AMERICA IS IN CRISIS. WHAT CAN WE DO?
WILL POLITICIANS HEAR OUR PLEAS? DO THEY HAVE THE SOLUTIONS?
WHO CAN HELP WITH ALL THE NATURAL DISASTERS? WHAT’S COMING NEXT?
WHO CAN RESTORE HOPE FOR THE FUTURE?
WILL YOU BE PART OF THE SOLUTION?
Please join Americans from all across the nation on August 6, 2011 at Reliant Center in Houston, Texas.
The solution is recorded in 2 Chronicles 7:14,
“If My people which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
The solution is to turn from our wicked ways and humbly ask God for forgiveness. If that’s the key, then the crisis must be the result of our sinfulness and must be punishment. Like any father, punishment is measured and administered for the purpose of teaching that sin has consequences. America was once a blessed nation and can be again. TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS and SEEK HIS FACE AND FORGIVENESS. That’s the path for returning to a blessed state and a blessed life. Teach it to your children and grandchildren for their sakes.
There will be opposition, as always. No matter how worthy the action, someone always takes issue. Ignore them. Let those people remain in stagnation and crisis. Be one who is coming out and DON’T LOOK BACK.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
This is the White House in Washington, D.C. It is currently occupied by this president.
This speech is dispicable for so many reasons. Particularly offensive are the comments beginning at 19:00 in the speech.
The history of the border fence, what little there is, begins with a 14 mile stretch in SanDiego, California, which border patrol agents have said is effective for that area. The rest of the 2100 mile U.S. Mexico border remained wide open until Republican Pres. George W. Bush signed a bill into law in 2006 which would build another 700 mile segment, still leaving 1400 unprotected miles.
“The bill was introduced on Sep. 13, 2006 by Peter T. King (R-NY). In the House of Representatives, the Fence Act passed 283 -138 on September 14, 2006. On September 29, 2006 – the Fence Act passed in the Senate 80 -19. Most Republicans voted in support of the Fence Act while most Democrats voted against it.” From Wikipedia Source: Obama & McCain back-to-back speeches at NALEO Jun 28, 2008
Take note that it was a Republican who proposed the bill and Republicans who voted for it and Democrats who opposed it and voted against it. Would there be any fence if the President’s party had their way? NO. They voted against it.
As a U. S. Senator, Obama voted for the fence, but has since backed away, sensing the disapproval of Latino Democrat voters, as did Hillary Clinton. As if he lived in a cacoon somewhere on Mars, he answered a question about his position on the border and illegal immigration this way:
“For all the noise and anger that too often surrounds the immigration debate, America has nothing to fear from today’s immigrants. They have come here for the same reason that families have always come here–for the hope that in America, they could build a better life for themselves and their families. Like the waves of immigrants that came before them and the Hispanic Americans whose families have been here for generations, the recent arrival of Latino immigrants will only enrich our country.” Barack Obama, Source: Obama & McCain back-to-back speeches at NALEO Jun 28, 2008 http://www.ontheissues.org/international/barack_obama_immigration.htm
Nothing to fear from all those illegal immigrants. Don’t fear the drug cartels that behead their victims and dump the headless bodies in public places to terrorize citizens. No need to fear the high-powered weapons they use to gun people down on our side of the border. The thefts, property destruction, rapes and kidnappings should not disturb our sleep at night. We should feel perfectly safe with drug cartels targeting our kids with highly addictive drugs and dangerous gangs ruling some neighborhoods and initiating new members with drive-by shootings, or settling turf wars by murdering their rivals. Don’t worry about being caught in a cross-fire. And as you write that big check to the IRS and your state and local taxes, don’t worry about how much of it is required to finance the jam-packed prisons and jails needed to house all the illegal alien criminals that will probably get out someday and commit another crime.
(This is where there should be a photo of people killed by illegals, but gore isn’t needed. Everyone except the guy behind the heavily guarded fence at the White House knows what’s going on at our border.)
After Obama moved to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue behind heavily-guarded fences, the clamor for a southern border fence grew too loud to ignore. Fox News had reporters on-site filming lots of illegals streaming across umimpeded. They filmed the large number of guns and weapons confiscated from apprehended illegals and the truckloads of drugs netted.
What happens when someone climbs the U.S.-Mexican border fence most of the time?
What happens when someone climbs the fence at Obama’s residence?
Does Obama feel unsafe without a fence, or without guards at the fence? Does he fear for his family? The citizens of the border states fear for their safety and the safety of their families, too. They appealed to Obama for help. To be fair, Obama and his Homeland Security Chief, Janet Napolitano, who also believes the border is safe, even though she said just the opposite when she was the governor of Arizona, decided to build a high tech fence rather than a physical one. Oh wait! That was also a Republican Pres. George W. Bush project! Obama and Napolitano cancelled it, offering nothing in its place. The project was too expensive and didn’t work, costing $1 billion and five wasted years. Cancelled in 2010, it was the last effort to build a barrier to illegals.
Obama lives safely behind a physical fence with human guards, dogs and security cameras, while Texans, Arizonans, New Mexicans, Californians, and many states northward, live in danger, possesions stolen and/or defaced, and have to endure Obama telling them that the fence is finished, he added plenty of border patrol and the nation is safer than it’s ever been. EVERYONE IN THE BORDER STATES KNOWS ITS UNTRUE!
To add insult to injury, Obama sarcastically mocked and laughed at the people in danger without admonishing the illegals climbing the fence portion that does exist, without demanding that the murder, human trafficking, drug running, rape, theft and property damage stop. Without the slightest stern warning to the law-breakers, Obama insults the victims! A higher fence, Mr. President? How about any fence? How about tearing down that fence around the White House and leaving it down until there is a fence around the U.S.?
The web site for the U. S. Customs and Border Protection Agency above provides a map of the U.S.-Mexico border showing the progress of the border fence. A green line is finished fence. A yellow line is fence under construction. A red line is fence that is planned but not yet under construction. You will notice a lot of green lines, but note that there are breaks in the line that amount to miles. You will also notice that Texas is wide open, with only a small portion of fencing at El Paso. I wonder why Obama made his “fence speech” at El Paso rather than further south in Texas. I know why he didn’t choose to go to Arizona. He is suing them. This is the only map on their site and it’s dated 12/29/2009. It appears that nothing has been planned since then and no construction is under way. That represents the two years that Obama has been in the White House, yet in his speech he talks as if he has finished the fence and satisfied everyone’s requests, but Republicans keep moving the goal posts.
Regarding his statement that “they will want a higher fence”, it might be a good idea, considering all the video of illegals climbing over the existing fence. What good is a fence that can be scaled?
This was not the speech of a statesman. Not the speech of an informed politician. Not the spirit of a president of the United States. This was a vindictive slap at those who dared fight back when he said “no.” The border states asked for federal border control to keep them safe. They were rebuffed. When they had no other choice but to defend themselves, Obama sued the state of Arizona to block them from their own defense. While no one has asked for a mote or an alligator, Obama has dogs that can tear your leg off if you climb his fence.
Obama incorrectly assumes that the only aliens crossing our border illegally are honest hard-working Mexicans coming here to work so they can feed their families. Well, how honest can they be if they break the law to get here, take a fake social security number, falsify documents to conceal their immigrant status, take pay in cash to avoid paying taxes, use our welfare and medical benefits reserved for citizens, etc., etc., etc.? Since none of these illegals check in with anyone, they can be from any country with any motive, such as felons escaping prison in their home countries, Al Qaeida, Hamas, Hezbollah, Chinese spies, Russian spies, Venezuelans, virtually anyone with any motive – terrorism being the highest on the list.
Obama has forgotten that he is the president of the United States and should behave accordingly, sensitive to the needs of all citizens, and not a stand-up comic taking shots at people he doesn’t like.
Shame on Mr. Obama.
Where did these guns come from? The government’s deadly Fast and Furious gun running scheme?

So the fence is finished, high enough, there’s enough border patrol and we are safe. Hogwash!Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )

MSNBC ONLINE: “MICHELLE OBAMA TALKS FATHERHOOD” Posted Thursday, July 10, 2008 at 3:46 p.m by Domenico Montanaro
From NBC/NJ’s Carrie Dann
KANSAS CITY, Mo.
“The Kansas City roundtable, held at the city’s University of Missouri campus, was the aspiring First Lady’s second in as many days. Yesterday, she held a similar event in Pontiac, Michigan, before a crowded auditorium of mostly black women where they discussed soaring health care costs and unemployment.
Today’s audience was also made up of almost all women, but the crowd in the more affluent university area was more mixed. Participants mentioned college-loan payments and day-care fees as monthly costs that drive them to scrimp and cut corners.
Obama used the roundtable audience, as she did yesterday, to describe her husband’s understanding of women’s issues through the prism of the strong — but sometimes struggling — women in his life.
His own mother, she said at the beginning of her remarks, was “very young and very single when she had him.” And, Obama added, he has observed his wife’s attempts to reconcile motherhood with her career aspirations.
“He sees me, his wife, who struggles every day with that guilt that we all hold deep in our hearts as women,” she said. “That guilt that you don’t have the choice to stay home, and even if you do, you feel guilty.”
“He has seen me struggle with this my entire life,” she added. “Trust me, Barack understands the struggles of women.””
An online search for documents in the public domain resulted in this article, which was a complete surprise. Has any television or cable news organization reported this? If not, then why not? This article puts this quote squarely on Michelle Obama’s lips. This is not from Fox News. It is MSNBC, home of Chris Matthews, who has a tingle up his leg when he hears Barack Obama speak.
Does this have any bearing on the Obama certificate of live birth posted online by his aides? Don’t know. Would the original long form birth certificate hold different information? Don’t know. That’s the problem. No one really knows. But Obama says his parents, Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. were married February 2, 1960. Yet, Michelle, his wife, says that Barack’s mother was very young and very single when Barack was born. Michelle said this during Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008. She’s been married to Barack for years and met his relatives. This wasn’t a slip of the tongue. It was a deliberate statement purposely tying to the subject of the gathering. At the very least, even Obama’s own wife doesn’t know the truth about his birth. Why is it wrong to ask the President of the United States to prove his birth facts and his eligibility to be President?Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 1 so far )
H.J. Resolution #5: Proposing an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.
Proposed to the 111th Congress on January 6, 2009 (just days before Obama was sworn in as President) by Democrat Jose Serrano of the 16th District of New York.
On February 9, 2009 this proposal was referred to the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.
If you’ve ever wondered how countries like Germany, Venezuela, Iran and Russia lose their democracies and come under the oppressive rule of a dictator, this is the method. No one is covering this story in the media. American citizens aren’t fighting this take-over move because they don’t know about it. In the meantime, Congress is passing more and more laws that limit our freedoms and make large numbers of society dependent on the government, so that they cannot afford to resist whatever the government does.
America is under attack by the radical left on every front and from every angle. Their intentions are just as serious as those of a country who would attack us with their military. The strategy to win includes overwhelming us with measures, so that we can’t focus on any, long enough to win the battle, and to stretch our resources too thin to be effective.
Those in defense of America’s freedoms must organize, divide the issues among subgroups and then take the actions requested by each subgroup.
One group could take up the H.J. 5 proposal and fight for all of us. When they notify the rest of us that we need to contact our officials, march in the streets, wear ribbons, sport bumper stickers, write blogs, send out emails, or whatever is needed, then we all should do it.
Another subgroup could take up the universal health care issue. Another group could attack the cap and trade issue. Every issue should have its own subgroup, researching the issue, investigating the principles (politicians supporting it, people and companies lobbying for it and standing to gain from it), following the money trail and the perks trail, uncovering backroom deals and corruption, exposing the truth and calling the rest of us to action.
We can and MUST get this done and do it immediately. The Tea Parties awakened the silent majority and are working to figure out how to protect America from the current onslaught. They need to come together and follow the plan above. Of course, that is not the only thing we need to do, but we must start this plan now before it’s too late.
People who have gifts, talents, expertise, special abilities for a particular area must volunteer to form a subgroup, head it up or at the very least, serve in one in the area of their expertise.
If you’re a lawyer, perhaps you could form a subgroup of lawyers who would take cases to the Supreme Court to strike down recent legislation, corrupt political behaviors, Obama’s actions, Obama’s take over of private businesses, Obama’s czar structure bypassing Congress, and the Democrat tactic of forcing votes on bills that no one has read or understands, etc.
Perhaps you are able to propose bills to accomplish the things listed above and get them passed with the help of a subgroup. You may be a talented administrator or public relations person who could co-ordinate the subgroups nationally. Others may be expert fund raisers to bring in the monetary support needed for this monumental endeavor.
Then, above all, we need to vet every volunteer and make certain that this effort is never co-opted by the enemies of freedom, nor infiltrated by the leftists to divide and conquer or cause dissension within. That is another subgroup that should be formed first.
Americans, we are now in the fight of our lives. Our very freedom is at stake. There are things in the 300 page amendment to the cap and trade bill that endangers our liberties and submits U.S. to the United Nations – another bunch of leftist crooks.
Please consider these ideas and do everything you can. Don’t wait. Your children deserve the same freedom you grew up with. We are the last bastion of individual liberty, freedom and the pursuit of happiness. When that’s gone, it’s gone from the world.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( None so far )
