Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. Barack Hussein Obama, desires to be known as a Christian. Fair enough, but having decreed the manner of faith by which he shall be known, Obama has by default, also decreed the standard by which he shall be measured. It has been said of many men that if they were charged with being a Christian, would there be sufficient evidence to convict them? Admittedly, living up to the standards given in the New Testament are tougher than ordering one’s life according to the dictates of the Old Testament. So, in the interest of fairness, this examination of the life of one Barack Hussein Obama will only be based on The Ten Commandments.
All verses quoted come from the King James Version of the Bible to avoid any possible discrimination against Obama on the basis of his critics having been given an opportunity to rewrite the scriptures to their benefit in advance of his trial. I am sure Obama would agree with me that the scriptures are meant to be interpreted only – not subjected to the whims of activist judges who can make up make up new or revised commandments as they go along – in effect, legislating from the bench. Come to think of it, adhering to King James is eminently fair because “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2nd Peter 1: 20-21). In essence, we even avoid any contemporary “interpretation” of The Ten Commandments under these conditions.
I apologize in advance to the defendant; given the fact The Ten Commandments constitute a collection of “negative rights”. But some things just can’t be avoided. Court is in session.
Count 1: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20: 3)
Timothy Noah, writing in Slate magazine on January 27, 2007, said ” Is Barack Obama—junior U.S. senator from Illinois, best-selling author, Harvard Law Review editor, Men’s Vogue cover model, and “exploratory” presidential candidate—the second coming of our Savior and our Redeemer, Prince of Peace and King of Kings, Jesus Christ? His press coverage suggests we can’t dismiss this possibility out of hand.” Noah (no relation to the original) then announces that he is inaugurating the Obama Messiah Watch – a periodic feature examining the evidence that Obama could indeed be our Savior, Alpha and Omega, the Prince of Peace, the Lord, the King of Kings – the Messiah.
Obama, himself, alluded to his Messianic powers when, On January 7, 2008, he appeared before the students and faculty of Dartmouth College. Speaking at a campaign rally just prior to the New Hampshire Primary, Obama said “… a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote” (for Obama). Several months later, during his nomination victory speech on June 3, 2008 in St. Paul, Minnesota, Obama became even more direct about his supposed Messianic powers. “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal,” said Obama, sounding absolutely Biblical.
Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan had the final say on the matter on February 24, 2008 when he proclaimed “You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”
Count 1 Verdict: Guilty.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20: 4-6)
Obama doesn’t worship any graven image – unless you count the graven idol of him he has constructed for the rest of us to follow. A blogger known only as Tiffany G., hits the nail on the head in “The Idol Worship of Obama“.
Speaking of his desire for us to prostate ourselves before him and cry “We’re not worthy!” Tiffany G. says:
This has always been the difference between the United States and Dictatorships: Idol Worship. Not anymore.
You know, sometimes, when walking down the street, I will see a fool wearing her Che Guevara t-shirt. I loathe her — for worshiping a monster she knows nothing about — or knows everything about, and still idolizes. And then I wonder what it must be like to be a Cuban, whose relatives were slaughtered at his hand — walking down the same street to see his family’s butcher memorialized on a five dollar t-shirt. I wonder what it must be like, for him to see Obama posters rendered in the exact same fashion as Che’s.
One of the closest people to me in life, comes from the former Soviet Union. When he sees this type of depiction — when he sees the Obama shirts and posters — it delivers flashbacks of the Soviet propaganda that plagued every street corner he walked. And invokes horrific memories of the oppression and horrors he endured.
And lo, Obama has chosen to be portrayed this way. In fact, he personally thanked the “street-artist,” Shepard Fairey (appropriate name), who came up with many of the Obama campaign posters you see now.
Shepard’s Obama posters are reworkings of the techniques of revolutionary propagandists — the bright colors, bold lettering, geometric simplicity, heroic poses — the “art with a purpose” created by constructivists in the early Soviet Union, like Alexander Rodchenko and the Stenberg brothers, and by America’s own Depression-era Works Projects Administration. Works on the walls of his studio and on his Web site include depictions of Sid Vicious, Chairman Mao, Noam Chomsky and Vladimir Lenin.
In a thank you letter to Shepard, Obama writes: “Dear Shepard, I would like to thank you for using your talent in support of my campaign. The political messages involved in your work have encouraged Americans to believe they can help change the status quo. Your images have a profound effect on people, whether seen in a gallery or on a stop sign.”
Thank you, Tiffany G… Nobody could have said it better.
Count 2 Verdict: Guilty.
Count 3: Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Exodus 20: 7)
This one is Bleeping Golden. Or, as Joe Bidenwould say, a big effing deal! An exhaustive investigation failed to find any evidence that Obama has taken the name of the Lord in vain. However, Terry Moran of ACB News did tweet that “Pres. Obama just called Kanye West a “jackass” for his outburst at VMAs when Taylor Swift won. Now THAT’S presidential.” In his defense, at least Obama knew whose ass to kick.
Count 3 Verdict: Not Guilty.
Count 4: Observation of the Sabbath
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. (Exodus 20: 8-11)
Obama has been conspicuously missing from the pews during his presidency. It’s not like we don’t know where to find him. He’s on the golf course. He’s attending fund-raisers. He’s imbibing the fruit of the vine. He’s eating arugula and buying shrimp while Michelle advises the rest of us to eat cake.
Jury deliberations take less than one minute on this count.
Count 4 Verdict: Guilty
Count 5: Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. (Exodus 20: 12)
Okay, we all agree that he wrote a book titled “Dreams of my Father.” That is beside the point. The question is whether Obama honors his father and mother. In Obama’s own words:
- “From Dreams of My Father: “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”
- From Dreams of My Father: “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.”
- From Dreams of My Father: “I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, Dubois and Mandela.”
Notice that even in the quote wherein he specifically mentions his father that Obama doesn’t ascribe specific positive human virtues to his progenitor. Rather, he merely mentions the man’s race. The quotes regarding his mother speak for themselves.
Count 5 Verdict: Guilty.
Count 6: Thou shalt not kill. (Exodus 20: 13)
This one always sticks in the craw of the progressives. So in tune with the rights of the mother are they, that they totally ignore the rights of the child. There is no way around it – abortion kills the child. So, what is Obama’s stated view on abortion. Why, he favors it, of course.
The Politico unearthed the first evidence of Obama’s stand on abortion in a story published on August 22, 2008 titled “Obama’s lost law review article”. Beginning on page 823 of Volume 103 of the Harvard Law Review, Obama argues that fetuses do not have the right to sue their mothers for negligence. In fact, he argued that allowing fetuses the right to sue would violate the rights of the mother.
In 1997, as a member of the Illinois State Senate, Obama voted against SB 230, which was a bill designed to prevent partial-birth abortions. Obama, as a U.S. Senator, consistently voted in favor of bills that would expand embryonic stem cell research. In fact, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) gave Obama a 100% score for his pro-abortion voting record from 2005-2007. Furthermore, Obama has refused to support any legislation that would define infants who survive late-term induced-labor abortions as human beings with the right to live.
Obama has not killed anyone, but he certainly is an accessory to the crime.
Count 6 Verdict: Guilty
Count 7: Thou shalt not commit adultery. (Exodus 20: 14)
Can anyone say “Vera Baker?” The National Enquirer claims to have uncovered security camera evidence that Obama and Baker were having an affair. But the evidence has proven to be inconclusive. Of course, if we ignore the evidence and merely judge Obama according to the seriousness of the charges (now where have we heard that phrase before?) he would be adjudicated to be guilty as charged. However, we’re not liberals here and we adhere to a higher judicial standard. Therefore, we cannot convict Obama on this count.
Count 7 Verdict: Hung Jury. Prosecution has the option of a retrial.
Count 8: Thou shalt not steal. (Exodus 20: 15)
Margaret Thatcher said it best: “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” True, but how has Obama managed to get his hands on other people’s money in the first place? Simple, he steals it through excessive taxation. The evidence: Obama is calling for allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire – in the middle of a recession no less! Obama proposes limiting the ability of taxpayers to itemize deductions, which…drum roll please… will have the effect of collecting an additional $291 billion in taxes over 10 years. Obama‘s position on the Estate Tax would increase the deficit by an additional $262 billion over 10 years – in other words, assessing more taxes. Obama also wants to raise taxes on investment fund manager profits. He also wants to permanently expand a low-income tax credit, expand the child-care tax credit, and permanently extend the American Opportunity Tax Credit – which sounds nice until you realize he can only fund those programs by stealing the money from higher-income taxpayers.
Count 8 Verdict: Guilty.
Count 9: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. (Exodus 20: 16)
For those unfamiliar, Collosians 3:9 makes it clear, “Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;”
What more can you say about a guy whose lies are listed on the internet? And we are not just talking about a single site:
The preponderance of the evidence is devastating to Obama. The websites listed are not the only ones. I didn’t list more because I simply got tired of copying and pasting them into this article.
Count 9 Verdict: Guilty
Count 10: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. (Exodus 20: 17)
Obama covets all personal property. His entire socialist agenda of the redistribution of wealth depends on it. For example, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) told CBSNews.com on March 31, 2010 that Obama will achieve his objective of redistribution of wealth through the new health care law, which requires all Americans to purchase health insurance or face a financial penalty.
Obama fancies himself a latter-day Robin Hood, taking from the rich and giving to the poor. What he can’t seem to fathom is that by making the rich poor, he eliminates the ability of the rich to employ the poor – thereby making the poor utterly destitute. But I digress. Of course he understands that principle. His remedy is simply to create a welfare state and force the poor into perpetual dependence on the government for their daily bread. But, having stolen from the rich, there’s nothing left to take, and the entire Ponzi scheme falls flat on its face – hence Thatcher’s quote.
The Obamas don’t restrict themselves merely to theft through taxes. They also steal through living high-on-the-hog on the taxpayers’ dime. Ergo, lavish trips to Spain, Martha’s Vineyard, Panama City, etc., etc., etc… This constitutes theft by conversion.
Count 10 – Verdict: Guilty.
Now we are left to count up the verdicts. The score is eight convictions, one hung jury, and one determination of Not Guilty. What have you got to say for yourself, Obama? It seems the only evidence that you might indeed be a Christian is the fact that there is no public evidence that you have cursed God. That’s not to say you don’t curse God – you just haven’t been publicly caught in the act.
In this court proceeding, a verdict of guilty is actually a verdict that there exists no evidence that Obama is a Christian.
Therefore, Mister Obama, by the authority granted to me by virtue of having presided over your trial, I hereby declare you innocent of the charge of being a Christian. There simply isn’t enough evidence to convict you. However, the Old Testament still has something to say about you and those like you, Mister Obama. In Isaiah 32: 5, 8 we read “The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful…but the liberal deviseth liberal things; andby liberal things shall he stand.” In other words, Mister Obama, from henceforth ye shall be known for what you really are, a vile person.
There’s nothing to see here, folks – move along.
Court is adjourned.
