While reading Walter Laqueur’s biography of Josef Stalin, I was struck by a couple of similarities between Stalin and Obama. Even though Stalin’s life and personality were for very different from Obama’s, there are a couple of important similarities between the two men. The most obvious one, which almost certainly laid the foundation for the hatred that was embedded in the souls of both leaders, was their extremely dysfunctional and unhappy childhoods.
A second similarity is their remarkable success in portraying themselves to be men of great character and morality, the exact opposite of who they really were/are. Stalin, much like Obama today, succeeded in carrying out a nonstop propaganda campaign in which he was portrayed to the public as the kindly “Uncle Joe,” notwithstanding his ruthless murdering of tens of millions of his own countrymen.

We already know that Obama is a trillion-dollar bailout queen. And why not? After all, it’s not his money – or for that matter, his country. Why would he care?
Is Romney their man also? I’m guessing yes, but we’ll find out soon enough.

No, there’s something very threatening to the media establishment about the eligibility story. It’s simply this: Should the real story ever be told of how Obama hoodwinked Americans into making him president when he wasn’t constitutionally eligible for the job, the finger-pointing and blame-making isn’t going to be limited to the community organizer and his supporters. It’s going to come back to haunt – and, quite possibly, destroy – the careers of those who enabled it all.

Obama’s failure to act on this real threat and his support of other radical Muslim interests, such as the ascension of the granddaddy of terrorist groups the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and throughout the Middle East, is perceived by many to be the result of Obama’s own conflicted Muslim roots – his Kenyan father having been a Muslim who had to be deported from the United States. Obama’s actions and words over the last three and a half years have supported this view, and now even many leftist Hollywood Jews, who previously voted for him, believe he is a not too latent anti-Semite bent not just on harming the interests of Israel but also American Jews and evangelical Christians in general.

The latest numbers on jobs and the economy do not bode well for the Obama campaign. The bad news on the economy will add fuel to the brushfire that will soon turn into an inferno. Can you spell O-b-a-m-a- M-e-l-t-d-o-w-n?
Obama’s campaign meltdown will soon yield to the Obama panic, which means the country will be in store for even more dramatic Obama theatrics. This summer will be a very dangerous period for our country because there are no limits to the nasty measures Obama and his gang of SEIU thugs will undertake to hang onto the White House.

The fact is, Obama’s administration far more closely resembles the Roman government in ancient Judea than he resembles Jesus Christ.
It goes without saying that Obama has a ridiculously high opinion of himself. As a result, when he was told that Jesus had once advised people to render unto Caesar that which was Caesar’s, and render unto the Lord that which was the Lord’s, he naturally assumed, being a combination of the two, that everything should therefore be rendered unto him.

But the truth is, Obama, whose only god is the one he sees reflected in his bathroom mirror, is attacking the First Amendment. If he can get away with forcing the Church to go against its own basic tenets, it would mean he could do just about anything. And after running our national debt up to $16 trillion, gutting the military and taking control of the automotive, energy and health-care industries, you can easily see where he’d get that idea.

We at WND, however, never allowed ourselves to be duped. When I first picked up “Dreams” in 2008, Obama’s “excess of talent” left me not spellbound, but suspicious. WND shared my suspicions.
For the last five years, despite limited resources, we have been building a case against Obama’s credibility that Ferguson and his peers have fully ignored, if not actively mocked.
When I challenged the legitimacy of “Dreams,” for instance, Remnick implied that I was a racist and exiled me to “the Web’s farthest lunatic orbit.” From the Weekly Standard’s perspective, there I remain.

The president is a serial killer. The Surveillance State has metastasized under Barack Obama, whose growing fleet of armed Predators and Reapers – operated by both the CIA and the military’s Joint Special Operations Command – each has its own kill list, overseen personally by the president. As I write, Obama is likely pouring over pictures of Yemeni teenagers (“terrorists”), deciding who’ll live and whose time is up.
Couple his kill-list venture and his leadership role in the leveling of Libya, and Obama is up there with the “best” of dictators.
