    Kevin Freeman makes the case for the Sept 2008 electronic run on the bank being a pre-planned financial terrorist plot by world Islamists. Ghadaffi in a public speech not long before the election referred to the Muslim world getting Obama elected through their “lawful donations”. We do know that Obama’s campaign deactivated the verification process for accepting credit donations (much like they disabled the verification process for eligibility...) but lawful donations could also include the run on the bank.

    Oops. Gotta run.

    What’s so difficult about that - and I think it’s the result of deliberate disinformation campaigns by the regime if not others - is that we have very little way to verify which reported “facts” are true. Technology allows so much to be fabricated and we also know that both the leftist and “conservative” media doesn’t report what it doesn’t want us to know. So the people who do report those things are viewed as “nuts” while there’s often very little that can be done to prove the evidence they cite.

    The end result is agnosticism. We can’t know anything because we can’t believe anybody. That’s the purpose for the disinformation.

    I believe that extends to sites that pretend to be satire sites but don’t label themselves as such. There’s one that’s been linked to here at FR several times - always making claims that “conservatives” might want to be true. And because it poses as a genuine news site and the “satire” is so badly-done that you can’t tell it’s satire, people don’t know it’s satire. I have no idea if this is the deliberate intention of the site or if the writers there are just so stupid that they don’t know how to write decent satire, but the end effect is that no matter what report you look at you have to ask if it’s somebody lying under the guise of “satire”.

    It’s like every day is April Fool’s Day, and you have to wonder if any report is either disinformation or an attempt to trick you, with somebody laughing and saying “April Fools!” if you believe anything.

    All this, together with the post-modernism of the day, makes it very hard for a normal person (one who doesn’t spend their whole life researching and analyzing these things - which makes them seem like “sheeple”) to be anything but agnostic. We can’t know anything. And with no clear trumpet sound nobody will go to battle. That’s the whole point of the disinformation campaigns. Anonymous posting makes it very difficult to know who is a minister of disinformation.

  • American Soldiers Singing "Days of Elijah"

    butterdezillion to the_Watchman

    Even after Elijah’s victory over the prophets of Baal, where the Lord showed His power, the enormity of the task and the obstacles were overwhelming. Once the adrenaline was gone, Elijah again felt alone and hopeless. God didn’t leave him at the point of hopelessness though. He reminded him that He had preserved a remnant.

    Yes, these are the days of Elijah. So much that is Biblical is everyday reality to be seen by all with eyes to see. It’s good to be reminded that these challenges have faced God’s people all through time, and just like the Biblical days, God is here with us and will see us through.

    On the radio today I heard Steven Curtis Chapman singing a song I’d never heard before, saying that even though it feels like the end, our story is still at the beginning, and we need to watch the great unraveling of the story that God is going to do, and be amazed.

    The great stories in the Bible almost all came in times of great darkness. It means it shines all the brighter when God intervenes.

    I was asking myself how a person could write a song that would convey the darkness of these times and still have the hope of the Lord in the middle of it.

    I had never heard “Days of Elijah”. I want to look more closely at the lyrics; seems like they draw hope for the future from the remembrance of the past, which is what I keep going back to in my own mind and heart.

    Yes, it seemed to me at the time that he didn’t support the Iranians who protested in support of freedom because Iran was already under sharia - which (worldwide sharia) is part of the “Muslim agenda” that the Egyptian ambassador in 2010 said Obama had privately said he would get actively involved in pushing once he got Obamacare passed. Since they were already sharia as Obama had promised the Muslim world he would work toward, Iran didn’t need any “fixing”, in Obama’s eyes. It was just the Mideast regimes that had been fighting Islamist terrorists that he had to take out. That’s why our own regime agitated for “Arab Spring”. And IIRC those who were pushing that stated outright that there would also be an “American Spring” eventually...

    What kind of pathetic intel did we have, that couldn’t tell these people were aligned with Al Qaeda?

    Maybe I’m just ignorant and my ignorance makes me angry, but it seems to me that a person gets more scrutiny for simply trying to buy a package of Sudafed than it takes to get military-grade weapons and supporting airstrikes from this regime, OR to be given the keys to the White House.

    Seems to me that a little kid’s lemonade stand gets more scrutiny than the redistribution of guns to cartels that are invading our border and manpads to terrorists who have sworn to drown us in our own blood.

    My son asked me this morning if I had ever thought of doing something on the computer that’s totally unrelated to evil things. I said somebody has to fight evil. Trouble is, I don’t know if simply knowing about it and talking about it really accomplishes anything either. How did we ever get to this crazy, upside-down world that I just described?

    Boots on the ground in Benghazi to process the illegal, undeclared war against Ghadaffi, who was at the time one of our best providers of intelligence regarding Islamist terrorists and who correctly warned us that Obama was siding with people aligned with Al Qaeda?

    So Obama said all along that he wouldn’t put Americans in harm’s way in order to fight his illegal Libya war, but instead he put unarmed diplomats in Benghazi to try to keep Ghadaffi from massacring the side that Obama single-handedly chose to root for (the terrorists who then killed our diplomat and the brave men who came to defend him)?

    Seems like knowing the affiliation of the people we arm is a slightly-important thing. If we didn’t know their affiliations, why didn’t we know? If we knew their affiliations, why did we support them against an ally in the war on terror?

    This goes to the enemy combatant in our White House. This Libyan war was his baby. He needs to answer for it.

    But Obama desperately wanted to say that our ousting of Ghadaffi was successful and everything was peaches and cream. Wasn’t his campaign slogan something about Bin Laden dead and GM alive?

    Seems like ultimately we may have been there to run arms to terrorists, but that’s not the subject of this hearing. In the meantime, the question if our reason for being there was above-board is why were we there BEFORE it was secure

    Of course, that gets back to the guffawing that was done in Iraq when “insurgents” were able to get weapons before we were able to secure them. Maybe it comes down to the idea that it was stupid for us to interfere in Libya’s own civil war, when the regime in power at the time was currently a very good ally against terrorism and those seeking to oust him were largely terrorists themselves... But then it’s the “Obama Doctrine” for the US to oust allies in fighting terrorism, in favor of Muslim extremist terrorists. We’ve done it in Egypt, Afghanistan, and Libya, and Obama’s working on doing it in Syria too...

    Ultimately this does come down to “politics” - if “politics” means the Obama Doctrine of supporting Muslim terrorists and shafting everybody else. But that’s a subject for a different hearing.

    Which cartels were involved? Holder was arming the Sinoloans, IIRC, so if these were family members of the rival cartel, then this is a hit-job by a mafia personally armed by Eric Holder.

    What people need to realize regarding Obama getting into the White House: Yes, there are idiot voters who only want their Obama-phone. But there was something far more sinister at work, which is why in our guts we all know things are bad, bad, bad right now. Obama was put into the White House by threats - threats to the media, threats to Hillary, and I am confident that there were also threats to McCain, Bush, judges including at least Chief Justice John Roberts, bureaucrats who then had to forge documents, etc.

    The conservative media in particular was neutered through threats of FCC annihilation if they reported on Obama’s eligibility problem or his Muslim leanings (both items were critical to his having enough popularity to pull off the “election” with plenty of illegal world-Muslim donations to buy off already-corrupt dem election officials in critical places like Philly, etc...).

    We’ve seen, time and time again, that reporters who have wanted to publish stories which told the truth to the American public were told they could NOT, by the corrupt heads of the liberal press (where is Travis’ graphic showing the incestuous relationships between this thug regime and the thug liberal media?). And the “conservative media” wouldn’t report on anything either, because they had been told they would be annihilated if they did.

    The reporters on the ground all know this stuff. Period. They knew LONG AGO that 2008 was a coup, and they kidded themselves that it wouldn’t come down to Islamist and cartel thugs beheading people at will in this nation, the regime deliberately letting Ebola into the country along with the cartels, terrorists, etc - and there is no way they would be giving these warnings about an Ebola epidemic if the disease wasn’t already airborne; there is also no way they would let it into the country if Obama and his thugs didn’t have an effective antidote to it, which they will NOT be giving to us “commoners”)

    People need to wake up and smell the coffee - figure out that this was a PLANNED break-in, with all the alarms disabled in order to make it possible for them to take over the country, infiltrate every position of power, and destroy it from within like gangrene that kills its host victim.

    One of the first strategies of this lawless regime was to illegally fire any inspectors general who wouldn’t do what “the master” told them to do. Gerald Walpin is one example among about 5 who were fired right away, to clear the way for the lawlessness that would ensue once a stooge was put in as watchdog (which was the same thing they did with Obama’s passport showing him a foreigner; the “stooge” who oversaw the sanitizing of Obama’s passport file was..... JOHN BRENNAN. He did so well at that corrupt stooge job that Obama put him in as Stooge-in-Chief, National Security Advisor.) When Congress allowed the regime to fire Gerald Walpin (and the others like him) we should have all known the country was over. That set the stage for everything that was to come. It was a PLANNED break-in and they made sure that all the security alarms were disabled before they did the dirty they had been planning all along, since before Obama was illegally placed in the White House as a foreign enemy combatant.

    Exactly. And as long as society accepts post-modern thinking - the idea that there is no REAL truth or morality and all we have is what we construct in our own minds - nobody can say that a criminal’s “morality” is any less valid than the ethics code the majority has invented.

    IOW, the anti-God leftistshumanists in academia, media, etc have given “human” sanction to the way criminals want to act anyway.

    Everywhere you look outside the Word of God, the philosophy of death reigns supreme. Nothing is real, nothing is sacred. There is no justice, there’s just us. We are our own little gods, and we determine what is true for us. Might makes right. Etc.

    The choice between the demons of god and man on the one hand, and the real God of the Bible on the other hand, is in reality a choice between life and death. ISIS or Mother Theresa - because what created ISIS was demons and what created Mother Theresa was Jesus.

    Right now the world needs to hear what the Lord told Israel so many years ago: “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live...”

    People need to look closely at ISIS and realize that this is ultimately what death means. To be dead even when you’re alive. And people need to see that the choice is critical for every person right now. The door will soon be closed if darkness wins today.

    I’ve found it’s hard to deal with people who don’t seem to “get it” regarding where the country and world are at right now.

    I do realize that sometimes people need a break. It’s why there were movies even during the Great Depression.

    I think I’m just feeling such an urgency about the damage that’s spiraling out of control, while the checks and balances refuse to do anything about it - that other talk is sort of like somebody bleeding out waiting for the doctor to finish telling a joke before bothering to apply a tourniquet.

    It’s a cult - controlling all input that a follower is allowed to have in his/her life and subjecting the body to subversive physical conditions similar to what is used for interrogation tactics (sleep and food cycles, hypnotizing music, etc).

    A while back there was video of a Muslim woman in Israel waiting for her son to be done with the free care he was given in a Jewish hospital. She explained that human life on earth basically means nothing to them. They expect to die, they want to die for Allah. There is no concept of the sanctity of human life.

    Makes me think about the difference between that and Christianity. Christians are to be LIVING sacrifices - serving the world through their life, to illustrate and be a conduit for the love of the God who not only said, “You shall not murder” but who also lived and died to pay the just punishment for human sin. God DOES care about human lives in the here and now. Death DOES matter to Him. The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy, but the God of the Bible comes that we might have abundant life - complete with all the fruit of real life (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control...)

    I think that disbelief in the true sanctity of human life is probably what connects leftists to Islam in spite of their differences over feminism, homosexuality, abortion, etc. When people become animals in their beliefs, they will very soon thereafter become animals in their behaviors too.

    I hate to say it but certain dumbed-down demographics in the US - the kind most likely to end up in jail - illustrate the same violent “bent”.

    If there was going to be an argument that would convince me of human evolution, it would be the animalistic behavior of certain demographics when the morality of Christianity is absent from their society. It’s like they’ve devolved from human into animals.

    In the Islamic world it may be exacerbated by the inbreeding but the catalyst, I truly believe, is a demonic religion. Hmm. Maybe that’s the case for other groups too.

    It’s the method the Islamists use though. Get the camel’s nose into the tent, and from there....

    The idea of letting civil courts use a “culture’s” own rules (religious rules) is sort of like trying Jim Jones according to the rules of his cult. In the end treating each culture as if they are a law unto themselves logically leads to the idea that if Pakistani Muslims rape little girls, then who are we to say that’s wrong?

    The “multi-culturalism” crap - that all cultures have equally-moral rules - is incompatible with the very concept of the rule of law. Who can ever make laws, if a culture with the opposite view of what is “right and wrong” is just as legally/morally valid as the current laws on the books?

    This post-modern garbage defies reason and logic, and those who benefit the most from it are Muslims and anarchists.

    What’s happened to Britain and to a lot of other places in Europe - and is happening in America too - is post-modernism. The society is losing its brain and hearts, and going from post-Christianity on to post-modernism, and that is the suicide of civilization.

    Our Muslim was elected to the White House because he made threats to the media (and probably to others as well, but the threats to the media are what is already documented). Our enemies found the weakest link in the fabric of America and exploited it - CRIMINALLY.

    And it was a game-changer. The Constitutional America of the past had her brains blown out by the thugs who put Obama into our White House as a foreign enemy combatant, and the shell of the body is what the rest of us have all been trying to work with and revive ever since then.

    Yet the people who are always given the limelight are the ones who are willing to talk loudly and act confident. Humility gets overlooked almost every time.

    It’s hard to know how to prepare kids for a world like that. To succeed they have to have “confidence” (toot their own horn), and yet the more intelligent (and Christian) way is humility.

    I don’t know.

    I do hate it when I’m too stupid to know that I’m stupid though. Except when it’s God letting me know that His ways are so far above my own understanding; that’s always a slightly bitter but mostly sweet learning.

    “Supposed to” doesn’t matter to me any more. My country itself and the importance of that question is more important to me than any rendition of a song.

    Musically speaking, the music is always supposed to serve the text.

  • Is the Tea Party the Last Line of Defense, in Defending Americans Against Radical Islam?

    Revelation, in the Bible, tells of a time when Satan will have worldly power to first off block buying and selling by - and later on also kill - anyone who refuses to accept his “mark of the Beast”, which is 666. Interestingly enough, what I’ve read is that Muslims say 666 is the symbol for the Quran. We know that Muslims seek to conquer the world through economic means. They’ve been able to do a lot on that because they own so much oil, and the leftists in the US won’t let us become energy-independent.

    Revelation also tells about “Babylon” falling - with the whole world astounded, including the johns who were drunk on the wine of her prostitutions. For a long time I’ve wondered if Babylon the great whore is really America. I’m thinking it might be the corrupt economic system that poses as capitalism but has been “Cloward-Piven”-ed to make it fall. The fat-cats in business, education, entertainment, government, etc who are cannibalizing everyone else for the sake of their own personal “god” - money and power.

    Combine all that with Revelation’s picture of the two beasts - one out of the sea and one out of the land - which serve the dragon (who is directly called Satan). One interpretation of that is that the 2 beasts are corrupt religion and corrupt government/politics. Again, that image really seems to match what we’ve got going on today - the preachers who make government and the welfare system out to be “God”. The demonic religion of Islam getting power through political players who want their money and followers. It’s all an orgy of corruption between the power-mongers, both political and religious.

    I don’t think the Tea Party can save America. If America is going to be saved it will ONLY be through divine intervention. The Tea Party may be the David who throws the smooth round stone, but that stone will only be able to hit its mark through the power of the Almighty God. “In God We Trust” is more than a motto. It is our last defense.

    We need to be praying, with all our hearts. The only rescue for us is the LORD, and what He needs to save us from in this world is ourselves.

    The first verse ends with a question: “Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?”

    When I sing along I don’t go down for the last note. I go up, to make it a question as it truly is.

    Does the flag still wave over the land of the free and the home of the brave? Only America’s people can answer that, and not by anything they sing or say - but only by what they DO. It takes one generation to destroy this country, and I’m afraid the Bill Ayers generation has done it.

    It depends on what the rest of us DO. That will be our answer to the QUESTION that is our national anthem.

    Francis Scott Key answered it for his day, in the words of the 4th verse.

    Americans need to pull our heads out of our rear ends and finally answer it for OUR generation.

    From post 2, it sounds like he’s already got sustained damage from earlier hate mail - from the Unabomber.

    I think he knows what’s at stake here. Way past time for the rest of the country to also realize what is at stake.

    The lawlessness of the entire government is a serious issue - an alarm that I began raising in 2010. I was told I was being silly, that I was a “crazy birther”. I was an embarrassment to conservatism. I said the rule of law is NOT an embarrassing distraction, because if the government can be this lawless without consequences, they can do ANYTHING regarding ANY SUBJECT. And it was not going to be limited to piddles (not that a foreign enemy combatant being allowed to overtake our White House is “piddles”, in my estimation - but that is what everybody else was calling “piddles” at the time...)

    What they are saying is as serious an allegation as there can be is actually mere piddles compared to what’s already been exposed about Obama’s documentation fraud. In this case they are only hiding records which already existed, in order to hide what is there. And yes, that is really, really bad because it shows that the integrity/truthfulness of the system is lost. But in the case of Obama’s documentation - an issue which allowed Obama, Hillary, Jarrett, etc the keys to the kingdom, to practice this outright lying - government entities actually CREATED FALSE DOCUMENTATION in order to enact a coup. A coup that enabled all the crap/crimes/war against the US and her allies, including not only Benghazi, but also Fast & Furious, the deliberate non-enforcement of our borders, IRS-gate, NSA-gate, the illegal firing of about 5 inspectors general including Gerald Walpin, the release of a “known terrorist” at the Boston Marathon bombing, the Bergdahl swap for 5 of the worst Gitmo terrorists, Extortion 17, the ousting of Mubarak in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the ousting of Ghadaffi in Libya in favor of terrorists, the running of weapons from Libya to what ended up being ISIS, the “loss” of over 20,000 Manpads from Libya, etc...

    I’m glad that Gowdy and Chaffetz seem to “get it” on the seriousness of this charge, but the horse has already been allowed to leave the barn LONG, LONG before this - while all the critters in Congress poo-poohed and mocked people like myself and other researchers who tried giving them evidence of MUCH, MUCH worse crimes that were committed simply to get the foreign enemy combatant into our White House, where he could appoint his criminal accomplices to rape and destroy the country and Constitution that they swore to protect and defend.

    It is WAY past time for those serious crimes to be prosecuted and all who winked at those crimes as well as those who perpetrated them be brought to the clear light of day and to justice. Real justice.
