My rule with Obama—the worst thing you can imagine him doing, no matter how he may deny it, is most likely just what he’s doing—comes into play again.
When Obama Inc. spied on members of Congress to protect its Iran nuke sellout, it packaged the story to the Wall Street Journal under the headline, “U.S. Spy Net on Israel Snares Congress”. The idea was that Obama Inc. was “legitimately” spying on Israel, that it just happened to intercept the conversations of some members of Congress and American Jews, and that the eavesdropping somehow meant that its victims, Jewish and non-Jewish, rather than its White House perpetrators, should be ashamed.
Obama and his minions had used the NSA to spy on Americans opposed to its policies. Including members of Congress. They did this by conflating their own political agenda with national security.
Since Obama’s spin was that the Iran Deal was good for national security, opponents of it were a “national security” threat.
And its fig leaf for domestic surveillance was that a “foreign leader” was involved.
Now get ready for a flashback.
Susan Rice’s excuse for unmasking the names of top Trump officials in the Obama eavesdropping effort was that they were meeting with the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates. The carefully packaged CNN story, which reeks of the Goebbelsian media manipulations of “Obama whisperer” Ben Rhodes, tries to clumsily tie the whole thing to the Russians. But for once it’s not about Russia. It’s about Islam.
He goes on to make the case, and a damned good one at that. It’ll be dismissed nonetheless, even by some who ought to know better, as delusional “paranoia” akin to what some of these same people are pleased to refer to as the birth-certificate “hoax.”
Daniel closes things out with what he calls a “foul slogan” (“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam”), and he’s right about that too. It pretty much gives Obama’s Islam-promoting game away, to anybody with eyes to see. Although I still maintain that Obama isn’t really a Muslim; he believes in nothing but power and his own innate superiority to pretty much everybody. I simply can’t imagine him being devout about anything at all other than his own ego and his hard-core Leftism; even as powerful and binding a force as Islam was in his early years would necessarily fall behind his own boundless narcissism. That, too, is very much part of who he is.
The ironic thing? Muslims have a word for Obama’s duplicitous approach: apostasy. The very faith to which he chooses to lend his half-heartedly clandestine assistance would put him to death in an instant for it.
