President Obama removes 'Creator' from the preamble of the Declaration of Independence
American Thinker ^ | September 18,2010 | Jason McNew

Posted on 09/18/2010 10:36:18 AM PDT by greyfoxx39

Hobbes, Locke, and Cicero be damned. President Obama single handedly overturns Natural Law. Friday evening President Obama addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute. At around 22:30, he incorporates part of the preamble of The Declaration of Independence, removing "Creator".

"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal..... endowed with certain unalienable rights, life and liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"

After President Obama says "created equal...", there is a long pause during which he scowls and blinks several times. For once, he may actually have opted to not read something that was on the teleprompter. Is looks like he is disgusted and decided it would be better not to read what the preamble actually says.

President Obama, if our Creator is not the purveyor of our human rights, then who is? The government?

One has to wonder if Obama ever READ the Preamble, given what he has done to the Constitution since he stole the oval office.

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. —

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

— Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776 The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

Does his addled brain actually suppose that we are created without a Creator? How would that even be possible?

After President Obama says "created equal...", there is a long pause

When Obama was a state senator, he was responsible for keeping a vote from coming to the floor regarding partial birth abortion.

Pro-life advocates told him that he was responsible for babies dying and after he left the state senate they would be able to pass it because his obstruction would no longer be there. He agreed that that was true.

While he was state senator, he let it be known that the consitution should have been written "all men are born equal" rather than "all men are created equal". You can guess the implications of that regarding abortion. This is likely why he scowled when uttering these words as mentioned in the article. He found himself forced to backtrack on what he had said in Chicago.

“At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? “I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” (Lincoln)

IMHO, that part of the Preamble is what students should be taught to recite - instead of the Pledge of Allegiance.

He omitted it because he believes that government is the one that gives us any rights that we have, not God.

In socialism/communism, Government is an idol (false god).

"God is gonna be upset."

I think He already is. The wrath of God is certainly NOT something I want coming down upon my head..

Hopefully, He will allow all believers to see it happen, then we can gleefully thank the Lord again for His many blessings!

One would have to wonder by now if Zer0 is deliberately pushing "we the People" into doing something other than having mass rallies, waving peaceful signs, and doing "protests".

If so, the old adage would apply:

You better be careful what you ask for, you just may get it.

If he is counting on the army to quell an rising, it just may not happen.....I remember well the line of old commies in the former USSR standing in front of the state house in Moscow with the Red Army tanks coming up the hill to take Yeltsen into custody and quell the uprising...

...and then they stopped.

It was clear that they were not going to support the commies, and the rest is history.....

Being "commander in chief" of the military is not necessarily the same as "being in control" of the military....

>God is going to be upset<

Yes! This is outrageous! I wrote on anther thread tody the following.

The article on The Ruling Class made me think of how my Boston Terrier is always at my heels, and does not go through a doorway before e! I am Alpha Dog to my Boston Terrier!
The Ruling Class considers themselves as “Alpha Dog”, and the country as “The Pack”!
The Ruling Class is definitely in Satan denial! After all, if they were FEDucated in the last 60 years, they absorbed “Values Clarification”! So dumbed down by that FEDucation, they do not consider any deferential between good and evil, so the two are interchangeable according top one’s purpose! Thus these people consider themselves the Ruling Class, rather than in all reality they are nothing but Satan’s pawns!
Yes, Virginia, there is a God! The fear of God is ESSENTIAL in regaining our God given rights as declared in our divinely inspired early documents! The sooner we fear Him, the more successful our battle with Satan will become!

Surely there are "Ten Just Men" still out there somewhere in America. So why Obama? And why does he rise and rise as his mouth smiles and smiles, exuding sincerity as he speaks lies and death? Link.
