Rainwater and Sewage

obama shitby Glenn Fairman  7/13/14
The nature of Schadenfreude can be manifested in many interesting and perverse forms. I must admit that savoring the long-awaited comeuppance of an American regime, albeit a Progressive one that has breached its constitutional limits and grasped at powers that the Founders had judiciously restrained from its clutches by force of law, carries with it a certain unwholesome satisfaction – like a man who cheers for the destruction of a cherished house that has been ripped away from him and appropriated for unholy purposes. The righteous demand for justice, embedded like iron in the marrow of our bones, is invigorated when we witness either a man or a political ideology finally getting its just desert – even if we should ourselves suffer mightily in the process. Anyone who has partaken of Solshenitsyn’s “Archipelago’” understands this sentiment intimately. The careful reader recalls how, while toiling in the permafrost as a zek bricklayer, he prayed that the West would exact their nuclear vengeance on that ungodly slave system of the East — cauterizing its wickedness forever. Alas, the USSR’s fall would be generations hence before even a muted justice would be accorded its suffering millions, and in a way wholly unexpected. And if we complain that our prayers are answered in such meager provisional fashion, then maybe it is because our vision itself is negligible. For ultimately, the arc of justice exceeds the perception of the human horizon, to a place where mortal mind and eye cannot now venture.[pullquote]The righteous demand for justice, embedded like iron in the marrow of our bones, is invigorated when we witness either a man or a political ideology finally getting its just desert…[/pullquote]

However, sometimes justice is afforded in the near term, and the irresistible judgments of some natural law will not be denied. Indeed, often the maxim “when it rains, it pours” alights upon evil and vacuous men whose clotted vision results from treacherous and tyrannical intent. On this very day, the blackened clouds that follow Barack Obama are clearly cosmic recompense for the political hubris that comes when you believe that you are an unbreakable Teflon-coated figure of destiny. Even if one possesses an infinite supply of unquenchable pride or that character of lawless villainy that answers to no authority save one’s own darkened reason, no flesh can withstand for long the sanctions of God or Man when he has deviated beyond his appointed boundary. To be sure, history is littered with those who deemed themselves either blessed, fated, or even “The One” who would fulfill the charge of completing Nimrod’s Tower. Believing that they had within themselves the capacity to transform civilization or society by force of will alloyed with the Luciferian dream, these men only succeeded in setting themselves and their legacies aflame – and in the process, shattering their Great Political Houses and orphaning those who shared that foolish veneration for shooting stars that ended up irrevocably as broken and smoldering idols — feet of excrement mixed with common clay.

Watching the “Great Transformer” twist in the wind is as surrealistic as a Monty Python skit. And still, like Pharaoh, he will not relent nor repent of the destruction he has wrought. A recent photo featured two marines holding umbrellas that provided “cover” from a few drops of rain — all while the dullard clumsily fielded questions. This picture is duly ironic, since Obama despises the spirit of our military except as a means to project that malevolent will and ensure America’s decline into a nation indistinguishable from Venezuela or Cuba. And indeed, has he not defecated upon every traditional virtue that America owns that has made her great and noble? As a strange trick of history, it is the military that has helped cover his nakedness from the willingly blind—even as he has allowed brave men in our armed services to perish for the purpose of his own “political cover.” Is hamstringing the American military at the crossroads of the most dangerous epoch of human history — all while demanding that it do more and more to quell the volcano he has deliberately stoked, truly the policy of a prudent statesman, or is it the curious stratagem of a lunatic juggling chain saws on a tightrope?

Rain is falling on Obama – and it is likely to continue doing so for the foreseeable future as the blood from Benghazi cries out from the earth along with the metastasizing cancer of IRS malfeasance that threatens to blow the hull from the U.S.S. Hope ‘n Change. How longingly we have waited to see its putrid hulk flounder dead in the water as a tsunami of continuing scandals and crimes, that can no longer be ignored, threatens to send it down deep into history’s watery abyss. And if we must suffer in the short term in order to bring a nation of vagabonds, vampires, and leeches to their collective senses – then so be it.

Rain is cleansing and invigorating: but until recently, the cleansing action of water has slipped off Obama and Company like off a duck’s back. Nevertheless, even as we breathe, his Marxian “fellow travelers” and those supporting catamites from our Fourth Estate (who have been morally complicit in his calumnies) are diving head first off this scandal ridden ship and distancing themselves from the most incompetent, most morally compromised, and most Anti-American administration that America has ever had the dishonor of enduring since our singular Founding. As these Media vermin vomit up their Kool-Aid for raw oxygen, they are likely to get angrier: first, for being made to look like suckers; and second, for having seen their Temple Egalitaria being renovated into not a City on the Hill, but into a Sodomite brothel. It is not a comely sight when “True Believers” devour their own in an ideological bloodletting, once they realize the liberalism’s august textbook veneer houses a haunt of lice and spiders that feed upon the flesh of Western Civilization with gusto.

We can only pray that the rain does not abate until it unearths every hidden nauseating secret that has been buried in its shallow grave in that gilded monstrosity we know as the District of Columbia. We only wish the chance to be able to vehemently spit upon those who thought us rubes and yokels for holding fast to our Constitution, as the rain reaches its crescendo and the flood waters break their banks — washing the entire stinking cesspool down the Potomac, and into the sea.

    Yes, the problem is that the justice so badly needed for the Obama Gang will come at a high price for America. Still, it’s my hope that Obama will end up the most hated man in America, wishing every day that Romney had won in 2012. That’s not full justice, which would involve a life sentence in the harshest federal prison (or maybe even someone living up to the motto of my birth state of Virginia), but it would at least be something (especially for such a narcissist). Especially appropriate would be following him with the explicit repeal of all his misdeeds. Only then can the damage he has willfully done begin to be healed.

    “We only wish the chance to be able to vehemently spit upon those who thought us rubes and yokels…”

    At the very least.

  3. Rosalys says:

    This is a great article. But, man o’ man, the accompanying picture is priceless! It reminds me of a definition of political correctness I heard recently;
    “A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

    • Timothy Lane says:

      Lovely imagery. And very accurate.

    • Glenn Fairman says:

      American Thinker accepted the piece, scheduled for Tuesday, but somehow JR rejected the image………go figure

      • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

        I either have lower or higher standards. I haven’t figured out which yet. But, Glenn, you have the right to post damn near anything you want. I can’t see myself editing you beyond merely typos and that sort of thing.

        Outrage against this America-hating Marxist is the healthy orientation. We should never by degrees become acclimated to this level of evil and corruption. Turds work for me. Just be sure to grab them by the clean end.

        • Glenn Fairman says:

          I have been warned never to write in anger. But this advice is akin to never spanking your children in anger—it seems, after all, the perfect time to get a disagreeable job done. As for the image, it reflected my mood at the time and still does. Submitting it to AT was an experiment in how far I could stretch their editorial patience. They did not disappoint.

          • Timothy Lane says:

            Much my depend on what exactly one means by “anger” as opposed to, say, “outrage”. After Janet Reno kidnapped Elian Gonzalez in 2000 (with the support of Eric Holder, who takes a different view today on alien children, at least when his good friend Fidel isn’t demanding them back), I waited several days before starting my FOSFAX article on it (which I titled “Nacht und Nebel in Miami”), so that I wouldn’t write it while in a white-hot rage. But I remained (and remain) outraged by the event. (I also did a parody in which Oliver Stone used the participants in the case for a movie about the June 30, 1934 Nazi purge, with Slick Willie as Hermann Goering, Slick Hilly as Heinrich Mueller, and Fidel hoped for as Adolf Hitler.)

            • Glenn Fairman says:

              The world cries out for the deeds of men set into motion by righteous anger. Instead, we have the milquetoast “concern” that is the lukewarm middle term between apathy and white hot passion — as if moderation in our war with evil were some terrestrial virtue. I write best when pulsating indignation flows through my veins. I have learned to trust my instincts as a Watchman on the wall.

      • Rosalys says:

        I used to comment at AT. Often I would end with “Keep yer powder dry!” I was contacted by a gatekeeper telling me not to do so as (exact phrasing is long forgotten but in essence) it was incendiary and they they didn’t want any trouble from Them. So as the site is not my personal property I obeyed the rules and ceased. I would sometimes be a little snarky as to the person of Obama and liberals in general, but nothing worse than what other frequent commenters were posting, but I would often find my comments deleted and eventually none of my comments ever made it. No body told me I was banned, I just was. There are a lot of good people posting at AT, but there have been a few questionables; usually they get taken to task by the commenters, so it’s okay!

        Now they use Discus and for a while I was able to comment again, but I also have had trouble with that. I’ve gone through several different user names because of problems logging on – so I just don’t comment there anymore. I do look in sometimes – a Glenn Fairman article posted there led me to this site so I remain grateful to them – but I like this site much better!

        Apparently it’s too impolite to call a thing or show a thing for its true nature. So while the left calls us everything from NAZIs to baby killers we are only able to point out that they don’t place their napkins in their laps before they begin to eat their dinner!

        • Glenn Fairman says:

          I am so happy that you followed me here. So many excellent writers. For the record, the guys over there have given me surprising leeway, but the comments section can be like negotiating the Iroquois gauntlet. Even some of what I felt were innocuous statements I have made have been taken to task. And it was there that I acquired my first full on stalker who set out to destroy me. I have no qualms about fighting fire with napalm. Politics ain’t beanbag and not always does the genteel soul emerge victorious.

          • Timothy Lane says:

            This is something Establishment conservatives never can seem to gather. I’d be perfectly happy to have a truly civil politics — if BOTH sides practiced it. Since the Left never will be civil to us, I treat them as they treat us. “As the scoundrel did, so let him be done by. And that’s just.” One can also think of it as the ideal game theory concept (as in the Prisoner’s Dilemma), “Do unto others as they do unto you.”

          • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

            Nothing tends to tick off people like puncturing their delusions. It’s especially painful to those on the Left to have their sense of victimhood and/or their sense of moral and intellectual superiority buffeted by contrary opinions (and reality itself, of course).

            The ugly underbelly of all the “niceness” of Progressivism is that it is fascist in nature. That is, it breeds a people who think they are a sort of master race. As Jonah Goldberg notes, we may be dealing now with a “soft” fascism instead of a hard one, but that could change.

            As Timothy said, I’m perfectly happy to have a disagreement with someone. But the Left (similar to libertarians) do not tend to have it in them to debate. And debate is quite beside the point. There’s no need to debate if you’ve already decided that you are the superior people. To actually have to deign to debate a conservative would be to treat them as an equal. Such a circumstance would blow their self-image of superiority.

            Leftism, much like Libertarianism, makes you stupid. And stupid people, breast fed on inanities, do not like having their supposed moral and intellectual superiority be exposed for the house of cards that it is.

            One of the images that sticks in my brain when discussing this overall subject is that image on the ceiling of the Sistine chapel of god reaching out to Adam to give him the spark of life. It is said that we are “made in God’s image.” And rather than this being a source of flattery, we should understand it as the burden and challenge that it is.

            That is, unlike the dumb animals, man is burdened with a moral conscience. Unlike a wolf who kills without thought or regret, human beings are gifted/burdened with an apprehension of the moral dimension. We have, or share in, this Divine attribute. And, as we see with the Left, this attribute can be denied, even shat upon. Anything higher than the almighty self (especially including the concept of objective standards that lay outside of one’s ability to self-aggrandize) is a threat to the high-wire egos of those whose sense of self depends not on a measured and balanced humility but on a sense of superiority. As they say, the higher you are, the further you have to fall.

            • Timothy Lane says:

              I’m not sure liberal fascism is really all that soft, no matter what Jonah Goldberg thinks. The Occupiers, the SEIU, ALF, ELF, and others provide plenty of violence to maximize their intimidation of dissenters.

              • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

                No doubt Jonah — if he still remains Jonah in a significant way — would agree. His “soft” fascism meant dying by the death of a thousand mothering regulations rather than, with hard fascism, being lined up against the wall and shot.

                And the things you cite are evidence for this “soft” fascism getting harder.

      The purest rainwater can fall upon the pResident and his minions and it turns instantly into sewage.

  4. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    Nevertheless, even as we breathe, his Marxian “fellow travelers” and those supporting catamites from our Fourth Estate…

    And the libertarians, and the “social justice” Christians, and the Leftist Jews, and those who can’t think past a thought longer than will fit in a text message. I should also include those shallow tribal people who have glorified themselves from head to toe in comic-bookish cinemascopic cartoons, otherwise known as tattoos.

    We’re going down unless we can figure out a reason to be. We see this in the unwillingness of most people to be horrified by the invasion from the south, for example. Self-preservation, as Mark Steyn notes, has left us.

  5. Glenn — excellent as usual. I share your righteous indignation and your longing for justice, as do all decent and conscious people in this country. I am impatient for O’s comeuppance, but I steel myself for the wait — all in God’s good timing. I don’t think he can go down as far as he needs to sans terrible upheaval and likelihood of bloodshed — too many witless, angry people walking around. Meanwhile, we keep writing.

  6. Glenn Fairman says:

    From today’s AT comments board. This is the praise that all writer’s long to hear:

    “Mr. Fairman always gives me the warm-and-fuzzies in the morning with his cheerful, upbeat and optimistic prose. It’s like going to a nice public hanging with a picnic afterward! “

  7. james wilson says:

    Why do we continue to think as if what is happening is a perversion of democracy, when it is in fact the result of it? The elites of the left grasp this and have learned it’s gears and levers while the right is still worshiping the very means of it’s destruction: universal suffrage.

    Eloquence is art, but it changes nothing. Ask Cicero.

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      If by “democracy” you mean the unrefined and unwise knee-jerk stirrings of the morally and civically illiterate, I have to agree with you on that.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      Ideally, some sort of restriction of the franchise to prevent non-taxpayers from deciding, ultimately, how to spend taxpayer money would exist. Of course, even if we could come up with a way to accomplish this, no Democrat would ever agree (and a lot of Republicans would be happy to join them on this). My own view is that the sole advantage of democracy is that — since government basically exists to benefit the electors at the expense of non-electors — this at least spreads the benefits around.

      Winston Churchill said it best: “Democracy is the worst form of government there is, barring all the rest of them.” Humans are highly imperfect, and thus so will their forms of government always be.

  8. Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

    The top comment over there at American Thinker is by Sir Memesalot who says, in part:

    he’s a disgusting fool, but I don’t want him to be impeached just yet, even though he deserves to be. I want him to continue destroying the Left and the media. Everything he does is on their ledger and THEY will give an account for supporting him. How will it end for Obama and the media? I think there’ll be a few more disasters before he’s removed by popular demand.

    That’s the theory whose ever-coming (but never quite getting there) aspect has left the types such as Rush Limbaugh scratching their heads. Surely the latest outrage by this regime will be the catalyst to “throw the bums out.” But so far, this hasn’t happened. In many cases, we’ve just elected new bums with a different set of inherently statist promises. By rights, a tsunami of indignation should wash over and wash out this turd regime. But it hasn’t happened yet and isn’t likely to happen. The electorate itself has become corrupted and expectant of Big Government.

    In reality, we have become that turd. There is no clean end to pick up. It’s as if someone has dumped a gallon of ink into a small pool. The only way to fix it is to drain the pool and replace it with new water.

    Thus, although I think the story of Noah and the flood is but a myth, it makes analogical sense. Sometimes something becomes corrupted in such a way that you simply must start over and do a Hillary-like “reset.”

    I’ll note that although many decry Obama, few want to reform Social Security or the various other entitlements that people (even conservatives) have come to think of as a “right.” Many want to figuratively tar and feather this Marxist clown, but few want to replace this statist paradigm with the one where they, and they alone (primarily), run their lives. No socialized medicine. No government bailouts. No Medicare. No Federal hand-holding and ass-wiping agency for never-ending desires A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.

    I believe there is disgust with the man, as there should be. But I don’t believe that this disgust will catalyze into a return to limited government with a moral people who act more like adults than forever children.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      The basic problems are 2: Most people really don’t want to pay more attention to politics than they absolutely can’t avoid (but still want to have some say in it despite their willful ignorance). And the synoptic media on which they rely for what little information they receive has degenerated into the propaganda corps for the Democratic Party (though they may be getting ready to switch from boosting Slick Barry to boosting Slick Hilly as the former melts down).

    • Nameless Citizen says:

      Here is the deal with Social Security. I was forced to contribute along with my employer. I did not volunteer, I did not join, I was drafted. So, yes, I do feel entitled. If our brilliant Masters had run SS in a responsible manner it would not be a problem now. They didn’t and is a problem. None of this is my fault. Besides, should I now starve so that some Hamas terrorist can shoot missiles at Israel or some Pakistani general steal American foreign aid?

      • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

        You are correct, NC. You have a right to draw out up to 3 or more times what you put into Social Security. And, by the way, it’s not a Ponzi scheme; it was just mismanaged.

        Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. Ignorance of the scheme is no excuse.

    “We can only pray that the rain does not abate until it unearths every hidden nauseating secret that has been buried in its shallow grave in that gilded monstrosity we know as the District of Columbia.”

    Given that there’s now possibly a handful of large commercial planes in the hands of ISIS, it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if a good chunk of D.C. actually becomes a grave of sorts, in oh, maybe about 8 days?

    • Timothy Lane says:

      And not just DC. New York City will definitely be a target, as it was 13 years ago. And so, no doubt, will be some other cities (perhaps Hollywood).
