The title of this blog is the title of an insightful column posted at the website of the Wall Street Journal (see link below). This column addresses the “deepening notes of disenchantment with Barack Obama now issuing from commentators across the political spectrum,” and makes the rather damning observation that “this president…was wanting in certain qualities citizens have taken for granted in their presidents.” She adds that Obama does not have an “identification with the nation” in him, but that he has a “sense of identification that lies elsewhere.” The author, Dorothy Rabinowitz, calls Obama an “alien in the White House” because he is loyal to a “world community” instead of the people of the United States of America.
She cites one of Obama’s first acts, the exiling of a bust of Winston Churchill (given as a gift to the USA by a Prime Minister of the UK) back to the UK from whence it came. The fact that Obama couldn’t tolerate the presence of the image of a British Prime Minister who was one of America’s staunchest allies in all of our national history reveals that Obama rejects (loathes?) the very heritage and core reality of our nation. Hers is a strong column, but it voices the discomfort growing all across the nation that Obama is “not one of us.”
Her column cites a litany of actions and statements by Obama appointees which reveal an appalling inability to deal with (or even recognize) the realities of the world in which America now finds itself. One of the most egregious examples of this disconnection from reality is the statement by one Obama appointee that “compared the treatment of Muslim-Americans in the United States after 9/11 with the plight of Japanese-Americans interned in camps after Pearl Harbor.” This is a factual error so breathtaking that one wonders how anyone could make such a bizarre comparison. Instead of cramming American Moslems in detainment camps after 9/11, the USA has bent over backwards to be tolerant of Moslems in the USA and has made no blanket condemnation of all Moslems because of the heinous sins of certain Moslems on 9/11.
Obama has made a bizarre policy shift since taking office wherein he alienates allies and cozies up to enemies, apologizes to the world for sins America has not committed, etc. The article below states: “Americans were shocked by this behavior in their newly-elected president, and it concludes by saying the Obama administration needs “every infusion of reality it can get.”
Two biblical prophecies came to my mind when I read this important link (which everyone should read). The first is in Isaiah 3:1-5. Isaiah 1-4 is a prophecy about the time of the “day of the Lord” in which the tribes of Israel are very sinful. This is a prophecy for our modern times as we are living with the “day of the Lord” looming ahead of us at the end of this age. Judah and Jerusalem are mostly mentioned in this prophecy, but Isaiah 2:1-5 mention that this prophecy also applies to “the house of Jacob” (which means all the tribes of Israel) in “the last days.” Isaiah 3:1-5 foretells that when the tribes of Israel give themselves over to sin (as our modern nations have done), that God will remove mature, capable civilian and military leaders, judges, etc. leaders from their nations and give them “children to be their princes and babes shall rule over them.” I’m sure many readers have seen internet links of commentators and analysts who have described Obama as a narcissistic child in his temperament. The second and third links below are video clips of Rush Limbaugh and Charles Krauthammer commenting on Obama’s narcissism, and there are a vast number of other such links available on this subject via a websearch. Just today, I heard Rush Limbaugh refer to Obama as a “child” in the White House during his radio program. Isaiah 3:1-5 is now being fulfilled in modern America.
Those who have read my books realize that the modern nations of the USA, the UK, many European nations, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Israelis, etc. are the modern tribes of Israel. Those who have not done so are urged to read the article at my homepage entitled The USA in Prophecy which offers a summary of the evidence presented in my books that the USA is primarily the modern Israelite nation descended from the tribe of Manasseh. The evidence supporting this conclusion is clear from both a biblical and secular/historical viewpoint, confirming that the God of the Bible is the Creator of the Universe and that he is sovereign over all the nations—able to make sure his prophecies are implemented over the subsequent millennia after they were first inspired (Isaiah 41:21-26).
The second prophecy is found in Deuteronomy 28, a chapter which contains God’s prophecies about the blessings and curses which will befall the Israelite nations in the future when they either obey or disobey God. One of the curses pronounced on Israelite nations who disobey God is found in verse 43, which states: “the stranger (“alien”) that is within you shall get up above you very high, and you shall come down very low.” The Wall Street Journal link below is entitled “The alien (stranger) in the White House.” In modern America, we now have in our White House a president who is an “alien” (stranger) to our national heritage, religion and even our national interests. Even columnists can see it… from a secular perspective. Deuteronomy 28:43 has been fulfilled in the modern United States of America.
Let’s hope that enough Americans will repent of our national sins so that II Chronicles 7:14 can next be fullilled in our immediate national future. If such a repentance does not occur, we are destined as a nation to fall even lower.
