Legacy? What Legacy?

By Mario Murillo

At this moment, Obama is drafting his legacy for a farewell speech in Chicago on January 10th.  No president has written a farewell speech that focused entirely on their legacy. Nothing says colossal failure more than this.

The greatest travesty is to say he has a legacy.  For our own sanity as a nation we dare not confuse lunacy and legacy.  You cannot find—with an electron microscope—anything Obama improved after 8 years of holding all the cards.

We must have an autopsy on his presidency or we are doomed to repeat this towering mistake again.

His impending— “I don’t care what anybody says, I did a good job”—tirade in Chicago will be a cringe-worthy act of self- delusion. Far from exalting him, it will cement his status as worst President ever.

How badly did he govern?  Consider what he had going for him: He was swaddled in the thickest layers of spin ever accorded an American President.  Look who protected him!  He had the media in his corner—mainstream journalists outdid each other to lie for him.

He had Hollywood in his pocket—movie stars sacrificed at his altar. Social media giants Facebook, Twitter, Google unambiguously propagandized and censored.  Universities taught Obamanetics.

We have had eight years of the most meticulously choreographed suspension of reality that America has ever seen.

Alas, as a testament to his ginormous ineptitude, even this flotilla of revisionism and spin could not keep the bodies from floating to the surface.

At this hour, a pathetic string of panic moves confirms the impending horror.   His remaining toadies work to discredit Donald Trump.  No outgoing president has ever tried to discredit the incoming president even before they took office. Obama blurts out how he would have beaten Trump.  He has become Norma Desmond descending the staircase in the final scene of Sunset Boulevard.

Let’s take one final look at what he did to us.

  1. He paralyzed the economy: The expansion that began in June 2009 has been the weakest since World War II, with real gross domestic product growth averaging 2.1%. At 7 1/2 years and counting, it is also among the longest on record. 98 million Americans are out of the workforce. Millions more live below the poverty level.

He strangled small business with regulations.  He fought harder to put men in women’s restrooms than he did to put money in your pocket.

The greatest testament to his failure in the economy was the immediate reaction of the Stock Market and business when Donald Trump won.  Economic pundit Caroline Baum said, “New signs of optimism emerged immediately following Trump’s Nov. 8 election. The stock market has been positively buoyant while consumer, business and home-builder confidence have all soared. Surveys suggest businesses are planning to increase capital spending.  That sense of optimism will need to be ratified by results, but the message to Obama is unmistakable: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

  1. He nearly destroyed the Democratic Party. “In the eight years since he was first elected, Democrats have lost more than 1,000 seats at the state and national level. Republicans now control 4,170 state legislative seats compared with 3,129 for the Democrats, an all-time low.

Republicans now hold 33 governorships and will have full control — governorship and both houses of the state legislature — in 25 states compared with five for the Democrats.

Democrats lost 12 governorships, 13 Senate seats and 69 seats in the House of Representatives during Obama’s two terms, highlighting “a devastation up and down the party across the nation,” -The Hill.

  1. He looked like a clown to our enemies. Obama claims he told Russian President Vladimir Putin in China in September, to “cut it out” in terms of the hacking. Putin’s reaction embodies the world’s view of Obama.  Putin thought it was a joke.

Mr. President, at first, the world saw you as a promise.  Then they were amused.  Now they are dazed and confused by you.   Your eight years of leading from behind and issuing empty threats stripped America of moral authority and turned our foreign policy into sputtering wreckage.

Again, Caroline Baum said, “The wars Obama inherited are still going on. The Taliban has made a comeback in Afghanistan. Syria is in shambles. And Secretary of State John Kerry has been so ineffective that no one even bothered to invite him to the Syrian cease-fire negotiations among Russia, Turkey and Iran.

  1. He stabbed Israel in the back. Obama overruled 36 years of U.S. policy by abandoning its ally Israel and allowing the passage of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2234, declaring Israeli settlements, including the Western Wall and Temple Mount in East Jerusalem, illegal. He did it out of hatred for Israel.
  2. He made race relations worse. He stood in front of the Greek columns in Denver and promised to make race relations better. 56% say he made them worse.

Before he had the facts, Obama accused Cambridge, Mass., police officers of acting “stupidly” when they arrested Henry Louis Gates Jr. in his own home in 2009. The police were responding to a report of a potential burglary, which turned out to be Gates trying to pry open his front door.

Blacks and Whites took sides and the racial divide began.  On his watch cops were killed out of racial hatred.  Rioting, looting and burning down businesses were justified to protest.  Obama offered only mild rebukes.  He led the Democratic Party down the destructive path of race baiting.

Obama has promoted the idea of a police force biased against blacks. He vehemently denied FBI Director James Comey’s explanation for the surge in violent crime and homicide rates last year as a result of the “Ferguson effect,” with law-enforcement officers pulling back from proactive policing following the 2014 fatal shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.

Obama says police are out to target blacks but totally ignores black on black violence.   Chicago, Obama’s hometown, witnessed 762 homicides last year, the most in two decades, and 1,100 more shootings than in 2015.   Obama refuses to accept the fact that police are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than white ones.

  1. Obama will not say Radical Islamic Terrorism no matter what. Once more let me quote Caroline Baum: “Obama has spent eight years deftly avoiding using those three words to call an act what it is. He has intellectualized his position by claiming the phrase “equates Islam with terrorism,” which is counterproductive to U.S. counterterrorism efforts.

Instead, Obama prefers terms such as “workplace violence,” even if the terrorists in question pay homage to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State. A terrorist act provides an opportunity for the president to lecture the nation on the need for stricter gun-control laws.

Calling something what it is may not solve the problem, but avoiding it makes Obama look silly.”

Some of you may wonder why I have skipped other scandals like Benghazi, Solyndra, Fast and Furious and illegals who killed American.  Frankly, there is no room here for all his failings.

Legacy? What legacy?  Pilate wondered about Jesus’ mission and legacy.  He asked Jesus about it.  Jesus said, “ask those who saw my works and heard my teaching.”

Hardly anyone is left who can—with a straight face and a strong stomach—say something about Obama’s words, acts and legacy.  Obama is left to do it himself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Breaking news about Mario Murillo

 

 

 

On November the 9th there will be a big change at Mario Murillo Ministries.  This announcement has been in the planning stages for years but Mario feels that now is the right time to go public.

We have reached a historic milestone:  2 million people have now read Mario Murillo’s blog.

This does not include videos—this is people sitting down to read.  The fact that reading is dying—especially on social media which is overrun by video blogs—makes this achievement even more amazing.

We also know that the blog has been quietly censored…even throttled.  This means that our actual readership is probably much higher.

This blog was one of the very first Christian blogs to openly oppose Barack Obama.  At the time, Obama had a 68% approval rating and it was uncool to criticize him.

Some pastors told Mario he was no longer welcomed in their pulpits.

A large Christian network took him off the air because of his oppositional papers on Obama, Islam and same sex marriage…yes, same sex marriage.

Mario’s blog was one of the very first to publicly support Trump for president—another unpopular stance.   He did not call it prophetic…just common sense.  Once again, the blog endured critical headwinds…but readers kept coming back and the audience kept growing.

Astoundingly, the blog has been read in 174 of the 176 nations of the world.  (Why embarrass the two tiny nations that have not read the blog).

Now Mario is making another ground breaking announcement.  He says that the mantle for his political commentary is being lifted by the Holy Spirit.  He even has a date for the blog’s transformation: November 9th.

It’s not that his writings will never again rebuke government it’s just that he feels something will change drastically on November 9th.

When pressed he could only speculate on why the Holy Spirit will lift this mantle of warning, correcting and exposing the corruption of Washington:

“I believe God had me speak out because America was on the brink of an unalterable disaster.  On November 8th, we will either be rescued by Trump or driven into the ground by Hillary. 

If we are rescued, then my work in this arena is done.  I must leave this kind of commentary to others.

november-9th

If Hillary wins, we must assume we will become the underground church.  Her appointments to the Supreme court will be the finishing touch to the already contaminated IRS, FBI and Justice Department.   How can anyone suppose that freedom of speech or freedom of religion will survive her?  How can anyone think this is not our last free election if she comes to power? 

Her unholy alliance with Google, Facebook, Apple, Youtube, Twitter and Hollywood will guarantee that any opposing thought will be smothered.  They will be the propaganda machine to justify criminalizing Christianity.

In such a case, I must proceed as if I am in Russia, China or even North Korea.  I must weigh my writings for the impact they will have on the church under a government that will openly punish citizens for reading ‘subversive material.’

When she refers to us as ‘deplorables that cannot be redeemed’ how do you think she will treat us when she has the power?”

So what does he think he will write after November 9th?   “I will occasionally rebuke government.  However, I must declare signs, wonders and miracles more than ever.  I must speak fire and faith to the soldiers of God who may, by then, suffer beneath the lash of a hostile government.”

In either case…November 9th is the start of a whole new kind of blog from Mario Murillo.  Stay tuned!
