HUMPTY DUMPTY REIGNS
By Ed Pointer
August 22, 2014
In my last article I compared Obama to Humpty Dumpty; I’ve been impressed by the parallel between Mr. Dumpty and Mr. Obama. For example Obama is one of the great pontificators of our day if not the greatest. Mr. Dumpty fits that description as well; pontification and making words mean what he wants them to being his primary characteristic.
Franklin D. Roosevelt is the champion of all time, a personage able in the 1930’s to move our country away from our Constitution and to the left with such spirited ease many in our populace were blind to his effort in establishing corporatist and socialism’s beginnings in the United States—whether Mr. Obama can equal that is yet to be determined, though he is well on the road to exceeding FDR’s achievement.
Roosevelt was quite an egg himself, a great Humpty Dumpty—Dumpty in fact was not always described as an egg and in his beginnings no mention was made of his being an egg; that came later—I’m uncertain as to when.
The name “Humpty Dumpty” has come to mean one who is enamored with his own point of view and thus in a precarious position, (like the American people). We are in fact, due to the last four presidencies including Mr. Obama’s leadership, facing nationally our own fall from the wall and, were it not for those of the left constantly shoring up Obama’s precarious seat through the irresponsible Propaganda Press and politically inspired cover-ups, Obama should have already tumbled but, like Dumpty he’s currently leading a charmed life; if he does fall from the wall it will be a very great crash indeed.
Obama’s naivety born of his Marxist roots is typified by his desire to help the have-nots, which can be described as redistribution or take from the rich and give to the poor, the Robin Hood thing, although the robber of Sherwood Forest is Obama taking from the middle class to give to the rich while giving lip service to the poor. This inequality however does not diminish our citizen’s desire to help the poor, neither is it a criticism of the rich or poor; I do have to wonder if Mr. Obama has a personal budget category from which he distributes a portion of his wealth to the poor.
Obama, as a prominent member of the party accomplished at winning votes by promising to lift up the poor, downtrodden, and illegal immigrants, that same group of extremists insist we must be forced—according to their standards—to dig into our pockets as a government-guided group in whatever cause they determine to be in their best interests, i.e. whatever will get them more votes. These political extremists are allowing illegal immigration in order to add votes to increase their control of our nation and its people. It is confounding why the Republicans will not oppose such excesses and, since they don’t, any thinking person must conclude they’ve become an equal partner in the leftist revolution.
The lengths to which Obama and these termites will go to destroy our nation is expressed by Eliseo Medina, a VP of SEIU and Honorary Chair of the Democratic Socialists of America, who have taken over the Democrat Party, had this to say: “If we reform the immigration laws, it puts 12 million people on the path to citizenship and eventually voters. Can you imagine if we have …even two out of three, if we get 8 million new voters… we will create a governing coalition for the long term, not just for an election cycle”
Obama’s Dumpty immigration policies are destructive and he’s determined they will be put in place. Since the House won’t act on his plan he “has a pen” and will write an executive order that does it his way. According to the New York Times:
Mr. Obama’s increasingly expansive appetite for the use of unilateral action on issues including immigration, tax policy and gay rights has emboldened activists and businesses to flock to the administration with their policy wish lists. It also has opened the president, already facing charges of executive overreach, to criticism that he is presiding over opaque policy-making, with the potential to reward political backers at the expense of other interests, including some on the losing side who are threatening to sue.
The go-it-alone approach has left the administration — which claims to be the most transparent in United States history — essentially making policy from the White House, replacing congressional hearings and floor debates with closed meetings for invited constituencies.
In another area of Obama weakness David Horowitz observes in referring to Obama’s support of Islam: “Where is the Republican opposition? Why are Republicans still treating Obama as though his were a normal presidency and not a national disgrace? Why are there no indictments of Obama for the carnage he has enabled?”
Most everyone representing us in DC are Dumpty’s and Obama is at the top of the list. For example we’ve read or seen on TV very little in the Propaganda Press regarding the Benghazi investigation directed by Trey Gowdy in whom many of us following current political events had great expectations. It’s a shame however Committee Chair, Republican Mike Rogers, Rep. from the socialist state of Michigan, has managed the investigation so Obama and Hillary come out unscathed. In this process Rogers has eviscerated any direction in the investigation Gowdy wanted to pursue and the real “Teflon President” will not be held accountable (Reagan, the original Teflon President was a rank amateur by comparison). The Democrat and RINO socialist left, with the help of its press, appears to cover its puppets with a particularly slick brand of snake oil so nothing sticks to them.
“The problems with Rogers when it comes to Benghazi have been extensively documented at Shoebat.com to include conflicts of interest involving the Intelligence Committee’s former chief investigator, former Deputy CIA Director Mike Morell and several Hillary Clinton allies. Shoebat.com has also reported on another conflict involving Rogers’ wife Kristi Rogers and her position with a British-based defense services outfit named Aegis Defense Services that began doing business in Libya in early 2011. Mrs. Rogers quietly resigned from her position as vice chairman of Aegis’ board of directors three months after the Benghazi attacks.
Last year, Chairman Rogers conceded to Megyn Kelly that Ambassador Chris Stevens visited with his Committee in the days before his murder. The American people deserve to know what that meeting was about. The Committee report signed off by Rogers necessarily seeks to suppress that as well.”
What is hard to understand is how we the people could have allowed our country to fall so terribly—the only explanation making any sense is simply that we are the most uninformed and partisan people in this hemisphere; for example, when it comes to our responsibility as citizens the vast majority of us don’t even know we’re a Republic or even what a Republic is; most think our nation a Democracy and few know the difference between the two. Far worse is our lack of interest in our Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, and Constitution. The key to our understanding these fantastic papers is another forgotten document, the Federalist Papers—and it’s a cryin’ shame more of us aren’t reading them.
It’s Humpty Dumpty all over again and we the people are not without blame, mostly because there are so many obligations and duties pulling on us continually—that would include TV, iPhones, iPads, Twitter, Facebook, etc which appear to have replaced real knowledge; rarely do we have time to discover the truth; it’s easier to accept whatever we’re told because the time it takes to research facts is not easy to come by.
I received an email today demonstrating how really uninformed some of us are. In a letter to the Op-Ed page of a California newspaper someone wrote, “To all you hunters who kill animals for food, shame on you; you ought to go to the store and buy the meat that was made there, where no animals were harmed.” A note accompanying the email reads: “Does this explain in part how Obama got elected?” Perhaps, but it seems extreme even for the uninformed.
Americans are gullible and many of us believe the promises of our political Humpty Dumpty’s. Exemplary are those who voted for Mr. Obama—they will be remembered as the most gullible in our nation’s history. Virtually everything Obama promised during and after his campaign he apparently never intended to keep, defining words as he intends them to be, generally doing just the opposite of what he promised.
Obama’s polished political falsehoods are rarely mentioned by our “don’t mention it” press—they just don’t report the negatives of our leftist president (though lately they seem to be more alert than usual). Even in the face of obvious Obama blunders they refuse to mention them and will defend him to the utmost. As an example of such denial Geraldo Rivera, appearing on a Fox News panel gave verbal support to the uniformity of the “don’t confuse me with facts” press when he defended Hamas against Israel. As Geraldo so aptly demonstrated in the video, if arguments presented by the left are weak then out-talk and shout down the opposition until it can’t be heard over the yelling and has to quit talking.
I realize there are two sides to most stories and not everyone agrees with Israel in their destruction of Hamas missile launch sites and tunnels because those strikes resulted in civilian deaths but, as General Sherman is reported to have said, “War is hell” and knowing that, how can any nation avoid killing in a war zone?
The United States continues to suffer a similar difficulty with its open borders policy. Illegal immigration is being allowed freely across our borders, justified as “humanitarian” due to the number of “children” coming across. The left refuses any criticism against the invasion since any who oppose the leftist immigration propagandists are considered to be inhumane, another Humpty Dumpty conclusion.
For our own safety we either close the borders for a time or resist the invaders by force of arms. The pansies of both parties controlling our government don’t have the fortitude to defend our own people; or they intend to destroy our nation by an invasion of immigrants. Meanwhile we are misdirected as our press and government continues to yell at Israel to quit—these naïvely destructive termites apparently seek Israel’s obliteration by the blood-thirsty devils of Hamas.
In a recent interview with Tom Friedman of the New York Times Obama accused the Republicans of blocking his agenda: “We need to reform our immigration system. That would be good not just for our domestic economy but for our position in the world…We’re doing things that are pretty sensible. I’m optimistic that these things go in cycles, and that the Republican Party will eventually free itself from the grip of this kind of extremist ideology. But it’s necessary to happen soon.” [Emphasis added]
Talk about extremist ideology—that’s transferring Obama’s extremist ideology to the few honest Republicans left in Congress. Obama’s rejection of his oath of office and the rule of law include his excessive promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood, placing many of them in positions of responsibility within our government, that’s extreme! The socialist Republicans under John Boehner’s leadership, continue affirming Obama and are just as ignoble since they don’t oppose the Socialist Democrats, they pathetically sue the president instead of using House of Representatives control of the nation’s purse strings; they should, instead, defund Obama’s excessively destructive programs.
The Humpty Dumpty’s of the world in their “Newspeak” language and fragile states of mind are gathering together to turn logic and self preservation on its head, their deeply embedded foolishness holding a place of honor in the seat of their pants. So—let’s start cracking some eggs.

Obama and Humpty Dumpty
2. Dr. William Wirt attempted to expose the Marxist influence in the United States government under FDR’s “New Deal;” Wirt’s reputation was destroyed by leftist change agents in both the press and what was then the Democrat party. As a result he became a laughingstock of that day. See Diana West’s book, American Betrayal: the Secret Assault on our Nation’s Character.
3. Quoted in Devvy's article and see page 112 of Chapter 9 at this link.
4. Destroying the border and endangering americans to achieve a political majority.
5. Julie Hirschfield Davis.
6. David Horowitz - Obama's Treachery and Republican silence
7. House Intelligence Committee Caught covering Benghazi Truths
8. Bob Livingston writes about the word democracy: “The truth and purpose of this word is for a cover and disguise for fascism and socialism. This word is the workhorse of the American propaganda ministry. Every person is taught this word; from politicians to school children. Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “[words] mean just what I choose [them] to mean—neither more nor less."
9. Outrageous Lies Barack Obama
11. William Tecumseh Sherman, famous northern general and tactician in the Civil War. Of note was his victory at the battle of Shiloh and other strategies during that war. His scorched earth policy in what was called his “March to the Sea” was brutal—it’s difficult to label him a hero considering his brutalizing of the South. He certainly knew “War is Hell”—he was an accomplished practitioner.
12. This can be traced to G.W. Bush’s signing of the open borders and trade agreement between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico in March of 2005 without Congressional approval or knowledge of the people. That illegal treaty, then known as the NAU or North American Union, is being advanced by Obama and John Kerry
13. An interesting quote by an expert Dumpty; Obama—who has a pen—is accusing the GOP of doing the same thing he’s done since he took office. His revolutionary leftist programs aren’t quickly moving forward so it’s the Republican’s fault—they’re a convenient scapegoat for his failures and certainly not guiltless in Obama’s plans.
14. Horowitz also notes: “By his feckless interventions in the Middle East, and his tacit support for the chief organization of Islam’s terror war against the West, Obama has set the Middle East on fire. All the violence in the crescent from Gaza to Iraq, including Hamas’s genocidal war against Israel, has been encouraged by Obama’s support for the [Muslim] Brotherhood and hostility toward the Jewish state.”
15. Considering the left’s penchant for exaggeration and its “sky is falling” tactics, and in order to avoid false accusations I define ‘cracking eggs’ as legally seeking representatives, senators, and a president to replace those currently sitting on the wall.
