George Washington, Obama and Divine Intervention

Written by :Gary Wonning

Over the course of my life I have come to understand more and more how much
George Washington, the principle force behind the founding of the United
States of America believed in divine intervention. I have heard and
read about the instances where he was shot at point blank range and
remained unharmed. In one particular battle, during the French and
Indian War, he sustained three bullet holes in his jacket and one in his
hat and suffered no wounds.

His  explanation could only be there was an intervention of a higher power
that saved him from harm,thus enabling him to continue to press on for
freedom and our way of life.Most if not all of  our founding fathers
professed a belief in a Divine Source or God. The Declaration of
Independence and our constitution also point to a belief in God, a
believe our laws come from God, not government. This was a new thought
at the time and a thought that many today still have a hard time
comprehending.

Too many people today are still looking for a savior, or someone to do
everything for them, thus relieving them of any responsibility for their
lives. It would be nice if it worked this way, but it doesn’t. Because
of the advances in our society over the last several years, and the
“free stuff” provided to us by either our employment or government, many
people have developed an entitlement mentality. They believe they are
entitled to everything and it is free.

Nothing could be further from the truth, nothing is free, someone has to pay
for whatever it is we have, either we or someone else has paid for it,
there are no free lunches. In today’s world , politicians get elected
based on how much free stuff they can give their constituents, while
soaking the taxpayer for the costs.

People only look at what they are getting, never realizing how much it costs,
or how much they themselves are paying for “pork” in another area of the
country , which they receive no benefit whatsoever. No time in history
has this been more obvious than in the 2008 election, class warfare
became the battle cry, a Robin Hood mentality arose with many thinking
the rich would and could pay for everything.

Nothing could be further from the truth, in  most cases, the wealthy have
worked hard and sacrificed much to obtain what they have, why should
they be taxed to death to give to someone who is unwilling to work and
sacrifice like they have? Would you want to do that?

The original idea of an income tax was sold through the concept that only
the rich would pay, how did that work out? We all pay, regardless of how
it is presented to us. Hopefully the election of 2008 has shown the
American people how bad things can get when everyone only votes for the
candidate that promises to give the most free stuff. 2008 isn’t the only
example of how the entitlement programs don’t work, but I believe it is
the most blatant example of how things can run amok.

Many tried to warn us of what was happening ,but few listened.People were so
enamored with electing a minority  and his promise of equality, that
his many questionable policies and personal relationships were grossly
overlooked. No one asked about his past associations for fear of
reprisal or being called a racist.

Hopefully enough people have learned a lesson, leaders should be elected on their
ability to lead, and not based on , race, religion, creed, or national
origin, they must and need to be natural born citizens, and a
requirement should also be that they grew up in the United States, so
they know what America is all about.

Both political parties are guilty, one more so than the other , but we need
to clean both houses to form a more perfect union. It almost seemed like
divine intervention the way the election process turned out.

.
Perhaps there was a little divine intervention,  so that we may learn
from our  actions of the last 50 years. Sometimes things have to get
really bad before they can get better. Hopefully we have reached a low
point, and citizens will start paying attention and electing leaders who
have some values and have the countries best interest at heart,  not
their own personal agenda.

Obama , His Jobs Speech

Obama is trying to play nice guy, acting as if he had no choice but to
schedule his repetitive jobs creation speech the same night as the
second Republican debate.

He knew exactly what House speaker Boehner
would do, as soon as Boehner said no, Obama can then turn around and be
Mr. Nice Guy  cooperating fully by changing to another night, thus
trying to make the GOP look like fools.

He thus has tried to create an atmosphere that shows he is cooperating
with the GOP and being a nice guy. Not a chance, he is just playing
politics . The only problem with the above mentioned scheme is he or his
staff then scheduled the speech during the first game of the pro
football season.  The only solution they could come up with is to have
the speech before the football game at 7PM. What a travesty, what Obama once hailed as a major policy speech has now been reduced to a pregame event that no one will watch.

Now he looks like a complete idiot,  people will forgive one supposed
scheduling snafu and many would over look the political connotations of
what he was trying to do, but two scheduling snafus only reaffirms what
more and more people are beginning to realize. His administration is the
most inept in recent history , they can’t even arrange a speech, how
can we expect them to solve our current financial problems or any of the
myriad of problems facing us as a nation?

Reverend Wright: President Barack Hussein Obama's Spiritual Adviser

Reverend Wright: Obama’s Spiritual adviser

Fox News

CHICAGO — He’s been keeping such a low profile since nearly derailing Barack Obama’s campaign for president in2008 — is it possible that the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright has mellowed?

Hardly.

During a five-day seminar Wright taught last week in Chicago, he was back at it, claiming that whites and Jews are controlling the flow of worldwide information and oppressing blacks in Israel and America .

“White folk done took this country,” Wright said. “You’re in their home, and they’re gonna let you know it.”

The course, advertised as focusing on politics and public policy in South Africa and America, was taught in a small,ground-floor room at the Chicago Theological Seminary, where Wright’s voice echoed out an open window. The class was composed of about 15 to 20 students, mainly older African-American women who would arrive early and giddily linger during lunch breaks and after class, looking for the reverend’s attention. (The course cost a little over $1,000 if taken for college credit and $300 if taken without.)

The absence of young people was telling: The lectures seemed ossified, relics of a pre-civil-rights America — a point that Obama himself made during his famous speech on race in March 2008, prompted by the incendiary comments (“God damn America!”) made by his former pastor and mentor.

“Not once in my conversations with him have I heard him talk about any ethnic group in derogatory terms, or treat whites with whom he interacted with anything but courtesy and respect,” Obama said.

Yet during this course — which was described as asking, “What is the response and public witness of persons of faith to ongoing developments in both countries?” — Wright made many statements about what he believes are the true aims of whites and Jews.

“You are not now, nor have you ever been, nor will you ever be a brother to white folk,” he said. “And if you do not realize that, you are in serious trouble.”

He cited the writings of Bill Jones-author of the book “Is God a White Racist?” — as proof that white people cannot be trusted. “Bill said, ‘They just killed four of their own at Kent State. They’ll step on you like a cockroach and keep on movin’, cause you not a brother to them.’ “

Wright referred to Italians as “Mamma Luigi” and “pizzeria.” He said the educational system in America is designed by whites to mis educate blacks “not by benign neglect but by malignant intent.”

He said Ethiopian Jews are despised by white Jews: “And now the Knesset [Israeli parliament] is meeting with European Jews, voting on whether or not these African Jews can get into [Israel].”

The civil-rights movement, Wright said,was never about racial equality: “It was always about becoming white . .. to master what [they] do.” Martin Luther King, he said, was misguided for advocating nonviolence among his people, “born in the oven of America.”

“We probably have more African-Americans who’ve been brainwashed than we have South Africans who’ve been brainwashed,” he said, and seemed to alluded to President Obama twice: “Unfortunately, I got in trouble with a fella for saying this . . . All your commentaries are written by oppressors.” At the mention of Nation of Islam head Louis Farankhan– whom Obama disavowed during the campaign — black leaders “go cuttin’ and duckin’,” he said.

In March, Wright told The Washington Post that he expects to speak to Obama again, when”he is out of the White House.” Last June, he told a Virginia newspaper that the only reason he and the president were not speaking at the moment is that “them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me.”

From 1972 until May 2008, Wright served as pastor of Trinity United Church of Chicago, located in a rough area of the city’s South Side.Today, he is “pastor emeritus” and identified as such on the rugs that line the doorways at Trinity.

Until very recently, Wright lived with his wife and children in a nearby two-story house, in a more affluent subdivision surrounded by roadblocks; the line between rich and poor is literal. His former neighbors all say he kept to himself.

A few months ago, Wright and his family moved into a brand-new million-dollar home located near a golf course and made of stone with a recessed doorway surrounded by pillars. It’s the only house on a cul-de-sac. Records show it was sold by Trinity United Church to a company called ATG Trust and paid for in cash.

Since leavingTrinity, Wright has traveled the country, preaching and lecturing. He said he’s been working “all year long” with Trinity’s preschool program and called US Education Secretary Arne Duncan a disaster. Duncan, a former college basketball star, was given the job only because Obama enjoys his “good jump shot in the backyard,” Wright said.

Wright gives interviews intermittently but declined to speak to The Post. He recently headlined a two-day “men’s empowerment revival” in Florida but in mixed company is careful not to say anything racist or inflammatory.

The most he had to say about the African-American experience that day was “God is working on your behalf.”

Birds of a feather flock together.

Most thinking people are dismayed that President Obama was reelected for a second term of office. Many are worried that America as we know it will be no longer, falling into socialism and become a welfare state. Many fear worse that we will fall to communism or Marxism.

The situation doesn’t look good; from all indications that is exactly where we are headed. But be not dismayed.

 

Obama and the Gulf Oil Spill

Obama and the gulf oil spill


Certainly BP shares a lot of the blame for this oil spill, however , BP submitted all it plans for deep water drilling to the government, the government had to sign off and approve. In essence, BP did exactly what the government wanted, and now that something went wrong , the government wants to place all the blame on BP, I don’t think so, there is plenty of blame to go around, it is just as much the governments fault as BP.

Now Brazil is spending billions to expand it’s deep water drilling capabilities, some of that money actually came from the United States and the Obama administration, our oil rigs are headed to Brazil. Guess who we are going to be getting our oil from?

This was posted on the Rush
Limbaugh web site yesterday.

The director of Homeland Security, Big Sis Janet
Napolitano has issued a statement.  Homeland Security secretary Janet
Napolitano, also known as Big Sis, issued a statement this morning
regarding America’s two most pressing issues:  the Gulf oil spill and
President Obama’s devotion to golf.  Secretary Napolitano, speaking to
labor leaders, declared that from this day forward no one in the Obama
administration or those seeking favors or mercy from the administration
shall use the phrase Gulf oil spill.  It will now be referred to as the
BP-caused disaster.  Official language requirements used inside the
administration from Janet Napolitano, no longer the Gulf oil spill, it
is the BP-caused disaster.  You think I’m kidding?  Along those same
lines, it can no longer be said by administration officials, the press
office, or the media that the president went to play golf.  The
president no longer plays golf.  The president is clearing his mind.  We
appreciate your cooperation.  We’ll take note of those that do not do
as instructed.  So it’s no longer the Gulf oil spill, it’s the BP-caused
disaster. He doesn’t play golf anymore, he clears his mind.

Obama must have a guilty conscience about spending so much time enjoying himself while the country burns.

Sounds to me like an order to do as we are told, don’t know about you, but I don’t take highly to orders concerning free speech from my government.

Obama:We shouldn't remain a super power

Obama thinks the United States shouldn’t remain a Superpower

The longer this man is president , the more I’m amazed and taken aback by some of the things he says and does.

Obama says we shouldn’t remain a super power, do we want some one else protecting us?  Who does he have in  mind, China, Venezuela, Ireland?
I don’t know about you, but I for one, don’t want some other nation protecting us, no one has the best interests of the Untied States more at heart than the people of the  United States. Many countries have and will continue to lend help when asked and needed, but no one country is large enough and powerful enough to provide security for the world, no one except for the United States . It is time to give up on the naive idea that the Arab world doesn’t want to control or harm us, they do.

I wish for once he would stand up for America, instead of venturing off on one his apology tours, tearing America down every chance he gets.

Obama needs to realize the main function of the federal government is to protect it’s citizens, that includes a strong military,it is time for him to start performing the functions the federal government was charged with, and turn control of the duties best left to the states and local governments back to the states and local governments.

His time would be better spent reducing the size of the federal deficit, finding ways to keep the finest health care system in the world privatized and shore up social security by investing the funds collected wisely.

Barack Hussein Obama's Life Story

Barack Obama’s Inspiring Life Story

August 4, 2009 – 23:26 ET

 

 

Today is a very special day: It’s President Obama’s birthday.

He turned 48 — only 16 more “czars” to appoint before his age equals total”czars.”

Here’s the One Thing: It’s been an amazing life for the 44th president. I, like the rest of America, am inspired by his story, so I’d like to share it with you.

The story of Barack Obama starts with his parents, Ann Dunham and Barack Obama, Sr. It began like any other classic American love story,when these two lovebirds met while taking a

Russian language class in1960 at the height of the Cold War. By 1961 they were married and later that year Barack Obama, Jr. was born.

 

President Obama so movingly told the story during a speech commemorating the anniversary of the civil rights march in Selma:

BARACK OBAMA: “But something stirred across the country because of what happened in Selma, Alabama… because some folks were willing to march across a bridge… so they got together and Barack Obama, Jr., was born….”

Wait, didn’t that march happen in 1965? Obama was born in 1961. I’m going to cut him some slack — it’s his birthday.

When little Barack, Jr., was 3-years-old (still one year shy of  the actual Selma march) his parents divorced. Dad moved to Kenya and mom married an Indonesian man. From ages six to 10, Barack Obama, Jr.,attended school in Jakarta.

At age 10, now living with his grandparents and back in Hawaii,young Barack yearned for a father figure. He eventually gravitated towards a family friend named Frank — also known as Frank Marshall Davis, would become his childhood mentor.

Frank just happened to be a communist. The good news is, mom already spoke Russian. No one knows for sure what mentor and pupil talked about, probably baseball or something else teenage boys enjoy. But definitely not communist propaganda.

Now 19, armed with a new world view and an eagerness to learn, Obama attended Columbia University. His mentor, Frank, would have been proud of how he made use of his time there:

BARACK OBAMA: Political discussions, the kind at Occidental had once seemed so intense and purposeful, came to take on the flavor of the socialist conference I sometimes attended at Cooper Union

And when he wasn’t attending socialist conferences, Obama stayed on campus and chose his friends carefully:

BARACK OBAMA: To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.

Once his “Marxist professor” friends completed his education, it  was on to the real world. In his mid-20s, Obama moved to Chicago and became a community organizer.

While he was organizing things there, many friends and friendships budded. He met like-minded people like William Ayers. Ayers was a member of the Weather Underground and participated in the bombing of the Pentagon in 1972 and other bombings of government buildings.

WILLIAM AYERS, FORMER WEATHER UNDERGROUND LEADER: I don’t regret anything I did to oppose the war. Anything I did to oppose the war. Don’t regret.

ALAN COLMES, HOST OF ‘THE ALAN COLMES SHOW’: You wouldn’t regret setting bomb at a police station or setting a bomb at the Pentagon or the capital?

AYERS: You know I don’t look back on those things and regret them…

Nice, kind people kept popping up in Obama’s adult life, like slumlord Tony Rezko, who helped him buy a nice house. Obama shared many dinners with former University of Chicago professor and terrorist sympathizer Rashid Khalidi. Obama thanked Khalidi for opening his eyes to the problems of the Palestinians and praised him in a sendoff speech as Khalidi headed for Columbia University.

About the same time, Obama also sought a relationship with God and he eventually settled down in a quaint Chicago Church, where his world view continued to sprou

REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT: The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing ‘God Bless America.’ No, no, no, God damn America, that’s in he Bible for killing innocent people.

Life was turning out grand for Obama: A communist family mentor,super radical friends, a wonderful church. It couldn’t get any better,could it? But it did, when he met his soul mate, Michelle

MICHELLE OBAMA: For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.

Spiritually, physically and ideologically the two were a perfect match. They married and the faithful Michelle would stand by her man on his political journey from the Illinois Senate in 1996 all the way to the Oval Office.

Despite the meteoric success, Obama hasn’t forgotten his roots. He’s still honoring his communist childhood mentor with each policy he drafts and he’s still networking and organizing and meeting and new friends. Friends like:

• Green “czar” Van Jones, the self avowed communist

• Science “czar” John Holdren, who is pro putting sterilants in the drinking water, forced abortions and government confiscation of babies

• Regulatory “czar” Cass Sunstein, a champion for getting animals legal rights

• Energy “czar” Carol Browner

I could go on forever about your crazy, wacky friends, Mr. President, but that would take time away from you on your birthday.

I want to wish you a happy birthday, but that wouldn’t be sufficient. So, Mr. President, we — the collective — wish you a very,happy birthday.
