Democrats boasted Clinton was the "first Black President", in the same haughty spirit is Obama the "first Afircan President"?
Will the D&C Impeach or Deport Obama to run Hilary for 2012?
If the latter, will the S.S. help him fill out his Immigration Paperwork?

He DOES owe the American people an explanation for his wonton spending, lack of transparency, special interests pandering and a host of other things that if he was man enough to address, I don't believe the birth certificate would be such an issue.

Why does Brian Williams ask only creampuff questions? Here's one for Brian to ask " did you or did you not tell Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit that you ar really a (closet) Muslim." This was reported on a major Egyptian television network.

The Mainstream Media never ask the tough questions. They should ask Obama " did you tell Egyptian Foreign Affairs Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheir that you are really a Muslim" (as reported on a major Egyptian television network)?

we are soooo past this garbage. The Nordyke birth certificate nonsense again? That's what a birth certificate looked like IN 1961. If Obama had ordered one IN 1961, his would have looked exactly like that. If the Nordykes were to order one today, it would NOT look like that, it would look like Obama's, and if they had lost the one in the picture, they would never be able to get another one that did, because that's NOT WHAT HI BCs LOOK LIKE NOW, and they would be in the same boat as Obama, unable to produce anything other than one that looks like Obama's. Which is no problem, because it's THE OFFICIAL BONA FIDE ONE AND ONLY REAL HI BIRTH CERTIFICATE GOOD FOR PASSPORTS, EMPLOYMENT, DRIVER'S LICENSES, ETC.

What a missed opportunity by B. Williams.

Should it not be the job of the media to do some investigative journalism and dismiss these phony insinuations about the President instead of asking if the White House is failing in refuting the charges?

Where are the questions about what the administrations is going to do about the planetary crisis; i.e., global warming?

What about campaign finance reform and immigration reform?

It seems clear that the President is not picking up any more fights for the rest of his ters and is cowed down by the wingnuts/so-called pundits in and out of the MSM.

Obama's stated faith is irrelevant. What is relevant is his world outlook and according to his book he grew up in Indonesia and when in college he sought out the Marxist professors and radical students. Again, Obama's words. Also, Brian Williams didn't follow up and ask the simple question about his long form birth certificate with attending physician and hospital, or his withheld college records That is all people want and to characterize them with pejoratives is simply deflecting and extending the questions.

I'm trying to figure out how the same people who dismiss Obama as a socialist demand that he be a Christian.

We have freedom of religion just so long as we are Christian in our religion?

The last society that demanded lockstep Christian obedience caused a war were 20 million people died.

And those people weren't socialists, just a bunch of Nazis practicing the theology of mass liberation through death.

An since Mr. Obama is not a Christian, as you proclaim, I hope he continues to show himself to be what the Texan Christian from Crawford who used to be president was not:

Competent in the job he was elected to execute.

Posted by: ProfessorWrightBSU
_____________________

TRUST but VERIFY, is a wise saying.

It is the secrecy of the birth certificate that troubles people. The greater the obfuscation, the more suspicions are aroused.

A Republican governor validating Mr. Obama's birth certificate requires that we trust the word of that person. WHY should we?

Every American is required to produce evidence of who they are when they are asking for entrance to certain places. There are no exceptions. The requirements are proof of identification, passports, driver's license, and often, birth certificates. No less should be required of the person holding the office of the presidency.

Since answering the question has required more time than producing the certificate, it is reasonable to assume that the certificate cannot be produced. The question is "why?"

Nonetheless, Mr. Obama's Hawaii birth certificate does not qualify him for the office of the presidency. Since his father was not an American citizen, and his mother did not meet the requirements to pass along American citizenship to Mr. Obama, he is not eligible to be the president. He may have citizenship, but he is not a natural born citizen, which is the requirement for president.

The real scam was that the media kept this information from the American public. They deliberately, willfully, maliciously, and with evil intent hid the evidence of Mr. Obama's ineligibility, while supporting Mr. Obama's candidacy with their own contributions both with their money and with their coverage. They pimped themselves for Mr. Obama and for the perks they would receive for promoting him, all the while knowing that he was the "great deception" that they would play on the American public.

Now, the press, is irrelevant. They serve no useful purpose except continued propaganda. They must continue to support the "lie," because they fear exposure.

Meanwhile, Mr. Obama is destroying the country. Every day more and more destruction to the land of free and the home of the brave, which has become the land of the enslaved and the home of the spineless.

But, Beck's rally in D.C. this past weekend is a new beginning. There are people who are standing up, saying "no" to the corruption in D.C. and saying "no" to the lies that the press have fed us. There is a light shining in the darkness. And, light dispels darkness. Darkness has no power over light.

"Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?"

"He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life."

All this ranting about the President's birth certificate and his religion is crazy.

First of all, he's an American citizen because his mother was a US citizen. Second, his birth certificate has been shown. Third, he would never have made it onto the ballot if he were not. You think that stuff isn't checked out in advance?

Lastly, remember the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights? What does it say about freedom of religion? By the way, it would help if some of you who are so afraid of Muslims actually sat down and read the Koran. I have. I've also done a cursory study of it's beginnings and growth. It's just another branch of the Abrahamic religion that follows the teachings of the Abraham, Isaac, and Moses. It's probably closer to Judaism in practice than Christianity.

It's time to end the distractions and get serious about the nation's real problem: how we, as a country, move forward to restore our economy?

There is a fast growing national awareness that virtually the entire paper trail of Barack Obama's existence continues to remain deeply hidden away under a tight shroud of secrecy.

The current president's original typewritten long form birth certificate, school records, SAT and LSAT scores, college and law school admission records and grade transcripts and thesis papers, medical records, passport history and other relevant records and documents have all never been released or allowed to be subjected to any sort of scrutiny, despite several years of repeated requests for disclosure by numerous individuals and non-traditional media organizations.

The Obama 2008 campaign and subsequent administration have to date spent a considerable amount of money on legal fees to fight Freedom of Information Act filings and other requests to examine this material.

On his first full day in office, January 21, 2009, the current president signed Executive Order 13489, effectively prohibiting the release or disclosure of any of his personal records and papers without his specific authorization.

This comprehensive degree of secrecy is unprecedented in modern American political history. Every presidential candidate since Thomas Dewey in 1948 has willingly released such records and documents upon serious request, thus acknowledging that the process of running for president should be the toughest job interview on the planet. The current president is the sole exception.

A computer generated laser printed short form version of a birth certificate that a child could have forged was posted on the Obama 2008 campaign website, but it only served to intensify the filings and requests to see the original typewritten long form document. They also produced a one page letter from a physician attesting that Barack Obama was in excellent health for a man of his age. This has been the complete extent of any release or disclosure of any records or documents from the current president's past life. Virtually his entire paper trail continues to remain deeply hidden away.

The mainstream media has given Barack Obama a remarkable free pass on this basic issue of personal transparency and accountability. It has become customary in modern times for presidential candidates to allow for the release and scrutiny of the substantive body of records and documents from their pasts, indeed up until 2008 in large measure precisely because of a strong mainstream media interest. It is entirely appropriate to consider why the current president has received such a special exception from this time-honored practice. In their eagerness to "make history" by covering the campaign of the man whom they were clearly interested in helping become the first black president, the mainstream media failed in their primary national responsibility, namely to report on significant events with thoroughness and objectivity.

Americans want to know what is being hidden and why are they hiding it?

Give it a rest coolchilly.

If there was an iota of truth to any of these claims, any Republican Senator or Congressman could have made whatever information they have part of the Congressional record and forced a Congressional investigation. It hasn't happened because this is just another Limbaugh lie.

Your point about having subpoena power is a good one though. Every voter in the US needs to be reminded of the time and money Republicans wasted during the Clinton administration conducting spurious investigations.

Krugman provided a good reminder in the NYT yesterday. 140 hours of Congressional testimony taken to investigate the Clinton's christmas card list.

And as for your holier-than-thou assertion that Republicans don't accept welfare, have you ever heard of the mortgage tax deduction or the deduction on contributions to a retirement plan? How about the cap for social security payments? No doubt you, Rush, Glenn, and Sarah don't take advantage of any of these welfare benefits, do you?

While I am an Episcopalian I say that I do not care whether the President of the United Staes goes to church every sunday or not! We elect a president every 4 years not a religious leader...and thank God for that! At this point in time President Obama should just forget all these right wing born again Christian republicans who will never accept him or his presidency. Last time I read about the Mr. Obama it said he is multi racial. As a former republican(left in 1972) it is sad that the party of Einsenhowr,Warren,Rockefeller,Kemp,Percey,Dirksen,Lindsay,Javits,LaGuardia,and Dewey has been replaced with the likes of Palin,Demint,Vitter,Beck and other non thinkers.

davidsawh said, "LOL these teabagheads are just stupid and insane."

Unfortunately David, they are not all stupid and insane. Most of the people that spend their days screaming about Obama's birth certificate and claiming that he is a Muslim don't believe their own words for a minute. They are playing the same vile, cynical game they played during the Clinton administration. They throw out outrageous false claims, hope that a few people fall for the claims, and manipulate the situation to stir up hate.

Are people's memories too short to remember that Hillary Clinton was, according to the same people who are behind the Obama birth certificate lie today, a co-conspirator in a murder during Clinton's first term?

If there were a real issue with Obama's birth certificate, there would have been a Congressional investigation before the election and John McCain would be president today.

The Republican leadership should not be allowed to get away with its silence on this any longer. It is time for the press to do its job. Pick up the phone. Call every person currently serving in the House and Senate and every person campaigning for either body. Ask every one of them to answer yes or no:

1. Do you believe that Obama a US citizen?
2. Do you believe that Obama a Christian?
3. Do you believe that the Constitution applies equally to Americans of all religious faiths.

Publish their answers, including the names of any who refuse to answer. Make the politicians who are reaping political benefit from lies accountable.

The New York Times ran an interesting article that documented that 4 possibly 5 candidates who ran for President were born outside the United States: John McCain, Goldwater, Milt Romney's father all ran on the Republican ticket and were born in the following locals: Panama City, the territory of Arizona, and Mexico. Another candidate running for the Whip Party was born in Australia, and a fifth candidate who stated he was born in Vermont may actually have been born in Canada.

As concerning John McCain, constitutional experts from both parties thought that McCain would get a pass from the Supreme Court. The key factor was that McCain's mother was a US citizen.

If Obama states clearly he's a christian he loses whatever identification the muslim community has with him. He's being clever. His children are being raised christian aren't they? And he doesn't go every friday to the Mosque. So its pretty strange to call him a muslim.

He does not have to wear it "plastered on his forehead". All he has to do is make the long form birth certificate available for authentication. There has been a lot of money spent preventing this from happening. All he has to do is open up passport records for the period he was born to show that his mother was not in Kenya. He says that "facts are facts". The problem is that many facts about him and his past activities are purposely hidden. The Saul Alinski inspired "birther" ridicule technique no longer works.

You're mixing up two issues. America doesn't require and religious test, but that doesn't mean America is "secular state." America is not "secular state", it is a constitutional republic that decided it didn't want the state to deciding religious issues for the citizens.

Could care less what religion he belongs to, but what I really have a problem with are his consistent speeches with nothing following: his consistent having games with sports figures, while jobs continue to leave our shores; his constant parties at the White House while families throughout the country are scraping to put bread on their tables; and vacations all over the world while the citizens of this country continue to lose their homes (and autos) through defaults and repossessions!

What I have a problem with is his solution to use other people's money and resources to buy votes, and placing this Country in debt for decades to come. Candidly, wish he would find a religion to instill some discipline in his soul!

ladyliberty1: The Governor of Hawaii who is a Republican has repeatedly stated the Obama's birth certificate is in order and verifies his birth in Hawaii.

and to speak about Christianity and "bearing fruit" while not talking about going to war in Iraq based on a lie and causing young soldiers (fathers, sons, daughters, uncles, and aunts) to die is deplorable. What kind of Christian are you? Get the beam out of your own eye before you try to get the splinter out of Obama's.

You sound like you are spouting huge ones.
Calm down child. And stop referring to obama as a chimpie. That's rude.
But you're right. obama is running the country into the ground and because of his lack of experience, I imagine we may be at war "again" before he is sent packing to the land of the thugs.
My real reason for responding to your hate filled, foaming at the mouth diatribe is that I have read FactCheck.org.
I recall reading a translation of one of someone's (I won't say who) speeches and their wording was......"so and so said this but he meant............."
Consequently since Factcheck is only supposed to report facts without taking sides, they very obviously "took sides" when they said "he meant." Unless of course they have hired a genuine mind reader, then they have lost all creditation, in my opinion.
However, opinions are like a-$$holes. Everyone has one.

To determine who is and who is not a Christian, one must look at a person's life.

Is there fruit that says the person is "in" Christ.

The number one distinguishing characteristic of a Christian is that he/she loves the truth and seeks to live by the truths in God's Word.

The indwelling person of Christ, the Holy Spirit, is called the "spirit of truth."

Truth is associated with Light. Jesus came into the world as Light in the midst of darkness. He said, "I am the Way, the truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father, but by Me."

Lying is associated with darkness, the deeds of Satan.

Even the dimmest light will dispel darkness.

Now, how does this apply to Mr. Obama?

Mr. Obama's entire life is shaded in darkness. He makes every effort to conceal information, even basic information like school records, and something as basic as a birth certificate. This is troubling for anyone who is a public figure who spends almost 2 years concealing records that should be public.

Mr. Obama is a shady character at best. He lives in darkness and keeps us in the dark about who he really is.

obama's birth nationality remains an issue because he was made exempt from media/public scrutiny (special treatment). It's also an issue because he insisted his administration would be one of unprecedented transparency, which he has not delivered. In fact, there are reports that he has gone to great expense and effort to keep his records sealed. That rankles. So why the crack about the birth certificate plastered to his head -- just show the legitimate long-form birth certificate, grades, Law Review articles, tuition sources, and everything else that would normally be made manifest for someone occupying the highest office in the land.

Otherwise expect the question: what have you got to hide?

Posted by: wmpowellfan | August 30, 2010 8:42 AM | Report abuse

This is why we think the president is lying:

1) He spends lots of time talking about how he doesn't have time to satisfy the demands for his birth certificate; yet, he has employed countless lawyers to defend him in court against those who have demanded that he show his birth certificate.

2) He just returned from 10 days of golf and leisure, at taxpayer expense, yet, he says he doesn't have time to deal with this issue that concerns the people who are paying his salary.

3) Obama's "I don't have time" message isn't even a good one. And, he supposedly has a law degree? From Harvard? And, he can't come up with something better?

As to Mr. Obama being a Muslim:

1) I don't know, but we do know that he is the son of a Muslim, and the stepson of a Muslim, and a brother of Muslim, and a grandson of a Muslim, and we do know that he lived in Muslim Indonesia, and that he can speak the arabic prayer which says that there is one god, Allah, and Mohammed is his messenger. We also know that Mr. Obama said that the "prettiest sound on earth is the Muslim prayer at sunset."

2) We also know that Mr. Obama has reached out to the Muslim world with his Cairo speech, that he has appointed special Muslim envoys to the Muslim world, that he has given NASA a mission of reaching out to the Muslim world, and that he has hosted two Ramadans at the White House.

3) We also know that Mr. Obama has treated shamefully the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu when he was a guest at the White House.

So, we do not know if Mr. Obama is a Muslim, but we do not that he is NOT a Christian.

How do we know that?

1) He believes that salvation is collective. Christianity is not collective salvation.

2) Mr. Obama said in his book that he did not know what happens after death, or where one goes. Christians believe what the Bible says about heaven and hell.

3) Mr. Obama's only record of church attendance was at TUCC. The teachings at this church are not Biblical. They are political messages, marxist and racist. Mr. Obama could not possibly have become a Christian listening to the messages of Jeremiah Wright.

So, I can't say for sure that Mr. Obama is a Muslim, but, I can say for sure there is no evidence, whatsoever, that Mr. Obama is a Christian. There is more evidence that he is a Muslim, but even greater evidence that he is a narcissist, in love with himself.

The liberal media will not ask the tough questions. For example, this morning, on the Today Show, Brian Williams said he questioned Obama on the fact the 1/5 of the country believes he is Muslim. Obama brushed it off, but Williams never asked him real questions. For example:

1. Why are your college records sealed?
2. Why have you not produced a long form Hawaiian birth certificate?
3. Why did your wife, in her own words, say that your home town is in Kenya?
4. Why did a Kenyan MP say you were born in Kenya?
5. Why did you say that you never heard any anti-American rhetoric from Jeremiah Wright, when the fact is that you were featured on the cover of its national magazine three times, where anti-Americanism was editorialized?
6. Why have you never visited Iraq?
7. Why have you only been to Afghanistan once, and this was a five hour fly-over in the middle of the night where of all things, you held a troop review in total darkness, and then hurried home so as not to miss the WH Easter Egg hunt?
8. Why did your wife say America is a mean country?
9. Why did you cram health-care overhaul down our throats?
10. At your recent week long birthday bash, why did you only invite black NBA players to your hoops extravaganza?
11. Why do you lie so much about creating jobs and that the economy is improving? The fact is that it is going backwards.
12. Why did you say that you only had a casual relationship with the unrepentent bomber Bill Ayers, when the fact is that he picked you to manage his Chicago Annenberg Challenge?

Will the real Barack Obama, Barry Soetero, or whatever your name is, please stand up.

When people found out that Barrack Hussein Obama was enrolled as a Muslim child in school and his father and stepfather were both Muslims, people said it didn't matter.

Discrimination is holding something against those who are not like you.

I was always taught in my church that each of us had an individual relationship with the Lord. And that relationship was as unique as a snowflake. That different people had different paths to salvation, but as long as we walked with the Lord, we were OK.

My church taught us not to look for our differences, but our similarities - especially regarding our faith. With that philosophy, I've traveled through life and found that I have more in common with truly religious people of any faith than I do with false prophets or those who bend the Word to their own desires. Even as many may claim to share my faith, I find they do either do not know the Word - or choose not to practice it. I accept them nonetheless, even though they may be different than me. Their road to salvation is different than mine. My faith doesn't harvest the Lord as a political weapon.

I have some advice to my Christian brothers and sisters questioning anothers faith. If you want to know Obama's religion, renew your faith. Renew your studies of the Word. The answer will come to you and the truth will set you free.

I just don't want to get blindsided by something while I pay attention to an issue which wouldn't make a difference regardless of the truth at this point.

It is interesting that there are very few prerequisites to run for President and apparently you do not have to document your age and citizenship status in spite of those stipulations. Who knew? I didn't.

Some brave news reporter should ask Glenn Beck to define God. From what I know of Mormonism (Glenn Beck's professed religion) Mormons believe that God the Father was once a man, but became God. He has a physical body, as does his wife. They do not believe in the Trinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, but rather they are three separate gods. Finally, and this is where I think Mr. Beck places himself....they believe that worthy men may one day become gods themselves.

Now, if I have this wrong, I would appreciate one of the Latter-day Saints reading this column to post and refute what I have read from other religious sources.

We know Obama has at times claimed to be a Christian. We know Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity Church claims to be some kind of Christian denomination. We simply doubt it. And the more we watch all of you, the less we are inclined to believe any of it.

(And by “we,” I mean folks who would respond “Muslim” or “not sure” to your poll questions.)

We also know Obama’s father was a Muslim. We know his stepfather was a Muslim. We know that under Sharia Law, he is a Muslim, and that much of the Muslim world regards him as a Muslim. We know his mother was an atheist. We know Obama sent a bureaucrat out to claim that NASA’s top mission was Muslim outreach. We know he skipped the Boy Scouts’ 100th Anniversary bash. We know he’s had a couple Freudian slips pertaining to his faith. We know he has called the Islamic call to prayer the most beautiful sound on earth.

We know that in light of all of this, some sycophantic White House spokesperson has the gall to say how “obvious” Obama’s Christianity is. Depends on what the meaning of “obvious” is, I guess.

There’s more. So much more:

We know Jeremiah Wright rejects America’s founding principles — which are consistent with what we call Christianity — and many of us believe our founding principles were divinely inspired. Moreover, we know that Obama is on board with Wright on this — at least to the point of claiming that our Constitution is flawed in how it grants individual rights and liberty. We happen to think that rights Obama wants to curtail come from our Creator.

We know Obama has appointed proud and unabashed Marxists into his government. We happen to know that Marxism is by definition anti-Christian. We know he has confiscated the wealth of others to redistribute to his union thug friends under false pretenses. We know he turned his back on Iranian protesters in favor of an Islamic regime. We know he publicly defers to folks like Chávez and Saudi royalty more than he does Texas and Arkansas governors. On and on we could go here.

So what is so blamed obvious?

The only thing obvious here is that if Obama is a Christian, he is absolutely awful at walking out his faith. Or — as might be said at any basic tent revival — he done “backslid.” (Does anyone in the media have any idea what either of those phrases mean?)

In other words, we are paying attention to what is real and to what you are reporting — and the two aren’t jiving.

We know Obama has at times claimed to be a Christian. We know Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity Church claims to be some kind of Christian denomination. We simply doubt it. And the more we watch all of you, the less we are inclined to believe any of it.

(And by “we,” I mean folks who would respond “Muslim” or “not sure” to your poll questions.)

We also know Obama’s father was a Muslim. We know his stepfather was a Muslim. We know that under Sharia Law, he is a Muslim, and that much of the Muslim world regards him as a Muslim. We know his mother was an atheist. We know Obama sent a bureaucrat out to claim that NASA’s top mission was Muslim outreach. We know he skipped the Boy Scouts’ 100th Anniversary bash. We know he’s had a couple Freudian slips pertaining to his faith. We know he has called the Islamic call to prayer the most beautiful sound on earth.

We know that in light of all of this, some sycophantic White House spokesperson has the gall to say how “obvious” Obama’s Christianity is. Depends on what the meaning of “obvious” is, I guess.

There’s more. So much more:

We know Jeremiah Wright rejects America’s founding principles — which are consistent with what we call Christianity — and many of us believe our founding principles were divinely inspired. Moreover, we know that Obama is on board with Wright on this — at least to the point of claiming that our Constitution is flawed in how it grants individual rights and liberty. We happen to think that rights Obama wants to curtail come from our Creator.

We know Obama has appointed proud and unabashed Marxists into his government. We happen to know that Marxism is by definition anti-Christian. We know he has confiscated the wealth of others to redistribute to his union thug friends under false pretenses. We know he turned his back on Iranian protesters in favor of an Islamic regime. We know he publicly defers to folks like Chávez and Saudi royalty more than he does Texas and Arkansas governors. On and on we could go here.

So what is so blamed obvious?

The only thing obvious here is that if Obama is a Christian, he is absolutely awful at walking out his faith. Or — as might be said at any basic tent revival — he done “backslid.” (Does anyone in the media have any idea what either of those phrases mean?)

In other words, we are paying attention to what is real and to what you are reporting — and the two aren’t jiving.

Regarding the following: Wash. Post needs a FANNED AND FAVORITE BUTTON!!!!

A comment so nice we should read it twice.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Stop already!

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph could appear at a televised prsss conference tomorrow and whisk Obama into heaven with angels singing in the background. Concurrently, snow could fall on the Washington Mall and spell out the the message: "OBAMA IS A CHILD OF MINE AND A FRIEND OF JESUS."

The next day, polls would show an increase in the percentage of Americans who believe that Obama is a Muslim. There would be a flurry of article questioning whether Jesus is a Muslim because he is a confirmed friend of Obama.

The press needs to stop using the "is he or isn't he" story to boost their ratings and, where applicable, to help their special friends to manipulate elections. Somewhere there has to be one newspaper, one network, or one independent media outled with the guts to do a very simple journalistic task.

1. Is Obama a Muslim.

2. Explain your reasons for ansering yes or no.

3. Was Obama born in the US.

4. Explain your reaons for answering yes or no.

5. Should an American citizen of any failth be denied the right to run for president>

While they are at it, they should ask commentators for national news programs the same questions.

Republican such as Glen Beck have made a mockery out of religion. The GOP has always claimed the "moral, religious and honor" high ground, only to be exposed as a ordinary human being wading in their own lies they tell their "brain dead" to get elected.

It is funny how man has evolved, except for Republicans that are still stuck on stupid.

There next act will be telling America, Bush restored "honor to the White House."

Glen and Sara are Christians such as you and our beleaguered president. Would that he were not in the company of such moronic bigots.

I can't spend time with my birth cirtificate pasted to my head? What kind of a statemrnt is this. The President of the USA didn't say this, did he?. The President of the USA first job is to make sure that all Americans are protected and secure from any forigen invaders and to follow the rules set forth by the Constitution of the USA. Just because Obama is our President don't mean that he can do and say whatever he want's to. This is America and he better put all of the US legal citizens first when he makes any decisions on our Countries future and legal policies. Obama cannot just let any person into our Country, just because he thinks that it is ok. He must follow all of our laws that were written by us citizens on the behalf of our Constitutional laws that were written to protect all of us. Nobody has the right to change any laws that we live by just to support his own beliefs! Obey our Constitution MR Obama.

Simply put, Liberation Theology is an attempt to interpret Scripture through the plight of the poor. It is largely a humanistic doctrine. It started in South America in the turbulent 1950s when Marxism was making great gains among the poor because of its emphasis on the redistribution of wealth, allowing poor peasants to share in the wealth of the colonial elite and thus upgrade their economic status in life. As a theology, it has very strong Roman Catholic roots.
Liberation Theology was bolstered in 1968 at the Second Latin American Bishops Conference which met in Medellin, Colombia. The idea was to study the Bible and to fight for social justice in Christian (Catholic) communities. Since the only governmental model for the redistribution of the wealth in a South American country was a Marxist model, the redistribution of wealth to raise the economic standards of the poor in South America took on a definite Marxist flavor. Since those who had money were very reluctant to part with it in any wealth redistribution model, the use of a populist (read poor) revolt was encouraged by those who worked most closely with the poor. As a result, the Liberation Theology model was mired in Marxist dogma and revolutionary causes.
As a result of its Marxist leanings, Liberation Theology as practiced by the bishops and priests of South America was criticized in the 1980s by the Catholic hierarchy, from Pope John Paul on down. The top hierarchy of the Catholic Church accused liberation theologians of supporting violent revolutions and outright Marxist class struggle. This perversion is usually the result of a humanist view of man being codified into Church Doctrine by zealous priests and bishops and explains why the Catholic top hierarchy now wants to separate itself from Marxist doctrine and revolution.
However, Liberation Theology has moved from the poor peasants in South America to the poor blacks in North America. We now have Black Liberation Theology being preached in the black community. It is the same Marxist, revolutionary, humanistic philosophy found in South American Liberation Theology and has no more claim for a scriptural basis than the South American model has. False doctrine is still false, no matter how it is dressed up or what fancy name is attached to it. In the same way that revolutionary fervor was stirred up in South America, Liberation Theology is now trying to stir up revolutionary fervor among blacks in America. If the church in America recognizes the falseness of Black Liberation Theology as the Catholic Church did in the South American model, Black Liberation Theology will suffer the same fate that the South America Liberation Theology did; namely, it will be seen as a false, humanist doctrine dressed up in theological terms.
DO WHAT IS RIGHT...RESTORE HONOR and GOD will lead America.

Obama on many occasions has said he believes in collective salvation...this is in direct opposition to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

My message is to Glen Beck and Sarah Palin.
Do not try to pass yourselves off as being Christians unless you are willing to obey the direct words of Jesus. A good example of his teaching is as follows:
"Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys." Luke 12:33
"But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind." Luke 14:13
You might also consider the Sermon on the Mount. Particularly the part that says Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Until you are willing to follow the explicit teaching of Christ, don't tell me you are promoting the Christian faith. I will say you are a hypocrite.
----------------------------
Show me "just one person" who follows the exact teachings of Christ. I'll show you a Saint, and I'll worship, and follow that one person. If you cannot do that, should I consider you, a "Hypocrite?"

President Obama is awesome. He has done the best he could trying to fix the mess Bush and the Republicans left. He saved millions of Americans from losing their 401K, Iras and retirement savings by NOT letting the banks and financial instituions fail. That has been overlooked by many Americans. CEO would have liquidated the companies, paid themselves and gave the public pennies on the dollar. FDIC does not work with retirement savings. Healthcare is a start and will grow to ensure all Americans can afford care. Sorry profit making insurance companies. You can still sell insurance to the tea party and republicans. LOL

"O'bama is awwsome??"
Cancer, and pit bulls are awesome.
They can both committ awesome damage.
But, even Cancer, and huge Pit Bulls, are not yet equal to the damage that O'bama's doing, and Continues to do, to our Once Great Nation.
I blame Bush, and the Democrats, for the major damage. Dubya stood by, while the Congressional Democrats, through support for Fannie, and Freddie, started the loss in 2006, and 2007. The lot of them, everyone who voted for Fannie, and Freddie should be imprisoned, with Bernie Madoff. At least, Madoff didn't steal our tax money.
These liars, thieves, and crooks, gave our money away.
O'bama, the Marxist, "cannot" improve upon this Nations, Economy, culture, and Finances.
I think he hates America. Anyone with an eight grade education, would see, and recognize the fallacy of his actions, and reverse course. I don't think O'bama's capable of changing, or reversing.
He plans our destruction, and we're standing by, staring at him.

OBAMA CAN FORGET ABOUT GETTING THE BLACK VOTE THE WAY HE DID IN 2008....COME 2012

RAHM EMANUEL - THIS MAN IS DICK CHENEY IN DISGUISE -

I HATE RAHM EMANUEL POLITICS AND NOW IT IS SPREADING TO OBAMA

BUT IF THE STUPID GOP THINKS THEY CAN MAKE THE OTHER MINORITIES AFRAID....NOT

ALL MINORITIES WILL BE VOTING THIS FALL


OBAMA AS LONG AS YOU KEEP RAHM EMANUEL AND ROBERT GIBBS ON YOUR STAFF....IT SHOWS THAT THE CONSERVATIVES ARE RIGHT ABOUT YOU

AN AFRAID EMPTY SUIT


I WILL VOTE FOR CONGRESS...BUT I WON'T BE VOTING FOR THIS PRESIDENT....

This was a nice happy face interview by Brian Williams. No doubt Obama is happy with the legislation that the Democrats passed for him...800 billion dollar "Jobs Stimulus," the insane "Obamacare," and the stupid "Dodd-Frank Financial Reform" bill.

Obamacare and Financial "Reform" consisting of about 5,000 pages that no Democrat has read and no Republican was allowed to read, do you think businesses will hire anyone with 5,000 pages of new regulations staring them in the face? Yet Obama and the Democrats are proud of these new laws.

Not to mention, Obama stopping all oil drilling in the Gulf and any new oil drilling either on shore or off shore in America. Why? Because his buddies like Al Gore want "clean energy" like windmills, solar panels, battery powered cars and of course carbon tax aka "global warming" aka "climate change."

With Obama wanting to stop oil production in America, do you think gasoline prices will increase or decrease? Will higher gasoline prices increase inflation or decrease it?

I don't know if Obama is a Muslim. I do know that he is sympathetic to Muslims...ground zero Masque...no Muslim terrorists have been tried and convicted since Obama took office as President.

I also don't know if Obama was born in America. I do know that both of his parents were Marxists and that Obama has spent millions of dollars hiding his school records, college writings and long form-birth certificate.

A man without a past, has no future.

Yet I think Obama could be great, if he stopped being a Liberal/Progressive and stated becoming a Conservative.

Great line Mr. President;
certainly credit goes to your writers, as usual.


Suppose they have seen your Birth Cert?
I know Ezra, Dana, Eugene, David and Co have...oh wait...they have not seen it either?


Fact is I am not a 'birther'(or any of the other names these cowards throw around)...but way too much fun to poke fun at Bambi and his loser lap dogs.

Just wish they would all move to Tel Aviz...since Iran is NOT building a nuke and they absolutly will NOT use it...I know this is true because Bambi and the lap dogs told me so.

Well, maybe we're finally getting somewhere. "No birth certificate at all" confirms the inability of the "birthers" to produce a Kenyan or Indonesian birth certificate.
