Barack Obama, our next President

Budget office: Obama’s health law reduces deficit
Overall, spending cuts and tax increases in Obama’s law more than offset new spending,
Repealing the law, as Republicans want to do, would increase the deficit by $109 billion from 2013 to 2022.

The DHS “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment”(PDF) appears to target and profile taxpaying and law abiding Americans who are conservative, populist politically, or Christian in their religious faith. The Report profiles all American’s who disagree with plans for world currency and a new world order. Millions of American’s are being profiled as terrorists, bomb-making militia members and white supremacists simply because they are critical of certain institutions that are technically completely separate from the American government. For example, American’s who express criticism of world government, the new world order, the United Nation, the North American Union, the Federal Reserve, RFID technology and foreign nations like Russia, India and China can be profiled as “rightwing extremists,” even though all of these things are theoretically separate from the U.S. government. In addition, even if these entities did have something to do with the U.S. Government, U.S. citizen’s have a Constitutional right under the First Amendment to peacefully, and in a law abiding manner exercise their freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of the press without fear government interference.

In addition, in a manner very similar to the Hitler Youth, the Congress of the United States is passing a bill that is referred to as “Obama Youth Bill.” This bill will put millions of young people in the streets of America to act as agents for Obama. Yet, in the legal language of the bill there are many passages which forbid any young man or woman who is a practicing Christian and attends church, volunteers for church ministries, attends or leads worship services and Bible studies or shares his or her faith in Christ from being part of this “Obama Youth” or national service corps. In other words, practicing Christians are not allowed to become a part of the national service corps. Based on the history of the Hitler Youth, it is not difficult to understand why this is put in the national service corps bills.

For all the Evangelical Pastors who promoted President Obama, look carefully at the language of the bill. This bill’s title is called “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education”(GIVE). It forms what some are calling “Obama’s Youth Brigade” and his goal is to enroll over one million youth. But, look at the anti-Christian nature of the bill.

The Bill would forbid any student in the brigade to participate in “engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.” That means no church attendance or sharing your faith.

Here is part of the HR1388 Bill’s wording:
Section 125 (42 U.S.C. 12575) is amended to read as follows:
(7) Engaging in religious instruction, conducting worship services, providing instruction as part of a program that includes mandatory religious instruction or worship, constructing or operating facilities devoted to religious instruction or worship, maintaining facilities primarily or inherently devoted to religious instruction or worship, or engaging in any form of religious proselytization.

In other words Christians would not be allowed to be part of this Obama Youth Movement. Why do you think that is? Dr. Orly Taitz, is a female attorney who lives in Mission Viejo, California. She is also a dentist and speaks five languages. According to an interview she gave in WorldNetDaily, she was born and raised in Kishinev, the capital of the Republic of Moldova, a country in Eastern Europe that was formerly part of the Soviet Union. She compares the “Obama Youth Bill” to the Soviet Union which used children for slave labor and indoctrination.

Dr. Taitz said,“Parents were not allowed to home school their children. They were forced to enroll them in government schools. From the age of 6, all children were required to become young communists. You had to send your child to school, and your child had to be a member of the young communists,” Taitz said.“There were no children who were not members. You had to do it. If you were one of the best, you become a member of the Communist Party. It was constant brainwashing. There was no choice, and people resented that. They were scared to speak up.”

There are parallels between what happened in the Soviet Union and Nazi, Germany and what is happening in America now. Bible believing Christians are being profiled as dangerous “rightwing extremists.” In Communist China churches and Christians are not allowed to preach or teach on Bible prophecy. In the same way Christians who believe in “end time’s prophecies” are to be profiled. The same thing is now happening in America.

These “unnamed”“rightwing extremists, a term which is used over 47 times appears to profile any taxpaying U.S. citizen who may hold one or more of the following beliefs and could be classified on an elaborate government computer network as a “rightwing extremist, militia member or terrorist.

Any one of the following beliefs could classify an individual or groups as a terrorist:

• Pro-life
• Critical of the United Nations
• Critical of the New World Order
• Critical of the Federal Reserve
• Homosexual marriage
• Oppose the North American Union (which officially does not exist)
• Critical of the income tax
• Oppose illegal immigration
• Fear foreign powers such as Communist China, Iran, Russia and India
• If you are concerned that China and India are prospering economically while America is on the down turn
• Critical of any of President Obama’s policies ( abortion, homosexual marriage. etc.)
• Concern about RFID chips
• Belief in Bible prophecy or “End Time Prophecies”

Jay Z gave NJ RAIDER1 the BIG MIDDLE FINGER aaaaaaahhhhhh First Barneys, now Barclays.

A trio of black Barclays Center luxury box license-holders claim they were subjected to ugly racism by facility staffers, according to a bombshell $4 million Brooklyn federal court lawsuit filed Thursday.

Ludwig’s Drug Store, of Prospect Heights, purchased rights to the box for three years on October 10 for nearly $1 million – but employees claim that they’ve been treated worse than nosebleed shmoes ever since inking the pricey deal.

Barclays staffers have accused them of skipping out on bills, ignoring their food and drink orders and even dispatching security guards to investigate their box, according to the suit.

The final straw came when they were charged $1,000 for pizza during a recent visit, the suit states.

Pharmacy staffers Glen DeFreitas, Sean Scarborough, and Jermaine Pratt claim that they’ve been singled out for the shoddy treatment because they are black –and argue that other luxury box holders at the home of the Brooklyn Nets are treated like royalty.

“Since the licensing of the box, Glen Defreitas, Jermaine Pratt and Sean Scarborough have been subject to adverse treatment because of their race,” the suit states.

Defreitas alleges that Barclays Senior Vice President of suite and ticket sales Brian Basloe approached him on several occasions to ask why he was hanging around the ritzy portions of the arena.

“Why are you always here?” he asked, according to the suit.“You’ve been coming here a lot.”

Defreitas told him that he had box rights and Basloe backed off, according to the suit.“Sometimes I have to be the bad guy,” Basloe said.“I have a background in law enforcement.”

On Oct. 19, the trio overheard arena staffers on a radio remarking that they were a security threat and that their box should be investigated, the suit states.

But a Barclays strike force invaded the wrong box and forced occupants to the floor to investigate them, the suit charges.

The trio also claims that their treatment was far from luxurious when it came to food and drink.

“They are often ignored by defendants staff and are forced to wait extensive periods of time for their orders to be fulfilled,” the suit states.“Generally their orders arrive hours after they are placed, if they arrive at all.”

On October 26th, they claimed that they ordered pizza for a guest. They waited an hour for it to arrive, were accused of not paying for it, and were then smashed with a $1,000 bill, the suit charges.

A Ludwig’s staffer would not comment on the suit.

The trio claims that they are the only black luxury box licensees at Barclays Center.

“We have neither received legal papers nor any complaints from the suite holder,” Barclays communication director Barry Baum told The Post.“In fact, we have never received a complaint like this since Barclays Center has opened. We have a zero tolerance policy for any type of discriminatory behavior. It is against everything that Barclays Center stands for.

We take these matters very seriously and will immediately and thoroughly investigate them.”

The rust-colored arena at Flatbush and Atlantic avenues is the second Jay-Z related venture that has been nailed with racism raps in recent weeks.

The mogul has a business relationship with Barneys — and was skewered for not speaking out after a black customer sued the store saying he was falsely accused of using a stolen credit card to purchase a pricey belt.

The impresario held a minor stake in the Nets but sold his shares earlier this year so he could start a talent management company.

He still owns a small stake in the arena, which he inaugurated with a series of concerts last year.

And Macy’s has also been accused of having shoppers stopped after making purchases with a black couple from Brooklyn filing suit on Wednesday, saying they were racially profiled at the department store giant’s Garden City, LI store.

Well first the $700 billion from medicare will never happen. It has always been postponed since the cuts were announced. The medical device tax will be repealed. Their are a few others that don't have a chance of staying alive but don't remember what they are at present. The medicaid sign ups are far more than expected and the young people are not going to sign up. Your over a year old website ain't going to cut it anymore. This disaster is going down in flames.

What is interesting about the above list is that a great deal with it has to do with things that have nothing to do with the individual nation. The only possible reason any national government would be concerned about its citizen’s objecting to things like new world order, world government, the United Nations, homosexual marriage, a regional global government like the North American Union, abortion, RFID chips and belief in end times prophecies is because this is what they are planning to promote in the near future. Otherwise why be bothered about it?

I would suggest to you that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled far faster than most of us realize and that this why governments around the world are concerned about these things.

Make no mistake about it across the U.S., Europe, Australia and other regions, Bible believing Christian are going to be persecuted before the Tribulation Period. However many Christians and Christian leaders think that if they “give up land for peace,” they will be left alone. That does not work for Israel and it will not work for the Church. Getting up and apologizing on national television for supporting traditional marriage as some American ministers have done, is not going to earn you acceptance from the world. Anymore than Israel giving up land for peace has brought about an end to terrorism. The answer is to obey the words of Jesus Christ when He tells us to “occupy until I come.” This is not a plea for a kind of Christian reconstructionism, it is simply Jesus telling us to faithfully proclaim the truth in season and out of season until He comes for His Church. Maranatha!

CIVIL RIGHTS at its' best Chicago businessman Yusef Jackson, a son of the Rev. Jesse Jackson, is selling the Budweiser beer distributorship he bought 16 years after his father led a national boycott of the country’s largest brewery over its lack of minority-owned distributors.

Jackson told the Chicago Sun-Times that River North Sales & Service has reached an agreement with the Hand Family Companies and BDT Capital Partners to sell its assets and combine with City Beverage Illinois to create the “largest beer distributor in the Chicagoland area, selling over 23.5 million case equivalents.”

Representatives of the Hand Family, who are white, could not be reached Thursday for comment.

“I am proud to have led the River North Sales and Service team for nearly 15 years,” Jackson said in a written statement,“evolving River North into a forceful and competitive organization built around a strong and dynamic team of people, world-class beer brands and an innovative and creative approach to the business. By fostering this business, we have been able to grow and flourish in Chicago, an extremely sophisticated and competitive beer market.”

Benj Steinman, who runs a beer industry trade publication, said the move should not affect Joe Six Pack.“I don’t think it will affect the average beer drinker much, it could affect the competitive dynamics in Chicago. Potentially (beer drinkers) may get more of some brands and less of others, but it’s all yet to be determined ... it’s going to take some time to unfold.”

Steinman said Jackson had made several moves to strengthen his business in the emergence of the craft beer market, such as becoming the city’s largest distributor of Goose Island beer.“He also has a lot of other strong brands,” said Steinman.

CIA Report: United States Negative $561 Billion
The U.S. Is At The Bottom Of The List Of 191 Nations! This Is Not An Accident!

The United States of America is being destroyed. It is an intentional and strategic plan designed to break the once most powerful nation on earth in order to bring in a World Socialist Government and one world currency. If you have any doubt about this fact, look at the CIA chart which shows the U.S. at the bottom of 191 nations with a negative $561 billion account balance. There is no way that this happens by accident, it is clearly a planned event.

The invisible government or the elite who control this world have decided to kill the dollar and kill the U.S. They planned this over 100 years ago and wrote about it openly. This did not happen overnight, it happened over decades. Rockefeller, the Trilateral Commission and the international bankers behind the Federal Reserve deliberately moved manufacturing out of the U.S. and into Communist China. They planned for China to become the world’s number one economic super power in the next few years.http://www.paulmcguire.o rg/?p=979

None of this was hidden from the American people! It was done out in the open. My question to you is,“How is it that the great evangelists and ministers were completely silent about it?” I can think of one Christian, that many of you idolize and who played golf with all of the Presidents. Yet, he never warned you or your family about what was coming. Why?

The ramifications about the numbers in the CIA chart are enormous. We have been infiltrated and taken over. However, there is much more to come, which I detail in my new 3 DVD Set “The Coming One World Government?” which is soon to be released.

The time has come for the Remnant Church to cry out to God and engage in spiritual warfare. Behind these economic figures is an intense spiritual battle that can be won in the heavenlies because all things are possible with God!

Perhaps you were not responsible for what happened in the past. But you are responsible for how you will deal with this crisis in relationship to the living God. Like it or not, this is what has been handed to us. But there is a way out! It is not an easy way, but God in His mercy has given us His supernatural and abundant resources to deal with the problem. This is our Goliath! This is our Red Sea! In the power of the Holy Spirit we must rise to the challenge and have absolute faith in God’s power to deliver.

We are moving forward to do just that in obedience to the Lord and we are calling on Watchman Prayer Warriors to engage with us in high-level spiritual warfare with overwhelming force. I will not play church, not now or ever! Nor will I surrender to stupidity and fanaticism. I have the call of God upon my life for this hour, and for this hour I was called before the foundation of the world.

You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. We need you to partner with us in prayer and in financial giving. We are responsible for what God has given us. If you are giving and serving in a church that is dining and dancing while the Titanic is sinking, than you have no right to complain as the ship sinks.

God is calling His people. He is calling you. We are going to have to make some radical changes. If you stay in your comfort zone, you and your loved ones are going to perish. Read the statistics in the CIA chart very carefully and make sure you understand its full implications.

However, there is hope and a promise for all those that respond to the call of God and obey Him when He gives instructions. The situation is not impossible. The time has come to grow up and own our time. A Third Great Awakening, an authentic and Biblical last day’s revival and a massive soul harvest are all on the table. But you are going to have to make some radical changes. If you are playing church and in fellowship with those that do, you are dancing before the Golden Calf and judgment begins in the house of the Lord. If you are listening to false prophets you must forsake them.

Now is the time, and in the power of the Holy Spirit we must seize it. We must rise to our destiny and take back what was stolen from us.

According to the CIA World Factbook, America sits at the bottom of 191 nations, with a listed account balance of an astonishing negative $561 billion.

&#8232;As a side note, it’s interesting to note the massive disparity between Spain, who sits in 190th place, and the US, in 191st place.$66 billion compared to $561 Billion. That’s 8.5x as much!

Funny, the article from which Flacktard's claim is taken actually said "could lose" not "will lose" ( This is what happens when things get filtered through Fox & the right whiner web sites).
Here is an opposing view.
Ignored is the grandfather clause. "Under the “grandfather clause,” a plan issued before the ACA was signed in 2010 could remain in place as long as employers or insurance companies didn’t drastically change its terms in a way that would harm the policy holder, like increasing out-of-pocket costs or dropping benefits. However, if a plan did change, it would lose its “grandfather status.” Then, any new plan issued in its place would be subject to Obamacare’s various requirements."
Most employer plans are designed for a population of employees that cross the spectrum. Most already include the majority of requirements & my need to make small changes. Just like policies have been doing for the past decade or so.

The Planned Destruction of the United States and Nation State

By Paul McGuire

The goal has always been, and is, a one world economic system, a cashless society and one world government! You are seeing the emergence of the "Fourth Beast" and the revived Roman Empire spoken of by Daniel. The G20 wants the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to be an international federal reserve, that is the purpose of the global economic crisis. An "Amero" dollar? A Terra? The goal is a global currency! But God is raising up a spiritual revolution! God is going to supple the needs of His people who are laboring in the final harvest and He wants you to be prepared in practical ways!

The goal is for the G20 to transform the International Monetary Fund (IMF) into a global Federal Reserve System. It is the Federal Reserve System which has controlled the U.S. money supply since 1914. The Federal Reserve System has nothing to do with the “Federal” government. It is a secretive and private corporation owned by international banking interests who control our political system, economy and money. In short, since 1914 the U.S. Government ended being a government run by “we the people” and has been under the control of international bankers. The Council on Foreign Relations is run by the same people who run the Federal Reserve. Here we have two of the most powerful groups in America and the world and there is almost a complete media black-out on them. The average American knows nothing about them except disinformation. Anyone who brings up the “elephants in the living room” is marginalized and demonized. Both political parties are controlled by these groups and their agenda has been a one world economic system and a one world government for a long time. Although, they do not realize it they are a fulfillment of the ancient prophecies of Daniel when he predicted a Revived Roman Empire and the “Fourth Beast.”

We are moving quickly to Revelation Chapter 13 which talks of a global government and a one world economic system along with a “mark of the beast.” The majority of the Church in America and around the world in Western nations is the Laodecian Church which had lost its spiritual vision. The root cause for this is that especially the Church in America has been seduced into substituting the philosophies of men for the Word of God. We are far deeper into the great apostasy that the Apostle Paul warned us about in II Thessalonians than most people realize. False teachers and false prophets abound in our time, except they do not wear signs which say “false teacher” on them.

* Obama hammers Bush's "disastrous" economic policies
By Ross Colvin

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug 9 (Reuters)- President Barack Obama attacked the economic policies of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush in Bush's home state on Monday as evidence of the way Republicans would operate if given power in Nov. 2 U.S. congressional elections.

At a fund-raising event for Democrats in Dallas, where Bush now lives, Obama said the former president's "disastrous" policies had driven the U.S. economy into the ground and turned budget surpluses into deficits.

Obama defended his repeated references to Bush's policies, saying they were necessary to remind Americans of the weak economy he inherited from Bush in January 2009."

"The policies that crashed the economy, that undercut the middle class, that mortgaged our future, do we really want to go back to that, or do we keep moving our country forward?" Obama said at another fund-raising event in Austin, referring to Bush's eight years as president."

And then Obammy brought prosperity to the US, not seen since it was rescued from Jimmy Carter.

Oh wait, he didn't.
