    We were in Siloam Springs, Ar. My husband was back from the Coast Guard (military service) finishing his BA at John Brown U. I entered a local writing contest about America and won 2nd place. We were far away from our families, but got together with some college friends, then took the kids to the fireworks display.

    The first time I saw her, a video that someone really raved about, was when I saw that looks was the only thing she had going for her. She was not all that impressive, and since then, every time she opens her mouth, I cringe that anybody could call her conservative. She is a “spy” sent among the conservatives to turn them. That’s all. Like the Russians did during the cold war. She’s having a rather good amount of success. Now many of the guys she was appearing with all sound like Katherine (I think this is her first name) Parker. Mealy mush. Always looking to slam conservatives.

    No, Rubio, the people actually voted, spoke their desires. The SCOTUS actually upended the rights of the public to pass laws they wanted on the books. If we are to give up and let any branch of government do what he SC and the WH house have been doing then we don’t deserve a republic. We deserve what we get, which anybody with a grain of common sense knows will be chaos.

    Had they NOT made it public, and “the world” found out later, it would have received no less hatefulness, no less vitriol, no less attention. Probably a lot more and Sarah would have been accused of trying to cover it up, being deceitful, etc. They cannot win, regardless. It is sad, unfortunate, etc. that this happened, but it is the same thing that happens in all the rest of our families every day. They are not gods. They are humans, make the same mistakes, etc. Sarah never once set herself up as a “better than thou” Christian type, it was the media that did that so they could eviscerate her for every family fault that comes to light. Let’s pray for the Palins instead of joining the pack of wolves. The intent of the media is to make her a pariah so that no one will ever want her to be any leader or in a position of leadership.

    Why do WE let THEM win these games? The left is openly perverse and yet we let them dictate who we “trust” by allowing them to eviscerate all our best candidates. We let the LEFT determine who is good enough for us? Then no one is...plainly sated, they will FIND something or INVENT something to bring down every godly candidate we put up, especially at the 11th hour, when there is no time for a rebuttal. We should know the tactics of the left by now.

    When we read headlines about some of our best people, instead of jumping off the wagon of support, we should be hunkering down and praying for them. In fact, if we were really praying for godly candidates to be successful, we’d be praying for the ones we feel we could support instead of watching to see what the left is going to find on them. The left will make a mountain out of a molehill, will juice it up, will make it as trashy as possible the time it is announced. We should be wary of ANYTHING the media puts out. I am sad for Bristol Palin, but I think no less of Sarah than I ever have. It is not Sarah’s fault that her daughter made a couple mistakes. If people knew some of the things we all have done, would we willingly confess to them? Most of us would be angry about it.

  • Greenfield: Be the Best Saboteur You Can Be

    06/27/2015 6:57:36 AM PDT · 13 of 62
    Shery to Louis Foxwell

    From the very beginning of our country there were those who opposed our freedom, wanted to be (stay) British citizens. Likewise, from early Christianity there were those who wanted to keep the Levitical law of the Jews, made them feel that they were better than the rest.

    There is always an element that wants to change or tear down that which is good, honorable, godly. Since the Garden, there has been a desire of Satan to thwart God’s will on earth, and even though he seems to be winning, those who are his minions will soon find out the terrible truth. I have prayed all my life that this day would not come to America, but look at what we’ve become as a people. Apathetic, ungodly, perverse, filling our idle time with the same. We have allowed ourselves to be entertained to death. Sports, games, community things, all to keep us busy and off our knees. It has worked. People don’t have time for church, prayer, reading their Bibles, etc. Hence, when these pollsters come along, they rightly discern that America has come far away from its Biblical roots the founding fathers so diligently laid for us. We cannot recognize the Truth any longer, but are deceived into believing the half-truth, like Satan tempted Eve with in the Garden. People fall for what sounds right instead of what IS right. Don’t know the difference any longer.

    We can lament our situation all day long, and we can try to do as this author suggested, but the power this admin has created for itself and the government will not be stopped or slowed. We will be arrestedIf we as a people do NOT repent, we will waste all efforts to stall and break this government’s back. Only God can do it, not ourselves. If we refuse to repent and call on Him, we will waste a lot of human effort. Even if we do repent, it is not going to be an easy task, so let’s start where we need to, and we will get the best results. Prayer, repentance for our own apathy, and then asking Him how we can best be doing the work that lies ahead. Unfortunately, the Enemy will have made some resistant to helping, feeling that nothing can be done.

    Another aspect is this: All of Scripture warns of how things will be at the end of time. Personally, I believe we are there. Israel has been in the land now for 67 years, she has Jerusalem as her capitol, even if the rest of the world refuses to recognize it. And...the generation that “saw” this some to pass is close to passing away, age-wise. Scripture says that THIS generation will NOT pass away before the end comes. We can continue the fight and we should, but we must always remember that God’s timing and purposes will be accomplished according to His own plans. We best be in the Word, getting ready by understanding the times we live in so we can be prepared for what is coming...persecution like there has never been before.

    Good. This is why I could not stay in the libertarian tent. They outwardly talk a ‘christian’ world-view, but they are not Christian in actuality. They talk conservative to please the conservatives, but often oppose christian values when it is time to vote. They vote way too often with the planks of the CPUSA, and as I began to ask questions, I saw that they are actually not conservative at all. I wish real conservatives could see this and stop listening the the rhetoric.

    I realize that few republicans are really conservative, either, and I have actually written several letters to Reince Priebus, complaining about the fact that so many “republicans” do not even attempt to hold to the party’s stand on issues...even small government. That is the only issue I have in common with libertarians, really. Any Christians who vote libertarian need to really read up on the party’s ideology. And, not just listen to the politicos. You are not going to get the truth b/c they want your vote...are willing to reframe any speech to get the listeners to vote for them.

    Shery to JohnBrowdie

    In my opinion, there have been a lot more Walker threads than Cruz, so just because every single political thread doesn’t mention him in some way, it’s not because he’s being blacklisted. Maybe you need to do a little research. But let me offer this one opinion of my own. Walker is a great governor and I think he’d make a good president. However, I want to return to the US Constitution as a basis of our federal government’s operation. The man I believe who os the best choice for that is Ted Cruz. If he goes against what appears to be a conservative vote, he explains his vote. Unlike Walker and Paul who seem to flip-flop, depending one the group they are talking to, Cruz stands true, even if booed. I want someone who stands on principle, not for every opinion out there. Who could trust a person like that? I’m certainly NOT sure that Walker would undo the amnesty by fiat that has recently been imposed upon us by Obama. He has gone back and forth on that issue so much that I don’t trust him.

    Shery to yarddog

    I’m with you. In fact, Obama is God’s judgment against America. What makes it worse is that no one is calling for America, or even Christians to repent. You might ask why Christians need to repent, and that is because judgment starts with God’s people. We have allowed this to come by sitting back and doing little to stop it. Nor have we fasted and prayed. We are like Judah, back in the OT, when they already knew how God judged Israel for their idolatry, they not only did not learn from their lesson, but they started sacrificing their children to Molech. 57 million babies later, I’d say that we are ripe for a TERRIBLE judgment if we continue to refuse to ask God’s forgiveness for our laziness and lack of concern. We’ve had a lot of disasters to bring us to our knees and repent, but that has not happened. We’ve had plenty of opportunities. We have little time left to unseal that deal...and it is going to be horrendous when it comes.

    This angers me! And yet, where is the boycott of ME products from nations who constantly threaten Israel? What about boycotts to nations who sponsor the Muslim Brotherhood, or ISIS? The bottom line, as all Christians should remember is this: it is God they are against and Israel because she is His chosen people, His “wife” as Scriptures claim. If not for that, they’d enjoy life as any other country. What happens to Israel will come to us Christians, the “bride of Christ”, as the days grow darker.

    I agree with my husband, who at the onset of the Iraq war said that we should have taken out Saudi Arabia and Iran, then Iraq would’ve bowed it’s knees. Instead, we have a ME that is in total chaos. Although, one cannot lose sight of the fact, that in God’s perspective and timeline, we are closing out the ‘age of grace’ rapidly and entering into the birth pangs that will bring the day of Jacob’s Trouble...Daniel’s 70th week onto the scene. With the rapidity of current events taking place today, it is impossible to set a time line, but anyone with a mediocre view of the Bible can see that things are quickly moving to those events foretold by many OT writers and a few NT writers, as well. It behooves believers to get back to the Bible and start preparing for that day. I know most believe we will be raptured out before, but I am not one of those, having been cured of that back in the 1980s. Nothing has happened that would make me go back to that belief. Anyway, it is time to prepare for the worst. And, if it happens like you want it to, then I would not object. however, I want to be prepared to go through the coming storm, and God will be faithful to those who prepare, as the parable of the 10 virgins says.

    To my thinking, it will not be long before we see a “strong man” take charge of things in the ME, as things are falling into chaos more every day. The antichrist is waiting in the wings, as they say. He is already on the scene, I’m certain, but he has not made a move to come to power yet. He is biding his time.

    We ARE in a spiritual battle, for certain. It is evidenced more every day. For those who are just waking up to it, I suggest you purchase Kay Arthur’s study book on it, called: Lord, Is It Warfare? It is a study on Ephesians, but different than most well-intended ones, it helps you to see the conflicts and how we are conflicted in our spirit by the world around us. It is not just another book written with a “personal” perspective, as so many are, but she uses Scripture to illuminate Scripture. This way you get God’s word on it and not man’s ideas.

A male still retains male genes, and a female still retains female genes, even after going through sex change surgeries and hormonal therapies.

    I was recently diagnosed with arthritis, same symptoms. My mom has fibromyalgia, but I’ve never had that. The doc gave me Mobic, and it works the very best of all. Tylenol and Alleve goes away too quickly.

    The IMPORTANT thing to remember is this: Get the inflammation out! My German doc told me to double up on the anti-inflammatories the first couple days, then scale back. I normally don’t need them past two days if I do that, until I have another jab of pain. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that “I’ll just take enough to ease the pain.” Pain indicates inflammation. You will have more pain later if you don’t reduce the inflammation now. IN other words, the arthritis becomes MUCH worse over time if you fail to reduce the inflammation early on. I used to think that taking the pain meds sparingly was the best thing...but I found the pain was almost constant. By doubling up, I get off the meds in 2 days and usually don’t have an immediate reoccurance. Maybe a week or two...two to three onths...whatever.

    I think Sarah Palin could do it, personally, but I think Ted would be better. It’s taken a year for me to come around to that, but putting personal likes and preferences aside, one wants a strong godly man in the position. Not saying that God might not use a woman here in America, but God uses women when there is no suitable male willing to step up. I’m sorta sick of the scandals and hype about everything. Under Hillary it would be nothing but the same old thing day in and day out. I pray that America is truly looking for a change!

    What the article failed to mention is that, not only does Iran having increasingly more influence int he ME, but in our own backyard. They have bases in SA, and for all we know, Cuba. Would it surprise anybody? Not if you are a history reader, and understand the Communist and the ME (Muslim) mindset. Both rely upon lies to accomplish their goals. We lived in the ME for 6 years, and we did humanitarian work in Russia 5 summers. It was good experience for understanding both cultures.

    These boys, nor the coach, will ever feel like they have normal lives again. I wonder what ever happened to this coach?

    I was a junior in HS that year and it hit Kokomo, IN as well. Took out the whole south end of town. Schools. factories, malls, name it. It was bad. It was the 2nd that bad that I knew of growing up, and a couple others hit since.

    Where does one begin? First of all, Israel could NOT break the covenant God gave to Abraham. Why? Because Abraham did NOT walk through the pieces of the sacrificed animals. Only God did. In other words, only God could break it and He said that He’d only break it if the the cosmos, etc. ceased to exist.

    God has disciplined Israel for her many sins and rejecting her Messiah, but those days will come to an end, when after the rapture, which occurs between seals 6 & 7, Christ reveals Himself to his brethren, see Zechariah 12:10-14, and they mourn over Him whom they pierced...” It is the same picture as when Joseph revealed himself to his brothers at their second coming into Egypt to buy grain.

    I can understand people believing that Israel was replaced by the church up until Israel was reestablished as a nation in 1948. After that, and since she has claimed Jerusalem again as her capitol, there is no reason to believe the church has superceded Israel. In fact, Paul warned about that. We are grafted in until that time that God again deals with her. Israel is God’s woman. The church in the Bride of Christ. God did not discard Israel. Replacement theology is from the Serpent. The Serpent deceives the woman in the Garden, and tries to deceive the Bride of Christ. Today, the church is being bombarded by the Dragon, Satan, from without (persecution) and by the Serpent, Satan, from within by false teaching.
    Israel is back in the land in unbelief, yes, but that doesn’t disqualify her from God’s dealings. This was prophesied in Ezekiel 37. All the nations that come against her will be destroyed when Christ returns. Israel will be decimated by Antichrist, with only a remnant that remains, but she will then mourn over her Messiah whom she rejected and be reinstated. She is God’s woman forever. He will cleanse her and reinstate her at that time. We are to be supportive of her, pray for her to recognize her Redeemer and to be reconciled. We are to pray for the peace of Israel, and to treat her as a sister. Unfortunately, all will let her stand alone in the days of Antichrist. I only pray that America does not take up arms against her. The world will increasingly call for her destruction. We must pray that America stands strong for Israel.
