This week, I wrote about how the movie Lincoln was being used by the democrats as a “propaganda” film, to enforce the idea of further empowering the office of the Presidency, and I had forgotten about Bill Clinton introducing the movie at the Golden Globes last January. (more proof that this has been the plan all along.) Bill Clinton is helping the “Obama needs to be ‘Lincoln” fantasy” once more…in May:
Former President Bill Clinton is the 2013 recipient of the Lincoln Leadership Prize — the first time a former U.S. president has been awarded the prize, The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation announced Tuesday. The leadership award honors “outstanding individuals for a lifetime of service in the spirit of President Abraham Lincoln,” and those who “manifest great strength of character, individual conscience, and an unwavering commitment to the defining principles of democracy,” the foundation said in a written news release.
Last week campaign disclosure reports revealed that Hillary Clinton had finally retired the debt from her 2008 presidential campaign—with a little help from the guy who beat her, Barack Obama. Clinton’s debt once totaled more than $20 million, although it had dwindled to about $250,000 by last year. That’s when a team of top Obama donors decided to surprise Clinton, and thank her for her loyal service, by raising enough money to pay off her bills.
Evidently, the love fest between Obama and Hillary grows…it wasn’t easy to get that money….Nobody Knows..just why Obama and the Clinton’s are so close? Just what is in this for the Clinton’s? Obama’s Vice Presidency? Mmmmmmm?
In the meantime, they continue their song and dance! (See my little Jibjab!)
(Written before the Oscars, but I’ve updated…in places)
Nobody will argue, that Lincoln will probably walk away with the most Oscars tonight, for the simple reason that Spielberg is a genius, and nobody can tell a story and bring it to life as well as he can.
It should win easily. But then again…Hillary and Kerry are rooting for Argo. Isn’t that a first in American history? Politicians publically announcing their favorite to win an Oscar?
Politics are in almost all the movies in contention for the Oscar tonight, and if ARGO wins over Lincoln, one might assume that Hillary Clinton and John Kerry had something to do with it. I haven’t seen it, but I’m sure it glorifies the State Department, and is more than likely, a propaganda film, to make everyone forget the horror Hillary’s State Department made in Benghazi
(It’s also not historically true. It was the Canadians who got the people out, says Jimmy Carter, who was President at the time.)
More times that I can count, Obama’s PR machine has been put him on the fronts of magazines portraying him as Lincoln, or FDR— the two Presidents in past history who, more than any others, ignored the Constitution and gave themselves overwhelming powers. Powers not intended for them to have. They simply took it. FDR, with his NEW DEAL, had become such a dictator, Congress passed the 22nd amendment to keep that from ever happening again.
Last week in the Washington Post, Tom Fox wrote an editorial called, “Why Presidents Need to be Exploiters” to support the idea that in crisis, President should always take advantage and extent their powers.
The public almost never moves in the president’s direction if there is division in the country. It is difficult to reach most citizens, overcome their predispositions and combat a vocal opposition. When FDR found Congress extraordinarily responsive to the crisis, (depressions and war) he effectively exploited this opportunity and rapidly passed the original New Deal. He did not try to create an opportunity; instead, he brilliantly exploited one. This is presidential effectiveness. (Can I gag here?)
In other words, whenever a man sees a chance to take more power…go for it.
And since this Nobody thinks nothing is a coincidence when it comes to politics, I think both Lincoln and Argo were made to promote the Obama administration in Washington. Argo, the State Department, and Lincoln—Obama. ALL of Congress got special viewings.
The movie Lincoln plays heavily in Obama’s favor, and this is why. The message coming out of that movie was that ONE President, bribed, broke laws, ignored the Constitution, because his Congress was too stupid and prejudiced. He did it to abolish slavery…, therefore, we should forgive him. Presidents should always be allowed to break the law when necessary for the greater good.
FDR gets the same pass. We were in a war, he expanded the government into the overgrown elephant we have today. Johnson added the Great Society. You could say the same about George W. Bush, who created the government program we will all come to fear someday, called, Homeland Security, all by himself. With the stroke of a pen.
Historically, Presidents have been expanding their powers whenever they could “exploit” the moment.
How many times have we heard Obama say that if Congress doesn’t get something he wants done..he will do it himself? Too many for my taste.
And he does it— Triples our debt, and makes Czars, and starts wars. His mission is to dismantle the country, the America he does not like, and reshape it in his own Marxist Utopian, and some say European, image.
For instance: He thought up the sequester, which of course cuts the military in two, and then, when it comes times to vote, he ups the ante and says he wants MORE taxes, so that the Republicans will NOT vote for it, and he gets exactly what he wants.
The office of the Presidency has grown too much power, and because impeachment is so rare, just one President can destroy the country…and we are watching that happen.
Lincoln broke the law, but it was for a good cause. The country is once again divided. Obama breaks the law, but not for some good cause, —NOT to unit and keep us together, but to further push the country into communism.
And that’s the dangerous message Lincoln and Spielberg bring: Give him the power. But Obama is NO Lincoln. The very fact that he is being allowed to kill anyone with his drones, makes him a dictator.
Did Steven Spielberg make Lincoln to hint that Obama is there to guide a divided nation into what’s good for them? Or did he just want to point out that all politics are corrupt?
UPDATE: Okay, I was right. Liam Nelsion just introduced Lincoln as a President who has to rule over a gridlocked Congress.(Hint…hint, our congress is gridlocked over sequestration)
Katzenberg , one of the biggest producers in Hollywood, said they make movies to influence the world.
Hollywood works for Obama now. And if you don’t believe that, then if you watched it to the end you saw, for the first time in History,
THE WHITE HOUSE, VIA MICHELLE OBAMA, ANNOUNCING BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR.
(Along with the usual politically correct we must all behave message)
Argo won Movie of the Years…Ben Affleck, the laughing stock of Hollywood, is now the King of the world. Hillary and Kerry will be thrilled….they threw the down and out kid, a bone….
Put that in your Oscar and smoke it
I must admit. I didn’t want to see Spielberg’s version of Lincoln. As you know, I am tired of rehashing the Civil War through the narrow lens of the horror of slavery….which WAS horrible, but so often nowadays the history is being repeated relentlessly to evoke guilt and submission from the ancestors of those people who used slaves as cheap labor, and how a generation of white people, who did NONE of those crimes, are being brainwashed to believe that they are still responsible for the horrors of their ancestors.
Politicians have used that guilt market simply to get votes and power. Not that prejudice doesn’t exist, it does…but now it’s double.
I was talking to my friend Mona the other day, and we were both complaining. She was telling me about how she was left standing—at a meat counter. There were two heavy set black older women behind the counter, and one skinny young white women. When she spoke to the black woman to place an order, they looked down, and ignored her. I find this too happening to me. They are SUPPOSE to be friendly to you , the customer, take your order— but too many black people do not even look at your, OR talk to you..and you know they are thinking “Why are you here..go away. I don’t like white people. I don’t have to serve you. “
The white young girls came up to Mona…and said, “Have you been helped?”
“I thought I was…but we’re still waiting.”
A black person reading this might be thinking: Well, all white people hate black people so you deserve to be ignored
Did Obama’s reelection make any difference in the prejudices of both races? NOPE.
But back to the movie…it’s mostly about the fact that it was the Republican Party that worked so very hard to free the slaves, against the Democrats. That point was repeated throughout. Daniel Day Lewis almost becomes Lincoln. Sally Fields, is perfect as his wife, and Tommy Lee Jones, as you’ve heard, portrays a fireball of a Congressmen.
It also shows the corruption that politicians use to get their way. Lincoln had to bribe members of Congress with positions and money, to get enough votes to pass the 13th amendment. And while the movie makes no judgment on the rights of Presidents to bribe with money and power, in Lincoln’s case you tend to forgive the man because his case was so righteous.
My main thought after the movie, as everyone was talking about how good it was, was the sheer irony. Now, our first black President has worked to put us all back in chains. His cause is not one of liberty, but of taking a “republic ” and making it a dictatorship. He thinks HIS cause of redistributing wealth is the right one.
But, it’s not the cause of liberty, it’s the cause of so many other communists that have enslaved a people before him.
How ironic, that the first black man in history to lead the American nation, a nation who so many thousands had died for to free the black man from bondage, is going to lead the whole nation ..right back into it.
I wonder, what Lincoln would say about that.
If you have to make a choice between Denzel Washington and Lincoln, Nobody Suggests you see Lincoln. Do you really need to see another dark movie about an alcoholic?
Lincoln was worth the money. But better take a dictionary, back then, our congressmen were actually educated.
