Have the Obama voters been betrayed? Where is the free stuff? Those who voted for Obama may have thought that he had their best interests in mind. Ask the people who were hit by Hurricane Sandy how that’s working out for them.
The topic of betrayal brings to mind those times, places, and events where one expects a particular end as a result of standing with/for a certain group, person, or policy, and then things go a different direction.
It is the question currently in Congress. If we do this…will they do that? Or will they betray us and lie to us and not fulfill their part of the bargain?
One of the most well known betrayals is that of Judas regarding the Christ. Judas betrayed Christ with a kiss. I personally think he did not intend harm to Christ because Judas stated, “Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.” (Mark 14:44, The Bible). I personally believe that Judas, after seeing all the power Jesus had, thought that he would use that power to set up his kingdom and of course, Judas probably wanted a place in that kingdom. I don’t think he thought his betrayal would lead to Jesus’s death and crucifixion. That is not what Judas expected; he threw the money he had been paid off with away and ended up killing himself.
We can go now to today’s news to look at betrayals. We have the military who has followed the orders of Obama. Now it is in question, and actually has been since before the 2008 elections, as to the legality of Obama being in the White House due to his birth certificate, his selective service card, and his college records. So we have the military following the orders of someone who, if the legal case(s) were pushed through to completion, would probably be removed as Commander-in-Chief. Meanwhile, a great number of military officers have been removed. And who are the ones replacing these people and why?
This has been covered in depth at another blog.
It would be worthwhile for the press to investigate if all these firings are truly legitimate.
Is this betrayal of the military and their years of service?
Next we go to the press and media. Of course, it has been rather weak in discussing things like Obama’s birth certificate and the legal implications of whether he should be holding the office of President. It takes the alternative internet media to discuss that.
There are many places the mainstream media does not go with facts. It is hard to believe that they don’t know the information the is reported by Infowars or WorldNetDaily or the WhiteHatReports with the extensive resources that they, the mainstream media, have available to search out those same stories and facts. Personally, having listened to various comments, I believe it is the editors within the mainstream media who ultimately squash the stories.
In the free book available at this site, is this quote regarding this topic:
In 1953, John Swinton, editor of the New York Times stated, (at a meeting of the Independent Press): “There is no such thing, at this date of world’s history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and if any of you would be so foolish as to write honest opinions [you] would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinion to appear in one issue of my paper, before 24 hours had elapsed my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert, to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon; and to sell his country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it…and what folly is this—toasting an ‘independent press’? We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks. They pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes!”
So now that the press has backed Obama since before 2008, what will be their fate? Will they be betrayed as well?
It is not going well for the American people. It is not going well for the military. Now, how will it go for the press? Will they be betrayed?
