Submitt Issues analysis Oh happy day By Marie Jon…
By: Marie Jon'
Rush Limbaugh recently played a song on his radio talk show to remind us that there was a time of innocence. The song had made the top ten on America’s Billboard list and remained there for many months. Edwin Hawkins was a pianist at Ephesian Church of God in Christ in California when he came up with the popular version of “Oh Happy Day” in 1968.
Back then, America embraced its Judeo-Christian heritage. Look at where we are now. Because too many of us have looked the other way, “progressives” have taken the lead with our families and youth. They’ve stolen our country from under our noses. It’s time to put a stop to them.
I am not going to mince words. It was not a good day when President Barack Obama was sworn into office. With help from the media, he was able to get away with many lies about who he was. Nearly two years later, we now know the reason for the subterfuge. He has been extremely busy remaking America and turning our country into a Marx-inspired shambles.
I have, many times, discussed the reasons why Obama despises our country and its citizenry. Need I remind you that he sat in a Black militant church for over twenty years with an ideologue radical pastor, Marxist Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Another member of the Obama team is Rev. Jim Wallis. He also is a Marxist. It’s most unfortunate for America that Wallis is a member of the Obama “White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.” Obama chose these men because they mirror his own beliefs, both politically and spiritually.
Obama’s subversive intentions are examined in a new book by Stanley Kurtz titled Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism.
Kurtz gives us a glimpse in an Oct. 12 National Review article, “Obama’s Radical Past,” excerpted below â€”
“On the afternoon of April 1, 1983, Barack Obama, then a senior at Columbia University, made his way into the Great Hall of Manhattan’s Cooper Union to attend a ‘Socialist Scholars Conference.’ There Obama discovered his vocation as a community organizer, as well as a political program to guide him throughout his life.
“The conference itself was not a secret, but it held a secret, for it was there that a demoralized and frustrated socialist movement largely set aside strategies of nationalization and turned increasingly to local organizing as a way around the Reagan presidency â€” and its own spotty reputation. In the early 1980s, America’s socialists discovered what Saul Alinsky had always known: ‘Community organizing’ is a euphemism behind which advocates of a radical vision of America could advance their cause without the bothersome label ‘socialist’ drawing adverse attention to their efforts.
“A loose accusation of his being a socialist has trailed Obama for years, but without real evidence that he saw himself as part of this radical tradition. But the evidence exists, if not in plain sight then in the archives â€” for example, the archived files of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which include Obama’s name on a conference registration list. That, along with some misleading admissions in the president’s memoir, Dreams from My Father, makes it clear that Obama attended the 1983 and 1984 Socialist Scholars conferences, and quite possibly the 1985 conclave as well. A detailed account of these conferences (along with many other events from Obama’s radical past) and the evidence for Obama’s attendance at them can be found in my new book, Radical-in-Chief: Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism.” Full Article
Serfs up â€” the age of rationing
Let me ask you â€” are you better off with this administration’s social and political decisions? Do you have a job? Are you making a better living for your family? Do you still own your own home? Are you paying your bills? Is your family eating better? Can you afford to take a vacation? Or are you barely making ends meet?
Are you shocked to see the vacancies at the malls and the number of stores that have completely gone out of business? Are you wondering why America is coming undone and people are grumbling and frightened? Aren’t you? Isn’t it a shame that college graduates can’t find a job?
Are you comfortable with the fact that Obama shoved his unsustainable healthcare system down everyone’s throats? It should be renamed RationedCare.
There will be death panels for the young and the elderly who are deemed unable to contribute to society. Don’t come down with a long-lasting critical medical condition or you will be told you’ve had enough medical treatments. Don’t forget what Obama said to a woman about her elderly mother before the bill was passed. Obama’s HealthCare solution for the elderly was to just take a pill.
Will America stand for this lack of compassion and senseless, ugly abuse? If we do not vote in the Republican Party to repeal and stop the madness, this will become the norm under the guise of medical treatment. Call it what it really is â€” a form of cold and heartless euthanasia.
The choice is ours
Strange how it did not matter to the president or the Democrat Party when concerned citizens marched into Washington, D.C., and made it plain that they wanted nothing to do with the redistribution of wealth that is called socialism.
What did we see just a few weeks ago at the Lincoln Memorial? It couldn’t have been more blatant and out in the open. Marxists, communists, and union thugs mingled with Democrat politicians along with the most far-left organizations. The president made no apologies for the unruliness and the un-American messages on the hand-held signs, although it was his website that promoted the gathering. Go figure. Does all of this give you a safe, warm, and fuzzy feeling?
Are you going to continue to allow our Constitution to be trashed by a president who appoints special czars and bypasses the House and Senate?
If all of these facts do not motivate you to get out and vote and take back your country, I don’t know what will. These elections, which are being held across the nation, are our last chance to grab our country back and begin to repair all the damage that has been willfully perpetrated upon it.
Who we are
We’ve got to take a stand. With boldness and humility, let’s understand who we are. We’re grassroots patriots who’ve come this far by faith and leaning on the Lord. With His help, we can right the wrongs of this crazed administration.
Our winning of these elections will be sweeter as we give God the glory. It will be an “Oh Happy Day!”
