“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things: Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax– Of ‘legacies’–and kings– . . .”

Ozymandias: A prophetic poem to the hubris of rulers desiring to monumentalize themselves and their legacy:

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear —
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.’

Ozymandias, Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)


Such are the “…relics of overweening hubris, where every stone speaks of a tyrant’s bloody oppression of his people.”

Now recall …

“this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal…this was the time we came together to remake this great nation.” . . . “We are the Ones We have been waiting for.”

With echoes of Genesis, the world was on the verge of becoming not only (Barack Obama’s) stage but also his dominion.   Little did we realize that his grandiosity was not just a celebratory outburst but the articulation in sound-bite form of his plan to truly remake our country (by the destruction of it). These words are also his political epitaph, as his plans run aground crashing into the rocky shores of reality.

Barack Obama has an edifice complex, not of buildings but of expansive and oppressive government programs, and after he has finished leaving his mark, America is left paying the price for decades to come. Barack Obama has turned over more that one-sixth of the U.S. economy into the greedy hands of crony bureaucrats and ideologues with barely any real world experience.

Recall all those early Obama posters and personalized logos wallpapering America along with his ubiquitous third-worldly presence on television and other media? His narcissism was then, and even now, never ending. His insatiable megalomania when it comes to leaving monuments to his own reign behind, is less than reasonably tolerable. We were warned about him years ago, but many just weren’t paying attention. 

From the very beginning, Obama made it perfectly clear to all America that under his plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates and energy costs would skyrocket and probably bankrupt the coal industry. His ultimate goal, as it has now been revealed, was to essentially kill off free enterprise, reduce disposable family incomes and rely on expanded weaponized government fiats to extort loads of money from American taxpayers; all as he forced his green energy schemes down our collective throats.  All this so he could bask in the hubris of his own “Made by Obama” label.

Without realizing it, Obama and his party have shown America their megalomaniac agenda at work, an edifice complex in its full budget-busting, bankrupting glory. Portraying the American people as ‘deplorable’ bitter clingers who grasp onto their wallets for dear life as their pocketbooks are ransacked to build monuments to Obama’s and his party’s own egos. These inflated and ruinously expensive dreams of reengineering America in Obama and his party’s ‘s image of despotic socialism have wreaked havoc on people’s views of him and his party. Yet for him and his dedicated sycophants, if its not the peoples fault, there are always plenty of others to blame, other than themselves.

The fact remains as America finds itself mired in debt for decades to come, and its national security and safety lie in a questionable state, all due to the fantastical exercises of Obama’s objectified egoism, remarkable ineptitude, and overwhelming hubris; his ‘Half sunk, shattered visage lies,’ already partially buried in the sand along with his national and global, pathologically delusional reputation as his legacy.

(Anti-Americanism) Endgame of the Obama administration

. . .  Obama is not a man who cherishes freedom. … For eight years, he has prostituted himself around the world, apologizing for America’s “sins,” over-regulating us to the point of madness, and restricting more and more of the freedom we once took for granted.  He is chasing what he assumed would be his illustrious legacy.  That it will not be.  Obama’s legacy will be one of failure on every front: domestic, economic, foreign policy, race, and culture.
. . .
Obama has ruined American health care.  He has destroyed the Middle East, enabled genocide with little response or discernible care. He has prostituted himself to Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism, and smoothed that nation’s expedited path to nuclear weapons. He has betrayed Israel at every turn.

Obama’s priorities are anathema to most of the American people.  He did not lift a finger to stop the genocide of Christians throughout the Middle East by ISIS but has imported tens of thousands of Muslim refugees, some of whom will most certainly terrorize us.  He has allowed tens of thousands of migrants from Central America to enter the country and stay at taxpayer expense.  He has released thousands of criminal illegal immigrants onto the streets of our communities where they daily commit more crimes.  He has commuted the sentences of hundreds of violent criminals.  Is it any wonder that the crime rate is rising in all major cities?

He has forced abortion, gay marriage, transgender bathrooms, etc. on a population, the majority of which cherish their traditional values.  He loathes both Christianity and Judaism and is tolerant only of Islam.  The man, from day one, has set out to submarine, to adulterate, our nation, to make it into something it was never meant to be.  He wanted to take us down a few pegs, and he has. But enough American voters have spoken.  They are done with the self-righteous, narcissistic young president who had so much pride in his community activist past that he believed himself to be the next Saul Alinsky, as if that were a good thing! . . .

“Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times, it’s enemy action.” ~ Ian Fleming

At this time, Obama et al. is ending the closing chapter of their tortuous and despicably destructive tenure of what was once considered to be a constitutional government headed by an American presidency. Obama and his blatantly anti-American regime, along with their Americophobic political allies have obviously proven that their primary purpose is to use Alinsky’s communist/socialist tactics, while implementing a Cloward–Piven strategy to sabotage the system of government causing enough chaos, to derail and stifle progress, and increase the time required to repair their damage.  Obama and his minions are subversively applying this method to every aspect and segment of the government they controlled, including all policies and regulations. Their actions proves without a doubt, that Obama and his regime’s original intentions is to fully and treacherously destroy America’s constitutional republic, This is a reality.

Obama’s goals, though disguised to some, were utterly obvious to those who refused to drink from the delusional fountain of insanity which his sycophantic propagandists continue to generously provide the ignorant populace. From the very beginning Obama and his colleagues are Manchurian candidates, sleeper agents and provocateurs, put in place to usher in a post-American world. He and they, are a diabolical menace to freedom and have no qualms of telegraphing their purpose to useful idiots and political tools, which they can dupe into believing he and his regime are something other than what they are supposed to be. They are obviously not true Americans.

The term Treason is an understatement regarding what is actually happening within this country and by this outgoing administration. In any case, treason is a term best suited to describe the very actions Americans are now able to see. America has failed to heed the dire warnings of those on the outside who were not trapped by all the psycho-programmed emotion, madness and myopic circus that historically had been pointed out to them for some time. If America’s problem was just some big “conspiracy” as it was pejoratively portrayed at the onset, what pray tell has in now evolved into?

The question is does America recognize it has a serious problem, and if does, is it willing to do what is absolutely necessary to take care of that problem, effectively, expediently, and without prejudice? Certainly time is going to tell. And the time on the clock is running out.

Hopefully the purposely induced ‘reign of terror‘ that now runs rampant across Europe, and the detrimental effects it is having in the Middle-East, and beyond, are not the harbingers of what this outgoing political figurehead and his regime ultimately planned for America, although in all likelihood, it probably is.  Nevertheless, from the looks of things, there may be much more that will take place before average American citizens get their heads forcibly ripped out of the sand, and recognize there truly is a problem they have neglected to take care of for far too long.

What will happen? Is history likely to repeat itself with the same level of vengeance it had in the past? Hopefully not, but if nothing else, it is very important to understand exactly what ‘winning’ any war truly entails. The reality of it, and what many citizens, as well as, bureaucrats and politicians purposely deny, and conveniently cast aside, is that high intensity conflict, especially that of an open ‘civil warfare‘ is most notable for its vastly inhumane horrors, carnage and savagery. Delegating death from some far away ‘safe-space’ and out of harms way looks completely different than when in the heat of flesh destroying combat and on the bloody fields of battle. When survival is paramount and acts of valor and bravery are called upon, there is no such thing as ‘courageous restraint.‘ To most this concept is obvious, but for many of those ‘out-of-touch‘ others, not so much so.

Maybe it will not be too late, or the outcome too bloody before we find a solution for what is really about to take place, but personally, I’m not going to be putting any bets on it either way.
