Is the White House Using ‘Unlawful’ Propaganda?

Oh wait...that's his index finger...but pictures DO say a thousand words

According to Human Events, (you know, one of those right-wing, conservative papers), there are some serious questions with respect to the Obama Administration’s use of federal funds for potentially illegal purposes.

A report has just been made public from the House Oversight and Government Reform Republicans that “exposes unlawful use of taxpayer funding by the Obama Administration for public relations and propaganda initiatives nothing, ‘The first year of this administration, there was the appearance that the White House is using federal resources to run a four-year campaign for the presidency in 2012’.” [1]

The report goes on to say that “Rep. Darrel Issa (R.-Calif.), top Republican on the committee, released ‘Analysis of the First Year of the Obama Administration: Public Relations and Propaganda Initiatives’.” [2]  Sounds like a report I would like to read.  You should too.

The report addresses a number of concerns with the way the Obama Administration has allegedly misused taxpayer dollars to essentially fund his own run for re-election.  It includes some very potentially harmful information that could derail Obama’s second stint as president of the United States.

The report said that the Obama White House is using two basic types of propaganda activities to promote Obama’s agenda:

  • misusing the resources of federal agencies to publicize the President’s agenda, and
  • multiplying traffic to websites containing propaganda by capitalizing on the visibility of the President

The 37-page report also details multiple administration public relations programs initiated since Jan. 20, 2009, that violate various prohibitions on federally financed propaganda, including:

  • Justice Department hired a ‘News Media Specialist’ to surf the web and anonymously post attacks on authors of unfavorable subjects
  • An Education Department deputy assistant secretary disseminated an e-mail outlining Obama’s government takeover of student loans and directing recipients to ‘communicate the merits of the President’s proposal with your members and other audiences.’
  • Extensive coordination with the National Endowment of the Arts to create propaganda items to support Obama initiatives
  • Health and Human Services Department (HHS) hired a healthcare economist (paid $300,000) to advocate Obama programs in direct violation of appropriations restrictions and without media disclosures
  • Obama Health Reform Czar used White House ‘messages.whitehouse.gov’ domain e-mail this year to disseminate partisan Obama-care support e-mail imploring recipients in the federal workforce to ‘help raise awareness by sharing this e-mail with your friends, family and online networks.’ (Because these e-mails were sent from an official White House email address, several career federal employees at the U.S. Department of State received them to take some sort of action to further the President’s agenda, CBS News reported).
  • Unlawful HHS ads and website activity
  • White House promotion of websites designed to disseminate propaganda including Recovery.gov and direct promotion of pro-Obamacare Democratic Party websites.
  • Spending millions of taxpayer dollars on ‘stimulus’ project highway signs” [3]

Seems like quite a few strikes against the Obama Administration if all of the above are true.  The article continues, explaining the laws that are in effect to prohibit this type of blatant misuse of taxpayer funds.  Now, the worst part of all of this is that even though Rep. Issa inquired into the activities of the Obama Administration, Obama completely ignored them.  The fact that these illegal activities may have taken place in the White House and with the approval of the President is unconscionable.  The fact that all requests by Issa for clarification were ignored simply speaks of demagoguery on the part of our president.

Yet, this seems to be the way President Obama has chosen to operate his administration, in the dark, and completely ignoring the will of the people, and some of the laws of this land (allegedly).  It is clear as I have stated in previous blogs that President Obama has no interest in what the average American wants.  Obama seems determined to run his presidency as if he were a dictator.  After all, laws do not apply to dictators.  Dictators answer to no one.  Dictators squelch debate and opposing viewpoints.

Since Obama has gained the highest office in the land, he seems to have committed himself to disassembling what this country was founded upon and what it stands for and because of his narcissism, he seems unable (or unwilling) to logically conclude that he is there to serve the people of the United States.  Instead, what he has done is serve himself and the particular special interest groups that he prefers.

Looking at this entire situation as a Christian, I am amazed that God put someone like this in office.  I am amazed.  Yet, I should not be.  I guess what amazes me is that I am alive to see this happen!  It is absolute proof that God is in charge of the events of humanity.  What other proof is needed?  What can be given?

As part of my devotional time this morning, I read Psalm 24 (KJV), which says:

1The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

2For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

7Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.

In the above passage, David marvels at the supreme essence of who God is and the fact that He controls all things.  Look what he says about God and this world in verse one.  “he earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Is that not awe-inspiring?  God OWNS this world and everything in it.  He does what He will to bring about His plans, His purposes, and His designs.  Though many things can take us by surprise, nothing whatsoever takes God by surprise.

Folks, I’m at a loss.  I pray for our president daily.  I pray for his continued safety (and for the safety of his family).  I pray that God will use Obama to accomplish His (God’s) goals and I believe firmly that he is doing just that.

Knowing this, I also am praying that either Obama will get to a point where he will be forced to resign, or that he will either not run for a second term, or be defeated if he does.  I pray like this because I know of no other way to pray.  As I have stated before, God is absolutely free to do what He will do, easily saying ‘no’ to my requests.

It may well be if Obama neither is pressured to resign, or wins a second term, then we must remember that it is God who has decreed that and He has decreed it for His purposes alone, not Obama’s.  IF by some fat chance, Obama runs again and IS re-elected, it will probably be even easier for Obama to believe that the people want him in the driver’s seat.  Because of the level of his narcissism, I really believe that a second term will put Obama beyond the point of no return, where he will begin to see himself as almost god-like.

Frankly, I’m not sure how he avoids seeing himself this way now because of the clamor made during his run for office and all the cheers and chants of “he is our hope!” etc.  No, there is only one hope, and it is not President Obama.  In fact, our one hope lies in no human being, except that of Jesus Christ, Himself fully God and fully Man.  That’s where our hope lies, doesn’t it.

During the campaign for president, too many people got caught up in the wave of hysteria that made them believe that Obama could solve their problems.  Bush was made to look like the devil (and the Democrats are still using that worn out tune), and Obama was the knight in shining armor who would lead this nation to victory over its economic woes.  Hasn’t happened, and in fact, in many areas, things are worsening.  The problem though is that people actually believed that a man could solve this country’s problems.  He can’t.

Did God allow Obama to be elected just as He allowed Saul to be the first king of Israel?  The people demanded a human king just like their neighboring nations enjoyed.  Samuel was extremely upset with the Israelites, but God reminded him that the Israelites had not rejected him (Samuel), but God.  That is tragic.  So they got a guy named Saul who was good-looking, was a great warrior and someone whom the people of Israel could literally put their faith in.  However, Saul was nowhere near what he was cracked up to be and God knew it and allowed it.  Saul eventually fell out of favor with God and was cast aside.  However, God turned defeat into victory by appointing and anointing David to be Saul’s successor.  David’s reign was generally very good, until he sidetracked himself through lust, which became adultery, and from that, murder to cover his own sin.

Do we have a Saul in the White House today?  Very probable.  Folks, we authentic Christians need to get on our knees, and pray that Obama’s reign will be short.  That while God continues to keep Obama and his family safe, He will not protect him from the alleged illegalities that he may well be involved in.  As Saul abused his power, so is Obama, He is circumventing federal law and Congress in order to get what he wants.

Are we going to grow calluses on our knees if necessary in order for God to know how serious and sincere we are?  Are we going to storm the gates of heaven with our prayers and requests, in order for God to move?  Ultimately, God will hear us and He will bring the necessary change.  The only reason that it might be too late is if the Rapture and/or Tribulation is upon us.  In that case, I can see God only moving ahead with His plan irrespective of our desires.

In the end though, we do get what we want, because we want only God’s will.  Sometimes, He expects and desires us to come to Him boldly, making our requests known to Him before He moves.  Other times, He moves us to pray for what He is already planning on doing.  Still other times, He does what He will do to move His agenda forward.

President Obama has an agenda.  God has an agenda.  I wish I could say with certainty that everything Obama does is God’s perfect will, but I can’t.  I believe God is allowing Obama to do what he is doing and for what purpose, I am not sure.  To gain our attention in order to pray more intelligently?  To move this country and this world that much closer to the time when the coming Antichrist will step from the shadows and secure his place at the top of the ‘food’ chain, so to speak?  I wish I could say with surety that it was one or the other.  Even though I can’t say for sure, I’m going to continue to pray that God will remove Obama through either a forced resignation, or not being re-elected.

When I think of a forced resignation, I am also forced to think of the fact that with Obama out of office, (O)Biden becomes president…yuck.

God’s will be done, for His glory!  Amen!
