This isn't easy to write. It's not fun to say. It's virtually unthinkable to realize and acknowledge.
While the controversy still rises and rages on, around the proposed "Cordoba House" mosque and Muslim cultural center right on the edge of Ground Zero, where the World Trade Center stood till Sept. 11, 2001 there is a world-famous building, dedicated by its current residents to similar purposes, in the middle of Washington, D.C.
We call it the White House.
Some liberal, "change happy" Obamaphiles will instantly call me names for even thinking what I've just said, but I want you and any objective reader to look at the following facts. Then see if you can come to a different conclusion.
We are all, to a great or lesser degree, the inevitable product of how we were raised, what we were taught and experienced as children. Barack Hussein Obama was born to an 18-year-old Caucasian woman and a Kenyan father. Virtually all his early influences, including his biological father and his Indonesian stepfather, his mother and grandparents were socialists, atheists, and/or Muslims.
He went to two schools in Indonesia as a young, impressionable boy. One was Catholic, the other Muslim. In both, he was identified as a Muslim, and in the latter he was of course indoctrinated in the Muslim faith. Other students and several teachers who remember him during that period say he was attentive, studious and better than average in his Muslim studies.

Went to the site and read Pat’s entire piece.
With all due respect to him, I came away with the same impression I have had for awhile now about Obama’s background, which was and is, you can make an equal case for his being a Muslim and for his being a Communist.
(You cannot be both, however.)
Yet, Pat in his headline and most of the text puts his strong emphasis on the Islamic factor. That might fit well with the current mosque bruhaha, but it doesn’t fit well with all of the Communism in his background.
Pat also mentions the contradiction of one claiming Christianity yet inviting so many pro-homosexuals to the WH.
Ok, that’s a fair point, but open pro-homosexuality also does not equate with Islam’s public face (we’ll leave its private face on that issue for another discussion).
My take has always been that Obama is a Marxist and a Muslim sympathizer. In his own mind, that is, because the Muslims think he is Muslim once he is born to a Muslim father, period, end of story.
One can sympathize with Muslims while being a Marxist whereas one cannot truly be both a Marxist and a Muslim.
Marxists are either atheists or if they profess Christianity or Judaism they interpret it under the banner of radical liberation theology, seeing God and/or Jesus and the OT prophets in social justice terms. They cannot, however, fit it with the Islamic religion and its theocratic state.
At one point, Pat asks the question, “Do you see a pattern developing here?” as he outlines Hussein’s personal history.
Honestly, I don’t see a pattern that fits the headline of this piece. Clever though it is, it leaves out the Marxism. And though the text includes that history as well, it never comes to grip with the contradiction.
And there is still that lingering question about the second swearing in ceremony (due to the supposed "mistake" during the actual Inaguration)that took place privately, no cameras or press allowed. Was the Koran in attendance, instead of the Bible??? Why the secret?
If he is a Muslim, then why is he ashamed of it? If he is not, he is at least very partial to Islamic beliefs and a proponent of advancing them in America. That is not his role.
Yes, we have freedom of religion, but a president should not advance one over another. Imagine if JFK made the same kind of proclamations and support of Catholics over Protestants or excluded those of the Jewish faith when he was our first Catholic president.
Anyway, this is an excellent article which points out the conflicts in Obama's claim to be a Christian, along with other research about his background. I found it very easy to understand and informative.
>>Young organizer Barack recounts that he became a Christian there [Trinity United Church of Christ], INFLUENCED BY WRIGHT, and remains one today.<<
hmmm, is that supposed to console all those who wonder about his Christian faith? Wonderful mentor he is, Rev. Wright... /s
Great points Randog. :)
Pat Boone was known for WHITE BUCK shoes
Does the outreach to the muslim world by NASA count?
How about his personal envoy to the muslim world, Rashad Hussain?
Or perhaps his outreach to muslims in India (why isn't this interfering in the affairs of a sovereign country)?
IMO, the Regime that is this Administration with its Kapos and Socialist Czars, is anti-Semitic and blatantly trying to ensure Israel’s destruction all the while protecting and covering for Islamic fanatics. In my opinion and the opinions of others, at no time in our history have we had such enemies within. God help us all.
Thanks so much for that link. Robbins was just about my favorite singer for many decades.
I met him once about a year before he died. Such a sweet gentleman, soft spoken and respectful. IMHO he died way too young.
Right. I forgot about those. Gee, it is so easy to forget all the signs. And that is what Obama counts on...that Americans will forget. Or get preoccupied with another issue. So he just keeps on doing what is on his agenda, that is to lift the religion of Islam above other religious beliefs practiced in America. The question is...why? And how did he become so hateful of the people who gave him and his family so much?

Probably not necessary. I can't help but wonder what all the hub-bub's about. These things just seem to "work themselves out".
In 2001, there was a mosque being built in one of the towns near where I live. Understandably, after 9-11 the construction sort of got put on hold for awhile. Lots of "discussion" and plenty of admonishments about the thing being built "in the spirit of brotherhood" etc., etc. Well, they decided to go ahead and complete the thing. Construction resumed but, hard to believe as it is, it just seems that every time they got a wall up on that thing, that night damned if three walls wouldn't fall down. Get a couple of windows set one day and birds or something would fly through half a dozen other windows over the weekend.
Them poor phakin' muzzies just couldn't catch a break. Gave up after awhile.
I think they finally made a bar out of the place.
Seems to me that they didn't have many problems with that construction.
Probably something like this will happen in N.Y. too. Maybe not. But maybe!
Are you sure you weren’t thinking of
A WHITE TIGHT COAT?
Excellent article, and good pic...
Now I got a guy and his name is Dooley
He's my guy and I love him truly!
He's not good lookin', heaven knows!
But I'm wild about his crazy clothes!
He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces
A polka-dot vest, and man, oh man!
He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces,
And a big panama with a purple hat band!
You make very good points and I think the weight of the evidence is that Obama is a Marxist who knows Islam well enough, and likes its anti-Western aspects well enough, to use it as a temporary ally. Obama is the perfect incarnation of the weird modern anti-Western alliance between marxism and islam.
Please don’t ever post that picture again, I beg of you. Even in satire, that sends shivers down my spine.
