Obama Proclaims a Nearly ‘Godless’ Thanksgiving
(Breitbart) – While no one expects the eloquence of Abraham Lincoln to issue from Barack Obama’s lips, the President’s Proclamation of Thanksgiving 2014 lacks not only Lincoln’s style, but unfortunately even a basic understanding of what America’s greatest feast is all about.
When Abraham Lincoln solemnly proclaimed the Thanksgiving holiday in 1863, during the bitter heat of the American Civil War, he consciously instituted a God-centered feast. He invited a divided America in the midst of acute hardship to count its blessings and to acknowledge the goodness of Almighty God, rendering Him the gratitude that was due.
Lincoln saw that “we are prone to forget the source” from which our blessings flow, and to remedy that, he enumerates the bounty that has been poured out over America by our Maker. These gifts of God are so great, Lincoln reasons, that they “cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God.”
Rush Limbaugh: Did Obama Halt National Guard in Ferguson?
‘Somebody wanted this to happen’
(Rush Limbaugh) – BEGIN TRANSCRIPT
RUSH: I tried yesterday to make a point about this business in Ferguson, and I did not spend enough time actually thinking about how I wanted to say it in order to be the most clearly communicable and understood. The artificiality of this, and I do mean artificiality. These were not riots. These were planned, staged, predicted, counted on incidents of civil disobedience.This was not a riot. This did not happen spontaneously. It did not happen because of something that happened unexpectedly that caused people to lose their mind. They planned it. It was a strategic plan, and the media fell right in line, predicting it, and counting down to it and heightening tensions. And so when it happens, it was expected, and therefore it can’t be a riot. The fact that it was expected and still happened, what does it say about the civility of our culture? What does it say about the overall civilization that we have?
Something about this has just not seemed right to me and I haven’t been able to put my finger on it. But it’s the same way I felt in the days leading up to the Obama announcement on amnesty, the executive amnesty for the five million illegals. Here we were told what was gonna happen and the media, in the pre-days and hours leading up to the event, heightened the tension, the anticipation. We had a countdown to an event we all knew was coming, and that was the Constitution being violated.
When you get right down to it, that’s what the event was. And it seemed, even though it happened and we knew it was gonna happen, it just seemed surreal. Everything seemed to happen on a media schedule, on a media timetable. Everything seemed to happen because of the media...(MORE)
