Obama as God’s Instrument

I first endeavored to write this essay in order to validate for myself what I believed - from an inescapably finite vantage point - to be a most salient principle behind God’s unsearchable providence. The principle I speak of is embodied in the Almighty’s own caveat that he aims to exalt those who humble themselves, and humble those who exalt themselves.

What have we done to ourselves, - And why?

Many Americans have been convinced for some time that Obama is a closet Islamic.  After reading the headlines in the January 22, 2009 Fox News First 100 days of the Presidency “Obama is expected to sign ‘several’ executive orders Thursday, directing the CIA to close secret foreign prisons and Guantanamo Bay, and limiting detention and interrogation methods” he has given more credence to these convictions.  He is apparently making it softer and easier for Islamic/Muslims to damage the United States.

The Rise of 21st Century Anti-Semitism

America has just thrown one of the world’s biggest parties, rejoicing with good reason at the fall of the racial barrier to the White House. But bigotry ebbs and flows on many fronts, and a question for President Obama as he takes up his responsibilities as leader of the free world is whether he will now champion—or at least strive to protect—another minority whose members are today the targets of resurgent prejudice.

Promises Made, Promises to Fear

Promises are the currency of politics and politicians have been making them from the time that people banded together in tribes for a common purpose. The purpose of the politician, however, is always the same; to gain power and to stay in power.

Pelosi’s Post-Partisanship War Crimes Tribunal

imageNancy P.D.A. Pelosi, 60th Speaker of the House and second in the line of presidential succession behind Vice President Joe Biden, made it clear in an exclusive interview with Stoos Views today that heads will roll now that the new administration has taken over Washington. But, at least some of them will belong to Democrats. Heeding President Obama’s Inaugural Address, in which he pledged an end to partisanship, she told Stoos Views that, while she is eager to prosecute former President George Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney for “war crimes,” her witch-hunt will at least be non-partisan.

Pop Quiz: Inauguration Media Coverage

- Satire -

Although I was (thankfully) able to avoid most of the Obamania celebrations broadcast by the liberal media on January 20, there were circumstances beyond my control that left me vulnerable a few times throughout the dreary day.

Oprah’s Secret and the Law of Attraction

Just a few short years ago, there was a fledgling little book/ DVD called The Secret that promised that anything you wanted would become a reality if you just simply thought about it. This Secret, also called the Law of Attraction, states that whatever you want from the universe would be attracted to the energy of your thoughts and become a reality.

Obama Suspends Guantanamo Bay Commissions

And so it begins—President Barack Hussein Obama’s terrorism war strategy. Looks like he kept the right guy in place as the Secretary of Defense, although, in my humble opinion, Robert Gates was never gung-ho about fighting terrorists. Which may be why Obama kept him onboard.

Include me out

It’s numbing. The adulation, the elation, the mirth, the idolatry, the reveling in every possible facet of Obamaness. And that’s just the response of the mainstream media.

Rahm Emanuel - SmalldealanimalsOn this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics. We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things.

Running and Ruining America for the Benefit of China

On CNN on January 16, Lou Dobbs, perhaps the most honest and outspoken major media commentator, told the truth about the Wall Street bailout. “Treasury Secretary Paulson basically used the money to bail out his buddies on Wall Street, and don’t let anybody kid you,” he said.

Barack InSane Obama And Community Organizer Mentality

In spite of all the warning signals and the evidence of his underlying intentions to strip away the foundational dictates of the hundreds-year-old United States Constitution, the awful deed is done and Barack Hussein Obama is the new American President who claims he has received a mandate from the people to govern. Shall we be silenced and further overtaken by him as a nation?

The Military-Corporate Legacy of the New Secretary of Education

- Andy Kroll

On December 16th, a friendship forged nearly two decades ago on the hardwood of the basketball court culminated in a press conference at the Dodge Renaissance Academy, an elementary school located on the west side of Chicago. In a glowing introduction to the media, President-elect Barack Obama named Arne Duncan, the chief executive officer of the Chicago Public Schools system (CPS), as his nominee for U.S. Secretary of Education. “When it comes to school reform,” the President-elect said, “Arne is the most hands-on of hands-on practitioners. For Arne, school reform isn’t just a theory in a book — it’s the cause of his life. And the results aren’t just about test scores or statistics, but about whether our children are developing the skills they need to compete with any worker in the world for any job.”

A Crisis Too Great to Waste

- Jeff Lukens

So Barack Obama proposes massive government spending like we have never seen before as our way back to economic prosperity. Yet wasn’t it a mountain of unpayable debt that got us into this financial crisis in the first place? The rivers of red ink he proposes would make FDR and LBJ blush. This approach may have worked politically for FDR and LBJ, but neither time did it work economically for the country. It may work politically for Obama too, but deficit spending will not work economically today either.
