This from “The Pray In Jesus Name Project,” I have not verified all of this, but remember most:
Obama claims “I’m a Christian by choice” but governs as a Muslim
“I’m a Christian by choice,” said President Obama yesterday on the campaign trail, losing his mid-term elections and trying to win Christian votes. Obama seeks to overcome public opinion polls in which 18% say he is Muslim and 43% say Obama’s religion is unknown. But here’s my question: Why does he campaign like a Christian, but govern like a Muslim?
1) While governing, Obama said, “I am a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father and stepson of a Muslim stepfather, my half-brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and I am sympathetic to the Muslim agenda,” during a private meeting with Egyptian Foreign Minister Abul Gheit last year.
2) “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation,” Obama told Sojourners.
3) “John McCain has not criticized my Muslim faith,” Obama told ABC.
4) Obama has twice celebrated Muslim Ramadan with big banquets, but twice refused any White House ceremony for the Judeo-Christian National Day of Prayer.
5) The Obama Administration defended seizing and burning our troops Christian Bibles, but made a big deal when a Christian minister almost desecrated his own Korans.
6) Obama repeatedly defends building a “Victory Mosque” at Ground Zero, but would never ask the Saudi or Afghan governments to allow Christians to build churches.
7) Obama praised Islam as “a great religion and its commitment to justice and progress” in his address to Muslims translated into many languages for worldwide distribution.
While campaigning, however, Obama needs Christian votes to keep his majority in Congress, so now he says: “I came to my Christian faith later in life…my mother didn’t raise me in the church…it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me…Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke to the humility we all have to have as human beings, that we’re sinful and we’re flawed and we make mistakes, and that, you know, we achieve salvation through the grace of God…That’s what I pray to do every day. I think my public service is part of that effort to express my Christian faith.” [But when governing Obama promotes tax-funded abortions, homosexualizes our military against their will, and appoints Judges like David Hamilton who ruled it's illegal to pray "in Jesus' name," but totally OK to pray to Allah in public.] Does anybody see the duplicity here?
I received this via email, and checked in on SNOOPS, and it’s true, although it doesn’t kick in until 2014 and says that Amish will undoubtedly receive an exemption, and Muslims “most likely” will receive one…. Thanks again, Mr. President…what did you say your religion was?
Dhimmitude — What does it mean? Obama used it in the health care bill. Now isn’t this interesting? It was used in the health care law.
Every day there’s another revelation of what Obama and his fellow Democrats are doing to our country.
Dhimmitude — I had never heard the word until now. Type it into Google and start reading. Pretty interesting. It’s on page 107 of the healthcare bill. I looked this up on Google and yep, it exists. It is a REAL word. Amish and others are excluded, including Muslims. I think I could become Amish a whole lot easier than Muslim.
Word of the Day: Dhimmitude
Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-muslims in exchange for tolerating their presence AND as a coercive means of converting conquered remnants to Islam.
ObamaCare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia muslim diktat in the United States. Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured. Islam considers insurance to be “gambling,” “risk-taking” and “usury” and is thus banned. Muslims are specifically granted exemption based on this.
How convenient. So I, as a Christian, will have crippling IRS liens placed against all of my assets, including real estate, cattle, and even accounts receivables, and will face hard prison time because I refuse to buy insurance or pay the penalty tax. Meanwhile, Louis Farrakhan will have no such penalty and will have 100% of his health needs paid for by the de facto government insurance. Non-muslims will be paying a tax to subsidize muslims. Period. This is Dhimmitude.
Dhimmitude serves two purposes: It enriches the muslim masters AND serves to drive conversions to Islam. In this case, the incentive to convert to Islam will be taken up by those in the inner-cities as well as the godless Generation X, Y, and Z types who have no moral anchor. If you don’t believe in Christ to begin with, it is no problem whatsoever to sell Him for 30 pieces of silver. “Sure, I’ll be a muslim if it means free health insurance and no taxes. Where do I sign, bro?”
It is recommended that this post be sent to your contacts. This is desperately important and people need to know about it — quickly! To check it out on Snopes, type this in: Health Insurance Exemptions. Posted for educational purposes only pursuant to the Fair Use doctrine. All of us would be wise to remember this when we vote in November. Those who voted for Obama are to blame for this. Whether it be out of ignorance or whatever, they caused this to be perpetrated on the American people. But you will have a hard time finding one who has the strength of character to admit his/her mistake.
This from Associated Press, the comments in red are by me, or highlighted by me:
WASHINGTON (AP) – The FBI and the U.S. Labor Department are investigating prominent labor leader Andy Stern in their probe of corruption at the Service Employees International Union, according to two people who have been interviewed by federal agents.
The two organized labor officials met with federal agents this summer to answer questions about a six-figure book contract that Stern landed in 2006 and his role in approving money to pay the salary of an SEIU leader in California who allegedly performed no work.
Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the investigation. The FBI and the Labor Department’s office of inspector general declined to comment for the record.
The disclosure about the federal inquiry of Stern – who abruptly resigned as president of the 2.2-million member SEIU in April – comes just weeks ahead of contentious congressional elections in which the union is spending an estimated $44 million to support its favored Democratic candidates.
The SEIU (see below for who the SEIU is…) has been plagued with several financial scandals since 2008, when the Los Angeles Times reported that Tyrone Freeman, head of the union’s largest California local, misappropriated hundreds of thousands of dollars from the union. The union ousted Freeman and demanded that he return the money. No federal charges have been filed against him (of course not, Obama owes his Union cronies BIG time) , but SEIU spokeswoman Michelle Ringuette said the union has been cooperating with the FBI.
Stern left his post two years before the end of his term, saying he wanted to focus more on his personal life (and spend his ill gotten gains) . He remains a member of President Barack Obama’s deficit commission and a highly influential figure in the White House, where he was one of the most frequent visitors last year. (so who’s surprised he’s not being prosecuted) He is also a research fellow at Georgetown University and a paid consultant for the SEIU.
This from Wikipedia:
Service Employees International Union (SEIU) is a labor union representing about 1.8 million workers in over 100 occupations in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. SEIU is focused on organizing workers in three sectors: health care (over half of the union’s members work in the health care field), including hospital, home care and nursing homeworkers; public services (local and state government employees); and property services (including janitors, security officers and food service workers).
SEIU is the fastest growing labor union in the United States and has over 150 local branches. It is affiliated with theChange to Win Federation and the Canadian Labour Congress. SEIU is based out of Washington, D.C., and has several internal divisions which include: Communications, Government Affairs, New Media, Organizing, Political, Global Strength, Pension/Benefits, Community Strength, Research, and Legal.
The union states that its top priorities are to stand up for working families to help bring economic relief to millions across the country, fix the nation’s broken health care system, and fight to guarantee workers’ rights on the job. SEIU is sometimes referred to as the “purple ocean” at political events because of the union’s easily recognizable purple shirts. The union is also known for its Justice for Janitors program and strong support for Democratic candidates.

I have some exciting — and urgent news to share with you!
Governor Sarah Palin is coming to join myself and Newsmax for a special webcast series.
On October 12, Gov. Palin with Newsmax.com, will kick off this special pre-election online webcast series “Make America Great Again.”
I am urging every American to join Gov. Palin and Newsmax for this important program.
This election is simply too critical not to be totally informed on the key issues — and find out how you can make a difference at the local level.
As you may recall, “Make America Great” was Ronald Reagan’s slogan for his 1980 campaign.
And Michael Reagan, President Reagan’s son, will be hosting our webcast series. Michael will interview Governor Palin and other opinion leaders.
I will also be taking part in the program along with several other prominent opinion leaders.
We have a real chance to put the brakes on President Obama’s radical agenda. This “Make America Great Again” program is not to be missed!
Make sure you RSVP early to be part of Newsmax’s Governor Palin webcast.
Rahm is leaving to run for Mayor of Chicago….
From The Daily Beast:
Rahm-like-figure is all the more needed with a president in the Obama mold, it would seem. Obama has a tendency to waffle or backtrack (e.g., the Ground Zero mosque pronouncements); to wring hands (e.g., the surge delay in Afghanistan); and to talk on both sides of a question (e.g., banks are evil/bankers need to be appreciated). There is, to Obama, a milquetoastian core, one that needs perpetual strengthening by an inner-sanctum bruiser. Cut to Rahm.
He cajoled, bullied, clubbed heads together, and kicked grown men in their delicate parts, all in the service of party and administration.
Every successful administration must comprise a mix of Wonks and Enforcers, and without Rahm Emanuel, the Obama administration will be woefully ill equipped in the Enforcer department. To compare with presidents past: President Reagan had Ed Rollins and Lyn Nofziger as his enforcers; David Stockman, Martin Anderson and George Shultz were his wonks. President Clinton had himself, his wife and Jack Lew for wonkery, and James Carville for enforcing/thuggery. Even after the departure of the economics triumvirate, there are still plenty of Wonks in the Obama administration, the president himself being Wonk-in-chief. But Rahm’s departure wrecks the Enforcer quotient.
This from cyber alert:
A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll didn’t come up with numbers pleasing to the NBC News staff, though Brian Williams, on Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News, did his best to spin the findings as showing “there is really bad news if you’re an incumbent officeholder of either party” and Chuck Todd insisted the public wants more from the elections than “just change [in] the color of the jerseys.” Todd, however, couldn’t avoid reporting that “the change that voters want” includes 54 percent who “hope that this Tea Party enthusiasm in the Republican Party makes them a fiscally conservative party” and “54 percent want to see the repeal of health care.” Plus, “42 percent tell us” the Tea Party movement has “been a good thing” – more than twice as many as see it as a “bad thing.” Unmentioned by Todd or Williams: Those pro-Tea Party/anti-ObamaCare numbers came from a polling sample dominated by MSM television news consumers.
