CHARLOTTE, NC, July 29, 2014 – Barack Obama is a living metaphor for what is happening in the Middle East today.
As Alan Caruba wrote recently about the president, “It was always about his communist ideology, learned at an early age from family, mentors, college professors, and extreme leftist friends and colleagues.”
Barack Obama’s father was Muslim. As a boy, the future president spent the first third of his life studying Islam and being influenced by its backward medieval ideals.
The increasing evidence that his methods of governing were heavily influenced by those Islamic lessons has had significant implications for the United States.
The president’s approval ratings are dropping faster than someone sinking in quicksand. One primary reason is that his Islamic methods do not coincide with the basic fundamentals upon which our country was founded. Ultimately, such techniques are doomed to fail.
Obama’s most loyal supporters are worried about his legacy. Sadly, Obama doesn’t care about a legacy, and worse, he never did.
Here are ten reasons why Obama and the Islamic world have many of the same philosophies.
1 – Openly lying – At first it was practically a sin to even suggest that the administration was being less than honest with the American people. Today nearly everyone is looking for any element of truth to come out of the White House. Ask yourself when was the last time we heard truth come out of the Middle East?
2 – Say one thing, do another – The president has become so brazen that he no longer attempts to hide his agenda. Islam calls it “taqiyya” which, in a sense, also means lying. Taqiyya expands the concept however, because it allows Muslims to say or do anything they want to protect their interests. In other words, it is a way to “buy time.” Sound familiar?
3 – Assumes no responsibility while blaming others – This has been a hallmark of the Obama presidency. Nearly six years have passed and Mr. O. has yet to make a mistake. If that sounds like Hamas using children as human shields and then blaming Israel for killing innocent people, then you see the similarity.
4 – Refuses to listen – Now and then the president holds a media event with his opponents to demonstrate his openness. It’s always propaganda to manipulate the media. The dog and pony shows are often glitzy and slick, but without substance. In the end, there is never any intention to change. Obama and his Middle Eastern allies have perfected the art.
5 – Lots of talk with no action unless it suits – Has anyone noticed that the people of the Middle East never tire of talking. Be it negotiations, summits, speeches, conferences, meetings or any other form of verbal communications there is constant chatter in the region. Talk is a national pastime in virtually every Middle Eastern country. Actions, unless it is the violence of war, rarely happen. Barack Obama has yet to stop campaigning, even with only two years left in office.
6 – Everything is a political game where victory and defeat are the way to keep score – When the Twin Towers came down it was a loss for America and a victory for Islam. When Osama bin Laden was killed Muslims wept and Americans cheered. In Obama-world and the Muslim world, life and death is scored as wins and losses like the World Cup. As far as Barack Obama is concerned, the only thing that counts is his next political victory.
7 – There is no desire to solve problems, only to perpetuate them – Solving problems gives you nothing to fight for. Barack Obama and Islam thrive on confrontation. Controversy and turmoil are the name of the game. Solutions eliminate the cause.
8 – Trust no one – Arabs are the most paranoid people in the world. They are constantly looking over their shoulders. Barack Obama is no different. As Alan Caruba says, “Barack Obama exists only as the sock puppet of his handlers.” The great manipulator is also manipulated by those who put him in power and, therefore, he trusts no one.
9 – There is no desire to build up, only to tear down – All one has to do is look at any street in the Middle East where cars burn and buildings smolder. Destruction is the rule rather than the exception. Barack Obama has been tearing down America since his first day in office and will continue for the next two years.
10 – Believing you are the ultimate authority – Mr. Obama believes he’s a king and has governed that way since he took the oath of office. Islam has no intentions of ceasing hostilities until Muslims control the world. There is little difference between the two.
Barack Obama is a Picasso painting of America’s greatest fears. And the brush that was used to create him came from the Middle East 14 centuries ago.
