Obama Is, Quite Literally, Unbelievable

For Barack Obama, speeches are not just motivational instruments or representations of a desired state of affairs, but feats of political transubstantiation where, if he utters them, words become reality.

It is a behavior not dissimilar to Adolf Hitler maneuvering imaginary German divisions from his Berlin bunker while Russian troops rampage throughout the city above him.

Delusional is the only term that I can muster to describe the chasm that exists between the words Obama uses and the differing reality into which they are dispensed.

In politics and foreign policy, words have power if they are truthful and followed by corresponding actions. When they lack authenticity, however, words degenerate into the coarse tools of a con artist, receptive only to the cynical or the equally delusional.

It is as if Obama is following the George Burns axiom, the key to success is sincerity: if you can fake that, then you’ve got it made.

Case in point was his 2014 commencement speech at West Point, which was little more than a collection of false assumptions and imaginary accomplishments.

“Al Qaeda’s leadership in the border region between Pakistan and Afghanistan has been decimated, and Osama bin Laden is no more. ”

Al Qaeda’s central leadership and its ability to direct operations from beyond its base in Pakistan has diminished; but its affiliate organizations, along with other terror groups, have grown more dangerous. The new State Department report cited 9,707 terrorist attacks in 2013, a 43% increase from 2012, according to statistics compiled by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.

“Through it all, we have refocused our investments in a key source of American strength: a growing economy that can provide opportunity here at home.”

The record shows that Obama, with his throwback, old-fashioned, 1970s Keynesian economics, has put America through the worst recovery from a recession since the Great Depression. America has fewer jobs, lower real median household income, and more poverty and income inequality.

“In fact, by most measures, America has rarely been stronger relative to the rest of the world. Those who argue otherwise – who suggest that America is in decline, or has seen its global leadership slip away – are either misreading history or engaged in partisan politics.”

Although Obama campaigned on a promise to increase America’s respect around the world, the failures far outweigh the successes: the death of four Americans in Benghazi and the subsequent attempts at a cover-up, his “red line” in Syria, “dithering” in the Middle East, and his “reset” policy with Russia that only allowed Putin’s Russia to increase its sphere of influence in Eastern Europe. College students, a core Obama constituency, overwhelmingly believe America is losing respect in the world under the leadership of President Barack Obama, with seventy-three percent believing that the United States is less respected by other countries than it was in the past.

“Here’s my bottom line: America must always lead on the world stage. If we don’t, no one else will.”

    Obama is an Islamic Extremist Muslim Socialist, with unequivocal tendencies towards fascism. One only needs to look at Obama past. Obama was raised as a spoiled brat; his mother and grandparents coddled and spoiled the man child boy during his formative years. Spoiled brats tend to become narcissistic, demanding, and disrespectful. Spoiled adults tend to have an overestimation of their talents and abilities and shirk responsibility if anything goes wrong. They must always be at the center of attention. The now Tyrant-in-Chief and his goons are embarking on a Third Position journey of Fascism. Somewhere between a socialist and communistic state lies Obama’s delusional grandeur that will play out in his warped mind.
