"Confession is good for the soul," said Mark Twain, "but it's bad for the reputation." Candidate Barack Obama in 2008 confessed to his top advisor, David Axelrod, "I'm just not very good at bull____ing." Actually, he was very good at it. He told millions of Americans that he believed marriage was "a sacred union" between a man and a woman. He answered about marriage in Rick Warren's question famed Civic Forum, going even further to say that "God is in the mix."
Four years later, he claimed he had evolved. We've all seen those Darwin fish with feet bumper devices. Evolutionary biologists assure us that it took eons for those finny friends to develop into land roving quadrupeds. Not so, liberal politicians. They can shed old convictions and promises quicker than fishes can shed their scales.

The recruiting efforts of Islamic terror group ISIS was dealt a huge blow this week after the hacktivist collective known as Anonymous hacked into hundreds of ISIS Twitter accounts and email addresses in a major strike called #OpISIS.
In a statement issued by Anonymous, the group which describes itself as "Muslims, Christians, Jews …" and said they "come from all races, countries, religions, and ethnicity" declared that ISIS militants are not Muslims.
"UNITED AS ONE, DIVIDED BY ZERO ... We Are Anonymous. REMEMBER ... THE TERRORISTS THAT ARE CALLING THEMSELVES ISLAMIC STATE, (ISIS), ARE NOT MUSLIMS!!!" noted the statement. more >>
President Barack Obama intentionally misled voters when he stated that he supported traditional marriage during his 2008 presidential election campaign, former Obama advisor David Axelrod claims in his new book.
Obama supported same-sex marriage when he was an Illinois state senate candidate in 1996, but claimed he opposed same-sex marriage when he ran for president in 2008.
"I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman," Obama told pastor Rick Warren at Saddleback Church in 2008, adding that he supports civil unions for same-sex couples. more >>
Someone recently remarked that Obama is a one-man sleeper cell after hearing about his National Prayer Breakfast remarks and refusal to aid Jordan against ISIS. Sadly, his remark could not have been more accurate. Obama patiently and silently planned, as one of many in an intentional sleeper cell, to advance in America what Islam is advancing worldwide.
Muslims have overtaken most of the ground on which Jesus walked, bled, and died, from Bethlehem to Nazareth to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. Muslims conquered Jerusalem in 637 A.D. Fifty years later, Muhammad's followers deliberately began building their "second holiest" mosque on the Temple Mount replacing what they believed was the Jew's holiest site.
Opposite the Temple Mount, across the Kidron Valley on the Mount of Olives, where Jesus sweat blood, was betrayed, and arrested, lies one of the most violent and dangerous neighborhoods in Israel. Ninety percent of terrorist attacks in Israel originate from this Palestinian neighborhood called Silowan. Indeed, Silowan is world renowned for its initiation of violence. more >>
President Barack Obama is expected to ask Congress to approve of new war powers aimed at fighting terror group ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Members of the House and Senate will subsequently be faced with the first war vote in Congress in 13 years, since the last Iraq war.
The Associated Press reported that Obama is set to make the request later on Tuesday, and will present Congress with a blueprint for America's continued operations against ISIS, which has captured several cities and executed numerous westerners, including Americans, on camera.
The last time Congress faced a war vote, it authorized in 2002 former President George W. Bush to use force against the Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein, who at the time was suspected of harboring weapons of mass destruction. more >>
As the world reacts with shock and horror at the increasingly savage deeds of the Islamic State (IS)—most recently the immolation of a captive—U.S. President Obama's response has been one of nonjudgmental relativism.
Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast on February 5, Obama counseled Americans to get off their "high horse" and remember that Christians have been equally guilty of such atrocities:
Unless we get on our high horse and think this [beheadings, sex-slavery, crucifixion, roasting humans] is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. more >>
