2016: A Spaced-out Political Oddity

The Movie “2001: A Space Odyssey” was on TV recently and it was noticeable in this odd political season of 2016, the close relationship between what the two humans on the space craft experienced compared with what HAL, the computer interface system, was telling them about what they saw and heard taking place during their voyage, and how these events can be compared with actions of the Obama administration.

The humans saw what they thought was a computer error occurring, but HAL, the computer’s human input/output communications system, insisted that the 9000 Series Computer had never made a mistake and never had an error. This sounded strangely like the Obama administration stating that it will be the most transparent administration the nation has ever had, and then we learn of them making secret nuclear deals with the Iranian Mullahs; opening up our borders to all who want to illegally enter, while simultaneously claiming that more illegal border crossers had been sent back home than ever before; getting an American agent killed with their Fast and Furious scheme which attempted to blame our constitution for deaths with rifles that were legally sold in America; promising Obamacare would allow all Americans to keep their plan, keep their doctor, and would save them $2500 a year; and other underhanded if not illegal acts committed by the current administration.

HAL then kills one of the astronauts and insults the intelligence of the surviving crew member by claiming that it could not determine what caused his death due to lack of sufficient data on the subject. Sounds kind of like a multi-pronged, multi-month FBI investigation into Hillary’s time as Secretary of State being ended by the Obama administration with a claimed lack of proof that she did anything wrong.

If we can for one minute associate HAL with our big, bloated government which claims perfection in all things yet makes one decision after another that either limits the liberties of American citizens or gets patriotic Americans killed, there is a lesson to learn from this movie. The HALs of the world, in this instance, the Obama administration and its enormous and intrusive government, have forgotten that the mission of the United States is liberty and freedom and not the leftist, freakish desires of the Obama administration. They are subverting the mission defined by the constitution and in the process they are destroying the nation. Presidential administrations are supposed to maintain the nation as founded, not change or destroy it.

The FBI has been investigating Hillary for months on suspicion of money and influence peddling and government security violations while she was Secretary of State, but HAL/Obama tells us he doesn’t believe any security violations were committed; Bill Clinton meets secretly with Obama’s Attorney General (Loretta Lynch) at an airport in Phoenix; then Mrs. Lynch announces, in a carefully worded statement, that she is prepared to accept the advice of the FBI director as to the next step to take on Hillary’s email investigation; then Hillary states that, if elected president, she will retain Mrs. Lynch as her Attorney General; then James Comey, the Director of the FBI, forgives Hillary and halts the investigation, but only after properly listing each of the crimes the investigation found she was guilty of and finally labels her as being Grossly Negligent.

HAL in the form of Obama is trying to take over your life and the lives of future American citizens, and time has almost run out to save ourselves and our nation from a president who swore to “fundamentally transform America”, and he’s almost completed his sinister task.
