Wow! If the heathens can figure it out, what does that say?
Though we Christians, speaking for the ones I know who have learned to discern, knew it all along. The first obvious clue is the worship that is expended upon the man, and his outright acceptance of it. He has placed himself on God’s throne.
Second, is his lack of humility. When displayed, it is feigned and fleeting. These things tell me, he does not know Jesus.
And third, there is no possible way he could have been acquainted with the Savior under the tutelage of Jeremiah Wright. Mr. Wright taught a different Jesus than the one taught in the bible.
But my hope and prayer is that President Obama does come to know the Savior, and repents of his sins.Print This Post Filed under CULTure, government, news, views | Tags: Christianity, Maher, obama | Comment (1)
“And then somebody — I don’t remember who it was — turned and said, ‘You know what? What about Gibbs’ tie? What about Gibbs’ tie? That might look good.’ And, frankly, Robert didn’t want to give it up because he thought he looked really good in the tie. But eventually he was willing to take one for the Gipper, and so he took off his tie, and I put it on. And that’s the tie that I wore at the national convention.”
It’s a nice story. But Obama is not “The Gipper.” Perhaps if you pronounced the word differently, with a soft “g” sound… now that title fits, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I think that brings disrepute to gypsies, my apologies.
But the definition sticks… one who defrauds or one who swindles…

here is a tweet from the president:
Notice that it will be streamed from barackobama.com/live, not from whitehouse.gov. Apparently the government approved website is not elite enough for our elitist in chief.
Ever the campaigner, he has to campaign for everything he wants to do, including moving America forward.
Mr President! When are you going to stop campaigning? You hoodwinked enough people to get the job you are uniquely unqualified to do. Instead of dismantling the American system, why do you not just do the job you have?
Stop being a lapdog for George Soros. Communism has failed everywhere it was attempted. The only purely communist regime left on the planet is North Korea and that is not exactly the kind of country ANYONE wants to live in.
Get out of the way and let America get back to being the greatest country on earth again.Print This Post Filed under government, news, News&Views, views | Tags: globalism, government, obama, politics, progressive | Comments Off on Tweet from Mr President

Much hoo-hah is being made over the president’sseemingextreme spiritual makeover. It seems the apologists are working overtime to polish up the tarnished “piety” of POTUS.
After spending many years of Sundays under Jeremiah Wright’s tutelage, it seems urgent for everyone to know that Barack Obama is a Christian.
During a town hall meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico on 28 September 2010, the president was asked this question, “Why are you a Christian?”
His answer, beginning at about 7:45 in the video link above, is as follows…
You know, I’m a Christian by choice. My family didn’t – frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week. And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn’t raise me in the church.
I know you do not have to go to church to be a Christian, but if not under the discipline of a body of believers and like minded people, doctrine tends to drift, so-to-say.
So I came to my Christian faith later in life and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead – being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me.
Hmmm… now this is where I really start to wonder. First, understanding what Jesus was saying in Matthew 7:12, He was talking specifically in the context of serving others. But it seems that our president wants to be responsible for, or worse yet, to control others. This is not what Jesus Christ taught, ever! Quite frankly it is not taught anywhere else in the bible.
But let us continue…
And I think also understanding that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility we all have to have as human beings, that we’re sinful and we’re flawed and we make mistakes, and that we achieve salvation through the grace of God.
Respectfully, Mr. President, I think you get it wrong, it is not about us. It was Jesus Who was humbled (Philippians 2:5-8) for our sins. It was He Who died a shameful death (Isaiah 53:4-5) and took our just punishment. Yeah, we are sinful, (Romans 3:10) willful-disobedient (John 3:19-20) wretches! We offer NOTHING to a holy God, but to agree with Him about our sin, repent and then humbly serve Him and others.
Furthermore, would you continue to steal glory from God, by stating WE achieve salvation? It is only by His longsuffering, His mercy toward us, and His great sacrifice of grace that we are saved! Hallelujah!
But, as someone who has totally missed the grace of Jesus, our president would instruct us to help others.
But what we can do, as flawed as we are, is still see God in other people and do our best to help them find their own grace.
My job is NOT to see God in others, that sounds a bit pantheistic, or universal, not surprising for a post-modern man. But we do not help people “find their own grace.” That grace is useless! It is only the grace of God (John 3:36) of that saves. There is salvation in no other name, but the name of Jesus (Acts 4:12, John 14:6.)
Jesus teaches us how to identify Christians, first, by their fruits as written in Matthew 7:16. And then by the love we have for one another as written in John 13:34-35. Some of that fruit can be found in this previous post.
Make no mistake, I am not judging the president. I am only being like a Berean, and testing what he says against what the bible says is true!
If President Obama did as Jesus instructed in John 13:15-16. My mind might be changed. But I think the woe that Jesus spoke to the Pharisees in Matthew 23:25-26 may apply.Print This Post Filed under news, views | Tags: Christianity, CULTure, God, Jesus Christ, obama, salvation, the lie | Comments (2)
WHO IS HE?
Ever wondered why no one ever came forward from Obama’s past saying they knew him, attended school with him, was his friend, etc. Not one person has ever come forward from his past.
VERY, VERY STRANGE…
This should really be a cause for great concern.
To those who voted for him, you have elected the biggest unqualifed fraud that America has ever known. Sort of adds credence to the idea of The Manchurian Candidate thing happening here!
George Stephanopoulos, of ABC News. said the same thing during the 2008 campaign. He too was a classmate of Obama’s at Columbia class of 1984. He said he never had a single class with him..
While he is such a great orator, why doesn’t anyone in Obama’s college class remember him? And, why won’t he allow Columbia to release his records?
NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA !
Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.
Wayne Allyn Root was, like Obama, a political science major at Columbia who also graduated in 1983. In 2008, Root says of Obama, “I don’t know a single person at Columbia that knew him, and they all know me. I don’t have a classmate who ever knew Barack Obama at Columbia . EVER! Nobody recalls him.
Root adds that he was also, like Obama, “Class of ’83 political science, pre-law” and says, “You don’t get more exact or closer than that.” Never met him in my life, don’t know anyone who ever met him. At the class reunion, our 20th reunion five years ago, who was asked to be the speaker of the class? Me. No one ever heard of Barack!
And five years ago, nobody even knew who he was. The guy who writes the class notes, who’s kind of the, as we say in New York, the macha who knows everybody, has yet to find a person, a human who ever met him.”
Obama’s photograph does not appear in the school’s yearbook and Obama consistently declines requests to talk about his years at Columbia, provide school records, or provide the name of any former classmates or friend while at Columbia.
NOTE: Root graduated as Valedictorian from his high school, Thornton-Donovan School , then graduated from Columbia University in 1983 as a Political Science major in the same class that Barack Hussein Obama was supposed to have been in.
Some Other Interesting Questions…
Why was Obama’s law license inactivated in 2002? Why was Michelle’s law license inactivated by Court Order?
It is circulating that according to the U.S. Census, there is only one Barack Obama but 27 Social Security numbers and over 80 aliases. The Social Security number he uses now originated in Connecticut where he is never reported to have lived.
No wonder all his records are sealed!
We must go on and continue sending this out to everyone.

The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER This one is a little different ….
Two Different Versions …
Two Different Morals
OL D VERSION
The ant works
hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
MORAL OF THE OLD STORY: Be responsible for yourself!
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grass hopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast.
How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green…’
ACORN stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, We shall overcome.
Then Rev. Jeremiah Wright has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper’s sake.
President Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.
Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the
grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity &
Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper! and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
Be careful how you vote in 2010.
I’ve sent this to you because I believe that you are an ant not a grasshopper!
Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.
Don’t bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn’t understand it, anyway
There are reports that the Oval Office had an extreme make-over this past weekend. I marvel at the timing, well… no I don’t!
But, if I were the betting type, I would wager the primary color used is red, or possibly green. But since I am not, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is was this really necessary?
Was the expenditure from the public treasury justifiable in our precarious economic times?
Or are those of the political elite that far disconnected from the average Joe?
We shall see, soon!
