Obama: Any world order that elevates one nation over another will fail

In Obama, Socialism; Something that Pukes Me on June 4, 2009 at 11:28 pm

” Any world order that elevates one nation over another will fail.”

-Barrack Hussein Obama-

Uh, is it the same for any government that elevates itself over the people?

Some nations ARE better than other nations. There is nothing wrong in admitting that. Some are led by wicked deceitful men, therefore, it is never wrong to point that out.

Some nations still live in the stone age and they want to force the rest of the world to live like them.

And then there is America, a nation that pretends to be a godly nation and thus has elected a deceitful socialist who pretends to be Christian. Therefore, by electing such an individual, by desiring government to be your god, it makes us one of the worst nations on the earth.

His majesty Obama’s comments are nothing more than pushing towards the New World Order which will have the wicked in power.  He is helping to usher in the anti-christ; whoever it is.

Lord come quickly!

Obama makes everyone sacrifice but himself

By Benjamin Shapiro

Let us compare two historical situations. One took place several thousand years ago. The other took place on Monday.

According to legend, during the 13th century B.C., there was a Greek king named Agamemnon. He was bound and determined to attack and raze the city of Troy. When Agamemnon sought to launch his ships for Troy, however, the goddess Artemis sent a stagnant wind to stop Agamemnon’s fleet. Agamemnon responded by calling out his daughter, Iphigenia, and sacrificing her to appease Artemis.

Fast forward to last Monday. In announcing the bankruptcy of General Motors, President Barack Obama spoke directly to all those who would lose their jobs and their livelihoods.

“I want you to know that what you’re doing is making a sacrifice for the next generation – a sacrifice you may not have chose to make, but a sacrifice you were nevertheless called to make so that your children and all of our children can grow up in an America that still makes things; that still builds cars; that still strives for a better future,” he said.

Obama is fond of calling upon Americans to make sacrifices – or rather, he is fond of forcing Americans into sacrificing themselves at a time and place of his choosing. Heroic sacrifice requires volunteerism, or at least an element of extraordinary choice; Obama’s sort of sacrifice runs along Agamemnon-esque lines. He names the time and the place, and you are expected to put your neck on the altar.

Obama’s sacrificial ideology is particularly egregious because it targets minority groups who can do nothing to defend themselves. Obama targets the taxpaying minority, forcing them to pay for bank bailouts and auto gratuities while falsely promising that taxpayers will earn that money back (when do we get our checks?). He targets GM bondholders, the same folks whose retirement money has been keeping the ailing carmaker afloat; his new bankruptcy plan makes their holdings worthless. He demonizes Chrysler’s investors as “speculators” and attempts to portray them as villains in Chrysler’s demise. He forces banks to take TARP money, then defenestrates bank chiefs and caps executive pay.

It would be one thing if Obama expected all Americans to sacrifice equally. Clearly, however, he does not. He, for one, isn’t willing to sacrifice – he’s ready to spend $24,000 of taxpayer money to take his wife on a date to New York. And Obama doesn’t expect his allies to sacrifice, either. The United Auto Workers, whom Obama has praised for its “sacrifice,” now owns a majority of Chrysler and a huge chunk of GM; not coincidentally, UAW gave millions to Obama’s campaign. Obama refused to bail out California unless it revoked pay cuts for members of the Service Employees International Union; not coincidentally, SEIU gave $33 million to Obama’s campaign.

Obama’s self-centered idea of sacrifice – sacrifice yourself on Obama’s behalf, or he’ll sacrifice you – doesn’t stop at the water’s edge. America’s foreign allies are feeling similar pressure to sacrifice themselves for Obamemnon’s glory. Thus, Obama presses Israel to stop building new houses in Jewish Jerusalem while encouraging Palestinian Arabs to build illegal settlements within Jerusalem. Thus, Obama tacitly allows Iran to develop nuclear weapons and reaches out to the illegitimate mullahs while stifling any freedom movement within Iran. Thus, Obama allows China to violate human rights while offering them the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for their supposed work on global warming – all in order to entice China to keep buying our debt. Sacrifice, it seems, is only to be made by those who least deserve to make it.

There is one crucial difference between Agamemnon and Obama: Agamemnon led his troops to victory at Troy. Iphigenia was merely an innocent bystander used to accomplish his purposes. Obama, by contrast, is bound to lead America to ruin precisely because of the sacrifices he is forcing upon the most productive Americans and our most important allies.

Obama’s philosophy makes the sacrifice of individual liberty irrelevant to the broader communal good as he defines it. What we are losing on the Altar of Obamemnon is far more than a few bucks – it is the fundamental basis of free government.

Russian Newspaper: American decent into Marxism

In Socialism; Something that Pukes Me, Truth Speakers, Warnings to America on June 1, 2009 at 1:13 pm

Truth Speaker from Russia wrote the following article. WAKE UP AMERICA!

http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/107459-1/

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different “branches and denominations” were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the “winning” side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the “winning” side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more then a whimper to their masters.

Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motor) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

So it should be no surprise, that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “freeman” whimper.

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Franks, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

Civil rights: ‘Use ’em or lose ’em’

Civil rights: ‘Use ’em or lose ’em’
Columnist launches effort challenging gov’s redefinition of ‘terrorist’

WorldNetDaily

WND columnist Janet Porter is warning Americans if they want to keep their civil rights, they’d better be using them right now.

Porter in her newest column took on the issue of the recent “extremist” report from the Department of Homeland Security.

The federal agency’s report is called “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

It already has generated a lawsuit by talk radio host Michael Savage and multiple calls for Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to be removed.
According to the federal government, characteristics of members of the suspect group of people include those who:

Oppose restrictions on firearms

Oppose lax immigration

Oppose the policies of President Obama regarding immigration, citizenship and the expansion of social programs

Oppose continuation of free trade agreements

Oppose same-sex marriage

Has paraonia of foreign regimes

Fear Communist regimes

Oppose one world government

Bemoan the decline of U.S. stature in the world

Is upset with the loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India
Porter wrote, “The only way we can keep our freedoms is if we’ll use them – now.”

“One thing’s for sure – we aren’t going to stand by while they profile good, law-abiding citizens as terrorists and take away constitutional freedoms,” she wrote.

“Therefore, we, the law-abiding citizens of America, demand:

“The resignation or removal of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano for her partisan political profiling of veterans and conservatives and her abuse of power.

“An apology from President Barack Obama to ALL Americans for his administration’s call for domestic spying.

“The immediate retraction of the “Rightwing Extremism” report for labeling law-abiding citizens as “terrorists” because of their political views.”

“If you’d like to help sound the alarm before you’re monitored as a potential terrorist, please help. Go to http://www.f2a.org and click the first blinking alert to fight “hate crimes” and click the link to http://www.NoPoliticalProfiling.com to help us place a newspaper ad and sign the petition to fight the new definition of “terrorist,” she said.

“DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has labeled law-abiding citizens as ‘right-wing extremists’ and potential ‘terrorists’ … and has instructed state and local law enforcement to monitor, investigate and ‘report information concerning suspicious or criminal activity to DHS and the FBI,'” she wrote.

Under the DHS plan, she said, among those who would be listed as terrorists would be:

George Washington (military veteran and gun owner)
Mother Teresa (pro-life)
Ronald Reagan (pro-life and staunch advocate for less government), and
The pope (supports life and traditional marriage)

2 Socialists for price of 1?

Michelle Obama’s ‘give up piece of pie’ remark invokes Marxism

http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=79977

While Sen. Barack Obama has caught flak for his socialist-sounding remarks about “spreading the wealth around,” his wife’s own Marxist-tinged rhetoric has gone largely unnoticed.

During an April campaign stop in Harrisburg, N.C., Michelle Obama spoke with a group of about 50 working moms who were having a hard time making ends meet, including some who complained about health-care benefits. Obama said the rich would have to start giving up more income to pay for health care for everybody.

“The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more,” Obama said.

Her remark, quoted by the Charlotte Observer, did not make national news. In fact, a search of the Nexis database of media citations turned up a total of just five references to the remark in periodicals, wire services, broadcasts and newspapers, including the Observer.

Mrs. Obama’s pie metaphor did not sit well with many residents of Charlotte.

“Michelle Obama says enacting universal health care will mean ‘someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.’ I find that attitude worrisome. If my neighbor’s possessions are better than mine, am I entitled to take his property so that we’re equally furnished?” asked Brooke S. Dickson of Charlotte. “I shudder at how big a slice of the pie Ms. Obama and her husband have in mind.”

Barack Obama, meanwhile, has called for “major redistributive change.” Critics say both Obamas believe the American economy is a fixed quantity, like a pie, in which the rich get richer at the expense of others, and it’s up to government to redistribute wealth to bring about “fairness” in the system. Economists call such thinking “zero-sum economics,” a central tenet of Marxism, which believes capitalism breeds classism and static economic stations.

Redistributing wealth is “a principle as basic as apple pie,” Sen. Obama told ABC News anchor Charlie Gibson.

However, GDP figures showing dynamic growth in the overall U.S. economy refute the notion of finite wealth. And Federal Reserve income data defy notions of a fixed class system in America.

A recent Treasury Department study examining such data found considerable income mobility of individuals in the U.S. economy from 1996 to 2005, with more than half of taxpayers moving to a different income quintile over the period. In fact, roughly half of taxpayers who began in the bottom income quintile in 1996 moved up to a higher income group by 2005, while many of the richest fifth slid to lower income groups.

Get “The Audacity of Deceit,” and learn about the looming hostile attack on Judeo-Christian values and freedoms Americans hold dear

Overall, economic growth resulted in rising incomes for most taxpayers over the 10-year period.

“If my real income does not fall, how am I hurt when Bill Gates makes another billion dollars?” asked economist Bruce Bartlett, a critic of higher taxes on the rich. “We don’t want to be equally poor.”

Sen. Obama argues that wealth does not “trickle down” when taxes are cut at the top. But his critics say his plan to soak the rich, particularly in a recession, will only result in “trickle-up poverty.”

Unlike Bill Clinton, Obama has not presented himself and his wife as a buy-one-get-one-free proposition. The Clintons were criticized for operating a co-presidency.

However, Michelle Obama has strong views and like her husband is a trained lawyer.

She drew criticism earlier in the year when she said on the stump that, “For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country,” before adding “really proud” later on.

Then she damned business as “the money-making industry” and encouraged young people to go into “the helping industry” like she and her husband did.

Visiting a day-care center in Zanesville, Ohio, the would-be first lady advised the women there not to “go into corporate America.”

“Become teachers,” she counseled. “Work for the community. Be social workers.”

“Those are the careers we need,” she added. “And we’re encouraging our young people to do that. But if you make that choice, as we did, to move out of the moneymaking industry into the helping industry, then your salaries respond.”

Actually, Mrs. Obama made plenty of money in the private sector, or “money-making industry,” as she calls it. She received 7,500 in stock options worth $72,375 last year from Treehouse Foods, whose biggest customer is Wal-Mart. And she earned $51,200 as a Treehouse board director – on top of the more than $300,000 a year she banks as “vice president of community and external affairs” for the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Sen. Obama, meanwhile, has earned millions from his books. The couple donates less than 1 percent of their income to charity.

Conservative Hippie>>>[Amazing to me how the elite can expect and demand that we give up our “piece of the pie” to those who do nothing and when they themselves only give less than 1 percent of their income to charity.]

Socialist Thieves Want Your Money!

In Socialism; Something that Pukes Me on November 10, 2008 at 2:48 pm

People, this should make your blood boil! Forgive me for what I’m about to say but, WHO the hell does this man think he is?! 

Video at the bottom. Transcript here:

“In the past seven years we have had the highest corporate profit, the highest productivity. The American worker has produced more per person than anytime. But it hasn’t been shared. And that’s the problem. Because we have been guided by a Republican administration who believes in the simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitiled to keep it. And they have an entiphy towards a means to redrisbuting wealth. And they may be able to sustain that for a while but it doesn’t work in the long run.” 

People, this is nothing more than government wanting to STEAL what you have rightfully worked and sweated your butt off for! The arrogance of this man to dare make light of what we believe, to call it a simplistic notion that people who have wealth are entitled to keep it.

You are damn right we think we are entitled to keep it! We worked for it and it is ours! Who–the–hell do you think you are Jim Moran? To even question us who have supported the rest of the nation all these years? Who do you think you are? How DARE you to look at hard working people like this! How dare you!

He even admits the past seven years have been productive. So what is his frikkin problem?! Democrats can not stand success, people. They thrive off weaknesses and instabilities. THAT is what empowers them. They are leeches. Blood thirsty leeches who love to see your demise. Your demise makes them strong. Don’t you see it? If they can weaken everything and everybody around them, they are able to come into more power. That is socialism! Simple as that!  

See how angry he is? Well, he is not the only one who is allowed to be angry. Understand? He is not the only one. This ought to make anyone who has scrimped and saved and made it on their own angry as hell. Because you see, this kind of ungodly government does not care if you work hard. Just as long as they can get their thieving paws on what is yours and give it to someone who did not support themselves. They do not care if you are putting yourself through college by working two jobs. They do not care if you are buying your own health care. They do not care if you are able to make your house payments. They simply do not care. They aim to make an example of you, get it? BECAUSE you have not needed them. They despise you. They despise your success and they aim to bring you down to the level they are the most influential. And that is at the bottom. RESIST THESE PEOPLE! RESIST!

Has this nation forgotten that our immigrants came here for the sole purpose of freedom? Have we forgotten one reason the immigrants came here was to get away from kings who thought they had the right to lord over people? Have these socialist pigs that sit in Washington forgotten that they work for us?! Whose backs was this great nation built upon? Decent hard working Americans built this nation. NOT politicians! And don’t you ever forget it! Who the hell is this Socialist pig and others like him, to tell us we are not entitled to keep what we worked for?! Who do they think they are?! Unbelievable! Their arrogance disgusts and pukens me.

RESIST THESE PEOPLE! RESIST!

I’m changing as fast as I can!

In Socialism; Something that Pukes Me, Warnings to America on November 9, 2008 at 7:18 pm

By: Patrice Lewis

Well, on the bright side, there were no riots in the streets following Tuesday’s election. This is good.

On the other hand, Obama got elected president. We also have a Democrat majority in the Senate. Therefore, we must prepare to “change.” This is bad.

I truly believe we are heading into one of the most divisive times in our nation’s history, and it won’t have anything to do with skin color. (How tired I am of hearing that argument.) It will have everything to do with socialism vs. free-market economics. Dependence vs. independence.

During a recent history lesson with my homeschooled daughters, we discussed some of the highlights of ancient Greek civilization and its contributions to our current culture. I told the girls about Hippocrates and the Hippocratic oath, a portion of which can be summed up as “First, do no harm.”

Maybe this could apply to the Obama administration. First, do not harm us.

Unfortunately, new presidents merely take an oath to support and defend the Constitution, and we all know how well that oath is fulfilled. So a plea to “do no harm” will undoubtedly fall on deaf ears.

By implication, we can assume that the “changes” that will be forced upon us in the next four years will harm us. More than ever before, now is the time to cultivate personal independence – or as much as you can in our fettered condition. The less you need the government, the more you weaken it. The more dependent you are on government, the more power it has.

It was Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas (1939-1975) who said, “The right to be left alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom.” Keep that in mind as you consider the following suggestions.

Prepare to hunker down. Interpret this as you will.

If you have any, hide your money – otherwise it will be spread around. The best way to spread your own wealth on your own terms is to hire people to work for you. But of course, you knew that already.

Take your kids out of public school. Schools are going to become nothing but Marxist pressure cookers. They’re already socialist indoctrination centers. Have you any idea what they’re teaching in kindergarten these days, much less high school? Better find out.

If you’re Joe the Plumber, hide. Quickly. Otherwise your life for the next four years will be a living hell. Obama supporters have demonstrated they like to retaliate, so you’re not safe.

Buy guns and ammunition. Especially ammunition. The tools necessary for self-defense and to keep our government under at least a modicum of control are going to quickly become unavailable. Perhaps not banned outright – that would cause riots – but the taxes on these tools of self-reliance will be raised so high that the effect will be the same.

Don’t surrender to guilt. Opposing the new world order coming your way is not selfish. The “best interests of all” are code words for state slavery. “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs” is the death of liberty and the definition of Marxism. Duh.

Stockpile some resources, because it’s only a matter of time before our terrorist enemies (who are delighted with the outcome of the election) will launch something nasty our way. Terrorists love weak or untried rulers because they prefer to strike vulnerable targets. We just bared our throats.

Move. Whatever your political affiliation, it’s always best to live in a place with like-minded people. (Idaho might be worth considering.) Just make sure the place you move to has people whose concepts of liberty agree with yours.

Start looking for other news sources, because it’s very likely that your favorite conservative radio talk-show host will go out of business once the (ahem) “Fairness” Doctrine gets re-implemented.

Buy light bulbs. There is no possible way our new green president will lift the absurd imminent ban on incandescent light bulbs. Unless you want your home to look like the inside of a train station lavatory in 2012, you’d better stock up on incandescents while you can. (Obviously lights bulbs are a metaphor for all the “for your own good” changes that will be shoved upon us.)

Go to church. All the morals and values that we once cherished in this country – traditional marriage, sanctity of life, family values – are going to become so condemned that churches will be our only sanctuaries.

Conservative Hippie>>>[Even here be cautious on where you go to church. Such devotion of Obama will be on the rise that you will not know who your true friends are.]

Strengthen your family, your community, your state. Obama has said that an economy is built from the bottom up. In that he is entirely wrong (poor people don’t hire – only rich people do that). But liberty most certainly IS built from the bottom up. Start by strengthening yourself. Next, your family. Support your neighbors. Build your community. Get involved with your state. The days of sitting on your hands must be over.

Find another job. Or preferably, several. Don’t give up your current job, of course, but as the economy continues to nosedive, it is best to cultivate your marketable skills and diversify your income sources. The more income irons you have in the fire, the better.

Never never never never trust that the upcoming administration will do anything in your best interest. If the government offers you something that seems too good to be true, assume that it is. Education, medical care, housing and other benefits are never free – they cost something down the line. And the cost is always freedom. Take warning.
Obviously this list barely scratches the surface. If you use your head, you can think of many more. But better hurry up. Change is coming, like it or not.

But the thing about “change” is that it can work both ways. The ordinary Joe Plumbers of this country can change, too – and it may not be in the direction the government will like.

Tough patooties.

Hamas praises Obama win as ‘historic victory for world’
Terrorists drafting letter of congrats to be sent directly to president-elect

By Aaron Klein
© 2008 WorldNetDaily

 

JERUSALEM – The Hamas terrorist group believes the election of Sen. Barack Obama is an “historic victory” for the world and an opportunity to change U.S. foreign policy toward engagement with America’s foes, Ahmed Yousef, Hamas’ chief political adviser in the Gaza Strip, told WND in an exclusive interview today.

Yousef, speaking by cell phone from Gaza, said Hamas is drafting a letter of congratulation to be sent tomorrow directly to Obama. He said the current draft of the letter praises the president-elect as “another John F. Kennedy, or great Roosevelt.”

“We want to be one of the first to congratulate him,” Yousef said.

“This is an historic day, a turning point. I think this is the very first time in history that one country’s election concerned everyone everywhere all over [the] world,” said Yousef. “Everybody is looking forward to Obama’s change, for a change in the U.S. policy, particularly in the Israeli-Palestinian equation, which is the mother of all conflicts.”

Yousef told WND he believes an Obama administration will be more willing to engage in dialogue with Hamas.

He said Obama’s job will be to “restore America’s dignity in the world and put an end to the wars in the region.”

Yousef took the occasion to blast the policies of President Bush, commenting he hopes “that after January the Bush administration will not be heard from again.”

“We are sick of wars and conflict,” the Hamas official said.

Yousef seemed aware his comments and Hamas’ expected letter to Obama may generate some negative publicity for Obama, but he said he feels it important to “reach out and to express our thoughts and engage.”

“I praised him six months ago, some people tried to use that against him. But I knew he would win. Like everyone else, we expected this important victory,” he said.

Yousef was referring to an interview he gave to WND and WABC Radio in April in which he praised Obama and then found his comments had fueled a firestorm of accusations in the presidential campaign.

In April, Yousef stated he hoped Obama would become president and compared the Illinois senator to President John F. Kennedy.

“We like Mr. Obama, and we hope that he will win the election,” Yousef told WND at the time.

“I hope Mr. Obama and the Democrats will change the political discourse. … I do believe [Obama] is like John Kennedy, a great man with a great principle. And he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community, but not with humiliation and arrogance,” Yousef said.

Sen. John McCain repeatedly used Yousef’s remarks to criticize Obama’s foreign policy.

Obama has condemned Hamas as a terrorist group that should be isolated until it recognizes Israel. He claimed McCain was using the Hamas comments as a “smear.”

Hamas is responsible for scores of suicide bombings, rocket attacks, shootings and cross-border raids. Its official charter calls for the murder of Jews and destruction of Israel. Just today, Hamas members took responsibility for launching dozens of rockets from Gaza aimed at Jewish civilian population centers.
