That explains why he attended Mosques his whole live and why he closed Gitmo and stopped the drone attacks. Oh wait....

Maybe, but the pictures of the translated portion only show a small aprt of the ring. The rest is likely that and I'll bet there aren't many christians wearing one, either way.

Well OK then, have it your way. His spiritual mentor, as he has said himself, is Jeremiah (God D*** America) Wright.

First, please read what I said. I said Obama had an affinity for the Muslims -- I didn't say he was a Muslim.

Now, let's look at reality for a moment. He has supported every Muslim populist uprising against a secular government in that part of the world. In fact, the only populist uprising he didn't support was one against the Islamic regime in Iran.

He wound up not closing Gitmo because -- wait, did you read or see any of the news for that two year span where he kept trying to close Gitmo and hold civilian trials? He didn't close Gitmo because he COULDN'T -- it was a political bomb waiting to go off in his face.

Finally -- so he sends drones after the occasional Islamist target. So what? What's a few hot-headed Muslims versus the impression he's trying to convey that he's actually trying to do something? And perhaps he simply prefers the Muslim regimes already in place. It's not like he's killing Muslims to replace them with "somebody else." Or do you think the governments of Afghanistan and Pakistan really are that friendly toward us?

My view of Obama aligns with what was depicted in "2016." He is a post-colonialist, and will do anything to support anybody that he feels was ever "oppressed" by the United States. And in his view, that encompasses pretty much the rest of the world except western Europe.

The way to keep Muslims from being hunted down and killed by us, is to kill the "leads" that lead to more of them.

The way you kill the leads is by drones, since waterboarding is a hot button.

He probably bought it in Pakistan, when he went there for Spring Break. It's probably made out of old Soviet brass shell casings.

You mean when he completed the last of his training/conversion to becoming a full flegded Mussy? Still would love to know which passport he used to get into Pakistan the US or Indonessian? had to be the Indonessian one cause it was a felony for a US citizen to travel to Pakistan at that time!

I don't give much credibility into WND. I decided to fish around for images of his hands. Oddly enough, there is an unrelated website that looks like some sort of palm reading crap. Point being, they are not some whacko political website. Whacko for entirely a different reason
http://www.handresearch.com/thumbs/h...ama-thumbs.htm

I googled and found a higher resolution image of his left hand
Political Issues

Oddly enough, the ring in this image looks just like the image in the WND article. So I think the images of the ring in the article are accurate.

P.S....that's all I can find. I don't know enough about the alleged symbols to say whether or not the article's assertions are legit.

If there is any truth to this story, Fox will be all over it. Considering the source is basically the equivalent to Huffington Post, I wouldn't put much credibility into it. Looking at their history, they tried to run a similar story a few months ago using the ring as evidence he had another secret marriage before Michelle.

The plot thickens...

Political Issues

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/does...bed-in-arabic/

According to The Blaze:

-An old NYT article mentions that his wedding ring is an ornate one he bought in Indonesia.
-He's worn the ring, on his left ring finger, for 30 years for as long as he's been in college. This, of course, is years before his "Christian" conversion by Jeremiah Wright.
-Other students teased him for wearing it on his left ring finger.
-It appears that he converted his ring into a wedding ring when he married Michelle.

This raises a couple interesting questions:

-Why was he wearing it on his left ring finger while he was still single?
-Why did he convert it into a wedding ring?
-What normal woman would let a man do that?

Or did the Huffington Post just make that part up?
