“Hook, line and sinker.”
Once upon a time, way way back in early 2008, in the disingenuous land of US presidential elections, a man named Barack Obama barreled suddenly into the TV news frame and caught the attention of a weary and beleaguered American public which was collectively utterly dismayed with the Bush presidency and ready for a BIG CHANGE in US leadership. With the full force and power of the Elite’s Establishment BIG MEDIA conglomerate behind him, a neophyte politician with little or no experience on the national scene ascended into full view of the American public as a presidential contender, his image presented in grandiose Jesusonian glory on dozens upon dozens of magazine covers splattered from one end of the country to another.
Barack Obama had by now conveniently forgotten his earlier “official statement” made in a 2005 interview, when upon being queried by a reporter about a possible run for the presidency in 2008, he quickly dismissed the notion altogether, explaining that he “did not have enough experience” to run for the highest office in the land. The reporter was stunned into silence for a few seconds before he went on to his next line of questioning.
Media portrayals of Barack Obama in 2008 were shamelessly calculated, airbrushed presentations of an upstart political and spiritual savior who could lead the country into some new unknown wonderful territory that so many longed for: something NEW, something exciting, something very DIFFERENT from the existing Status Quo.
Does anyone else recall any of this? Do you recall the problematic, overtly narcissistic imagery that was developed to SELL Barack Obama to the nation back in 2008?The whole charade might not have ever happened were it not for a woman named Rielle Hunter, and her chosen prey, Senator John Edwards.
The other top DNC contender for the 2008 presidential race had fallen backward so hard into his own fecal matter that it splattered everywhere and on everyone, ruining his chances of ever regaining credibility with the voting public. His name was John Edwards. You can thank John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter, for the fact that Establishment elites were suddenly scrambling in late 2007 for an alternative candidate who would lead the DNC charge to move the White House onto the Left Side of the political dog and pony show that we call “politics” and present the face of a so-called different position of leadership for the next 8 years of the unfolding of their pre-planned agenda.
Barack Obama was tapped as the new “IT MAN” in late 2007 and the wheels of the obscene BIG MEDIA MACHINE began to turn, churning out TV coverage, glossy magazine covers, astounding handsome white toothed interviews and endless coverage of every little thing the dark horse candidate did, 24-7. The next grand deception had already begun.
I first knew something was “up” with this guy when I visited a little known Israeli based news site called The Israeli-Insider, just by chance while surfing news sites, and read an in-depth well documented news report detailing the redaction of Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate, replete with high resolution images of the document.
“How odd,” I thought. Why would anyone ever need to “redact” [ black out, obscure ] part of their own birth certificate? It was early May 2008 and Hillary Clinton had by now been dethroned as the TOP CONTENDER for the DNC presidential nomination by Oprah Winfrey‘s personal endorsement of Barack Obama live on camera in front of millions of South Carolina voters. She’s the other woman you can thank for the sudden rise and meteoric ascendancy by Obama to the White House in 2008. And if you think that Oprah is always smart take a look at the lousy decision she made when she retired and decided to try to run her own TV network. But let’s not go there.
I decided to email this news story to several dozen MSM news outlets here in the states, a fruitless effort, which yielded nothing but silence. I received not a single reply from over 30 news organizations that I emailed the link to the Israeli Insider news report. I thought that was awfully odd too. Shouldn’t this be the biggest news story to hit the US in years? Wouldn’t reporters and the Press here in the US want to know WHY Barack Obama’s log form birth certificate had been redacted, and by WHOM? I didn’t know it at the time, but that moment crystallized my own decision to not just consume voluminous amounts of news reports from sources all over the world, but to start blogging about them too. It would soon turn out that I was not alone in my wondering out loud: Just who exactly is this guy, Barack Obama?
As fate would have it, there turned out to be many millions of other Americans who wanted to know more about this man than the official presentations which were being spoon fed to us, quipped out of the pages of “Dreams of My Father” which Obama had penned via a ghost writer speedily to create enough of a historical narrative about himself to pass as credible to the world public.
What ensued when Barack Obama ran for president in 2008 was the launching of an overt [ not covert ] social engineering national Psy Op media blitz to sell “the image of a man” on a scale not seen in modern times anywhere in America. Most likely it will not be seen again. [ Fool me once … et al ] There is nothing to which it can be compared, no precedent whatsoever.
That was then and this is NOW. Here we are, in the first year of the second term, a term gained by telling blatant lies to the American people about all kinds of things. Pick a topic. I need not expound. Barack Obama had blithely applied his NLP [ Neuro-Linguistic Programming ] skills onto the TV viewing public in the first paragraph of his acceptance speech on Inauguration Day 2009 when he slickly made reference to “my next eight years in office” – instantly re-electing himself, and demonstrating the mastery of aggressive mental suggestion by emphatically stating the wishful as an already established statement of fact. After I got up from falling out of my living room chair when he said this, I ran to the internet to see which news outlets had caught the cleverly inserted hypnotic command. Absolutely ZERO news media outlets reported a single phrase about this astonishing Freudian Slip. I was now convinced that something much more than ODD was afoot with this man. If I didn’t know better I would have almost called it “black magic.” But that would have been taken as racist. So I won’t call it that.
We are now saddled with a lame duck failed presidency which will only slowly, publicly and quite miserably continue to slip and slide downhill for another three years into the sewer of political nightmares which well ought to wash away with the other refuse. This is a presidency where a man’s entire soul vanity and legacy is being hung on a mishmash mess of a law [ Obamacare ] that has consumed the talents of the federal government for so long that the floundering economy is now dying, smelling in the sun like so much dead matter that needed an EMT back in 2010, when “hope and change” was still possible.
Obama has wasted 5 years on a law that will continue to falter, then fail, and will require more political minions from the other side to come in and clean up the mess in 2016, while the former Catastrophe-in-Chief minces away, out of the limelight and into retirement, leaving a nation feeling infuriated and bitch-slapped by the very man who was elected to help bring about “hope” and instead installed more hopelessness than can be recalled in modern times.
Enough of my opining about the many BIG MEDIA acts of overt political black magic which have taken the American people by STORM, overwhelmed and duped them, played them as fools, and then rolled over them, high high above their level of understanding, in the not too distant past. All of this only happened about 5-6 years old, yet it may as well have been decades ago for all we have been put through during this man’s tenure in office.
Will we be so foolish and gullible EVER AGAIN as to allow an orchestrated MEDIA TSUNAMI on this scale to brainwash millions of young, inexperienced, naive voters into electing a man to high office twice, who has now brought the nation to the brink of ruin? I pray not, and that’s why I wrote this piece today.
The presentation below is a small part of the colossal MEDIA DELUGE which was deployed by Corporate Elites to elect Barack Obama the first time, and to re-install him the second. It’s important for Americans everywhere to comprehend that “the image of a man” is not the actuality of a man. We need to aggressively and collectively VET our would-be leaders, and repeatedly, before we swallow the glossed over shallow presentations of them that are peddled to us in the press. In Obama, substance was superseded by image. Qualifications were replaced with good looks and photogenic attributes which dazzled, but never revealed the true inner abilities of the man.
I’d like to present images of Barack Obama as he was seen before [ in 2008 ] and today [ in 2013]. Time changes all things, doesn’t it?

Especially appalling is the October 2008 Men’s Magazine cover photo of “Barack Obama – male model – on it’s cover with the bold text reading: “Visionaries: 10 Icons of Genius and Style.” [ I am waiting at the ready for anyone to please inform me as to just exactly WHAT brilliant genius level things this man has done for the American people since he has been in office. Comments are open. Be sure to document your submissions with links. ]
A portrait of Barack Obama was presented with other painting at a Miami Art Gala in 2008.
