The REAL Truth regarding the reign of Barack Hussein Obama

I didn’t write this, I don’t know who did, it was sent to me by a long-time reader and and an even longer time friend, all the way back to High School, but it is definitely thought-provoking, regardless of how anyone stands on political issues. 

Obama and his supporters loved talking about history. His victory was historic. They were on the right side of history. History was an inevitable arc that bent their way.

The tidal force of demographics had made the old America irrelevant. Any progressive policy agenda was now possible because we were no longer America. We Were Obamerica, a hip, happening place full of smiling gay couples, Muslim women in hijabs and transgender actors. We were all going to live in a New York City coffee house and work at Green Jobs and live in the post-national future.

The past was gone. We were falling into the gorgeous wonderful future of dot com instant deliveries and outsourced everything. We would become more tolerant and guilty. The future was Amazon and Disney. It was hot and cold running social justice. The Bill of Rights was done. Ending the First and Second Amendments was just a clever campaign away. Narratives on news sites drove everything.

Presidents were elected by Saturday Night Live skits. John Oliver, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee were our journalists. Safe spaces were everywhere and you better watch your micro aggressions, buddy. No more coal would be mined. No more anything would be made. The end of men was here. The end of the dead white men of the literary canon, the end of white people, the end of binary gender and marriage, the end of reason, the end of art, the end of 2 + 2 equaling 4.

This was Common Core time.

It was time to pardon an endless line of drug dealers, to kill cops and praise criminals, to be forced to buy worthless health insurance for wealth redistribution to those who voted their way to wealth.

This was Obama’s America. And there was no going back. We were rushing through endless goal posts of social transformation. The military fell, then the police. Now it looks as quaint as anything from the 50s, the 60s, the 70s or the 80s. A brief moment of foolishness that already appears odd and awkward, and then one day nostalgic, it wasn’t the future. It’s already the past, it’s history.

Scalia died. Hillary Clinton was bound to win. And she would define the Supreme Court. Down ticket races would give her a friendly Senate, and then perhaps the House.

But there is no right side of history. There is only the side we choose.

The Obama era was permanent. It was historic. Now it is history.

Its shocking ascendancy has been paired with an equally shocking descent.

The Obama era is done, it’s gone, and it’s over. It was wiped from the pages of history in one night that left Congress and the White House in Republican hands.

It would have been bad enough if Jeb Bush had succeeded Obama. That would have been inconvenient, but not a repudiation. Instead Obama’s legacy was dashed to pieces. His frantic efforts to campaign for Hillary did no good. The public did not vocally reject him. What they did was in its own way even worse. They brushed past him. They sidelined him. They gave him passable approval ratings while dismissing his biggest accomplishments.

They forgot him. They made it clear that he did not matter.

And that is, in its own way, far more brutal and wounding. They didn’t just destroy the Obama era; instead they dismissed it as if it never existed.

Obama didn’t make history after all. He wasn’t a teleprompter demi-god standing athwart of history. He was Carter and Ford. He was there to be forgotten. He didn’t change the world. He wasn’t the messiah. He was merely mortal, just another politician who will sag and age. Who will, in the end, be photographed like Bill Clinton, lonely and lost in a world that has passed him by.

The Obama era ends not with a bang, but with a whimper; with a national consensus that maybe he didn’t really matter so much after all. And those to whom he did matter the most to were his enemies determined to undo everything he did.

Obama once thought that he belonged to the ages. Now he does: the dust bin of ages.

Soon Obama will be gone and a new POTUS will attempt to lead us into a new era, an era of returned American greatness and success. He will be fought *tooth and nail* by the Democratic members of Congress and the Senate, perhaps by some within the GOP as well, by if WE, THE PEOPLE stand together and back Donald J. Trump, the damage that HAS been caused by Obama can be wiped away as we disinfect this nation from the disease of Liberalism.

    JDP…The dismal hope and change Obama tried to usher in was just his own warped ideals of how it should be, it was not for the betterment of all Americans. Canceling the National day of prayer, then going to a Muslim religious event, he had hoped going against congress with his EXECUTIVE ORDERS would be of little consequences perhaps but when the order was for ISIS embedded refugees from Syria courts seem to refuse his request. His hope did not care abut taxpayer money he was spending went from 10 trillion debt to 20 trillion,taking vacations at 100 million dollars without a flinch of care.Lying about Obama-care[keep your] knowing it was a lie was his change to force people to do his will [ dictator he became], he has not grown up still acts like a dictator wanting his way all the time, he changed who he was by releasing 5 Taliban and not involving congress of this criminal licit act. he changed into a lawless one not respecting our laws. He has released many many bad criminals just because he has power to do so, this should be stricken from presidents because presidents did not put these people in prison, our laws did. and or changed to have limits of 3- 5 people only.

      Agree, presidents should not be allowed to release criminals and terrorists from prison just because they feel like it. There should be a law that if a president wants to pardon or free someone then it must be presented to congress and they vote on it. Ditto with governors and their stunts.
