OBAMA WATCH

What effect does Barack Obama have on moral issues like abortion and marriage?



PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE:

The United States is apparently not a major player in world affairs during the end-times. What will happen to our country in the next few yearsthat will remove us from our present role as the world's only superpower? One major factor is the choice of the American people of its leaders, andthe appointment by those leaders of key positions. Those leaders could nudge us toward socialism and adoption of a one-world government structure. Thiscould set the scene for a the despotic antichrist world ruler.

This section will track President-Elect Obama's beliefs and policies about moral issues, like those that revolve around freedoms,right to life and traditional marriage.

It will also record some of the major governmental scancals that are weakening our country because many of those issues are caused by thecontroversial policies of this administration.

Some Scriptures to keep in mind are:

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.” – Isaiah 5:20

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” - Proverbs 14:34

Mr. Obama's deafening silence

Dec. 16, 2013 - Michael Youssef quotes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:
"In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."
In behalf of persecuted Christians everywhere Youssef wonders why there is no word of compassion from President Obama for Christians who are being killed or mutilated,and for the churches being destroyed in Nigeria, Central African Republic, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, or any of the fifty-plus other countries whereChristians are being persecuted. He asks the president, if he claims to be a Christian, to be like Dr. King and break his silence.

Significance of Obama and Moral Issues


'2016': Obama plans to 'take America down'

Nov. 27, 2013 - In 2012 Dinesh D'Souza produced “2016: Obama’s America,” the year's highest-grossing documentary. It predicted that Obamawould purposely spend money promiscuously, raising the national debt radically in spite of the negative impact of the debt on American citizens. At the timehe said that he hoped he was wrong, but unfortunately, the president has racked up the debt at the rate of $1 trillion a year.

D'Souza's predictions were based on the socialist/ communist/ even anti-American upbringing of our president.

Obama’s plot to “drag the economy down” and redistribute American wealth to the rest of the world – and financially cripple the nation – he explains, “is atransfer of hundreds of billions, in fact trillions of dollars, out of the United States and into other countries.”
He has now released an 8-minute addition to the film that can be viewed on the Internet.

Obama administration knew millions could not keep their health insurance

Oct. 29, 2013 - Between 2009 and 2012 President Obama repeatedly assured Americans who liked their health insurance plans thatthey would be able to keep it.
But millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare,say experts, and the Obama administration has known that for at least three years.
NBC News says that 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a “cancellation” letter.

NSA Spying Threatens to Hamper US Foreign Policy

Oct. 27, 2013 -
President Barack Obama has defended America's surveillance dragnet to leaders of Russia, Mexico, Brazil, France and Germany, but theinternational anger over the disclosures shows no signs of abating in the short run.
It is no surprise that governments are able to snoop on electronic conversations, but the extent of the information-gathering is not onlyalarming to America's enemies, but also to its allies. This scandal threatens to lessen our country's influence, and is making Secretary of StateKerry's job much more difficult.

Is Obama Creating a Martial-law-ready Military?

Oct. 16, 2013 - In this editorial the alarm is sounded about the president's demographic manipulation of not only the nation atlarge, but also of the military. Our armed forces have been a bastion of conservatism and Christian faith, so many of them are notfond of the president's views. Gradually during his years in office he has beefed up affirmative action, promoting minorities and women,homosexuals and lesbians. In addition, he has clamped down on Christian expression, issued instructional materials that characterize traditionalistsas a threat, and forced military personnel to be politically correct about Islam.

All of this raises the specter of a military that might conform to non-traditional orders if the President were to declare Martial Law.

NSA program reportedly allows analysts to track emails, chats, web searches

Aug. 1, 2013 - New information published by The Guardian reveals that the NSA's massive database captures all Internet trafficand could allow analysts to scour individuals' emails, chats and Internet browsing histories at will. The NSA acknowledged the existence of theprogram (called XKeyscore), but said that "allegations of widespread, unchecked analyst access to NSA collection data are simply not true."
The Guardian report seems to make a distinction between what is technically possible under this program and what is legally allowed. It notesthat U.S. law requires the NSA to get a warrant if the target is a U.S. individual.
However, The Guardian article claimed that the NSA allows analysts to search for information after simply filling out an on-screen form givinga basic justification.

Noonan: A Bombshell in the IRS Scandal

July 18, 2013 - A congressional hearing about the IRS targeting of conservative groups uncovered dramatic new information that someDemocratic members tried to minimize. Knowledge of the scandalous practices apparently rose at least to the level of the chief cousel of the IRS.
Still, what landed was a bombshell. And Democrats know it. Which is why they are so desperate to make the investigation go away. They know, asRepublicans do, that the chief counsel of the IRS is one of only two Obama political appointees in the entire agency.
