President Obama is not interested in politics. He’s more interested in filling out his bracket sheet for March Madness, going on vacation, and golfing with celebrities. We all know this. For example, “President Barack Obama has spent more time traveling abroad than other U.S. president in history at this point in their presidencies, according to a forthcoming study from the National Taxpayer Union Foundation (NTUF). . .”
Politics only interests Obama when it can knock down the United States a peg or two. He has always believed that he could talk his way in and out of every situation. World-stage politics is more than talk. He is out of his league, and the world knows it.
This does not mean that his presidency is without political maneuvering. The dogs of political war bark their way into favorable position to grab hold of a leader so they can impose their will through him.
Consider the following from David Kupelian at WND in his frightening article “Meet the Most Powerful Woman in America”:
“Suppose you were a committed leftist revolutionary who somehow got elected president of center-right America.
“Suppose you were great at making speeches, but little else. You masked your socialist agenda in the appealing rhetoric of fairness and justice, but secretly loathed the American system of constitutional government and free-market capitalism.
“Suppose you also had developed into a pathological narcissist with an absurdly grandiose view of yourself and almost no tolerance for criticism and disagreement. Suppose your ego was so fragile, your worldview so distorted, your mind so angry beneath your charismatic exterior, and your self-image of being a divinely gifted leader now in danger of disintegrating in the light and heat of mounting geopolitical turmoil and your own stunning failures as president.
“Suppose, in short, you were Barack Obama.”
So who’s really directing policies in Obama’s name? “Meet Valerie Jarrett, whom savvy Beltway insiders regard as the most powerful woman in Washington. And yet, most Americans have never even heard of her, let alone know who she is or what she does.”
Jarrett never makes any of the “most powerful women in America” lists.
It was Jarrett who pushed Obama to ignore the moderate voices in his administration. She convinced Obama to ‘go for broke’ with Obamacare, which ultimately was forced down the throats of an unwilling American public and Congress, using bribery, parliamentary tricks and every conceivable tactic, including some of the most infamous political lies (‘You can keep your plan/doctor/hospital’) in history.”
According to Kupelian, Valerie Jarrett brought some of the most leftist radicals to the Obama administration: “green jobs czar” Van Jones, who has described himself as a “rowdy black nationalist” and radical “communist,” having founded the communist group Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, Federal Communications Commission “chief diversity officer” Mark Lloyd, who once advocated having “white people” step down from positions of power to make room for “more people of color [and] gays,” Cass Sunstein, the powerful White House “regulatory czar” who has advocated that U.S. taxpayers’ wealth be redistributed to poorer nations and that government infiltrate chat rooms and social network sites to clandestinely undermine citizens’ belief in what he considers “conspiracy theories” – including the belief that global warming is a deliberate fraud.
Get this, as National Review Online reporter Andrew Stiles has pointed out, “former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who clashed often with Jarrett, likened her and senior aide Peter Rouse to Saddam Hussein’s maniacal sons, Uday and Qusay.”
There’s so much more about this dangerous woman. David Kupelian’s article is must reading.
The worst part of all of this is the entrench bureaucracy that these radicals will leave behind.
