A messiah, at least in the Christian sense, is not only supposed to lead people out of bondage and oppression, but to take away their guilt and past sins. Obama was, in effect, anointed by the majority of American voters to absolve their guilt over our great national sin of slavery (and later, racial segregation). But instead of cleansing us of our national guilt, Obama and his administration, especially his attorney general, Eric Holder, cynically magnified and enlarged our guilt, using it as a weapon to confuse, confound and divide us, to neutralize patriots and critics, all for the unholy purpose of amassing ever more power.
Today, after six years as president, it’s become clear that not only is Obama not a messiah, he’s arguably the worst, most dishonest, incompetent, anti-American president in U.S. history. His radical-left administration has caused tremendous harm not just to the nation’s constitutional system of government, its economy, security and culture – but to its national soul. That’s because, to “fundamentally transform” a uniquely great nation like America into just one more pathetic redistributionist welfare state presided over by an all-powerful nanny government, the American people must be seduced into becoming less independent and less moral than they once were, they mustn’t trust in God quite as much as they once did, they must become less rugged and resilient, less logical and competent, less principled and courageous than they once were.
This, alas, is the true legacy of the Obama presidency – the degradation and demoralization of America.

At this point, Barack Obama finally came out and weighed in on this attack. With his usual rhetoric, he condemned it, vowed to get to the bottom of it and then prepared for his two week Hawaiian vacation. There was no outrage, no stern warnings to North Korea, no mention of any type of retaliation at all. He casually said that they were weighing options and something would be done. I won’t hold my breath.
All of Obama’s Hollywood buddies must have stood in astonishment as he threw them under the bus, saying that they never should have “caved” on yanking the film from distribution. He continued to say that they should have called him first, which, according to them, they did. But, he didn’t know about that call because he never knows anything that is going on in his administration.

Instead of focusing on the deplorable and self-inflicted economic and social choices of black Americans, further foisted upon them for decades by Democrats such as President Obama, blacks are being conned into believing that racism is what is holding them back instead of suicidal choices. What a con job.
There’s blood on the hands of black racists, elected idiots, vacuous pawns and our national propaganda ministry. Your change has come, Mr. Holder. How’s that working out for you?

But by now a solid majority of Americans recognizes the Obama era as what it all along promised to be – a time in which Americans choose to break decisively with the course of their promising history, a time of judgment in which we “like sheep have gone astray, everyone to his own way,” doing what is right in our own eyes and forsaking the goodwill of respect for right from which our nation took root.
From warring against dictatorship it seems that some of us have become a people ready to welcome the false promises of dictatorial rule, even going so far as to decry those who plainly take for granted what the evidence of our eyes and minds makes clear to us every day, as if indignantly rejecting the truth of their passive betrayal of the heritage of liberty can perfume the stinking reality of their abject surrender of that heritage.

The “emperor in chief,” President Barack Hussein Obama, has struck again. His appointed judge, the Honorable Beryl Howell of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, issued a ruling on the eve of Christmas eve dismissing the lawsuit Freedom Watch and I, on behalf of Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, filed against Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and the immigration enforcement arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. This case challenged what even the emperor confessed, over 22 times in the past, would be an unconstitutional grab of power if he unilaterally took executive actions, bypassing Congress’ legislative prerogative, to modify the current immigration laws, which require that illegal aliens generally be deported, rather than be granted what is referred to as “deferred action.

Imagine how bad off America would be if Barack Obama had a work ethic.
Do you ever think about that?
