In this Presidential election, there are two choices: John McCain (an American hero that has proven he is willing to step outside his party’s lines and work for the good of the people, and Barak Hussein Obama (why can’t we use his full name?), who in my opinion is a grave danger to our country. If you have read my past blogs then you know my feelings on Obama. He is nothing more than an empty suit. He promises “change” but what exactly is his idea of change? A change in the way the majority of Americans live? A change in the stance against our sworn enemies? What exactly is the change? Oddly enough, even though people say they are going to vote for him they can’t answer that question. They may mumble something about change from the Bush administration. I will admit that there have been things that Bush has done that I did not agree with. However, the war on terror is not one of those things! How many times have terrorists stuck on American soil since he took office? 09-11-01, that was the first and last time. In my position, I receive alerts and reports from various governmental agencies. You have no idea how many attacks have been prevented due to the Bush policies and the Patriot Act. But Democrats would gladly shut down the Patriot act if they could. Any wonder why the Democratic controlled House and Senate have the lowest approval ratings in history?
All my life I have heard that a person is known by the party they keep. Let’s take a look at the people that Obama has kept in his close circle of friends (until it appeared that his relationship with them would jeopardize his election).
As many of you are aware, Wright was (see above note for why he “no longer is”) Obama’s pastor and spiritual mentor for twenty years. All of you have seen the videos and heard the “sermons” so there really isn’t need to discuss them here. I will however discuss the “theology” behind Wright, who as I stated was extremely close to Obama, and likely still is just not in public.
Wright started the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago on March 1, 1972. The church’s mission statement (which you can find by clicking the name above) is based upon Black Liberation Theology. Black Liberation Theology has its roots in Marxism which among its many tenants include: A belief that capitalism is based on the exploitation of workers by the owners of the means of production. If you think about it that is where Obama leans. Rich people should be punished for being rich and their rewards handed out to the less fortunate. Never mind the fact that the rich usually get that way by working hard and climbing the social ladder (except those born into a trust fund which never learn how to work). The Conservative view of success is how many people no longer need government assistance while the Liberal idea is the more people they are providing help for the more successful they are. Talk about a screwed up philosophy.
Black Liberation Theology was systemized by author James Cone in his book Black Theology and Black Power (1969). Cone first addressed the theology after Malcolm X’s proclamation that Christianity is a “white man’s religion”. In fact Cone stated that Malcolm X was “not far wrong” in stating that “black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer and we had better kill him”. Now ask yourself this. Obama attended this church for several years, Wright was a close friend and spiritual adviser to Obama, but he would have us believe that he never heard Wright express any of the things that were released to the media? Talk about wanting us to drink the Kool Aid. The very church itself is based on the theology! If you wish to study more about Black Liberation Theology then click the link in the above paragraph for information from Wikipedia, where some of this information was gathered.
Still not convinced he is even more dangerous than your run of the mill liberal? Remember that Black Liberation Theology has its roots in Marxism? There are photographs (not doctored) all over the web showing Che Guevera flags hanging in his campaign offices
Che Guevera once said "The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind!" raved Ernesto "Che" Guevara in 1961. "Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination. We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies' very home, to his places of work and recreation. The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we'll destroy him! We must keep our hatred against them [the U.S.] alive and fan it to paroxysms!" Sound familiar? Sort of like Islamic terrorists?
During the Cuban Missile crisis Che Guevera stated: "If the nuclear missiles had remained we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City," he boasted. "The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims." Guevera wished for a world dominated by socialism, a form of Marxism. Che Guevera flags in a campaign office? Makes you wonder just what change he has in mind doesn’t it.
Ayers is a “distinguished” professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In the 1960’s and 1970’s he was involved in violent activism. In 1969 he co-founded the militant radical left group called Weatherman which was later changed to the Weather Underground Organization. The Organizations founding document called for the establishment of a “white fighting force” to be allied with the “Black Liberation Movement” and other “anti-colonial” movements to achieve “the destruction of US imperialism and achieve a classless world: world communism.
The group carried out a program of bombings, jailbreaks and riots. They bombed government buildings to include the Pentagon and the US Capitol, banks, Police Departments, state and federal courthouses and state prison offices.
In 2001, Ayers stated in an interview that he “didn’t regret setting the bombs” and that “I feel that we didn’t do enough.” Ayers and Obama served together on the Woods Fund Board from 1999 until Obama left in 2002. Ayers also hosted Obama’s first fund raising reception in his first Illinois State Senate campaign in 1995. Obama has “criticized” Ayers for his actions but it just leaves more questions than answers.
Obama’s list of Campaign Contributions reads like a list of who’s who among the Hollywood elite. I don’t know about you but I can’t imagine sitting around thinking about who a particular actor is going to vote for so I can emulate them. That list includes Oprah Winfrey, who has refused to have Sarah Palin on the show because she doesn’t want to use the show for political reasons…unless of course it’s having Obama on there. Among the list of donors, there are two that issues have been raised about. What? You haven’t seen it in the media…wonder why? Palestinian brothers Edwin Monir and Edwan Hosam donated $29,500 to Obama’s campaign and listed their state as Georgia. In fact the brothers made the donations from inside the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip. They said that they purchased Obama T-shirts to sell in Gaza. You can see the proof of the donations here:
Campaign donations . In fact go to the Campaign Contributions above and just read through the lists of names that have donated. The brother’s contributions open the door for questions about how lax the donation site is for Obama. Donations from outside the US are illegal but the site doesn’t stop it. Now why would Palestinians in Hamas controlled Gaza donate to the Obama campaign? Answer that one for yourself!
In closing I wish to provide just a little more insight into Obama, by providing some of the quotes from his books: Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope;Thoughts on reclaiming The American Dream.
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction”
“My friends we live in the greatest nation in the world. I hope you will join me as we try to change it” (What?)
“I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by so doing I was ingratiating myself to whites”
“I found solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race”
“To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist Professors and structural feminists.
The call to Islamic prayer is” one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset”
Lastly a few quotes from his wife, Michelle:
“For the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is making a comeback”
"The truth is most Americans don't want much. Folks don't want the whole pie. Most Americans feel blessed to thrive a little bit, but that's out of reach for them. The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more." (Marxism at it’s finest)
Is he really “The One?”
