Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Glass

This revelation was published today on Politico:

Obama's safety net: the TelePrompter

President Barack Obama doesn’t go anywhere without his TelePrompter.

The textbook-sized panes of glass holding the president’s prepared remarks follow him wherever he speaks.

Resting on top of a tall, narrow pole, they flank his podium during speeches in the White House’s stately parlors. They stood next to him on the floor of a manufacturing plant in Indiana as he pitched his economic stimulus plan. They traveled to the Department of Transportation this week and were in the Capitol Rotunda last month when he paid tribute to Abraham Lincoln in six-minute prepared remarks.

Obama’s reliance on the teleprompter is unusual — not only because he is famous for his oratory, but because no other president has used one so consistently and at so many events, large and small.

And it struck me once again, that what we are witnessing in reality, is no different than the hucksterism portrayed in the classic movie the Wizard of Oz. Having fulfilled all the requirements of the Great Oz to achieve his desired goal of obtaining the witches broom, the beleaguered cast of characters comes to realize (compliments of an attentive dog,) that the great and powerful wizard isn't really so great and powerful after all.

As a matter of fact, once you take away his smoke and mirrors and pull back the curtain to reveal the levers and the switches, there is nothing there but a simple minded little man running a rather large hoax upon and entire kingdom. But it is never revealed tot he viewer, just who built and maintained the elaborate machine that created the image of a wizard.

Such is the case in my belief also, as it concerns the messianic one, also known as president Barack Obama, (the man who describes himself as being good at the job.) Many pundits and other have noted for months that the master of oratory seems lost without his beloved teleprompters and as evidenced by ongoing examples and the revelations of the article cited above, there is more than just a little bit of truth to the consensus of opinion on this matter IMO.

Which leads to the next logical progression of thinking as it concerns the Obamamessiah.....whose words are being scrolled across those panes of glass for the messianic mouth piece to recite to the dumb masses? Certainly, considering all else that he has become involved in since becoming president, surely no one can believe that he is writing his own material. Or even contributing to it substantively for that matter.

So as they might say in the UK, "who is the shadow governance and who is the shadow cabinet" that is really speaking their minds to the voice of power that has been elected to front their hidden agenda?

I for one believe that as each day and week and month passes, the more and more the emperor will be revealed for the shoddy dresser that he really is. He may have transformed and transfigured his appearance for the willing eyes of the duped dumb masses, but there remain those like myself, who see his paupers clothing and his tunic made from drapes and died with the illusion of grandeur and humble beginnings. This is no man of the people my friends and sooner or later, Old Abe's admonishment about fooling the people is going to catch up with him.

Make no mistake, we are observing the quintessential political interloper of an age and our era (also known as our error). And quite possibly the one spoken of and eluded to in many ancient writings that foretold of a day when man's eyes would be clouded. The apostle Paul called him the "son of perdition" or the "man of lawlessness" depending upon the interpretation or definition being rendered.

Theologian William Barclay's comments in the Daily Study Bible,are that the "Antichrist is not so much a person as a principle, the principle which is actively opposed to God and which may well be thought of as incarnating itself in those in every generation who have seemed to be blatant opponents of God."

I don't necessarily believe that Obama is the Antichrist incarnate, but I do believe that he may very well be the grandest evil of political philosophy and action.

I will leave the rest for you to decide. Just keep an eye on what comes out of Washington in the next ninety days and watch how the markets react over the course of the next month. As I believe that the reality of an Obama caused and created depression is literally on our door step.
