News Roundup

There are many great blog posts out there today, so it's time for a Talk Wisdom News Roundup.

Hot off the wires, we have Gateway Pundit revealing what many conservative Christians already knew, deep down in their hearts:

posted by Jim Hoft at The Gateway Pundit - 10 minutes ago
Of course they do… A few leftist Jewish democrats agree with Barack Obama’s plan to hand over half of Jerusalem, the Wailing Wall, The Temple Mount, Old Jerusalem, and the tomb of Jesus Christ to the Hamas...

One might ask, why would leftist Jewish democrats do such a thing?  It has to be because they are anti-Zionist; do not believe that the Bible is God's Word, and have been brain-dirtied to be stuck in the liberal leftist mindset that continues to drink Obama's poisonous Kool-Aid.  Gateway Pundit sums it up simply as this:   "Politics always trumps religious belief with these leftists."

One typical democrat sycophant had the usual tripe to spew (see at link).  But the first commenter came right back at 'em!!

Hey Ackerman is right!

Obama is an alien, illegitimate and untrustworthy.

I think he is from another planet.

He is illegitimate because America only knows he’s a Marxist who is destroying America.

And talk about untrustworthy! He’s trying to get all the Jews in Israel exterminated.

Hmmm, what other monster in history tried to annihilate the Jews?

Oh yeah, the leader of the National SOCIALIST Party in Germany.


A blog called A Time For Choosing has some really good posts about Sarah Palin.

Glenn Beck: Palin 2012 Just Got More Likely

I love Sarah's style. She tells it like it is and doesn't care who hates her and/or doesn't like her policies or what she has to say.

Recently, someone told me that he thinks she is a "polarizing figure" and doesn't think she should run for president. That truly disappointed me. But who could possibly be more polarizing that our current pResident in the White House? Trouble is, Obamafraud outrightly lied during his campaign!  We have the videotapes!   Unfortunately, many people (even Christians) were fooled by his untrustworthy rhetoric. We The People won't get fooled again, and no matter who the Republican nominee turns out to be, he or she will win handedly over Obama. The nation now knows how much of a fraudster, cheater, liar, socialist, and Islamo-fascist dictator Obama really is and except for a few leftists who still are falling for his dangerous demagoguery, the following he once owned and enjoyed has diminished quite substantially.

You don't need to take my word for it. Just view this video (HT: A Time For Choosing) to see how badly Obama's terrible policies have hurt our nation:

Sarah does not mince words when she finds the policies of Barack Hussein Obama dangerous and troubling:

Obama’s Strange Strategy: Borrow Foreign Money to Give to Foreign Countries
.by Sarah Palin on Friday, May 27, 2011 at 4:23pm.Should we be borrowing money from China to turn around and give it to the Muslim Brotherhood?

Given that we are running massive deficits and are drowning in more than $14 trillion in debt, and despite not knowing who will rule Egypt until its election this fall, this strange strategy may be the end result given President Obama’s announcement that he is committing $2 billion to Egypt’s “new government.” It’s part of a $20 billion foreign aid package laid out with the Group of 8 countries in Europe today.

Now, given that Egypt has a history of corruption when it comes to utilizing American aid, it is doubtful that the money will really help needy Egyptian people. Couple that with the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is organized to have a real shot at taking control of Egypt’s government, and one has to ask why we would send money (that we don’t have) into unknown Egyptian hands?

Throwing borrowed money around is not sound economic policy. And throwing borrowed money around the developing world is not sound foreign policy. Foreign assistance should go to American allies that need it and appreciate it, and for humanitarian purposes when it can truly make a difference.

Considering the Obama Administration’s continued strange strategies on the economy and foreign policy has us counting down the days to the next election. November 2012 can’t come soon enough.

- Sarah Palin

If Obama's strange decisions regarding the "Arab Spring" uprisings and throwing money at Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood does not disturb you, then you are either not paying attention or are an ideologue that would back Obama no matter what he does.

There are more good posts to read over at "A Time For Choosing," including a transcript of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Speech To Congress.

Even if you already heard the speech, please take a moment and go to above link to read it. THAT is how a true leader who loves his nation and thinks of America as a best friend speaks! It was such a breath of fresh air to read that transcript and view the video and hear Congress (most of them, anyway) CHEERING and CLAPPING about the words of Prime Minister Netanyahu!  It was especially gratifying to hear these two very important points:

1. Hamas must say the following words in order for the peace process to move forward: "We recognize Israel's right to exist."

2. Prime Minister Netanyahu rebuffed Obama's  ill-gotten plan to force Israel to go back to the 1967 lines.  Netanyahu's response?  IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!!

Because Hamas has the call for the destruction of Israel in its written charter, we know that they most likely would NEVER say those six words in point #1. Therefore, it is unlikely that the peace process would move forward with that terrorist organization in charge of the Palestinian territories.

Back to Sarah and the Republican candidates for president.

No matter who becomes the Republican nominee for president, the media of mass deception with do their best to ruin any Republican candidacy during the upcoming campaign. They are so in bed with Obama and pregnant with his awful policies, that we can expect them to never be objective during the 2012 race.  Luckily, the new media (blogs, facebook pages, Internet forums and chat rooms) have already alerted WE THE PEOPLE about the lamestream media schemes, and a majority of those who are wary and paying attention to all that is going on will not fall for their lies anymore!

I liked how author Sonny Palermo put it in his essay at American Thinker.

The Obama game plan for 2012 is revealed.

The Obama game plan for 2012 is revealed. It will not be to run on his record, because a speech listing the meritorious accomplishments of his first four years could be delivered by a mute, sans teleprompter. The goal will be to attack conservatives with cries of "racist" and "granny killers" in a campaign built upon subterfuge, slander, and misdirection, fueled by desperation and demagoguery. And the regime will be aided and abetted by a complicit, sycophantic media, Judas Goats posing as Bellwether Rams, bereft of journalistic integrity, derelict in duty and unashamedly open and unapologetic about it in these increasingly dangerous times.

Update!! One more late entry - "The Cure For Liberalism":

Missy8s commented:
Becoming a survivor of liberal indoctrination requires will and backbone, some have it and some never will…

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the liberals I cannot change, the courage to change the liberals I can and wisdom to know the difference.”

~Friends of John Q.

The 12 Steps To Recovering From Liberalism:

1. We admitted we were powerless over our envious and slothful ways and that our lives had become unsustainable through the coercive appropriation of the fruits of others labors.

2. We came to believe that a power greater than government could restore us to self determination and fiscal sanity.

3. We made the decision to turn our future and our lives over to the care of our own success and hard work.

4. We made a searching and moral inventory of ourselves.

5. We admitted to ourselves and our brothers that our salvation comes from the grace of God and our personal relationship with him.

6. We came to know that strength in spirit and character are not sustained by the gifts of government or collective reliance upon them.

7. We humbly asked God our creator to remove our shortcomings and to unshackle our brothers and sisters from slavery of the mind to the promises of the corrupt and powerful.

8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed through our complicity in wresting their liberty from them and became willing to make amends to them all through our works.

9. We made direct amends to such people as were enslaved to this progressive disease of interdependent mediocrity wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. We continued to take personal inventory our lives and when we were wrong promptly admitted it to ourselves before God.

11. We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and to share his word with others still searching in the darkness for the liberty and the power to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, we tried to carry this message to other recovering liberals and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

The first step to recovery from liberalism is acknowledging you have a problem and learning to conquer it.

That is TERRIFIC!! Pass it on!!

King of Books

Has dishonesty disproportionately risen in the minds, hearts, souls, and spirits of many Americans over the course of the last decade?  Or has it just seemed that way?  Perhaps it has something to do with the exposure that the Internet has given us about the Lamestream Media's extreme liberal bent and nonobjective reporting.  I can't even calculate how many visitors have come to this blog to read various posts over the past 2 years in order to find out what the media of mass deception is covering up about Obama.  Has it always been this way?  Or has dishonesty and lies increased exponentially since the campaign, election, and terrible governance of the puppet Obama, his evil puppeteers, and the clueless minions who blindly follow?

Note these verses that describe a "liar":

Jhn 8:44 "You are of [your] father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own [resources], for he is a liar and the father of it.

1Jo 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

1Jo 2:4 He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

1Jo 2:22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.

1Jo 5:10 He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.

Did you notice how many verses deal with the term "liar" being equated with the outright denial of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord having been sent by the Father?

The Bible mentions "liars" five times within it's pages:

Psa 116:11 I said in my haste, "All men [are] liars."

1Ti 1:8 But we know that the law [is] good if one uses it lawfully,

1Ti 1:9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for [the] lawless and insubordinate, for [the] ungodly and for sinners, for [the] unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

1Ti 1:10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,

1 Ti 1:11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.

Tts 1:12 One of them, a prophet of their own, said, "Cretans [are] always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons."


Rev 2:2 "I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars

Rev 2:3 "and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name's sake and have not become weary.


The book of Revelation verses above instruct us in how to deal with those who have been found to be liars. We are to "persevere and have patience, and labor for My name's sake" (Christ's) and not become weary.

Are you weary with all of the cheating, lying, injustice, harm, instability, treason, and traitorous acts of the current administration? I certainly am. More and more bloggers are writing that they can't wait for the 2012 election. It can't get here fast enough in order to get this evil administration out of office.

What about that Harold Camping character who passes himself off to be a preacher with "special knowledge" and claimed to have known about the exact date (purportedly, May 21, 2011) of the end of the world?

Those Christians who are very familiar with what the Bible has to say about this topic were not fooled by this lying, so-called "prophet." And now, some non-Christians think that because this particular idiot made such a mistake, it somehow shows how ignorant Christians may be. Well, it is more likely that the Bible-based Christians were not fooled because they take what the Scriptures say to heart:

Mat 24:23 "Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here [is] the Christ!' or 'There!' do not believe [it].

Mat 24:24 "For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

Mat 24:25 "See, I have told you beforehand.


We have been TOLD BEFOREHAND by Jesus Himself in Scripture just whom we should avoid. Knowing what is in the Bible (and what isn't) is INVALUABLE for our endeavor to recognize the truth!

Jesus Himself that some of the "great signs and wonders to deceive" might be so convincing, that if possible, it could fool "even the elect." This means that the elect will come to their biblically based sensible logic (a.k.a. discernment) in order to recognize the truth from the lies. God's Word tells us just Whom helps us out!

Jhn 16:12 "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear [them] now.

Jhn 16:13 "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own [authority], but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

Jesus was speaking about the Holy Spirit who would lead us and guide us unto all truth. We also have fellow Christians who can help us discern better than we could on our own. The key is to be sure that what is being shared agrees with what is in Scripture.

Relying on our own senses alone, without faith, ends in death; both physically and spiritually. The Word of God - which includes God's Living Word - Jesus Christ, God's written Word - the Bible, and God's sent Counselor - the Holy Spirit - all need faith and belief. Jesus told Thomas:

Jhn 20:29 Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed [are] those who have not seen and [yet] have believed."

The Apostle John recorded what Jesus said would be the eternal destination of those who do not repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ in order to be saved unto all eternity:

Rev 21:8 "But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

I enjoy getting Dr. David Jeremiah's "Turning Points Devotional" weeks before the next issue appears online. The May issue is still on the David website, but on June 1, 2011, be sure to visit the site to see next month's issue: "The Test of Time." I have already started reading it and it is awesome! And, with a gift of $100.00 or more, you can receive A Visual History of the English Bible plus a free copy of How We God the Bible pamphlet. I have already sent for both through the mail!

I plan to discuss more about the June devotional in future blog posts. For now, I will close with one quote that informs us of just how very important God's Word is in our lives:

"The Bible is worth all other books which have ever been printed," Said Patrick Henry. Other books will come and go, but only one endures through the ages and spans eternity."

That is why the Bible is the king of books!
Mat 24:35 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.

Mat 24:36 "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, [fn] but My Father only.

Netanyahu Rejects Obamas Stupid & Dangerous Plan

It is SO DIFFICULT for me to speak with anyone who works for the State Department and thinks that Obama's request for Israel to go back to the pre-1967 border is a good idea. THATS LUDICROUS!!!

Folks, it is a bit too early to go all in on any presidential candidate, but here's my favorite, for now.

Know what?  I was proud of my decision to vote for Tom McClintock for governor of California instead of RINO Arnold.  Schwartenegger's celebrity didn't mask his bad liberal politics and policies.  I'm even MORE glad that I never cast a vote for him after finding out about his infidelity to his wife and the heartbreak the scandal must be causing for his entire family.  What a dirt bag!!
Tom McClintock certainly was an underdog in that political race.  But upholding my morals and values and ethics when I voted for him in the Republican primary back then was more important to me than for the candidate to win.  Many people may not agree with me on this, but  it was important to me as a Christian first,  wife and mother second, and conservative third in my life.
If Sarah Palin decides to run, she will have my vote throughout the political election process.  I pray that she (or another Christian conservative like Herman Cain or Michele Bachmann) wins.  We need to have a leader who will take us in the right direction here in America - a direction that God would approve of - not the socialist, Islamo-fascist, "throw America and Israel under the bus" kind of disastrous, traitorous, and treasonous direction that the resident puppet in the White House and all of his Soros-led puppeteers are taking our beloved nation!

Obama Has Betrayed Israel

I plan to do a huge linkfest tomorrow on Obama's betrayal of Israel in his speech today. For now please see Beck: U.S. Policy Trouble For Israel

Tonight: Who needs Yasser Arafat when you have the President of the United States saying what he did today in his speech regarding Israel? Something happened today for the first time in history. Glenn believes the President has betrayed one of our strongest allies in Israel. It appears that the President’s policy is to see a two state solution. It appears he wants to divide Israel up, which basically will kill it.

It's About Allegiance

Question: What is the whole natural born citizenship controversy surrounding Obama really about? The answer: IT'S ABOUT ALLEGIANCE. Since  I have not been able to post this week, I wanted to link to one of the most important video interviews that I have heard in a long time.  Over at DrKatesView: "Allegiance" - you can hear an interview between the moderator and Dr. Herb Titus; who outlines what the REAL issue is concerning Obama's citizenship.

Why are so many people stunned and concerned about Obama's lack of fidelity when it comes to allegiance to the United States of America? Dr. Herb Titus tells us why:

The way he [Obama] has operated, we have seen starkly demonstrated why its so important to have a singular fidelity that can only come from a natural born citizen… Dr. Herb Titus

Couldn't have said it better!

I have listened to the entire interview, and Dr. Titus lays it on the line like no one else that I have previously listened to (except for Mario Apuzzo and his case against Obama)regarding the Natural Born Citizen clause in Article 2 Section 1 clause 5 of the United States Constitution!

Glenn on Israel, Islam, plus a Liberal Democrat Guests on Show

WOW!!! Glenn Beck's show tonight was truly awesome! He started out his show discussing his trip to Israel and further pointing out how Israel is "being set up" and why.

Summary at The Daily

Tonight: Glenn is back from Israel and has lots to say. There is an endgame afoot for man’s freedom and the Western way of life and the end will begin in Israel. Why is Glenn focusing on the Middle East and Israel? Israel is the beginning of what could be the end of man’s freedom…we must learn from history. Find out more tonight.

He also points out that there is a march against capitalism, man's freedom, and the Western way of life in this world.  America and Israel, in particular, are being targeted.

Unfortunately, some Americans aren't even paying any attention to this important matter. Who knows why? Perhaps it is because they are too busy worrying about their own individual lives to care? Or maybe they are just too darn busy and exhausted at the end of the day to watch and/or listen to the show? I don't know the reason(s) why many more lovers of our great nation - true American Patriots - aren't extremely appalled by what is going on via our current gangster government (did you hear about that awful rapper "Common" performing at the White House? You know - the guy that glorifies cop killers in his lyrics? DISGUSTING. Barack and Michelle should be totally ashamed of themselves for giving this creep a platform at the People's House!!! But that is a story for another blog post), and it's radical socialist/communist/Islamo-fascist ideology being spread here and around the world; then you are allowing treason to go on right under our noses!

But don't take my word for it. Go to the link above and watch the entire Glenn Beck Program for today, Wednesday, May 11, 2012 and see with your own eyes Glenn interviewing a liberal democrat who believes in social justice and supports teachers unions (she and Glenn do not have that in common, of course) who GETS IT and is exposing an awful radical curriculum that is being taught to kids in Arizona.

Be sure to watch the entire show because the first part is about Israel and the second part includes an interview between liberal democrat Loretta Hunnicutt and Glenn discussing the horrors of what is being taught to children in public schools that even Hunnicutt (a liberal democrat!!) deems as treasonous to America!

The Mansion of Heaven

When someone we love passes on, we grieve for their absence from this earth. However, Jesus came to fulfill what couldn't be done by anyone else. Because of his sacrificial death on the cross for our sins, we have a bridge from sinful man back to Holy God.

Jesus told us in God's Word, the Bible:

Jhn 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

He also told us:

Jhn 14:6 Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

As believers in Jesus Christ, we can have the assurance of eternal life through God's provision of mercy and grace via the cross at Calvary. Christ's resurrection to life proves that He is who He said he is, the Son of God, Lord and Savior of mankind.

~ Christine


The Mansion of Heaven

This world, however beautiful,
was never meant to be
The place that we would call our home
for all eternity.

And though we would not choose to leave,
a loving God knows best,
And in His time,
He lifts us to a place of peace and rest.
For He has built a mansion
where His children will abide,
Free from pain and sorrow,
forever at His side.

He said He'd never leave us
to face our trials alone,
And though sometimes we fail Him,
He never fails His own.

And even when our choices
are less than He would ask,
He knows when human courage
is unequal to the task.

We cannot judge what happens,
though tears and questions start--
We only see what's visible--
God sees into the heart...

And though there may be many things
that we cannot explain,
We can be sure it breaks His heart
to see His children's pain.

In loving arms,
He bears us to a quiet place apart
Were He mends the wounded spirit
and heals the broken heart.

And though these ones we love so much
And passed into a better world
of majesty and light,
Someday we'll be together
in our Father's home above,
Where we'll thank Him for His mercy
and praise Him for His love.

A Mother's Day Message

Learning To Trust

May 8, 2011 — by Julie Ackerman Link
When I stuck my camera into the bush to take a picture of the baby robins, they opened their mouths without opening their eyes. They were so used to having mama robin feed them whenever the branches moved that they didn’t even look to see who (or what) was causing the disturbance.

That is the kind of trust that loving mothers instill in their children. That is the kind of mom I am blessed to have. Growing up, I could eat whatever food she put on the table without fear that it would harm me. Although she made me eat things I didn’t like, I knew she did so because they were good for me. If she cared only about what was easy for her, she would have let me eat junk food. No matter what Mom told me to do, or not to do, I knew she had my best interest in mind. She wasn’t trying to keep me from having fun; she was trying to protect me from being hurt.

That is the kind of relationship we have with God, who compared Himself to a mother: “As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you” (Isa. 66:13). As His children, we have no reason to fear what happens to us nor to envy what happens to others: “Do not . . . be envious of the workers of iniquity” (Ps. 37:1). When we trust His goodness, we are fed by His faithfulness.

Lord, we’re thankful for this example of motherhood.
But even more, we’re grateful for Your faithful
“mothering” of us displayed in Your compassion
day by day. Help us to find rest in You. Amen.

God’s care surrounds us.

Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. —Psalm 37:3

The White House Public Relations Disaster

This morning, I received an essay via email from an author named Wes Pruden. He has written an awesome article entitled The insult to the American soldier.

When I reached his blog Pruden & Politics, I found out that you need to register in order to read the articles there.

Anyway, since I received this particular article via email and the email gave permission to share it with others, I decided to post the article in it's entirety here at Talk Wisdom.

The insult to the American soldier

By Wesley Pruden

“Can’t anybody here play this game?”

The president, revealing himself to be Barack Obungle, has done what nobody else could have done, not even the spectacularly hapless original New York Mets, who drove Casey Stengel to his famous cry of terminal frustration.

The White House converted a picture-perfect military operation into a public-relations disaster that will be cited as what not to do and how not to do it in flackery textbooks for a hundred years. Days after the raid on Osama bin Laden’s “mansion” they still can’t get the “fact pattern,” in the language of the White House, even close to straight.

Even that ubiquitous photograph of the president, the secretary of state and assorted minions bravely watching the operation in “real time” looks now to have been a “photo-op” taken after the fact. This is the scene that the goofy John Brennan, the president’s anti-terrorism chief, described as one of unbearable tension endured heroically by the magnificent minions. Hillary seemed to be clutching her throat, choking back terror as she watched the raid unfold, but now Leon Panetta, the chief of the CIA, reveals that 24 minutes of the 40-minute video were “blacked out” by some kind of electronic malfunction. Maybe she was only wishing she had ordered pepperoni with extra cheese when the president sent out for pizza.

Can anyone imagine FDR and his generals canceling D-Day because an invasion might infuriate the Germans?

What a roller coaster ride: Osama bin Laden engaged the Seals in a firefight. Well, no, actually, it turns out he didn’t. But he did seize a woman, probably one of his wives, to use as a human shield. Uh, well, actually he didn’t do that, either. But he was armed, we know that for sure. Ummm, no, not really. OK, but we’re positive that woman was killed. Uh, not exactly. But we definitely, positively, absolutely know that Osama is dead. We have the photographs to prove it and the public can see them. Er, no, not quite. The president has them but you can’t see them. Everybody will just have to take his word for it.

That won’t happen, either. There was a time when everybody took a president’s word for everything. But nobody trusts the government on anything any more. Lies have withered public patience. Too bad, Mr. President, but you’ll have to show us the death certificate. No reasonable man can doubt that Osama is dead, dead, dead, but we’re talking now about the Middle East.

You might think the president would have rehearsed his minions in a story, even if concocted, so everybody would tell it like it is. The White House finally shut up with the explanation that “the fact pattern” is still being evaluated. It’s only now dawning on the president that he has done everything possible to guarantee an enduring worldwide harangue over whether Osama is in fact dead, how he was killed, whether dumping the body in the sea was wise, whether how he died violated the decencies of international custom, and whether burial traditions of Shariah law were followed before Osama became the ultimate fish dinner.

Alan Dershowitz, the Harvard law professor and one of the most distinguished criminal lawyers in the land, says “burying his body at sea constituted the willful destruction of evidence.” The doubts that will be contrived by Muslim red-hots would have been prevented if Osama’s body had been subjected to the usual forensic testing, extensive examination of entrance and exit wounds, and paraffin testing for gunpowder residue. “Dead bodies,” he writes in an essay in the Wall Street Journal, “often talk more loudly, clearly and unambiguously than live witnesses.” He notes that when a Muslim or a Jew is murdered in the United States “religious considerations do not trump civil circumstances.”

But the real offense of the Washington wimpery is pushing a weakling’s canard against the military, asserting that the photograph can’t be shown because it would make Muslim terrorists cross at us. But surely the Army and the Navy can take care of themselves; soldiers, sailors and Marines aren’t Campfire Girls. Can anyone imagine FDR and his generals canceling D-Day because an invasion might infuriate the Germans? Or that a Muslim terrorist will now salute an American soldier in Afghanistan and put down his rifle and grenade launcher, telling him “we really appreciate your president’s keeping that ugly photograph to himself.”

Americans come from Mars, so the witticism goes, and Europeans are from Venus. But that doesn’t include this president and his bungling minions. They’re weepy refugees from Pluto.

I ask once again.  Is it any wonder why the American public is very busy searching for the truth on the Internet about what actually happened that day?  Three cheers for the Navy SEALS who did a magnificent job! Can't say the same about how the White House handled the aftermath.

Obama Snubs 9/11/01 Family Member

One more brief post tonight. I was horrified when I heard the interview between Martha McCallum (subbing for Megyn Kelly's show) on Fox News Channel and Debra Burlingame, who met with Obama after his Ground Zero appearance today.

Atlas Shrugs summed it up well:

Debra Burlingame, the sister of Charles "Chic" Burlingame (pilot of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon) met with President Obama today, along with other families who were victims of 9/11. Burlingame said she confronted Obama about Attorney General Eric Holder prosecuting the men who interrogated KSM, which may have produced intelligence leading us to bin Laden.

Burlingame describes the encounter with Obama: "As a former attorney I know you can't tell the Attorney General what to do, he said, 'No, I can't.' But I said 'we -- that shouldn't stop you from giving your opinion. We wouldn't be here today if they hadn't done their jobs. Can't you at least give them your opinion.' And he said 'no I won't,' and he turned around and walked away."

How's that for compassion??  Not!


Is This Blatant Technorati Bias or What??

I just happened to check where Talk Wisdom's "authority" was in the ranking system over at Technorati (last I checked, it was somewhere around 400 or higher) and look what I found!

I don't think that I have EVER seen ANY blog move 298 negative places in a few days before!  What gives?  I guess they didn't like what I was blogging about?  It can't be due to visitors reaching this blog.  I had one of the highest amounts of visitors ever today.

Today's stats as of 5/5/11 at 10:16 p.m. PT:

So, I decided to see where Atlas Shrugs is ranked since I originally linked to Pam Geller's blog when the "White House Insider" story broke.

Found this interesting! Look at the huge difference in ranking for Pam's blog when she wrote about the "son of Hamas" being a fraud! Guess they didn't like that over at Technorati so dropped her rankings when she posted that essay!

    Perhaps not.  Obvious bias is typical of ranking sites like Technorati with an ideology that doesn't agree with certain blogs and their posts!  I have seen their bias before!  But this had to be the most blatant kind that I have ever seen from them!

    Obama Wasn’t Told Until the Mission Was Under Way?

    As the story about what really led up to the raid on UBL's compound in Pakistan (and who was ultimately in charge of the final decision to attack when the SEALS did) keeps changing and the previous decisions (e.g. to release the photos of bin Laden, then not to release them) made are changed, is it any wonder that the American people have doubts about this important event?

    There are the naysayers who poo-poo the White House Insider story that I included in my post yesterday. However, many blogs are posting it and very interesting comments have helped to show that the scenario described by the Insider sounds more plausible than what the White House and media of mass deception are putting out.

    I found a very reputable blog, the PJ Tattler at Pajamas Media, that posted the same story that I did yesterday. Here is a link:

    PJ Tattler - Pajamas Media: Leon Panetta, not Obama, issued order to kill bin Laden?

    As you can see, the author of the blog posed the Insider article in the form of a question within the title of the post. That was probably wise since we cannot know for sure whether or not what was written is the absolute truth.

    I am pointing readers here to that blog so that you can see the back and forth banter between the commentators in the comment section. It's quite interesting, to say the least. You will also get more logical deductions from the readers there - especially when they are discussing the fact that Obama went golfing on such a momentous day when this extremely important event was about to happen. It does point to the question as to whether or not Obama knew exactly when the raid was going to happen. It helps explain why Leon Panetta could make the final decision - because Obama gave him the authority to do so when he saw it as feasible.

    I just could not imagine former President George W. Bush going golfing on the day that the decision was made to get bin Laden. It would NEVER HAPPEN! He would not do something so trivial just before the final order was given to raid a compound in Pakistan in order to get bin Laden, dead or alive. Can you imagine Bush doing such a thing? I can't.

    I really wish that there weren't any questions swirling around the bin Laden raid and killing. It makes us look bad to the rest of the world. But when there is a suspected cover-up of true events taking place, we cannot turn a blind eye. At least that is the way that I see it.

    I celebrate the fact that Osama bin Laden is dead. I commend all who were involved in carrying out this dangerous mission - especially the brave Navy SEALS who put their own lives in jeopardy to get bin Laden. Justice was finally done for the thousands of people who lost loved ones on 9/11/01. It won't bring their loved ones back or even change their grief over their loss, but perhaps it will help them have some semblance of peace knowing that this mass murderer, once and for all, can never give an order to murder ever again.

    There are dozens of comments that you need to read at the link above.

    One that makes me tend to believe the Insider story was this one:

    48. Roger
    “Wrong at the White House…” The old adage goes that “if you lie, you have to lie 1000 times to cover it up” and that would certainly fit the song and dance(s) coming from the WH and Press Sec.

    After reading the article I would have to say that “everything lines up” and fits to a tee the persona of a ‘weak’ and ‘manipulated’ puppet. Certainly the batting average of the reporter is pretty good and the specifics, right down to the ‘papers’ to read (from) not being present going in BUT being present coming out (small details but seemingly very telling)…
    And yes, the ‘body language’, the guy sitting in the corner in the pic with his gold shirt on and a rather confused look, Oh, yeah, he is the President. He looks more like someone who should be serving coffee – meek, no real fact based opinions… flows with the wind (or Soros)…
    I ‘think’ I believe the article… and we may never know for sure but when “outside” facts (times and people) line up with the suggested report then it certainly adds credibility.

    We have been lied to so many times by this gangster government administration, it is hard for me to believe that they can actually tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth anymore.

    I could post and comment about many more comments at that link, but you can go over and read them for yourself.

    Here are the last three (as of 5/5/11 at 7:41 a.m. PT):

    60. Count de Money
    Here’s another piece of the official narrative that doesn’t pass the smell test but fits in nicely with the Insider’s account.

    It is 233 miles straight line distance from Bagram AFB to the Abbottabad compound. We know that one of the helicopters used was a Chinook, probably a MH-47. The cruise speed of a Chinook is about 150 MPH and the service ceiling is about 10,000 ft. However, helicopters probably couldn’t fly in a straight line because of mountains higher than the service ceiling. Let’s assume it took about 2 hours to get to the target.

    The raid was said to occur at 3:30 PM EDT. That means the copters had to leave Bagram at about 1:30 PM. At that time however, Obama was on the golf course at Andrews AFB and didn’t get back to the White House until 2:04 PM. So at the time the most important military mission of Obama’s tenure is taking off, he’s putting on the ninth hole? WTF?

    This does fit into Insiders account that Obama wasn’t told until the mission was under way.

    May 4, 2011 - 9:17 pm Link to this Comment | Reply Count de Money
    Source for the golf timeline:

    “The president left the White House to play golf at 9:42 am, arriving at the Andrews Air Force Base course about 25 minutes later, according to the press pool report. He then ended his game after nine holes at 1:39 pm and made it back to the White House at 2:04 pm, about two hours before the attack on Bin Laden appears to have occurred.”

    Seriously, is there not even one DC reporter interested in the fact that O might have been on a golf course when the birds were in the air and minutes from the actual assault?

    No clarification on the May 1st timeline whatsoever?

    God help us.

    White House Insider: Obama Hesitated – Panetta Issued Order to Kill Osama Bin Laden [Update]

    Pamela Geller has the inside scoop about what REALLY transpired during the decision process of whether or not to kill bin Laden!

    Skulking Towards bin Laden: Obama Overridden by Military and Intel Officials in Takeout of OBL?


    As Obama continues to politicize and mine the takedown of Osama Bin Laden and the outrageous "Islamic burial" that followed, new details emerge of his reluctance and refusal to sign off on the mission. It is the height of hypocrisy and crass opportunism to draw out the release of the death photos so as to prolong the news cycle on the story, and to neglect the tornado-ravaged parts of the country -- instead, Obama campaigns at Ground Zero on Thursday for an "O-victory lap," while it appears that in fact Obama had to be dragged kicking and screaming to the OBL operation.
    The story that follows is deeply disturbing, but hardly surprising. When news broke that Obama rejected bombing the complex last month, one had to wonder why. It was reported that Obama feared collateral damage, despite being assured that the walls of the complex were high enough so that no civilians would be killed. Instead, he risked losing Americans in a mano-a-mano raid.
    A reluctant American president who was ultimately overridden by senior military and intelligence officials to finally take out terrorist Osama Bin Laden… Ulstermann (hat tip CO)
    Note:  This communication came from our long time D.C. Insider and details previous and ongoing conflicts surrounding the decision to assassinate terrorist Osama Bin Laden.  This has been reproduced here as originally communicated to us.
    Please get this out ASAP.  Want specific people to know we know.
     RE Osama Bin Laden.  Significant push to take him out months ago.  Senior WH staff resisted.  This was cause of much strain between HC and Obama/Jarrett.  HC and LP were in constant communication over matter – both attempted to convince administration to act.  Administration feared failure and resulting negative impact on president.  Intel disgusted over politics over national security.  Staff resigned/left.  Check timeline to corroborate.
    Now Intel already leaking to media facts surrounding how info obtained. Namely from enhanced interrogation efforts via GITMO prisoners.  Obama administration placed in corner on this.  Some media aware of danger to president RE this and attempting protection.  Others looking for further investigation.  We are pushing for them to follow through and already meeting with some access.  Point of determination made FOR Obama not BY Obama.  Will clarify as details become more clear.  Very clear divide between Military and WH.  Jarrett marginalized 100% on decision to take out OBL.  She played no part.  BD worked with LP and HC to form coalition to force CoC to engage.
    IMPORTANT SPECIFIC:  When 48 hour go order issued, CoC was told, not requested.  Administration scrambled to abort.  That order was overruled.  This order did not originate from CoC.  Repeat – this order did not originate from CoC.  He complied, but did not originate.
    Independent military contacts have confirmed.  Stories corroborate one another.  This is legit.
    The killing of Osama Bin Laden was in fact a Coup within Obama WH.
    Speaking with additional contacts RE info.
    Stay safe.
    HC = Hillary Clinton
    BD = Bill Daley
    LP = Leon Panetta
    CoC = Chain of Command/Commander in Chief

    Read the entire thing!

    Now when I look at the photo of everyone watching the mission, I see that Obama DOES look angry! He is also wearing his typical Sunday best - a golf shirt. Seems plausible that he WAS pulled off the golf course to be briefed rather than being "in the know" about the entire operation. No wonder it took him several hours to come out and make that created-for-him teleprompter speech!

    Copy of page 4:

    White House Insider: Obama Hesitated – Panetta Issued Order to Kill Osama Bin Laden
    by Ulsterman in Issues, May 3, 2011

    "What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him –and only him, involving a covert on the ground attack against the compound."

    At the conclusion of the mission, after it had been repeatedly confirmed a success, President Obama was once again briefed behind closed doors. The only ones who went in that room besides the president were Bill Daley. John Brennan, and a third individual whose identity remains unknown to me. When leaving this briefing, the president came out of it “…much more confident. Much more certain of himself.” He was also carrying papers in his hand that quite possibly was the address to the nation given later that evening on the Bin Laden mission. The president did not have those papers with him prior to that briefing. The president then returned to the war room, where by this time, Leon Panetta had personally arrived and was receiving congratulations from all who were present.

    In my initial communication to you of these events I described what unfolded as a temporary Coup initiated by high ranking intelligence and military officials. I stand by that term. These figures worked around the uncertainty of President Obama and the repeated resistance of Valerie Jarrett. If they had not been willing to do so, I am certain Osama Bin Laden would still be alive today. There will be no punishment to those who acted outside the authority of the president’s office. The president cannot afford to admit such a fact. What will be most interesting from here is to now see what becomes of Valerie Jarrett. One source indicated she is threatening resignation. I find that unlikely given my strong belief she needs the protection afforded her by the Oval Office and its immense powers to delay and eventually terminate investigations back in Chicago, but we shall see

    Update from Atlas Shrugs 5/4/11:

    Atlas Shrugs: 9 Months, 16 hours ...... Obama's Reluctance, Osama Poised to Flee


    More details from the Daily Mail on Obama's reluctance to pull the trigger on OBL. My first posting on this subject had heads exploding across the blogosphere. It definitely hit a chord. What is it that they say? If you are getting a lot of flak, you know you have hit the target.
    Obama took SIXTEEN HOURS to make up his mind about Bin Laden mission Daily Mail
    Barack Obama kept military commanders hanging by declaring he would 'sleep on it' before taking 16 hours to give the go-ahead to raid Bin Laden's compound.
    Hit squads of specialist Navy Seals - who were not even told who they were preparing to capture - had practised the mission at two reconstructions of the terror chiefs sprawling compound.
    The mission looked set to be given the all clear last Thursday when analysts confirmed beyond doubt that Bin Laden was in busy town of Abbottabad in northern Pakistan. Read more: here
    It is disturbing that the safe-house was discovered last August and that we risked losing OBL over the course of the past nine months. The courier's name who led to Bin Laden through Bush's CIA interrogations was leaked in the latest WIKILEAKS dump. So it was only a matter of time.
    "Osama bin Laden had 500 Euros in cash and two telephone numbers sewn into his clothing when he was killed, CBS News has confirmed." It was a miracle we got there in time.
    But OBL appeared not to be worried. OBL was at the compound without armed guards or any sort of organized unit of protection. OBL was so confident, so safe, so assured. He lived there for some time (as opposed to moving from cave to cave under Bush). Clearly he was not worried under an Obama administration, and it's a miracle he was still there.
    The media won't vet this story. So once again the blogs will go about getting to the bottom of things. The following update makes sense of what we know about Obama's reluctance to fight jihad. He seemed more concerned with getting Osama's Islamic burial right and the "Muslims sensitivities" that might be inflamed by the release of the OBL's death photos. Striking when Obama has insisted OBL was "not a Muslim leader."


    Not only that, but now Gateway Pundit reports:

    White House: We Won't Release bin Laden Photo.

    This White House doesn't know WHAT IT'S DOING!!!! The incompetence is AMAZING!!!

    Destruction, Control, and Death OR Creation, Submission and Life?

    Which of these do you choose? Destruction, Control, and Death OR Creation, Submission and Life? When you really think about it, life on this earth leads to one choice over another. We can choose destruction, or we can choose creation. We can choose control or we can choose to submit to Someone greater than ourselves.  We can choose death or we can choose life. It all leads to a decision.  It all depends on  in Whom one trusts his/her life during one's short, fleeting lifetime on this earth.

    I started to think of these contrasts after watching a portion of Glenn Beck's show on T.V. today. Even though I don't agree with everything that Glenn Beck does, says, writes, or theorizes about; I must admit that I am going to miss his T.V. show when he leaves Fox News. He doesn't talk down to his audience. He makes us all think deeply. Often, what he comes up with is quite interesting.  Sometimes, profound.

    Glenn's guest today was Michael Scheuer, and their brief conversation was really great and quite educational. Scheuer told the truth. During a discussion about the killing of bin Laden and the sensitivities being bantered about surrounding his death, Scheuer said that the last three presidents have all stated many times that "we are not at war with Islam." However, Scheuer countered that idea with the truth, "Islam is at war with us." That is the truth that so many progressives/liberals just cannot admit. Mr. Scheuer's interview appears in the second segment at "The Daily Beck"  link below. I encourage you to hear the rest of what he had to say.

    I also appreciated Glenn's "thinking out loud" segment where he made a circle and fence around our idea of America (which, unfortunately, has been replaced by our "stuff"), and then listed Marxists, Statists, Globalists, and Islamic Sharia law jihadists who want to change what America was, is, and will be in the future. He said:

    "We have to stop protecting our stuff. We need a competing idea against all of the above ideologies. Where is the competing idea? They all want to control. We must replace our "stuff" with an idea."

    See the second segment over at The Daily Beck for more detail.

    Glenn continued,
    "All of the outside influences are about destruction and control. That is not what He (God) is about. He (God) is about Creation."

    Now, I'm not sure what Glenn will say during tomorrow's show, but I thought that what he pointed out was an in-plain-sight revelation that We The People need to continually realize and utilize as we go through our time on this earth. We will always be battling against "powers and principalities" that are unseen in this world, but we certainly do feel the effects of such wickedness:
    Eph 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual [hosts] of wickedness in the heavenly [places].

    Eph 6:13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

    Notice that we are to stand in order to withstand the evil of the day. How do we do that? I know of no other way than by standing with the truth - Jesus Christ. He is the way, the truth and the life!

    With God's Word as our guide, we can show the world what is most important in this life. The battle between good vs. evil, and creation vs. destruction will go on until Christ returns for His Own. This means that in this world Christian believers can expect to be dismissed, rejected, reviled, ignored, persecuted or even killed. However, the last command of Jesus Christ to all of his followers after his Resurrection from the dead (and just before his Ascension back to the Father in heaven) was The Great Commission. He told them (and us) to go out into all the world and tell all peoples of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

    Mat 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

    Mat 28:20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, [even] to the end of the age." Amen.

    THAT is what matters most folks!

    Our time on this earth is fleeting, but eternity lasts forever. Where one spends eternity depends, ultimately, in how one answers Jesus' question, "Who do you say that I am?"

    Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

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

    Eph 6:16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

    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, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints--

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

    Eph 6:20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

    Big News! Osama bin Laden is Dead! [Update 5]

    I was driving home from a quick run to the grocery store when I first heard on Geraldo's show that Bin Laden is dead! The first blog on my blogroll to announce this was Atlas Shrugs.

    Praise be to God that our brave military continued to pursue the illusive Al Qaeda murderer and mastermind and was finally successful!!!

    HT: Atlas Shrugs


    P.S. During Obama's comments tonight, he stated that the events that killed Osama bin Laden happened "today" but the reports say it happened a week ago!! Hmmmm....a teleprompter error? Or was Obama trying to take credit for an event that happened without his influence?


    Update 1

    I found a link via WorldNetDaily of photos of the compound after the killings. Warning! Many are bloody and gruesome.

    ABC: Photos inside Osama bin Laden kill zone

    Update 2

    There is also a video

    The people are speaking Arabic so I don't know what they were saying.

    Also see Osama Bin Laden Killed Near Islamabad.

    Hat tip ABC News.


    Update 3

    I thought that it was only fair to include some links to what skeptics have written about this news:

    Veterans Today: Obama Announces bin Laden Still Dead

    [Take special note of what the late Benazir Bhutto said about bin Laden being murdered years ago in a video at above link.]

    Stevex09: Osama Bin Laden dead … but the body is conveniently disposed of … in the sea!

    Drkatesview: Chess Moves by the CIA


    Update #4 - 5/3/11

    I think that the photos of Osama bin Laden's body need to be released. Many Americans need to see if the terrorist is really dead.

    News Yahoo: Not everyone believes bin Laden really is dead

    Even some Pakistani youths are mocking the U.S. over it!

    'Osama is alive!' mock Pakistanis outside compound

    Some Pakistanis think "it was faked."

    News Yahoo: Bin Laden's luxury hideout raises questions.

    And please note that this is NOT coming from a right-wing blog! Quote from end of article:

    Many Pakistanis doubted the U.S. account of the raid, with some refusing to believe that bin Laden was dead.

    "It is not possible. Like other incidents, I think this is faked," said Mohammad Bashir, a 45-year-old cab driver in Abbottabad. "It seems that in the coming days, suddenly Osama will come out with a statement."


    Associated Press writers Zarar Khan in Abbottabad, Munir Ahmed and Chris Brummitt in Islamabad and Rasool Dawar in Peshawar contributed to this report.


    Update # 5

    Just as I published my last update, I found out via Gateway Pundit:

    White House to release bin Laden death photo.
