Every voting American’s eyes and ears should be focused on the qualifications of Barack Hussein Obama to continue as Commander in Chief of the United States of America. This last phrase regarding Commander in Chief is one I use to elevate even further the pomposity of the bloated Obama himself and do so for the pleasure of wooing my leftwing non-Marxist Democrats who might be disgusted with this foreigner Marxist from Columbia and Chicago.
My favorite, my beloved super leftwing non-Marxist Democrat is my daughter who is coming to town soon, the first visit in nearly a quarter of a century to the land and house where she was raised……or, kinda raised.
She is bright, verbal, gifted, and remaining faithful to so many of her sex, ditzy politically and educationally, for her entire reason for existence has been ballet, both as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher. Of my three children, she is the most like her father in countless ways…..but, I think I shall avoid listing them here. My friends and readers can figure out my drift.
My beloved daughter has not liked her midwestern father since she was about two and a half years old. I noticed that way back then, and was amused by it. We both had personalities more furnace-like than anything Buddhist or the cool mists of mountainside Delphi in March.
We have both mellowed some since……and therefore her first visit home.
Being female and despite her native mental gifts, she is unable to discuss any political, religious, or cultural topics of concern regarding family or nation. She wouldn’t know where to begin to articulate matters, but she, by the grace of her leftwing gods, knows she is right on all matters. She lives on Manhattan and would never find a way to challenge them.
Silence, therefore, keeps her mind pristine of all dust and breeze, even the gold and cool.
Dennis of Prager fame speaks so eloquently about ones love for family and the invasions of ObamaMarxism into our once serene American cultural and political world. We never have had a president whose person and entourage have acted like a Soviet gangsters before. Like this gangster and his politically correct police everywhere, if one is to keep peace in the family or neighborhood, one may never refer favorably to any opponent of this Marxist Commander in Chief lording over you and me.
We have never had a president who dislikes the nation and so many of its people which he ‘leads’. Yet, we have had four years and more to examine him and his qualifications.
That cannot be done, however. The American establishment press won’t allow it. The American establishment left wing university has become Marxist religiously and politically and do its preachings and spread its censorings.
Does the part of the president which is black, the part which he has clearly chosen as an asset, demand that no one from his other half speak anything but Godlike praises or face the basest in political bombardments?…..such as lying, cheating, bullying, intimidating, race bating, character assassinating, censoring, obfuscating anything and everything possible to bury his opponents.
Has he no shame? Is he the reincarnation of the fevered Joseph R. McCarthy but stationed on a much higher throne?
I happened to come across the following article by Thomas Lifson, a conservative with the American Thinker, dated, August 21,2008, of before real Obama time. His title, OBAMA’S LOST ANNENBERG YEARS COMING TO LIGHT, turned out to be false for the mainstream press kept the Soviet squeeze on anything which might not tingle a voter’s leg about the rising gangster Chicago politician.
“The cloak of media invisibility is slowly beginning to lift from Barack Obama’s most important administrative leadership experience, helming an expensive educational reform effort in Chicago that failed to produce any measureable academic gains, according the the project’s OWN FINAL REPORT.
Add in the fact that former Weatherman and admitted terrorist William Ayers (whom Obama described in the Philadelphia debate as merely a “neighbor”) was head of the operating arm of the CAC, working with Obama on distributing scores of millions of dollars to grantees in the wards of the city, and you have a topic that the Obama campaign wishes to avoid at all costs.
A compliant media has averted its eyes so far. A timeline of Obama’s career from George Washington University omits it. Why the McCain campaign hasn’t raised more questions on the subject is a question beyond my pay grade. But there are signs it is on the case.
The four plus years (1995-1999) Barack Obama spent as founding chairman of the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) represent his track record as reformer, as someone who reached out in a public-private collaboration and had the audacity to believer his effort would make things better. At the time he became leader of this ambitious project to remake the public schools of Chicago, he was 33 years old and a third year associate at a small Chicago law firm, Davis, Miner, Barnhill and Galland.
This was a big test for him, his chance to cut his teeth on bringing hope and change to the mostly minority inner city school children trapped in Chicago schools. And he flopped big time, squandering lots of money and the time of many public employees in the process.
Given Senator Obama’s lack of any other posts as leader of an organization, someone unschooled in the ways of the American media might expect that for months reporters have been pouring over the records of the project to get an idea of how it managed to fail so badly. Examining the track record of the guy who wants to lead the federal government would seem to be part of the campaign beat for media organizations.
But as a matter of fact, until recently, only a few bloggers were looking into the most important organized effort ever led by Barack Obama, prior to his successful campaigns for public office.
THE COVER UP
Now, it appears a cover-up is underway, in order to prevent journalists and reseacrchers from getting access to the records of this charitable project housed in a taxpayer supported library. And there is a mystery:
The UIC Library says it is acting on behalf of the donor, whom it refuses to name.
It took Stanly Kurtz, of National Review Online to ask permission to see the files held by the publicly-funded University of Illinois Chicago (UIC). After initially agreeing, The Richard J. Daley withdrew permission……..”
I never really knew how deep and profound and rather animal-like a father’s attachment to his children could be, until that day my first arrived home, December 20, 1965. I couldnt sleep all night, almost all week, on alert every second to pounce on anything and everthing real or unreal which might endanger that precious miracle lying in his tiny basket crib. Never was my wife more sacred. I had three ‘younguns’ who have never in any way altered my guard dog instincts.
Eventually, their existence and my real-life experiences beyond government employment and the outstanding public school teachers of my youth, so many of them learned old maids, and the solidness of the family and church from which I was raised, led me to discover why good people like Shelby Steele became conservative who has written so beautifully about it.
