Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Promises to Pass On

Mark 10:17-31, reveals the story of an exchange between a rich young man and Jesus. The young man, who had amassed great wealth, came to Jesus and asked what he could do to inherit eternal life. Jesus, despite how the man had appropriately addressed Him, saw past the list of laws he claimed to have upheld, and recognized the root of pride held in his heart. “Jesus looked at him and loved him.” – (Mark 10:21a) In His great love, Jesus told him truthfully, what it would cost for the young man to follow Him.

Jesus does not ask all of us to sell everything we own, nor are we often expected to give it all away. However, He does ask that we place Him above all else. He saw that wealth was in the highest position of honor in the young man’s life, so He directly exposed its root. Our eternal security is not something that we can earn, but rather a gift that is freely given, if only we are willing to believe and receive in faith. As we trust Him, He directs our heart in the ways we are meant to go, and keeps our path straight. When we are submitted to our Savior, we will hear what He is asking of us along the way. We are not promised wealth, nor security, nor a cushy bank account; but we are promised hope, faith, love, and a peace that surpasses all understanding, as we have His Spirit with us to navigate this adventure of a life.

‘Tis not to be earned,Promises to Pass On

this glorious gift;

our treasure to hold,

all praises we lift.

Forever our hope,

is founded in Christ;

not temporal things,

though they can be nice.

For Jesus alone,

is our only Source;

redeeming Savior,

our holy true course.

As we fix our eyes,

our hearts and our minds;

true treasure is found,

the eternal kind.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You look upon us with love, regardless of where we are in the process of moving closer to You. Thank You that You lovingly show us the way we are meant to go, and that You redirect us when we get off course. Forgive us for not fully submitting all that we are and all that we have, unto You. Teach us to trust You completely, as You alone are our true Source. May we recognize all that we have and all that we are is a gift from You that is meant to be shared. Help us to hear You well, so that we love as You call us to love. May many come to know the eternal hope that is held in You alone, as we live in the love You have so generously poured upon us. Be glorified, our great and mighty God. Amen.

Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. – James 5:13

Questions To Be Asked 2

President Barack Obama gives his weekly addres...

Image via Wikipedia

I originally wrote this post in Febuary, but I wanted to come back to it and review it. There are more question to be asked, but I wanted to ask something further. Since Barack Obama has been serving as President there have been many questions about whether he actually was legally able to claim “natural citizenship.” I am not a lawyer, but there are many challenges out there that seem to be reasonable. The fact that he put a fake birth certificate out the other day is truly disturbing and just adds to the questions.

It seems as if that is the plan of the Obama administration at times. Why would you put false papers out, knowing they would be challenged? But the pattern of this White House seems to be to stir up controversy on all fronts. They lie to the public in ways that it only takes a few moments to prove that they are lying, but they keep on doing it.

What bothers me even more than the chaos that they are causing, is the question of what would happen if we find out that Barack Obama does not fit the requirement for the President of the United State? What would happen? If the Supreme Court ruled in the favor of those who are challenging him, what happens next? Who makes Barack Obama give up the office that he would not legally be in? Do we really believe that a man and a party, the Democrat Party leaders have to have known, would give up power? Would they just not go to the public and say that the Supreme Court was in the wrong?

Then what would happen? Could we force his own justice department to remove him? Eric Holder? A man that only follows the laws that he likes and ignores the others? A man that is only in the position that he is in because of Barack Obama? And if he wouldn’t, who would? The FBI? What kind of crisis would that cause?

Is that their goal? To cause a Constitutional Crisis and divide this country? That is a truly scary thought, but it seems that with a lot of the policies that they are putting into place, they are pushing us into that direction. They care little about the rule of law. That is obvious from the way all the ABC agencies are pushing their agendas on the American people, the States, and business from small to large. Many of the questions I asked are still relevant so I won’t rewrite the whole post, I will just give you a chance to read it and consider the situation that this President and the actions of the Democrat party have put us in and ask you, my readers, “How In The World Do WE Change A President That May Refuse To Go?”

Where are we headed in this country? Why are the unions telling our President what to do? Or is it the other way around? Is our President the head of the unions? Why does the President or his aides meet with or talk to the unions everyday?Especially when he doesn’t bother to meet with his own cabinet ministers at all.

Does it seem strange to you that a man that is the leader of a great nation with a diverse cabinet, doesn’t even bother to gather them in one place and meet with them once a month, or even once every six months? Why is our President inserting himself into the state governments, while not bothering to make inroads into the massive debts that we have. Which is the job of the President? To take care of the federal government or the state government?

Who is benefiting both from the unrest here in the United States and in the rest of the world? What is the real goal. Is this good against evil? Or is there some agenda being played out that we are not aware of? Why is the press not covering all the things that are going on?

Why is the President so determined to abandon Israel? It does seem as if the President has much more respect for the Muslim religion than he does for the Christian, and he seems to have a literal hatred of Judism and Israel. Why? Is it his upbringing. Is this why our founders wanted to make sure that a President was a natural born citizen? Did they understand that only a natural born citizen would love this country enough to keep it safe?

Where does that leave the American people when the leader of the country does not share their love for the country? What are our options? If a President is trying to bring the country down from within, what can we do? We were asleep at the wheel when this President was elected. We didn’t think that someone could hate this country, and yet pretend to love it and want to make it better. We didn’t know that this country was vulnerable to someone who was determined to destroy it by using some of the laws and ignoring any that didn’t serve their purpose.

We are in a Constitutional Crisis and yet it seems as if most of our leaders are simply ignoring the fact and pretending that everything is normal. We have a leader, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, who is actively violating the constitution of the United States. Whether you like Mr. Obama or not, whether you agree with him or not, he is the President of the country.

As a leader, he has the obligation to not only obey the laws, he has the obligation to enforce and to make sure that those under him,obey the laws of the country. He took an oath when he was sworn in, to obey the laws of the country, and to protect the country. He has shown over and over that he does not believe that the laws apply to him and if he does get a judgement that goes against him, he either ignores them or pretends that they say something else.

Is This A Foretaste Of Our Future?


Lest We Forget: 9/11


Obama: Driving Us To Revolution?

The Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments t...

Image via Wikipedia

When you have a government that ignores the laws that they don’t like and place new laws upon the people by way of regulation, ignoring the will of Congress, the body established to write the laws, you have a lawless government. Most people recognize that laws are what holds the foundation together, like the mortar in bricks. Without laws, chaos rules.
What we have now is a lawless government. They have decided that the rules and the laws do not apply to them. This is not just the Obama administration, but the Bush administration before them to a certain extent too. Admittedly, the Barack Obama and his administration are going way beyond what the George W. Bush administration did.
But the results are the same. Our system of government is going into overload and beginning to break. We see it in the failure to enforce the laws to protect the border. We see it in the way that they pick and choose which states are eligible for aid, or able to skip the requirements that other states are required to obey. We see it in how some people are exempted from the law, while others are held to the strict letter of that same law.
Where do the people go when their government fails? Do they just keep on doing what they do, or do they get to a point where they decide that enough is enough, and start to hold that government accountable? We have seen the beginnings of that accounting with the Tea Party and others beginning to protest and question the leaders in the government. But if those leaders keep ignoring the people that they are elected to serve, and yes, those leaders are elected to serve, not rule, what happens then? Will the people decide that the next step is to revolt?
With the “Gunwalker Scandal”, we have seen some of the costs of a government that decides that they will do whatever they want, regardless of the cost to the people. Will they be held accountable? Or will this be swept under the rug and ignored by a media that has been complicit with this governments lawlessness?

In political science, legitimacy is the popular acceptance of a governing law or régime as an authority. . . . Political legitimacyis considered a basic condition for governing, without which, a government will suffer legislative deadlock(s) and collapse. In political systems where this is not the case, unpopular régimes survive because they are considered legitimate by a small, influential élite.The Enlightenment-era British social theoretician John Locke said that political legitimacy derives from popular explicit and implicit consent: “The argument of the [Second] Treatise is that the government is not legitimate unless it is carried on with the consent of the governed.” The German political philosopher Dolf Sternberger said, “Legitimacy is the foundation of such governmental power as is exercised, both with a consciousness on the government’s part that it has a right to govern, and with some recognition by the governed of that right.” The American political sociologist Seymour Martin Lipset said that legitimacy also “involves the capacity of a political system to engender and maintain the belief that existing political institutions are the most appropriate and proper ones for the society.” The American political theorist Robert A. Dahl explained legitimacy as a reservoir; so long as the water is at a given level, political stability is maintained, if it falls below the required level, political legitimacy is endangered. — Wikipedia.

If political legitimacy is a reservoir, the past twenty years of chronic two-party corrupt misgovernance and federally assisted crony capitalism, interspersed with periodic bloody fits like Ruby Ridgeand Waco, and culminating in the sacking of the public treasury in the bailouts and the debasement of the currency presently under way combines catastrophic drought and dam failure. The federal government is now morally. ethically, economically and spiritually bankrupt. The once-mighty reservoir is now a tiny rivulet of wishful thinking.Nothing illustrates this more than the Gunwalker Scandal, a cynical, bloody-minded conspiracy to subvert the Second Amendment by arranging the mass murder of Mexicans with American arms to justify further restrictions on law-abiding American firearm owners and more power and money for the federal bureaucrats who planned it.

Obama: Above The Law?

Barack Obama

Image by transplanted mountaineer via Flickr

What do you do with a President that decides the law does not apply to him. Every time a decision goes against Barack Obama, he just declares that it does not matter, he will do what he wants anyway. Where does it stop? If this what the Democrat party wants in a President? If it is, it tells all of the rest of us that they do not believe in the Constitution.
If they do, when are they going to stand up and tell Mr. Obama that he must stop? Even if he doesn’t listen to them either, at least they would be on the record in favor of the Constitution and the laws of this country. If Barack Obama gets away with it, what will they do when a Republican President takes command. I would argue that if they don’t stand now, they do not have a stand later.

Via Althouse, I learn the following from Jake Tapper:

One rider [to the bill] – Section 2262 — de-funds certain White House adviser positions – or “czars.” The president in his signing statement declares that he will not abide by it.

“The President has well-established authority to supervise and oversee the executive branch, and to obtain advice in furtherance of this supervisory authority,” he wrote. “The President also has the prerogative to obtain advice that will assist him in carrying out his constitutional responsibilities, and do so not only from executive branch officials and employees outside the White House, but also from advisers within it. Legislative efforts that significantly impede the President’s ability to exercise his supervisory and coordinating authorities or to obtain the views of the appropriate senior advisers violate the separation of powers by undermining the President’s ability to exercise his constitutional responsibilities and take care that the laws be faithfully executed.”

Therefore, the president wrote, “the executive branch will construe section 2262 not to abrogate these Presidential prerogatives.”

This raises an extremely serious constitutional question: if Congress has refused to fund the “czars,” where exactly does President Obama get the authority and funding to pay them?

Remember Iran-Contra? The problem for the Reagan Administration there was that Congress banned the president from allocating money to the Contras. The Administration, quite illegally in my view, tried to get around that ban by using funds from arm sales to Iran to subvert the Congressional ban.

Obama: Shredding The Constitution

WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 20:  Volunteers help roll...

Image by Getty Images via @daylife

Once again Barack Obama has shown that he thinks that he is above the law. We have seen this in the way that he has ignored laws that he doesn’t agree with such as DOMA, and with the way he has ignored the rulings of Judges in the Healthcare Bill. He has basically told the Congress that they are irrelevant and that he is going to do whatever he wants, regardless of what the Constitution says.
I just have to ask, if he doesn’t think the Constitution or the Congress are relevant, what does he think is relevant? Has Barack Obama declared that he is now the Emperor of the United States? Does he intend to follow the law and run for re-election?
We now have a President who is even more lawless that Mumar Quaddafi! Since Quaddafi is a dictator, he makes his own laws and does not feel the need to answer to anybody else. In what way is Barack Obama acting any differently? He has decided that the only laws that apply are the ones that he wants and likes. Isn’t that the same as a dictator?
The question is “What do we do about the petty dictator in the Oval Office?”
We are hearing impeachment from both sides, but I have news for you, friends, the man who doesn’t believe in the Constitution and the Congress will ignore the rulings of both those bodies. Then what? Do we use the military to remove the Commander of the military? Will we start a cival war with ourselves in order to remove the lawless man who pretends to lead the country?
What would the reactions be of those who support him? Who would be left standing when the fighting was over? Who would take advantage of the weakness that we would be left in? Is this the real objective of Barack Obama?

Hillary Clinton has declared that Barack Obama is now above the Constitution of the United States. The person who as candidate for President said:

“The President has the solemn duty to defend our Nation. If the country is under truly imminent threat of attack, of course the President must take appropriate action to defend us. At the same time, the Constitution requires Congress to authorize war. I do not believe that the President can take military action — including any kind of strategic bombing — against Iran without congressional authorization. That is why I have supported legislation to bar President Bush from doing so and that is also why I think it is irresponsible to suggest, as some have recently, that anything Congress already has enacted provides that authority.”

Now says

After Wednesday’s briefing, legislators said Clinton told them the administration acted within the requirements of the War Powers Act and needed no congressional authorization for further decisions on the mission.

Got that? He don’ need no stinkin’ Congress

Obama: Changing America or Ending It?

Changing of the Guard, Inaugration Day, Washin...

Image by Beverly & Pack via Flickr

When Barack Obama told the world that he wanted to “fundamentally change” America, most of the people who voted for him, assumed that he wanted to make it better. Some people suspected that it was not what he had in mind, but it was ridiculed and discarded, by the media, and most Americans. After all, that wasn’t what they wanted. They were so hungry for things to be better than they were getting under George W. Bush. They were afraid that their finances were disappearing, and Obama was the “One”, he was going to make it all better.
But once he was elected, it seemed that he had plans, that most people weren’t aware of. It was not that he hadn’t told people, it was that they really didn’t listen. Mostly because they just listened to what they wanted to hear, and many in the media, didn’t bother to report it. The ones that did report it, were ignored by a lot of the people, because they were portrayed as supporting the other side, and by that standard were not to be trusted.
As each month passed, many people began to understand that what Mr. Obama was giving them, wasn’t quite what they had expected. Many of those started looking at those who were protesting the changes that were beginning to appear, some with delight, others with fear or unease. More and more people started questioning exactly what kind of change that Barack Obama intended.
It seems that the idea of creating jobs, was to alter the lifestyle of everyone in American, by destroying the jobs that they had in mining, oil wells, insurance, and many other industries. It no longer appeared that what Mr. Obama wanted, was what most of the rest of America wanted. The fears of many were returning, and becoming stronger. The confidence that things would improve was beginning to get worse.
Barack Obama seemed to be intent on apologizing for the actions of everyone who came before him, and it seemed that everything that the United States had ever done, was bad. The fact that this was the place that most of the world wanted to come, to when their country let them down, didn’t count. It didn’t matter that we had one of the best standards of living in the whole world. In fact, Barack Obama seemed to feel as if we should lower our standard of living. As if we would be more respected, and admired if we had the same standard of living as the Middle East , or Africa.
If fact that was the direction that he intended to take us. No matter if that was what we wanted or not. The faster he could get us there, the better. It didn’t matter if he overloaded the system. If we were unable to pay our bills, there was always China. So don’t worry, we will just borrow more money. If China says enough one of these days, no problem, we will just devalue our money, and print more.
The article below brings reason to the argument that this is all by design. I have felt that way for a long time. I don’t pretend to know the purpose, maybe no one but Barack Obama will ever know that. However, although the article lays out the reasoning, it doesn’t ask the further question of what will Barack Obama do if he loses re-election in 2012? He has shown that the Constitution and the law of the land have no meaning for him and his administration, so, you have to ask, what happens next? What is to stop Barack Obama from declaring some emergency, and putting a halt to the elections? Would the military step in to stop him? Would the National Guard? Are there enough Democrats who believe in the country to stop him? Or is it what he plans? Is driving this country into a cival war the real goal? Is there anybody else out there who wonders if Barack Obama believes that he is in any way bound by a Constitution that he doesn’t believe in?

We can survive many traits in presidents,
but malice is not among them. In the unfolding saga of the Libyan adventure I note that, even though it is early innings, a popular strain of conservative criticism centers around the always popular idea of ‘stupidity in government;’ with a variant on the subset of ‘the president is not as smart as he thinks.’ The popular variant this time is: ‘deep down, Obama is shallow.’ This notion includes various complimentary subsets such as ‘he is lazy,’ ‘he is incompetent,’ ‘he’s hooked on the perks and doesn’t care for the work.’ All comfortable notions that imply that the critic is, conversely, smarter, more diligent, and more fit to make governmental decisions than the president. The problem here is that the critic is not the president and hence has no power to do anything remotely presidential.
‘m no friend of conspiracy theories. The truthers who imagine that hundreds of people have all kept the federal government’s dark roll in 911 hold no attraction to me. Too complex and with a membership that is too substantial to keep such secrets. The birthers who look to finally exposing the odd origins of the president who seems to have sprung from the brow of Zeus? Too irrelevant if true, sinc

e it will not alter the election, and, if false, pure fritterware.

At the same time, I acknowledge that there are conspiracies in the world. By extension, the most successful conspiracies would involve a very few people with a lot of access to money and power. Taking one more step, one would have to posit that the perfect conspiracy would not involve even a few people, but only one person with access to money and power.

That person would be a sociopath but if he was the right sociopath in the right place at the right time his native intelligence, high or low, stupid or smart, wouldn’t really matter. What would matter would be the level of his maliciousness. It would not matter what his real IQ was but rather his level of cleverness and his innate shrewdness. Indeed, to the clever and shrewd person a critical conversation involving whether he was being “stupid” or “lazy” only works to his advantage since is draws attention away from malice and gives him more time and space to pursue his goals. As Machiavelli knew, and Stalin proved, when the ends secure pure power, the means are irrelevant and history rewritable.

The Washington Times has a very interesting article on the lawlessness of the Obama administration. We have seen how little they think of rulings that go against them. And we have seen how they willfully ignore and reject the validity of both the judgements and those making them.
Maureen Martin has come up with a brilliant solution, or at the very least, a partial solution to the problem of sticking the taxpayers with the bill. Please read her article and give her cudos for thinking outside the box and coming up with something that might actually give those in charge pause.

Parties who fail to obey court orders usually are required to pay financial sanctions, in part to compensate the opposing side for the costs of repeated trips to court. The party involved here – the government, meaning us taxpayers – usually would pay these costs. But courts have the power to order individual lawyers to pay the fines in appropriate circumstances.

Given that Mr. Obama and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. are the ones who are acting as if they’re above the law, the courts ought to show them they are not and order them to pay up. Personally.

When Does the Constitution End

First page of Constitution of the United States

Image via Wikipedia

Does it end? Does it no longer apply? Is the President bound by the Constitution? Or is it simply a roadmap that he can follow if he chooses?
John Adams said “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
What did he mean by that? Perhaps what he meant was that if our leaders no longer had any morals and did not feel that they were someday going to have to answer to a higher authority for their actions, they would not feel themselves bound to obey something that they did not agree with.
Mr. Obama and his administration have made it perfectly clear that they do not feel that any law of the country that they do not agree with, that they are not obligated to either obey, or defend it in the courts. They do not even seem to feel that they should obey the courts if they are directed to.
None of this is Constitutional, so perhaps Mr. Adams was right. Perhaps that means that the next person who is elected to the office of the President must at the very least prove to the American people that they have some morals. Let us make sure that they are not just striving to gain power over the people in order to “Fundamentally Change” both America and the Constitution in order to suit what ever agenda that they may have. Let us instead listen to the words of Thomas Jefferson who said “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

Our President wouldn’t be the first to act extra-constitutionally; the pattern goes far back into U.S. history. The famous slippery slope describes that history; earlier events made smaller blips on the power horizon and later ones loom larger. Sometimes, the Supreme Court has stepped in, as exemplified by Presidents Roosevelt and Truman.
President Obama though, may have outdone any of his predecessors in exerting such powers and in avoiding much juridical or public reaction in so doing. In effect, if that observation is correct, the Constitution might be decreasingly interesting history.
Some of the actions we’ll examine have occurred with the formal support of a compliant Democratic Congress; others have been done by the President or his officers on their own.
The Constitution provides the President these powers:
  1. To command the military (but not to declare war).
  2. With Senate consent, to appoint U.S. officials and judges.
  3. To appoint officials created in law as the law provides and to commission officers.
  4. With Senate ratification, to make treaties.
  5. To fill vacancies during Senate recess and to receive ambassadors.
  6. To pardon convicts and convene or adjourn Congress in certain cases.
  7. To demand formal opinions from department heads.
  8. To faithfully execute the laws.

The Value of American Lives

Do we have in Barack Obama a man who has so little care of the value of the life and treasure in America, that he is willing to spend it all, just to make a name for himself in the history books? Do we have a man who believes in his own importance above and beyond the importance of the country itself? Do we have an administration who believes that they are above the laws and rules at the same time that they are making new and more destructive rules on the people that they were elected to serve. Does Mr. Obama see himself as the President of the United States or does he see himself as someone higher?

Amplify’d from www.americanthinker.com
In Barack Obama’s economy, it appears as if making a philosophical point is worth the loss of American lives.  For example, in an appeal to the gay lobby, Obama mandated that, in the midst of war, our military be purposely distracted from the pressing issue of defeating the Taliban by giving precedence to gay sensitivity training on the battlefield.
In addition, the President of the United States seems committed to strengthening America’s enemies by ignoring the true motives of those whose intent is to do us harm.  On more than one occasion, after military personnel were murdered in cold blood by “Allahu Akbar“-screaming terrorists, Obama — careful not to be offensive to Islam — refused to refer to terrorism as such.  Instead, rather than condemn the obvious, an emotionless Obama called an act of holy war a “horrific outburst of violence,” leaving the judgment of jihadists to formal inquiry.

Obama’s Fundamental Change of America

Barack Obama campaigning in Akron, Ohio.

Image via Wikipedia

When Mr. Obama was running for President in 2008, his platform was “Hope and Change”. All of us wanted to hope that change would be for the better. We wanted to economy to improve and for there to be more jobs. We wanted to have more money in our pockets and food on our table. We wanted the wars to end and our people to be able to return home to their families. We wanted to bring America back to the high standards that she had held for most of her history.
Many people thought that that was what Mr. Obama was offering them. They thought that he would do as he had promised and concentrate “like a laser” on jobs and jump starting the economy. They didn’t realize that when he was allocating the stimulus money that what he was really doing, was paying off his supporters. They didn’t realize that when he was focusing on jobs, it would be to see how many he could get rid of by closing mines, stopping the building of coal-fired energy plants, and stopping drilling. They didn’t think that instead of improving the economy and bringing more jobs to the country, he would inact policies that would lead to higher gas and food prices. The fact that gas is as high as $5.49 in some places in CA is putting enormous pressure on the poor and middle class. When you add in the increased cost of food, the totality of the cost is crippling.
Mr. Obama is well on his way to fundamentally changing this country, but it is not a change for the better. Nothing that he has done has been to make this country a better and more prosperous place to live. The increased burdens have forced us to live more and more on a edge that we are finding ourselves at an increased risk of falling off.
Even if we elect a new President in 2012, it may be decades before we can regain what we have lost under Mr. Obama. That all depends on whether Mr. Obama will even listen to the people and step down. Nothing that he has done so far has shown that he has any more respect for the rule of law than he does for the country or it’s people. Time and again he and his administration have ignored and completely disregarded laws that they don’t like. We have no evidence that they will not do the same with the results of the 2012 election.

Amplify’d from www.americanthinker.com
While on his campaign trail for the presidency, Barack Obama talked to no end about the “change” that would visit upon America, a change so profound, so sweeping, that it would “fundamentally transform” America.  To understand the implications of this, we would do ourselves a good turn to subject the concept of “change” to philosophical interrogation.
“Change” is a concept with a storied history in the annals of Western philosophy.  In fact, it is no exaggeration to account for Western philosophy itself as an enduring conflict over the nature of change and its place in the world.  From its inception in ancient Greece 2600 years ago to the present day, philosophers have realized that inquiries regarding change are inseparable from those concerning permanence, identity, knowledge, belief, particulars, universals, and, in short, a plethora of other philosophical concepts.

Obama Administration: Justice Denied?

Evidently, Eric Holder believes that he is a victim.When he testified to the Congressional panel about the dropping of the Justice Department investigation of the New Black Panthers intimidating people outside a polling place, he seemed to imply that only his people were the ones that deserved protecting. He says that ” it does a great disservice to his people to compare the actions to the abuses of cival rights marches.”

Official portrait of United States Attorney Ge...

Are we to take away from this statement that the only ones that Mr. Holder is looking out for are “his people”? Does that mean that anyone can do anything they want and they are simply going to look the other direction, unless the ones that are being threatened are the people that Eric Holder believes deserve being protected? If this is the case, how can we trust the Eric Holder Justice Department to protect any of the rest of us in any other instance. What about rape, or murder? Are these not crimes if the are not targeting Eric Holder’s “people”?

What if the New Black Panther’s decide to “kill all the cracker babies”, like one of their members advocated? Would this be a crime? Perhaps that sounds a little outrageous, but if you are making a determination on the validity of a crime on the basis of race in a cival rights issue, what would keep someone from taking the next step? You are going down a road that leads to people being treated as less than human when you divide them up into who deserves to be considered a victim and who does not based on their race.

When we elect a President into office, they are there to represent all the people of the country and they should make it clear to the Attorney General that the same standards apply to them. If the Attorney General does not believe that that is the case then the process for impeachment must begin. Mr. Holder must clarify his position because if he does not, no one in this country will be able to have faith that justice will be practiced equally and every decision that is made is open to question. If you can not trust those in charge of Justice to be just then you can not trust them in any situation.

Obama’s America

Mr. Obama seems to feel that he only has to enforce/obey laws that he approves of. What happens if the Supreme Court tells him that Obamacare is unconstitutional? Will he decide that he does not have to listen to them? If so, what then? What if Mr. Obama decides that he does not have to follow the process in the Constitution and run for re-election in 2012? Or if he loses, what if he decides that he doesn’t agree with the results, and just stays in office? Will Democrats support removing a lawless President from office?

Will the country stand up and demand that he steps down?

And even if the country demands it, will he do it? What happens if you have a lawless President that refuses to step down? Can we legally use the military to remove him? Would the military obey? After all, until he does step down, he is the commander of the armed forces. Would that lead to a cival war? Who would be fighting? If this country went to war against itself, who from the outside would step into the breech and take advantage of our weakness?

Obama’s Lawless America


The Obama Doctrine? Destroy the World?

What is Mr. Obama’s desire in the Middle East? Is de-listing the Sudan from the State Sponsers of Terrorism, what is best for the United States, or even for the World? Is another state that is Shariah compliant going to make the Middle East more secure? Is another country that is determined to obtain nuclear weapons really what we want in the area?

What is Mr. Obama’s desire for Israel? The country that has been our truest ally in an area of unrest, is finding itself more and more at risk. With every country that surrounds it either becoming more and more radicalized and their leaders falling to Islamic fundamentalist like the Muslim Brotherhood, their danger is increasing daily. And yet, instead of us affirming our support, we are standing on the side and basically saying that “you are on your own.” Why? What do we have to gain? It is not what most of this country, or even those in Congress, want, and yet, that seems to be the policy of the Obama administration.

We seem to have a policy of just stirring up agitation and creating chaos. Nothing this administration has done, or plans on doing, has lead to anything but more chaos. Why? Is it deliberate? Is it ineptitude?

We see the violence in Greece, with union leaders encouraging more and more violence. We see union leaders encouraging violence in Italy, England, Portugal, and even in India. We see unions even advocating violence and disruption here in the United States. We have men like Louis Farrakan saying that violence is necessary to change the world. No one in this administration has come out against what the unions are doing. If fact, they are doing the opposite, they are telling those that are trying to stand against violence, that they are the ones in the wrong. What is their goal. Is the change that they are propagating, change that is good and right for this country? Or is it a process that will lead to the destruction of the country?

What kind of world do the people who support Obama and the unions want? I am not talking about those in power. I know what they want, more power. What I am talking about, are those union members worldwide. Do they really believe that they will be better off? Are they just looking for someone to take care of them? Do they think that people like Obama, really care about them?

It’s sad really, but I think that they really do think that Obama is going to take care of them. Like the woman in Florida before Obama was elected, who thought that she would not have to pay her house payment when he was elected. They think that they are going to “take it from the rich and give it to the poor”.

Mr. Obama is on a course to wreck havoc not only on the United States, but the whole world. His policies are dangerous and ill-informed. They leave his supporters wondering at the sanity of the man and wondering who he is really listening to. Instead of being a calm and reassuring force in the world, he is agitating and stirring the pot of violence and unrest. When his reign is up, no one knows what is going to be left. His abandonment of allies and embracing of enemies empowers all those who would do us harm and leaves those who would help him and us adrift on a sea of uncertainty and danger.

When we look and the way he quickly abandoned Mubarak and yet waited to speak out against Gaddafi, while thousands were being killed, we see a policy that has no real meaning. It instead it just leads to more and more chaos. Is that the Obama doctrine? To cause as much chaos in the world as possible.

If it is, Mr. Obama is the most dangerous person in the world. He has no idea where any of the countries that he is strirring up, will be when the violence is over. He has no idea what kind of leadeship will be in place. He has no idea how the people will be treated during and after the violence. He seems to have no feelings at all, except for some kind of glee at the power he welds. That makes him extremely dangerous.

Someone with power can use it wisely or unwisely, we are seeing the cost to the whole world in having someone use that power unwisely. We are seeing someone who seems bent on destroying the world!!!

Barack Obama: Aging Child Star

There comes a time when you just have to say enough is enough and we can’t take any more. I think that we have reached that time. The world is starting to come apart and our President is dithering around like a aging child star without any real role to play but still thinking that he is the greatest thing that there is.

We don’t have time for that anymore! We have moved beyond looking for the “American Idol” and now we need someone that we can follow. Someone who can lead us out of this mess that Mr. Obama and his minions have gotten us into. We need a leader, not a leading man. The trouble is that Mr. Obama has played this role of being the star for so long, that he doesn’t seem to realize that it is not a role any longer. He only knows how to act as long as someone is feeding him the lines. There are no lines for the situation that we find ourselves in now.

There is not even a good director in the Whitehouse to tell the man what he should do. He has stacked the deck with adoring sycophants who know no more than he does and so when there is a real crisis, no one knows what to do. Hillary warned us that he would not be able to handle that three am phone call, but what we didn’t know was that she didn’t know how to handle it either.

It is time for Mr. Obama’s party to wise up and look to the security and welfare of the country and encourage Mr. Obama to step down. I am not sure that Mr. Biden would be any better, but he would have others to listen to, and he at least, has proven that he does have the ability to listen.

If they do not act, we have to assume that they are wanting this country to be brought down, and if that is the case, we must look at other options. Terrorists from outside the country tried that on 9/11. We went to war to stop that from happening again. Mr. Obama and his followers are risking a great deal to try and bring the country down from the inside. There is nothing in the Constitution that says that we have to allow that to happen. There are processes in place to deal with that and these are already being started in many states. When Mr. Obama finds that he is not the leading man, but is the bad guy, perhaps he should consider that the ending of the story is never good for the bad guy.

It’s a shame really, that the man that had the most to gain by leading this country, and the most to gain by being the star, could instead wind up with losing the most. This country will recover with dignity, but Mr. Obama will probably only be remembered for what he could have been. When people remember Ronald Reagan, they remember that the country grew under him. When people remember Barack Obama, they will remember that this country was divided and torn by him.

Judicial Chaos?

What happens to existing laws when a sitting President decides that his justice department is not obligated to defend these laws.

It’s one thing if the Supreme Court decides they are not constitutional, but it is another for a President to declare that. Where does it leave those who are involved in court case both for and against the law? How do judges that are in the middle of making decisions, make those decisions, and what do they base it on?

In one act the President of the United States has thrown chaos into what, until this time, has been a stable, and trusted form of deliberation. Until now, people could have trust in the process, even if they were not always happy with the outcome. Now, no one can be sure that someone else will not come along and decide that whatever law that they don’t believe in, is unconstitutional.

Was that their real intent? To disrupt the Judicial process and create chaos?

Or is it another assault on Christianity? Will this lead to states being forced to recognize gay marriage, even if it is against their beliefs. Is this a foot in the door to tell Christians what they can believe and how they can practice their religion?

The post I have linked to below from the Christian Science Monitor is really frightening.

Mad King Barack Obama

Mr. Obama’s idea of being President is to party hearty while the rest of the country dies a slow death. I read a post today about the Obama DOJ going after Bobby Jindal in LA. and trying to find some way to get his administration on failure to enforce the Moter Voter law. They don’t feel that laws they don’t like are worth enforcing and that they can just declare that they don’t believe that they are Constitutional. But if it is something that they do believe in, they will go after it with an obsessional fervor. It is insane the way that they are running this country…..

What is their agenda? Are they truly determined to destroy this country? Do they truly believe that they can remake it to suit them? Do they not realize that their are too many people that won’t go along with that? This is not Chicago, or Illinois where they have done this for years.

They do not understand the fury they are stirring up in the rest of the country. If they continue down this path, the end will not be with them in control and the end will not be with them making millions of dollars going on speaking tours, the end will probably be with many in the administration in jail, serving long prison terms.

If they had any sense they would take the time to look at a map of all the states that are now red. The coast of the country is beautiful and many years ago, could have gotten along without the interior of the country, but in their arrogance, they  are forgetting that they can no longer do that. The middle of the country is where they get most of the production and food. The South is also not going where NY and CA are wanting to go. Even most of Ill. is not going where  Chicago whats to go. Why do they think that all of these areas are losing people? If people wanted what these areas of the country offered, they would be staying there.

Even is Mr. Obama wins, he loses. This country will rebound. The way our Constitution is written we have the ability to come back. The works to enable that are already underway in the states that are passing laws to retake the control that the federal government has taken for themselves the past one hundred years.

Mr. Obama has lost because he has woken the people up and they have said,“No, we do not want what you are forcing upon us”.

What will happen to Mr. Obama? Who knows!!!! Will he be refurbished, like Mr. Carter has to a certain extent? I doubt it!!! Mr. Obama will probably go through what money he has, and will earn in the future and then fade into history to be remembered only as the man that tried and failed to destroy this beautiful country.

He might make some money talking for awhile, but I don’t think people are going to want to pay money for someone to tell them that everything that went wrong was someone else’s fault, or listen to him whine about being not respected.That is all dependent on whether he remains a free man. If he keeps going the way that he does, he may wind up spending the rest of his life in jail or under house arrest. Preferably the first in my case.

Will the Democrat party realize that the man that they have put into power is determined to destroy the country and that he doesn’t care if he takes them with it. Will they realize that instead of a man that will make this country stronger and ensure that they will be in charge for many years, they have instead elected a man that is willing to stomp them into the ground to get what he wants. Are they even able to see that what they want matters less to him that the bugs that crawl on the ground.

Questions To Be Asked

U.S. Presidential flag, 1960-present (not usua...

Image via Wikipedia

Where are we headed in this country? Why are the unions telling our President what to do? Or is it the other way around? Is our President the head of the unions? Why does the President or his aides meet with or talk to the unions everyday?Especially when he doesn’t bother to meet with his own cabinet ministers at all.

Does it seem strange to you that a man that is the leader of a great nation with a diverse cabinet, doesn’t even bother to gather them in one place and meet with them once a month, or even once every six months? Why is our President inserting himself into the state governments, while not bothering to make inroads into the massive debts that we have. Which is the job of the President? To take care of the federal government or the state government?

Who is benefiting both from the unrest here in the United States and in the rest of the world? What is the real goal. Is this good against evil? Or is there some agenda being played out that we are not aware of? Why is the press not covering all the things that are going on?

Why is the President so determined to abandon Israel? It does seem as if the President has much more respect for the Muslim religion than he does for the Christian, and he seems to have a literal hatred of Judism and Israel. Why? Is it his upbringing. Is this why our founders wanted to make sure that a President was a natural born citizen? Did they understand that only a natural born citizen would love this country enough to keep it safe?

Where does that leave the American people when the leader of the country does not share their love for the country? What are our options? If a President is trying to bring the country down from within, what can we do? We were asleep at the wheel when this President was elected. We didn’t think that someone could hate this country, and yet pretend to love it and want to make it better. We didn’t know that this country was vulnerable to someone who was determined to destroy it by using some of the laws and ignoring any that didn’t serve their purpose.

We are in a Constitutional Crisis and yet it seems as if most of our leaders are simply ignoring the fact and pretending that everything is normal. We have a leader, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, who is actively violating the constitution of the United States. Whether you like Mr. Obama or not, whether you agree with him or not, he is the President of the country.

As a leader, he has the obligation to not only obey the laws, he has the obligation to enforce and to make sure that those under him,obey the laws of the country. He took an oath when he was sworn in, to obey the laws of the country, and to protect the country. He has shown over and over that he does not believe that the laws apply to him and if he does get a judgement that goes against him, he either ignores them or pretends that they say something else.

Obama: Failure of Leadership

the 44th President of the United States...Bara...

Image by jmtimages via Flickr

What is wrong with this man that we have elected President of the United States? When he was running for office he told us that he was the only one who could solve the massive problems that this country has. Instead of trying to solve problems, he has caused even more.


Instead of trying to fix the economy, he has enacted new programs that are costing us even more money. Instead of helping to get us off foreign oil, he has shut down so many oil producing wells, that we will be importing even more foreign oil. We are losing more and more jobs with the policies that they are putting into place. Instead of saving our economy, it seems that he is determined to make the cost of running a business more expensive. The rules and regulations that are being applied to every aspect of our lives are costly, dangerous, and  extremely destructive to the future of the country itself.


A leader leads, he doesn’t push it on down the road for someone else. Mr. Obama is no leader. He does not seem to feel that it is his job to come up with a budget for the country. He does not seem to think that it is his job to do much of anything, except to throw parties, and order people around. He doesn’t think that the law applies to him. He doesn’t think that friends of the country matter. He doesn’t even think that the people of the country matter.


He said that he knew how to help the American people save their homes, instead he has put into place policies that are locking homes up in litigation, with no one knowing who will come out ahead. Instead of allowing new loans, banks are afraid to loan money, because they don’t know what the administration is going to come up with next, in the term of rules and regulations, as well as fines that are retroactive.


We are finding that inflation does exist, and that we are facing rising costs, in food, energy, and everything else that we buy. The funny thing though, is that, it doesn’t count to this government. It does to us though.To be honest these problems didn’t start with Mr. Obama, and his administration is not the only one that used this process, to deceive the people of the country into thinking that things were not as bad as they really were. But I remember Mr. Obama saying that he was “Change we could believe in”. Well, he has brought about change we can believe in, alright. The trouble is the change is for the worse and not the better.


Even in foreign policy, the change that he has brought about is change that we really don’t want. We were told that since Mr. Obama had lived in the Middle East as a child, that he would be able to communicate, and tamp down the anger against the country, instead we have a area of the world that is much more agitated than it was before he took office. We wanted to make our country more secure. Instead we have a country that is turning it’s back on it’s allies and embracing enemies. Our borders are more open that they were before he took office, and we have found evidence that terrorists are able to enter the country through them. He has abandoned Israel and even says that he will vote against her in the UN.


What kind of leader throws friends under the bus, and opens the door for those that want to do us harm? What kind of leader enables our enemies? What kind of leader abuses the people he is charged with leading? If Mr. Obama was the head of a corporation, he would be fired. If he was a father and did these things to his children, he could be prosecuted and jailed.


Questions are finally beginning to be asked about what the real goal of the Obama administrations is. And questions are finally beginning to be asked if the President is capable of running this country. Questions are finally be asked that should have been asked before he was elected.


A leader needs passion, but the only passion Mr. Obama seems to have is anger, and frustration when he is being questioned, and glee when he can put others down. This is not the passion of a leader, this is the passion you see in a child that enjoys bullying other children. The signs were there for us to see before he was elected, but perhaps we were so hungry for something different, that we didn’t realize that the something different we were getting was actually  poison.


A leader inspires others to follow him or her, they do not need to force others to do their will. In fact, they realize that their will is not the most important thing, that the good of the people that they are entrusted to lead is what is the most important. Mr. Obama is under the mistaken idea that since he was elected, that his wants and desires are what matters.We have a system in this country that the leader is supposed to serve the people. Mr. Obama is under the impression that we are here to serve him.

Who does Mr. Obama really serve?

Obama: Oathbreaker In Chief

It says a lot about the leaders of a country that fear the citizens more than they fear those outside. When we have failed to secure the borders of the country and our leaders who have been charged with that responsibility, are doing everything in their power to keep our borders from being secure instead, we have reached a point where we are slipping from the republic that our founders established, to tyranny. When we have reached a point that our leaders who have sworn to obey the Constitution, ignore it, and decide that the laws do not apply to them, we have reached a point of Constitutional Crisis.


President Obama, members of his Cabinet, people at the Justice Department, were all required to take a oath when they took office. The question is what happens when they decide that it does not apply to them? What recourse to we as citizens of this great country have to either hold them to that oath, or cause them to be removed from office?


What happens when, instead of protecting our country, from enemies, our leaders are preventing us from even protecting ourselves? The Obama administration has made it extremely hard for citizens in the country to travel by air, while  people who live outside this country are able to cross our borders with little or no risk from our government.


If they are unlucky enough to be caught, they are released back into the country with a warning to appear before a judge for a hearing. Most of them ignore the order and just disappear. Even the ones that have some little respect for our laws and deign to appear before a judge, are often just told to come back for another hearing.


At the same time citizens of the country who just complain about the things they have to go through, to fly, are arrested, or fined. If they still have a problem, they are often put on a no fly list. It’s something that our founders would not have stood for. Unreasonable search and seizure is in the Constitution for a reason. This is a real example of unreasonable. No citizen of any country should be expected to withstand more scrutiny that people that are illegally entering that same country.


Our remedy to these problems are written into the Constitution itself. They are trifold.

  • 1st: We have the ability to impeach and remove from office
  • 2nd: Even these people, when the violate the law, are not above the law. They themselves are subject to being arrested and held for trial before a judge.
  • 3rd:The President himself can be removed from office by the simple manner of the election.

In two years we will have another election. It is up to us to make the people of this country aware of the lawlessness of this administration. It is not going to be easy, but we must do it. Only then can we remove all the people that they have put in place and begin to return our country to it’s foundation.

EPA responds to congressional attempts to reel in greenhouse gas regulation (via Watts Up With That?)

This EPA director is the worst in the history of the agency. She is arrogant and lawless. She asumes that she has more power that the Congress and the Courts. She has ignored the will of Congress and the Courts and flaunts the power that she thinks she has as if the law has no meaning to her.
She has accused the Congress of trying to kill children by regulating what she can do, at the same time the policies that she is putting in place are going to lead to millions of people doing without heat, food, and jobs.
The restrictions she and the Obama administration are putting on Energy plants alone, will drive the cost up so much, that we will be lucky if we have enough money to run the dangerous lightbulbs that they are requiring that we use.
The cost of food will rise due to the cost of energy and transportation. The increased cost that will be needed to abide by the new regulations on milk will make it out of reach for many. They are asking for a decrease in the amount of money that is available for the poor in heating their homes. They have reduced the proposed amount allocated from 5.6 billion to 2.6 billion.
How many people will die because of these policies? If these people really cared about the poor and children, they would not be putting in place policies that are hindering the ability of those same people to live. The one’s that are actually killing children are the very same ones that are accusing Congress of doing so!!!!!

EPA responds to congressional attempts to reel in greenhouse gas regulation The question is, are we a country of laws made by our representatives, or a country of laws made by bureaucrats? The constitution provides only one answer, and Ms. Jackson would do well to read it. Latest News release from the EPA: CONTACT: EPA Press Office press@epa.gov February 9, 2011 Administrator Lisa P.
