This time around, it’s a new feature of mine here at America’s Right, a collection of thoughts and impressions from grumblings heard from within the shadowy depths of the conservative underground. Next time, for obvious reasons, it won’t be new.
Can He Expect Hazing?
I wrote an article a couple weeks ago here at America’s Right on America’s interest in secret societies in relation to the Yale organization Skull and Bones. Of course, there will be far more discussion concerning the issue of secret societies when Barack Obama and his crew of 500 cross the pond for an audience with a number of inevitably underimpressed world leaders and when he likely has his private audience with the Queen of England.
Welcome to his initiation into sociopathic corruption and rule by divine right.
This is precisely what the 21st century should have nothing to do with, right? Sure. Of course. That would be true except for two problems — first, that’s not how the world is ruled and, second, President Obama needs his initiation into cult of world power. Bill Clinton, after all, has influenced a great deal of the world since he was president and has made himself a fortune. Once you are part of the gang, see, the gang does not have to worry about you anymore.
Given his immense popularity among those who do not know better, not to mention the book deal he signed within hours before his inauguration, it’s fair to say that Barack Obama will likely leave the White House wealthier than when he came in, and will likely become a billionaire after he leaves. It pays, you see, to be King. This is called the parallel government, where bankers and ex-politicians rule without holding an official title. Talk about it over a drink with Henry Kissinger.
Want Economic Recovery? Search Your Feelings.
The purveyors of finance on Wall Street understand that their reputations are almost beyond repair. They need to convince people to invest money with them, even after all that has happened to convince Americans otherwise. Furthermore, the American corporate press wants to show that President Obama knows all, that the future looks beautiful, that liberalism works.
The theory behind this mostly has to do with the belief that the economy is based on faith, not reality. It is the liberal faith-based economy. If you think you are well, you are well.
Do not laugh. Read the newest New Age medical theories that place blame for all your illnesses on how you think and how you feel. Take the ideological temperature of those seemingly defying gravity in yoga studios from coast to coast.
If you listen to these people, the champions of holistic medicine and economic theory alike, American medicine has apparently never cured anyone who arrived at the hospital unconscious. Suffer a coronary for working too hard as a dirty capitalist? Make sure you tell the ambulance drive not to give you anything to make you sleep — if you have a nightmare that Nancy Pelosi is president, you surely die.
Talk is Cheap, but Botox is Expensive.
“There seems to be a market for saying that I am very partisan, and that I don’t give the Republicans their opportunity. That simply is not true,” Pelosi said in an interview with PBS’ Charlie Rose. “They know in this recovery package that we had, we asked them what they wanted.”
Open Your Textbooks, Kids, to the Chapter on the Death of America
Why does the president care how the states pay their teachers? Because the federal government intends to run the public schools. This fight is a long way from over. Watch the progression of this, and watch how this administration’s so-called“voluntary” service acts will also help federalize the schools.
Making the Grand Old Party New Again.
Now, I do not know if the majority of the American public believes this, since most of us cannot recall what Grover Cleveland did while in the White House. (If you asked “which time?” upon hearing former President Cleveland’s name, then this section may not apply to you.)
However, this still leaves the Republican Party as the bogey man in the whole economic mess America is in, giving Obama a high horse on which to ride around the world. As it were, the Republicans are still unable to elevate and celebrate a bona fide national leader. John McCain and Ron Paul–representing two very different factions of the GOP–are little more than symbolic leaders today, as they remind us of the past but do not show us the future.
Jeff seems to talk a whole lot about Jim DeMint, Mark Sanford and Bobby Jindal when I see him, and more recently has been singing the praises of Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann. If any of you know who else to focus upon, please advise.
The Flowing Robes … Bald … Striking.
Of course, this also sounds a lot like America, too. At least, though, we let the Dalai Lama speak his mind throughout the country. Regardless, this sort of thing is what I saw throughout the Cold War in the struggle between America and the Soviet Union. This may be a signal, a harbinger with regard to where much of Africa is headed, largely because America is charging down the road toward insolvency.
