The Mission to Kill God

“Whither is God,” he cried. “I shall tell you. We have killed him—you and I. All of us are murderers.... God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him... Friedrich Nietzsche.

The bottom line of “health reform” is not to provide health care to the poor or insurance-less. The bottom line of the stimulus bill was not to help us better provide for our families. The bottom line of the auto industry bailout (takeover) was not to save jobs. The bottom line of the 32 unelected, government appointed Czars (any person exercising great authority or power in a particular field— is not to better oversee American interests. The bottom line of the Banks bailout (takeover) is not to provide Americans with better mortgages. The bottom line in the White House’s quest to silence conservative radio and constantly bombast Fox News (overwhelmingly the most watched and highly rated cable news network) is not because they want the media to be “fair.” Indeed, even as we march closer and closer towards a socialistic agenda in this country, neither socialism nor communism is the bottom line. It’s quite simple, really: the Prince of this World—Satan, not Obama—wants God taken out, and President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Dick Durbin, are the hired guns.

Nietzsche had interest in a “dead” God and said “I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time.” The Democrats are interested in a dead God because as long as He is lifted up, praised, and worshipped, allegiance to government cannot occur. And if there is no allegiance to the King, there will be no allegiance to the Prince—of this world. Many Democrats and Liberals say they are tired of being accused of trying to advance a socialistic agenda—well I’m tired of them crying about what is obvious. If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a friggin’ duck! Karl Marx was very clear that God and Christianity could not coexist in a communistic society. At least he was forthright. He advocated government control of everything, so people could not be allowed to have allegiance to a God who stood against the principles of this government system.

This is where we are heading. This is where President Obama, the Devil’s tool, is leading us. I know, I know, I am such an ignorant, simplistic, fundamentalist.

I wonder if God’s people will just sit idly by, not even saying anything, as they witness the murder of God in the United States. I guess we have more important things to do, and I supposed many of us still are aligned with the political system that assaults Christianity every single day. REVIVE US O LORD!

Obama Honors the Lord, Godliness, Biblical Truth!

President Obama, a self-proclaimed Christian, declared June 2009 to be the “Lord, Godliness, and Biblical Truth” month. In his White House Speech, he said “LGBT Americans have made, and continue to make, great and lasting contributions that continue to strengthen the fabric of American society.” He said, “I am proud to be the first President to appoint openly LGBT candidates to Senate-confirmed positions in the first 100 days of an Administration.”

He proclaimed: “I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2009 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.” Oops! What?! Is that what he meant by the LGBT community? No wonder he calls himself a “fierce advocate of equality for gay men and lesbians.” He did say, after all, that he does “not agree that homosexuality is immoral.” Why should Christians align themselves with the Bible anyway? It’s just a book, right?

It grieves me how he disregards and belittles Christians who hold the biblical view. It is clear that homosexuality is condemned in Scripture. The Apostle Paul declared that those who practice homosexuality, along with other offenders, “will not inherit the kingdom of God" (I Corinthians 6:9; 10). For the sake of their souls, people should know this truth, not have it ignored or rationalized away. Jesus said, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh” (Matthew 19:5, Mark 2:3). Moses wrote, “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable” (Leviticus 18:22). Do you need the original Hebrew to understand that?

Obama goes on to criticize us ignoramuses: “there are still fellow citizens, perhaps neighbors or even family members and loved ones, who still hold fast to worn arguments and old attitudes.” I hate it when my president calls me stupid because I adhere to the truth of Scripture. When it came to promoting the agenda of men who have sex with other men, individuals who practice sodomy, women who sleep with other women, and individuals who alter their genitalia, the president celebrated hosting a gathering of 200 prominent homosexuals in the White House. When it came to the National Day of Prayer, Obama ended President Bush’s policy of marking that event in the White House and giving it national prominence. He did not find national prayer worthy of recognition observance by him.

How long will we accept that what Jesus and the Bible say, doesn’t matter? How will we rationalize to our children that Jesus is a liar—because the president says so. How long?

He'll bring them death - and they will love him for it!

In “Gladiator,” Senator Gracchus understood of the new President…uh, Emperor: “He will bring them death, and they will love him for it.” He called the ignorant populace, the “Roman mob,” who would watch their new leader “take away their freedom, and still they'll roar.” It’s as if he was prophesying of today’s American mob so enamored with their hallowed President that they ignore current events, and are mesmerized by the liberal media who’s daily Obama admonition is, “O come let us adore him.”

The Obama death stimulus plan is very much in line with his Proverbs 17:15 worldview of acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent. The Lord specifically calls this paradigm DETESTABLE. “OBAMA LIES—WHO DIES?” The innocent die, and according to scripture, the Lord takes this all very serious. At the beginning of His revelation of the law, in Exodus, He admonishes, “Do not kill the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked.” This is God’s order. Of course, the mission of the Prince of this World is to thwart and distort God’s order. So when God commanded obedience from Adam and Eve, the devil deceived them. [“THE DEVIL LIED—WHO DIED?] Man went from innocence to a state of condemnation. And we should realize that sin affects us on a national level as well, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)

I’m aware that I am making a serious charge here against the President of the United States. President Obama’s policies will ultimately result in the death of the innocent. So, God will bless us because…?

Many of the initiatives and policies of the Obama administration bring death to innocent parties, and refuge to those who are guilty. If you want to deduce what Barack Obama’s position is on any number of issues, just ask yourself: “Could this result in the death of innocent people?” If “yes,” there is a good possibility the President supports that initiative.

  • The Obama administration is pursuing stricter gun laws. (Sounds obviously noble, right?) For those who need clarification, this means that legitimate gun users (law enforcement, hunters, etc.) would have a harder time obtaining a firearm. Now, the criminals who actually use these weapons for crime and murder, would not be affected by legislation because, as I have witnessed in my own “hood” growing up, thugs don’t go to legitimate gun shops brandishing ID to obtain their "glocks." The result of strict gun control legislation will be that the “bad” guys will gain an advantage.
  • According to a report in the Washington Times—hardly a conservative paper—the Obama-ites are quietly taking steps to shut down a program that would qualify commercial pilots to carry firearms in order to protect against possible terrorism. “Instead, it is using the money to hire additional field inspectors to help discipline pilots who step out of line.” This pilot training initiative was a $2 million program. I guess so called stimulus items such as $98 million for a polar icebreaker - always one of my concerns when I ride the Circle Line - are much more important. They seem concerned that armed pilots might actually protect innocent passengers. We wouldn't want that, would we?
  • The F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II are new jet fighters that are supposed to replace the aging F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon. This would mean continual American air superiority. The Obama administration has made it clear it will veto any defense bill that includes money for these aircrafts. Opponents argue, “Next-generation tanker and bomber decisions today will have tremendous impact on our security in the future,” said one senior Defense official. Democratic Congressman Barney Frank, Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, agrees with the president that the F-22 is “an example of unnecessary military spending.” Bottom-line: we would be less safe and our enemies would be better equipped as we eliminate what Frank calls "unnecessary waste."
  • The Conscience Clause protects doctors and faith-based hospitals from performing procedures that violate their beliefs. Basically, if I am a doctor that opposes abortion, I am not forced to conduct one. Simple. Right? However, the Obama administration is moving to repeal the "conscience clause.” What is their friggin’ obsession with killing babies?!? So now I could be criminalized because I am opposed to killing babies? CNN Reports: “The Obama administration plans to reverse a regulation from late in the Bush administration allowing health-care workers to refuse to provide services based on moral objections, an official said Friday. The Provider Refusal Rule was proposed by the Bush White House in August and enacted on January 20, the day President Barack Obama took office. It expanded on a 30-year-old law establishing a "conscience clause" for "health-care professionals who don't want to perform abortions."
  • President Obama issued an executive order that overturned President Bush's policy and opened the floodgates for funding more EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH, that actually creates an incentive to create and destroy human embryos. “They actually encourage scientists to destroy preborn human life, courtesy of $10 billion in federal stimulus money…The regulations virtually guarantee that many more living human embryos will be destroyed for research,’ said Carrie Gordon Earll, senior bioethics analyst for Focus on the Family. ‘This policy also creates a tax-dollar incentive for scientists to destroy human embryos.’" Why is this administration so hell bent on destroying life. What manner of evil is this?
  • All this crap - sorry, STUFF - despite recent breakthroughs in adult stem cell research which should really make the embryonic stem cells controversy a thing of the past. “The ethical dilemma [of embryonic stem cell research]can be bypassed altogether if adult mammalian cells are reprogrammed to form iPS, which are cells almost identical to those from embryonic stem cells but which come from adult tissue instead of embryos, and the same results can be obtained.” [] Adult stem cells already treat over 70 diseases. Embryonic stem cells? In 25 years so far, NONE. NADA. Yet Obama is forcing tax payers to fund it. The only real result here will be death of innocent life.
  • One day after the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Obama has signed an order to lift the Mexico City policy, a Reagan-era policy that prohibits taxpayer funds from going to organizations that promote or perform abortions overseas. What really, is their friggin’ obsession with killing babies?!? “The Mexico City policy was considered by many to be one of the most effective pro-life policies of the Bush and Reagan administrations. International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), one of the most pro-abortion organizations in the world, told the BBC today that under the Bush administration, thanks to the Mexico City Policy, the organization had lost more than $100m in funding.” [ 1/23/09]
  • “Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush all refused to fund the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) because the organization helps China execute its one-child policy. But Barack Obama, like Bill Clinton before him, has pledged to reverse the course of his Republican predecessor and fund the UNFPA. […] Apparently, if thousands of Chinese women are forced to abort their unborn children—and baby girls, in particular, are targeted for death—well that's just collateral damage.” [Weekly Standard] What is their friggin’ obsession with killing babies?!?
  • President Obama selected Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to lead the Health and Human Services Department. “There is nobody in America that is more radically sold out to the abortion lobby than Kathleen Sebelius.” [CitizenLink] The pro-abortion governor is in a position to profoundly influence federal and state policies on abortion, rights of conscience, bioethics and end-of-life issues. She is also instrumental in distributing federal funding to abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood. “Appointing someone who is the most pro-abortion governor in this country to be the person in charge of health care for our entire country is really just outrageous,” said Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of Americans United for Life. She has said herself that “certain inalienable rights are not applied in utero." What is their friggin’ obsession with killing babies?!?
  • The President did not invite one single prolife health care advocate to his 2009 White House conference on health care, although it was chock full of pro-abortion advocates.
    Obama’s choice for deputy attorney general is David Ogden. Ogden opposes restrictions on abortion and pornography, and has represented Playboy and Penthouse in court. In a brief he filed before the U.S. Supreme Court supporting child pornographer Stephen Knox, who possessed sexually explicit videos of children, Ogden argued that because the children's genitalia were partially covered by clothing, such exploitation is protected by the First Amendment. "It's very disappointing that the U.S. Senate would confirm [Ogden] who has such a long record of both pro-abortion, pro-death, and a casual attitude towards pornography and protecting minors when it comes to abortion." Tom McClusky, vice president of government affairs at FRC Action
  • Obama describes himself as a “fierce advocate of equality for gay men and lesbians.” Obama will likely be the first major candidate for president to support same-sex marriage, even though he states he believes marriage should be between a man and a woman. If only words and actions met. “Obama opposes a federal constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He opposes the federal Defense of Marriage Act that prevents states from having to recognize same-sex marriages from other states. And he supports activist judges of the sort who find the California court’s reasoning congenial.” Rich Lowery, NRO Editor, May 23, 2008 “We’ve elected probably the most pro-gay president in history; he’s very good on the issues…” said Steven Elmendorf, a gay Democratic lobbyist. Sexual perversion leads to death (cf. Sodom and Gomorrah). Innocent children suffer when God’s design is perverted. Innocent children are being taught the abomination of homosexuality is normal and morally acceptable. That makes God out to be a liar. Innocent children will have to read books like “King and King,” a children’s book (ages 4-8) where two male princes are married and even kiss in the book. This is already being given out in some schools. Innocent children will have to endure sex education classes accompanied by homosexual themes. Innocent children will not have the opportunity of having both a mom and a dad. “Sin…leads to death.”James 1:15

    I have to stop writing. This is already pretty long. But you see some examples of what I mean when I charge that the policies president Obama lead to the death of innocent entities. I did not even go into closing a prison that houses terrorists and letting them lose to cause further harm to innocents and many other issues. I am just trying to point out that we are headed in a very wrong direction, and I pray that God’s people especially, worship and adore Jesus alone, who is the Truth. I pray that those who call themselves Christians will strive to protect the innocent. "I have sinned," he said, "for I have betrayed innocent blood." Judas.

What Black Christians Voted For (B)

I saw a black man hanging from a tree with a noose around his neck. His young son stood there crying and desperately calling out to his father. Even now, I feel like crying thinking of that scene from Mississippi Burning. I am not evaluating the movie here that was based, at least in part, on actual events. It upsets me a great deal to think of the racial horror carried out against Blacks in this country—and quite frankly, against all of us. Frankly, the movie helps me appreciate the fact that a black man—albeit ½ Anglo—is now the President of the United States. A dear Christian brother of mine expressed how emotional the election of Barack Obama made him feel, especially when he thought about his father and grandfather and their civil struggles. I could appreciate that and I thank God that we are at a place where an African American, or woman, or even a Puerto Rican like me—Malta and tostones in the White House?—could be President of the U.S.

In my previous entry, I noted that In California, 70% of black voters, voted for Proposition 8 on Election Day. Californians, largely due to the black vote, chose to ban same sex marriage. Gallop reports that up to 99% of black Americans voted for our current President. Just three days after becoming our nation’s leader, President Obama signed an executive order called the "Mexico City policy," which reverses a ban on funding international groups that provide abortions. Oh…there goes that divisive, Evangelical, Right Wing, ‘A’ word again! A.P. reports, "Obama signed it quietly, without coverage by the media, late on Friday afternoon, a contrast to the midday signings with fanfare of executive orders on other subjects earlier in the week." Review: President Obama signed an order that provides international funding for abortions, using mine, and your, tax dollars. Review 2: “President Obama signed an executive order today reversing the ban that prohibits funding to international family planning groups that provide abortions, as first reported by ABC News."

There have been 49,551,703 abortions (the killing of a person being formed in the womb) in the US alone, since 1973. In Suction Aspiration, the most common method of abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, a vacuum suction, 29 times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner, tears the fetus and placenta into small pieces which are sucked through the tube into a bottle and discarded. I won’t even go into partial birth abortion which is estimated at ten per day in the U.S. When President Clinton left office, there were 1,608,600 reported abortions that year alone; 1,287,000 now as President Bush passes the torch—the lowest level since 1974. The partial birth ban, which President Clinton repeatedly vetoed, but President Bush signed into law, will likely not get off its feet under the current president of “Hope.” This has nothing to do with being a black or white or purple President. Ironically, I often hear how we are to rescue the “oppressed” and how Barack Obama is just the man for the job, because…well….because…um…just because! In fact last September he said “There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.” I suppose he aims to correct this. Amos, like other biblical prophets, condemned people, who oppressed people. God, through Amos, condemned the nation of Ammon because “he ripped open the pregnant women of Gilead.” I would say that a baby being “ripped” in their mother’s womb would consider themselves to be oppressed. Wouldn’t you? God promises to judge a nation that condones such detestable practices. “Obama promised Planned Parenthood that one of his first priorities as President would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), which allows for taxpayer funding of abortion, overrules all state regulation of abortion, and could force Catholic and other faith-based hospitals to provide abortion services that are contrary to their mission.” He made this remarkable statement last year: “...I've got two daughters; 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. No further commentary is needed.

Is this what you voted for? Or perhaps you only voted for the “black” part, or the “change” part, or the “hope” part, but not the abortion part. Maybe you thought the abortion part was just an inconvenience; Just another distracting wedge issue. After all, what’s really at stake are things like global warming—currently referred to as climate change, since it’s been one of coldest winters in recent memory. is “the official web site of the White House and President Barack Obama.” It says that our new President “will make preserving women's rights under Roe v. Wade a priority in his Administration. He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's decision in that case.” Mother Theresa made some powerful statements about abortion: "What is taking place in America," she said, "is a war against the child. And if we accept that the mother can kill her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another." "Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants." "It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."

Our new President has also posted on the White House website his plan to move the gay rights agenda forward. Focus on The Family and others comment, "This is the most bold and comprehensive pro-homosexual, abortion-friendly administration agenda we've seen." President Obama opposes a ban on same-sex marriages and wants to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). DOMA provides: “The Federal Government may not treat same-sex relationships as marriages for any purpose, even if concluded or recognized by one of the states.” Obama states he gives his full support to the Lesbian Gay Bi-sexual and Transgender community. Evidently, based on how African Americans voted in California, most of them do not agree with the President. Will they stand on the side of the Bible and continue to fight for what they believe is right, or will they dismiss it with a holy, “Whatever!”? I really hope not. I choose to believe people will eventually stand for what is right, especially if they claim to live according to the Bible that includes evidence of God ordained life in the womb: “When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb,” (Luke 1:41) and “For he did not kill me in the womb, with my mother as my grave,” (Jer. 20:17) and "This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb” (Isa. 44:24). Could people honestly ignore the oppression of 1.2 million babies per year so that they could delight in the fact that we have a black or charming or young President? Incidentally, if that wasn’t a human baby, leaping in Elizabeth’s womb, what was it exactly? Or is this question above your “pay grade” to answer?

Openly-gay Bishop Gene Robinson who lives with his male lover, was Obama’s choice to open inaugural weekend. He prayed: “Bless us with anger—at discrimination, at home and abroad, against refugees and immigrants, women, people of color, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.” The main sermon, given by Rev. Sharon Watkins: “She and her church have not taken a stand on gays, but they are “incredibly diverse politically, theologically, and socially,” and “her appeal is that she delivers a message of unity and inclusivity and tolerance and hope.” Her church has not taken a stand on gays, but Jesus has; Love them, but reject the sin. Not a very difficult concept to understand. Also on the high profile inaugural prayer invitee list was Dr. Ingrid Mattson, President of the Islamic Society of North America, who “heads an Islamic group named by federal prosecutors as a co-conspirator in a terrorism-fundraising trial in Texas.” Interesting, no? A Hindu woman priest was also among six religious leaders—including some Evangelicals—who were specially invited to participate in the National Prayer Service.

Obama thought that the following text from Leviticus was too extreme: “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable.” Do you as well, Christian person? Maybe we should each have customizable Bibles where we could pick and choose what we want to include as “acceptable.”

There are many issues that President Obama has already put into action, or will put into action, that are contrary to the Christian faith. Now let’s be honest. Forget Bush—you all do know he is no longer President, right? Get over the fact that Obama is black—i.e. stop being racist. Was it not Martin Luther King who said, “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”?

I will end with more of Dr. King’s words: “I am not interested in power for power's sake, but I'm interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.” May Christians support what is moral, right, and good.

What Black Christians Voted For (A)

In California, 70% of black voters, voted for Proposition 8 on Election Day. This was the amendment reversing California’s obnoxious Supreme Court ruling allowing for gay marriage. Californians voted to ban same sex marriage. The statisticians confirm that this amendment could not have passed without the back vote, who as one news source declared, “voted their religion, not their political party.” Blacks who voted were clear on what was at stake, and voted in a way that expressed their moral values. It wasn’t a black or white issue, but the choice was black and white—clear.

Gallup reports that 99% of blacks voted for Barack Obama, for president. I find it quite interesting that the majority of blacks in California voted against gay marriage, but voted for a man who will support pro gay marriage legislation, and as he has already pronounced, will select Supreme Court judges that favor gay marriage.

We could delve into all the reasons and theories for this, but needless to say, there is a contradiction here. Now, this is not a knock on black Americans. The same contradiction could be seen in all people groups of our country. What makes it more pronounced for blacks is the high ratio for which they voted for Obama. 99%! Again, black Americans had clear data when it came to proposition 8. When it came to B. H. Obama, it seems that like the rest of the country, facts did not matter a whole lot. What they had was information from a liberal media that was in love with Barack. They would have had to dig a little further if they wanted a clearer assessment of the huge choice they had to make. Quite frankly, there is evidence that many blacks voted for Obama solely because he’s black. I am not going to argue the validity of that one way or another, what I hope for is this: I hope that should we witness clearly immoral positions being implemented by this President, that black Christians especially, would rise up and shout and say, “Stop it, Mr. President!” I pray that should we experience four years of a president that has little regard for biblical truth and encourages sinful acts, that these black Christians reevaluate their choice, and vote Obama out of office, as they take a stand for righteousness and morality as they did with Proposition 8.

Obama Daschles Hopes of Pro-Lifers

From Tony Perkins: Washington Update -- November 19, 2008
Breaking news this afternoon suggests that President-elect Obama is unlikely to govern from the middle. By appointing former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D) as U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services, the 44th President provided a frightening glimpse of his new Cabinet. According to Politico, "Daschle was also considered for health care czar in the White House, but the transition team decided he could be more effective with Secretary in front of his name." As Majority Leader, Daschle was a notorious opponent of every pro-life measure. He blocked the partial-birth abortion ban, voted for taxpayer-funded military abortions, and supported a measure that would have forced Americans to pay for the distribution of the morning-after pill to young school girls. Apart from his extreme political ideology, the selection of Daschle is even more troubling because the South Dakotan lacks any experience in the public health arena. To most Americans, who thought this election was about "change," these appointments must seem incredibly ironic. So far, the new Obama administration has only managed to change the titles of the same old liberal leadership.

Why Wait?

From from Tony Perkins: Washington Update
November 12, 2008

"Back in July of 2007, Barack Obama announced at a Planned Parenthood banquet that signing FOCA was his first priority: "Well, the first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. ...On this fundamental issue, I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield." With almost full control of Congress, Obama will be expected to live up to his promise as payback for the abortion community's support. If successful, the newly expanded majority would abolish over 300 pro-life laws and restrictions -- even reinstating partial-birth abortion."

"I'm Sorry"

As I prayed this morning, I couldn’t get past “…Hallowed be thy name,” before I grieved and lamented just short of weeping profoundly.

“God, forgive me. You are Holy. You are to be hallowed—revered. Yet, your church is not very much like you…is it? I’m sorry for my prayerlessness. I’m sorry for my indifference. I’m sorry for my greed. I’m sorry for my lusts. I’m sorry for my ungodliness, and for grieving your Holy Spirit.”

“Father, your church is stained and blemished. May we earnestly repent! We need you to forgive us, and REVIVE US!”

“My God…MY GOD! Renew a steadfast Spirit in us. As our Pastor admonished us last weekend, we NEED your Holy Spirit. We are barren and empty and weak—without you.”
“I am so glad that you are enthroned forever and that you never change. Thank you for mercy. Thank you for grace.”

“God, some of us celebrate victory this morning with the homosexual and pro-abortion community. We saw it more appropriate to align ourselves with Bruce Springsteen, Alec Baldwin, Whoopee Goldberg, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Louis Farrakhan, Paris Hilton, Al Sharpton, Oprah Winfrey, and Madonna, than with James Dobson, Ed Young, Ravi Zacharias, Josh McDowell, Chuck Swindoll, Michael W. Smith, Benjamin Netanyahu (Israel), etc., when many of us voted. For some reason, we are rejoicing along with Planned Parenthood, and the Black Panthers. We are glad, along with many of our enemies in the Middle East and abroad, even as they themselves continue to plot our demise, and plan our destruction.”

“God, our hope was never in John McCain or Sarah Palin, in Barack Obama or Joe Biden. Our hope has always been, and continues to be in you. Forgive us if we’ve acted differently.”

“It concerns me that the people who are called by your name, considered to be the salt of the earth, the children of light, defenders of the word…are often times pathetic. I am pathetic. I don’t fight for righteousness as I should. I don’t pray with the passion and the consistency and the depth that I should. I need to pray for my president and president elect and need to do it for real. I refuse to be like the rest of the world.”

“Quite frankly, I’m reminded of Eugene Petersen’s paraphrase of Isaiah one: (10) 'Listen to my Message, you Sodom-schooled leaders. Receive God's revelation, you Gomorrah-schooled people.’ This is us Lord. Your church is so much like the world. Following the same passions, excited by the same things, pursuing the same causes. Isaiah continues to record God’s words in verses 13-17, ‘Quit your worship charades. I can't stand your trivial religious games: Monthly conferences, weekly Sabbaths, special meetings—meetings, meetings, meetings—I can't stand one more! Meetings for this, meetings for that. I hate them! You've worn me out! I'm sick of your religion, religion, religion, while you go right on sinning. When you put on your next prayer-performance, I'll be looking the other way. No matter how long or loud or often you pray, I'll not be listening.’”

We talk a lot of trash Lord. When it comes down to it; we are selfish and we love the world more than we care to admit. GOD REVIVE US. PROTECT US. USE US. I believe the wake-up call is truly about to sound. History has shown us that Christianity thrives under persecution, and the church becomes invincible when it is purged. Even so, come Lord Jesus!

Working Men, Obama, Christians, Devil, Unite!

A spectre is haunting America—the spectre is Obamamania.

As Christ-like as Senator Obama feigns to be, his statements, associations, and positions, make it clear that an Obama presidency will actually progress towards eradicating the one true God out from our national conscience. “Oh stop being so over dramatic, Joe!” Am I really exaggerating?

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels concluded their masterpiece of the philosophy and grounds for communism—The Communist Manifesto—with this ambitious challenge: Working Men of All Countries, Unite! Today, we actually have Christians in cahoots with The enemy in removing any influence of God from our society. If you are a Christian voting for Barack Hussein Obama, I mean you.

What grieves me the most is not so much that liberal Obama may become our next president, it is that Christians, (CHRISTIANS!) refuse to even consider looking at facts or hearing any contrary opinion, because quite frankly, it will “blow their spot”—expose them. Solomon said, “One’s pride will bring him low,” and in this case (election), it may bring the whole country downward. Unfortunately, this is nothing new for God’s finicky people. “They said to him…now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have. [T]he LORD told [Samuel]... it is not you they have rejected, but they have rejected me…but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do…But the people refused to listen to Samuel. ‘No!’ they said. "We want a king over us. Then we will be like all the other nations…” This is the perennial biblical illustration of “be careful what you ask for.” Being unique is the norm for the people of God. Israel was unique as the chosen people of God, as are Christians. In fact the Bible identifies us as “peculiar.” The United States has also been “different” throughout its history. Not a Theocracy, per se, but certainly a nation built on biblical principles; a country whose people have not been afraid to call on the name of the Lord for salvation. A country that boasts even on its currency, “in God we trust,” in its pledge of allegiance, “one nation under God,” and who’s very Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” There are people in our country today who feel that we too should be like other nations—namely those of Europe. In 1835, in his De la démocratie en Amérique, a social and political study of the United States, Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville wrote, “the religious atmosphere of the country was the first thing that struck me on arrival in the United States.” Mr. De Tocqueville was infatuated with the strength of our Democracy. It wasn’t perfect, but it was great, and it worked.

Here is what Marx said: “My object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism.” He said, “Religion is the opium of the masses.” He said, “Since only what is material is perceptible, knowable, nothing is known of the existence of God.” Communism/Socialism and God cannot mix. Either government rules the people—or God does. We cannot serve two masters. I do not believe that Senator Obama is a Communist. In fact, I believe he thinks that his positions are best for our country. When he says, “When we spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody,” this is exactly Marxism’s “redistribution of wealth.” This is Socialism. Where I give credit to Marx and Lenin, is that you know exactly where they stood, while Senator Obama plays games. This is not a game. This is about the removal of God. This is not about the economy; it is about the removal of God. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” This is the bottom-line here. Obama says he is a Christian and believes in God, but finds certain scriptures to be too extreme, and certain biblical teachings to be irrelevant to our modern society. Do you believe the same thing?

We have enough evidence, don’t we? His Pastor of 20 years preaches, “God Damn America!” His friend Bill Ayers (whom Obama lied about) terrorized our nation and hates America. Another Obama influence was Saul Alinsky: "A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by…the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order…the political paradise of communism." If Obama becomes our president, will we be a Communist nation a year from now? No. What I am saying, is that it is evident that we will head in the direction where God will be more and more irrelevant in our country, and it is absolutely regretful that Christians will be part of the movement. Christians will be able to cry aloud with Nietzsche: “God is dead; and we killed Him.”

The Communist Manifesto ends with this: “Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution.” I say to us all, let us all tremble at the Obama revolution.

A spectre is haunting Europe – the spectre of communism.

A spectre is haunting America—the spectre is Obamamania.

Obama and the Children of Light

I was going to title this entry something like, “Christians Should Give a Damn!” Or, “What the Hell Is Wrong With God’s People?” But I thought that might be too strong.

Speaking of curses, Deuteronomy 28 speaks of the curses on the nation that does not acknowledge God’s principles. It says in its opening verses, “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands…the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come upon you…if you obey the Lord your God: You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.” This is reminiscent of Katharine L. Bates lyrics which most of us used to sing as children—when it was still in vogue and permissible to do so. “America, America, God shed His grace on thee.” We understood that the prosperity, security, and strength of our nation, was an endowment from God. We didn’t earn it by being smart or sophisticated. We pursued being in right standing with Him and adhering to His principles. We tried to do the right thing. This is supposedly what Christians throughout the centuries have tried to do. Christians were never perfect—from day one (Cf. Ananias and Sapphira, Paul and Barnabas, Onesimus the Slave). Our country has certainly never been perfect. No Presidential candidate has ever been perfect. But once upon a time, Christians used to value morality. Remember those days? When the words of Ephesians 5 actually mattered, “For of this you can be sure: No immoral person…has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” I heard a Christian say recently, “I don’t care about morality right now.” The insinuation being that in our present economic state, moral issues are unimportant. Imagine that attitude in the 1800’s: “Who cares about slavery? We need slaves for our economy to flourish. That’s all I care about. Now, excuse me, I have to go get ready for church.” Maybe we should have paid more attention to the almost million people who were murdered in Rwanda in the 90’s, even if it would have had a negative effect on our economy. Jesus said “You are the light of the world,” and Paul admonishes us to “live and children of light.” So we do not live as the world does. We do not think as the world does, “for the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight.” Therefore, Christians will not simply jump on the Obama band wagon without digging out the truth first. Right?

Could it be that there are Christians who actually believe that they themselves—or the President—are actually responsible for how much the nation will be blessed? You know, through our rich financial savvy. It’s no wonder that Paul calls these people in Ephesians 5, Idolaters. “In _______ we trust.” Sure, competence in leadership is crucial, but when someone says, essentially, that they don’t care about what matters to God (morality), or that some other party controls our fate, how else could I interpret that, but as idolatry? (“Obama, Obama, Obama in the highest! He will prosper us!”) Someone else said a short time ago that they could not afford this [Iraqi/Afghan] war that we are in. I am so trying to be nice and professional…but what the (HECK) kind of statement is that? (a) they can’t afford the war, but they could afford Democrats gaffs on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (b) they can’t afford the war, but they could afford higher taxes to make the government bigger (c) they can’t afford the war, but they could afford to have our president sit with those who are trying to destroy us and our economy (“Please, Mr. Amadinajab, be nice. Pretty please. We’ll be your friend.”) (d) they can’t afford the war, but who cares about the hundreds of thousands of people that Saddam Hussein can no longer torture and kill—because we went to war and kicked his…butt. Why should Christians care about that? Why should we care about any of these things when we could have a smooth talking, four (whole) year senator, former dazzling community organizer, run our country?

Yes, Christians. Let us pray. Let’s pray hard that God’s mercy and grace continue to shine on this nation. And whatever the outcome of this election, I pray that the true people of God honor Him and His word by truly seeking truth. How sad it would be for Christians to think and be just like the world? In futility.

Paul: “Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes…”

Colin Cleanse

Will Colin Powell ever “come clean”?

On Meet the Press this Sunday, former Secretary of State, and former army General, Colin Powell endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for president. Democrats are loving this. Others are confused. Obama is elated.

I do respect Mr. Powell’s biography, but I must say my respect level has dropped a lot—a whole lot. Not only because he is supporting Barack Obama, but because his reasons are shallow and…well…stupid, quite frankly. I would expect a lot more from a man of his stature. Had he given more compelling reasons, substantial insight, or just better information—as opposed to the same status quo stuff we have been hearing for months—I could respect that, and possibly even look forward to it. Instead I kept thinking: “You’re kidding me, right? You’re not really serious? What are you getting for this bull load?”

Let’s look at some of his statements off the Meet the Press website at MSNBC. I will try my best to be reverent.

“[H]e said McCain’s choices in the last few weeks—especially his selection of Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his vice presidential running mate—had raised questions in his mind about McCain’s judgment.” The poor judgment claim is a losing argument. Politically, as both Democrats and Republicans know, McCain’s pick of Governor Palin was brilliant. It completely revitalized his Party, excited his base (me included), angered the opposition (a sure sign of a good pick), increased his poll numbers, and has made her one of the most popular woman in the country (even Saturday Night Lives’ ratings were up 76% with her appearance last Saturday—it was SNL’s best ratings in 14 years). Interestingly, she actually parallels Obama in some ways. Here is this relative unknown bursting onto the political scene and taking the country by storm. McCain picked a young, attractive, charismatic, truly conservative, Christian, woman (hello Hillary supporters). It was a political grand slam. No bad judgment here, General. Further, she has more executive experience than Obama (or Joe Biden), who have…let’s see…NONE. Powell said, “I don’t believe [Palin] is ready to be president of the United States.” Really? Then Obama isn’t either; and neither is foot-in-mouth Joe Biden whose executive office aspirations have been marked by regularly losing elections and primaries of his own party. Obama became a US Senator in 2004. By this time, Palin was already a mayor for six years. She became Governor of Alaska in 2006. She was in charge of the enormous budget of one of the country’s largest and most significant energy states and she was Commander-in-Chief of that state’s National Guard. In June 2007, Palin signed a record $6.6 billion operating budget into law. At the same time, she used her veto power to make the second-largest cuts of the construction budget in state history. How many budgets has Obama signed into law? Uh…that would be NONE. It’s amazing how Democrats rag Governor Palin on lack of experience, but when Democrat Representative Geraldine Ferraro ran for Vice-President in 1984, they flaunted a NY Times editorial about her running: “Why shouldn’t a little-known woman have the same opportunity to grow? We may even be gradually elevating our standards for choosing Vice Presidential candidates.” [] The hypocrisy is obvious and shameful. Please Mr. Powell, don’t say John McCain lacked judgment here, he made an excellent choice.

“Powell also told NBC’s Tom Brokaw that he was “troubled” by Republicans’ personal attacks on Obama, especially false intimations that Obama was Muslim and the recent focus on Obama’s alleged connections to William Ayers, a co-founder of the radical ’60 Weather Underground.” I’m so sorry, but how biased and foolish could you be? You don’t think it’s important to scrutinize the relationship of a US Presidential candidate who is friends with someone who bombed the Pentagon, the U.S. Capitol, and a string of other government buildings? How is this a “personal attack?” Fascinatingly, criticizing Palin for not staying at home with her daughter is not personal? Did he criticize those on the left wearing tee-shirts that read: “SARAH PALIN IS A C*** (slang for vagina)!” Sorry, but this is crap! How about when Senator Obama himself alluded to Sarah Palin as a “pig?” He said, “You could put lipstick on a pig…,” in obvious reference to her hockey moms as pit-bulls with lipsticks comment during her convention speech. Both camps have implemented personal attacks and Obama has been vicious and very personal. Why isn’t Powell criticizing Obama? This is a hypocritical, unjustifiable claim, and certainly no reason to sdefend an endorsement.

“Stressing that Obama was a lifelong Christian, Powell denounced Republican tactics that he said were insulting not only to Obama but also to Muslims. “The really right answer is what if he is [a Muslim]?” What if he is? See, here’s the thing, Mr. Powell… We know that not all Muslims are bad; however, Muslims have been responsible for most of the terrorism against our country and allies in recent years, including 911. (You probably remember that day because you were secretary of state at the time.) I am not saying that Obama is a Muslim, but obviously, that would be a very big deal to the people of this country—especially if you lie about it. In fact, this is why you yourself, Mr. Powell, are stressing that he is a lifelong Christian. I too am a Christian. I know the tenets and essential doctrines of the Christian faith, and I know that simply saying that you are a Christian doesn’t cut it. It is very, very difficult to reconcile Obama’s voting past and current positions, with biblical Christianity. Obama’s abortion voting record can absolutely not reconcile with the same Bible that boasts of how God created individuals in the womb and even named and commissioned them while there. Obama feels some parts of the Bible are too extreme and not relevant for today. Oh really, Senator? That’s nice. You just pick the ones you like and you let us know. OK?

Powell is disturbed at how the Republicans are attacking Obama, “I look at these kinds of approaches to the campaign, and they trouble me.” Evidently, it was OK when Democrats Hillary and Joe Biden were running against him and disparaging him. Biden said that Obama was not ready to be President (of course, neither is he): “The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job-training.” Even Bill Clinton complained that Obama’s campaign was a “fantasy.”

Obama said, “Here is what I can say for certain: He [Powell] will have a role as one of my advisers.” It was Powell who showed video to the world proving that Iraq had WMD. It was Powell who defended going to war. Mr. Obama, I thought you said that that was “poor judgment.” Now you want to make him an “advisor” to give you bad advice? You also strongly criticized Biden for voting for the war, and now you talk about his great foreign policy experience and judgment. I have to conclude that you yourself either have poor judgment, or lie regularly as a matter of expediency.

Powell “said, he became ‘concerned’ that ‘in the case of Mr. McCain, he was a little unsure how to deal with the economic problems.’ Funny, I am reading this on the day after Chief Executive Magazine released a survey revealing that 74% of America’s top business leaders fear “an Obama presidency would be disastrous for the country.” Some CEOs worried that if implemented, “[Obama’s] programs would bankrupt the country within three years.” My point isn’t that anybody really knows what will happen. Only that the statement made by General Powell is not very significant. Why sound as if you actually know what you are talking about when it comes to the economy, General?

Powell also noted that he “would have difficulty with two more conservative appointments to the Supreme Court.” This is actually a clincher for me. This is possibly the most significant reason why Christians should not support an Obama presidency. Powell may be on the Republican role, but he certainly isn’t conservative and does not adhere to conservative principles. Don’t be misled. You can continue to say how you think Obama is new, and fresh, and speaks well, but there is no way for you to reconcile Christian principles with the immorality that will be activated from an Obama presidency. If I am wrong…please advise. Don’t say you are for the biblical model of marriage and family and then contradict yourself by voting for Obama. Or at least admit that you are lying to yourself and what you really care about are other things about Obama. Like the fact that he is black or that you are simply hopping aboard the Obama bandwagon.

Powell said, “We need a president with transformational qualities.” This does not a good president make. Any well thinking, reasonable person, understands that transformational qualities in a leader may be good (see Lincoln, Kennedy, Churchill), or bad (see Hussein, Hitler, Castro). Powell knows better than this and this type of “reaching” only proves that there is little of significance that anybody is able to produce to justify having Barack Obama becoming our next president.

There are other reasons—real reasons—that Colin Powell is endorsing Obama. Some feel it’s because Obama is black. Powell has praised this fact in the past. Perhaps it’s because he wants a job in his administration. I don’t know. But I have to believe that a man as smart and informed as Colin Powell has reasons that are more genuine or significant than the “mess” he is offering. I just have to believe that. Once again, I respect you Sir General, but please come clean…please.

“O peoples, nations and men of every language: As soon as you hear the sound of…all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold...Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.” (From Daniel 3)

I work in Downtown Brooklyn...which actually has some similarities to Babylon. Everywhere I turn are Obama tee-shirts, Obama hats—Obama this’s, Obama thats. Banners, books, undies, candy—and just a lot of other paraphernalia. Truth be told, I would be afraid to walk in that neighborhood with a NObama, or McCain/Palin shirt. One gentleman in particular has an Obama stand just outside the door of my building where people gather to savor and purchase ObamaWear. All kinds of stuff praising Obama, and I pity the fool who doesn’t pay homage at this hub of the image of Obama.

Am I in awe of Obamamania? Yes. Yes, I am. I am beside myself of how so many devotees he has accumulated without having (a) parted the Red Sea (b) served in any executive office (c) freed any slaves (d) led any marches in Birmingham or otherwise (e) been in the military (f) hit any game winning homeruns. He hasn’t even sung with Julio Iglesias or Menudo and yet, “Fainting has become common at Obama rallies. When Mr. Obama eventually takes the platform to rhythmic chants of his mantra-like slogan, ‘Yes we can, yes we can!’ fans swoon with euphoria.” As reports William Lowther from Joe Klein, veteran political commentator, adds there is “something just a wee bit creepy about the mass messianism.” Could this just be a case where the simple or unlearned are unprotected from this man’s charisma and magic? I think not. Moments after Obama accepted the nomination for president before an estimated 84,000 people, Oprah Winfrey said, "I cried my eyelashes off…I think it's the most powerful thing I have ever experienced," calling Obama's words "transcendent." I have never seen this kind of elation for a Presidential candidate since…well…ever. It makes me wonder if he walks on water. After all, Ezra Klein of the American Prospect writes that Obama’s speeches, “elevate” and “enmesh you in a grander moment, as if history has stopped…” He Continues, “He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh, over color, over despair." Um…this is not normal journalistic praise. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, called him "a leader that God has blessed us with at this time." Susan Milligan (Boston Globe) reports on “Obama worship”: “Crowds clamor to get close to him, reaching to touch him.”

Ironically, of Jesus, the true Messiah, St. John wrote that the world received him not. Jesus was mocked and scorned and deemed unacceptable by society. Indeed, he said that his kingdom is not from this world. He said, “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.” In true maverick fashion, when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were ordered to do what everybody around them did, that is, worship the image of Nebuchadnezzar, they said, “Nope. Not gonna bow, O King.” They stood by what they knew: There is one God. One Lord. One Savior of men. One who will get us through economic trials. One who will prosper us. One who will grant us peace. Begin whine phrases here: “But everybody else around them bowed!” “But all the TV stations were going to carry the bowing before the king and I don’t wanna be an odd ball! “But they were all wearing King Neb Rules robes!” The servants of God said, “If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.”

Ladies and gentlemen, my own audacious HOPE, is that the people of God never follow the lead of the world or any world leader simply because the “music plays” and everybody else hops on the bandwagon.

Fair Change

Did you read the news today, oh boy? “The nation's largest group of atheists and agnostics is suing President Bush, the governor of Wisconsin, and other officials over the federal law designating a National Day of Prayer.”[1] That’s right. The same country where a founding member, John Hancock, once called an entire state (Massachusetts) to pray “that universal happiness may be established in the world [and] that all may bow to the scepter of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole earth be filled with His glory,”[2] actually has within its borders a faction that wants to outlaw the National Day of Prayer because it creates a "hostile environment for nonbelievers, who are made to feel as if they are political outsiders." (Deeeto!) Apparently, when people gather to pray for our country’s peace, finances, God’s blessings, etc., it creates a hostile environment.

The complaints put forward by this liberal group bring to mind “The Fairness Doctrine.” This dated measure was introduced in1949 and required broadcasters to present controversial issues in balanced, equal time. The FCC eventually ruled that "the intrusion by government into the content of programming occasioned by the enforcement of [the Fairness Doctrine] restricts the journalistic freedom of broadcasters ... [and] suggested that the doctrine be deemed unconstitutional.” In all practicality, it was censorship, as government could have certain controls as to what could be “said” on the radio regarding certain political issues. Whether or not it was needed back in that day of anti-communist sentiment and hysteria (and when talk radio outlets were rarer) is not my concern for this conversation. The significance today is that many on the left (Democrats, Liberals) are anxious to reinstate it because talk radio today is filled with remarkably popular conservative programs, including some Christian programming, that challenge their ideas. Democrats and Liberals (usually one in the same) want to silence these voices because they are critical of their policies; So much for free speech. Millions of Americans freely (same root word of FREEdom in case you missed that tiny detail) tune into these programs every day. These alternative news sources and electronic town hall venues offer listeners a mutual platform and access to information that they scarcely get from the popular news media which is usually slanted way left. Conversely, Liberal (or Progressive, as they like to be called) radio programs are regularly abject failures. This, because Liberals really have little of genuine interest to share other than hate rants at Conservatives, and lies upon more lies. Not all people are as stupid as they think. They are weary of the likes of Rush Limbaugh and James Dobson presenting the truth—or at least alternate viewpoints from the mainstream liberal media. Similarly, the devil always attempts to shut down pathways to truth. He does this because he knows that if people hear the truth, it has the power to set them free.

Democrats have been trying to bring the Fairness Doctrine back since it was removed in 1987. “The Left has never gotten over the fact that it once had a media monopoly. It hates the New Media, particularly talk radio, and can't understand why so many people tune in. As Hillary Clinton once opined, ‘it must be due to some vast right-wing conspiracy.’”[3] Now, think about this: Our radio and television airwaves are available to anyone with the resources to obtain them. Any Liberal with a lot of money—and there are many of them—could simply buy a radio station or produce or sponsor radio shows that spew out anything they wish. In fact, I just found out that the DISH network is opening up, an all Obama Channel. It's called "Barack Obama's Plan for America," and is Dish channel 73. See? There are plenty of channels to go around. So instead of trying to shut up Rush and Sean, why not just produce your own anti-conservative shows? Why not open a hundred of them? Oh yeah, I forgot; because they are pathetically boring and people are not interested in them. Thus, the next best thing to do is take away the rights of those who criticize and challenge them.

In the Communist Manifesto (1848) Karl Marx and Frederick Engels wrote: “Communists openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.” Marx also wrote, “The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion.” It is obvious from that quote, that a free exchange of ideas or criticism of Government is impossible in a Communist society, whether it be from the press or the pulpit. This is why Communist societies like China, the Soviet Union, and Cuba, are marked by totalitarianism. They cannot flourish having preachers criticizing and undermining their directives, or who have a “we must obey God rather than men,” attitude (Acts 4:19, 5:29). God will rule, or human government will. Neither could Communists allow a free press to challenge what they are trying to accomplish. Communism removes freedoms, it has to, and people want to be free. Don’t you? Our own Constitution says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” Ironically and erroneously, Liberals love to make reference to the First Amendment when attempting to thwart Christian influence in our society, however, evidently, the free speech and free press part is not applicable if it challenges them.

So, come, let us reason together. What element of our government wants to silence the voice of those who are criticizing them? THIS IS VERY SERIOUS and it should make no difference what Party you support or the political positions you adhere to (unless of course you are a Communist). We are talking about our freedoms—yours and mine. How dare the government mandate what we are allowed to hear or speak about on free radio? Amazingly, publicly exhibiting works depicting Jesus as a naked woman, or of a dung-decorated, porn–embellished painting of the Virgin Mary are protected by Liberals as free-speech, even if subsidized by our PUBLIC tax dollars.

In all fairness (no pun intended), Mr. Obama has stated—at least through his spokespeople—that he would not support the Fairness Doctrine. At the same time, I am not sure I’ve ever heard a presidential candidate or his staff complain about the likes of Sean Hannity, Rush, and James Dobson, as much as Obama and his campaign has. This man does NOT like Rush and Sean and he doesn’t hide this fact. “Fifty-eight percent (58%) of likely Obama voters believe the government should make all radio and TV stations offer equal amounts of conservative and liberal commentary.”[4] Obama-ites certainly support the measure, Democratic leaders support it overwhelmingly, including speaker of the House Pelosi, and an Obama presidency will likely give us a Liberal Supreme Court. So where would the checks and balances come from? Obama votes with his Party 97% of the time and is considered the most Liberal in the Senate. President Bush has forcefully affirmed he would veto any bill that brings back the [UN]fairness Doctrine. Do you honestly think that if a Democratic sponsored bill comes across President Obama’s desk he would actually veto it?

The Serpent, AKA the Devil, did not approach Eve and say, “Hey, if you eat from this fruit, all of humanity is going to be screwed up.” Saddam Hussein did not initially tell his countrymen that he was going to torture and murder hundreds of thousands of them, he promised prosperity. Fidel Castro promised he would replace Batista’s dictatorship (who was indeed oppressive) with free elections. He also promised to end government corruption. Wrong on both counts. Currently, Barack Hussein Obama is preaching change. The Serpent brought calamitous cosmic change. Saddam (the other Hussein) also brought dreadful, vile change.
Mr. Obama, change is exactly what I’m afraid of.

"They Must Think You're Stupid"

This entry is actually reprinted from an editorial in the New York Sun newspaper this past September 11th. I am grateful that the author, Kenneth Blackwell so skillfully and adequately summarized some of the issues and concerns regarding Senator Obama. In this case, I am simply the messenger. Thanks Mr. Blackwell and NY Sun.

By Kenneth Blackwell: September 11, 2008:

On Monday, Senator Obama uttered one sentence that could haunt him until Election Day. He said of Senator McCain and Governor Palin telling voters they would bring change, "they must think you're stupid." Given his stances on the surge, social issues, and his past, Mr. Obama will regret those words.

Let's start with social issues like Second Amendment freedoms. Mr. Obama denies that he's ever supported banning handguns, right after the landmark Heller case where the Supreme Court struck down Washington D.C.'s handgun ban. When a 1996 questionnaire surfaced that had asked if Mr. Obama supported banning all handguns, his one-word written answer was "yes." He said an unnamed staffer must have filled it out without his knowledge. Then another copy surfaced — this one with his handwriting on it. He says he must not have read that particular question. Sure.

On the hot-button issue of abortion, last month saw a growing concern over Mr. Obama's opposition to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which states if an abortion is botched and a live birth results, the baby is entitled to medical care. The federal version of this law unanimously passed the U.S. Senate. However, when a version of this bill came to the Illinois Senate, Mr. Obama opposed it. When confronted last month with the fact that the federal version of this bill had been supported by the likes of Ted Kennedy and Barbara Boxer, Mr. Obama said the he would have supported the federal version. Those suggesting otherwise were lying, he said. Then it was disclosed that a second bill was introduced in the Illinois Senate, and this one was identical to the federal version. Mr. Obama opposed that bill as well. He has yet to come up with an explanation on that one.

And there are Mr. Obama's associations. Let's start with the infamous Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Mr. Obama expressed shock that Rev. Wright would say things like "God damn America" and say the American government created AIDS to commit genocide against black people. Yet he belonged to that church for 20 years. He was married by Rev. Wright, had his children baptized by him, and even took his book title from one of the good reverend's sermons.When Rev. Wright's outrageous diatribes surfaced, Mr. Obama refused to renounce him. Then when Rev. Wright repeated the same statements at the National Press Club, and Mr. Obama had clinched the nomination, suddenly he denounced him. Why? He said Rev. Wright's statements in D.C. were unlike anything he had heard before and he was shocked. But those statements had been in the news for months. Are we to believe that Mr. Obama had not read or heard any of the news for weeks? Or that he never heard anything similar in more than 20 years of listening to Rev. Wright's sermons? Hmm.

Bill Ayers is another stunner. Mr. Ayers bombed a police station and the Pentagon, and recently said he wished he had done more. He is an unrepentant terrorist, but is popular among the ultra-left in Chicago. When Mr. Obama was asked about Mr. Ayers, he implied that he barely knew him. But once again facts have surfaced. We now know that Mr. Ayers hosted a fundraiser for Mr. Obama. They served for years together on a board with only a few people, and they worked closely on financial matters during those years. Does that sound like someone he barely knows?And then we have the Iraq war. Congress authorized war against Iraq in 2002. The vote in the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate was an overwhelming bipartisan majority of 77-23. The intelligence provided to Congress was profoundly flawed, but based on the intelligence presented, Congress voted for war. That is why those voting for the war included John Kerry, John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and — yes — Joe Biden.

Yet Mr. Obama, who was in the Illinois Senate at the time and thus had no vote, opposed the war. He says that this shows his superior judgment, and that those voting for the war, like Mr. McCain, lack the judgment to be president. But his vice presidential pick Joe Biden voted for the war, and Mr. Obama says Mr. Biden has the judgment to be president. How do you reconcile that?

And finally we have the surge. Mr. Obama opposed it, saying it was doomed to fail. Yet the troop surge has succeeded brilliantly, and all but the most dedicated diehards admit it. Now Mr. Obama acknowledges that it succeeded, but does not admit his predictions of failure were wrong. How were they not wrong?

These actions have made a pattern. Mr. Obama has changed his position on numerous occasions, cannot explain why he has done so, and yet his campaign expects us to believe that he never changed his mind on any of those issues.

He must think we're stupid.
