Obama Fortuna

I am tired of having to COPE and CRINGE every time I hear “HOPE AND CHANGE.”

This has become more than just a campaign slogan from the opposition. It has become a klaxon, a red alert, a call to arms. In fact, every time I hear Barack Hussein Obama speak, I seem to always hear, loud and clear, the O Fortuna movement from Orff’s Carmina Burana.

Its ominously emotional tones seem to perfectly go with the words BHO speaks at his rallies. I really became concerned since the piece was based on 13th century manuscript collection by clergy and students who wrote it to satirize the church. Did I mention that it was composed in 1930s Germany?

Click play to the video below and listen (you’ll recognize it after a few moments):

The following is an English translation of the lyrics of O Fortuna. Click play again and read while you listen:

O Fortune,
like the moon
you are constantly changing,
ever growing
and waning;
hateful life
now oppresses
and then soothes
as fancy takes it;
and power
it melts them like ice.

Fate - monstrous
and empty,
you whirling wheel,
you are malevolent,
well-being is vain
and always fades to nothing,
and veiled
you plague me too;
now through the game
I bring my bare back
to your villainy.

Fate, in health
and virtue,
is against me
driven on
and weighted down,
always enslaved.
So at this hour
without delay
pluck the vibrating strings;
since Fate
strikes down the strong man,
everyone weep with me!

You can very easily hear liberty being smothered in those words. They are a very appropriate homage to what Obama really stands for.

Obama places himself in the light as a deity of destiny. Yet like the goddess of fate, Obama is seen as a symbol of blessing to some and one of capricious demagoguery to others.

The evidence is in how each of us hears the following quote from Obama: "I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions."

What is it that self-induces a monolithic epidemic of his highness’ perceived worth to the people of this nation? Who else spoke like this in history?

King Saul, Nero, Mehmed II, Ivan, Napoleon… and of course, Adolph Hitler.

And like those incarnates of evil, Barack Hussein Obama will DEMAND your money, your service, and your freedoms while commanding your love, your intellect, and your unswervingly blind devotion.

All you have to do is look at the droves of followers he draws. They remind me of the religious fanatics who refuse to think for themselves in Monty Python’s Life of Brian. They latch on to a person rather than ideal.

And that is the danger.

The issues are again ignored in favor of an idol. It seems that more and more people tend to think that as long as the idol gets the go ahead, the issues will be resolved. The only time that happens is in totalitarian governments. And the result was the lsot of liberty and even life for the citizenry.

Look at the greatness that America is. Has there ever been a time when our nation’s success has been affected by ANYTHING Obama and the current democratic leadership is touting?

This great country has again and again risen to greatness because of how its people deal with the issues of the respective times. From our struggle for independence to the Civil War and into the unknown of manifest destiny, it has been about how individuals mattered to the greater good. Even the semi-socialist, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, knew that it was about the people and the circumstances they faced and not himself. And it was the people of this nation that rose up to agonizingly overcome the great depression or sacrificed in commitment to helping defeat fascism in World War Two. Even though I, along with my fellow conservatives, repeatedly reminisce about how great Ronald Wilson Reagan was, it wasn’t because of whom he was inasmuch as it was about how he motivated (NOT INSPIRED) action among us to take responsibility for what America needed from us. Today’s democrats seem to forget what one of their own promulgated; “As not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!”

Obama and his liberal contemporaries not only want you to look to the government for all your answers but want to make sure that you will not have any other resource to access….including yourself.

As you can tell, I have not spent this time promoting John McCain. I have been trying to convey to you the utter disaster Obama would be for our nation. I sincerely long for you to hear that klaxon of danger like I do.

Call him what you will – Obamanation, Obamanable, Czarbama, Obamaramalamadingdong – he represents a clear and present danger to the future of this country. He wants each American to cut back on personal luxuries and even needs. We are to turn down our heaters in winter and turn the thermostat up during summer. We are to inflate our tires more to save gas. We are to control our eating habits. These things seem to be common sense to most of us. But we usually do them on our own terms under our own discretion. Once Barry boy gets into the presidential residence (You know he’ll change the name of the building), those will be things that will be mandatory and we will suffer fines and punishment if we don’t. Obama wants a national civilian security force that will be just as strong and powerful as our current armed forces. And you know service in this will be mandatory as well.

The last time stuff like this was done in the world, the language spoken was GERMAN!

Make no mistake. An Obama administration will be the first step to fascism and a nation of obsolete men.

If you can’t vote FOR McCain, please, please vote AGAINST Obama.

The Anointed One

I do not know who originally wrote this....but...well... read and you know why I posted it.

The Anointed One

He ventured forth to bring light to the world. The anointed one's pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a miracle in action - and a blessing to all his faithful followers.

Gerard Baker
And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid barren, that a Child appeared in the wilderness.

The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, grandson of a typical white person and an African peasant. And yea, as he grew, the Child walked in the path of righteousness, with only the occasional detour into the odd weed and a little blow.

When he was twelve years old, they found him in the temple in the City of Chicago, arguing the finer points of community organization with the Prophet Jeremiah and the Elders. And the Elders were astonished at what they heard and said among themselves: “Verily, who is this Child that he opens our hearts and minds to the audacity of hope?”

In the great Battles of Caucus and Primary he smote the conniving Hillary, wife of the deposed King Bill the Priapic and their barbarian hordes of Working Class Whites.

And so it was, in the fullness of time, before the harvest month of the appointed year, the Child ventured forth - for the first time - to bring the light unto all the world.
He travelled fleet of foot and light of camel, with a small retinue that consisted only of his loyal disciples from the tribe of the Media. He ventured first to the land of the Hindu Kush, where the Taliban had harboured the viper of al-Qaeda in their bosom, raining terror on all the world. And the Child spake and the tribes of NATO immediately loosed the Caveats that had previously bound them. And in the great battle that ensued the forces of the light were triumphant. For as long as the Child stood with his arms raised aloft, the enemy suffered great blows and the threat of terror was no more.

From there he went forth to Mesopotamia where he was received by the great ruler al-Maliki, and al-Maliki spake unto him and blessed his Sixteen Month Troop Withdrawal Plan even as the imperial warrior Petraeus tried to destroy it.
And lo, in Mesopotamia, a miracle occurred. Even though the Great Surge of Armour that the evil Bush had ordered had been a terrible mistake, a waste of vital military resources and doomed to end in disaster, the Child's very presence suddenly brought forth a great victory for the forces of the light. And the Persians, who saw all this and were greatly fearful, longed to speak with the Child and saw that the Child was the bringer of peace. At the mention of his name they quickly laid aside their intrigues and beat their uranium swords into civil nuclear energy ploughshares.

From there the Child went up to the city of Jerusalem, and entered through the gate seated on an ass. The crowds of network anchors who had followed him from afar cheered “Hosanna” and waved great palm fronds and strewed them at his feet.

In Jerusalem and in surrounding Palestine, the Child spake to the Hebrews and the Arabs, as the Scripture had foretold.
And in an instant, the lion lay down with the lamb, and the Israelites and Ishmaelites ended their long enmity and lived forever after in peace. As word spread throughout the land about the Child's wondrous works, peoples from all over flocked to hear him; Hittites and Abbasids; Obamacons and McCainiacs; Cameroonians and Blairites. And they told of strange and wondrous things that greeted the news of the Child's journey. Around the world, global temperatures began to decline, and the ocean levels fell and the great warming was over.

The Great Prophet Algore of Nobel and Oscar, who many had believed was the anointed one, smiled and told his followers that the Child was the one generations had been waiting for.
And there were other wonderful signs. In the city of the Street at the Wall, spreads on interbank interest rates dropped like manna from Heaven and rates on credit default swaps fell to the ground as dead birds from the almond tree, and the people who had lived in foreclosure were able to borrow again.

Black gold gushed from the ground at prices well below $140 per barrel. In hospitals across the land the sick were cured even though they were uninsured. And all because the Child had pronounced it. And this is the testimony of one who speaks the truth and bears witness to the truth so that you might believe. And he knows it is the truth for he saw it all on CNN and the BBC and in the pages of The New York Times.

Then the Child ventured forth from Israel and Palestine and stepped onto the shores of the Old Continent. In the land of Queen Angela of Merkel, vast multitudes gathered to hear his voice, and he preached to them at length. But when he had finished speaking his disciples told him the crowd was hungry, for they had had nothing to eat all the hours they had waited for him.

And so the Child told his disciples to fetch some food but all they had was five loaves and a couple of frankfurters. So he took the bread and the frankfurters and blessed them and told his disciples to feed the multitudes. And when all had eaten their fill, the scraps filled twelve baskets.

Thence he travelled west to Mount Sarkozy. Even the beauteous Princess Carla of the tribe of the Bruni was struck by awe and she was great in love with the Child, but he was tempted not. On the Seventh Day he walked across the Channel of the Angles to the ancient land of the hooligans. There he was welcomed with open arms by the once great prophet Blair and his successor, Gordon the Leper, and his successor, David the Golden One.

And suddenly, with the men appeared the archangel Gabriel and the whole host of the heavenly choir, ranks of cherubim and seraphim, all praising God and singing: “Yes, We Can.”

The Garden of Allah

"The Garden of Allah" is a new song on Don Henley’s greatest hit disc Actual Miles: Henley's Greatest Hits. I came out in 1995 and is presented as a modern-day tale where Satan, presumably visiting the site of the Garden of Allah resort in West Hollywood, California, discovers he has become superfluous and obsolete. Mankind has perfected evil and no longer needs his help to promulgate it.

The hotel doesn’t get it’s name from the god of islam, but rather from an openly lesbian actress named Alla Nazimova who was the original owner. It became notorious for the wild parties allegedly held there by Nazimova.

The Garden of Allah became home to many celebrities and literary figures including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Robert Benchley, Aldus Huxley, and Sheilah Graham who wrote a book about the place.

In spite of the fact that it was among the landmark buildings of the west side of Los Angeles, it was torn down in June 1959 and replaced by a bank.

You can find out more about the hotel resort here

The lyrics of the song have become quite prophetic as we look at our national society today.

“The Garden of Allah” by Don Henley
(Satan’s words in quotes)

It was a pretty big year for fashion
A lousy year for rock and roll
The people gave their blessings to crimes of passion
It was a dark, dark night of the collective soul
I was somewhere out on Riverside
By the El Royale Hotel
When a stranger appeared in a cloud of smoke
I thought I knew him all too well

He said "Now that I have your attention
I got somethin' I wanna say
You may not want to hear it
I'm gonna tell it to you anyway
You know, I've always liked you, boy
'Cause you were not afraid of me
But things are gonna get mighty rough
Here in Gomorrah-By-The-Sea"

He said "It's just like home
It's so damn hot, I can't stand it
My fine seersucker suit is all soakin' wet"

And all the hills are burning
The wind is raging
And the clock strikes midnight
In the Garden of Allah

"Nice car.........
I love those meticulous
Y'know, I remember a time when things were a lot more
Fun around here
When good was good, and evil was evil
Before things got so.........fuzzy
I was once a golden boy like you
And I was summoned to the halls of power in the heavenly court
And I dined with the deities who looked upon me with favor
For my talents; my creativity
And we sat beneath the palms in the warm afternoons
And drank the wine with Fitzgerald and Huxley

And They pawned a biting phrase
From tongues hot with blood
And drained their pens of bitter ink
Vainly reaching for the bottle full of empty Edens
Branded especially for the ones
Who had come with great expectations
To the perfumed halls of Allah
For their time in the sun”

We were stokin' the fires
And oilin' up the machinery
Until the gods found out we had ideas of our own

And the war was coming
The earth was shaking
And there was no more room
In the Garden of Allah

"Today I made an appearance downtown
I am an expert witness, because I say I am
And I said, 'Gentleman....and I use that word loosely....
I will testify for you
I'm a gun for hire, I'm a saint, I'm a liar
Because there are no facts, there is no truth
Just data to be manipulated
I can get any result you like
What's it worth to ya?
Because there is no wrong, there is no right
And I sleep very well at night
No shame, no solution
No remorse, no retribution
Just people selling T-shirts
Just opportunity to participate in the pathetic little circus
And winning… winning… winning…"

It was a pretty big year for predators
The marketplace was on a roll
And the land of opportunity
Spawned a whole new breed of men without souls
This year, notoriety got all confused with fame
And the devil is downhearted
Because there's nothing left for him to claim

He said "It's just like home
It's so low-down, I can't stand it
I guess my work around here has all been done"

And the fruit is rotten
The serpent's eyes shine
As he wraps around the vine
In the Garden of Allah

There used to be a time when good was good and evil was evil and we ALL knew where it could be easily defined. But since radical judges have allowed the rule of law to become “fuzzy,” people have learned to rely on their own understanding of good and evil.

Furthermore, as long as people in today’s society can make money off of anything without having to face the moral and ethical ramifications, then society will continue to decline.

What do we do?
First, pray to God for His guidance and be sure to live a life that glorifies Him.
Second, don’t buy into what the world deems as right. Set a standard for yourself and those around you that raises the bar so you don’t get sucked into that mire of degradation.
Third, get involved in the political process. Be sure to promote and vote for candidates who live and work with a duty to morality. AND THEN BE SURE TO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE TO THAT STANDARD!

At the 1982 World’s fair, Ronald Reagan said it best with, “Our principles have not failed us. Too many times, we have failed to live up to our principles.”

It’s time for us to strive to reach and live up to those principles that make this country great and refuse to acquiesce to the lowest common denominator simply because it’s the simplest thing to do.

We ALL have to strive to make the devil work harder.

You can watch a poor quality version of Henley’s video for the song here

The Obama Jedi Mind Trick

From FDR to JFK to JSM

This is an appeal to Roosevelt Democrats. I feel I can address you all because I am descendent of some.

My point here is not to convince you to change parties or sway your loyalties, but to really motivate you to vote for someone like the one you idolize.

Let’s face it, folks. If you vote for John McCain this year, you’re going to get another Rooseveltesque president.

After all John McCain is very liberal on so many issues, he might as well have that long cigarette holder and haughty upper crust accent. Another thing that McCain and Roosevelt have in common is their love for America and democracy.

Roosevelt led this nation out of the Great Depression and through part of WWII. He made decisions and did what had to be done to stop fascism and tyranny in the world.

And even though I disagree with John McCain on so many issues, I do strongly believe this: John McCain will a president who will take the security of this nation as a top priority. He will be a commander-in-chief who will insure that America won’t be overrun by the recent trend of Marxist and Socialist politics around the world.

So, all you Rooseveltoids, why would you pass up an opportunity to vote for someone who, according to facts, exemplifies a combination of FDR and JFK? Don’t miss out on voting for JSM simply because you see an extra R with his name. We all know that letter doesn’t mean anything anyway. It’s about as useful as brail touch keys at a drive thru ATM.

Seriously, if McCain wins, you will be getting a democrat in office anyway. If you do vote for Obama, and he wins, you will have voted for someone that FDR and JFK would have done everything possible to stop in his Marxist tracks.

Since most of you probably don’t have cable TV and only get your news from the main networks, you probably get the daily swill of Obama Kool-aid and never really get to hear the objective truth about how he really is ready to be the leader of the free world.


That has a different ring to it today. And if you are able to really reason this out, you’ll understand that you cannot associate that title with Barack Obama. There is no way he is ready to carry that mantle. And I know understand that a president would face the issues of the world from a new perspective in the oval office, but Obama has no comprehension of considering that old standard of truth, justice and the American way.

So, if you are a Rooseveltian or know someone who is, really consider that McCain is one of your own when you step into the voting booth this November. And please spread the news.

No doubt...they're in love

Now excuse me while I puke!

White Dwarfs are Just as Important as Normal Stars

Eating Devil’s Food Cake in White Plains Under a Blue Moon is Just a Red Herring for Those Who are Green With Envy or Yellow With Fear.

I realize that not everybody is tone-deaf, color-blind, odor-free or taste-free, but right now I think this nation has become one where people are just dumb-struck with tactile sensitivity.

This PC junk is just plain getting out of hand and I for one am totally sick of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Look Commissioner John Wiley Price, I think you crossed the line on this one. The “black hole” comment might have been something to pursue outside of the meeting it was stated. However, to bring up ethnicity in terms of food and animals is absolutely moronic!

Dude, you have got to get over yourself because I love devil’s food cake, black eyed peas, black beans and rice, blackened chicken, brown gravy, etc. And I am not going to change my opinion of them, nor am I going to call them something different.

As far as devil’s food cake being black, don’t be stupid. Similar to red velvet cake, it’s a chocolate butter cake made with baking soda. When used in cakes, baking soda causes reddening of cocoa powder when baked. And the name actually comes from it being a sinfully delicious indulgence… not its color.

Surely, you have MSN where no one wants to be dumb, or maybe you need to stay at a Holiday Inn Express.

I realize that black has been used negatively to describe Africans and their descendents. But as long as you continue to make a big deal about it, you in essence become a racist yourself.

And what about black power or black pride? Are those supposed to be negative connotations now?

There are people who have lost EVERYTHING they have because of flooding or fires or whatever and you are worried about the name of an astronomical term?

There is a war on terror that we desperately need to win and you are worried about why certain foods are called certain things?

Gas prices are through the roof and you are worried about a recessive genetic trait in sheep?

I wonder if the business that the Dallas taxpayers entrusted you with that day was dealt with or maybe you didn’t have or get what you wanted and decided to play the ace of spades and trump the business of the day with your politically correct agenda. After all, stopping the meeting to complain about words and then demanding and unwarranted apology didn’t do ONE SINGLE THING for the best interest of the people of Dallas.

I truly hope your constituents remove you from office soon!

God's Three Deadlines

The original video sermon this is from is by J. Harold Smith and it is called “God’s Three deadlines. You can download the video here.

It’s currently the 4th item on the list.

To view it, you will need the RealPlayer.

God’s Three Deadlines
Paraphrased and condensed from J. Harold Smith

The other day I was blessed to hear a sermon that is reported to have the most conversions to Christ than any other sermon in the modern age… even more than any sermon by Billy Graham. As I watched and listened, I became overwhelmed with getting this message out. There is no way my words can fully convey the message in the video linked above, so I do strongly encourage you to spend the time and let God reach you through the message.

The following are, the bible verses referenced, some of my notes, and my opinions and interpretations.

The deadlines:
1. The Unpardonable Sin (Blaspheming against the Holy Spirit)
2. Sinning away your day of grace
3. The sin unto death

An unsaved sinner can only cross the first two deadlines and the third deadline can only be crossed by a saved Christian.

1. Blasphemy Against the Holy Spirit
Then a demon-oppressed man who was blind and mute was brought to him, and [Jesus] healed him, so that the man spoke and saw. And all the people were amazed, and said, "Can this be the Son of David?" But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, "It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this man casts out demons." Knowing their thoughts, he said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand. And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? And if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. But if it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. Or how can someone enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? Then indeed he may plunder his house. Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come. - Matthew 12:22-32

And the tongue is a flame of fire. It is a whole world of wickedness, corrupting your entire body. It can set your whole life on fire, for it is set on fire by hell itself. - James 3:6

Therefore, an unsaved person’s tongue, which is controlled by hell, can cause a sin that WILL NEVER BE FORGIVEN.

Basically, in context, these two verses mean that to deny the involvement and power of the Holy Spirit and to give that credit to the devil is unforgivable for all time and you will be damned to hell forever. It won’t be forgiven by the ONLY one who can forgive everything.

Speaking against the power of the Holy Spirit is an unpardonable sin. This includes speaking against those who are filled with the Holy Spirit or who do things in God’s name. And don’t worry, if someone is usurping God’s name to promote himself or to do evil, God will provide justice. Read Numbers 16 for the full account of the rebellion against God’s chosen man, Moses, and what God did to those who spoke out against His chosen one.

And Moses said, “This is how you will know that the LORD has sent me to do all these things that I have done—for I have not done them on my own. If these men die a natural death, or if nothing unusual happens, then the LORD has not sent me. But if the LORD does something entirely new and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them and all their belongings, and they go down alive into the grave, then you will know that these men have shown contempt for the LORD.” - Numbers 16:28-30

And if you read the entire chapter, you will find out that Moses was exactly right and God did put to death those who blasphemed the Holy Spirit. In fact, in the bible and even in the modern world, whenever this unpardonable sin has been committed, the offender has never lived beyond 24 hours of committing it.

2. Sinning away your day of grace

HE WHO, being often reproved, hardens his neck shall suddenly be destroyed--and that without remedy. - Proverbs 29:1

In other words, when presented with the good news of Jesus Christ, if you deny it and do not receive God’s grace through Jesus Christ, you will end up in hell when you die. There are those who say that God will hold true to the unsaved and continue to provide them with chances and eventually provide salvation. But Proverbs 29:1 refutes that, as does Romans 2:5-8.

Every refusal and avoidance of God adds fuel to the fire. The day is coming when it's going to blaze hot and high, God's fiery and righteous judgment. Make no mistake: In the end you get what's coming to you—Real Life for those who work on God's side, but to those who insist on getting their own way and take the path of least resistance, Fire! – Romans 2:5-8

So many people think it is simply a matter of living how they want to live and then waiting to make that decision when they get older. You may want to wait for God, but what if God won’t wait for you. It will be too late and once condemned to hell, that is it!

You may not get the chance to repent and receive Christ’s gift in your own time. God may just lose patience with you and end your life. Perhaps you don’t think He would do such a thing. Wrong! Read Genesis 38:7 to see how God killed a man who was wicked. Read Acts 5:1-10 to see how He killed a husband and wife because they told a lie. He lost patience with them. Most people think that God’s patience is eternal. It evidently is not. The Bible says that it is through the fear of the Lord that men depart from sin (Proverbs 16:6). If they don’t fear God, they will be complacent about their eternal salvation.

Look at examples from the bible regarding those who refused Christ.

A rich, young ruler even asked Jesus what he had to do to be saved. When Jesus told him, the man refused to accept it and is in hell:
Someone came to Jesus with this question: “Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?” “Why ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. But to answer your question—if you want to receive eternal life, keep the commandments.” “Which ones?” the man asked. And Jesus replied: “‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. Honor your father and mother. Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “I’ve obeyed all these commandments,” the young man replied. “What else must I do?” Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” But when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

Paul witnessed to Agrippa and the king turned away from the gift of salvation and is in hell:
“The king is familiar with these things. So I can speak openly to him. I am certain he knows everything that has been going on. After all, it was not done in secret. King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know you do.” Then Agrippa spoke to Paul. "Are you trying to talk me into becoming a Christian?" he said. "Do you think you can do that in such a short time?" Paul replied, "I don't care if it takes a short time or a long time. I pray to God for you and all who are listening to me today. I pray that you may become like me.” - Acts 26:26-29

Another great example of this is the parable of the rich fool:
Then Jesus told them a story. He said, “A certain rich man's land produced a good crop. He thought to himself, 'What should I do? I don't have any place to store my crops.'” “Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my storerooms and build bigger ones. I will store all my grain and my other things in them. I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things stored away for many years. Take life easy. Eat, drink and have a good time."' "But God said to him, 'You foolish man! This very night I will take your life away from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?' "That is how it will be for anyone who stores things away for himself but is not rich in God's eyes."

Those who say they will repent in their own time lack the fear of God. Their understanding of His nature is erroneous. If they caught a glimpse of His holiness, His righteousness, and His consuming justice, they wouldn’t trifle with His mercy. Such arrogance needs to be confronted with the thunders of Mount Sinai.

If you die in your sins without receiving the gift of grace through Christ, you will go to hell. So if someone comes along and tells you about what Jesus did for you and you ignore or refuse it, God will remove you from His prayer list. So don’t squander it.

3. The sin unto death

Only a saved believer can commit this sin.

If you see a Christian brother or sister sinning in a way that does not lead to death, you should pray, and God will give that person life. But there is a sin that leads to death, and I am not saying you should pray for those who commit it. - 1 John 5:16

John MacArthur explains it best:
“John illustrates praying according to God’s will with the specific example of the “sin leading to death.” Such a sin could be any premeditated and unconfessed sin that causes the Lord to determine to end a believer’s life. It is not one particular sin like homosexuality or lying, but whatever sin is the final one in the tolerance of God. Failure to repent of and forsake sin may eventually lead to physical death as a judgment of God. No intercessory prayer will be effective for those who have committed such deliberate high-handed sin, i.e., God’s discipline with physical death is inevitable in such cases as He seeks to preserve the purity of His church. The contrast to the phrase “there is sin leading to death” with “there is sin not leading to death” signifies that the writer distinguishes between sins that may lead to physical death and those that do not. That is not to identify a certain kind of mortal or non-mortal sin, but to say not all sins are so judged by God.”

In essence, if a saved believer breaks the commandment about lying, then another believer can pray for the first Christian and Jesus will intercede. However, if a Christian has a sin that he or she has not confessed to God, then no amount of praying from another Christian will matter or help. It will not get anyone unsaved but the offender will enter heaven with shame of not having reward to glorify God with. Furthermore, God says He will kill (from the physical life) the Christian for having this sin.

“I brought hunger to every city and famine to every town. But still you would not return to me,” says the LORD.
“I kept the rain from falling when your crops needed it the most. I sent rain on one town but withheld it from another. Rain fell on one field, while another field withered away. People staggered from town to town looking for water, but there was never enough. But still you would not return to me,” says the LORD.
“I struck your farms and vineyards with blight and mildew. Locusts devoured all your fig and olive trees. But still you would not return to me,” says the LORD.
“I sent plagues on you like the plagues I sent on Egypt long ago. I killed your young men in war and led all your horses away. The stench of death filled the air! But still you would not return to me,” says the LORD.
“I destroyed some of your cities, as I destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Those of you who survived were like charred sticks pulled from a fire. But still you would not return to me,” says the LORD.
“Therefore, I will bring upon you all the disasters I have announced. Prepare to meet your God in judgment, you people of Israel!” - Amos 4:6-12

God has made every attempt to stir you up to meet Him. But when you try to hide what’s in your heart, which God knows anyway, you are basically telling Him that you can handle something and don’t need Him. Therefore, God will physically take you from this world so that He can deal with you and your shame in His house and in His way.

In conclusion, if you are unsaved, turn away from your lying, hate, lust, etc. and put your focus and trust in Jesus as the only one who can make you clean before God. Ask Him for forgiveness and truly appreciate what He did by dying on the cross for your sins… to pay the price so you wouldn’t have to. Don’t turn away from this opportunity right now to know for sure that you will have eternal life.

If you are saved, get on your knees right now and confess any sin that you may be holding back. God already knows about it anyway. You don’t have to tell any person. This is between you and God only and He can and will forgive what you confess to Him. But do it now!

I pray that God alone will be glorified through anything these words convey and that He will reach the lost and they will come into His fold.

Tony Snow - 1955-2008


Tony Snow, the former White House press secretary and conservative pundit who bedeviled the press corps and charmed millions as a FOX News television and radio host, has died after a long bout with cancer. He was 53.

A syndicated columnist, editor, TV anchor, radio show host and musician, Snow worked in nearly every medium in a career that spanned more than 30 years.

Tony Snow.  That's what she said!

"The White House has lost a great friend and a great colleague," said President Bush's press secretary Dana Perino. "We all loved watching him at the podium, but most of all we learned how to love our families and treat each other."

Snow joined FOX in 1996 as the original anchor of "FOX News Sunday" and hosted "Weekend Live" and a radio program, "The Tony Snow Show," before departing in 2006. A sometime fill-in host for Rush Limbaugh, Snow said he loved the intimacy of his radio audience.

"It's a tremendous loss for us who knew him, but it's also a loss for the country," Roger Ailes, chairman of FOX News, said Saturday morning about Snow, calling him a "renaissance man."

As a TV pundit and commentator for FOX News, Snow was often critical of President Bush before he became Bush's third press secretary in 2006, following Ari Fleischer and Scott McClellan. He was an instant study in the job, mastering the position — and the White House press corps — with apparent ease.

During a tenure marked by friendly jousting with journalists, Snow often danced around the press corps, occasionally correcting their grammar and speech even as he responded to their questions.

"Tony did his job with more flair than almost any press secretary before him," said William McGurn, Bush's former chief speechwriter. "He loved the give-and-take. But that was possible only because Tony was a man of substance who had real beliefs and principles that he was more than able to defend."

As he announced Snow as his new press secretary in 2006, President Bush praised him as "a man of courage [and] a man of integrity." Snow presided over some of the toughest fights of Bush's presidency, defending the administration during the Iraq war and the CIA leak investigation.

Robert Anthony Snow was born June 1, 1955, in Berea, Ky., the son of a teacher and nurse. He graduated from Davidson College in 1977 with a bachelor's degree in philosophy, and he taught briefly in Kenya before embarking on his career as a journalist.

Because of his love for writing, Snow took a job as an editorial writer for the Greensboro Record in North Carolina and went on to run the editorial pages at the Newport News (Virginia) Daily Press, Detroit News and Washington Times. He became a nationally syndicated columnist, and in 1991 he became director of speechwriting for President George H.W. Bush.

Snow had his colon removed and underwent six months of chemotherapy after he was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2005. In 2007, he announced that his cancer had recurred and spread to his liver. He resigned from the White House weeks later and was replaced by his deputy, Dana Perino.

After taking time off to recuperate, Snow joined CNN as a conservative political correspondent early this year.
Snow is survived by his wife, Jill Ellen Walker, whom he married in 1987, and their son, Robbie, and daughters, Kendell and Christie.

On a personal note:

Tony Snow is a hero of mine. His life was one that showed all the positives of living…even when he was fighting cancer! My heart goes out to his family as I pray that God will give them strength to endure this great loss. The world is a far better place because of Tony Snow.

It’s Barack Obama….That’s why!

I called in and debated with Eeevil Conservative and Sonlit, among others who are right touting the lack of qualifications of John McCain.

They are saying that McCain is not worthy of the GOP’s conservative base voters. And that we conservatives need to stand up and take a stand against the liberal trend in the GOP and especially the left leaning McCain. As they say, we should stop tolerating candidates who are just acceptably above the democrat and nominate candidates who represent what we want as conservatives. They think that it would be tolerable if Obama got elected to prove the point to Americans that the status quo or Marxist lefting of our government is not what this country needs and that it would lead to another Reaganesque candidate winning a future general election that would set this country right again.



We’re not talking about doing this during a peace time where the threat to American security is either minor or under the Mutually Assured Destruction deterrent of the Cold War. We are also not talking about a democratic candidate like Mondale, Hart, Gebhardt, Bradley, Kerry, Edwards or even Gore.

Were talking about a time when American security and prosperity are at the precipice of remaining strong or falling to the whims of the most liberal senator on record should he become president.

This is Barack Hussein Obama we’re really talking about. And no matter how dismally unsatisfactory we find John McCain, there is too much at stake in the safety and security of American lives to allow the elections of a terrible Marxist in as president to prove a point.

There are comparisons between Obama and former calamity-in-chief, James Earl Carter. And based on Carter’s loose lips as of late, I can see why. Carter was an unequivocal failure as president with no true legacy of anything positive. And all he did was facilitate the Israel-Egypt thing. The leaders of those two countries knew that they had to meet somewhere in order to provide peace and security for their respective peoples. Carter was just the guy who brought them here to talk.

There is one comparison, however, between Obama and Carter that just doesn’t match up. Carter got elected for no other reason than he wasn’t a republican. He was unknown and had a nice smile. The election of 1976 saw voters enter the voting booth with Watergate still fresh in their minds. And as I recall, Reagan did run in that election as well. And how did her do? Republicans were still seen and crooks, cheats and liars in the minds of a media fed populace. And if you believe the media of today, a media without integrity or impartiality, Obama will be the better president because McCain is going to be another Bush.

Me, personally, when compared to Obama, I’ll take a continuation of Bush…especially when it comes to protecting the American people on American soil! To me, proving the point to the voters that a left leaning government is a bad thing should not be at the risk of the very lives of those voters.

I truly believe that, based on what he has promised to do, Obama will do anything and everything he can to diminish and even destroy American sovereignty and security to a point that may be unrecoverable. I do NOT believe the “vote wanting” positions of the general election candidate. I DO believe that guy who ran in the primaries as the messiah of the far left. And this is based on who this guy really is.

McCain IS a terrible choice to be president….without a doubt, but he IS a candidate with whom conservative voters can work to assuage into a more traditionally conservative method of leadership. Obama, the true Obama would show who he really is as president: a man who was raised with the teachings of Islam, a man who was mentored by Marxists. a man who thinks that evil dictators can be convinced to behave, a man whose voting record is rated as the most liberal in American history.

In other words, in the world as it is now, a vote for a third party candidate or not voting at all may send a message to Republicans that they need to change their evil ways and embrace the conservative tenets that this country does need. But those voting choices would essentially also be an immediate and resounding vote:
- FOR Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-il, and Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías
- FOR abortion on demand, the eradication of traditional marriage, and the elimination of freedom of religion
- FOR a weak national security and defense
- FOR a healthcare system that will kill more people that it will truly and fully help
- FOR further American dependence of other nations for energy and resources and a cessation to utilizing the guaranteed resources we already have.
- FOR a maliciously permanent change in the right to bear arms guaranteed by the 2nd amendment
- FOR the fairness doctrine
- FOR a realistic resurgence of communism as a potential form of government in this country

John McCain does lean to the left and his record does show that. However, he also DOES understand executive leadership by the constraints of the Constitution. McCain DOES have a proven understanding of what it means to act as commander-n-chief. McCain DOES believe that a republican form of government is the best hope for America. McCain DOES understand the need to have a Supreme Court that will not legislate from the bench.

Like him or not, want him or not. McCain is still a far better choice than risking the loss of America by electing a candidate who has promised to destroy it by his proposed executive decisions.

I will promote, along with Eeevil and Sonlit, that we have to educate voters to the truth and need of conservatism. And that we need to reach the leaders and elected officials who claim to be republican and let them know that we will no longer tolerate the lefting of America. I urge you to call your GOP leaders at every level of American government and tell them that they have to earn your vote by embracing conservative values and positions in the jobs they do.

Eeevil Conservative and Sonlit, you both are exactly correct in your position. But your timing is just wrong in the world we live in right now.

Of Morality and the Conscience

There have been two major news reports relevant to the issue of morality that have really bothered me as of late.

One story comes from the Czech Republic where two young boys, ages 8 & 10, testified before a court that they were abused and cannibalized. According to the boys, they were locked up in cages, handcuffed, burned with cigarettes, sexually abused and had their flesh hacked of and eaten by their own mother. Police and court officials were horrified as the details of this case came to light.

However, the president of the Atheists for the Separation of Common Sense and Public Policy has cautioned against making moral judgments in this case. He stated, "Our society has progressed beyond the oppression of religious dogma. No one believes in a divine being arbitrarily handing out moral edicts from heaven anymore. Without a transcendent lawgiver, we have no basis or need for morality. Therefore, we have no basis or need for criticizing another's behavior. We may not like abuse and cannibalism, but we must accept it as a valuable form of self expression." **

The other story is about the Massachusetts high school which reported a rash of teenage pregnancies. According to officials at Gloucester High, at least seventeen girls, all of them under the age of 16, have become pregnant at one time. It was alleged that the girls, all unmarried and living with their parents, made a pregnancy pact. School officials became suspicious when the nurse administered at least 150 pregnancy tests in the last seven months, with several of the girls returning for multiple tests. Apparently some of the girls were continually disappointed until they finally tested positive. Further suspicion arose when it was discovered that many of the girls had no relationship whatsoever with the fathers of their babies. It seems that the girls gave little consideration to who fathered their babies. One of the fathers was a 24 year old homeless man. School officials, parents and community activists disagree over what caused the sudden increase of teenage pregnancies.

However, an Evolutionary Biologist from a neighboring university suggests that the girls have demonstrated a tremendous evolutionary advantage. The professor explains that mammals have a limited number of years suitable for reproduction, known as the breeding stage. By breeding very early in the breeding stage, humans and other primates can increase the total number of offspring per female by 27%, thereby maximizing the breeding stage and increasing the propagation of the species. The professor stated, "It is not necessarily to ascribe blame or guilt to what amounts to an irresistible and natural evolutionary breakthrough. **

Of course the president of the Atheists for the Separation of Common Sense and Public Policy and the Evolutionary Biologist were fictitious, but the other facts regarding both stories were what was reported in the news media. The question begs, however, to ask about the morality of those mentioned in the stories. Furthermore, If you are a moral person, you were probably sickened by these events.

There actually are some schools in this nation who refuse to teach morality because it has roots in religion, Instead, these schools teach the psychology of life and look at the importance of the self importance of the persons involved in a particular circumstance. When schools leave morality out, it is to proclaim that you don't need religion to solve problems.

The main problem with this train of thought is Michael Jacques. Jacques was the uncle of 12 year old Brooke Bennett whom he murdered. Furthermore, Jacques was a convicted rapist and kidnapper who was sentenced to 6 (THAT IS CORRECT…SIX!!!!) years for RAPE. He only served 4½ years, getting early parole because of good behavior. It was proclaimed that he was rehabilitated. OBVIOUSLY NOT. Jacques is also a father.

Without morality, society would simply observe this with no revulsion and merely have and attitude of bewilderment at the most. And that is essentially what a society bent on removing religion will end up as.

Morality DOES have its origin in religion. American society was started with Judeo-Christian principles that are specifically centered around the Ten Commandments.

I blogged about that before so I won't do it again here.

God designed law to be a mirror for us to examine ourselves. Furthermore, God has given each of us a conscience: "They show that in their hearts they know what is right and wrong, just as the law commands. And they show this by their consciences. Sometimes their thoughts tell them they did wrong, and sometimes their thoughts tell them they did right." - Romans 2:15

That being said, I'll bet that some of you non-Christians or non-religious people out there would acknowledge that you were disgusted by the two stories above. That is your conscience of knowing right from wrong and the moral implications of that knowledge keeping your morality in check.

As long as American society continues to promulgate a culture that devalues morality and promotes a cloudy, undefined system of justice, young boys will continue to be abused, teen girls will continue to be promiscuous, and rapists will never get the legal punishment they deserve.

Consider where you stand on morality. Make sure those whom aspire to political office are of the same mind.

**The above fictitious additions to the news stories were taken from the show "Wretched."

Dick MOrris on the O'Reilly Factor

Two things out of this one:

1. Maybe we need to look at the civil rights demands of the 80’s and 90’s through divesting that pressured South Africa to end apartheid. G.E. and other countries are still doing business with Iran. The sooner we can bankrupt Iran, the easier they will be to deal with.
2. I had always known that the main news media outlets were presenting lies when it came to terrorism…to the point of treason it seems.

Integrity and character in leadership...McCain is qualified.

The hoopla over McCain’s military service has been spinning like an out-of-control top

No… military service alone does NOT qualify one to be President. However, let’s place all this in context.

Since John McCain started running for president, the media has declared him their darling, including show great reverence for his military life……. until recently.

Since McCain became the GOP’s presumptive candidate, the main stream military seems to have forgotten that he served in the war in Viet Nam with distinction and honor. He survived a naval disaster that killed 134 and yet decided to do his duty and stay to fight for freedom in that unforgettable war.

Nope, that doesn’t qualify McCain to be president. However McCain’s honor goes to the point of surviving the Hanoi Hilton; honor that promulgated itself further by him voluntarily staying a POW when offered a chance to leave because of his relation to his father in the Admiralty. John McCain refused to leave as long as his fellow POWs were forced to stay. He stayed in that hell-on-earth for five and one half years. In circumstances so degrading and decimating, John McCain displayed leadership and integrity to not only his fellow POWs, but also to his captors. McCain was tortured repeatedly and placed in solitary confinement for 2 years!

What life or career experience has Barack Obama gone through that even remotely compares to that?

On Sunday, June 29, 2008, retired general Wesley Clark, an Obama supporter, downplayed McCain’s military service on a Sunday talk show. Clark even criticized McCain’s squadron command post. In 1976, after post war rehabilitation and a return to flight status, McCain became commanding officer of a training squadron stationed in Florida. He turned around an undistinguished unit and won the squadron its first Meritorious Unit Commendation. In other words, he showed executive experience by leading a group that was less than average and turned it around to one of success.

What life or career experience has Barack Obama gone through that even remotely compares to that?

In 1981, McCain turned down an Admirals star in favor of running for congress where he felt he could do more good for the nation. He moved to Arizona and became a Vice-President of Public Relations for a large beer distributorship. Gaining the trust of the residents and leaders of his newly adopted home state, he won the election soundly. In other words, he left his chosen, life-long career and all its benefits and prestige and then an executive position in favor of serving as a representative to the people of Arizona.

What life or career experience has Barack Obama gone through that even remotely compares to that?

Now, in context, if you take each of those things, would they automatically qualify John McCain to be the President of the United States? Nope. But, if you take them together, again in context, and add them to the rest of his life and experience, does that qualify him to be President? Nope again. And yet, since McCain does meet the constitutionally listed requirements, if you apply his life experiences to that, he is abundantly qualified and experienced and even desirable and president.

In the same venue that we have discussed one’s faith being a qualification, we can really discuss experience. Neither faith nor experience are requirements. However, the things that are mandatory for every voter to judge are integrity and character. And there is not way that anyone can argue with John McCain’s integrity and character.

There are so many things that I, personally dislike about John McCain’s politics. He has been too liberal in some things and too eager to compromise in others. However, when compared to Barack Obama, McCain is a much better choice. Obama has been rated the MOST liberal senator.

And even though I was not happy that McCain became the presumptive GOP nominee, I absolutely trust him over Obama in three key areas.

1. McCain has promised to nominate Supreme Court judges that will interpret the law and not legislate from the bench.
2. McCain will deal with the war on terror in a way that will keep America safer than what Obama promises.
3. Of the two candidates, McCain is the only one who would handle another surprise terrorist attack similar to 9/11. Obama has NEVER had to deal with ANY pressure or stress such as that.

Oh, how the times have changed. The main stream media used to carry McCain on a throned litter of heroism. Now, they treat McCain like the enemy he so valiantly fights against.

The TRUE Enemy shows up in a NC democrat

Since the topic of the true enemy was brought up by our good buddy, Joshua P. Allem, this story seems to fall in line with it. Yet it still shocks me to no end!

I really don’t have to comment on this one, do I?

Democratic Party official accused in satanic rape, kidnapping

Woman, husband said to shackle victims to beds, keep them in dog cages without food

© 2008 WorldNetDaily

A Democratic Party official and her husband are facing charges in connection with alleged satanic rituals involving the kidnap, rape and starvation of another couple in North Carolina.

Joy Johnson, 30, a vice-chairwoman of the Durham County Democratic Party and vice chairwoman of the Young Democrats, made an appearance in court yesterday after she and her spouse, Joseph Craig, were arrested Friday.

Craig, 25, is charged with second-degree rape, second-degree kidnapping and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon for an incident in January and another in May. Johnson is charged with two counts of aiding and abetting.

According to published and broadcast reports, prosecutors said a man and a woman met Craig through a shared interest in Satan worship, although the couple never consented to any physical abuse.
Craig allegedly shackled his victims to beds, kept them in dog cages and starved them inside his home. Police say he beat the man with a cane and a cord, and raped the woman.

"This goes well above what they were interested in doing," Mark McCullough, an assistant district attorney, told WTVD-TV.

McCullough was unsuccessful yesterday in having Judge Nancy Gordon increase Johnson's bail to $500,000 from the $270,000 set by a magistrate.

"Part of the allegations are that satanic worship is part of this case," he told the Raleigh News & Observer.
State Sen. Floyd McKissick, D-Durham, said he had been told Johnson had resigned her positions with the party.

"I was absolutely shocked and flabbergasted," McKissick told the paper. "You never would have suspected allegations that she would have had any participation in these rituals."

Along with her interest in the Democratic Party, Johnson is one of the driving forces of a New Age website called "Indigo Dawn," a name which, according to the site, was given to Johnson during a meditation vision.

"She decided to explore the New Age community more, and after taking a course in Reiki healing, experiencing past-life regression along with direct guidance from her spirit guides, she confirmed that her destiny was to help bring about the New Age on Earth," Johnson's online biography states. "Joy shared her vision with her husband, Joe; as a result the Indigo Dawn was founded to raise the vibration of energy on Earth."

Among the services Johnson offers online are "intuitive guidance, past-life regression, spirit guide communication and healing and cleansing."
