This is one of the closing paragraphs of President Obama's speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on September 15, 2010. Caught a clip of this on the radio and I was amazed when he left out "by their Creator" when quoting from the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence.

Here it is in the official White House transcript and you can also see it on YouTube

I'm surprised this has not created a stir - perhaps lost in the election results new the last few nights.

For reference, here is the actual first sentence of the Preamble:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

We are truly living in an Orwellian society, where the President can just change documented history. If I did this, as a historian and author, I’d have no credibility. I guess that’s why Obama’s credibility is where it is.

From where do those ‘unalienable Rights’ come from. I bet the black poser (bloser) thinks they are from HIM, Meaning 0.

Not only what you pointed out but also this sentence is very telling -

"But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together -- what made us all Americans -- was not a matter of blood,it wasn’t a matter of birth.

He keeps exposing his roots!

Exactly the sort of cover the MSM provides for The One - post-modern elites are embarrassed that the Founding Fathers used the sort of religious talk they now associate with bitter clingers. In the minds of “progressives” like Obama, in this day and age we are only endowed with whatever rights the federal government chooses to give us. That’s “progress” in the Wilsonian mindset that has grown like some sort of malign kudzu over time.

Most of us know the first few words of the Bible is:
“In the beginning God.....”Genesis 1:1a)

But we can also read: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)

And: “God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken to us by His Son,......” (Hebrew 1:1-2a)

Yes, to quote the beginning of out Preamble is sooooooooo important!!!!!!!!!!!!

He didn’t say “Creator” because it didn’t appear on the TelePrompTer. Simple as that.

Probably, but that's not the point. Transcrips and articles should point to their source, not to scribd. Scribd has been used for major, embarrassing hoaxes which then ends up on FR making us look like boobs.

Obama spelled as his actions would require it be—Hitler.For
years Public school educators attempted lead us to believe
Hitler was a Christian. Like Obama does. But Hitler only wanted to use the church to advance his Reich. Much as Obama
wants to use the American church.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed -- by their Creator! -- with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

One can only conclude that Obama and his staff are profoundly ignorant of the Preamble to the Declaration, or that the devious and Godless demon deliberately left out the CREATOR (and the concomitant "NATURAL" law) that underpins the concept of "unalienable" rights, in the aforementioned preamble!

In short, with out mention of the "creator" there is no rational justification for the "endowed" unalienable rights... rights that are inborn and independent of man made laws.

It looks like he was reading from the teleprompter as usual, but when it came to this part, he paused and considered whether he should continue verbatim or to say it his way. I believe the phrase “endowed by our Creator” was on that teleprompter, and he made a deliberate decision to omit it.

Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. To British and French, to Dutch and Spanish, to Mexican -- (applause) -- to countless Indian tribes.

America was an idea in the 1500s and the United States of America an idea in the 1700s. Mexico is only now celebrating its 200th anniversary. Obama's history timeline for the New World is off by about 200 years.

Unbelievable. This is important. This is not just ignorance, or a mis-quote. To leave out the phrase ‘BY THEIR CREATOR’ (and the very meaning of “NATURAL” law) underpins the very concept of ‘inalienable” rights guaranteed to us by that declaration. These ‘natural’ laws are given to us through our Creator, and not by man.

These points are all expounded further within the Federalist Papers. When ‘by their Creator’ is left out there is no longer any rational (or for that matter legal) justification for the endowed “unalienable” rights. Rights that are inborn and independent of any man made laws. Once natural law is removed all of us become subjects of the government and our rights ‘inalienable’ or otherwise are now no longer determined by ‘natural’ law but by man made laws rather than God.

Folks, this is how freedom dies. The next step is tyranny.

I noticed that too.

“to Mexican — (applause) — to countless Indian tribes”

Mexicans at that time were just one of the “countless Indian tribes”, so why is he singling them out for special recognition? If I was a Navajo I’d be miffed!

Thanks. Honestly this just jolted me. If I weren’t already awake I would be now!

IMO he pretty much declared himself a dictator in this speech (not that very many dolts in this country will grasp the significance of this). He took away our ‘natural’ rights to liberty given to us by God by omitting that phrase. In doing so he has tonight stripped us of our ‘natural’ rights!

If this is not the beginnings of a real hard tyranny I don’t know what else would be short of gulags and prison camps. And now that he has re-written the Declaration and removed our God given ‘natural’ rights - they may be next!
