Letters to the editor, Sunday, July 1

— Obama's past, associations don't comply with democracy

Dear editor

“All men having power ought to be distrusted,” according to James Madison, who was known as the “Father of the United States Constitution.”

He was the fourth president of the United States and served during the War of 1812. I can’t prove this, but I’ll bet Madison would agree with me that it is foolhardy to put someone in a position of power, such as president of the U.S., that we know nothing about! Blame in large amounts fall on the traditional media, both broadcast and print. Never before have we elected a chief executive that we know nothing about.

Let’s not forget the ridiculous strategy of the GOP leadership. They thought it would be a mistake to talk about Mr. Obama’s past, including his past and present associations. Did not Mom and Dad always say “Birds of a feather, flock together”?

Obama’s mother divorced his father and she married another Marxist. His mentors as a child were communists. He has spent his entire life surrounded by communists. Having trouble thinking of some names? Ever hear of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, also known as the “unrepentant terrorist”? Professor Ayers and his wife, also a professor, have been working for the overthrow of the government of the U.S. since the 1960s. Dohrn and Bill Ayers founded the far left “Weather Underground.” This organization was committed to the violent overthrow of the U.S. government.

One bombing resulted in murder charges against Ms. Dohrn. She also spent several years on the FBIs Most Wanted list. Among her other accomplishments, Ms. Dohrn was/is an officer of the “Students for a Democratic Society.” The name obviously is to confuse you into believing this isn’t a communist organization. Once asked if she was a leftist, Bernadine Dohrn replied, “I am a revolutionary communist.”

Why bother to speak of these two?

They happen to be best friends with Barack Hussein Obama. Mr. Obama announced his intention to run for office from the Ayers/Dohrn home!! More recently Ayers is helping to keep the “occupy” movement well organized and funded with money from George Soros, a billionaire “monetary terrorist” who also happens to own a lot of our information sources in the U.S. His money goes to ACORN, MoveOn.org, Modern Matters and many others. Mr. Soros is also a big supporter of B. Obama, having contributed millions of dollars to his campaign.

In spite of his radical associations, the traditional media calls Mr, Obama a “middle of the road” Democrat. He has most recently been referred to as a “European socialist,” Rush Limbaugh and others are finally openly referring to the president as a Marxist!! Those who did not grow up in post-World War II America might ask “What is wrong with a Marxist/communist?”

Hayward S. Bellah,

Hudson Oaks

  • PASTOR POPHIN: The joy of unity in church

    Do you enjoy going to church? I mean, do you really enjoy going to church? No matter how you answer, there are some common reasons — or perhaps we would call them conditions — that would cause all of us to truly enjoy going to church.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Don't judge a book...

    Dear Editor: Thursday night, July 17, I was present for a surprisingly interesting experience when state representative candidate Matthew Britt addressed a small group of supporters, followed by a question and answer session.

    Many years ago, shortly after I retired from the navy, I was sitting around shooting the breeze with my brother David, when he remarked that he regretted never serving in the military and experiencing the things I had seen. Like most of our farmer ancestors, he spent his entire life within five miles of where he grew up. Not unlike our parents, he could also count on the fingers of one hand the number of times he had even been out of the state of Texas and probably have digits to spare.

    Immigration: Wow! Where are all these illegal boys and girls coming from, and why? The “why” is a big question! I’m sure 5-year-olds are not coming for a better life and income.

  • tiscione, lou.jpg TISCIONE: Signs and seals

    God gave the church signs and seals. These are called sacraments or holy ordinances. They are both holy and commanded. There are two sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ. They are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. These sacraments are often referred to as “secondary doctrine.” They are secondary not because they are unimportant. They are secondary because they are not necessary for salvation.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Response to 'Blame game'

    Dear Editor: It’s not drug cartels telling Central Americans their children won’t be turned away at the border, it is the actions of this administration with its refusal to secure the border and its unilateral rewriting of immigration law. As has been shown, this president and his administration have for some time lied about the security of the border and immigration enforcement.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Sick and tired

    Do you remember hearing Hillary Clinton screaming, “I am sick and tired of people who say if you debate or disagree with this administration somehow you are not patriotic. We should stand up and say, we are Americans and we have a right to disagree with any administration.” Nancy Pelosi said that the swamp needed to be drained and I agree, but I see she and Senator Reid are still splashing around in the slime.

  • larry jones cropped:color NOW HEAR THIS: Paradise Lost

    During this past Fourth of July weekend, I did what I frequently do. I sat in my workshop enjoying a cool breeze, doing absolutely nothing except for trying to stay awake. As I looked to the south toward my shiny aluminum flagpole with Old Glory fluttering in that breeze, I did not feel the great patriotic sense of pride I normally have on this anniversary of the birth of our nation. Instead, I came very close to going out to the pole and lowering our national standard to half-mast to mourn the passing of our once great nation.

  • LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Our officials care

    I take serious exception to Mr. Jay Cloward’s letter, “Big city, no care” (7/8/14) in which he states that it almost looks like the city wants to become a for-profit company and Weatherford has “become a city too big to care.”
