Obama’s Mentor Was a Satan Worshipper, What Does That Make Obama?

Obama’s Mentor Was a Satan Worshipper, What Does That Make Obama?

Many of us know that Saul Alinsky, the leftwing guru of community organizers such as Barack Obama, had dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer.
Lucifer was the name of the fallen angel who rebelled against his Creator and so became Satan. In other words, Alinksy dedicated his book to Satan.
Worse than that, in a 1972 Playboy interview before he died, Alinsky so admired Satan he professed he’d rather go to Hell than Heaven. (See “Obama’s Mentor, Saul Alinsky, was a Luciferian“)
Reverend/Dr. James David Manning, of Atlah World Missionary Church in Harlem, makes a thought-provoking observation in the video below. He points out that, in his many years as a pastor, he’s met many sinners who had fallen away from God but also many who worship and praise God. But Manning had never met anyone who actually praises Satan.
So it is noteworthy that Alinsky openly proclaimed his admiration and praise of Lucifer as “the first radical…who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom.”
Here’s a screen shot of Alinsky’s dedication from Rules for Radicals:

Manning asks what does this say about those on the Left, especially the President of the United States, Obama, who admire and look up to Alinsky who praised and worshipped Satan. Are they not also Satan worshippers?
Sobering thought….

TOP US General: TREASON!! Obama and Hillary Funding, Negotiating and Arming Muslim Terrorists. Remember When You Vote Nov. 4TH

terrorist-dollars   By: Dylan
The Obama Administration’s scandals are so rampant that they are hard to name in a single breath, they are so grave that it’s difficult to pinpoint which of all is worst. Think about this when you vote Nov 4th. Did your elected official support Obama’s funding, Negotiating and Arming Muslims Terrorists?  Just recently Obama gave $212 million to the  Palestinians so they could rebuild terror tunnels on the Gaza Strip? Obama trade away five Taliban soldiers  who now join up with ISIS (for  an American traitor) while an American Marine hero who served two tours of duty ,  Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi rots away in a Mexican prison. This past summer  many Christians in Iraq were being slaughtered by ISIS terrorists while Obama was vacationing , golfing and fund-raising.  Is Obama incompetent, does deliberately want to destroy America or maybe both.  Thanks to Obama and Hillary Muslim terrorists are armed. If the Muslim Terrorists kill an American on US soil you can better bet it will be called work place violence and blamed on YouTube video.
There are a whole host of Muslim Extremist in the Obama administration…
Retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Tom McInerney, who served as both assistant vice chief of staff and commander-in-chief of U.S. Air Forces Europe, has surprised interviewers on a radio program by confirming the presence of the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic Extremist inside the U.S. government.
The Islamic supremacist movement’s influence on Washington was reported in “Impeachable Offenses: The Case to Remove Barack Obama from Office” by New York Times bestselling authors Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott.
The book documents that Obama aided the rise to power of Islamic extremist groups in the Middle East as members served on important national security advisory boards.
The book confirms the Obama administration may have exposed national security information through Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, who has deep personal and family associations with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Another key figure with Muslim Brotherhood ties is Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s Advisory Council.
McInerney was being interviewed Thursday by WMAL in Washington about a tell-all book by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates that strongly criticizes President Obama and Vice President Biden for making politically motivated decisions regarding national security.
McInerney said Gates was doing the nation a service by exposing decision-making in the Oval Office but said he should have done it sooner. He also noted that the Muslim Brotherhood influences have been causing major problems throughout the Middle East.
Then he added, “We’ve got Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. government today.”
Asked by the talk-show hosts for their names, he said, “I haven’t got their names exactly but there’s a list of them, at least 10 or 15 of them in the U.S. government.”
He cited the organization’s influence in Homeland Security and the secretary of state’s office under Clinton, where Abedin has worked.
“Her parents are Muslim Brotherhood. And her intuitions are in that direction,” he said.
“There are a whole host of people in this government.
He said Islam experts Frank Gaffney or Claire Lopez would have the details.
Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy, has created a publication called “The Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration,” which addresses the issue that was brought to the attention of Congress in July 2012 by Republican Reps. Michele Bachmann, Trent Franks, Louie Gohmert, Tom Rooney and Lynn Westmoreland.
The lawmakers asked the inspector generals at the departments of Homeland Security, Justice and State to investigate, prompting Democrats and Republicans to rush to Abedin’s defense.
However, as WND reported, Abedin worked for an organization founded by her family that is effectively at the forefront of a grand Saudi plan to mobilize U.S. Muslim minorities to transform America into a strict Wahhabi-style Islamic state, according to an Arabic-language manifesto issued by the Saudi monarchy.
Abedin also was a member of the executive board of the Muslim Student Association, which was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front group in a 1991 document introduced into evidence during the terror-financing trial of the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation trial.
The internal memo said Muslim Brotherhood members “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and by the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Lopez, a CSP senior fellow, wrote at The Gatestone Institute: “The careful insinuation of Muslim Brothers into positions from which they can exercise influence on U.S. policy began long before the attacks of 9/11, although their success has accelerated dramatically under the administration of President Barack Obama.”
She said the “massive Muslim Brotherhood organization network in the U.S., so patiently built up over the decades since that first Oval Office meeting in 1953 [with President Dwight D. Eisenhower], eventually gave it a prominence and (false) reputation of credibility that was unmatched by any other Islamic groups, moderate or otherwise.”
She said the Brotherhood achieved “information dominance” during the George W. Bush administration that only intensified in the following years.
“Not only did figures associated and identified with the Muslim Brotherhood achieve broad penetration at senior levels of U.S. policy making, but voices that warned of their true agenda (such as Stephen Coughlin’s) were actively excluded,” she said.
That information dominance has contributed to startling consequences, most evident in the U.S. policy toward the al-Qaida and Muslim Brotherhood-dominated revolutions that many call the ‘Arab Spring,’ but which in fact are more accurately termed an ‘Islamic Awakening,’” she said.
Under the Muslim Brotherhood-influenced Obama administration, U.S. policy has undergone such a drastic shift in the direction of outright support for these jihadist movements – from al-Qaida militias in Libya, to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and both al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked rebels in Syria — that it is scarcely recognizable as American anymore.”

Katy Perry’s Dad: “Katy Is A Child Of The Devil”

Katy Perry’s father, Pastor Keith Hudson, is now speaking out against his daughter’s sinful career.
Pastor Keith Hudson, the father of pop music mega-star Katy Perry, recently preached several sermons in which he has shown regret over the sinful and satanic influence of his daughter’s music on the young people of the world. The UK Sun obtained footage of a recent sermon in which Hudson called Perry a “devil child” and showed footage of her negative influence, exposing the sinful rebellion her music promotes.
“They ask how can I preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?” said Hudson of Keith Hudson Ministries, who admitted attending the singer’s sell-out concerts are a source of contention for him and his wife, fellow religious preacher, Mary Hudson. (source).

Joel Osteen: «Obama is a Christian, doing a good job»

Charismatic mega Church prosperity teacher Joel Osteen brands the US President as «A good Christian, who is doing a good job in a difficult time».

Joel Osteen and his wife
Joel Osteen and his wife
These questions came to mind while watching Joel Osteen and his lovely wife, Victoria, on CNN’s “Larry King Live” last week. King pointed out that many Americans are still confused about Obama’s religion and asked, «Does it matter?»
«Well, it matters to me,« said Osteen. «It matters to me that I know he loves the Lord, and I think it’s important that he has convictions from his faith. So to me, it matters when I’m making my personal decisions».
Mrs. Osteen weighed in, too: «It does. It matters to me. … I believe he is a Christian».
Source: http://www.worldnetdaily.com
My comment:
The Holy Spirit shall leads us into the truth, and all the truth. Joel Osteen is one of the leading global preachers of the false Prosperity Gospel. He can be seen on God TV, and on other prominent claimed to be Christian TV-stations.
This comment by the American preacher and his wife, makes me more sure about what I already knew. That both Obama and Joel Osteen is serving the same Lord. But it is not God of Bible, and His Messiah.
How can i be so blunt with Obama?
Well in Cairo, Obama spoke about «The Holy Koran», and branded Islam as a peaceful religion.
When Jesus walked on Earth, there was neither Muslims, nor a book called the Koran. The Koran is full of errors. It has deleted the Covenant people, the offspring of Isaac and Jacob.  In Islam, there in not place for Jews, nor Christians who claims to have been saved by a Son of King David, the Jewish Messiah Jesus of Nazareth.
If Joel Osteen was a Christian, The Holy Spirit would have told him to expose men like Obama.

Is his criticism fair?


Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haas recently unleashed criticism of Obama’s handling of foreign policy on Morning Joe.
Although he made the caveat that President Obama inherited a tough situation, he said the following when asked about Obama’s foreign policy decisions:

Advertisement-content continues below

“The short answer is not terribly well. In the Middle East, he inherited a difficult situation–but made it much worse. More than anything, the most consequential set of actions was of Syria. Raising fundamental questions in the region and beyond about American reliability. Letting a bad situation get worse. His best idea of his presidency was to pivot to Asia to put more emphasis there, but we haven’t done it. We decreased our diplomacy.”
Haas also pointed out in a piece in Foreign Affairs magazine recently that “American influence has diminished.”  He wrote that: “specific U.S. policy choices, especially in the Middle East, have raised doubts about the American judgment and the reliability of the United States’ threats and promises.”
What do you think? Has Obama made a mess of things in foreign policy? Or has he done about as well as can be expected given the circumstances?

  1. blank spacer Lawfully Admitted for Permanent Residence (LAPR) in the U.S., which includes"Amerasian immigrant" as defined in P.L. 100-202, with a class of admission AM-1 through AM-8;
  2. blank spacerGranted conditional entry under Section 203(a)(7) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) as in effect before April 1, 1980;

  7. A blank spacer"Cuban and Haitian entrant" as defined in Section 501(e) of the Refugee Education Assistance Act of 1980 or in a status that is to be treated as a "Cuban/ Haitian entrant" for SSI purposes.
In addition, you can be a “deemed qualified alien” if, under certain circumstances, you, your child or parent were subjected to battery or extreme cruelty by a family member while in the United States.

UNDER WHAT CONDITIONS MAY A "QUALIFIED ALIEN" BE ELIGIBLE FOR SSI BENEFITS?

If you are in one of the seven "qualified alien" categories listed above, you may be eligible for SSI if you also meet one of the following conditions:
  1. You were receiving SSI and lawfully residing in the U.S. on August 22, 1996.
  2. You are LAPR with 40 qualifying quarters of work.

    IMPORTANT: If you entered the United States on or after August 22, 1996, then you may not be eligible for SSI for the first five years as an LAPR even if you have 40 qualifying quarters of coverage.
  3. You are currently on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces or you are an honorably discharged veteran and your discharge is not because you are an alien. This condition may also apply if you are the spouse, widow(er), or dependent child of certain U.S. military personnel.
  4. You were lawfully residing in the U.S. on August 22, 1996 and you are blind or disabled.
  5. You may receive SSI for a maximum of seven years from the date DHS granted you immigration status in one of the following categories, and the status was granted within seven years of filing for SSI:

Once the alien obtains proper certification and is in possession of a T non-immigrant visa, he or she becomes potentially eligible for SSI.

EXEMPTION
FROM THE AUGUST 22, 1996 LAWS FOR CERTAIN NON-CITIZEN INDIANS

Certain categories of non–citizens may be eligible for SSI and are not subject to the August 26, 1996 law. These categories include:
    small blue and black arrowAmerican Indians born in Canada who were admitted to the U.S. under Section 289 of the Immigration and Nationality Act; or

Special eligibility for nationals of Iraq or Afghanistan: If you are an Iraqi or Afghan national who was admitted to the U.S. as a special immigrant, you may qualify for seven years of SSI benefits if you served as a translator/interpreter for the U.S. Armed Forces in Iraq or Afghanistan or if you worked for the U.S. government in Iraq.

WE NEED PROOF OF YOUR IMMIGRATION STATUS

If you apply for SSI benefits, you must give us proof of your immigration status, such as a current DHS admission/departure Form I-94, Form I-551 or an order from an immigration judge showing withholding of removal or granting asylum.

Your local Social Security office can tell you what other types of evidence you can submit to prove your alien status.

WHAT IF YOU HAVE A SPONSOR?

When you entered the U.S., you may have had someone sign an agreement with DHS to provide support for you. We call this agreement an affidavit of support, and we call the person who signs it your sponsor. If you have a sponsor, we generally will count his or her (and his or her spouse's) income and resources as your income and resources.
