Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
If Paul Simon were to write a song about Barack Hussein Obama’s post-presidential years, he could title it “Still Leaking After All These Years.”
On Saturday, America’s Worst Mistake leaked a recording of a very-much scripted phone call to reliable old Russia Collusion buddy Michael Isikoff, who then “reported” on it as if it were a real thing. It wasn’t. Just as with everything else Obama has done throughout his entire political life – and perhaps throughout his entire life, period – this call with what he calls the “Obama alumni association” was basically designed to telegraph talking points to his allies and script a narrative for the compliant corrupt news media to follow.
Throughout the call, Obama can be heard rustling papers, so I guess he didn’t have a teleprompter handy. The dialogue on the call produces exactly the kinds of carefully-crafted “key messages” anyone who has ever worked in the communications field would recognize.
Check out this passage as an example:
“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed — about the Justice Department dropping charges against Michael Flynn,” Obama said.
“And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for somebody who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic, not just institutional norms, but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places,” he added, misstating that Flynn was charged with perjury.
Ok, so, first of all, all of the Obama “alumni” just got walking orders to call their corrupt media contacts and lecture them for “downplaying” the Flynn news, even though all those media toadies had already spent the previous 24 hours doing little but screaming about the decision.
Second, they’re all out there this morning screaming that this is “no precedent” because hey, that’s what Obama said. Of course, that is a damnable lie, as George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley detailed yesterday. Not to mention the fact that Obama His Own Self doesn’t even understand what crime Flynn had been charged with. Clue: It wasn’t perjury.
Then there is the spectacle of a former President who we now clearly know helped implement a plan to fix the 2016 election and to later attempt a coup d’etat on U.S. soil pontificating about the “rule of law.” Breathtaking.
Here’s another passage:
“It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset, of ‘what’s in it for me’ and ‘to heck with everybody else,’ when that mindset is operationalized in our government,” Obama said. “So that’s why, I, by the way, am going to be spending as much time as necessary and campaigning as hard as I can for Joe Biden.”
Now, really, does that sound like someone speaking in their own voice to you? Or does it sound like someone reading messages scripted for him by communications professionals? As a longtime communications specialist myself, I can assure you it is the latter.
But, after hearing that from The One His Own Self, you can expect to hear all of the Obama loyalist talking heads to be using the words “chaotic,” “selfishness,” and even “operationalized” all over CNN and MSNBC this week. And they’ll also be finishing up their segments with “that’s why I’ll be campaigning hard for Joe Biden this fall,” or something similar.
It goes on:
“This election that’s coming up on every level is so important because what we’re going to be battling is not just a particular individual or a political party. What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life. And by the way, we’re seeing that internationally as well. It’s part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty.”
Again, the key words for everyone to parrot here are obvious: “selfish,” “tribal,” “divided, “seeing others as the enemy.”
This is Democrat projection at its finest, folks. After all, Obama and his administration spent 8 of the longest years in American history doing everything the could, using every rhetorical tool they could think of to pit Americans against Americans along tribal and selfish lines. Obama himself constantly engaged in the most heinous kind of divisive rhetoric in which he at various times painted Republicans, law enforcement, the Tea Party, Christians, Jews, Catholics, southerners and anyone who happened to be a white male as an enemy.
The leaking of this call to the very same corrupt journalist who was tabbed by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC to kick off the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory in 2016 was no accident. This was the act of a very frightened and guilty man who is sending out a call to action to those operatives who still remain loyal to him, demanding that they redouble their efforts to protect their old boss and smear the current POTUS who they have spent three years attempting to remove from office.
This is spine-chilling stuff to anyone who still cares about this country and its survival.
That is all.
