SNOPES IS WRONG AGAIN

Sometimes we have to vent. I have seen a real change in the way people interact since the Obama campaign began. I thought hostility was at an all time high when George W. Bush was president, but that can't compare to what is happening now. Not only is our country polarized into two factions, those for Obama and those against him, but estrangements between friends and families is on the rise. These rifts are not being caused for the usual reasons: divorce, in-law problems, inheritance, money, etc. They're occurring because people are so entrenched in their political beliefs, particularly those who support Obama, that they are unwilling to hear any dissenting views. I mean they actually get furious if someone, a friend or family member, sends them e-mails containing opinions or articles that take issue with the Obama party line.

Here's one example that I learned about from a friend. Several months ago, she sent a family member, who calls herself a journalist, information that Obama signed an executive order granting Palestinians from Gaza the right to come to this country, to travel here and to stay here, and $20 million dollars was allocated to start the migration. These are people who could very well be Hamas terrorists, but that did nothing to stop Obama from signing the order. The "journalist" fired back an e-mail telling her it was a hoax according to Snopes. But, in fact, it was not a hoax as proven by the citation of the executive order now published in the Federal Register. Here's the e-mail she sent that discredits Snopes:


You just spent $20,000,000+ to move members/supporters of Hamas, a
terrorist organization, to the United States ; housing, food, the whole
enchilada.

HB 1388 PASSED

Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U. S. needs to
know....

Something happened.... H.R. 1388 was passed, behind our backs. You may want to read about it.. It wasn't mentioned on the news...just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen.

Obama funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA. This is the news that didn't make the headlines... By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza.

The "presidential determination", which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with possible ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States,was signed and appears in the Federal Register.

Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas)in the parliamentary election of January 2006.

Let's review....itemized list of some of Barack Obama's most recent actions since his inauguration:

His first call to any head of state, as president, was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory.

His first one-on-one television interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television.

His first executive order was to fund/facilitate abortion(s) not just here within the U.S., but within the world, using U. S. tax payer funds.

He ordered Guantanamo Bay Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted.

He ordered overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.

He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and the "terror attack" on 9/11.

Now we learn that he is allowing hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.

These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bail-outs and "stimulation" packages.

Doubtful? To verify this for yourself:www.the federalregister.com/d.p/2009-02-04-E9-2488

PLEASE PASS THIS ON...AMERICA NEEDS TO KNOW

WE are losing this country at a rapid pace.

Above is the e-mail my friend forwarded to her "journalist" relative with a short note reminding her that HB1388 was not a hoax as Snopes reported. She said, "There is a lag time between the signing of a presidential order and the time it gets into the Federal Register. Snopes--wrong again," based on a prior incorrect call by Snopes that an item not favorable to Obama was labeled a hoax. Her relative told her to stop sending anything political and called her a "bully" for sending her the correction.

After that exchange, her relative removed her as a friend on Facebook, an obvious rebuff that was hurtful. "I guess I have to assume that she and I are estranged, and what is most shocking is the fact that she is a reporter. How she can call herself a journalist is beyond me."

I am seeing this kind of attitude on our mainstream media. The "journalist is in good company. The left wing media: NBC, MSNBC, the NYT, the Washington Post, and the LA Times never reported either the ACORN story or the Van Jones story until it was covered on FOX and the evidence of corruption was irrefutable.

What I am hearing from so many others is the same kind of reaction from the friends and family members who support Obama. This is scary. It's sad, depressing and dangerous for our country.

I do think it is rather unfair of you to comment on the job she does, when describing her family relationship with you. Though, I think you may be indicating her bias, when she is meant to be impartial. I just think that is a little unfair.

Whether the information you provided is right or whether it is wrong is irrelevant. You have the right to say what you say and you can post on here, or send emails to people. I don't see why people would stop being your friend, just because they do not necessarily agree with you.

It is far better to point out things that a Government is doing or not doing, if it is not covered by the main stream media. We can then go away, research it and see if it is correct or not. At least it is then out there, for all of us to discuss.

From my perspective I can see why President Obama does what he does. Equally, I can question certain decisions. There is no reason why you should not be able to do so too.

I would much rather you be you, than curry favour with others, just to make them happy. When you start writing to just make people happy, rather than what pleases you, you might as well just give up.
