President Obama publicly “identified” himself as Muslim for the second time at his G20 press conference today in Turkey. While the mainstream media and other liberals attempted to “explain away” why Barack Obama said “my Muslim faith” in his 2008 interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, hearing those words left me with no doubt that he’s Muslim because under absolutely no circumstances could the words “my…Catholic…Mormon…Lutheran…Muslim…faith” ever come out of my mouth because I’m NOT Catholic, Mormon, Lutheran or Muslim. Yet those words came out of Barack Obama’s mouth so easily and naturally (out of the heart the mouth speaks…Luke 6:45) that he didn’t even realize what he said until George corrected him. But Heal Our Land visitors can read Snopes’ attempt to “explain that away” and decide for themselves if it holds water.
Then when I heard President Obama this morning, I literally couldn’t believe my ears and was sure I must have misheard what he said because I knew that IF I had heard it right, there would be NO plausible explanation for what he said this time other than that he “identifies” Muslim! After chastising anyone who stereotypes Muslims and blames them for terrorism, he said he thinks “Muslims around the world…religious leaders, political leaders, ordinary people, have to ask very serious questions about how did these extremist ideologies take root. Even if it’s only affecting a very small fraction of the population, it is real. And it is dangerous. And it has built up over time and with social media, it is now accelerating. And so…I think on the one hand, non-Muslims cannot stereotype , but I also think that the Muslim community has to think about how WE (and he STRONGLY emphasized “we”) make sure that children are not being infected with this twisted notion that somehow they can kill innocent people…uh…and that it is justified by religion.” He continued talking about things he thinks the Muslim community needs to do and then talked about the refugees coming from Syria, and I couldn’t believe my ears when he said, “The people who are fleeing Syria are the most harmed by terrorism…they’re the most vulnerable as a consequence of civil war and strife. They are parents, they are children, they are orphans…and it is VERY important…that we do not close our hearts to these victims of such violence…and somehow start equating the issue of refugees with the issue of terrorism.” Then the President passionately defended his decision to bring Syrian refugees to the U.S. in large numbers and chided anyone who disagrees with doing that.
There’s no doubt that very few people agree with President Obama’s view that the Syrian refugees are the “most harmed” by ISIS, and his lack of sensitivity in making such a ridiculous statement so soon after the massacre in Paris and the downing of a Russian plane killing hundreds is breathtaking. I strongly encourage Heal Our Land readers to listen to President Obama’s G20 News Conference because there’s a LOT more to be concerned about than just once again publicly identifying himself as Muslim. While he didn’t include himself as a “non-Muslim,” he very clearly referred to himself as part of the “Muslim community” and didn’t make much sense as he kept repeatedly trying to defend his lack of action in fighting ISIS and said he knows that what he’s doing is the only thing that will work, so he’s going to just do more of what he’s been doing.
Another thing that really struck a nerve with me was when President Obama said, “…the terrible events in Paris were obviously a terrible and sickening setback…”, only to go on touting everything he’s done to fight ISIS, which all of the reporters made clear no one thinks is working. So I thought about why that seemed such a strange way to describe what happened in Paris and wondered why anyone would consider it a “setback” or that it would somehow “hinder” or “derail” the fight against Isis, and the only reasonable conclusion is even more disturbing. Since France and other countries are actually becoming more involved and more aggressive in fighting and DESTROYING Isis after the terrorist attack Friday night, and everyone is already questioning the wisdom of allowing more Syrian refugees into their countries (which was what President Obama was the most passionate about in today’s press conference) as a result of the attack, especially since it’s believed that at least one Syrian “refugee” was involved, one has to ask why that’s a “setback” in the fight against ISIS. Well, it would only be considered a “setback” (hindrance) IF the goal is NOT to stop and destroy ISIS and if the goal IS to disperse potential Syrian ISIS fighters throughout Europe and America, which is something people need to give a lot of thought to as well.
One thing’s for certain, either President Barack Obama is a Muslim or he isn’t. And if he isn’t and we mistakenly believe he is, there’s no real harm since many people have believed that for some time now anyway. BUT what if he is a Muslim and has not told us and the world the truth about that? He lied to us about his personal views concerning marriage and same sex marriage when he was running for President in 2008 because he was advised that he couldn’t win otherwise…he lied about his healthcare plan so he could get it passed…he lied about Al Qaeda, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and Benghazi being about a video so he could get re-elected and he keeps lying about “containing” and “degrading” ISIS; which just about everyone but President Obama acknowledges is not true, including most military experts. So why is it unreasonable to believe that he’d lie to us about being a Christian (especially since we seem to be one of his favorite punching bags) and hiding that he’s in fact a Muslim? The most important thing to consider is WHY he’d do that, which is why it’s time for Americans and the rest of the world to start judging Barack Obama (the tree) according to the fruit he bears rather than the fruit of his lips, which we already know can’t be taken at face value. President Obama likes to quote Jesus when it suits his purpose, and it would be particularly prudent for all of us to pay attention to Jesus’ wise counsel in Matthew 7:16-18, where He said: 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
Despite everything President Obama says to the contrary, it’s maddeningly evident to everyone that he’s not seriously prosecuting a real fight against ISIS; rather he just keeps squandering America’s precious resources to maintain the facade as even more people are slaughtered all over the world. And now he’s in the process of using additional American resources to bring countless thousands of military aged Syrian men into our country, which he says are refugees. But what if they’re not? What if the real reason President Obama won’t establish a “no fly safe zone” in Syria is because he wants to see thousands of Syrian “refugees” dispersed throughout Europe and America? It’s time for people to start asking the hard questions and considering what needs to be done about it before it’s too late. We can’t just keep “assuming” that the President keeps doing things that make no sense to us because he’s against war under any circumstances, or just in denial and doesn’t really understand or know what he’s doing. President Obama is NOT a stupid man, so what if he knows exactly what he’s doing and it makes no sense to us because we can’t imagine a President working against the best interest of his own country and worse yet? Well, we had best start viewing what the President is actually DOING through the prism of possibly having less than honorable intentions or we just might well live to regret it.
I pray that we won’t be so blinded by ideology and political correctness that we won’t even ask these questions; yet in the end, America’s fate is in the hand of God and I still believe He can and will heal our land if we heed the wise counsel found in His Word.
