O'Reilly's "Writings" Are More Likely to be Grieving the Holy Spirit of God!

The moment that I first heard that Fox News analyst Bill O'Reilly was writing a book that he decided to entitle,  "Killing Jesus," I KNEW that what he would write would likely go against practically all that is sacred to born-again, Bible believing Christians.

O'Reilly claims to be Catholic, but his stances on many issues go against either the Catholic faith or Christian truth.  For example.  He blindly claims that homosexuality isn't such a big deal; yet, he has seen the huge amount of damage that was done in the Catholic church priest pederasty scandal.

I was waiting for the first review and/or commentary about the book to come out.  Today, I noticed a post over at Now The End Begins: Bill O’Reilly Wants To Destroy Your Faith In Jesus And The Bible. Just based on what is shared there, I would have to agree with the writer at that blog.


“But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time…” Jude 1
Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly does not believe that the bible is true or trustworthy, and in his new book “Killing Jesus”, he explains why. O’Reilly also says that, after casting doubt on the entire New Testament and mocking the words of Jesus, that the “Holy Spirit inspired him to write it”.

Imagine that.

Though he used the New Testament’s four Gospels as source material, he left out parts he doesn’t believe happened as written. For instance, Jesus didn’t say, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do” from the cross, the Catholic O’Reilly maintains. It wouldn’t have been physically possible, he said.

“You die on a cross from being suffocated,” he said. “You can hardly breathe. We believe Jesus said that, but we don’t believe he said it on the cross because nobody could have heard it.”

People have a right to take the Bible literally, he said, but in the case of “Killing Jesus,” he was trying to be historically accurate. He never says in the book that Jesus was the Son of God because his book is not intended to be religious.

“So is this the Gospel according to Bill?” asked “60 Minutes” correspondent Norah O’Donnell.
“This is best available evidence according to Bill,” O’Reilly responded.
The most important thing he learned while writing the book was that Jesus of Nazareth became the most famous human being who ever lived, yet he had no infrastructure. He had no government, no public relations expert, no money and no structure, O’Reilly said.

“It’s never been done.”


While the book isn’t religious, O’Reilly is. He says he was inspired to write “Killing Jesus” by the Holy Spirit. He says he just woke up in the middle of the night and thought, “Killing Jesus.” 
Asked by O’Donnell why the Holy Spirit would mark him as “the chosen one,” O’Reilly denied any such title. Instead, he said, he is “just one of many who have been given the gift. I can write and I can bloviate on TV.”

The Holy Spirit of God does NOT tell people things that are in direct or even indirect conflict with what is written in God's Word!  I don't know just whom or what was "inspiring" O'Reilly to write such a book; but from what he has said in the interview and through the posting at the blog link, it appears to me that O'Reilly's "writings" are more likely to be grieving the Holy Spirit of God!

The father of lies whom Jesus warned us about is wreaking more and more havoc in this chaotic world; as well as confusion and disorder within the souls of men for the distinct purpose of ruining them. 

“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.

Satan particularly likes to use influential men [like O'Reilly] who are powerful, visible, and wealthy in order to make others succumb to his goal to do evil and destroy men's souls.

Jesus told us:

“For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?

O'Reilly has proven himself to be an arrogant fool.  Why?  Because he has shown to believe the lies from the father of lies and then creates a book in order to make money off of the lies.  Such a thing is truly disgusting, belligerent, and disgracefully heretical.    But like any other false teacher, his deeds will be exposed.   The true believers who know Jesus Christ, follow His Word through Bible reading and study will not be fooled or silent.   We just have more work to do in order help those who are caught up in the confusion.

For the record, here is what Bible-believing Christians profess.  How do I know this?  Because of the truth provided in the Scriptures listed under each section of commentary.

What We Believe...

*  About God:
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed in three persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God.
Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 3:22; Psalms 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
*About Humankind:
We are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character.  We are the supreme object of God's creation.  Although humankind has tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God, called "sin."  This attitude separates us from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalms 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2
*About Eternity:
We all were created to exist forever.  We will either exist eternally in union with God through forgiveness and salvation or separated from God by sin.  Heaven is the place of eternal union and eternal life with God.  The eternal separation from God is called Hell.
John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; (Hell)
Matthew 25:41; Revelation 21:27 (Heaven)
* About Jesus Christ:
Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross.  He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death.  He ascended to Heavens glory and will return again, to earth, to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; John 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Romans 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14,15; Titus 2:13
*About Salvation:
Salvation is a gift from God to mankind.  We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin's penalty.  Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
*About The Holy Spirit:
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son of God.  He is present in the world to make mankind aware of our need for Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual gifts, and guidance in doing what is right.  The Christian's responsibility is to seek and to live under His will daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; John 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:1
*About Spiritual Gifts:
The gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to each believer in Jesus Christ, allowing for greater intimacy with God and power for accomplishing His work in our world today.  We believe that God, the giver of gifts, gives severally as he wills, and with emphasis on growing maturity in Jesus Christ.  These gifts are revealed and then can be used for His purposes and powerfully influence and affect our world for Christ.
1Corinthians 12:4-7, 11, 17, 29, 30
*About The Bible:
The Bible is God's Word to all mankind.  It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.  Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalms 12:6; 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5

Ted Cruz’s Real Goal is to Make D.C. Listen.


BiasedGirl @BiasedGirl

Ted Cruz stayed awake for at least 21 hours to debate Obamacare. Obama couldn't even stay awake to find out what happened in

Dear Readers,

Near the end of Cruz's 21 hour filibuster-like speech, it was certainly amusing to see the irritation on Harry Reid's face as the heroic U.S. Senator from Texas had granted Reid the opportunity to ask a question.  Of course, Senator Cruz was careful to say that he would do so without giving up the floor.  Reid's body language showed how much he despised Senator Cruz and how annoyed he was when Cruz cut him off for not asking a question.  Cruz was not about to allow Reid to bloviate during the last 15 minutes of his 21 hour ordeal.  It was so delicious to observe Ted Cruz's epic verbal takedown of Dick Durbin and Harry Reid in the Final Moments of His Anti-Obamacare Speech! [Note:  if you missed it, you can view several videos at link.]

That encounter said a lot about the liberal elites in Congress.  What's more, when Senator Cruz left the podium and Reid took to the microphone, the old geezer could not resist insulting the Senator from Texas by claiming that he (and by association, all of We The People who supported Cruz via our phone calls, emails, texts, and tweets) was an "anarchist."

I continue to find great blog posts that reveal just how impressive and important Cruz's efforts were.  The media of mass deception can try to disparage Cruz all they want - but the people who have watched this epic adventure in the Senate chamber on C-Span all know the truth.  Senator Ted Cruz has done something great that I personally think will go down in history as one of the most positive and successful filibuster-like speeches, EVER.

Senator Rand Paul's 13 hour filibuster was terrific, too!  In fact, when you read the following excerpt from Net Right Daily, you will see how great an impact that Senator Paul's filibuster ended up having against the current government drone policy. After Paul's filibuster, seventy-nine percent of the people agreed with Rand that the nomination of CIA Director John Brennan was a disastrous choice. During his speech, Paul explained and exposed how dangerous the Obama Administration's drone policy was, and 79% of the people ended up agreeing with the Senator!

We still do not know the full effects yet of Senator Ted Cruz's speech.  However, I would venture to guess that it will mostly be positive from millions of us who supported all that he stood up for during that 21 hour speech!  Time will tell what will ultimately be the results of his sublime talking points.  He was there for those of us who previously did not feel that we had any voice in Washington D.C.  Now, we have an advocate whose worthy goal is to MAKE D.C. LISTEN!

Ted Cruz’s real filibuster

By Brad Tidwell

Many in the D.C. establishment misunderstand Ted Cruz’s real goal in speaking for 21 hours straight — his goal is to Make D.C. Listen.

After Ted Cruz’s speech came to an end, 21 hours and 19 minutes after it began, the very next speech that was heard came from Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid. Reid’s summary of the speech (which he’d authorized Cruz to give): a “waste of time”.

Even before the speech, the objections from the usual D.C. corners had come fast and hard, claiming that Cruz’s speech was not a “real” filibuster, that it was merely an elongated speech that happened to last all night, that it wasn’t going to accomplish much, that it wouldn’t stop the vote, and that nobody would care. But what merit do these criticisms have?

The accusations from inside the Beltway that Cruz’s speech would fail because it would be unheard by anyone outside the Beltway are particularly ironic. For the talking heads to claim that speeches unheard by the unpolitical masses aren’t useful is the greatest critique of their existence ever devised. One would hope their newfound focus on utility would result in less chattering, but that’s pretty unlikely.

Cruz’s speech invites comparisons to Rand Paul’s 13 hour filibuster against the Obama nomination of CIA Director John Brennan. Much of Paul’s speech centered around the use of drone strikes rather than the nomination of Brennan, which was an opportunity to bring these important issues into the national conversation. After Senator Paul made his case, a poll showed 79 percent of Americans supported Paul’s position.

Was Rand Paul’s 13 hour speech a “waste of time” because it didn’t defeat the nomination of Brennan? It’s clear that defeating Brennan’s nomination was never Senator Paul’s ultimate goal. The filibuster rallied people around a sense of frustration they felt with the government that they saw as broken and needing change. Obamacare creates a lot of those same tensions, and there is also a clear majority of people who oppose the legislation. But their voices are not being heard.

It seems that despite the hand-wringing about procedural process, Cruz’s speech was, in fact, heard. And the reaction was strong — but not in the way that Democrats might have hoped for. In the physical world, 1.6 million people signed a petition to defund Obamacare. Cruz made constant mention of the phone lines and switchboards in the Senate that were being shut down with calls of those opposing Obamacare.

Online, there were also reports of unprecedented levels of email traffic going in to Senator’s offices. At one point, the hashtag #KeepCruzing was the second highest trending tag worldwide on Twitter. Other tags that also trended were #StandWithCruz, and the very telling #MakeDCListen. That last hashtag is particularly insightful, because if Cruz’s 21 hour speech had to fit into three words, “make D.C. listen” would make a perfect summary.

There has always been a physical goal to Cruz’s speech — to encourage Senate Republicans to vote no on cloture, and to say as he has for the last few days, that a vote for cloture is a vote to allow Obamacare to continue. But Cruz’s real motivation was exposed in the last few hours of his speech — his real goal, in his words, is to “change the broken ways of Washington, and start listening to the American people.”

The problem Cruz is directly addressing is the fact that while a clear majority oppose Obamacare, D.C. seems to be all about business as usual. There are in fact policy bills being proposed by the GOP to replace Obamacare that will likely never get past Harry Reid’s desk. The problem isn’t that the policies aren’t being proposed, the problem is they never get debated because of the partisan politics of the Senate.

That’s the real filibuster in this debate. Like Rand Paul’s filibuster, Cruz’s speech focused on something larger than just the question at hand.  Cruz was given a bully pulpit to talk about the human cost of Obamacare, and he did so eloquently. He escaped the noise, procedure and talking points, and went to the heart of the matter. While the Senate fails to act, he’s standing — and speaking — for those with no voice.

Four Concrete Reasons Ted Cruz's Fight Matters Very Much

I wholeheartedly applaud Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mike Lee, and the other Republican Senators who stood up and supported the epic 21 hour filibuster-style effort to let THE AMERICAN PEOPLE KNOW that they HEAR THEM regarding the need to defund Obamacare!  The points made were truly awesome, and I think that many Americans now see THE TRUTH about the fact that the DC "elites" DON'T LISTEN to their constituents!  The tweets read by Cruz revealed the fact that DC NEEDS TO LISTEN TO WE THE PEOPLE!

I plan to collect and post links here as I find them throughout the day which tell Americans why Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mike Lee, the other Republicans in the Senate, and WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE have THE RIGHT TO FIGHT AGAINST THE WASHINGTON ESTABLISHMENT!!!

Best of Cain: Four concrete reasons Ted Cruz's fight matters very much.

What Herman Cain wrote is so good, it needs to be posted in it's entirety!

Copy of post:

The answer to those who say nothing is being achieved here.
At its most basic, Ted Cruz’s stand on the Senate floor against ObamaCare is a declaration that we have a right to fight.

He made a vow that he would speak in opposition to ObamaCare until he was no longer able to stand, and since yesterday afternoon, he has kept going and going and going. That alone is a victory.
But you know what? A lot of the naysayers, Democrats, liberals, people in the mainstream media ask and even many establishment Republicans ask: Why bother?

They insist nothing tangible or practical can be achieved by fighting, as Senator Cruz and a handful of courageous allies are, to defund ObamaCare. They say the quest is quixotic and it’s doomed to failure
They are wrong. I will tell you why this is worth doing. There are four crucial reasons:

  1. The people’s voice. Washington has gotten so bad that most of the time we don’t feel we have anybody speaking for us. Ted Cruz is speaking on behalf of the American people, representing the voice of we the people, and not just the political class in Washington D.C. Harry Reid and others don’t want to hear the people’s voice. But Sens. Cruz, Lee, Paul and Rubio are willing to take the sarcasm and the scorn. The American people are frustrated because they do not feel their voice is being heard. People go to Washington and they drink the water and they fall into Washington ways. Not these guys. That matters. A lot.
  2. Awareness. The mainstream media simply ignores the worst aspects of ObamaCare, or makes fun of those who are pointing them out. Because of that, some of the things we’ve been trying to say in the alternative media and on talk radio escape the attention of a large percentage of the American people. If they don’t want the American people to know something, they can just hold back and not tell them. Marco Rubio made a great point about this today: When people really understand ObamaCare, and really know how horrible it is, that will cause an uprising and that will lead to the repeal of this terrible law.
  3. Unexpected results. You don’t always know what you can achieve by trying. We now learn that House Republicans are considering attaching a one-year delay of the individual mandate to the Senate bill. Two weeks ago they wouldn’t even consider that. But because a few people decided to really fight, their leadership is gaining followers for the movement. This is also bringing attention to the fact that Obama, along with members of the House and Senate wanted to exempt themselves and their staffs – and the federal government is paying a special subsidy to cover the cost of themselves and their staffs singing up for the ObamaCare exchanges. Sen. David Vitter is proposing an amendment to the continuing resolution to end that special congressional subsidy. Without Sen. Cruz fighting as he is, that would not be happening.
  4. Sen. Cruz and his small band of allies are defying the Washington way. People say the right things in order to get elected, but once they get there, they go through a Washington indoctrination. Some old Washington hand takes them aside and says, “Young man, you want to be here a long time? Here’s how things get done in this here town!” And they listen to the lords of Washington instead of continuing to listen to the people.
Senator Ted Cruz didn’t listen. Senator Marco Rubio didn’t listen. Senator Rand Paul didn’t listen. Senator Mike Lee didn’t listen. They’re a defiant bunch of young senatorial whippersnappers! I love it! They’re my kind of elected leaders. Maybe this is the type of stirring up we have needed for a long time. And maybe this will underscore a brand new declaration.

We have a right to fight!

An Open Letter to Senator Ted Cruz

Photo credit:


I continue to applaud U.S. Senator Ted Cruz from Texas and his efforts to encourage the defunding of Obamacare.  Despite the fact that he faces criticism from so many, including the RINOS in the Senate, he keeps drawing much needed attention to the disaster that is looming over America next Tuesday.

Critics try to analyze why he is doing this.  Some say it's only because he wants to run for president in 2016.  Others say that as a TEA Party conservative, Cruz is attempting to undermine the establishment Republicans in the Senate for political purposes.  Of course, the majority of the media of mass deception (even some Fox News pundits - which is disappointing!) attempts to paint him as "crazy," a "rabble-rouser," an "extremist," (note: the usual word that liberals use for Islamic terrorists!) and even an "anarchist" (as Harry ReiDUNCE has recently stated in his usual verbal diarrhea on the Senate floor).

I'm with Sarah Palin when she stated that Cruz is most interested in keeping the promises he made to his constituents when he ran for that Senate seat! She also had a lot to say against the RINOS in the Senate - which includes her former running mate in 2008- John McCain. McCain has been such a disappointment on many fronts lately. Like John Boehner, I think that McCain was most likely briefed with classified information regarding the arms deals of the Obama BADministration to both Libya and Syria. Therefore, he's not really interested in the formation of a select committee to get to the bottom of what really happened in Benghazi. I haven't heard McCain talk about Benghazi lately. He was probably all for the investigation until he found out that he (along with other members of Congress) could also be deemed complicit in the deaths of four Americans due to his own knowledge about the weapons deals.

Back to the topic.

The way I see it is that even if the defunding of Obamacare doesn't get done, at least Cruz will have drawn much needed attention to the fact that it is a disastrous law that needs to be abolished! We shall see what happens this Friday as the vote is taken (with a possible filibuster by Cruz - and the reason why is explained HERE) and the subsequent activity as the bill is taken up by the Senate and then goes back to the House. I think that the House Republicans and the conservative Republican Senators in the Senate should stand their ground on this issue.

The train wreck that is ObamaScare Hellcare will be such a disaster that we may see a repeat (in 2014) of the election in 2010 where Republicans (hopefully, conservatives) will not only keep the House, but also take the Senate back!

Many people justifiably fear that once this Hellcare bill is implemented, it will be very difficult (if not impossible) to undo by the time a newly elected president is sworn in. That might be true, but I certainly hope not!

The other hope that we have is that the bill will be delayed for at least one year. Apparently, reports in the news tell us that the exchanges ready and aren't in place; so the states may have more time to refuse implementation that way. Admittedly, I do not know all the ins and outs of such a procedure, but hope rings eternal.

Another reason that I admire Senator Ted Cruz is that he is not afraid of failing. He has stuck to his guns in this very challenging effort. He made a pledge to his constituents in Texas to do all that he can to defund Obamacare. He is ignoring all of his critics (and there are legions of them!) from the left, the right, and especially the media of mass corruption. I'm sure that Senator Ted Cruz doesn't visit and read blogs. He's too busy doing all the hard work currently at hand. However, I'd like to provide some encouragement for him by sharing words of inspiration in an open letter which includes readings from the new Turning Points Devotional magazine of October, 2013.

Open Letter:

Dear Senator Cruz,

I can't thank you enough, from the bottom of my heart, for all that you are doing in your efforts to defund the disastrous law known as "The Affordable Care Act."  The title of the law is oxymoronic, because it is neither an affordable health care plan for the American people, nor is it a law that genuinely cares about us and the economic hardships that so many people are already enduring.  It is simply an "act" that is designed to take over 1/3 of our economy by the current tyrannical government officials in Washington D.C. who had the gall to exempt themselves from this terrible law!  I ask, how crazy and egregiously unfair is that?

Please continue your efforts to get this awful law defunded.  Do not listen to the pundits and naysayers who are all trying to gang up on you and discourage your urgent goal to keep your promise to your constituents in Texas by doing all that you can to defund this monstrous mistake which will ruin health care here in America.  There are millions of Americans, like myself, who are with you all the way on this issue!  We are so grateful that SOMEONE is not afraid to speak up for us; which is what many other Republicans in the Senate are, unfortunately, unwilling to do. 

I continue to hope and pray that you will get some Democrats in the Senate on your side regarding this very important defunding issue.  It is crucial that Obamacare is defunded and eventually discarded for a more reasonable health care law.  This is a defining time in the history of our nation. 

Meanwhile, I would like to share two devotional messages of encouragement with you.  I pray that even if you never get the chance to read the words, that the prayers of millions for you across this great nation will lift you up in your efforts; knowing that God has called you into action for such a time as this.  He has equipped you to act during America's time of trouble.

Turning Point Ministries Devotional for October 2, 2013:

The Lord...never fails.  Zephaniah 3:5

Look up the word "fail" in a thesaurus and you'll find terms like:  blunder, break down, fall, fizzle, flop, blunder, fold, lose out, and disappoint.  These are strongly negative words, and sometimes we're so afraid of them we don't move forward in the endeavors God has for us.  What would you do today that you aren't doing if you knew you could not fail?

When fear of failure keeps us from moving forward in faith, fear has won.

While we can't guarantee that all our projects and ambitions will end successfully (as we define "success"), we can be certain that God's plan for our lives will be fulfilled as we trust Him.  Zephaniah 3:5 says, "The LORD is righteous in her midst, He will do no unrighteousness.  Every morning He brings His justice to light; He never fails."

Don't worry about success or failure.  Concentrate on trusting God and obeying Him.  Move forward, knowing He never blunders, breaks down, fall, fizzles, flops, flounders, folds, loses out, or disappoints.

He never fails.

Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not; as Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be.
- Thomas O, Chisholm, in the hymn "Great Is Thy Faithfulness."


Turning Point Ministries Devotional for October 1, 2013:

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.  In God (I will praise His word), in God I have put my trust; I will not fear.  What can flesh do to me?  Psalm 56:3-4

Fear is the first step toward obedience.  In Scripture, when God calls a person to a specific task or role, there first response is usually an objection, question, or doubt.  Fearfully, they ask, "Why have You chosen me?  I'm not qualified.  I've never done this before.,"

God chose Israel, although it was a small, insignificant nation (Deuteronomy 7:7).  God chose Moses, although he had run away from Egypt in fear.  God chose Joseph, although he was ridiculed and sold by his brother.  Jesus chose an unlikely group of men to be His disciples.  God delights in choosing those for whom it is impossible to fulfill His commands in their own strength.  He assures us "Cal upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me"  (Psalm 50:15).

When God calls us, He equips us.  If we get stuck in fear, we are forgetting who God is.  Although fear is a natural first step,m we must move from fear to faith to obey God.  As we focus on Him, remembering His power and strength, our faith increases.  He will be glorified through our obedience and bring to completion all He has promised.

Faith isn't the ability to believe long and far into the misty future.  It's simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.

-Joni Eareckson Tada


When I read those devotionals, I could not help but think that they genuinely applied to you, Senator Cruz!

May God bless you and your family!

And may God continue to bless the United States of America!

Why The Unholy Alliance of Islam and Communism? Taqiyya?


I have been racking my brain trying to figure out why House Speaker John Boehner refuses to form a Watergate-style congressional committee to investigate Benghazi.  It looks like Trevor Louden has figured it out and has revealed the reason for Boehner's reluctance.  It stems from the fact that Boehner had been briefed on the Syria situation regarding arming the rebels against Assad's army; along with his knowledge of arms shipments to al-Qaeda terrorists in Libya and Syria. If this is true, then it may come out in the hearings that Boehner could also be held accountable for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi!

I think that Boehner, McCain, Graham and others who have trusted Islamists in the war on terror have been fooled by radical Islam's doctrine of al taqiyya.   [Please read that al taqiyya link.  You will better understand the rest of this post.]

Pressure Builds on Boehner Over Benghazi

Excerpt quote:

Informed speculation mounted at Monday’s Accuracy in Media conference, which officially launched the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi, that House Speaker John Boehner’s opposition to a Watergate-style congressional committee to investigate Benghazi stems from his knowledge of arms shipments to al-Qaeda terrorists in Libya and Syria.

The al-Qaeda terrorist attack on the American diplomatic mission at Benghazi, in Libya, on September 11, 2012, resulted in the deaths of four Americans, who were left to die, rather than be rescued, and has been called by some the “Benghazi Betrayal.”

The dead were U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, American diplomat Sean Smith, and State Department security officers Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods.

Coming just eight weeks before the 2012 presidential election, the Obama administration falsely blamed the attack on a spontaneous reaction to a video critical of Islam, rather than blaming it on al Qaeda.

Charles Woods spoke with emotion at the AIM conference about the loss of his son and asked for people not only to press for answers as to what really happened at Benghazi, but to pray for the country.

Christopher Farrell, Director of Investigations and Research for Judicial Watch, said at the conference that Obama’s lies and distortions about the attack are designed to obscure the central truth that the administration was arming al Qaeda.

“That’s what they don’t want broadcast or printed anywhere,” he said.

As incredible as it sounds, former CIA officer Clare Lopez said support for al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other Islamists groups has become the official foreign policy of the United States under Obama. She said the policy has been on display in Libya, Egypt, Syria, and the United Nations, through the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH)
says about Benghazi: “For the past year, this administration has failed to provide sufficient answers, fully comply with subpoenas, and make available relevant individuals to provide testimony. In short, this administration hasn’t been upfront with the American people or this Congress. Republicans will not stop until we get to the truth. We will press forward with our investigation until we have answers, full accountability, and justice.”

However, he opposes the proposal (
H.Res. 36) to create a bipartisan House Select Committee to fully investigate the attack and the cover-up. Introduced by Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), the proposal has 175 co-sponsors.

Several speakers at the CCB conference agreed that being exposed as knowledgeable about the Obama administration’s secret operations in advance of the Benghazi disaster could be extremely embarrassing to House Speaker Boehner and may explain his opposition to Rep. Wolf’s legislative proposal.

Boehner is a member of the so-called “gang of eight” in Congress, members secretly briefed by the administration on top-secret intelligence operations.

Investigative journalist Kenneth Timmerman, who is writing a book on Benghazi, said, “Did they get briefed? Were they briefed on this arms trafficking operation out of Benghazi to the Syrian rebels or were they not briefed? And if they were briefed, is that perhaps a reason why they don’t want a special committee, because in fact they knew about this operation and did nothing to stop it?”

Rep. Wolf spoke to the conference and encouraged the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi, under the direction of AIM Editor Roger Aronoff, to get to the bottom of what happened. Members of this commission spoke at the all-day affair and vowed to continue to press for answers from the administration and Speaker Boehner.

Well...that certainly explains A LOT - DOESN'T IT?

Just the typical "I don't want to lose my job over this scandal" bulls**t is one reason why getting to the truth about Benghazi has been stonewalled for over a year!

Sounds like Boehner, McCain, and that dopey Lindsey Graham were either misled or complicit in the same way when they claimed that the rebels in Syria were not affiliated with Muslim terrorist groups like al Qaeda and/or the Muslim Brotherhood!  After all, the Muslim Brotherhood members here in the U.S. have had access to Obummer's White House for five years!  They have visited so often, they probably wore out their own foot path on the carpet!

For some time now I have been trying to figure out why Obama's "advisor" - Valerie Jarrett - (who is Iranian) would side against Iran in the war on terror?  Obama's siding with the rebels put him against the Iranians, Russia, and Syria.  But now, we have Russia's communist dictator (Putin) getting involved in the Syria conflict; siding with Assad and also planning to meet and talk with Iran! 

Even Obama is planning on holding "talks" with Iran's new leader!

I'd like to ask readers some important questions.  To start off, I will also add that this is a "Talk Wisdom Reports - You Decide" portion of this post.

1.  Do you think that it is possible that the entire threat to attack the Syrian army and Assad because of the use of chemical weapons on people there was a just a ruse? 

2.  Was it their  [Obama and his handlers] plan all along to ultimately side with Russia, Syria and even Iran in the Mideast conflicts and turmoil?  The outcry by Americans (and many around the world) against "shooting missiles across the bow" in Syria because of the crossed "red line" (which blamed Assad of gassing his own people with chemical weapons) gave Obama and his ilk the chance to back out when Putin came in and "saved the day."
3.  Do you think that it is possible that this was the plan all along?

Glenn Beck called for Obama's impeachment for arming the rebels (who are mostly al Qaeda) on his radio show.

4.  Do you think that Obama and his criminal enterprise of nefarious characters would switch sides  [from supporting the rebels to agreeing with Putin, and by default, Assad] so abruptly?

If you have been reading this blog over the past three years, then you may have already seen my post from 2010 where I questioned the unholy and evil alliance of radical Islam and Communism.  However, what was displayed in the photo at one of my former blog posts entitled Thank You S.F. Liberals - You Die Last is coming to fruition via the ObaMARXIST BADministration!

Here is the image at the above link.  Notice that the man holding the sign is wearing Muslim terrorist garb.  The man walking next to him is wearing a commie red t-shirt with the image of Che Guevara! 

How ironic that the Muslim man is holding that sign (below)!  Here's a quote from Che Guevara that may explain their union of nefarious ideologies:
"I don't care if I fall as long as someone else picks up my gun and keeps on shooting."
Che Guevara

I wish that more Americans would heed Ronald Reagan's advice:

Ronald Reagan 
“How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

Ronald Reagan

 What those two men (seen in photo below, marching together, BTW, in an anti-Israel demonstration during the Bush presidential years) represent is the forming of an alliance between radical Islam and Communism!  Also, notice what the sign says:  "Thank You S.F. (San Francisco) Liberals - You Die Last."  How ANYONE could possibly support either group is beyond any semblance of reason!  Liberals are being USED by both!  Yet they are either complicit in either ideology or just too damn ignorant to realize it!

I thought that the evil alliance of radical Islam and Communism (Putin and his ilk) would one day need to battle against each other for dominance of the world. This may still happen. Perhaps the caliphate-hungry Iran is using Communist Putin in the usual Muslim deceptive tactics known as al Taqiyya?  Muslims might join together and tolerate Communists in an old taqiyya-style kind of temporary alliance.  Why?  Because of their joined hatred of Israel!  They are uniting with the intended plan of making a future collaborated attempt at destroying Israel!

But then, which one [Islam or Communism] will ultimately win out?

Well, this terrorist's quote shows what radical Islam believes:

"Sons of Islam everywhere, the jihad is a duty - to establish the rule of Allah on earth and to liberate your countries and yourselves from America's domination and its Zionist allies, it is your battle - either victory or martyrdom."

Ahmed Yassin
H/T Brainy Quote

And, where does the U.S. fit into this picture?

If the Lord Jesus Christ tarries, then hopefully America will break free from this egregiously criminal ObamaFRAUD tyrannical government with a new conservative leader who will help get us back on track towards restoring our beloved Constitutional Republic!

If not, then we might very well be headed into the fulfillment of end times *prophecy.

I will be back later. Have important errands to do. I will add more links within this post and add more commentary.

Update 9/22/13

*The prophecies written in the Bible accurately describe the ancient nations that will surround Israel in the last days in an attempt to destroy Her.  Here is an excerpt from a former post about a prophecy found in Psalm 83:2-8.

Today, we are continually witnessing Biblical prophecy happening right before our very eyes!

As astounding as it was, the prophecies surrounding the rebirth of Israel did not stop with the declaration of Israel's independence in 1948.

Three thousand years ago God inspired King David to predict that the reborn nation of Israel would be immediately surrounded by enemies, including the Arab nations of Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria.

"For lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken craftly counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Hoab; and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah" (Psalm 83:2-8).

In this incredible prophecy, David described the modern states of the Middle East by naming the ancient nations that have now joined with the Palestinians in their attempt to destroy the Jewish state in the last days.

This ancient prophetic list of nations is fascinating, as it enumerates virtually every one of the nations in the Arab confederacy that oppose Israel's existence today:

Edom.........from Esau, brother of Jacob (Jordan)

Ismaelites...descended from Ishmael, son of Hagar (Arabs)

Moab.........son of Lot, (Jordan, east of Dead Sea)

Hagarenes....descended from one of the 12 sons of Hagar

Gebal........ancient Byblus, (north of today's Beirut)

Ammon........son of Lot, (capital of Jordan)

Amalek.......descended from Esau (southern Jordan)

Philistines..from Ham, (throughout Palestine, Syria)

Tyre.........a Phoenician city (Lebanon)

Assur........founded Assyria; (Iraq - Iran)

Children of Lot, Moab, and Ammon, (Jordan)


In addition to the prophecy in Psalms, below you will find more end times prophecy in Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 35:1-5, 10 describes the coming judgment of God against these Arab nations, including Edom (Mount Seir) in Jordan, because of their centuries-old hatred of the Jews.Ezekiel 35:1 - 15
Judgment on Mount Seir

35 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 "Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it, 3 and say to it, 'Thus says the Lord God:

"Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you;
I will stretch out My hand against you,
And make you most desolate;
4 I shall lay your cities waste,
And you shall be desolate.
Then you shall know that I am the Lord.

5 "Because you have had an ancient hatred, and have shed the blood of the children of Israel by the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, when their iniquity came to an end, 6 therefore, as I live," says the Lord God, "I will prepare you for blood, and blood shall pursue you; since you have not hated blood, therefore blood shall pursue you. 7 Thus I will make Mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it the one who leaves and the one who returns. 8 And I will fill its mountains with the slain; on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines those who are slain by the sword shall fall. 9 I will make you perpetually desolate, and your cities shall be uninhabited; then you shall know that I am the Lord.

10 "Because you have said, 'These two nations and these two countries shall be mine, and we will possess them,' although the Lord was there, 11 therefore, as I live," says the Lord God, "I will do according to your anger and according to the envy which you showed in your hatred against them; and I will make Myself known among them when I judge you. 12 Then you shall know that I am the Lord. I have heard all your blasphemies which you have spoken against the mountains of Israel, saying, 'They are desolate; they are given to us to consume.' 13 Thus with your mouth you have boasted against Me and multiplied your words against Me; I have heard them."

14 'Thus says the Lord God: "The whole earth will rejoice when I make you desolate. 15 As you rejoiced because the inheritance of the house of Israel was desolate, so I will do to you; you shall be desolate, O Mount Seir, as well as all of Edom--all of it! Then they shall know that I am the Lord."'

Ezekiel gave another prophecy against Edom (also called Seir); his first prophecy against Edom is found in 25:12-14. In this prophecy, Ezekiel is probably using Edom to represent all the nations opposed to God's people Chapter 36 says that Israel will be restored, while this chapter says that Edom (God's enemies) will be made "a desolate waste."

Note on 35:2 - Edom offered to help destroy Jerusalem and rejoiced when the city fell. Edom's long-standing hostility against God's people resulted in God's judgment.

Note on 35:6-8 - Ezekiel prophesied not only against the people of Edom, but also against their mountains and land. Their home territory was Mount Seir. Mountains, symbols of strength and power, represented the pride of these people who thought they could get away with evil. Edom's desire for revenge turned against them. Edom received the punishment they were so hasty to give out.

Last Year Obama Abandoned America's Sons in Benghazi. This Year Obama's Democrats Abandoned Their Parents.

Hat tip for graphic:  Freedom Lover at TEA Party Community.

People are very outraged about the Democrats who walked out of the Benghazi hearings yesterday before the parents who showed up to testify said their peace.

This is not a small thing people!  My stats are through the roof on this. 

Hat tip:  Mike B. from TEA Party Community

Below is a copy of the searches that led people to my little ole' blog for this story today.  Just imagine the hundreds of thousands who clicked on other links to read about this SHAMEFUL display of disrespect for the two grieving parents!!!
