Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever

Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.

Today, it is critical that those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

AUSTIN MILES: ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION!

December 29, 2016
Islam is NOT a religion!
By Rev. Austin Miles


Let us be totally clear: Islam is not a religion qualifying for religious exemptions including Freedom of Religion. 
It is instead, a violent political ideology with the goal of taking over the world. Islam teaches its followers to murder any and all "infidels," meaning those who do not accept their manifesto of hate.
They are taught, not to become better people with integrity, but to lie in order to further their ideology. 
They are taught in their "holy book" The Koran, to kill innocent people in cold blood, plus, they are taught that raping children, including toddlers, is perfectly OK. 
Indeed they can sexually abuse anyone without consequences. That brutal ideology does not consider these violent sexual assaults illegal or sinful, but indeed permissible. The founder of Islam, Muhammad, married a 7 year old girl.

The most disturbing fact of the followers of that false religion is that they are all pedophiles (at least in principle, implicitly condoning such behavior) and are justified by their own (Sharia) laws, the same as NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association to make acceptable the rape of boy children, while most of the Muslims are after little girls.
And many are absolutely uncontrollable in their lusts. 
Obama has thrown open the borders of America to any and all of his fellow Muslims who want to come in as "refugees." Following their entry, violent rapes have been brought in with them as well as Jihad murders of our citizens, all from within.

In Twin Falls, Idaho, these 'migrants' have been forced in by the Obama Administration, allowing them to live in that state, where they all receive welfare, free housing, medical benefits and food stamps.

One family moved into an apartment building. 
Shortly after moving in, two young Muslims in that family stalked and raped a little five year old girl who lived in that complex, not only brutally tearing her little vagina which would be exceedingly painful, but then had to further abuse that innocent child by urinating on her. These people are sub-human.
And who is protecting those Muslim savages? 
The Obama appointed U.S. Attorney for Idaho Wendy J. Olson, who has threatened prosecution against anyone in that town who speaks badly of that Muslim family. 
WHAT?? So this horrific rape of a little girl was set in place by the actions of Obama. The people, however, ran those Islamic thugs out of that apartment building. They probably are still in the U.S. where they will rape again.

Now the big question: What is religion? Religion is based upon God, or a manufactured god. The purpose of any religion, where a deity is worshiped, is to become better people and to do charitable work. That is why religious organizations are given freedom to follow their religions without interference.

Islam, however, is not any of the things associated with religion. It is based upon a hoax by Muhammad who claimed the Angel, Gabriel, had revealed the text of the Koran to him to share with the world.
How's that again? Gabriel is the Archangel of Israel! So Gabriel has ditched God to assist in the formation of a false religion that will overthrow God? Ridiculous!
Muhammad claims, as true, that he was taken by Gabriel to Israel where he put his feet on the Temple Mount and became familiar with the area. That also is a yarn. Muhammad never set his foot in Israel.
When cornered on this he stated that the trip to Israel was given to him in a vision, a much different story than he told his followers and the world for years. But remember, Muslims are given full encouragement to lie in order to further their cause. The real God says; "thou shalt not lie." Big difference.

And this created "religion" hates Jews, God's chosen people, and is dedicated to slaying every Jew that can be found? And the Archangel of Israel will help carry out this dastardly deed? We don't think so.

True religion encourages morals, Islam does the opposite. 
Indeed, if a Muslim gets killed by killing innocent people, which is a grave sin, he is considered a 'martyr' and ushered directly into Heaven where, it is promised, 72 virgins will be there on silken pillows awaiting each new arrival, where the 'martyr' will receive unlimited perverted sex for all eternity. We wonder what the wives and girl friends left behind think about this?

Here is something else to think about regarding that phony 72 virgins promise: When one does go to heaven, he does NOT take his body with him. The body stays here. Only one's SPIRIT goes to heaven or hell. So how can that "martyr" who is now a spirit and the 72 virgins who are only spirits, have sex? Answer: It would not be possible since sex requires physical bodies to carry out that desire.They all are transparent with only a spiritual body. It would seem that minimal thinking would have figured this out.
In any case, a true God would never be an immoral god. The "god" that Muslims have been conned into worshiping would be just that, an immoral god.

The Ten Commandments teach that one should not kill, something all religions teach....EXCEPT for Islam where murders of innocent people means lifetime tributes to the killer with the photos of the 'martyr' and his family prominently displayed in their mosque.

They are so focused on killing that they look for what is called 'soft targets,' meaning targets that cannot fight back, such as hospitals, nursing homes, schools and Christian churches. These "holy warriors" are total cowards who kill people where they are assured they will not get hurt in the process.

These misguided people who follow that cult try to con the world by saying that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. 
NO THEY DO NOT! Muslims worshiped the pagan moon god, Alilah, who had two daughters. This is why the emblem of Islam is a half moon and a star.
Muslims worshiped Alilah but were forbidden to worship her daughters. When Mohammed convinced the world that he had been given a new religion, he changed the moon god name, taking the "i" out of her name to provide the more masculine name, Allah, which came to signify the higher power over the universe.
To give them credibility, Muslim leaders tried to convince the world that we worship the same God, which of course is not true. Indeed that is a lie, which Muslims are instructed to do to further their cause. And by the way, Muslim is not a race, it is an ideology. Muslims are mostly Arabs.That is their race.

It was duly noted that right after the 9/11 attacks in New York City, a prominent Muslim cleric bragged on television right after the attacks: "This just proves that OUR god is more powerful than YOUR God." By the words spoken on TV by that Islamic leader (I saw that interview right after the attacks), his very words on TV PROVED that they do NOT worship the same God as Christians and Jews.

He also bragged that this attack would attract many new recruits to 'the cause.' And amazingly, many misfits did join them in the midst of that carnage falsely believing that this would give them purpose, identity (and,as dumb as it is), worth. Yes "worth" by causing havoc, suffering and death, which means to them that this shows power. Such soulless malcontents are very vulnerable and easy to manipulate.
These recruits are being deceived, used, abused and exploited by colossal lies. Muslims, you are better than this. You have been duped into joining this political cult when you, like everyone else, have a seed of greatness within. This means everybody. But that seed must be nourished so it can grow. With that, you can be better than you are and can achieve real recognition and respect in this life without blood on your hands along with grieving survivors of your attacks.

Instead of becoming great people, whom you were created to be, you have been manipulated into sins that anger God, transforming you into wicked men and women totally separated from the true God. 
See these Words in the actual Holy Book The Bible"But if ye shall still do wickedly, ye shall be consumed (put to death and sent to the flames of hell with eternal torment), both you and your king (your Islamic leaders)." 1 Samuel 12:25.

If you wonder why you have a hard life and have very little of what you desire and need, here is the answer as written in Jeremiah 5:25"Your iniquities have turned away these things and your sins have withheld good things from you." This means that it is your own sins that deny you the good things of life. You only need to renounce these sinful activities and learn about Jesus, the Son of God.
Even though mosques are protected under "religious freedom" in this country, a mosque is not a holy sanctuary but more like a union hall to recruit workers. 
It is in the mosque where the inside attacks of this country are preached and planned. There is nothing "holy" about it. It is a place of devious planning and instructions for murder and destruction. It is by no means a church and should not be recognized as such.

Muslims can be charming and very hospitable. They are the most dedicated people to their cause that can be found on earth. However, that dedication leads to the wrong path that leads straight to hell.

Muslims have been and are constantly being misinformed. What they are taught in the mosques are lies...which of course is fully acceptable if it advances the cause. Haven't we heard that before? It is in the Koran, the so-called, "holy book." That in itself is a lie.

Muslims who have unexpectedly encountered Jesus have left everything behind to follow Him. And you will find no more dedicated Christian than those who have learned the truth. 
A million Muslims a year have had that experience and have left Islam to follow Christ. The lies that Islam has pushed on unsuspecting recruits has taken them away from any decency and productive lives they might have had by turning them into heartless savages and right into the fires of hell.
There is certainly more on this subject that can be found, but what has been proven here is that Islam is not a religion. Which means that Islam does NOT qualify for protections under the "Freedom of Religion" laws which they have exploited in order to intrude into countries and to set up their mosques which is not to become better people, but to stir those who gather there to hate and slay all Jews and Christians, even though hospitality was extended to them by the very country they invaded.

But what about moderate or 'good' Muslims? There may be. 
But as long as they read the Koran and go to the mosque, they cannot be trusted. 
If they denounce and get rid of their Koran and disassociate themselves from the mosque, then they might be in a position of trust, but not before then. Meanwhile the open borders must stop for our own survival.
Our leaders must be contacted and persuaded to take all mosques and Islam off the religion protection list. They are NOT a religion.

OBAMA, THE ENEMY OF GOD



December 31, 2016
The President is no friend
By Rev. Mark H. Creech

Last year, Judson Phillips wrote in the Washington Times something apparent to anyone politically astute. 
He said, "It is beyond debate that America has a president who is cheering for and working for our enemies. 
We have a president who wants to see nations that hate America and an ideology of evil triumph over America as well as the Western values of freedom and liberty."
Now the President has instructed his U.N. Ambassador not to veto a resolution condemning our best friend of democracy in the middle-east for building "settlements" on disputed lands. 
Yet the compromises Israel has made in the past over such territories have not produced peace, but only emboldened her enemies with more acts of terror. 
A two state solution? Twelve years after his death, the promise of Yasser Arafat essentially remains the mantra of Palestinian leaders:
"We plan to eliminate the state of Israel and establish a purely Palestinian state. We will make life unbearable for Jews by psychological warfare and population explosion. We Palestinians will take over everything, including all of Jerusalem."
Columnist CAL Thomas got it right in his own Washington Times op-ed Wednesday when he noted, "The U.S. abstention will inevitably invite stepped-up attacks against Israelis, as well as calls for more boycotts by the European Union, whose ugly anti-Semitic past and present is well documented."

Someone once wrote, "Don't fear the enemy that attacks you, but the fake friend that hugs you."
There is something fearfully wrong about President Obama. He has an affinity for those who despise the children of Abraham, as well as spiritual Israel, the church of Jesus Christ.
Why is this?
Socialists, like the President, whether consciously or subconsciously, find Judaism and Christianity as primary obstacles to the collective objectives of the state. 
Marxism rejects a spirit of independence separate from the state. It denies the right to build a life based on one's own achievements, skill, creativity, and labor. It has no authority higher than the state itself.
Judaism and Christianity, however, declare just the opposite – that God's will and incontrovertible law is the source of men's rights. These rights are inalienable, not granted nor can they be taken by the government, and among them is the right to life, liberty, and one's property.

This even explains, in some degree, the president's favoritism toward Islamic countries. Marxism sees all religious practice arising out of exploitation. Religion is "the opiate of the people"- something used to deal with life's oppressors.

Ben Shapiro, political commentator and author, explains the connection well when he writes:
"President Obama believes, like many on the left, that Western civilization was founded in racism, sexism, homophobia, and other bigotry – and that Christianity, as its wellspring, provided that impetus... 
Obama believes that Western civilization has exploited the rest of the world, and that it, therefore, bears culpability for the poverty that gave rise to the Islamic wave. 
Muslims are benighted victims of poverty; Christianity made them victims of poverty in the first place...As Dinesh D'Souza puts it, Obama is an anti- colonialist and believes "that the rich countries got rich by looting the poor countries, and that within the rich countries, plutocratic and corporate elites continue to exploit ordinary citizens." 
Taken one step further, those rich countries – Christian countries – exploited non-Christian countries, impoverishing them and opening them to the opium of Islam."

The President is genuinely no friend of Judeo-Christian teaching. He says he's a friend. He even says that he's a Christian, but he treacherously knifes Israel in the back – the same way he's been betraying and undermining a Christian America.

THE TWO STATE SOLUTION IS BIBLICAL NONSENSE

December 31, 2016
Biblical prophecy exposes the "two state solution" as absolute nonsense
By Michael Bresciani

It is hard to imagine a body of anti-Semites sitting in a nation that is allied to Israel working so hard to destroy that sovereign nation. But this is the UN, an innocuous group of one world thinkers, supported largely by the United States taxpayer, who ignore scripture, are void of all prophetic knowledge and the plan God has for his very special people – the Jews.
When the British met the Minutemen at Lexington it made history in what has been coined "The shot heard round the world." Not since then has there been anything like it – but wait – now there's Obama's parting shot against the nation of Israel, our strongest Middle Eastern ally.

This is also history, howbeit, grossly profane.
After being labeled us all gun toting, Bible clinging and angry citizens; Mr. Obama has remained true to form. 
In his final act of disdain for our history and heritage he called for our representative to the UN to abstain from the vote, which essentially puts Israel at the mercy of the rest of the world a world with even less knowledge of the prophetic destiny of Israel than our outgoing president.

We believe that history is made wholly by nations acting out their part in a developing world, 
but scripture say that nations create history based on their ignorance and rejection of the prophetic message of the bible. The immutable maxim here is that when politics meets prophecy, politics always loses.
Prophecy is the pre-determinate will and counsel of the Living God and it cannot be altered by men.
Examples abound. The world thinks it will come to a place that by applying itself to discourse and a bit of wishful thinking we will all sit down and talk our way into world peace. 
The bible is not so naïve and tells us the hard truth. Men will continue to war and fight until the day when Christ enters our history again. (Mk 13: 7)

In fact, beside the wars and rumors of war taking place around the world there will be a final lunge toward Israel by many Arab nations that will utterly fail and a final gathering of all the armies of the world in what is well known as the battle of Armageddon. 
That battle will end with the annihilation of every single participant in that conflict. (Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39) (Rev 16: 16)

World peace brokered by the UN – do not hold your breath.
In the interim we can only hope that after the inauguration of President-elect Trump, he will remedy the infamous vote of the U.N. by whatever means needed, including defunding them to keep them from interfering with our allies.
It is a sad day when we have to hear Sephardic Chief Rabbi, Yitzhak Yosef declare that the "US has forsaken Israel" and that now they must all stand alone with the help of God alone. 
While that is surely enough, it doesn't say much for our trustworthiness throughout the world and it speaks volumes about the worst presidential administration in our entire history as a nation.
The "Two State Solution" is the pipe dream of warring and troubled nations that need to look much closer to the mess in their own backyard.
If this all sounds hopeless – not to despair, the entire world will be plunged into peace, but not until the rightful ruler, the Lord Jesus Christ, returns to take his throne. He is – "The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9: 6)

OBAMA'S TIN EAR AND SELF DELUSION



December 30, 2016
'In the name of God, go': The D.C. guest who won't go home
By Wes Vernon

Having been soundly rejected by the American people for his seeming determination to "transform" America into a Marxist socialist state, President Obama's tin ear is adding to his self-delusion.
Mr. Obama plans to rent an office in Washington, as history repeats itself, sort of. It was Woodrow Wilson who became the last president to remain in Washington after his term was up. Americans were not sold on Wilson's advocacy of U.S. membership in the League of Nations. Moreover, our World War I president's long illness had unofficially made his First Lady the de facto President during the last two years of her husband's term.

But Obama

In our day – since the Constitution barred Mr. Obama from a third term on top of his ruinous and lawless eight years – our current president used as an excuse to hang around Washington the fact that one of his daughters wanted to finish her schooling.

Yeah, right. His real aim is clear. The mainstream media will treat him as the fountainhead of all wisdom, as of course he knew they would, and he will now be in a perfect position to second guess (by then) President Trump, who can't get to that White House soon enough to rescue America.

Constitution?

Since Mr. Obama disregarded the Constitution while in office, what makes anyone think he will respect that precious freedom-preserving, tyrant-unfriendly document now that he is safely beyond the wrath of the mere voters? Many of them are steaming because of the uncountable illegal aliens who may have given Hillary Clinton her edge in the popular vote, as he openly urged them to do.

This situation is precisely the ultimate example of why the Founding Fathers gave us the Electoral College. We don't know whether illegals tipped the scales to enable Hillary to carry the heavy vote count in California and New York.
UN

Supposedly "on his way out the door," Mr.Obama has stabbed Israel, our reliable ally in the Middle East, by making it even easier for the terrorists there to inflict permanent damage on that lone democracy in the neighborhood.
Even though the settlements have been built, for which Israel is roundly criticized, what really does it matter? Many of those objecting the loudest do not believe Israel has a right to exist. So what are we talking about here? Stop hitting my fist with your face (again)?

Hypocrisy

But don't worry. On January, the betrayal of an ally will mean even less to our outgoing president who imitates a whiny autocrat when he's not only beyond the voters, but also beyond the reach of impeachment. 
Somewhere, there is a need to make an official "on the record" statement about him. Dereliction of duty? Failure to "take care that the laws be faithfully executed"? Even worse? Does anyone dare utter the "t" word (as in traitor)?
What's more...

Our friends at Judicial Watch have issued a report that "Islamic terrorists operate [and] raise cash in Latin America to attack [the] U.S."
Chris Farrell's report from Judicial Watch is based on a document released by Spain's Defense Ministry, which informs us that Latin America "is a hotbed of terrorism where groups like ISIS and Hezbollah operate freely and raise large sums of money to finance terrorism in other countries, mainly the United States."

Judicial Watch cites cooperation between Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug cartels, and the Spanish Intel report says, "The ignorance involving the threat of jihadist terrorism in Latin America has been such that some governments have refused to cooperate with U.S. authorities."

Millions of Muslims, including some from nations that are rife with terrorist activity, have flooded nations south of the U.S. border.
This column has previously reported that we in the U.S. are surrounded – literally, politically, militarily, and ideologically.
This peril to our nation comes at a time when our lame duck Commander-in-Chief is giddy exhibiting the swagger that has sometimes characterized bullies. He betrays not only the people who twice elected him, but, as with his betrayal of Israel, has no compunction about abandoning allies.

It requires no genius to be concerned that all this threat and danger can lead to war on our own soil. 9/11 may have been a prelude.
Again we are reminded of the tongue-lashing delivered bluntly on the floor of the British Parliament to the hapless Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who had appeased Hitler – "In the name of God, go." But Chamberlain was a dupe. Obama shows every sign of knowing exactly what he is doing.

My comments: As I have written repeatedly, Obama came to TRANSFORM America into a godless, Socialist, Secular Humanist STATE. He is an Anti-Chrsit, agaisnt God and His Word and agaisnt Israel who has a Promise from God. He could be THE ANTICHRIST! Time will tell. It is clear that the Babylon of America is behind him and would have put him in the Presidency if they could. To America's SHAME he has an approval rating above 50%. Would Babylon of America make him their "god"? YES, they would.

ANALYZING OBAMA'S TREACHERY



December 30, 2016
Analyzing Obama's treachery
By Joan Swirsky

After watching all the pomp and circumstance of the presidential inauguration of January 20, 2009, I remember turning to my husband Steve and saying: "The sole mission of Barack Obama and his henchmen is to destroy Israel."
Steve reminded me that there was a mountain of domestic issues awaiting the new, far-left regime, and I agreed. And sure enough, Mr. Obama and his minions proceeded to wreak havoc on job creation and on the American military, inflict strangulating regulations, amass crushing national debt, foist horrific healthcare and education systems on our citizens, seed every government department with operatives from the Nazi-inspired terrorist organization Muslim Brotherhood, and then hand over control of the Internet to the United Nationsthe most corrupt, tin-pot-dictator-driven, anti-American, anti-Semitic, American-resource-draining cesspool in our country.

But all that still left them plenty of time to enact a foreign policy that genuflected to our enemies and spit in the face of our most faithful allies, most particularly Israel.
Writer Mona Charen has said that Mr. Obama has a "genocidal hostility toward Israel." As if to reinforce that opinion, he just engaged in his longtime habit of spitting on Jews – and also Christians – by launching his poison dart on December 23rd, right in time for Chanukah and Christmas.

After the first vote proposed by Egypt to condemn Israeli "settlements" – meaning housing on Israeli land – was canceled after President-elect Trump intervened, the vote was rescheduled in the United Nation's Security Council when New Zealand (10,000 miles from Israel), Malaysia (where the official religion is Islam), Senegal (which is 90-percent Muslim), and Venezuela (so impoverished that people are now scrounging for toilet paper) reinstituted the anti-Israel measure, and the United States, reversing decades of U.S. policy, refused to veto it.
Resolution 2334 demands that Israel "immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the [so-called] occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem." It also advised all states "to distinguish, in their relevant dealings, between the territory of the State of Israel and the territories occupied since 1967" – what former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon called "Auschwitz borders."

Despite White House denials that it had anything to do with creating the resolution, there is no doubt that this sneak attack was hatched and orchestrated directly from the Oval Office and involved Mr. Obama himself, Secretary of State John Kerry, Susan Rice, and other of his Jew-hating acolytes. Israel says it has "iron-clad evidence" of direct involvement, and leaked documents already confirm that claim.
Team of Jew haters

Samantha Power is Obama's Ambassador to the U.N., and it was she who delivered the curare-tipped pronouncement to not veto the vote. Her involvement is rich with irony, wrote Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, author of The Israel Warrior: Standing Up for the Jewish State from Campus to Street Corner (2016): "For the duration of the seemingly endless Syrian civil war [Power] has figuratively fiddled while that country burns. Now, with one foot out the door from a tenure that has all but obliterated her once formidable reputation as an anti-genocide activist, she's decided to kick Israel in the teeth. Earth to Samantha: 500,000 Arabs died in Syria. Do you really think the problem in the Middle East is Jews building extra bedrooms in communities in Beit-El? You couldn't pass even one United Nations Security Council Resolution condemning Russia, Syria, and Iran for the slaughter in Syria. But you passed this motion condemning peace-loving Jews who live in the ancient Biblical lands of Judea and Samaria?"

Power, as far back as 2002, advocated an end to all U.S. military aid to Israel and wrote of her willingness to "alienate a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import [American Jews]...." She also advocated, Ed Lasky writes, "that America send armed military forces," "a mammoth protection force" and an "external intervention" to "impose a settlement between Israel and the Palestinians." Nice.
Power joins a long list of Jew haters that Mr. Obama has surrounded himself with. This is the short list and does not count the teeming swamp of anti-Semites like Israel- loathing Islamist professors Rashid Khalidi and Edward Said and others going back to his childhood:
  • The "court Jews" who sold their souls to the devil in exchange for the seductive allure of access to power. One of many examples is Rahm Emanuel, who curried favor as White House Chief of Staff for his figurative 10-minutes of fame and effectively sold out his Israeli-born father and the land his father heroically fought for in the early years of Israel's existence.

  • Robert Malley, longtime security adviser to Mr. Obama and now his new ISIS czar, who is a fan of Hamas and Hezbollah, and has often called for an end to all aid to Israel. Wikipedia says he's the son of Simon Malley, an Egyptian-born Jewish journalist, and Barbara Silverstein, a New Yorker who worked for the U.N. delegation of the Algerian National Liberation Front. Both loathed Israel and apparently passed their toxic DNA on to their son.

  • Dennis Ross, Mr. Obama's former special adviser for the Persian Gulf and Southwest Asia, which included Iran, who participated in 12 years of failed Israeli-Palestinian "peace" efforts. He once suggested a plan that translated today would mean listening to the 22 hostile states that surround Israel and saying "majority rules!"

  • George Soros, the Hungarian-born Jewish multibillionaire who has devoted his entire life to far-left causes. Perhaps as a dress rehearsal for bringing down big bad America, he was responsible for breaking the bank of Englandand also implicated in the Asian financial crisis that broke the bank of Thailand, et al. He has also founded and funded numerous groups that work unstintingly to bring about Israel's destruction. He is known as Obama's "puppet master," meaning that his money essentially calls the shots on both America's domestic and foreign policies. According to Richard Poe's book, The Shadow Party: How George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Sixties Radicals Seized Control of the Democratic Party, the Soros cabal is really "a network of radicals dedicated to transforming our constitutional republic into a socialist hive." Read about the vast scope of the radical organizations Soros funds here, and why he is considered the "godfather of the left" here.

  • Hillary Clinton, who, says Dick Morris, has had "relationships with terrorists [that] began in the mid-1980s when she served on the Board of the New World Foundation – which gave funds to the Palestine Liberation Organization [when] the PLO was officially recognized by the U.S. government as a terrorist organization." As a lackey of and putative heir to Obama's, ahem, legacy, Hillary's rancid relationship with Israel is well known.

  • Susan Rice, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. and current National Security Advisor, who advocated ending all U.S. military aid to Israel and has inspired dozens of articles with titles like these in CommentaryMagazine.com: "Susan Rice Is Doing Something at the UN: Targeting Israel" and "What Was Susan Rice's Embarrassing Anti-Israel Tirade Supposed to Accomplish?"

  • Lee Hamilton, former Indiana congressman, whom Ed Lasky calls the eminence grise of Obama's Mideast policy and who has suggested that the U.S. should pressure Israel to surrender the Golan Heights and leave the West Bank. Hamilton has said not a word about dismantling Hamas or Hezbollah!

  • Zbigniew Brzezinski, an Obama advisor and longtime Israel loather, who suggested that the Obama administration should tell Israel that the U.S. will attack Israeli jets if they try to attack Iran.

  • John Brennan, former Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and current head of the CIA, who suggested that Mr. Obama & Co. "reach out" to Hezbollah. He has also said that jihadists and Islamists are not enemies of America because "jihad is a holy struggle...."

  • Valerie Jarrett, Iranian-born Muslim and Senior Advisor to Obama, who is described in a riveting article by Karin McQuillan in American Thinker as the power behind both Obamas. McQuillan also elaborates on Barack Obama's envy problem, which is central, I believe, to his Jewish problem. More on this below.

  • And of course John Kerry, who on Wednesday, speaking directly for his boss, spent over an hour on TV engaging in egregious historical revisionism and fairytale bromides to essentially inflict a two-state solution on Israel, with partners who to this day do not – and have sworn they never will – accept a Jewish state in their midst. My favorite line was Mr. Kerry saying that Israel could be Jewish or democratic, but not both. Duh.
Eyes and ears...the old reliable standbys

Why was I was confident that Obama's burning mission – his obsession – was to destroy Israel?
The first reason is that I trust what I see and hear.

Who can forget Mr. Obama's claim that in the 20 years he sat in the pews of "Reverend" Jeremiah Wright's church," he heard not one of the uncountable instances of virulent anti-American and anti-Semitic rants. But unless he was clinically deaf, of course he both heard and tacitly agreed with Wright – especially when it came to the Jews.

Impossible to forget the interview with George Stephanopoulos when Mr. Obama referred to "my Muslim faith" – which he did not correct but his host rushed to correct. I'm Jewish and I can promise you of the 14 million Jews in the world, not one would ever refer to "my Buddhist faith," just as not one of the 1.3-billion Christians in the world would ever refer to "my Zoroastrian faith." Plain and simple, it appeared that Mr. Obama experienced what old Sigmund would call a Freudian slip, i.e., when you accidently blurt out the truth.

In addition to his psychological inability to utter the words "Islamic terrorism," Mr. Obama has consistently lectured us about Islam's immense contribution to America (my history teachers strangely omitted this revelation). We know he was raised in his formative years in Indonesia, attended a Muslim madrassa, and even recalled as an adult that "the sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer." Of course, he also said that, "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation" and, speaking at the U.N., "The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam." That may play well in Indonesia, but it's completely alien to those of us who believe in free speech. 
Two other indelible events were when the Prime Minister of Israel came to the White House in 2010 and was left waiting for over an hour when Mr. Obama abruptly ended their meeting to eat dinner, sending the PM out the side door; and when he intrusively meddled in an Israeli election (while pontificating that there should be no meddling in the election that just repudiated his entire tenure in office). Just as indelible was the sight of Mr. Obama literally bowing deeply at the waist to the theocratic leader of Saudi Arabia and despots just like him.

We have good evidence that the Saudis paid for Mr. Obama's education at Harvard Law School. And that the Saudis, until the Iran deal went through, were sworn enemies of Israel. Could Mr. Obama have orchestrated U.N. Resolution 2334 to please his benefactors?

But most compelling is what the book Mr. Obama studied, the Koran, says about Jews, none of it good. For instance: "Oh Muslim...there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him."
This is a man who may call himself a Christian – in spite of the fact that when he spoke at Georgetown University, the nation's oldest Catholic and Jesuit school – he had the school cover up the name of Jesus Christ with black cloths – but it is clear that his heart and soul and politics lie squarely in the Muslim world – a world that loathes both Jews and Israel.

As I said, eyes and ears.

Behavior

The second reason for my conviction that Mr. Obama's mission was to destroy Israel derived from two powerful lessons I learned from being a psychotherapist for over two decades. The first, simply stated, is that you are what you do. Not how you describe yourself or your lofty plans, but what you actually do in this life. Your behavior.

Everything I've observed about Mr. Obama's behavior – what he does – from his affiliations with the anti-Israel, Jew-hating people he associated with in his past, to the anti-Israel, Jew-hating people he's chosen for high positions in his administration, to the pastor whose pews he sat in for 20 years (with ears wide open), to his indefensibly rude and contemptuous behavior toward the Prime Minister of Israel, to his anti-Israel benefactors – not only the Saudis but George Soros – to his latest treachery at the U.N., strengthens my conviction.

And second, I learned that the strongest human emotion is not hatred, not anger, and not vengeance, but jealousy! When you peel back the layers of emotion – whether it's in the commission of a crime like theft or even murder or hatred of Jews and Israel – jealousy is almost always the animating force.

Mr. Obama and his minions see the pathetic lack of creativity, of innovation, of an elevated standard-of-living, and of progress in the community of Arabs as maddening.
First, they were humiliated when at the founding of Israel in 1948, powerful Arab armies attacked the fledgling state and were annihilated by the bedraggled survivors of the Holocaust,

Second, the arch-terrorist Yassir Arafat decided in the late 1960s to name the disgruntled Arabs "Palestinians," effectively relegating them to perpetual victim status and allowing the world to watch them accomplish little more than sending their children on suicide-bombing missions and then naming a street after them and collecting a stipend for their "sacrifice."

Third, to this day they remain pathetically dependent on another ineffectual U.N. agency – the United Nations Relief and Works Agency [UNRWA], which has exploited them in the same way that Democrat politics has kept African-Americans in abject poverty for over 60 years, with high crime rates and inferior education, while promising them the moon.

When Mr. Obama & Co. contrast this embarrassing history with the jaw-dropping evolution of the Jewish state – its trailblazing technology and medical innovations, its symphonies, sports teams, booming economy and military might – it's infuriating to them. They get angry, crazed with anger, murderous with anger.

But under the fury is jealousy. They can't help it. What you see is the anger because anger feels good and jealousy feels bad. It's that simple.

Mr. Obama's impotence

In the case of the latest punishing U.N. resolution, however, it is pure conceit on the part of Mr. Obama & Co. to imagine that it will make any difference at all.

First and foremost, the powerful State of Israel does not take its marching orders from anyone except its democratically-elected officials, certainly not from a body like the U.N. that has seen fit to condemn Israel dozens of times while true monster states only once or not at all. In less than a month, Israel will have a true friend in the White House with President-elect Trump, Vice President-elect Pence, and virtually all of Mr. Trump's cabinet and staff choices.

Personally, if I could offer Mr. Trump one suggestion, it would be to throw the entire utterly useless, money-wasting United Nations out of the United States! This is exactly what Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer suggested the other night, to send this feckless excuse for an organization to Zimbabwe, and as for the "good real estate in downtown New York City...Trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos."
Vic Rosenthal, aka Abu Yehuda, describes yet more impotence. Is the resolution binding? No. Does it make settlements illegal? No. It is a Chapter VI resolution, defined as a "recommendation." Does it make settlements illegal? No. It justasserts that they are, but the legal case is weak. Does it mean that Israel is "occupying Palestinian territory? No...that is just the U.N.'s opinion. In fact, there is no such state or territory or entity called "Palestine" and declarations by the U.N. can't make it so.

How bad is this for Israel? The resolution has no significance in international law, it will not cause Israel to withdraw from the territories, and it might even spur Israel to build more in the territories and Jerusalem or even extend Israeli law to parts of Judea and Samaria. (Read Rosenthal's entire riveting article to see that every attempt by Mr. Obama to "put it" to Israel is the very definition of impotence.)
What now?

Writer and editor Ruth S. King says that her "proposal for a daring act by Israel [is to] leave the United Nations. Pack up, close the Permanent Mission to the United Nations and find real jobs for all the bureaucrats, pseudo diplomats and ancillary staff."

Writer Victor Sharpe asks: Is there any light in this bleak picture? He cites Professor Barry Rubin, director of the Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center: "Israel is not going to allow a president with no credibility, who clearly doesn't understand what's at stake, fails to support his Arab allies, is soft on his Iranian and Syrian enemies, doesn't learn from his past errors, is sacrificing U.S. interests in the region, and pays no attention to what's happening in Egypt, to determine its future."
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters sums up Mr. Obama's Middle East policy quite nicely: "Praise Islam, ignore Christians, blame Jews."
It is fitting to end with the prescient words of Mark Twain (aka Samuel Clemens), the great American writer who penned the following words in 1899 in Harper's Magazine: 
"The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away. The Greek and Roman followed, made a vast noise and they are gone. Other peoples have sprung up, and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out and they sit in twilight now or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal, but the Jew. All other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality?"

RED RUSSIA, THE RED JIHAD AND ISRAEL UNDER SEIGE



December 29, 2016
Red Russia, the red jihad and Israel under siege

By Cliff Kincaid

Patrick Buchanan's provocative column, "Is Europe's future Merkel or Le Pen?", reflects a limited and bad choice for America and Europe. Both of these leaders serve Russian interests. 
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's pro-immigration policies have destabilized Europe, leading to the rise of pro-Putin right-wing political parties. Marine Le Pen of France's National Front party, one of those pro-Putin political parties, wants to destroy NATO, a long-time Russian goal.

The terrible choices facing the United States mean that we are in the biggest crisis the West has faced since World War II. 
The dilemma outlined by Patrick Buchanan means that the incoming Trump administration has to recognize that Germany, the most important country in Europe, is in the hands of a Russian agent of influence. 
Despite running as the candidate of the conservative-leaning Christian Democratic Union, Merkel has destabilized her country and much of Europe by facilitating a Muslim invasion. Her involvement in the Communist Party of East Germany, when it was a major base of Soviet espionage operations, goes a long way toward explaining her curious behavior.

In a column titled "The Suicide of Germany," Guy Millière writes, "The attack in Berlin on December 19, 2016, was predictable. German Chancellor Angela Merkel created the conditions that made it possible. She bears an overwhelming responsibility." He notes, "When she decided to open the doors of Germany to hundreds of thousands of Muslims from the Middle East and more distant countries, she must have known that jihadists were hidden among the people flooding in. 
She also must have known that the German police had no way of controlling the mass that entered and would be quickly overwhelmed by the number of people it would have to control. She did it anyway." (emphasis added)

The "she must have known" formulation is more evidence of a deliberate policy to destabilize Europe. She intends to run for re-election in 2017.

Labeled a "populist" by Buchanan, Marine Le Pen, the leading candidate for the presidency of France in 2017, talks a lot about French sovereignty but acts like a tool of Moscow. The Russia Today (RT) propaganda channel highlights her call for "closer ties with Russia" and opposition to U.S.-led NATO.


In events that have shocked the liberal media, Trump and/or his advisers have been reported to be meeting with representatives of European right-wing political parties, some of them pro-Putin.
However, Trump's national security adviser, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, has written in his own book that there is a "Russia connection" to Islamic terror networks and "many of the KGB's safe houses, station headquarters, and secure communications networks were put at the disposal of terror groups." This implicates Vladimir Putin, former officer and head of the KGB, in the conflicts that have spilled over into Europe and Israel.

Meanwhile, as commentators in the U.S. criticize the Obama administration for abstaining on the anti-Israel United Nations resolution, it is no surprise that Russia and China both voted for it. Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich did not miss the significance of this anti-Israel vote, commenting, "So Russia having illegally occupied Crimea and eastern Ukraine votes to condemn Israel for 'occupied lands.' We are supposed to be impressed." He might have mentioned China's own illegal seizures of territory.

"Russia has never ruled Israel," notes one Israeli commentator, Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz, in BreakingIsraelNews, "but the Russian Army has never stood as close to Jerusalem as it does today." Professor Efraim Inbar of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies tells the publication, "It should be remembered that Russia sides with Iran, supports Hezbollah, and even has relations with Hamas."

Turkey, a member of NATO, has since joined with Russia and Iran, the new powers in the region, for talks. It has been forced into the arms of Russia because of the Obama administration's failure to save Syria from Russian aggression that propped up an unpopular and repressive dictatorship. In truth, Obama helped accelerate the conflict when he ordered his CIA to support "rebels" against the Syrian regime that were linked to jihadist groups. They were no match for the superior Russian and Iranian forces which intervened on the side of the Syrian regime. Up to 500,000 were killed.

Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem will have symbolic value. But it does nothing to protect Israel from an attack by its regional enemies bearing Russian arms.

One way to turn the tide is to order the CIA out of the terror-supporting business and start shining the light on Russia's historical links to Islamic terrorism, known as the Red Jihad. These connections, which still exist, are not only a threat to Israel, but demonstrate that "Red Russia" is behind the immigration crisis and the Muslim invasion of Europe.

Obama is leaving the White House. His ability to damage Israel and other U.S. allies will soon end. But Putin has only just begun to fight. What's at stake is the control of Europe and the entire Middle East.

If President Trump falls for Putin's offers of a truce, the new president will demonstrate to his political enemies and even his supporters that he was in fact a dupe of the Russians.

MERKEL SAYS ISLAMIST TERRORISM IS BIGGEST TEST FOR GERMANY

Merkel says Islamist terrorism is biggest test for Germany

By Joseph Nasr
BERLIN (Reuters) - Islamist terrorism is the biggest test facing Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Saturday in a New Year's address to the nation, and vowed to introduce laws that improve security after a deadly attack before Christmas in Berlin.
Merkel, seeking a fourth term as chancellor in 2017, described 2016 as a year that gave many the impression that the world had "turned upside down". She urged Germans to shun populism and said Germany should take a leading role in addressing the many challenges facing the European Union.
"Many attach to 2016 the feeling that the world had turned upside down or that what for long had been held as an achievement is now being questioned. The European Union for example," Merkel said.
"Or equally parliamentary democracy, which allegedly is not caring for the interests of the citizens but is only serving the interests of a few. What a distortion," she said in a veiled reference to claims by the far-right party Alternative for Germany (AfD) that is stealing votes from her conservatives.
Ahead of the 2017 election, polls put her conservative bloc well ahead of rivals but a fractured electoral landscape risks complicating the coalition arithmetic.
"Election year 2017: For Merkel, nothing is certain any more", ran a headline in Saturday's edition of mass-selling daily Bild.
The paper wrote that for an increasing number of voters the chancellor, 62, no longer appeared unassailable.
ANCHOR OF STABILITY
Liberals across the Atlantic have hailed Merkel as an anchor of stability and reason in a year that saw Donald Trump elected as U.S. president, Britain vote to leave the EU and U.S-Russia relations deteriorate to Cold War levels.
In her address, Merkel compared Brexit to a "deep incision" and said that even though the EU was "slow and arduous", its member states should focus on common interests that transcend national benefits.
"And, yes, Europe should focus on what can really be better than the national state," Merkel said. "But we Germans should never be led to believe that each could have a better future by going it alone."
She was alluding again to the populist AfD, which wants Germany to leave the EU and shut its borders to asylum seekers, more than one million of whom arrived in the country this year and last.
The record number of migrants has hurt Merkel's popularity and fueled support for the AfD, which says Islam is incompatible with the German constitution. But her conservatives are still expected to win the general election in nine months.
Merkel has made security the main election platform for her Christian Democrats (CDU).
In her speech, she said the government would introduce measures to improve security after a failed Tunisian asylum seeker drove a truck into a Christmas market in the capital on Dec. 19, killing 12 people in the name of Islamic State.
He was shot dead by Italian police in Milan on Dec. 23 and investigators are trying to determine whether he had accomplices.

My comments: Merkel and Germany have already Failed the Test. Germany will Never be the same again as Islam will continue to breed Unending, Terrorism and Trouble. Until Germany and Europe acknowledge that Islam is a False and Evil Religion nothing will change.

QUEEN ELIZABETH CALLS JESUS, CHRISTIAN FAITH 'GUIDING LIGHT' IN CHRISTMAS MESSAGE

During this year's Royal Christmas message, Queen Elizabeth referred to Jesus Christ as the "guiding light" of her life and said His witness helps us to see the value of doing small things with great love.

Queen Elizabeth Calls Jesus, Christian Faith Her 'Guiding Light' in Christmas Message

Dec 29, 2016 11:43 AM EST
During this year's Royal Christmas message, Queen Elizabeth referred to Jesus Christ as the "guiding light" of her life and said His witness helps us to see the value of doing small things with great love.
According to a report from the Daily Record, the 90-year-old Queen's annual address, which aired on both the BBC and ITV , was the most-watched program on the day for the second year running with over 8 million viewers.
In her videotaped speech, released on Christmas Day, Queen Elizabeth said, "When people face a challenge, they sometimes talk about taking a deep breath to find courage or strength. In fact, the word ‘inspire' literally means ‘to breathe in.' But even with the inspiration of others, it's understandable that we sometimes think the world's problems are so big that we can do little to help."
"On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe out injustice, but the cumulative impact of thousands of small acts of goodness can be bigger than we imagine," said the Queen. "At Christmas, our attention is drawn to the birth of a baby some two thousand years ago. It was the humblest of beginnings, and his parents, Joseph and Mary, did not think they were important."
"Jesus Christ lived obscurely for most of his life, and never traveled far," she continued. "He was maligned and rejected by many, though he had done no wrong. And yet, billions of people now follow his teaching and find in him the guiding light for their lives. I am one of them because Christ's example helps me see the value of doing small things with great love, whoever does them and whatever they themselves believe."
She concluded: "The message of Christmas reminds us that inspiration is a gift to be given as well as received, and that love begins small but always grows."
Elizabeth II, the longest-ruling monarch in British history, is the Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. She is also the Head of the Commonwealth of 12 formerly British colonies, including Jamaica, the Bahamas, Belize and Saint Kitts. She did not attend church on Christmas Day for the first time in nearly 30 years, as she is still suffering from a heavy cold, according to a Buckingham Palace spokesman.
Last year, the Queen used her speech to draw attention to the plight of persecuted Christians worldwide. She pointed out, however, that such "moments of darkness" should not be reasons to become hopeless, for "the Gospel of John contains a verse of great hope... 'Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.'"
Elizabeth also said that there is no better time than Christmas to be thankful for people who give hope to others. "Millions of people are lighting candles of hope in our world today. "Christmas is a good time to be thankful for them and for all that bring light to our lives."

FRANKLIN GRAHAM, PAULA WHITE 'HONORED', 'PRIVILEGED' TO PARTICIPATE IN TRUMP INAUGURATION

Evangelists Franklin Graham and Paula White have issued statements in response to their announced participation in the inauguration ceremony for President-elect Donald Trump and Mike Pence next month.

Franklin Graham, Paula White 'Honored', 'Privileged' to Participate in Trump Inauguration

Dec 29, 2016 09:26 AM EST
Evangelists Franklin Graham and Paula White have issued statements in response to their announced participation in the inauguration ceremony for President-elect Donald Trump and Mike Pence next month.
In a statement issued Wednesday, White, who is Chairwoman of the Trump Evangelical Advisory Board, said she is "deeply honored and grateful" to participate in the swearing in of Trump and Pence.
"In American history Inauguration Day is one of the most sacred and important celebrations we have as a people, not only because it signifies the peaceful transition of power but also because on this day 'We The People' appeal to the favor, blessing and guidance of God on our country, on our people and on our new leadership," she wrote.
The evangelist, who is also pastor of the New Destiny Christian Center in Florida, continued: "I will be humbled to stand shoulder to shoulder on stage with the new administration, other distinguished men and women of faith, and with the great sea of witnesses watching around the country and around the world who continue to pray for God to bless America. On that sacred day, we will ask God to guide our leaders with wisdom and strength and that He would richly bless our extraordinary home, the United States of America."
Prior to Trump's poll-defying win, White told The Christian Post: "Too many Christians have spent way too much time judging Mr. Trump and his relationship with Christ...I've had countless conversations with Donald Trump about the Bible. In fact, I met him because he watches Christian television and he was moved by one of my sermons: 'The Value of Vision.'"
Meanwhile, evangelist Franklin Graham, who will reportedly pray over the January 20th ceremony, said it is a "privilege" to take part in Trump's inauguration.
"I am very thankful that prayer and reading from God's Holy Word will be a part of this important ceremony as the world watches," he wrote. "We need God's blessing and favor on this nation and our new president, Donald J. Trump. I'm praying for that--will you?"
Other religious leaders participating in the ceremony include the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson of Great Faith Ministries International and Rabbi Marvin Hier, dean and founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
Tom Barrack, the Presidential Inaugural Committee chairman, said in a statement that our "leaders have paid tribute to the blessings of liberty that have been bestowed upon our country and its people" since the first inaugural ceremony.
"I am pleased to announce that a diverse set of faith leaders will offer readings and prayers," he said, adding that the leaders would "honor the vital role religious faith plays in our multicultural, vibrant nation."
