The revelation making the rounds again about Obama, how he sneaked through $221 million to his terrorist friends the Palestinian Authority during the last hours of his presidency, makes it elaborately clear that he was always in it for himself and for his pals.
For eight years Israel was betrayed and America was duped by a charmer.
I remember a movie that starred Tony Curtis in “The Great Impostor.” But there have been others like it, like Matt Damon in “The Talented Mr. Ripley” -- about men skilled in the art of deception. Through guile, a ready smile, a quick tongue, they charm their way up the ladder from one bamboozled household to the next.
Their papers are never in order, but they manage. They manage to reach the top. Both Curtis (whose film was based on a true story) and Damon did not know a thing about medicine or airplanes but they managed to run hospitals and to fake it as pilots. They got caught. But before that they had everybody fooled.
Sound familiar? Surely not to Progressives who wanted to be fooled or didn’t really care. So long as Obama was their choice he could do no wrong.
But to the rest of America, and the world, the damage bitterly lives on.
He armed Iran to the teeth. The mullahs grow bolder and now Obama’s generosity is President Trump’s problem. Where did Obama get the money to enrich all those terrorists? Came from our pockets – the Constitution be damned, according to Obama and the news media that babied him every single day for eight years.
All by himself Obama proclaimed that he did not even need Congress. He said, “I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone” – so forget the rules.
So much, then, for the claim that Obama did not have the Constitutional right to wiretap Trump….which is the hot news of the day.
That assumes that Obama as President cared about the Constitution, taught the Constitution, or ever learned the Constitution.
They say he taught it at the University of Chicago. Who says? The New York Times. So that is reason number one to be skeptical.
Has any former student of his ever come forward – a fellow professor to share the pride?
It’s the same about his place of birth. The reason we don’t know for sure is because we do not know the media for sure. They can’t be trusted.
They covered up for him from one betrayal to another, from one scandal to the next, and that is why we are in this fix.
We are all victims when the truth must fend for itself.
We have The New York Post and we have Fox News, but after that we are in a wilderness of deception.
From today’s Times we hear that Trump has fired 46 Obama leftovers at the Justice department who remained planted to him harm. Well, that’s a start.
But from the establishment news media we do not know about the rapes and murders from the hands of illegal immigrants. Nor about migrants from Arab countries, including Iraq, who arrive first as beggars and next swagger on campus to bully Jewish students.
Nor do they inform us that the Women’s Movement has been compromised and hijacked by Palestinian Arab convicted terrorists. The New York Times won’t tell, and neither will the networks – all of whom remain part of the same hypocrisy that delivered us Barack Hussein Obama.
His schemes went beyond running a hospital. By hook and by crook, he managed to run a country. There was no one to stop him.
The news media knew the score. They had to. No one can be that stupid. But they chose to keep us in the dark.
Was all of it an act? If so, there has never been a hoax quite like this anywhere in the world throughout history.
