Lies and Damned Lies - part 1

It has been almost a month since Barak Obama became the 44th President of the USA. There are already signs that this presidency is shaping up to be one of the worst in history. Within the first week Obama managed to upset the Vatican with the reversal of one of the Bush executive orders which means that the USA will now resume funding for abortions and forcing contraception on overseas (read third world) countries. This is one reason why Pope Benedict gave Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House of Representatives, a bit of a smack during her private audience at the Vatican.

The liberals within the USA seem to think that it is important to enter third world nations and demand that the women either use contraceptives or have abortions. The USA government is now set to resume the funding of abortions in these nations. However, what these liberals do not understand is that people in these countries see things in a very different light when it comes to having children. We most definitely should be alarmed at the way in which abortion is being carried out in India as an example. The use of ultrasound and tests to discover whether the unborn child is a girl or boy has meant that there is now a greater imbalance of boys over girls in that country, because girl foetuses are being aborted at a very fast rate. In China the one child policy has also led to similar problems, and in that country the enforcement of the one child policy has in fact led to the oppression of the population. Thus, by reversing the executive order Barak Obama is in fact endorsing this form of oppression in China. However, the real goal is not either China or India, but third world Muslim countries but in these countries the people are against these policies – and they are inappropriate for other reasons.

In some of the poorest countries in the world the women who are fecund are at risk of dying whilst giving birth. The risk is high because they do not have access to hospitals, or to highly skilled medical staff. It is the lack of proper facilities that is the major cause of maternal deaths in these countries – yet the liberals will tell us that what is needed is more abortions. Also, this form of funding only serves to give rise to other unseemly practices where contraceptives that western women refuse to use are dumped upon these 3rd world countries – this happened in the past when IUDs were dumped in India and there was an increase in women suffering harm from this form of contraception.

The kind of message that is being sent to these poorer nations is not a message of good will, rather it is a message of bad will – genocide via getting rid of the unborn. What these liberals are really saying is that these people do not deserve to have children, let alone exist. Therefore, it is better to eliminate the problem by eliminating the children, leading in the end to the genocide of a nation by stealth.

However, the reversal of this one executive order is just the beginning of the shambles that is the Obama Administration. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were given the task of drafting a bill that has been dubbed “porkulus” and with good reason. There is so much pork or earmarks in that bill, that it really makes Barak Obama into the biggest liar out when he states that there is no pork in the bill. The size of the spending in the bill is astounding. The bill is supposed to be a response to an economic crisis, yet once the details are examined there is little in the short term that will be achieved. In the long term the American people will find themselves saddled with an extremely high debt such that the GDP will in fact fall, not increase. The hasty manner in which this bill was passed means that few if anybody had the opportunity to examine all of the provisions within the document. On top of that the Obama administration promised there would be transparency and bi-partisanship, yet Reid and Pelosi excluded the Republicans from input in the first place, and instead of the Bill being posted to the internet for 5 days prior to its acceptance, there was absolutely no transparency, to the point that members of the House  of Representatives and the Senate had not bothered to read the document before voting. This kind of action is fiscal irresponsibility.
