When you think of the United States, and the gravest danger we face as a country and a people, what or whom comes to mind? ISIS, or maybe Iran or North Korea – since they all threaten to wipe the great Satan off the face off the Earth? Maybe it’s Russian aggression or the supposed climate change? Is it possibly the notion of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump at the helm – our failing economy? All well-founded reasons for concern with the exception of climate change which is a farce.
In this writers opinion the gravest danger to the U.S. comes from within the U.S., worse still, this threat occupies the Oval Office – Barack Obama. His use of Executive Orders and the much lesser known Executive Memorandum, (which carry the full force and effect of law) have been used to further Obama’s own agenda.
President Obama has had a clear and concise agenda since he took office, Obama ran for office on change we need. Obama has made many changes as promised – and not many for the good of the nation. Instead, President Obama has used his authority (many times illegally) to foment chaos through his changes; placing LGBT issues front and center, unilaterally overwhelming the rights and concerns of any others.
Look at the following partial list of President Obama’s directives concerning the LGBT:
June 2009: Issued a directive on same-sex domestic partner benefits, basically opening the door for same-sex partners to receive the same benefits as heterosexual couples.
October 2009, President Obama signed the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act into law, crimes against people for the reason of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity real or perceived are considered hate crimes
April 2010: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) now mandates that hospitals allow visitation rights for LGBT patients.
December 2010: The President signed the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010 into law – openly gay men and women may serve in the U.S. military.
February 2011 The Obama administration announced it would no longer defend marriage as being between one man and one woman. (Defense of Marriage Act)
February 2013: The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) issued a Directive pertaining to LGBT health care through the VA. Further there were postdoctoral fellowships established for LGBT health care.
March 2014: Department of Justice releases a new training module for law enforcement professionals who interact with and protect transgender persons who may be victimized by crime.
Some of the above actions do not seem that bad; LGBT folks should not be targets of crime anymore than the rest of us. That being said do you see how the stage has been carefully set to aggressively change the very fabric of our nation and culture to reflect the mindset of the few (LGBT) verses the majority?
Obama’s edicts are getting progressively more and more dangerous to our society. If a person identifying as any of the LGBT wishes to purchase a service/item from a business and is refused for that reason – said business may be sued and soon be out of business.
Now, the health and safety of the women in this nation is a very serious concern, as is the safety of our children in the schools.
President Obama has threatened to withhold federal funding from states that do not allow transgenders to use the bathroom of their choice – this is in essence blackmail. Who wants a man in the bathroom with their female family member many of whom have nefarious purposes in mind such as taking pictures and video? Recent events in the media involving Target are just the beginning.
Then there is the Obama Admin’s new rule for hospitals:
From Breitbart News:
The rule will require physicians, hospitals, insurers, and other healthcare entities that receive federal funds — such as Medicare and Medicaid — to include gender transition treatments and even abortion among their services for the alleged sake of “equity.”
If Obama’s ludicrous decrees for American hospitals and doctors was not enough, now Obama is reaching into the schools to create so-called equality for all:
May 20, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – For all the justifiable press coverage of Barack Obama’s federal guidance on transgender students in the public schools, its most dangerous provision has largely gone unnoticed – and it has nothing to do with bathrooms.
The most outrageous provision of his transgender bathroom order does not even involve locker rooms, where teenagers of the opposite sex will change and shower next to one another.
The most offensive part of the new policy is that, under the Obama administration’s federal guidance:
- School districts must allow biological males and females to spend the night together in the same hotel room on field trips;
- Colleges must let men who say they are transgender be roommates with one or more women; and
- School officials cannot even tell those young women or their parents in advance that their new roommate is a man, without risking a federal lawsuit.
My question is this: why is this outrageous and dangerous behavior not stopped? Congress could put a stop to this complete insanity – yet they do nothing. How is it that any of this can be viewed as progress? Obama should be removed from office for crimes against the people of this country, he is evil incarnate.
God will not be mocked: Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
And by extension so will our nation – wake up America!
