My Own “Enemies List”

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
Not necessarily. Remember what happened
when FDR allied himself with Josef Stalin to defeat Nazi Germany. At war’s end,
Stalin gobbled up half of Europe with FDR’s leave. The U.S. was saddled with a
costly “cold war” with our former “friend” Soviet Russia for nearly half a
century. See Diana West’s path-breaking book, American
Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character
, for details, or
here,
about how “mainstream” historians deny the truth of West’s thesis. The USSR was
never a friend of America.
The proverb
suggests that two opposing parties can or should work together against a common
enemy. Although it is often described as an Arabic proverb, there is no
evidence of such an origin.
But now I can say that the friends of my
enemies are without question or a shade of doubt my enemies, as well.
To begin with, every one of them is a liar.
Daniel Greenfield, in his December 12th
FrontPage column, “Lying
in Post-Truth America
,” prefaced his comments with a reprise of Bill
Clinton’s lies about Monica Lewinsky, then remarked:
Clinton’s antics
set the stage for a current administration which can never be caught in a lie
because it’s lying all the time. Obama and his people don’t just lie, they lie
about the lies and then they lie about those lies. Bringing them in to testify
just clogs the filters with an extra layer of lies.
Invite [Jonathan] Gruber
to testify about the time that he admitted that the administration had been
lying and the only thing that will happen is more lies being told by a man who
is there only because he lied….
Journalists
repeatedly dismissed ObamaCare scandals by arguing that no one could have taken
Obama’s claims at face value anyway. When Obama promised Americans that they
could keep their doctors, the housewife in Topeka, the freelance programmer in
San Francisco and the geologist in Tulsa were supposed to be as knowing as the
Washington press corps and realize that he didn’t mean it….
Obama doesn’t
simply lie. He exists in a truth-free zone. He doesn’t stumble with any
construction as clumsy as Kerry’s “I actually did vote for the $87 billion,
before I voted against it.” He does not start with truthful facts. His starting
point is in an imaginary territory. It ends in an imaginary territory. If the
two imaginary territories are different, it scarcely matters because neither
place was ever real….
Lying is the faking of reality, of
committing fraud by concocting an illusion for others. To the liar, something
has GOT to be true, for otherwise the liar hasn’t a claim to anyone else’s
attention and without the lie the liar is an empty-handed boob and nobody. Or
because the truth will condemn the liar to jail or social ostracism. To the
liar, reality must conform to his lies. If it doesn’t, then he will blame it on
the Möbius Strip that the liar wishes you also to believe is the nature of
existence, that everything is in a Heraclian flux.  That way, neither he nor you can claim any
authority about what is a truth or a lie.  
Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, and Jonathan
Gruber
, among others, wanted Obamacare foisted on the country, so they all
participated in a lie. Americans are suckers, claimed Gruber, and should never
be given an even break. Lies can be told to them because it’s for their own
good. But the truth behind the nature of Obamacare wasn’t a lie. He was caught
out by his own hubris.
Gruber made the mistake of boasting about
it at an obscure conference he thought no one else would ever care to learn
about, and went into detail about the machinations of his and his allies’ minds
and explained the rationale behind their collective lies. Even in his Congressional testimony
his apology for calling the  American
voter “stupid” is a lie; his crime makes Richard Nixon, perceived as a lying
used car salesman, seem like an artless novice. Bill Clinton beat him hands down. Concerning Gruber, the
sound we heard in Congress was his imitation of Porky
Pig
.
Barack Obama, however, is a congenital liar
about everything. He probably even boasts to others that he could give the golf
pro Jack Nicklaus a run for his money, and believes
it.
If he exists in what Greenfield called a “truth-free
zone, or in an “alternative universe” in which a paper cornucopia of wealth
flows from solar panels and Muslim outreach and healthy school lunches and the
milk and honey are actually vinegar and rationed Trail Mix, then it is thanks
to generations of philosophers, going back to David Hume,  Immanuel Kant and Georg Hegel (or even further
back to Plato) who preached that “reality” is not accessible to man. It exists
in some other-worldly realm impervious to man’s lying, stunted senses, so, who
knows what the truth is?
The truth is what I say it is, asserts the
liar, and who is anyone to question my special powers of kenning it. Truth can
be “A” and “non-A” at the same time or any combination of “X” and “Z” and “Y”
or whatever else I say it is. Let’s pass Obamacare, turn it into an ironclad
law, except when the President rewrites it, and then we can see what’s in it.
However, who are my enemies, who pose as my
friends yet side with my other enemies?
First
and foremost
:
President Barack H. Obama, our National Community Organizing Expert, enemy of
the Constitution, and Liar-in-Chief.
Second: everyone who,
with starry-eyed hankerings for the unearned and the redistribution of what
they never built, voted for Obama first, and then, after seeing the destruction
he wrought on the country, and even in their own lives in the way of Obamacare,
cost of living increases, unemployment, scandals, inflation, the increase in
the national debt, blatant cronyism, corruption, and foreign policy disasters
that will redound repeatedly on America in the future like the Four Horsemen of
the Apocalypse, voted for him again in 2012.
Third: his Progressive,  Socialist, and soft-pedaling Communist allies
in Congress, in both houses. This includes Nancy Pelosi, Tim Kaine and Mark
Warner (U.S. Senators for Virginia, my current domicile), Harry Reid, John
Boehner, and the whole Rouges’ Gallery of politicians, most of them Democrats
or pretend Republicans.
Fourth: the Mainstream
Media, Obama’s private NGO cum news
dispenser, the lap dog of the White House’s policy of dissimulation and
disinformation, and unpaid propaganda bureau. This includes prominent
columnists, pundits, apologists for America, and writers and blog sites that project
more empathy
for the enemy and totalitarians than they do f or the victims of statist and
Mideast (read Islamic) savagery.
Fifth: Islam, in the
person of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, and all of its
Hamas-Terrorist affiliations, such as ISNA, ICNA, MSA, and other alphabetic
linkages beyond, such as ISIS, the PA, Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Hezbollah, and
any other Islamic terrorist organizations.
Sixth: all the other Islamic States, such as Saudi Arabia,
Iran, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and all the small
fry Islamic States. I may as well throw in Turkey. The blitzkrieg of ISIS (the
Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is comparable to Mohammad’s campaign on the
Arabian Peninsula in the 7th century to bring the whole region under his and
Islam’s thumb.
Seventh: Career
race-baiters and “What? Me Worry?” ignoramuses who have a vested interest in
racial strife and conflict, and work diligently perpetuate them on the
slightest pretext,  regardless of
reality, such as Al
Sharpton
and Jessie Jackson.
 In his own special category of
pulpit-pounding racism, I also name Nation of Islam head Louis Farrakhan.
Eighth: Conservatives who
can’t decide on which side their principles (if any) and convictions (if any) should
reside: Freedom, or a status quo as defined by their alleged enemies, Democrats.
Ninth: Billionaires
who donated to Obama’s re-election,
most of whom donated to his first election.
Tenth: Less-than-billionaires
who donated to Obama’s re-election,
many of whom donated to his first election.
Eleventh:  Any and all Federal and state regulatory
agencies established to regulate trade, human activities, and social
relationships, such as the Internal Revenue Service, the Environmental
Protection Agency, Health and Human Services, the Drug Enforcement Administration,
among myriad others.
There are many others that merit my eternal
hostility, but I think these eleven ought to suffice for the moment. Then there
are the “lone wolf” enemies, such as American book and newspaper publishers,
who refused to reproduce the Mohammad
cartoons
of 2005 and even in a Yale University
Press
book about The
Cartoons That Shook the World
lest they “offend” the gentle
sensibilities of Muslims and anger them to the point that they would go on
murderous rampages and call for the end of freedom of speech.  
And let us not forget the major and
“inadvertent” faux pas of Scholastic,
Inc.
, which recently published a children’s book that omitted Israel from a
map of the Mideast. Or, given the rising tide of anti-Semitism, was the
omission instead an instance of l
a négligence
consciente
?
Perhaps Wizard Harry Potter,
whose exploits are published by Scholastic, whisked by on his broom and with a
flick of his magic wand made Israel disappear from the minds of Scholastic’s
cartographers. I’m trying to imagine the discredited Protocols of the Elders of
Zion in the curriculum of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
That curriculum, however, seems to be
shared by most American schools and universities.
All in all, one’s “friends” are not
necessarily one’s “friends.” They could be one’s worst enemies.
Moral: Choose your friends wisely. And make
sure your enemy knows you are not his friend.

    An alternative title to this column could have been "Here Lies Barack Obama." But that title might have been red-flagged by the NSA or some other federal outfit that monitors blog spots.

    Although you mentioned them with the reference to pundits et al, I would have made number 12 university professors of philosophy and the social sciences who deserve their own number. Maybe even number 1 since their ideas created the rest of the list.

    Michael Neibel: I already ascribe my "enemies'" philosophies to the ultimate villains: "…then it is thanks to generations of philosophers, going back to David Hume, Immanuel Kant and Georg Hegel (or even further back to Plato) who preached that “reality” is not accessible to man. It exists in some other-worldly realm impervious to man’s lying, stunted senses, so, who knows what the truth is?" If readers can't or won't make the connection, as I remarked in an earlier column, then I can't help them.

  5. An eye opener

    Radical Farrakhan-nists and Fee-Palestine bigots:
    Do Brown Black Lives matter…if they're Israelis?

    BLACK, BROWN, WHITE, YELLOW ISRAELIS

    Since color has become a language somehow, and anti Israel bigots distort, then let's remind, most Israelis are "brown," in terms of stats. You have also many Ethiopian Jews.

    No wonder the propagandists will never show democratic multiracial Israel in day to day lives.

    Or elaborate on anti-black racism in the Goliath Arab world. Though all non Arabs have been through racism in that world.

    SECURITY VS RACISTS

    But of course Israeli security concerns are just that. Unrelated to any "color" or "race." Actually, speaking of racism, yes, Arab Muslim attackers target only Jews. Talk about real racism.

    BACKGROUND ON HIJACKING TERMINOLOGY

    True, hijacking of term 'it's racism," is as old as Palestine propaganda emerged by holocaust denier Issa Nakhleh who began in June-17-1949 the "like the Nazis and worse than nazis" line (and by Nov-14-1972 said all 6,000,000 were alive and Hitler "didn't" kill, and represented 'Muslim Congress' at Holocaust deniers convention in 1981), then picked up in 1960 by Nazi Tacuara saluter Ahmad Shukairy who by Oct-17-1961 added that garbage-touch apartheid slur too and questioned Catholic Uruguayan rep. Enrique Fabregat's loyalty, stating because he's (supposedly) a Jew. And both, of course were Hitler's ally ex-mufti Islamic leader al-Husseini avid fans. With Shukairy his aide.

    Speaking of ex Mufti's admirers… Sufi Abdul Hamid, infamous 'Black Hitler' in NY who called to drive out Italians and Jews in the 1929-30, was also his admirer.

    RE FARAKHANNISTS & FAKE "PRO-"

    One might begin to argue there is such a thing as "pro Palestine", (only) when Farrakhan linked Ilhan Omar / Linda Sarsour / Rashida Tlaib will have a routine of decrying Arab Muslim suffering when it's not in context of Israel (who has been facing existential threat ever since) but suffering when by Arab Muslim entities. One would then hear about a real en-masse massacre. Such as hundreds of thousands in Syria, current example. And if they begin to do anything along the line, then no lip service please. But with that same "passion" as in fake "sympathy" played at the 'other' case.

    The absentee reason is clear. Self explanatory. Because pro Palestine is a cover for anti Israel and often anti ALL Jews.

    A note re L Farrakhan, that guy with his "blue eyes are the devil," when he uttered his "termites" venom, his genocidal hint was clear under the veil. For more about Dehumanization in radical Islamic Arab or even mainstream racist "Palestinian" education and sermons, search for "apes and pigs, Palestinians". Or see PalWatch and MEMRI.
