The Great Campaigner (Updated!!)

12/2/08 Update: There are two important blog posts to read that contain updates about the Donofrio vs. Wells U.S. Supreme Court "private, full-court meeting" on December 5, 2008.

1. Citizen Wells

2. The Right Side of Life: Donofrio v. Wells, Wrotnowski v. Bysiewicz: Major Updates on Conference, Cort’s Renewed Application

One part of the update that I was previously unaware of is this (from Citizen Wells):

If 5 of the 9 Justices respond in the affirmative, they could grant a stay of the Electoral College vote.



*******

Recall that song by the Platters (and Sam Cooke) called "The Great Pretender?" For some reason, that song came to mind as I awoke this morning. However, I thought that the lyrics could be tweaked a bit to fit Obama. Admittedly, he was "the great campaigner" in this election cycle. Plus, he had a LOT of help from the liberal left media circus that refused to vet him properly and gushed sugary adoration for a man that no one REALLY knows.

I mean, do YOU really know much about Obama - especially about his history?

I don't.

There is much speculation out there. A lot of assumptions. But don't blame the public for any misinformation floating around in the blogs. It is truly Obama's fault. He has refused to allow the public to see his important records and papers from his past - which would dispel any information that is not true or accurate.

I ran across yet ANOTHER article about Obama that revealed some new information about him. It is hard to discern what is true or false in the article. In some sections, it gets quite bizarre.

The most documented part of the article was about a slew of parking tickets Obama got while in college. There's more, but a lot of it sounds quite strange and over the top. It is hard to know what else is true or false. I can say one thing though, the person presenting the article attempted to do a lot of research on the guy.

Now, before Spud Tooley comes along and tells me that I need a "reality check," please see both the blog post which asks, Is Obama Folding Under Pressure?" and the RSS widget reader article which states, Obama: Was he sent to save us? that I found over at Yid with Lid.

As I reviewed going through several articles and posts in my mind that I had read yesterday, I started to attempt to put some sense into what is going on in the media vs. the blogosphere.

These thoughts included the video of Obama's interview with Barbara Walters, the post (link above) about Obama's past, and the discovery of a full page ad that is to run in a Chicago newspaper today and on December 8th. Zach Jones sums up what Obama will be facing over the next several days.

Many bloggers have come up with various reasons as to why the media won't touch this story...yet. Isn't this just so frustrating?

While posting comments at The NEIN blog, I wrote the following:




This birth certificate fiasco makes me feel like I am living in the Twilight Zone!

I keep imagining that someone will one day hold a news conference and step up to the microphone at the podium to tell the nation -

"April Fools! Obama isn't really going to be president. It was just a ruse! ha ha! Isn't that funny? This was just a huge, two-year long, very expensive, time-consuming, tax payer money grubbing, manufactured financial crisis, pepto-bismol slurping, and "radicals-in-our-nation-exposed" experiment to see what portion of our electorate is totally uninformed...and really dumb!

Now that we have our results we will return our nation back into the hands of the people...where our U.S. Constitution says it belongs.

Ready for an election "do over?" Have a nice day!"

/sarcasm off


Does anyone else out there have similar feelings about this bizarre election, too? It is amazing to me that the Media of Mass Deception is keeping mum on the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court "private" meeting regarding the Donofrio lawsuit against Obama.

I mean - come on!! It's almost like the "Emperor has no clothes" story. People pretending (in the MSM, that is) that everything is going smoothly for Obama. He's busy creating his Cabinet appointees (which looks like a third term for the Clinton Administration), appearing with Barbara Walters for an interview (where it is told that Obama has developed an eye twitch - but I wasn't able to spot it), and carrying on like there is nothing for him to worry about as far as the birth certificate fiasco is concerned; or, even showing any concern about whether or not the electors will follow through on his appointment to POTUS. Yet, in the blogosphere, there are huge amounts of information that is getting out there to the public.

Isn't this surreal?

I could link to dozens of blogs and posts where well thought-out posts and comments have been published. Why is the media pretending that this huge issue doesn't faze them or exist?

I found it ironic that during his interview, Obama stated to Walters, "I don't have any power right now." Yet, he holds news conferences with that dumb "Office of the President-Elect" on the podium - giving the high flaunting impression that he does have some sort of power. I have asked this question before. Does anyone ever recall an incoming president-elect creating a podium with such an office title on it? I can't.

And where is Joe Biden? Maybe he's active on the NBC channels that I never watch. Anyone know what he has been saying lately? Perhaps he still has that muzzle on that was placed on him late in the campaign because of all of those infamous gaffes.

And then it came to me. That horrible thought that I had way back when I suspected that Obama would choose Biden for his V.P. pick as payback for keeping the Larry Sinclair story under wraps. Now, I am thinking that there is more to the story. Could all of this be a ruse in order to get Biden into the presidency? If Obama is sworn in, and then found ineligible, the 14th Amendment to the Constitution would allow Joe Biden to step in as president. He would then need to choose a V.P. candidate.

I know. Total speculation on my part. But I couldn't shake this nagging feeling this morning. All of the research that I have done (and have discovered through other bloggers) tells me that We the Voters have been HAD - BIG TIME! It makes me very uncomfortable to even write this. How horrible would it be for the Democrats to have pulled such terrible stunt over on the people?

Joe Biden could NEVER get elected on his own - NEVER! Yet, with the help of a Jr. Senator from Illinois who has the tremendous speaking ability that he has - and the rich donors like George Soros with the money to back up his well orchestrated campaign - a "Great Campaigner" could get Biden into the presidency via this convoluted fiasco, masquerading as an election, that we have just witnessed over the past two years.

Perhaps you are thinking that this is just too far-fetched for anyone to believe. I agree with you. Just strike those last two paragraphs from this blog post.

Or is it that far-fetched?

[Updated Note: My theory is just that - only a theory. In fact, what I also SHOULD have stated earlier is that it is possible that the DNC and Obama campaign never even dreamed that they would ever get caught in the "natural born citizen" debacle. They probably thought that they could easily get away with it! They might have - if not for some persistent lawyers like Berg and Donofrio!]

Anyway, I wanted to bring over a "blogment" from Thursday's post because it deals with how the Media of Mass Deception has enabled "The Great Campaigner" to get elected. You will see the tactics and techniques used - and how 62% of the electorate apparently fell for it - hook, line, and sinker.

I am STILL PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE - that Obama is prevented (if deemed ineligible - because a lot of evidence points towards him not qualifying for POTUS re: the "natural born citizen" clause in Article II of the U.S. Constitution) from taking office. It is HIGHLY IMPORTANT for this to be discovered BEFORE the Inauguration, otherwise, the Usurper in chief will pass on his fraudulent candidacy to Joe Biden.

Ugh!

In case you missed it in the comment section of my last post, here's my blogment which reveals how the public has been duped by the Media of Mass Deception:

I have been praying every day for a miracle that will save us from the most radical and dangerous, Marxist administration ever.

The Media of Mass Deception (MMD) isn't about to destroy their "marketing blitz" and image of Obama that they want the public to hold.

I don't think that they will ever report on the issue unless they absolutely have to.

Why?

Lots of reasons!!!


I have been reading a book called, Media Revolution which exposes the tactics that were used in the pro-Obama media campaign. There is much more detail in each of these categories, but for now, I will just list them and briefly describe them.

1. The Name Game

This tactic uses semantic twists and turns that seek to take a term with positive connotations and use it to promote a concept previously viewed with distaste. One of the best examples is the use of "pro-choice." The cold-blooded willingness to kill an innocent child in the womb was coined with the word, "pro-choice" in the 1960's and 1970's in order to convince Americans that killing babies in the womb was a fundamental right guaranteed by the Constitution. Pro-abortion wouldn't work - but using the term "choice" appeals to Americans' deeply ingrained sense of liberty and fairness. The term deflects attention away from the murder of an unborn child. Even Christians have become willing accomplices in the "pro-choice" name game. How utterly sad it is that they have fallen for an absolutely repugnant lie!

This is why I often call it the "pro-death movement." Because that is exactly what it is!

Obama is the most radical, pro-death-to-unborn-babies, leftist liberals in the Senate. For him to have been elected to POTUS is astonishing. A certain percentage of Christians and Catholics voted for him. They completely ignored his pro-death to babies in the womb policies. Such a terrible shame!

2. The Blitz.

No one can deny that the pro-Obama story blitz was extraordinary in its volume of repeated messages (hope! change!) it's bombardment and constant barrage of the same idea or action step and the advertising that backed Obama practically at a 100% level on T.V., newspapers, magazines and even in many areas of the Internet.

People succumbed to this mesmerizing hypnosis without truly investigating the man and his more sinister purposes.

Unfortunately, many of the Americans who voted for Obama were "garbage-in, garbage-out" people (though, some may not have known they were being had). They were heavily influenced by what the MMD (and the Obama campaign) put into their minds over the course of this election cycle.

I'd like to remind my fellow Christians (especially those who may have voted for Obama) that God instructs us to meditate on the Scriptures night and day. In Joshua 1:8 the Lord commands Joshua, "This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it." In Psalm 1:1-2 we read, "How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night.

I won't go heavily into the rest of it here, but suffice it to say that a statistic shared by the author (Brian E. Fisher) states that most Americans spend almost 3 hours per day watching T.V. and only 7 minutes per day on religious and spiritual activity. What a sad statistic!

3. Say What?

This tactic takes a half-truth and promotes it as a broadly acknowledged fact. I think that this one fits extraordinarily well with the Obama birth certificate/ U.S. citizenship debacle.

This tactic is also constantly being used by groups like the ACLU which promote the "separation of church and state" lie (which, btw, ISN'T IN THE CONSTITUTION!) by taking it out of context to promote their own agenda.

The truth is, our Founding Fathers had no intention of evicting God from government - as so many have done today. The men who drafted our Constitution considered the Christian faith to be essential to good government.

4. A Major Rewrite

This tactic is used by the MMD to revise history to suit contemporary purposes. This can also be considered a tactic used by the DNC, Obama campaign, and supporters in order to have avoided the proper vetting process of Obama's citizenship. If this case goes on to the full Supreme Court review (I PRAY IT DOES!) then the Obama side will try and argue that the 14th Amendment "takes away" the natural born citizen clause in Article II. From what I have read, that may be a tough sell. There is also the dual-citizenship issue at stake.

5. That's Un-American

Basically, this tactic is used against people (who passed Proposition 8 in CA) who may stand up against what they believe is wrong (e.g. the judges in CA who created "gay" marriage out of thin air by judicial fiat in CA); yet, opponents who wanted "gay" marriage - are now busy protesting (rabidly) and labeling all who voted for YES ON PROPOSITION 8 as bigots and haters (and every expletive you could think of) because they perceive this as being a "right" taken away from them. We have been told the lie that restricting anything that anyone wants to do is "Un-American."

I think that this tactic is being used by the MMD right now - in their complicit silence on the pending Supreme Court meeting on the Obama et. al. eligibility issue.

This tactic is also (very unfortunately) being used to allow child pornography under the guise of "free speech."

6. Odd Man Out

This is a BIG ONE! The MMD uses this tactic to make the viewer/listener feel that his or her traditional biblical values are isolated and idiosyncratic. They want biblically-based Christians to believe that we are all alone in our objections to anti-biblical values.

Why do you think that Obama's "Christian faith" is acceptable to the MMD? Because he doesn't follow the traditional biblical values in God's Word - that's why! His political views are just like "the world's" - not accountable to God's written Word and certainly not accountable to Jesus Christ. Jesus told us, "if you love me, keep my commandments."

Obama has broken (politically speaking) almost every commandment and has shown the world this by exposing his hard-core liberal/licentious worldview for all to see.

7. Silence of the Lambs

The MMD bullies people who hold traditional values - thus, some Christians keep quiet because they don't want to be seen as intolerant or hateful people.

Examples of this are so numerous, it would take me hours to type them all out. Suffice it to say that each incident of such "silencing" is a tactic employed to create the inaccurate stereotype that all Christians are obnoxious, violent prudes who are a danger to a free society. The truth is, however, that true Christians are the most loving, compassionate, truthful people on the planet.

Though Christians (and churches) are not without mistakes, the truth is that the countless acts of grace, charity, assistance, love, commitment, fidelity, faith, and hope is not being portrayed correctly by the MMD. If they ever did report the truth, there would be a monumental shift in public attitudes towards evangelical Christians.

8. Didn't Moses Build the Ark?

This tactic includes diversions meant to keep us distracted from the basics of our faith.

The fact that Obama does not overtly practice true biblical Christianity appeals to all of the detractors of true Christian faith. They like the "Christian-faith-light" (meaning - not geared towards evangelism, true adherence to Bible truths, or, any mention of the cross of Christ) mindset of Obama. His particular "brand of faith" is not threatening to them (unlike the true Christian faith shown by Gov. Sarah Palin - thus the MMD endless attacks against her).

They don't even mind the Catholic-light-faith of Joe Biden! If Biden had adhered to many of the Catholic church teachings (such as pro-life, pro-traditional man and woman marriage) do you think that the MMD would have attacked him? You betcha! But, of course, a pro-life Democrat would never get the V.P. pick in the first place.

The questions raised in this tactic are:

Overall, is the church impacting the culture?

Or has the culture been far more effective at absorbing and silencing the church?

Christians have become fearful to offend. That's the bottom line, people. Why do you think that the "seeker-sensitive" church boom is so effective? Yes. It's effective - at producing false converts! Why? Because before the Good News of the Gospel is preached, the bad news of our sinful condition must be realized. Unfortunately, Christian believers today are so caught up in the worldly mantras of "never offend anyone" they are of no earthly good for the Gospel of Christ!

When it comes to proclaiming eternal truths that actually might offend a sinner in need of the Savior, Jesus Christ, we shy away out of fear they may not "like us."

Well guess what?

The Gospel IS OFFENSIVE to those who are perishing! If we don't repent of our sins, then we are only guilty of "amusing ourselves to death."

The proclamation of true godly principles often hurts and offends. Period.
For every person who is humbled and changed by the truth, there are ten who reject it, scorn it, and hate it.

Think about this. Who in the Bible acted according to the principle of making everyone around them feel comfortable when it came to the subject of confession of sin and repentance? Can you name even one?

Sharing the truth is an act of love and obedience on our part!! Please don't ever forget that!

Christians may never do such a task perfectly (no one can), but our Lord Jesus has given us the Great Commission here on this earth and NOTHING should divert us from that task.

"Dirty Pool" at the Supreme Court apparently on behalf of Obama currently usurping YOUR Constitution: Leo Donofrio's companion case, brought by Cort Wrotnowski, with fuller/better briefing showing Obama is not an Article II "natural born citizen" reportedly has been sidetracked to the anthrax lab to deprive the full Court from seeing those filings in connection with Donofrio's case this Friday, Dec 5, 2008. DO SOMETHING AMERICA!!!

Christinewjc said...

Ted -

What? Was this done as a precaution due to a threat or was this just another stunt done by that Danny Bickell court clerk?

This is weird.

No worries, though. It appears that some additional good news has been shared over at the new Natural Born Citizen blog!

Excerpt:
Let me reiterate the main point: DONOFRIO V. WELLS was distributed for conference of December 5, 2008 by the full Court after a prior referral of the application by Justice Thomas.

Mr. Donofrio will be on the Plains Radio Network tonight. See Plainsradio.com for details.

Wanted to make another point in my post and here in the comment section.

I SHOULD have also stated that it is possible that the DNC and Obama campaign never even dreamed that they would ever get caught in the "natural born citizen" debacle. They probably thought that they could easily get away with it! They might have - if not for some persistent lawyers like Berg and Donofrio!

[Quote}It is amazing to me that the Media of Mass Deception is keeping mum on the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court "private" meeting[EndQuote]

With a majority in congress, you must wonder if the judges will be scared of impeachment or being called incompetent for going against the will of the Democrats and I hope you noticed that I didn't call it "the will of the people".

The Supreme Court went through this before with Kerry and the court asked "Why are we here?" Maybe someone can put this in perspective for me but the last court victory wasn't a confidence builder for me and who knows what warnings the justices received from Democratic lawmakers or how sore the Democrats are over that. And because the Democrats punished Joe Lieberman then I'm thinking they might even try to punish the courts. I think it would further divide America for them to do that but they would call it justice for Kerry losing through the courts.

This is just theory, Spud. No need to get upset.

spud tooley said...

upset? you guys are easily the best entertainment dollar i spend all week.

the few that i have left after bailing everybody out, that is...

i shake my head so much when i come to talkwisdom i'm thinking about installing my own personal bobble-head to save me time...

i have to go vote for jim martin, now. your heroine, sarah plain and dumb, came through our state in a whirlwind tour yesterday, whipping the PBR crowd into support of a guy named 'Saxby', if you can believe that. not too many rednecks named 'Saxby' that i've ever met... but the fact that he doesn't 'represent' them really doesn't even occur to them in their gun-totin' hoopin' and hollerin' for the wasila whacko.

us centrists down here are praying please, please, please God let sarah become the face of the Republican party... :)

i'm flattered, christine, that i keep seeing my name in your posts. i'm beginning to think you like me...

didn't read anything anywhere yesterday about souter's 'demands' to see obama's birth certificate. i'm sure we'll hear something today ... this must be news somewhere, i'm almost certain.

Ah! (Or, should I say "Baaah") It's Spud!

Talk Wisdom's black sheep has returned!

Boy have I got a blog post for you!

Election 2008 Revisited: Why Obama Won

Bah bah black sheep
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir
Three bags full!

heh heh

spud tooley said...

well, i clicked on that link, and read until i got to this:

Me: What? Obama hasn't allowed anybody to see his grades, meaning he didn't graduate at the top of his class.

anyone who makes these kind of logical inferences is the poster child for the problems we have in america: assertions posited as facts that are built on faulty propositions. at least sean hannity gets paid for his stupidity and deception; whoever wrote the post at the link you gave me would be overpaid if i offered him a penny for his thoughts.

'by your fruits shall ye know them': the intelligent observer (me, at least on this blogsite) will note that obama has made extremely pragmatic selections for cabinet positions and chief advisors. he is not - and never was - the left-wing extremist you all painted him to be. he's exactly the kind of person we need as president - put all the facts in front of him and let him make a decision that fits them, as opposed to shooting first and asking questions later - the modus operandi of the last eight years of executive branch unleadership as well as talk wisdom and other sites like it.

which is why i keep coming back: keep your friends close, and your enemies :) closer...

still haven't heard anything from souter.

mr

Christinewjc said...

Mike,

It is a fact that Obama has not released his college grades to the public. Thus, NO ONE KNOWS whether or not he graduated "at the top of his class." Such a pronouncement by the person at the other blog SHOWS THAT HE IS SPEWING UNSUBSTANTIATED RHETORIC that he has obviously heard via the Obama campaign.

Spud wrote, "Obama has made extremely pragmatic selections for cabinet positions and chief advisors."

First stupid pick. Janet Napolitano to Homeland Security Secretary??? Arrghhh! Let the illegals run wild!

Second stupid pick. Eric Holder as Attorney General?? The guy who was involved with Clinton's pardon of commodities trader Marc Rich? Rich fled to Switzerland in 1983 while being prosecuted on tax evasion charges. Clinton pardoned him in 2001 just before he left office. Critics contended that Clinton issued the pardon because Rich's former wife had made substantial donations to the Democratic Party and Clinton's library.

It appears that nothing is changing - same ole' lying, weaseling, corrupt Clintonoid Democratic Party as in the 90's.

No hope. No change. Just the same ole' corruption that the Democrats are known for.

Yep...the college kids who voted Obama in were too young to remember the mess that Clinton left behind - except for the sex in the White House contribution he made public to millions of middle school and high school kids.

Christinewjc said...

I have been receiving emails from concerned Christian blogging friends who worry that the SCOTUS may NOT do the right thing regarding the Obama "natural born citizen" controversy.

That may, in fact, be true. Perhaps they will shirk their oath of duty to uphold the Constitution of the United States and allow a travesty of justice to occur.

I PRAY that it does not work out that way.

However, if it does, we can still take heart - because God is forever on the throne of heaven. The promises of Jesus "overcomes" even the worst circumstances here on earth.

November 30th was my birthday. I didn't get around to reading the devotional sent that day to my email mailbox. I read it today and here is what it said:

Faith's Checkbook by C.H. Spurgeon
Sunday November 30, 2008
Christians Unite Devotionals


God Is in the Front Line

The Lord, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

In the presence of a great work or a great warfare, here is a text which should help us to buckle on our harness. If Jehovah Himself goes before us, it must be safe to follow. Who can obstruct our progress if the Lord Himself is in the van? Come, brother soldiers, let us make a prompt advance! Why do we hesitate to pass on to victory?

Nor is the Lord before us only; He is with us. Above, beneath, around, within is the omnipotent, omnipresent One. In all time, even to eternity, He will be with us even as He has been. How this should nerve our arm! Dash at it boldly, ye soldiers of the cross, for the Lord of hosts is with us!

Being before us and with us, He will never withdraw His help. He cannot fail in Himself, and He will not fail toward us. He will continue to help us according to our need, even to the end. As He cannot fail us, so He will not forsake us. He will always be both able and willing to grant us strength and succor till fighting days are gone.

Let us not fear nor be dismayed; for the Lord of hosts will go down to the battle with us, will bear the brunt of the fight, and give us the victory.


This spoke to me in a great way. Hope it helps each reader here as well.

Christine

Christinewjc said...

One more thing, Spud.

Looks like Holder participated in the pardoning of the Weather Underground terrorists!

Ugh! No double ugh!!!

Copy of the article:

The Republican National Committee (RNC) alleged today that former Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder, a member of Barack Obama's vice presidential search committee, participated in the pardon of one former Weather Underground member and the commutation of another's prison sentence, revealing Obama's hypocrisy in criticizing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) for her husband's extension of clemency to the two radicals.

In an April Democratic debate, Obama deflected Clinton's attacks on his relationship with former Weather Underground member William Ayers by noting that her husband, President Bill Clinton, pardoned one member of the group and commuted the sentence of another.

"[B]y Senator Clinton's own vetting standards, I don't think she would make it," Obama said, "since President Clinton pardoned or commuted the sentences of two members of the Weather Underground, which I think is a slightly more significant act than me serving on a board with somebody for actions that he did 40 years ago."

But Holder participated in the pardon and commutation, the RNC alleged in a memo to reporters today.

The RNC cited Justice Department procedure, which calls for the deputy attorney general to sign all letters of advice to the president recommending decisions on clemency petitions. An attorney working under the deputy attorney general reviews clemency petitions and drafts the letters.

Since Holder served as deputy attorney general when President Clinton granted clemency to the two radicals, the RNC alleged, he must have participated in the decisions, revealing Obama's hypocrisy in the RNC's eyes.

*******

Ummm...what was that you were saying about Obama's "good picks" for his Cabinet and staff, Mike??

What an ugly web of deceit and criminal activities the Democrats continue to weave...

12/2/08 Update: There are two important blog posts to read that contain updates about the Donofrio vs. Wells U.S. Supreme Court "private, full-court meeting" on December 5, 2008.

1. Citizen Wells

2. The Right Side of Life: Donofrio v. Wells, Wrotnowski v. Bysiewicz: Major Updates on Conference, Cort’s Renewed Application

One part of the update that I was previously unaware of is this (from Citizen Wells):

If 5 of the 9 Justices respond in the affirmative, they could grant a stay of the Electoral College vote.

Thanks for another informative and insightful post- this site is a great example of the importance of the blogosphere in a mass-media world.
