Barack Obama And Islamic State: The Two Demonic Hooks God Will Use To Fulfill The Prophecy Of The Last Days Gog-Magog War

October 1, 2015

Allow me to state something at the outset of this: evangelical Christians and biblically literate Jews have been noting and pointing to the ominous four blood moons that are happening during the current twelve-month period we are now in.  I myself have written about them (and see here).  The phenomena of a tetrad of blood moons occurring simultaneously with the Jewish biblical feasts is rare and each time it has occurred, it has signaled ominous events for Jews.  As I pointed out, the first blood moon was accompanied by a massive rocket attack as the terrorist organization running Lebanon began raining rockets onto Israel and Israel was forced to react.  Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu pointed out that the same United Nations that has passed twenty resolutions condemning Israel for that action have passed only ONE resolution against Syria – even though the 250,000 people murdered so far in that conflict DWARF the ENTIRE NUMBER killed in the entire HISTORY of every war Israel has ever been in combined.  All I can say for certain is that they ALL are ominous harbingers for Israel and they ALL happened during this incredibly prophetic blood moon tetrad.

What we are finding now is that there are SO MANY ominous events for Israel going on right now that it may be IMPOSSIBLE to determine precisely WHICH truly fulfills the blood moons  Because there are SO MANY things that are truly terrible for Israel all going on at the same time right now.  I talk about the Obama Administration as a firehose of pure evil just pouring out wickedness.  You literally can’t keep track of it all.  So we can look at the first blood moon and wonder if it heralded the massive rocket attack by Hamas or the creation of the caliphate by Islamic State or Obama’s wicked Iran nuclear deal.

In the same way, was this last blood moon that just occurred September 28 a harbinger of the sealing of the wicked Iran nuclear deal or was it the harbinger of the beginning of Russia’s outright projection of military force against the few people friendly to United States’ interests that just began?

Obama has demonized Bush wars so much it is beyond unreal.  He has cast himself as the anti-Bush.  But Bush fought wars and thousands died.  So why is it that if Bush is responsible for people dying by the thousands because of his wars, Obama is NOT responsible for deaths now going by the QUARTERS OF MILLIONS due to Obama refusing to fight evil???  250,000 have miserably perished just in Syria alone, while tens of thousands more have perished in Iraq, in Egypt, in Libya, etcetera.

It is precisely because Obama stood by and did nothing that Gog of Magog just stormed into Syria.

It is this last that I want to deal with today.  I want to talk about Russia directly entering the Middle East as a great and greatly violent power.  And I want to talk about how the Bible prophesied this last days event 2,600 years ago.  Pick up a Bible and turn to Ezekiel 38:

And the word of the LORD came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD, “Behold, I am against you, O Gog, prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal.  “I will turn you about and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you out, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them splendidly attired, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them wielding swords; Persia, Ethiopia and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet; Gomer with all its troops; Beth-togarmah from the remote parts of the north with all its troops– many peoples with you.  “Be prepared, and prepare yourself, you and all your companies that are assembled about you, and be a guard for them.  “After many days you will be summoned; in the latter years you will come into the land that is restored from the sword, whose inhabitants have been gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel which had been a continual waste; but its people were brought out from the nations, and they are living securely, all of them.  — Ezekiel 38:1-8

I know that there isn’t a Democrat on planet earth who takes the Holy Bible, the Word of God, seriously.  Which is why you can worship homosexual sodomy in violation of Romans chapter one on an altar of sixty million murdered babies in violation of Psalm 139 when the Bible declares you are in fact as wicked and depraved as any NAZI.  But here’s the thing: the fact that you refuse to honor God or believe His Word doesn’t change the fundamental FACT that God’s Word is TRUE and WILL come to pass.

And so here we are: just as the Bible taught, in the very last days that the Bible was speaking about, Russia – or shall we call them Gog of the land of Magog given the fact that Russia (formerly Scythia) was identified as Gog dating back to Josephus in the first century AD – is in Syria right on the doorstep of Israel.  You can mock us dispensationalist premillennial Christians all you want, but we were RIGHT about boldly stating that the Bible taught Israel would be resurrected from the dead as a nation in fulfillment of Ezekiel 37 – when there were ABSOLUTELY NO SIGNS IN THIS WORLD that Israel would be so resurrected from the dead – and we were also right in boldly stating going back to John Nelson Darby and CI Scofield that Russia would one day become a great and mighty world power in order to fulfill its role in biblical prophecy.

When Darby – who was merely faithful to the Word of God just as faithful Jews had been every year when they hopefully said, “Next year in Jerusalem!” – stated that the Bible clearly teaches a rebirth of the state of Israel, the nation of Israel was as dead as the dirt of the land it had been on.  When Darby was writing, Mark Twain was also writing.  This is what Mark Twain said about the land that had been “Israel” at the time that Darby was boldly claiming that Israel would be resurrected and regathered as a nation in fulfillment of passages like Ezekiel 37:

Stirring scenes … occur in the valley [Jezreel] no more. There is not a solitary village throughout its whole extent-not for thirty miles in either direction. There are two or three small clusters of Bedouin tents, but not a single permanent habitation. One may ride ten miles hereabouts and not see ten human beings.

God and those who believed His Word were right; and everyone else on earth was utterly wrong.

In the same way, Russia did in fact become a great world power when it had basically been a large mostly empty wasteland just as boldly predicted.  Just as Darby and Scofield, based on their wisdom in properly handling the Word of God – said would happen.

In the very same vein, we can look to what has not yet happened but has been just as boldly predicted by prophetic writers like Joel Rosenberg, to see that one day, Russia, in league with Iran and a host of nations that today are ALL Muslim, will invade/attack Israel in the last days.

Name the writers or thinkers that predicted an airplane would fly kamikaze-style into the World Trade Center and start a great war in the Middle East.  I can: Joel C. Rosenberg in his book, “The Last Jihad.”  He was called the “modern-day Nostradamus” for reading the Bible literally and devising a fictional plot scenario that took what the Bible prophetically taught into account.

So you can mock us all you want, liberal, for fearing and honoring the Word of the Living God.  But here we are, with a country that we predicted would be a great empire on the doorstep of a nation that we said would exist when there were nothing but a few Bedouins and camels there.

The last-days war of Gog-Magog WILL happen.  At this point in history – recognizing that fools abound – only a FOOL would argue that it will not.

Too bad there are so many damn fools.  Which is why we ended up with Obama.  And which is why all the prophecies about the soon-coming Antichrist, a.k.a. the beast, will soon come to pass as people literally worship this world tyrant and take his mark on their right hands or on their foreheads.

I want you to consider Russia’s violent entry into the Middle East.

I want you to realize that every single president since Israel became a nation in 1948 would have gone to WAR with Russia to prevent this day from ever happening.

In 1947, Harry Truman – recognizing the terrifying threat posed by Gog of the land of Magog – issued his Truman Doctrine:

Another of Stalin’s broken promises was to remove troops from Iran after the war. Iran was rich in oil and was an important ally for both the U.S. and the Soviet Union. The Soviets stationed troops in Iran during the war to secure the Middle East and prevent German attacks. At the Tehran Conference in 1943, all of the major Allies agreed to remove troops from Iran. However, the Soviets still had troops stationed there in 1946, a full year after the war. Stalin went so far as to use his military to support and aid a rebellion in Iran in 1946. Truman was furious about Stalin’s betrayal. Americans grew distrustful of the Soviets and began to worry that the USSR intended to spread communism to the Middle East. […]

WWII put the U.S. in a new and unfamiliar role. Having previously chosen to remain relatively isolated, America was now cast as a world leader. American leaders quickly realized that a plan was required to address the Soviet Union. George F. Kennan was a brilliant U.S. diplomat and an expert on the Soviet Union. In 1946, he was stationed in Moscow, and the State Department asked him to clarify recent Soviet conduct. The world had never seen a threat like communism or a nation that behaved as the Soviet Union did, and the West was confused about how to address these issues. Kennan was one of the few western experts on the Soviet Union, and he was essentially tasked with creating a policy that would be used to deal with the Soviet threat.

Kennan drafted his response to the State Department in a telegram in February 1946. His reply was 8,000 words and contained significant coverage of the issue. The length and breadth of his reply earned it the nickname the “Long Telegram.” He painstakingly covered the history of the USSR and how it had shaped current policies. He provided information that helped American leaders gain a greater insight into the background and mentality of Soviets like Stalin. He advised that the USSR was “ruthlessly expansionary” but also cautious. Kennan stated that if left unchecked the Soviets would expand their regime whenever and wherever possible. He also believed that the Soviet Union’s cautious nature allowed the U.S. to avoid actively engaging the Soviets militarily to keep them in check. It was his belief that a policy of “firm and vigilant containment” could control the Soviet threat. Kennan’s telegram helped form the basis of America’s containment policy toward the Soviet Union.

The Truman Doctrine was BORN out of Gog of the land of Magog’s determination to involve itself in the Middle East, a study of history reveals.  It was born out of an American determination to prevent Russia from being allowed to involve itself.  The idea behind the Truman Doctrine was that the United States would go to any length to fight Gog of the land of Magog’s expansion or projection of influence.  Truman also declared, “it must be the policy of the United States to support free people who are resisting attempted subjugation by armed minorities or by outside pressures.”

In 1973 Russia threatened to directly enter into the Middle East during the Yom Kippur War when things went badly for their side.  And the United States of America directly threatened all-out NUCLEAR WAR to tell Gog of the land of Magog that there was NO WAY IN HELL THEY WERE GOING IN THERE.

Russia had allies in the Middle East.  But we largely kept them OUT.  We did not and never would have allowed them to bring in large numbers of troops who would launch airstrikes and armor and infantry attacks – particularly against OUR ALLIES, as Russia just did:

Colossal Stupidity by the US in Syria as Russia Attacks Our Allies
by S. Noble • September 30, 2015

Russia swears they’re attacking Islamic State positions.  But after giving the United States a one-hour window to get out, their aircraft attacked Homs, where the backbone of the anti-Assad rebellion which is allied with the United States, is centered.

Gog of the land of Magog is wiping out the few remaining U.S. allies.  And Obama is passively allowing him to do it.

Another headline even makes it MORE “biblical”:

‘Russia kills US-backed Syrian rebels in second day of air strikes as Iran prepares for ground offensive’

Russia and Iran.  As In Gog of the land of Magog and Persia.  Just as the Word of God declared this alliance would surely happen.

This was UNTHINKABLE ten years ago.  No way IN HELL would the United States have EVER allowed Russia and Iran into the Arab Middle East.

But Lucifer’s pawn is our president now.  And he is the worst fool the human race has ever seen, supported by the worst fools the human race has ever seen.

Remember Obama mocking Mitt Romney because Romney was wise and Obama is a fool?  Obama mocked: “You said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back. Because the Cold War has been over for 20 years.”

Now (apology in advance here) Obama is Putin’s bitch.

There are two wicked entities right now – neither one being more utterly demonic than the other – that have “fundamentally transformed” America’s foreign policy from preventing Armageddon to guaranteeing that Armageddon WILL happen: and that is Islamic State and Barack Hussein Obama.

Islamic State could never have existed in the first place without Barack Hussein Obama.  It barely even existed when Obama arrogantly placed his feet on top of the desk in the Oval Office of the White House.  Just as the vicious civil war that has seen a quarter million Syrian civilians murdered would not have consumed so many lives had Obama not backed down from his “red line” warning like the cowardly, pathetic weasel that he truly is.  In fact Obama began the process that culminated in the current military conquest by Gog of the land of Magog when he apathetically allowed Vladimir Putin to exploit his key ally Assad’s use of weapons of mass destruction against his own people.

Over a year and a half ago, a New Republic article began, “The Obama administration’s foreign policy toward Syria is looking like an unmitigated disaster.”  Millions of refugees fleeing Syria with no place to go later, what in the hell would you call it NOW???  What would you call Obama’s foreign policy now that Russia is the principle power on earth and the weak and irrelevant United States just got ordered to get the hell OUT by Gog of the land of Magog???

It’s not quite enough to point out that ISIS was nothing but a disenfranchised offshoot of the al Qaeda in Iraq THAT WAS DEFEATED BY BUSH:

By the end of 2008 and in the beginning of 2009, President Bush’s surge strategy, led by General Petraeus and General Odierno, now the Chief of Staff of the Army, defeated the al-Qaeda in Iraq.  I saw the transmissions because I was advising Petraeus on the ground in Iraq.  They showed me the transmissions from al-Qaeda that they were intercepting.  They said: ‘We are defeated, don’t send any more foreign fighters.’  So we knew how to deal with this enemy in that category.” — General Jack Keane,  former commander of the 101st Airborne Division, former commander of the XVIII Airborne Corps, i.e. the Rapid Deployment Force, former Vice Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army

It wasn’t just General Keane.  Consider what Vice President Joe Biden declared:

“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.”

It wasn’t just General Keane and Joe Biden.  Consider what Barack Obama declared:

Today, I can announce that our review is complete, and that the United States will pursue a new strategy to end the war in Iraq through a transition to full Iraqi responsibility. […]

This strategy is grounded in a clear and achievable goal shared by the Iraqi people and the American people: an Iraq that is sovereign, stable, and self-reliant.

General David Petraeus and all the key generals were shocked and awed by the profound, demon-possessed STUPIDITY of Barack Obama that guaranteed that the Iraq they had fought to hard to win would fall to the very terrorists they had defeated:

US-IRAQ: Generals Seek to Reverse Obama Withdrawal Decision
By Gareth Porter

WASHINGTON, Feb 2 2009 (IPS) – CENTCOM commander Gen. David Petraeus, supported by Defence Secretary Robert Gates, tried to convince President Barack Obama that he had to back down from his campaign pledge to withdraw all U.S. combat troops from Iraq within 16 months at an Oval Office meeting Jan. 21.

But Obama informed Gates, Petraeus and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen that he wasn’t convinced and that he wanted Gates and the military leaders to come back quickly with a detailed 16-month plan, according to two sources who have talked with participants in the meeting.

Obama’s decision to override Petraeus’s recommendation has not ended the conflict between the president and senior military officers over troop withdrawal, however. There are indications that Petraeus and his allies in the military and the Pentagon, including Gen. Ray Odierno, now the top commander in Iraq, have already begun to try to pressure Obama to change his withdrawal policy.

A network of senior military officers is also reported to be preparing to support Petraeus and Odierno by mobilising public opinion against Obama’s decision.

Petraeus was visibly unhappy when he left the Oval Office, according to one of the sources. A White House staffer present at the meeting was quoted by the source as saying, “Petraeus made the mistake of thinking he was still dealing with George Bush instead of with Barack Obama.”

Petraeus, Gates and Odierno had hoped to sell Obama on a plan that they formulated in the final months of the Bush administration that aimed at getting around a key provision of the U.S.-Iraqi withdrawal agreement signed envisioned re-categorising large numbers of combat troops as support troops. That subterfuge was by the United States last November while ostensibly allowing Obama to deliver on his campaign promise. […]

The opening argument by the Petraeus-Odierno faction against Obama’s withdrawal policy was revealed the evening of the Jan. 21 meeting when retired Army Gen. Jack Keane, one of the authors of the Bush troop surge policy and a close political ally and mentor of Gen. Petraeus, appeared on the Lehrer News Hour to comment on Obama’s pledge on Iraq combat troop withdrawal.

Keane, who had certainly been briefed by Petraeus on the outcome of the Oval Office meeting, argued that implementing such a withdrawal of combat troops would “increase the risk rather dramatically over the 16 months”. He asserted that it would jeopardise the “stable political situation in Iraq” and called that risk “not acceptable”.

Anybody who states that Obama had no choice but to leave Iraq is a fool and a liar.  Just as Obama himself is a fool and a liar.  OBAMA AND OBAMA ALONE decided to cut and run from Iraq AFTER we won the war when there WAS not ONE but SEVERAL ALTERNATIVES to the most literalistic reading of the Status of Forces Agreement that Obama swore tied his hands.  The FACT is that the United States had multiple options that anyone but a FOOL would have pursued: but Obama was and IS a fool and Obama wanted out so he could boast about being the president who brought the troops home.

And LOOK what an unending HOLOCAUST we have across the Middle East to show for this petty man’s arrogant childishness.

It’s not enough to point out that the Obama Administration declared the victory that Bush had won in Iraq where Islamic State now reigns because Obama cut and ran just like General Petraeus and pretty much all decent people feared he would do.  No, we have to go that one step further and point out that Obama actually let the man who truly formed Islamic State into the monster that it is free six years ago.

This is the same Obama who foolishly declared that Islamic State was “JayVee” even as they were seizing cities in Iraq.  And then lied about having done it. Because he’s a lying fool.

Now Obama is absolutely HELPLESS before them and POWERLESS TO STOP THEM and has to plead with his superiors in Russia and Iran to deal with this “JayVee” power.

It might be true that Islamic State is “JayVee,” I suppose, but the United States of America is “PeeWee” under Barack Hussein Obama’s treasonous and cowardly and idiotic and incompetent administration.

All I am saying is that NO TRUE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WOULD EVER HAVE ALLOWED what Obama has treasonously allowed to come to pass by his cowardice and his stupidity and his demonic moral idiocy.

You want to see what Obama has done to “win” the war in Syria?  Some headlines:

Column In Syria: $36 million to train 60 opposition fighters?
Doyle McManus•Contact Reporter
July 12, 2015, 5:00 AM

A little more than a year ago, President Obama asked Congress for $500 million to train and equip some 15,000 opposition fighters in Syria, arguing that the best way to defeat Islamic State terrorists was to arm local forces.

The war against Islamic State “will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil,” Obama promised. “Instead, we must strengthen the opposition as the best counterweight to extremists.”

Last week, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter gave Congress a progress report. The training program is up and running, he said, and almost 7,000 Syrians have applied to join — but the total number of fighters trained comes to exactly 60.

Sixty? UCLA has more men on its football roster. That’s “not an impressive number,” Carter acknowledged.

Skeptics instantly did the arithmetic: If that’s all we get for $500 million, it comes to almost $9 million per fighter — and the trainees haven’t even made it onto the battlefield yet.

But if you think THAT’S pathetic, it actually was even WORSE.  ‘Cause, I mean, don’t knock sixty fighters.  Sixty actual fighters would be an impressive achievement for an idiotic, disgraceful pile of human waste like Barack Hussein Obama.  So when the actual facts came out…

Only handful of U.S.-trained Syrian rebels still fighting: general
WASHINGTON  |  By Phil Stewart
Wed Sep 16, 2015 5:48pm EDT

Only four or five U.S.-trained Syrian rebels are still fighting in Syria, a top U.S. general told Congress on Wednesday, a stark admission of setbacks to a fledgling military program that critics have already pronounced a failure.

The U.S. military began training in May for up to 5,400 fighters a year, in what was seen as a test of President Barack Obama’s strategy of having local partners combat Islamic State militants and keep U.S. troops off the front lines.

But the program was troubled from the start, with some of the first class of less than 60 fighters coming under attack from al Qaeda’s Syria wing, Nusra Front, in their battlefield debut. Some were captured and killed while others scattered.

This is kind of like Obama’s inane oft-repeated boast that he has a coalition of sixty nations.  Because he has a coalition of sixty nations the way he had 15,000 opposition fighters.  Or even SIXTY fighters, for that matter.  Obama’s “coalition” is as much of a sick joke as his shambles of a foreign policy is.

Obama boasts that his “coalition” has flown nearly 7,000 sorties since the start of Obama’s red line warning fiasco three years ago.  Do you know what a joke that is???  Let me put it into perspective: we flew more than 8,000 sorties IN THE FIRST FIVE DAYS of Operation Desert Storm.

When you compare Obama’s war with actual wars that our leaders wanted to truly make any real difference in, Obama becomes a joke.  We averaged 1,100 sorties a day against Iraq in 1991; under Obama it’s a laughable SEVEN sorties a day.

Then factor in that 75% of Obama’s sorties return with all of their weapons, having dropped no bombs and not having fired a damn SHOT.

Which puts Obama’s airstrikes into the laugh-riot of his 4 or 5 fighters.  Who are undoubtedly dead now that Putin is bombing them.

Obama’s mission against Islamic State is designed to FAIL.  It is designed to appear like he’s doing something when he really is doing NOTHING.

If Barack Obama is your ally, YOU ARE A TRUE FOOL.  Anyone, EVERYONE who trusts in Obama deserves to perish miserably.

Obama has been cooking his own intelligence.  All along, this fool – the same fool who ridiculed Islamic State as “JayVee” – has been intentionally minimizing the threat against America, against Israel, against the world.  Now fifty intelligence experts are coming right out and DECLARING it.

Now, anybody who is fool enough or stupid enough or just insane enough to believe that Obama is a man who wants the truth but is being deceived by those under him, I simply point out this: Major Nidal Hasan, the Allahu Akbar-screaming, card-carrying “Soldier of Allah” TERRORIST who murdered American soldiers but was amazingly declared an example of “workplace violence” by a president who is and has always BEEN pathologically dishonest about being honest about terrorists and terrorism.  We have now seen DOZENS of examples of OBVIOUS terrorism being declared anything but by this lying fool president.  There is no question that his top brass was ordered to produce the “proof” that Obama wanted – and the fact that Obama’s “proof” is a mountain of lies is irrelevant to anyone but the few who still care about “truth” in this postmodern and post-Christian planet.

The Obama presidency is an eight-year experiment in treason against the United States of America as the basis of a foreign policy.

But 2,600 years ago, God foreknew that there would be an utterly useless turd in the White House, and that this useless turd would allow a terrorist army to rise into the status of creating the very first terrorist caliphate in history.  And that Russia would see the opening and come in much the way a fish sees the bait on a line and swoops in.

Anyone who isn’t a fool can see Vladimir Putin’s end game: he is in Syria right now destroying all of the U.S.-backed rebels who were a threat to the regime of Putin’s Syrian ally Assad.  And after Putin has wiped out the resistance, there will be only Assad and Islamic State left, and Putin will argue that we must support his ally Assad.  That’s what brought Putin into Syria, THAT was the hook God put in Russia’s jaw: the opportunity to essentially take over the influence in the Middle East that the United States had and abandoned and that Russia wanted but had always been shut-out by a too-powerful United States.  At least until Obama the fool came along to create a giant vacuum of leadership and invite in what all previous presidents would have gone to war to keep out.

Armageddon IS going to happen now.  Democrats voted for it, just as much as they will surely one day soon vote to take the Antichrist’s mark on their right hands or on their foreheads.

You go ahead and mock me, but one day you’ll be taking that mark on your OWN right hand or forehead as you worship the beast that is the face of human Government in defiance of the One True God.

 

 

 

 

Neville Chamberlain Strategy: Obama Fighting WWII All Over Again By Giving Up Czechoslovakia (Georgia) And Then Poland (Ukraine)

March 25, 2014

Was Russia’s seizure of Ukraine’s territory (Crimea) a big deal?

The NATO Secretary-General thinks it is:

(CNSNews.com) – Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine and annexation of its Crimea region is “the most serious security crisis since the end of the Cold War,” NATO secretary-general Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Wednesday.

“We have seen Russia rip up the international rule book,” Rasmussen told an audience at Georgetown University in Washington DC. “Trying to redraw the map of Europe, and creating in just a few weeks the most serious security crisis since the end of the Cold War.”

The only real country left in Europe thinks that it is:

The Ukraine crisis is the worst in Europe since the fall of the Berlin Wall and diplomacy is now essential to avoid military escalation, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said on Monday.

Russia’s intervention means “the threat of a division of Europe is real again,” Steinmeier said as he arrived for an emergency meeting of EU foreign ministers.

This ought to be a much worse crisis – and a much bigger deal – than it actually is: because the fact of the matter is that we signed a treaty to protect Ukraine and to keep this very thing from happening.  And we are more obviously weaker now than we have ever been now that we have dishonored ourselves by abandoning our commitment.

Every nation on earth will start to scramble to acquire nuclear weapons to protect their borders and there will be NOTHING we can do to persuade them to give up those weapons.  Because we have now proven that our word is no good and we will ultimately renege on whatever we promise we’re going to do.

This is a crisis that will continue to build and build long after Ukraine leaves the media’s ADD-style attention span.  You know, while the mainstream liberal media is micro-fixated on that Malaysian airliner that nobody has any idea whatsoever happened to.

But please don’t think Barack Obama did anything stupid while all this was going on: he still spent his usual countless hours formulating his NCAA brackets.

Of course the same Democrats who had demonized George Bush just for playing golf while there was a war going on only to hypocritically shrug their shoulders while Barack Obama has played more than seven times more golf than Bush did (164 rounds compared to Bush’s 24).

I noted in my obtaining of the above facts on presidential golf that the U.S. media that criticized Bush so heavily for golfing have been strangely silent about Obama’s “love for the game.”  It has been the FOREIGN media that has attacked Obama for his golfing as the classic evidence of an absentee president who fiddles around on the golf course while the world is burning.

When we compare Vladimir Putin to Barack Obama we get a bare-chested man riding a stallion compared to a weasel-thin, dumbo-eared metrosexual riding a bicycle while wearing mom jeans and a geeky helmet.

And don’t think the world – and particularly all of our enemies – haven’t noticed what the man who has gutted the American military is: weak.

I have on numerous occasions compared Barack Obama to Neville Chamberlain.  Chamberlain was, like Obama, a ruthless tyrant when it came to domestic policy.  Because of the power of his office, he could simply dictate.  And dictate he did.

But when it came to dealing with aggressive and even hostile foreign governments, the world sat in stunned horror as Chamberlain proved himself to be an empty suit.  He couldn’t dictate to Hitler with an executive order.  So he did nothing while Hitler grew stronger and stronger and bolder and bolder and more and more aggressive.  Until it took a war to stop him.

That’s where we’re at now.

Democrats want to tell us that Putin invaded Georgia and seized their territory when Bush was president.  And that is true.  But please consider two things that make that meaningless: 1) George Bush TRIED to avert the Russian seizure of Georgia in April of 2008 when he proposed that Georgia AND UKRAINE be allowed into NATO.  That move would have stopped Putin dead in his tracks.  Don’t tell me that Bush didn’t wisely see what completely blindsided Obama coming.  But weak, cowardly, gutless liberalism is weak, cowardly, gutless liberalism both here and in Europe.  And liberals wouldn’t tolerate such a “provocative move.”  Oh, no.  The spirit of Obama is the spirit of weakness and appeasement.  If we bare our throats and demonstrate to our enemies by our nakedness that we are not a threat, their reasoning goes, we will avert war and live in a Utopia of peace and harmony.  You’re seeing more of the same as we speak with Obama’s giveaway of the internet to countries that are hostile to us.  And 2) Putin seized Georgia with less than three months left in Bush’s presidency – and you tell me if you have any honesty whatsoever what Democrats would have done had Bush moved aggressively to respond to Putin after Obama and Democrats had spent basically eight years demonizing him as a warmonger.

What was Obama’s response to Putin over Georgia once he got into office?  Did he stand up to Putin?  Did he push for the rest of Georgia not yet seized and Ukraine that had not yet had its territory seized to become part of NATO like Bush had done?  Nope.  He was pretty good at spending time with his NCAA brackets between rounds of golf then, too.

Bush TRIED to solve the problem in Georgia and Ukraine before either happened.  What did Obama do???

In fact what Obama did was issue his infamous “reset” button with Russia.  He and Hillary Clinton, being as incompetent as they are morally stupid, botched that horribly, of course.  But it sent a crystal-clear message to Putin: America under Obama is weak.  They will let me get away with murder.  And so murder I will.

More evidence (and more conservatives who saw Putin’s aggression coming): Sarah Palin:

Remember what a bimbo the mainstream media made Sarah Palin out to be (remember, it’s OKAY to trivialize a woman as long as it’s liberals doing it to a conservative).

But in 2008, Sarah Palin predicted something in which she turned out to be right and every liberal on earth turned out to be a morally idiotic jackass.

She predicted that if coward and fool Barack Obama were elected president, it would embolden Russia into invading Ukraine given the kind of idiocy and naïve weakness he displayed when Putin invaded Georgia:

“After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.”

Of course, the mainstream media savaged her for that.  What else is their mission if not a fools’ mission???

And Mitt Romney:

In their third presidential debate, President Obama ridiculed Mitt Romney when he said that Russia remained a threat to the United States. Here’s what Obama said in the debate:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: “Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaida’s a threat because a few months ago when you were asked, what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia — not al-Qaida, you said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.

But, Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s. You say that you’re not interested in duplicating what happened in Iraq, but just a few weeks ago you said you think we should have more troops in Iraq right now.“And the — the challenge we have — I know you haven’t been in a position to actually execute foreign policy, but every time you’ve offered an opinion, you’ve been wrong.”

Here’s how Mitt Romney responded. Notice how Obama tries to cut Romney off before he can make his point:

MR. ROMNEY: I’ll respond to a couple of the things you mentioned. First of all, Russia, I indicated, is a geopolitical foe, not —

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Number one —

MR. ROMNEY: Excuse me. It’s a geopolitical foe. And I said in the same . . . paragraph, and Iran is the greatest national security threat we face. Russia does continue to battle us in the U.N. time and time again. I have clear eyes on this. I’m not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia or Mr. Putin, and I’m certainly not going to say to him, I’ll give you more flexibility after the election. After the election he’ll get more backbone.

Mitt Romney didn’t have “rose-colored glasses” when it came to Russia and Putin.  History records that Barack Obama had the most asinine-looking rose-colored glasses ever devised when it came to them.  And Democrats have the naked dishonesty to stupidly try to argue that nobody could have seen Putin’s seizure of Ukraine coming.

And, oh, yeah, that “flexibility” thing.  Remember that?

How did I title my article on that one?  “Traitor-in-Chief Barack Obama Caught Red-Handed On Tape Playing Naked Politics With Critical National Security

Obama’s open-mic moment with Russia:

Obama: This is my last election…After my election I have more flexibility.

Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir

And what do we have now?  The “worst crisis since the end of the Cold War” being played out after Obama has “more flexibility” to appease our enemy whom Obama went very much on the record to say was NOT our enemy at all.

How “flexible” are you feeling now, I wonder, Obama, you jackass?

So here’s the deal now that Obama has pulled America’s pants down and bent over for Russia and begged to have our national security and our prestige butt-raped: just like in World War II, we’re going to have to fight a world war to get our prestige that our weak, cowardly, gutless puke pissed away.

Obama’s “strategy” – if you could call his doing nothing a “strategy” – is this: where the world became outraged after Hitler’s second violation of a sovereign nation, what if instead of fighting the world had done NOTHING?  What if we’d just allowed Hitler to have what he wanted and not do anything about it?

You see, THAT’S “peace” to a liberal.  There is no war because we won’t fight.  No matter what.  And no matter what Hitler – or Putin – or any other thug does, we won’t fight.  So we have “peace.”

Here’s the really funny thing about this: I’ve been reading liberals’ op-eds on this Russia-Ukraine thing, and the consistent theme is that Republicans don’t really have a solution now, either.  So you can’t blame Obama for being weak because Republicans don’t want to go to war, either.

DAMN THESE PEOPLE ARE PATHOLOGICALLY DISHONEST.

Here’s the simple fact: as I already documented above, the “Republican response” would have begun going on six years ago back when we truly could have DONE something short of going to world war three.  The “Republican response” would have began with Sarah Palin’s wisdom – and then after that Mitt Romney’s wisdom – that Russia and Putin were true threats.  Which is something our failed Disgrace-in-Chief STILL doesn’t understand.

The “Republican response” would have been NOT to gut America’s military so that we are clearly too damn weak to do a damn thing about much of anything.  That probably would have stopped Putin right there.

The “Republican response” would have been to follow through on what Bush started and LEAD by insisting that Georgia and Ukraine become protected by NATO membership.  That DEFINITELY would have stopped Putin.

We never would have BEEN in this situation had there actually been a “Republican response.”

There comes a point when idiots have so destroyed something that it cannot be made right again.  And don’t try “spin” reality such that Republicans who CLEARLY saw this disaster coming and SAID it was coming wouldn’t have done anything different to avert it.

Now the same media that literally mocked Sarah Palin for seeing the Russian threat and mocked Mitt Romney for “stealing a [functioning] national security policy from the 1980s is dishonestly trying to say that Republicans should have to fix the world that Obama has damn-near singlehandedly broken beyond repair.

Remember Obama boasting of how he would restore America’s prestige?  Where is it now after Obama has repeatedly issued “red line” warnings and then done NOTHING and countries like Russia push us around like we’re the pussies that we have become under Obama?

It aint over.  Putin gave a speech justifying what he did in Crimea by talking about his duty to protect ethnic Russians wherever they may be.  And the thing is that following the collapse of the former Soviet Union – whose territory Putin wants to reclaim for Mother Russia – there are “ethnic Russians” all OVER the place.

Putin gave himself the carte blanche right to invade and seize virtually every single country in eastern Europe.

And now he’s massing Russian troops in a very possible move to invade Ukraine and seize the rest of it.

And Obama has already promised that there is no possible way that he will respond militarily.  Because he is a weak and stupid man who lays all his cards down on the table to make sure his enemies know his vulnerabilities in advance.

You wonder what Hitler would have done had Neville Chamberlain said, “Do whatever you want.  I won’t stop you.”  Probably nothing good.

Here’s one on that: Vladimir Putin has built his new hegemony primarily upon his exporting of Russian oil and natural gas and his ability to shut the tap on any European state that would oppose him.  What has Barack Obama done to counter this hegemony?  Has he promised to increase American oil and natural gas exports and essentially taken Putin’s power away without firing a shot?  That would counter his “oil is evil” philosophy, wouldn’t it?  And so while Putin is lording it over Europe and Europe is cowed into refusing to go along with any tough sanctions against Russia as a consequence, Obama STILL won’t allow the Keystone oil pipeline which he has kept shut down for YEARS.

This isn’t even about going to war – although Obama was nothing short of a FOOL to simply take war completely off the table and signal Putin his abject weakness in advance – it’s about simple reality and Obama’s inability to understand it.  OIL IS REALITY; Obama’s alternative energy is magical unicorn fairy dust.  Obama’s refusal to harness reality makes him a weak fool.

Meanwhile, China, which like Russia and very much unlike America has also been strengthening its military, ALSO has territorial ambitions.  Because weakness is the ultimate provocation.

And like Russia, they know we will do NOTHING.

World War II was the result of European and American weakness.  World War III will result from the same liberal weakness in Europe and America.

And you can lay the blame for that coming global war ENTIRELY on Obama’s and the Democrat Party’s feat.

A nation that allows tyrants to become emboldened has a death wish.  And America proved that it has a death wish when it stupidly elected and then even more stupidly re-elected Barack Obama.

I have long marveled at the precision of Bible prophecy in the last days.  The Bible rightly predicted that Israel would miraculously and against all odds be regathered as a nation.  It foresaw the rise of Russia as a world power which it had never been in history.  It described a last days confederation of countries led by Russia and Iran (Persia) that EXACTLY matches the Islamic states relative to their enmity to Israel today.  It anticipated the coming together of a European union which had never in history happened.  It knew that one day China and the kings of the east would be able to assemble an army of 200 million soldiers when at the time the prophecy was given there weren’t two-hundred million human beings on the entire planet.

The Bible prophecies all of these things and many, many others which have come to pass in these the last days of human history before the coming of the Beast.

But it never once mentions America.

That used to bother me greatly: how could it be that the mightiest nation in the history of the world isn’t even mentioned in Bible prophecy?

The answer is terrifying: the United States isn’t mentioned because it either won’t exist at all – having catastrophically imploded – or it will be so weak and so irrelevant that it won’t matter at all in the last days.

When you voted for “God damn America,” you voted to go extinct like the Dodo bird.

In the end, a leader will come in fulfillment of every Democrat’s and every liberal’s and every socialist’s fondest dreams.  His government will so take over the world that literally no one will be able to buy or sell anything without the government’s approval.  He will promise a Utopia but deliver the whole world into hell on earth.

And Barack Obama – along with the Democrat Party and everyone who supports them – is his useful idiot.

You won’t be able to stop him politically because Democrats and liberals all over the world will vote for him.  You won’t be able to fight him because liberals will take away all of your guns.

The coming of Antichrist and his mark of the beast didn’t have to happen, but the God who knows the end from the beginning knew 2,000 years ago – knew in fact before the foundation of the world – that the terminal generation of Americans would be a stupid and depraved one.

 

 

Iran, Iraq, and the Future in Bible Prophecy

June 24, 2009

The huge demonstrations protesting the election issues in Iran put that country on the front pages of every newspaper.

For nearly two weeks, demonstrations have raged.  Early on, some said that they didn’t know what would happen as to whether the protests would succeed in overthrowing the regime, but most recognized that the endgame was a foregone conclusion: the regime has the tanks, the guns, and the military.  It was only a question as to whether how far things might get before they used them.

As it stands, they won’t have to, as an AP article entitled “Intensified crackdown mutes protests in Iran” indicates.  While the demonstrations might well briefly flare up again (presidential candidate Mousavi has said he would appear at a demonstration on the 24th), there has never been any serious question that the theocratic regime would stand.

The serious question that remains is, stand as what?  Will it become a more open society, more willing to seriously interact with the Western world, or will it become more hostile and more determined to pursue a violent agenda in the coming months?

Based on the prophecies in the Bible, and based on my own belief that we are entering the last days, my view is that Iran will become more hostile and violent as it is increasingly isolated in the Western world.  Furthermore, my view is that it will engage in an increasingly close alliance/partnership with Russia and with other Islamic Arab and African states.

It is important to realize that the Iranian Constitution (Article Five) is inherently apocalyptic in nature.  The still-revered Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979 proclaimed that the basis for Iran’s constitution and its government would be the authority of the Hidden (or Twelfth) Imam.  This apocalyptic figure has been called the ‘expected one,’ (al—Muntazar), the ‘promised one’ (al—Mahdi’), or the ‘hidden one,’ (al—Mustatir) in the Shi’a tradition.

The threats of impending destruction of Israel and even of war against the United States have been issued in the name of this Twelfth Imam who will (according to Iranian/Shi’a Islam) come in the last days.

According to the tradition, the Hidden Imam was taken into hiding by Allah and kept there until he reappears in the last days to purify the umma and take the world for Islam.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and many others in the Iranian leadership passionately hold to the coming of the Hidden Imam.  That in itself is not necessarily frightening: Shi’ite orthodoxy has it that humans are powerless to encourage the Twelfth Imam to return.  However, in Iran a group called the Hojjatieh believe that humans can stir up chaos and violence to encourage him – even force him – to return.  And Ahmadinejad is at least a former member, and quite likely a current member of this sect.  When Ahmadinejad became president, $17 million was spent on the Jamkaran mosque, which is central to the Hojjatieh movement.  And it is even more frightening when such a man sitting as President of Iran claims to have a direct link to God.

And Dr. Serge Trifkovic has said this regarding Ahmadinejad’s theology/eschatology:

Ahmadinejad, by contrast, shares with Trotsky an apocalyptic world outlook. He favors direct action in pursuit of a permanent Islamic revolution that will pave the way for the return of the Hidden Imam, pave it with blood, sweat and tears. Indeed he’d like to speed things up, as you point out, and implicitly he hopes to achieve this by twisting the arm of the Almighty – no less so than the cloners of red heifers and would-be re-builders of the Temple hope to do as a means of speeding up the Rupture. The fact that he is more sincere in his beliefs and more earnest in his endeavors than the kleptocrats of the House of Saud are in theirs, is alarming but unsurprising. He is a visionary; they are Machiavellian cynics.

A much-more detailed analysis that comes to much the same conclusion about Ahmadinejad’s apocalyptic vision is available via FrontPage Magazine.

Mind you, re-building the Temple or cloning a red heifer are scarcely the source of inherently cataclysmic activities that many too many Shiite Muslims are pursuing.

So when one considers Iran, under such leadership, to be dedicated to the acquisition of nuclear weapons after stating that Israel should be “wiped out from the map” – and with the current Ayatollah Khamenei stating that Israel is a “cancerous tumor” on the verge of collapse – well, one should be very worried.  Wiping out Israel in a fiery blaze of atomic glory would indeed be a way to create the holocaust that would prompt the return of the long-awaited Hidden Imam (if anything ever could).

Clearly Jews understand this, as 1 in 4 would seriously consider leaving the country if Iran succeeds in acquiring nuclear weapons.  Given that such an event would literally mean the end of the state of Israel even if Iran didn’t nuke them, Israel has little choice but to attack Iran’s nuclear capability (since – clearly – no one else will).

Would Israelis hold back from a planned attack of Iran if they believed the United States would prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons?  Probably.  But the problem is, they clearly don’t believe that any more.  And they certainly no longer believe that America under Barack Hussein Obama is on their side.  When George Bush was president, fully 88% of Israeli Jews believed the president was “pro-Israel”; today under Obama, only 31% of Israeli Jews think so.

Such an event, of hated Israel swooping into an Islamic country to destroy their Russian-built nuclear facilities, would itself be a likely cataclysmic event.  Do you even dare to imagine how the Islamic world would react?  And realize that just such an event is very likely coming – and coming all-too soon.

Now Vice President Joe Biden predicted that Barack Obama would be “tested” by an “international crisis” that would test his mettle.  He went on to say:

I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, ‘Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?’ We’re gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I’m asking you now, I’m asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you’re going to have to reinforce us.”“There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision’,” Biden continued. “Because if you think the decision is sound when they’re made, which I believe you will when they’re made, they’re not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they’re popular, they’re probably not sound.”

Joe Biden quickly turned his discussion of this international crisis and Barack Obama’s seeming poor handling of said crisis to politics and the hopes of Democrats.  But Iran obtaining nuclear weapons won’t be about politics; it will be about Armageddon.

Frighteningly, Barack Obama’s very own VP has said that Barack Obama is most certainly not ready for what may very well prove to be the most terrifying crisis in human history:

“There has been no harsher critic of Barack Obama’s lack of experience than Joe Biden,” McCain spokesman Ben Porritt said in a written statement, according to CNN. “Biden has denounced Barack Obama’s poor foreign policy judgment and has strongly argued in his own words what Americans are quickly realizing — that Barack Obama is not ready to be president.”

Biden frequently raised questions about Obama’s lack of foreign policy experience during the primaries. “I think he can be ready, but right now, I don’t believe he is,” Biden said during one debate. “The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.”

North Korea looms large, and may loom far larger in the days soon-to-come.  But a nuclear Iran is an even more terrifying prospect.  You’ll see.

As I turn to Iraq – and then to how Iraq relates to Iran in the context of Bible prophecy – allow me to first discuss Joel Rosenberg.

A Wikipedia article on Joel Rosenberg probably provides the most concise summary (accessed June 23, 2009):

Rosenberg’s novels have attracted those interested in Bible Prophecy, due to several of his fictional elements of his books that would occur after his writing of books. Nine months before the September 11th attacks, Rosenberg wrote a novel with a kamikaze plane attack on an American city. Five months before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, he wrote a novel about war with Saddam Hussein, the death of Yasser Arafat eight months before it occurred, a story with Russia, Iran, and Libya forming a military alliance against Israel occurring the date of publishing,[7] the rebuilding of the city of Babylon,[12] Iran vowing to have Israel “wiped off the face of the map forever” five months before Iranian President Ahmadinejad said the same,[13] and the discovery of huge amounts of oil and natural gas in Israel (which happened in January 2009).[14] The U.S. News & World Report have referred to him as a “Modern Nostradamus,”[15] although Rosenberg tries to play down those proclamations, stating that “I am not a clairvoyant, a psychic, or a ‘Modern Nostradamus,’ as some have suggested.”[16] He gives the credit for his accurate predictions to studying Biblical prophecy and applying to the modern world.[16]

Why did Rosenberg predict that there would be a “kamikaze plane attack on an American city” by Islamic terrorists?  Because he accurately understood the evil at the heart of Islam.

Why did Rosenberg predict a war between Saddam Hussein and the United States resulting in the overthrow of Saddam and his brutal regime?  That’s where it gets interesting.

Joel Rosenberg had done a thorough study of the Book of Ezekiel and of the Bible (as a couple of overlapping articles summarize – Article 1; – Article 2).  He learned that one day, according to the Bible, a massive army under the leadership of Russia and many of its former republics (Magog) and Iran (Persia) and consisting of many countries that are today Islamic [e.g. “Cush” (modern-day Sudan and Ethiopia); “Put” (modern-day Libya); “Gomer” (modern-day Turkey); “Beth-togarmah” (modern-day Armenia); and many peoples “along the mountains of Israel” (modern-day Lebanon and possibly Syria)] would form an “exceedingly great army” that would one day attack Israel.

What Rosenberg noted was the absence of two countries: Egypt and Babylon (i.e. Iraq).  Egypt had been a perennial enemy of Israel until 1973, when Egypt alone in all the Arab/Muslim world forged a historic peace treaty with the state of Israel.  That left Iraq.  Rosenberg asked himself, “How could a nation like Iraq, under the leadership of someone like Saddam Hussein, NOT participate in this mega-colossal-last-days attack on Israel?

Rosenberg concluded that Saddam Hussein WOULDN’T refrain from such an attack.  And that meant that Saddam Hussein would have to go.

And so, NINE MONTHS before the 9/11 attack, Rosenberg in his “fiction” created a scenario in which terrorists flew a plane in a kamikaze attack, and the United States took out the Iraqi regime and replaced it with a stable Western-friendly government.

And because the Bible is the true Word of an all-knowing God who knows the end from the beginning as revealed through His prophets, the scenario laid out by Joel Rosenberg turned out to be eerily true.  It wasn’t a “lucky guess”; it was based upon the God who had revealed the last days to an inspired prophet named Ezekiel some 2,600 years ago.

Thus we have Iraq, its tyrant who had filled mass graves with the bodies of at least 400,000 of his own people, overthrown and a stable democracy growing in his place.  And we have Iran, a country strongly allied with Russia; a country bent on acquiring nuclear weapons; a country that has announced its intent on the destruction of Israel; a country under the leadership of men who in all likelihood believe in establishing a future by an act of violent apocalypse.  Two countries on two very different paths.  And both paths known to God 2,600 years ago.
