We can all save a lot of time (and Tylenol) by simply acknowledging the fact that Barack Obama is a Machiavellian “Prince.” The Prince does what is needed, and he is the one who is feared. His use of force will be needed to achieve and hold his power.
He doesn’t have to tell you the truth. He doesn’t have to obey the law. The rules don’t apply to him. He can do whatever he wants because he is the Prince. If you ask him a question, he is going to lie about it. He is also going to lie to America’s allies and conspire with our enemies. He will compromise the Constitution because that’s what Princes do. And if you ask for his birth certificate, he’ll make one.
He is like a road repairman, covering up all the potholes. As soon as you find a hole in his story, he’s going to rush over and cover it up. Machiavelli advised that “one should avoid being despised and hated.” Obama missed the mark on that one, but nobody’s perfect.
With a hefty dose of Karl Marx, Obama’s dreams of his father are a “legal and political superstructure… and social consciousness”. . where the government allocates values for its citizens based on demand.” And Obama IS the government. (OK, who wants to line up for Little Debbies?)
This is a far cry from the Magna Carta and the Constitution. The Magna Carta was written by a group of 13th-century barons to protect their rights and property against a tyrannical king. It is the bedrock of Britain and British Law (and as we already know, Obama despises anything British.) You’re never going to catch him at the Renaissance Festival.
There are two principles expressed in the Magna Carta:
“No freeman shall be taken, imprisoned, disseised, outlawed, banished, or in any way destroyed, nor will we proceed against or prosecute him, except by the lawful judgment of his peers and by the law of the land.”
“To no one will We sell, to no one will We deny or delay, right or justice.”
Obviously, they don’t teach the principles of the Magna Carta in Indonesia, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Egypt, or Saudi Arabia. They don’t get it.
The Magna Carta served to inspire and justify action in liberty’s defense. The Founders embedded the philosophy of the Magna Carta into the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Obama wants no part of it.
The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution (“no person shall . . . be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”) is a direct descendant of the Magna Carta’s guarantee of proceedings according to the “law of the land.”
We need to confront ourselves with the truth and stop whining about our predicament. No more White House press conferences, asking the same old tired questions. No more Fox News trying to figure out what Obama is thinking. No more birthers waving a phony birth certficate, asking for an explanation. No more wondering about Benghazi, or Obamacare, or terrorists visiting the White House.
Face reality. Obama sees himself as an etherical philosophical creature, like Puck (no pun intended.) He immersed himself in the contemporary plutocrats but strictly avoided anything to do with Kirkegaard. Obama’s morality is based on Islam and the reformed Christian doctrine “Do unto other before they do unto you.”
