Obama appears almost obsessed with the earth’s perfectly normal climate-changing patterns, but the myth of ‘climate change’ has nothing to do with him being a champion of the environment at all. The explanation is really very simple: Climate change fits into the Obama agenda for “fundamentally transforming” the United States. His goal has been to change the U.S. from its position as the world economic and military leader, and to knock America down into just being another member of the world community, exceptional only in how all other countries are “exceptional in their own way”. It’s because Obama basically despises everything America is, he hates America’s history and our rich heritage. In the eyes of Obama, America has been a force for evil and oppression and not a beacon of freedom in the world. Growing up in Indonesia Obama was never exposed in school to the richness of American history. He never learned about the American Revolution and how we broke away from our British oppressors. He hasn’t a clue about Manifest Destiny and our expansion west across a vast continent into uncharted territories. The American pioneer spirit and our great American story was unknown to young Barack. Once he eventually made it to the U.S. his only influences were from staunch Marxists who viewed America with disdain, and who saw the U.S. as a nation of racists who discriminated against others with dark skin like him. One just doesn’t hear the President discuss his youth growing up, and very little is known about his time as a young boy overseas or in the United States, other than the fact that he spent a great deal of time being raised by his grandparents both of whom were avowed communists. Obama was indoctrinated growing up and during his formative years by a bevy of leftists. Proclaiming “climate change” as the greatest threat we face, far above the threat from terrorism or the Russians and Chinese all plays into Obama’s grand scheme. When you cripple industry with countless regulations, many based on the myth of climate change, you disrupt the U.S. economy. When you disrupt the American economy you put people out of work and make them dependent on the government. When you make people dependent on the government for their very existence you create a population of minions. Freedom and self-determination is a concept that is foreign to the ‘Obamunists’ way of thinking. The myth of climate change isn’t at all about his legitimate concern for our environment. The myth of climate change is all about the Obama Administration’s desire to “fundamentally transform the United States” and to control the American people.
(“Explaining Obama’s Obsession” by D.W. Wilber dated February 16, 2015 published by Town Hall at http://townhall.com/columnists/dwwilber/2015/02/16/explaining-obamas-obsession-n1957943 )
Man-made Global Warming is a Hoax, and people are realizing that Global Warming is the biggest scientific scandal ever. When you challenge someone’s religion, be prepared for a spirited reaction. Science is based on hypothesis, experimentation, and analysis not by consensus. Consensus is a political term, a political concept and a clue that the Man-made Global Warming agenda is a political agenda. The only credible science these scam artists are using is Political Science. Al Gore, the world’s self-proclaimed leading Man-made Global Warming expert and lobbyist and by sheer coincidence one of the world’s largest green entrepreneurs, has garnered a Nobel Peace Prize, an Oscar and millions of dollars by scaring the wits out of people who believe the cherry-picked data he and others present as evidence. This has always been a scam perpetrated by the evil upon the naïve. It isn’t about the environment, it’s about power. The on-going revelations of collusion, deception, and fraud between government-funded scientists, research universities, bureaucrats, green corporations, the Media and the Man-made Global Warming Illuminati should open the eyes of even the willfully blind. Remember, when you challenge someone’s religion, you should expect a spirited reaction. Now that the curtain has been pulled away and everyone can see grifters are manipulating levers behind the great and munificent High Priest Gore, all the stops have been pulled out. The Man-made Global Warming Lobby presses day and night to ensnare the United States in an international treaty in which the West confesses guilt for causing Man-made Global Warming as unrealistically as the Treaty of Versailles forced the Germans to accept 100% of the blame for World War I. The Copenhagen monstrosity also imposes wealth-transfer payments upon the U. S. potentially as destructive as the reparations demanded of a defeated Germany by the victorious Allies. The fact that Man-made Global Warming has been exposed as the greatest swindle ever attempted will not phase the ideologues and statists who’ve gained a stranglehold on power in America. They’re going to force an economy killing Cap-N-Trade boondoggle and the Copenhagen Capitulation down our throats before the voters get a chance to speak as loudly as the Tea Party Patriots and the honest scientists have spoken already. Hordes of voters awaken from a media-induced trance and realize the change they can believe in was really bait-and-switch. In the hearts of many, buyer’s remorse replaces the mesmerizing effects of a manufactured messiah than rising up in their righteous indignation they elect him again. Knowing they have all the power needed to accomplish their goal of downsizing America and seeing a voter’s revolt on the horizon the statists push forward the hoax of Man-made Global Warming. I’m not saying the climate doesn’t change, because I can truthfully testify that it does about every three months. The planet tilts, wobbles and moves in its orbit and there’s a thermonuclear ball of heat and light out there called the Sun which I believe has more to do with global warming and cooling than anything man has ever or will ever do.
(“Huge Hoax Holds Humanity Hostage” by Robert R. Owens dated February 13, 2015 published by American Clarion at http://www.americanclarion.com/huge-hoax-holds-humanity-hostage-36464 )
It is pointless to answer the insincere, bully arguments of militant homosexual activists, because they will not accept the truth, no matter how plainly, simply and in small words it is presented to them. It is important to refute their lies for the many others out there who do not see its progress nor understand the very real danger to some of our fundamental freedoms that this movement poses. We are already seeing our rights being eroded. Just ask Christian business owners who are being successfully sued by homosexual activists when the Christians refuse to participate in the shameful abomination of marriage. Do not be misled by homosexual activists’ false comparison of the civil rights movement for the equal treatment of black people to homosexuals. As wise people in the black Christian community say, “Don’t compare your sin to my skin!” Our society has become so deeply corrupt, that a growing number of people no longer believe that homosexual behavior is wrong, although it always has been wrong and always will be wrong. A growing number of people also do not understand that marriage is one thing only: the union of a man and a woman, and it can be nothing else, or it’s not marriage. People who lack a right moral foundation will not accept the truth. However, a lack of understanding by anyone does not change the fact that our rights and freedoms are in the cross-hairs of the militant homosexual movement. If the evil sham of same-sex “marriage” and other “rights” of the homo-fascist movement are imposed on the entire United States of America, these freedoms will be in grave danger:
· Freedom of Conscience and Religion - Christian business owners’ freedom to run their businesses by the moral code of the Bible and according to their consciences will be effectively outlawed in America. They will not be free to reject the lying premise of same-sex “marriage,” and under penalty of law, will be forced to violate their conscience and religious beliefs to accommodate same-sex “marriage” business demands.
· Freedom of Association - The “Employment Non-Discrimination Act” (ENDA) being pushed in Congress by homo-fascist sympathizers, would make it illegal to “discriminate” in hiring and firing practices against men who dress like women (and the reverse) or who display other in-your-face sexually deviant behavior. Even though this has not yet become the law of the land, many major companies have already adopted internal policies to the same effect. They mandate the acceptance in the workplace of mentally disordered “transgender” people, who imagine they are the opposite sex.
· Freedom to Protect Your Children From Pro-Homosexual Indoctrination - If same-sex “marriage” and ENDA become law, the creeping pro-homosexual indoctrination in the public schools will become mandatory, as it already is in California. Many parents don’t realize that the “anti-bullying” programs in the public schools are nothing more than thinly disguised pro-homosexual propaganda.
· Other Predictable Outcomes - Freedom of speech is a big target of the entire radical Left, including its homo-fascist wing. Homosexuals despise the truth about the immoral, unnatural, unhealthy behavior of homosexuality and “transgenderism.” It is predictable that they will continue to work to silence those who oppose the part of their agenda that seeks to normalize perverse sexual behavior and destroy the meaning of marriage.
It is also predictable that churches will be targeted, as well. After all, if same-sex “marriage” is the law of the land, then what “right” do church leaders have to refuse to accommodate these sodomites who want to be “married” in the church? These people will not stop until they obliterate any opposition to their twisted, despotic agenda. As with everything the Left does, the “issue” is never the issue. For example, “ObamaCare” is not about “affordable health care.” It’s about power and control over the medical industry, the health insurance industry, and our personal health care. In the same way, the man-made “global warming” hoax is not about “saving the planet.” It, too, is about power and control over our freedom of movement, our private property rights and our very way of life. Obama’s illegal amnesty is not about “compassion” for poor illegal aliens. It’s about creating a massive, permanent underclass of Democrat voters. The same goes for the radical homosexual movement whose members claim that they only want “marriage equality” and equal “rights”, but the real goals of this evil movement are rooted in tyranny against our freedoms, especially Christian expression, and if it’s not stopped, these and other freedoms will become a fading memory.

There has been a lot of criticism on the bad effects of Obama's executive orders admitting millions of illegal immigrants and giving them welfare, Social Security, driver's licenses and a path to citizenship. The asylum immigrants are brought into our country and settled in 180 U.S. cities by nine contractors (pretending to be "religious charities") and 350 subcontractors. These lucky immigrants are mostly selected by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Iraq tops the list of refugee immigrants with 20,000 arriving each year, of whom 76% are Muslims. At least 10,000 are Somalis, and our State Department has announced that we will be admitting 10,000 Syrians this year, mostly Muslims. The policy of admitting genuine refugees from persecution is not criticized, but the high numbers, the program secrecy, the lack of community involvement in the decision-making of where the immigrants will be located, and the large-scale admission of ethnic groups that have no intention of assimilating in America are all suspect. The contractors who bring in these immigrants are paid by the head with U.S. taxpayers' money. They immediately expand the numbers of foreigners they are handling by bringing in the refugees' family members. The big difference between these asylum refugees and other immigrants is that the refugees are entitled to all forms of government-paid welfare the minute they set foot in America, whereas our laws require ordinary legal immigrants to show that they have the means to support themselves and will not become a "public charge." The feds even give the asylum immigrants startup money for three to six months, which gives their contractor time to sign them up for subsidized housing, health care, food stamps, job counseling and training. One of the biggest problems with this program is that the immigrant kids are quickly enrolled in public schools. We can blame this piece of mischief on supremacist judges, who ruled in 1982 that immigrant kids are entitled to attend U.S. public schools. We now have U.S. school districts where dozens of different languages are spoken. Many of these kids not only don't speak English, they don't even speak Spanish and require translators who can speak languages unknown to most Americans. It has become a tremendous cost to the U.S. taxpayers to provide interpreters in schools and in the criminal justice system. The top language of refugees now entering our country is Arabic, and Somali is the 4th language most often spoken. Many cities are now resisting this invasion of their towns and schools. The countries sending the largest number of refugees are Iraq, Burma, Bhutan and Somalia. The Obama administration is now pushing hard for us to take 50,000 from the Congo and 50,000 to 75,000 from Syria. One critic said "We can survive terrorism, but we can't survive migration."
(“The Costly Asylum Racket” by Phyllis Schlafly dated February 17, 2015 published by Town Hall at http://townhall.com/columnists/phyllisschlafly/2015/02/17/the-costly-asylum-racket-n1958170 )
In his relentless drive to leave no aspect of American life unmolested, Obama’s next stop is cyberspace. Having “reformed” U.S. healthcare, Obama now aims to “repair” the World Wide Web. If you like Obamacare, you will love ObamaNet. On February 26, the Federal Communications Commission will vote on a “net neutrality” proposal to regulate broadband networks as if they were telephone monopolies from the days when copper wire was high tech. Net neutrality? Let’s call it net brutality. Like ObamaCare, ObamaNet would impose complex rules via Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. Once ObamaNet ropes ISPs into Title II, they would need FCC approval for new products, business models, data-traffic operations, and more. Rather than focus on inventions and improvements, Silicon Valley executives would have to machete their way through Title II’s 682 pages and 987 rule sections. According to the National Cable & Telecommunications Association, the FCC makes the average applicant wait 372 days for an answer. Since 1996, about 69% of such requests have failed, at least partially. Like ObamaCare, ObamaNet would, for the first time, attach billions of dollars in fees to the Internet service, just like they are to telephone service. Give Obama this: Though unaffordable, gargantuan, and tyrannical, ObamaCare does address a legitimate challenge: Insuring Americans who lack health coverage. One cannot say this about ObamaNet. Obama claims that evil ISPs are delaying faster connections and denying consumers access to their speediest networks. Obama really should try to escape his socialist bubble. More than 90% of American households are served by connections capable of neck-snapping speeds of 100 megabits per second. The once-gleaming “Digital Divide” now rusts in the Left’s political-slogan junkyard. ObamaNet is a monstrous “solution” desperately seeking a problem, and the Internet is not broken, so Obama should stop trying to “fix” it.

President Obama hosted a “Confronting Violent Extremism” summit, where it was against the rules to mention the common denominator in the horrific violence it is meant to discuss, Islamic extremism. When speaking on the Paris attack on a Kosher deli, Obama dismissed it saying, “it is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.” Apparently, the targeting of a Jewish deli by violent extremists who happen to be followers of Mohammed, has been downgraded to a random shooting of a bunch of folks. The State Department spokesperson declared that violent extremism can be solved through a jobs program to get these at-risk purveyors of horror off the streets of whatever country they are scourging. This is no surprise since it was the Obama administration that declared the murder of servicemen at Fort Hood by an Islamic extremist to be “workplace violence.” It was President Obama who created a moral equivalency between the Crusades of the Middle Ages that eventually repelled the spread of Islam through the scimitar throughout Europe with modern Islamic extremist violence. It is with this deliberate head-in-the-sand mindset that President Obama enters into his summit on violent extremism, looking desperately to create a moral equivalency to justify his Administration’s political focus on targeting domestic conservative and Jewish groups, limiting First Amendment freedom and calling out Christians as extremists for opposing homosexual marriage. In Obama’s world, refusing to bake a cake for a gay marriage seems to be more of an outrage than the mass slaughter of people of differing beliefs by Islamic extremists. In President Obama’s world, you dare not mention the common Islamic denominator between the various mass-murdering armies spreading across at least two continents, lest you stir up hate against all Muslims. In his world, it is dangerous to discuss the Islamic influences that lead to violent extremism because the unavoidable truth once honest discourse begins is that there is an active debate within Islam about whether violence against infidels (the rest of us) should be the norm or should be condemned. The evidence of this evil can be heard from the jungles of Africa to the deserts of Iraq, it can be heard in India and in Paris, but the one place it won’t be heard is at President Obama’s “Confronting Violent Extremism” summit.
