Barack Obama is a counterfeit Alan Keyes

Plagiarizing the language of liberty and equality for socialism

"I don't need Mr. Keyes lecturing me on Christianity. That's why I have a pastor." — Barack Obama

In 2004, Ambassador Alan Keyes acceded to the persistent pleas of Illinois Republicans to represent them in the U.S. Senate race against Democrat Barack Obama, only after being informed of Obama's history of callous disregard for innocent human life in blocking the legal protection of babies who had survived abortion attempts in that state's hospitals.

Dr. Keyes, more than anyone in the country, saw the dangers posed by the rise of Barack Obama, and was willing to endure the obvious ambushes that were set for him in the race, even though he knew there was little prospect of electoral success, and that the personal costs would be considerable. He knew that if he did not pick up the standard and run to the sound of the guns, a pro-abortion woman was going to be chosen by the GOP, and Barack Obama's evil record would never be exposed, smoothing his path to power.

Like the Lincoln-Douglas debates of an earlier century, the Keyes-Obama confrontations were of historic value. It's hard to imagine two men more different in their character and philosophy. It's hard to imagine two more disparate worldviews. And, it's hard to imagine how Alan Keyes, a man with broad Reagan administration foreign policy and national defense experience, could have rhetorically thrashed the inexperienced Barack Obama any more thoroughly than he did.

But, as you know, with the help of an Obama-loving media and a Republican establishment that was more in tune with the Democrats than it was with the timeless American principles represented by Alan Keyes, Barack Obama won the election handily, just as Douglas defeated Lincoln so many years before. And, as expected, Obama's rise to power in the days since has been swift, financed and promoted by the most radical and powerful forces of socialism in America today, including George Soros.

In recent days we've observed the spectacle of presidential candidate Barack Obama fighting for political survival in the wake of the revelations of the racist America-hating "liberation theology" preached from the pulpit of his church of twenty years. Never mind that conservatives have known about and made known the nature of this institution for a long time, but that it only became "news" when friends of his primary opponent Hillary Clinton in the Democrat Media decided it was time to make an issue of it.

In a speech that was splashed across every network and the pages of every newspaper in the land, he employed every rhetorical tool and talent available to him to try and defuse the scandal. If you were foolish enough to believe some of the talking heads of television you'd think the man was Jesus delivering the Sermon on the Mount, or at a minimum Martin Luther King, Jr. preaching from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, instead of a politician trying to spin himself out of deep trouble.

In any case, Barack Obama is not Jesus or Reverend King. He's Joe Biden. You see, Barack Obama is cribbing from the founding documents of this republic, and the timeless statements of its actual statesmen, even though it's obvious that his political philosophy has nothing to do with the founding principles, and that his ideology would be completely foreign and hateful to those great Americans who came before.

He even borrows from the Bible, though like virtually all modern Democrats he twists the meaning of the eternal Word of God at his whim. He's learned his lessons from Bill Clinton well.

He speaks of "we the people," while completely misunderstanding who the men were that penned those words, and the words which followed.

He steals the constitutional theme of "a more perfect union," while ignoring in every facet of his political life the rest of the words of the Preamble, especially its closing statement of purpose: "To secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves AND OUR POSTERITY." His support for abortion-on-demand, and even infanticide, makes a mockery of the spirit and the letter of our Constitution, as well as the founding paragraph of our nation, found in the Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men..."

You see, he doesn't even understand why human government exists, much less how to unify all Americans in support of it.

He utters with his lips sweet-honeyed homage to "union," while tearing down with both hands all possibility of unity, just as Stephen Douglas and many of his contemporaries did. You see, without truth, without adherence to God's laws and ways, without justice, without respect for the lives and liberty of all of those who are created in God's image, true unity cannot exist.

He decries the horrors of slavery, while exhibiting a total commitment to the exact same spirit of injustice as the slaveholders of the nineteenth century once did.

He speaks of liberty and justice, while showing that he has no conception of the moral basis for either.

He praises those who have fought for freedom and equality over the centuries, while dishonoring their memory with every action he takes in the political arena.

And, in between, he spouts classic Marxist class warfare rhetoric, which, while appealing to the base self-interest, jealously, and greed of the ignorant, accomplishes nothing in its fulfillment but destruction and division for all.

The "hope" he famously offers is a false hope, based in socialist nonsense, flattery, crude political calculation and complete disregard for the intrinsic value of each human life, in open defiance of the moral principles held dear by those who founded and built this "one nation under God."

The true language of liberty and equality has nothing to do, in its spirit or substance, with the kind of virulent racialism advocated in the Obamas' church, or with the failed Marxist vision embodied in Obama's political philosophy and record.

Barack Obama gives strength to the very things that have been the most destructive of the lives of blacks AND whites in this country. The brutal aborting of a whole generation of helpless, innocent children. The government-assisted destruction of the two-parent family. The enslavement of a formerly free and sovereign people to an overwhelmingly powerful and invasive federal government. The banishment from the public square of the Creator, upon Whom our liberty entirely depends.

If we truly care about our posterity, the political career of Barack Obama, who thinks that life and liberty is only for those he arbitrarily deems worthy of it, must be relegated along with all his liberal fellow travelers to the same historical dustbin as their fellow Democrat Stephen A. Douglas, who thought that the Union could survive part slave and part free. That goes for those like John McCain who falsely label themselves "Republicans," but act in the same way. They have squandered any moral authority to lead.

If our goal is to bring about a truly "post-racial" America, one that is based in genuine liberty and equality for all, we must do what the people of Illinois failed to do in 2004 and what the Republican Party has refused to do in 2008: elevate Alan Keyes to the position of service to this country that God has obviously prepared him for.

Why? Because he's black? Not on your life. We should elect him because he's quite simply the best man for the job.

Barack Obama falsely mimics via teleprompter what Alan Keyes, without a single written note, so eloquently and powerfully speaks directly from his heart and mind.

Alan Keyes, the great moral statesman of our day, has been foolishly betrayed by the Republican Party which he has faithfully supported and served throughout his adult life, and he is apparently about to leave it. And so, the duty of "we the people," the sovereign citizens of the United States, irrespective of political party, is to stand up and do the hard work necessary to make sure he's on our presidential ballot come November. We must go over the heads of the failed "leaders" and elites of our time, and make sure that he takes the oath of office in January.

Better than anyone else, Alan Keyes knows what that sacred oath means. And so, with God's help, let us strive to see him prevail over Obama and the others just as Lincoln ultimately prevailed over Douglas.

That generation was willing to sacrifice everything to fulfill the promise of the Declaration of Independence for all. Surely we can muster the active will and the energy to restore it, and preserve it, for the sake of our posterity.


Tom Hoefling is the national political director of America's Revival, Alan Keyes for President.

ACLU Supports Legalized Unregulated Prostitution

Crossposted from STACLU

Since New York Governor Eliot Spitzer brought the topic into the national discussion, I thought it would be interesting to dust off this oldy but goody. I know that some more libertarian leaning people actually agree with the ACLU on this, but I don't. It will be interesting to watch the debate in the comments.

Keep in mind that all laws are based on some moral code. That code isn't necessarily that of any one specific religion, but a reflection of the collective morals of the community and general public. It is my belief that issues like this one should be decided at the state level by the representatives of the people.

Also keep in mind that even in States where prostitution is legal it is regulated. The ACLU believe it should be unregulated. I think this is the most retarded and absolutist position that the ACLU has on this one. I don't know about you, but I don't want someone being pimped on the same corner my kid catches the school bus.

Not only have the ACLU argued before a federal appeals court that having a ban on federal funds to organizations that promote commercial sex work inhibits free speech, but they even advocate the legalization of unregulated prostitution themselves.

The ACLU's Policy 211 is straightforward. "The ACLU supports the decriminalization of prostitution and opposes state regulation of prostitution". They base their argument on several points, including that existing laws are discrimination against women, and the right of individual privacy. They argue that what two consenting adults in private do is their own business. However, when you also oppose zoning laws, and regulation you can hardly argue that prostitution is a private business.

As for it being a privacy issue, it seems a contradiction to me when they also state that the "public" solicitation of prostitution is "entitled to the protection of the First Amendment". "It's not just the bedroom that the ACLU wishes to make off-limits to public censure, but also the local street corner, presumably even if that corner is regularly used by school children crossing the street." Source

And what good would it do for women's rights to decriminalize this? One could argue that women should not be punished for their own exploitation. But how does decriminalizing pimps, buyers, procurers, brothels or other sex establishments offer any solution to this? Decriminalization would do nothing but expand the sex industry and send a message to society that it is acceptable. And a system unregulated would do nothing for women's health, and would only promote the spread disease.

They don't belive in zoning laws, and do believe in fully legalalized, and unregulated prostitution. So there wouldn't be any law that could keep a prostitution house from being a certain distance from your neighborhood, your Church, or your child's preschool. This is especially disturbing when they think child pornography distribution and possession should be legal, and fight for convicted child molesters to live across the street from elementary schools and parks.

This is just one of many in a very long list of extremist positions of the ACLU.

OBAMA A BIBLICAL SCHOLAR? I THINK NOT!

Here we go again, another election cycle, another liberal twisting around the Holy Scripture to justify his immoral world view.

Senator Obama has again stepped over the line stating that "the Sermon on the Mount justifies his support for legal recognition of same-sex unions. He also told the crowd that his position in favor of legalized abortion does not make him "less Christian."

Obama also stated that "his support for keeping it legal does not trespass on his Christian faith."

Of course not, because Mr. Obama's so-called Christian faith is nothing but empty religion with no moral basis. Mr. Obama like most liberals mis-characterize the words of Jesus, and the Bible to attempt to justify their evil they consider to be right.

If legalized abortion does not trespass on a persons faith, then that persons faith is not in the God of the Bible, but in himself, Obama has made himself his own God. People do this all the time, create their own God they are comfortable with, that accepts whatever they accept, and does not cause a problem with their politics.

Homosexuals have created their own God, one that is accepting of homosexual lifestyles, and does not call them to holiness and purity, but rather allows them to continue to live in sin as they please.

This does not represent the God of the Bible, or Jesus Christ at all. The God of the Bible demands absolute moral perfection as outlined in his moral commandments. The God of the Bible does not lower himself to the level where men can be comfortable with their sin, but rather calls then to his level, the level of moral absolutes.

Mr Obama states ""I am a Christian. I am a devout Christian.

NO MR OBAMA! You are a devout religious person, and your religion doesn't call at all. It allows you to wallow in ungodly principles justifying them in your own evil mind. Whatever your own mind perceives to be right, your made up God perceives it to be right also.

Jesus calls for a total transformation of mind, body, and soul!

Faith in Jesus Christ means your values, and world view are also transformed, you are undergoing the process of sanctification, the lifelong process of becoming more like Christ. If this transformation of ones mind has not occurred, they are not Christians, not followers of Christ.

Obama is not qualified to serve as President of the United States of America. He is just another morally corrupt liberal politician who is destined to be a failure. He does not have the integrity or the experience to lead this nation, but Alan Keye's does!

OBAMA TO BULLY AMERICANS TO ACCEPT RADICAL GAY AGENDA

Senator Obama has done it again, he has proven that he is not fit to serve as President of the United States of America. On his campaign website he boasts that when elected President, he will use the "bully pulpit" push the radical socialistic homosexual agenda on all Americans by urging all states to accept civil unions for gays.

Here is the statement that appears on his website:

"I’m running for President to build an America that lives up to our founding
promise of equality for all – a promise that extends to our gay brothers
and sisters. It’s wrong to have millions of Americans living as second-class
citizens in this nation. And I ask for your support in this election so that
together we can bring about real change for all LGBT Americans."

First of all, our founding fathers never would have endorsed sexual deviancy as normal , nor would they have sought to normalize it in the American culture. Secondly, homosexuals already have the same rights that everyone else enjoys, and to use equality as an argument for the forced legalization of homosexual marriage is preposterous indeed.

The claim made that "gays" live as second class citizens is a giant lie that has been told many times over. That is the main tactic that gay activists have used since the creation of the "Gay Agenda" by ACTUP DC to brainwash Americans into accepting homosexuality. You may not realize that ACTUP DC used the writings of Adolf Hitler to design this twisted marketing campaign to push homosexuality on America formally known as the "gay agenda".

THE BIG LIE AND THE PROPAGANDA WAR

SPECIAL REPORT:HOMOSEXUAL BIG LIE


The whole theory of the "Big Lie" basically is that people will believe a big lie versus a small lie, and if it is repeated loudly and often enough, people will buy into it sooner or later.

This shows how anti-American, and anti-Christ Obama really is, we do NOT need him as President, he is not even fit to serve as a Senator. This proves the point that many patriotic conservatives have been stating for years, that communists like Obama are "always on the wrong side of every issue".

Barrak Obama views morality backwards, as is typical with most socialists, because of their hatred for America, and everything good this country stands for (i.e.freedom,justice,democracy).
Obama and Clinton both pose a dire threat to the freedom we all enjoy. Anyone with a little common sense can easily see how backwards these people are, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how very wrong they are.

The human mind left to itself can reason away anything given the appropriate amount of time to deduce the facts. When an individual has NO Biblical Moral foundation, it is a recipe for disaster, and the result is moral catastrophe. Barrak is typical of many other people in this culture we live in, he has designed a God that he is comfortable with, that bends down scrape the bottom of the barrel of moral conscious. In other words, whatever Barrak thinks about homosexuality, his made up version of God goes right along with it, how convenient!

So Obama has rejected the true God of the Bible who has instituted moral absolutes contained in the Law of Moses (the Ten Commandments), for his own depraved moral law that is relative, whatever way the wind happens to blow, huh Barrak!

If people want a black man in the White House there is a far better choice. Dr. Alan Keyes is still out there campaigning for President. His call for "moral revival" in America shows that this man has the integrity, and the moral foundation to sit in the oval office.

WE NEED ALAN KEYES
