Let's speak truthfully. As I see it, Obama would never have been elected to this prestigious position, had it not been for the white vote. Regardless of how many times Obama protested that (his) Race was not an issue in this 2008 Presidential election, he played the black folk like a fiddle.
Worse, yet, the white folk who have demonstrated the most guilt about blacks in the United States enslavement history are the ones who also received access to all of the gains which resulted from the hard-won fight for the civil rights of blacks. And, through the strong resolve of all men and women of good will beyond race, creed, and color, Americans overcame. However, there are still too many who refuse to get out of the way and let us come over.
Nevertheless, if it were not for the votes from many of the white college students and white baby boomers, too, then Barack Obama would never have been headed for the White House as President today. As the campaigns proceeded, it was almost a given that Obama's rhetoric would get him the larger portion of the black vote across the nation. And he got it, including from among all age groups and races. Indeed, he was hailed as a brand new savior and messiah of the whole world. In fact, Nairobi, Kenya, Africa has hailed Obama as their son who will provide for them, because it is the land of his father's birth. And, until we receive evidence to the contrary, it might possibly be Obama's (the son's) birthplace as well. And, that ought to tell you something about what we can expect up ahead!
But, when we still hear so much talk about whites being racists and bigots in America, where does that mentality come from? More often than not, it comes straight from out of the mouths and hearts of many young, hip hop blacks and their university instructors of every hue and temperament and from down on the block or up in the hood or far out from the burbs.
Following the 2008 general presidential election, when commenting on the outcome of the Democratic Party's win which ushered in an Obama victory, Rev. Harry Jackson, a black pastor and Republican in Maryland, wrote as his conclusions that, as he said, Christian conservatives must change our witness to conform to secular, political demands in order to maintain a role as leaders of a Godly, moral, righteous, and just purpose in the free world.
I do not agree with what I see as being Rev. Jackson's "beatdown" of Americans no matter what color he is and we all are. Where is the hope in that message of his? In the Lord Jesus, there is always hope in any seemingly hopeless-looking situation for the faith-filled believers who profess to be Christian.
Among other things that Rev. Jackson wrote in his commentary was that conservatives who continue to fight for the truth to be fully revealed about Barack Obama are "paranoid." Needless to say, I do not agree with that assessment of his, either.
I recognize and acknowledge that the Democrat Party and Obama trounced the Republicans and won the 2008 Presidential and Congressional elections. But, it appears that Rev. Jackson placed total blame on Christian conservatives for that political defeat, because we were not secular enough.
However, neither the Republican Party's Presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain, nor his Vice-Presidential running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, nor any of the millions of Americans who rallied around their clearly articulated call to put "Country First" for the change we need could have been any more beneficial to the call for traditional values and morals than was demonstrated.
What we have not heard stated enough, if at all, is that the McCain-Palin ticket was not assembled until at the last stages of the electoral contest in 2008, while Obama and his team had been on the Presidential campaign trail since before 2004, when he stepped upon the national stage at the DNC. And, instead of being true to federal election laws, policies, and procedures for political campaigns, Obama circumvented them and changed them as many times as he could with impunity and without accountability or sanctions. Moreover, we still know even less about Obama than we knew before he first appeared on the national stage.
What is more, Barack Obama and Michelle, his wife, since both of their community organizing days, have worked together to amass a political force of millions of people and dollars to specifically form coalitions to overtake and replace the constitutionally mandated government of the United States. It is that unexpected national and international phenomenon which they used to get the unprecedented amount of money and people to help push them into the White House (almost).
Unlike Rev. Harry Jackson, I believe it is crucial that Americans keep digging and, if dirt turns up, then we will all be the better for it. What's more, until and unless Obama and his enablers account for the many holes in his life which have all been deliberately left unaddressed, then America's welfare and defense will always remain in doubt as long as Obama sits in the Oval Office as the President and Commander in Chief. And we can do no less than to demand full disclosure, because our government and the mainstream media have been remiss in that regard.
Christian conservatives cannot afford to either let up or tone down our witness. If anything, we must increase it as we serve God daily and continue to work in every area of life to make a definite difference. This is not the time for the Christians to turn to secularism for solutions. For, if we are intimidated or harassed into being silent, then the blackness that covers the earth now would totally engulf us and the generations to come, if the Lord tarries. What's more, while the ungodly folk work as hard as they do to remove every reminder of God from the land and the minds of mankind, they have hijacked all that is Godly and have remade it for their purposes into a humanist and secularist covering for gullible Americans.
Christians are God-fearing people who will neither be silenced in the face of oppression nor allow our faith to ever be squelched. We will neither allow our individual freedoms to be stripped nor will we be bullied into being ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Personal Savior.
Our Good Fight of Faith Continues For the --
- truth to be manifested surrounding Barack Obama.
- right of all children to be born alive and to live beyond abortions.
- People like the late, semi-comatose Terri Schiavo to remain alive.
- leaders like Judge Roy Moore who fought against Alabama removing the 10 Commandments monument from his courthouse.
- American flag to not be burned and trampled on.
- Christian church to remain free to PREACH and live pleasing in the sight of God and man.
- American youth to be saved from the sexual perversion of every filthy sort.
- God to be uppermost in the family, church, school, government, business, and every area of life of all who know and love God.
I have been a Preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for more than 20 years. Even from the beginning, my walk as a black Baptist woman cleric has never been easy. But, my trust, faith, and love of God is what keeps me faithful even when the hell hounds are on my trail. And, I hope to never allow anybody or anything to make me veer away from my faith or compromise my love of God to please any human or organization, including the church.
Too many Christians and others in this whole world are being led to believe that the shed blood of Jesus Christ is not enough to save all mankind. But, if that were true, then we would need to give up, change our profession of faith, and hide our name as Christians who demonstrate that God is real, alive, and in total control of all things in heaven and on earth, including any human no matter how sincerely they might believe they will live forever on their own power. Not so!
Why Is the Obama for America Campaign Still Soliciting Donations From People and Still Acting in the Campaign Mode?
Even though, as of this date, Obama is not yet officially the President of the United States, the Presidential Campaign is over. Yet, they are still sending out solicitations for donations from his (Obama's) email addy. They continue to act as if there is no rule of law to abide by. But, the Obama faction and all those who have tried to place him on the Throne of heaven down here on earth must understand that many of us have lived through the Nixonian Presidency and the resultant Watergate flush. We remember when Vice President Spiro Agnew tried to intervene early on in Nixon's behalf by attempting to shut up the press. It sounded ridiculous at the time and even Agnew was eventually caught up in an investigation that led to him having to plead Nolo Contendre and he had to bid an early adieu to this nation. As I recall, Nixon had capitulated to a cover up which led to his eventually having to step down as President before his second term ended or else he would have had to face Impeachment proceedings (with a capital "I").
Obama and his Chicago gang need to know that, as a Godly, elderly woman has often said, "You might get by, but you won't get away." I like to remind people that Nixon didn't go to jail! But all of his men who obeyed his illegitimate orders served time. They need to understand from the outset that Americans will never settle for anyone in that Office of President who thinks they can use that power to abuse others. They will never accept any leader in that Office who thinks they are above the law and that they can lead Americans astray from the Godly and the Constitutional paths.
No matter what they and the United States Congress would say about it, this is neither a banana republic nor a third world regime as with Idi Amin or any socialist dictatorship of Hugo Chavez or communist dictatorship of the Castro brothers. Americans are peace-loving people, but they will fight the forces of Hell to preserve whole our life in Christ Jesus knowing that we shall prevail, if we do not faint in the midst of the battle. For, we know that we are already winners in the Lord. Triumphantly so! And God is our Guide.
Christians, be encouraged. Stay alert and stay on guard. God is not dead. He has not failed us. But, too many of mankind have failed God and us. Continue to "Fight the good fight of faith" with every ounce of the power and the authority given you by almighty God. And, if you personally reject that and never intend to do that, then no matter who you are, then step aside and move out of my way, because play time is over and I'm going through!
God bless our military wherever they serve.
God bless America. God bless Americans.
God bless all who know and love God, and
God bless all who need to know God to love Him!
