Obama’s Acts of preferential treatment for Islam:



May 2009 – While Obama does not host any National Day of Prayer event at the White House, he does host White House Iftar dinners in honor of Ramadan.

April 2010 – Christian leader Franklin Graham is disinvited from the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer Event because of complaints from the Muslim community.

April 2010 – The Obama administration requires rewriting of government documents and a change in administration vocabulary to remove terms that are deemed offensive to Muslims, including jihad, jihadists, terrorists, radical Islamic, etc.

August 2010 – Obama speaks with great praise of Islam and condescendingly of Christianity.

August 2010 – Obama went to great lengths to speak out on multiple occasions on behalf of building an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero, while at the same time he was silent about a Christian church being denied permission to rebuild at that location.

2010 – While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional Biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.

October 2011 – Obama’s Muslim advisers block Middle Eastern Christians’ access to the White House.

February 2012 – The Obama administration makes effulgent apologies for Korans being burned by the U. S. military, but when Bibles were burned by the military, numerous reasons were offered why it was the right thing to do.

Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.

You know you live in an Upside-down America if…
The Supreme Court of the United States can rule that lower courts cannot display the 10 Commandments in their courtroom, while sitting in front of a display of the 10 Commandments.

The Master of the Flip Flop!
OBAMA'S OWN WORDS TRAP HIM:
2008: "Navy Seal Team 6 is Cheney's private assassination team."
2011: "I put together Seal Team 6 to take out Bin Laden."
2008: "Bin Laden is innocent until proven guilty, and must be captured alive and given a fair trial."
2011: "I authorized Seal Team 6 to kill Bin Laden."
2008: "Guantanamo is entirely unnecessary, and the detainees should not be interrogated."
2011: "Vital intelligence was obtained from Guantanamo detainees that led to our locating Bin Laden."

Barack Obama - Either Doing His Best In One of The Most Difficult Times In American History, Or Hitler



Obama and HitlerBarack Obama, the first black president, proved to millions this year that he is either trying his best to lead the nation during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, or he is the modern-day incarnation of Adolph Hitler pushing his Socialistic agenda. One of the two.



In 2010, Barack Obama made a number of political compromises while still trying to pursue many of the reforms laid out during his 2008 campaign. Also, he was a totalitarian monster comparable to the perpetrator of one of the worst genocides in history.



Barack is either a president who passed a comprehensive health care measure despite staunch opposition from powerful private interests, or a radical-Islamist sympathizer bent on systematically dismantling American democracy and eradicating all human liberty.(he successfully socialized healthcare against the will of the people)



Barack either assisted all Americans by lowering taxes while failing to communicate that effectively, or he is pure evil destroying our government from the inside out with insurmountable debt.

Barack Obama, IS TWO of the most important people of 2010: the one who was elected to be president of the United States and execute laws to the best of his ability, and the one who murders senior citizens (government healthcare) murders babies (abortion) and hates all white people (his own book). Only history will say which he is for sure.


I BET IF YOU KNEW ABOUT THIS PLAN DURING THE ELECTION, YOU WOULD HAVE CALLED IT A LIE!!!

Obama Comes Out in Favor of Allowing Mosque Near Ground Zero

After skirting the controversy for weeks, President Barack Obama is weighing in forcefully on the mosque near ground zero, saying a nation built on religious freedom must allow it.
Click here to find out more!

WASHINGTON -- After skirting the controversy for weeks, President Barack Obama is weighing in forcefully on the mosque near ground zero, saying a nation built on religious freedom must allow it.

"As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as everyone else in this country," Obama told an intently listening crowd gathered at the White House Friday evening to observe the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

"That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances," he said. "This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakable."

The White House had not previously taken a stand on the mosque, which would be part of a $100 million Islamic community center two blocks from where nearly 3,000 people perished when hijacked jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center towers on Sept. 11, 2001. Press secretary Robert Gibbs had insisted it was a local matter.

Disposed, Exposed ... This poster isn't the only one who knows who's hiding behind your avatar, blondie.

Always trying to be slick. And it always backfires on you.

Always the uber-intellectual wannabe. Lol!

Except your hyperbole gets in the way!

PS And I'm always suspicious when a "new" poster tries ( and always fails ), to ring me up. It tells me it's an "old, known" poster who has a hard on for me, yet doesn't have the courage to challenge me in their "known" Screen Name.

that's true! When I seen the lines for gas on the news this morning my immediate thoughts were of Carter's presidency and the lines we had then, and the economy, and issues with terrorist, it's just a view of the past. Doesn't matter if the lines are Obama's fault or not, the imageary is there and so are millions of American's the thought the same thing when they seen the lines for gas. An image can be very powerful and with our economy, unemployment, Benghazi, it just all feels so familiar.

It was already much more than that, sparking debate around the country as top Republicans including Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich announced their opposition. So did the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish civil rights group.

Obama elevated it to a presidential issue Friday without equivocation.

While insisting that the place where the twin towers once stood was indeed "hallowed ground," Obama said that the proper way to honor it was to apply American values.

Harkening back to earlier times when the building of synagogues or Catholic churches also met with opposition, Obama said: "Time and again, the American people have demonstrated that we can work through these issues, and stay true to our core values and emerge stronger for it. So it must be and will be today."

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent who has been a strong supporter of the mosque, welcomed Obama's words as a "clarion defense of the freedom of religion."

But some Republicans were quick to pounce.

"President Obama is wrong," said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y. "It is insensitive and uncaring for the Muslim community to build a mosque in the shadow of ground zero."

Entering the highly charged election-year debate, Obama surely knew that his words would not only make headlines in the U.S. but be heard by Muslims worldwide. The president has made it a point to reach out to the global Muslim community, and the over 100 guests at Friday's dinner in the State Dining Room included ambassadors and officials from numerous nations where Islam is observed, including Saudi Arabia and Indonesia.

While his pronouncement concerning the mosque might find favor in the Muslim world, Obama's stance runs counter to the opinions of the majority of Americans, according to polls. A CNN/Opinion Research poll released this week found that nearly 70 percent of Americans opposed the mosque plan while just 29 percent approved. A number of Democratic politicians have shied away from the controversy.

Opponents, including some Sept. 11 victims' relatives, see the prospect of a mosque so near the destroyed trade center as an insult to the memory of those killed by Islamic terrorists in the 2001 attacks.

Before I go. Remember this. The American PEOPLE will do far more for there fellow Americans than any government ever will. The American PEOPLE are out there restoring power, rescuing people, cooking food, and bringing people into their homes for shelter. Obama himself said we need to get government out of the way. Regulations and red tape to get the help to the people who need it. Gee if works in a disaster shouldn't it work all the time? Maybe you libtards can take a clue from Obama. The government is not the solution. It's the problem.

Understanding Obama: The Making of a Fuehrer

By Ali Sina 8/09/22



I must confess I was not impressed by Sen. Barack Obama from the first time I saw him. At first I was excited to see a black candidate. He looked youthful, spoke well, appeared to be confident – a wholesome presidential package. It is so instinctive for most people to want to see blacks succeed. It is as if all humanity is carrying a collective guilt for what the ancestors of blacks endured. However, despite my initial interest in him, I was put off soon, not just because of his shallowness but also because there was an air of haughtiness in his demeanor that was unsettling. His posture and his body language were louder than his empty words.



It is surreal to see the level of hysteria in his admirers. This phenomenon is unprecedented in American politics. Women scream and swoon during his speeches. They yell and shout to Obama,“I love you.” Never did George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt. Martin Luther King Jr. or Ronald Reagan arouse so much raw emotion. Despite their achievements, none of them was raised to the rank of Messiah. The Illinois senator has no history of service to the country. He has done nothing outstanding except giving promises of change and hyping his audience with hope. It’s only his words, not his achievements that is causing this much uproar.



When cheering for someone turns into adulation, something is wrong. Excessive adulation is indicative of a personality cult. The cult of personality is often created when the general population is discontent. A charismatic leader can seize the opportunity and project himself as an agent of change and a revolutionary leader. Often, people, tired of the status quo, do not have the patience to examine the nature of the proposed change. All they want is change. During 1979, when the Iranians were tired of the dictatorial regime of the late Shah, they embraced Khomeini, not because they wanted Islam, but because he promised them change. The word in the street was,“anything is better than the Shah.” They found their error when it was too late.

When the Hoopla Is Over Will Obama Let Down Mexicans?
By Allan Wall
• The hope in Mexico is that Obama will grant an amnesty to Mexican illegal aliens in the U.S.
Tomorrow, January 20th, 2009, is the scheduled inauguration of Barack Obama as President of the United States. What does this mean for the U.S., and the world?
Does it mean the departure of the wicked George W. Bush, and his replacement with the marvelous Barack Obama who will bring peace, put an end to fear, and stop global warming?
That’s the sort of over-the-top rhetoric we’ve been hearing. Many Obama supporters display a disturbing cult-like fervor, and the mainstream media didn’t even bother to hide its pro-Obama bias during the election.
Nevertheless, the “Bush-as-root-of-all-evil” crowd is in for a real letdown when they discover that Barack Obama can’t deliver all that’s been promised.
Certainly the Bush administration has a lot to answer for, and its incompetence helped pave the way for Obama’s victory. But after January 20th, it’s time for Obama to actually deliver something concrete.
Disappointment is inevitable. In fact, Obama is not even president but some of the sheen is already wearing off.
Ludicrously enough, Obama has already been blamed for the fighting in Gaza. In Iran, his posters have been publicly burned and he’s been ridiculed by the chief of the powerful Council of Guardians. Who can doubt that Obama will not satisfy everybody in the Middle East. After all, who could?
Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez, who was supposed to get on famously with Obama, has already turned against him. Bigmouth Hugo has accused Obama of meddling in Venezuela, and says Obama has the same “stench” as President Bush.(The “stench” part likely alludes to Hugo’s calling Bush the devil in a speech to the United Nations.)
Obama isn’t even president yet and already he has international critics. After his administration gets rolling, how can he avoid offending more people? For a U.S. president – any U.S. president – that must be impossible nowadays.
The truth is, we don’t know for certain how Obama will govern. Will he follow his far left background, or govern from the middle? How will he get along with Congress? Neither Obama’s detractors nor his supporters can really tell us.
Nor is there much in Obama’s biography that can enlighten us. Except for a short stint as editor of Harvard Law Review, Obama has zero experience as a public administrator.
And despite all the calls for “hope” and “change,” what objective observer can doubt that Obama will continue many Bush policies, just as Bush continued some Clinton policies?
In Mexico there are some great expectations about the new Obama administration. Polling indicates that among Mexicans who had an opinion (because all didn’t) most preferred Obama over McCain.
Last summer I heard a Mexican talking who thought Obama already was the president! Given the media coverage, that’s understandable.
The hope in Mexico is that Obama will grant an amnesty to Mexican illegal aliens in the U.S. However, those who think that may be disappointed.
In the first place, a U.S. president can’t simply snap his fingers and grant an amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. Although he doesn’t get credit for it in Mexico, George W. Bush tried repeatedly to give illegal aliens an amnesty. Bush failed, not for lack of trying but because illegal alien amnesty is quite unpopular, and the legislation was stopped by grassroots opposition.
The same thing could happen to Obama if he tries.
In the Senate a new bill that could provide an amnesty has already been introduced, but who knows what will become of it?
Furthermore, despite lip service, illegal alien amnesty is probably not near the top of Obama’s priorities.
If reactivating the economy and creating jobs are Obama’s priorities, then how keenly are American voters going to view amnesty or a guest worker program?

Georgia Congressman warns of Obama Dictatorship
By BEN EVANS – 11 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP)— A Republican congressman from Georgia said Monday he fears that President-elect Obama will establish a Gestapo-like security force to impose a Marxist or fascist dictatorship.
"It may sound a bit crazy and off base, but the thing is, he's the one who proposed this national security force," Rep. Paul Broun said of Obama in an interview Monday with The Associated Press. "I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that we may — may not, I hope not — but we may have a problem with that type of philosophy of radical socialism or Marxism."
Broun cited a July speech by Obama that has circulated on the Internet in which the then-Democratic presidential candidate called for a civilian force to take some of the national security burden off the military.
"That's exactly what Hitler did in Nazi Germany and it's exactly what the Soviet Union did," Broun said. "When he's proposing to have a national security force that's answering to him, that is as strong as the U.S. military, he's showing me signs of being Marxist."
Obama's comments about a national security force came during a speech in Colorado about building a new civil service corps. Among other things, he called for expanding the nation's foreign service and doubling the size of the Peace Corps "to renew our diplomacy."
"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set," Obama said in July. "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."
Broun said he also believes Obama likely will move to ban gun ownership if he does build a national police force.
Obama has said he respects the Second Amendment right to bear arms and favors "common sense" gun laws. Gun rights advocates interpret that as meaning he'll at least enact curbs on ownership of assault weapons and concealed weapons. As an Illinois state lawmaker, Obama supported a ban on semiautomatic weapons and tighter restrictions on firearms generally.
"We can't be lulled into complacency," Broun said. "You have to remember that Adolf Hitler was elected in a democratic Germany. I'm not comparing him to Adolf Hitler. What I'm saying is there is the potential."
Obama's transition office did not respond immediately to Broun's remarks.
