Why I 'm Thanking God for Obama. (They must Glorify his image because in reality, his resume is void.)
Why I'm Thanking God for Obama
By Kyle-Anne Shiver

Every day, for the past several months, I've made a habit in my morning prayers of thanking God for the emergence of Barack Obama. Not because my hope is in Obama, but because my hope is always, unequivocally in God.

As so many have noted, 2008 is not an ordinary American election.

Rather than two people with different policy positions vying for the President's job, we have one man who understands he's a mere mortal like the rest of us, and one man, who seems to think he is a god.

And y'all know what I'm talkin' about here.

Many of Barack's followers manifest troubling signs of regarding him as at least a demigod. Even while refraining from saying outright that they think he's a god, their belief comes through in the strange messianic iconography of their Obama-glorifying posters, videos and music. Belief in the godlike nature of Barack's powers comes through in their faith in the vast promises he or his surrogates make about the change that's going to come about, not if, but when he becomes president, not just of our Country, but the whole darned world, oceans and all. Or so he seems to think.

The seas will recede. The planet will heal. Everyone will love America again. The sick will all be cured by socialized medicine. The poor will cease to exist. The rich will give all their money to Africa. The government will become efficient. Sin won't happen. The yellow brick road will lead to the White House, not a fantasy land. And the Emperor's clothes will suddenly materialize so that the whole world will actually see something there.

The bottom line here is that Barack Obama does not seem to be running against John McCain. He seems to think he's too big for that. As he told a roomful of Congressional Democrats this week, behind closed doors, he is no longer a mere man, he's "become a symbol of the possibility of America." Considering the scope of the promises he is making and the hope he is offering not only America, but the rest of the world to boot, Barack Obama seems to be running against a far higher power than himself.

Barack Obama actually appears to be running against God. By claiming that he can do things only God can do, like heal "broken souls" and fill up "holes" in people's hearts, make all "divisions" go away and disperse with all inconvenient "distractions," Barack Obama claims power that no mortal man, and certainly no mere president has ever had, or ever will have, no matter how much money he has to spend or how brilliant or how able he may be.

Most rational human beings know this without thinking hard.

That's why this isn't an ordinary election, and why it is becoming more absurd by the hour.

But this is a terrific opportunity for all of us mortal Americans who still love this Country and happen to think that our Founders were onto something quite exceptional in the history of human civilization. This election will not pit Democrats against Republicans, but those who love America against those who just love Barack and think he is the one they've been waiting for to finally close the deal and secure their love for an America perfected by the politics of Barack Obama.

Utopian Claims that Materialize as Misery

For years now, I've occasionally fallen victim to discouragement over strides the rainbow Marxists have made in America and around the world. The Berlin Wall was barely in its shallow grave before communism's sepulchral cries of resurgence began to be heard in places far and near. The Soviet Block was barely broken before western Europeans began doing their best to emulate it and enshrine another form of it's tyranny by binding treaty.

The greatest single Marxist victory has been the systematic re-write of the movement's own bloody history, carried out by leftists in America and western Europe. After WWII, Hitler's Germany was scrubbed clean of its National Socialist underpinnings, and entire generations have been told that Fascism was the polar opposite of Communism. For the past eight years, with the new resurgence of American conservatism, leftists have bombarded the public from sympathetic press pulpits and university lecterns with their "Bush is Hitler" agitprop. And a great many fools have swallowed this lie whole hog.

As Pope Benedict foretold in 2003, in his treatise on the sleeping ambitions of worldwide communism:

"Let us not forget that Marxism, as the one great political force of our twentieth century, made its appearance with the claim to be bringing a new world of freedom and of free people. This very promise of knowing the scientifically guaranteed way to freedom, and of creating the new world, drew to it many of the boldest spirits of our age; ultimately it even appeared as the force through which the Christian teaching of redemption could be transformed into a realistic practical means for liberation - as the force that could bring the Kingdom of God as the true kingdom of men. The collapse of realist socialism in the East European states has not quite laid aside all such hopes, and here and there they still subsist, silently awaiting some new form."
-- Pope Benedict XVI; Truth and Tolerance; p. 233; emphases mine.

Just because this monstrous system puts on a new and younger face does not render it more benign.

Empty Resume, Empty Promises

Obama has arisen from nothingness, from one accomplishment-free political gig to another, propped up by leftists adulators and sycophants, to offer a perfect portrait of socialism's eternal snare. Forget God; put your hope in mankind. Human arrogance and narcissistic pride. From the fall in the Garden to the present, from generation to generation, Satan's delusion holds sway with many.

Barack Obama is walking, talking, breathing narcissism. The iconography of his campaign is nothing, if not the glorification of Obama, a solitary, quite mortal man. They must glorify Obama's image because, in reality, he has no accomplishments that bear mention.


Obama struts his nothingness with grace; even his detractors admit that.

What could more openly and more amply demonstrate the absolute emptiness of socialism's promise than the perfectly empty resume of its newest hero?

What could possibly more adequately prove the personalized utopianism of his followers than that they believe in a man who has borne no fruitful action?

Barack Obama offers "collective salvation" in the form of socialist government interventions in every sphere of life, from starting-at-birth state education, to socialized, universal health care, to a tripling of the already failing AmeriCorps. This socialist answer to all that ails mankind isn't anything new. It's old, tried, and just as untrue now as in its beginning.

Beware the man who promises what man simply lacks the power to bestow.

"The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule it."
-- H. L. Mencken


Time and time and time again, this has proven true. Time and time again, new men arise in varying disguise, making the same promises, urging the same change.

God or Barack? This ain't rocket science.

The lesson in socialism's long, failed and scandalous history is actually very simple, I think, not rocket science at all.

Life, as God created it, is basically unfair.

Beginning at the very reality that each human being is unique, without exact duplication anywhere, anytime. Even in the case of identical twins, uniqueness begins at the moment of birth, as each twin experiences a separate reality in his or her environment. With uniqueness comes individuality and at every moment of life, unfairness.

No matter the measure one chooses, whether genetic beauty or physical strength, native intelligence or agility, inherited wealth or power, the benefits bestowed by one's parents or the lack of these. In every single aspect of human life, no matter where one is born or what happens thereafter outside one's control, life is not fair.

I perceive that within the heart of every socialist lies an insurmountable resentment over this basic fact, which is always aimed squarely at God, who made things this way. Arrogant man wants to be like God and design things his own way.

Two thousand years ago, however, Jesus of Nazareth offered the eternal solution to the paradox of unfairness and inequality:

Speaking of God's judgment, Jesus said,

From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required; and from the one to whom much has been entrusted, even more will be demanded.
-- The Gospel of Luke 12:48 (New Revised Standard Version)

All who follow the same God, whether Jewish or Christian, see plainly that God's judgment has nothing whatsoever to do with one's station or gifts in this life, but only with what each individual does with what he is given.

It is certainly no accident that socialism has made its greatest advances among secular people, divorced from God by their own choice, and that today in America, it is the progressive secularists, the hardened socialists and communists, and many radical elements in our society that back Barack Obama's rise. For many of these people, hope in God died long ago.

The salvation that Obama offers comes in the form of radically changing America to a utopian state, which he contends will fix our "broken souls." That simply is not within the province of his abilities.

As Pope Benedict has so wisely and emphatically stated:

Wherever politics tries to be redemptive, it is promising too much. Where it wishes to do the work of God, it becomes, not divine, but demonic.
-- Truth and Tolerance; p. 116


Barack Obama stands front and center now, offering the age-old false promise that mankind can save itself through "collective redemption," and simply because he employs Christian language and symbols, no genuine lovers of God will be fooled.

Hope in God?

Or hope in Obama?

I thank God every day for giving us Americans such a clear and easy choice. Perhaps He is simply using Barack Obama to separate a bit of chaff from the grain.

Yes this is a brilliant piece, and a must read for those who wish to understand this man's philosophical leanings. In that regard I will leave you with a quote from Jesse Jackson, Jr., Obama's campaign manager, which clearly shows how Obama's delusional supporters view him as the coming Messiah, and how they are promoting him as such:


Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), son of the one-time presidential contender, said Obama’s victory overwhelmed him.

“I cried all night. I’m going to be crying for the next four years,” he said. “What Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation’s political history. ... The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance.”

More crap from the resident racist idiot.

The piece was not brilliant. It was dreck. Hyperbole and rhetoric that shows how unhinged the bigots in this country can be when they are faced with the fear of having a non-white man in power.

Obama's followers view him as a demi-god? What a load of crap. If you were not such a pathetic little piece of shit PAC, you would have the honor and integrity not to cut and paste these lies over and over. But as we all know - you are a sad excuse for a man.

Excerpts from a letter in the Journal Gazette - Charleston, IL

[link to www.jg-tc.com]

LETTER: Barack's appeal is actually messianic

By STEVE DAVIS, Charleston


....I have been examining the Obama phenomenon myself, and have concluded, at least for myself, a Midwestern white male, that Barack’s appeal is actually messianic, it’s something about his aura, his spirit, his soul, that exudes enlightenment in the making.

..... for reasons I can’t fully articulate, he is one of those individuals who communicates God-like energy (metaphorically speaking), in whom you can “feel” God.

Now, I’m using the term “God” to mean the loving, honest, just, and inspiring part of the force behind it all. You may not believe something’s behind it all, but I do. And I look for God constantly — that which exudes love, integrity, humility, depth, kindness, generosity — and more ... supposedly.

.......I’m taking a special look at Barack Obama because he’s a lot closer to a Jesus-type than the other candidates, by quite a bit. What if God decided to incarnate as men preaching “hope and change.” And what if we didn’t recognize them, because we are so dull, and let them slip away, not availing ourselves of the opportunity to be led by God!

So you can imagine why even a white male like myself would be interested in a candidate “talking” the way Barack is talking. For those of you who are confused, what Barack is saying is in line with what God him/her/itself would say.

Fundamentally, the similarities between Obamian hope and biblical hope are extraordinary, striking and intriguing. Like biblical hope, Obamian hope inspires the United States of America and the world.

Africa: Obama Must Tame America for the Continent of His Ancestors

The Monitor (Kampala)

ANALYSIS
20 February 2008
Posted to the web 19 February 2008

Okello Oculi



His presidency could, besides pursuing a pro-African foreign policy, influence US transnational corporations, the Military Industrial Complex and scientific institutions to be fair to the continent, writes Okello Oculi, Daily Monitor Correspondent in Nigeria.................

Obama has come as rain from a Kenyan cloud that seeded in the plains of Iowa and fell in Hawaii, but refuses to be tied down as just another "black candidate" pushing primarily for the restoration of justice for African-Americans by reminding white America of its guilt.

Instead, he insists on the freedom of a collective American Messiah who has come to mobilise all disillusioned children of American democracy to open up a new frontier in politics. This is Obama's venture of building hope using the power of hope.

Like rain, Obama must rouse new winds that will blow away drought, which drought will not depart without a fight. The first facet of the drought he must shove aside is the old establishment African-American politicians like Andrew Young in Atlanta and Charles Randle in New York whose powers rest on being called to the White House to carry forth addresses to black church congregations and assemblies of The National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP).

The prospect of a black man as the president of the most powerful country in the world is like a deluge that would wash away all the centuries of decay that slavery (which took millions of people from Africa) brought. Against this school of thought are those who are miffed by a sense of historic cheating that Kenya would achieve by being the African country from which this historic Obama has popped from..........


High expectations

....Obama's African ancestry is seen to hold great potentialities. For one, it holds the promise of a return to the truncated will of Africa's peoples to re-domocratise a western world..........

Muhammar Gaddafi's dream of being crowned Africa's first emperor continues to serve the useful purpose of keeping alive, to a new generation of Africans, the old dream of Kwame Nkrumah's generation for creating a United States of Africa.

Barack Obama is uniquely placed to support the fruition of this dream knowing, as he now does, the sublime challenges of conducting political rain on a scale as grand, in terrestrial and human space, as the United States of America. May his rain come down to sprout a Union of Africa. To which some Nigerians say "Amen."
