Sandman and Rise of the Guardians
Joseph Herrin (12-23-2012)
The above image of President Barack Obama was formed from sand and put on display during the Democratic National Convention held in Charlotte, North Carolina. It appeared in the news at the time when rains that drenched the area damaged the sand sculpture and it had to be refashioned.
When a sister in Christ wrote to me recently and mentioned that she had been contemplating the coincidence of the names Hurricane Sandy, and Sandy Hook, and was led to contemplate the relation to the name “Sandman,” she piqued my interest. Sister Sherry provided a link to an article that describes Barack Obama as a sandman. In the article there is a quotation from 2008 where Barack Obama uses the term “Sandman” when referring to his performance.
At a Jan. 19 (2008) fundraiser at Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater, Obama took to the stage toward the end of the evening and broke out in song.
“It had been a particularly musical occasion and the president’s appearance followed several performers including soul singer the Rev. Al Green, whom Obama acknowledged,” Hodges explains in his book. “But the entertainers were expected to sing – Obama was only expected to speak. Without warning, however, he delivered a surprisingly pleasing falsetto lyric, ‘I’mmm … sooo in love with you’ – the opening line from Green’s 1972 hit ‘Let’s Stay Together.’ Not believing their ears, the audience bursts into applause. After the ovation subsides, Obama takes it all in, then hesitantly glances toward his staff off stage right. Talking directly to them but also to America, he blurts out, ‘Those guys didn’t think I would do it. I told you I was going to do it.’”
But Obama added a comment most reporters missed.
“The sandman did not come out,” Obama said. “Now don’t worry, I can’t sing like you, but I just wanted to show my appreciation.”
What Obama intended by this remark is revealed in the following information found on Wikipedia.
Howard Sims (January 24, 1917 – May 20, 2003), also known as "Sandman," was a tap dancer in vaudeville. He acquired his name from the sand he sprinkled on the floor to amplify the sound of his steps when he danced. In his senior years, Sims appeared at the famous Apollo Theater, comedically ushering failed acts offstage with a shepherd's crook, or "hook"...
That something was signified by this statement nearly five years ago, will become more apparent throughout this post. I have pondered various aspects of what it means to be a “sandman.” A sandman is easily molded. Sand can take on whatever image is desired at the moment. It can easily be reworked, taking a completely different form. The images created from sand lack substance, having no permanence.
Marvel Comics introduced a character known as the Sandman in 1963, two years after Barack Obama was born. This character was a villain, but later “reformed” and became an ally of Spider Man. This switch of character seems befitting one who is identified with something as changeable as sand. Following is an excerpt from the Wikipedia article on this comic strip character.
Sandman (William Baker a.k.a. Flint Marko) is a fictional character who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. A shapeshifter endowed through an accident with the ability to turn himself into sand...
William Baker was born in Queens, New York. At three years old his father abandoned him and his mother. In these early years she took her son to Coney Island beach. He lost himself happily in sand sculptures...
A number of things stand out prominently to me. First, the Sandman went by an alias. This is in keeping with Barry Soetero/Barack Obama. The Wikipedia article mentions that the name Flint Marko was adopted to hide his true identity. The parallels are obvious here. Second, the Sandman’s father abandoned him at an early age, as did the father of Barry Soetero. Third, the Sandman is a “shapeshifter.” This is a quality shared by many politicians. They take on whatever image best suits their targeted audience at the moment. When appearing before an LGBT audience, Barack Obama is a champion of that which Yahweh describes as an abomination. When speaking to Muslim’s, he is an ally of Islam and makes reference to his upbringing where he grew up listening to the call of the azan, describing it as “the prettiest sound on earth.” When before Muslim’s he magnifies his Islamic heritage, and praises the achievements and teachings of Islam.
When before a Christian audience, Barack Obama quotes the Bible, and presents an image of a solid Christian.
When speaking to an audience of Planned Parenthood staff and supporters, Obama speaks of his defense of a woman’s right to kill her unborn baby. When speaking to a nation grieving the loss of twenty children in Sandy Hook, Obama speaks of a parent’s great compassion for their children, and seemingly wipes away tears at the thought of the death of these little ones. A sandman seems an apt illustration of such a man who takes on an image to fit the moment, being as changeable as shifting sands blown about by the wind.
One portrayal that Barack Obama has adopted much of late is that of a protector, or defender of men. His appearance in those areas impacted by Hurricane Sandy, and his promise to take care of people, was displayed across the media as the President was cast in the role of defender, protector, and provider.
Away from the photo op, however, the image proves as insubstantial as sand.
Interestingly, the name Sandy means “Defender of men.” Another sister, Alison, notified me of a current Hollywood production, and animated feature length film titled Rise of the Guardians. One of the heroic, yet imaginary, characters in the movie is the Sandman. In this movie, the Sandman goes by the name “Sandy!” Pay close attention to the words spoken in the following movie trailer.
The voice declares:
We go by many names (like Barack Obama) and take many forms (like a sandman). We bring wonder and hope.
We bring joy and dreams.
It is our job to protect the children of the world. As long as they believe in us we will guard them with our lives.
Compare these words from the film trailer to the words recently spoken by the President while addressing the families and friends of the victims in Sandy Hook.
We bear responsibility for every child… This is our first task, caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right.
That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.
And by that measure, can we truly say, as a nation, that we’re meeting our obligations? Can we honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep our children, ALL of them, safe from harm? Can we claim, as a nation, that we’re all together there, letting them know they are loved and teaching them to love in return? Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?
I’ve been reflecting on this the last few days, and if we’re honest with ourselves, the answer’s no. We’re not doing enough. And we will have to change.
Change. That is a familiar theme for this President. Not only has he promised change, but he changes character to match every moment. He is the sandman. This leads me to another characteristic of the fabled Sandman. The Sandman puts people to sleep, especially children, and causes them to dream.
Traditionally he is a character in many children's stories. He is said to sprinkle sand or dust on or into the eyes of the child at night to bring on dreams and sleep.

Establishing this connection further, the movie Rise of the Guardians is produced by DreamWorks.
Dreams are something intangible, unsubstantial, ethereal. They have no more substance than the media caricatures of America’s politicians. Blink and they are gone. The President, and those in league with him, are asking Americans to believe in them. They are asking for the people’s trust, assuring them that they serve the ultimate welfare of the populace. This is an illusion. It is part of the dragon’s breath, that flood of deception being poured out upon the earth.
The image portrayed of America’s current President is a fable. It contains no more truth than the story of Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, or the Easter Bunny. Yet, when people believe it, it becomes real to them.
I highly recommend to all who are able that they watch the video Dreams of My Real Father. It draws back the curtain and exposes the fraud that has been perpetrated upon America.
(If you are an Amazon Prime member, the video is free for viewing. For others it is a available for a nominal fee.)
The video reveals that the image of Obama portrayed to the masses is fiction. His persona has been engineered by various members of a global elite working to bring forth a New World Order. Like the sand that was taken from Myrtle Beach in South Carolina and used to construct an image of Barack Obama at the DNC forum in Charlotte, his appearance is something that has been crafted by the powers that be.
There is an insightful article on World Net Daily that sets forth a potent argument for William Ayers being the actual author of the Obama biography Dreams From My Father. There are some intriguing statements found in the article.
Allow me to reconstruct how Obama transformed himself in a few short years from an awkward amateur into what the New York Times has called “that rare politician who can write … and write movingly and genuinely about himself.”
Obama is truly a sandman, having experienced a re-birth, taking on a new identity. His image continues to morph to suit the moment. Before Barack Obama had done anything as President of the United States he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. A bringer of peace became another part of his persona, though this reputation was baseless.
What is the connection between the Sandman and Rise of the Guardians? This is a question I have been pondering. It is not without purpose that the powers that rule Hollywood should choose at this very hour when the Sandy Hook shootings occurred, to have a major motion picture for children out in the theaters that is titledRise of the Guardians. This movie is based on a series of books by William Joyce titled The Guardians of Childhood. This is a bizarre, if not macabre, coincidence. Keep in mind that “holly wood” is used to make wands for witches and wizards. In the Harry Potter series, Harry’s wand was made of holly wood. Satan uses movies for diabolical and occult purposes.
In the movie, a character named Pitch seeks to engulf the world in darkness. This is a theme found in multiple movies of late (The Dark Knight Rises, Zero Dark Thirty, Into Darkness, etc.). In Rise of the Guardians a group of fictitious characters arises to save the world and guard the children. At the same time we are seeing a group of fictional guardians arising in the natural world, led by the mythological image recognized as Barack Hussein Obama. He is the Sandman (Sandy). In the movie, the mythological beings triumph over darkness when Sandy is resurrected through the faith of the children. Sandy the Sandman replaces the nightmares of Pitch with the pleasant dreams he supplies. Barack Obama is also a purveyor of dreams which he invites all mankind to embrace.
Living The Dream
Hope - Believe - Dream
It was at Sandy Hook that Obama recently was put on display by his handlers to establish his image as guardian of the children, the one who will drive away their nightmares and cause them to dream pleasant dreams once more.
Photo Op for Obama in Sandy Hook Where He Appears as the Guardian of Childhood
The image above brings to mind the words of Christ:
“Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”
Yet this image is a charade. This is the man who, while a politician in Illinois, voted against legislation that would have required healthcare professionals to provide life support for viable babies born alive during failed abortions. He chose rather to permit the living babies to be cast aside to die as the medical staff neglected them. Obama’s voting record while in the Senate was the most liberal (immoral) in the nation. He is no guardian of children, but he will don the persona when it is useful.
II Corinthians 11:13-15
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.
It seems to me that the crime in Sandy Hook is being used by proponents of a New World Order to accomplish multiple goals. One is the erosion of gun ownership rights among private citizens. Another aim is to encourage the people to buy into the idea that the government should fulfill the role of the guardian of all children. As false apostles, deceitful workers who have donned a disguise, these servants of Satan would portray themselves as servants of righteousness and ministers of light who will keep the darkness at bay.
Observe now, the deceit of Satan. Satan’s disciples control all sides of the public discussion. The conflict between the NRA and the government is choreographed. The government causes the people to respond with great fear that their guns will be taken away, and the NRA counters with a solution that is precisely what the NWO intended. Put an armed government employee in every school in the land. Let the government arise as the guardians of childhood, and have it accomplished in such a way that it appears that the people have demanded it.
N.R.A. Envisions ‘a Good Guy With a Gun’ in Every School
By ERIC LICHTBLAU and MOTOKO RICH
WASHINGTON — After a weeklong silence, the National Rifle Association announced Friday that it wants to arm security officers at every school in the country...
“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” Wayne LaPierre, the N.R.A. vice president, said...
Mr. LaPierre said his organization would finance and develop a program called the National Model School Shield Program, to work with schools to arm and train school guards, including retired police officers and volunteers. The gun rights group named Asa Hutchinson, a former Republican congressman from Arkansas and administrator of the Drug Enforcement Agency, to lead a task force to develop the program.
Mr. LaPierre also said that before Congress moved to pass any new gun restrictions, it should “act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation” by the time students return from winter break in January.
The media has recently played up stories of former Marines who voluntarily took up station outside their children’s schools in the wake of Sandy Hook. In both California, and Nashville, Tennessee, Marines stationed themselves outside of schools to guard the children.
In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre we are seeing the rise of the guardians. It seems more than coincidence that this very month, in a town very near to where I live, a new facility has opened to train police, private guards, and other law enforcement personnel in urban warfare and disaster preparedness. They have constructed a miniature city to conduct their training. The name of the training facility - “Guardian Center.”

To close what has become a lengthier post than I anticipated, I will state that the promises of Satan and those who are his servants are deceptive. Light is promised only to bring in darkness. The promise of pleasant dreams will lead to nightmares. Consider the following comic book cover from DC Comics, bearing in mind the relation of the letters “DC” to Washington, D.C..
May you be blessed with peace and understanding in these days.
