goes on and on — from ever seeing the light of day.

Speaking of medical records, what are those scars that run down the left and right sides of Obama's head? Did he have brain surgery we haven't been told about? A chip implanted?


...the future seems pretty obvious to me. Right now, the people who control Obama can see the writing on the wall, namely poll numbers plunging downward by the day, an economy that promises nothing positive for, possibly, years, and an electorate that has finally "smelled the coffee" and is no longer lulled or tricked by Obama's now-familiar repertoire, which is characterized by a hectoring tone and direly urgent demands for increased spending and higher taxes.

The same far-left members of Congress — Henry Waxman, Barney Frank, et al — who wrote Obama's voluminous, multi-thousand-page healthcare and cap-and-trade bills (to name but two), are now rushing to burden Americans with more destructive legislation, just as Obama is racing around the country trying to convince people that rising debt and chronic joblessness are somehow desirable.

He's in a good mood — as I said, the most happy fella — because so much of his hope-and-change blather has already been enacted and he reads every day about the sorry state our country is in. He can really say Mission Accomplished!

But as I've also said and written in "Obama Won't Run....His Work is Done," he will not run again. Oh yes, he's pretending to run, but he won't. He doesn't really like the job. And he's not good at it. As for the Democrat Party and the slavering minions he will throw under the bus, no problem for a man who didn't blink when he threw his pastor and close friends and grandmother squarely in front of that bus's bone-crushing wheels.

Say what you will about Obama, but please don't tell me he cares about a single human being! Except, I hope, his daughters, and of course himself. But I've already written about his malignant narcissism, so we'll skip that here.

Unless his term in office is followed by indictment for high crimes and misdemeanors, for sedition and criminally violating the Constitution, I predict that he will collect the multimillions he has reportedly amassed in off-shore accounts and live a life of slothful luxury, possibly in a foreign country he actually likes. We already know that he has sent hundreds of millions of American taxpayer dollars to refurbish mosques in the Middle East, so the notion that he has accumulated his own foreign nest egg is really not very far-fetched.

But from now until that day of decision comes, expect to see a pretty consistently bubbly Barack Obama, the most happy fella in any venue he appears.
