  • Mr. Obama’s Brand of “Christianity”

    For twenty years, Mr. Obama drank from a particular brand of religion—Liberal Christianity. To be sure, most Bible-believing Christians would not consider that brand to be Christianity at all. But liberal Christians would consider their brand to actually be the enlightened one. Over time, Liberal Christianity has developed a humanistic understanding of what the Christian faith is about. They claim that Christians who still believe the Bible is God’s perfect self-revelation are stuck back in the 1st century. Society has evolved, they say. And because society has evolved, God must be evolving also. After all, why else would He allow...

    White House advisor foolishly compares leftist cult to evil Republicans. In 1976, The People's Temple's renowned socialist, social justice advocate, and King of Kool-Aid, the Rev. Jim Jones, moved his communist flock from the racist confines of the Fascist States of America (San Francisco apparently being too far right wing for his liking) to the glorious utopia known as Guyana. Within two years, The People's Temple (no connection to The People's Cube) had over 900 people's in Guyana living out the socialist dream of shared sacrifice and equal distribution of misery. But, like what always happens in a "People's" society,...

    An international incident was touched off yesterday in Johannesburg, South Africa, when a goodwill appearance by President Obama was interrupted by an impromptu funeral. Mr. Obama was generously posing for souvenir pictures of himself with fawning admirers at the FNB Stadium (Soccer City), when security people rolled in Nelson Mandela's casket and demanded to have a memorial service. When questioned as to why they were disrupting Mr. Obama's appearance, the security men offered no explanation aside from "we reserved the stadium last week for this." "This kind of thing is a constant problem for Mr. Obama" said one of his...

    It’s time to spit in the face of political correctness and state the unvarnished and absolute truth about Barack Hussein Obama: He is evil. That’s right: EVIL! The self-anointed political Messiah from Chicago has gone out of his way to strongly advocate for behaviors and practices that violently contradict our Judeo-Christian heritage. In fact, when it comes to certain behaviors and practices such as homosexuality and abortion – Obama not only ardently supports them – but he also believes that our youth should be taught how “natural”, “normal” and “viable” they are.

    And almost a third of respondents still say they’re unfamiliar with ObamaCare, even as we approach T-minus one month for the individual exchanges.  Among those familiar with the Affordable Care Act, though, a majority disapproves, according to Gallup’s latest poll: Less than two months before the health insurance exchanges open nationwide, more Americans disapprove (49%) than approve (41%) of the Affordable Care Act. An additional 11% have no opinion. As this landmark legislation enters the next phase in its implementation process, it remains divisive. With the exception of a bounce likely caused by President Barack Obama’s re-election in November 2012,...

    The hubbub generated by unhinged leftists, especially black unhinged leftists, over the Missouri rodeo clown's act with the Obama mask is breathtakingly idiotic. I only wish that I were able to contact that gentleman to applaud him for giving his audience something about which to cheer. From my childhood memory of circus clowns, that is what clowns do. Nothing was more disgusting about this fiasco than the fact (if I heard correctly) that the clown was booted out of his job, and Missourians did not rise up to demand that he not be let go. This fact, coupled with the...

    Finally, a prominent nation is taking on the homosexual agenda and rejecting it outright. A number of African nations have done the same, but third-world countries are not newsworthy to mainstream media. Although recently, the President of Senegal (West Africa), Mackey Sall, was reported as rebuffing Barack Obama's haughty insistence that Senegalese embrace homosexuality. The irony is stunning that a Communist nation would understand that preserving the value of men and women marrying and producing children makes for demographic survival, while many American Christian leaders cower in the shadows, in fear of activist homosexuals and their leftist supporters. For any...

I even wrote a book about it in 1987.[1] Never before Barack Obama’s presidency, however, has a president pushed so assiduously to advance all ten points in Marx’s plan. Is it just a coincidence that Obama’s mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a card-carrying Communist...

    There's a "war on women" being waged by those knuckle-dragging Republicans. How do you know? Because President Obama has told you so, and because his media enablers parrot the line at every opportunity. What does the battlefield look like? A first reconnaissance might suggest that men, not women, are under assault and in full-scale retreat. For example, women now earn almost 60 percent of college degrees, and a majority of master's and doctoral degrees. Education is the best predictor of future earnings in our information economy. Women now hold 51 percent of white-collar management and professional jobs. Traditional male sectors...

    Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929, marked the beginning of the Great Depression, but for Barack Obama, last Friday was Black Friday because the U.S. Department of Labor announced that only 69,000 jobs were added in May, well below expectations that it might reach 150,000. The official unemployment rate ticked up to 8.2 percent, but it is actually far closer to 15 percent. The news means that Obama's hope of being reelected ranges between slim to none. Beyond the current numbers, on Friday CNS News reported that 766,000 more women are unemployed than when he took office in 2009.

    WASHINGTON, May 31, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Obama opposes a House measure slated for a vote Thursday to ban the practice of abortion based on the unborn child’s gender. ABC’s Jake Tapper reported Wednesday that the statement came after White House spokesman Jay Carney had declined to comment on the administration’s view of the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA). White House deputy press secretary Jamie Smith later in the evening said in a statement: “The Administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms, but the end result of this legislation would be to subject doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to...

    CHICAGO—The Obama re-election campaign has quietly opened a counteroffensive against Republican-backed changes to election laws that Democrats say will suppress votes for their candidates and limit their get-out-the-vote drives. The effort, led by former White House counsel Robert Bauer, prompted the suspension of an Ohio law limiting early voting. Campaign officials produced educational materials to counter a Wisconsin law that requires voters to produce photo I.D.s—but disallows those used by Wisconsin colleges. By this spring, the Obama re-election campaign will mount what Mr. Bauer called an unprecedented "voter protection" effort, fielding thousands of volunteers in battleground states to help navigate...

    On Monday, during a fundraiser in California, President Obama declared that Europe’s debt problems and their inability to solve them was “scaring the world.” He went on to explain that Europeans “have not fully healed from the crisis back in 2007 and never fully dealt with the challenges that their banking system faced” and that “they’re trying to take responsible actions, but those actions haven’t been quite as quick as they need to be.” This of course is coming from a President who has done nothing to deal with our own country’s enormous debt crisis and who is in fact...

    Obama's Target ListWhile calling for civility, Obama demonizes everyone in sight. What with exhaustion, overexposure, and the temptation to comment on just about anything in the news, presidential candidates and presidents alike naturally often slip up. Given their hectic speaking schedules, they frequently mispronounce words (“nucular,” “corpse-man”), engage in the trivial (inflating tires and tuning up cars in lieu of drilling for more oil), and simply get things wrong (57 states). “Bushism” was coined about 2001 to refer to all the various ways that George W. Bush mangled the English language. There are, of course, just as many “Obamaisms,” though...

    The Maronite Catholic patriarch of Lebanon brought a message of universal forgiveness and mercy Monday to a Uniontown parish overflowing with Lebanese Catholics eager to see him. "Have you ever tried to live in a world without forgiveness? It is a cold, harsh and unbearable world," Patriarch Bechara Peter Rai told 750 people who had greeted him with applause and ululation. St. George Maronite Catholic Church in Uniontown holds 250 people and a tent was erected outside its front door to accommodate 500 more.He said that forgiveness and mercy is needed among Christians, Muslims and Jews, within the Christian church...

    While other voters have been disappointed by Obama's economic failures and arrogant, ham-handed approach to everything from health care reform to the Solyndra scandal, swing-voting Catholics have special reason to feel betrayed. In the past year, Obama's Justice Department has argued in court that defenders of traditional marriage — the most visible segment of which are observant Catholics and bishops — should be regarded in law as the equivalent of racists. His National Labor Relations Board has issued rulings against two Catholic schools, St. Xavier University in Chicago and Manhattan College in New York, saying that they are not sufficiently...

    Hillary, Obama and the Cult of Alinsky: "True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties.... Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power. ... Obama spent years teaching workshops on the Alinsky method. In 1985 he began

    (CNSNews.com) - Bantering with the audience at a fundraiser in St. Louis yesterday, President Barack Obama bragged about a new regulation, proposed by the Department of Health and Human Services, that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has denounced as an “unprecedented attack on religious liberty.” "Darn right!" an audience member at the fundraiser shouted as Obama described the regulation. “Darn tooting!” Obama said back. The proposed regulation, designed to implement part of Obamacare, will require all private health plans in the United States to cover sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives--including those that cause abortions—without charging any fees or co-pay....

    According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, just 37 percent of Americans believe President Obama will win reelection; 55 percent believe he will lose to the Republican nominee. This is not great news for the president, not necessarily because Americans are psychic, but because expectations often shape reality. In particular, a widespread belief that Obama will lose could widen the already problematic “enthusiasm gap“ for the president. It’s a tricky balance for the White House. Many of the president’s natural supporters are not feeling especially fired up this time around - particularly compared to the white-hot intensity seen among...

    Calling himself an "underdog," President Obama today said the faltering economy is a drag on his presidency and seriously impairing his chances of winning again in 2012. "Absolutely," he said in response to a question from ABC News' George Stephanopoulos about whether the odds were against him come November 2012, given the economy. "I'm used to being the underdog. But at the end of the day people are going to ask -- who's got a vision?" The American people, he conceded, are "not better off" than they were four years ago. "The unemployment rate is way too high," he said...
