Candidate Obama’s 57 States “Gaffe” a message?

 By Jerry Todd, staff writer

  During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Barack Obama made a briefly reported “gaffe” where he said he’d been in “all 57 states and had one to go, the 58th. It got a laugh from most Republicans and was buried by the mainstream media. Was our President sending a signal to folks who might interpret as intended? Maybe it was just a coincidence, but it took me 4 years for it to click. (REF: Media Research Council – NY Times Watch, 11/15/2011 or Google it) Jump ahead to the 2012 Republican primaries when Rick Perry had a momentary lapse and couldn’t remember that the Energy Department was one of three agencies he wanted eliminated. The press had a field day – though not as bad as Dan Quayle’s using an alternate spelling of tomato (tomatoe) – both gaffes sufficient to destroy their political reputations by the pens of mockers and the wagging tongues of pundits. Now to the first week of June 2012 when I attended a talk by John Guandolo at a patriotic ACT! For America veteran’s dinner.

Guandolo is an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood with an enviable service record from the Naval Academy, Marines, Army Ranger School to the Washington Office of the FBI – Counterterrorism Unit. He currently has a security company that advises and trains police, military and governmental agencies.

We learned the depths of infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood (Al Qaeda is actually a subset) into all aspects of American society – including cutting off any (even Fox) news that might expose their agenda. He meticulously outlined the names of the perpetrators (dead and alive) and myriad universities, departments of government and military the MB has infiltrated. He flashed on the screen – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It has 57 member states! Two of us asked, “Is that Obama’s 57 states we thought was a gaffe in 2008?” Guandolo responded, “You said it, I didn’t” and went on. We are all familiar with Obama’s sympathies toward, if not belief in, Islam and his confrontations with Christian doctrine and sensitivities. Was his “57 States” remark a signal that all was well in the world of Sharia where its 58th member isn’t too far from joining its brethren? He also stated there is not one thing the MB infects societies with that does not comply with Sharia, including its American incursions. Military and government officials at all levels take a solemn oath to “protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Sharia and the Constitution cannot co-exist. Period! Are Obama officials in the Military, Homeland Security, HEW and attendant czars simply useful idiots or co-conspirators? Treason by default? Guandolo showed the overriding element that allows the whole MB program to work is Political Correctness – which I define as “the manifestation of the spirit of Antichrist!” How appropriate.

  1. Just a small thing easily verified with a few keystrokes, the word, Dan Quayle instance, was "potato" ("potatoe"). As the left is ever ready to attack us for anything I think it would be good for us to be as correct in verifiable facts as we can be — especially ones that are very simple.

  2. I'm not so sure that Obama using the # 57 was a "gaffe"….I think he knew EXACTLY what he was talking about, but didn't want US to know. QUESTION:

    How many NON-States or other territories are there in the US? Could there be 7?

    1. District of Columbia;
    2. Puerto Rico;
    3. Guam;
    4. US Marshall Islands….

    Are there others that I have forgotten about?

    Now imagine ea & everyone of these being given Statehood (something to which even Rick Santorum isn't even opposed to, by his previous comments). Would it be safe to say that EVERY one of them would elect 14 (!!!) progressive/neo-Marxists into the Senate & 7 more into the House?

    Imagine how THAT would "transform America" towards Obama's dreams from him & his father. Think about it!

    It's time to start a new ANTI-Statehood movement started, is it not (or am I being paranoid)?

  3. It took you that long to figure this out???? I , and others said the same thing at the time!!!!!!!

    1. 'Fraid so! It didn't seem to matter then. I've put the following 60 year old statement in books I've written since 2007:
      "At the present time, the hatred of the Islamic countries toward the West has become hatred against Christianity itself. Statesmen are now taking it into account that there is a grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return on a broad scale, and with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power. Muslim writers say, "When the locust swarms darken vast countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words, "We are God's host, each of us has 99 eggs, and if we had 100, we should lay waste to the world and all that is in it."

      I believe the source was the late Bishop Fulton J. Sheen. It was given me our dear friend, the late Bishop John R. Sheets, SJ (Google him) Both men were brilliant and saintly with not an ounce of guile for any, including Muslims.

      1. toddyo…how I DO remember Bishop Fulton J Sheen's television program…how he entered the 'set' through a doorway at the the back…and with swirling robes and satin 'beanie' atop his head he would head to the chalk board….much as Glenn Beck does today
