Obama On Tilt, Still Dividing America & Distorting The Bible

by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author: Obama On Tilt
Like so many on the left, Barack Obama seems to be struggling with the reality that Donald Trump is making a serious run for the presidency, threatening to undo his past seven years of fundamental transformation.

Yet another poll shows Trump and Clinton are neck-and-neck. This is not how it was supposed to be.

Hillary Clinton was supposed to waltz into the White House. Instead, she's struggling in the primary against an aging socialist and fighting to avoid an indictment.

By the way, Bryan Pagliano, Hillary's former IT aide who set up her private email server, is pleading the Fifth again. Hillary insists nothing was illegal, but I have to ask the obvious question: What laws does Pagliano believe he violated that require him to avoid self-incrimination in these legal proceedings?

Yesterday, Obama held a town hall event in Elkhart, Indiana, to tout his economic accomplishments. (Seriously. I'm not making this up.) At one point, he appeared to be on tilt.

Obama's speech was full of contradictions and inconsistencies. For example, he blamed conservative media for people believing the economy is in bad shape.

Obama said, "It is the story that is broadcast every day on some cable news stations, on right wing radio. It is pumped into cars and bars and VFW halls all across America. . ."

What is he talking about?

The media are overwhelmingly left-of-center. The great majority of Americans get their news from the major networks -- ABC, CBS and NBC. When you include social media, left-wing newspapers and the liberal comedy shows that too many young people believe deliver real news, there is no comparison.

It is delusional to suggest that Fox News and a handful of commentators are brainwashing the American people, making them ignore reality.

Now here are some hard facts on the economy:
  • Incomes fell during the Obama years.
  • Obama has doubled the national debt.
  • According to one analysis, Obama has one of the worst economic records in American history, failing to deliver even "a single year of 3.0%+ economic growth."
Still Dividing America
During his speech, Obama warned against dividing people by race and religion. But that is what he has been doing from day one.

Obama bemoaned the fact that black unemployment was twice that of whites. But that has nothing to do with discrimination and everything to do with massive illegal immigration, the breakdown of the family and left-wing policies in major cities that have been run by liberal Democrats for decades.

He complained that Hispanic women make 55 cents for every dollar earned by white men. What is the point of that comparison? Does a Hispanic doctor make less than a white doctor? Do Hispanic women make less than black women? Once again, Obama is doing a good job of dividing us by race and class. (I'll get to religion in the next item.)

The president did not hesitate to try to turn the public against the police -- the men and women who defend us every day. Many incidents involving police officers were exploited to fan the flames of racism, leading some thugs to declare open season on the police. Some people even went looking to assassinate cops.

There has been a major transformation over the past seven years in the atmosphere for law enforcement, and I doubt few officers would say it has been for the better.

Obama Distorts The Bible
When it came time for questions from the audience, Obama was asked why, given all the other pressing issues out there, he decided to make an issue of which bathroom a person uses.

Obama initially tried to downplay the question, suggesting that he wasn't spending a lot of time on it. Really?

His Justice Department just issued threats to 14,000 school districts across the country, telling them what they must do or risk losing funds for disadvantaged children. His Justice Department has already pulled some school districts into federal court. I shudder to think what it would look like if he actually started spending time on something!

But Obama's follow-up was even more offensive and theologically twisted. He justified this new federal mandate based on the Bible, saying, "My reading of scripture tells me that [the] Golden Rule is pretty high up there in terms of my Christian belief."

In other words, treat people as you would want to be treated. So if a man thinks he is a woman, Obama expects other people to treat him like a woman.

Here's the flaw in Obama's reasoning: If you see somebody who is hungry, you would ask yourself, "If I was hungry, would I want someone to help me?" The answer obviously is, "Yes." There is no conflict here. There is a hungry person who needs food.

But with the transgender issue, there are millions of boys and girls who have a normal sense of modesty. They have a right to expect that they can go to a bathroom or locker room in their school and not experience a severe violation of their privacy.

On the other hand you have an incredibly small group of young people suffering from a deep mental/emotional syndrome that leads a boy to believe in his mind that he is a girl. Reputable scientists and doctors have said there is some evidence this is similar to the extremely emaciated young woman who looks in the mirror and thinks she is fat.

In other words, there is a lot of evidence that this is a psychological disorder.

But in order to apply Obama's reading of the Golden Rule to these troubled young people, he has to deny the truth and beauty of the Golden Rule to millions of normal adolescents. You are not treating a girl like a girl if you force her to undress in front of boys. That is a violation of the Golden Rule.

It would be like seeing that hungry person next to a man with a sandwich, taking his sandwich and giving it to the hungry person. That is what Obama is doing. He is taking away the privacy expectations of normal children in order to accommodate troubled youth.

And how is it that Obama can see transgenderism in the Golden Rule but can't see anything in the Golden Rule that might apply to the abortion issue? The Bible is clear. In Deuteronomy 30:19, God says, "Choose life."

Yet Obama refuses to ask, "If I were a vulnerable little baby what would I want to happen to me?" Obviously, the baby would want her mother to choose life.

Obama takes political risks all the time, but he should be careful when it comes to distorting God's words for dubious social engineering. There are punishments worse than falling polling numbers.
