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” »

UN Security Council meeting room

By Michael Snyder

Because Barack Obama has cursed Israel at the United Nations, America is now under a curse.

Friday’s stunning betrayal of Israel at the U.N. Security Council is making headlines all over the planet, but the truth is that what Obama has just done is far more serious than most people would dare to imagine. Over the past several decades, whenever the U.S. government has taken a major step toward the division of the land of Israel, it has resulted in a major disaster hitting the United States. This keeps happening over and over again, and yet our leaders never seem to learn. And despite the fact that President-elect Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and prominent members of both parties in Congress strongly urged Obama to veto Security Council resolution 2334, he went ahead and let it pass anyway.

Because the United States has veto power on the U.N. Security Council, nothing can get passed without our support. And it has been the policy of the U.S. government for decades to veto all anti-Israel resolutions that come before the Security Council.

But this time around, it appears that the Obama administration was working very hard behind the scenes to get this resolution pushed through the Security Council before the end of Obama’s term. At least that is what Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is claiming:

“From the information that we have, we have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “This is, of course, in complete contradiction of the traditional American policy that was committed to not trying to dictate terms for a permanent agreement, like any issue related to them in the Security Council, and, of course, the explicit commitment of President Obama himself, in 2011, to refrain from such steps.”

I am sure that there will be a tremendous amount of debate about to what extent the U.S. was involved in creating and drafting this resolution, but there is one thing that is exceedingly clear.

The ultimate decision as to whether or not this resolution would be adopted was in the hands of one man. Barack Obama knew very well that he had this power, and in the end, he ultimately decided to betray Israel.

And now that our government has cursed Israel at the U.N., our entire nation will be cursed as a result.

In the Scriptures, we are repeatedly told that God will bless those that bless Israel and will curse those that curse Israel. When Barack Obama blocked a similar resolution that France wanted to submit for a vote in September 2015, it resulted in America being blessed, and we definitely have been blessed over the past 16 months.

But now that Barack Obama has reversed course and has betrayed Israel, we will most assuredly be cursed. In the days ahead, we will see how this plays out, and perhaps we can get some hints about what may happen by reviewing recent history.

There have literally been dozens of instances in recent decades when the U.S. has been hit by some sort of immediate disaster when it has made a move toward the dividing of the land of Israel. The following are 10 of the most prominent examples that stand out to me:

1. The last time the U.S. government refused to veto an anti-Israel resolution at the U.N. Security Council was in 1979. On March 22, 1979, the Carter administration chose not to veto U.N. Resolution 446. Four days after that on March 26, the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty was signed in Washington. As a result of that treaty, Israel gave up a tremendous amount of territory. Two days later, on March 28, the worst nuclear power plant disaster in U.S. history made headlines all over the globe. The following comes from Wikipedia:

The Three Mile Island accident was a partial nuclear meltdown that occurred on March 28, 1979, in reactor number 2 of Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station (TMI-2) in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, United States. It was the most significant accident in U.S. commercial nuclear power plant history.[2] The incident was rated a five on the seven-point International Nuclear Event Scale: Accident With Wider Consequences.[3][4]

2. On Oct. 30, 1991, President George H. W. Bush opened the Madrid Peace Conference, which brought Israelis and Palestinians together to negotiate for the very first time. In his opening speech, Bush told Israel that “territorial compromise is essential for peace.” At the exact same time, “the Perfect Storm” was brewing in the north Atlantic. This legendary storm traveled 1,000 miles the wrong direction and sent 35 foot waves slamming directly into President Bush’s home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

3. On Aug. 23, 1992, the Madrid Peace Conference moved to Washington, D.C., and the very next day, Hurricane Andrew made landfall in Florida, causing $30 billion in damage. It was the worst natural disaster up to that time in U.S. history.

4. On Jan. 16, 1994, President Clinton met with President Assad of Syria to discuss the possibility of Israel giving up the Golan Heights. Within 24 hours, the devastating Northridge earthquake hit southern California. It was the second worst natural disaster up to that time in U.S. history.

5. On Jan. 21, 1998, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived at the White House but received a very cold reception. In fact, President Clinton and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright actually refused to have lunch with him. That exact same day, the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, sending the Clinton presidency into a tailspin from which it would never recover.

6. On Sept. 28, 1998, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was working on finalizing a plan which would have had Israel give up approximately 13 percent of Judea and Samaria. On that precise day, Hurricane George slammed into the Gulf Coast with wind gusts of up to 175 miles an hour.

7. On May 3, 1999, Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was supposed to hold a press conference to declare the creation of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital. On that precise day, the most powerful tornadoes ever recorded in the U.S. ripped through Oklahoma and Kansas. At one point, one of the tornadoes actually had a recorded wind speed of 316 miles an hour.

8. On April 30, 2003, “the Road Map to Peace” that had been developed by the so-called “Quartet” was presented to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon by U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer. Over the next seven days, the U.S. was hit by a staggering 412 tornadoes. It was the largest tornado cluster ever recorded up to that time.

9. In 2005, President George W. Bush (the son of George H.W. Bush) convinced Israel that it was necessary to remove all of the Jewish settlers out of Gaza and turn it over entirely to the Palestinians. According to the New York Times, the very last of the settlers were evacuated on Aug. 23, 2005. On that precise day, a storm that would be given the name “Katrina” started forming over the Bahamas. The city of New Orleans still has not fully recovered from the damage that storm caused, and it ranked as the costliest natural disaster in all of U.S. history up to that time.

10. On May 19, 2011, Barack Obama told Israel that there must be a return to the pre-1967 borders. Three days later on May 22, a half-mile-wide EF-5 multiple-vortex tornado ripped through Joplin, Missouri. According to Wikipedia, it was “the costliest single tornado in U.S. history.”

The U.N. Security Council resolution that was passed on Friday is the biggest betrayal of Israel in modern history. As I explained in my last article, I believe that America’s reprieve is now over, and all hell is about to break loose in this country.

When Barack Obama blocked the U.N. Security Council from dividing the land of Israel in September 2015, according to the Word of God, we should have been blessed as a nation as a result, and we were blessed.

But now Barack Obama has cursed Israel by stabbing them in the back at the United Nations, and according to the Word of God, we should be cursed as a nation as a result.

And as surely as I am writing this article, we will be cursed.###

Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; And I will make you a great NATION*, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” So Abram went forth as the LORD had spoken to him; and Lot went with him. Now Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his nephew, and all their possessions which they had accumulated, and the persons which they had acquired in Haran, and they set out for the land of Canaan; thus they came to the land of Canaan. Abram passed through the land as far as the site of Shechem, to the oak of Moreh. Now the Canaanite was then in the land. The LORD appeared to Abram and said, “To your descendants I will give this land.” So he built an altar there to the LORD who had appeared to him. (Gen. 12:1-7; emphasis added)

[* Editor’s Note: God’s promise to Abraham was to make his descendants a NATION, not just a great people. The miraculous rebirth of the NATION of Israel in 1948 was God making good on that promise! He will never forsake Israel, or allow it to be obliterated, despite being the smallest nation on earth, located at the geographical center of the earth. Jesus will return to the very spot God made this promise to Abraham, and physically stand on the Mount of Olives, where He delivered several of His most important “sermons.”

Canaan: So called from Canaan the son of Ham, lies between the Mediterranean sea on the west, the wilderness of Paran, Idumea, and Egypt on the south, the mountains of Arabia on the east, and the mountains of Lebanon and Phoenicia on the north. Its length, from Dan to Beersheba, is about 200 miles, and its breadth, from the Mediterranean sea to its eastern borders, about 90.]

The LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him, “Now lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward; for all the land which you see, I will give it to you and to your descendants FOREVER. “I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth, so that if anyone can number the dust of the earth, then your descendants can also be numbered. “Arise, walk about the land through its length and breadth; for I will give it to you.” Then Abram moved his tent and came and dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and there he built an altar to the LORD. (Gen. 13:14-18; emphasis added)

The covenant which He made with Abraham, And His oath to Isaac. Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, To ISRAEL as an EVERLASTING covenant, Saying, “To you I will give the land of Canaan As the portion of your inheritance,” When they were only a few men in number, Very few, and strangers in it. And they wandered about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people. He permitted no man to oppress them, And He reproved kings for their sakes: “Do not touch My anointed ones, And do My prophets no harm.” (Psa. 105:9-15; emphasis added)

“You shall not move your neighbor’s boundary mark, which the ancestors have set, in your inheritance which you will inherit in the land that the LORD your God gives you to possess. (Deu. 19:14)

AMERICA’S SPIRITUAL FOUNDING FATHER

By Eddie L. Hyatt

Teorge Whitefield

He became the most recognizable and talked about figure in Colonial America. From Georgia to Maine, thousands filled churches and gathered in open fields to hear him preach. Loved by the masses, he was detested by many of the clergy who refused him their pulpits. Undaunted, he preached in the open fields to massive crowds of all sects and denominations.

At a time when the population of Boston was estimated at twenty thousand, he preached to an estimated crowd of 25,000 on the Boston Common. Great revival seemed to erupt everywhere he went. Denominational walls were broken down and for the first time the scattered American colonists began to see themselves as a single people with one Divine destiny. Through his incessant labors and his love for America, George Whitefield (1713-1770) helped prepare the way for the formation of the United States of America.

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.

“Feed me, Seymour!”###

Why on earth is there a problem with what Ben Carson said about the potential of a muslim POTUS?

We’ve had a muslim POTUS for seven years. This video (among many others) shows conclusively that Barack Hussein Obama IS A MUSLIM!

Moreover, he is intent on the Islamification of America!

Time to take the blinders off, America! It’s all true!

It’s time to get your head out of the clouds, American believers, and start praying in earnest and in truth to reverse this horrible situation while there’s still time!

It matters not HOW it happens, but it MUST HAPPEN!

And, then we need to pray earnestly that the American Church will not be so naive and, frankly, stupid in the 2016 presidential election.

The future of America is definitely and undeniably at stake!

Watch and weep! Then wipe the tears and begin to pray, for America and for wisdom by the American people!

[Editor’s Note: Janet Mefferd is a popular syndicated radio talk show host with nearly three decades of journalism and broadcasting experience. She wrote and published this article the day of the US Supreme Court’s ruling, June 26, 2015, essentially legalizing gay marriage.]

THERE’S ONLY ONE JUDGE WHO MATTERS (AND IT’S NOT KENNEDY)
By Janet Mefferd

Today, five Supreme Court justices forced upon the United States a fictitious “right” to state-sanctioned homosexuality in a form to be referred to as “marriage.” From this day on, we can add Obergefell v. Hodges next to Roe v. Wade on the list of the most outrageously unconstitutional SCOTUS decisions ever rendered.

It doesn’t matter that 20 years ago, creating such a “right” was both morally and legally unthinkable, across the globe, on all sides of the political aisle.

It doesn’t matter that the U.S. Constitution doesn’t even address the issue of marriage. It doesn’t matter that millions and millions of Americans legally went to the polls to uphold real marriage. It doesn’t matter that the polls or research on the subject of so-called “homosexual marriage” are deliberately skewed or even based on faked data, as in the recent case of a study retracted from the academic journal Science.

It also doesn’t matter that the Founders would have been aghast at today’s decision. And it doesn’t matter that two of the five justices who upended marriage today unapologetically officiated at so-called “homosexual weddings” and refused to show ethical responsibility by recusing themselves from this case altogether.

That’s because today isn’t about the rule of law, the Constitution, what is morally right or ethical or even what is ultimately real. When it comes down to it, it’s about the revolution — the sexual revolution that has reached its zenith at the hands of five unelected justices.

Years ago, I heard former U.S. Rep. Bob Dornan speak at a pro-life rally, and I’ve never forgotten what he said (and I paraphrase from memory):

“For years, those of us on the side of life have been treating this abortion issue as if it were a debate. ‘Hey, we’re the ones with all the facts on our side!’ we say. ‘Babies are human beings. They’re alive. It’s murder to kill a human being. How can America not see this? Why aren’t we winning?’ And yet we’ve forgotten the most important thing. If this were a debate, we’d have won it years ago, because we do have all the truth, all the facts and all the science on our side. What we need to understand is that while we were trying to debate the pro-abortion activists, they were at war.”

You’ve seen it, haven’t you? When the Big Gay Bulldozer mows down Brendan Eich, Barronelle Stutzman, the Benham brothers, the Kleins or Craig James, there are no tears shed for these people who have lost their livelihoods and/or reputations. No one worries about the harassment or even death threats that are hurled at these people behind the scenes. It doesn’t matter how they were treated or what their First Amendment rights are. It’s all about the Revolution, man.

When the Human Rights Campaign puts enormous pressure on businesses to support “full LGBT equality” and ranks them through its “Corporate Equality Index,” with companies actually losing points for having any “anti-LGBT blemishes” on recent records, there’s no debate. You’re either with HRC, or you’re targeted homophobes. Nor did the far-Left Southern Poverty Law Center feel the need to retract its “Hate Map,” which identifies and smears Christian organizations, merely because it inspired a homosexual domestic terrorist to storm the Family Research Council with the intent to commit mass murder. It’s all about the Revolution, man.

There is no “gay gene.” It doesn’t matter. The CDC states that men who have sex with men account for 59 percent of those who have HIV and comprise 66 percent of those who contract HIV each year. It doesn’t matter. The Bible is clear that homosexuality is sinful. It doesn’t matter, homophobe. The Revolution is the thing!

Saul Alinsky’s eighth Rule for Radicals was: “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” As he put it, “Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.” This is what Big Gay has done and done effectively. Its activists have applied intense, constant pressure on every side, through every medium, to achieve their goals, and nobody has been immune to that pressure – especially not judges or politicians. And we must note that among secularists, enormous and constant social pressure — aided and abetted by means of high-pressure propaganda and duplicitous Newspeak – can be very hard to resist if you have no true north in the inerrant Word of God. In fact, I believe in the coming days, it very well may be that only those who are grounded in the Word of God will maintain the true north on marriage and sexuality.

Big Gay knows this. Christians and their Bibles are a problem. This is why one of the next big pushes will be to try to get Christians to accept a twisted and false view of Scripture that upends texts like Matthew 19, Romans 1, Genesis 19 and 1 Corinthians 6.

Expect homosexual activists like Matthew Vines and other self-identified “gay Christians” like him to try to come in and influence your church or denomination, people who will twist the Scriptures to try to deceive you. There will be pressure on you to “show the love of Jesus” and “stop hate-filled discrimination,” but it’s just Alinsky Rule 8. Do not let them deceive you. God speaks clearly in His Word on the homosexuality and marriage issues, and we must stay the course. Christian, you can read your Bible for yourself. You already know what it says. And if you don’t, you’d better get on that. Because if you are a Christian, you are required to be on the alert against the one who would whisper in your ear, “Did God really say …?”

Yes, this is war. But then, we sometimes forget that the Christian is always at war. Yet our war is not against Big Gay or the Supreme Court or the media. Our true enemy, as we know, isn’t even human. Our weapons are not physical or carnal. Ultimately, this war we’re in is spiritual. As 2 Corinthians 10:4 puts it: “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” And what are these weapons? The breastplate of righteousness. The shield of faith, with which we can “extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” The helmet of salvation. And the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

In the evil day, we are to put on this whole armor of God and be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Why? So we can take our “stand against the devil’s schemes.” It’s true that today’s Supreme Court decision is a travesty, a total violation of moral and natural law, the highest peak thus far in the current revolution. And so it’s imperative that we continue to make the case, on the civil and political and moral levels, for true marriage and for our First Amendment freedoms. Like we’ve been doing for four decades against Roe v. Wade, we must do whatever we can, on the human level, to reverse this ruling. But the bigger picture is the spiritual war and the duty we now have to stand. “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” (Eph. 6:13)

There are all kinds of repercussions coming down the pike after today’s decision. Expect polygamy to become legal at some point; there’s no keeping it at bay anymore. But it’s also very likely that life will become much more difficult for Christians, too. Our tax exemptions may be going away. Our schools, universities, Bible colleges and seminaries will feel the pressure. Our churches will come under fire. Some of us could lose our businesses. There will be hatred and insults, and we will feel temptations all around us to give in, to compromise, to give up and to downplay the Word of God. But we must not do that. We cannot do that, any more than the apostles could give in and compromise the gospel to get along with Rome.

We know we must stand because there is another Judge, a higher Judge who is also the Lawgiver and the one who kept the Law perfectly on our behalf as Savior. The Lord Jesus Christ is no fallen ideologue who should have recused Himself before rendering a lawless judgment. No, His moral law is holy, perfect, right and eternal, and His judgments are always perfect. And on that final day, He will judge the world in righteousness: You, me, your neighbor and yes, those Supreme Court justices, too.

In light of the judgment to come, we must not only stand our ground, but we must proclaim to those around us that that day is coming! They need to hear that God is commanding everyone to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ while there is still time. “For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.” (Acts 17:31) This is what the apostles preached. This is what Christians throughout history have preached. And this is what we must preach, too.

The Revolution will not last forever, but the Kingdom of God will. No matter how disheartened we may be today, that is always good news.###

Whites Held to Higher Standards Than Blacks

By Mychal Massie

Mychal Massie of the Daily Rant ~ mychal-massie.com

Mychal Massie, Social-Political Commentator

That neo-Leninist liberals hold white Americans to a different standard than they hold blacks is bad enough, but they hold blacks to a lower standard that is incompatible on any quantifiable level of propriety and civility.

Whites are expected to be respectful, civil and conscious of what they say – and, based on what is being taught in public schools, conscious even of what they think. Whites must be ever respectful of the feelings of other people, specifically blacks.

But blacks are not held to said expectations of social grace and relational benevolence. Blacks are not only given a pass for being rude and offensive, they are given a pass for going through life with a chip on their shoulders and behaving on levels of commonality that insure their being relegated to a future of lowered expectations and even lower meritocratic personal achievement.

The disgraceful prejudice of lowered expectations based on skin color is nowhere more evident than with the Obamas. It is even more heinous that everyone but the majority of blacks sees it and understands this class bigotry.

First Lady Michelle Obama on Jimmy Fallon Show

First Lady Michelle Obama on Jimmy Fallon Show

No first lady in history has behaved as this one has – and it is a certainty that no other first lady would have even entertained the idea of behaving in the uncouth ways she has. The late Jackie Kennedy, Rosalind Carter, or Laura Bush would never have been caught rolling around on the floor of a late-night television stage. They are justifiably held to a higher standard than that, but the Obama woman is expected to behave commonly and discourteously. She is expected to be angry and contumacious because, after all, she is a descendant of slaves. She has been mistreated by evil whites her entire life – at least, that is, if we are to believe her narrative.

It is the same with Obama. He has been soundly criticized at every turn and justifiably so. George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter were viciously criticized for their policies. But is there anyone who would argue that they would have been permitted to finish their terms if they had been involved in an illegal gun-running operation that led to the murders of innocent Americans and hundreds of innocent Mexicans? Would any American president before Obama have been permitted to knowingly and openly lie about his abominable health-care bill with impunity?

The cultural Marxists in our public school systems, colleges, the media and politics promote an “Afri-centric” form of behavior that is self-limiting and self-defeating. Whites are expected to comport themselves decently.

Proper speech and self-decency have different meanings if you are black than they do if you are not. Those like Jehmu Greene, Al Sharpton and Eric Holder are rewarded for their bitterness and antipathy. Yet there is absolutely no question but that there would be hell to pay if any white person or group said the things in public that they do – the fact that whites are accused of thinking such things notwithstanding.

Blacks are destroying the neighborhoods in which they live, but when law enforcement officers have deadly encounters with these hoodlums and thugs, it is the white officers who are held to the higher standards.

Police departments and local governments are taken to task and called racist because they call for standards of public dress that any person with self-pride and dignity would never need to be reminded about.

Whether it is grammar, public/personal behavior, social skills, ad nauseum, blacks are held to lower standards, and tragically blacks accept same as their right.

We see it with race-based affirmative action. Blacks are given jobs in municipal departments that they qualify for only because the standards are lowered to the point of rendering the exams of no value. Whites are expected to perform at a higher standard of intellectual ability.

Blacks have been inculcated with the vile heterodoxy of “being owed” something juxtaposed to having to “earn” something. They are conditioned to see nothing wrong with a mentality that not only suggests, but also applauds their ability to gain access based on lowered expectations rather than meritocracy.

It is a fact that the behavior of many blacks is the primary causal factor for how they are viewed by others, but we are expected to overlook their behavior and blame racism for how they are viewed.

If blacks were held to the same standard of expectation as others, we would see an increase in the number of blacks accomplishing positive outcomes, and fewer of them spending decades behind bars for copying gangsters and amoral behavior.###

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” »

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.

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!” »

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

I’m old enough to remember a time when many promulgators of the so-called “Social Gospel” eschewed and took umbrage at the term. Over the last half a century, though, that has totally reversed. Now, proponents of the thoroughly false “gospel” embrace and rally around the assignation.

The time has come, I believe, to “speak the truth in love” but nonetheless straightforwardly about this heinously deceptive and insidious false gospel. Continue reading “The Fallacy and Ineffectiveness of the “Social Gospel”” »

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, The people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance” (Psa. 33:12).

“If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?” (Psa. 11:3)

“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” –John Adams, 2nd US President

In a recent article, concerning the second Scripture verse above, I wrote that they,

like Adams’ statement, contains a latent clue for any group of marauders possessing malevolent and self-aggrandizing intents how to set about subverting a free society for the purposes of vanquishing it—namely, dismantle and decimate its ideological and spiritual substructure.

America’s morality always has been and remains the unseen bedrock of its unrivaled, enduring success. But, that success always has had and will have its villainous enemies who are intent on obliterating it.

I followed that by a poignant quote from Karl Marx, “who today is revered by the multitudinous global disciples of his radical agenda for world-hegemony as ‘The Father of Communism,'” and whose “anti-God religion of narcissism-centric humanism (now) permeates every segment of the existing societies of the world”:

“My object in life is to dethrone God by deifying man.” –Karl Heinrich Marx, Father of Communism

I also wrote:

Thus, as Marx further prescribed in the writings comprising The Communist Manifesto…the only way the agenda of communism can succeed in any nation is that God and all religions ascribing belief in God be entirely eradicated from the collective psyche of its citizenry and thus every facet of the society of the targeted nation. Indeed, that whole long-term, systematic process is the primary critical element of communism–”socialization.” Continue reading “America, You Were Warned 50 Years Ago!” »

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.
