The Sun King
Obama le Roi-Soleil

record of the legacy of America's own Sun King is being written today
by those of the left who feel compelled to maintain the "official"
record of the United States' history.
apologies to the people of France, we have chosen to describe our
President Obama as their Louis the XIV. At least the official
description of him in history books of tomorrow will glow with our
See, it makes no difference if the Obama
Administration is an abject failure, the history books will present him
in much the same way as the Cult of Lincoln does the American tyrant --
Look. I'm a southerner, and a student of
history ... not an expert on history, not a history "scholar," just a
student of history. As such, I have actually been exposed to the
painful truth of our history on many occasions -- and it ain't pretty.
propagandists who write our history books are almost entirely from the
leftist sector of the political spectrum. It is the leftist narrative
(story line) they will protect and it is from the point of view of that
narrative they will write of President Obama for future students of
The truth be damned! The narrative is the thing!
To be sure -- Obama is THEIR Sun King.
matters not that Obama has been one of the worst, if not THE worst
President America has ever had ... period. But you will never find any
hint of that, or ANY of his short comings, in future history books.
Heck, it is nigh on to impossible to find any mention of Obama's less
than sterling leadership abilities or his mediocre talent for
governance in the leftist press, (otherwise known as the Mainstream
One would be hard pressed to think of another
president of modern times who enjoyed the life of a "jet-setter" while
in office, especially when the country is in such perilous shape. The
only other playboy, jet setter, president who comes to mind -- in fairly
recent decades -- is JFK. But then JFK came into office riding on a
cushion of money from his father's former bootlegging business. (Hey!
That's not a put down. MY family had its share of bootleggers, too!
Mine even made the stuff they sold! In fact, I'm sorta partial to
As I said above, I am a southerner. I grew up
under an imposed cloud of lies and, even to this day, we southern folk
are compelled to defend our families from the stench of the lies
surrounding the so-called American Civil War. The REAL history of that
war and the reasons for that war bear almost no resemblance to the
"official" history of the same event.
Consider this: "Much
of Civil War history is untrue. The story is told that millions of
southerners went to war over an issue that only affected some 6 percent
of the population. Such absurdity is readily seen.
no shining Northern force fighting a moral battle for the sake of ending
slavery. There was no oppressive southern force fighting to preserve
slavery, either. After the south declared its independence, the Union
ruthlessly invaded, leaving Southerners no choice but to defend
Unfortunately the south lost that struggle and has suffered for a century and a half because of it." (Taken from the book "The South Was Right" by James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy published by Pelican.)
riles me to think, as I sometimes do, that the South contains
approximately one-third of the American people. Yet the southern
states, even to this day, enjoy less freedom than the remainder of the
so-called "United" States. Even our elections, in a number of southern
states, are governed by the US Federal Judiciary. And consider this.
Only one justice on the US Supreme Court is a southerner. I take great
pride in the fact that HE is a southern black man. (You may recall the terrific fight we had getting Clarence Thomas of Georgia seated on that court.)

with seven justices coming from states to the north and east of
Washington, D.C.. The remaining two justices come from Georgia and
The "Cult of Lincoln"
has so obscured the deviousness of the man, that modern Americans will
never actually know who Lincoln really was -- a lying, two-faced, back
stabbing, racist, politician who's mental elevator didn't go all the way
to the top. Now, however, he is celebrated as an American demi-god.
We can expect a "Cult of Obama,"
as well. He cannot be allowed to fail, you see, for the historical
record. No matter that our history is, for the most part, revisionist
history. But, then again, nearly ALL official history is "revised."
Practically all real, un-revised, history (with warts, hairs and all) is
deeply hidden. A student of history today MUST be an accomplished researcher.
the historical record of America's Sun King will be written in glowing
accounts of his accomplishments with no mention of the lasting damage to
the constitution and to the generations of Americans yet unborn.
