Three great lies in presidential history.

Three unforgettable lies by Presidents but Obama’s is the most dangerous one of all.

  1. Richard Nixon: “I am not a crook.”
  2. Bill Clinton: “I did not have sex with that woman.”
  3. Barrack Obama: “I said that this was an act of terror.”

President Barack Obama “point-blank lied”  “I think the president indicted himself” on the Libya issue, Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee said. “He point-blank lied on Libya. He never called it a terrorist attack. At the end of the speech in the Rose Garden, he said that ‘Acts of terror won’t shake the nation,’ then he went on seven times and talked about the fact that this thing was from a YouTube video.

If you come away with nothing from this blog at least get this:  Something happened last night that is a first in American history.  A moderator of a presidential debate stepped in at a key moment to protect Obama from the impact of a lie.  A lie so heinous, that in any other universe, it would end his chances for reelection.   Candy Crowley’s actions went way beyond bias.  She was literally a willing partner in a mass manipulation of the facts.

I told you the night before the debate that I felt troubled in the Spirit.  I knew that there was going to be some kind of trick.  I am certain that this is the very thing that I sensed was coming.

Obama lied about his remarks in the Rose Garden on September 12th.  This is crucial because it should be the nail in the coffin of his campaign.   He refused to call the attack an act of terror for some very shameful reasons. Read on.

Obama cannot express the natural outrage of a true American President.  For the first time since 1979 an American Ambassador has been assassinated!   Moreover, he was assassinated on of all days, September 11th.   Even when he had the chance to address the nation he condemned a video before he condemned the terrorists!

It gets worse.  Instead of calling for emergency action over an act of war on American soil, he leaves for Las Vegas to raise money for his campaign.  How could he do this without fear of a backlash?   Because he knew that the media would shield him from any such backlash.

It just gets even worse.  He lied when he said there was faulty intelligence.   He lied when he said they needed an ongoing investigation.   The State Department was watching the attack on a live feed in real time!   The attack went on for 8 hours!  They saw that there was no mob rioting over a video.  They could see that weapons and tactics were in play that were clearly preplanned and the work of Al Qaeda.

Can it get any worse?   Yes.  He instructs Susan Rice, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., to keep the charade going, and say to the public that the attack was because of the video.  Obama and Clinton make a commercial for Pakistani T. V., apologizing for the video.   Jay Carney tells the press corps that is all about the video.   Obama appears on The View and throws Hillary Clinton under the bus.  Joy Behar asks, “was this a terrorist act?  Your Secretary of State now says it was, what do you say?”   His reply, to his everlasting shame, “we are still doing an investigation.”

Two weeks pass.  He still shows no outrage over the assassination.  No plan to get those responsible.  And then the final infamy:  an act so jaw dropping outrageous that there are no words.   He stands there and says, in front of millions that from the very beginning, “I said, this was an act of terror.”

Like a ref in a fixed fight, Crowley laid low as long as she could.  When she saw the knockout punch coming from Romney, she jumped in, yet again, to save the anointed one.   The lie lives on.  And that is what makes this lie so dangerous.  In the past, the press worked to expose lies, now they are helping to cover them up. 

CATHOLIC BISHOPS ISSUE SCATHING RELEASE CALLING BIDEN‘S CONTRACEPTION CLAIM ’NOT A FACT’

CATHOLIC BISHOPS ISSUE SCATHING RELEASE CALLING BIDEN‘S CONTRACEPTION CLAIM ’NOT A FACT’

Posted on October 12, 2012 at 1:25pm by Billy Hallowell

As TheBlaze noted this morning, Vice President Joe Biden and Republican contender Paul Ryan clashed over abortion and religious freedom during last night’s debate. Among the statements that were made, Biden defended the administration against claims that the government is forcing Catholic organizations to violate conscience with the enforcement of the controversial contraception mandate.

On Friday, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued a statement, fact-checking Biden‘s commentary and railing against the notion that institutions will be free and clear from the mandate’s clauses.

Vice President Joe Biden speaks during the vice presidential debate at the Norton Center at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky.

In a statement published on the bishops’ web site, church leaders sought to clarify Biden’s words about the regulation and its impact on faith-based institutions. Contrary to what Catholic leaders have been fighting against — even taking to the courts to try and prevent — Biden said during the debate that hospitals, schools and other religiously-affiliated groups — won’t have “to pay for contraception.”

“With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide,” he said. “That is a fact. That is a fact.”

The USCCB has come out strongly against Biden’s statements, claiming that they are not based on “fact.” Here’s the statement that the church put out in response to his proclamation:

This is not a fact. The HHS mandate contains a narrow, four-part exemption for certain “religious employers.“ That exemption was made final in February and does not extend to ”Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital,” or any other religious charity that offers its services to all, regardless of the faith of those served.

HHS has proposed an additional “accommodation” for religious organizations like these, which HHS itself describes as “non-exempt.“ That proposal does not even potentially relieve these organizations from the obligation ”to pay for contraception“ and ”to be a vehicle to get contraception.” They will have to serve as a vehicle, because they will still be forced to provide their employees with health coverage, and that coverage will still have to include sterilization, contraception, and abortifacients. They will have to pay for these things, because the premiums that the organizations (and their employees) are required to pay will still be applied, along with other funds, to cover the cost of these drugs and surgeries.

USCCB continues to urge HHS, in the strongest possible terms, actually to eliminate the various infringements on religious freedom imposed by the mandate.

The Catholic Church, faith-based colleges and even some businesses have sued over the mandate, showcasing the fact that Biden’s debate commentary on the matter is nowhere near as cut and dry as he claims. Based on currently regulations and a lack of specificity on behalf of the administration, the sentiment behind the bishops’ claims is correct.

 Faith leaders and free-speech advocates have also questioned the government’s new-found involvement in defining religious groups — something that they claim will inevitably result from officials‘ involvement in deciding which groups would and would not escape the mandate’s requirements.

Rev. Billy Graham endorses Mitt Romney

 

 

Rev. Billy Graham endorses Mitt Romney

Oct 11,

By KASIE HUNT

 

MONTREAT, N.C. (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney met Thursday with Rev. Billy Graham, and the aging evangelist pledged to do “all I can” to help the GOP nominee win the presidency.

Romney went to see Graham and his son, the Rev. Franklin Graham, at the elderly evangelist’s mountaintop home in the mountains of western North Carolina.

“Prayer is the most helpful thing you can do for me,” Romney told the 93-year-old Graham.

The meeting came just days after Romney told a newspaper he would not pursue abortion-related legislation as president. Romney later insisted that he would be a “pro-life president.”

The Republican candidate said Thursday that Franklin Graham, also an evangelical leader, had been helping his presidential bid.

“What you’re planning, what your son has shown me, is going to be very, very helpful. And I appreciate that. It’s going to be terrific,” Romney said near the end of their 30-minute meeting. A handful of photographers and a camera crew witnessed the exchange, though no print reporters were allowed to see any part of the meeting.

Romney adviser Mark De Moss later said Romney and Franklin Graham had been discussing how the younger Graham is doing everything he can “to encourage churches to encourage their people to get out and vote.”

The Republican nominee has faced some difficulty making inroads with evangelical voters, in part because some believe his Mormon faith means he is not a Christian. Earlier this year, the younger Graham expressed support for primary rival Rick Santorum, a Catholic. Pressed during an interview on MSNBC, Graham would not say that Romney was a Christian.

“He is a Mormon,” Franklin Graham said in February. “Most Christians would not recognize Mormonism … but he would be a good president if he won the nomination.”

Franklin Graham also apologized for refusing, in the same interview, to say whether he believed President Barack Obama is a Christian.

Some evangelicals have also been skeptical because Romney once supported abortion rights, a critical issue with the Christian right. This week, Romney told The Des Moines Register editorial board that there wasn’t any abortion-related legislation he planned to pursue as president. A spokeswoman quickly clarified his remark, and on Wednesday, Romney told reporters that he is running as a “pro-life candidate and I’ll be a pro-life president.”

The Thursday meeting with the Grahams wasn’t placed on Romney’s official schedule, though the campaign had for days planned a rally in Asheville, N.C., the resort town near the Graham home.

The trek to see Graham – up a mountain on a narrow road marked by one hairpin turn after another – is a political ritual. John McCain visited in 2008 when he was the Republican nominee. Obama also tried to see him in 2008, when he was in Asheville preparing for the presidential debates, but Graham’s poor health prevented the meeting.

The president visited Graham at his home in 2010, when the Obamas went on vacation to Asheville. Obama and Graham have also spoken on the phone.

At the meeting, Romney and Graham discussed religious freedom and religious persecution, Romney adviser Mark DeMoss said. DeMoss, who sat in on the meeting, said they also discussed the growth of Graham’s ministry in China, Sudan and North Korea. Graham also mentioned Romney’s father, George, whom the elder Graham considered a friend.

Romney told Graham the story of how his father died. “He was on the treadmill one morning at age 88 and he’s jogging on the treadmill and his irregular heartbeat caused him to faint and there was no one there to revive him and so he passed away,” Romney said.

North Carolina voted narrowly for Obama in 2008.

Obama to allow United Nations to tax Americans

It should come as no surprise that President Obama will raise taxes if he is re-elected.  But here’s the shocker: He will invite the United Nations to tax Americans directly.  And the proceeds would go directly to the Third World.  In this way, Barack Obama will, indeed, realize the dreams of his father.

In our new book, “Here Come the Black Helicopters: UN Global Governance and the Loss of Freedom,” Eileen and I describe how there is now pending in the U.N. all kinds of plans to tax Americans and redistribute their wealth – not to other Americans – but to other countries.  These taxes will not be like our U.N. dues paid by a vote of our Congress.  Nor akin to foreign aid which we choose to give.  They would be mandatory levies imposed by treaty on American citizens.  And, since they would be enumerated in a Treaty – not an act of Congress —  only the president and the Democratic Senate need be on board.  The Republican House has no role in the Treaty-making process.

(Of course, we do not believe that actual black UN helicopters will land in our midst to take over our country.  But we use the symbolism to warn that the liberal, bureaucratic elites in the UN, enabled by Obama and Hillary, mean to create global governance to override American self-rule and independence).

Here is what we say in “Black Helicopters” that Obama, Hillary, and the UN are planning for us:

A “Robin Hood” tax on financial transactions.  Every time you buy or sell a stock or a bond or exchange money while travelling, you’d be hit with a financial transactions tax (a percentage of your transaction) that would go to the UN.

A global tobacco tax with the funds to flow to the World Health Organization (WHO).

A UN-imposed tax on billionaires all over the world. And don’t delude yourself for a moment that it is only the 1600 current billionaires who will be hit.  Once the precedent of a UN tax on US citizens is approved, it will gradually grow downwards to cover more and more Americans.  Again the funds will go to the UN.

Under the Law of the Sea Treaty – up for Senate ratification in December of the lame duck session – offshore oil and gas wells would have to pay a proportion of their revenues to the International Seabed Authority, a UN-sponsored organization, which would distribute the loot to the third world.

A carbon tax on all U.S. or other foreign commercial or passenger aircraft flying to Europe.  Nominally to fight climate change, these revenues would also go to the third world.

A mandatory assessment to be imposed on the U.S. to compensate third world nations for the costs of reducing their carbon output.

These taxes are, of course, only the first steps.  Once the principle is established of UN taxation of American citizens, the sky is the limit.

Is there any organizations less worthy of our trust to spend our money wisely than the United Nations?  Beset by almost constant scandal, bereft of any in-house oversight or even audit, the UN is one of the most corrupt of all international organizations.  In “Black Helicopters,” we document how pervasive this corruption really is.- Dick Morris

THE LEFT IS IN FULL PANIC MODE AS POST DEBATE POLLS RELEASED. THEY BLAME OBAMA.

The Left is in Full Panic mode as polls come out.  Blame Obama.

I am bringing this information to you because I believe that God is hearing the cry of his people to stop the madness of Barrack Obama.   Here are the latest items that show panic  among the left and the Obama camp.

Andrew Sullivan of the Daily Beast is in full panic!

“The Pew poll is devastating, just devastating. Before the debate, Obama had a 51 – 43 lead; now, Romney has a 49 – 45 lead. That’s a simply unprecedented reversal for a candidate in October. Before Obama had leads on every policy issue and personal characteristic; now Romney leads in almost all of them. Obama’s performance gave Romney a 12 point swing! I repeat: a 12 point swing.

Romney’s favorables are above Obama’s now. Yes, you read that right. Romney’s favorables are higher than Obama’s right now. That gender gap that was Obama’s firewall? Over in one night: On every single issue, Obama has instantly plummeted into near-oblivion.

Currently, women are evenly divided (47% Obama, 47% Romney). Last month, Obama led Romney by 18 points (56% to 38%) among women likely voters.

Seriously: has that kind of swing ever happened this late in a campaign? Has any candidate lost 18 points among women voters in one night ever? And we are told that when Obama left the stage that night, he was feeling good. That’s terrifying.

With President Obama holed up in a Nevada resort for debate practice, things can get pretty boring on the White House beat right now.  Pretty boring for Obama too, apparently. “Basically they’re keeping me indoors all the time,” Obama told a supporter on the phone during a visit to a Las Vegas area field office. “It’s a drag,” he added. “They’re making me do my homework.”

I’ve never seen a candidate self-destruct for no external reason this late in a campaign before. Gore was better in his first debate – and he threw a solid lead into the trash that night. Even Bush was better in 2004 than Obama last week. Even Reagan’s meandering mess in 1984 was better – and he had approaching Alzheimer’s to blame.”

Scott Rasmussen said this morning: In the 11 swing states, Mitt Romney earns 49% support to Obama’s 47%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

This is the first time Romney has led the daily Swing State Survey since September 19. Until today, the president had led for 17 of the previous 19 days, and the candidates had been tied twice. This survey is based on findings from the previous seven days, with most of the responses now coming since Romney’s debate win last Wednesday night.

Forty-six percent (46%) of these Swing State voters are now “certain” they will vote for Romney and will not change their minds. Forty percent (40%) are certain they will vote for the president.

Pennsylvania and Wisconsin:

If this were not enough here’s news from Washington Times.  Dave Boyer of Washington times says Romney surges in Pennsylvania! Mitt Romney’s strong performance in the first presidential debate may have put Pennsylvania back in play, and closed the gap with President Obama in other battleground states.

A Siena Research Institute Poll on Tuesday showed the Republican nominee trailing Mr. Obama by only three percentage points, 43 percent to 40 percent, in the Keystone State. Other polls prior to the debate had shown Mr. Obama with as much as a 12-point lead.

“Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes suddenly appear to be up for grabs,” said poll director Don Levy. “Romney not only has Republican support but now leads in vote-rich areas outside of Philadelphia and also in the central part of the state. With a month and two more debates to go, Pennsylvania’s direction on the road to the White House remains in doubt.”

The Siena survey found 12 percent of the state’s voters undecided. The poll was conducted from Oct. 1 to Oct. 5; the debate took place on Oct. 3.

Meanwhile, the Republican also received a post-debate boost in Wisconsin, where a PPP survey found that Mr. Romney now trails the president by just two percentage points, 49 percent to 47 percent. Two weeks ago Mr. Romney trailed Mr. Obama by seven points there.

Keep praying.  Vote and get others to go and vote with you!

Why is this man still smiling? He has been caught lying at every turn.

Why is this man still smiling?   He has been caught lying at every turn.  He was completely destroyed by Romney in the debate.  He has failed at everything and I mean everything.  What he has done to healthcare is disastrous.  He promised an Arab Spring what he gave us is a nuclear winter of global Islamic jihad.   So why is he still smiling?

But wait!  Now  we have news of his most breathtaking irresponsibility.   He low balled his estimate for the deficit this year by half a trillion dollars!  To underscore how astounding this is the Washington Times said: 

“In May 2009, President Obama released his updated budget estimates, which projected that the federal deficit for fiscal year 2012 would be $557 billion. The Congressional Budget Office now says that the deficit for fiscal year 2012 (which ended on September 30) was about $1.1 trillion — or about twice what Obama said it would be. In other words, Obama’s estimate was off by more than half a trillion dollars.

To put this colossal error into perspective, at the time that Obama was elected, the United States had never once had a deficit as large as Obama’s error would prove to be. Our largest deficit as of November 4, 2008 (the day that Obama beat John McCain) had been $459 billion. Since 2008, we’ve now run up more than $1 trillion in deficit spending for four consecutive years, totaling more than $5 trillion.”

How can anyone bungle the economy that bad?  No one can point to a single benefit from his presidency.  Everyone will feel the damage of his arrogance for years to come.  Yet, there he is undeterred and unmoved.  Why?  Because he believes he is going to win no matter what he says or does.

He knows that he owns the vilest political confederacy ever inflicted on the United States.  His confederacy includes, corrupt unions, a compliant news media, Islamic leaders, foreign money and the most dangerous gang of all:  Americans addicted to government handouts.

 There are good signs however.   The debate broke the hedge around Obama.   According to John Nolte, “In 2008, President Barack Obama won the independent vote over John McCain by a margin of eight points, 52-44. This morning, a new Battleground Poll has Mitt Romney massacring Obama among indies by a whopping 16 points, 51-35.

Then he shows us the how the lap dog can media can still spin this in Obama’s favor. Polls:  “That’s a 24-point swing among independents since 2008, a group that makes up anywhere from a quarter to a third of voters, and yet Battleground still has Obama in the lead 49-48…?

But if I’m skeptical of those bottom-line numbers, our journalist overlords who have chosen to palace guard instead of question will declare me a “truther.”  The Battleground Poll also shows an 13 point enthusiasm gap in Romney’s favor. Only 73% of Obama’s supporters are “extremely likely” to vote, compared to 86% of Romney’s supporters.

Obama owns the vilest political confederacy ever inflicted on the United States.  His confederacy includes, corrupt unions, a compliant news media, Hollywood, Islamic leaders, foreign money and the most dangerous gang of all:  Americans addicted to government handouts.

I am as giddy as you that Obama was finally exposed before 67 million people for the incompetent leader he is but we still need a miracle.   Our nation is not facing a takeover; she was taken over 4 years ago.  We are fighting to get our freedom back. This election can be stolen and manipulated.

It will take the most intense effort ever.  Let every preacher understand that your silence and inaction at this crucial time will be remembered.   Under normal circumstances we should not be political, but these are not normal circumstances.  Obama will drive the church underground and he will turn America into a wasteland that is controlled by global powers.

What do we need to do to stop him? 

  1. Pray for the spirit of deception over the nation to be obliterated in Jesus’ name.
  2. Vote and take someone to vote with you.  Do not be afraid to challenge believers about their vote.  If they are voting for Obama ask them how that is possible.
  3. Talk to your pastor. If he is still on the fence respectfully disagree.  Remember the quote from Bonhoeffer “Silence in the face of evil is evil.  God will not hold us guiltless.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.”  Tell your pastor that you and many others will back him all the way.
  4. Understand that not voting is a vote for Obama.

Don’t be fooled. The debate was a big deal.

Don’t Be Fooled, That Debate Was a Big Deal

By Chris Stirewalt

Mitt Romney beat the britches off of President Obama in their first debate, including the devastating sound bite “you’ve been president for four years.”

It was the most-watched debate in 20 years and was the most decisive victory by a challenger in at least that long, but to look at the news today, you might be tempted to think it really didn’t matter.

Another month of essentially flat job growth is being trumpeted as just the comeback the president needed, with reporters, addicted to the top-line unemployment rate, freaking out about the fact that the measure fell below 8 percent.

(Power Play will spare you another lecture on the irrelevancy of this measure in a stagnant economy. The number to watch to know how people are really doing is the larger measure of those unemployed, underemployed and those who have given up work, which held steady at 14.7 percent.)

Certainly the very presence of an avalanche of favorable, if misleading, economic headlines will give the president a boost. And he certainly needs one given his botch on Wednesday.

The most effective spin from Team Obama so far has been that this kind of thing happens all the time – that incumbents always have trouble in their first debates. Why, just look at Ronald Reagan in 1984 and George W. Bush in 2004, they were off their game, came back and won.

While the long-term spin from Obama and his campaign is that Romney is a liar and a phony who only won by taking advantage of an incumbent too tirelessly committed to honest politics and detailed answers, the most urgent matter is to get the establishment press to minimize the importance of the president’s loss.

Some reporters were on that buggy right away, talking about the “debate curse” of the incumbent even before the first Big Bird Twitter meme had begun. The “curse” concept is picking up speed as is the expectation on the right and left that Obama will be back on his game by the time the two men meet up again for a town-hall debate at Hofstra University.

There is lots of truth in that. The president will come back strong and certainly there will be a phalanx of reporters there to say that the old magic is back and that Obama looked potently presidential.

The Romney Obama contest was the most watched first debate since 1980, when an estimated 80 million viewers watched the only contest between President Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan

But don’t be fooled into thinking that what happened on Wednesday was not a massive moment for the race.

Consider the margin of victory. The most frequent comparison for the Obama-Romney debate was that of John Kerry’s win over George W. Bush in the first debate of 2004. Certainly Bush did himself no favors by looking annoyed with his opponent and by muffing several answers.

Since the conventional wisdom holds that this election is a replay of the narrow contest of 2004, with Romney filling the role of doomed Massachusetts politician destined to come just short of victory against an embattled incumbent, the Kerry v. Bush comparison is like catnip on the Obama press plane.

But does it fit?

When CNN polled debate viewers about who won the 2004 match up, 53 percent said Kerry had won, while 37 percent said Bush won, the remaining 10 percent call it a tie – it was a decisive win that helped Kerry erase what had been a steady lead for Bush heading into the home stretch. It was the magic moment for the challenger who seemed headed for a big defeat.

How did Romney score by comparison? CNN’s post-debate poll this time found 67 percent believed Romney won compared to 25 percent for Obama, with 8 percent calling it a draw. Based on debate scores alone, the “cursed” Bush of 2004 looks like Daniel Webster compared to Obama.

What about eyeballs? More than 62 million viewers watched Kerry and Bush duke it out eight years ago. For Romney and Obama, it was more than 67 million, plus millions more watching online.

The Romney Obama contest was the most watched first debate since 1980, when an estimated 80 million viewers watched the only contest between President Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. This year’s mile-high smackdown was the most watched of any debate since the second contest of 1992.

And it’s that debate that may prove the most instructive for this year. That was the first-ever town-hall contest, pitting struggling incumbent George H.W. Bush against challengers Bill Clinton and Ross Perot.

That was the debate in which Bush, already tagged as out-of-touch, kept checking his watch as if to say “Are we done here? I have a government to run.” Obama’s grimacing, downcast look said very much the same thing, as did his dismissive tone toward the challenger. Voters didn’t think Bush the elder had earned a second term and wanted to see him work for it. The same is true for Obama.

You will see lots of stories suggesting that today’s jobs report will put Obama back on track. But Bush the elder actually had an improving economy in 1992, measurably better than the one Obama is lugging this time.

While media slant will help Obama make lemons out of lemonade at every moment possible, it isn’t enough to roll back what happened on Wednesday when Mitt Romney all at once became a plausible alternative.

With voters hungry for change in Washington, that’s a perilous thing for Obama.
