Eschatology and Double Cross

This is a very good article! We will do well to keep this truth -taken from it- in the forefront of our minds when approaching all things political and social –

While Jesus was born into a politically-charged environment, He would not enter the political arena or reduce His message to something that could be identified with a political party. The New Testament restricts its comments on political activity to understanding the prophetic significance of such events and to pray for those in authority lest they be influenced by things more sinister.

For how many leaders have we voted for thinking more of them than we should, how many ministers, evangelists and prophets also, all proving to be something opposite from what they spoke? How many more times will we be taken in this same way?

Lots of good information here –  🙂

Eschatology and Double Cross

“The Theology of Disillusionment”

by James Jacob Prasch

In the aftermath of the Hasmonean Period in the century before the birth of Jesus, Israel quickly degenerated from the spiritual revival of the Maccabees and the national resurgence that followed to causing itself to being sucked in to a bad deal that had tremendous religious and political ramifications. Her own leaders entered into a treaty, trusting people who should never have been trusted because they looked to man instead of to God. Part of their motives were economic and strategic in terms of their national security. There were also elements of cultural leanings towards Rome as their had been towards Greece before the Maccabees. At the time of the Roman triumvirate, the Roman general Pompei arrived from Rome offering Israel the protection of the Roman Empire and economic advantage. The spiritual corruption of the Levitical priesthood, and what emerged as the Sanhedrin, predisposed the national leadership to enter into a concordant not ordained of God. At one point the High Priest, John Huricanus, had himself proclaimed king, violating the Scriptural prohibition that a king must be a descendant of David from the tribe of Judah while the High Priest had to be a descendant of Aaron from the tribe of Levi. The Levitical priesthood became a political monarchy in a union of what in modern terms we would call “church and state”, that God’s Word prohibited even in the Old Testament. As Rome’s sphere of power blossomed and new potential threats bloomed, Israel’s leaders, both religious and political, with popular backing of much of the public, pressed for the protection of Rome. Plainly, Israel had forgotten the lessons of Isaiah 30-31 during the reign of Hezekiah when God castigated those pressing Judah to seek protection against Assyria from Egypt.

No sooner had Israel agreed to become a protectorate when Pompei entered the holy city of Jerusalem and marched into the Temple, trespassing into the Holy of Holies. When anyone other than the High Priest on the Day of Atonement (”Yom Kippur“) entered the Holy of Holies, it is a type of the Antichrist (Daniel 9:27; Daniel 11:31; Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14; Luke 21:20; 2 Thessalonians 2:4). Israel feared another Antiochus Epiphanes from whom the Maccabees led their liberation from, defiling God’s Temple, so they looked to Rome. Instead Rome defiled it to their national shock and dismay. They had not only been betrayed by Rome, but by their religious and national leaders. Ultimately, however, in actual fact the majority of people betrayed themselves. The very thing they tried to prevent with their own devices they foolishly caused to happen.

Not only was the Temple defiled by Pompei, but instead of being a protectorate they found themselves a Roman colony governed by mad emperors from abroad and by Roman surrogates locally. This period saw the rise of two major types of the Antichrist: one was Caesar Augustus (formally the General Octavius of the Battle of Actium), and the other Herod the Great. While other emperors had been deified posthumously by the Roman senate, Caesar Augustus, who was emperor when Christ was born, was proclaimed to be a god in his lifetime. And with his census recorded in the nativity narrative of Luke’s Gospel, assigned numbers to people when Christ came the firs time in order to maintain economic control of most of the known world. Herod the Great was a Nabatean of Idumean ethnicity who was culturally Roman but who had embraced Judaism for political purposes much like all Texas politicians are “born again” at election time in the modern world, or as all unionist politicians are good Protestants at election time in Northern Ireland, or as all Irish or Italian politicians are good Catholics when they are running for office in Boston or Chicago.

Herod personifies the beast of Daniel that reappears in Revelation 12 trying to kill the baby coming out of the woman, and when the baby is raptured in the divine rescue kills the rest of her offspring. (Rev. 12:1-5, 17) Pompei, Caesar Augustus, and Herod were one Antichrist after another, much as their will be many Antichrists before the ultimate Antichrist and Jesus’ coming again. There will be another Pompei who will enter the Holy of Holies in the character of Antiochus IV. There will be another Caesar Augustus who will number people to maintain full financial and economic control. (Rev. 13) And as Revelation 12 tells us, there will be another Herod. These are complex typologies that will be explored in greater depth in our forthcoming book on the Antichrist. However, the message and pattern is clear.

By Jesus’ day there was a Temple to Caesar Augustus at Caesarea Philippi on the ruins of the ancient temple of Pan where Jesus gave His declaration of Himself being the Rock in Matthew 16. This was on the lower ridge of Mt. Hermon towering over Galilee below. In Jerusalem the Fortress Antonio overshadowed the Temple and Temple Mount itself with its eagles, symbols not only of Pagan Rome but Pagan Rome’s dominion over the house of God eclipsing the heart and soul of the people of God and their identity as a nation in a covenant relationship with the One True God. It was quite a mess, but in the final analysis it was largely a mess of their own making.

It is of little surprise that on February 1, 2010 Prime Minister Berlusconni of Italy arrived in Jerusalem. Breaking with the left-wing socialists who dominate the European Union, Mr. Berlusconni, despite being immersed in a series of financial and political scandals, remains an outspoken friend of the USA, a critic of Islamic culture and civilization (which he has compared to Communism as a deficient entity that must be defeated and that will fall in the squalor of its own depravity) and has consistently been a vocal supporter of Israel. Upon arrival in Jerusalem Mr. Berlusconni announced his plans to push for Israel membership into the European Union. Meanwhile the Vatican in Rome remains consistent in posturing itself to play a role in brokering a Middle East peace based on some kind of internationalization of Jerusalem in a climate where the pope seeks to regain the cloak he inherited from the Pagan emperors of Rome as Pontiff.

As we have explained multiple times in our recorded material, the emperors bore the religious title of “Pontificus Maximus” (the Great Bridge Builder between and among faiths) as head of Rome’s Pantheon; again in a marriage of church and state. A political figure wants to draw Israel into a revived Roman Empire while a religious one wants to be the bridge between Judaism, Christendom, and Islam. To those who understand Scripture and understand history in light of Scripture, the prophetic implications of these events are evident. At the very least they demonstrate a trend that is plainly of eschatological consequence. The prophet Daniel tells us that the Antichrist (akin to Pompei) will deceive Israel into making a treaty, break it, and betray them, leaving them not merely disillusioned, but devastated.

America and Israel have labored for decades to shift a normally pro-Arab Europe towards one more favorable to Israel at a time when grass root reactions to growing Islamic radicalism are mounting in Britain and Holland, and incipiently in Italy, Germany, and France. Meanwhile the Israeli left of the Labor Party coalition are dominated by socialists such as Simon Peres and other members of Socialist International who are natural bedfellows to the socialist eurocracy of Brussels and the so-called quartet mediary Tony Blair who is a member of the Bilderbergers and who converted to Roman Catholicism without gravitating into the fanciful speculations of conspiracy theorists.

It is obvious the stage is being set for something to happen that will not be simply politically transforming, but theologically stupendous. When and how this will happen we can only speculate, and again it is imperative that we avoid the wild conjectures of lunatic fringe conspiracy theorists, including those who combine conspiracy theories with their particular interpretations of End Times prophecy. What is also imperative, however, is that we recognize that these events are indeed lining up with End Times prophecy. As always the early trends are brought, but at some point they become specific and defined. Betrayal is once again on the horizon. As in the past, it arrives from Rome. As in the past, it is self-afflicted. As in the past, it fulfills the prophecies of Daniel. And as in the past, those people whose hearts and minds are truly the Lord’s, and these alone, will understand. (Daniel 11:33; Daniel 12:3)

To spiritually discern the politics of betrayal, one must understand the theology of betrayal. Whenever a nation or a people, no matter how strong its biblical heritage, stops looking to the living God and looks to man for salvation, they are doomed and they bring the doom on themselves. This is foremost true of God’s own covenant people Israel, but this principle co-equally applies to the Christian church; as the Apostle Paul wrote us, “If God did not spare the natural branches, neither will He spare you“. (Romans 11:21)

Israel’s closest thing to a true friend has been the United States. And this is without doubt one reason God’s judgment has not already fallen on America. (Genesis 12:3) Yet the theology of politics and betrayal abound no less in the USA as they do in Israel and Europe.

Naive Christians heralded Ronald Reagan as a pro-life brother in Christ. In a colossal act of betrayal Reagan appointed pro-abortion judge Sanda Day O’Connor to the Supreme Court. It was O’Connor, a Reagan Republican, who wrote both the Supreme Court’s decision on outlawing the Texas anti-sodomy law which opened the door for states to move towards same-sex marriage with co-equal adoption rights for homosexuals and lesbians to raise up a child to be a homosexual or lesbian, and also authored the decision ordering the Ten Commandments out of the judicial building in Alabama. It was Dwight Eisenhower’s Republican Supreme Court of Earl Warren who ordered God out of the classroom. It was Richard Nixon’s Republican Supreme Court of Warren Burger who ordered God out of the maternity ward with Roe v. Wade. It was Ronald Reagan’s pro-abortion Supreme Court appointee who ordered God out of the courtroom. All the while, naive and undiscerning Christians have swallowed the lie that the Republican Party is more “Christian” than the Democrat Party, when in fact the record proves that it was Republicans who ordered God out of the classroom, the maternity ward, and the court demonstrating categorically and without mitigation that a Republican politician is everything that a Democratic politician is plus a liar on top if it. These are the simple and undeniable facts of history.

It was George W. Bush who first celebrated Ramadan at the White House. The Epistle of 1 John that which denies the Father and Son relationship is by scriptural definition “Antichrist”. Yet George W. Bush placed a copy of the Koran, which states that God has no Son, in the White House in order to honor Islam after September 11th as he continued the express visa program for Saudi Arabians who outlaw the New Testament from even being brought into their country. Somehow one cannot imagine Winston Churchill putting a copy of Mein Kampf in 10 Downing Street after Hilter’s Luftwaffe leveled Coventry and half of Liverpool and London, nor can one imagine even an FDR issuing visas to Japanese Kamikaze pilots after Pearl Harbor. Yet many Evangelical clergymen have lined up in election after election to endorse one Republican candidate after another.

As we speak, Senator Scott Brown, who sensationally won Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in Massachusettes, announced that while he opposed federal funding for abortions, he believes in the right to abort a baby in circumstances where there is no clinical warrant as has the Republican candidate for Senate in Illinois.

While Jesus was born into a politically-charged environment, He would not enter the political arena or reduce His message to something that could be identified with a political party. The New Testament restricts its comments on political activity to understanding the prophetic significance of such events and to pray for those in authority lest they be influenced by things more sinister.

On the left, liberal clergy such as Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Jeremiah Wright, and some would say Rick Warren, endorse Democratic candidates the same as the late Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson endorsed Republicans. This replays the state of Israel in the early 1st Century in terms of corruption of the clergy who misled the people.

Jerry Falwell accepted millions of dollars in contributions from Korean cult leader Sun Yung Moon, who claimed to be the return of Christ in the flesh. Pat Robertson, who has given multiple false prophecies in God’s name, promoted the Toronto Experience and signed Evangelicals and Catholics together, also began a broadcasting ministry of contributions of Christians to preach the Gospel. He and his son then sold it to Rupert Murdoch and pocketed the money to the tune of nearly $1 billion. Jeremiah Wright, the mentor of Barrack Obama preached, “God damn America”, delivered racists pronouncements against white people from the pulpit, and invited Louis Farrakan, a racist Muslim who claims to ride in flying saucers, to preach at his church, which Barrack Obama supported for years with $500 a week tax deductible donations. It was interesting that Obama, on a visit to San Francisco, denounced hunters in Pennsylvania for clinging to their constitutional right to bear arms and to their faith when Obama’s own declared faith is a church where they preach “God damn” the same country of which he wished to be President.

The hypocrisy of politicians is eclipsed only by the hypocrisy of corrupt clergy just the same as we read in the Passion Narratives in the Gospels. Raising millions from corporations and foundations to help disenfranchised urban blacks with his Rainbow Coalition, Baptist minister Jesse Jackson paid a salubrious salary to the mother of a child he adulterously fathered out of wedlock to keep her quiet. In the 1940’s before the era of civil rights and Martin Luther King, when injustices against blacks were easily ten times worse than anything that exists today (particularly in the South), fewer than one in ten black children were born out of wedlock. Today seven out of ten are born out of wedlock. What chance do such poor children have with no father figure? And what chance does black America have when their leader is one of such absent fathers who, moreover, takes money contributed to help poor blacks in order to treat the mother of his love-child as a rich one to buy her silence?

We are again back to the debauchery of the religious system of Second Temple Period Judaism. Call it the “Sanhedrin” or the “World Council of Churches”, call them the “religious right” and the “religious left”, or call them “Pharisees” and “Saduccees”. Today, just as in biblical times, they are six of one and a half dozen of the other. Things have not changed much either in Israel or anywhere in the Judeo-Christian world. The legacy of hypocrisy endures, perpetuated by the lowest form of political slime and beatified by the lowest forms of theocratic scum. That is what it was like in the time of Jesus, and that is precisely what it is like today. How long Christ will tarry we cannot say, and how long His judgment will tarry we cannot say, but they will not tarry forever, of this we may be sure.

Disillusionment and betrayal are pan-historical. Barrack Obama debated Hillary Clinton and promised his supporters “Change” from what things had been under the Bushes and Clintons. Among his first acts after being elected to the presidency was to appoint a Clinton as Secretary of State and to reappoint Bush’s Secretary of Defense after running against the very foreign and defense policies advocated by both Clinton and Bush. The only thing Barrack Obama changed was his socks.

Obama was the lawyer for Acorn that pushed more than any other for sub-prime lending as a “civil right” for minorities. And his Chief of Staff, Rob Immanuel, earned $16 million in the Fanny-Mae/Freddie Mac mortgage fiasco that triggered the present economic crisis. Obama himself received more campaign contributions from Fanny and Freddie than any other member of the Senate except for Chris Dodd, who chaired the committee that exercise oversight over these institutions. It was his fellow Democrat, homosexual Barny Frank, who had a homosexual lover on the board of these institutions, who used his position as Banking Committee chairman to block the caveats being issued of the coming collapse. Sub-prime lending was the brainchild of Jimmy Carter and the darling of the Clintons who expanded it even more than it was of Bush. Yet Obama blames the previous administration for the mess he inherited, when in fact it was a mess he and the members of his administration such as Geithner and Immanuel largely created and profited from. It is little wonder that upon coming to office, he frantically wrote welfare checks for banks allowing them to increase their profits wildly, borrowing money at zero percent interest and lending it out at rates of 5%-8% paying handsome bonuses to kingpins of the banking establishment from where he recruited most of his key staff and cabinet members responsible for economic policy and financial regulation. His left-wing supporters were left stunned.

Obama repeatedly promised that all proposed legislation would be posted on the White House website five days before any vote by Congress. Instead he delivered a 1,300 page intricate and confusing tripling of the national debt to members of the House and Senate at 11 PM the night before the vote demanding it be passed to be sure that unemployment would remain under 8%. Unemployment is now above 10% and in real terms closer to 18%. It was Reagan who tripled the national deficit, then it was George W. Bush who tripled it again. Now Obama has tripled that, threatening the viability of the dollar the future economic sovereignty of the United States.

Many in the business community who supported him like Warren Buffet feel betrayed while one independent economist after another has come to the realization that Obama is an economic madman bent on pistol suicide. The solvency of the government, and a potential run on the dollar, plus a downgrade in the rating of federal adventures have become terrifying prospects under the presidency of someone who is plainly inept, inexperienced, unqualified, and utterly disposed to tell lie after lie. He promised his supporters that he would appoint no lobbyists to positions in his administration, yet he has appointed six including Attorney General Eric Holder.

Editorialists are openly saying that Obama has already become a lame duck whose popularity has declined faster than any other President in modern history. Baring unforeseen events, he is likely to be the next Jimmy Carter, a one-term loser fire from office by the electorate as an incompetent and also to be the next George W. Bush who will leave office without a legacy.

What is important about this for Christians is not the policies or the politics itself, but the manner in which Obama reached a Messianic stature, even being called a political “messiah” by the biased left-wing media. Many Evangelicals overlooked his position on partial-birth abortion and his advocacy of homosexuality and lesbianism to the point of holding gay and lesbian pride picnics on the White House lawn. From Christians in so-called “Emergent” and “Purpose Driven” churches who placed temporal concerns regarding the environment and opinions about social justice on the front-burner and moral issues such as abortion and homosexuality on the back, to Afro-American Pentecostals and Baptists, many Evangelicals were swept up in Obama fever, looking for a political messiah to save America and to save the planet.

Just as Bush and Reagan misled the religious right and left professing Evangelicals disillusioned, those Christians and others who looked to Obama for change are likewise left disillusioned, confused, and arriving at the daunting realization that they have been lied to and betrayed. Once again, however, it is easy to blame politicians who are deceivers by nature and who know how to manipulate with their eloquence and subtlety of the cleverly manufactured lies they fabricate. In the end however, the truth of the matter is the delusion they suffer is one they suffer because they deluded themselves.

Israel is self-deluded, always looking for any Messiah but the true one, from Bar Kochba to Sabbatai Tsvi to Jacob Frank to Menachem Schneerson. They will cheer any messiah except the genuine Messiah Yeshuah. So too the post-Christian, neo-Pagan Protestant world will celebrate the ascendancy of any political messiah to rescue them from their own devices now that they have rejected the True Messiah who can rescue them from their sins.

This ancient disillusionment that always arises from the advent of false messiahs following the rejection of the true one is but a cartoon before the movie. The worst is yet to come. For years we have warned if people cannot see through an obvious false prophet like Pat Robertson, Todd Bentley, or Benny Hinn, there is no way they will see through the False Prophet of Revelation 13.

We must realize that the frenzy generated by Adolph Hitler and Ayatollah Komeini was something that the peoples of Germany and Iran could not see until it was too late. This is the same spirit that propelled Israel to welcome Pompei, and it is the same spirit that propelled America to follow Obama. It always ends in disillusionment and betrayal. For the spirit in back of such phenomena is the spirit of Antichrist. If Germany, a cultural capital of continental Europe at the time could not rightly discern what Hitler was until it was too late and he brought them to destruction, or Italy, the nation of DaVinci, Michaelangelo, and Dante could not discern what Mussolini was until it was too late, and if America, the last remaining super power, could not discern what Obama is, how will they not follow the Beast to come? Satan always manifests himself as Lucifer, an angel of light. So does everyone controlled by the spirit of Antichrist, be it a pope, a Pompei, or an Obama. How easily Israel was deceived. How easily also is the Christian church deceived. Let us, by the grace of God, not be deceived.

With eyes towards heaven, let us remain fixated on the real Christ, that we will not be connived by a false one. Let us not look to Rick Warren’s counterfeit peace plan, but let us rather look to the Prince of Peace. Let us not be captivated by the spirit of Antichrist operating in both the religious and political realm, but let us be filled with the Holy Spirit of Jesus who prepares us for His coming.

WA State University Reports 2000 With Swine Flu

This is absolutely bizarre that so many can be sick so suddenly, and at a time of the year when hardly anyone is sick, much less with the flu. Two thousand cases and school has only been in session for about a week and a half!  We’ve been hearing about this for months and now here it is!  Makes a person wonder, huh?


By LILY FU

About 2,000 students at Washington State University have reported symptoms of swine flu since the fall semester began a week and half ago, representing one of the largest outbreaks of the virus on a U.S. college campus.

“This is really something we haven’t seen before. It’s very unusual to see flu continue to occur over the summer. It’s very unusual to see it start to increase this rapidly in August and September.”

From WH – It’s time for a reality check

I received “It’s time for a reality check” in my e-mail just a few moments ago. I am assuming this is a response to the letter I sent to Pres Obama last week in which I voiced my concern of his request for “snitchery” and of his health care reform proposal I’m sharing  the response written by David Axelrod with you, unread, unresearched by me,  just for the information.

On another note, after sending my same concerns to the governor, 3 senators and 2 reps, and the GOP, I did receive one very nice response from one senator, which assured me the change is for the better. The letter did not specifically address any of my concerns. I got a pat on the back, so to speak from the GOP and an invite to sign up with a user name and password!  I’m going to leave my cynical responses out of this, being that I am more disappointed in the chairman of the GOP than I am the senator!

The problem is not what they are saying now, it’s in what has already been said!!! When the WH is able to put into words that it is not their intention now or in the future to invoke laws the public is now screaming about, those the government call “myths”, then, and only then will their explanations have true weight. That is my reality check for them.

(Sorry, about the formatting – I’m trying to make it better. :))

The White House, Washington

Dear Friend,
Anyone that’s watched the news in the past few days knows that health insurance reform is a hot topic — and that rumors and scare tactics have only increased as more people engage with the issue. Given a lot of the outrageous claims floating around, it’s time to make sure everyone knows the facts about the security and stability you get with health insurance reform.That’s why we’ve launched a new online resource — WhiteHouse.gov/RealityCheck — to help you separate fact from fiction and share the truth about health insurance reform. Here’s a few of the reality check videos you can find on the site:

There’s more information and a number of online tools you can use to spread the truth among your family, friends and other social networks. Take a look:

Health Insurance Reform Reality Check

We knew going into this effort that accomplishing comprehensive health insurance reform wasn’t going to be easy. Achieving real change never is. The entrenched interests that benefit from the status quo always use their influence in Washington to try and keep things just as they are.

But don’t be misled. We know the status quo is unsustainable. If we do nothing, millions more Americans will be denied insurance because of pre-existing conditions, or see their coverage suddenly dropped if they become seriously ill. Out-of-pocket expenses will continue to soar, and more and more families and businesses will be forced to deal with health insurance costs they can’t afford.

That’s the reality.

Americans deserve better. You deserve a health care system that works as well for you as it does for the status quo; one you can depend on — that won’t deny you coverage when you need it most or charge you crippling out-of-pocket co-pays. Health insurance reform means guaranteeing the health care security and stability you deserve.

President Barack Obama promised he’d bring change to Washington and fix our broken, unsustainable health insurance system. You can help deliver that change. Visit WhiteHouse.gov/RealityCheck, get the facts and spread the truth. The stakes are just too high to do nothing.

Thank you,
David

Unemployment at 16.3 Percent!

I posted this in a response to Sandra who comments here quite often.  I think it is important enough to give it its own space. The following was taken from an article written by John Lott, Fox News.com, link follows below.

Guess What?? Unemployment’s Really at 16.3%

The announcement today that the unemployment rate declined slightly to 9.4 percent in July while only 247,000 additional jobs were lost has been greeted as good news.  The change in the unemployment rate puts the rate at what it was in May. Yet, even a rough look at the numbers indicates that the true unemployment rate has been getting significantly worse over the last few months.

How is it possible for the unemployment rate to essentially remain unchanged when 247,000 jobs have been lost?  The reason is simple — the number of people who stopped looking for work rose dramatically.  Six hundred thirty-seven thousand additional people no longer consider themselves looking for work. This is by far the largest drop in the number of people who consider themselves in the labor force during the last year. — It is almost twice the 358,000 increase in the people who left the labor force during June and almost four times the average monthly increase of 167,333 over the last year.  Jobs are sufficiently scarce and the prospects of people finding them at wages that they are willing to work for so low that many individuals don’t think that it is worth their time to even look for a job.

These discouraged workers will again look for work once the economy starts to improve, but this 6.9 percentage point gap between publicly discussed unemployment rate and these discouraged workers is unusually large. (emphasis mine)

Read Article from Fox News Here

Just a side note by me, but what do you think will happen to the unemployment rating when health care is completely taken over and run by the government?  What about all those private insurance carrier jobs?  I’m not talking about the rich people at the top, I am taking about regular working 9-5 types like you and me.  Think about it.

Americans Retaliate Against W.H. Snitcher-y Request

A few days ago I put up an article on the White House request that we turn in fellow Americans for “fishy” health care comments, which is a violation of our first amendment rights. Talk about political incorrectness! You would think the leader of the free world would know better, or maybe he is simply showing his true colors!

I was so steamed that I responded directly to the president, sending him a list of my own concerns and pointing out such a request is a no-no, which I later posted here.   Since then I have been busy e-mailing to the governor, senators and representatives AND the chairman of the GOP, forwarding them my letter to Obama, prefacing with an explanation.  Please, please take a few moments and do the same. Get your voice out there!

I have been hearing on the news that Americans all over are very upset over the health care issue, Obama’s lack of truthfulness, or as he put it “transparency”, and a complete lack of response from government officials who are required to give us straight-forward and truthful answers.  Some may have forgotten but the American government is answerable to it’s citizens.  Instead of providing us with answers we have been branded as trouble makers, some going as far to suggest the questioning is staged.  UNBELIEVABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE.  They do this to get us to shut up and to shut us out.  Don’t fall for it!

I am very happy to find that other Americans have the same view as I and have been making quite a noise!  This is what we need to continue to do. We put them in office by our vote, we pay their salaries by our tax money, that we work hard at our jobs to earn, therefore we need to hold them accountable maybe more now than ever.

Obama ‘Snitch” Program Put On Notice from Worldnet Daily here.

The Center for American Law and Justice or ACLJ, sent a letter to President Obama today, warning, “This citizen reporting program raises significant First Amendment concerns.

An attorney for Red State noted that the White House’s actions may be in violation of current U.S. law:

According to 5 U.S.C. § 552a, United States agencies including the Executive Office of the President shall, ‘maintain no record describing how any individual exercises rights guaranteed by the First Amendment unless expressly authorized by statute or by the individual about whom the record is maintained or unless pertinent to and within the scope of an authorized law enforcement activity.'”

Attorney Eric Erickson noted, “This will be the first significant time the White House has ignored the Privacy Act and may open President Obama up to litigation.” (emphasis mine)

>>So, does Obama not know the law or is he simply ignoring it?  Remember, Notre Dame recently awarded Obama with a bogus law degree.  However, ignorance of the law is not an excuse for breaking it, especially when you own the title of the highest and most powerful in the land.<<

As WND reported, Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, demanded that Obama either halt the program or define how he will protect the privacy of those who send or are the subject of e-mails to the White House.

“I am not aware of any precedent for a president asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White house for pure political speech that is deemed ‘fishy’ or otherwise inimical to the White House’s political interests,” the Texas senator wrote in a letter to Obama.

“By requesting that citizens send ‘fishy’ e-mails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, e-mail addresses, IP addresses, and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported. … You should not be surprised that these actions taken by your White House staff raise the specter of a data collection system.”

Cornyn continued, “I urge you to cease this program immediately. At the very least, I request that you detail to Congress and the public the protocols that your White House is following to purge the names, e-mail addresses, IP addresses, and identities of citizens who are reported to have engaged in ‘fishy’ speech.” (emphasis mine)

Be encouraged, some out there are still looking out for the American people!

A Snitch’s Letter to Mr. Obama

This is a letter I submitted by way of e-mail to the White House. I plan to send many more to other officials.  I snitched on myself. haha

Dear Mr. Obama,

I will save my fellow Americans the trouble of bowing to a White House request for snitchery on those who speak or write against your health care reform.  I will do it for them as I have nothing to hide.

I am against this current health care bill because I do not believe it serves the best interests in the health or welfare of the American public.

I am against taxing an already overtaxed and underpaid society who is on the brink of complete financial ruin.

I am against a government imposed tax to those who do not selecthealth care, or for those who do not go along with the status quo, and for those small businesses who simply cannot afford to do what the rich government thinks it should. Employer- provided medical benefits is an option – and a great one – a benefit, not a requirement of law.  We believe in and support free enterprise.

I am against any kind of assisted suicide, whether of, or by the elderly or of the unborn regardless of the fancy wording and reasoning attached to it.

I am against providing illegal aliens with free heath care who should not be on our soil to begin with.

I am against a plan that will allow the government the choice of whether or not I receive medical treatment, prescription meds and whether or not  I live or die based on my age, medical condition and prognosis.

I am against any government plan to take away freedom and the right of life in whatever form it comes as these things were given freely by God Almighty, not man or government.

There is more, but this will suffice for now.

What is the motivation behind your plea for snitchery?  What will you plan to do with this information once it is obtained?  Do you realize what you request is a violation of our right to speech, right to privacy and our right to protest and to ask questions of our government officials?

We have and will continue to fight against any move of government that is considered to be wrong in whatever form it comes knowing that we will be branded as conspiracy theorists, the uniformed, crazy with too much time on our hands, and so on.

The current administration, regardless of its beliefs does not have the option to impede on our freedom.

The Senate should not be persuaded to vote on this bill until it has been fully read, reviewed, discussed and argued – and most importantly made public for all eyes to see. You expect us to pay, we want to see the product beforehand. You promised transparency, so where is it?

Thank you for your time.

White House Calls For Snitches!

From the White House “blog”-

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov. (emphasis mine)

Listen, save your fellow Americans the hassle of snitching on you. Call the White House, write letters, send faxes and e-mails to Obama, your senators, governors, representatives, etc. It is our right and privilege granted by our Constitution as Americans to question ALL of our leaders and to hold them responsible for every decision they make and for each law they propose. It is their responsibility to provide truthful answers to our questions without branding Americans as conspiracy theorists, crazy or disinformed.

This administration who claimed “transparency” is instead shrouded in darkness!

This “request” by the White House is against our freedom of speech at the most intimate level, our communication with each other, our family and our friends!  Think about it!  What does that say to you??  What will they do with the information once they receive it?

Invite us for a beer?

I am against Obama’s health care reform proposal they way it stands.  Snitch away, I don’t care, as I plan on writing many letters on my own alleviating the need for snitching!

I am against the government making decisions about my health, based on my age, my lifestyle, condition and medical prognosis.

I am against the government paying for abortions.

I am against the government counseling the aged to “die with dignity”  no matter what wording gets slapped on to it.

I am against the government providing illegal aliens with health care that they do not have to pay for.  (Illegal aliens shouldn’t be allowed here, but that’s another topic.)

I am against anyone making a decision based on life and freedom that was given freely to us all by God Almighty -period.

There is no conspiracy in what I and many, many other people are screaming about here. We do not like it. We are not going for it!

Why pay for a product we do not want??? As consumers, whenever we purchase a product we expect that the product to perform according to the claims. In purchasing health care, either through the government or private carrier, whether the money comes from payroll deductions or from paying taxes we would expect the health care to be sane, fair and reasonable, holding the health, safety and welfare of all Americans in high esteem. Health care is a product.

When a product breaks down, we send it back.

Obama’s health care reform is broken, send it back.

It’s gettin’ scary out there guys!

Israel says “NO To American Dictates!”

 

© Copyright IsraelNationalNews.com
 
I have to wonder why an American president who should stand for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; the very essence of the “American Dream” of gainful employment, home and family would stoop to the measures as Barak Hussein Obama.  Not only is he trying to take out America, but Israel as well. One thing our country has been known for consistantly is the protection of Israel, it’s land and people.
 
This man Obama has gone too far and is beginng to really show the qualities of a true dictator.  When will we say we’ve had enough?
 
Anti-Obama Rally in Jerusalem
by Hillel Fendel   from Israel News here
Here are some points taken from the article regarding the rally which was held Monday 7/27:
 
For the first time in years, the nationalist camp will hold a large scale rally against United States policies vis-Ă -vis Israel.

 “Not since the days of [U.S. Secretary of State Henry] Kissinger has there been such a protest against American policies,” said MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh), chairman of the National Union party. “The pressure that Barack Hussein Obama is exerting against us to simply stop growing and stop living will not work.”

The Obama administration has made it clear that Israel must stop building of all types throughout Judea and Samaria (Yesha), as well as in parts of Israel’s capital city that were liberated during the Six Day War of 1967.

In addition, hints have been dropped that American action against Iran depends on a cessation of Israeli construction in Yesha.

The slogan for Monday’s demonstration, and the message to Obama and his envoys, is, “Yes to Israeli Independence, No to American Dictates!”

Barack Hussein Obama is telling well over 600,000 Jews that they must all stop having children and buildings and going to the store and sending their children to school and building roads and, in short, to stop growing. This is the type of decree that our worst enemies decreed against us, always accompanied by their Jewish advisors. But just as they did not succeed, the same will be with Obama.”

——-Israel, we in America AGREE with you!——-

11 Outposts are Up – One Dedicated to Barack Obama
 
It appears our friends in Israel are determined to show Obama and those who run with him who is boss!  Pray those against Israel fail!
 
 “On your walls O Jerusalem we will place guards so that our enemies who besiege us with the goal of diving, expelling and destroying us will ultimately fail.”

 

Life No Longer Precious to Many

It’s becoming more and more obvious that Obama does not consider life to be precious. Is this also the thinking of the American  people?

Obama managed to overturn and destroy great strides made for the American family in his first 100 days.  Lots of hard work, blood, sweat and tears- those things America was built on, and those things worked for over the last generation in the effort  to protect family values are either gone or going fast. This is how much damage one man can do when given too much power.  An article from Humanevents.com found here, which points out the following:

  • Homosexual rights protected through the means of hate crimes/speech, forced hiring through ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act and the removal of the must sought after Defense of Marriage Act
  • Abortion utilizes United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which promotes abortion overseas and supports China’s one-child policy (Gosh, he has two kids, will he sacrifice one?)
  • Eliminate a regulation that affirms the right of doctors and other health professionals not to participate in abortion or sterilization, a move that is opposed by the overwhelming majority of Americans, including most doctors.
  • On physician-assisted suicide, the Obama administration has quietly taken steps toward forcing all Americans to comply with its utilitarian view of human life. The stimulus bill included $1 billion for research into creating guidelines to direct doctors’ treatment of difficult high cost medical problems, which means in the end we will not have a say on the treatment we receive.

A new spin on health care:

  • Old, sick, no longer useful to the word and costing us waaaay too much hard earned cash to keep ya alive and kickin, so do the young and healthy a favor and kill yourself.  The government will counsel you, help you plan it and carry it out. 

Here’s the scoop from World Net Daily.

But, it isn’t all Obama…

  • The greatest human freedom is to live, and die, according to one’s own desires and beliefs, according to this group, and now you have the right to decide when you can die, and you can do it with dignity. 

These folks can help you get there, they are time tested and true with $300,000 in “seed” money and a hoped for $650,000 more to come!  Impressive cash flow!

  • And to ensure abortion on demand is carried out regardless of what YOU believe as a medical provider, we have this new addition to the O team, the new surgeon general.  “No one will fall thru the cracks” on her watch.

Clearly Barak Hussein Obama wields a sword that he does not know how to use.  He is a man who has been granted too much power and has no idea what to do with it.  We see now where the blood and guts will come from when that sword comes crashing down.

Deuteronomy 30:18-20 (New King James Version)
18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess. 19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
