Obama to Cause U.S. to Default on Credit For First Time In Nation’s History Spiraling Milk to $100 a Gallon

obama-drinking-a-beer-e1347036757166

According to U.S. Treasury Secretary, Jacob J. Lew, Congress needs to pass a debt-ceiling increase by Oct. 17 or the U.S. will be “dangerously low” on cash and risk defaulting on its payments for the first time in the nation’s history.

According to a report from Bloomberg

, Republicans have attempted to end the Obama regime’s shutdown of the U.S. Government by passing legislation that would delay the mandate for individuals to purchase health insurance, a part of President Barack Hussein Obama’s 2010 Affordable Care Act, also known as “ObamaCare” for one year. However, President Hussein Obama refuses to negotiate with his constituents and has placed nearly one million government workers on furlough.

“I know the speaker well,” Lew said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” program on Fox News recently in response to Boehner’s remarks. “I know the speaker doesn’t want to default. He also didn’t want to shut down the government. He needs to give the majority a chance to vote.”

So what happens if the U.S. government, for the first time in history, defaults?

According to an article from the Free Patriot, (Read story here:  Obama Ready to Shutdown 16 U.S. States) it could cause a gallon of milk to cost upwards of $100, a loaf of bread, $44, and a gallon of gasoline, upwards of $1,000.

So, let’s hope that U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama begins negotiations with his constituents, and leads, as he was elected to do.

    Why in the world would you present garbage such as this?? Isn’t obama doing a bad enough job on his own without you resorting to infantile stuff like this? Just sit back and wait……..obama and his administration will implode shortly……we don’t need worthless scare tactics such as this……Take the high road!!

  • frank

    To the Muslims in our white house all I Want for Christmas is our fu—– country back. remember karma does come back around.

  • Just sayin’

    People we need to come together and get through all this….Yes, things may be bad but Obama walked into a huge mess. Somebody had to do something…..Please, can we focus on what can be done?

  • truepatriot

    Obama and his administration will not implode, in fact Obama his executing his plans perfectly. He is placing himself as the dictator of America. He wants to destroy the last bit of America that barely exists, and make it into a socialist country. He will get rid of any one that stands in his way, as he has already done. Obama did walk into a mess but he hasn’t done anything to make it better in even the smallest way. Obama is nothing more then a dictator, placed in office by his friends in the secret government. He was put there to bring about the end of America. He needs to be locked up, or even better, HUNG FOR TREASON!!!

  • Boagrius

    If these things do come to pass, OBonobo will see such an uprising in this country that he and his minions will be chased from office or there will be a Military coup de’tat to depose, and arrest the traitor and his followers. Imagine OBonobo, Biden, all the RINO’s, Pelosi, Reid, Feinstein, Boxer and Hillary all behind bars. It’ll never happen but it’s nice to imagine it. Karma will get them. It will get them all!!!

  • Good Ole Rebel

    Obama walked into a huge mess? Are you F****** kidding me? Obama is directly responsible for the mess we are now in. He has had over 5 years to create a balanced budget and get it through congress. Did he do it? NO, even though he had both the house and the senate for the first 2 years. Obama-care is an obama-nation. The congress, his buddies, Big business, etc have been given passes, yet he will REQUIRE an individual mandate for John Q Public. The shutdown is being used to further his agenda, by shutting down areas that will make the public take notice. From putting up barry-cades to prevent memorials from being visited, to trying to shut down the ocean. WTF is wrong with this guy and his supporters? Obama has actually had people kicked out of THEIR homes as part of the shut-down, simply because the land they are on is federal land. Explain that if you can? He has provided more armed guards to secure the open air Vietnam memorial and, prevent veterans from visiting, then he did to protect our ambassador in Benghazi. The entire debt accrued from Washington to Bush is less then the debt under King Oblamer. Its 5 years later, time to quit passing the blame and start assuming your own Obama.

  • TheTruth

    Everyone who believes that President Obama is against America’s interest is blind, congress is the problem not the President, they need to do their job and not gripe over a bill that they passed and a bill that will help a lot of people. affordable health care for everyone is a good thing

  • TheTruth

    President Obama is a Dictator? please stop saying such utter garbage.

  • TheTruth

    The mess we’re in has been coming for a long time, stop blaming one man for the problems of a country, if you’re gonna blame someone blame all of the government, its too easy to blame one man for something and its stupid when its not his fault

  • TheTruth

    I can tell this site is very Conservative and against the President. If I were to say Gays and Lesbians deserve the right to be married, woman have the right to choose whether or not to get an abortion, and that free healthcare for everyone would be a good thing. I’d probably get blasted wouldn’t I?

  • guest

    Are you kidding me??????????? Open your eyes!!!! How many presidents have signed Executive Order after Executive Order?? The man cannot be told “no”.

  • ArtistGuy79

    So, America is only for Christians? You know the Obama family are, in fact, Christians.

  • ArtistGuy79

    This is the first time in US history that a political party is trying to repeal/dismantle a law by shutting down the government. Republicans are being controlled by the far right thinkers in the Tea Party. Most Americans are in the middle and don’t agree with the Tea Party policies. But why should they care, they’ve got the government shut down and both sides fighting each other. Don’t fall for it America.

  • Thomas Johnson

    slow ass america’s you can tell them anything and they will believe it; you can put the issue right in their face and they will never see what really going on. a country fill with fucking idiets

  • ArtistGuy79

    Obama care is nothing but a rat trap made possible by our Government. All these people that do not know I feel pity for them, this is not just about health care , especially when they come knocking on your door and want to inspect your home because you have a chronically sick person living with. Better yet when they will ask you for all your financial records so they can keep track of what your spending , and see how much your spending. Then of course there is the monitoring of what you eat and where , there way of control obesity . Obama care is nothing but a ploy to take over the whole health care profession and insurance . They will then and are going to tell you what hospital you will go to and what Doctors to see if you see a Dr. at all, We have been hood winked from the get go there are few people who actually care about what is happening , but there words are not heard over loud mouthed people that are forcing us to buy something we do not want. If this was really affordable then they would go after drug company’s and insurance company’s and hospitals and Doctor’s that over charge medicare and those who abuse the welfare system. The end times are not about war’s fire and brimstone , it is about economics the main ingredients that make a free country work., Health care , Education , religion . and Government with out them you have ternary , you have the rich and the powerful ruling there is no middle class. We have become divided next will be the conquered , No middle class just rich and the poor. We will all be slaves if we do not stand together to protect what we have come to love our right to exist as women and men in one belief that we are all Americans free to exist , free to live , free to make our own choices like the grown ups we are. and there has been blood sacrifices made for that to remain ours Black , White , Americans people who believed that all men where created equally and that God our lord our savior is has loved us and blessed us with a country that you can do any thing you want as long as it does not infringe upon the rights of others. There will come a time when we will look back and say I should have listen to my neighbor , my friends who had eyes to see and ears to hear , it will be to late.

  • Can an Editor read this please

    A lot of article titles read like the events already happened instead of cautioning what -might- happen. That makes it hard for people to trust the articles on the site.

  • LibertarianFundamentals

    Sounds like you named a small part of the liberals agenda for the past 50 years notice that all of those things play towards societal decay hmmm minus the fact that there shouldnt be a marriage licence at all because theres supposed to be a proper separation of church and state how does this sound something they would of done if there intentions where pure create a dual citizen tax bracket for simply couples under the same roof abolish the marriage licence all together that is a church event of your religion and to respected as such. your names the truth huh maybe you should find it out the whole democratic party and every moderate republican is properly payed by the federal reserve and there big corporate cronies the only politicians on our side are the ones being demonized by centralist and leftist because the far right knows its not left vs right its authoritarian vs libertarian

  • Patty

    Obama is of the muslim faith, he said he was in a speach i heard today, he also admitted he was born in Kenya, and it showed he bowed down to the muslim king, so he is a liar and a traitor and should be thrown out of Office.

  • Patty

    you probably would

  • Mairead

    This coming from someone that can’t spell idiots, nor good grammar…………..

  • Baffled by the stupid

    Excuse me? you carry the name ‘The Truth’ but you spout only lies. Either that or you are honestly that snowed. “Affordable” health care is anything but affordable, it is not at all about our health it is all about control. How in the hell can it be considered affordable when on average it is 20% of a persons income? Try living paying that + 35% in taxes …

  • Terri King

    I agree, except the mess Obama started with came from a democrat controlled senate and house.

  • lj

    There are checks and balances for this kind of thing. Obama can’t throw us into default even though he wants to. The House has the power of the purse and will pay. Obama can’t stop it. This is just more fear tactics from the Media Whores and Obama trying to force his will on the American People.

  • Terri King

    A dictator that behaves worse than any 2 year old brat. He owns this shutdown. Why would any decent American president EVER want to crush his countrymen with ever growing debt, a disastrous healthcare plan and by placing members of the Muslim brotherhood in the DHS ?? He’s also a traitor. Wake up.

  • lj

    Your right, not so much him as Valerie Jarrett She needs to be put down like the rabid dog she is

  • lj

    LOL how funny is that? If Obama were Christian he wouldn’t be going after the Christian Pastors in the Military. If Obama were Christian he wouldn’t be arming the Rebels who are executing Christians in the Middle East. If Obama were Christian he wouldn’t threaten to arrest Priests for saying mass, voluntarily mind you, during the shutdown. If Obama were Christian he wouldn’t be so spiteful, vindictive and mean spirited with his Make it Hurt Policy. If Obama were Christian he wouldn’t bash the Bible every chance he gets. I understand the confusion, it takes discernment to look at the actions of a person as opposed to what they say. Actions speak louder than words.

  • lj

    You’d get ignored as a troll because you would be off topic

  • Terri King

    No one said America was just for Christians. The Bible does say that a Christian will be known by his fruit, or the results of his/ her Christian life. I’ve never heard of any Christian mocking the Bible, or excluding himself from Christian worship, then choosing to celebrate Muslim holidays. Obama cancelled the national day of prayer, then said America was a Muslim nation. His fruit is rotten.

  • Kenneth Stacey

    The truth must be obamas fuckin kin cause nobodys that stupid how do some people breathe on their fuckin own cause the good lord knows they cant read instructions

  • Terri King

    I just want to answer one part of your question. Free healthcare for everyone ?? It’s not free, it’s bankrupting companies and killing jobs. It’s cutting the 40 hour work week to less than 30. It’s raising premiums by as little as double to as much as quadruple what people were already paying. It’s cutting Medicare for seniors. It’s causing very very sick people to lose their coverage. It’s covering illegals, who should not be rewarded for breaking our laws. It’s paying for abortions, ( not only here, but worldwide ), its tying the hands of doctors who are trying to help their patients ( but will now have a panel of IRS employees deciding just who is worthy of care ), and still 30,000,000 people still won’t have insurance. It will be millions more, as so many cannot afford it. A family of 4, making 50k, BEFORE taxes, will pay over $14,000 a year, under obamacare. After taxes are taken out, it will be almost HALF of take home pay. So much for your free healthcare.

  • MitchHoff

    You hit the nail on the head, truepatriot, he showed himself as a true dictator by forcing Congress to keep the government open, and God help Congress when he forces them to raise the debt ceiling.

    I’m not sure that word means what you think it means.

  • MitchHoff

    Uhm, how many presidents have signed executive order after executive order?

    Hmmm, let’s see:

    Washington 8, Adams 1, Jefferson 4, Madison 1, Monroe 1, JQ Adams 3, Jackson 12, Harrison 0, Tyler 17, Polk 18, Taylor 5, Filmore 12, Pierce 35, Buchanan 16, Lincoln 48, Andrew Johnson 79, Grant 217, Hayes 92, Garfield 6, Arthur 96, Cleveland 113, McKinley 185, T Roosevelt 1081, Taft 724, Wilson 1,803, Harding 522, Coolidge 1,203, Hoover 968, FDR 3,522, Truman 907, Eisenhower 484, JFK 214, LBJ 325, Nixon 346, Ford, 169, Carter, 320, Reagan 381, Bush 41 166, Clinton 364, Bush 43 291, Obama 163.

    Unless you’re trying to make a point about the administration of William Henry Harrison, I’m not sure where you are going with this.

    So, TheTruth, I have my eyes open, and President Obama is on track to sign fewer Executive Orders than Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush; so what is your point? I answered your question; so would you be so kind as to answer my mine: President Obama is on track to sign no more executive orders than most presidents in a generation; so, what is your point?

  • MitchHoff

    Oh, that’s right, Congress doesn’t fund the government, the president does.

    I’m shocked to learn that the rules that govern the appropriations process are all wrong. All this time, I thought that Congress was responsible for appropriating funds–now I learn it’s the President who funds the government. Have you thought of calling the Sergeant at Arms for both the House and Senate to inform them that they’ve got it all wrong and have had it all wrong for over 200 years? Make sure to tell them Congress doesn’t have to fund the government after all, and they have been following the wrong rules since the inception of the Republic.

    It’s amazing that you are also in possession of knowledge that that is so explosive that NOBODY knows about it. Since you know more about these things than anybody else, please tell us your source for your statement that the President was “placing members of the Muslim Brotherhood in (sic) the DHS.”

    If you are going to make statements like that, it would be helpful if you offered a bit of credible truth. (Because, after all, it is not true–it’s just that some people actually believe this drivel and are all to anxious to perpetuate this myth).

    Finally, a traitorous act is well defined under the law. Since you are obviously a lawyer, perhaps you could give us the legal grounds for your assertion that the President is a traitor.

    Boy, I’ve learned so much from you. Perhaps I had better wake up as you suggest. I was dozing off there.

  • Rat Cole

    you must be a muslim commie bastard.

  • MitchHoff

    There have always been Muslims working at the White House. Good patriotic Americans who dedicate their lives to public service and to make sure you live in a country that is free and prosperous.

    What you say about Karma is true, Frank. Perhaps you may want to remember that when you demean your fellow Americans.

  • MitchHoff

    Oh, you heard the President say in a speech (sic) that he was “of the Muslim faith.” You must have a special television that lets you watch events that never happened. Where do I get one of those?

    Could you please enlighten us about any lies the president has told? Other than political puffery, I’m willing to bet you can not find one example of a lie he has told.

    While we’re on the subject of lies, Patty, shall we talk about Saddam Hussein bombing us on 9/11 as Bush and Cheney wanted us to believe? Or perhaps you want to defend the Bush Administration’s lies that were designed to take us into war in Iraq. Defend those lies to the families of the 4,000+ Americans who were killed in Iraq. Mission Accomplished, huh, Patty?

  • MitchHoff

    If you were Christian, you might want to give some thought to the 9th commandment about bearing false witness. Congress knew that there were consequences to their actions when they failed to fund the Government. If you were the slightest bit aware of the LAW governing closure of the Federal Government, you’d understand that Congress is responsible for the consequences of a shutdown, even if it involves furloughing clergy.

    As for funding some unsavory rebels, don’t be so naive Mr. ArtsyGuy, our country has been funding unsavory rebels since its inception. Remember the old adage, “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter.” I doubt in your artsy world, you are faced with impossible decisions all American presidents have to make. It’s easy to be so righteous from the cheap seats, isn’t it?

    ArtsyGuy, we are a nation of laws, and the president cannot willy nilly disobey the law during a shutdown, just because it’s convenient, and just because Congress didn’t consider the consequences of their actions.

    Finally, I’d love to hear just one example of President Obama bashing the bible. Just one, please, You cannot provide one, because there are none.

  • piratewench

    why cant we just get rid of the son of bitch???

  • Terri King

    Mohamed Elibiary. Google him. He works for the DHS. Member of Muslim brotherhood. The MB symbol is on his social media page. As far as funding goes, Obama got his way for 4 years, having both senate and house controlled by democrats. Traitorous ? Yes, by sending weapons to our enemies: al-Qaeda, in Syria and the MB in Egypt. Your sarcasm doesn’t change the truth.

  • MitchHoff

    Rat, Terri asked how many Presidents have signed Executive Order after Executive Order. Unlike most people on this site, I was able to provide her with FACTS. I actually answered her question with the number of Executive Orders signed by every President in the history of our country.

    She was trying to make the point that President Obama has signed an inordinate number of executive orders; but he has signed no more than most presidents in two generations.

    I gave her the facts, that’s all. how does that make me a muslim commie bastard? (By the way, muslims have traditionally been arch enemies of communist regimes; so to call somebody a muslim commie, really doesn’t make much sense).

    For what it’s worth, I’m not a muslim (and if I were, what would be wrong with that?). I’m not a commie (nobody is a communist anymore–that’s so 1950s); and I am not a bastard. So, I’ll ask you the same question that I asked Terri. What’s your point?

  • Frank Hickman

    Right, so when Congress sent the appropriations bill to the Senate, it was rejected because there were no appropriations for the AHCA (which is illegal since only Congress can initiate taxes, not the Senate), so yes, this shutdown rests squarely on the Democrats and the POTUS.

  • MitchHoff

    Terri, I don’t want to burst your bubble; but there are a few facts that get in the way of your theory that President Obama has placed “Members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the DHS”

    First, there are no “members” of the Muslim Brotherhood working for DHS-You can bet that if any member of the Muslim Brotherhood were to receive one of the relatively few presidential appointments at DHS, such an affiliation would be front and center at the employee’s Senate confirmation hearing.

    I am sure you will be disappointed to hear that Mohamed Elibiary does not work for DHS. He was appointed to an unpaid 30 member advisory council chaired by William Webster, director of the CIA during the Reagan Administration. The Homeland Security Advisory Council meets infrequently to discuss a wide range of issues related to the overall mission of DHS. As with all federal agencies that have advisory councils, all meetings of the councils are held in public, and the members of the councils have no responsibilities other than sitting in on the meetings and offering advice and counsel at an appropriate point in the meeting. The purpose of all Federal advisory councils is to provide the agency with a variety of perspectives that can help them achieve the core mission of the agency. Their roles are relatively benign, and they can do no more than make recommendations, not create policy.

    You should also take some time to understand the purpose of advisory councils to Federal agencies to understand why a fairly controversial figure such as Mr. Elibiary would be appointed to an advisory council. The purpose of these councils is to provide the government with advice from all perspectives. If the Department of Homeland Security were to ignore input from the muslim community, they would deprive themselves of valuable input from those who understand the thoughts and motivations of those who seek to do us harm. The Federal Government cannot, and should not, just assume they know how it’s actions are perceived in the muslim community–to do so would put us all at risk. After all, 99.99% of muslims in this country are decent, God-fearing, hard working Americans just like the rest of us. By treating the muslim community like a pariah, we risk alienating an entire group of Americans who deplore terrorism just like you and I.

    Much is made in the conservative blogosphere about the fact that Mr. Elibiary has a security clearance. I don’t know what level of clearance he has; but as the clearance gets more sensitive, the individual is subjected to a greater level of scrutiny by the FBI and the security clearance office at DHS. If there is anything in his background that would compromise his ability to be granted a clearance, the career staff at DHS would not grant him, or anybody else a clearance. All that being said, just because somebody has a security clearance doesn’t mean they have access to any sensitive information unless they have a need to know–and since the council meetings are all held in the full view of the public, it’s doubtful that they delve into much material that is considered classified.

    Terri, you asked me to google Mr. Elibiary, and when doing so, it became clear that most of the stories about him were posted on websites that you’d expect to be critical of any muslim serving in any capacity for the Federal Government. However, if you look to more objective, and less controversial sites, you’ll find that Mr. Elibiary was awarded the FBI’s highest public service award for his “extraordinary contribution to specific cases in support of the FBI’s counterterrorism mission.” He was also the recipient of an award by the U.S. district court for his contribution to a key counterterrorism case–there are other commendations for work done for our country; so despite the fact that people who are predisposed to view any muslim with suspicion, Mr. Elibiary has served his country well.

    Now, as for the symbol you mention, it is not a logo for the Muslim Brotherhood, it is a symbol that commemorates the slaughter of Egyptian citizens by government troops. The symbol has come to represent the sacrifices of those who stood against their government in a variety of conflicts. Granted, the Muslim Brotherhood has used this symbol in many of its protests, the symbol has been widely adopted by a large number of organizations to show their contempt for authoritarian rule.

    As for the boogie man that the Muslim Brotherhood has morphed into, you should keep in mind that the Muslim Brotherhood was one of the first organizations in the Arab world to denounce the attacks after 9/11. Like most political parties that exist in times of strife, the Muslim Brotherhood has its own extremists and radicals; but throughout its history they have been mostly a moderate organization that was once very much pro-American. Unfortunately, some Americans assume that because they have the name Muslim in their name, they must be bad.

    So, Terri, if others on this site were to take a little bit of time to learn about the actual role Mr. Elibiary plays, and the function of the DHS advisory council, we would all be well served.

    As you can see, it’s not as bad as you assumed. President Obama is not loading up DHS with terrorists and members of the Muslim Brotherhood. (In fact, the President doesn’t actually play ANY role in the appointment of people to these councils or in the vast majority of the thousands of sub-cabinet political appointments–that work is done by the Office of Presidential Personnel at the White House, not the immediate office of the President. No matter who is President, a Republican or Democrat, they have bigger fish to fry than to get involved in personnel decisions. So, I won’t bother arguing that point, other than to say when you state that President Obama is placing a person at DHS, the President likely has no idea that Mr. Elibiary is on this council, and it is quite possible he doesn’t even know Mr. Elibiary).

    So, Terri, I know you don’t want to hear this; but there is plenty of blame to go around in Washington, and the more you scratch the surface and look beyond the ranting and raving, the more you may realize that our President ain’t so bad.

  • MitchHoff

    Mr. Truth, perhaps you could offer some specific examples what you think Ms. Jarrett has done wrong–other than the fact you just don’t like her. Also, you are really showing your intelligence by making such statements about a Secret Service protectee.

  • MitchHoff

    Terri, oh Terri, where do you get this stuff? For what it’s worth, the White House has a history of honoring muslim holidays, even hosting an annual White House commemoration of Eid al Fitr, the end of Ramadan. Just as a quick example, here are the remarks given by President Bush at his ANNUAL Eid celebration: http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/releases/2002/12/20021205-5.html

    Terri, the President has no authority to cancel the national day of prayer. Think about it for a second. It’s like saying the President cancelled Mother’s day, or called off Valentine’s Day. Read this: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/prayerday.asp

    Finally, the President did not say America is a Muslim Nation. I challenge you to find a reference that proves your assertion. C’mon, give it a shot.

  • MitchHoff

    Damn, John, you are delusional, and you watch too much Fox News. None of this drivel that you write about the Affordable Care Act has any basis in fact, and I challenge you to provide a source that proves the truth of what you write. Come on, show us all. If any of what you claim about the Affordable Care Act is true, it would be contained in the Law–and I doubt you have taken the time to read it–something you ought to do, considering your passion for the subject.

    O

  • MitchHoff

    Frank, you should work on your facts, and you should have listened in civics class.

    What do you mean by Congress sent the appropriations bill to the Senate? The Senate is part of Congress.

    If you don’t know the names of our legislative bodies, how can you expect anybody to think you know what you are talking about?

  • Frank Hickman

    Pardon me, The House of Representatives. However “Congress” still applies to the other statement with regards to both House and Senate, not the POTUS.

  • lj

    Oh you poor deluded fool. He bashed the Bible in his speech’s several times. The rebels he funded led to the death of Ambassador Stevens.

    Secret Service Protectee? like that makes her special? She has less class than Napolitano and that’s a stretch. The woman called the stand down on Benghazi. She has no authority and needs to be arrested. This is her vindictive attitude
    The part that really stuck out to me was when I overheard the rep say that Jarrett told them, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it. Pretty creepy

    He is not compromising and is showing the whole nation what a douche bag he can be with his Make it Hurt policy. He cares about winning and not the American Public.

    Here’s what I think most people are failing to remember…America
    operates on a fiat currency…paper money backed by thin air…the ONLY
    value it has is based on your misguided belief that such value exists.
    It costs the Federal Reserve 12.7 cents to print a single $100
    bill…grab your calculators and do the math…that’s a stunning 780+%
    ROI (Return on Investment)…that $17 trillion figure attached to our
    National Debt…is the direct result of compound interest on the unpaid
    principle of the original request for currency. It is theoretically
    impossible to repay the principle and interest of our debt based
    economy…in order to do so would require requesting even more fiat
    currency…furnished by the Federal Reserve with the same interest rates
    applied…I see a ton of finger pointing going on…the Republicans are
    responsible…it’s the Democrats…WTFU…it’s the continued existence

    if you love the nigger so much why don’t you move in with him.

  • MitchHoff

    Rat, that man who you call a “nigger” is the President of the United States. Like him or hate him, he is the President.

    Let’s see, this man you call a “nigger” worked his way through college, and worked his way through Harvard Law School, Only the best of the best go to Harvard Law School, and Barack Obama graduated with honors, beating out some of the most brilliant legal minds in the nation. This man you call “nigger” has written, without a ghost writer, two best selling books, that were best sellers before he ran for President.

    He was a professor at the University of Chicago Law School, and a respected Constitutional Law scholar. he also served in the Illinois legislature.

    He was elected to the United States Senate, and as we know he went on to become President of the United States, elected for two terms. He is also a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. Plus, his wife is smokin’ hot.

    Now, I raise these points not because I have my nose up his ass. I raise each of these points because each and every one of them is true. The most successful of Americans do not achieve ONE of the things I listed above, and he has done them all.

    Finally, given the fact that your President has done each of these things, what have you done with your life? What have you done that makes you anything more than a run of the mill racist who thinks he can justify his own failures by calling another American a “nigger.”

    So, c’mon Rat, tell us all what you have done with your life? Did you even go to college? Can you read beyond a 4th grade level? Have you made ANY contributions to this world? What have you done to earn the oxygen you breathe? Tell us that you have done one thing during your life that comes close to the contributions Barack Obama has made? C’mon tell us just one thing. What have you done in your entire life that even comes close to what President Obama does when he takes a shit in the morning? Not much more, I suppose.

    By calling Mr. Obama a “nigger,” you have demonstrated that you are the absolute worst that America has to offer. Call him a “nigger” if you want; but there is nothing that you can say that would disprove the fact that this “nigger” is better than you. As a human, he is better than you. As a man, he is better than you. As an American he is better than you. Everything about this “nigger” is better than you, and you should get used to the fact that Barack Obama could kick your ass in every way imaginable.

    Whatever it is you want out of your time on this earn, Barack Obama has already far surpassed you on every level. You are a loathsome scumbag and you can live your life happy in the knowledge that this “nigger” as you call him is better than you.

    In re to being a Muslim:

    Finally, during the week of 14-18th of January 2010, just on the eve of my winter tour to the US, Rachel picked up a Nile TV broadcast in whichEgyptian Foreign Minister Abul Gheit said on the “Round Table Show” that he had had a one on one meeting with Obama who swore to him that he was a Moslem, the son of a Moslem father and step-son of Moslem step-father, that his half-brothers in Kenya were Moslems, and that he was loyal to the Moslem agenda. He asked that the Moslem world show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic American problems (Healthcare), that he would show the Moslem world what he would do with Israel.”

    This is according to Israel Today here. Here is the passage from the May 2010 issue of “Israel Today.” It is on page 3 in an article titled “Obama, a ‘Strategic Catastrophe,’” by Aviel Schneider:

    “The feeling among the Israeli public is that Obama is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel. “The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.”

    Source: http://www.examiner.com/article/media-blackout-obama-admitted-to-foreign-official-he-is-a-muslim **Note** You can find that story in other articles around the web, other than the Examiner.

    OR

    I thought this was an interesting “slip of the tongue”

    Now in re to Obama lies, not political puffery, one needs to look no further than Obamacare.

    “No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise,” President Obama told the American Medical Association in 2009. “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what.”

    Thanks to Obamacare. I received a letter in the mail two weeks ago. What does that mean? I will not be able to keep my healthcare plan.

    Obamacare Lie: “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits – either now or in the future.”
    The CBO again raised its estimate on what Obamacare will cost over the next decade, from $814 billion to $1.047 trillion. While President Obama has claimed the ACA will actually reduce deficits due to all the money raised from taxes, penalties and fees, critics say much of the “savings” result from accounting tricks and double-counting. And with Obamacare’s estimated costs rising rapidly, it’s more a question of when, not if, the law will begin contributing to the federal budget deficit.

    Obamacare Lie: Obamacare will “cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”
    Sorry, the “Affordable Care Act” will in fact make healthcare insurance far less affordable. On Jan. 30 the IRS released new regulations regarding Obamacare – remember that the IRS is in charge of penalizing you should you fail to purchase the mandated insurance – that included cost estimates for the plans the government will offer. For a family of four, the cheapest plan – dubbed Bronze in Obamacare-speak – will cost $20,000 a year in 2016. That’s an increase of more than $4,000 from the average of $15,745 such families paid in 2012.

    Obamacare Lie: The new healthcare law will improve, not hurt, the quality of American healthcare.
    We don’t have proof of this yet, but given that more people (Obamacare provides coverage to millions of people who do not now have it) will be using the same amount of healthcare resources, it stands to reason that quality will decline. Here’s what Dr. Adam Frederic Dorin said in a recent article in The Washington Times: “Most doctors will not be able to afford to see patients with an Obamacare card. This means that patients will be increasingly relegated to longer lines in publicly funded clinics…. More patients will be denied access to advanced, cutting-edge drugs like chemotherapeutics.”

    Obamacare Lie: It’s not a government takeover: “I don’t believe that government can or should run healthcare.”
    Although Obamacare doesn’t seize total control of the U.S. healthcare system, it extends the tendrils of government deep into it and gives the Department of Health and Human Services broad powers. One particularly troubling example is the Independent Payment Advisory Board, which will have the power to lower payment rates for Medicare treatments, which could reduce the care available to seniors.

    Obama: America “One of the Largest Muslim Countries in the World”

    ABC now confirms, Obama’s speech in Cairo will focus on his Muslim rootsand the unique perspective it provides him. Obama also teased the contents of the speech in aninterview with a French television station:

    What I want to do is to create a better dialogue so that the Muslim world understands more effectively how the United States but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what’s happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

    Now, the flip side is I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam. And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. And so there’s got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples.

    You’re not a very bright guy, are you?

  • MitchHoff

    CWM,

    Here’s a question: If I were to disprove each one of these items, or the vast majority of them, would you change your view of the President?

  • MitchHoff

    CWM, Historically, regardless of who is President, regardless of the President’s party, there is always a modicum of tension between the government and religious organizations. Rightly so, the government is always careful in its treatment of religious issues because the separation of church and state. However, to draw conclusions about the President’s faith, or to say he is anti-religion based on these items is nothing short of absurd. First, the President is an avowed Christian, period, end of sentence. Second, the government is a big place, and to connect the President to most of these assertions would cause anybody who knows how government works to laugh at any attempt to indict the President’s faith based on these items. (To be sure, a person could find similar examples from a Republican administration as well).

    As you read through an analysis of your charges, you will find that NOT ONE of them demonstrates a hatred for the bible or people of faith by President Obama. Please read all the way through, and you’ll see that your view of him is entirely unfounded.

    So, let’s look at these items one by one, and I hope after reading this, people will be able to put them in the proper perspective and stop calling into question the President’s Christian faith, and stop making false claims that he is anti-Chrisitan.

    Here we go:

    Ambassador at Large for Religious Freedom: This one is a doozie! If you’re looking for somebody to blame here, don’t look to President Obama, you should blame the United States Senate. As he was filling many ambassador posts (all of which were staffed with an acting ambassador, by the way) President Obama nominated Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook to be our nation’s Ambassador at Large for Religious Freedom; but, as with countless sub-cabinet positions, for no valid reason, the Republicans in the Senate did not act on Dr. Cook’s nomination, leaving it to fester and ultimately allowing her nomination to expire. Both the President and Secretary Clinton were critical of the Senate for allowing many ambassador posts to remain unfilled; but the Republicans in the Senate were more interested in playing politics with the confirmation process than they are allowing the President to staff up his administration, and this battle has been well publicized and documented, and the GOP has been widely criticized by both parties for their inaction on appointees that range from low level positions all the way up to Ambassador posts and Federal judgeships. In this case, the faith community mobilized their troops, urging President Obama to resubmit a nominee, and they put a great deal of pressure on the Senate to force them to hold a hearing, and submit the name to the full Senate so the post could be finally filled. After re-submittring Dr. Cook’s name for the post, the Senate finally confirmed her and the post is still occupied by Dr. Cook who has been widely applauded for her work on rooting out those who would persecute people of faith worldwide.

    So, this contention is misleading, at best; but it certainly does not reflect poorly on the President. What it does is offer a real world example of how an obstructionist political party in the Senate causes true harm to people of faith everywhere.

    Affordable Care Act and religious organizations: This matter has been widely debated and there are strong feelings on both sides of this issue. The issue was raised not in the context of abortion, which is generally not covered by insurance anyway, it is related to the preventative care aspects of the ACA, which require insurance policies subject to the Act to offer free preventative care, to reduce overall healthcare costs incurred when people get sick, (or in this case, pregnant). Many people who work for universities, hospitals, not for profits and other organizations that are owned by religious organizations don’t ascribe to all of the tenets of the organization that owns or manages their employer. The Catholic church balked at the notion that they should be required to provide any form of contraception, when birth control of any kind, other than the rhythm method.The administration argued that when 95% of women in the country use some form of birth control during childbearing years, it places an undue burden on the employee to deny coverage for something that is so widely accepted in our society. It’s important to point out that nobody was requiring coverage for abortion; but the Catholic church and other denominations argued that abortion should be specifically mentioned, and banned under the Act. The administration took the position that abortion is generally not covered by health insurance; so the abortion question is a non-issue. Nonetheless, groups opposed to any form of abortion argued for a specific prohibition.

    It is also worth mentioning that for every faith-based organization that was opposed to requiring contraception coverage, there was an equal number of religious organizations that fought FOR this coverage. After all, the Catholic Church is pretty much on its own in its belief that contraception is a sin.

    As you may know, the administration reached a compromise on this issue, and ultimately the courts will decide the matter.

    So, one more example of digging a little deeper to demonstrate that this subject has nothing to do with your contention that the President bashes the bible at every turn.

    WWII Memorial: It is wildly incorrect to say that President Obama objected to placing FDR’s prayer at the WWII memorial. Senator Rob Portman introduced a bill in the Senate that would have placed the prayer at the monument. This bill was little noticed, and it is doubtful that anybody at the White House even knew of its existence when it was proposed by Senator Portman. As you may know, EVERY aspect of ANY memorial on Federal property is always very contentions, and EVERY aspect of ANY memorial is widely debated before the memorial is even built. To prevent re-litigation of what is and is not on a memorial, the Commemorative Works Act prohibits the alteration of any federal memorial.

    The bill was discussed at a Congressional hearing, at which Robert Abbey, the director of the Bureau of Land Management testified. Citing the Commemorative Works Act, the director stated that BLM, (not the White House) could not support alteration of the memorial. This had nothing to do with religion, it had everything to do with THE LAW (go figure). Director Abbey’s views were also consistent with the position taken by the National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission and the American Battle Monuments Commission, the organization that oversaw the design and construction of the WWII Memorial, because adding the plaque would run contrary the intentions of those groups with whom the ABMC worked on the initial design of the memorial.

    Once again, if you want to blame anybody on this issue, blame Congress. BOTH houses of Congress have yet to vote on the bill that would authorize the placement of the prayer; but once they do, I’d bet that President Obama will sign the bill, because he is, after all, a man of faith, a Christian, and his grandfather served in the Army in Europe during WWII, and it is likely that he will see this as a fitting way to honor his grandfather, and all those who fought during the War.

    Young Marines program: If you insist on blaming a President in a case like this, why don’t you blame President George W. Bush? It was during his term, in 2004 that the Department of Justice rescinded its funding for a Boy Scouts troop in Illinois for the same reasons. DoJ is not a major donor to groups like this; but, as your reference mentioned, members are required to swear an oath to God, and it is that oath that is the sticking point. In the 2004 case, DOJ felt that by requiring members to swear an oath, governmental support for that organization would violate the Establishment Clause of the Constitution.

    Since that time, the DoJ’s position has been that the oath sworn to God as a condition of membership is a determining factor in whether or not the organization can receive DoJ grants. So, you see, this has nothing to do with President Obama, and the precedent for this position dates back to the administration of George W. Bush.

    Thanksgiving. This is just plain silly. First, if you look at each and every one of his Thanksgiving proclamations, the proclamations speak very eloquently about the blessings of God and the God-given abundance bestowed on our nation.

    The only remarks the President makes about Thanksgiving are at the Presidential Turkey Pardoning Ceremony, yes, the perpetually goofy Turkey Pardoning Ceremony. This event is intended to be light-heartred, fun, and because it is a turkey pardoning ceremony, downright silly. Nonetheless, if you were to actually read the transcripts (God forbid you would have done your research) you will find that in 2009, 2010 and 2012, the President does mention God and asks for his blessing for our country and for the men and women who are serving our country in the military. From listening to the audio of 2011, it appears that the lighthearted nature of the event took over the ceremony; but the sentiment was indeed there, and, as I mentioned his official Thanksgiving proclamation in 2011 does mention, in eloquent terms, the blessings God has bestowed upon our nation.

    Declaration of independence. Wow, you’re really stretching it here. First, I’d suggest that you do a search of the transcripts of the President’s speeches at whitehouse.gov. There you will find roughly 50 speeches where the President quoted the declaration of independence and included the phrase “by their creator.” You can also visit the National Archives and see that George W. Bush uttered those words in his speeches less than 15 times.

    Video of a couple of his speeches where he left out “by their creator,” are on the internet. In those videos, you’ll see that through his cadence, he is beginning to paraphrase the Declaration of Independence–he was speaking more about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness than he was who endowed us with those inalienable rights.

    Finally, do we only have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because our creator endowed us with those rights, or do we have those rights regardless of who endowed us with them? Whether or not our creator gave us those rights, all people have those rights nonetheless.

    National Prayer Day. George W. Bush decided to have a breakfast at the White House on National Prayer day. No other president has done so. Just because George W. Bush stands alone as the only President to hold this breakfast, doesn’t mean that President Obama is anti-religion. If you are going to indict President Obama for not holding a breakfast that no other President, save one, has held, you may want to call all 43 other Presidents anti religion. (As a side note, President Obama attends the national Prayer Breakfast; but you probably want to ignore that fact).

    Covered Monogram: So, did President Obama cover up the monogram at Georgetown the night before the speech when he was at the event site setting up the staging, lighting and sound, or did he put up the pipe and drape just before he came out to speak? Which stagehand union does he belong to, do you suppose? Seriously, though, the stage used by the President is created by the White House Advance Team that coordinates all of the President’s events. The President doesn’t know what is up on his stage until he walks out on stage; so to say he had anything to do with the staging material is just plain wrong and ill-informed.

    So, I hate to inform you; but as President, Mr. Obama, (or any other President), does not set up his own event sites; so he did not cover up anything.

    Let’s get to the substance of your allegation: The speech the President was giving at Georgetown that day was not about religion. It was about the economy. If you’ve seen President Obama give policy speeches, you’ll see that the White House is very consistent by using blue or black drape behind a wall of flags. They use this backdrop so often, it’s really hard to tell one event from the other. What do you suppose was behind the drape at these other speeches? You know, whether its’s a plain wall, or an ornate painting, or a religious symbol, it doesn’t matter, because the backdrop is drape and flags.

    Here is what the spokesperson for Georgetown said, “The White House [advance team] wanted a simple backdrop of flags and pipe and drape for the speech, consistent with what they’ve done for other policy speeches. Frankly, the pipe and drape wasn’t high enough by itself to fully cover the IHS and cross above the GU seal and it seemed most respectful to have them covered so as not to be seen out of context.”

    So, there you have it. Nothing here that even smells like hatred of the bible or religion.

    The Vatican: This one is patently false as well. The President did not nominate three people who were rejected by the vatican. It is well documented that the White House (the president was not likely involved at this point) floated the names of some possible nominees to leaders of various Catholic organizations. They weren’t nominated, they were simple suggestions, one of which was Caroline Kennedy. Since these were just suggestions, it was pointed out that any nominee for Ambassador to the Holy See should have views that are consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church. It is well known that Caroline Kennedy is pro-choice, as our most democrats; so it’s easy to see why she might not be a good fit to represent the U.S. at the Vatican.

    The President ended up nominating Miguel Diaz to the post, and Mr. Diaz served with distinction until earlier this year.

    Once again, the President showed no disrespect for any religion here.

    General Boykin: How you can derive a relationship with this matter to the President is simply mind boggling.

    General Boykin was not disinvited from the West Point Prayer Breakfast because he is an outspoken Christian. General Boykin was disinvited because a number of veterans groups, including votevets.org protested vehemently over General Boykin speaking at West Point because his speeches are divisive, often hurtful, and generally disrespectful of other religions. I’ve heard this guy speak before, and dang, he is over the top.

    Because of General Boykin’s outspoken belittlement of other religions, it makes sense that he would be an inappropriate speaker at an prayer breakfast that is not a Christian event, it is an event that unites all religions in the common practice of prayer. Speakers at these events are generally representatives of numerous religious faiths, and wouldn’t you think it would be inappropriate to also include a speaker who is known to demean other religions? Wouldn’t you think it would be more appropriate to have a Christian speaker who is known for his or her embrace of all people of faith?

    Defense Authorization Amendment. The amendment in question was offered by Representative John Flemming of Louisiana. While it seems innocuous at first glance, this amendment would give any member of the military the ability to engage in ANY religious speech, and to engage in ANY religious practice without ANY oversight from the command and control structure. It’s one thing to practice and speak about one’s religion while in the military, it’s entirely another to allow a soldier, sailor or airman the ability to engage in any practice or speech, no matter how over the top that speech or practice may be. Also, by not allowing the command and control structure to reasonably limit the practices or the means by which people speak about their religion, a commanding officer is totally unable to do anything about any religious practice that may be disruptive or problematic within their unit.

    I’m a little bit miffed about why you think opposing this amendment is necessarily a bad thing. Members of the military should be able to practice their beliefs in a manner that is not disruptive; but if those practices become disruptive, the person’s commander must have the ability to stop the disruptive activity. (Let’s say voodoo is one of the tenets of a soldier’s religion–there are such religions, you know. Now, let’s further say the partitioner of this faith creates voodoo dolls that are in the likeness of his commanding officers and, in front of the entire platoon, the soldier stabs pins into the voodoo dolls and screams, “Kill the Captain, Kill the Captain!” Don’t you think a commanding officer should be able to stop this activity? Not in Representative Flemming’s world. Also, what if a soldier, sailor or airman belongs to a faith that engages in snake handling, which is a common practice in some Christian denominations. Don’t you think that might present a problem that a commanding officer would want to address? Not if Representative Flemming has his way.

    Catholic Chaplain Issue. I”m not sure why you think this is a reflection on President Obama–he surely knew nothing about this obscure matter. As Commander in Chief, don’t you think he has bigger fish to fry? If not, you don’t know much about the role of Commander in Chief–but I digress.

    This one is actually easy. First of all, the order not to read the letter was issued by the Army Office of the Chief of Chaplains. The letter was read in Catholic Churches and addressed the elements of the Affordable Care Act primarily related to contraception and sterilization. At issue in the letter was a line that read, “we cannot and will not obey this unjust law.” That is something members of the military cannot do–because after all, people who serve in the military must obey ALL laws.

    In the end, the Archbishop who wrote the letter spoke with the Secretary of the Army, and after the Archbishop agreed to remove the line about disobeying the law, the Catholic Chaplains were then given permission to read the letter to their parishioners.

    So, what’s your beef on that one, and how did you manage to pull President Obama into this?

    So, see CWM, NOT ONE one of these stories demonstrates any hatred towards the bible by President Obama. You may want to rethink your view of him. He is a committed Christian and a promoter of religious liberty for all, and I honestly hope and pray you will come to understand that fact.

  • MitchHoff

    So, which one of my assessments do you think are wrong and why? You draw a conclusion that the President bashes the Bible, and it is based on very flimsy evidence. Point by point, I provided a solid explanation, yet you cannot admit that you are wrong. What’s more, most of your Obama bashing headlines come from the same biased source–so if you did some I dependent research, you’d find that you truly are being duped. I would really be interested to know how you think any of my points are incorrect, when it is so easy to do so your own independent research to find out whether my points are correct or not.

    But, you have drawn your conclusion, and truth be damned, right?

    No, he was NEVER granted the title of “professor”, he used it to describe himself and U of C let it slide. http://www.forbes.com/sites/larrybell/2013/09/03/professor-or-not-obama-repeatedly-flunks-constitution-law-tests/

  • real truth

    First off we havent received proof of him being a US citizen that was fake, he smoked weed all through college thus never actually graduating w/ honors unless paid for, the 2 books he wrote show exactly how he feels which is not what our country is about, his law degree (along w/ his wife’s) were revoked for fraud, he was a senator for less than a full term, he has been pushed through everything by the elite left w/o anyone batting an eye at the scandals surrounding him (ayers- terrorist, wright- controversial pastor, etc…), he won the nobel peace prize for doing exactly zilch (in fact has created 1 war and wanted a second, but hey thats peace right?) which also goes along with other leaders that were not exactly the greatest, voter fraud was heavy in both of his elections to the presidency, he comes from a state w/ the highest rate of corrupt politicians.., and his wife is a gorilla (unless you like bestiality, how is she hot??)

    Actually no, it was a republican plan.

    FACTS!!!! Your not allowed to use any FACTS on this site!!!! It is here for haters to hate, they don’t need no stinking facts!!!

  • MitchHoff

    I’m beginning to learn that. One guy posted a bunch of reasons why President Obama was a bible hater. I went through his points one by one, demonstrating how and why they were wrong and how and why each point could not possibly reflect upon Mr. Obama’s faith. Didn’t matter. His mind was made up. Facts be damned.

    His source for many of his points: Glenn Beck. ‘Nuff said.

  • MitchHoff

    ij, I’m not saying she’s any more special than you our I; but when you start making rumblings like you are threatening a Secret Service protectee, you may get a knock on your door by a representative of your local, friendly USSS office, just for a nice sit down chat that may or may not involve hand cuffs and a ride to the Federal Building for another chat.

    The walls have ears, remember.

    The US Muslim population ranks us in the top 25% of Countries. If one
    falls in the top 25%, does that qualify as one of the largest Muslim
    populations in the world?

    “ABC now confirms, Obama’s speech in Cairo will focus on his Muslim rootsand the unique perspective it provides him.”

    If
    you followed the link in the weekly standard article, it goes to an ABC
    news report that does not say that? OUCH!!! What ABC news did say
    was:

    Obama is expected to highlight his own family story, with
    his Muslim relatives in Kenya and his childhood experiences growing up
    in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation. besides, if that is your source for news and information, then that explains it.

  • youcantstandthetruth

    My goodness, you do live in quite a bubble despite the one true comment, that Health Care is not free. What companies has it bankrupted and which jobs has it killed? Any idea which President holds the record for the largest % of the population having part time jobs? Oh, why I have that right here. RONALD the tarot card reading, tripled the deficit, cut and run Reagan! The beloved leader of the conservatives. Premium increases over the last 3 years have been the smallest in recent history. PPACA prohibits insurance companies from dropping coverage, Illegal aliens are not supported, it does not cover abortions, it does not come between a doctor and the patient, ther is no panel of IRS employees deciding who is worthy of care and less will be able to get coverage because of actions taken by Republicans at the state level. Family of 4 making 50K premium is not 14K??? Max premium would be 6.7% of income or less then 4K. Good news for you though, Ignorance is curable and pre existing conditions are now covered!

  • youcantstandthetruth

    Really? show us all that math cause I have been on the exchange and priced things, have you? You pay 35% in taxes? Now we all know who the liar is. Look in the mirror.

  • youcantstandthetruth

    Lets take a brief look at history. When Bush took office the budget was under 2 trillion, we had a budget surplus and were on track to ELIMINATE THE DEBT BY 2011. He increased spending with his first budget from 2 trillion to over 3.1 Trillion, an increase of over 50% and that did not include the wars. His last deficit was over 1.36 Trillion dollars and the projected deficits from him were all in the trillions. In every year he was President, he never balanced a budget and he and republicans had control of all 3 branches of Government for 6 years. Under Obama the deficit last FY was down to about 750 Billion, The Deficit has been reduced by about 50% since he took office. The Republicans in the House had the Gov. shut down. They are responsible for the things you claim. They were even told the Gov. would not be able to provide funds for fallen soldiers families if they shut down the Gov. and they did it anyway. Why does every republican try and take the BUSH FY 2009 DEFICIT of 1.36 TRillion and try to pin that on Obama? Bush published his 3.1 TRillion budget fr FY 2009 in FEb. of 2008, before the election and before Obama was elected. The CBO reported the FY 2009 deficit would be 1.2 Trillion in Jan. of 2009, before Obama took office. Of course that did not include the effect od the 8.9% drop n GDP in Dec. of 2008 that further increased the deficit beyond the 1.2 Trillion to the 1.36 Trillion. Where did the deficit stand at the end of FY 2009, the bush numbers? 11.7 Trillion. Where is it today 16.7 Trillion. So under Obama, the Deficit has increased by 5 trillion and prior to that the deficit was 11.7 Trillion? Only using Republican math is 5 trillion greater then 11.7 Trillion. Hey, what was the debt when bust took office ? 5.8 Trillion. Seems Bush is the President who increased the deficit by more then all previous. Even if you count the bush FY 2009 deficit to Obama, and start on Feb. 1 2009, (10.6 Trillion) Obama deficits would be 6.1 trillion. Again only using Republican math is 6.1 Trillion more then 10.6 Trillion. OUCH! .

  • youcantstandthetruth

    Most of the people commenting here don’t really know what they are talking about. They have no basis in reality. What a pity.

  • youcantstandthetruth

    Actually, he was:

    UC Law School statement: The Law School has received
    many media requests about Barack Obama, especially about his status as
    “Senior Lecturer.” From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in
    2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a
    Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004,
    during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are
    considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as
    professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. The title of Senior
    Lecturer is distinct from the title of Lecturer, which signifies adjunct
    status. Like Obama, each of the Law School’s Senior Lecturers have
    high-demand careers in politics or public service, which prevent
    full-time teaching. Several times during his 12 years as a professor in
    the Law School, Obama was invited to join the faculty in a full-time
    tenure-track position, but he declined.

    You guys don’t know much of anything on this site but you do have vivid imaginations.

  • Terri King

    I have a family member who has already checked into the ACA for her family, and yes it is over $14,000 a year for a family of 4, with before tax income of $50 K. You are the one living in a bubble. It does cover abortions and illegals are covered. I have no reason to make this up, even democrats are calling it a train wreck. As for Ronald Reagan, I lived through the Jimmy Carter years . . . The price of gasoline tripled, construction of any sort screeched to a halt, unemployment ow shgh and inflation quickly grew. Ronald Reagan wasn’t perfect, bt he was a much better president than what we have now. He loved this country, he respected our military. Also, name calling shows ignorance.

  • MitchHoff

    Also, Rat, when you wear the dress that you KKK guys wear, don’t your high heels get caught in the hem of your dress? I understand that after you have burned a cross at your KKK rally, you gals go back to your motel, take off your KKK dress, and have pillow fights while wearing nothing but little girl underwear. Is that true?

    As for your biker gang, I stumbled into a biker bar once and all the guys were kissing one another; so I got the hell out of there. Dam, Rat Cole, you live one fuckin’ kinky life.

  • Rat Cole

    HA HA HA HA. You’re a real funny guy. Stupid but funny.

  • MitchHoff

    I’m stupid? I don’t put on a stupid fuckin’ robe with an even stupider pointy hat and dance around a burning cross like a bunch of halfwits. Who in the fuck do you think you are, to think that by virtue of your membership in the KKK you are smarter than anybody? It really takes a moral degenerate to belong to the KKK, and you, Rat Cole, are one dumb fuckin’ moral degenerate. Do you honestly think that anybody with a modicum of intelligence would belong to the KKK?

    Scum like you have no place on the earth–You, Rat Cole, are the inferior one, and there is nothing you can say or do that will change that.

    I have read that one of the rites of initiation into the KKK requires you to wear little girl panties at you rallies, and based on what I have heard from you, I believe it’s true.

  • MitchHoff

    And, by the way, I asked this in an earlier post after you put down the President.

    What the fuck have you done with your life? Name one thing you have done in your entire life that makes you anything more than a total and complete KKK scumbag. Do you belong to the KKK because they are the only group of degenerates that would have you? So, name one thing you have done in your life…just one.

    You can’t you miserable fuck.

  • Rat Cole

    you sure are concerned with little girls panties. what are you, a child molester? do you have an inferiority complex? or were your parents brother and sister. that’s probably why you’re a retard? yeah, a complete fuckin’ idiot like your nigger.

  • MitchHoff

    Hey, you are the guy who belongs to a group of inbreds and child molesters.

    Again, you seem to be so hell bent on demeaning Barack Obama, as if you are smarter than him. You may be delusional enough to think you are; but seriously Rat, think about it; what have you done in your life that makes you worth anything to this country? What contributions have you made to this country? What contributions have you made to anybody’s life? You belong to the KKK, which is an organization that is comprised of losers, ingrates, illiterates, undereducated, filth.

    By the way, how do we know the toothbrush was invented by a KKK member? Because if it was invented by anybody else, it would be called the teethbrush. (Just had to interject a little humor into the discussion–but that doesn’t mean you’re not a miserable degenerate).

    Here is the Kaiser calculator for a family of 4, 50K, a year. Silver plan The premium after subsidy is $3,365.00, not 14K.

    Results
    Household income in 2014:212% of poverty level Unsubsidized annual health insurance premium in 2014: $9,416

    Maximum % of income you have to pay for the non-tobacco premium, if eligible for a subsidy: 6.73%
    Amount you pay for the premium:
    $3,365 per year

    (which equals 6.73% of your household income and
    covers 36% of the overall premium)
    You could receive a government tax credit subsidy of up to $6,050
    (which covers 64% of the overall premium)

    Here, look for yourself. You won’t believe your lying eyes.

    You do not remember very well. Good news though, pre existing conditions are covered! Gas prices at that time peaked in 82. That was 2 years into the Reign of the beloved leader. Unemployment peaked at about 10.4% in 82, again under the beloved leader. What was it when Carter left in 1/81? 7.5% Your memory is defiantly not very good.

    Maybe some day you might even cite a proof source for anything you claim? Nahhh I doubt it. By the way, I see you chose to not answer any of my questions? When one accurately depicts the actions of another, it is not name calling. Reagan cut and ran from the bombing that killed 200+ marines. He did triple the deficit! Why, you did not know that? Does not surprise me. And Nancy’s Tarot card reading is, well, general knowledge.

  • Alan L Baughman

    Being “regarded as” and “considered to be” a professor is NOT the same as BEING a professor. He was a lecturer. You said so yourself. Now you are arguing with yourself. Thank you for validating what I had already stated.

  • youcantstandthetruth

    I had no idea we were having an argument? Since you appear to like “word games” I guess we can argue cause no where did I say (or in reality the release from UofC nowhere says “considered to be a professor”. Why are you so compelled to make up things that are clearly not in my response or in the response from the school? Can you not read? The school statement clearly said;

    “Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are REGARDED as professors”.

    No where did they say he is considered to be a Professor? He was CONSIDERED to be a member of the Law School Faculty and REGARDED as a professor. The schools policy allows him to use the title. Go back to your false claim; “and U of C let it slide”. It is quite apparent they did not “let it slide”. Man up! admit your “mistake” and be grateful your ignorance on the topic is cured. Good news, Obamacare covers existing conditions.

    Seriously, Since Carter this has been an active plan. Hate to tell you, he was “Placed” into office, like Reagan onward, and this time is WAS for his color. It is to ensure that no other person of color attains the highest office, because they will be viewed as aspiring third world dictators. It gives them THE reason to chip every child born in the USA to prove they ARE citizens so a foreigner can never be placed into office again by “accident.” He is the ultimate patsy for the NWO. He follows their orders and they make an example out of him at the same time, while changing our nation so that it is incorporated into the NWO. Basically creating a Nova Roma, or the New Rome, and in Empire except it is the entire planet this time.

  • Thomas Albert

    Dude, not cool. The fact he’s a scumbag is plenty. Picking on him because of a genetic situation is plain wrong. Yes, he is destroying America, and yes he was placed there so that those who control from behind the scenes and manipulate your thinking so you express racism when you are really angry over what the system does to you. You really only have 2 choices, Learn to Goose Step, or REVOLT.

    The writer says “as he was elected to do” totally discredits the article. First of all, Presidents are selected, not elected. Second of all, anything that happens in politics is planned ahead of time, even Franklin D Roosevelt testified to this. If we have (& we will) a collapse – it was planned all along. Look up “Fiat Currency” & pull your heads out of your collective asses. Good luck to you all. It was fun while it lasted!!!!

    What are you, retarded? Obama specifically stated that “And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world,” Mr. Obama said. “And so there’s got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples.”

    America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President

    When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.
    Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.

    1. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:
    June 2013 – The Obama Department of Justice defunds a Young Marines chapter in Louisiana because their oath mentioned God, and another youth program because it permits a voluntary student-led prayer. [1]

    February 2013 – The Obama Administration announces that the rights of religious conscience for individuals will not be protected under the Affordable Care Act. [2]

    January 2013 – Pastor Louie Giglio is pressured to remove himself from praying at the inauguration after it is discovered he once preached a sermon supporting the Biblical definition of marriage. [3]

    November 2011 – Unlike previous presidents, Obama studiously avoids any religious references in his Thanksgiving speech. [8]

    August 2011 – The Obama administration releases its new health care rules that override religious conscience protections for medical workers in the areas of abortion and contraception. [9]

    April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring. [10]

    February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress. [11]

    January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court. [12]

    November 2010 – Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law. [13]

    October 19, 2010 – Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions. [14]

    April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name be covered when he is making his speech. [16]

    April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, Obama nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three. [17]

    February 2009 – Obama announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs, and fully implements the plan in February 2011. [18]

    April 2008 – Obama speaks disrespectfully of Christians, saying they “cling to guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” [19]

    2. Acts of hostility from the Obama-led military toward people of Biblical faith:
    August 2013 – A Department of Defense military training manual teaches soldiers that people who talk about “individual liberties, states’ rights, and how to make the world a better place” are”extremists.” It also lists the Founding Fathers — those “colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule” — as examples of those involved in “extremist ideologies and movements.” [20]

    August 2013 – A Senior Master Sergeant was removed from his position and reassigned because he told his openly lesbian squadron commander that she should not punish a staff sergeant who expressed his views in favor of traditional marriage. [21]

    August 2013 – The military does not provide heterosexual couples specific paid leave to travel to a state just for the purpose of being married, but it did extend these benefits to homosexual couples who want to marry, thus giving them preferential treatment not available to heterosexuals. [22]

    August 2013 – The Air Force, in the midst of having launched a series of attacks against those expressing traditional religious or moral views, invited a drag queen group to perform at a base. [23]

    July 2013 – When an Air Force sergeant with years of military service questioned a same-sex marriage ceremony performed at the Air Force Academy’s chapel, he received a letter of reprimand telling him that if he disagreed, he needed to get out of the military. His current six-year reenlistment was then reduced to only one-year, with the notification that he “be prepared to retire at the end of this year.” [24]

    July 2013 – An Air Force chaplain who posted a website article on the importance of faith and the origin of the phrase “There are no atheists in foxholes” was officially ordered to remove his post because some were offended by the use of that famous World War II phrase. [25]

    June 2013 – The U. S. Air Force, in consultation with the Pentagon, removed an inspirational painting that for years has been hanging at Mountain Home Air Force Base because its title was “Blessed Are The Peacemakers” — a phrase from Matthew 5:9 in the Bible. [26]

    June 2013 – The Obama administration “strongly objects” to a Defense Authorization amendment to protect the constitutionally-guaranteed religious rights of soldiers and chaplains, claiming that it would have an “adverse effect on good order, discipline, morale, and mission accomplishment.” [27]

    May 2013 – The Pentagon announces that “Air Force members are free to express their personal religious beliefs as long as it does not make others uncomfortable. “Proselytizing (inducing someone to convert to one’s faith) goes over that line,” [28] affirming if a sharing of faith makes someone feel uncomfortable that it could be a court-marital offense [29] — the military equivalent of a civil felony.

    May 2013 – An Air Force officer was actually made to remove a personal Bible from his own desk because it “might” appear that he was condoning the particular religion to which he belonged. [30]

    April 2013 – Officials briefing U.S. Army soldiers placed “Evangelical Christianity” and “Catholicism” in a list that also included Al-Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, and Hamas as examples of “religious extremism.” [31]

    April 2013 – The Air Force creates a “religious tolerance” policy but consults only a militant atheist group to do so — a group whose leader has described military personnel who are religious as ‘spiritual rapists’ and ‘human monsters’ [33] and who also says that soldiers who proselytize are guilty of treason and sedition and should be punished to hold back a “tidal wave of fundamentalists.” [34]

    January 2013 – President Obama announced his opposition to a provision in the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act protecting the rights of conscience for military chaplains. [35]

    June 2012 – Bibles for the American military have been printed in every conflict since the American Revolution, but the Obama Administration revokes the long-standing U. S. policy of allowing military service emblems to be placed on those military Bibles. [36]

    May 2012 – The Obama administration opposed legislation to protect the rights of conscience for military chaplains who do not wish to perform same-sex marriages in violation of their strongly-held religious beliefs. [37]

    April 2012 – A checklist for Air Force Inns will no longer include ensuring that a Bible is available in rooms for those who want to use them. [38]

    February 2012 – The U. S. Military Academy at West Point disinvites three star Army general and decorated war hero Lieutenant General William G. (“Jerry”) Boykin (retired) from speaking at an event because he is an outspoken Christian. [39]

    February 2012 – The Air Force removes “God” from the patch of Rapid Capabilities Office (the word on the patch was in Latin: Dei). [40]

    February 2012 – The Army ordered Catholic chaplains not to read a letter to parishioners that their archbishop asked them to read. [41]

    November 2011 – The Air Force Academy rescinds support for Operation Christmas Child, a program to send holiday gifts to impoverished children across the world, because the program is run by a Christian charity. [42]

    August 2011 – The Air Force stops teaching the Just War theory to officers in California because the course is taught by chaplains and is based on a philosophy introduced by St. Augustine in the third century AD – a theory long taught by civilized nations across the world (except now, America). [46]

    June 2011 – The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burial ceremonies at Houston National Cemetery. [47]

    January 2010 – Because of “concerns” raised by the Department of Defense, tiny Bible verse references that had appeared for decades on scopes and gunsights were removed. [48]

    3. Acts of hostility toward Biblical values:
    August 2013 – Non-profit charitable hospitals, especially faith-based ones, will face large fines or lose their tax-exempt status if they don’t comply with new strangling paperwork requirements related to giving free treatment to poor clients who do not have Obamacare insurance coverage. [49] Ironically, the first hospital in America was founded as a charitable institution in 1751 by Benjamin Franklin, and its logo was the Good Samaritan, with Luke 10:35 inscribed below him: “Take care of him, and I will repay thee,” being designed specifically to offer free medical care to the poor. [50] Benjamin Franklin’s hospital would likely be fined unless he placed more resources and funds into paperwork rather than helping the poor under the new faith-hostile policy of the Obama administration.

    August 2013 – USAID, a federal government agency, shut down a conference in South Korea the night before it was scheduled to take place because some of the presentations were not pro-abortion but instead presented information on abortion complications, including the problems of “preterm births, mental health issues, and maternal mortality” among women giving birth who had previous abortions. [51]

    June 2013 – The Obama Administration finalizes requirements that under the Obamacare insurance program, employers must make available abortion-causing drugs, regardless of the religious conscience objections of many employers and even despite the directive of several federal courts to protect the religious conscience of employers. [52]

[82]
    Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.

    Obama’s Anti-Christian America

    Yesterday I wrote about how Obama is cozying up to Muslims, merrily turning the US into a dhimmi state. The obverse of this is his unending war against Christianity. The United States of America – once known as the light on a hill – is increasingly becoming known as the darkness in the pit. Obama’s cavalier attitude to Christianity both at home and abroad is showing up big time.

    His administration has been the most anti-Christian government yet in the US, as I have often documented before. Plenty more examples can be offered, so I present four more recent cases of how the BHO administration is showing its true colours in its war against the Christian faith.

    Consider the first example: the US now sees Bibles as a “threat to national security.” Yes you heard me right. One news report covers the story this way: “The U.S. Military has revoked its approval of a series of military-themed Bibles, reportedly over trademark issues. Now, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation is demanding that all remaining versions of the Bibles be removed from base exchanges — calling them a ‘threat to national security.’

    “The military series of Bibles were published by B&H Publishing, a division of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation’s largest non-Catholic denomination. They published four versions of the Holman Christian Standard Bible – representing the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.

    “The Bibles are tailored to each specific military branch. For example, the cover of the Marine version says ‘The Marines’ Bible’ – along with the USMC emblem. The Bibles contain special prayers and devotional material for military personnel.

    “But the Military Religious Freedom Foundation complained that the Bibles were an official endorsement by the U.S. Military. They alleged the Bibles not only violated the U.S. Constitution, but also violated Defense Department regulations.”

    OK, I think I got it now – the US Military believes reading a Bible will undermine its fighting capability, but having homosexuals actively doing their thing on base or in the field of combat will somehow contribute to our national security. Yep, makes perfect sense to me.

    And while the government cozies up to Muslims, it is doing nothing to help Christians being slaughtered in Islamic countries. The next three examples speak directly to this. First, it seems that the State Department has decided to simply ignore religious freedom violations. As one report states, “The U.S. State Department removed the sections covering religious freedom from the Country Reports on Human Rights that it released on May 24, three months past the statutory deadline Congress set for the release of these reports.

    “The new human rights reports – purged of the sections that discuss the status of religious freedom in each of the countries covered – are also the human rights reports that include the period that covered the Arab Spring and its aftermath.

    “Thus, the reports do not provide in-depth coverage of what has happened to Christians and other religious minorities in predominantly Muslim countries in the Middle East that saw the rise of revolutionary movements in 2011 in which Islamist forces played an instrumental role.

    “For the first time ever, the State Department simply eliminated the section of religious freedom in its reports covering 2011 and instead referred the public to the 2010 International Religious Freedom Report – a full two years behind the times – or to the annual report of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), which was released last September and covers events in 2010 but not 2011.”

    Another writer explains the significance of all this: “The 1998 International Religious Freedom Act mandated that the State Department take several actions in furtherance of human rights. This included the creation of an Office of International Religious Freedom and the preparation of annual human right reports, to be supplemented with details of violations of religious freedom listed country by country. The State Department must also indicate those countries whose violations are most egregious as ‘Countries of Particular Concern’ and to take actions to counter these transgressions as part and parcel of U.S. foreign policy.

    “Religious freedom is considered a fundamental human right. If one is denied the right to worship his god and maintain his own conscience, what other freedom can be had? The Founding Fathers, some of whom fled other countries due to religious persecution, held up religious freedom as paramount. It therefore constitutes a basic underpinning of the very existence of the United States, and its importance is reflected as the first freedom in America’s founding documents.

    “Countries that persecute, restrict or oppress religious minorities often pressure people to recant their faith, deny them the right to worship publicly and to erect houses of worship, and discriminate against them in education, housing and employment. More egregious abuses include torture, flogging, financial fines, imprisonment and even execution. Approximately 50 percent of the world’s population lives under religiously oppressive regimes. Virtually all of the member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the largest Islamic organization in the world, are among them.”

    And my last piece gives a perfect illustration of this: a gruesome video of a Christian in Egypt being beheaded is an example of what is taking place around the world under Obama’s watch. As one article states, “Since Mr. Obama’s entry into office, Christians have been slaughtered throughout the Bloody Crescent with hardly a peep from the U.S. State Department or the White House. Nigerian human rights activist Emmanuel Ogebe recently reported that more Christians have been killed by Islamist Boko Haram than NATO troops have been killed in Afghanistan.

    “Hundreds of thousands of Christians have fled Iraq. They’ve fled into Syria, of all places. Operation Iraqi Freedom has not protected them. In fact, their lot has been made much worse since the Bush administration toppled Saddam Hussein and allowed, in fact, required a new Iraqi constitution containing a repugnancy clause. State Department advisers insisted upon this clause. It says that notwithstanding anything else in the new constitution, nothing shall be done by the Iraq government that is ‘repugnant’ to Islam. Well, among the things repugnant to Islam is saying ‘Jesus is Lord.’ That will get you killed.

    “It did get a young Tunisian Christian killed. Recently, Egyptian TV showed the horror of a young convert from Islam to Christianity being beheaded. The Egyptian new anchor, to his credit, cried out: ‘Is this what we want here?’And he asked the anguished question: ‘How will these people govern?’”

    Barnabas Fund was one of the few groups to report this murder: “Video footage of a convert from Islam to Christianity being murdered by Muslims has been shown on Egyptian TV. The graphic incident, which is reported to have taken place in Tunisia, was aired on a programme called Egypt Today. The footage shows a young man being held down by masked men with a knife to his throat. One man chants a number of Muslim prayers in Arabic, mostly condemning Christianity. The man holding the knife to the Christian convert’s throat begins to cut, slowly severing the head amid cries of ‘Allahu Akbar’ (‘god is great’).”

    There is a clear correspondence here: the more pro-Islam the Obama administration becomes, the more anti-Christian it becomes as well. Indeed, in order to placate and suck up to his Muslim masters, he of course has to downplay massacres, persecution, torture and attacks on Christians in Muslim nations.

    We know which side Obama butters his bread, and it sure is not Christianity. The president will go down in history as the most cowardly, Muslim-appeasing president of all time. That is bad enough, but in the process he is unleashing dhimmitude in America, propping up enemies of freedom and democracy abroad, and seeing Christians killed in huge numbers.

    Shame Barack Hussein Obama, shame.

    In his speech to the United Nations General Assembly today the President of the United States declared that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. Already, the media and the left are in full denial, probably based on their general lack of understanding of theology. This would have been a gaffe had Mitt Romney said it. But with Barack Obama, he’s just speaking bold truths. His bold truth declares that the future does not belong to practicing Christians.

    Pay careful attention to what he says.

    The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.

    Now, that’s the full paragraph so no one can claim I took him out of context.

    But consider this.

    It is an orthodox Christian belief that Mohammed is not a prophet. Actual Christians, as opposed to many of the supposed Christians put up by the mainstream media, believe that Christ is the only way to salvation. Believing that is slandering Mohammed. That’s just a fact. If you don’t believe me, you go into the MIddle East and proclaim Christ is the way, the truth, and the life and see what happens to your life.

    Then Barack Obama went on to say “Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied.” Note he says we cannot “slander the prophet of Islam” but it’s only the image of Christ in the next sentence — not actually Christ himself desecrated. If this is so, why does Barack Obama’s government continue funding the National Endowment for the Arts, which funded Christ in piss, the Virgin Mary painted in dung, etc.?

    Now, in point of fact, this is a major difference between Islam and Christianity. Christ came to this world as an enemy of the world and expected to be impugned. He also tells his followers that they should expect to be impugned. There is joy in being persecuted for following the Risen Lord. In Islam, if you impugn Mohammed, you get a fatwa on your butt.

    American Catholics are mobilizing for the biggest campaign of mass civil disobedience since the end of segregation. U.S. Catholic bishops are calling on Catholics to defy the Obama administration’s contraceptive mandate. This comes in addition to numerous lawsuits launched by 46 plaintiffs from dioceses, universities and hospitals against the administration’s order that compels religious organizations to subsidize birth control, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs. The mandate is an unprecedented assault upon the Catholic Church’s conscience rights and religious freedom, blatantly usurping the First Amendment.
    The state is forcing churches, as well as synagogues and mosques, to consent to President Obama’s radical secular agenda. Otherwise, their institutions – hospitals, schools, universities and charities – will face stiff penalties and eventually close down. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is launching a campaign called the Fortnight for Freedom, from June 21 until July 4. Its goal: alert Catholics – and all freedom-loving Americans – to the impending threat posed by Mr. Obama’s power grab. The contraceptive mandate is scheduled to take effect on Aug 1.
    Mr. Obama is waging an ideological war against the Catholic Church. His mandate is essentially telling the church that it can no longer follow its central teachings on abortion, contraception and sterilization – or else it risks massive fines. Mr. Obama seeks to make himself, not Pope Benedict XVI, the head of the Roman Catholic Church. He is behaving like an ancient Roman emperor. He is claiming the state can impose its pagan morality upon the church’s institutions. We are sliding back to third-century Rome.
    Mr. Obama embodies the secular fanaticism at the heart of modern liberalism – and by extension, its animating dark impulse: anti-Christian bigotry. For decades, liberals have sought to purge religion from the public square. The Ten Commandments have been taken down from courthouses. Prayer in public schools is banned. Darwinian evolution – one of the greatest intellectual hoaxes of all time – is regularly taught to students. Christians are routinely vilified and mocked in popular culture. Mr. Obama represents the culmination of leftist Christophobia.
    Under Obamacare, Americans will be forced to subsidize abortions. Hence, devout Christians, along with other religious believers, will have to finance a procedure that is not only morally abominable but theologically prohibited. Abortion is murder. In America, more than 50 million unborn babies have been exterminated – a holocaust. Obamacare would make Christians complicit in state-sanctioned infanticide.
    Now Mr. Obama’s contraceptive mandate is targeting Catholics for their views on birth control. Since America’s inception, religious groups have had their liberties preserved; only they – not the state or an established church – could determine their fundamental beliefs. Mr. Obama is not only trampling on basic freedoms, he is classifying Catholics as second-class citizens, who should be stripped of their conscience rights and religious liberties. He is erecting a socialist secular superstate in which the Catholic Church is to be suppressed. It is a form of Jim Crow – discrimination against an entire category of people encoded in law – masquerading as “women’s health care.”
    This is why the USCCB is calling for massive, peaceful, civil disobedience. Devout Catholics will not sacrifice their freedoms – or their faith – on the altar of radical liberalism. They should defy and ignore the contraceptive mandate. If the administration insists on imposing fines, don’t pay them. The same applies for Obamacare’s taxpayer funding of abortion. Catholics must take a stand. If Mr. Obama and his liberal thugs want to throw defiant Christians in jail, then let them go ahead. The church is replete with martyrs. Widespread disobedience will trigger the downfall of the state church of liberalism, exposing its anti-Christian, authoritarian nature.
    Unless Christians defend their faith, they will become a persecuted minority. If you think I’m exaggerating, just look north of the border. In the June 11 issue of National Review, Michael Coren, a Canadian TV personality and columnist, documents in chilling detail how Canada’s same-sex marriage law is being used to criminalize the Catholic Church.
    In 2005, Canada legalized homosexual marriage. According to Mr. Coren, there have been more than 200 cases – through the courts, “human rights” commissions and employment panels – against opponents of same-sex marriage. Critics have been fired or sued. For example, Bishop Fred Henry was charged with human rights violations for sending a letter to churches in Calgary that simply restated the Catholic Church’s position on traditional marriage. Mr. Coren says that two Canadian provinces are contemplating bills that would make it illegal for teachers in private, religious schools to criticize homosexual marriage. The article states that a senior government official in Ontario – the country’s most powerful province – vowed that if the Catholic Church did not embrace same-sex marriage and homosexuality, then it “would have to change its teaching.” In other words, liberals are laying the groundwork to ban opposition to homosexual marriage and their larger agenda by claiming it is a “hate crime.” This is creeping, soft totalitarianism; the drive to censor, ostracize and eventually eradicate traditional Christianity.
    The secular left understands that there is one last institutional bulwark standing in its way: the Roman Catholic Church. Mr. Obama’s support for same-sex marriage, homosexuals in the military, abortion on demand, free birth control and embryonic stem-cell research are all part of an attempt to forge a moral revolution – to create what he calls a “post-Christian nation.” In order to succeed, he must break the Church’s will and coerce its institutions to serve his radical aims.
    Contrary to myth, liberals are intolerant. They have now awakened the ire of the Catholic Church. We will show them they have gone too far.

    And yes, you’re a paid Gestapo troll and no, I didn’t use one or two or three sources. Math Mitch, MATH!

    The fact of the matter is that there is absolutely no arguing with a liberal. Especially a paid government troll.

    MitchHoff, Frank said the HOUSE sent the appropriations to the SENATE. He didn’t say the CONGRESS sent them. And who can tell me what happened over in Benghazi on 9/11 when our 4 American people got killed and the STAND DOWN ORDER was given 2 or 3 times not to help them, and why was that.
