64 Ways Obama is Sabotaging Trump

President Obama delivers his farewell speech in Chicago on Jan. 10, 2017 (Photo: Screenshot) WASHINGTON – It might seem outrageous and unprecedented that a newly departed president would devote himself to overthrowing his successor, but that is exactly what a mountain of growing evidence appears to indicate. “Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is… Continue reading “64 Ways Obama Is Sabotaging Trump’s Presidency” »

The Roots of Black Lives Matter Unveiled

Editor’s Note: This is a special report from the AIM Center for Investigative Journalism. By James Simpson The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against… Continue reading “EXPOSED: “Black Lives Matter” Marxist Agitprop” »

The President’s Speech
Thomas Sowell

POTUS Obama gave speech to nation 12-06-15 in which he restated his views about recent California Terrorist Shootings, US response to continuing ISIS aggression, and related issues.

POTUS Obama gave speech to nation 12-06-15 in which he restated his views about recent California Terrorist Shootings, US response to continuing ISIS aggression, and related issues.

When the President of the United States asks the television networks to set aside time for him to broadcast a speech from the Oval Office, we can usually expect that he has something new to say. But President Obama’s speech Sunday night was just a rehash of what he has been saying all along, trying to justify policies that have repeatedly turned out disastrously for America and our allies.

This was not a speech about how the Obama administration is going to do anything differently in the future. It was a speech about how Obama’s policies were right all along. Obama is one of those people who are often wrong but never in doubt.

The president struck a familiar chord when he emphasized that we shouldn’t blame all Muslims for the actions of a few. How many people have you heard blaming all Muslims?

Even if 90 percent of all Muslims are fine people, and we admit 10,000 refugees from the Middle East, does that mean that we need not be concerned about adding a thousand potential terrorists — even after we have seen in San Bernardino what just two terrorists can do?

The first responsibility of any government is to protect the people already in the country. Even in this age of an entitlement mentality, no one in a foreign country is entitled to be in America if the American people don’t want them here.

Obama’s talk about how we should not make religious distinctions might make sense if we were talking about handing out entitlements. But we are talking about distinguishing between different populations posing different levels of danger to the American people.

When it comes to matters of life and death, that is no time for the kind of glib, politically correct rhetoric that Barack Obama specializes in.

Obama may think of himself as a citizen of the world, but he was elected President of the United States, not head of a world government, and that does not authorize him to gamble the lives of Americans for the benefit of people in other countries.

The illusion that you can take in large numbers of people from a fundamentally different culture, without jeopardizing your own culture — and everything that depends on it — should have been dispelled by many counterproductive social consequences in Europe, even aside from the fatal dangers of terrorists.

Most refugees in the Middle East can be helped in the Middle East, and many Americans would undoubtedly be willing to financially help Muslim countries like Jordan or Egypt to care for these refugees in societies more compatible with their beliefs and values.

The history of millions of European immigrants who came here in centuries past was fundamentally different from what is happening in our own times.

First of all, those immigrants were stopped at Ellis Island to be checked medically and otherwise, and were allowed to get off that island to go ashore only after they had met whatever legal standards there were. Otherwise, they were sent back where they came from.

More fundamentally, people came here to assimilate into the American society they found, not to become isolated enclaves of aggrieved foreigners, demanding that Americans adjust to their languages, their values and their ways of life.

Like so much that President Obama says, his talk of “stronger screening” of people coming into the United States is sheer fantasy, when even his own intelligence officials and law enforcement officials say that we have no adequate data on which to base a meaningful screening of Syrian refugees.

When Obama spoke of the danger of our being “drawn once more into a long and costly ground war in Iraq or Syria,” that was yet another fantasy, that wars are optional.

When terrorists are at war with us, we cannot simply declare that war to be over, whenever it is politically convenient, as Obama did when he withdrew American troops from Iraq, against the advice of his own generals. That is what led to the rise of ISIS.

Our only real choice is between destroying ISIS over there or waiting for them to come over here and start killing Americans. As in other cases, Obama has made a choice that reflects politics and rhetoric, rather than reality.

 

Mizzou Student Demonstrations seeking misguided, impractical, and idealistic socialistic reforms for U.S. colleges

Mizzou student demonstrations seeking naïve, misguided, impractical, and idealistic reforms for U.S. colleges reflecting socialistic indoctrination by professors propagating Marxist agitprop

If You’re Outraged And You Don’t Know Why, This Column Is for You
By Matt Barber

If you’re outraged and don’t know why, then this column is for you.

Trigger warning: If you’re one of those precious little snowflakes who #StandWithMizzou and support the #MillionStudentMarch, be warned: the following contains potentially “hurtful” microaggressions that may invade the reality-free sanctuary of your Safe Space™ and leave you cowering in the fetal position.

If this is you, then read at your own risk.

For everyone else, let’s define the terms:

  • Trigger: noun, 1. potentially distressful words or learning materials likely to cause PTSD in Millennials who’ve been helicopter-parented into a frozen state of perpetual dysfunction. Paradoxically the word “trigger” is, itself, a trigger, as it is likely to evoke images of scary, loud bang-bangs.
  • Trigger warning: noun, 1. the self-wrought burden bohemian professors now face to preemptively pamper and advise the little monsters of their own making that they’re about to say something that might send them into a fear-driven and jaw-droppingly disrespectful frenzy of utterly irrational, self-righteous indignation (see schadenfreude).
  • Microaggressions: noun, 1. any innocuous word or phrase that, whether intentional or not, gives a liberal an excuse to feign offense (e.g., “America is exceptional;” “When it comes to race, I’m colorblind;” or, “You microaggress like a girl”).
  • Safe Space: noun, 1. progressive circle of self-entitled, “everyone-gets-a-trophy” pansies free of critical thinking, differing opinions, reality and oxygen.

At the heart of all this is rebellion for the sake of rebellion. It was bad in the ’60s, but it’s far worse now. At least in the ’60s the misguided revolutionaries had the courage of their convictions and would face down the National Guard. Today, they flee, arms in the air, for their Safe Space™ vacuum chamber.

Ayn Rand once wrote, “You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.”

Those consequences are on display now.

It’s been said—by whom I don’t recall—that, to conservatives, George Orwell’s 1984was a cautionary tale. To “progressives,” it’s a how-to manual.

You thought last week’s outburst of faux outrage on America’s liberal college campuses was something new. It’s not. While it looks a bit like the countercultural hippie revolution of the 1960s (that’s the aesthetic they’re going for), today’s “Million Student March” and the other race-baiting, “white privilege,” hissy-fit “protests” at Mizzou, Yale and other colleges don’t characterize the counterculture at all. They are the culture. Conservative truth-tellers now represent the counter-culture.

Indeed, the neophyte Millennials raising their arms in the clenched fist salute (also known as the “Red Salute” by cultural Marxists such as the Soviet Bolsheviks during the Russian Civil War and Mao Tse-tung during the Chinese Civil War) are, unwittingly, conforming en masse to the empty romance of “progressive” non-conformity. Free thinkers? Hardly. These kids need an instruction manual for toilet paper. Cute as the little buggers may be, they’re just a gaggle of self-entitled, uber-naïve, malleable Marxist robots.

It’s eerily reminiscent of Chairman Mao’s youthful Chinese “Red Guard” (1966-76). As Encyclopedia Britannica notes, under Mao’s Communist regime, “groups of militant university and high school students [were] formed into paramilitary units as part of the Cultural Revolution.” These easily manipulated young people (sound familiar?) who responded “to his summons fancied themselves as new revolutionary rebels pledged to eliminating all remnants of the old culture in China, as well as purging all supposedly bourgeois elements within the government.” Mao sought to abolish what he called the “Four Olds”: old customs, old culture, old habits and old ideas.

How “progressive” of him.

Like the Chinese Red Guard, today’s American equivalent wants lots of free stuff—like free college—and likewise seeks to undermine, if not completely destroy, all traditional values. Mao’s platform shared the hallmarks of modern “progressivism”: entitlement, redistribution, moral relativism, atheism and tyranny.

“While engaging in marches, meetings, and frenzied propagandizing,” concludes Britannica, “Red Guard units attacked and persecuted local party leaders as well as schoolteachers and school officials, other intellectuals, and persons of traditional views. Several hundred thousand people died in the course of these persecutions.”

America’s Red Guard is just warming up. These “progressive” puppets protest everything at once and nothing at all. They demand that their liberal mentors move with them from the leftward fringes, straight off the cliff’s edge.

Or resign.

And so the grown-ups bow to the babes and resign, cower, coddle and apologize, feeding this suckling brat with the mother’s milk of weakness. Rather than placating these already overindulged beasts, it only makes them stronger and encourages them to issue additional, and increasingly absurd, demands.

As long as we allow business as usual in this collegiate shop of horrors, these cultural Marxist change agents will keep manufacturing fake racial incidents, anti-LGBT “hate crimes” and any number of similarly ridiculous, yet equally effective, pretexts for remaining perpetually POed.

Winston Churchill famously observed, “If you’re not a liberal at 20, you have no heart; if you’re not a conservative at 40, you have no brain.”

Until the adults put the children in time-out, this destructive AstroTurf movement, with it’s delicate yet blindly determined little flowers, will continue to blossom.

ANDREW NAPOLITANO: Tyranny of Obama’s drone killings

Thomas Cromwell was the principal behind-the-scenes fixer for much of the reign of King Henry VIII. He engineered the interrogations, convictions and executions of many whom Henry needed out of the way, including his two predecessors as fixer and even the king’s second wife, Queen Anne. When Cromwell’s son, Gregory, who became sickened as he watched… Continue reading “The Tyranny of One Man’s Opinion” »

HOW THE NATIONALIZATION OF THE FAMILY, POVERTY AND POLITICS GO TOGETHER
By Joseph Mattera

Barack Obama State of the Union AddressSince World War II, the Great Society programs of the 1960’s and more, the federal government of the United States has been getting larger at the expense of individual liberty and freedom. The liberals in the federal government offer more and more freebies in exchange for votes. Hence, the more dependent America becomes upon big government, the less likely it becomes that America would ever vote against it. Continue reading “The Real Culprit Impoverishing Americans” »

POTUS Obama speaking to press
The Islamic Ghost That Haunts Obama
By David Rubin

We are all influenced by our backgrounds. With the 2008 election of Barack Obama, who has fundamentally attempted to change America’s orientation in the world, thereby impacting Israel in very negative ways, I began to explore my relationship with the USA as one who was born and raised there.

I fully identify as an Israeli—I married in Israel, my children were all born in Israel, my message is fundamentally a message of Israel’s mission, and my work is totally focused on building Israel’s biblical heartland through the children of Israel. Furthermore, when I travel and speak to groups across the United States, Canada, and elsewhere, I am doing so as an Israeli, even though I may have insights into American realities that most Israeli natives probably don’t possess.

JOSEPH STALIN’S POWER IN AMERICAN POLITICS
By Charles Carrin

Joseph Stalin, Soviet Union Dictator for 2+ Decades

Joseph Stalin (1878-1953), Soviet Union Fascist Dictator for more than two decades.

Let me say this boldly: I am a “conspiracy theorist.” By that I mean, as an 83 year-old American-patriot whose great-great-great-great-grandfather fought in the 1776 Revolution, I believe our national security is being deliberately undermined by an enemy entrenched in Congress and other branches of the Administration. I am not saying all politicians are bad. But I am saying that the Nation is being destroyed by well-financed “plants” who are hostile to democracy and our way of life. America’s libertarian-decline is not by accident; it is by deliberate, calculated intent. I am not alone in this belief. Also know, I am not an anarchist and do not own a gun. My only weapon is the Word–which Scripture and the Constitution encourages me to speak. Continue reading “From the Grave: Joseph Stalin’s Continuing Influence In American Government” »

The Shameful Social Gospel
By T.A. McMahon

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth.” (Romans 1:16)

For various reasons, Christians of different sorts have tinkered with “the gospel of Christ” as though it needed adjustments. Not major alterations, most will tell you, but just some minor tweaking here and there. The changes often begin by one’s declaring that there is no real change involved, simply a shift in emphasis. Yet, no matter what the rationale may be, the end result is being “ashamed of the gospel of Christ.”

To be “ashamed of the gospel” covers a number of attitudes from being totally embarrassed by it to thinking one can improve upon it a bit to make it more acceptable. One example of the former is the recent claim by an Emerging Church author that the teaching regarding Christ’s paying the full penalty for the sins of mankind through His substitutionary death on the Cross is irrelevant and viewed as “a form of cosmic child abuse.” More subtle examples include trying to make the gospel seem less exclusive, and the “softening” of the consequences from which the gospel saves mankind, such as the wrath of God and the Lake of Fire.

Americans Lose While Immigrants Gain
By Phyllis Schlafly

Mexican Immigrant ChildrenAmerican-born workers have had a net loss in jobs since 2000, while all of the job growth since then has gone to immigrants, according to a remarkable new study by the Center for Immigration Studies. This revelation comes as some Republican politicians continue to flirt with amnesty and the disastrous proposal of so-called immigration reform.

Meanwhile, a new Gallup poll proves that the American public is increasingly fed up with the high levels of immigration flooding our job market and our nation. By nearly a 2-1 margin, Americans now want less immigration rather than more: 41 percent would like to see a decrease in immigration, while only 22 percent want to see immigration increase.

IRS Scandal Just Got Much Worse

New IRS Commissioner John Koskinen being sworn in at Congressional Hearing

We are watching the most significant crisis of constitutional order since Watergate, the last time an administration broke the law deliberately and repeatedly. And none of the current cases look more Nixonian than what has been happening at the IRS.

Thirteen months ago, President Obama stood before the American people, acknowledged that the IRS had “improperly screened conservative groups,” and promised to get to the bottom of the matter and to “hold the responsible parties accountable.” Continue reading “IRS Cover-up Worsens Under New Commissioner” »

Unmasking the Imperial Presidency
Phyllis Schlafly

obama-snarling“Imperial presidency” perfectly describes what the Obama administration has become, as it increasingly violates the limits on its power defined by the U.S. Constitution. Criticisms of how President Barack Obama is overstepping his authority are now being heard from all sides of the political spectrum.

A remarkable 33-page report posted on the Internet by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor proves how imperial the Obama administration has become. This easy-to-read report, which can be downloaded by anyone (majorityleader.gov/theimperialpresidency/), details dozens of examples where the current occupant of the White House is exercising powers the Constitution doesn’t give him.

Dick Morris, Political Commentator

Dick Morris, Political pundit and former Clinton advisor

Political commentator and former advisor to President Clinton, Dick Morris, yesterday revealed in an article published on his site and NewsMax that the Democratic Party is with all their political might and muscle pushing a scheme that in essence negates the existing presidential election method via what is referred to as the “Electoral College” mandated in the U.S. Constitution with Amendments. His article follows. By no means have we always agreed with Morris’ expressed views, but with his political views and insights, we have frequently concurred. We believe he is a proven passionate patriot with genuine conservative values that by-and-large align with our own strongly held Biblical conservative values and principles. We publish such articles, as we did leading up to the 2008 Election, because, in short, we believe that the Church, as always, holds the “key” of authority to the outcome of the 2016 election and all political elections, though it failed miserably in its God-ordained duties and responsibilities with respect to the 2008 election. We pray it seizes the opportunity the 2016 Election presents to redeem itself.

DEMOCRATS RIG ELECTORAL COLLEGE

By Dick Morris

A plan, now stealthily making its way through state legislatures with astonishing speed, would junk the Electoral College and award the presidency to the winner of the popular vote.

The plan involves an Interstate Compact where states would commit to select electors pledged to vote for the national popular vote winner regardless of how their own state voted. When enough states pass this law — sufficient to cast the Electoral College’s majority 270 votes — it will take effect. Continue reading “DEMS Plotting to Bypass Electoral College” »

Obama Moves To Weaponize IRS
By Matt Barber

Nazi_IRSIn 2010 millions of American tea-party constitutionalists, to include the GOP’s Christian base, united in a remarkable grass-roots effort to rein in our unbridled federal government and return it to its expressly limited constitutional confines. As a result, an unprecedented number of counter-constitutionalist lawmakers (read: liberal Democrats) were swept from office.

The Obama administration wasn’t going to take this lying down. Whether it was by tacit approval or via direct order remains largely immaterial. The president quickly and unlawfully politicized the Internal Revenue Service, using it as a weapon against his political enemies. In an explosive scandal that continues to grow, the Obama IRS was caught – smoking gun in hand – intentionally targeting conservative and Christian organizations and individuals for harassment, intimidation and, ultimately, for political destruction. Continue reading “Obama Makes IRS A Fascist Weapon” »

Nazi_IRS“The power to tax involves the power to destroy,” the Supreme Court wrote in 1819, shortly after America began. Now in 2013, President Barack Obama is launching a frightening attack on free speech, using one of the most feared agencies in all the federal government: the Internal Revenue Service.

One of the most roundly-condemned aspects of Richard Nixon’s malfeasance in office was his use of the IRS to target his political enemies with audits. If people shudder at Nixon’s abuses with the IRS, what Obama is doing should drive them to convulsions.

Obama seeks to silence dissenting voices with unprecedented new regulations to curtail political speech by nonprofit organizations. These new rules would help silence conservative organizations and Obama’s critics and raise serious First Amendment concerns, as these rules look like the federal provisions struck down as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in its famous Citizens United case. Continue reading “Obama Uses IRS To Eliminate His Enemies” »

War On Religious Freedom
Phyllis Schlafly

Americans who believe in God had better wake up and realize that a well-orchestrated campaign is moving to fundamentally transform the United States into a scrupulously secular nation. If this succeeds, we will no longer enjoy our First Amendment right of “free exercise” of religion but will be forbidden to speak or display any prayers, Bible quotations or other evidences of religion in any public place or event.

The major strike force working to accomplish this consists of the American Civil Liberties Union plus various atheist groups. They are always ready to file lawsuits to get some supremacist judge to restrict religious expression. Continue reading “Secularization of America” »

House Speaker John Boehner & President Barack ObamaWhat in the world is the matter with Boehner Republicans in the U.S. House? Haven’t they had enough of Obama exceeding his presidential authority, disobeying the Constitution by refusing to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed” and issuing executive regulations to “legislate” what Congress refuses to pass, such as the DREAM Act?

We’ve never had a president who so arrogantly grabs and uses such unlawful power. He repeatedly granted waivers or exceptions or delays to groups from laws that gave the president no such authority, such as welfare reform and Obamacare. Continue reading “Congressional Republicans Granting Obama Fast Track to Dictatorship” »

Elmer GantryI am constantly asked, “Chuck, why don’t pastors take a stand and speak out?” I’ve been a pastor most of my adult life. I believe I am qualified to answer that question. Here is the stark reality: the vast majority of pastors today are “success” oriented. Beginning in Bible College or seminary, and continuing throughout a pastor’s ministerial life, the emphasis is success. And that means church growth, larger congregations, bigger buildings, bigger offerings, burgeoning statistics, greater notoriety, denominational praise, invitations to speak at conferences, applause from fellow ministers, not to mention the financial perks and benefits that come with pastoring a “successful” church.

And the way to learn how to build a successful church is to learn from those who have done it. Pastors regularly attend church growth conferences to learn from the “big” church pastors on how it’s done. They purchase books, magazines, newsletters, etc., that are all geared towards telling pastors how to build a successful church. They are constantly being schooled in the latest and greatest “how to” strategies of church growth and success. This usually entails more and more sophisticated programs, music, sound, lighting, atmosphere, classes, seminars, organization, etc. Everything, and I mean everything, is geared toward success as described in the aforementioned paragraph.

Most pastors today are in reality not spiritual shepherds as much as they are corporate CEOs. The same mentality, philosophy, and strategy that drive corporate boardrooms also drive the boardrooms of modern churches — to a tee. Pastors act like CEOs, dress like CEOs, talk like CEOs, manage like CEOs, and think like CEOs. Continue reading “Cowardly PC Pastors and Why They Won’t Take A Stand” »

Many of my articles this year on Spirit Life Magazine have addressed issues relative to President Obama’s agenda for the Islamification and Marxization of America. I make no apologies for that. In fact, I firmly believe that in doing so I am complying with a Biblical mandate consigned to all Christians:  “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them” (Eph. 5:11). I have no qualms or ambivalence about declaring Obama’s agenda as being the “unfruitful deeds of darkness” and that the goal of same being destruction of the constitutional “republic for which”—the flag Americans proudly fly on this the 237th Birthday of this great nation—”stands.” Continue reading “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!” »
