In a performance that would assuredly not win him an Oscar, Obama pretended to wipe away tears today during a news conference following the school massacre in Connecticut.
His staged homage to the young victims rings especially hollow considering the fact the Obama administration shipped weapons to murderous drug cartels in Mexico under the Justice Department’s Fast & Furious operation and he has authorized the CIA to uses its killer drones to slaughter countless innocents in Pakistan.
President Obama doesn’t like to
talk about how he uses drones to kill suspected militants — including American citizens. Explanations about who gets picked for remote-control death and who does the picking are left to underlings and aides. Just a few days ago, for example, Obama blew off a local Cincinnatitelevision reporter who asked the president about his “kill list.”
Ronald Reagan said in 1964 that “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.” Barack Hussein Obama is a perfect example. His upbringing was far from normal. He was a “red diaper baby” abandoned by his father at birth, then abandoned by his mother to her parents at age ten. His early schooling was at an Islamic madrassa in Indonesia with his mother and step father.
As he grew up, he had a succession of communist mentors who schooled him on leftist ideals and class warfare. Much of what we know is found in his two fictionalized auto-biographies, with few facts actually confirmed by investigative journalists.
He bragged about his lack of study habits and slacker adolescence, but neglects to tell how he was accepted into an exclusive college prep school, a premier private college, and finally an Ivy League university. No one has bothered to check what role his record played vs. affirmative action preferences vs. foreign scholarships vs. deep pocket political benefactors. The President has closed all records of this period from any inspection. Strangely enough the mainstream media has no curiosity about these formative years of Barack Obama’s life, such as birth records, school records, college transcripts, publications, and associations.

Glenn Greenwald points out that U.S. government officials are twisting reality again, but this time in a very bizarre and blatant manner, in his latest article, “Top official: drone critics are Al Qaeda enablers.” Greenwald writes:
“The New York Times‘ Scott Shane reported this morning on the Bureau of Investigative Journalism study I wrote about yesterday, detailing that the U.S. drone program, as the NYTput it, “repeatedly targeted rescuers who responded to the scene of a strike, as well as mourners at subsequent funerals.” Shane’s article contains this paragraph:
