Baraq O Bawmaw
Vol: 134 Issue: 28 Wednesday, November 28, 2012
As much as I didn’t want to look at it, I could not ignore the Drudge Report picture of actor Jamie Foxx at the Soul Train Awards asking the audience to ‘give honor to God and our Lord and Savior, Barack Obama.’ (Groan! I know, I know. Bear with me.)
One might chalk the proclamation up to racism. The Soul Train Awards is exclusively black and Foxx referred to the event as being “like church”.
And according to the same Drudge Report, Obama received 98% of the female black vote and 93% of the black vote overall. So race might have played a role. Ya think?
“I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, ‘Let’s build on where we already are,'” the Rev. Al Sharpton told reporters after a White House meeting last week with a collection of advocates representing largely Democratic constituencies.
Specifically, Sharpton said, that means keeping the brunt of the looming “fiscal cliff” of tax increases and spending cuts off the backs of the middle and working class.
Al Sharpton has never exhibited any concern for the middle or working classes, except where there was some racial element he could exploit.
To borrow a tactic from the Obama camp, these are racist code words. The NAACP didn’t even try to speak in code. Why would they? For the next four years, they are invulnerable to criticism.
NAACP President Benjamin Jealous aimed that same message at Congress, especially on where tax relief is extended.
“We need Republicans to think hard and to pull back from the cliff 98 percent of our families, who make up the bulk of this nation, from seeing our taxes being raised,” Jealous said.
Before moving on, let’s fix some of these numbers. Actually, the percentage of Americans represented by the NAACP works out to just under 13% of the total electorate. While the overall unemployment rate is 7.9%, among the black population it is somewhere north of 14%.
Jealous’ presentation of the 98% figure is interesting. The only logical place I can infer that he pulled that number from is from the fact that the top two percent of the population pay more than a third of all federal taxes, while the top ten percent pay more than 43% of all federal taxes.
The unemployed pay zero federal taxes. In fact, almost half of all Americans pay zero federal taxes. The “fiscal cliff” everybody is panicking about would require the top income earners to pay more but it would also force the moocher class to get jobs since the extra tax money would service the debt instead of being redistributed.
Now we’ve adjusted the rhetoric to meet the facts, let’s return to the Jamie Foxx’s Lord and Savior, Barack Obama.
During the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, delegates voted to cut any mention of God from their platform, even as they constructed a giant, stained glass background for their messiah’s address.
One poster on display at the convention shows a picture of Obama (looking messianic) along with the following explanation:
“Barak is of Hebrew origin and its meaning is ‘flash of lightning. . . Hussein is a Biblical word meaning good and handsome. So you see, Barak was destined to be a good and handsome man that would rise like a flash of lightning to win victory in a battle against overwhelming odds.”
I guess that is one way of interpreting it.
The Bible says that in the last days, a politician will arise who will captivate the world the way that Obama has captivated America. He will seemingly have all the answers to what ails us, and will be embraced as the world’s messiah. The Bible identifies him as the antichrist.
The Apostle Paul says that he will go so far as to sit on the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant and proclaim himself to be the messiah.
Here is a little of what we know about the coming antichrist from the Bible;
- He will rise from obscurity (a “little horn” (Daniel 7:8);
- He will speak boastfully (Daniel 7:8, Revelation 13:5);
- He will blaspheme God; (Daniel 7:25, 11:26, Revelation 13:5, 2nd Thessalonians 2:7);
- He will oppress Jews and Christians (Revelation 13:7)
- He will try to change the calendar, perhaps to define a new era, related to himself (Daniel 7:25);
- He will try to change the laws; (Daniel 7:25)
- He will show no regard for the religion of his ancestors (Daniel 11:37).
I never thought Obama qualified on the grounds that Obama is just about the most incompetent president to sit in the Oval Office in my lifetime, not even excluding Jimmy Carter.
But while he may be an incompetent governor, he is a master deceiver whose primary political tools are division, deception and covetousness. His re-election was much like his first term in office –he is almost supernatural in his ability to charm and deceive and manipulate his base.
Let’s compare what we know of Obama to what we know of the coming antichrist:
- After four years in office, we still don’t know where the guy was actually born. He went from total obscurity as an unknown Chicago politician to the DNC’s keynote speaker and next presidential candidate, almost overnight.
- Obama is the most boastful Chief Executive I’ve ever seen. His every speech is peppered with “I” and “me” — recall his comment during the debate about how ambassadors represent him personally?
- We’ve already mentioned the DNC debacle when they removed any mention of God from their platform.
- Whether one thinks Obama oppresses Jews or Christians depends, I suppose, on whether one is a Jew or a Christian.
- There are rumors that Obama has plans to have the Constitution amended so he can seek a third term.
- His is the most openly lawless administration in living memory.
- His ancestral religion is Islam, his claimed religion is Christianity, but his demeanor doesn’t reflect either religion.
Nobody has ever seen his actual birth certificate and he STILL pays a team of lawyers to keep his background secret, with the full support of the mainstream media and a significant portion of the American public.
Why? Because they are afraid of being tainted by the “birther” label. But there are lots of other records he is STILL hiding even as he prepares for a second term.
Like his records from Occidental College so that the allegation that Obama attended that school on a scholarship reserved for foreign students can be resolved. Or records showing how a self-admittedly “poor student” made it from Occidental to Columbia and Harvard.
Obama, by his own admission was a very heavy marijuana user in his youth. He has also admitted to using cocaine. He also admitted to being a serious drinker. How is it that these records don’t hurt him enough to try to conceal them?
But anybody that dares to ask to see background records on his birth, his citizenship, his education or his transcripts is a racist?
Do I really believe that Obama is the antichrist? Probably not. Do I believe that he COULD be? There is actually only two disqualifying factors. The first is that he was born in the United States. If he were born in Kenya, he would have been born a British citizen.
The second disqualifying factor is that Obama is not a prince of the revived Roman Empire. Unless he is successful in his efforts to fundamentally transform America into something more like Europe, which is certainly the direction America is now taking.
In the event the EU and US were to merge into a single economy under Obama, he would certainly qualify as one of its princes.
Let us return to the DNC poster again and the DNC’s interpretation of Barak as Hebrew for “lightning.” First off, the interpretation is correct, as far is it goes. But it doesn’t go far enough.
“And He said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.” (Luke 10:18)
The speaker in this passage is the REAL Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Although this verse was written in Greek, Jesus spoke Aramaic, the most ancient form of Hebrew.
The Hebrew word for ‘heaven’ in the verse means the same thing as ‘heights’. Indeed, Isaiah 14:14 says of Satan’s first sin ,
“I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”
The Hebrew letter “waw” is transliterated into English as either an “o” or a “u”. It is used as a conjunction to join two thoughts.
Make of it what you will. But Jesus, speaking in Aramaic, would have said, “I saw Satan as Baraq O Bawmaw”.
