"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter trough it are many.  How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life.  And those who find it are few.
Matthew 7:6 14
The scandals proliferate, our relationship with the world is in tatters, the country grows poorer,  our national security is a joke and Obama ignores it all with all of the insolent disdain he can muster and simply move forward to the next round of actions designed to dissolve the nation.
With the immigration bill and his proposals to destroy the coal industry Obama proceeds apace, fearful  of the 2014 elections, to hurriedly finish what he has always promised to do…fundamentally transform America.  His critics are divided as to whether or not he is merely naïve or the pursuer of a more malevolent agenda.  Count me in the latter group.  It is naïve to believe he is simply naïve.  It is time to face facts and believe what your eyes see and ears hear and not what a supine and spineless media and press feeds you daily as fiction disguised as reality.

The technology we have created to control massive amounts of data on individuals may prove to be the greatest monster of all time.  It is a vessel wherein the most enticing, addictive and intoxicating temptations of man may be stored and then be drunk.  This is something greater than sex or money.  It is the lust for power and dominion over our fellow men and it comes with all the false justifications that is salve for the conscience of humanity.  National security, economic freedom and equality, human rights and social justice all come in counterfeit guise to convince and beguile the user and the used that what is done is for the best. 

This is the minefield that man has had to negotiate through out history.
The American solution was a map through this wilderness of human failings within a house built with virtue as its foundation, the law as the walls and roof and a rigorous education as the doorway to the sanctuary provided within.

This house is our Constitution and Declaration of Independence which when adhered to with wisdom and courage has made us exceptional among the nations of the earth. 

This present crisis illustrated by the cascade of scandals that have become daily revelations is our worst crisis and the greatest test as to whether this house…our house…can remain standing and in good repair.

The shelf life of politicians is getting shorter.  It used to be the third term that proved to be the temporal venue where the citizens grew weary of the dearth of new ideas or at least ideas that made no sense.  Time has a way also of orchestrating the unwilling downfall of those who have come to believe that a public life is  the only life for them.  Longevity in the public eye  makes many believe that the genius of their resistance to defeat has somehow imbued them with a majesty that exists only in their own minds.
Obama is starting to feel the pangs of normal politics as well he should since the cascade of appalling scandals on his watch would have long ago retired a normal politico to either obscurity or prison.  But our Obama is no normal politician.  Part myth and part illusion ( or delusion) he has ascended Olympus on terms negotiated with  the voters that establish him as the father figure for the country and not its leader.

D DAY JUNE 6.1944

On June 1st the weather turned bad and the Generals thought that all their plans, deceptions and strategy might, after all this time, have to be postponed. The allies needed a full moon and the spring tides to make this, the most ambitious and largest amphibious landing in history, even remotely successful. Ike had set June 5th as the invasion date for Operation Overlord, but on June the 4th the weather became truly foul and the seas so turbulent that the next day was both literally and figuratively a “washout” The full moon so critical to this invasion of “Festung Europa” was due the next day… June the 6th.

Group Captain J. M. Stagg was Eisenhower's chief meteorologist and on June 5th, when asked about the next day, told the Supreme Commander that he detected a possible break in the bad weather and essentially on that projection the decision was made to invade rather than wait another 30 days for the next lunar cycle to complete itself. The operation, planned by a team under Lieutenant-General Frederick Morgan, was again the largest amphibious invasion in world history and was executed by land, sea and air elements under direct British-American command with over 160,000 soldiers as well as 195,700 Allied naval and merchant navy personnel in almost 7,000 ships.

Hitler had been convinced that the invasion was targeted across the Straits of Dover for the Pas de Calais, the shortest distance between England and France. Accordingly he had made his “Atlantic Wall” defenses stronger there than at the southern beaches of Normandy. He was also convinced that the 1st United States Army Group commanded by whom many considered ( with the notable exception of Field Marshal Sir Bernard Law Montgomery) the allies best General, George S. Patton would lead the invasion.. In fact the 1st Army Group was a fiction and Patton and his phantom army turned out to be one of the most elaborate and successful ruses in warfare since the Trojan Horse. None of that however improved Patton’s peevish mood with regard to not leading this operation notwithstanding the fact he was still in the “Doghouse” for infamously slapping a shell shocked soldier in Sicily he believed to be a coward when he commanded the 7th Army.

It is not the young people that degenerate; they are not spoiled till those of mature age are already sunk into corruption.”
Charles de Montesquieu

This week we have watched the country begin a convulsion as the mask of honest government is ripped away and we have to confront the terrible decisions that “we the people” have made. Years from now history will ask the question “What in the world were we thinking of when we first elected a man with no past to lead the world’s greatest democracy…and then after ample evidence he was not up to the job …we elected him again.
Were we so drunk on the promise of “ transcendent change” that we forsook even a reasonable inquiry of what that meant? Was it the glitter of his persona, so exotic and yet so perfect for this moment of delivery from the shackles of the dull conventions of a Constitution made suddenly obsolete? Did the demanding roar of “we can’t wait“, make us lose all our faculties for self preservation and all our values ?
Now we stand like a deer, in the headlights of an oncoming tragedy that will shape our lives and the history for our children in ways we never contemplated when we went to vote and the only question left to answer is will we do the right things to keep ourselves safe and free?
