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.

America in Crisis

September 28, 2014

At the beginning of America’s Revolutionary War with England, a new Englishman immigrant to the American colonies, Thomas Paine, began to write a series of 16 articles on The American Crisis.  Prior to arriving in Philadelphia on November 30, 1774, Paine had never visited the New World called America.  However, he quickly became a staunch ally of the colonists in their quest for independence from the British crown.

In his first article, published on December 23, 1776, he started with the now famous line: These are the times that try men’s souls. He followed that with, The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

The fledgling country of America was in deep trouble.  Suffering under the oppressive and tyrannical rule of England, the majority of colonists felt they had no choice but to fight against King George III and his military might for their freedom.  While their heart and spirit was resolute, the young, developing nation faced daunting, if not impossible issues.  Leadership in the country was not completely unified and was still evolving and maturing.  The military was practically non-existent, made up of a rag-tag bunch of farmers and merchants and was seriously out-gunned and unprepared to go up against the superior forces of the British regulars and Hessian (German) mercenaries.  America’s military leadership was unproven and Congress had to “settle” on young George Washington who had never won a military campaign.  America had no navy to go up against the best navy in the world at the time.  The financial condition of the country was poor, with little or no central financial resources to finance the huge and costly undertaking.  By all observations and assessments, America was doomed to failure in this often ill-advised venture called “independence”.

Once again, America stands emerged in a crisis, a crisis like no other and no less to its survival than that of the American Revolution.  Only this time America is dealing with a multitude of crises from within as well as from outside.  At the heart of America’s crises is inept and unwilling leadership, both in politics and the church—past and present.

Some say that what America needs is another “revolution” to restore its fundamental foundations and greatness.  Even Thomas Jefferson believed that, The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure (Thomas Jefferson’s letter to William Stephens Smith on November 13, 1787).  Whether a true revolution will be needed in America, time will tell, but time is getting short.

The United States of America has been on the slippery slope of decay for many decades.  However, the acceleration of the decline has intensified over the last six years—yes, during the Obama administration.

Morally.  America is morally bankrupt.  Her moral decay started long ago but has accelerated at warp speed under a president who strongly opposes “traditional” marriage and has become a forceful advocate for perverted sexual unions.  America is now the largest exporter of online pornography in the world, dispensing 60 percent or 428 million pages of perversion, with 66 percent coming from one state, California.  In the latest survey, 48 percent of America’s “first-born” children are born outside of a marriage union.  Since the passage of Roe vs. Wade abortion legislation in 1973, America has willfully killed over 56 million potential citizens and exported this heinous crime worldwide.  For more information, see these two links, here and here.

Financially.  America’s national debt is unsustainable and approaching $18 trillion with around $125 trillion in “unfunded” liabilities.  Obama and his Federal Reserve method of dealing with this has been to pack on another nearly $10 trillion during his six years in office with trillions more to come before he leaves office and tens of trillions more after he is long gone. Under Obama, America’s “debt to government revenue” has soared to 656%, the highest in the world.  Compare that to near bankrupt Greece which had a debt to government revenue of 351%, while the average for all 27 Eurozone countries was 40%.  See this link here for more information.

Economically.  Instead of trying to cut the deficit, Obama authorized the Fed to print money at the rate of $85 billion/month.  Obama’s economic policies have been and will continue to be proven to be disastrous.   While the stock market has mushroomed due to all the easy money printed by the Fed, middle-class families are falling behind financially and the ranks of the poor and those on the government dole have skyrocketed.   America’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) growth from 2008-2012 was one of the lowest in the Western Hemisphere.  Full time, family supporting jobs have evaporated with millions of new college graduates working at low wage jobs or not working at all in their chosen field of study.  For more information, see this link here.

Militarily.   Since taking office in early 2009, President Obama has been intent on deconstructing the U.S. military, downsizing and weakening it at a time when America’s traditional and surging new adversaries are growing and strengthening.  During his tenure, America has been overtly threatened by North Korea, China, Russia, Iran and an ever-growing array of Islamic terrorist groups and armies.  Yet, he has the audacity to proclaim that under his administration the world has never been safer.  Over two hundred high ranking military leaders have been fired by Obama and another 500 or more career officers have received “pink slips”.  Under his “command” the military has not only been severely weakened but has become demoralized and seriously unprepared for major battle.  For more information, see this link here.

Politically.   Unfortunately, at a time when America needs a strong leader of unprecedented character, it has a two-term self-absorbed, narcissistic leader who cannot and will not lead—but will never turn down an opportunity to golf, vacation or fund raise at the expense of the taxpayer.  Obama is a leader who refuses to listen to his military advisors or any other advisors unless they agree with his destructive, socialistic and tyrannical policies.  He is one who has been the most divisive and constitutionally defying leaders the country has ever had; flaunting and abusing the rule of law anywhere he is allowed.  He refuses to secure America’s borders and has freely invited illegals into the country along with assorted criminals, drug lords and terrorists.  His democratic cohorts and assorted “czars” have wrecked havoc with America’s judicial system and laws, creating one unresolved scandal after another—anyone of which would have led to the impeachment of previous presidents.  See this link here for more information.

Spiritually. (chap 19 link)  The Judeo-Christian faith has been under relentless attack in America for many decades, partly because the church in America has grown weak, worldly and complacent.  Because of the addiction to “tax exempt” status, the majority of churches and their leaders would rather preach the gospel of compliance than the Gospel of God’s truth and righteousness.  Under the current administration the attacks on free speech and religious freedom have accelerated at a time when atheists and an assortment of “rights” groups have successfully denied the Judeo-Christian community of faith their God-given rights.  For more information, see this link here. 

America’s people who believe in God have one choice and one choice only when it comes to redeeming their lives, their family and their nation—they must turn from their wicked ways, repent and return to God.  Non-believers will scoff at this, convinced that they have the answers to America’s problems, but will only take the country further into the abyss.   “He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy” (Proverbs 28:13).

America stands at the proverbial fork in the road and once again she must chose whether to follow the heathen, Baal or God.  But “a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom,” warned John Adams in a letter to his wife, Abigail, on July 17, 1775, “can never be restored.  Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.” (From Revelation 18 and the fate of America, p. 354).

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!”

Allah IS NOT God!

March 4, 2014

On Sunday, February 16, 2014, U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, was visiting Indonesia, the largest Muslim populated nation in the world.  With over 200 million Muslim adherents, Indonesia is home to about 13 percent of the world’s Muslims.  While visiting the Istiqlal Mosque that accommodates 130,000 Muslim faithful in Jakarta, Kerry obligingly agreed to beat the mosque drum in the call to prayer.

Was Kerry there to encourage Indonesian and Muslim leaders to get a better handle on the growing radical Islamists who attack, suppress and persecute Christians and other non-Muslims?  No, he was there to push his and the Obama Administration’s radical “climate change” agenda and to proclaim that, “We are all bound to one God and the Abrahamic faiths tie us together in love for our fellow man and honor for the same God.”  By “we” it is assumed that he was including Muslims, Jews and Christians in one happy family of faith.

One thing is perfectly clear from history and biblical scriptures, that while Allah is the god of Muslims, he IS NOT the Jehovah God of the Jews and Christians as represented in the Bible and history of those two bodies of believers.  For centuries Muslim clerics and scholars have tried re-write biblical and world history and claim that ALL the Old Testament prophets and Jewish patriarchs were really Muslims and that even Jesus was a Muslim.  Muslims have tried for centuries to give their pagan religion legitimacy by claiming that it is an Abrahamic religion, meaning that it originated from Abraham, the Jewish patriarch who lived 2,800 years before Islam was ever conceived by Muhammad in what he considered was a satanic vision.

Christians and the Jewish people DO NOT pray to, worship or honor the same god as do Muslims, nor do they have the same affection, understanding and viewpoint of mankind and human nature that Muslims do.  Once again, a Western leader has demonstrated profound ignorance and gullibility about one of the most threatening enemies of Judeo-Christianity and Western society.  Right after the horrific attack on America on September 11, 2001 by Islamists, President George W. Bush was quick to assert that, “We see in Islam a religion that traces its origins back to God’s call on Abraham. We share your belief in God’s justice, and your insistence on man’s moral responsibility. We thank the many Muslim nations who stand with us against terror. Nations that are often victims of terror, themselves” (meeting with U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan The Oval Office, Washington, DC November 13, 2002).  Once again, Islam IS NOT an Abrahamic faith, nor does Islam teach or believe in the justice of a loving God, but rather in Allah’s unrelenting vengeance upon non-Muslims.

The Bible is full of expressions of God’s love for His creation (see John 3:16-17 and elsewhere).  However, throughout the entire Qur’an no such sentiments are expressed by Allah.  The Qur’an, however, orders the followers of Islam to attack and kill its enemies, even if there is no provocation to do so. “True” Muslims are required by Allah, as revealed in the Qur’an, to carry out a one-sided offensive and violent war of attrition against all those who do not accept Allah as God and follow his “commandments” (Islam & Christianity, A Revealing Contrast, p. 169).

On November 19, 2001, President George W. Bush, at the Iftaar Dinner in The State Dining Room, Washington, D.C., stated that,  “The Islam that we know is a faith devoted to the worship of one God, as revealed through The Holy Qur’an. It teaches the value and the importance of charity, mercy, and peace.”  The Qur’an and Islam’s “prophet” Muhammad teaches and taught no such virtues.  Although the Qur’an does teach that Muslims are to be charitable toward each other, there is no such admonition to be charitable toward non-Muslims.  Nor will one find in the Qur’an any teaching on Allah’s mercy toward non-believers or that Allah brings peace to Muslim adherents or non-Muslims.  There is only one author of peace and mercy and that is Jesus Christ.

Two years later, on November 20, 2003, in a joint conference with then British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, President Bush proclaimed that he, along with Christians and Jews worshipped the same God as Muslims and that Islam was a religion of peace.

Of course, the present occupant of the Whitehouse, Barack Hussein Obama has made his sympathies for Islam well known, saying that, “The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer.”  Right after his first election to the office of president, Obama went on an “apology” tour of appeasement and bowing to the leaders of Islam around the world, thus tipping his hat of allegiance and admiration.

In an effort to usurp the Abrahamic lineage for Islam, Muslim clerics and scholars have proclaimed for centuries that it was not Isaac, the Jewish patriarch that spawned the 12 tribes of Israel, that Abraham sought to sacrifice on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem, but rather Ishmael on Mount Mina outside Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

There are numerous problems with the Islamic claim to Abrahamic lineage.  Several things should be noted at this point. First, Abram chose to disbelieve God’s promised covenant with him and establish his own covenant by the flesh. Second, his partner in this fleshly covenant was the pagan, Hagar (meaning one who takes flight), the Egyptian. Third, it was God, not Abram, who chose the name of Ishmael for this son to be born outside of God’s chosen covenant with His people. Fourth, it was God who said at Ishmael’s conception, that he would “be a wild man;” and that “his hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him.” At the same time “he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren”  (Islam & Christianity, A Revealing Contrast, p. 2; also read Genesis 15:3-5, 16:11-12). . . . Fourteen years after the birth of Ishmael, God fulfilled His intended covenant with Abram (now Abraham) with the birth of Isaac to Sarah who was no longer called Sarai. . . . God never intended to establish His covenant with Ishmael, because Ishmael was not the child of the promise but of the flesh. God could not establish His covenant with him, He could only bless him. While God blessed Ishmael with fruitfulness, He never made a covenant with him. God’s covenant was with Abraham and him only. And, unlike Abraham and Isaac, God never promised Ishmael and his seed that He would be their God (ibid, p. 3).

Although Arabic Muslims claim Abraham as their heir, biblically they are descendants of pre-covenant Abram, the one who disobeyed God and disbelieved His promise of an heir through Sarah. God could bless Ishmael, but He could never establish His covenant with a sinful seed of the flesh.

Ishmael became the father of 12 Arabian princes (nations) whom God said that He would “multiply . . . exceedingly” (Genesis 17:20). Ishmael and Hagar were driven into the Wilderness of Paran to dwell (Genesis 21:20-21). This wilderness covers the eastern Sinai and the southern and southeastern borders of present-day Israel. 

Ishmael’s sons initially inhabited an area from Egypt and the Sinai Desert, the Arabian peninsula to Assyria (which includes present day Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and the lesser Arab kingdoms).

Remember, God promised that Ishmael and his descendants would be wild men whose hand would be “against every man.”

Democrats: Demented Fools or Cunning Communists?

February 27, 2014

Are Democrats demented fools or cunning Communists?  In either case, America is in deep trouble and voters better snap out of their malaise in the coming election and thoroughly boot out all, and I mean ALL Democrats up for re-election and their RINO (Republicans in Name Only) counter-parts who are rapidly subverting the U.S. Constitution and rule of law in America.

It is no surprise that Democrats have won elections through deceit and subterfuge.  The leftist Democratic educational system has been hard at work for decades to dumb-down America’s young so that they become voting zombies and pawns of their socialistic agenda.

Democrats say the most outrageous things.  In the past week some high-profile Democrats (including the president) spouted some outrageous nonsense.  Let me re-phrase that: “Outrageous lies.”  First, on Sunday, February 23, it was reported that Secretary of State, John Kerry, not well known for his pro-American rhetoric or wisdom, while visiting Indonesia, the world’s largest nation of Muslims, proclaimed to the Muslim world (while beating the drum call to Islamic prayer) that, “We [Muslims, Christians and Jews] are all bound to one god and the Abrahamic faiths tie us together in love for our fellow man and honor for the same god.”  I’m not sure what planet Kerry lives on, but it certainly is not the one of everyday reality.  A little religious/history lesson for Mr. Kerry.  Muslims, Christians and Jews DO NOT (I emphasize, DO NOT) serve, worship or pray to the same god.  Allah, the Muslim god, is a heathen, pagan god of Arabic myth (see Islam & Christianity, A Revealing Contrast).  Islam IS NOT an Abrahamic faith.  Ishmael, the son of Abraham and the slave woman, Hagar, became the father of 12 Arabic kingdoms, NOT Islam, which  was the satanic vision of Muhammad many centuries later.

moron beating a drum

Islam IS NOT a religion of peace and love for one’s fellow man, but rather a demonic religion of bondage that persecutes anyone who disagrees with its members sadistic viewpoint.  Hundreds of millions of people around the world are persecuted, demeaned and murdered EVERY year by adherents to the Islamic faith and the teachings of their “holy” book, the Qur’an.

The very next day, Chuck Hagel, Obama’s new Secretary of Defense, announced that he is proposing a cut in the size of the U.S. military to levels not seen since before World War II.  After-all, America has far fewer enemies than 75 years ago, right?  Today it’s hard to keep tabs on the number of tyrants and terrorists who want to bring America down and see her thoroughly destroyed.

Not to be outdone, Obama’s despicable excuse for Attorney General, Eric Holder, in a meeting of state attorney generals on February 25, told the highest law officers in each state that they did not have to uphold laws that they felt were discriminatory.  Of course, Obama and Holder have long held the opinion that the duly passed congressional law known as the “Defense of Marriage Act” was not worthy of defending in the courts because it called for recognition that the sanctity of marriage was best served by the uniting of one man and one woman in the sacred man-woman union ordained by God.  What laws will Holder-Obama suggest not be adhered to next week or next month as they play out their tyrannical hand of constitutional subversion?

Then there is the Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-NV) who seems to be in a daily race with Vice President Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi for who can say the most outrageous thing.  On the Senate floor on February 26, Mr. Reid asserted, “Despite all that good news [about Obamacare], there’s plenty of horror stories being told. All are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.”  Again, what planet does Reid live on?  Was he resting comfortably with Nancy Pelosi and Biden in a cocoon of denial when Obama said, if you like your health insurance, you can keep it, but millions of Americans lost their insurance and tens of millions more will due to Obamacare?  Was Reid out-to-lunch when Obama said, if you like your doctor you can keep him, but thousands are losing their general practitioners and critical care doctors due to Obamacare?  And where was Reid when Obama promised that his Affordable Care Act would reduce health insurance premiums by an average of $2500 for families, yet millions are seeing their health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs skyrocket.  In his statement before his peers, Reid asserts that all the health care horrors and testimonies being given by everyday people that are in a health care crisis are nothing more than consummate liars and Republican shills.  Are Democrats that obsessed with forcing Obamacare down the raspy throats of Americans that they are willing to habitually lie about it no matter what the cost to the people and the nation?  It is disgusting and reprehensible to watch and listen to day after day.  To date, according to reliable counts, Obama has unilaterally and illegally violated the Constitution and changed the Affordable Care Act 27 times since it was passed by ALL Democrats.

On the same day, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), took to the Senate floor to offer praise to the despotic and oppressive regime in Cuba after his week-long visit there.  Harkin oozed forth praise for Cuba’s socialistic health care system, education and, of course, their baseball accomplishments.  Harkin’s praise resulted in Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), whose parents fled Cuba, to give Harkin and the Senate a dose of Cuban truth serum.

It seems that Democrats ascribed to the communist/Marxist notion that if you tell a lie often enough the people will believe it.

And then there is Mike Dickinson, a Virginia Democrat, who is running against Republican Eric Cantor.  What’s Dickinson’s beef?  He wants the FCC (Federal Communications Commission)— the same FCC that wants to monitor every news room in the nation for proper, government-approved content—to investigate Fox News.  Why?  Because, according to Mr. Dickinson, “Fox News does nothing but tell lies and mistruths.”  Gee, I guess that’s the reason they are the most watched news station in the country with 35% market share compared to the “truth-tellers” CNN (6% viewership) and MSNBC (3%).

Oh, and let’s not forget President Obama himself.  He also lives in the la-la land of deception.  On Tuesday night (February 25), before a gathering of his faithful at an Organizing for Action event, he told those rapt to hear his every word, that, “The work you’re doing is God’s work.”  (He was referring, no doubt, to the difficulties Americans are finding in swallowing his repeated lies on just about everything).  Of course, he did not say which god they were working for.  This is the same Obama who could say with a straight face during his interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly that there is “not even a smidgen of corruption” associated with the IRS scandal.  This, his decree, despite the fact that there has not been a thorough investigation yet and no testimonies by complainants had been taken at the time.

The U.S. Constitution in Crisis.   With Democrats from the President on down in a full frontal assault on the intelligence of Americans and the Rule of Law is it any wonder why Jonathan Turley, Professor of Constitutional Law at The George Washington University Law School, when testifying at a House committee meeting yesterday on executive overreach by President Obama, that America was in a constitutional crisis (see Fox video). “I believe we are now in a constitutional tipping point in our system [of government].  It’s a dangerous point for our system to be in.”  The three branches of the government of the United States (Executive, Legislative and Judicial) were established by the Founders as checks and balances for each other, Turley duly noted, and to prevent usurpation by any one of the branches, becoming a rogue entity that destroyed the intent of the U.S. Constitution.

The dumbing-down of Americans:  What the polls say.  So, how did we get to this point in our once great nation?  It has not been by accident, but rather by subversive political design over decades.  True American history has all but been thoroughly purged from America’s schools and universities or scrubbed clean for political-correctness.  Replacing American history are pseudo-history texts in the nation’s schools that are contrived by Muslim adherents.  See this American Textbook Council report: Islam in the Classroom: What the Textbooks Tell Us.

In March, 2011, Newsweek took a poll of 1,000 U.S. citizens, asking them to take the same 100 civics questions  test given to immigrants in order to become a U.S. citizen.  Of the 3 million-plus immigrants who have taken the test recently, 92% passed.  However, in the poll, only 29% of respondents could name the nation’s vice president (Joe Biden); 40% did not know that the U.S. fought against Germany and Japan in World War II; 44% could not define what the Bill of Rights were in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution; 67% did not know that America’s economic system is based on capitalism and 73% did not know why America fought the Cold War (communism).

In a McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum poll taken of 1,000 U.S. adults in January, 2006, only one in the 1,000 could name the 5 freedoms guaranteed under the Bill of Rights.  However, 22% could name all five of the major cartoon characters of the Simpsons.  While only 8% of the respondents could name three of the five freedoms of Amendment I, 40% could name two of the three judges on American Idol.

Should we be dismayed that America is in such a fix?  Americans have been “dumbed-down” to the point that the majority no longer know the law of the land or when they are being lied to.

Are you concerned about America’s future?  Read Revelation 18 and the fate of America.

Obama’s Fabricated Compassion

January 14, 2013

Who can forget the “photo-op” telecast of President Barack Obama methodically wiping away a tear as he mourned the senseless slaughter of 20 innocent children at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

Obama wiping tears

Around the same time it was reported that Planned Parenthood ended its 2011-2012 fiscal year with a record $542,400,000 in federal funds from generous, if not partly unwilling, American taxpayers.  In part, this enabled Planned Parenthood to administer 333,394 brutal death notices to unborn innocent children.  Since Mr. Obama has been in office federal funding of Planned Parenthood has dramatically increased and has permitted this heinous organization to carry out 1,329,651 end-of-life procedures for innocent unborn children.  Ah, but did you see Obama shed any tears for them?  Of course not!  He is the most radical, anti-life president America has ever put in office.  He is the only president who supported and supports partial-birth abortion; the only president who believes that a woman’s right trumps the rights of the unborn, hands down.

Politically correct tears? They are easy to come by.  But what about true repentance; remorse and weeping for all the millions of innocent lives taken and the government’s complicity and support?  Any tears for those children?  Not one moist drop.  Sorry, Mr. President, your staged compassion rings hollow.  Yes, I know, many before you and even now are also complicit in the murder plot against the unborn, but you ARE the current leader.  You could do something to end this travesty against human life, but you will not.  You do not have the heart for it.  The compassion for the innocent that is truly needed.

Obama Announces Gun Control Task Force

December 19, 2012

[I know, I have been pretty quiet since the election.  I’m still recovering from the shock of American stupidity in re-electing a do-nothing, incompetent, Marxist, freedom-destroying racist as president of the once great nation of America.]

“Obama announces gun control task force.”  Well, no surprise here.  Obama and his ilk will jump at any opportunity to savage the Second Amendment.  Just in case you are not familiar with the 2nd Amendment, The Right to Bear Arms, here it is in its short, sweet and clear one sentence:  A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep  and bear arms, shall not be infringed.   Why was this amendment to our (used to be) cherished U.S. Constitution so important to the Founding Fathers and those that signed the Constitution?  Simply, because it follows their thinking in the 1st Amendment:  Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.  Without the 2nd Amendment, citizens of the United States cannot protect the five freedoms (religion, speech, press, assembly and redress of grievances) in the 1st Amendment.  That is what has made America the most unique (not perfect) country in the history of the world, along with its foundation built on  Judeo-Christian faith and principles.

. . . shall not be infringed.  What exactly does that phrase mean?  What did the Founders intend for it to mean?  To infringe upon something or someone means to violate established law or violate a person’s right or break an oath to them in supporting and defending their right(s).  To infringe upon someone’s rights means that you are limiting or eliminating their freedoms.

The Founding Fathers, the architects of the Constitution and the signers of the United States Constitution had vivid memories of their fight for freedom and separation from the tyrannical and oppressive government of England.  They wanted to make sure that future generations would not fall victim to or become captive to such a government in the future.  If the tyrannical, marxist powers now gaining strength in the U.S. are successful in weakening, modifying, restricting or even abolishing the 2nd Amendment, how long will it be before part or all of the 1st Amendment will  be under full scale attack?  The 1st Amendment in many ways has been under assault from our own government for years, in both subtle and forthright beatings.

I have a novel idea:  Instead of gutting the 2nd Amendment and leaving us defenseless against criminals and a corrupt government, how about the church and politicians get some backbone and “destroy” abortion.  You know, that hideous act of pure murder of the unborn, near born and recently born.

Since the passage of Rowe vs. Wade legislation in 1973 that “legalized” abortion in the United States over 54 million innocent lives have been slaughtered in or outside the womb.  Worldwide, over 1.3 billion babies have been murdered.  And this is only those abortions that were recorded as “legal” murders.  One cannot promote a culture that values life when one actively, blatantly and with wanton disregard for precious life promote a culture of death—legally taking the lives of the most innocent and unprotected.  If mothers can callously take the life of their unborn for no greater reason than such a birth would be “inconvenient”, “unwanted”, “untimely” or “unaffordable”, why would we expect our surviving offspring to respect life?

And, here’s another novel idea:  Instead of spending hundreds of millionsof dollars each year (over $1 billion from 2002-2009) of taxpayer monies to fund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to take the life of America’s future, let us channel it to pay for better mental health programs and support.

There always has been and always will be violent criminals and the murder of innocent people.  That is the product of a sinful, unrepentant, fallen world.  Controlling or banning guns in the hands of responsible citizens who desire to exercise their Second Amendment rights to “bear arms” for sport or self-protection will not reduce violent deaths at the hands of those so intent on doing so.  It will only open the door to even more criminal violence.

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.

The Real Question

November 17, 2012

The real question is not, “Did President Obama, Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta and Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton, lie about the Benghazi Islamic terrorist attack?”  By now, unless you have been living in a cave in outer Mongolia or are a blind, rabid Obama supporter who would not know the truth if it bit you in the behind (several times), the answer has to be an unequivacable and resounding, YES!

The real question is not, “Is President Obama the most corrupt, deceitful and dangerous president in modern times?”  The evidence has been mounting for the past four years and has been hidden from the American people by the mainstream media about his radical, anti-American past and present.

The real question is not, “Is Obama one of the most inept leaders on the planet and one of the most inept in American history?”  His clueless policies; inability to form or pass a budget in the four years he has been in office; his dangerous foreign policies that have put Americans at higher risk at home and abroad; his total lack of understanding of business and economics that are destroying jobs and the American workforce; his reckless and wanton spending beyond the county’s means and ability to avoid insolvency.

The REAL QUESTION IS: Will the members of the House of Representatives and the Senate have the unmitigated gall; the courage; the commitment to the American people; the undeniable patriotism and welfare of the country and its future in mind and bring Obama and his cohorts to justice through impeachment; criminal charges and treason?

THAT IS THE REAL QUESTION.
