I have often referred to President Barack Obama here in my blog as "The Manchurian President".
For those of you who don't know, it is a play on words to the title of a 1962 Frank Sinatra movie called "The Manchurian Candidate". In the movie, Sinatra plays a U.S. soldier who is kidnapped along with several other soldiers during fighting in the Korean War, and taken to Manchuria. There, he and the others are brainwashed by Chinese Communists to commit political assassinations when they return to the United States. The psychological "trigger" to activate Sinatra as a "sleeper agent" and an assassin was for him to see the Queen of Diamonds playing card.
The film was clever, and interesting, but pretty much got scrubbed out of existence after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in 1963. After that happened, the film was considered "in poor taste" and few copies of it even exist now. But the concept of someone at the highest levels of power being a secret agent for the opposition has always fascinated writers and film directors.
One of my friends who is a liberal Democrat once pointed out to me that Barack Obama is the only candidate for President who was ever asked to produce his birth certificate. He said that it was racist and only happened because Obama is black.
I told him that I disagree with that opinion.
I told him that part of the reason is that there are public documents in Indonesia that state that Barack Obama is actually named "Barry Soetoro" and that he is a Muslim. Now to be quite honest, I think this paperwork exists only because Obamas step-father was a little embarrassed about his wife having previously had a child with another man, and he decided to cover it up by "fudging" the information on the school paperwork.
But the facts remain the facts.
Barack Obama is the only American President who has lived outside of the United States and conspired with people who are our enemies. Obama lived in Indonesia with his step-father and attended a Muslim school. He listened to years of indoctrination... that there is only one God, and his name is Allah. He was told by those in that faith that the killing of Christians and Jews is a perfectly acceptable practice, because the long term goal of Islam is the enslavement and domination of the entire world.
Now, to be fair, maybe Obama was able to shrug off this Muslim indoctrination.
But...what if he wasn't?
Saint Francis Xavier of the Jesuits had one of the most famous quotes in world history when he said ....
"Give me a child until he is seven, and I will give you the man."
Translation: Childrens formative years are the most crucial of all.
Is it possible that Barack Obama is a sleeper agent for the Muslims of Indonesia?
Is the Muslim call to prayer Barack Obamas own personal "Queen of Diamonds" activation trigger?
Probably not. I certainly hope that isn't the case.
But the fact that I even have to think about it upsets me greatly, and I am angry with the Democrats for making such an incredibly poor choice as Barack Obama as their ultimate leader.
For me, Barack Obama will always be The Manchurian President.
