Trust in the Lord, but keep swimming
Unless you’ve been on another planet, you know our president is changing a lot of things. I’ve mixed feelings about some, but I tell myself if they should work out to the benefit of our country, great.
I didn’t vote for him, but I sincerely hope he is successful for all of our sakes. But my reservations a few months back are now major concerns.
Some writers say “Give him a chance. Follow him, and see where he leads us.” Sounds fair, huh? But what if he’s leading us off the pier, like lemmings?
Maybe I’m not too smart, but I’d like to know where I’m going before I commit to it.
Let me tell you why I have grown even more wary of President Obama. Maybe you can explain these concerns to me, like, said one guy, I was in the fourth grade.
Less than a week after his inauguration, Obama signed Presidential Determination No. 2009-17, Jan. 27, 2009, page 6115 of the Feb. 4 Federal Register, taking $20.3 million in taxpayer dollars to aid and assist “meeting unexpected and urgent refugee and migration needs of Palestinian refugees and conflict victims in Gaza.’
Now, what this does, to my way of thinking, is allow hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the U.S.
Last I heard, the U.S. considered Hamas a terrorist organization. So, what’s going on here? Looks like to me we’re not only inviting, but also paying for terrorists to come over. Jeez, don’t we have enough here already?
I wonder how the Precinct Chairpersons of Jefferson County’s Democrat party would like having the brother of a Hamas captain next door? Might be pretty interesting, huh?
Did you see any of this on the news? I don’t have a Democrat TV, so I couldn’t. If the truth were known, if the expenditure of such an amount were even mentioned, it was on the midnight news just before a commercial, and the anchor dragged his hand across his mouth to slur his words.
After the inauguration, our president’s first call to any head of state was to Mahmoud Abbas, Leader of Fatah in Palestine, not Great Britain, Israel, or any of our allies, but Palestine.
His first one-on-one TV interview was with Al Arabia TV. Why not American TV? They were awfully kind to him.
His first executive order was to fund abortions not just within the U.S., but throughout the world using U.S. taxpayer dollars.
He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted as well as overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.
Fortunately, there are enough lawmakers, both Democrats and Republicans with good sense to resist the President’s closing of the base. Like most average Americans, neither do they cater to the idea of housing any of the 240 foreign terrorism suspects in the U.S.
Can you imagine how Nancy Pelosi would bellow if the masterminds of 9/11 were housed in her neighborhood?
Speaking of which, I read where he withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and the “terror attack” on 9/11.
This too will backfire, if not already for he seems to be waffling on his initial insistence of a “kinder, gentler’ approach to interrogation upon learning that the tough techniques utilized by our CIA brought about the arrest of a terrorist group charged with planning to fly into a building in Los Angeles with a nuclear weapon.
Now, maybe all this is nothing more than a “Chicken Little” syndrome. I hope so, but I’m reminded of an old saying, “Trust in the Lord, but keep swimming.” In this case, I’m going to swim like a motorboat.
