Thomas Sowell - the Monstrous Possibility of a Perfidious Presidency

Perfidious - deliberately faithless; treacherous; deceitful; traitorous.

Thomas Sowell Compares Obama to Benedict Arnold

I’ve been reading a fascinating book that has some eerie parallels to current events. In A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal, Ben Macintyre and John Le Carre tell the true story of how the son of an aristocratic English family was recruited to be a Soviet agent when he was a student at Cambridge University. Philby wasn’t the only one - Cambridge was apparently a hotbed of socialists in the 30’s, and produced a whole ring of young men from wealthy families who betrayed their country to the communists.

Philby was recruited by MI-6, the British equivalent of the CIA, and rose to become the chief of counter-intelligence. The signs that he was a traitor were there for anyone to see, but even after he was accused of being a communist spy his friends in the agency protected him and even sent him to Washington, D.C. as the liason to American intelligence.

The CIA’s top counter-intelligence officer, James Jesus Angleton, was one of Philby’s best friends and staunchest supporters. The old saying that, before they set out to deceive others they went to extraordinary lengths to deceive themselves comes to mind. Philby did incalculable damage and caused the capture and death of hundreds of people helping the West in communist countries. One of his closest friends, who even lived with him and his family for a time, was an alcoholic, flamboyant homosexual who was also a Soviet mole in British intelligence. He was allowed to “escape” to Russia, probably because the British “intelligence” agencies wanted to avoid a public airing of their recklessness.

What is so frightening is the parallel with Barack Obama. All the signs were there when he was elected, but the voters, in their fever to elect the nation’s “first black president,” wantonly disregarded them.

Investors Business Daily this week ran an article by Thomas Sowell titled The Monstrous Possibility of a Perfidious Presidency. Reviewing just some of Obama's actions that are harmful to America (open borders, allowing Ebola infected people in, sending troops to Liberia to do a Red Cross gig, while the Islamofacists rape, torture and behead, etc.). Sowell writes Obama "takes his conception of himself a a citizen of the world more seriously than he takes his role as president of the United States. At worst, he may consider Americans' interest expendable in the grand scheme of things internationally."
"Those critic who have been citing Obama's foreign policy fiascos and disasters as evidence that he is incompeent may be overlooking the possibility that he has different priorities than the protection of the American people and America's interest as a nation. This is a monstrous possibility."

Swarmed, Tasered, and trundled into a vehicle blindfolded—and that was just the beginning for alleged al Qaeda member Abu Anas al-Liby. Now he’s complaining about his treatment.

from Breitbart.com
The commander of the U.S. Southern Command said al Qaeda raises “a lot of money” by allowing Latin American drug cartels to traffic cocaine into Europe through West Africa, explicitly associating the two enterprises.
“We know that the cocaine that flows out of Bolivia and Peru, the number one and number two producer, feeds the cocaine habit around the world,” said U.S. Marine Gen. John Kelly, commander of Southcom, during an October 7 speech delivered to an audience at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C.

More Pervert Preachers

from Daily Beast:
Pastor Has AIDS, Slept With Congregants

Juan Demetrius McFarland, the now-former pastor of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, recently admitted from the pulpit that he has AIDS and has slept with church members. He did not reveal to those women that he was infected. McFarland said he contracted HIV in 2003, and in 2008 discovered it had progressed to AIDS. He had been pastor for 23 years. “He concealed from the church that he had knowingly engaged in adultery in the church building with female members of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church while knowingly having AIDS,” said church deacon Nathan Williams Jr. McFarland has also admitted to drug use and mishandling church funds.

‘7th Heaven’ Dad Stephen Collins and the Christian Right’s Real Morality Tale

He's not really a preacher but he played one on t.v.

A man who allegedly touched little girls was the warm, smiling face of an effort to make the rest of us feel guilty about our non-abusive, consensual sex lives.
A mere month after releasing the security video footage showing Ray Rice committing a horrific act of domestic violence, TMZ has outed another celebrity who would rather keep his abusive behavior secret. The tabloid website released the purported audio of Stephen Collins, a long-time actor most famous for his role as the pastor-dad on the WB show 7th Heaven, confessing to his wife during therapy his repeated sexual abuse of underage girls. The NYPD is investigating and at least one woman, the daughter of his first wife, is coming forward with accusations.
