Sorry it’s been so long since I last posted here, with writing for college, columns, and morning devotions I’ve not had sufficient time to do this blog justice. I shall try harder and by the way if you’re not receiving my morning devotion go ahead and email me and I’ll be sure you get it each weekday morning.
So what’s the latest with the Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Hussein Obama? Now I’m using his middle name only because I’m told I can’t and that if I do I’m a racist. Garbage!
For the record, that is the first time I’ve ever done that and if I’m seeming a little rebellious, stay with me. It’s time to peel the teflon coating off of Senator Obama’s exterior and take a closer look at the man notwithstanding the shouts and threats of the liberal media machine. This circling the wagons approach to vetting a candidate by the very institution that is protected by the Constitution to do so must have attention called to it. So I want to share with you a number of articles out there doing the job the media elites are failing to do.
My column at The Talon blog this week is titled “Unfit for Command.” I know, not a very original title but it was used with intent. Senator Obama has warned he will not be swift-boated as was John Kerry. I abhor the fact that the brilliant book “Unfit for Command” and the great American Heroes that make up the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth has turned into some type of pejorative.
Note to readers: if you feel the urge to castigate me for calling the book brilliant, if you have not read the book that means you do not have “anything intelligent to add to the conversation so do not pass up the opportunity to keep your mouth shut.” That brilliant quote comes from my last battalion commander before I retired now Colonel Eric Nelson, a fine cavalry officer. I told you I would quote you one day Sir!
There are a number of articles outside the mainstream media exposing the character, faith, person, and qualifications of Senator Obama. I wrote on the New Media Journal a couple of weeks ago on “The Deep Faith of Barack Obama.”
Lance Fairchok, a writing partner of mine, wrote last April on the American Thinker of “Another Obama Marxist.” Lance has also written some superb articles at NMJ:
Too Radical For America
Stage Managing the Manchurian Candidate
Another friend who is doing yeoman’s work on exposing Obama is Erik Rush; please visit his website “Full Contact Commentary” where you can sign up for email notifications of his latest articles. Erik has recently written on NMJ “Pond Scum for Obama” and at World Net Daily “Race Card Up His Sleeve”; both refreshingly blunt and truthful observations of the would-be president.
I know many conservatives bemoan Christians for having a litmus test on abortion but that very test is working against Obama. Catholic columnist Deal Hudson has written “pro-life Catholics should reject Barack Obama because of his pro-abortion positions. Hudson says Obama is so out of line with Catholic teaching on abortion that he can’t be supported for president.” Please read the whole story by Steven Ertelt at LifeNews.com.
For you Obama supporters who read this blog (I know you’re out there!) now that all the hoopla is over, the excitement of the primaries has moved to the drudgery and reality of a national campaign that has to be ran from the center, take notice what happens to your candidate. Compare his tone and his speeches to the overall public versus an adoring Democrat crowd. Go ahead and touch the merchandise to see if the paint is still wet and if not, scratch it. See what you find; you won’t have to dig down very deep.
This is not MTV or American Idol or a rock concert; this man wants to run our country even though he originally said he would not run for national office in four years. That’s just one of many lies this man has told.
Keep it tuned in here for more Obama Omens!
Diddo on the Hussein thing. Actually, a good friend of mine was surprised that I would have a problem with Obama because of his middle name. I told him it’s not so much the name, it’s that he is not forthright with what he really stands for. On the other hand he supports Palestinian causes, adores Louis Farrakhan and has the endorsement of people like the leaders of Hamas and Al Fatah as well as the one guy who was running in the latest elections in Kenya who said he would implement Sharia law if he would get elected. Gee, go figure. When this whole thing with his radical America hating pastor came out of which he tried to wiggle himself out, everyone looked at that but not at the connections or sympathies coming out from the Muslim Jihad loving camp. So much for our media. As I told you before, I focus on what’s going on in Israel listening Arutz Sheva/Israel National Radio. That’s where most of it was reported including people like Debbie Schlussel. I trust in God and I know he makes everything work for good, that doesn’t change the fact that I would be very concerned for our nations future if he became our next president – or King according to the book of Daniel (Redemption 57 website). I just had to throw in the last comment :-). On the other hand I wish Walid Shoebat would be able to run for President. If you know Walid, you know what he used to be in the past and how he made an about face turn becoming a devout Christian and lover of Israel.
Hi Dave- Ditto on what Andy says. While B. Hussein Obama says he will not be swift boated a la J.F. Kerry, he flip flops about as much as Kerry did, but I see him as much more dangerous for our country and our troops that Kerry was. Kerry was a blow hard with a rich wife who was without class. B. Hussein Obama is friends with known terrorists, his wife who, for the first time in her adult life is proud of this country, is in his words, his most trusted adviser. I am led to believe that she instigated the 20 years of tutlage under J. Wright and M Phlegar. Just my thoughts. I do like the way you get sarcastic sometimes Dave! 😉 You must have some Canadian in you somewhere! God Bless! Carolyn
Those emoticons are great fun, Dave! 🙂
Obama could not have run on this vague platform so successfully a few years ago. It just shows how few Americans (comparatively, I mean) have a grasp of our purpose as a nation. If Obama can win over millions with words such as “hope” and “change”, by saying that America needs something “NEW”, those millions have no concept of what Fred Thompson called our constitutional, Judeo-Christian “founding principles”. Boy, I’m just shocked sometimes at how people are skeptical when I say Barack Obama wants communism. In his statements, by twisting the Golden Rule into a Marxist, postmodern “toleration” idea of “equal distribution of wealth”, Obama can make socialism sound like a “Christian” thing.
I’m amazed over and over at how politically correct my thinking sometimes is; I’ve had to correct myself over and over, even though I’d been taught the pitfalls of political correctness my whole life! If I can slip into that thinking, having been forever conservative, our culture is sure steeped in political correctness, and Obama’s popularity is fruit of that. I think that debates are critical moments for shifting public opinion, and I HOPE Obama looks really bad when those start happening. That makes me a sadist. 😉 (Just kidding 🙂 )
“IN THEIR OWN WORDS”, yes indeed, Obama supporters, go ahead and check the words of Obama of only a few months (sometimes weeks) ago and also those of Hell-ary.
If you can’t believe what “us conservatives” are saying, then just hear it from the “horse’s or in this case the ass'” mouth.
race baiting, it would just be a matter of time before it was brought out. Obama is no different than Sharpton, Jackson, et-al. It is all about race to some people. For us, it is about CHARACTER, INTEGRITY and the HUMAN BEING. Obama is not fit to be President, he is indeed an INEXPERIENCED, ROOKIE SENATOR from one of the most corrupt cities in our nation (second only to New Orleans probably – another Liberal Haven) and I don’t care if he is black, hispanic or white, or has a funny name. But, I do care who HE IS AS A MAN and HIS ASSOCIATION, in that, he has no excuses.
If you decide to sit this one out my friends, you will be putting in power a man with all the above.
UNITY my “butt”, HYPOCRISY is what was shown by Obama and Hell-ary in Mass. Great state to do that by the way, I guess they could not find a town called “Hypocrisy USA”, I know of one….it is called Washington DC and he is PART OF IT.
By the way, the last entry was from DAVID TRIANA. I’m visiting with David J. Sorry Dave, I don’t want anyone to think it was your words on this last one. God Bless!!
