Early Headline: “Trump/Pence Win!”

November 6, 2016

As some of my early blogs on this election would testify, I was not enthusiastic about Donald Trump as the GOP presidential nominee. However, about two months ago I realized that this election is far more about the future of the nation; the administrative cabinets, department and agency heads, the Departments of Justice, Defense and Homeland Security in particular, that matter more than the presidential candidate.

That being said, while Trump has his baggage (as virtually all candidates do), one thing he has demonstrated far more than Clinton and that is his extreme patriotism and desire to right the wrongs in America.

So, here’s my prediction, and I will go way out on a limb. Trump will win.  Not only win, but win by a wide margin, perhaps 10 percent or more.  Here’s why:

  • A large number of moderate democrats who are sick of the Hillary (and Bill) scandals, habitual lying and self-enrichment, will either stay home or vote for Trump/Pence.
  • A growing number of Black and Hispanic voters are finally seeing the light and realizing that Hillary represents more of the same lies and disaster for minority populations.
  • Trump support is on a strong upswing right before the election, while Clinton’s is on the downswing.
  • While Trump has been focusing mostly on policy of late, the best Clinton can do is keep bringing up the old dead issue of Trump’s immoral pronouncements about women twenty years ago.
  • The FBI announcement about re-opening their Clinton investigation has shattered any support Clinton might have garnered from the undecideds. The majority will vote for Trump.
  • Trump supporters are not fair-weather supporters. They will vote no matter what the weather or obstacles.
  • More and more Americans are waking up to the depth of Clinton’s corruption.
  • The majority of Americans are sick of all the ineffectiveness and corruption in Washington.
  • Hillary Clinton represents more of the same Washington corruption; Trump represents a fresh face with new hope.
  • Patriotic Americans will vote against anyone who does not uphold the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms.  Clinton is clearly against that provision of the Constitution.
  • The majority of Christian voters understand that Clinton is anti-Christian and anti-Israel.
  • People are realizing the real danger of the Clinton immigration and open borders policy.
  • American patriots have not forgotten about Benghazi and Clinton’s “what difference does it make” statement.
  • More Americans understand the disastrous foreign policies of Obama/Clinton that has resulted in the explosion of Islamic terrorism in the Middle East, Europe and the U.S.
  • The Obamacare debacle will hurt Clinton who is in favor of socialized medical care.
  • Traditionally democratic states are trending in favor of Trump or are “toss-ups” right before the election.
  • For the past few weeks Trump has been acting more presidential, while Clinton has been acting more unhinged.

So, here’s my bold prediction (not seen anywhere else): Trump/Pence will command 55% or more of the popular vote and at least 300 electoral votes (270 needed to win).

Now, that will prevent Hillary from pardoning herself. If we can be patient and wait until Trump takes office and select a new attorney general, then Obama will not be able to pardon her either should she be indicted.  That would be ideal.

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 2016 Presidential Election

October 16, 2016

A Christian’s Perspective

As Christians and Americans we have a challenging decision to make this election. Never in the history of our country have we had two least desirable candidates for the highest office in the land and perhaps the most powerful leadership position in the world.  For most, the decision boils down to Clinton or Trump, or “none of the above.”  It has been a presidential campaign marked by continuous accusations, threats, intimidations and lapses in moral character—all of which should be reprehensible for the Christian believer.

The truth is, America has never had a righteous, sinless person run or get elected to public office.  Not even George Washington, who was unquestionably the best and most humble person to hold the office of president of the United States.

However, I have come to realize, that despite the undesirable nature of each major candidate, for the Christian or patriotic American, this election is not about, “do I vote for Clinton or Trump?”, but what kind of presidential administration, judicial system, military, law, immigration policy, respect of life, civil rights, respect of the Bill of Rights and U.S. Constitution, etc. do I want and expect from the nation’s leadership?  Which candidate is most likely to surround himself or herself with law abiding cabinet members that will implement the will of the people?  Which one will seek to establish a judicial system that not only follows the Constitution, but interprets the law and does not make new law without the consent of the people or Congress?  Which one will rebuild the U.S. military that has been decimated over the last 8 years to levels not seen since WWII?  Which one will seek to re-establish racial harmony and oneness instead fomenting divisiveness?  Which one has pledged to respect the lives of the unborn?  Which one will uphold justice for all?  Which one has pledged to follow the Bill of Rights which guarantees the freedom of speech, religion, the press, right to peacefully assemble and bear arms?  Which one has agreed to protect our country’s borders and implement a sane immigration policy? Which one is likely to follow the law when signing into law congressional laws or mandates?

The presidency is much more than just the presidential candidate, it is the course of America and what we desire our country to look like.  Now, let me make myself clear: As a Christian, I am a Christ follower first, then an American in terms of birth and placement.  I have said for years that America has slid past the point where human intervention will save her.  Only God can and will redeem her, but only if the Church and its people repent for allowing things to get this bad through ignoring sin and refusing to stand up for righteousness.

The New Year: Wake Me When It’s Over

January 13, 2015

Get your favorite non-alcoholic drink and relax in your comfy chair.  This is a long one (six years in the making).

(Disclaimer:  I don’t blog that often because, quite frankly, I’m tired of all the bad news and I hate to be the bearer of even more.  But sometimes I just can’t stand it anymore, watching my beloved country being flushed down the toilet and not enough Americans seem to care to do anything about it.  Especially our elected officials who seem to march lock-step blindly on; seeing nothing wrong and hoping that time will heal all wounds.  But I am a “watchman” and I am called to keep the warning before the people as long as there are still people who care to be warned and heed those warnings.)

I’m tired.  I’m tired of all the meaningless rhetoric from politicians (especially Republicans—I expect it from the liberal, leftist Democrats), the liberal “yellow” journalism press and the heretical clergy.  The Republican establishment yammer on-and-on about how bad President Obama is and how scandalous he and his administration are; how corrupt; how inept; how this, how that, but then do absolutely, absolutely nothing to combat it or come against it.  Not even to have the courage to stand up against Obama and his ilk, but to actively participate and support his Marxist agenda.

Let’s review the Obama accomplishments so far.  God help us for what the next two years will bring.

The Economy.  If you think the economy is really good, then you have been brainwashed by the liberal media and Obama’s lying government.  With all the lies and deception that Obama, his staff and agencies have been caught with, do you really think the economy is as good as they are trying to make you believe?  I know, the stock market is rising to record highs; unemployment has supposedly sunk to 5.6 percent and so on.  But have you stopped to consider that the vast majority of jobs that have been “created” are either part-time or lower paying service sector jobs?  There are really very few high paying jobs in manufacturing, trades or the professional ranks.  Real household income is at the lowest it’s been in decades.  The workforce participation rate (62.8%) is the lowest since 1978 and has steadily dropped since the year 2000.  That means a lot of people have just given up on looking for meaningful work.

And unemployment?  Well, according to highly respected economist Walter “John” Williams of the popular ShadowStats web site, if you factor in all those who have given up looking and all those who want full time work but can only find part-time at McDonalds or Wal Mart, the “real” unemployment/under-employment rate jumped from around 12.5% before Obama took office to over 20% after he took office and has held steady at around 22-23% range for the past six years.  As far as Obama being the “savior” of the black community, unemployment among his “brethren” remains stubbornly double that of whites.  Among black teens, 16-19 years old, it has been near or above 30% and still is above 28%.

If the economy is doing so well then how is it that major retailers like Sears, Kmart, Macy’s, Radio Shack and many others are planning on closing thousands of stores (Radio Shack, 1,100 alone) and laying off tens of thousands of employees in 2015?  If the economy is so good, why are there still over 46 million Americans receiving food stamps?  About 20 million more than when Obama first took office.

To understand Obama’s view of what makes the economy work, one should listen to or read his speech at Osawatomie High School (Kansas) on December 6, 2011.  In his attempt to explain “trickle down” economics that is promoted by capitalists, he stated: “If only we cut more regulations and cut more taxes—especially for the wealthy—our economy will grow stronger. . . . if the winners do really well, jobs and prosperity will eventually trickle down to everyone else.

“. . . Here’s the problem:” he asserted, “It doesn’t work.  It’s never worked.”  Obama’s way to economic prosperity for all is to tax more and regulate more.  Just during his first term, the Obama administration issued new regulations that will cost the American taxpayer $70 billion.  The number of regulations during Obama’s first term were almost triple those of his predecessor, President Bush, during his first term.  Just in his fourth year of office alone, federal regulators issued 2605 new rules.  In his first five years in office Obama has added 17,522 pages to the Code of Federal Regulations.  The CFR had 175,496 pages at the end of 2013.  In 2014, Obama added an estimated 75,000 pages of new regulations or an estimated $181 billion in new financial burdens upon Americans.

And there you have Obama’s simple Marxist view of America and capitalism.  “It doesn’t work.  It’s never worked.”  Despite 300-plus years of American ingenuity, industrialization and “trickle down” prosperity that (up until now) has built the greatest country and economy the world has ever known.  But, according the great “seer”, it just doesn’t work.

America’s Financial Condition.  When President Obama took office on January 20, 2009, America’s National debt was $10.626 trillion and the debt held by the public was $6.307 trillion.  America had endured 8 years of George Bush’s presidency in which he added $4.9 trillion to the National Debt.  Presidential candidate Obama called Bush’s penchant for such debt accumulation “unpatriotic”.  Now enter Obama’s world.  The National Debt after 6 years of Barack Obama now stands at $18.08 trillion and will likely exceed $20 trillion before Obama’s last year in office ends.  Public debt under Obama has risen to $12.995 trillion as of December 31, 2014 or over 100%.  That means that under Obama more public debt has been accumulated than under the administrations of all 43 presidents that preceded him, as will the National Debt before his second term is over.  What is even worse is that Congress appears to be unwilling or uninterested in stemming the tide of red ink and the weight of the economic burden it is placing upon the shoulders of every American, present and future.  It is unconscionable, but then, no one ever accused a politician of having a conscience.  Oh, and the interest on this debt?  Only a mere $522 billion per year and rising.  Gee, what could the American economy look like with an extra half trillion circulating each year?

To put this in a worldwide perspective, it is estimated that the global indebtedness of all nations at the end of 2014 was $60.906 trillion.  Of this debt, the people of the United States held 29.6% of it, but only represent 4.4% of the world population.  With the Obama administration’s bent on uncontrolled immigration, America’s financial condition will worsen as unskilled, uneducated, lower wage earners flood the country and governmental system, creating greater indebtedness for hardworking Americans while contributing little to the country’s tax base.  Hardworking U.S. citizens will see their tax burdens rise and real incomes continue to shrink.

Inflation.  The “official” government position is, and has been for some time, that inflation or the CPI (Consumer Price Index) is somewhere between 0 and 2% or lastly (November) at 1.3%.  Do you believe that?  If you do, you are not paying attention to what you are buying or have a short memory of the recent past.  When we departed the U.S. of A. in August of 2011, I remember that in the Midwest we could buy top sirloin steak for $3.98-4.98/lb.  Milk was about $3.50/gallon; eggs about $1.20/doz.; bread about $2; sliced roast beef was around $5.99/lb.; sliced Virginia ham about $4.99.  Upon our visit to the U.S. in June this past year we found that top sirloin had risen to $9.98; milk was about $5.00/gallon; eggs $2.50; bread $3.50-4.00; sliced roast beef and Virginia ham was $8.99 and $6.99 respectively.  This food inflation was far higher than the 0-2% the government data presents.

What has masked true inflation is the plummeting energy sector—no thanks to Obama.  Oil prices are declining due to world economies being in the tank and the surge of oil production on private U.S. land, something Obama has no control over but is trying to clamp down on through more and more environmental regulations.

Education & Knowledge.  Not long ago I watched a couple of informal history surveys on two different university campuses.  The two different interviewers asked simple, basic questions that any 5th grader should be able to answer.  Such questions as: “Who won the Civil War?”  “From whom did America win its independence?”  “Who is America’s Vice President?”  In each case, an overwhelming number of students did not have a clue as to the right answer.  This is just one indication of the radical left’s success in “dumbing down” of America’s youth.   Enter Common Core, another peg in the dumbing down strategy that even teachers across the country are rebelling against and some states are passing legislation to outlaw it.

Not content with trying to control the educational input of our children, the Obamas, via Michelle, decided they knew best what kids in school should eat.  As a result, thousands of uneaten lunches across America are thrown out each day by kids who refuse to eat the garbage called “food”.   Real history that teaches students true, politically incorrect history has been banned from schools at all levels, as has true science and math.

Teenagers cannot even make simple mathematical decisions without a calculator, cash register or computer.  I once asked a teenager at a convenience store for five singles in exchange for a five dollar bill.  She looked at me like I was speaking a foreign tongue.  I finally said, “May I have five one dollar bills, please?” In part, because of this dumbing down, that is why I decided to write two volumes of early American history and recently revised and expanded the second volume, We the People, Birth of a Nation which presents American history from the mouths of the Founders, complete with the full historical documents that they labored over.

Now, educational boards across the U.S. are condoning proselytizing on behalf of Islam using history texts written and edited by Muslims in order to portray Islam in a favorable light.  In many schools, children of unsuspecting parents are being groomed in the five pillars of Islam, must dress in Muslim attire so they can become more culturally sensitive and be forced to visit mosques, all in the name of cultural diversity.

Foreign Relations.  America’s image abroad is probably at the lowest level since the country’s founding.  Obama’s foreign policy is a disaster and his Secretaries of State (Clinton & Kerry) were and are inept and pathetic.  Obama’s apologetic and appeasement tours and position are an embarrassment and a kick in the face to the Founding Fathers and all those patriots who valiantly fought and died for the freedom, strength and leadership that America has provided to the world.  It’s no secret that Obama despises American “Exceptionalism” and has done everything within his power to diminish America’s once powerful image around the world.

At the same time Obama is destroying American exceptionalism he works hard at legitimizing the tyrants of Cuba, Iran and other tyrant-led countries.  While he is busy patronizing the tyrants of the world he has virtually ignored the relationships and alliances with countries in the Western hemisphere.

According to the 2015 Open Doors report on world terrorism, 2014 was the worst year for persecution of Christians.  However, the “leader of the free world”, Mr. Obama, has said virtually nothing and done virtually nothing to confront it or the Islamic terrorists that are behind the overwhelming majority of it.

High Level Corruption.  Just about every presidential administration has a scandal or two during their presidency, but usually such lapses in judgment do not affect American lives and freedom.  Enter, once again, President Obama.  Scandals and corruption associated with him and his Whitehouse team are non-ending and just about everyone of them have severely impacted the lives and freedoms of the majority of Americans.

  • Fast & Furious gun-running which put American lives at risk, especially along the Mexican border states by putting high-powered weapons into the hands of known drug lords and, at least in two known instances, resulted in the murder of U.S. border patrol agents.
  • The Benghazi assault on our unprotected outpost that allowed Ambassador Stevens and three others to be murdered because Obama & Hillary Clinton just did not see the need for adequate protection. Then when it is attacked and overwhelmed by obvious (to everyone else) Islamic jihadists, tried to blame the attack on an obscure internet video that practically no one ever saw or heard of; then lied repeatedly to Americans and the world about their despicable behavior and disregard for the safety of Americans serving abroad. See my post on “Was Ambassador Stevens Assassinated?”
  • The IRS targeting scandal where Obama and his hirelings authorized the use of the IRS to target conservative groups and prevent them from raising monies for the 2012 presidential campaign. Shameful; despicable; scandalous; criminal. But no one’s in jail. Not even one indictment.
  • The NSA spying outrage where millions of private conversations and data bases were violated for nefarious purposes, all in the name of “national security” but really to keep tabs on Obama’s opponents.
  • The Veteran’s Administration debacle of disgusting and inhuman treatment of thousands of U.S. veterans. Admittedly, not all on Obama’s watch, but seemed to intensify under his administration.
  • Voter Fraud. How else would you explain 110% of voters in some precincts voting for Obama or 100% of all precincts in Philadelphia voting for Obama, or electronic voting machines around the country “mysteriously” switching Republican votes to Democratic ones?

Well, you get the picture.  There are more Obama scandals then I care to take time to write about—particularly those that involve violations of the U.S. Constitution.  That alone would take a book of several hundred pages.  The list of Obama’s abuses of his office and public trust seems to be just about endless.  The sad thing is that most Americans are clueless and they will not understand the impact of this president on American freedoms, prosperity and national security until many years later.

National Security.  Under Obama’s “leadership” America’s military has become smaller than before World War II and considerably weaker.  According to U.S. Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, the U.S. Army only has two brigades (6,000-10,000 troops) that are combat ready.  Under Obama as Commander-in-Chief, military morale has plummeted, while military deaths due to suicide has steadily increased since he took office to the point where, starting in 2012, military deaths from suicide exceeded those from combat.  In 2012 alone 524 U.S. servicemen and women committed suicide, and at a rate far more than those among the much larger civilian population.  In addition, Obama has purged the military of over 200 top leaders and given “pink slips” to over 500 career military leaders.  Of the $1 trillion in sequester cuts at the end of 2013 by Obama and Congress, over half was absorbed by the military at a time when America needs military strength at its peak.  Medal of Honor decorated, Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, stated, “There is no doubt he [Obama] is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him” (see Revelation 18 and the fate of America, page 288).

Although Obama trumpets that America has never been safer, the truth is, America has never been more vulnerable.  His catastrophic decision to prematurely pull out of Iraq against all military advice has created the meteoric rise of the Islamic terrorist group, ISIS—a group that Obama cannot seem to bring himself to effectively encounter and annihilate despite their horrific acts of butchery in the name of their god.

On January 22, 2009, two days after being sworn in to “faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”, President Obama issued an executive order to close the Gitmo terrorist detention camp in Cuba within a year.  Although he did not succeed, he has released almost 100 Islamic terrorists so they can pursue their terrorist efforts against the United States. Many of those released are now leading or fighting with terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere.  In 2014 alone, Obama released 28 suspected Islamic terrorists.  Follow-up on GITMO detainees released shows that at least 30% re-enter the battlefield to carry out more terror attacks.

President Barack Obama having not succeeded in keeping his promise to close Gitmo within a year of becoming president is now resorting to a different tactic. He is releasing Gitmo inmates, and not just any Gitmo terrorist, but top Taliban intelligence official who kept Stinger missiles and uranium at his farm. But it even gets worse than this. The Afghans gave “security guarantees” that there is no requirement this uranium terrorist and 3 others to be held in prison and they are said to be likely sent home to their families.

The uranium terrorist is Mohammed Zahir, who was also to top it all off, a leading Taliban weapons supplier, according to his official Guantanamo file, leaked three years ago to The Telegraph by the Wikileaks hacker group (Source: Shoebat Foundation, December 20, 2014).

On September 23, 2014, speaking before the United Nations, President Obama (with a straight face) announced that the world was a lot safer now since he took office.  “As a result of this [international security] work and cooperation with allies and partners, the world is more stable than it was five years ago.”  Really?  Does this man live on this planet?  Threats from terrorists—principally Islamic terrorists—has NEVER been greater.  Just ask any one of the hundreds of millions of Jews and Christians around the world who are in daily fear of persecution, torture and murder.  Just ask the thousands of U.S. military parents, spouses and relatives of the thousands of men and women who have died under the Obama administration trying to fight a restricted and unwinnable (because Obama doesn’t want to win the) war against Muslim terrorists or the survivors of those thousands of brave military personnel who could not take it any longer under this “Commander-in-Chief” and committed suicide from Post Traumatic Stress or lack of committed leadership to a winning strategy.

Since September 11, 2001, Muslim terrorists have committed 24,826 non-military deadly attacks around the world (Source: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/thelist.htm).  In 2011 alone, Muslim terrorists killed an estimated 12,533 people (Source: National Counterterrorism Center).  Since Obama took office in 2009 there have been at least 20 deadly Muslim terrorist attacks in America.  However, President Obama insists that such daily terror is just the “senseless violence of a few.”  Just in the last three months of 2014, Islamic terrorists carried out almost 900 attacks, killing almost 8,000 people and wounding thousands more.  But the world is safer now that Obama is at the helm.

On January 12, 2015, the U.S. military’s Central Command Twitter account was hacked by either ISIS members or sympathizers who sent terror messages to the U.S. military.  But we’re secure.  No threat here.

President Obama and members of his administration have repeatedly disclosed national secrets of the U.S. and its allies.   Perhaps the most infamous was the disclosure of members of Seal Team 6 who were responsible for annihilating Osama Bin Laden on May 1, 2011.  The very next day, Vice President Joe Biden, in an act of treason, “outed” the Team to the world.  Three months late, on August 6, 30 members of Seal Team 6, on another mission in Afghanistan, had their helicopter shot down.  All were killed, as were eight Afghanis on board.

The Obama administration seems to spend more time and effort placating and empowering the tyrannical terrorists of the world like Iran, Russia, China, Cuba and Islamic terrorists worldwide than they do confronting them and minimizing their threat to America and the world.

While Obama touts his delusional safe world he decimates America’s borders and our border patrol, making them ineffective.  Not long ago an American trucker driving a truck across the border from Mexico to America videoed his border crossing experience.  As he pulled up to the American border guard, the guard asked the driver if he was the only one on board.  The trucker said, “Why, does it matter?”  The border guard said, “Not anymore” and waved the driver through without any further questions and no inspection.  In many places along the southern U.S. border, border agents have been disarmed or made to pull back to 70 miles from the border.  When they were able to provide some semblance of border security, for the first time (in 2014) they apprehended more non-Mexicans than Mexicans.  And, it has been well documented by border agents and county sheriffs along the border that Muslims are crossing the border without much impediment.

Update, January 24, 2015.  As Obama “fiddles” the Mideast burns.  Today, Libya is in turmoil; Egypt still unstable; Yemen has fallen into chaos; Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and Lebanon are being overtaken by Al Qaeda & ISIS; Iran has been emboldened in its nuclear program; America’s support of Israel has been weakened while Hamas has been strengthened by Obama and America’s ally, the King of Saudi Arabia has died leaving an uncertain future in U.S.-Saudi relations.  Under Obama the Middle East has declined into chaos and Islamic terrorism.  But, the deceiver-in chief of America says the world has never been safer, so it must be true.

The Enemy Within.  As if this brazen weakening of American security were not enough, Obama has stacked his administration with known members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood, including serving in the Department of Homeland Security. In the past year it has been widely reported (by responsible media) that there are simulated cell phone “towers” popping up all over America.  These cell phone data interceptors are collecting the cell phone calls and data of millions of Americans.  Who is doing it?  The FBI, CIA, Pentagon?  No, none of the reasonably suspected culprits.  It’s the Obama “Justice” Department.  Why?  Supposedly to catch that one in a billion call by a terrorist using certain catch words or phrases.  In the meantime the collective freedom of speech of millions of law-abiding U.S. citizens is being severely compromised. Under Obama the Feds have become the enemy of the people.

Race Relations.  President Obama said race relations since he took office in 2009 have gotten better.  In a Fox News poll of December 7-9, 62% said it has gotten worse under Obama, only 19% said it has become better.  Obama’s alliances and support of black agitators like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson heighten the black-white divide.  The man in the Whitehouse has clearly shown his prejudicial side, as has his Justice Department cohort, Eric Holder.  While they both are ready to jump into a suspected white-on-black assault, they are no-shows on any one of the thousands of documented black-on-white assaults and murders, particularly committed by black thugs “playing” the “knock-out” game of punching out the lights of unsuspecting men, women, the disabled and elderly.  The Obama DOJ believes and practices selective prosecution. When members of the Black Panthers intimated white voters in Philadelphia during the 2008 election, Holder refused to investigate or bring charges.  When thousands of blacks rioted and torched Ferguson, Missouri after a grand jury decided that Michael Brown was killed in self-defense by a white police officer, rather than support that decision, Holder implied that justice was denied and is now threatening a Civil Rights suit against the officer and gave credence and justification for the rioting.  When the New Black Panthers recently threatened to target police officers for assassination, not a peep was heard from Holder or Obama.

Poverty.  The poverty rate in the U.S. is 15.7%, two percentage points higher than when Obama took office.  Some parts of the country, like Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina and Tennessee have once thriving cities with poverty rates between 27-35%.  This is certainly not the sign of a full economic recovery that Obama boasts about.  The truth is that 45 million Americans still live in poverty and the percentage of Americans in that situation is three percentage points higher than before Obama took office.

Health Care.  If you do not know by now that the (Un)Affordable Care Act or Obamacare is a disaster and will destroy American health care, then, once again, you have not been paying attention.  The law that Nancy Pelosi said they just had to pass to find out what was in it, is neither affordable (except for the poor) nor very caring.  People are losing their doctors, their health care providers, their affordable premiums (as AFC premiums skyrocket), and one poll disclosed that 70% of doctors plan to leave their profession in the next few years.  Add to this mess the millions of illegal immigrants that will be added to the health care system who will get free health care, thanks to the U.S. taxpayer, and you can imagine what health care in the U.S. will be like in a short couple of years.

Religious Freedom.  Although Obama and team sees no need to temper the hateful rhetoric coming out of America’s mosques, they seem to seize every opportunity or support local and regional court assaults on the freedoms of Christians and Jews to freely practice their religions or operate godly businesses.  You can read more about this assault on Christianity in Revelation 18 and the fate of America.

Adherence to the Law.  Obama and his team have violated the U.S. Constitution so frequently that it is like we do not have a constitution anymore.  There is no longer the separation of powers so wisely established by the Founding Fathers.  Obama is Tyrant and King:  he makes the laws; decides which laws should be enforced and which he can ignore; he can wave his magic pen and decree whatever he wants to be so, no matter how many lawmakers or members of the public object.  Of course, he is not entirely to blame.  Members of Congress have sat on the collective bums through it all, saying and doing nothing for fear that they might face some kind of recrimination for coming against or even impeaching the “first” pseudo-black president.

Final Word (Sort of).  Now, after all that has been said you might think I am prejudice or anti-somebody, but I’m not.  I just believe in calling a spade a spade (no pun or racial slur intended).  Even Jesus called out the Pharisees when he saw how they treated the people and misled them.  I said in 2008 that America would regret the day that they elected Barack Hussein Obama.  Unfortunately, to date, I do not think I have been proven wrong.

Wake Me When It’s Over.  So, where is the public and Congressional outrage?  Where are the religious leaders falling to their knees and begging God for mercy and leading their congregations in repentance and turning to God in true worship and righteousness?  If we think some courageous person or persons are going to step forward with a magic solution that will rectify this mess, we are deceiving ourselves.  America is far beyond effective human intervention.  Only God Almighty is up to the job, but He will not intervene unless His people repent and fully return to Him; turn from their wicked ways and stand upon His righteousness.  So, wake me when the church decides it has had enough and is willing to take a stand and stops laying down to be trampled upon by anyone who chooses to do so.

Well, I could write a book.  Oh, wait I did,  Revelation 18 and the fate of America

NOTE:  I have purposely not included a host of references here because they are in my book, Revelation 18 and the fate of America.  Also, I would encourage you to take the time to do your own research.

America’s Disaster Called Obama

October 10, 2014

Now Obamanites will be horrified and outraged at the above title and my sympathies and condolences go out to you for your unmitigated blindness and desire to continue to live in your own la-la land of unreality and political correctness.  Those who voted for Obama the first time might be excused for their ignorance and passion to see the first person of color or “black” man elected to the highest office in the country, but to vote for him a second time after his first four years was an unmitigated disaster is inexcusable.

It is a shame that America’s first “experiment” with electing a “minority” has proven time and again to be seriously detrimental to the survival of the U.S.—NOT because Obama is of the minority class, but because he is just horrific as a qualified leader.  While some think Mr. Obama is inept as a leader, he is, in reality, quite adept at accomplishing his catastrophic agenda and that of the Democratic Party.

Everywhere a discerning person looks—and I mean discerning and not a blind, dyed in the wool follower—everything that has Obama’s mark on it has been destructive to America’s and American’s well-being.  I know most of the talking heads on television and the columns and editorials in newspapers and online that tries to pass and impress as honest journalism still oozes with Obama superlatives and “successes”.  And, NO, I am not a Fox News junky, although they seem to be one of the few left that believes the American people are owed the truth no matter how painful it might be.  [By-the-way, for you Fox News haters, Fox pulverizes every other news network in every time slot by more than 4 to 1 in viewership.] Unlike most, I spend hours researching original sources from all over the world, not just the evening news or conservative sources.

It is hard to know where to start with reviewing Obama’s record.  From my view (as an American historian) there has never been a more corrupt, deceitful and shameless administration in America’s Whitehouse than the current one.  A president and an administration that so blatantly abuses and overrides the United States of America’s Constitution and breaks the law of the land at the highest levels.  While Obama proclaims to the public that it is the Republicans that are preventing him from getting anything through Congress, the truth is that he not only refuses to work with the opposite party, but that there are so many scandals, abuses of power and perjuries before investigative committees, that Congress has no time to contract the people’s business.

Right from the start, President Obama and his Democratic cohorts, such as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, with straight faces, lied to the American people about the disastrous health care program that would destroy America’s top flight health care system and turn it into a third world program.  Today, even as I write, it has been announced that another 13 states (CT, DE, MD, MA, MN, MS, NY, RI, NV, NM, VA, VT & WA) and the District of Columbia will be terminating several hundred thousand health policies by month end because they cannot meet the ridiculous requirements of Obamacare.  Obama himself has violated his own health care law over 30 times since its passage, changing, delaying the law or exempting favored groups or political supporters.  It is a reckless and impeachable violation of the law.

As a minority president that many had hoped would heal any remaining racial divides in the country, instead of healing he has been the most racist president in our history, using the power of his office and his justice department to bring about increased tensions and silent permission for uncontrolled racial violence against non-blacks.  Obama readily interjects himself into any perceived injustice against blacks but turns a deaf ear and blind eye against black violence against other blacks or non-blacks.

When he was running for his first term of office on the national scene Obama boldly proclaimed that his administration would be the most “transparent” in the country’s history.  Instead it has become the most closed, secretive, deceptive and deliberately obfuscating administration in the history of the country.  It is so bad that people are beginning to realize—not only in the U.S. but around the world—that there is nothing that Obama or his administration says that can be trusted or relied on as the truth.  ALL of Obama’s decisions and calculations are measured in political gain and his vision of “transforming” America, not in what is best for Americans.

By now, even among his ardent supporters, it should be crystal clear that Obama has no interest in doing what is best for America or in truly protecting Americans at home or abroad.  I know that is a harsh assessment, but the evidence is overwhelming.  How else can a rational person explain his ignoring and even abetting a wide open border on the southern line with Mexico at a time when illegals, criminals, gang members, drug traffickers, Islamic terrorists and diseases are flooding across the border and he does nothing—NOTHING!!!!  He sees no need to provide our embassies with adequate protection in hostile environments, and in the case of the terrorist attack on a deliberately unprotected Benghazi, has the audacity to lie to the American people repeatedly about the cause of the attack.

Since he was elected to office, Obama has shown a clear and strong propensity and aversion to confronting or doing battle with America’s enemies.  He is more interested in aiding and abetting the enemy than conquering them.  How else does one explain his obsession with closing the Guantanamo Bay (GITMO) prison camp for Islamic terrorists, letting most of them go free, including the ISIS (Iraq, Syria Islamic State) leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the author of thousands of Islamic atrocities in the Middle East and other places known and unknown.

How else does one explain why Obama was so eager to release five notorious Islamic terrorists from GITMO in exchange for a known U.S. military deserter in Afghanistan and yet refuses to lift his adept hand and call the president of Mexico and demand the release of an American Marine hero who has been illegally held in a Mexican prison since April.

How else can you explain his willingness to vacate Iraq against ALL advice from his military leaders, thus exposing Iraq and remaining American civilians and military to the onslaught of ISIS and other Islamic terrorists?  It is now been revealed by his own military advisors that Obama was told about the growing threat of ISIS over two years ago and that he needed to take action, but he refused.  Now that ISIS has taken control of eastern Syria and northern Iraq and has grown from a rag-tag group of several hundred to well over 30,000, now Obama orders a few pin-pricks in the way of a few meaningless air strikes each day as ISIS continues its unimpeded march toward Bahgdad.  As far as I am concerned the responsibility for the ISIS atrocities and every beheading needs to be laid at the feet of Obama.

In his newly released memoir, Worthy Fights, former Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta wrote: “But the President’s team at the White House pushed back [against military advice], and the differences occasionally became heated. . . .  and those on our side viewed the White House as so eager to rid itself of Iraq that it was willing to withdraw rather than lock in arrangements that would preserve our influence and interests.”

It has become increasingly clear to most observers that Obama is much more interested in the perks of his office than its responsibilities.  He would much rather be taking multi-million dollar vacations at taxpayers’ expense, golfing, shooting hoops in the “hood”or off  self-aggrandizing campaigning across the country touting his fictitious  political accomplishments.  How else can you explain his totally insensitive and callous handling of the news of an American being beheaded by ISIS?  He apparently was reluctantly dragged off the golf course to make a few second statement and then hurriedly returned to his real passion and focus of the day, his golf game.

I wrote in a blog the week before the 2012 presidential election, that if Obama was re-elected, Islamic terrorism would skyrocket.  Sadly, that has become true, because Obama has no interest in stopping it and seems to even sympathize with it and its perpetrators.

Toward the beginning of this blog I said it is hard to know where to begin with Obama’s disastrous exploits, but it is equally difficult to know where to end.  There have been a multitude of books written on this very subject from an equal multitude of vantage points.

There is, of course, his destruction of the U.S. military to the point that it is no longer combat ready according to military leaders.  There is his firing of over 200 military leaders and giving “pink slips” to over 500 more because he does not like them.  Then there is the economy which he says has never been better.  But the latest statistics (despite the government’s fabricated jobs report and unemployment knock down, is that 24% of those in their prime working years of 25-54 are not working.  The “labor participation” rate continues its metric slide from 66% when Obama took office to 62.7% last month, the lowest rate in 36 years.  In a recent October poll, 43% of Americans think the economy is getting worse and only 24% say they are better off since Obama took office.  Of course, the burdensome National Debt that keeps skyrocketing will have a yet to be measured negative impact of the nation’s economy.  When Barack Hussein Obama took office in early 2009, the National Debt was about $10.7 trillion.  As I write, the debt is nearing $18 trillion and will likely exceed that level by year-end.  Before Obama leaves office, he and his Democratic supporters will have increased the National Debt more than all his presidential predecessors combined back to 1940.  Now, granted, the Debt is not all his fault but that of many previous Congresses that put in place major spending bills with little or no financial resources to back them.  But Obama has willfully accelerated the wanton spending that is so typical of careless politicians.

But let us not ignore Obama’s attack on religious freedom and the foundational biblical moral code for families and human life in general.  Obama’s unwavering support of gay rights, abortion rights and all other types of perverse “rights” that undermine the very moral fabric of America is well documented.  His support of moral Christian values (he does still profess to be a Christian) and the American family is suspect, if not non-existent.

Now, there are those who say that it is not Christian or biblical to criticize the nation’s top leader.  But that is not true or biblically supported.  The Old Testament is full of God’s prophets and watchmen who were called of God to point out false leaders or those who were leading Israel astray or down an evil path.  Not all of the world’s leaders, including America’s, are ordained by God.  Some are clearly evil and that God allows because that is what the people want.  Israel clamored for a king, so God gave them a succession of kings, the vast majority of whom were evil tyrants and not interested in following God.

In the New Testament, even Jesus called out the evil political and religious leaders of his day.  He minced no words but spoke to the heart of the matter and the evil perpetrators.

For those of you who are still ensnared by Obamamania, my sincere condolences.  I pray you wake up from your malaise and ignorance of the facts before it is too late.

Update

October 11.  It is now being reported that the U.S., Turkey, Iran and Saudi Arabia are in a secret deal to not aid the Kurds in the Kurdish city of Kobani that is under siege from ISIS and about to fall.  Read more here.  If this is true, Obama needs to be immediately brought up on charges of treason for aiding and abetting America’s enemies.

How Evil Works & Prevails

September 5, 2014

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Edmund Burke (1729-1797), an Irish born American, who was a staunch supporter of the American colonies’ revolution against Britain’s King George III, is credited with the above quote.  As a statesman, author, orator and political theorist he is also remembered as the founder of Anglo-American conservatism.

Burke clearly understood how evil arises and prevails among a body of people.  Today, in America, and around the world, it seems that the majority of people are ignorant, duped or just do not care about the evil in their midst.

The Judeo-Christian Bible is the standard of absolute truth for hundreds of millions of people in the United States and worldwide.  It clearly defines right from wrong; good from evil.  However, in today’s world, absolute truth is quickly falling along the wayside, even among those that claim to adhere to the biblical view of good and evil.

There are, of course, many books, sermons and teachings by renowned Bible teachers and authors.  However, there are three little known publications that offer tremendous insight into the subject of evil and how it creeps into the arena of mankind and gains a strong foothold.

The first is a short book (123 pp.) by former British evangelist and Baptist pastor, T. Austin-Sparks (1888-1971), called Strong In The Day Of Battle.  It is a powerful book on spiritual warfare and how to identify and overcome evil in ones midst.  As far as I know it is only available through Emmanuel Church, 12,000 East 14th Street, Tulsa, OK 74128-5016 or by calling (918) 838-1385.  It is made available free as arte other T. Austin-Sparks books.

The second is an equally powerful and insightful book, The Omega Prophecy, by Pastor David Anderson.  Written in 1998, it is available on Amazon.com.  This book never quite caught on but it should be a best seller and read by everyone concerned about world events today.  It is quite prophetic in foreseeing the rise of evil and terrorism as it exists today.

The third is, Mighty Prevailing Prayer, by Wesley L. Duewel.  Published in 1990, it has been edited and re-released in 2013.  The entire 44 chapter book is an essential study on the importance of prevailing prayer.  Chapters 34-44 describe the strategies of Satan and the importance of spiritual warfare to defeat him.

It is the Bible and the insight of these three authors that I rely on to present the Tactics and Strategies of the Devil and the ones he uses to promote and establish evil among mankind.

Tactics/Strategies of the Devil (The Evil One)

Anti-Christian; Anti-Jew.  Evil hates and despises Christians and Jews and would do anything to diminish their influence and wipe them off the face of the earth.

For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist (2 John 1:7).

Tyrannical & Intimidating.  (blog link) Evil is bellicose, confrontational, demanding and insisting on getting its way, no matter what the cost to others.  It is dictatorial, exercising totalitarian principles.

Cunning & Deceptive.   Evil is cunning, crafty and always plotting to cause disruption and chaos in the lives of others.  The more unsettled it can make society, the more Evil rejoices.    Evil diverts attention from its evil plans and deceives people into believing that a lie is the truth.  It repeatedly tries to convince others that bad is good and good is bad.

Treasonous.  Evil denies culpability while scheming to undermine the safety and security of others.  Evil puts others in harm’s way, turning a blind eye to obvious threats to personal safety.  It subverts what is best for others in the interest of a personal agenda, thus denying any allegiance or loyalty to others; it is treasonous.  God hates treason and those that commit treason, especially in violation of His word and His covenant agreement upon which the United States was founded (see Ezekiel 17:19-20).

Destroyer.  Evil is a destroyer.  It seeks to destroy what is good; what is ordained by God.  It seeks to destroy the family unit; tear it apart and cause mayhem.  It seeks to destroy innocent life and life that is still in the womb.

The lion has come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of nations is on his way. He has gone forth from his place to make your land desolate. Your cities will be laid waste, without inhabitant (Jeremiah 4:7).

Lies & Damnable Lies.  Evil pontificates and proliferates such outright lies as, “The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been,” when the intelligent and wary observer can easily see and conclude that the world is going “to hell in a hand basket”.   Evil perpetrates the perception that all is well when it knows full well that hardship and destruction are on its way.

Jesus, in speaking to the Pharisees, said: You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it (John 8:44).

Divide & Conquer.  Evil seeks to divide and conquer; to pit one person against another; one group against another.  By creating disunity and sowing discord, evil scatters, demoralizes and weakens the opposition.

But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand (Matthew 12:25). 

Creator of Crises.  Evil seeks to cause turmoil and enjoys creating constant conflict. It is all too ready to jump into the fray of a confrontation and take sides before it knows the facts and thus perverts justice and the rule of law.

Author of Confusion.  Evil is the author of confusion.  The more turmoil and disruption it can cause, the better in its plan to weaken society and the individual.

For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints (1 Corinthians 14:33).

Where God is not allowed to exist or His influence greatly reduced, there is no peace, only confusion and mis-guidance.  Without God, sin runs rampant and society collapses.

Lawless.  Evil does not feel constrained by law.  Evil is lawless.  Evil is above the law.  The law is for others; for fools, but not for Evil. 

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.  And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.  The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,  and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.  And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,  that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness (2 Thessalonians 2:7-12).

Enslavement.   Evil seeks to enslave the populace; to take away freedoms and self-determination and self-will; to gain control over the masses by making them dependent upon sources and means that evil deems best.

Falsely Accuses & Antagonistic.   Evil accuses others of wrong-doing, but constantly and consistently makes excuses for itself.  Evil blames everything and everyone else for what goes wrong in and around its life and experience.

Obfuscates the Truth.   Evil sees no absolute truth, only shades of gray or what can be manipulated into false truth for evil to obtain its objective and get its way.  Evil constantly calls evil good & good, evil.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight!

 Woe to men mighty at drinking wine, Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink, who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away justice from the righteous man!

Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, And the flame consumes the chaff, So their root will be as rottenness, And their blossom will ascend like dust; Because they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts, And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.  (Isaiah 5:20-24)

Narcissistic & Prideful.  Evil focuses on itself; is prideful and arrogant.  Evil takes credit for the good, but denies responsibility for anything bad or displeasing.  Prideful Evil cannot and will not admit to any culpability or take any responsibility for anything that goes wrong or is wrong under its watch.

For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there (James 3:16).

Usurpation.  Evil is a usurper of all that is good; all that has been established for the benefit of the whole.   It seizes power by force that rightfully belongs to the people.  This power grab is illegal and without the agreement of the majority and in violation of established law.

Masquerades as an Angel of Light.   Evil disguises itself as an Angel of Light; a deliverer from ones woes and wants.  It promises to satisfy everyone’s  needs, wants and desires; usually at the expense of others.  And no wonder!  For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14). 

But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,  who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality;  but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek;  but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek (Romans 2:5-10).

This, of course, is not a complete list of the characteristics of Evil, but it gives you an idea of how Evil slips into the life of an individual or society.

If the Lord be God, follow Him!  But if Baal [false god], then follow him!

1 Kings 18:21

 

 

 

 

 

America’s King

August 26, 2014

(Author’s note: It has been some time since I posted a blog on this site.  Partly due to travelling and spending the best part of a year writing my 18th book, Revelation 18 and the fate of America;  but also because I am keenly aware that there are a host of bloggers and journalists that are more “plugged in” to the daily happenings in the United States and around the world.  Nevertheless, I do, from time to time like to express what is on my mind and how I see things before or as they develop.  So, I blog on whenever moved to do so for those who care to indulge in my musings and viewpoint.)

In the Old Testament of the Bible (specifically 1 Samuel 8) there is the story of how Israel transitioned from the period of mostly righteous judges to a period of mostly godless kings.  The whole history of Israel, according to the Bible, is one of Israel’s almost incessant rebellions against God and turning to the idols of their neighbors; followed by God’s judgment upon the Israelites; followed often by the repentance of the Israelites and their begging God for His mercy and deliverance from their enemies.

After almost 400 years of being guided in the ways of God by 15 judges, the Israelites now residing in the Land of Canaan—their Promised Land—were not happy.  They wanted to be just like all their neighboring peoples (who were their idol-worshipping enemies) and be ruled by a king; a tyrant; a dictator.

When Samuel, the last to judge Israel and a prophet of God, was aged he appointed his two sons, Joel and Abijah, to judge Israel.  However, they turned out to be wicked and dishonest and perverted justice.  So the people petitioned Samuel to appoint a king to rule over them.  Samuel did not like the idea and did not want to comply, so he sought the voice of God.

God responded and told Samuel: “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them” (1 Samuel 8:7; NKJV).  The Lord God went on to tell Samuel that despite all the blessings He had poured out upon Israel and all the times He had delivered them out of the hands of their enemies; out of all their difficulties, they still wanted a fallible human being to rule over them.

“Now, therefore,” God warned Samuel, “heed their voice.  However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them” (vs. 9).  God told Samuel to tell the people that they would not like to be under the authority of a king.  This king that they clamored for would make their sons and daughters subservient to all his wishes.  He would enslave them and take the best of their businesses and resources for his own purposes and desires.  “And you will cry out in that day,” warned Samuel, “because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the Lord will not hear you in that day” (vs. 18).

Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, ‘No, but we will have a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles” (vss. 19-20).

Flash Forward

Now, let us flash forward about three millennia to the current state of affairs in the United States of America.  America, despite the incessant howls of various progressives, liberals, atheists and what-have-you, WAS founded upon the most unique and enduring biblical principles and ordnances of the Judeo-Christian world.  Although many would dispute that, the fact is that it IS indisputable and historically accurate.  The American constitution is like no other in the history of the world, dividing the rule of law among three branches of government:  Executive, Judicial and Legislative.  The Founding Fathers prescribed it that way so that pride and tyranny would not reside in any branch and particularly not in the Executive or presidential arm of government.

However, during the 2007-2008 U.S. presidential campaign there arose out of virtually nowhere Barack Hussein Obama who promised his enamored and tearfully bleary-eyed masses and mesmerized them with the slogan, “change we can believe in”.  He promised that they could have it all with just a little re-distribution of wealth from the haves to the have-nots.  And the faithful wailed, “Hallelujah!”  He promised them full government transparency during his reign.  And his ardent followers chanted, “Amen!”  He promised his adherents greater personal freedom and his vassals screamed, “Preach it, brother!”  He promised health care for all at a lower cost using their same insurance and doctors and the enraptured squealed, “Give me more!”  He promised to bring America’s troops home and create a safer homeland, and the dazzled pierced his ears as they screeched, “Amen, Amen, Amen!”

Now, despite the fact that little was known about this “savior” of mankind, the politically blind, uninformed, historically ignorant and those obsessed with seeing a semi-black man in high office lined up kinder-style in support of a man who would lead the free world.  What was known about this man who would “rule” over them?  Absolutely nothing, or at best very little.  Everything that was important to know about Mr. Obama was sealed from public eye and disclosure.   Where he was really born is still a mystery.  I know, some still cling to the myth that he posted his “real” birth certificate online.  Really?  It has clearly been determined by forensic investigators to be a crude fraud but the mainstream media refuse to report it.  All of his college and law school records have been sealed.  Why?  What is he hiding?  It appears that his enthralled minions could not see beyond his blackness and discover his unvetted weaknesses, lack of true experience in almost any realm that is required of a sitting president and his truly diabolical plans for the America he detests.

Fool Me Once

The long-standing axiom, “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me,” sure applies to the Obama faithful who not only voted for him in 2008, but returned to vote for him in 2012 after he clearly proved his ineptness and fully disclosed his scheme to “fundamentally transform America” into his own image of her.

So, what did Obama’s faithful and the rest of the subjects of America’s first “ruler” get from the bargain basement of leader-dom?  In addition to an unknown entity of leadership, the majority of Americans (including some of his enlightened former followers) realize that in Barack Hussein Obama, the country has successfully not only voted in once, but twice, the country’s first narcissistic tyrant who avoids, subordinates and violates the U.S. Constitution every chance he gets.  Apparently Mr. Obama did not study or teach constitutional law in order to understand how to uphold it but rather how to subvert it.  He has so weakened the U.S. economy through over taxation, government regulations and penalties that thousands of businesses have been forced to close and millions of able-bodied Americans remain unemployed, under-employed or have just plain given up looking for meaningful work.  Along with his ever-increasing welfare agenda for the masses, he has made serfs out of most of his electorate and others who have fallen victim to his nefarious schemes of re-distribution and entitlement.  His administration is not only the least transparent in U.S. history, but he blatantly lies and deceives the American public on a daily basis.  His treasonous behavior and gutless foreign policy and military impotence have cost thousands of U.S. military men and women their lives or body parts.  While Obama pontificates that the world has never been safer, the truth is that the world has not been this much in jeopardy and American lives at risk since World War II.

His spendthrift administration and cohorts in Congress have doubled the national debt to insurmountable levels, thus enslaving the current and many future generations.  He permitted the uncontrolled “quantitative easing” or free printing of U.S. dollars that threatens the purchasing power of every American, thus reducing their standard of living and ability to financially survive.

In king-like fashion, Obama has routinely ignored the U.S. Constitution and rule of law when it suited his purposes and advanced his political and socialistic agenda.  He upholds laws that he favors and ignores or subjugates laws he disagrees with or makes his own laws.  He decries that the do-nothing Congress of Republicans and some Blue Dog Democrats are holding up his agendas.  Thank God!  On the other hand, they have no time to legislate because they are too busy investigating an ever-increasing list of incredible scandals that flood forth from his administration almost weekly.  In addition, the country has witnessed the workings of the most divisive, race-biased president in the history of the country.  While Obama is all too ready to prejudicially jump into the presumption of white on black offences, he cannot and will not be seen or heard from in the thousands of black on white crimes that have proliferated under his watch.

As his ever diminishing number of devotees proclaim, “God Save the King!” those more astute and patriotic shout, “God Have Mercy and Save Us!”

World-class Leadership Lacking in America

September 4, 2013

It has been several months since I posted on this blog.  Trying not to get distracted by the inept leadership in the Whitehouse and Congress, I have been trying to focus my time and efforts on a new book.  However, even though I know others are far more informed and articulate than myself in addressing various issues of importance, I find myself unable to resist offering some perspective on the Syrian crisis and America’s pending military action.

It is no surprise that, unlike former President George Bush, our current president is unable to muster any international support for his recommended military assault on Syria.  Why would anyone of any degree of sanity trust our president.  He has a strong history of being a habitual liar; a deceiver and one who has no qualms about releasing sensitive security information of our allies and ourselves to the enemy of mankind.  His foreign policy (or lack thereof) in the Middle East and elsewhere has been an unmitigated disaster that has thrown that region of the world into utter chaos and instability.

Not even our trusted allies of the past will support Obama’s planned attack on Syria because they know that he is an undisciplined, feckless, narcissistic leader who cannot be trusted or has the wisdom and understanding to deal with the complex issues facing Israel and Muslim-dominated countries in the Middle East.  Since taking over as Commander-in-Chief of the United States military, Obama has systematically weakened every branch of the military; created chaos and increased bloodshed in Iraq; carried out a disastrous war strategy in Afghanistan; created a destabilized Libya and Egypt and openly supplied factions of the Muslim Brotherhood with arms and millions in cash.  Why would any nation in favor of freedom support such a treasonous leader, even if he is president of the United States?

If America does attack Syria and the U.S. Congress is complicit with its approval, it will be a disaster for America.  While I sympathize with the plight of the Syrian people, the time for military action has long past.  And with Obama openly telling the world before hand what our military strategy will be, it has given Syria’s Assad plenty of time to re-deploy his equipment and forces to civilian areas.  Have the members of Congress learned nothing about Obama’s weak and ineffective Middle East diplomacy?  Why would they expect any different outcome in this case?  The only thing that an attack on Syria will accomplish at this stage would be opening up justification for more terrorist attacks on Americans and American targets worldwide (including in the U.S.); create even greater instability in the Middle East; put Israel at an even greater risk of attack from its Islamic neighbors; embolden Iran to participate in the conflict (and perhaps other Islamic countries) and accelerate their nuclear program; and further exasperate the economies of the world.

A note to Congress:  An unconstitutional president can only be expected to do unconstitutional things.  At a time in history when what American needs most is divine guidance of Almighty God, we have a president who would rather go campaigning, go on vacation, play golf or shoot hoops then to go before God in prayer and supplication.  In fact, we have a president who does not even honor the traditional Day of Prayer every year but makes it a point to honor Ramadan, the fasting holiday of Muslims who have vowed to destroy America.  And, he has filled his cabinet of advisors with Muslims, some of whom are active with the Muslim Brotherhood.

America is in deep trouble on many fronts and instead of having a bold, patriotic leader who seeks God, we have re-elected a person who is either intentionally seeking to destroy America or who is totally incapable or inept at leading the country forward out of its many predicaments.

Update:  September 5.  Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted yesterday 10-7 in favor of a U.S. military strike against Syria.  However, Congressional representatives’ offices are being flooded with calls from their constituents at a rate of 499-1 against such a strike.  Will they listen?  Why would we follow a commander-in-chief into such a dangerous conflict when a host of scandals (Fast & Furious; Benghazi; NSA spying; IRS abuse and a myriad of constitutional abuses) have not been resolved or anyone held accountable?  Are our duly elected representatives that dense, or what?

Presidential Impeachment

November 21, 2012

Has the time come?  Is it now time for the statesmen and stateswomen of the U.S. House and U.S. Senate to call for the impeachment of President Barack Hussein Obama, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and others who have not only proved over and over again their incompetence, but their betrayal of the safety and security of America and its citizens?  It is now time, before more Americans are needlessly killed or our national security is irreparably compromised or destroyed.

The Constitution, Article II, Section 4:
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

In the impeachment proceedings of former President William Clinton, much of the focus was on what constituted “high crimes and misdemeanors.”  Unlike what one might be led to believe, when the Framers of the U.S. Constitution decided upon the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors” they were not referring to crimes of a severe or “high” nature; that is crimes that were extraordinarily damaging to the country or society.  For this phrase they were drawing upon established British law of the time in which “high crimes” meant  crimes that were committed by people in high authority over others; typically elected officials and magistrates.  The phrase, “high crimes and misdemeanors”, was meant to be a catch-all phrase applicable to those who abused their power of office and was interpreted as for whatever reason whatsoever.  It was meant to include any offense, even if not a criminal offense for the ordinary person or in a civil or criminal court.  In other words, the Framers wanted public officials, those in charge of the public trust, to be held to a much higher standard of conduct than the common person.

Cotesworth Pinckney, who represented South Carolina at the constitutional convention of 1787, referred to “high crimes and misdemeanors” as a betrayal of the public trust.

Alexander Hamilton, a Founding Father, referred to “high crimes and misdemeanors” as . . .those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or, in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust.  They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to the society itself. 

The Constitution, Article I, Section 3: The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.  When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation.  When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside:  And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present.

Judgment in Cases of Impeachments shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust, or Profit under the United States, but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment, and Punishment, according to Law.

Jon Roland, of the Constitution Society, in writing about the impeachment of President Clinton, wrote:  An executive official is ultimately responsible for any failures of his subordinates and for their violations of the oath he and they took, which means violations of the Constitution and the rights of persons. It is not necessary to be able to prove that such failures or violations occurred at his instigation or with his knowledge, to be able, in [Independent Counsel Kenneth] Starr’s words, to “lay them at the feet” of the president [Clinton]. It is sufficient to show, on the preponderance of evidence, that the president was aware of misconduct on the part of his subordinates, or should have been, and failed to do all he could to remedy the misconduct, including termination and prosecution of the subordinates and compensation for the victims or their heirs. The president’s subordinates include everyone in the executive branch, and their agents and contractors. It is not limited to those over whom he has direct supervision. He is not protected by “plausible deniability”. He is legally responsible for everything that everyone in the executive branch is doing[From: Meaning of “High Crimes and Misdemeanorsby Jon Roland, Constitution Society].

Although President Obama has committed numerous impeachable and treasonous offenses (see Why Obama is dangerous), the Benghazi embassy attack and murders should be the absolute last straw.  It is now abundantly clear that the attack was pre-planned and carried out by a group of Islamic terrorists and the CIA staff on the ground in Benghazi knew it and communicated so to the Secretary of State.  The Defense Department and the Whitehouse (aka the President) knew almost immediately that it was a terrorist attack but denied the embassy any form of assistance.  They then, in despicable political coordination lied to the American people for (it now appears) the sole political purpose of preserving Obama’s re-election.  Four Americans savagely murdered; still no one brought to justice or even an adequate investigation; no explanation or truth-telling to the American people over two months after the attack.  This is not only an impeachable offense of the highest order, but it is treasonous and those responsible should be tried in a criminal court as well.

It is about time that our elected officials in the House and Senate disregard their party affiliations and allegiances and get some patriotic backbone and do what is right for the country and its citizens before it is too late.
