Chapter 1: Barack Obama—‘Fundamentally Transforming America’
January 20, 2017, was Barack Obama’s last day in the Oval Office. That day, he left a handwritten message for the incoming president, Donald Trump. He wrote that America’s presidents are “guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions—like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties—that our forebears fought and bled for. Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it’s up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them.”
Mr. Obama’s note seemed noble and sincere. It was treated as such by many politicians and journalists. But it is one of the most diabolical and hypocritical messages ever written by an American president.
Barack Obama spent his eight years as president doing exactly the opposite of what he told Mr. Trump: advancing his agenda to weaken those democratic institutions and traditions in pursuit of his supreme stated goal of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
After leaving office, Mr. Obama continued to pursue this goal. He spearheaded the effort to harm Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda, an effort that included illegally spying on him and impeaching him twice. He directed the radical left’s treasonous battle to prevent Mr. Trump from being reelected at all costs.
The United States entered its greatest political crisis ever on November 3, 2020, Election Day. To make Joe Biden president, the radical left flagrantly manipulated the nation’s voting system.
Initially, the mainstream media, perhaps half the citizens, most of the nation’s politicians (Democrats and Republicans), and much of the rest of the world believed or at least behaved as though Mr. Biden had been legitimately elected president by the official total of 81 million votes.
But it was a giant lie. Mountains of evidence prove that the election was manipulated. At court hearings in several states, hundreds of witnesses gave firsthand accounts of widespread election fraud. Thousands of witnesses signed affidavits attesting to it. Scientists and data analysts investigated the numbers and testified of the statistical impossibility of some of the official vote counts. Electronic voting machines and software were audited and revealed dishonest activity. Security video footage and cell phone geolocation data showed ballot “mules” stuffing drop boxes with stacks of ballots, sometimes in the middle of the night. Many of these people hid their identity with masks, obscured their fingerprints with disposable gloves, and photographed themselves with the ballots at the drop boxes to ensure they received payment for their crimes.
The 2020 election was hacked, and it reduced America’s entire electoral system to shambles. And it is all because of the radical left’s unrestrained assault on America’s “democratic institutions and traditions,” including the Constitution and the rule of law. Thousands of people and institutions were directly or indirectly involved. Virtually all of America’s top media organizations and personalities were complicit, as well as the powerful tech companies and many of the nation’s top politicians.
But this vast network of lies, corruption and lawlessness all points back to one man: Barack Obama.
As we will see, this epic scandal would not have taken place if not for Obama’s leadership of the Democratic Party and the radical left. And there is proof that he not only was aware of the plot to pervert the 2020 election but was directly or indirectly leading those pulling the strings.
Many have referred to this as a rolling coup—an ongoing insurgence against American constitutional government—and they are right. This coup was initiated by Barack Obama before he left office in January 2017. Even as he was writing that “beautiful” message instructing Donald Trump to guard democracy and the rule of law, this man was devising plans to overthrow Mr. Trump and return the radical left to the White House!
I want to show how the 2020 election crisis exposes Mr. Obama and his closest allies. After Election Day, the corruption in America’s politics and electoral system was dramatically uncovered. This exposed a startling lurch toward lawlessness in this nation.
More importantly, this crisis reveals the unseen but potent force behind Mr. Obama and the radical left, and it spotlights a crucial biblical prophecy. To understand Barack Obama, the 2020 election and America’s immediate future, you need to understand that prophecy.
Before we examine that evidence, however, let’s look further back in the story.
Barack Obama is unlike any other president America has ever had. His public persona has been shaped by his three memoirs, which the media have accepted at face value. But there are many disturbing truths about his childhood and early adulthood that he does not mention in these autobiographies that should have been known and examined when the American people were considering him for the nation’s most powerful office. It is amazing how much about his life was concealed or distorted by the media before he became president. It’s as if Americans were not allowed to know the man who was about to be their leader.
A Tragic Childhood
Obama’s story is tragic in many ways. His biological father was a womanizer from Kenya whom he met only once and who abandoned him when he was a young child. Years later, his mother also abandoned him, leaving him with his grandparents. He had a very sad childhood. He was a vulnerable and emotionally neglected boy. He was confused and angry, in search of father and mother figures.
In his biography Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, David Garrow writes that in 1970, when Obama was 9 or 10 years old, his mother hired “an openly gay 24-year-old, sometimes-cross-dressing man … to be both cook and nanny.” This babysitter tried to avoid letting the young Obama see him in women’s clothes, but he would try on makeup in front of him.
During his teen years, Obama’s mother lived in Indonesia, and he lived with his grandparents in Hawaii. Garrow notes that Obama’s main challenges growing up had nothing to do with race; Hawaii is one of the most culturally diverse places in America. Most of Obama’s friends from high school describe Obama’s anger as having more to do with the lack of parental attention. One of his close friends said, “Obama’s parents were a ‘total and complete mystery.’ Obama never spoke about them, he recalled: ‘I knew nothing about his father, and I can’t say that I knew he had a mother at all.’”
During his junior year of high school, Obama was a member of the “Choom Gang,” a Hawaiian slang term for smoking marijuana. It was known that Obama smoked marijuana, but the media have downplayed how heavily he used this drug during his preparatory years. He and his friends smoked marijuana almost daily and, when they could afford it, experimented with cocaine and heroin.
The group’s drug dealer was a homosexual named Ray Boyer. Obama and his friends referred to him as “Gay Ray.” Ray lived in a bus in an abandoned warehouse. He was also heavily into pornography. One of Obama’s friends recalled that “Gay Ray” would get the boys high, then they would watch pornography together.
Obama’s high school yearbook gave each graduating senior a quarter page to use as they wished. Obama’s friends included references to their antics and memorialized the group by writing the initials of each member. On Obama’s page, in addition to acknowledging his friends, he mentioned Ray. Garrow writes that Obama, “alone of all the Choom Gang, had singled out their weird, gay, porn-showing drug dealer by name and thanked him ‘for all the good times.’”
It is appalling to surrender a young man to such destructive influences. The Bible describes a time in ancient Israel of such corruption that the people sacrificed their own children (e.g. 2 Kings 17:17; Psalm 106:37-38; Jeremiah 7:31; 19:5). How savage and barbaric! Yet we see parents doing effectively the same thing today: People are sacrificing their children morally, mentally and spiritually by turning them over to all sorts of evil influences. Whether they realize it or not, they are opening their children up to deadly attacks from the devil.
When someone has that kind of childhood, Satan can exploit that. The fruits strongly suggest that in the case of a young Barack Obama, he exploited it in a profound way.
One of the most influential figures on young Obama was his maternal grandfather’s black friend Frank Marshall Davis. Davis was literally a card-carrying Communist. He had been surveilled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for several years in the 1940s and ’50s. He was also a poet and a pornographer. Obama’s grandfather encouraged him to talk with Davis one-on-one.
Davis focused Obama on the struggles of black Americans. He is largely responsible for developing Obama’s views on race and racial identity.
The American Spectator printed an article about Davis, with the quip “Meet the hard-core Communist who mentored the future 44th president of the United States” (Oct. 12, 2012). “In short, Frank Marshall Davis’s writings were outrageous,” Paul Kengor wrote. “A Jeremiah Wright sermon or Bill Ayers lecture is tame by comparison.” Bill Ayers is a white American socialist terrorist and an associate of Mr. Obama.
Obama vaguely references Davis in his first autobiography, referring to him more than 20 times but only as “Frank”—references he later censored. He is conspicuously quiet about his meetings with Davis. When he started his political career decades later, his relationship with Davis would become a liability. Obama said the relationship was nothing and that he only met with him something like 15 times.
In 1980, Obama attended Occidental College in Los Angeles, California. During summer vacation, he returned to Hawaii and experienced another race-based turning point. Obama’s white grandmother came home one afternoon after being frightened by a black homeless man while she was waiting for a bus. Obama sought Frank’s advice on the matter. According to Obama, Frank told him, “[Y]our grandma’s right to be scared. … She understands that black people have a reason to hate. That’s just how it is. For your sake, I wish it was otherwise. But it’s not. So you might as well get used to it.”
Obama says that upon reflecting on their conversation, “The earth shook under my feet, ready to crack open at any moment. I stopped, trying to steady myself, and knew for the first time that I was utterly alone” (Dreams From My Father).
It appears this talk awakened Obama’s racial consciousness. Obama experienced no significant race-related problems growing up, but that didn’t keep him from using race as a political tool later in life. Frank Marshall Davis was instrumental in fanning the flames of racial grievance and inspiring the racial agenda of the future president of the United States.
At Occidental College, Obama wrote, “To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk-rock performance poets.” Obama admitted to choosing Marxist professors. “We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night, in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz [sic] Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpet or set our stereos so loud that the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society’s stifling constraints. We weren’t indifferent or careless or insecure. We were alienated.” If I had done those things, I certainly wouldn’t brag about them in a book.
One of Obama’s professors was Lawrence Goldyn, who taught comparative politics. Goldyn was known on the Occidental campus for being its only openly homosexual professor. Garrow writes that many years later, when asked about his perspective on homosexual issues, Obama said, “My favorite professor my first year in college was one of the first openly gay people that I knew. … He was a terrific guy.” In later interviews, Obama discussed his “strong friendship” with Goldyn and admired how he displayed “comfort in his own skin.” Garrow writes that he “wrote somewhat elusively to his first intimate girlfriend that he had thought about and considered gayness, but ultimately had decided that a same-sex relationship would be less challenging and demanding than developing one with the opposite sex.”
In the fall of 1980, Obama accepted an invitation from a friend at Occidental, Mohammed Hasan Chandoo, to share a two-bedroom apartment. Garrow writes that during the academic year of 1980–81, Obama and Chandoo “became the closest of friends.” “Marijuana was a regular though perhaps not nightly relaxant for Hasan and Barry,” Garrow writes. Chandoo’s girlfriend admitted that the group occasionally snorted cocaine. At one point he tried psychedelic mushrooms.
Though Obama later admitted to using drugs, he said it was minimal. Months before the 2008 presidential election, the New York Times published this headline: “Old Friends Say Drugs Played Bit Part in Obama’s Young Life.” The article said Obama’s friends may have downplayed his drug use to protect his reputation.
Such drug use weakens the mind and makes a person more susceptible to damaging spiritual forces. Did these activities open this door within the life of the man who would become America’s president?
Chandoo, a Pakistani with whom Obama “became the closest of friends,” identified himself as a Marxist. Another friend remembered that he “was very radical at the time.” During the fall semester of 1981, Obama became more politically active. He began attending Marxist rallies. Friends remember that Obama “argued a rather simple-minded version of Marxist theory” and that “he was passionate about his point of view.” Obama and Chandoo started a chapter at the college of “the Committee in Solidarity With the People of El Salvador,” a group that supported El Salvador’s left-wing opposition, which had ties to the Communist party. Chandoo also organized a forum on campus featuring a former Pakistani Supreme Court justice and the exiled founder of Pakistan’s militant Marxist party.
In Dreams From My Father, Obama describes a night when his white friends were polite but visibly uncomfortable at a party where most of the people were black. After that night, he wrote, “I had begun to see a new map of the world, one that was frightening in its simplicity, suffocating in its implications. … [A]ny distinction between good and bad whites held negligible meaning. In fact, you couldn’t even be sure that everything you had assumed to be an expression of your black, unfettered self … had been freely chosen by you. At best, these things were a refuge; at worst, a trap. Following this maddening logic, the only thing you could choose as your own was withdrawal into a smaller and smaller coil of rage, until being black meant only the knowledge of your own powerlessness, of your own defeat. And the final irony: Should you refuse this defeat and lash out at your captors, they would have a name for that, too, a name that could cage you just as good. Paranoid. Militant. Violent. Ni***r. Over the next few months, I looked to corroborate this nightmare vision. [Reading books by Baldwin, Ellison, Hughes, Wright, DuBois and Malcolm X], trying to reconcile the world as I’d found it with the terms of my birth.”
About this time, Garrow writes, “Obama also realized that the beer drinking, pot smoking and cocaine snorting that Oxy [Occidental College], like Punahou [Obama’s preparatory high school], offered him, and that had cemented his reputation as a ‘hard-core party animal’ to some friends, was incompatible with any self-transformation into a more serious student and person.”
Obama decided to remake himself. He wanted a fresh start. One friend recalled that Obama wanted to move somewhere where he would have “access to a black cultural experience that I don’t actually know.”
Obama transferred to Columbia University in New York City in 1982. There he went to stay with a friend of Chandoo’s named Siddiqi. Garrow writes that “Siddiqi also witnessed a ‘transformation’ from the ‘fun-loving … easygoing’ Obama he had met 18 months earlier in South Pasadena to someone who was now ‘very serious and less lighthearted.’”
In an interview years later, Obama spoke about his time at Columbia. Garrow writes that his mother jokingly called him Gandhi “because of his newly ascetic life, but Barack did not deny that he had become ‘deadly serious’ during those late college years.”
Obama recalled, “People would invite me to parties, and I’d say, ‘What are you talking about? We’ve got a revolution that has to take place.’”
Barack Obama was now on a course that would lead him to the Democratic Party, Chicago, the Senate and the presidency.
Entry Into Politics
After Columbia University, Obama moved to Chicago, where he entered the world of community organizing. He was looking for a place to belong and trying to create an identity for himself. He would forge one in Chicago. In a 2007 article for the New Republic, Ryan Lizza wrote that Obama “longed for an experience that connected him to the civil rights era.” Obama wrote in his autobiography that he “earned” his membership in the African-American community “through organizing” and “shared sacrifice.” Obama, Lizza wrote, “wanted to join the club.”
Obama began attending church services under Pastor Jeremiah Wright. Decades later, his relationship with Wright would become one of the few challenges he would face in his political career. During his 2008 presidential campaign, clips of Wright’s sermons began to surface on the Internet. These show Wright’s anger and indignation (“Racism is the American way!”) during his profanity-laden, conspiracy-theory-based screeds (“The government lied about inventing the hiv virus as a means of genocide against people of color”) cloaked in spiritual language (“Jesus was a poor black man … who lived in a culture that was controlled by rich white people!”). In these clips, Wright’s most slanderous statements receive the wildest cheers from his congregation.
Barack Obama insisted that he never heard Wright say those things. But he attended this man’s anti-Semitic, anti-white church for 20 years. For two decades he sat in Wright’s church hearing him rant malicious hate toward this country. Their relationship was deep. Obama titled one of his books The Audacity of Hope, after one of Wright’s sermons.
Sadly, the press and much of the American public willingly overlooked this startling warning sign. It is as if they were in a stupor, unconcerned that Obama’s worldview was shaped by some of the most radical and racist minds in America!
While in Chicago, Obama learned about the Saul Alinsky approach to community organizing. In his book Rules for Radicals, Alinsky praised Lucifer for being the “first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom.” Obama never met Alinsky personally, but he was trained by some of Alinsky’s closest followers.
“Alinsky had been dead for more than a decade when Obama arrived in Chicago, but his legacy was still very much alive,” Lizza wrote about Obama’s connection to the man. “[Mike] Kruglik, [Gerald] Kellman and [Gregory] Galluzzo had all studied his teachings through the Industrial Areas Foundation (iaf), the organizing school Alinsky founded. By the ’80s, not even the iaf strictly adhered to every principle that Alinsky taught. But at least one of Obama’s teachers considered himself a true believer: ‘I regard myself as St. Paul who never met Jesus,’ Galluzzo told me of Alinsky, who died shortly after Galluzzo moved to Chicago on a pilgrimage to meet him in 1972. ‘I’m his best disciple.’”
Galluzzo was one of three men who taught Obama about community organizing.
Obama left Chicago to attend Harvard. But, as Lizza noted, Obama “kept a foot in the world of organizing.” Obama traveled to Los Angeles to attend a training course taught by the iaf. Lizza wrote that after Harvard, Obama returned to Chicago where “he served on the boards of both the Woods Fund and the Joyce Foundation, which also gives grants to Alinsky-style groups, and continued to teach organizing workshops.”
After attending the University of Chicago, Obama went into state politics in Illinois, first as a state senator in 1996 and then eight years later in the U.S. Senate. In just 12 years, Obama went from being a little-known state politician to president of the United States of America. Few politicians move that swiftly through the ranks of politics.
Throughout Obama’s political career, almost nobody would talk about these damaging influences on his youth, his final meeting with Frank that shook the earth under his feet, his time at Occidental, his new sense of purpose, the solidifying of his racial agenda, and his transformation into a revolutionary. They overlooked how these factors influenced Barack Obama’s view of this nation. And they failed to connect these facts to his declaration during a rally on October 30, 2008, just prior to the 2008 presidential election: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
Barack Obama wanted to fundamentally transform the nation because he disagreed with its founding principles. He believed that the Constitution was created by rich white people for rich white people and that whites have been stealing from everyone else. He was deeply sympathetic to an ideology that directly, even violently, opposes America’s constitutional government: communism.
As president, Mr. Obama passionately pursued his ambition to transform America. And he found formidable success.
Let’s start with one example. Many people said that electing (and reelecting) a black man to the most powerful office in the world would solve our nation‘s racial problems. It did the opposite. That is because Barack Obama actively fomented those problems.
President Obama repeatedly made public remarks on racially charged issues, remarks that increased people’s mistrust of the police and eroded faith in the justice system. He said things that were provably false but that played well to racist radicals. At one point Obama said racism is part of America’s dna. That means the nation is irredeemably racist. Such a baseless accusation is satanic to its core! Satan uses race as a weapon to divide people. God doesn’t hold any race as superior or inferior to any other; He made all races and has a transcendent potential in store for all people!
In the post-Obama America, mainstream media and radical Democrats continually accuse Republicans and everyday Americans of being racist. In almost every case, they are lying and they know they’re lying. Radicals encourage racism against whites, teaching white students—even elementary schoolchildren—to think they are inferior to blacks, Hispanics and anybody of color. We frequently hear racist remarks on television and radio. One black tv commentator on nbc said, “This is no country for young black men!” Such ugly, racist remarks are filling the country with hatred and division that will lead to violence and race war. These commentators are either ignorant of what they are doing, or they want a race war. Certainly some extremists do. Bible prophecy tells us they are going to get one.
This is just one example of how Barack Obama transformed America. There are many more.
The Obama administration deceitfully forced through the Affordable Care Act, a destructive piece of legislation that increased national debt and made America more of a socialist state. It permitted the Internal Revenue Service to illegally target conservative groups through audits, bank account seizures, surveillance and other forms of harassment. This was one of many ways that, under Obama, federal institutions were politicized and weaponized. Later chapters in this book detail how this dangerous process was particularly egregious with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency and other intelligence agencies. President Obama used these and other federal institutions to spy on American senators and representatives, journalists, political campaigns and millions of everyday Americans. These actions seriously eroded the rule of law, undermined constitutional protections for the American people, and pushed the country dramatically toward tyranny.
The Obama administration perpetrated equally major “fundamental changes” in America’s foreign policy. In 2009, President Obama visited Cairo, Egypt, and gave a speech aimed at reconciling with Iran. He said nobody had the right to deny nuclear weapons to this terrorist-sponsoring nation. This speech helped to provoke, and the Obama administration supported, a popular Islamist uprising against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (a good friend of Israel), which brought the Muslim Brotherhood into power. Then his government ignored the popular revolt in Iran, strengthening the radical mullahs in the number one terrorist-sponsoring nation in the world. Then it negotiated a grotesque nuclear deal with the Iranian leaders, freeing Iranian spies, flooding Iran with cash, and providing a lifeline for ongoing nuclear activity. And when a jihadist mob attacked America’s embassy in Benghazi, Libya, on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2012, and terrorists killed an ambassador and three other Americans, Obama officials shamefully told our people to stand down. They then tried to deflect blame for the killings away from the killers and apologized for America supposedly provoking the attack.
On several occasions, Obama insulted Britain and displayed hostility toward the Jewish state. Yet he restored diplomatic ties with Cuba, rescuing its Communist government and giving powerful enemies a path to pressure and threaten America from less than 100 miles away. He enthusiastically supported international organizations like the corrupt World Health Organization and the anti-Israel, anti-American United Nations. He eagerly participated in the Paris Climate Accords, which strangled America’s industry and economy.
Such pernicious actions characterized everything Barack Obama did as president. We will study more deeply into several of them in this book. These are the actions of a man and his cabal “fundamentally transforming” a nation he viewed as fundamentally evil.
Yet the truth is, Barack Obama was used as a tool by a spirit being with far greater hatred of America.
Most people will not talk about this, but it is the truth, and only the truth will make us free (John 8:32; 17:17).
Most people say they believe the Bible. I would like you to think about the example recorded in 1 Samuel 16:14 and 19:9-10 of King Saul of Israel, who was troubled by an evil spirit and tried to kill the man God chose to replace him.
Do you believe it is possible that an evil spirit could influence the king of Israel? It has happened—a number of times.
The Apostle Paul made a profound statement in 2 Corinthians 2:11. He said that we had better not be ignorant of the devices of the devil, or else we will become his victims.
The devil is real. The devil lives! People scoff, but they won’t be scoffing long. They will soon realize how ignorant they were of Satan’s devices and wiles.
Many historical and prophetic biblical passages show how Satan works through human beings, particularly through men in positions of power. One stunning and detailed example appears in the eighth chapter of the book of Daniel.
Daniel’s prophecy is specifically for this end time—and for no other time (Daniel 12:4, 9). The last part of Daniel 8:17 reads, “Understand, O son of man, that the vision is for the time of the end” (Revised Standard Version). In verse 26, God told Daniel to seal up the vision, “for it relates to the far future” (Moffatt). Many of the events described in this chapter were fulfilled in type in the centuries after Daniel recorded them in 550 b.c. However, even those events point to this prophecy’s primary fulfillment, which occurs in the end time, the final years of the age of man just before the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
Beginning in verse 9 is a prophecy of a “little horn” that arose from one of the four divisions of the Grecian Empire. Virtually all commentaries agree this was a prophecy of Antiochus iv Epiphanes, a deceptive, wicked Seleucid king who obtained rule in Palestine in 176 b.c. through deceit and flattery.
While peoples in other areas were allowed to keep their religions, Antiochus wrathfully destroyed many Jewish men, women and children, and tried to destroy the Jewish faith itself. He robbed the temple, set up a pagan altar and an idol of himself inside it, murdered or enslaved tens of thousands of Jews in Jerusalem, and burned and demolished much of the city.
This man was clearly heavily influenced if not possessed by the devil, who used him for shockingly destructive ends. We will study more into this historical example later in the book.
Commentaries acknowledge Daniel’s prophecy was fulfilled in the second century b.c. What they do not understand is that this “little horn” prophecy also has an end-time fulfillment, which is most important. Again, Daniel’s prophecy is for the end time—our time today.
The end-time fulfillment of this prophecy is detailed and significant, and I explain it in my booklets Daniel—Unsealed at Last! and Daniel Unlocks Revelation (request your free copies). This prophecy is ultimately speaking of a leader in Europe who will unite a terrifying European empire that will attack America and the other modern-day nations of Israel.
What I will show you in this book, however, is the evidence that America has been ruled from within by another type of Antiochus. For eight years, this man used deceit and flattery as he sabotaged the nation from the top of our own government! I realize this is an explosive claim, but the evidence is abundant. Daniel’s prophecy provides extraordinary insight into our nation’s political crisis.
I have been warning about Mr. Obama and his anti-American ambitions since before he became president. During his presidency, I explained that he was an Antiochus-type who sought the destruction of our constitutional republic. This was the main theme of my much smaller 2013 booklet America Under Attack.
When Mr. Obama left the White House in January 2017, some said this was a failed prophecy. He was no longer president, and it appeared he had little influence on American politics, especially as his successor tried to undo much of his work. But as you will read in this book, the truth is that this Antiochus never left the political scene. Even after leaving the White House, he continued working his agenda. And he has never stopped trying to undermine America.
Barack Obama came as an “angel of light,” and millions of Americans believed and still believe him. But as president, was he the guardian of America’s “democratic institutions and traditions—like rule of law”? Did he leave the “instruments of our democracy at least as strong as [he] found them”?
He did precisely the opposite. Focus on his actions. Look at his fruits. Anybody should be able to see past the “angelic” artifice and recognize the real power at work. His fruits define what he meant by “fundamentally transforming America.”
Abraham Lincoln was perhaps the greatest president America ever had. He said, “I am nothing, but truth is everything.” Lincoln received that understanding from the Bible (e.g. John 8:31-32; 2 Thessalonians 2:10). God helped us through men like Lincoln, who believed the truth is everything.
What happens, however, if the people and their leaders don’t believe that? What if you believe and follow and propagate lies? Then you are following the “father of lies.”
That makes Barack Obama a very dangerous man!
