OBAMA USES OWN MONEY TO OPEN MUSLIM MUSEUM AMID GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
National Report | 10/03/2013
Washington, DC — WHILE UP TO 800,000 FEDERAL WORKERS FACED LIFE WITHOUT A PAYCHECK AS DAY TWO OF THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN KICKED IN, PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE TO ANNOUNCE THAT HE IS USING HIS OWN MONEY TO OPEN THE FEDERALLY FUNDED INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM OF MUSLIM CULTURES.
“During this shutdown, people will have to deal with some of their favorite parks and museums being closed,” Obama told reporters. “Just keep in mind, they will always be there. The Grand Canyon and the Smithsonian are not going anywhere.” Obama continued, “THE INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM OF MUSLIM CULTURES IS SACRED. THAT IS WHY I HAVE TAKEN IT UPON MYSELF TO USE MY OWN PERSONAL FUNDS TO RE-OPEN THIS HISTORIC PIECE OF AMERICAN CULTURE.”
The International Museum of Muslim Cultures closed its doors Tuesday as parts of the federal government shut down after Congress failed to reach an agreement on spending. On Monday, the Senate rejected the latest budget proposal from the House of Representatives. The fiscal standoff stems in large part from Republican attempts to block President Obama’s healthcare initiative.
“THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY DESERVES OUR FULL ACCEPTANCE AND RESPECT,” OBAMA SAID. “WE HAVE KILLED MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS OVERSEAS SINCE THE SEPTEMBER 11TH ATTACKS. THEY ARE NOT ALL BAD. IN FACT MOST OF THEM ARE GOOD. SO DURING THIS SHUTDOWN, NOW IS A GREAT TIME TO LEARN ABOUT THE FAITH OF ISLAM. I ENCOURAGE ALL OF YOU TO CELEBRATE THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY, THE ‘SUNNAH’ AND THE MAGIC OF THE ‘QURAN’. ALL OF THIS CAN BE FOUND AT THE NEWLY RE-OPENED INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM OF MUSLIM CULTURES.”
Khaled Matei who is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood‘s Freedom and Justice Party told CNN he is pleased with Obama and his actions. “I SPOKE WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA BY TELEPHONE YESTERDAY AND PERSONALLY THANKED HIM FOR WHAT HE IS DOING FOR THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY,” MATEI SAID. “THIS IS DEFINITELY A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION I EXPLAINED TO HIM. PRAISE ALLAH.”
Obama finished the press CONFERENCE EXPLAINING TO REPORTERS HOW THRILLED HE IS TO SEE THE MUSEUM OPEN AGAIN. “FOLKS, THIS IS A TIME TO FOCUS ON THINGS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO US IN AMERICA. SURE, WE WOULD ALL LIKE TO SEE THE GOVERNMENT OPEN, IT JUST IS NOT THAT SIMPLE. WHAT IS SIMPLE IS ME FUNDING THE INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM OF MUSLIM CULTURES SO THAT IT CAN STAY OPEN DURING THIS HORRIBLE TIME IN OUR NATION’S HISTORY, ALL THANKS TO THE ECHO CHAMBER WHICH IS CALLED THE TEA PARTY.”
The International Museum of Muslim Cultures is located at 201 E Pascagoula Street in Jackson, Mississippi. It is open Tuesday – Friday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. THE MUSEUM IS CLOSED FRIDAY FROM 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM IN OBSERVANCE OF THE JUMAH PRAYER.

True dickw3939 lol,
These people have no clue what Barry Soetoro is doing to this country I believe he will let the country default by design trying to win back the house in 2014 in his little pea brain?not realizing what grave consequences that will cause or rather don't care to get his way....It's disgusting,seems like he'd throw the U.S under the bus for political reasons goes to show what a POS leader this joker is.If I were him I sure the hell wouldn't be out in public ordering lunch as if nothing is going on with all the turmoil?....I think he has a death wish?..........LMAO...JMO
Get real the democrats did not shut down the government. The GOP. has no leadership AND CANNOT ACCEPT DEFEAT they will loose more and more support The republicans will lose more than the democrats with this stupid move.
Jack, BHO doesn't care one wit about this country. His ego is too big to allow him to sit down at a negotiating table. He is forcing through a health bill that is not ready for prime time just as he was not ready when he was elected in 2008. For God's sake in didn't even know how many states there were in the union. The electorate was so disenchanted with GWB that BHO won by default. For this the left wing is so eternally grateful to the "old guard" of the GOP that they even support them in their intraparty squabble with the GOP freshman senator Constitutionalists. BHO has publicly stated many times that he is going to fundamentally change this country and his drones on this MB are working to help him do it. Now I don't know about you, but I think something like that is above the pay level of a "community organizer" which was the bulk of his experience. Under his office this country is slowly sinking into an abyss. It is time for all hose who believe in our Constitution and Bill of Rights to stand up and say "hell no." All in MHO..
