Obama's Health Care & Cap & Tax Plans Disastrous

This morning, Fox News did a report on how private practice is making a come back in Canada. Why? Because people like one woman in the story would have had to wait 30 months for an MRI. She paid the expense of flying to the U.S.A. and got her exam (and was found to have a brain tumor and given 6 to 9 months before she would be completely blind) and treatment within days. The doctors stated that she would have died if she had to wait 30 months.

Obamacare is more like ObamaDOESN'TCARE! It will end up being a death sentence - especially for the most vulnerable people - premature born babies and the elderly, not to mention all of us in between those stages of life!!

Most Americans are happy with their health coverage. You certainly wouldn't get that same answer in Britain or Canada - where nationalized health care has become a nightmare!

Wake up America!! Don't let this terribly expensive and horribly inefficient ideology of the rabid-liberal-left trap us into such a failed health care system!!

From The Obama File:

Obama Suppresses His Own EPA Report

A top Republican senator has ordered an investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency's alleged suppression of a report that questioned the science behind global warming.

The 98-page report, co-authored by EPA analyst Alan Carlin, pushed back on the prospect of regulating gases like carbon dioxide as a way to reduce global warming. Carlin's report argued that the information the EPA was using was out of date, and that even as atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have increased, global temperatures have declined.

"He came out with the truth. They don't want the truth at the EPA," Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla, a global warming skeptic, told FOX News, saying he's ordered an investigation. "We're going to expose it."

The controversy comes after the House of Representatives passed a landmark bill to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, one that Inhofe said will be "dead on arrival" in the Senate despite Obama's energy adviser voicing confidence in the measure.

One Ongoing Battle

Good and bad news about the ongoing (and seemingly never-ending) battle against homosexual indoctrination, continued lawsuits and the radical activists push for same-sex "marriage."

First, the bad news. Alliance Defense Fund has announced that there has been a class action lawsuit filed:

State Class Action Lawsuit Filed Challenging California Marriage Amendment

PR Newswire: “This lawsuit claims that section 7.5 of Article I violates the equal protection clause of the State Constitution. McCoy said, ‘we chose to bring this lawsuit in State Court rather than in Federal Court because sexual orientation is a protected class under California State Law and it is not recognized in Federal Law.’”

The complaint: Burns v. State of California

However, as the following comment tells us, this might be a blessing in disguise:

I love it! This would be a terrific opportunity to blow the lid off of the concept that sexual orientation should be a protected class at all. I would challed this law firm to prove there is any real way to measure or determine one’s sexual orientation the way there is one’s race, gender, or age. There is no DNA test, no ‘gay gene’ to prove one’s sexual orientation. We could prove, in court, that it is simply a lifestyle choice! How cool would that be? I’m serious. This could be the perfect venue to repeal the so-called sexual orientation protections that currently exist in California state law. Oh, and besides that, I would challege it on the basis that having such protections violates federal law, since federal law doesn’t recognize such protections. This could be terrific! Use this as the opportunity to PROVE people don’t get special protections for their lifestyle choices! That would be wonderful!

Karen Grube makes some excellent points! Why is an aberrant behavior being given protections in California state law that are not recognized in federal law? Should people get special protections (read: over and above the protections of those who do not participate in such behaviors??) for their lifestyle choices?

This is exactly why the "hate crimes" legislation currently being debated in Congress must not pass! Not only would there be special protections for an aberrant sexual deviancy, but there would be SPECIAL PUNISHMENT(S) FOR THOUGHTS OF THOSE WHO CLAIM THAT HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR IS A SEXUAL DEVIANCY!

Eligibility Dispute is Serious

The Obama File has several posts of interest regarding the question that seeks to answer Obama's eligibility under the U. S. Constitution's Article II, Section 1's "natural born" requirements.

How can a self-admitted British subject and citizen of Kenya ever be considered a "natural born" American citizen?

Despite the fact that this radio station titles their post with the incorrect question: KTBB's Question of the Day: Is There Enough Proof President Obama is a U.S. citizen? the comment section (347 comments and counting!) is filled with CORRECT QUESTIONS regarding this vital issue.

Also posted at The Obama File:

Eligibility Dispute Is Serious

A judge hearing one of the cases challenging Barack Obama's eligibility to be president has taken the unusual step of describing the dispute as a serious constitutional issue and further has begun adding letters of comment from the public to the court record.

Word of the action by U.S. Magistrate Judge Joel Schneider in Camden, N.J., comes from attorney Mario Apuzzo, who is handling the Kerchner vs. Obama case, which Apuzzo filed in January on behalf of Charles F. Kerchner Jr., Lowell T. Patterson, Darrell James Lenormand and Donald H. Nelson Jr.

Named as defendants are Barack Hussein Obama II, the U.S., Congress, the Senate, House of Representatives and former Vice President Dick Cheney along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

The case focuses on the alleged failure in Congress to follow the Constitution. That document, the lawsuit states, "provides that Congress must fully qualify the candidate 'elected' by the Electoral College Electors."

The Constitution provides, the lawsuit said, "If the president-elect shall have failed to qualify, then the vice president elect shall act as president until a president shall have qualified."

"There existed significant public doubt and grievances from plaintiffs and other concerned Americans regarding Obama's eligibility to be president and defendants had the sworn duty to protect and preserve the Constitution and specifically under the 20th Amendment, Section 3, a Constitutional obligation to confirm whether Obama, once the electors elected him, was qualified," the case explained. "

Congress is the elected representative of the American people and the people speak and act through them," the lawsuit said.

The defendants "violated" the 20th Amendment by failing to assure that Obama meets the eligibility requirements," the lawsuit said.

I had previously read (I believe it was at The Obama File) that the defendants (who have postponed presenting their evidence several times already) have a new deadline on June 29th. We shall see what happens.

Beck's Common Sense Book & God's Permissive Will

I just started reading Glenn Beck's new bestselling book, "Common Sense," and it's a very sobering task - to say the least! I almost feel like I don't want to share this information with my grown, adult children! They might wonder whether or not there is any REAL, genuine hope for our Constitutional Republic when they see what a horrendous mess all the Washington bureaucrats (especially the continually re-elected "lifetime" leftist progressives - the new buzz word for socialists) - have made of our once great, prosperous and celebrated nation!

The statistics shared by Beck in the first few chapters are astounding! We learn about the corrupt reshaping and redefining of America.


"America has let thieves into her home and that nagging in your gut is a final warning that our country is about to be stolen. Our Founding Fathers understood that WE are an intuitive people. If all of that is true, then it only makes sense that He would alert us to our impending loss. [link added - mine]

And now He is - shame on us for ignoring Him for so long."

The election of ObamaFRAUD is but one of a larger wake-up call from God to get our act together and save this nation from destruction through the coming tyranny of our out-of-control government!

We all need to DO SOMETHING! EVERYONE SHOULD BE OUT ON THE STREETS PROTESTING ON JULY 4, 2009!! Go to your barbecues in the evening.


Please don't use the excuse that this must be "God's Will." Do you think that Jesus was kidding that we are to watch, wait AND WORK until He returns for His Bride (all Christians everywhere)?

For the moment, I am going to veer away from the discussion on Beck's book. I want to share with you a conversation that I had years ago with a dear Christian friend named Susan Smith. It was on the topic of God's Perfect Will and whether or not there is such a thing as His Permissive Will that exists under, and within, His Perfect Will. I will explain.

As a reference, I am providing the link to where this conversation first occurred on my blog. It was in the comment section of Meaning of Katrina - A Sign?

Here is the portion of the conversation where we discussed God's Perfect Will and His Permissive Will that exists within His Perfect Will.

We had been discussing the criticisms that had been hurled at our nation by other countries around the world because of how the Katrina disaster was mishandled by the Bush Administration. I will pick up the conversation there.

Christine: ...some people don't like to read about Christians speculating what the recent disasters (tsunami, Gaza pullout, hurricane) mean. But I think that we ALL (including Christians!) NEED TO TAKE A HARD LOOK at ourselves to see what God is trying to show us and what message(s)/lesson(s) can be taught to each and every one of us from these events!

Susan: Hi Christine:

I do not think "upset" is the proper term to describe my feelings of sadness over the harsh and critical words I am reading about my country.

Can you name a country on earth that has blessed Israel more than the USA? When I moved to Israel more than three years ago, I was what one would call a gung-ho Christian Zionist.

Today, I KNOW God is in control and I believe the Gaza pullout is in HIS divine purpose. One can make the land an idol. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof. (ss)

Christine: Can you be more specific about the criticisms you are reading about your country? Are you talking about the U.S.? Which criticisms against America are you referring to? Unfortunately, there are PLENTY to go around and they are varied as can be!

I'm just trying to understand what is bothering you, Susan. Are you referring to the criticism that is rampant against the Bush Administration and evident in our news media? Or, the criticism over the war in Iraq? Or, the criticism being hurled at us by the Muslim terrorists? Or, the criticism that evangelical Christians have pointed out over the moral relativism that has taken hold in America through liberal secular legislation, judges and education? Or, ALL of the above?

One more thing. Do you see the increase in natural disasters and the decisions and happenings involving the land of Israel as signs of the "birth pains" of the End Times?

Jesus told us to watch for such things as these. The Scriptures are quite descriptive of what to watch for (as evident in Robert's Revelation 18 post). Of course, no one knows the "day or hour" but Jesus DID tell us to watch for the signs where our redemption could be near.

Do you think that the increase of all of these signs as predicted in Scripture is possible evidence that the marriage supper of the Lamb and of the Second Coming of Christ is getting closer?

Susan stated: "Today, I KNOW God is in control and I believe the Gaza pullout is in HIS divine purpose. One can make the land an idol. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof."

Christine: Let me ask you this. Do you think that it is possible that God, in His permissive will, allows the errors, sins, and mistakes of mankind (and their governments) to occur? Of course all of human history will lead to His ultimate divine purpose, but is all that happens to be considered His perfect will for us? I guess what I am trying to ask you is this: isn't the Bible filled with situations where Gods' Perfect Will wasn't followed and thus Israel, as a nation, needed to be rebuked and needed to be called back to repentance for her sins?

It is true that Gods' Perfect Will, WILL be accomplished, despite the fact that so many of mankind currently live in disobedience and rebellion to it. In Gods' permissive will, evil, sin and death is allowed here for now. Even Jesus said, "in this world, you will have trouble, but take heart for I have overcome the world."

The evil, sin and death won't be gone forever until all is accomplished. It is through the Law, the Prophets and the Church (people, not a building) of Jesus Christ that people are called to repentance. We are to be salt and light within this world to those who are lost and perishing.

Yes. God is ultimately in control of the destiny of human history. But Jesus gave us the commandment to go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Evangelism is our assignment here on earth. Part of that evangelism is pointing out the need for people to see their sinfulness because they have broken the Holy Law of God. Without that Law and their realization of their sin, they cannot be truly born again in Jesus Christ. They risk becoming "false converts" as is pointed out in "The Way of the Master" book.

Here I go again! Posting my next blog subject here in a reply! OK. I'll end here for now and I await your reply.

Please know that I love and respect you, my sister in Christ, and I am not doing this to start an argument between us but to seriously discuss our differences on this issue.

Love in Him,

Christine: I found this quote in an article I was reading today:

"A venerable confession of faith states it rightly: "God from eternity, decrees or permits all things that come to pass, and perpetually upholds, directs, and governs all creatures and all events; yet so as not in any way to be the author or approver of sin nor to destroy the free will and responsibility of intelligent creatures."

I think that is a good definition of what is meant by Gods' "permissive" will.

God's will is God's will... I have never been able to find in scripture much support for the idea of God's "permissive" and his "perfect" will in my life even though I am aware there are many Christians who believe there is such a thing. God is not limited by time and every single day we live is no surprise to him. HE knows the future.

"One can make the land an idol. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof." I wrote in my previous post. This morning I am in charge of devotions for our HQ staff here in Jerusalem. I plan to share that the written Word of God can also become an idol. My mentor told me this years ago, and she is correct.

Thank you for assuring me you are not trying to start an argument, Christine. I do not contribute to blogs in order to debate... I contribute to be a blessing, not a curse and I do the best I am able to follow the leading of the Lord with my choice of words. Words are powerful regardless of who uses them.

Truth is truth, regardless of who speaks it. There are times when silence ministers much more than words. Yours in Christ,


Hi Susan,

Thanks for responding. I'm glad you were able to find the comment among the tirade of Thomas.

Stephen warned me long ago that Thomas wasn't a person "seeking", just a person who tends to mock, disparage and destroy the witness of Christian believers. It took a while for me to reach the same conclusion, thus, I have taken the advice of the Bible and have "shaken the dust from my sandals and left that house"...so to speak.

Mat 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

Mar 6:11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Luk 9:5 And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

First, I want to admit that I could be wrong and you, absolutely right about the "permissive" will idea. But, I have found evidence of this throughout Scripture in the accounts of the disobedience, reprimands of the Lord, repentance of the people and reconciliation back to relationship with God in the Old Testament. I also find evidence of God's permissive will within the Lord's prayer:

Matthew 6:10 KJV - Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven.

Jesus was praying that the Father's will be done here on the earth as it is in heaven. This indicates to me that God's Perfect Will IS DONE, ALWAYS, in heaven. After inequity was found in Lucifer and he was cast out of heaven as Satan (along with 1/3 of the angels who fell with him and became demons), Scripture tells us that the remaining angels were "sealed" by God. But obviously, since man was tempted by Satan to sin and we live in a fallen world here, God's Perfect Will is not always done here on earth.

1 Timothy 5:21 KJV - I charge [thee] before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

God's angels can no longer "fall" today. Following the angelic revolt of Lucifer (now Satan), God "elected" or permanently confirmed the holiness of the angels who chose to remain loyal to Him. God has apparently given them a special grace of perseverance to enable them to permanently retain their position as holy angels.

The question that arises in my mind is if God's Perfect Will was always done here would we need to pray for it to be done here?

Jesus told us that "in this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! For I have overcome the world!"

The ultimate victory is clear because of Jesus sacrificial death and resurrection, but it will be realized totally and unequivocably (even by nonbelievers) at the culmination of all of history at the Lord's second coming.

I previously shared:

"A venerable confession of faith states it rightly: "God from eternity, decrees or permits all things that come to pass, and perpetually upholds, directs, and governs all creatures and all events; yet so as not in any way to be the author or approver of sin nor to destroy the free will and responsibility of intelligent creatures."

And I stated:

"I think that is a good definition of what is meant by Gods' "permissive" will."

I think what I may have left out is the important fact that God's current "permissive" will exists within His Perfect Will. It's not to be regarded as a separate entity.

Revelation reveals the idea of permissive will in the following verse:

Revelation 22:11, 12

11 Let the one who is doing wrong continue to do wrong; the one who is vile, continue to be vile; the one who is good, continue to do good; and the one who is holy, continue in holiness."

And the judgment at the culmination of all of human history reveals what will eventually be done:

12 "See, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me, to repay all according to their deeds. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."

There are probably many more examples that I could post, but I just wanted to share these few for the purpose of clarity.

Again, if I am misinformed about this then I apologize and I thank you for pointing out my error.

Love in the Lord,


Good morning, my West Coast sister! I am glad you finally decided to get up today. It is almost my bedtime across the ocean, but I was pleased to see your post before I log off for the night. No apology is necessary, Christine. Debating or arguing or even discussions with many words about God's "perfect" or "permissive" will, simply do not interest me. It does not matter to me, who is right or wrong. I refuse to have anything to do with foolish or stupid disputes, because I know they produce quarrels (see 2TI 2:23).

Christ crucified is all that matters to me, because He is my life. Praise His Name. I often sin when I use many words, so I will close by telling you it is a joy to call you my "sister"... even if 'crazy lady' sometimes brings a smile to my face. I am going to log off now, BEFORE you reply and get me tickled before bedtime! God bless you, my friend. Much love from the Middle East,


Our debate essentially ended there. As Susan stated, we didn't want there to remain a "foolish or stupid dispute."

However, I think that those Christians who refuse to stand up against the Obama Administration - all the while KNOWING how damaging it has been for our nation, might need a wake-up call.

I think that Glenn Beck's book will do just that.

You see, perhaps it is God's Will that we DO FIGHT TO GET OUR NATION BACK ON THE RIGHT TRACK AGAIN!

What do you think?

Back to Beck's book.

Glenn doesn't spare any one of the two major political parties in his criticism against them. Both are heavily responsible for the mess that we find ourselves in today.

Chapter two is entitled, "Money - The Real Opiate of the Masses." Sounds familiar...doesn't it? Recall the old adage, "the love of money is the root of all evil." The truth is, the MISUSE of money by our Federal Government is just as damaging! One of the subtitles in the chapter reads, "Debt: How They Purchased Our Silence and Subservience." The discussion about our trillions of dollars national debt on the next few pages is MIND-BOGGLING! Glenn shares it in simple terms (especially good for the person who might fall asleep trying to read a chart or diagram) that will make you sad...AND MAD!

The second subtitle of Chapter Two reads, "Now How Much Would You Pay? The World's Largest Ponzi Scheme." Recall the Bernie Madoff scheme where he bilked investors out of $50 billion? Glenn states, "but that looks like a petty theft compared to the money stolen via Washington's Ponzi schemes."

He's absolutely correct. Read that chapter - and weep. Social Security is labeled as a great example of a "legal Ponzi scheme."

In the past, I have mentioned that the abortion of over 53,831,150 (as of 6/25/09 at 8:17 a.m. PT) CHILDREN has had an enormously devastating affect upon the Social Security system in this country. It is not the only reason the system is in trouble - but can you see how it MUST have had an enormous effect upon it?

When Social Security was created, abortion was considered a horrendous, illegal evil in our society and nation. Now? We have a usurper in the office of the presidency who is SO EXTREME that he voted AGAINST the Born Alive Infants Protection Act of 2004!

I wonder. If someone did the math on this American Holocaust against vulnerable, innocent babies who cannot speak for themselves - and the children and grandchildren that they COULD HAVE HAD - what affect would it have had on preventing the Social Security Ponzi scheme?

Back to the book.

The third subtitle in Chapter Two reads, "But Wait, There's More! Our $100 Trillion Bipartisan Betrayal." When you read how badly our government has handled Medicare, you would have to be OUT OF YOUR MIND to think that Obama's latest scheme - "Universal Health Care," would EVER BE MANAGED CORRECTLY OR SUCCESSFULLY.


The lecherous politicians who lied to us about funding Social Security and Medicare are the same ones who are now trumpeting "free" universal health care. and instead of pointing at their track record and laughing hysterically, we sit by and listen receptively, as though this time might somehow be different.

When politicians want money, they traditionally write a bill that provides lots of overly optimistic details about the particular program they want to fund. That's why it's so interesting that Obama's request for $634 billion to be put into a "universal health-care reserve fund" really doesn't come with a plan about where the money will come from who will be eligible for it, or how it will be spent.

Common sense should tell us that, given our experience with the Social Security Trust Fund, the very notion of another "reserve fund" is absolute insanity.

Did you see any of the Obama infomercial on his latest Ponzi scheme of "health care" last night? Did you notice the looks on several people in the audience there? To me, their faces looked quite incredulous. I don't think that they were buying what Obama was trying to sell.

There was a huge contrast between a doctor (on video) who inadvertently seemed to be advocating ending the life of the elderly whose continued care in the hospital is "too expensive" vs. the woman (there in person) who spoke of her then 99-year-old mother who had a transplant and is now 105 years old. Who should make these decisions on when a person should live or die? God. That's who.

Back to Beck's book.

In the fourth subtitle in Chapter Two, Glenn writes, "But That's Not All! Act Now and We'll Also Include a Financial Meltdown!" In this section, Glenn explains how our debt to China isn't something to say "whew!" about. Some have been erroneously convinced that "our ship missed the iceberg and is not really sinking." The truth is, "but it is sinking...and so are the lifeboats."

I know. All of this bad news is hard to take. But what's better? To know the truth or keep our heads in the sand??

Glenn discusses inflation. Have you already seen prices going up? I have - especially at the grocery store! But this is NOTHING - yet. As our dollar gets weaker - so will inflation increase. Be forewarned.

I have a lot more to share, but will continue this post later today. Chapter Three discusses, "The Political Weapon of Choice: The U.S. Tax Code." The last several paragraphs of that chapter (as Glenn often says) will make blood shoot out of your eyes!

He ends Chapter Two with this:

Our legacy to our children need not be a lifetime of servitude to our country's creditors--but the insanity must end now. The time available to save our country will run out well before the money does.

Wake up America!!! And DO SOMETHING!

My conversation with Susan Smith.

LA Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust

Update 6/26/09:

Found this essay on God's Permissive Will via Geocities.com.; written by Gregory B. Dill.


Here is another essay. This one reminds me so much of what has happened here in America as a result of the election of Obama.

God's Perfect Will or His Permissive Will: The Choice Is Yours

Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us; That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles. And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD. And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel , Go ye every man unto his city. 1 Samuel 8:19-22

The nation of Israel experienced the blessings of being God's chosen people. During the oppression of their years in Egypt , during their forty years wandering in the wilderness, and their long awaited entrance into the Promised Land, God had led them and provided for their every need.

Now the theocracy was being rejected. The people were demanding a king to rule over them, even though this went against the counsel of the Prophet Samuel. They were disregarding the Holy Spirit's leading of God's man: Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel.

It is a dangerous thing when God's people do not acknowledge the heart of those who preach His Word. Hebrews 13:7 says, Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation.

God desired a people who were separated from other nations; He wanted Israel to follow Him. Samuel knew that a king would take Israel away from God's divine direction. He knew they would experience difficulties and war, but the people were blinded by great visions of grandeur and wealth.

Because the Israelites chose to follow the wrong king, they relinquished God’s promises. They gave up God's best and settled for His permissive will. Psalm 106:13-15 states, They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel: But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

My friend, God may allow you your way, but you will not prosper or be as productive for Him. You will not experience the blessings that come from following the King of Kings. The Israelites paid a high price for their choice, and their country has never experienced the same level of greatness.

When we do our own thing instead of following God's plan for our lives, we experience heartache, disappointment, and loss of prosperity. Isn't this too high a price? Let's purpose to follow God so that we can experience the blessings of His perfect will.

The Gov. Mark Sanford Mystery (2nd Update)

When Fox News had reported that Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina (who had been missing for several days and even his wife didn't know where he was!) was now "found" and the story given was that he was hiking in the Appalachian Mountains; the story just didn't seem plausible to me.

However, the blogger at RepubX has a post up that shares a Russian conspiracy theory that explains Sanford's disappearance over the course of several days.

It is quite a fantastic story; one that is hard to believe, actually. Who would go to a Socialist Russian embassy in Canada to seek help to escape from the Socialist/Marxist tyranny of the ObamaFRAUD Administration? Does that seem weird to anyone else?

But who knows whether or not it's the truth?

I have often been accused of being a "conspiracy theorist" by my detractors here at this blog. I've been labeled as a "tin foil hat" member, a "birther" and several other crude descriptions that I'd rather not repeat. However, the "natural born citizen" questions about Obama are growing by leaps and bounds in the minds of thousands of Americans each and every day. They are all are waking up to notice the truth of the matter - that Obama can't be a natural born citizen of the United States because his father was a British Subject and never naturalized to the U.S. For this obvious reason (despite what the sealed COLB says), many more people want to know the truth about Obama's eligibility.

Back to the subject at hand.

I wasn't previously aware that Governor Mark Sanford wanted to secede from the United States government. That was news to me. However, I did know that he didn't want to take Stimulus money from the ObamaFRAUD administration. Thus, I had my own suspicions when I learned that Sanford had gone missing.

Here is my comment at RepubX blog:

So....I guess this means that Sanford wasn't really hiking when he went missing? Who believed such a bogus story anyway?

The theory posed here is way beyond what I thought had happened. I figured that ObamaFraud's goons got ahold of Sanford and scared the hell out of him over the course of several days. Among other things (like discouraging him from challenging Obama in the next election) the ObamaBORG Bots made Sanford "see the light" regarding taking the Stimulus funds. That way, the ObamaBORG has power over him.

But this Russian conspiracy theory? Seems way out there, to me.

However, living in America today is like being trapped in a raging Twilight Zone with the lunatic fringe in charge! So, is the Russian conspiracy theory plausible? I don't know. But I guess anything is possible.

There is a movement going on in Texas to secede. Saw this on Glenn Beck. There are 250,000 people who have already signed on to do so.

Hope it doesn't come down to all of this. I'm still praying that one of the eligibility cases against Obama gets a hearing by a judge.

There are some commentators at the blog who refuse to believe in the Russian conspiracy angle. Who could blame their disbelief? It's so hard to know the truth anymore.

However, one commentator named "ij" wrote a comment that sent chills up my spine:

Just seen this and was wondering if this story in any way connected to the story you just put up? Weird stuff going on everywhere, that's for sure... Nothing is impossible anymore, and I think everyone is questioning everything these days.

Unexpected death of Attorney General of S.C?

The State: Prosecutor Evans’ death shocks S.C.
Renowned state official dies unexpectedly

Note this excerpt:

“It was completely unexpected,” said McMaster, who confirmed her death to The State, saying it was a health issue, but didn’t confirm any details. He had talked to family members.

How suspiciously vague can you get!!!??? Stay tuned for further information.

Chilling....absolutely chilling....

6/23/09 Update:

Fox News Channel is now reporting:

Report: Missing South Carolina Governor Traveled to Argentina, Not Appalachian Trail

Well, at least I was correct to not believe the bogus "hiking the Appalachian Trail" story!!

Also, the RepubX story sounded to far out there to be believed.

So, what was Gov. Sanford's trip to Argentina all about? The T.V. broadcast on this story didn't give those details.


As it turns out, Sanford was nowhere near the Appalachian Trail. He was in Buenos Aires, Argentina, thousands of miles away in South America.

"I wanted to do something exotic," Sanford told The State. "It's a great city."

The governor plans to hold a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

It appears there was a sliver of truth to Sawyer's explanation. Sanford said he had considered hiking the Appalachian Trail, and told his staff he might do so, before bailing for South America.

But he said he didn't know why his staff provided that explanation to the media and that he couldn't figure out why his disappearance drew so much attention.

What??? He wanted to "do something exotic?" ON FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND??? Most fathers spend time with their families on that day.

This is still a very strange, developing story. Will the public ever really know the truth about it?

Sanford back from South America; press conference at 2 p.m.
Governor says he never hiked Appalachian Trail; says he cruised along the coast of Buenos Aires to unwind after stressful legislative session

This governor WAS FORCED by the ObamaFRAUD BORG BULLIES and the clueless Dems in that state's Congress to take Stimulus money that he didn't want to take!!

What's wrong with this picture, people?

It appears that the focus is now off of this battle and now aimed at Sanford's "disappearance." I would bet that if he told anyone where he was going, the OBAMABORG would have followed. Just a guess, on my part.

However, what I'd like to know is why did he go to Argentina? What was there that may have been helpful to this man and his current dilemma?

Was he threatened in some way? Was he escaping an assassination attempt?

Time will tell as the story unravels - that is - if we can get any kind of truth from the SLOBBERING LOVE AFFAIR Obama Media of Mass Deception.

P.S. Have you noticed how many conservatives are being targeted, verbally abused and attacked by the liberal left political hacks and in the media?

Sarah Palin (STILL!! Even after the election is over! She scares them...)

Rush Limbaugh

Sean Hannity

Glenn Beck

Gov. Mark Sanford

and...there are many more.

Update @ 3:45 p.m. PT

By now, everyone has heard of "the affair" that Gov. Mark Sanford is having with "a woman from Argentina" and that was the excuse for his five day absense.

On Special Report, Charles Krauthammer just stated that this is so bizarre that it smells of an "intentional political suicide."

RepubX expresses doubt about this story: How convenient - Gov. Stanford resigns from chair of Gov association

Copy of the post:

Governor Stanford admits "alleged" affair, and as convenience would once again have it, he has resigned from the chair of the Republican Governors association.

As you may know, Governor Stanford was suing the Obama administration for intrusive actions into making states' dependent on Federal government through the so-called Stimulus package.

So, now we've happened to have two Republicans just come out with having a affairs.

This wreaks of Chicago-style "dirty politics" written all over it. Threaten with intimidation and give the Governor an official way out to step down. How much you want to bet the Republican Governors Association gets an "Obama administration" friendly new chair person?

And .. how much you want to bet Stanford will resign from his Governor position as well. The threat of seceding and suing for the stimulus package has been removed from SC - at least temporarily.

Did you notice that his wife didn't appear at the news conference? Did you hear that she is willing (already) to work things out with her husband?

Did anyone find Mr. Sanford's rambling during the news conference very strange??

Does this whole so-called affair sound plausible? Maybe it is. I don't know for sure.

However, we may get hints of whether it is true or just a set-up if we find out that RepubX is right - that a "friendly to the Obama Admin. new chair person" will fill in for Sanford. If that happens, then I think it might be evidence that the suspicions of RepubX, me, and Charles Krauthammer might very well be valid. Again, time will tell.

One closing thought. Who would ever want to get into politics in this kind of atmosphere?

Obama Eliminates "For The People" in Speech

During the Glenn Beck Program on Fox News Channel this afternoon, Glenn ran a video clip of one of Obama's speeches (dated sometime this month - June) that included a portion where Obama stated, "[We are] a government of the people and by the people." So, my question is - why didn't he include "for the people" as well? Why was that left out of his speech? That really bugged me.

As I got to thinking about it, I began to believe that it was purposely left out. It is the difference between what a president of a Constitutional Republic would believe and represent vs. a president with the tyrannical attitudes, policies, and dictatorship methods of a Socialistic/Marxist/Communist ideology - which is the direction that ObamaFRAUD and his cohorts want to take this nation.

Obama certainly doesn't appear to be "for the people" in Iran. Take a look at the contrasting photos over at The Obama File. There are millions of protesters who took to the streets for over a week in Iran, willing to be beaten and killed - all because they are desperate for freedom from the tyranny they live by under the Ayatollah. The fact that it was a fraudulent election cannot be denied. There are reports that more than 100% turnout occurred in 50 voting areas. What we have here is an Ayatollah and his cronies illegally taking out the legitimate votes (and voices!!) of the masses, and in dictator-like style, threaten the protesters with death in order to fraudulently anoint the crazy (already hand-picked) Iminajihad as the victor.

The Iranians are begging for support from Obama and the American people!! The American people are responding but Obama? He goes golfing!

Here's how The Obama File sums it up:

It's bad enough that Obama took off a few hours during the crisis to go golfing, but he also took his self-described foreign policy expert, Joe Biden, with him. Shouldn’t Joe have been back at the bunker, working one of the biggest foreign-policy crises in this administration, instead of literally puttering around?

Remember, it was Joe Biden who warned donors at a Seattle fund-raiser last October.

"Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America.

"Watch. We're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters.

Well, Joe, it's only 5 months, and Obama has four or five crisis going for him -- and all at one time
• Iran's Revolutionary Guards say they will crush any protests...
• Riot police use tear gas, fire live bullets in air...
• North Korea threatens to harm USA if attacked...
• Al Qaeda says would use Pakistani nukes on USA...
• Somali Pirates could take Obama hostage...

-- and the two of you are out on the links.

Plus, when anyone criticizes his actions (or, in this case - inaction!) the only reply we get from Obama or Gibby boy is, "we won."

This reveals why Obama only seems to regard being a government "of the people" and "by the people." He was elected by more people than John McCain was - "by the people." He campaigned on certain issues that attracted people to vote for him (many of which, btw, have turned into broken campaign promises) so now that he is our bogus POTUS, he has the mentality of being king "of the people."

This is why he left out describing himself as being a leader "for the people!!" He is not!! He is not FOR THE PEOPLE!! He is a narcissistic tyrant of the worst kind - intent on ruling over people instead of being A SERVANT OF THE PEOPLE - WHICH IS WHAT OUR PRESIDENT SHOULD BE!

Obama is into power - and lots of it. Global power, in fact. Lame Cherry blog exposes: "In studying the motive of operation in the illegal firing of Inspector General Gerald Walpin by Barack Obama, we find revealed the triggers which move the Obama group to destroy those who stand in their way."


This is what follows Obama in his motives. He really doesn't care about the kickbacks. What he cares about is Congressional investigators getting ahold of this and their starting to link what happened with Walpin to the ACORN, to the 300 million illegally coming into his campaign from overseas to just who was pushing his rising star in where that money was coming from.

Gerald Walpin uncovered the submerged iceberg. This is what is Obama has in worse Watergate fashion than anything Nixon ever did with his massacres and attempting to get government agencies to destroy an American initiated in high crimes and felonies.
The same pattern evolved from Lawrence Sinclair in being turned into a political prisoner by the DC US Attorney's office for Obama before Obama was even in power. Mr. Walpin is now being turned into political refuse by the same smear tactics.
To have this kind of connections, means Obama is not the source, but that the most powerful people in left wing globalist intelligence are running this for him.

It is following the money to see the operation, but the motives of Barack Obama are ones of using key Justice Department contacts to remove those who are in the process of exposing that money flow.

This is likely what eliminated New York Governor Eliot Spitzer as he knew too much in what the Obama scam out of Europe was doing. Spitzer wrote about it and then went silent again.

The difference is this time that Charles Grassley, Republican is looking at this, and he has an ally in Democrat Chris Dodd, as Dodd was ruined by Obama in this banking assault on America.

Barack Obama will be impeached if key Democrats figure out how much Obama has used and disposed of them, just like he did to Blagojevich, Spitzer, Sinclair and what he is doing to Gerald Walpin.

The bogus things the liberal smear machine said about Bush and Cheney are nothing compared to the mounting Everest size pile of evidence against Barack Obama of Axelrod Inc. It is time to protect Mr. Walpin and kick this investigation into gear in the illegal use of government agencies to harass Americans into silence and the trillions in Obama funds in kickbacks bribing all of these people.

Time will tell.



Besides the Obama File website and the Lame Cherry blog, you can also get a lot of up-to-date information about the bogus POTUS and his fraud administration over at Repubx blog.

A blog called "The Betrayal" has posted an article that states, The Narcissist in Chief: Barack Hussein Obama, Narcissists suffer from self-loathing

Copy of article:

Canada Free Press published

By Joy Tiz Friday, June 19, 2009

Telegraph reporter Stephanie Gutmann describes her reaction to Barack Obama’s appearance in Berlin: “After it was over I picked up the phone and called a friend back home. ‘It’s worse than we thought,’ I told him. ‘The guy’s actually crazy.’”

Guttman was talking about candidate Obama’s agenda as he presented it that day, in which he promised to take on the terrorists in Afghanistan, take on the drug dealers, rebuild Afghanistan, eliminate the building nuclear threat, secure all loose nukes, decrease arsenals from another era, form a new global partnership that will end terror networks, redistribute wealth, save the planet, withdraw all troops from Iraq, keep the oceans from rising, end famine, and reduce carbon output. Most politicians would have quit after two or three such ambitious proposals.

Incredibly, there are Obamanutz among us who honestly don’t realize that Barack Obama is a narcissist of the worst kind. Most people erroneously presume that narcissism is something akin to egomania or an unusually high sense of self-esteem. The truth is the reverse. Narcissists suffer from self-loathing, not too much self-love.

It takes a bit of narcissism to wake up in the morning and think, “Hey, I really ought to be leader of the free world.” Coming to such a conclusion in the fourth grade is, to say the least, ambitious. Having some narcissistic traits does not a narcissist make. However, according to the Encyclopedia of Mental Disorders, grandiosity is the most important single trait in narcissism.

Obama’s grandiosity is striking. It’s in his body language and posturing. It’s in his derisive comments about “bitter clingers.” In office, Obama has demonstrated early on his sense of entitlement and his belief that he is above the law.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM IV-TR) is the diagnostic manual used by mental health professionals. A diagnosis of narcissism requires five out of nine characteristics. Note these traits must endure over time and must not be reactions to a particular situation or environmental stressor:

Grandiose sense of self-importance.
Preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, beauty, or ideal love.
Sense of specialness, belief he can only be understood by or should associate only with other special or high-status individuals or institutions.
Need for excessive admiration.
Heightened sense of entitlement, leading to unreasonable expectations that others should treat him especially favorably or comply automatically with his expectations.
Tendency to be inter personally exploitative. A person with NPD does not hesitate in taking advantage of others to meet his own ends.
Lack of empathy, an inability or unwillingness to recognize or identify with the feelings or needs of others.
An envy of other people, or conversely, a belief that other people envy him.
A tendency toward arrogant behavior or attitude.
In his essay on Obama’s narcissism, Sam Vaknin references Obama’s haughty body language and condescending attitude. Vaknin also points out Obama’s “emotion free language.”

At the same time Bill Ayers was hijacking our schoolchildren, the popular culture was decomposing. With the advent of the Great Society and the disintegration of the nuclear family, the decline of our pop culture parallels the disintegration of our educational system. Radicals grabbed control over both. The entertainment industry has made pernicious narcissism seem unexceptional.

The narcissist in chief’s cavernous lack of empathy becomes more obvious as his presidency rolls on. It could hardly be called empathic behavior when Obama decided to drop all charges against Cole bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri before Obama’s scheduled meeting with the families of the Cole victims.

Barack Obama lied to us throughout the campaign and continues to do so as the president. How did over half of the country not notice? The simple answer is that we are just not very good at recognizing when someone is lying to us. Our deception detection skills are inadequate.

Barack Obama is acting out his pathology at our expense. His appalling treatment of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown could be written off as another example of this administration’s incompetence. But it also looks as if Obama also has his own ax to grind with the Brits and lacks the emotional maturity to deal with it like a grown-up.

When children experience overwhelming trauma, they protect themselves as best they can with a variety of defense mechanisms. There is no question that life for little Barry Soetoro was traumatic, full of chaos and abandonment, as well as genuine fear. The adults in his life betrayed him and taught him hate and mistrust. Otto Kernberg, in his research on narcissism, states that it evolves as a defense against a cold and unsympathetic parent. The child withdraws part of himself from the unavailable parent and turns it back toward himself, creating a grandiose sense of self. Healthy emotional development was just not possible in young Barry’s environment.

The truth about No Drama Obama is that his early life was perpetual drama, which had to have done plenty of damage. What is most disturbing is his failure to deal with it. People do recover from early trauma and abuse, but only if they acknowledge it and allow themselves to experience the feelings that they had to block when they were too little to manage them. Eventually, the experiences have to be integrated into the adult personality; and not infrequently, abuse survivors benefit from professional support.

The current leader of the free world is not in touch with reality. The toady press gleefully accepts his fabrications and denials. And mental health professionals have shown a remarkable lack of curiosity about the mental health of the President of the United States.

It’s not in the nation’s best interest to put a narcissist in the White House. Bill Clinton’s debauchery demonstrated his willingness to put his need for narcissistic supply ahead of the well-being of the country he was hired to serve. Clinton’s narcissism was manifestly less toxic than Barack Obama’s.

For all of the narcissist’s grandiosity, he is driven by a relentless need to pursue and maintain a source of narcissistic supply. A narcissist is at his most menacing when he perceives a threat to his perpetual supply of admiration and affirmation. No drama Obama is already showing the truculence typical of narcissists when they sense a threat to supply. The same president who remains steadfast in his willingness to meet with Iran’s barbarian in chief, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, is bleating about imagined desecration by Fox News. That would be the same network which liberal hack, Terry McAuliffe, applauded for its fair and balanced reporting during the 2008 primaries.

The narcissist in chief has been needling private citizens on talk radio and Fox News for insufficient veneration. The leader of the free world is impelled to use his standing to rebuke talk radio hosts while Iran is on fire, his economic policies are having catastrophic repercussions, and lunatics in North Korea are planning to launch a missile at Hawaii.

For the narcissist, nothing matters more than maintaining his supply. From Obama’s perspective, being chided by a cable news commentator really is a more pressing exigency than the possibility of Iran amassing nuclear weapons.

It’s no coincidence that many, if not most domestic abusers are narcissists. Domestic violence experts concur that the most perilous time for the victim is when she endeavors to flee from her abuser. The victim’s abandonment is felt as an inexorable threat to his narcissistic supply and will evoke panic and rage.

As Obama’s poll numbers drop and continue to slide as his ruinous failures accumulate, expect his acting out to escalate. This is not the psychological profile of a guy we want as commander in chief.

[Note: Go to site for additional article links within the text.]

There are certainly a ton of writings out there regarding Obama's narcissism.

I must admit, prior to reading that article, I traditionally thought that narcissism happened as a result of too much self-love. But now, the reasons for a LOT of the negative and ruinous policies that Obama is using against America become crystal clear to me. Especially when I learned that his narcissism is more likely akin to his own self-loathing!!

If a person does not have the emotional maturity to love oneself (in a proper way - of course) how could they ever truly love another person, or people, or Americans, in general? Does Obama love God? Has he ever expressed it? I haven't seen it. Instead, I see a hatred of true Christians. Obama appears to prefer those who live in a kind of spiritual oblivion. He reminds me of Pilot when he asked Jesus, "What is truth?" Pilot didn't really want the answer - neither does Obama.

Obama shows disturbing signs of hating and loathing "We The People" patriots of the United States of America. This is another reason why he would not utter the words "For the People" in that speech.

For once, Obama was ironically telling the truth about his true feelings. Through the elimination of the words "For The People" in that speech, he demonstrates over and over again - with each passing day - that they are three words which he absolutely does not believe in.

Opened my email this evening and found this:

Mousavi Accuses Obama of 'Misleading the World'

Here's a blog post about the letter:

Pajamas Media: Sunday Morning in Iran, A Letter from Mousavi’s Office

Liked this very informative comment there:


Mr. Obama has been clearly taken off guard and shows signs of uncertainty…what we were warned by the unsinkable Joe Biden would happen and VOILA! So when the man talks out of the both sides of his mouth and on the one hand says that he is “worried” about the people of Iran but then in the same statement…a few sentences later says: oh but we want to dialogue with someone regarding the nukes…you’ve got to go, HUH? I’m sorry but doesn’t that smack of a mixed message to you? PLUS aren’t you the LEAST bit suspicious of that behavior given Mr. Biden’s YEARS of sending his staffers do footsi-playing with Mullah reps throughout the years of his having headed up the Senate Foreign Relations Committe…meetings in Rome between his staffers, Mullah reps & the disgusting Baroness Emma Nicholson of Winterbourne, fundraisers for Mr. Biden’s senate reelection campaigns at the houses of millionaire Iranians who were known for their support of the regime…come on…you cannot just give an emtional and p.c. response to these issues. Especially that even the flakey Europeans have spoken tougher than “O”!

Jun 20, 2009 - 5:28 pm

Bet most people (like me) didn't know this about Biden! Now we know what most have already suspected...their silence is complicity!!!

Only 265 more comments to read at that site! But it might be worth it. Learned a lot with just the first three!

Would You Rather Have the Wages or the Gift?

That is the ultimate question that Dr. David Jeremiah asks near the end of the video presentation called "Finding Freedom Through Slavery" (below) in his new series, "The Upside Down Life." The title sounds like quite the paradox* - doesn't it? You will discover the truth about that statement when you view the video!!

Before you click on the video link, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish all of the dads out there a very Happy Father's Day! At our home, it's "Father's Day Weekend" - not just one day...ha ha. Anyway, we have a big seafood fest planned - we found lobster selling for $6.00 a pound at Costco! (Correction: The lobster was from Major Market!) ;-) Some family time is planned - like playing monopoly on the Wii (my son ALWAYS WINS!) and some backyard activities too. It's a day to get away from work, the computer, and any other distraction that might take us away from family time.

But before you turn off your computers today and even if you just returned from church, it is my hope that you will take my recommendation to view and listen to Dr. David Jeremiah's lesson called Finding Freedom Through Slavery from his "The Upside Down Life" series.

It is excellent, people!!!

Remember, if time is short you can "fast forward" to the sermon. But do watch the 1:20 introduction at the beginning of the video. The lesson starts at 18:05.

God bless your day!


*P.S. Please keep in mind that the term "slavery" being used in this sermon is not meant to downplay, insult or hurt anyone in the African American community who have suffered, or have known others who have suffered greatly under racial slavery in the past.

Inevitable Accomplishment Of God's Purpose

While reading through a thread of comments yesterday, I ran across the following statement:

"All that is evil is defended by liberals."

Do you think that is an accurate statement? Or, is it just an opinion?

So much of the current chaos in our nation today is happening as a result of liberal leftist ideology. Much of it goes against what is written in the Bible as "holy and righteous" in the eyes of God. The liberal leftist stance on abortion and homosexuality are just two examples of social issues that fly in the face of God's Holy Word and what He deems as righteous.

One glaring example of this fact is the recent battle that occurred between Bill O'Reilly and Salon.com editor, Joan Walsh on the topic of late term abortions. Here is a link to the video. Here's the gist of the argument:

"...some in the left wing press are blaming me for inciting the murder of late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller. A domestic terrorist shot the doctor dead, and zealots say my reporting on Tiller motivated the man, even though there is absolutely no evidence of that. The accusers object to my using the term 'Tiller the baby killer,' which was the doctor's well-known nickname--which is in context because the state of Kansas has produced compelling evidence that Tiller sometimes terminated viable fetuses for trivial reasons... we are talking about a man who destroyed late-term fetuses [that] could live out of the womb for casual reasons. The truth often hurts, especially when an ideological media tries to hide it..."

Bill O'Reilly on the June 18 edition of The O'Reilly Factor

Bill tried to get an answer (three times!!) out of Ms. Walsh when he asked the question: "Does a fetus (or, unborn baby) have any rights?" The woman refused to answer that question. Why? Because if she said, "no," that would be indefensible. If she said, "yes," then Bill would have won the argument.

This fits the above statement very well.

"All that is evil (including late-term abortions) is defended by liberals."

I could list hundreds of examples. Perhaps you might like to add your own in the comment section.

In my previous post Jesus Is The Voice of Truth I ended the post saying,

"[I]n the end - all that transpires on this earth, the good, the beautiful, the bad, and the ugly - will one day culminate into eternal victory through Christ Jesus!! And, the purpose will all be for HIS GLORY! Praise the name of the LORD!!"

The reason I stated this is because the Bible reveals the sovereignty of God's plan. There will be the inevitable accomplishment of God's ultimate purpose.

As Christians, our faith and Bible study teaches us that even in the most devastating of times, God is still in control. Events occur in order to bring about His purposes. Bible prophecy students learn well that the nation of Israel is smack dab in the middle of what will occur at the culmination of history. There are so many prophecies that involve the nation of Israel that it is hard to miss Her significance.

God tells us, in Ezekiel, what He will do to Israel's enemies:

Ezekiel 38:4 - "I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen."

Ezekiel 38:16 - "It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against My land."

Ezekiel 39:2 - "and I will turn you around and lead you on, bringing you up from the far north, and bring you against the mountains of Israel."

In Dr. David Jeremiah's book, "What in the World Is Going On?" he writes:

Passages such as these confuse many people because of the seeming implication that God leads men to be evil or to do evil things. But the Bible never says that God instills evil in the hearts of men. Some would attempt to refute this claim by pointing out that during the Exodus, the Bible explicitly says that God hardened Pharaoh's heart. It does say that, of course, but he statement speaks about the nature of Pharaoh's heart, not about God overriding man's free will.

Interesting, isn't it? When you look at the phrase, "God hardened Pharaoh's heart," you could assume that it was God's doing that caused Pharaoh's heart to harden. But that would be incorrect. It was Pharaoh's rebellion against God (and His messenger - Moses) that caused the hardening of Pharaoh's own heart! It would be similar to the phrase, "Because Pharaoh rejects God (and His messenger, Moses), Pharaoh hardened his heart against God." God is the "passive object," so to speak, in this act of hardening.

Dr. Jeremiah goes on:

Some hearts are like clay; the sun's heat will harden them. Others are like wax; the sun will cause them to melt. It's not the sun's fault that it hardens one substance and melts the other; it all depends on the nature of the material. Pharaoh's heart was the sort that would harden when exposed to God's light. It had nothing to do with God coercing him to do evil.

The Old Testament, especially, is intended to show that God is the sovereign ruler over all. Even though men try to thwart His plan and wreak great destruction, God's purpose will always win out. When Ezekiel wrote that God will bring the enemy against His land, he was simply saying that God will bring these nations to the doom that their wickedness inevitably demands. Everyone accomplishes God's will in the end. Those who conform to His will accomplish it willingly; those who do not conform accomplish it inadvertently as an unwitting tool in His hands.

What a powerful concept! Those who do not conform to God's will still accomplish it - "inadvertently as an unwitting tool in His hands."

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is so simple that a child can grasp it. It reflects the simplicity of God's purpose. Ezekiel's prophecy identifies the defining purpose of God:

Ezekiel 38:16 - I will bring you against My land, so that the nations may know Me, when I am hallowed in you, O Gog, before their eyes.

Ezekiel 38:23 - Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 39:6 - Then they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 39:7 - So I will make My holy name known in the midst of My people Israel, and I will not let them profane My holy name anymore. Then the nations shall know I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 39:21-22 - I will set My glory among the nations; all the nations shall see My judgment which I have executed, and My hand which I have laid on them. So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day forward.

Dr. Jeremiah:

"God intends for people to recognize Him as the Lord God of heaven, whose name is holy, whose glory fills the universe, and whom men must recognize as sovereign if they are to find the peace and joy He desires for His people."

The sovereignty of God's plan is in rescuing His people. Ezekiel tells us that the ultimate outcome of the battle of Gog and Magog will be the salvation of the Jewish people:

Eze 39:25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;

Eze 39:26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made [them] afraid.

Eze 39:27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;

Eze 39:28 Then shall they know that I [am] the LORD their God, which caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.

Eze 39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Dr. Jeremiah:

Ezekiel's prophecy ends by extolling God's tender love and compassion toward His people. No matter how great the evil in men's hearts, no matter how much destruction and death that evil brings about, God's ultimate purpose in confronting that evil, in revealing His glory among the nations, and in bringing His own from the lands of the enemy is always to accomplish the salvation of His people.

He goes on to say that we all have an "axis of evil" within our hearts. It is the "sinful nature" that we inherited from Adam. We have a propensity for selfish evil that, if not controlled by the presence of God's Spirit, can run rampant and produce destruction in our own lives and in the lives of those around us.

Dr. Jeremiah mentions that it isn't our physical location (like living in Iran or Russia), but "where our hearts are" concerning God's will and our acceptance or rejection of the provision for our salvation - the gospel of Jesus Christ - that determines our eternal destiny. Jesus asks all of us, "Who do you say that I am?" It's interesting to note that within the question, the words of Jesus recorded in the Bible reveal who he is - the great I AM who is revealed in the Old Testament Scriptures!

All who believe and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior receive the Holy Spirit indwelling the heart. This transformation is a result of being redeemed through God's mercy, grace, love and forgiveness for our sins. This is when the evil of one's heart is transformed by God's love. A person who is truly transformed will want to obey God. Recall that Jesus said, "If you love me, keep my Commandments."

We, as sinful human beings are out of control without the presence of God's Spirit indwelling us. That is why Jesus told the disciples (and us!) that he would send "The Helper" - meaning, the Holy Spirit of God to teach us in the way of God and truth and bring to remembrance God's Holy Word in our lives. Without the guidance of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we would be like Pharaoh - hardening our hearts against God's will.

The comfort that every believer has is the fact that "no one can snatch us out of God's hands." Present events, no matter how evil and scary they are, will lead to the ultimate accomplishment of God's purposes. And believers will live in eternity with our Savior, Lord and King. Alleluia! Amen!!!

Jesus Is The Voice of Truth

Received a wonderfully encouraging email from my Christian Internet friend, Rocky Chambers. He has often told me that I can share anything that he sends to me on my message board or blog.

How timely is this message!! Not only for Rocky - in his own trying situation - but also for us all!

First, read his email. Second, pay close attention to the words of the song - The Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns (one of my favorites!). Third, view the video!

I had a word from God this morning I’d like to share. As you may know, my wife Paula and I are fighting Huntington’s disease. The Lord gave me the word fighting some months ago from the scripture where Jesus says, “forceful men are forcefully advancing the Kingdom of Heaven”.

This morning I was walking my dog Trooper. I was sharing with the Lord how I am feeling exhausted from this fight. I asked Him how much longer. Later as I was making the hour drive down to Freeport from Houston for a meeting I needed to attend today the Lord answered me. I was listening to a song called, ‘The Voice of Truth’. I suddenly found myself ‘in the song’. I can’t describe what happened to me any other way. I was conscious of still driving down the highway, but somehow I was also living this song. I was Peter in the boat and the Lord has called me to come out on the water. I can hear the wind and the waves laughing at me, reminding me of all the times I’ve failed. In that same moment I can see all of my circumstances, the fight I am in. I hear doubt, anxiety, fear all rising against me. Suddenly in that moment I look at Him as I am stepping out of the boat, His hand is out, calling to me and He says… ‘Do Not Be Afraid’.

I know my description here can’t even come close to doing the experience justice. Let me just say that in that moment ‘He touched me, He calmed me, He encouraged me, He strengthened me, He emboldened me, He established my faith’. The wind and the waves can laugh at me all they want, I am deaf to them. The fact that it ‘looks impossible’ means nothing as ALL of these other voices are drowned out by the voice of Truth saying…. ‘Do Not Be Afraid’.

Let me encourage everyone who reads this. The facts can say what they are. And they can laugh at you, mock you, tell you that what you are trying to do is impossible…but let me tell you, the Voice of Truth says…’nothing is impossible for him who believes’…. ‘Do Not Be Afraid’.

Rocky Chambers

The Voice of Truth - lyrics by Casting Crowns

Oh,what I would do to have
the kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I'm in
Onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown
Where Jesus is,
And he's holding out his hand

But the waves are calling out my name
and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
time and time again
"Boy, you'll never win,
you'll never win."

But the Voice of truth tells me a different story
the Voice of truth says "do not be afraid!"
and the Voice of truth says "this is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth

Oh, what I would do
to have the kind of strength it takes
To stand before a giant
with just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound
of a thousand warriors
shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

But the giant's calling out
my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
time and time again
"Boy you'll never win,
you'll never win."

But the voice of truth tells me a different story
the Voice of truth says "do not be afraid!"
and the Voice of truth says "this is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth

But the stone was just the right size
to put the giant on the ground
and the waves they don't seem so high
from on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
when I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
singing over me

But the Voice of truth tells me a different story
The Voice of truth says "do not be afraid!"
And the Voice of truth says "this is for my glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me (calling out to me)
I will choose to listen and believe (I will choose to listen and believe)
I will choose to listen and believe the Voice of truth

I will listen and believe
I will listen and believe the Voice of truth
I will listen and believe
'Cause Jesus you are the Voice of truth
And I will listen to you.. oh you are the Voice of truth

Thanks Rocky! Praying for you! Praying for Paula! Praying for our Nation!

As I was just praying, the Voice of Truth - the Holy Spirit spoke to me through a thought:

"The truth will come out. It always does."

It will happen, people! It will be in God's timing - not ours. But be encouraged by this!! For in the end - all that transpires on this earth, the good, the beautiful, the bad, and the ugly - will one day culminate into eternal victory through Christ Jesus!! And, the purpose will all be for HIS GLORY! Praise the name of the LORD!!

Glenn Beck:
There is nobody watching the store. Is there any decency in the world anymore? Obama's friend was dirty and corrupt! Obama lies and smears this honorable man! Is there a shred of decency?

Janet Contreras: The Letter

Glenn Beck: The Letter

June 17, 2009 - 10:36 ET

GLENN: I got a letter from a woman in Arizona. She writes an open letter to our nation's leadership:

Quote: I'm a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would horribly feel so disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind of nut job am I? Will you please tell me?

Well, these are briefly my views and issues for which I seek representation:

One, illegal immigration. I want you to stop coddling illegal immigrants and secure our borders. Close the underground tunnels. Stop the violence and the trafficking in drugs and people. No amnesty, not again. Been there, done that, no resolution. P.S., I'm not a racist. This isn't to be confused with legal immigration.

Two, the TARP bill, I want it repealed and I want no further funding supplied to it. We told you no, but you did it anyway. I want the remaining unfunded 95% repealed. Freeze, repeal.

Three: Czars, I want the circumvention of our checks and balances stopped immediately. Fire the czars. No more czars. Government officials answer to the process, not to the president. Stop trampling on our Constitution and honor it.

Four, cap and trade. The debate on global warming is not over. There is more to say.

Five, universal healthcare. I will not be rushed into another expensive decision. Don't you dare try to pass this in the middle of the night and then go on break. Slow down!

Six, growing government control. I want states rights and sovereignty fully restored. I want less government in my life, not more. Shrink it down. Mind your own business. You have enough to take care of with your real obligations. Why don't you start there.

Seven, ACORN. I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in charge of our 2010 census. I want them investigated. I also do not want mandatory escrow fees contributed to them every time on every real estate deal that closes. Stop the funding to ACORN and its affiliates pending impartial audits and investigations. I do not trust them with taking the census over with our taxpayer money. I don't trust them with our taxpayer money. Face up to the allegations against them and get it resolved before taxpayers get any more involved with them. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, hello. Stop protecting your political buddies. You work for us, the people. Investigate.

Eight, redistribution of wealth. No, no, no. I work for my money. It is mine. I have always worked for people with more money than I have because they gave me jobs. That is the only redistribution of wealth that I will support. I never got a job from a poor person. Why do you want me to hate my employers? Why ‑‑ what do you have against shareholders making a profit?

Nine, charitable contributions. Although I never got a job from a poor person, I have helped many in need. Charity belongs in our local communities, where we know our needs best and can use our local talent and our local resources. Butt out, please. We want to do it ourselves.

Ten, corporate bailouts. Knock it off. Sink or swim like the rest of us. If there are hard times ahead, we'll be better off just getting into it and letting the strong survive. Quick and painful. Have you ever ripped off a Band‑Aid? We will pull together. Great things happen in America under great hardship. Give us the chance to innovate. We cannot disappoint you more than you have disappointed us.

Eleven, transparency and accountability. How about it? No, really, how about it? Let's have it. Let's say we give the buzzwords a rest and have some straight honest talk. Please try ‑‑ please stop manipulating and trying to appease me with clever wording. I am not the idiot you obviously take me for. Stop sneaking around and meeting in back rooms making deals with your friends. It will only be a prelude to your criminal investigation. Stop hiding things from me.

Twelve, unprecedented quick spending. Stop it now.

Take a breath. Listen to the people. Let's just slow down and get some input from some nonpoliticians on the subject. Stop making everything an emergency. Stop speed reading our bills into law. I am not an activist. I am not a community organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a violent person. I am a parent and a grandparent. I work. I'm busy. I'm busy. I am busy, and I am tired. I thought we elected competent people to take care of the business of government so that we could work, raise our families, pay our bills, have a little recreation, complain about taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the weekends and be responsible contributing members of society and teach our children to be the same all while living in the home of the free and land of the brave.

I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution. I believed in the checks and balances to keep from getting far off course. What happened? You are very far off course. Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of a speed reader to unintelligently ramble all through a bill that you signed into law without knowing what it contained? I do not. It is a mockery of the responsibility I have entrusted to you. It is a slap in the face. I am not laughing at your arrogance. Why is it that I feel as if you would not trust me to make a single decision about my own life and how I would live it but you should expect that I should trust you with the debt that you have laid on all of us and our children. We did not want the TARP bill. We said no. We would repeal it if we could. I am sure that we still cannot. There is such urgency and recklessness in all of the recent spending.

From my perspective, it seems that all of you have gone insane. I also know that I am far from alone in these feelings. Do you honestly feel that your current pursuits have merit to patriotic Americans? We want it to stop. We want to put the brakes on everything that is being rushed by us and forced upon us. We want our voice back. You have forced us to put our lives on hold to straighten out the mess that you are making. We will have to give up our vacations, our time spent with our children, any relaxation time we may have had and money we cannot afford to spend on you to bring our concerns to Washington. Our president often knows all the right buzzword is unsustainable. Well, no kidding. How many tens of thousands of dollars did the focus group cost to come up with that word? We don't want your overpriced words. Stop treating us like we're morons.

We want all of you to stop focusing on your reelection and do the job we want done, not the job you want done or the job your party wants done. You work for us and at this rate I guarantee you not for long because we are coming. We will be heard and we will be represented. You think we're so busy with our lives that we will never come for you? We are the formerly silent majority, all of us who quietly work , pay taxes, obey the law, vote, save money, keep our noses to the grindstone and we are now looking up at you. You have awakened us, the patriotic spirit so strong and so powerful that it had been sleeping too long. You have pushed us too far. Our numbers are great. They may surprise you. For every one of us who will be there, there will be hundreds more that could not come. Unlike you, we have their trust. We will represent them honestly, rest assured. They will be at the polls on voting day to usher you out of office. We have cancelled vacations. We will use our last few dollars saved. We will find the representation among us and a grassroots campaign will flourish. We didn't ask for this fight. But the gloves are coming off. We do not come in violence, but we are angry. You will represent us or you will be replaced with someone who will. There are candidates among us when hewill rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of our constitution.

Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don't care. Political parties are meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them. Because we will get you fired and they will not save you. If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up. Make your identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are. If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one. We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming. We the people are coming.

CALLER: Contreras.

GLENN: Contreras. When did you write this letter?

CALLER: The night before I e mailed it to you. I was trying to reach Patrick Beck which I have been able to do since then.

GLENN: Who's Patrick Beck?

CALLER: He's the gentleman that you had on the show who's also from Arizona that's organizing the march to Washington, D.C.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Well, I can put did you ever get in touch with him?

CALLER: I was able to, yes.

Glenn Beck's Common Sense
Now available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: Okay, good. It is an absolutely amazing letter and I read it yesterday on the air and I'm going to open the show on television tonight so all the Fox viewers will see it as well tonight.

CALLER: That's great.

GLENN: You were a Democrat?

CALLER: I was, all my adult life. I was a Democrat all my adult life, and during this last election Obama and Hillary just made me so angry, I could not stay registered a Democrat. But John McCain made me angry, too. And now I don't know what I am other than angry. I don't know what I am.

GLENN: Here's what you are. You are an American. That's great. You know what, I find myself in exactly the same position, Janet, that I'm angry because I actually care. And reading your letter, it sounds like you do, too. And I thought that we all just kind of had an understanding that we would vote for you and you would tell us what you were going to do and, you know, there were going to be some problems and we're not going to do some of the stuff, but you had the good of the country at heart.

CALLER: Exactly.

GLENN: And now you find out that the ones you voted for Democrats, I voted for Republicans, we both find out they don't actually mean a damn word they say.

CALLER: No. And it's extremely frustrating because now I have to put my life on hold and do the job that we hired them to do. If you had a store and you hired a manager and you just walked away and let the manager mind the store because you thought that you had trained the manager to run the store the way you wanted it run and you come back to find out the manager has just let everything go to pot and your store is just in shambles, whose fault is that? I mean, you walked away from the store. It makes me very angry. We hired them to do a job and they failed us miserably.

GLENN: Yeah, but you know what

CALLER: At the same time we've stood by. We were not minding the store.

GLENN: God bless you for saying that, Janet. This is the thing that I think a lot of people because there are so many groups of people and especially those in the media and in Washington that still want to make this about politics.

CALLER: Exactly.

GLENN: This is about betrayal quite honestly.

CALLER: Uh huh.

GLENN: And we are the ones that betrayed our founders. We're the ones that betrayed those who died on beaches.

CALLER: Right.

GLENN: We're the ones who said we got so lazy.


GLENN: They warned us. Our founders warned us over and over and over again, when you become complacent, when the government is no longer afraid of you, well, then you're in deep, deep trouble. We saw it coming. All through the Nineties we said, oh, well, you know what, character doesn't matter. When we said character doesn't matter, we gave them that's like going to the store manager and us saying, one of the other store people saying, "You know what, he's embezzling from you, I'm sure he's embezzling from you" and saying, "I'm not sure if that's true. Look, he's a little slippery on a few things, but I'm sure..." and the other guy's saying, looking at you, the manager, looking at you while you say to the other, "Hey, back off him, okay? He's a little slippery on a few things." As soon as you say that to somebody, you give them permission to be slippery on all things.

CALLER: Yeah, I agree.

GLENN: And that's what happened. That's what happened.

CALLER: Well, I don't want this. I don't want this fight, Glenn. I don't have the time or the energy or the financial resources for it, but that no longer matters. It no longer matters that I'm able or that I want this fight. I have to take it on. It's not a matter of choice anymore, which is why I wrote the letter.

GLENN: Janet, you have gosh, you just make my heart, you just make my heart so full because this is what I I don't remember the occasion but I remember I was on the air and somebody saying, you know, why are you talking about the financial stuff? You're just talking everybody down and you're talking the economy down and you're just trying to scare everybody. And I remember passionately with tears in my eyes saying, "I don't want to be this person. I don't want to say these things, but I have to." And to hear you say that, I know exactly what you mean and I'm hearing it more and more.

CALLER: No, I would rather mow my lawn and wash my car and play with my grandchildren.

GLENN: Who wouldn't.

CALLER: But I can't now. I cannot every minute of my spare time now has to be devoted to getting these guys out of office.

GLENN: Janet, how long did it take you to write that letter?

CALLER: Probably two hours. Because you go back and you tweak and you

GLENN: Have you ever written anything before?

CALLER: Yeah, a few things but I mean, not published things but, yes.

GLENN: May I, may I make a prediction. Your letter, in the next 72 hours, will be a letter that is circulated through a good portion of this country on the Internet. I have a feeling your letter may become a rallying cry.

CALLER: I hope so.

GLENN: I think it will.

CALLER: Because when I tried to e mail it to our representatives and our senators, most of my e mail was blocked, not in their district; they're not interested. But you know what? I don't care if I'm in their district. I'm coming for them, too.

GLENN: Janet, I know for a fact that the White House watches my program. I know that the halls of congress, I've talked to enough people in congress and the Senate that they watch, and those who are on the receiving end of our investigations or our opinions, they watch more than those who are not. Your letter is going to be heard today in Washington and we're putting a petition together with your letter in the free e mail newsletter today. So that goes to about a million people alone there, and I'm going to ask them to please pass it on to all of their friends and let's just watch what happens in the next, in the next week.

CALLER: That would be great. The other part of this is the invisible people who can and do represent my views need to come out of the shadows.

GLENN: To stand up.

CALLER: I don't know who they are. They're going to get washed away with the rest of them if they don't have the courage to stand up.

GLENN: Janet, I love you. If you missed her letter, tonight on Fox at 5:00.
