The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole.

Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right.

Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.

Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else.

 — President Theodore Roosevelt in the Kansas City Star, May 7, 1918

Obama chinAdding fuel to the fire in the US are questions and lawsuits about Obama‘s legitimacy as President, the latest being the State of New Hampshire investigating whether his name should have been on the 2008 ballot.  For more information on this and the state of the US today, please take four minutes to watch this compelling interview with the eloquent Alan Keyes, a lawyer, one-time Obama political opponent, devout Catholic and pro-life supporter. 

And, last week, a controversy erupted over ACORN employees giving advice about tax credits and housing underage girls from El Salvador working as prostitutes; this week, the organisation has apparently been relieved of their responsibility for taking the 2010 US census.  You can read more about the ACORN sting operation at Freedom’s Lighthouse, which also features a short news interview with one of the undercover reporters and another ACORN film about setting up a brothel in Brooklyn.  You will be amazed to find out how much the helpful ACORN ladies know about setting up prostitution rings! Click here to watch another short undercover film made at the ACORN office in San Bernardino, CA. And, if you’re an American, you’re financing this outfit!  Yet, American taxpayers have no choice but to fund this corrupt organisation, and they have been doing so with in excess of $16 million since 1997.  Why not visit the ACORN Housing site — be sure to check out the top banner. 

Fortunately, a Senate measure brought forward by Republicans is underway whereby ACORN Housing could be deprived of Housing and Urban Development grants.  This measure is scheduled to be passed this week. Before it becomes law, it must be reconciled with a companion House of Representatives measure that passed in July.  But, ACORN is a large group — housing is just a part of it.  And, they are getting a new name, supposedly: Community Organizations International.  Watch for it.

As for child prostitution and trafficking, it is a serious problem in the US, just ignored or covered up.  Here’s what action is being taken in Wichita, KS, as reported by KAKE-TV:

Wichita law enforcement and Via Christi Health Care workers unite through Healthcare Haven, a program designed to help victimized youth.

Within 48 hours of running away from home, statistics show one in three youth are lured into prostitution. Statistics also show the average age of entry into prostitution is 12. The statistics are startling, yet they apply to Wichita. 

‘In the Midwest, this is a big problem,’ said Kathy Gill-Hopple, Director of Healthcare Haven. ‘This is the third most profitable crime behind drug trafficking and arms trafficking.’

Then, as many have long suspected from Obama’s books, word emerges that he has extensive Marxist connections.  A New Zealand researcher, Trevor Loudon, who some say was instrumental in bringing about Van Jones’s recent resignation, expounded on the President’s past for The Post & Email (excerpts follow with subheads from me):

Loudon’s experience:

I have been researching communism since the 80s-when our own Moscow aligned Marxists turned New Zealand anti-nuclear and destroyed the ANZUS Alliance.

My special interest is the ability of the far left to infiltrate and manipulate ‘moderate’ political parties and institutions to influence public opinion and alter government policies.

I began studying the US communist movement after observing the strength of the Anti-Iraq war movement…

Communism and Chicago:

While hugely reduced in size the US communists and their allies in Democratic Socialists of America, Committees of Correspondence and the wider ‘progressive’ movement  have huge influence on the more than 70 strong Congressional Progressive Caucus, the AFL-CIO and several  large black and Latino organizations…

Vernon Jarrett was a prominent Chicago journalist who used his columns to promote Barack Obama during his 2004 Senate run (Jarrett died soon after).

In the later 40s Jarrett worked in at least three communist influenced or controlled organizations in common with Frank Marshall Davis — the two worked together on the publicity committee of a communist controlled Packing House Workers strike support committee in 1948…

The Jarretts were family friends with the Bowman family and Valerie Bowman became Valerie Jarrett through a five year marriage to Vernon Jarrett’s now deceased son.

Valerie’s mother Barbara Taylor Bowman runs the Erikson Institute in Chicago. Tom Ayers, father of  Weather Underground terrorist leader and Obama associate Bill Ayers served on the Erikson board as did Bill Ayers’ wife Bernardine Dohrn. Bill Ayers claims to be a friend  and Hyde park neighbor of Barbara Bowman, who incidentally is an adviser on early childhood education to the Secretary of Education.

Valerie Jarrett hired Michelle Obama for a Chicago City job in the 90s and became a close friend and advisor to both Michelle and Barack, leading to her current job in the White House.

Communism in Hawaii:

Frank Marshall Davis [Obama’s mentor] was a prominent Chicago journalist and poet in 1940s Chicago…

Davis left Chicago for Hawaii in 1948, where he worked on the Honolulu Record, a paper controlled by the  communist ‘owned’ International Longshoremen’s Worker Union.

Davis was an active, but still covert Party member in Hawaii and went underground with the Party in the mid 50s-after a Senate Inquiry  into communist activities on the islands…

Davis was marked by the FBI for immediate arrest in the event of war with the Soviet Union.

Like many of his comrades Davis was an official in the Hawaii Democratic Party.

In 1970 Davis was introduced to a 10 year old Barack Obama, by Obama’s grandfather-who was Davis’ friend and drinking buddy.

Obama’s associations as an adult:

It is important to note that Obama attended ‘socialist conferences’ at the Cooper Union while in New York.

Cooper Union was the usual venue of the annual Socialist Scholars Conference which was organized by Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) — the US’s largest socialist/Marxist grouping…

DSA endorsed Obama in his 1995 Illinois State senate run.

Obama joined the Chicago New Party at that time. The New Party was a coalition of ACORN, DSA, Committees of Correspondence and SEIU activists

Obama worked closely with several DSA members in Chicago, a well as with come cadre from Committees of Correspondence — a Communist Party splinter group.

Several of Obama’s close friends, neighbors and colleagues were involved with DSA …

Obama’s main documented links to the Chicago left were through DSA, Committees of Correspondence and the New Party.

Prominent CoC leader Manning Marable wrote in Britain’s Socialist Review of November 2008:

What makes Obama different is that he has also been a community organizer. He has read left literature, including my works, and he understands what socialism is. A lot of the people working with him are, indeed, socialists with backgrounds in the Communist Party or as independent Marxists. There are a lot of people like that in Chicago who have worked with him for years…

That said, both the Chicago Communist Party and Young Communist League campaigned for Obama in his 2004 Senate race and both organizations overtly campaigned for Obama in 2008

You can read the rest here.  Loudon explains the political ties some of Obama’s advisors and cabinet members have — breathtaking.

So, what sort of judgment are England and the US getting?  Of course, as Donald Rumsfeld famously once said, ‘We don’t know what we don’t know’. Holly Dye at The Cross Is All has a post entitled ‘Judgment or Revival’. It should be noted that her post may or may not tie in with what has been stated above — it may be a social comment rather than a political one. She says:

A few months ago, while in prayer, I kept hearing the words, ‘It’s coming’. I began to sense something coming upon this country. The only way I know how to describe it is to say it was like two different waves coming at the exact same time. One wave was terrible, horrifying judgment and the other was immense revival. They were of the same intensity.

I believe we can choose which wave will come upon us. Will it be judgment or revival?

It’s so hard to say.  I believe that God is giving both countries a taste of horrible socio-political situations that could come our way in triplicate if we refuse to turn unto Him.    

Back to Holly, who quotes R T Kendall’s article, ‘Judgment at the House of God’, which discusses five different possibilities of judgment, paraphrased below:

Retributive: no mercy — think Sodom and Gomorrah

Gracious: having mercy, intended to be a warning yet give hope — as in Jonah’s repentence after being swallowed by the whale

Redemptive: retribution with a promise — God’s punishment of the Israelites with poisonous snakes, followed by life for those who looked on the bronze snake He ordered Moses to make  

Natural: what you sow you shall reap — karma, in other words

Silent: a long period of God’s angry silence — He sees and does nothing.

Holly ends her post with several signs of revival, which we may see, if we are lucky.  But it depends on us and those around us. 

The first and fifth judgments described seem to be the worst.  What could happen?  Food shortages, less freedom, manufactured panic and government control.  The possibilities are endless.  Here’s just one recent example, which is about Oklahoma and the H1N1 vaccine as featured in a short YouTube film.  It explains some things you will want to know if you live in the state.  Here’s a related story, this time about the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Even if you don’t live in either of these states, you should be aware of what these items say about the direction America is headed today. 

If you don’t believe me, why not watch legendary comedian Jackie Mason explain it here?   He says if Americans accept dishonesty from their politicians, then their country really is becoming a ‘most immoral nation’.   Mason says that if you don’t accept dishonesty from your family or friends, why do you tolerate it from your President? 

The scariest part is that many people don’t even see what’s happening around them.  Many say, ‘Who cares?’ or ‘Go along to get along’. Whilst these sound like harmless responses, their apathy carries the potential for dangerous, unexpected outcomes.   

So, let’s do what we can through prayer, fellowship and a good example to bring others to Christ so they turn from apathy and ignorance to truth and light.   

And if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned— Jeremiah 18:8 (NIV)
