WATCHING THE TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA
Pastor Roger Anghis
January 25, 2015
During the last days of the 2008 presidential campaign Barack Obama stated that "we are just a few days from fundamentally transforming America." All through the campaign he talked about hope and change. Nobody ever asked him what kind of changes he was going to make. MSM ignored so much about his past and his history. They questioned McCain's eligibility but not Obama's. No Republican could have gotten away with no definitive explanation of the changes he was going to make.
Barack Obama promised that he was going to cut spending but within the first few months he had spent more than all 43 previous presidents combined! Our national debt was $8.5 trillion when he took office. Just last week the national debt surpassed $18 trillion. He is the first president that caused our credit rating to be lowered. Reagan's cabinet had 68% of the people who had good business experience, Obama's cabinet has 6% of experienced business people.
He said he was going to close Gitmo and in Denver he signed an executive order that was to close Gitmo. All he has done is release the detainees and they have gone back to the battlefield against America.
He is the first president that has gone overseas and called America arrogant. He is the first American president that has ignored our history and has publically attempted to re-write out real history. Last week he stated that muslims built the very fabric of our nation. Muslims didn't have anything to do with the building of America except supply us with slaves. I don't really consider that a part of the 'fabric' of our nation.
The American dollar was used as the world currency when he took office now it is being discarded because it is so weak. Our status among other nations has fallen to a low never seen in America except when we were on the rise in the early 1800's. He has bypassed Congress with executive orders on a number of occasions because they would not pass legislation that he wanted. Right after the election he, through executive order, re-wrote our immigration laws even though he does not have the Constitutional power to do so. He has on several occasions simply decided that there were laws that he would not enforce: immigration laws, the Defense of Marriage Act to name a few.
When the Department of Energy was established in the late 1970's by Jimmy Carter it was to help make our nation energy independent. We were importing 15-20% of our oil at that time. That agency now has a $26 billion budget and today we import 70% of our oil. Even under these conditions Obama has done nothing to increase our oil production on federal land. As a matter of fact even though we are producing more oil than in 2008 the increase is all on private land, production on federal land has decreased about 20%. This oil belongs to the people not the government. Areas such as ANWAR in Alaska should be opened up for drilling and all currant bans elsewhere needs to be lifted. In the last six years we have seen the Democrat Party introduce legislation to ban ALL offshore drilling on the East coast, in the Gulf and on the entire West coast. These bills actually call for the shutting down existing working wells!
Obama has allowed the EPA to regulate some coal powered power plants right out of business. There has been an increase of 150% in coal powered plant production but we have also seen a 90% decrease in pollution because of clean coal yet the EPA wants to take us back to the 1800's the amount of pollution. The very bothersome thing about the EPA is that they are a regulatory agency that is NOT answerable to the people. That is something that our Founders would never have allowed, and we should not either.
Since Obama has taken office he has averaged 65 new regulations a day on businesses. Between Thanksgiving and the end of 2014 he issued over 4500+ new regulations. The regulations that he issued in 2014 will cost businesses over $12 billion dollars to implement. He already has another 2500+ set for the beginning of 2015. These regulations have the reverse effect in their attempt to stimulate the economy. When Reagan took office he began to de-regulate businesses. The Democrats went nuts! But at the end of his first term the economy was recouping enough to be creating a sustained 400,000+ jobs a month. Obama hasn't reached a sustained 300,000 in six years.
Obama has continuously done things that strain the economy and put massive burdens on the taxpayer. He points to the stock market highs as proof that the economy is improving when it isn't an indication at all. During the crash of '29 it took the stock market 18 months to get back to where it was when the crash hit. The economy didn't recover sufficiently for another ten years. The stock market is at all time highs today, but the economy is still in the tank. He says the unemployment is lower than before the 2008 crash but there are over a million more people out of the workforce than when he took office! He simply doesn't count some people. None of his figures agree with each other. It's a game of smoke and mirrors.
Some have asked why is he doing some of the things he is doing? It is easy to determine. He was born to a marxist/communist mother and father. His step-father was a communist and muslim. He went to a muslim school in Indonesia. When his mother sent him to live with his grandparents, her parents, in Hawaii his communist training continued as his grandparents were communists. His grandfather introduced Barack to Frank Marshall Davis who became his mentor. Frank Marshall Davis was kicked out of Chicago in the 1950's for his communist activities. When he went to school at Columbia he went as a foreign student. When he went to Chicago he sat for 20 years under Jeremiah Wright who preached black liberation theology. This is basically a mosque with a Christian name. One of his 'close friends' was domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Obama said that their kids went to school together but Ayers' kids were years older than Obama's.
With a background like this, and all of this information was available on the internet before the 2008 election, just what was it about him that made people think that he was a proud American and wanted to do what was best for America? Obama never talked about the 'change' he had in mind because the people would not have liked the change. He even stated in his book Audacity of Hope - 'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.' He has stated that he is a Christian. I say he is a liar. He has allowed his 'muslim brothers' to massacre thousands of Christians, men, women and children shooting them, beheading young children and raping the women and in many cases burying them alive or selling them into sex slavery without so much as a comment condemning the action.
Obama's complete lack of concern over Fast and Furious, the NSA, the FBI, the IRS, Benghazi and what is going on at the border is unimaginable for a President. I will say this and that is MSM does not hold him or anyone in his administration accountable. If he was a Republican there would have been impeachment proceedings long ago. Richard Nixon was involved in the cover up of wiretapping one office and was forced from office for it. Obama has tapped most of the world and they say nothing. It got to the point with MSM that during the morning meetings of newspapers and broadcast studios in discussing what would be printed or aired that day the first item of business was; "How do we protect Obama today?'
America has changed and it has been changing. I have seen a lot of change in my 64 years but what bothers me most is the apathy that I see. Nobody wants to be bothered with paying attention to who we elect or what they do. I hear from all corners that what happened in 1930's Germany could never happen here, yet it is happening and they don't see it. America is slipping away and no one seems to care. I do believe that America will not be lost while the church is still here. God still has His remnant that has not bowed the knee and as long as that remnant is vigilant America will remain. She will have problems but she will still stand.
The path we are on is dangerous. The path we are on leads to destruction and the reason we are on this path is because the church has failed in its mandate from God. As the church goes, so goes the nation. The church doesn't seem to want to return to its first love and without that there will only be trouble for them. The part of the church that is standing and refusing to compromise will be prosperous even when everything else is failing. It is coming. Be part of the uncompromised church.
