Judging from the controversy coming from the annual White House Correspondent's Balls, you would wonder that a new President who campaigned on the promise of "change you can believe in" would even keep this tradition alive. After all, the very spectacle of a President honoring the very correspondent pool who supposedly forms the "loyal opposition" to the White House tells you that the correspondents covering the Oval Office are not truly an active opposition, but are, in fact, compliant to the President.
What kind of spirit pervades this annual event? After reading the reports of the first Correspondent's Ball under President Obama, and after remembering the sexually deviant remarks which Laura Bush made about her husband in 2005, you will be able to determine the demonic spirit hovering over the event.
Let us now review the rowdy battle which has erupted over the comments made during President Obama's first ever White House Correspondents Ball.
NEWS BRIEF: "Does Sykes' comedy routine deserve laughter or loathing?", Los Angeles Times, May 11, 2009
"Comedians are known for pushing the envelope with their biting commentary on issues, but where does the line between humor and bad taste belong? Comedian Wanda Sykes, who was a featured speaker at the White House Correspondents' Assn. Dinner, is finding herself at the center of that age-old debate after her routine included poking fun at beloved Republican Rush Limbaugh. Jokingly insinuating that Limbaugh might have been the 20th hijacker on 9/11, Sykes commented on the Obama critic's previous prescription drug addiction. But the sparks really flew after Sykes said that she hoped Limbaugh's kidneys would fail, a response to Limbaugh having said he wished the Obama administration would fail."
I watched the video where Wanda Sykes delivered her comments, and found her remarks offensive, especially the three major jabs she chose to throw at Limbaugh:
1) Saying that Limbaugh might have been the 20th highjacker on 9/11
Whatever else you may think of Rush Limbaugh, I can never conceive him doing any traitorous act against the United States. If you think of a white comedian making this remark against a black female entertainer, all hell would have broken loose. All black activist organizations would be up in arms, with the Reverend Al Sharpton leading a protest parade down Pennsylvania Avenue.
But, more importantly, Sykes is implying that Limbaugh is complicit in the murder of almost 3,000 Americans. If he had missed his flight that day, Sykes still has him complicit in the planning and the carrying out of these deadly attacks!
the speech took a very ugly turn when she laid into Limbaugh.
"She called Limbaugh a terrorist and a traitor, suggested that he be tortured and wished him dead. … What was his crime? Hoping that Obama's policies – which he views as socialist – will fail. That's way, way beyond reasoned debate or comedy and Obama's reaction to it was astonishing," he said. "Imagine if a comedian 'joked' that Obama was a terrorist who was guilty of treason and should be tortured and allowed to die. There would justifiably be an outcry.
needed (in her opinion) attitude adjustment.
3) Saying that she hopes Rush's kidneys would fail.
Of course, this is a death sentence, a fact reported by World Net Daily.
NEWS BRIEF: "Rush mum on call for his death: 'What was president thinking?' in laughing", World Net Daily, May 11, 2009
"A flood of harsh criticism has been unleashed on President Obama following last weekend's White House Correspondent's Dinner, where one entertainer suggested death for talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh by stating, 'I hope his kidneys fail'."
"Limbaugh on today's radio program ignored the antics of Wanda Sykes, who appeared at the annual dinner in Washington. But others came quickly to his defense, including Eric Golub at Big Hollywood.
" 'Calling somebody a murderer and wishing for their kidneys to fail, even in the context of a joke, is evil. Yet I don't want Wanda Sykes to die. I don't want her kidneys to fail. I want her to become a better human being. For now, the world will be a better place if Wanda Sykes has one thing fail…her vocal cords', he wrote. "
"WND founder and editor Joseph Farah said, 'Accusing people of treason, terrorism and wishing they would be tortured and die – that's what passed for high comedy at the White House Press Correspondents Dinner Saturday. 'I'm glad I saved $200 per ticket and the cleaning bill that would have followed – not for the tux, mind you, but for the disinfectant I would have needed after rubbing shoulders with those yucking it up over 'jokes' in such bad taste', he said."
One British critic shifted attention from Wanda Sykes to the reaction of President Obama.
"Tony Harnden, U.S. editor for the London Telegraph, said, 'What was Wanda Sykes thinking? Perhaps more to the point, what was President Barack Obama thinking when he laughed and smiled as the comedienne wished Rush Limbaugh dead?' "
"... the speech took a very ugly turn when she laid into Limbaugh. 'She called Limbaugh a terrorist and a traitor, suggested that he be tortured and wished him dead. … What was his crime? Hoping that Obama's policies – which he views as socialist – will fail. That's way, way beyond reasoned debate or comedy and Obama's reaction to it was astonishing', he said. 'Imagine if a comedian 'joked' that Obama was a terrorist who was guilty of treason and should be tortured and allowed to die. There would justifiably be an outcry."
We find out even more about Wanda Sykes that makes her remarks far more offensive than just a casual examination would reveal.
"Wanda Sykes is a black, female, lesbian, liberal. Rush Limbaugh is a white, male, heterosexual, conservative. Therefore, his criticism of Barack Obama's policies are considered hate speech, while her calling Rush a murderer who she wished death upon is considered comedy', he said."
I could not have stated this sad state of affairs more succinctly and with more power. If the "Hate Crimes" bill becomes law, the people who are charged under its provisions will be people who are religiously and politically incorrect. Truly, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder"!
Even the Obama White House recoiled at Sykes' remarks.
"White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said today the subject was not appropriate for a comedy routine."
I have watched these White House Correspondents Balls for a number of years now, and am always amazed at the kinds of antics that go on there. It seems as though a spirit of depravity settles upon the entire affair, causing people who would normally know better to open their mouths and say things that would make "Baalam's ass" blush!
Do you remember Laura Bush's depraved jokes about her husband during the 2005 White House Correspondent's Ball?
Laura Bush's shocking sexual innuendos -- including her reference to her husband masturbating a horse's phallus -- provide a "Smoking Gun" evidence that Mr. Bush's heart is not genuinely Christian. Let us begin our awful story.
NEWS BRIEF: "Laura Bush’s naughty talk", By JOHN TIERNEY, The New York Times, reprinted by "The State", South Carolina
"... on Saturday night, Laura Bush set a new standard. After interrupting her husband and telling him to sit down, she did a stand-up routine that included what was probably the first joke told in earshot of a president that involved him and a horse's phallus. Mrs. Bush called her husband Mr. Excitement for going to bed by 9 o'clock and turning her into a 'desperate housewife'. She said that Lynne Cheney's Secret Service code name became Dollar Bill after they both went to Chippendales (where they ran into Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg). Noting that Andover and Yale did not have 'real strong ranching programs', she said Mr. Bush had started his ranching career by trying to milk a horse - a male horse ... Her timing had the audience howling, and the edgier lines had them gasping. Jokes about pent-up sexual frustration from a prim librarian? With her born-again husband sitting there and enjoying it? And cameras recording it ..."
This one paragraph succinctly expresses the most incredible filth I have ever heard! Let us quickly examine the points Mrs. Bush voiced:
1. Laura said her husband was going to bed so early that she has become sexually dissatisfied. She has now become one of the "Desperate Housewives". In this TV series, housewives who are sexually unfulfilled seduce a wide variety of men who come into their lives. A friend related to me that in the one episode he saw, one of the "desperate housewives" seduced her young gardner! The First Lady's remarks will be seen my millions as a positive endorsement of this awful TV series.
2. Laura's joke about President Bush masturbating the phallus of a horse -- a male horse -- is absolutely unthinkable! The phrase "trying to milk a horse - a male horse" is a farm country idiom which means that Mr. Bush was masturbating a male horse! This is bestiality, and quite disturbing coming from the lips of the First Lady with President Bush sitting there laughing. But, most importantly, it reveals the true heart of Mr. Bush; when you consider Mr. Bush's reaction to her joking, you will see he has a heart of an unsaved sinner!
3. Mr. Bush was just "sitting there and enjoying it"! Look carefully at this picture, above. The President is laughing heartily! If my wife were speaking these filthy jokes, I would have immediately arisen from my chair, walked quickly up to the stage with as stern a face as I could muster, and take my wife away from the microphone and off the stage. By sitting there and enjoying it, President Bush signaled to the entire world that he approved of what his wife was saying and considered her remarks not only acceptable, but enjoyable.
4. Mrs. Bush then stated that she was bar-hopping with Mrs. Cheney, when they ran into Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg at a showing of the Chippendales -- a male stripping group! Mrs. Cheney was so enthused by their stripping performance, she jammed so many One Dollar Bills into the G-String of the male strippers that the Secret Service began calling her, "Dollar Bill".
Once again, we see filthy, sexually explicit language from Mrs. Bush -- approved by Mr. Bush -- and a signal to the youth of America that this "born again" President finds nothing wrong with a person viewing a stripper performance on-stage, or in engaging in the kind of gutter sexual innuendo that would make a bunch of sailors blush.
Mr. Bush showed his true inner heart of hearts by allowing his wife to continue, but most importantly, by laughing along with the rest of the audience. Further, he did not apologize to the American people, nor did he order his White House Press Corps to issue an apology. No apology will ever be coming from his lips.
These two incidents reveal the truth of the adage Cutting Edge has always taught: there's not one bit of difference between the Democrat and Republican parties. The leaders of both sides of the aisle are equally committed to bringing about the New World Order, and the same evil heart beats within each breast.
There is something about the White House Correspondent's Ball for it has produced some of the most vile "comedy" routines imaginable.
What does the Bible say about the condition of men's hearts at the End of the Age?
"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." (2 Timothy 3:13)
Truly, the awful antics of our top leaders demonstrate the truthfulness of this prophecy and tell us that we are entering the very End of the Age. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
