The long strange ride of the Obama presidency drags on. This time last summer in 2009 I was blogging hard and staying up late to keep up with the exploding rage of the new American Tea Party Movement, as the outrage of everyday Americans exploded over a number of urgent and topical issues: the excessive spending of the Obama administration, socialized medicine in America, illegal immigration, securing the southern USA border, Obama’s Kenyan birth origins, Obama campaign lies told to get to the White House, the terminally swelling federal deficit and the eventual outright fury which was unleashed against the Obama White House over Obamacare after it was passed over the loud objections of the American majority.
The ugly truth about this faux presidency was gushing like a firehose by July 2009. Obama’s mysterious non-USA [possibly Kenyan] birth origins and the legal battle of several prominent patriots to bring the attention of Congress to this fact engaged far more people than just the “fringe far right wing” that the MSM tried to paint for us. Eventually home video surfaced this year from the 2008 campaign where Michelle Obama is heard giving a speech where she clearly states that her husband is Kenyan. One would think that a public admission such as this would have garnered an incredible amount of MSM attention as a final smoking gun on the sad and sorry topic of where Obama was born, but no. Not a single mainstream outlet will touch that video with a ten foot pole, which is exactly why a blogging portal such as this one exists. Suffice it to say the MSM is not interested in knowing, investigating or broadcasting the truth about where Barack Obama was born, or what his policies are doing to our nation.
Last summer the mass media had also begun to try in futility to marginalize American Tea Party outrage over the Obama presidency as “astroturf” – which is to say, make-believe, disingenuous, unreal, artificial, politically contrived. Nothing could have been further from the truth, and this idiotic accusation of course, only made average Americans who make up the Tea Party movement even more angry. Glenn Beck was now sprinting live on-air to keep up, while electrically charged, irate and highly visible “2009 town hall meetings” across America last summer practically sizzled with very genuine, very real, and very authentic outrage at how everyday Americans were being portrayed in the press for the way they felt. The media war between actuality vs. MSM doublespeak became a hot contest of perceived actualities: Tea Party personalities like Sarah Palin and Andrew Breitbart scorched the MSM in their rebuttals of it’s overt lies and misrepresentation of the American mood, the American demographic that made up that mood, and the emerging Tea Party movement itself.
Great Britain’s Orwellian NWO high society fear of these new patriotic firebrands and other American truth tellers took on new meaning as American bloggers like me discovered that many American blogs and websites are not accessible via British servers. The way I discovered this was by conversing online via private forum with a UK member of one of my other news sites, who told me how hard it is now to access certain USA media outlets and blogs from the UK. I’m not sure why I was so surprised to learn this, as by last summer most Brits had their guns all taken away as well as most of their civil rights trampled.
British citizens still look to the American people to stand up for what is right, and in the long run I do not believe that we will fail them.
Last summer I was often posting often 4 5, 6 items a day on the topic of our dreary new Obamanation and all that it entailed. The now famous Obama Joker Poster came out last July and visually pretty much summed up the way Americans everywhere, of both political parties, and of no party in particular, were now feeling about Obama, which was utterly betrayed by a fast talking, opinion morphing, and nonstop politically shapeshifting jokester of a Commander-in-Chief.
2009 was the summer of the Great American discontent with the Obama White House “business as usual” mode of operation, and in my opinion, it changed the face of American politics forever.
Below is a list of the top twenty posts from this blog’s first year online. Some of the posts reflect what was going on last summer, others just happen to capture the downfall of yet another former great American myth of a man: Tiger Woods. In that sense, I truly belive that Tiger Woods and Barack Obama have something else in common besides being black: they are both “Icarus men“: fallen public mythologies who must endure daily the hard cold facts that their media calculated mythologies do not match their visible actualities, and that now everyone everywhere worldwide knows it.
Maybe that has something to do with the odd timing of Queen Elizabeth II’s speech to the UN yesterday. For the first time in 57 years she travelled from the UK to NYC and addressed the United Nations in a 20 minute speech. Her short speech left more questions than answers as to “why now”. But I wondered if even the Queen has begun to notice the very public unravelling of Obama’s angry and unhappy America. Perhaps she wanted to re-assert a little bit of much needed insight, dignity and proper protocol again into our disheveled and disheartened American political landscape. For whatever reasons, it was interesting to observe as the aging Monarch approached the UN podium, commanding more real respect and deference from her audience than Barack Obama will ever receive, no matter what speech he gives anytime, anywhere. She has been a world leader since 1952. He has been a lackluster leader-in-training for a year and a half. No contest. In her speech she called for leadership. I am quite certain I know why. Never has it been more apparent than this oil coated summer of 2010 that America needs REAL leaders: Doers, not talkers.
What we all have learned to date in his first year and a half is that the one thing Barack Obama does well is give speeches. But giving good speeches does not a great American president make. We need leadership, real leadership, decisive brilliant leadership in America, and we need it in a hurry. America is hemorrhaging her essential national pride, her sense of true military direction, her dollar, her economy, and raw crude oil in all directions.
S.O.S., Lord…. S.O.S.
