Read Obama Gets His War On by Daniel Greenfield.
Here's what I got out of it.
... the media ... no longer ... report on the antics of a former community organizer
who was busy sketching out plans for an illegal war
SHAMELESSNESS is the quality that Barack Obama's antics ... and Miley Cyrus' antics ... have in common.
Not merely a shamelessness ... but shamelessness as their fundamental attribute.
A shamelessness ... of not being bound by anything at all.
... Obama was once anti-war.
In 2007, he told voters that the president does not have the authority under the Constitution to unilaterally go to war unless
there is an urgent threat to the United States. Now he's planning a SECOND war in which the ONLY urgent threat
is to the military prospects of HIS ISLAMIST ALLIES FOR TAKING OVER ANOTHER COUNTRY.
Obama's shamelessness isn't incidental to his actions;
it's their whole point.... he is celebrating HIS LIBERATION FROM ANY STANDARD OR VALUE, triumphing over them THROUGH ATTITUDE ALONE.
And in a world WITHOUT MORALS OR VALUES, the only thing that counts is POWER AND THE WILL to use it.
... the tawdry spectacles expose the elemental thing that is left behind WHEN ALL VIRTUES AND VALUES FADE AWAY.
Without these things, the human animal becomes just that,
A REPUGNANT AND IRREDEEMABLE spectacle
that attracts the like-minded and REPELS EVERYONE ELSE.
Without these virtues, why shouldn't Obama BREAK HIS WORD and get his war on?
... it's only a dilemma IF you have morals.
If you don't, then
it's NO LONGER A MATTER of
what the right thing to do is,
BUT WHETHER YOU CAN DO IT.
Or as Aleister Crowley put it,...
"DO WHAT THOU WILT shall be THE WHOLE of the Law".
That is the cheerful maxim ... for the drama of reality television.
Its real entertainment product is PEOPLE DOING WHAT THEY WILT and becoming famous for it.
... everything that MTV stands for;
tacky, desperate for attention and in the real world, pregnant at 16. ... cheerful amorality,
maintained by invisibly huge amounts of money,
that tells viewers that THAT THEIR OWN AMORSLITY WILL ...NOT HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
Bill Clinton was our first MTV president.
Barack Obama is our second.
The decline in MTV neatly matches the descent from Clinton to Obama,
but what unites them is THAT CHEERFUL AMORALITY that can TRIUMPH OVER ANY CRIME.These are men whose CREED IS "Do what thou wilt"
and like so much of our political and entertainment elites,
they have been doing it.They have been GETTING THEIR WILT ON.
Obama has decided to get his war on. Again.
Though REALLY, France and then the UK DECIDED THAT AMERICA SHOULD get its war on.
And to be STRICKLY ACCURATE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar DECIDED AGAIN that their FINANCIAL PUPPETS in the UK and France,
licking their lips at a taste of their oil-fed sovereign wealth funds,SHOULD get their war on
even while CUTTING their militaries to be the bone.
Formerly ANTI-WAR France is on its THIRD war in three years.
This will be the SECOND war for its newly elected Socialist government in JUST THIS year.
That's impressive for a bunch of cheese-eating surrender monkeys
who were supposed to be our role modelsBut France has always been renowned for its cheerfully AMORAL politics.
in navigating the subtlety of international diplomacy.
Role models don't hold up too well under fire.
Just ask ... any of the anti-war activists who thought that Obama would be different.
THE MAN WHOSE ONLY CALLING CARD WAS THE PEACE SIGN, is about to launch his SECOND war.
And if bombing Syria goes well, THERE'S ALWAYS EGYPT.And if the TUNISIAN PROTESTERS follow their lead and DARE TO BOOT their Islamist masters,
THEY might get a few cruise missiles headed their way in Operation Caliphate.
Obama's premature gift of a Nobel Peace Prize has become one of the MORE ABSURD footnotes in his career.
... he seems to be doing his best to leave behind his old anti-war reputation.
Now he can hardly wait for the UN inspectors to finish their job in Syria
before squatting at a table and nodding CLUELESSLY
WHILE BEING TOLD WHERE the bombs will fall first.
If hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue, as La Rochefoucauld said,
our elites have decided to dispense with the tribute.Not only will there be NO MORE VIRTUE,
but the dealers in vice will NOT EVEN BOTHER WITH THE HYPOCRISY.If the balance of our society has been TILTED FORCIBLY from virtue to vice, as most recent developments suggest,
then the ... hope and changers no longer feel that they need to bother EVEN MAINTAINING THE APPEARANCE OF VIRTUE.
Last time around, Obama had already begun the Libyan War BEFORE he told the American people.
This time, the Syrian War could begin at any time,
but will possibly be PRECEDED by the release of a report.
Or maybe the report will come out later,
as the man WHO SHOULD BE president IS ACTING LIKE AN EMPEROR,
and the emperor is naked ....
Alinsky's fourth rule is MAKING THE ENEMY LIVE UP TO HIS OWN CODES.
BUT WHAT IF THE ENEMY HAS NO RULES, ONLY WILL. That is the unreal space occupied by a former community organizer from Chicago ...
WHAT IF THE ENEMY HAS NO VALUES AND EXIST ONLY TO BE SEEN.
Where there are NO VALUES, there can be NO HYPOCRISY.All that is left is THE TRIUMPH OF THE WILL.
The VMAs are a calculated spectacle in the same way that Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will was
and in the same way that the latest Obama speechIt is A FASCISM OF THE SPIRIT that glorifies THE DISSOLUTION OF THE INDIVIDUAL in A SECULAR RELIGION of power and privilege.
pledging to act unilaterally on his latest plan if Congress does nothing.
Their theme is the triumph of THE WILL OVER MORALS,
the power of the individual TO DOMINATE CROWDS through no special virtue EXCEPT DETERMINATION.
Miley Cyrus did what she did BECAUSE SHE COULD.
The goal was the most priceless commodity of modern culture; ATTENTION.Obama's triumph is BEING NOTICED.
In a crowded digital world, the only thing that matters is BEING SEEN.
It is THE SECRET of his success.In a crowded digital world, THE TRIUMPH OF THE WILL is not physical or intellectual, let alone spiritual,
but that quality of COMPELLING OTHERS to become aware of YOUR existence
and TO INCORPORATE YOUR existence INTO THEIR reality.
... Obama will go to war BECAUSE HE CAN.
It isn't even his idea and it isn't a good idea, but THAT DOESN'T MATTER.... If you're an anti-war liberal who makes it into the White House,
you have to SHOW EVERYONE that you've grown up by getting out there and GETTING YOUR WAR ON.
It's what the audience expects.
For months now, the Washington Post and the New York Times have been URGING Obama to go to war.
France and the UK have been BEATING WAR DRUMS even longer.
Qatar and Turkey have been CRYING FOR WAR BEFORE the last one wrapped up.
Eventually the NAKED emperor HAD TO go out there and give his international fans what THEY wanted.
Obama was TENTATIVE when it came to his first war,
but he's an old pro at it now.He knows that NO ONE WHO MATTERS WILL JUDGE HIM FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS.
It's all in fun
and it distracts the unemployed people eating soup out of a can from wondering
IF THEY'RE GOING TO BE EVICTED TOMRROW OR TODAY.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner has grown up.
He knows that THE PUBLIC DOESN'T MATTER.
He knows that CONGRESS DOESN'T MATTER.
He knows that THERE IS NOTHING BETWEEN HIS WILL and the might and FORTUNES of a nation.
And HE'S DOING WHAT HE WILL WITH THEM.
He might bomb Syria for a few days, as he's claiming and as he FALSELY claimed of Libya, or a few weeks or a few months.
The military has been CUT TO THE BONE and RETASKED to celebrating gay weddings and green energy,
but there are enough bombs LEFT OVER to make for some spectacular fireworks Every show needs a good closing number
as the Al Nusra Front and their Free Syrian Army allies make it to Damascus
TO SLAUGHTER THE LAST CHRISTIANS THERE.
and THE BURNING OF THE LAST CHURCHES in Syria while the bombs burst overhead will be the performance of a lifetime.Maybe Obama will even get Miley to sing.
There will be criticism, but as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said of Benghazi,
"What difference does it make anyway?"What difference does ANYTHING MAKE in THE ABSENCE OF MORALS.
Without them, THERE IS ONLY POWER AND THE WILL TO USE IT,
whether it is the power to bomb a nation or take your clothes off.
The only way to PROVE WILL is through ACTION.
The ability TO DO A THING implies A NEED to do it.
If a thing CAN be done, it MUST be done.And so WILL DISPROVES ITSELF
as the ability to do a thing FORCES YOU to actually go ahead and do it
TO PROVE YOUR WILL, WITHOUT REGARD TO WETHER YOU WANT to do it OR NOT.
Our society SLEEPWALKS towards these inevitabilities of power WITHOUT EVER ASKING WHO IT WAS THAT DECIDED on their inevitability.
Transformed FROM a society of virtue INTO VICE, we wonder WHY we are slipping INTO TYRANNY AND CORRUPTION of every sort.
RESTRAINT IS A VIRTUE.
With ONLY the VICE of power, the ADDICTION of will, there is NOTHING between us and THOISE WHO WOULD DESTROY US
but the NAKEDNESS of THEIR power.And the moment that THEY CAN DEPRIVE US OF OUR RIGHTS AND DESTROY US, THEY WILL.
Tomorrow, Obama MAY fight Syria.
But the rest of the time,
HE'S FIGHTING US.
Ooops. Looks like they just lost France.
QUESTION: Do you believe that he ordered this attack?
MS. HARF: I dont know the answer to that.
King Barry must be desperate for a way to misdirect attention onto Syria so he can help his brothers in Egypt. He’s probably in a panic over the MB in Egypt being taken apart.
I’m shocked! ...... NOT
RT as a source again. Yeha, the Russians have no stake in pointing the finger at the rebels. And just what do they mean by “the rebels”?
The finger is being pointed at Assad’s brother.
The fact that Assad delayed in letting the UN into the area & continued to attack it, apparently means nothing to the Russians.
I like that mind set. Now can we focus on Recently Convicted Former Major Hasad and his terrorist activities?
“Well, lets be clear. The commander-in-chief of any military is ultimately responsible for decisions made under their leadership, even if command and control hes not the one that pushes the button or said, ‘Go,’ on this. And again, I dont know what the facts are here. Im just, broadly speaking, saying that he is responsible for the actions of his regime. Im not intimately familiar with the command and control structure of the Syrian military. Im just not. But again, he is responsible ultimately for the decisions that are made.”
Oh. Oh. Oh. So! When are we going to charge OUR criminal, coward in chief with international crimes against humanity and murder in the nth degree at Benghazi??????? In Mexico? In Honduras? In Egypt? In Libya? And who knows where else.
“”The fact that chemical weapons were used on a widespread basis against innocent civilians, with tragic results, is undeniable,” said the White House spokesman, Jay Carney. “And there is very little doubt in our minds that the Syrian regime is culpable.””
Really Jay? If the MSM wasnt weairing kneepads they would be all over your sorry butt for that comment.
Notice the silence of the anti-war movement? They are simply commie agenda tools.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Hussein is just throwing crap at us behind his little cage at the zoo.
If she does not even know what she believes, she is not competent to be a Statist Department Spokeswoman.
Hmmmmm. So it appears she DOES think Obama is responsible for the abusive and unconstitutional actions of the NSA, the IRS and the Ministry of Statism.
No no no!
You’re all wrong.
They just don’t have enough MONEY to organize any more anti-war protests!
Didn’t you see the stories yesterday?
...in the United States.
Yes but old Joe Biden is 100% certain it was Assad. She needs to get with the program--or with the propaganda points from on high.
Gee- Kerry and BIden said it was undeniable Assad was behind it. I guess she missed the talking point.
