"Obama Will Be One of The Greatest (and Most Loved) American Presidents"

[Editor's Note: I can only hope that there are enough black people in this country who can still retain the capacity to think and will not whole hog jump onto the Rockefeller/Obama bandwagon, as my friend here, simply because they've become intoxicated by the thought of a man who is part negro, being elected the next President of the United States. Obama's election win is assured, I can promise you that. However, that doesn't mean that anyone who still has a brain in his head should vote for him. The alternative to Obama is not the Rockefeller/McCain ticket either, as the web site below would have you believe. The third party candidates running for President in the 2008 election are: Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney, and Chuck Baldwin. You will find their names listed in the voting booths. Please feel free to vote for any one of them as any one of those candidates are preferable to Illuminati puppets Obama or McCain by a margin of a billion to one....Ken Adachi]

Hi ............,

You've been a big supporter and booster of my web site over the years and I greatly appreciate your long standing patronage.

I'm witnessing something here that's a little bit hard to believe and I suppose it's not my place to say anything about it, but it seems that you've jumped down the rabbit hole and prefer to live in Wonderland these days.

I guess the dismal facts are no longer of interest to you when emotional longings have overtaken logic and critical analysis.

Take the time to read this essay and then part three afterwards.

After reading both parts, let me know how true the Schaeffer article holds up.

By the way, do you have any idea who the real Ariana Huffington is and why this guy's article appears on the "Huffington Post"?

Sincerely, Ken

Obama Will Be One of The Greatest (and Most Loved) American Presidents

Great presidents are made great by horrible circumstances combined with character, temperament and intelligence. Like firemen, cops, doctors or soldiers, presidents need a crisis to shine.

Obama is one of the most intelligent presidential aspirants to ever step forward in American history. The likes of his intellectual capabilities have not been surpassed in public life since the Founding Fathers put pen to paper. His personal character is also solid gold. Take heart, America: we have the leader for our times.

I say this as a white, former life-long Republican. I say this as the proud father of a Marine. I say this as just another American watching his pension evaporate along with the stock market! I speak as someone who knows it's time to forget party loyalty, ideology and pride and put the country first. I say this as someone happy to be called a fool for going out on a limb and declaring that, 1) Obama will win, and 2) he is going to be amongst the greatest of American presidents.

Obama is our last best chance. He's worth laying it all on the line for.

This is a man who in the age of greed took the high road of community service. This is the good father and husband. This is the humble servant. This is the patient teacher. This is the scholar statesman. This is the man of deep Christian faith.

Good stories about Obama abound; from his personal relationship with his Secret Service agents (he invites them into his home to watch sports, and shoots hoops with them) to the story about how, more than twenty years ago, while standing in the check-in line at an airport,

Obama paid a $100 baggage surcharge for a stranger who was broke and stuck. (Obama was virtually penniless himself in those days.) Years later after he became a senator, that stranger recognized Obama's picture and wrote to him to thank him. She received a kindly note back from the senator.

(The story only surfaced because the person, who lives in Norway, told a local newspaper after Obama ran for the presidency. The paper published a photograph of this lady proudly displaying Senator Obama's letter.)

Where many leaders are two-faced; publicly kindly but privately feared and/or hated by people closest to them, Obama is consistent in the way he treats people, consistently kind and personally humble. He lives by the code that those who lead must serve. He believes that. He lives it. He lived it long before he was in the public eye.

Obama puts service ahead of ideology. He also knows that to win politically you need to be tough. He can be. He has been. This is a man who does what works, rather than scoring ideological points. In other words he is the quintessential non-ideological pragmatic American. He will (thank God!) disappoint ideologues and purists of the left and the right.

Obama has a reservoir of personal physical courage that is unmatched in presidential history. Why unmatched? Because as the first black contender for the presidency who will win, Obama, and all the rest of us, know that he is in great physical danger from the seemingly unlimited reserve of unhinged racial hatred, and just plain unhinged ignorant hatred, that swirls in the bowels of our wounded and sinful country. By stepping forward to lead,

Obama has literally put his life on the line for all of us in a way no white candidate ever has had to do. (And we all know how dangerous the presidency has been even for white presidents.)

Nice stories or even unparalleled courage isn't the only point. The greater point about Obama is that the midst of our worldwide financial meltdown, an expanding (and losing) war in Afghanistan, trying to extricate our country from a wrong and stupidly mistaken ruinously expensive war in Iraq, our mounting and crushing national debt, awaiting the next (and inevitable) al Qaeda attack on our homeland, watching our schools decline to Third World levels of incompetence, facing a general loss of confidence in the government that has been exacerbated by the Republicans doing all they can to undermine our government's capabilities and programs...

President Obama will take on the leadership of our country at a make or break time of historic proportions. He faces not one but dozens of crisis, each big enough to define any presidency in better times.

As luck, fate or divine grace would have it (depending on one's personal theology) Obama is blessedly, dare I say uniquely, well-suited to our dire circumstances. Obama is a person with hands-on community service experience, deep connections to top economic advisers from the renowned University of Chicago where he taught law, and a middle-class background that gives him an abiding knowledgeable empathy with the rest of us.

As the son of a single mother, who has worked his way up with merit and brains, recipient of top-notch academic scholarships, the peer-selected editor of the Harvard Law Review and, in three giant political steps to state office, national office and now the presidency, Obama clearly has the wit and drive to lead.

Obama is the sober voice of reason at a time of unreason. He is the fellow keeping his head while all around him are panicking. He is the healing presence at a time of national division and strife.

He is also new enough to the political process so that he doesn't suffer from the terminally jaded cynicism, the seen-it-all-before syndrome afflicting most politicians in Washington. In that regard we Americans lucked out. It's as if having despaired of our political process we picked a name from the phone book to lead us and that person turned out to be a very man we needed.

Obama brings a healing and uplifting spiritual quality to our politics at the very time when our worst enemy is fear. For eight years we've been ruled by a stunted fear-filled mediocrity of a little liar who has expanded his power on the basis of creating fear in others. Fearless Obama is the cure. He speaks a litany of hope rather than a litany of terror.

As we have watched Obama respond in a quiet reasoned manner to crisis after crisis, in both the way he has responded after being attacked and lied about in the 2008 campaign season, to his reasoned response to our multiplying national crises, what we see is the spirit of a trusted family doctor with a great bedside manner. Obama is perfectly suited to hold our hand and lead us through some very tough times. The word panic is not in the Obama dictionary.

America is fighting its 'Armageddon' in one fearful heart at a time. A brilliant leader with the mild manner of an old-time matter-of-fact country doctor soothing a frightened child is just what we need. The fact that our 'doctor' is a black man leading a hitherto white-ruled nation out of the mess of its own making is all the sweeter and raises the Obama story to that of moral allegory.

Obama brings a moral clarity to his leadership reserved for those who have had to work for everything they've gotten and had to do twice as well as the person standing next to them because of the color of their skin. His experience of succeeding in spite of his color, social background and prejudice could have been embittering or one that fostered a spiritual rebirth of forgiveness and enlightenment. Obama radiates the calm inner peace of the spirit of forgiveness.

Speaking as a believing Christian I see the hand of a merciful God in Obama's candidacy. The biblical metaphors abound. The stone the builder rejected is become the cornerstone... the last shall be first... he that would gain his life must first lose it... the meek shall inherit the earth...

For my secular friends I'll allow that we may have just been extraordinarily lucky! Either way America wins.

Only a brilliant man, with the spirit of a preacher and the humble heart of a kindly family doctor can lead us now. We are afraid, out of ideas, and worst of all out of hope. Obama is the cure. And we Americans have it in us to rise to the occasion. We will. We're about to enter one of the most frightening periods of American history. Our country has rarely faced more uncertainty. This is the time for greatness. We have a great leader. We must be a great people backing him, fighting for him, sacrificing for a cause greater than ourselves.

A hundred years from now Obama's portrait will be placed next to that of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt. Long before that we'll be telling our children and grandchildren that we stepped out in faith and voted for a young black man who stood up and led our country back from the brink of an abyss. We'll tell them about the power of love, faith and hope. We'll tell them about the power of creativity combined with humility and intellectual brilliance.

We'll tell them that President Obama gave us the gift of regaining our faith in our country. We'll tell them that we all stood up and pitched in and won the day. We'll tell them that President Obama restored our standing in the world. We'll tell them that by the time he left office our schools were on the mend, our economy booming, that we'd become a nation filled with green energy alternatives and were leading the world away from dependence on carbon-based destruction.

We'll tell them that because of President Obama's example and leadership the integrity of the family was restored, divorce rates went down, more fathers took responsibility for their children, and abortion rates fell dramatically as women, families and children were cared for through compassionate social programs that worked. We'll tell them about how the gap closed between the middle class and the super rich, how we won health care for all, how crime rates fell, how bad wars were brought to an honorable conclusion.

We'll tell them that when we were attacked again by al Qaeda, how reason prevailed and the response was smart, tough, measured and effective, and our civil rights were protected even in times of crisis...

We'll tell them that we were part of the inexplicably blessed miracle that happened to our country those many years ago in 2008 when a young black man was sent by God, fate or luck to save our country. We'll tell them that it's good to live in America where anything is possible. Yes we will.

Subject: I have no idea who the real Ariana Huffington is. Who is she?

Dear Ken,

Thanks for the Info which I have no problem dealing with. I was always suspicious of his rap and don't trust him at all just considered him the least pernicious of the choices.

And I have no idea who the real Ariana Huffington is. Who is she?



Hi ............,

She was born in Greece to a father described as a journalist and 'management consultant', and a mother who was an author. She was educated in England, and became the live-in girlfriend between 1972-1980 of Bernard Levin, an English journalist, author, and TV panelist, 22 years her senior.

She left Levin in 1980 because he wouldn't marry her and came to California where she hooked up with then governor Jerry Brown and was known as a "liberal" left winger.

Ann Getty, wife of Gordon Getty (who is the son of multi-billionaire J Paul Getty) arranged for Arinna to meet oil millionare and Bush "protege" Michael Huffington in 1985 and paid for their wedding in 1986. Arianna then became a "conservative" and spouted their Republican PR until the late 1990's when she divorced Michael for his homosexual ways and reverted back to being a left wing "liberal".

She wants to throw her support behind Obama because she knows he's the one who's going to win and she wants to be perceived as a supporter after the election is over and they start passing out the gravy.

LIke all Illuminati gofers, she throws her support behind the stonger Illuminati faction, which is clearly the Obama/Bryzinski/Clinton/Albright/ group at this moment in time.

Whenever considering the sincerity of any of our nationally known female "commentators", "reporters', "journalists", "writers', "authors", "TV political pundits", etc, etc, etc, such as Huffington, FIRST look at their family background. Cokie Roberts, Maria Schreiver, Andrea Mitchell, etc. come from families of political influence, power, and wealth. That's why Maria goes from NBC host/reporter/journalist/ etc. to become the wife of Arnold Swartzenegger; while Andrea goes from big name NBC news "reporter" to become the wife of Alan Greenspan.

They really do like to keep it "all in the family"..

Regards, Ken
