Kathleen’s Midterm Reflections

November 4, 2018

I made comparisons before the last election (attached). Trump won hands down, and still does. I switched from Democrat to Republican with Reagan. These are my reasons why Obama, the Clintons and the Democrat Party confirmed my choice to vote Republican again.

  1. Obama stated in a speech before Muslim countries that the U.S. is not a Christian nation. In the same speech he proclaimed that the United States of America would never be at war with Islam as long as he is president, and that America is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. The problem is that Islam IS at war with America and America only ranks 132nd in the world in Muslim population.
  2. Obama demonstrates he has no fear of God Almighty – the Christian God, that is.
  3. When with Christians Obama professed to be a Christian; when with Muslims he identified with them. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on September 7, 2008, Obama referred to his “Muslim faith.” It was Stephanopoulos that had to correct him, “you mean your Christian faith?”
  4. Obama has a hard time quoting the Bible accurately, but can quote verses of the Qur’an at will & in Arabic. He calls the Quran the holy book and the Bible, the Bible.
  5. Numerous times Obama violated and over-rode the U.S. Constitution with unlawful “Executive Orders” and was never held accountable.
  6. In Obama’s campaign speeches he referred to himself as a “Progressive” which is the new Democrat Party political-speak for “socialist”. Obama’s ideas and objectives were baked in hardcore Marxist ideologies. So is that of many current Democrat Party members. Obama’s proclamations that he was going to “fundamentally change America” and “redistribute” our wealth are clear Marxist policies, which continues to be the Democrat platform. He also said to college students that “capitalism doesn’t work, it never has.” Another Marxist principle, but a boldface lie.
  7. Obama, the Clintons and many Democrat lawmakers are anti-Israel and funneled billions of dollars to the Palestinians and other Muslim terrorist organizations and Islamic countries. His justification was that poverty and lack of education were the reasons for terrorism. (not Islam’s ideology)
  8. Obama appointed a number of Muslim Brotherhood operatives (Muslim terrorists) to his cabinet; one in a lead role in the Department of Homeland Security.
  9. Obama and his administration watched the Benghazi attack on our consulate for 13 hours in real time on September 11, 2012 and did absolutely nothing to aid or rescue the Americans there. Despite dozens of requests by the Ambassador & staff for more security before the attack, Obama & Hillary Clinton (then Secretary of State in charge of overseeing the consulate) withdrew security, and all during the attack told military forces to “stand down” (not help), resulting in the death of 4 Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Photos of the “Situation Room” at the White House during the attack showed Obama as a disinterested observer, while Clinton said she went to bed. A pure act of treason by Obama and Clinton. Both blamed the attack on some obscure amateur video that no one saw. To this day there has not been a complete investigation of the incident or anyone held accountable in the Obama administration.
  10. Obama personally commanded that all reference to Muslim or Islamic terrorism be stricken from U.S. Homeland Security and U.S. Military training manuals and communications. For Obama, there was no such thing as an Islamic terrorist; that would be racist, even though Islam is not a race but an ideology. The liberal media followed suit, thus deceiving Americans into believing they were “criminal” acts instead of Islamic terrorist’s acts, and thus the need for gun control.
  11. At the end of the Obama administration in November, 2016 he boldly proclaimed that, “No foreign terrorist organization has successfully planned and executed an attack on our homeland.” The truth: there were 36 such attacks on the U.S. homeland during his watch, killing 116 Americans and wounding 448.
  12. It is likely that under Obama’s two terms, more undocumented Muslims were let into the U.S. than all the previous presidential administrations combined.
  13. When Obama left office he had increased America’s national debt by over $10 trillion, more than ALL his 43 presidential predecessors combined, even though he slashed our military to bare-bone status. The military has previously always been one of the largest, if not the largest part of the budget.
  14. When Hillary Clinton left as Secretary of State, over $6 billion could not be accounted for in her State Department. It is still missing and no one is being held accountable.
  15. Although Obama constantly proclaimed that his administration was the “most transparent” in presidential history. The truth was that he was the ONLY president in U.S. history to have ALL his records sealed so that no one could investigate his past – which was heavily weighted with Marxist-Islamic teaching and activities. And, yes, he NEVER did produce a legal, original birth certificate.
  16. Obama pardoned and set the remaining 9/11 Islamic terrorists free from Gitmo prison, some of whom have re-engaged in terrorist activities against the U.S. He traded 5 such terrorists for Army deserter and traitor, Sgt. Bo Bergdahl, who aligned himself with the Taliban Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan.
  17. Obama, although he had zero military experience, established “Rules of Engagement” for the U.S. military fighting Islamic terrorists abroad that tied our military’s hands and put them in much greater risk of death by requiring our soldiers not to shoot at terrorists unless they were fired upon first. This resulted in many deaths and injuries to our military men and women unnecessarily. U.S. military who broke the Rule were brought up on criminal charges; some are in prison.
  18. Before Obama’s first election, Jim came across a newspaper clipping on the Internet with a picture of a young Obama as one of 3 who started the Socialist Party in Chicago. Soon after it disappeared from the Internet.
  19. Obama DID start the community organizing group, ACORN, which is a militant social activist group that was caught tampering with votes during his first election. They also intimidated Republican voters at polling places.
  20. Obama’s CIA Director, John Brennan, was and is an avowed communist and Muslim. (“John Guandolo [ex-FBI agent] revealed that Brennan had, indeed, converted to Wahhabist Islam while he was CIA station chief in Riyadh. Guandalo quoted Brennan as having said that he “marveled at the majesty of the hajj.”)
  21. The much ballyhooed “Obamacare” was passed without one Congressman reading the bill because the Democrats refused to make available the 2000 page+ bill to Congress or the public. Nancy Pelosi infamously proclaimed, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it and get past the fog of the controversy.” 100% of Democrats did so; 0% of Republicans did. Everything Obama and the Democrats promised about Obamacare turned out to be BIG lies and skyrocketed the cost of health care by 2-3x. While the bill was proclaimed as the heath care panacea for America, the truth is that it was “socialized” medicine designed to destroy the world’s greatest health care system. Despite the bill’s disaster for Americans, Democrats are still pushing it as Affordable Health Care and want it to be restored.
  22. THE TRUTH about the new Democrat Party is that the Clintons, Obamas, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Diane Feinstein, Chuck Schumer, Keith Ellison and many more have proclaimed repeatedly that the Democrat Party of our youth and our parents is now the Progressive Party (definition of a progressive movement is a political force that wants reform in all levels of government, theology, education, industry, medicine, insurance, and finance.). It is another name for socialism.
  23. The Democrat Party is anti-Israel which is anti-Biblical. The Bible says that God will bless those that bless Israel, and curse those that curse Israel. They are also anti-life, being responsible for 56 million deaths of innocent unborn or partially born babies. The Bible also makes it clear that to kill your children is a form of child sacrifice that God abhors. God will hold America responsible.
  24. Open borders would be a huge constitutional crisis and would result in a loss of U.S. sovereignty. The continuous flow of millions of undocumented immigrants would be unsustainable, and would be an invitation to every undesirable human element on this planet, year after year, with no regulations and no way to keep track of them. That would be catastrophic for the security of every citizen, neighborhood, school, place of business, medical facilities, transportation venues, events, town, city, state, etc. It could result in epidemics we never heard of or imagined. There would be a perpetual housing crisis. France has human feces all over their sidewalks. So do parts of San Francisco. Our educational systems would be overwhelmed.
  25. And who would pay for it all? Multi millions of new jobs would need to be created every year and who would be first, citizens or illegals? We would need a much larger welfare system.   Social Security is already being used to support both legal and illegal immigrants and, as I understand, is tapped out. No one is talking about dipping into Congress’s retirement plans. If we, the taxpayers, are responsible for footing all the bills then there will be little take home pay. There would have to be a redistribution of wealth. Hummm! Where did I hear that term used? Do you think there could ever be a crisis of such magnitude in America that we could become a 3rd world country with a Progressive/Socialist/Communist/Marxist gov’t? Look at Venezuela & Cuba. That’s the plan. That’s why one political Party’s whole platform is open borders & socialized medicine, period. They want to homogenize us and make us all equal, & they do not mean equal rights, equal justice, equal opportunity, & all those good American things.
  26. I have always been very generous and compassionate, but I am not going to put any
  27. of my family on the street or deny them necessary disability to give it to an illegal who does not respect our laws, our country, our citizenry from the get-go. That is already happening to a lot of American families (parents and children, not derelicts), more so than most people realize.
  28. All Illegal immigrants (including criminals, terrorists, drug cartel, sex traffickers, gang members, etc.) would be protected/exempted from all federal immigration laws in Sanctuary Cities/States. This would present a huge security problem for every citizen. I am not naïve in thinking that all these things are not direct assaults on America’s/Americans’ sovereignty & would not affect my state, my town, my neighborhood, my family. Even worse, if there is gun control all of the above, legal and illegal criminals would find access to illegal weapons and the average American law abiding citizens who would not have access to guns would have no way of protecting themselves and their families.

If immigrants are intent on forcing their way into our country illegally, come hell or high water, what would they be willing to do after they are in the country?

  1. Sounds like it could very possibly be a perfect “crisis” to precipitate “fundamentally transforming America.” Obama and the Clintons have repeatedly stated as one of their pet slogans, “Never waste a good crisis.” And they were experts at creating them. By the way, it is also a Marxist slogan.
  2. Liberal Muslims are infiltrating the Democrat party gov’t offices on the Federal, State, & local levels. Keith Ellison, a known Sunni Muslim (same as Somali) vacated his Federal Senate seat to run for Attorney General of MN (highest law enforcement officer in the State) on the Democrat ballot. He is also vice-chairman of the National Democrat Party. Ilhan Omar, District Five of MN, is running on the Democrat ballot to replace Keith’s seat. She, also, is a Sunni Muslim with very liberal & anti-Semitic views. I think it is interesting that Socialists & Muslims fit in so well in the Democrat Party. Should we pray that one day there will not be a civil war w/in the Party? That could wind up being a difficult choice: Marxism vs Shari’a Law (Muslim Law). Anyone in the Democrat Party know what either of these are, or does anyone care?
  3. I can live with Trump’s socially unacceptable language. It is blatantly bold, courageous, honestly raw, and devoid of political correctness. It is riddled with frustration that I can definitely identify with. It is not slutty, profane, or violent and does not disrespect God or country. From the day he announced his candidacy, the left wing govt officials, liberal media, Hollywood and many others have launched a full frontal assault on him, his family, his administration and anyone who dares to support him, and that includes me. A recent independent survey found that the liberal media (CNN, NBC, ABC. CBS, MSNBC and other “Cs”) air negative stories about Trump 92% of the time – only 8% positive. Their coverage is not only negative but more often than not it is hateful, nasty and too often untrue, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Even worse than that, it is intentionally divisive of races, religions, countrymen, even families to the degree of advocating and committing violence against the other Party members for political differences. A lot of people are confused about what this is really all about. It is about hatred of America and American ideals across the board.

He has been forced to defend himself and his administration and policies 24/7, something the media never did with Obama and never attacked him or held him accountable for anything. While Democrats and the liberal media protest Trump’s “hate speech”, they in turn, on a daily basis, refer to Trump and his supporters as Nazis, Fascists, Deplorables, Misogynists (women haters), Homophobic, Xenophobic (anti-immigrant), Islamophobic, Haters, Killers, Racists, White Supremists, KKK members, Clingers to God, Guns and Bible, Hate Mongers – there is hardly nothing that conservative Christians and followers of Trump have not been called to demean, harass, intimidate or threaten and none, of course, is considered hate speech. Why on earth would I vote for someone or a Party that blatantly lies about me and expresses hatred towards me every day because I love my God and my country? Like Trump said, “They don’t want me, they want you! I’m just in their way.” TRUER WORDS HAVE NEVER BEEN SPOKEN. That’s why I vote for this man. I have not heard one word of truth come from the Democrat Party since before the Clinton administration and it just keeps getting worse, along with the anger and hatred. That is why I left the Democrat Party never to return. It is the party of divisiveness, hate, lies, untrustworthiness, and has a secret, sinister agenda. No thanks. ,

I am extremely grateful for Trump’s leadership, patriotism, courage, strength, boldness, commitment to keeping his word, upholding the U.S. Constitution, and being a good example for the rest of us.   He is the only president in my lifetime (76 years) who has stood up to the vast corruption in gov’t and even called them out by name, and is a defender of ALL Americans. Wow, pinch me!

It is a fact that over 90% of today’s college professors are liberals, many are socialist or even outspoken communists that are teaching our youth – the ones who will be voting and leading our country in the future. We, as a country, have failed our children and grandchildren by letting this happen in the first place and even more so if we do not even try to save our country for their sakes, but also for the sake of the rest of the free world (what’s left of it). May God forgive us all.

Ooops, forgot this fun fact: Under Obama’s 8 years in office the average Social Security increase for us duffers was 1.1% (3 years were 0%; 1 year 0.3%). In Trump’s two years it has been 2.0% and 2.8%.

Also, in less than two years the Trump economy has removed 10 million people off of food stamps, a sign that more and more people are gainfully employed. This alone saves taxpayers billions of dollars each year.

Build the wall! Secure our borders! Thank you President Trump for caring about America and caring about us.

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!”

Washington Bureaucrats Big Health Insurance Lie

August 25, 2009

You have heard it said a thousand times, spewing forth from the mouths of Washington bureaucrats and politicos (notably Democrats), the Whitehouse inner circle, the liberal media and, of course, President Obama, that the number of chronically uninsured in America is 46 million, or is it 47 million Americans.  This is usually followed by a statement of pseudo-outrage that this must be stopped and all Americans must be covered with health insurance.  But are these numbers correct and is this outrageous bravado on behalf of the uninsured justified? (more…)
