Can he make it to the finish line?
Or will his own silver tongue trip him up? Will he step again and again in his own doodoo?
. . . spattering the spectators, who are rooting for him, once too often.
Is it already time for us to use mixed metaphors on Obama? Or would that be overkill right now?
He--the O-man--is gasping right now. He lost his pace, his rhythm. It is time for mixed metaphors to toss between his feet, so as to trip him up!
Okay then, so here goes!
Is Obama melting down yet? Like the Wicked Witch of the North, are his dirty tricks the beginning of his end?
He has come crawling to the man who is not his biggest fan, the man whose own tricks and lies have left him less than a reputable "elder" statesman: Bill Clinton.
Did you-all know that ex-prez Clinton's wife, the much-beloved Hillary Rodham, also is a disciple of that self-same Saul Alinsky whose technique for radically subverting an electorate, a country--to get the so-hotly-desired POWER is being used by Obama?
The Marathon runner Obama is flopping like a landed fish, he is gasping for oxygen, sweating like a pig (with lipstick or no, doesn't matter, once a pig, always a pig--once a Moslem . . . )
OBAMA AND THE MARXIST'S ALINSKY'S RULES THAT HE FOLLOWS TO ACHIEVE ABSOLUTE POWER
. . . which corrupts absolutely.
How is Obama using it--the Alinsky technique for getting what he wants most in this world; POWER?
The rules that Obama follows are from the Communist Alinsky and from some other master manipulators as shown in http://islamicdanger4u.blogspot.com/2008/09/blue-print-obama-follows-to-achieve.html
Law 12 Use Selective Honesty and Generosity to Disarm your Victim
Watch him, at the O'Reilly interviews, at any venue where he cam be "warm" and generous and oh-so-disarming.
Law 13 When Asking for Help, Appeal to People’s Self-Interest, Never to their Mercy or Gratitude
He always stresses that the Change is for YOU, the people, not for himself.
Law 15 Crush your Enemy Totally
He's sure trying to do that to Sarah Palin.
Law 19 Know Who You’re Dealing with – Do Not Offend the Wrong Person
He fouled up on that one! Boy, did he ever! He should've known better. You f--k with the Clintons, you tried it with the wrong people!
Law 20 Do Not Commit to Anyone
He sure did not--to Biden. He wishes that he had chosen Hillary instead--as much as this would stick in his craw, it would have negated the Sarah Palin coup of McCain.
"In 1969, he [Alinsky] set up a training institute for organizers and wrote Rules for Radicals, in which he urged America's youth to become realistic, not rhetorical radicals.
This urging, Obama has either forgotten or ignored, because he is more rhetorical than realistic.
"By the early '70s, Alinsky concluded that America's poor would have to ally themselves with the middle class, whom he was afraid would move to the right. . . . he never got to organize the middle class. [He died]"
Obama may have tried to ally the Poor with the middle class, but, in my view at least, he failed miserably in that effort, if he did try. He alienated white middle-class voters by being racially divisive (Jeremiah Wright's church, the "guns and bibles" smear against whites, Obama's wife's utterance that this is a "mean" country.)
In his "Rules for Radicals," Alinsky writes: "From all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins – or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom – Lucifer."
Obama is no "Fallen Angel--no Lucifer," because he never fell, but rose from a less-than-reputable parentage to a "reputable" status with his non-African grandparents, and then Affirmative Action greased the skids that allowed him to slide up from Oriental college in L.A., through Columbia University into one of the two pinnacles of Ivy League universities' law school, where he was made editor of the Law Review but did nothing or very little of note in that position as he followed suit in the Illinois state senate and the U.S. Senate.
Only a bit above average in intelligence, Obama shows this at every turn, by inability to think rapidly on his feet, by not weighing the consequences of his frequent gaffes, and by unable to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances--always appearing the same would-be elitist. (Why "would-be?" We will show in a bit [in a future post] that Obama was "lifted up" to the academic and literary heights to which he pretends to have a right.) A sign of high intelligence is the ability to rapidly adapt to changing circumstances, a flexibility--lacking in Obama.
But then, high intelligence is not a prerequisite for a presidential candidate. It could well be a hindrance. (High intelligence in presidential advisers, however, is a requisite. An intelligent executive will always have advisers who are more intelligent than he is.)
Speaking of presidential intelligence, take Bill Clinton, for instance. He was a Rhodes scholar, Oxford and all that, but exhibited not much intelligence when he tried to pull the wool over the eyes of Congress and the American people by parsing words (what is meant by having "sex?" What is "is?")
Obama was given more than a boost to become the pretend "Elitist" he fancies himself to be (better than other people--white or black). We will present in a soon-to-be-released post here the molding of Obama into a "Candidate" by and of nefarious forces.
Back to Alinsky's equating the radical with Lucifer--the Devil: "The devil challenged authority and got his own kingdom, and that goes to the heart of what left is really about. That of course is to get power any way you can, including lying, cheating and stealing. The ultimate rule is that the ends justify the means." --Alinsky
Although never having been an angel, and not being a fallen one now, Obama is trying his darndest to follow the foregoing Alinsky rule. He challenged authority (or tries and is trying to) by bleating out his, "Change!" and "Yes We Can!" and by pretending that he is a complete newcomer to Washington--this pretense after a couple of years in the Senate.
The following Alinsky rule, Obama also tried:
Alinsky asserted that he was more concerned with the acquisition of power than anything else: "My aim here is to suggest how to organize for power: how to get it and how to use it." This is not to be done with assistance to the poor, nor even by organizing the poor to demand assistance: "[E]ven if all the low-income parts of our population were organized ... it would not be powerful enough to get significant, basic, needed changes."
Alinsky advises his followers that the poor have no power and that the real target is the middle class: "Organization for action will now and in the decade ahead center upon America's white middle class. That is where the power is. ... Our rebels have contemptuously rejected the values and the way of life of the middle class. They have stigmatized it as materialistic, decadent, bourgeois, degenerate, imperialistic, war-mongering, brutalized and corrupt. They are right; but we must begin from where we are if we are to build power for change, and the power and the people are in the middle class majority."
Obama did enchant academia, the media, and the leftist middle class, especially the upper echelons such as the Hollywood crowd. But where he fell flat on his face was with the working middle class, the blue-collar folks. He derided their love of God and guns--and that was a serious error. He tries to be folksy, but he comes across as pretending something that he is not. But then, what is he? He follows another rule . . .
. . . and that rule is at odds with "To Thine Own Self Be True." Obama remains a sketchy character, "Is he or isn't he?" remains forever the question, whether it concerns Moslem, Marxist-Socialist, or qualified to be Commander-in-Chief of our United States armed forces.
Now, here's an Alinsky rule that Obama DOES follow: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage."
He ridiculed Governor Sarah Palin from the git-go. He stripped her of her governorship and portrayed her as a small-town mayor. He ridiculed her executive experience which is a thousandfold more than his--because his is ZERO.
He ridiculed her pitbull-with-lipstick image by making her into a pig-with-lipstick.
This falls right into the Alinsky rule: "In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt."
Obama wants to gut Palin, but he had not figured on a pitbull's bite.
The Alinsky rule: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it."
(Think Gingrich, Lott and the success of name-calling used by the likes of Bill Clinton, Paul Begala, James Carville, Maxine Waters and others against conservatives and Republicans. Think of how Clinton "enemies" like Paula Jones or Linda Tripp were treated.)
Obama also applied this Alinsky tactic to Sarah Palin. I suppose he sees her--being a woman, with children yet--as a weaker target than McCain who withstood Communist torture and has demonstrated that he is one tough cookie.
Alinsky also said: "One of the criteria for picking the target is the target's vulnerability ... the other important point in the choosing of a target is that it must be a personification, not something general and abstract."
Again, why Obama keeps snapping at the heels of Sarah Palin--like a terrier. One can only expect the pitbull (with lipstick) to spin around and . . . we shall see what we shall see.
Alinsky: "The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength."
For instance, Democrats imply conservatives are racists or that Republicans want to kill senior citizens by limiting the growth of the Medicare system, they imply Republicans want to deny kids lunch money without offering real proof. These red-herring tactics work.
Obama follows this advice by goading--or trying to--McCain with "He's Bush's Third Term, they (Republicans) want to give a tax break only to the rich, etc. McCain, however, does not provoke. When his supporters strike back, they hit the same sore spots on Obama every time.
BUT, ALINSKY GAVE THE DEMOCRATS A MEANS TO GO ONE-UP ON THE REPUBLICANS: VOTER FRAUD!
Remember that Alinsky's advice was that the ends justify the means. Think of Florida in 2000 and the manipulation of military ballots. Think of Milwaukee and unattended polling places, which allowed leftist college students to take handfuls of ballots to check off. Think of a million immigrants in the 1996 election granted instant voting rights by the Clinton administration.
More importantly, think of South Dakota in November of 2002, or Nevada in 1998 or 2002.
In a brilliant bit of investigative reporting, National Review's Byron York gave us a grand overview of the corrupt and unpleasant outline of how Alinsky's rules work during election season. Republicans, once again asleep at the switch, live in the land of euphoria. They still believe that their Democratic counterparts are among the angels on God's right.
Considering that Alinsky expresses admiration for Lucifer, they are looking in the wrong place to find many modern Democrats. Republicans still assume that the modern Democratic Party, its media sycophants, its operatives during national or state elections, will play fair. It is hard to say which is worse, Republican naïveté' or Democratic cheating and law breaking.
When Democrats cheat, especially under Bill Clinton's and Terry McAuliffe's watch, they whine when they discover they didn't cheat enough to win. When they are caught in the big lies, they expect Republicans to ignore it and give them a pass. The last election in South Dakota is a case in point.
In the primaries and election of 2002, lawyers from Washington started showing up at polling places in the hinterlands of South Dakota. The Republican leadership and the establishment should have seen it coming but they didn't.
As Byron York relates in "Badlands, Bad Votes": "On Election Day, Noma Sazama knew something unusual was going on the moment she arrived at her polling place, the St. Thomas Parish Hall in Mission, South Dakota. Sazama, a member of the local election board, noticed several strangers in the room – an unusual sight in Mission, population 904, where most people know one another. It turned out the strangers were all lawyers, Democrats who had come to town to serve as poll watchers for the race between incumbent Democratic senator Tim Johnson and Republican John Thune. One was from Washington, D.C., another was from New York City, and a third was from California. 'There were no locals, and I've never seen that happen before,' says Sazama, who has lived in the area for 73 years."
Furthermore, York maintains, "The Democratic team of lawyers confiscated the Parish Hall kitchen only a few feet from the balloting tables."
Witnesses swore in affidavits that party hacks had rented dozens of vans and hired drivers to bring voters to the polls. Lawyers from elsewhere made the Parish Hall their headquarters. Seventy-three-year-old Ms. Sazama stated, "They had the names and time-of-pickup and whether someone voted on them, and from those he would contact the drivers."
Finally she understood that the influx of outside Democrats were going to use the polling place as their headquarters, an action which is against the laws of South Dakota.
The lawyers tied up the phones, which meant that the poll watchers and election officials could not make needed phone calls. York quotes the election supervisor: "They were on the phone using it to call I don't know where, and I needed to call because we had some new districting. They were always talking on it."
When Wanless, the election supervisor, protested, she got a chilly reaction from the out-of-towners. "I felt like they were trying to intimidate me," she recalls.
In fact, all this is against South Dakota law, which states: "No person may, in any polling place or within or on any building in which a polling place is located or within one hundred feet from any entrance leading into a polling place, maintain an office or communications center. ..."
There were no Republican lawyers or authorities around to inform election officials that it was against the law for the Democrats to be running their campaign from a polling place. That was bad enough, but ever since November Republicans have failed dismally to make it a BIG national issue.
There was also complete failure to understand Alinsky's second basic rule: "Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear and retreat." The DNC counted on the locals being intimidated by a gang of high-priced lawyers – and of course they were.
Another Alinsky rule used in the November elections in South Dakota: "In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt." In other words, what you do is count on the failure of will by your opponent to call a foul. The opponent usually believes it is easier to do nothing, it is always easier to do nothing, and so Republicans "move on."
That is the kind of apathy Hitler's forces counted on in the Weimar Republic. The end-justifies-the-means cabal figures that even good people find it easier to do nothing.
In South Dakota, lawyers from diverse places were part of a brigade that the DNC uses to "ensure voters' rights are protected." But as York relates, "According to the testimony of dozens of South Dakotans who worked at the polls, the out-of-state attorneys engaged in illegal electioneering, pressured poll workers to accept questionable ballots, and forced polling places in a heavily Democratic area to stay open for an hour past their previously-announced closing time.
In addition, the testimony contains evidence of people being allowed to vote with little or no identification, of incorrectly marked ballots being counted as Democratic votes, of absentee ballots being counted without proper signatures, and, most serious of all, of voters who were paid to cast their ballots for Sen. Johnson."
According to some witnesses, Democrats were also running car pools out of polling places on the Indian reservations, where investigators are discovering that the dead Indian vote had a major impact on the slim, last- minute, 524-vote Tim Johnson victory over John Thune.
Affidavits from South Dakotans also indicate that money probably changed hands in crucial areas in the boonies. It was not gas money for van drivers either, but paying per head per vote – shades of Tammany Hall and the elections in Boston wards. Nonetheless, Republicans have decided to "move on."
To get the entire story, including affidavits sworn to by South Dakota residents, read York's November article in National Review Online.

WHAT OTHER RULES TO ABSOLUTE POWER DOES OBAMA FOLLOW (or at least tries to follow)?
This from http://islamicdanger4u.blogspot.com/2008/09/blue-print-obama-follows-to-achieve.html
Law 22 Use the Surrender Tactic: Transform Weakness into Power
Obama uses that a lot. See the Bill O'Reilly interviews and his pretend weakness on many occassions. Do not trust the perception that he is weak. Bill O'Reilly (not one of my favorites) even said that Obama is a strong man, a powerful adversary. Obama, however, appeared inept and oft times pitiful when faced by the formidable Bill O'Reilly.
Law 27 Play on People’s Need to Believe to Create a Cultlike Following
Now that one Obama did a superb job on! He has a mindless mob that regards him as the Second Coming, the Redeemer, the return of the Messiah.
Law 30 Make your Accomplishments Seem Effortless
Dashed off two best-selling books, with no prior literary experience or even attempts. wonder how Obama accomplished that? There IS an explanation, and I will give it to you in a near-future post.
Law 34 Be Royal in your Own Fashion: Act like a King to be treated like one
Obama sure plays that one to the hilt! The Royal couple, Camelot Revisited, etc.
Law 37 Create Compelling Spectacles
Yep! Rememeber the Greek Temple on the stage of a football stadium to bedazzle the adulating masses?
Law 42 Strike the Shepherd and the Sheep will Scatter
He, Obama, tried that with the "Shepherdess" and it didn't work! Sarah Palin's followers did not scatter. And they will not. Because she has what Obama does not have: Sincerity, genuineness, not a facade to cover up--in Obama's case--heaven-knows-what.
Law 45 Preach the Need for Change, but Never Reform too much at Once
Is that why Obama never says what Change he will bring?
Law 46 Never appear too Perfect
That's why the shirt-sleeves, the "cool" look at times, when not in a perfectly-tailored suit.
And, folks, here's the clincher:
Law 48 Assume Formlessness
Obama follows that rule to a "T." He's neither black nor white, he's maybe a Moslem and a Christian, and if the latter, a believer in an African, black Christ--or is he? His origins are murky. His association with Marxist radicals in the past and at the present are disowned and belittled. He is for Israel and for the "Palestinian" Arabs, he is for Jews and for Louis Farrakhan, he is upper crust and a pretend member of the "poor," he is for the working class, but has never worked with his hands for a day in his life. He has never held a "real" job, where you have to show a profit for an employer. He "organized communities," that he regards a a nonpareille accomplishment--not saying that the communities he organized were for his personal benefit so that they would vote for him for the state and then the U.S. Senate. Now, however, he no longer needs the "communities" that he organized to boost him onto power. He is after bigger game. Will you be that? Will you let Barack Hussein Obama achieve ABSOLUTE POWER?
LET US MAKE IT SO!
