A Radically Unsustainable, Toxic Worldview: The Massive ‘Moral Injury’ Caused By Atheism And Secular Humanism

May 18, 2015

Reading on page two of the main section of the May 14, 2015 edition of USA Today, I came across the following words from the article “Voices: Moral injury is also a war wound” by Gregg Zoroya, that screamed out at me:

The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that nearly one in four Americans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan developed post-traumatic stress disorder. The VA has treated 640,000 mental disorder cases from the wars, more than half of them PTSD.

Yet the science behind this disease that so emotionally paralyzes is still evolving and there is a heated debate among scientists.

Is it triggered purely by sudden, fear-based trauma to a sexual assault or an bomb explosion or the gathering of body parts of comrades from a battlefield?

Or is there a strain of PTSD, maybe a cousin of it, that has less to do with fear than with the ruthless disassembling of knowing what is right from what is wrong?

War is rife with good people feeling shame or guilt for what they did, whether it is opening fire on a car full of innocents because a driver fails to yield at a checkpoint, surviving combat while friends die or parsing the appropriate measure of abuse to pull confessions from an enemy.

Scientists are calling it moral injury. Former Navy psychiatrist William Nash, writing the introduction to Edmonds’ book, explains: “Moral injuries are wounds to beliefs and secondarily, to the identity of the person holding those beliefs, inflicted by events that violently contradict them.”

Nash, who today is director of psychological health for the Marine Corps, says, “We need to believe that the world is a good place; that we, ourselves, are good; and that our lives make sense somehow, that they are not just random chaos … Lose your grip on even one of (those assumptions) and it’s a long fall.”

And that’s PRECISELY what atheism and secular humanism amount to: “a long fall” into moral chaos and nihilism.

According to the Judeo-Christian worldview, God created the universe for man and created man as the capstone of His creation in His very own image (Genesis 1:26-27).  Over and over again, God calls His creation – which amounts to His self-expression – as “good.”  And He calls it good seven times (see Genesis 1:4, 10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31), reflecting the sevenfold perfection and completeness of God.  Yes, there was a Fall, and man plunged into sin and creation itself was affected by this corruption.  But it began as “good” and as the good work of a holy, morally perfect God.

We can view the world as fallen, yet still bearing the stamp of the divine, just as we can see the divine within ourselves.  There IS good; we ourselves HAVE the capacity of goodness within ourselves; our lives DO make sense and are NOT just random chaos.

Now, consider the atheist/secular humanist worldview: how did it all get here?  By nothing more than godless, random chaos.  And we got here through a lengthy, random procession of chaos by which the most vicious, ruthless creature survived by killing off all the weaker or more inferior ones around it.  Only if the law of the claw is “good” can we call ourselves “good.”  On the story of atheistic evolution we can call ourselves “good” only because according to the results of atheistic evolution we proved to be better at wiping out all of our competitors than our competitors were at wiping us out in the struggle for survival.  And we continue to be “good” only because we continue to be better at murdering and exterminating our competition than any other creature under the sun.  Atheists are hypocrites who affirm “survival of the fittest” as a past fact only to claim to utterly renounce it as a present reality.  So no, on the secular humanist story of evolution, we are NOT “good.”  And do our lives make sense somehow?  Again, NOT.  Our lives mean NOTHING because we CAME from nothing and when we die we shall surely be NOTHING but the same meaningless dust of the ground that surrounds us.  And there IS no ultimate purpose, no ultimate destiny not only for you but for your entire family, your entire race, your entire nation, your entire species and in fact the entire universe itself as it all ultimately grinds to an end when the same random process that spat us out ultimately swallows us back up again in cold, cosmic death and nothingness.

I keep saying it: true science and any true or legitimate understanding of humanity SCREAMS OUT THAT THERE IS A GOD.

And ANY view that refuses to acknowledge God is the religion of wicked fools that amounts to fatal “moral injury” to the human race.

I want you to read this article – which was actually a lecture delivered by William Lane Craig – and then reflect on the wisdom of this Marine psychologist who deals with reality rather than the empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense of secular humanism:

The Absurdity of Life Without God by William Lane Craig, a lecture given at Biola University on 5 March, 2002

(Painstakingly transcribed from tape)

This a topic that is most serious and somber: the absurdity of life without God.

Loren Eisley writes, “Man is the cosmic orphan.He’s the only creature in the universe who asks, ‘Why?’Other animals have instincts to guide them, but man has learned to ask questions: ‘Who am I?’‘Why am I here?’‘Where am I going?’”Ever since the Enlightenment, when men threw off the “shackles” of religion, man has tried to answer those questions without reference to God.But the answers that came back were not exhilarating, but dark and terrible: you are the accidental by-product of nature – the result of matter, plus time, plus chance.There is no reason for your existence; all you face is death.Modern man thought that when he got rid of God he freed himself from everything that stifled and oppressed him; instead, he found that in killing God, he had only orphaned himself.For if there is no God, then man’s life becomes, ultimately, absurd.If God does not exist, then both man and the universe are inevitably doomed to death.Man, like all biological organisms, must die.With no hope of immortality man’s life leads only to the grave.Compared to the infinite stretch of time, man’s life is but a brief infinitesimal moment; and yet this is all the life that he will ever know.And therefore every one of us must come face to face with what theologian Paul Tillich has called, “the threat of non-being.”For even though I know that now I exist, that now I am alive, I also know that someday I will no longer exist, that I will die.I will no longer be.And this thought is staggering and frightening; to think that the person I call I, myself, will no longer exist, that I will be no more.It is an overwhelming thought that the majority of us encounter first as children.Most of us simply grow to accept the fact, as we all learn to live with the inevitable.But the child’s insight of horror remains true.As the French existentialist, Jean Paul Sarte, observed, “Several hours or several years make no difference, once you have lost eternity.”

And the universe, too, faces a death of its own, scientists tell us that the universe is expanding, and the galaxies are growing further and further apart.As it does so it grows colder and colder as its energy is used up: eventually all the stars will burn out, and all matter will collapse into dead stars and black holes – there will be no light at all.There will be no heat.There will be no life.Only the corpses of dead stars and galaxies, ever expanding into the endless darkness, and the cold recesses of outer space – a universe in ruins.The entire universe marches irretrievably toward its grave.So not only is the life of each individual person doomed, the entire human race is doomed.The universe is plunging toward inevitable extinction; death is written throughout its structure.There is no escape.There is no hope.

If there is no God, then, man and the universe are doomed like prisoners awaiting execution; we await our inevitable death. There is no God. There is no immortality. And what is the consequence of this? It means that life itself becomes ultimately absurd. It means that the life that we do have is without ultimate significance, value, or purpose. Let’s look at each one of these.

First, there is no ultimate meaning without immortality and God. If each individual person passes out of existence when he dies, then what ultimate meaning can be given to his life? Does it really matter whether he ever existed or not? It might be said that his life was important because it influenced others or affected the course of history. But that shows only a relative significance to his life, not an ultimate significance. His life may be important relative to certain other events. But what is the ultimate significance to any of those events? If all of the events are meaningless, then what can be the ultimate significance of influencing any of them? Ultimately it makes no difference. Or look at it from another perspective: scientists say that the universe originated in a great explosion called ‘the Big Bang’ about 15 billion years ago. Suppose the Big Bang had never occurred: what ultimate difference would it have made? The universe is doomed to die anyway; in the end it makes no difference whether it ever existed or not. And therefore it is without ultimate significance. The same is true of the human race; mankind is a doomed race in a dying universe. Because the human race will eventually cease to exist, it makes no ultimate difference whether it ever did exist. mankind is thus no more significant than a swarm of mosquitoes or a barnyard of pigs, for their end is all the same: the same cosmic process that coughed them all up in the first place will eventually swallow them all up again. And the same is true of each individual person; the contribution of the scientists to the advance of human knowledge, the researches of the doctor to alleviate pain and suffering, the efforts of the diplomat to secure peace in the world, the efforts of good people everywhere to benefit the lot of the human race, all these come to nothing; in the end they don’t make one bit of difference. Not one bit. Each person’s life is therefore without ultimate significance. And because our lives are ultimately meaningless, the activities that we fill our lives with are also meaningless. The long hours spent in study at the university, our jobs, our interests, our friendships, all of these are, in the final analysis, ultimately meaningless. This is the horror of modern man. Because he ends in nothing, he ultimately is nothing.

But it’s important to see that its not just immortality that man needs if life is to be meaningful. Mere duration of existence does not suffice to make that existence meaningful. Man and the universe could exist forever, but if there were no God, that existence would still have no ultimate significance. To illustrate one science fiction short story told of a space traveler who was marooned on a barren chunk of rock lost in outer space. And he had with him two vials: one containing a potion that would give him immortality, and the other a poison to end his life. Realizing his hopeless predicament, he gulped down the vial of poison. And then, he had discovered to his horror, that he had drunk the wrong vial; he had swallowed the potion for immortality. And thus he was doomed to exist forever in a meaningless, unending life. Now if God does not exist, then our lives are just like that. They could go on, and on, and on, and still be utterly without meaning. We could still ask of life, ‘So what?’ So its not just immortality that man needs if life is to be ultimately significant. He needs God and immortality.And if God does not exist, then he has neither.

20th century man came to understand this fact. Read Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett; during this entire play two men carry on trivial, mind-numbing conversation, while waiting for a third man to arrive, who never does. And our lives are like that, Beckett is saying. We just kill time waiting – for what, we don’t know. In a tragic portrayal of man Beckett wrote another play – Breath – in which the curtain opens revealing a stage littered with junk. And for 30 long seconds the audience sits and stares in silence at that junk; and then the curtain closes. That’s all there is. The French existentialists Jean Paul Sarte and Albert Camus understood this as well. Sarte portrays life in his play No Exit as hell. The final line of the play are the words of resignation, “Well, let’s get on with it.” And thus Sarte writes elsewhere of the “nausea” of existence. Camus also saw life as absurd. At the end of his brief novel The Stranger, Camus’ hero discovers in a flash of insight that life has no meaning, and that there is no God to give it one. The French biochemist Jacques Monot seemed to echo these sentiments when he wrote in his work Chance and Necessity, “Man finally knows that he is alone in the indifferent immensity of the universe.”Thus if there is no God, then life becomes ultimately meaningless.Man and the universe are without ultimate significance.

Secondly, there is no ultimate value without God and immortality. If life ends at the grave, then ultimately it makes no difference whether one has lived as a Stalin or as a saint since one’s destiny is ultimately unrelated to one’s behavior. You may as well just live as you please; as the Russian writer Dhostyevsky put it, “If there is no immortality, then all things are permitted.” On this basis a writer like Ayan Rand is absolutely correct to praise the virtues of selfishness. No one holds you accountable; you might as well simply live totally for self. Indeed, when you think about it, it would be foolish to do anything else since life is too short to jeopardize it by acting out of anything but pure self-interest. Sacrifice for another person would be stupid. Kai Nielson, an atheist philosopher, who attempts to justify the viability of ethics without God, in the end admits, “We have not been able to show that reason requires the moral point of view, or that all really rational persons, unhoodwinked by myth or ideology, need not be individual egoists or classical amoralists. Reason doesn’t decide here. The picture I have painted for you is not a pleasant one; reflection on it is depresses me. Pure practical reason, even with a good knowledge of the facts, will not take you to morality.”

But the problem becomes even worse. For regardless of immortality, if there is no God, then there can be no objective standard of right and wrong. All we are confronted with, in Jean Paul Sarte’s words, is “the bare, valueless fact of existence.” Moral values are either just expressions of personal taste, or else the by-products of socio-biological evolution and conditioning. In the word of one humanist philosopher, “The moral principles that govern our behavior are rooted in habit and custom, feeling and fashion.” In a world without God, who is to say whose values are right, and whose are wrong? Who is to judge that the values of an Adolf Hitler are inferior to those of a Mother Theresa? The concept morality loses all meaning in a universe without God. As one contemporary atheistic ethicist points out, “To say that something is wrong because it is forbidden by God is perfectly understandable to anyone who believes in a law-giving God. But to say that something is wrong, even though no God exists to forbid it, is not understandable. The concept of moral obligation is unintelligible apart from the idea of God. The words remain, but their meaning is gone.” In a world without God, there can be no objective right and wrong, only our culturally and personally relative subjective judgments. But that means that it is impossible to condemn war, oppression, or crime as evil. Nor can one praise love, brotherhood, or equality as good. For in a universe without God, good and evil do not exist. there is only the bare, valueless fact of existence. And there is no one to say that you are right, and I am wrong.

Thirdly, there is no ultimate purpose without immortality and God. If death stands with open arms at the end of life’s trail, then what is the goal of life? To what end has life been? Has it all been for nothing? Is there no purpose at all for life? And what of the universe? Is it utterly pointless? If its destiny is but a cold grave in the recesses of outer space, then the answer must be yes. It is pointless. There is no goal, no purpose, for which the universe exists. The litter of a dead universe will just go on expanding and expanding forever. And what of man? Is there no purpose at all for the existence of the human race? Or will it simply peter out someday, lost in the indifference of an oblivious universe? The English writer H.G. Wells foresaw such a prospect. In his novel, The Time Machine, Wells’ time traveler journeys far into the future to discover the destiny of man. And all he finds is a dead earth except for a few lichens and moss orbiting a gigantic red sun. The only sounds are the rush of the wind, and the gentle ripple of the sea. “Beyond these lifeless sounds,” writes Wells, “the world was silent. Silent? It would be hard to convey the stillness of it. All of the sounds of man, the bleating of sheep, the cries of birds, the hum of insects, the stir that makes the background of our lives, all that was over.” And so, Wells’ time traveler returned. But to what? To merely an earlier point on the same purposeless rush towards oblivion. One reading this might exclaim, “No, no! It can’t end that way!” But this is reality in a universe without God. There is no hope; there is no purpose. Reflect on T.S. Elliot’s haunting lines:

This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends

This is the way the world ends

Not with a bang but a whimper.

And what is true of mankind as a whole, is also true of each of us individually. We are here to no purpose. If there is no God, then your life is not qualitatively different from that of a dog. That may sound harsh, but it’s true. As the ancient writer of Ecclesiastes put it, “For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is vanity. All go to the same place. All came from the dust and all return to the dust. (Ecc 3:19-20). In this book that reads more like a piece of modern existentialist literature than a book from the Bible, the writer demonstrates the futility of pleasure, wealth, education, political fame, and honor, in a life doomed to end in death. His verdict? “Vanity of vanities, all is vanity!” (Ecc 12:8). If life ends at the grave, then we have no ultimate purpose for living.

But more than that, even if life did not end in death, without God life would still be without purpose. For man and the universe would then be mere accidents of chance thrust into existence for no reason. Without God the universe is a result of a cosmic accident, a chance explosion. There is no reason for which it exists. And as for man, he’s nothing but a freak of nature, a blind product of matter, plus time, plus chance. There’s no more purpose in life for the human race than for a species of insect – for both are the result of the blind interaction of chance and necessity. As one philosopher has put it, “Human life is mounted upon a sub-human pedestal, and must shift for its self alone, in the heart of a silent and mindless universe.” And what is true of the universe and of the human race is also true of us as individuals. We are here to no purpose. We are the results of certain combinations of heredity and environment. We’re victims of a sort of environmental roulette. Psychologists following Sigmund Freud tell us that our actions are really the result of repressed sexual tendencies. Sociologists following B.F. Skinner argue that all of our choices are really determined by conditioning so that freedom is an illusion. Biologists like Francis Crick regard man as an electro-chemical machine which can be controlled by altering its genetic code. If God does not exist, then you are just a miscarriage of nature, thrust into a purposeless universe to live a purposeless life. So if God does not exist, that means that man and the universe exist to no purpose (since the end of everything is death), and that they came to be for no purpose (since they are only blind products of chance). In short, life is ultimately without reason.

Do you understand then the gravity of the alternatives before us? For if God exists, then there is hope for man. But if God does not exist, then all we are left with is despair. Do you understand why the existence of God is a question that is so vital to man? As one writer has aptly put it, “If God is dead, then man is dead too.” Unfortunately, the mass of people do not understand this fact. They continue on as though nothing had changed. Consider the story told by Frederick Nietzsche of The Madman, who in the early morning hours burst into the marketplace, lantern in hand, crying, “I seek God! I seek God!”Since many of those standing about did not believe in God, he provoked much laughter.‘Did God get lost?They yelled.Or, is He hiding?Or, perhaps He’s gone on a voyage, or emigrated!And thus they yelled and laughed and taunted the madman.And then, Nietzsche writes, the madman turned in their midst and pierced them with his eyes.“Whither is God?” he cried.“I shall tell you!We have killed him!You and I!All of us are His murderers!But how have we done this?How were we able to drink up the sea?Who gave us the sponge to wipe up the entire horizon?What did we do when we unchained this earth from its sun?Whither is it moving now?Away from all suns?Are we not plunging continually backward, sideward, forward in all directions?Is there any up or down left?Are we not straying as through an infinite nothing?Do we not feel the breath of empty space?Has it not become colder?Is not night and more night coming on all the while?Must not lanterns be lit in the morning?Do we not hear anything yet of the noise of the gravediggers who are burying God?God is dead!And we have killed Him!How shall we, the murderers of all murderers, comfort ourselves?”The crowd stared at the madman in silence and astonishment.At last he dashed his lantern to the ground.“I have come too early!”He said.“This tremendous event is still on its way.It has not yet reached the ears of men.”People did not truly comprehend what they had done in killing God.And yet, Nietzsche predicted that some day, people would realize the implications of atheism, and this realization would usher in an age of nihilism that is the destruction of all meaning and value in life.“This most gruesome of guests”, he said, “is standing already at the door.Our whole European culture is moving for some time now with a tortured tension that is growing from decade to decade as toward a catastrophe, restlessly, violently, headlong, like a river that wants to reach the end, that no longer reflects, that is afraid to reflect.”Most people still do not reflect upon the consequences of atheism, and so, like the crowd in the marketplace, go unknowingly on their way.And yet, when we realize, as did Nietzsche, what atheism really implies, then his question presses hard upon us: “How shall we, the murderers of all murderers, comfort ourselves?”

About the only solution which the atheists can offer is that we just face the absurdity of life bravely and live valiantly. Bertrand Russell, for example, wrote that “we must build our lives upon the firm foundation of unyielding despair. Only by recognizing that the world really is a terrible place can we successfully come to terms with life.” Camus said that we should honestly recognize life’s absurdity and then live in love for one another.” But the fundamental problem with this solution is that it is simply impossible to live consistently and happily within the framework of such a world view. If one lives consistently, he will not be happy. If he lives happily, it is only because he is not consistent. Francis Schaeffer explained this point well, saying, “Modern man lives in a two-story universe. In the lower story is the finite world without God. Here life is absurd (as we have seen). In the upper story are meaning, value, and purpose. Now modern man lives in the lower story because he believes that there is no God. But because he cannot live consistently and happily in such a world, he therefore makes leaps of faith into the upper story to affirm that life has meaning, value, and purpose, even though he has absolutely no right to since man and the lower story does not believe in God. Modern man is totally inconsistent to make this leap because these values cannot exist without God, and man and the lower story does not have God.”

Let us look again, then, at each of those three areas in which we saw that life was absurd without God, to show how modern man cannot live consistently and happily with his atheism.

First, the area of meaning. We saw that without God life has no ultimate meaning. And yet, philosophers continue to live as though life were meaningful. For example, Sarte argued that one may create meaning for his life by freely choosing to follow a certain course of action. Sarte, himself, chose Marxism. Now this is utterly inconsistent. It is inconsistent to say that life is objectively meaningless and then to say that one can create meaning for his life. If life really is absurd, then man is trapped in the lower story. To try to create meaning in life represents a leap to the upper story. But Sarte has no basis for this leap. Without God, there can be no objective meaning in life. Sarte’s program is thus actually an exercise in self-delusion – for the universe doesn’t really acquire a meaning just because I happen to give it one. This is obvious. For suppose you give the universe one meaning, and I give it another. Who is right? Well, the obvious answer is neither one. For the universe without God remains objectively meaningless no matter how we happen to regard it. Sarte is really saying, ‘Let’s pretend that life and the universe have meaning.’ And that is just fooling yourself. The point is this: if God does not exist, then life is objectively meaningless. But man cannot live consistently and happily as though life were meaningless. And so in order to be happy, he pretends that his life has meaning. But this is of course utterly inconsistent; for without God, man and the universe remain without any real significance.

Turn now to the problem of value.Here is where the most blatant inconsistencies occur.First of all, atheistic humanists are totally inconsistent in affirming the traditional values of love and human brotherhood.Camus has been rightly criticized for inconsistently holding both to the absurdity of life, on the one hand, and to ethics of human love and brotherhood on the other.The two are logically incompatible.Bertrand Russell, too, was inconsistent.For although he was an atheist, he was also an outspoken social critic, denouncing war and restrictions on sexual freedom.Russell admitted that he could not live as though ethical values were simply a matter of personal taste and that he therefore found his own views, and I quote, “incredible.”“I do not know the solution,” he confessed.The point is that if there is no God, then objective right and wrong do not exist.As Dhostovesky said, “All things are permitted.”But Dhostovesky also showed that man cannot live this way.He cannot live as though as though it’s perfectly all right for soldiers to slaughter innocent children.He cannot live as though it’s perfectly acceptable for dictatorial regimes to follow systematic pograms of physical torture of political prisoners.He cannot live as though its all right for dictators like Stalin or Pol Pot to ruthlessly exterminate millions of their own countrymen.Everything in him cries out to say that these acts are wrong, really wrong.But if God does not exist, then he cannot.And so, he makes a leap of faith to affirm values anyway.And when he does, he reveals the inadequacy of a world without God.

The horror of a world devoid of value was brought home to me with new intensity several years ago as I viewed a BBC television documentary called “The Gathering.” It concerned the reunion of certain survivors of the Holocaust in Jerusalem where they shared experiences and rediscovered lost friendships. Now I had heard stories of the Holocaust before and even visited camps like Dachau and Buchenwald. And I thought I was beyond being shocked by further tales of horror. But I found that I was not. One woman prisoner, for example, a nurse, told how she was made the gynecologist at Auswitzch. She observed that certain pregnant women were grouped together by the soldiers under the direction of Dr. Mengele, and housed in the same barracks. Some time passed and she noticed that she no longer saw any of these women. She made inquirees: “Where are the pregnant women who were housed in that barracks?” she asked. “Oh, haven’t you heard,” came the reply, “Dr. Mengele used them for vivisection.” Another woman told how Mengele had had her breast bound up so she could no longer suckle her baby. The doctor wanted to learn how long an infant could survive without nourishment. And desperately this poor woman tried to keep her baby alive by giving it bits of bread soaked in coffee. But to no avail. Each day the baby lost weight – a fact which was eagerly monitored by Dr. Mengele. Finally a nurse then came secretly to this woman, and said to her, “I’ve arranged for a way for you to get out of here. But you cannot take your baby with you. I’ve brought a morphine injection which you can give to your child to take its life.” And when this woman protested the nurse said to her, “Look, your baby is going to die anyway. At least save yourself.” And so this poor woman took the life of her own child. Mengele was furious when he learned he had lost his experimental specimen, and he searched among the corpses of the discarded babies until he could find the body to have one last weighing.

My heart was torn by these stories.One rabbi who survived Auswitzch summed it up well when he said “It was as though a world existed in which all of the Ten Commandments had been reversed: Thou shalt kill, thou shalt lie, thou shalt steal, and so forth.Mankind has never seen such a hell.”And yet, if God does not exist, then our world IS Auswitzch.There is no absolute right and wrong.All things are permitted.But no atheist, no agnostic, can live consistently with such a view.Nietzsche himself, who proclaimed the necessity of living beyond good and evil, broke with his mentor, Richard Waugner, precisely over the issue of the composer’s strident German nationalism and anti-Semitism.Similarly, Sarte, writing in the aftermath of the second World War, condemned anti-Semitism.He declared that a doctrine that leads to extermination is not merely an opinion or a matter of personal taste of equal value with its opposite.In his important essay, “Existentialism is a Humanism,” Sarte struggled vainly to elude the contradiction between his denial of divinely pre-established values in his urgent desire to affirm the value of human persons.He could not live with the implications of his own denial of ethical absolutes.

A second problem is that if God does not exist and there is no immortality, then all the evil acts of men go unpunished.And all the sacrifices of good people go unrewarded.But who can live with such a view?Richard Wombrandt, who was tortured for his faith in communist prison, wrote, “The cruelty of atheism is hard to believe when man has no faith in the reward of faith in the reward of good or the punishment of evil.There is no reason to be human.There is no restraint from the depths of evil which is in man.The communist torturers often said, ‘There is no God.There is no hereafter.No punishment for evil.We can do what we wish!’I have even heard one torturer say, ‘I thank God in whom I don’t believe that I have lived to this hour when I can express all of the evil in my heart.’He expressed it in unbelievable brutality and torture inflicted on prisoners.”

The English theologian Cardinal Newman once said that, “If I believed that all of the evils and injustices of life throughout history were not to be made right by God in the afterlife, why, I think I should go mad.”Rightly so.And the same applies to acts of self-sacrifice.A number of years ago a terrible mid-winter air disaster occurred in Washington, D.C.A plane leaving Dulles Airport smashed into a bridge spanning the Potomac River, plunging its passengers into the icy waters.And as the rescue helicopters came attention was focused on one man, who again and again pushed the dangling rope ladder to other passengers rather than be pulled to safety himself.Six times he passed the ladder by, and then when the helicopters came again, he was gone.He had freely given his life so that others might live.The entire nation turned its eyes on this man with respect and admiration for the selfless and good act that he had performed.And yet if the atheist is right, that man was not noble; why he did the stupidest thing possible.He should have gone for the rope ladder first, pushed others out of the way if necessary in order to reach it.But to give his own life for other people for whom he had never even known, all the life he would ever have, what for?For the atheist there can be no reason.And yet the atheist, like the rest of us, instinctively reacts with praise for this man’s selfless action.Indeed I think one will never find an atheist who lives consistently with his system.For a universe without moral accountability and devoid of value is unimaginably terrible.

Finally let’s look at the problem of purpose in life. The only way that most people who deny purpose in life manage to live happily is either by making up some purpose for their lives, which amounts to self-delusion, as we saw with Sarte, or else by not carrying out their view to its logical conclusions. Take the problem of death, for example. According to psychologist Ernst Block, the only way that modern man lives in the face of death is by sub-consciously borrowing the belief in immortality which his forefathers held to. Even though he himself no longer has any basis for this belief, since he does not believe in God. Block states that the belief that life ends in nothing is hardly (in his words) sufficient to keep the head high and to work as if there were no end. The remnants of a belief in immortality, writes Block, modern man does not feel the chasm that unceasingly surrounds him, and will most certainly engulf him at last. Through these remnants he saves his sense of self-identity. Through them the impression arises that man is not perishing, but only that one day the world has the whim no longer to appear to him. Block concludes, “This quite shallow courage feasts on a borrowed credit card; it lives from earlier hopes and the support that they have once provided.” But modern man no longer has any right to that support, since he rejects God. But in order to live purposefully, he makes a leap of faith to affirm a reason for living.

We often find the same inconsistency among those who say that man and the universe came to exist for no reason or purpose but just by chance.Unable to live in an impersonal universe in which everything is the result of blind chance these people begin to ascribe personality and motives to the physical processes themselves.It’s a bizarre way of speaking – and it represents a leap from the lower to the upper story.For example, the brilliant Russian physicist, Zodovitzchen Novakoff, in contemplating the universe, asks, “Why did nature choose to create this universe rather than another?”‘Nature’ here has obviously become a sort of ‘God substitute,’ filling the role and function of the Creator.Similarly, Francis Crick, halfway through his book “The Origin of the Genetic Code” begins to spell ‘nature’ with a capital ‘N’ – and speaks of natural selection as being “clever” and “thinking” of what it will do.similarly Fred Hoyle, the English astronomer, attributes to the universe itself the properties of God.For Carl Sagan, the cosmos, with which he always spelled with a capital letter, obviously fulfills the role of a God-substitute.Though all of these men profess not to believe in God, they smuggle in a God-substitute through the back door because they cannot bear to live in a universe in which everything is the result of impersonal forces.

And it’s interesting to see many thinkers betray their views when they are pushed to the logical conclusions.For example, feminists have raised a storm of protest over Freudian sexual psychology because, they say, its chauvinistic and degrading to women.And, some psychologists have nuckled under and revised their theories.Now this is totally inconsistent.If Freudian psychology is really true then it doesn’t matter if its degrading to women.You can’t change the truth because you don’t like what it leads to.But the problem is that people can’t live consistently and happily in a world where other persons are devalued.And yet, if God does not exist, then nobody has any value.The only way you can consistently support women’s rights is by belief in God.For if God does not exist, women have no more rights than a female goat or a chicken has rights.In nature, whatever is, is right.IfGod does not exist, then natural selection dictates that the male of the species is the dominant and aggressive one.In nature, whatever is, is right.But who can live with such a view?Apparently not even Freudian psychiatrists who betray their theories when pushed to their logical conclusions.

Or take the sociological behaviorism of a man like B.F. Skinner.This view leads to the sort of society envisioned by George Orwell in his novel “1984,” where the government controls and programs the thoughts of everybody.If Pavlov’s dog can be made to salivate when a bell rings, so can a human being.And if Skinner’s theories are right, there can be no objection to treating people like the rats in Skinner’s rat boxes – they run through their mazes coaxed on by food an electric shocks.According to Skinner all our actions are programmed anyway.And if God does not exist, then no moral objection can be raised against treating people like human guinea pigs – because man is not qualitatively different from a rat.For both are the result of matter, plus time, plus chance.But again who can live with such a dehumanizing view.

Or finally take the biological determinism of a man like Francis Crick.The logical conclusion is that man is like any other laboratory specimen.The world was horrified when it learned that in camps like Dachau and Auswitzch the Nazis had used prisoners for medical experiments on living human beings.But why not?If God does not exist there can be no moral objection to using people as human guinie pigs.A memorial at Dachau says, “Nie vida,” never again.But this sort of thing continued to go on.It was recently revealed, for example, that in the United States after the war certain minority group persons where injected unbeknownst to them with a sterilization drug by medical researchers.Must we not protest that this is wrong?That people are more than just electro-chemical machines?The end of this view is population control, in which the weak and the unwanted are killed off to make room for the strong.But the only way that we can protest this consistently is if God exists.Only if God exists can there be purpose in life.

The dilemma of modern man is thus truly terrible. And in so far as postmodern man (so called) denies the existence of God and the objectivity of value and purpose, this dilemma remains unrelieved for postmodern man as well. Indeed it is precisely the awareness that modernism issues inevitably in absurdity and despair that constitutes the anguish of postmodernism. In some respects postmodernism simply is the awareness of the bankruptcy of modernity. The atheistic world is insufficient to sustain a happy and consistent life. Man cannot live consistently and happily as though life were ultimately without meaning, value, and purpose. If we try to live consistently within the framework of the atheistic view, then we shall find ourselves profoundly unhappy. If we manage to live happily, it is only by giving lie to the worldview of atheism. Confronted with this dilemma, man flounders pathetically for some means of escape.

In a remarkable address to the American Academy for the Advancement of Science in 1991, Dr. LD. Rue, confronted with the predicament of modern man, boldly advocated that we deceive ourselves by means of some “noble lie” into thinking that we and the universe still have value.Claiming that the lesson of the last two centuries is that intellectual and moral relativism is profoundly the case, Dr. Rue muses that the consequences of such a realization is that one’s quest for personal wholeness or self fulfillment, and the quest for social coherence, become independent from one another.This is because on the view of relativism the search for self fulfillment becomes radically privatized.If each person chooses his own set of values and meaning, Rue says there is no final objective reading on the world for the self.There is no universal vocabulary for integrating cosmology and morality.If we are to avoid what he calls “the madhouse option,” where self fulfillment is pursued regardless of social coherence, and if we are to avoid what he calls “totalitarian option,” where social coherence is imposed at the expense of personal fulfillment, then, he says, we have no choice but to embrace some “noble lie” that will inspire us to live beyond our selfish interests and so achieve social coherence.A noble lie, he says, is one that deceives us, tricks us, compels us beyond self interests, beyond ego, beyond family, nation, and race.It is a lie because it tells us that the universe is infused with value – which is a great fiction.Because it makes a claim to universal truth when there is none, and because it tells me not to live for self interest – which is evidently false.But, says Rue, without such lies, we cannot live.

This is the dreadful verdict pronounced over modern man.In order to live, he must live in self deception.But even the noble lie option is, in the end, unworkable.For how can one believe in these noble lies while at the same time believing in atheism and relativism?The more convinced you are of the necessity of a noble lie, the less you are able to believe in it.Like a placebo, the noble lie only works on those who believe it is the truth.Once we’ve seen through the deception, the lie has lost its power over us.And thus ironically, the noble lie cannot solve our human predicament for anyone who has come to see that predicament.The noble lie option only leads, therefore, at best, to a society in which an elitest group of Illuminati deceive the masses for their own good by perpetuating the noble lie.But then, why should those of us, who are enlightened, follow the masses in their deception?Why should we sacrifice self interests for a fiction?If the great lesson of the past two centuries is moral and intellectual relativism, then why, if we could, pretend that we do not know this truth and live a lie instead?If one answers, “Well for the sake of social coherence,” one may legitimately respond, “Why should I sacrifice my self interest for the sake of social coherence?The only answer the relativist can give to this question is that social coherence IS in my best interest.But the problem with this answer is that self interest and social coherence do not always coincide.My interest and the interest of the herd are not always the same.Beside, if out of self interest I do care about social coherence, the totalitarian option is always open to me.Forget the noble lie, and simply maintain social coherence, as well as my own self fulfillment, at the expense of the personal wholeness of the masses.Generations of Soviet leaders – who extolled proletarian virtues while they rode in limousines and dined on caviar on their country dachas – found this alternative quite workable.

Now, Dr. Rue would undoubtedly regard such an option as morally repugnant.But therein lies the rub; Rue’s dilemma is that he obviously values – deeply – both social coherence and personal wholeness for their own sakes.In other words, they are objective values – which according to his philosophy do not exist.He has already leaped to the upper story.The noble lie option thus affirms what it denies – and so refutes itself.

But if atheism fails in this regard, what about biblical Christianity? According to the Christian worldview, God does exist, and man’s life does not end at the grave. In the resurrection body man may enjoy eternal life and fellowship with God. And biblical Christianity therefore provides the two conditions necessary for a meaningful, valuable, and purposeful life: namely, God and immortality. Because of this, we can live consistently and happily. The Bible affirms that life is ultimately significant because we have eternal life which is the knowledge of God forever. This is the fulfillment of human existence, it is what we were made for. moreover, moral values are rooted in the nature of God Himself, and God’s moral commandments constitute for us our objective moral duties. Moreover the moral choices that we make in this life have an eternal significance because we will be held accountable for them by the holy God. The purpose of life, as the Westminster Catechism states, is to glorify God, and to enjoy Him forever. And thus biblical Christianity succeeds precisely where atheism breaks down.

Now, I want to be perfectly clear that none of this shows that biblical Christianity is true. But what it does show, I think, is to spell out clearly the alternatives. If God does not exist, then life is futile. If the God of the Bible does exist, then life is meaningful. Only the second of these two alternatives enables us to live consistently and happily.

And therefore it seems to me that even if these two options were absolutely equal, the rational person ought to choose biblical Christianity. That is to say, it seems to me positively irrational to prefer death, futility, and despair to hope, meaningfulness, and happiness. As Pascal said, “we have nothing to lose, and infinity to gain.” The cosmic orphan can come home.

No God means no meaning, no value and no purpose.  Period.  End of story.  DEAL WITH IT.

I simply state it as a categorical fact: if there is no God, there is no “good.”  And we ought to be pursuing the correct understanding of the ONLY kind of “good” we can be by murdering and raping one another as fast as we can until we stand on a mountain of skeletons as the Darwinian “fittest” specimen – having successfully killed off everything else around us.

We are seeing as we speak the toxic effect of Islam: the ONLY way you can have an Islam that is “the religion of peace” is to bow down before Allah and acknowledge your Muslim masters according to the harsh dictates of sharia law.  Because Islam is NOT the religion of “peace”; it is the religion of SUBMISSION.  And “submission” by as much force and violence and terror is necessary to MAKE you submit.  Because ANY legitimate understanding of “Islam” entails living out the religion according to the life and revelation of its Prophet, Muhammad.  And Muhammad was a man of war and violence and conquest and slavery and genocide.

ANY understanding of Islam that does not accurately and honestly reflect the murderous, vicious life of the Prophet Muhammad is a perversion and a lie of history.  And it is refuted by history and by reality no matter how sincere the perverter of history’s motives might be to fabricate a religion that avoids the murderous viciousness of its founder and Prophet.

We are seeing hell on earth unleashed by those who would follow in the example of the Prophet Muhammad and his wicked religion of Islam.  And the people who are carrying out that hell are the most faithful adherents of how Muhammad lived his own life and commanded his followers to live their lives.

And it is the identical same way with atheism and secular humanism.   These worldviews are one thing and one thing only: a boot stamping on a human face forever.

I recall a haunting quote from a man who experienced the direct result of atheism and its ramifications:

If we present man with a concept of man which is not true, we may well corrupt him. When we present him as an automation of reflexes, as a mind-machine, as a bundle of instincts, as a pawn of drives and reactions, as a mere product of instincts, heredity, and environment, we feed the despair to which man is, in any case, already prone. I became acquainted with the last stages of corruption in my second concentration camp in Auschwitz. The gas chambers of Auschwitz were the ultimate consequence of the theory that man is nothing but the product of heredity and environment—or, as the Nazis liked to say, of ‘Blood and Soil.’ I am absolutely convinced that the gas chambers of Auschwitz, Treblinka, and Maidanek were ultimately prepared not in some Ministry or other in Berlin, but rather at the desks and in the lecture halls of nihilistic scientists and philosophers.
—Viktor E. Frankl, Holocaust survivor and Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry, University of Vienna Medical School; from his book, The Doctor and the Soul

Ideas have consequences.  And the consequences of atheism and secular humanism are hell on earth.  FAR more people have died – and died miserably and without any dignity whatsoever – as the result of communism (I.e. official state atheism) than have died as the result of every other worldview COMBINED.

Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Chairman Mao and the worst mass murderers of history were ALL self-acknowledged atheists and godless evolutionists.  And their atheism entailed genocide on a scale that the human race had never so much as imagined prior to the rise of atheism as a legitimate worldview.  And I simply defy any atheist or secular humanist to explain to me how Hitler, Stalin and Mao were “bad evolutionists” or “bad atheists” the way we would ascribe to someone who fails to live up to the teachings of Jesus (e.g. “the Sermon on the Mount”) as being “bad Christians.”  I defy you to explain to me how evolution Darwinism proscribe the genocide of a competitor for the scarce resources that YOUR people want “in the struggle for life” (as Darwin himself called it in the title of his famous work).

Atheists conveniently forget that fact.  And oh, yes, there is a damn good reason for that.  “Favoured Races .”  You know, just like the Aryan race that Hitler envisioned.   The “Struggle for Life,” because in order to be the “fittest” I have to eat you before you can eat me.

And that is the ONLY “good” and the ONLY way for your life to “make sense” given any genuine acceptance of godless evolution.

I have the Ten Commandments from God; you have your precious atheist-based Darwinism.  One of them produces morality, the other eradicates it and crushes the dignity of the human spirit by “fundamentally transforming” us into creatures who descended from bugs.  I’ll take my God-morality over your bug-morality any day.

Karl Marx’s international socialism and Adolf Hitler’s national socialism were both based on the new modern “science” of evolution.  As I point out in a past article, Nazism was applied Darwinism for the very simple reason that Darwinism entails social Darwinism and if the theory is truly sound, we ought to live our lives by its obvious implications.

Do you want meaning?  Do you want value?  Do you want purpose?  You WON’T find it in evolution unless you’re a pathological hypocrite who perverts the obvious, just as you won’t find “peace” in Islam unless you pervert the obvious truth about Muhammad and the world’s most intolerant religion that he fabricated and which enslaves a billion souls today.

Rather, if you truly do want meaning, value, purpose and peace, you can only find these in the Prince of Peace, who said “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life,” Who said that He came to give “life to the full.”

 

The Full Horror Revealed: We Now Know How America Will Collapse COMPLETELY From Within Due To Obama’s Undermining Of Economy, Security

May 11, 2015

I’m seeing more and more articles popping up from traditionally leftist sources acknowledging the epic, total fail that is, was and has been ObamaCare.  Yesterday, the reliably liberal USA Today front page had an article which I found in the print version titled, “Ky hospitals suffocating under ObamaCare: Facilities facing layoffs – and even shutdowns.”  That article is a living, breathing demonstration that everything the Republican governors who refused ObamaCare and successfully sued to not be forced to implement loudly predicted would happen as the federal government reimbursement rates would ultimately fail to keep up with the exorbitantly expensive costs of implementing ObamaCare.  As merely one example, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said back in 2013:

We will not allow President Obama to bully Louisiana into accepting an expansion of Obamacare.

We have rejected Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion in Louisiana because it would cost Louisiana taxpayers up to $1.7 billion over the next ten years and move nearly 250,000 Louisianians from private coverage to Medicaid.

“The disastrous rollout of Obamacare is a case in point that we don’t need top-down, one-size-fits-all federal mandates, and instead should continue to focus on health care solutions that make sense for Louisiana.

“Obamacare needs to be repealed. The dysfunction of the website and the President’s broken promises on being able to keep your health plan are just the tip of the iceberg in regards to the problems with this law.”

A grossly biased CNN Money article still managed to at least say this much about why Republican governors “stood their ideological ground”:

A number of governors, particularly in red states, have stood their ideological ground and chosen not to expand, citing concerns about the additional financial burden. The federal government will pay for 100% of the expansion for the first three years, then gradually reduce its subsidy to 90% by 2020.

Some governors have said that expansion would involve additional costs that they couldn’t afford and enlarge a program that they consider broken. In many states, however, various analyses show that states would stand to gain millions of dollars by expanding the program, at least initially.

The article I cite above detailing the collapse of the health delivery system in Kentucky begins:

LEXINGTON, Ky. — While Kentucky has gained national prominence as the only Southern state to fully embrace Obamacare, its hospitals say the law has left them facing billions of dollars in cuts and forced them to lay off staff, shut down services and worry for their financial health and, in some cases, survival.

The Kentucky Hospital Association outlined its concerns in a report released Friday called “Code Blue,” saying payment cuts to hospitals are expected to reach nearly $7 billion through 2024. “Kentucky hospitals will lose more money under the Affordable Care Act than they gain in revenue from expanded coverage,” it said, experiencing a net loss of $1 billion by 2020.

“This report provides the real picture of what our hospitals are facing,” KHA President Mike Rust said during a press conference at the Lexington Convention Center, where the group was holding its annual convention. The Medicaid expansion has given many residents health coverage that has brought new money into hospitals, but “the rest of the story is the cuts.”

Hospitals are suffering a net loss, officials said, partly because about three-quarters of newly-insured Kentuckians signed up for Medicaid, which reimburses hospitals less than it costs to treat patients. Nationally, the Congressional Budget Office projected half of newly-insured patients would have private insurance. But Kentucky is a poor state, so most people who signed up for Obamacare — officially the Affordable Care Act — have qualified for expanded Medicaid, which covers those earning less than 138 percent of the federal poverty level, or about $33,000 for a family of four.

You just watch how the biased USA Today that wrote off Kentucky’s dilemma as being the result of being “a poor state” fails to understand how EVERY state will ultimately be a “poor state” under ObamaCare.  As an example based on something called a “fact,” consider California.  An article from Covered California – ObamaCare in California – touted that “495,073 people selected health plans during the open-enrollment period ending Feb. 22, 2015.”  It points out the fact that “Nearly nine out of every 10 new enrollees qualified for some level of financial help for 2015,” which means that SOMEBODY ELSE is going to be forced to pay for them.  But here’s the real point: versus those 495,073 people who signed up for ObamaCare by the deadline, “Meanwhile, more than 779,000 consumers enrolled in Medi-Cal from Nov. 15 through Jan. 31. Medi-Cal enrollment continues year-round.”

That means that as of March 5, Medicare accounted for 61% of the total ObamaCare coverage.  And as the article points out, that enrollment continues and therefore continues to expand and grow – all year.  Which means by the end of the year you can damn well bloody BET that the total of Medicare enrollees will be 3/4s of all ObamaCare enrollees.  And nobody is calling California “a poor state.”  Which is another way of saying that the CBO was dreadfully wrong in its horribly flawed analysis.  ObamaCare is a depth charge that will sink and explode right in the bowels of our health care system and ultimately collapse it.

It’s kind of like that line from the movie Unforgiven where a hit man says of his victims, “Yeah, well, I guess they had it coming.”  And Will Munny points out the far grimmer truth – “We all got it coming, kid.”  Under ObamaCare, we’re ALL “poor states” now.  And we’ve ALL got it coming to us.

Another article points out the devastation that ObamaCare has actually been to actual health care:

After What 214,000 Doctors Just Did, Obamacare Could Be In Shambles
“The ‘Affordable’ Care Act is anything but…”
James Beattie October 30, 2014 at 11:25am

More than 214,000 doctors will not participate in new plans under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

According to a survey conducted this year by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA), a trade association comprised of multi-physician medical practices, “as many as 214,524 American physicians will not be participating in any ACA exchange products.” Reasons abound as to why, but, “chief among them is the fact that exchange plans are more likely to offer significantly lower reimbursement rates than private market plans, confusion among consumers about the obligations associated with high deductibles, and fear that patients will stop paying premiums and providers will be unable to recover their losses”

This is a staggering number, considering the Kaiser Family Foundation reported there are 893,851 active physicians working in the United States.

It’s actually WORSE than doctors merely withdrawing from networks and refusing to provide treatment that would bankrupt them to provide as they lose money with every patient until they are out of business.  Doctors are getting out of medicine altogether as the Washington Times documented as early as 2013:

‘Obamacare’ health care reform ALREADY forcing doctors to close practices

We are facing a shortage of 45,000 primary care physicians, which is the choke point to all of the rest of health care.  Just for starters.  And just as conservatives like me were predicting all along as this wicked, demon-possessed monstrosity became law.

Someone has yet to explain to me how getting everybody a piece of paper that says they have “health insurance” but which means forcing hospitals to close and doctors to leave their health practices helps people get actual healthcare.  Doctors are not accepting these patients with their “ObamaCare.”  And as a result they are swamping the emergency rooms at a greater rate than ever before as the Washington Times documented –

Doctors say emergency room visits have increased since the advent of Obamacare, undercutting one of the key selling points of President Obama’s health care law, which was supposed to ensure a healthier population by pushing consumers to rely on their primary physicians rather than emergency trips to the hospital.

Three out of four ER doctors said they have seen a rise in the number of patients since January 2014, when Obamacare fully kicked in, according to a survey conducted by the American College of Emergency Physicians. More than a quarter of the doctors said they have seen a major surge, and 47 percent said the rise has been slight.

The doctors said they fear a spike in visits could overwhelm their resources: Seven out of 10 said their departments aren’t prepared for a significant increase in patient volume.

The biggest cause is a lack of primary care doctors to treat the increased number of patients with health care coverage, so the patients are turning to the emergency room instead — exactly what wasn’t supposed to happen.

– breaking Obama’s promises.  In just ONE dishonest speech for his dishonest ObamaCare takeover of our once-great health care system, Obama said:

And these stories were personal for me, because I remember my mother worrying about how she was going to deal with her finances when she got very sick.  I remember the fear Michelle and I felt when Sasha was a few months old and she got meningitis.  And we raced to the hospital and they had to give her a spinal tap.  And we didn’t know what was wrong and we were terrified, never felt so scared or helpless in all of my life.  But we were fortunate enough to have good health insurance.

And I remember looking around that emergency room and thinking — what about the parents who aren’t that lucky?  What about the parents who get hit with a bill of $20,000 or $30,000 and they’ve got no idea how to pay for it?  What about those parents whose kids have a chronic illness like asthma and have to keep on going back to the emergency room because they don’t have a regular doctor, and the bills never stop coming?  Who is going to stand up for them?

And in that same speech he again said:

All told, since I signed the Affordable Care Act into law, we have seen the slowest growth in health care costs on record.  (Applause.)

[…]

Right?  Now, the reason we do that is, when uninsured people who can afford to get health insurance don’t, and then they get sick or they get hit by a car, and they show up at the emergency room, who do you think pays for that?

AUDIENCE:  We do.

THE PRESIDENT:  You do, in the form of higher premiumsBecause the hospitals, they’ve got to get their money back somehow.  So if they’re treating somebody who doesn’t have health insurance, they jack up premiums for everybody who does have health insurance.  It’s like a hidden tax of $1,000 per family every year who has got health insurance.  So we’re saying that’s not fair.  If you can afford to get health insurance, don’t dump the costs on us.  The law also requires employers with more than 50 employees to either provide health insurance for your workers or pay a penalty.

So let me ask you Obama’s question with this twist: when ObamaCare forces millions of patients into the emergency rooms he falsely sold his ObamaCare as preventing from happening, WHO PAYS FOR IT???  Emergency room care is THE most cost-inefficient system there IS because it is designed to be for EMERGENCIES.  And when you have a surgeon who is trained to deal with traumatic amputations dealing with a kid’s runny nose, you are bankrupting the system.  You are forcing hospitals to close down or get rid of needed staff to stay in business.

And the ONLY people who have fought to keep people from having no other freaking option for health care but to go to the ermgency rooms that massively add to the cost burden of providing health care were REPUBLICANS who pointed out Obama’s lies.

What has ObamaCare done to hospitals?

Obamacare Forcing Rural Hospitals to Close
Sunday, 15 Mar 2015 07:39 PM
By Greg Richter

The Affordable Care act is having a devastating impact on already strapped rural hospitals, playing a role in many of them shutting their doors, The Washington Post reports.

Forty-eight rural hospitals have closed since 2010 and 283 are in danger, the Post quotes the National Rural Health Association as saying. Most of the shuttered hospitals are in the South.

Other factors are contributing to the problem, but Obamacare is cited as the main reason. The law reduced Medicare payments and how much hospitals are paid for uninsured patients.

The law assumed states would increase Medicaid to cover the gap, but many states did not.

Another factor caused by Obamacare: insurance plans with deductibles so high that people opt to skip some care they previously received. Fewer visits mean less revenue.

As goes ObamaCare, so goes the nation.  That is because health care is one-sixth of the U.S. economy.  And we are so economically weakened that you can’t collapse that one-sixth and not have the other five-sixths go into the toilet bowl with it.

Obama lied.  He sold you the lie that having some piece of paper that said you have health insurance means you have health care even though his vile system has forced doctors out of the networks, forced them to leave medicine altogether, forced hospitals to close down, forced hospitals to fire key medical staff to stay open.  He lied like a demon over and over and over again to sell you what he wanted to impose on you and damn the consequences of his lies.  But we live in the last days before the coming of the beast, and these days are marked by deception and an outright hatred of and contempt for the truth.  And so being right is actually a grave political liability these days.

Our economy is a sham.  Our undemployment rate is an outright lie.  Our unemployment rate is going down ONLY because of the dishonest way with which it is measured.  It does NOT count people who are not working; it ONLY counts people who are actively seeking jobs and using state and federal agencies and benefits.  Which is why we have the following state of affairs:

CHRIS WALLACE, FOX NEWS SUNDAY: We could continue this conversation and I’m sure we will, but let’s turn to the economy and some really disappointing numbers on the economy this week. Here they are. Only 126,000 jobs were added in March. That’s the weakest hiring in 15 months. Labor force participation dropped to 62.7 percent, matching the lowest since 1978. And the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta estimates first quarter growth at zero, zero percent, flat. George, what’s going on here?

GEORGE WILL, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: Well, for the second year in a row they’ve blamed poor quarterly growth on insufficient global warming, that is on winter, on an unusually cold winter. Let your mind go back to November last year. There was job creation of 321,000 jobs and the administration said this is a miraculous achievement and a harbinger of things to come. It wasn’t a harbinger and it wasn’t miraculous. During the Reagan recovery there were 23 months of job creation over 300,000. Reagan had a month of job creation of 1 million and this was at a time when there were 75 million fewer Americans. Now, never mind zero growth. We are now being told really that two percent growth may be the new normal. If so, that’s a disaster because every day, today, yesterday, tomorrow, every day between now and 2030, 10,000 more baby boomers become eligible for Social Security and Medicare. If we have two percent growth, the crisis of the welfare state, the crisis of the private sector being able to throw off the revenues, to pay the bills for the promises we’ve made to ourselves becomes impossible.

WALLACE: Just tell again that the labor force participation stat that you have, if it were what it was at the beginning of the Obama administration.

WILL: If the workforce participation rate today were as high as it was on the day Barack Obama was inaugurated, the unemployment rate in this country would be 9.7 percent, we wouldn’t be complaining about the bad recovery because we wouldn’t call it a recovery

The labor participation rate measures the percentage of working-age Americans with jobs.  And I have documented year after year the rapist Obama has been to actual JOB CREATION.

But again, those are simply facts.  And facts are the most useless things in modern America.  Because we have become a bad, toxic, wicked people who prefer lies to the truth and who will not accept the truth.

We don’t have anywhere NEAR enough Americans working to support the massive and increasing-in-size tsunami of people who don’t have jobs and frankly don’t particularly care that much that they don’t have jobs because they’re parasites who demand and who have been trained by Democrats to demand that OTHER people support them even as they have been trained to blame and hate the very people who are supporting them.

Our economy is a shell game.  We face debts that can’t even be compared to a mountain anymore, they are so massive and so high and steep and so staggering and so dangerous.

We hear our debt is $18 trillion now.  Notwithstanding that Barack Obama was a truly demon-possessed hypocrite and slandering liar when he viciously attacked George Bush when it was nine trillion –

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents – #43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.” — Barack Obama, 3 July 2008

– our actual debt is so far beyond $18 trillion it’s not even FUNNY.  Try this figure for size: $127 trillion (which is just unfunded liabilities and which doesn’t even bother to COUNT the $18 trillion):

The federal unfunded liabilities are catastrophic for future taxpayers and economic growth. At usdebtclock.org, federal unfunded liabilities are estimated at near $127 trillion, which is roughly $1.1 million per taxpayer and nearly double 2012’s total world output.

I submit that the actual figure is higher than that, northward of $222 trillion.  We are a broken nation with a broken financial system covering up its nakedness with flimsy paper that will blow away on a cold day when the wind is howling and leave us with nothing but poverty and devastation and rioting such as the world has never seen.

Even now, our interest payments on our massive debt are guaranteed to skyrocket and leave us crippled and unable to pay for anywhere NEAR the commitments we have made.  But it gets worse.

One day, soon, the United States’ status as the U.S. dollar being the Reserve Currency of planet earth will be terminated.  And we will be devastated overnight.  We can recklessly, wickedly borrow more and more and more money to finance the Democrat Party’s and Barack Obama’s socialism for only so long.  We can’t pay for it.  It’s insane that we keep doing it.  One day we will go to bed with all the talking heads saying everything will be okay and we will wake up to complete ruin.  As we speak, all the top economic nations below us – and above us, given the fact that China has under Obama topped the United States as the #1 economy are agitating to topple that status won as a result of World War II being yanked away.  One day, soon, it WILL be.

We are a morally collapsed nation that will soon economically collapse and we will then see the true wickedness and greed and bitterness and hate come out that I see already present in this nation that was once based on “In God We Trust” as “one nation, under God” but now exists to glorify and worship homosexual sodomy and the murder by abortion of more than sixty million of our own most innocent Americans in the Holocaust-dwarfing abortion mills of the Democrat Party.

56,125,262 human beings on all sides of the war, both civilian and military, perished in the bloodiest war in the history of the human race, World War II.  And under Obama and 100 percent because of the Democrat Party Holocaust machine America has murdered more of its own most innocent human beings than that godawful, vicious, vile war could.  And God is going to hold us to account for it.  You read Psalm 139 and you tell me I’m wrong.  Because your only logical option if you want to defend abortion is to stick your middle finger up at God and declare that you WELCOME His wrath on your head and on the heads of your children.  And it’s coming.

You read Romans chapter one and you tell me that the Barack Obama betrayal on marriage and the Democrat Party’s depraved homosexual SODOMY of the marriage that was instituted by GOD isn’t the trigger for God’s wrath against a sick society.  If you bother to READ God’s Word, your only logical option if you want to defend the perversion of homosexuality is to stick your middle finger up at God and declare that you WELCOME His wrath on your head and on the heads of your children.

But that collapse isn’t merely going to be economic.  We’re seeing that now, too.

Barack Obama has utterly failed to keep America safe from the threat of Islamic terrorism, even going to the insane extent of denying such a threat even EXISTS.

Now, as Obama’s spiritual mentor and former pastor for 23 years who infamously screamed “No, no, NO!  NOT God bless America!  God DAMN America!” once put it: “our chickens have come home to roost.”

We are FAR more vulnerable to jihadist terrorism than we have ever been thanks to Obama’s lies, thanks to his “JV Team” analogy that dismissed a clearly metastasizing threat to America, thanks to his “Osama bin Laden in dead and al Qaeda is on the run” lies.

I turn to yet another dismaying recent development: the shocking, catastrophic defeat that the United States is now suffering in Iraq and will almost certainly suffer soon in Afghanistan.  Only a couple of years ago, our nation’s leaders were claiming credit for “decimating” al Qaeda and saying that the terrorists were on the run.  Since 2010 there has been a 58% increase in the number of terror groups – and the number of jihadists have DOUBLED.  Al Qaeda is larger, stronger and controls more territory than at any time in history.  And an organization that is universally recognized as being even WORSE than al Qaeda – the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or ISIS – has now created the caliphate in the heart of the Middle East that Osama bin Laden dreamed of.  Back in 2005, US intelligence captured a letter from the top al Qaeda leadership that put the aims of al Qaeda into four stages: 1) Drive America out of Iraq; 2) create a caliphate; 3) use that as a base to attack the United States and other countries; 4) attack Israel.  And we have watched them succeed beyond all of the worst possible scenarios.  They’re coming right back at us and we’re now far too weary, weak and divided to fight them.

The FBI director’s terrifying warning that yeah, they ARE coming after us in terrifying numbers:

There may be as many as thousands of people inside the United States consuming online “poison” from ISIS alone, and, “I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there,” FBI director James Comey warned today, referring to one of the men who opened fire outside of an event in Texas earlier this week celebrating artists’ portrayals of the Prophet Mohammad.

“We have a very hard task” in trying to identify and stop anyone inspired to launch an attack inside the U.S. homeland, Comey told ABC News’ Pierre Thomas and a small group of reporters.

Such efforts have become particularly challenging because ISIS has reconfigured and redefined terrorist recruitment, according to Comey. In fact, while the FBI is trying to find that so-called needle in a haystack, “increasingly the needles are invisible to us,” he said.

As recently as two years ago, someone in the United States who wanted to consume “radical poisonous propaganda” would have to seek that out on the Internet, most likely on a jihadist web forum. So the FBI focused its investigative efforts on those jihadist web forums, Comey said.

But “that has changed dramatically, especially with [ISIS] and their use of social media,” where on phones in people’s pockets they ask Americans and other foreigners “to travel to the so-called caliphate to fight” but simultaneously say, “If you can’t travel, kill where you are,” according to Comey.

“It’s almost as if there is a devil sitting on the shoulder saying, ‘Kill, kill, kill, kill’ all day long,” he said. “[They are] recruiting and tasking at the same time. … In a way, the old paradigm between ‘inspired’ and ‘directed’ breaks down here.”

And with that distinction “no longer relevant,” is it all the more challenging for the FBI to determine whether someone seeking jihadist propaganda online or even promoting themselves is “a talker or a doer,” as Comey described it.

And their talk is “fundamentally transforming” into ACTION to kill Americans wherever they are.

The sober and despicable fact that our intelligent resources are no so inadequate that a jihadist preparing to launch a violent attack against America can now openly and brazenly boast online about his mission for Allah without our now inadequate system even KNOWING about it:

The official, who would speak about the continuing investigation only on condition of anonymity, said that although Mr. Simpson had long been under F.B.I. scrutiny, he had not appeared to be preparing for violence. “There are so many like him that you have to prioritize your investigations,” the official said.

The Secretary of Homeland Security’s sober warning:

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said America is dealing with a “new environment” in which a lone-wolf terrorist could “strike at any moment.”

Johnson said, “We’re very definitely in a new environment, because of ISIS’s effective use of social media, the Internet, which has the ability to reach into the homeland and possibly inspire others.”

“Because of the use of the Internet, we could have little or no notice in advance of an independent actor attempting to strike.”

He added, “We’re very definitely in a new phase in the global terrorist threat where the so-called lone wolf could strike at any moment. Which is why the FBI, in my judgment, has done an excellent job of getting to those who are attempting to travel to Syria, who commit overt facts in furtherance of material support to terrorism. It is a new environment, but we are not discouraging  Americans from doing the things that they do on a daily basis in our society.”

This is a pretense and a lie.  We’ve had the Internet for quite a long time now, ever since another Democrat liar named Al Gore claimed he’d invented the damn thing about 20 years ago.  This isn’t because of the internet any more than our godawful economy is the result of “inadequate global warming” a.k.a. winter; this is the result of an epic fail of a president who has placed FAR more resources into climate change than he has on the actual war while he literally claimed he’d WON the war that he claimed didn’t even exist in the first place.

The Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security points out that under Obama terrorism has grown viral:

Top U.S. officials and lawmakers on Sunday intensified concerns about the growing threat of jihad-inspired terror attacks against the United States, after last week’s attempt in Texas and the dire FBI warning that followed.

“I think there’s been an uptick in the stream of threats out there,” Texas GOP Rep. Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, told “Fox News Sunday.” “We’re seeing these directives on almost a daily basis. It’s very concerning. Terrorism has gone viral.”

Mind you, we’re not even prepared to handle actual viruses anymore as this administration continues to fail its most basic duty to its people.

Do you know what I’ve noticed?  I’ve watched snippets of the Islamic State’s recruiting videos as they’ve been presented on the news.  And I’ve noticed a striking similarity to the violent video games that dominate our culture.  The graininess, the colors, watching these Islamic State videos is like playing a video game.  They’re beaming it into the heads of American kids who otherwise stand for nothing: you can actually LIVE your video game fantasies!  Just picture yourself standing on a tank firing the machine gun, oh yes, guns a’blazing in a hail of glory.  And they don’t give a flying damn if you kill for Allah or to live out your sick, twisted and violent video game fantasies.  They just want blood.

I’ve written about that: liberalism and secular humanism has produced a toxic, nihilistic generation that is characterized by cynicism, pessimism and a profound dislike of reality.  I wrote a nice two-part article that after you read you won’t be one bit surprised at the above popularity of American jihadism.

I’ve pointed out in past articles that our “strategy” for Islam is based on a lie that itself is based on a terrifying reality that if you follow the Qur’an and the actual teachings and life of Muhammad, YOU WILL BE A MURDEROUS TERRORIST just like Muhammad was.  I’ve also pointed out that there’s another terrifying reason why Democrats have been so determined to shelter these violent jihadists: that Democrats and Muslim terrorists alike ultimately want the same thing: a Government-as-God that has all power to decide/dictate who wins and who loses, who pays and who gets the wealth redistributed to them, who lives and who dies, who is good and who is evil.  And Democrats are actually the kind of colossal moral idiots who foolishly believe they can reason with these people, just as Obama is trying to foolishly and wickedly do with Iran over its nuclear program.

And all Obama has been able to do is blame Christianity.  After all, didn’t Christians do something like a thousand years ago?  So why mention what Muslims did last night?  Obama is a true moral coward who is only capable of pumping out moral equivocation to actually JUSTIFY jihadism for the wrongs we did to them notwithstanding the whole thousand-years-ago thing.

I have pointed out that the secular humanism of Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat Party ultimately stand for NOTHING.  They have no transcendent moral values and no transcendent beliefs worth fighting and dying for.  They will negotiate and compromise and surrender because that’s all they have and all they ever WILL have.

And we’re seeing right now that the only people liberals WILL fight are their fellow Americans as they strive to incite every possible issue into a new reason to riot, to undermine America, to tear this nation apart on the basis of race, of gender, of sexual preference, of income class, of you name it, in their search for a political coalition that they can exploit toward more political power.

We’re going to collapse because God isn’t God if we DON’T collapse.  We’re going to collapse because our vote for Obama, our vote for homosexual marriage, our vote for the murder of sixty million innocent babies, was a VOTE to collapse.  We’re going to collapse because America isn’t IN Bible prophecy and either won’t exist or won’t be relevant in any way, shape or form in the last days.  Because unlike any other nation, we once uniquely made a covenant with God and we broke that covenant and God is going to hold us to account for our betrayal.  We’re going to collapse because the beast is coming.

But mark my words: we are GOING to collapse.  And it will be entirely from within because it was from within and the depravity within our own hearts that we destroyed ourselves.

 

Obama Vs. Jesus And Which Messiah Is Turning Out To Be Right?

May 7, 2015

Jesus replied, ‘Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many.  And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.  Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.  “When these things begin to happen, watch out! You will be handed over to the local councils and beaten in the synagogues. You will stand trial before governors and kings because you are My followers. But this will be your opportunity to tell them about Me.'”  — Mark 13:5-9

In this statement, Jesus predicted several things:  He said 1) “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in My name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’  They will deceive many.”  2) You will hear of wars and rumors of wars…”  3) Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.  4) There will be natural disasters and famines like we’ve never seen.  5)  And Christians will be handed over for official persecution by governments and by caliphates.

Jesus promised us that in the last days, many would come claiming to be Messiah.  How many of these would be elected president of the United States???

The actual historical evidence:

Quoting David Axelrod, Senior Advisor to Obama, the man who marketed Obama to the world, David Axelrod: “He is the living, breathing apotheosis of the American melting pot,” enthused David Axelrod, who privately coined a nickname for his boss: “Black Jesus.”

And:

Axelrod, as we know, isn’t alone. According to Klein, Micah Tillman, lecturer in philosophy at the Catholic University of America, called Obama “the Platonic philosopher king we’ve been looking for the past 2,400 years.” And no less an authority than Oprah has called him “The One.”

And:

“It means that this is a whole new world. I think…I’ve been saying this before. You can divide history. BB Before Barack. AB After Barack.” — Spike Lee

And:

“You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”

“Brothers and sisters,” Farrakhan said, “Barack Obama to me, is a herald of the Messiah. Barack Obama is like the trumpet that alerts you something new, something better is on the way.”

Farrakhan points out that the man Nation of Islam followers refer to as “the Saviour,” Fard Muhammad, had a black father and a white mother, just as Obama did.

“A black man with a white mother became a saviour to us,” he said. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.”  — Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, speaking on ‘Nation of Islam Saviours’ Day’, February 24, 2008

And:

“Dismiss it all you like, but I’ve heard from far too many enormously smart, wise, spiritually attuned people who’ve been intuitively blown away by Obama’s presence – not speeches, not policies, but sheer presence – to say it’s just a clever marketing ploy, a slick gambit carefully orchestrated by hotshot campaign organizers who, once Obama gets into office, will suddenly turn from perky optimists to vile soul-sucking lobbyist whores, with Obama as their suddenly evil, cackling overlord.

Here’s where it gets gooey. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.

The unusual thing is, true Lightworkers almost never appear on such a brutal, spiritually demeaning stage as national politics. This is why Obama is so rare. And this why he is so often compared to Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., to those leaders in our culture whose stirring vibrations still resonate throughout our short history.” — Mark Morford, SF Gate columnist, June 6, 2008

And:

Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”

Thomas, appearing on Hardball with Chris Matthews, was reacting to a preceding monologue in which Matthews praised Obama’s speech: “I think the President’s speech yesterday was the reason we Americans elected him. It was grand. It was positive. Hopeful…But what I liked about the President’s speech in Cairo was that it showed a complete humility…The question now is whether the President we elected and spoke for us so grandly yesterday can carry out the great vision he gave us and to the world.”

The mainstream media, Associated Press, Reuters, etc., REPEATEDLY and BRAZENLY deliberately continued this fabrication, depicting Obama with halo after halo after halo.  Have other candidates for president played this messianic trick?  Of course.  BUT NEVER LIKE THIS.  NEVER TO THIS DEGREE.

Did Obama manifest himself in such a blatantly messianic manner?  You betcha he did:

The journey will be difficult. The road will be long. I face this challenge with profound humility, and knowledge of my own limitations. But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment – this was the time – when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.

I still remember the temple that the Democrat Party built to welcome its god.  I still remember the Grecian columns in which this god walked among mortal man, I still recall the sick feeling as I watched the worshiping crowds adore him, praise him:

I could actually go on.  But I believe I’ve made my case.  Jesus was right.  The Obama campaign played Obama as “the One,” as “the messiah,” as “Black Jesus,” as “sort of God, standing above the country, above the world.”

Now, even liberals are acknowledging that Barack Obama was the same, lying, dishonest political weasel that we’ve seen all to often.  But that’s another story.

If you’re a Democrat, you already stand revealed as a proven Antichrist worshiper and it is only a matter of time when you fall in love with a new political god and worship him and take his mark on your right hand or on your forehead according to the prophetic description of how our political system will end in Revelation 13:16.   I simply challenge you and defy you, Democrat, to show me anything even CLOSE to this coming from the Republican Party or any of it’s candidates.  You show me this crap coming from Bush or McCain or Romney.  You show me this or this or this.

You Democrats are literally TEN TIMES MORE MURDEROUS than Adolf Hitler or the Nazis.  They murdered six million Jews in their death camps; YOU HAVE MURDERED SIXTY MILLION INNOCENT HUMAN BEINGS IN YOURS.  And the day is coming when you will pay for your wickedness when God’s wrath washes over you as no tsunami wave as ever washed over anyone and carries you screaming into the hell you so richly deserve for your murder and your spirit of depraved perversion and your fanatic and criminal abuse of genuine justice.

Ben Carson compared America today to the rise of the Nazis in the 1930s.  He’s been excoriated by the leftist media for that: they demand he retract his words so they can attack him for taking back what he said as much as they had attacked him for saying it in the first place.  Despite the obvious fact that truer words have never been spoken.

Jesus was right as He described the last days and how they would come about as false messiahs demagogued their way to power and paved the way for the ultimate Antichrist who would lead the world to literal hell on earth during a seven-year period in which God gave a wicked people over to the demonic leader they truly deserved.

And we have seen The Rise, as Democrats proclaimed, “There is no God but Government, and Obama is Its Prophet!”

St. Paul described “the descent of man” into depravity as they first replaced God with godless evolution, professed themselves as wise when they were in reality becoming utter fools, and ultimately would become so toxic and so vile that they would do something that no culture on earth had ever done and exalt the perversion of homosexual sodomy as “marriage”:

Unbelief and Its Consequences

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.

24Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

Romans 1:18-31

Jesus said that 2) we would hear more and more and more about wars and rumors of wars.

I was reading the Los Angeles Times this morning (Thursday, May 7, 2015) and here were the titles of the articles I saw as I looked through the main page:

Page A1: “Exercises signal NATO resolve against Russia”

Page A3: “Drug violence escalates: As elections approach, an army helicopter is shot down and a new cartel emerges”

Page A4: “4 to hang in Afghan mob killing: Eight are sentenced to prison in the beating and burning death of a woman”

Page A6: “Syrian president is ‘not worried’ despite setbacks” with the opening paragraph reading: “Syrian president Bashar Assad said Wednesday that he was “not worried” about the battlefield setbacks and exhorted supporters to avoid succumbing to “frustration” as the Syrian conflict rages on without an end in sight.”

Page A6: “Saudi-led airstrikes kill scores in Yemen”

Page A8 “NATO not taking threats lightly”

Page A9: “Saber-rattling signals NATO resolve.”

Page A9 Germany: “4 arrested in raids seeking extremists”

Page A9 Nigeria” Niger expels 3,000 refugees” with the first paragraph reading, “More than 3,000 fishermen and other refugees fleeing Boko Haram militants were expelled from neighboring Niger…”

Page A11: “Shooter likely more of a lone wolf” (in spite of the claim by Islamic State) regarding the terrorist attack on a free-speech event in Texas.

Of that last story, the truth is as amazing as it is terrifying.  The New York Times reports the following:

The onslaught of recruitment propaganda has multiplied the number of online enthusiasts for the Islamic State in the United States, giving counterterrorism investigators the difficult task of deciding which are simply fantasizing in public and which might be planning violence.

“The ISIS guys are talking to these wannabes on Twitter all day long,” a senior law enforcement official said. “It’s like the devil is sitting on their shoulder saying, ‘Come on, they’re insulting the prophet, what are you going to do about it?’ ”

The official, who would speak about the continuing investigation only on condition of anonymity, said that although Mr. Simpson had long been under F.B.I. scrutiny, he had not appeared to be preparing for violence. “There are so many like him that you have to prioritize your investigations,” the official said.

The brief statement from the Islamic State did not claim that it had ordered the Texas attack, though it called the gunmen, Mr. Simpson, 30, and Nadir Hamid Soofi, 34, “two soldiers from the soldiers of the caliphate.”

The statement expressed hope that the men, who had been living in Phoenix, would be granted “the highest rank of paradise” and threatened that future action against the perceived enemies of Islam would be “worse and more bitter,” according to a translation by the Site Intelligence Group, which tracks extremist statements.

Those words, “There are so many like him” ought to chill your blood.  Because of Obama’s monumental failure to do anything other than be a lying, slandering, deceiving demagogue rather than an actual leader, our system to deal with violence and terrorism and war is fundamentally and profoundly breaking down.  The New York Times describes “Mr. Simpson, a convert to Islam with a long history of extremism.”  The man had been tracked by authorities for years.  But our liberal-dominated courts have made the system powerless to stop the avalanche of these murderers.  The FBI is overwhelmed.

What did our imposter messiah say in front of the FACT that last year was THE deadliest year for terrorism EVER?

“I mean, the truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to be — if you had to choose any moment to be born in human history, not knowing what your position was going to be, who you were going to be, you’d choose this time. The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.” – Barack Hussein Obama

Militant Islam is rising.  It is inevitable.  And it is inevitable because the world and its leaders today are dominated by the abject moral cowardice of Barack Hussein Obama to confront reality when false narratives sound so much better to our itching years.  Obama has proven utterly irrelevant to the world as Islamic State was born and grew powerful and rose to burn people alive right in front of our faces all because of his abject failed policies and his non-stop blathering uselessness.

If you’re pro-Christian, you can buy a Christian organ, you know, like a liver or heart or kidney of a Christian murder victim as Islamic State uses every means to finance their metastic spread.

It took Obama months beyond laughable to even so much as ACKNOWLEDGE that Christians were victims of these monsters as he enables them day after day, week after week, month after month.

Unmentioned are many other recent stories like this one about China creating artificial island after artificial island as they grab territory that has never been theirs (you know, just like Russia is defiantly doing).  The US military is watching helplessly while it goes from “late” to “too late” to stop or deal with:

These missions have taken on new urgency as the U.S. military keeps a closer eye on China’s increasingly assertive territorial claims, including an unprecedented island-building campaign in the nearby South China Sea.

On any given day, U.S. aircraft bristling with cameras, sensors and advanced electronics crisscross the region, hunting submarines, surface ships and aircraft — and charting progress on massive landfills that have suddenly appeared from submerged reefs and shoals.

The fear is that these islands will provide bases for China to restrict air traffic or threaten vital shipping lanes.

The Navy’s patrol fleet has grown from 12 to 16 aircraft in the last three years and includes state-of-the-art P-8 Poseidons, militarized versions of Boeing 737s that are being deployed first to the Pacific.

“We go out, we watch, we look and we listen, to all things going on. And we do it routinely,” says Navy Capt. Mike Parker, who commands the patrol fleet. Parker said U.S. aircraft remain in international airspace throughout their missions.

He spoke to a USA TODAY reporter invited on a training mission aboard Pelican One.

U.S. officials have watched with alarm since China began its landfill operations in the South China Sea last year, creating artificial islands with astonishing speed.

Commercial satellite images show extensive landfill and construction on at least seven previously submerged reefs or atolls in the Spratly Islands group, located west of the Philippines.

Some of the new islands include runways that can accommodate China’s biggest military aircraft, along with port facilities and dozens of multistory buildings, according to the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, a research project sponsored by the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

“China is creating a ‘Great Wall of Sand’ with dredges and bulldozers,” Adm. Harry Harris, commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, warned in a speech in Australia on April 1. Harris said that raises “serious questions about Chinese intentions.”

We can watch Obama’s epic fail as a leader in slow, agonizing motion as Obama allows Iran to seize U.S.-flagged ships in what is clearly an act of war, as Iran violates the citizenship of Americans and arrests them one after another on trumped-up charges, as Iran spreads terror all over the world, as Iran having nearly achieved complete hegemony in the Middle East is now expanding to Latin America.  as Iran calls for death to America.  While Obama says, “We trust you!  We are willing to compromise and cooperate and negotiate with every dictator and murderer and thug and anyone who isn’t a Republican! I will GIVE you nuclear weapons!  Only PLEASE wait until I’m out of office!”

All Iran needs is time to build or buy ballistic missile technology to launch their nuclear warheads that even according to Obama they are 2-3 months away from and could clearly easily have at any moment they want them.  Obama knew that truth for YEARS but lied and lied and lied to the American people as he rabidly pursued a deal with THE most untrustworthy regime on planet earth.

It has been a known, documented fact for at least a YEAR that Iran has been pursuing the ballistic missile technology necessary and ONLY necessary to launch their soon-to-be nuclear warheads.  But what they hey?

Iran is showing us in color their intention as they wargame their nuclear attack against Israel.

The Word of God assured us more than 2,600 years ago that one day, in the last days, Russian and Iran would lead a confederacy of nations that are coincidentally today ALL Islamic nutjob states in a war of extermination against the state of Israel.  And that the world would sit idly by and act just like Obama is doing now and do NOTHING but blather useless words according to Ezekiel 38:13.

The world will one day soon be bathed in blood as we see wars ignite the likes the human race has never seen.  And it is all gathering right now.

At a point in time when population experts pegged the total world population at 183 million, St. John in the Book of Revelation prophesied the very region that could pull off such an army – “the kings of the east” – sending a demonic army of 200 million men across what has throughout history been the historically impassable Euphrates River toward their destiny of Armageddon.

Jesus said 3) “Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”

Well, I just wrote about that.  The word Jesus uses translated as “nation” is “ethnos.”  “Nation will rise against nation” is more accurately, “Ethnic group will rise against ethnic group.”  Or Race will rise against race.

And we’re seeing hot, flaming race rising against race all over America.  And the polls document the fact that Americans overwhelmingly – to the tune of 96 percent – believe it will get worse and that it will happen in their own cities and towns.

Jesus declared 4) “There will be earthquakes in many parts of the world, as well as famines. But this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.”

Natural disasters, anyone?  We have them in abundance like we have never before seen.  We have a crippling historic drought in my state of California that is growing more and more terrible while we have floods elsewhere to fulfill what God declared would happen to a nation that abandoned Him: “I kept the rain from falling when your crops needed it the most. I sent rain on one town but withheld it from another. Rain fell on one field, while another field withered away” (Amos 4:7).  Earthquakes?  The world is watching Nepal reel from the recent aftermath of one as we speak, with thousands dead.

I know how godless man reasons, because the Bible tells me: “They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation” (2 Peter 3:4).  But I’ve been pointing out that these same godless people ignorantly declare the truth of God’s Word everyday as they exploit every phenomena as “global warming” or “climate change” when it is just one more part of what our LORD told us would happen as we reached the end of days before divine judgment plunged the world into living hell.

And Jesus promised believers 5) “watch out! You will be handed over to the local councils and beaten in the synagogues. You will stand trial before governors and kings because you are My followers.”  And we are watching it happen all over the world as Islamic State leads planet earth in the slaughter of Christians, as more Christians have been martyred these last few years than in all of history combined, as the Obama system of “justice” persecutes and punishes and terrorizes Christians for taking a stand against the sodomy of marriage and says that as Christian bakers they won’t bake cakes for gay weddings and as Christian wedding photographers they won’t depict the perversion of God-ordained marriage and as Christian pizza restaurateurs they won’t allow their property be used to celebrate homosexual perversion of marriage that has always throughout all of history been the union of one man and one woman.

The beast is coming.  War like we have never even had nightmares of before is coming.  And we’re watching it metastasize right now under Obama.

The mystery of lawlessness” is that as all of these horrors engulf us there will be nothing the righteous can do about it to stop it.  We stand dismayed but the Bible said these “perilous times” were coming.  We were foretold that “Many will be purified, cleansed, and refined by these trials. But the wicked will continue in their wickedness, and none of them will understand. Only those who are wise will know what it means” (Daniel 12:10).

 

Foreign Policy Fiasco And Armageddon: Our Liar-In-Chief Versus Something Called ‘Reality’

April 17, 2015

Ah, truth.  I miss the fragrant aroma of it far more than the residents of Massachusetts miss insufficient global warming.

But, alas, my spring will not come.  I have been in the winter of lies for more than six years with two more years to go (if I’m lucky and another leftist liar doesn’t take the place of the one we’ve got).

Just a couple of quick words from our sponsoring demon-possessed liar:

“Thanks to sacrifice and service of our brave men and women in uniform, the war in Iraq is over, the war in Afghanistan is winding down, al Qaeda has been decimated, Osama bin Laden is dead.” — Barack Hussein Obama, November 1, 2012, in one of at least thirty-two separate instances in which he declared al Qaeda defeated JUST SINCE al Qaeda’s successful attack against US soil in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 as he treasonously lied his way to re-election.

Obama responded: “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.” (For the nonsports fan, JV stands for junior varsity, and it usually means a high school or college’s secondary team.) — Barack Hussein Obama, January 7, 2014, in trivializing the threat of Islamic State which only four days earlier had seized the Iraqi city of Fallujah and which has since Obama’s pathologically stupid assessment has gone on to establish the largest terrorist caliphate in the entire history of planet earth.

“But I want the American people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil. This counter-terrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out ISIL wherever they exist using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground. This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years.” — Barack Hussein Obama, speaking as a pathologically dishonest gibbering idiot on September 10, 2014

Afghanistan is winding down?  Not if the actual reality such as the fact that Obama was forced to keep the war going to prevent the fiasco that occurred because of his foolish policy in Iraq from happening has anything to do with your view.  If Obama has prevented total failure in Afghanistan, it was only by reversing his policy of withdrawing our troops (see also here) that everyone including yours truly predicted would end in failure if implemented.  The moment Obama gets his way and cuts and runs as he stated he was going to do, Afghanistan will fall to the terrorists.  And in fact we can see today that it will fall to Islamic State.  And what about Iraq?  Iraq is either going to either collapse as a nation-state because Obama retreated from it AFTER we’d won that war with much blood and treasure or it is going to become an Iranian puppet state – a scenario that is actually even worse than if Iraq becomes part of the caliphate of Islamic State according to most experts.  And Obama is literally ENCOURAGING Iran to take over Iraq to prevent the public relations disaster of his “JV team” Islamic State taking over.  Read the New York Times article titled, “U.S. and Iran Both Attack ISIS, but Try Not to Look Like Allies” if you don’t believe me.  Obama is giving Iran Iraq in order to not have to send US ground fighters back into the Iraq that he pissed away by refusing to keep US troops there as his generals begged him to do.  It is simply STUNNING how willing Obama is to implode U.S. national security for decades to come in order to narcissistically save face as his failed foreign policy implodes all around him.  Obama can lie all he want to about some bogus “status of forces agreement” that prevented him from keeping troops in Iraq and preserving the gains that Bush won when he won the war in Iraq (see here for Obama’s proclamation of victory and see here for the terrorists’ admission), but again reality matters and it is reality that Obama demanded we lose the war and pull our troops out of Iraq as he took office in 2009.  That is just one more FACT that contradicts Obama’s ocean of lies.  Again and again and again, Obama has been a liar without shame, without honor, without virtue, without integrity, without decency of any kind.  There has never been a liar like him in the history of the world.

“We are defeated, don’t send any more foreign fighters,” our enemies in Iraq lamented as Bush kicked their ass with his surge that Obama had condemned because he is a fool without understanding.  Obama has brought defeat out of every victory that we had and he has created defeat where we were completely secure before he came to office.

Now consider actual freaking reality in the present moment (don’t bother reading any further, Democrat, for you are as immune from “truth” as a cockroach is immune to “philosophy”):

Al Qaeda captures major airport, seaport and oil terminal in southern Yemen
Published April 16, 2015
·Associated Press

SANAA, Yemen –  Al Qaeda seized control of a major airport, a sea port and an oil terminal in southern Yemen on Thursday, consolidating its hold on the country’s largest province amid wider chaos pitting Shiite rebels against forces loyal to the exiled president and a Saudi-led air campaign.

Military officials and residents said Al Qaeda fighters clashed briefly with members of one of Yemen’s largest brigades outside Mukalla, a city the militants overran earlier this month and where they freed prison inmates. The militants then seized control of the Riyan airport and moved to secure their hold on the city’s main sea port, which is also an oil terminal.

The security officials, speaking from Sanaa on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the press, said the leaders of the brigade in charge of protecting the entire area fled.

The latest advance marks a major gain for Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, as the Yemeni affiliate is known, which has been linked to several failed attacks on the U.S. and is widely seen as the global network’s most dangerous franchise. The group claimed responsibility for the attack on a French satirical magazine earlier this year.

The group has exploited the chaos in Yemen, where Shiite rebels, along with allied military units loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, captured the capital in September and have been advancing despite a three-week Saudi-led air campaign.

The rebels are staunch opponents of Al Qaeda but are currently locked in fierce battles with forces loyal to Yemen’s internationally recognized President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who fled to Saudi Arabia last month.

The southeastern city of Mukalla is the capital of Yemen’s largest province, Hadramawt, where Al Qaeda has long maintained a presence despite U.S. drone strikes and Yemeni counterterrorism operations.

Nasser Baqazouz, an activist in the city, said the troops guarding the airport put up little resistance.

“They are consolidating their hold of the city and will paralyze the whole coast of Hadramawt,” he said.

What does Obama’s “model of success” look like?

It looks like utter despair.  At least, that’s the term the New York Times uses as it describes “despair on full display” amid the ruins:

Yemen’s Despair on Full Display in ‘Ruined’ City
By FATHI BIN-LAZRQ and KAREEM FAHIMAPRIL 10, 2015

ADEN, Yemen — Rooftop snipers have emptied the streets of this dusty seaside city and swelled its hospitals and morgues.

Weeks of fighting between armed groups have left nearly 200 people dead and the city starved of water, fuel and electricity. Hospitals struggle to obtain anesthetic and dressings. Barefoot, nervous teenagers with matted hair and guns mind checkpoints on the treacherous roads. Gun battles sweep across the city while residents lie low and worry that there is worse suffering to come.

“The war of hunger has not started — yet,” said Ali Bamatraf, a grocer with dwindling stocks, standing among empty food boxes that would not soon be replaced.

As war engulfs Yemen, no place in the beleaguered country has suffered as severely as Aden, a southern port city captive to ferocious street fighting for the better part of a harrowing month. Foreign navies patrol its waters and warplanes circle above, blockading a city that is steadily crumbling under reckless fire from tanks and heavy guns.

Obama lied and lied and lied.  MILLIONS have died.

And it’s easy to document that Obama was lying when he said that Yemen was in any way, shape or form a model for anything but the abject disgrace and failure of Obama’s foreign policy.  Because I can go back to 2011 and cite that Yemen was ALREADY “descending into despair.”

Barack Obama is the most documented liar in the entire history of planet earth, bar none.  No one in the history of this wicked planet has ever come CLOSE to the number of lies Obama has told on the number of issues he’s lied about, times the number of times he’s lied about them, times the millions of people who watched his lips move as he lied.

Barack Hussein Obama is now helping the Ayatollah give his insanely rabid Islamic Terror State of Iran nuclear weapons.  And his lies come straight from the lips of Satan.  And anybody who believes this lying fool is nothing more than a lying fool him/herself.  Obama is boasting of some framework agreement when his negotiating partner is publicly categorically stating that no such framework existsThere IS no agreement, even in principle.

Now we’re watching as Obama moves the goalposts of his own fictional “framework” when he himself suggests through “creative negotiations” abandoning his own previously non-negotiable positions – such as sanctions NOT being lifted until Iran has demonstrated full compliance through inspections – and is caving by suggesting Iran now be given full relief from sanctions immediately.  Which was absolutely unacceptable even according to Obama’s previous statements.  I take you to Obama’s White House just one WEEK ago when they assured us, “It has never been our position that all of the sanctions against Iran should be removed from Day One.”  Which we now know is a lie.

Obama, the demon-possessed, slandering liar that he is, viciously ripped John McCain and Republicans for not unconditionally believing his and John Kerry’s lies:

“When I hear some, like Senator McCain recently, suggest that our Secretary of State John Kerry – who served in the United States Senate, a Vietnam veteran, who’s provided exemplary service to this nation – is somehow less trustworthy in the interpretation of what’s in a political agreement than the supreme leader of Iran, that’s an indication of the degree to which partisanship has crossed all boundaries.”

The thing is, we NOW know that John McCain was RIGHT and the John Kerry and Barack Obama actually ARE less trustworthy than the Ayatollah.  Because whatever the hell the real deal is, because the deal was what the Ayatollah said it was, and NOT what Kerry and Obama falsely claimed.  The Ayatollah was telling the truth while Obama and Kerry were lying like hell.

We are watching the spirit of deceit that drools from the DEMOnic-bureauCRAT Party.  Just consider the example of Harry Reid, who is literally proud of himself for wickedly slandering Mitt Romney about paying taxes when it is now a documented fact that he was lying without shame, without honor, without decency, without integrity, without virtue of any kind.  All he cares about is that his slander worked.  And every Democrat urinates on the truth every day of their lives until it is their turn to burn in hell.

Obama’s future “model of success” with Iran’s nuclear capability will be no more honest and no more based on anything approaching reality than his “model of success” turned out to be in Yemen and Somalia.

Saudi Arabia and the wealthier Sunni Arab states are all but categorically stating that they will develop their own nuclear weapons if Obama pushes his insane nuclear deal with Iran to completion.  And in response Obama is about to promise a “nuclear umbrella” that will force America and risk the lives of every single American in nuclear holocaust in order to get his beloved legacy.  Tell me that isn’t the work of a demon-possessed fool above all demon-possessed fools.

The Antichrist is coming soon, the beast of Revelation.  Obama has guaranteed what God foretold beginning 2,500 years ago through the prophet Daniel.  The Antichrist will be an even greater liar than Obama, “a master of intrigue,” “understanding dark sentences” (Daniel 8:23).  He will have the ability to so tangle up the truth in knots that no one save God’s elect will possibly be able to know the truth from his skilled lies.  But ultimately – as great a liar as the Antichrist will surely be – it will not be the talent of the liar but the pathological wickedness and dishonesty of the people that he lies to, which shall make the Great Deception possible.  We’re witnessing the climate of deception right now, as the Party of the Mass-Murder of Sixty Million Babies according to Psalm 139 and the Party of the Wrath of God for the worship of homosexuality according to Romans 1:18-31 and the Party of godless Marxist socialism that has declared war on God and on religion and on faith is actually claiming it holds the moral high ground as it sinks the human race to its lowest and ugliest depths in the history of the world.  Obama ran as a candidate who opposed same-sex marriage in order to deceive his way to the presidency, but as in all other things he brazenly lied like the pathologically demon-possessed liar that he is.  Barack Obama along with every single Democrat voter is personally responsible for the murder of TEN babies for every single Jew that Hitler murdered – and Obama and Democrats have murdered babies with the same lie that Hitler murdered Jews with, by wickedly denying their very humanity.

As brazen of a liar as Obama is and has been throughout the stench of his cancerous presidency, the Antichrist will be an even more brazen liar.  And the world will believe him and worship him.

The Bible is clear: the coming Tribulation – the full wrath of God on earth such has the world has never seen it – will begin when Israel is forced to sign a seven-year covenant with the Antichrist according to Daniel 9:27.  By abandoning Israel as Obama has done as no U.S. president has NEVER done, by emboldening and enabling Israel’s deadliest enemy, Obama has necessitated this coming day.

The Bible declared that in the last days, Iran and Russia would lead a host of nations that today are all Islamic states against Israel.  And that coalition has been secured in our day as Obama literally FACILIATED Russia arming Iran with missiles that will make a strike against Iran’s nuclear sites impossible.  Russia says that it is because of Obama’s “successful” deal with Iran that he could waive the sanctions that Bush put in place against Iran in 2008 and start selling the craziest nation on earth to the teeth.

History will record that Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton and the Democrat Party are responsible for the Gog-Magog War against Israel prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39.  These are the players who played America into Armageddon.  Hillary Rodham Clinton and her “reset” with vicious predatory bear Russia; Barack Hussein Obama and his nuclear appeasement with Iran: they are the spirit the Bible described in Jeremiah 6:14, “They offer superficial treatments for my people’s mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace.”  And the most deceived generation in the entire history of the world was fool enough to believe these liars.

History will record that World War III began the same exact way that World War II began: with the leader of the Western world revealing that he did not have the stomach to stand up to evil, emboldening evil to rise and rise and rise like yeast while he did nothing.

I do not doubt for one second that ultimately Barack Hussein Obama will be waving some piece of paper claiming that we have “peace in our time!” Just realize it’s a trick that has been played before by the same sort of foolishness and moral idiocy that Obama clearly embodies.

Armageddon is coming.  If Bush was wrong in taking on wars, Obama has been far, FAR more wrong for refusing to stand up to evil as it arises just as Neville Chamberlain became the worst fool of the 20th century for refusing to stand up to evil when he had his chance.  We know that Hitler was prepared to stop if the Allies had just shown a shred of backbone and taken a stand; instead, they failed to do so so many times that by the time they finally did take a stand, Hitler no longer believed they would ever show any courage.  And World War II was the result.  And in this present day, our enemies, be they al Qaeda, Islamic State, Russia, Iran, or China, now believe that the United States is a weak, corrupt, dishonest nation that will not stand up to them, just as our former allies know that we are a weak, corrupt, dishonest nation that will not stand up for them.  War that becomes worse and worse and uglier and uglier – “war and rumors of wars”, as Jesus put it – is inevitable because of the cancer of this presidency.

Anybody who wants to actually argue that Obama has been successful against terrorism is a fool of such giant proportions that he or she simply has a demon.  We have witnessed a massive explosion in the number of terrorists since Obama, the number of terrorist organizations since Obama, the level of training and funding and the sheer amount of territory dominated, since Obama took office.  He has failed wildly.  But as spectacularly as he has failed, he lies and claims his failures are “models of success.”  Because Satan completely owns this disgraceful fool.  And because we are truly in the very last days before the beast.

Be warned: our Liar-in-Chief’s wicked lies will soon devour the whole world.  And Democrats will cheer as they take the mark of the beast – which is the mark of global socialism as government takes total control over the economy just as Democrats desire – and burn in hell forever and ever.

Proof That Nuke Deal With Iran So Important To Malignant Narcissist-in-Chief That He Is Willing To Kill Every Single American In Coming Apocalypse

April 8, 2015

The Los Angeles Times – a major liberal newspaper of record – offered the following page one news story about Obama’s nuke deal and about how EVERY SINGLE MIDDLE EASTERN COUNTRY FROM ISRAEL TO SAUDI ARABIA, KUWAIT, BAHRAIN, QATAR, U.A.E. and OMAN, ETC. IS DEEPLY OPPOSED TO IT.

And it details the fact that Saudi Arabia among the other Middle Eastern Sunni countries are deeply aware that Obama essentially guarantees them the right to complete legally develop nuclear weapons merely by waiting ten years.  And that even IF Iran doesn’t cheat (fat chance given that they have cheated in EVERY deal they have ever made with us) they can obtain nukes under the deal merely by waiting ten years.  And how would we negotiate then when we gave them the right to build nukes ten years from now?

And it details the shenanigans that Obama and his treasonous White House is playing not only with Iran but with EVERYONE to shove this deal down our collectivists throats.  Those shenanigans include Obama guaranteeing the Saudis that he will guarantee a World War Three nuclear holocaust if Iran ever uses the bomb he is giving them by committing America to total war.

Do you like that part of the deal, liberal?  Do you like the fact that Obama’s wicked deal is pushing Sunni Arab countries to obtain their own nuclear weapons to the bomb that they all know Obama is giving Iran???  Do you like Obama creating a nuclear arms race in the craziest part of the world???  Do you like the part that guarantees that if any of these nations are ever attacked by Iran as backed by Russia, the United States will jeopardize every single life of every single American in an Armageddon-style nuclear holocaust???  Does it bother you that every single decent Middle Eastern ally is horrified by the details of this deal whose details Obama has prevented either Congress or the American people from seeing???  Does it bother you that Obama’s policy is to treat our historic allies as enemies and our historic enemies as allies???  Does it bother you that Obama is desperately trying – against ALL advice and ALL common sense – to make Iran the most economically powerful nation in the region so it can fund even more destabilizing war and terrorism across the world than it is already doing as we speak???  But it’s here in black-and-white:

U.S. promises to beef up defense aid to Persian Gulf allies
By Paul Richter and Alexandra Zavis
April 7, 2015, 6:30 PM|Reporting from WASHINGTON
▼ White House invites leaders of six Arab nations to the presidential retreat at Camp David
▼ Obama’s goal is to keep Arab monarchies from buying sensitive technology or a nuclear weapon from Pakistan
▼ The White House is weighing new security commitments to Israel

Obama administration officials are promising a major strengthening of U.S. defense commitments to Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf allies, possibly including a nuclear commitment to their security, in an intensifying effort to win their support for the proposed nuclear deal with Iran.

Officials say they hope to reassure nervous gulf Arab states by providing more military aid and training to their defense forces, and by making more explicit commitments to help them repel external attacks.

The administration is studying whether to make any nuclear assurances, though officials emphasize no decision has been made.

The White House has invited leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council nations — Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Oman — to the presidential retreat at Camp David in coming weeks, though the date is not confirmed. U.S. officials are expected to make public new security arrangements at the meeting.

The administration’s goal, officials said Tuesday, is to convince the Arab monarchies that U.S. security guarantees will make them safer than if they buy sensitive technology or a nuclear weapon from Pakistan, a Sunni Muslim ally, as the Saudis have privately threatened to do.

The White House is weighing separate new commitments to Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has shown no sign of tempering his fierce criticism of a deal that would ease economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for verifiable limits on its ability to enrich uranium or conduct most other nuclear work for at least 10 years.

Negotiators from six world powers and Iran have set a June 30 deadline to try to complete the proposed accord. But the details released when the framework for the agreement was announced Thursday unsettled the Persian Gulf monarchies that have been core U.S. allies for 70 years, as well as Israel.

The monarchies see themselves as Tehran’s chief regional rivals and fear that the nuclear deal signals an American “pivot to Persia” that would empower Shiite Muslim Iran and leave the Sunni Arab states at a disadvantage.

President Obama took pains in several interviews to try to allay those fears.

“We’re going to be there for our [Persian Gulf] friends,” Obama told columnist Thomas Friedman. “I want to see how we can formalize that a little bit more than we currently have, and also help build their capacity so that they feel more confident about their ability to protect themselves from external aggression.”

With much of the Middle East torn by civil war or other upheavals, the oil-rich gulf monarchies remain crucial U.S. allies.

Several have joined the U.S.-led airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria. The U.S., in turn, has provided intelligence and logistic support to the Saudi-led coalition bombing rebel forces in Yemen who are backed by Iran.

Strengthening U.S. relations with the gulf states “is a big deal — it’s got to be one of the central components of the U.S. strategy after the Iran deal,” said Ilan Goldenberg, a former Obama administration official now at the Center for a New American Security, a nonpartisan think tank in Washington.

Goldenberg compared the White House outreach to the way the Nixon administration worked to bolster security ties to Japan and Taiwan after opening relations with China, their main regional rival, in 1972.

But the Obama administration faces unique challenges.

The Saudis especially have been disappointed with Obama’s approach to the Middle East. They see themselves battling Iran in a sectarian war raging across Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Syria, and fear easing of the economic sanctions in a nuclear deal could reinvigorate Iran’s economy and make it even more of a regional threat.

Saudi officials have made clear that they don’t want a public battle with Washington, and on Monday issued cautious statements of support for the framework. “We hope there will be a deal based on the principles that the U.S. government has articulated to us,” Adel Jubeir, the Saudi ambassador to the United States, told reporters.

But privately, many Saudi officials say they are skeptical that the deal will stop Tehran from eventually developing nuclear weapons because the restrictions it would impose are not permanent.

“The regime will sit and wait for 10 or 15 years to pass and it will restore its nuclear activities legally and legitimately,” said Mustafa Alani, a security studies scholar at the Gulf Research Center in Dubai who is close to the kingdom’s rulers.

Such concerns have been expressed privately to the Obama administration through the region’s embassies, Alani said. The aim isn’t to torpedo an eventual agreement. “We believe a diplomatic solution is better than any other solution, military or more economic sanctions,” he said.

One challenge for the White House is whether it can expand a defense relationship that already is enormous. Bahrain is home to the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet, and the Pentagon keeps 35,000 troops, two aircraft carrier task forces, cyber warfare specialists, drone aircraft units and more in the region. The United States and Saudi Arabia are in the middle of a 20-year, $60-billion arms deal.

It’s also not clear that U.S. nuclear security commitments would be useful or welcomed by the gulf states.

The administration would have a hard time trying to get Congress, which has been skeptical about the U.S.-Saudi relationship, to enact a treaty that put a U.S. nuclear “umbrella” over Arab Sunni nations, as the United States has over Japan and South Korea.

Such agreements aim to deter nuclear attack by warning foes that the United States would retaliate with overwhelming force if an ally is attacked with a nuclear weapon.

The administration might try to adopt the policy by administrative action to end-run Congress. But the gulf states might not welcome a public statement to guarantee their safety. Because of domestic anger at the United States, these governments have long been leery of being too publicly aligned with Washington.

“They want an American security blanket, but without us having to shout about it,” said Simon Henderson, a Persian Gulf specialist at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, a public policy group in Washington.

U.S. officials say they may try to persuade the Saudis to sign a so-called 1-2-3 agreement, which gives countries special U.S. help building a civilian nuclear power industry as long as they accept restrictions to prevent development of a nuclear weapons program. But analysts said the Saudis probably would not agree because, at least in theory, it would give them less freedom to pursue a nuclear program someday than the Iranians.

Another possible gesture would be to declare the gulf states “major non-NATO allies,” said Thomas Lippman, a Saudi specialist at the nonpartisan Middle East Institute in Washington. The designation, applied to close allies like Japan, Australia and Israel, provides special help in buying weapons and obtaining U.S. weapons.

Richter reported from Washington and Zavis from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Times staff writer Laura King in Jerusalem contributed to this report.

We’re so screwed it’s beyond unreal.  Obama doesn’t give a DAMN about you, your parents, your spouse, your children, your family, your friends, etc. etc.  He is a truly wicked and depraved man.  He is a malignant narcissist who cares only about himself.  And he wants to be able to posture himself as some historic “dealmaker” who – as he put it – “slowed the rise of the oceans and began to heal the planet” and “made the world better, safer and more peaceful than it has ever been.”  He is determined to leave office crowing about that and try to set up the next Democrat for election to the White House, and he frankly doesn’t CARE what happens three or four years from now because of his wicked deal.

When you examine how North Korea kept pushing and cheating and lying and playing us after Bill Clinton made his infamous nuclear deal with that dictatorship.  When you see how they kept cheating and working until they had the ballistic missiles they needed and then – POOF!!! – went nuclear, you should understand that Democrats are simply not capable of learning and will make the same mistakes over and over and over again.

I mean, holy crap, please look at the chronology from the time that Bill Clinton crowed about making the world wonderful and North Korea detonating a nuclear bomb armed with missiles to deliver it.  And try to prove to me that Obama has demonstrated and manifested the absolute hardness that he will go to war with Iran if that country doesn’t cross so much as one ‘t’ or dot one ‘i’ as that country follows North Korea’s example.

WATCH Bill Clinton make all the same damn false promises and provide all the same damn false assurances about his wicked North Korea deal that Obama is deceitfully making now:

For God’s sake, Democrat, please stop, think, learn from history and slow down in your mad rush to allow Obama to pave the way for Antichrist so you can take the mark of the beast and burn in hell forever and ever and ever.

Because right now, RIGHT NOW, Democrat, YOU are guaranteeing the rise of Antichrist and YOU are guaranteeing Armageddon.  God is one day going to hold YOU responsible for what YOUR leader whom YOU voted for did.  And hell will be eternal because even eternity will not be long enough for YOU to pay for YOUR crimes against the world that YOU are setting into motion right now.

Barack Obama is now not merely making all the same mistakes that led the world into World War II by appeasing our enemies and emboldening them with weakness; he is making the same mistakes that led the world into World War I by forming crazy alliances that will drag the United States into total global war.  This deal with Iran is the worst of all possible worlds.

And yes, it is WORSE than war with Iran, because if we went to war with Iran now, at least we wouldn’t be going to war with a country that can devastate several of our largest cities and kill millions of our people as they seek to cause the appearing of the Twelfth Imam by bathing the world in blood.

PLEASE understand that as evil and as insane as North Korea is, their goal is to survive and continue their regime at all cost, whereas Iran as ALL radical jihadist Muslims have demonstrated OVER AND OVER again that their goal is to die as martyrs in an ocean of blood at all costs.

PLEASE allow just one moment of sober thought that hasn’t been beamed directly into your brain matter by Satan to enter your head so you can comprehend REALITY.

But no, Democrat, YOU are hell-bent on hell.  The truth has been veiled to you because you are defiant of God, bent on depravity, such that your warped mind has been blinded by the god of this age.

Hell is coming for you, Democrat, every bit as much as destruction is coming upon the world because of you.  Because “YOU offered superficial treatments for God’s people’s mortal wound. YOU gave assurances of peace when there WAS no peace” per Jeremiah 6:14 and 8:11.

RIGHT NOW, Democrat, YOU are declaring to God, “If this is a bad deal that my messiah Obama is making with Iran, let it fall upon MY head and the heads of MY children.  Let my nation perish as we are forced by Obama into a full-fledged nuclear Armageddon.”

The very heavens are testifying against Obama and against YOU (and see also here), Democrat.

You whine about global warming on one hand for crises and then hypocritically cite “insufficient global warming” as your excuse for Obama’s failed economy on the other, but it is YOU who have brought “climate change” with your depraved shaking of your fist at God according to Romans chapter one verses 18-31 and according to Pslam 139 and now as you curse Israel by abandoning her in her hour of need.  And so God is fulfilling His Word to us according to Amos 4:7, “”I kept the rain from falling when your crops needed it the most. I sent rain on one town but withheld it from another. Rain fell on one field, while another field withered away.”

Because of your wickedness as God judges YOU and curses YOU for your wicked actions through him, you will inherit all the curses of Deuteronomy 28:22-26:

22“The LORD will smite you with consumption and with fever and with inflammation and with fiery heat and with the sword and with blight and with mildew, and they will pursue you until you perish. 23“The heaven which is over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you, iron. 24“The LORD will make the rain of your land powder and dust; from heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed.

25“The LORD shall cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you will go out one way against them, but you will flee seven ways before them, and you will be an example of terror to all the kingdoms of the earth. 26“Your carcasses will be food to all birds of the sky and to the beasts of the earth, and there will be no one to frighten them away.

THAT is precisely what you are negotiating for in your false messiah’s “deal” with Iran, Democrat.  Iran will get its wish as it bathes the world in blood to make the beast come.  Because, yes, what they call the Twelfth Imam is one of the beasts of Revelation according to Revelation chapter thirteen.  And notice that it is only AFTER Israel depicted as a woman pregnant with Child – is abandoned to her fate unless God Himself save her in Revelation chapter twelve that the beasts come in chapter thirteen.

Hell is coming for YOU, Democrat.  And it is coming because right now YOU are sowing to the wind and demanding that you reap the whirlwind.

Don’t think that YOU will escape from the hell that YOU are bringing, Democrat.

Jesus came into the world as the ultimate fulfillment of Psalm 139.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit to be the Lamb of God who would take away the sin of the world.  But YOU and EVERY SINGLE Democrat saw only an unwed young girl and told her to have an abortion.  And so your baby Jesus was slaughtered in the womb just as YOU have slaughtered 60 MILLION babies in the womb.  And so Jesus never lived to live the perfect life that you would not live, wicked Democrat, and to take your place for you and die for your sins.

You don’t have much time, Democrat.  Soon the Rapture is coming, the moment when Jesus Christ meets every single true believer in the air before the coming divine judgment of the Tribulation.  You won’t be going with Jesus because you have long-since placed your faith in human government and in Obama, rather than in Jesus.

One way or another, we are watching in this Malignant Narcissist Fool-in-Chief – who can’t help but keep hating Christians because Obama hated Jesus first just as Jesus testified the wicked would do – bring about the very end of days just as the Bible foretold the end would come.

And that is because Barack Hussein Obama is an Antichrist who is now openly paving the way for THE Antichrist.

And every single Democrats is actively helping him to do it.

Don’t think for one second that YOU won’t share Obama’s fate, Democrat.  Obama is powerful only because YOU gave him power.  And he is using that power that YOU gave him to ultimately bring hell to earth.

No One On EARTH More Responsible For Rise In Islamic Terrorism Than Our Own Terrorist-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama

January 16, 2015

It is a fascinating thing to watch the left as America and the world are viciously attacked by Islamic terrorism and in their war against the West, against Christendom, against Judeo-Christian Western Civilization, against freedom, against democracy and against our entire way of life.  Barack Obama, the Democrat Party, the leftist pseudo-intellectuals and the mainstream media have fabricated this narrative of “us against them,” whereby Christians and conservatives are illegitimately attacking this peaceful religion called Islam.  The reality is so different it is beyond belief; it is NOT “us against them” but rather it is “THEM against us” while we stand by and get slaughtered because it is politically incorrect for us to stand up for our values or fight for our own lives and the lives of our children.

At least – because I have no doubt this percentage has GROWN given the recent attacks we’re seeing –  27% of young French Muslims support the vicious terrorist army called the Islamic State.  And TWICE as many British Muslims are fighting for Islamic State as are fighting for the UK armed forces.  Don’t you DARE try to argue with me that “Islam” and “terrorism” aren’t mutually interwoven and linked.

Obama campaigned for president in 2007 and 2008 demonizing George Bush, conservatives and Republicans for their war on terror and over and over again blamed them – and yes, blamed America – for the entire problem of terrorism.  It wasn’t that these vicious Muslims hate us and want to kill us and destroy everything we stand for and force us to do what “Islam” really means and SUBMIT to Allah and to sharia law; it was that we built a prison facility at Guantanamo Bay that was inciting otherwise peaceful, happy wonderful people to saw off the heads of people who never hurt anyone.

Obama promised us that when he was president, he would “fundamentally transform” the world and solve all of our problems and end the war on Islamic terror by first of all denying it was either Islamic or terror and secondly denying there was a war.

It is my contention that as a direct result of his presidency and his policies, terrorism has exploded into a force that is rapidly growing into a terrifying new reality.

I point out for simple history’s sake that terrorists inspired by Islam massively attacked the United States on September 11, 2001.  It was most definitely NOT as a result of any Bush policies; the man had been in office for less than eight months and the attack on the World Trade Center, on the Pentagon and on Congress had been planned for years.  Every single terrorist was already in America and trained and funded prior to George W. Bush taking office.  And in fact there had been an incredibly disturbing pattern of terrorist attacks against United States territory during the eight preceding years that one William Jefferson Clinton was in office.

So we were attacked and George Bush led America’s massive response.  And liberal Democrats such as Barack Obama ridiculously blamed that response as the cause of the terror that the response was actually a response TO.

But as ridiculous as Obama’s and the Democrat Party’s insane claims were on their face, we had a question to resolve: would their policies do a better job???  Or would our terrorist enemies, inspired and incited by the Islam that our liberal leaders refuse to acknowledge, sense our indecision, our naivety and our weakness and build themselves stronger for more and more frequent attacks?

And the facts demonstrate for all human history to witness that the latter is precisely what happened as the world is now melting down into terror even as Obama says, “please don’t use force to deal with these monsters.”  His own words were, “It’s important for Europe not to simply respond with a hammer and law enforcement and military approaches to these problems.”  By all means, let’s not; because terrorists’ hearts melt when we lay down our arms and surrender to them.

History has given us the results of the Obama experiment.  And Obama has wildly failed.

Let’s consider what is happening under our leader of the free world and his insanely immoral and foolish policies:

Increase in Jihadist Threat Calls for New U.S. Strategy to Combat Terrorism
FOR RELEASE
Wednesday
June 4, 2014

There is a growing terrorist threat to the United States from a rising number of Salafi-jihadist groups overseas, according to a RAND Corporation study.

Since 2010, there has been a 58 percent increase in the number of jihadist groups, a doubling of jihadist fighters and a tripling of attacks by al Qaeda affiliates. The most significant threat to the United States, the report concludes, comes from terrorist groups operating in Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan.

“Based on these threats, the United States cannot afford to withdraw or remain disengaged from key parts of North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia,” said Seth Jones, author of the study and associate director of the International Security and Defense Policy Center at RAND, a nonprofit research organization. “After more than a decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, it may be tempting for the U.S. to turn its attention elsewhere and scale back on counterterrorism efforts. But this research indicates that the struggle is far from over.”

For the RAND study, Jones examined thousands of unclassified and declassified primary source documents, including public statements and internal memorandums of al Qaeda and other Salafi-jihadist leaders. The study also includes a database of information such as the number of Salafi-jihadist groups, their approximate size and their activity — attacks, fatalities and other casualties. […]

Now, one of the interesting things is that this article highlights YEMEN as a major source of Islamic terrorism.  Any sane, rational, leader would focus the war effort on such a country.  But let’s say that instead of being a sane, rational leader, our leader is indwelt by so many demons that it would dwarfs the number of demons in the demoniac named “Legion, for we are many” whom Jesus confronted in the Gospels?

Such a pathologically demon-indwelt leader would do this:

“This counterterrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort … using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground,” said Obama. “This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years.”

Yes, our demoniac-in-chief actually cited YEMEN as his success model!!!  You simply cannot get more insane or more wicked than that.  This goes even beyond Neville Chamberlain praising Hitler for “peace in our time.”  You don’t GET this stupid or this wicked unless there are so many demons screaming inside your brain that you wouldn’t be able to know truth if it smacked you right in the mouth.

We just had a massive Islamic terrorist attack in France which directly targeted democracy and freedom of speech.  Set aside the fact that Barack Obama refuses to say we’re in any kind of “war,” or that our enemies are in any way motivated by the Islam which clearly motivates them.  Just consider the sub-headline which screams in your face at the top of page A4 in the print version of the Los Angeles Times:

Al Qaeda Thrives in Yemen chaos.  Those are the words in giant bold face printed on January 15.  Contrast those words with the demon-possessed moral idiocy of our Fool-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama.

So what did Obama do after the massive terrorist attack in France was discovered to have been planned and funded by al Qaeda in Yemen?

He released five more deadly terrorists from Guantanamo Bay who had come from, yes, YEMEN.  Obama literally rewarded al Qaeda in Yemen for it’s brilliant and daring attack against freedom in France.

So what did Obama do?  In spite of all rationality and all decency, Obama falsely claimed that he had “decimated” al Qaeda even AFTER they murdered our ambassador in an outrageous attack in Benghazi, Libya.  In that attack, Obama sent out his administration stooges such as Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton but also himself claimed that it was NOT a terrorist attack but rather free speech (and PLEASE see here) that was our problem (the Youtube lie that everyone now knows beyond any shred of a doubt was nothing but a pure political cover-up that ought to have got Obama impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors).

And even AFTER the Benghazi attack, Obama went on to claim the demise of al Qaeda at least THIRTY-TWO times while doing NOTHING to stop the spread of the terrorist groups he falsely and dishonestly claimed he had defeated.

I have painstakingly documented how Obama is ENTIRELY responsible for the rise of the gigantic Islamic Caliphate across Iraq and Syria that Osama bin Laden dreamed of and Obama made a reality.

Iraq: Bush’s Victory, Obama’s Despicable Defeat

Obama’s Utterly Failed Policy With Syria, Egypt, Iran, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan And The Entire Middle East Is A Clear And Present Danger

Obama’s Disinformation, Deception, Deceit Led To Disarray And Defeat In Iraq. And It Will Happen In Afghanistan As History Repeats.

The Blame Game Masters: Iran’s Plan B Has Always Been Obama’s Plan A-Z. Consider How Obama Blames Bush For His Iraq Failure.

Obama’s ‘300’ In Iraq: It Won’t Be Like Thermopylae Because We Aint Sparta And Obama Definitely Aint Leonidas

The Tide Of War Is Receding': Barack Obama Is ENTIRELY Responsible For The Disastrous Meltdown In Iraq And Across The Middle East

Obama Presidency ‘Bogus And Wrong’ As He Dishonestly Claims It’s Not His Fault He Abandoned Iraq After Bush Secured Victory There

I document the following: that the Obama administration declared victory in the Iraq War (as won by George W. Bush).  That Barack Obama planned from the very beginning unilaterally withdraw US forces from Iraq and abandon Iraq to its fate while promising a new dawn in “an Iraq that is sovereign, stable and self reliant.”  After his Vice President had boasted of the Iraq victory (that Bush won), “I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.”  Yes, Obama planned to abandon Iraq from the VERY BEGINNING of his presidency and even when he was a CANDIDATE for president, the facts prove.  Obama’s cut-and-run from Iraq had NOTHING to do with any “status of forces” nonsense; it had to do with the nonsense in his demon-possessed ideology.  Yes, the generals predicted DISASTER for Obama’s demonic and foolish Iraq withdrawal that led to the terrorists retaking IN SPADES everything our troops had fought and died to win.

When Obama declared his “red line” policy with Syria – only to have Obama cower and back down from his threat while Syria REPEATEDLY used chemical weapons to kill their own people – Obama assured the forces of evil that he was a spineless punk who wouldn’t have the courage or the balls to stand up to them and fight unless he could do so remotely with a drone; they were assured that Obama would NEVER seriously commit Americans to fight evil as that evil metastasized into a fatal cancer given his own party’s rabid refusal to do so.

And look what’s happened as a result.

Let’s look at the explosion in terrorism in 2012 from 2011 under our leader of the free world, Barack Hussein Obama:

Terrorist attacks and deaths hit record high, report shows
By Daniel Burke, CNN Belief Blog co-editor
October 28th, 2013
03:56 PM ET

Washington (CNN) – As terrorism increasingly becomes a tactic of warfare, the number of attacks and fatalities soared to a record high in 2012, according to a new report obtained exclusively by CNN.

More than 8,500 terrorist attacks killed nearly 15,500 people last year as violence tore through Africa, Asia and the Middle East, according to the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.

That’s a 69% rise in attacks and an 89% jump in fatalities from 2011, said START, one of the world’s leading terrorism-trackers.

Six of the seven most deadly groups are affiliated with al Qaeda, according to START, and most of the violence was committed in Muslim-majority countries.

The previous record for attacks was set in 2011 with more than 5,000 incidents; for fatalities the previous high was 2007 with more than 12,800 deaths. […]

Note: the PREVIOUS record had been set under Barack Hussein Obama in 2011.  We’re exploding from the explosion.

Now let’s consider the explosion in 2014 from 2013.

Also, in this article I want to highlight two salient facts: 1) the shocking rise of actual terrorist attacks and 2) the direct correlation between the Nazism that the left has always insanely blamed on Christianity and the political right – when “Nazi” stood for “National Socialist German Workers Party,” glorified giant, totalitarian government and never had ANYTHING whatsoever to do with either Christianity Or the right – and the Islamic jihadists that the left ardently protects by refusing to allow the West to do what is needed and FIGHT these cockroaches (to wit, who is protecting the Nazis of today?  Leftist/socialist governments, Barack Obama and the American Democrat Party, that’s who):

Anti-Semitic Attacks Skyrocket in Europe
September 12, 2014 Rachel Molschky

Pro-Palestinian "protesters" in Paris hover around a swastika. (Photo credit: Etienne Laurent/European Pressphoto Agency)

Anti-Semitic attacks have increased by 400% in the UK and have doubled in France. Attacks in Europe overall have increased by 436%, and 383% in the world. People are becoming more brazen since the leftwing atmosphere and liberal groups, together with the growing Muslim community in the West, have joined forces to promote anti-Israel propaganda, a politically correct version of anti-Semitism.

People have reverted back to using Jews as a scapegoat, blaming their own problems on Jews, something which has always existed but that once again has the stamp of approval via certain political groups which focus on the victimization of the aggressors and on increasing their voting pool with virtually uncontrolled immigration. This has led to a jump in the Muslim population in the West, and Muslims have brought over the anti-Semitism that is preached in their mosques, on their TVs and in their schools.

It is important to note that a recent Anti-Defamation League (ADL) survey found that 70% of anti-Semites have never met a Jew.

Arutz Sheva reports:

A total of 529 anti-Semitic actions or threats were registered up to the end of July, against 276 for the same period last year, the Council of Jewish Institutions in France (CRIF) said, citing figures gleaned from the French Interior Ministry.

The acts included violence against individuals, arson and vandalism, and “exacerbate the growing unease that oppresses Jews in France each day and overshadows their future”, CRIF said in a statement.

Yet more worrying, the group added, is the appearance of new forms of violence against Jews – including attacks by organized gangs and the targeting of synagogues, as well as acts of vandalism against Jewish businesses and planned terrorist attacks.

Meanwhile in the UK, the Community Security Trust (CST) anti-Semitism watchdog group reports 302 anti-Semitic incidents in July alone, making a whopping 400% increase over the same month last year.

Read on

A third thing would be the insane hatred of Jews that Satan has ALWAYS had for Jews and which the Bible prophesied would happen in the last days in both the Old and New Testament of God’s Word.  And again, the direct correlation between the hatred of God’s people and Satan and the left which shelters and protects the terrorists and the religion that inspires and motivates these terrorists in every way imaginable.

Here’s another demonstration of shocking, massive increases of terrorism under and because of Barack Hussein Obama’s massively failed “leadership” over the free world:

Terrorist-related deaths up 60%: vast majority related to Islamic terrorists
The amount of people killed by terrorists is up according to a new report:
November 18, 2014
COGwriter

The number of people killed in terrorist attacks jumped more than 60 percent from 2012 to 2013, due largely to unrest in the Middle East and Nigeria, a new report found.

Report on Rise in Terrorism - 2012 - 2013.
Report on Rise in Terrorism – 2012 – 2013.

Deaths due to terrorism rose from 11,133 in 2012 to 17,958 in 2013, according to the Global Terrorism Index produced by the Institute for Economics and Peace, a think tank based in Australia.  […]

Here’s another thing: it is BEYOND SCANDALOUS how Barak Hussein Obama has lied about the explosion of Islamic terrorism under HIS presidency, just as it is equally scandalous how dishonestly the mainstream media has refused to cover that explosion or identify the shocking increases that have happened as a direct result of Obama’s incredibly foolish and weak and frankly wicked policies to a) refuse to even acknowledge that we are in a “war,” b) to refuse to identify our enemy so we can actually fight that enemy – as Islamist, and c) to gut our military, gut our intelligence and gut our ability to either defend ourselves or project force and influence around the globe in this out-of-control WAR THAT WE ARE RAPIDLY LOSING.

Terrorism has metastasized under Obama.  It is exploding out of control.  The number of terrorist organizations is exploding; the number of individual terrorists joining those organizations is exploding; the funding and well-organizational structure of those organizations is exploding; the ability of these organizations to recruit and train replacements is exploding; and the lone wolf attacks are exploding in murderous fury.  These are all simple facts.

And we are like stupid, helpless sheep, or worse yet, like ostriches who bury their heads in the sand because of leftist propaganda and because of the lies coming out of our wicked White House.

I think today of Liam Neesam – who insanely and hypocritically is making appearances to market his new incredibly violent propaganda piece that directly glorified gun violence – coming out and demonizing the gun culture that his movies further massively inspire!!!  That is the level and degree of abject personal hypocrisy and dishonesty coming out of the political and cultural and media left today.

Liberals are such astonishingly massive hypocrites there is simply no question that they are clearly and truly demon-possessed and incapable of seeing reality.  I see liberals flying around in private jets lecturing us on our carbon footprints while themselves leaving such giant jackboot prints themselves it’s a freaking joke.  I see liberals condemning conservatives for wanting to build a wall on the southern border to protect what’s left of their country while these same liberals build giant walls around every-damn-thing they own.  I see liberals praising public schools who would NEVER put their spoiled little punk children in the very schools that they insist “little people” should be forced to put their kids in.  And so yeah, I see liberals surrounded by armed professional security demonizing those same little people for thinking that their lives matter enough to buy a gun to protect themselves, their families and their property.

These are professional liars who take pretending to be other people to ridiculous extremes as they pump out propaganda film after propaganda film and then claim they have zero responsibility for their own work or their own behavior.

Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels envied Hollywood for their incredible ability to produce first-rate propaganda movies during World War II:

Hitler was obsessive about films; he aimed to watch one a night.

He and Goebbels were also quick to recognise the persuasive power of film, and would regularly cast envious eyes over the propaganda output of their enemies

And see also here.  The United States has ALWAYS had the world’s greatest potential to deceive its own people.  And liberal culture has put their propaganda machine into high overdrive in movies and in newspapers and in every other venue there is.  And more Americans believe more lies today than we have ever seen in our nation’s history.

You know, there isn’t an American who was old enough at the time to know anything who can’t remember the footage of George H.W. Bush saying, “Read my lips, no new taxes” and knowing the backstory that he raised taxes after saying that.  Because the mainstream media endlessly ran and re-ran that footage to discredit him.  There isn’t anyone who doesn’t remember the footage of George W. Bush on that aircraft carrier under the banner “Mission Accomplished.”  Because the mainstream media endlessly ran and re-ran that footage to discredit him.  Just like they ran and re-ran Bush saying, “Heck of a job, Brownie” during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to discredit him.  I’m simply stating as a categorical fact that had the mainstream media done to Obama anything like they did to either Bush, Obama would have been forcibly removed from office because even his own party would not have been able to not support his impeachment.

But today this nation is swamped under a deep, raging ocean of lies and propaganda and demon-possessed distortion of the truth.

So we have Obama on TV today with the British Prime Minister blathering on like the snake he is as if his policies are in any way, shape or form working when they are clearly NOT working.

And what is the cause of all this disaster according to our FOOL-in-Chief?  Gitmo is still open and that is inspiring the terrorists to fight us and somehow if we just closed it down and apologized for our values and made it a crime to insult the Prophet they wouldn’t realize our weakness and attack us; no, they would stop fighting and shake our hands.

Obama said something that ought to terrify you.  Realize that there are more than a billion Muslims, and that experts estimate that 10-15% of them are radicalized and believe in violent jihad.  Realize that we are dealing with – in terms of sheer demographic numbers – something on the order of 300 million potential terrorists.  Realize that means that we have a potential of MILLION terrorists even as we have not only well-organized, well-funded, well-trained terrorist groups attacking us but thousands and thousands and potentially millions and millions of lone wolves murdering as many innocents as they can in the name of Allah and his “Prophet.”  And realize that Obama has been claiming regarding the war against Islamic terrorism that Obama won’t call a war and won’t call Islamic terrorism that, “I do not consider this an existential threat… this is one that we will solve.”

OH MY GOD!  YES THIS IS AN EXISTENTIAL THREAT.   We faced an existential threat during the Cold War where we realized that the communists dwarfed us in numbers and military might.  And we built our arsenal to first catch up to them and ultimately to have the capacity to defeat them while Democrats screamed about it and demanded we do the exact opposite and try to appease our merciless foes.  Thank God for Ronald Reagan!  Thank GOD that Reagan pursued the strategy that John F. Kennedy tried to pursue and create a healthy economy through low taxes such that we could literally turn what would have become a shooting war into a spending war and we were able to outspend our communist threat and cause it to economically implode.  Kennedy and Reagan were Cold Warriors and their policies prevailed.

Now we have a fool who is pursuing the exact OPPOSITE of a strategy to win a war on terror.  First of all, he won’t even acknowledge it IS a war.  Second of all, he won’t recognize the nature of our enemy or the threat that they present to our culture and our way of life.  Third he won’t allow us to build our arsenal and our military to defend against that threat.  And so now what we have in the not-very-longer-free world is a tragic situation in which we are losing a war due to a “growing gap between the increasingly challenging threat and the decreasing availability of capabilities to address it.”  Because we have truly gutted our military capability under Obama as he has falsely claimed that we defeated terrorism and contained any threat even as that threat was obviously exploding all around us.

During the Cold War, we did NOT have Russians or Chinese or North Korean communists coming here and murdering our citizens in group and lone wolf attacks.  Which makes this war different and more deadly.  During the Cold War, we did NOT face a menace that believed that total war would please their god.  We actually have such a menace now.  And the population of our enemy is exploding while our leftist leaders and our leftist culture has encouraged us to murder more than sixty million of our own children.  We are losing the war on the front of demographics even as we lose the war in terms of our secular=humanist inspired unwillingness to fight to defend ourselves verses their religious motivation to fight to destroy us.

Arguably, the only existential threat facing America that is more deadly to this nation than the threat of Islamic terrorism is our president and commander-in-chief who has prevented us from fighting and who has actually aided and abetted our terrorist enemy in undermining and ultimately defeating us.

What A Difference A Hypocrite – Actually Just The Whole Hypocrite Democrat Party – Can Make When It Comes To Shutting Down The Government

December 12, 2014

Last year, Obama and the entire Democrat Party came unglued over Republican obstructionism – and literally anarchy and even hostage-taking and terrorism – because the Republicans were prepared to vote against the Democrat Party agenda and risk a government shutdown.

I mean, do you remember this crap out of Obama’s White House a year ago?

White House compares GOP to terrorists as government shutdown nears
By Dave Boyer – The Washington Times – Thursday, September 26, 2013

Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer on Thursday compared Republican lawmakers to suicide bombers as the showdown over a possible government shutdown intensified.

“We are for cutting spending, we are for reforming our tax code, we are for reforming entitlements,” Mr. Pfeiffer told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “But what we are not for is negotiating with people who have a bomb strapped to their chest.”

Here was Obama:

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  Good morning, everybody.  At midnight last night, for the first time in 17 years, Republicans in Congress chose to shut down the federal government.  Let me be more specific:  One faction, of one party, in one house of Congress, in one branch of government, shut down major parts of the government — all because they didn’t like one law.

This Republican shutdown did not have to happen

Last night Democrats in the House did absolutely everything they coul to shut down the government.

But in a world and in a political party that despises truth, such facts are irrelevant.

And of course the mainstream media – being the NAZIS they are – duly drooled out the Democrat Party talking points in lieu of the actual news.

But what a difference a year makes.  And now where are all the cockroach “journalists” who had horrible labels for Republicans because they were acting like Democrats acted just last night???

They’re hiding under the refrigerator, of course.  BECAUSE LIBERALS ARE ROACHES.

Elizabeth Warren was against government shutdowns before she was for them
By Doug Powers  •  December 11, 2014 02:56 PM

Last year, Elizabeth Warren tomahawked those in the GOP “Anarchy Gang” for bringing the government to the point of a shutdown:

Warren telling GOPers last year that “this democracy has already rejected your views” is an overdose of retro-irony considering the results of last month’s election. But anyway, fast forward to this week:

Congressional Democrats objected on Wednesday to controversial financial and political campaign provisions tucked into a $1.1 trillion U.S. spending bill, keeping the risk of a government shutdown alive.

The complaints from House of Representatives Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats clouded the chances for passage of the funding bill as a midnight Thursday deadline drew near.
[…]
Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, a staunch advocate for tougher regulation of Wall Street, called for Democrats to withhold support from the bill due to the derivatives provision, which would effectively strike down a portion of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law enacted in the wake of a financial crisis fueled partly by complex mortgage derivatives.

Shutdowns are now … whatever the socialist hypocrite opposite of “anarchy” is:

So now the Democrats are calling Republicans “blackmailers.”

Nancy Pelosi: This is ‘blackmail’
By Lauren French
| 12/11/14 2:31 PM EST
| Updated 12/11/14 9:13 PM EST

Nancy Pelosi is “disappointed” in Barack Obama for backing a bill she described as a form of “blackmail” on the part of Republicans.

Because to be a Democrat is to be a pathologically unhinged lying hypocrite.

So now voting to pass a damn budget is “blackmail” when a year ago it was the essence of patriotism and virtue.  And to vote to shut down the damn government is the essence of patriotism and virtue, when a year ago it was the essence of treason and the heart of right-wing racist darkness.

This abject, despicable display of rabid hypocrisy is nothing new.  It’s par for the course from the party that decreed “elections have consequences.”  Unless they lose said election.  This is par for the course from the party that supported the Iraq War and voted for it only to treasonously betray their very own votes the moment the political winds changed.  58% of Democratic senators (29 of 50) voted for the Iraq War Resolution, including Joe Biden (D-DE), Hillary Clinton (D-NY), John Kerry (D-MA) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).  Only to turn on the American troops they themselves had voted to send to war.  This is par for the course for the party that was fully briefed on waterboarding with NO OBJECTIONSAND OH, YES THEY WERE BRIEFED – only to later lie about it and disown the truth the way the disowned the CIA officers whose “crime” was to follow the laws as the laws were at a very dark and frightening time when 3,000 innocent Americans had just been viciously murdered and no one knew whether another massive attack was imminent.  Now they put America at risk in a “report” that amounts to a giant whine in which the informed professional officials like Obama’s own handpicked CIA Directors Leon Panetta and John Brennan directly refute.  Just imagine what would have happened to their $40 million hit job if they’d actually bothered to interview the professionals who WEREN’T Obama political appointees, given what even the political appointees say.

This is par for the course from the party whose fascist president bitches at Bush for waterboarding three vicious terrorists when this aforementioned fascist bitchy president has murdered more American citizens without one scintilla of due process than Bush waterboarded terrorists.  Meanwhile, Obama’s drone strike victims number in the THOUSANDS with scores of innocent women and children numbered with the guilty.  And this Nazi dares to stand in judgment of a period of time when the New York Times was reporting that al-Qaeda had obtained a 10-kiloton nuclear weapon and smuggled it into New York City.  You sanctimonious tube of slime.

Democrats are officially outraged that the people tasked with protecting America would aggressively interrogate people who saw the heads off of children.  I can’t even begin to describe how much Democrats outrage me.

You want to talk about “betrayal of American values,” Democrat?  I’ve got an idea for you; bring to light what Obama is doing TODAY rather than what Bush did to keep the nation safe ten damn years ago.   Expose what Obama did when he covered-up his fiasco in Benghazi with lies that made a grotesque mockery of our national security; help us expose Obama’s criminal abuse of the IRS as a weapon to target his political opponents; help us expose the cynical lies that were behind the passage of ObamaCare.  Expose Obama’s violation of the separation of powers as Obama himself assured us he would be committing if he issued the executive order on amnesty for illegals that he treasonously went ahead and issued anyway.  Do that and then maybe you’d have a shred of credibility – because you sure don’t have any now.  You want to make America “transparent”???  Fine; just help us expose the wrongs of the LEAST TRANSPARENT PRESIDENT IN HISTORY even according to many doctrinaire liberals.

Democrats don’t want to talk about ANY of the MYRIAD disgraces of American values perpetuated by Obama.  And their rabid protection of the most criminally opaque administration in American history proves the don’t give a flaming damn about “transparency.”

Every day in every way, Democrats are liars and hypocrites.

 

The Ebola Presidency Of Barack Obama And His Diseased Democrat Party

October 17, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s a memorable quote for you:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Fact about Ebola:

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

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

 

 

 

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

October 6, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But I’ve pointed all that out before.

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

What they truly hate is liberalism.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Which of course Israel did not do.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not that that ought to ring any bells or anything.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

September 29, 2014

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(…)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

James Clapper is already a documented liar:

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

Clapper: “No, sir.”

Wyden: “It does not?”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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