In his press conference on Wednesday, January 15, President Barack Obama made certain statements about “gun control” and what he intends to do about it. Two of those stand out to me as hypocritical and personally damning. Gun control is the least of Obama’s problems. When he stands before God Almighty to account for his life, God isn’t even going to mention gun control. He will, however, ask Obama to account for his words.
“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclination, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” –John Adams (1770)
1. “Protecting our children from harm shouldn’t be divisive. … I asked Joe [Biden] to lead an effort along with members of my cabinet to come up with some concrete steps we can take right now to keep our children safe. … This is our first task as a society — keeping our children safe. If there’s even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there’s even one life we can save, we have an obligation to try it. … I think about how, when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now.” (Copied from an article on the Patriot Post, follow the link to see the entire post.)
Mr. Obama’s hypocrisy is blatant. Every single day, more children are violently murdered in abortion (infanticide) mills than are ever killed by lunatics in schools. If he were completely consistent with his own rhetoric, he would immediately start pushing to eliminate the murders which happen because a “woman has the right to choose.” If even one unborn child’s life was saved because of his action, wouldn’t he have the obligation to try? According to what he said, he should act now to protect the most vulnerable among us.
The fact is that school children aren’t the most vulnerable among us, unborn children are. School children have buildings with lockable doors around them, unborn children only have wombs. School children have adults who can act on their behalf in the defense of their lives; unborn children have no such legal protection. School children have mothers and fathers who love them and want to see them come home, unborn children are not automatically guaranteed that.
Why doesn’t Obama mention this? Why doesn’t he clamor for the lives of 1.5 million unborn children who are viciously murdered each year in America? The silence is deafening. The obvious answer is that he doesn’t want to. There is no political traction for him by going down that road. In fact, if he did start to make noises to that effect, he would see his “support” vaporize like frost on a sunny morning.
2. In the press conference, Mr. Obama made it clear that he was going to move ahead on “gun control”, with or without Congress’ approval or assistance. He mentioned that he would push to vigorously prosecute those people who made false statements (lied) when applying for a background check prior to purchasing a firearm. Apparently, lying to the government is serious business. At least, it is when a person is trying to buy a gun.
My question is this. If lying (perjury, making false statements) is so bad that the federal government must come down hard on the perpetrator, then why don’t we see that action taken in other matters, for example, Eric Holder’s role in the Fast & Furious scandal? See here,
and here, for potentially incriminating statements made by Holder.
What about the President’s own sworn vow before God to uphold and defend the Constitution? What about his actions taken to murder American citizens without due process of law?
“In April 2010, …President Barack Obama placed al-Aulaqi on a list of people whom the (CIA) was authorized to kill because of terrorist activities. The “targeted killing” of an American citizen, sometimes described as an assassination order, was unprecedented…The U.S. deployed unmanned aircraft (drones)…to search for and kill him…succeeding…on September 30, 2011. Two weeks later, al-Aulaqi’s 16-year old son, Abdulrahman al-Aulaqi, a U.S citizen who was born in Denver, was killed by a CIA-led drone strike in Yemen.”
Now, before you get your knickers in a knot, understand that I am not “terrorist” friendly and do not support violent actions for political gain. Instead, by using these examples, I want to point out the blatant hypocrisy in the President’s attack of fraudulent statements on background checks while turning a blind eye to his own and those surrounding him. According to Obama, truth-telling is relative to the situation and if he has anything to say about it, he will be the one to determine what is true and what isn’t.
If Mr. Obama was really serious about rooting out lying and perjury in the government, he would start with his own house. How likely is that to happen? My guess is that pigs will fly first.
Eventually lies catch up with you. Even if Obama never answers to an earthly court concerning his perjury, he will be haled in front of a heavenly one. Invoking the name of God in an oath is not a laughing matter nor should it be taken lightly. He hasn’t learned that yet. Hopefully he will before he leaves this world behind.
