White House Wiggery:
Cleopatra Comeback and ‘The Second Coming’

2013 is ‘The Year of Cleopatra’ and ‘The Second Coming’. Michelle Obama’s new wig is a throwback to the the Cleopatra look that is supposed to be registering raves.
“Conservatives have long joked that the national press corps see Barack Obama as the second coming of Jesus Christ. Today, Newsweek—at least what’s left of it, an online product for tablets and e-readers—made it official.” (Newsbusters, Jan. 18, 2013).
Like the last sting of the scorpion before death, Newsweek gave its parting shot trying to immortalize Obama as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
Portraying Obama as the Good Lord above isn’t anything new for Evan Thomas, who penned Newsweek’s Second Coming story. “Back in June of 2009, Thomas proclaimed on MSNBC: “In a way, Obama’s standing above the country, above—above the world. He’s sort of God. He’s going to bring all different sides together.”
About the class warfare routine followed by Thomas’ false God ever since, not a word.
For Americans watching their country being poured down the drain, the next three days are guaranteed to be depressing. That’s why so many will be tuning out even from FoxNews and giving Inauguration 2013, otherwise known as ‘The Big Gloat’, a pass.
FoxNews has a contest currently running asking viewers “Do you like Obama’s bangs?” “Do you like the first lady’s hair better with the bangs or without?”
Contest participants may not realize that Obama’s new hairdo is a wig.
With all hostages reported dead having been slaughtered in the Sahara, and with ‘God Obama’ seeking “fuller understanding” of what happened in Algeria’s siege; with Hillary still dodging testifying on Benghazi; with the grief for the loss of children’s lives in Newtown, Ct. still a searing pain, and with he regime’s outright assault on the 2nd amendment, it’s four straight days of party time at the White House.
All fairytale balls have their own storyline and for the Inauguration Ball, where Lady Gaga is set to perform, Conservatives are Cinderella’s, relegated to cleaning cinders of a badly broken society they have been trying desperately to put back together.
The original fairytale Cinderella got to the ball in a pollution-free, horse-drawn coach made out of a pumpkin slated to turn back into a fruit at the stroke of midnight. Cinderella of childhood fame got to dance with the prince and after the ball went on to live happily ever after. The modern-day Cleopatra under a wig gets to dance with a false god.
Nothing—not even the Bible, (only props in Inauguration 2013)—is taken seriously. It’s Eat, Drink and Be Merry, without the “Tomorrow you may die” part.
The only ones lined up in the “Tomorrow you may die” category in the Cleopatra/Second Coming culture are the old folk to be denied reprieve under Obamacare when it gets here.
The last time the second inauguration of an American president from Illinois was real, was marked by the sincere words spoken by President Abraham Lincoln, which still inspire all those who cherish the truth, 148 years later.
Thanks to my Michigan friend John Peterson who sent these words: “Every journalist worth his daily salt, often comes across another’s story that makes him think “God, I wish I had written that.” But those occasions amount to jealousy over mere foolscap, compared to this:
Second Inaugural Address of Abraham Lincoln
SATURDAY, MARCH 4, 1865
“At this second appearing to take the oath of the Presidential office there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first. Then a statement somewhat in detail of a course to be pursued seemed fitting and proper. Now, at the expiration of four years, during which public declarations have been constantly called forth on every point and phase of the great contest which still absorbs the attention and engrosses the energies of the nation, little that is new could be presented. The progress of our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself, and it is, I trust, reasonably satisfactory and encouraging to all. With high hope for the future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured.
“On the occasion corresponding to this four years ago all thoughts were anxiously directed to an impending civil war. All dreaded it, all sought to avert it. While the inaugural address was being delivered from this place, devoted altogether to saving the Union without war, insurgent agents were in the city seeking to destroy it without war—seeking to dissolve the Union and divide effects by negotiation. Both parties deprecated war, but one of them would make war rather than let the nation survive, and the other would accept war rather than let it perish, and the war came.
“One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war. To strengthen, perpetuate, and extend this interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the Union even by war, while the Government claimed no right to do more than to restrict the territorial enlargement of it. Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with or even before the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully. The Almighty has His own purposes. “Woe unto the world because of offenses; for it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh.” If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”
Meanwhile, ‘The Big Gloat’ will be only a distant memory four days from now. Keep the faith.Judi McLeod -- Bio and Archives | Click to view Comments
