WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Early this morning, President Obama made what could very well prove to be the most controversial move of his presidency with the signing of Executive Order 13738, which revokes the federal government’s official recognition of the Pledge of Allegiance. Under the new order, it is now illegal for any federally funded agency to display the pledge or for any federal employee to recite, or encourage others to recite, the pledge while on duty. This law also applies to federal contractors and other institutions that receive federal funding such as public schools. Individuals who violate this order can face fines of up to $10,000 and up to one year in federal prison.



During the press conference, the President explained his decision was based on a personal belief that the language used in the pledge is “divisive” and “contrary to America’s deepest held values.”

“The pledge excludes so many Americans who are vital to making this country what it is,” Obama said. “Asking someone to pledge their allegiance to our country excludes Jehovah’s Witnesses, Amish, Muslims, and many others whose religious beliefs prohibit strong displays of nationalism. By calling this ‘one nation under God’, we exclude the millions of hard working atheists and agnostics who call America home. By saying ‘liberty and justice for all’, we ignore the grievances of millions of Hispanics, African Americans and Muslims who feel they have neither liberty nor justice.”

Obama told reporters that he believes the inclusion of “under God” runs afoul of the First Amendment’s establishment clause. He summed up his press briefing by challenging congress to create a new pledge that more accurately reflects America’s values.

“I am willing to rescind my decision here today and allow the Pledge of Allegiance back into the schools if we can all agree on the creation of a new Pledge, something that is includes everyone’s beliefs and not just the belief of one nationality or faith.”

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has already offered her support of president Obama’s decree and has vowed to uphold the order if she wins in November’s general election. She echoed his concerns about the pledge’s language and suggested that the pledge’s mention of God sends the wrong message to America’s children.

“I fully support the President and the decision that he has made here today. In January, when I take office as the next President of the United States, unless I see otherwise, I will do my best to uphold this new law and ensure that it stays in effect.”

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump did not mince words when voicing his contempt for the president’s order, referring to the president as an “illegitimate Muslim traitor.”



“As a Christian nation, the Pledge of Allegiance helps our children be the greatest children out there, the best there is, greater than all the other children in this world combined. Obama, who founded ISIS by the way, wants them not to be great, he wants them to be weak, and by banning the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools, he has proven that here today. This is the first step in many in his master plan to force Sharia law onto this great country of ours before he leaves office in January. We all must remember that this is one nation under God and not some guy and his beliefs in whatever he chooses to believe.”

Sarah Bradley, a spokeswoman for Sock It Forward, a group that provides the homeless and those less fortunate with brand new socks, spoke to ABC News about the ban.

“This is a story about President Obama banning the Pledge of Allegiance in our schools.” Bradley said. “I just want to say a big thanks to every God-fearing, Patriotic American that has supported our cause that gives brand new socks to the homeless. Please, donate what you can, every bit helps so much.”

Lawrence Ketchum of the Secular Coalition for America told reporters that Obama’s decision to ban the Pledge is a victory for all those who oppose government control.

“When our children are forced to chant, ‘One nation under God‘, whose God are they referring to exactly?” Ketchum said, “From birth, children are indoctrinated and subjected to mind control, efforts to shape them into the perfect beings that society wants them to be. The Pledge of Allegiance is just one of the many tools used in a child’s involuntary reeducation of basic beliefs and values.” Ketchum continued, “This is a great day not just for Atheists, but for all Americans who value freedom. Forcing children to pledge blind allegiance to this country and profess a belief in a God is extremely dangerous in developing young minds and amounts to little more than government mind control.”

While Executive Order 13738 is likely to be a source of heated debate among Americans, constitutional scholar, Paul Horner, told ABC News that it is unlikely the law will be challenged in court.

“Since this law only affects federal employees and contractors and not the general populace, it is well within the traditional scope of a president’s executive authority to pass this law. Any challenges would lack proper legal standing and more than like be quickly dismissed.”



Fappy The Anti-Masturbation Dolphin, a mascot for a Christian organization that travels around the country educating children about the dangers and consequences of masturbation, told ABC News he believes in what Utah is doing.

“It is important that children become the unique individuals that this country wants them to be. Conforming into the perfect little human beings that God intended them to be has always been the American way. It is important to remember that our Lord and Savior loves each and every one of us, unless we masturbate, then we’ll burn in Hell for eternity.”

David Mikkelson, founder of Snopes.com, a website known for its biased opinions and inaccurate aricles they write about stories on the internet in order to generate advertising revenue, told ABC News that he approves of what a story like this is accomplishing.

“You have to understand that when a story like this goes viral, and we spend a minute or two debunking it, we make lots of money. Stories like this have helped put my children through college, buy a new car, a home and even get the sex reassignment surgery my wife Barbara always wanted since she was a little boy,” Mikkleson said. “We claim ‘to provide evidence for such debunkings and confirmation as well‘, but that’s just ridiculous. Do you know how much time that would take? Instead, we just copy and paste parts of the original article into ours, write a couple sentences, and that’s it. I just want to be clear, our website does zero journalism or anything creative, and I’m only telling you this for legal reasons.” Mikkleson continues, “A typical story of ours makes wild claims, using grammatical errors, misspellings and words like ‘umimumimaginative’, ‘recycled’, ‘hoax’, saying that a story ‘illegally appropriates the trademarks of legitimate news organizations’, but we list no links or sources of information, they are all just outrageous accusations by us. And that story will get 50,000 shares or more on Facebook, that’s a lot of ad revenue for only writing a couple sentences.” Mikkelson further explains, “It is common for us to rewrite a story we’re debunking if we don’t like it. In one recent story of ours, we actually removed a person’s name from the original article and then called him a liar, it’s so funny! We also like to post fake, un-funny, juvenile disclaimers supposedly from the site in question and it is our authors, such as Jeff Zarronandia who are responsible for those gems. We tell our readers that the disclaimer is from the story we are debunking, but a simple google search will show that our disclaimer is 100% fabricated. Sometimes I think that someone should start a company that debunks our debunkings, they could probably make a lot of money,” Mikkelson laughs. “And lots of people complain about our authors attacking websites and their owners for reasons that are 100% proven false, but since we block archive.org it just becomes their word versus ours. Our writers like Zarronandia go as far as to say that the story originated from ‘a clickbait fake news site that infringes the trademark-protected visual elements and domain names of legitimate news outlets in order to generate traffic and drive advertising revenues by creating and spreading entirely false “news” stories‘. But we don’t list ONE factual piece of evidence to back up our claims; It’s just more of our hack, unethical journalism, and as I said before, I only tell you this for legal reasons. I think it is business as usual for us to accuse the story we are debunking of spreading malware and viruses, but we never say what website it actually is. I think warning people about a site that could potentially destroy their computer is probably a good idea, and I hope one day to do that kind of ethical journalism, but people will click our ads regardless, bottom line; so why do the extra work?”

Originally composed by Colonel George Balch in 1887, The Pledge of Allegiance was later revised by Francis Bellamy in 1892 and formally adopted by Congress in 1942. The Pledge is an expression of allegiance to the Flag of the United States and the republic of the United States of America. The official name of the Pledge of Allegiance was adopted in 1945 and the last changes made to it came on Flag Day in 1954 when the words “under God” were added at a nursing school where CNA classes in Ann Arbor, Michigan were taking place.”

The Obama Administration has set up a 24-hour hotline to address any questions and concerns the public may have regarding the new Executive Order. The number for the hotline is (785) 273-0325. Donald Trump plans to speak about the new law this Thursday night (October 20th) at 10PM at The Lost Leaf in Phoenix, Arizona.

  1. The Pledge of Allegiance builds character and helps young children create a bond for their love of this country. Obama should be ashamed of himself!

    • TRUE THAT! There is no convincing me he is not a Muslim terrorist. No president has ever hated America like he does. I’m gonna be sick.

          • Well you are an idiot if you think this is quite all right. Maybe you should move to another country. This is absolutely abhorrable.

          • Quite easily thanks :) who helped you put that sentence together? You did not do it all by your self did you, be honest. That is a big sentence for you to come out with seeing you have such limited intelligence :):)

          • Obama has continued to destroy what many of felt the the pledge was a part of our country’s spirit. It’s hard to believe that the son of a bitch can get away with the detruction of a country that people have died to protect. I noticed the smiling jackals standing around him joyfully screwing over our children’s ability to love their country. There should b a payoff for his traitorous leadership. Anyone who votes for Clinton to continue this corruption should b cursed as well.. Dam politicians they are all suck ass corrupt snakes. Our only way out of this mess to stop it from getting worse is to vote for Mr Trump. He is strong and loves America and speaks in a way we understand. No political crap like Clinton will offer. Vote trump or be disgraced when America falls from GOD’s Grace…

          • Since you seem to have no respect or love for this country, why don’t you just go ahead and move to some 3rd world country which has no toilet for you to crawl out of?

          • See how all the silly Progressives fall into goose step with Der Leader. If you don’t believe that they are right you are stupid or racist or both. Even though they believe they are thinking for themselves they wake up each morning and get their marching orders from the Media morning shows. They will be the first to tell you how enlightened they are because they believe everything that the Party tells them to believe. We know this is true because the Party told them Hillary will make a good President. Even though it has been proven time and again she wouldn’t know the true if she fell in it. If she didn’t know what C stands for in an e-mail she will never figure out what TS stands for. They tell us we are the mindless drones but have you ever seen a Progressive say anything bad about anyone or anything important to their party? If we find someone or something we consider wrong with a Conservative person or group we will be the first to point it out (see Westboro Baptist, George Bush, Todd Akin)

          • Got to admit, the last 8 years has proven to be very difficult getting out from under the covers every morning. Obama’s so called leadership has helped change the country in so many ways that it is easy to get lost.

          • derp – The answer to your question is really quite simple. Unlike you, none of us have our heads stuck in that proverbial spot where the sun doesn’t shine.

          • If you live in America, enjoy what it has to offer and say what I think you said, you don’t belong here. So find another place to call home. Please. There are over a million men and women lying in the ground somewhere in the world who gave up their lives so that our country could remain free and you have nothing better to say than this. Shame on you!

        • What a POS we have for a president! This has to be removed asap. Good thing it’s only a regulation and as soon as we elected a decent president it will be!

          • He is human shit for their is no use for the human turd, most other shit can be beneficial. And that is why one day if we are lucky, we can put our human waste on his gravesite along with pooping on those above in the picture who are smiling and laughing. More people around the world will dance and sing when this piece of human excrement is dead then will mourn.

          • Not if Hillary wins she has said she will enforce Obama’s ruling. It breaks my heart and we should stand together as a nation. Remember what our 16th president said,” A house divided cannot stand. “

        • Terrorist??? hmmm, personally I think he is a Muslim Christian…no such thing you say? There is a faction within the Muslim religion which follows Christ as the major prophet/teacher and the one to follow.
          Christian simply means “a follower of Christ”. You hear him call the Bible “the Bible” yet call the Quran, “the Holy Quran”. He will never quote Apostles Paul or Peter making him a “non-Pauline follower”, or as some would call a “red letter follower” after Christs words being printed in red.

          • Obama is a Muslim terrorist that belongs in Guantanamo Bay! The Quran is a book full of hate from a terrorist cult that is only good for starting fires! I can’t wait for President Trump to take office and resind ALL of those stupid executive orders of that idiots! And to see him brought to justice for high treason! You do know what the penalty for high treason is don’t you?

          • The Jesus of Isam is not the same Jesus of Christianity. The true Jesus is not just a prophet but he is the Son of God and actually God himself. Plus Jesus so loved the world that he suffered the penalty of ousin to forgive us, not kill.

          • A Christian is so much more then a follower of Christ. To be a Christian means to rely on Christ SOLEY as THE savor, to turn from sins (repent) and to follow HIM, not resting on your own merit but ON Christs Grace and only HIS grace. So can a person be a Muslim Christian?….NOPE…Muslims rely on more then Christs grace for sanctification.

          • Christian Muslims believe that Jesus Christ is only son of a living God, not a prophet. They have denouced Mohammed as a false prophet. Obama is certainly not Christian.

          • I assume that you are Christian, because you pointed out the difference between the reverence shown for The Bible and that of The Quran. Let me take this opportunity to point out that while drawing attention to the President’s irreverence for yours and his Bible you also failed to refer to your bible as holy. As a child when my parents tried to sterilize my mind with that brainwashing, it was referred to a The Holy Bible.

          • Surely you jest Dennis. While Obama is clearly a “closet” Muslim he follows no God. Who Barack Obama follows and does the dirty work for is the elite Global Cabal who actually controls the country from behind the scenes. Obama, like Hillary & Bill Clinton, George & HW Bush and Jimmy Carter all dance to the tune being played by the New World Order. They are all traitors to our country.

        • He’s gone WAY to far now!!!!Who does he think he is?????People need to rise up against this corrupt Muslim President.We need Trump!!!!!!!

        • Nindy: You have company; I STAND with you. Hillary is OBummer’s 3rd term. No wonder that community agitator is NOT leaving DC after the election. He is renting a $22,000 per mo home so he can pull Hillary’s puppet strings. Obama must stay close to his BLM group of haters & covet pushers & continue his “transformation”. He is the worst disaster & a “historic” prez all right – EPIC disaster to EVERYONE IN OUR NATION and around the world. Any Black or any Christian who has voted for him did so at their OWN demise. Useful idiots!
          BTW: Where will OBummer’s BFF the Iranian nut job Valerie Jarrett his “advisor” go after the election? Live In the upstairs bedroom of obumm’bers million dollar mansioin

        • HATE! HATE! HATE! The root emotion of anger, revenge, and vengeance. ISIS isn’t the enemy; it is the basic emotion of hate and a mouth with no boundaries. You want peace in the world? Start with yourself. I would rather you use any other synonyms other than HATE!

          • Just because someone has a valid difference of opinion does not make them a hater. So far as ISIS. They are “good” Muslims following in the foot steps of their “prophet”. Do some research as to how Mohammad conducted himself. They are the enemy of everyone who does not meet their standards. People that murder people for their faith, burn women alive for refusing to be raped, sell women in sex slave auctions, attack the US on our soil or attack us ANYWHERE is my enemy.

          • I will carry on with saying the Pledge no matter what happens, if obama or hillary and anyone else does not like it well tough !!! suck it up go on with business because if you dont want to hear it every morning do not stop and listen,…..because it will happen.
            United States American
            James Atkinson,..Paris, Texas

      • Donald Trump is a real man, and he would never do what this dumbass Muslim did, because that Muslim hates this country! Impeach Obama now!!! Donald Trump for President in 2016!!!

          • As if all other politicians are not liars by trade. I am not for Hillary (not very much trustworthy) or Trump but I am not impressed with the latter, not just because his words are full of hate but also because he encourages hateful people to physically manifest their anger towards others. If enough people becomes too blinded with Trumps incoherent and unfounded claims, and he succeeded in becoming the president, be mindful. You will not be griping about the “pledge of allegiance” or other “1st world country” problems but we will face a civil war that will divide this country into those who believe in a “Hitler-like” reign and those who believe in peace and freedom.

            I am still not sure what to do come election time but I am hoping that people would actually listen to the reality of his words that propagates hate rather than unity as a nation. How could you vote for someone who thinks he is the only one that can fix a nation and also profits from it?

            I cannot believe that self proclaimed Christians actually believe him and completely forgets the un-Christian actions he did just so they can say they have voted for a Republican.

            Screw the left and the right. Think properly and rationally. Dont rely on what the media believes or analyzed but hear the actual words that are coming out of each presidential candidate speech. Dig into real and verifiable details.

            Yes, Hilary is a liar. But were is the proof that Trump is not? Where is his tax records? His real financial situation? Complete medical records? What is his actual intent on becoming the most powerful man on earth? Are we sure he would lead us to utopia or our destruction?

            He needs to be able to foster goodwill but also with proper conviction if necessary. But if this is how he will talk to his constituents (like we are morons that cannot do anything to help ourselves) and to the other world leaders (agreeing with Communist leaders and bad mouthing allies), then we are going to find ourselves in a war where our sons and daughters will be fighting inside and outside our country.

        • Disgusted, you couldn’t be as stupid as you sound. Your mommy must have dropped you on your head, or you have taken stupid lessons.

        • disgusted american My Dad taught me not to pay attention to fools and children. I’ll let you tell the folks which you are. Is that the best you can do is call names? You stupid prick. You been listening to too much MSUCKSNBC? Now calling you a prick ain’t the best I can do but they really won’t let me call you what you are you are fool. So shut up, grow up, cause you’re stupidity is making people throw up.

          • Many of you discussing Islam and calling Muslims terrorist and a hateful evil religion obviously have never read anything in it, your only repeating what you’ve heard people say about it. Also you are not True Christians and probably have not read the Bible because it’s says that god is the only judge, and you not only judge your Presidents heart but a religion you know nothing about. And if you disagree with his reasoning your “patriotism” is a little misguided cause you don’t understand their are atheist children who go to school every day and have to recite “one nation, under god” when they do not believe in at god. You can speak how you feel all day but you can not deny the truth and that’s all I speak. Ignorance will submit to intelligence so call me all the names you want but again that will only prove my second point. Give Obama another 4 years before either of the other two even breathe in office for a second.

        • I’m just amazed you can see to type with your head so far up your behind! But then it’s clear that it does explain why you see Obama as a good American instead of the radical Muslim he is !

      • He certainly does inspire nauseous. The. SOB is a treasonous filthy Muslim scumbag.
        Any American stupid enough to vote for Clinton is brain dead.

          • Obama is a disgrace and should have been taken out in his first term. Your brain has quite literally stopped functioning if you haven’t noticed the destruction and damage he has done to our nation. How can you even defend a TRAITOR playing the role of president?! I was in the Corps and would gladly have placed my life on the line for our real presidents! Not for this POS Muslim terrorist impersonating a president!!

      • Agree! He only became President to destroy the US and so far he’s done a great job of it. If Killary becomes President she will finish the job for him!

      • Muslim terrorist. Is that the reason why we are trying to make peace with other nations? Or the reason why we are not in recession? Or that we are not sending thousands of our own children to another war? Or the reason why he is trying his best to ensure we are not spending our hard earned money to war efforts?

        Did you all forget history when Christians killed men and women that did not agree with their beliefs? Stop thinking that each religion is sanctimonious than the other. Dont single out a religion because this one is hot off the press. Blame terrorists as they are, vagabonds that kills the innocent and to instill fear, not because they are of a different race or religion but because they are using our ignorance to destroy us from the inside.

      • Sunny, we all have known that Barack Obama is the poster boy of the New World Order Cabal who is close to bringing down the country. This is just another spoke in the wheel of their strategy to remove values that America is founded on. Don’t be sick…….instead, get all your friends out to vote for Donald Trump, who if elected will wipe out all of Obama’s Executive Orders. May God bless America and the men and women who protect her.

    • How sad, what a travesty of our history and its foundation, throughout the history of this great nation, the pledge of allegiance reflected love of Country and “God” what Obama is doing here, is bringing great dishonor to our Nation, he has removed God from all four corners o our Nation.

      • that man is the scum of the earth he did this for his freaking brother moslems, he also wanted to leave out God. he is without a doubt a moslem loving pos and i am ashamed that anyone in their right mind put this person in charge of our country. he has done nothing but put us in debt 19 tril dollars, divided the races and done everything to brown America with all his illegals and moslems. he makes me sick and so does clinton cause she is just as sick in the head as he is

        • Put us in debt? Have you heard of the recession? Are we in one right now? Do you have a job? Wow…i cant believe that you all have forgotten what it is like before he came into office. Why? Because he is black? Or because he has a different religion than you? He is definitely not perfect or right on every decision he made but do you think any president past or even future ones will be? This is what is real. Hate is being fueled by more hate. Blaming others, making rude comments, calling names, threatening others will not solve YOUR problem. Start with yourself. Ask yourself if by spreading, fostering, or tolerating hate among us Americans will actually unite us as a nation.

          • The people that speak of God obviously don’t know that there are many different Gods,, Your God may not be the same as other people’s God,, Or lack-there-of.
            This is (most likely) the main reason for this change..

      • Hate to tell you this but the Pledge wasn’t written until 1890’s and “under god” was added in the 1950’s…so not so much through our great history… Maybe recent history. There is still plenty of God to go around…

        • He didn’t have to ban the allegiance to the flag and our country. He could have removed the section of under God. He has no love of this country. He’s as phony as they come. There is no more allegiance to our flag. There is no more Liberty. No more Justice. No more allegiance to the United States of America. He has banned it. This isn’t just about God. This is about country.

          • I agree. leave off G-d of have it spoken as: “one nation, under whatever G-D you choose to believe in” ETC. our country is going back to the dark ages quickly. I tried calling the # but busy busy, busy..I WILL SAY THE PLEDGE ADDING WHATEVER G-D I WANT TO SAY, SHE PREFERRABLY, WHENEVER I SEE A FLAG AND ESPECIALLY AROUND SCHOOLS NOW. I don’t know what he was signing when that photo was taken, but all around him are smiles, so OBVIOUSLY NOT THIS..does HE THINK HE IS G-D AND WE SHOULD HONOR HIM?? NEVER~~he totally disgust me. I always thought a woman would be a great Pres but I REALLY have 2nd, 3rd, 4th thoughts on it since she is standing behind him like a little puppet.

    • You should not call people names. It is the media who are telling lies, if it is not true. You are the gullible one if you believe Obama is for the American people.

    • it appears that Obama thinks he’s smarter than our founding fathers and more powerful than any president in our history.. where is congress when you need them, it’s not clear how he can execute an executive order that changes history and or has a fine and prison time associated with it.. that sounds more like making a law, which is the congress’ job not his..

      • We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
        And it goes on here: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transcript.html

        • The Declaration of Independence is one of the most radical documents ever ! It was written at a time when the proper ruler of a nation was widely considered to be a king chosen by God, and parts of it are still ignored by most governments worldwide.

        • Obama is butchering America in preparation for the NWO.

          I’m voting Trump because he is anti NWO and a Nationalist.

        • NOT SURE EXACTLY DATE THAT THE PLEDGE WAS CONSIDERED ANTI IMMIGRANT AND DISRESPECTFUL OF ALL RELIGIONS, AGNOSTICS AND ATHIEST. SINCE UNDER GOD WAS ADOPTED AND ADDED IN 1954, PETITION THE GOVERNMENT TO RULE TO REMOVE IT SO THAT IT REFLECTS ALL AS AMERICAN CITIZENS. DO WHAT WAS DONE WHEN WE AND OUR KIDS WENT TO SCHOOL. IF PARENTS DISPUTED THEIR CHILD SAYING THE PLEDGE OR STANDING FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, THEY SAT IN THEIR DESK WITH THEIR HEADS DOWN. THERE PROBLEM SOLVED.

          • You must have skipped your history classes, slept through it or never finished high school. Do you even know what you are talking about? Explain to me what the “fundamental make up of our country” means. Hate and bigotry, the KKK and white supremacy aren’t part of it. Go back and read the Counstitution of the U.S. (that is if you can read and comprehend) and that should give you an idea of what the U.S. is all about.

      • If you think the Pledge was written by the founding fathers, you are wrong. It was written in September of 1892 by Francis Bellamy and did not include the phrase “one nation under God” until much later on in 1954 when President Eisenhower (a Republican) decided to include it. It was not even written as something to be recited in school or any other public place. So before you spout off, learn your history. The President is right – the Pledge leaves out a whole bunch of people who are Americans and have contributed to this country. Maybe the Pledge of Allegiance should be returned back to its original form.

        • You’re right about part of what you said. It was written by a socialist named Francis Bellamy. However, you’re wrong about its intent. Bellamy distributed it to schools, where it was meant to indoctrinate children into nationalism.

          Of other note is that it was distributed with instructions for a particular salute that was to be performed during the recitation of the pledge. That salute would be seen again, and become infamous, just a few decades later. For more information, look up “Bellamy Salute.”

        • Are you that stupid or do you just choose to ignore the real problem. It is not about the pledge of allegiance. It is about a man who was elected by the people Who lied to them and now shows who he really is. Do you think he would have gotten elected if he professed to me Non Christian? If he said he was going to outlaw our pledge of allegiance because it had the word GOD in it. I propose that every Christian in the United States protest this executive order. I propose that we immediately start impeachment proceedings.

        • William, may I point out the the article states it was written in 1887 and revised in 1892, but that’s not the point. It’s not the content of the Pledge or when it was written or who wrote it or who may or may not be included, or what God it is referring to whatever else we can come up with. It’s the way these things are being shoved down our throats. The double standard as delivered by Ms sock lady. It’s the constant attack from this wanna be dictator POS POTUS to make this country like every other crap hole in the world. If you don’t think so just look at all the major cities in this country that are run on his principles and the progressive ideology. Talk about indoctrination! From my standpoint, the people that are the most well rounded, that contribute to the betterment of all Americans, that are the most tolerant of other religions and races are the ones that believe in God and Country. The same people that raise their children to understand right from wrong and to grow up to understand that by being a value to society, we are also a value to ourselves and that’s how we reap our reward. The same ones that believe in the Pledge of Allegiance for what it stands for. Simply put, these things are not his to give or take away.

          JUST SAY NO TO FEDERAL MONEY

          • Your statement, Harry, is one of the best on here. I wholly agree that the Pledge of Allegiance should be allowed anywhere any time in any building or location. That’s called Freedom of Speech. I was always proud to stand and pledge our flag each morning when I was in school. If the word God is offensive to anyone then people should realize that we hear so much trash and foul language in our society (even from our own families in some cases) and when we say something about respect the person looks at us as if we are not competent or sick in the head. I have been near tears at times, but there is not any law that takes care of those who subject me to such pain. It’s so sad that we, the people, who try to live our lives within the law with respect and love to others, have to be treated the way this President has treated our fellow Americans. This country was founded for Religious Freedom and now we are loosing that more and more each day. How can anyone vote for Clinton when she will only be a third term for Obama. This is tragic.

        • your an idiot william. obviously you do not see his bigger plan or do not care ! All who read this join your local militia ASAP. Sgt Kim Paulsen Iowa Militia

      • The article stated the Pledge of Allegiance originated in 1887. I believe our founding fathers were no longer around at that time. I think it’s one of the best things he’s done. But, that’s just my opinion.

      • The Founding Fathers didn’t create the Pledge of Allegiance. “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all” is the original version written in 1892 by a socialist minister, Francis Bellamy to be used by anybody – not necessarily Americans. “To THE flag” was added in 1923. “Under God” was added in 1953. It’s hardly an important document.

      • The Pledge of Allegiance is NOT about this being One Nation Under God, but pledging to be true to the United States of America. The pledge is not to God but to the Flag of the United States of America. If a U.S. Federal employee is no permitted to pledge his/her allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, then which country are they going to pledge their allegiance to? Does anyone know the definition of TREASON?

        • Exactly! People are so stuck on the phrase that includes God that they forget the rest of the pledge. Children of the future will not know the pledge unless the parents teach it to them. Obama has followed through with his promise to ‘fundamentally change America’.

      • Founding fathers? They didn’t put the pledge in place. It was written in 1892 and the words “Under God” were not put in until 1954 because of the “Communist threat”. I would have been happy removing the under god part again.

      • But that would mean Congress would have to spend much more time fund raising and enjoying lobbyist provided junkets!!! Besides, this whole article was satirical!!!

      • More Sad and Disheartening is the group of elected traitors to the foundation of American Culture and Education. Why is Paul Ryan running the charge to stop this low life heretic. Did any of you know or realize the smile on his face is because he and michelle the SilverBack have been working with John Legend( as Produce)to write, consult and contribute to their life story due in theaters by Sept. something about Life in the Southside. think it is refering to Chicago. Hail barium, Go to Hell Barium and all of your Cabinet and Family. I am a 7th generation American Citizen of Portuguese, Irish, European decent. My grandparents raised their kids to be educated, proud American English speaking Citizens who flew and fought for Flag also pledging allegence to Our Country. ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS NATURALIZED OR NOT, SHOULD BE UNITING TO STOP THIS DISPLAY OF DISRESPECT FOR AMERICAN BY obama and the DNC…..

      • Not sure what the “founding fathers” would have thought of any pledge, as the first was written after the civil war and adjusted subsequently by Congress for reasons known only to them. Be brave, if you want to say the pledge, just go ahead and do it. No one can put all of you in jail. If you want to say “under god” go for it. Who is going to stop you?

        • When I was in the first grade in Phoenix I was very small and shy and afraid to do anything wrong. My teacher noticed that I didn’t start saying the pledge with the others. That was because I was on the front row and was trying to peek to see which hand to put over my heart. She ordered me to say it by my self, and I began to cry so she locked me in the cloak room for the entire day. No lunch or potty breaks. I waited till I could no longer hear talking and snuck out and walked home alone. I didn’t have the words to tell my parents what happened and I accepted the punishment for getting home late and walking alone.

      • i think obama is wrong he is not a president we want he is wrong and i do nor want him or hillary ot continuem his policies

    • I totally agree Lilly…… let’s exile that Muslim to the country he supports when he is DONE here…and take away his income for the life.

    • I’m just beside myself that this piece of crap president is doing everything in his power to destroy this nation. This makes me sick. What a horrible, horrible thing to do.

    • Obummer wants a good solid…..what a dope. His abilities were faked from the beginning. The DNC and the CFR screwed the pooch and now they have to pay for their Obama treason.

    • There are a lot of stupid and gullible people in this country. Read most of these racist comments, and then realize that President Obama did not sign any such order. Idiots, one and all!

      • (shhh!..they’re so busy being Trump’s sheeples and listening to him vomit his racist, misogynistic, fear-inducing rhetoric to realize this is a spoof website and not the real ABC News!)

    • I agree, he SHOULD be ashamed of himself. The last 8 years seem to have destroyed this great country. And Hillary wants to back EVERYTHING the president believes/does. So, the Pledge of Allegiance says *one nation under God,* that God could be whomever each person decides to *worship.* This is just my opinion though.

    • The pledge helps build character in kids and I’ve said it when I was a kid in school obama is an idiot he has no respect for America he has screwed up this country for 8yrs glad he is not going to be president next yr he should be ashamed of himself he has no respect for this country or himself!!!!!!

      • You still can pledge your allegiance to the flag and the country. Just not when you are at your government job or in public schools. What don’t you have your kids pledge it every morning to your personal front yard flag? I’m sure you have one as patriotic as you are. You do know that Hitler Youth and Young Pioneers in Communist and Socialist countries also had to pledge allegiance? I can think of plenty other ways to build character.

    • “Since this law only affects federal employees and contractors and not the general populace, it is well within the traditional scope of a president’s executive authority to pass this law.”

      If you want to require your children to recite the Pledge every hour of every day, you still can.

    • This POS has zero American Value. He is taking away our heritage every single day, dam communist, and he is also a muslim, which has been hidden information by the liberal press for 8 years. Saw the release of never before scene picture of Obama, serveral of them he is in Muslim garb. If the had been shown when he was running, he would have never been elected.

    • Can’t figure out how to leave a comment without doing a reply, so I am not responding to you Lilly. My take is ” if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.” Global wrming, the drought and floods are a priority, why energy into this. I also get concerned for people calling Obama or anyone pigs etc. Actually it is a compliment to be a pig, they are very smart animals. Wish we all had more love in our hearts even if we disagree.

    • 100% agree, anyone going to America should be happy to pledge allegiance while there or they should not be there. Obama was Americas biggest mistake, Ever!!

    • YA JUST LOOK AT THOSE FRICKIN SMILING ASS WIPES.. JUST STAND AROUND THIS TRAITOR AND WATCHING HIM DESTROY OUR COUNTRY .. THERE ALL TRAITORS I TELL YOU IF I WAS THERE I WOULD SLAP THE SHIT RIGHT OUT OF THAT BOY AND THEN TAKE HIM DOWN TO TATTOO SHOP AND HAVE THEM TATTOO THE PLEDGE ON HIS CHEST AND HIS ASS.. AND START STRINGING THEM UP LIKE POPCORN FOR THE XMAS TREE …. ITS A SAD DAY IN HISTORY TO THE GREAT USA LILLY THANKS FOR LETTING ME PIGGY BACK ON YOUR COMMENT .. AND OH YA FEED HIM A POUND OF BACON AND BOB EVANS SAUSAGE A LITTLE PIG FOR THE PIG DOWN WITH OBUMMER POHLCAT

    • So we have to be tolerant and respectful of other people’s beliefs, customs and culture but they do not have to tolerate and accept any of ours. What is wrong with this picture.

    • Is this a joke? Stop it from public schools? Well, I’ll just buy small flags for my three grandchildren and they can recite the pledge and then catch the bus.

    • I agree ! I don’t care what religion everyone is or what color their skin is either but every faith in the world has what they call a God so this makes no sense to me whatsoever. I am so scared for this country of our’s I am tempted to just pack up my kids and family and just move to another !

    • Now tell us which God, among the many optional, this is supposed to pledge to? Obama will catch a lot of flak from those who believe their God is the one and only, but that’s not quite correct.
      Check the tally of the variety of what humanity worships.
      A brave and bold move by our President.

      • The Declaration of Independence make that crystal clear “By their Creator” which is
        an unspecific reference to a supreme being so, it cannot be assumed it is the Judeo-Christian Creator Yahweh even though it was Protestant Europe that came here to escape “Organized Religion dictating to government”. In short, “The Divine right of Kings”. The first Amendment wasn’t about the government or Congress establishing religion, it was about “Recognizing Religious establishments”. At the time of the writing of the Constitution and Declaration, the phrases “Recognizing an Establishment of Religion” and “Recognizing a religious establishment” were the same. In both cases, the word “establishment” has ALWAYS ment “organization”, which we now relagate as a secondary definition with the synonym “Make or formulate” as the primary. The first amendment never ment “Congress will make no law to formulate nor make nor choose a state religion, nor may it forbid citizens to practice their personal beliefs”. What it does mean (and always has) is: “Congress shall make no law recognizing any religious organization as having authority over the United States government, and Congress will not prohibit the populace to practice the faith of such organizations”. In short, The Pope’s approval of our choices of our leaders carries no weight and he has no role in our inagurations.
        Yet, that does not forbid a citizen to be Catholic. Our government while it can listen to religious opinion, it’s not obligated to take that organizations stance. Yet, at the same time, the government is not forbidden to refer to the Creator in a generic way. “One Nation under GOD” does not violat the First Amendment nor does “In GOD We Trust”. Our first Supreme Court Chief Justice John Jay said ““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.” Judeo-Christianity can lead our government, but it must be from the ballot box. George Washington was of the opinion: “It is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.” In the 4th verse of the National Anthem, Key writes “Blessed with victory and peace, may this Heaven rescued land, praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must for our cause it is just; let this be our motto “In GOD is our trust”, Then the Star Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave ore the land of the free, and the home of the brave”. That is the only time in the poem that the enternal flying of our flag ended in a statement, not a question.

    • OBAMA SHOULD BE PUT IN PRISON FOR TREASON. I CAN’T WAIT FOR DONALD TO BECOME PRESIDENT AND CLEAN UP ALL THE SHIT THAT OBAMA AND HIS PEOPLE HAVE DONE TO SCREW UP OUR AMERICA!

    • What young children do you speak of. We raised our son with love, and left it up to him whether he chose the Pledge, or prayer. He is smart, caring, graduated with honors from high school, college, was President of a Fraternity which raised millions of pounds of food for “Feed America” and is a now an employed writer. We voted for President Obama twice, and would do so again. You, Lilly, Sunny, Nindy, Fanny, Sue, and all of you holier than thou friends making snide remarks are the ones who should be ashamed.

    • America needs it citizen to love their country, not worship it. It way past this be changed as it has now, we are a melting pot, we have all contributed and those contributions came from people of many faiths and , even the faith in no deity, or organized Religion, all sacrifices are sacrifices, none more than others, especially based on one’s faith being better than another sacrifice for Country.

      American all deserve to honored, not a religious symbol, it was the sacrifice given, not the flag, it is human sacrifice by many different people, some not even American.

      Our Country was created with a BIRTH DEFECT, created by OLD WHITE SLAVE HOLDING MEN, for OLD WHITE SLAVE HOLDING MEN, that is fact and our value to this Nation was validated under Flags, including the 13 Starts, we black people are etched in the Constitution as 3/5th human and it was white men who enshrined Black Africans and Black Hebrew Slave, as not EQUAL and Not Human beings, not any deity/god/religion, or Flag, or oath and allegiance who were enslaved.

      It wasn’t the FLAGS, the enslaved us, it was human being, white human beings and I do not have the reverence, whites have for these symbols of White is superior and white Religions, as superior to my Right’s as a FREE Citizen, stop forcing your reverenced IDOL worship on me.

      You do not have that right over me and my life, my heart, or any faith gives you that right, under some symbol and allegiance.

    • President Barack Hussein Obutthole is a God Damn TRAITOR. He needs to leave the U.S. and go to Syria to be with his fellow ISIS buttfkers

    • I don’t believe what is happening to our country and the people who are backing this up. Just remember, he has children who will be growing up in this environment. We grew up with these principles and they are what made America Great. Hopefully, when Trump becomes President he will change all this and bring America back to us. Amen!

    • “The pledge excludes so many Americans who are vital to making this country what it is,” Obama said. “Asking someone to pledge their allegiance to our country excludes Jehovah’s Witnesses, Amish, Muslims, and many others whose religious beliefs prohibit strong displays of nationalism. By calling this ‘one nation under God’, we exclude the millions of hard working atheists and agnostics who call America home. By saying ‘liberty and justice for all’, we ignore the grievances of millions of Hispanics, African Americans and Muslims who feel they have neither liberty nor justice.”

      It only excludes those you choose to exclude with it. The Pledge is ALL INCLUSIVE as it was always meant to be. The sooner this PC clown is out of office the better. “Under God? Whos God? Everyone’s God. Even if that God is Science. One Nation is WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE. One Flag. The US Flag, and the Liberty and Justice for All is WHAT THAT FLAG PROMISES. If the US is lacking in that department, its our leadership that is unable to deliver, and NOT the Flag. Asking someone to Pledge Allegiance to this country is a promise to DEFEND IT. WE ARE ARMED. WE WILL DEFEND IT. People that refuse the pledge are the ones to watch. for they owe no allegiance here, and likely are here to do it harm. If you refuse to defend the life, country and liberty that flag represents then you deserve NONE of it…

    • This sounds like our lame duck president. My response would be to encourage every school and every teacher to have their students recite the pledge every day and clog up the courts with hundreds of thousands cases. Civil disobedience against this over reach will scuttle it before it starts.

    • But the Wall Street Mafia puppet insists that the Constitution and Bill of Rights degrading laws of the Patriot Act, NDAA and the TPP are somehow good for our country. That war for profit scum bag belongs in prison and not in the Peoples’ White House.

    • What builds character and helps young children for their love of this country is GOOD EDUCATION, working parents who earn descent money and teach the children what is integrity and honesty.
      Pledge of Allegiance has as much to do with building of child’s character like praying to cure cancer.
      Grow up!

    • All those morons standing around him grinning like he has done some great, marvelous thing! In fact, he just committed a treasonous act and should be arrested. I can’t for the life of me understand why he is getting away with so much. Guess we’ll have to wait until Trump gets elected and in one fell swoop, rescind every executive order he has ever signed. If he can use an executive order to do things he wants without going through the American people, Trump can use them to undo everything the same way.

    • Obama is nuts for what he did are kids have a right to sing it in schools so what happens now when one of are soldiers die in this stupid war there will be no flown at half mass that is bullshit Obama is the worst president we ever had

    • Obama is nuts for what he did are kids have a right to sing it in schools so what happens now when one of are soldiers die in this stupid war there will be no flag flown at half mass that is bullshit Obama is the worst president we ever had

    • he should be charged with treason.This is so stupid if these groups dont like the flag and pledge leave this country this includes you obama

    • You think it’s right to force children who don’t even fully understand this country (or the screwed up things it has done) to pledge an allegiance to it? What if the United States becomes an even worse violator of human rights? Then do these kids have to either support an evil country or break their pledge?

      • I PLEDGE ALLEGENCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS ONE NATION UNDER GOD IN DIVISIBLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL and I will keep pledging to this flag for all of those men and women who have sacrificed their lives so that we could live freely if you don’t like this than pack your shit and hit the road that means you too Mr President Obama you have gone way too far this time you have disgraced our country long enough it’s time for you to step down

    • That is justified stupidity, it only in YOUR IMAGINATION that ‘a pledge’ builds character…..smh Millennials, coming of age, will tell US that they are informed enough to know that the bullshit we’ve bought into up and plateaued our thinking with. Realize you haven’t even begun to use your brain!

    • You are all such racists and so ignorant. He wants the GOD reference pulled from the pledge for people like me. I’m an atheist. He did it for the majority of America. All of you who think Obama is a Muslim need to move to Mexico. Your ignorance disgusts me.

    • The plan is to slowly destroy US sovereignty to make way for a world government. Patriots are being called “extremists”…the border is not being secured…the Constitution is slowly being trampled…it’s all to help make us accept worldwide gov’t which is also called the New World Order. The Pledge of Allegiance is scrapped because it represents sovereignty of our country.

    • It is not solely school children that are the issue here!! The Pledge of Allegiance is used when Citizenship is obtained by immigrants! U.S. Soldiers take the pledge when they officially become members of the military! To pledge your allegiance to the flag of the United States of America is a formal verbal promise that as a citizen of this nation you vow to protect and defend this country from all enemies both foreign and domestic! The Pledge is so much more than a minute long morning ritual of school children!! Obama makes me sick!! It has been 129 years since the original Balch writing of this pledge, 124 years since the Bellemy revision, 74 years since being adopted by congress, and 62 years since “UNDER GOD” was added. the thing that has become “divisive” and “contrary to America’s deepest held values.” is Obama’s presidency!!
      His claim that “Asking someone to pledge their allegiance to our country excludes Jehovah’s Witnesses, Amish, Muslims, and many others whose religious beliefs prohibit strong displays of nationalism.” 1st of all reciting a minute long pledge is not something I would consider as a “strong display of nationalism”. And 2nd, refusal to make a pledge to this country only solidifies the fact that if one does not pledge their allegiance to this country there is no way of knowing where their allegiances are.
      He says, “The pledge excludes so many Americans who are vital to making this country what it is,” Well, if these people are true Americans they should have no problem pledging their allegiance as such. Then comes the absolute insult…
      He claims “By saying ‘liberty and justice for all’, we ignore the grievances of millions of Hispanics, African Americans, and Muslims who feel they have neither liberty nor justice.” This comment is a contradiction of its own! If these aggrieved citizens were truly deprived of liberty and justice, rather than being permitted to spit and/or burn the flag, ignore reverence during the National Antem, march in protest, etc. they would be taken outside in public and executed for failing to pledge their allegiance to the country they claim citizenship to!!
      Any true American Patriot should be appalled at this heinous action of this heinous so called president!!

    • UNFORTUNATELY,

    • More total BS from the muslim in chief! His so called legacy will be one of shame and traitorous acts against America! This is just disgraceful and a slap in the face to all patriotic Americans.

  2. It was only a matter of time before this goddamn nigger muslim of ours goes ahead and does something only him and his Islamic friends would approve of. Makes me so damn mad!!!!

  3. This type of mind control needed to be eliminated in our public schools for a long time now and finally someone had the courage to do it. Bravo Mr. President!

    • Apparently Obama has run out of anything remotely approaching an original thought, so he’s chosen to issue an executive order banning the Pledge of Allegiance in U.S. schools. I hate to say it (for the umpteenth time), but it’s time we impeach Obama right now!!!

    • The mind control is the group think of the Left. The public schools are a function of state govt. & the local school districts with their locally elected school boards. The Prez. can go pound sand on this.

    • I agree with the premise of this move, but I wish the discussion of a new Pledge would have come first. And the timing is terrible…just another weapon to be used against Hillary and American muslims.

      • If you think about this CLEARLY, it’s understandable, some people don’t believe in God, at all..The atheists…Jehovahs Witness, Say, Jehovah, not God.. not sure about jewish people, And the Muslims say Allah…How would YOU like to send your child to a school that said, One nation, under ALLAH! You would throw a fit..The children that are raised to know a different GOD, or none at all, are confused! RIGHT? And you people keep forgetting, not all Muslims are TERRORISTS. Trump has taught you that they are…Let me tell you something, SHAQ, is Muslim, Kareen,A.J. is Muslim..Dr. Oz, #1 heart surgeon in N.Y. is Muslim, Ali, was Muslim, Snoop Dogg is Muslim, Ice Cube, is Muslim, Janet Jackson is Muslim, Amal Clooney (Georges wife) is Muslim, Dave Chappelle is Muslim, Casey Kasem was Muslim…and on and on…and many in our military, policemen, and, NOT TERRORISTS…There is a difference between, MUSLIM TERRORISTS, AND GOOD PEOPLE THAT THEIR RELIGION IS MUSLIM! Just like, not all Catholics are pedophiles, just because a bunch of priest have been found to be so!!

        • You really don’t see what you are saying here do you? You are saying that there are people that don’t believe in God therefore we should exclude God from everything. Well what about those who do? we should swap our beliefs for the unbelievers? That’s Satan talking.

          • You sound like a smoker who is pissed that his favorite bar chose to ban smokers. You are the one that chose to be christian, not me. So why should I have to ‘pray’ during the national anthem. I love my country, but my america is not ‘one nation under god’, although I have had to live under the thumb of christians my entire life. You believe in god, good for you, go pray in church. Prayer and knowledge have no business being included in the same sentence let alone a school or a court house. You have a place to pray, go there. Why do you people feel the need to prove how wonderful you are to everyone? Does praying in public help you feel like a better person? I don’t need a book to make me a good person, I have a brain for that. You should respect the non-believers and not force them to pray. It’s not satan talking because he’s not real. We don’t believe the same as you and it’s going to be fine! We don’t need to be saved! Pay attention to your own life and leave us alone. Prayer belongs in church and at home and this president has the brains and influence to finally push you christians down off this pedestal you’ve been perched on for so long. BYEEEEEEEE.

        • So what is your fucking point, Zoe? Because a bunch of people chose to become Muslims, everyone else should have to throw over two hundred years of faith and tradition and values down the drain? You libtards or so stupid and selfish…..all about me, me, me.

        • You are very misguided: People worship many “gods”, but the “god” of Islam, “Allah” is not the “Jehovah” of Christianity. Look at the message of each in the writings of their prophets and see the difference….or not: just wallow in your own ignorance.

        • So what?? so just because all these celebrities are Muslim, then we should omit the Pledge of Allegiance and omit UNDER GOD just so we dont offend them? A majority of Americans are CHRISTIANS, this Nation was built on Christianity therefor, majority RULES! Period!! We cant keep pleasing the minority, it just doesnt work that way! If we make a pot of vegestable beef soup but leave out carrots because Susie doesnt like carrots, then we leave out the celery because Billy doesnt like celery, and leave out onions because Sally doesnt like onions, and leave out the beef because Tommy hates beef, etc… what left? Nothing!!! Just what America will become if we keep trying to please everyone! Obamas Promise of a Fundamental Transformation of America is almost complete.. He opened the borders to create a mixed pot of crap so that when we try to please every nationality, every religion etc… we end up with absolutely NOTHING…

    • You know I first was a joke when people said he was a muslim. Now it just seems clear there is no other explanation. He needs to be jailed for treason. I’m not even christian but he is trying to destroy the fabric of this nation.

  4. Those who he says are left out CHOOSE to be left out of the pledge of allegiance… They are free to join in IF they wish to do so…or not to join in IF THEY WISH NOT TO….Obama is the worse thing that has happened to this country. I offer my consent for Obama and his clan to move where ever they wish to live EXCEPT under our AMERICAN FLAG! He is evil man and so is his W-I-F-E, Mooshelle!

  5. Don’t excuse, no more hesitation, indecition, no more stammer, now it’s to determining to deciding to save life innocents people killers by terrorists commander Muslim Koran sharia Islam franchises, USA people now is in war against enemy Muslim Koran sharia Islam terrorist franchises.

    The better plan and way against terrorist Obama III it’s remove him and speaker Paul Ryan both are the headquarters impunity of terrorist Muslim Koran Islam franchises killers in massacres innocent people, and obligatory to enforce to must First and Second Amendment Of USA Constitution that protect freedom religion and belief, nombre pantomims invasion Muslim Koran sharia Islam franchises terrorist no more impunity massacre innocent persons killers by attacks leader Muslim Koran sharia Islam terrorist Trojan mosques training to planned attacks in USA territory and world. Muslim Koran sharia Islam is not an religion or rasa, is an humans crime and iniquidad.

    Stop reelection dangerous dictator Muslim Obama III and Bill Clinton III to use camuoflage Hillary Clinton felony and perjury.

    If the commander in chief, military USA, is the Muslim Obama II, in case there are no more military USA, now the Muslim sharia Obama II impostor, reached to be the commander in chief, military Muslim sharia Islam, with code of arms nuclear on his fingers, is really a big dangerous problem for national security and defense of the country, because, now the commander in chief, Muslim Obama is against Pueblo USA, and the nation, Muslim Obama is fighting as Muslim against USA and the people is so decrees or executive order comes violating compulsively USA Constitution to destroy the American Union and the US republic.

    If the CIA director, reached to be Muslim, and the CIA is the side Muslim Islam sharia fighting USA republic, the current CIA director is violating the US constitution, is a dangerous enemy USA people.

    Alert, Urgent Remove to current dictator Muslim Obama III condemned to enforce First and Second Amendment of the US Constitution, which protects freedom of religion and belief, this constitutional act is required to win the war on Muslim koran terrorist sharia Islam franchises Trojan mosques that they are operating as training to attack US and World territory, who were founded by traitorous Bill Clinton administration that allowed the planning of the attack Muslim 9/11/2001 and now continues under this dangerous administration, treacherous dictator, Muslim Obama II . But now that the people USA is now in full knowing the big problem having been put into national debate by denouncing the USA leadership Donald J Trump, who since the announcement compete as a Republican presidential candidate, now nominated by votes of patriotic Republicans and not appointed by fraud rigged system, who denounced the collusion of Muslim in USA with current dictator Muslim Obama III, who put into practice his plan to withdraw military troops from Iraqi occupation. everything is openly clear and it is time to remove the head of conspiracy Muslim dictator Obama III to safeguard national security.

  6. Well, that’s what you get with an unqualified Radical Community Organizer who is #AntiAmerican.

    However, Obama does NOT make LAW….so THIS STUNT is NOT enforceable. So the loser is ineffective and an embarrassing LOSER.

    • “Since this law only affects federal employees and contractors and not the general populace, it is well within the traditional scope of a president’s executive authority to pass this law. Any challenges would lack proper legal standing and more than like be quickly dismissed.”

      • Since it effects EVERY individual citizen, then IT IS arguable and CAN BE STRUCK DOWN.

        There goes another idiot writing about what he doesnt want to acknkwledge! This article was written by a leftist POS who wants us to think we cant fight this!!!! He wants us to feel hopeless and throw our hands up and feel defeated. HOWEVER….an Executive Order is not a law, it is a policy, and as such, means nothing.
        For example, it is rare but some companies have a policy where their employees can take a 1 hour lunch. Others dont. This isnt a LAW……its a policy that applies to one company and not others. Executive Orders are the same principal. They are NOT laws and CAN BE CHALLENGED!!!

      • It’s not a law, it’s an order. It also cannot affect Public schools, they’re not federal, they’re state.

      • Not true, it also affects any schools, hospitals, clinics, military or anything that gets federal aid, and that my friend is a long, long list. The entities that do NOT get federal funding of some sort are much, much smaller.

  7. Well played. Quit telling them. I would love to see the looks on their faces as they are spitting and waving their hands, telling their friends what Obama did, and then finding out they were pawned. Hopefully they read past the 1st paragraph, where the reasons against pledges are given. But then hopefully they stop there, because the Fappy part is a dead give away.

    • What I am even more shocked at is that I don’t see anyone in the comments that are upset about how “Fappy The Anti-Masturbation Dolphin” agree’s with Utah.

      Who in their right mind would ever agree with Utah. Poor Fappy. I know for sure he didn’t say that. I hope he sues for libel.

  8. Damn those who inserted the “under God” clause into the pledge. Those fu<k!n commie paranoid driven idgets were warned back in 1954 when they did this that inserting this divisive clause would in all likelihood result in eventual problems, which has now prophetically happened. Here's the history of the Pledge:

    In its original form it read:

    "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    In 1923, the words, "the Flag of the United States of America" were added. At this time it read:

    "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    In 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words "under God," creating the 31-word pledge we say today. Bellamy's daughter (the originator of the pledge) objected to this alteration. Today it reads:

    "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

    Why didn't Obama simply order the pledge be reverted back to the 1923 version? Because for all his progressivism, he's still as much a coward toward the theocratic minions as the theocratic minions are to themselves, so he takes the cheap, easy arse wipe way out and simply bans it, and uses a pathetic and untrue straw man argument of racism and bigotry as his justification for doing so. And so the march towards dismantling patriotism marches on, the kind of patriotism that builds character, not the gun toting muscle flexing beer bellied kind of patriots, but the kind that built and defended this nation, the kind that "The Greatest Generation" became.

    • Carl, Thank you for posting all of that. I did not know the evolution of the Pledge. I do think the POTUS signed an extreme action like this. There could have been a simpler solution.

    • Thank you, thank you Carl. Few know the tortured history of the “Pledge” and having it laid out so crisply. . .Wonderful. (I thought the original story was from the “Onion”)
      Just as wonderful is your skewering of Obama. And here I thought only the Republican Presidential nominee was capable of taking a jack-hammer to his own foot !
      Can’t you just see Trump’s tweets to his “2nd Amendment Folks; I dunno.”

      Cheer up. It’s only August. This circus is just getting started.

    • It’s not mind control. It’s pledging your belief that you stand behind your nation. Would you want our soldiers defending a different belief as they choose to put their lives on the line? JFK said it best. ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY. This PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE has that very same mindset. People so concerned about what this country can do for them are the very ones who have sucked it dry and sent it down the dismal hole it’s headed down. SHARIA LAW is next.

  9. Unfortunately the people who agree with this have been through our educational system and have been dumbed down and social engineered to understand that the Government is the mommy and daddy and need to tell them how to live. This tyrannical signing of executive documents and making laws like he is Hitler or Stalin has gotten out of hand. I agree with the Declaration of Independence regarding abolishing our current government and start a new one with the three branches. Begin all over and govern ourselves the way it is supposed to be.

  10. This is ridiculous! This is the United States and we should be able to pledge allegiance to our flag! If there are people here that do not wish to say the pledge then they can choose not to speak the words or place their hand over their heart. Don’t ban those of us that do love and support this country from our rights!

    • Agreed. As a Christian I know that we are all given free will. While Christian followers keep pushing to share the “good news”, we don’t shove it down on people. Unfortunately our community of folks from all different walks of life have mostly become PC and argued to have rules and laws put into place. Simply said, that was just wrong. It’s much easier to just turn and walk away, if you don’t like something, like our pledge, then don’t participate. But don’t strip the right of freedom of choice from those who gave their lives, so that you could live freely just as the rest of us do, here in the USA.

      • Demes!!!, unplugged voters, dummies for LYING hillary!, yeah, YOU ALL!:THAT’S WHO I’M TALKING TO.
        “IF YOU DON’T LOVE IT LEAVE IT. BUT LEAVE MY AMERICA ALONE, MY GRANDCHILDREN AND GREATGRANDS, DESERVE to live in the land of the free with justice for all who want it, who wants it like it is, like we have it.
        If you don’t like it GO, and you sleazy, president, ( hate to call him president), Hussain Obama, your Fired!!! On ur way out. Like Donald said today,
        ” I will! tell u the truth”.
        Love my America like it is or Go!
        Your a sad indivually an nothing will please you.

  11. I don’t know what to say. This pledge has served our free and wonderful country for decades. To make it illegal to say it now makes no sense. Why should we adjust so many things to appease Muslims and atheists? They do not have to recite it but should stand at attention while those of us who honor it recite it. Let’s pay attention to what we are being forced to give up or change because some may be offended.

  12. This guy states: “Since this law only affects federal employees and contractors and not the general populace,” — My question is who the heck does this retard think goes to public school if not the ‘general populace’??????? libtardation at it’s finest…

    • It says that any contractor or agency that receives funding from the National Government (There has not been a Federal Government since the 17th Amendment was ratified), that includes State/Commonwealth Governments, County/Parish Governments, Local Municipalities and Public Schools, which receive funding from Washington, DC.

  13. Wow, the only pro-Pledge Christian comment you can find to post is some ridiculous comment from Fappy the Anti-Masturbation Dolphin? Biased much, ABC? Credibility gone.

  14. Wrong author on the Pledge- Francis Bellamy, 1892. The original version only pledged to the flag and the Republic and did not mention God at all.

  15. A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero

  16. Obama’s mission is to create dissension among Americans to cause us to oppose each other while Obama and H. Clinton are destroying our nation. We could argue with each other but then we are doing what the establishment wants us to do. Pay attention to Obama’s and H. Clinton’s anti-American
    moves and go to the polls to remove them immediately. Your/our votes are the strongest action we can take to keep America strong. There is nothing we can do about Obama’s back-stabbing antics at this time. If we do not stop them now, the constitution will be next and you can take that to the bank or better yet the voting booth.

    • I hate to say this but i don’t believe going to the polls and voting will help any because the sick liberals that believe in Obama and the destruction of America out number us. I’am beginning to believe that our votes don’t count for any thing any more. Just think if the Government today thought our votes counted they wouldn’t let us vote.

    • I hate to say it but I don’t think it will do much good to go to the polls and vote because the sick liberals that believe in Obama and Hillary out number us. Just think if our government today thought that our votes counted they wouldn’t let us vote.

  17. Traitorous piece of trash!! Working to turn the children into anti-American lost souls. They don’t know any better. I’ll be SO glad when he’s gone!!

  18. Make sure you thank a judge and lawyers of the BAR for their stand up performance for the enforcement of just laws that keeps us free. We the people thank you for your oppressive courts set in a fictitious economy, set up in a no win situation for the enslavement of the people to keep them in submission and in poverty. We also want to thank you for your deception and manipulation with your brothers of those masonic temples we call churches which has turned our angels of justice into the hounds of hell that has plagued man since it’s inception. We would also like to thank this group for the destruction of the good,right,just and lawful republic of the people that is written in those just laws they so conveniently ignore to bring about what we left behind lawless, merciless rules of man alone such as Cesar and Ramses.For it is the fall of man throughout history. When good principals of governess are destroyed all we are left with is bad,wrong,corrupt and lawless like we have today.

  19. While I agree with the removal of “under God,”. I also agree to ban such an item and make it a crime to recite is also against the first amendment, nor prohibit the free expression thereof, and to say people are offended by “with liberty and justice for all,” reams hopelessness. Hopelessness would not have gotten black people or women or poor the right to vote. They need to learn to make it happen. This is a country of early immigrants who made it work, not people wining or complaining to someone to fix everything.

  20. THAT is just about the most awful, destruction, and American beating movement. Good Lord how much worse will this get before he exits the office. u g h. God Bless America please!!!!

  21. The man is already going out as a complete failure. Obamacare, ISIS, economy, Iran deal, etc., etc. He’s determined to spend his last remaining months putting the icing on the cake. If only the corruption of his administration could be proven and his ass get put in jail. Barry is a Islamist sympathizer. He despises the United States. If you doubt that you really need to do some research.

  22. If you noticed every time the pledge has been changed it had to have the ok of Congress! How many more laws is Obama going change before he leaves office, if he does?? Do our supposed leaders in Washington really want to see our country fall, don’t they understand that if we fall they fall also!

  23. This is as anti-American as one can get. Kids can’t say the pledge in classroom and have to share bathrooms and lock rooms with opposite sex…. May God have mercy on this country for electing such a traitor as President!

  24. Every time the pledge has been changed Congress had to approve it. How many more laws is he going to try to change before he leaves office, if he does! Do our leaders really think that when we lose our country they will go down also? And Hillary will make Bill our head of the UN not Obama, so he can try taking over the world!

  25. I cannot believe this is happening. What has just happened to our country? The people of this world is going to pay for what has just happened. Floods, wars, fires, climate, etc. Obama has just made hell on earth. How can anybody want this to happen to our world.

  26. If King Obama feels so strongly about this why didn’t he do it in his first term? One positive from this is that it could stir enough anger from the silent majority to help keep the ‘wicked with of the left’ out of the White House.

  27. He can’t do that without Congress giving it’s ok! How many more laws is he going to try changing before he leaves, if he does leave? Doesn’t our leaders know that when we go down they go down too?!

  28. If King Obama feels so strongly about this then why didn’t he do it in his first term? Oh well, at least it may stir up enough of the silent majority to keep the ‘wicked witch of the left’ out of the White House.

  29. That POS Kenyan-born usurper should be hung or shot by firing squad already. What the f*ck is congress doing besides getting rich off our taxes & illegal trading? This shit has gone far enough. He’s crossed the line so many times he could have been impeached a 1000 times. We need to vote out every one of those yellow-belly, spineless worms & start over

  30. He is the single most Unamerican President we have ever had. You media organisations have eaten right out of his hands and fed him everything he’s wanted. We the people want the real news. We want the truth. You have shit us out on the truth. You have shit our candidate out on this election, and we are all sick of it. Our forefathers would be rolling in their graves. This nation is turning to crap, while you lap dogs in washing and paper pushers “yes sir three bags full” Obama.

  31. Why don’t they all just go somewhere else and start their own country and leave ours alone!! God help us and please destroy the people who want to destroy this country-YOU ARE AN ALL POWERFUL GOD AND WE ARE RELYING ON YOU-THANK YOU IN THE HOLY NAME OF JESUS-AMEN!!

  32. Obama is a worthless and weak no good rotten yellow belly pathetic dirty frikin rat who needs to be expelled along with his pathetic talking points buddy’s , The dumborats to the moon Alice.

  33. Executive orders are NOT LAW! The president was not granted authority to write his own laws! Only Congress has the power to write law!
    This EO is easily enough shot down!!!

  34. Keith… don’t think Donald meant that for all blacks. Though harsh as it was to read…I think it was only meant for Obama. You must agree Obama has really messed thus country up and now Clinton will continue if elected….

  35. This is OUTRAGEOUS! I am SHOCKED by this ridiculous abuse of power! WHO the HELL gave this TRAITOR the RIGHT to BAN the Pledge of Allegiance? He has gone TOO FAR with this one. This is UN-AMERICAN and just plain WRONG! The use of the word “God” is something he opposes? I suppose he would, considering the idiot will not call RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS : RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS. He is a TRAITOR! He needs to be IMPEACHED. He has WAAAYYYY overstepped his authority by doing this traitorous ACT! Who the hell does he think he is? He alone has decided that it is offensive to pledge our loyalty to this GREAT NATION? Who gives a shit if ILLEGAL ALIENS and their kids don’t feel comfy with saying the Pledge of Allegiance in schools that they are illegally sitting in while they illegally collect money that I have worked my ass of to pay for, while their illegal fathers illegally work in this country and send all of their money back to Mexico. I sure as hell don’t. Obama needs to be IMPEACHED NOW! While you’re at it you might as well prosecute that Crooked witch too-I’m sick of the corruption, the unAmerican BS and the lies. No MORE! IMPEACH THAT MORON!

  36. Disgusting! Obama is bent on ruining our great nation before he leaves office…sad… Hopefully when Trump kicks Crooked Hillary’s ass and becomes president, we will make America Great Again!!!.

  37. That stupid SOB. I am so sick of him destroying our country. It is OUR Pledge. Anyone who doesn’t believe in it can keep their damn mouth shut or leave OUR country. And don’t slam the door on your way out.

  38. It takes Congress to ok it. How many more laws is he going to try to bring upon us before he leaves office, if he does? Don’t these fools in Washington know that when we go down they go down too!

  39. Wow! This man is out of control! Our founding fathers are puking in their graves! The man is doing everything he can to erode the love of country and the respect of God from our nation’s principles and values, before his term is up! The end of Ovomit cannot come soon enough!!! 😡😡😡

  40. What a freakin Muslim turd. In his almost 8 years in office he has destroyed the fabric of this once great country. Racism is growing exponentially and hatred abounds. Worst president in the history of this country.

  41. HE – – – OBAMA, , , SO SOooooo NEEDS TO GO! Never thought I’d see this in my lifetime. What is wrong with this country, where we will put up with this kind of president???

    • Sadly Lauren, Many many many Americans have been screaming at the top of their lungs to impeach this President from the very beginning of his 1st term, and it all for the last 8yrs. has fallen on deaf ears. He’s a fraud, the dems knew he was a fraud and this is the evil they cast on America, for their agenda is to make us a communist 3rd world country. Just look at Clinton’s agenda, she’s gonna erase our 2nd, and make it illegal to buy guns. She’s going to rewrite Obamacare to her likeing, she supports third trimester abortions, which any abortion should be considered as murder, but she likes murder, she’s good at murder. When she told her family and the egypt prime minister it was a planned attack, who planned it? Did Clinton plan it, she denied him no protection for months, troops and the red cross were evauated, and when Christopher Stevens asked to be evacuated, he was denied. So who really planned his assasination? Just recently 2 members of the Clintons administration were found murdered this month of Aug. 2016, for they had info of the evil to come if she were elected and they were dropped in their tracks. They wanted to discredit her and warn America. We all need to be on our toes this coming election, for the dems have been caught twice frauding our election machines. We need to pass a law that only Americans with ID can vote, those who dont have photo ID will be dismissed from voting. We know Obama got caught handing out visa’s and driver licenses behind our backs, just as he does at 3am in the morning. And again, sadly enough, their are communists in both parties who will support a communist America. And thats what we’re up against ppl., and America WILL push back, and sadly again, it may lead to a civil war on America’s soil. They say its up to us, well we dont know how to fight this, nobody is telling us how to fight the invasion of refugee radical Islam jihadists. Cuz their here, no doubt in my mind, and mark my words, Obama will be giving the word of attack in his final days if they dont impeach on the grounds of the highest treason!! God, Please Bless America, thru Jesus’s name, Amen.

  42. This is so disgusting!! Obama needs to be IMPEACHED!! I don’t give a damn about the Jehovah Witness, Amish, Quaker, Mennonite, or the damn Muslims. If this people don’t want to honor our American Flag then these people should be kicked out of this country. The Democrats just lost my vote!

  43. I never took school very seriously i wasn’t happy there for various reasons one thing i did take seriously was the pledge each morning, I’ve always been proud of my country if not all the people in it i will never understand how a man who hates this country and all it stands for became its president

  44. Obumer & Killary can kiss my rose red, white & blue a$$!!! My grandfather, father, brother, uncles, cousins & ex-husband served in our military to preserve our country’s freedoms & I WILL SAY THE PLEDGE WHEREVER I DAMN WELL PLEASE!!!!

  45. It is rather comical to see how this entire story is written and presented to us by this outlet, not only are they creating a narrative the makes it seem like a good thing to side with the presidents order but also seem like the only people that would be opposed are these idiots from the flappy group. The truth of it all is that our president is purposely ignoring the constitution as it is written and making false statements to gain approval (I.E. Freedom of speech, religion) and all you suckers agreeing with him are just so happy to support the idiocy. There is nothing in the pledge of allegiance that excludes anyone unless they choose (which everyone has the right) to exclude themselves. All this moron is doing is stepping all over not only your rights but the rights of every government employee by “legally” removing their right to freedom of speech, that of which those very people have sworn to protect and that includes Mr. President himself. It is laughable that a “constitutional lawyer” would actually say that nobody would have grounds to fight this order when the US Constitution and our 27 amendments are grounds enough.

  46. What the jerk just did was TAKE AWAY the right to say the Pledge. I wish he would hurry up and go away, and his little bitch Hillary too.

  47. EVERY country, now apparently EXCEPT this one, has an oath of allegiance sworn by its constituents. One must expect the oath of allegiance in muslim/Islamic countries is necessarily more confining, and istitutes harsher punishments for violations.

    • I have live in two countries, Scotland and Canada neither of which required it’s citizens to pledge allegiance. Pledge allegiance immediatly makes me think of Hitler and goosestepping The fact that you spend so many seconds clutching your heart and speaking some words does not make you a better citizen nor is it reasonable that children will find it useful as a support. They need parents.

  48. – odumbshit CANNOT make LAWS – ONLY our Elected CONGRESS can make laws – – ” it ” has completely flipped ” it’s ” wig NOW — !!!!!!!- – – Go Home to Indonesia ” illegal Alien ” – – – – !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. I totally believe in the pledge of allegiance as a tool for instilling patriotism in our country. As a public school teacher for 32 years, I respected the rights of every child in my class due to their religion. Even though the pledge was recited every day, students were only required to stand silently during that time. I cannot believe that the president even has the right to create laws. I think it should be time for Congress to step up and do their job.

    This is outrageous.

  50. im athiest and have no problem saying the pledge, and knowing our country was started by christians and catholics and i reside here even though i dont have the same beliefs i respect that they still allow me to be free somewhat. i am wholeheartedly a patriot of my country and could care less about one word and yall praising him sound like sheep
    .

  51. Daniel 11:37
    It fits his description.
    …36″Then the king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will speak monstrous things against the God of gods; and he will prosper until the indignation is finished, for that which is decreed will be done. 37″He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. 38″But instead he will honor a god of fortresses, a god whom his fathers did not know; he will honor him with gold, silver, costly stones and treasures.…

  52. This is the greatest Act of Sedition and Treason against the United States by Barrack Hussein Obama! He needs to be brought up on Articles of Impeachment for Sedition and Treason, and then tried and EXECUTED, upon conviction!

  53. Ricardo Lara behind him. What a surprise two homosexuals and God haters pulling down the country.
    God will be your judge.

  54. Anyone who gets federal money or funds I guess that he means welfare and social security money too I will say the pledge anytime I want too, and since he doesn’t like out God, I will say to just piss him off God Bless your damn soul traitor.

  55. The morality curve has been on a sharp decline in this country beginning in the ’60s. This in conjunction with a decline in patrotism is all the effect of liberal and “progressive” policies that have all but destroyed this once great nation. I’m almost 66 so I won’t have to deal with this bs much longer. I’ll be in a a better place but I have a real fear of the kind of nation my grandchildren will have to grow up in.

  56. Article 2 Section 3 lists the duties of the president. “the president must take care that laws are faithfully executed.” If the president modifies laws through executive orders or selectively enforces provisions of laws through executive orders the president is violating this clause
    Article 6 Section 2, which is the supremacy clause, defines what the law of the land is. Executive orders are not listed in the supremacy clause therefore they are not the law of the land. Only laws that do not violate the Constitution are the law of the land. Because executive orders are issued by the executive department outside of the formal legislative process and their contents most often violate provisions of the Constitution they are not the law of the land

  57. Calling Obama the scum of the earth is too good a name for him. Everything he’s done as president has brought disgrace to American because that’s been his plan. Actually, he’s brought disgrace to mankind. If by any chance HC gets elected that’ll show just how much this country has declined during his presidency. It’ll be far worst once her first term is over.

  58. Call that number for his administration hotline thats at the bottom of the article and bug the shit out of them!! 785 273 0325 I called!!

  59. to the westboro babtist church if u don’t like living in this country then leave and take Obama with you it will be a cold day in hell when I will obey this pos of a president who should be impeached immediately. he has no right and those jackasses who are smiling well you can take them including joe biden with you get the hell ouf of my country and don’t come back

  60. Hhhhmmmmm…..I can’t decide who’s more repugnant: Obama, Hilllary or Bill Clinton. Oh wait a minute; I forgot to include Satan in the mix..

  61. If any of you are not registered to vote then get off your butts and get registered.
    We need every vote we can muster to make sure Hillary Clinton does not get in office.
    Trump already said he will wipe out all Obama’s executive orders!!!

    Many states have Early Voting or Absentee voting. Use one or the other to make sure your vote is not played around with. If there is no paper copy of your vote make sure it is registered right. This is really important if you live in a bigger city.

    We fight for the very life of American so get out there and let all the crap going on be known.
    http://www.vapersunited.us/elections.htm

  62. The sooner this asswipe of a White House resident leaves, the sooner a new White House resident can replace the dignity in this country and reinstitute law and justice to rid this country of those who do not want to be Americans and live in this country as a citizen and pay taxes to live here. I could go on, but I’ve said enough now to get a fire going. Have a nice day !

  63. We were warned before he was elected president. Read his books.
    What else would you expect from a Half Breed KENYAN born in another country.
    SSDD.

  64. It doesn’t surprise me that the deranged POTUS comes up with outlandish orders. What does surprise me is that American people lets him get by with it. He should have been impeached 7 yrs ago. He will go down in history as the worst president of America. These 7 yrs have been a total embarrassment and the media has been more corrupt than ever. God help us.

  65. One of the basic precepts in the Constitution and the formation of our Nation was freedom of religion. That means ALL religious beliefs… including NO BELIEF IN GOD AT ALL if that happens to be your belief. I’m happy for all the bible thumping zealots who find such solace in the misguided belief that our nation was founded as a “Christian Nation”. IT WAS NOT. Don’t take my word for it, do something novel for yourself like doing a little research into the origin of our Nation and the ideas, beliefs, and principles so dearly held by those who crafted the Constitution and founded our Nation. Most of the founding fathers were Diests…. not Christians. Smarten up and find out what the difference is instead of railing against someone who as a matter of fact… is more in line with the thinking of our founding fathers. You people who are so quick to condemn Obama for doing this are the exact product of the type of brainwashing that the pledge is capable of producing. It’s also so rich to see people here railing against Obama as being divisive while in the same breath condemning mooslims (sic) and uttering the N word liberally. The real scum are the hateful people who are so demonstrably ignorant as evidenced by the hate and vitriol they post here. You should all be grateful for Obama who is looking to insure that we preserve and defend the American vision as it was intended by the founding fathers. I am in spite of the fact that it protects your right to spout and post such virulent hateful and divisive points of view. As much as I hate what it is that many of you stand for and I detest the ignorant way in which you arrive at your viewpoint, I would as a patriotic American be willing to lay down my life for your right to do so. That’s what it means to be a patriotic American…. not reciting some rote pledge which pidgeon holes all Americans so as to have belief in a God that may not be the God of their understanding.

  66. Of course a communistic, piece of sh*t, anti-American /pro- muslim, anti-police is going to do everything he can to tear apart America. He and his cloneys have done their best to tear down in 8 years what it took 200+ years to build. AND TO THINK HILLARY CLINTON SAID SHE IS GOING TO CONTINUE WHERE HO-BAMA LEAVES OFF. I feel sorry for what America has turned into

  67. They want America to be a godless society!!!
    Muslims believe in God but not Jesus, so what if they pledge themselves to this country they came here for a better life to prosper and be safe. what guarantees have you if they create a civil war within America.

  68. I am more then sick of this trash that some call president. He can go to hell. This is America. Our military have fought for that flag and the pledge means more to the American people than that man will ever know. He is scum of the earth. This just shows we need a REAL American as our President. Go Trump 2016

  69. When are people going to realise that whatever comes out of the mouth of obama is actually the mouth of israel. this mess that the world is in is all the work of israel, they own the US, i think you need to take it back but first you have to realise that israel and israel alone is your one true enemy.

  70. HOW is he doing this w/NO ONE stopping him? I thought exec orders were only for emergencies?!? He is SUCH a traitor to our country! Has anyone called the number in the article? I WILL be calling! This man has gone far enough!! Doesn’t he have better things to do than to sit around & dissect OUR country’s long- held pledge of allegiance? I guess he’ll institute one that institutes pledging allegiance to “Allah” instead! Look out, it’s coming! I’ll NEVER say it though!

  71. What on earth does masturbation have to do with the pledge ABC News???? Did you even proof this article before you published it?? Wow…lol

  72. Obama is like an old recycled shoe, he’s all nonsense, and it’s true….the people that voted for him are a bunch of foolish sheep

  73. IF the “President” wanted to divide our Country , this is certainly one way to do so. I have studied the Pledge. No where in the wording do I find anything to offend Americans. First, WE are Americans; American Africans , American Italians , American Poles , American Hungarians , American Swedes , American WHATEVER !! The Pledge helps build pride , in our Country , in ourselves , in our families. Somehow a religion that demands the faithful adore their deity 5 or more times a day seems somewhat excessive. By all means , let these people do so. Some of their laws should be outlawed! They can follow their laws only so far as OUR system allows ;i.e. , killing a family member for the honor of the father. Ridiculous!!! This is the21st Century. Catch up. Since they don’t like our laws and customs….I heartily “suggest” they go back to where they came from!

  74. This is ridiculous! Wake up America! Obama doesn’t love our country. He despises it and all that we stand for. Dinesh D’Souza predicted this in “2016: Obama’s America” & his predictions for the corrupt Hillary in “Hillary’s America” will be true as well if we don’t fight against her corruption.

  75. When are the people going to have enough??!!! If Hillary is elected, she will continue this!!! You watch…it won’t be long until all kids are required to kneel with the Muslims! It will only get worse from here! Hillary has told everyone that she plans to carry on the great (gag me) work Obama has started! WAKE UP, AMERICA!!! We r being sold out!

  76. WHAT A HEARTBREAKING IN TIME HISTORY WE ARE EXPERIENCING AS A CHRISTIANS I KNOW THAT WILL HEAL AND OTHER CHRISTIANS WILL AS WELL THROUGH THE GRACE OF GOD, ABOUT THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE IT IS ALL ABOUT PATRIOTISM IN OUR COUNTRY. I THINK IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO FLY EACH CHLD’S FLAG OF THEIR COUNTRY ON CERTAIN DAY, I FEEL LIKE THAT WOULD BE SPECIAL FOR THE KIDS.
    TO CLOSE I HAVE A QUOTE FROM ABRAHAM LINCOLN “AMERICA WILL NEVWE BE DESTROYED FROM THE OUTSIDE. IF WE FALTER AND LOSE OUR FREEDOM, IT WILL BE BECAUSE WE DESTROYED OURSELVES”

    • I totally agree! All this bad talk will only make things worse. God is still in control and we will get what we deserve. Believe me God is the Judge just read the old Testament. We aren’t going to like it. God created so God can destroy. No President can do that. Maybe praying for him would be more help!

  77. Obama’s Executive Orders Are NOT LAW. Only Congress can Make Laws.
    His Executive orders are only enforceable on Federal Agencies or Federal Govt.
    Schools are LOCAL State and City Government, and His edicts are Non Enforceable on them. Can he withhold Federal funding to the Schools? Yes. but Force a Showdown with Him, and the Outcry will be Great Against him, that he and his will back down!!!
    Now since alot of schools are Liberal Dominated, they will follow his orders like law, though they have NO such Authority, and They too can be Challenged!!!

  78. You, Mr President, or should I say, “HAIL CESAR”, are a TRAITOR to our GREAT NATION and our Constitution! If you don’t like OUR (We The People, who still believe in our Great Nation) Pledge of Allegiance, GO YOUR OWN WAY! Do not ram your radical islamic ( and I did not capitalize the I on purpose) idealism down the Peoples throats. Everyone has choice, and for those of you who do not wish to believe in God, or the Freedoms of our country, that is OK, however, MAKE NO MISTAKE, YOU WILL ( the people who don’t believe) Will have to answer to God one day, and HIS WORD WILL BE FINAL!

  79. THE SIGNING OF THE EXECUTIVE ORDER OBAMA HAS SIGNED WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS, I DO NOT STAND ALONE. THE AMERICAN FLAG WILL NEVER BE FOR FORGOTTEN.
    DONALD J. TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.A. 2016

  80. Ninth Amendment to the United States Constitution

    The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

    This amendment is used to protect the citizenry from any expansion of governmental power because of the limited nature of the Bill of Rights. Because every right of the people of the United States could not possibly be mentioned in the Constitution, the Ninth Amendment was added to supplement those already mentioned. The amendment protects many rights implied in a universal civil code, and those that are linked to other rights already declared. It protects these personal liberties from state and federal infringement.

  81. I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

    I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

  82. Ok that’s a last straw !!!!! Where is the military and our representatives in congress and the senate ??? Time for ACTION !!!!immediately impeach him !!!!!
    He’ll never swore his oath or swore with his hand on his heart., he is not and should NOT be paid or afforded the expresidential bodyguards or pay let this arrogant rat starve or better yet force him to a Sharia law country !!!!

  83. Obama, you Communist, Muslim Bastard…you are pitiful. You may be the president of the muslim world or the UN…but you are not The President of The United States…

  84. First of all, this is a policy move which means it’s legislative, and, ONCE AGAIN, Obama is ignoring the Separation of Powers in our Constitution.

    Secondly, the whole purpose behind our Pledge of Allegiance is to UNITE our country under God. It clearly expresses the fact that we were a God-fearing nation. This principle is the reason we were strong and all but invincible.

    The old saying comes to mind — “united we stand, divided we FALL.” Obama & Hillary prefer another old saying — “DIVIDE and conquer.” This is where we are headed under the PC verbiage of these TRAITORS considering Hillary said she would uphold this decision if elected!

    Trump has it right when he said he would vet immigrants by making sure they will SUPPORT & UPHOLD OUR US CONSTITUTION & our system of laws. When immigrants come here and do not assimilate, we will be even more divided than ever which is exactly what the traitors want for our country!

  85. Just when you think that racist piece of trash Obama, can’t do anything else to hurt this country, he does this. Worst leader, Worst president, Worst Human being of all time.

  86. Obama is so worried about excluding someone. Well if he changes the Pledge of Allegiance then he is excluding me and I would bet millions of others who want to pledge our allegiance to our flag and our country “UNDER GOD”! But then he is not worried about excluding or insulting Christians.

  87. A small point of fact claiming that Obama is against god and is a Muslim, just remember Muslims, Jews and Christians all worship the same Abrahamic god. Also Stuff the pledge, hated it as a student, glad it’s gone.

  88. The pledge of allegiance would have been ok if kids were facing the ISIS flag and the part of one nation under God was changed to one nation under allah. What an abortion of a president, and people think killary is going to be better? Wake TF up America. You might hate Trump but he wouldn’t do this shit.

  89. This is a disgrace to those who
    Died for the freedom we have and to all who have served/This explains why
    There were no flags at DNC-The
    People who agree with this have
    Sold out our country!!!
    Any republican who doesn’t
    Support Trump need rethink
    Their position and remember
    What will happen to the
    Supreme Court if Hillary is elected-
    Next comes the 2nd amendment
    Removal, Sharia Law,& good
    Lord only knows. You republican
    Senators & Reps need to buck
    Up and stand for people, not
    Foreigners !!!

  90. Obama will stop at nothing to remove everything that makes America what it is and will do everything he can to get as many people on public assistance so that they are easier to control. Wake up people…nothing is free. There is always a price to be paid.

  91. An Interesting piece of forgotten U.S. History

    We just don’t learn … An Interesting piece of forgotten U.S. History

    When Jefferson saw there was no negotiating with Muslims, he formed what is the now the Marines (sea going soldiers). These Marines were attached to U. S. Merchant vessels. When the Muslims attacked U.S. merchant vessels, they were repulsed by armed soldiers, but there is more.

    The Marines followed the Muslims back to their villages and killed every man, woman, and child in the village. It didn’t take long for the Muslims to leave U.S. Merchant vessels alone. English and French merchant vessels started running up our flag when entering the Mediterranean to secure safe travel.

    Why the Marine Hymn Contains the Verse “… to the shores of Tripoli.” This is very interesting and a must read piece of our history. It points out where we may be heading. Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago, the United States had declared war on Islam and Thomas Jefferson led the charge!

    At the height of the 18th century, Muslim pirates (the “Barbary Pirates”) were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic. They attacked every ship in sight and held the crews for exorbitant ransoms. Those taken hostage were subjected to barbaric treatment and wrote heart-breaking letters home, begging their government and family members to pay whatever their Mohammedan captors demanded.

    These extortionists of the high seas represented the North African Islamic nations of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers – collectively referred to as the Barbary Coast – and presented a dangerous and unprovoked threat to the new American Republic ..

    Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under the protection of Great Britain. When the U.S. declared its independence and entered into war, the ships of the United States were protected by France. However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.

    Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy. Beginning in 1784, 17 years before he would become president, Thomas Jefferson became America’s Minister to France. That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid bribes to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.

    In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American ships, and the Dye of Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of $60,000. It was a plain and simple case of extortion, and Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any further payments. Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied nations who together could force the Islamic states into peace. A disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom.

    In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain to ask by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

    The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not acknowledge their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

    Despite this stunning admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim nations, as well as the objections of many notable American leaders, including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and would only further embolden the enemy, for the following fifteen years the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over 20 percent of the United States government annual revenues in 1800.

    Jefferson was disgusted. Shortly after his being sworn in as the third President of the United States in 1801, the Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus $25,000 a year for every year forthcoming. That changed everything.

    Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with his demand. The Pasha responded by cutting down the flagpole at the American consulate and declared war on the United States. Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers immediately followed suit. Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for anything beyond coastal defense, but, having watched his nation be cowed by Islamic thuggery for long enough, decided that it was finally time to meet force with force.

    He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never forget. Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to seize all vessels and goods of the Pasha of Tripoli and to “cause to be done all other acts of precaution or hostility as the state of war would justify”.

    When Algiers and Tunis, who were both accustomed to American cowardice and acquiescence, saw the newly independent United States had both the will and the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to Tripoli. The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years and raged up again in 1815. The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line”…to the shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever be known as “leathernecks” for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding enemy ships.

    Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified doing in the name of their prophet and their god, disturbed Jefferson quite deeply. America had a tradition of religious tolerance. In fact Jefferson, himself, had co-authored the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, but fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen. A religion based on supremacy, whose holy book not only condoned but mandated violence against unbelievers, was unacceptable to him. His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose an even greater threat to the United States .

    This should concern every American. That Muslims have brought about women-only classes and swimming times at taxpayer-funded universities and public pools; that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged; Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces because they offend Islamist sensibilities; ice cream has been discontinued at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks similar to the Arabic script for Allah; public schools are pulling pork from their menus. But in turn several American companies have placed the Muslim symbol on their products in the name of Allah; on and on and on and on..

    It’s death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across America. By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our own culture, the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct knife, and helping to further the Islamists agenda. Sadly, it appears that today America ‘s leaders would rather be politically correct than victorious!

    If you have any doubts about the above information, Google “Thomas Jefferson vs. the Muslim World.”

  92. I was at the Trump Rally in West Bend, WI last night. We said the Pledge of Allegiance and sang the national anthem. I am voting for Trump to end all the “crap” that Obama created over the last 7 1/2 year. Obama is a disgrace to our country.

  93. This Muslim piece of shit is the scourge of this country. Anybody who had any doubts about this no good son a of bitch should have no doubt anymore that he is doing his best to destroy the USA from the inside for his Muslim brethren… What a low life bastard!

  94. What an ass. Is he gone crazier. The Pledge of Allegiance has been said in the country for over 300 years and one ass of a president bans it. I’m glad I didn’t vote for hime.

  95. The PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE should be mandatory for EVERYONE. You are pledging your loyalty to the United States of America, where you live. New U.S. citizens recite the pledge. What the hell is wrong with people. This is NOT ok. You want to update the words? Run a contest for suggestions and let the populace vote. You dont want to pledge your allegiance to your country? Get the fuck out & go find another country where you dont have to make a pledge of loyalty to that country. I’ve checked a few different countries that I’ve seen on House Hunters Intl. They all require some sort of pledge of loyalty as well as learning the language.

  96. So in reading this article did anyone notice the bizarre placement of the socks for homeless group? So the person was asked to comment on the executive order and oh, let me put a bit there for my non-profit. But even more bizarre….in the middle of this….

    “Fappy The Anti-Masturbation Dolphin, a mascot for a Christian organization that travels around the country educating children about the dangers and consequences of masturbation, told ABC News he believes in what Utah is doing.

    “It is important that children become the unique individuals that this country wants them to be. Conforming into the perfect little human beings that God intended them to be has always been the American way. It is important to remember that our Lord and Savior loves each and every one of us, unless we masturbate, then we’ll burn in Hell for eternity.”

    What the heck is this doing in this article? This is reporting?

  97. First of all if you are a citizen of the United States of America YOU ARE AMERICAN! Whether Muslim Amish Jewish or otherwise inclined you ARE American. One nation Under God is inclusive of all religions it’s not one nation under Jesus or one nation under Allah it’s one nation under GOD meaning your incarnation of the term God is inclusive. With liberty and justice for all is in the Goddamn Constitution of the United States! Just because someone doesn’t “feel” they have those things doesn’t mean that shouldn’t be or isn’t our goal as a nation and by not saying we are for justice and liberty of all then we cease to be for those standards. This is total BS and should not be allowed stop letting the bastards take our rights away! We the people of the United States of America cannot stand by and let this go on any longer! This aggression will not standing man!

  98. This man does not even deserve the right to live on american soil.. he is a piece of shit scum muslim terrorist and i will tell him to his face if given the opportunity…. I don’t know where he is from but he’ll be back there soon. i wish nothing but bad luck to him and i never wish that on anybody ever. i can’t wait until he and his monkey face wife leave the white house…….

  99. “illigitimate Muslim traitor”; well said Donald Trump!!! Anti-God, Anti-American, Illegal, Muslim Terrorist Traitor. Spawn of Satin. Our spineless, sniveling, corrupt government officials are not fit to call themselves Americans. May they all reside in the same level of Hell.

  100. He says he did it so the millions of minority’s can feel like they belong!
    What about the millions of millions more Peopke who believe in the pledge and believe in God!
    Do we not count anymore? Do we not mean anything, if The president wants equality for all then then include the millions more Americans who believe in the pledge and the Flag and more importantly God!!!

  101. Please people, do some recycling before getting roped into the high prices of garbage disposal. Having said that, I’m still not a fan of Obama and the negative impact he has made by dividing our beloved country through his inaction and lack of leadership in the mist of crisis. Only at the memorial service of the slain Dallas police officers have I first heard a speech from him to unite the country. Nice, but too little, too late.

  102. And look at all around him smiling???? SMH!!!! All of them should be handcuffed, put on a plane, and dropped off in Kenya or Iraq. Why do they leave their sorry country, and come here when we our known for our God, Guns, and Flag???? SMH!!!! I’m about to be brain dead! UGHH!!!! Trump 2016

  103. In the midst of this debacle of the first magnitude, there is good news folks! One of these days Almighty God is going to make a response with a guarantee — He will wipe every smile off the faces of that bunch you see pictured, including the POTUS himself! :-(

  104. The guy is way past the point of I N S A N E !!! … what a total piece of shit turd Obama is…

    HOWEVER, on a good note .. this is just another unconstitutional executive order .. and can be wiped out with the stroke of a pen in a matter of seconds. And as soon as Trump is president, that is EXACTLY what is going to happen.

    So, Obama, enjoy your new executive order for all of the 4 months that it will be around, you stupid fucktard!

  105. Why could they not just take out “Under God” and leave the pledge. But to ban it altogether is UnAmerican. If someone has a problem saying the pledge when they live in America then they need to leave.

  106. Im glad this has been done, Under God belongs in nothing about this country. We were not founded upon any particular religion,therefor nothing representing this country should be about a god… National Anthem is about the country, as the Pledge Once was, until Religious propaganda pushed to have under god where it did not belong.

  107. You must be joking. This is not mind control. This is what our nation is made up of. Now each individual can say or do what they want. Parents can tell their children not to say the allegiance to the flag if they want. But this county was founded on this allegiance and it’s an allegiance to our flag. If we can’t have an allegiance to our flag then what makes us different than other countries. Hell the President may as well take out all our American songs and pledges because I believe he considers us no long to be America but some other country. Lets see perhaps OBAMALAND. He wants us to be OBAMALANDIANS. :( ABSOLUTELY SHAMEFUL IN THIS TIME OF AGE.

  108. This is an outrage! Our country was founded and cemented with certain beliefs that involved the belief in God. Not until the last 15-20 years has anyone decided to be offended by having the word God in any of our fore fathers writings in which this country was established from. When is it okay to bend and twist things to fit the needs of a few. In respect to others beliefs or non beliefs, in my opinion history and tradition has a strong bearing on this issue.

  109. It’s about being a Patriot to America. This is what we all grew up on knowing that the USA gives us something to believe in that we the people have rights to do what we want. To take this away is like saying I cant be a patriot to what i believe in. To take pledge in our country everyday has inspired many to serve our country and keep it safe. When you were younger did you feel as if you didnt want to participate in the Pledge? That your teachers made you do something you didnt want to do? As i remember everyone would stand up Instantly and waited for the teacher to start. I dont ever remember anyone refusing or any group of polloticians trying to ban the pledge back then.

  110. Obama andcthe supporters of this non binding order should be frog marched, all of them, and face a firing squad at high noon. Not only is he an illegitimate illegal allien but he is an enemy of America. The time for talk is over our c forefathers would have this liberal trash on pikes lining the road to their final resting place, hell. Which is where all good Mudslimes go.

  111. Aside from the fact that an executive order is NOT a law….”One nation under God” was not originally part of the Pledge (I think it was added when Eisenhower (?) was President). It would have been so much more in keeping with free speech and open debate to have some Congressman/woman introduce legislation to remove the phrase, followed by vote, instead of this. BE CAREFUL WHO YOU VOTE FOR COME NOVEMBER ’cause there is more of this stuff down the road if we make the wrong choice.

  112. Sadly ladies and gentlemen of America, I a citizen of this great country of ours, can not believe that We The People are being dragged through the mud by the very people who we recently elected to clean up the mess that “Barry Sotore aka; B. Hussein obama he and his co-conspirators had made, since that time what we have learned, electing those people was just an exercise in futility. for 240 years America has been home to Billions and Millions of people born here and America had always opened it’s doors to millions and millions of Immigrants who wanted to flee their WAR torn countries and come here to feel safe and to prosper. The immigrants who entered agreed that they would first have to learn our way of doing things, they had to accept our Constitution and the laws that governed it, they also had to learn the Bill of Rights, so when they were out in the streets, among the citizenry they would not be strangers, but like the people that hired them and the ones they bumped elbows with while walking the sidewalks, they knew they were now Americans.
    They were Americans who had freedom that they never knew was real, but had only heard of, they learned if they worked hard and saved their money, they were free to make as much as they could, prosperity was everywhere. We had a Nation to build, rumors of war were all around, but they we, were Americans, non-stoppable and Free, what wonderful times they were, no one complained that to get a license to drive, they had to take a test so the streets would be safe, we had a draft for Military service and know one complained we just did what we had to do. The people of America were happy, they were working and with their earnings, they bought, homes,refrigerators, electric blankets, T.V.’s, washers and dryers, took vacations, had children and they never worried when they went out to play, that someone was going to kidnap them or harass, we recited the Pledge of Allegiance proudly and you could be whoever you wanted to be.
    In and just a few years before 2008 we saw our country was going through growing pains, but being Americans, shoot we could do anything, cars got bigger and faster, some got smaller and saved gas, Pac-Man replaced the TV., computers were in every home and gadgets were everywhere, music changed from being able to understand the words, to electricity coming out of guitars”You go Jimmy H.” Coke was domineering the world, but some were confused how to mix the dry powder to drink it, they gave up and went back to them Bad smelling cigarettes.
    In 2008 we could see a change was coming and a lot of US knew the change wasn’t going to be pleasant and obviously we were right. I’m not going to tell you what has happened in the past eight years, because I believe you already know that what was once a beautiful and prosperous country, has now become a nightmare. Vote for Mr. Trump and lets get our country back no matter what it takes, and I will be at your side.

  113. President Obama , you have been a curse to our nation, you are the faker of the faker, shame on you when you call yourself a christian

  114. As a military member I will be posting the pledge on my desk. This is and order not a law. By making this order I can no longer pledge my allegiance to this Republic which in effect means by default I cannot pledge allegiance to the Commander in Chief of this Republic.

  115. I can understand removing “under god” from the pledge due to separation of church and state, but we need the pledge as a daily reminder and understanding that we are a nation of people and should be proud to state this fact. You may not like were we are at in the moment but we are citizens. If we take that away we are one step closer to being people living within the borders. Empathy is never the answer! This simple pledge reminds me that we are a nation of the people and not corporations, (which just soon might be the case). If you give up your rights to be counted then we are not a nation of people but a place of existing. The uncertainty that we face currently is our fault, no one else to blame. Until we as a people, as a nation, demand our representatives to do what is right by us collectively we are doomed to fail. I can only hope that we will wake up as a people, of our nation and go into the streets, hand in hand together, to demand our representatives not do the elites work but the peoples work. Both parties are failing us. And the beat goes on. Look a little deeper at why the cost of healthcare is so high along with the legal license the Rx producers have to rob us. Look at how the banking and finance industries were allowed to bring the world to it’s knees. These are just a few. Shame on you and me!

  116. Revelations prophecies have to be fulfilled before we are all called to heaven I guess. I take comfort in knowing I’m one day close to seeing God face to face!

  117. “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all…
    ENOUGH SAID.. I’ll repeat it when I won’t how I won’t and so will my kids u dnt like it cover your damn ears and shut ur eyes..

  118. “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all
    I’ll say it when I won’t and how I won’t and so will my kids.. if u dnt won’t to hear it or see me or them with our hand overy our heart, shut ur eyes and put ur fingers in ur ears..

  119. Let him have his fun! because God is still in control….remember HE wrote the end of the Holy Book and nothing will be allowed to happen unless God allows it. It will come around and bite them all in the ass, What a victory that will be!

  120. You think this is objectionable? When he realizes that he’s only got a few months left he’ll go into a scorched-Earth mode, after which it will be hard to distinguish the U.S. from Cuba.

  121. The Pledge did not include the words under God when it was written by Francis Bellamy, a Baptist minister, Mason, and prominent Christian socialist, in 1893.
    It originally read, “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
    The Christian socialist movement was founded on the moral teachings of Jesus in response to the greed and labor abuses of 19th century industrial capitalism.

  122. This is so horrific, I am speechless… When Obama was named president, I felt a pallor of doom come over me. I felt like I was watching some unreal movie, where all the people were cheering for some horrible thing, and everyone who was watching the movie knew that this was actually something horrible that just started. I have been watching time after time, this feeling of doom being verified; Here we are again. The way this country is headed is down right scary. I am hoping that maybe just maybe Evan McMullin can somehow make it to the presidency. He is the only one I have heard talk that even makes sense any more. He does love this country and has been working to keep it safe with the CIA for years. He is God fearing and knows how the enemies to this country work. He is not a traitor, nor a man who would speak of others in such a divisive way as Trump has. All I know is I don’t have much hope for our country with the way it is being run right now, and will keep being run with Hillary Clinton. GOD HELP US ALL.

  123. Is nation needs to Stop changing our haratage to suit people coming here for the American dream.they came here so they need to adapt to our culture, not the other way around.
    This is a out rage! It makes me sick to know that we as a nation have let this continue for not one term but two.
    Give people free stuff and they will follow like cattle to the slaughter house. What made American great was hard work and and a dream could be achieved by such.
    What is to be gained by hand outs? The degradation of this once great nation. God bless us all.

  124. What I don’t understand…this was Mitch McConnell’s bill, and it passed with virtually every single Republican in the House and Senate voting for it, and it was opposed by every single Democrat. Why did Obama sign it?

  125. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
    and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation
    under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
    This is what the government is trying to get us not to say or believe:(
    Satan is at work which is what we should be doing & Jesus will be directing our paths, & protecting us! Let us not be feeble in our mindset or give into the temptations of the flesh, GOD wants us to be examples & a witness to those who don’t believe or know. May God be glorified, we cannot do this of ourselves, only He that has created us can do this & no one else! I cannot sleep until the LORD JESUS CHRIST is made manifest not only in body but also in SPIRIT for there is no other NAME under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved. Praise God we are alive! & will remain with Him FOREVER!!!!!!Do not follow after the words of an abomination such as this, tell others that Jesus is the Way the Truth & the life

  127. I suggest you people need to start writing your state congressman and reverse this very damaging decision quickly.

    A country needs patriotism to be strong. This foolish decision will open some very dangerous doors.

  128. Here are words in the 4th stanza of “The Star Spangled Banner”: “Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, and this be our motto, In God is our trust.” The U.S. needs a new national anthem.

  129. Woow!no words can describe,your true colors is coming out!Are you serious?So People we have to have Peoples Power to Vote TrUMP PENCE in November!Such a disgusting move!And the media is not saying anything about this?So Crooked!

  130. sounds like something a socialist would do. Fuck him and his isis brotherhood! if its about “GOD” then throw your money away pig! because it all has god printed on it. you didnt build this country, youre destroying it from within. eat a bag a dicks!

  131. Send him to prison, to never be given an appeal or pardon. With the next president, draft an executive order that his name be stricken from all documents and laws adopted during his presidency!

  132. You sorry piece of shit Obama and his administration. You are a disgrace to our country you fucking rag headed bitch. I wish you was gone already cause you are a fucking disgrace Fuck You.

  133. If this pledge of allegiance is ‘mind control’, then the Quran should also be banned. Today. The kind of daily streams hatespeech against women and girls and against unbelievers, and calling for the annihilation (mass-murders’) of ‘unbelievers’ (Kafira) which is spouted in mosques during every prayer-service represents a constant stream of mind-control being carried out against the unfortunately badly brainwashed people in the middle- and far-east, and now also those living in the USA.

  134. Wow this is worst thing ever I am ashamed to be call an American over all these comments. And who cares about a masterbation dolphin that’s mess up we need to ban that dolphin from going into schools.

  135. This needs to be stopped. This one man has ruined this country. Allowing him to do this now shows what idiots are in charge of this country.

  136. This is a very sad day for Americans of our beloved country! The President, based on his own personal beliefs has no official right or capacity to ban The Pledge of Allegiance in all schools. Those who choose to no recite the Pledge, can opt out as they always have.

    Imigrants coming into this country and choose to becone American Citizens take a pledge to denounce their country, but we know this doesnt happen.

    We, as American, cannot allow this to happen. I believe it is abuse of the Preisents executive powers.

  137. Hey idots, “under god” was added in the 1950s, not by founding fathers. And this is NOT, NEVER HAS BEEN, NEVER WILL BE a christian nation (or a nation of any other religion). We have FREEDOM of religion — that means you can’t force it on those of us who know the easter bunny and Santa Claus and all your other imaginary friends aren’t real.

    GOOD JOB Mr. President, yet another feather in his cap!

    • Whatever you believe rights do not come from government, it is the higher power who created us, that’s all that is acknowledged in the pledge..nothing to do with Christianity. If you think it is imaginary, then try a world without it, like maybe the USSR or China

  138. We can’t get rid of this guy soon enough. He has spent eight years trying to destroy this country. What’s evn more amazing is the rest of those morons standing there smiling.

  139. hold on to your ass AMERICA.. I bet he has a lot more in store
    WHO CARES IF THEY ARE OFFENDED.. I AM OFFENDED THAT WE KEEP GETTING SHAFTED.. IF THEY DON’T LIKE O U R COUNTRY AND THE WAY WE RUN IT … GIT OUT !! GIT OUT!!! GIT OUT!!!… INCLUDING OBAMA ..WHY ARE ALL THE RULES CHANGED FOR PEOPLE THAT CAME HERE???? this country was founded on the beliefs we know and love…. that’s why every one comes here.. legally or not … I am sick of this jerk and his pen … IMPEACH OBAMA … CONGRESS STAND UP TO THIS ASS HOLE … WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU PEOPLE THINKING?????

    HE MAKES ME SICK

  140. All of these people with him should be charged with treason, what a sad pathetic country we have become. Kennedy put a man on the Moon, Obama put a man in the ladies Bathroom, and people see him as a hero…

  141. Obama thinks he is smart and devious when really he’s a sad little puppet with the hands of rich elitist white men up his ass, who hate him inwardly and laugh because he has been their little tool for destroying our nation. Barry, you will get your just rewards, you sad little man.

  142. Oh my God! I grew up saying the Pledge in school. Everyone knows that Obama is nothing but a lying deceiving Muslim who has destroyed America bit by bit. The Pledge of Allegiance is no way demeaning to anyone! I now definitely hope that Trump wins and gets rid of every trace of that man plus that he presses charges for Treason. What is happening to the American People that we don’t stand up for ourselves? I hope that Obama burns for his transgressions against our beautiful America.. In God we trust!! Who the hell does he think he is? then saying all they need to do is rewrite the Pledge of Allegiance? Get real and pull your head out of your ass Moron!

  143. This is an insult to all Americans, just because it has the name under God. We have really sealed our faith in the Eyes of God when using his name has become offensive to the President of the United States. Today Obama has lost my little respect I had for him as the President. A person that does not know the values of this Nation nor its heart can not carry that Title. And for those who voted for him will be responsible for the judgement that will follow us as a nation. We have elected a socialist to be president and these are the results. I am beyond insulted, offended and disgusted. My Prayer is for loving kindness to our nation and has Jesus said God forgive them for they do not know what they are doing. We will reap what the nation has sowed.

  144. I have said it from day one Obama is no good! he not only is a Terrorist he is the Anti Christ! What is happening to the American People? As Americans we are proud of our Country and Everything it stands for. We stand up for what we Believe in! We don’t let some brainless moron say what we are to Believe in! America is a patriotic country what has happened? and for Hillary to stand there and kiss his ass and act all innocent about “the emails”, “Money supporting questionable agencies” and much much more just makes me sick! Come on People Wake up do you want to be forced to dress the way someone tells you? Practice or not pratice your faith the way it is dictated to you? This is where it is headed! I grew up saying the Pledge of alligance in school! It does not degrade or put down anyone what so ever! It is apart of America’s Culture and to suggest it being changed is out outragous ! What is next? I guess that all those “people” who are left out of America’s “true values” should not spend America’s Money or even hold it in their hands “In God We Trust” America was built on the Believe that all men are created equal and no man should stand or be put above Another! Obama has put himself upon a thrown with his stupid laws, and don’t get me started on Obama care? Affordable Health care? For whom may I ask.. He is a bigot liar and deserves to go down for treason against our Beautiful country.. Wake up America lets stand together and take back our Country! The Land of the free and home of the brave is heading down a long dark and scary road, we need a President who has the balls to put America back on track not a kiss ass who can’t stand on her own two feet! #Word

  145. Hard to believe that anyone who read the entire article is foolish enough to believe that it was true. (Try fact checking). Nonsense like this is written to make the people who share it or actually believe this garbage look stupid and in many cases comments are racist and bigoted.

  146. Is this treason? I really wish someone with authority would do something. “One nation under God” is the part he doesn’t like, which, does not alienate anyone…we were founded on these principles, and dedicated to God at it’s founding. No matter how you twist and turn it, it just ain’t so. Let’s try to change a few things the way they are changing things. Let’s not call them Liberals anymore, let’s call them anti-Christ, because that just about sums it up. They are not removing religion from our schools and public places. They are only removing Christianity. We have the right to freedom of religion. Are they going to change that too. Hillary made a statement that I found upsetting. She said that Christians need to change because their beliefs are getting in the way of the Abortion laws.

  147. Re-elect Obama!! I love this man! Throw the religious bigots out of our great country, let them be cannon fodder in Iran to steal their precious oil from other countries! Ban all religions!!

  148. II Chronicles 7:14 reads:
    “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and PRAY, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
    All who wants to go to Heaven need to OBEY, Acts 2:38,39; Matthew 28:19
    Matthew 28: 18-20
    18 And Jesus came and spake unto them saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
    19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost(which is Jesus).
    20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of world. Amen.
    Acts 2:38, 39
    38 Then Peter sanid unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost,
    39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all who are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. (afar off means you and me)
    May the Lord God Bless and Help all who read this.

  149. If you truly read (break it down and understand) the pledge, it says pure truth. If people don’t want to conform to our country… then GET OUT!! Hello people, our country was founded on God and being loyal to our country, as a family is loyal to itself. In other words, if you can’t, don’t want to, or otherwise etc, then find another country you can be loyal to. Stop trying to change our country for the worse!

  150. What a sad day this is. Kids are not being brainwashed, rather being brought up with morals that will follow them as they mature into adulthood. If we keep the same leadership in this country for the next 4 or 8 years, the great USA will fall. The only person that will fix this cancer is Trump.

  151. Any nation where a citizen faces, quote, “Individuals who violate this order can face fines of up to $10,000 and up to one year in federal prison.” for saying the pledge of allegiance to that nation, but face no consequences whatsoever for destroying subpoenaed evidence, is a nation that has, not justice, but arbitrary rule.,

  152. How in the Hell has this piece of shit lasted this long? I just don’t understand that something we have been doing for decades he has said it is against the Law. How STUPID can this ASS be?!!!! impeach him Now Vice President Biden I did like but if he is backing up with this he will need to go also.

  153. Obama is a traitor, PERIOD. He upholds none of an America citizens ethics or values, because he was essentially raised as a Muslim. Which is a completely different culture. Nothing wrong with being a Muslim as long as they do not force their religion or culture on anyone else.

  154. At age 77, I have never recited the added phrase and never will. I also cross our the substituted phrase on our currency, remembering the motto I grew up with, meaning “Out of many, one.”

  155. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands One Nation UNDER GOD indivisible with liberty and justice for all🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  156. What gets me is that he says “in his personal opinion” When did the president become a dictatorship? What happen to the peoples servant? Why not let the country decide? Not one person. It isn’t right to force any beliefs on anyone else and it seems like that is all he has done during his term. If we are not like him, WE are wrong!

  157. This has to be the most stupid Executive Order ever signed. NO ONE FORCED me to say the Pledge of Allegiance, when I was in school, I had the choice to remain silent. If I’m reading the comments correctly, should Clinton be elected, she needs to remove this Executive Order; or she may be Impeached, before she finishes putting her family photos on her desk. I would REALLY LIKE to see Congress stand-up and deal with this Executive Order, but it’s an election year so they’re all to afraid to do anything.

  158. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has already offered her support of president Obama’s decree and has vowed to uphold the order if she wins in November’s general election. She echoed his concerns about the pledge’s language and suggested that the pledge’s mention of God sends the wrong message to America’s children

  159. IMPEACH OBAMA BEFORE HE COMPLETELY RUINS THIS NATION. He hates America. He hates Americans. He loves Muslims because he is one. He loves illegal immigrants. WE ARE ONE NATION UNDER GOD. WE WIRSHIO GID, not Allah. Something has to be done with him. I don’t want him retiring with a lifetime salary, security and medical care with our tax dollars. HE IS THE WORST PRESIDENT WE’VE EVER HAD. GOD PLEASE HELP US. AMEN

  160. You are a disgrace to the Unite States and the Presidency! You have put all the people that defended our flag, our oath, under the bus! You would not be in the position you are in if it were not for our military defending your rights and privileges !!!!

  161. The Pledge of Allegiance Hasbrouck been attacked for years and upheld by the Supreme Court. I guess Obama forgot about that. Another thing is executive orders only applies to the Executive branch and can be overturned the next day.

  162. He may be able to change the law, but we will all one day bow before the God who is the creator of everything. Pray that all will worship the one and only true GOD.

  163. Foolish. We are country that has spiraled into stupidity, literally, as the cultural foundations of country are systematically dismantled. It seems our only unifying allegiance to to our own selfishness and empty legality. I suppose this was only a matter of time. We seem to be determined to pass on no message, tradition, moral, or meaning of what has previously built America, and why would we? We seem to see children as nothing more than liabilities when they were once responsibilities. Freedom of choice allows us to destroy our babies, freedom of speech is the distortion of porn for our kids, the right to bear arms means blowing people away in surreal mindless shootings, marriage means nothing, family means nothing, and our federal government is merely a legal apparatus for the will of the ruling corporate elite to ensure their own priority status. We stand for nothing, and we will fall for nothing.

  164. This is a sad,sad day giving up our allegiance when others come to our country wanting what we have and our happy to learn OUR PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE for their FREEDOM from where they came from. When many come and hang their flag from their country on their homes and burn our flag, and have NO allegiance to OUR country they need to leave. We need to stand up for OUR FLAG and COUNTRY and THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE. Our children need to learn this is the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. Millions come from far and near from other countries to have the FREEDOMS we have. Men and women have died for our flag and country. We need to pray and fast for our President (Whom I did not vote for) to get SAVED and KNOW JESUS CHRIST and have a personal relationship with HIM (JESUS) to CHANGE his HEART about OUR COUNTRY. We have been founded on Christian values, The BIBLE, LAW & RULES. We already see what taking GOD out of schools have produced a LAWLESS, HATED DIVIDED PEOPLE. Wanting only ENTITLEMENTS, a FREE RIDE, FOOD STAMPS, PHONE, GET WHAT EVER YOU CAN AND PAY & DO NOTHING. Making people feel helpless,hopeless and having low ESTEEM. The PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE gives VALUE, knowing you belong to THE GREAT COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. PRIDE that people have DIED for the RED,WHITE, AND BLUE! HOPE your a part of something BIGGER than YOURSELF. I KNOW THERE ARE HURTING PEOPLE HAVING HARD TIMES AND THEY NEED FOOD STAMPS, A PHONE FOR JOBS INTERVIEWS. I’m not talking to about them. But the people who spend their money on DRUGS! DRINKING! and Cigarettes instead of FOOD, RENT and other essentials and don’t want to pay for what they need and want. We need to give our kids a chance to know they are valuable to family and society, the world and they can BE anything they are capable of being. That’s why we are ONE NATION UNDER GOD. Looking to the CREATOR FIRST knowing HE has a plan for our life. That we need to give a helping hand to our neighbors with love and understanding. Mr. President Obama you made a GREAT MISTAKE TODAY taking the PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE away from OUR SCHOOLS & GOVERNMENT PLACES OF BUSINESS.

  165. Stupid. If people say under God, why not refer to their own when saying it. As far as atheists, just don’t say under God. As far as the other stuff, you’re an American, your alligence should be to your country. If not, move out.

  166. I PLEDGE ALLEGENCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITWD STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS ONE NATION UNDER GOD WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

    IMPEACH AND HANG HIM!

    TREASON!

    That pledge is divisive? HES DIVISIVE! He’s torn this country apart with his backwards talk and politics!

    Hang him from the flag pole underneath the flag he hates so much!

    He’s not even fit to take up the same space!

    This Barrack H. Obama you make me sick!

    What else does this guy plan to ruin before he leaves the office? I can’t wait to find out. Of all the bullshit I’ve seen him get away with and now this?! COME ON! WHEN WILL HE CROSS THE LINE?! His diplomatic immunity has to come to an end. He is an embarrassment to the United States of America and even his own faith for this! He’ll do anything to take us back into the Stone Age again and turn us over to our enemies on a silver platter!

  167. The POTUS does not get to write legislation under “separation of powers”. So this will quickly be voided … if Congress is paying attention.

  169. I am a SGI Buddhist of Nichiren Daishonin, we do not believe in the existence of “Gods” but we believe in loyalty and betterment of our country and society. So the simplistic idea that everyone could think that by saying “GOD” could represent their own the truth it is that will not apply for us at all.

    We are the responsible of our acts and mistakes so we should take responsibility of it, to point out fingers and saying that the president it is changing the country or destroying it is like saying that we are all weak sheeps that follow blindly a pastor or that we didn’t have a real strong country from the beginning, are we that weak that an executive order could throw us down like a country?

    We are weak like a country if we keep labeling people and separating us by religious beliefs and enter a nightmare like some countries around the globe that have been killing each other by hundreds of years, do we really want that or it is better to open our minds and accept the truth that if we do not unite thru tolerance and understanding then will be preposterous to think that we would by forcing one way of thinking over the great variety that america always represented.

  170. Is Obama fking kidding me or what? IF he wants to be under Sharia Law the He can move his family an self to a country that has that and good ridence to them. Hillary says she will continue this Anti-American Pledge!
    The closer we get to Election Day WE SEE the need for TRUMP to win the WH and for the GOP to win ALL the seats!
    Even though I have Schumer and mostly D’s to write to, I’m letting them have it about this E.O. and to STOP it!

  171. This must be a joke, really??? Why do all other religions and beliefs have more rights than the American Christian?
    This is what our country is founded on.
    I am disappointed.
    I will continue to say the pledge anywhere I am….that is my right as an American Christian

  172. What did all those who placed their lives on the line for this country? This country was founded for religious freedom. This President needs to resign now. Hillary where are your brains to agree with this.
    This is the last straw.
    Trump needed now.

  173. what would one expect from a non-citizen-illegal-president…..????
    this FPoS needs to disappear for ever…. what a HUGE MISTAKE AMERICA made with this Soro’s puppet….. and Killary will be just as bad….
    TRUMP 2016 & 2020

  174. This is unbelievable. lI had heard chatter that he wanted to do this but never thought he would and of course never dreamed Hillary would endorse it. If Trump and the Right can’t use this to run the final laps in the race and win the Oval Office, then this country is too far gone to save. I am still in disbelief. I need to get on the horn and let everyone know what I just read. OMG!

  175. By saying ‘liberty and justice for all’, we ignore the grievances of millions of Hispanics, African Americans and Muslims who feel they have neither liberty nor justice.” Does anyone beside me notice the word white is missing, christian is avoided, veterans, children, teachers, women and the list goes on. He only ever refers to the previous groups mentioned.

  176. Screw you obumbler, I will not refrain from repeating the Pledge of Allegiance to the United States of America!

    I took an oath in 1962 and repeated it every time I re-enlisted in the U S Navy to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. I have never been released from that oath. I will always honor it.

    I do not have to honor orders that you, mr obumbler, have no authority to give.

    Barry :-3)
    PO1 USN RET

  177. What in the world just happened in this day in history? If God doesn’t judge America for all her offensive display of superiority and overbearing pride then there is no God in heaven! BUT I know there is a Supreme Almighty God who’s looking down seeing that man sitting there with that pompous look on his face along with those standing behind him. We say, “God bless America” NO WAY people we need to start saying “God Help America”! and pray for our country and our future leaders. The Beginnings of Sorrows for America has become even more sorrowful for all concerned as I see it. This is to my opinion on what has happened here today.

  178. what a crock of shit that asshole in office is he a demon if I ever saw one yeah let’s deny Christianity and absorb all religions contrary then deny his hatred and fleecing of america isn’t being carried out by and , motivated by religion though showing only averse behavior towards Christians as if they were to blame for his accuracy an attempt to destroy this nation as week minded Americans put what a satanist in office as his piecemeal campaign for CHANGE. was motivated by an ancient daemon named Satan with technology and machinery probably thinks he’s getting one over of God Almighty by trying His children on a daily basis. seeking some sort of illusion by abuse of power to equate himself as a despot. can’t wail for that a piece of shit to step out of office. Him and his fucked up family.

  179. I am reading this but cannot believe it. Are we not a sovereign nation? Why would we not have our children resight the pledge of allegiance in school. We welcome people from all over the world and many different religion and faiths to become part of our great nation and with dad comes an allegiance. I am a strong supporter of President Obama but with this strongly disagree. Should I consider voting for Donald Trump?

  180. And, btw-no one in this world has a right to FORCE you to say anything you do not want to say, including the fucking pledge of allegiance. So all of you RWNJ’s can KMA. And the rest of you racist, bigoted, pretend christians, as well.

    • Our President is a disgrace. He is getting rid of all our founding fathers and Presidents established for us and our country. He should be impeached or not allowed to make these decisions the remainder of his term. Trump is our only hope. Wake up America!!! Trump for President. 2016!!!

  181. Naive “Americans” wanted their “First Black President” – Now, see what this insane “Mad Muslim” has done ! The mental African retard is “Too Stupid” to “Balance The Budget” and create jobs to overcome the trillions of dollars of debt that this Muslim morons has allowed to happen.Obama has done “Zero” to stop domestic terrorism in the United States, but he is always ready to offer up a lame eulogy of how none of his little Muslim buddies are ever responsible. Obama offers “Tongue In Cheek” condolences to slain and butchered police officers. Obama “Blames” the 2nd Amendment and guns, yet, he does not instruct ATF, the FBI or any other Federal agency to “Raid” Muslim mosques to search for weapons and terrorists. With Muslim Jeh Johnson in charge of the Department of Homeland Security it would be difficult for even “Two-Faced Obama” to justify his actions to “Raid” mosques although everyone knows it is the Muslim ragheads, who are the diligent domestic terrorists. Obama The Traitor released five known Taliban terrorists from Gitmo. Obama The Traitor “Lifted The Arms Embargo” on Vietnam, to supply “America’s Old Enemy” with new weapons. The insanity of Ämerica’s Mad Muslim” just never stops. Now, the Negro Pervert has taken the ultimate step and “Banned The Pledge Of Allegiance”” From American schools. The Russian Revolution began because Russian citizens had finally had enough of the Tsar, the Tsarina and the Russian royal family. Citizens stormed the palace and “The Bolsheviks” captured the royal family. After about two weeks, “The Bolsheviks” decided that they wanted to permanently eliminate the possibility that the Russian royal family would ever return to power. “The Bolsheviks” stood every member of the royal family, to include the children, against the wall and “Executed” them. The time has come for Americans to toss aside the “Political Correctness” garbage and recognize the real “Threat” in Washington D.C. World History has proven “The Bolsheviks” actions correct in Russia because Russian nobility never returned to the Russian government. America is Överdue” for some serious “House Cleaning” in Washington D.C. To Hell With Obama ! I hope this bastard perishes violently in public and takes his whole miserable family with him straight through the Gates Of Hell !

  182. FUCK THAT ANTI-CHRIST MUSLIM TERRORIST NIGGER ASSHOLE never voted for his nigger ass and all those niggers that supported him now wish they had kept their votes to themselves… they got a dose of their own shit from a higher level by voting that asshole into office twice. He might be their president but he will never be, nor was he ever mine.

    HE NEEDS TO BE BANNED FROM SOCIETY WHAT A FUCKING ATHEIST , ISLAM TERRORIST NIGGER ASSHOLE ANTI-CHRIST PRICK.

    And when you look at those fucking puppets standing around him smiling as he does it… they too need their asses kicked for supporting such idiocy…

  183. The new President needs to void and negate all the negative fuck ups of Obama asshole, and reinstate the peoples rights and religious rights regardless of those islam assholes do not like our form of religion, we to not like theirs… has that asshole ilsam Obama ruled to forbid them from wearing their nightgowns in public, from wearing dots on their heads which offends many Christians, has he allowed Christians to kill Islams and get away with murdering and torturing them like he and his administration has allowed????

    FUCK NO… SUBJECT OBAMAS WIFE AND CHILDREN TO EXACTLY WHAT HE HAS CONDONED BY HIS OWN RADICAL, ISLAM TERRORIST BROTHERS AND I GUARANTEE HE WILL HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION WHEN HIS WIFE IS BEATEN, RAPED BY 10-15 ISLAM EXTREMISTS / TERRORISTS, FORCED TO BECOME THEIR WIFE AND SAME WITH HIS DAUGHTER… watch how fucking fast that nigger changes his mind about what he thinks now is so fucking great… about his islam extremist terrorist brotherhood… the asshole prick…. certainly will finally see the light when that happens and it could not happen to a nicer prick.

  184. This is bull shit, you need to leave well enough alone and get the hell out of America and take your family with you. And while your at it take the Clintons with you. I’ll take my chances with Trump. At least he loves his country.

  185. This is ridiculous! This is AMERICA! I called the complaint number (785) 273-0325 to let them have it AND I WILL CONTINUE TO CALL REPEATEDLY AND HANG UP UNTIL THIS ORDER IS LIFTED.

  186. I guess Obama wants “under Allah” instead of under God! Not any mention of God in the 2012 convention and for a person who “claims” to be a Christian is a joke. The Muslims can have him. He has taken the side of them in everything they do.

  187. Notice how all those around him are laughing and smiling, Cant wait for the day when we can round all this scum up, by dragging them out of caves, their offices wherever, and giving them a trial they deserve not, finding them guilty of being satanist, traitors, and more and then killing them in ways they could not even dream of.

  188. It’s a sad day in America! He started his term by pledging on the Qu’ran, he doesn’t salute the American Flag, he cut spending for our military & weakened it tremendously, he stated that America was no longer a Christian Nation, & no one has stopped him; our Senators & Representatives are gutless and just follow his tail like puppies, Americans go blindly day to day and now we are surprised that he has done away with the pledge? Since the 60’s & the hippy revolution, at least 85% of the schools no longer recite the pledge, and parents- where were you???? No wonder God’s wrath is unfolding on us. America is no longer the America our soldiers have fought to defend! Christians remember; “So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven. Matthew 10:32-33. His day of reckoning is coming & he will not escape the wrath of the God he denied! To his atheist followers; “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Psalm 14:1
    WAKE UP Christians; it’s time to shout our faith from the roof tops!

  189. Okay. I don’t like it but I see his point. I agree with you Liberty. This country was created by Christians and, because of this foundation, ALL of us who have replied and commented on this issue need to take a step back and acknowledge the fact that living in the United States of America is a PRIVILEGE (a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group of people) and HONOR. Because of this Christian foundation, we welcome those from other countries, religions, races, etc. When you become a citizen, you earn those rights and freedoms that ALL Americans enjoy. You cannot call yourself an American until you do the legwork, educate yourself and officially pledge to be an American. Do NOT, for one second, believe that you are OWED anything from anyone, including our government. By pledging to be an American, you are promising to obey our laws and respect other citizens. THAT IS WHAT THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE IS ALL ABOUT. Go ahead, take the “God” part out if you want to, BUT we must continue to teach our children AND new Citizens that ALL of us expect you to behave as an American.

  190. Many, many other nations DEMAND an oath of allegiance to the nation in which they reside that they remain a citizen of that nation and have NO OTHER citizenship. Outlaw, prohibit and ban all dual citizenships in America. You are either American or you are not, if you want to remain a citizen.

  191. So Sad!!! There just aren’t words to express the lack of respect for those involved in this act. I guess anyone can call themselves a president … what does that really mean? However … God is still on the Throne and Reigns Above All!

  192. Obama and his moldy crew are always working the gutters. My guess is that he reached down into a deep manhole and pulled this one out with the hope that Trump would OVER-REACT to it which would only play further into Hillary’s hands, as Hillary immediately came out and announced she agreed with Obama’s action and if elected president would keep Obama’s Executive Order #13738 on the books. As rotten as it is, it’s up to Trump to keep his cool and hopefully somehow get elected wherein he has already stated he will cancel all of Obama’s Executive Orders on his first day as president. So cross your fingers, say your prayers, and donate a couple bucks to Trumps election campaign.

  193. Don’t be surprised if that Muslim in the White House finds a way to weasel into a third term. We are about to enter into a state of high unrest and much anxiety. Fasten your seat belt, it’s going to be a hard ride!!!

  194. Your network should be ashamed of yourself!! My father fought for this country in WWII and if he were still alive today he would be so ashamed!!!!

  195. This is total bull.. The pledge of allegiance is a good thing. I helps to instill good values in children.

    “This is a great day not just for Atheists, but for all Americans who value freedom. Forcing children to pledge blind allegiance to this country and profess a belief in a God is extremely dangerous in developing young minds and amounts to little more than government mind control.”

    This quoted statement is 100% false. You are not pledging allegiance to the government. You are pledging it to the country. That might mean you disapprove of a tyrannical government (like the one we have right now) because you want to protect your country from all threats foriegn and domestic.

    This federal government is OUT OF CONTROL atm. They are operating way outside of the constitution and the founders intents. The founders left us a tool to fix this problem. We need to give the power back to the states like the constitution intends. Article V gives us the power to do so. We need a convention of states. It is in the works already. Visit the site, learn what it is about, sign the petition and maybe even volunteer to help.

  196. Can’t anyone just report the news without pushing there fucking political agenda? Jesus christ, I’m so tired of reading this left slanted bullshit.

  197. THIS IS BALONEY!! I’m no Obama supporter, but if you look at the Executive Order cited in this posting, you’ll see it concerns a “ORDER OF SUCCESSION WITH THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY”. It has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE!!

  198. I have known for the past 7 years that President Obama has wanted to destroy America. We silent majority Americans loyal and true to God and our country must rise up and shout our love, faith loyalty to God and American. Get rid of the politically correct politicians and those who are not loyal to America and our Constitution.

  199. What I hear in the majority of these posts is anger and rage. I understand. But name calling will not solve the problem. If the voters in this nation will stop voting their pocketbook (what is financially best for them) and vote principals, morals, and even some common sense, we could actually turn this country around. Will it happen…probably not. We have become a nation of people who want what they want when they want it. No more sacrifice, no more what is right… and there is right and wrong not shades of gray where we explain away our choices because it makes us feel better….the mentality of those who believe right is relevant…that it depends on the situation and the person. We stopped standing up for right a long time ago because it wasn’t personally advantageous. Thank God for some, and I think especially of our military, who are still willing to stand up and do the right thing and sacrifice their lives for us. Whether you want to hear it or not, God had a plan when he made man…but he gave us free will and we have exercised that to the place that we do not want a God that tells us that something we want is wrong. If you can do away with God, then you can make your own right or wrong and no one can tell you what to do. Perhaps God is giving us what we deserve for turning our back on Him. Pray for mercy.

  200. Nothing this shameless fool does should surprise anyone. He doesn’t think of American as great, his sympathy lies with his barbarian Muslim brothers.

  201. apparently people can’t read.

    wow, this is not for real. and to think these idiots VOTE!

    no wonder we’re in deep doo-doo this election year.

  202. If he were white, this traitor would have been impeached by now. Other countries laugh at us while terrorists excitedly take another step at destroying this country. All thanks to that douche we refer to as president and his lap dog Joe Biden. The people need to take back this country.

  203. Obama is an idiot, possibly the biggest idiot in United States. He seems ignorant or lack care for the fact that this country was intended to be a Christian nation, founded on Christian principals. Attacking Christian value is attacking United States itself. He’d better stop while he’s ahead or he’ll have to answer to God someday.

  204. What a worthless piece of muslim shit this illegal nigger has went to far he needs to be removed now because in november this fuckin pile garbage is goin to declair Marshal Law not election and he stays in office and nobody in this country will have any choice but be muslim or die so hopefully something will happen to this stupid worthless pile of black dog shit. Let HOPE AND PRAY IN OUR CHRISTIAN WAY

  205. The Pledge of Allegiance should be recited in our schools. How dare he take this away. Why is the news media not reporting this? Why should we not unite as one nation under God. What are we to believe in? This is divisive. Stop this nonsense. If you don’t like this country leave it but don’t try to change our great country.

  206. How can Obama make this kind of change without consulting the American people. I am shocked to my roots to hear he has gotten away with this. As an older American I have watched the past eight years as this man wrecked this country. This is no longer the country I was born in. I’m brokenhearted to see what Obama has turned our country into. We the people is gone, home of the free, land of the brave, gone. Worst he has no shame for wrecking a beautiful country.

    We need a survey of all Americans telling him this is unacceptable we want our America back!!!!!!

  207. This is the most discussing thing he’s done so far!! If you can’t accept that the so called man, I use that term very lightly, is destroying America from the inside then your blind or one of the enemy also!!
    If you don’t want to take the pledge or conform to our country. Then please by all means go back to the 3rd hell hole you came from! It’s time for the real Anericans to stand up..take up arms and stop this shit going on in our country. It’s time to take back OUR WHITE HOUSE for the so called government. Time to hang Ubuma and Killery both for treason. We need to start taking out the radical Muslins with deadly force! It’s kill or be killed! Cowboys and Muslims! Take up your weapons and rid this country of all radical Muslims. Behead then as they have done to ours and others!!
    Time to start killing them!

  208. I’m sure that God will make His omniscient judgment on the one man who did the most to destroy the beauty and strength of the most wonderful country in the world, America, which was created by God, by sending Obama to eternal damnation where he belongs.

  209. I’m sorry, but didn’t we already abolish the phrase “one nation, under God” from the pledge of allegiance in schools?

  210. I’m an atheist, Hispanic nationalized American Citizen… I’ve never found the Pledge of Allegiance in any way divisive, or that my grievances were being ignored, or that I lacked liberty or justice.

    Our president is just a clown, plain a simple. He’s out to tear down our country, bit by bit, piece by piece.

  211. If this trend isn’t halted, America will be a Communist/Sharia law/gang banger nightmare in a couple of decades. I’m agnostic, but IMO, this is a full-frontal assault on America’s soul. If someone doesn’t want to say the pledge, they have that right, but to make it illegal because Blacks and Muslims are oppressed (which is complete bullshit) and atheists aren’t represented, and to fine anyone $10,000 for violating this zillionth dictatorial EO – words can’t convey my disgust.

    Obama is simply a traitor to America. Unfortunately, even if Trump wins, somehow I doubt that things will change for the better. The president doesn’t run America, the owners of the Fortune 500 companies and old money powers run the West, and they want to create order out of chaos – an absolute, despotic, high-tech order. If I had the money I’d move to Iceland.

  212. Listen Ya’al. An executive order is NOT law. The Kenyon is laughing at you cause you think every word out of his mouth is law.
    What ticks me off is that so many teachers, principles and other ignorant people listen to him

  213. I CANT BELIEVE THE MILATRY THE ONES WHO SWARE THE OATH HAS NOT KICK IN THE DOOR OF THE WHITE HOUSE AN DRAG THE DAM MAN OUT AN DO WHAT EVER . TO MANY THINGS HE HAS DONE WRONG

  214. Obama signed this order because of HIS belief that the Pledge violates the First Amendment. Isn’t that for a Judicial Branch to decide and not the Executive Branch? Seems the idiot Constitutional scholar doesn’t understand the Constitution and the separation of powers. Oh, that’s right… the Judicial Branch is into legislating so it must be OK (in Obama’s eyes) to cross over whenever you wish. Less than 5 months and this asshole can go play as much golf as he wishes. I just wonder what History is going to do to this guy. He is the worst leader this country has ever had. God Bless America!

  215. You comical libs must stand in front of the mirror for hours, practicing your class clown acts! Bet you weren’t popular in school either!

  216. ohhhhhhhhhh HOW DARE YOU!!! NOW SIGN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER BANNING ISLAM/MUSLIM TEACHING FROM ALL SCHOOLS!!!OUR CHILDREN’S DON’T WANT TO BE FORCED TO BOW EVERY MORNING TO PRAY TO “ALLAH” IF THE CHRISTIAN CAN’T BE ALLOWED TO PRAY TO THEIR “GOD”. HOW RIGHT IS THAT?? HOW IS THAT YOU GET INTO OFFICE AND YOU TEAR DOWN AMERICA PIECE BY PIECE JUST TO GET RID OF ANYTHING THAT HAD TO DO WITH “GOD” ?? YOU JUST HAVE TO MAKE THE ATHEISTS, MUSLIMS AND OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUPS HAPPY ONE LAST TIME AND PUT THE REST OF US AMERICAN’S ON NOTICE THAT THERE IS TO BE NO GOD—-IS THAT RIGHT??

  217. Muslim Son Of A White Trash Whore!

    Once again we are deafened by the roar of silence from the Republican majority in CONgress!

    What did it do to give the GOP both Houses of CONgress?

  218. No one has ever been offended and complained before…Put this ass clown in office and all the sudden half the nation is offended by everything, even something as stupid as a coffee cup. What next Obama? You going to take away our rights to breath because it might offend your Muslim ancestors? We have ppl trying to pass laws about walking dogs in public now because dogs offend Muslims. This isn’t the fucking middle east ppl. IMPEACH OBAMA!!! Arrest his ass for treason!!!

  219. It’s likely obama doesn’t know the background on the pledge. It did not come into being until 1892. It was authored by Francis Bellamy a defrocked Baptist minister from Boston who identified himself as a Christian Socialist. Bellamy was removed from the pulpit for espousing the view “Jesus was a socialist”. He was an outspoken advocate of a centralized government. The idea was to indoctrinate school children into the ideology of big government. The founding fathers would have been appalled by such a thing. Bellamy was also the cousin of Edward Bellamy author of the popular 1888 socialist fantasy “Looking Backward”. In the novel the main character was Julian West who falls asleep in 1887 and awakens in the year 2000 when socialist utopia is achieved. All industry is state owned, Soviet style, and everyone is conscripted into the military at age 21, is employed by the state for their entire lives, and retires at age 45. All workers earn the same income regardless of merit, performance, or skill. Just what muslim communist usurper obama and the communist democrat party demand. To top it off children in school use to give the Nazi style salute of the hand in the air with palm facing away. Then Hitler came to power in Germany and before long when people realized Hitler was not a good guy so this wasn’t too cool changed the Nazi style salute to hand over heart. More history publik skools don’t teach.

  220. This pretty much seals the deal on Killary. No way on earth the majority of Americans want more of the corrupt Democratic Party. The Clinton’s would finish us off by demanding we fly flags from every nation in schools or create a new one with a moon on it and UAE colors. Obama is the worst and most docile president in U.S history, hands down.

  221. Ovomit is the biggest piece of shit alive!! I despise this useless, waste of a life and will be so glad when we are rid of him!! Muslim traitor!!!

  222. NOOOOOO….TELL ME IT’S NOT SO! Somebody….STOP the MADNESS!
    T R A I T O R . . . EVILDOER!
    Why, is he not impeached? …for all the dumping he is doing on this great country.
    I’m confused!!!!

  223. Get that niger muslem out of our office. I pray Jesus will strike him down now. Lord forgive me but take this man out he is taking our country away from you.

  224. My son’s second-grade class performed on stage at the County Fair this year. They sang “God Bless America” and “You’re a Grand Ol’ Flag” and pledged allegiance. The crowd stood up and sang and pledged with them. I cried with pride for my town’s bold stance on this issue.

  225. Obama IS Effectively Trying To End Our Country From Being called the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, What do we call our country now,. I’LL ALWAYS BE AN AMERICAN, . I WANT the AMERICA I GREW up in BACK. OBAMA better practice up on his puckering skills, cause he can KISS my ROSY RED ASS if he thinks he can take that RIGHT away from ME. At most , After people say the PLEDGE of ALLEGIANCE, Give a minute for others to say aloud or silently what they want to say in peace, but the Pledge Of Allegiance comes First And Foremost. The Pledge is not about one Race or Religion cause this country was built on the backs of all race’s, colors, religion’s.The Pledge is about being Proud and Faithful to our country.The Pledge says Under God, it doesn’t say a specific GOD, whatever God you Worship; Think of Him or Her when you say the PLEDGE. OBAMA is completely going about this the WRONG WAY

    • 100% on the point “God” is what ever God you worship, and if you personally don’t want to say it don’t that is what freedom is all about. I would think anyone that lives in this country would be proud to say it because of the freedom they are allowed, and sometimes abuse in this country.

  226. I take it none of you even referenced this executive order to see what it said… or rather what it didn’t say. Do you just dive into anything that confirms your contempt? Facts unnecessary?
    I have a challenge. Do some research, and not on fringe websites, but some real research before repeating bullshit like this.

  227. What a traitor! Why is our government trying to take away all our beliefs & rights to say anything we want,FREEDOM OF SPEECH! They should all wipe the smiles off their face.He is making us more & more of a Muslim nation.

  228. It’s all part of “divide and conquer”. Get everyone and everything disputed, and argued over. Take away any sense of cohesion left in America, and it will fall. Look around you and see the division…..

  229. Obummer your traderous piece of shit. You use that damn pen to do whatever you want to do. I hope your ass gets locked up in the cell next Killary. She’s a lying piece of shit too. Hope you both fry for your treason.

  230. obama signing an executive order to ban the pledge of allegiance is an outrage! he’s at it again. using his power of executive order to further his agenda. i cannot accept that this is what the majority of american’s want. he is the most unpatriotic, non-christian & dangerous president in our history. hillary would be even more dangerous for our christian nation. they are the enemies. he’s a terror of a sneaky kind. a wolf in sheep’s clothing. he’s an abomination to God. he can’t leave office soon enough!

  231. this is an outrage! he’s at it again. using his power of executive order to further his agenda. i cannot accept that this is what the majority of american’s want. he is the most unpatriotic, non-christian & dangerous president in our history. hillary would be even more dangerous for our christian nation. they are the enemies. he’s a terror of a sneaky kind. a wolf in sheep’s clothing. he’s an abomination to God. he can’t leave office soon enough!

  232. I have said the pledge ever since I can remember, this decision does not make sense. Everything for the American people seems to be taken away one way or another. It’s sad because America should have something left for America. Everything America stands for is not ours anymore. The people of many cultures and races seem to overtake our country. As an American I struggle to make ends meet but yet I do it legally. We tend to take care of everyones problems and giving our hard earned money away just so people that do not respect America can live better in America. I feel if our country is a country you cannot respect than by all means get the hell out and go back to where you belong instead of leeching on America. You came here because of America’s opportunities and yet complain about everything…ridiculous. President Obama made a big mistake by showing weakness and signing that stupid law.

  233. Why do American’s have to change our way of life too make others feel comfortable! Obama is not a religious person! I think a president EXECUTIVE ORDER should have a limit! Never will I vote for a democratic again! I am an independent voter THE democratic party HAS LOST ME FOR GOOD because of Obama’s EXECUTIVE ORDER ! WE THE PEOPLE ARE FOOLS FOR VOTING FOR OBAMA HE IS A LIAR!
