Why do our politicians have to be so weird? You can tell a lot about a person by the jewelry that they wear and by the things that they carry around in their pockets, and Barack Obama’s “lucky charms” include a Hindu god, a Masonic emblem and a “wedding ring” that has the phrase “there is no god except Allah” inscribed on it. So what do these things tell us about Barack Obama? That is a very good question. Perhaps someone should ask him about these items. If he is indeed a Prince Hall Freemason (as has been publicly reported), then he should just come out and admit it. If he feels a connection to Hinduism or Islam, then he should just come out and admit it. One of the biggest things that annoys so many people about Obama is the secrecy that he has about his past. There are vast stretches of his history that nobody is even supposed to talk about. We are all just supposed to accept that he is a “Christian” man that is not into any freaky stuff even when there is a tremendous amount of evidence to the contrary.
Personally, I would love to see a reporter ask him about the little Hindu god that Obama carries around in his pocket. The following is a photo that has been circulating around the Internet of Obama displaying this Hindu idol along with a bunch of other “lucky charms” that he carries around.
In an open letter to black evangelicals, Michael Brown candidly asks whether they compromised their beliefs by voting for the re-election of President Barack Obama.
“Are you guilty, on any level, of blind allegiance to the Democratic party? And, on Election Day, did any of you compromise your convictions out of racial solidarity?” the radio show host and author of A Queer Thing Happened to America wrote Tuesday on Townhall.com.
“I simply do not understand how my black evangelical friends who so staunchly oppose same-sex marriage and who stand against abortion could cast their vote for the most radically pro-abortion, pro-gay-activist president in our history,” he said as a fellow evangelical.
According to exit polls from last Tuesday’s presidential election, 93 percent of African-American voters backed Obama, a slight drop from 95 percent in 2008. Still, an analysis by The New Republic concludes that black turnout or support for Obama “might have exceeded ’08 levels.”
Poll workers in Boca Raton, Florida, tried to bar a woman from voting in the Nov. 6 election because she was wearing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology T-shirt. Officials apparently believed MIT was the Republican presidential candidate. Local media report they eventually figured out what it does stand for. Meanwhile, a poll worker in Denver called a supervisor when she spotted a voter wearing an MIT sweatshirt. The supervisor assured her that voter was not violating a state law against electioneering near a polling place.
Reports are circulating about a book written by a Florida professor that was released prior to the election, which equates Barack Obama to Jesus and declares that his God-given mission is to bring “heaven on earth.”
The Gospel According to Apostle Barack was written by Florida A&M professor Barbara A. Thompson, who states that she was given a series of dreams by God in which she was able to realize Obama’s purpose as the leader of the free world. She says that after God answered her prayers to heal her son Gibran, who was badly injured in an accident, God told her to “go on a journey with Apostle Barack.”
“His followers needed to re-elect him to a second term so that he could continue to accomplish the promises he made, thus, realizing his vision of America as a more perfect political union or ‘heaven here on earth,’” she writes in her book description on Amazon. “[A]s I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid, something miraculous happened. I felt God’s Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night.”
“Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society; Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society for the middle class and working poor,” she continued. “Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of ‘heaven here on earth’ for his followers.”
She said that Obama had provided all of the solutions to the nation’s problems during speeches made from 2007-2009.
“Those speeches or his teachings contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a ‘heaven here on earth,’” she claimed. “For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized.”
The 220-page book also outlines the various accomplishments of Obama during his first term in office, calling them the “good news.”
According to the student newspaper at Florida A&M University, just days before the election, Thompson hosted a book signing at the university’s Southside Arts Complex, where she was greeted by an estimated 100 supporters.
“I know this book will be inspiring,” Jeema Richardson, a senior English student from Jacksonville, Florida told The Famuan at the signing. “I picked up my copy today and I’m eager to start reading about her revelations.”
At a polling location in Philadelphia, where Republican election officials were reinstated by a judge earlier today, via Fox News:
Workers at a Philadelphia polling place, after being ordered by a judge to cover up a mural of President Obama “in its entirety,” slapped up a few pieces of paper that only partially covered his image — while leaving the Obama campaign logo and a quote from the current president in full view for voters.
The judge’s order followed a wave of complaints from Republican officials concerned the giant image of the president could influence voters at the site, a school in Ward 35.
The mural, positioned behind the voting machines, contains the words “change!” and “hope,” along with a quote from the president and painting of him. Poll workers only covered up part of the mural, though, leaving the Obama campaign logo and other parts of the image visible, as well as the Obama quote.
Poll workers claimed only the face had to be covered.
Republicans quickly drew attention to the image Tuesday morning, with one Mitt Romney spokesman tweeting: “Voters in Philly’s Ward 35 are being forced to cast their ballots next to this.”
“It is an absolute disgrace,” said Shannon Royer, deputy secretary for external affairs and elections in Pennsylvania. “Election materials and electioneering inside the polling place are prohibited by state law. This can be interpreted as trying to influence voters inside the polling place. I am told discussions are going on now about covering the mural.”
Pennsylvania election law states “no person within a polling place may electioneer or solicit votes for any political party, political body, or candidate, nor may any unauthorized written or printed materials be posted within the polling place.”
School district spokesman Fernando Gallard told FoxNews.com the mural was “inspirational” and one of two that went up in 2009 following a student vote. “Not our call,” he said.
Also from Philly:
A Pennsylvania judge issued an order Tuesday to reinstate Republican election officials across Philadelphia who allegedly were ejected or refused entry by on-site Democratic voting chief judges.
One Republican official claimed that “just under 70″ Republican election officials were blocked from Philadelphia polling sites Tuesday morning by Democrats on site. One of them, the official claimed, “was shoved out of the polling place.”

HOUSTON, TX -Friday afternoon at an early polling place located at 6719 W. Montgomery Road in Houston, NAACP members were seen advocating for President Barack Obama according to volunteer poll watchers on location at the time.
According to Eve Rockford, a poll watcher trained by voter integrity group True the Vote, three NAACP members showed up to the 139 precinct location with 50 cases of bottled water and began handing bottles out to people standing in line. While wearing NAACP labeled clothing, members were “stirring the crowd” and talking to voters about flying to Ohio to promote President Barack Obama.
After watching what was occurring, Rockford approached Polling Supervisor Rose Cochran about what she was seeing.
“I went to the polling supervisor and let her know that it was not appropriate that they were in the building handing out water. She ignored me. I repeated my statement. She told me that she would handle it. She did nothing. I then went to the assistant supervisor and he stood up, walked over to another table and then sat down. I then walked into the waiting room and they were reloading another dolly with more cases of water,” Rockford said in a True the Vote incident report.
After handing out water and advocating for President Obama, the NAACP members started handpicking and moving people to the front of a long voting line inside the polling place according to the incident report. After multiple complaints from voters about the line cutting, Rockford received a phone call from downtown telling her to “stand down.”
“All of the sudden one of the clerks, Dayan Cohen, said that someone wanted to speak to me on the phone. It was someone from downtown. I got on the phone and she said she was from downtown and that I needed to stand down and that it was okay for the NAACP to be within 100 ft. and they could hand out water. I told her that the NAACP was inside the building, wearing the NAACP clothing and caps and were handing out water and moving people from the back of the lines to the front of the lines,” Rockford said.
At this point, NAACP members were instructed to turn their clothing inside out, which they refused to do and said they weren’t going to stop their actions inside the polling place. Their behavior and actions to move people to the front of the line continued for the rest of the evening. Texas State Representative Sylvester Turner, a former Texas NAACP leader, was also seen outside the building talking with voters.
“The NAACP basically ran this poll location and the judges did nothing about it,” Rockford said.
Against whom? Who did what to merit revenge?
The pastor who prayed and delivered the benediction at President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration has caused controversy by reportedly suggesting that every black person should vote for Obama on Nov. 6, and that white people are going to hell.
Pastor Joseph Lowery’s comments, made at St. James Baptist Church at a rally in Forsyth, Ga., as part of a Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), were covered by the Monroe County Reporter, which reported:
“Lowery praised Obama’s commitment to the poor and said politicians should quit saying ‘middle class’ and go ahead and say ‘poor.’ Then he urged individuals to look at their own character and conduct.
‘We’ve turned our backs on the faith,’ said Lowery. ‘America is going to hell in a hand basket. We need to straighten up so God can use us.’
Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back to where he was.
‘I’m frightened by the level of hatred and bitterness coming out in this election,’ said Lowery.’”
A new advertisement for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has many viewers disgusted at what they believe are gutter-level insinuations.
The web advertisement, which is geared toward youth that are first-time voters, features Lena Dunham of the sexually explicit HBO television series Girls.
“Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You wanna do it with a great guy,” the ad begins. “It should be with a guy with beautiful… someone who really cares about and understands women.”
After further using suggestive sexual innuendo, she states, “[You want] a guy who cares whether you get health insurance and specifically whether you get birth control. You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq. You don’t want a guy who says, ‘Oh hey, I’m at the library studying,’ when really he’s out signing the Lilly Ledbetter Act. Or, who thinks that gay people should never have beautiful, complicated weddings of the kind we see on Bravo or TLC all the time.”
The advertisement then closes by finally getting around to letting the viewer know that Dunham is talking about voting.
“My first time voting was amazing. It was this line in the sand. Before I was a girl, now I was a woman,” she says. “I went to the polling station; I pulled back the curtain; I voted for Barack Obama.”
The commercial then ends with the standard announcement, “I’m Barack Obama and I approve this message.”

Sandra Fluke, the woman at the center of a media firestorm earlier this year after Rush Limbaugh called her a “slut,” spoke Saturday in front of about 10 people at the Sak ‘N Save in north Reno.
Ha ha ha! Why, I’d bet even today, Monica Lewinsky could probably still draw at least 11.
Next week Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are scheduled to meet for their third and final presidential debate, this time focusing on foreign policy. Although he will be on the ballot in at least 48 states on November 6, Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party’s nominee, was not invited, lest an actual debate about foreign policy break out.
Johnson, a former Republican governor of New Mexico, believes that so-called defense spending should be used for defense, that the United States “should resort to military action as the last option and only as provided in the Constitution,” and that our foreign policy should be “reoriented toward the protection of U.S. citizens and interests.” Obama and Romney, by contrast, believe “it is the responsibility of our president to use America’s great power to shape history,” as Romney put it in a recent speech.
In a debate limited to Obama and Romney, you will not hear anyone question, as Johnson does, whether frustrating Iran’s nuclear ambitions is worth launching yet another war in the Middle East. You will not hear anyone wonder, as Johnson does, whether occupying Afghanistan for 13 years was the only way to “make sure that the Taliban does not come back in and give Al Qaeda a safe haven,” which is how Ryan described the aim of the longest war in American history.
Biden did allow that as of next year “it is the responsibility of the Afghans to take care of their own security.” What about Europe, Japan, and South Korea? That’s the sort of question Johnson asks but Obama and Romney never will.
Another Johnson theme neglected by the two major parties: The Constitution requires the president to obtain congressional approval before starting a war.
Like Johnson, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) worries that “we are in too many places, too often, and we don’t seem to even know the reason—or where we will end up when we’re done.” Instead of learning from foreign fiascos, Paul says in a recent CNN.com essay, “both parties rush headlong into more places they don’t understand.”
For strategic, fiscal, and moral reasons, we desperately need an alternative to what Paul calls our “‘act first, think later’ foreign policy.” Unfortunately, neither major party is offering one.
Never mind, good citizen-subjects; just use neo-con logic:
Today, according to the White House pool report, President Obama told Jon Stewart during a Comedy Central Daily Show taping that the deaths of our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were “not optimal.” This comes just weeks after President Obama told CBS News’ Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes that the murders of four Americans in Benghazi were “bumps in the road.” By way of contrast, President Obama described the YouTube video “The Innocence of Muslims,” which had nothing to do with the Benghazi attacks, as “crude and disgusting,” an “insult,” and said that its message “must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity.”
To reiterate: deaths of Americans are “not optimal,” and “bumps in the road.” A YouTube video is “bigotry,” “blasphemy,” “crude and disgusting,” an “insult,” and inhuman.
The left is already saying that the “not optimal” quote has been taken out of context; they were saying that Stewart used the word “optimal” first. The problem: it’s far worse in context. Stewart said that the White House response was “not the optimal response.” Obama responded not by tackling the White House response, but by calling the murders “not optimal.”
Here’s the transcript from the White House pool report:
Jon Stewart: “Is part of the investigation helping the communication between these divisions? Not just what happened in Benghazi, but what happened within. Because I would say, even you would admit, it was not the optimal response, at least to the American people, as far as all of us being on the same page.”
POTUS: “Here’s what I’ll say. If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.
“Not optimal.” Now that’s disgusting.
Fricking right it’s disgusting!
More than 250 teachers and students of a public charter middle school in Rhode Island spent Thursday at a political rally for President Obama – leading some Republicans to wonder why the kids weren’t taken to a Mitt Romney rally, too.
The Blackstone Valley Prep Mayoral Academy rented coach buses as well as school buses to travel more than two hours to New Hampshire where the president addressed his supporters on Thursday.
“Whether you are a supporter of President Obama or not, the opportunity to hear the President of the United States speak in person is truly an extraordinary one,” Head of School Joy Souza told the Providence Journal.
At least one teacher was left behind at the academy to supervise around 20 students who chose not to attend. They also had to do class work related to the presidential campaign and American politics. It’s unclear what education activities the students at the Obama rally were required to perform.
The school has not en masse attended a Mitt Romney political campaign, sources at the school told Fox News.
Homeschool your kids!
During the second presidential debate between incumbent Barack Obama and his Republican contender Mitt Romney, both agreed that employers should be mandated to provide contraception coverage to their staff.
The debate was held Tuesday night at Hofstra University near Long Island, New York, and was moderated by CNN’s Candy Crowley.
While the night centered mostly on taxes, the deficit and lowering gas prices, in answering a question about pay equity for women in the workforce, Obama began to segue into discussion about contraception.
“[A] major difference in this campaign is that Governor Romney feels comfortable having politicians in Washington decide the health care choices that women are making. I think that’s a mistake,” he said. “In my health care bill, I said insurance companies need to provide contraceptive coverage to everybody who is insured, because this is not just a health issue; it’s an economic issue for women. It makes a difference. This is money out of that family’s pocket.”
“Governor Romney not only opposed it; he suggested that, in fact, employers should be able to make the decision as to whether or not a woman gets contraception through her insurance coverage,” Obama continued. “That’s not the kind of advocacy that women need.”
When Romney was granted his turn to speak, and was presented a question by an audience member as to how he differs from former president George W. Bush, he stated that he wished to first clarify Obama’s remark. Romney advised that Obama had mischaracterized the Republican candidate’s views on contraception, as he does indeed support their use and believes that employers should be mandated to provide them.
“I’d just note that I don’t believe that bureaucrats in Washington should tell someone whether they can use contraceptives or not, and I don’t believe employers should tell someone whether they could have contraceptive care or not,” Romney noted. “Every woman in America should have access to contraceptives.”
“And the president’s statement of my policy is completely and totally wrong,” he added.
As previously reported, Romney had made a similar statement in January during a Republican primary debate.
“I can’t imagine a state banning contraception. I can’t imagine the circumstances where a state would want to do so, and if I were a governor of a state or a state legislature, I would totally and completely oppose any effort to ban contraception,” he outlined.
Romney also reportedly attended a fundraiser with Teva Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of the morning-after pill, in May of this year.

The creators of Big Bird have called on the Obama campaign to withdraw a new advertisement that uses the character in an attack on rival Mitt Romney.
The ad mocks the Republican candidate for singling out the public broadcaster behind Sesame Street for spending cuts.
Mr Romney said in a presidential debate last week that he would slash funding to PBS, despite liking Big Bird.
Sesame Workshop, the non-profit behind the long-running children’s show, said in a statement that it was a nonpartisan organisation.
“We do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns,” the organisation said.
“We have approved no campaign ads and, as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”
A top Democrat strategist and donor who served as President Obama’s lead auto-industry adviser recently conceded that the rationing of heath services under Obamacare is “inevitable.”
Steven Rattner advocated that such rationing should target elderly patients, while stating, “We need death panels.”
Rattner serves on the board the New America Foundation, or NAF, a George Soros-funded think tank that was instrumental in supporting Obamacare in 2010. Soros’ son, financier Jonathan Soros, is also a member of the foundation’s board.
Rattner was the so-called “car czar,” the lead auto adviser to the Treasury Department under Obama.
Last month, Rattner penned an opinion piece in the New York Times titled “Beyond Obamacare” in which he proclaimed “We need death panels” and argued rationing must be instructed to sustain Obama’s health-care plan. His comments have been virtually ignored by traditional media as the president campaign’s for a second term.
“We need death panels,” began Rattner. “Well, maybe not death panels, exactly, but unless we start allocating health-care resources more prudently – rationing, by its proper name – the exploding cost of Medicare will swamp the federal budget.”
The Obama campaign apparently didn’t look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, “Forward” — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.
Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name “Forward!” or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called “Forward (generic name of socialist publications).”
“The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,” the online encyclopedia explains.
The slogan “Forward!” reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.
The Obama campaign released its new campaign slogan Monday in a 7-minute video. The title card has simply the word “Forward” with the “O” having the familiar Obama logo from 2008. It will be played at rallies this weekend that mark the Obama re-election campaign’s official beginning.
There have been at least two radical-left publications named “Vorwaerts” (the German word for “Forward”). One was the daily newspaper of the Social Democratic Party of Germany whose writers included Friedrich Engels and Leon Trotsky. It still publishes as the organ of Germany’s SDP, though that party has changed considerably since World War II. Another was the 1844 biweekly reader of the Communist League. Karl Marx, Engels and Mikhail Bakunin are among the names associated with that publication.
East Germany named its Army soccer club ASK Vorwaerts Berlin (later FC Vorwaerts Frankfort).
Vladimir Lenin founded the publication “Vpered” (the Russian word for “forward”) in 1905. Soviet propaganda film-maker Dziga Vertov made a documentary whose title is sometimes translated as “Forward, Soviet” (though also and more literally as “Stride, Soviet”).
And there’s China’s infamous ‘Great Leap Forward’…
Conservative critics of the Obama administration have noted numerous ties to radicalism and socialists throughout Mr. Obama’s history, from his first political campaign being launched from the living room of two former Weather Underground members, to appointing as green jobs czar Van Jones, a self-described communist.
Of course, it is well known that many neo-con leading lights were once Trotskyists, so they’re hardly in a position to cast stones; only trad-cons and paleo-cons can…
I received the following email from a couple who just returned from a trip to the Middle East:
“My husband and I just came back from the Middle East. As we arrived in Cairo, going down the mechanical stairs to go to the baggage claim area, there’s this big poster which reads: “We must educate our children to become like young Egyptian people.” President of the USA, Barack Obama
“I liked to choke. I could not believe my eyes. Had to go back and climb the stairs in order to take the picture. Could not leave the place without it!”
I don’t know when and where President Obama said this, but it’s rather ironic given what we see happening in Cairo today. Muslim children are being taught to hate America. Many of them are being brainwashed to be ideological terrorists. Ideological terrorists become objective terrorists believing they are acting in accordance with their religious worldview. A tenet of their religion is to advance Islam by any means possible even if it requires violence.
