At an Iftar dinner in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama proclaimed that he supports the building of the Ground Zero mosque as part of his “unshakable commitment to religious freedom”. Which of course sounds very noble and good, until you ask a single question, Where is the religious freedom in the Muslim world?
Obama has made the case for Islam in America, on the grounds that America’s religious diversity promotes the religious freedom of all. Islam no less than any other belief system. Yet if introducing Islam into America promotes religious freedom, then why is there no religious freedom in the Muslim world? Why are churches firebombed in Malaysia because Christians presumed to use the word Allah? Why are non-Muslims forbidden to enter the city of Mecca, from which Jews and Christians were ethnically cleansed by Mohammed? Why are Coptic Christians being oppressed and humiliated by the Egyptian government? Why are Muslims murdering Buddhist teachers in Thailand? There are a thousand examples, all of which add up to a single conclusion—Muslims demand religious freedom, yet are not willing to give it to others.
Its Office of Inspector General released a reporting claiming no U.S. official made “any private or public statements … expressing either a positive or negative position on the abortion provision in the draft Kenyan constitution, nor did they attempt to influence any Kenyan’s opinion, either positively or negatively, on the abortion provision.”
This sounds like Clinton-era word-parsing. The fact is President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have both praised the new Kenyan constitution, which legalized abortion. Obama told the Kenyan Broadcasting Corporation the pro-abortion document represented a “singular opportunity to put the government of Kenya on a more solid footing.” On another occasion, Joe Biden told a Kenyan audience it would “deepen the roots of your democracy.” Ironically, he added the pro-abortion constitution would also “unleash the energy of the youth.”
Rep. Chris Smith, R-NJ, has detailed how the Obama administration spent at least $23 million funding organizations that supported the new constitution in Kenya. This could be an impeachable offense. Former prosecutor Andy McCarthy has written the advocacy was “borderline criminal (and that’s being generous).”
The State Department is circling the wagons. We thank Rep. Smith for his work so far and hope he will not fold in pursuing the truth.
On January 9, 2009, the Manchurian Candidate was elevated to President of the United States of America. At the same time, he assumed the office of Commander in Chief of all U.S. land, sea and air forces.
The man, whom hardly any American knew anything about, became the 44th President. For those of the liberal persuasion, it seemed that all that mattered was that Barack Hussein Obama II was black — or at least half-black. For liberals, this was the defining moment in America.
At last, liberal white guilt was assuaged. This was to be the post-racist America — a time of racial healing and the end of divisiveness. Here then was the new Camelot where an attractive, young, energetic president would take America forward into a golden age — or so they thought. How bitter the reality as America sinks into depression — emotionally, financially, politically and socially.
