    Obama is an Obamist first and foremost. Once you grasp that, you can explain most of what he says and does.
  • #115
    Obama is not an Islamist. In related news, he was not a real "Constitutional scholar," "Law Professor," "Community Organizer" or even employed full-time in the law profession.

    Obama ran for House of Representatives in 2000 but lost to Bobby Rush by a 2-to-1 margin. The ONLY reason that Obama won a Senate seat in 2004 was because the Democratic Party and Republican Party front-runners both had scandals leaving a vacuum by which a goofy politician with a padded resume could actually win the seat.

    Yeah, Obama is as ambiguous as a man as he is with his purposely ambiguous fluff rhetoric meant to pacify people who want to hear whatever hope to hear.
  • #205
    There is a small non-narcissistic element to His Excellency's words and deeds; the administration is clearly Marxist, anti-Israel and pro-Iran, and I think that comes from Valerie Jarrett, Obama's policy expert.

    Various people have pointed out that Obama's circle in Chicago contains some notorious antisemites like Reverend Wright, but I don't think Obama is engaged enough to hate anybody who has not offended him personally.
  • #207
    But how can you complain about his policies when they are basicly the same policies as the last 3 presidents? What you really find wrong is that he is not a rich white radical right wing republican willing to be owned and controlled by the agenda of what big money wants big money gets.
  • #216
    @edzu There's some truth in what you're saying, although not many people would call Bill Clinton a "rich white radical right wing republican", and you'd have to go back 4 presidents to find one I liked. Those last 3 presidents, though, had at least one thing going for them - a consistent foreign policy of supporting our allies and subverting our enemies. The current one treats our two closest allies, Britain and Israel, like we used to treat Albania and Romania.

    I have called him a sympathizer long before any of the pundits had the b---- to say it. Starting with his support for the Muslim Brotherhood now removed from power in Egypt .
  • #222
    I don't believe the situation in Egypt is as simple as you imply. The Muslim Brotherhood (whose commitment to democracy I strongly question!) did win a free and fair democratic election. And isn't one the pillars of American foreign policy to promote democracy? Wasn't "bringing democracy to the Middle East" one of the stated goals of our invasion of Iraq in 2003?
    Supporting Egypt financially and militarily and inducing them to maintain peace with Israel have been goals of the U.S. since the Camp David accords (6 Presidents!). When the Muslim Brotherhood came to power, the U.S. continued its support in hopes of their maintaining Egypt's non-agression pact with Israel and non-support of Hamas.
    Am I wrong?
  • #233
    @Denny75 The muslim brotherhood in Egypt called for the destruction of Israel and ended the closed border policy that aloud arms to be sent to Hamas. The administration knew that and continued to send weapons including tanks and F-16's to the brotherhood then in control of the Egyptian government. So you tell me if you were wrong in your assessment ?

    His Islamist accusations come from not cracking down on Muslim hate speech and calls for action in over throwing governments, including our own in our own country and for siding with the Palestinians in Israel. ISIS/ISIL(which means the same thing) does need to be put down. More air strikes are needed! Obama should also stop aiding the Syrian rebels! That is just aiding ISIS! We pulled out of Iraq too soon. Full forces were still needed. Afghanistan will also fall when we leave, but that mission was to take out Osama binLaden and his minions. That was done. It was never meant to reorganize the nation. There will never be peace in the Middle East! Egypt is doing fine on it's own. ISIS is the threat that should be taken down! They are not a nation! They are a terrorist organization. Past that, we should only concentrate on having Israel's back! Obama does not. He stopped all military trade with Israel. That has to change! He is the first president to turn his back on Israel. Other presidents have squabbled with the Israeli leaders at the time, but none turned their backs on Israel! I firmly believe Palestinians should all be expelled from Israel! They don't belong there and should have left with the rest in 1948!
  • #72
    The lack of credible evidence of bin laden's confirmed ID & the oh-so convenient death of Seal Team 6 coupled with rumors of his death years prior don't help him either.
  • #193
    We still send Billions in aid to Israel, if that's the definition of turning you back on something... I wish he would turn his back on me. If siding with the Palestinians means affirming Israels right to defend itself while it kills 100X more civilians with it's bombs than Hamas kills with it's rockets, I sure hope he never sides with me.

    Cracking down on free speech? How do you think that would work out for him?

    ISIL is not our problem. Syria and Iraq...are not US territory.

    Calling for the elimination or removal of all Palestinian people from Palestinian territory is the obvious goal of Israeli policy, however I believe you are jumping the gun by acknowledging that policy already. Israel still officially denies that goal.

    "Push ISIS back", that's the most useless thing I've ever heard. The President has said this a few times. What exactly does that mean? Pushing them back isn't getting rid of them. And yes, the Middle East is a mess. Obama has sat on his hands for 6 yrs. Anti-Jew? It certainly looks that way! The most consistent thing he has shown is apathy.
  • #189
    It means he wants to make it look like he is doing something when really he isn't. By doing nothing they accumulate more money to arm their forces. Which by controlling the oil field is to the tune of 3 mill a day. This is why he did nothing about it for over a month now.
  • #277
    No sane person would equate 2100 Palestinian deaths with 71 Israeli deaths.
    Not one more penny to Israel.
    We have enough welfare "taker" States to support here at home in the South, and 68 years of propping up a bad U.N. decision that has sucked billions away from helping our own folks is quite enough. Have we sent a trillion dollars in support to Israel yet...we must be getting close to that number of dollars taken off the backs of Americans over the last 7 decades.

    Ah...but there are ALWAYS options.

    It appears POTUS is doing exactly what 3 out of 4 Americans STILL want him to do....bitch-slap the war-drummers, and do everything in his power to NOT get America sucked into a No-Win war in Syria.

    Of course, there will always be dim bulbs in America that think destabilizing every Middle Eastern country, one-by-one, with no possible long-term chance of success, until it all blows up, and Israel is forced to launch a good thing.

    Oh, how folks yearn for that mystical, magical, "my dick is bigger than yours" American dick-waggling pissing contest that Conservatives refer to as " smart foreign policy!:

    Republican Foreign Policy/Middle East War Strategy:

    "Light Fuse."
    "Get away."
    "Do not use unless supervised by adults."

    Americans have decided it is best that we ensure conservatives and NeoCons just stick to playing at home with their Safe 'n Sane Fireworks,$39.99 Neighborhood "Golden Showers" Deluxe Package..........and leave the real military strategy brainwork to the adults in the room.
    We've seen how it works out when the "mushroom clouds over America", "they'll lick our boots as Liberators", and "the enemy is in the last throes of insurgency" crowd was allowed to touch the levers of power in our great Nation.

    9 and a half weeks to Judgement Day, and every "sure thing" Red State Senate seat race is somehow in a dead heat. Whuzzup with that?

    And......the hate continues but I guess that's nothing new. Do we the people expect "Superman"? Presidents are just flawed people who are advised by flawed people. History is ripe with flawed presidents--men who were hated. Examples: George Washington was derided as despotic; Abraham Lincoln was an ape, the devil himself during the Civil War; Andrew Johnson avoided impeachment by one vote; Harding spent his presidency playing poker, drinking and chasing women; Woodrow Wilson wanted to subvert American freedom for a world government; FDR was reviled as a socialist; JFK was a Catholic who wanted to subvert America to Vatican guidance; Jimmy Carter was an appeaser; Reagan a Soviet-obsessed war-mongerer, hell-bent on accelerating Armageddon with the "evil empire" of the USSR; Bill Clinton an architect of America's moral depravity; George W. Bush was a simpleton, hell-bent on destroying America by imperial overreach in foreign lands; so what's new? Technology--the ability to send hate, lies, innuendo, racist remarks, and scandal across the world in seconds. Many of us take the time to research/fact check the published info but many others don't. MOVE ON, People. You don't have a perfect president NOW and you won't have one next time around...or the next time or the next time.

    Take a good look at the state of the Middle East prior to the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq and the instability those conflicts caused. I was for doing something in Afghanistan but not what he did. I realize this approach is not clean and simple and it must take into account a myriad of interrelationships no one who has a real job has time to really follow but my answer is that his actions set in motion much that was not anticipated. The void caused by the removal of Saddam created very fertile fields for the islamists. We should have kept the no fly zone intact, yes the UN would have approved an extension, helped the Kurds protect themselves and finished the #$%^& job in Afghanistan. Leaving Iraq? Never should have invaded. Your final sentence is the key to your understanding the issue.

  • #489

    The world is filled with charlatans such as Swaggart, and easily identified. The following best describes these uunscrupulous 'churchoids' that try to associate themselves with Christ. TOTOH, Pee-Wee Herman-Hussein shares the same flagrant disregard of the truth, integrity and honor as Swaggart!--

    "This testimony is true. Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not devoting themselves to Jewish myths and the commands of people who turn away from the truth. To the pure, all things are pure, but to the defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their minds and their consciences are defiled. They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work." -- Titus 1:13-16

    "And he said to them,“Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written,“‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men.” And he said to them,“You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition!" -- Mark 7:6-9

    "But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people." -- 2 Tim. 3:1-9

    Having said that--

    There is no comparison between the teachings of Jesus Christ (Bible) and Mohammad (Quran) One taught brotherly love, compassion and salvation. The other taught hate, coercion and murder!

    Most Americans are completely ignorant of the religion of Islam and Muslims in general. We have been spoon fed the idea in this country, that Islam is a religion of peace, which is a total fabrication of what Islam really teaches. The Quran teaches "death to the Infidel (unbelievers)," or, "Conversion by the Sword." A religion of peace? Hardly! I speak from personal experience -- having lived and worked in the M.E.

    "The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter."

    "Muhammad was a military leader, laying siege to towns, massacring the men, raping their women, enslaving their children, and taking the property of others as his own. On several occasions he rejected offers of surrender from the besieged inhabitants and even butchered captives. He actually inspired his followers to battle when they did not feel it was right to fight, promising them slaves and booty if they did and threatening them with Hell if they did not. Muhammad allowed his men to rape traumatized women captured in battle, usually on the very day their husbands and family members were slaughtered." So, what's new?

  • #490

    BTW, we will never return to the pinnacle of prominence we once had! It's been replaced by an INCREASINGLY Godless society, filled with depravity, Corruption, immorality and lack of individual responsibility. Our founders had a different perspective on the success or failure of this Republic--

    The biggest critics of God and his written word, are the most ignorant of both! Religion is mans invention, the Bible on the otherhand, is a Philosophy handed down to man by God for "teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for discipling in righteousness, that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work." (2 Tim. 3:16, 17)

    52 of the 55 signers of the Declaration of Independence were deeply-committed Christians. The other three all believed in the Bible as the divine truth, the God of scripture, and his personal intervention. This same first Congress formed the American Bible Society. Immediately after creating the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress voted to purchase and import 20,000 copies of scripture for the people of this nation.

    "It cannot be emphasized too strongly that this great nation was founded -- not by religionists -- but by Christians ... on the Gospel of Jesus Christ." ~Patrick Henry

    Adams, in a speech to the military in 1798 he warned his fellow countrymen stating, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion ... Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." ~John Adams

    "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is their duty – as well as privilege and interest – of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers."
    ~ John Jay

    (Jefferson's Letter to Benjamin Rush). "To the corruptions of Christianity I am indeed, opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only sense in which he wished any one to be; sincerely attached to his doctrines, in preference to all others; ascribing to himself every human excellence; and believing he never claimed any other." ~Thomas Jefferson, April 21.1803

    "[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
    "Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness ... it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof." ~Benjamin Franklin, Continental Congress, 1778

    "Resistance to tyranny becomes the Christian and social duty of each individual..... Continue steadfast and, with a proper sense of your dependence on God, nobly defend those rights which heaven gave, and no man ought to take from us." ~John Hancock, History of the USA, Vol. II, p. 229.
    Once again, don't confuse religion with God's written word, the Bible. Several of our founders, including Jefferson, had contempt for so called organized religion as being hypocritcal by not following the precepts of Jesus Christ!

    And so it tiz.....
