Recognizing Spiritual Delusion

While checking my stats this morning, I noticed that a visitor came to this blog to read a post that I did way back in 2007.  The visitor typed, "end days will bring about a spirit of spiritual delusion" into the Bing search engine, and my blog post appeared on the second page.

Thought that I would re-post here today.  People are under the influence of all kinds of delusions these days.  They include emotional delusions, mental delusions, educational delusions, physical delusions, sexual practice delusions, and even political delusions.   But spiritual delusion is the most dangerous.

Why?

Because once someone is under a spiritual delusion, many of the other delusions also enter in and wreak havoc upon their lives!

Read the post and find out for yourself!

Recognizing Spiritual Delusion

When it comes to studying and understanding the "shadow of coming events" predicted and prophesied in the Bible, no one does a better, more accurate job of communicating exactly what Scripture reveals than Dr. Ed Hindson. If you go to that website and read his impressive resume', you will, without a doubt, see how knowledgeable he is regarding end times events, Scriptural truth, and biblical prophecy.

One chapter, in Dr. Hindson's book Antichrist Rising, has stood out in my mind over the past few days. It is the chapter called, "Rise of False Prophets." The Bible informs us that false prophets and teachers have always been with us. Knowing God's Word is essential to being able to spot them. We are warned, however, that as the end times draw closer and closer, there will be a rise of false prophets in the world. So, how do we recognize them and most importantly, avoid being caught up in their deception?

According to the Old Testament (OT), we are told that true prophets of God must do three things in order to be considered genuine:

1. must speak in the name of the Lord, not some other god.

2. must have a message that is in accord with God's revealed truth in Scripture.

3. must give predictions of future events that come true exactly as stated.

Ed Hindson writes:






One of the most scathing denunciations of false prophets in all of Scripture is delivered by the prophet Jeremiah. In his time, Jeremiah had to deal constantly with false prophets who opposed his ministry, contradicted his message, and even conspired to have him killed. They kept telling the leaders of Jerusalem that the people had nothing to fear from the Babylonian invaders, but Jeremiah knew differently. Jerusalem was on the verge of destruction, and the people were about to be taken into captivity for 70 years.

"My heart is broken within me," Jeremiah confesses in his agony over these false prophets who "...follow an evil course and use their power unjustly" (Jeremiah 23:9,10). "Both prophet and priest are godless," the Lord responds (23:11). Then He tells Jeremiah His opinion of these false prophets:

Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD (verse 16).

I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied (verse 21).

I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in my name. They say, "I had a dream! I had a dream!" How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds? (verse 25)

Yes...I am against the prophets who wag their own tongues....Indeed, I am against those who prophesy false dreams....Because every man's own word becomes his oracle and so you distort the words of the living God, the LORD Almighty, our God (verses 31, 32, 36).

Jeremiah could not make his complaint any clearer or his case any stronger. God is against those false prophets whose spiritual delusion causes them to invent their own message apart from God's truth. The Bible presents these people in seven categories...


Before I post those categories, I want to mention a few things that are crucial to this message.

In OT times, the Holy Spirit of God would "come, minister, and then depart from" the prophets of old. Any basic study of the Bible would bear this fact out. The fact that God is depicted as "being with a prophet or person," but then "leaving that prophet or person" shows this to be true. He is often called, "The Spirit of God" for "The Spirit of the LORD." For example:






Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Jdg 3:10 And the Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war: and the LORD delivered Chushanrishathaim king of Mesopotamia into his hand; and his hand prevailed against Chushanrishathaim.


Today, the Holy Spirit works both outside, in the world to influence the unsaved towards repentance and acceptance of Christ as Lord and Savior; as well as inside each saved believer. When a person is born-again (see John 3) , the Holy Spirit resides within the hearts of those believers. According to the Bible, Jesus told us that on the day of Pentecost, He would send a Helper for the disciples (and for us today as well):






Luk 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall [your] heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?


Notice that Jesus mentions we must ask for the Holy Spirit to indwell us. After repentance of our sins, we ask Jesus Christ into our hearts and he resides there in the form of the Holy Spirit. Jesus refers to Him as "another Comforter."







Jhn 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;



Jhn 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.


Jhn 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:



Jhn 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

When Jesus was here, physically on earth during his 3 year ministry, he could only be present in one place at a time. After defeating evil, sin and death on the cross for the sins of the world, and His subsequent resurrection to life, he ascended to the Father and now resides at the right hand of the Father in heaven. The Comforter (Holy Spirit) can be in all places at all times and thus indwells each believer in Christ.

We are then promised that He will never leave nor forsake us.






Hbr 13:5 [Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.


This is why, no matter what happens to us on this earth, we can have the peace that surpasses all understanding precisely because we belong to Jesus! We can have absolute faith in Him! He's such an awesome Savior and Lord!

Now, back to the topic of this post.

I left off just before sharing the seven categories that false prophets and teachers can fall into:

Hindson:





1. Self-deceived. Some false teachers may be sincere, but they are still wrong. They have deceived themselves into believing their messages are true. As Jeremiah points out, their messages come psychologically from within their own minds and are not from God.
This is why I have stressed the point that the Holy Spirit of God will not lead you into thinking that contradicts Scripture! The "messages" may come "psychologically" from within one's own mind, (or, even worse from demons), but they are not from God if it contradicts God's Word!

Hindson:





2. Liars. Some false prophets are deliberate liars who have no intention of telling the truth. The apostle John says, "Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the anti-christ - he denies the Father and the Son" (1 John 2:22).


Now, admittedly, deliberate liars are easier to spot. However, sometimes the lie is so subtle, that even Christians can be fooled if they don't have a firm foundation in the truth of the Bible. Notice in Ed Hindson's second definition of a true prophet, he states:






2. [A true prophet] must have a message that is in accord with God's revealed truth in Scripture.


God's revealed truth in Scripture is the operative phrase. Anyone can read, study and even teach from the Bible. But if their ideology does not match up with God's revealed truth in the Scriptures, then beware! You may be led astray from a false teacher!
Hindson:





3. Heretics. These are those who preach heresy (false doctrine) and divide the church. Of them John said, "They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us" (1 John 2:19). The apostle Peter said, "There will be false teachers among you. they will secretly introduce destructive heresies....These men blaspheme in matters they do not understand" (2 Peter 2:1, 12).


The phrase, "blaspheme in matters they do not understand" could refer to those under delusion and/or deception. We can all recall several examples of blatantly obvious heretical movements. The Jim Jones cult, the Heaven's Gate group, and David Koresh. However, there are more subtle groups that would qualify as being called "heretical."

Hindson:





4. Blasphemers. Those who speak evil of God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, the people of God, the kingdom of God, and the attributes of God are called blasphemers. Jude calls them godless men who "speak abusively against whatever they do not understand....They are clouds without rain...trees, without fruit....They are wild waves of the sea...wandering stars" (Jude 10,12,13).

We even have a recent example of these types of people! Look no further than This debate between the "Rational Response Squad" and two Christian evangelists.

However, some examples of "blasphemers" are not always as obvious as the atheists who participated in that debate. The ability to subtly "speak abusively against whatever they do not understand." can apply to false converts, as well. They are often referred to as "sheep in wolves clothing."

Hindson:





6. Seducers. Jesus warned that some false prophets will appear with miraculous signs and wonders to seduce or deceive the very elect, "if that were possible" (Mark 13:22). Our Lord's implication is that spiritual seduction is a very real threat even to believers. This would account for the fact that a few genuine but deceived believers may be found among the cults.

Did you catch that? It bears repeating:

A few genuine but deceived believers may be found among the cults!

Now, I am often accused by gay theology proponents of "being judgmental," or "displaying hate," or "not being willing to discuss our differences," or "not living in harmony with," or "not being willing to accept that which they are preaching," or "not being willing to compromise," etc. I could go on and on, (as one well-known blog is named).

But now, we have an example of someone in the gay christian movement who demonstrates, through his own words, his unwillingness to compromise. Besides, it is not written in the Bible anywhere that we should compromise on any issue regarding the Gospel of Christ!

Here's Mel White's "gospel":






“I will sit down with anyone who comes to the table with certain basic positive assumptions about us: that we are here, millions of us, and have the right to be; that our sexual orientation, too, is a gift from our Creator who is pleased when we accept the gift with gratitude and pride; that on average we live productive and responsible lives; that we are perfectly capable of loving, committed relationships and are as equipped as heterosexuals to have families of our own; that uncounted millions of us are people of faith who serve our faith communities with creativity and commitment and patriotic Americans who serve our nation with courage and with honor; that we don’t seek “special rights” just the rights and protections guaranteed all Americans by the Constitution. Our dignity, our integrity, our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, our unqualified acceptance by our Creator are not up for debate.”


Gcmwatch quote:






Our bold. What is there to discuss, when he demands 100% concession from us?


Can you see, now, why groups like the "Equality Riders" cannot possibly reconcile with Bible-based Christian believers? Their leader unequivocally states that in order for us to do so, it would require 100% concession (a.k.a. compromise) to his ideology.

It ain't gonna happen...people.

Why? Because there will always be a remnant of the faithful who will never compromise God's Word! That's why!

Hindson:





7. Reprobates. This term means "disapproved," "depraved," or "rejected." Paul refers to those who have rejected the truth of God and turned to spiritual darkness. Consequently, God has given them over to a "reprobate mind" (Romans 1:28 KJV). They have so deliberately rejected God that they have become "filled with every kind of wickedness" (verse 29). As a result, they are "God-haters" (verse 30), whose behavior is "senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless" (verse 31). These people are so far gone spiritually that they know it and don't care. In Jesus' own prophetic message, the Olivette Discourse, He warned, "Watch out that no one deceives you....Many will turn away from the faith....And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people....For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles" (Matthew 24:4, 10, 11,24). Our Lord warned His disciples of the possibility of spiritual seduction by false prophets.


There are different levels of re probation going on out there. From the most severe kinds of re probation to the more subtle, and perceived "harmless" type like Mel White's Equality Riders.

Hindson writes:






The Bible describes Satan as the "father of lies" (John 8:44) and pictures him as the ultimate deceiver. His name means "accuser," and he is depicted as the accuser of God and His people (Revelation 12:10). he is opposed to God and seeks to alienate people from the truth. He misled the fallen angels (Revelation 12:3,4). He tempts men and women to sin against God's laws (Genesis 3:1-13; 1 Timothy 6:9). He denies and rejects the truth of God and deceives those who perish without God (2 Thessalonians 2:10). Ultimately, he inspires the false prophets and the very spirit of Antichrist (1 John 2:18-23).

The Bible clearly warns us that in the last days people will "abandon the faith and follow deceiving ['seducing,' KJV] spirits and things ['doctrine,' KJV] taught by demons" (1 Timothy 4:1). These false teachings will come through hypocritical liars whose minds have been captured by Satan's lies (1 Timothy 4:2). Thus, the process of spiritual deception is clearly outlined in Scripture:

1. Satan - Father of lies
2. Demons - Doctrines of Devils
3. False Teachers - Messengers of Deceit

The term angel (Greek angelos) means "messenger." God's angels are His divine messengers (Hebrews 1:14; Revelation 1:1), and His true prophets and preachers are called the angels of the churches (Revelation 2:1, 8, 12, 18; 3:1, 7, 14). By contrast, Satan is pictured as a fallen angel, the leader of other fallen angels, who deceives the world (Revelation 12:9). He is revealed as the ultimate power behind the Antichrist and the False Prophet who deceives mankind with false religion (Revelation 13:14, 15). Thus, the messengers (angels) of deceit are Satan-inspired false prophets and teachers whose messages are the very spirit of Antichrist.

A century ago, A.T. Pierson, the Bible teacher who often spoke for Charles Spurgeon at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London, wrote,

"Evil spirits acquire their greatest power from their subtlety. They are masters of the art of deception, and aim to counterfeit that which is good rather than suggest what is obviously and wholly evil."


A learned and spiritually mature Christian friend of mine, Susan Smith, once said something that was quite simple, but extremely profound!

She wrote something like this (paraphrased):






"The greatest deception is not believing that we can be deceived."


So, as Christian believers, how can we be guaranteed not to fall into deception?

1. The first step, of course, is through repentance for all sin and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior over our lives.

2. The second step is to read and study Scripture; but the most important point in this second step is what Dr. Hindson stated, "we must have a message that is in accord with God's revealed truth in Scripture."

3. This leads to the third step. It is knowing and recognizing, the seven categories (discussed above), and types of people that could lead one into spiritual deception and delusion.


Hindson shares why we must be spiritually discerning:






The lure of false doctrine is that it presents itself as the truth. It appears as a corrective measure to established doctrine. It is propagated by those who are certain they have discovered some new revelation of truth or a better interpretation of old, established truth. Either way, they are convinced they are right and everyone else is wrong.

This is Satan's oldest trick. He appeals to our self-conceit and leads us into self-deceit. When he first approached Eve, Satan questioned the integrity of God's command and appealed to her selfish desire to be like God - the same desire that led to his own fall. And there is something selfish enough in all of us to want to believe that we can know what no one else knows. C.S. Lewis said,

"What Satan put into the heads of our remote ancestors was the idea that they could "be like gods."...Out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we can call human history...the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy."


Today, the seduction is even more subtle than Hindson states here (IMHO). We could take one line from above and add to it:

"Either way, they are convinced they are right and everyone else is "intolerant," or "hateful," or "uncompromising," or "out of harmony with," or, as Mel White stated above regarding his non-biblical view that 'that our sexual orientation, too, is a gift from our Creator who is pleased when we accept the gift with gratitude and pride,' and 'our unqualified acceptance by our Creator are not up for debate.' "

In the second post on this topic, I will cover warnings that once spiritual deception sets in, it leads, ultimately, to spiritual darkness.

Some thoughts to preview:

1. Pride and arrogance are the sins that lead a person to become spiritually deceived.
2. Satan tempts us with our own self-centeredness and lures us into spiritual darkness with the bait of our own pride. The Bible calls this the "pride of life" (1 John 2:16 KJV).
3. Having been hooked by our arrogance, we are reeled in by our ignorance.

I know. All of this is so devastating and heart-breaking to read. However, there is hope!! It is found in none other than Jesus Christ and His Word, the Bible. Anyone can come out of spiritual deception and darkness! It's happening every single day!!
I sincerely believe that some people just don't even realize that they are being deceived. Others, however, know it full well. But for those who may be currently studying under any number of 'sincere' preachers who have gotten off the theological track because they don't know enough theology to realize their errors, you can give them a "test" to see if they are worthy to be in the mission of preaching the Gospel message of Christ.

Just ask them if they are willing to be checked, according to the absolute truth of God's Word, on the accuracy of a certain doctrine, point, sermon or message that they have preached.

As my pastor has told us several times, he is only human and can make mistakes. That is why our "plumb line" to stay on track when it comes to sharing the gospel and God's Word, is to stay true to it (utilizing the proper apologetics tools of exegesis, hermeneutics, Sola Scriptura, and Scripture interprets Scripture), to the best of our ability.

If a preacher or leader says that they are not willing to do this, (and/or are also not willing to back up what they have said with Scripture) that could be a good indication that they may be in danger of being off of the proper theological track.

Bottom line? My faith has to be anchored in the truth if it is going to do me, and others, any good. The same is true for you!

In the next section, Hindson mentions that "once theological error falls into 'ecclesiastical cement' it is virtually impossible to eliminate it."

Once a false doctrine is accepted, it can be organized and perpetuated by a religious body, then perpetrated by a false defense (apologetic) which is based upon a false premise. It is then when we see such groups fall down that slippery slope as they accept false doctrine [no matter how much biblical Scriptural truth has been shown to them and has exposed their error(s)] as their "new truth." They can organize it, categorize it, debate it, systemize it, teach it, and/or demand it; but that doesn't make it true!!

When it comes to false teachers, the real problem is that the love of their own, skewed, erroneous teaching may drive them to the point where they will refuse to repent of it, even when their error is exposed!

The Bible says, "They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts" (Ephesians 4:18).

Something To Strive For

I have made it a habit to record most of the shows that I watch in order to keep up on the latest news.  That way I can fast forward whenever Obama is mentioned (or droning on about the same propagandist rhetoric) or when a liberal is ranting on and on about insignificant things.  Using the DVR prevents wasted time and brings forth the joy of not having to listen to all of the commercials.  Today on The Five, Greg Gutfeld said something that I found quite amusing!  He was commenting on the latest Lindsey Lohan scandal and the strange idea to have Lohan as a "motivational speaker" for young girls, and suggested that Lindsey and Dana (Perino - one of the co-hosts of the show) should do their own reality show.  Then he added:

"It would be like Goofus and Gallant from the Highlights magazine."

I don't even know if that magazine is still in circulation, but I remember reading it as a kid while sitting in the waiting room for my dental and doctor appointments.  That magazine was always there!

Well, according to a Chicago Tribune article, Highlights magazine celebrated it's 60th year back in 2006.

Getting back to Gutfeld's point.

In today's world, individuals like the very troubled Lindsey Lohan are a far cry from anything that Goofus (the "bad" guy) ever did in those magazine stories. And, as the author of the Chicago Tribune article points out:

"We couldn't have Gallant without Goofus," said Highlights Editor Kent Brown, a grandson of the founders and, he proudly claims, the inspiration for Goofus. "Without Goofus, Gallant would be bland and no one would pay attention. But kids see parts of themselves in both characters. No one is as good as Gallant, and no one is as bad as Goofus. But being more like Gallant is something to strive for."
 
Dana Perino represents one of the best of her generation.  She is more like the "Gallant"  character  and should be commended for living a life of integrity, honesty, civility, wisdom, knowledge and unapologetic conservatism; even though some have mocked her for being on Fox News and others have verbally attacked her relentlessly when she worked for the Bush Administration.

Someone else who recently made headlines after his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast also fits in with the Gallant character quite well -  Dr. Benjamin Carson. If you are one of ten people here in America who hasn't heard about him yet or witnessed and listened to his great speech, here is a link to a previous post where you can enjoy what he shared.  The video has gone viral!

Talk Wisdom: Dr. Benjamin Carson’s Amazing Speech at National Prayer Breakfast [VIDEO]

"Something to strive for."  

That's great advice for today's youth.  BE SOMEONE who shows that he or she has the demeanor, goals, aspiration and capabilities necessary in order to have something to strive for.  Be the kind of good person that others will look up to and be that "someone" that others should strive to emulate.

Phillips, Craig & Dean - Great I Am (Lyrics)

I love this worship song!!  Heard it last night on Sirius XM's The Message channel while driving home from the grocery store.  The lyrics are so awesome and confirms God's love, promises and eternal life for His own!

~  Christine



"Great I Am"
I want to be close, close to Your side
So Heaven is real and death is a lie
I want to hear voices of angels above
Singing as one

[CHORUS]
Hallelujah, holy, holy
God Almighty, the great I AM
Who is worthy, none beside Thee
God Almighty, the great I AM

I want to be near, near to Your heart
Loving the world and hating the dark
I want to see dry bones living again
Singing as one

[CHORUS]

The mountains shake before You, the demons run in fear
At the mention of the name King of Majesty
There is no power in hell
Or any who can stand
Before the power and the presence of the great I AM

[CHORUS]
 
*******

Psa 90:2   Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God.

Psa 119:133   Direct my steps by Your word, And let no iniquity have dominion over me.

Bombshell Obama Vetting: 1979 Newspaper Article By Valerie Jarrett Father-In-Law Reveals Start Of Muslim Purchase Of U.S. Presidency

Sometimes, researchers can find articles from the past to help make sense of what is REALLY going on under the immediate radar of the American people!  However, when the proper research is done, what may seem sensational at first actually becomes logically disturbing (as is pointed out by Pat Dollard in article below) and "suddenly makes a lot of previously confusing things make perfect sense." 

The following article is copied in its entirety, because I want a record of it all here at Talk Wisdom.

 I refuse to post the photos here; especially the face of Ovomit (and that is NOT a strong enough name for the treasonous...well...what comes to mind?...you finish the sentence) or his backside bowing to a Saudi king!

Please spread this far and wide.  Apparently, this article was posted over 5 months ago!  However, this is the first time that I have seen it.  I have read various articles about this possibility before, but none of them put it all together like this one!

Hat tip to Commieblaster for including the link on their webpage which led me to both the Pat Dollard commentary and the original article at the Daily Interlake.com site!

~  Christine

*******

Copy of article posted at Pat Dollard's site:

Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students? Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency. And why would the Arabs target blacks in particular for this job? Well, for the same reason the early communists chose them as their vanguard for revolution (which literally means “change”) in America. Allow me to quote Trotsky, in 1939: “The American Negroes, for centuries the most oppressed section of American society and the most discriminated against, are potentially the most revolutionary element of the population. They are designated by their historical past to be, under adequate leadership, the very vanguard of the proletarian revolution.” Substitute the word “Islam” for the words “the proletarian revolution,” and you most clearly get the picture, as Islam is a revolutionary movement just like communism is. (Trivia: it is from this very quote that communist Van Jones takes his name. Van is short for vanguard. He was born “Anthony”). In addition, long before 1979, blacks had become the vanguard of the spread of Islam in America, especially in prisons.

Interestingly, in context with the fact that this article was written by her father-in-law, Valerie Jarrett has an unusual amount of influence over Obama (along with personal security that may be even better than his, another unusual and intriguing bit of business here). And equally interesting is that Obama, who may have been a beneficiary of this Muslim money, and may now be in this Muslim debt, has aggressively pursued both of the Muslim agendas I cited above. And, also equally interesting, is that Obama has paid a king’s ransom for court ordered seals of any such records of this potential financing of his college education, and perhaps, of other of his expenses.

Lastly, it’s very important to note that the main source for the article is Khalid Mansour, “the same lawyer who allegedly helped arrange for the entrance of Barack Obama into Harvard Law School in 1988.” (Valerie Jarrett, by the way, was born in Iran. The one country protected by Obama from the sweep of the Arab Spring.) Now all of this may seem sensational, but let’s face facts. What makes it most disturbing is that not only is it all logical, but it suddenly makes a lot of previously confusing things make perfect sense.Pat Dollard

Excerpted from Daily Interlake: Searching old newspapers is one of my favorite pastimes, and I have tried to use them many times to shed light on current events — or to inform readers about how the past is prologue to our very interesting present-day quandaries.

Recently, I came across a syndicated column from November 1979 that seemed to point 30 years into the future toward an obscure campaign issue that arose briefly in the 2008 presidential campaign.
Though by no means definitive, it provides an interesting insight, at least, into how Chicago politics intersected with the black power movement and Middle Eastern money at a certain point in time. Whether it has any greater relevance to the 2012 presidential campaign, I will allow the reader to decide. In order to accomplish that, I will also take the unusual step of providing footnotes and the end of this column so that each of you can do the investigative work for yourself.

The column itself had appeared in the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Evening Independent of Nov. 6, but it was the work of a veteran newspaperman who at the time was working for the prestigious Chicago Tribune and whose work was syndicated nationally. (1)
 
So far as I know, this 1979 column has not previously been brought to light, but it certainly should be because it broke some very interesting news about the “rumored billions of dollars the oil-rich Arab nations are supposed to unload on American black leaders and minority institutions.” The columnist quoted a black San Francisco lawyer who said, “It’s not just a rumor. Aid will come from some of the Arab states.”

Well, if anyone would know, it would have been this lawyer — Donald Warden, who had helped defend OPEC in an antitrust suit that year and had developed significant ties with the Saudi royal family since becoming a Muslim and taking the name Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour.
Al-Mansour told Jarrett that he had presented the “proposed special aid program to OPEC Secretary-General Rene Ortiz” in September 1979, and that “the first indications of Arab help to American blacks may be announced in December.” Maybe so, but I looked high and wide in newspapers in 1979 and 1980 for any other stories about this aid package funded by OPEC and never found it verified. (Continued after the jump)


You would think that a program to spend “$20 million per year for 10 years to aid 10,000 minority students each year, including blacks, Arabs, Hispanics, Asians and native Americans” would be referred to somewhere other than one obscure 1979 column, but I haven’t found any other word of it.

Maybe the funding materialized, maybe it didn’t, but what’s particularly noteworthy is that this black Islamic lawyer who “for several years [had] urged the rich Arab kingdoms to cultivate stronger ties to America’s blacks by supporting black businesses and black colleges and giving financial help to disadvantaged students” was also the same lawyer who allegedly helped arrange for the entrance of Barack Obama into Harvard Law School in 1988.

That tale had surfaced in 2008 when Barack Obama was a candidate for president and one of the leading black politicians in the country — Percy Sutton of New York — told an interviewer on a Manhattan TV news show that he had been introduced to Obama “by a friend who was raising money for him. The friend’s name is Dr. Khalid al-Mansour, from Texas. He is the principal adviser to one of the world’s richest men. He told me about Obama.” (2)

This peculiar revelation engendered a small hubbub in 2008, but was quickly dismissed by the Obama campaign as the ditherings of a senile old man. I don’t believe President Obama himself ever denied the story personally, and no one has explained how Sutton came up with this elaborate story about Khalid al-Mansour if it had no basis in fact, and in any case al-Mansour no longer denies it. (3)
Back in 2008, while actually supporting Hillary Clinton in the New York primary, Percy Sutton was interviewed on TV and said that he thought Barack Obama was nonetheless quite impressive. He also revealed that he had first heard about Obama 20 years previously in a letter where al-Mansour wrote, “there is a young man that has applied to Harvard. I know that you have a few friends up there because you used to go up there to speak. Would you please write a letter in support of him?”

Sutton concluded in the interview, “I wrote a letter of support of him to my friends at Harvard, saying to them I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I certainly hoped they would treat him kindly.”

Until now, there really has been no context within which to understand the Sutton story or to buttress it as a reliable account other than the reputation of Sutton himself as one of the top leaders of the black community in Manhattan — himself a noted attorney, businessman and politician. But the new discovery of the 1979 column that established Khalid al-Mansour’s interest in creating a fund to give “financial help to disadvantaged students” does provide a clue that he might indeed — along with his patron, Arab Prince Alwaleed bin Talal — have taken an interest in the “genius” Barack Obama.

It also might be considered more than coincidence that the author of that 1979 newspaper column was from Chicago, where Barack Obama settled in 1986 a few years after his stint at Columbia University. It is certainly surprising that the author of that column was none other than Vernon Jarrett, the future (and later former) father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett, who ultimately became the consigliatore of the Obama White House.

It is also noteworthy that Vernon Jarrett was one of the best friends and a colleague of Frank Marshall Davis, the former Chicago journalist and lifelong communist who moved to Hawaii in the late 1940s and years later befriended Stanley and Madelyn Dunham and their daughter Stanley Ann, the mother of Barack Obama. (4)

And to anyone who has the modicum of a spark of curiosity, it is surely intriguing that Frank Davis took an active role in the rearing of young Barack from the age of 10 until he turned 18 and left Hawaii for his first year of college at Occidental College in Los Angeles. (5)

It is also at least suggestive that Obama began that college education as a member of the highly international student body of Occidental College in 1979, the same year when Vernon Jarrett was touting the college aid program being funded by OPEC and possibly Prince Alwaleed. The fact that President Obama has studiously avoided releasing records of his college years is suggestive also, but has no evidentiary value in the present discussion. (6)

The nature of Vernon Jarrett’s relationship to Khalid al-Mansour is likewise uncertain, but it is very likely they had known each other as leaders of the black civil-rights movement for many years. Under his previous name of Donald Warden, al-Mansour had founded the African American Association in the Bay Area in the early 1960s. He had also helped inspire the Black Panther Party through his association with black-power leaders such as Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. Seale, of course, had a famous association with Chicago later, when he was part of the Chicago Eight charged with conspiracy and inciting to riot at the Democratic National Convention in 1968. (7)

In any case, it doesn’t matter if Vernon Jarrett and Khalid al-Mansour had a personal relationship or not. For some reason, al-Mansour had used Jarrett as the messenger to get out the word about his efforts to funnel Arab oil money to black students and minority colleges at about the same time that Barack Obama began his college career. That doesn’t mean either Jarrett or al-Mansour knew Obama at that time, but eight years later when Obama was a rising star in Chicago, a friend of Bill Ayers and Valerie Jarrett, it is much more likely that he did indeed have the assistance of very important people in his meteoric rise. The words of Percy Sutton about what al-Mansour told him regarding Obama certainly have the ring of truth:

“His introduction was there is a young man that has applied to Harvard. I know that you have a few friends back there… Would you please write a letter in support of him? (That’s before Obama decided to run.) … and he interjected the advice that Obama had passed the requirements, had taken and passed the requirements necessary to get into Harvard and become president of the Law Review. That’s before he ever ran for anything. And I wrote a letter in support of him to my friends at Harvard, saying to them that I thought there was a genius that was going to be available and I certainly hoped they would treat him kindly…” (2)

What possible significance could all this have? We may never know, but Vernon Jarrett, back in 1979, thought that OPEC’s intention to fund black and minority education would have huge political ramifications. As Jarrett wrote:

“The question of financial aid from the Arabs could raise a few extremely interesting questions both inside and outside the black community. If such contributions are large and sustained, the money angle may become secondary to the sociology and politics of such an occurrence.” (1)

He was, of course, right.

As Jarrett suggests, any black institutions and presumably individuals who became beholden to Arab money might be expected to continue the trend of American “new black advocacy for a homeland for the Palestinians” and presumably for other Islamic and Arabic interests in the Middle East. For that reason, if for no other, the question of how President Obama’s college education was funded is of considerably more than academic interest.

Day of Resistance: 200 – 250 People Protest Government Overreach in Joplin, MO
nicedeb at Nice Deb - 1 day ago

Due to a busy Saturday schedule, I wasn’t able to make it to the Day of Resistance rally in Joplin Mo, today, but I did have a chance to speak to the organizer, Jesse Mills, of the Southwest Missouri Firearms Freedom Coalition. He told me he was pleased with the turn out, estimating a crowd [...]

Gun-rights supporters gather at Old Poway Park on Saturday during the National Day of Resistance ral ��

 
Article:
 
— Several hundred people, mostly men, mostly older and almost universally conservative, descended on Old Poway Park Saturday afternoon to take part in a “Pro-Second Amendment” rally.
The local rally was part of a nationwide “Day of Resistance,” in opposition to recent gun-control legislation proposed and action taken in Washington, D.C. The Poway gathering was organized by conservative blogger Roger Cotton, who called it the “Shall Not Be Infringed” rally, echoing the last line of the Second Amendment.
 
“The focus of the rally is to serve as a call to action to citizens who value their individual liberties,” Cotton said.
 
The crowd was colorful and of like mind. Many wore messages on their T-shirts such as “Invest in Precious Metals – Buy Lead,” and “Freedom Requires a Truthful Press.”
 
Others carried signs bearing messages like “Victims who shoot back live longer,” and “The 2nd Amendment is the line in the sand,” and “Gun-free zones enable mass killings.”
 
“Don’t Tread on Me” flags were almost as common as Old Glory was.
 
Among those scheduled to speak during the three-hour rally were members of the San Diego chapter of the National Rifle Association, a conservative humorist and musician, and several conservative bloggers
.
“The problem is not firearms or their cartridges. The problem is a mental health issue,” said one early speaker, Julie Sutton, a blogger and humorist. “That’s what needs to be addressed. That, Mr. President, is what you should be focusing on.”
 
Sheriff’s deputies were present, but the gathering was peaceful. There was no opposition to cause trouble, and everyone obeyed the law and did not bring guns to the rally, officials said.
 
Last month, President Barack Obama urged Congress to require background checks for all gun sales and ban both military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines in a plea to curb gun violence in America.
 
Obama also signed 23 executive actions, including orders to make more federal data available for background checks and end a freeze on government research on gun violence.
 
The president’s actions came just a month after the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn., in which 26 people, including 20 children, were killed by a lone gunman armed with an assault rifle.
 
Even before Obama outlined his gun control plans, sales of weapons of all kinds skyrocketed among people fearing bans, which for the most part haven’t been proposed, that may limit their ability to purchase firearms in the future.
 
The National Day of Resistance was timed for Feb. 23 to reflect the 23 executive actions, according to the official website of the movement.
 
Cotton, who said he does not own any guns but believes in the Constitution, said he got the idea to stage the rally a few weeks ago after hearing one police chief say the disarming of America could be accomplished within a generation and another say the Second Amendment is a dangerous right.
“Since I was a kid, I’ve been in love with this country,” he said. “I don’t want anything to happen to it beyond what has already happened. I just decided to do this. It’s really just me getting fed up.”
Similar rallies occurred throughout the country Saturday.

As Obama signed 23 executive orders to “control gun violence” that impact citizen rights under the Second Amendment, supporters of gun ownership held hundreds of rallies across the country this Saturday (Feb. 23) to protest these rules. The theme for many was “Day of Resistance“; however, in San Diego, it was entitled “Shall Not Be [...]

Matt Bracken: Democide

In case you missed this very sobering video in my Day of Resistance post, I am sharing it again along with written commentary from Western Rifle Shooters Association blog.

If you care ANYTHING AT ALL about our freedoms here in America, then I urge you to watch the video, read the commentary written by Matt Bracken, and then share on your blog, website, forum, Face Book page etc. so that more people will be educated and informed regarding what is really at stake when ObaMARXIST and his ilk want to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of We The People; RIGHTS that are given to us under God first, and then under the Charters of Freedom that are guaranteed by our United States Constitution!!

Quote:

Spread this latest work by Matt Bracken and friends far and wide, especially the video:

Democide: Socialism, Tyranny, Guns and Freedom

Democide is the elimination of a despised group by a government. It includes genocide, politicide, and other forms of state-sponsored mass murder. The hated minority headed for extermination may be defined by religious, racial, political, class, cultural or other attributes. Between 200 and 260 million people were the victims of democide in the 20th century, several times more than were killed in international wars during that period.

The first widely studied modern democide occurred in Turkey between 1915 and 1923, when the Turkish government decided to eliminate the country’s Christian minority, primarily ethnic Armenians and Greeks who had Turkish roots extending back to before the Islamic conquest. Two million Christians were murdered on forced marches into deserts without water or food. This democide occurred in view of Western reporters, who took photographs and posted contemporary wire reports. The fact that the democide was known outside Turkey did not deter the Turkish leaders.
The Armenian Genocide, as it has become known, was also widely known inside Turkey, where the majority Muslim population either supported or at least passively tolerated the democide. It was impossible to miss the sight of thousands of Christians at a time being rounded up and force-marched through towns and into the burning deserts on one-way trips.

Stalin and Hitler both noticed the lack of world reaction to the democide of Turkish Christians and planned accordingly. In the Soviet Union, Stalin’s henchmen purged millions of “kulaks” (farmers deemed to have too much wealth), intellectuals, businessmen, and anyone who had ever traveled outside the USSR or even had had contact with foreigners.

In Germany and Nazi-occupied Europe, Hitler proceeded with his own “final solution to the Jewish problem.” Where the German national socialists simply eliminated Jews as quickly as possible in mass graves and gas chambers, Stalin’s international socialists deported their “class enemies” to Siberia, where they were put to work in Gulag slave-labor camps, with years of torture through cold, malnutrition and brutal working conditions preceding the release of eventual death.

Stalin also devised another means of democide when he ordered the forced starvation of the Ukrainians, and five million more innocent victims were added to his totals. In Communist China seventy million people were the victims of democide, murdered by overwork in slave-labor camps, by direct execution, and by regional forced starvation. Millions more were victims of democide in Pakistan, Cambodia, Rwanda, North Korea, and many other countries.

Democide, as the name implies, does not happen in the dark of night without any awareness of it in the country where it occurs. The Turks knew the Christians were being mass murdered. Average Germans were fully aware of what was happening to the Jews between 1938 and 1945, and a large majority either actively supported or at least tolerated it. (I strongly recommend reading Hitler’s Willing Executioners: Ordinary Germans and the Holocaust, by Daniel Goldhagen, to fully appreciate the wholehearted German support for the Jewish democide.)

Today, we sometimes hear that the Second Amendment has outlived its usefulness, that it is a relic of our barbaric past and is no longer needed in the modern era. Horrific mass shootings by deranged individuals are cited as the primary reason for Americans to surrender their most effective firearms and rely solely on a state monopoly of force for their protection. This government-dependent attitude is shortsighted, historically ignorant, and extremely dangerous.

In each of the cases cited above, a necessary preliminary step on the road to democide was the confiscation of privately owned firearms. In Turkey, “reasonable” gun control laws enacted in 1911 permitted the democide of two million Turkish Christians a few years later. In Germany, the “commonsense” 1928 gun control laws of the Weimar Republic preceded Hitler’s Holocaust by a decade.

The Weimar politicians did not intend for their gun control laws to lead to the slaughter of millions of people, but it is an historical fact that those gun control laws permitted the Nazis to carry out their Holocaust. How? By making it economically and militarily feasible to round up and mass murder entire towns without any significant resistance.

In fact, the Nazis quickly learned that they needed only a hundred ordinary military policemen to exterminate towns of a thousand Polish Jews in a single day. Contrast that fact with the Warsaw Ghetto uprising. If the Jews had not first been disarmed, using previous gun registration lists as a map for confiscation, the Holocaust would not have been possible.

Likewise in the Soviet Union and in every other case, democide was preceded by “reasonable and commonsense” firearms registration, followed eventually by gun confiscation and then by the extermination of a despised minority population.

During the past two centuries, while America has avoided tyranny, Turkey, Germany, Russia and the other nations mentioned above have spasmodically lurched between monarchs, democratically elected leaders, and often quite popular dictators, allowing them frequent opportunities to commit democide against their unwanted minorities.

The situation is fundamentally different in America, because we have a centuries-old tradition of private firearms ownership guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution. The Second Amendment does not “grant” us this right; it puts into writing our God-given natural right to effective self-defense, including armed defense against tyranny.

“Pure democracy” has been described as two wolves and a sheep voting on their dinner plans. The two wolves might see this election as an expression of their highest democratic values, but for the outnumbered sheep, pure democracy is highly problematic. On the other hand, a republic has been described as two wolves and a well-armed sheep voting on dinner plans. The well-armed sheep can veto the outcome of the dinner election simply by brandishing its firearm. The sheep has inherent rights as a sovereign individual, including the right to self-defense, a right that cannot be stripped away by a simple majority vote.

So, when a democratically elected American president speaks of “fundamentally transforming” his country, and of his need to act outside the constitutional framework, the population should be on guard. When that leader begins to push for strict new “commonsense and reasonable” gun control laws, including national firearms registration in the name of “public safety,” the citizenry should be on high alert.

Can any glib politician, pundit or ivory tower academic give us an ironclad guarantee that tyranny will never arise in the United States? Not even a popular tyranny, like those of Ataturk, Stalin, Hitler or Mao? Can anyone assure us that today’s “commonsense” gun registration lists will not be used for future gun confiscation? Of course not.

The future may be unknowable, but history is well understood, and American gun owners know and understand the history of democide in the 20th century. That is why they will never accede to what is currently portrayed in the predominantly left-wing mainstream media as “commonsense and reasonable” new gun control laws.

While American gun owners lament and regret the inescapable fact that deranged individuals in a free country may on rare occasions murder a dozen or a score of unarmed victims, they also understand that government democide murders by the million. And in every case, tyrants can conduct these democides only after disarming their unwanted minorities, rendering them helpless to resist murderous government pogroms.

American gun owners will never permit this historical pattern to be repeated in their country, because they understand that the government’s heavy hand will be kept in check only as long as they are armed. Ask yourself: Were the Armenians, the Jews or the kulaks treated better, or worse, after they were disarmed and rendered helpless by their oppressors, who thereafter held an absolute government monopoly on armed violence? The answer is too obvious to require elaboration.

Naive utopians and other “low-information voters” might not understand the historical pattern, and we don’t expect them to bother to learn it. Cynical and dishonest “progressives” who do understand the historical pattern cannot yet reveal their ultimate goal of creating a disarmed and helpless American citizenry. Nevertheless, millions of Americans understand their hidden aim with crystal clarity, seeing through the false sincerity of power-hungry leftist politicians who are actually Marxist wolves dressed in Democrat sheep’s clothing—for now.

But unless and until these secret Stalinists and sundry other “progressives” can figure out a way to disarm Americans, they cannot execute their historically standard final solution to the “reactionaries-standing-in-the-way-of-utopia” problem. And this is a thorny problem for them, because tens of millions of Americans, disbelieving their deceitful bromides, will stick to their guns no matter what.

Unlike the Armenians, Jews, kulaks and other exterminated peoples, Americans who support the Second Amendment will never be disarmed quietly by government edict prior to meekly boarding a train to a socialist “reeducation” camp. They will not be taken at government gunpoint on a one-way forced march into a desert or a Zyklon-B “delousing shower,” simply because they foolishly agreed to be disarmed by their future oppressors in the dubious name of “public safety.”

If American “progressives” truly intend to disarm the American people, they will have to do it the hard way, by taking their bullets first, one at a time. As the 300 Spartans announced to the vastly larger Persian army at Thermopylae, “Molon Labe!”

You want our guns? Then come and take them!

No registration—no confiscation—no extermination!

Freedom now, freedom forever!

Day of Resistance - Saturday, February 23, 2013




Breitbart.com/Big Government: Day of Resistance Coast to Coast Rallies Set To Challenge Obama Agenda

Excerpt:


Conservatives and Tea Partiers plan to reignite the flame of 2010 next Saturday at rallies in cities and towns across America. The event is titled the "Day of Resistance," and head organizer Dustin Stockton told Breitbart News that February 23 was picked as the date for several reasons.

“The first is one which I’ve been getting ruthlessly abused for and that is because the AR-15 caliber is .223,” Stockton said in a phone interview. “It’s also the day that we raised the flag in Iwo Jima and it’s also a Saturday, so people who work regular hours can also attend.”

More than 50,000 Americans have already signed up for 97 rallies in more than 30 states across the country. The rallies will focus on Second Amendment issues and President Barack Obama’s push for gun control, but they will also branch out into all aspects of oppressive big government.

“The main hook is Second Amendment defense and executive actions by Obama,” Stockton said. “At the same time, we feel like the GOP establishment argument on guns is that ‘this is all crazy talk, what you’re hearing doesn’t matter and they’re not going to actually come take your guns away.’”
Stockton claimed the average law-abiding gun owner believes the president is seriously pushing for gun control, among other left-wing policies, and cannot stand the establishment GOP’s unwillingness to fight back. However, guns are not the only issue that has conservatives upset: the gun control fight is a new launching pad for a bigger discussion, similar to how Obamacare sparked the Tea Party movement’s beginnings in 2009.

“We think that gives us an opportunity to talk about how Obamacare is affecting people’s personal privacy and all the other issues the Tea Party movement has to talk about,” Stockton said. “We’ll talk about over-regulation, bailouts, crony capitalism, Benghazi, Fast and Furious."

"Fast and Furious is a big one for me," Stockton explained. "When the top cop in the country is as crooked as Eric Holder, it really cements our argument that ‘yeah, you really need to not be counting on law enforcement for protection. You need to be taking personal responsibility.’”

Those interested in getting involved can either find a rally near them on the Day of Resistance website, or they can (through the end of this week) sign up to create their own event in their own town or city. “You have three options: You can sign up to attend, you can sign up to volunteer, or you can sign up to organize your own rally,” Stockton said.

Stockton has a Political Action Committee, Western Representation PAC, that is spending $25,000 from its cash reserves on the rallies in addition to money they have raised for the events; he said about $9,000 has come in thus far. TheTeaParty.net is sponsoring the events as well.

Via Matt Bracken, someone who connected the dots – (readers of this blog should know what I’m talking about) - created this unsettling video.
This video highlights the relationship between socialism, tyranny, the right to keep and bear arms and American freedom from 1776 until today.

Found a new website called Red Flag News today and added it to my blog roll.

While reading posts at the site, I ran across this bombshell:

Red Flag News.com: Treason, Fraud, and Obstruction of Justice within the Supreme Court of the United States?

Copy of post:


Clerks of the Supreme Court never forwarded to 5 out of 9 Justices one single page of pleadings regarding Obama Forged IDs & Eligibility, they also did not forward to any of the Justices the Supplemental Brief.   Demand for investigation forwarded to Congressman Goodlatte, Chair of the Judiciary Committee of Congress...

Read the letter demanding an investigation to Chairman of the Committee on Judiciary of the U.S. House of Representatives.
 
Is there anyone in America (except, of course, the liberal left lunatics who support Obummer and his radical ilk no matter what!!) who is not alarmed, appalled and disgusted about this obvious obstruction of justice???

Two comments there that help sum up exactly what (and why) President Abraham Lincoln warned us to watch out for the deliberate perversion of the Constitution by treasonous and evil elitists who might get into our government and suppress the truth (see the quote at the top of the page):

Comment #1:

Karol Hancock says:
Anyone can go to http://www.supremecourt.gov at the bottom of the screen, look for “contact us”, this will take you to a page with phone numbers, address and email. You can leave an email, which they will receive today when they come in. It would be easy to flood the email and phone calls. We as citizens of America are entitled to request that our highest court review the information and hold a hearing on the same, that has been presented by Orly Taitz, Our Constitution says our President must be a “natural born citizen”, which means 2 parents that are citizens. Anyone running for the office of President of the United States, must provide proof of citizenship with a valid birth certificate and legal documentation, Social Security Number, Drivers License, Selective Services Registration. It is a known public fact, that all of Obama’s papers are forgeries. His birth certificate from Kenya has been located, it is in England, however, Obama has paid again to have it sealed. The Supreme Court can demand this be opened and England will abide. We must exercise our Constitutional rights and request or demand that the Justices of our highest court, The Supreme Court follow the Constitution that they swore an oath to.

Comment #2:

gigiregnier says:
Orly Taitz’s, based on proof of his foreign birth, made it to the Supreme Court and there the clerks HID the records!!!!!!!!!! Call the Judiciary at 202-225-3951 , 9-6 eastern time, M-F

Why All The Secrecy...Barry? [Update]

So...Obama went golfing with Tiger Woods in Florida over the weekend and the media of mass deception cried FOUL because the Liar-in-Chief was off limits.

The Blaze: ‘Obama Is a Master at Limiting, Shaping and Manipulating Media Coverage’: The 10 Most Scathing Remarks From Politico’s Anti-Obama Media Column

Excerpt:


The Politico article is filled with plenty of shots at the president and administration that vowed to be the most transparent. So we’ve included 10 of the most scathing sections that capture just how icy the press relationship has become.
 
10. President Barack Obama is a master at limiting, shaping and manipulating media coverage of himself and his White House.
 
9. “The White House gets away with stuff I would never have dreamed of doing. When I talk to White House reporters now, they say it’s really tough to do business with people who don’t see the need to be cooperative.” — Former Bill Clinton Press Secretary Mike McCurry
 
8. The president has shut down interviews with many of the White House reporters who know the most and ask the toughest questions. Instead, he spends way more time talking directly to voters via friendly shows and media personalities. Why bother with The New York Times beat reporter when Obama can go on “The View”?
 
7. Obama boasted Thursday during a Google+ Hangout from the White House: “This is the most transparent administration in history.” The people who cover him day to day see it very differently.
 
6. “The way the president’s availability to the press has shrunk in the last two years is a disgrace,” said ABC News White House reporter Ann Compton, who has covered every president back to Gerald R. Ford. “The president’s day-to-day policy development — on immigration, on guns — is almost totally opaque to the reporters trying to do a responsible job of covering it. There are no readouts from big meetings he has with people from the outside, and many of them aren’t even on his schedule. This is different from every president I covered. This White House goes to extreme lengths to keep the press away.” [Emphasis added]
 
5. But something is different with this White House. Obama’s aides are better at using technology and exploiting the president’s “brand.” They are more disciplined about cracking down on staff that leak, or reporters who write things they don’t like. And they are obsessed with taking advantage of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and every other social media forums, not just for campaigns, but governing.
 
4. Conservatives assume a cozy relationship between this White House and the reporters who cover it. Wrong. Many reporters find Obama himself strangely fearful of talking with them and often aloof and cocky when he does. They find his staff needlessly stingy with information and thin-skinned about any tough coverage. He gets more-favorable-than-not coverage because many staffers are fearful of talking to reporters, even anonymously, and some reporters inevitably worry access or the chance of a presidential interview will decrease if they get in the face of this White House. ​[Emphasis added]
 
3. *The super-safe, softball interview is an Obama specialty. The kid glove interview of Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by Steve Kroft of CBS’s “60 Minutes” is simply the latest in a long line of these. Obama gives frequent interviews (an astonishing 674 in his first term, compared with 217 for President George W. Bush), but they are often with network anchors or local TV stations, and rarely with the reporters who cover the White House day to day.
 
2. * There’s the classic weekend document dump to avoid negative coverage. By our count, the White House has done this nearly two dozen times, and almost always to minimize attention to embarrassing or messy facts. “What you guys call a document dump, we call transparency,” the White House’s Earnest shot back. If that’s the case, the White House was exceptionally transparent during the Solyndra controversy, releasing details three times on a Friday.
 
1. * While White House officials deny it is intentional, this administration —like its predecessors — does some good old-fashioned bullying of reporters: making clear there will be no interviews, or even questions at press conferences, if aides are displeased with their coverage.

The insistence of "privacy" for Obama due to a golf outing with Tiger Woods raises a big question.
 

Why???

Why THIS trip???

So...is the media's slobbering love affair with Barack Hussein Obama (a.k.a Barry Soetoro, Harrison J. Bounell)  beginning to sour??

Why was Obama's "outing" (pun coming...) with Tiger Woods so secretive?  Besides the expensive golf lesson, maybe it had something to do with one philanderer meeting with another...except in Obama's case his philandering wasn't with another woman?

Barack Obama Vacations With Former “Body Man” Reggie Love…

Excerpt:
And the choice to vacation with a younger man without his wife around in West Palm Beach Florida, one of the most popular destinations in the country for gay couples, will only add to the rumors now once again swirling about the president.
 
 
Via The Weekly Standard blog: President Obama has returned to Washington, from his solo vacation. He finally talked with the press on the ride back.
Via the pool report:








AF1 wheels down Andrews at 7:45pm. POTUS came back to have a 10-minute off the record talk with pool at the end of the flight.
Reggie Love departed AF1 soon after POTUS, apparently a guest for the weekend.
Marine One wheels up 7:55 pm

But don't take my word for it. Hillbuzz (written by a gay blogger) has pages and pages of evidence.


If you don't read them all, just read this one.
