Update: Troubling Changes in Washington
If there was any doubt about how aggressively the new President would move to implement his agenda on social and family issues, it has vanished on the first full day of his Administration. At 12:01 p.m. Tuesday, literally the instant the transition was official, President Obamas official White House website was updated to reflect new policies favoring abortion and opposing the traditional definition of marriage. Our Government Affairs team reports that the scope of expected changes on these issues looks to be sweeping. A few of the more troubling potential changes to be enacted in the early stages of this Administration are as follows:
oops this is a snip.
While John McCain plays Philippe Pétain?
This may be Obama’s first mistake. The majority of Americans lean towards being socially conservative on the issues of abortion, gays and guns. Those who thought they were getting the “center left,” (there is no such thing) are in for a surprise. My wife said there were Obama worshipers where she works that were upset about the abortion thing. These people, for the most part, are liberal, apostate Catholics who are brainwashed by the Omedia and pop culture. They don’t have clue one about what they just got themselves into, but they will wake up.
It is becoming very difficult to maintain the illusion that this gov’t is legitimate.
America is becoming a sad reflection of what it once was. I don’t mean to sound unpatriotic, but with abortion, the corruption in government and business, the celebration of homosexuality and the things our society now seems to value, I am ashamed of us. We can talk about politics, leadership and economics etc. but at the bottom of it all is a deep moral crisis, and until we fix that none of the other things will get any better or even matter.Just the opinion of an old country boy, but we need God real bad.
congratulations Catholics who voted for that mobster....you went directly against church policy let alone morality and ethics....you have blood on your hands...
They will have blood on their hands -- before God.
God will judge in His wrath both the administration, those who voted for it and this nation as a body politic, if he is not already doing so by giving us such a depraved administration.
Evil days and persecution are coming.
One thing I’ll give Obama, he steps in and on day one he pushes for every agenda issue he wants to achieve. That’s what the Democrats do.
We go in there and say, “Woe is me, I can’t do anything. The Democrats don’t agree with me and it just wouldn’t be right.”
No wonder we lose. They go all out, and we act like a snail trying to move after it has dried up.
“Just the opinion of an old country boy, but we need God real bad.”
We need a lot more country boys and a lot fewer urban hedonistic snots, quite frankly. You’re absolutely right about the moral crisis facing this country, and the way we’ve let liberals infiltrate the school system without a conservative movement at all to take it back, well, I can’t say things look too good from this vantage point.
My guess is that Obama is going to concentrate on social issues. With the economy crashing, he can’t rightfully spend much capital/time wrecking our financial system with burdens. In the meantime, I’d expect him to attack every social institution this nation has stood by and fought to protect.
“Sad times for our country! I feel like that French guy in that famous photo when the nazis marched into Paris crying like a baby.”
You might want to check out Spain and what Zapaterro did to their country. It’s dreadfully similar to what our country is going through now. After Azner left, Zapaterro just ripped their families apart there and in very short order.
All this began, of course, from war with Islamists.
Bring. It. On.
The American people elected that dunce because the media hid his politics. Let the American people, who time after time reject horrible ideas like unrestricted and tax-payer funded abortion, hate crimes laws, and other goofy ideas, FINALLY see what Obama has in mind, and watch his popularity drop.
Opinion polls will keep him in line, a la Bill Clinton.
I Timothy 4:1
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils...”
Once the public school system was established, it was inevitable that it would wind up being controlled by *some* special interest or another. In this case the far left.
As Milton Friedman says, just because there is a rationale for government-funding of education that doesn’t mean there is a rationale for government-administration of schools.
The Democrats have become fascists. Conservatives want less government and don’t look to government to solve every problem. Democrats are always drunk with power and can’t wait to push people around with it.
“. . . you have blood on your hands...”
Precisely. Biblcal description of america in general now. And the remainder of us who sit idly by, just by being idle will have that blood splashed on us. Who is it here in these many posts who uses Edmund Burk’s words for a tag line?
Let none of us be idle any longer. Liberty is at stake and God’s judgment is at hand.
Democrats: Kill Baby Kill
One thing Ill give Obama, he steps in and on day one he pushes for every agenda issue he wants to achieve. Thats what the Democrats do.
no, that’s what a dictator does. He needs to move fast and furious so that people won’t have notice it all.
I was listening online, yesterday, to a Traditionalist Mass. The priest, as part of his public announcements, told the congregation “Any of you who voted for Obama must go for confession, if not, you cannot receive communion”. Then, as part of his sermon, he said that, when we lose our faith, God punishes us with evil leaders like BARACK OBAMA!!!
As a Catholic, the numbers of Catholics who voted for him sickens me.
I flat out asked a Catholic I know why so many "pro life" Catholics voted for Obama and Democrats in general. His reply? "I have no idea."
I have no idea either. Our bishops were out, in force, warning their flocks about the evils of voting for pro-choice candidates. I know of one Catholic who was all starry-eyed after going to an Obama rally. It was as if he was mezmerized!
Honestly, I can’t offer an explanation either. I avoided watching and listening to Obama during the campaign season. Just couldn’t stand the sight and sound of him. Heck, maybe they were right about him using hypnosis! LOL!! I didn’t fall under the spell!
Actually, if you view the actions of the American Catholic episcopate and majority of the clergy - the decision was clearly made that Obama’s support for ‘social justice’ was far more important and valuable than his aggressive support for abortion - therefore it was a good thing to vote for Obama.
The lack of any significant pre-election effort by pro-life Catholics and clergy to call attention to the importance of protecting the unborn, coupled with sermons about Catholics should not let their ‘fear’ of ‘change’ and the ‘new’cause them to not have ‘hope’ for the future. (HINT: Do you detect any code words there?)
Glad to hear that...not sure why the congregations aren't listening (and that applies to a number of other faiths, as well). Maybe the language needs to be strengthened...the opposite of 'life' is DEATH, not 'choice'. 'Pro-choice' should be replaced with 'pro-death', because that is exactly what it means.
Perhaps that explains why a majority of NH catholics voted for Obama. As for me; G-d says “choose life”, and I will continue to do so.
I’m with you. And, yes I am afraid that is true about NH - that attitude as well as our pedophile-enabling Bishop McCormack’s close friendship with explains the election of aggressively pro-Abortion ‘Catholic’ ex-Governor, now Senator Shaheen.
Shaheen makes me physically ill...
You nailed it! Exactly.
Ain’t that the truth!
Is this what the American citizens have voted for? Killing the innocent and granting mercy to the guilty.
After years and years of my kids in public schools (my youngest is 21) I can say with the facts on my side, that the bottom line problem is the parents. They have accepted mediocrity. Even in your case above, the parents need to protest, march, write letters, do something to bring back sanity to our schools. Only the parents can make the change but they have chosen to sit around and take it!!!
Evidently Team Obama was in communication with state Officials in many states and they are already implementing Plan Obama, and Swag-a-thon Obama. There’s a LOT of new economy coming down — to the early and heavy bribers goes the swag.
My thoughts were of the same image from years ago. You and I were/are feeling alike...
if you’re apostate haven’t you rejected the church? if you
ve rejected the church can you still be catholic?
As a fellow Arkansan, I’d like to welcome you to Free Republic.
Yep, I hear ya.
I understand your point, but that is a little off target IMO. Our party is too timid. If we want the things in our agenda to come to fruition, we need to adopt the can do attitude the left has. It’s not a sin to push through your goals. It’s a sin if those goals are rotten. It’s a sin if you don’t make hay while the sun shines too. And more often than not, that’s the sin our party is guilty of. On top of that, we don’t even stand in the way of the Democrats getting their way. Our folks right now are too busy backing Obama’s nominations to be bothered with objecting to anything else he’s doing. We can’t even clearly define a guy like Geitner, a man who has been a tax cheat, who now is going to be confirmed as the new Treasury Secretary with Republican votes.
Out folks have really lost their way, and I’m tired of having to put up with their complicity with the Socialists.
“if youre apostate havent you rejected the church? if you’ve rejected the church can you still be catholic?”
Not being a Catholic, I don’t know how they view apostasy, but I think there are stages of apostatizing (abandoning the Church’s beliefs). For instance, the Catholic Church rightly regards abortion as a sin. Catholics who go against the Church are in the act of apostatizing. Wasn’t Kerry denied communion because of his pro abortion politics? Is Kerry still a Catholic?
Anyhow, that’s what I think about it.
There are not enough words to discribe what we just looked at, its the truth and that is what so sad about the two pics looking alike, we know what comes next....
NObama voters voted for color- not competance.
The blacks voted en masse.
The Hippie from the 60’s. 70’s, etc voted for free everything..
The whites who voted for NObama voted out of perceived guilt.
2 of these 3 groups will never get what their error was.
“Legitimate government” is an oxymoron.
