"Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away. For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits." - James Chapter 1 vv. 9-11
Following the 2008 election and the announced nominee Barack Obama as the "Winner," Americans are now in the time of reflection. Wednesday, when I was in a local bookstore, I asked the young, white clerk if he had voted? He answered that he had. I then asked how he felt about the result. He answered that he didn't even know anything about the one who was elected but that he had been told he would bring change. So, he said he thought it was time for a change and voted for him (Obama).
My response was to let the young man know it would be wise to get informed and to stay alert to what is going to take place in the coming year. He said, "Well, we can hope." As I was leaving the store, I told him that we must hope and pray.
Today, I received an email from the Presidential Prayer Team. They led by congratulating the new President, Barack Obama, and calling for Christians to pray for him. My immediate response was to unsubscribe, by sending the following reply to the team.

You don't invite the devil into your confidence and expect him to change. There are some things we don't pray for. This is one of them. Barack Obama is a fraud, liar, and manipulator. He is a divider and not a uniter.
This is based on his demonstrated acts and words over many years. And, as recently as during the November 4th elections, he looked into an interviewer's camera and lied about not knowing his Kenyan aunt was in the U.S., or that she was here illegally since 2004, after a judge had denied her petition to remain here and told her to leave the country. Obama further stated that he did not know where she was or how he could get in touch with her. But she had attended his swearing-in ceremony in 2004, as a Senator.
Obama's statement had been another blatant lie to the Americans, because his long-time friend, DeVal Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts where Obama's aunt lives in public housing, had people keeping an eye on her for Obama and his surrogates in order to keep the press from finding out her status, (which is that she has lived in America illegally since 2004, when an immigration judge ordered her to return to Kenya).
DeVal Patrick is also a longtime friend and appointee of the Clinton Administration. Obama is a lawyer and Michelle is a lawyer. They have many lawyer and political friends.
Even the owner of Google is a friend of Obama and he travelled on the stump with him. So, Obama can put his hands on anybody (in the nation and around the world) he has a mind to within (at least) a few hours or more.
The citizens of America have been greatly underserved by the MSM (news media), the Christian church, and the voters who considered only Obama's skin color over outstanding issues, substance, form, and Godly mandates.
We would be praying amiss for Obama's agenda. Obama is the people's choice -- not God's choice. Remember King Saul? He was the people's choice and God granted their desire. God also "repented that he had ever made Saul King over His people." Obama needs to be called to publicly give an account for all of his fraudulent and ungodly acts.
This nation needs to know those things which were kept hidden to deprive the citizenry from making an informed decision about his candidacy, which would lead to him and his questionable friends having access to the very Constitutional foundations upon which this nation was founded and for which he has expressed disdain on many occasions. (Obama is leader of the New Left Democrats who have worked for decades to do away with capitalism and usher in a socialist agenda in its place).
Even his Pastor and mentor of many years, Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. (Chicago, IL) warned that "Remember, he (Obama) IS a politician." He (Rev. Jeremiah Wright) told the truth that time!

As a parting thought, let me say to believers who just might not agree --- our God lives. He speaks. He proves His Word every time. And, when we think things do not go the way they should and they weep uncontrollably, it is not God who has failed mankind. But, it is mankind who has failed to discern, believe, receive, and obey the true and living God.
I am proud to have lived my life as an unhyphenated American! And, until this nation's citizens come to live their lives as Americans first, as McCain-Palin advocates "Country First," as it used to be, then there will be no more America as we once knew her to be.
America was for sale to the highest bidder. And the people that poor Americans have made into billionaires and millionaires purchased her. But at what cost?!
Pay attention! Look to the past and see what kind of political role redistricting cities across America had to do with the overwhelming black votes coming from urban areas. It goes without saying, too, that without the white voters and the MSMs buying into the Obama campaign propagandist lies and even our Congress turning its head to the many unethical findings about his campaign. And, at the same time, had the MSM not suppressed those findings on the national level, Obama would never have been elected, to say nothing of ACORNs part in this atrocious result.
It is time for the News Media to begin to step back, report the news as it is, and then let Americans decide. Stay tuned!
