A New Smear of Obama

I get a lot of crazy email messages, usually they have been forwarded from and to many other people and I usually can debunk them by going to Snopes but I got one today that Snopes didn't have in their database.

I sent a copy of the email to Snopes and I quickly received a reply. I was so impressed.

First, here's the email I received and following that will be the response from Snopes:

Just one week ago , I sent out this first piece for your information... to check the site and then I coined the phrase: Messiahship Status... speaking Messiahshipeze ... now with this latest article, and adding up the "Signs in the Heavens, and the Signs on the earth... that reeks with lawlessness and evil in every form, with the church joining in with agnostics, etc, etc, and on the slippery side of life ... YIKES and DOUBLE YIKES...................................

SOooooooo, read on reader, and would you not agree that: time is rushing quickly ahead??? Better not be lagging behind, and thinking there is yet TIME before Revelation is fulfilled.....HHhhmmmm... best you get head off of that cloud, and run like crazy towards GOD... in three persons... Blessed Trinity... Amen & Amen!

Note the language.. Messiahship status....This language is Messiahshipeze...) Louis Farakhan said at his latest annual Saviours' Day celebration....."This young man is the hope of the entire world.... America will change and be made better...A black man with a white mother became a savior to US"

Wow !!!! I believe it is time to re-read Isaiah 9.. and refresh our minds as to what qualifications are necessary for "Messiahship"... then keep those key words in your mind when you hear an illustrious speech that instills HOPE , etc... Messiahshipeze is easy speak, and comes from the opposite side of the truth....

.... Now read what has just come out in Texas, and let me know what you think!! Are we not getting close to something spoken of centuries ago?? P.U.S.H. and spread the WORD... The Messiah is coming... ARE READY??? Remember: not all who say "LORD LORD", will enter into the gates of heaven and spend Eternity with Our Elohim.... Ramona... PUSH PUSH PUSH

Obama heals hundreds!
AUSTIN — Ginny McCallum, 43, who has been confined to a wheelchair for much of her adult life, came to hear presidential candidate Barack Obama speak at the University of Texas. Afterward she found herself in a wheelchair access breezeway as Obama and his entourage exited the arena. The candidate spotted her, came over, grabbed her hand and pulled her up. She found herself standing for the first time in eleven years.

"He smiled at me and said, ‘Yes, you can,’" she says. "I was so stunned I didn’t know what to do."

McCallum is among hundreds of people who say they have been healed by the Democratic candidate, in one of the most surprising and little-acknowledged aspects of his campaign. Reporters have shied away from the story, chalking it up to "Obama-mania" and people’s feelings of elation.

"We don’t talk about it a lot, but yeah, it does happen," says one staffer who says he has seen multiple people healed on a rope line. "We don’t know exactly how or why it’s happening, and the Senator won’t talk about it. He usually insists that people keep it quiet and just report it to their pastor or priest."

Greeting supporters after a rousing speech in Houston, Obama stepped into the dense crowd and spontaneously began touching people: a legally blind woman, a man deaf in one ear, a cancer sufferer and a lame man.

"Yes, you can," Obama said as he laid hands on afflicted bodies.

The people’s reactions were so joyous as to be almost frightening. They jumped and shouted and wept. Before they could thank or embrace the candidate he was well down the rope line healing others. Their excitement was lost in the general din of the crowd.

Aides acknowledge that the phenomenon is occurring with greater frequency.
"His power goes beyond simple inspiration," says one aide. "There is something developing here that I’m not sure any of us fully understands."

They say Obama has told them privately that his time has not yet come, so it would be inappropriate to talk about the healings right now. He says he will wait until the convention to speak publicly about the "special calling" he believes he has to lead the country. They do expect him to start alluding to "the providential nature of what is happening on the campaign trail" in an upcoming address, mostly because word is getting around.

People have begun bringing relatives by the score to campaign events in hopes of a healing touch.

"It’s not the speeches that are drawing people anymore, as good as they are," says a senior staff member. "It’s people wanting to get better, and wanting their friends and relatives to get better. It’s the belief that there’s something more here." •

Here's the response I received from Snopes:

See Lark News, a satire site. It publishes humor pieces, not news stories.

So these gullible people are now circulating a satire piece as actual news! That's probably why they voted for Bush (gullible). You gotta love it.
