According to a new poll, seventy percent of Millennials now plan on voting for socialists and Democrats. And thirty-six percent support communism. For those keeping score at home, that’s one in three youngsters – brought up in the modern, atheistic, secular-progressive education system in America.

Not surprisingly, with the help of today’s media and Hollywood, these same Millennials believe President Donald Trump is a bigger threat to world peace than North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

Most of us born prior to 1980 learned the truth about socialism before history books were completely rewritten in government schools. What’s so bad about Communism and what kind of death and destruction have socialist leaders inflicted on the world?

In its fourth annual report on attitudes toward socialism, the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation reveal some alarming trends among under-educated young people in the United States of Entertainment.

I hope you’re sitting down for this next one. Only 57% of Millennials believe the Declaration of Independence better “guarantees freedom and equality” over the Communist Manifesto. And, only 62% of future world shakers believe China is a communist country.

Socialism is a centrally planned economy in which the government controls all means of production. Is this confusing at all? Is this historical amnesia or is it the corruption of the left indoctrinating a generation of young people?

Marion Smith, executive director of Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation states:

“When we don’t educate our youngest generations about the historical truth of 100 million victims murdered at the hands of communist regimes over the past century, we shouldn’t be surprised at their willingness to embrace Marxist ideas; We need to redouble our efforts to educate America’s youth about …the dangers of socialism today.”

Most of us don’t understand how kids can go through junior high and high school and not come away with at least a basic understanding of economics and world history. We remember the Soviet Union and Red China, and today, a few obvious examples are Cuba and Venezuela.

Rather than the facts, too many students buy into feelings-based liberal talking points about a softer, appealing brand of socialism. They follow people like congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, who wants to give them free stuff. Do they really believe capitalism is the problem? Yup.

Ocasio-Cortez has even said her generation has never known true prosperity. In America.

This growing love affair with socialism coincides with a foggy understanding of economic philosophies and is a result of biased, ideologically-driven public school curriculum. How else can you explain why even ten percent of Millennials say Trump is “responsible for more deaths and human rights abuses” than Russian leader Joseph Stalin who murdered tens of millions of people, or Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler?

The same way we can explain how 87% of high school students flunked a five-question test of basic knowledge about American history. These same students were also least likely to know who is on Mount Rushmore. Just four presidents; and only 35 percent got it right.  

Millennials generally see the world through their own emotions and experience, which prevents them from acknowledging the truth about life and world history. Combine that with the fact the progressive education system teaches them how bad America is and you can begin to understand why they think the way they do. 

People complain about the world and say they want equality, fairness, and justice. But do they really understand what they mean? Those same people are often the first to deny the God who created us, ignore the truth in the Bible, and criticize the Judeo-Christian principles that helped set the foundation for the great freedoms and moral values we have enjoyed in America. 

We might not be able to re-educate people, but we better pray for God’s protection on this nation, fight the good fight, and speak the truth on these issues.

The party of godlessness is taking their extremism up a few notches to the point you can no longer be neutral. Just a handful of things liberal Democrats have supported in recent weeks include: infanticide, anti-Semitism, environmentalism, illegal immigration, transgender surgeries, the LGBTQ agenda, legalizing prostitution, and of course – socialism.

Does the cycle of godlessness begin with those elected to office, or the people who vote them into power? If you haven’t thought about leaving the Democrat Party, it may be time to at least stop blindly voting for them, especially if you’re a Christian. If you refuse to reconsider, you have a serious conflict of interest on your hands. Many on both sides need to repent of idolatry.

I am certainly not suggesting the Republican Party is full of angels. I’m thankful for President Trump’s strong pro-life and pro-Israel stance, but I don’t agree with him on all the issues, nor do I go along with every single policy they endorse. There is however, a stark, glaring contrast today between the two major political parties in the U.S. and the chasm is getting wider and deeper.

More than ever, progressives are all about power. Their goal is big government control and one-party rule in America. Karl Marx would be proud because the revolution can only advance by doing away with God & Christianity, families, natural marriage, religious freedom, work incentive, and private property. Social justice ideology has practically consumed any professing Christians in the Democrat Party to the point they justify blatant immorality.

‘It’s all about the people,’ they say. Nancy Pelosi said Democrats are doing God’s work. They say Republicans and Christians are the ones who are bigoted, intolerant and racist. 

But before we get to the slippery slope of socialism, we should call out immorality for what it is. Democrat presidential candidate, Senator Kamala Harris recently said she would “decriminalize” prostitution based on consent. Wouldn’t that lead to more sexual abuse and less protection for victims of violence?

Next, you already know about Democrats in New York voting to legalize infanticide, the murder of a living baby even up through the delivery process. But the Party of death also voted against providing medical care or protections to a baby born alive in the case of a botched abortion. 

Think about this: a living, suffering human baby is placed on a table crying and in pain – and is left to die. They wouldn’t do that to a puppy or a kitten – or a fish.

Condemning the liberal mindset that defends animal life over human life, CEO of MyPillow.com, Mike Lindell said this last week at CPAC:

“I see a Party saving minnows in California and killing babies in New York. Are you kidding me?”

And some say a wall on our southern border is “immoral.” Did you know that on Friday, House Democrats voted in favor of illegal immigrants voting in U.S. elections? The key word here is “illegal.” This is no longer your great grandparent’s Democrat Party.

They did this under the guise of the bill, “HR 1,” and essentially voted to defend local governments choosing to go against federal law and allow illegal aliens to vote. Georgia Democrat, John Lewis said they are “prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in.”

Texas Republican and American Vet, Dan Crenshaw asked, “What kind of government would cancel the vote of its own citizens, and replace it with noncitizens?” He later Tweeted:

“Today I offered a motion to recommit #HR1 reaffirming that only US citizens should have the right to vote. “Dems rejected it. Next time you go to the ballot box, keep that in mind. The future of their party is in cities like San Fran, where illegals can vote. Let that sink in.”

Prior to Democrats regaining power in the U.S. House, Nancy Pelosi promised to work hard for the LGBT lobby, for noncitizens wanting to cross our borders, for women wanting abortions, and for those wanting to protect the environment.

Then there’s Corey Booker who first grilled Mike Pompeo, then a judicial nominee, asking if they believe LGBT relationships are a sin. So, if you don’t believe in gay sex, you’re not fit to serve?

Don’t forget Hillary who, from her high perch above the law, thinks Trump voters are just a bunch of deplorables.

But there are plenty of headlines about the 29 year-old college grad and bartender from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC recently said she’s so worried about the environment and the planet she wonders if it’s still okay to have babies.

She also just called for the U.S. to end its relationship with Israel. Her radical socialist policies should are concerning. The “Green New Deal” she introduced would cost trillions and she doesn’t seem to care or understand how we’d pay for it.

Writing about Democrat radicalism, Washington Times contributor, Robert Knight stated:

But she’s the new face of the Democratic Party’s plunge into outright socialism. All six of the major announced contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination have endorsed her sweeping “Green New Deal.” He added that “socialism “promises of guaranteed income equality,” “free” medical care,” “free college tuition,” state ownership of the means of production, confiscation of private property, central planning and a one-party system inevitably result in coercion and violence.”

I agree that socialism violates the laws of nature and nature’s God, and the progressive worldview begins with the false idea we’re not really created in God’s image, and we’re merely products of random events.

The sexual revolution was part and parcel of socialist thought in the 19th century, just as it’s a driving force in the Democratic Party today, which pushes LGBTQ sexual anarchy and abortion. A consistent feature of the revolution is that “the ends justify the means.” So, lies are good as long as people keep falling for them.

Seventy-five years ago, six-time candidate for the Socialist Party of America, Norman Thomas, stated:

“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.”

Marx wrote that socialism is the last necessary step on the road to communism. Ronald Reagan once said, “I didn’t leave the Democrat Party; the Democrat Party left me.” But he said this in the 1980s. It’s nearly forty years later and too many Americans believe the same lies and keep voting the same way simply because they always have.

Since our actions and words will be judged, don’t you think God will hold us accountable for how we vote?

For those who trust in Jesus Christ and believe the Bible is true, if you vote for policies that go against God’s teachings and biblical morality, it might be time to reexamine your priorities, values, and even who or what your faith is in.

chipped-flag-on-brick-wall-300x200The United States of America has been under attack – from within. Two things make this fact even worse: many people are oblivious, and the larger problem is others just don’t seem to care.

It is important we understand how we got to this point of corruption and crisis as a nation, determine who is responsible, and decide what we can do about it. You may know much of this information, but many of your friends do not; please share it.

In order to examine the spiritual, financial, and political condition of the United States of America, the epic prize globalists wish to conquer, it’s vital we acknowledge some brief history.

Pilgrims and patriots came to these shores to escape religious persecution, government intrusion, and to establish a God-fearing settlement that would flourish on faith and freedom. This great Republic was originally founded upon biblical teachings, Moral Law, and the Declaration of Independence. We know, however, this is not the same country it was one or two hundred years ago.

We now know – and many of these are interchangeable – atheists, communists, liberals, humanists, Marxists, progressives, and socialists have infiltrated our government and undermined the order and very foundation of our nation. They have infected our courts, the education system, our corporations, the entertainment industry, and unfortunately, many of our churches. (Read about the Emergent Church.)

Most of us would like to see this nation return to one in which people once again honor the Lord first, respect the Constitution, the Flag, and allow others to live their lives based on Judeo-Christian principles. But this may be wishful thinking because political correctness will no longer coexist with religious freedom.

For concerned Christians, there is a stark reality looking us square in the eyes: God’s Word (Bible prophecy) reveals some sobering truths about the future of our nation and this world. Things will become even darker, more chaotic, and people’s hearts will grow cold. The Bible tells us evil will appear to prevail in the days leading up to the Lord’s return, and nations will not only come against Israel, they will stand in defiance of God our Creator and King.

The question is how much time do we have in the United States of America? Obviously, no one can answer this specifically. Could we have a great spiritual revival and awakening in our nation? It is possible, but not probable. Have we become such stiff-necked, lukewarm, self-serving people we have already sealed our own fate? Perhaps.

The other day, our guest on Stand Up for the Truth, Julaine Appling said, 

“Law is always downstream of culture.”

It is true our culture drives politics and legislation in America. Just look at the powerful LGBT lobby teaming up with Hollywood and the liberal media! But what happened to the influence of the church? Christianity used to drive culture, but today, more and more churches, leaders, and denominations have become silent or have conformed to the world.

Anti-Christian, anti-American agendas are being carried out across the country with little concern or resistance.

Two evil, influential political philosophies have shaped the direction of our nation over the past 50-plus years, and we see devastating effects on Americans who are (for the most part) unknowingly embracing them.

  • Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”
  • The Cloward-Piven Strategy

These two progressive, Marxist philosophies and their implemented agendas have been used together to bring our nation to the precipice of economic and moral destruction. First, a quote from: Rules for RadicalsA Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals

“In the beginning the organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems.” Saul D. Alinsky,

The Obama administration sure took that principle to heart.

…Chicago-born Saul David Alinsky (1909 – 1972) was an American community organizer who dropped out of graduate school at the University of Chicago to work as a criminologist. He was drawn to the world of gangsters and was a confidant of the Al Capone mob. Alinsky became a “student” of enforcer Frank Nitti, who took over the mob when Capone was sent to prison. An Alinski radical has one main goal – power.

His motto was, “The most effective means are whatever will achieve the desired results.” In 1971, the hard Left, progressive community organizer wrote a playbook of subversive tactics to empower an upcoming generation of change agents. A few notable adherents to the Alinsky method are: Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Van Jones, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jim Wallis, and former President Barack Obama.

Expert organizer, President Obama, didn’t miss a beat when he left office and according to reports is scheming to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidency. His army of agitators numbering in the tens of thousands will take orders from Obama’s command post in his new Washington home less than two miles from the White House. Not content to move on like other ex-presidents, Obama is actively working to fight against Republicans.

Having raised over $40 million in the last few years of his presidency with the help of former Obama aides and campaign workers, his network of leftist nonprofits led by Organizing For Action (OFA) with 250 offices across the country, added staff, and fresh recruitment of liberal activists. Not only that, but Obama’s close confidante Valerie Jarrett has moved into his new DC home, the nerve center for their plan to mastermind the insurgency against the Trump administration.

The Alinsky Game Plan:

  • Exploit the weaknesses inherent in the system, made weaker by pitting opposing forces against one another.
  • Oppose independent, morally strong, educated people because those individuals, especially in groups, can’t be manipulated easily.
  • They attempt to end-run constitutional rights with social contract and dialectic consensus methods. Engage in large scale social engineering, attempting to unfreeze a society using chaos, and to then refreeze it in a new predefined shape.
  • The dividing lines they polarize people on are most often racial, economic, religious and political.
  • Cause social instability through subversive and divisive rhetoric. One method is to control the outcome of the education system by lowering the standards of education so that it creates a dependent class.
  • Use their political platforms to overload a society with social spending programs and class warfare to the point that hatred and division cause social panic.
  • Once they’ve created a problem, they propose themselves as the answer and use wealth transfers and the trumping of rights as the method to bring about “equality.”

THE EFFECTS:

  • An overpowering Federal government bureaucracy that has violated the U.S. Constitution’s principles of limited Federal government power and control.
  • $20 trillion in national debt. Not even counting Social Security and Pension obligations:  Most estimates are the nation is almost $100 trillion in debt:  A system waiting to collapse.
  • An American public that has become addicted to government handouts.  More than half the population is on direct assistance from the government.
  • A laziness and narcissism with Americans where they look to government to provide instead of providing for themselves.
  • Massive Student Loan debt that will never be repaid because of a corrupt educational system that lured young people with lies and false illusions.
  • The only way to get out of this fiscal mess is a complete overhaul of the debt situation in the nation:  BANKRUPTCY, which leads to a Marxist State.

THE ALINSKY DOCTRINE:

8 Steps to Topple a Nation and Create a Socialist State.

Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and The Cloward-Piven Strategy have been woven together by Progressive Marxist-Humanists to create a crisis so bad that the only “solution” is what they have wanted:  Communism.  Let’s look at the eight points where the two doctrines intersect.

illegal is a crime

 

One sign reads, “Illegal is a crime.” Another reads, “We are the future of America.” Many believe the Obama administration knows exactly what it is doing.

When the president signed an executive order two years ago enacting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and rolled out the red carpet for illegal aliens, did they not expect any of the problems we’re seeing today? Did our government not know that Central and South America were advertising that immigrants get a free pass in America? From the time Obama decided to implement that policy, there has been a substantial increase in the number of people that have crossed the border, including over 52,000 children in the last fiscal year according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency.

Didn’t the White House expect an increase of crime and disease, as well as the cost to taxpayers? It was reported last month the Senate approved a bill for $1 billion “to pay for social workers caring for the surge of children pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border, saying the humanitarian crisis is growing so quickly it’s outpacing the government’s ability to handle it.” America is a compassionate, generous country, but we have laws, a Constitution, freedom and protections for citizens, which are primary reasons people come here.

The difference today however, is rather than families sneaking over the border; immigrants are now being bussed in by the hundreds. There has always been violence in other countries so to say they are suddenly fleeing that violence is insulting to our intelligence.

The Obama administration is happy to step in with their solution to another self-inflicted problem or to an orchestrated crisis they don’t want to see go to waste. Two weeks agoNancy Pelosi said, “We are all Americans – north and south in this hemisphere,” urging us to see this as an opportunity, proving the end goal is amnesty and open borders. For those on the extreme Left, these are exciting times.

This didn’t happen overnight, but something must now be done – which was exactly the plan. Another problem is many illegals do not show up for their scheduled hearings. Instead, they simply blend in to our population and receive free health care, education, find some work for cash or get welfare.

We can explain the present crisis partly by reviewing some recent history. Frances Fox Piven and Richard Cloward were a married couple who were both professors at the Columbia University School of Social Work and not surprisingly, the two were members of Democratic Socialists of America. The couple implemented an agenda to destroy capitalism (now known as the Cloward-Piven Strategy) by birthing several radical organizations one after the other, including ACORN, with the help of Wade Rathke.

In the 1960s, Fox Piven gave traction to a strategy aiming to take down America’s economy by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands. A political strategy outlined in 1966, Fox Piven and Cloward called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of “a guaranteed annual income.” The couple’s most significant achievement was the “Motor Voter” act which was signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1993. Former White House staff economist, James Simpson writes:

“As we now know, ACORN was one of the chief drivers of high-risk mortgage lending that eventually led to the financial crisis. But the Motor Voter law was another component of the strategy. It created vast vulnerabilities in our electoral system, which ACORN then exploited.

“ACORN’s voter registration scandals throughout the U.S. are predictable fallout. The Motor Voter law has also been used to open another vulnerability in the system: the registration of vast numbers of illegal aliens, who then reliably vote Democrat. Herein lies the real reason Democrats are so anxious for open borders….”

Jump ahead to March 2012; Frances Fox Piven gave a lecture to students at the University of Connecticut touting Occupy Wall Street. Fox Piven believed the Occupy movement was in its second phase at the time, where the mob “threatens to shut down institutions.” OWS had moved into city neighborhoods and schools, and she predicted “action against the banks and corporations.” She was thrilled with a poll at the time showing about “half of the youngest age group polled, probably ages 15 to 25, saw no problems with socialism.”

Just three months later, June 2012, President Obama announced the United States would stop deporting hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants and gave them work permits instead. The administration side-stepped the country’s legislative process and Obama’s executive order (DACA) applied to those who came here before age sixteen and were under thirty. It became a massive money-making racquet for the drug cartels and the Mexican government as they have been charging thousands of dollars a head, and it is unthinkable the White House did not see this coming.

Now, after six years of leaving the borders open, the president is requesting $3.8 billion in emergency aid to deal with the problem he created! Presidential requests for supplemental appropriations usually come on the heels of natural disasters or other catastrophic events, not man-caused crises. Breitbart’s Daniel Horowitz writes:

“The answer to a raging fire is to first stop pouring on the gasoline. We need a change in policy, not more taxpayer funding to support the government-sponsored arson.”

The border could be closed if both political parties representing us had the will to follow through. Sadly, we might be hearing more of what many citizens of Murrieta, CA said when illegal immigrants were bussed to their town with no advance notice:

“The Obama administration is flooding our streets to force immigration reform.”

And that was the plan from the beginning.

US Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) makes rem

Friends that love God and America:  IF we don’t learn from the past, share the TRUTH, and take action today, we are in danger of continuing down this current path of moral, fiscal, and spiritual decline which will lead to the destruction of the United States. For Christians and others who still care about our faith, freedoms, and the future of this great country, I offer the following excerpts from selected chapters in my book, ERADICATE: BLOTTING OUT GOD IN AMERICA.

First, some quotes from a 2006 interview:

“Jesus is an historical figure… I want my govern­ment to be operating for all faiths and all peoples, including atheists and agnostics… I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell… What I believe in is that if I live my life as well as I can, that I will be rewarded. [‘Sin’ means] being out of alignment with my values; I think religion at its best comes with a big dose of doubt… I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die…”  Barack Obama

If we say we are Christian, do our lives reflect the teach­ings of Jesus Christ and the Word of God? In the chapter about truth, we established the fact that a person’s faith and worldview affects every decision he or she makes. It is ludicrous to ignore the religious back­ground of the President of the United States, the most powerful public office in our country. The problem is most Americans ignored Barack Obama’s background and history before he was elected president.

If we listen to what President Obama says regarding Christianity and then observe what he does, it can be confusing; things don’t add up. The Bible is not ambiguous.

“So then, you will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:20)

In 2008, American citizens, Christians included, refused to judge Barack Obama by his own words, his membership of Jeremiah Wright’s controversial church, his stance on abortion, gay marriage, and by his big-government philosophy, his questionable Chicago history and radical activism. Let’s examine some facts.

In October 2009, President Obama gave the keynote address at the annual Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington, D.C. Among those joining the president were Lady Gaga, Tipper Gore, and the cast of Fox comedy Glee.

The Human Rights Campaign is dedicated to pro­moting homosexual issues education and changing legislation to favor gay rights. President Obama began by praising the gay community for making strides in equal rights and he pledged to deliver on major campaign promises.

He said heterosexuals still “hold fast to outworn arguments and old attitudes” and that we “deny you [gays] the rights most Americans take for granted.” In his speech, the president boldly proclaimed what no other president in American history had articulated regarding the institution of traditional marriage. Here are some direct quotes from the transcript of President Obama’s 25-minute speech:

“I want to thank the Human Rights Campaign for inviting me to speak and for the work you do every day in pursuit of equal­ity on behalf of the millions of people in this country who work hard in their jobs and care deeply about their families – and who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender.” (Applause)
“Now, I’ve said this before, I’ll repeat it again – it’s not for me to tell you to be patient, any more than it was for others to counsel patience to African Americans petitioning for equal rights half a century ago.” (Applause) *[a Civil Rights comparison, slavery…REALLY?!]
“My expectation is that when you look back on these years, you will see a time in which we put a stop to discrimination against gays and lesbians – whether in the office or on the battlefield. (Applause) …I am committed to these goals. And my admin­istration will continue fighting to achieve them…. “I support ensuring that committed gay couples have the same rights and responsibilities afforded to any married couple in this country. (Applause) …
I’ve required all agencies in the federal government to extend as many federal benefits as possible to LGBT families as the current law allows.“And I’ve called on Congress to repeal the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and to pass the Domestic Partners Benefits and Obligations Act. (Applause) And we must all stand together against divisive and deceptive efforts to feed people’s lingering fears for political and ideological gain.“

…Day by day, law by law, changing mind by mind, that is the promise we are fulfilling.”

On January 22, 2012, President Obama put in place a new mandate forcing religious employers to pay for birth control and drugs that may cause abortions. Then after the backlash, his administration revised the birth control mandate to require insurance companies to make this provision. Obama has also mandated and then provided for additional embryonic stem cell research with taxpayer funds. During his first term as president, he nominated pro-abortion activists to fed­eral appeals court positions and made pro-abortion judicial picks.

His administration is full of [progressives and] leftist, pro-abortion advocates whose past records should be alarming to Christians. President Obama cut funding for abstinence education. Conversely, he announced $50 million in funding for the UNFPA, the UN population agency that has been criticized for promoting abortion and working closely with Chinese population control officials who use forced abortions and invol­untary sterilizations!  The Obama administration also shut out pro-life groups from attending a White House-sponsored health care summit, but Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups were invited.

NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WRIGHT AND WRONG

If you make a decision to attend a church and become a member, can we assume you believe in their doctrines and agree with the theology of that church? If you were going to the same church for over twenty years, if the pastor performed your wedding and you considered him a good friend, would his teachings become part of your worldview? 

In 2008, the media did their best to avoid mentioning Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s mentor. The few times their relationship was brought up the media completely downplayed it. Why?

Wright’s church in Chicago, Trinity United Church, believes and teaches Black Liberation Theology – a theology rooted in Marxism. Obama was given a pass in 2008 when he said the anti-American, racist, socialist views of his pastor were not his views. Yet in his book, Obama refers to his Caucasian grandmother as ”a typical white person.” During his first presidential campaign, he was unwilling to wear an American flag lapel pin. Michelle Obama said she was never proud of her country until her hubby won the Democratic nomination for president.

Here’s a quote by Jeremiah Wright from a 2003 sermon:

“The government gives them the drugs, builds bigger prisons, passes a three-strike law and then wants us to sing God Bless America. No, no, no, God damn America! That’s in the Bible – for killing innocent people … God damn America for treating our citizens as less than human. God damn America for as long as she acts like she is God and she is supreme.”

What did candidate Obama say when he was asked about the sermon? He wasn’t there, of course. Was this a one-time outburst by Wright? An ABC News review of dozens of Rev. Wright’s sermons, offered for sale by the church, found repeated denunciations of the United States and the treatment of black Americans. One member of the congregation told ABC, “I wouldn’t call it radical. I call it being black in America.”

Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union com­mented on Wright:

“There are many black people who were offended by his anti-American slurs, because we, as black people have a vested inter­est in this great country… I’m tired of being made to feel – by our own people sometimes, such as Rev. Wright – that we are disconnected from what we are. I am an American.”

The Obama campaign tried to downplay the friendship between Wright and Obama. Rev. Wright baptized their daughters and is cred­ited by Obama for the title of his book, The Audacity of Hope. In the interview cited earlier, Obama was asked where he went for guidance.

“Well, my pastor [Jeremiah Wright] is certainly someone who I have an enormous amount of respect for…Father Michael Pfleger [radical liberal priest] is a dear friend, and somebody I interact with closely.”

During the period of Obama’s attendance at Wright’s Trinity United Church, the Chicago church was openly allied with Louis Farrakhan (Nation of Islam leader, renowned for his hatred of Whites and Jews).

Wright gave Farrakhan his 2007 Empowerment Award! Farrakhan delivered multiple guest lectures at the church and sources confirm Wright and Farrakhan have known each other for over twenty-four years. Farrakhan has called the real evil in America “the idea that undergirds the setup of the Western world, and that idea is called white supremacy.” Al Sharpton, Jeremiah Wright, and Barrack Obama each helped Farrakhan organize his Million Man March event. Do these “connections” matter?

“God will destroy America by the hands of the Muslims. … God will not give Japan or Europe the honor of bringing down the United States; this is an honor God will bestow upon Mus­lims.” Louis Farrakhan, 1996

“Nothing is more powerful than the black church experience.” – Barrack Obama, 2004

“Fact number one: We’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college. … Fact number two: Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run…Barack knows what it means living in a country and a culture that is controlled by rich, white people. Hillary would never know that.” – Jeremiah Wright, 2007

BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY

Twenty years in the same church means nothing according to the progressive Democrats in the media. Let’s start with defining Liberation The­ology: it is a political movement and Christian theology which inter­prets the teachings of Jesus Christ in terms of liberation from unjust economic, political, or social conditions. Liberation theology teaches the New Testament gospels can be understood only as calls for social activism, class struggle, and revolution aimed at overturning the exist­ing capitalist order and installing, in its place, a socialist utopia where today’s poor will unseat their “oppressors.”

The movement began in Latin America in the 1950’s – 60’s and teaches that God is the liberator of those oppressed by ruling classes. It came to America through theology professor James Cone, who was influenced by Malcolm X and the Black Power movement. So, where President Obama and Wright are concerned, Black Liberation Theology teaches all Scripture must be interpreted through the black experience.

The chief architect of black liberation theology, James Cone was Professor of Systematic Theology at the Union Theological Seminary in New York City and author of several books including Black Theol­ogy and Black Power. Cone views America as a racist nation with no hope of redemption. One of the tasks of this movement, according to Cone, is to analyze the nature of the gospel in light of the experience of blacks victimized by white oppressors. In A Black Theology of Lib­eration, Cone stated:

“What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of Black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject His love.”

Implying that America was founded for white people, Cone calls for “the destruction of whiteness, which is the source of human misery in the world.” He advocates the use of Marxism as a tool of social analysis to help Christians to see “how things really are.”

“Cone believed that Jesus was black and that everyone must ‘become black’ to be saved … When you join the side of the oppressed, you become black,” said Bishop Van B. Gayton of the International Community of Christian Churches as he pointed out the ideology’s shortcomings. “Cone denies the fact that God is for all people.”

The Marxist roots of this theology are evident, and obviously, not all black churches support this theology. Black religious leaders in Wright’s generation are burdened by Cone’s teachings which helped lay a foundation that enables many to embrace Marxism. There is also an emphasis on collective salvation when the black ”community” over­comes oppression. Sadly, this theology encourages a victim mentality and government dependency.

Trinity Church’s promotion of its 12-point Black Value System asks members to measure the worth of all activity in terms of “posi­tive contributions to the general welfare of the Black Community and the Advancement of Black People toward freedom,” while pledging adherence to the Black Worth Ethic and “Allegiance to All Black Lead­ership Who Espouse and Embrace the Black Value System.”

Those who adhere to biblical Christianity honor, revere, and give allegiance to the Lord Jesus Christ alone. The notion of “blackness” is not merely a reference to skin color, but rather is a symbol of oppression. When Jeremiah Wright says, “Jesus was a poor black man,” it is because he lived in oppression at the hands of “rich white people.”

“The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.” – Karl Marx

American Thinker’s Kyle-Anne Shiver visited Obama’s church in early 2008. She described Jeremiah Wright’s sermon as fiery, but not overly controversial, and seemed basically to be a “call for all good con­gregants to support Barack Obama for President.” Shiver explained she had spent months trying to fathom how “Marxist philosophy wound up emblazoned with a cross and a pulpit” while pretending to rely on the authority of the Bible. She came away with far more questions than answers.

What was revealing to Shiver was her visit to the church bookstore following the service. The books were much more political than reli­gious in nature including numerous books prominently displayed by Wright’s mentor, James H. Cone. Shiver’s warnings are clearly pointed:

“Now that I have read a number of the books that presumably Wright’s congregants (including Barack Obama) have also read, I can only conclude that the thing tying these volumes together is not Christianity, nor any real religion, but the political phi­losophy of Karl Marx.”

Books referring to the oppressor and oppressed, freeman and slave, class struggles, and societal revolutions may be fine for a library or his­tory collection, but these and many others were in the Chicago church’s store. These aren’t ideas from the Holy Bible, but the Communist Mani­festo. The danger of Cone and Wright’s teachings is that their claim to a new theology unites the black power of Muslims and Malcolm X with the Christianity of Martin Luther King Jr.

Just the fact Cone is a hero of today’s black power preachers should be telling enough. This is the emphasis of the teachings from Obama’s church. Kyle-Anne Shiver added:

“Understanding that black liberation theology is Marxism dressed up to look like Christianity helps explain why there is no conflict between Cone’s ‘Christianity’ and Farrakhan’s ‘Nation of Islam.’ They are two prophets in the same philosophi­cal (Marxist) pod, merely using different religions as backdrops for their black-power aims.”

On June 8, 2006, Barack Obama was the keynote speaker at Jim Wallis Call to Renewal conference, “Building a Covenant for a New America.” Following his address, in an interview by the United Church News, he cited “the teachings of the UCC (United Church of Christ) as foundation stones for his political work.”

“Religious thinkers and activists like my friend Jim Wallis and Tony Campolo are lifting up the Biblical injunction to help the poor as a means of mobilizing Christians against budget cuts to social programs and growing inequality.”

“Moreover, given the increasing diversity of America’s popu­lation, the dangers of sectarianism have never been greater. Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Bud­dhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers. …And even if we did have only Christians within our borders, whose Christianity would we teach in the schools, James Dob­son’s or Al Sharpton’s?”

Many of us tried sharing our concerns about Barack Obama before the 2008 election. In his May 2008 article “The Marxist Roots of Black Liberation Theology,” author Anthony Bradley warned about then Senator Obama, asking if Black Liberation Theology is helping unite the country. He concluded “preaching to a congregation of middle class blacks about their victim identity” divides people and fosters a distorted view of reality. Bradley wrote that Wright and Obama’s theology has stirred up resentment and separatism:

“‘Economic parity’ and ‘distribution’ language implies things like government-coerced wealth redistribution, perpetual minimum wage increases, government subsidized health care for all….

“Black Liberation Theology, originally intended to help the black community, may have actually hurt many blacks by promoting racial tension…. As the failed ‘War on Poverty’ has exposed, the best way to keep the blacks enslaved to government as ‘daddy’ is to … seduce blacks into thinking that upward mobility is someone else’s responsibility.”

Hundreds of conservative authors, bloggers, and columnists wrote about these issues prior to the 2008 elections. We must learn from recent history, even if it hurts. American citizens were warned (just not by the media) time and time again that if elected, Obama would push the most leftist, radical policies in American history. But millions voted for charisma and eloquence rather than character and experience, and many citizens didn’t pay attention to the issues.

Aside from his controversial church, it surprised me Americans didn’t have reservations about Obama’s stance on key biblical issues. In addi­tion to what we’ve already covered, another goal of his administration has been to expand “gay adoption,” which would create intentionally motherless and fatherless homes. When asked whether being “gay” was a choice, he responded, “I don’t think it’s a choice. I think that people are born with a certain makeup.”

We must be more active in electing godly leaders. Christian Coali­tion’s Chuck Colson implied that no matter who runs the country, laws will be passed that promote someone’s morals and values. He wrote:

“The popular notion that ‘you can’t legislate morality’ is a myth. Morality is legislated every day from the vantage point of one value system being chosen over another. The question is not whether we will legislate morality, but whose morality gets legislated. Laws establish, from the view of the state, the rightness or wrongness of human behavior.”

THE VERDICT

Let’s not be afraid to say it: President Obama may agree with parts of the Bible, but his policies reveal a different view of Jesus and Christianity than many of us understand. By his own admission, he does not believe the Word of God is inerrant and God-breathed. Barack Obama seems to have built his own brand of faith on a foundation of liberalism and post-modernism. He confuses people by declaring he is a Christian, and as Franklin Graham clearly stated, his actions and policies do not line up with biblical principles.

He has continually shown he does not support Christianity’s most essential truths and traditional morality. 

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved dark­ness instead of light because their deeds were evil (John 3:19).

President Obama needs the forgiveness of Jesus Christ just as you and I do, and if he is a backslidden Christian, he needs to return to the Lord and humbly repent. If, however, he is sincerely living out a differ­ent gospel than what the Bible teaches, then someone must reach him with the truth. He’s the President of the United States, but he is just an imperfect man of flesh and blood. Though he is the product of his past, his associations, and his environment, no one is without hope.

It’s been said that Americans vote with their wallets, that the econ­omy, jobs, and taxes trump all other issues in an election. Too many people continue pulling the voting booth lever for anti-life, progressive Democrats. Abortion is the measure for judging a society’s righteous­ness. What does it say of a people, regardless of the economy, when we allow more than one million unborn babies to be murdered every year in the name of choice?

God will have His way in the end. He governs over dictators, kings and presi­dents. But until Christ returns, we are called to hold candidates up to the highest of standards. They must be scrutinized with the Truth and the light of Scripture. As long as we still have a free country, America deserves nothing less. Christianity is the foundation upon which this nation was established.

“The hope of a Christian is inseparable from his faith. Whoever believes in the Divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures must hope that the religion of Jesus shall prevail throughout the earth. Never since the foundation of the world have the prospects of mankind been more encouraging to that hope than they appear to be at the present time. And may the associated distribution of the Bible proceed and prosper till the Lord shall have made Bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.” (Isaiah 52:10) – President John Quincy Adams (1767-1848)

How does a president with such an anti-Christian administration continue to get away with promoting sin, expanding the size and power of government, signing [record numbers of] executive orders, appointing unaccountable czars, and enacting policies that most Americans disagree with? He is protected by the media.

It appears there are times when President Obama interprets Scrip­ture as he sees fit, and he ignores the Bible when it doesn’t conform to his view. This president has been a master at double speak. When he criticizes the free markets and complains that capitalism is unfair, yet at the same time grants waivers and bailouts to favored organizations that support his Party, he’s not fooling us anymore. Ultimately, what he does and says is between him and the God he will give an account to one Day.

SPREADING THE WEALTH AND CHICAGO POLITICS

We now know that after college, for three of his Chicago years Barack Obama did plenty of community organizing and was associated with a religious group called the Gamaliel Foundation. One reporter, David Freddoso, researched Obama’s involvement in 2008 and concluded, “the proposed solution to every problem on the South Side was a distribution of government funds….”

Thanks to Breitbart TV, a 2009 video surfaced of the Gamaliel Foundation leading community organizers in prayer, not to God, but to President Obama. In the video they are seen lobbying for health care and social justice while repeating “Hear our cry, Obama” and “Deliver us, Obama.” Why did they worship him before he was president? As a trainer for Gamaliel and ACORN, Obama used his influence to secure a major increase in funding for both groups. They in turn supported him politically. Do you think the money has helped Chicago?

Because an enemy exists that must be eliminated, they have long ago declared war. Many radicals want not only to reform the system; they hope to destroy it completely.

Know this: there are enemies within. Anita Dunn, President Obama’s former communications director, went on record and said that Mao Tse-tung – who murdered 60 to 70 million people – was one of her two favorite philosophers. Second, John Holdren, the Obama administration Science and Technology Czar is a huge promoter of population control. He believes that for us to enjoy a higher quality of life there must be fewer people. He has written about and considered forced abortions and sterilization as population control options.

AN ACORN DOESN’T FALL TOO FAR FROM THE TREE

Former ACORN chief executive Bertha Lewis has a new organiza­tion, The Black Institute (TBI), one of many ACORN reincarnations, dubs its protests “Occupy Black America” and “Occupy The Hood.” During a March 2010 speech to the Young Democratic Socialists, Lewis told the audience, “First of all let me just say any group that says, ‘I’m young, I’m democratic, and I’m a socialist,’ is alright with me.” In that speech, Bertha Lewis talked about immigration being America’s “next big battle” and said the following:

“And the reason this is so important is, you know, here’s the secret [whispers]: We’re getting ready to be a majority, minority country. Shhhh. [applause] We’ll be like South Africa. More black people than white people. [laughter] Don’t tell anybody….”

Just two years prior to making this speech, Lewis had focused her attention on organizing ACORN’s national get-out-the-vote campaign for Barrack Obama. By October 2008, Lewis was facing widespread charges of voter fraud. ACORN has been called “the largest radical organization in America.”

In a May 2008 article in National Review, Stanley Kurtz, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, asked the question, “What if Barack Obama’s most important radical connection has been hiding in plain sight all along?” Madeleine Talbot was the woman at ACORN who invited Obama to train organizers. Acorn was devious in its use of banking regulations to pressure financial institutions into massive “donations” that ACORN used to finance supposedly non-partisan voter turn-out drives. Kurtz reports:

“Talbot turns out to have been a key leader of that attempt by Acorn to storm the Chicago City Council (during a living-wage debate)…. On July 31, 1997, six people were arrested as 200 Acorn protesters tried to storm the Chicago City Council session. According to the Chicago Daily Herald, Acorn dem­onstrators pushed over the metal detector and table used to screen visitors, backed police against the doors to the council chamber, and blocked late-arriving aldermen and city staff from entering the session.”

ACORN has a long history of voter fraud. Newsbusters reported:

“Seventy ACORN staffers in 12 states have been convicted of voter registration fraud by adding such notables as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck to the voter rolls … ACORN is in fact the political dirty tricks muscle of liberal Democrats.”

In 2011, “Las Vegas Judge Donald Mosley fumed at his inability to impose a harsher punishment on the radical advocacy group….” Despite their bankruptcy filing, ACORN continues to operate. They just use different names. Project Vote and ACORN Housing, renamed Affordable Housing Centers of America, are still in business.

ACORN officials openly acknowledge the network is currently restructuring and will help re-elect President Obama, so they can have the money and power to allocate more funds to Left-wing causes. Benjamin Franklin once said,


“When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”


ACORN had succeeded in duping Americans for years, and too many citizens still remain in the dark regarding Obama’s work with Saul Alinsky-influenced ACORN.


Former 1960’s Left-wing radical David Horowitz converted to conservatism in the late 1970s and knows the inside of the socialist movement extremely well. Raised by parents who were both members of the Communist Party USA, Horowitz created Students for Academic Freedom, whose self-stated goal is combatting leftist indoctrination in academia.


In a booklet called Barrack Obama’s Rules for Revolution, Horowitz wrote about the Alinsky strategy which includes the military tactic of deception in what radicals see as a real war to eliminate the enemy. In contrast, conservatives think of war as a metaphor which puts them at a disadvantage against those who are out to destroy America. One method of attack is the name calling and labeling of conservatives as “racists,” “homophobes,” “Islamophobes,” and sometimes “sexists.”

Deception is the radical’s primary weapon. This Alinsky principle is about disarming the opponent by lying and pretending to be moderate. Horowitz explains:

“Racial arsonists such as Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright pose as civil rights activists; anti-American radicals such as Bill Ayers pose as patriotic progressives….

“Barack Obama is an enigma. He won the 2008 presidential election claiming to be a moderate and wanting to bring Americans together and govern from the center. But since he took office, his actions have been far from moderate…. He has used the economic crisis to take over whole industries and has attempted to nationalize the health care system. …these actions had already made his presidency one of the most polarizing in history.”

There were die-hard socialists in America in the early 1900s who didn’t hide their ideas. They wanted to abolish the U.S. military, state police forces, the Senate, and the presidency for starters. They have since become more subtle because they realized they wouldn’t get very far if they continued to be that open about their agenda. Their strategy may have changed, but their agenda has not.

When Barack Obama boldly stated they were five days away from “fundamentally transforming the United States,” most of us know he wasn’t exaggerating. Some thought he sounded grandiose, and others assumed it was just campaign rhetoric, but an underground army of radicals was preparing to mobilize in Washington, D.C. and beyond. Obama’s election appeared to be the perfect storm for those who believe Christianity is oppressive, and America is unjust.

Let’s dig deeper: Barack Obama served on the boards of two chari­table foundations, including the Woods Fund of Chicago from 1993 to 2002. The Woods Fund supported the concept of an expanding welfare state allocating ever-increasing amounts of money to the public school system and the redistribution of wealth via taxes. During that time, the tax exempt foundation made some interesting grants, including one to Obama’s church, Trinity United Church of Christ, headed by Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Annual grants of around $70,000 were also made to ACORN from 2001-2005 for a total of $355,000 – courtesy of the Woods Fund. There were a few honest journalists who reported on the money trail, but the media gatekeepers prevented the stories from making prime time news. In addition to the reservoir of political support that came to Obama through his close ties with Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, and other Chicago churches, ACORN appears to have played a major role in Obama’s political advance.

At one time, the board of directors included Obama, Bill Ayers, and Chairman Howard J. Stanback. Stanback headed New Kenwood LLC, a limited liability company founded by Obama’s close friend and convicted felon, Tony Rezko. The fund provided a combined total of over $1 million to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. Obama was its chief executive officer, and Ayers authored the $50 million grant that gave life to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.

The Woods Fund also used Northern Trust for financial services, which is the same company that provided Obama his 2005 mortgage. The Obamas financed their upscale Hyde Park home in 2005 through Northern Trust and obtained an outstanding mortgage rate. Obama’s memberships on foundation boards “allowed him to help direct tens of millions of dollars in grants” to various liberal organizations, includ­ing Chicago Acorn, “whose endorsement Obama sought and won in his State Senate race.”

Ten years prior, Obama joined the Board of Directors for the Chicago-based Joyce Foundation in 1994 and served on its board until 2002. The Joyce Foundation targets its grants toward organizations through agendas of social justice, prison reform, increased government spend­ing for social services and radical environmentalism. Many of those recipient groups are hostile to the capitalist model. In 2003, Obama’s close leftist friend and campaign adviser, Valerie Jarrett, also joined the Joyce Foundation board. In a World Net Daily exclusive, The groups Obama kept off his resume,” Brad O’Leary noted:
“Between 1998 and 2001, the Obama and Ayers-led Woods Fund also gave nearly $300,000 to Northwestern University, where Bill Ayers and his wife, Castro-trained Bernadine Dohrn Ayers, had secured teaching jobs. Bill Ayers’ father, Tom Ayers, also sat on the Board of Trustees for Northwestern.

“If the funding and the relationships sound all too cozy, that’s because they are. Joyce Foundation President Deborah Leff and Barack Obama served together on the Foundation’s Board as late as 1999, and they also served together on the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.”

ATTENTION CHRISTIANS: There are too many professing Christians that refuse to acknowledge the truth. There are others that will read this overwhelming evidence and continue to defend Obama and the Democratic Party, regardless of the fact they cannot provide biblical support for placing their politics above their faith. This is foolish, irresponsible, and reckless.

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG: JUST SOME OF THE PRESIDENT’S FRUIT

Examples of President Obama’s policies that reflect his and his administration’s views of Christianity – or lack thereof:

1.  Speaking to a friendly audience of campaign donors in April 2008 in San Francisco, Barrack Obama talked about average Americans saying, “And it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
2.  Obama ends National Prayer Day services at White House: President Truman signed the first National Prayer Day proclamation; President Reagan made it permanent. For years, it was a staple on the WH calendar – but not in May 2009, President Obama’s first year in office.
3.  President Obama is the first president in America’s history to mention non-believers in an inaugural address when he said, “We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and non-believers.”
4.  Obama nominated three pro-abortion US ambassadors to the Vatican; The Vatican vetoed all three amid a grow­ing dispute between the White House and the Roman Catholic Church over the new administration’s support for abortion rights.
5.  President Obama continues to omit ‘Creator’ From Dec­laration of Independence: During a speech in Rockville, Maryland on October 18, 2010, he once again omitted the mention of man’s Creator as the source of his unalienable rights. This isn’t the first time.
6.  President Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus Unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law. [November 10, 2010]
7.  Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious free­dom ambassador, an official who works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress.
8.  The Department of Veterans Affairs was consistently cen­soring Veteran’s prayers by banning them from saying the words “God” and “Jesus” during funeral services at Houston National Cemetery.
9.  The Obama administration released its new health care rules in 2011 that override religious conscience protections for medical workers in the areas of abortion and contra­ception. Forcing private insurance plans to pay for morally controversial offerings such as contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients raises obvious questions regarding free­dom of conscience.
10.  Unlike previous presidents, Obama avoided any religious references in his Thanksgiving speech. “The president said his family was ‘reflecting on how truly lucky we are.’”
11.  Obama lifts restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, forcing taxpayers to fund pro-abortion groups that either promote or perform abortions in other nations. He signed the order just three days into his presidency. [Jan. 20, 2009]
12.  The Obama administration requires rewriting of govern­ment documents and a change in administration vocabulary to remove terms deemed offensive to Muslims including jihad, jihadists, terrorists, radical Islamic, etc. [April 7, 2010]
13.  President Obama directs the Justice Department to stop defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act. 2/23/1117
14.  The Obama administration refuses to investigate videos showing Planned Parenthood helping alleged sex traffickers get abortions for victimized underage girls.
15.  Obama allows homosexuals to serve openly in the military, reversing a policy originally instituted by George Wash­ington in 1778.
16.  While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occa­sions, this White House avoids traditional biblical holidays and events, but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.
17.  Obama’s Muslim advisers block Middle Eastern Christians’ access to the White House.

18.  The Obama administration makes apologies for Korans being burned by the U. S. military, but when Bibles were burned by the military, numerous reasons were offered why it was the right thing to do.

AMERICA’S MOST BIBLICALLY-HOSTILE U.S. PRESIDENT

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

Mr. Obama is against any kind of restriction on abortion and one of his first acts as president was to sign a bill (Mexico City Policy) allowing federal money to be spent on overseas abortions.

Moreover, in 2012, Newt Gingrich responded to a question on birth control from John King at the CNN presidential primary debate by saying:

“I just want to point out – in the 2008 campaign, not once did anybody in the elite media ask why Barrack Obama voted in favor of legalizing infanticide. So let’s be clear here. If we’re going to have a debate about who is the extremist is on these issues, it is President Obama, who as a State Senator voted to protect doctors who killed babies that survived an abortion. It is not the Republicans.”

President George W. Bush signed the federal version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. The bill allowed nurses to give aid to babies who survive abortions instead of having to leave them to die before of disposing them. Gingrich was referring to Obama’s votes as a state senator opposing the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act in 2001, 2002, and 2003.

Jill Stanek, a nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois, helped expose abortionists’ practice of abandoning babies (born alive) after failed abortions, leaving them to die in a hospital utility room.14 Ulti­mately, Obama gave ten different reasons for voting against the infant protection bill – from protests that it would undercut Roe v. Wade to allegations that Stanek and others lied under oath.

Regarding Obama’s radical views, Rush Limbaugh said the president’s vote against the Illinois version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act amounted to “the most shocking and underreported significant story I can ever remember.”

IT COULD NEVER HAPPEN IN AMERICA

Some believe God is already judging America, and others say His final judgment is right around the corner. With the massive increase in corruption and deception in government, we often forget it all results from sin and our sin nature. Perhaps God is allowing Christians to suffer the consequences of the politicians we have elected to represent us. America must turn back to God!

Laws continue to be passed, bills signed, and policies implemented that either go against our biblical values or threaten another one of our freedoms. This is not what our Founding Fathers intended.

Our founders understood the ways of man, the dangers of too much power, and the potential for tyranny so they established a Constitution to protect the people. They created checks and balances in an attempt to hold government accountable, while providing for individual freedoms at the same time. They placed the highest of values on religious freedom.

We’ve strayed dramatically away from their vision to the point of electing a president who does not seem to respect America. Why does he insist on radically transforming the United States? President Obama downplays America’s greatness, disrespects the Constitution, seems embarrassed of our history, and enacts policies against the Word of God. It is our job to put faith, character, and integrity back on the priority list of who we elect, not how well someone speaks in public or reads a teleprompter.

And in 2012, Americans voted – again.

Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD, since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of fools will destroy them (Proverbs 1:29-32).

Has America chosen to hate knowledge and to not fear the Lord? Is our complacency beyond cure? Are we at the point where God will not answer our cries? The Lord is a patient and compassionate God, but His anger won’t be held back forever. We must choose this day whether we will serve our culture or Christ. America once had God’s blessing and covering; His protection and His provision, but God is being blotted out of America. 

Christians are being silenced by accusations of hate and intolerance; and our very freedoms are being threatened. The government, liberal media, Hollywood, the abortion industry, academia, and the Obama administration are not going to defend biblical values—it’s up to you and me.

White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett said there’s no chance Attorney General Eric Holder will resign in light of the mounting evidence against the Obama administration including the IRS’ ongoing targeting of Christians, conservatives, Republicans, and Tea Party groups; (IRS commissioner met with Obama 157 times) and revelations that his Justice Department had been spying on journalists.

Jarrett made the overly confident statement this week, long ago having moved on from the deadly Fast and Furious scandal and the tragic Benghazi attacks and murders, to name a few.

“Obviously, I know the president pretty well. And I know the attorney general very well. And he will be in his position for quite a while.”

Jarrett and Obama helped bring Chicago politics to the White House. A Republican with the same background would have been vetted extensively, covered 24/7 by the media, and would never be elected. The radical, leftist, progressive individuals who make up Obama’s close friends, associations and his administration also reflect his policies and worldview.

Class warfare. Racial politics. Marxism packaged as Christianity. America is evil. Islam is good. Twenty years involvement with Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church in Chicago. Friend of terrorists.

The following is an excerpt from ERADICATE: BLOTTING OUT GOD IN AMERICA:

The sad truth is many Americans today don’t care that prior to his election, Obama’s handlers concealed information about his college years and no official records were ever made available – a first in our history. No college transcripts, published records, or papers had been released. What were they hiding?

By the time Barack Obama made it to college at Occidental, Columbia and Harvard, you can be sure he had formed enough anti-American views to build on what he had already gleaned from his childhood men­tor, communist Frank Marshall Davis. Davis was a labor activist, writer, and community organizer as well as a Communist Party USA member. [Valerie Jarrett’s father, Vernon had close contact with Davis, and was also a Communist]

In 2010, Dr. John Drew, one of Barack Obama’s college friends, came forward and confirmed what many informed people already knew that Obama “was basically a Marxist-Leninist.” Drew talked about his past arguments with Obama about the many brands of Marxism:

“I see evidence of a continuing commitment to Marxist ideol­ogy…. In the Marxist model, the economy is the driving force behind change in the other spheres of society.”

Dr. John Drew did his senior honors thesis on Marxist economics at Occidental College, and he also founded the Democratic Student Socialist Alliance. He was a contemporary of Obama at Occidental and a Marxist himself. In fact, Drew was a well-known campus com­munist and was attracted to the college because Occidental was known for its Left-leaning politics and Marxist professors. Some even said it was considered “the Moscow of southern California.”

Occidental attracted America’s future president. Drew believed Obama was looking for a social revolution during his college days, and he expected a movement where “the working class would overthrow the ruling class” leading to a socialist utopia in America. Drew admitted how extreme he thought Obama’s views were at the time.

In 2010, John Drew was interviewed by Dr. Paul Kengor, an author, Reagan biographer, columnist, radio host, and Executive Director of The Center for Vision & Values. Drew admitted that at Occidental he was a comrade who leaned more toward the Frankfurt School of Marxism.

Here is a partial transcript of Dr. Kengor’s radio interview with John Drew: 

Drew: “I felt like I was doing Obama a favor by pointing out that the Marxist revolution that he and [our friends] were hoping for was really kind of a pipe dream, and that there was nothing in European history or the history of developed nations that would make that sort of fantasy – you know, Frank Marshall Davis fantasy of revolution – come true.”

Kengor: “So you had a realistic sense that even though you liked these ideas, it really couldn’t happen or really wouldn’t even work.”

Drew: “Right. I was still a card-carrying Marxist, but I was kind of a more advanced, East Coast, Cornell University Marxist….”

Kengor: “I know people are listening right now who want me to address this – and especially people who are Obama sup­porters. To be fair, I mean, look at where you were then and now where you are today.”

Drew: “Well, yeah, now I’m a Ronald Reagan, churchgoing, Baptist conservative.”

Kengor: “But now, okay, so what about Obama? Where do you think he is today? And to the people who are listening and are angry that we’re even having this conversation: Look, you don’t want us to talk about this because you don’t like what it says about Obama’s past, but we have to know this stuff about our presidents! “You can’t leave this out of biographies…  That’s why the background is so crucial – Frank Marshall Davis, what happened at Occidental, goes straight to Columbia from Occidental, the Bill Ayers affili­ation, no real-world experience – this matters….”

Drew: “Yeah, I think whenever he talks about people clinging to their guns and their religion due to economic stress, that’s just the standard Marxist argument. In fact, that’s the argu­ment of alienation and class-consciousness … the superficial religious and cultural ideals of the capitalist culture … and I really think he’s surrounded by people that share that mental architecture.”

Obama is surrounded by dangerous anti-Christian, socialism-loving people. They’ve plotted and pushed their agenda to transform America. Record numbers of people now rely on government assistance. We have record spending; increasing taxes, high energy, gas prices, and unemployment; racial and political division, the healthcare system takeover, and threats on our freedoms including speech and religion. And now, more invasions of privacy.

Government has become an enemy of American citizens and this administration is very good at using the tactics of distraction and diversion. With more of us becoming outraged while the media protects this administration, it will be fascinating to see this epic drama played out.

( Excerpt from chapter 10 in Eradicate: Blotting out God in America)

“The Left wants you to think that the cultural changes that have taken place in America since the 1960’s have done noth­ing but progress us forward to a brave new world … they’ve done everything in their power to dumb down our children, undermine our families, rewrite our history, and promote obscenity and immorality everywhere they can … the ideas that now dominate our educational system are focused on removing God and His influence from every part of our cul­ture.” – Curtis Bowers (Agenda Documentary producer)

“We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” – Barack Obama, 2008 “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign stu­dents. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists….” (Barack Obama, Dreams From My Father)

WHILE WE WERE SLEEPING

 The battle for the soul of America has long been waged. If only we had seen it coming. If only we had been warned 100 years ago or fifty … or twenty-five years ago, or maybe even in 2008. If only somebody would have told us about the imminent danger and the threat to destroy America. If only Christians could have seen the coming attack on Jesus Christ and assault on morality. Maybe concerned citizens could have resisted the transformation. If only one of the socialist leaders would have openly broadcasted a call to arms for radicals to seize power so we, our parents, or our grandparents could have known their intentions and fought back. If only the anti-American movement would have made their declaration of war public, then we would have stood against the enemy and resisted, wouldn’t we have?

But they were patient, and it happened gradually. It was a brilliant plan. One strategy enemies of God have used to neutralize opponents (we the people) is to convince us there was never an agenda against this country; that there are only rumors and fabrications. They say the deterioration of America has been natural and inevitable. To those of us who are awake and who understand the Bible, they are absolutely wrong; history reveals it, and evidence proves it true. If only we could have saved the United States of America. Maybe it’s not too late; per­haps there is still time….

Sadly, the rapid decline of our culture continues with little resistance; it’s happening right under our noses and right before our eyes. The implementation of an anti-Christian socialist agenda has been thrust on America over the last fifty-plus years and if not stopped, will lead to communism. This is the goal of the Left…

We can either remain in denial, or we can join the awakened move­ment of conservatives, independents, people of faith, and average Ameri­cans who want their country back. Two key questions are “who is doing this” and ”how are they doing it”? Most atheists, socialists and Marxists believe people would be much happier if Christianity was eradicated. Without strong people of faith standing for truth, their agenda would advance with little hindrance.

“The first requisite for the happiness of the people is the aboli­tion of religion.” And, “Religion is the opium of the masses.” – Karl Marx

RADICALS AMONG US

Socialism has taken over much of Europe, and the result has been chaos and unrest due to economic failures and increasing immorality. Though it is not always blatantly out in the open, socialism has been on our shores for over a century. There are those in America who are so focused on gaining power at any cost even some liberals question their tactics which is one reason we’ve seen divided factions in the Occupy Wall Street movement. They’ve always been here, but now more Americans are waking up.

Many of us were either oblivious that our country was in fact, drift­ing away from our roots, or we ignored it. Our culture has been com­promised as they have purposefully achieved their objectives through many of America’s most influential institutions. Radicals have been emboldened by allies in the White House who through their policies are helping to advance everything from environmental activism to social justice and wealth redistribution. They openly support anti-American countries and groups while disrespecting Israel and weakening our national defense.

As Christian conservatives, other than preaching the gospel, our main concerns must be the protection of free speech and religious liberty in America. They’d love to shut us up. Until we understand how deceptive and dishonest some of our opponents are, it will be hard to defend the constant attacks on our faith, family, and freedoms. We are seeing more and more class warfare, criticism of capitalism, and government intrusion on Ameri­can citizen’s basic rights including religious liberties…

But why socialism, and why did they choose this time in our history to try to make their move? Generations must have been dumbed down because anyone with a remote understanding of history knows millions lived under abject poverty and suffered worldwide under socialism. Never before have so many innocent people died while being subjected to narcissistic leaders and tyrants who fooled them by saying all the right things. But the media buries it, and our kids are not being taught the whole truth in government-run public education.

Whether it is communism, socialism, Marxism, or progressivism, they all lead to man’s worship of the State as provider instead of the American system that allows for and encourages people to see God as provider. The fact more Americans are considering ideas and “isms” like what we see today – after all of the climactic failures of socialism around the world – is beyond comprehension. If people don’t know bib­lical truth and American heritage, it’s no wonder some are not capable of reasoning and resisting this anti-Christian agenda…
