Biden’s Narcissist Puppet Master

Pundits have reason to believe that Obama, through Susan Rice, is Biden’s primary puppet master.

Published

Among the several thousands slings and arrows that the Left aimed at President Trump, every minute of his presidency, was that he is a dyed-in-the-wool narcissist.  I have no degree in psychology, and no clinical background, however, it likely is true that Donald Trump exhibits many characteristics of narcissism.

Trump cannot, in the least, hold a candle to the greatest narcissist that the U.S. presidency has ever had to endure, someone who easily merited the title Narcissist-in-Chief: the unbearably conceited, one and only, Barack Obama.

Why bring this up now when Obama holds no elected office? Many political pundits on the right have reason to believe that Obama, through Susan Rice, current director of the U.S. States Domestic Policy Council, is pulling Biden’s strings.

Obama’s Water Girl

Rice has carried Obama’s water many times. The most egregious, perhaps, was when Obama sent her on a two-week juggernaut of political talk shows claiming that an insulting video prompted the September 11, 2012 attacks on our consulate in Benghazi.

The ploy involved concealing news of the attack, on that ignominious anniversary, until weeks after September 11, 2012, so that Obama’s poll numbers during the election season would not plummet.

This move was classic Obama who had been “all about himself” from the moment he stepped into the public spotlight.

Going Public

Once he entered the White House in 2009, his decades-in-the-making narcissism went quite public, even if largely unnoticed by his throngs of admirers, and under-reported by the sycophantic press.

Obama paid homage to JFK by posting a photograph of himself looking longingly at a portrait of the late, assassinated president.

Obama sent Queen Elizabeth of England a gift – two of his speeches, saved on an iPod. The Queen already possessed an iPod, but no big deal. It must have been a thrill for her, amidst a lifetime of them, to have received Obama’s recordings. It certainly was a thrill for Obama.

Not coincidentally, Obama bestowed this gift to the Queen around the time that he had returned the bust of Winston Churchill which had long graced the Oval Office.

Look at Me!

When Neil Armstrong, the first man who put his foot on the moon in 1969, passed away in August, 2012, how did Obama publicly remember Neil Armstrong? He presented a picture of himself gazing up at the moon. Gazing up at the moon. You cannot make this stuff up.

When Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, war hero, and longtime public servant passed away in December, 2012, Obama spoke eloquently about Inouye’s life.

If you listen closely, however, he reflected upon the Senator only as Inouye related to own life. In other words, he was speaking about Inouye on the surface, but actually was touting “me, me, and me.”

Touching Remembrances

To honor the late Rosa Parks, in February, 2013, Obama posted a picture of himself in the same bus seat where she had sat. How moving! That seat must have felt blessed.

When Nelson Mandela of South Africa passed in December, 2013, and the world mourned, so did Obama. He marked the occasion by tweeting a photo of himself and one of his daughters in Mandela’s #5 cell on Robben Island. Looking down from heaven, undoubtedly, Nelson Mandela was touched.

Close your eyes and imagine that Donald Trump had done the same – tweeted a similar kind of photo of himself with Ivanka in Mandela’s cell. Would the media machine ever let this go? Would this not be included as a major item in Trump’s future obituary?

Sinking to the Bottom

On the 70th anniversary of the USS Arizona sinking in Pearl Harbor, Obama ‘honored’ the dead sailors by issuing a picture of himself walking down the stairs in front of the USS Arizona Memorial. The name of the ship was obscured in the picture, but Obama looked good.

You get this picture: Obama could never and can never get enough of himself. He goes of his way to ensure that everyone else cannot either.

Obama’s brand of over-the-top narcissism continues to this day. In the last year, he made the rounds on political talk shows, late night TV, and prime media platforms, reserved, of course, only for Lefties.

You Didn’t Write That

In November and December, Obama touted his new, 700-page book, A Promised Land, which, incredibly, covers only part of his presidential administration.

The ‘newspaper of record,’ the New York Times gushed: ‘Barack Obama as fine a writer as they come. It is not merely that this book avoids being ponderous, as might be expected, even forgiven, of a hefty memoir, but that it is nearly always pleasurable to read, sentence by sentence, the prose gorgeous in places, the detail granular and vivid.’

My guess is that Barack ‘you didn’t build it’ Obama didn’t write that.

Now Hear This

The audio edition of A Promised Land is ONLY 29 hours long — far longer than the respective audio editions of current biographies on Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin, and Albert Einstein, each of whom actually accomplished great deeds.

While Beijing Biden does more of Obama’s bidding, we’ll have to wait with bated breath for the second volume. Hopefully, it will not run 700 pages, but with a world-class narcissist, who can say?

It might be much longer.

Leftist ‘Journalists’ and Media Outlets: Quite Far From Impartial and Objective

The Left grants free passes to Joe Biden for his legions of treasonous, immoral, and illegal transgressions.

Published

on

Hollywood loves to portray leftist media outlets, newspapers, and journalists as fair and impartial. Indeed, there is no other way that these institutions and such individuals have been portrayed, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. A recent example is the movie She Said, which is the latest in a long line of productions that extol the virtues of one of the nation’s oldest newspapers, the New York Times.

Starring Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kavan, Patricia Clarkson, Andre Braugher, and Ashley Judd, as herself, She Said is a story about the New York Times investigation of Harvey Weinstein. Some of the heartfelt testimony of the people the reporters interviewed are quite touching. Yet, the movie oversells the impact of the Times reporting. Investigative reporter Ronan Farrow had already published a major, professional, factual expose on Weinstein in the New Yorker.

Impartial, Caring, Concerned People?

She Said goes out of its way to present the New York Times editorial staff as carefully line-editing stories, and as impartial, caring, concerned people, interested only in truth and in getting articles right before publishing them. A major case in point is how veteran actor Andre Braugher portrays Dean Baquet, who served as the executive editor of Times from May 2014 to June 2022. Baquet is depicted as the voice of reason, proceeding with calm, cool clarity.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Antifa is back in force

In reality, Baquet is one of the major players on earth who kept the now thoroughly-debunked ‘Trump Collusion with Russia’ hoax alive and along with Adam Schiff did major damage to this country. For three years, and without evidence, pretty much daily the Times falsely claimed that Donald Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

The hopelessly biased Baquet decided to switch gears after the Mueller Report imploded. At Baquet’s direction, the Times would shift its focus of its coverage from the ‘Trump-Russia affair’ to the president’s ‘alleged racism.’

Not a Journalist, in Any Way

“We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well,” Baquet said, rather proudly, apparently grossly unaware of the historically profound idiocy of his statement. “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story.” A truthful story?

Through daily erroneous reporting, the ‘newspaper of record’ would now seek to expose ‘the racism’ of President Trump, which, to this day, it has not proven.

Baquet is not a journalist in any sense of the word; not even close. He is a shill of the Democrat party; what Vladimir Lenin termed a ‘useful idiot.’ Keep this in mind as you watch this otherwise engaging movie, and then ask yourself this: Where is the Times in relation to Joe Biden?

Baquet remained in his post for the first 17 months of the Biden administration. While the Times and the Left in general are perpetually eager to identify, dissect, catalog, and endlessly detail the faults of Donald Trump (real, imagined, or most concocted out of whole cloth), they deny or downplay a mountain of misdeeds by Joe Biden, as they also did with Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton.

Lifetime Free Passes

Many pundits now exclaim that to block Biden from running in 2024, the Times and the leftist media machine in general have now turned on him. The current classified documents scandal aside, the Left grants free passes to Joe Biden for the legions of transgressions in his life. They overlook or downplay that he cheated in college, cheated in previous political campaigns, is a serial liar, and worse. All of this well-documented. They ignore, contort, or censor news that he has made legions of racist statements for his whole political career; e.g., “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

The Left belittles or ignores Tara Reade’s quite credible sexual assault accusation against Joe Biden, and that of seven other women, as well. They pretend that Creepy Uncle Joe does not have a fetish for sniffing little girls’ hair. They pretend that Biden does not constantly invade the personal space of females.

The Left ignores solid reporting and extensive documentation indicating the Biden family received millions of dollars via influence peddling to Communist China, as well as from Kazakhstan, Romania, Russia, and, above all, Ukraine. They will never acknowledge that Biden is an enabler for both his brother James and his son Hunter, and that Biden is credibly accused of selling out the U.S. They excuse the multiple batches of classified documents found recently in Biden’s domains.

Above it All

The Left especially avoids referring to any signs that Biden is suffering from ever-worsening dementia, despite his numerous mental lapses on the world stage.

In short, prior to the ever-growing classified documents scandal, leftist journalists and media outlets, constantly demonstrated how far they are from being impartial and objective. They had, defacto, deemed Democrat Joe Biden to be above the law, and now are actively undermining his continuing political aspirations.

Mini-Movie Reviews, 5

Be wary of the hopelessly biased “She Says”

Mini-Movie Reviews, 5

In this last third of the month, here are three more reviews for your edification:

Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris — starring Leslie Manville as a post WWII widow, is the ultimate chick flick for seniors, where luck abounds at every turn. Everything either goes well, or it goes awry and then turns out well. Watch this if you want to see something fairly entertaining and light-hearted.

Avatar: The Way of Water — is an overwrought, 3-hour ‘comic book,’ put on the big screen, primarily for 14 to 18 year old boys. I would be thoroughly amazed if anybody on my movie review list could sit through 3 hours of this, let alone half that time. There is nothing thematically inspiring here. The actors are good, but the plot is thin and predictable. While the production is likely to win numerous Oscars for technical achievements, that is all it could ever win.
