I'm sure you remember Palpatine. He was that Star Wars character that spent years in the Galactic Senate, pretending to be a good galactic citizen with the noblest of intentions, eventually rising to the position of Chancellor and invested with emergency powers. In reality, he was an evil Sith Lord, whose goal was to eliminate the Republic and replace it with a Sith Empire.

Why bring him up here?

Well, I've been reading a book called The Manchurian President. It is an interesting read, but I will save you the trouble, if you like. It is little but long and meticulous documentation of how Barack Obama, since he was a small child--since birth, really--has been born to, raised among, influenced by, worked with, worked for, been associated with, favored by, etc., etc., etc., an assortment of communists, socialists, hard-leftists, and Islamist radicals. It is not conjecture. The information has been pulled largely from newspaper accounts, newsletters and magazines (like the Trinity United Church of Christ's Trumpet) and personal interviews.

Many of these people come from organizations where one of the chief tactics is what is termed "boring from within":--joining the established system with the express goal of working from within to undermine and demolish it.

Now, I suppose you can believe one of at least three things:

1) Barack Obama has come from a background of anti-capitalist and anti-America-as-we-know-it thugs, risen to the presidency, and is deliberately trying to crash the system so as to replace it with something else, which would be perfectly consistent with his friends' and acquaintances' ideology and tactics, or...

2) He has played along with all these people since he was a boy, waiting for the right opportunity to betray them all, or...

3) He has somehow fit right in with all these people for decades, yet has absolutely no clue what they're about, or what he's doing, for that matter.

My opinion is that his actions since assuming the presidency strongly point to option "1," but that's just my opinion.

At any rate, for a couple of years now, I've vacillated between "Is he really that stupid?" and "Is he really that evil?"

My mind's made up now. As far as this blog is concerned, he is now "Palpatine." Just in case you were wondering.


  1. You know that I’m no fan of Obama, but comparing him to Palpatine is a bit much. This is really no different than the people who compared Bush to Hitler. Maybe I’m just an optimist but I can’t imagine that Obama is actually evil.

  2. ...I can’t imagine that Obama is actually evil.

    And that, of course, is exactly what he is counting on. Nobody likes to imagine, for goodness sake, that the president of the United States is doing his darndest to bring about the revolution, whilst masquerading as a patriot.

    All I'm telling you, Dave, is that those people--people with those very aims and tactics--are who he was raised around, hung out with, worked with, worked for, campaigned for, got to campaign for him, appointed to positions of power, etc.,etc., etc. Eventually, you have to go, I think, with one of those three options. I chose number one. My guess is that you are leaning toward number three.

    Either way, I think we can agree that the man doesn't deserve re-election.

  3. I certainly don't think he should get re-elected and hope that he doesn't. At this point, I would vote for the Donkey from Shrek before I'd vote for Obama.
