Good News For Modern Democrats

 

One of the more nauseating features of the reelection of the South Side Messiah, is that we will have four more years  of the cult of personality that is promoted by some of Obama’s more deranged acolytes.  A current example is The Gospel According to Apostle Barack by Barbara A. Thompson.

The book description of this tome:

Yes, Barack had worked tirelessly on behalf of the American people, especially those who elected him in 2008. His followers needed to re-elect him to a second term, so that he could continue to accomplish the promises he made, thus, realizing his vision of America as a more perfect political union or “heaven here on earth” Then, as I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor. Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of “heaven here on earth” for his followers. The answers were repeated – over and over – in speeches Barack had made from his presidential announcement to his inaugural address. Those speeches or his teachings contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a “heaven here on earth” For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized.

Hmmm, I wonder what parables would be in the Gospel of Barack?  The Good Abortionist?  The Prodigal Differently Gendered Male Product of Conception?  The Civil Union at Cana?  The Ten Foolish Sluts?  The Unionized Laborers in the Vinyard?  The Unjust Republican Judge?

Barack would perform miracles in the Gospel:  walking on a sea of debt;  transforming water into taxes;  raising the dead because they hadn’t paid their death taxes;  transforming bread and wine into (skip that one, Apostle Biden snarfed them down).

The teachings of the Apostle Barack of course would take pride of place:

1.  Render unto Caesar Obama everything.

2.  Love Barack and love thy fellow Leftist.

3.  Blessed are the bribe givers for they shall receive their reward.

4.  Suffer the little children.

5.  The wages of sin are fun.

6.  He who is not with us is a Republican.

7.  I am who I am and that is all that I am.

8.  The Son of  Hawaii has come to be served by the many.

9.  For the Son of Hawaii will come like a Chicago alderman upon a bribe in the night.

10. Go forth and make ye Democrats of all the nation, baptizing them in the name of Class Hatred, Welfare and Abortion.

Go here to have a look at the book on Amazon.  The book reviews are dominated by non-believers since they are all one stars except this four star review by someone who has seen the Truth:

I had always felt my life was worthless and had no purpose until I lucked upon this book. Sure, I had built my own business, employed thousands, tithed 20% to my (other) church. But it all felt so empty. As I sat in my chair one night, browsing Amazon, with a gun in my mouth I accidentally clicked a link to this book and it felt as if the hand of Barack had sent a bolt of lightning through my body. I now know what I must do. Last week I voted for revenge against the evil capitalists, shut down my business and donated all of the proceeds to Solyndra. Can’t wait to see what my future holds!

  • This is exactly how at some future time the final anti-Christ will receive the accolades and adulation of millions. People wAant to be deluded today just as people in Germany in the early 20th century wanted to be delided. I did NOT say Obama is THE anti-Christ. But John’s first epistle does say that there will be many little anti-Christs in the Last Days. Whether these are the “Last Days” or not remain to be seen.

  • The author of this book was on Michael Medved’s show and was totally owned by one of Medved’s best callers, Tom from Glendora, who is a Catholic. He had 3 questions expressing doubt that Obama could legitimately be called an apostle. Her response in the form of a rant was angry, indignant and didn’t answer any of the questions, but amounted in short to “We won”, so way to speak power to truth.

    His third question was about the HHS Mandate violating religious freedom and it seemed to get under her skin the most. Her response was legalistic in nature pointing out that all this is legal at this point, laws on the books, ostensibly forgetting that slavery used to be legal in our country. Again: a power cult speakin’ power to truth.

  • I believe the author of the book is quite serious Art. Obviously I am not.

  • What a misnamed site. I am an American catholic and you do not speak for me. Your columns are hateful and biased. Jesus is very disappointed I am sure. How dare you refer to Vatican II as if you derive some heritage from it. Your closed minded and hateful commentary is in direct violation of the spirit of Vatican II. You should be ashamed.
    But you won’t be. You’ll either ignore me or call me names or put me down with some sort of snark that only you and your hypocritical readers will find worthwhile.

  • B. Franklin: “Admiration is the daughter of ignorance.”

    That which got him re-elected: The fruits of Barrack’s tireless labors for his constituencies and a more justified America:

    • Family Median dropped 8.2% since St. Barrack took over, an average drop of $4,000. Since the so-called recovery started June 2009, median incomes continued to fall, dropping $2,544, or 4.8%.

    • Long-term unemployed: More than three years into Obama’s recovery, 811,000 more still fall into this category than when the recession ended.

    • Poverty: The poverty rate climbed to 15.1% in 2010, up from 14.3% in 2009, and economists think it may have hit 15.7% last year, highest since the 1960s.

    • Food stamps: There are 11.8 million more people on food stamps since Obama’s recovery started.

    • Disability: More than 1 million workers have been added to Social Security’s disability program in the last three years.

    • Gas prices: A gallon of gas cost $1.89 when Obama was sworn in. By June 2009, the price was $2.70. Today, it’s $3.84.

    • Misery Index: When Obama took office, the combination of unemployment and inflation stood at 7.83. Today it’s 9.71.

    • Union membership: Even unions are worse off under Obama, with membership dropping half a million between 2009 and 2011.

    • Debt: Everyone is far worse off if you just look at the national debt. It has climbed more than $5 trillion under Obama, crossing $16 trillion for the first time on Tuesday and driving the U.S. credit rating down.

    Truth, justice, and the American Way: Just about the only people better off are corporate big-wigs who saw corporate profits climb over 50% in Obama’s “recovery”; and investors, who benefited from doubling the Dow industrials from its March 2009 lows.

  • Now I get it.

    Barrack spent the last four years bringing us the “good news.”

    The next four years, he will make America “well and truly blessed.”

  • “You’ll either ignore me or call me names or put me down with some sort of snark that only you and your hypocritical readers will find worthwhile.”

    Run out and get your copy of the book today Jeff. If you make a large enough contribution to the Southside Messiah I am sure he would be willing to autograph it for you. ( I trust you will find the snark in the reply sufficient.)

  • I think “Jeff” is the issue of some sort of spam generator.

  • Jeff forgot to capitalize the word Catholic. Or maybe not.

    “Jesus is very disappointed, I am sure.” It’s curious that lefties always know how Our Lord feels about things, and they know that he does not approve of us even when we point out contradictions to His own Gospel message.

  • Jeff, it would have been nice–genuinely good-hearted–if you had not just randomly dropped into a comment thread to vent against the site and its readers. How do your insults either embody or advance your views?

  • And here I thought Dale Price was pranking everyone by stringing together cliches. Too heavy handed for DP. Too self-aware for Todd Flowerday. Who could it be?

  • I would like to know from Jeff specifically what is so hateful about this blog site, its articles and the comments thereto. Closed minded and hateful commentary almost always gets a thorough rebuttal here. As for name calling, I do not think that anyone has done that to Jeff.

    By the way, Jesus’ reaction to money changers making profit off the vulnerable was to whip them into submission. One may hope and pray that that same thing happens to the purveyors of profitable infanticide at Planned Parenthood. And Jesus talked far more about the punishment of the fires of hell than He did about Paradise. In Luke 13, when the disciples approached Him with how Pilate had mingled the blood of rebels wth that of his animal sacrifices, Jesus told them that unless they repent, even worse would happen to them. Jesus spoke more about holiness than about love, explaining that unless our righteousness exceed that of the Scribes and Pharisees, we cannot expect to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus preached the Gospel of Conversion and Repentance, NOT the gospel of social justice, the common good and peace at any price. He said to give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s, and everything – even our very lives – belong to God.

    But I realize those very Christian ideals are radical to the liberal progressive Democrat for whom no Messiah but the Obamessiah will suffice. Of course, that’s called idolatry and violates the first Great Commandment that Jesus quoted from the Old Testament: Love God with all your heart, mind, body and soul.

  • Jeff,

    Quick: What is the Meditation for the First Joyful Mstery of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Vrigin Mary?

    It’s all Sandy’s fault.

    I am retiring the word “unexpectedly” and replacing it with “Surprise!”

    Surprise! OH and PA suffer the worst.

    Surprise! (from Zerohedge) A week after the election, unemployment numbers hit a new high: Get ready for the “it’s all Sandy’s fault” barrage, because the post-reelection status quo sure will desperately need it today. The latest initial claims data posted a multi-year high 104,548 surge in weekly NSA claims from 361,800 to 466,348, and even the Seasonally-adjusted number soaring from 361K to 439K on expectations of a 375K print.

    I was at St. Francis of Assisi Church an hour ago. Jesus isn’t ashamed of me.

  • Infidels the lot of you.
    Reality is what we say it is, and you are stupid idiots to think it is found in the Bible, which states Another’s Law and Teaching, or your Church’s Magisterium and Tradition.
    Learn manners and behavior from the undersigned.
    - signed,
    Thoughtless Bully Pulpit (message emphasized by pointing at you)

  • Nah–I have a little more panache than that. I’d have thrown in something like “siblings in Christ” to punch it up.

  • “I think “Jeff” is the issue of some sort of spam generator.”

    I don’t know. I think a spam generator would also have called us racist.

  • I think “Jeff” is the issue of some sort of spam generator.

    Not spam, though that is where any followup comments from him will go.

  • Hateful and biased columns?

    He must have been reading mine, lol.

    Seriously, the synopsis for this book is one of the most hilarious things I’ve read recently. I shouldn’t laugh at mental illness, though.

  • Hmmmmmmmmm — perhaps the author received her inspiration from The Gospel of Barack Hussein Obama (also not a parody).

  • Apparently, the “Apostle Barack” is winning converts to his Gospel of Death:

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/current_events/abortion/54_are_pro_choice_38_pro_life

    It wasn’t that long ago that we were hearing that the pro-life view was ascendant and perhaps even the majority view.

  • I used to think quite highly of Rasmussen until the last election. Considering that he predicted a D-2 electorate and the electorate was D-6, I think I will take all polls done by him for the foreseeable future with a boulder of salt.

    For what it is worth, Gallup, which also didn’t cover itself with glory in the last election, back in May had a poll which showed a pro-life majority:

    http://www.priestsforlife.org/statistics/12-05-23-gallup-poll.pdf

  • “Apparently, the “Apostle Barack” is winning converts to his Gospel of Death:”

    Just as his refusal to defend marriage is moving people to accept SSM. Leadership does have an effect on the public for good or evil.

  • “Hateful”: That was me before youse guys started moderating moi.

    Anyhow, the tolerant, progressive dons at Jesuitical Fordham U. remind me of Jeff.

    They condemn you as evil and ban you from speaking on campus if you were ever so horrid as to believe in free markets, private initiative, and other execrable principles, such as personal responsibility, e.g., Ann Coulter.

    But, they totally welcome you to push on campus infanticide, e.g., Peter Singer.

  • I am truly waxing hateful this evening.

    About double, 2,500,000, unemployed adults are living with the parents since Obama brought us the “good news.”

    And, going on three weeks later, there are still thousands of Obama voters without heat, lights or water in NYC. One blurted out, “Where you been?”

    Unlimited government: limited ability to help.

  • The post linked below on Hot Air references a CNN poll in August on abortion which shows a majority for pro-life:

    http://hotair.com/greenroom/archives/2012/11/15/re-rasmussens-abortion-poll/

    After this year’s election however, I think polls have about as much predictive value as reading chicken entrails or plain old-fashioned guessing.

  • there are still thousands of Obama voters without heat, lights…

    “heck of a job …” he he . I wonder how many of those “science and reality based” Democrats now understand that in the face of Mother Nature’s wrecking fury all our plans, contingencies and engineering abilities amount to nothing.

  • Take heart Donald, Dostoevsky shared your skepticism:

    It seemed to me that calculation was superfluous, and by no means possessed of the importance which certain other players attached to it, even though they sat with ruled papers in their hands, whereon they set down the coups, calculated the chances, reckoned, staked, and–lost exactly as we more simple mortals did who played without any reckoning at all. The Gamblers.

  • ‘ And, going on three weeks later, there are still thousands of Obama voters without heat, lights or water in NYC. One blurted out, “Where you been?”

    Unlimited government: limited ability to help.’

    1. Numbers of voters:
    - doesn’t matter as evidenced by getting more votes than there are voters
    - doesn’t matter because no R’s vote in certain machines anyway
    2. Compassion for suffering victims beyond words as seen in the union pitching in, er – and the charity buck stopping somewhere unseen, both going unreported to the victims during photo-ops. Schlepping things to people is work for what?, rewards in Heaven or a happy heart? That’s not in the above book.
    3. Governing stuff around the world stage – nobody’s business where. NYC is on the list and blaming dares not happen in 2012.

  • There’s also Barak’s miracle of the multiplication of the taxes and regulations. Plus, who can forget when Barak brought the blind and the sick to heel? Drove the moneychangers from Goldman Sachs into the temple? Or when Barak called out and the tax was raised and came forth from the tomb?

    And while fasting in the economic growth desert, Barak yielded to temptations; he transformed a stone into taxes then from high atop the temple he threw himself off the fiscal cliff and was held aloft by rising taxes…

  • “except this four star review by someone who has seen the Truth”

    That, too, sounds like total snark to me. Maybe I don’t run with the right crowd or something but not a single liberal Democrat I know (and I do know some) would take this book seriously.

  • Don, I am simply floored by that Book and by Jeff’s outburst. What in the name of the Holy Angels has happened toyour beloved U.S. of America??? But then, what would an old grandma like me know except remember that Hitler was elected by a landslide majority. Prayers for your country are ongoing.

  • “That, too, sounds like total snark to me.”

    Ya think? :)

    Linked below is a liberal Democrat who I am sure has his copy reserved:
    http://www.sfgate.com/entertainment/morford/article/Is-Obama-an-enlightened-being-Spiritual-wise-2544395.php

    People who aren’t nut cases and voted for Obama actually concern me far more than the Obama cultists Elaine. Rather on the same grounds when a client in a criminal matter advises me that he was drunk or stoned while doing something incredibly stupid, and my stock response is to reply, “Well, it is a relief at least to know that you weren’t stone cold sober when you did it!”

  • “Prayers for your country are ongoing.”

    I appreciate the prayers Mary. Unfortunately America and the world is going to go through a very rough patch indeed before any of this will get any better. Christ, in His mercy, will see us through.

  • Here’s a follow-up at HotAir on the Rasmussen poll showing a heavy pro-abortion tilt:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2012/11/15/rasmussen-54-now-call-themselves-pro-choice-38-pro-life/

    Looks like it’s more than just Rasmussen showing a shift to the pro-death side during this election.

  • Again, leaders make a difference. I wonder where we’ll be four years from now.

  • If American history is a guide, probably rejoicing in the repudiation of the Democrats at the polls. It is very rare in American history since FDR for a party to hold on to the White House for more than two terms, happening precisely once in 1988.

  • “All attempts to create heaven on earth lead to hell on earth.” Camus

  • Surprise!

    More good news!

    Super-storm Sandy claims more victims: Ding Dongs, Twinkies, et al.

    Next week’s 18,500 new, Hostess unemployment claims will be Sandy’s fault, too.

    Union struggles for heaven in the here-and-now played no part.

  • A PAGAN NATION?

    Has it finally come to an ignominious end?
    Must liberty and religious freedom we now rescind?
    Our Founding Fathers must now be assuredly aghast,
    If they knew their City on a Hill is now in the past.

    America was a definitive faith exercise.
    The United States is now decidedly otherwise.
    Compromise between good and evil can never prevail.
    Without the God our nation trusted, life is no avail.

    The Declaration of Independence we could once trust.
    Life, liberty, and happiness have been overcome with lust.
    Seeds of democracy’s destruction have now germinated.
    Every phase of government has been permeated.

    The American dream is now only a socialist scheme.
    It has then become a nightmare we can only blaspheme.
    American traitors committed a scandalous sin.
    They should never be allowed to enjoy freedom again.

    We must resurrect revolution to save us once more.
    Tyranny is something we have always known to deplore.
    God help return religious freedom to our native shore.
    So we can ask You to bless America evermore.

    Bob Rowland

  • I am very glad I had an empty stomach when I read the description of the book.
