The Man Behind the Curtain

By Judd Garrett 

In the 1939 classic movie, the Wizard of Oz, in the climactic scene at the end of the movie, when Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion, finally meet with the all-powerful Wizard of Oz who they all hope will solve their problems, they stand before a gigantic screen, with the Wizard’s enormously round face projected on it, speaking to them in a loud ominous voice with fire and smoke flashing all around. As the Wizard is rejecting their requests, Dorothy’s dog, Toto, jumps out of her arms, runs off to the side of the big screen and pulls back a curtain revealing a little man, pushing and pulling different levers. The voice from the big screen, tells the group, “pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.”The little man behind the curtain was, in fact, projecting onto the screen, the image of himself as the all-powerful Wizard of Oz that they were all terrified of. It was all a fraud.

In an article released this week by historians, David Samuel and David Garrow, it was revealed that Barack Obama is currently “serving as a third-term president in all but name, running the government from his iPhone.” This aligns with his wishes that he revealed to Stephen Colbert in a 2015 interview when he mused, “I used to say if I can make an arrangement where I had a stand-in or front man or front woman, and they had an earpiece in, and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff, and I could sort of deliver the lines while someone was doing all the talking and ceremony… I’d be fine with that because I found the work fascinating.” Most people who observe the political landscape with the eyes and ears open, and are not blinded by their partisanship, realized over two years ago that this is what the Biden presidency actually was – Biden is the avatar for Obama’s third term. There are many so-called journalists who work in the mainstream media who have collectively decided to ‘pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, pulling the levers of our government.’

Joe Biden is the perfect politician to play the figurehead for Barack Obama. Any politician worth their salt – and Joe Biden is clearly not worth his salt – would refuse to play the fraudulent role that Joe Biden is willingly playing right now. Gavin Newsom wouldn’t do it. If he were elected President, he would want to be the President. He would have the job and the title of the most powerful man in the free world, so he wouldn’t sit idly by taking orders from someone who isn’t the President of the United States. That’s why the Democrat party has hesitated in replacing Joe Biden when it is clear to everyone, he is a bad candidate, an unpopular President, and will most likely be completely catatonic by the year 2028. Joe obliges because he knows that there is no other way that he would have become President other than this charade. So, Obama needs to do anything possible to push Biden across the finish line one more time so he can serve his fourth term.

This is another reason why I believe that the 2020 election was stolen. Any politician who campaigned legitimately and won the Presidential election legally, would never allow a former President to call the shots in his administration. Biden is allowing that to happen because he knows that his entire election is fraudulent. It was Barack Obama’s voter fraud apparatus that ushered Biden into the White House, which in turn, makes Joe beholden to Barack, causing him to allow Obama to call all the shots. Joe knows that if he doesn’t do as he’s told, Obama will pull the rug out from under him. If Biden had actually won legitimately, he would turn to Obama and tell him, “I’m the President now, you sit off to the side, and be quiet.” Ronald Reagan was not calling the shots in the George HW Bush White House. If he were, Bush probably would’ve been reelected in 1992.

Everything about Joe Biden is fraudulent. Joe Biden‘s entire political career has been mired in dishonesty. Biden has been selling influence from his political office to enrich himself and his family for the last 40 years. We all know that Joe Biden could not possibly get 81,000,000 legitimate votes. We all know that Joe Biden is not running our country. He couldn’t run a lemonade stand. He doesn’t know that he’s President half the time. He can barely spit out a coherent sentence. He’s been caught on camera, shaking hands with people who aren’t even there. His face is frozen in a deer in the headlights look. Barack Obama is the puppet master, and Joe Biden is the willing puppet.

Biden made himself a puppet 35 years ago when he stole the speeches of accomplished politicians like British politician, Neil Kinnick, and also the speeches of John F Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy. By doing that, he made the statement that ‘I cannot speak for myself, I need the words of other, smarter people to speak for me.’ He was plagiarizing – pawning off the words of others as his own – all the way back in law school. And that is what Biden continues to do being Obama’s puppet. How ironic is it that the one Democratic challenger that Biden is facing in this primary season is Robert Kennedy Jr, the son of the politician who Biden stole the speeches from in 1988 which forced him to drop out of the Presidential primaries back then.

So, we hear a lot about threats to our democracy (which we are not), and threats to our elections, but what is playing itself out right now at Pennsylvania Avenue where the person who has the title of President, actually, isn’t the President, and another politician, who wasn’t elected to be President is working behind the scenes, as President, is the real threat to our political system. The most important part about our political system is the people’s ability to hold our politicians accountable. So, when the person who is calling all the shots is hiding behind a curtain, and never asked a question about any decision that he makes, his feet are never held to the fire for any of the problems that his decisions have created, we no longer have a democratic system, we no longer have a Constitutional Republic. We have a banana republic.

And that is what we have become over the last four years. This administration, run by Obama, is actually indicting, arresting, and trying to throw political opponents into prison for the rest of their lives for their political speech. Last week, Republican frontrunner, Donald Trump was charged with defrauding the federal government, and defrauding our election system. As always, the Democrats will accuse the Republicans of doing what they themselves are doing. Barack Obama calling the shots in the White House behind the scenes, and Joe Biden, simply being a figurehead, is defrauding the United States federal government, and defrauding our election system. Like Joe Biden, everything about Barack Obama is fraudulent.

His policies which are run through the Biden administration, have caused over 5 million illegal immigrants to walk into our country over the last 2 ½ years with the sole purpose of changing the racial dynamic in our country under the guise of that “diversity is our strength“. But diversity is not our strength, unity is our strength. We are the United States of America, with the emphasis on “United”. As the saying goes, “united we stand, divided we fall.” And the man behind the curtain, pulling the levers of our government is hell-bent on dividing our country, so he can destroy our country, because he hates our country. In 2008, his wife, Michelle said, that the first time she was ever proud of our country was when her husband won the presidency. Does that mean that only 45 wives should be proud of their country? Obama is determined to bring in millions and millions more illegal immigrants into the country because he knows that very few of those illegal immigrants have the love and respect for our country that citizens need to have for America to remain united and strong. They will eventually cause our country to implode because their loyalties are elsewhere.

In the end of the movie, it was revealed that each of the characters looking to the Wizard of Oz to solve their problems, had the power to solve their own problems themselves. The Scarecrow was in fact smart; the Tin Man did indeed have a heart; the Cowardly Lion was actually very courageous; and Dorothy had the power to go home all along. The problems that each of them looked to the Wizard to solve were either not problems at all, or could be solved by themselves without any help from the all-powerful Wizard. And that is true in our country as well. Most of the problems that we turn to government to solve, are either not problems – fictions created by the government to scare the people into giving them more power – or are problems that are best addressed and solved by the people themselves without the damaging help of the all-powerful government. But the leftist politicians must maintain the fiction of the all-powerful government who can fix all problems in order to cling to the power over us that they crave so desperately. When in reality, the government is just a group of elected and non-elected citizens who are no smarter and no more moral than the average citizen walking the streets. When we remove, the pomp, the circumstance, the smoke and mirrors of the government, each politician, each government official looks as small and as powerless as the man behind the curtain in the land of Oz.

Barack Obama Is 'The Big Lie'

One of the luckiest things in my life has been my good fortune to meet and become friendly or even real friends with some of the most interesting people in politics. Growing up in Detroit, I never would have guessed I’d get to know Tucker Carlson, Christopher Hitchens, David Limbaugh, etc. – so many people, I could write a column just name-dropping. It’s weird to me still, having politically grown up watching these people on television and learning from them. To become friends with Andrew Breitbart before he was famous, and experiencing the circus the media created around him, of which he was the master, as he grew in stature was an incredible thing to witness.

“Joe the Plumber” is another such person. But this isn’t about Joe, or any of the other people I’ve been blessed to know, even though Joe plays an important part, this is about Barack Obama. I didn’t “get to know” Obama, but I can claim to have had a few cigarettes with him back in the day when we both smoked. 

I was a press secretary in the US Senate in 2006, and I smoked. I’d step outside for a cigarette from time to time and then Senator Obama, also a smoker, would come walking from the Capitol having a smoke and would finish it with us other smokers. Like you would with anyone, I would just shoot the breeze with him. It didn’t happen often, Senators have busy schedules. But he’d walk outside from the Capitol to the office buildings sometimes rather than use the tunnels for the same reason I did – because you wanted to have a smoke or two. 

He was perfectly nice and engaging, which isn’t really an accomplishment because you have to try to be a jerk when you’re just standing around with one or two other people having a smoke. But I can’t say I know the man because I don’t.

When he ran for president in 2008, he just “came across” someone else just going about their business – the aforementioned Joe the Plumber. 

All Joe did was ask a basic question about taxes. In his answer, Barack Obama used the “spread the wealth around” line that exposed his true radical leanings. That terrified David Axelrod and the Obama guard in the media, which set out to destroy Joe.

In the next 48 hours we learned more about Joe – did you know his name was really Samuel, not Joe? Joe is his middle name – then we still know about Obama. Joe’s taxes were illegally leaked by the state of Ohio, for example, yet we have not ever, and likely will never see Obama’s college transcripts or know how a man, who by his own claims, was an average high school student who spent a lot of time smoking weed managed to get into three of the most prestigious institutions of higher learning on the planet. Not because there aren’t answers to that question, but because the people with the job of asking are steadfastly refused to.

Just like the refused to ask any questions about Obama’s background or life. Have you ever seen an interview with one of his close friends growing up? Anyone from high school? Any human being who remembers Barack Obama from college, who was his actual friend? Nope. And no ex-girlfriends. 

Well, there is one ex-girlfriend, an evil white girl who dated Barry (which is what he went by before it was politically advantageous to be “Barack”) who was finally tracked down.

By “tracked down '' mean looked for. She wasn’t in hiding, it’s just that no reporter cared enough to do any basic journalism – it’s much easier to rewrite press releases rather than report, lest you lose your space where their lips were firmly planted on Obama’s posterior. 

Her name is Sheila Miyoshi Jager, and Obama lied about why he broke up with her in his second autobiography, “Dreams from My Father.” (As an aside, that title always struck me as odd since his father wanted nothing to do with him, abandoning him as a baby. His mom wasn’t much better, but she waited longer before ditching him with his grandparents so she could follow a man around the world.) His version had to do with his a-woke-ening to blackness and identity politics, her version is he was a jackass refusing to condemn anti-Semitism. (For a lot more on this and the lies around Obama, read this article.) 

Whatever the case, the fact that you likely didn’t know that or anything about Barack Obama “the man” is not a testament to just how incurious the press is, but how protective. Joe the Plumber was attacked and smeared for asking a question Obama answered, as he might say, “stupidly” because he answered honestly. To this day there are people who hate Joe, one of the nicest, most genuine people I’ve ever had the pleasure to call a friend, for asking that question. They are disgusting people and they populate the prime-time line-up of MSNBC. How they live with themselves, I’ll never understand.

But they aren’t going anywhere, and they’re still throwing themselves on grenades for fraudulent Democrats. 

The story of Barack Obama – the myth he and his handlers created around him – is the real “Big Lie” in American politics, and no legacy media employee has bothered to even ask a skeptical question about it. They’ve shifted from protecting Barack Obama to protecting Joe Biden. It’s a tougher sell, and they do feel a little dirty prostituting themselves for a corrupt, rich, old white man, but the agenda must be served. Besides, the only things that changed from Obama to Biden are the age and skin color, and they only pretend to care about those things anyway…

Hookers might not like their clients, but they have a job to do and will get in trouble with their pimps if they turn down a trick. Having a press pass doesn’t change that dynamic, it just legitimizes it…at least as much as being a whore can be legitimized.
