Fascist Alert: Did Nixon White House Threaten Bob Woodward During Watergate? Because Obama White House Just Threatened Bob Woodward.

February 28, 2013

I don’t know which is more amazing: the mainstream media’s worship of Obama, or Obama’s thin-skinned, petty, vindictive nature revealed against the very few journalists who refuse to treat him the way TASS treated Stalin.

As most of you know, Richard Nixon was a very bad guy.  He was a creepy monster who had an enemies’ list.  The word “Nixonian” describes a political thug.

The question I have is whether Nixon ever used his White House to threaten Bob Woodward while he and fellow reporter Bernstein were building the case that would topple him.

It’s an interesting question, given that a president of the United States is threatening one of the most famous journalists in the world:

Bob Woodward says he was threatened by White House
Posted by CNN Political Unit

(CNN) – Veteran journalist Bob Woodward said Wednesday he was threatened by a senior Obama administration official following his reporting on the White House’s handling of the forced federal spending cuts set to take effect on Friday.

“They’re not happy at all,” he said on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” adding that an e-mail from a senior administration official – who he would not name – communicated a message which caused him great concern.

“It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this,” he said.

Woodward penned a 2012 book reporting that the idea for the spending cuts, known as the sequester, originated with the White House. It’s a claim President Barack Obama originally denied, but the White House has since acknowledged.

But it was language that he used in an op-ed published over the weekend in The Washington Post that drew what he said was the Obama administration response.

“[W] hen the president asks that a substitute for the sequester include not just spending cuts but also new revenue, he is moving the goal posts,” Woodward wrote. “His call for a balanced approach is reasonable, and he makes a strong case that those in the top income brackets could and should pay more. But that was not the deal he made.”   Headlined “Obama’s sequester deal-changer,” it was widely cited by Republicans seeking to avert the across-the-board cuts without a tax increase.

“The fundamental question here the president has to decide – does he wanna be president of a political party or does he want to be president of the United States?” House Speaker John Boehner asked at a Tuesday news conference. “It is time for leadership.”

Obama, however, has argued for an approach that “balances” spending cuts and tax increases.

“I’ve laid out a plan that details how we can pay down our deficit in a way that’s balanced and responsible,” he said at an event in Virginia the same day. “We have the plan right on a website, the White House website. Everybody can go see it. It details exactly how we can cut programs that don’t work, how we can raise money by closing loopholes that are only serving a few, as opposed to the average American.”

While the days now turn to hours before the cuts kick in on Friday, Republicans and Democrats have not engaged in the sort of negotiations they have held before deadlines in previous fiscal crises.   Woodward said on CNN that the White House objection to his reporting has no basis in facts.

“It’s irrefutable. That’s exactly what happened,” he said. “I’m not saying this is a moving of the goal posts that was a criminal act or something like that. I’m just saying that’s what happened.”

CNN extended multiple invitations to the White House to appear on the “The Situation Room,” including after Woodward began his interview, but the invitations were not accepted.

But a White House official who would not speak if named said late Wednesday, “Of course no threat was intended.”

The official said the email Woodward referenced “was sent to apologize for voices being raised in their previous conversation. The note suggested that Mr. Woodward would regret the observation he made regarding the sequester because that observation was inaccurate, nothing more. And Mr. Woodward responded to this aide’s email in a friendly manner.”

The e-mail had Woodward “very uncomfortable to have the White House telling reporters you’re going to regret doing something.”

“Let’s hope it’s not the strategy,” he said.

I wonder what would have happened if George Bush had ever threatened a journalist like that.  Betcha the media would go ballistic and demand his impeachment for his assault on the 1st Amendment freedom of the press.

I actually had the gumption to write a long, LONG – because Obama had done so many things that were blatantly fascist – article on Obama as a fascist.  And it’s amazing to how much fascism this tyrant demagogue has been up to since.  Obama is a petty tyrant who uses law enforcement as a way to reward his friends and punish his enemiesHis blackshirted and jackbooted thugs raid at will.  He is a fascist who routinely places himself above the law and above the Congress.  In fact he just bypasses Congress altogether when he is not abrogating their authority completely.  Obama recently dictated that the Congress was in recess when Congress’ own rules said they were NOT in recess.  And in so doing has already dictated that all other branches of government are irrelevant under his Fuehrership.  The judiciary shouldn’t feel neglected; Obama has abrogated their authority and undermined them, too.  His healthcare takeover very much DOES include death panels among other appalling lies, thank you very much.  Obama routinely uses executive orders to grant himself and his regime unprecedented powers.  And he and his fascist crony capitalist buddies have put America into so much debt that benefits so few Obama-connected rich that it is beyond unreal.

I don’t even have to venture into the “Obama is a far worse fascist than Bush EVER was” statement regarding foreign policy.  I’ll just let Obama’s kill list which allow him to murder American citizens without trial and without any due process speak for itself.  Liberals would have been catatonic with outrage if Bush had done this, but then again to be a liberal is to be a hypocrite as much as it is to be a fascist.

If you look into Obama’s civil liberties record and compare it to Bush’s, Obama is so much more a fascist than Bush ever was it is positively unreal.  But liberals LOVE their dictators to be fascists, no matter how much they hate the other side and no matter how much they slander and demonize them.  And they love it even more when their soon-to-be-fascist-dictators use demagogic rhetoric to demonize their predecessors.

But anyway, threatening the press – which means threatening the four or five reporters who are actually trying to report the truth to the American people – check.

The beast is coming.  And Obama paved the way for his arrival as no other human being ever has.

Fearful Signs The New Pope And A Radical Homosexual Clergy Could Be The Force That Leads The Catholic Church Into Evil In The Days Just Before The Beast Comes

February 27, 2013

I’m going to say something from the very outset: my title is somewhat disingenuous.  I don’t have any evidence that the new pope is evil; after all, I don’t even know who he IS yet.

But I DO know that many Catholics and religion reporters are saying that right after the first pope to resign in over 600 years – which for the record is a very long time – we now need a younger, more aggressive pope who can take control of the Vatican administration and be part politician, part CEO.  The need for great theology is now largely deemed secondary to this Catholic Church facing so many crises.

VATICAN CITY — When Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger took the name Benedict XVI upon becoming pope, it was a nod to sixth-century St. Benedict of Nursia, who had lived for several years in a cave in Italy.

As Pope Benedict prepares to end his papacy this week, his critics say the challenges he’ll leave to his successor are the result of him living in a cave of his own.

Benedict’s intellect and successful role as a spiritual leader for the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics is not in doubt, say Vatican experts and observers. But recent blunders and the poor handling of festering scandals indicate Benedict may have been far too immersed in scholarship and theology over his nearly eight-year tenure when what the church needed was a CEO.

“There was a time when the pope was a kind of king, and then, more recently, a spiritual leader,” said Alistair Sear, a church historian in Rome. “Perhaps now we will see an age of the pope first and foremost as an administrator.”

And I can’t help but think of that incredibly fascinating prophecy about the papal succession.  Because it held that the very next pope after Benedict would be evil – literally “the Black Pope.”  And once the Catholic college of cardinals votes for such a young, energetic administrator who isn’t all that interested in Catholic theology, it’s not like they can change their minds and vote him out.

Many have wondered if the final pope who would come (i.e., this pope right after Pope Benedict) would be the False Prophet of Revelation if not the Antichrist himself.

And it could just be that he will be.  It’s certainly starting to look a whole lot more likely given Benedict’s bizarre resignation in the wake of such massive scandal of homosexuality at the very highest levels of the Church.

The resignation of Pope Benedict stunned the world.  And it is equally stunning that two of the cardinals who were to choose his successor are caught up in terribly depraved sexual scandals and the coverup of those depraved scandals.

And there is even very real speculation that Pope Benedict may well have resigned because of a report he had received detailing a cabal of homosexual cardinals right inside the Vatican itself.

And that report mentions that the still secret Vatican report on the damage caused by these homosexual cardinals – some of whom were apparently being blackmailed by people outside the Church itself – was preceded by another damning report about a profound and profoundly disturbing takeover of the Catholic Church in Poland by homosexual priests.

The fact of the matter is that a vast homosexual underground has been undermining the Church and undermining the Pope’s papal authority as well as his claims to both any kind of good leadership or even any kind of personal integrity.

I wrote about this issue – which has been a blatant plague on the Catholic Church for decades and possibly even centuries.  I said back in April of 2008:

I mentioned that the overwhelming majority of Catholic priests’ sexual abuse cases were homosexual in nature rather than cases of pedophilia.  Let me take a moment to document the homosexual subculture within the Catholic Church before I relate this to Bill Maher. I quote one paragraph from the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance (source: http://www.religioustolerance.org/hom_rcc1.htm).  I am including the footnotes in order to better document the following statements, and maintain the numbering of the footnotes as they are found in the article:

* Father Donald Cozzens wrote that several studies have concluded that about 50% of priests and seminarians are gay. 5 * David France of Newsweek, referring to St. John’s Seminary in Camarillo, CA, wrote: “Depending on whom you ask, gay and bisexual men make up anywhere from 30 percent to 70 percent of the student body at the college and graduate levels.” 3 * Rt. Rev. Helmut Hefner, rector of St. Johns Seminary “accepts that his gay enrollment may be as high as 50 percent.” 3 * Gay journalist Rex Wockner commented: “When I was in the Catholic seminary in my early 20s (St. Meinrad College, St. Meinrad, Ind., 1982-1983; University of St. Mary of the Lake, Mundelein, Ill., 1983-1984), at least 50 percent of the students were gay….At St. Mary of the Lake, the straight students felt like a minority and felt excluded from some aspects of campus life to such an extent that the administration staged a seminar at which we discussed the problem of the straight students feeling left out of things…” 6 * Author and sociologist James G. Wolfe estimated that 55.1% of seminarians were gay. 7

Cited in Father Donald Cozzens, “The Changing Face of the Priesthood: A reflection on the priest’s crisis of soul,” Liturgical Press, (2000), Page 99.

One of many supporting articles would be http://www.actupny.org/YELL/catholicpriests.html which begins, “Roman Catholic priests in the United States are dying from AIDS-related illnesses at a rate four times higher than the general population and the cause is often concealed on their death certificates, The Kansas City Star reported in a series of stories that started Sunday.”  The article goes on to describe the homosexual subculture within the Catholic Church.

I pointed out that Bill Maher was an abject moral hypocrite of the worst kind for on the one hand being a liberal and a champion of homosexuality while on the other hand damning an organization that is only guilty of doing what liberals like Bill Maher wanted in the first place and allowing homosexuals more power and influence.

But the major point why I recite that article is because it is a fact that over 80% of the “pedophile” cases of Catholic priests in fact involved postpubescant, teenagers, not little children.  The scandals destroying the Catholic Church so completely were blatantly homosexual in nature.

Now I state for the record that this scholarly priest named Fr. Dariusz Oko, Ph.D. said what I was saying a few years ago even more directly, if possible:

We should first expose the common lie presented by the media.   They keep talking about paedophilia among clergymen, while it is most often the case that the problem is ephebophilia, which is a perversion consisting in adult homosexual men being attracted not to children, but to pubescent and adolescent boys. It is a typical deviation related to homosexuality. Basic knowledge about that reality includes the fact that more than 80 percent of cases involving sexual abuse by clergymen reported in the U.S.A. were cases of ephebophilia, not paedophilia[4]! That fact has been carefully hidden and ignored, as it reveals particularly well the hypocrisy of the homolobby in both the world and the Church. It is all the more important that it be exposed.

In other countries, the situation is similar, it is therefore important to note that scandals involving sexual abuse which have shaken the global Church were mostly the work of homosexual clergymen. The Church has paid a very painful price for the tremendous offences which have been exposed, losing much of its credibility. This has caused dramatic difficulties both in spiritual and material terms in many dioceses, monasteries and seminars, with churches becoming empty in entire provinces of the Church.[5] It is estimated that the Church in the U.S.A. has had to pay more than one and a half billion dollars in damages so far[6]. None of that would have been possible without the existence of a significant underground, of which prosecutors usually reveal only a small part, the tip of the iceberg.   The scandals have also involved those holding the highest offices. In Poland, for instance, Archbishop Juliusz Paetz was dismissed from his office as Bishop of Poznan in 2002. In Ireland, so similar to Poland in spiritual and historical terms, so Catholic, several bishops have been removed from office in the recent years, including John Magee, Bishop of the Diocese of Cloyne, dismissed in 2010 on the grounds of covering up the offences of paedophilia and ephebophilia committed by 19 priests in his diocese. Before that, Fathers Paetz and Magee had worked together in Vatican for many years as part of the closest, most influential associates of the last three Popes.

The lengths to which militant homosexuals in cassocks can go can be observed in the behaviour of the particularly “liberal” and “open-minded” Archbishop Rembert Weakland, who ruled the diocese of Milwaukee, U.S.A., in the years 1977-2002. He openly admitted to being gay and to having had many partners in life. Throughout the term of his office – for 25 years – he continuously opposed the Pope and the Holy See on many issues, particularly criticizing and rejecting the teaching of the Magisterium on homosexuality. He supported and protected active gays in his diocese, helping them avoid liability for sexual offences they repeatedly committed. At leaving his office, he defrauded about a half million dollars to support his ex-partner.   One of the most influential people in the Church of his time, Marcial Maciel Degollado, founder of the Legion of Christ, turned out to be bisexual and to have perpetrated serious sexual offences against many members and underage students in his own congregation, including even his own son…   All four went entirely unpunished for a long time, despite many complaints and charges against them sent to Rome for years. Only direct contact with the Pope or publications in the media finally helped. Otherwise, everything was blocked at lower levels of local or by the Vatican hierarchy. It was similar in many other cases. For instance, several years passed before Bishops Patrick Ziemann of Santa Rosa in California (1999), Juan Carlos Maccarone of Santiago del Estero in Argentina (2005), Georg Müller of Trondheim and Oslo in Norway (2009), Raymond John Lahey of Antigonish in Canada (2009), Roger Vangheluw of Bruges, in Belgium (2010), John C. Favalora of Miami (2010) and Anthony J. O’Connell of Palm Beach in Florida (2010) were removed from office for active engagement in[, or cover-up of,] homosexual paedophilia or ephebophilia. Similar steps had to be taken with respect to many other bishops who concealed or covered up such offences. The same applied to many, sometimes very influential priests. Not only the number of serious sexual offences proves the power of that underground, but also – to an ever greater extent – the degree to which the process of selecting candidate bishops has been disturbed, who were allowed to make a great “career” in the Church despite their having perpetrated such offences, despite leading a double life. This is further confirmed by the efficiency with which such cases were covered up and concealed, the often insurmountable blockade of all attempts made within the Church to protect the wronged, to strive for elementary truth and justice. It has been so difficult at times to take appropriate, self-evident measures against homosexuals, so many strange difficulties have arisen, and even any success in that area is limited, partial and temporary. We witness a terrible phenomenon – it turns out the comfort of homosexual offenders is more important than the fate of children and youth, the fate of the whole Church. If that was done deliberately, that would be high treason, the Church would be guilty of betraying the youth!

This can also be seen in the fear and confusion of the clergy, particularly in certain dioceses and congregations, when faced with that topic – they escape into silence, unable to articulate even elementary statements on the teaching of the Church on the subject. What are they afraid of? Where does that fear in entire groups of mature, adult men come from? And where do the neuroses, heart diseases and other complaints come from in priests who nevertheless try to oppose such phenomena, especially to protect children and youth? They must be afraid of some influential lobby which wields its power and which they may fall into disfavour with[7].   In order for such evil to be concealed and tolerated, it is necessary that the right people hold key positions, and that not only a homolobby, but a homoclique or a homomafia is created. Indeed, that is what the present Polish Minister of Justice, Jaroslaw Gowin, called that group when referring to the scandal of homosexual abuses perpetrated by priests in the Diocese of Plock, the offences of molestation against young people and seminarians, and the covering up of such facts. He said that when he intervened in the Church in the case of Archbishop Paetz, he had the impression he was dealing with a mafia, brutally negating even the most obvious principles and facts.[8]

John MacArthur boldly decried the Democrat Party as literally standing for as their platform all the depraved homosexual wickedness of Romans Chapter one.

That message of moral clarity sadly never reached the Vatican.  Homosexuals and the radical perversion of homosexuality OWNS the Catholic Church today.

One of the questions is, will the next young, aggressive pope immediately confront this massive homosexual underground that now owns the Catholic Church, or will he be the tool through which they seize total power?  Will the rule of the next pope confront, or accommodate, the homosexual lobby.

And I do not have very high hopes that we will see him confront and fight and destroy this massive homosexual cabal.

I have written elsewhere that the Catholic Church’s view of homosexuality is deeply theologically flawed.  On their view, homosexuality is a temptation – and the temptation to engage in homosexual sex acts is not a “sin” but only the actual act itself.  That is wrong.  Homosexuality is perversion; it is brokenness.  And if a man is having serious thoughts about having sex with other men, there is something very wrong inside the soul of that man.

Which is why St. Paul in Romans describes acceptance of open homosexuality being that final, warped act of degenerate perversion that brings the wrath of God.  You can’t go any further down the moral sewer of human depravity.

Just read St. Paul in Romans 1:18-32 and follow his argument:

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

We now have a Vatican and a Catholic Church and a White House and an America that is openly tolerating and even celebrating the radical homosexual lifestyle.  Which is moral rock bottom and which is the characteristic sin of a society just before God gets truly mad.

I look around and I see a Western Civilization – once the civilization called “Christendom” – has radically departed from God in an embrace of secular humanist liberalism and Marxism.  I see America, once “One Nation Under God” now having openly defied Him.  I see the Catholic Church – far and away the largest Christian denomination on earth – having become so perverted and so sick.  I see America and Europe so deeply in so much unsustainable debt that a complete financial collapse is a given to any with eyes to see.  I know that all of the last days prophecies have either already been fulfilled or are already present and merely await the Antichrist to fulfill them.  And on top of all of that I have a sense in my gut that something is deeply wrong with the world and there is a reckoning coming.

I know that we are in the last days just before the Antichrist, who is called the beast, comes.  I know that America will welcome the beast and worship him.  And I know that American liberals, American Democrats and yes, American Catholics will rush to take his mark as a sign of that worship.

When the beast comes, he will be the ultimate big government messiah figure, which the left’s worship of Obama has already proven that the coming Antichrist will be the fulfillment of leftist hopes and dreams.

And they will march behind him as he leads the world right into a hell on earth.

I sadly believe that it is very likely that this coming pope will be yet another false messiah of darkness on a world that has been given over to the coming beast by decree of divine judgment.

Two Ways Sequestration Battle Proves That America Is A Headless Chicken Lurching Toward The Mark Of The Beast

February 26, 2013

Do you know what the absolutely most hilarious thing about the sequestration issue is? It’s that Democrats and media elites are saying, “The Republicans voted for these sequestration cuts…”  And, yes, they did vote for the bill that came from the Obama White House that had the sequestration cuts in it; as did Democrats.  But here’s the funny thing about it: if Republicans DON’T vote Obama’s way, they are “obstructionists.”  If they DO vote Obama’s way, well, they become completely to blame for the disaster that came from the mind of Obama, as far as the mainstream media and the Democrat Party are concerned.

The sequestration battle reveals two ways that the war is over, and America lost.

And it’s like that famous Pogo line: “We have met the enemy… and he is us.”

Two things going on right now blatantly show America is doomed.  There is simply no coming back from these things.

The first is the level of propaganda and lies coming from our mainstream media and from our White House.  There simply has never been a president who has ever been so in-your-face dishonest; and there simply has never been a media refusal to cover the truth like this before.

Barack Obama has now repeatedly said that sequestration – which he now says is a “meat cleaver” that would have “brutal consequences” that would destroy America – was “Congress’ idea” (with the implication that it was therefore the Republicans’ idea.  He said back on October 22:

“The sequester is not something that I’ve proposed,” Obama said. “It is something that Congress has proposed.”

But Barack Obama is a documented liar in claiming that.  Because WHO actually proposed sequestration again?

Let’s see what White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was forced to concede during an interview with Fox News anchor Brett Bair (note: I added the first remark by Jay Carney to the transcript after transcribing it from the video):

Jay Carney: Somehow, what they [Republicans] liked then, they don’t like now and they’re trying to say that it was the president’s idea.

Bret Baier: Fair to say, but it was the president’s idea… You concede that point, right?

Jay Carney: What I will concede is that we were looking and the Republicans were looking for a trigger around which to build the mechanism to get us out of default possibility and the sequester was one of the ideas yes put forward, yes, by the president’s team.

Who’s to blame for sequestration?

“At 2:30 p.m. Lew and Nabors went to the Senate to meet with Reid and his chief of staff, David Krone. ‘We have an idea for the trigger,’ Lew said. ‘What’s the idea?’ Reid asked skeptically. ‘Sequestration.’ Reid bent down and put his head between his knees, almost as if he were going to throw up or was having a heart attack. He sat back up and looked at the ceiling. ‘A couple of weeks ago,’ he said, ‘my staff said to me that there is one more possible’ enforcement mechanism: sequestration. He said he told them, ‘Get the hell out of here. That’s insane. The White House surely will come up with a plan that will save the day. And you come to me with sequestration?’ Well, it could work, Lew and Nabors explained. What would the impact be? They would design it so that half the threatened cuts would be from the Defense Department. ‘I like that,’ Reid said. ‘That’s good. It doesn’t touch Medicaid or Medicare, does it?’ It actually does touch Medicare, they replied. ‘How does it touch Medicare?’ It depends, they said. There’s versions with 2 percent cuts, and there’s versions with 4 percent cuts.” (Bob Woodward, The Price Of Politics, 2012, pp. 326)

It is a documented historical fact that it was BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S White House that proposed sequestration, NOT Congress and most certainly NOT Republicans.

So, yeah, it was the president’s idea.  It was Obama’s plan that Obama put forward.  If the Republicans agreed to it in order to get something done on the last debt ceiling fight.  And after all  the time you’ve spent labelling Republicans as “obstructionists” for not agreeing with you, NOW you demonize them as evil after they DO agree with you???

Barack Obama is a documented, proven liar.  Even the überliberal Washington Post acknowledges that Barack Obama is a liar.  But the rest of the media is largely disinterested, uningaged, uninvolved in this story – aside from presenting Obama’s deceitful spin on reality as “the news.”

We also have Barack Obama’s very own words to examine regarding the automatic spending cuts of the sequestration his White House proposed:

I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts,” said Obama from the White House’s briefing room, adding “the only way to get rid of those cuts is to get Congress to come together and work on a deal.”

We literally have him saying it on video:

Obama has said the same thing again and again:

“Already some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. My message to them is simple: No,” Mr. Obama said from the White House briefing room Monday evening. “I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending.”

Barack Obama is a documented liar and slanderer and demagogue and fearmongering demonizer for all the world to see.

When he now says:

“Would they rather put hundreds of thousands of jobs and our entire economy at risk just to protect a few special interest tax loopholes that benefit only the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations?” Obama asked of the GOP during a White House event.

What he is actually saying is that it was actually HIS idea to “put hundreds of thousands of jobs and our entire economy at risk just to protect a few special interest tax loopholes that benefit only the wealthiest Americans and biggest corporations.”   You DO know that GE – which paid zero taxes last year – is a liberal and pro-Obama corporation, don’t you?  You DO know that Facebook – another liberal pro-Obama corporation is not only not paying federal income taxes but is actually getting a huge tax refund of nearly half a billion dollars in tax money???

When Obama now says:

At one of his countless anti-sequester events, Obama warned that the budget cuts will “gut critical investments,” “weaken America’s economic recovery” and “weaken our military readiness.” He said tens of thousands of parents will scramble to find child care, and hundreds of thousands will “lose access to primary care and preventive care.”

Whenever you hear Obama explain how the sequestration cuts are absolutely evil and would basically kill everybody in his current slandering fearmongering, realize that Obama is the source of that evil and is responsible for all the evil things he says will happen.

And do you REALLY want to talk about the cronyism of the Obama administration????  Obama is literally SELLING access to his White House to the highest bidder.  Obama’s mindset is to be the most shameless peddler of chutzpah the world has ever known, to demonize and slander his opponents while actually doing far WORSE than the opponents whom he is routinely demonizing.   While the media dishonestly “reports” whatever the hell their Führer wants them to.  And I say “Führer” because you’ve got to go back to Joseph Goebbels’ Ministry of Propaganda to see this kind of shameless media dishonesty.

What Barack Hussein Obama is actually saying is that to whatever extent the sequestration cuts are evil, HE is evil.  To whatever extent that sequestration will hurt the economy, HE is the one who hurt the economy.  And to whatever extent sequestration cuts will hurt the American people, HE is the one who hurt the American people.  Obama is literally on the record having said that he would not allow ANYTHING to undo the spending cuts that he today dishonestly says is demonically evil.

But the world doesn’t CARE that Barack Obama is a slandering liar and a pathologically dishonest and dishonorable human being.  And that’s largely because the mainstream media are a bunch of pathologically dishonest and dishonorable human beings who now rely almost exclusively on propaganda rather than “news” or “journalism.”

It’s an inconvenient truth that the sequestration cuts that Barack Obama is now fearmongering and demonizing came from Obama.  It is an inconvenient truth that Barack Hussein Obama actually threatened to VETO ANY EFFORT TO UNDO THE SEQUESTRATION CUTS THAT HE NOW SAYS ARE SO DAMN EVIL and will be so damned harmful to the American people.  So the media doesn’t report the inconvenient truth.  And instead reports Obama’s slandering lies and fearmongering in PLACE of the truth.

When a nation is as blinded by lies and as willing to participate in lies and deceit as the American people now are, it is time for that nation and that people to go the way of the Dodo bird to extinction.  But it’s more than just extinction, because we face divine judgment: any nation that is so deluded by lies that it would vote for a liar without shame, without honor and without decency in 2008 and then vote to re-elect that shameless liar four years later deserves the Antichrist, deserves to worship him, deserves to take his mark and deserves to burn in hell for all eternity.

And that is coming because of what we have done.  That end is coming because when we needed to be confronted by the truth, the American people were the sort of people who preferred lies and slander and demagoguery and fearmongering.

The truth no longer matters in America.  And God DAMN America for that, to quote Obama’s racist reverend Jeremiah Wright.

What I point out above isn’t the only Obama lies regarding sequestration.  Like I said, this man is a liar without shame or honor or decency.  And literally everything that drools out of his mouth is a lie.  Bob Woodward also documented that Barack Obama, in demanding tax hikes (“revenue”), is not only dishonestly moving the goal post but in fact shamelessly reneging on a deal he made:

In fact, the final deal reached between Vice President Biden and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in 2011 included an agreement that there would be no tax increases in the sequester in exchange for what the president was insisting on: an agreement that the nation’s debt ceiling would be increased for 18 months, so Obama would not have to go through another such negotiation in 2012, when he was running for reelection.

So when the president asks that a substitute for the sequester include not just spending cuts but also new revenue, he is moving the goal posts. His call for a balanced approach is reasonable, and he makes a strong case that those in the top income brackets could and should pay more. But that was not the deal he made.

Again, that is the reporting of Bob Woodward, one of the most famous journalist’ alive whose reporting brought down Nixon, stated from his access to the White House during the very time the sequestration deal was going through.

But again, the mainstream media and the wicked American people will not allow Barack Obama to be held responsible for his shameless lies or his constant deceit.  So the fact that Obama’s constant demand for “common-sense” “balanced approach,” he is in fact saying he should be rewarded for making promises, agreeing to deals, and then dishonestly reneging on those promises and deals.

Anyone who negotiates with such a dishonest man as Obama is is a fool who deserves his own destruction.  Which is why the Republican Party is in such terrible shape as they’ve tried to compromise again and again with a shameless, craven, dishonest liar.

They have gone down this path again and again and again.  Obama makes a deal only to break his own deal.  And then demonize and slander the Republicans whose sin was trying to deal with a devil:

The book, “The Price of Politics,” on sale Sept. 11, 2012, shows how close the president and the House speaker were to defying Washington odds and establishing a spending framework that included both new revenues and major changes to long-sacred entitlement programs.

But at a critical juncture, with an agreement tantalizingly close, Obama pressed Boehner for additional taxes as part of a final deal — a miscalculation, in retrospect, given how far the House speaker felt he’d already gone.

Who killed that infamous Grand Bargain deal in which Boehner had agreed to concede higher taxes in exhange for spending cuts?  Obama killed it by having a deal and then demanding even more concessions after he had already agreed on a deal.  And dishonest Democrats, which pretty much is all of them, have perverted the truth ever since by falsely claiming Boehner walked away from a deal.  All Boehner walked away from was the destroyed engine of a deal after Obama dishonestly threw a monkey wrench into it after they’d already agreed to a deal.

When Barack Hussein Obama pissed on the deal and killed it, he and his vast army of lying cockroaches were ready to point the finger at the victim of Obama’s dishonest dealing.

Democrats are every bit as happy to go off the fiscal cliff of sequestration as the most right wing Republican.  And Obama has been doing a whole lot of moving the goalposts while he dishonestly goes back on agreements he made.  But the dishonest media refuses to report the truth.  Because the truth is the first thing to go before God truly begins to judge a nation for its wickedness.

That’s one.  The dishonesty of the American people in their leader, in their dishonest, false messiah are alone enough to constitute God Damn America until this nation fades away from its status as a world power in humiliation and shame.

But the sequestration debate reveals a far more dangerous cancer at the dishonest, wicked heart of Barack Hussein Obama and the American people he leads to their damnation.

The other fact is the fact that there will NEVER be anything remotely CLOSE to true spending cuts as long as there is one Democrat who has not been hunted down with dogs and burned alive.

Do you know what the sequestration fight is really over?  Of course you don’t, if you get your “news” from the mainstream media!  It is over a 2.4% reduction in the rate of projected spending:

How much is to be “cut”? $85 billion on a budget of $3.6 trillion. That’s 2.4%. As of August household income was down 8.2% under Obama and the country had to make do. Now Obama tries to tell us that government can’t do with 2.4% less? Seriously?

He has been lying about the sequester since the debates.

And:

Federal spending will explode from $3.6 trillion to $6 trillion over the next 10 years, but the much-maligned sequester will cut only 2.4 percent of this spending.

Sequestration represents a relatively small cut in projected spending. So why are so many in Washington wringing their hands over a two-and-a-half percent reduction?

Do you know that the coming budget will spend more than last years budget EVEN WITH the sequestration “cuts”???  Because the fact of the matter is that we will actually be spending $110 billion MORE in this budget even when the sequestration “cuts” are factored in.

I want you to understand: Democrats are literally becoming hysterical and rabid over the fear of not a 2% cut that ANY bureaucracy ought to be able to easily make – but a 2.4% cut in the rate of growth of that spending.  This is another way of simply pointing out the fact that we can’t make ANY cuts of ANY kind at all.

The sequestration “cuts” are mindless, stupid and evil – which is exactly what I for one would expect from anything coming out of Obama’s White House as these sequestration cuts did – but Republicans are beginning to express a willingness to “go off the cliff” with sequestration simply because it is now glaringly obvious to anyone possessing a faculty for comprehending reality that Barack Obama will NEVER allow any other spending cuts of any kind during the next four years.  And if Republicans want ANY cuts to the budget, the deficit, or the debt at ALL, this is their only chance to get them.

That’s the fact.

And the fact is that Democrats – in spite of their frequent lip service to reducing spending, reducing the deficit, reducing the debt – are shameless liars who say one thing and keep doing another.  They will NEVER allow ANY spending cuts.  Period.

Obama slandered George Bush for his $4 trillion debt over eight years.  He has now presided over $6 trillion more in debt in only four years.  Which is to say that the nation’s crushing, bankrupting, extinction debt is tripling under Obama beyond what Obama demonized Bush over.

Again, Barack Hussein Obama is a pathologically dishonest man.  And this hellbound world longing for the Antichrist loves him for it.

What Obama did was load up the 2008 federal deficit with TRILLIONS of dollars in his own spending, then slanderously and dishonestly hold Bush responsible for Obama’s own wicked spending.  As if it was Bush who imposed the Obama stimulus, and Bush who imposed the Obama Omnibus bill, etc.  The deficit that Bush handed Obama for 2008 was $400 billion.  And what Obama did was deceitfully assert that HE ended the war in Iraq – which Bush actually ended and signed the final status of forces agreement for – and that somehow without Obama the Iraq War would have gone on forever and so Obama should somehow be credited with eternal savings for ending a war that Bush actually won and ended.

And that is why this nation is utterly doomed.  Either money is nothing – in which case nobody needs any more of it and Democrats are idiots for trying to redistribute the wealth like the Marxists they truly are – or money matters and our $228 trillion fiscal gap will bury us and smother this nation to death.  It’s one or the other.

Our true fiscal gap was documented by the International Monetary Fund at $222 trillion as of August of last year.  It is growing by nearly a trillion dollars every month.  Which means it is now well over $228 trillion in unfunded liabilities that will bankrupt this nation.

And Obama is literally coming unglued at saving $84 billion in cuts not in our spending but only in our rate of growth – which is a drop of piss in a giant ocean of bloody-red debt???

Democrats won’t allow America to cut its spending in any way, shape or form.  And America is going to die because of that.

The Democrat Party stands for the extinction of America.  It is crushing America with lies and crushing America with debt.  And America cannot survive with either scourge, let alone both.

So it should be no surprise that the same Obama administration that has gone so completely deranged predicting national disaster and even holocaust if the sequestration that Obama proposed, that Obama signed into law and that Obama threatened to use his veto to protect was put into effect is also the administration that is about to intentionally try to make those cuts as painful to as many Americans as they possibly can.

Want an example?  Obama cabinent appointees are already releasing a wave of CRIMINAL illegal immigrants as a way to inflict harm with the sequestration cuts in order to say the Republicans did what in fact OBAMA did.  I say “criminal” not just because it is a damn CRIME to enter the United States without going through the legal immigration process, but because the “immigrants” being released are “immigrants” who have already been convicted of crimes in Los Estados Unidos.

So basically, what Obama is saying is that you either agree with my new deal after I broke my word with you on our last deal, or else I’ll threaten you with huge numbers of criminal illegal immigrants.  And according to Obama, that’s a “balanced compromise” rather than terrorist extortionism.

Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor put it this way:

“President Obama has said that unless he gets a second tax hike in eight  weeks, he will be forced to let criminals loose on the streets, the meat at your  grocery store won’t be inspected and emergency responders will be unable to do  their jobs,” Cantor said in his statement.

“These are false choices. We are faced with the negative effects of the  sequester because Democrats have not been able to take even the smallest step  towards controlling spending.”

False choices have been all we’ve had for Obama’s entire presidency.

Could Obama lay off his scheduling secretary so he’d have a harder time going on a golfing vacation with Tiger Woods just before coming back to say that what clearly wasn’t a big deal before he went on vacation is suddenly about to kill America if he doesn’t get his way?  Yes, but it’s so much more fun for Obama to fire firefighters and police officers instead.  Because that’s just the kind of wicked man he is.

When the beast comes, there is not a doubt in my mind that he will honor Barack Hussein Obama as the man who made his arrival possible.

And the American people will burn in hell for all eternity as a result of both of these wicked men.

What I See Coming As ObamaCare Unfolds: The Holocaust Of The Elderly As Democrats Abandon Elderly And ‘Pivot’ To Young Voters

February 21, 2013

I want to point out something that I believe I’m going to see increasingly confirmed.

Just a couple of days ago I offered this prediction near the end of an article I titled, “Even ObamaCare Backers Now Finally Admit To Seeing Shocking Premium Hikes Coming Due To The Evil Mark-Of-The-Beast ObamaCare Law“:

You want to know what else I’m predicting, since I’ve been dead solid perfect in all my forecasts about how a truly evil and demonic Democrat Party would destroy our health care system and murder millions of helpless Americans?  Try this one on for size: as we all know, elderly people tend to vote Republican, while younger people tend to vote Democrat.  And here we have these young Democrats left holding the bill for an incredibly costly ObamaCare fascist takeover.

And the costs are going to go up because of all that expensive treatment of the elderly – who tend to vote Republican.

So you just watch while the most wicked political party since the Nazis – and if there were an “National Socialist American Workers Party” the way we had a “National Socialist German Workers Party” (Nazi Party) you can bet your farm that it would be the same socialist cockroaches filling its ranks – begins to treat old people like Jews and tell them they need to die so that the young generation can live.

The Democrat Party is ultimately going to “pivot” to the young and turn on the elderly.  And treat them like Hitler treated the Jews and like Obama has treated the rich.

Mind you, they won’t admit they’re going to do that now; just like they wouldn’t admit that ObamaCare would drive up the cost of healthcare when they were lying to you to sell their abomination.

ObamaCare started out as a 2,000 page monstrosity.  It has now grown like a cancer to well over THIRTY THOUSAND PAGES as the regulations are being furiously written and added in to this demonic legislation.

When we voted for Obama, we literally voted for the coming beast whose useful idiot Obama is.

It’s interesting what the Democrats who imposed ObamaCare on us are starting to ADMIT:

They’re admitting they slandered Sarah Palin and that she was right and they were lying when she predicted ObamaCare would amount to “death panels.”

They’re admitting that ObamaCare costs MASSIVELY more than they dishonestly said it would.  We’re finding out that the cheapest ObamaCare plan for parents with three children will be a crushing $20,000 a year.

They’re admitting that 30% of doctors are now abandoning medicine as a direct result of ObamaCare after demonizing us for predicting that reality.

And of course the very Democrats who helped pass ObamaCare are now turning on it and saying it is an abomination – just like we said it would be.

Anyway, I also was out there predicting that ObamaCare would end up being a Holocaust for the elderly, such as here and here.

I predicted a year ago:

In a nutshell, as you get older, you start having more health problems requiring more trips to the doctor and more medical care.  But ObamaCare understands that you’re probably retired and you’re a useless eater and it’s time for you to shove off and die with dignity.  So fascist Democrats want to cut off spending on the elderly and apply it to younger proletariats who are working for the sake of Dear Leader and are therefore eligible to continue to live.

Clinton economist and Obama advisor Robert Reich had already said this on the record about the future of ObamaCare:

“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.”

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.”

I documented how Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel – the brains behind ObamaCare as Obama’s health-policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget and a member of Obama’s Federal Council on Comparative Effectiveness Research – described how the system would systematically deny resources to the elderly in order to focus on younger people:

“When implemented, the Complete Lives system produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most substantial chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuatedThe Complete Lives system justifies preference to younger people because of priority to the worst-off rather than instrumental value.”

“Attenuated” means, “to make thin; to weaken or reduce in force, intensity, effect, quantity, or value.”  Attenuated care would be reduced or lessened care.  Dare I say it, in this context it clearly means, “rationed care.”

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel included a chart with his work (available here), which shows how he wants to allocate medical resources under a government plan:

When you’re very young, or when you start reaching your 50s and 60s, you start receiving less and less priority.

So, I understood what the Democrats would in fact do – because ObamaCare was an abomination for the elderly from the very start.  But I didn’t understand the political mechanism.  I didn’t understand how the VERY SAME PEOPLE who gave the elderly all these unsustainable healthcare benefits (via Medicare and Medicaid) would be able to viciously and barbarically turn on those people who voted for them and ultimately gut the health care benefits that they depend on to live.

I didn’t understand politically how Democrats could spend seventy years erecting unsustainable benefits for the elderly, and then turn on the very elderly they had supposedly erected all these benefits for and actually continue to get re-elected.

I do now: Democrats have a new coalition to win.  They have the young.  And since the elderly have started increasingly voting Republican as they start to see what’s coming, they can throw the old under the bus to be crushed by the wheels.

The young who now support Democrats are demanding affordable healthcare.

And the only way for that to happen is for the elderly to be cut off.  Because it is simply a fact that people use up most of the healthcare resources they will ever need when they get old.  And now that Democrats have brought all of these costs into “government,” they have to reduce the cost burden in order to stave off obvious bankruptcy and national implosion.

So what’s going to happen is Democrats are going to increasingly begin to argue that inexpensive healthcare is a moral imperative.  But that the elderly are useless eaters who have already produced all the benefit for society that they ever would in their time and that it is time for them to die with dignity so the next generation can have access to have the same access to healthcare that the elderly once enjoyed (before the Democrats who gave them all these benefits decided it was in their cynical political benefit to take those benefits away).

And as I have documented, we’re already seeing that mindset come out of ObamaCare.  It’s what ObamaCare always was for those with ears to hear.

How do Democrats pay for the massive and unsustainable costs of ObamaCare for the young when they have already created massive and unsustainable costs for caring for the old with Medicare and Medicaid?  Answer: they turn on the cost of the previous programs that they created when demagoguing those previous programs was the way to lie and pander to their last voter constituency.  They plunder the care for the old that they previously promised to pay for the care for the young that they are promising now.

So now – as Democrats continue to solidify their young electorate – you will start to see Democrats increasingly disparage “the greatest generation” as being people who are frankly unworthy of all the healthcare resources they are consuming.

So when I heard career liberal and Democrat strategist Bob Beckell say the following on Bill O’Reilly’s program last night, I took notice (at the 00:09:55 mark of the program)

00:09:55 Last night about this great america in the 50s, we were dragged into fighting the Nazis.  Somehow you made this myth about this last generation.   You and Tom Brokaw, the greatest generation.  The fact is —

00:10:07 Bill [O’Reilly]: You’re ranting now.

And, yes, of course he was ranting.  But he was plainly stating his belief that old people aren’t that great and they shouldn’t get any credit for rising up and defeating the Nazis.

As long as the elderly are “the greatest generation” Democrats can’t turn on them.  But dehumanize them, say they didn’t do anything great, that they aren’t any more deserving than anybody else, and that they are now a burden and that they should die with dignity – that’s the ticket.

And that’s what you will increasingly see as Democrats “pivot” to the young and abandon the elderly.

Watch for a lot more of that to happen.

Years ago, the great preacher D. James Kennedy prophetically warned:

“Watch out, Grandma and Grandpa!  Because the generation who survived abortion will one day come after you!”

We have now aborted more than 56 million innocent babies in America.  Democrats are responsible for every single one of those lives – and one day they will burn in hell for a trillion years to the trillionth power of years for every single nano-second of every single one of those lives that thse babies would have lived if they hadn’t been snuffed out in the womb.

And this same, depraved, barbaric wickedness that characterized the Democrat Party’s hatred for babies will be applied to their hatred for the elderly very, very soon.

And now we’re about to see the most wicked generation of Democrats in history cynically abandon their promises to one group who depended on their promises in order to appeal to a different group who haven’t experienced the wickedness of Democrats so they can stay in power.

This is what the Bible predicted about the final generation before the beast came:

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.  People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God–having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. — 2 Timothy 3:1-5

This wicked generation of youth who vote Democrat after surviving Democrats’ attempts to murder them in their wombs will vote to turn on their own parents in a way completely unprecedented in all of human history.  And the Democrats will enable them to do it unlike any previous generation in history.

It will take a generation this wicked to believe in the Democrat Party’s lies even as the very same Democrats prove once and for all what demonic liars they were all along.

Paul warns godly people to “have nothing to do with them.”  But the Democrat Party that is the party of genuine evil in America not only want everything to do with them, but to exploit them to erect the new abominations of their party platform to advance the political ideology of Romans chapter one.

What Is The Purpose Of The Millennium? Why Will Christ Reign On Earth For One Thousand Years?

February 19, 2013

What is the “Millennium” that is repeatedly referred to (six times in Revelation chapter 20) in the Book of Revelation?

Well, the Latin word “Millennium” itself provides much of the answer: “mille” means “one thousand” and “annum” means “years.”  One thousand years.  Sadly, what is quite clear in Scripture is largely denied by the majority of the last days Church.  “One thousand years” doesn’t mean “one thousand years”; it becomes a metaphor for something else; it’s all just smoke-and-mirrors symbolism.  And Revelation becomes an incomprehensible book that is better left unread because Amillennialists have muddied and distorted it until it is nigh impossible to explain.

For the record, “Amillennialism” means “no thousand years” even though Revelation chapter 20 specifically refers to “a thousand years” six different times.  How did such a bizarre doctrine form?

During the time of the great Christian scholar Augustine in the fifth century AD, there was no Israel, there had been no Israel for centuries and there was no apparent hope of there ever being a national Israel.  And so many passages in Revelation that made crystal clear sense in light of a national Israel made no sense at all without a national Israel; and we needed symbolism to understand what apparently could not be understood literally.  If there were no Israel, as I shall explain in this article, there would clearly be no reason whatsoever to have a Millennium.  And since there was no Israel when this theology was written, Israel was literally written out and allegory and metaphor was literally written in in Israel’s place.  And since “Israel” was merely a word that had been redefined to mean something else, why not do the same thing with the words “thousand years”???

Tragically, many of these amillennialist denominations have largely abandoned the true faith in favor of secular humanism and political correctness.  And that happened largely because nothing literally meant anything on their interpretations any more – and even the Resurrection of Christ became another allegory or metaphor rather than a literal event in history.

I argue that this is a lack of faith on man’s part rather than a lack of ability to perform a miracle on God’s part.  Ezekiel chapter 37 prophecies a national rebirth of Israel from “dead bones.”  And that is precisely what happened as a people who were nearly destroyed in the Holocaust – with the survivors being transformed into living skeletons due to starvation and disease – in 1948 as Israel miraculously became a nation after two thousand years of exile.  During those two thousand years, Jews who clung to the promises of God would say every year in conclusion of the Seder, “Next year in Jerusalem!”  And Bible-believing Christians always believed that with them.

Amillennialists want to depict premillennialism (the belief in a literal 1,000 year rule of Christ on earth) and dispensationalism (the belief that God has been dispensing or administering His revelation according to His own will and according to various stages of human history) as something that was developed in the mind of one man named Charles Nelson Darby in the late 19th century.  But that simply isn’t true.  In fact, the doctrines that fly in the face of the amillennialist system have been around for centuries and in fact predate amillennialism.  You can go back to Romans chapter 11 to see that Israel – yes, national Israel – would be saved.  Romans 11:26 very specifically says “all Israel will be saved.”  And there is no rational definition of “all Israel” that does not include the nation of Israel.  And for “all Israel” – very much including the nation of Israel – to be saved, it would have to actually somehow EXIST.  Which happened on May 14, 1948.  Exactly as those who took the Bible literally held to a literal nation of Israel and a literal Millennium said would happen for centuries prior to 1948 and continued to say right up to that historic day on May 14.

On May 14, 1948, those who clung to a literal Millennium and a literal Israel were proven right.  And those who denied the Millennium and denied national Israel were proven wrong.

Why is the existence of Israel crucial to the belief in a one thousand-year Millennium during which Jesus Christ will physically rule and reign over the earth from His Davidic throne in Jerusalem?  For one reason: the Millennium is the time when Messiah will fulfill EVERY SINGLE promise He made to His people Israel.

In the Old Testament, God’s promises to His people for faithful obedience were very literal and very material.  He promised them the land of Canaan as an everlasting possession (see Gen 12:1-7;  22:17 cf Numbers 26:52-56); He promised them material abundance and long physical lives on earth (Isaiah 65:17-23).  But most of all they were promised that their Messiah would rule and reign over the nations among them on the throne of David in Jerusalem (2 Samuel 7:12-16; Micah 4:1-5; Zechariah 6:13).  The very nature of nature itself will be profoundly altered during this period, such that the wolf will lay down with the lamb (Isaiah 11:6; 65:25).

Amillennialists want to allegorize such verses and claim that they refer to heaven.  But when Isaiah 65:20 teaches that a person who dies before the age of a hundred will be presumed to have been cursed for his sins, how can that possibly refer to “heaven”?  This is clearly a reference to a very clearly literal Millennium period during which Jesus Christ shall physically rule from Jerusalem just as the Scriptures consistently claim.

During the Tribulation all Israel – national Israel – will be saved.  God has a purpose for the Tribulation to bring grace to His people and He will bring grace to His genetic people Israel just as He promised.  They will see their Messiah and mourn and weep as they would for a lost son and they shall repent as a people and be saved (Zechariah 12:10).  And during the Millennium Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords, shall rule over the nations for one thousand years from the city of Jerusalem and from the throne of David – just as God promised His people Israel.

And every single promise God made to His people Israel He shall fulfill.  Because the God who is faithful to His Church will be faithful to the people through whom God gave birth to the Church.

I find it interesting that King David ruled Israel very nearly exactly one thousand years prior to the coming of Jesus of Nazareth to die for the sins of the world as in His First Advent as Messiah.  The nation of Israel almost immediately stumbled into sin.  Even King David himself had to be judged for gross sin (2 Samuel 12; 2 Samuel 24).  During the Millennium, Jesus Christ will show Israel how He would have blessed them if they had obeyed His Word.  Jesus will heal Israel for a thousand years of disobedience by giving them a thousand years of blessing.  That, I believe, is the ultimate purpose of the Millennium.

But just as with the Tribulation, God has a secondary purpose for the world.

At the very beginning of the Millennium, God sends an archangel to bind Satan and throw him into the abyss for the duration of the Millennium (Rev 20:1-3) so that he cannot deceive the nations to pursue evil.  At the end of the Millennium, Satan is released (Rev 20:7).

So why is Satan bound for a thousand years only to be released in Rev. 20?  Just as God gives sinful man his chance to “have it his own way” during the Tribulation in order to reveal in history that man simply cannot make it without Jesus Christ, so also does God give the human race in the Millennial Kingdom this “opportunity” to turn their backs on Jesus.  By releasing Satan, God demonstrates in human history that as long as man has a choice – even with Christ physically ruling over him in Jerusalem – sinful man will always choose evil.  The wicked always have an excuse for their wickedness; they will claim now that God was not visible enough for them.  But even when God is so visible He is literally reigning over them in Jerusalem for every human eye to see, they will still rebel against God the moment they have a chance to hear the devil’s lies.  Sin is not the unfortunate result of poverty or our environment; it is the result of our fallen nature apart from Christ.  And so even the Millennium Kingdom – as idyllic as it is compared with the world Christ just saved at the end of the Tribulation – is not ultimately adequate.  We need the ultimate state of heaven where God will confirm us in our righteousness and where no Satan can ever tread.  That’s why.

If you have the kind of faith by which God will save your soul from hell, you do not need to see God with your physical eyes.  If you do not have such faith, you will not believe even if God is right in front of you.  It is ultimately not the lies of the devil which snare us, but our own propensity toward wickedness that makes us beings who want to be deceived with lies because we do not love the truth as embodied in Jesus Christ.

In the end, God stands as always true to His Word, while Satan will ultimately burn forever in hell as the great deceiver who always encouraged fallen man to live down to his lowest common denominator of sin.

What Is The Purpose Of The Tribulation? Why Does God Allow The World To Go Through Hell On Earth?

February 19, 2013

Have you ever read the Book of Revelation?  The four horsemen of the Apocalypse, trumpet judgments bowl judgments and seal judgments galore.  The sun like sackcloth and the full moon like blood.  Stars falling from the sky and poisoning the water.  Armies of hundreds of millions of demonic men facing off across a nuclear battlefield at Armageddon.  The Great and terrible day of the LORD.  Treading whole armies in a bloody winepress of wrath.  Really bad stuff.

Why does God let all that happen???

But, you see, God DOES say it will all happen, that and a lot more.  He said it would happen through the prophet Daniel, through Jesus Himself and through His apostle, St. John.

But why does God’s Word say that the human race will come to such a violent, fire-back-with-every-nuke-we’ve-got end?

Let me give you the two primary reasons.

First is the fact that God will ultimately allow secular humanism to have their experiment with big government socialism.  He will take the Church – consisting of every believing Christian on earth – out of the picture and allow sinful man to have his way in the form of the ultimate dictator whom the world will literally worship.  At this point, you’ve got your liberals who believe in government-created Utopia saying that they could turn the world around and create a paradise if it weren’t for those Bible-banging fundamentalist right wingers who disapprove of abortion and homosexuality and socialism and all the things they love so much.  Bible-believing Christians are “obstructionists” who are blocking human progress toward a better world.

What I’m telling you is that God will give them their chance.  And instead of their big government one-world socialist Utopia, what they’re going to produce is hell on earth in only seven years’ time.

Right now they believe they could have a “Star Trek” version of history reaching out into the stars; instead, when Jesus comes and destroys them in their hate and fury, He will literally come to save planet earth from a crazed human race bent on mutually assured destruction as long as they can kill their enemies.

The Tribulation is a foretaste of hell for an unbelieving world that will accuse God of not letting them know what is coming due to their wickedness and their unrepentance.

In the end, before the Great White Throne Judgment in which all the unbelievers on earth will finally reap the hell in eternity they sowed in their time on earth, no one will be able to say that his or her way worked better than God’s way.  The laboratory of the world itself will have proven them wrong.

The second reason God allows the Tribulation is even more fundamental.  Why will the Christ-rejecting world go through Tribulation?  Because that’s what it will take to finally bring the Jews – the apple of God’s eye (Zech 2:8) – into the true Messiah Jesus’ sheepfold (John 10:1-18).  Does Jesus have other sheep (John 10:16)?  Yes, He has His Church.  But consider the lost sheep of Luke 15:3-7; when one sheep was lost, the good Shepherd leaves the other ninety-nine to find that sheep and rejoices when He returns it to its fold.  So also is Messiah with His people Israel.  They are few compared to the Gentile Church; but Messiah loves them passionately and will not abandon His nation Israel to hell.

We find that in the Tribulation the Satan-possessed Antichrist has a special hatred for Israel and a special desire to persecute them (Rev 12).  God raises up His 144,000 Jews from each of the Twelve Tribes who are like 144,000 Billy Grahams to Israel.  They begin to evangelize Jews after the Rapture of the Church (Rev 7:3-8); God is NEVER left without a witness.  And ultimately God keeps His people the Jews safe at a place called Petra (see Rev 7:13-16).

Ultimately, when Messiah appears as King of kings and as Lord of lords, He goes to Petra and releases the Jews from their place of refuge.  And just short of too late Israel will look upon Him whom they rejected and mourn for Him as for a lost Son (Zechariah 12:10).  And thus all Israel shall be saved (Romans 11:25-32).

Just as it took the Holocaust to bring about the restoration of national Israel, so it will ultimately take the Tribulation to bring Israel to national repentance and worship of her Messiah.  Always remember that God is the Hound of Heaven, and just as He will do whatever it takes to bring you to salvation and Heaven, so also will He be just as faithful to His people the Jews.

As a Christian, when I look at a Jew, I look upon a lost brother who is dearly loved by my Father.  The miraculous rebirth of national Israel – born from dead bones (see Ezekiel 37) – was part of God’s plan which God will bring to fruition at the end of the Tribulation.

Even ObamaCare Backers Now Finally Admit To Seeing Shocking Premium Hikes Coming Due To The Evil Mark-Of-The-Beast ObamaCare Law

February 18, 2013

Liberals are pathologically stupid and depraved people.  They didn’t have to be; they merely radically chose evil and choosing evil means being determined NOT to see or understand the truth.

Liberals are the people for whom St. Paul wrote “professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” in Romans chapter one.  In fact, the great pastor and preacher John MacArthur recently pointed out that “the Democratic Party has “adopted the sins of Romans 1 as their  platform.”

So it didn’t matter how many times we warned liberals.  They are too recklessly idiotic to comprehend.

You simply cannot argue with dishonest people.  They wave lies in front of you, they bait and switch, they change the subject with unrelated demagoguery, etc., etc.

So now you wicked people who foolishly chose the most wicked president in this nation’s history are going to get to “benefit” from his dishonest Stalinist character:

States worry about rate shock during shift to new health law
Even states that back Obama’s healthcare law worry about a jump in some insurance premiums as it takes effect.
By Noam N. Levey, Washington Bureau
February 18, 2013, 3:00 a.m.

WASHINGTON — Less than a year before Americans will be required to have insurance under President Obama‘s healthcare law, many of its backers are growing increasingly anxious that premiums could jump, driven up by the legislation itself.

Higher premiums could undermine a core promise of the Affordable Care Act: to make basic health protections available to all Americans for the first time. Major rate increases also threaten to cause a backlash just as the law is supposed to deliver many key benefits Obama promised when he signed it in 2010.

“The single biggest issue we face now is affordability,” said Jill Zorn, senior program officer at the Universal Health Care Foundation of Connecticut, a consumer advocacy group that championed the new law.

Administration officials have consistently downplayed the specter of rate increases and other disruptions as millions of Americans move into overhauled insurance markets in 2014. They cite provisions in the law that they say will hold down premiums, including new competitive markets they believe will make insurers offer competitive rates.

Exactly how high the premiums may go won’t be known until later this year. But already, officials in states that support the law have sounded warnings that some people — mostly those who are young and do not receive coverage through their work — may see considerably higher prices than expected.

That is because of new requirements in the law aimed at making insurance more comprehensive and more affordable for older, sicker consumers.

Insurance regulators in California, which has enthusiastically embraced the law, cautioned the Obama administration in a recent letter about “rate and market disruption.”

Oregon’s insurance commissioner, another supporter of the law, said new regulations could push up premiums for young customers by as much as 30% next year. He urged administration officials to slow enactment of the new rules.

A leading advocate for consumers in their 20s, Young Invincibles, sounded a similar caution, suggesting in a letter to administration officials that additional steps may be needed to protect young people from rising premiums. Young Invincibles mobilized in 2010 to help pass the healthcare law.

And regulators in Massachusetts, which was the model for Obama’s law, recently warned that although many residents and small businesses in the state “will see premium decreases next year, a significant number will see extreme premium increases.”

Remember this infamous scene from a truly demon-possessed liar:

Did demon-possessed Nancy Pelosi tell you what was inside this wicked bill?  Did demon-possessed Barack Obama tell you?  Did demon-possessed Harry Reid tell you that this wicked law would cause premiums to skyrocket???

I remember all these liars and many other demon-possessed liars in the Democrat Party – which stands for “DEMOnic BureauCRAT” – promising you the exact opposite of reality.  Because they are the party of lies and deceit.

You keep on trusting the holocaust baby murderers, America.  And you keep uncomprehendingly wondering why your country is sliding backward into meaningless mediocrity while your false messiah president keeps pumping out more and more of his demagoguery and lies.

We warned you that ObamaCare would cause death panels.  Democrats demonized us for predicting that.  Now they admit that we were telling the truth and they were demon-possessed liars for saying there wouldn’t be death panels.  We warned you that the law would massively drive up the cost of healthcare.  Now Democrats are admitting that conservatives were right and they were all demon-possessed liars for ever promising you otherwise.  We warmed you that a flood of doctors would flee the field of medicine and create a massive doctor shortage.  We rightly predicted that companies would get out of providing their workers insurance coverage due to this wicked law.  And now it’s happening just like we said it would.  Now Democrats are admitting that their wicked bill is in fact driving doctors out of medicine and creating a critical doctor shortage just as they impose an evil socialist takeover of the health care system that demands more doctors than ever.

Democrats are dishonest hypocrites: the unions who overwhelmingly back the Democrats and demanded this abomination be passed are now demanding that somebody else other than them pay the tab for it.

So, yes, the article goes on (it’s the LA – as in Liberal AlwaysTimes you know) to suggest that this “unexpected” massive cost to ObamaCare is really only temporary.  Just a minor hickup, folks.  But just remember that absoluately everything that the Democrats said about ObamaCare has been completely wrong.  And this damn thing was sold as “not adding one dime to the deficit” when that was a complete lie that adding TRILLIONS to the deficit.  How many times are you going to keep believing lies?

You deserve this, wicked America.  You deserve this and so much more.  And now your going to pay the bill for your false mesisiah.

California leads the nation.  And these days California is leading America right straight into the hell this once-great but now depraved nation truly deserves.  They’re the ones who are shocked, shocked shocked that 30% of the doctors the healthcare system needs to function are leaving medicine due to ObamaCare.  I don’t understand how it could happen, either.  I mean, pay the doctor less money (because they’re rich and Democrats say we should punish the rich, you know), dump more patients on him who can’t afford treatment, force them to move more way, waaaaay more paperwork to comply with the bureaucracy – and, yes, the death panels – and plant a few dozen bureaucratic agencies to watch over every single move you make ready to overrule your treatment decisions, and you’ll get more people entering medicine.  Right?

You want to know what else I’m predicting, since I’ve been dead solid perfect in all my forecasts about how a truly evil and demonic Democrat Party would destroy our health care system and murder millions of helpless Americans?  Try this one on for size: as we all know, elderly people tend to vote Republican, while younger people tend to vote Democrat.  And here we have these young Democrats left holding the bill for an incredibly costly ObamaCare fascist takeover.

And the costs are going to go up because of all that expensive treatment of the elderly – who tend to vote Republican.

So you just watch while the most wicked political party since the Nazis – and if there were an “National Socialist American Workers Party” the way we had a “National Socialist German Workers Party” (Nazi Party) you can bet your farm that it would be the same socialist cockroaches filling its ranks – begins to treat old people like Jews and tell them they need to die so that the young generation can live.

The Democrat Party is ultimately going to “pivot” to the young and turn on the elderly.  And treat them like Hitler treated the Jews and like Obama has treated the rich.

Mind you, they won’t admit they’re going to do that now; just like they wouldn’t admit that ObamaCare would drive up the cost of healthcare when they were lying to you to sell their abomination.

ObamaCare started out as a 2,000 page monstrosity.  It has now grown like a cancer to well over THIRTY THOUSAND PAGES as the regulations are being furiously written and added in to this demonic legislation.

When we voted for Obama, we literally voted for the coming beast whose useful idiot Obama is.

The other thing you can count upon is that demon-possessed Democrats will find a way to blame Republicans for the disaster they made the healthcare system with ObamaCare; and that a demon-possessed media will sell that lie and that a demon-possesssed nation will swallow that lie just as they have already swallowed so many other demonic lies before.

Liberals Are Fascists Who Silence Debate With Rabid Intolerance. Especially In ‘Quest For Truth’ Fields Such As Academia And Journalism.

February 15, 2013

Here’s yet another story of liberals being liberals – by which I mean liberals being intolerant fascists:

Lib West Virginia Prof Tells Students They Can’t Use FOX News in Her Class
Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, February 14, 2013, 2:23 PM

“FOX News makes me cringe.”

Political Science Professor Stephanie Wolfe West Liberty University

poly sci lib teacher Stephanie Wolfe

West Virginia professor Stephanie Wolfe told her class not to use FOX News in her class. WTOV9 reported:

Students and parents are questioning a college professor after she reportedly issued a syllabus that filtered student’s research options

The syllabus tells students in a West Liberty University political science course what sources they can and cannot use.

Among those students are asked not to use are The Onion, an openly fictitious parody of real-life news, and Fox News, a professional news organization.

In the syllabus, the professor allegedly says, “The tagline Fox News makes me cringe.”

“One of our values at West Liberty is to encourage students to go out and inquire and gather information and look at as many different sources as possible on any side, before you reach your opinion,” said Robin Capehart, president of West Liberty University.

Upset students and parents have taken their concerns to local media, like NEWS9’s news partner Dave Bloomquist at WWVA, who shared an email from a concerned parent with us.

Here’s a look at the lib instructor’s syllabus. syllibus (America Live) Stephanie takes her indoctrination duties seriously.

Now, in addition to their hypocrisy, another interesting feature about liberals is their dishonesty and refusal to ever actually admit their fascism even when caught red-handed being fascist:

In her own defense, Wolfe claimed that she never told students they weren’t allowed to use Fox News as a source.”

And, of course, it doesn’t matter if it’s right there on her damn syllabus that yes she did tell her students not to use Fox News.  Just like it doesn’t matter how many times Obama has been caught red-bloody-handed in one galling and appalling lie after another.

It is simply a FACT that liberals are THE most rabidly intolerant people in America; and that what is true of “ordinary” liberals is even more true of “professional” liberals.

This is why the two fields that most pat themselves on the back for their “openness to the truth” and for “tolerance” – academia and journalism (see here and here for more examples) – are in fact THE most intolerant and biased fields in America.  Stephanie Wolfe is merely one of thousands of rabidly intolerant pseudo-intellectuals who are too stupid to understand that they themselves are the very thing they claim to most despise.

When the beast comes, liberal professors and liberal journalists will be the first to worship him and endorse his mark.

What Liberals ‘Helping’ The Poor REALLY Looks Like (Exactly Like A Slum).

February 14, 2013

Liberals – with the help of the most dishonest media since Joseph Goebbels’ Ministry of Propaganda in the good old Nazi days or Joseph Stalin’s TASS in Moscow’s heyday – have convinced most ignorant people (i.e., the majority of the American people) that they are the ones who care about the poor.

Bullcrap.

They’ll tell you that unless you believe in their socialism you’re not a real Christian.  Even as they demand that art that puts the cross of Christ in a jar of urine be publicly funded and even as they openly attack religion on virtually every level of culture.

Again, bullcrap.

Obama sure didn’t give a flying damn about the poor before he decided to break his promise and run for president after saying he wouldn’t.  Because prior to that, he didn’t give the poor butkus.  And as hard as it is to be more cynical and selfish and greedy than Barack and Michelle Obama, Joe Biden actually managed to pull it off.  Obama’s less than one percent charitable giving – you know, with his OWN money rather than forcing other people to “give” – looks pretty damn good compared to Joe Biden’s less than one-eighth of one percent.

How do Democrats get away with demonizing Republicans when there are ten demons in them?  It’s easy: they are as dishonest and as slanderous as they are hypocritical.  So Mitt Romney – who was actually incredibly generous with his own money – was slandered by the media propaganda as being greedy while Barack Obama who actually IS greedy was eulogized as somebody who care’s deeply about these people he didn’t give a penny to when it mattered.

That’s why it was so easy for the party of FDR, of JFK, for 2000 Democrat candidate Al Gore and for 2004 Democrat candidate John Kerry to demonize Mitt Romney because he was rich just like they all were.  When you combine the flagrant dishonesty of the Democrat Party and the flagrant propaganda of the leftwing elite media, you can get away with pretty much anything.

Michelle Malkin in her excellent book “Culture of Corruption” documented that Valerie Jarrett (Obama’s top adviser was a ruthless liberal slumlord in Chicago before she became a liberal saint in Washington.

That’s right.  A slumlord.

But the Chicago Way is all the rave now.  Which is why liberal psycho Major Bloomberg took the trick with him to New York:

How in NYC the Homeless Pay $3,000/Month to Live in Tenements
Posted on February 12, 2013

I read a lot of news every day.  It’s become my life and my passion.  Rarely do I come across a story of greed and corruption so absurd that I can’t believe my own eyes as they scroll the page.  This is one of those stories.

This takes the concept of slumlord to an entirely new level.  As New York City struggles to find shelter for its increasingly large homeless population, some landlords are paying off their rent-stabilized tenants in order to overcharge the city on rentals for the homeless.  In some cases, the rent ends up being as high as $3,000 a month for a tiny room without a kitchen or a bathroom.  Yep, you read that correctly.  So next time you wonder why you are paying so much money for your little box in the sky, you can thank America’s growing slumlord industry.  Prepare your jaw to remain open for the next couple of minutes.

From the New York Times:

The city’s Department of Homeless Services pays many times the amount the rooms would usually rent for — spending over $3,000 a month for each threadbare room without a bathroom or kitchen — because of an acute shortage in shelters for homeless men and women.

Indeed, the amount the city pays — roughly half that amount goes to the landlord, while the other half pays for security and social services for homeless tenants — has encouraged Mr. Lapes to switch business models and become a major private operator of homeless shelters. He is by most measures the city’s largest and owns or leases about 20 of the 231 shelters citywide. Most of the other shelters and residences are run by the city or by nonprofit agencies, but his operation is profit-making, prompting criticism from advocates for the homeless and elected officials.

The fact that these modest living spaces have such high rents opens a window on a peculiarity of the city’s overall homeless policy. That policy, which was put in place in response to court settlements in 1979 and 2008, requires the city, under threat of sizable fines, to find a roof immediately for every homeless person. It has given landlords willing to house the homeless leverage to dictate rental prices and other terms.

With the number of homeless people rising to 30-year record levels — over 47,216 people as of early this month, 20,000 of them children — the city has struggled to find landlords willing to accommodate a population that includes people with mental health and substance abuse problems.

Wait a minute. The number of homeless is at a 30 year high?  How could this be in the booming economic recovery we’ve got going?

Joyce Colon, a resident there who entered the homeless system in December, said she was shocked by the violence and prostitution in the building.

“For $3,000 I could have gotten an apartment, a down payment and a security deposit and some furniture,” Ms. Colon, 49, said. “The landlord is getting $3,000 and I’m getting nothing.”

Patrick Markee, a senior policy analyst for the Coalition for the Homeless, blamed the Bloomberg administration for the continuing use of private landlords to house the homeless, citing a policy not to give the homeless priority for public housing projects and Section 8 vouchers because of long waiting lists.

Of course Bloomberg has his little paws in this somehow.  Perhaps he should’ve thought about this instead of spending his time banning large sodas.

“The crisis that’s causing the city to open so many new shelters is mostly of the mayor’s own making,” he said. “Instead of moving families out of shelters and into permanent housing, as previous mayors did, the city is now paying millions to landlords with a checkered past of harassing low-income tenants and failing to address hazardous conditions.”

Welcome to the recovery.

“We need to help those poor, poor people,” liberals say.

Because just like everybody else, the poor have way to much money for liberals to be happy unless they can steal it.

I’m a conservative, which means I don’t like slums.  And I sure don’t like the government creating them the way they’ve created Cabrini-Green and so many other thousands of hellholes.  Liberals love them and keep creating more and more and more of them and they get filthy rich doing it.  Because the more ignorant and the more oppressed and the more poverty-crushed and the more welfare-dependent and the more entitlement-demanding these desperate people are, the more they will vote for the people who are keeping them ignorant and oppressed and poor.

The fact of the matter is that conservatives are signficantly more generous with their own money and time than are liberals.

But the wolves have convinced the sheep that the sheepdogs are out to get them.  And now the sheepdogs are largely out of the wolves’ way.

P.S. Obama is nominating Penny Pritzker for Commerce Secretarywho happens to be the SAME Penny Pritzker who was at the EPICENTER of the sub-prime loan crisis that led to our housing collapse in 2008.  This same Chicago billionaire Penny Pritzker paid out a half million dollars in penalties (read “bribe money”) to the government to avoid being criminally charged like the common criminal Chicago thug she in fact is.  If I were a conspiracy theoriest, I would assume that Democrats literally intentionally created the 2008 collapse in order to take control of the government so they could REALLY destroy America from within the system.

P.P.S. Obama is a hypocrite who keeps showing the abject hypocrsiy of liberalism with his pick of Jack Lew to run the Treasury Department.  Remember how being rich and having investments in the Cayman Islands was really, really bad?  Well, that’s only true if the Cayman Island account holder happens to be a Republican; it’s FINE for Democrats.  But let’s also not forget that Jack Lew was actually heading up the unit at Citibank that was making huge profits betting that the Community Reinvestment Act-created housing bubble would colllapse and thus profiteering off of poor people.  And then there’s the fact that this turd accepted a nearly one million dollar “bonus” days before Citibank took BILLIONS in government bailout money.  Which is to say that Obama’s Treasury Secretary pick personally profitted from poor people being forced out of their homes into … slums.

I’ll leave it to the reader to decide whether Obama’s present pick for Treasury Secretary is better than the last one – who was a certified tax cheat being given the job to make sure that conservatives and Republicans paid “their fair share” of the taxes HE didn’t pay.
