Hat Tip: The Radio Patriot
Speaks volumes… speaks for itself and the facts… Look at Obama’s actions and his words and then decide. I have.

Quotes By Barack Obama About Islam and Mohammed
#1 “The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
#2 “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”
#3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

#8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
#9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”
#10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”
#11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”
#12 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”
#13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”
#14 “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance andracial equality.”

#20 “I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”
20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity and the Bible
#1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”
#2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”
#3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”
#4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”
#5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”
#6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”
#7 Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”
#8 “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”
#9 “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”
#10 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell. I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity. That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”
#11 “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”
#12 “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”
#13 “Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”
#14 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”
#15 “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
#16 “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”
#17 “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”
#18 “We have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”
#19 “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra — (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer. (Applause.)”
#20 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”
‘Why I’m Considering Quitting,’ Ann Barnhardt
Even the most dynamic of us feels it. We get to where we all feel it. The more we learn how wrong things really are… and the more we see how obdurately unknowledgeable-to-quasiknowledgeable, and placated even patriotic Americans on the whole are arrayed, the more we grieve. God save us. With your indulgence though, after her confession, I’ll place one further comment. — AW
This is getting to feel more and more each day like trying to run while submerged in liquid cement. Why bother? If people are incapable on what must be a spiritual level of processing the most obvious, simple things; if all of the explanations, if all of the writing and speaking is the equivalent of trying to teach linear algebra to a clump of wet lint, why bother?
Obama used the known deserter/traitor/musloid convert Bergdahl for the release of the top five most valuable Gitmo detainees because the entire former American government, now fronted by the imbecile-puppet Obama, along with the Clinton machine, and a massive contingent of bureaucrat operatives loyal to the megabanks saturating all three branches and the military, has been overthrown and is explicitly allied with islam. Obama, Clinton, the FBI, the CIA, the Pentagon and on and on has been completely infiltrated by the Musloid Brotherhood, and those not in the MB per se are allied with it because it is a highly complementary political system with a litany of shared goals and objectives, namely the establishment of a tyrannical oligarchy looting and dominating by terror a massive, destitute underclass. Obama IS Musloid Brotherhood, for all intents and purposes. They own him and have since his earliest days. No, he doesn’t believe in the faux-religious aspects of the musloid political system, because almost none of the musloids above the very lowest caste do. It’s a TOTALITARIAN POLITICAL SYSTEM, not a religion. Hillary Clinton is up to her neck in Musloid Brotherhood. Good grief, her right hand “man” and likely lesbian concubine, Huma Abedin, is the daughter of TWO of the highest-ranking Musloid Brotherhood leaders on the planet. The CIA is headed by a “convert” to islam, John Brennan.
When I read commentator after commentator breathlessly asking, “Why would they do this? It looks so bad!” I just shake my head. They did it because THEY ARE THE ENEMY. They’re not Americans. America is dead. It’s their state now, and they will do what they want, when they want, and what you think about it or what the Constitution or the old U.S. Code says is utterly, totally, completely irrelevant.
They don’t care that it looks bad because the overthrow of the constitutional republic is a fait accompli and has been for YEARS. What the hell are you going to do about it? Nothing. Oh, you’ve made that PERFECTLY clear. These people have been committing CAPITAL OFFENSES according to the old U.S. Code on a daily basis for YEARS and NO ONE GIVES A SHIT. No one will do anything except cluck their tongues and shake their heads. Every day you can find some new piece commenting on all of this which uses the word “outrage”. What are you talking about, “I’m outraged”? No you aren’t. If you were outraged you would have done something, and you would have done it a long time ago. And no, signing some bullshit “petition” online is NOT DOING SOMETHING. Spamming people with emails saying, “Oh my gosh, this is outrageous!” is NOT DOING SOMETHING. Making up a damn Twitter hashtag is NOT DOING SOMETHING. Showing up to a “march” where people go for a leisurely walk in a circle with their friends, and then have a cook-out or picnic, and then everyone’s home in time for Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead IS NOT DOING SOMETHING. “Liking” a post on Facebook is NOT DOING SOMETHING.
Catching shameless, conscienceless, murderous psychopaths who now control the largest economy and largest military in human history in a lie or in blatant hypocrisy is not going to cause them to hang their heads in shame and slink off into shameful obscurity. Elections? How stupid do you have to be to still persist in the delusion that A.) elections are fairly contested and B.) this can be solved by rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, which isn’t sinking, it’s ALREADY SUNK AND SITTING ON THE OCEAN FLOOR 2.5 MILES DOWN?
There is only one way these people will ever, ever, ever be stopped. They must be forcefully, physically removed. This means war. This means hot counter-revolution. This means people are going to die on all sides. They will commit atrocities, because they are in the most literal sense, atrocious human beings. The definition of “atrocious” is “horrifyingly wicked”. They will burn everything to the ground and salt the earth before they release their grasp on the money and the power over human life that they have, and continue to gather to themselves in an insatiable lust with each passing day.
And each day there is a new crime, and the frequency of the crimes themselves is the means by which they keep you distracted and wallowing in what I can only describe as a masturbatory impotence driven by a false fantasy of your own “outrage”. Your “outrage” is no more real than the pornographic fantasies people use to masturbate sexually. And every 36 hours – like clockwork – you are handed a new vector for your “outrage” fetish, and the previous one, no longer capable of sustaining the proverbial erection, is forgotten as quickly as it was introduced. Because THIS ONE, this new “outrage”, this is going to be THE ONE, this is going to be the “outrage orgasm” to end all outrage orgasms, and they’re all going to resign, and then it’s going to be “Morning in America” and it’s going to feel just like it did when we were kids forever.
Why don’t I write more? Why don’t I comment extensively on these daily crimes? Why don’t I record podcasts? Because I don’t want to be a Hefner or Guccione or Flynt of this “outrage porn”, feeding this false facade of “oh my gosh, we’re totally doing something” when in fact, you are growing ever more flaccid and ever more supine with each passing day, lost in the fantasy of your own potency.
I dunno. I just don’t know what more to do. I guess all I can do. Pray, and maybe spread a little Gospel. I dunno.
Whatever happens, Americans need to relearn America — what it really means. And we will need to have new and effective ways to keep our politicians under our control — the same with monetary and financial systems and personnel, the same with intelligence, military, legal, public education, and anything our government touches. Here is what I’m inviting you to join, to functionally begin doing just that — whatever happens — God save us. (AW)
D-Day as it Happened Seventy Years Ago, Today
By: Arlen Williams
Looking into a few key items about D-Day, seventy years ago today, I thought it would be good to tie a few together, here.
Today, we are in a much more quietized war, but a war in our own land, for the very survival of our nation. How many even know?
