Biden: What to Expect

January 19, 2021

James F. Gauss

January 18, 2021

NOTE: Be sure to watch the hopeful video at the end of this post.

This election has been nothing short of a coup d’état—a full and complete take-over of America.  This is not hyperbole, this is reality.  Don’t think so?  Read on.

Democrats delightedly screech: “Biden won! Get over it!”  How ironic and deplorable.  They still have not gotten over Trump’s 2016 election win.  They spent every day and every hour harassing, attacking, convicting the man of the people, and his family.  They were and are despicable human beings (but redeemable).

Was America given one last chance to turn from its wicked ways through the presidency of Donald Trump?  Perhaps.  Time will tell, but will not be far off.  The Democratic rumblings throughout his presidency and personal assaults upon him, his family and those that support him, provided clear indication of the Democratic intent for America.  Early proclamations from the presumed Biden administration and gleeful Democratic politicians affirms that they seek full revenge against Trump and his followers.  They will have no restrictions; no barriers.  They will have the law, military, media, the UN and every evil force at their command.

Unity? Democrats have never been about unity.  They are about the destruction of the Republic.  Unity for Democrats means destroying the opposition. Throughout the Obama and Trump Administrations, Democratic law makers/legislators proved one thing: they are obnoxious, vile members of Congress.  Whenever someone was giving testimony before them, they rudely cut the person’s testimony off and viciously attacked their credibility if they were not getting the responses they wanted.  During the Trump years the Democrats accomplished nothing except to continually and vivaciously attack President Trump and his family.

During his eight years in office, Mr. Obama was the Divider-in-Chief.  He never missed an opportunity to cause division between whites and people of color.  Between the rich and the middle and lower income.  Between Christians and all others.  He hated America then and he still hates what America stands for as a constitutional republic.

The laundry list of what Democrats plan to do to destroy America is way too long to fully discuss here in detail.  So, I will just have to settle for listing them as the Democrats and Joe Biden have expressed their desires and plans.  The list is not exhaustive—unfortunately.

Politics.  Democrats want to dominate the country’s politics at the federal, state and local levels.  They are not looking for compromise through valued discussion.  It’s their way or the highway.  They will ruthlessly demean, ridicule and castigate any dissenters.  It is tyrannical rule at its finest.

Social Media.  They want total control of social media and to purge all conservatives, Christians and non-conformers from any such platform.  To that extent, Biden has already appointed a couple of leftist social media bigwigs to his cabinet.

News Media.  The majority of the news media has been in the Democrats’ hip pocket for a long time.  It just became abundantly clear under President Trump how bad it was.  Now, the venerated, conservative darling, Fox News, has fallen victim to the Democratic swamp creatures. Will there be any place left for conservative citizens to get true news? Democrats not only want total control of the media, they want non-Democrats to be “re-educated” to their truth.  Smell communism, folks?

Financial.  They want to continue to destroy America’s financial structure.  Granted, America is already fundamentally bankrupt.  However, nothing in the Biden agenda will alleviate America’s insurmountable debt, only exasperate it. Under the Biden team, the doors to the Federal sweet shop will be swung wide open with goodies for all, especially their corporate cronies and favorite foreigners. Even some of his leftist observers are already saying that his trillions in planned spending will lead to millions being unemployed.  Yet, his Democrat buddies are squealing for more.  It’s too little, they say.  It needs to gargantuan; mammoth; gigantic.

Deep State/Democratic Tyrannical/Marxist Agenda:

  • Destroy gun rights & 2nd Amendment.  Democrats hate guns more than the criminals that use them.
  • Destroy the Bill of Rights.  There’s nothing here that is cherished by the Democrats.
  • Eliminate the Electoral College.  This has been their objective ever since whiney Hillary lost.  They can continue to fraudulently manipulate the popular vote.  The Electoral College, not so much.  They will continue to push for mail-in voting and other non-personal methods to secure their spurious elections.
  • Destroy America’s fossil fuel industry and leadership.  Under President Trump, America, for the first time in many decades, became energy independent.  Democrats want to destroy that lofty achievement.
  • Unlimited immigration & open borders.  Immigrants from all over are already marching toward our southern border by the tens of thousands (criminals and terrorists included).  Will a Biden Administration tear down Trump’s wall?  Will their hatred of Trump blind them to the safety of American citizens?
  • Non-citizens allowed to vote.  On day 1 of the Biden Administration, Biden has pledged to speed up the citizenship path for eleven million illegal immigrants already in the United States.
  • Sexual perversion and education of America’s children.  Biden has made it clear that he will push forward the Democratic godless LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and/or Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual and/or Ally) agenda—just in case you were wondering what the letters stand for.
  • Destroying free speech.  Democrats and their perverted, evil allies have made it clear, they do not want to hear from anyone who has an opposing view.  Big Tech and the Democrats want to completely shut down the conservative point of view. Not only that, they want to punish those who disagree with them. You either embrace their Marxist viewpoint or you shut up or risk being harassed or imprisoned.  Sounds fair. Welcome to Sino-America, the new puppet country of China.
  • Suppressing churches and their Biblical preaching.  During COVID-19, Democrats saw how easy it was to silence churches and synagogues.  They will do it again, unless pastors boldly take a stand.
  • Wasting trillions on the false “Green New Deal.”  One of the most ridiculous false and misleading narratives of the Democrats is the idea that man can control the climate of the world.  You want to control CO2 emissions?  Stop driving your limos and flying on private jets everywhere.  Plant more trees and other CO2 sucking green plants.  Get over your god-complex.  You too, Mr. Gates.  Oh, and rejoining the Paris Climate Accord in order to throw trillions of taxpayer dollars into the abyss.
  • Open doors for America’s enemies; soft on China, Russia, Iran, et al.  Trump got tough on America’s enemies—the toughest since World War II—and our enemies hated him for it.  Now their licking their chops at the prospects of a Biden crime syndicate ruling the country where, for a price, anything will be for sale. Biden will renew the dangerous Iranian deal.
  • Putting Muslims in leadership.  Biden has vowed, just like his ventriloquist, Obama, to put more Muslims in his Administration—preferably Muslim Brotherhood types, no doubt.
  • Teach Islam in public schools.  Biden is on record in saying that he wants Islam taught in all public schools.  Will that be before or after the class on Christianity and Judaism?
  • Provide an open door to Islamic terrorism.  With the Democrats history, both past and current, on crime and terrorists, will terrorists (Islamic and others) now have a walk in the park? Remember, Obama had all Federal manuals and communications stripped of any terms critical of Islam.  Biden sat under his Islamic tutelage for eight years.
  • Socialized medicine and deteriorating health care.  COVID, no doubt, will be the open door to re-introduce to Americans the necessity of socialized medicine and health care.  Trump vehemently opposed it and worked at abolishing all vestiges of it. Obama/Biden cannot wait to slam it down the collective throats of Americans once again.  What will you do if THE vaccine becomes mandatory?  No buying; no selling; no travelling unless you comply.
  • Destroy the Trump economy.  Democrats are so insane with their hatred of Trump (Trump Derangement Syndrome is real), that they want to destroy everything he did, no matter how beneficial to the country and its citizens.  Remember Trump’s full employment economy; minority enterprise zones, etc.  What COVID did not destroy, the Democrats will. It will all evaporate.
  • Packing the Supreme Court by adding more justices.  Democrats are already putting pressure on an aging conservative Supreme Court jurist to retire so they can appoint one of their Marxist breed.  The ultimate dream is to install Marxist judges across America & the Supreme Court.  They want to increase the number of jurists on the U.S. Supreme Court and turn it viciously radical and anti-Constitution.
  • Weaken law enforcement and the military.  Remember the “Defund the Police” movement during the Floyd riots?  It is far from dead.  Democrats across America will rekindle the flame.
  • Permanent mask wearing, social distancing and destroying of America’s social fabric. When was the last time you saw a smiling face in town or at your local store? Remember when the fake doctor Fauci said masking up would be temporary? Well, it’s almost a year and no end in sight.  In fact, Biden has pledged to continue the ruse at least for another 100 days.  Once proud Americans have become one big herd of docile sheep.  BAAAAAD!
  • Further lockdowns and destruction of small business.  Think the lockdowns have ceased?  I fear not.  Democrats know a good crisis when they see it.  They scared people witless. That’s how they won the election.  Well, in addition to fraudulent voting.
  • Continue to destroy millions of babies and support it worldwide.  The Biggy that God will never forgive America for unless we repent and stop it.  Democrats have yet to see a baby not worth snuffing out before and after they are born.
  • Destroy rural America. Country folk are hard to impress, oppress and control.  So, just destroy their social fabric, faith and businesses.  That will do it.
  • Oppression and arrests of Conservatives.  As if censoring the free speech of conservative Americans is not enough, some Democrats want them punished or sent to re-education camps (no lie) for having the audacity to vote against the shyster Democratic machine.
  • Further divide America. Through continued and incessant false racial narratives, accusations and hyperbole, the Democrats will continue to keep tightening their thumb screws on America’s racial relations.  Not since the days of Selma have racial tensions been so high, and we have Obama and his hate-filled ilk to thank.  Oh, but now they can divide Americans between the “Thoughtfully-concerned-for-my-fellow-American” mask wearer and the hateful, rebellious dregs of society, the dreaded non-mask wearer.
  • Destroy American history. Thanks to the socialist Democrats, true American history is not taught in our public schools.  Permitting the further destruction of America’s history and historical statues and monuments will be a top agenda item to appease their BLM and Antifa (fascist) cohorts.  Democrats are even talking about forcing their radical educational agenda on private religious schools.
  • Remove all reference to God from our Pledge, court houses, schools, etc. There’s no question that the majority of Democrats seem to despise God. Even the pastors they bring in to pray in the rotunda mock God with a recent pastor ending his prayer with “Amen and awomen” to race reviews by Democrats.
  • Totally control the media and Big Tech.  The Democratic/Marxist dream child is one where no one has an idea or opinion but them. No freedom of the press or Internet.  No freedom of expression on any level.
  • Assuring that Republicans will not be elected again.  In addition to trying to destroy President Trump’s political future and that of other top GOP members, the Democrats are hot to give DC, Puerto Rico, and maybe other U.S. protectorates seats in Congress.  That way they hope to ensure there will never be another Republican president or Congress.
  • Coddle America’s enemies at home and abroad.  Pay close attention. Protect yourself and family.
  • Riddle the U.S. Constitution until it is worthless and unrecognizable. Remember, under the Obama Administration, Democrats claimed that the U.S. Constitution was “fluid”, ready to be manipulated as seen fit by them.

The list is almost endless, but I will stop here so you do not get a migraine.  Perhaps a book should be forthcoming.

Americans, what were you thinking when you voted for Biden?  It would appear you were not thinking about the future of your country.

Very Important. Needless to say, pray fervently for America.  Pray for repentance and revival in the Church in America.  For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17).  And, yes, pray for Biden and all the hate-filled, despotic members of Congress as well as those in your state.  Just because they and their actions are despicable, does not mean that we do not pray for them—for their conversion to the truth of God’s Word; that they resist being pawns of the evil one; that the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ be revealed to them.  Can I get an “Amen”?

One more thing.  Take the time to watch this insightful video with Amir Tsarfati and Jack Hibbs.  If you do not know Christ as your Lord and Savior, now is the time.

Biden or Trump?

July 28, 2020

James F. Gauss

July 28, 2020

A reader (I’ll call him, “George”) responded to my blog post on Reason #3 to NEVER Vote for a Democrat: Racism, and wrote: I’ve never voted for a party platform, preferring to vote for the person, their views, their character, their moral backbone, their examples of being truthful over political correctness. He went on to state that the choice between Clinton and Trump in 2016 was a difficult one because neither candidate met his character criteria. In the end, he voted for trump because of his stance (platform) “on Israel, abortion and nominating conservative judges to the courts.” Despite President Trump’s fulfillment of this reader’s hopes and much more, he now says he cannot and will not vote for Trump because of his “narcissism, self-absorption, moral deficiency, lying, Tweet fest name calling, and mental ineptitude. . . . His handling of this current pandemic is abhorrent, let alone the racial injustices and demonstrations.”

So, what is George’s choice in the upcoming election? He acknowledges that Joe Biden “is too old and I don’t like many of the things he supports. Yet, Biden is definitely better than Trump’s . . . .” So, with George’s perception of Trump’s character flaws, he would rather vote for Biden’s platform that he does not like. Strange thinking, but unfortunately, not unlike so many voters who cannot get beyond judging Trump solely on his character.

I intended to respond with a clarifying comment of my own, but realized that my response would be too long and better expressed more completely in another blog for a wider audience.

Character vs. Platform. I can certainly understand George’s concerns about President Trump’s character flaws. I had similar reservations right up until two weeks before the 2016 presidential election. I still believe, that in a personal context, President Trump may not be the type of person that would be on my BFF list (few people are—I’m very picky). But, then I reflect on the people of the Bible that God chose to be leaders for His cause, and, other than Jesus, they all had character flaws—some extremely severe, but God used them anyway. Does Donald J. Trump have character flaws and a bag of sins? Absolutely! But don’t we all, unless we confess our sins to God, repent and seek His forgiveness. However, being human, there is not one of us that is truly sin-free. We must constantly keep coming before the Lord in confession that leads unto repentance and forgiveness.

In American history, there are a scant few people who exhibited both godly character and true leadership. At the presidential level, the last person that I voted for that had a reasonable semblance of both, was Ronald Reagan. So, although this blog commentator judges Trump on the content of his character, but not Biden (even though he does not agree with Biden’s political agenda and principles), he chooses to reject Trump. In an imperfect world, I decided, when it comes to politics, I must choose platform over character. For me, although I have not voted Democrat for almost 40 years, the Democratic Party abandoned godly principles a long time ago. Even the Democratic faithful are waking up to that reality and the discerning among them understand that the Democratic Party and its leaders are delusional and morally bankrupt. On May 26, 2018, for instance, Brandon Straka, a Democratic voter became incensed with the Democrats deplorable platform and founded the WalkAway Campaign, which encourages the disillusioned Democratic voter to “walk away” from the Party and join the Republican effort. To date, over 338,000 former Democratic voters have done just that. In the last full week of July, 2020, Straka reported on Fox News that over 86,000 joined the campaign.

However, while George focuses on character to make his political decision, he is errant on a number of Trump’s principal goals that mimics the liberal media’s obsession with destroying Trump’s accomplishments and agenda since he announced his presidential run. (As an aside, the fact that the media is so obsessed with destroying Trump and refuses to give him any credit for anything, should be a signal to any rational person, that it is not Trump’s character that the political left and the Democrats are concerned about, but it is his Democratic-dismantling of their wayward and anti-American platform of Marxist-socialism). With daily 24/7 attacks from every conceivable source—hundreds a day—how would you respond? Especially if they were attacking your family and friends and endangering their lives with false and salacious accusations. But, he should stay off Twitter, you say. When absolutely every media outlet—newspaper, radio, TV, Internet (Facebook, Google, et al), except a handful of conservative ones, attack him every minute of every day, what outlet of defense does Trump have to defend himself? What would you do? Remain silent and passive?

Here’s the deal on Trump’s character from my perspective and experience. He’s a fighter; a politically incorrect brawler. He’s not a namby-pamby politician. Unlike most Democrats in Congress, he’s a patriot and loves America. He’ll do anything to defend it and the American people. I grew up in New Jersey and as a teenager and young adult I ventured into New York City many times, mostly to the ballparks (NYC was still home to the Dodgers, Giants and Yankees). Even back in the 1950s and 1960s, New Yorkers had the reputation of being tactless, blunt, in-your-face, crude and always telling you exactly what they thought about anything, including you. Trump is, of course, a New Yorker. I am not saying that excuses his perceived character flaws, it just might explain them. Years ago, we moved to what we thought was the peaceful, conservative Midwest state of Minnesota. Minnesotans pride themselves on “Minnesota Nice.” It drives Easterners crazy. It seems one never knows exactly what a born and raised Minnesotan really thinks or means. In retrospect, I will take the bluntness and straight-talking truth of a New Yorker over the less than genuine “Minnesota Nice” persona that is far too often fake.

So, what about character vs. platform? Is it Trump or is it Biden? I’m going to go right to the heart of one of the issues that apparently sticks in the craw of George and other anti-Trumpers: the accusation that Trump is a racist or is responsible for “racial injustices.” Perhaps, too much liberal news, or failure to do diligent research? Either way, I already thoroughly dealt with the racist history of the Democratic Party and its leaders in Reason #3, and its continuance today. But let me address the accusation of Trump’s “racism.”

Is Trump a Racist? In a retort to a Black radio talk show host, Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” Now, that IS racist! The truth about Biden? He bends a knee to the violent, Marxist Black Lives Matter organization that is bent on destroying America, but ignores the millions of Black babies aborted; the Black slums that Democratic mayors run into the ground; the need for school choice vouchers for Black students so they can get out of the hellhole inner city schools that Democrats are destroying, etc. Biden and Obama had eight years to improve the lot of Blacks in America and did nothing but dole out goody bags. Now, that IS racist!

In his first year as President, Trump created the White House Opportunity and Revitalization Council, headed up by Executive Director Scott Turner (I hate saying this, but it’s necessary for all things racist in a Democrat’s mind, but Scott is Black, Negro, African-American. Otherwise, to normal Americans, he is  just one qualified guy who knows what he is doing and cares about those in economic stress). Under Turner’s direction, the WHORC has established 8,764 “opportunity zones” nominated by governors of all 50 states. Now that’s NOT racist!

These “zones” represent the lives of 35 million Americans (mostly minorities of color) living in poverty, low income and subjected to higher crime. Turner stated that the Council was charged with answering the question: “What can be done to lift up our most vulnerable and stressed communities . . . to create new jobs, new businesses, better housing, retail . . .” Now that’s NOT racist!

If you have not heard about this unique Trump initiative, it would be no surprise. Don’t expect the Trump-hating media to tell you about it, or any of the other outstanding Trump accomplishments. However, the infamous Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib, have heard about it. They want to defund it. Now, that IS racist!

In less than three years, President Trump has, through economic reforms, greatly improved the living conditions and opportunities for Blacks and Hispanics, resulting in the lowest unemployment rate for both demographics since employment statistics have been kept. Now that’s NOT racist!

In December, 2019, Trump promoted and signed a Historic Black College & University bill providing $250 million per year in support of those institutions. Now, that’s NOT racism! Under the leadership of President Trump and the Direction of Ben Carson, Secretary of HUD, the Trump administration dealt with and resolved a back log of over 22 thousand fair housing complaints left unaddressed by the Obama administration. Now, that’s NOT racism!

The cries and accusations of racism against President Trump by the Democrats, liberal media and their ilk are proven false, but few anti-Trumpers will take the time and energy to research the facts. It’s easier just to proclaim “racist” from one’s armchair or be brain-numbed by CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC or another snooze outlet masquerading as a news network.

However, Black and Hispanic America are waking up and catching on to the fallacious plots of the leftists. When Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter in a landslide (51-41%) in 1980, he did so with only 10% of the Black vote, while Carter garnered 86%. Recently, the liberal, lying Washington Post proclaimed that 92% of Blacks favor Biden for President. That is a strong contradiction to multiple other sources that have reported that Trump’s Black support has skyrocketed from 8% on Election Day in 2016, to over 40% today. Trump’s Hispanic support continues to grow and was last reported at 34%.

Now you know why the Democrats and their media shills are pulling out all the stops to destroy Trump before the election. Democrats are terrified about the election. They know they do not have a ghost of a chance in the November election with that kind of minority support for Trump. That support will continue to grow into Election Day as Democrats continue to prove to the minority communities that they do not care about law and order, Black lives or the survival of minority communities throughout the United States. On top of that, they have a candidate that often does not know what state or city he’s in, what day it is or what office he is running for in 2020.

Trump Accomplishments. George, you drone on about your perceived image of Trump and his “narcissism, self-absorption, moral deficiency, lying, Tweet fest name calling, and mental ineptitude. . . .” like some drunken sailor after watching CNN’s nightly Trump bashing. This character-deficient man, as you describe him, accomplished more positive things for the American people in his first 20 months (289, to be exact), then Obama did in eight years, or the Democrats have accomplished in several decades. Take some time and visit the list here: .

The Democratic Platform (in brief). No, I’m not going to waste my time to provide resources on most of this, that will come later. Most Trump supporters know this; non-Trumpers, do your own research. The Democrats’ platform in substance (they have no character):

  • An anti-God, anti-Christian agenda.
  • Anti-Bill of Rights; anti-American. Destroy the Second Amendment.
  • Anti-law enforcement and community protection; defund & disband the police.
  • Pro-Marxist, supporting BLM, Antifa, Nation of Islam and Muslim Brotherhood and funded by the same.
  • Pro-Abortion, killing of babies, including babies of color they claim to care about.
  • Anti-military, but pro-Russia, pro-China, pro-Iran.
  • Anti-capitalism. Pro-high taxes. Pro-Socialism. Destroy America’s energy sector.
  • Anti-Business, especially small businesses.
  • Support anti-American conglomerates like Google, Face Book, et al to control and restrict free speech that do not support the Democratic socialist narrative and agenda.
  • 200 years of racist policies and destruction of the Black community and families.
  • Anti-freedom of expression at any level.
  • Anti-family; anti-Marriage.
  • Pro-Perversion education of America’s youth.
  • Pro-Islam in America’s schools.
  • Anti-Jew; anti-Israel.
  • Pro-Open Borders & illegal immigration. Abolish I.C.E., i.e. illegal immigration law enforcement.
  • Pro-Voter fraud and elimination of citizen-only voting and elimination of the Electoral College and voter I.D.
  • Pro-Lying, deceit and fraud in trying to destroy a duly elected U.S. President.
  • Pro-Treason and insurrection.

But, go ahead, don’t vote for Trump, George, just because he does not fit your character mold. Would Abraham, David, Apostle Peter or Apostle Paul have met your standards? Probably not! After all, they were liars, deceivers, fornicators, murderers and denied Christ.

I will make it abundantly clear for George and other anti-Trumpers. President Trump is not a perfect man. But America is at war for its very survival. Voting for a Democrat at any level is voting for America’s destruction (go ahead, laugh) and the freedom you enjoy. You will be destroying America for your children and grandchildren—if America lasts that long.

Take the time to read the Black Lives Matter “Manifesto” which can be viewed here: Among other fascist realities, they want THE ABOLITION OF THE LEGISLATIVE AND JUDICIAL BRANCHES OF THE US GOVERNMENT. Another words, they want a fascist dictator. The Democrats will only be too happy to oblige.

Go to the BLM website at: and click on the “Donate” tab in the upper right corner. When the donation page opens, note that all donations go to “ActBlue.” What is ActBlue? ActBlue is a nonprofit technology organization established in June 2004 that enables left-leaning nonprofits, Democrats, and progressive groups to raise money on the Internet by providing them with online fundraising software. Its stated mission is to “empower small-dollar donors.” Interesting! The rioting, Marxist, terror group, Black Lives Matter, has actually been raising hundreds of millions for the Democratic machine and its candidates. These are the types of people the Democratic Party sleeps with on a daily basis—those who want to tear down America and destroy it forever. No wonder Democrats take foreign monies from Russia, China, Iran and anyone else who wants America DEAD.

George, what are you and your comrades thinking?

(Excerpted from Embracing the Anti-Christ: The Heresy of Interfaith Dialogue, by James F. Gauss. To be released in late July, 2020).

Muslims are the first victims of Islam. Many times I have observed in my travels in the Orient, that fanaticism comes from a small number of dangerous men who maintain the others in the practice of religion by terror. To liberate the Muslim from his religion is the best service that one can render him. 

Ernest Renan (1823-1892)

French expert on Semitic languages and civilizations, and biblical scholar.

There is a huge battle raging for the soul of the Church in America and the West and it is being waged against the Church by those within the Church. It is unfathomable to me, as someone who has studied Islam and talked to hundreds of Muslims and former Muslims since 2001, how many learned people, university scholars and church leaders have been so thoroughly duped by the ideology of Islam and by deceiving Islamic leaders.

Certainly, many, if not most, Christian leaders and church congregants who are participating in the interfaith dialogue with Muslims firmly believe they are following Christ’s dictate to “love thy neighbor.” However, they are being misguided by false premises in the understanding about Islam and its adherents. Islam is not like other world religious ideologies or doctrines of faith. Other faiths and their followers desire only the freedom and peace to practice their faith. The primary tenets of faith of Islam are quite different. Unlike other religious beliefs, Islam seeks world domination and demands of its followers to achieve that goal by any means necessary, including lying, deceit, infiltration, persecution and murder. While interfaithers’ goals of serving their Muslim neighbor may be genuine and an expression of Christ’s love, they appear oblivious to the weightier matters of the Gospel of Christ.

All over the world hundreds of thousands of Muslims are coming to a saving knowledge of Christ and leaving Islam and its tyrannical ideology. However, in the United States, where an estimated 3-6 million Muslims live and Christians still have the freedom to preach and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, there is very little conversion of Muslims to Christianity. Why is that so? In Islamic countries where freedom of religious expression is condemned; Bibles and prayer groups banned; preaching the Gospel is forbidden, Muslims, at the risk of persecution, imprisonment and death are choosing Christ as their Lord and Savior.

In 2018, Pew Research Center released two polls on Islam in America January 26 and April 17). In the one poll, of the Americans who were converting to Islam, a whopping 77 percent were raised as Christians. By contrast, in the other poll, Pew discovered that of those Muslims in America that left Islam, only 22 percent converted to Christianity. Why such a disparity? Islam, it would appear, is having a far greater influence and impact on Christians, than Christians and the Gospel message are having on Muslims.

The Two-prong Attack. Thanks to America’s worldwide unique Constitution, which includes the Bill of Rights, and America’s largely unbridled freedoms, Muslims have successfully infiltrated every aspect of American life: education (both primary and secondary), politics, law enforcement, military (including Homeland Security), America’s legal and judicial system and the Church. The latter, along with the driving forces of education, have become the second prong of Islam’s attack on American’s 300+ years of culture and Judeo-Christian foundations.

In most primary school districts in America, Islam has found fertile ground to promulgate its lies and deceptions and pollute the minds of America’s impressionable children—all with the blessings of school boards, school administrators and teachers, but usually without the explicit knowledge of parents. Muslim culture, beliefs and practices are being impressed upon America’s children, often starting in kindergarten, while textbooks used for history, civics, geography, social studies, etc. are heavily edited and ladened with favorable and proselytizing portrayals of Islam, while, at the same time, denigrating Christianity and Judaism.

As Muslims attempt to convert America’s youth from K through 12th grade and on into college, the Church has remained silent and neutralized. Although many Christian denominations train hundreds of missionaries to go abroad to minister to Muslims in far off lands, it appears that most churches see little need or urgency to reach Muslims in America with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Rather than share the Good News of Jesus with Muslims, most denominations seem to be content with embracing Muslims as “brothers” who share the same god and Abrahamic heritage. They just want to be “good neighbors” and maintain community harmony and cohesiveness. Never mind that the Muslims they claim to “love” are spiritually lost and condemned to hell without the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Those among the interfaith dialogue with Muslims movement chose to ignore or make excuses for 1400 years of Islamic history and barbarism. While Christianity has gone through a number of reform movements to cleanse itself of false doctrines and heresy and will continue to do so, Islam has never had a reform movement and never will. The Muslims of today still follow the same tenets of faith that their predecessors did fourteen centuries ago. For the basic beliefs of Islam to change would require its adherents to confess that Islam is a lie and a fabricated doctrine—not revealed by God, but created by man to dominate his neighbors, far and wide. True adherents to Islamic doctrine are taught and commanded not to adopt the culture and ways of their host country, but instead, are ordered to do everything possible to infiltrate, change and dominate the people and culture where they live until all is under their control for the glory of Allah.

. . . True believers in Jesus Christ and His unadulterated Gospel have been struggling to push back the powers of darkness since the first Christian believers gathered in the Upper Room in Jerusalem after Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection. For the most part, up through World War II, the Church in America was at the forefront of doing battle against evil. However, after the war-weary victories in Europe and the Far East in the mid-1940s it seemed that the Church fell back on its “laurels” and got fat and lazy and let down its guard and offensive thrust against those who sought to undermine its very foundations.

Over the last several decades—and likely much longer—America has become a culture of death and decadence. Why has America—once the center of Judeo-Christian principles and experience—degenerated into a wanton, hedonistic society? The reasons, from this author’s perspective are many, but a few glaring ones will be listed. . . .

Author note.  The book should be available in paperback format on Amazon in a couple of days.  My apologies to those of you (and I am one) who would prefer not to do business with Amazon.  I have looked at various Christian alternatives, but none are feasible for me at this time (too much money up front; restrictive editing or only they only want big names).   I am also considering an e-book version.  Amazon also offers worldwide distribution which is essential for this book and its message.

Please spread this information far and wide.  Not for my sake, but for the Church and the salvation of Muslims.

“In today’s ever charged torrent of religious and political unrest, it is becoming increasingly vital for the people of the world to understand the truth of both the religious and the geopolitical nature of Islam. The heart, purpose and vision of the Islamic system governed by a complete way of life known as Shari’ah is dangerously misunderstood and highly underestimated by the West. It has been that way for 1400 years, numbing the minds of people like a shot of Novocain before treating an abscessed tooth. This compendium, ‘Understanding Islam in the Light of Christianity’ by Dr. James Gauss, is a vital and valuable resource that will be called upon again and again. If you are a pastor, spiritual leader, governmental leader, business leader or simply a curious person with a sincere desire to understand the heart of both Islam and Christianity, get this book.”

Will There Ever be Peace in the Middle East?

February 6, 2020

I will bring them back to live in Jerusalem; they will be my people,
and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God.
Zechariah 8:8
(circ. 520-518 B.C.)


Author’s Note. With all the excitement attentive to President Trump’s “two state” solution for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, I am moved to re-post an article I wrote in 2002 for a now defunct website on why there will never be peace in the Middle East. Much of this post draws heavily upon that article and Chapter 3 of my book, Understanding Islam in the Light of Christianity.

First, a look at the biblical history as it applies to the Israelites, Arabs and Muslims. The best place to start is with the Old Testament story of Abraham, since all three groups claim Abraham as their biological “father.”

Abram (Abraham) Seeks an Heir. We can gain some insight into this generation old conflict between Muslims and the Jews; between Israel and the Arab nations by picking up the story in Genesis 16 where Abraham and his wife Sarah were first known as Abram and Sarai. Abram was 86 years old and Sarai had never bore him any children, yet God had promised Abram that he would have a male descendent who would bring forth descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven (Genesis 15:3-5).

Frustrated and impatient with the lack of God’s immediate fulfillment of His promise, Abram decided (with Sarai’s encouragement) to take matters into his own hands.

He took unto himself Hagar, Sarai’s Egyptian pagan maidservant, and she bore him a son.

And the Angel of the Lord said to her [Hagar]:

“Behold, you are with child, and you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael [viz., God shall hear], because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren” (Genesis 16:11-12, NKJV).

The Destiny of Ishmael and His Descendants. Several things should be noted at this point about Ishmael and his relationship to Abraham and Abraham’s God.

First, Abram chose to disbelieve God’s promised covenant with him and establish his own covenant by the flesh. Second, his partner in this fleshly covenant was the pagan, Hagar (meaning one who takes flight), the Egyptian. Third, it was God, not Abram, who chose the name of Ishmael for this son to be born outside of God’s chosen covenant with His people. Fourth, it was God who said at Ishmael’s conception, that he would “be a wild man;” and that “his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him.” At the same time “he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.”

It is important to note that the Hebrew word used for “wild” in the above verse means for one to be like a “wild ass” with no boundaries. The Hebrew word used for “hand” means the “open hand of power.” And who were Ishmael’s brethren? He had a Hebrew father, Abram, and a pagan Arabic mother, Hagar. His brethren at the time of his birth were both Jews and Arabs.

God’s Plan and Covenant. An estimated 2,500 years before the proclaimed arrival of Muhammad, the God of the Bible promised the Land of Canaan to Abraham and his descendants (c. 1918 B.C.). When Abram was 99 years old, he was still without a true heir by Sarai’s womb. God then spoke to Abram and made this covenant with him:

As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you. Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God. (Genesis 17:4-8, NKJV; author’s emphasis)

Fourteen years after the birth of Ishmael, God fulfilled His intended covenant with Abram (now Abraham) with the birth of Isaac to Sarah who was no longer called Sarai. God’s promise and covenant with Abraham was three-fold: 1). God promised to multiply Abraham and his descendants greatly (Genesis 17:2); 2). God promised that through Abraham all the nations on earth would be blessed (Genesis 18:18, 22:18) and 3). God promised to give Abraham and his descendants the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession (Genesis 17:8).

Hamas Covenant to Destroy Israel. Many wonder why Israel and the Palestinians or Israel and Hamas cannot just sit down together and “hammer” out a reasonable peace agreement that all concerned can feel good about and keep. A number of such agreements have been brokered over the years to no avail. Why?

The answer is quite simple: Hamas drafted a Covenant—supported by the majority of Palestinians—with an unending commitment to destroy Israel, no matter what it takes or how many innocent lives must be sacrificed. Although former U.S. Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, and other political leaders have often referred to Hamas as a “resistance movement,” the truth is, that Hamas and other Islamic terrorists are committed to unprovoked acts of aggression and violence toward Israel.

However, despite its clear violent nature and desire to exterminate Israel, in December, 2014, the General Court for the European Union ruled that Hamas should not be listed by the EU as a terrorist organization. Of course, Deputy Hamas Chief, Moussa Abu Marzouk, applauded the decision and stated, “The decision is a correction of a historical mistake the European Union had made. Hamas is a resistance movement and it has a natural right according to all international laws and standards to resist the occupation.”

The Hamas Covenant starts with a quote from surah 3:110-112:

You are the best nation that has been brought out for mankind. You command good and forbid evil and believe in Allah. If only the people of the Book [i.e., Jews and Christians] had believed, it would have been well for them. Some of them believe, but most of them are iniquitous. They will never be able to do you serious harm, they will only be an annoyance. If they fight you, they will turn their backs and flee, and will not be succored. Humiliation is their lot wherever they may be, except where they are saved from it by a bond with Allah or by a bond with men. They incurred upon themselves Allah’s wrath, and wretchedness is their lot, because they denied Allah’s signs and wrongfully killed the prophets, and because they disobeyed and transgressed.

Drafted on August 18, 1988, the Preamble to the Covenant of thirty-six articles offers this insight:

The covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) reveals its face, presents its identity, clarifies its stand, makes clear its aspiration, discusses its hopes, and calls out to help it and support it and to join its ranks, because our fight with the Jews is very extensive and very grave, and it requires all the sincere efforts. It is a step that must be followed by further steps; it is a brigade that must be reinforced by brigades upon brigades from the vast Islamic world, until the enemies are defeated and Allah’s victory is revealed.

The Preamble says it all, Hamas and other Islamic terrorist groups have no intention of pursuing peace with Israel. Once Israel is defeated they will turn their full attention toward other non-Islamic countries, principally the United States and Europe.

Article One of the Covenant makes it clear where Hamas draws its inspiration for violence and the annihilation of the Jews (and all non-Muslims).

The Islamic Resistance Movement: Islam is its way. It is from Islam that it derives its ideas, concepts, and perceptions concerning the universe, life, and man, and it refers to Islam’s judgment in all its actions. It is from Islam that it seeks direction so as to guide its steps.

The “Movement” as represented by Hamas in Palestine is part of a much larger Islamic terrorist group known as the Muslim Brotherhood which was founded in 1928 by Hasan Al-Banna. Although the “Brotherhood” is technically defunct, its ideals and precepts persist throughout the world in the largest Muslim terrorist network, including massive representation in the United States and other Western countries.

Article Two reveals the intensity of the beliefs of Islamic Resistance Movement (IRM) followers:

[IRM] is distinguished by its profound understanding and its conceptual precision and by the fact that it encompasses the totality of Islamic concepts in all aspects of life, in thought and in creed, in politics and in economics, in education and in social affairs, in judicial matters and in matters of government, in preaching and in teaching, in art and in communications, in secret and in the open, and in all other areas of life.

For followers of the Covenant there is no room for freedom of thought or democratic principles. Islam is all and governs all.

In Articles Three, Six and Seven there is a call upon all Muslims worldwide to raise the banner of jihad or holy war against all filthy, impure and evil unbelievers worldwide.

Article Nine makes it clear that Islam is to rule, not only in Israel but throughout the world.

The Islamic Resistance Movement has found itself in a period when Islam is absent from everyday life. Consequently, the balance has been disturbed, concepts have been confused, values have been altered, evil people have come into power, injustice and darkness have prevailed, the cowardly have become tigers, the homeland has been ravished, the people have been driven away and have been wandering in all the countries of the world. The rule of righteousness is absent, and the rule of falsehood prevails. Nothing is in its proper place. Thus, when Islam is absent, everything is transformed. These are the causes.

As for the goals, they are to fight falsehood, vanquish it and defeat it so that righteousness shall rule, the homeland shall return [to its rightful owner], and from the top of its mosques, the [Muslim] call for prayer will ring out announcing the rise of the rule of Islam, so that people and things shall all return to their proper place. From Allah we seek succor.

In Article Eleven all of Palestine (Canaan to the Jews) is declared to be an Islamic religious endowment. This is an interesting position, since the Islamic holy book, the Qur’an, clearly states that Allah promised the holy land (i.e., Palestine), not to Muslims, but to the Jews.

And when Musa [Moses] said to his people: O my people! Remember the favor of Allah upon you when He raised prophets among you and made you kings and gave you what He had not given to any other among the nations. O my people! Enter the holy land which Allah has prescribed for you and turn not on your backs [that is, give it up] for then you will turn back losers (surah 5:20-21).

While God in the Bible and Allah in the Qur’an promise the Jews Palestine, Arabic Muslims continue to fight for its possession and domination. For the Muslim, the answer is simple: Moses was not a Jew but a Muslim.

Article Thirteen of the Covenant is particularly revealing. It states that ALL “peace” initiatives or solutions for Palestine are null and void before they are implemented because they “stand in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement” and that the only solution is for its members is to “wage jihad in order to raise the banner of Allah over the homeland.” In the last paragraph of this Article, it concludes with: There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except jihad. To read the full Covenant, the student is encouraged to visit the website of Reference #19.

It is, therefore, no surprise, that once again, Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian President and dedicated Hamas leader, rapidly rejected the Trump peace plan. No peace plan will ever be accepted unless it includes the banishment or annihilation of the Jews.

After nearly 20 years of research, Dr. Gauss has put together a one of a kind resource that is designed to educate Christian leaders/teachers on the unadulterated truth about Islam and the extreme challenge it presents to the Church and the Christian community and how Muslims can be presented with the truth of the Gospel without the Church lowering itself to “Common Ground” or “Interfaith Dialogue.” Understanding Islam in the  Light of Christianity A comparison of the Messenger, Message and Mission of the Qur’an and the Bible  An Invaluable Compendium By James F. Gauss, Ph.D. Author of Islam & Christianity, A Revealing Contrast.

Dr. Gauss, in this profound study, is upholding the truth of the Gospel, revealing the fallacies of a false religion. His pen is sharp but the imprint of his spirit is marked with compassion and love for a lost people who believe they are worshipping the one true God.

I commend Dr. Gauss on writing such an informative book bringing out the darkness that covers every page of the Quran and delusions of the Islamic faith.

May there be more voices such as Dr. Gauss proclaiming the truth of God with boldness and in the spirit of Christ. And may we witness freedom for millions of Muslims who are bound by a dark and evil force!

Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble….

The 2016 Presidential Election (Kathleen’s Insight)

October 16, 2016

There is one candidate who is for the things below and one who is opposed.

  • One is pro-Israel, the other is not.
  • One is for freedom of speech, the other wants to control speech.
  • One wants lawful immigration, the other wants open borders.
  • One wants justice in our court system, the other wants activist judges that create law, rather than interpret the law.
  • One wants free enterprise, the other wants increased government regulation.
  • One wants the U.S. Constitution to be the law of the land, the other favors the U.N. Constitution.
  • The one is pro-life, the other wants to support increased abortion, including partial-birth abortion.
  • The one supports freedom of religion, the other seeks to suppress Christianity in America.
  • One has never been investigated for criminal activity, while the other is under constant investigation for such activity at the highest levels.
  • One understands economics and the advantages of capitalism and job creation, the other favors socialism, government control and has never created a job in the free market.
  • The one profits from Wall Street through wise investment, the other profits from Wall Street by giving worthless speeches.
  • One stands firm against corruption in government, the other has been a part of that corruption for decades.
  • One seeks advice from Christian leaders, the other relies on radical socialists.
  • The one wants to rebuild our decimated military, the other wants to continue its demise.
  • The one wants parental control of education, the other wants government control.
  • The one wants to protect America’s sovereignty, the other wants a One World globalist America.
  • One supports racial equality, the other foments racial divisiveness.
  • One respects and supports the sacrifice of America’s veterans, the other despises America’s military personnel.
  • One has demonstrated financial responsibility in matters of finance, the other had $6 billion of taxpayer monies disappear and unaccounted for during time in government office.
  • One believes in parents and families raising children, the other believes government should.
  • One is surrounding himself with patriotic leaders, the other with far left socialists.
  • One expresses the love of country and countrymen, the other speaks of despising fellow Americans.
  • One is for equal opportunity and the “American Dream”, the other for the re-distribution of wealth.
  • One opposes gay rights and gay marriage, the other believes they are constitutional guarantees like freedom of speech and freedom of religion.
  • One stands for law and order, the other for selective justice.

God did not choose to give us a Christian candidate. Perhaps that was the fault of the divided Christian community.  Instead, He gave us a person who is a “work in progress” like all of us.  One who believes in justice and who has strong convictions not unlike most Christians but expresses those convictions in ways that are often unacceptable to most of us.  However, they are sincerely held beliefs.  The other candidate provides evidence every day of being a pathological liar who has repeatedly deceived the American people.

A City on a Hill. If the Church and we as Christians are called to be “the salt of the earth” . . . “the light of the world” . . . and to be “A city set on a hill” that should not be hidden (Jesus in Matthew 5:13-14), why is it so hard for many Christians to believe that God planted His church and His people in America for the sake of the nation?

From the very founding of our country God has given His church (and His people) the responsibility for the spiritual well being of the nation. He gave America a constitution based on Judeo-Christian values—not Islamic, not Hindu, not atheistic or any other).  It has proved to be the best form of self-government the world has ever known.  Ironically, but by political design, our educational system now teaches the value of the U.N. constitution and globalism and Islamic thought.  These are two very different anti-freedom, anti-Christian and oppressive systems.  Partly as a result of these re-education systems (and to a lesser degree, biblical interpretations), many Christians believe that they should not be involved in politics or hold political office.  God foresaw this outcome of anti-God globalism with His revelation to the Apostle John on the Isle of Patmos nearly 2000 years ago.

As Christians living in America we are part of the most unique “experiment” in the history of the world—a self-governing people whose laws and way of life were founded on biblical principles. The Church was planted here in America for the sake of the country and the mandate of Christians to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ worldwide.

As citizens of God’s Kingdom on earth we have a responsibility to demonstrate God’s love and righteousness in our midst; to be accountable for our actions or lack thereof in standing up for righteousness and mercy. I believe this is America’s last call for redemption.  The advantage that Satan has is that the Church has always been divided by pettiness, pride, rivalry and biblical incidentals.  We have untold denominations and sects, each believing they have the “truth”.  Here is the “truth”—“a kingdom” (country) or “house divided cannot stand” (Matthew 12:25).  America is divided mainly because the Church is divided.

For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins  with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?  (1 Peter 4:17).

Founding Father, John Adams, in his Thoughts on Government (1776), wrote: Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it. It is the responsibility of the populace, the American people, including Christians, to hold their elected officials accountable for their actions and decisions and to make sure they are upholding the law of the land and not implementing their own for their own benefit or agenda. An election is the one best opportunity, bar a revolution, to bring about a change of government when one is needed.

John Adams, in a speech before the Militia of Massachusetts declared, Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other (October 11, 1798). Perhaps that is America’s biggest problem, we have fallen away from God and as a whole are no longer a people of faith.  We have allowed our Constitution to be trashed by globalists and irreligious elitists with self-serving interests and not that of the people.  God will hold Christians accountable for the outcome of America’s unique world contribution to self-government.


The Fundamental Changing of America

May 20, 2015

James F. Gauss, author of

Islam & Christianity, A Revealing Contrast

Revelation 18 and the fate of America

We the People: Birth of a Nation

And a dozen other books.

We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

Barack Obama, October 30, 2008

We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.

Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

I’m tired of the liberal and conservative media and pundits claiming President Obama is inept, uninformed, ignorant, out-of-the-loop, disingenuous, etc., etc., etc.  Obama has always had a plan right from the beginning.  He is calculating, clever, deceptive and accomplishing exactly what he started out to do—fundamentally transform the great United States of America into his image of a weakened, ineffective America from within and diminish her world leadership and strength.  His wife, an equal collaborator in the plot, clearly stated that their goal was to change our traditions, our history, which they have effectively done through manipulation of the historical truths and traditions to suit their purposes of diminishing America’s image at home and abroad.

. . . we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation, Mrs. Obama declared.  Indeed, we have moved into a different place—a place of being despised, mistrusted, hated and ridiculed by much of the world.  America is now a place swamped in an over-burdening national debt; an economy on life support; an emasculated and diminished military; a racist society; a destroyed health care system; a tramped on constitution; an invasion of illegal immigrants and Islamic terrorists . . . and the list goes on and on.

National Security and Islamic Terrorism.  The newly elected Barack Hussein Obama demonstrated where his heart was when within days of his inauguration he signed an Executive Order to close GITMO within one year.  Although he succeeded in releasing dozens of Islamic terrorists from the internment camp, he has not, to date, been successful in closing it.  In mid-March when he was asked what advice he would give himself if he could go back to his first day in office, Obama exclaimed, “I would’ve closed Guantanamo on the first day.”

Obama, of course, has had a lot of help along the way with his cause.  He had the full support of the anti-American, anti-truth mainstream media; the extreme left-wing Democrats and their lock-arm cohorts in the Republican party and a populace that had been effectively dumbed-down over decades to the point where the only thing that counted was to elect a “black” man to the highest and most responsible office in the land and perhaps the world.  It did not matter to these people what the man’s agenda was, where he came from, what his experience was, what his politics or beliefs were.  It just did not matter.  Well, now it matters and it matters big time.

Obama has already fired over 200 leading military commanders and given pink slips to over 500 more officers.  [See Obama’s plan to replace patriotic soldiers with illegal, non-patriotic immigrants under the section on Immigration.]

In a January, 2014 article in The New Yorker magazine, when President Obama was asked about the status of Islamic terrorist groups (including ISIS) in the Middle East, he flippantly replied: “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee [junior varsity] team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.”  Eight months later, with the emergence of a powerful ISIS terrorist group in Syria and Iraq, Obama and his administration were trying to deny that he was including ISIS in his remarks.  As it turns out, a full 17 months before those remarks, on August 5, 2012, a U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency report predicted that ISIS would rise to power and threaten the entire Syria-Iraq region and beyond and establish an Islamic caliphate if not immediately engaged militarily and defeated.

Dateline, May 15, 2015.  Pentagon spokesman, Brig. Gen. Thomas D. Weidley, declared, “We firmly believe [ISIL] is on the defensive throughout Iraq and Syria, attempting to hold previous gains, while conducting small-scale, localized harassing attacks [and] occasional complex or high-profile attacks to feed their information and propaganda apparatus.”  The Brig. Gen. went on to say that the “coalition” strategy to defeat ISIL (ISIS) was working.

Dateline, May 18, 2015, three days later, ISIS forces overrun the Iraqi military in Ramadi, the capital of Al Anbar province in Iraq, a city of about 200,000 that is only 68 miles (110 km) west of Baghdad.  Along with their victory, ISIS troops captured a bonanza of U.S. supplied equipment and weapons.  ISIS members were going house-to-house searching for Iraqi government collaborators, raising fears of another ISIS blood bath of civilians.

Dateline, May 19, 2015, Whitehouse press secretary, Josh Ernest, insists that the administration’s policy to annihilate ISIS/ISIL is working overall.

Dateline, May 20, 2015, ISIS captures the ancient Syrian town of Palmyra as the Syrian army flees.  It must be really hard for the administration to keep up with all these success stories with their strategy of defeating ISIS working so well. The 2000-year old city is known as “The Pearl of the Desert.”  Although abandoned in 1932, it is a treasure-trove of antiquity.  ISIS will likely destroy the city’s treasure houses of ancient artifacts.

The ancient city of Palmyra, Syria

The ancient city of Palmyra, Syria

Despite the fact that ISIS now conquered the key city of Ramaldi, the ancient city of Palmyra and now controls half of Syria, much of Iraq and has operating forces in 8 or more other countries, the Obama administration and his Pentagon see no need to revise their strategy or policies for defeating ISIS.  Apparently, everything is going according to plan.

Update:  It is abundantly clear that Obama has no intention of weakening ISIS, much less actually defeating them.  U.S. pilots in Iraq are complaining that Obama’s rules of military engagement prevent them from effectively hitting and destroying enemy targets.  Because of such limitations, 75% of the planes that are sent out on combat missions return with their payloads intact.  The airstrikes are so few (14/day average) that they are totally ineffective.  During “Desert Storm” their were an average of 1125 strikes/day.  Even the limited engagement in Kosovo averaged 135 strikes/day; “Iraqi Freedom”, 800/day.

Invasion of Privacy.  With the invasion of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA), the IRS, the CIA, the FBI and the government monitoring of the Internet, cell phones and drones hovering overhead, Americans have never had less privacy than now.  Those who are elected to high office have often used their power and the agencies they control to take advantage of their perceived enemies.  However, Obama and his team have taken such power to new obscene heights of deviousness and lawlessness.

Health Care.  President Obama and his Democratic colleagues have effectively destroyed America’s once premier health care system.  Yes, there were some faults and shortcomings, but nothing that could not be resolved and tweaked into an improved system without government intervention and takeover. It should be noted that not one Republican voted for the ACA (Affordable Care Act), better known as Obamacare.  Obamacare, through the lies and deceptions of Obama and Democratic leaders has routinely caused the destruction of the United States health care system. The negative impact of Obamacare is so great that an overwhelming majority of doctors are planning an early retirement or just plain quitting the practice of medicine.

As I wrote back on August 25, 2009, it would have been far cheaper and less invasive and disruptive for those who were uninsured and wanted insurance to receive health insurance purchase vouchers instead of a government takeover of America’s health care system that will cost the American taxpayer trillions of dollars.

More and more rural and small town hospitals are closing because of Obamacare.  In a 2012 survey by the Doctor Patient Medical Association, 83% of doctors surveyed said they have considered quitting their practice because of Obamacare.  While at the same time it has been estimated that America will need 90,000 more doctors by 2020.

The litany of Obama and Democratic lies about the ACA is almost endless—from the cost of health insurance will go down to, if you like your doctor you can keep him or her to, if you like your plan you can keep your plan.  Not only were the American people consistently lied to, but to implement the law, Obama and his administration violated the law or changed the law dozens of times to suit their nefarious purposes.

Millions (maybe even billions) of dollars are being squandered through the ACA as a Senate investigative report recently disclosed that thousands are getting unqualified subsidies at taxpayer expense.  The new health care system has quickly become rife with corruption and illegal dispensing of taxpayer funds to those who do not qualify.  Heath care “exchanges” that were set up in various states at the cost of hundreds of millions of dollars are shutting down due to failure to function properly or effectively enroll people accurately.  The latest is Hawaii, whose exchange is collapsing after a cost of $205 million to taxpayers.

National Finance.  Obama is deliberately plunging America into bankruptcy with the help of his fellow Democrats and a wimped out Republican congress.  The Obama juggernaut has added more debt to the pockets of the American family than all the previous 43 presidents combined.  By 2025 it is estimated that the interest on the National Debt alone will top $808 billion in that year or $37 billion more than America’s total National Debt in 1978.  Just to cover the interest on that debt, every man, woman and child in America would have to fork over another $2500/year in taxes.  The interest, however, is based on an overly optimistic assumption that the current historically low interest rates will stay near the bottom—which they will not.

To compound the problem, of course, there has been no attempt by the current president or Congress, nor by those that preceded them, to reduce spending or reduce the debt.  Therefore, the current national debt of $18.23 trillion will continue to rise exponentially, as will the interest on the debt.  If such a rise is left unabated the national debt is projected to top $25 trillion in 8 years in 2023.  Although overwhelming, that estimate just might be rather light.  If interest rates were to hit 5%, the interest on $25 trillion would be a mind boggling $1.25 trillion.  Of course, America’s economy would likely have collapsed long before that.

Immigration.  America has always been known as the great “melting pot” for the world’s immigrants.  No country matches the United States for its ethnic and cultural diversity.  Ironically, it is this same openness to virtually unrestricted immigration that is becoming America’s downfall.  America has become so ethnically and culturally diverse that the country has no sense of identity, loyalty or mission anymore.  Impact of immigration on culture, jobs, welfare, standard of living, safety, economy and a host of other areas has severely impugned America’s strength and vitality.  With our borders wide open and under guarded, the flood of illegal and undocumented immigrants, including known ISIS members and other Islamic terrorists should be of major concern to all Americans.  Not only is the safety of every American resident at risk but also the economic, social and cultural welfare of the country.  The hard truth and reality is that the vast majority of immigrants flowing into America are not highly educated or skilled.  They will not pay a significant amount in taxes, but will have a significant negative impact on the health care systems, education, welfare, housing, job market and criminal justice systems throughout the U.S.

Recently, it was discovered that DHS (Department of Homeland Security) was picking up thousands of African immigrants at the Mexican/U.S. border, many of whom are from Islamic terrorist nations like Somalia and Libya and busing them to temporary detention centers for processing.

According to Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA), at a time when U.S. citizens are being “downsized” from the U.S. military or even turned away at recruiting centers, there is a push to sign up illegal immigrants in the U.S. military.  “The House Armed Services Committee recently approved an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA),” noted Brat, “that encourages the secretary of defense to declare that illegal immigrants categorized under President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty—Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)—are ‘vital’ to America’s national interest and thus eligible to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces. Congressman Ruben Gallego’s, D-Ariz., amendment passed the committee with six Republicans joining all 27 Democrats.”  This move is occurring at a time when tens of thousands of U.S. troops are being laid off by the Pentagon.  Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, has stated that the U.S. Army will be reduced by 80,000 active duty troops by the end of fiscal year 2017.   Putting illegal immigrants on the front line of America’s defense when they have no proven loyalty or commitment to the United States is not only risky and dangerous, but absolutely stupid.

Education.  Common Core may be the last peg in the destruction of U.S. education.  It should be a telling indicator when so many teachers and school administrators are quitting over it, refusing to implement it.  At least 13 states have opted out; another five are considering and four never signed on to Common Core and another four states are looking at delaying or modifying the standards and five have bills pending to drop or modify Common Core.  Teachers, students and parents are rebelling against Common Core and its curriculum by the hundreds of thousands all over America.  In New York State alone, almost 191,000 students opted out of Common Core’s end-of-year assessment tests.

The parent/student protest movement against Common Core has become so strong that the U.S. Secretary of education, Arne Duncan, recently threatened parents who oppose Common Core with up to 30 days in jail if they allow their children to refuse to participate in Common Core end-of-year testing.

In case you thought the U.S. Department of Education is a harmless government agency that just wants the best for the nation’s children, guess again.  The DOE has become militarized in order to deal with parents and students who dare to seek the best education and not the government indoctrination and dumbing down one.  The Office of Inspector General, the “law enforcement arm” of the DOE has recently been stocking up on ammo and firearms.  Why?  The explanation can be found on their website.

The Office of Inspector General is the law enforcement arm of the U.S. Department of Education and is responsible for the detection of waste, fraud, abuse, and other criminal activity involving Federal education funds, programs, and operations. As such, OIG operates with full statutory law enforcement authority, which includes conducting search warrants, making arrests, and carrying firearms. (Source: Website of the Office of Inspector General).

Can you say: “dictatorship” and “communism”?  It has arrived with gusto in the former land of the free. 

In an end of year survey of teen students from 65 countries in 2013, students from the U.S. ranked 36th in math, reading and science.  In the Program for International Student Assessment in 2013, the average U.S. 15 year old student scored 498 (out of a possible 1000) for literacy, ranking the U.S. education system at 24th of 65 around the world.  In a 2014 survey of people from 14 countries on their degree of social and political awareness, the U.S. was near the top in ignorance, only being outranked by Italy.  This is the result of the U.S. spending $115,000 per student (2013, 5th highest in the world) and yet the educational end result keeps getting worse.

At the same time there is a war on homeschooling parents who dare to strive for a better, non-indoctrinated education for their children.  Many are being dragged into court or even having their children taken away on trumped-up charges of child neglect or providing an improper learning experience.

Immorality.  Not only has taxpayer funded abortions by Planned Parenthood risen to record levels ($542 million FY 2012 and $540.6 million FY 2013) under Obama, but the majority of Obamacare health care exchanges require insurance providers to cover elective abortions.  Obama and his administration have also become the undisputed champion of homosexual rights and gay marriage, effectively destroying the tradition of marriage and the traditional family unit.  As early as kindergarten and throughout public school children are being taught that however and whenever you want to have sex, if it makes you feel good, it’s okay and acceptable.  In Fairfax County, VA the school district recently announced plans to introduce a Family Life curriculum that teaches 7th through 12th graders that there is no such thing as a male gender or a female gender.  That you can be whatever gender you desire . . . or no gender at all.  Absolutely unbelievable!  Sodom and Gomorrah, here we come.

Update:  A recent 2015 Gallup poll disclosed that now 63% of those polled think homosexual relationships and marriage is okay; p from 40% n 2001.  Also, 61% believe that having children out of wedlock is just fine; up from 45% in 2001.

Re-writing American History.  At the same time that Obama is lauding Islam as a religion of peace and praising Muslims for their contributions to America and the world, he takes every opportunity to denigrate, ridicule and criticize Christianity—the faith he claims to adhere to.  While Americans “sleep” he is inaugurating the largest influx of Muslims into America with little screening to see just how many Islamic terrorists there are among them.  While saying that America is not a Christian nation, he has the audacity to falsely claim that America is one of the largest Muslim nations.  To set the record straight, America’s Muslim population has been estimated to be around 6 million or less than 2%, far under the top 116 nations with higher Muslim populations by percent.  By total population, America’s Muslim population ranks 58th out of 60 Muslim populated nations.  Sorry, Mr. O, but America is far from being a major Muslim nation.

Not long ago, in an effort to pacify his Muslim brothers, Obama grossly misrepresented the facts and history of the Crusades and Thomas Jefferson’s view of Islam.  Obama repeatedly misrepresents the truth in order to favor his agenda—whether its politics, religion or any other topic.

Racism & Racial Tension:  Obama and his administration promote and encourage racism.  They proclaim outrage when a black thug is killed, but remain silent when blacks riot and destroy homes, businesses or murder innocent non-blacks for the “kicks.”  Because of Obama—the “one” who was supposed to bring racial harmony—race relations have suffered a 50-year set-back.

Obama’s comments on Baltimore riots (the day after, April 28) were more incendiary than helpful: “We have seen too many instances of what appears to be police officers interacting with individuals, primarily African Americans, often poor, in ways that raise troubling questions. And it comes up it seems like once a week now, or every couple weeks. And so I think it’s understandable that, and more importantly moms and dads across the country, saying this is a crisis.”  Now, there is no question that there have been incidences where the police force in parts of the country have over-reacted or even unjustly injured or killed someone, both blacks and non-blacks.  However, those deaths measure far less than the number of policemen and police women killed or maimed in the line of duty, often as intentional targets.

From 2005 through 2014, 1463 law enforcement professionals lost their lives in the call of duty, with at least 777 from personal attacks of perpetrators.  From 2010-2014, 682 were killed in the line of duty.  During the same period, 96 black males were killed by police officers and 300 white males were killed by police officers.  In 2014, 431 whites were killed by blacks (who represent 13.2% of the U.S. population), while 193 blacks were killed by whites (77.7% of the population.  Now, if three times as many whites as blacks are being killed by law enforcement and over twice as many whites as blacks are being killed by the opposite race, why does this always boil down to a black issue where blacks are portrayed as the victims?  Why?  Because blacks seem to be more prone to take to the streets to cause chaos and mayhem—destroying property, vandalism, arson, looting, beatings and murder—all under the guise of “seeking justice”.  When was the last time you saw or heard of a group or community of whites or Hispanics (17.1% of the population) going on a rampage because one of their community was murdered by a police officer or a person of the opposite race?

The American Economy.  Under employment/ low worker participation rate.  First quarter of this year the U.S. economy grew by a paltry 0.2%.  Economists had expected a 1% growth rate or about 4% pace for the year.  Instead the economy grew at less than a 1% rate.  The economy, at that rate, cannot and will not create meaningful full time jobs.

As of May 4, almost 50 retail chains have announced over 6,000 store closings, resulting in thousands of layoffs.  This includes such well known companies as Radio Shack (1784 closings), Office Depot/Office Max (400), Dollar Tree/Family Dollar (340), Walgreens (200), Staples (55 stores) and many more.

Update:  There are now a record 110 million Americans receiving federal assistance of some sort.  Note, this does not include those legitimately receiving the earned benefits of Social Security and Medicare for which taxes were collected from income over the years.

Update:  May 29, Obama’s government revised downward the nation’s GDP growth rate to -0.7% (yes, that’s minus 0.7%). Further evidence that Obama and the Congress’s economic policies are destructive.

Military Preparedness.  America’s military, say military veterans, is at the weakest level since before World War II.

Such a rampant elimination of military leaders by an American Commander-in-Chief is unprecedented in all of American military history.  It has become so bad, that along with Obama’s military funding cuts, the U.S. Army Chief of Staff, General Ray Odierno revealed in late October, 2013, that the U.S. Army only had two brigades that he would consider combat ready.  That is a total of 6,000 to 10,000 troops.  Gen. Odierno noted that, due to the sequester budget cuts, the military had to stop training exercises for the last six months of the year.  The two brigades that are estimated to be combat-ready do not include those in Afghanistan, Odierno commented, since those stationed there are only there for “training and advising”.

In a November 7, 2013 Senate Armed Services Committee meeting, members of the committee were stunned by the testimony of the U.S. Air Force representatives.  Due to sequestration the nation’s once powerful Air Force has been severely damaged in its ability to be combat ready.  Air Force Secretary Eric Fanning, in his testimony, noted that not only is the Air Force having to cut back on aircraft maintenance, it is having a hard time keeping experienced pilots because of the forced reduction in flight time and training.  Despite huge bonuses being offered to pilots to stay in the Force, many are leaving for the private airline sector. 

However, all branches of the U.S. military have been drastically affected.  Under the sequester the U.S. Army must cut back to 380,000 soldiers; the U.S. Marines are limited to 150,000 troops; the U.S. Navy is reducing its total fleet number to 260 craft (down from 600 under the Reagan presidency) and cancelling maintenance on 30 ships and 250 aircraft.  Of the $1 trillion in sequester cuts under President Obama, over half were absorbed by the U.S. military at one of the most perilous times in the country’s history. . . . 

Obama’s purge will greatly affect America’s military leadership and military readiness for decades to come.  “Over the past three years,” retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry”  Boykin, noted, “it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause.” 

Because of the purge, Lt. Gen. Boykin points out; future leadership is leaving the military, seeing no future in their patriotism.  Obama’s tyrannical, dictatorial leadership has become offensive to conservative, patriotic personnel in the four branches of military service.  “Morale is at an unprecedented low,” Boykin said (Revelation 18 and the fate of America, pp. 287-289).

Interestingly, American volunteers (former military & Christians) are returning to the Iraq theatre to fight against ISIS, vowing to get the job done that they were not allowed to do while in the military.

In Africa, despite Boko Haram’s reign of terror in Nigeria (mostly against Christians), where thousands of Christians have been displaced, tortured, kidnapped or slaughtered, Obama has repeatedly refused to send Nigeria any military weapons or intelligence to Nigeria because of the former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan’s stance against homosexuality.  So Jonathan was forced to contract with white mercenaries from South Africa, who recently have been forcing Boko Haram into retreat and have freed many villages and kidnapped victims from the clutches of the notorious Islamic terrorist group.

Update:  In a survey conducted by Military Times of 2300 active duty personnel, only 15% approved of Obama’s role as Commander-in-Chief.

Foreign Relations.  America’s image abroad has, perhaps, never been worse.  Due to Obama’s feckless foreign policies and reneging on his words and commitments, few world leaders trust America any more.  Our influence abroad has been severely diminished.  A good case in point is Saudi Arabia.  When Yemen on their border was overrun by Islamic terrorists and eventually fell, they appealed to the U.S. for help.  Finding none, they turned to Vladimir Putin and the Russians who were only too glad to fill the void.  Obama also turned his back on the Ukrainians when they appealed for help to fight the Russian invasion of the Crimea.  While extolling Islam, Obama has ignored the millions of Christians who are being persecuted and slaughtered by Muslims around the world.

In South America, while Obama fawns over communist Cuba 90 miles from Florida, the view of America by South American leaders has likely never been lower.  SA leaders despise Obama’s policies and his condescending attitude toward South Americans.

Update: June 1, President Obama declared that under his administration America is now the most respected nation in the world. (I’ll let you fill in your own epithets).

Strengthening Our Enemies.  On April 17.  Obama, in a Whitehouse press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, stated that he’s Ok with Russia’s sale of S-300 missiles to Iran.  No alarms for him.  According to Air Power Australia (an independent defense think tank),

While the S-300P/S-400 series is often labelled as ‘Russia’s Patriot’, the system in many key respects is more capable than the US Patriot series, and in later variants offers mobility performance and thus survivability much better than that of the Patriot. The introduction of the 64N6 Big Bird series of phased array acquisition radars in later variants provides them with many of the capabilities of the US SPY-1 Aegis system, in a highly mobile SAM system. From an Australian perspective the deployment of large numbers of the S-300P/S-400 family of missiles in Asia is of major concern. Rapidly deployable, high survivable, and highly lethal, these weapons are especially difficult to counter and require significant capabilities to robustly defeat.

However, for President ‘What me worry?’ Obama, there is not a smidgen of concern.

War on Christianity.  Although Obama claims to be a Christian (actions speak louder than words), he and his “justice” department never seem to miss an opportunity to demean, persecute and prosecute Christians every time they try to take a stand for their faith.  Christians all across the country are being sued and forced out of business, and in many cases losing their livelihood and personal assets.  Why?  Because they refuse to subjugate their faith and cater to gay weddings.

Recently, an Air Force General, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson, was being threatened with court martial because he had the audacity to proclaim at a National Day of Prayer Task Force event that God was the reason for success in the military.  The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (that has an “in” with the Obama administration) was outraged and demanded he be court martialed.  Elsewhere, in the military, chaplains are forbidden to pray with soldiers in the “name of Jesus” or they will lose their officer’s commission. 

Rejecting Israel.  It is no secret that Obama appears to detest Israel and has no love for Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.  Obama favors a “two state” solution for Israel, using every opportunity to push for the legitimacy of an Islamic terrorist state within Israel.  He so despises Netanyahu and Israel that he intentionally disclosed Israel’s long-kept secret nuclear weapons research to the world.  Obama tried, but failed, to undermine Netanyahu’s re-election in March of this year—another treasonous activity.  Although he could not be directly associated, many of his closest supporters were involved and received significant government funding for the attempt.  It is clear, that while Obama loathes Israel, he cow tails to the Islamic terrorist sponsoring nation of Iran, Israel’s (and the world’s) arch enemy.  He, or his U.N. representative, also clearly stand with Muslim nations at the United Nations in condemning Israel for one thing or another.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
