“Yes, Barack Obama Really is a Manchurian Candidate” by David Kupelian

Thursday, October 30th, 2008

“If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” – Abraham Lincoln

As Election Day rapidly approaches, many Americans are wondering why so many of their countrymen reject a genuine war hero with decades of experience, one whose pro-life, limited-government values pretty much reflect those of Middle America. Instead, these same countrymen are enthralled with a man who not only has no experience or qualifications for the job, but who is, in fact, the most radically left-wing major-party presidential candidate of our lifetime, having been mentored and supported for decades by terrorists (Ayers), communists (Davis), America-hating racists (Wright) and criminals (Rezko).

Doesn’t make much sense, does it?

After all, in past presidential contests, Americans have flatly rejected ultraliberal candidates like McGovern, Mondale and Dukakis – and those guys weren’t nearly as radicalized as Obama, who the nonpartisan National Journal rates as having the most left-wing voting record in the entire U.S. Senate – even more so than socialist Bernie Sanders! Moreover, recently it’s been proven, despite his campaign’s denials, that Obama was indeed a member of the socialist “New Party.” And Obama himself confesses that during his college days he intentionally sought out Marxists as friends.

So, how do we explain all this? Why are so many of us eager to turn our nation, the greatest and noblest on earth, over to an angry-at-America, hardcore left-wing “change agent” who will – with the help of a like-minded, Democrat-dominated Congress and a liberal-activist federal judiciary – bring about radical “change” to every area of our lives? Just consider:

  • Obama is the most pro-abortion presidential candidate in history, having announced publicly: “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.” This would remove all restrictions on abortion, including partial-birth abortion and parental notification laws, making America the abortion capital of the world. Of course, you know what kind of Supreme Court justices he would nominate, which as I have pointed out previously would end all hope of overturning Roe v. Wade in our lifetimes.
  • He’s hands-down the most pro-homosexual candidate in history, promising to back virtually the entire radical “gay rights” agenda, including the complete repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act, essentially throwing open the door to gay marriage in all 50 states. And, as he proclaims in his “open letter to the LGBT community”: “I have also called for us to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” That will allow and encourage overt homosexuality throughout the armed forces, something military experts have long maintained will destroy the very fabric of America’s armed services.
  • Sounds bad for Judeo-Christian values, you say? Dr. James Dobson’s influential Focus on the Family organization analyzed issue after issue and predicts – are you ready for this? – “hardship,” “persecution” and “suffering” as the fate of Christians if Obama becomes president.
  • Obama “would be the most anti-gun president in American history,” warns the National Rifle Association, which points out that he has supported a complete ban on handguns, voted to ban most rifle ammunition, and supported increasing the tax on guns by 500 percent.
  • Obama would devastate an already deeply troubled U.S. economy. Jacking up taxes, as he promises to do, during the worst financial crisis and credit meltdown since the Great Depression is breathtakingly foolish. No wonder three out of four CEOs of American companies say Obama would be a disaster. Apparently Obama, who constantly badmouths “CEOs” and “corporations,” doesn’t realize it is these very companies that create over 120 million of America’s 140 million jobs (the rest being created by government).
  • In order to throttle the troublesome talk radio truth-tellers who caused him so much trouble during the election season, and to reward his cheerleaders in the elite press, Obama will attempt to muzzle conservative talk radio by resurrecting the horrendous “Fairness Doctrine.”
  • Obama alone will be able to snatch defeat from the jaws of certain victory in Iraq. He is so weak, inexperienced and narcissistic, he will reflexively appease our nation’s enemies and thereby encourage the growth of evil the world over. Millions will suffer as a direct result.
  • Then there’s the issue of Obama’s truly disturbing past. It seems that no matter how stunning the revelations – some of which are finally emerging, no thanks to a shockingly irresponsible and infantile “mainstream press” – they don’t penetrate the public mind. Regardless of the evidence against him, people remain entranced by Obama:

  • Amidst ever-growing evidence of vote fraud in multiple states perpetrated by ACORN – the notorious left-wing group with which Obama, despite his public statements, has long and deep ties – the Obama campaign’s lawyers are now arguing that the Justice Department should not investigate any vote fraud claims until after the election. Instead, say Obama’s attorneys, Justice should investigate those citizens who have brought to light the evidence of voter fraud, for supposedly trying to intimidate poor people into not voting. And no wonder: Thirteen of Obama’s own campaign workers in Ohio have confessed to have fraudulently voted in that crucial swing state.
  • Despite repeated indignant denials by the candidate and his campaign, Barack Obama was once a Muslim. If you question that fact as just a nasty “Internet rumor,” examine for yourself Obama’s registration papers to the Catholic school he attended in Indonesia, reproduced here by the Associated Press, which clearly indicate his religion at the time as “Islam.” Much more troubling are the radical Islamist ties he maintains today, as respected Islam expert Daniel Pipes documents. Even rabid anti-Semite and leader of the radical Nation of Islam group, Louis Farrakhan, says “the Messiah is absolutely speaking” through Obama.
  • Which brings us to his most troubling association of all: Obama sat in the church pews for 20 years listening to and absorbing the anti-American, racist, hate-filled sermons of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who claims, among his other lunatic rants, that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks and deliberately created AIDS in order to commit genocide against black people. Wright’s rage-filled preaching of “black liberation theology” – an anti-American, anti-White, Marxist philosophy disguised as Christianity – filled Obama’s mind and soul for two decades, and they have unquestionably influenced his worldview.

    Sitting at the feet of Jeremiah Wright for two decades and being filled each week with such venom against America and white people can fairly be called a form of brainwashing. If you doubt this statement, try spending 30-60 minutes on YouTube and just listen to random video clips of Wright’s “sermons.” Then, imagine swallowing this poisonous concoction, in person, every week for 20 years. It would be transformative.

  • One can go on and on, it’s dizzying: Obama worked closely – for years – with William Ayers, a criminal and domestic terrorist who once bombed the Pentagon and other government buildings; there’s absolutely compelling evidence – including independent scientific forensic analysis – showing that Ayers wrote all or part of Obama’s best selling book “Dreams from My Father”; Obama received crucial funding and other financial benefits from notorious convicted Chicago criminal Tony Rezko; the Obama campaign refuses to produce a simple birth certificate to dispel persistent claims in multiple lawsuits that question the candidate’s constitutional qualifications to be U.S. president – it goes on and on, and yet inexplicably, none of it seems to penetrate the minds of those entranced with Obama.
  • So again, the question: Why, despite a mountain of evidence utterly proving his profound unworthiness to be president, do so many millions of Americans worship Barack Obama? Let’s take a closer look.

    Archaeologists Report Finding Oldest Hebrew Text

    Thursday, October 30th, 2008

    God continues to reveal Himself through archaeology.

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Archaeologists in Israel said on Thursday they had unearthed the oldest Hebrew text ever found, while excavating a fortress city overlooking a valley where the Bible says David slew Goliath.

    Experts have not yet been able to decipher fully the five lines of text written in black ink on a shard of pottery dug up at a five-acre (two-hectare) archaeological site called Elah Fortress, or Khirbet Qeiyafa.

    The Bible says David, later to become the famed Jewish king, killed Goliath, a Philistine warrior, in a battle in the Valley of Elah, now the site of wineries and an Israeli satellite station.

    Archaeologists at Hebrew University said carbon dating of artifacts found at the fortress site, about 20 km (12 miles) southwest of Jerusalem, indicate the Hebrew inscription was written some 3,000 years ago, predating the Dead Sea Scrolls by 1,000 years.

    They have been able to make out some of its words, including “judge,” “slave” and “king.”

    Yosef Garfinkel, the lead archaeologist at the site, said the findings could shed significant light on the period of King David’s rule over the Israelites.

    “The chronology and geography of Khirbet Qeiyafa create a unique meeting point between the mythology, history, historiography and archaeology of King David,” Garfinkel said.

    “A Coming American Third World Despotism?” by Erick Erickson

    Thursday, October 30th, 2008

    In East Asia, South America, and Africa third world despots run kleptocracies and routinely use government to harass, bully, and intimidate their opponents. It is a standard Marxist practice of Robert Mugabe, Hugo Chavez, Karimov of Uzbekistan and their ilk. Should the American public elect Barack Obama President, we are already getting a glimpse of what his administration would be like.

    In Missouri, Democrat party officials who also serve as prosecutors and sheriffs have threatened to arrest and try any person who “misrepresents” Barack Obama. Thus far there have been no arrests or prosecutions relating to people innocently mentioning an email that suggested Obama is a closet Muslim. Thus far.

    In Ohio, Joe Wurzelbacher a/k/a Joe the Plumber happened to be standing in his front yard one morning when Barack Obama decided on an impromptu photo op. There in the plumber’s yard the fairy tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes” sprang to life. Barack Obama told Joe the Obama administration would “spread the wealth around.” Like the child pointing out the emperor’s nakedness, Joe pointed out Obama’s socialism and it clicked with people.

    Naturally, Joe had to be destroyed. The Ohio press is reporting Democrat officials improperly accessed government data about Joe the Plumber in order to smear him on behalf of the Obama campaign. (Thankfully, because the rule of law still exists in Ohio, the person who improperly searched government data may, according to reports yesterday, be prosecuted.) But Joe’s DMV records were looked at, his tax records were looked at, and his child support records were looked at. None of the looking was legal, but it did not matter. Joe became a threat that had to be destroyed.

    Also in Ohio, student reporters for a collegiate news service are getting harassed by Barack Obama’s legal team. The reporters discovered wholesale voter fraud in Ohio, documented it, and reported it. Next thing they knew. Barack Obama’s lawyers decided to threaten them and suggested the students would have their voter registrations questioned if they did not stop.

    The Obama Infomercial

    Thursday, October 30th, 2008

    You’ve seem them pushing weight loss, kitchen utensils and OxyClean. Last night, you may have see the latest infomercial; this one peddling a candidate for President of the United States of America.
    Obama used some of his illegal campaign contributions and bought himself an infomercial.
    The infomercial was full of typical Obama things, people who foolishly took out sub-prime adjustable mortgages and are whining about their payments, people who feel flooded in bills (that would be all of us – welcome to life), people who want free education and people who want, want and want.
    Not only was it an infomercial selling a candidate for president, it was an infomercial selling socialism and entitlement.

    WASHINGTON — In a campaign ad aired at a cost of millions, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama promised a rescue plan for the middle class in tough times Wednesday night as he reached for victory in his 21-month quest for the presidency.

    “I will not be a perfect president,” Obama said in the commercial. “But I can promise you this — I will always tell you what I think and where I stand.”

    Aides described the unusual ad as a final summation of Obama’s campaign. They put the total cost at roughly $4 million, enough to show it simultaneously on CBS, NBC and Fox. It also was running on BET, Univision, MSNBC and TV One.

    Republican John McCain derided the event as a “gauzy, feel-good commercial,” paid for with broken promises.

    Across 30 minutes, the commercial blended views of Obama speaking in a setting that resembled the Oval Office, at the Democratic National Convention and elsewhere as well as scenes of Americans discussing their economic and health care troubles, and testimonials to the Democratic presidential candidate by politicians and business executives.

    Obama’s “Civilian National Security Force”

    Thursday, October 30th, 2008

    This is more of Obama’s socialist agenda. I see this move as a serious attack against our freedoms and our privacy. He promises to fund this force equally with our military. The question has been raised: just what does he intend to do with this “national security force”? Would he command it? Who would it answer to?
    This is really scary stuff folks!! I’m not trying to an alarmist here, but please wake up and see what we stand to loose if this guy is elected!!

    “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set,” [Obama] said. “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”
