What Could Have Been
If there ever was a president who had the opportunity to be great, it was Barack Obama. He had everything going for him…intelligence, a great speaker, the first black to hold the office. He had the nation’s full attention and trust. Even many of those that did not vote for him had hopes. But it wasn’t to be.
The chip on his shoulder that appeared after election day only grew with time. His tendency to go against the grain, to move in directions contrary to American values, to constantly be out of step and almost antagonistic toward his own country and its institutions – his affinity with speaking down to us mere citizens while preaching and saying anything it took to get his way – his treatment of both our friends and enemies gave us suspicious friends and devoted enemies. It all took a mighty toll.
Still, there are those who will follow, over the cliff, if need be. For many true believers, their allegiance was grounded in the massive investment in the ridding of the self-induced guilt of slavery and their desire for a more compassionate government, if that is possible. They weren’t about to easily divest at such a cost.
Their misguided guilt and blind devotion along with a worthless Congress unwilling to be labeled racist, has doubled our national debt, given us the worst race relations in at least fifty years, an economy stuck in the doldrums, a healthcare industry turned upside down, a growing crime rate, which previously had been slipping for decades, thanks in part to open borders, and a world more dangerous than ever with a military less able to cope with it.
Obama’s self-confidence along with his diverse upbringing, could have served him well. It didn’t. Being half white and half black, President Obama could have brought us together. He did not. Obama could have preserved our investment in lives and treasure in the Middle East. He chose not to. Obama could have used solid free-market principles to grow the economy and create jobs. He didn’t do it. Instead, he relied upon a massive welfare state to ‘protect’ the less fortunate and used ‘creative accounting’ to make the unemployment rate look trivial.
In foreign affairs, he took sides and not with his own country. He was more wary of America than he was of our enemies. He claims to be a Christian, but, as president, never goes to church and insists that Christian symbols be covered when speaking in churches. His fondness for anything Muslim and distrust for Western culture and ideals gave him a well-deserved suspicion among many Americans.
President Obama could have been great. He spoke many times of prejudice, but couldn’t escape his own. The influences of his younger years proved too strong.
Having spent much of his youth in South East Asia, he could be characterized as an immigrant president that refuses to assimilate. He did, after all, promise to fundamentally transform America. To Obama, it was us that had it all wrong.
Obama was not ‘The One’ spoken of by Oprah Winfrey in 2007. Instead, he’s a man filled with serious flaws and inconsistencies with questionable allegiances. He swore to uphold the Constitution but routinely ignores it. He’s a man almost without a country; a seemingly uncaring man that inspires only the hateful to do ill…a president of missed opportunity…too bad.
Stand Up America depends on your support to help the many organizations that work tirelessly to preserve our nation as founded.

Islamic State Uses Chain Saw to Hack Teens in Half
Islamic State reportedly tied nine young men to iron poles in Mosul before hacking them in half with a chain saw. ISIS Sharia sentenced them to death for involvement in a resistance movement. The young men were executed in public. Breitbart
Editor’s note: There have been thousands of civilians murdered in Mosul since ISIS took control of the city in 2014. Some of the methods have been: boiling alive, thrown off buildings, and dissolved to death by using nitric oxide. This incident will not been included in the terror update until the details have been confirmed.

Gun Ownership at 44% of All Households & Rising
After a steady decline in recent years, gun ownership is on the rise. CBS polling gave it a low of 36% while Pew Research says it is now at 44% of all households. Washington Examiner
Editor’s note: Interestingly, the sample size was more heavily democrat than republican–831 republicans to 981 democrats–680 Hillary Clinton supporters to 581 Trump supporters.
Atheists Fear Spontaneous Conversion from Hotel Bibles
The Bible has been banned at a hotel operated by Arizona State University. The Freedom From Religion Foundation complained that Bibles were offered at a hotel operated by a State-run institution.
Editor’s note: I would say hold up a cross to keep the Bible away, but I guess that won’t work.
“Donald Trump is an Anti-Semite”
That is rich! According to many in the Clinton campaign and others, Donald Trump is an anti-Semite.
All of Trump’s children, save his youngest son, Barron, have married Jews. Ivanka Trump not only married a Jew, she converted to Judaism when she married.
Having been born and reared in Brooklyn, New York in a neighborhood where they closed the schools on Jewish holidays (yaaay), I know what I am talking about. The majority of my friends were Jewish.
Many of the finger pointers who are quick to raise the anti-Semitic flag are called self-hating Jews…liberal ‘Jews’ that hold antisemitic views. They are barely cultural Jews, having no knowledge or desire to practice their religion. They are anti-Israel, and for the most part, atheistic. They turn their Jewishness on and off as needed. They are as Jewish as George Soros.
To call someone an anti-Semite is just another liberal weapon much like the weapon many blacks and other groups use…RACIST!…and these liberals have no resistance to using it as often as they need to, to get as much traction as they can. They would have been in the front row of any Salem witch trial. They are despicable.
The liberals are so desperate to elect another progressive to the presidency, they will overlook massive corruption, exploitation, graft, deceit, lying, obfuscation and maybe even murder.
Enough is enough!!
In Case You Missed It
The Dark Side of Diversity – Freedom Go To Hell
What so many people, especially Democrats and European liberals, refuse to understand, refuse to admit, and refuse to deal with is that much of Islam is incompatible with Western culture. In their quest to be ‘progressive’ they have become fools.
Liberals think they have found an ally against conservatives, but in their ignorance and naiveté, if Islam should become a powerful political force in this country, liberal Democrats will be the first casualties in any conflict. Muslims may smile with them in temporary compliance, but in reality, hate everything they stand for.
Islam is not merely a religion, it is also a socio-political movement.
If anyone thinks it is only a few Muslims that are dangerous, know that it was only a few Nazis that turned the world upside down. The peaceful Muslims, as welcome as they are, are irrelevant.
This is not bigotry!
This is no longer some political one-upmanship game, this has become a serious life-threatening issue!

Great Political Comebacks & Insults in History
Teddy Roosevelt Vs. Everybody
Teddy Roosevelt, 26th President, 1901 – 1909
State Legislator, Police Commissioner, Governor of New York, worked a ranch in the Dakotas, Secretary of the Navy, fought as a Rough Rider in the Spanish-American War, President for two terms, wrote 35 books, read tens of thousands of books–sometimes several a day, discovered & navigated an uncharted Amazonian river over 400 miles long and named it (Rio Teodoro), earned the Nobel Prize and Medal of Honor (posthumously).
President Roosevelt had no shortage of insults for his adversaries and the less admired:
“When they call the roll in the Senate, the senators do not know whether to answer “Present” or “Not Guilty.”
“A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education he may steal the whole railroad.”
“No one cares about how much you know, until they know how much you care.”
“I could have carved out of a banana a judge with more backbone than that.”
– On Supreme Court justice Oliver Wendell Holmes
“If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month.”
“To educate a person in the mind but not in morals is to educate a menace to society.”
“Every immigrant who comes here should be required within five years to learn English or leave the country.” Editor’s note: I guess he wouldn’t have approved of “press one for English.”
“Please put out the light.” Last words
