"A house divided against itself cannot stand." is a quote often attributed to Abraham Lincoln. While it is true he used it at an address before Republican delegates at a Republican Convention in Springfield, Ill., on June 16th, 1858 as the Republican candidate for Senate, it was not his to own.
The reality is it is a statement by Jesus recorded in three gospels - Matthew, Mark and Luke. I chose the one from Mark 3:24-27 because it is so complete and so appropriate for today: "If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself, and is divided, he cannot stand, but has an end. No one can enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house." [emphasis mine]
Another way to say it would be: Divide and conquer. Plain and simple. Enter Obama - the ultimate divider.
I believe that I have reached the point of utter disgust and total despair that anyone in the media or any politician will put this current president or his objectives in proper perspective. Even renowned political commentators tread lightly. What is so difficult about declaring that this president is not stupid, inept, inexperienced, 'over his head', etc. when the reality is, he is exceptional at doing the job he set out to do. He is getting "A's" in all areas. Maybe even A+!
It is pretty well known he was a student of Alinsky. Therefore, he has mastered the technique of 'lying', considered to be 'relative' in his world. Per Alinsky: "An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth - truth to him is relative and changing.....To the extent that he is free from the shackles of dogma, he can respond to the realities of the widely different situations....." . (Does the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as the ACA or Obamacare work as an effective example for you?)
Does anyone still believe he is a Christian? This (also from Alinsky): "A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat [laboring class] by the capitalists [Republicans].....logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism [Republicans, conservatives, tea partiers, grass roots Americans], then into the third state of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat [laboring class], and finally the last state - the political paradise of communism." [emphasis mine] Please take in the impact of the last four words because we are well on our way there.
More from Alinsky -
"The first step in community organization is community disorganization." (also known as chaos and we have plenty of that, e.g. our southern border 'crisis')
"An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent...He must create a mechanism that can drain off the underlying guilt for having accepted the previous situation for so long a time." (better known as class warfare, racism)
And what of the communist goals for America?
- "eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds it violates the principle of 'separation of church and state'" (also occurring in the military on a regular basis)
- "discredit the American Constitution" (claiming it is a living document or stating it is out of date)
- "discredit the American founding fathers" (a bunch of radicals)
- "discredit all forms of American culture.....discourage the teaching of American history" (check out current 'history' being taught in the schools - amazingly re-invented)
- "support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture" (Obamacare/socialized medicine)
- "discredit the family as an institution" (tearing down traditional marriage; at will abortion)
- "emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents" (children are part of the 'collective')
Think about it. Does this man do his job well? He blew in to the American scene passing himself off as the great unifier and everybody believed him. Many who have taken the rose colored glasses off their eyes are exhibiting strong signs of 'buyer's remorse'. As well they should.
There have been many who saw this man for what he was in the beginning but the color of his skin gave him an edge not only to black America but to Americans all over the United States suffering from a guilty conscience. What we do know of his background can be sketchy to blurred. The reality is - it's not the color of his skin that should be the deciding factor but rather his policies that should determine how we view him and his presidency.
We definitely do not know the real man occupying our White House and we may never know. What we do know is that he is methodically destroying this country and he could care less if his 'approval' rating descends to zero. He has a mission and he will accomplish it come hell or high water.
