In a mass e-mail sent out to supporters by the Democrat Party, Obama admits for the first time that he lied to voters repeatedly about his views on marriage. In fact, if his latest claims are to be believed, Obama has actually been lying to voters for decades, going all the way back to when he launched his political career in the home of Castro-backed communist terrorist Bill Ayers. Despite proudly lying to voters all those years when he claimed to believe in the sacredness of what is today called “traditional” marriage, Obama admitted that one of the reasons he got into politics was to radically change the definition and meaning of the institution underpinning human civilization for millenia.
“To me, creating a more perfect union means doing everything we can possibly do as leaders to make our kids' lives a little better than our own,” Obama said in the e-mail. “To decide that, in this country, health care is a right, not a privilege. To secure the right of marriage equality under the law for every American, no matter who they love. To help make sure our grandkids inherit a healthy planet. All of these things, and so, so many more, are why I got into politics in the first place.”
Leaving aside the dangerous misunderstanding of what a right actually is, the admission, if true, means Obama lied his way into every elected office he has ever held. The first time Obama admitted to believing homosexuals could be “married” was in May of 2012, in the fourth year of his presidency. “I've been going through an evolution on this issue,” he declared in an “historic” interview with a fawning ABC interviewer. “At a certain point, I've just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”
Contrast that with his earlier statements. “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman,” he said in 2008 on MTV. “I am not in favor of gay marriage.” Also in 2008, during a presidential debate moderated by megachurch pastor Rick Warren, Obama went even further. “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman,” he said. “Now, for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. God's in the mix.” In 2010, he told liberal bloggers that he still believed in traditional marriage. He said he was opposed to homosexual “marriage” in 2004, too. In 2011, when a 1996 questionnaire Obama filled out admitting support for destroying marriage was uncovered, White House Director of Communications Dan Pfeiffer said it had been completed by somebody else and that Obama “has never favored same-sex marriage.”
But according to Obama's e-mail today, all of that was actually a lie — he was just deceiving “stupid” voters, as ObamaCare architect John Gruber called Americans, to get elected and advance his extremist agenda that could never advance without lies, deception, dishonesty, and sleazy machinations of all kinds.
Of course, it is not the first time Obama has been exposed lying about his views on marriage. According to Obama campaign operative David Axelrod's book Believer: My Forty Years in Politics, Obama lied to voters about his position on marriage because it would haved been political suicide to tell the truth. “Opposition to gay marriage was particularly strong in the black church, and as he ran for higher office, he grudgingly accepted the counsel of more pragmatic folks like me, and modified his position to support civil unions rather than marriage, which he would term a ‘sacred union,’” Axelrod boasted, admitting that he encouraged Obama to lie.
Obama also lied about the process he said should be used to redefine and undermine marriage across America. “What you're seeing is, I think, states working through this issue, in fits and starts, all across the country. Different communities are arriving at different conclusions, at different times,” he said in the 2012 ABC interview in which he spoke of the “evolution” in his public position (i.e. lies). “And I think that's a healthy process and a healthy debate. And I continue to believe that this is an issue that is gonna be worked out at the local level, because historically, this has not been a federal issue, what's recognized as a marriage.” Just a few years later, his administration was urging the Supreme Court to ignore the Constitution and the American people in order to falsely and ridiculously declare homosexual “marriage” to be a “constitutional right.”
As the late Justice Scalia explained in his dissent in Obergefell v. Hodges, though, the decision may well backfire, with Americans realizing that the court has radically overstepped its bounds. If and when that happens, the American people, through their representatives in Congress or at the state level, could work to put the lawless court in its place, nullifying its illegal edicts, reining in its usurped jurisdiction, and working to constitutionally put it in its constitutional place. With “each decision ... unabashedly based not on law,” Scalia warned, the Court moves “one step closer to being reminded of [its] impotence.”
Beyond the marriage issue, Obama has been caught lying repeatedly. Perhaps most infamously, he told Americans that they could keep their doctors and their health insurance plans if they liked them, knowing this was a lie. “We will keep this promise to the American people,” Obama declared in the summer of 2009 as he was trying to sell the radical overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system to a skeptical public. “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.” He knew, even while saying that, that it was not true, as official documents later revealed and the White House admitted.
Of course, the Obama lies outlined in this article only scratch the surface of the problem. Lying appears to be a way of life for Obama and the corrupt cabal that surrounds him. From climate alarmism and abortion to the war on gun rights and beyond, Obama has shown that he will lie with impunity if he believes it will advance his radical agenda to “fundamentally transform” America. In short, to Obama, the ends justify the means — even if those means involve lies. For a Christian, as Obama claims to be, that is absurd.
While constant lying is common among the political class of both parties, that Obama brags about lying to Americans in a public e-mail says a great deal about the man who claims to see virtually no limits on his usurped power. In short, he lacks morals, and cannot be trusted under any circumstances. In fact, his brazen lies throw into question the legitimacy of everything his administration has done while in office.
In his e-mail boasting of his lies on homosexual “marriage,” Obama said he believed the “progress” that has been forced on Americans via lies and lawlessness could be protected from the American people's growing outrage. “I believe we can go further, and make America even brighter for generations to come,” he said. “But if we're going to do that, we've got to elect Democrats to the White House, to Congress, and to statehouses all across the country.” For the sake of liberty and constitutional government, Americans had better hope he is wrong.
The question that must be asked now: What else is Obama lying about?
