Obama's Staged Press Conference - No Accountability

Did you see that sham of a "press conference" that Obama held yesterday? How lame can this idiot get? With each passing day, his antics get worse and worse and our nation is suffering because of it. Did you notice what was not covered? Did you notice how Obama bloviates when answering questions? It's all planned that way. Yup! The more time he spends yapping, the less questions he has to answer. How many did he answer? Was it about 13 or 14?

In an analysis following the bogus conference, Bill O'Reilly mentioned that he got in about 45 questions in his 30 minute interview with Obama back during the campaign. And...notice that Obama selected certain reporters - most likely ahead of time - as he looked down and referred to his list. I would not be a bit surprised if he knew the questions ahead of time so he would have prepared answers. What's more did you notice the softball questions that were asked? Why didn't anyone bring up the low-flying plane over New York incident? - [LINK UPDATED] Why did Obama find it necessary to spend over $300,000.00 of taxpayer money to do a dumb town hall meeting in St. Louis, MO and at the same time mock the TEA Party participants while there? I could go on and on - but you already get the picture. These so-called news conferences ARE BOGUS BECAUSE THEY ARE STAGED!!

I was hoping to find a video that shows what a lying campaigner Barack Hussein Obama was as he and the DNC hijacked and usurped the presidency. Thanks to Nice Deb, I found one this morning. It is not entirely complete - there are SO MANY MORE SCANDALS, errors, faux pas, stupid moves, horrible executive orders, terrible decisions etc. that could be mentioned. In fact, you can read about most of them here, here or here. Those links are just a few locations where you will find the truth about this despicable person and his evil cronies. But seeing this brief video of Obama saying one thing on the campaign trail, and doing quite the opposite once in office is very telling of what a narcissistic liar the man is. There is no other way to see it. Obama IS A LIAR!!

Suffice it to say that the normal, grassroots efforts by everyday Americans who gathered for the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Parties across the nation have been given PLENTY of reasons to protest the bailouts, porkulus spending, scandals and all the rest (see list above) of the nonsense that this Bogus Potus and his awful administration has inflicted upon the us, the Citizens of the United States of America.

Why Were 5 Images Photoshopped? Plus - Plane Game

Adding more to the continuing Obama citizenship questions, we now find that a person who gave himself/herself the code name of "Ducky" *[see update] has photoshopped and altered five images - including the Certificate of Live Birth of Obama! Plus, recall that "birth announcement" that has been shown as "proof" that Obama was born in Hawaii? That was photoshopped too!

DefendUSx: New Discovery: 5 Photoshopped images of Obama done by the same user calling her-himself Ducky - one of these 5 images is the Certificate of Live Birth!

Go to the link above to see the images involved and the code that was found by computer scientist, DefendUSx.



Thanks to Rhonda Parsons who has a BA in graphics and her finding some images across the Internet from Obama's high school days in Hawaii.

I was looking for evidence of image forgery, and to my surprise saw the name 'Ducky' appeared in each image reviewed. I remember seeing 'Ducky' on Obama's Certificate of Live Birth image from his Fight the Smears website way back in August.

This proves that 'Ducky' has forged or changed every one of these images, in one form or another, as an effort to present something likely false by using a Professional image editing software (Photoshop) to make changes.

For those [of] you not that computer-savvy, Photoshop is image-editing software (the most popular). You can virtually superimpose one image onto another etc. Photoshop is often used to put heads on other peoples' bodies (as in the case of some Glam magazines) etc. Even an amateur with this software can make convincing, yet fake photos.
A quick-and-dirty way to find out if an image has been altered in any way, is to open that image in a Hex (or even simple text) editor.

Note: For those of you not so computer-savvy - images when opened in text editors (like Notepad) show the Hexidecimal code for the image. Computers only understand numbers, so it uses Hexidecimal to represent pairs of Binary numbers. Binary numbers are 1's and 0's. A pattern of these numbers together, represent the image to the computer, which converts it to what you see. Hexidecimal is a way of shortening up Binary sequences.
When an altered (or newly created) image is saved in Photoshop, it (Photoshop) will record basic details about the image depending on how the image-saving preferences are set. You can record additional text into the image, such as copyright information, or even a comment. And no, Ducky did not save any copyright information for the images.

Below are the images - shown normally and opened in a Hex editor. You will see 'Ducky' in each one. /quote

But that's not all, folks.

Take at look at the stalling tactics being used by Obama's million dollar plus team of lawyers to prevent the truth from being revealed to a court and the people of the United States of America regarding his vault-length Certificate of Live Birth (which would inevitably reveal where he was actually born):

Mario Appuzo: More Delays. USA/Obama Says They Need 124 Days to Answer; Congress 117 Days


Whether or not the President of the United States is eligible for the Office he currently occupies is of utmost national importance. Every passing day Mr. Obama takes executive action that significantly impacts on the lives of Americans. The USA and Obama have already been granted one extension to answer to May 5, 2009. They have therefore been given 77 days to answer. This is enough time for them to answer. With an extension to June 21, 2009, USA and Obama are asking for 124 days and the Congressional defendants are asking for 117 days to answer. Court rules only allow them 60 days. Such delay is not in the national interest and not acceptable. As to the Congressional defendants, a twenty-day extension for them to answer is reasonable, making their answer due by May 18, 2009. Given the national importance of the issues, an extension for all defendants to answer by June 21, 2009 is not acceptable.

The Right Side of Life is also reporting on the delaying tactics in this case. While reading the comments there, I ran across this one:

Francis says:
April 29, 2009 at 12:46 am
I foolishly voted for Obama. I was working in NYC yesterday when Air Force one and the F-16 flew over. No one knew whaqt was going on except we saw a huge plane flying low. My co-workers and I lived through 9/11 and we were all terrified. Over half of these people voted for Obama.

After they found out about this stunt, they were furious. Most of them will not vote for him again and hope he is removed or impeached. No one can fathom why this was done because it frightend thousands of New Yorkers. I wish Mario Apuzzo the best of luck. Any person who would fly a plane like that over NYC after 9/11 is a very disturbed and dangerous person.

A terrifying event that Obama just shrugged off as "a mistake" is waking people up - even some of those who voted for him!!!

This particular lawsuit must have merit and won't be dismissed by a diversionary technicality like "standing." The Obama team fears this lawsuit.

Hmmm...that fake COLB that the usurper has his team of thugs working on must not be aged enough yet?

Much more to read about how Obama is destroying this nation over at The Obama File

It is there where you will see what the Lamestream Media of Mass Deception attempts to keep hidden from you about Obama. The so-called "celebration" of Obama's first 100 days by the MSM will be a JOKE AND A LIE!

Still praying each day that the truth will one day come out. I hope it is sooner rather than later.

*Update: Apparently, the term "Ducky" is part of the named Adobe program. However, this does not explain why the photos were photoshopped in the first place.

P.S. The above site link is obviously in favor of Obama. It appears that the author there believes that "Native born" is equal to "Natural Born Citizen." I only had a few moments to check out the site, but there are many posts that mock the "birthers" and lawyers such as Orly Taitz. The sidebar has a list of lawsuits against Obama.


Update: In a comment posted at the "nativeborncitizen" blog (link directly above) we find out about more fraud:

Now Republic: Obama Punahou School 1979 Yearbook photo

The yearbook for Punahou in 1979 shows number 25 as another boy that looks remarkably similar to Barack Obama….the video on Youtube shows number 25 clearly making the basketball shots with the voice saying the over and over that it was Obama making the shots etc…….clearly a fraud. Why would someone go to lengths to show this video that Mr. Obama was playing basketball when it wasn’t him?

Does anyone know which video the commenter is referring to?

Here's more about Obama's Plane Stunt


Here's a portion:

Monday, April 27th -- a perfect storm of idiocy led to a frightening 9/11 flashback for thousands of New Yorkers Monday when a jumbo jet and two F-16 fighter jets buzzed lower Manhattan without warning.

A "Top Secret" photo opportunity using Air Force One and an F-16. This is a laugh riot. Obama has no hesitation unclassifying and releasing the nation's "Top Secret" documents, to the benefit of our enemies during wartime, but keeps secret a photo op for the purpose of making souvenir tie-clasps. Obama proves he is a genius with this stunt -- a first-class commander-in-chief.

One observer suggested that Obama might want to do a photo op with a Ryder rental truck in Oklahoma City next.

And who takes the hit? Some guy nobody has ever heard of. If you believe approval for this idiocy was made by a low-level bureaucrat, I have a bridge to sell you. I'll bet it takes twenty-six pounds of documents to get clearance for Air Force One -- just think about it -- the White House, the Pentagon, the Air Force, Andrews Air Force Base, the flight crew, the ground crew, the tactical fighter support, the Secret Service, the FAA, etc, etc, etc. -- when asked about the stunt, Obama's Press Secretary lied and said, "I did not see that before I came out here." -- The AP's Jennifer Loven shot back, "Well, it's been in all the stories all day."

I wonder what the auto CEOs who got their asses chewed out by Obama for using their private jets to fly to Washington think of this stunt -- and then, there's the cost in dollars and cost to the environment. For souvenirs, the cost was enormous. It costs $60,000 per hour to operate Air Force One, plus the operating costs for an F-16 escort -- we're looking at a quarter-of-a-million dollars, and up -- for a photo! -- Bloomberg reports that the total cost to the taxpayer was $328,835.

Wouldn't PhotoShop have been cheaper? It's not like Obama isn't familiar with the popular graphics editing program.

Update: Federal officials knew that sending two fighter jets and Air Force One to buzz ground zero and Lady Liberty might set off nightmarish fears of a 9/11 replay, but they still ordered the photo-op kept secret from the public.

In a memo obtained by NY's CBS Channel 2, the Federal Aviation Administration's James Johnston said the agency was aware of "the possibility of public concern regarding DoD (Department of Defense) aircraft flying at low altitudes" in an around New York City. But they demanded total secrecy from the NYPD, the Secret Service, the FBI and even the mayor's office and threatened federal sanctions if the secret got out.

There's more at The Obama File with updates coming.

Obama File thinks there is a 90% chance that this stunt was authorized by David Axelrod.

Here are some good questions:

A State Secret

Obama and his Democratic cronies have made it abundantly clear in the last few weeks that they don't give a hoot for state secrets.

Regardless of the damage to the country, they'll declassify even the most sensitive national security secrets if it supports their political agendas.

So, one must ask, "why was this flight classified as 'Top Secret'"?

It certainly wasn't a military secret. It certainly wasn't a national security secret. It most definitely was a political secret.

If I remember correctly, something is classified as Confidential, Secret or Top Secret by the local, responsible commander. The local, responsible commander in the White House is, yup, the usurper-in-chief, Barack Hussein Obama.

The Manifest

What is the rational behind making a publicity flight Top Secret?

What kind of secret would it be to have a 747, escorted by F-16s, making simulated bombing runs on America's most densely populated city. Hell, it would be all over TV in minutes. Why would such a stunt be classified?

Why, to bury the flight and passenger manifests, of course.

The American People need to pressure the White House to reveal who was on that aircraft, and it's real mission.

Was the plane full of high level foreign and domestic Obama campaign contributors? Was it full of Hollywood celebrities? Inquiring minds want to know.

But Now, The Serious News Roundup (Eve Update)

A Place to Ask Questions To Get the Right Answers: Activity in Kerchner v. Obama Case - Motion to Extend Time, Move, or Otherwise Respond & Declaration of Counsel Filed By Defendents


The defendants have already had over two months to answer, move, or otherwise respond. As of the current deadline of May 5th they will have had 75 days from the time they were served to respond. In our opinion, that is an adequate amount of time to answer or move or other wise respond. An objection will be filed to this second request by the defendants for a further extension of time.

How many ways can they continue to stall the inevitable?

Plus, to keep updated on all that is going on in the eligibility cases, see the dozens of post over at On The Right Side of Life- ESPECIALLY the following article that was posted on Sunday:

TulsaToday: “Obama’s First 100 Days in Trust”

And don't miss The New York Post: 100 days, 100 mistakes for Barack Obama

I wonder how many people are now realizing how very badly they were duped into voting for the usurper? How many are now seeing that the Lamestream Media will continue to prop up this teleprompter reading dummy and make it seem like his first 100 days have been successful?

Even other countries have noticed Obama's stupidity and incompetence!

Obama makes former President Bush look like a genius in comparison! Of course all presidents make mistakes. No president is perfect (Reagan was close and we now realize, more than ever, what a gem we had when he was our President!!!) but dare I say that Obama shows every indication that he is PURPOSELY TRYING TO DESTROY AMERICA!

On The Right Side of Life blog owner, Phil, has included commentary at the end of his post (above link) that reveals how obvious this is becoming. The proper name for Obama's terrible actions is called TREASON! Here's a copy of Phil's commentary:

Suffice it to say that issues such as eligibility are not going away. Furthermore, it is equally true and, I would wager, even more so if, in fact, this President truly does decide to shut down Guantanamo Bay, CIA “black” holding sites around the world, and otherwise continues to both signal and act in a way that severly diminishes America’s ability to protect and defend herself against her enemies, he will work this country towards being exceptionally exposed to attack.

And please do be aware of that, my fellow readers. While there is a difference between having an adversary (someone who merely disagrees with your stances) and having an enemy (someone who doesn’t just disagree with your viewpoint but is acting in some way to either specifically encumber you or, worse, destroy you), America doesn’t just exist because pieces of paper such as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution say that it should.

Remember: any law that people make must be enforced. Otherwise, it is merely writing on a piece of paper that simply sounds good, chock full of good intentions. Laws must be enforced and, ultimately, the awesomely effective and efficient forces of the American military are her greatest offense and defense against her enemies.

Not only this, but whether the issue is eligibility or some other wrong that has been hoisted upon the American People and States can be quite easily rectified via the Bill of Rights. It must be understood by all that only States and the American People have rights; the federal government has none. The federal government only has those powers and authority specifically and expressly enumerated within the Constitution; any and all other such powers and authority are reserved to the States or the People to carry out.

Anyone is completely within their right to question their elected leadership anything they wish for the truth. To suggest that any such questioning is wrong or should be condemned is, in my opinion, being unpatriotic (after all, how else is one to hold those who govern us into account?) and being essentially treasonous.

“But, Phil, that’s such a strong word. How can someone be ‘treasonous’ if they’re saying that either you shouldn’t question politicians or that you’re wrong for doing so?” Quite simply, if the American People see wrongdoing on behalf of their elected leaders, and if the federal government will do nothing about it, and if the States aren’t doing anything about it, then, per the Bill of Rights — specifically the 10th Amendment — it is the obligation of the People to uphold the Constitution.

If the People do not uphold the Constitution against elected leaders who are acting unconstitutionally, then it is the People who are actually being treasonous, because it is expressly within their right to do so and subsequently can only blame themselves for such unconstitutional failings.

Even worse, when — not if — another terrorist attack befalls our great country, those who have not held their elected officials to account will have the blood of fellow Americans on their hands.

I think America’s founding fathers were absolutely serious about the type of government they were intending to form. It is the greatest and most demonstrative form of individual government ever created. Yet, if we, the People do not question for the truth, that government shall surely begin the process of disappearing from the earth.

Fortunately, there is a growing number of American citizens who are going to do everything in our collective power to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Nice Deb: Pakistans President Say Bin Laden Could be Dead

Assorted bloggers and military analysts have been saying this for years, but this is the first time I’ve heard it from a Pakistani leader.

I have been one of the bloggers who has thought that Bin Laden has been dead for years.

Former posts:

Ex-Taliban Militants Story Sounds Fishy

I still think that Bin Hidin' has Bin Dead since August or September of 2006. Wouldn't it have been poetic justice if he died on September 11th? I know. More speculation. Since the classified French report was leaked sometime about Sept. 23rd, it is more likely that the monstermind would have died closer to that date.It's just too much of a coincidence that the Taliban held such a huge funeral in Sept. 2006 if Bin Hidin' was still alive.

Was just about ready to close down my computer for the night. But when I saw Gateway Pundit's latest blog title - I laughed so hard and just had to post a link to it!

Gateway Pundit: FOX Won't Air Obama's 100 Day Press Conference-- Will Show "Lie to Me" Instead


Some things just fit.

The AP reports that Fox has decided to stick with its regular line-up on Wednesday, meaning it won't air President Obama's prime-time news conference marking his 100th day in office. Instead, viewers will see an episode of "Lie to Me." ABC, CBS, and NBC will be airing the press conference.
Same difference.

UPDATE: Ladue Pundit posted this clarification:

Oh, NBC, CBS and ABC will also be airing "Lie to Me," the Obama version.

Thanks for clearing that up.

No Compromise: Standing Firm On Your Faith [Update]

What an AWESOME SERVICE at The Rock Church today!!! Watch the video of Carrie Prejean with Pastor Miles McPherson: No Compromise: Standing Firm On Your Faith

Carrie Prejean, Miss California and Miss USA’s first runner up, will appear at the Rock Church during services on Sunday April 26th. Prejean is a member of the Rock family and actively serves in church outreach ministries.

During the Q&A portion of last Sunday's Miss USA pageant, Prejean expressed her belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman, touching off a firestorm of widely publicized criticism from Pageant judge and nationally known celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton. In subsequent appearances, Prejean has stood fast in her morals and biblical truths, refusing to compromise her faith.

Sunday's services will feature a discussion with the Rock’s Senior Pastor Miles McPherson, who spent time with Prejean in the critical hours following the pageant. They will share the story behind the controversy that we haven’t heard.


Prejean stands up for her beliefs

The above article is typical of secular media. If you want to get the REAL STORY, you need to watch the entire video of Carrie Prejean's appearance at the Rock Church yesterday.

In this post update, I would like to talk about the main reasons that born again biblically-based Christians will NEVER accept same-sex marriage as valid. For some background information, I would point you to my sister blogsite "Protect Biblical Marriage" - especially the following posts:

1. Ten Declarations for Protecting Biblical Marriage

2. October 1st Webcast for Marriage

3. Religious Freedoms at Risk

What happened to Carrie Prejean is absolute proof that if national "hate crimes" legislation were to pass, millions of people will find their religious freedoms at risk. So you see, there is much more to this hotly debated issue than originally meets the eye.

There are dozens of blogposts that I could cite from Talk Wisdom about this subject. However, if I had to pick just one, I would recommend viewing the video of Pastor Miles McPherson - Marriage, The Image of God.

That message was given in February, 2008. It was given approximately 90 days before the California Supreme Court overturned Proposition 22 which simply stated, "Marriage in California is recognized as the union of one man and one woman."

In November of 2008, Proposition 8 passed by a majority of 52% of Californians (remember - most people in this state are very liberal) to place marriage as being recognized as the union of one man and one woman into the California Constitution.

Pastor Miles goes through the reasons why the passage of Proposition 8 is so very crucial for religious freedoms today.

Instead of backing up their Miss California winner, take a look at what the "officials" told Carrie to say to the press:

She told the congregation that officials from the Miss California USA pageant urged her to apologize.

Prejean said the officials were worried that her comments would cost their contest financial backing, and they tried to prepare her for post-pageant interviews by discouraging her from discussing her religious beliefs.
“ 'You need to apologize to the gay community. You need to not talk about your faith. This has everything to do with you representing California and saving the brand,' ” Prejean recalled being told.

In one of her T.V. interviews, I recall Carrie stating that if the Miss California organization doesn't think that she represents the state and wants to take back her crown - they can. This young woman was not going to back down! Bravo!!

In my study of the Bible and from various Christian sermons, lectures, and books, I have discovered that there is so much symbolism between God ordained marriage and the relationship between Jesus Christ and the church (all believers).

Marriage is God's idea! It was created by the Creator of the Universe! As Pastor Miles states in the above video, the enemy of our souls wants to poison God's will for our lives. Satan wants to twist the truth of God and make it into something that is the opposite of what God intends for our lives. This is true about ANY sin, by the way.

Notice in the San Diego Union Tribune article (above) that one church (that self-identifies as gay-behavior-affirming) allowed Carrie to have the right to have her opinion on this volatile issue. However, it wasn't left at that. Here's that portion of the article:

At the Metropolitan Community Church of San Diego, a gay-friendly church that holds services in University Heights, members said yesterday that they respect Prejean for standing up for her beliefs and support her right to speak her mind. They disagree with her position or insistence that God's blessing of marriage be reserved only for the union of a man and a woman.

“The Christian message is about freedom – freedom of speech and freedom of choice,” said church member Phil Ouellette.

Metropolitan church board member Bud Cheetham said same-sex marriage should not be scorned under the guise of spirituality.

Notice that Bud Cheetham didn't mention God's will.

Notice that he didn't mention God's Word - the Bible.

Notice that he didn't mention Jesus Christ.

What did he state as his point of reference for his beliefs?


He stated, "same-sex marriage should not be scorned under the guise of spirituality."

That is poison. That is a distortion. That is placing man's beliefs over God's Word, will and guidance via the Bible.

What is spirituality? It is whatever man claims it to be. It is whatever man wants it to be. It is man's attempt to be his own god. It is a way to send people into a kind of spiritual oblivion - ruled by man's feelings, emotions, sexual proclivities (especially sinful ones), and dismisses God's laws, the true gospel of Jesus Christ, and the reconciliation of God towards man when he/she accepts Christ as Lord and Savior.

All throughout the Bible Jesus is portrayed as the Groom and the church is the Bride. It is a blood covenant (consider the virgin bride), just as Christ's sacrifice was a blood covenant for our redemption.

In marriage, "the two become one flesh" when the marriage is consummated. In typical marriage vows, the pastor often states, "and let no man put asunder" - or - let no man break up such a covenant.

As we reach the culmination of history, there will be an event called the rapture. This is when Jesus returns and believers "meet the Lord in the air" to be with Him forevermore. After the rapture of the church, there will be a "Marriage Supper of the Lamb" in heaven with all saved believers. It will be a celebration like none other.

While here on earth, we are to eat the bread and drink the wine (juice) in remembrance of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for our salvation. The elements represent the body and blood of Jesus Christ. As often as we eat of the bread and drink of the juice - we affirm the Lord's death until he comes again (at the rapture) for his Bride - the church of Christ.

Marriage is a church issue. It doesn't (and shouldn't) have anything to do with the government. Don't be blinded by all these legal maneuverings. It doesn't have to do with what is "fair" - it has to do with what is right! This is why marriage is being attacked.

As Pastor Miles states in the video, "Same-sex marriage is an attack on God's symbol of salvation and the power of His image."

It is a perverted version of God's symbol of salvation and the power of His image.

This is why (perhaps unbeknownst to some) a true, born-again Biblical Christian CAN NOT EVER SUPPORT same-sex marriage. You can't have one foot in the world, and one foot in God's Will for your life without being split apart! Plus, the truth is that you will drift towards one direction or the other. It is impossible to honor God and man at the same time. One will triumph over the other. It's a given.

This is why Carrie Prejean, when asked that question, had to decide between answering the way the worldly crowd would want her to respond in order to win the earthly Miss U.S.A. crown, or, answer from her born-again, God honoring convictions in her heart to please God and have the eternal crown of life as provided through Jesus Christ our Lord!
We know her choice.

What is yours?

Christians vs. Atheists in Discussions

In the comment section of this post I have been reading the continuing conversation between Ken McKnight and Gary Baker.

Some of the quips are quite humorous:

Gary asks Ken about:

"being the snarky idiot?"

Ken replies:

"Ta,ta, Gary. I hope you and your ego will be very happy together."

But then returns with:

"BTW Gary,

On at least two separate occasions I have complimented Christine on that very point.

It's not just liberals. I tried commenting on the Miss America controversy on the Alliance Defense Fund site. I was extremely polite, yet my comment was cut because I didn't parrot the party line."

Gary replies:

"I was expecting you to withdraw from the discussion. Generally happens to liberals of your intellectual caliber when repeatedly pressed for facts, evidence, and logic which neither their education nor mentality has prepared them for. I must confess disappointment however. You didn't even try to come up with reasonable replies, so I guess that makes you lazy as well as cowardly. Let me know when you grow a spine."

Of course, these are just small snippets of each comment. However, it brings to mind a question that I have had over the course of several years - both while running my discussion forum and this blog. Are deep, true, solid, non-biased, thoughtful, considerate, intelligent, polite, complimentary, uplifting, kind, inspiring, enthusiastic, acceptance of evangelizing attempts, and non-ridiculing discussions actually possible between atheists and Christians?

I have found that in rare moments, there are some areas of agreement. But oftentimes, the discussions are very confrontational.

Tonight, I was reading a comment written by GMPilot who was answering part of a comment written by Sothenes over at my Talk Wisdom forum and I found what he had written fascinating. Here is a copy of the brief discussion:

Originally Posted by Sothenes

You don't have to imagine how the non-believer feels, Sothenes; just ask one. It doesn't have to be me, but since I'm here...

I'm not trying to catch anything. It's only Christians like yourself that are seeking an ecclesiastic body count. Besides, the fish have been biting for nearly 2000 years. What sort of bait do you use? Fear of death? Awareness of their sin? Promise of eternal life? It would be interesting to know.

But every fisherman I know of has a story about 'the one that got away'. It checked out the lure, even nibbled at it; but once it was hooked, it fought with all its power to get off that hook, and win its life and freedom. Fishermen usually speak of that fish with grudging respect, because it wouldn't succumb to the trap.

Think of the non-believer as that sort of fish.

Take a look at their signature quotes:


"If there were no God, there would be no Atheists."-GK Chesterton


"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration--courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth." --H L Mencken

"The next time someone asks you if you're a god, say yes." --"Ghostbusters"

We can see why GMPilot thinks of Christian faith as "succumbing to a trap" because his signature quote states, "Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I (he) holds in veneration -- courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."

So, how does one witness and attempt to evangelize someone with such an attitude?

Sothenes' signature quote combats GMPilot's view that "there is no God" with the quote: "If there were no God, there would be no Atheists."-GK Chesterton

Christian faith is courageous.

Christian faith is involved with clear thinking.

Christian faith is honest.

Christian faith is fairness.

Christian faith is, above all, the TRUTH!

However, a non-believer thinks that his "version" of "the truth" is completely opposite the Christian's view of truth.

So, this leads me to ask some questions:

1. Where do such conversations lead?
2. How do they usually end?
3. Are seeds of faith planted as a result?
4. Are seeds of doubt increased?
5. Can you think of more questions to add to this list?

As Christian believers who are involved with Jesus' Great Commission command to share the gospel with everyone we can, it is true that we may not know (this side of heaven) how many people we have positively influenced towards salvation in Christ.

I have found that skeptics/non-believers/atheists/agnostics sometimes tell me that my witnessing efforts have actually driven them further away from faith in Jesus Christ. They claim that my judgmental attitude and (fill in the blank!) have solidified their skepticism.

Should believers be concerned about this?

My opinion?


The reason being that a non-believer is in no better (or worse) position in having heard the gospel shared in a perceived "wrong way" vs. not hearing the gospel at all.

Consider the fact that they were separated from God in the first place, so any additional negative influence does not change their destiny in eternity.

However, a seed planted (even if viewed as being planted poorly by the Christian evangelist according to the skeptic) could still sprout towards belief in Christ as a result in the future. This would change the destiny of the already condemned non-believer towards heaven.

Isaiah 57:15-21 NLT -

Isa 57:15 The high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, the Holy One, says this: "I live in that high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I refresh the humble and give new courage to those with repentant hearts.

Isa 57:16 For I will not fight against you forever; I will not always show my anger. If I did, all people would pass away--all the souls I have made.

Isa 57:17 I was angry and punished these greedy people. I withdrew myself from them, but they went right on sinning.

Isa 57:18 I have seen what they do, but I will heal them anyway! I will lead them and comfort those who mourn.

Isa 57:19 Then words of praise will be on their lips. May they have peace, both near and far, for I will heal them all," says the LORD.

Isa 57:20 "But those who still reject me are like the restless sea. It is never still but continually churns up mire and dirt.

Isa 57:21 There is no peace for the wicked," says my God.

A Christian Convo re: Swimsuits & Miss CA [Video added]

Over at Camp On This I got into a conversation about Miss California - Carrie Prejean - and the objections that some Christians bring up about the swimsuit part of the Miss U.S.A. pageant competition. Of course, Christian believers can disagree on issues like this one. Perhaps you might agree with what Byron Harvey has written. However, I felt led to stand up for Carrie's decision to enter into pageantry and state why I (personally) think that the swimsuit portion of the competition should not be deemed as something negative that would take away from her Christian witness.

Here is a copy of the first comment:

Byron Harvey said...
Very respectfully, Steve, I think that the issue of the very immodest bikini she was wearing is a significant part of the issue here, because in your original post, you laud not only her (laudable!) answer regarding "gay marriage", but you lift her up as, effectively, a role model with many opportunities to share her faith in Christ, etc. If you'd stopped at lauding her response only, I'd agree with you, but I argue that while she may be a fine person in many respects, and gave a gutsy answer, her testimony is compromised by her quite immodest choice in attire. She wanted to be, she said, "biblically correct", which I applaud, but that outfit was anything but, and I think that before we lift her up as a paragon of Christian witness, we consider the quite contradictory messages that she sent on that evening.

Though I'm not sure you're doing this, Steve, I believe it's a shame when Christians "swallow" a lot of stuff just to lift up people who get it right in some ways. I agree with a lot of the things Rush Limbaugh says, but he's no paragon of virtue; similarly, Carrie Prejean's total performance that evening is far more a mixed bag than I think your words suggest.


Christinewjc said...

I'm sure that Steve will have a better reply than mine, but my response is that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" however, so is lust.


Byron Harvey said...
Thanks, Christine, and I'm eager for Steve's response, but the issue isn't lust on the part of the looker (though her outfit certainly could incite lust easily, it seems to me), but the modesty appropriate for one who is "biblically correct", in her words. For me, it's simple: if a Christian young lady, in any circumstance, asked me, "would wearing this outfit bring honor to Christ, Pastor", there wouldn't be any hesitation: absolutely not. I'm not sure that women sometimes understand the male mind, how quickly men can be led to lustful thoughts under any circumstances, and how readily such apparel worn by beautiful young ladies does so. And don't kid yourselves: it ain't just me, ladies, it's every red-blooded man in America (endemic to our fallen maleness). Here's the bottom line question:
Steve, would you ever encourage a sincere Christ-following young lady to wear such an outfit, under any circumstances? And if not, how does Miss California get a pass, merely on the basis of one great answer?



I can understand your feeling that way. Perhaps the reason that I don't see things your way is because of our gender difference.

With that said, let me see if I can make my point in another way.

Let's pretend that there was such a thing as a middle-aged "Ms. U.S.A. pageant" and I was the CA representative. As a 54 year old woman, I would personally absolutely HATE to put on a bikini and walk across a stage in it. I'd rather wear one like the illustration at the top of this post! Of course my body would NEVER get the same reaction (more like laughter!!) as Carrie's beautiful figure obviously gets! LOL! However, if such an act gave me the possible opportunity to witness for Christ in front of millions (well, probably a lot less would watch it!) of people - then, for HIM - I would do it.

My obviously dopey illustration is meant to show that two different reactions to the "physical" presence of the Christian isn't what matters the most. If I got the same question while standing up there and answered it in a similar way - then both of us would have accomplished a similar end. So, my questions to you are - is one shameful and not the other? Would both be considered shameful?

Carrie Prejean is going to appear at the Rock Church (Pastor Miles McPherson) this Sunday. I will share what she has to say at the service in a future blog post.

From what I have heard her say in dozens of T.V. interviews, she wanted to use the Miss U.S.A. position (as well as her current Miss California role) to share the love of Christ - in any capacity that she can. Therefore, I can safely say that she isn't in pageantry for the wrong reasons.

You may see her answer as just "one moment" of standing up for Christ - but sometimes, that is all it takes to start a spark of a movement for the Kingdom.

Her steadfast faith, courage to speak the truth, grace in fighting back disgusting rhetoric against her with nothing but kindness and goodness, and pointing to Jesus Christ for the reason she lives is a powerful testament and example for young people. Her courage will bring forth many more courageous young women (and men) to speak boldly for Christ - even when a firestorm of controversy and protest might erupt.

Carrie was David to Perez Hilton's Goliath. Her answer didn't physically "kill the beast", but it certainly stunned him! It also stunned many more like him. Those celebrities who took his side came out to share in the bashing party.

Ephesians 6 comes to mind.

Especially these verses:

Eph 6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

Eph 6:7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

Eph 6:8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether [he be] bond or free.

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Eph 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

This last verse is a life verse for me:

Eph 6:20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Byron Harvey said...

Great analogy--and I'm sure that the sight of me, a 48-year-old guy, in a Speedo would provoke a similar reaction!

Now, that said, here's what your rationale sounds like; correct me if I miss it: "the end ("speaking for Christ to millions") justifies the means" (dressing in an inappropriate outfit--inappropriate, IMHO, for 54-year-olds and young ladies alike, though one could, I suppose, make the argument that the "lust factor" is lessened when such garments are displayed on us middle-aged folk!). It's never right to do wrong to do right, I believe--and I think Steve believes that--and I think that's what your reasoning comes off as. To use a different analogy, what if instead of wearing a skimpy bikini, she had performed in a talent portion (does Miss USA have such? I don't know...) by singing some suggestive song, rapping out a nice hip-hop tune with its vulgarity instead of dressing so immodestly? I'd hope that you'd agree with me that such actions would compromise her witness, making her words ring more hollow than they might otherwise. As I see it, there's no difference whatever.

I don't mean to suggest, by the way, that Miss Prejean's answer was the only moment of her "standing up for Christ"; I know nothing of her life, and from what you've said, it seems she does so on more than one occasion, and that's great. My only point is that her words are compromised by her immodesty.

I wouldn't begin to presume to question her motives for being in the Miss USA pageant; it may well be that everything she says is true about wanting to gain a platform to speak for Christ. But that's not the point at all; it's not why she did it, but what she did. You suggest that other young ladies might be emboldened to speak up for Christ; I'd counter with the just-as-likely scenario that other young ladies might join in our society's rush to jettison modesty, lowering (still further) any sense of Christian modesty, inciting more young men to lust as they parade their bodies barely clad. See what I'm driving at?

And still dying to hear our friend Steve's take...

By the way, I think Carla makes a trenchant point as well...

As I wrote in the comment section, my time at the computer is limited this weekend. I will be checking in periodically to release comments and when I have the opportunity, reply to the comments.

While briefly looking through my reading list, I ran across this video from where a CNN reporter tries to get Miss California to admit her political party affiliation. Carrie does a great job in steering the conversation back on topic:

A thought came to my mind today.

In swimming competitions, men often wear those awful speedo swimsuits. They are very clingy...if you know what I mean.

Two questions.

Why is that not considered immodest?

Why would a Christian man not be considered a strong witness for Christ (if he is a believer) despite wearing such an article of clothing for a swimming competition?

Byron replied (the portion of his comment directed to me at Campi's blog):

And Christine, maybe somebody else will, but you won't get me defending Speedos on men (and you definitely won't get me wearing one!).

The Rock San Diego: Miss California


[NOTE: Only the 10:00 a.m. (PT) and 12:00 p.m. (PT) services will be available via live stream.]


SAN DIEGO (April 24, 2009)—On-line viewers will be able to watch a live 36 minute conversation between Carrie Prejean, Miss California and Miss USA’s first runner up, and Miles McPherson, Senior Pastor of the Rock Church.

Prejean will appear at the Rock Church during all five services on Sunday April 26th. Prejean is a member of the Rock family and actively serves in church outreach ministries. The 10:00am and 12:00pm (pst) services will be streamed live, viewable at The Rock San

The Rock’s Senior Pastor Miles McPherson, spent time with Prejean in the critical hours following the pageant. They will share the story behind the controversy that we haven’t heard.

During the question and answer portion of Sunday’s Miss USA pageant, Prejean expressed her belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman, touching off a firestorm of widely publicized criticism from pageant judge and nationally known celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. In subsequent appearances, Prejean has stood fast in her morals and Biblical truths, refusing to compromise her faith.

My son received a text message from The Rock Church today. Carrie Prejean will be speaking at the services this Sunday!! Isn’t that great??

Leave it to Pastor Miles to arrange having Carrie come to our church! She is continuing to be an inspiration to all and great witness for Christ! God is blessing her - despite the horrid rhetoric from the haters and the spiteful Hollywood crowd!

More Obama Fraud Evidence [add-ons]

RepubX has done some fine detective work to expose one of the latest finds in the growing arsenal of Obama scandals and fraud. Obama Punahou Basketball image Photoshopped with Adobe version 3.0.8


Well, did you think it was authentic? Nope, and just like Obama's Certificate of Live Birth Forgery, it left a nasty Photoshop finger print.

For those [of] you not that computer-savvy, Photoshop is image-editing software (the most popular). You can virtually superimpose one image onto another etc. Photoshop is often used to put heads on other peoples' bodies (as in the case of some Glam magazines) etc. Even an amateur with this software can make convincing, yet fake photos.

Check out the image below [click here for RepubX blog] that Obots are trying to pass around as proof that Obama attended Punahou Private school in Hawaii.

Go take a look and see for yourself!

My comment there:

Great detective work! Why would anyone do this unless they had something serious to hide! The left arm doesn't even look real. The letters on the jersey do not show. At least part of a letter should be visible (if this were an authentic photo) between the two hands and/or near the left elbow. Plus, the left arm (that doesn't look real) appears to have been placed in an odd way to try and hide that fact.

The evidence is certainly mounting in exposing what an absolute fraud Obama really is.

Young Woman Holds to Her Convictions

When I heard the name, "Carrie Prejean," I thought to myself that the name sounded familiar. While texting with my daughter this morning, she reminded me that they had become good friends while they both played on the same softball team years ago. She wrote, "Mom - check out the softball photo of the team in red on the shelf above your computer desk. She had brown hair back then." I remember her! When I have some time (and guidance on how to do it) I will scan and upload that softball team photo.

For now, I want to share a link to the video of Carrie's answer to the homosexual man (who called her a very cruel and ugly name afterwards in his own video), and how very proud we all are of her for standing up for her convictions and not sacrificing them for the pageant crown.

Miss California loses for supporting marriage between a man and woman.


“Good for Miss California,” said Johnny Franks in The Chattanoogan. She was asked a loaded question by an openly gay judge, and held to her morals when it would have been so easy to “sacrifice them for the crown.” Shame on everybody who booed her—“since when do we live in a pink Nazi society that sensors free speech.”

Some good comments there:

Everybody pray for her, she stood up for her cinvictions, I believe God will bless her. We will be put down for anything against the gay agenda but consider the source, they are serving satan and not God. It is a very different world we live in and it isn’t going to get any better so hang in there for what the Bible stands for and we will win in the end.

My 18 year old grandson and I watched the tournament, and Miss California had won hands down, but when that flaming gay judge asked that question, and she gave a courageous and correct answer we turned to one another and said she was washed up, because she stood on principle. In any event, I thought the Miss USA pageasnt was on looks and not on politial correctness. When did this change? John Kehoe

Kudos to Miss California for being a true American, one who stands for her belief in the face of adversity and even at the cost of a crown. Boo to Perez Hilton for being such a hypocrit, not a champion against bigotry. Boo for the Miss America committee who chose the judges. Miss California’s courage will long outlive the Miss America Contest.

Lastly, isn't it ironic that Miss California is getting all of the attention because of her determination to not be "politically correct?" I don't even know who actually won the pageant!

Kupelian: Why I Care About Obama Eligibility Issue (Updates)

David Kupelian's article, Why I care about Obama eligibility issue include many good points as to why this issue won't go away.


All I know is, Obama is hiding something. After all, he has it totally within his power to make all these lawsuits and "birthers" look foolish with a simple, 30-second phone call to the Hawaii Department of Health, saying, "I authorize you to release to the public and press a certified copy of my complete, long-form birth certificate."

The rest of the press declines to cover this issue (except to mock it), not because there are no valid legal questions involved and not because it isn't newsworthy – what with dozens of lawsuits, some of them in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. No, they don't cover it because they're afraid of losing favor with the president they were largely responsible for installing, and they're also afraid of being marginalized and ridiculed by their colleagues in the press.

Ironically, the "mainstream media," as well as members of Congress questioned by constituents about the eligibility issue, and even the Obama administration itself, all cite as a primary "independent" expert source on the issue, is part of the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania, which critics point out is linked to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge organization where Obama worked for several years with former "Weather Underground" terrorist William Ayers.

But putting that association aside, let's look at what actually says under the heading, "The truth about Obama's birth certificate." Explaining to website viewers what they're looking at – a short-form "certification of live birth" for Barack Obama – says:

The document is a "certification of birth," also known as a short-form birth certificate. The long form is drawn up by the hospital and includes additional information such as birth weight and parents' hometowns. The short form is printed by the state and draws from a database with fewer details. The Hawaii Department of Health's birth record request form does not give the option to request a photocopy of your long-form birth certificate, but their short form has enough information to be acceptable to the State Department. We tried to ask the Hawaii DOH why they only offer the short form, among other questions, but they have not given a response.
In other words, even the folks at – cited reflexively and ad nauseam by everyone under the sun as the independent authority on Obama's birth certificate and proof that he's "natural born" – admit they haven't seen the real (long-form) birth certificate, can't get it from Hawaii, and can't even get an answer to their question about the long form.

Now, the other reason I care about this issue is because I still care about the Constitution.

It's a very dangerous thing in life to intentionally cross sacred boundaries, especially when you know you're doing it. It's hard – sometimes impossible – to get back on the right side again. For Americans, one of those great moral lines is violating the Constitution. For instance, once Congress starts spending taxpayer money on things not authorized by the Constitution, no matter how seemingly laudable or humanitarian, there is no stopping it. There is no other "line" to cross after the first one. So after you've justified crossing the sacred line and violating your oaths to God and man, the way seems clear. In front of you lies wide open territory as far as the eye can see – green pastures of plunder. Eventually we arrive at today's trillion-dollar spending bills and national and personal bankruptcy, the precursor to tyranny. All because we allowed our government to step over the sacred line of constitutional spending decades ago.

It's exactly the same with the Constitution's requirement that presidents be natural born.

And why is "natural born" important?

A great deal has been written about how critical it was to the founders that the nation's highest office and commander in chief be occupied only by people for whom utter loyalty to the USA, and not any other nation, was indisputable. John Jay, president of the Continental Congress from 1778 to 1779, and who later became the first chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, wrote the following in a letter dated July 25, 1787, to George Washington, presiding officer of the Constitutional Convention and later first president of the United States. Note: The underlining of the word "born" was in the original:

"Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Commander in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen."

Without debate, the "natural born" requirement for the presidency was introduced by the drafting committee and subsequently adopted by the Constitutional Convention, as Article II, Section 1: "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

If we abandon the requirements for president specified by the Constitution – which millions of brave young Americans have fought, bled and died to protect – then we are no longer a constitutional republic of citizen sovereigns. We become just another rudderless, hell-bent nation ruled by selfish, ambitious, sinful – and sometimes sociopathic – men and women. Nothing special. Our former national blessing from God just a sad memory.

I don't think that's what we want America's fate to be. As I said, it's a lot better not to cross a sacred line – and this happens to be one.

That's why I still care about the eligibility issue.

Today, Repub X asked the question whether or not the Obama Admin. is working on a forged long form Birth Certificate.

Commenter "Reese" over at Citizen Wells blog had this to say:

Has anyone read this story from:

The Obama File

A Forged Long-Form Birth Certificate?

DC sources say that an Administration team is working on perfecting a forgery of the long-form birth certificate. They plan on presenting it in a a month or so. The source is an FBI agent who has drinking buddy from University of Illinois now in the Administration. It’s second hand, but the source is supposed to be solid.

They have already prepared the forgery with special paper and ink. The document was printed on a fully functional 1960 Heidelberger printing press located at a print museum in Toronto. Access was arranged by a trustee of the museum who is connected to a large Canadian banking/investment firm with major US interests.

The blanks in the forged form were filled in with an old Underwood Manual typewriter bought at an estate sale in Skokie, IL. The raised seal was the easiest piece to fake, since you can by a special order corporate seal from just about any online office supply store.

The only reason they haven’t rolled out the forgery yet is that it is “seasoning” under mild UV light and a back and forth rotation between between a humidifier and a sauna. Get ready….one to two months tops.

I personally don’t put a lot of stock into this report. I have included it here in the off-chance that a couple of months down the road Obama suddenly releases his long-form birth certificate after his long and expensive battle to keep it from the American People. If that happens, this report will immediately gain a great deal of credibility.

Disturbing...isn't it? Technology today can often lead to evil; especially through very nefarious efforts to con an entire nation and forge documents in order to cover the tracks of an alleged usurper.

However, Jesus tells us not to let our hearts be troubled!

In fact, I was encouraged after reading the following comments by OldSalt76 (for some strange reason - I just love that screen name!) over at Citizen Wells blog:

There is a story that the Obama GOON squad is perpetrating the manufacture of a VAULT LONG FORM COLB. Having been a lithographer for over 40 years of my life I have acquired certain information regarding PAPER that isn’t generally known to counterfeiters who think that they can induce aging in a NEW product. True aging is readily discernable, from counterfeit aging. There is a substance in our atmosphere which I will not name. All truly aged paper absorbs this element. It cannot be artificially added to the paper. There is a simple test that will indeed tell the truth about any forged document where aging is a concern. Nor will I give away the name of the test. It is accurate. So if Obamas goons think that they can fool everybody, all that is necessary is to request that a natural aging test be conducted on the alleged COLB. Also there is another aspect of such counterfeiting that is equally as damning. It is the question whether the original was produced on an offsett press or a letterpress.. There is a readily discernable differrence. Unless the counterfeiters have extensive experience in the entire realm of graphic arts reproduction, (which includes papermaking), they will FAIL. Papermaking science is one that incorporates a great deal of history. The pulpmaking to the calendaring, is a precision industry. That is the primary reason why the Obama GOONS will FAIL. Most papermakers can simply examine a piece of paper through a microscope, and tell you the entire composition of the paper,and about how old it is. I would love to see the stupid look on the faces of the Obama GOONS when their counterfeit COLB is exposed as such by trained anaylists. Such an attempt only reveals the level of stupidity that is obviousy present around Soetoro.

In the event that the alleged vault COLB should suddenly appear, and shows his birthplace as Hawaii,I can’t help wonder what all of the Kenyans who think that he was born there, will do. Perhaps it would be the ideal time to tell them that he has lied about it, and that all of his lies are very demeaning to all of Kenya,and it’s people. I would also bet that if he was truly born in Kenya sombody there knows exactly where the records are,and given the circumstances at hand might have incentive to provide certified copies of the original forms. GOODBYE BARRY

You see, superior technology can work in favor of THE GOOD, TOO!

This Is REALLY STRANGE! (Many Updates)

Last evening, I was reading Orly Taitz's new blog. One of the first posts I read was titled Key witness in presidential passport case fatally shot. At the time, I didn't even notice that it had happened not this "April 16th" but on April 16, 2008!

I only discovered this just a few moments ago while reading the comments over at Citizen Wells blog.

One of the commenters recommended reading the comments over at Free Republic There are many questions (e.g. why isn't it accessable via wayback machine?) discussions about how many had not heard of this until today (April 18, 2009). There are also a lots of links where people tried to do more research on the murder (and suspected assassination).

Another thing that is very strange. When you click on the Washington Times article link, the bottom of the page says this:

Comments are temporarily unavailable.

Why is that?

Commenters over at Free Republic are discussing that there doesn't appear to be any follow-up articles or further investigation into this murder.

This is REALLY STRANGE, scary...and very creepy.

As I get more information, I will share it here.

Anyone with additional information, please post it in the comment section. Thanks.


The Betrayal has a post up about this today. Someone in the comment section noticed that it was a year-old article, too.

Note these:

R U 18? VOTE! // Apr 19, 2009 at 6:06 pm
I just looked in Google News Search and saw nothing about this!!!

Katie // Apr 19, 2009 at 9:05 pm
Note the date on the article. It’s April 19, 2008. A year ago.

So either this story is a year old and someone is stirring up public interest, or the date is wrong on the article.

My hunch is that the murder was never solved, and someone wants attention on this story to help their cause.


A Blog for All has some background information about the man (Lieutenant Quarles Harris Jr.) who was shot and killed.


If you follow the additional links in the article (above) you will get more information.

Found this interesting:

Sen. Obama now wants to get Congress involved and have them investigate the State Department. He says that it's to keep the investigation from being a purely internal matter. It should be an open investigation, but Congress will do what it always does - grandstand before the cameras.


When I clicked on this link (where there was supposed to be an additional Washington Times article about the victim (Harris) "stealing passport information to gain new identities for illicit purposes" I got this:

Page not found
Seems like we can't locate the file you were looking for!
Either the file no longer exists, the URL has been mistyped, or that file has been moved. Sorry for the inconvenience!

So...was it scrubbed?

Luckily, the blogger posted an excerpt from the original article:

Meanwhile, a State Department employee who was not identified in documents filed in U.S. District Court, was implicated in a credit-card fraud scheme after 24-year-old Lieutenant Quarles Harris Jr. told federal authorities he obtained "passport information from a co-conspirator who works for the U.S. Department of State."

The investigation began after Metropolitan Police on March 25 pulled over Mr. Harris in Southeast on suspicion that the windows of his vehicle were tinted too darkly.

After searching Mr. Harris and his vehicle, police found marijuana and 21 credit cards that were not issued in his name or the name of a female passenger with him. Police also found eight printouts of State Department passport applications, and four of the names on the applications matched four of the credit cards.

Upon questioning by agents from the U.S. Secret Service, U.S. Postal Service and State Department, Mr. Harris "admitted he obtained the passport information" from a State Department employee, court documents say.

Mr. Harris also said the fraud ring submitted credit-card applications using the names and "identifying information" of the persons listed on the passport applications, and that a postal service employee then would intercept the cards before they were delivered to the appropriate residences.

Passport application data includes details such as a person's date and place of birth, e-mail address, mailing address, Social Security number, former names and travel plans.

Mr. Harris, of Capitol Heights was initially arrested for possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and has since been charged by complaint in U.S. District Court in the District with credit-card fraud.

He was released on his own recognizance, under the condition that he not apply for or possess any passports.

Does anyone else think it strange that Harris was "released on his own recognizance" with the only stipulation that he "not apply for or possess any passports?" punishment for the crime?

According to the date of the blogpost, the original article must have been written around Saturday, April 05, 2008. Eleven days later, Harris was murdered.

Research is getting creepier by the minute...


The Lawhawk blogger had additional links to other bloggers discussing the passport issue. One was Michelle Malkin: First Obamas Passport Now Hillary's Breached too. Malkin's blog post is dated March 21, 2008 - 5 days after the murder of Harris - but the murder is not even mentioned in the post or in the comments!

Was the story spiked back then? Sure looks like it! I would imagine that Michele Malkin, of all bloggers, would have been all over it if she knew about it back then.


Pam Gellar of Atlas Shrugs: Key Witness in Presidential Passport Tampering Case Murdered in 2008, No Arrests


There is a video here of Obama's response to the passport "breach" back on March 21, 2008. Watch it -- I think it's telling that he says, not that he has anything to hide, "not because I have any particular concerns" [minute -.23]. This is before the birth certificate scandal. Who would say that?

Passport breach March 21.

On April 8, 2008, Obama confessed to having taken a trip to Pakistan in 1981.

Here is what Obama said - Jake Tapper was there:

"So when I speak about having lived in Indonesia for four years, having family that is impoverished in small villages in Africa --knowing the leaders is not important -- what I know is the people...I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college -- I knew what Sunni and Shia was [sic] before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee."

Tapper was surprised and said:

This last part -- a college trip to Pakistan -- was news to many of us who have been following the race closely. And it was odd that we hadn't hear about it before, given all the talk of Pakistan during this campaign.
Much speculation has been made about what national passport Obama used when he traveled to Pakistan in 1981.

So Obama confessed to this trip two weeks after his passport was tampered with.

Pakistan was in turmoil in 1981 and ruled of martial law. Millions of Afghan refugees were living in Pakistan, while the Afghan Mujahedeen operated from bases inside Pakistan in their war with the Soviets. One of the leaders that based his operation in Quetta, Pakistan was Usama Bin Laden (The Sheik).

Pakistan was on the banned travel list for US Citizens at the time and all non-Muslim visitors were not welcome unless sponsored by their embassy for official business. (more here)


Update: 4/20/09

Evidence of more Internet scrubbing to hide articles that contain the truth about Obama!!

The Betrayal: Dutch article scrubbed from Web describes Obama citizenship. Article suggests Obama lived with his Mother in Indonesia through his teens, not in Hawaii.

The author of the blog makes several good observations! One of the most startling is included in the conclusion at the end of the post (highlighted in red):


Based on the information above, could Obama have come over on a Student Visa from Indonesia, to attend College at 18 in the states? He met his Marxist CIA Professor at Occidental College and was recruited to study Sovietology. Lolo was a radical Muslim and Indonesia is mostly Muslim. Did Obama continue to live with his Mom in Indonesia and study Islam at the same time? The most recent picture of Obama with his Grandma “Toot” is over 20 years old. No other pictures. Could it just be from a visit to Hawaii with his Mom? No one remembers Obama in Hawaii. The address he said he lived, the neighbors said they don’t remember seeing him, not even once. No one at the school in Hawaii, it was said he attended, remembers him being there. No class-mates, nothing. The hospitals in Hawaii claim they have no records of his Mom having been treated there for Cancer.

Much more to read both at The Betrayal and Repub X

Speaking of "scrubbing," the Communist News Network has taken down the embarrassing Youtube video of the reporter, Susan Roesgen, harassing a TEA party attendee and then cutting him off because she didn't like what she was hearing (a.k.a The Truth!).

Scrubbed! CNN yanking tea party 'embarrassment'
Demands YouTube remove video of fed-up citizens berating reporter the Communist News Network world there is no such thing as the fair use act?!!

This is getting to be so ridiculous!!
