Trump's Cult 45 vs Obama's Cult of Personality

Trump supporters have gone from "deplorables" to cult followers.  At least that's what cult/mind control expert Steven Hassan seems to think. He even wrote a book about his theory- "The Cult of Trump."  So do journalists like CNN's Brian Stelter who cited several others who believe that we Trump supporters have joined the Cult of 45. Just google and you'll find a slew of commentary (from both left and the never-Trump right) surmising that the enthusiastic support for a man who has been vilified from before he took office amounts to brainwashed, cult-like behavior.

People have conveniently forgotten- or were never aware of the fact, to begin with- that the man who truly developed a cult of personality was Trump's predecessor Barack Obama. Some saw through the thin veneer of a charismatic politician with no substance, but not many.

In 2008, journalist Lisa Lerer wrote about "Obamamania verging on obsession" in a Politico article.
"He walks into a room and you want to follow him somewhere, anywhere," George Clooney told talk show host Charlie Rose.
"I'll do whatever he says to do," actress Halle Berry said to the Philadelphia Daily News. "I'll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear."

Welcome to the cult of Barack Obama.
Over the years, there were many who actually likened him to Jesus Christ. At the Soul Train Awards in 2012, actor Jamie Foxx introduced Barack Obama as "our Lord, and Savior..." The Rev Al Sharpton on the Tom Joyner Radio Show in 2014 compared him to Jesus Christ.

Even a Danish editorial from Politiken in 2009 opined: "Obama greater than Jesus- The U.S. President- the practical savior of our time". You can't read the whole article unless you dish over 1 Kroner, which I did not.

There's also a blog from back in the Obama days called ObamaMessiah with links to many articles worshipping the man.

Barbara A. Thompson wrote a book titled "The Gospel According to the Apostle Barack". For sale on Amazon, it has an 88% 1 Star rating. 6% 5 Star. The book apparently compares Obama to Jesus. Thompson happens to be a university professor in the Agriculture Department at Florida A & M.

New York contemporary artist Michael D'Antuono depicted Obama as a crucified Christ in this portrait he painted in 2009 titled "The Truth" although he has stated he was not comparing the two.

Obama was idolized far more than Trump by celebrities, media, and ordinary folk. Remember when MSNBC's Chris "tingles" Matthews felt "this thrill" running up his leg when Obama spoke in 2017? And then he shared this:
“I’ve been following politics since I was about 5,” said Mr. Matthews. “I’ve never seen anything like this. This is bigger than Kennedy. [Obama] comes along, and he seems to have the answers. This is the New Testament. This is surprising.”
The New Testament?

Obama with halo effect

In early 2008, was inspired to write a song- "Yes We Can"- using the words of Barack Obama's "concession" speech. I'm not sure who he was conceding to, or if just misspoke, but you can cringe watch it on YouTube.

It also features John Legend and other celebrities including Nicole Scherzinger, Scarlett Johansson, and several others that I don't recognize.

And get a load of this flag with Obama's face flapping in the wind at the Lake County Florida Democratic Headquarters for several months in 2012 until some local veterans complained and it was eventually removed.

Then there were all those creepy indoctrinated kids singing Obama's praises.

And his Youth Brigade.

And anti-Trumpers talk about his narcissism, but remember when Obama was selling his special limited edition U.S. flag with his logo in place of the stars and stripes for $35.00?
Speaking of narcissism, dating back to Franklin D Roosevelt every former president has built a presidential Library to house donated collections of historical papers and memorabilia (both public and private) from their time in office. Although the libraries themselves are funded by the individual the facility is run by the federal government's National Archives. But Obama isn't building a library, no, he's building a Center because a library would probably be too pedestrian for the likes of a narcissist. According to the Washington Examiner Obama's future facility allegedly will not be like all the others:
There will be no books, no presidential papers or documents, nor printed matter of any kind related to the Obama presidency, except for, presumably, what’s on sale at the gift shop.
There will be no cables, no memoranda or manuscripts, no official records of the presidency it’s designed to celebrate. The Barack Obama Presidential Center will not be a historical archive, scholarly resource, or even museum, so much as a vast, 33-acre monument to Obama, spread over multiple structures and a manicured landscape.
Not sure if that's quite accurate, but if you want to see what Obama is focusing on, check out the list of artifacts they're asking the public to donate to the museum. It includes materials starting with his formative years.
Our goal for the Museum collection is to preserve and activate a rich and multifaceted record of President and Mrs. Obama’s lives and legacy in order to share the lessons of history and to help inspire, connect, and empower people to change their world.

We need your help to ensure a diverse range of stories and perspectives are represented through the artifacts we collect.

Your material does not need to be one-of-a-kind or of high monetary value for it to have historical significance. We are interested in materials that tell the stories of the communities and individuals that helped to shape or were impacted by the Obamas’ unique journey and time in the White House.
So this isn't just a monument to commemorate his time as president, this is a vanity project to pay homage to his whole darn life. If that isn't the definition of narcissism, I don't know what is.

However, not everyone was thrilled about having his private center built on public land in Chicago South Side's Jackson Park. In fact, there was a lawsuit filed claiming a bait and switch, and likening it to an "illegal land grab."
A federal lawsuit filed by a Chicago nonprofit in an attempt to block the Obama Presidential Center from being built in Jackson Park accuses organizers of pulling an "institutional bait and switch" by shifting the center's purpose away from being a true presidential library.

Protect Our Parks Inc. also claims in its lawsuit, which was filed in U.S. District Court on Monday, that the Chicago Park District and the City of Chicago don't have the authority to transfer public parkland to nongovernmental entity such as the Obama Foundation.
The plaintiffs accuse the Obamas of committing an about-face on original plans for the Jackson Park site to be home to a national presidential library that would hold historic documents and archives from Barack Obama's presidency under the National Archives and Records Administration's supervision.

But the Obamas prevailed.

There is a major difference between Trump supporters and Obama sycophants. Yeah, there are those who revere Trump like the vast majority of Democrats revered Obama without conditions, but the rest of us support him in spite of his faults. We support him warts and all because this country is thriving like it hasn't done for years, and because we are fully aware of how the devious Democratic Party in tandem with the complicit media has been trying from day one to get rid of him. We have witnessed how Hollywood elites along with the #resist movement Twitterati have vilified and called for his resignation and impeachment from before he took office. We are cognizant of the fact that the majority of Social Media Platforms and tech companies have targeted his base simply because we support him.

Adam Schiff's Horror Movie Alter Egos

There's something terribly off about Adam Schiff.  Apart from being a despicable little man who has clear signs of being a sociopathic liar:
Creating elaborate lies for their own gain with no care about who gets hurt is a hallmark of sociopathic lying. Sociopaths are compulsive pathological liars.

Sociopaths lie without conscience.

That means that they can look you right in the eye and lie to you and not show the usual markers that would give them away.

It also means that they don’t care about collateral damage.

They get their mind set on a goal and they will make up whatever they need to in their attempts to achieve their goal. It doesn’t matter what the consequences are to others as a result of their lies. It doesn’t matter if other adults get hurt and it doesn’t matter if children get hurt. It doesn't even matter if their own children get hurt.                       
Ann Silvers "How To Spot A Sociopathic Liar
He did get 4 Pinocchios from the uber-liberal, Trump-hating Washington Post for lying about his first-hand knowledge regarding the Ukraine Whistle-Blower complaint.  (I'm still convinced the Whistleblower is Schiff himself.)  But that's not why I'm writing this post. It's just that there's also something incredibly creepy about the man. You know, otherworldly creepy. Maybe it's those eyes.

Adam Schiff starring in the "Great Impeachment Sham Show"

Or his monotone vocal quality. And I started thinking about how alienesque he seems and how he'd be perfectly cast in a film along the lines of the horrifically scary Sci-Fi film "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" starring Donald Sutherland where aliens are duplicating humans and then killing them.

1. Invasion of the Body Snatchers

But he'd also make a great serial killer ala Hannibal Lector in "The Silence of the Lambs" played by the incredible Anthony Hopkins.

2.  The Silence of the Lambs

Then there's Carrie in the horror flick by the same name, starring a young Sissy Spacek. Yeah, it's a woman, but those eyes.

3. Carrie

Last but not least, writer-turned-killer Jack Torrance, played by Jack Nicholson in "The Shining."

4. The Shining
So, which part is Schiff a perfect fit for?

Pelosi and the Democratic Party of Hate- Yes you do hate Trump, Nancy!

After announcing that the Democratic majority Congress will begin drafting articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi was asked by reporter James Rosen if she hated the President.  The Sinclair TV network journalist obviously hit a major nerve because the botox queen launched into a hissy fit of denial.
“I don’t hate anybody!" “I was raised in a Catholic house! We don’t hate anybody. Don’t accuse me of hate!”
The meltdown continued with a non sequitur stuttering diatribe where she accused Trump of being a "coward."
“I think this President is a coward when it comes to helping our kids who are afraid of gun violence. I think he is cruel when he doesn’t deal with helping our Dreamers, of which we are very proud. I think he is in denial about the climate crisis.” 
“However, that’s about the election. This is about the Constitution of the United States and the facts that lead to the President’s violation of his oath of office.”
And then ended with:
“And as a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I pray for the President all the time. So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”

Sure, Nancy, we all know what you, Adam Schiff, and the rest of the Democratic Party anti-Trump folk (in tandem with the Republican never-Trumpers) are praying for and have been praying for ever since Trump won the Republican nomination back in July 2016.

We're not stupid, Madam Speaker.  We are very aware of the rabid hatred that you, your fellow party hacks and supporters have been displaying over the past three unbearable years. The loathing is palpable.  YOU and your fellow Democratic members of Congress and Senate have fomented that antipathy through your actions and your vitriol. You have pitted the American people against each other and divided this nation irreparably all because of your hatred of ONE man and your blatant refusal to accept the fact that he won the presidency.

For three years Democrats have attempted to get rid of a duly elected President, not because he's done anything wrong- this country is doing better than it has in many years- but because they flat out hate him and fear he'll get re-elected in 2020. They never gave Trump a chance. Calls for impeachment started soon after his inauguration in early 2017 and have continued through today. Here's a list of 98 things Democrats hoped would lead to impeachment, starting with Joaquin Castro.
 On Feb. 1, 2017, mere days after the Trump’s inauguration, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) said the House should consider impeaching the president in the event he doesn’t abide by court orders related to his travel ban.
The haters have done their level best to come up with something that would stick, something that would force him to resign, and have failed at most every attempt including Russian collusion.

It's not just Trump that the Democrats are targeting with their poisonous hate, it's anyone who supports him regardless of race. Their intolerance has become insufferable. They've turned everyone who supports Trump, regardless of their level of support, into pariahs. We've been vilified, attacked physically and verbally, threatened, called names. We've been called a basket of deplorables, racists, Nazis, Putin-lovers. Debra Messing from "Will and Grace" fame called for people to publicly out Trump supporters hearkening back to McCarthy era days.

In November 2018, Breitbart put together a massive list of "Acts of Media Approved Violence Against Trump supporters." There have been plenty more in the year since that was published. There's even a website dedicated to attacks on Trump supporters including a list of the fake hoax hate crimes blamed on Trump supporters, but it's in no way comprehensive.

If you're at all active on Social Media- Facebook and Twitter- you'll experience that hostility first hand. I've seen it. It's incredibly vicious and nasty. And it's only going to get worse.

The Democrats have fully embraced the dark side. All that hate has shut down their ability to think clearly, so seeing the proverbial light will be well nigh impossible.  It's going to be a very rough and bumpy road to election 2020.

In case you want to see Pelosi's meltdown.

Tulsi Gabbard Is NOT A Friend of Conservatives

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend" comes from an ancient Sanskrit proverb that suggests enemies can come together to fight against a common enemy. We've seen this occur most notably during WW11 when Germany betrayed the Soviet Union's pact with the Nazis to divvy up the land between their borders. The Soviets in tandem with the U.S and Britain were instrumental in defeating the Nazis.

It happens quite often when it comes to foreign policy, but the enemy of my enemy is not always our friend- take Tulsi Gabbard. Kudos to her for giving Kamala Harris a pummeling during the 2nd Democratic Debate when she called Kamala out on her abysmal record during her tenure as California Attorney General.

"She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations, and then laughed about it when she was asked if she’d ever smoked marijuana. She blocked evidence that would have freed a man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California. And she fought to keep cash bail system in place that impacts poor people in the worst kind of way."


And more kudos for giving Hillary Clinton a monumental smackdown in response to HC insinuating Tulsi is a "Russian asset" during a podcast interview with Campaign HQ's David Plouffe.

Hillary Clinton called Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard "the favourite of the Russians" in a recent interview while describing 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein as "a Russian asset."

During a podcast appearance this week on Campaign HQ with David Plouffe, the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee did not mention the Hawaii congresswoman by name, but said she believes the Russians have "got their eye on somebody who's currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate." 
"She's the favourite of the Russians," Clinton said.

"They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And that's assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she's also a Russian asset."

The Russians know they can't win without a third-party candidate, Clinton added.
Tulsi responded on Twitter with the following:
The rest of her Tweet:
 concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why.
"Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
"It's now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don't cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly."
Boom. Again.

And she's not the only one who believes Hillary has her eyes set on a third presidential run in 2020. There has been speculation from others including ex-aide Mark Penn who said as much back in November 2018. I certainly wouldn't be surprised, considering Clinton's power-hungry lifetime goal has always been to sit in the Oval Office. And it makes total sense calling Tulsi a favorite of the Russians. It's straight out of her playbook. After all, Clinton was the catalyst for the whole Russia/Trump collusion fiasco we've lived with for three unbearable years, and the subsequent rush by Democrats and their leftist supporters to call anyone they disagree with a Russian Bot or any variation thereof. So while I can understand why conservatives would come out in support of Tulsi after the Hillary hit- being called a Russian bot/asset or whatnot is irksome as hell- please remember Tulsi is NOT our friend. In many ways, she's as left as the rest of the Democratic presidential hopefuls.

If you haven't done your research I'll help you out a little. But here's her website for more in-depth information on all the issues, including teaming up with Bernie Sanders to raise the minimum wage, gun control, etc.

MEDICARE FOR ALL:  She's a co-sponsor of H.R.1384 - Medicare for All Act of 2019, which would provide universal health care to all Americans. Plus she's on the Medicare for All Caucus.

CLIMATE CHANGE: " Tulsi is a top leader in fighting for urgent action to address climate change." "I support the carbon neutrality goals of the Green New Deal and the awareness it has brought across the country on the critical issues of energy independence and the climate crisis.."

ABORTION RIGHTS:  She supports the right to choose.

And if that's not enough the website Progressive Army talks about just how progressive Tulsi is.

There might be some issues like her non-interventionist foreign policy stance that many conservatives might embrace, but other than that, she's not even a centrist.

Black Rapper Bryson Gray aka B.Surius Creates Rap #MAGAchallenge on Twitter

You might have noticed the #MagaChallenge floating around your Twitter feed recently. It's a series of random videos by mostly "people of color" rapping about their support for Donald Trump, MAGA, and their contempt for the Democratic party that has shamefully kept them in chains for decades.

It all started with Bryson Gray whose Twitter handle is @SuriusVsVodka. Gray aka B.Surius and KingVodka is a conservative black rapper from North Carolina who decided to throw out a challenge to all MAGA (Make America Great Again) Trump supporters to come up with their own versions of his rap song "MAGA Boy."

With the onset of the #Blexit and #BlackNotDemocrat movement, we've seen a slew of blacks and Latinos leaving the Democratic Party. Not surprisingly, the Democrats have not taken kindly to the ever-increasing loss of a good chunk of their voter pool, and these new conservatives are now being subjected to the wrath and hatred from the Left that the rest of us have been experiencing since Trump took office. At least those of us who support Trump. Since they can't be called the leftist's favorite word "racist"- though I've actually seen some black conservatives called that- Dems have resorted to hurling racial epithets at them: "Uncle Tom" and far worse. This is touched upon in a powerful song that B.Surius wrote and produced called "Black Not Democrat".

Apparently, Instagram flagged the video claiming it was hate speech. Bryson later mentioned on Twitter that it was reinstated, but I can't seem to find his Instagram account to verify. More conservative censorship.

You can find An0maly, Hotep Withit and G.Notes Justice's versions on Culttture, along with the Instagram notice. And search for #MagaChallenge on Twitter for some of the great raps that people have come up with. It's a thing of beauty.

This whole thing needs to go viral, although that might be a huge challenge in a country where leftists (including the media) shun anyone who doesn't toe the proverbial liberal line, and who loathe Trump so much they have literally spent the past 2 plus years trying to find something- anything- to take him down.

Here's a great one.

And here's one from some white Brits from "across the pond" just for fun.

9/11 2019- Never Ever Forget

Hard to believe it's been 18 years since we were viciously attacked by Islamist terrorists on September 11, 2001. Almost 3,000 people were mercilessly killed on that day, and that's not counting all those first responders and civilians who have since died- and will die in the future- from 9/11 related injuries and diseases from toxins and dust at Ground Zero. That accounts for another 1,400 or so people to date. That's a hell of a lot of people. Murdered in cold blood.

It's estimated around 200 people fell or jumped to their deaths. I cannot even fathom what they must have been going through at the time when they had to make the decision to either jump or burn to death.  Horrifying.

In 2015 published 30 photos from 9/11 as a reminder of why we must never forget September 11.

Funny Parody Video: Bernie Sanders and Other Dems Discussing How To Get Rid of Trump

For a little levity, here's a talking picture video produced by @TheUnitedSpot featuring Democratic Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, along with fellow Socialist congresswomen the daft Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and anti-Semite Ilhan Omar, and the evil Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Rep Maxine Waters and Senate Minority Leader Chuckie Schumer discussing how to take down our duly elected President Donald Trump.

WARNING: Some might find a few words offensive, but it's pretty darn funny.
