I have written previously on the theme that Barack Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetero, might be insane. It is a worthy topic, and deserves more play in journalistic circles than it is receiving. But after yesterday’s astonishing performance by Obama during a radio interview on Univision, there is another possibility that must also be explored. The question? – Is Obama evil? That’s right, the big “E”. It isn’t an either/or situation. There is nothing preventing Obama from being both insane and evil. But let’s concentrate on the evil meme here. Like the insanity question, Obama’s state of morality deserves equal attention.
Returning to Obama’s radio performance, here’s the most relevant quotes:
“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.” – Barack Obama
And as if that isn’t enough, here is a follow-up, in which Obama gives his opinion about Republicans such as Senator John McCain who support effective border security and strong immigration law enforcement.
“Those aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” – Barack Obama
We are witnessing a President of the United States literally declaring war on some of its citizens! Obama has just declared that Republicans are his enemy. He is inciting violence towards conservatives. He is demanding that Latinos be his enforcers against his sworn “enemies.” Obama, in essence is openly advocating racial warfare in The United States of America. He is making racist statements, imploring the Latinos to rise up and punish his “enemies”. That’s just great – a Nobel Peace Prize winner stumping for the punishment of his “enemies”. The man, who ran as a post-partisan uniter, has become the most divisive president in the history of this country.
Furthermore, Obama draws the lines of division quite clearly for us. Those American citizens who do not support his policies “aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.” And just what ARE your core American values, Mister President? Would you care to elaborate?
Let’s take a guess. Obama’s core values constitute the following:
- Destroy America’s ability to defend itself
- Bankrupt America
- Enrich himself and his cronies
- Tear down border defenses and allow unbridled trespassing upon United States soil
- Control the actions of American citizens via the rationing and withholding of medical care
- Impose complete governmental control over the manufacturing sector of the economy
- Impose complete governmental control over the financial industry
- Impose complete governmental control over the press, wiping out Fox News and any other news organization that dares to broadcast or print opinions that oppose Obama’s agenda
- Declare war upon American patriots
- Indoctrinate children in Marxism
- Apologize to the world for any and all instances of American exceptionalism
- Destroy all carbon-based energy production companies
- Impose control over every aspect of citizens’ lives
- Incite class warfare
- Incite racial warfare
- Impose redistribution of wealth on a massive scale
- Remove God from the lives of all Americans and replace the worship of God with the worship of the state and Obama
- Create a system of central command and control over the economy through appointed Czars, bypassing the authority of the United States Congress
- Make the courts of the land subservient to the will of Obama. Appoint stooges as judges so that all court decisions will follow communist doctrine
- Dictate what types of food people may eat
- Force students to obtain their school funding through the government by eliminating the right of private financial institutions to offer student loans
- Make illegal the selling of incandescent lightbulbs
- Destroy the private sector of the economy – all jobs must come via government
- Mandate the killing of unborn babies through taxpayer funded abortions
- Make Americans slaves to communism
Furthermore, Obama then lies about each and every policy position – Then acts like a buffoon, grins, and denies that he is a socialist. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are living through the most dangerous period of American history. There is a would-be dictator attempting to forcibly impose his will upon us.
This is no longer a fight between conservatism and liberalism. This is a fight between good and evil. Obama even attempts to redefine what is good and what is evil. You’re right, Obama, we don’t share your values. No righteous person ever would. Even the Bible, (you remember the Bible, don’t you, Mister self-professed Christian?) foretold the day of Obama:
It is a small step from Obama’s current rhetoric to genocide. Hitler did it just like Obama is leading up to it now. Obama is now calling for the destruction of his enemies – and he wants the Latinos to do it. Hitler called for the destruction of the Jews – and he wanted the S.S. to do it. We have arrived at a time in our nation’s history when a violent gang has infiltrated our government, our schools and universities, our think-tanks, our law enforcement agencies, our workplaces, our military, and every other aspect of our society. And Obama is leading the charge.
The Jews have a word for what Obama is now alluding to. The word is Pogrom. Look it up. Study it. You will find it instructive. Pogroms, essentially, are the systematic cleansings of populations, with the atrocities aimed at selected groups of people. It is selective genocide. The Jews in Russia suffered pogroms. The Jews in Europe suffered another pogrom at the hands of the Nazis. The Armenians were victims of a pogrom as well. The Holocaust was one giant pogrom. And now Obama is alluding to exactly that – a pogrom.
Obama’s rhetoric has become ever more inflammatory the closer we have come to November 2, 2010. He feels his power slipping away and he is striking out like a petulant child who has been denied the biggest cookie on the plate. What was a slick, controlled, and contrived message during Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, has descended into gutter talk of retribution against his political “enemies.” Obama isn’t talking about the issues anymore. Obama is talking about eliminating his “enemies.”
Ezra Taft Benson, who served as Secretary of Agriculture in the Eisenhower administration, warned us of the dangers of the secret combination that had infiltrated our society. Benson was mocked and scorned for his words. He was considered a lunatic by many of his critics. But, considering the unfettered dismantling of our freedoms and the destruction of our society by the Democrats during the past two years, more and more people are seeing the Democrats in general and Obama in particular for exactly what they are – a communist gang.
Here is Benson’s warning, published in November, 1979. See the complete talk here. And here are some excerpts, below:
It is well to ask, what system established secret works of darkness to overthrow nations by violent revolution? Who blasphemously proclaimed the atheistic doctrine that God made us not? Satan works through human agents. We need only look to some of the ignoble characters in human history who were contemporary to the restoration of the gospel to discover fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy. I refer to the infamous founders of Communism and others who follow in their tradition.
Communism introduced into the world a substitute for true religion. It is a counterfeit of the gospel plan. The false prophets of Communism predict a utopian society. This, they proclaim, will only be brought about as capitalism and free enterprise are overthrown, private property abolished, the family as a social unit eliminated, all classes abolished, all governments overthrown, and a communal ownership of property in a classless, stateless society established. – Ezra Taft Benson
Having established that Communism in all its forms, and under all the code names it goes by, which we now see include progressive, liberal, Democrat, socialist, and environmentalist, etc., Benson declared that the prophets of communism were among us, promising Utopia in exchange for our freedom. Is this not what we see permeating our society now? Have the communists in America not created a welfare state? Does not Obama seek to expand it?
Next, Benson goes on to explain the nature of the battle.
Today, we are in a battle for the bodies and souls of man. It is a battle between two opposing systems: freedom and slavery, Christ and anti-Christ. The struggle is more momentous than a decade ago, yet today the conventional wisdom says, “You must learn to live with Communism and to give up your ideas about national sovereignty.” Tell that to the millions—yes, the scores of millions—who have met death or imprisonment under the tyranny of Communism! Such would be the death knell of freedom and all we hold dear. God must ever have a free people to prosper His work and bring about Zion.
I am a witness to nations and people deprived of their freedom. I was there. I watched that great Iron Curtain drop around nations which formerly had prized their freedom—good people. I was aghast as these were written off by the stroke of a pen. I saw Poland abandoned by nations with a heritage of freedom—the United States and Great Britain.
I was in Warsaw in June of 1946. I shared a room with seven other men in the Polonia Hotel, the only hotel even partially intact in the great city of Warsaw. Our ambassador, Bliss Lane, had his office in part of the building. He was so saddened that he resigned and wrote the book I Saw Poland Betrayed, which detailed the failure of the United States and England to keep their promise that the Poles would have a free election after the war.
I saw firsthand our great nation stand by at the time of the Hungarian revolution—when “freedom fighters” with bare hands and stones resisted bullets, tanks, and artillery. I confess I was ashamed at the response of my country—a nation which I believe the Lord intended to be an ensign of freedom to all others. Freedom did not die that day (23 October 1956) for Hungary alone. Hope died for many in other captive nations and has only recently been somewhat revived by courageous men willing to speak against oppression.
Since that day, I have seen the Soviet Union, under its godless leaders, spread its ideology throughout the world. Every stratagem is used—trade, war, revolution, violence, hate, detente, and immorality—to accomplish its purposes. Many nations are now under its oppressive control. Over one billion people—one-fourth of the population of the world—have now lost their freedom and are under Communist domination. We seem to forget that the great objective of Communism is still world domination and control, which means the surrender of our freedom—your freedom—our sovereignty. – Ezra Taft Benson
Benson, a high-ranking leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, included in his article the mention of a warning the First Presidency (the highest ranking level of leadership in his church) issued all the way back in July of 1936 regarding the goals of communism.
“Communism is not a political party nor a political plan under the Constitution; it is a system of government that is the opposite of our Constitutional government. …
“Since Communism, established, would destroy our American Constitutional government, to support Communism is treasonable to our free institutions, and no patriotic American citizen may become either a Communist or supporter of Communism. …
“We call upon all Church members completely to eschew [shun] Communism. The safety of our divinely inspired Constitutional government and the welfare of our Church imperatively demand that Communism shall have no place in America” (signed: Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark, Jr., David O. McKay, The First Presidency, in Deseret News, 3 July 1936; italics added).
Benson, and his contemporaries recognized that the greatest danger of communism to America was that we, as Americans, had accommodated the infiltration of communists into our society. Americans have keenly noticed that Obama doesn’t seem to have a religion. Yes, he calls himself a Christian – but his rhetoric is decidedly unchristian. The only religion Obama truly seems to have is the worship of Obama. He is following precisely the communist model – he has replaced the worship of God with the worship of the state. And as head of the state, that means he worships himself. Another religious leader, Marion G. Romney, pointed out this fact in September of 1979:
“Communism is Satan’s counterfeit for the gospel plan, and … it is an avowed enemy of the God of the land. Communism is the greatest anti-Christ power in the world today and therefore the greatest menace not only to our peace but to our preservation as a free people. By the extent to which we tolerate it, accommodate ourselves to it, permit ourselves to be encircled by its tentacles and drawn to it, to that extent we forfeit the protection of the God of this land” – Marion G. Romney
Both Benson and Romney argued that the way for Americans to protect themselves from communism was to return to worshipping God with full fervor. Additionally, Benson laid out some other actions that could be taken:
We must not tolerate accommodation with or appeasement toward the false system of Communism. We must demand of our elected officials that we not only resist Communism, but that we will take every measure to prevent its intrusion into this hemisphere. It is vital that we invoke the Monroe Doctrine. – Ezra Taft Benson
We must study the inspired Constitution and become involved in the political process ourselves. – Ezra Taft Benson
I do not care if the political left declares me, like Ezra Taft Benson, to be a nut. I do not shrink from calling Obama a communist, for that is what he is. I refuse to stand idly by while Obama attempts to destroy my beloved America. America is the great bastion of freedom and liberty in a perilous world. If we give up America we lose the world. Obama knows that. That is why he and his fellow communists are so intent on taking complete and utter control over us. They know that if they conquer America then will control the world.
Now let me share something with you that you made find surprising. Our first president, George Washington, saw in vision, this day and age. He saw the threat that would come from our domestic enemies, such as Obama. He understood, through divine revelation, the war we must fight to retain our precious liberty from those, such as Obama, who would deprive us of our liberties.
Our nation was founded by spiritually-minded leaders, including Washington. At Valley Forge, in the winter of 1777, Washington received this vision of the future of The United States of America. This vision was reprinted in December of 1880 by The National Tribune, the U.S. war veterans’ newspaper. This vision was also reprinted on December 21, 1950 by The Stars and Stripes.
Anthony Sherman was in Valley Forge and received the report of the vision first hand from George Washington. Sherman recalled: “You doubtless heard the story of Washington’s going to the thicket to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation.”
“One day, I remember it well, when the chilly winds whistled through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shown brightly, he remained in his quarters nearly all the afternoon alone. When he came out, I noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual. There seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance. Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters who was presently in attendance. After a preliminary conversation of about an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone commanded, related the event that occurred that day.”
“This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.
“By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralyzed.
“A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor. Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.
The First Peril – The Revolution
“Presently I heard a voice saying, ‘Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly, I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a stranger scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world – Europe, Asia, Africa and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.
“‘Son of the Republic,’ said the same mysterious voice as before, `look and learn.’ At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.
The Second Perl – The Civil War
“A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows in sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn,’ I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.
“Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, `Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.’ At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill omened specter approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word `Union,’ bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, `Remember ye are brethren.’ Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.
The Third Peril – America’s Judgment?
“And again I heard the mysterious voice saying `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.
“Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America. At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits. These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were will nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.
“Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, `Son of the Republic, look and learn.’ As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious!
“Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: `While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.’ And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word `Union,’ he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, `Amen.’
“The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld. This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, `Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted: Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third, but in this greatest conflict the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and the Union’. With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.
Do not doubt for an instant that we are in the midst of a literal war with evil. Obama is currently leading the charge against us. Undoubtedly, there are others in the shadows, who guide him in this war against liberty, but we will likely never know much about them. That isn’t important now. What is important is that we, as a nation, take a stand against the evil arrayed against us. I have hope that America has finally woken up. The emergence of the Tea Party is evidence of that fact. The polls forecasting a conservative victory on November 2, 2010 are evidence to the power of this resurgence of conservatism and God-loving peoples of all faiths. The midterm elections are just one more battle in the fight against evil. The midterms will represent an important victory in the war against evil – but it will not end that war.
Remain vigilant, America. Go to the polls in immense numbers and reclaim your freedom. Know that our day and our battles were prophesied by President George Washington, by Ezra Taft Benson, by Rush Limbaugh, by Sean Hannity, by Jim DeMint, and by countless others who perceive liberals, progressives, socialists, Democrats, and environmentalists for what they really are – communists.
The war is against communism. It always has been. It always will be. Obama is merely the latest leader of those who would enslave us. Rise up, America and take back that which has been stolen from you. The stakes are high. The dangers are even higher. But we will emerge triumphant, as George Washington saw in vision. America will survive. We will win this war against tyranny.
Get out and vote. Let nothing stop you from this sacred duty. We fight out battles at the ballot box. We fight our battles in the hearts and minds of men and women everywhere. We are not violent. Like Ghandi preached, we fight a bloodless war. The communists will bring bloodshed to this battle but we will not reciprocate. The highest of all victories are won peaceably.
