Before you read the rest of this post, let me ask you a question:
Have you ever had a fly land on your face?
My childhood was spent in the semi-tropics, but I can honestly say that while I had to swat away mosquitoes in the summer, I had never had a fly land on my face.
But flies seem to have an affinity for certain people.
“Lord of the Flies” is the literal meaning of βεελζεβούβ, the Greek word for Beelzebub.
Beelzebub — derived from Ba‘al Zebûb, a Semitic deity worshiped in the Philistine city of Ekron — is the name of one of the seven princes of Hell. Later Christians used the name Beelzebub as a term for Satan.
Flies have an affinity for Barack Obama.
The first time the phenomenon was noted was during the 2008 presidential campaign that ended in Obama being voted into his first term of presidency.
On October 28, 2008, Los Angeles Times reporter Peter Nicholas, who had been spending (as he put it) “18 hours a day covering Obama,” recalled a creepy incident 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. He scooped up the burgers and headed back to the picnic table, as if nothing had gone wrong.”
The next “Obama and flies” incident occurred on June 16, 2009 while he was being interviewed by MSNBC in the White House. A fly kept buzzing around his head. Without a moment’s hesitation, Obama killed the fly with his hand.
On June 22, 2010, it happened again.
Obama was speaking to the press about the new Obamacare bill in the East Room of the White House, and a fly landed right on top of the left side of his mouth.
Obama also attracted a swarm of bees and a rat. See:
Sunday night, October 9, 2016, at the second presidential debate in Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, Hell’s sceptre of Lord of the Flies was passed from Barack Obama to Hillary Clinton.
This momentous supernatural event was signified by a fly landing on Hillary’s left (how appropriate) eyebrow. (H/t Heat Street)
It was not a hot, sweltering day Sunday in St. Louis, Missouri. The daytime high was 78°; the nighttime low was 43º (source), which meant that by the time the debate began at 9 p.m., the temperature should have gone down to the 60ºs.

Steve Qayle sent me thhis reminder that our Lord Jesus Christ had twice mentioned Beelzebub in Luke 11:18-26:
If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub. And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges. But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you. When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth. When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
