Can Obama be trusted? By Femi Fani-Kayode

The
American Presidential election will take place in a few days time and frankly
some questions still need to be answered. I wish that Governor Mitt
Romney had put one of those questions particularly to President
Barack Hussein Obama during their last Presidential debate, which was on
foreign policy. Permit me to put that question here and it is as follows. Why
did the President bow so low before Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah four
years ago during his first state visit to the Arab
Gulf state and why did he feel the need to almost touch his toes with
his forehead when he did so.

 It is a matter of historical record
that no American President in the last 200 years has ever bowed so low
before any foreign leader, Prime Minister, Head of State, President or monarch.
It appears to me to be rather strange that Obama, on his first trip to the
Middle East as President of the most powerful country on the planet,
should literally prostrate before an Arab King whose country has an
abominable record on human rights, civil liberties, the rights of women
and religious minorities and where the system of government is a totalitarian
and absolute monarchy. Luckily a picture was taken of that celebrated
event and that picture really does tell us something about the American
President’s mindset. Yet it does not stop there.

On that same trip four years ago, after leaving Saudi Arabia,
Obama toured the greater part of the Middle East and Egypt and in speech after
speech, he apologised to the Arabs for American policy in the Middle East over
the previous 50 years. He did this despite the fact that in most of
those countries Christians, shia Muslims and ethnic minorities have no
rights at all and even though they have been killed, persecuted and
suppressed for many decades. Again he did this even though none of those
countries were democracies and even though all of them, except
for two, have refused to acknowledge the right of the Jewish State of
Israel to even exist. This left a bad taste in the mouth of many at the
time and the question that came to my mind was whether the ”Hussein” was
coming out of the ”Barack Hussein Obama” more than the ”Barrack” itself was.
Yet, whatever anyone may feel about the issue of his touching his
toes with his head and his bowing before the Saudi king, as far as I am
concerned, President Obama is not what he appears to be. There is far more to
him than meets the eye. A couple more questions will suffice to illustrate
this point.
Why is it that each time Barrack Obama is about to submit
himself for a Presidential election and seek a mandate from his
people, there is a raging, monumental, earth-shattering and record-breaking
freak of a storm, which kills numerous people in America? It happened
a few days before his Presidential election in 2008 and it has just happened
again a few days before his Presidential election in 2012. Again why is it that
on the first day of the convention of the opposition Republican Party, both in
2008 and again this year, yet another violent and dangerous
killer storm hit the towns in which the two conventions
were held, causing them both to be partially disrupted?
What is Obama’s relationship with the elemental forces? What is his
relationship with God or some lesser deity? What is his source of power and
what is his spiritual foundation? There is no doubt that he is a powerful
orator and that he delivers brilliant speeches that mesmerizes his
audience. Yet so did Adolf Hitler and we all know what he was.
I ask these questions because President Obama has supported
every anti-Christian and anti-faith policy that the American permissive state
has thrown up and endorsed in recent years. The violation and
literal denunciation of these religious core values, in my view, betrays
the unfolding of an illicit, dark, sinister and subterranean anti-Christ
agenda, which must be rejected by all true men and women of faith. They must
be renounced by every Christian, every Jew and every Muslim and
indeed all those that truly espouse the
noble values and virtues of any of the three Abrahamic faiths. They
must be rejected by all those that believe in the supremacy
and efficacy of a monotheic God whose core values and holistic
principles and standards are worthy of emulation and of
being respected and cherished. There are many examples of these
gross violations of our core religious values but permit me
to share just four of them with you here.
Firstly, President Obama has endorsed a woman’s
right to have an abortion and he has publically denounced ”the right
to life” of unborn babies. Secondly, he has endorsed same-sex
marriages. Thirdly, he has consistently supported homosexuality and
the rights of homosexuals and lesbians. And fourthly, and perhaps the most
disturbing of all, he has endorsed the right of same-sex couples
to adopt and raise children. Quite apart from these four, Obama has
also endorsed all manner of social perversions and deviant behaviour in
the name of humanism, ”new age” liberalism and the permissive American
state. No true believer or person of faith can possibly accept such
practices, endorse such values and still stand right before God.
To put the cake on the icing, let me make one more point. Rev.
Jene Robinson, a vocal and practicing homosexual, whose ordination as a Bishop
split the Anglican Church in America into two, was specially selected by
Obama to deliver the invocation of the name of God and prayers at the
beginning of the inaugural weekend of his inauguration ceremony as
President in 2008. What message was Obama trying to send to
America and to the world by insisting on this?
Outside of the area of social and religious values
President Obama has also failed in the area of foreign and
domestic policy. A few examples will suffice. The unprecedented number of
drone attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan which has led to record highs in the
number of  deaths of innocent Muslim civilians, women and children in both
countries. The alienation of Pakistan and Afghanistan as key allies in the war
against terror. The destabilisation of north Africa and the opening of the door
for Islamist insurgents in the north African Arab Sahel states and
the west African sub-region. The display of weakness and procrastination
before Iran and its covert agenda to build a nuclear bomb. The display of
double standards in the State of Bahrain and the over-pampering of the
Arab Gulf states. The sheer mess that has been created in Syria and the indecision
and procrastination of the Obama administration, which has abandoned the
opposition forces in that country even as thousands of innocent people are
being slaughtered by Assad’s brutal regime. The insincerity of purpose and
sheer coldness being displayed towards Israel and the indifference to
her dangerous and existential plight. The disdain and contempt shown to
all people of faith, the evangelical movement, the Christian far-right and the
vision of the old Pilgrim Fathers that founded the great country that is
known as the United States of America.
The removal of the words “God” and “Israel” from the Democratic
Party Convention. The disasterous handling of the American economy that has
acquired a five trillion dollar deficit in the last four years. The rise
of Islamic fundamentalism in Mali and Nigeria due to a shortsighted and
reckless policy in Libya. The taking of power by the
fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the rise in power
of Al Shabbad in Somalia and East Africa. The inexplicable refusal to
declare Boko Haram (the Islamist terror group that is bombing and killing
thousands in northern Nigeria) as a terrorist organisation. The gradual turning
of America into a quasi- welfarist state where ”big government” reigns and
in which the traditional engine room of growth that is known as the
American middle class is being systematically weakened and destroyed. The
desecration of the traditional family unit and good old fashioned Christian
values by the adoption of strange and liberal “new age” practices,
values and philosophies. The inability to protect the lives of American
diplomats living abroad and the lack of firm reprisals after the killing
of the American Ambassador and other Americans by terrorists in
Libya. The massive foreign debt that America has acquired in the last four
years. The huge quantum of cash that America is is now owing China and so on
and so forth.
These are just some of Obama’s disastrous legacies and sadly the
mistakes he has made in his foreign policy in north Africa particularly impacts
on us directly in Nigeria and in West Africa. Let me give you just one
example of that. Had it not been for the fall-out of the mess in Libya and the
brutal way in which Muammar Ghadaffi, the Libyan leader, was murdered in
cold blood one year ago, his Taureg friends and allies in north Africa
would not have been inspired and driven to take over northern
Mali and create a Taliban-style Islamic fundamentalist state there and
northern Nigeria would not have been flooded with jihadist foot-soldiers and
all manner of sophisticated arms and bombing devices for usage by Boko Haram.
With Obama, all we see and hear are beautiful
and inspirational speeches, a good deal of doublespeak, a failed
economic policy and a weak, dangerous and thoroughly uninspiring foreign
policy. Worst still, all we see in Obama’s African policy is
unpredictability, chaos, the appeasement of terrorists and
utter confusion. Given this, I cannot come to any other conclusion
than the fact that President Barrack Hussein Obama cannot be trusted with
America or indeed the world for the next four years. In my view, he is a
very mysterious, strange and complex man and sadly he has proved
to be a thoroughly disappointing President. Consequently my prayer is
that Governor Mitt Romney defeats him in the Presidential election, which will
hold in a few days time. If he does not I fear that the much predicted
“beginning of the end” of America as a world economic power may have just
begun.
With China on the rise, Russia waxing strong, Brazil,
India and Japan flexing their muscles and the European Union
finally beginning to take shape and find her feet, in the
next twenty years the world will be a very different place and America may
no longer be “prima inter pares” (the first amongst equals). Only Romney can
stop that downward trend. I am aware of the fact that, given
Obama’s ancestry, this may not be a popular position to take
amongst those of us that are people of colour and that are Africans but
nevertheless it is still my position. I may be wrong but at least I
have provided some food for thought.
Finally let us remember President Obama’s health
policy. This can be framed as follows- ”President Obama Vs
Revelations 13:15-18”. The US Senate has passed the Obama HealthCare’
bill into law. The implementation would commence on 23/03/ 2013.This bill
would require all Americans to be implanted with a Radio Frequency
Identification (RFID) chip in order to access medical care.The device will
be implanted on the forehead or on the arm. This is to fulfill the
prophesy in the Book of Revelation 13:15-18 concerning the MARK OF
THE BEAST! Anyone that has ears should listen. God bless America.
