Obama’s Path of Destruction


Disclaimer:
Stilltruth is a blog about bible study, but it’s also my blog. So I’ll publish articles like this on occasion but they’ll stay on the inside not on the front page.

Past

Breaking the sixth commandment is a hallmark not only of his past politics but also his determined future should he obtain office.
Obama’s murderous rampage is fueled not by illegal activity like mugging liquor stores and shooting the owner but by pursuing abortion at any means possible. Mona Charen fashions a powerful case in a recent article, I defer to her article which I will shorten in true sound bite fashion as much as possible:

“When Congress was considering the Born Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA), a subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee heard testimony from Jill Stanek and Allison Baker, two nurses at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Ill. They described several instances in which babies who were moving and breathing after induced abortions were left to die.
The BAIPA was designed to ensure that in those rare cases in which a baby marked for abortion happens to survive — that the child will be immediately accorded full human and constitutional rights. The measure passed the U.S. House by a vote 380 to 15 but was blocked in the Senate. When a “neutrality clause” was inserted to the effect that the law should not be construed to limit the scope of Roe v. Wade, the measure was passed by unanimous consent and signed into law in 2002.
At the time, Barack Obama was an Illinois state senator. An almost exact copy of the federal bill was introduced in 2001. Obama opposed it, saying, “I mean it, it would essentially bar abortions because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute.” Even though the baby would be completely separated from the mother. In 2003, the Illinois legislature added a neutrality clause to the bill, making it a virtual clone of the federal legislation. As chairman of the committee considering the bill, Obama again opposed it, saying, “… an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman …” … there is no other way to interpret his position on BAIPA than this: A woman who chooses an abortion is entitled to a dead child no matter what. That is an abortion extremist.”
RealClearPolitics – Articles – Abortions Do Sometimes Produce Live Births

I think it’s safe to say that you could define Barack Obama as Rabidly Pro Abortion.
Life begins at conception and Obama’s dogged determination to see that every life possible is entirely snuffed out equates to conspiracy to commit murder at the tune of multiplied thousands of counts a year.

Present

When Russia decided to invade Georgia, Barack’s response was to immediately urge Russia and Georgia to play nice (show restraint) with each other. What? This is like urging a beating victim to just lay there quietly and not fight back against the bully – oh wait that is the typical but foolish advice given to kids on the playground these days isn’t it?

Well not me. I’ll be honest, Yes Jesus told us to turn the other cheek but the context for that statement is in relation to being persecuted for our faith, not being picked on by a bully. If we’re being persecuted because that guys is big and has a poor self image which he hopes to boost by beating you I say lay hands on him and pray for him later.

I once worked with a fellow who before coming to faith in Christ was a bit rough around the edges. When he accepted Christ and purposed to live for the Lord some of his friends were not very understanding. One of his former cronies repeatedly urged him to go partying and after a few staunch refusals he leaned back and slugged this new Christian.
Rocked back on his heals my friend replied, “Jesus told me to turn the other cheek” which he promptly did. Surprise he was struck again by his former friend. Whereupon my friend said, “Tommy I did my best to be obedient. I told him, Jesus told me to turn the other cheek and I’ve done it. He doesn’t tell me what to do next, so I’m going to beat the devil out of you.” And that is precisely what he did.

Judge that little story however you want but I’ve always found it amusing and at least partially instructive on a number of levels.

Coming back to topic, Obama didn’t have a clue what was going on in Georgia, he didn’t appear to know what or who Georgia was or the circumstances of Russia’s invasion – not to mention that Georgia looks positively toward the United States. And his call for mutual restraint was misplaced and ignorant.

Oh and don’t forget that the Iraq government is worried about the US being fickle and just running away like scared little rabbits if Obama takes office. Foreign relations under Obama: Destroyed.

Future

Once again I picked this off an article by Mona Charen regarding the impending destruction if Obama makes it to office:

“It is hard to think of any issue dear to the hearts of conservatives on which Barack Obama is not planted firmly on the other side — the power of diplomacy vis-a-vis aggressors, the proper care and feeding of teachers unions, the threat of terrorism, affirmative action, the importance of free trade, immigration reform — I could go on. If elected, President Obama, arm in arm with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, would be in a position to do serious damage to the country on a number of fronts. His convention speech removed any doubt that he is an orthodox, big — no, huge — government liberal.”

I suppose I could end this little thinking out loud session by adding one wish. I hope and wish that Obama will destroy his own candidacy. If he keeps on the path he’s on, he will.
