An audience of 20,000 people gathered in Chicago two days ago to listen to President Barack Obama’s farewell address to the nation. Millions more watched from home as the crowd shouted, “Four more years! Four more years!”
How will the American people remember him? If the past eight years did not show them who he is, I suspect they will remain in the dark for years to come. As he leaves office, 55% of Americans approve of his job performance (Source: Gallup Poll of 1500 Americans, Jan 10 2017).
Obama presented himself as having done great things for America and the world, but this post presents hard facts exposing his lies and the great damage he has done.
Obama’s Economic Disasters
In his speech, Obama said, “If I had told you eight years ago that America would reverse a great recession, reboot our auto industry, and unleash the longest stretch of job creation in our history…”
At that point, the crowd interrupted with applause, just as deceived as they were back in 2008. I find it truly amazing, like watching the old films from Nazi Germany and wondering how that happened, but it seems unreal because this is America and this is today.
Obama’s claim about unleashing the longest stretch of job creation in our history is based on manipulated unemployment rates published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The government controlled mainstream news media promotes those rates, even though the BLS has a long history of discrediting their data by changing the way they calculate the rates (Source: Shadowstats.com). Their numbers show the unemployment rate dropped from 7.8% when Obama took office in January 2009 to 4.7% in December 2016 (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics), which sounds good until we see the real numbers.
The red line shows the official government BLS unemployment rates for the past twenty years. The blue line shows the real Shadowstats unemployment rate. If the BLS was honest and used the same calculation methods used in the 1990’s, the real unemployment rate would be about 23% instead of 4.7%. And instead of dropping during Obama’s two terms, it went up from 20% when Obama took office to 23% now. (Source: Shadowstats.com)
The Shadowstats unemployment numbers are confirmed by the best measure of unemployment, which is the labor force participation rate. It shows the percentage of Americans employed, rather than unemployed, so it is black and white, much harder to fudge the numbers. This rate dropped sharply during Obama’s two terms, from 65.7% in January 2009 to 62.7% in December 2016, which was the lowest level in 38 years, since February 1978 when President Jimmy Carter nearly destroyed our economy in just one term. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics)
Think about it. The BLS claims the rate dropped sharply during Obama’s two terms while at the same time the labor force participation rate dropped sharply. Both cannot drop at the same time because they have an inverse relationship. The BLS is feeding us a bunch of BS and Shadowstats is exposing them.
Does that look like the longest stretch of job creation in our history? Yet, millions of American people believe this deceiver’s ridiculous claims. He is a liar and we need to call him on it.
For those 62.7% of Americans fortunate enough to have jobs, the quality of jobs today is much lower than it was eight years ago. High paid professional people are more likely to settle for a lower paying or part time job today than ever before. More college graduates are living in their parent’s home than ever before because the quality of jobs is not good enough to allow them to get their own place. For example, under President Obama, America lost over 301,000 manufacturing jobs. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics) President Obama somehow forgot to mention that.
When Obama claimed, “If I had told you eight years ago America would reverse a great recession,” he was referring to bogus manipulated GDP numbers from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). Their numbers show the United States economy, as measured by the GDP growth rate, grew anywhere from 1% to 3% during most of Obama’s two terms with only a few negative quarters. The government controlled mainstream news media promotes these numbers, but according to Shadowstats, the real GDP growth rate shows the economy shrank every quarter during the past eight years without a single positive number, ranging from -1% to -6%. (Source: Shadowstats.com)
The red line shows the bogus GDP growth rates published by the BEA. The blue line shows the real GDP growth rates published by Shadowstats. By definition, a recession is defined as two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth. America has had 32 consecutive quarters during Obama’s two terms. Yet, he has the audacity to claim we have reversed a great recession. He is a fraud and a liar.
Even using the manipulated data from the BLS and BEA, our economic “recovery” following the 2008 collapse of the housing market has been the worst recovery since the 1940’s.
During Obama’s terms, the rate of homeownership in the United States dropped from 68.1% in the second quarter of 2009 to just 62.9% in the third quarter 2016, which was the lowest number since the Census Bureau first started tracking it in 1964. (Source: Census Bureau).
After Obama’s two terms, Americans are far more dependent on the federal government for their food supplies than ever before in our history. The number of Americans receiving food stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP) skyrocketed from 28.2 million the year before Obama took office to 44.2 million in 2016, his final year in office, a whopping 57% increase!
Does that look like a nation that reversed a great recession? These numbers indicate we went from recession into depression as 16 million Americans were added to the food stamp program during Obama’s terms.
Thanks to President Obama, America is far deeper in debt than we have ever been before. His administration doubled our national debt from $10.0 trillion in 2008 to $20.0 trillion by the time he leaves office (Source: Wikipedia and NationalDebtClocks.org). He added more to it than every other President combined.
Obama did everything he could possibly do to destroy our economy, adding a record 2,988 new regulations, which added $873.6 billion in economic costs since he took office, including $344 billion in new EPA regulations (Source: American Action Forum)
What about the stock market? It is hitting record highs. Yes, and it is no longer even remotely connected to market factors. Since 2008, the final traces of our free market were put to rest as the Federal Reserve took full control of not just equities, but also bonds, metals, currencies, and housing. Since then, investors stopped caring about market fundamentals and concerned themselves with only one question, “What will the Fed think about that?”
With unlimited ability to create more money and prevented by law from being subject to any audits, the Fed has free reign to make the market do whatever they choose, not for the benefit of the American people, but for their own purposes, promoting their own agenda. The stock market no longer tells us anything about the true condition of our economy.
In 2011, President Obama forced his signature legislation, Obamacare, through Congress by a series of illegal voting procedures. It was officially called the Affordable Care Act, but has proven itself to be the unaffordable care act. 2017 Obamacare premiums are increasing 25% on average. 2017 premiums in Arizona are increasing by 116% (Health and Human Services).
In a speech to the American Medical Association in Chicago on June 15 2009, Obama promised the American people, “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. Period.” Both statements proved to be lies as millions of Americans have been forced to leave the doctors and their healthcare plans.
Obama also promised the average American family would save $2,500 in annual healthcare costs, but just the opposite happened. The average family is paying $3,069 more in 2016 than 2011. Premiums for employer-sponsored family health coverage have steadily increased since Obamacare started, as shown in these numbers for 2016 versus 2011 and the chart below.
- Average annual cost for individual coverage increased from $5,429 to $6,435, which was an increase of $1,006 or 18.5% versus 2011.
- Average annual cost for family coverage increased from $15,073 to $18,142, which was an increase of $3,069 or 20.3% versus 2011 (Source: Exhibit 1.11 from Annual Surveys by Kaiser Family Foundation).
Costs are expected to increase even more in the future because many insurers are exiting from the Obamacare exchanges due to losing a lot of money. I believe the plan for Obamacare all along was to make the federal government the sole provider for healthcare insurance as part of an larger scheme to make the American people more dependent on the government. It was a disastrous power shift in the wrong direction.
Obama’s Foreign Policy Disasters
In Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claims to have iron clad proof Obama orchestrated and promoted the United Nations resolution to divide the land of Israel, which was approved by the UN Security Council on December 23 2016. This is by far the greatest disaster Obama has caused so far. The consequences for the United States and the World will be devastating because Israel is the apple of God’s eye (Zechariah 2:8). God has promised to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling for the nations of the world in these last days. He will make it a heavy stone that will severely injure all who lift it (Zechariah 12:2-3).
President Obama’s irresponsible Middle East policies and statements, starting with his Cairo Egypt speech in 2009, ignited chaos as governments were overthrown in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya. Libya had been a stable peaceful nation for many years. Today their country remains in shambles, chaos, and confusion. In Egypt, Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood government that ruled temporarily after the overthrow of longtime U.S. ally President Hosni Mubarak. He even sent them $1.5 billion in lethal military aid, then halted it after they were thrown out of office.
The government of Syria has somehow survived after five years of attacks, not from a civil war, as the mainstream western news media describes it, but from Islamic militants recruited from other Middle Eastern countries, as well as other nations around the world, all funded, equipped, and trained primarily by the United States and Saudi Arabia. Nearly half of Syria’s 11 million people have been forced to flee their homes with 5 million leaving the country and another 6.6 million displaced within Syria. Over 300,000 people have been killed, including over 86,000 civilians (Source: IBTimes.com).
Because of his actions in the Middle East, the United States lost power and influence and today we are no longer the dominant arbiter of conflicts between nations. A new sheriff came to town when Russian military forces moved into Syria and declared a no-fly zone. The U.S. was forced to back down and allow Russia to dictate events.
In Libya, Obama violated the War Powers Act by launching a military attack without Congressional approval. The Libyan government was overthrown and their high powered weapons were plundered and secretly shipped north to Syria through Turkey and south to Nigeria, all to equip Islamic militants waging jihad. The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, was part of the secret gun running operation. He and several other Americans were brutally murdered in Benghazi as U.S. forces were ordered to stand down.
I believe Obama’s actions in Syria and Libya are part of the fulfillment of the ancient prophecy, “He shall grow strong in power, shall cause fearful destruction.” (Daniel 8:24)
In Iran, Obama gave away $150 billion in U.S. taxpayer dollars in an agreement Iran refused to sign. The agreement allows them to continue development of nuclear weapons, which are likely to cause disasters in the future.
In Ukraine, Obama’s State Department orchestrated an overthrow of the elected government causing great pain and suffering as civil war was ignited, bringing us dangerously close to war with Russia.
These are just a few examples of Obama’s disastrous foreign policies.
Obama continued saying, “If I had told you we would win at marriage equality and secure the right to health insurance for another 20 million of our fellow citizens…” Again, the crowd roared their approval. He continued, “If I had told you all that, you might of said our sights were set a little too high.”
That is about as upside down as it gets. The destruction of the institution of marriage between a man and a woman was not a victory, but a defeat of one of the foundational pillars of our society based on our Judeo-Christian values. Obama’s two radical left wing Supreme Court appointments led to this moral disaster. This ruling not only rocked the family unit, but opened the doors for a flood of confusion, gender confusion, which is now ravaging and destroying our young people like a plague. Yet, President Obama brags about it and calls it a win. This man is pure evil.
There is only one opinion that matters on this issue and it is God’s opinion, which is clearly revealed in scriptures. Homosexuality is an abomination to God (Leviticus 18:22-30, Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:18-32, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 1 Timothy 1:8-11, Revelation 22:14-15). Anyone interested in pleasing God must throw out their own opinion to follow Him with childlike faith. In His wisdom, He created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.
Great Deception in America
In early 2014, when I asked God about the identity of Barack Obama, I immediately saw a vision. I was so amazed by what I saw I did not tell anyone for six months. Little by little, God gave me confirmations, which caused my confidence to grow until I was finally willing to share it, as shown below.
I saw President Obama riding on a white horse leading armies of soldiers on horses across America. They were riding fast, side by side, forming a long line sweeping across the land with Obama in the center. They were waging war against the American people. As soon as they finished sweeping across one region they turned against another region. They were conquering everywhere they went with little or no resistance. It was an all-out war against the American people being fought right here on our own soil.
Then I heard the Lord say, “Was it not written about this one that he would do these things?”
I had no idea what He was talking about. I had started studying the scriptures, but did not recall seeing anything that could explain this vision. So a few days later I looked through the scriptures again and found where it was written by the prophet Daniel. He saw that the antichrist “will take action against the strongest of fortresses with the help of a foreign god” (Daniel 11:39). (See the complete post)
Since then, I have received confirmations from 133 people who have received similar dreams, visions, and words from God exposing the identity of Barack Obama, and the number is growing steadily.
For the past eight years, Barack Obama has been on a mission to fulfill his destiny as the one who takes action against the strongest of fortresses, the United States of America, with the help of a false god named Allah (Daniel 11:39). He has done everything in his power to destroy our nation and has succeeded in doing great damage, as documented in this post. Yet, despite disaster after disaster and lie after lie, the deception remains so great that anyone who speaks the truth is branded as a lunatic. Amazingly, he has successfully deceived millions of Americans into believing he is a good guy, a cool President.
The deception continued until the end. After spending eight years destroying our nation, Obama concluded, “By almost every measure, America is a better, stronger place than it was when we started.” Again the crowd roared with approval.
After his acceptance speech, I saw many people giving him hugs with tears in their eyes as if they were beholding a great hero. It was a great example of what the prophet Daniel saw when he wrote, “By his cunning he shall make deceit prosper under his hand.” (Daniel 8:25)
Although he is scheduled to leave the White House on January 20, based on my dreams, I don’t believe he has completed his assignment yet. For a long time, I wondered why I saw him and his followers riding horses across the land, region by region. I believe it revealed his new role as the President in exile, leading the ground game at the grassroots level, which is what he does best, working as a community organizer, bringing together diverse factions of dissatisfied citizens willing to undermine and weaken our nation. He will be using new tactics, working city by city and region by region, but his assignment remains the same.
In another dream in 2014, I saw the future of America after we had endured a series of great problems. I saw Obama departing on an airplane after these things happened. Since they have not happened yet, I don’t believe he is done yet. The recent UN resolution against Israel is evidence we are moving closer to these events.
In the dream, I spoke with people who worked for President Obama and they still referred to him as President. Even though former Presidents are still called Presidents, they did not seem to be using the title that way. It was clear he was their leader and they were actively working for him. I believe what I saw will come to pass, but I don’t know how or when.
Since Obama is leaving office with a 55% approval rating, and since large numbers of Americans no longer show any regard for our Constitutional processes, perhaps Obama finds his way back into the White House through some kind of crisis. If some shadow government figures behind the scenes were scripting this event ahead of time, they could not have done a better job of keeping that option on the table. These same crowds who roared with approval again and again, would be likely to welcome another chance for their hero.
Another possibility is he operates as leader of a grassroots shadow government organization, a President in exile, a Community Organizer in Chief. One way or another, I believe Obama will eventually complete the assignment recorded in Daniel 11:39 because at the end of the dream I heard the voice of someone standing behind me say, “He has completed his assignment. He is now going to his next assignment. He is truly the antichrist.”
To this day, many Christian leaders still claim Obama is a blessing sent by God. I am convinced many Christians who voted for him in 2008 and 2012 would do it again today if they had the chance. How it is possible to follow Christ while supporting the antichrist? It is a disturbing barometer of the spiritual condition of the Church in America.
How is it possible 55% of Americans can give a thumbs up to a man who spent eight years working to destroy us? Clearly America’s spiritual radar systems are down because otherwise these things could not happen.
Among those who recognize the antichrist spirit operating in Obama, how many are bold enough to share the facts, like the ones presented in this post, with their followers? How many pastors care enough about their people to tell them the truth? Compromise with darkness allows the spirit of antichrist to advance almost completely unhindered.
The spirit of antichrist has a firm grip on America, not just on one man, but on millions who are sadly spellbound by Obama’s lies. That spirit will not politely leave and those people will not suddenly see the light just because a new President moves into the White House. Repentance is the only hope for our future. No man can save our nation, but righteousness exalts a nation (Proverbs 14:34). America must turn to God in humble repentance and do everything in our power to walk uprightly before Him. Those who do will be heirs to great promises of protection and provision.
