Obama Worships at the First Church of Eighteen Holes

When he’s not mocking Americans for being Bible-toting, bitter gun-clingers, every chance he gets Barack Obama loves to throw Bible verses around. The problem is that the verses he quotes are usually out of context, woefully misinterpreted, cherry-picked and distorted to support a socialist worldview, and occasionally completely made-up.

Listening to the president play the reverend on more than one occasion would lead one to believe Jesus Christ was a Marxist whose only objective was to further Obama’s Gospel of Collectivism.

Moreover, for the Scripture enthusiast the president portrays himself to be, it’s amazing how he manages to avoid the more difficult sayings that address the concepts and commands he’d rather ignore. For instance, based on the verses he omits from his repertoire it’s obvious that Obama isn’t at all convinced by God’s commands concerning fornication, the sanctity of life, honesty, duplicity or homosexuality.

During Obama’s first term, former Obama spiritual advisor Joshua DuBois led the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships. On a daily basis, Joshua sent Obama inspirational verses on his Blackberry. In 2013, the former pastor turned consultant said that the “biggest untold story is that [Obama] is a president of deep and abiding faith who values his walk with Christ and uses that walk to motivate the work that he does in the world.”

If that’s true, then while professing his “deep and abiding faith” Obama has had to find a way to justify calling himself a Christian while supporting the unrestricted slaughter of over three thousand unborn babies a day, not to mention demeaning God-ordained marriage between one man and one woman.

In other words, according to DuBois, when he’s not out shilling for Planned Parenthood or hosting LGBT banquets at the White House, Barack Obama values his walk with his imaginary morally-relativistic Jesus in a way that doesn’t contradict his anti-Scriptural social policy stance.

For example, even though Hebrews 10:25 clearly instructs Christians not to forsake assembling with other believers, DuBois, also known as the “Pastor-in-Chief,” recently explained why the pious one never misses a golf game or foregoes a vacation and has golfed 208 times in office and counting, but has only managed to drag himself to church 18 times, including just one Christmas.

According to Joshua, Obama’s absence from church is actually self-sacrificial, because although the president desires to worship in the house of the Lord every Sunday just as he did when he attended Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation Theology-based church in Chicago, Obama’s utmost concern is to avoid distracting other churchgoers from celebrating the Lord.

DuBois didn’t elaborate, but it sure sounds as though Obama, unlike other churchgoing presidents, is of the belief that if Barack is in the house, not even God Almighty can compete for the undivided attention of the flock.
According to DuBois, when Obama does decide to grace a church service with his presence, “When folks see the line forming outside, a lot of folks who don’t attend that congregation go in. It displaces a lot of people who are members of that church or at least interrupts them.”

If it’s true that the president only misses church to avoid distracting the congregation, that must mean that unless the adoration is taking place at INVESCO Field, President Obama is uncomfortable with people worshiping him.

Moreover, while Obama being thoughtful is a wonderful excuse for not going to church, one can’t help but wonder why churchgoers get more respect than non-churchgoing Americans. After all, Obama virtually shuts down entire cities to attend fundraisers all the time, doesn’t he?

Major metropolises from NYC to Minneapolis, Minnesota have all experienced major disruptions so that the president’s motorcade could deliver him to various locales to have dinner with his wife or to collect money to help fill the DNC’s coffers.

Over the last six years, Obama has subjected many more people than those who fill the pews in a small church to crippling gridlock as he scurried from fundraiser to fundraiser.

On a recent visit to “working mother” Gwyneth Paltrow’s Los Angeles home, while Gwynie, who was so taken by the president’s good looks she could barely speak, and as Obama, who’d rather not distract Sunday-go-to-meeting types, schmoozed and collected $32,400 a head from those gathered on the Goop Girl’s lawn, crying neighborhood children and frustrated mothers were left stranded on soccer fields and in restaurants.

And now, on Obama’s behalf, Joshua DuBois is attempting to paint the president’s 208 days worshiping in private at the First Church of Eighteen Holes as consideration for others?

Sorry, but Obama putting the needs of others ahead of his own is almost as believable as the president launching the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative while his actual brother George lives a slum dog existence in Nairobi.

Once again, Joshua DuBois’ churchgoing excuse is just another fake attempt at godliness to excuse godlessness. Above all, it certainly explains why, out of the approximately 312 Sundays Obama has lived up the street from St. John’s Episcopal, he and his family have only managed to walk down the block 18 times.

Obama is Roosting America’s Chickens

hubris8Originally posted at American Thinker

In the words of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, “America’s chickens are coming home to roost” – but not for the reasons Wright was referring to.  Instead, these chickens are the result of Barack Obama’s policies, which are so detrimental to the health, safety, and wellbeing of the American people that now the most innocent and helpless among us are suffering the ramifications of a social experiment run amok.

It’s not bad enough that it’s only a matter of time before unknown numbers of people are murdered by a terrorist attack everyone agrees is inevitable.  Nor is it horrifying enough that ISIS has threatened to execute random attacks on innocent Americans and kill military personnel while they sleep in their beds.

Does the president even care that an illegal teenage assassin from a Mexican drug cartel is at large somewhere in America, and known murderers, sex offenders, and all-around bad guys are running loose in the streets of towns all along the border?

Guess not, because Obama remains unflinching in his determination to keep the border open.  With each passing day, in addition to violent gang members and criminals being waved through, individuals with very dangerous communicable diseases are strolling from Latin America directly into the border states.

As a result, it’s taken only a few short months for Obama’s chicken-roosting to take the form of thousands of defenseless American children being infected with pathogens shared by hosts who shouldn’t be in this country in the first place.

For starters, in 18-plus states, there are children infected with a respiratory virus that makes it hard to breathe.  Enterovirus DV-68, which is rare here but common in Latin America, is causing some children to turn blue, requiring hospitalization and intubation.

And still the border remains open.

Adding insult to injury, there is now a disturbing report out of the border state of Texas that more than 700 infants and 40 employees in El Paso’s Providence Memorial Hospital have been exposed to tuberculosis.  The culprit is an anonymous hospital employee, who was probably helping the American economy by doing jobs unemployed Americans would love to do.

That’s right – 700 infants swaddled in receiving blankets, lying in hospital bassinets, are the newest victims of an ideology-driven president who has placed the wants and desires of illegal invaders above the welfare of vulnerable newborn babies.

Hospital officials have not identified the female nursery worker who coughed and sneezed all over infants and hospital workers.  However, what they are saying is that the exposure took place over the course of one year, and that those exposed to an infection that is often resistant to antibiotics were identified via employment and medical records.

Carrie Williams, spokeswoman for the Texas Department of State Health service, warned that “[t]his is an incredibly large exposure investigation, and it involves infants, so it is particularly sensitive.”  Carrie did admit that “[b]abies are more likely than older children and adults to develop life-threatening forms of TB.”

According to the health authority for El Paso County, Dr. Hector Ocaranza, while sick “unaccompanied minors” and individuals with MDR-TB, malaria, swine flu, and very possibly Ebola continue to stream into our nation, officials are awaiting results from the tests Providence Memorial hospital workers took to determine who contracted an illness that can be fatal if not treated.

The parents of the newborns who were exposed to TB have been directed by health officials to have their children screened, which is something many “unaccompanied minors” from Latin America didn’t have to submit to before being relocated all over the United States by an illegal immigrant-friendly Obama administration.

Downplaying the gravity of needlessly exposing 740 innocent people to a dangerous bacterial lung infection that can lie dormant for years, Barack Obama water carrier Hector Ocaranza reassured the concerned public that despite the president’s careless disregard for the security of the American people, TB, just like Enterovirus 68, although dangerous, is treatable and does not represent a threat to public health.

If that’s true, Dr. Ocaranza, why did 740 people require testing?

Nonetheless, as we wait for the next infectious disease outbreak, random ISIS beheadings, or, worse still, a small nuke in a major American city, America continues to be inundated with large numbers of psychopaths and pathogens, all of which are actively assisting in Obama’s roosting of America’s chickens.

Chicago Children Inform Barack Obama ‘We Want to Live!’

It was the South Side of Chicago — city of meat slicing machine mishaps, 9½-fingered mayors like Rahm Emanuel and childhood home to Michelle “Hadiya Pendleton was me and I was her” Obama.

The Chicago children were given a lesson plan that is sure to add even more drama to Barack Obama’s ongoing effort to wrest legal firearms out of the hands of law-abiding American citizens.

At Freedom Schools National Day of Social Action hosted by Trinity United Church of Christ, the church that Obama’s former minister Jeremiah “America’s Chickens are Coming Home to Roost” Wright once headed, Chicago children spent the day telling personal gut-wrenching death and destruction stories.

In a city where gun laws are strict and gun-related deaths are at unprecedented levels, dead cousins and aunts were mourned and heartbreaking tales of woe told.

The program coordinator, Minister Jasmine Taylor, maintained that dragging out vulnerable children whose lives were touched by gun violence to assist liberal politicians in furthering progressive policies, in the end, helps children heal.

Minister Jasmine shared:

“I think they’re able to connect better when they’re in a group of their peers, learning and talking about the things they’ve had go on in their families and their experiences.”

And if at some point these stories can be woven into an anti-Second Amendment speech delivered by a quivering-lipped Barack or Michelle Obama, all the better.

The day of social action was chock full of anti-gun-related activities.  The children were read poetry, and then were given a drum demonstration, which was an odd choice.  Wouldn’t a piccolo concert have been better than subjecting already-spooked children to a rat-a-tat-tat that sounds a lot like the pop of a gun?

Then, although purely as a cathartic experience, in the style of the children who wrote to the president about gun violence and then attended the signing of 23 executive actions establishing stricter gun control, these children also gave Obama additional fodder for… er, I mean, explained to the Protector of [only] Wanted Children their desire to live.

As an aside, it’s too bad unborn babies can’t write similar letters to Obama expressing their desire to live.

Nonetheless, looking to President Obama to ensure that they do get to live, the children expressed future hopes and dreams, if, and only if, Barack Obama does allow them to live.

Some of those dreams include becoming a doctor (shackled like a slave to the Obamacare system), a police officer (castrated by the DOJ), the President (if, that is, by the time they grow up Obama has lifted Martial Law and finally left office), a princess (like Michelle Obama), and a man of God (like Liberation Theologist/anti-Semite/America-hating racist, the ex-reverend Jeremiah Wright).

So America now has something to look forward to.

In the future, sure to be woven into the next anti-gun speech, will be excerpts from letters written by Chicago children to the President of the United States demanding that elected officials “protect children” (who could have been, but miraculously were not aborted), “not guns,” nor the Second Amendment.

Paving over History

obama-reaganOriginally posted at American Thinker blog

In 1970, Joni Mitchell’s song Big Yellow Taxi was a huge hit. Forty-two years later, it is rumored that the University of Chicago wants to raze Ronald Reagan’s childhood home to clear the way for Obama’s future presidential library, which brings to mind the lyrics “[t]hey paved paradise and put up a parking lot.”

Although Chicago isn’t planning on putting up a “pink hotel, a boutique and a swinging hot spot,” they might as well be. Why? Because next to Ronald Reagan’s quality of character, political philosophy, and love for America, Barack Obama is a chintzy imitation.

The controversy over the location of the future archive started when Michelle Obama’s former employer, the University of Chicago Medical Center, disclosed potential plans to turn Ronald Reagan’s childhood home in Chicago into a parking lot for President Barack Obama’s Presidential Library.  That was when it became clear that liberals will not rest until every vestige of conservatism is purged both figuratively and literally from the national consciousness and progressivism is all that remains.

By honoring Obama at Reagan’s expense, the President and his minions would be acting just like the victorious Islamic conquerors who once built mosques over sacred sites.  Think about it – as liberals endeavor to subjugate conservatism, what better way to send a message of conquest than erecting a monument to Obama over the boyhood home of Ronald Reagan?

Chicago was chosen over Honolulu, Hawaii as the site for the library, which it is estimated may end up costing more than $500 million before it’s complete.  The Hyde Park district, home of Obama prior to moving to Washington D.C., and now the site for his presidential library, is but a stone’s throw away from where Obama began his sharpening his community-organizing skills.

Not only that, but besides starting his political career in Chicago, the President also attended Jeremiah Wright’s anti-Semitic church in Chicago, hung around with Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn in Chicago, and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago – a subject he has proven to be vastly unqualified to teach.

Nevertheless, in anticipation of Barack Obama’s reelection, the Commission on Chicago Landmarks denied Reagan’s boyhood home landmark status in 2012 because it was deemed “not architecturally significant and the nation’s 40th president did nothing notable while living there.”

Sorry, but someone should inform the Commission on Chicago Landmarks that whatever Ronald Reagan did at four years of age is likely a lot more notable than anything 50-year-old Barack Obama has done as the 44th president.

But the worst of it isn’t so much talk of Reagan’s home being torn down to make way for Obama’s library. What is unconscionable is the plan to pave over the place where little Ronnie lived and played.  Furthermore, placing a “Historic Landmark” plaque in a parking lot demeans the memory of a great president and sends a message to America that accommodating school buses takes precedence over preserving a valued piece of history.

Moreover, leveling a historic site connected to America’s most beloved conservative icon would send a strong message of triumph for Progressivism and indicate a disrespectful dismissal of Conservatism.  But then again, Obama’s dog-eat-dog Chicago attitude may be why the dog-eating President would allow his surrogates to assist him in using Reagan’s former home as a fire hydrant that he can lift his leg on to send a message to Traditional America.

Four years ago, Chicago came to Washington D.C. and with it came Al Capone-style politics – political elitism, a persistent watering-down of the U.S. Constitution, deprivation of religious liberty, endorsement of collectivism in place of individualism, scorn for success, antipathy toward the military, and an elevation of government to a position of all-encompassing authority and provider.  All those things, and more, are the antithesis of everything President Ronald Wilson Reagan stood for.

So, as time marches on it seems inevitable that the memory of Ronald Reagan’s inspiring words are sure to be drowned out by the sound of bulldozers, wrecking balls, and jackhammers as the future/final home of Barack Obama’s Teleprompter is constructed. Meanwhile, for Baby Boomers who understand the travesty of liberals destroying history in order to manipulate it, the lyrics “Don’t it always seem to go, that you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone,” have taken on a whole new meaning.

Look who else is under the bus – American Thinker – May 19, 2010

Originally posted at American Thinker Blog

Jeremiah Wright made a career of throwing America under the bus. Now in an ironic twist of fate, Reverend Wright has been flung under the wheels of the jitney and flattened by none other than Barack Obama. The pastor emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ is not only “toxic,” but considered “radioactive” by spiritual son, Barack Obama.

Desiring to climb to the pinnacle of the Windy City’s political machine Barry Soetero was drawn toward Jeremiah Wright’s congregation and its politically connected pastor.  Barry and Michelle were married by Wright and both Sasha and Malia were baptized by the notorious preacher.

Barack willingly sat under Wright’s ministry for 20 years. In other words, Obama advanced politically in Southside Chicago by boarding the controversial Jeremiah Wright gospel bus and rode that bus all the way to the nomination for President of the United States.

It’s undeniable, Barack Obama used Reverend Wright.  Yet Wright, who had no problem exploiting the pulpit to deride America, promote anti-Semitism and misconstrue Scripture to further a racist agenda, seems to resent being exploited himself.

During the campaign, Senator Obama severed the relationship with Jeremiah Wright claiming to be unaware of “incendiary remarks” the reverend had been making for the two decades the Obama’s tithed to Wright’s church.  Either Obama attended or didn’t attend Trinity United Church of Christ, heard the sermons or didn’t hear the sermons, but true to form, Obama wanted it both ways.

Political expediency originally drew Barack to Wright’s congregation and political expediency was the impetus for Barack to hurl Reverend Wright under the bus.

Tire tracks soiling his Africana vestments, and two years after the split began, Wright wrote the president of Africa 6000 International saying,

No one in the Obama administration will respond to me, listen to me, talk to me or read anything that I write to them. I am ‘toxic’ in terms of the Obama administration.I am ‘radioactive,’ Sir. When Obama threw me under the bus, he threw me under the bus literally! Any advice that I offer is going to be taken as something to be avoided. Please understand that!

Those whiny words were written by Reverend Wright to Joseph Prischak, president of Africa 6000 International in response to Prischak’s requesting Wright help petition funds to assist earthquake ravaged Haiti. Subsequently Wright agreed to write a letter to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on behalf of Africa 6000 to try to get “access to millions of dollars in interest held in an overseas account.”

Jeremiah Wright spent years building a ministry based on “divisive and destructive” language and Obama enthusiastically occupied a pew weekly absorbing the preacher’s disparaging diatribes.  As a result, feeling that an association with Wright jeopardized his political career; Obama did not hesitate to label the former pastor both, “divisive and destructive.”

Obama rode along for years while Wright threw America under the bus, Sunday after seditious Sunday. Faithful congregant Barack Obama learned well if the United States of America can be thrown under the bus, why not toss a toxic hot potato under there too if need be?

Now Jeremiah Wright finds himself relegated to a lowly position, under the wheels of the bus, right alongside the nation the pastor taught Barry to despise.

Hey Reverend, how does it feel?

State of the Union Smoking Seminar

Watching Barack Obama’s first State of the Union address was like attending an anti-smoking seminar led by a spokesperson that takes intermittent smoke breaks. Obama chided, corrected and set out moral commands—none of which the President adheres to himself.

If followed in logical succession, the contradictions embodied in the State of Union were nothing less than stunning.  Obama treated America to seventy-one minutes of lies, half-truths, poor policy proposals and revisionist history, all things the nation has come to expect from our historic president.  Even more astonishing then the job bill, student loan and “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” propositions was the President’s incongruous statements addressing political etiquette.

Woven throughout his misleading and deluded statements Obama graduated to unprecedented heights of insincerity.   For all intents and purposes, Obama set about collecting Newports and Virginia Slims in the chamber and then left the emergency exit open where those who hesitantly relinquished cigarettes witnessed Barry toking filterless Camels.

Take for instance the absurdity of Obama calling on George W. Bush to assist the Haiti Relief Fund. In the Rose Garden and in a show of solidarity Obama portrayed a united front with his predecessor.  Yet, at the State of the Union, Obama lit up under the No Smoking sign and dragged out ole’ Georgie to serve as fall guy for year of presidential inadequacy.

In one breath, Obama appointed Bush half a presidential team to oversee Haiti relief. In the next breath, Barack depicted Bush as an inept “torturer” devoid of values, solely responsible for “… two wars, an economy rocked by a severe recession, a financial system on the verge of collapse and a government deeply in debt.”

Either Obama doesn’t recall what he says and does, or the President believes Americans lack the ability to draw a parallel between words and actions.

America should be reminded that Reverend Jeremiah Wright, an anti-Semite, racist preacher of the “Gospel” mentored Barack Obama. Barry spent twenty years at Oxymoronic University sitting under the tutelage of Right Reverend Wrong.  In the State of the Union homily Reverend Obama lectured on “peace and harmony,” then undermined the concepts in classic Trinity United Church of Christ-style.

Obama took repeated swats at Bush, the Senate, the Supreme Court and even members of Congress and then segwayed directly into chiding those who received presidential reproofs on how politicians should treat one and other.  Sorry, but one remark juxtaposed against the other reveals Obama’s state of mind borders on psychotic. Doesn’t Obama know that when teaching smoking cessation, you need to remove the nicotine patch before going out back to sneak in a couple of butts?  Overdosing on carcinogens has been proven to affect clear thinking.

For a decision upholding 1st amendment rights, the supposed Constitutional scholar openly chastised Supreme Court judges like unruly kindergarteners. Immediately following, the President steered the conversation toward righteous moralization. Barack subjected ensnared judges to “winner” statements like,  “We can’t wage a perpetual campaign where the only goal is to see who can get the most embarrassing headlines about the other side – a belief that if you lose, I win.”

“In the double bind there are two conflicting levels of communication and an injunction against commenting on the conflict.” Obama’s erratic statements are on par with a parent sending conflicting messages to schizophrenic offspring.

At the State of the Union, Obama repeatedly dragged out a bloody G.W. from behind the podium depicting Bush as irresponsible, thoughtless and negligent.  Obama strongly suggested America’s financial battle had its genesis in Bush’s, “recklessness that nearly brought down our entire economy.” Then, Obama followed up his critical statements with petitions for political unity,

Washington may think that saying anything about the other side, no matter how false, no matter how malicious, is just part of the game.  But it’s precisely such politics that has stopped either party from helping the American people.  Worse yet, it’s sowing further division among our citizens, further distrust in our government.

In the address Barack Obama also hinted at Bush’s indecency and weakness saying, “In this new decade, it’s time the American people get a government that matches their decency; that embodies their strength.” Obama implied Bush’s administration was both secretive and unaccountable saying, “…when we took that program [financial rescue program] over we made it more transparent and more accountable.” Can anyone say C-Span?

After mortifying Bush, and less than twenty-minutes later, Obama vowed to “start anew, to carry the dream forward, and to strengthen our union once more.”

Obama did not leave out of the tirade self-rewarding CEO’s, or bankers risking America’s future for what the pious president defines as “selfish gain.”  The president included lobbyists “gaming the system” and politicians, other than himself, who “tear each other down instead of lifting this country up.”

The “working to change the tone of politics” President shared that “Just saying no to everything may be good short-term politics, but it’s not leadership.  We were sent here to serve our citizens, not our ambitions.” [Ahem]. After rebuking the crowd, Obama urged the same lousy, self-serving, ruthless politicians to work with him to “show the American people that we can do it together.”

Obama spoke to “smokers” at the seminar and then borrowed a lighter, excusing himself from kicking a habit he refuses to shake. The truest statement Obama made, while fostering a State of Disunion was, “I don’t quit!”   America is choking because every time Obama speaks a duplicitous scolding follows, then the President inhales deeply and blows second-hand smoke straight into the nations’s face.

The sanctimonious spreader of “quit-it,” refuses to do what he demands from everyone else. Hey Barry, “No wonder there’s so much cynicism out there. No wonder there’s so much disappointment.”
