David Barton of has come
out with a list explaining why Barack Obama is the most biblically

astonishing !

they “cling to their guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who are not like them.”

protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical

first time they have happened in four centuries of American history.
The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is
without equal from any previous American president

Claim: Social Security retirement payments are classified as "federal benefit payments."



Federal Benefit Payments

Claim: Social Security retirement payments are classified as “federal benefit payments.”



Example: [Collected via e-mail, March 2012]


Have you noticed, your Social Security check is now referred to as a “federal benefit payment”?

I’ll be part of the one percent, to forward this, our government gets away with way too much in all areas of our lives, while they live lavishly on their grossly overpaid incomes! KEEP passing THIS AROUND UNTIL EVERY ONE HAS READ IT…..


This was sent to me, I am forwarding it because it does touch a nerve in me.

This is another example of what Rick Perry called “TREASON in high places”!!! Get angry and pass this on!

Remember, not only did you contribute to Social Security but your employer did too. It totaled 15% of your income before taxes. If you averaged only $30K over your working life, that’s close to $220,500.

If you calculate the future value of $4,500 per year (yours & your employer’s contribution) at a simple 5% (less than what the government pays on the money that it borrows), after 49 years of working you’d have $892,919.98.

If you took out only 3% per year, you’d receive $26,787.60 per year and it would last better than 30 years (until you’re 95 if you retire at age 65) and that’s with no interest paid on that final amount on deposit! If you bought an annuity and it paid 4% per year, you’d have a lifetime income of $2,976.40 per month.

The folks in Washington have pulled off a bigger Ponzi scheme than Bernie Madhoff ever had.

Entitlement my butt, I paid cash for my social security insurance!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!!

Congressional benefits — free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call my social security retirement entitlements?

We’re “broke” and can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless.

In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile, and Turkey . And now Pakistan ……home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!

Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour Hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$’s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!

They call Social Security and Medicare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they give to other countries.

Sad isn’t it?

99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.

I’m one of the 1% — I Just Did.

Origins: It’s true that Social Security retirement payments are classified as “federal benefit payments,” but this terminology is not new: the word “benefits” has been applied to Social Security retirement payments since the Social Security program was enacted in the 1930s. The terminology is also not unique to Social Security retirement payments, as the phrase “federal benefit payments” applies to a broad class


of payments made to (or on behalf of) individuals under federal government programs — everything from Social Security Disability Insurance to Medicare to farm subsidies are considered “federal benefit payments.” The fact that workers themselves contribute much of the money that goes into the Social Security retirement fund doesn’t affect its classification as a benefit.

Likewise, the word “entitlement” has long been the standard terminology for payments made under government programs that guarantee and provide benefits to particular groups. Persons who have demonstrated their eligibility to claim such payments are entitled (i.e., “qualified for by right according to law”) to receive them. The usage has nothing to do with pejorative connotations associated with the word (e.g., “a sense of entitlement”) which are often applied to denote people expecting or demanding something they do not merit.

As for the calculations about savings detailed in the latter half of the above-quoted example, they’re far off the mark. Social Security contributions from individuals and employers combined have never “totaled 15% of your income before taxes”; the current level is 12.4%, and historically the contribution rates have been significantly less.

Wall Street Journal Sizes Up Obama


Street Journal Sizes Up Obama

A “deadly” article

regarding Obama, at the Wall Street Journal, which today is the most widely

circulated newspaper in America.

Article from the Wall Street Journal –

by Alan Caruba:

“I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he’s

led a kind of make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were

opened because at some point early on somebody or some group (George Soros

anybody?) took a look at this tall, good looking, half-white, half-black,

young man with an exotic African/Muslim name and concluded he could be guided

toward a life in politics where his facile speaking skills could even put him

in the White House.

In a very real way, he has been a young man in a

very big hurry. Who else do you know has written two memoirs before the age of

45? “Dreams of My Father” was published in 1995 when he was only 34 years old.

The “Audacity of Hope” followed in 2006. If, indeed, he did write them

himself. There are some who think that his mentor and friend, Bill Ayers, a

man who calls himself a “communist with a small ‘c'” was the real


His political skills consisted of rarely voting on anything

that might be deemed controversial. He went from a legislator in the Illinois

legislature to the Senator from that state because he had the good fortune of

having Mayor Daley’s formidable political machine at his disposal.


was in the U.S. Senate so briefly that his bid for the presidency was either

an act of astonishing self-confidence or part of some greater game plan that

had been determined before he first stepped foot in the Capital. How, many

must wonder, was he selected to be a 2004 keynote speaker at the Democrat

convention that nominated John Kerry when virtually no one had ever even heard

of him before?

He outmaneuvered Hillary Clinton in primaries. He took

Iowa by storm. A charming young man, an anomaly in the state with a very small

black population, he oozed “cool” in a place where agriculture was the

antithesis of cool. He dazzled the locals. And he had an army of volunteers

drawn to a charisma that hid any real substance.

And then he had the

great good fortune of having the Republicans select one of the most inept

candidates for the presidency since Bob Dole. And then John McCain did

something crazy. He picked Sarah Palin, an unknown female governor from the

very distant state of Alaska. It was a ticket that was reminiscent of 1984’s

Walter Mondale and Geraldine Ferraro and they went down to defeat.


mainstream political media fell in love with him. It was a schoolgirl crush

with febrile commentators like Chris Mathews swooning then and now over the

man. The venom directed against McCain and, in particular, Palin, was


Now, 3 full years into his presidency, all of those

gilded years leading up to the White House have left him unprepared to be

President. Left to his own instincts, he has a talent for saying the wrong

thing at the wrong time. It swiftly became a joke that he could not deliver

even the briefest of statements without the ever-present


Far worse, however, is his capacity to want to “wish

away” some terrible realities, not the least of which is the Islamist

intention to destroy America and enslave the West. Any student of history

knows how swiftly Islam initially spread. It knocked on the doors of Europe,

having gained a foothold in Spain.

The great crowds that greeted him at

home or on his campaign “world tour” were no substitute for having even the

slightest grasp of history and the reality of a world filled with really bad

people with really bad intentions.

Oddly and perhaps even inevitably,

his political experience, a cakewalk, has positioned him to destroy the

Democrat Party’s hold on power in Congress because in the end it was never

about the Party. It was always about his communist ideology, learned at an

early age from family, mentors, college professors, and extreme leftist

friends and colleagues.

Obama is a man who could deliver a snap

judgment about a Boston police officer who arrested an “obstreperous” Harvard

professor-friend, but would warn Americans against “jumping to conclusions”

about a mass murderer at Fort Hood who shouted “Allahu Akbar.” The absurdity

of that was lost on no one. He has since compounded this by calling the

Christmas bomber “an isolated extremist” only to have to admit a day or two

later that he was part of an al Qaeda plot.

He is a man who could

strive to close down our detention facility at Guantanamo even though those

released were known to have returned to the battlefield against America. He

could even instruct his Attorney General to afford the perpetrator of 9/11 a

civil trial when no one else would ever even consider such an obscenity. And

he is a man who could wait three days before having anything to say about the

perpetrator of yet another terrorist attack on Americans and then have to

elaborate on his remarks the following day because his first statement was so


The pattern repeats itself. He either blames any problem on the

Bush administration or he naively seeks to wish away the truth.


knock. Anyone home? Anyone there? Barack Obama exists only as the sock puppet

of his handlers, of the people who have maneuvered and manufactured this

pathetic individual’s life.

When anyone else would quickly and easily

produce a birth certificate, this man spent over a million dollars to deny

access to his. Most other documents, the paper trail we all leave in our wake,

have been sequestered from review. He has lived a make-believe life whose true

facts remain hidden.
