The President Without A Country

Like Most Conservatives, Pat Boone knew long ago that Obama is not who he says he is. During my youth, Pat Boone sang what became my favorite songs. He was a standard for my group. Now, at a later age, he is still the standard of my group. He has written an eloquent piece challenging President Obama’s allegiance to the people of the United States of America. The people who love Obama will declare this a non-sense Obama hating essay. They will call Boone a racist and besmirch his ≈credibility with bold-faced lies, but Boone will stand up to them and stay firmly convinced in his beliefs. He stands on truth, and truth wins.

I condone this post and approve its message, and recommend everyone in America read it as well.

The President Without A Country

– Pat Boone

“We’re no longer a Christian nation.” – President Barack Obama, June 2009

” America has been arrogant.” – Barack Obama

“After 9/11, America didn’t always live up to her ideals.”- President Barack Obama

“You might say that America is a Muslim nation.”- President Barack Obama, Egypt 2009

Thinking about these and other statements made by the man who wears the title of president,
I keep wondering what country he believes
he’s president of.

In one of my very favorite stories, Edward Everett Hale’s “The Man without a Country,” a young Army lieutenant named Philip Nolan stands condemned for treason during the Revolutionary War, having come under the influence of Aaron Burr.
When the judge asks him if he wishes to say anything before sentence is passed, young Nolan defiantly exclaims, “Damn the United States! I wish I might never hear of the United States again!”

The stunned silence in the courtroom is palpable, pulsing. After a long pause, the judge soberly says to the angry lieutenant: “You have just pronounced your own sentence. You will never hear of the United States again. I sentence you to spend the rest of your life at sea, on one or another of this country’s naval vessels – under strict orders that no one will ever speak to you again about the country you have just cursed.”

And so it was. Philip Nolan was taken away and spent the next 40 years at sea, never hearing anything but an occasional slip of the tongue about America.
The last few pages of the story, recounting Nolan’s dying hours in his small stateroom – now turned into a shrine to the country he foreswore – never fail to bring me to tears. And I find my own love for this dream, this miracle called America, refreshed and renewed. I know how blessed and unique we are.

But reading and hearing the audacious, shocking statements of the man who was elected our president – a young black man living the impossible dream of millions of young Americans, past and present, black and white – I want to ask him, “Just what country do you think you’re president of?”

You surely can’t be referring to the United States of America, can you? America is emphatically a Christian nation, and has been from its inception! Seventy percent of her citizens identify themselves as Christian.
The Declaration of Independence and our Constitution were framed, written and ratified by Christians.
It’s because this was, and is, a nation built on and guided by Judeo-Christian biblical principles that you, sir, have had the inestimable privilege of being elected her president.

You studied law at Harvard, didn’t you, sir? You taught constitutional law in Chicago ? Did you not ever read the statement of John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and an author of the landmark “Federalist Papers”: “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers – and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation – to select and prefer Christians for their rulers”?

In your studies, you surely must have read the decision of the Supreme Court in 1892: “Our lives and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.”

Did your professors have you skip over all the high-court decisions right up till the mid 1900’s that echoed and reinforced these views and intentions? Did you pick up the history of American jurisprudence only in 1947, when for the first time a phrase coined by Thomas Jefferson about a “wall of separation between church and state” was used to deny some specific religious expression – contrary to Jefferson’s intent with that statement?

Or, wait a minute: were your ideas about America ‘s Christianity formed during the 20 years you were a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ under your pastor, Jeremiah Wright? Is that where you got the idea that “America is no longer a Christian nation”? Is this where you, even as you came to call yourself a Christian, formed the belief that “America has been arrogant”?

Even if that’s the understandable explanation of your damning of your country and accusing the whole nation (not just a few military officials trying their best to keep more Americans from being murdered by jihadists) of “not always living up to her ideals,” how did you come up with the ridiculous, alarming notion that we might be “considered a Muslim nation”?

Is it because there are some 2 million or more Muslims living here, trying to be good Americans? Out of a current population of over 300 million, 70 percent of whom are Christians? Does that make us, by any rational definition, a “Muslim nation”?

Why are we not, then, a “Chinese nation”? A “Korean nation”? Even a “Vietnamese nation”? There are even more of these distinct groups in America than Muslims. And if the distinction you’re trying to make is a religious one, why is America not “a Jewish nation”? There’s actually a case to be made for the latter, because our Constitution – and the success of our Revolution and founding – owe a deep debt to our Jewish brothers.

Have you stopped to think what an actual Muslim America would be like? Have you ever really spent much time in Iran? Even in Egypt? You, having been instructed in Islam as a kid at a Muslim school in Indonesia and saying you still love the call to evening prayers, can surely picture our nation founded on the Qur’an, not the Judeo-Christian Bible, and living under Shariah law. Can’t you? You do recall Muhammad’s directives [Surah 9:5,73] to “break the cross” and “kill the infidel”?

It seems increasingly and painfully obvious that you are more influenced by your upbringing and questionable education than most suspected.
If you consider yourself the president of a people who are “no longer Christian,” who have “failed to live up to our ideals,” who “have been arrogant,” and might even be “considered Muslim” – you are president of a country most Americans don’t recognize.

Could it be you are a president without a country?

  2. Pat Boone ,A great singer with dignity. Unfortunately this government has been a deception. Good post

    • Thanks for the comment. See the additional comments by myself and Invisible Mikey for some more insight into this editorial piece.

  3. If only the main stream press would print and show this to the American people, especially the ” SHEEPLE “,it might change the minds of enough to hold the PRESIDENT accountable for his absolute ignorance of our CONSTITUTION. Well said Pat Boone.

  4. Thank you for the Snopes link. It proves succinctly that Obama never said “You might say that America is a Muslim nation.”

    Apparently Pat Boone does not realize that Philip Nolan wasn’t an actual person, just a character in a very successful propaganda piece written to garner sentiment for the Union cause prior to the Civil War. He never lived, never renounced his country, and no one served the sentence aboard ships.

    Art can be a powerful source of persuasion. People confuse stuff they’ve heard in the movies with actual history all the time. It’s a fascinating process that changes culture, and it’s based entirely on made-up stories that humans prefer to believe in place of verifiable fact.

    • Thank you for correcting my take on history. I only heard the phrase “the man without a country” but never read the piece nor knew anything about it. Now I do thanks to you. You are right in that a well written piece can become reality if enough people read it and believe it. The writer of The Man Without A Country certainly did a convincing job and accomplished his goal to pick up the spirits of a country that was tired of fighting the Civil War. I’m sure Pat Boone is trying to do something similar by referencing the story in his essay.

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
