As a Christian I can't get in the head of another man and I don't really like to use the word hate unless I am applying the term to a particular action which I find to violate what God expects of me. At the same time, however, I am expected to love my brothers and sisters on this earth and while that is often difficult, I try my best. So that is off my chest.
But there is something mysteriously different about this President from any predecessor, for he routinely takes positions that go against the grain of the American Spirit. Israel has been our best friend in the Middle East and a good ally, yet he chooses to work to her detriment, supporting terrorist groups such as Hamas while attempting to dictate to Prime Minister Netanyahu what he is allowed to do in his own country. He even tried to directly influence the Israeli election but thankfully was not able to prevail.
Egypt overthrew a dictator, Hosni Mubarak, a man with many faults but who did further American interests, but when it was time for a replacement to be picked, Obama sided with the worst possible option. Mohamed Morsi, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, was elected with the avid approval of Obama and quickly set out to turn Egypt into a dictatorial theocracy. It took the courage of the Army Chief of Staff, General el-Sisi to take charge and bring the country back to the future and return to secular government.
And, of course, no one can forget the Arab Spring disaster, the Benghazi attack and coverup and the resulting growth of the influence of the Mullahs of Iran who seem to have a special place in Obama's heart. In a speech recently he even called the tyrant leader the Supreme Leader, something I don't think any other President would ever consider. And word is finally getting out about just how disastrous the nuclear talks were, with Iran winning all key points while America came away with nothing, not even a signed document. The likely outcome will be a nuclear Iran with ICBM capability and an arms race in the region as the other nations, most of whom are vehemently opposed to the Mullahs, realize that America will not help in their defense.
Here at home, Obama claims to be a Christian while pursuing actions which clearly single out Christianity for persecution in daily life. The gay marriage issue and attempts to force Christians to violate tenets of their faith by force of law, as well as his constant avoidance of talking about Muslim ties to terror while demonizing Christian actions, are just a few examples. His countenance of atrocious behavior in government with scandals like Fast and Furious, the IRS singling out Conservative groups for harassment and the poor care given to our veterans by a corrupt VA system have never been resolved due to a strong coverup obviously ongoing. They are, however, hastening the bankruptcy process for our broken government.
And while we know that his childhood was a mess, with indoctrination against the American way by his own mother and his mentoring by an American Communist Party member, the young man grew with a head full of radical ideas that remain in place today. Also, never forget the image in his mind he must have of the father that he hardly knew, a man who hated Britain, underwhich he was ruled as a young man in Kenya. Obama inherited that animosity and tied it to the close relationship between the two countries, the United States and Britain, going back to colonial days.
Unfortunately, what we know about him is limited since his records have been sealed and he has expended great effort and cost to keep them that way. But why? And who paid for it? And how did America elect an unknown man and how did he get the push to allow it to happen?
So the bottom line is we really can't get to the bottom of the puzzle or the full answer to the question posed. But it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that something is dreadfully wrong and I think it is highly probable that at some point we'll uncover the pieces of the puzzle. I only hope that America is still alive when that day comes, not squandered away due to the misdoings of a President who we never really knew. I pray that our wonderful land survives the onslaught she is facing and that we can be reborn as the leader of the free world again, for right now we are leading nothing except a train headed to disaster. God help us all.
