The Biggest Scam of Our Time

The madness that has become our culture is head-throbbing. Common sense is gone, at least among most of the so-called government leaders, opinion-makers and many ordinary citizens. Political correctness has been invented to stifle objective thought, facts and normal discourse. Entitlement has replaced responsibility and motivation.

The world has, in less than half a century, been turned upside down in terms of beliefs. This transformation is akin to stepping into an episode of “The Twilight Zone.” For those not old enough to understand, think in terms of George Costanza’s “Bizzaro World.”

David Solway discusses what he considers the three biggest scams of our time. According to him, these are

  1. The Palestinian Faux Narrative Scam
  2. Global Warming or Climate Change
  3. Barack Hussein Obama
Regarding Obama, Mr. Solway presents an unrestricted, non-politically-correct description of the man (or silhouette, if you prefer). I have emboldened the phrases with which I especially am in agreement with respect to our Fraud-in-Chief:

I have been following the ascent of Barack Obama from early in the Democratic primaries—when he surfed on a wave of clichés, bromides, plagiarisms, gaffes, promises, and outright fabrications to the nomination—up to the present moment when he began to be exposed as arguably the most disingenuous and destructive president in the history of the United States.

Nonetheless, how a largely unvetted nonentity with a winning manner could so effectively beguile even a dumbed-down electorate is nothing short of grotesque.

I am not an American and can scarcely regard myself as a political wonk or legitimate pundit—my interests lie elsewhere—yet even from a distance it seemed obvious to me four years ago that Obama was an arrant fraud, an Alinsky-inspired subversive, a far-Left politicopath of obscure provenance intimate with a host of tainted mentors and friends, and ultimately a greater threat to his nation than Vladimir Putin, Hugo Chavez, Osama bin Laden, or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. One did not need to be Argus-eyed to spot the glaringly inescapable, unless one were either thoroughly indoctrinated or suicidally delusional.

The latest revelation about Obama’s lack of candor—to put it mildly—has reconfirmed the intuition that he was a scoundrel from
