The man behind the curtain
By Armand C. Hale

"Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain," so said the great and powerful Wizard of Oz to Dorothy, the Tin Man, Scarecrow, and the Lion. For if they had looked behind the curtain they would have seen the wizard using machines, levers and stuff to sound strong and powerful. The wizard was using his smoke and mirrors to convince the four to listen to him, and to not believe what they saw.

The tyrant-in-chief is acting just like the Wizard of Oz. Pay no attention to those "phony scandals" and listen to what I am telling you." Phony Scandals....Benghazi, Fast and Furious, NSA Spying, Obama-care, releasing from prison criminal illegal aliens, IRS Targeting of religious groups, unauthorized expansion of IRS power, use of Executive Orders to create laws contrary to the Rule of Law. The list goes on and on. Every one of these "scandals" is a direct affront to our constitution and laws. For all this, it is always someone else's fault. He will not grasp the buck "does" stop at his desk and that he is responsible for the conduct of those under him.

But most of all, the tyrant-in-chief has weakened America both domestically and abroad. Our enemies sense our weakness and hence they look at how to strike. He supports a Muslim Brotherhood revolution, spurns our allies and minimizes the threat of Islamic fundamentalism. We no longer lead the Free-World. We only bow down to our enemies and flip flop on serious world events. We take no action when decisiveness is required so no one really takes us serious any more. We are just a shell of the country we once were before 2009.

The tyrant-in-chief would like you to believe that he knows best for all. You won't look behind the curtain. His spinning of these scandals only reinforces his narcissist nature to have you believe what he says...not what you see. But the citizens are seeing a lot. As his true nature has come out and he consistently cares nothing about what he can do for you, but what you can do for him. Many are wondering how he can be in this office.

He continues to ignore the will of the people as he continues to send money abroad to fund his Muslim home boys. The law states when a specific event occurs, the funding stops. But in direct conflict with the law, he has it under "review." Here in the states, he and his cronies continue to fan the flames of racism in a manner made legal thru his henchman running the DOJ. He verbally and systematically belittles the average citizen who speaks out against him.

With an actual unemployment rate of near 23%, the government continues to bear the heavy load of providing assistance rather than promote jobs. All his policies are anti-job; anti-business. Business hires people. I have never worked for a poor man, have you? His drive to redistribute wealth has only driven our economy further into the ground with not much room for recovery to create a generation of mentalities believing they are "entitled" to government handouts, hence the word "entitlements." You the working taxpayers pay for people not to work. His entourage makes sure he sounds strong and powerful as they work the machines and levers of the propaganda outlet when in reality he is weak and rubbery. Don't look behind the green curtain. For if you do, you will see there is nothing that is strong and powerful, just smoke and mirrors. It's been the norm since 2009.
