Obama and False Dreams

29 Feb

Obama selling false hope and false dreams

Felicia Benamon
February 22, 2008

It used to be that the average American voter had a pretty good head on their shoulders. Not so much anymore. Too many Americans are allowing the likes of Barack Obama to sway them into thinking that they will be rescued from their current situation should he win the presidency. They cannot see through the hype.Has anyone bothered to take a look at what Obama stands for? What are his real views and plans for America?

It has been disclosed that Barack Obama is sponsoring a bill in the Senate called the Global Poverty Act, (S. 2433) that would cost the US billions. Think more and more taxes, courtesy of the US taxpayers to help the world! The UN would have a say in how US tax dollars are spent. Cliff Kincaid of AIM.org writes:
“The legislation would commit the U.S. to spending 0.7 percent of gross national product on foreign aid, which amounts to a phenomenal 13-year total of $845 billion over and above what the U.S. already spends.”

The US has been and is involved with helping nations around the world. We give the most aid and manpower (troops and civilian aid) to causes than any other country in the world. I’ve said it before; anything with the word “global” attached to it, beware! This bill will overextend the US and the UN will have greater control over what the US does. Sickening thought! The US is sovereign!

There are people RIGHT HERE in our own nation who are struggling in the downturn of the economy and people have lost jobs. Mr. Obama, why don’t you try telling taxpayers that you plan on using their money to care for the rest of the world when the taxpayers are struggling themselves?!

I have to question where Obama is really willing to take the US. Does he realize we must start RIGHT HERE in America to fix the many problems on our table? America should not strain and stretch itself to make sure the world has what it needs. With the value of the dollar below the Euro, and even Canada’s Dollar, the US is in need of a strong leader who will place the US first and foremost above all other worldly concerns. The welfare of other nations comes last at this point and time.

Where is Barack Obama’s loyalty to this country, a wonderful American nation? Is his loyalty more towards Africa? That seems to be the case as the church Obama attends claims loyalty to the “mother continent,” Africa. The congregation of Trinity United Church of Christ claims to be “an African people” who are “true to their native land.” At the church, heavy emphasis is placed on African studies.

More on Trinity United Church of Christ: http://www.tucc.org/about.htm

Will Africa take precedence over America should Barack Obama become president? Barack Obama has been shown standing with his hands resting in front of him instead of over his heart as the National Anthem played. Now surfaces the questionable statement by his wife stating how proud she is of this nation for the first time:

“For the first time in my adult lifetime I am really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but I think people are hungry for change.” — Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama’s attitude of being proud of America in terms of her husband having “done well” and that folks want “change” is disturbing. She didn’t mention the greatness of America in the context of all the US has done for the world and for mankind. To me, it was a selfish remark. Barack and Michelle Obama do NOT represent me, nor any other American who wants to make sure that his/her country, stays intact. Perhaps Barack and Michelle Obama would like to indulge a bit more in American studies…to really get a sense of how great this nation has become despite our current challenges. The two of them want change alright, but change not necessarily for the better.

Yet still, crowds fall apart, people reduced to tears at Obama’s rallies. No doubt there are some who profess to be Christians who are part of those crowds. They are getting sucked into Obama’s talk of “hope.” No politician can heal your wounds; no politician can offer you “hope.” WAKE UP!! Only Jesus Christ can offer hope in this dismal world!

How has this nation gotten so far off the beaten path? We used to employ common sense and good sound judgment. Now we are running headstrong over someone who is full of fancy talk, but offers nothing containing substance.

And yes, scrutinizing politicians and combing over their record is something a voter should consider doing. The candidates running for president are within a hair of leading this nation, and as one can see from Barack Obama’s stealth plans for another tax on Americans, we’d BETTER make sure that we send the right people to do the job.

    The more I read on Senator Obama, the more reservations I have. He says things that have Socialist undertones; many of his close associations are racist, corrupt, and anti-American; his foreign policy re discussions with leaders of rogue nations is undermining to America; his campaign is controlling the mass media; the integrity of Delegate and Super Delegate allocation has been seriously compromised against the voters’ decisions; and his following expresses scary threats whenever constructively criticized. What does all this add up to – choose your dictatorship regime. I am actually frightened for our country.

    When you spout off like this, just remember Jesus was a liberal. Do you realize how much better off even the poorest Americans are compared to most of the world?
    Jesus would be absolutely disgusted to hear “The welfare of other nations comes last at this point and time.”

    Besides, most economists are endorsing Obama’s fiscal policies over McCain. We need someone who’ll invest in our infrastructure and create energy jobs, not overextend our military even more.

    Furthermore, this is a rather fatalist view:
    “No politician can heal your wounds; no politician can offer you “hope.” WAKE UP!! Only Jesus Christ can offer hope in this dismal world!”

    This may be true of spiritual wounds, but we’re talking about hope in terms of tangibles like the integrity of government, improving our economy, renewed respect for the US. There’s a big distinction between what we pray for and what we have to roll up our sleeves and work for, and Obama offers the latter.

     
  5. Obama a serious mistake for U.S.

    Quote of the Year From The Audacity Of Hope… I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. Senator Barack Hussein Obama
    Quote of the Month: “My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.” – Senator Barack Hussein Obama

    Reason Obama said he wanted to be President of ALL 57 states. Keep in mind U.S. doesn’t have 57, but…ISLAM is what he is talking about!
    Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) is an international organization grouping 57 states which have decided to pool their resources together, combine their efforts, and speak with one voice to safeguard the interests and secure the progress and well-being of their peoples and of all Muslims in the world.

    President Obama A Victory For Islam

    If Barack Obama Enters The White House, Islam Will Have Conquered The Heart Of American Civilization.

    Said; IsraCast, Menashe Amir an Israeli expert on Iran

    How does Iran view the possibility that Barack Hussein Obama, a former Muslim, might win the U.S. presidential election? Menashe Amir, an Israeli expert on Iran, says not only Iran but also the rest of the Muslim world, will view it as victory for Islam. In an interview with IsraCast, Menashe Amir quoted an important Iranian personality who declared: “If Obama enters the White House, Islam will have conquered the heart of American society!” However, President Ahmadinejad has said that he did not believe the U.S establishment would let Obama win. If Barack Hussein Obama wins the U.S. presidential election, Muslims will view it as a victory and forget that he converted from Islam to Christianity” – that’s the view of Israeli analyst Menashe Amir. In fact one leading Iranian personality recently said: “If Obama enters the White House, Islam will have conquered the heart of American society.

    BOYCOTT CNN & MSNBC for manipulating the Presidential election with the biased pushing of obama before researching.

    Terrorist Group Hamas Wants Obama As President this post:
    http://blogsforjohnmccain.com/trackback/975

    VOTERS DEMAND Obamas tell America about their relationship with Ayers, Gadaffi Syrian tycoon, Antoin Rezko, Saudi Arabian Scheiks and Nadhami Auchi, Iraqi billionaire, global arms dealer who was best friends with Saddam Hussein, and the main financial backer for Saddam’s Iraqi -Saudi oil pipeline, and stood trial with Saddam Hussein for conspiring to assassinate Iraqi President Qasim. VOTERS are concerned why CNN & MSNBC refuse to question those relationships, coupled with Obama’s 20 plus yrs with Rev. Wright shows a serious pattern, which Obama seems quite comfortable with people who really, really, really HATE U.S of America. If you question him or his values or policies, you’re part of the “divisive, distracting” practices voters associate with Washington. Them’s the Obama Rules.

  6. Obama a serious mistake for U.S.

    FACT: CLINTON WINS THE STATES THAT MATTER IN GENERAL ELECTION.
    DONATE: hillaryclinton.com
    In Kentucky, 8 in 10 Clinton voters… say they’d be Dissatisfied if Obama were the nominee; about 60% of Clinton voters in Oregon said the same. MORE Clinton voters in KY say they’d support John McCain than support Barack Obama. Obama lost West Virginia by more than 40 points, an enormous fall, voters who went against Obama — white, rural, older, low-income and without college degrees — don’t just live in West Virginia. They live everywhere in the country, in places Obama needs to win in a general election. Lost in all the talk of the inevitability of Barack Obama’s nomination is the fact that Hillary Clinton has a very compelling case of her own. The contorted Democratic primary significantly differs from an actual presidential election. Caucuses, which is proportionately favor young, vocal enthusiasts who are willing to stay up late in the night; superdelegates; unelected party officials who are free to ignore the
    will of the people and proportional representation of delegates are all electoral processes that have no parallel in November.

    If the Democratic primary were a winner-take-all contest based on electoral votes like the general election, Clinton would lead Obama 290-214. The fact that Obama has won the majority of states, most of which are small, or has a slight lead in the popular vote does not mitigate the fact that Clinton is by a large margin the more competitive candidate in a national election

    It is a fact that no Democrat has won the White House since 1916 without winning West Virginia, Obama lost West Virginia by more than 40 points, an enormous fall, voters who went against Obama — white, rural, older, low-income and without college degrees — don’t just live in West Virginia. They live everywhere in the country, in places Obama needs to win in a general election. In anticipation of the West Virginia primary, college students for Obama were hurling insults at farmers and truck drivers. Now we hear pained remarks from the Obama camp that many white men won’t vote for any black. Oh really? No one was complaining during the early races in Iowa, Maryland, Virginia and Wisconsin, when most of the white male participants backed Obama. That was before the Rev. Jeremiah Wright ugliness became public. Obama’s inability to persuade working-class white voters to back him points to serious problem for him in the presidential election. A large percentage of voters who backed Mrs Clinton said they would not vote for Obama in the presidential race if he becomes the nominee. Disrespecting the nearly 17 million who have supported Clinton is politically unwise, but turning them into “the enemy” is insane

    Surely proved if Obama would become Democratic nominee he will certainly lose the general election: Obama’s camp philosophy of his cadre amount to one big put-down of America. President represents something very personal to Americans who proved they are not in the habit of electing candidates who hold their country in contempt. Not only have the comments of Obama’s wife, Michelle who referred to America as “downright mean” and stated that she was not proud of her country until her husband started winning primaries and his minister, Jeremiah Wright (whose hateful, anti-white, anti-American diatribes are available for sale in Obama’s church, or for free on YouTube) revealed the tired, leftist scorn for America that Obama represents and condones. Obamas own remarks have exposed this ugly, unelectable side. Obama attempted to explain his persistent deficit in Pennsylvania primary polls by describing small-town Americans as “bitter” people who “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.” This is hard stuff, and patronizing, besides. Add to this Obama’s characterizations of the “typical white person” describing his grandmother, whom he tossed under the campaign bus to create a false equivalence with Wright’s racism and one finds something far more damaging than a simple series of gaffes its a window into how the Obama sees his countrymen. Obama’s associations in addition to Anti- American Wright, speak to this unappealing point of view. William Ayers, a domestic terrorist enjoys a friendly relationship with the Obamas. Voters are learning ( with no help from media like CNN & MSNBC, Ayers bombed the Pentagon on May 19, 1972, and fondly recalls, “The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bast**ds were finally going to get what was coming to them.” Ayers and his accomplices also bombed the U.S. Capitol, the State Department, as well as banks, police stations and courthouses. Obama has defended Wright insisting that he merely represents the convention of “Black Liberation Theology,” as though this were just some quaint offshoot of traditional Christianity. One need not pore over the tenets of Black Liberation Theology or its founder, James Hal Cone — although a Google search of either would provide a world of clarity to the undecided voter to recognize that a would-be President who cannot utterly disassociate himself from such racist, anti-American rubbish lacks sufficient character and affinity for his country’s ideals to be its leader. Americans understand that their president’s instinct ought to be to defend the nation against unfair invective, not embrace those who purvey it or, in the case of Ayers, seek to blow it up altogether.

     
  7. MICHELLE OBAMA RAILING AGAINST WHITEY

    MICHELLE OBAMA RAILING AGAINST WHITEY

    Republicans October Surprise on Obamas. video of Michelle Obama railing against whitey in Rev. Jeremiah Wrights church. http://noquarterusa.net/blog/2008/05/16/will-barack-throw-mama-from-the-train/

    a video tape showing Michelle Obama, railing against whitey from the pulpit of racist, anti-US pastor Reverend Wrights church. Larry Johnson, a former Deputy Director in the US State Department.
    I now have it from four sources (three who are close to senior
    Republicans) that there is video dynamite–Michelle Obama railing against
    whitey at Jeremiah Wrights church. Republicans may have a lousy record when it comes to the economy and the management of the war in Iraq, but they are hell on wheels when it comes to opposition research. Someone took the chance and started reviewing the recordings from services at Jeremiah Wright’s United Church of Christ. Holy smoke!! I am told there is a clip that is being held for the fall to drop at the appropriate time. The last thing Barack and Michelle need is a new clip that raises further questions about her judgment and temperament.” when this clip is made public, Obama’s star will rise precipitously within leftist circles, but his hope of becoming the next president of the United States will be instantly destroyed.

    Perhaps it has something to do with Obama’s recent statement urging Republicans to “lay off” his wife, as if Michelle Obama’s behavior, provocative statements and high-profile stance during his campaign should somehow be immune from examination and criticism.
    Obama’s chief political adviser David Alexrod on National Public Radio claimed white working class Democrats barely exist and hardly matter, white working class has gone to the Republican nominee for many elections, This is not new, WE don’t need or rely solely on those votes.

    Obama lost West Virginia by more than 40 points, an enormous fall, voters who went against Obama — white, rural, older, low-income and without college degrees — don’t just live in West Virginia. They live everywhere in the country, places Obama needs to win in a general election. Now we hear pained remarks from the Obama camp that many white men won’t vote for any black. Oh really?
