Obama, Flies, and Bees

Our eyes are windows into our souls. What do these tell you?

What is it with Obama and flying insects?

During the 2008 campaign, an LA Times reporter assigned to follow Obama described the following creepy scene on a campaign stop one hot summer afternoon in Iowa:

“Obama was flipping burgers at a backyard barbecue, in what the campaign hoped would be an exquisite photo opportunity. A fly began circling his head. Then more flies. Pretty soon flies were swarming him, the burgers — everything. It was awful to watch. But in rhythmic fashion he began waving them off with his hand.”

Then on June 16, 2009, while Obama was being interviewed in the White House, a fly kept buzzing around his head. Without a moment’s hesitation, Obama killed the fly with his hand.

Obama, the Lord of the Flies.

Did you know that “Lord of the Flies” is the literal meaning of the Greek word (βεελζεβούβ) for Beelzebub?

So who is Beelzebub? Beelzebub — derived from Ba‘al Zebûb, a Semitic deity worshipped in the Philistine city of Ekron  is the name of one of the seven princes of Hell. Beelzebub was used by the later Christians as a term for Satan.

Yesterday, May 16, comes an even more bizarre incident. Eric Zimmermann of The Hill reports that a swarm of “thousands of bees” hovered as Obama tried to leave the White House to play basketball at Fort McNair. By the time the Lord of the Flies returned at noon, the bees were apparently nowhere in sight.
So I looked up references to swarms of bees in the Bible. This is what I found:

“And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, even unto Hormah.” -Deuteronomy 1:44

The Book of Deuteronomy is the last of the five books that make up the Pentateuch, believed to be the recording of the words of God given to Moses. Deuteronomy consists of 34 chapters and is in the form of a series of sermons delivered by Moses to the Israelites in the plains of Moab before their entry into the Promised Land.

How should Deuteronomy 1:44 be understood? Well, let’s look at the context of that passage. Here’s the passage that precedes 1:44, of Moses chastising the rebellious Israelites:

“So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill.” -Deuteronomy 1:43

Here’s the passage that folows 1:44:

“And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you.” – Deuteronomy 1:45

Here’s Matthew Henry’s Commentary on Deu 1:44:

“An unbelieving heart was at the bottom of all this. All disobedience to God’s laws, and distrust of his power and goodness, flow from disbelief of his word….”

The signs cannot be more clear. May God have mercy on America.

  1. This is unbelievably scary. I knew that there was some reference to swarms in the Bible–thought it might be in Revelation. The reference to Satan/Beelzebub is no coincidence. Of course, these people in the White House say that we cling to our religion. I doubt many of them own or even are aware of what is in the Bible. The future may get interesting!

  2. I’m with you-Doc’s Wife!

  3. that’s just eery….but not surprising. The Traitor is evil doing everything he can to destroy our country…

  4. Did you ever see the video about the lottery numbers that came up in Illinois – his home state – the day after the election?

  5. Pick 3: 666
    Pick 4: 7779

  6. The flies buzzing around Obama are all green.

    LOL – I pitty any urbanite who doesn’t understand what that means.

  7. So do we call the thing in the white house ‘The drawer of maggots.’????? or the ‘Developer of flies.’

    Wasn’t there a king during the time of Jesus who was eaten up by worms?

    I love all your analogies and references to Biblical truths.

  8. This is interesting. As you watch the video, it is noteworthy to observe the timing of the fly. As soon as Obama said, “transparency and openness, the signature characteristics (referring to his administration) is when the fly came and caught him in the middle of the lie! His administration has no transparency and has no openness, otherwise he would have no problem providing to the people of this country his original birth certificate and all of his records that have been requested in numerous lawsuits. There is nothing transparent about Obama. I think the fact that insects follow him about and bother him is most noteworthy!!!!

    • Joan,

      Astute observation on the timing of the fly coinciding with Obama’s lie. I know that in your work as an administrative law judge, you’ve come to realize the importance of timing, a lesson that you later taught me! :)

    Joan,
    I think you’re on to something! We can monitor the flight patterns and swarming habits of flies and bees to tell when obama is lying. We can call it THE FLY-DETECTOR/BEE-ROMITOR TEST. Yeah, it could work!

  10. I think it is funny that the fly interrupted his continuous lie! Thank you, Eowyn, for that acknowledgment. It took me some time to learn that everything is in the timing! Good point Angry White Woman! (I love your name!!!-it’s great! I once had a priest tell me that anger can be a form of great love!) Well, I have also noticed watching creation where I live, that the creatures know when ominous weather is coming. They will not eat seed and the possums and the raccoons will not eat their treats either! I think all of God’s creation knows so much more than we will ever know that they know! Even insects!

  11. The Angry White Woman

    “I think all of God’s creation knows so much more than we will ever know that they know! Even insects!”

    Well put, Joan. And amen.

  12. Thank you AWW (is it ok to call you that?) St. Francis observed and heard God speak to Him through creation. We’ll have to keep watching the insects around Obama!

    God bless you!

  13. June 22, as reported by cover story headline of Drudge Report: “Lord of the Flies”. Yet another fly again lands on Obama’s face while he is giving a speech.

  14. I should send you my poem about flies….It’s actually funny.

  15. Glenn Beck read part of this on the air today — congrats: you’re famous!

  16. Lord of the Flies – I think we have a new title! Two thumbs up – Way up!

  17. President Beelzebub? We all know what attracts flies the most…….

  18. Considering he can lie directly to the people and even generally wise open minded people become angry when you point out something negative about him. It’s quite disconcerting.

  19. President Beelzebub? Nice one. Obama is Beelzebub, spread the word!

  20. Today is January 24th, 2013 and AGAIN…a fly is flying around this fools head!! How weird is this? He is announcing a lesbian Mary Jo for some bogus committee and a fly is circling his head! Speaks volumes! His anus is probably jealous with the S#!! that comes out of his mouth, however the fly again is attracted!
