What began in 1492 with the Italian-born explorer, Cristoforo Columbus, whose treachery against the indigenous peoples of Hispaniola began when he discovered their access to vast amounts of gold, culminated in the nineteenth century with Manifest Destiny, or the belief that it was the divinely sanctioned right of the white man to expand across the American continent, to dominate the land from sea to shining sea, while actively murdering thousands of Indians standing in their way. Meanwhile, the United States Government managed to find a way to break nearly every treaty they ever made with the different Indian nations, swindling them out of their land, and destroying their way of life forever. By their very actions and through words spoken over them calling for their demise, the government bureaucrats cursed the American Indians.
"For the wicked in pride and arrogance hotly pursue and persecute the poor... His mouth is full of cursing, deceit, oppression, (fraud); under his tongue are trouble and sin, mischief and iniquity." Psalm 10: 4, 7
I believe this spiritual curse against the Indians is the primary reason for the unprecedented levels of terrible poverty and despair on many Indian reservations today. Native people are too often the victims of violent crime, and many suffer from addictions to drugs and alcohol. The rate of suicide is higher in the Indian communities than anywhere else in the United States. Many native communities are beset by serious health issues. Type II Diabetes and Heart Disease are rampant due to poor diet and alcoholism. The federal government's answer to Indian poverty was allowing the tribes to open up casinos on their reservations. This has not only brought gambling to Indian Country, but an increase in fraud and political corruption within certain tribal business councils.
After the American Indians were forcibly uprooted and exiled from their ancestral lands and pushed on to federal reservations, there came upon them yet another plague of sorts, a "conversion movement".
Conducted by self-professed Christians, these deceitful religious groups' primary motives were not only steeped in religious pride and church legalism, but a greedy desire to take even more lands away from the Indians.
"With our tongues we prevail; our lips are our own to command at our will, who is lord over us?" Psalm 12:4
These groups believed the best way to deal with saving the Indian's soul was to "kill the Indian, save the man" while destroying Indian families by forcibly taking children away from their parents and putting them in specially designated "Indian Schools". Many of the children placed in these institutions were the victims of terrible cruelty inflicted by sadistic instructors determine to indoctrinate them into accepting the ways of the white man.
Bereft of the love and compassion of God, and the leading of the Holy Spirit, these schools were nothing more than religious indoctrination camps which produced a bitter harvest of broken spirits filled with hurt and rejection, and generated a great degree of hostility and suspicion towards Christianity in Indian Country.
God loves his native children. This is why He sent His beloved Son, Yeshua, into the world, so that none may perish.
"To grant consolation and joy to those who mourn in Zion...to give them an ornament of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a heavy burdened and failing spirit...that they may be called oaks of righteousness, lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice , and right standing with God, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
Believers need to stand together in prayer for the Indian communities of America. We need to ask the Lord to raise a mighty army of indigenous brothers and sisters, purchased by the blood of the Lamb, and led by the Holy Spirit, to trample the spiritual strongholds that have prevented true revival from taking place, and allow them to witness the Gospel message of love and forgiveness; to be a light for Christ to those languishing under the mantle of spiritual darkness.
"And they shall rebuild the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former desolations and renew the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations." Isaiah 61:4

I say I have reason to suspect this woman vice principal because since this incident I have talked to several other parents who have had run ins with this same woman covering up bullying done to their kids. This woman is black and she has a history of covering up bullying done by black students. She is a perfect example of what is terribly wrong with our society today. People in a position of authority over others who use their skin color and/or race to silence and intimidate others. I think that the cowardly school administration is afraid to confront her behavior because they probably fear her bringing a "racial discrimination" lawsuit against them. Meanwhile, kids like my son, who was traumatized by this incident, and other kids are made to suffer. And what about those bullies? What lesson is someone like this woman vice-principal teaching them? How to be devious and how to lie just like her! Now I ask you, had this happened in a K-Mart bathroom or any public restroom, would someone have been arrested for "pretending to take pictures" of someone over a toilet stall? Needless to say, my son no longer attends our local highschool and neither will my younger son.

their lives on September 11, 2001. Never mind that people trapped in
the crumbling Twin Towers had the equally horrible choices of either
jumping to their deaths on the sidewalks or burning to death inside
the buildings. Never mind that for weeks after this day of infamy, the
air in Lower Manhattan still reeked with the odor of burnt flesh and
death. If you are opposed to the abomination of a mosque being built
near Ground Zero, the left-wing news media and other liberal groups
have labeled you “Islamophobic” and worst, “racist”.
So, where is the money coming from to fund this proposed mosque?
And why is it being called "The Cordoba House"? Contrary to the
liberal revisionist spin on history, the Muslim conquest of Cordoba
Spain was not a big lovefest between Muslims and Christians and Jews.
Christians nuns were raped and mutilated, priests were randomly
crucified. Jews were also raped, mutilated, and hacked to pieces with
scimitars. This massacre included pregnant women, children, and
babies. Christians and Jews who survived the initial invasion, for
many years afterwards, were subjected to a dhimmi tax in order to
continue living alongside their Muslim conquerors. However, the only
part of this gruesome history of 400 years of Muslim invasions and
occupations in Europe the derelict Left offers up to our
impressionable children in their history books is how the West alone
was responsible for the Holy Crusades.
For our president to come out in support of the proposed mosque near
Ground Zero is yet another deliberate provocation towards the American
people. Obama has already revealed his contempt for the ordinary,
hard-working, patriotic American tax payers with his bail-outs and
socialism-through-healthcare, not to mention his determination to
dismantle and change our Constitution.
Meanwhile, why is the Left so determine to coddle Muslims and Islam?
They not only see nothing wrong with the building of this mosque, but
also support Great Flags Amusement Parks decision to host Muslim
Family Day on September 12, 2010. I am sorry, I don’t buy the excuse,
“Well, it’s the end of the Muslim holiday of Ramadan.” So, what?
Why did they choose the same weekend when most Americans are
remembering and commemorating 9/11? I feel this was done on purpose,
again to provoke the outrage of many Americans, myself included, so
that the Left can use our anger against us by calling us
“Islamophobics” and “religiously intolerant” and of course, “racists”.
Let me also make it clear that while there are many peace-loving
Muslims who are good and decent people and would never harm anyone,
there is nothing tolerant or peaceful about Islam. The core tenet of
the Islamic religion is submission, which is what the word, Islam
means, of all peoples and lands to Allah. Most moderate Muslims can't
or will not speak out against this mosque out of fear of being
retaliated against by those Muslims determine to wage Jihad, or holy
war, against us. Former Muslims willing to speak out against Islam
like Whalid Shoebat, Nonie Darwish, and Ayaan Hirsi Ali are quickly
dismissed by the liberal press as frauds and troublemakers. This
mosque is being built for one purpose and one purpose only. It is
going to serve as a symbol to the rest of the world that our enemies
have finally conquered us. And the worst part of it all is there are
many Americans quite willing to be led like docile sheep to the
Wednesday, August 18, 2010
First and foremost, I would like to say that my heart goes out to this person in our community who has been hurt by this ugly act. The person or people responsible for this crime are cowards. In fact, they are no better than the murderers whom slammed passenger jets into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon nine years ago on September 11th. Like those terrorists who killed thousands of people that day, their prime motivation for spraying the Swastika is hatred. I hope whoever did this is eventually caught and punished. Perhaps losing their freedom will motivate them to a change of heart.
Acts of anti-Semitism on a far worse scale are happening all over Europe at this time, with the desecration and burning of synagogues and assaults on Jews, both verbal and physical, in the streets of cities like Paris and Rome. These attacks are becoming more and more frequent, particularly in countries where there has been a large influx of Arab Muslim immigrants from North Africa and the Middle East over the past ten years. In Israel, an Arab leader known as the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheik Mohammad Hussein, recently declared that there is a coming religious war or Jihad, against the Jews. Meanwhile, the western news media apparently has it’s head buried in the sand, providing little or no coverage of this man’s threats, or of the growing crisis in Europe against the Jewish population there.
The main sentiment expressed in the aftermath of the Holocaust was “never again”. Prior to the rise of Nazi Germany, the ovens in Auschwitz had been heating up for over 1900 years. Unfortunately, it was the Christian church that instigated the rise of anti-Semitism. The Roman Catholic Church issued edicts in Italy permitting “the burning of Jews.” Another forbade the marriage between Catholics and Jews. Meanwhile, the Great Reformer, Martin Luther, regularly spewed hate-filled rants against the Jewish people. "Christ-killers" was the name he used for them, and accused the Jews of everything from poisoning the well waters in Europe, which Luther insisted was the real cause for the devastating outbreak of Bubonic Plague, to stealing Christian babies to be used in blood sacrifices. But perhaps the worst part of all this is that people actually believed what he was saying was the truth! After all, a great church father like Martin Luther could hardly be lying now could he? Fast forwarding to 2010, in addition to the local loser or losers who spray painted a symbol of hatred under the cover of darkness, we have political leaders like Iran’s Mahmoud Amhadinejad and terror groups, Hamas, and Hezbollah, calling for the extermination of the Jewish people and Israel.
As a believer and a follower of Christ, I know I am obligated to love what God loves. And He loves His Jewish people. Furthermore, contrary to the false teaching of Replacement Theology, which is rampant throughout the Christian Church worldwide, God has never rescinded his covenant with the Jewish people, or the divine contract with them concerning the land of Israel.
The Lord told Abraham,
"And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for asn everlasting, solemn pledge, to be a God to you and to your posterity after you." Genesis 17:7
And about the land,
“And I will give to you and to your posterity after you the land in which you are a stranger, all of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.” Genesis 17:8
During WWII, individuals like Corrie ten Boom, a woman with an unshakeable faith in Jesus Christ, and righteous Gentiles like Oscar Schindler, risked their own lives to save Jewish people from the Nazis. And then, there were others, many of them Christians, who attended church services faithfully every Sunday morning, yet stood idly by and silent as they watched the Nazis round up and arrest their Jewish neighbors on Monday morning. Christians of today must stand united with the Jewish people and Israel so that this will never happen again.

I can also never forget that while most of the world reached out to us that day in sympathy, there were people dancing in the streets of Cairo, Egypt and Ramallah, the hometown of the Palestinian Authority in the Gaza Strip, rejoicing at our terrible loss. In fact, the late Yassir Arafat was heard speaking on Arab radio praising as heroes the murderous cowards who slammed planes into buildings and killed our people. Yet, the venomous diatribe spewing out of the mouth of the wily desert jackal apparently did not convince our State Department to stop giving him even more money to kill Israelis, or school little Arab children in the ABC’s of murder and mayhem. But that’s another story for another day.
During this sad anniversary week, I am yet further reminded that we are the host country to a corrupt entity that readily panders to the sinister cause of devils like Arafat, as well as these above mentioned revelers, men and women with the same twisted mindset who cheered the wholesale slaughter of thousands of my fellow Americans on that clear September morning eight years ago today. In fact, there is more anti-American sentiment coming out of the United Nations than ever came out the PLO terrorist training camps in Syria and Lebanon, as well as the Gaza Strip.
According to Lars Hedegaard of the International Free Press Society, the 56- nation, Organization of the Islamic Conference is pressing their influence on the UN to pass an international law criminalizing criticism or blasphemy of religion.
“In 2008, the Organization of the Islamic Conference laid out a ten year plan for suppression of free speech and for the introduction of laws that would prevent criticism of religions and the reading of Islam,” reports Hedegaard.
While further researching this matter, I discovered that this 'resolution' only applies to the purported, ‘criticism or blasphemy’ of Islam. Although we are guaranteed the right to free speech in this country under our Constitution, in the way it was originally written by our Founding Fathers, I am concerned about this worldwide edict's possible effect on America. Contrary to our reigning Commander-In Chief’s revisionist spin on history last spring while schlepping around Turkey, at the beginning of Holy Week no less, we were and still are a nation founded under the Judeo-Christian influence of the Holy Bible, not the Koran.
Unfortunately,the Organization of Islamic Conference’s resolution has already been felt in Europe where a member of the Dutch Parliament, Geert Wilders, is currently on trial, accused of ‘inciting hate’ against the Islamic religion. In his film, Fitna Wilders exposed the radical agenda of Muslims which includes advocating acts of terrorism, anti-Semitism, violence against women and homosexuals, and the conquering of western civilization through worldwide Jihad, or Holy War.
In a related matter, the Organization of the Islamic Conference’s 10 year plan seemed to have neatly coincided with the outgoing Bush Administration’s decision to scrap the words, “War on Terror” and “Islamic terrorism” in favor of less discriminating phrases such as “insurgents” or “violent Southeast Asian youths.” The short term memory of our government leaders appalls me. Were many of us not helpless, heart-stricken witnesses to our fellow Americans given the equally fatal choices of jumping out of windows or burning to death in the twin towers? Were we not all eavesdroppers, listening in with a mixed sense of shock and disbelief to a young man’s conversation as he sat trapped on a doomed airliner, calling his mother to say goodbye? Did we not cringe with absolute horror at the sound of people screaming for help as they burned alive inside the wreckage of the Pentagon? What kind of sick scrabble game is our government playing here? Fifteen of the nineteen hijackers had ties to Saudi Arabia. Yet, shortly after this day of terrible tragedy, when every American citizen was grounded from air flight, the members of Osama Bin Ladin’s family staying here were given a free ride home compliments of the US State Department!
Everyone was upset when President Obama recently bowed before the King of Saudi Arabia, yet what about President Bush adhering to the Saudi ‘peace plan’ between Israel and the Palestinians? Saudi Arabia does not even recognize Israel’s right to exist!
America has always been a beacon of hope and democracy for the entire world.
Most of us descend from the “huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
Our ancestors brought with them their ethnic heritage and different religions, their hopes and their dreams, but the one vision they all seemed to share was to be a part of the great freedom experiment called America. Our great-grandparents and grandparents proudly placed their hands over their hearts and became legal American citizens. They learned how to speak English in order to become more productive members of and contribute positively to our society. They proudly learned to say our Pledge of Allegiance and to salute our flag. They served with honor and pride in our military. America and being an American became their whole way of life. And although many were not Christians, they were able to come here and worship in relative peace and security.
Unfortunately today, there is an element among the wave of new immigrants coming to American shores who are deliberately choosing not to assimilate into our culture. They feel offended if someone wants them to learn to speak English and refuse to say the Pledge of Allegiance or salute our flag. They are being allowed to live here in isolated enclaves unencumbered by our laws, and yet are able to impose their religious laws, often trampling the rights guaranteed to all Americans under the Constitution. Truth be told, they have not come here for any other reason but to wage, Jihad, or Holy War against us. Meanwhile, the liberal news media and career politicians hungry for creating new voting blocs look the other way, while those who stand up and speak the truth are dismissed as kooks and crazy conspiracy theorists, or labeled as racists.
In the field of public education, there are many people so througly tainted by political correctness that they seem to automatically succumb to these new immigrants' often ludicrous demands for recognition. In Minnesota, for example, these new immigrants were allowed to have Jell-O removed from public school lunch menus. A group of Muslims claimed to be offended by the dessert being included on the menu because of the pork base in the gelatin. Jews also abstain from eating pork for religious reasons and yet, I’ve never heard of any Jewish group freaking out over Jell-O being served in the school cafeteria.
The common sense answer to this would simply be don't eat the Jell-O! It seems more and more intellectual members of our society, especially those emerging from the liberal circles of Ivy League academia are throwing their common sense out the window along with their dignity and self-respect.
In another recent incident in Minnesota, a young man who suffered from epileptic seizures was doing post graduate field work in a high school. He brought with him to classes a specially trained dog to assist him. However, because Islam teaches that dogs are unclean animals, Muslims students attending the same school complained that they were offended by the dog's presence. These students also surrounded the young man and threatened to kill his dog! Naturally this distraught young man complained about the threats to his university. However, instead of investigating the incident, school officials just issued him the needed credits and sent him on his way. Furthermore, the high school did not even bother to reprimand the students who had threatened to kill this man’s guide dog! Their excuse was that "we must be tolerant towards the belief systems of those from other cultures.” The true meaning of the word, Tolerance, means to be fair and objective, not biased and cowardly! To allow the rights of those whose religion permits the practice of cruelty towards animals to triumph over the rights of a disabled man is indeed a terrible injustice. These school administrators are more worried about losing their standing in their communities, (not to mention their exorbitant salaries) then standing up and doing what's right.
How much more of this politically correct lunacy and general acquiescence on the part of liberal derelicts towards those that hate us are we Americans going to take? It’s high time for all of us, whether natural or foreign born, who love and believe in this country and cherish our God-given freedom to stand up and fight back! And the first order of the day is to remove the parasitic United Nations from our land. I've heard Tehran and Pyongyang have vacancies.
I think I would have more respect for someone like Senator Barack Obama if he came right out and declared himself an atheist who believes in nothing, as opposed to his questionable stance as a self-proclaimed, “committed Christian.”
It seems to me that he is making a mockery of the Christian faith with his deliberate pandering to pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood, not to mention his voting twice against the Infants Born Alive Act.
Initially sponsored by Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pennsylvania) the Born Alive Infants Act which would protect infants that survive abortion and guarantee them medical treatment.
Senator Obama cares only about upholding “a woman’s right to choose” and protecting the tenets of Roe vs. Wade. He even refused to answer the simple question about when life begins in the womb. When asked this at the recent Saddleback Forum, Senator Obama’s smug response was, “It’s above my pay grade.” What exactly does that mean? Any fifth grader could tell him that life begins when a sperm of a man fertilizes the egg of a woman. It’s called Conception.
If the vast majority of American voters think that the economy, the domestic energy crisis, and ending the war in the Middle East are more important issues than the sanctity of human life, than we are not a land of freedom and democracy for all people.
The taking of human life through abortion is a heinous act. In a case of rape or incest, why should the victim be violated twice, first by the rapist and then by the abortionist? What about the rights of the unborn child? Aren’t they as much of a victim as the violated woman? I am not trying to judge anyone. I just believe that abortion is never the right choice.
Furthermore, don’t look at the booming abortion industry to be concerned about a woman’s mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. They could care less about the suffering of the victims of abortion. All they care about is the big money they are making by keeping the abortion mills operating at full steam in America. And unfortunately, Senator Obama has promised to protect this flourishing enterprise of death at all costs.
“You’ve heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true. This is all, these are all fabrications that have been put out there in order to discourage people from meeting what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation and that is we look out for one another, that I am my brother’s keeper, that I am my sister’s keeper. And in the wealthiest nation on the earth right now, we are neglecting to live up to that call.” President Barack Obama words to members of the “40 Days For Health Reform” religious coalition.
“You will always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.”
To The Editor:
Contrary to President Obama’s own words, the new healthcare reform bill does include provisions for federally subsidized abortions. According to Fact Check.org., a nonpartisan website run by the staff at the University of Pennsylvania, “It’s true that the House bill would allow abortions to be covered by a federal plan and by a federally subsidized private plan.”
Why is our president lying to us? Does his apparent denial of the truth stem from his “core ethical and moral obligation” to decrease the surplus population by encouraging lower income and poor families to choose government-regulated healthcare plans which include abortion?
Our president has been quick to defend the “reproductive rights” of women, yet what about the rights of a defenseless unborn female? In America today, depending on what state you reside in, abortion is available all the way up to the ninth month of pregnancy. New Jersey ranks #4 on the list of the top ten states which perform the most abortions.
Does this healthcare bill include counseling services for frightened women facing an unplanned pregnancy which would encourage placing the child up for adoption? Where in this 1,000+ page healthcare reform bill does it offer coverage of individual/marital/ and or group counseling so that if the situation can be worked out, the mother could decide to keep her precious baby? What about providing classes which would educate members about birth control and family planning? Furthermore, government healthcare plans could provide members with a financial incentive for choosing to take individual responsibility and participating in birth control and/or family planning classes.
Jesus said, “You will always have the poor with you.” This is the truth, even in America, which Obama recently deemed, “the most wealthiest nation on earth.” Our leader further stated the truth when he said that we have neglected to live up to that call to “look out for one another.”
This wealthiest nation on earth has killed over forty million unborn babies since 1973 when abortion was legalized in America. We’ve murdered more children than were ever aborted in back alleys and we are still actively encouraging infanticide to continue unchecked across this nation, especially in more recent years due to the harvesting of stem cells from aborted babies for scientific and medical research.
It is my personal opinion that infant stem cell research will ultimately fail because mankind cannot play God. God will never justify the willful and deliberate killing of innocent unborn humans so that their stem cells can be sacrificed to medical research involving humans already born. Sorry, He just doesn’t work that way.
Furthermore, it seems to me that if President Obama really believes in what he said, that he is “his sister’s keeper”, if he really cares about the devastating physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual impact abortion has on women, than he would have the guts to stand up and outlaw this most evil act pervading our nation once and for all.
Attention all you hard working American tax payers out there. Are you aware that over $350 million dollars of your hard-earned money is being sent to subsidize the largest provider of abortion in the world?
Did you further know that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, an avowed supporter of eugenics, the pseudo-science of breeding superior human beings, was a great admirer of Adolf Hitler? Viciously anti-Semitic, she praised the dictator’s racial policies of eugenics. In her publication, “Birth Control Review” she advocated limiting the racial quotas of Slavic, Hebrew, and Latin immigrants in America because of their perceived “lower intelligence”. With a man named Henry Pratt Fairchild, she began a birth control organization that later became Planned Parenthood. By the way, Fairchild was also strongly anti-Semitic and the author of “The Melting Pot Mistake” in which he blamed the Jews for diluting “the true American stock”. He audaciously blamed anti-Semitism in Europe and the Holocaust on the Jews!
In 1926, Margaret Sanger was a guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, New Jersey. In the 1930’s, she and another colleague, Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, collaborated on what came to be known as, “The Negro Project”. Their scheme involved targeting poor blacks living in the South with Birth Control Federation of America “healthcare clinics”.
Expressing her approval of their project, Sanger wrote to Gamble: “We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…” And to his suggestion they hire both a black physician and black minister to allay suspicions of their actual intentions, she further stated, “the minister is the man who can straighten that idea out if it (extermination of their race) ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
Margaret Sanger garnered the support of her victims by convincing them that she was merely “concerned about their health care and well-being“ as well as the economic advancement of the black community. In reality, she and her partner Gamble were determine to implement their nefarious plan to sterilize blacks and therefore reduce the number of black children born in the South.
A recent investigative news report on Life Site news website revealed a Planned Parenthood center in Oklahoma actually accepting a donation over the telephone from an “undercover donor” who asked that his donation be used specifically to “abort black babies.” To which the Tulsa PP employee glibly replied, “We can definitely designate it for an African American.”
So, where is the outrage from prominent African-American leaders in Congress and in the White House? Why the deafening silence from members of groups like the Congressional Black Caucus and firebrand individuals like Reverend Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? Is this an indication of their apparent ignorance, or rather indifference, to what is going on?
History has a way of repeating itself.
November of 2008, the month that Barack Hussein Obama was elected as President of the United States, marked the seventieth anniversary of Kristallnacht, or Night of Falling Glass, when the racial policies of Adolf Hitler were brutally unleashed across Nazi Germany. Jews were rounded up and killed, their homes, businesses, and synagogues were smashed and burned to the ground. Some 30,000 Jews were taken to concentration camps, thus marking the beginning of the Holocaust.
Adolf Hitler believed that he was a superior human being. His personal mission was to rid the world of those he deemed to be inferior and undesirable, namely Jews, Gypsies, Slavs, the elderly, children, infants, and anyone who was physically or mentally disabled.
President Obama, like Hitler and Margaret Sanger, also believes he is a superior person. His Harvard-engineered arrogance towards the fed up average American tax payer was quite evident in his infamous, “guns and religion” speech before an audience of like-minded elitists in San Francisco. Furthermore, Obama has made it his personal mission to become the premier champion of abortion rights in America. This is the same man who, while as a member of the Illinois senate, voted several times against the Born Alive Infants Act and again while as a member of the Senate in Washington DC. This act would allow a baby which survived an abortion to receive medical treatment. It seems certain to me that it is the primary goal of this president, as well as his colleagues, Senator Harry Reid, and House Speaker Senator Nancy Pelosi, to implement a devastating abortion mandate on our nation, one very similar to the genocidal policies of Nazi Germany. The only real difference between these people and the Nazis is that the latter was absolutely clear about their intentions.
In addition to this, former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, senior fellow and national spokesman for the American Civil Rights Union, believes that the impending passage of the Freedom of Choice Act, which President Obama declared he would sign into law, ( while speaking before the Planned Parenthood Action Fund in July 2007) and which will wipe out any and all restrictions on abortion in America, as well as compel taxpayer funding of abortion through state and federal welfare programs, federal employee insurance plans, and in military hospitals, and furthermore, force faith-based hospitals and healthcare facilities to perform abortions, will finally bring Sanger’s warped vision and ideological “Final Solution” to it’s gruesome completion.
“If you begin to look at the connection between slavery, Darwin, eugenics, and abortion you begin to appreciate the fact that this is the logical step in the final chapter of this march towards genocide…” he said. “She (Margaret Sanger) regarded African Americans as being inferior. And if you don’t study the history of slavery and Darwinian theory, eugenics and abortion, then you’re doing a disservice to the stain that all of these developments had on American culture.”
Evil triumphs when good people do nothing.
Knesset Member Dr. Michael Ben-Ari
At his recent speech at the University of Cairo, President Obama declared, “Denying the Holocaust and threatening Israel with destruction is wrong.” He then went on to say that “On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people have suffered in pursuit of a homeland and have suffered for sixty years of displacement.” He accused Israel of being responsible for the humiliation of Arabs and insisted that Israel must stop building communities on their own land and accept a Palestinian State. As we have witnessed in the past, Israel is once again under pressure from the world community to grant land concessions without an equal demand for reciprocity from the Palestinians, especially the call for accountable and responsible leadership, but much more importantly, the complete renouncement of terrorism and the recognition of Israel’s right to existence.
In 1947, the UN partitioned the land called Palestine, a name given to the region by the Romans, which translates as “land of the Philistines.” There was never a country formally recognized in the world as Palestine. Before the UN partition in 1947, the region was controlled by Great Britain. The majority of inhabitants were Jews, Christians and Muslims. The Jews accepted their portion of the divided land and in 1948, Israel, the Jewish State, was born. The birth of modern day Israel was the most significant piece of Biblical prophecy fulfilled since the coming of the Messiah Yeshua.
Meanwhile, the Arabs rejected their half of the partitioned land, and not long after Israel was declared a nation, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria attacked them. Like David vs. Goliath, tiny Israel emerged victorious against the giant of combined Arab armies. The Arabs attacked Israel again in the 1967 Six Day War and in 1973 during Yom Kippur, or The Feast of Atonement to destroy Israel and her people through heinous acts of guerilla warfare and terrorism. It was not until November, 1977 when one Arab leader, the late Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, decided to extend the olive branch to then Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and made his historic trip across the border to Israel. For the first time, people in this troubled region of the world began to hold cautious hope that one day, the descendants of Abraham, Ishmael, and Isaac might actually live side by side in peaceful co-existence. Although Israel and Egypt have maintained a tentative acknowledgement of each other, their truce did not come without a price. President Anwar Sadat was assassinated in 1981 by members of an Islamic extremist group known as the Muslim Brotherhood.
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas recently declared once again that he will never accept Israel’s right to exist. Furthermore, the PA, as well as Hamas, have never changed their charters calling for the destruction of Israel.
President Obama seems more concerned with demanding that Israel stop building in Judea and Samaria and to give up more land to their enemies while refusing to deal with the issue of terrorism. He won’t even say the word. His silence on this issue may definitely return to haunt him some day. For it is the very issue of terrorism, nuclear or otherwise, and those in the Middle East who advocate and practice it that remains at the very heart of the problem.

In the parable, the man who is a dealer of fine and precious pearls is Jesus Himself. He was not just browsing, He was a person who really understood what it means to find that one single pearl of great price...so He gave all of what He had just to purchase this rare jewel. Could I do that? Could I come across a pearl so rare and so precious that I would give up everything I have just to own it? This is the love of Jesus.
What is the meaning of "a single pearl of great price?" In a word, suffering. According to Bible teacher Derek Prince:
"It is interesting that all the gateways to the New Jerusalem are made of pearls. That tells us there is no way into the New Jerusalem except the way of suffering. There is no other gateway."
Derek further wrote, "As I understand it, a pearl is caused by some kind of irritation in the oyster. It is really the product of something gone wrong inside the oyster."
In the processing of pearls for the market, it first has to be brought out of the depths of the sea and carefully removed from within the oyster and later polished to enhance it's natural gleaming beauty.
Imagine Jesus holding that one single pearl of great price in his nail pierced palm, looking down at it with His great love, and saying, "It was for you that I paid that price. I gave all I had." This is the love of Jesus. Extravagant Love.

That's why it really shocked me when I found out she was suffering from rectal cancer. Farrah had cancer? I guess it really is the truth that cancer does not discriminate when it comes to victims.
to his untimely passing,
I am choosing to honor the memory
May she rest in peace.

Contrary to world condemnation, Israel had every right to board the
"terrortilla". We Americans have no idea what it is like to live
under the constant threat of annihilation.
Furthermore, tiny Israel has one of the highest standards of living in
the Near East. So maybe it was partially built on the donations of
wealthy Jews in the West. So what? Last year, Obama issued a silent
boycott against selling US arms to Israel, while selling millions of
dollars worth of military hardware to the hostile Arab nations
surrounding her. The Pavlov canines in the American news media who
slobber regularly at Obama's feet conveniently failed to report on
this boycott. Only recently, Obama gave away 400 million dollars to PA
Chairman Mahmoud Abbas for his “cause.” Meanwhile, illiterate Arab
children still run and play in raw sewage in the streets of Ramallah,
while their teen-aged brothers and sisters are being groomed to become
"glorious suicide bombers."
Jesus said, “You will know a tree by it’s fruits.”
Israel leads the world, even surpassing the United States, in science,
technology, and medicine.
Many US Fortune 500 companies in these fields have offices in Tel Aviv
And, unlike the belligerent Arab regimes which surround Israel and
long to see it’s demise, Israel does not have an integration problem.
Unlike the recent racial unrest weve witnessed in the central Asian
country of Kyrgyrstan, and despite the outrageous lies and smear
campaign being conducted by her detractors in the biased world news
media, Israel does a very good job accomodating it’s Arab
citizens.They are guaranteed the right to a good education, to
employment, to worship unhindered, and the right to vote in the
political elections, the same as their Jewish neighbors. Eleven
members of the Israeli Knesset are Arabs. Furthermore, Druze Arabs,
(those of primarily Syrian and Lebanese descent) regularly serve in
the Israeli Defense Force.

First of all, there is no such country called Palestine, so how can the Jews "get out of it?" Palestine is a region of the Near East. It's name comes from the Romans, after they expelled the Jews from Jerusalem in 70A.D. The name Palestine, is derived from the similar word, Palestina, and translates to mean, "land of the Philistine."
Second, the area of land encompassed within the modern day nation of Israel is relatively small compared to the original dimensions of land bequeathed to the Jewish people by Jehovah God in the Holy Bible. Since 1948, the enemies of Israel have been slowly and tenaciously surrounding the ancient Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria, an area of the world that is often referred to in the news media as "the occupied West Bank" of the Jordan River.
God has never forsaken His eternal land covenant with the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. To explain the meaning of this covenant relationship more simply, imagine for a moment that you are a parent of a teen-aged son or daughter who has reached the age to drive a car. You purchase the car for your son or daughter and put the title in their name. You clearly inform your child that the car is theirs to own, however, if he or she is stopped for speeding or some other traffic offense, you as the parent, have the right to take the car away from them. So, your kid is out there joy-riding one day and is pulled over by the police. He or she gets a ticket for speeding or reckless driving or both, and so you take the car away from them. However, because the car is in their name, your child is still the rightful owner.
Israel committed spiritual adultery against God many times by turning their backs on Him to bow down before pagan idols and fornicate with heathen cultures. As a result, they no longer had the protection God provided them from their enemies. God allowed this to happen because unlike the other creatures with whom we share the earth, He gave human beings a free will. However, when Israel repented for her sins against Him, the Lord was full of compassion and mercy for His beloved children. And despite the fact that they would keep rebelling against Him, God loves the Jewish people and His eternal covenant with them stands to this present day.

It’s a good day at Sunrise Rock. At least for now. The Supreme Court recently decided in favor of The American Legion, The Veterans of Foreign Wars, and other veteran service organizations in a court battle with the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU was demanding that a memorial cross originally planted by WWI vets atop an outcropping of rock in the Mojave Desert Preserve be removed and destroyed.
Writing the lead opinion in the 5-4 decision, Justice Anthony M. Kennedy compared the Mojave Cross to a highway memorial to a fallen state trooper, and pointed out that such displays, “need not be taken as a statement of governmental support for sectarian beliefs.”
He further wrote, “The Constitution does not oblige government to avoid any public knowledge of religion’s role in society. Rather, it leaves room to accommodate divergent values within a constitutionally permissible framework.”
The controversy over the Mojave Cross Memorial, which has stood on Sunrise Rock in the Mojave Desert Preserve since 1934, is yet another vain attempt by the American Civil Liberties Union to remove any and all symbols and associations of Christianity from America.
The plaintiff in this case, a former National Park Service Assistant Supervisor named Frank Buono, claimed that the sight of the cross “offended him.” Strangely enough, this man was employed at the Mojave Desert Preserve at the time former President Clinton incorporated the memorial into the Preserve in 1994. It was only after Buono retired and moved to Oregon-over 1,000 miles from the Mojave Desert- that he decided, with obvious influence from the ACLU, to raise a stink about the cross.
The ACLU’s argument is that the cross memorial is in violation of the Establishment Clause, or “separation of church and state.“ However, there is no such ‘clause’ written in our Constitution.
. The Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law regarding the establishment of religion…” which, simply put, means that the creation of a state-mandated national church is forbidden. “…Or, prohibit the free exercise there of.” which means that the veterans have every right to keep the monument standing in memory of their fallen comrades up on Sunrise Rock! Furthermore, the much abused ACLU mantra of “separation of church and state” was actually lifted from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson in 1802 to the Danbury Baptist Association:
“… I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State.”
The Supreme Court’s decision in the case of the Mojave Cross is a great victory, not only for our brave veterans, who have fought to preserve our precious freedom, but for all Americans, who cherish their right to worship unhindered, and the right to freely express their faith.
According to an article in Arutz Sheva, His Honor, in another Op-Ed piece written last summer, admits that he has gradually "fallen out of love" with the Anointed One, first with the current leader's strident effort to foist his recently passed socialism-through-healthcare edict on the American people, and now, Obama's deliberate snub of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on the latter's recent visit to Washington. (I'm glad he did not get a chance to snub Prime Minister Netanyahu a second time. Bibi's no fool. He's already got Obama pegged.)
Anyway,what right does our government have to tell Israel to stop building in their nation's capital? To add insult to injury, Obama refers to the city of Jerusalem as a "settlement." Settlement? Hardly so, Mr. President. The eternal city of the Jewish people is where Zion rests his head!
Furthermore, Obama blaming Israel's defiance for refusing to stop building in Jerusalem as the majoring stumbling block in his adminstration's efforts to revitalize the peace process is as false as it is embarrassing. The other major player in this conflict, the Palestinian Authority, headed by Arafat acolyte Mahmoud Abbas, does not recognize Israel's right to exist! The PA which used to be known more infamously as the Palestinian Liberation Organization, has never changed, or BEEN ADVISED TO CHANGE their organization's (and I use that word lightly) charter calling for Israel's destruction. The real beef in all of this lies in the fact that the enemies of Israel, who are already have the lands of Judea and Samaria surrounded, have now set their sights on the proverbial Jewel In The Crown, the City of Jerusalem. And Obama, whom I personally believe is a Muslim, is determine to let them have it!
Embolden by his tacit support and most of the Arab-Muslim World, as well as the absurd claim attributed to Iranian mad dog dictator Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, that the creation of a side-by-side Palestinian State with the eastern sector of Jerusalem as it's capital will somehow cancel out the very real threat to Israel and the entire world coming from a nuclear Iran, the enemies of the Jewish people are once again forcing the issue of dividing the city of Jerusalem on to the world stage, again using their people as pawns to gain support and sympathy, but not for the creation of a Palestinian State. The rabid haters of the Jewish people and the traitors (Hello, Rahm Emmanuel, are you listening?) know very well that once this happens, Israel will be no more.
Since becoming a nation of the world in 1948, Israel has been America's most loyal friend and supporter in the Middle East.
"Well, it's supported by wealthy Jews here in the States", my critics claim.
"Well, so what? Wealthy Jews in America have just as much of a stake in their ancestral homeland as the Jews currently living in Judea and Samaria."
"Well, the US Government sells Israel all their weapons," they further claim.
" That's also true. But did you know that since Obama took office there has been an arms embargo against Israel? Meanwhile, the closet Muslim has conducted numerous deals for military arms with the Arab nations surrounding Israel. I guess oil talks, and bull-S**t walks!"
Meanwhile, Obama would rather bow before the King of Saudi Arabia, a sovereign whose nation not only has one of the most vile records of human right abuses in the world, but who rejects Israel's legitimacy as a nation. (So why was this guy determine to play a role in the now brain-dead "road map to peace?")
What other President of the United States has ever bowed before the sovereign of another nation? Obama is often compared to former President Jimmy Carter (their big toothy grins are practically identical) and yet, I have to honestly say not even the former peanut farmer from Plains ever bowed before another world leader!
This is America. Our founders disclaimed allegiance to the despotic King George III of England in order to establish themselves as a free and independent nation. (Not a colonial power as B. Hussein Obama so gallantly claims as he prances through Europe apologizing for America's perceived arrogance)...socialists living in glass houses should not throw stones...
The Greatest Generation of WWII stormed the beaches of Normandy to liberate Europe from the evil chokehold of Nazi Germany, and raised Old Glory on Iwo Jima as a symbol to those held captive in the Japanese-occupied lands of the Pacific that the hour of their deliverance was upon them.
While our Commander-In-Chief is required to show respect and courtesy to the presidents and prime ministers and sovereigns of other lands, as the LEADER of the FREE WORLD, an American President NEVER bends and scrapes before anyone!
And now Obama seems determine to make Israel into an international pariah, especially in the wake of the recent Gaza flotilla fiasco.
The Pharaoh of ancient Egypt tried to mess with God's Chosen People and like him, it will be Obama's own pride and arrogance in the sight of Jehovah which will ultimately be his undoing.
...and I will gain honor and glory over Pharaoh and all his hosts and the Egyptians shall know I AM THE LORD." Exodus 14:4
According to Rabbi Menachem Kohen, author of the book, "Prophecies for the Era of Muslim Terror: A Torah Perspective on World Events" these dramatic changes occured when the Jews were forced from their ancestral homeland. Rabbi Kohen claims that the land, "suffered an unprecedented and inexplicable drought" that lasted from the first century until the twentieth-an amazing stretch of 1800 years-which began shortly after the expulsion of the Jews from the land given to them by Jehovah God in his eternal covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
This is a significant fufillment of Biblical prophecy found in the Book of Deuteronomy ("Second Law-Giving") Chapter 28: 23-24:
"And thy Heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron. The Lord shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from Heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed."
In 2009, a team of geologists from the University of Wisconsin traveled to Israel to study the chemical composition of individual rings that formed stalgamite growing up from the floor of Soreq Cave near Jerusalem between 200 B.C. and 1100 A.D. The team concluded that the climate of the eastern Meditterranean area was indeed drier between 100 and 700 A.D., with a drastic shortage of rainfall around 100 and 400 A.D. thus marking the period of decline of both Roman and Byzantine forces in the region.
Researchers from Israel's Geological Society and Hebrew University in Jerusalem both participated in this fascinating lesson from history. The study was featured in the science journal, Quaternary Research and was actually in conjunction with another study about the effects of global warming.
The Jewish people entered into the land of Canaan, described in the Bible as a land "flowing with milk and honey." At the time when Moses' successor, Joshua, crossed over the Jordan River, the landscape of Israel was rich and green pasture, ideal for grazing animals, thus "milk" and for raising crops and bee-keeping, "honey." After the Jews were dispersed from their land by the Romans, who then renamed the region of land, which encompassed ancient Judea and Samaria, "Palestina" which translates to "land of Phillistines" it hardly ever rained in Israel. It became a dry and arid desert, inspiring the famous American writer Mark Twain, who traveled to the region to describe the region of Palestine as "a barren and sparsely populated wasteland."
A survey of weather charts in Israel, beginning in the early ninteenth century up through the sixth decade of the twentieth century confirms a major increase of rain with the return of the Jewish people to their ancestral home. Amazingly, the weather charts reveal that the heaviest amounts of rainfall during this 150 year period coincides with two of the most significant dates in the history of Israel. One was the year 1948, when a reborn Israel took her place among the nations of the world. The second occured in the year 1967, marking Israel's spectacular victory in the Six Day War. For the first time in over two thousand years, the Jewish people were once again in control of their eternal capital, the city of Jerusalem.
