Obama: "Biden and Bernie Have the Same Goals"

In an interview with the far-Left "New Yorker" magazine, Barack Obama, who is currently running the Democrat Party, said, "If you look at Joe Biden's goals and Bernie Sander's goals, they're not that different, from a forty-thousand-foot level."

Esquire Magazine says, yes, Obama endorsed Biden, but he "also endorsed a new Democrat Party."

With the election looming, biblical Christians and conservatives better have a clear understanding of the seismic cultural shift that looms should the Left seize control of the culture and the country.

Be informed, not misled.

The far-left New Yorker story, written to puff the Democrat agenda, admits that the so-called "progressive" movement has moved the Democrat Party much further left in the past couple of years.

Far-left Esquire Magazine agrees. In fact, they say Obama's endorsement of Biden was more a reasoned "admission" that the Democrats "have moved so far past the politics that elected him in 2008...that Joe has what is the most progressive platform of any major-party nominee in history...Obama endorsed Biden...but he also endorsed other things," they say.

While the left celebrates and anticipates, conservatives and Christians should be informed, because the secular and the so-called "Christian" left is aligned with a far-left political party, a far-left news media who long ago forsook any pretense of fair, honest or balanced reporting of news---all becoming nothing more than an oracle of the far-Left.

Obama: "Joe Biden could still (expletive) things up." 

That quote was first reported in January, in the New York Times, but revisited in a POLITICO story last week recalling how Obama supported Hillary, not Biden in 2016, even though Biden desperately wanted to run.

In fact, Joe Biden wrote in his memoir after leaving office that Obama was "not encouraging" about him running against Hillary in 2016. Biden wrote, "I knew a number of the president's former staffers, and even a few current ones, were putting their finger on the scale in favor of Hillary."

The New York Times detailed that Obama believed Biden should not run in 2020, but later decided to become involved in his campaign.

In March 2019, Obama asked the Biden team for a briefing on the state of the campaign from top Biden aides.

"Win or lose," Obama told Biden's people, "They needed to make sure Mr. Biden did not 'embarrass himself' or 'damage his [Obama's] legacy' during the campaign."

How would Bernie, a confirmed secular socialist and Biden, a so-called "devout" Catholic share the same goals for America?

In Biden's 2008 book, "Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics," he wrote that his life was shaped by his "Catholic faith."

Bernie, who is Jewish, has been called an "atheist" but claims he's not. He says he has his own "version" of religion, but is not a part of any organized religion.

He told late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel, who asked if he believed in God, "I am what I am. And what I believe in, and what my spiritually is about, is that we're all in this together."

In his book, Biden says

"I'm as much a cultural Catholic as I am a theological Catholic. My idea of self, of family, of community of the wider world comes straight from my religion. It's not so much the Bible, the beatitudes, the Ten Commandments, the sacraments, or the prayer I learned. It's the culture.

In denying he was an atheist, Bernie told the New York Post that he doesn't call himself an atheist. The way he puts it is that he isn't actively involved in organized religion. He says he believes in God, just not in a traditional way. He says, "My religion is that all of us are connected, all of life is connected and we are all in this together."


While Bernie claims no religious identity, Biden claims to be a deeply devout Catholic. Bernie's more honest than Biden, but neither are guided by any source of absolute values---like God's Word.

In Biden's case, he admits that his self-identity was created by the culture of the Catholic Church.

Bernie sometimes tells the story of him living in an Israeli secular, socialist kibbutz as a guest in 1963. He says that experience gave him a clear view of the Soviet Union as a model. He says they even flew the red flag at outdoor events. He has said, "It was there that I saw and experienced for myself many of the progressive values upon which Israel was founded."

Biden says his identity and value system is drawn from the nuns and the Catholic culture, not necessarily from the Bible.

Both Bernie and Biden have based their worldview on non-biblical, evolving, changing humanistic values.

From socialism to abortion; from celebrating homosexuality to accepting eastern mysticism, it all blends when conceived in the tent of human secularism.

What biblical believers, particularly the 6-7 million who voted for Obama and Hillary, must decide is whether Bernie's and Biden's "goals" are God's goals for America.

And is their America, the America you want your children and grandchildren to grow up in?
