President Obama, Outwardly Respectful But Reprehensibly Radical; Congressman Wilson, Rude But Right

Like the child who said that the Emperor was not wearing any clothes, Congressman Wilson was correct.

God bless The Pray in Jesus Name Project for succinctly showing that Congressman Joe Wilson was right (albeit rude) for shouting that President Obama was lying during his speech to Congress and Pamela Geller for "calling out" Obama on 9/11.

The Pray in Jesus Name Project:

"Congressman shouts 'you lie' during Obama's speech. Was he right?

"Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) issued an apology after his outburst, 'you lie,' toward President Obama during his health care speech to Congress on Wednesday. 'I let my emotions get the best of me,' Wilson said in a statement. 'I extend sincere apologies to the president.' We commend Wilson for his quick humility. But questions remain:

"Did Obama tell lies during the speech? Was Wilson right after all? And why doesn't Obama apologize just as quickly for calling conservatives liars? In their fact-checking, the press confirmed FIVE WHOPPERS told by the President himself:

"OBAMA LIE #1: 'No federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.'

"THE TRUTH: The Capps Amendment to HR 3200 has a Section 4B that reads: 'Abortions for Which Public Funding Is Allowed. -- The services described in this subparagraph are abortions for which the expenditure of Federal funds appropriated for the Department of Health and Human Services is permitted.' The Washington Times reported: 'You can't get more explicit than that.' And exposed Obama's lie too: 'Despite what Obama said, the House bill would allow abortions to be covered by a federal plan and by federally subsidized private plans.' So President Obama lied, plain and simple.

"OBAMA LIE #2: 'I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits either now or in the future. Period.'

"THE TRUTH: The Democrat controlled Congressional Budget Office said Obamacare would add $220 billion to the deficit over 10 years, but will not succeed at shrinking the overall costs of our nation's health care. Republicans claim it's more like $600 billion increased deficit spending. (Confirmed by Associated Press, 9 Sep 09.) Either way, Obama lied.

"OBAMA LIE #3: 'Don't pay attention to those scary stories about how your benefits will be cut... That will never happen on my watch. I will protect Medicare.'

"THE TRUTH: The Washington Post reports Obama proposes 'to squeeze more than $500 billion out of the growth of Medicare over the next decade....[which has] fueled fears that his effort to expand coverage to millions of younger, uninsured Americans will damage elder care. As a result, barely one-third of seniors support a health-care overhaul, several polls found.' (Washington Post, 9 Aug 09) Even the Post admits, Obama lied.

"OBAMA LIE #4: 'If you lose your job or change your job, you will be able to get coverage.'

"THE TRUTH: Whether working or not, rich or poor, you will be ordered to get mandatory government-run health-care coverage, or pay a fine a $3800 fine per family, under the new Senate plan being railroaded through the finance committee by Max Baucus (D-MT). (New York Times, 9 Sep 09). Obama pretends you're 'able' to get coverage, when he knows it's mandatory (with a big tax increase or 'fine' penalty). Obama lied. But the biggest of all...

"OBAMA LIE #5: 'The claim, made not just by radio and cable talk show hosts, but prominent politicians, that we plan to set up panels of bureaucrats with the power to kill off senior citizens, such a charge would be laughable if it weren't so cynical and irresponsible. It is a lie, plain and simple.'

"THE TRUTH: Mandatory 'end of life' counseling in HR 3200 'shall' include counseling every 5 years to the elderly, giving doctors a monetary incentive to persuade you to sign a 'do not resuscitate' (DNR) order to pull the plug on Grandma, just like the Obama administration already pressures all Veterans to sign them. (Confirmed by the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal, read extensive details at And under the British NHS government-run health plan, 'Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors have warned.' (The Daily Telegraph, 2 Sep 09). Dr. Ewing Cook just admitted intentionally killing patients who signed DNR authorizations during Hurricane Katrina. 'I gave her medicine so I could get rid of her faster…there’s no question I hastened her demise.' Bottom line: Grandma, don't sign Obama's DNR order, even if your doctor gets a bonus check from the President for talking you into that.

"Obama lied at least five times during his speech. Congressman Wilson was right after all."

Ms. Geller:

"Add another Obama insult to injury on 9-11. First, he desecrated the memory of 9-11 with his planned proclamation of his mandatory civilian service on 9-11, which he has designated a 'National Day of Service."' And now 9-11 has yet another title: State Department personnel are supposed to pray with Muslims on the newly declared 'Interfaith Day of Service,' whatever that means on 9-11.

"September 11, which should be a somber day of mourning and reflection (on how the hell we got here), will be a day when Obama -- in a celebratory mode -- makes his big announcement. The whole thing is depraved. And yes, it really is mandatory. The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act - the GIVE Act - calls for a commission to study 'whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed.'

"Meanwhile, an unclassified State Department 'action request' encourages State officials to 'consider organizing an Interfaith Day of Service in their host countries as a way to commemorate the anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001.'"

"Obama means to erase the meaning of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert September 11 into a day of leftist self-congratulation, the advance of government power, and Muslim pandering.

"We don't stop bending over backwards to reach out to and accommodate an ideology that is intent upon destroying us. It's insanity."

Believing that Obama, the most "liberal" United States Senator, would govern as a centrist was insane too, but with the liberal media establishment ignoring the ugly truth that ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief was ready, willing and able to prove, it was ignorance, not insanity, that permitted Obama to win.

Reality: Obama lied to become president and is lying to implement his radical agenda as the candidate of ACORN, SEIU, et al.

Like the child who said that the Emperor was not wearing any clothes, Congressman Wilson was correct.
