LAW OF FIRST MENTION: Applying It to Barack Obama

by Dave Daubenmire

Those who study the Bible are aware of a principle called The Law of First Mention. We could have saved America some serious headaches had we simply followed this law.

“The ‘law of first-mention’ is the principle in the interpretation of Scripture which states that the first mention or occurrence of a subject in Scripture establishes an unchangeable pattern, with that subject remaining unchanged in the mind of God throughout Scripture.”

I thought of that principle when I was reflecting on all of the scandals that the Obama administration has been involved in. You can read about the scandals in more depth by visiting this website. I am sure that there are others that you could ad to the list.

What does this have to do with the Biblical Law of First Mention, you ask? Plenty.

You see, despite what you may have heard and joked about, laws are not made to be broken. In fact, most laws, if followed will lead to a peaceful life for everyone involved. God’s laws can be violated but not without consequences. We would do well to follow the instructions He has provided for us.

Just think how much better off we would all be if we had simply applied the Law of First Mention to Barack Hussein Obama. In political terms the Law of First Mention can best described as “vetting.” Vetting is the process whereby one “investigates (someone) thoroughly, especially in order to ensure that they are suitable for a job requiring secrecy, loyalty, or trustworthiness.”

In 2007 whispers began to be heard about Obama’s citizenship and whether or not he was a natural-born citizen of the United States. Those who merely asked the questions were laughed off of the stage. The Alinsky tactic of ridicule was applied to anyone with the curiosity to even ask the question. They were called birthers, and truthers, and conspiracy theorists.

Barack Obama’s real name is Barry Soetoro. There is no denying it. There is zero evidence that he ever “legally” changed his name to Barack Obama. He is using a fake social security number. He has sealed all of the records of his college days. He has never produced any “indisputable evidence” that he was even born in this country.

There is an historical record that Barry Soetoro was raised as a Muslim. It is undeniable that he attended Islamic schools while growing up in Indonesia. His past history would prevent him from receiving security clearance into the White House. With his actions in regards to the Middle East he has shown a great propensity to show favoritism to the Islamic nations.

He is a socialist. I am not afraid to say it and I am not afraid to face the facts. His programs are socialist. His philosophy is socialist. He does not like America. He has no loyalty to anything but himself and his masters. His life’s biography is a mystery and he appears to be a man with no father, no mother, no family, and no country of residence. He is the ultimate “man without a country” except he has been selected to run it.

President Obama is a malevolent liar. The record speaks for itself. The recent expose’ of the architect of ObamaCare calling the voters “dumb” is damning. But, for once, it is truthful. Americans ARE dumb…how else can you explain the mess we are in?

Some have assumed that Obama was merely stupid and that he couldn’t make very good decisions. But what if everything we have been told about him is a lie? What if his life is a reality show?

Who knows the truth about this imposter in the White House? The internet is full of documented evidence. At a time when there have never been as many tools to snoop on Americans are we really to believe that those who are trained to know everything about everybody do not know more about the situation than some guy surfing the net out in the cornfields of Ohio?

Who knows, indeed. That is the scary part. Does George Bush know? How about Laura Bush? My goodness, how about John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, the entire Supreme Court, members of the US Congress, the FBI, the CIA, the Secret service, Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, The Republican Central Committee, the Vatican, Google, Drudge, Donald Trump…

The recent Republican wave is merely an illusion if the powers-that-be do not ask the question that must be asked. How can we expect to return to Constitutional government if the government will not ask the question that the Law of First Mention requires? Will they act like the pharisees of old and ignore the weightier matters of the law while they swallow the camels of executive orders and other illegal activities?

Anything else is a smoke screen. How can anyone scream about the “Constitution” when they won’t peek under the hood?

What would America be like to day if we had simply followed the Law of First Mention and vetted him at the first mention of his name?

So here we are. Four election cycles into this mess and still no one will ask the question. A tiger doesn’t change his stripes. Once a liar, always a liar. Sorry folks. The issue ain’t going away.

Is Barry Soetoro qualified to hold the office he currently occupies? Let’s have Trey Gowdy put him under oath, present the evidence and ask him to answer one simple question.

“Are you Constitutionally qualified to be President of the United States?”

What are we so afraid of? First things first. If he is not eligible all the other issues are moot.

If know one will ask that question then nothing will ever change.
