Barack Obama has had a tough year, the poor thing. His media pals are already trying to position him as a victim. Of course, he’s the only victim in human history to jet all over the planet to luxury vacation digs, play golf hundreds of time a year, and command the most powerful military on the face of the earth. Still, if things keep up the way they’re going, his approval rating will be a half notch above gum disease by Valentine’s Day. If there was one thing that he should have taken from his 20 years in Rev. Wright’s Church of the Black Panther, it’s that chickens, or in this case, lies, do come home to roost. The Regime’s carefully orchestrated deception scheme allowed their man to out run the truth until after he was safely re-elected, but now that the drape has been snatched down and the ugly reality is there for everyone to see, he is in serious trouble.
The forward-looking Obama regime had to reach back to the Clinton’s “Secretary of [Expletive]” to attempt a resuscitation of a presidential term on life support. That’s why they made a 911 call to a long-time lefty apparatchik, George Soros crony, and veteran of the Clinton White House, Jon Podesta, the creator of the eponymous “Project Podesta.” From David Horowitz’ Discover The Networks:
This was a system that enabled the Clintons to push through unpopular policies that neither Congress nor the American people wanted. Its implementation marked a dramatic tilt in the balance of power, giving the executive branch an unprecedented ability to force its will on the legislative branch.
Project Podesta enabled the President to bypass Congress through the use of executive orders, presidential decision directives, White-House-sponsored lawsuits, vacancy appointments to high federal office, selective regulatory actions against targeted corporations, and a host of other extra-constitutional tactics.
In short, Podesta showed the Clintons that they could gain by force what they might fail to achieve through legislation. “Stroke of the pen. Law of the land. Kind of cool,” quipped White House aide Paul Begala to the New York Times on July 5, 1998, in response to questions about the Clintons’ growing disdain for the will of Congress.
What what do you know? Bypass Congress? Does any of that sound vaguely familiar? Is it just me, or is anyone else sensing a pattern?
Podesta’s also the mastermind of the 2000 election litigation, as the DTN profile notes:
Project Podesta reached its logical conclusion in Al Gore’s effort to litigate his way into the White House in 2000. During the infamous 36-day, post-election stand-off, Podesta worked behind the scenes with Gore’s legal team even as the Clinton White House publicly declared its neutrality. Podesta bears personal responsibility for forcing the election into the U.S. Supreme Court.
From over at his Center from American Progress, Mr. Podesta has been urging Obama to go full banana republic since the American people rejected their left-wing agenda in the 2010 midterms. If there’s one thing that this lawless, gangsta administration needs, obviously it’s this guy.
This latest edition to the hope and change administration, recently gave an interview to the gang over at Politico, notable for two reasons. First, we learned that Podesta has quite a temper, so much so that staffers created a nickname for his dark side, “Skippy.” And the other big revelation: Skippy no like conservatives. He told Politico‘s Glenn Thrush ““They need to focus on executive action given that they are facing a second term against a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress,”
Stop and think about that. A radical leftist, imprisoned by ideology and therefore incapable of critical thinking, who is attempting to rescue the presidency of a man swept into office by a media-created cult of personality, is demonizing his political opponents by accusing them of being in a cult? What’s next? Is Michael Moore going to risk upsetting Jennifer Lawrence by calling people “fat?” Obama supporters are the ultimate Kool-Aid drinkers. Mr. Podesta, like all leftists, you’re projecting.
Ironically, most of the people who drank the Kool-Aid at Jonestown were African-American. Was it wrong to mention that?
