Obama’s Tortured Odyssey: From Hope and Change to Ebola and ISIS!





By John W. Lillpop


Whom would have imagined back in 2008 that the Barack Obama brand would be degraded and destroyed so thoroughly and in such quick order?

Barack Hussein Obama was hailed in the progressive media as a messianic figure with the charisma and power to alter reality with spoken words alone.  To liberals, Obama’s  eloquent words and towering rhetoric were manna from heaven; albeit, sparse in substance, but so full of hope and promise for the abused and powerless, that the details could wait.

For now, The One was offering a rare beacon of light for those looking for a figure manifesting the best qualities of Jesus Christ and Michael Jackson in one entity, and presumably capable of delivering the much awaited and longed for booty.

He would, he promised, end the “mind set” that caused mortal men to chose war in response to political, religious, and social disputes. His was the way of diplomacy and talk, rather than bullets and blood.

When it came to jobs and economic prosperity, he promised to provide both by demanding equality for all. Government regulation, rather than free-market capitalism was, needed to redistribute wealth from the haves to the deserving have nots, regardless of inequities in God-given ability or desire.

By granting government the power to decide whom should have what, and the power to seize private wealth as needed to assure economic balance as the state saw fit, he would simultaneously solve the problems of poverty and “immoral profits” in one stroke of genius.

With respect to religion, he saw Christianity as problematic at best. Which is why he chose to speak in Cairo, Egypt in 2009, before an audience of Muslims, and declare definitively that America was “not a Christian nation” to the absolute horror of millions of devout Christians.

Once again, as with matters economic, the state knew best.

And so it was that Barack Obama pursued his agenda which called for the “Transformation” of America to fit his warped vision of right and wrong.

Years later, all of his Utopian dreams have turned into nightmares for the American people.

Indeed, Barack Obama’s mantra of “Hope and Changed” has delivered Ebola and ISIS to the American people.

On November 4, we the people can vote out the brain-dead Democrats who have supported Obama’s unconstitutional and immoral plans to destroy America, and whom have been his “partners in crime” against freedom and liberty!

Democrats to "Get Out Black Vote" on Back of Gentle Giant?

By John W. Lillpop


Despite the best efforts of Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and other black leaders it now appears likely that Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO on August 9, will not be indicted by the grand jury investigating the shooting.

As reported at the reference:


Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun, and Wilson fatally shot the unarmed teenager after he moved toward the officer as they faced off in the street, according to interviews, news accounts and the full report of the St. Louis County autopsy of Brown’s body.

Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.

Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which cast Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case.

The grand jury is expected to complete its deliberations next month over whether Wilson broke the law in confronting Brown, and the pending decision appears to be prompting the unofficial release of information about the case and what the jurors have been told.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch late Tuesday night published Brown’s official county autopsy report, an analysis of which also suggests the 18-year-old may not have had his hands raised when he was fatally shot, as has been the contention of protesters who have demanded Wilson’s arrest.”

Should the grand jury, in fact, decide that insufficient evidence exists to indict Wilson, outrage among the black community may result in riots and civil unrest, in Ferguson and elsewhere.

Because the issue is heating up again so close to the November 4 elections, one cannot help but wonder if Democrats are intentionally leaking information suggesting that Wilson will not be charged in order to stir up civil unrest AND get out the black vote?

Can Michael Brown’s death save the US Senate for Harry Reid and Barack Obama?

After Cavorting With Ebola Nurses, Should Obama Be Quarantined and Sequestered?





By John W. Lillpop


Barack Obama made it perfectly clear that he has no respect for the Ebola virus and its potential to kill large numbers of people. In fact, the One joked about the fact that he shook hands with, hugged, and kissed nurses who had treated Ebola victims and, he boasted, “I do not have Ebola!”

All good and well sir, except for the fact that the virus has a 42 day incubation period, which means that you should postpone your victory trot until late November or early December, after the incubation period has lapsed.

In the meanwhile, just to protect the American republic and its 330 million residents, Barack Obama should be detained and placed on hold in a medically-supervised facility where his behavior and actions can be monitored closely by professionals, including mental health experts, to assure that no untoward hysteria or other signs of instability have further encumbered the community organizer.

He should be forbidden from issuing any Executive Orders, acting on legislation, or making war until the election results have been certified AND his sanity has been confirmed by professionals, evenly represented by Democrat and Republican doctors.

Ebola is far too dangerous to be left in the hands of an ill-informed,  community organizer constantly lies and who plays politics with all issues regardless of potential impact.

Obama Goes Macho on Ebola: Cancels Fundraiser, Hugs & Kisses Nurses!


By John W. Lillpop


American history is replete with examples of bold, courageous actions taken by US Presidents which have led the nation through dark and dangerous times: George Washington crossing the Delaware; Abraham Lincoln fighting to preserve the republic by ending slavery; FDR leading US into World War 11 after Pearl Harbor; and John Kennedy and the Cuban Missile crisis, are but a few of the more dramatic instances of exceptional leadership by great men when it mattered most.

Now, add to the list of historic figures the name of Barack Hussein Obama who, on October 15, 2014, showed the world that American Exceptionalism is still alive and well, notwithstanding leftist critics who argue otherwise.

President Obama, faced with the horrible potential of the Ebola crisis, stepped up to the plate and smacked a grand-slam-homer for America, and all of humanity, by exhibiting a “testosterone moment” that will be remember forever.

To begin with, the president set aside petty partisan politics, at least temporarily, and answered the more urgent call of the health and safety of the American people.

Specifically, as reported, Obama cancelled a scheduled fundraiser just weeks away from an election which threatens to end Democrat party control of the US Senate, and which could make life even more difficult for the president and his Marxist agenda:


“President Obama won't be traveling to New Jersey and Connecticut later today, as he had been planning to do. There he was going to raise money for Democrats up for reelection in November. Instead, Obama is going to be hosting Cabinet members for a meeting on Ebola. 
White House aide Dan Pfeiffer tweets: "Later this afternoon, POTUS will convene a meeting at the White House of cabinet agencies coordinating the government’s Ebola response."

Now THAT takes guts and dedication to the values that really matter most in America!

As if that were not enough, Barack Obama went even further by making note of his own personal courage and sacrifice.

As reported:


President Obama declared Wednesday that the dangers of a widespread Ebola outbreak in the United States are "extraordinarily low," pointing to his own contact with medical personnel treating a patient infected with the virus.
Speaking to reporters after a meeting with cabinet secretaries and other top federal officials, Obama said Ebola is being "taken very seriously at the highest levels of government," but stressed that the risk of infection for the average American remains very low.
Obama said he had been in close contact with nurses at Emory University hospital who cared for two American Ebola patients.

"I shook hands with, hugged and kissed not the doctors, but a couple of the nurses at Emory, because of the valiant work that they did in treating one of the patients. They followed the protocols, they knew what they were doing, and I felt perfectly safe doing so," he said.”

Imagine that: A sitting US president actually shaking hands, and hugging and kissing nurses who treated an Ebola victim!

Where in the annals of US history is there a more splendid example of courage and leadership on the part of the “most powerful man in the world”?

Of course, Obama’s hugs and kisses make excellent sound bites, but in no way do they do excuse the fact that Obama has still not imposed a travel ban or taken other more forceful actions to protect we the people from Ebola.

Sorry, Barry, but handshakes, and hugs and kisses are NOT the sort of leadership that America needs when it comes to Ebola!

Ebola Death in Dallas: Another “Intelligence Failure,” Mr. President?


By John W. Lillpop

Barack Obama’s greatest legacy may very well be his tragic inability to distinguish between legitimate danger and political folly in formulating policy. For example, Obama wastes an inordinate amount of time and energy fretting over global weather change which neither he nor any of the other  so-called world “leaders” can control, while ignoring, or denying, the rise of the Islamic state, the greatest terrorist threat in the history of the planet.

His second greatest legacy item may be his despicable habit of deliberately lying about his failures, as he did with the Islamic state, when he blamed the emergence of the sub-human, 7th century band of lunatics on the failure of US intelligence, when, in fact, it was Obama’s ego-driven, foolish belief that the war on terror had been won which caused him to reject news which did not match his warped sense of accomplishment.

Obama’s flawed character and low-information approach to governance has brought another potential disaster to America in the case of Ebola.  This president has been adamant in refusing to restrict travel to and from West African nations where Ebola continues to spread and kill.

His reaction has generally been “It can’t happen here” and other head-in-the-sand stupidity which defies explanation.

As reported at the reference, a traveler from Liberia and a known Ebola victim in Texas, has died:


The death of the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the United States renewed questions about his medical care and whether Thomas Eric Duncan's life could have been extended or saved if the Texas hospital where he first sought help had taken him in sooner.
Duncan died in Dallas on Wednesday, a little more than a week after his illness exposed gaps in the nation's defenses against the disease and set off a scramble to track down anyone exposed to him.

Once again, Barack Obama’s distorted judgment and refusal to act intelligently have combined to bring  tragedy to America.

Is the Ebola death in Texas yet another instance of failed US intelligence, Mr. President?
