The Lincoln/Obama Two-Headed "Messiah"
by Al Benson Jr.
In 2009 Barack Obama (or whatever his name really is) will be inaugurated as president of the United States. There are still reported problems dealing with the truthfulness and accuracy of his birth certificate. In my humble opinion none of that will make any difference. They could discover that he was born in Pago Pago to an Indian mother and a Chinese father and they would still inaugurate him–because he shows a willingness to do the will of the One world crowd. Nothing else will make any difference. He is a thorough-going socialist, but as long as he is willing to sell his soul to do the bidding of the CFR/Trilateralist crowd
the constitutionality of it all is superflous.
2009 is also, by coincidence, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Abraham Lincoln, another socialist, and those who worship the "messiah" of big, collectivist government has been noting the similarities between the two men. Both came from Illinois. Both were the product of somewhat corrupt political machines. That’s one comparison most do not make but I do. If Obama was not born where he claims to have been, neither was Lincoln. There are those who strongly claim Mr. Lincoln was born in North Carolina and was illegitimate. I have seen written material dealing with this and feel it is a strong possibility. Lincoln, in his time in office, ignored the Constitution when it suited his purposes to do so. Author William E. Woodward in his book Years of Madness, on page 160, noted how Lincoln violated the Constitution when he increased the size of the regular army, something the Constitution says Congress is supposed to do. Woodward also noted: "Lincoln did not allow Congress to meet until July 4, 1861–eleven weeks after the war broke out. Meanwhile he directed the war himself, spending Federal money without congressional authorization–again in violation of the Constitution." It would not be the last time.
Mr. Woodward also noted Lincoln’s contradictions, particularly the ones about preserving the Union by not freeing any slaves or by only freeing some and leaving others in bondage if he had to do it that way. Then he gave us his "A house divided against itself cannot stand" speech, where a government that was half free and half slave could not endure. Woodward continued: "Lincoln was full of contradictions and they flowed from him as water flows over a dam, but he did not seem to mind." Of course he didn’t mind. He was the consummate politician and said whatever was expedient at the moment, depending on his audience. Whether there was any truth to it or not was totally irrelevant. I doubt it will be any different with Obama. He will say whatever it takes to further the agenda of his handlers. If he doesn’t he will find himself in big trouble with them. Remember Watergate? And these naive folks that think he will help out the "little guy" will wait for a shrimp to whistle!
It is worth observing that while Lincoln was in office he had many critics–some in his own cabinet, who were even more radical and revolutionary than he, and the possibility has been posited that some of these may have had something to do with his demise. However, after he had been assassinated on Good Friday in 1865 he assumed almost instant messiahship in the eyes of many. I saw a picture in a book awhile back of heaven opening and the angels descending to escort Mr. Lincoln into the presence of God. This for a man who was, at best, a Unitarian, and at worst a radical, Christ-denying freethinker.
Now there are comments arising out there on the Internet about a similar position for Obama. One article I read on a blogspot said: "Obama has not deliberately posed as a miracle-working Messiah who promises to cure all the ills for all complainants; that is how his supporters and most of the news media view him, but he is willing to meet them haflway." So where did his supporters and the media get such a preposterous idea? Somebody had to start that ball rolling. Yet another blogspot says: :"Barack’s appeal is actually messianic, it’s something about his aura, his spirit, his soul, that exudes enlightenment in the making…he is one of those individuals who communicates God-like energy…in whom you can ‘feel’ God." That from http://obamamessiah.blogspot.com The same rant says he is alot closer to "a Jesus type than the other candicates." And while they may not be blasphemy, folks, it’s gettin’ close. Remember Acts 12:21-23!
To be continued.
