  • Obama Stopped Being a Christian American Upon Election to POTUS

    The shadowy shyster Obama January 20, 2009, was the date; the infamous date when the destroyer of the country called the United States of America began his crusade to kill off as many citizens as possible, and as many symbols and patriotic sayings as he possibly could annihilate. If some took actual lives with his deadly thrusts, the happier he was and the more he enjoyed being the “Messiah” of doom. O1/20/09 was also the date when nearly half of the country abandoned their citizenship and bowed down to this fakir who could not even produce a legitimate birth certificate....

    Perception is everything and Francis, by his official visit, is paying homage to the world’s most infamous champion of partial birth abortion Unless his intention is to radically change or convert President Barack Obama, when Pope Francis descends on America next month, he will in essence be paying open homage to the world’s top champion of partial birth abortion. The pope will meet with Obama on Sept, 23 as part of his first trip to America as the head of the Roman Catholic Church. “According to a White House statement released Thursday, the two leaders will discuss “their shared values”...

    For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men. To crush underfoot all prisoners in the land, to deny a man his rights before the Most High, to deprive a man of justice – would not the Lord see such things? (Lamentations 3:31-36)

    1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. *snip* 2.) Speaking of the military, Trump wants America to have a strong military again. *snip* 3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles (which seem to support my comment in the last point): *snip* 4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.

    In 5,000 years of recorded human history, there has been no nation even resembling the United States. The American model has offered, and continues to offer, a greater chance for dignity, hope and happiness for more people than any other system. As Margaret Thatcher, the British prime minister, put it: “Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy.” Lady Thatcher was right. The philosophy is one of individual liberty, free-market opportunity and belief that it's all a gift from God. America is the best idea the world has ever had, the greatest value system ever devised. What are...

    For the benefit of every American citizen, Presidential candidate Donald Trump is re shaping America’s 2016 political narrative. Suffering dastardly attacks as his reward. The average American political bystander asks why is Donald Trump being attacked with such vigor? The Democrat party and the left fears and attacks 2016 Presidential candidate Donald Trump because the left loses voters every time the general population sees and/or hears Trump speak the truth while displaying his love of American excellence; for instance, if Donald Trump puts truth to power and professes his support for the principles and practices of our founders.

    My guess is most of us would agree that America seems to be in decline, but not for the reasons TIME magazine does. Much of the decline is centered in the politics and policies of the governing party.But TIME is pretty sure that, given the study that they cite, the reason is … capitalism. Here’s the “it was great, but” reason: “We looked at very broad measures, and at individual measures, too,” said co-author Hershey H. Friedman, a business professor at Brooklyn College – City University of New York. The most dangerous sign they saw: rising income and wealth...

Not only is the president’s rationale questionable, but the five co-conspirator nations must be scrutinized for their complicity in endangering their own citizens. As much as leaders of the free world praise the arrival of a global economy and...

And so it is with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his reaction to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s speech last Saturday.

    Supporting America’s enemies abroad and criminals at home The modern-day progressive’s abiding hatred of the United States of America and the eternal principles for which it stands is what animates the Left’s efforts to cripple and destroy this one-of-a-kind nation. It is fair to say that support for America’s enemies abroad and criminals at home are the twin pillars of progressivism today. Since in the real world left-wing social engineering schemes inflict great damage on the human beings selected for experimentation, progressives’ most effective tactic is the smear, which they deploy day in, day out, when they run out of...

    Driving at night--in the Iranian darkness--would be much safer with the headlights on rather than reliance on hope The worldview of President Jimmy Carter—which was resoundingly rejected by President Clinton during the 1992 and 1996 presidential campaigns—has been resuscitated throughout the lengthy negotiations—and the July 2015 agreement - with Iran. Consistent with Carter’s worldview, the negotiation process and the agreement with Iran have highlighted the sacrifice of America’s independent unilateral national security action on the altar of multilateralism (which has rarely been a US home court); the erosion of US confidence in its own (well-established) moral and geo-strategic high-ground and...

    In June, Greece defaulted on a €1.73 billion payment to the International Monetary Fund. In a national referendum shortly thereafter, the Greeks strongly rejected European conditions for receiving yet another bailout. For the first time in the Eurozone’s history, the exit of one of its member countries became a very real possibility. [SNIP] While there are important differences between the U.S. and Greek economies, policy makers and the public should be concerned with the dismal U.S. fiscal outlook. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates in its alternative fiscal scenario that U.S. publicly held debt will grow to 180 percent (exceeding...

Even though the book sold 11,854 copies in its first week, ranking higher than 18 of the 20 books on the latest list, the Times told Cruz’s publisher HarperCollins that his book “didn’t meet that standard” to get recognized. The Times, which previously blocked Dinesh D’Souza’s bestseller “America” from getting on the list, later told Politico that they found evidence that “sales [for Cruz’s book] were limited to strategic bulk purchases.” While the Times has yet to show anyone...

    Greece may be dealing with a debt crisis, but the average U.S. household may have more to lose. The fate of debt-troubled Greece is now only days away from being decided. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras requested bailout funds on Wednesday, promising to submit reform proposals later this week. Either the country will agree to severe austerity measures in exchange for a reprieve from its lenders or will have to exit the eurozone and strike out on its own. Whatever happens, the average American may be worse off than Greece. Here are three ways to look at it: 1) Americans...

But after all these years of celebrating, Americans may soon be mourning its downfall. That's the conclusion of researcher George Barna and historian David Barton in their book U-Turn: Restoring America to the Strength of Its Roots. ***** Faith is losing its foothold in the land. "The proportion of unchurched people has risen from 28 percent to 48 percent in six years," Barna shared. "The fastest growing faith group in America is atheists and agnostics."

    It was the first time in history that a country was based upon something other than place or ethnicity. The Founding Fathers built upon the thoughts and actions resulting from the Reformation and Enlightenment, deliberately crafting a government legitimized by a popular mandate. No longer did someone rule by Divine Right. Religion and the Divine were not possessed by a Chosen aristocracy and the coercive power of government was not used to impose it upon the populace. Political influence and economic success could be attained by other means than birth. For the first time in history, one could use hard...
