Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings?
Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets “goose bumps” when a band plays “The Star Spangled Banner,” or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of “America the Beautiful?”
Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday – or someone plays “taps” on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values.
He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn’t have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.
Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn’t delight in being part of America and its greatness.
He wasn’t singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the gravesites of fallen and beloved American heroes.
Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn’t really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.
He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many.
Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego.
He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who oppose his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.
Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America, rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the “Great Uniter”).
He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue.
Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security.
He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions.
And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.
Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.
Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.
Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.
Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people – on a daily basis!
Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America, and the epitome of a Demagogue.
“Obama comes from a community organizer background where it’s us against them. But that’s not who we are. And that’s not the position the leader of our Nation should take.” – Dr. Benjamin Carson
Obama appears to be a tormented man who is filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors. It seems to have never left him.
It is not the color of his skin that is a problem – for anyone in America. Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

The Bloody Hands of Barack Obama
Source: American Thinker
Author: Stella Paul – May 13, 2013
The Three Whistleblowers at the Benghazi hearing spoke softly, but with the emotional wallop of The Three Tenors. They told the truth, and it blasted like thunder through Obama’s tissue palace of lies.
Listening to these strong, solemn men, I heard the sound of old America: a place of hardworking people who love their country and believe in something bigger than their own power.
The America of Gregory Hicks, Mark Thompson, and Eric Nordstrom won World War II, walked on the moon, and defeated Communism. But today, their America is forced to serve a different god: a cold, smiling man with a hollow heart and hands that get bloodier by the day.
Obama stands center stage in this tragic opera of America’s downfall, cheapening, endangering, and destroying the lives of the best among us. The pile of corpses grows ever higher, and the lies more noxious.
Let’s pay tribute to some of his many victims, and vow to honor their memory by holding him to account.
BENGHAZI: Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods.
Obama failed to attend a single intelligence briefing in the week before September 11, 2012. As the Libyan consulate in Benghazi came under attack that day, he disappeared for the evening, then jetted off the next day for a Las Vegas fundraiser. Meanwhile, Ambassador Stevens was raped, murdered, and dragged through the streets by al-Qaeda-linked terrorists, while three brave Americans died trying to defend him.
Having ignored Ambassador Stevens’s previous reports of a “security vacuum” in Libya, Obama allowed the abortion of two rescue missions ready to fly to Benghazi. Regional security officer Eric Nordstrom testified that “… whether or not you’re sitting off at a post, requesting resources, preparing for testimony before this committee, or standing on a building surrounding by an armed mob attacking you, the message is the same: ‘You’re on your own.’”
BOSTON MARATHON BOMBING: Martin Richard (age 8), Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi, and Sean Collier.
The Russians and the Saudis both say they warned Obama’s security team about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of two jihad-crazed brothers who set off fatal bombs at the Boston Marathon finish line and then killed police officer Sean Collier. The FBI interviewed Tamerlan, found nothing, and failed to inform the Boston police of Russia’s multiple warnings. The Tsarnaev brothers were free to pursue their murderous plot, while living the high life on taxpayer welfare.
After the city of Boston was put on lockdown, surviving brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured and began to talk about his schemes. But this potential life-saving information (reportedly, the brothers planned to attack New York) was squelched when Obama’s Department of Justice rushed to charge him with a crime and read him his Miranda rights. Dzhokhar immediately shut up.
The feds refuse to let the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth release Dzhokhar’s college records, claiming it would violate federal privacy law. Meanwhile, two illegal aliens have been arrested as accomplices; Obama’s Department of Homeland Security allowed one of them to re-enter the U.S. in January without a valid student visa.
OPERATION FAST AND FURIOUS: Brian Terry, Jaime Zapata, and hundreds of unnamed Mexicans.
Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, conducted a secret gun-running operation that supplied thousands of assault weapons to drug cartels in Mexico. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata were both murdered with Fast and Furious guns. Their families have filed wrongful death lawsuits against the federal government.
The Terry lawsuit claims that the federal officials “created, organized, implemented and/or participated in a plan – code named ‘Operation Fast and Furious’ – to facilitate the distribution of dangerous firearms to violent criminals” and that they “knew or should have known that their actions would cause substantial injuries, significant harm, and even death to Mexican and American civilians and law enforcement, but were recklessly indifferent to the consequence of their actions.” Eric Holder has been found in contempt of Congress for refusing to release requested documented to congressional investigators, and he appears to have committed perjury in his testimony.
FORT HOOD: Juanita Warman, Libardo Caraveo, John P. Gaffaney, Russell Seager, Justin Decrow, Amy Krueger, Jason Hunt, Frederick Greene, Aaron Nemelka, Michael Pearson, Kham Xiong, Francheska Velez (and unborn child, and Michael G. Cahill.
On November 5, 2009, Army Major Nidal Hasan opened fire on a group of soldiers preparing to deploy to Iraq, killing 13 and wounding 32. Associates raised repeated questions about his strange behavior but were squashed by what they call the Pentagon’s “political correctness.” A devout Muslim, Hasan was in extensive communication with al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki, printed up business cards that read “Soldier of Allah,” dressed in Islamic martyrdom garb, and handed out korans the morning of the attack. He screamed “Allahu Akbar” as he opened fire.
Nevertheless, Obama refuses to deem the largest attack on a U.S. military installation in history a terrorist assault, insisting that it be classified “workplace violence.” Hasan’s victims have been denied Purple Hearts. Fort Hood hero Kimberly Munley told ABC News that Obama “betrayed” her and the other victims. “Not to the least little bit have the victims been taken care of,” she said. “In fact, they’ve been neglected.”
NAVY SEAL TEAM VI HELICOPTER CRASH IN AFGHANISTAN, AUGUST 2011: Jonas B. Kelsall, Louis J. Langlais, Thomas A. Ratzlaff, Kraig M. Vickers, Brian R. Bill, John W. Faas, Kevin A. Houston, Matthew D. Mason, Stephen M. Mills, Nicholas H. Null, Robert J. Reeves, Heath M. Robinson, Darrik C. Benson, Christopher G. Campbell, Jared W. Day, John Douangdara, Michael J. Strange, Jon T. Tumilson, Aaron C. Vaughn, Jason R. Workman, Jesse D. Pittman, Nicholas P. Spehar, David R. Carter, Bryan J. Nichols, Patrick D. Hamburger, Alexander J. Bennett, Spencer C. Duncan, John W. Brown, Andrew W. Harvell, and Daniel L. Zerbe.
On May 2, 2011, members of SEAL Team VI invaded Osama bin Laden’s Pakistani compound and killed him. Three months later, 30 American troops, most of them members of SEAL Team VI, were shot down by the Taliban over Afghanistan.
On May 9, 2013, families of the fallen held a press conference to accuse Barack Obama of complicity in their deaths. They charged Obama with endangering SEAL Team VI by breaking protocol and revealing its identity as bin Laden’s killers. They also revealed that their sons were sent to battle with inadequate equipment and air support and denied requested pre-assault fire.
The families played a video of their sons’ military funeral. No mention of the Judeo-Christian God was allowed, but the Pentagon invited a Muslim cleric to speak, who cursed their sons in Arabic as infidels condemned to hell.
Karen Vaughn, mother of fallen SEAL Aaron Vaughn, said, “Why was there no pre-assault fire? We were told as families because pre-assault fire damages our efforts to win the hearts and mind of our enemy. In other words, the hearts and mind of our enemy are more valuable to this government than my son’s blood.“
Alas, I have no room to name all the troops killed by Obama’s crippling Rules of Engagement. “American troops are needlessly exposed to increased enemy attack, suffer unnecessary casualties, cannot secure or control the indigenous population and are not allowed to deny freedom of movement or maneuver to the Taliban,” according to a tactical commander in Afghanistan. As a result, more than twice as many American soldiers have died in Afghanistan under four years of Obama than in eight years under Bush.
Nor do I have room to list all the Americans murdered and maimed by the illegal aliens to whom Obama shows such special devotion. This week, Chris Crane, president of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers union, said Obama has “attempted to shut down” border enforcement Obama released 5,000 criminal aliens from jail and “absolutely” tied law enforcement’s hands. Recently, , blaming sequestration cuts, and created special protections against deportation for illegal aliens with “serious mental disorders.”
In the White House lives the man with the blood-red hands. The screams and sobs of his victims grow louder by the day.

One might say that “reality” is “that which actually is.” In other words, it is “truth.” We, as a society, are not living in reality. Most people glide through life ignoring truth, and especially The Truth that comes from Almighty God. Like the ostrich, we hide our heads in the sand, thinking we can avoid what God says is true.
I have come to the conclusion that we as a society are indulging in one big gigantic party, which reminds me of these verses from the Scriptures:
“1 King Belshazzar gave a great banquet for a thousand of his nobles and drank wine with them.
2 While Belshazzar was drinking his wine, he gave orders to bring in the gold and silver goblets that Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken from the temple in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines might drink from them.
3 So they brought in the gold goblets that had been taken from the temple of God in Jerusalem, and the king and his nobles, his wives and his concubines drank from them.
4 As they drank the wine, they praised the gods of gold and silver, of bronze, iron, wood and stone.
5 Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared and wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lampstand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote.
6 His face turned pale and he was so frightened that his legs became weak and his knees were knocking.
13 So Daniel was brought before the king, and the king said to him, “Are you Daniel, one of the exiles my father the king brought from Judah?
17 Then Daniel answered the king, “You may keep your gifts for yourself and give your rewards to someone else. Nevertheless, I will read the writing for the king and tell him what it means.
18 “Your Majesty, the Most High God gave your father Nebuchadnezzar sovereignty and greatness and glory and splendor.
22 “But you, Belshazzar, his son, have not humbled yourself, though you knew all this.
23 Instead, you have set yourself up against the Lord of heaven. You had the goblets from his temple brought to you, and you and your nobles, your wives and your concubines drank wine from them. You praised the gods of silver and gold, of bronze, iron, wood and stone, which cannot see or hear or understand. But you did not honor the God who holds in his hand your life and all your ways.
24 Therefore he sent the hand that wrote the inscription.
25 “This is the inscription that was written: mene, mene, tekel, parsin
26 “Here is what these words mean: Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign and brought it to an end.
27 Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.
28 Peres: Your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”
30 That very night Belshazzar, king of the Babylonians, was slain,
31 and Darius the Mede took over the kingdom, at the age of sixty-two.”
These verses are taken from the book of Daniel, chapter five. If I didn’t know better, I would think they were written yesterday by just changing a few names.

The leaders of this once great nation are in party mode and leading us to destruction. Generally speaking, our forefathers feared God and we have been greatly blessed. However our present day leaders have ignored the God of our forefathers and have gone after other gods. The golf courses, beaches, night clubs, and secret hotel rooms are filled with Godless politicians, while we the people are being sucked down the drain of hopelessness for our country’s survival.
Even we lowly citizens, as a whole, who have put these rapscallions in office, are in party mode, going through life like there will never be an accountability.

I don’t know how God will ultimately judge us, but I do know we are long over-due.
From the back alleys to the White House, sin has saturated our nation. Even our churches, in general, are dens of thieves and houses of harlots before the God they “say” they worship. We have taken those things that belong to God, and desecrated them with our frivolousness.
The people we call our heroes are usually, not always, degenerate in their thinking and filled with hatred toward God, their Creator. The holy name of God is mocked, while the “stars” of society are worshipped. Our consciences have been seared with the hot iron of sin and we have made Satan our king.

It is my opinion that God has been warning us even prior to September 11, 2001, but we would rather party. We were brought to our knees on September 11, 2001 and rushed to the churches, but guess what? Nothing happened. Oh really? We have had disaster after disaster; hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, drought, economic woes, loss of life, blizzards, and it goes on and on.
We didn’t stay long at the churches after September 11, 2001, except for those who stayed because they like being told what fine people they are while they indulge in their sins.
Reality still has not set in for us as a nation. We still want to party, but sooner or later the party will end and we will be left with nothing but one huge hangover.

The reality for us as a nation is judgment. It is coming. The reality for us individually is judgment if we don’t sober up and get our lives right before Almighty God. [Related Article: The Sedgefield Community]
Soon, the Lord Jesus Christ is going to return for His Church. He will remove His Church, the Bride, from this planet and take her to His Father’s house in Heaven while He carries out judgment upon this fallen world. It will be a time of absolute hell on earth.
You can laugh. You can mock. You can put your party hat back on and pour yourself another cup of rebellion, but if you do not repent before Jesus Christ, you will face reality.
The reality for those who are the Bride of Christ is salvation by God’s grace and fellowship with Him forever in Heaven.
The reality for those who reject Him is judgment.

“Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib…: Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. From the sole of the foot even unto the head [there is] no soundness in it; [but] wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment,” (Isaiah 1:2 – 4, 6).

The Lord has spoken even to us living in the United States of America and He expects us to pay attention to His warnings. But do we? Not so you’d notice. What a privilege to have been born in America and brought up in a nation of freedom and liberty. Now as America stands at the precipice of time all we can see is corruption, deceit, hatred, putrefying sores, unsoundness of mind. We are in a state of total rebellion against out Creator.

“And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;” (Isaiah 1:15, 16).
God is pleading with His people to turn away from all evil. Here in America and around the world His people’s hands are soiled. Even so He’s beseeching us to return to Him and become clean once again.
What a wonderful place to live, this country of ours, and yet we have become the corruptor of nations. We are so greedy that other nations have become just like us, mirroring our greed. There does seem to be an approaching end to our silver and gold which have certainly been our idols for years now.
“Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither [is there any] end of their treasures;… Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:” (Isaiah 2:7, 8). Billions spent to bailout greedy banking institutions bears witness to the systematic elimination of our silver and gold.
“The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day,” (Isaiah 2:11).
There’s a day coming, not too far into the future, which will bring men to their knees. Our God – the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob – will, very soon I’m afraid, put a stop to the pervasive evil that has permeated the earth. How can man stand against God? What man has ever prevailed against God?
Rebellion in our very young children at times is cute and at other times quite annoying and brings about the possibility of some sort of punishment. Rebellion against God is never cute, and there’s no question God will bring His punishment to bear.

Isaiah was a prophet enlisted by God Himself to herald God’s displeasure and remedies to the nation of Israel. We here in America can certainly take stock in the fact that if God’s displeasure with Israel brought devastating consequences to His chosen people, we Americans can rest assured God’s wrath will come down on this rebellious gentile nation as well.

The financial situation in our land is only a part of the overall problem confronting each individual in America today. Once again God is desperately attempting to get our attention. His word (the Holy Bible) gives all indication that He is serious when He chastises His people. Our Banks are failing in droves and huge conglomerates are taking unheard of massive financial hits, the stock market reflecting a sense of insecurity in our nation today is only a fraction of what we can expect if we continue in our rebellion to our God.

We must look at the whole picture before our eyes. We are all aware of the crises confronting us as Americans, and we can all understand why this has happened if we just give it a little thought. As a nation, we are steeped in immorality, deception, greed, hatred, and in false religions that don’t glorify the one true God, the God who created Heaven and Earth, the God who gave us His Word to live by.

Rebellion is spreading. When did this rebellion start? It started in The Garden of Eden with two young adults who were given everything, even the title deed to the earth. What else could they have wanted? They already owned it all. It’s the same today, there are incredibly wealthy people who are unsatisfied with what God has blessed them with, and they want more. When they achieve more they still aren’t content and strive for even more.
According to history, people won’t be satisfied even after they obtain it all. Solomon who was the wealthiest man who ever lived penned the following statement. “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all [is] vanity.” (Ecclesiastes 1:2).
After it was all said and done Solomon wrote this admonition, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this [is] the whole [duty] of man,” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
Satisfaction is only guaranteed when God’s people seek Him. “[Seek him] that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD [is] his name:” (Amos 5:8).
As God’s people we should seek Him in our daily lives. No matter what else happens in life, we must resolve to seek God’s presence and his will, and this resolve should never be compromised.
There is a sense of urgency among commentators today, we can read scores of articles on the subject of financial ruin and end times scenarios, and no one can find the United States of America in the end time prophecies. Just take a look around at all the confusion in this country; certainly we must come to the conclusion that we aren’t mentioned because we are no longer a viable entity. There really is no simple answer to where the US will be during the end times and the 70th week of Daniel. After so many years at the top of the heap will America become subordinated to a lesser position, perhaps a position of say a third world nation? It didn’t seem possible a few years ago but it sure makes for interesting conversation now.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them; And this house, …which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house? And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers… therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them,”
(2 Chronicles 7:14, 19, 21, 22).
Jesus Christ is our God, and Christians who are called by His name must humble themselves and pray and seek His face and turn from their wicked ways. [Related Article: The Antichrist Spirit and Richmond, VA]
Personally, my thoughts are that since God established this nation a moral nation with Christian values, He has every right to disestablish it. I believe we are currently living through God’s disestablishment of America. If we would turn from our evil ways He would heal our land. How can we, the body of Christ, convince over three hundred million people that they need to turn from their wicked ways?
I’ve heard figures of approximately one third to one half of the US are Christian. If that be the case, and if we each took on the responsibility of speaking to two or three non-believers, we should have this problem fixed in short order. On the other hand, when we confront those who say they are Christian but then follow up with the statement “ But I’m not a practicing Christian”, then I see the figure of one third to one half of all Americans proclaiming to be Christian, dramatically reduced. By the way, what is someone who says “I’m not a practicing Christian”? If we are truly born again, are we not practicing Christians?
I know full well as do many who will be reading this commentary, that this nation isn’t going to get down on their knees and begin to ask God for forgiveness any time soon. Interestingly it won’t take the whole nation. If we His people, that means those of us who are truly born again, born from above, will repent and turn from our wicked ways He will heal our land. God isn’t calling on the whole of the U.S., he’s singling out His people, those who bear His Name. This is a corporate prayer He’s asking for. All believers should examine themselves and willingly seek God’s face and repent of the rebellion that has taken over this land.

The current Wall Street crisis is a call to arms. God is calling on all believers to put on His armor as in Ephesians 6, and to intercede and pray for this nation, to get down on their knees and repent before Him. If we will do this as a body, the body of Christ, He will be faithful to forgive us and to heal our land. If we stubbornly refuse to do this simple task, well then, God knows what the future will hold for America and its stiff necked people.
