OBAMA SEEKING THE POSITION OF UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY GENERAL

Before leaving the house for church yesterday (1/10/2016), I skimmed a brief article linked to Facebook indicating that the current president of the United States might be seeking the position of United Nations Secretary General.

Obama interested in becoming UN Secretary General

This is probably a hoax was my initial thought. I’ll have to research this after church. After church, my research indicated that Obama’s seeking the position of United Nations Secretary General had been reported in various media outlets, including, but not limited to, the Jerusalem Post and townhall.com, and the Washington Times. Yes, some of these outlets are conservative leaning, but the number of outlets carrying this story means that there must be some truth to it.

Like most of us, the first time I heard Barak Obama speak was at the 2004 Democrat National Convention. At the time he was an Illinois State Senator. Some of the things he said gave me an uneasy feeling. Furthermore, the democrats were slobbering all over themselves and all that was on the news the next day was Barak Obama, that state senator from Illinois. I was also disturbed by the way folks seemed almost in a state of worship toward him.

Contained his Obama’s acceptance speech for the Democrat party’s nomination for President in 2008 is the following: “Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal…” To me, this sounded a little “out there.” Had a Republican said something like this, the liberal media would have immediately declared him or her mentally imbalanced.

The way that democrats/liberals were worshipping this guy during the campaign was also scary. After being elected president, he was immediately awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for virtually doing nothing. The Norwegian committee indicated that he was accolated because it was anticipated that he would evolve into an outstanding world leader for the cause of peace. I’ve never heard of such…getting an award before actually doing anything to qualify for it. People all over the world seem to fall in lockstep with the new U.S. President, who was often depicted as Christ-like or Messianic.

In the Bible, Jesus said that he would come again. While no one except God, the Father, knows when that day will come, followers of Christ are given signs for which to watch that will signal his coming. The Bible also indicates that there will be many false Christs and false prophets that will come and go. It is also indicated in the Bible that there will be one false Christ that will arise and will be anointed ruler over the world before Christ’s second coming. This ruler will make war against Israel and those who are believers in Christ. This false Christ will be a liar and deceiver and cause many on earth to bow down and worship him.

How many people out there love Barak Obama, but couldn’t intelligently discuss his policies or his political philosophy?

Barak Obama is half black and how many blacks worship him, but couldn’t intelligently discuss any of his policies. I confronted one such Obama worshipper who is a black liberal. After the passage of Obamacare in 2010, she said that she loved Obamacare when it hadn’t even “kicked in” yet. I also confronted this person and told her that I hoped that she wasn’t worshipping Obama just because he’s half black (I have just as much in common ethnically with him as she does). She replied, “Oh no. I just love what he’s doing.” This was really scared me. For crying out loud, there were areas where I didn’t agree with Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush. An intelligent, politically astute person, is not going to agree with his or her elected officials on everything. If you do, you’re a light weight.

While this president has indicated that he practices Christianity, he touts Islam much more than he touts Christianity.

He’s continually lectured the American people that we shouldn’t judge an entire religion/philosophy by the acts of a few people. He has also made no effort to rescue those Christians who are being persecuted in foreign nations.

On the tenth anniversary of 9/11, while Obama was reading from the Bible at Ground Zero, he seemed uncomfortable. Those of us who grew up going to church and reading scripture develop an ebb and flow in our reading. Obama did not have this ebb and flow. His reading was choppy, making a few of us observe that he was indeed out of place reading from the Bible. Yes, I know he sang the hymn, “Amazing Grace” at the funeral of the nine church members who were shot in Charleston. However, that doesn’t change the fact that he appeared very uncomfortable reading scripture on 9/11/2011.

The job of the president of the United States is undoubtedly the most difficult job in the world. No president in my lifetime has come out of it without having aged substantially. When finishes his or her term as president, why would you want to take on something else that is difficult and carries great responsibility? As a former president, you are expected to make speeches, write your memoirs, perform certain tasks that the current president might assign to you, etc. You’ve run the race, you deserve some solitude and respect.

So why would any president soon to leave office want to jump back into the fire?

Some Obama-zombies might say that he’s still young and energetic, perfectly capable of another responsible position. Most presidents are older than 55 when they leave office, so they’re already senior citizens or about to be senior citizens. Still, it’s very strange.

In my above statements, I’m not drawing any conclusions. While the Bible explains a lot of things, it also leaves a lot of things unexplained. There are things we don’t know and will not know until Jesus returns to earth and the believers in Christ are transformed.

REASONABLE DISCUSSIONS WITH LIBERALS – HOW OXYMORONIC IS THAT?

Conservative Icon, Ann Coulter, has written many books about liberals. One of them is entitled, “How to Talk to a Liberal if You Must.” It was released in 2004 and I can’t remember for the life of me if I’ve read it, and trying to find it in my vast book collection is not on my current list of things to do.

Every boss I’ve ever had has told me that I lacked self-confidence and I do. One even said that he had more confidence in me than I had in me. I also have a tendency to let people take advantage of me or “roll over me.” The lack of self-confidence dates back to my early childhood years. Letting people “roll over me” or take advantage of me comes from being an only child. Not having siblings, I never learned the skill of taking up for myself.

Lacking self-confidence and letting others take advantage of me does not a political blogger/pundit make. I don’t blame family and friends who I grew up around for my short comings. It is what it is and I just have to try a little harder.

The first time I was attacked by a liberal after setting myself out as a political blogger, I was very upset. I realized, though, that as long as I put my feelings and opinions out there, I would be subject to more attacks. Could I stand the heat or did I need to get out of the kitchen. Now, over a year and a half later, I’m still blogging, but do have to remind myself that my stand on the issues is solid and liberal stands on the issues can be refuted.

Liberals think they’re so smart. In fact, most educators/academicians are liberal. That includes your elementary school teachers all the way up to those with doctorates who occupy the ivory towers of institutions of higher education.

Since becoming a political blogger and a utilizer of social media, I have had encounters with numerous liberals. If they’re so smart and so much better than us unenlightened oafs, how come they can’t read something and understand its meaning. I often post something, only to have a liberal make comments that are unrelated to the subject of the post. Sometimes I will have to ask them to go back and re-read what I said.

Liberals also love to accuse conservatives/Republicans of hating minorities and the poor. I can and do regularly deep-six those accusations. It isn’t hard to do.

I’ve also had experiences where I wasn’t discussing politics at all, only to have a liberal inject themselves in a conversation because he or she heard some kind of buzzword or phrase that they didn’t like. When this happens, I never fail to point out that the conversation or thread had nothing to do with a political concept. This is again, an example of liberals not being able to comprehend what is written or said.

Talk about short memories; “liberals, they got em.” On June 17, 2015, a lone gunman who was a known racist and had been pictured in a photo holding up a Confederate battle flag, shot and killed nine black members of a Charleston, South Carolina church. All of a sudden the responsibility for the shooting did not lie with a deranged young man, the responsibility, instead, was the fault of the Confederate flag. Liberals, in their ever continuing rush to judgment, started demanding that Confederate flags cease flying over government buildings. Of course, removing a few flags from a few southern state capitals was not going to satisfy them. They began attacking statutes of military men who fought valiantly for the South. Then, the Atlanta chapter of the NAACP demanded that the historic carving on Stone Mountain, just outside of Atlanta, showcasing Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, and Stonewall Jackson be sanded away. That struck a nerve with me and apparently it stuck a nerve with a lot of people.

The City of Birmingham has voted to remove a monument honoring Confederate soldiers and sailors who died during the Civil War.

On Monday, July 15, 2015, nine Alabama state senators introduced a bill at the beginning of a special legislative session that is designed to protect monuments on publicly owned property. The bill would outlaw the removal or relation of any statute or monument on public property honoring individuals or groups which participated in seventeen different military campaigns. Any group that wants to be exempt from the law would have to get permission from the Alabama Historical Commission. So, the state of Alabama is scrambling to keep the Feds and their wrecking balls from descending upon us and destroying history. I don’t know if other southern states are following suit. This is all well and good, but with the way the current dictator is taking us, those wrecking balls may be headed this way and states’ rights and the U.S. Constitution be damned.

Now, an alleged Islamic terrorist has killed five Marines in Chattanooga and I’ve heard very little talk regarding whether or not we should get rid of all symbols and statutes relating to Islam. Liberals who claim to be fair-minded and caring aren’t saying a word. While both liberals and conservatives lamented the shooting of the nine Charlestonians, I haven’t seen one liberal condemn the shooting. Instead, they are playing a waiting game to see how the investigation plays out. They didn’t do this in the shooting of Michael Brown of Ferguson, Missouri, nor did they do this in the death of Freddie Gray of Baltimore.

The current President has often lectured the American people, stating that we should not judge the religion of Islam by the acts of a few, but I haven’t heard him say anything about not judging southerners by the actions of one who was obviously deranged.

Could liberalism be a pre-cursor to Alzheimer’s? Ann’s book was published in 2004. Maybe I should read it or re-read it.

DISTURBING TRENDS – MAY 2015

The above black and white picture from the fifties was posted on Facebook by a liberal friend depicting a crowd of white youthful looking guys who were standing at what looked to be a lunch counter. The guys appeared to be giving a young black woman a hard time for also being at that lunch counter. As you can see, the caption of the photo reads: “White People be Like…If they protested peacefully, we would treat them with respect.”

This unenlightened oaf is not sure what this photograph is supposed to portray, but I’m going to guess that it’s a “dig” on white people. In the picture, the white guys appear to be rowdy and ganging upon a black woman. Today, with the riots in Baltimore and other major cities over the death of Freddie Gray, whites maybe indicating that if the current riots were, instead, peaceful protests, they would respect the protestors. In the fifties’ picture, the young white guys weren’t exactly peaceful.

Leave it to a racist liberal to continue to stir the pot. The phrase, “White People be Like” is Ebonics that dates back to pre-civil rights legislation and a photo like the one posted with this particular heading could very well be construed to be racist. (If the liberals can define racism on the fly to suit their particular needs, so can I.)

You can study the photo and determine what you think it actually means. I hope you have better luck than this unenlightened oaf.

I have written previously about this nation appearing to turn anti-white. Even whites are turning anti-white. The photo like the one I uploaded is a good example. It obviously dates back to the fifties or early sixties. Liberals, in their quest to control every aspect of your life, are never going to acknowledge that we are now in the twenty-first century. Instead of being positive and acknowledging all the progress that has been made in the area of civil rights, they insist on going back to the fifties and continuing to pontificate that little progress has been made. Liberals want to divide us by race. By continuing to preach to blacks that they are victims and will always be victims as long as there are conservatives still living on this planet. Because blacks will always be victims, they have no choice but to surrender to the government and become dependent on the government.

Up until the Baltimore riots, liberals would stop just short of condoning property damage and harm to human life that was the results of riots past. In other words, liberal leaders didn’t publicly condone the rioting, but as usual, tell us that we have to understand their rage and unless we had walked in their shoes, we knew nothing about the rioters and looters. Now, liberal leaders seem to be acknowledging and condoning the rioting. The mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said in a speech on April 25 that “we gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well.” I have read the paragraph containing these words over and over and it sure looks to me like she was condoning the destroying of property and the harming of human life.

When this first came out, the mayor indicated that the press was twisting her comments. Her comments were her comments and do not appear to be twisted by the press. However, if she had come out immediately and said that she misspoke, I would have a little more sympathy for her. So, it appears that while probably condoning the destroying of property and the harming human life in their heads and hearts, liberals wouldn’t go far enough to say it. Now, it appears that they may be turning the corner and in the future may very well condone the above.

It also seems as though liberals are slowly accepting Islam as a peaceful religion and attacking Christianity. Several weeks ago, a Facebook post appeared that quoted a tweet from Reverend Franklin Graham, a distant cousin of mine. In his tweet, Reverend Graham indicated that our government needed to halt all immigration of Muslims from countries that have active terrorist cells and take military action to defeat ISIS. The Facebook post took issue with Rev. Graham and replied, should the Native Americans have halted immigration of Christians from imperialist European countries, if they had the ability to do so, when Christians were migrating to America in search of religious freedom?

Of course, the above is totally different from the situation we have with ISIS today. The Native Americans were not at war with European countries like we are or should be with ISIS. We’re talking war-time strategy.

What was most disturbing to me was that a liberal Facebook friend of mine “liked” this post. This tells me that while there has been a war on Christianity by liberals for a while now, liberals have taken it to the next level and are overtly indicating their intolerance of the Christian faith in favor of ISLAM.

While there has certainly been a war on whites, a war on conservatives, and a war on Christianity by the liberal faction of this nation, the liberals didn’t come out and publicly declare that war. Now, though, I think they’re very close to it.

THE CURRENT PRESIDENT’S SPEECH AT THE NATIONAL PRAYER BREAKFAST

I read the current President’s speech for the National Prayer Breakfast taking place on February 5, 2015. And while I certainly didn’t like his comments where he brought up atrocities committed during the crusades, many, many years ago, I’m not as upset and vocal about it as some of the talking heads and I think that we need to move on to more pressing issues such as current President’s stance on ISIS and other terrorist groups that have the United States of America in their crosshairs.

He should not have brought up the crusades or the inquisition. Nor should he have brought up slavery and Jim Crow. February 5, a national day of prayer, is to honor our faiths and promote living in the spirit. Slavery and Jim Crow were wrongs that our great nation recognized and righted. Our continued faith plus our constitution has allowed for the righting of our wrongs.
Now that he has said what he has said, we’ll all continue to wonder what he meant. Was he speaking to Christians when he said, “And lest we get on our high horse and think this is unique to some other place.” Was he attempting to remind us who are also conservatives that atrocities were committed by Christians during the crusades and the inquisition, so the fact that atrocities are currently being committed by groups who are Islamic, makes us no better than them? That’s what it did say to me. But again, I think his comments were uncalled for on the National Day of Prayer. Instead of replaying these comments over and over again, we need to address the real problems which include the threat to the United States of America and this administration’s lack of attention to it.

I don’t think there’s anything that I can say that I’ve agreed with this President on anything since he’s been in office. I didn’t like some of the things that he said at the National Prayer Breakfast, but I generally don’t like anything he says. I wish this President would call Islamic terrorism what it is, Islamic terrorism. But I’m more concerned about what this president is doing or not doing about what most of us do call Islamic terrorism.

Do I think this President knows the Lord? I don’t know. Do I think former President George W. Bush knows the Lord? I think he does. The current President seems uncomfortable talking about Christianity, but does tout the religion of Islam. I remember back to September 11, 2011, the tenth anniversary of 9/11, the President was reading from the Bible at ground zero. He really seemed uncomfortable that day and his delivery of God’s Word was choppy. Other people noticed it also. I grew up reading from the Bible as did most of my friends and when we do read the Bible out loud, it flows. It didn’t flow when the current President was reading it on 9/11/11. That disturbed me and it still does.

I am worried about more about Islamic terrorists having us in their crosshairs and the current President’s lackadaisical attitude toward terrorism. On Friday, February 6, 2015, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, at the Brookings Institute, said the following: “But, too often, what’s missing here in Washington is a sense of perspective. Yes, there’s a lot going on. Still, while the dangers we face may be more numerous and varied, they are not of the existential nature we confronted during World War II or the Cold War. We can’t afford to be buffeted by alarmism and an instantaneous news cycle. We must continue to do the hard work of leading a complex and rapidly evolving world, of seizing opportunities, and of winning the future for our children.”
Since the Friday conference, the President has espoused Rice’s words and has indicated that he feels that we are indeed overplaying the danger of Islamic Terrorism and the Islamic State/ISIS. He instead feels that the greatest threat to our nation and to the world is climate change. I skimmed the remainder of Ms. Rice’s speech and found it to be mostly drivel.

I don’t agree with him or Ms. Rice at all. If we don’t stop the threat of Islamic Terrorism, climate change will become the least of our worries. Get a grip, current President, the terrorists have already declared war on the United States of America. What is it going to take for you to take this treat seriously? I think Justice Jeanine Pirro’s opening on Saturday, February 6 on Fox News, said it all. The Judge asked the current President why was it so easy for him to throw a rock at Christians, but never speak of Islamic Terrorists. She further indicated that he boasts of a security policy of strategic patience and asks what he’s waiting for while Iran gets closer to nuclear enrichment. He’s opened our borders, reduced our military, and continues to apologize for the actions of the United States of America. Judge Pirro challenges the President to stop defending Islam and start protecting Americans. The crusades were like a thousand years ago and Islamic Terrorism is now.

What the President said at the National Prayer Breakfast was uncalled for, but right in line with what he’s been saying about Islamic Terrorism. Let that embarrassing moment go and focus on his strategic patience security policy. It’s shallow, it’s wrong! The current President obviously hopes that the threat of terrorism will just go away or does he?
