Whenever self-anointed arbiter of border etiquette Barack Obama awkwardly interjects Scripture into a speech, his disingenuous inner core is exposed. Recently, in defense of an unaddressed porous US border, the President attempted to add weight to his argument by introducing Bible verse into the discussion. Barack misconstrued Scripture so badly he compared illegal usurpers with ancient Hebrews enslaved in a foreign land whose escape from bondage required ten plagues and Moses parting the Red Sea.
To support a liberal stance on amnesty, Bible opportunist Barack misquoted the Book of Deuteronomy citing “moral imperative” and “a greater understanding from our faith.” In defense of officially pardoning illegal aliens and in an effort to cultivate guilt and project a false image of righteousness, Obama revealed a counterfeit identity by dragging out a Bible Bazooka and haphazardly shooting poorly-interpreted verse at those who oppose granting lawbreakers a reprieve.
In a more recent border debate, Obama requested Israel relinquish land to Ishmael. This time Obama supported the appeal by choosing to disregard Deuteronomy 30:5, which refers to Israel when it says: “The LORD your God will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it; and He will prosper you and multiply you more than your fathers.”
Although Obama attempts to prove otherwise, his Bible knowledge is clearly limited to specific, out-of-context verses scrolling by on the Teleprompter. Yet, when quoting Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals, a flow takes place that lacks the clumsiness of Barack misusing Scripture to lend validity to imprudent solutions to the U.S. border dispute.
Even Barack Obama is astute enough to realize that citing Scripture in a Middle East and North Africa speech would contradict the proposition of Israel surrendering God-given land to people who’ve vowed to push the Jewish nation into the sea. Instead, tucked within Obama’s proposal to core the apple of God’s eye lies a direct quote from a tactical primer promoting “realistic” radicalism.
Speaking from the State Department, self-appointed international border expert Barack Obama presented a “new chapter in American diplomacy” that includes advancing America’s values (as defined by Obama), as well as tried-and-true Obama-style change as it applies to the Israeli/Palestinian border dispute.
The President’s lengthy speech chronicled ongoing, rapid-fire adjustments presently coming about “Square by square, town by town, country by country,” in a portion of the world engulfed by a set of circumstances where “the people have risen up to demand their basic human rights,” in a manner strangely similar to the Saul Alinsky technique.
Speaking like a true community organizer, Obama said: “It’s not America that put people into the streets of Tunis or Cairo — it was the people themselves who launched these movements, and it’s the people themselves that must ultimately determine their outcome.”
In what sounded like the present state of affairs in America and Barack Obama’s Middle East rhetoric described an all too familiar “relentless tyranny…refusal to pay taxes to a king… power concentrated in the hands of a few” and “change that cannot be denied.”
Obama, who heartily sanctions the “slaughter of innocents…for a better life” in America, also argued that in the Middle East, “the slaughter of innocents [does] not answer [the people’s] cries for a better life.”
Slowly winding his way toward the borders of Israel, the President – broached “fresh air” in Cairo; the “end of night” in Sanaa; words of freedom in Bengazi; “dignity” in Damascus, and an expository review of the situation in Libya. Failing to provide details, Border Patrol President Obama warned, “We will not tolerate aggression across borders, and we will keep our commitments to friends and partners,” a pledge that came with a committed resolve to “change our approach” to avoid a “spiraling of division” between the US and the Arab world.
Then, in order to avoid further division, in a telling use of words Obama, clearly more familiar with Saul Alinsky than Saul of Tarsus, took Middle East cues not from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, but rather from Alinsky’s controversial handbook Rules for Radicals.
Alinsky tenets maintain that: “The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be.“ Based on the President’s constant promotion of reckless chaos, one would assume Obama’s world is not a world as he thinks it should be – at least not yet.
Without a doubt, the President’s ‘standards of judgment’ remain ‘rooted in’ more concern over Palestinian border issues than those of Arizona, Texas and California. Which may explain why Barack chose to insert Alinsky principles into the Middle East solution when he said: “after decades of accepting the world as it is in the region, we have a chance to pursue the world as it should be.”
Obama’s ‘wished-for fantasy’ concerning Israel was revealed with the shocking suggestion that 40+ years later the “borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.”
America’s President explicitly stated “The United States,” which in his mind is represented solely by the opinions of Barack Obama, “believes that negotiations should result in two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine.”
Texas and California should proceed with caution, because with Alinsky’s Lucifer-lauding “world as it should be” guiding the way the next thing Obama may decide to do in an initial effort to resolve yet another border crisis is to return the two states to Mexico.
Either way, one important issue has finally been resolved. In a misguided attempt to grant America’s Promised Land to illegals through the exploitation of out-of-context Scripture and then the attempt to deny the actual Promised Land to its rightful heirs using a quote from the mouth of an atheistic mentor, the world as Barack Obama believes “it should be” has been finally been laid bare.
