OBAMA: HOW TIRING, HOW TEDIOUS, HOW WORN-OUT AND FALSE-HEARTED: TWISTING, AVOIDING: JUNE 4, 2009 SPEECH IN EGYPT
Barack Obama gave a speech in Egypt June 4, 2009. His writers imagine they'll get him by, squeeze him through, let him escape discernment and comparison. Wrong! We aren't hypnotized. We are awake and have the Holy Spirit to tell us where the speech is way off the narrow way and not through the strait gate. We have the Holy Spirit telling us not to let the tedious, Big Lie, cause us not to persevere, not to tell the world where Jesus is right and Obama is dead wrong — dead of the Holy Spirit of truth wrong.
Now, we are against violent coercion or any other form of coercion.
OBAMA IS WRONG: TERM "VIOLENT EXTREMISM" IS A COPOUT
At least he used the term "violent extremism" rather than just "extremism." I'd been calling for many months for the Bush administration and then the Obama administration to stop using the term extremism as if being extremely good is somehow bad. "Violent extremism" though is a copout. Violence period is bad. What Obama has done is just twist the evil into a new shape of evil words. We aren't against just extreme violence. We're against all violence, including all things Pentagon. Do you hear that, Mister Obama? I'm sure you do. You won't take it head on though will you? You'll have minions go about it indirectly and cowardly.
OBAMA IS WRONG: OUR DIFFERENCES ARE WHAT SIGNIFY
"It's easier to see what is different about someone than to find the things we share." Wrong. The most difficult thing in the world for most people is seeing what separates righteousness from evil and separating from it.
Get this: It's not what we have in common that's good. It's what we have that's good that is good.
Those who don't have it are not of us, says Jesus Christ. Jesus is right. Obama is wrong.
OBAMA IS WRONG: THE GOLDEN RULE IS NOT AT THE HEART OF EVERY RELIGION
"There's one rule that lies at the heart of every religion — that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us." Wrong again. Not all religions believe this. Some Satanists believe the exact opposite.
OBAMA IS WRONG: THE CHRISTIAN GOLDEN RULE IS UNDERSTOOD ONLY IN LIGHT OF THE NEW COMMANDMENT
"This truth transcends nations and peoples — a belief that isn't new; that isn't black or white or brown; that isn't Christian or Muslim or Jew." Well, your writers aren't Christian. The Christian version of the Golden Rule is not the same as the Muslim or Jewish or Confucian or any other version because it's understood in light of the New Commandment to love one another as Jesus loved and still loves his closest disciples. It's giving up one's life on the cross, in torture, in agony, for love of truth and God is that truth.
OBAMA IS WRONG: NO COVER-UP FOR MOHAMMED
"I consider it part of my responsibility as president of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."
Does that mean that we aren't to say that Mohammed was what he was (which was a caravan raider, slave trader, pedophile or any other truth about him that repulses)? If that's what it means, keep it to yourself Barack. I'm not interested in helping you to cover up for Mohammed any more than I'm interested in your cover-up of 9-11 and all the Bush-regime (father and son and family) crimes, not that I don't want them to turn and to repent. I do. I don't call down the wrath.
OBAMA IS WRONG: AMERICAN IS A MILITARY, CRONY-CAPITALIST EMPIRE; SELFISH!
"America is not the crude stereotype of a self-interested empire." Oh, what a lie! America has shed blood around the world to open capitalist markets to dominate to become richer and richer off the backs of the poor and the land resources of others. Once the domestic areas were nearly spent, it looked outward to devour even more. Bush repeated over and over "self interest." It was a mantra. It has been for a long time, long before George W. Bush.
What are you doing Obama, excusing the Reagan death squads of Central America just the way you're looking the other way on all the recent torture and war crimes and other crimes against international and American law?
I could go on and on citing examples of America setting up brutal dictators just so the U.S. could then economically exploit the region.
Either you are the biggest dupe in the world, Barack, or you are the top propagandist for the plutocracy. Oh, you're a dupe alright, but you know it.
OBAMA IS WRONG: COMPARING THE U.S. TO THE WAY IT COULD BE
"The United States has been one of the greatest sources of progress that the world has ever known." Progress? What progress? Oh, what do you have for speech writers, a convenient mix of libertarian capitalists with neocons? You don't have a populist on the team. Are you gong to get one of those now just to mix in a little of that too?
Everywhere you look where the U.S. has gone in with its neoliberalism, pain and suffering has been increased or ignored for the poorest of the poor. What about comparing the U.S. to the way it could be?
The United States of America and its Constitution don't hold a candle to the Christian Commons and the Gospel of Jesus. I don't mean the Reconstructionists' false-Gospel. I mean the real one where all your poverty and systemic unemployment and foreclosures and pollution and torture and spying and the rest doesn't happen.
I mean where there are no banks, no money, no interest, no debt, no charges, no taxes, no slavery, but only real peace, giving and sharing all, and sexual harmlessness. You don't find that but in the New Commandment.
OBAMA IS WRONG: NOTHING SACRED ABOUT RELIGIOUS DIVERSITY
"The richness of religious diversity must be upheld." No it mustn't. There's nothing sacred about religious diversity. There's nothing rich in it. There's no inherent value in it at all. In fact, it's the opposite of the true treasure of which Jesus speaks, as I just outlined a bit above: freedom from evil.
There is only one way to Heaven. It is through the strait gate and along the narrow way. Those things are understood only by way of the words and deeds of Jesus. It's a fact.
Religious diversity has been nothing but a source of tribulation and travail. Only real Christianity holds the ultimate solution. Other religions share much in common with Christianity, but again, it isn't what we have in common that signifies. It's what separates Christianity from other religions that signifies. Once nothing separates, we will be one with God.
Again, we are opposed to coercion. Yet, Obama violently (violent extremism) coerces. He bombs people while preaching this dung.
OBAMA IS WRONG: HE'S TALKING ABOUT FALSE-LIBERALISM
"We can't disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism." He's talking about a false-liberalism. He's not talking about the real liberalism that is inherent in the name: Real Liberal Christian Church, where all four words are synonymous.
OBAMA IS WRONG: HOLOCAUST DENIAL IS FOR BEATING AROUND THE BUSH ON BOTH SIDES
"Six million Jews were killed — more than the entire Jewish population of Israel today. Denying that fact is baseless, it is ignorant, and it is hateful." An estimated six million were killed, just as an estimated twenty million Russians were killed. It is right to reject those who say no Jews were killed. It is wrong to have laws saying that no one may research the numbers. If some people who hate the Jews research the numbers, it does not mean that researching the numbers ought to be illegal. Maybe seven million were killed. Maybe five million were killed. How many have been killed in Iraq? The official U.S. number is unknown, but numbers from 30 to 100 thousand are common. However, other studies suggest more than a million. Is it to be illegal to research it? Is it anti-American? Some fascists think so. Obama dances around the issue for fear of facing Ahmadinejad head on about it. It's no way to the truth.
OBAMA IS WRONG: VILE STEREOTYPES, TRICKY, SLIPPERY TERM
Threatening Israel with destruction — or repeating vile stereotypes about Jews — is deeply wrong, and only serves to evoke in the minds of Israelis this most painful of memories while preventing the peace that the people of this region deserve.
Some people threaten. Some people are misquoted. "Vile stereotypes" is a tricky term. Stereotyping is lumping everyone together. It's saying all Jews this or all Jews that about something negative, such as war mongers or fascists. War mongers and fascists are vile. Some Jews are war mongers and fascists. Not all Jews are war mongers or fascists. Many Jews are anti-war and anti-fascist. Some Jews are vile by virtue of the rotten fruit they bring forth. Other Jews are not vile by virtue of their peacemaking work, even loving those who despitefully use them.
Stop dancing around Obama. Your speech writers stink.
OBAMA IS WRONG: HE'S PAYING LIP SERVICE AND WILL CAVE; IT'S THE PLAN
It is also undeniable that the Palestinian people — Muslims and Christians — have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than 60 years they've endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations — large and small — that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: The situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. And America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own.
Okay, now make good on it! Talk is cheap. Cut the lip service. He won't.
OBAMA IS WRONG: HE CAN'T IMPOSE ONLY WHERE HIS BOSSES THE PLUTOCRATS DON'T WANT HIM TO
"We cannot impose peace." Oh, you don't have any problem imposing yourself for all sorts of other things such as oil pipelines and blowing off the tops of mountains to get at thin seams of filthy coal. That's just the tip of the iceberg.
You don't seem to be prevented in your heart from sending predator drones and proxy (bought and paid for Pakistani soldiers) to create 3 million more war refugees.
Make up your mind, are you the most powerful person in the world or not? You wanted to be President. How do like it, or are you just looking forward to the mega-million book deals and speeches?
How does he dare to call himself a Christian. Does he have any respect for God?
What we aren't going to do is pray a curse on him. We aren't going to do some stupid, antichrist, calling down the wrath, imprecatory prayer.
The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
