Well, I don’t think even Ripley would believe this load of cra* that Obama’s administration is hoisting upon the American public.
Below is an article from the Spokane Examiner, isn’t it amazing how you never hear about the Obama administration trying to rip our rights away on major publications or major news networks?

“I’ve never said a prayer in my life that didn’t end with Jesus Christ,” said the Rev. Scott Rainey, left, who’s shown with Erin Leu, attorney for Liberty Institute.

Federal judge overrules Obama VA, says pastor can pray in the name of Jesus
By Joe Newby, Spokane Conservative Examiner
..

One would expect to hear a Christian pastor pray in the name of Jesus at a cemetery on Memorial Day.

That’s what Pastor Scott Rainey of Houston’s Living Word Church of the Nazarene has done for the last two years. This year, however, he was ordered not to by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Houston National Cemetery.

After being asked to submit his prayer in writing before the service, the pastor was told by cemetery director Arleen Ocasio he could not pray unless he edited the text and removed the name “Jesus.”

The prayer concluded with “in the name of Jesus Christ, the risen Lord.”

“Our national cemeteries are places for all veterans of all beliefs,” Ocasio wrote. “We cannot be exclusive at a ceremony meant to be inclusive for all our nation’s veterans.”

Attorney Geoff Berg supported Ocasio’s position, calling it “the American way.” “This is a country without a specific religion,” he told My Fox Houston.

But a federal judge stepped in and the pastor was allowed to give his prayer.

According to Fox News:

U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes issued the order preventing the Dept. of Veterans Affairs and the Houston National Cemetery from ordering Pastor Scott Rainey to remove the name of Jesus from his prayer. The judge ruled that such censorship violated the First Amendment.

The First Amendment reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Jeff Mateer of the Liberty Institute represented Rainey, and called the action by the VA ‘government censorship.’

“Our veterans fought and many died for our religious freedom and to have it stripped away under the façade of inclusiveness is the height of offense to those who have served our country,” he said.

Jared Woodfill, Chairman of the Harris county Republican Party, called the move “religious persecution” by “the wild-eyed left.” Woodfill writes:

Respected Houston Pastor Scott Rainey, who has delivered invocations before the Texas State House of Representatives, the Harris County Commissioners Court, and for the past two years, at the Houston National Cemetery’s Memorial Day Ceremony, was denied the permission to pray according to his faith.

Woodfill’s harshest criticism was directed at the Obama administration:

The Obama Administration is trying to socialize the American economy and now they’re also coming after our religious liberty.

Liberty Institute attorney Erin Leu told Fox News Radio that Ocasio’s actions were clearly unconsitutional and issued a warning: “People should be very alarmed that the government was attempting to censor someone’s private religious prayer.”

For now, Pastor Rainey can continue to pray in the name of Jesus Christ – even in a National Cemetery.

“I have never said a prayer in my life where I didn’t end it by saying ‘in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray, amen,’” Rainey told My Fox Houston.

There are many amongst supposed evangelicals who are wild about Obama. Amazingly enough 25% of those claiming to be Evangelicals voted for him in the last election.
Obama still has links to Socialist/Communist organizations. The US Communist Party just threw their hat in the ring for Obama 2012. He has links with Bill Ayers, a known US Terrorist and bomber. He has had links with the violent Black Panther Party via his former advisor Van Jones.
He has countenanced his former Pastor who is as evil and filled with white hate as anyone can be and friends with Louis Farrakhan who has said all sorts of nasty things about everyone, including his fellow African Americans.
Some of my fond memories of Louis are the following comments:

White people are potential humans…they haven’t evolved yet.”
Philadelphia Inquirer, 3/18/00

According to a journalist’s account, “Farrakhan called ‘the white man’ the ‘anti-Christ’ to rousing applause.”
Jackson, MS, 9/19/97, Clarion-Ledger, 9/21/97

I won’t insult the intelligence of the reader by printing any more of his trash.

The man who was somehow elected to the Whitehouse despite so many moral reasons and some legal reasons why he should not have been, is a man who supports the tearing down of our nation, has insulted our nation and has allowed Trillions of dollars to be wasted, in fact if we as citizens did what the liberals have done to our nations money I’d be shot as a traitor.

No one cares, the press sits silent as Obama and his fellow Socialist’s rape our nation. Far too many Pastor’s sit idly by an say nothing.

But there is at least one pastor who gets it and is willing to speak the truth.
Below is an excerpt from a Sunday morning sermon from a Pastor somewhere in the South, in the former Bible Belt.

Genesis 47:13-27

RECENT VIRGINIA CHURCHSERVICE – STIMULUS SERMON

I would love to give the Pastor of this predominantly black church in Virginia a hug and a high five. This guy is obviously a leader.

Perhaps we should each decide who our real leader is. It is amazing to see that very little has changed in 4,000 years.

—————————————————

Good morning, brothers and sisters; it’s always a delight to see the pews crowded on Sunday morning, and so eager to get into God’s Word. Turn with me in your Bibles, if you will to the 47th chapter of Genesis, we’ll begin our reading at verse 13, and go through verse 27.

Brother Ray, would you stand and read that great passage for us? ….. (reading)
(Read along by clicking on http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genisis%2047:13-27&version=KJV )

Thank you for that fine reading, Brother Ray. So we see that economic hard times fell upon Egypt, and the people turned to the government of Pharaoh to deal with this for them. And Pharaoh nationalized the grain harvest, and placed the grain in great storehouses that he had built. So the people brought their money to Pharaoh, like a great tax increase, and gave it all to him willingly in return for grain. And this went on until their money ran out, and they were hungry again.

So when they went to Pharaoh after that, they brought their livestock – their cattle, their horses, their sheep, and their donkey – to barter for grain, and verse 17 says that only took them through the end of that year.

But the famine wasn’t over, was it? So the next year, the people came before Pharaoh and admitted they had nothing left, except their land and their own lives. “There is nothing left in the sight of my lord but our bodies and our land. Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for food, and we with our land will be servants to Pharaoh.” So they surrendered their homes, their land, and their real estate to Pharaoh’s government, and then sold themselves into slavery to him, in return for grain.

What can we learn from this, brothers and sisters?

That turning to the government instead of to God to be our provider in hard times only leads to slavery? Yes. That the only reason government wants to be our provider is to also become our master? Yes.

But look how that passage ends, brothers and sisters! Thus Israel settled in the land of Egypt, in the land of Goshen. And they gained possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied greatly.” God provided for His people, just as He always has! They didn’t end up giving all their possessions to government, no, it says they gained possessions! But I also tell you a great truth today, and an ominous one.

We see the same thing happening today – the government today wants to “share the wealth” once again, to take it from us and redistribute it back to us. It wants to take control of healthcare, just as it has taken control of education, and ration it back to us, and when government rations it, then government decides who gets it, and how much, and what kind. And if we go along with it, and do it willingly, then we will wind up no differently than the people of Egypt did four thousand years ago – as slaves to the government, and as slaves to our leaders.

What Mr. Obama’s government is doing now is no different from what Pharaoh’s government did then, and it will end the same. And a lot of people like to call Mr. Obama a “Messiah,” don’t they? Is he a Messiah? A savior? Didn’t the Egyptians say, after Pharaoh made them his slaves, “You have saved our lives; may it please my lord, we will be servants to Pharaoh”? Well, I tell you this – I know the Messiah; the Messiah is a friend of mine; and Mr. OBAMA IS NO MESSIAH! No, brothers and sisters, if Mr. Obama is a character from the Bible, then he is Pharaoh. Bow with me in prayer, if you will…

Lord, You alone are worthy to be served, and we rely on You, and You alone. We confess that the government is not our deliverer, and never rightly will be. We read in the eighth chapter of 1 Samuel, when Samuel warned the people of what a ruler would do, where it says “And in that day you will cry outbecause of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, butthe LORD will not answer you in that day..”

And Lord, we acknowledge that day has come. We cry out to you because of the ruler that we have chosen for ourselves as a nation. Lord, we pray for this nation. We pray for revival, and we pray for deliverance from those who would be our masters. Give us hearts to seek You and hands to serve You, and protect Your people from the atrocities of Pharaoh’s government.

In God We Trust…

repeal obuma

get rid of obama and obamacare

Anyone else sick and tired of looking at this smug mug?

Obama is supposedly about standing up for the little guy. sure if you happen to be African American  or Hispanic, or a member of SEIU, or you are an executive on Wall Street or a major bank.
If, after reading this article from the AP you still aren’t ready to impeach Obama, and force the appeal of Obamacare…then you truly need to wake up and smell the crap this man is selling  as supposedly “good old wholesome American Baseball, Appliepie, and Chevrolet”.
There is some stinking, but it isn’t in Denmark anymore!
Let’s just say it like it is folks… The Emperor’s new clothes are a pile of rotting maggots, being held up by his psychophant Czar’s as they whisper in his ears how beautiful his clothes are.
This man is butchering the Constitution. He’s tried to take away our National Heritage by telling the Muslim Nation’s we are no longer a Christian Nation. He has given Billions of our tax dollars that we worked hard for to major Fortune 100,200, and 500 executives in the guise of a “STIMULUS” package, only to allow them for the second time now, to pay themelves multi million dollar salaries and bonuses while their employees are sitting out on the streets unemployed.
What most people are too seemingly ignorant of the facts to know, is everytime the news tells you that Obama has brought more people back to work in his administration… “see look at the unemployment facts to prove it.” What they aren’t telling you and nobody cares enough to notice, is that the reason why so many people have gone out of the ranks of the unemployed listings is because more and more of them are going into the ranks of the 99’rs who no longer are on the record books but are no less unemployed.
Millions of Americans have been seeking employment so long that they are no longer even listed in the ranks because they aren’t receiving unemployment any more, they are no longer listed as unemployed. They are the forgotten millions. Many of these millions are returning Veterans, whose country has literally forgotten them and left them homeless.
Shame on Obama, Shame on his administration, Shame on Congress,  Shame on Wall Street, Shame on America and shame on us for letting them get away with it.
Do you ever feel like NEO in the Matrix and no one is awake? Is there anyone awake in America?

Administration Approves Bailout Pay Packages
Friday, April 1, 2011 09:21 PM
By:
WASHINGTON (AP) — The four companies still receiving government bailout aid won’t be able to raise the amount of cash they pay out to their top executives this year, the administration’s pay czar has ruled.
The decisions, released late Friday, cover 2011 compensation for the top 25 executives at General Motors Co., Chrysler, American International Group Inc. and Ally Financial Inc., the former financing arm of GM. The rulings clear the way for millions of dollars in salary and bonuses to be paid out by companies that are still repay the billions in aid they received during the financial crisis from the government’s $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program.
While the companies can’t give cash raises, they are being allowed to boost the value of deferred stock awards to their executives. The Treasury Department defended that decision, saying it is in line with pay guidelines that it used to make compensation decisions in 2009 and 2010.
The government’s findings do not identify the executives by name but only by salary rankings.
The highest-paid executive at insurance giant AIG will total compensation of $10.5 million in 2011, including a $3 million salary, the largest of any of the pay packages approved Friday by the pay czar. AIG confirmed in a filing with regulators Friday that President and CEO Robert Benmosche’s pay will stand at $10.5 million this year, the same package he received in 2010.
GM’s highest-paid executive will receive $1.7 million in salary for 2011 and performance-based stock awards that will bring total compensation to $9 million. The highest-paid executive at Ally Financial will receive no cash salary in 2011 but can be granted performance-based stock awards worth $9.5 million. GM is headed by Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson, and Ally’s CEO is Michael Carpenter.
AIG nearly went under during the 2008 financial crisis. It had written insurance on the value of hundreds of billions in mortgage investments held by financial institutions. When the investments lost value, AIG could not afford to make good on its contracts. It took government help to stay out of bankruptcy and received a bailout package with a total value of $182 billion. The government got a 92 percent stake in the company and hopes to start selling the shares soon to help recoup its money. The company also has been selling off assets to repay the aid.
Taxpayers provided a total of $49.5 billion to GM as it went through a bankruptcy reorganization in 2009. The Treasury Department has trimmed its stake in GM to 26.5 percent of the company from 61 percent, when it sold $23.1 billion of GM stock at an initial public offering in November. Treasury will need to sell its remaining GM shares at an average price of $53 to break even on the bailout.
Ally, which is 74 percent owned by the government, announced this week that it is preparing an initial public stock offering as a way to repay a portion of the $17.2 billion in aid it received.
The highest-paid executive at Chrysler, Sergio Marchionne, who is head of both Chrysler and Italy’s Fiat, is not affected by the pay restrictions because he receives his salary from Fiat. The pay czar’s filing showed that the second-highest paid executive at Chrysler will receive $500,000 in cash salary this year and total compensation of $1.18 million.
The compensation decisions were announced by Patricia Geoghegan, who succeeded Kenneth Feinberg last September. Geoghegan, a tax and compensation lawyer, came to Treasury after retiring as a partner from the New York law firm of Cravath, Swaine and Moore.
Feinberg’s departure last fall ended a contentious 14-month career as pay czar in which critics contended he had not done enough to reign in excessive salaries and bonuses at companies rescued by billions of dollars of taxpayer support. Feinberg now oversees a $20 billion fund created by BP PLC to compensate victims of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Feinberg argued that his efforts had laid the foundation for a new compensation system based on longterm performance.
In a final report, Feinberg recommended that future compensation decisions should place limits on guaranteed cash payments and require that pay packages have a significant performance component.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, one of Feinberg’s most vocal critics, contended that Feinberg had not been tough enough in cracking down on the pay excesses on Wall Street that had contributed to the financial crisis by encouraging excessive risk-taking.
