Attribute to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

I listened to the entire speech that Barack Hussein Obama made in Indiana on Friday, every repulsive word. I listened to that so-far unconvicted criminal fraudster more on that occasion than I ever did when millions of gullible idiots told me he was President, establishing beyond a doubt that my decision back then—not to listen to him—was well-founded. It would have been an utterly obscene waste of my time. Never have I heard more lies trash-compacted into a single presentation. This pathetic creature is a pathological liar who is constitutionally incapable of telling anything even remotely resembling the truth.

It’s impossible to cover each and every lie he told in this short essay, but I can make a few salient observations: first and foremost, Barack Hussein Obama to the contrary notwithstanding, defending the country’s southern (or any) border against foreign invasion is not a political stunt; that is, of course, a lie. It is, in fact, precisely what our military is for—even most libertarians believe that if you wake them up in the middle of the night. And his slimy reference to “our brave troops" ought to catch in his throat and choke him. He never respected our military and he never will. Like his Arkancidal predecessors, he treated them disgracefully and with utter disdain.

Furthermore, the American economy was not beginning to recover under Barack Hussein Obama; that is another lie. Forget little things like miserable growth numbers, high unemployment, and massive food stamp use. What I recall is vividly watching one store shut down after another on the ex-President’s watch, one favorite restaurant after another close its doors, the entire main mall in my home town fall silent and virtually deserted when it lost its anchor stores. I also recall seeing the economy leap suddenly, almost magically, back into life (as if somebody—not Barack Hussein Obama—had waved a wand) and people around me start feeling the hope he fraudulently offered them but never delivered, when Donald Trump simply lowered taxes and started ditching regulations. Roll that into your reefer and smoke it, Barry.

Our current President is not a racist; that, too, is a lie. I heard him when he said, early in his campaign, that Mexico didn’t appear to be sending us its finest representatives among the many illegal immigrants it had failed to stop, but instead, its surplus murderers and rapists. I heard that twisted instantly into an accusation that he’d said all Mexicans are murderers and rapists.

And by the way, since when are the majority of Mexicans not white?

Likewise, Trump never said that the media were the enemies of the people—I heard that, too. He said the fake news media, notably CNN and the New York Times, are the enemies of the people. Agree with him or not, he was misquoted once again—deliberately.

Trump is frequently accused of misogyny, when no President I know of has ever appointed more or better women to serve with him in the highest capacity. Just ask Sarah Sanders. Or Nikki Hailey. Or Heather Nauert. Or Kellyanne Conway. Or Elaine L. Chao.

Trump is also accused of homophobia (a badly-coined propaganda expression that I detest, simply as a student of language: to dislike is not to fear) but is probably the only President ever to knowingly appoint an uncloseted homosexual as the Ambassador to a major European country.

Again, President Trump is automatically accused by the left of racism when he has improved the lot of every non-white person in this country while grandiose leftists like our overly-esteemed ex-President only talked about it for decades, almost amounting to centuries.

And Barack Hussein Obama, the very fountainhead of most of this Alinskyan disinformation, the Prevaricator-in-Chief himself, and the former employer of more fork-tongued distorters of objective reality than I would ever have thought possible, has the zinc-plated pot-metal gall to call Trump a liar.

Last, but far from least, Barack Hussein Obama and his vile orcish minions call President Trump and his loyal supporters “haters”. If that’s the case, then why is it Democrats that field armies of hate like Anti-Fa and By Any Means Necessary? Why do perpetrators on that side—specimens like Maxine Waters and Jim Carrey and Robert de Nero and Rosie O’Donnell—incite violent crimes against peaceful, non-aggressive individuals? In their “defense” they cite a tiny handful (two?) of erratic flakes nominally on our side who may or may not have been Democrat operatives. And they tell lie after lie about the Tea Party demonstrators of 2009 and 2010 who never harmed—or threatened—a fly, and (unlike Occupy Thisorthat) left the areas they used cleaner and tidier than they found them.

Oh, yeah. Before they open their obnoxious, ignorant yaps to whimper that some of the Tea Partiers were (shudder) armed, that happens to be their right, under the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, a right they believed it was important to exercise conspicuously at the time. I agreed with them. So would the Swiss, who sometimes make a public show of being armed and who have not had to fight a war for 400 years.

If I were Barack Hussein Obama, I’d be lying low. His Attorney General, Eric Holder, was directly responsible for the brutal murder of at least one American law enforcement officer at the hands of violent Mexican criminals. The fact that Holder wasn’t ever fired, arrested, tried, or imprisoned for his part in Operation Fast and Furious makes his boss—the Kenyan—an accessory.

He can have the cell next to Hillary.
