The Fascism Of The Left Taking A Dangerous Turn. And Are You SURE You Want To Take This Road To Hell, America???

October 20, 2014

Are now or have you ever been a Christian?

Don’t worry, Democrat.  You’re safe.  God knows YOU’VE never been one and never will be.  The only thing you love more than homosexual sodomy is murdering babies – and you’ve murdered sixty million so far and counting.

When I was preparing for ministry, I had a vision that one day I would end up in prison for being a Christian.

That day is soon coming as several recent stories prove:

New America: Ordained ministers threatened with jail unless they perform same sex marriages
By Rick Moran

City officials in Coeur d’Alene Idaho have told a married couple who are both ordained ministers that they will go to jail if they refuse to perform wedding ceremonies for gay couples.

The Alliance for Defending Freedom has filed suit against the city and asked for a temporary restraining order to prevent officials from carrying out their threat.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for a temporary restraining order Friday to stop officials in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, from forcing two ordained Christian ministers to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples.

City officials told Donald Knapp that he and his wife Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, are required to perform such ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines. The city claims its “non-discrimination” ordinance requires the Knapps to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies now that the courts have overridden Idaho’s voter-approved constitutional amendment that affirmed marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

“The government should not force ordained ministers to act contrary to their faith under threat of jail time and criminal fines,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco. “Many have denied that pastors would ever be forced to perform ceremonies that are completely at odds with their faith, but that’s what is happening here – and it’s happened this quickly. The city is on seriously flawed legal ground, and our lawsuit intends to ensure that this couple’s freedom to adhere to their own faith as pastors is protected just as the First Amendment intended.”

The couple would face 180 days in jail and up to $1000 in fines per day if they dared to adhere to their religious beliefs.

“The city somehow expects ordained pastors to flip a switch and turn off all faithfulness to their God and their vows,” explained ADF Legal Counsel Jonathan Scruggs. “The U.S. Constitution as well as federal and state law clearly stand against that. The city cannot mandate across-the-board conformity to its interpretation of a city ordinance in utter disregard for the guaranteed freedoms Americans treasure in our society.”

How many other towns and cities have statutes like this? No doubt there are other budding fascists out there who would enjoy putting Christian ministers in jail for not violating the sacred tenets of their faith.

This is a law that manifestly violates the Constitution so I wouldn’t expect any court in America to uphold the city statutue. But the fact that it was passed in the first place should raise the alarm that the assault on religious liberty has entered a new phase. The power of government is being used in the contraceptive controversey and now the gay marriage issue to force acceptance of practices totally at odds with the religious faith of millions of people.

Notice that these wicked cowards aren’t going into mosques and imposing homosexuality on them.  I mean, where’s the left in forcing Islam to cater to their perversions?  Their cowards and provably cowardly.  But it’s open season on Christians, though.

Here’s another one, detailing the left’s demand for all records from church pastors as they conduct one of their Stalinist show trials:

‘Stunned’ in Houston: Pastors Vow to Fight Mayor’s Sermon Grab
By Tony Perkins , CP Op-Ed Contributor
October 16, 2014|10:16 am

Houston is home to one of NASA’s most sophisticated space centers — but even it would have trouble finding signs of intelligence in the local Mayor’s office. The city’s highest official is blowing past the First Amendment at warp speed — and lighting a political powder keg in the process.

After four years of forcing her extreme agenda on the city, Mayor Annise Parker may have finally picked a fight she’s bound to regret. Five months after bullying her way into a Houston-wide “bathroom bill,” Parker is furious that the city’s voters won’t roll over and accept it. Instead, America’s fourth-largest city fought back, gathering three times the number of signatures needed to put the issue on the ballot. Furious with local pastors for leading the pushback, Parker decided to get her revenge by ordering a Soviet-style crackdown on area churches.

In a story that’s spreading like wildfire, the Mayor had the nerve to subpoena pastors for their sermons, text messages, photographs, electronic files, calendars, and emails — “all communications with members of your congregation” on topics like homosexuality and gender identity. If she thought her religious “inquisition” would scare pastors, she’s got another thing coming. Local Christians are more outraged than ever, igniting a firestorm that could awaken a sleeping giant in churches from coast to coast. “We’re not intimidated at all,” said Rev. Dave Welch. “We’re not going to yield our First Amendment rights,” he warned — even if it ends in fines, confinement, or both.

The Mayor reportedly attempted to douse the flames a bit by saying the subpoena was the work of pro-bono lawyers and that she was not aware of it until yesterday. Then, she doubled down with a tweet: “If the 5 pastors used pulpits for politics, their sermons are fair game.”

In a conversation I had this afternoon with a handful of key pastors, it’s obvious that this is a fight they’re ready for. Pastor Steve Riggle, a friend of FRC’s, sees right through the Mayor’s agenda. “This is an attempt to chill pastors from speaking to the cultural issues of the day,” he told Fox News’s Todd Starnes. And if she doesn’t pull her attack dogs off the city’s churches, the joke will be on her. It just might end up being the most ingenious way of getting liberals into the pews yet! “Political and social commentary is not a crime. It is protected by the First Amendment,” Alliance Defending Freedom pointed out.

This is the “wall of separation” Jefferson talked about: protecting churches from the government (not the other way around). The Left is fond of misrepresenting the third President’s famous letter, but Annise Parker’s intrusion is exactly what the Founders were concerned about. But what did we expect in a country where four little letters — LGBT — are trumping the letter of the law? “Even in Houston,” Erick Erickson writes, “you will be made to care.”

Unfortunately, Houston is learning a hard lesson about the importance of elections. As frustrating as it is, this is what happens in a city where only 16 percent turn out to vote in the mayor’s race. For now, though, local churches have a message for the government: go ahead and monitor our sermons. You obviously need the messages more than most.

You can stand with Houston’s pastors by signing FRC’s petition to Mayor Annise Parker, asking her to support free speech for all people.

Another article points out the outrage that the left – pretty much the damned Democrat Party – is demanding:

LGBT: The ‘T’ Is for Tyranny
By Matt Barber , CP Op-Ed Contributor
October 20, 2014|11:24 am

Tranny tyranny. Strike that. “LGBT” tyranny. Lesbian, gay, bisexual tyranny. That, generally speaking, is what’s on display in Houston right now. But trust me: Unlike Vegas, what happens in Houston will, most definitely, not stay in Houston – not if Democrats continue to have their way.

Houstonians elected themselves, as mayor, an extremist lesbian Democrat (but I repeat myself). She quickly, and quite naturally, took to doing what extremist lesbian Democrats do. Annise Parker is her name, and spreading political Ebola is her game. That and trampling the U.S. Constitution. As you’ve likely heard, Parker’s office has illegally subpoenaed the sermons and privileged communications of a number of Christian pastors who vocally opposed the city’s ironically branded “Equal Rights Ordinance” (aka, the Houston Bathroom Bill).

More on that later. First, let’s scoot north-leftward for context.

Washington state, dateline 2012: Colleen is just like the girl next door. Well, sort of. Colleen has a penis. So, I guess, unless the girl next door has a penis, Coleen really isn’t much like her at all.

But that’s beside the point. In Washington you must, under penalty of law, pretend, along with Colleen and Democrats that, in the face of both reality and sanity, Colleen really is like the girl next door. This includes letting Colleen, who is actually a 47-year-old dude named Clay Scott Francis, lay naked and “sprawled out in a sauna exposing himself” to girls as young as 6 years old. This really happened in the ladies locker room at Evergreen State College.

It’s only fair, you see, because, as Clay, er, “Colleen,” complained, and as police agreed, this sick bastard was “discriminated against” when he was asked to leave on behalf of a terrorized 17-year-old girl. “This is not 1959 Alabama,” cried Francis. “We don’t call police for drinking from the wrong water fountain.”

Get that, my African-American friends? According to this beneficiary of “white privilege,” a man who, incidentally, identifies as a “transgender lesbian” (meaning he’s sexually attracted to females), to be told that you cannot sprawl naked and intentionally expose your manly bits to 6-year-old girls is no different from being relegated to a “colored only” water fountain.

Mayor Annise Parker and the larger Democratic Party agree. Ian Tuttle reports for National Review:

“Earlier this year Parker, a Democrat, spearheaded the passage of an ‘Equal Rights Ordinance’ (ERO) that added ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ to the city’s non-discrimination provision, which includes, among other things, ‘public accommodations’ – for example, restrooms. Citizens, among them church leaders, balked. They launched a referendum petition that, with the requisite 17,269 signatures, would require the city council to repeal the ERO, or to put the measure up for a vote. They obtained 55,000 signatures.

“The city secretary, who has sole responsibility for certifying such petitions, signed off.

“Enter Houston city attorney David Feldman, who, with no legal authority, disqualified 38,000 signatures. Names that were printed, rather than written in cursive, were discarded; names that were written in cursive were considered illegible – just enough names to get the petition below the 17,000-signature requirement, at which point the city council and Mayor Parker rejected it.  And several citizens sued.

“But the city’s shenanigans had only just begun. Unsatisfied with violating the rights of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, the City of Houston has subpoenaed privileged communications of five pastors (none of them party to the lawsuit) who helped to organize the petition drive. Among other information, the city is requesting communications between the pastors and their attorneys pertaining to the ERO lawsuit, communications between the pastors and their congregants, and even the pastors’ sermons. …”

This, of course, is typical Democrat corruption, as well as a gross violation of the First Amendment’s free exercise clause – one of the worst we’ve seen to date. It is, unequivocally, “LGBT” tyranny.

And it’s rooted in madness.

Through the secular-“progressive” looking-glass, the term “sexual orientation” has, in a few short years, evolved to accommodate an ever-expanding fruit basket of carnal appetites. First it was “LGB” – liberal shorthand for “lesbian, gay and bisexual.” Then was added a “T” for “transgender.” That’s gender identity disorder – cross-dressing. You know, perverts like Clay Francis. (Today it’s “LGBTOMGWTFBBQ” or some such.)

Anyway, because it’s now illegal to “discriminate based on the basis of gender identity” in Houston, and since it’s the only “tolerant” thing to do, men who sign up for the ever-persecuted “LGBT” class have secured the hard-fought “civil right” to fully expose themselves to, and otherwise ogle, your daughters in the ladies’ room.
Yay “gay rights”!

But slow down there, Dad. According to the law, if you have a problem with Mr. Francis baring all to your baby girl, then you’re the problem. You’re a “transphobe” (“homophobia’s” evil twin sister, er, brother … whatever). Deck this sicko for terrifying your first-grader and you’re off to jail while “Colleen” is off to the “Human Rights Campaign” for a commendation as the latest victim of an “anti-LGBT hate crime.”
Rosa Parks in drag, I guess.

You can call yourself a “Christian,” Democrat.  While you’re at it, why don’t you just go lay down in your garage and call yourself a “car”?  You would be every bit as much the latter as you are the former.

Romans chapter one declares that you have NOTHING to do with Christ or Christianity or God.  You are under the wrath of God.  You DEMAND to be under the wrath of God.  And you’re going to get yours because the God who told us that the last days were coming and the Antichrist whose mark you will soon be taking was coming and that the hell He created for the devil and his angels was coming and that you’re going to burn in it forever and ever.

The Democrat Party is the Nazi Party in America.  “NAZI” stood for “National Socialist German Workers Party.”  It is the truly ignorant fool who doesn’t realize that if there were a “National Socialist American Workers Party,” it would be nothing more than a name-change for the Democrat Party.  Although God in heaven knows that there are a great many truly ignorant fools walking around in these last days before the coming of the beast whom they will worship.

Interestingly, the Nazi Party rose on the back of homosexuality.  Just read up on the Nazi Storm Troopers, the brownshirt- and jackbooted-clad SA, who pushed, shoved and punched Adolf Hitler to power in Germany.  Adolf Hitler rose to power through the fascism of homosexuality.  FACT.

These proto-Nazis were as queer as they came.  And to the extent they frowned on homosexuals, it was because they who loved to sodomize other men irrationally distinguished themselves with the men who willingly submitted to their sodomy.

The Nazi Party was rooted in homosexuality.

Homosexuals are rooted in fascism.  As even homosexuals themselves admit with their “Gayjahadin” tactics.

Just as the Democrat Party is rooted in them today.

It’s just a plain damn fact that homosexuals and liberals target those who oppose them the same damn way the Nazis targeted Jews.

And what we’re seeing is that Nazism does what Nazism is and vice versa as we look at the fruits of the Democrat Party and the hard-core homosexual fascism that is beginning to take place in an America I am now ashamed of.

It is as much the nature of the Democrat Party to betray as it is the nature of the Democrat Party to do what is vile in God’s sight.

Take, for example, the elderly and Medicare.  It is only a matter of time now before the Democrat Party betrays the elderly and abandons them for the young.  It’s actually already begun to happen as ObamaCare strips hundreds of billions of dollars out of Medicare to put into their new sacred cow.  Yes, it was the Democrat Party that imposed Medicare and made promises to people who are now elderly that the government would take care of them in their old age.  But health care is getting extremely expensive.  It is a fact that the overwhelming majority of health care expenses/costs take place in the last few years of life as the health of the elderly begins to break down and it requires more care and more expensive care to treat them and to keep them healthy.

D. James Kennedy prophetically warned, “Watch out, Grandpa!  Because the generation that survived abortion will one day come after YOU!”

Leftist Paul Krugman declared the fact that, yes, Democrats were going to turn on the elderly:

Eventually we do have a problem. That the population is getting older, health care costs are rising…there is this question of how we’re going to pay for the programs. The year 2025, the year 2030, something is going to have to give…. …. We’re going to need more revenue…Surely it will require some sort of middle class taxes as well.. We won’t be able to pay for the kind of government the society will want without some increase in taxes… on the middle class, maybe a value added tax…And we’re also going to have to make decisions about health care, doc pay for health care that has no demonstrated medical benefits . So the snarky version…which I shouldn’t even say because it will get me in trouble is death panels and sales taxes is how we do this.

Obama regulatory czar Cass Sunstein wrote:

“I urge that the government should indeed focus on life-years rather than lives. A program that saves young people produces more welfare than one that saves old people.”

He wrote:

“Other things being equal, a program that protects young people seems far better than one that protects old people, because it delivers greater benefits.”

The “Complete Lives” program behind ObamaCare kills old people by medical neglect and funds young people.

That’s why liberal intellectual and Obama advisor Robert Reich had this to say:

“Thank you so much for coming this afternoon. I’m so glad to see you and I would like to be president. Let me tell you a few things on health care. Look, we have the only health care system in the world that is designed to avoid sick people. And that’s true and what I’m going to do is that I am going try to reorganize it to be more amenable to treating sick people but that means you, particularly you young people, particularly you young healthy people…you’re going to have to pay more.

“Thank you. And by the way, we’re going to have to, if you’re very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive…so we’re going to let you die.”

A previous liberal, George Bernard Shaw, put it quite crystal clearly:

“You must all know half a dozen people at least who are no use in this world; who are more trouble than they are worth. Just put them there, and say, now sir or madam, now will you be kind enough to justify your existence? If you can’t justify your existence; if you’re not pulling your weight in the social boat; if you’re not producing as much as you consume or perhaps a little more, then clearly we cannot use the big organisation of our society for the purpose of keeping you alive, because your life does not benefit us, and it can’t be of very much use to yourself.”

So it’s already a matter of FACT that the Democrat Party is going to betray the elderly after seizing power on their false promises to the previous generation. It’s only a matter of when it is most politically opportune for them to betray that previous generation in favor of dishonest false promises to a younger generation.

The real motto of the Democrat Party is, “We’ll promise you ANYTHING to get your vote. That is, until we stab you in the back so we can promise the voters we want to replace you with anything to get their votes.”

Because the Democrat Party of today is the Party of Lucifer, and neither honesty nor  loyalty are the virtues of the devil.

Just like the last Nazis before them.

America is demanding the wrath of God be poured out upon it for its embrace of homosexuality.  And we’re getting what we demand and what we deserve.

The Ebola Presidency Of Barack Obama And His Diseased Democrat Party

October 17, 2014

I’ve been comparing Barack Obama’s presidency to a metastasizing cancer all this time.  But yeah, he really is a lot more like Ebola.  Because under this demonic fool’s “leadership,” America is bleeding out and infecting the rest of the world with weakness that emboldens the human viruses otherwise known as rogue regimes (such as Russia, China, Iran and North Korea) and terrorists who want to impose their caliphate on people too weak to resist the disease of their ideology.

Let’s recap Obama on Ebola.  Remember, he brought in health workers who had been infected with Ebola.  And he assured the American people with these words on September 16:

First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low. We’ve been taking the necessary precautions, including working with countries in West Africa to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States. In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home. We’re working to help flight crews identify people who are sick, and more labs across our country now have the capacity to quickly test for the virus. We’re working with hospitals to make sure that they are prepared, and to ensure that our doctors, our nurses and our medical staff are trained, are ready, and are able to deal with a possible case safely.

Obama told us Ebola would never get here.  And to further reassure us, he told us that even if it did, we were completely prepared for it.

And of course, Obama, being a wise and competent messiah, was completely correct and Ebola never got here.

Except, oh, wait.  It DID get here, thanks to his incompetence.  And no, we WEREN’T prepared here at home, given the fact that after Obama allowed an infected man to come here from West Africa, two nurses contracted ebola and we’ve had infected people flying around on huge passenger airplanes and sailing around on giant cruise ships.

The worst problem with the CDS is the worst problem with Obama – stunning and appalling ARROGANCE.

Remember Obama’s appearance like unto a god in front of the Grecian columns?  What did I say of Obama back in August of 2008?

It’s not that Obama wants to be pretentious; it’s simply who he is. [...]

But in that gigantic stadium (even without the echoes), with all those pretentious columns in the background, and with all those cheering people, even a humble speech will come across with the aura of one of those vain but petty dictators talking to the people while wearing one of those fancy dress military uniforms with  the big shoulder board epaulettes.

History now proves I was so freaking right it’s beyond unreal.

The term “malignant narcissist” applies quite well in describing this man.

Remember Obama’s nomination speech on November 5, 2008 in which he prophesied of his presidency:

“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.”

Yep, that’s exactly what happened, all right.  Messiah Obama healed the planet with the deity of his magnificence.

You Democrats are going to so burn in hell for believing this demoniac’s lies it’s beyond unreal.  The reason we’ve got “global warming” now is because God had to increase the temperature of hell for you Democrats who worship homosexual sodomy on an alter of 60 million murdered babies as you pray to socialist human government in place of the God of the Bible.  So get used to the heat, liberal, ’cause it will be the rest of your damned eternity.

Remember Obama assuring us about the Islamic State that has since established its own caliphate across the Syria and Iraq that Obama so godawfully failed in and now has its own freaking air force???

In a wide-ranging interview with the New Yorker, President Barack Obama compared Al-Qaeda-linked militants in Iraq and Syria to junior varsity basketball players, downplaying their threat as small-league. He also shared what he thought were the chances of reaching Middle East peace agreements.

New Yorker editor David Remnick pointed out to the president that the Al Qaeda flag is now seen flying in Falluja in Iraq and in certain locations in Syria, and thus the terrorist group has not been “decimated” as Obama had said during his 2012 reelection campaign.

“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama told Remnick. “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”

Remnick characterized Obama’s analogy as “uncharacteristically flip.”

Let’s just call it what it is, was, has been and will continue to be until the White House has been decontaminated of Obama’s moral stink and the millions of demons who now inhabit that place have been exorcised: the stunning personal arrogance of an appallingly wicked malignant narcissist.

Obama believes he’s a god.  And he’s a devil-servant of the god of this world (that’s Satan, folks).

Even doctrinaire liberals like WaPo’s Eugene Robinson are using the term “self-delusion” to describe the Obama regime’s pronouncements of “succeeding” in the war with ISIS they refuse to call a war.

After weeks, if not months, of dithering, they finally came up with a name for the operation to call this non-war: “Inherent Resolve.”  The problem is that that phrase is non-sequitur: there is and can be nothing “inherent” about “resolve.”  “Resolve” is a choice, an act of will.  Resolve is something you choose to have and never something you can be innately born having.  And the thing that is crystal clear – given the fact that not ONE general claims that Obama’s strategy of having no combat forces has any chance of succeeding whatsoever – is that Obama very clearly does NOT have any “resolve” of any kind, “inherent” or otherwise.

If the generals are saying anything, they are screaming that Obama’s “strategy” cannot succeed.

But that doesn’t stop Obama from dishonestly claiming that he’s succeeding when in fact his operation against ISIS is nothing short of one long, sustained FAIL.

It’s all nakedly and cynically political for Obama.  He doesn’t give a flying damn about American interests or US national security until AFTER the election.  Because politics is all that matters to this thug.

So we get with Ebola the same damn thing we got with Islamic State: a bunch of Stalinist pronouncements that had absolutely no connection whatsoever to the real freaking world.

Here’s an example from Obama’s handpicked CDC muckymuck along with a brief description of how Frieden got to be Obama’s CDC muckymuck in the first place (i.e., because he’s a naked leftist ideologue):

We seem to be one of the few nations not taking the spread of Ebola seriously. Perhaps we are just a smidge overconfident. When Mr. Frieden assured the nation that we would “stop Ebola in its tracks” earlier this month, he listed several protocols that would keep the disease from spreading. Few of those appear to have been followed.

Mr. Frieden was previously Commissioner of New York City’s Health Department. Highlights of his time in that post include an aggressive anti-smoking media campaign and the successful (and controversial) effort to stamp out trans-fats. Given his past, he may have unwarranted confidence in the power of government. Critics have called him an “overzealous activist.” In facing down the Ebola virus, we hope he is that and more.

So Frieden was appointed to be Obama’s CDC head because he was a reliable leftist ideologue political hack.  PERIOD.  He has proven that he is utterly incompetent at stopping Ebola.  But that is irrelevant to Obama.

The Chicago Sun-Times points out the incredibly contradictory statements coming out of the Stalinist Obama regime:

Frieden then: “We will stop it in its tracks, because we’ve got infection control in hospitals and public health that tracks and isolates people if they get symptoms.”

Frieden now: “Stopping Ebola is hard.” . . . “We have to rethink the way we address Ebola infection control.”

Here’s a memorable quote for you:

Frieden claimed that “virtually any hospital in the country that can do isolation can do isolation for Ebola.”

Sure it can.  But also remember that any brain-eating zombie will be extremely disappointed when they get their chance to feast on the contents of Obama’s skull and the skulls of all his damn advisors.

I could go on and on and on providing the stunningly arrogant statements coming out of the stunningly arrogant Obama White House.

We’ve got RoseAnn DeMoro, director of National Nurses United, on the record saying:

“Our nurses are not protected, they’re not prepared to handle Ebola or any other pandemics,” DeMoro said. “The protocols that should have been in place in Dallas were not in place and are not in place anywhere in the United States, as far as we can tell.”

So far, we’ve had two nurses confirmed with Ebola.  The second nurse flew on TWO passenger flights and the CDC that so blatantly assured us that they were the experts who were in charge of everything are now desperately searching for hundreds of passengers who were exposed.

If that isn’t bad enough, the aircraft she was on was NOT taken out of service immediately, but continued to operate:

The same plane used on Flight 1143 was used on an Oct. 14 flight from Cleveland to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The plane with tail number N22OFR later returned to Cleveland that afternoon before heading on a route from Cleveland to Atlanta and then back.

But, oops, it turns out that plane went on FIVE more trips:

Frontier now says it is notifying up to 800 passengers total, a figure that includes those on her October 10 Dallas-to-Cleveland flight, the return flight on Monday, plus five other trips taken by the plane before the airline took it out of service. Frontier says it’s telling those passengers to contact the CDC — which had said the risk to anyone on the return flight was extremely low — if they have any concerns.

For the record, the nurse, Amber Vinson, checked with the CDC and was told it was all right for her to fly:

A Dallas nurse who took a commercial flight from Cleveland hours before reporting symptoms of Ebola says that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention told her it was okay to fly.

But it just keeps getting better: a health worker who was exposed to Obama’s Ebola virus went on a cruise with 4,633 passengers and crew.

Now, if I wrote a book or produced a movie that described this kind of plot as to how the deadly disease spread, no body would bother with it.  Because nobody could possibly believe a government could actually be that criminally incompetent.

But of course that was before Barack Obama, the most incompetent, bungling, demon-possessed fool who ever lived.

Keep in mind, if those nurses and healthcare workers shouldn’t fly, THEN WE SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWING PEOPLE FROM WEST AFRICA TO FLY HERE, SHOULD WE???

I mean, Obama basically has issued a travel ban: only it only applies to Americans in America rather than to infected West Africans coming from West Africa to make us sick here.

But Obama’s policy is not based on sanity, but on political correctness.  It might hurt West Africa’s feelings if there’s a travel ban.  It’s better to risk the American homeland, instead.  Obama is viewing Ebola through his “legacy” rather than through his job as president of the United States with the duty of preserving American lives.

You want to put this into racial terms – the way the people who are demanding we keep exposing ourselves to Ebola rather than impose travel restrictions are – fine.  Let’s just point out the attitude of the Obama regime: Ebola is ravaging amongst the primitive black people, but we’re better.  We’re more intelligent and more advanced than those dirty blacks in Africa and we can treat Ebola where they can’t.  So there’s your racist angle for you.  As always, it’s LIBERALS who are being the racists, not decent folk who want to protect their nation from a terrifying disease that is clearly FAR more virulent than they’ve been claiming and that has no known cure.

Obama’s political ideologues like Frieden make the sweeping argument that a “total travel ban” would hurt our ability to fight Ebola.  Bullcrap.  Number one, NOBODY IS ATTEMPTING TO IMPLEMENT A TOTAL TRAVEL BAN; resources would keep pouring IN; it’s “OUT” that needs to be controlled.  They claim that ANY travel restriction is tantamount to a TOTAL ban, which is what Obama always does as he employs false narratives and false dilemmas to get his way.

So I welcome infected nurses to keep flying around America.  As long as infected Africans should have a chance to fly in from Africa, well, dammit, infected Americans should have a chance to fly around America, too.  I hope an infected person knocks on your damn door and comes in and coughs in your stupid, ugly face if you voted for Obama.  Because that’s the LEAST of what you deserve, DEMOnic BureauCRAT.

The right thing to do is to put everyone coming from West Africa through a quarantine process of at least 21 days.  And to restrict travel to the United States to those who have no signs or symptoms of Ebola after a quarantine.

Anyone who isn’t truly demon-possessed ought to be able to see by now that just ONE patient like the one who flew here thanks to Obama can wreak havoc with our entire medical system and bring the whole damn thing crashing down.

Think about it: Thomas Eric Duncan caused at least two nurses, possibly more, to become infected.  Those nurses and health workers have now spread the possible contagion to THOUSANDS.  ONE INFECTED GUY did that.  Let’s quit fooling around with this deadly disease.

A leading epidemiologist says that it’s only a matter of time before Ebola becomes airborne.  That would be a disaster that we would have to go back to the Black Death to compare to.  And no one will know it has happened until AFTER it has happened.

Just in case you hadn’t already concluded that the Obama regime is lying to you about Ebola and about every other damn thing it is doing, realize that the same Obama who appointed an ideologue to run his CDC just appointed an even BIGGER ideologue to be his “Ebola czar.”

That’s exactly what Obama did when he anointed Ron “Ku Klux” Klain, a Democrat thug political fixer, to be his expert on Ebola.

The Obama White House says it didn’t need a medical expert to head this operation; what they wanted was a leader.  Fine.  Hire a general or hire a CEO.  But no, what Obama did was hire a SHYSTER LAWYER whose only “leadership” was in covering Democrat ass.

It’s really quite fascinating: Barack Obama doesn’t see himself as having an Ebola problem; he sees himself as having a political problem involving Ebola.  So rather than get an actual medical expert who has dealt with pandemics before, Obama instead turns to a partisan political fixer.  This turd Klain’s job isn’t to solve the Ebola problem, it’s to enforce loyalty to Obama from all the bureaucrats and medical people who might otherwise start turning on the president and leaking information to prove what a complete disgrace Obama is.

Barack Obama and the Democrat Party don’t give one flying damn about you, about your children or about this country.  All of you are nothing more than a means to an end to these fascists.

You can’t trust Obama.  On Ebola or on ANYTHING.  The man has repeatedly demonstrated that he is a pathological liar and ideologue.

Fact about Ebola:

Rightfully, the Ebola virus is one of the most feared diseases in the world. Patients infected with Ebola contract something called “hemorrhagic fever” which essentially causes the body to completely deteriorate. In layman’s terms, the body basically melts. Blood seeps from the patient’s eyes, nose, mouth and other orifices. It is an incredible amount of suffering and a horrible death. There is no vaccine or proven treatment.

America’s destiny is to melt down the way an Ebola patient basically melts down.  We’re losing influence, we’re losing economic power, we’re losing military strength, we’re losing resolve, we’re just losing, period.

 

 

 

A Conversation About Women’s Bodies. Yeah, That’s Right. From a GUY.

October 15, 2014

I am not politically correct.  So life is easy for me: I am actually allowed to see and describe reality as it really is.

It wasn’t all that long ago that I first (inadvertently) tried on my first pair of “skinny jeans” and discovered that I couldn’t even get my CALVES through the thighs, let alone my thighs.

I was buying a new pair of jeans for the first time in a fair period of time – jeans being the sorts of things that generally last a while – and was frankly mystified by all the different styles that had popped out of nowhere while I was in fashion limbo.

I’m a weightlifter, and if that isn’t bad enough, I’ve just got naturally big legs.  So yeah, my solid legs didn’t go through the tiny little leg holes of the death camp pants very well.  I mean, what am I supposed to do, say, “Those lucky Jews in the 1940s…Good thing that nice man Adolf Hitler came along to help them get into those fashionable Brandy Melville clothes?”  I don’t think so.

So, with that experience in my mind, let me address this woman shopper’s experience.  And then let me talk about it after the article:

Teens Love Brandy Melville, A Fashion Brand That Sells Only One Tiny Size – Huffington Post
by admin | posted: October 15, 2014

Paytas described the experience in an email to Brandy Melville: “I didn’t get 10 seconds into the store when I was told ‘I would not fit anything’ and that I wasn’t allowed to try anything on because ‘I would stretch the clothes out.’” She added that many of her viewers have had similar experiences at Brandy Melville shops. Paytas declined an interview request for “legal reasons.”

“We can satisfy almost everybody, but not everybody,” said Longo. “The one-size-fits-most clothing might turn off somebody if they don’t walk into the store, but if you walk in you’ll find something even if it’s a bag.”

Whether fat-shamed directly or not, it’s evident that Brandy Melville customers feel the pressure, even by simply walking into a store. Take this sampling of customers lamenting their weight because of Brandy Melville:

NEW YORK — “Small,” reads the label dangling from the first tank top on the rack at the Brandy Melville store in SoHo. So does the one behind it. And the third, fourth, fifth — they’re all small. In fact, nearly every single piece of clothing in the store is either labeled “small” or “one-size.”

how to feel fat: brandy melville jeans

Typical Brandy Melville girls on Instagram.

brandy melvilleAt Brandy Melville, nearly all the clothes are small, though a medium will pop up here and there. To be able to shimmy into Brandy Melville’s only size of skinny jeans, a girl would need to have a 25-inch waist — that’s around a size 0 or 2, depending on the brand. Most skirts and shorts on the website are about the same size. Similar skinny jeans at teen fashion powerhouse Forever 21 span sizes from 24 to 30 inches. In the U.S., the average 16-year-old girl is approximately 5 feet 3inches tall, weighs about 138 pounds and has around a 31-inch waist, according to a 2012 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The battle to be thinnest could be dangerous. A 2013 study from researchers at Texas A&M found that girls feel the most pressure to be skinny when they compare themselves with their peers. More than half of teenage girls use “unhealthy weight control behaviors,” like skipping meals, fasting or vomiting, according to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders.

Rachel Simmons, co-founder of the Girls Leadership Institute, a national nonprofit group, said Brandy Melville puts teen girls through the “paces of the popularity jungle,” recreating the challenge of having to be the best and coolest in school.

im too fat for brandy melville and it breaks my heart

I would buy stuff from Brandy Melville but im too fat.

Whereas typically teenage girls need to come up with the money to buy the “cool clothes,” with Brandy Melville, cost isn’t a challenge. The clothes are relatively affordable. Skirts and dresses run from $20 to $40. Plenty of tops cost less than $30, and some halters cost as little as $11.

Since its arrival on the West Coast, Brandy Melville’s clothes have swept through high schools, attracting teen girls who want to be part of the waif club. Lani Renaldo, a freshman at the University of Southern California who graduated from a Santa Monica high school in the spring, said Brandy Melville clothes were unavoidable among teens in the area. They became necessities, she said.

“It was really uncommon to know somebody who didn’t have Brandy Melville,” Renaldo, who wrote a blog post earlier this year condemning Brandy Melville for leaving teens as outcasts, told HuffPost. “You had to own something from Brandy, and if you didn’t, it’s really weird.”

crying bc too fat to fit into brandy melville.. sigh

Welcome to the hottest teen clothing retailer in the U.S., where the garments are designed for just one body type: thin. Brandy Melville has stormed onto the teen fashion scene with its “one-size-fits-most” policy and whimsical California vibe. Despite its modest fleet of 18 stores in the U.S., mostly in California and around New York City, it’s one of the brands with the fastest-growing popularity among American teen girls, according to a semiannual survey from research firm Piper Jaffray.

Who is the Brandy Melville girl? One look at the brand’s website and Instagram account reveals her: young, white, skinny and long-legged.

With all the importance it places on teensy waists and thigh gaps, the Brandy Melville culture was bound to court controversy.

Brandy Melville makes me feel fat.

In 2012, YouTube star Trisha Paytas said she’d been shamed at a Brandy Melville store in California. In a video uploaded to her YouTube account, Paytas alleged that a store employee wouldn’t even let her try on clothes because of her size. She said she took down the video after receiving a letter from a lawyer representing Brandy Melville.

Regular teens aspire to one day be one of these Instagram girls, or at least look like them. Diehard fangirls treat the Brandy Melville girls like Internet celebrities, pinning Brandy Melville bags on their walls as decorations and Instagramming their caches of Brandy Melville clothes, explained Sharp. Teens will go to a Brandy Melville store just to take a selfie and share it, she said.

Brandy Melville did not respond to requests for comment from HuffPost. But in an interview with USA Today earlier this year, Jessy Longo, an executive at Brandy Melville, addressed the one-size policy, saying that if customers can’t fit in the clothes, at least they can buy an accessory.

Well, certainly most death camp inmates, anyway.

It literally pains me to read this experience of girls and young women: “I’m too fat.”  But they’re not saying it because they are actually “too fat,” but rather because they can’t fit into some stupid clothing label that markets to walking pencils.

I think of the young girls I know and I wish I could grab them and start shaking them until they understand that there are marketers who are trying to profit by catering to “cool kids” and there are “cool kids” who get to be “cool” for incredibly stupid reasons and probably feel as much pressure to stay “cool” as the girls who don’t feel “cool” but want to feel to become “cool.”

It’s a vicious cycle.  And it’s like global terrorism is an easier dilemma to solve.

Women look at a lot of things men do and conclude “How stupid.”  And of course they’re right; we’re flat-out nuts in many ways, aren’t we?  Well, here, the shoe is on the other foot.  And yes, women, don’t tell me you didn’t imagine a beautiful style of “shoe” when I used that expression.  When it comes to your body image, you girls are completely nuts.

Quit being conformed by fashion perverts and start being YOU.

I am a man who DELIBERATELY made my legs to big to fit into “skinny jeans.”  Because “skinny” is NOT what I as a man want to be, nor do I care what that hollow-eyed, scrawny androgynous male model in the ad looks like.  I want to be strong and muscular.  And if “skinny men” want to tell me I’m uncool, well, I will stare at them incredulously with a look of part astonishment and part pure contempt.  Because, no, I DON’T want to look like you, you weak, pathetic little twerp.

This isn’t about me, but here’s a picture of me so you can see the type of body that I have:

Untitled (2)

Please don’t send me “skinny clothes” for my birthday.  They’ll end up in my rag bag.  With the tags still on them.

And rest assured, I couldn’t get my ARMS through those Brandy Melville pants.  And I take that as a badge of personal honor.

I went through my own struggle with “self-image” that reverses many people’s experience.  When I was young, I was naturally lean and naturally athletic.  Never had any “I’m too fat” or “I’m too skinny” problems growing up.  As a young teen, I emulated my older brother and got into weightlifting.  And being bigger and stronger than the other boys never hurt my feelings.

But I got out of the Army with injuries.  In military infantry doctrine, you are what your body can do.  If you’re busted and can’t perform at a high level, you’re worthless.  If you can’t perform, then you’re simply not a man.  And I’d imbibed that without even thinking about it.  And so I hypercompensated when I got out of the Army by training too hard and gave myself new injuries on top of the ones from the Army.  And I gave up.  And I gained weight that was just fat.  And yeah, my body image suffered.  And my self-esteem suffered as a result.

I never wanted to just lose weight because I had never in my life seen myself as a “skinny guy.”

In my soul, I saw myself as fit and muscular.  That was always my vision of myself.

When I returned to that ideal of myself and began to work to make it happen, I was able to succeed in losing weight where I had been failing before.  Because what I really wanted to do was transform myself into my ideal for myself.  I had physical limitations because of my injuries.  But I discovered if I was realistic I could work around them and still advance toward my goals and actualize my vision of myself.  And I found that my body literally WANTED to return to the fitness I’d had as a young man.  It’s called “muscle memory.”  And praise God for being fearfully and wonderfully made according to Psalms.

You can do it if you want to and if you have a plan and have the resolve to make that plan happen.  It’s just a matter of time.  And anything that truly matters takes time and effort.

I never wanted to be like the “cool kids.”  I had higher standards for myself that frankly didn’t involve them.

If I want to sit at the “cool kids” table now, I’ll sit there and command the skinny little weasels in their skinny pants to get lost.

I tell my story to try to explain to girls why the opinion of the “cool people” shouldn’t matter.  Think outside the box!!!

I wish more girls could have that same attitude if their body-types are different from the death camp inmate girls who think they’re so damn “cool.”

As a weight lifter, I really can’t say I’m in touch with how “handsome” I am.  I’ve never been that in touch with that and what can I frankly do about it one way or the other?  But I do know that I’m what I call “spectacular.”  I invariably see a lot of heads turn when I walk into a room.  I know that there are women who find me attractive because of my physique and I also know that there are women who won’t waste a second glance at me.  I’m admittedly on the extreme side: there are those women who are “turned off” by a big body-builder-type guy; and there are women who are turned ON.

And may God abundantly bless the women who are turned on by a big, strong man’s body.

Now, if you truly prefer the body of Justin Bieber, that’s fine with me.  I won’t even laugh at you (well, okay, I won’t laugh at you much).  Fortunately, this world is big enough for all of us.

Enough about me and my story.

I gave my story just to point out something that it is just a fact of life, girls.  YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYBODY.  Which is what too many women too often try to do too much.  You are frankly a fool for trying.  So be who you are, please yourself and your God and your family who love you the most.  And if you do that, you will find that you will be very pleasing to the people who matter most in this world, I promise you that.   If you focus on being the best “you” you can be, rather than try to force-fit yourself into an artificial mold, somebody is going to seriously dig the best “you” you can be.

I gave my story to point out that it’s coming from a man who never wanted to be like everybody else, to fit into the mold of some marketing gimmick like Brandy Melville.  Don’t be a lemming who wants to look like all the other lemmings.  BE YOURSELF.

And I gave my story – as a GUY – to maybe get some woman somewhere to think outside of her “girl box” and consider a different way to look at herself and at her body.

I have come to learn that I don’t have an “ideal woman” when it comes to beauty.  And that’s because I understand that you discover beauty and appreciate it for what it is, you don’t invent it.  I can’t even describe it; I just know it immediately when I see it.

There are slender women I’m sure could wear those Brandy Melville clothes whom I find attractive.  But hot dang, some of the women I find the MOST attractive would NEVER be able to wiggle those magnificently voluptuous hips of theirs through any pair of skinny jeans.

I note that Brandy Melville’s concept of “beauty” means being “white” as well as “skinny” and “long-legged.”  If I may, the most beautiful women I’m seeing in my neck of the woods are Hispanic.  Damn, there are a lot of gorgeous Hispanic girls.  Anybody who thinks that the most beautiful women are European is an idiot whose concept of “beauty” can be casually round-filed.  There are beautiful women all over God’s earth.

You can be Asian, you can be black, you can probably be blue and be beautiful.  And the beautiful women from different cultures also have different body types from whatever the “white girl” ideal is.  What matters the most is that you are YOU.

It literally hurts me that some incredibly gorgeous women are struggling with their self-esteem because they don’t think they’re attractive according to the fashion Nazis.

How the hell did so many girls come to believe this stupid crap???

It’s like something out of “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”  It has absolutely no connection with reality.  It’s completely based on a warped perception of warped people who have anointed themselves as fashion gods.

And it’s only when you ignore them and even outright mock them that they will become irrelevant.

Truly beautiful women come in all shapes and sizes.  And I’m not being “spiritual” and talking about “souls” and I’m not being Disney and talking about “personalities.”  I’m just writing as a man who is appreciating a hot woman’s body here.

Like I said above, I as one guy truly don’t have a “type.”  Girls with big breasts, girls with small breasts, girls right in between, I’ve found some of all of you gorgeous.  Girls with slim figures, girls with full figures, some of you are hot and some of you are not.  If you think all men find all bone-skinny women attractive, you’re just wrong.

Some girls and women have a naturally slender body, but sometimes their bodies tend to lack a womanly shape.  Some girls and women discover that they have a naturally shapely and voluptuous body, but some of these find it harder to keep unattractive excess weight off.  Each body type has its plusses and its minuses.  Go with the flow.

There are three primary types of body for both males and females: ectomorphs who tend to be thin, mesomorphs who tend to be athletic and endomorphs who tend to be more shapely but heavier:

Rather than deceiving yourselves into believing that you should all fit into Brandy Melville clothes, try to realistically determine what kind of body you have and then work to make THAT body the most attractive that you can.

I assure you, endomorph girl, YOU CAN BE SO GORGEOUS IT IS BEYOND UNREAL.

But it starts with you being honest with yourself.  Don’t unrealistically try to force yourself to be something you’re not and then force yourself into clothes that you don’t fit into.

I found a site after a few seconds of searching that I found spot on: http://www.superskinnyme.com/endomorph-body-type.html

Here is the section that I want you girls to see and understand:

There is no way round this issue. Endomorphs will have a harder time losing weight. But lets be clear. No one is saying that endomorphs CAN’T lose weight, but that they will have to work harder to lose the weight. Endomorphs do not have to be overweight. They simply require more determination than perhaps a mesomorph would, to achieve the same goal. Endomorphs have to train hard and must eat healthily most of the time. Endomorphs gain fat quickly when eating the wrong types of foods because their metabolism can be unforgiving. They also find it difficult to lose weight through diet alone.

The good news is that endomorph women are often thought of as voluptuous and sensual because they go in at the waist, have large rounded breasts and have womanly curves in all the right places – when in shape, their curves create an allure likened to that of Jennifer Lopez, Sophia Loren and other celebrated and famous bodies. Some of the most beautiful women in show business today are endomorphs. In shape the female endomorph is unrivaled – toned and fit whilst being soft, sensuous and alluring. It’s a wonderful paradox only the female endomorph can fully achieve. And lets be clear, if you are a female endomorph trying to look like your polar opposite – an ectomorph (e.g. Kate Moss) – a body type that possesses little fat, little muscle and a small frame, producing a linear, narrow body shape. If you do manage to lose a lot weight (fat and muscle!) to somewhat resemble an ectomorph, it will never look as good on you as it will look on her. For her it is a natural state and she looks (and is) healthy, but you have beaten your body into submission, forcing your body to be >something it is not and you will most likely look (and feel and be) gaunt, ill and tired, instead of radiant and glowing. It just doesn’t work. Your goal should be to transform your body into the best it can be, not to reconstruct it into someone else’s body. You can be incredibly slim, lean and toned. You can even be petite. But you can’t be an ectomorph. Read more here about how much you can change yout body type.

Amen.

Please, girls, PLEASE.  Don’t let some ectomorph mafia brainwash you out of realizing your potential.  If you’re an endomorph female, you can literally soar above those most of those pencil girls.

And that isn’t to mock the ectomorph bodies.  If you can fit into those Brandy Melville clothes, goody for you.  Some of you girls look awesome.  And I drool over a fit mesomorph woman.

I take a little bit of personal credit for the woman who I believe became the most beautiful woman in my gym.  She was afraid lifting weights would make her “too big.”  I literally sat her down in the gym and gave her “the talk.”  I made her watch the men and watch them lift weights and tell me which ones were “big.”  And the point I wanted her to understand was that not very many men ARE “big” in the muscular sense.  My point is that it’s hard to put on pure muscle – even for men who have the male hormone testosterone.  It’s REALLY HARD for women to put on thick muscle.  Most women couldn’t do it if they tried.  Rather, weightlifting will sculpt a woman’s body, tighten it, hone it.  She’ll keep her softness where softness matters most on a woman, but her body will firm up in a glorious way.

Anyway, Jacqueline was a hybrid between an ectomorph and a mesomorph.  She was right between the two types.  And that woman started lifting weights with a basic routine I gave her.  And she just got more and more into it.  And she started learning and asking questions and developing her own routine.  And a pretty woman became a jaw-droppingly beautiful one.  She’s in that gym seriously lifting weights three days a week and hot dang they look good on her.

What I would encourage you girls and women to do is to correctly identify your body-type – which might be a hybrid between two types with a tendency toward one more than the other like Jacqueline above – and then look online for examples of beautiful women with your body type.  Get a picture in your mind of what you want to accomplish that’s based on what’s ideal for YOU.  And then work to unlock and unleash the natural potential for your type of body.

Weight loss is a matter of calories consumed versus calories burned.  I hate to diet, but I love to exercise.  The less you like to exercise, the more you better like to diet.  But you need to find the balance that works best for you and you need to find ways to stay active that you most enjoy.

What I hate to see is a girl or woman who has in ignorance believed a load of garbage and feels trapped by an impossible ideal that she can never possibly fit into.  An endomorph girl can never be happy trying to be an ectomorph, or vice versa, for that matter.  If you despair over trying to literally become another woman’s body-type, you won’t be able to succeed and you’ll give up in frustration.

The key is to accept your body’s reality – by which I mean understand your body type and its plusses and minuses – and believe in yourself.

Believe me, I’m rooting for you.  Because I LOVE to see a beautiful woman.  And the more of you beautiful women, the better, as far as I’m concerned.

It starts with recognizing that God didn’t make junk.  When He made you, He didn’t put a thin girl into a fat girl’s body.  Be realistic with who you truly are and it will be the first real step toward becoming the best “you” that you can possibly be.

It may be hard, it may be a struggle, but I assure you, YOU ARE WORTH IT.  YOU ARE WORTH THE EFFORT.  And if you have a goal in your heart and a vision in your mind, you can reach it.

And for what it’s worth, when you get that nice figure that is ideal for you and for your personal body-type, you may or may not be able to wear that Brandy Melville label, but you’ll look beautiful in a lot of other labels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s Wrong And What’s Right About ‘Left Behind’?

October 13, 2014

There is so much misinformation regarding the understanding of the Rapture and what it means to be “Left Behind.”  From ALL SIDES.  So let me get into it.

First of all, I keep running into this nonsense from those who deny the doctrine of the Rapture:

The doctrine of the secret rapture emerged during the early 19th century through the teachings of John Nelson Darby (1800–1882). Darby was one of the early leaders of the Plymouth Brethren movement, and his teachings became known as “dispensationalism.”

This notion relies upon the idea that the teaching of the Rapture of believers prior to the Tribulation never arose in Christianity until well into the 19th century.  And therefore it clearly has to be false.

If you believe that premise, I sure hope you don’t fly on airplanes or benefit from modern surgical techniques.  Or use a computer or have anything whatsoever to do with the modern world.  I mean, I hope you’re Amish.

One of the problems with this “The secret Rapture never existed prior to the 19th century and therefore it is clearly wrong” view is that the Bible ITSELF declares the following through the end-times prophet Daniel:

But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. — Daniel 12:4

Shut up the words of Bible prophecy until the time of the end, WHEN KNOWLEDGE SHALL BE INCREASED.

Unless you’re either Amish or an abject hypocrite, anyway.

If you believe in the increase of knowledge, have the consistency to realize that we’re assured of an increase in prophetic knowledge as well.  If not, shut up.  Because you’ve got a lot of chores to do, such as saddling your horse, milking your cow and whatever weird thing you’re doing with that sheep.

The second problem with this premise that the teaching of the secret Rapture never existed until the 19th century is that it is simply a lie.

First of all, it is rather easy to factually demonstrate that this teaching was being taught LONG before the naysayers claim.  As just one example, Joseph Mede (1586-1638) wrote a commentary about the Book of Revelation that was THE most popular book of his era outside of the Holy Bible itself.  Do you notice that the man lived in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries?  And he very clearly teaches what we’re assured was NEVER TAUGHT prior to well into the nineteenth century.  James H. Frere (1779-1866) and William Cuninghame (1775-1849) likewise taught a doctrine that we’re snidely lectured never existed until decades years after their death.

Those who tell you that the doctrine of the secret Rapture was invented by John Nelson Darby in the mid-to-late 1800s are documented liars and they are far more agents of Satan than they are agents of Christ.  Period.  You don’t lie like that in the name of truth.

But the doctrine of the Rapture exists long before even those Christian scholars such as Mede.  As I’ve documented before:

You might want to get a clue and realize that pre-millennialism is a) quite a bit older than the 19th century; and b) is quite a bit more attested by VERY recent scholarship than your ridiculous “19th century” garbage. Let me assure you that I have quite a few books in my own personal library about the rapture and the pre-millennialism that the rapture is part of, which date quite late into the 20th century and even into the 21st. Charles Darby is little more than a footnote in the presentation of this quite contemporary (as well as quite ancient) eschatology.

Pre-millennialism is the dominant eschatology in the Protestant church today, in terms of number of Christians who embrace it.

Let’s go to the fact that the word “rapture” (to seize or snatch) was translated from the Greek word “Harpazo” in 1 Thess 1:10 (which has the same meaning as the Latin “rapturo”) in his Latin Vulgate in 385. Just a LITTLE before the time you deceitfully claim, I’m afraid.

Let’s go to the writings of men such as Ephaim the Syrian, who wrote about 373 in a book entitled, “Antichrist and the End of the World”:

”We ought to understand thoroughly, therefore my brothers, what is imminent or overhanging. Already there have been hungers and plagues, violent movement of nations and sins, which have been predicted by the Lord.

Let us prepare ourselves for the meeting of the Lord Christ so that He may draw us from the confusion which overwhelms the world. Believe you me, dearest brothers, because the coming of the Lord is nigh. Believe you me, because the end of the world is at hand. Believe me because it is the very last time. Because all Saints and the elect of the Lord are gathered together before the Tribulation which is about to come and are taken to the Lord in order that they may not see at any time the confusion that overwhelms the world because of our sins.”

That’s just one particularly clear example from the Church Fathers. Papias – companion of Polycarp, the disciple of the apostle John – believed in the literal earthly pre-millennial doctrine. As did Papias, Irenaeus, Justin Martyr, Tertullian, Hippolytus, Methodius, Commodianus, and Lactanitus, Apollinaris of Laodicea, Melito of Sardis, Jerome, Gennadius, Hippolytus of Rome, Nepos, Ambrose of Milan, as well as others. Pre-millenialism was in fact the dominant view of the church for the first few centuries. It is the oldest eschatological view.

The same scoffers who deny the doctrine of the secret Rapture of Christ of all believers prior to the Tribulation also deny the Premillennial theology from which the Rapture flows.  But again, as I’ve pointed out:

The early church overwhelmingly held a view called “chiliasm” (which is the Greek word for “Millennium”), a view which directly embraced a literal seven year period known as the Great Tribulation, followed by the return of Christ to rule and reign for a millennium. Robert P. Lightner writes, “It is generally agreed by students of the early church that premillennialism was the view held by many in the post-apostolic age. That it is the oldest of the three millennial views is seldom debated….”

Tell you what: if you close your eyes hard enough, you can’t see a dang thing.  You’re blind.

These scoffers are themselves evidence that we’re in the end times:

Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.  They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.”  — 2 Peter 3:3-4

And here the scoffers and mockers are, right on cue.

Now, the fact that the Church Fathers were documented teaching this doctrine soon after the close of the New Testament canon, the fact that what I believe as a Premillennial, secret-Rapture-believing Christian is the EARLIEST view of the Christian Church, does not guarantee that it is the correct view.  Anymore than if it were the LAST one taught would guarantee that it is the false view.  But it does assure anyone who cares about the truth that the people who are lecturing us otherwise are liars as well as scoffers and mockers.

And you ought to give the Premillennial, secret-Rapture view a chance.

My major belief in the Rapture has nothing whatsoever to do with what Christian teacher believed in it when; it has to do with what the Bible teaches.

Let’s consider the Book of Revelation.  The word “church” or the plural “churches” occurs NINETEEN TIMES in the first three chapters of Revelation.  Then St. John – representing the experience of Christians on earth – is commanded to “come up here.”  And the church NEVER AGAIN APPEARS ON EARTH until chapter 22.  That is a fact that the scoffers and mockers and liars don’t want you to contemplate.  But where is the church during the Tribulation?  It is in heaven.  It is NOT on earth following the rapture in which believers “come up here.”

They don’t want you to contemplate that Christ, in one of his references to the church prior to the command to “come up here,” promises believers:

Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. — Revelation 3:10

That comforts me, because I know that I will be kept from the hour of testing – which is very clearly the Tribulation that the rest of the Book of Revelation describes – that shall come upon all of those who dwell on the earth who did not know Jesus at the time of the Rapture.  I know I’ll be in heaven with Christ Jesus following the Rapture that is so widely denied and mocked.

As for the rest of you, enjoy your Antichrist.  He’ll be showing up in Revelation chapter six.  Sorry, but I won’t be around to tell you, “Ha ha, told you so.”  Because Revelation 4:1 will be my cue to leave.

The “Christians” who deny and mock the Rapture are the from the same schools and basically the same “Christians” who mocked John Nelson Darby for pointing out that the Bible declared that there would be a national Israel.  We said there would be; the naysayers claimed there wouldn’t be.  This becomes incredibly important as we consider the rival theories.  In [her?] dismissive piece about the secret Rapture, which I quote from at the beginning of this article, Jeramie Rinne says:

Darby’s dispensationalism distinguished sharply between Israel and the church. The former was earthly, he believed, and the latter heavenly. God had two distinct peoples and separate plans for each. Thus Darby understood Old Testament prophecies as applying only to Israel, the earthly people of God. Rather than “spiritualizing” such prophecies, he expected a literal fulfillment of God’s promises to literal Israel. So when, according to dispensational thought, would God fulfill his prophecies to Israel? During the millennium (Rev. 20:1–8) after Jesus’ second coming.

So in order for God to resume these plans for Israel, Darby believed, God would first need to remove the church from the world. Hence arose the need for the secret rapture. Darby had in effect proposed something new: a two-stage return of Jesus. Jesus would first come to “rapture” the church, and then return again in visible glory.1

I submit that Rinne is being incredibly disingenuous.  Because it desperately needs to be pointed out that when Darby wrote in the 19th century, national “EARTHLY” Israel did not exist and in fact had not existed for nearly two thousand years.  And Rinne’s side mocked and dismissed Darby’s side when he argued that God’s Word guaranteed that national “earthly” Israel would be reborn.

It was one of the greatest miracles of the 20th century that a nation that had been dead for two millennia was reborn.  And reborn in a single day – May 14, 1948 – precisely according to the prophecies that Darby was proven to have interpreted rightly and Rinne’s side was proven to have interpreted wrongly.

You’ve just got to say more here.  Not only did national “earthly” Israel not exist, but the land that had once been Israel was a complete and utter and desolate WASTELAND inhabited only by a few nomads.  Mark Twain lived during the same period of time as Darby, and he described the land as it was in 1869:

“No landscape exists that is more tiresome to the eye than that which bounds the approaches to Jerusalem. Jerusalem is mournful, dreary, and lifeless. Palestine sits in sackloth and ashes”.

If this were a scientific laboratory and one scientist predicted an astounding thing that other scientists mocked and dismissed, and then the astounding thing happened exactly as it was predicted it would happen, you would be an absolute moron to believe the scoffing scientists.  Just for what it’s worth.

But these people simply do now have the power of truth in them to ever admit that they were wrong and maybe they ought to go back to the drawing board.  And so they literally mock with even greater foolishness than before.

Basically, the rival theologies which inspire the Rapture-mockers are Amillennialism and Postmillennialism.  They arose from the teaching of Augustine in the fifth century, when Augustine was realizing that a literal interpretation of Scripture made no sense because Israel had been destroyed and it didn’t look like it was ever coming back.  And so you had to mythologize the Bible to make any sense out of it.

And they depend on their system rather than on the Bible.  And if the facts don’t fit the system, so much the worse for the facts.

And in terms of Christianity, what they lacked was something that true Christians ought to have, something called “faith.”  Believing so that they can see rightly, rather than seeing so that they could believe wrongly.

The funniest thing is that it was actually Augustine himself who wrote the words, “Credo ut intellegiam” (“I believe in order that I may understand”).  It is a true shame the man couldn’t follow his own advice or he would have recognized by faith that God was not finished with Israel and that Israel was mentioned in last days prophecy and that therefore there would be an Israel in the last days.

So they are wrong both in terms of their faith and in terms of the facts.

But John Nelson Darby – and those who came before him in his tradition – certainly had the faith in the God of the Bible and His control of the affairs of men.  And so he was entirely right about the birth of Israel and he is just as right about the secret Rapture that the same Bible says is coming.  Darby did not “invent” the teaching of the secret Rapture; it had existed for the entire history of the Church.  What he did is systematize the premillennial teachings based on a literal, grammatical-historical hermeneutic that the other views dismissed.  His system turned out to be right and theirs is simply wrong.

Now, having hammered away at the scoffers who mock the secret Rapture of Christ in spite of the fact that Jesus warned them “I come as a thief” in passages like Matthew 24:43 (and see 1 Thessalonians 5:2 and 2 Peter 3:10) and that He will come in an hour that they do not think He will come (v. 44), allow me now to examine what is wrong with the proponents of “Left Behind.”

Please consider Matthew 24 and understand the flow of thought that proceeds from Jesus’ teaching.

The discourse begins with the disciples asking Jesus, “What will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:3).  And Jesus proceeds to explain to them what will happen prior to His glorious coming as King of kings and as Lord of lords according to Revelation 19:16.  Jesus says that deception will be the hallmark of the last days, being ultimately manifested in false messiahs (v. 5).  We’re foretold that there will be wars and rumors of wars (v. 6).  We’re told that race will rise up against race and people group will rise up against people group, and that famines and earthquakes will be the norm rather than the exception (v. 7).  And that these signs will begin to become worse and worse and closer and closer together, like birth pangs (v. 8).  We’re told that persecution of Christians and even martyrdom will become commonplace (v. 9).  And that there will be great apostasy as people who once claimed to be Christians prove that they never truly believed (v. 10).

And amidst a time of great false teaching, what had been the Law will be spurned and rejected (think protecting the life of babies; think homosexuals marrying one another that are viewed as being every bit as valid as the marriage that God ordained between one man and one woman).  See verses 11-13.

And we’re told that amidst all these frightening and disheartening signs, that missionaries will somehow continue their work until the gospel of Jesus is preached in every single language of every single people on earth (v. 14).

Now, these things are happening right now.  And they will get worse and worse during the Tribulation.  In the case of worldwide preaching of the Gospel, consider the two witnesses and the 144,000.  They will finish the job that missionaries prior to the Tribulation began and they will preach the gospel to the whole world.  See for example Revelation chapter 7.  But when we get to Jesus’ prophecy of the Abomination that causes desolation in verse 15, we realize that this is a specific act that the future Antichrist will perform in the future Temple which will be rebuilt according to Revelation chapter 11.  That temple is being prepared this very day (see the Jewish organization that is working toward that day).

Now, you might glance up at the quote from 373 AD by Ephaim the Syrian and understand that one of the reasons that there are more “last days whackos” today than there were in the past is precisely because things have truly become much more dangerous and of much greater magnitude.  Ephaim the Syrian saw a frightening world.  But it was a world that did not have nuclear weapons or global jihadist terrorism.  So you can start to understand why “Left Behind” might be more of a recent phenomena than it used to be because Jesus Himself explained it would be exactly so.

But up to this point in Jesus’ teaching, describing false prophets and wars and earthquakes and famines, we know we’ve always seen all of these things throughout history.  Now Jesus begins to describe things that clearly have not happened yet.

In verse 15, Jesus describes a future abomination of desolation in the Temple in Jerusalem.  That Temple was destroyed in 70 AD and has not since been rebuilt.  There will have to be a future Temple for this new abomination to take place.  And Jesus warns a future generation of Jews living in Jerusalem to flee the moment they hear that the coming Antichrist has entered the holy of holies and declares himself to be God.

The place to which Jews will flee has already been prepared.  It is called Petra (and see here).  It is also possible many Jews will also successfully flee to Bozrah.  When they flee from the Antichrist, Revelation tells us that God will supernaturally seal them in with an earthquake and keep them safe until the Messiah – that’s Jesus – returns to deliver them.

Jesus declares in verse 21, “for then there will be a great tribulation, such as has never occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall.”    It will be so terrible that if God Himself did not shorten these days, no human life will be left on earth (v. 22).

Then Jesus describes His own future return (as King of kings and as Lord of lords) in verses 29-30.

What is fascinating here is that every single human being will witness this return/coming of Christ.

Which strikes me as being just a little bit different from when He comes as a thief in the night.

This leads us to the “Left Behind” passage.  We’re told that “the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah” (v. 37).  Well, what were the days of Noah like?  They were a time of judgment and culminated in the judgment of the Flood.

Now let’s consider the “Left Behind” passage in that context:

Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. — Matthew 24:40

Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. — Matthew 24:41

Question: When will the one man in the field be taken?  When will the woman grinding be taken?  Answer: AFTER Jesus has returned as King of kings, that’s when.

Matthew 24:40-41 presents a vivid picture of what Matthew 24:31 teaches.  Let’s consider that verse of a Christ who has returned in glory sending out His angels:

“And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. — Matthew 24:31

Jesus also discusses such a “gathering” in the next chapter in Matthew 25:31-33

“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne.  “All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left.

And we’re told in the following verses (vv. 34-46) that the sheep that will be gathered to Christ’s right are righteous/believers and that the goats that will be gathered to His left are wicked/unbelievers.

So when does this event – the separation of the sheep from the goats, in which two men will be working in a field and two women will be grinding and one will be taken and the other left (behind), – happen?

It will happen at the end of the Tribulation after Jesus’ return as King of kings and Lord of lords, and just prior to the 1,000-year reign of Christ on earth known as the Millennium.

We will see a dramatic reversal of the Rapture, in which believers are raptured (the Greek word ‘harpazo’ translated in the Latin as ‘rapturo’ means “to seize by force, to suddenly and decisively snatch up“) and removed from earth prior to the Tribulation; because at then end of the age after Christ returns as King of kings, it will be the wicked who are taken in judgment and the righteous who will be “left behind” to repopulate the earth during the Millennium.

It’s a mirror image.  In the first Rapture believers are taken and unbelievers will be left on the world to go through the time of testing that Revelation 3:10 describes as coming upon the whole world; in the second one, it will be the unbelievers who will be taken in judgment.  And it is the Christian saints who were converted by the two witnesses and the 144,000 who physically survived the Great Tribulation who will be “left behind” to repopulate the earth with their Messiah ruling and reigning on earth from His Throne in Jerusalem.

That is what is actually being described by Jesus in the “Left Behind” passage of Matthew 24:40-41, rather than the Rapture of the Church that will precede the Tribulation.

As a biblical Christian, I believe in BOTH “raptures.”  And I am ready for the first one.  Because it will be for me and for mine.

The people who mock and deny the doctrine of the Rapture of the Church are asserting that nothing has changed, nothing is getting worse, everything is going to keep going on as it always has.  But anyone with a brain in his or her head ought to realize that things are getting worse – and that they are getting worse very much like birth pangs – that we’re living in an age where the phrase “signs of the times” ought to take on a whole new meaning from any generation that ever lived before, and that the world is being prepared for something that is coming and coming soon.

There’s a quote that seems particularly appropriate here: “Free your mind and your body will follow.”  Put your trust in Jesus and you will one day suddenly find your body rushing upward to meet Him in the air at the Rapture.

For your own further study, the three key Rapture passages describing the transformation of believers before the Tribulation are 1 Corinthians 15:51-52, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 and John 14:-3.

I hope to see you in the air at the Rapture.  And if you happen to recognize me, please fly by me on your way to Jesus and say hi.

 

 

 

 

 

Hey Secular Humanist Liberals: YOU’RE The Thing The Vicious Jihadists Most Despise And Why They’re Fighting Us. And Why They’ll Win.

October 6, 2014

It’s an interesting thing to hear a liberal spin the liberal narrative.

Why do the Muslims hate us so?  Why do we have this war on terror?

Well, we wouldn’t if Bush were gone.  We wouldn’t if we elected a Democrat president.  We wouldn’t if we had a liberal in the White House and he could talk and reason with them instead of go to war with them.

Okay, POOF, you got your wish, liberals.  For six long freaking years now, you’ve had your wish.

Now, in a perfect world, the left would be saying, “Dang, it looks like we were wrong.  We need to stomp these roaches, just like you guys on the right have been saying.”

But no perfect world has any liberals in it.  So we’re stuck with the horrible world we’ve got.  And liberals WILL NOT admit their way failed.

Nope.  Six years after actually leaving office, we find that George W. Bush is STILL the president.  And six years after taking office, Barack Obama is still in campaign mode, running against the evils of George W. Bush as if it hadn’t been his policies that have just miserably melted down into scrap slag under his failed watch.

But just for the record, for the few of you who aren’t moral roaches and are capable of receiving actual FACTS, in 2009 when Obama took office, it is a FACT that he told his generals he was completely pulling the troops out of Iraq on his timetable over their fierce objections.  In 2011, when he made good on his stupidity and pulled the troops out, the generals publicly stated it would end in “absolute disaster.”  Which of course it did.  During the 2012 presidential campaign, Obama actually SAID for the record that he did NOT want any status of forces agreement and that he did NOT want troops in Iraq.

But now Obama is saying it wasn’t his fault we pulled all of our troops out of Iraq and that he tried oh-so-hard to get the status of forces agreement he actually publicly said he never wanted and that it is somebody else’s fault Iraq is now melting down EXACTLY AS GEORGE BUSH WARNED IT WOULD IF WE ELECTED A MORAL DAMNED IDIOT.

If you are a liberal, you are as immune to reality as the devil is immune to decency.  You are a liar and you worship the god of lies who is also the god of flies.  And the day is soon coming when you will burn in hell for what you did to the world.  As of today, the blood of more than sixty million babies whom YOU murdered are crying out against you.  And one day soon you will scream in visceral agony for a trillion times a trillion millennia for every single nanosecond that those babies would have had of life on this earth if you had not cast your vote to brutally murder them in your abortion mills.  Just for starters.

But I’ve pointed all that out before.

What I haven’t really pointed out is why these jihadists hate us so much.

What they truly hate is liberalism.

You see, according to liberals, it is our standing up to them that they hate, so we shouldn’t fight them.  But in reality it is the sodomy and Hollywood and perversion of liberalism that they hate, and so liberals should cut off their own damn heads so the terrorists won’t have to do it for them.

The rise of militant Islamic jihadism has followed the rise of the American Civil Liberties Union.

I’m trying to remember the violent Islamic jihadism prior to when the US Supreme Court decided to separate God from America when it separated church from state in 1947 in its Everson vs. Board of Education decision.

Even the left traces the rise of militant Islam to the 1960s.  You know, when our culture was just starting to turn really toxic with all the “free love” and the insatiable lust for drugs that characterize the left.

I remember reading a book titled, “Why the Rest Hate the West.”  And a quote:

“When you see some people here dressed in American-style clothes, you are seeing the bullets of the West.”

Liberal culture is more fanatically missionary than any other that ever arose on earth.  It WILL spread and it will NOT stop until it is stopped by violence.

And then it will hypocritically market movies about the very violence that it idiotically claims to hate.

It is one of those amazing things to watch all the liberals who have made their careers waving guns around in their damn movies claiming to be anti-gun in their press statements.

And, oh, yes, one of the things that the ardent Muslims most despise about the West is the vile hypocrisy that characterizes it since the left hijacked our culture.

So, when Muslim American kids are beginning to flood to Syria to fight with ISIS, THIS is what they are pointing out as their reason for fighting America:

“We are all witness that the western societies are getting more immoral day by day. I do not want my kids being exposed to filth like this …”

Muslims didn’t rise up against America or against western societies when those societies were rightly guided by divine values.

They rose up against us when our culture became morally toxic under liberalism.

They didn’t rise up when America was the greatest military power in the history of the world.  They rose up when we started to expose their kids to the cockroach raw sewage of American political and moral liberalism.  When we were godly and strong in the 1950s they didn’t rise up; when we bent over and begged to please be sodomized so we could pervert marriage while radical Sandra Fluke feminists demanded free birth control so they could slut around with their young men, THAT’S when they rose up in abject hatred against us.

They didn’t rise up against us when we were the kind of people who fought and won wars; they rose up when we became the liberals who fretted and dithered and issued contradictory orders to keep our troops from winning.

I’m just going to state what the Bible clearly teaches: God’s wrath is stocked and burning against America right now according to Romans chapter one.

God’s wrath is burning against America because you voted for the Democrat Party and because you voted for Barack Obama.  You voted for the sodomy party and the president of sodomy, and you’re going to reap the whirlwind after you sowed the wind.

That above quote comes from the book of Hosea.  That book depicts God as a raging lion, ripping its prey (Hosea 5:14; 13:4-8).  Who is God’s prey?  Israel.  But wait a minute: Israel was the good guy, right?  And it was those vicious Assyrians who were the bad guys.

Wrong.  Israel was characterized by material prosperity and total moral bankruptcy.  Israel had abandoned God for the sexually depraved Baals.  Israel had abandoned God and in its wickedness demanded God’s wrath fall upon them.

And God was just about to use the most vicious Assyrian monster as His agent to rip Israel’s guts out unless Israel repented.

Which of course Israel did not do.

Which is why the ten tribes of Israel are called “the lost tribes of Israel.”  They were so destroyed so completely that they were never seen again to this very day.  And only God alone knows where they are.

America is about to go down the same way that Israel went down.  And while Israel is the people of God, America is not.  God will not restore America when this nation falls.  We’re going to fall down harder and uglier than any nation in history ever fell.  And we’re not going to get back up.

And just as God used the vicious, ruthless, savage Assyrians to wipe out Israel, I believe that God has rabid Islam as His instrument of divine wrath upon America.

The Assyrians would literally rip pregnant women open and murder mother and child together.  How’s THAT for your coming abortion, Democrat???  Oh, you’re going to get the abortion you deserve in SPADES.

One of the most violent nations in antiquity was the Assyrians. Their records and monuments preserve the evidence that they were a brutal and violent nation. Assyrian reliefs show prisoners being impaled, Assyrian soldiers flaying captured soldiers, beheadings, mutilation, and dismembering.

In wars some of the most vulnerable victims are the women and children. On one Assyrian monument, women and children are portrayed with their lifted arms, lamenting the violence and the destruction of their city. Archaeologists have uncovered many mass graves in places where battles occurred and one common feature of these mass graves was the presence of bones of women and children who were buried along with the men killed in battle.

One of the most violent and brutal conducts in times of war was the Assyrian practice of ripping open pregnant women in order to expose their fetus.

And, oh, yeah, the Assyrians also were fond of beheading, according to that same article.

Not that that ought to ring any bells or anything.

And please don’t worry that these ISIS guys come from the exact same place and have the exact same values as the Assyrians.

I mean, after all, times have changed and things don’t happen the way they did in Bible times and all.

While Obama mocks Bible times and declares his ways are far better than any mere God of the Bible’s ways.  The God of the Bible stands opposed to homosexual perversion, but Obama stands above God and declares right from wrong and truth from falsehood.

Either the God of the Bible will burn in hell, or Barack Obama and every single demonic fool who voted for him and supported his presidency is going to burn in hell.

Once America was a “covenant nation.”  On D-Day, FDR implored God to deliver America as our soldiers landed on those historic beaches at Normandy.  There was a time when we were fighting against genuine spiritual evil and our national leadership understood that we were fighting genuine spiritual evil.  Our national leadership recognized three types of nations: the covenant, the atheist and the secular.  One was evil, one was helpless against evil and one and only one was strong enough to stand as it took its strength and its courage and its values from the God of the Bible.

But now we mock that covenant.  And vicious judgment is coming for you as surely as it came for Israel which rejected God before we did.

America is doomed because it is so depraved and so sick that not only God despises us but even Satan despises us because we have become weak and cowardly and apathetic.

Under the effects of a generation of liberalism, you are too flabby and weak to defend America in any way, any shape or any form.  Unless it is your idiot’s contention that it was liberals who stood up for a strong, powerful military while conservatives wanted it to be weak and gutless.

One of the things that are considerably wiser leadership recognized a generation ago was that a secular America could not win a war of “asymmetric zeal.”  They realized in their wisdom that an America that had degenerated from “sacralization” to secularization would not possess the spirit to rise up and fight even for its own survival.

I’m calling for fifty million fervent liberals who are willing to die in human wave attacks in Syria for the honor of their pharaoh-god king Obama.  That kid in Chicago is willing to go there and die for what he stands for; where in the hell are YOU, liberal?  Where the hell ARE you, you gutless, weak, degenerate cowards?  What are the powerful moral values of your secular humanism that are going to motivate you to rise up and if necessary die for?  And of course I’m mocking you because you liberals don’t stand for anything and you don’t have any courage to actually do anything and that is why we are DOOMED because of your liberal pathetic gutless weakness.

‘I Think, Therefore I Am’ For Dummies

October 2, 2014

I was at my gym yesterday and saw something hilarious.

Now, understand, I was laughing in sympathy with this poor woman [nearly] as much as I was laughing at her.

A beautiful Porsche convertible parks right in front of the gym and an attractive woman gets out.  She did not appear to be the result of a ninth generation of inbreeding by any means.  I assumed she was coming into the gym (after all, she parked right in front of the front door to it).  But instead, she starts walking around the building.

Not yet wanting to do my next set of grunting while repeatedly lifting a heavy object for no particular reason, I’m watching her walk around the gym.  ‘Where in the world is she going?’ I thought.  There isn’t much for a fair distance down the road.  There does happen to be a liquor store nearby; maybe she’s planning on getting soused before her workout?  We’ve all got our “unique” (that’s another name for “weird”) routines, after all.

Well, that wasn’t what it was.  Instead, she was just trying to find the door.  She’d somehow not seen the double glass doors that were nearly directly in front of where she’d parked and had instead walked over to the fire escape exit on the opposite side of the front of the building.  She pulls on the door several times and discovers that it is locked on the outside.  And then amazingly continues walking on further in the wrong direction around the side of the building.

At this, one of my friends runs over and taps on the glass.  He points to where the door is.  She sees him.  She appears to understand.  She turns around and starts heading in the correct direction toward the door. But she still doesn’t quite get it right.  Because there’s another set of doors between the main entrance and the fire escape that has never once been opened the entire time I’ve been a member of the gym.  That’s where I always park my motorcycle, in fact.

So the woman is now standing in front of these doors – which she’d walked past the first time – trying to figure out how to get around or climb over my motorcycle.  My cruiser bike is eight-and-a-half feet long; it completely blocks the doors that remain shut whether I’m parked there or not.

Greg to the rescue again.  He again runs over and taps on the glass.  At this point the woman simply has no clue what to do.  So he actually proceeds to run over to the doors and opens one of the them for her.  Which I believe I mentioned was nearly directly in front of where she’d parked her Porsche.

You might ask where I was when this poor woman was in distress and Greg was valiantly trying to guide her into the gym.  Why, I was laughing like a hyena, of course.  And I’m a chronic sufferer of the debilitating handicap of not being able to laugh hysterically and do anything else at the same time.

The attractive woman who had driven up in the beautiful Porsche and did not look at all like the ninth generation of inbreeding finally made it through the door with the most sheepish look in the world on her face.  And I’m just smiling innocently and sweetly at her with – it is my hope – only the barest hint of “Must… not … burst into laughter…” look on my face.

She still wasn’t through wandering the wrong direction, I couldn’t help but notice.  After making arrangements to do her workout at the front desk, she zigged when she should have zagged and wandered into the free weight pit on one side instead of the lockers and cardio area to the other side.

Ah, the tenuous grip we have on our dignity.  So difficult to erect, so easy to dismantle.

Okay, I might sound a bit cruel here.  But I’d just had a conversation with one of the pastors at my church that ought to explain why I viewed this woman’s travails as so hilarious.

This particular assistant pastor has his hand in a cast.  Why is his hand in a cast?  According to his explanation, “Because I’m stupid, that’s why.”

He had managed to get overly excited and slammed his hand down on a table that he’d forgotten was there.  And the final score was table one, hand zero.

Trying to cheer him up, I recast the story of the woman caught in adultery for him.  In this version, it was about the woman caught in the act of being stupid.  And the mob was just about to stone her for stupidity when Jesus showed up and said, “Let the one among you who has never been a bonehead cast the first stone.”  And of course, everyone in the mob, having themselves been a bonehead, all put their stones down and absent-mindedly wandered off wondering what in the world they’d been doing just before they’d picked up those rocks.

Rene Descartes came up with the expression that led to the explosion of Western philosophy: “Cogito, ergo sum.”  Or, “I think, therefore I exist.”

There’s just one problem with this formula, however: namely, few if any of us humans really do ever actually think very dang much.  And if we have to think in order to exist, well, you can understand why our species is in so much trouble.

There’s a story about Descartes.   After writing down his most famous thought, he went to a tavern and celebrated by having a few tankards of ale.  When the barkeep asked him if he’d like another, he said, “I think not.”  And then he dematerialized.  It’s probably not true, but it seemed worth telling.

Anyway, how many of us humans actually THINK?  For 99.999% of the human race, if somebody recited Descartes’ formula and claimed, “I think, therefore I am,” a spouse or family member would deny the first premise – “You don’t either think!” – and blow their whole argument for existing away.

Yes to existing, a big fat NO to thinking.

So it occurred to me that we humans need to re-write the “I think, therefore I am” formula to match our actual experience.  So here is my version:

I can’t say I actually think, but I do stupid stuff all the time for which I constantly suffer the consequences.  Therefore I exist.”

Okay.  It admittedly lacks the punch and pizzaz of Descartes’ version, but it does have the virtue of being considerably closer to actual reality.

For the record, I write certain information on my hanging wall calendar.  Well, I forgot to turn over my calendar from September and wrote events on Wednesday’s and Thursday’s slot on the calendar.  Which is to say I basically entered appointments for September 31st and September 32nd.  Fortunately, I ran out of empty spaces for September or I likely would have just kept going to September 33rd and beyond.  I mean, you’ve got your Mayans who were able to develop and maintain incredibly sophisticated and accurate calendars even back in the stone ages, and then you’ve got people like me…

Well, at least I didn’t break my hand this time.  Although I did once cut off part of my right index finger in one of my more brilliant attempts to refute Descartes’ formulation: no, I don’t think, but I’ve got to exist in order to cut off my danged finger, don’t I?  So nyah nyah nyah, Rene Descartes!  Whose the dummy now?

Why Obama’s Secret Service Has Failed So Miserably

October 1, 2014

We have seen over these last several years a complete meltdown in the Secret Service in the reign of Pharaoh god-king Obama.  The details are simply astonishing.

On September 19 a fence-jumper made it all the way to the East Room.  And then the Secret Service actually lied about how far the intruder got and how massively they screwed up.

In any other country that man would have been a terrorist with a bomb instead of a knife and he would have blown up our White House.

Shortly before that, the Secret Service allowed an armed felon to ride on an elevator with the Pharaoh god-king.

Before that, we had seven bullets that struck the window of Barack Obama’s private residence but went unnoticed for days.  Obama’s youngest daughter was inside at the time of the shooting.  It wasn’t even the Secret Service who noticed the bullet holes; it was a cleaning lady who observed broken glass.  It turns out that agents reported the gunfire but were told by their superiors to stand down.

Before that, eleven agents on Obama’s security detail were sent home after a week of drinking and sleeping with prostitutes while on duty.

After that, despite promises to get their act together and reform the agency, we had an agent on duty in Amsterdam become so drunk he was passed out in a hallway while on duty in a hotel.

That is nowhere near the full list of scandals, for what it’s worth.

They talk about “a pervasive culture of cover-up.”  Agents were told over and over, “Do not file any written report.”

Which is the exact same thing that is going on in all of Obama’s other scandals.

You look at the history of Secret Service screw ups and you tell me that the president of the United States has ever been placed in so much danger in any other administration.  I mean, the Secret Service has had a few issues, but nothing like this.  NOTHING like this.

The question is why this meltdown has happened during the rule of our Pharaoh god-king.

There are two reasons, with one being unique to the Secret Serve and the other being endemic to the cancer that is Obama’s presidency.

As to the former, imagine you are a Secret Service agent.  You have trained your entire professional career to be the absolute best at security and you have risen to the apex of your profession.  You have a rare level of pride in yourself, your professionalism and the renowned agency you serve.

Then you get to your assignment.  You are handed a bag of fecal matter and instructed to guard that bag with your life.

Do you think you’d feel at least slightly deflated?

THAT is a major part of the reason the Secret Service has so miserably collapsed during the Obama regime.  These professionals know what a sack of foulness Obama is.  We’re not talking about his race, of course, in spite of whatever blatant lies liberals want to spew because they are the spewers of lies; we’re talking about his loathsome personal character, his utter lack of integrity, his malignant narcissism.

What the Secret Service now have to protect is a disgrace.  And these professionals know it.

Do you know what the difference between the sack of fecal matter and Obama?  The sack of fecal matter draws flies and Obama tells lies.

Oh wait, never mind…

Lord of the flies

So if I’m a Secret Service agent and I’m told I have to either protect Obama or protect the sack of fecal matter, I would sigh, shrug my shoulders, resign myself to despair and ask for the sack.

And if I was then told that all the more senior agents had already chosen to guard the sack and I’d have to serve on the Obama detail instead, that’s when they’d hand me the bottle of booze to help get me through the shame of the next hours.  Which explains all the Secret Service agents drunk on the job.

It has always been the highest and most prestigious honor for a Secret Service agent to be chosen to serve on the security detail of the president of the United States of America.  Until now.

They are trying to do their best at guarding Obama, but you have to imagine the poor morale of guarding a truly dishonorable man.

The second reason is much more endemic and also serves to explain why ALL of Obama’s regime is failing, from his ObamaCare to his IRS to his intelligence community.

Let’s take the Secret Service.  A big hullabaloo was made over the fact that Obama had selected the first female Secret Service director ever.  I mean, wasn’t that just so wonderful?

You know what I would have preferred?  The best Secret Service Director ever.

It is simply an appalling fact that the very worst and most basic security lapses have occurred with Julia Pierson running the show.

I’m not in any way trying to claim that a woman couldn’t be the best director; I’m claiming that in being determined to find a woman Obama ignored the vast majority of the candidates who should have been considered for that job.

That’s always the problem with race or gender preferences; you end up with the most PC candidate rather than the best candidate.

Do you know what Obama is looking for whenever he appoints a senior-level bureaucrat for an important federal position?  The same damn thing Hitler did: personal fealty to the Führer.

That is why we’ve had massive screw up after massive screw up and nobody ever gets fired.  Because these bureaucrats weren’t put in their jobs because they were competent; they were put in their jobs because they would lie and cheat for Obama.

Why wasn’t Kathleen Sabelius fired when the ObamaCare rollout was so miserably screwed up it literally became a joke?  Why wasn’t Hillary Clinton destroyed over the Benghazi fiasco?  Why wasn’t Eric Holder fired when guns that HE put into Mexican drug cartel members’ hands were used to murder a US Border Patrol agent and then Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for refusing to allow them the materials necessary for congressional oversight?  Who was fired and criminally prosecuted for the political targeting of conservatives by the IRS?  Obama just threw his whole intelligence community under the bus and claimed “they” screwed up; so who the hell has been FIRED?

In Julia Pierson, in Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sabelius, in Attorney General Eric Holder, in IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, in Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki, in Director of Central Intelligence John Brennan, you have people who are willing to lie for their messiah and cover up his crimes that would otherwise have gotten him impeached years ago.

That’s all that matters to Obama.  Because while real leaders try to fix the problems, Obama only cares about fixing the blame.  While real leaders always accept responsibility and never claim credit, Obama always claims credit and NEVER accepts responsibility.  And that cancer has affected the entire government and all of its agencies and all of its personnel.

That’s why the Secret Service is so completely screwed up.  The same reason our health care system is completely screwed up and the same reason our intelligence community is so screwed up and the same reason the whole country is so screwed up.

Only the Secret Service is cursed with the responsibility to guard the turd who has done all the screwing up.  And that distasteful burden is eating away at their souls.

So please, everyone, please give the men and women who risk their lives the dignity and honor they deserve and render your very best latte salute to your Secret Service…

Obama latte salute2.

Fwiw, I’m sure those Marines would readily choose to salute the aforementioned sack rather than Obama, too.

‘They’ Underestimated The Threat Of ISIS: Our Liar-in-Chief’s Avoidance Of Personal Responsibility Is Pathological. And Demonic.

September 29, 2014

You voted for this meltdown in the Middle East, and now you’re going to get it.

It’s coming here, of course.  Just this week, an African-American criminal who decided to convert to Islam when he learned that he could be every bit as wicked as he’d ever been AND be “religious” beheaded a woman and attempted to kill and behead another woman.  Alton Nolan had changed his name to Jah’Keem Yisrael, had a Facebook page that screamed jihad and the beheading of infidels, and was fired from his job “after he repeatedly threatened to kill female co-workers if they did not ‘conform to his version of Islam.’”  Oh, and he had a picture on his Facebook page of himself standing in front of a mosque giving the ISIS hand signal.  You know, all before initiating the very first beheading of an American on U.S. soil in the name of Islam in our nation’s history.  But what the hey, nothin’ to see here, folks.  And Obama and his thugracracy is going to call it “workplace violence” much the same way they did when a Muslim Major who had been in contact with al Qaeda murdered 13 soldiers and one unborn baby and wounded thirty others while screaming “Allahu Akbar” and carrying his “soldier of Allah” business cards.

We find that the FBI did exactly the political will of their messiah Obama.  Just like they’re doing with the IRS now and just like what they did with Benghazi.  After Major Hasan did his “Allahu Akbar” shoot-em-up terrorist trick, we learned that the FBI had ALL KINDS of warnings about this terrorist murderer.  But in their political correctness they utterly failed to understand the role of Islam in terrorism and failed to act on the evidence they had when they had a chance to do so.  Because that’s the damn way Obama wants it and if you belong to a union – i.e. if you work for the damn federal government – you do your thug chief’s thug bidding.

In reality, we have had TWENTY domestic terrorist attacks since Obama took office.  I don’t believe ANY of them have been acknowledged by our liar-in-chief for what they have been.

Get used to getting beheaded, America: because there’s already been a different man arrested in a different “beheading” incident just in Oklahoma.

Liberals will be thrilled: because the people that the rabid terrorists most want to murder are the ones that liberals also most want to murder: Christians and people who believe in Judeo-Christian morality.

My God, we ought to redefine the 9/11/2001 terror attack as an act of workplace violence.  I mean, after all, all the 3,000 people who died were at their workplace, right?  And it was violent, wasn’t it?  I mean, just like what we always called the terrorist bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma back in 1995.  The victims were at THEIR workplace and it was violent too.  So we’ve never actually HAD a terrorist attack in America.

All we need is Obama’s lies and we can completely redefine the whole damn universe if we want to.  And all you have to be is a pathologically dishonest fool and “truth” is a rubber thing that can be bended and twisted into any shape you like.

The Benghazi attack exposed Obama’s lie that he had decimated al Qaeda and basically won the war on terror.  So what did our pathological liar-in-chief do?  He falsely claimed a video was responsible.  Because who could possibly have known that terrorists would choose “9/11″ as the date for a terrorist attack?  And how could months of specific warnings and pleading after pleading after pleading by the soon-to-be-murdered ambassador for more security be adequate to either get our Americans out of there or at least give them some security???

So Obama was re-elected for manufacturing a completely false and dishonest story about a “spontaneous mob protest” over a youtube video getting out of control rather than the pre-planned, carefully coordinated and expertly conducted terrorist attack that it was.

Re-elect Obama.  He won the war on terror.  He said so.  He promised if you like your national security, you can keep your national security.  And we all know Obama would never lie to you.

The dishonesty of this administration, the willingness to put the lives of the American people at risk for no other reason than Obama’s political expediency, is mindboggling.

The man is utterly and appallingly wicked.  he has no decency, integrity, or virtue whatsoever.  He brazenly lies without shame or honor.

Obama is doing the same deceitful thing yet again as he dishonestly references “the Khorosan Group,” which for the official record is CORE AL QAEDA.  Obama lied to you, America.  He claimed as his ploy to get re-elected that he had won a war that in fact he had surrendered from and walked away from and abandoned.

And everything and everyone that exposes the fact that Barack Hussein Obama is a liar and the worst kind of cynical, posturing political opportunist just has to get thrown under the bus.

Obama: “They” Underestimated ISIS
Doug Mataconis   ·   Monday, September 29, 2014

Last night on 60 Minutes President Obama said that the United States had “underestimated” the threat posted by ISIS/ISIL in the past and that the full scope of the threat the organization poses until very recently when it became to overrun the Iraqi Army and establish something resembling a state:

WASHINGTON — President Obama acknowledged in an interview broadcast on Sunday that the United States had underestimated the rise of the Islamic State militant group, which has seized control of a broad swath of territory in the Middle East, and had placed too much trust in the Iraqi military, allowing the region to become “ground zero for jihadists around the world.”

Reflecting on how a president who wanted to disentangle the United States from wars in the Middle East ended up redeploying to Iraq and last week expanding air operations into Syria, Mr. Obama pointed to assessments by the intelligence agencies that said they were surprised by the rapid advances made in both countries by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.

“Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Mr. Obama said on “60 Minutes,” the CBS News program, referring to James R. Clapper Jr., the director of national intelligence. Mr. Obama added that the agencies had overestimated the ability and will of the Iraqi Army to fight such Sunni extremists. “That’s true. That’s absolutely true,” he said.

In citing Mr. Clapper, Mr. Obama made no mention of any misjudgment he may have made himself. Critics have repeatedly pointed to his comment last winter characterizing groups like the Islamic State as a “JV team” compared with the original Al Qaeda.

But he rebutted critics who say his refusal to intervene more directly in the Syrian civil war and his decision to pull all American troops out of Iraq in 2011 had created conditions that allowed the rise of the Islamic State. Instead, he pointed a finger at Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, until recently the prime minister of Iraq. “When we left, we had left them a democracy that was intact, a military that was well equipped and the ability then to chart their own course,” Mr. Obama said. “And that opportunity was squandered over the course of five years or so because the prime minister, Maliki, was much more interested in consolidating his Shia base.”

By contrast, he praised Mr. Maliki’s newly installed successor, Haider al-Abadi, whom he met in New York last week, for assembling a more inclusive government that may undercut Sunni support for the Islamic State. Mr. Abadi “so far at least has sent all the right signals,” Mr. Obama said. “We can’t do this for them.”

But he was measured in that assessment, saying there had been “some progress” by the new Baghdad government. “I wouldn’t say great yet,” he said.

Mr. Obama conceded that his strategy would be less likely to succeed in Syria, where he is working at odds with the government rather than in tandem. Mr. Obama has called for President Bashar al-Assad of Syria to step down, but now the two share an enemy in the Islamic State. The United States’ plan relies on trying to build up a separate rebel force that can take on both Mr. Assad’s government and the Islamic State, but Mr. Obama dismissed as “mythology” the notion that he should have done that two years ago.

The President’s comments are being perceived by made observers and analysts as an effort shift blame in the argument over who may have been responsible for not being on top of the situation in the Middle East, and in some sense to the through the intelligence community under the bus, specifically by referencing statements by Director National Intelligence James Clapper from last week. In those statements, Clapper did say that he had underestimated the fighting ability of ISIS fighters and, in tern, overestimated the will to fight of the Iraqi Army. That, however, is a far way from saying that the intelligence community didn’t properly assess what was going on in Syria and Iraq before this summer, and Eli Lake reports that the President’s remarks are already receiving some push back:

Reached by The Daily Beast after Obama’s interview aired, one former senior Pentagon official who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq was flabbergasted. “Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bullshitting,” the former official said.

(…)

Still, other senior intelligence officials have been warning about ISIS for months. In prepared testimony before the annual House and Senate intelligence committees’ threat hearings in January and February, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the recently departed director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, said the group would likely make a grab for land before the end of the year. ISIS “probably will attempt to take territory in Iraq and Syria to exhibit its strength in 2014.” Of course, the prediction wasn’t exactly hard to make. By then, Flynn noted, ISIS had taken the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah, and the demonstrated an “ability to concurrently maintain multiple safe havens in Syria.”

The ability of ISIS to hold that territory will depend on its “resources, local support, as well as the responses of [Iraqi security forces] and other opposition groups in Syria,” Flynn added. He noted that while many Sunnis likely opposed ISIS, “some Sunni tribes and insurgent groups appear willing to work tactically with [ISIS] as they share common anti-government goals.”

Flynn was not alone. Clapper himself in that hearing warned that the three most effective jihadist groups in Syria—one of which he said was ISIS—presented a threat as a magnet for attracting foreign fighters. John Brennan, Obama’s CIA director, said he thought both ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra, al Qaeda’s formal franchise in Syria, presented a threat to launch external operations against the West.

It’s worth noting that January was when President Obama was referring to ISIS and other groups that had spun off from “core” al Qaeda as the “jayvee” team in what seemed at the time as a way of saying that they didn’t pose nearly the threat to the United States that they would like to think, or that al Qaeda did in the time before September 11th. I’m not sure how much I’d read into those January comments, though. To some degree, it seemed to me at the time that they were part of an Administration strategy to diminish the importance of ISIS/ISIL internationally. It may not have been a wise strategy, but I’m not sure that, in and of themselves, the President’s remarks in January were an indication that he didn’t take see the group as a potential threat. As Lake notes, if that’s what he actually believed then he apparently wasn’t paying attention to his own intelligence briefings.

That being said, the President deserves criticism for attempting to pawn off responsibility for missing the ISIS threat on the intelligence community. This is especially true given the fact that “they” appear to have been well aware of ISIS long before the summer and, presumably, were briefing the President on the matter as warranted. At the very least, it is a marked difference from the idea expressed in Harry Truman’s famous maxim that “the buck stops here,” meaning that the President is ultimately responsible for everything that happens under his watch. Even if it were true that the intelligence community dropped the ball here, which is most certainly what the President was implying in his interview last night, the President is the one who should take public responsibility when something goes wrong. If it turns out down the road that personnel changes are warranted because of what happened, then that’s a different issue. As a broad matter, the President, any President, owes it to the American people to take responsibility for what his Administration does and what it fails to do. Instead of that, however, the President is asking us to believe that if something went wrong with regard to our response to the supposed ISIS threat, it wasn’t his fault. That’s not leadership.

Our soldiers and our generals and our intelligence professionals have no confidence in their commander-in-chief’s leadership.  Period.

When I served in the military, I heard a formula about leadership that is common in today’s business world: real leaders always take responsibility; they never take credit.  Obama has turned that formula on its head.  He is an antileader.  The way he is an antichrist.

Real leaders try to fix the problem; Barack Obama tries to fix the blame.

Our military and our intelligence professionals know that Obama will send them to die.  And then blame them for their own deaths.  Just like he did in Benghazi.

Obama is still appallingly trying to tell the same lie that he has been telling since Iraq went to hell under his watch.  Note that Obama BOASTED that he had removed the US military from Iraq prior to Iraq going to hell; note that Obama took credit for ending the war.  You know, when he was telling the same lies I document above about winning the war on terror and decimating al Qaeda.  Mind you, it is a documented historical FACT that Obama had a strategy to pull out all American troops over his generals’ objections from the moment he took office.  It is a documented historical FACT that Obama specifically denied ever wanting to have the “status of forces agreement” that he now deceitfully claims was the reason he pulled all of our troops out of Iraq and exposed that region to invasion by ISIS.  It is a documented historical FACT that generals correctly predicted that Obama’s policy of abandonment would end in “absolute disaster” back in 2011 when Obama was treasonously doing the very thing they said would end in disaster and which in fact led to disaster as we know now.  And it is a documented historical FACT that George Bush had predicted this very disaster back in 2007 if the American people were stupid enough and depraved enough to elect a fool and disgrace like Obama:

“I know some in Washington would like us to start leaving Iraq now. To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States. It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to al Qaeda. It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale. It would mean we’d allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan. It would mean increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.” — George W. Bush, 2007

Obama appoints people at the top who will lie for him.  Period.

James Clapper is already a documented liar:

Wyden: “…give me a yes or no answer to the question: Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions, or hundreds of millions of Americans?”

Clapper: “No, sir.”

Wyden: “It does not?”

Clapper: “Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently, perhaps, collect, but not wittingly.”

We of course now know that James Clapper, Obama’s Director of Central Intelligence, lied.  We know that the NSA was in actual fact collecting and storing bulk metadata on millions of American’s phone records, and had established methods for capturing a vast amount of email and Internet data from innocent Americans, as well.

As an aside, even the ACLU has acknowledged that Obama has been FAR more of a fascist than the hated George Bush ever was on usurping and abrogating civil liberties.  But “Democrat” stands for “Demon possessed bureaucrat” and to be a Democrat means to be a complete and unmitigated HYPOCRITE who demonized and still demonizes Bush when your own Führer is and has been so much worse than Bush ever was it’s unreal.

James Clapper is still on the job in this administration for one reason and one reason only.  He has lost all credibility and forfeited any legitimacy, yes.  But he is a man who is willing to lie for his boss and cover up his boss’ crimes.  And THAT is what Obama values, rather than the trust of the American people or rather than a competent executive.

Obama can literally say or do anything and have an “expert” to back up his impossibly deceitful version of reality.

On the other side of that equation of personal and professional dishonor is  Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.  Unlike James Clapper, he put the security of the United States of America before Obama.  Which means he had to go.  Which is why he was one out of more than nine senior generals purged by Obama.

By the way, given the fact that the United States under Obama clearly had absolutely no idea that the ISIS threat was coming, according to Obama, how the hell is it that Obama believes he has complete and certain intelligence that he can know precisely what is going on in Iran as he negotiates that nation into a nuclear state???

Barack Obama is the sort of pure demagogue who shrilly claims that there is a “war on women” when the fool won’t even say that there is a war on ISIS.

Steve Kroft: Are you saying that this is not really a war?

President Obama: Well, what I’m saying is that we are assisting Iraq in a very real battle that’s taking place on their soil, with their troops. But we are providing air support. And it is in our interest to do that because ISIL represents sort of a hybrid of not just the terrorist network, but one with territorial ambitions, and some of the strategy and tactics of an army. This is not America against ISIL. This is America leading the international community to assist a country with whom we have a security partnership with. To make sure that they are able to take care of their business.

I mean, holy crap, why doesn’t the Republican Party just start using drones to blow up women and fighter aircraft to bomb women all the damn while denying there’s a freaking war on women???  Then they could be like the Nazi we’ve got in our White House right now.

It’s interesting that Obama actually dragged CBS’ 60 Minutes ratings by 57 percent from what I heard.  The prior week the show had over 18 million; with Obama they got 9 million.  People are understanding that they’ve heard this blathering liar’s blathering lies before and they’ve heard the sweetheart interviews where nobody asks Obama the questions that they would have been rabidly demanding if a Republican were president.

If Obama can manufacture a name like “the Khorosan Group” to conceal the truth that we are still dealing with a very alive and well core al Qaeda, I have just as much right to come up with a name that exposes the reality of the Obama presidency: now it’s “the Hussein Terror Network.”

The Zombie ‘Spirituality’ Of Atheism

September 24, 2014

The Los Angeles Times ran an interview with one of the atheists who demonstrates himself to be the sort of true fool as only one who denies the reality of God can be.

This guy’s particular hook is that you can be an atheist and “spiritual” too.

Then we see what atheist “spirituality” looks like:

Was it the drug Ecstasy that opened up spirituality for you?

It definitely was. I wouldn’t call that the true experience of self-transcendence that is the focus of the book, but it was profoundly liberating. It convinced me it was possible to have a much better life and be a much better person, and some action was required to figure out how to be more that way more of the time. It’s certainly something you can’t recommend without serious caveats.

Okay, let’s recap.  Any form of “spirituality” that does NOT rely on the sort of drugs that men slip into women’s drinks to make them easy to rape is the “esoteric dunghill of religion.”

This fool Sam Harris teaches that the only path for an atheist to become “spiritual” is to ignore the “serious caveats” that are the obvious results of shutting reality off with drugs.

You need to get the joke that is atheism here: THESE are the people who mock Christians for not living in the real world!!!

There’s nothing new under the sun, the Bible declares, and it sure nailed it with atheists: they’ve been offering this “version” of reality for some time.  In the 1960s it was Timothy Leary with his “Turn on, tune in, drop out” approach.  And so today it is the secular humanist left that is championing the destruction of America through legalized drugs and the drug addiction that will come with it.  Because how in the hell else can these perverted, degenerate people have any chance at being “spiritual” otherwise???

Atheism is parasitic.  It cannot exist unless it has some superior worldview to emulate even as it mocks the very thing that it is emulating.

One example is the first rise of atheism as carried out in a vicious orgy of violence a.k.a. The French Revolution.  One of the leaders of that atheism descent into hell was stabbed to death in his bath by a woman hoping to end the endless beheadings.  And Marat’s death was celebrated in a painting as follows:

At the height of the Reign of Terror in 1793, David painted a memorial to his great friend, the murdered publisher, Jean Marat. As in his Death of Socrates, David substitutes the iconography (symbolic forms) of Christian art for more contemporary issues

So the very people who most denied Christ were reduced to trying to depict their hero as the very Christ they mocked and hated and denied.  Because at their cores they are hypocrites and liars and have neither shame, nor honor, nor decency, nor virtue, nor integrity of any kind.

That’s all atheism can do: cynically and perversely exploit the genuineness of the very thing it mocks and denies in order to have any pseudo-legitimacy whatsoever.

There is no atheist art.  There is no atheist music.  There is no atheist culture.  There is no atheist morality.  There can be no law based on atheism.  And there very definitely isn’t any atheist “spirituality.”  All they have is an obscene, grotesque mockery.

Augustine wrote, “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in You.”

The great scientist and mathematician Blaise Pascal said, “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.”

Atheists implicitly accept this God-shaped vacuum in every human heart, this restlessness, that God installed until we find our rest in Him.  But they propose to fill their voids with drugs instead of with the Spirit of the God who made them.

America’s Disgrace-in-Chief Reveals His Naked Contempt For The Military He Just Sent To War

September 24, 2014

I don’t have words for such an act of disgrace:

Obama latte salute2.

I can only compare it to the same guy just a few weeks ago when he gave a speech about how heinous and evil Islamic State is after they had just beheaded an American on video for all to see. And then went golfing 8 minutes later and was seen yukking it up on the golf course.

It is widely agreed that it was those beheadings that ultimately forced Obama’s hand to stop ignoring the Middle East he had allowed to become a fiasco by doing NOTHING – and by making one false assurance after another that he had terrorists on the run – that forced America back into the war Obama took so much damn credit for getting us out of.

If you’re going to order men to war, you treacherous coward, the LEAST you can do is value your military more than your damn latte and pretend to show them the dignity and respect they deserve.

Update 9/25: As usual, the psychotic left that so rabidly despises George Bush is pointing to none other than George Bush to justify the behavior of their messiah Obama.  I mean, dude, if you think Hitler is a bad guy, DON’T POINT TO HITLER TO JUSTIFY THE BEHAVIOR OF YOUR HERO, OKAY?

I could jump on the horns of the dilemma and say that they both ought to be impeached, but it turns out that there are a few things that make these two salute situations very different.

The first is that Obama is carrying a latte cup while Bush is carrying his dog who is essentially a family member.  Which would you say is easier to toss into the trash on your way out of the plane?

NBC in its propaganda effort to protect their messiah Obama cited a picture of George Bush trying to salute with Barney in his arms says Bush.  They say that Bush should have put Barney on a leash.  Well, have you ever tried to walk a short-legged dog off the steps of an airplane ramp?  Unlike the coffee cup that could have and should have been trashed, SOMEBODY had to carry Barney off that plane.  And Bush did it himself rather than insult a Secret Service agent and have him carry the dog.

The second thing is that – despite the fact that Bush was carrying the larger and more awkward bundle of Barney versus Obama who only had a damn coffee cup in his hand, Bush STILL managed to salute with an empty right hand as the photo shows.  Which is to say that Bush came CONSIDERABLY closer to rendering a proper salute than Obama even though Bush had a much more substantial burden to carry than Obama had with his stupid coffee cup.

But it’s the third thing that makes the cake: when was the Bush photo taken?  It was taken on June 26, 2001.  Which is to say it was taken only five months into the Bush presidency and it was taken four months before America was attacked and President Bush found himself a president at WAR.  What was awkward, if not cute, prior to 9/11/2001 when America was attacked and Bush ordered the men who saluted him into war is rightly a national disgrace now.

This is similar to another of Obama’s grievous displays of his contempt for America.  George Bush loved playing golf.  But when the left attacked him for golfing while he was sending our sons and daughters into war, what did Bush do?  He had the character to stop golfing and never played another round during his presidency.  He sacrificed something he genuinely loved for the good of his nation.

Let’s look at that comparison, too.  Obama – as I already pointed out above – was on the golf course smiling and laughing only EIGHT MINUTES after describing the horror of beheaded journalist James Foley.  He was back on the course AGAIN within less than a day in spite of the deserved criticism for the round he had just played.  Then he later blamed the media for his “bad optics” as a man who pathologically refuses to accept responsibility for ANYTHING.  Obama is a man completely devoid of decency or integrity.  Since becoming president, in spite of the fact that he has been a president at war just like Bush was, Obama has played nearly 200 rounds of golf.  Compare that to professional golfer Tiger Woods, who has played 269 rounds of golf during the same period.  Obama’s behavior is not only a sick joke; it’s a national disgrace of a president who WILL NOT DO HIS JOB AND DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE COUNTRY.

Obama had just ordered America back into war.  I mean, he had JUST ordered America back into war when he delivered this shame of a salute.

You tell me that the left wing media wouldn’t have gone bat-poop ballistic if Bush had given that disgrace of a salute with that damn coffee cup in his saluting hand if Bush had done that the day our military was fighting in Afghanistan after 9/11.

Could some propaganda hack show a picture of Bush golfing and then claim that Obama wasn’t doing anything Bush hadn’t done?  Yeah.  Their are plenty of “journalists” dishonest enough to do that.  Would those Goebbels hacks point out the differences that make Bush so much better than Obama it’s not even silly?  Absolutely not.
