THE OBAMA REGIME STOKES THE FIRES OF 1776
by Miki Booth
(Aug. 30, 2010) — When Barack Hussein Obama spoke from his “bully pulpit” and proclaimed that America was not a Christian nation, he stirred the ire of a country and provoked its citizens yet again with a lie so outrageous as to be beyond belief.
At the end of the “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington on Saturday, many attendees left a little disappointed that they werenʼt told, where do we go from here? What was accomplished? Whatʼs the next step? When reading all the newspaper accounts of the event, people were further disillusioned with the negative reporting of the liberal media.
To many, the event itself was its own reward, and their faith in a good and loving God strengthened or restored. However, mostly we were there to show solidarity of a citizenry outraged at the destructive practices of a tyrannical government.
The “sleeping giant” is still in a coma despite reports that the TEA party movement has become a force to be reckoned with. Obama and his communist czars are perplexed as well with this phenomenon of a rag-tag collection of modern- day revolutionaries instilled with the spirit of our countryʼs founders ready to bear arms to protect life, property and our very liberties.
The “sleeping giant” is being deliberately prodded on a daily basis with outrageous actions by Obama and his “puppet masters” to get the giant to snap and create chaos and crisis to implement police and military action. No doubt Obama “got out of Dodge” to the safety of Marthaʼs Vineyard to watch a potential playing out of the plan they so persistently lay out with provocations. All the elements were there: mass numbers of white racists on one side and black militant marchers led by a race-baiting preacher on the other. If that wasnʼt enough to start a crisis they could pounce upon, they stirred the pot by adding illegal alien pardons, back-door amnesty and reporting charges of human rights violations to the United Nations. And maybe for good measure allowing the Mexican government to put its soldiers on American soil to protect their illegal citizens from hate crimes in a New York borough.
Try as they might, nothing happened, and now their heads are spinning wondering what went wrong. They donʼt get it now and they never will. This isn’t about anger at a black president. This is about Americans with honor in their hearts and a fierce desire to live our lives as free people. Glenn Beck provided the time and place for Americans to reaffirm their relationship with God, strengthen family ties and do what is right for America, and that is to take our country back from an out-of-control government that never errs of the side of decency.
There will be a million stories that come out of the Restoring Honor event, and unfortunately the liberally-biased ones will be most prominent. Two days later I still havenʼt found one that tells the story I saw, so Iʼm writing it myself. I watched the rally from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial looking at the back of the jumbo-trons and stage rigging along with thousands of others. From our vantage point we could see the crowd stretching all the way to the Washington Monument. Although unable to see or hear the program, we were happy to be there and share a spirit of patriotism for our country and pride of knowing we are carrying the baton of liberty passed to us by our founding fathers as we prepare to pass it for our posterity.
The media has chosen to bill the Sharpton rally as the more significant of the two events aimed at honoring Dr. Martin Luther King but fails to convey what their message was, so here I am compelled to describe what I saw. And that was a group of angry blacks and a few whites screaming, “Justice now! Justice now!” while we stood scratching our collective heads and asking, “Justice for what?!” Their marchers assembled on a street behind police solo-bikes and amassed an estimated 200 or so protesters. They blocked access to people leaving the Beck rally, and even though they shouted ugly epithets, no one took the bait. We politely walked through their ranks saying no more than, “Excuse me” or “Can I get through?”
There was the incident where paramedics were working on a person prostrate on the ground surrounded by crowds unable to disperse because of barricades or more people when a mounted policeman angrily rode his horse into the crowd yelling, “Make a hole! Make a hole!” It was evident to those witnessing this that the cop was not happy to be there. Was he having a bad day and taking it out on his horse by kicking him and jerking the bit around in his mouth or just being among people he didn’t like? His actions were entirely unnecessary and worthy of discipline. He wasn’t even needed – the paramedics were already there.
Other stories relate disappointments such as that it got boring or that Beck didn’t deliver. They were expecting a miracle or a revelation that Obamaʼs hidden records have been revealed and impeachment processes have begun or LTC Lakin was a surprise guest on the agenda and we could all unite in support and move forward with a cohesive plan to fight his court-martial and get discovery of documents for his defense. None of these things happened, and although Beck continues to gather followers, he continually loses those of us who recognize how he falls pathetically short of having the courage to bring up the question of eligibility.
As I stood on the steps of the memorial and looked out over the hundreds of thousands of people, I witnessed something extraordinary. I wasn’t quick enough to capture it on my camera but itʼs etched indelibly in my mindʼs eye, a v-formation of geese flying long and low over the reflecting pool from the stage toward the Washington Monument. Not a miracle by a long shot but a symbol of hope and direction.
The miracle happened but it was so subtle as to go almost unnoticed by most. I saw it, though, and thatʼs why I had to write my story. Glenn Beckʼs rally exposed Obamaʼs most outrageous lie. A million people came together and proved we are a Christian nation.
