Delusional liar

Here’s a story of the kind you can read every day on the right side of the blog world, Bob Kerrey Calls Obama a Delusional Liar; Renders Himself MSM Nonperson

Ho hum. Obama is a liar. Wrote about it myself just the other day. He is also off with the fairies, completely lacking in a sense of reality. I’ve also written about just this myself. But in this case the person making the accusation actually tried to run for President as a Democrat and is a former Democrat US Senator. But even so, you have to come to the right side blogs to find out. From the article:

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks.

Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect him to become an MSM nonperson. Such seems to already be the fate of former presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey. It is no surprise that his extended criticisms of Obama appeared in in a Daily Mail article in Britain, not in America where the shunning seems to have already begun.

It’s the American media that is the black hole for information about Obama. Nothing emerges. What might go in never comes out. But as for Kerrey’s views, which you can only read here or on like-minded blogs, this is what he had to say:

Obama isn’t the first president to make that kind of miscalculation – Kerrey calls it ‘self-delusion’ – while in office.

He joked that geneticists will one day soon ‘find a base pair’ of genes that predisposes people to deception.

And he predicted, half-seriously, that ‘they’ll find another base pair which say that politicians have 25 per cent more capacity for – you call it lying, I call it self-delusion.’

But however much a delusional liar Obama may be, a media that actually did its job would hound a president into less time on the golf course and more effort to get his policies right. It is the far left American media that is at the heart of the problem for which no solution comes to mind, nor can there be until some politician on the right takes up this issue in a seriously determined way.

UPDATE: The horror of Obama in the White House who cannot be removed before January 2017 is beginning to dawn on more and more people. It’s an insanity really. The same dim bulbs who could not wait to see the last of George Bush and who voted for Obama a second time are driving the US and the West into receivership and worse. Same goes for all those fools who chose to stay home because the Democrats nominated someone not exactly to their taste. So here is yet another story of the train wreck coming, this one titled Chickens come home to roost for Obama:

Obama’s sixth year in the White House is shaping up as his worst, and that’s saying something. He’s been in the Oval Office so long that it is obscene to blame his problems on George W. Bush, the weather or racism. Obama owns the world he made, or more accurately, the world he tried to remake.

Nothing important has worked as promised, and there is every reason to believe the worst is yet to come. The president’s casual remark the other day that he worries about “a nuclear weapon ­going off in Manhattan” inadvertently reflected the fear millions of Americans have about his leadership. Not necessarily about a bomb, but about where he is taking the country.

We are racing downhill and he is stepping on the gas. Will he stop before the nation crashes?

Stories of this kind have a global warming sense to me, some kind of thrilling to the horrors to come. Only unlike global warming, this is a genuine tragedy and is happening in real time.

    An edited quote from Ben Franklin –

    Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as public Liberty, without Freedom of Speech; which is the Right of every Man, as far as by it, he does not hurt or control the Right of another: And this is the only Check it ought to suffer, and the only Bounds it ought to know.
    This sacred Privilege is so essential to free Goverments, that the Security of Property, and the Freedom of Speech always go together; and in those wretched Countries where a Man cannot call his Tongue his own, he can scarce call any Thing else his own.
    Whoever would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation, must begin by subduing the Freeness of Speech

    “Freeness of Speech” in the US is controlled by the MSM. Ben Franklin would have called them traitors.

    It’s why we see so much lying – which Kerrey wants to rebrand “self delusion” – on the left side of politics.

    I honestly struggle to find instances where what we hear coming out of their mouths are not baldfaced lies, at worst, or sinister and opportunistic deceptions at best.

    And you are abso-bloody-lutely correct in saying that the primary problem rests with the media.

    Today, would any right sided politician ever attempt “There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead” or “If you like you health plan, you can keep your health plan, period! If you like you doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period!”, win the election, and then simply proceed to do the complete opposite?

    No bloody way. Why? Because they would be crucified by the media class and the crucifixion would go on and on and on until the next election where the culprit will have it rammed down his/her throat every time they bobbed their sorry head up.

    I still remember like it was yesterday George HW Bush’s “Read my lips, no new taxes”, and that was over 26 years ago in a foreign country, such was the media assault on his credibility which came to resemble the consistency of shit by the time they had finished with him.

    But for Obama, whose serial compulsive lying knows no bounds, his great media facilitators busy themselves with covering for him and pretending that everything’s just sweet – despite the catastrophe Obamacare has become for ordinary Americans who’ve had their private healthcare plans demolished with their rewritten plans skyrocketing in premium and deductible (excess) costs.

    But they’ve been doing this since Senator Obama first put his hand up for the primary. His medical and academic records are all secret, his close associations with some of the most radical and destructive political filth in the US covered up, his shonky Rezko-styled deals are papered over, his total ineptitude in foreign affairs are touched up make him look like some kind of Kissinger, his bungling and gross incompetence – and sheer cold naked indifference – in domestic policy are shunted in favour of his last dance moves on Ellen DeGeneres, his plundering of the treasury to prop up Democrat donors are treated as though it’s just DC being DC and they all do it, his rapacious appetite for extravagant vacations with 900 strong entourages are to be seen as him deserving a well earned break, and so on.

    That country is going down. Unless they correct course and blast the political class and their army of hangers-on, out of DC, it’s bloody revolution.

    The people will have their representation, come what may.

    It’s the American media that is the black hole for information about Obama. Nothing emerges.

    As an example here is what I read today:

    Another element of the Obamacare catastrophe has been the failure of the mainstream media to address the impact the law has had on America. On March 26, the Media Research Center reported that “They’re just burying the story. They aren’t in denial. They know the truth. They’re just choosing to ignore it.

    An analysis by the Center of the three network evening news broadcasts in 2014 “found only 12 stories on three networks in almost three months.” For example, “NBC Nightly News” broadcast only one story on Obamacare and that was on January 1 when Lester Holt called it “a new era in health care in this country.” ABC “World News” provided only six minutes and 58 seconds on Obamacare and “CBS Evening News” managed to provide only 19 minutes and 17 seconds over the course of three months.

    “None of the networks,” said the Center’s analysis, “dared to report the ongoing opposition of the American people to Obamacare in 2014, even when they were the ones doing the polling.”

    The biggest story in America affecting the most number of people and it is not being reported or analysed by the networks.

    When you have almost all of the main stream media burying anything critical and singing like zombie canaries to the White House tune, well it doesn’t say much for democracy in that country.

    Life imitates art:

    The Spike
    Customer Reviews:
    The newspaper reporter writes a story that gets a CIA operative in big trouble.
    He learns after the fact that the information he has used was false information supplied by the Russians.
    The American people too often believe that everything that they read in the papers and see in the news is true.

  5. Anne

    Is anyone surprised that the MSM are protectors and keepers of the leftist faith?

    Obama is not delusional at all. He knows exactly what he’s doing. I’d like to single out the first and fifth of these rules but Obama really has them ALL covered.

    How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

    There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

    1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people

    2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

    3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

    4) Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

    5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)

    6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

    7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools

    8) Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    Our journalists are being churned out from universities where they are taught by failed journalists who can only impart what made them failures.

    And what do they pick up? A post modernist conviction that truth does not matter but narratives do. And what narratives would they be? The usual middle-class daddy issue nonsense that humanities departments heave with. And then there is the juvenile conviction that they are right, a conviction reinforced by hanging around in cliques of like minded people.

    “No president can win ’em all, but Obama’s foreign-policy record is unblemished by success. From east to west and north to south, America’s standing and influence have declined universally.”

    Oh, I think he see that as a success.

    Obama’s playbook

    Communist Rules for Revolution

    In May 1919 at Dusseldorf, Germany, the allied forces discovered a copy of these ‘Rules.’ They were first printed in the United States in the ‘Bartlesville (Oklahoma) Examiner-Enterprise’ the same year, 1919.

    Almost 20 years later, in 1946, the attorney general of Florida obtained them from a known member of the Communist Party, who acknowledged that the ‘Rules’ were then still a part of the Communist program for the United States.

    1. Corrupt the young, get them away from religion. Get them interested in sex. Make them superficial. Destroy their ruggedness.

    2. Get control of all means of publicity.

    3. Get people’s minds off their government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and other trivialities.

    4. Divide the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.

    5. Destroy the people’s faith in their natural leaders by holding the latter up to contempt, ridicule and obloquy.

    6. Always preach true democracy, but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.

    7. By encouraging government extravagance, destroy its credit and produce fear of inflation with rising prices and general discontent.

    8. Foment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders, and foster a lenient and soft attitude on the part of government toward such disorders.

    9. By specious argument cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues, honesty, sobriety, continence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.

    10. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext, with a view to confiscating them and leaving the populace helpless.

    Now, stop and think — how many of these rules are being carried out in this nation today? I don’t see how any thinking person can truthfully say that the Communists do not have any part in the chaos that is upsetting our nation. Or is it just one big coincidence? I doubt it.

    I have been monitoring the ‘US Constitutionalists’ as they respond to the Alinskyites of the US left over the past couple of years. A very significant faction of them is done with giving ground, and has evolved a very effective method of waging literal war against them. The polarisation is very deep and it is hard to see how it will not lead to bad outcomes.

    it will take very little to trigger decentralised factions such as the so-called ‘Three Percenters’ into action. One bungled SWAT raid might trigger them, so deep runs the anger. The US state has no ability to defeat a ‘fourth generation warfare’ campaign, but would probably spasm in response and take out the very activists who might be able to rein things in, and this would merely deepen the conflict, and spread it like wildfire.

    Watch Connecticut.

    Contrast what we are witnessing today with theories on Kennedy’s assassination, put in films such as Executive Action (Burt Lancaster) and JFK, especially Donald Sutherland’s monologue. Those theories had disaffected significant groups joining together fairly early in the piece to eradicate the threat.

    I do wonder if a similar situation could recur, notwithstanding the shifts in power which (I assume) have diminished the power and ability of those groups to so act and to succeed undetected. Certainly they have become more pragmatic and, if there is profit to be made, they’ll reach an accommodation with the devil himself.

    I also wonder about the prospects of a more grassroots reaction, remembering the sales of guns and ammunition rocketed when the evil bastard came to power, and have remained high since. That proved an universal inclination to act.

    Do the grassroots groups have the stomach to back up their stated resolve? Would a mutiny in a couple of States spark a spontaneous reaction elsewhere and civil war, or would the first few skirmishes fizzle out in time for the next Yankees vs Red Sox game?

    An armed federal move against any group in any state and its all over. It would be a signal to gun owning part of the population that their government had risen against them.

  14. Luke


    If the US citizens haven’t realised by now that their Federal government is against them (well, most of them), then nothing is going to change that. They’ll sit in their gulags convincing each other that if only the great Obama knew what had happened to them he would stop it.

    Multiculturalism has achieved it’s purpose all across the West which was to destroy Western cultures, values and institutions. The next (Democrat) president will simply denouce Obama and vow to go back to the good ‘true’ work of progressives…all to the renewed cheers of the crowd.

  15. Supplice

    Er, Anne? You know that “communist rules” thing you linked to on Snopes? Even Snopes says that it’s false, right above the bit that you c&p’ed.

  16. Anne

    Thanks Supplice. I put it up there for Steve. It seems the “How to Create a Social State” has been falsely attributed to Alinsky and that that may have manifested from these Communist “rules”.

    If you know who is the author of the “How to Create a Social State” or seen it published anywhere prior to 2008 would you let me know please.

  17. Anne

    …or let Steve know. Thanks.

  18. Maybe America needs the crash? A good old fashioned all in melt-down could finally prompt the Americans to finally fix their broken governmental system and get to fixing their broken economic model.
