Quickies: I Am SERIOUSLY Pissed Off By This Clown!

     I wish I could say “I can’t believe he really said that,” but we’re talking about Barack Hussein Obama here:

     Earlier this week, Harvard professor Robert Putnam did a Q&A with Washington Post religion reporter Michelle Boorstein, headlined "Have faith groups been too absent in the fight on poverty?" Here is Putnam's answer to that question:
     The obvious fact is that over the last 30 years, most organized religion has focused on issues regarding sexual morality, such as abortion, gay marriage, all of those. I’m not saying if that’s good or bad, but that’s what they’ve been using all their resources for. This is the most obvious point in the world. It’s been entirely focused on issues of homosexuality and contraception and not at all focused on issues of poverty.

     ....Putnam also recently appeared on a panel at the Catholic-Evangelical Leadership Summit on Overcoming Poverty at Georgetown University discussing this very topic with columnist E.J. Dionne, American Enterprise Institute President Arthur Brooks, and, yes, Barack Obama. The president himself joined in the mendacious chorus:

     “Despite great caring and concern,” [Obama] said, “when it comes to what are you really going to the mat for, what's the defining issue, when you're talking in your congregations, what's the thing that is really going to capture the essence of who we are as Christians, or as Catholics, or what have you, that this”—fighting poverty—“is often times viewed as a 'nice to have' relative to an issue like abortion.”

     Obama has been Christianity’s worst enemy, virtually since the start of his first term. He’s repeatedly turned a blind eye to the genocidal pogroms against Middle Eastern Christians and other Christian populations menaced by Islamic militancy. In every domestic case involving the religious freedom of Christians, he’s been in opposition to it. His “Affordable Care Act” hasn’t just increased the cost of medical insurance; it’s also severely increased the burdens on Catholic health care providers, especially Catholic hospitals. His administration has even persecuted orders of nuns that sought to be exempted from ObamaCare’s requirement that employers provide contraception and abortion insurance to their employees.

     But that’s only half of it. Pat Fagan and Rob Schwarzwelder have the numbers for you:

     Broadly speaking, American churches are incredibly generous to the needs of a hurting world.

     As noted by The Philanthropy Roundtable:

     “In 2009, overseas relief and development supported by American churches exceeded $13 billion, according to path-breaking calculations by the Hudson Center for Global Prosperity. (This includes not just evangelical churches but also Catholic and mainline Protestant congregations, and covers both direct missions work and donations to private relief groups.) That compares to $5 billion sent abroad by foundations in the same year, $6 billion from private and voluntary relief organizations apart from church support, and $9 billion donated internationally by corporations. The $13 billion in religious overseas philanthropy also compares impressively to the $29 billion of official development aid handed out by the federal government in 2009.”

     In 2012 alone, the evangelical relief group World Vision spent “roughly $2.8 billion annually to care for the poor,” according to World Vision U.S. President Richard Stearns. “That would rank World Vision about 12th within the G-20 nations in terms of overseas development assistance.”

     But according to Obama, Christianity is all about fighting abortion, contraception, and homosexuality.

     Why do we tolerate this man? Why hasn’t he been impeached and at least compelled to stand trial before the Senate? For being an arrogant asshole, if nothing else?

Simply, if somewhat crudely, put; You have to have balls in order to enact any sort of impeachment process/trial. This is the primary ingredient lacking in both the House and Senate.

Thos being the case, barring someone being elected to the next term in the Oval Office, has the stones to say, immediately following "So help me God"...MR Obama, you have the right to remain silent...."

The O actually spoke some truth there. What defines him is he always is willing to go to the mat for the whimpering collective as being morally superior to any individual including or Lord.
