Why I Can't Vote For Obama

Why I Can't Vote For Obama
By Huntley Brown

Dear Friends,
A few months ago I was asked for my perspective on Obama, I sent out an e-mail with a few points. With the election just around the corner I decided to complete my perspective. Those of you on my e-list have seen some of this before but its worth repeating..

First I must say who ever wins the election will have my prayer support. Obama needs to be commended for his accomplishments but I need to explain why I will not be voting for him.

Many of my friends process their identity through their blackness.

I process my identity through Christ. Being a Christian (a Christ follower) means he leads I follow. I can't dictate the terms he does because he is the leader.

I can't vote black because I am black I have to vote Christian because that's who I am. Christian first black second. Neither should anyone from the other ethnic groups vote because of ethnicity. 200 years from now I wont be asked if I was black or white. I will be asked if I know Jesus and accepted him as Lord and savior.

In an election there are many issues to consider but when a society gets abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning to name a few wrong economic concerns will soon not matter.

We need to follow Martin Luther King's words don't judge someone by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I don't know Obama so all I can go off is his voting record.

His voting record earned him the title of the most liberal senator in the US Senate in 2007.

NATIONAL JOURNAL: Obama: Most Liberal Senator in 2007 (01/31/2008)

To beat Ted Kennedy and Hilary Clinton as the most liberal senator, takes some doing.
Obama accomplished this feat in 2 short years. I wonder what would happen to America if he had four years to work with.

There is a reason planned parenthood gives him a 100 % ratings.
There is a reason the homosexual community supports him.
There is a reason Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Castro, Hamas etc loves him.
There is a reason he said he would nominate liberal judges to the supreme court.
There is a reason he voted against the infanticide bill.
There is a reason he voted No on the constitutional ban of same-sex marriage.
There is a reason he voted no on partial birth abortion.
There is a reason he voted no on confirming Justices Roberts and Alito. These two judges are conservatives and they have since overturned partial birth abortion. The same practice Obama wanted to continue.

Lets take a look at the practice he wanted to continue.

The 5 Step Partial Birth Abortion procedure
A. Guided by ultrasound, the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps.
(Remember this is a live baby)
B. The baby's leg is pulled out into the birth canal.
C. The abortionist delivers the baby's entire body, except for the head.
D. The abortionist jams scissors into the baby's skull. The scissors are then opened to enlarge the hole.
E. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brains are sucked out, causing the skull to collapse. The dead baby is then removed.
God help him.

There is a reason Obama opposed the parent notification law.

Think about this you can't give a kid an aspirin without parental notification but that same kid can have an abortion without parental notification. This is insane.

There is a reason he went to Jeremiah Wright's church for 20 years.

Obama tells us he has good judgement but he sat under Jeremiah Wright teaching for 20 years. Now he is condemning Wrights sermons. I wonder why now?

Obama said Jeremiah Wright led him to the Lord and discipled him. A disciple is one in training. Jesus told us in Matthew 28 v 19 - 20 Go and make disciples of all nations. This means reproduce yourself. Teach people to think like you, walk like you, talk like you believe what you believe etc. The question I have is what did Jeremiah Wright teach him?

Would you support a White President who went to a church which has tenants that said they have a

1. Commitment to the White Community
2. Commitment to the White Family
3. Adherence to the White Work Ethic
4. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the White Community .
5. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting White Institutions
6. Pledge allegiance to all White leadership who espouse and embrace the White Value System
7. Personal commitment to embracement of the White Value System.”
Would you support a President who went to a church like that?

Just change the word from white to black and you have the tennants of Obamas former church. If President Bush was a member of a church like this, he would be called a racist. Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton would have been marching outside.

This kind of church is a racist church. Obama did not wake up after 20 years and just discovered he went to a racist church. The church can't be about race. Jesus did not come for any particular race. He came for the whole world.

A church can't have a value system based on race. The churches value system has to be based on biblical mandate. It does not matter if its a white church or a black church its still wrong. Anyone from either race that attends a church like this would never get my vote.

Obama's former Pastor Jeremiah Wright is a disciple of liberal theologian James Cone, author of the 1970 book A Black Theology of Liberation. Cone once wrote: “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.

Cone is the man Obama's mentor looks up to. Does Obama believe this?

So what does all this mean for the nation?

In the past when the Lord brought someone with the beliefs of Obama to lead a nation it meant one thing judgement.

Read 1 Samuel 8. When Israel asked for a king.
First God says 1 Samuel 8 v 9 Now listen to them; but warn them solemnly and let them know what the king who will reign over them will do."

Then God says
1 Samuel 8 v 18 When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king
you have chosen, and the LORD will not answer you in that day."
19 But the people refused to listen to Samuel. "No!" they said. "We want a king over us. 20 Then we will be like all the other nations, with a king to lead us and to go out before us and fight our battles."
21 When Samuel heard all that the people said, he repeated it before the LORD. 22 The LORD answered, "Listen to them and give them a king."
 

Here is what we know for sure

God is not schizophrenic

He would not tell one person to vote for Obama and one to vote for McCain. As the scripture says a city divided against itself cannot stand, so obviously many people are not hearing from God.

Maybe I am the one not hearing but I know God does not change and Obama contradicts many things I read in scripture so I doubt it.

For all my friends who are voting for Obama can you really look God in the face and say Father based on your word, I am voting for Obama even though I know he will continue the genocidal practice of partial birth abortion.

He might have to nominate three or four supreme court justices, and I am sure he will be nominating liberal judges who will be making laws that are against you.

I also know he will continue to push for homosexual rights, even though you destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this.I know I can look the other way because of the economy.

I could not see Jesus agreeing with many of Obama's positions. Finally I have two questions for all my liberal friends.

Since we know someone's value system has to be placed on the nation,

1 Whose value system should be placed on the nation.

2 Who should determine that this is the right value system for the nation?

Blessings,
Huntley Brown

House Democrats Contemplate Abolishing 401(k) Tax Breaks

By Bob Barney

Powerful House Democrats are eyeing proposals to overhaul the nation’s $3 trillion 401(k) system, including the elimination of most of the $80 billion in annual tax breaks that 401(k) investors receive. This is a warning we have been telling everyone about for months now. What most middle-class persons have not figured out is the incredible tax that the Democrats intend to extend to the middle and lower classes! For example, if we go into a management British type health care system, do we need out P-plans? Many of our readers may not know this, but hundreds of thousands of retired Americans have P-plans worth billions if not a trillion dollars that companies have set aside to help their employees pay for healthcare. Well if healthcare is nationalized, the democrats claim that the money in these P-plans should be put into the health care fund to pay for those that don't have the means to take care of themselves! This could be a trillion dollar middle class confiscation of wealth! Now comes the 401K issue. Social Security is going bust in 2016. We are trillions behind in debt over Social Security and our 401K accounts could pay that defecit off!  These are not "tax increases," this is confiscation of your money! The government will steal all of your money that you have saved. This is happening right now! Is this one reason why Wall Street is crashing and trillions of dollars are being pulled out of this US economy and going into Swiss bank accounts? WAKE UP AMERICA!

Obama Charts ‘Radical’ Redistribution of Wealth Strategy in 2001 Radio Interview

OBAMA:"The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent, as radical I think as people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution. At least as it's been interpreted..."

Bible fact No. 19: Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob not Jews

Major misconception about heroes of Old Testament cleared up


Posted: October 26, 2008

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

One of the most common misconceptions some people have about the Bible is that the Old Testament centers only on Jews and Judaism, while the New Testament focuses on Christians and Christianity.

Many assume some of the most well-known heroes – including Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (whose named was changed to Israel) – were Jews or Jewish.

But when the Holy Scriptures are read without any preconceived notions, it is impossible for those people to have been Jews.

How can this be?

The answer is simple. Those people were all born before a man named Judah, whose name is the origin of the word "Jew."

This is just one of the stunning facts brought to light in "Shocked by the Bible: The Most Astonishing Facts You've Never Been Told," the stunning new best-seller by Joe Kovacs, the executive news editor of WND.


"You know that chicken wings can't exist without chickens," says Kovacs. "There's no apple cider without apples and no banana cream pie without bananas. Thus, fundamentally, there cannot be Jews without Judah existing first. Until there was even a person who had the name of Judah, everyone born before him could not possibly be a Jew."

In fact, the first time the word "Jews" is even found in Scripture is a full 12 books into the Bible.

Not only that, at this very first mention, the Jews are found to be at war with – believe it or not – Israel! Yes, that's correct. The Jews were at war with Israel.

That might seem a bit mind-boggling, but just like the North and South were in conflict during the American Civil War, the Bible clearly shows that Israel was actually battling the Jews.

"Shocked by the Bible" has become an instant smash, skyrocketing to No. 1 in three Bible-related categories on Amazon.com even before its official release, and hit No. 322 among all books within 24 hours of its debut, with readers giving it high praise


"Shocked by the Bible" rocketed to No. 1 in three Bible-related categories on Amazon.com even before its official release.

It's still ranked near the top of Amazon's Most Wished For List for all Bible-related books. It also soared to No. 1 on the WND Best-Seller list.

Simply put, "Shocked by the Bible" is an educational juggernaut that not only reveals what the Bible really says, but also what it doesn't say. It's a massive news report exposing common misconceptions and answering questions that have endured for centuries.

Obama's birth certificate sealed by Hawaii governor. Guess we know why Obama really went back!

ELECTION 2008


Says Democratic senator must make request to obtain original document

Gov. Linda Lingle, R-Hawaii

HONOLULU, Hawaii – Although the legitimacy of Sen. Barack Obama's birth certificate has become a focus of intense speculation – and even several lawsuits – WND has learned that Hawaii's Gov. Linda Lingle has placed the candidate's birth certificate under seal, and instructed the state's Department of Health to make sure no one in the press obtains access to the original document under any circumstances.

The governor's office officially declined a request made in writing by WND in Hawaii to obtain a copy of the hospital-generated original birth certificate of Barack Obama.

"It does not appear that Dr. Corsi is within any of these categories of persons with a direct and tangible interest in the birth certificate he seeks," wrote Roz Makuala, manager of Constituent Services in the governor's office, in an e-mailed response to a WND request seeking the information.

Those listed as entitled to obtain a copy of an original birth certificate include the person born, or "registrant" according to the legal description from the governor's office, the spouse or parent of the registrant, a descendant of the registrant, a person having a common ancestor with the registrant, a legal guardian of the registrant, or a person or agency acting on behalf of the registrant. ...more

Even Mild Sleep Apnea Increases Heart Risks

People with even minimally symptomatic obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may be at increased risk for cardiovascular disease because of impaired endothelial function and increased arterial stiffness, according to a study from the Oxford Centre for Respiratory Medicine in the UK.

Cell Phones Fry Sperm

Men who are heavy users of cell phones have up to 40 percent lower sperm counts than lighter users, according to a new Australian study which demonstrated that DNA in semen is damaged after 16 hours of exposure to cell phone radiation.

Researchers at the University of Newcastle created a device that irradiated sperm with radio waves set at the same frequency as cellular phone calls. “After 16 hours of exposure, there was clear evidence of DNA damage,” said study spokesman Professor John Aitken, who characterized the damage as high levels of DNA fragmentation.

Junk Food Causes a Third of Heart Attacks


Diets heavy in fried foods, salty snacks and meat account for about 35 percent of heart attacks globally, researchers reported on Monday.

Their study of 52 countries showed that people who ate a "Western" diet based on meat, eggs and junk food were more likely to have heart attacks, while those who ate more fruits and vegetables had a lower risk.

Coffee Shrinks Breasts

Swedish researchers at Lund University have found a clear link between the amount of coffee a woman drinks and the size of her breasts. Amazingly, drinking three or more cups of coffee each day could cause a woman’s breasts to shrink!

Oncologist Helena Jernstrom noticed that large-breasted women were more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer, but found that drinking at least three cups of coffee reduced their risk of developing breast cancer. She began looking for a link and found a gene in half of all women that relates to coffee intake and breast size. The researchers also studied almost 300 women, quizzing them about their coffee intake and their bust measurements.

Gastric Bypass Reduces Heart Risks


The risk faced by obese people of having a heart attack or other cardiovascular "events" is reduced substantially after they undergo gastric bypass surgery to lose weight, according to a recent study.

The take-home message is that "bariatric surgery can be considered as a means to reduce cardiovascular risk (in obese patients) after conservative treatment options have failed," Dr. John A. Batsis told Reuters Health.

Praying 'in Jesus' name' elevated to Supremes

Town councilman banished from rotation for claiming name of Christ

Rev. Hashmel Turner

Justices on the U.S. Supreme Court are being asked to overturn one of their former colleagues, Sandra Day O'Connor, who wrote in an appellate level decision that excluding anyone who prays "in Jesus' name" from a rotation of officials who open city business meetings is fair and reasonable.

Attorneys with The Rutherford Institute have asked the high court to overturn the opinion issued by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Hashmel Turner, a Christian who was told he alone of all council members in Fredericksburg, Va., would not be allowed to use the name of his God during the routine meeting prayers.

The appeals court had concluded that such prayers actually were "government speech" and, therefore, not protected by the First Amendment. But Rutherford lawyers say the city's attempt to dictate the content of prayers violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment as well as Turner's free speech and free exercise rights.

That's trouble, the institute said. In fact, the decision "has already triggered a discriminatory backlash against state-trooper chaplains in Virginia and … threatens to undermine free speech rights around the country."  ...more


Newspaper shows Obama belonged to socialist party

Democrat's campaign denied allegations, but new evidence indicates membership

Excerpt from New Party publication (Courtesy New Zeal blog)
JERUSALEM – Evidence has emerged that Sen. Barack Obama belonged to a socialist political party that sought to elect members to public office with the aim of moving the Democratic Party far leftward to ultimately form a new political party with a socialist agenda.

Several blogs, including Powerline, previously documented that while running for the Illinois state Senate in 1996 as a Democrat, Obama actively sought and received the endorsement of the socialist-oriented New Party, with some blogs claiming Obama was a member of the controversial party.

The New Party, formed by members of the Democratic Socialists for America and leaders of an offshoot of the Community Party USA, was an electoral alliance that worked alongside the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN. The New Party's aim was to help elect politicians to office who espouse its policies.

Like everything else, it appears as if Oprah was lying again.Drudge Report is saying that Oprah Winfrey is offering to "produce" the half-hour Barack Obama advertisement set to air on Oct. 29.

Drudge reports that "She's been begging Obama to let her help." Both camps deny this story, but both have lied before. Obama said that he would take public financing, which he lied about and backed away from that pledge and Oprah, well just go back in

The Loss of a Republic?

By Pat Boone

At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, it’s reported that a lady approached the venerable Benjamin Franklin and asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?”

And the grand old man responded gravely, “A republic—if you can keep it.”

You may have heard that quote before, but have you asked yourself just what Ben Franklin was getting at? Well, the long, tiresome, and often contentious convention had almost ended with nothing, with members going back to their home states angry and bitter. In the midst of apparent breakdown and failure, it was Franklin himself who stood up and proposed that starting the next morning, the convention should open with prayer and a sermon, because it was obvious that their momentous objective could not be achieved without the direct intervention of God, the One all the attendees credited with their very existence.

And starting from the very next day, after the morning prayers and sermons, the Constitution was brought to final form and agreed to. It was unlike any document in history, purporting to guarantee every citizen equality, possibility, security, and liberty. There would be no monarch, no despot, no ruling cabal. No segment of American society would be able to impose its will unchecked. The freedom to worship, to speak freely, to dissent or to promote would be available to all; the elected would govern with the consent of the governed. And this whole mighty enterprise would be held together by respect for, and obedience to, law—law based on the Constitution itself and managed by the collective will of the people.

The word for that fabulous concept is “republic.”.....more

New Drug Shows Exenatide-Like Promise in Type 2 Treatment

An experimental exenatide (Byetta)-like drug called liraglutide has shown the ability to enhance insulin and glucagon production and suppress appetite in type 2 patients, according to a report in the British medical journal The Lancet.

Liraglutide is a manmade analog of the hormone GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), which stimulates the growth of insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas and insulin secretion.

Fructose Sets Stage for Sudden, Rapid Weight Gain


Eating too much fructose can induce leptin resistance, a condition that can easily lead to becoming overweight when combined with a high-fat, high-calorie diet, according to a new study with rats.


Although previous studies have shown that being leptin resistant can lead to rapid weight gain on a high-fat, high-caloric diet, this is the first study to show that leptin resistance can develop as a result of high fructose consumption. The study also showed for the first time that leptin resistance can develop silently, that is, with little indication that it is happening.

High blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. It is sometimes called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms, and many people have it for years without knowing it.Data spanning six years through 2004 showed that 29 percent of U.S. adults had high blood pressure, compared to 24 percent in the six-year period ending in 1994, the researchers said.....more

John Paul Aide Reveals 1982 Pope Stabbing Cover-Up

The late Pope John Paul II was injured by a crazed, knife-wielding priest in a 1982 stabbing that was kept secret until now, Reuters reported.

Pope John Paul’s former top aide opens up about the pope in a new documentary film called “Testimony.” The film was made from Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz’s memoir, published last year.

On May 12, 1982, John Paul visited a shrine in Portugal to give thanks for surviving an assassination attempt a year earlier, when a Spanish priest lunged at him with a dagger. The fact that the knife actually cut the pope was covered up.

"I can now reveal that the Holy Father was wounded. When we got back to the room (in the Fatima sanctuary complex) there was blood," Dziwisz says in the documentary, Reuters reported.

Dziwisz_Stanislaw Dziwisz also says that when the pope was unable to speak properly several days before his 2005 death, he told his aides that when he could no longer speak it was time for him to die.

On May 13, 1981 John Paul was shot in St Peter's Square by Turkish gunman Mehmet Ali Agca. The pope later met Agca during a prison visit and forgave him.

John Paul died on April 2, 2005, at age 84.

Did you know ...

  • The Bible doesn't say Jesus died on a Friday or rose at sunrise Sunday morning
  • No wise men at all visited baby Jesus in a Bethlehem manger. (They actually met Jesus for the first time in a house when he was a young child, not a babe in a manger)
  • The practice of decorating a tree with silver and gold is actually condemned by God
  • God never said "Let Me make man in My image"
  • "Easter" has vanished from the Bible, yet many Christians still revere the name of that ancient fertility goddess as something holy
  • God sought to kill Moses
  • Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were not Jews
  • There were not just two of each animal aboard Noah's Ark
  • The Bible doesn't say Noah's Ark landed on "Mount Ararat"
  • "God the Father" is never mentioned in the Old Testament
  • Jesus did not come to make everyone understand His message

"I think it's time people wake up and find out what they've been missing," says Kovacs, a self-described Bible fan. "My goal is to educate people about the solid truth of Scripture and to stop the spread of erroneous information. I want people to crack open their Bibles and see with their own eyes what's actually printed on the pages, and what's not. They can come to their own conclusions."

Even before its release from publisher Thomas Nelson, hundreds of copies of "Shocked by the Bible"rocketing to the No. 1 position on WND's Best-Seller List, as well as No. 1 in three categories on Amazon.com: Bible and Other Sacred Texts; Commentaries and Concordances.

Some readers are already sounding off.

"Your book has changed my life almost as much as the Bible has!" exclaims Donna Hoagland of Muncy, Pa., who calls herself "A Servant of Christ." "I sat down and read the first 75 pages without a thought about getting up and doing anything else. It was so intriguing."

Henry Mullis of Rockwell, N.C. says: "Thanks for another great book, I pray that it will get people interested in the Scriptures once again. Believe it or not there are some of us out here who actually know the Bible and teach it in church. Maybe I should write a book on all the things people say that are in the Bible which are not. ... It saddens me to know that most of God's people don't know His Word. I laughed when I read the promo which stated that Abraham, etc. were not Jewish. It's technically true, but boy, will the Jewish community howl." have been flying off the shelves,

Some well-known figures are raving as well:

"If you think you really know the Bible, better think again. Joe Kovacs takes a close look at the greatest story ever told and separates myth from reality. My favorite parts of the book deal with Christmas and Easter. Check out 'Shocked by the Bible.' You may well be shocked."
Bill O'Reilly, anchor, Fox News Channel

"Your parents never told you THIS STUFF was in the Bible."
  – Melanie Morgan, radio talk-show host, co-author "American Mourning"

"'Shocked by the Bible' is nothing short of genius. From start to finish, Joe Kovacs turns the subject of Scripture into a fun-filled, information treasure that's virtually impossible to put down. The truth of what's really in the Bible will simply stun the world."
Joseph Farah, editor of WorldNetDaily

The book even delves into "lighter" facts that just never seem to be brought up in church.

Ronald Reagan, In His Own Words!

By Bob Barney
     Above, I have a commentary today about what is happening in America. I use quotes from Barry Goldwater, and especially Ronald Reagan. Thanks to the hard work of Rush Limbaugh, we have excerpted some text from Ronald Reagan speeches going all the way back to 1964! I have highlighted in bold some very fascinating advice from one of America's greatest presidents. This is a must read! His words ring truer today then when he first spoke them!Ronald Reagan, In His Own Words.....


Doomsday Headlines around the world

By Bob Barney
  Below are examples of world headlines in major newspapers around the planet. Never before, at least in recent memory, have we seen headlines read like pages of the Bible. The purpose of The Plain Truth is to remind everyone, that there is a God and there is a Devil and that some of the news we read has to do with one of the two! This is Satan's world, according to the Apostle Paul, but God sometimes makes it very clear that God is involved behind some of the events that are happening today. These are warnings to heed God's advice... Click on each headline and read the stories.
