Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Obamination: National Day of Prayer


 

Prayer addressed to the deity ought to be religious, not political in
its purpose.  In this case, Obamination has politicized that which
should be spiritual, turning prayer into a campaign pitch.

Proclamation — National Day of Prayer, 2012

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER, 2012

– – – – – – –

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

Prayer
has always been a part of the American story, and today countless
Americans rely on prayer for comfort, direction, and strength, praying
not only for themselves, but for their communities, their country, and
the world.

On
this National Day of Prayer, we give thanks for our democracy
that respects the beliefs
and protects the religious freedom of all people to pray, worship, or
abstain according to the dictates of their conscience. Let us pray for
all the citizens of our great Nation, particularly those who are sick,
mourning, or without hope, and ask God for the sustenance to meet the
challenges we face as a Nation. May we embrace the
responsibility we have to each other
, and rely on the better
angels of our nature in service to one another. Let us be humble in our
convictions, and courageous in our virtue. Let us pray for those who
are suffering around the world, and let us be open to
opportunities to ease that suffering.

Let
us also pay tribute to the men and women of our Armed Forces who have
answered our country’s call to serve with honor in the pursuit of
peace. Our grateful Nation is humbled by the sacrifices made to protect
and defend our security and freedom. Let us pray for the continued
strength and safety of our service
members
and their families. While we pause to honor those
who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending liberty, let us remember
and lend our voices to the principles for which
they fought
— unity, human dignity, and the pursuit of
justice.

NOW,
THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America,
do hereby proclaim May 3, 2012, as a National Day of Prayer. I invite
all citizens of our Nation, as their own faith directs them, to join me
in giving thanks for the many blessings we enjoy, and I call upon
individuals of all faiths to pray for guidance, grace, and protection
for our great Nation as we address the challenges of our time.

IN
WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this first day of May, in
the year of our Lord two thousand twelve, and of the Independence of
the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-sixth.

BARACK
OBAMA

our democracy

We do not have a democracy, our system is a
republic.  The passions of the mob are tempered by passing through
elected representatives who operate under The Constitution which
specifies the limits of their powers.  Obanination is not being
careless with the language, he is deliberately engaging in sedition,
undermining our system of limited, representative government.

respects the beliefs

Respect, like credit, must be earned, not demanded.
The establishment clause of the First Amendment prohibits Congress from
designating a national church.  The free exercise clause prohibits
Congress from unreasonably interfering with religious practices.

No sane & sentient person will respect a cult
whose mission is mercenary: the personal emolument1 of
its founder or whose methods are martial: genocidal2
conquest3
using terror4
as a battle tactic.   No sane & sentient person will want
to  be a citizen of a nation whose government arbitrarily respects
such a cult, deeming it  equal to Christianity.

embrace the responsibility

Obamination is mixing politics with prayer:
promoting Socialism; demanding that we submit to extortionate taxes to
support his fantasy welfare state.

opportunities to
ease that suffering

Not satisfied with National Socialism, Obamination
wants to expand it on a global scale.  Obamination wants the UN to
extort us too.

safety of our service
members

A worthy objective best promoted by sending the
descendants of Little Boy & Fat Man instead of bogging our manpower
in unending wars under suicidal rules of engagement.  If a war is
worth fighting, it is worth winning. If a war is worth winning, it is
worth ushering the enemy into Hell as swiftly, efficiently &
inexpensively as possible without wasting our own blood.

principles for which
they fought

The demagogue is attempting to re-write the Declaration of Independence.

“We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

If we had  patriotic Presidents instead
of  traitors, the war would be fought to terminate threat &
aggression against America and to prevent their repetition.  The
Second Barbary War was necessary because the lesson taught by the First
Barbary war was not sufficiently instilled & reinforced.  The
pirates regrouped, re-armed and renewed their attacks.
Muslims renewed their attacks in modern times because we have
demonstrated weakness and lack of resolve in Korea, Vietnam &
Somalia.

I searched the Declaration for the three phrases
listed by Obamination, but did not find them there.  The founders
realized & seized for us the right to live free and unmolested,
subject neither to attack nor threat.   Islam has another
idea, clearly expressed by the Dey of Algiers to J.Q. Adams & T.
Jefferson who asked him by what right the Barbary Pirates sacked our
merchantmen.

“The
ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the
Prophet (Mohammed), that it was written in their Koran, that all
nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that
it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could
be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and
that every Mussulman (or Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure
to go to heaven.”

When caliph Umar sent the Muslim army to Persia
centuries before the Barbary Wars, his General explained his mission to
a Persian General in similar terms.

Our Prophet, the Messenger of our Lord,
has ordered us to fight you till you worship Allah Alone or give Jizya
(i.e. tribute); and our Prophet has informed us that our Lord says:–
“Whoever amongst us is killed (i.e. martyred), shall go to Paradise to
lead such a luxurious life as he has never seen, and whoever amongst us
remain alive, shall become your master.”  Sahih Bukhari 4.53.386

 


  1. 8:1. They ask you (O Muhammad ) about the spoils of war. Say: “The
    spoils are for

    Allâh
    and
    the Messenger
    .” So fear Allâh and adjust all matters of
    difference among you, and obey Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad ), if
    you are believers.

    1. 8:41. And know that whatever
      of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is
      assigned
      to
      Allâh,
      and to the Messenger,
      and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad )], (and also)
      the orphans, Al-Masâkin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have
      believed in Allâh and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad
      ) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the
      two forces met (the battle of Badr) – And Allâh is Able to do all
      things.
    2. 8:67. It is not for a Prophet that he should have
      prisoners of war (and free them with ransom) until he had made a great
      slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. You
      desire the good of this world
      (i.e. the money of ransom for
      freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the Hereafter. And
      Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
    3. 48:19. And abundant
      spoils that they will capture
      . And Allâh is Ever All-Mighty,
      All-Wise. {Click through and examine the context.}
    4. Sahih Bukhari  Ch 61 # 2756: [Aisha Bewley]
      …It is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him
      and grant him peace, “My
      provision has been placed under the shadow of my spear
      , and
      abasement and humility have been placed on the one who disobeys my
      command.
    5. 3. The booty
      has been made Halal (lawful) for me
      yet it was not lawful for
      anyone else before me. Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331
    6. Sahih Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:

      The spoils
      of war were not made lawful for any people before us
      , This is
      because Allah
      saw our weakness and humility
      and made them lawful for us.

    7. while I was sleeping, the
      keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me
      and put in
      my hand.”  Sahih Bukhari 4.52.220
  2. 8:67. It is not
    for a Prophet that he should have prisoners of war
    (and free
    them with ransom) until he had made a
    great slaughter
    (among his
    enemies) in the land. You desire the good of this world (i.e. the money
    of ransom for freeing the captives), but Allâh desires (for you) the
    Hereafter. And Allâh is All-Mighty, All-Wise.

    1. 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh’s
      Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded manyof them, then
      bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter
      (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or
      ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its
      burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out
      Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm (i.e. are saved
      from the punishment in the Hell-fire) or at least come under your
      protection], but if it had been Allâh’s Will, He Himself could
      certainly have punished them (without you). But (He lets you fight), in
      order to test you, some with others. But those who are killed in the
      Way of Allâh, He will never let their deeds be lost,
  3. 8:39. And fight them untilthere is no
    more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides
    Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the
    whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides
    Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.

    1. 9:29. Fight
      against those who
      (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last
      Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His
      Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e.
      Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until
      they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves
      subdued.
    2. 9:123. O you who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are
      close to you
      , and let them find harshness in you, and know that
      Allâh is with those who are the Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see
      V.2:2).
  4. 3:151. We
    shall cast terror
    into the hearts of those
    who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allâh, for
    which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how
    evil is the abode of the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers).

    1. 8:12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the
      angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I
      will cast terror
      into the hearts of those who have disbelieved,
      so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and
      toes.”
    2. If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to
      strike fear
      in those who are behind them, that haply they may
      remember.

      1. 8:57
        1. Pickthall, Sher Ali,
    3. Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your
      power, including steeds of war, to
      strike terror
      into (the hearts of) the enemies, of God and your
      enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom God doth
      know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of God, shall be repaid unto
      you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly.

        1. 8:60
          1. Abdullah Yusuf Ali,  J.M. Rodwell
    4. That is because they suffer neither thirst nor fatigue, nor
      hunger in the Cause of Allâh, nor
      they take any step to raise the anger of disbelievers nor inflict any
      injury upon an enemy but is written to their credit as a deed of
      righteousness
      .

      1. 9:120
    5. 33:26. And those of the people of the Scripture
      who backed them (the disbelievers) Allâh brought them down from their
      forts and
      cast terror into their hearts
      , (so that) a group (of them) you
      killed, and a group (of them) you made captives.
    6. 59:2. He it is Who drove out the disbelievers
      among the people of the Scripture (i.e. the Jews of the tribe of Banî
      An-Nadîr) from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think
      that they would get out. And they thought that their fortresses would
      defend them from Allâh! But Allâh’s (Torment) reached them from a place
      whereof they expected it not, and He
      cast terror into their hearts
      , so that they destroyed their own
      dwellings with their own hands and the hands of the believers. Then
      take admonition, O you with eyes (to see).
    7. 59:13. Verily, you
      (believers in the Oneness of Allâh – Islâmic Monotheism) are
      more awful as a fear
      in their (Jews of Banî An-Nadîr) breasts
      than Allâh. That is because they are a people who comprehend not (the
      Majesty and Power of Allâh).
    8. Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:

      Narrated Abu Huraira:

      Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been sent with the
      shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I
      have been made victorious with terror
      (cast in the
      hearts of the enemy), and while I was
      sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the world were brought to me and
      put in my hand.
      ” Abu Huraira added: Allah’s Apostle has left the
      world and now you, people, are bringing out those treasures (i.e. the
      Prophet did not benefit by them).

    9. 1. Allah
      made me victorious by awe
      , (by His frightening my enemies) for a
      distance of one month’s journey.  Sahih Bukhari 1.7.331
    10. Brig. S.K. Malik wrote The
      Qur’anic Concept of War

      as a training manual for the army of Pakistan.  His analysis will
      help
      you to comprehend their strategy. Terror is both a means and an
      end.
      This paragraph comes from the bottom of page 59. [Emphasis added.]

      Terror struck into the hearts of the enemies is not only

      a means, it is the end in itself. Once a condition of terror into

      the opponent’s heart
      is obtained, hardly anything is left to be


      achieved. It
      is the point where the means and the end meet

      and merge. Terror is not a means of imposing decision upon

      the enemy; it is me decision we wish to impose upon him.
