At the White House on April 5, former president Barack Obama introduced “vice president Joe Biden,” claiming “that was a joke!” Joe Biden wasn’t laughing. The Delaware Democrat is clearly incapable of exercising national office, and after the Afghanistan debacle openly said he was “instructed” to call on certain reporters.
“He is not in charge,” observed Stephen Miller of The Spectator, and as Tiana Lowe of the Washington Examiner wondered, “who the hell is in charge here?” That became clear on April 5, but it was already apparent long before.
“The country was in better shape now than it had been when I’d started,” claims POTUS 44 in A Promised Land, released two weeks after the 2020 election. This 751-page auto-hagiography is a bloated rehash of the 2015 Believer, by “Obama’s narrator” David Axelrod. The former Barry Soetoro touts his “calling,” leaving little doubt that Biden is the front man in his current third term.
Joe Biden had a “handsome face always cast in a dazzling smile,” A Promised Land explains. On domestic issues Joe was smart and “his experience in foreign policy was broad and deep.” And so on, in vintage Axelrod style.
On Biden’s watch, Putin invades Ukraine. On the domestic scene crime, inflation and gas prices are soaring, and only 17 percent of Americans rank the economy as excellent or good, the lowest since 2014. Even so, two weeks after the Obama White House appearance, Biden let it slip that he is running for re-election in 2024. The way things are now, the Delaware Democrat says in effect, is the way they are going to be moving forward. That too relates to The Promised Land author.
In his April 5 White House appearance, he touted Obamacare, which advanced a strategic objective. Contrary to what the president proclaimed, you couldn’t keep your plan or your doctor. Under Obamacare, you get only the care the government wants you to have. Remember, the author of Dreams from my Father, The Audacity of Hope, and A Promised Land was all about “fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” which was already a top-heavy welfare state.
Obamacare was demolition to clear the ground for “single payer,” the government monopoly system favored by totalitarian states. This was hardly the only fundamental transformation.
On April 21 at Stanford University, the former president proclaimed that “people are dying because of misinformation” about the vaccines he proclaimed “safe” and “effective” because “clinically tested on billions of people worldwide.” No word about adverse reactions or misinformation from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the non-practicing MD who proclaims “I represent science.”
According to 44, online misinformation is about “the competition between truth and falsehood, cooperation and conflict.” Misinformation is the province of those who “continue to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the last election.” As POTUS 44 has it, misinformation flows from “people like Putin and Steve Bannon,” who “understand it’s not necessary for people to believe this information in order to weaken democratic institutions.”
No one in his administration was “surprised that Russia was attempting to meddle in our election.” No word that the Russia hoax was pure misinformation, endlessly recycled by establishment and social media. “Regulation has to be part of the answer,” says the former president, whose 7,054-word, hour-long speech mentions “regulation” six times.
For all but the willfully blind, the former president wants to rig the internet to censor and cancel Biden’s political opponents. During 44’s first term, he transformed the nation into a place where security agencies neglect foreign adversaries and target his domestic opposition. Under 44, the upper reaches of the FBI and DOJ, along with key players in the CIA and intelligence community, deployed against candidate and President Trump.
For the FBI, those less than worshipful of the Biden Junta are domestic terrorists, violent extremists, and so on. The Department of Homeland Security neglects terrorism and targets misinformation, such as “false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19.”
Meanwhile, in his Stanford speech, POTUS 44 claimed he “spent years being a target of disinformation” when he actually embodies it. His 1995 Dreams from My Father, for example, came billed as an autobiography. In Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, David Garrow revealed that Dreams from My Father was not an autobiography or memoir.
“Without any question,” wrote Garrow, Dreams was a novel and the author a “composite character.” His beloved “Frank,” portrayed as a happy-drunk poet, is Frank Marshall Davis, the African American Communist who spent most of his life serving an all-white Soviet dictatorship.
The composite character now seeks to rig the internet to cancel political opponents and gain a fourth term through Joe Biden.
In 2013, the composite character touted Kamala Harris as the “best looking attorney general.” In 2022 vice president Harris is not looking good as a replacement for the addled Biden, who recently claimed that he served as a liaison between Israel and Egypt during the Six Day War in 1967, when he was still in law school.
As Trump says, we’ll have to see what happens. In the meantime, the struggle of truth against misinformation, prosperity versus poverty, and freedom against tyranny, is all about memory against forgetting.
