Free speech allows arrogant, uneducated celebrities to open their mouths and speak their extreme liberal Hollywood pea brains. Free speech allows people on TV networks to attack conservatives and those who disagree with them, and even harshly misquote Rush Limbaugh to create a controversy. I guess they don’t use fact check. It allows them to spew secular progressive, anti-God hatred with their condescending, elitist, superior attitudes. Free speech allows the little peons in the Whitehouse to discredit, distort, and spin anything negative about the latest Nobel Peace Prize winner who by the way, accepted the award for not being George Bush. (The Nobel committee has sunk to a new low.) Free speech protects us all, um, unless you’re a Christian in a school or other public place. It even allows bitter blabbermouth Keith Olberman to call conservative Michelle Malkin a fascist, “mashed up bag of meat with lipstick”. Makes you love NBC even more, hey? On the other hand, free speech allows me the right to call dumb celebrities and TV hosts ‘sheltered numbskulls who are overpaid and don’t know what they’re talking about’. And please do not confuse them with the facts! It allows me to tell you that I think the Whitehouse is completely out of touch with the majority of Americans, and may not even know that there’s plenty of good land and patriotic people between D.C. and San Francisco. After all, while campaigning, Obama himself said that he has, “been to 57 states with a few more to go”. And almost every time gaff master Joe Biden opens his mouth the White house has to come out and correct, defend, or explain what he really said.
It’s nonstop campaign mode and PR for the most image conscious and overexposed President in US history. Another day, another magazine cover or two for the administration. Newsweek has Joe Biden on the cover proclaiming, “Why Joe Biden is no Joke”. They’ve featured Obama many times, and Time magazine has had him on the cover over 15 times already. My Mom canceled her subscription. Obama is also on this month’s issue of Men’s Health - his second or third cover. I canceled my subscription the first time. That was not a typo, a polarizing political figure is currently featured on Men’s Health. I guess puppet master David Axelrod will take what he can get, but you’d think with all the cheerleading and positive publicity that Obama can do no wrong, but that’s only if you’re uninformed, uneducated, or watch the main three networks, CNN, or MessNBC. The NY Times puts out 80% positive stories about him as it continues to decrease in circulation. These “news” organizations have the right to print or broadcast whatever they want and they’ll continue to do the president’s bidding. Free speech. But the White house is now banning Fox News, the biggest, most successful, powerful, and highest rated network in the world, not allowing anyone from the administration to be interviewed by Fox. This strategy may backfire on them. Other media outlets in America are either too scared to report the whole truth or they’ve been bought out by rich, corrupt people who influence programming in order to promote their extreme agenda.
Europe’s newspapers don’t have that problem and are increasingly more critical of the Obama administration. Last week, the UK’s Telegraph outlined 10 pledges Obama made on the campaign trail that he has already broken as president. Heck, even liberal Saturday Night Live is using their platform to remind the president that he needs to stay to the left and follow through on his promises. Right now, campaigner in chief, President Obama must decide instead of talk about Afghanistan, or we risk losing what he has described as the "central front" in our battle against al Qaeda. Charles Krauthhammer writes, “Obama's handpicked commander requested on Aug. 30 -- a surge of 30,000 to 40,000 troops to stabilize a downward spiral and save Afghanistan the way a similar surge saved Iraq. That was more than five weeks ago. Still no response. Obama agonizes publicly as the world watches. Why? Because, explains national security adviser James Jones, you don't commit troops before you decide on a strategy. No strategy? On March 27, flanked by his secretaries of defense and state, the president said this: ‘Today I'm announcing a comprehensive new strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan.’" What sickens me almost as much is the apathy and ignorance of many Americans, even those in the church who fell for the sugary rhetoric during the campaign last year. Halloween season is full of scary stuff and the 43% of voters who recently said they’d reelect President Obama is hard for me to believe. America has changed.
But some of us are not backing down. Faye Parrish said, “When Americans come together again, it will be to remove you from office. You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits and policy. We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you.” So why shouldn’t you and I speak up? I resolve to be undaunted in standing up for what I believe in and will speak to whoever will listen. Millions of others around the country are taking this battle seriously. Will you join us? I’m concerned about America, the church, and the radical direction the Obama administration is taking us. I loathe the media’s lack of integrity, journalistic standards, and lack of honest, unbiased news reporting. I see limitless double standards and hypocrisy in government and I’m not just going to sit around and hope for the best. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.” I used to think others with louder voices were supposed to get involved but that was then. There’s an eternal, spiritual battle for souls going on and there’s a physical battle for freedom in America. Our founders fought for it, great patriots before us fought for it, every solider in every conflict defended it. I admit I’m an optimist, but believe that together we can bring back Christian and conservative morals, values and influence. We need them in our homes, schools, at work, and maybe even in politics.
