And I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus,” wrote the Apostle John in Revelation.

On Sunday, a video surfaced that showed the black-clad jihadists of the ISIL franchise in Libya, The Islamic State in Tripoli Province, beheading 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, staining the waves with blood.

The jihadists made it clear: They beheaded the men because they were “people of the cross, followers of the hostile [sic] Egyptian Church” and announced their aspiration to capture Rome.

Egypt launched swift retaliation, bombing at least seven locations in Libya. Meanwhile, Barack Obama still denied the religious causes of the violence when in his White House statement he said, “We offer our condolences to the families of the victims and our support to the Egyptian government and people as they grieve for their fellow citizens.

ISIL’s barbarity knows no bounds.” Not only does Obama deny the religious motivations of ISIL, he dishonors victims by denying why they were murdered. Not knowing the enemy – that’s how wars are lost.

Obama has said in the past Christian’s have stains in their past and he pointed to the crusades which were wars waged against Arab aggression. Historians note that these crusades were rather ineffectual in their efforts to thwart the Muslim aggression. Perhaps they too underestimated the barbarity of these Muslim terrorists. These groups are bloodthirsty and their barbarism knows no bounds. These groups are not civil and they do not respect life. They are lawless and savage. They view their fight as holy and right and will stop at nothing to meet their goal of world domination. Submit or die is the Muslim cry to all infidels.

 

Civil societies have a hard time dealing with such barbarism because they are constrained by human decency, a Christian moral compass, that restrains their actions and stays their hand from returning upon the heads of these barbarians the same cruelty they dish out.

The Israelites were faced with a really tough decision when God commanded them to utterly destroy the people living in the land He was giving to the Israelites as and inheritance.

16 However, you must not let any living thing survive among the cities of these people the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance.

17 You must completely destroy them-the Hittite, Amorite, Canaanite, Perizzite, Hivite, and Jebusite-as the Lord your God has commanded you,

18 so that they won’t teach you to do all the detestable things they do for their gods, and you sin against the Lord your God. Deut 20:16-18

God had driven these people from the land because of their DETESTABLE PRACTICES and the THINGS THEY WOULD DO FOR THEIR gods.

I can understand why it would be hard to completely wipe out a people including women and children and livestock. You see these people do not hesitate to kill women and children and wipe out anyone who gets in their way. I wonder if God would call these acts DETESTABLE?

Egypt is doing what America and others threatened by ISIS should be doing. Go on the offensive with a war plan whose goal is the complete elimination of these groups who are doing these detestable practices for their gods.

And that is the way I see it what say you?

Happy Birthday, Mr. Lincoln

Lincoln’s birthday is upon us. And with a reluctant but free-spending captain at the helm of the free world’s flagship, we are reminded how sorely we miss Lincoln’s genuine strength of character, bold sense of purpose, and lifelong passion for defending American values and ideals.

How America Lost its Soul – The Moral and Intellectual Collapse of the United States

What happened in the United States that got us to this point in history? There are lots of theories and avenues to the insanity. But if there is one institution that’s done it, it’s our educational system. Most schools in the United States – from kindergarten through the graduate level, including law schools – have jettisoned any remnant of a biblical moral order.

Citywide Nude Bike Ride Prompts Montana Lawmaker to Propose a Ban On These ‘Obscene’ Clothing Items

Pretty much anyone can tell you that yoga pants have grown in popularity for women in recent years. Sales of yoga apparel, including yoga pants, increased by 45% in 2013. But(t) one state representative in Montana wants to outlaw them. Why? Because he thinks they’re obscene. According to the Billings Gazette, State Rep.

With all the really important issues facing America this one Montana State Rep felt Yoga pants was a high priority item that needed to be addressed by legislation. It is important to note that the council tabled the motion.

I wonder who issued the permit for the NAKED BIKE RIDE?


College Students Refuse Meatless Monday Propaganda
Those promoting Meatless Monday campaign were championing the war on man-made climate change

The fundamental lie that is used to make Meatless Monday seem like a good idea is anthropogenic global warming. I don’t know if the college students who pushed back hard against the Meatless Monday campaign are outright skeptics about man-made climate change, or if they simply refuse to believe meatlessness is an essential part of dealing with that claim.


The Last Word

“I wish you would bear with me in a little foolishness. Do bear with me! For I feel a divine jealousy for you. … I repeat, let no one think me foolish. But even if you do, accept me as a fool. … For you gladly bear with fools, being wise yourselves! For you bear it if someone makes slaves of you, or devours you, or takes advantage of you, or puts on airs, or strikes you in the face. To my shame, I must say, we were too weak for that! …” (2 Corinthians 11:1–2, 16, 19–21, ESV).

TurboTax Temporarily Halts E-Filing In All States Amid Fraud Concerns

Up to 18 states are reporting significant upticks in fraudulent activity and there may be a common thread: tax preparation software.y


As of yesterday, Thursday, February 5, Intuit is temporarily pausing transmission of state e-filing tax returns. This is effective for all states. Intuit will be working with the states today to begin turning transmissions back on.

In the meantime, to assist any customers who believe they are victims of tax fraud, Intuit has a dedicated toll-free number, 1.800.944.8596, with direct access to specially trained identity protection agents who will provide comprehensive support and filing assistance. You might note that’s the same number that Minnesota has provided to taxpayers. It is not a state-specific number. It is available to all potentially affected taxpayers.

In addition, Intuit will provide identity protection services and free credit monitoring, as well as provide access to all versions of its software or to the assistance of one of Intuit’s credentialed tax experts who will prepare taxes for affected customers at no expense.

It’s important to note that as of now, this issue is only being reported by taxpayers using TurboTax.

So far, there has been no indication that federal returns have been affected.

The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading. Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%.

The unemployment numbers are misleading because they fail to indicate the number of people who have given up looking for work but are UNEMPLOYED. The number also includes part-time workers who are counted as EMPLOYED by the government figures but are not working at a full-time job. In fact full-time jobs are at an all time low with only 44% of the population holding full-time jobs (30+ hours a week). If you work one hour a week and get paid a measely $20 you are counted as employed by the government numbers.

Since Obama assumed the office of President the JUnited States has lost 13million full-time jobs and to date has only gained back 3 million. We have another 10 million jobs to go just to break even. There is nothing good about the jobs report other than to say it is trending upward ever so slowly.


By the Numbers: Obama’s Economic, Jobs and Deficit Performance Worst on Record

Given what we know now, only Barack Obama could attempt to characterize his economic record as one of achievement rather than historic failure. Only Obama could attempt to characterize his record on deficits, which dwarf those of any other president that preceded him, as a successful one.

And only Obama could characterize today’s record federal spending and incoming tax receipts as “senseless austerity.”


How Public School Administrators Endanger Special-Needs Kids
When faced with the choice between protecting children or protecting the public school system, the system’s lawyers chose to protect the system.

If a parent in Virginia repeatedly locked a 7-year-old child in a closet, child-protective social service agencies would come down on him like a ton of bricks. But if a school administrator does the same thing, he has a green light to keep it up. Hypothetical? Not at all.

Did you hear what Obama said? Do you really care what Obama says?

Speaking from the White House Tuesday afternoon while flanked by people who have “benefited” from Obamacare, President Obama said his signature piece of legislation is working. The speech was part of a new public relations campaign to try to salvage what’s left of the disastrous Obamacare rollout.
“About a half million people are poised to gain health care coverage…and that number…will keep on growing,” Obama said while ignoring the more than five million people who have lost their health insurance thanks to Obamacare. “This law is working and will work into the future.”

Yes indeed the Obamacare law is working its magic like it was designed to do. The law was never intended to actually HELP anyone but government potentates gain more power and control over our lives.

Here is how the Obamacare law is working. It is DRIVING UP HEALTH CARE COSTS, causing grumblings from the American people, which is precisely what Obama intended. He wants the people upset and crying for a FIX to this mess and then he will come riding in on his TROJAN horse and bring with him Government run healthcare.

You see this law was never intended to actually lower costs and make dealings with your insurance companies better or the relationship between you and your healthcare provider more secure, its sole purpose was to dislodge you from your secure, privately held and managed healthcare programs into one that is completely controlled by the central government. So for its intended purpose the LAW IS WORKING and will continue to work its havoc until such time as the government gets what it wants. THE ABILITY to decide who lives and who dies, as a matter of law and a way to cut costs.

The government aim is to make the healthcare system more efficient. HOW YOU ASK? Simple if no one actually gets any health care the system is very efficient since everyone will die before actually getting care, thus there is nothing to pay out and the government gets to keep all that money they have stolen from you with the promise of HEALTHCARE.

 
Yes my friends I am afraid OBAMACARE is working. It’s just not working for you and I and my friends Obama doesn’t care. There is NO CARE in Obamacare and that’s the truth.

ObamaCare Fix as Bad as ObamaCare Itself | FrontPage Magazine
Wed Nov 20 2013 18:36:07 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time)

Last Thursday, to extricate himself from the political consequences of repeatedly and shamelessly lying to the American public, President Obama proposed a “fix” to ObamaCare. ”Insurers can extend current plans that otherwise would be canceled into 2014 and Americans whose plans have been canceled can choose to re-enroll in the same kind of plan,” the president said. ”This fix won’t solve every problem for every person, but it’s going to help a lot of people. Doing more would require work with Congress,” he added, again dismissing the legislative branch of government as an unnecessary impediment to implementing his agenda. Unfortunately for millions of Americans, the fix is as disastrous as ObamaCare itself.

Who can forget all the promises made by Obama while trying to enact the ObamaNoCare act which he wanted to fool the American citizens into embracing. If you have forgotten here is a recap of all the lies that were sold to the American people.

Democrats feel political heat despite ObamaCare ‘fix’ | Fox News
Wed Nov 20 2013 18:55:29 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time)

President Obama’s fix to reverse millions of insurance cancellation notices may have eased slightly the pressure he faces, but Democrats at state level still face political trouble and fear what it may mean for the 2014 midterm elections.

One such Democrat is West Virginia Rep. Nick Rahall. The 19-term veteran, a perennial target in a GOP-shifting state, was one of many Democrats who recited to constituents Obama’s assurance that they could keep insurance coverage they liked under the 2010 health care overhaul.

This promise proved untrue and ignited an uproar that eventually forced Obama to reverse himself and on Thursday propose the fix that he claims will allow consumers to keep their plans. The debacle has sent many Democrats scrambling into political self-preservation mode ahead of the 2014 elections.

Rahall was among 39 Democrats who, despite a Obama veto threat, voted Friday for a Republican measure that would let insurers continue selling policies to individuals that fall short of the health care law’s requirements. It was approved 261-157.

“I’m concerned about my integrity with voters who have returned me here for 38 years. They know me enough to know I wouldn’t purposely mislead them,” Rahall said this past week. “They have that confidence in me, and I want them to continue to have that confidence in me.”

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/11/16/democrats-still-feeling-political-heat-despite-obamacare-fix/

We simply can not trust those who lied to us repeatedly to fix the mess they created. Are we really that gullible to expect these lying politicians to actually care about what is good and right after spending so much political capital to sell us on this huge FAIL? If they lied to us to implement this mess do you really think they intend to tell us the truth about fixing it?

All this talk about a ObamaNoCare fix is simply political posturing in hopes that ‘we the people’ will forget how we got this nightmare in the first place. The only thing these lying politicos want to fix is their own campaigns and political aspirations.

Instead of real solutions we are being bombarded with show trials, phony House bills, and a constant barrage of the airwaves with all the ills of ObamaNoCare while these same news outlets were complicit in the implementation of this disaster from day one. When someone actually did stand up and to shed some truth on this disaster the media shouted them down and berated their character.

Ezekiel 34:18-19 (GW)
18 Isn’t it enough for you to feed on the good pasture? Must you trample the rest of the pasture with your feet? You drink clean water. Must you muddy the rest of the water with your feet?
19 Must my sheep eat what your feet have trampled and drink what your feet have muddied?

As usual the ones who pass these laws make sure that they do not have to abide by them but make sure that the rest of us do.  These politicians have theirs and then they trample all over the good grain so as not to leave anything behind for the rest of us. It is they who are causing all the ills in our society, and yet they wipe their mouths and say don’t look at me.

America we have bigger problems to  contend with than just Obamacare.  We must not forget about Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS Scandal, and NSA snooping. The fact is if there wasn’t so much lawlessness happening on all levels of government a   horror story like Obamacare would never have happened. But it did because of all the kick-backs. buy-backs, threats, and strong-armed tactics of those pushing for more and more power over individuals.

When most people think of tyranny, and totalitarian government, they think of rigid rules and harshly enforced laws. But what tyranny and big government really involves in the majority of cases is a lot of politically connected law breakers. Regulations offer opportunities for bribery or kickbacks in many ways. Laws can be selectively enforced so that some criminals get protection and offer an unofficial income stream to the ones responsible for enforcing the law. In a democracy, criminals can get the vote out in neighborhoods and then expect favors in return from the winning candidate.

This is political life as usual especially in urban areas where unions make sure that ‘their man or woman’ gets elected to keep up their grip on the purse strings of the well-connected. These racketeers pay off politicians to receive favorable laws or regulations that punish their competition and rewards them with graft and kick-backs, in return they fill the coffers of the politicians and the cycle starts all over again.

We really ought not to be surprised by any of this since this is how things work in D.C.

Yes my friends all is not well in America, and to remedy our ills we need to swallow the painful pill of truth. Washington is not the cure to what ails us it is the cause. And those who made the mess are not qualified to clean up the mess since they really like muddying things up.
