Do not read further if you can’t handle the truth about Barack Obama. “Truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth.”
“I speak my mind because it hurts to bite my tongue.”
Bite your tongue, Barack Obama!
When President Barack Obama visited Ethiopia last week, he shocked a lot of people by making the following statement:
I don’t bite my tongue too much when it comes to these issues. We are opposed to any group that is promoting the violent overthrow of a government, including the government of Ethiopia, that has been democratically elected. We are very mindful of Ethiopia’s history – the hardships that this country has gone through. It has been relatively recently in which the constitution that was formed and the elections put forward ademocratically elected government.”
The government of Ethiopia has been democratically elected!?!
On May 24, 2015, the “government of Ethiopia” held elektions and declared it had won it by 100 percent. Yes, by one hundred percent.
Even Kim Jong-un’ of North Korea did not have the gall to claim a 100 percent electoral victory in the March 2014 parliamentary election.
At least on paper, Kim Jong-un’s “Worker’s Party of Korea” won only by 88.3 percent (607 of the 687 seats).
The “Korean Socialist Democratic Party” won 50 seats. The “Chondoist Chongu Party” won 22 seats. The “General Association of Korean Residents in Japan” won 5 seats. The “Religious Associations” won 3 seats.
In Ethiopia, there are 79 registered political parties who “actively participated in the election”.
In May 2015, the “People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front” (EPDRF) party (the front organization for the Tigrean Peoples’ Liberation Front [TPLF]) won 547 of the 547 seats in “parliament”.
No candidate from the other 78 political parties even came close to winning a single seat!
On July 26, 2015, Barack Obama stood up in Addis Ababa and declared, “The government of Ethiopia is democratically elected.”
Obama in the Land of Living Lies or Land of 13-Months of Sunshine?
Barack Obama’s visit to the Land of 13-Months of Sunshine Ethiopia reminded me of the magical visit of a little cartoon animation girl called Sandy to the Land of Living Lies.
In the Land of Living Lies, Puff the Magic Dragon, introduces Sandy to such famous fibbers as Pinocchio and the boy who cried wolf.
Sandy: Puff, look!
Puff: That is the famous purple cow that no one has ever seen.
Sandy: And the pink elephant.
Puff: That some see too often. Don’t you think it’s odd that I, a dragon, should eat homework for lunch? Of course it’s odd, for it never happened. It was a falsehood, a canard, a prevarication. Oh, why beat about the bush. It was a simple lie told by a little girl named Sandy.
Sandy: Oh, those are silly lies.
Puff: No, those are fanciful lies. And harmless fantasy OK. And it’s fun, too.
If there ever has been an election won by one party by 100 percent that is democratic, then there is indeed the famous purple cow that nobody has ever seen or the pink elephant that some see often.
But a single political party winning an election by 100 percent is a falsehood, a canard, a prevarication.
Oh, why beat about the bush. It is a simple lie told by the mighty President of the United States called Barack Obama.
Silly lies, fanciful lies, harmless lies told by Barack Obama after he met with Hailemariam Desalegn (Pinocchio) and Tedros Adhanom (the boy who cried wolf).
Stop! Not harmless lies, by any stretch of the imagination.
Barack Obama told dangerous lies that could plunge a nation of 100 million into civil strife and destruction!
Barack Obama is an extraordinarily intelligent guy.
But in the Land of Thirteen Months of Sunshine transformed into the Land of Living Lies, something happened to Barack Obama.
