ANATOMY OF A DOWNFALL
COVERING THE COVER-UP, with CORRUPTION = CRIMINALITY
“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time,
but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.” ~ Abraham Lincoln,
For some reason, President Barack Obama has been compared to President Lincoln over and over…and over. You’ve seen reporters compare President Obama to Lincoln too many times. NBC News correspondent Kevin Tibbles even said it was not a coincidence that the release of the Steven Spielberg movie Lincoln came the same week Barack Obama was re-elected (although Breitbart’s Warner Todd Huston responded with,
“But to compare Lincoln’s turbulent times to Obama’s is the most idiotic, partisan blather that can be imagined.”)
(Col Sellin) ~ How to take down the Obama Administration and restore the Constitution by Lawrence Sellin
In military operations, the enemy’s “center of gravity” is defined in JP 1-02 as “the source of power that provides moral or physical strength, freedom of action, or will to act.” It can also be a source of weakness and provide a point of attack.
Obama is the center of gravity for a corrupt political system. His center of gravity is transparency or, in this case, the lack thereof.
Paraphrasing “Counterinsurgency” (FM 3-24), the ability to generate and sustain popular support, or at least acquiescence and tolerance, has been the sine qua non of Obama’s political survival. Support or tolerance is often generated using intimidation and coercion of the populace. In these cases, even if people do not favor Obama, they are forced to tolerate him or provide support.
Government of the People, by the People, for the People? –… “In a masterpiece of political propaganda, the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln penned one of the most famous slogans in American history: “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Lincoln was referring to the U.S. government, but U.S. government has never”
The People are not running the ship of State.
In a masterpiece of political propaganda, the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln penned one of the most famous slogans in American history: “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Lincoln was referring to the U.S. government, but U.S. government has never fit such a description. A government of that description with its seat in Washington could not have perished from the earth in 1863 because no such government existed in the first place. What existed was a State, one that Lincoln wanted to be large, permanent and growing.
Articles: Lincoln Immortal?….. “Most students do not know that a score of years is twenty and, therefore, that Lincoln in 1863 references the year 1776 and the Declaration of Independence. And instead…”
…..The typical college student does not know Lincoln. The phrase “Four score and seven years ago” from the Gettysburg Address is that one fine morsel that begets familiarity, but without meaning or significance.
Most students do not know that a score of years is twenty and, therefore, that Lincoln in 1863 references the year 1776 and the Declaration of Independence.
And instead of simply saying, for instance, “Eighty-seven years ago,” Lincoln deliberately chooses to use the Biblical language of Psalm 90, demonstrating that the time since the founding exceeds the allotted lifetime of man. As time separated those of Lincoln’s generation from the founders, so too has time separated our own generation from Lincoln. But now the gulf is much greater.
In an essay entitled “Lincoln, the Declaration, and Secular Puritanism: A Rhetoric for Continuing Revolution,” the late literary scholar Mel Bradford explained the ideological genesis of American military and foreign policy that has prevailed since 1863.

Lincoln’s “erroneous understanding of the Declaration of Independence” as espoused in The Gettysburg Address, wrote Bradford, established “a rhetoric for continuing revolution” and “set us forever to ‘trampling out the grapes of wrath.’”
What Bradford meant by this is the way in which Lincoln quoted the “all men are created equal” line from the Declaration and reinterpreted it to mean that it was somehow the duty of Americans to stamp out all sin in the world, wherever it may be found, so that ALL MEN everywhere could share in equal freedom.

He swore his oath of office on Abraham Lincoln’s Bible. He has asked to give the State of the Union address on Lincoln’s birthday. He rode to Washington in 2009 on a train route similar to Lincoln’s in 1861. He has compared his critics to Lincoln’s critics. He confides to admirers that he likes to read the handwritten Gettysburg Address that hangs in the Lincoln Bedroom.
Barack Obama is inviting the world to compare him not just to good presidents but to the greatest in American history.
