When a Duck is not a Duck

February 9, 2015

There is a popular axiom that states: “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it’s a duck.”  However, in President Obama’s world and that of his administration that axiom goes like this: “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it must be a hippopotamus or anything else but a duck.

When it comes to Islam, despite overwhelming past and present evidence throughout the world of the barbaric nature of its adherents, where any intelligent mind and observer of current events, can easily see that the devastating majority of current terror and murderous deeds against mankind are committed by avowed Muslims, Obama and his team absolutely refuse to link such terrorism with Muslims and the Islamic faith.  Instead, he and his ilk are deceptively content to refer to such godless murders as purveyors of “workplace” violence in the case of the Fort Hood Islamic mass murderer.

On the occasion of the Islamic beheading of two American journalists, Obama could barely break away from his ever important golf game to disingenuously say: “It’s not only that we’re going to be bringing to justice those who perpetrated this terrible crime against these two fine young men. The United States will continue to lead a regional and international effort against this kind of barbaric and ultimately empty vision.”  Those who perpetrated this terrible crime Mr. President were and are Islamic terrorists who adhere to the clear teaching of the Qur’an and the example of Muhammad who routinely beheaded his foes.  As for the empty vision of these Islamic sub humans, read your Qur’an—I’m sure you have at least one—and admit to the obvious: Islam is a debased and cruel religion, not of peace, but of barbarism.

Shortly after the murderous attack by Muslim terrorists on the staff of the French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, where they killed over a dozen people, U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry,  had the unmitigated gall to say that, “The biggest error we could make would be to blame Muslims for crimes . . . that their faith utterly rejects.”  Has Kerry ever read the Qur’an or the teachings of Muhammad, Islam’s revered founder and posthumous leader?  Not likely.  Even in a cursory reading of the Qur’an one cannot walk away without acknowledging that Islam is nothing more than a satanic religion that advocates death and mayhem for non-believers.  Those who deny that are in deep bondage to its satanic master and god.  And those in leadership in America and elsewhere, both in government and the Christian church, who deny such, are seriously jeopardizing the safety, freedom and well being of mankind.

After the horrendous, torturous burning to death of the Jordanian pilot by ISIS, yet another Islamic terrorist group that has risen rapidly to power after Obama’s bailout from the Middle East, our illustrious president could barely tear himself away from more pressing issues, such as health care (which he has disastrously destroyed).   In referring to the ISIS video released showing the burning of the pilot, Mr. Obama struggled to come up with any meaningful utterance.  “But, uh, uh, should in fact this video be authentic,” he mused, “it’s just one more indication of the viciousness and, uh, barbarity of this organization.”

“Ummm, and it just indicates the degree to which whatever ideology they’re operating off of it’s bankrupt.”  Gee, such insight; such determination; such gutless bull—-!  One more indication of the viciousness . . . barbarity of this organization?  What planet are you living on, Mr. President?  How many “indications” do you need to wake you up to the reality that MUSLIM terrorists, whether ISIS, ISIL, al Qaeda, Hamas, the Taliban or the Muslim Brotherhood members you have on your staff, mean business, and that business is to kill and destroy Americans and America?  But then you would rather spend your time extolling Islam as a “religion of peace.”  Something any dolt understands is not true.  As far as ISIS being an “organization”, well, they’re not the Boy Scouts.  Egypt’s leaders and the head of the Kurdish military estimate that ISIS is a formidable military unit of 180,000-200,000 strong and growing daily.  You could have destroyed them two years ago when they were only a rag-tag group if you had listened to your military advisors.  But then, you are not one who listens to good advice.  So, now, due to your lack of interest in pursuing and eradicating ISLAMIC terrorists, Mr. President, the FBI has opened active investigations in 49 of our 50 states into the potential of ISIS terrorists living therein.

Oh, and let me not forget your blistering chastisement of today’s Christians at the National Prayer Breakfast last Thursday for The Crusades of nearly a thousand years ago.  “And lest we [presumably us unworthy Americans and Christians] get on our high horse,” you admonished, “and think this [I guess you mean the horrific torture, death and mayhem of Muslims] is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.”

Mr. President, your knowledge of ancient history is as inept and deceptive as that of your command of the U.S. Constitution, the Bible and the leadership of the nation.  While the Crusades may have been carried out in the name of Christ, as you so forcefully stated, they in no way followed His teachings of peace, love and to pray for one’s enemies.  More accurately (which you have problems with truth and accuracy), the Crusades were carried out as a direct response and defense against the barbarous, murderous invasions of the Muslim hoards from northern Africa and the Middle East into southern Europe where they tortured and murdered hundreds of thousands of Europeans.  Tired of such oppression by Muslims and concerned about their advancing into northern Europe, the kings of Europe appealed to the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Urban II, to organize a counter-offensive against the Muslims.  In bringing up the “Inquisition” I presume you meant the Spanish Inquisition, which was an attempt once again by the papacy of the Roman Catholic Church and the Catholic monarchs of Spain to rid Spain of the invading hoards of Muslims, dictating that they convert to Catholicism or leave Spain.  Of course, neither the Crusades nor the Inquisition has anything to do with the current barbarism and desire for world domination of the Muslim faithful or its assault on Western values, culture and freedom.  But then, you are very skilled at obfuscating the truth to comply with your own anti-American agenda.

Lest you be reminded for the umpteenth time, Islam IS NOT a “religion of peace”, as you in ad nauseam proclaim to the ignorant—it never was, is not now, nor never will be.  While the New Testament of the Bible clearly and irrefutably calls Christians to be messengers of peace, as well as peacemakers, there is no such edict in the Qur’an or in the supposed teachings of Muhammad for the followers of Allah to be messengers of peace or to be peacemakers.  To the distinct contrary, the clear teachings of the Qur’an and Muhammad are for the “true” followers of Islam and Allah, is to take revenge against ALL those who refuse to accept Allah as the true god or to bow the knee to him and his followers—and that includes, as we have seen, all Muslims who refuse to adhere to the barbaric theology of Islamic terrorists, who are only interpreting what the Qur’an and Muhammad advocates and advocated.

So, Mr. President, I for one do not buy your deceptive rhetoric about your favorite charity (at U.S. taxpayer expense)—you know, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hezbollah and Muslim terrorists in general—and I pray that an ever growing number of Americans are catching on to your scam.

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.

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.
