Obama campaign office features Che Guevara flag
Candidate attracts 'people who think mass murderers are romantic revolutionaries'

The Fox TV affiliate in Houston has captured images of a volunteer in a campaign office for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama working in front of a flag featuring the image of Che Guevara, the South American revolutionary who became Fidel Castro's executioner after the communist takeover in Cuba.

And while the Obama campaign has issued a statement placing a modest distance between the campaign and its "volunteers," the issue of such an image on display in an office operating on behalf of a man hoping to be commander in chief of the world's last remaining superpower is raising alarms.

Even Obama supporters have been forced into corners because of the issue, with one likening the Texas state Republican Party to Guevara, to whom have been attributed hundreds of executions of anti-Castro leaders.

Under the heading "Barack Guevara," Investor's Business Daily raised some of the more pointed questions, to which the campaign responded only with a statement: "The office featured in this video is funded by volunteers of the Barack Obama Campaign and is not an official headquarters for his campaign."

"How is it a front-runner for the highest office in the land can reject an American flag on his lapel but permit the display of a huge Cuban flag at one of his offices, emblazoned with a mass murderer's mug?" the publication asked.

"Barack Obama, displaying the same 'anything goes' standard of patriotism he showed when he ostentatiously refused to wear a U.S. flag in his lapel, now shows he's got a whole different idea about patriotism," the publication continued.

"Rather than repudiate the image, Obama would only call it 'inappropriate,' apparently without insisting it be taken down. That contrasts with his dismissal of his Senate colleagues who wear lapel flags as 'hypocrites.' Some hypocrites," IBD said.

"The display of the Castroite flag with Che's picture on it sends a particularly disturbing message about his campaign. Apparently, Obama tends to attract the kind of people who think of mass murderers like Che and Fidel as romantic revolutionaries. Those same people see Obama as a man with a messianic message.

"These are the voters he'll be indebted to should he win higher office," the publication warned.

But even worse, such a situation "coincides uncomfortably" with the candidate's demands for a "no-strings-attached" relationship between the United States and communist Cuba.

"Obama's naοve idealism is based on a false understanding of history. Cuba is a nation that aimed Soviet missiles at us in 1962 and is likely to do the same if and when Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez gets advanced weapons from Russia or Iran," IBD said.

And, the publication said, that's not all: Cuba also in 1962 tried to launch a 9/11-style attack on New York's subways, a plot masterminded by Guevara, and in 1982 it tried to get the U.S.S.R. to launch nukes at the U.S. In 1996, Cuba shot down two airplanes and killed six Americans who were trying to rescue Cuban refugees at sea.

"Had a political candidate in Latin American pasted up a picture of Che at election time, there'd be no doubt where he stood – ones who did just that are now running countries with names like Bolivia and Venezuela. Is that what Obama really stands for?"

In a commentary on National Review, there was surprise that the Obama team only called the flag "inappropriate."

"What does it say that among these Obama volunteers, none of them thought to say, 'Hey, fellas, you know, this guy ran show trials and executions … Is this really the image of 'change' we want to project to the electorate?'"

Some Obama supporters defended the candidate's response.

Steve Benen, a Huffington Post contributor, wrote in his Carpetbaggerrerport blog, "If it behooves Obama to renounce Che, would it also behoove [GOP candidate John] McCain to renounce the Texas GOP's lunacy?"

He had explained, "The far-right sure does find some odd things to get excited about" and describe the outrage over the Guevara flag as a "major-league freak-out."

Benen said he wanted to "nip this in the bud."

"The reality is, a volunteer found office space in advance of actual campaign staffers arriving in Houston. One of these volunteers put up the flag, presumably taken from some dorm-room wall. When actual, paid campaign aides show up – they're due by the end of the week – one can safely assume the flag will be gone."

He likened the Texas GOP to Guevara because he says it suggests the U.S. monetary system be returned to the gold standard, the decriminalization of sodomy be reversed, the IRS be abolished and the U.S. should drop out of the United Nations.

On the Lone Star Times website, the authors said they had tentatively identified the volunteer as a Maria Isabel, based on her matching photos and identification in an earlier news report.

And on the Powerline Blog, the authors criticized the Obama campaign's "muted" response.

"This incident is significant, however, in that it reveals what sort of change at least some of Obama's supporters think he has in mind. Are they wrong? Maybe, but what has Obama said or done to disabuse them of the idea that he is a Che-admiring leftist?" the authors said.

"Then again, maybe these far-left Obama supporters are 'confused' because they've been following his votes in the Senate. Obama was one of only 29 senators who voted to filibuster the provision of the FISA reform bill that extended immunity to telecommunications companies that cooperate with law enforcement and intelligence authorities in identifying international terrorist communications," they wrote.

UM? - It seems that the TRUTH is finally beginning to come out.

I wonder how much more TRUTH is going to come out on both sides? Did anyone wonder if there were other reasons why Huckabee has stayed in the race?


At this point, we already know there is much more on both sides that isn't common public knowledge. As an example, how much of the public knows about George Soros financing Obama and McCain - AND WHAT THAT ACTUALLY MEANS!

I would hope that we are still at a point where most of the public CARES about these connections and WHAT THEY MEAN! If not, we'll get what we deserve. BLUNTLY - Overall as a nation - what have we done to deserve the continuing Blessings of GOD? I'm sad to say that we don't deserve much. Overall, this nation has turned its back on GOD and is running in the opposite direction. Overall, we are in a sad and chaotic condition.

Obama bill: $845 billion
more for global poverty
Democrat sponsors act OK'd by Senate panel
that would cost 0.7% of gross national product

Sen. Barack Obama, perhaps giving America a preview of priorities he would pursue if elected president, is rejoicing over the Senate committee passage of a plan that could end up costing taxpayers billions of dollars in an attempt to reduce poverty in other nations.

The bill, called the Global Poverty Act, is the type of legislation, "We can – and must – make … a priority," said Obama, a co-sponsor.

It would demand that the president develop "and implement" a policy to "cut extreme global poverty in half by 2015 through aid, trade, gotcha120" and other programs.

When word about what appears to be a massive new spending program started getting out, the reaction was immediate.

"It's not our job to cut global poverty," said one commenter on a Yahoo news forum. "These people need to learn how to fish themselves. If we keep throwing them fish, the fish will rot."

Many Americans were alerted to the legislation by a report from Cliff Kincaid at Accuracy in Media. He published a critique asserting that while the Global Poverty Act sounds nice, the adoption could "result in the imposition of a global tax on the United States" and would make levels "of U.S. foreign aid spending subservient to the dictates of the United Nations."

He said the legislation, if approved, dedicates 0.7 percent of the U.S. gross national product to foreign aid, which over 13 years he said would amount to $845 billion "over and above what the U.S. already spends."

The plan passed the House in 2007 "because most members didn't realize what was in it," Kincaid reported. "Congressional sponsors have been careful not to calculate the amount of foreign aid spending that it would require."

A statement from Obama's office this week noted the support offered by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

"With billions of people living on just dollars a day around the world, global poverty remains one of the greatest challenges and tragedies the international community faces," Obama said. "It must be a priority of American foreign policy to commit to eliminating extreme poverty and ensuring every child has food, shelter, and clean drinking water. As we strive to rebuild America's standing in the world, this important bill will demonstrate our promise and commitment to those in the developing world.

"Our commitment to the global economy must extend beyond trade agreements that are more about increasing profits than about helping workers and small farmers everywhere," he continued.

The bill institutes the United Nations Millennium Summit goals as the benchmarks for U.S. spending.

"It is time the United States makes it a priority of our foreign policy to meet this goal and help those who are struggling day to day," a statement issued by supporters, including Obama, said.

Specifically, it would "declare" that the official U.S. policy is to eliminate global poverty, that the president is "required" to "develop and implement" a strategy to reach that goal and requires that the U.S. efforts be "specific and measurable."

Kincaid said that after cutting through all of the honorable-sounding goals in the plan, the bottom line is that the legislation would mandate the 0.7 percent of the U.S. GNP as "official development assistance."

"In addition to seeking to eradicate poverty, that (U.N.) declaration commits nations to banning 'small arms and light weapons' and ratifying a series of treaties, including the International Criminal Court Treaty, the Kyoto Protocol (global warming treaty), the Convention of Biological Diversity, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and the Convention of the Rights of the Child," he said.

Those U.N. protocols would make U.S. law on issues ranging from the 2nd Amendment to energy usage and parental rights all subservient to United Nations whims.

Kincaid also reported Jeffrey Sachs, who runs the "Millennium Project," confirms a U.N. plan to force the U.S. to pay 0.7 percent of GNP would add about $65 billion a year to what the U.S. already donates overseas.

And the only way to raise that funding, Sachs confirms, "is through a global tax, preferably on carbon-emitting fossil fuels," Kincaid writes.

On the forum run by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, one writer reported estimates of taxes from 35 cents to $1 dollar a gallon on gasoline would be needed.

"This is disgusting, sickening and angers me to the depths of my soul," the forum author wrote. "Obama wants us to support the world. I wonder how they intend to eliminate poverty. Most of the money always winds up in some dictator hands and in the U.N. coffers."

WND calls to Obama's office, as well as the offices of others who supported the plan, were not successful in obtaining a comment.

Another forum participant said, "Yes, and we should also eliminate sickness of any kind and get rid of poverty as well. Then, too, we should make certain that everyone in the world has equal assets, equal money, a college education, etc… After that, or maybe while we are solving all of the world's little problems, we can take care of the polar bears, eliminate the internal combustion engine, and, and, and… Oh dear, if only we would just go ahead and do all the things the dreamers want us to do. Let's stop using oil and burning coal while we're at it. Then we can make it illegal to be overweight and then we can. ..."

One forum contributor said since the legislation doesn't specifically demand "taxes," but instead leaves the mandatory "implementation" up to the president, "maybe the tooth fairy will leave [this new money] under the president's pillow."

Kincaid reported several more budget-minded senators have put a hold on the legislation "in order to prevent it from being rushed to the floor for a full Senate vote."

The legislation requires the president to do whatever is required to fulfill a strategy that would result in "the elimination of extreme global poverty and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide … who live on less than $1 per day."

It further requires the president not only to accomplish that goal but, "not later than one year after the date of the enactment of this act," to submit a report on "the contributions provided by the United States" toward poverty reduction.

It's becoming apparent that the tag of "Global" is attached to many things these days, and many of them seem to fit Bible Prophecy perfectly. Many of them are Humanist in nature, so they concentrate on man and leave GOD out. Sadly, this will also include so-called global religions that we've already seen the foundations for. As crazy as this sounds, global taxes, courts, and governments are on the way. A blend of humanism, communism, and socialism appears to be the model. It will work for a short time and lead to chaos pretty quickly.

I said this sounds CRAZY to me, but the world is listening to it with great interest. In fact, I think it's insane, but the front-runner for president thinks these and other RADICAL changes are what the world needs. Large portions of a "dumbed-down" public are buying this insanity and cheering wherever he goes. What the world needs is GOD! This world has already gotten so evil that only GOD can fix it, but we are going to see MUCH WORSE before the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST!

The world is embracing and promoting INSANITY AND EVIL. When GOD'S appointed time comes, nothing will be able to stop it or slow it. Bible Prophecy will be fulfilled perfectly, and that time might be near. Man will get to try their most wild and evil dreams and SEE where they lead. AND, the devil will be most happy to help. In fact, Bible Prophecy states that the devil will be heavily involved. GREAT HOSTS will be deceived, and the ease of their deception is directly tied to their lack of GOD. There will be cheers and excitement at the beginning, but the HORRORS of the TRIBULATION PERIOD will start.

YES - we do have a "dumbed-down" public now. The "dumbing-down" process only took a few decades. It started with the systematic removal of GOD from our lives. Snaring and devouring our children was a high priority, so public schools were the top target. There was some resistance along the way, but the progress was a wild success. So, the devil and evil are everywhere now, including many of our churches and what we allow into our homes. For Christians, our answers and instructions have never changed:  GOD'S WORD AND GOD! We need to run a good race, fight a good fight, and finish our course. GOD has already laid out our course for us, so we need to study HIS WORD, pray, and yield to HIS Will. If HIS Will for us involves persecution, beating, imprisonment, or physical death - so be it!

Above all, we MUST NOT be ASHAMED of the GOSPEL OF THE GRACE OF GOD. The GOSPEL message still has GREATER POWER than any other, and this is what the world is desperate for.


GOOD NEWS!

1:  Romans 3:10 NASB  as it is written, "THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE; THERE IS NONE WHO UNDERSTANDS, THERE IS NONE WHO SEEKS FOR GOD; ALL HAVE TURNED ASIDE, TOGETHER THEY HAVE BECOME USELESS; THERE IS NONE WHO DOES GOOD, THERE IS NOT EVEN ONE."

2:  Romans 3:23  NASB  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

3:  Romans 5:12  NASB  Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned--

4:  Romans 6:23  NASB  For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

5:  Romans 1:18  NASB  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

6:  Romans 3:20  NASB  because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.

7:  Romans 3:27  NASB  Where then is boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith.

8:  Romans 5:8-9  NASB  But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him.

9:  Romans 2:4  NASB  Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?

10:  Romans 3:22  NASB  even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction;

11:  Romans 3:28  NASB  For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.

12:  Romans 10:9  NASB  that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;

13:  Romans 4:21  NASB  and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.

14:  Romans 4:24 NASB  but for our sake also, to whom it will be credited, as those who believe in Him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead,

15:  Romans 5:1  NASB  Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

16:  Romans 10:10  NASB  for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

17:  Romans 10:13  NASB  for "WHOEVER WILL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD WILL BE SAVED."


Thanks be unto GOD for HIS unspeakable GIFT!, JESUS CHRIST, our Lord and Saviour forever!

Swooning supporters
fainting for Obama
Candidate prepared with water bottle,
call for EMTs – fakery or fanaticism?

Call it the Barack Obama traveling salvation show – campaign rallies and speeches that seem like the secular counterpart of tent-meeting revivals and evangelistic sermons common in the U.S. a century ago.

And, in apparent similarity to the religious enthusiasm of that bygone era, some of those coming to hear the Democrat presidential candidate "preach" his message are fainting as he speaks.

A video compilation by Breitbart.TV shows Obama on several occasions breaking off his speeches to address someone who has collapsed, usually close to the stage, and to call for medical personnel while he offers bottled water to the overcome supporter.

The similarity between the events and the emotive opportunity it offers the candidate has some on the web questioning whether the campaign is employing shills or whether the phenomenon is evidence of fanaticism and cause for concern.

WND reported on the latest instance when Obama spoke to a crowd of 18,000 in Seattle a week ago:

"Democratic Sen. Barack Obama eschews the savior language used to describe his campaign for the White House, but it seemed rather natural when he interrupted 50 minutes of occasional soaring rhetoric to toss a bottle of water to a fainting woman in the throng below, then calmly gave out orders to ensure she was well."

A similar incident occurred when Obama spoke in Hartford, Conn., on the eve of Super Tuesday:

"At one point, about half way through his speech, Senator Obama stopped to ask for EMT support and water for a woman who had apparently fainted in the standee section directly in front of the stage," reported the the Choate school newspaper. "Michael Selberg '08 who attended the rally found this swift action very revealing of Obama's character. He said, 'Evidently, Obama pays attention to what is going on around him, to his constituents. He was watching to see how people were reacting to his speech. He was a very powerful speaker and evidently he overwhelmed one person.'"

In January, the Los Angeles Times reported, "Obama's first and only rally on election day came to a sudden and lengthy stop when a young woman in the Dartmouth College gym fainted, and was eventually rolled off on a gurney by emergency medical technicians. At first Obama half-narrated the episode, saying soothing things like, 'She's OK,' 'She's talking.' But the longer she lay on the floor, the quieter Obama got, standing on the podium, arms folded, looking worried as the medical crew worked."

At a September rally in Montecito, Calif., "a woman standing in front of the stage appeared to faint as Obama spoke about Iraq," the Associated Press reported. "The candidate paused and asked the crowd to make way for firefighters. One supporter shouted, 'You're a good man,' leaving Obama momentarily at a loss for words. 'Well, I'm not the only one stopping to help her,' he said, sounding almost embarrassed."

While the string of faintings and the candidate's response have impressed Obama's supporters, others aren't so certain.

One unidentified poster to a Seattle Post-Intelligencer article on the fainting spells, made a connection to '70s spiritual guru Jim Jones, who led his Bay Area followers to South America where over 900 died in a mass suicide:

"No one, other than Jim Jones – founder of the People's Temple, has captivated crowds like Obama. This has nothing to do with the 'Kool-Aid' party Jones foisted on his people. Watch footage of his sermons at the People's Temple, while in San Francisco. Same crying, passing out, etc."

"MuncsMom," a poster at the Lucianne.com news forum, echoed the theme:

"Barack Obama is the black Jim Jones. I like George Bush and worked hard for him but never felt THIS way. Pretty scary," she wrote.

"Three of the liberal women in the neighborhood were at a Ladies Night Out 'hood party last week and were gushing and swooning over Obama. One of them said she'd like to 'do' him. These are grown women with kids. ... We're now reaping the fruits of Phil Donahue, Sally Jessy Raphael, Desperate Housewives, Sex in the City, and of course, Oprah!"

Radio host Michael Medved yesterday said he concluded, after viewing several videos, the fainting episodes were staged. He noted the faint always occurred near the stage, Obama remained calm and used the same words in each of the occurrences and the person who collapsed was always a woman.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer photographer Joshua Trujillo rejected the fake vs. fanatic choice, noting that people often arrive early and unprepared to see their favorite candidate, standing for hours to get the best position.

"There are always people that faint. Guaranteed," Trujillo said. "When somebody has to stand at one spot, at a view up front of their candidate, and they wait hours upon hours with no water, no food, it's expected and understandable."

At the Seattle appearance, the first Obama supporters arrived three hours before the candidate came on stage.

"We have to get there hours in advance. If we're not smart enough to take food and water, then by the time the candidate comes out, we're feeling a little faint," he said.

He noted that he had seen two women faint at a Hillary Clinton rally the day before. They were taken away on stretchers.

A poster named psych92, responding to Trujillo's explanation, noted he had seen people faint at a John Kerry rally.

"Somehow, I don't think anyone was joining a Kerry Kult," he wrote.

"That would be from narcolepsy, I believe," fired back an unidentified poster.

Neither one is a fitting description but rather just the opposite.

I disagree with this. Jim Jones is not the only one to captivate and control crowds in this manner. It is very reminiscent of the effect that Hitler had on many people.

Amen!

I can barely stand to listen to Obama. I've tried a couple of times and am in fear of SWOONING from shock, disbelief, and BALONEY! My thoughts have absolutely nothing to do with race, gender, ethnic background, etc. My thoughts pertain directly to things I never thought that I would hear from a person running for city mayor, much less someone running for President of the United States. Who knows, maybe the people are SWOONING from DISGUST!

If he ran for mayor here and was the only one running - HE WOULD LOSE!

In looking at background, beliefs, and affiliations, I can't believe what we're watching!

Hello Pastor Roger,

Brother, I had the exact same thoughts. We are really seeing many strange things around the world that don't make any sense at all. While thinking about Obama, I was also thinking about the Arch Bishop in Great Britain suggesting that they adopt Sharia Law. This was just recently, and my immediate thoughts were that the world is an insane and evil place. Things like this are being said here also, just not by a nationally known religious figure yet. Great Britain has subversive armies in the midst, and the same armies are growing here. Maybe they need to make it a requirement for immigration that they must want to overthrow the government before they can come in.

INSANITY! and EVIL!

Obama mentor identified as communist
Frank Marshall Davis 'discussed American imperialism, colonialism, exploitation'

The mysterious "Frank" cited as a friend and adviser by Democratic president contender Barack Obama while he was growing up in Hawaii has been identified as Frank Marshall Davis, a member of the old Moscow-controlled Communist Party USA.

The identification comes from Cliff Kincaid in his column, "Obama's Communist Mentor," which was made available on the Accuracy in Media website.

"Let's challenge the liberal media to report on this," he wrote in his column. "Will they have the honesty and integrity to do so?"

Kincaid, who earlier reported on Obama's pending plan to ship $845 billion overseas to battle "global poverty" as evidence of his socialist leanings, said the newly revealed connection is even more worrisome.

"Obama's communist connection adds to mounting public concern about a candidate who has come out of virtually nowhere, with a brief U.S. Senate legislative record, to become the Democratic Party frontrunner for the U.S. presidency," he wrote.

In Obama's book, "Dreams From My Father," he repeatedly refers to his friend and adviser as "Frank."

"The reason is apparent: Davis was a known communist who belonged to a party subservient to the Soviet Union. In fact, the 1951 report of the Commission on Subversive Activities to the Legislature of the Territory of Hawaii identified him as a CPUSA member. What's more, anti-communist congressional committees, including the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), accused Davis of involvement in several Communist front organizations," Kincaid said.

Kincaid noted Obama has admitted attending "social conferences" and seeing Marxist literature. "But he ridicules the charge of being a 'hard-core academic Marxist,' which was made by his colorful and outspoken 2004 U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Alan Keyes."

He described the link as "ominous."

"Decades ago, the CPUSA had tens of thousands of members, some of them covert agents who had penetrated the U.S. government. It received secret subsidies from the old Soviet Union," Kincaid wrote.

He noted even Obama describes "Frank" has having "some modest notoriety once."

Kincaid notes that a history professor in Houston reported that Davis "befriended" a family whose son was named Barack Obama, "who retracing the steps of Davis eventually decamped to Chicago."

"It was in Chicago that Obama became a 'community organizer' and came into contact with more far-left political forces, including the Democratic Socialists of America…," Kincaid wrote. "The SDS laid siege to college campuses across America in the 1960s, mostly in order to protest the Vietnam War, and spawned the terrorist Weather Underground organization."

He also reported Kathryn Takara, a professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, confirmed that Davis is the "Frank" in Obama's book.

She did her dissertation on Davis, and wrote that he brought, "an acute sense of race relations and class struggle throughout America and the world" and that he openly discussed subjects such as American imperialism, colonialism and exploitation, according to AIM.

Obama's campaign also, for the third straight day, declined to respond to WND requests for comment on the report of a Minnesota man who alleges he shared cocaine with Obama when Obama was a state lawmaker in Illinois.

WND has reported on claims made by Larry Sinclair, who claims he took cocaine in 1999 with Obama, and participated in homosexual acts with him.

Sinclair said his story was ignored by the news media, so he made his case last month in a YouTube video, which has now been viewed about 350,000 times.

When it still was ignored, Sinclair said, he filled a lawsuit in Minnesota District Court, alleging threats and intimidation by Obama's staff.

Nothing would surprise me these days. I listened to part of an Obama speech last night on a news show, and I'd like to know who he thinks will pay for all of his pie in the sky programs he promised. It was a parade of giveaway programs, and the overall cost would have been astronomical. In effect, we would turn into a communist country. It looks like Obama and Clinton are having a contest about who can offer the largest number of giveaway programs. What they don't do is tell us who will be paying for all of the giveaways. CAN'T WE ALL GUESS WHO?

I'll just speak for my wife and I and say that we will have to do without necessities if the government raises our taxes. I've got to know, can most average people afford to have their taxes raised?

Anyone that answers yes to that question definitely is not the average person and has a whole lot more money than I do.

Is Obama the messiah?
Websites capture wave of transcendent fervor

"Is this a messianic movement? A cult of personality? Or just good ol' fashioned politics?" Those are the questions an Internet blog called "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?" began with one year ago.

By simply highlighting media reports since then – including WND's account of an Obama rally in Seattle – the website has captured the wave of euphoria that has followed the Democratic senator's remarkable rise to the brink of the party's presidential nomination.

The site, laced with photos and magazine covers illustrating the theme, is topped by a Obama quote strategically ripped from a Jan. 7 speech at Dartmouth College just before the New Hampshire Primary in which he told students, "… a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany, and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote" for Obama.

The blog prominently displays the July 11 cover of the German magazine Der Spiegel, which has a photo of Obama under the title, "The Messiah Factor, Barack Obama and the Yearning for a New America."

Slate.com's Timothy Noah introduced last year his tongue-in-cheek "Obama Messiah Watch," a periodic feature "considering evidence that Obama is the Son of God."

"Is Barack Obama – junior U.S. senator from Illinois, best-selling author, Harvard Law Review editor, Men's Vogue cover model, and "exploratory" presidential candidate – the second coming of our Savior and our Redeemer, Prince of Peace and King of Kings, Jesus Christ?" Noah wrote. "His press coverage suggests we can't dismiss this possibility out of hand."

"I therefore inaugurate the Obama Messiah Watch, which will periodically highlight gratuitously adoring biographical details that appear in newspaper, television and magazine profiles of this other worldly presence in our midst," Noah proclaimed.

Noah added that readers are invited to submit similar details, such as "Obama walking on water, Obama sating the hunger of 5,000 with five loaves and two fishes – from other Obama profiles. And also, of course, to repent, just in case the hour approacheth nigh."

WND reported how the numerous instances in which Obama has interrupted speeches to attend to a fainting follower has some questioning whether the campaign is employing shills or whether the phenomenon is evidence of fanaticism and cause for concern.

The "Is Barack Obama the Messiah?" blog features a "Transfiguration" image of the Illinois senator – a photo by Michael Edwards that appeared in a New York magazine story published April 16, 2007

According to the magazine, the photo was taken at a fundraiser at the Manhattan home of Steven and Judy Gluckerstern. It shows Obama elevated from the crowd, standing on a staircase that ascends to a darkened window above his head.

George Soros is clearly seen sitting at the base of the staircase to Obama's immediate left.

The website cites numerous well-known figures under the heading of "Conversions," who represent Obama in larger-than-life terms.

New Age luminary Deepak Chopra said in a Jan. 5 op-ed piece on the Huffington Post that "the X factor which sets Barack Obama aside as a unique candidate is his hard-won self-awareness."

"If we are lucky, we will wake up and begin the journey back to self-awareness as people," Chopra wrote. "That happens only rarely, and now it has happened to a junior senator from Illinois."

Chopra asserted that if Obama "makes it all the way to the White House, it will represent a quantum leap in American consciousness and a promise to restore America's position in the world."

MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews recently claimed he felt a "thrill going up my leg" listening to an Obama speech.

Matthews bubbled on, claiming Obama "speaks about America in a way that has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with the feeling we have about our country. And that is an objective assessment."

Oprah Winfrey, after listening to speech Obama gave to a Des Moines audience Dec. 8, told reporters, "When you listen to Barack Obama, when you really hear him, you witness a very rare thing. You witness a politician who has an ear for eloquence and a tongue dipped in the unvarnished truth."

Conservative critics have pondered whether the messiah phenomenon will help or hurt Obama.

Writing in the American Thinker, consulting editor J.R. Dunn noted the tendency liberals have to see their leaders as transcendent beings, "someone more than human, someone with a touch of the divine."

Examining how liberals tend to put Franklin Roosevelt and John Kennedy on a God-like pedestal, Dunn commented that for the American left, "Leaders don't handle tasks, they lead movements, they embody the spirit of the age. They transform. Leaders, to put it simply, are fuehrers."

Internet blogger Jon Swift, writing critically about the "Obama Messiah" movement, muses "there comes a time in the life of every adolescent girl, and even Chris Matthews, when they peel the yellowing photos of Scott Baio they cut out of Tiger gotcha76 their bedroom walls and toss them in the garbage bin."

"Barack Obama will be [47] in August," Swift noted. "Will Chris Mathews and Obama's other devoted disciples still have his picture on their bedroom walls then?"

Christians can truly answer this question NO! At least those that have truly read their Bible.


Mat 24:24  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Mat 24:25  Behold, I have told you before.
Mat 24:26  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
Mat 24:27  For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Mat 24:28  For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
Mat 24:29  Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mat 24:30  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mat 24:31  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.


We are seeing more of this by the day. People are wanting an answer to the problems and woes of this world but they are looking in the wrong place. They have not learned from the errors of mankind and many will fall victim to deception.

WHEW!

This is either a really bad joke or a nightmare - I can't decide which one.

People like Obama won't like the SECOND COMING OF CHRIST!
