If It Looks Like A Duck Dept.

Ever since he burst onto the national scene, there have been questions about Barack Hussein Obama’s religious affiliations. The revelations about his Islamic upbringing and the various documents that listed the young Obama as a Muslim were disturbing. Neither did it help Obama’s claims of devout Christianity that the only Christian church he ever attended was that of black racialist, anti-Semitic, anti-American “pastor” Jeremiah Wright, nor that Wright himself said that he’d put special effort into making the formerly Muslim Obama “comfortable” with his change of affiliation. And of course, we have Obama’s current non-attendance at Christian services, his dismissal of traditionally celebrated Christian holy days, his demonstrated antipathy toward Israel, and his pronounced favoritism toward the Islamic states of the Middle East.

Despite all that, it was difficult for me to see Obama as a Muslim for a single reason: it would require him to accept that there’s a Being superior to him. That’s a tough dictate for someone as narcissistic as Obama to swallow:

If you want to know why the Obama administration failed so spectacularly to defend Obamacare in the Supreme Court last week, look no further than a 2008 statement President Obama gave to author Richard Wolfe: "You know, I believe my own bulls--t."...

Here is what Obama told aide Patrick Gaspard in 2008: "I think that I'm a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I'll tell you right now that I'm gonna think I'm a better political director than my political director."...

When Rep. Marion Berry, D-Ark., told Obama that the political atmosphere in his state felt a lot like 1994, when Democrats lost the House for the first time in two generations, Obama replied, "Well the big difference between here and in '94 was you've got me." Upon hearing those words, Berry chose to retire rather than run again. Democrats lost a record 63 House seats -- including Berry's -- and control of the House....

But don't worry. Obama is the most talented politician of our time. Just ask him. In 2004, after his Democratic National Convention speech, Obama told David Mendell, "I'm LeBron, baby."

(Granted that his narcissism also undercuts his claim of Christian allegiance, but for me at least, that’s been a non-starter from the first.)

But they who make it their practice to delve into the backgrounds of the highly placed have not been idle:

For example, at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, Secretary of State John Kerry made certain to avoid offending or disrespectingMuslim terrorists such as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). He told the attendees at the forum that the U.S. government will never rush to judgment regarding the nature of the Islamic State: “We have to keep our heads…the biggest error that we could make would be to blame Muslims collectively for crimes not committed by Muslims alone. Crimes that the overwhelming majority of Muslims oppose… Religions don’t require adherents to raze villages and blow up people, it’s individuals with a distorted and an even ignorant interpretation of religion who do that.”

According to the Examiner's anonymous source, those were not the words of Kerry, but were the dictates of Valerie Jarrett, who had been born and raised in Iran, and has always shown sympathy for the fundamentalists in the Islamic religion. While a student at Stanford University, Jarrett admitted her loyalty to Islam and continues to object to any negative statements aimed at any part of her "religion of peace."

" Farsi-speaking Valerie Jarrett, the senior advisor to Obama, his right-hand woman was born in Iran. She also has ties with terrorist William Ayers, and her father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett is a card-carrying communist party member and associate of Frank Marshall Davis, the controversial Communist Party activist who was Obama’s childhood mentor. Davis is mentioned many times in Obama’s autobiography. Obama’s senior advisor/campaign manager David Axelrod also has family roots in the Communist party. His parents were Communists," according to former Saturday Night Live comedian and actress Victoria Jackson, who now hosts a conservative talk show and researched what she calls "the real Obama White House."

(Applause to CM Blake for the link.)

Given the indisputable behavioral patterns of the federal executive branch and essentially all its conspicuous members, perhaps the acknowledged religious attachments of Obama and Jarrett don’t really matter. But doesn’t it all make a consistent, hugely compelling picture?

Any Gentle Reader who hasn’t yet lapsed into a diabetic coma from regularly reading my treacly-sweet effusions will already be familiar with my opinions about Islam. That we have an executive administration resolved to kowtow to this totalitarian, inherently anti-American creed should appall anyone with three functioning brain cells. That with sufficient information it might have been predictable from the first makes the matter even more disturbing. It resurrects a set of familiar “whys:”

  • Why has Obama been so secretive about his college and law school records?
  • Why is so little information about Obama’s pre-Senate career publicly available?
  • Why has Valerie Jarrett trailed him like an imprinted duckling, wherever he’s gone?
  • Why, given her obvious influence, does Jarrett have no official position in the Administration?
  • Why did those who know the answers to the above questions work so diligently to suppress them?

And why did the American electorate, which already had four years of experience with the duplicity of the Obamunist cabal, return him to the White House for a second term – if, indeed, it really did?

Food for thought.

Today, Obama: "It [The Problem] really is, as it has been described in some cases, a death cult or an entirely backward looking fantasy that can’t function in the world.”


Of course, Zero mention of the Prog Death Cult doing its level best to protect "The Problem."

The Progs really need to be pounded on their own DC actions Fran. So far that's only been me, you and Daniel Greenfield. Not even their own people being shockingly beheaded can sway the SSM from playing along with this death spiral.

We are told God helps those who helps themselves. Sadly, courage appears to be lacking all around.

The recently unearthed column published Nov.2, 1979 in the Chicago Tribune by Vernon Jarrett, Valerie's dad a communist/Black activist, lays out a plan by Saudi Arabia to fund young Black people for public office. Jarrett, coincidently a friend of Frank Marshall Davis, tied in also with the Ayers family describes a plan to place politicians in office who would be sympathetic towards the Saudi point of view. Given the little we do know of Obama's background and based upon his actions, it is safe to assume while he may not be a practicing Muslim, he is more than sympathetic to and is aiding both the communist and Muslim Brotherhood agenda.

Daniel Greenfield ran a good article on this a while back:

It is my understanding that narcissists are among the most easily manipulated personality types. With Jarrett as his immediate "handler", and Obama having primed by all of the Communist individuals he was exposed to and mentored by he was ripe to "believe his own bullsh*t". How, otherwise, could anyone actually imagine that they could be elected to Oval Office with as little experience, knowledge or competency at any worldly task or field of endeavor.

I'm certainly not calling him a Manchurian Candidate (although that isn't completely beyond the bounds of possibility), but definitely an empty suit who has been led by the hand, convinced of his "greatness" and his destiny to "transform America" into a country more closely resembling the dreams of his "fathers", like Frank Marshall Davis.

I haven't yet come to amy conclusions as to why those who groomed, prepped, and raised up this creature chose to push him to lean so heavily on his muslim upbringing.

I do realize that encouraging islam here produces a stalking horse which will - through the increasing infringements upon liberty by the "war on terror", and through political correctness and the privileged status of islam against the native cultures of the many countries burdened with ever-growing muslim populations - eventually may reduce Western civilization to third-world status within one or two more generations. How the oligarchs can believe that such a knife will never twist within their own hands and cut them too is difficult for me to grasp.

I have a picture in my mind of Michelle Obama looking out over the peasants below her saying, "Let them eat hummus."
